In today’s issue the Emerald is be
ginning: an experiment. For the next
few weeks :t column will be open to
students who want employment and
to employers who desire student
For some years the University Y.
"M. C. A. has maintained a free em
ployment bureau for the benefit of
students working their way through
college. Not a few owe their contin
ued presence at the University to po
sitions obtained through this office.
Its work, however, has been some
what limited by the lack of efficient
means of advertising either Ihc job
or the student needing: it.
What the Emerald is point’: to do is
to print in each issue a list of posi
tions open to students and of stu
dents wanting work, which will be
furnished by the V. M. C. A. bureau.
Any student, however, is perfectly at
liberty to put his work wanted notice
in the Emerald independently of the
Employment lUireau, if he so desires.
And any student employer can call up
the Emerald office and advertise tree
of charge for student help.
The Emerald has an extensive cir
culation among Eugene employers,
and is read by practically every stu
dent. If students and employers take
a mutual interest, in this new column,
both are sure to benefit.
This veldure, designed primarily to
assist the numerous students who
find it necessary to support them
selves while in college. The Emerald
asks tlie co-operation of Oregon stu
dents and Eugene employers toward
making' it fulfill its purpose.

o WHAT THE COLLEGE o
o EDITORS ARE SAYING o
INTER-FRATERNITY UNION ANI)
ANTI-1 A T E R NIT Y AG IT A I I ON
“It is a rather surprising coincidence
that while some legislators were si
lently starting anti-fraternity investi
gation, the fraternities were silently
increasing their already recognized
value by uniting in a strong Pan-Hel
“It is not at all surprising, how
ever, that the anti-fraternity agita
tion sneaked out as silently as it
sneaked in, died, and was buried as
unfounded agitations are; nor that
the Pan-Hellenic had already shown
its worth, is flourishing ancf promising
big things. This inter-fraternity
union not only strengthens fraterni
ties, individually and collectively, and
raises and unifies their standards, all
of which are good things, but it in
creases their usefulness and aims to
make them more vafuable factors in
the progress of the University. Its
organization should be hailed with ap
proval by all.
“The agitation which was based on
misconceptions due to lack of inti
macy with the meaning, ideals, pur
poses, and uses of fraternity, has been
“PLAN YOUR COURSE"
“With a broad elective system, such
as exists in some of our departments,
danger presents itself of hodge-podge
courses, overbalanced courses, and
courses chosen with no other reasona
ble explanation than that they were
worked out on the line of least resist
ance. At tlie same time, the freedom
given under the Michigan system has
great advantages- it is the ideal sys- j
tern, if it is not abused.
“With a new semester at hand,
every undergraduate is facing a big (
responsibility. How much do you
know about the courses that you
might take next semester? How much
do you care? To what extent are
you consciously trying to get the best
that thi' university has for you? How j
far are you intelligently planning
ahead? How consistent is your col
lege course going to be? Is it going
to have a climax? -or are you going
to be taking first year subjects your
last year? Have you really an end in
view? What thing or things are you
going to know when you get through?
“These are questions every student
should ask himself several times a
year. They are things he should find
out about that is seriously investi
gate. He should ask himself often
where he is and whither he is tending,
lie should study the campus, the pro
fessors on the campus, the things that
are for him.
“It is unfortunate that so many
courses are filled up by men who just
drift in. It is unfortunate that the
so-called “snap” courses are so large
ly chosen simply because they are
easy. It is unfortunate that so many
men fail to get deep enough into any
one department to be able to take ad
vantage of the seminary courses,
where direct touch with the heads of
departments is possible. A little bit
about a good many things and a good
deal about one or two things, as the
motto of President Lowell, of Har
vard, is a good rule to follow.
“Think it over seriously. Plan a
little. Keep in mind that you will be
a senior some day, and you ought to j
plan so that it will be a year of real
fruition, before you get through you
should have touched reality. When
vou look back on your college course, i
it ought to have counted for some
thing definite. “Michigan Daily.
