It is !<> lie regretted that more stu
dents do not remain for Commencement.
I he University of Oregon is now be
ginning a strong upward movement to
take its place among the greater State
Universities, and the Commencement
program here, as in other of the older
and larger institutions, will he the
greatest event of the year.
\side from the interest and pleasure
which the right kind of a Commence
ment program should hold for the indi
vidual, there is a distinct utilitarian val
ue to the University itself in the occa
sion Commencement, as the closing
scene ot a life that Inis become attached
to the pleasant customs and happy tra
ditions of a college community, and as
a means of bringing to mind .again to
those who have come hack to partici
pate in the event, all the happy days
that tire lett behind, is distinctly the
means of cementing lirmlv the alle
giance n! students and graduates alike
to the interests of the institution.
I hat the University needs all that is
best in her adherents is no idle thought.
I he next few years should see a won
derful development in her growth, .as
the whole West is expanding, and the
state of Oregon in particular is opening
up her resources and tilling in with
population. Ihe growth in the number
ol high schools in the state in the last
few years has been phenomenal. The
( niversity must claim its share of
the graduates. In order to raise its

Oregana Announces New Fea
tures in Advertising and
A series of mock or fake advertise
ments, consisting of clever take-offs on
prominent and near prominent college
men, will he one of the features of this
year's Oregana, copy for which is now
in the hands of the printer. These ads.

The literary department of this book
is expected to prove a sensation, as it
contains several stories that are said
to he far above the average found in
the ordinary college annual. This de
dartment is not often given much at
tention, but Editor Robison has devot
ed his best efforts to it this year.
Two stories are particularly worth
mentioning. One is “The Last of the
Class of Thirty-two,” a story that Pro
fessors llowe and Tlnirber declare will
live in the world’s literature. “The Man
Who Smiled” is another that, while
shorter, is of high merit. Dean Collins
has also consented to have his master
piece, “The Alchemist,” appear for the
first time in the Oregana. This is a po
em of unusual merit an dwill be looked
forward to with interest by the stu
dents, whom he has entertained by his
clever work in the Monthly during the
