MECHANICAL DIVINEGETS FIRST AQUALTRIAL AT UNIVERSITYProposed Robot DeviceMakes AppearanceIn Swift 401AID TO ELOCUTIONProfessor Edwards UsesWire Spools to TeachCorrect SpeakingBy Edgar A. GreenwaldThe Divinity school seems to havestolen a march bn the combinedschools of science, education, and so¬ciology, Yesterday Prof. W. F. Og-burn described to The Daily Maroona visiionary school where robot pro¬fessors reeled their lectures offspools of magnetized wire, and to¬day Mr. Davis Edwards points outto prospective ministers their errorsin elocutoin by means of that veryapparatus.The mechanism has been set up inSwift 401, the office of Davis Ed¬wards, associate profes.sor of publicspeaking in the Divinity school andthe Chicago Theological seminary.The principle of this type of repro¬duction, invented by Marconi, con¬sists of magnetizing a spool of thinwire. This 'spool is then reversedand the original modulations of thevoice are reproduced. Althoughknown for many years and marketedto a limited extent, the apparatushas never been perfected to thestage where electrical noises wereeliminated and fine inflections re¬corded. Furthermore, earphoneswere the sole method of hearingover again what had been recorded.Voice* Ropredueo WellShortly before Spring vacation Mr.Edwards with the help of Wilfred E.Knntley, electrical engineer for TheAutomatic Electric Company, addedthe chassis of an ordinary radio setto the original unsatisfactory equip¬ment. This made it possible to re¬produce the recordings through aloud speaker. Other adjustments inthe balance of electrical circuitswere also accomplished and theformer noises eliminated.The set now has sufficient powerto reproduce. the human voice withoriginal intensity, and enough clar¬ity to make the overemphasis of theidentical consonants in speaking dis¬tinguishable. Mr. Edwards remarkedthat as soon as funds could be raisedfor further experiments land addi¬tions, the set would be perfected toan extent which would make it adesirable feature in clas.sroom in¬struction. Although the mechanismis now being used with fairly satis¬factory results, Mr. Edwards believesthat improvements are known whichwill be of considerable value towardeventual perfection.Aid in Teaching of Elocution“We have found this set to beinvaluable in correcting mistakesmade in speaking”, Mr, Edwardssaid. “No one hears his own voiceas others do—for physical reasons—until it is reproduced. Then only willhe recognize to a satisfactory extentthe errors he has committed. Fur¬thermore, varieties and interpreta¬tions of meanings take on a new im¬portance w’hen the student hearsthem from an objective position.“The improvements made duringthe spring vacation have made itpossible to pick up radio programs(Continued on page 8)Y.

The cla^is being conducted by Mr. Ivan A.Booker as part of a series of re¬search experiments in the field ofsilent reading at the college level.If the results prove valuable, a sim¬ilar course may be included in theregular curriculum 'for enteringfreshmen.Sixteen VolunteerThe new class is composed of six¬teen volunteer students, all of whomare members of a sectional confer¬ence group in History 141.Meetings are held for one houreach day in addition to the regularlectures and conferences of the his¬tory course, and the assigned historymaterial is used as the basis of thisexperimental reading. This enablesthe student to prepare his next day’slesson under supervision, and withthe aid of common discussion amongthe group. It is in this respect thatthe reading class here differs fromother experiments of a similar na¬ture in other universities, for, previ¬ously, special material was compiledfor reading.Grows From Reading TestsThis class is the outgrowth ofreading tests which were administer¬ed in connection with various ex¬aminations which were given to allentering freshmen at the opening ofthe autumn quarter. Through thesetests it was discovered that the aver-age rate of reading performance forthe freshman class was 3.68 wordsper second, which is .68 higher thanthe minimum achievement expectedof high school students. In the vol-'untecr class this quarter the averageperformance to date is 2.72; as theclass advances additional tests willbe given to alcertain the increase inperformance. In addition to a slowrate of reading, certain students arehandicapped because of a limited vo-cabul^arly, difficulties in sentencestructure, or because of poor organ¬ization.During the winter quarter furtheranalytic studies of cases were madeby means of photographing eye-movements of the student while hereads. It was upon the basis ofthese results during the fall and win¬ter quarters that diagnoses weremade of the individual cases of stu¬dents in the new course begun thisspring.Prevous reading experiments wereconducted by Mrs. Pressey at Ohio(Continued on page 2)Ponies, Phi B.

As an interpreter of Ameri¬can life, Anderson attempts to definethat world in terms of the machineand the complete change which ithas WTOught upon the outlook ofthose who live under its influence.Having thus painted the backgroundfrom which the writer has gleanedhis philosophies of life, Mr. Ander¬son will proceed to discuss the youngwriter and one of the largest fields'Which he may enter, journalism.Mr. Anderson is the editor of theonly two papers in Marion, Virginia,and as an author of some fifteenvolumes of prose, he will face theproblem of whether a journalist canbe a successful author. He will dis¬cuss the opportunities of writerstering the field and the questionswhich must be answered by thosewho are trying to make a decisionbetween journalism and literature.AaMvicaa PressThetMieries wilL conclude with hisanswer to “What Has BCappened toAmerican Newspapers?”, in whichMr. Anderson will elaborate on“Hello Towns” with detailed discus¬sions of journalism in. the city andin the country, in daily papers andweekly journals.

Do¬lan, chairman of the executive com¬mittee: Irving Eisenstein for the Se¬nior class; Robert T. McKinlay forthe Junior class; and Herman L. Tay¬lor for the Freshman class.”“Vital to Progress of Democracy”The students in the Law Schoolfeel that the high tuition excludes agreat number of young men thatshould have the opportunity of pro¬curing a legal education at a reiason-able charge. Quoting the resolutionsof the American Bar Association, theletter says that “considerations ofAmerican Democracy demand thatthe purely economic factors be sub¬merged when the costs of legal edu¬cation are fixed”. The law studentsfeel that the doors of the legal pro¬fession should be kept open to allwho possess the requisite strengthof character and power of intellectregardless of their financial condi¬tion.Basing their argument on the factthat this University was granted acharter from the State of Illinois bywhich the school was to go tax-exempt, it was expected that theUniversity reciprocate by offeringeducational advantages to the peo¬ple. The letter sums up the view ofthe law students by saying: “you(the administration) take the poorman’s tax dollar through virtue ofthe fact that you are • tax-exempt,and when he asks for something inreturn in the form of educational ad¬vantages for his children at a pricehe can afford, you give him a smash¬ing blow in the face.”Tuition Triples in Ten Year*The letter expresses the view thatthe University owes an obligation tothose men who have made donationsto the Universty in that the Univer¬sity has used such donations for pur¬poses which exclude a great major¬ity of young men who should liketo enter the legal profession. Thetuition in the Law School has (if thepurchasing power of the dollar betaken into account) been more thantripled in the last ten years. The ex¬planation which was offered by theDean of the school stated that “thechanges in the faculty, improve¬ments in the curriculum, and the ad¬dition of new courses have clearlyjustified the increase.”The signers of the letter point outthat the recent additions to the fac¬ulty in no way replace the men whaare no longer connected with theUniversity for various reasons, and[therefore no such increase in tuition(Continued on page 3)All petitions of candidates forelection to the Undergraduate Stu¬dent council must be submitted tothe council in care of the Facultyexchange by this noon.

Carlson, and Prof. H.H. Newman have frequently pointed out to their classes that super-stion and sheer stolidity in scientific matters are just as prevalenttoday as they were in the days of witch-burning. An outstandingproof of this statement is afforded by bill number 453 now beforethe Illinois state House Committee on judiciary which prohibits allexperimentation on dogs. In order to stop the passage of thisinane measure, several members of the University appeared beforethe Committee yesterday to offer their protests.The whole story, of course, hinges on vivisection and thenumerous attacks it has invited chiefly in old-dame circles wherepink ribbons and poodles serve as embellishments to an accom¬plished life. From time to time others have contributed their littlesay-so to the muddle, and now a rigid wall of prejudice has beenbuilt which bids fair to fortify safely the lives of the canine race,.Among those who have added in this respect to the matter is Mr.G. B. Shaw whose knowledge on scientific matters is always con¬siderably less than his actual experience. All of which, however,fails to make any difference to Mr. Shaw.And yet, of all the arguments formulated in behalf of anti¬vivisection, Shaw’s is the most pleasible and may, therefore be takenas the most intelligent. In his “Back to Methuselah” he emphatical¬ly drags out the unfortunate experiences of Weisman who sincerelybelieved that by cutting off the tails of successive generations ofmice he would develop a breed minus the proverbial tails. Strangeto say, the mice kept rearing offspring with perfect tails. Now, saysMr. Shaw, anybody could have foreseen that tailess mice cannot beproduced in Weisman’s manner—which is true—and so the sumtotal of that famous scientist’s experiments was a merciless bit ofcruelty to some innocent mice. From this incident he draws therather far-fetched conclusion that most scientists are habitually ad¬dicted to errors of this type and for that reason make ninety-fivepercent of their work butchery.It is impossible to say how great an influence Shaw has diffusedthrough his writings and arguments, but certainly it is safe to saythat despite his rash verbosity his intelligence surpasses that of thestate legislature. And so down in Springfield the goodly state ofIllinois has the pretty situation of a group of men putting up a billformulated by inferior minds to the certain detriment of scientificresearch. Should the bill be passed, science, especially the nqedicalbranch, will receive severe setbacks which may result in the delayof remedies for stubborn diseases. The sad feature is that incidentsof this type are provoked by arguments less rational than Shaw’swhich is so obviously full of holes that it is not even taken into con¬sideration in thinking circles.The matter is extremely enigmatic. The same group of humanereformers which wildly makes a gesture in behalf of stray dogs, ac¬cepts at any price that is demanded the results of former experi¬ments on dogs and other animals. As soon as one of them has astomach ache, the best physician is summoned. Note—the bestphysician is summoned and not the state legislature. But when aquestion equally weighty* as far as science and its possible benefitsto humanity arises, the scientists must go to Springfield to protest,not to testify. No one would think of asking them first. The billis simply put up without going any further for information than thesenate lobby.Humane experimentation is highly desirable and laws to thateffect should be rigidly enforced. But the absolute cessation of vivi¬section on dogs M a paralytic ttroke for science . . , E. A. G.\ THE DAILY MAROON, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 1931!

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 15, 1931MdflGAN STATE ANDN.CAROLINA PARTIESHAVE NO WATCHERSFaculty members will no longerbe bothered with the doubtfulpleasure of being present at numer¬ous social fuctions under a new pla*iof supervising behavior at partiesat Michigan State college. An“honor system for parties,’ provid¬ing for a committee of three to fivemembers from social groups, will re¬place the former system of patronsand patronesses.The Interfarternity Council willhold to account these committees;if there is criticism of behavior at adance, or evidence of breach ofcampus socal rules, the council mayorder an investigation and fix pun¬ishment for violations.Representatves of social groups atUniversity of North Carolina metrecently with university officials anddrew up a set of regulatons for cam¬pus social affairs. Control of houseparties will be in the hands of acommittee composed of three facultymembers and three students. Stu¬dents are thus given an equal voicewith the faculty in dealing with allquestions regarding social fuctons.The regulations adopted at NorthCarolina show an absence of restric¬tion and emphasis of placing re¬sponsibility for carrying out ordinaryrules of good besavior on the stu¬dents. Cooperation from studentsand discretion by those in chargewill be the keynote of any successwhich the plan may attain.These plans indicate a tendencyto place more and more reliance onstudents to “come through” as befitsmen and women who are about totake their places in the business and social world as leaders in communi-j' ty, state, and nation. It is in linewith recent developments in thej fields of selection of curricula by stu¬dents in place of stereotyped coursesI of study, with recent action in abo-! lishing scheduled examinations inj favor of examinations at the request1 of students when they feel thatI they have competed requirementsi for the course in question, and withI thhe honor system for conduct of; examinations and class work.Whether .the social rules asi adopted at Michigan State and NorthI Carolina would be practical at Ore¬gon is questionable. Students on thiscampus are prone to object to thepresent system; not all faculty; members, by any means, favor theI system whereby they shall be present' at student affairs as watch dogs ofsociety. But is Oregon State readyfor the change?Obivious failure of students tolend hearty cooperation to the honorcouncil in enforcing the letter andspirit of the present honor systemmay be an answer to that question.Mature men and women who haveshown themselves so puerile as tobe unable to enforce a fairly work¬able system as that now in force arehardly ready to take on the addedresponsibility of an “honor systemfor parties?.”—G.

Her bureau is now re¬garded as one of the finest in thecountry.Its main function is in helpingchildren in junior and senior highschools ^ho are nterested in specialcourses plan their curriculum in themost beneficial way. This depart¬ment also inaugurated the the rulingthat children from fourteen to six¬teen have certificates to work and indeserving cEises, they aid in secur¬ing these.In her lecture, Miss Davis willtell of the development of the bu¬reau and its division into subordin¬ate bureaus.The Renaissance society of theUniversity and the Antiquarian so¬ciety of the Art Institute are spon¬soring the exhibition of the ancientGuelph treasure at the McKinlockgalleries of the Art Institute. Thetreasure is of such value that a spe¬cial detail of police has been as¬signed by the city to keep constant guard over it.In all, the collection consists ofeighty-two exhibits. Its name is de¬rived from the German house ofGuelph which played an importantpart in its collection. This beganabout the year one thousand andcontinued for the next five hundredyears. For this reason it offers anamost unparalleled example of theexpression of the spiritual and ar¬tistic feeling of the Middle Ages, sothat the principle value of the treas¬ure lies in its craftsmanship ratherthan in its intrinsic worth. Some ofthe reliquaries on exhibition are saidto contain such remarkable relics asthe tooth of St. John the Baptist andthe arm of St. Bartholomew.
