    Radio Field to Open to More Women,
Vere Kneeland Tells Matrix Crowd

J-^e is unknown, but one thing that
we do known is that women will
be there to take their part,” Vere
Kneeland, Portland radio woman
who spoke at the annual Matrix
Table banquet last Friday night,
told her audience.
“Opportunities for women in
this field have increased a great
deal since I first went into radio
work 16 years ago,” she continued,
“and it is my belief that they will
continue to increase even more in
the next few years.”
Specifically some of the depart
ments which are open to women
in varying degrees are the continu
ity work or script writing, as it is
commonly called, public relations,
production work, which includes
mechanical work and the traffic
department, and the business de
Continuity work offers perhaps
the best opportunity for women.
Training is now being given in col
leges in a cooperative program be
tween journalism and radio depart
ments to prepare graduates for
radio work. In connection with
this system, Mrs. Kneeland ex
plained, Portland radio stations
have formulated a plan of pre
senting a radio scholarship each
year to outstanding students in
this field at the University.

great deal of her time, she helped
at the University hospital as a
dietitian’s aide. She also partici
pates in the drama group of the
Iowa City Woman’s club and the
choral speaking section of the
poetry division. Among her more
enjoyable activities, Mrs. Newburn
classifies the entertainment of
freshman and transfer students in
the orientation program sponsored
by the University for new stu
dents. She also enjoys gardening.
When asked what she thought-of
the prospects of being the first
lady of the University of Oregon,
she said, “Naturally, we are look
ing forward to our new home. Our
friends who know Oregon tell us
that the people are friendly, hos
pitable, and neighborly. We expect
soon to be classified among the
many who look upon the Pacific
Northwest as the finest place in
the world to work, to live, and to
rear one’s family.”
Jackie, more formally known as
Jacqueline, is almost 16 years old

cheerleading and the girls’ ath

studies, keep her pretty busy. She
is one of the better swimmers in
her class, and her tentative voca

Faculty and students alike have
shared the University of Iowa’s
regret at losing Dean Newburn.
Ferhaps his greatest achievement
during his three years as dean was
the working out of a new curricu
lum which is based on the student
needs rather than on tradition.
This curriculum, which was the
product of two years’ study and
deliberation by practically all the
liberal arts faculty has attracted
the attention of educators through
out the country. Many have come
to Iowa City to study the plan in
The new plan establishes defi
nite requirements for all, but gives
the student more freedom and help
in building a curriculum to meet
his individual needs. One of the
interesting parts of the new cur
riculum is a communication skills
division for freshmen which re
places courses in freshman Eng
lish and speech, and insures that a
student will attain a certain degree
of proficiency in reading, writing,
and speaking. If he can demon
strate that proficiency when he
conies, he is excused from the
course. Otherwise, he takes it until
he can met the required standards.
Taught in Illinois
Dean Newburn earned his
master of arts degree from the
State University of Iowa in 1931
and a Ph.D. in 1933. He taught
school in Illinois, where he coached
football, basketball, and track, and
served as high school principal and
superintendent of schools for sev
eral years.
Beginning as a part-time prin
cipal of Iowa City University high
school, he soon became assistant
professor of education, then associ
ate professor and director of Uni
versity high school. Since 1941, he
has been professor and dean of the
college of liberal arts. In 1938, he
visited schools in Scotland and
England under auspices of the
Carnegie corporation.
Dean Newburn has been active
in the North Central Association
of Colleges and Secondary Schools,
where he is a member of the execu
tive committee chairman of
that organization’s commission on
research and service. Many of his
articles on educational problems
have been published in professional
magazines. He has traveled exten
sively for the University.
Students Regret Transfer
As for what the students think,
the following- is an excerpt from a
letter recently written to Dean
Newburn by the University wom
en's association, representing- each j
woman on the Iowa campus: “We j
want you to know that we feel
your leaving this university will be
a great loss to Iowa as a school
and to us individually for your
guidance as dean of the college of
liberal arts affects each of us so
directly. We are sincerely sorry
you are leaving. The University of
Oregon can be proud that you ac
cepted the position as president of
th.at university, and may we again
wish for your a most happy ancl
successful future.”
And as for what President-elect
Newburn thinks, here is a message
which he sends today through the
Iowan to the Daily Emerald:
"Recently I read an article in
the “Adelphian" written by a stu
dent at the University of Oregon.
Since that time I have been more
eager than ever to step again upon
the campus which she describes so
interestingly, and to become a part
of the life of the University which
she so obviously admires and re
spects. Among our greatest plea
sures will be the opportunity to
associate with the many students
and faculty members who must
share her feelings toward the Uni
versity of Oregon.”
