Variety of Articles
In Lost and Found
What's the easiest subject in
school ? It may not be a true test,
but the University lost and found
department, located in the physi
cal plant, has more English texts
than any other variety.
As a matter of fact, students
seem to be able to get along with
out books easier than any of the
other necessities of college life.
There are lots of pens, scarfs,
glasses, bracelets, etc. but stu
dents are losing books on a ratio
of about two to one.
The lost and found department
would like to get rid of the arti
cles they have on hand, but we’ll
wager that one book will stay
there for some time, if not for
ever. Someone has lost st copy of
John Morgan’s “How to Keep a
Sound Mind.”

UN Assembly Story
(Ed. Note—Lois McConkey Putnam, Oregon graduate
and Pacific Northwest delegate to the United Nations as
sembly, will wire regular reports from New York. This is an
exclusive Emerald feature.)
NEW YORK, Oct. 22 (Special)—Olan Paus-Grunt,
United Nations section chairman of the educational service,
said in an interview with Troy Strong (delegate from the
College of Puget Sound) and I that UNESCO was very much
interested in the Pacific Northwest College Congress on a
national basis.
Today the resolutions formed at the PNCC meeting at
Reed college last spring were presented to the American dele
gation at the Pennsylvania hotel. Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt,
member of UNESCO, and Helen Gahagan Douglas, Cali
fornia congresswoman, were especially interested in this evi
dence of serious thought and interest in the United Nations.
We were introduced tonight at a meeting of delegates
to the United Nations Assembly, and attended a broadcast of

Broadway Production of "Rags-to-Riches" Tale
Features British Playwright's Biting Humor
Tonight at S, when the final prop has been put in place, and

campus will see a different country and period portrayed by the
flourish of George Bernard Shaw's pen and the University
Theater Guild.

associate prolessor of speech and
dramatic arts.
Playgoers' hearts rang with
laughter as “Pygmalion” soared to

“Pygmalion” is concerned with
the antics and problems of a con
firmed bachelor as he tries to
transform a ragmuffin flower girl
into a gracious and charming lady
of class and distinction. Shaw’s vit

the lines and express his own ideas.,

Plans for Bigger, Better UO Graduate School
Laid Out by Dr. Howard Taylor, Acting Dean
School to Open New
Research Possibilities
Plans for a bigger and better Ore
gon graduate school were outlined
yesterday by Dr. Howard Taylor, re
cently appointed acting dean of the
graduate school.
“There isn’t any reason,” Dr. Tay
lor emphasized, “why the Univer
sity shouldn’t have candidates for
Ph. D. degrees as well as other grad

upper level standing among Ameri

Dr. Taylor, emphasizing the fact
that modern educational tendencies
are centered on the Ph. D. level, said
that Oregon was not monopolizing
the research and natural possibili
ties prevalent through the state.
“The recognition by the state
board that Oregon graduate schools
can be best developed by the institu
tions themselves,” Dr. Taylor said,
“will enable the University to en
courage the full capacity of the stu
dents and faculty in active research.
“We live right here on the rim of
the Pacific basin,” Dr. Taylor con
tinued, “and therefore regional
studies of trade and the northwest

Plans for the new science build
ing to be erected on Kincaid street
will include an enormous reservoir
of factual information open to the
graduate students, said Dr. Taylor.
“We may not be able to have the
gigantic equipment prevalent in j
California universities, but we will
be able to capitalize upon our na
tural resources,” he added.
In this resptect the graduate
school plans to maintain working
contacts with different laboratories
throughout the country and in other
nations. They also plan the organi
zation of scientific research projects
to study nationally known scientific
