To Canada
During the summer of 1941 Mr.
Chamberlin visited Canada to
study the common United States
Canadian defense plans, and the
social and economic effects of the
war upon Canada.
“Chamberlin is one of the very
few journalists who also rates
high as an historic source,” said
Eric W. Allen, dean of the school
of journalism, Wednesday. “Ow
ing to a very peculiar set of cir
cumstances he was the only ob
jective-minded person that came
close to the prime actors at crises
of world importance.
“Many of these men are now
dead and the documents de
stroyed, and perhaps more are
being destroyed today. Chamber
lin’s "History of the Russia Revo
lution” is as important to his
torians as his dispatches were to
the journalistic world.”
The speaker will be introduced
by Dean Allen. Bern Sellin will

Wienaiwski, as an opening selec
tion. His accompanist will be

The prospective dukes will give
two yells, not necessarily Oregon
yells or in Oregon style, Russell
said. They may use any yell they
wish, he declared, and the han

the winner.
“Previous experience doesn't

on ability, willingness to learn,
coordination, and ideas.”

Mayflower Presents
Free Mexican Movie
"Alla En El Rancho Chico,” a
Mexican talkie-film, will be
shown Friday November 14, at
4 p.m. at the Mayflower theater.
The cast is Mexican children
who enact a play that could only
happen to “grown ups” according
to Dr. Leavitt Olds Wright, head
of the Spanish department.
“The plot is more or less stan
dard,” Dr. Wright continues,' “A
farmer’s daughter is wooed by
several young men, among them
the hero and the villain.”
The film which runs an hour
will have no English subtitles. \
Dr. Wright stressed the point
that the film will be free. Stu
dents are asked to contribute 10
or 15 cents to help - cover ex
penses, however.
