More Than Half of Mew Stu
; dents on Campus This
Year Are Women.
Many Picking Subjects Con
; nected With Bread and
Butter—No Orientals.
Registration of resident students in the
T'niversity for the second semester now
totals 1034, passing the thousand murk
for the first time in the history of the
institution. This figure, given out by
Registrar A. It. Tiffany represents an
increase of 29 per cent, as compared
with last year’s gain.
(More than half me new students are
women. Their most popular choice of
major subjects is . inglish Literature.
Among the men there is a notable
tendency toward commercial subjects.
The school of commerce lias more stu
dents entering than any other depart
ment. The professors attribute this to
its close connection with “bread and
butter.” “The boys can cash in on it
sooner than any other and in these days
it’s money that counts,” stated Professor
(}. R.McAuslan.
Nearby colleges have lost some of
their students to Oregon this year.
About a dozen have come from Oregon
Agricultural College, and the Universi
ties of Washington and California. One
man who graduated at Seattle is a can
didate for a master’s degree here, lie
sides these there are close to 50 of the
older undergraduate students returning
after an absence to complete their
courses. The usual number of specials,
seven or eight, also have registered.
One remarkable fact about this semes
ter’s attendance is that there are no
students ... the Orient. Usually there
is a Filipino, Japanese, or Hindu student
but with the departure of Kulogio A.
(iorospe Wednesday, none remains. (5or

had intended eontinueing his studies
longer until a telegram received a few
days ago changed bis • plans. lie has
gone to Sa,i Francisco to take the posi
tion of clerk in the Phillipine office
there. He will probably return next
fall. One of the new students, Julius
Frahm from Richmond, Ore., is origi
nally from Reudsbirg, Hcrmany, where
his mother now lives. Two of his
brothers, one a surgeon, have just lost
their lives in the Kuropean war. Frahm
has been in this country four years,

If you want to go to the kind of a school
Like the kind of a school you like,
You needn’t slip your clothes in your grip,
And start on a long, long hike.
You’ll only find what you left behind,
For there’s nothing that’s really new.
It’s a knock at your self when you knock your school,
It isn’t your school—It’s You!
Real schools are not made by students afraid
Lest somebody else gets ahead.
When everybody works and nobody shirks,
You can raise a school from the dead.
And if while you work instead of the shirk
And your neighbor will do so, too,
Your school will be what you want it to be—
It isn’t your school—its YOU!

note that one of the freshmen women

showing no grades under 95 during her
entire term there. He predicts another

The wrestling teams of the coast have
hem reduced to five men this year by
the abolishment of the heavy-weight class
and the re adjusting of other weights.
The heaviest class now is 105. The
change was made on account of most of
the heavy wrestlers being out for foot

training on the mat.
The classes as they will be this year

story critic of America, published his ■
annual report of the American short j
story in the Iloston Transcript a few
days ago. Later it will appear in book
form. He reported on all the stories
published in the best magazine’s in lOlti.
making a list of the boot stories out of l
the 2700 that he had read. Seventy-fee !
authors of stories on the list were placed
on his roll of honor, as contributing
work of permanent literary value.
Mr. Marshall's “The Missing Seven
teen’’ which appeared in the Saturday
Evening I’ost last May was one of th >
seven stories from the 1010 issues of
that magazine to be given places on the
roll of honor. Two of the other six
honored stories were by Norman Dun
can, and one each by Basil King, Irvin ,
S. Cobh, Melville D. I’ost. and Katherine
Mr. O’Rrien classifies his stories into
four groups; first, those hardly deserv
ing publication, second stories distin
guished by cither good technique or sub
stance, third, very distinguished stories
containing both of these qualities, and
lastly, a short list of stories of perma
nent literary value. "The Missing Seven
teen’’ was on the latter list.
Among other stories of Mi-. Marshall's

“It’s ;’ust one durn thing after an

as he emptied his spare change on the
palm cf a greedy collector in Johnson
“All they think a fellow has money
for here is to get rid of it.”
One of the most pleasant surprises
prepared for the students was an inno
cent appearing little card, a gift from the
registrar's office announcing that “Rec
ords of the Library show that you have
fines there on account of books not re
turned on time amounting to blank
blank debars. The rules of the Board
■ >f Regents require that all amounts due
the University must he paid before
grades can be given out.”
.So it happens that the treasury had
increased its funds by $35 before noon
and the pennies were still coming in.
The largest individual fine recorded
was $4.S0 while the smallest was eight
cents. M H. Douglass, head librarian,
advises that “a stitch in time often saves
niue” and believes that if the average
student were not so careless in disre
garding notices sent out at frequent in
tervals he would be a great deal richer
and would not be delayed in getting his
grade card by so trivial a matter as eight

hear whether you flunked and then only
had a bill handed you.
