Talk Given,
B Odegaard
Tracing the background of
speaking from the time of the
Middle Ages, Dean Charles E.1
Qdegaard of the literary college
yesterday noted today's declining
emphasis on the spoken word.
Talking before a speech depart-
ment assembly, Dean Odegaard
told of the place of speech in-
struction in undergraduate insti-
tutions. In the middle ages, he
said that oral instruction was of
prime importance.
The end of the term was.
marked by a student's being
able to take over instruction in
the subject he had studied, he
added. Graduation depended
on his ability to present his
learning orqlly.
Turning. to education in the
new world, Dean Odegaard told
that these traditions were inher-
ited by the University. At its first
commencement, all 11 graduates
had to make speeches.
Due to an increased number of
graduates, the University finally
omitted student speakers in 1875,
he said.

National Park Problems Discussed As Statewide!


_ _ _.

The scenic majesty and irre-
placeable biological values of our
nation's National Parks are con-
stantly threatened, according to
Howard R. Gregg, Assistant Chief
Naturalist of the U.S. Park Serv-
Gregg, in lectures t o natural
resource classes and to the public
yesterday, sounded a note of alarm
by relating the problems the Park
Service faces in trying to carry
out its two-fold purpose of pre-
serving areas of natural beauty
and yet giving the American pub-
lic practically unlimited use of
the same land.
. * * *
THE NATURALIST stated that
because more than half of the
population lives in cities, they
need "roots in the soil"-a prim-
eval wilderness they can turn to
for spiritual rejuvination; a place
to 'get away from it all.'
Too many people, Gregg, said,
spend their weekends just loun-
ging around in the Parks, en-
joying the society of friends
they could entertain as well in
their own home, while eager but

NPI is an example of a hospital
that carries out this .idea.
Most of the patients at the In-
stitute are those who come volun-
tarily. The law that established
NPI specifically prohibited com-

placed in the admitting ward, al

patient responsibility is less exten-

ren's ward, under Dr. Ralph D.
Rabinovitch, which forms a uni-
que part of the Institute's ser-
vices. Here approximately 25
children receive treatment de-
signed especially for mentally
disturbed children from the ages
of six to 14.I
The Neuropsychiatric Institute
is maintained by a state grant an-
nually appropriated by the Legis-
lature. Last year it amounted to
$500,000. Added to this is the in-

If you have not yet made up your
mind about your major, ask your
placement bureau about the many ad-
vantages of becoming an engineer.
Never before has engineering
offered such a wonderful future in
American business and industry, for
the companies seeking men with
engineering training are almost un-
limited in variety and scope.
Last year, for instance, over four.
hundred and fifty companies through-
out the country took the trouble to
contact a leading engineering college
for prospects, many of them com-

panies you would least expect to be
interested in hiring engineers.
Would you like to know more
about these companies and the op-
portunities they offer? Then fill out
this coupon and turn it in as directed.
The business office of this paper will
forward it to us. Inquiries are wel-
come from men of all four classes.
As advertising representatives of
more than 700 college newspapers,
we are in frequent contact with im-
portant comanies all over the nation
who seek engineering prosp'ects. We
will do our best to see that your in-
quiry reaches the proper source so
that interested companies can con..
tact you directly. No replies guaran-
teed but filling in this coupon map

Dear Sir:
One of the most prominent names in the quality watch market is the name OMEGA.
Possibly no other watch enjoys any finer reputation the world over than the watch which
bears the Greek letter meaning, Good Luck.
The universal acceptance of the Omega Automatic has won for it an unique
position in a highly competitive market. It is admired by men everywhere. Its round thin
case design has an unmistakable styling peculiarly its own. Dialed with 18K applied gold
numerals and stick markings it has a modern appearance that is handsome and masculine.
The Omega Automatic movement is truly one of the scientific achievements of
modern wrist watch manufacture. Mechanically and as a time-keeper the Omega watch has'no
peers. You owe it to yourself to see this watch before you buy. We invite you to
stop in now to learn more about the "Omega Story."
Omega automatics from $71.50 (federal tax included).

Additional supplies and ser-
vices in libraries and research
departments will need $201,332
while increasing needs in radio,
television, alumni relations and
publications require an addi-
tional $141,345.
The Extension Service is asking
$65,290 more to meet requests for
educational service from through-
out the state.
* * *
OF THE $977,000 asked for "re-
search and services in utilization
of human resources" the follow-
ing breakdown has been made.
1) Six-hundred thousand would
be turned over to medical purposes
to allow a person with an unusual
disease to be kept at the Hospital
without cost to him so that fur-
ther information regarding cure
of the disease can be obtained.
2) The School of Dentistry
would get $100,000 for furthering
public, education in the care of
teeth, expanded psychiatric care
for children who undergo treat-
ment for a cleft lip or palate, and
research in the use of radioactive
isotopes in the study of the per-
meability of tooth tissue and the
penetration of various drugs.
3) The School of Public Health
would be alloted $100,000 for ex-
pansion of research and commun-
ity education in public health.
4) Twenty-five thousand dollars
would go to study problems of
nursing education.
5) The Institute for Human Ad-
justment would get $125,000 to
carry on studies in the field of
speech and hearing disorders and
in the problems of old age.
Assessors Course
Continues at Union
The eighth annual Short Course
for Assessing Officers began yes-
terday with meetings at the Un-
ion, and will continue through to-

throughout the state attending.
The conference is sponsored by
the University Institute of Public
Administration a n d Extension
Service, in cooperation with other
state groups.

books such as "Harvest in the Des-

Samuel first divided all Jew-
ish literature into two classes,{
that written in Yiddish for Jews
only, and that written in other
tongues for non-Jews as well.
Samuel broke the latter group
into three groups. The first group
introduced Jews to the outside
world attempting to make a good
impression. The second group,
passing this stage of timidity,
showed things both good and bad.
The third group wove into the
English language "the colors of

Gesturing expressively, Samuel
acted as well as read passages
from books to illustrate his points.
