University Women In Newspaper Work.
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

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.

I>ue to the war and the departure
of so many newspaper men for the

rl his state of affairs will not' end
with the close of the war. Women
will not be willing jto step out of the
