Spring fever has taken its annual
' hold upon the campus life, and is
making itself manifest by the exodus
towards the suburban walks and the
t limpid water of the famous Mill
The past month has seen the pass
ing of many of the more important
events upon the social calendar, not
ably the “Pan-Hel” dance last Satur
day. Coming are the two Student Body
informals, this evening, and April 4.
I Beta Theta Pi will give its formal
dance in the Gym March 22, while the
s Senior play, April 15, is an annual
event of interest.
The Men’s Gymnasium, which had
been transformed into a Spring lilac
bower, was the scene of one of the
prettiest and biggest of formal dances
at the University, when the local Pan
Hellenic Association gave its first
formal dance last Saturday evening.
The decorative scheme followed the
University colors of green and yel
low. This was carried out by a lattice
work of green which was stretched
between the balcony railings and
through which hung numerous yellow
shadded lights. The orhcestra played
within an arbor of Oregon grape and
yellow shaded lights which was placed
in the center of the floor.
The individuality of each of the six
sororities participating was main
tained by a special dance in which
some special feature was given.
These “specialties” were arranged in
the order of the entrance of the soror
ities into Pan-Hellenism. Gamma
Phi Beta came first.
During the Chi Omega dance a ca
noe was lowered through the lattice
work and candy kisses were thrown
from the canoe while the orchestra
played “You Can’t Expect Kisses
Mu Phi Epsilon lowered a large
basket of greens and lights, from
which a little girl threw bunches of
violets to the music of “Violets.”
They also secured a charming effect
by the use of the spot light which
shadowed the lattice work and flowers
on the floor with a true moonlight ef
This dance is planned as an annual
affair to take the place of large indi
About a hundred and fifty couples
were present, among which were sev
eral Alumni and former students. As
the invitation list is limited to the
Pan Hellenic members only, there
were few out-of-town guests.
Miss Pearl Horner is giving a
house party at her home in Corval

Delta upperclassmen, this week-end.
The party left yesterday afternoon,
and reached Corvallis in time for the
Friday evening basketball game.
Those who enjoyed Miss Horner’s
hospitality at her beautiful home in
the Benton county town, were Miss
Pearl Bonisteel, Elizabeth Lewis,
Norma Graves, Edith Still, Margaret
Mann, Cosby Gilstrap, and Josephine
► Moorhead. The party will return
Sunday evening. Miss Horner’s fa

Although threatened with extinc
tion for a couple of days on account
of the excursion to Corvallis, the
third Student Body informal of the
year is being held tonight. The Gym
will again be the scene of a rollick
ing evening of informality, which has
come to mark these dances, and to
stamp them as one of Oregon’s noted
institutions of democracy.
Chi Omega entertained Thursday
afternoon with an informal tea for the
upperclassmen of the different soror
ities, for Miss Martha Land, of Lex
ington, Kentucky. Miss* Land, who
has been visiting the Alpha Psi chap
ter of her sorority for the past week,
is the editor of the Chi Omega maga
The O. A. C. basketball games

Varsity society, which especially
marked the closing game Thursday

Means Much to University.
“This means much to the Univer
sity,” declared Professor E. W. Al
len, head of the Journalism depart
ment, receiving the news this after
noon with enthusiasm. “The mem
bers of the Press Club are to be con
gratulated. That Sigma Delta Chi
should have considered Oregon a field
for a new chapter is complimentary
not only to the present members but
to the University. As I understand
it, Oregon is the second University
on the Coast to be granted a chap
“The influence of such an organi
zation here will do much for the de
partment of Journalism. It adds a
further goal to the ambitious jour
natists, who must make good before
they are even eligible to membership.
I am very glad that the Press Club pe
tition has been granted.”
The history of the University of
Oregon Press Club dates back to
1909, when the college newspaper cor
resondents came together from mo
tives of fellowship. The organization
has been continued each year, though
more or less independently. The pres
ent Press Club last fall undertook the
winning of a national charter for Ore
gon, and selected Sigma Delta Chi as
the most ambitious goal. After four
months of continuous work word was
received today telling of the success
of the Oregon petition.
