The school of business adminis

mind you, but special representa

more than the usual baggage. More
specifically, two tons of the most
modern accounting equipment. This

Monday, the first day of the course,
saw seven classes, a high student
interest and a total of 267 present

These classes are brought to the
University through special ar
rangement with Dean V. P. Morris,
of the school of business adminis
tration and will be held in 206 Com
merce from 8 to 3 through Friday
of this week.
A special class on bank applica
tions will be given Saturday morn
ing. A wide range of valuable sub
jects is offered, including: accounts
receivable and payable, window
posting, labor distribution, and cost!
and payroll records.
Starting from Ohio, Mr. Hughes
has worked west across the coun
try and has thus far visited Ne
braska, Utah and Washington col
leges before his arrival to Oregon.
He plans to go on to California af
ter his stay here. His assigned area
is half of the United States, one of
the four divisions covered by rep
resentatives of his company. He
expressed his hopes that the cours
es prove successful enough to war
rant their permanent establishment
on an annual basis.
Student comment seems to indi
cate that this is a valuable sup
plement to their regular courses
and brings them to more fully real
ize some of the hitherto unknown
possibilities and applications of ac
counting. From this interest shown,
indications are that Mr. Hughes’
wish shall be fulfilled.
