With examinations scheduled for
next week, members -of the Greater
Oregon committee and the student
body at large should make big prep
arations this week for the campaigns
and methods they are going to use
in raising the $30,000 for the Wo
men’s building during the Christmas
holidays. Next week will be more
or less broken up with examinations,
registration and preparation for the
visit home, so that this week should
see the definite plans for the big
drive well under way. Many of the
district chairmen have made exten
sive plans which bespeak success in
their committees. It will be an
easy matter to pick out the live
wire districts of the state next term
after the finals returns of the dif
ferent sections have been made
Enthusiasm in the venture should
be :u fever heat before we depart
for our homes next week. This is
without question one of the biggest
moves ever started by a student
body on the Pacific Coast and we
will be judged by the way we put it
over, by citizens of the state and
members of the other coast institu
tions. The building itself will be
of untold value to our campus. It
will not only open a wondejJ'ul
building for the women of Oregon,
but will also make room in a number
of other buildings on tho campus
for the student body and the many
students of the state who cannot
attend the University now because
of the lack of room.
Without an exception every mem
ber of the student body should at
tend assembly Thursday when every
detail of the big move will be out
m.- week will be the last one we
will have this term in which to
make preparation for the term’s ex
aminations. Conscientious effort, a
sacrifice of social ga.veties and long
er hours of study will make it pos
sible for many of us to return to
our beloved haunts next term with
out the heavy probation requirements
hanging over our heads ready to
bcin ish us at the first slackening of
our part. Furthermore it will
raise the scholastic standing of uut
University, a condition which is the
goal of much faculty consideration
“Time tells all things,” says the
old proverb. With all his atiquitv1
old Father Time outclasses a certain
committee in connection with the
Tournament of Roses, when it comes
to making things public.
Just because examinations are
looming up in the near future is no
reason why we should go about the
campus with an expression on our
face which looks like the advance
agent of a hard winter.
End of the world December 17.
! Examinations at the University of
Oregon December 17. Now if the
prophet was a university student
I many of us would see reason for
his dire forecast.
There are too many things in the
world to kick about to spend time
kicking about nothing
Some people live on other folk’s
smiles and cheery words. Why not
give them a little nourishment.
