Southern Tour
Landscape Artists
Spend Vacation
Near Los Angeles
Approximately thirty landscape
architecture students from the
University of Oregon and Oregon
State college tal'e leave for Los
Angeles, Friday, March 11, on the
department’s annual spring vaca
tion field trip.
The group, accompanied by Pro
fessor and Mrs. F. A. Guthbert,
and Mr. D. E. Thompson, of the
landscape architecture department,
and Professor W. Dorr Legg of
Oregon State visited some famous
parks, campuses, and residential
areas in the Los Angeles sector,
which are good examples of land
scape architecture.
In addition, numerous housing
developments and city planning
projects were all included in the
group’s itinerary. For these rea
sons, a few students in the regular
architecture school accompanied
the landscapers on the trip.
Ralph Cornell, noted Los An
geles architect, George Hunting
ton, and Dorothy Wright, former
Oregonians, arranged the sched
ule for the college group. These
southern-Californians also acted as
guides while the students were in
the city.
The schedule included visits to
the Elysian park, Santa Anita
race track, UCLA campu3, Pasa
dena area, Bel-Air district, Hol
lywood, and Huntington park.

Tunnels to Contain
Extension of Wires
For Phone System
Extension of the underground
telephone wire system on the cam
pus is being made by the Pacific
Telephone and Telegraph company.
Wirps in lead cables are being
placed in the tunnels between
Thirteenth street, the extension
building, and the heating plant.
"This will be an improvement
to the whole setup as it will rid
the campus of more telephone
wires strung around from pole to
pole," stated I.). L. Lewis, superin
tendent of the physical plant.
The tunnels which will extend
from the heating plant to the mu
sic school when completed will con
tain hot water and steam pipes,
and wires for electricity as well
as the telephone wires.

Official registration figures just
released from the registrar’s of
fice list a total of 347G students

This shows only a very slight In
crease over the 3459 registration
of winter term last year.
Although men still hold the lead
over women, the 2115 registerd
shows a 2 per cent decrease over
last winter term figures, while the
1361 women registered are an in
crease of 5 per cent.
Houses Plan Renovations
For Spring Term Desserts
Desserts during fall term are vi
tal. They give new students a
chance to get acquainted and help
tile flock who got themselves "un
pinned” over the summer to get
back in the swim. But by spring
term, when everybody knows ev
erybody anyway, desserts need
something to give them zest for
There’s no better place for that
new lease on life to begin than in
the food. For six months previous
to that eventful day in March when
spring begins, white-jacketed boys
have been slipping a slab of ice
cream under desserting noses with
half-apologetic shoves.
From then until June, the usual
policy is to merely add a few
crushed strawberries on top. Or
else strawberry shortcake. Now ev
erybody loves those first straw
berries, and the guests have prob
ably bribed their cook into serving

Be Unusual
So try something' different. If
ice cream seems inevitable, why
not use refreshing' pink pepper
mint in tall sherbet glasses instead
of the inevitable brick model ?
Strive to give the table that look
of "spring” that makes the party
a success.
The girls next door might be
surprised if they are confronted
with a gay red piece of early melon
sometime in May, but they’ll think
it’s novel. Iced coffee instead of
the usual hot variety, or punch,
tea, and other cool drinks will give
a dessert a quality of restfulness.
New Ideas
Several houses are dwelling on
spring term variety in entertain
ment. Bowling and skating parties
are in line for their share of at
tention. After a session of activity,
the field is wide open for more
substantial food, for coeds have
big appetites after a workout, too,
and they’ll dive into a stack of
sandwiches with gusto.

Independents are her special

that the ice is delivered on time.
She also guards the antique cop

Her only objection to activities
is the muddy tracks of late-for
class students which spatter across
Alumni hall in rainy weather.
She doesn't think students
change much—except for their
clothes. The boys still eat all the
food that's left, she says, and the
girls still want to know if she has
a bobby pin.
Her contacts are an increasing
source of enjoyment and she speaks
often and emphatically of the "zest

gra, and Ruth Jordan.
Contest Will Feature
Personal Libraries
A personal library contest will
be sponsored by the University
library to celebrate National Book
week, which begins May 3. Cash
prizes for the purchase of books
will be awarded in two divisions,
graduate and undergraduate. En
trance deadline is noon, April 30,
and any registered student’s libra
ry is eligible.
The libraries will be judged on
usefulness to their owners and on
their value as the nucleus of an
interesting library for future years
rather than on the total number of
books or their money value. Text
books are excluded.

Morse Wins Praise
For Dispute-Settling
The "noteworthy accomplish
ments" of Wayne L. Morse, Ore
gon's law dean and Pacific coast
maritime .labor arbitrator, are
praised in "Waterfront. Boss,” an
article by William Flynn In the
February issue of “The Coast.”
The article traces his life and
outlines his legal achievements.
Commending Dean Morse’s arbi
tration policies, it describes the
peace they have brought to the Pa
cific coast’s waterfront.
Honesty and integrity for the ar
bitrator and unqualified respect
for legal rights by the parties to
the dispute are, says this article,
the principles upon which Dean
Morse’s arbitration is based.
The article declares that "his
philosophy of social justice” and
his "respect for constitutional gov
ernment" linked by an "unshakable
trust in the ability of the demo
cratic process to reach valid and
equitable conclusions” form an in
tellectual background which lias
established Dean Morse’s standard
for judgment of labor disputes.
