In the columns of today’s paper
will be found a story telling of the
visit of Lawrence Dineen, a graduate
of the class of 1916, to our campus
and the criticism lie has to offer of
Oregon students as he finds them
after an absence of several years.
In general Mr. Dineen says that he
finds the students show a great lack
of interest and information in national
and state affairs—that they fail to
let their information and vision lift
above the pale of the campus.
Without a doubt a short review of
themselves on the part of every stu
dent on the campus will find that
Mr. Dineen is true. In the hurry
and scurry of University life it is
far too easy for students to forgot
everything but their studies, their
social activities and ottrnr campus
duties. In a few words students are
prone to confine their thoughts, ac
tivities and efforts to the University
alone. It is easy to move about the
campus day in and day out, making
it a sort of secluded little city in
itself, with only an occasional glance
at the outside world.
This continual adhering to the con
tines of book study; this delving into
books alone for an education too
often causes the student to forget
to keep abreust of the times and
learn something of what is going on
in the country about him. This lack
of studying present day conditions
along with their regular course of
study tends to make the student's
education one of theory only.
it is surprising to note that in vis
iting over 20 bouse organisations
on tlic campus Mr. Dineen found but
one prominent state paper being tak
en by each house. This aids in bear
ing out the statement that Univer
sity students are lax in their inter
est in statewide news and affairs.
And yet they are attending school
in order to prepare themselves to
be the leaders in the state and na
tion in later years.
While it is true that University
days are busy ones, the education
and preparedness for a life of suc
cess they bring will la1 sadly ham
pered if we are not awake to the
ever shifting conditions that are tak
ing place outside the meagre bounds
of our campus.
Get out your rod ink, Alumni, and
Bcatter it pretty freely around the
number 15 on the November sheet
of your calendar. That is the time
when you are coming home. It is
already a red letter date for Oregon
students. Alumni, you should make
it such for you.

Women to Fix Schedule for Series at
Meeting Thursday After
All the houses on the campus are
lined up for interfraternity and inter
sorority dehate to start immediately
after the Thanksgiving recess. A
meeting of the interfraternity forensic
council will he held next Tuesday at
4 o’clock in Professor R. W. Pres
cott’s room, downstairs in Johnson
hall. The purpose of the meeting is
to definitely phrase the immigration
question, the schedule having been
drawn up at a meeting held a week
Also a meeting of the women’s
intersorority forensic council will be
held in Professor Prescott’s room at
4 o’clock next Thursday to decide
on a definite schedule for the inter

To tlie Editor of The Emerald:
The military records of the Uni
versity show that over 2,000 students,
former students, alumni and mem
bers of the faculty entered the mili
tary serviae of the United States dur
ing the Great War. Of this number
43 gave their lives to the cause.
Nearly a year has passed since the
armistice was signed and as yet no
steps have been taken in the direc
tion of a memorial for these men in
whose sacrifice the University lias
the greatest honor.
It is true that there have been
many good reasons why this matter
lias been postponed. Conditions have
been upset, and the number of
“drives” for this cause and that have
made the past year unpropitious. But
1 can see no good reason now why
the University should not lend its
interest and whole-hearted support to
the cause of a memorial for our men
—our boys—who lost their lives for
the cause of humanity.
A memorial of a character suitable
for so great and worthy a cause will
mean a large undertaking., It. will
mean the raising of thousands of
dollars; it will mean much careful
consideration as to the form and
site of the memorial structure. It
may well lie that years will be re
quired to bring this undertaking to a
successful issue. But of this 1 am
confident: When the matter has been
brought to the attention of the stu
dents and the alumni it will receive
their undivided support. 1 think the
raising of the necessary funds will
be a matter of no great difficulty.
Certainly no man or woman con
nected with the University in any
way will think it anything but a
privilege to give and to give gen
erously -to s>uli a cause. Every ex
service man will want to give; every
class that lost one or its number
will want to give; every member of
the faculty, which lost one of its
most beloved members, will want
to give; and the people of the com
munity at large will want to give.
There will be no difficulty about the
Let’s get this thing started. First,
of "course, is an organization. That
will mean a committee from the stu
dent body to co-operate with a com
mittee of thi' faculty, and one from
the alumni. Let’s put our hearts
into this undertaking. It’s worth our
very best efforts.
That social events will be crowded
one after another and even in twos
and twos during the coming week
ends is the report of the social com
mittee which met this week to sche
dule the larger University parties for
the year. This week-end is a fair
example, starting with the best V M -
Y.W. mixer ever known and ending
with the freshmen acquaintance party
this evening.

Federation Invited To Meet
In Women’s Building
in 1921
The University of Oregon delega
tion to the Oregon State Federation
of Women’s Clubs returned to the
University Thursday evening, bring
ing with them a consciousness of
the fine work the women of Oregon
are doing for the welfare of the state
and a determination to do all on
their part to help in the federation’s
big constructive program This
determination was expressed to the
confederation by Louise Davis, pres
ident of the University league, and
was accepted by the women with
enthusiasm. <
'The invitation which the Oregon
delegates had expected to extend
during the session to the convention
to be guests of the University Wo
men’s league next fall, was found
impossible for during the session the
convention decided to hold its next
meeting in the spring. At that time
the women’s building will not be com
pleted. The Oregon delegation ex
pressed its regret at being unable to
extend the intended invitation with
the hope that the league would have
the privilege of entertaining the wo
men the following year.
Oregon Sends Full Quota
Oregon’s full quota of delegates
attended the Wednesday and Thurs
day meetings of the convention.
Louise Davis and Delegate Nell War
wick attended the Tuesday sessions,
the other members being unable to
reach Corvallis until Wednesday on
account of class work.
The convention was closed Thurs
day afternoon with the election of
officers for the coming year.
Mrs. L. E. Bean, one of Eugene's
most prominent clubwomen, was
elected auditor.
Mrs. Ida B. Callahan of Corvallis
was elected president.
Mrs. Collins Elkins off Prineville
was elected first vice-president; Mrs.
William Bell of lioseburg, second
vice-president; Mrs. Charles Hines of
Forest Grove, recording secretary;
Mrs. John Van Zandt of Portland,
treasurer; Mrs. J. W. Sadler of Au
rora and Mrs. E. T. Wade of Pendle
ton, directors, and Mrs Charles H.
Castner of Hood River, federation
Many Localities Represented
The fact that the officers elected
represented so many different local
ities—Corvallis, Prineville, southern
Oregon, Forest Grove, Portland,
Eugene, Aurora—is a great satisfac
tion to all of the clubwomen.
Mrs. P. L. Campbell, chairman of
the children's committee, introduced
resolutions providing for better pro
vision for crippled children and these
were approved and referred to the
committee on health.
Don Davis of the Owl club went to
McMinnville Thursday to attend the
Y. M. C. A. state convention.

it would be well that every student
in the University have ever in his
mind those words of meaning:

The armory has at last been se
cured for the big dance on Home
coming day. A number of complica
tions arising out of the fact that the
armory had been leased for every
Saturday night this winter made mat
ters rather unsettled, but according
to Jack Dundore, head of the dance
committee, these are satisfactorily
settled now and plans for the dance
are progressing rapidly.
Committee Appointed
Gross’ ten-piece orchestra has been
secured for the affair and the heads
of the committees have been ap
pointed. Those who will be in
charge of the dance are Beatrice
Crewdson, decorations; Bill Hollen
beck, programs; Grace Rugg, music;
and Charlie Fenton, patrons and pa
tronesses. Sub-committees to work
under these people will be appointed
at the next meeting of the Homecom
ing committee, which will be held on
Thursday evening at 7:15 in Pro
fessor Gilbert's room.
