Mrs. G. T. Gerlinger Begins
Postal Card Campaign for
Hopes to Have Raised at Least
$25,000 by Commence
Four hundred thousand bricks must be
paid for if the Womens’ Memorial Gym
nasium building for the University is
to become a reality. That means
twenty-five cents a brick, Mrs. G. T.
Gerlinger, regent of the University of
Oregon, has figured. The women wish
to report at commencement at least
$115,000 raised, now they have just
passed the $13,000 mark. (
Twenty-five cents a brick. Why not
ask every student, alumni, and friend
of the University to buy bricks? Just
as many as they wish, or just as few.
Then all could have a part in the build
ing and it would indeed be a memorial
to every friend of the University.
A. J. Del/ay, professor of journalism,
printed and stamped 5000 return cards
for Mrs. Gerlinger and another 1000
for the extra demand. On one side of
the card the picture of the proposed
Women’s building is printed, on the
other side space is left for designating
the number of bricks the one returning
the card wishes to pay for. Any num
ber of cards can bo had upon applica
tion to Mrs. G. T. Gerlinger, Dallas,
and Young Men!
If a young man fancies the very ultimate in style, in
taste, in good appearance, he will be interested in the
splendid display we’re making of

At a Co-ed Swimming Match; Step Out!
Somebody said the truth when he
wrote “You Can’t Be A Friend to Ev

and swimming meets are being staged
by the women’s physical training depart- j
East Friday at the progr. in of dune- !

in a step-and-a-kalf manner, into the
crowded hall, were noticeably those who j
have been seen befriending the co-ed
dancers, swimmers, or track artists.
The question right now is—who’s a
friend of Marie Beach, Marian Coffey,
Evelyn Tregilgas, Jeannette Moss, Mar
