cattle had begun before the war, he says.

FIGHT OR WOiiti
Now, as never before in history, America is asking of her sons and daughters loyal,
wholehearted and efficient service. Whether on the battlefield or in the activities behind
the lines which supply the strength from which our armies draw, we must achieve the last
ounce of results. The fighting machine must be a marvel of efficiency; the war and navy
departments want college men for positions of leadership. Production of everything
needed for both peace and war must be speeded up if this nation is to win its fight for
democracy. Both peace and war work arc crying out for trained efficiency.
THE UNIVERSITY PREPARES YOU FOR EITHER.
For the men, military drill and courses in military science arc offered, under the direct
tion of Col. \Y. H. C. Bowen, U. S. Army, retired. All the University science courses have
been adapted as far as possible toward military ends. They are practical courses, mean
ing a lot of hard study, but they are well worth it. 4
Promotion either in civil or military life falls most largely to the college-trained man.
For the women, special attention is to be given next term to the Domestic Science
courses. Other lines of work also are being strengthened, but special emphasis is now
placed on preparation for efficient solution of home problems—and this, in the aggre
gate, means much to the nation. j
NOW IS THE TIME TO CO TO COLLEGE.
National authorities and army officers, from President Wilson and Secretary Baker
down, arc united in urging young men to remain in college until the nation calls them in
dividually to service. What they want is Trained Service, and not mere numbers of the
unskilled. Students in technical courses are especially requested to follow this course.
President Wilson says: "1 would particularly urge upon the young people who are leav
ing our high schools that as many of them as can do so avail themselves this year of the
opportunities offered by the colleges and technical schools, to the end that the country
may not lack an adequate supply of trained men and women.”
The University of Oregon is better equipped this year than ever before. Winter term
opens January 2. __
