Oregon “ Osfye” Startles Wyomingites
After attending the World Student
conference in Des Moines and coming
in close contact with students from
every part of the earth, Louise Davis,
one of the student delegates from
the U. of O.j says: "Not one state in
the union can hold a banner up to
Oregon. This University can hold
her head as high as any in the coun
try, and Oregon can be justly proud
of her sons and daughters. I’m sure
the women delegates think that the
western men are the best in the
One of the interesting things about
the convention was its cosmopolitan
nature. There were delegates from
40 different countries. Miss Davis
tells about how she and Ella Raw
lings went to a luncheon given by
the Canadians. Miss Davis was seat
ed with the guests. On her left was
a Mr. Steedy, from Central Africa,
a senior in theology at Yale. He
had spoken at the convention, tell
ing Africa’s need for doctors and mis
On her right was the only woman
representative from India. She was
about 30, with a real small oval face.
She wore her native costume. The
vain attempts to pronounce her name,
which sounded something like “Micha
Su,” amused her very much. Edu
cated by missionaries, and sent to
this country for higher learning, she
is a typical example of the women
of India who are given an opportun
ity. Just at the banquet she found
out that India had gained home rule
and was greatly delighted.
A Korean spoke and a South Ari
can gave a very clever speech. All
s these foreign people showed great
^iove for Great Britain, according to
Miss Davis. They said Great Bri
tain above all others, had shown in
terest in them and helped them. Miss
Davis believes these people at the
cenvention were finest in the world.
^v‘It made me realize what wonderful
advantages we have in Amrica,” she
said. “While there are so many others j
who have nothing to make their lives
even interesting.”
Among the delegates to the conven
toon was a short, red-haired man
with freckles. Miss Davis had al
ways connected these characteristics
with an Irishman, but discovered
that he talked to a friend of his in
a foreign language. Now Miss Davis
professes she does not know one
foreign language from another, but
says she finally found that he spoke
Spanish. He afterwards spoke at
the convention and said he was a
Mexican. “You people believe that a
Mexican is always a dark, heavy set
man with a bandana and a dagger
in his mouth, but I want to tell you
there are a lot of us who live under
’red roofs.” This was a Mr. Sayne
from Berkeley and on the way home
the Oregon special was hitched to
the California cars. Mr. Sayne. who
' was on the California train, proved
a general favorite, but “we fairly
captured and kept him with us all
the whole trip,” said Miss Davis.
“He talked about the Mexican situa
tion and told us that it was not a
lot of bullets and physical force that
we needed in our dealings with
Mexico, but rather Christianity, and
that the real situation was misrepre
sented by American financiers.
There were many interesting little
incidents happened during the trip.
On the way to Des Moines the train
made a ten minute stop at a small
town called Green River, in Wy
oming. The Oregon delegation all
piled out and were feeling rather
“wild and woolly,” so they rushed a
movie. It didn’t prove very inter
esting, so they came out. Out in the
street, Lindsay McArthur, one of
the party, began yelling the “Oski”.
An officer of the law stepped up and
said, “Look here, young man, I
don’t know where you are from, but
this is Green River, and you can’t
act this way, here. I think I’ll
lock you up.” Whereupon the rest
of the delegates had a perfectly awful
time convincing the officer to let
McArthur go, and they just made
the train in time.
At the convention, which was held
in the Coliseum at Des Moines, the
seating was done according to states,
said Miss Davis. The seats above
the first floor were arranged in tiers
on each side. The southern delgates
sat in the first tier, the northwestern
people in the second tier and the
western and Canadian delegates down
stairs. College yells were given, and
much interest was shown in the
Harvard-Oregon game, the colleges
also yelled for both of the schools.
New Year’s eve, delegates from
all Oregon colleges had dinner to
gether at Barnes’ Cafeteria, and held
a rally for the Harvard-Oregon game.
Johnny Houston was the yell leader.
When the 7-6 score was announced
everyone went wild, yelled madly
and serpentined around. “We did not
feel this a defeat,” said Miss Davis,
and explained that the eastern col
leges did not even think Oregon bad
a chance, and even refused to be
lieve at first that such a scose had
been made.
Montana Honors Dead
‘‘Memorial Way” is the name of an
avenue on Montana university cam
pus. The way is lined with 32 young
trees, which represent as a memorial
the students of the university who
died in the service of their country.

Along with the plans for the wo
men’s building Dean E. F. Lawrence
of the school of architecture has out
lined a women’s athletic field to be
situated between the new building
and the cemetery. Conctruction will
commence this summer, according to
Miss Mabel Cummings, head of the
department of physical training for
women, and it is hoped that it will be
complete in time for next season’s
hockey tournaments.
Although the field will be consider
ably limited in ^pace there will be
plenty of room for a full sized hockey
field, running track and two baseball
diamonds. The other sports, such aiS
tennis and canoeing, will be held on
other parts of the campus.
“The natural situation for the field
is excellent”, said Miss Cummings. I
“On the north side will be the wo
men’s building with its arcadeljk®
porch 150 feet long, rising several
feet above the level of the field and
facing it, affording a lovely place
from which to view the sports. On
the south side will be the long row
of evergreen trees growing along the
edge of the cemetery and severtl
tiers of cement seats sloping down to
the field. The indoor gymnasium now
in use will be moved to the west end
of the field and shrubbery will be
planted on all sides making an at
tractive and practical location for
women’s sports with just the neces
sary privacy which is lacking in the
present system. The girls are now
forced to dress in their bloomers and
middies at the gymnasium, walk clear
across the campus, across the street!
car track, and in front of the admin-! j
istration building to reach their hock- j |
ey and baseball grounds, which is not j
an ♦ideal condition by any means
When the new building and field are
finin’shed the sports in which gym
nasium attire is necessary will be
held adjoining the building.”
The field itself will be thoroughly j i
tiled and drained, the plan being tc
make it similar to the new Hayward
field in this respect, so that it will j
be in good condition for fall and i
spring sports. ,
A very important meeting of the
freshman class is to be held Thurs

State Principals Request Wartime
Measure Be Rescinded to Help
Their Work
That the rule which permits stu
dents who have not completed their
high school training to enter the
University be rescinded at the open
ing of the winter term was the unan
imous decision of the year-schedule
committee which met to discuss ques
tions to be acted upon at the next
faculty meeting. As a war measure
it was decided some time ago to al
low students who would ordinarily
graduate from high school in Feb
ruary, to enter the University in
January and go back and graduate
later. High school principals have
objected seriously to this rule, so
the committee thought it advisable
to take steps to regulate the matter.
The majority of the committee re
commended that the present term
plan be continued and made per
manent, although some favored the
former semester plan according to
Professor E. E. DeCou, member of
the committee. Professor DeCou
; has just completed a report on the
division plans used by 33 state uni
| versifies and large independent uni
versities, from which he gathered
| that:
At present 14 use the three term
plan and 19 the two semester plan.
Pacific coast institutions nearly all
use the three term plan, eastern uni
versities the two semester plan, while
central and southern institutions di
vide on the question. The indepen
dent colleges of Oregon use the two
semester plan.
Over half the institutions favor
a 12 weeks summer session and the
movement toward it is growing ra
All the 33 institutions have sum
mer sessions.
Graduate students form ten to
25 per cent of the summer attend
Although as yet no definite check
has been made of the money turned
in by t)|p students’ holiday drive for
the women's building, those in charge
of the drive feel certain that over
$5000 in cash has been added to the
fund. If this amount of caBh is
reached or exceeded, the University
will be able to let contracts for
plumbing, wiring and finishing the
inside as soon as construction work
on the walls will permit, Karl On
thank, secretary to President Camp
bell, said in discussing the progress
of the work on the building.
The death of W. O. Heckart, the
contractor who is building the walls,
has not interfered with the work.
His heirs have taken over the con
tract and are carrying the plans on
to completion, according to Mr. On
If the University is able to provide
funds for finishing the building as
soon us work can be begun, it will
insure the completion of it by the
opening of school next fall.
