Committee Votes'?Graduate School

PORTLAND, Oct. 21— (AP)— A
committee of the state board of
higher education voted today to es
tablish separate graduate schools
at the University of Oregon and

The committee also recommend

be abolished.
Both recommendations will go be
fore the board tomorrow.
Under the plan the general re

and its funds transferred to the
graduate schools. At present there
is a single graduate division.
The plan envisions a graduate
dean on each campus. Names sug

Dr. Olaf Larsell, who was gradu
ate division dean until his recent
resignation, would remain as chair
man of the graduate council at the
medical school, where he is head of
the anatomy department.

were set up originally to report di
rectly to the state chancellor. When
each institution gained a president,
their functions largely ceased to

Pygmalion Players Agree
That Dialogue Sparkles
Bill Wood, Don Moss Tell Stage Background;
New York Heaven for Visiting Drama Majors
“Pygmalion” is sparkling with witty dialogue, agree Bill
Wood and Don Moss, male leads in the George Bernard Shaw
play, to be presented by the Guild Hall players Friday, Oct. 25.
Wood is a junior in drama and comes from Portland. His
blond hair accents his blue eyes, his 5 feet 8 inch height, and his
outstanding personality. During the summer he spent his vaca
tion in New York, which to a drama , . .
major is heaven and even more so i
when you are able to see your favor
ite plays on the stage. This was not
Wood’s first visit to New York.
During his three years in the navy
Tie spent 16 months in the metropo
lis of stage wonders.
Asking Wood more about his
summer he leaned forward to ex
plain with pride that he had been
offered the job of casting director
with Richard Aldrich and Gertrude
Lawrence while working in Dennis,
Massachusetts, in the summer play
ers group but, thinking longingly
of Oregon, he decided to return and
continue his studies. Wood has high
hopes for a reoffer of this job for
next summer.
He has been active on the campus
in different drama groups. Recent
plays he has been in are “My Sister
Eileen” and “Arsenic and Old Lace.”
His show work goes back to his
navy career when he did show work
with the Red Cross. He is hoping for
more plays in the future.
Don Moss, senior in psychology,
will graduate in March. He is hap
piest, he confides, when he is slap
ping on grease paint or mixing a
ginger bread cake. (Eds. note: This
is not for publication.) Moss took
time out this summer to mingle
with stage people in Greenwich Vil
lage and see his favorite stage
plays, one of which was “Annie Get
Your Gun.” On his return trip he
visited the drama department of
Northwestern and the University of
During four years of army life
Ex.-Sgt. Moss saw much of Europe
and in spite of the war managed to
keep fairly close to the stage
through the Army special services.
After graduation from Oregon
Moss is planning on taking a job
with the state department and re
turn to Europe in the spring. “Pyg
malion” is full of George Bernard
Shaw's own ideals and expressive
thoughts and I know we will both
enjoy our parts,” Moss said.
Quiz Forum Planned
An open forum on questions pre
sented at previous meetings will be
held at the Newman club meeting
at the YMCA tonight. Father Al
, bert Rodakowski will preside at the
discussion. ... %
