OIK STAR REPORTER
“Who is the Emerald’s star repor
This was the question an inquisitive
Co-ed put to the managing editor a
few days ago, and which he couldn’t
answer. He started to name one, but
each time as he was about to mention
one of his news sleuths, he remembered
an instance when this one had failed
to get his story in on time, or that one
had slutFed a good story into a six
line squib, while still another hadn’t
shown up at all. So what he did was
to tell her that they were all “star”
reporters yes, he did have “some”
Oh, how that did hurt! Every pa

newspapers has one; so the Emerald

Hut it will take two weeks to pick
him. Here is the plan:
To the Emerald reporter who does
the beat work in two weeks the Emerald
will give $'1.00, in addition to making
him the “star” reporter. To the sec
ond best reporter will be handed $2.50.
This will apply to all reporters and
heads of departments. The city edi
tor, the copy editors, and the “higher
ups” will not be eligible in this con
test, but the others will have an equal
There are a lot of qualifications for
a star reporter, but three are import
ant. The first is to be able to "cover”
a story when he sees it, no matter
whether it has been assigned or not.
This is originality, or in newspaper
slang a “nose for news.” The second
is reliability. When a story is as
signed, it must be covered fully, and
without fail. The third is promptness.
Every managing editor has a fight on
his hands with each of hfs stall' to
keep the copy coming in early. It is,
natural that each reporter feel that
since the paper does not come out un
til live o’clock, his story can wait until
4:20, because it is important and the
paper must have it. The result is
that the typesetting machines, which
have been idle half the day, are flood
ed with copy just before press time.
I he paper is late and the subscriber
growls because he has to go to bed
without his Emerald. The Emerald
reporter covering the average story,
has two days to get it in, and he must
get it in as promptly as possible on
the first day.
Here are the rules for the Emerald’s
star reporter contest:
For every original story found by
the reporter which has not been as
signed, the reporter will l>e given from
60 to 500 credits, according to the
worth of the story.
For every story turned in late,—
that is when a story happening early
Monday is not turned in until Tuesday
morning, or a story available Monday
night does not come until noon the
next day, the reporter is fined from 50
to 200 credits, according to the seri
ousness of the procrastination.
When any reporter fails to cover his
assignment without excuse that is
without explaining to the city editor
. .why his story is not available, and ob
taining a release, he Is fined 500

ber of credits checked°to him at the

The prize may be in cash or in trade
with the Emerald advertisers. If in
trade, the first prize is worth $4.00, if
in cash, $3.00. The second prize is
worth $2.50 in trade or $2.00 in cash.

Oregon Alumnae are not eligible to
membership, but may become asso
ciate members according to a clause
in the national constitution, which
reads, “Any woman may become an
associate member, providing she is a
graduate of a four year college course
granting the degree of B. A.” At
present the association wishes to co
operate with the Oregon alumnae in
their work. The Fellowship Commit
tee of the organization has awarded
and maintained 28 foreign fellowships
of $500 each and eleven American of
$250 or $350 each. A candidate for
this fellowship must hold the degree
of Ph. D. or must present work, which
in the judgment of the committee of
experts in her chosen field would en
title her to the Ph. D. degree. This
committee makes a study of the pres
ent laws and their operation; it stu
dies proposed legislation affecting
educational institutions and methods,
and helps to further desirable and pre
vent undesirable legislation.
Members of the Association who
are serving as trustees of colleges
form a committee which considers
such subjects as tuition, number of
students, housing, food, and hygiene,
social conditions, courses of study,
grading, systems, and the relative
merits of entrance by examination or
on certificate. Since 1898 this com
mittee has had charge of collecting
and publishing statistical and other
information of special interest to col
lege women. It has studied school
sanitation, juvenile courts, child labor,
playground privileges, and is at pres
ent investigating the subject of voca
tional opportunities for college trained
