committee, headed by Art John

Outstanding Education School
Planned by Newly Elected Dean
Dr. Paul Jacobson, dean elect of
the school of education, still busy
getting settled and acquainted, em
phasized yesterday that he intends
to build a nationally known school
of education here in the Northwest.
Dr. Jacobson’s wife and 15-year
old daughter will arrive here July
1, the date he will start his admin
istration. At present the family is
in Davenport, Iowa, where he has
been superintenden tof schools since
Prior to that time he did other
administrative work, taught at
Syracuse university, and at Colum
bia university. From 1936 to 1944 he
was with the school of education at
the University of Chicago, holding
the principalship of its University
high school.
Famous Oregon rain didn’t sur
prise or impede Dr. Jacobson, but
the telephone strike and the housing
shortage provided a momentary ,
problem. He luckily got quarters
with E. G. Daniel, professor of busi
ness administration, and said he
was delighted to find "a splendid
house that just fits our needs.”
“The campus is beautiful,” he
commented. “The students look like
those at the University of Chicago,
though fewer in number. I think my
daughter will go wild over beauti
ful Oregon.” ,|
