The 20th century has brought no more respite from wars than Euripides knew when he created “The Trojan Women” in 415 B. C. Iowa Loss, Oregon Gain Press Says of President By JOAN OVERHOLSER Daily Iowan Staff Writer You are going to like your new president. The Daily Iowan would like to send that report to readers of the Daily Emerald. Your new president—our dean of liberal arts—is a tall, friendly man with shoulders like a football player. As a matter of fact, he played football and basketball for Western Illinois Teacher’s college. His chief athletic interest at present is walk ing the floor with his son Michael, born in late December. Before Michael, he was an en thusiastic gardener and fisherman. About his accomplishments in both those lines he is modest. Especially so with fishing. “I understand folks in Oregon really know how to go at it," he said. "I’m just an amateur, so I’ll keep quiet about fishing when I get out there, and maybe they’ll teach me." Good Speaker Dean Newburn is an effective public speaker of the facts-rather than-flowers type. He likes people, confesses he may even spend too much time on general conversa tion. He and Mrs. Newburn enjoy plays and music. He is a member of Kiwanis and the SUI faculty club, and has served as Kiwanis program chairman. He is a good news source when he has a story to give out, because he lays it on the line simply and logically and answers questions frankly and with a jovial, reserved humor. When you interview him about himself, though, he keeps veering to the subject of his family. The family, in addition to Mrs. Newburn, are Jackie, Bob and lit tle Mike. Mike (born December 21, 1044* is the most outspoken of the lot. He expresses himself firmly and unmistakeaWy on subjects of cur rent importance to him. That is why the dean gets his exercise walking the floor. ^ Wife Drama Enthusiast Pretty Mrs. Newburn has been active in University club work, and served for one year as its presi dent.
