WSSF Campus Drive Starts Today;
Money to Help Education Abroad
Some 2000 refugees are enrolled in European univer
sities, while the U.N. International Refugee Organization
seeks homes for them. At the left, refugees use a base
ment library in a bombed-out building. At the right, a
student cooks in his tiny bedroom-study-living room.
Oregon’s part in helping such
students as shown above is brought
closer home this week during the
official World Student Fund drive,
which starts today.
Based on the principles of more
fortunate students assisting their
needy contemporaries, WSSF, a
part of World Student Relief, is
the American agency designed pri
marily for the betterment of uni
versity education abroad.
Donations from students and
faculty in the United States are
channelled through World Student
Relief headquarters in Geneva,
Switzerland. A noteworthy factor
in WSR is the low cost.of admin
istration, with many donating their
services or doing double duty in
some other capacity as well ais rep
resenting WSR or WSSF.
Distribution of aid is determined
by NEED alone. Contributions
come from 18 nations throughout
the world and go to students in
Europe, Southeast Asia, and China.
Five main fields of help are aid in
food, providing shelter, prividing
medical care, books and equipment,
and aid through study grants.
Total drive goal for the United
States this year is $600,000.
Following is a calendar of social
events for spring term as released
by the office of student affairs.

First Chinaware in U.5.
Made by Lenox, Inc.
Once American potters looked to
Europe for guidance in the making
of fine chinaware. Now, principally
through the example and work of
Lenox Inc. of New Jersey, the
trend is being reversed. Their ware
is handled exclusively in Eugene
by Hoffman’s Jewelry Company.
The oldest famous name in the
manufacture of fine Chinaware in
the United States, Lenox was the
first American company to break
away from the European monopoly
of the china ware market in Amer
Under the leadership of the com
pany's founder, Walter Lenox, the
making of fine chinaware began
in 1884. But not until President
Woodrow Wilson placed an order
for chinaware to be used in the
White House did Lenox firmly es
tablish itself as one of the fore
most producers of fine chinaware.
During the San Francisco earth
quake of 1906, Lenox ware demon
strated its durability by surviving
the fire and quake. Then the ac
ceptance by Congress of American
produced dinnerware for the White
House, established Lenox china as
among the best in the world. Con
gress formerly had used only
Lenox further broke away from
the European tradition of selling
china by sets, when it began plac
ing emphasis on buying place set
tings of five pieces or of buying
individual pieces. The company’s
idea was that only governments
and the wealthy could afford to
buy fine chinaware by the set.
Lenox also devised the system
by which prospective brides or
housewives can select their china
ware pattern and register it by
number at a retail store. Friends
then may order as many pieces
as they desire as wedding or birth
By breaking away completely
from the European style in design,
Lenox was further able to gain a
bigger share of the American mar
ket. One of the company’s design
ers, introduced a new style in china
that was generally called modern.
It was clean and simple of line in
contrast to the elaborate and often
rococo style that had been popular
in Europe for years.
This modern style, particularly
the severe, unencumbered motifs
against a white background, soon
attracted attention and by the late
1930's, the Lenox trademark was
on perhaps one of every four pieces
of chinaware purchased by Amer
Since the war, when it became
more difficult to get European
ware, Lenox has expanded its en
tire line. Lenox, although retaining
the old principle of the potter’s
wheel, has adapted its Trenton
plant to American productions
methods, enabaling it to produce
several times as many pieces as
