WORTH THINKING ABOUT
Alumni will doubtless have various |
plans for the good of the Association!
which they will wish to have referred ]
to committees next Saturday night'
at the preliminary meeting of the
Some problems which confront the
^plumni every year, and which have not
yet found satisfactory and permanent
What is the status of an associate
member? Although former students
have been admitted in a vague way
to the the privileges of the Associa
tion, their rights and limitations have
never been defined.
Can a list of former students be
compiled. Past catalogues of the
University show hundreds and thou
sands of non-graduates, most of them
loyal supporters of the institution.
Shall we make an attempt to get into
touch with these former students.
How fully will the University co-op
crate in such and undertaking?
What shall we do about alumni
publication ? Shall we continue an
^alumni page in the Emerald, shall we
attempt an official publication month
ly or quarterly, or are we better off
with no publication at all? We all
have our opinions on such a matter,
but only careful investigation by a
committee can put the matter into
such shape that we can act upon it
wisely and surely.
What shall we do to increase the
alumni sinking fund? Shall we use
interest from it for debate prizes, for
current expenses, or shall we add it
to the principal in order to increase
the fund to such proportions that it
will be of real value to the Associa
tion and to the University?
What can the alumni do to promote
the giving of scholarships? What is
the attitude of the Association toward
the proposed plan of a class memo
These are only a few of many im
^ portant questions that arise. If we
attempt to work them out fully in
the annual meeting, we shall get no
where. If they can be referred to in
terested committees for full inves
tigation and careful report, we may
have somewhat better success.
Through the courtesy of the officers
of the local branch of the University
of Oregon Alumnae, opportunity will
be given next Saturday evening for
a brief meeting of the State Alumni
President John C. Veatch authorizes
and calls this meeting and expects to
be present to preside over it.
The purpose of the meeting is to
take arrangements for commence
ent and to expedite the business
of the annual meeting by appoint
ment of committees.
Several committees appointed at the
last annual meeting will be asked for
Although the time will probably be
too short to permit extended discus
sion of general matters, this meeting
will afford an excellent opportunity
to refer such matters to committees
for investigation and report.
Any member living too far from
Eugene to attend this meeting may
be certain that any communication
sent to the Secretary for the consid
eration of the meeting will be brought
to its attention.
A Further reminder will go into the
Eugene papers. Let us try to be on
hand at 8:00 o’clock for this brief
business meeting, in order that it
may not in the least interfere with
the real business of the evening,
namely, the enjoyment of the good
time planned by the hostesses, the lo
cal branch of the University Alum

rent college year, but was obliged to
