OREGON WOMEN SIP
PORT MANY ACTIVITIES
POWER GIVEN TO ACT OF
FICIALLY FOR WOMEN
Mutual Good Will and Under
standing Brought About Among
Members and Students.
Oregon's first Women’s Undergradu
ate Advisory Council was organized at
die beginning of the present school year.
For many years a need has been felt
for some organization which would have
the power to act for the University wo
men in matters pertaining to them.
As a result of due consideration of this
lack, sixteen senior girls formed them
selves into such a hotly.
Although the existence of this conn
cil has been brief, much has been accorn
plished in the way of bringing about
mutual good-will and understanding
among its members and the other girls
in college. I he aim of the council is
to be of benefit to every girl in col
lege, whether she is an upperclassman,
a luwcrclassman or a post-graduate.
Suggestions which if carried out would
promote this good will are always glad
I he sixteen women who form the
council at present will go out from the
i htiversity in a few weeks, and others
must come up from the ranks of the
juniors to till their places.
I lie constitution provides that in May
of each year, the junior girls shall meet
and elect sixteen girls from among
their own number who shall represent
them in the council during the ensuing
year. I liese elections take place next
I hursday at 4:00 p m in Professor
I )el oil’s room.

I hiring the past year two innovations
have been taken up; one, the social
meetings, the other the Bible study
groups. The social meetings are belli
at the sorority bouses, and have been
effectivi in bringing the girls into closer
relation. Several of the bouses have
forme . individual Bible study classes,
which are led by l uiversiey professors.
1 liese have proven very beneficial.
Ibe regular Y. W. A. meetings
have been instructive this year. Many
prominent speakers, such as Professors
I )unn, Swectser, Schaefer, and Terrill,
and Mrs. Miller, have given their assist
acne in making them especially attrac
tive. Special emphasis should lie laid
upon the excellent musical „ numbers
that have played an important part in
all the gatherings.
But it is on the financial side that the
\ssociation has more than ever before
concentrated during the past year. The
girls are planning to build a bungalow,
which is to serve as a place for rest
and study for all the University girls.
I be need foi such a place lias long
been tv It, and now its fulfillment is
being realized for the first time. The
girls, through the efficient aid of the
advisory board, tire gradually obtain

later one of his colleagues in the State
Normal School at Madison, South Da

work of the distinguished guest.

graduation with the famous “War Class
