Freshman Co-ed, Happy in Nature Study j
Sets University Mark in Library Reading
(By Lucile Saunders)
Literally bubbling over with the joy
of living is Opal Whitely, a University
freshman from Cottage Grove, for Opal
:s a student of life, a natural scient
ist. you call her. She believes every
moment on this earth is too precious to
waste: that’s why she slips into the li
brary between classes and reads five or
ten pages of a book while others are
standing on the steps or leaning over the
radiator gossiping. So it happens that
she has the highest rending record of any
student the University has kept account
Last semester little Miss Whitely had
perused 10,5811 pages of outside reading
when she completed her ethics course
under Dean Elizabeth Fox. Her average
of 520 pages a week consisted of natural
science, eugenics, biography, the Bible,
and art.
Outside of that she carried a full UnL
versify course, some subjects at the
Bible university, research work on her
own initiative, and a correspondence fre
(inently amounting to thirty letters a day
written as a part of her duties as state
superintendent of the Junior Christian
Endeavor. Last year she sent out 1(500
letters of advice on Endeavor business
and travelled 2000 miles in the state.
Under her supervision are the 3400 child
ren of eight different denominations of
churches interested in the work.
Miss Whitely’s life ambition is to
write nature study books for children,
which, shi- says will appeal to the child
so much that he will get the same enjoy
ment from reading them that she gets out
of till' writing. To this end she is bend
ing ail her efforts and laying what she
terms the “foundations”. In the sum
mer she travels in the state at the re
quest of the school children from all over
and lectures. Through this occupation,
most pleasing to her, she earns her way
through school.
At the age of eleven when living among
the lumber camps of the Row river valley
she first began teaching the children the
wonders of nature. Every year she did
this, her classes becoming so popular
that after children had moved away they
would write and let her hear of the new
things they had discovered which she
might not have seen. To this day she
hears from them from New York and
the Middle west, California. Washington,
and Oregon. Her lectures are consider
ed so valuable that she expects to do
extension work for the University in the
near future.
Though very much a student. Miss
Whitely is a staunch believer in the pol
icy of “early to bed, early to rise”. Her
day begins at 5 o’clock in the morning
when she finds it most easy to study.
Long walks and days in the fields take
another portion of her time. She is an
ardent lover of the country and wishes
always to be near her beloved rocks and
lichens, and mosses, and birds and
flowers. She spent three years study
ing the butterfly before she felt that she
understood his life and the friendship of
a bird is to be as highly prized as that
with a person. Out-of-doors is just like
an entertaining book to her. She has a
most pleasing personality. Hardly tall
er than the children of whom she is so
fond, her being fairly effervesces a joy
in living. She always has an inviting
smile for her acquaintances and en
deavors to share her joys with everyone.
During her spare moments one is sure
to see her in some odd corner of the li
brary lost among books. “You have no
idea how many interesting things you
can learn in a few minutes if you only
concentrate your mind.” she said. “The
things that come hardest to you are
most worth while. I never study ofr
grades and I don’t get the best but they
are nearlys just what I wanted in each
hero ms I have receiv 'd n first unci last
ing impression.”
Oregon Co-eds Taken Into Camp at Se
attle by Unanimous Decision.
The University of Washington co-ed
debating team defeated the Oregon team
in the debate held at Mean.v Hall, Se
attle, Thursday night. The judges’ decis
ion was unanimously in favor of the
northern University. The question was
' Resolved, that the United States should
adopt an amendment to the constitution
which would insure equal suffrage to
both men and women in all states of the
union,” Oregon upheld the negative.
The Washington team was made up
of the following girls: Ruth Tewinkle,
Helen Bennett and Margaret Desmond,
while the University of Oregon was rep
resented by Vivian Kellems, Amy Carson
and Roberta Schuebel. With the excep
tion of Miss Kellems, who was in the
state debate with O. A. C., the Oregon
girds were inexperienced. Both Miss Te
v inkle and Miss Bennett of Washington
have taken part in interseholastie de
bate for three years, and Miss Desmond
was on the varsity team last year.
This is the first co-ed debate in which
Oregon has participated.
Dean Elizabeth Fox accompanied the
girls on their trip to Seattle and after
tin debate, she was entertained with the
Oregon team by the Washington Tolo
i lub. an upper class honorary society.
The club gave the visiting team a recep
tion in the Home Economics hall and a
banquet at the Seattle hotel later in the
The judges of the contest were: George
Nash, president of Bellingham State
Normal, Mrs. Alvnh U. Carr, of Seattle,
and Thomas R. Cole, assistant super- .
intendent of the Seattle Schools.

This information was sent President
Campbell by Thomas Ewing, Commis
Mr. Ewing says in his letter { “every
man who has qualified during the last
two years, has been offered an appoint
ment.” The examination is on granting
of patents for inventions. Positions are
largely filled from Universities and col
leges giving engineering and other prac
tical branches of science.
A fine chance is offered to train for
law through investigation of records.
There are several law colleges in Wash*
ington with hours arranged for accom
odations of government employees. Mr.
Ewing continues in his letter, "Unfor
tunately for us our workers constantly
are leaving us to carry on their law

Some of the college and business men
of Oberlin, Ohio, are getting their shoes
shined as many as four and five times
a day. It isn’t because the streets are
exceptionally muddy or that they are go- ]
ing to use their shoes as mirrors. The
plain fact of the case is that there are
women bootblacks in the college town,
lit is part of the Oberlin College Woman’s
League finance campaign to raise $75,
000 in three years for a new women’s
dormitory building. Eight women of the
Dascomb Dormitory are the shiners, and
they are rapidly adopting the “light or
dark polish, sir,” air of their male com
petitors in business.
The representatives of the Greek fra
ternities at the University of Oklahoma
claim the horseplay that has hitherto
prevailed in the initiations of the fratern
ities is being rapidly abandoned. The
tasks used to be that the initiates should
put on dress suits and do their fraternity
washing in the front yard, or to step on
the campus dolled up like an end man in
a minstrel.
