Was Visitor at UO
Art School Friday
Dr. Paul Ganz, famous art critic
and lecturer from the University
of Vienna, was a visitor at the

only long enough to say hello and
The brilliant art authority, bro
ther of the eminent musician, Ru
dolph Ganz, (who once taught Ore
gon’s own John Stark Evans, pro
fessor of music) visited the art
school for an hour and a half, then
returned to Portland.
Dr. Ganz was originally sched
uled to speak to an assembly of
art students Wednesday, and to
attend a couple of luncheons on
the jcampus, but became mixed up

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

Professors’ Revised Law
Book to Go to Press Soon
The revised third edition of
“Principles of Business Law” writ
ten by Charles G. 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.
Recently Daniel D. Gage Jr., as
sociate professor of business ad
ministration and instructor in real
estate was requested by Sunset
magazine to suggest a list of fif
teen points that one should re
member in purchasing land. The
purpose of this, as was said by
Sunset magazine, is to aid pros
pective land buyers in avoiding the
| common purchaser's faults.

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
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.

Why Do They Pin? Answers Many
And Varied; Love Commonest
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
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
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
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
Easter Sunday, the climax of a period of many beautiful

head of the Student Christian
council, the service will be con- J
ducted by members of the Eugene |
ministerial association and of the

men, who will play for the service.
Congregational singing of two
hymns, "Holy, Holy, Holy” and j.
"Come Thou Almighty King" will'
be followed by the invocation given i
by Major Clarence Ford of the,
Salvation Army. 1
Pi'ofessor Charles G. Howard of
the law school faculty, chairman
of the faculty committee on re
ligious and spiritual activities, will
read the scripture. Dr. Norman K.
Tully, minister of the Central
Presbyterian church, will lead in
Choirs to Combine
Directed by Glenn Griffith, the
combined choirs of the University
polyphonic choir, the Junior Glee
men, the Eugene high school glee
club, and the Methodist, Baptist,
and Christian church choirs will
sing a Russian hymn.
Following Dr. Morris’ sermon,
the group will sing “When I Sur
vey the Wondrous Cross,” and Dr.
B. Earle Parker of the Methodist
Episcopal church will pronounce
the benediction.
Fund Need Cited
Although a formal collection will
not be taken, plates will be placed
at the door. Money receievd will go
toward the fund the Student
Christian council is raising to help
send Anne Dean, one of the coun
cil members, to the international
Christian youth conference in Am
sterdam, Holland this summer.
Part of the offering will also be
given to the Far Eastern student

vice were formulated by the Stu
dent Christian council chairmaned
by Bob Tindall. The Eugene min
isterial association also cooperated
with the student committee.
Special communion services, bap
tismal, and reception of members
besides special music will be held
in several of the local churches.
Double Services Slated
Two or more services will be
held in the morning at some of
the churches. The Congregational
church will hold services at 9 and
IX o’clock. St. Mary's Episcopal
church will have three communion
services at 6:30, 8 and 11 o’clock.
Choirs Busy at Night
