election for the 1948 scholarships,
Dr. Paul Means, state secretary
for Rhodes scholarships said
A candidate to be eligible must
be a male citizen of the United
States, unmarried, between 19 and
25 years old, and have junior
Exceptions to the rules occur
under the war service scholarships
which will accept candidates with
sophomore standing, married stu
dents, and anyone between 19 and
80 years old.
32 Formerly Given
Before the war 32 scholarships
were given in the United States
to be tenable at Oxford university.
Since these scholarships were dis
continued during the war ad
ditional scholarships are being
given until the number equals the
number that should have been
awarded during the war years. For
1948, a total of 48 scholarships
will be given to students from
eight districts throughout the Uni
ed States.
The Rhodes scholarships, estab
lished in 1899 by the will of Cecil
Rhodes, prominent Union of South
Africa statesman, have been given
in the United States and British
possessions since 1902 Before the
war, they were given in Germany
also, but as yet have not been rein
Consider Four-Qualities
Rhodes mentioned four groups
of qualities that should be con
sidered concerning the applica
tions. Most important of these
were literary and scholastic ability
and attainments, and qualities of
manhood, truth, courage, devotion
to duty, sympathy, kindliness, un
selfishness, and fellowship. Also
considered are exhibition of moral
force of character and of instincts
to lead and take an interest in his
schoolmates and physical vigor, as
shown by interest in outdoor
sports or in other ways.
An interested candidate may get
an application from either Dr.
Means in Friendly hall or from
Dr. Morris in Commerce. From ap
plications considered by the in
ternational affairs and scholar
ship, five or six candidates will
be chosen from this University to
be brought before the state com
mittee when it meets some time in
Committee Picks
The state committee will pick
out three candidates to be con
sidered by the district, committee
and the district committee will de
cide on the six final Rhodes schol
ars from nominees in the district.
Included in the northwest district
will be applicants from Oregon,
Washington, Idaho, Montana,Wyo
ming, and North Dakota.
The 48 scholars chosen in De
cember will matriculate at Oxford
beginning next September. Each
year the winners will receive ap
proximately §2000 to cover tui
tion and other living costs. Ap
pointments are made for a two
year period, but a third year will
be awarded if necessary and satis
factory to the college and to the
Rhodes trustees.
No restriction is placed on the
scholar’s choice of study and a
candidate applying for a scholar
ship may be taking any course in
his university.

victories Monday night in Gerlin
Setting the pace, Rebec’s twins,
Jan and Jean Neeley, led their team
to a 30-21 win over Chi Omega.
Leading scorer for the losers was
Dencie Howard with seven.

around performance with good
team set-ups, and spikes. Esther
Olson was high point, with Pat Ar
nold doing fine work on set-ups to
her front line crew of Thelma Cha
ney, Barbara Richter, Shirlee
Smouse, and Coralee Thomson.

Koch Powers
But late in the third stanza a
combination of air and ground
attack paid off in points. Wash
ington punted to the Oregon 43,
and Jim Newquist picked up two
yards through the line. Kock grab
bed a Van Brocklin pass for seven
yards, and then drove to a first
down through the line. George
Bell, who turned in an outstanding
performance as a power runner,
slashed his way 13 yards to the
Washington 33.
Van Brocklin, who found the
wet ball little trouble, cut loose
with a 28-yard heave to Leicht,
who gathered the pigskin in on the
five yard line. On the next play
Leicht took the ball over right
guard for the only touchdown of
the day that counted. The attempt
for extra point by Leicht was
Field Goal Wide
Earlier in the third period a
scoring attempt was set up after
the Ducks drove from the 50 to
the Washington 15, only to be
stopped. As a last resort Leicht
attempted a field goal, but the
ball sailed wide of the uprights.
The final period was give-and
take. An Oregon push was killed
on the Washington 12 by a fumble.
The Huskies cut loose with their
most successful attack of the day,
as tl^ey got to the Oregon 29 in
three plays before committing the
costly penalties. After that the
Duck crew played safe ball, and
held tight till the game’s end'.

New Slant on Poet
A new slant on Henry Wads
worth Longfello was presented
by Carl L Johnson, assistant pro
fessor of romance languages, in
an article published in the Sep
tember issue of the New England
Titled “Longfellow’s Beginnings
in Foreign Languages,” the essay
proves that it was not Longfel
low’s first teacher, but his uncle,
Henry Wadsworth, that influenced
the poet’s interest in languages.
Mr. Johnson became interested
in Longfellow while writing a
thesis on “Longfellow as a Pro
fessor of French.” At this time he
unearthed the heretofore lost copy
of Longfellow’s first French gram
mar book. It had been misplaced
for a century in the Harvard li
Johnson received his Ph.D. at
Harvard. Before coming to Ore
gon he taught at West Virginia
university, Harvard, and Univer
sity of Iowa.
