THE FORMAL DANCE
HE University is fortun
ate in having a number
of old traditions to ad
here to. They have
been one of the great
est. factors in the ■dev
elopment of the famous
"Oregon Spirit,” and as
mug us we aunere to mem tms spirit
will survive and increase in strength.
In general, these traditions have
been upheld this year, but in one
particular we seem to be drifting
away from old custom and precedent,
and that is in regard to our class
formals. During the war there were
many reasons why the class dances
should bo informal, but now, when
the war is over and wo have joined
tlio ranks of the larger universities,
the old tradition of formal class
dances should be revived.
A college education is not complete
without a certain amount of social
training. Tho more lax we are in
this particular now, tho harder it
will be for the individual In later
life, when he finds that he is not
familiar with formal affairs and for
Certainly there is no need to run
rampant on the subject and have
every dance which is given a formal
affair, but there is such a tiling as
going to the other extreme and hav
ing none of our student body func
tions formal. Class dances where
students representative of the entire
University gather could well bo for
mal without working a hardship on
anyone, and tho prestige belonging
to an institution of our size ami rep
utation would be maintained.

College Co-eds to Debate
A dual debate between O. A. <\ co
eds and those of Willamette univer
sity lias been arranged for the latter
part of the term.
To the Editor:
I have noticed through your columns
that this year’s sophomore “formal”
was informal and now that the fresh
man glee is also to be informal.
It will be remembered that the for
mals were discontinued during the
war as a war measure, but the war
is now over. All year you have been
sending pleas urging students to up
hold the old traditions. Before the
war the class formal was as much
a tradition as the freshman green cap
and many other traditions. Don’t let
it die out and permit the class dances,
the biggest social events of the year,
to become merely “dances.”
Of course the argument is, “dress
suits are expensive and unnecessary.”
When I was an Oregon student I earnr
ed most of my way through college
and at the beginning of my sophomore
year I had to borrow money at'the
bank and pay interest on it till the
following summer in order to buy a
dress suit, but I have never been
sorry of the investment and I am sure
other students who bought them feel
Attending formal affairs and wear
ing dress suits is a very vital part of
every man’s education. Don’t neglect
it and above all don’t let our Univer
sity get in the “busher” class.

III Em DIVISION
FOR TEAR JUST ENDED
All But Two Counties of State
Represented, According to
That all but two counties in the
state were represented by the students
enrolled for correspondence study in
the extension division, that a total of
5,521 students received instruction,
and that every county in the state was
reached through the slide and film
service of the division, is shown by
the annual report for 1919 just sub
mitted to President P. L. Campbell “by
John C. Almack, acting director of
the extension division. According to
the report, five hundred and forty
three were enrolled in correspondence
study, 1018 registered in courses in
Portland extension division classes,
and 3960 teachers did reading circle
Fifteen new courses in correspond
ence study were added last year, mak
ing a total of 85 courses now offered.
That the quality of the courses of
fered through the Oregon extension
division compares favorably with
those of other institutions is shown
by a letter received by the director
of the division from Mr. L. R. Aider
man, library specialist, Navy depart
ment, Washington, D. C., which says:
Extension Model at Capital
“You will be interested to know that
when I applied at the General univer
sity extension office (Washington, D.
C.) for model lessons as given by
correspondence schools, I was handed
one in mechanical drawing from the
University of Oregon.”
In Portland, 83 courses were offered
in 1919 as compared to 59 courses in
1918, and there was an increase in
attendance of 64 per cent.
1 he report states tnat people
were reached by the extension divis
ion through its various branches, in
cluding lectures, publications, the
high school debating league, and the
exhibit at the state fair last fall.
In looking toward the future, a few
of the things mentioned in the report
were: a heavy demand for more
commerce courses; that 14 towns have
sent in communications regarding the
possibility of organizing regular ex
tension classes; that the division, with
the cooperation of the United States
public health service, is undertaking
the investigation of the cause and
extent of dependency, delinquency, and
defectiveness in the state; and the
bureau of vocational research which
was organized in 1919 is now ready
to begin work.
Investigations are Planned
The bureau of vocational research
plans to conduct practical investiga
tions, such as a study of the successes
and failures of college and high school
students who prepare for skilled
trades, by entering the professions or
business with a view of obtaining in
formation on which advice to students
may be based. Also, it) is planned to
collect and distribute information
about training required, and compet
itive and general conditions in the
different industrial and professional
