Offerings of Oregon Sys
tem of Education
Dr. D. V. Poling, Chairman of
the High School Relations Com-
mittee of the Oregon State System
of Higher Education, in his address
Friday morning to the senior class
of the high school outlined and
«»plained the dfl- 'erings of the
different schools of the Oregon
System of Higher Education: the
three normal schools, University of
Oregon, Oregon State College, the
Medical School, study by corres
pondence and by extension, and
ladio school. He stressed the re-
quirements and opportunities of
each branch of education and
replied to questions put to him by
In regard to living at a college,
Dr. Poling stated that there is a
growing spirit of democracy evi
dent. No longer is it necessary to
belong to a fraternity or sorority
to be accepted in student body
activities and social functions. Co
operative houses are increasing in
number for those students who do
not care to live in a dorm.
Following his hour with the sen-
iors, Dr. Poling spoke to the stu-
dent body. He pointed out that

and women do not receive higher
education, the lack of it should
not prohibit those persons from

“CAT AND CANARY” ALIVE
WITH CHILLS AND CHUCKLES—
Connoisseurs of that type of
motion picture which masterfully
combines scary doin’s with clever
quips and more than a few mo-
ments of romance have a distinct
treat in store for them at the Joy
Theatre where ♦ Paramount’s “The
Cat and the Canary,” starring that
pre-eminent gagster of screen and
radio, Bob Hope, and lovely Paul
ette- Goddard, will show Saturday.
Based on the famous stage play
by John Willard, a story which
terrified and titillated Broadway
playgoers for hundreds of per-
formances, “The Cat and the Can

combination of fine acting on the
ZANE GREY STORC SETS HIGH
GRADE OF FANGE DRAMA—
The vast heritage of literature
dialing with the American West is
eliminated by the works of Zane

which will' come Saturday to the
Joy Theatre, featuring a grand
caet of popular favorites including
Russell “Lucky” Hayden, Victor
Jury, Jean Parker, J. Farrell Mac
Donald and Britt Wood.
This Zane Grey yarn looms as
one which combines plenty of ac
tion and romance, with even more
emphasis than usual on the ro-
n ance since the theme of the pic
ture lies in the gallantry of an out-
lew who is won over to honesty by
the love of a beautiful girl.
