THE UNIVERSITY PLATOON
Is being raised by the
UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
to reinforce the 196th Western Universities Battalion of
Canada, whose members have proved their heroism on the
Somme, at Vimy Ridge and at Fresnoy. The ranks of Can
adian students are' now almost depleted of their fighting men.
AMERICANS joining Canadian units enjoy exactly the
j same rights as Canadians in the matter of pay, pensions, sep
aration allowances, promotions and honors. Men of the uni
versities, schools and colleges, who have no prospect of get
ting to the front with their own regiments in time to strike
their blow for democracy and freedom, ♦would be welcomed
into the University Platoon. They would enjoy the congenial
! companionship of educated men, who are willing to make sac
rifices and fight for principles. No commissions are granted
now in the Canadian army except to men who have made good
on the field of battle. But members of the platoon will attend
officers' training schools or follow other specialized courses at
the battalion base at Branshott, England. Thus they will be
qualified for such appointments as their conduct under fire
THE UNIVERSITY PLATOON should appeal especially
to BRITISH and CANADIANS now resident in the United
As these reinforcements are preparing to go overseas
about the end of this month of May, applications should be
made by mail to THE COMMANDING OFFICER, 196th RE

The University library is starting to
build up a small philosophical library
which shall include the standard editions
of the works of the world’s great phi
losophers. Several important sets of
philosophical works were received this
week from second-hand shops in Lon
don. The library has been sending out
lists prepared by Dr. George Rebec of
the books desired and the London firms

dating bach as far as 1801. One of the
most important sets is the Berlin edition
of 1S31 of Aristotle’s complete works,
printed in Greek, in 11 volumes. This
is considered the most authoritative edi
tion of Aristotle.
Other new sets are Descartes’ Works
in the edition of 1824 in 11 volumes; St.
Augustine’s in the 15 volume coition of
1838, printed in Latin; Dugall Stewart,
an 11 volume edition edited by Sir Wil

volumes edition by J. H. Fichte; sets
of Hegel and John Locke. Other philos

Socrates; Putarch’s Moires edited by
Goodwin in five volumes; John Locke’s
ten volume set of 1801; Thomas Hobbes’
in English and Latin; Kant’s Cammtlichie
Werke edited by Kartenstein; and
Hegel’s Werke of nineteen volumes.
‘“These standard editions of philoso
phical works,” says M. H. Douglass, li
brarian, ‘‘are indispensable for advanced
work ki philosophy, and although they
are by no means ‘popular’ books, they are
necessary for some of l)r. Rebec's stu

Miss Shipman and Mr. Russell are

scenes and campus activities illustrated
an address given at the Oakland high
school by the principal, Anthony Jaure

whole program,” says the report. “The
scenes showing the boys drilling out on
the field brought down the house.”
At Roseburg and Albany, committees

Alumni at Oregon City observed the
occasion by the formation of a perma
nent alumni organization. College songs
were sung and college memories revived
by the forty graduates and former stu
dents who met at the commercial club.
Stereopticon views of the campus, pic
tures of football games and other in
teresting features of college life were
shown. A big University of Oregon pic

Consolidation of the Portland alumni
and alumnae associations is to be under
taken as a result of the joint meeting
of both organizations held in the Mult
nomah hotel. The joint meeting was
in the form of a luncheon. Aid for the
woman’s building at the University was
urged by Mrs. E. P. Geary, president of
the Portland alumnae and Mrs. Alice
Benson Beach. Others present agreed
to co-operate in efforts to raise the nec
essary fund at the earliest possible mo
ment. The holding of monthly meetings
by the consolidated alumni organizations
is likely to result from the reunion held
last Friday, according to the report made
to Mr. Onthank.
Definite rules of government were
adopted by the old Oregon students of

favorable. In Hood River an Alumni
