“According to letters, Pearson
is about 22, 6 feet 3, and blond,”
Dr. Breen laughed. “We haven't
seen him for nine years.
Going to Drop In
“My nephew isn’t a very good
correspondent,” he admitted rue
fully. “However, his father wrote
to say that Pearson would be
in town with the band and will
stop at the house to see us.”
His nephew started in music
early, Dr. Breen remembers. Nine
years ago, when Dr. and Mrs.
Breen last saw him, he was well
along as a trombonist.
“He has always wanted to
make music his career,” Dr.
Breen declared. “He should do
well, too, since both his parents
DeJager was born in Grand
Rapids, Michigan, and attended
the University of Cincinnati. Dr.
Breen estimates that he has been

us,” Dr. Breen mused.

To Law School
Of Bar Association
Robert F. Maguire, Portland
attorney and president of the Ore
gon Bar association spoke Thurs
day morning before the law school
student body and faculty on “The
Lawyer and the Bar.”
Dealing specifically with the
functions of the American bar as
sociation who sponsored his talk,
Mr. Maguire stated:
“The main good that the legal
profession can contribute to mod
ern life is the knowledge it has
of the causes and principles which
underlie stated rules of conduct.”
He deplored the lack of inter
est of many lawyers in not fa
miliarizing themselves with all
phases of laws.
The American bar association
is divided into sections covering
all phases of law. Each group is
composed of men whose specialty
is a certain field of law.
Meetings are held by these var
ied groups for the purpose of an
alyzing statutes, making correc
tions in laws, and determining
what legislative policies should
be pursued by the association.
The decisions are compiled and
made available to all state and
local bar societies.
“Lawyers are the guides of any
civilization. The bar association
has undertaken the duty of at
tempting to see that the funda
mental rights of citizens are pro
tected,” Mr. Maguire declared.

Ways to Wear White
Many students have been won
dering when is the proper time to
wear a white dinner jacket. Some
of them have been purchasing
them to use as sport coats, but
this is entirely wrong.
Dinner jackets should not be
worn before 6 o’clock, and then
the only proper type is that with
a shawl collar. White coats with
out a shawl collar are appro
priate only when worn as part of
a white suit.
Near End of City Job
By FRED TIMMEN
With a year and a half of work
completed, 50,000 ordinances in
dexed, classified, appealed and
amended, the bureau of munici
pal research and service is enter
ing' its last year in codifying
Portland’s 79,000 city ordinances.
Under the direction of Herman
Kehrli, director of the bureau,
the work is being carried on in
Portland. Thirty-seven WPA
workers and five non-WPA su
pervisors, three of them Oregon
graduates, are handling the task.
This is the largest number of
ordinances and regulations in
any of the 40 Oregon cities whose
constitutions have thus far been
revised by the bureau.
“We have indexed 50,000 of the
Inactive ordinances, those that
are not regulatory, but dealing
with past situations,” Mr. Kehrli
said in a recent interview.
Virgil Langtree, ’34; Tony
Amato, and Eugene Niel, ’40, are
supervisors on the Portland job.
Charters of eleven other Oregon
cities are also being revised and
Numerous outdated and out
moded laws have been unearthed
in the course of the five-year
functioning of the bureau. For
instance, an ordinance passed in
1900 in Seaside and never re
pealed makes it illegal to ride bi
cycles on the sidewalk without
providing them, with a burning
