Two- Year College Course Made Nec
essary to Enter Iiaw School and
7 5 Hours' Work Fixed as
Minimum for Degree.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON", Eugene.
June 19. (Special.) During the last
month the faculty has considered
seven separate proposals for strength
ening the scholastic standing of the
university, of which five were adopted
and the remaining two left for consid
eration in the Fall.
The first of these measures to be
adopted was a modified honor system.
Starting next Fall, upper classmen
may be designated by their major pro
fessor as "honor students" in one or
more subjects. A student so listed
will be expected to do extra research
work aside from class assignments. No
grades are to be given honor students
in the subjects where they will have
honor standing until they become ready
to receive a degree. Then they will
take an examination lasting at least
three hours before a faculty committee.
Danrea Are limited.
Numerous dances were next hit at
by the faculty on the ground that they
were interfering with time needed for
study. The faculty adopted a resolu
tion prohibiting a fraternity from giv
ing more than two dances during the
year.' Rules also were made to limit
each class to one annual party on uni
versity property and to restrict student
activities during the week to the hours
from 4 to 6 o'clock.
When it became necessary last week
to establish the requirements for a
degree from the school of law the fac
ulty fixed 75 hours of law work as the
minimum. There is not an institution
in the country demanding more work
than the standard set for Oregon. Ac
cording to the regulations as adopted
admission to the law school can only
be obtained after two years of prelim
inary college training, making the
course a five-year one.
The maximum amount of work that
can be carried by architectural stu
dents was raised from 16 to 17 semester
hours and freshmen are to be required
to have before admission to the school
of architecture 10 units of specific work
among the 15 necessary for admission
to the university, and permission was
granted to schedule classes on Satur
Lit Students Weeded, Out.
As a result of the general tightening
ef requirements the lax students are
being weeded out and the faculty has
found it possible to relax on the arbi
trary punishment for missing classes.
The cumulative feature of the cut rule
has been repealed.
Two other resolutions which give as
their purpose the raising of scholastic
standing have been laid over till the
first meeting in the Fall. One is a
proposal by Dr. Barnett to do away
with intercollegiate athletics, the other
proposes to discount low grades in fig
uring graduation credits. The back
ers of the plan to weigh grades would
discount mere passing marks from 20
to 40 per cent. Thus a student getting
a P pass, in a five-hour course, would
only receive three or four credits in
place of the five granted to a medium
Starting next September no freshmen
will be admitted to the university un
less they have the full 15 entrance
credits. Up to now it has been possi
ble to be admitted with 13 credits and to
make. up the other two during the
freshman and sophomore years.

that. laid under proper conditions and with
ample guarantees, it would -meet all expec
tations. Other types of pavement, claimed by many to be the equal of any, have been spasmodically
advertised, but none so systematically and persistently as bitulithic. Does it not reinforce the well
grounded contention of all experienced advertising men that the time to advertise is all the time,
especially when we find by the census reports that the National death rate is 1 7.4 per thousand and
the National birth rate is 32.1 per thousand?
The public is not always conscious of being influenced by advertising, but where all condi
tions are right it invariably has its effect, like the constant drop of water that wears away the stone.
"Advertising, properly done in right publicity channels, properly co-ordinated with selling plans,
KEPT UP, and backed up, never failed," says Mr. Hyskell. In fact, he goes so far as,to say in one
of his books. "Do not advertise at all unless it is undertaken with a determination to persevere
to continue on and on and on, persistently and systematically."
