Oregon is proud to be the alma mater of a corps of newspaper women who sro filling responsible positions in dPf-* ferent journalistic lines. Journalism is becoming more and more popular ns a profession for women, and the war has made them necessary to that profes sion. It has been to them an oppor tunity not only to get a good position but to make good in such a position and thereby overcome the antipathy to some editors. Every yeur the school of journalism increases the number of women in ac tive journalistic work, and keeps track of their work. That they are making good is apparent from the fact that they hold their positions; and the steady rise of the majority to more responsible and better paid positions gives evidence of the dynamic force and push which, added to ability and conscious work, makes the successful journalist. Among Oregon's contributions to newspapordoni are Lucile Saunders, tclogro’di editor, of the Oregon States man, formerly reporter on the Bend Bulletin; ('lytic Hall, reporter on the Pendleton East Oregonian formerly with the Eugene Guard; Louis Allen and Peggy Driver, reporters on the Tacoma Ledger; Nellie Hemenway, reporter on the Cottage Grove Sentinel; Madge Pulton, reporter on the Morning As turian; and Echo Zalil, feature writer for the Portland News and formerly with the Seattle Star. Former Oregon students are also represented among the society editors: Nonna Hendricks of the Eugene Reg ister, Margaret Spangler of the Eugene Guard, Mignon Allen of the Astoria Budget, Beatrice Locke of the Specta tor, and Claire Raley of the Pendleton East Oregonian until recently of the Pendleton Mail-Tribune. Another Oregon graduate who is re flecting credit upon the University is Louise Bryant. At present she is writ* mg special signed articles from Russia for the Portland Oregonian. Pica For Trained Women. ‘(tivc us trained women," plead the business men daily -deprived of men who have been filliutC positions of trust un der them. And more they are saying, "We prefer trained women with college educations.” They feel that these are the broad minded women who can best aid them in these troublesome times. Are we as I'niversity women ready to answer this eall for trained worker*? We feel deep down in our hearts that rertainly every college woman should be. llow useless and inadequate must any woman feel who can think of spend ing the summer idly loafing. If she is not already prepared so that she may be putting her training to practice in every possible way this summer, she should spend her available time in learn ing to he proficient in something of practical value so that she may begin to do her share in relieving the criti :ai situations in the business world which will follow during the war and during the vital reconstruction period. The i'niversity is outlining such prac tical courses for women to take here next year. Among them, are the new courses being planned by the school of ommerci. as Heap U. W. Morton has just announced. If the women are at all interested in doing their part, and we feel that they are, they will find it will not be difficult to train themselves thoroughly so that seriously and whole-heartedly they may. with their fellow students, answer the gill to sen ice for their country. Women’s Welcome To R. 0. T. C. \nd how do we feel about having ft. ti T. recognition? We oongratu Me the University on having it at iast particularly congratulate the men who are to go to the Presidio as the first official representatives of the I ni auve accomplished through their train ing uide.r Lh uLw^xii-Colynel John Leador and we feel sure will prove a credit to him and to the University. There ore others who are anxious to go, hut they are§itoo young, for the age limit is 20 years and 9 months. Afany of them seem to be chafing un der the restraint which keeps them here, but they must remember that there will be other camps and that there will be room for them later. To those who are leaving, we wish •Godspeed. They are the pick of those of the University battalion who could meet the requirements. *Thcy will de monstrate, we know, what they really .Van do. Oregon and Oregon’s women I feel pi oud that they have such men to send. Theta Sigma Phi Holds Convention. The first national convention of Thetn Sigma Phi wur held in Lawrence, Kan sas at the University of Kansas, on April 25, 20, and 27 with Epsilon chap ter ns hostess. I>ue to the war and the departure of so many newspaper men for the front, women are having their chance to make good in the newspaper world and they have taken their opportunity in both hands and are succeeding better than even they themselves had dared to hope. They are taking the places of the men naturally aud easily. rl his state of affairs will not' end with the close of the war. Women will not be willing jto step out of the places they have usurped. They will look upon the newspaper field as be hyiging to them, because it is worth while work they can do well. The national convention hold recent ly afforded the opportunity of a closer union of newspaper women throughout the country. Representatives from tho various chapters met, became acquain ted and exchanged experiences. Among other things they put out an edition of the University Daily Kansan during the convention and visited the offices of the Star, Journal and l’ost on their trip to Kansas City.
