In Third Year
The Journal Club of the Foreign
Language Department was orga
nized three years ago for the pur
pose of “raising the intellectual
temperature on the campus a de
gree or two,’’ in the words of its
founder, Chandler B. Beall, profes
sor of romance languages.
It is designed to give faculty, in
terested students, and outside peo
ple opportunity to bring each other
up to date in the fields of scholar
ship and creative work—“a project
in mutual education,” explained
In its first year on the campus, a
few surveys were conducted on dif
ferent periods, movements, auth
ors, and fields of scholarship.
Last year the club sponsored a
series of lectures and demonstra
tions devoted to the study of Ba
roque style in French and Spanish
literature, the arts, and music.
This year’s series of meetings is
to be devoted to the artistic styles
and vocabularies of the Twientieth
Century, in order to make students
more aware of the age in which
they are living.
Although the Journal Club origi
nated in the foreign language de
partment, it is campus-wide in
'Challenge of Teaching'
Interests Busy Professor
By JACKIE PIUTZEN
Would she enter it or would she
teach it ?
It was always business, Miss Jes
sie Smith, attractive assistant pro
fessor of business administration,
said, but whether to teach or to en
ter the field was another problem.
Miss Smith came to the Univer
sity as an instructor in 1942, from
the office of the chancellor of Ore
gon’s state system of higher educa
tion. Gaining her master’s degree
in 1946, she became an assistant
professor, and began work for her
As a major factor in her choice of
education, Miss Smith points out an
interest in the development of the
“I admire the inquiring mind of
the student, and believe in the en
couragement of the student’s abili
Evidence of this attitude is the
amount of individual counseling
which is included in her daily ac
tivities, and her advisory work in
Phi Chi Theta, women’s business
On leave of absence, Miss Smith
attended Columbia University last
year, working toward a doctorate
degree in business education.
A study of New York secondary
schools revealed many weaknesses
in the preparation of high school
students for later work or study in
business, she explained.
‘‘These weaknesses may be elimi
nated largely through better prep
aration of business teachers in sec
ondary schools—the ultimate goal
in the field of business education.”
Toward this objective, Miss
Smith pointed out the co-operation
of the University schools of busi
ness and education to promote an
enriched program of teacher train
ing in business.
‘‘The improvement of teacher
training techniques is always a
challenge to education." she added.
But the challenge of teaching is
not new to Miss Smith, who began
tutoring other students before she
entered high school.
For Theater Board
The University Theater execu
tive board will meet Thursday at
4 p.m. in the Theater Green Room.
Nominations for the new execu
tive board will be made.
Four silent films dealing with
surrealism and experimentalism,
sponsored by the Foreign Movie
Club and the Journal Club, will bo
presented at 3:30 p.m., Thursday,
in the Mayflower Theater.
R. L. Picard, assistant profes
sor of romance languages, and
president of the Foreign Movie
Club, will introduce the hour and
a half program. The pictures will
not begin until approximately 4
The films arc “Rhythmus" by
Hans Richter; “Ballet Mecanique,”
a cubist film by Fernand Leger;
“Symphonie Diagonale” by Viking
Eggeling; and “Entr’acte” by Reno
Clair and Francis Picabia.
“Symphonie Diagonale” is an ex
periment made in an attempt to
discover the basic principles of the
organization of time intervals in
the film medium.
