RELATION OF THE HAROLD YOUNG WRITES OF WORK OF Y. M. C. A. IN COL LEGE TOWNS NEW DEPARTMENT HAS IMPORTANT WORK Bible Classes Started In Eugene and Campaign Planed for Neighbor ing Towns. Primarily, the relation of any col lege or university association to the community depends upon the social needs and problems of that commun ity. Today the college man is, and rightly should be, regarded as a lead er. The commonwealth or community bestows upon him certain advantages and privileges through the maintain ance of an institution for his personal betterment. It expects that the com munity itself will be benefited in the long run by the increased efficiency of its citizens, who are college grad taues. They are expected to render a social service in proportion as they are the recipients of a social endow ment. A college association cannot create opportunities for social service to a J. Earl Jones.

So in this regard the scope of of work of different college Y. M. C. A.’s varies greatly. Never theless, it is, in any circumstance, none the less real. It is only to be expected that any student community work, whether on a large or small scale, should be of an educational as well as of an ad ministrative nature in so far as stud ents in training for this particular work are concerned. The work itself is of a varied char acter, depending upon the opportun ities open to and recognized by the Association. For instance in the Eastern institutions, Yale for exam ple, the Association conducts classes in elementary English for the ignor ant immigrants. Summer camps for the city boys are in charge of college men, who are men as well as athletes. This work is common to most all of the Eastern schools, where these opportunities exist. There the rela tion is evidently one of great intim acy. The city Y. M. C. A. and other philanthropic and social settlement organizations recognize the value of the service of Christian college men. On the other hand, one is apt to be dubious as to any tangible connection between an organization like our own Varsity Y. M. C. A. and our city or locality. We have no pronounced field of endeavor that enables us to clearly show our relation to the community. Although the Oregon Y. M. C. A. is possibly overlooking some practical work that could be done, it has been active in a line of work that is com mon to most all institutions in towns of any size the Bible study classes among High School men. This is the most popular extension work in nearly every college. Work ing usually in conjunction with the city associations, the classes are or ganized in the High Schools, with a view of not only presenting the Bible for what it is worth, but training the young men for Varsity work. To this end, in order to justify the Oregon Association, to establish its relation to the community in a more definite way, four classes of High School men meet every Monday noon in the city association building for thirty minute Bible study. The aver age attendance for the three weeks of their existance, per class, has been five, the total average attendance eighteen. The work is growing, and promises to be the foundation for more thorough work along this line in the future. Oregon students at the University of Washington have formed an Ore gon Club with over sixty members. Geo. Noble, of Oregon City, has been elected president. The club intends to give a dance at Portland during the Rose Carnival next June. H. R. Hanna, ’96, is official reporter of the 10th Judicial District, La Grande, rOegon.

GOOD PROGRESS MADE Continued from first page. reticent and for the most part main tained a mysterious silence through out. However, it was discovered that the A. T. O.’s have already ordered their costumes from New York and will begin dress rehearsal next week; they say their side show will furnish an excellent reason for father to leave home. The Phi Gamma Delta’s are going to pull off something heavy and melo dramatic. That will make special ap peal to the intellectual. Shakespeare was hinted at. The Theta’s say, “Ours is perfect ly howling,” and promise that it will not be a repetition of the Kappa Sig ma baby show of last year. All the stunts, freaks, side shows, and other performances, should be handed in to Miss Ruth Beach, head of the committee, for consideration. Space for the aforesaid performance will then be assigned. The fair is held as a benefit for the Y. W. Bungalow and all receipts of general admission and side shows will be turned over to the bungalow fund. The Y. W. C. A., however, merely oversees the affair. All of the student organizations in the University lend their aid. * * * ♦ * * * * * * CALENDAR FOR WEEK ******** * * * Sunday, Feb. 25—Devotional Meet ing. Y. M. C. A., Book Exchange, 3 P. M.

The two basketball games with Idaho, next Monday and Tuesday, in the Men’s Gymnasium, which open the conference schedule at home, is at tracting the center of attention now that the debate and the leap year par ty are things of the past. That bas ketball interest, despite the two de feats by Washington, is still running high, is shown by the rapidity with which the seats are being sold, at the prices of 75c for a reserved seat at both games, or 50c at one game. Oregon’s hopes for a championship basketball team for this season have not entirely disappeared .though much to the contrary has been published in the newspapers throughout the North west. The various sporting writers seem to regard Washington’s two vic tories over the local team at Seattle as proof conclusive of their superior ity. They do not take into considera tion that Oregon has lost but two games, that she has her own floor to play on for the remainder of the sea son and that Washington has yet to play many of her most important games, including two in Eugene. Though Oregon is somewhat ham pered by the loss of Rader, who has left college, with Jamison again in Vernon Motschenbacher. Secretary. Russell Calkins. Publicity. Committeemen— Oscar Haugen.

Oregon has six games to play yet, all on her own floor. Idaho comes to Eugene for two games Monday and Tuesday, the week following Pullman plays two here, and the next week brings the season to a close, with the final and deciding games with Wash ington.
