Three “most logical" sites proposed for Oregon’s new student union building are pictured above. At
the top is the Fiji site, close to the library, and almost the direct center of the University student
population; middle view shows possible area for construction near the campus dads' gates, also
“handy" and in more colorful natural surroundings; final “shot” pictures the Sheldon lot, close to the
corner of 14th and University, with the advantage of less expensive construction.

To Many Isles
By ANN CARR
From the snowbound coa3t of
New England to Seattle, Wash
ington, by way of Panama, was
the course shown by Captain
Dwight Long on the screen last
night in McArthur court.
Captain Dwight left his home
in Washington six years ago,
when he was 21, and sailed 35,000
miles around the world in a 32
foot sailing vessel, The Idle Hour.
This is the smallest craft ever to
have completed such a voyage.
“I did not find what I wanted
at the University of Washing
ton,” the modem Magellan ex
plained, ‘‘and I thought a world
cruise at my own speed would be
a more liberal education.”
At the beginning of his voyage,
Captain Long visited Ex-Presi
dent Hoover in California, who
gave him fishing tackle, and at
the end of his trip he showed his
pictures to President Roosevelt
and family in Washington, D.C.
In the course shown on the
color film last night, the young
voyager went to Bermuda, the
Bahamas, Jamaica, Panama,
Darien Indian country, Cocos is
land, and the Galapagos isles.
The film showed such oddities
as penguins on the equator,
Snaps Show Building Lots
Union Sites Investigated
A roving reporter went for a ride yesterday.
His tour took him to the ball park, to the millrace, round and about
the campus, and finally ... to three top-ranking student union sites.
Camera in hand and one eye trained as a nose for news, the reporter
carefully plotted his course. The story had come to him as an after*
thought of his spring ride. Now that he realized his mission he was
on the track of “big game.”
Setting up his camera happily
upon reaching the first site, the
photo-reporter adjusted lens,
light, and landscape. Then, aim
ing straight at the center of his
diligent search—he snapped the
The result ... a Fiji haircut.
After two more tries, search
and care were rewarded, and out
came the picture of upper left.
Central, handy for all occa
sions, the actual focal point of
student population, the “rover”
had attained his first goal. He
knew full well the advantages of
this location. Not only was it
central, it offered large grounds
for expansion, upon construction
of the next unit of Union.
Almost over confident, he
packed up camera, pitched into
the remaining job with increased
zest, and set out anew . . . this
time his goal was the trees.
Large and small, a part of
campus atmosphere on Oregon’s
northern extremities, these trees
provide the background for the
newly-painted, green campus

Also a handy location, property
entirely owned by the University,
this would offer a beautiful sight

half completed by this time,
across the campus the reporter
trotted on his way to Thirteenth
and University streets.
There he completed the final
round of his campus round robin.

His little job completed, the
pictures tucked into his camera,
the scenarist returned home from
the gay spring light to his dark
room. There among shadows, and
the quiet trickle of developing
fluid, he determined to write his
story—the story of student union
and of sites—of promised build
ings—and of promised lands.
His story completed, his pic
trues developed, he turned in his
results. Contented, for the “rov
er” had done a big day’s job, he
He went home to sleep and
dreamed—of student union.

Of First Lady
Work to Dominate
By MILDRED WILSON
There won’t be many spare
minutes for Mrs. Franklin D.
Roosevelt, first lady of the land,
when she pays her first visit to
Eugene next Wednesday to speak
before students on "Cultural Re
lationships Between the Ameri
For a tentative outline, slight
ly imaginary, of her schedule for
the day, one must take in to ac
count first the writing of her
column, "My Day,” which must
be sent to the syndicate office.
It has never been late since she
has been writing her daily expe
riences—and she probably won’t
let her Eugene visit interfere
with her record for promptness.
Then there is always a huge
stack of letters which must be
gone over with the help of the
first lady’s secretary, Miss Mal
vina Thompson, and the letters
also have to be answered.
Among other things she has
to contend with, even on lecture
tours, are the reading of proofs
of articles which she has written
for various magazines, or per
haps the polishing up of a report
to be given before some women’s
And even a first lady has to
eat, and rest occasionally.
Of course, the evening will be
well taken up with delivering her
lecture at McArthur court.
Maybe, if she has an extra
minute somewhere, she might
start another book.
