Studies Goal
Mr. Van Nice went to Istanbul
to make a survey and make pic
tures and drawings of the ancient
Santa Sophia church. This church
is reputedly the most perfect ex
ample of Byzantine architecture
in the world.
Dean William Emerson of the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology received a grant from the
Byzantine institute which he en
trusted to Mr. Van Nice to make
a survey of the old church. Re
cently under Mustapha Kamel
Ataturk it was made a national
Five Years
Mr. Van Nice had a five year
contract and decided to stay on
when war broke. He had been
working closely with the Turkish
government and had been living
at Roberts college at Bebek, a
suburb of Istanbul.
Santa Sophia church was built
by Constantine the Great. When
the Moslems took the city, they
whitewashed the famous mosaic
displayed on its walls. This white
wash has now been removed.
Mr. Van Nice was graduated
from Oregon in 1934 and received
his master’s degree in architec
ture from Massachusetts Institute
of Technology.
Mrs. Van Nice is an Oregon
graduate also.

were served first, and the women
were not allowed to eat until all
the men had finished.
However, “in deference to wo
men, no Oregon man ever smokes
on the campus.”
After their labors were over,
the men serpentined around the
campus, yelling “Oregon, Oski

Oregon!” The women were not

Many unusual organizations have been born at the University
during its history, and the Bone Breakers’ club is one of the most
unusual. Mrs. Marion Watts, who was injured when struck by an
automobile fall term, is president by virtue of the most recent frac
ture. One must have a break of some kind to boast of before being
eligible for membership. Mrs. Watts is here being congratulated
by the originator of the idea, Marguerite Carpenter.
New Victim Heads
Broken Bone Club
Mrs. Marian P. Watts. Univer
sity librarian, is the new presi
dent of the Bone Breakers club,
a band for mutual support. The
club is composed of University
employees who have broken
According- to the constitution,
only those who have submitted to
adhesive tape, X-rays, plaster
casts, and a doctor’s bill are eligi
ble to belong to this exclusive and
unique organization.
Every so often, as specified in
the aforementioned constitution
which was written by Marguer
ite Carpenter, a charter member
of the club, the group meets for
refreshments. These shall consist
of calcium tablets and cod liver
Mrs. Watts’ position as presi
dent is warranted by the fact that
she complied with the article
which specifies that the president
shall be the member who has
most recently broken bones or
who has broken the most bones
at one time. Since Mrs. Watts is
not only the most recent, but also
the most complete case of broken
bones in the club, she now enjoys
( ?) the honor of presiding.

Measles Epidemic
Sets New Record
Measles cases treated this year
at the infirmary have reached a
new high, 249 cases, according to
Dr. Fred N. Miller, director of
the University health service.
Previous high in recent years
was 1935-36 with 95 cases. There
were no cases reported on the
campus in either 1937-38 or 1939
40. One case was treated at the
infirmary in 1936-37. There were
two cases in 1938-39.
National figures quoted in the
April 7 issue of Time magazine
report 43,000 cases of measles
this year. “This figure,” the
magazine revealed, “is slightly
less than the all-time high of
1938. Since the current epidemic
has not yet run its course, it may
be the worst in U. S. history.”
Many patients, Dr. Miller said,
have felt sick as much as a week
before breaking out. The disease
is contagious in this stage also,
he said.

To Get Sentence
The call of the pickle barrel
will be heeded today at 12:30 p.m.
at the Side by “convicted” sopho
mores. These anti-shave violators
will feel the wrath of the dunking
squad during the second meeting
of the posse, according to Sheriff
Homer Thomas.
“Ashcomb and Rhea are my
right-hand men, and let me tell
you they will be on hand to
handle their end of the dunking,”
Sheriff Thomas said.
“It’s possible that a bit of spe

ranged for Don Baldridge, who is
supposedly ailing,” Thomas add
