Step in the Right Direction
rjpill0 problem of Thirteenth street lias long boon a thorn
in llio side of Die University. Hisect.ing the campus as
it does tin* street presents a complicated traffic problem.
The north-south pedestrian traffic often comes into conflict
with the east-west vehicular traffic. Most observers have
marveled that the accident rate on the danger area is as low
as it has been.
Last year the city council had Thirteenth between Uni
versity and Kincaid streets designated as a “slow” area. This
regulation proved of temporary value, but as the signs wore
off the street, the old habits of speeding through the campus
$ # * *
action of the council Tuesday evening in putting in
stop signs at both ends of the “campus bisector” is a
step towards solving the problem. While stop signs will not,
of course, remove all of the difficulties, they should slow
down Hu1 flow of traffic.
Elimination of speeding, or at least curtailment of if,
improves the condition for the campus, as far as the hazard
to the life and limbs of students is concerned. Another small
value to students will be that the noise should be cut down.
Roaring motors and tooting horns should not be quite as
pestiferously noisy once the whizzing through is stopped.
The screech of brakes should lie definitely eliminated.
^TOPPING through traffic at both ends of the campus
sector of Thirteenth brings to mind Professor F. A. Cuth
bert’s plan to make a double lane road in this area with a
circular “traffic-discourager” at the quadrangle of Oregon,
Commerce, Condon and the humanities building. Installation
of stop signs might well be the first step in putting this
long-term program of campus unification info effect.
The possibility 'of having a beautiful and complete
campus has long been a dream in the minds of planners. They
argue, and with admirable logic, that the University campus
should not be cut with a main thoroughfare. The dangers in
congestion alone, without even considering the esthetic
values, give heavy weight to their statements.
Putting stop signs at the ends of the campus “no man’s
land” may be far from the ultimate goal, but it is a concrete
step in the right direction.
The Case for Discussion
^J.ROUP discussion presents n groat field for development
of imagination and individualistic thinking. Discussion
sections, assembled to talk on almost any subject, have
proved their worth many times and in many institutions.
College classes, certainly designed for the dissemination of
as much knowledge of great latitude as possible in a short
time, seem sometimes to get iido the rut of relying too much
on the thoughts and ideas of the instructor.
While it is acknowledged that establishment of more
seminar-type groups at the University might bo difficult
because of the large student registration in many classes
thus requiring a larger faculty and additional expenditure—
a trend toward such a goal would be of the greatest value.
Worth of this type of education has been shown for manv
years by Reed college. The Portland institution has been
outstanding in scholarship among Northwest schools of
* * * #
CMMINARS do not lend themselves to every field of edu
cation. Rut outside tin* exact sciences, their value is
widely recognized. Craduate courses, organized with small
enrollments to bring out not only the opinions and ideas of
the instructors but also those of the students provide a good
example for this contention.
Schools with small enrollments have an advantage over
larger institutions in the development of this field. Advance
ment, however, could be made in classes at schools such as
Oregon if faculty members would allow more discussion.
Lecture courses tend to feature memorization of facts not
to make the student advance his own ideas and information.
Facts alone do not constitute an education. The student must
h'arn to inakc use of these facts in his own thinking. Seminar
schoolwork is not an essential evolution which must go into
immediate ctfeet but it is a trend which schools must more
and more prepare to realize.—P.R.
According to a recent dispatch irom London, taxi drivers
and chauffeurs in that city enliven many occasions by their
wit and sarcasm. The story is told of a driver, who seeing a
pedestrian in bis way, stopped, leaned out of his car and
very politely inquired:
“I say, old man, may 1 ask what are your plans?”
NoMore Whispering About Sex Education
Collegians Say in Survey; Prudery Out
As Compulsory Courses Find Favor
Ey Student Opinion Surveys of America
AUSTIN, Texas, February 15 Sex education
should no longer be a matter to be whispered
about, a large majority of American college stu
dents believe. In fact, almost 62 per cent of them
favor making courses on the principles of sex
compulsory, a nation-wide survey by the Student
Opinion Surveys of America shows.
In summary, comments from collegians every
where sounded like this: "We have been prudish
about this matter too long. Authoritative informa
tion has either been hidden or prohibited from
Prudery Loses Before Progress
Time has begun to change this attitude, it
would appear, for many colleges are now offering
marriage courses. Students regard this an im
portant part of their education when they say they
believe such instruction should even be made
obligatory. Interviewers have asked this question
to a scientifically-defined cross-section from coast
to coast: 'Should sex education courses in colleges
be made compulsory?”
Yes, say 61.9 per cent.
No, say 38.1 per cent.
Of the schools where the survey was held, only
about 10 per cent had required courses. Perhaps of
some significance is the fact that the poll shows
women in the South and West less in favor of
the idea than women elsewhere in the nation. Men
agree pretty well everywhere.
Not All Favor, However
Speaking for the majority, a North Dakota
state teachers college junior said, "Sex education
should have begun back in high school—during
adolescence.” Some believe upperclassmen only
should receive instruction. A Baylor university
medical student would include personal hygiene
and causes and results of venereal disease. How
ever, there are many who believe all sex matters
should be left to the parents, and a Northwestern
coed declares. “You should go to. your doctor for
that information.” In some college students say
there is not enough room in the courses offered.
Others favor voluntary courses only.
In America the movement toward more sex
education was begun in 1910 under the leadership
of Dr. Prince A. Morrow. Sex education in its
largest sense has been defined as that including
scientific, social, ethical, and religious instruction
and influence that may in some way, directly or
indirectly, help young people to solve the sex
problems that will inevitably be encountered by
every normal person.
