    Coming Talk
Tells Present
Russian Fate
By JACK BILLINGS
When William H. Chamberlin
spoke to a University audience
on January 17, 1935, he told a
story about a Russian woman
who said, “I have three sons.
One is an engineer, one is a pro
fessor, and the third is in prison
too.”
This exemplified the state of
communist Russia six years ago.
How has it changed, if it has
changed, and an explanation of
its present conflict with Germany
will feature his talk in Gerlin
ger Thursday, November 13, at
11 a.m.
Columnist
Mr. Chamberlin was a column
ist on the New York Herald-Tri
bune and the Christian Science
Monitor for 15 years and is con
sidered by many United States
authorities as one of three-best
posted journalists on Russian af
fairs, the ether two being Wal
g^r Duranty and H. R. Knicker
bocker.
The speaker has written two
books on Russia: “Russia in the
Iron Age” and “Soviet Russia,”
which has gone through ten edi
tions. The author’s lecture is be
ing arranged by Karl W. On
thank, dean of personnel admin
istration.
Not Flashy
“He isn’t the flashy Jay Allen
type of correspondent,” remarks
Dean Onthank. “But he is well
informed on his subject and can
speak with authority.”
The title of his last University
^lecture was “The Balance Sheet
of the Five-Year Plan,” his talk
on Thursday is under the heading
Of “The Russian Enigma.”
Chamberlin has spoken before
clubs and organizations in Mos
cow where he attempted to inter
pret the Russian situation to the
English speaking residents of
that city.
Brooklyn-Born
He was born in Brooklyn, N.
Y., in 1897, was graduated from
Haverford college and followed
his father and grandfather into
the newspaper profession. In
1920 he married Sonya Tresten,
Russian-born American. He
speaks the Russian language and
is an authority on Russian litera
ture and history.
When here in 1935 Mr. Cham
berlin was asked if journalism
were taught in Soviet Russia.
He replied, “It is, but the meth
ods are somewhat different. A
Oregon Library
Used as Model
Pennsylvania State college
profited by the experience of the
University of Oregon library
when they moved their library
this fall into a new building. This
fact was disclosed in the latest
issue of the Wilson Library Bul
letin. “The Pennsylvania State
college library was modeled chief
ly after the plans of the Univer
sity of Oregon library, whose ex
ecutive assistant, Willis C. War
ren, had written a specific and
most enlightening account of the
moving he had supervised.”
Student Directory Sales
Top Those of Last Year
At least 200 more Student Di
rectories, informally Piggers’
Guides, have been sold this year
than last in an equal number of
selling days, according to Doug
David, business manager.
“The sale is going much faster
this fall than in previous years,”
said David. "Those students who
have not purchased theirs had
better get on the boat or they
will be left without addresses to
which to send their Christmas
cards.”
The guides are being distribut
ed by Kwama and Skull and
Dagger, sophomore service hon
oraries, and are on sale in the
Co-op store. During the first hour
of sales, from 8 to 9 o’clock Friday
morning, more than 300 directories
were sold. David estimates that
2000 had been sold by 5:30 pTn.
Saturday.

those who claim an antipathy
for "classical” music. It is a pity
that more choral music cannot
be heard over the radio. Christ

choral music over the radio, how
ever.
Don’t forget the NBC sym

Russian journalist is taught, in
his first year, how to write prop
aganda; in his second year, how
to write propaganda; and if it
takes him more than two years
to pass his course, the third and
fourth years are devoted to the
scientific learning of how to write
propaganda.”
Radio to Plug
Homecoming
A series of four or more radio
broadcasts to publicize Homecom
ing is being arranged by the radio
publicity committee, according to
Chuck Boice, chairman.
A broadcast from Portland,
with date and station yet to be
announced, is being arranged
now, Boice said. Jerry Lakefish,
senior in business administration,
who is active in campus drama,
is writing the skit for this broad
cast. Boice said that the broad
cast this year would be “differ
ent" from past broadcasts, and
would be handled like a radio
show.
Drama and radio students will
participate in the radio shows,
most of which will be heard over
KOAC and KORE. Marvin Krenk,
instructor in speech, will direct
the radio broadcasts, assisted by
Dorothy Durkee, senior in En
glish. Verne Sellin, sophomore in
music, will handle music for the
shows.

AMUSEMENT, INCORPOR
ATED : Here’s something to
tackle during your spare time to
day, or while waiting for the
game tomorrow*. It all started
back East, and has been slowly
working its way to the coast. It’s
called “Opple-gopple” talk.
Take, for instance, the sen
tence, “See the cat run.” In this
double talk, it would read “Sopple
thopple copplet ropplen.” The
secret is merely to add the tongue
twister “opple” before every
vowel as they appear in each
word. Simple, sure, but it all
started somewhere near New Ha
ven, Connecticut, among the
higher seats of learning.
TRI-DELTidbits: That Jean

in January. House-prexy Eleanor
Beck received a call from home
last week; it was her father’s
voice. “Come home at once,” he
said sternly, and so home Elean

rived back from home with a car,
all her own.
SHORT STORIETTE: “Say,
can you tell me what time it is?”
“Sure
“Okeh, thanks.”
