OREGON’S NEW POSITION
During the last two years Oregon has
received honors and earned a reputation
outside its own state as no other uni
versity in the west. This year Oregon
has grown to u new position among
western educational institutions.
Much of the credit goes to the sever
al Oregon instructors, Chemists, and re
search workers who have turned down
larger salaries from eastern schools to
continue their work at Oregon because
they like this I'niversity and its spirit
u student, body and faculty.
Oregon’s new standing in American
I'oliege athletcis also is now recognized.
A foundation for this was gradually
built at Oregon by continually success
ful football teams under Bezdck and
the great track men placed in th coast
conferences for Oregon by “Bill" Hay
ward with the result that Oregon was
represented at the last Olympic games
with a representation above th average
for a western I’niversity. Before that
time eastern men had not thought of
tlie westerns us competitors. When
Oregon followed this gradually built
reputation by the defeat of Pennsylvan
ia’s winning teutu from the east at. Pasa
dena, lemon yellow fame spread and the
’‘lemon yellow" peril was no longer eon
firmed to coast conferences.
This year, however, conditions in Uni
versity life have changed. Oregon is
still holding her now niche in American
University life. ■

WHY UQ TO COLLEGE?
Why dhl you come to Oregon? To
get married? To study Military Tactiea?
To have a good time? To learn how to
make a big income? Or are you after
You won’t be disappointed if you are
after any of these, but there are some
other things to remmber. The citizens
of Oregon made possible your oppor
tunity and demand useful men and wo
men from the University. To be a real- j
ly good citizen it is ncessary to be more j
than a .highly trained, efficient work- I
man. A man or woman is not fully de
veloped until he has lenrnfed through
contact with other pople, what sympathy
means, until he can see the other fel
low’s view point.
If you do not learn to mix at college
your chances later will be greatly dimin
ished. The four years at college arc
four years of living. The standards set
at college will be held through life.
To deepen sympathy is to improve
judgment. With an increase of knowl
edge comes the realization of the worth

TO WE MHOS
Colonel Leader Must Have
Trench Material Next
Red Cross work in the form of mak
ing sand hags may he undertaken by Uni
versity women, if a suggestion made by
Colonel John Leader to a meeting ut'
the executive committee of Woman’s
league held Wednesday is carried out.
Because the V. W. C. A. bungalow is in
use as a gymnasium for the women, reg
ular Red Cross work has been post
poned until Inter, although work in or
ganization has already been started by
Bernice Spencer, chairman.
The sand bags are needed for building
trenches, said Colonel Leader, who de
clared that t!ie women of the University
would be performing a real patriotic duty
in making the bags. No definite decision
has yet been reached in regard to this I
work. Two hours of Red Cross work
each week for each woman in the Uni
versity was decided upon by the execu
tive committee as its recommendation.
All-Girl Dance Planned.
Plans lor the spons >r-sponsee dance,
given annually for the freshmen women,
were made and a dance will be given as
soon as possible after the ban is lifted on
public gatherings, according to Dorothy
plegal. president of Woman’s League.
Organizations of Triple “11” and Triple
"C” were done away for this year by
the executive committee, after the decis
ion that these organizations never paid
for themselves in former years and sen - ;
ed poorly the purpose for which they ;
were formed, furnishing a social organi
zation for sophomore and junior women.
