Tomorrow the April vacation begins
and most of us are leaving with unal
loyed joy for the nine day recess. “What
is a vacation,” a number of students
wete asked. “A change,” "A rest,’
"A chance to do what you want to do,”
aie characteiistic answers. All were
partly true; none wholly. The conven
tional vacation is, of course, a change
of occupation, absolute idleness re
.juiies a degree of concentration few]
of us can attain, and is usually ac
companied by a change of place. The j
business man goes to the beach; we go
home. 'I lie definition holds true of
But it is not the mere change of
woik or of scenes that matters, it is
the change of mental attitude. The
vacation motive is essentially an effort
lo get away from things; not so much
that we desire flesh scenes and oecu
potions as that we are tired of the old.
Ili nco it is not so important where we
go or what wc take with us for amuse
ment, as what we leave behind. Un
it worry and care, which are dogs
hold to lose, are chained behind, it
can he no true holiday.
'I he spirit of vacation is freedom,
hut tliis is not attained until we lib
e ate ourselves from both the “set”
of our mental habits and the crumped
trial surroundings in which most of
us live. Tile value of novel scenes and
fresh activities lies in their power to
divoit from the habitual and so to
help us to leave our everyday selves
The chief object of a vacation is to
pive tbc individual a cnance to develop
his individuality. It is only when we
cot away from the people and things
we come in contact with every day
that we can express very much of our
own true selves. A true vacation
oives our embryonic or atrophied
powers of poutaneous movement a
chance to worl.; let us readjust our
elves to tile world.
I he tine spirit in which to start on
a vacation is that of release from
b onlay ; pet awa\ from all care; for
pet. the everyday things of the life
that lias become humdrum. You will

The power of the newspaper as a
moulder of public opinion is recog
nized to be enormous. University
correspondents and editors can bring
praise or discredit to their college by
the way in which they present its ac
tivities to the public. Sigma Delta
Chi furnishes a means for these men
to get together, decide a line of policy
and follow it up consistently. It is
likely to exert a quiet influence on
University affairs, and especially on
th'> public view of the University,
which can easily be underestimated.
Moreover, it will furnish a goal for

Blue Bird,” before the Fortnightly

■ial meeting in the Commercial Club
A number of the partons of litera
ture and club members, including its
president. Miss Julia Burgess, of the
University, formed the receiving line
that greeted the large audience of
towns and University people.
The mystical simplicity and charm
of the two little children who had a
dream that they were in search of the
"Blue Bird,” which is to the French
people the symbol of happiness, was
brought out to the fullest extent of
its possibilities. The purring of the
Cat and the growl of the Dog were
imitated by Professor Reddie in an
inimatible manner. Indeed, his per
sonification of all of the allegorical
personages, Bread, Light, Water, Su
gar and Fire were excellent.
The University of Oregon orchestra,
under the leadership of Miss Wini
fred Forbes, played several selections
>f Humperdink's compositions.
Miss Whoshe "??? stole three
kisses from me last night.”
Miss Critishe “Oh, he doesn’t know

ever had before.”
