The Benefit from Informals.
The success of the Matinee dance
justified its being held. A spirit of
true democracy prevailed, fraternity
lines were smothered for the time be
ing, all formality was discarded, and
some one hundred and fifty students
mixed in an affair of solid enjoyment.
It speaks well for Oregon when a
party of this kind can be pronounced
a success, for it shows that the desire
to become acquainted and mingle with
ones fellows is present among our
students, even in this day of many
fraternities, and that the old time
western idea of hospitality find dem
ocracy has not become strangled with
the eastern emmigration and rapid
development of the state.
We wish it were possible to have
more such informal gatherings of
University students; dances, smokers,
not smokerless either, co-ed parties,
stag mixes, and general mixes, for it
is such affairs that bring a man into
direct communication with his fellows.
Formals have their place in our col
lege life and we have no desire to dis
credit them, as the Oregonian seems
to believe, but it is in the informal
mixes that we learn men as they are
and become more tolerant in our
views; in other words, we are helped
individually and collectively by friend
Who Kims (ho (iyinnnsium?
In nnswer to the question, “Are you
running the gymnasium,” fired at the
editor of the Emerald hy the Steward
of the University in answer to the
question, “May we have clocks in the
gymnasium,” we will say, “No, we
have no desire to run that building,
and we asked you for the clocks only
because every man in the University
sees the need of them and because a
little placard posted in the library
bearing the steward's signature, asks
us to report to the office anything
needed in the various University
building's.” We had no intimation
that a report would be considered a
personal matter and the reporter in
sulted, and we sincerely regret that
it was considered as such. We all
are trending on dangerous ground
when we become so wrapped up in
our work that we allow our personal
feelings to get the better of us, and
forget to act with that official court
esy the public demands of all of its
servants We are all here to work
for our University and should be only
to glad to receive kindly meant sug
gestions, which will render more effi
cient our departments. None of us
are above criticism, and none of us
should hold personal a suggestion or
criticism directed toward our work.
No (iroup Pictures.
It is to be hoped that the Oregana
this year will not be littered with a
lot of group pictures. Of all the
rookey advertisements a school can
present the picture of a group of
students standing sublimely on the
front steps of a building holds first
place. The year books put out by
Eastern institutions consistantlv fight
diy of them and substitute individual
groupings in their stead.
Classes, societies, clubs, etc., when
the editor of the Oregana notifies yoi
that your picture is desired, pleas<
dispense with that grouping, in whicl
the stalwarts line up in the back row
the humans in the middle row, anc
the pigmies squat awkwardly in front
with wrinkled coats and big hand;
showing—give him a group made up
of individual pictures. Let’s have a
classy looking book this year to sene
to our friends.
