| Gilbert Enjoys Mis Work as Censor
Oregon Man Busy in Paris; Meets Colin V. Dyment and Makes
Acquaintance of Wallace Irwin.
John Do Witt Gilbert, ex-’IS, now in
the office of the base censor in I’aris,
writes Professor Eric W. Allen, dean of
the .£ jvnrniiiicia, of g-.-jce of the
queer mistakes he finds in the ."00 let
ters lie reads daily. The letter is dated
Paris, September (i. Gilbert was a major
in the school of journalism.
The letter follows in part:
“I am now in the office of the Base
Censor arid am one of those brutal bc
i n p's who are supposed to gloat and
glory in others’ letters. I was sent here
July I and have been hard at work,
reading ah ut 300 letters a day.
"The work is very interesting and a
man gets used to being hard-hearted and
close-mouthed. I have read every sort of
biter, from humorous to ones to wring
a heart. I have copied one or two that
will he wonders in the ‘apres de guerre’
days. Here are a few inis-spellings, rn
.rer than any the journalism classes ever
produced, I’ll warrant; blighter, later;
cinehered, censored; seeerettes, secrets;
enohoreiier, insurance; exzempion, ex
emption; znrro, zero; phine, field; pa
troeatie, patriotic; courts, carts; afull,
awful; hubbet, habit; regrette, regret;
bnsseneer, base censor; Seten, sitting;
burruuges, barrages; konick, cognac;
bwissy, busy; reeond, reckoned; knock
lation, innoculntion; nolage, knowledge;
nner,". answer; orte, ought. So it goes.
"Stars and Stripes” Sent Over.
"I have sent you a copy or two of the
Stars and Stripes and I have today sub
scribed to it for a jenr, the1 copies to
hi' mulled to the school of journalism as
just a little evidence that I have not
forgotten the many things I gained in
the luiM iiunt of McClure hull. If the war
is still in progress when the subscription
runs out, I will he glad to continue it.
“One evening perhaps a week after
getting your letter, I glanced at the
register in the University Union and
saw, in green ink, the stumpy hieroglyph
ics that, 1 have long associated with,
C. V. D. (Colin V. Dyment). 1 lost no
lime In hunting him up and 1 need not
say that we had a joyous reunion. T
really believe he smiled when I clapped
my hand on his shoulder. T’m not posi
tive, but 1 think he did. Our work con
flicted a good deal with our spare time,
but we managed to see a good deni of
each other before he was sent away as
Red Cross representative of the Lewis

had a fine evening with her. She is writ
ing u book for tln> Y. \V. and is at pres
ent away from Paris.
Many Oroijon Men Thero.
"Of course the largest bunch of Ore
gon men I have seen were with my old
outfit, which must now be ready for the
line, but in knocking about I have seen
Alex Bowen. Bob Atkinson, Jimmie Don
ald, and have been in touch with several
“One of the friendships I have made
and which I value is that of Wallace Ir
win, with whom I regularly have dinner
every fortnight in a rare old restaurant
in the Latin Quarter. He is a remark
ably interesting man.
“I have met the stuff of the New York
Herald and have inspected their plant.
I am enclosing a copy of the paper. You
can judge it for yourself. Irwin says,
‘The Herald will always come out until
the scissors break.’ They have a nice
plant and the staff all have nice jobs, as
it takes four men and an editor, besides
the wire man to clip and translate four
pages full. On the point of cleanliness,
the Herald is the ranking plant of any
I have seen. The type shines like new
and the forms appear slver plated.
“l!i* Rure that I urn not neglecting my
splendid opportunity to see Paris. It is
indeed a priceless one, and I am already
familiar with all parts of the city and
tin* most important of the environs. To
day I am going to Fontninbleau.
Paris Finest of Cities.
“I had always placed Paris as the
city of all the world I wanted most to
see. I have seen it and I have certainly
not been disappointed. I have not seen
all the world, but I cannot believe that
there is a finer city in the world. I hud
rend considerable of Paris, but all the
books in all the world would leave one
without real appreciation of one spring
ing buttress of Notre Dame. I think that
Notre Dame is my favorite building.
Sucre Couer is more Tesplendenr, but
too barbaric. The Madeline, designed
after a Greek temple, is not my idea of a
Christian church. The IjOtivrp is t >o im
mense. St. Etienne is richer, but shoddy
of exterior. Yes, Notre Dame !s my fa
vorite, with its matchless Goth:e. One
cannot imagine its charm rising from
that island in the Seine which was the
‘Cradle of Paris.' I cannot start to tell
you all of Paris. Would not havi lime
before my gray-liaired days. Just know
that it is to rno the city of ‘h» world,
tor America’s snke, one should never
compare our metropolis with the Frem;h.
All that Paris is to me, New York is not.
“Be sure. Mr. Allen, that my thoughts
are often with you in old F.ugene and
that 1 have the best hopes for the year
which you will be beginning about the
true you receive his. Oregon is alway
hi my heart.”

are hard to walk upon. In fact most peo

closed behind stone walls or iron fences

Ten Members in Organization;

An orchestra has just been formed
for the inusioally endowed residents of
Hendricks hall. According to all reports
it is a very promising organization, and
present members say it is to be expanded
later. I'rnetiee will begin the first of
The main purp >sp of the Hendricks
hull orchestra, which is the official title
given it, is to add jazz to the dances and
to provide the other members of the hall
with some really good music.
The present pers nnel of the orches
tra consists of Benia Keagy, the drums;
lsla Gilbert and Eva Hansen, the clari
net; Alice Sutton and Marion Bowen,
cornet; Edna Bice, violin; Marie Holden,
saxapbone; l’att.t Trench, trombone;
Martha Overstreet, bass horn; and Kuth
Snssnuvn, the piano.
The orchestra expects to take in many
new members next week, as there are
many girls who play instruments and
who have been wanting an organization
of this kind.

Drop Your Pledge
Cards in Boxes
Friday forWar Fund
Volunteer Day, Friday the eighth!
This is the day when you write on a
card the amount you are going to give for
the United War Work drive and drop it
into one of the several ballot boxes
which will be on the campus. One is to be
in the Bungalow, one in Hendricks hall,
one in the library, two in Friendly hall
and one in the barracks.
The men’s boxes will be open from
seven to seven-—the women’s from eight
to six as the women are not expected to
be around as early or stay as late as the '
“Girls, rush the boxes at an early hour
and show you mean business; don’t let
the men beat you. If everyone will rush
the boxes Friday it will help to put his
team over the top.” said Helen Brenton,
member of the general committee on the
war drive, “because pledges made on
Volunteer Day count 20 per cent toward
the team’s possible 100 per cent. Volun
teer on Volunteer Day!”
MISS FOX DISPELS CHAOS;
Dean Tells of Her Experiences WitK
Hi rod Help In France.
Dean Elizabeth Fox, who is in Tours,
at the head of a large hotel for women,
says, in a letter received by Miss Lillian
‘We moved into this mansion on Mon
day, the army having requisitioned it
from the Y. M. C. A. for the telephone
girls. Since that time I have lost two
maids who did not care to stay, have
discharged two, and given a third her
"It is rather fun to bring order out
<?f chaos, and after all the chaos was not
half as bad us the beginning of the
other little hotel which we left—which
was frightfully dirty. For the present I
am posing as manager of both.”
She tells of doing the marketing and
looking after the menus, which she says
is all very interesting.
"We expect to he the very center of
interest in a month or two,” writes Miss
Fox. “There are two vacant lots near
us and we have a large garden upon each
of which barracks will be built for girls.
“I am thoroughly enjoying all of the
work,” she writes in conclusion, “and
there is occasional opportunity to meet
the French people behind their high gar
i den walls.”
