A WAY OUT
Perhaps members of the University
of Oregon faculty have found the best
palliative for the evils of the present
system of final examinations which
ever will be found. It is the simple
alternative of requiring in lieu of the
examination a long paper or thesis
on some phase or phases of the semes
The two counts on which the final
examinations are most often de
nounced by both students and instruc
* tors are these: The undue strain they
impose on the students, and their in
effectuality as a criterion of the stu
dents’ knowledge. Roth these faults
are eradicated, we believe, by the new
Such a thesis is not necessarily
easier than an examination, so far as
the amount of work represented is
concerned. Rather, it admits of
greater and more intelligent effort
on the part of the student, but with a
saving of the energy now expended in
worrying and useless cramming.
A long theme, planned systematical
ly and worked out calmly and pains
takingly, should provide an acid test
of the student’s ability. When com
pleted, it will be an accomplishment
worth while—provided the instructor
has been sufficiently fastidious in his
exactions. This is more than can be
said of the result of the usual two
hours’ travail over a blue-book. The
latter is certain to be misrepresent
ative in every way of the best of
which the student is capable; in sub
ject matter, in composition and in
Probably there are courses in which
the instructor will find it impossible
to devise a form of thesis from which
he can appraise the work of his stu
dents. However, in most of the cours
es offered here, the plan seems prac
ticable. Wo hope to see it developed
and applied with increasing success in

* SPURTS *
Whitman and the Multnomah Club
have contracted for two football games
to be played next fall. The two teams
used to meet quite regularly, but no
game has been played since M. A. A.
C. won in 1908 by a score of 11 to 5.
Several of the Northwest’s coaches
figure that their teams will have a
very prominent finger in the gravy
when the conference championship pie
is opened at O. A. C. next Friday.
Coach Archie Hahn will bring down
a fairly balanced team which he ex
pects to do things. Thompson, a
sprinter, is counted on by Hahn to
count strongly in the sprints.
Vere Windnagle, the little runner who
did such great things for Oregon in
the spring of 1913, ran second to Ted
Meredith, world’s record holder, in a
dual meet between Cornell and Penn
sylvania, recently held at Ithica. Mer
edith is perhaps the greatest middle
distance man who ever ran.

Arthur Duffy, one of the old timers
in the sprinting game, says: “I would

♦ COMMUNICATION *
ARE WE BEING SHOWN UP AT
(Following is an extract from a per
sonal letter written by one of the
University of Oregon guides at the
Upon my arrival in the Oregon
Building, 1 immediately looked around
to see the University exhibit. To my
great surprise and disappointment, 1
found only a stand such as is used
in railroad stations to show scenery
along the line. This has a few pic
tures of the campus, showing build
ings, rose hedges, and "Hello Lane,"
etc. The thing has not been elec
trically connected, but we shall soon
see about that. On the other hand,
O. A. C. is very well represented. On
the second floor the whole northwest
corner is devoted to O. A. C. trans
parent pictures. These pictures are
not used to display campus scenes
only, but show work in all depart
ments and are surely a fine exhibit,
one any college would be proud of,
In the reception room on the first
floor a couple of signs tell the visitor
that all the furniture in the room
: has been made b O. A. C. students,
and it is excelelnt furniture.
In the southeast second floor cor
ner, the O. A. C. girls serve luncheons
from 12 to 2 every day. amt they are
known all over the grounds for qual
ity. People fight for seats every
noon, and O. A. C. has certainly been
made famous through the luncheons
alone. The 0. A. C. fellows all wear
their uniforms and there is a general
O. A. C. atmosphere. The college
has done itself proud, while Oregon
has nothing to show that sue has an
excuse for existence.
Every time a visitor asks me if I
am from 0. A. C., I want to fight,
and I don’t know what I’d do if some
one asked me to see the University
There is still nearly a month before
college will be out, and the heavy
crowds will not come until then, so,
if something is done immediately, we
still have time to make a respectable
showing. You know it hurts an Or
egon fellow’s pride to see a dinky
bunch of colored plates along side of
all this O. A. C. display, and you can
bet that if some action is taken to
ward making a showing here, you will
find no more enthusiastic supporters
than the Oregon fellows here on the
job. I shall be here for three weeks
more, and maybe a little longer, and
I hope to see something started.
O. A. C. gets the “Barometer” here
regularly and have a copy of the “Or
ange” at hand to enthuse prospective
students. If Oregon needs anything,
it needs publicity of a kind that will
make the public realize that we have
something beside a good time to show
for our University courses. An ex
hibit giving us an excuse for existence
is what we need here, and not a few
