    B.A. School
Names Five
To Faculty
By WALLACE BERMNG
The school of business adminis
tration has made five appoint
ments this fall. Of the two full
time instructors, one is a sailor and
tue other a would-be-mariner who
never quite got to sea.
Don R. Marshall, new assistant
instructor in business law, carried
bis profession to sea with him. As
a lieutenant in the navy, Marshall
acted as legal counsel at east and
west coast bases and in the Pacific.
At the termination of the war
went to Tokyo as defense coun
sel in court martial proceedings
there.
Native of Oregon
Marshall is a native of Oregon,
having received his B.S. from the
school in 1939, and a degree as doc
tor of jurisprudence in 1940. He
went on to Columbia university,
earning his M.L. in 1941.
Before entering the navy he
worked for the department of jus
tice and later as deputy attorney
in Portland. Up to the time of his
appointment here, Marshall was
handling the legal side for the of
fice of army engineers in Oregon.
Teaches Accounting
William Pyle, new instructor in
accounting, comes to the campus
from Indiana by way of Cottage
Grove high school, where he taught
accounting three years.
Pyle’s decision to live in Oregon
is the indirect result of a frustrat
ed ambition to ship out for China
when a sophomore at Indiana State.
Berths Scarce
Setting out for the West in the
summer of 1934, he found the coast
depression-ridden and torn with
bitter strikes. Berths were not to
be easily had.
Finally hearing of an opening on
a ship just docking in Portland, he
hurried to sign up. Pyle declined
with thanks, however, when he
found the berth was open because
one murky night half-way back
from the islands, a sailor had been
playfully" tossed overboard after a
heated discussion of union organi
zation.
Sees Midwest
Returning home by way of
Alaska, Pyle managed to acquire
a speaking acquaintance with all
major cities of the Midwest in the
next few years. Although he earned
a teacher’s certificate along with
his degree in 1937, it was only to
satisfy the requirements. He was
determined “never to be a school
teacher,” he said.
Seven years later, while school
principal in West Baden, Indiana,
William Pyle was accepted for the
navy. Then as soon as he had com
pleted all arrangements to go, the
order came through that his pre
Pearl Harbor family exempted him
from service.
Time for Break
Deciding that this was the logi
cal time to make a break, he head
ed for Oregon, satisfying a long
standing desire to live in the Wil
lamette valley.
Elizabeth A. Archibald, part
time instructor in typing, is from
North Dakota. She atteended Ste
phens college in Missouri, becoming
president of Kappa Phi Delta, jour
nalism honorary, in the process.
Earns Honors
Majoring in business adminis
tration at Oregon, she was a mem
ber of Beta Gamma Sigma and
earned Phi Beta Kappa when she
was graduated in June of 1944.
Prom here she went to Radcliffe
college in Cambridge, Mass., for
graduate w’ork in journalism.
Thomas M. Holt, part time in
structor in accounting, is from -
Rickreall, Ore. He received his B.A.
from Willamette university and
came to this campus for graduate
work. j
Graduate Assistant
He has returned 'after several
years in the army to complete hi3
work as a graduate assistant.
Robert C. Loomis, a practicing
CPA in Eugene, is also instructing
accounting here. Receiving a B.B.A,
here in 1933, he went on to Port
land to take extension courses in
CPA work.
Enters Army
At the time he entered the armj’
in 1942 he was senior auditor t©
the Oregon secretary of state.
