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!” MR.

Speaker Sees Value of Dam To Northwest Hodge Declares Bonneville Power Being Badly Used By PEGGY KLINE “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.” After All, It's Free ASUO movie Played to a full house. Program was OK, I guess, But what, no Mickey Mouse ? I —J.W.S.

SUBTLE CHARMS 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.
