University ot Oregon, Eugtne
November (Special) Three high
schools In Malheur county those
at Nyssa, Ontario and Vale have
courses of study ot such high grade
ami taught' with such efficiency that
they are accredited by tho Univer
sity of Oregon. All these schools
are well known here, not only thru
the students bu thru the well-trained
teaching staff. Harl It. Douglas,
formerly superintendent of schools
at Ontario, Is now professor ot edu
cation at the University,
To be admitted to the freshman
class of tho University ot Oregon a
etudont must have completed a four
year high school coure or its equiv
alent, requiring not less than 15
units ot work. The term "unit"
means the equivalent ot five recita
tions per week of not less than 40
minutes each; in one branch of
study, for a school year of not lens
than 36 weeks. Considering these
high requirements It I a distinct
honor for a high school to be on
the Unlvorslty accredited list.
Although there are more than
two hundred high schools In the
state, only 177 are accredited by
the University.
The University of Oregon makes
the following specific requirements;
Three units of English, one unit
each ot algebra, plane geometry,
history and science, two Halts- ot
one foreign language, an additional
unit of any of these and five units
In elected subjects. But It la re
commended that la elcttvM signi
