Oregon Meteorite to Be Returned to Native State Once again a piece of an Oregon meteorite has been returned to its native state; once again the Uni versity has profited by University Astronomer P. Hugh Pruett's ni terest in meteorites. After a period of correspondence, Dr. Cldye Fisher, curator of the Hayden planetarium in New York, wrote that he was sending a three pound piece of the Sam's valley meteorite to Mr. Pruett. If they would cut and polish it, the Uni versity could have a third of the mass, Dr. Fischer wrote. Of the three Oregon meteorites, the least is known about this me teorite. It was one in Sam’s valley, 10 miles northwest of Medford in 1894. It, like the most famous Ore gon meteorite, is an iron meteorite, a medium ochtrahedite. Although some reports say that the mass fell in one piece, some authorities disagree. Prof. Pruett says that it most likely fell in at least two pieces. The total mass weighed 15.25 pounds, and the three-pound piece sent by Dr. Fisher had never been cut. Cutting the meteorite proved to be an almost impossible job. Prof. Pruett had warned C. A. Coulter of the Eugene high school faculty that iron meteorites were difficult to cut. Because of the nickel in the meteorites those of the iron type are exceedingly “tough," Prof. Pruett said. After a futile attempt with the motor-driven saw', Mr. Coulter and his son Donald turned to the hack saw. At the end of approximately nine hours—and the saw blades— the last opposition gave wray and (Please turn to page four) Her Work Progresses Nancy Jane Reasoner . . . cf Seattle, has been prominent in pro meting the National Youth Hostel movement in the Northwest.

Howard, profes sor of law, and Essel R. Dillavou, head of the department of business law at the University of Illinois, is going to press, it was announced yesterday by Professor Howard. The textbook has been widely used in schools throughout the United States. Professor Howard said that at the last report 186 schools were using the book. The objectives of the book, as set forth by the authors in the preface to the first edition, are: "Preparation of a text supplement ed with case material in such form that both the student and the teacher may have before them a brief statement of the fundamental principles, correlated with a selec tion of cases that will demonstrate how these principles apply to con crete cases . . . combining the text method and the case method so that the usual business law sub jects taught in colleges and univer sities may be covered in the time allotted for such subjects.” The combination of text and case method has been praised by many teachers. In his review of the second edition of the book, W. W. Kennerly of the University of Tennessee law school said: "Dil lavou and Howard’s first edition has proved to be one of the better textbooks that combine treatise and case material.” E. S. Wollaver of the University of Michigan said: “The book on the whole is a very commendable piece of work carefully written and clear. The merit of the book stands on the sound scholarship of the men who write it, since they are both eminent in the field of business law, it follows their book is a well done piece of work.” The first edition of the book was published in 1928 and the second in 1933. It is published by Prentice Hall incorporated. GAGE HELPS REALTORS WITH RECENT ARTICLE Recently Daniel D.

Worm-Eating Stater Shunned By Fairer Sex The worm has turned, and Marion Salisbury, Oregon Stater who recently devoured 139 angle worms, instead of receiving the acclaim of students, is being shunned, especially by the fairer sex. Young Salisbury's bizarre at tempt to ensnare fate backfired, and the adverse publicity he re ceived as a champion was very much unlike that accorded Ore gon's national basketball cham pions, who were welcomed at the railroad station by hordes of girls clamoring for autographs. At last reports Salisbury was ready to agree that fame is none too easy to grasp.

Answers Many And Varied; Love Commonest By BETTY HAMILTON’ Attention, you be-pinned beau ties! Why are you wearing that fraternity pin? Is it for con venience, love, or because the custom is to wear them if you’re asked? A remark overheard in the Side seems to be the reason for most of the pins shining on spring sweaters—“Well, I don't have to worry about who is tak ing me to the dance. I have a fraternity pin.” After making this remark the girl turned around and walked out leaving her listeners gaping after her. Romances Short-Ivied But isn’t this partially true? How many “college romances” last? Statistics show that only 25 per cent of these college sweethearts ever marry and then nine times out of ten, it’s with another woman. An attempt was made recently to conduct a sur vey as to why fraternity pins were worn by the feminine sex. Needless to say, the attempt was not highly successful. How ever here’s a good frank answer made by a nameless young wo man, “I’ve been in college three years and this year I thought it was about time I take one,’’ she said, adding, “no, I'm not in love.” No Worry About Dates “It’s swell wearing a pin. I never worry about what I am going to do for a date,” said an other anonymous voice over the telephone. Several girls an swered in that manner. The majority of the girls said that they were in love with the man. Every six out of ten of these girls had worn a fraternity pin before, and some of them are now wearing their third. Dinning Saves Money When the question was put up to the men, the answers were not hard to get. “I save money by going steady and I can act just as I darned please around my girl, said one young man. “I planted mine because she was so darned popular; it was the only way I could see her more than twice a week,” said an other. Majority in Love The majority of the men said they were in love with the girl, but when they were asked if they planned on marriage, most of them stammered around giv ing one excuse or another. "Well, marriage is a pretty serious pro position and I do have a lot of school left yet," or "Heck no, I want to see the world before I marry.” Follows I'als’ Example "Well, all my pals planted their pins last term and so I thought I might as well get rid of mine for this term at least," was the frank answer given by a boy who stressed that his name be kept out of it. However when you think it all over, life is pretty short and fraternity pii*s are fraternity ; pins, so what? Elaborate Plans Laid by Churches for Sacred Rituals and Services; JLargest Observance in McArthur Court By BETTY JANE THOMPSON Easter Sunday, the climax of a period of many beautiful and sacred services and rituals in Christian churches through out the world, finds elaborate plans laid by Eugene churches to commemorate one of the two events upon which the Christian religion is based.
