President Campbell is in receipt of
a letter from Barcelona, Portugal,
asking for copies of the University

a foreigner’s conception of the correct

Con tributions by Gifted Writers Will
Make Year’s First Issue Great
The first issue of the Oregon
Monthly will be out Saturday. This
issue has been devoted principally to
Commencement and Alumni news,
one of the features is to be Mrs. Ellen
Condon McCornack’s article on Ore
gon’s first commencement, when she
with two others graduated.
Hal Bean has written an interesting
account of Friday Harbor—the spirit
of the life and the essence of what the
students accomplished there. A cut of
the place has been inserted as a front
A “breezy” account about Summer
School will also appear. The author
ship, however, is unknown. The sta
tistical articles concerning what each
class has left to the University, to
gether with the alumnae notes, will
be of great interest.
Professor Dunn has also contributed
to this issue of the Monthly. His con
tribution came in the form of a class
ical and polished poem.
An anonymous writer sent in a good
German poem. Among the stories is
one by Esther Grisson, which deserves
special commendation. It is alive
with local color and is a clever por
trayal of humanity in general. Earl
Stannard has written a satire on “The
Modern Method of Teaching Poetry,”
which shows good literary ability.
Dean Collins has contributed another
of his humorous “Martin Miggs” stor
Every article is of interest, and the
first issue of the Oregon Monthly
promises to be a success.

At present the Student Body is

this number be extended, if possible.
