Masque dances seem to be the fa vorite form of amusement in the Junior and Senior classes, but th< Seniors have gone the third-year men one better and have followed the ex ample of the class of 1913, In plan ning a lottery dance to take place early in the second semester. Tilt idea is a good one and there is no reason why the success of last year's Senior party should not be dupli cated. Two main advantages in tills may be mentioned, it furnishes a ready means for the members of the clast to get thoroughly acquainted, and the method of selecting partners makes it almost certain that every man and woman in the class will attend. Hut now that the example has been set why cannot the student body take the hint and model at least a few oi its functions on this general plan', it lias often been complained that even the Informal varsity dances giv en in tlu. gymnasium are inclined to be rather stiff affairs, that the crowd does not mingle, but on the contrary separates into groups and presents the appearance and the actuality of several parties going on in one room. Then, too, only about fifty per cent of the men and women of Oregon ever turn out on an occasion of this kind, which should offer the best op portunlt) for the Oregon students to come to know each other. It is per haps the only supplement to the scanty intercourse of tin* class room. Social life at institutions of learn ing is too often frowned on by those who view matters from the outside but as a matter of course, it Is ab swlutely necessary to tli.it knowledge of one another on which the strength of the stg4eni body, that is to say. the spirit of the college in reality, depends. This in its turn may seem trivial, but it is on the interest made possible for and displayed by the stu dent, in the affairs of the undergrad uate hod.', that the part of Ill's edu cation depends, so often spoken of as “not derived from books." Oregon et udents are not ac quainted as they should t)6. They have not the luiowledse of each other and the sympathy on which a firm union must he baaed, i' the same democratic effect can ho brougnt about for the student body by a lot tery dance as that shown at last year’s Senior party, then by ail means let’s try one for the four com bined classes of the University, is well as for that class which will soon cease to exist as an undergrauate body. ooooooooooooooooo o ANNOUNCEMENTS.

This has been done partly through the requests which have been made by Seniors who wish to have some practical ex perience in teaching before begin ning their teaching on the outside. Teaching in the High school has been done to a limited extent here some work in the grades, but there has been difficulty experienced in securing enough classes where the Seniors might teach. The Freshman class which meets under Professor Iiowe on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is seventy five in number. Professor Howe has divided this class into ten or twelve livislons and immediately after the regular class, the Senior teachers take charge of the practice class. The work of file Seniors is to teach the Freshman how to study. I)r. Schmidt stated that he thought that next year the same system would he instituted in the German depart ment, With the large classes in all 'he first year work, it is probable that next year will see it installed In more departments than English and German. Maud Mastlck, Marjorie Rankin, Olga l’oulson and Edith Clements are the Seniors who are teaching at present. SOPHOMORE “HOP” LAST DANCE BEFORE XMAS Decorations of Big Formal Will Have Distinct Holiday Effect ’ The dance committee has been working for the past two months and ill preliminary plans have been made for the dance Saturday night," stat 'd Chester Miller, chairman of the Sophomore hop committee, today.

"In the way of features, we have everal stunts 'that have never been ittioinpted here before. "Punch will lie served in sanitarv o '• cups, encased in neat nickel holders.

I I y. m r* VETERAN NEWSPAPER MAN | GIVES TALK TO STUDENTS - i Combined Journalism Classes Hear Edward Curran Talk About Papers Forty years of newspaper work have not lowered the enthusiasm of Edward Curran, editor of the Clarke County Sun, who talked to the com bined classes of journalism Friday afternoon 'Newspapermen, like poets, are born, not made,” Mr. Curran said. "A little germ, that exists in some people will make newspaper men out of them if they will hut try hard enough. But to develop this germ— to change the blood in the veins to printer’s ink—it is necessary to have preparation, equipment and charac ter.” The preparation can be obtained through colleges and by gettin; cheek to cheek with life, according to Mr. Curran. "Go where men cus: and fume and swear,” he advised "There you will see what men are like. Go into the mines or on ship hoard.” A newspaper man must have char acter, he said. Me must be just, hon est, and must have high purposes. He must have sympathy with all the | classes of life—and through this! sympathy he can gain Hundreds - f friends for himself and for his paper. He told how the newspaper sways opinion what, a responsibility it was for a man to attempt to run a news paper. Ho paid a tribute to the pro fession, how it was respected, and how every door was opened to a newspaper man. $1 200 would start a man as the owner of a newspaper, he said. Ev ery newspaperman who tries hard and conscientiously to succeed will be able to make from $100 to $200 a month from tHe small country pa per the kind that $1200 would buy.
