Infirmary Notice
To the Emerald:
Due to an increase in the
number of cases of measles be
ing taken care of in the Stu
dent Health Service hospital
there will be no visiting until
further notice. We regret the
necessity for taking this pre
caution, but in view of the dan
ger involved to visitors and the
difficulty in having the nurses
on duty take care of the large
number of patients and also
check the isolation of many of
our patients, it seems necessary
to eliminate all visiting.

Coed Crackshot Says
'No Place Like Home'
Big shot is Jean Cassidy, sophomore member of the rifle team who
visited Seattle last weekend for a match with the University of Wash
ington’s team.
Jean’s intelligent brown eyes not only hit the mark with people
but also with the target. She started out as a novice in rifle this fall
and was promoted to the team in no time at all.
“We had a wonderful time in Seattle,” said Jean. “It was very
; *o%gy—we had to start places a
half hour ahead of time, but we
! saw a basketball game at the Uni
versity of Washington, and we also
j saw the army on the way up to
1 Seattle.”
The girls in Jean’s group drove
! up with Captain W. E. Read of
the Oregon ROTC barracks.
‘‘We stopped at Fort Lewis and
Fort Vancouver; there were four
of us girls and 45,000 soldiers.
I “Everyone of us ate all the
time—coffee, candy bars, cokes,
steaks—anything to chew on.”
Jean suddenly thought of some
thing: “It just made me realize
when I went up there to Washing
ton, how much I love this Univer
sity; you couldn't sell Washing
ton to me. And at the Wash
ington ROTC barracks they gave
us old floors mats to lie on when
we shot, instead of nice clean ones.
I certainly like Oregon!”

Speaker Sees
Value of Dam
To Northwest
Hodge Declares
Bonneville Power
Being Badly Used
“Electro chemical and metal
lurgical industries are the birth
right of Bonneville dam and of
Oregon,” stated Dr. E. F. Hodge,
professor of economic geology at
Oregon State College, in his lec
ture last night in the faculty room
of Friendly.
Bonneville is one of the most re
markable dams in the world and is
located on the largest river of the
Pacific coast of either North or
South America. Its site on the tide
water of the Columbia makes it a
natural location for industrial plant
and shipping activities, according
to the speaker. It is nature’s gift
to the future.
Dr. Hodges told his audience
that for manv years geologists had
searched for a suitable place to
dam the lower Columbia and re
ported absolutely no success. The
oroiect was set aside as impossible
because of the soft clav type of
rock in the formation of the north
wall of the river gorge. When en
gineers found that nature had
stepped into the picture with a
land slide and provided the neces
sary bed rock for a foundation,
many of these former “critics”
were unable to accept the fact that
that the dam was not only possible
but practical.
“I made a considerable sum of
money answering letters from all
over the country which said the
dam wouldn’t work,” said the
speaker. He was one of the con
sulting geologists who decided it
would. Some of these letters even |
came from officials in the presi-;
dent’s office.
He explained that possible dan
ger from further movement of the
landslide was ruled out by the
straight growth of trees and the
stability of railroads.
At the present time the power
manufactured at Bonneville is not
being put to its rightful use, he
said. Industry is the destiny of a
power source located on the edge
| of the ocean on one of the world's
trade routes. "I regret every day
that it is being used for anything
else,” the geologist stated.
“I believe that the ultimate task
of Bonneville will be to produce
products of the future. The possi
bilities of a western steel industry
and magnesium plants are unlim
ited. We have only just nibbled at
the rich things possible to man.”

Piano Recital
Honors Famed
Musician -Patriot
Mrs. Underwood
Plavs Selections
Of French Artists
That famed Polish patriot and
pianist, Ignace Jan Paderewski,
probably would have been proud
of the performance given Tuesday
night in the music auditorium in
his honor by Aurora Potter Under
wood, pianist and associate pro
fessor of music in the University
school of music.
Mrs. Underwood chose her pro
gram wisely, avoiding both the
spectacular and the hackneyed
selections frequently heard in the
concerts of professional pianists.
Her evening group, which included
compostions from the French com
posers, Rameau and Saint-Saens,
put the audience in a responsive
mood that was held till the con
clusion of the program. One of
the most difficult "little” pieces
of the concert, “Nocturne for the
left hand” by Scriabine, proved
to have melody as well as novelty
as performed by Mrs. Underwood’s
capable hands. Maintaining her
reputation as an adept interpreter
of Brahms and Chopin, the soloist
offered groups from the works of
each of these composers.
It was true tribute to the pian
ist that the audience seemed to
enjoy these compositions as much
as if they were "old favorites,”
which many of them will be now
that they have been interpreted
by Mrs. Underwood.
