LIBM HIS RELICS
0 Old Copy of “TheCitizen,” First^Flag
Made in Oregon, and Ancient
Books Among Articles
An old newspaper, the first flag
made in Oregon, a piece of the Confed-|
erate flag that waved over the capitol
at Richmond for four years, a Con
federate $10 note, a Lincoln gavel,
and some ancient books, compose the
list of relics in the University Libra
The old newspaper is a copy of the
last wall-paper edition of The Citizen,
issued at Vicksburg, Mississippi, in
July, 1863. The Confederates had used
all their paper and were forced to
print The Citizen on wall paper. On
July 2, 1863, the last issue of this
paper went to press, but before the
printing had been finished, Grant had
captured the city. There is a little
note in the lower right hand corner
of the paper dated July 4, 1863, ap
parenetly written by the Union sol
diers, saying that no more would The
Citizen appear on wall-paper, and that
the inhabitants of Vicksburg would
no longer have to eat rats.
The gavel is made from a tree that
Abraham Lincoln planted while a boy,
and contains the names of all the
Presidents since Lincoln until McKin
ley. The tree from which the gavel
was made was cut down upon the
death of Lincoln
A Union flag, which was made by
Mrs. A. I. Beebe when she was a lit
tle girl, and presented by her to the
Library, is thought to be the first
flag in the State of Oregon. It was
made on the east side of the Cascade
mountains during the early days. The.
flag is kept in the Library vault in
There are several old volumes of
hooks on the relic shelf that date back
to *the time of Shakespeare. The old
manuscripts are all written in Greek
and Latin and are bound in heavy pa
per of large size. The age of the
books is easily shown by the musty
and yellow appearance of the -covers
and tho pages.

Leo Hendricks: “The main argu
ment for the amendment is that it
will catch the dead-beats. It isn't
right that only a few should support
class activities. Finances will be on
such a firm basis that any class can
handle its Oregana without difficulty."
William Holt: “I’m strongly in fa
vor of the amendment. It will make
it easier on both the treasurer and on
the class itself, because they will get
the money, when before they did not.
It. will be an injustice to no one. As
it now is those who do not pay arc
better able than those who do. Last
but not least, there will be no debts
left over for the next class to pay."
Merlin Hatley: “Fine amendment
should have been here in the past.
There now exists an injustice to a con
tain portion of the students. The rest
leave the burden to the more willing.
It will also assure a more systematic
method of book-keeping. The das.
advisory board will be a line thing.”
Elton Loucks: “The amendment is
fair to everyone- Now about two
thirds are paying for the whole thing,
while the rest are receiving the same
benefits. Students have as much
money at the first of the year as they
do at any time, and the payment of
all fees at once will save a lot of
clerical work. An accurate budget can
be drawn up because the resources will
be definitely known.”
Anthony Jaureguy: “It is the only
way to place the class finances on a
working basis. All treasurers are

Assistant Cataloguer and Desk As-!
sistants Will be Employed

working force in the library next year
is an assurance, according to Mr.;
Douglass. Miss Martha Spafford, at
present engaged in the Vermont Ag-|
ricultural College library, has been
selected to work with Miss Barker as
Assistant Cataloguer, and will begin i
work in July
Then, too, there are to be new as
sistants at the desk, where at pres
ent help is most needed. These have
not yet been chosen, but will be on
hand when the fall term begins.
Librarian Douglass, accompanied by
Miss Barker, Miss Potter and Mrs.
McClain, attended a meeting of the |
Pacific Northwest Library Associa-j
tion in Salem yesterday. On leaving;
Salem, Mr. Douglass will journey to j
San Francisco to view the Exposition,!
and to be present at a convention of
the American Library Association.
From Calfornia, he will go to Iowa
to take part in a class reunion at his
old college, Grinnell. He is expected
back on the fourth or fifth of July.
Students at the University of Mich

"OMAR. THE TEN I'M Alv EK"
Louise Grassier, who plays the lead
ing role in support of Guy Hates Post
in “Omar, the Tentinaker," coming
shortly to the Eugene Theatre for a
return engagement of one night, por
trays both youth and maturity. In
the first part of the play she enacts
the youthful sweetheart, Shireen, of
the belovvr poet, Omar Khayyam, in
terpreted by Mr. Post. Hut the true1
calibre of her acting is best attested
in later scenes. Torn from her lover,
Shireen is married to the Shah and
later cast off by him to die in the des
ert. From this plight she is resent'd
by murdering marauders who force her
to join their °band. Thus for many
years the erstwhile Shireen, now
known as the Evil Hanou, is forced to
roam the deserts and participate, si
lently at least, in many atrocities
Thus it will be seen that while Miss
Grassier portrays, during the earlier
passages of the play, a sweet, lovable
young girl, she later has to character
ize a full-fledged adventuress. No
small test of histrionic virtuosity. j
