broadening university scope
To those Who are so unfortunately
situnted that they cannot attend an in
stitution of higher learning, the advan
tages of education are not denied. The
tremendous growth of extension and cor
respondence divisions of the colleges
and university/of the United States tes
tifies to the increased scope of these in
stitutions ns factors in the sociological
development of the nation.
That provincialism of catering only to
those who are able to afford the time
and money in equipping themselves with
an education is hro»dening into a de
mocratization of higher education. Tin
alacrity with which the laymen arc co
operating in the movement for their ben
efit is also significant. While at present
a degree is not granted in extension and
correspondence work, yet the students
are accompliahing tin- same end and who
knows but what in time a degree will be
The old percentage that showed such
a scanty few receiving the benefits of
the educational schools of the United
States is indicative of nothing. Take
a percentage now based on a census of
resident, extension and correspondence
students and it would show a marvelous
leap, even with the growth of popula
What may then be gleaned from this
trend? Before answering let us see who
There are the teachers in public and
private schools who are desirous of im
proving their professional equipment,
men and women in non-professional oc

young men in clerical positions looking
forward to professional careers, women
engaged as clerks and stenographers
whose ambitious lead them to advanced
training, farmers upon whom the demand
is made for scientific training t<> enable
them to keep up with the times, pro
fessional men and women who would
keep in touch with advanced thought,
homemakers who want the stimulus of a
college or university atmosphere to
broaden their interests, mothers who
nre interested in the bringing up of
their children and women’s clubs that de

tackle their community problems with
some degree of preparation.
In other words, higher education is
entering into all walks of life. No
harm can result unless there is harm to

At the student council meeting of
Wednesday night the case of the orches

was ably set forth by Miss Winifred
Forbes. The Emerald regrets very
much that in reporting the meeting the
name of Miss Forbes was confused with

* COMMUNICATION [
In the student council’s meeting last
Wednesday night the University orches
tra asked for recognition as a student
activity and with the light to enjoy the
privileges already granted the band and
glee clubs. As a result of this sugges
tion a committee was appointed to
prepare an amendment to the consti
tution which was to be considered at the
next council meeting and then submitted
to l bo student body meeting in I>ecem
As a result of this action on the pn>rt
of the council the Km era hi printed in its
editorial eoluninR Thursday: “The Uni
versit.v orchestra now comes forward
with the plea for recognition as a stu
dent activity and the members to be re- I
warded for service with a gold block
To justify the orchestra’s stand it
is only necessary to consider the organ
ization itself ami the kind of work done
by it. The Kdiversity not only gives val
uable training to its members but is also
a medium through which the University
can advertise her merits to the state.
The places in the orchestra are secured
through competitive try-outs, making it
representative of the best musical talent
in the University.
Those students who express their
Oregon spirit in getting out and trying!
for places in campus activities and make j
good are entitled to recognition for their
hard and faithful work at the end of j
the year. If the student body desires
to encourage a high type of student on- |
deavor it will not hesitate to grant the
altogether reasonable request made by ■
the University orchestra.

DATE GIVEN FOR DANCE
Formal Concession for Student Body
Party Given by Fraternity.
One fraternity dance has been defin- j
itely surrendered to the student council, 1
to be used as a date for a student body
dance. It was given by Kappa Kappa
Gamma. Two more dates are in pros
This formal concessicn of dates is
necessary before more all-University
dances can be planned by the council,
since this was the means provided by
faculty action at the regular November ,
meeting. A student council committee •
composed of Harold Tregilgas, Leura
Jerard, and Floyd Westerfield met with
a faculty committee consisting of Colin
V. Dyment, Dean John Straub, Dean
Elizabeth Fox, Mrs. Mabel Holmes Par
dons. Upon the basis of an agreement
between the two committees the faculty
committee submitted a recommendation
to the November faculty meeting. The
report was passed without discussion.
The committee recommended that the
student Council be empowered to call |
upon the nineteen organizations offi- I
cially recognized by the faculty as having
the right to ask for dance dates, and ,
ask that some of their dates be relin- i
quished to the student body. The number j
of all-University dances given, however,
shall not exceed two a month. In case •
the date surrendered by any organiza
tion is not used by the student body, it
reverts to the organization to which it
The organizations which are granted j
dance dates are the various fraternities
and sororities, the dormitories, and the
BLIND STUDENT TEACHES
Leslie Blades, ’16, Meets Prof. Thacher’s
Classes in English Department.
Leslie Blades, a blind student of the
University, is teaching in the English
department, filling the vacancy caused
by the sickness of Professor Thacher.
Mr. Thacher has been unable to meet
his classes for the past week on account
of an attack of pneumonia.
Blades seems to have no great diffi
culty in teaching the classes and culling
the roll. He uses the raised letter
system for the few notes and the neces
sary class roll.
