    Fifty-First Year of Publication and Sendee to the University
Individual house pictures for the
1950 Oregana will be taken begin
ning Monday, announced Ruth
Landry, Oregana Associate Edi
tor in charge of living organiza
Miss Landry explained that Ken
nel-Ellis studios again have the
Oregana contract for pictures, and
that the pictures will be taken at
that firm’s downtown studios.
Schedule for the pictures is now
being finished by Miss Landry.
Alpha Tau Omega fraternity is
scheduled for Monday, Sigma Al
pha Epsilon for Tuesday, and Phi
Delta Theta Wednesday. Cards for
individual appointments will be
left at the houses in advance of
the scheduled date for pictures.
Men are requested not to wear
bow ties. Preferred are white
shirts, four-in-hands, and dark suit
jackts if possible. Any difficulties
which arise should be referred to
the Oregana rather than to Kennel
Ellis studios.
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.
A book dealing with attitudes
toward sex instruction at the jun
ion high level is now being written
by Beck, and will be published by
the Harcourt-Brace firm.
He will return to Eugene late in
October for a short visit, but plans
to continue his research later in
New York.

Placement Office
Offers Positions
“If you want a job, get regis

the graduate placement service,
said Tuesday.
A few positions are unfilled at
present, but the office cannot rec
ommend anyone without complete
credentials from the applicants.
Students desiring full-time em
ployment are urged to come to the
placement office in Emerald hall

Unfilled positions are largely in
the selling field, with some ac
counting positions open. There are
openings in other fields, however.
Usually only full-time employ
ment is handled through the grad
uate placement office, with stu
dents desiring part-time work go
ing to the student employment of
fice. In some cases where part
time jobs will lead to full-time
employment, the graduate office
will place people, Onthank assured.

Foreign Student Program Planned;
Spotlight on Orientation Seminars
The University program for for
eign students got under way this
week with 27 students from coun
tries all over the world now regis
tered and more expected, James
D. Kline, foreign student advisor,
said yesterday.
A special orientation seminar,
held every Monday, Wednesday,
and Friday, and conducted by
Kline is being held for the students
and aims at acquainting them with
American life. The students this
week are hearing general familiar
ization lectures.
Starting Monday they will hear
a series of lectures dealing with
geographical, economic, political
and other aspects of the United
States and the North American
First of the series is by S. N.
Dicken, head of the Geology and
Geography Department, who on
Monday and Wednesday will dis
cuss geographical aspects of North
America. Friday the students will
hold an open discussion of points
advanced by Dicken.
Fourteen are being sponsored by
living groups on the campus and
another one by a private Eugene
family. Most are here under a pro
gram set up by the Institute of
International Education with head
quarters in New York City.
The program starts in the stu
dent’s home country with an elab
orate screening process designed
to select outstanding applicants.
Transportation to the United
States is often provided by the U.
S. Army. The students spend a
year in American colleges which
present special familiarization
me university ot uregon pro
gram was arranged by the Inter
national Affairs Committee, of
which Gordon Wright, associate
professor of history, is chairman,
and by Kline. The latter is assist
ant registrar and a member of the
National Association of Foreign
Student Advisors.
Kline believes the program has
far-reaching value in the field of
international relations. He pointed
out the screening process selects
only the outstanding students who,
upon their return to their home
country, make potential leaders
and high government officials. If
properly influenced by American
ways of life, Kline believes they
will return with good impressions
of the United States.
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.
Sciology will be studied by Mr.
James, who received his B. A.
degree from Wayne University in
[ 1948 and his M. A. degree from
the same school in 1949.
Walter Meade finished his Bach

Women's 'Lid' Sale

A limited supply of women’s root

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.
