Beck Completes New Sex Film Dr. Lester F. Beck, on leave of absence from the University’s psy chology department, is continuing his work on educational films in New York. Beck just finished “Human Be ginning,” a 16 millimeter colored film, with six-year-old school child ren as subjects. The film will be used to teach sex education to grade school children. “Human Beginning” is believed by many to be better than the film “Human Growth,” which he produced last year for junior high students.

He will return to Eugene late in October for a short visit, but plans to continue his research later in New York.

Chlorination Due For Polluted Race Yesterday’s announcement by the University Health Service designating the millrace as "practically an open sewer” inspired comment from Millrace Association President Dr. M. V. Walker. “The ultimate hope of the Millrace Association,” explained 1 )r. W alker, "is that the two miles of waterway can eventually be chlorinated at the point at which the race is diverted from the Willamette River.” Such a chlorination process would cost about $2000 per year, Four Grants To Further Ph.D. Work Four $1500 fellowships financed in part by the Carnegie Corpora tion of New York have been award ed to outstanding graduate stu dents for a new Fh.D. program the University is starting this term. This program will emphasize broader social science training and will provide systematic prepara tion for college teaching careers, both by instruction and by teach ing experience. Recipients of the fellowships are Arthur DeWitt Barre, Olympia, Washington; Herbert D. Carlin, Klamath Falls; Robert James, De troit, Michigan; and Walter J. Meade, Alameda, California. Barre received his B. A. degree from Whitman college in 1947, and his M. A. frpm Oregon in 1949. Last year he attended the Univer sity of Copenhagen, Denmark. Political science will be his field of study. Carlin obtained his B. S. from Oregon in 1940 and his Master from the University in 1947. His tory will be his field of study.

Another shipment of the lemon-and-green hats is expect ed, but the receiving date is indefi nite. Price of the lids is $1.50. The rally board is in charge of sales. asserted ur. waiKer. "inis would certainly be much cheaper than building and chlorinating a pool,” he stated. “Here we have two miles of swimming hole — I certainly think some University or local group should do something toward purifying the water.” Dr. Walker pointed out that there are sufficient funds remaining in the Millrace Association treasury to finance such a program. Approx imately $40,000 was collected for restoration of the millrace, only eleven or twelve thousand of which was actually used. The $2000-a-year estimate was made by engineers hired by the Millrace Association. Red Cross Issues Campus Appeal For Blood Donors An appeal to students for dona tions of blood has been made by the campus Red Cross. Here is the story behind the request: Careful budgeting of GI allot ments enabled a student veteran to pay hospital bills when his wife went to the hospital to give birth to a healthy baby girl. But compli cations made it necessary for his wife to return to the hospital for several transfusions, for which no provision could be made. Thirty pints of blood, requiring 30 donors, are needed to replace the blood in the blood bank used for the transfusions. This is the goal of the campus Red Cross. Donors, who must be over 21 and weigh over 120 pounds, may see Dr. Furrer, room 730 Miner building be tween 2 and 4:30 in the afternoon. They should specify that the blood be credited to this particular case. All blood types are acceptable.
