To University of Oregon Students:
Last year we all worked for a “Greater Oregon” through
increased financial resources, and the splendid new buildings
now rising on our campus and the great increase in the Uni
versity staff are evidence of our success and of the confidence
of the state in the University. This year we can justify the
increased responsibility placed upon us all by continuing to
work for “Greater Oregon” by maintaining the highest stand
ard of scholarship and of University ideals.
There are now twelve schools or major divisions in the Uni
versity. The enrollment this fall will certainly reach at least
two thousand. With this growth in size and diversity of work
there is danger that the University will lose the close com
munity spirit which lias always characterized it. By conscious
striving against this tendency to segregate into groups, 1 am
sure that this fine old friendly cooperation can be maintained.
This is the year, it seems to me, to carry forward the work
studied by student committees for several years, namely that
of student self-government. A self-government based on mu
tual confidence, mutual respect and mutual effort in achieving
the highest type of University life, and representing every fac
tor in the University community, student and faculty alike,
will round out splendidly the organization and life in the
Un iversity.
My greetings go to all Oregon students, new and old. This
will be the finest year in the history of the University and we
lire glad that you are to be a part of it.

lett 'Monday the freshman football can

One of tlie most remarkable things
about the registration of students at the

sas, Nebraska, Mississippi, and tlllinob
in the middle west. Many arc enrolled

standing from other colleges. This is «
gain of about 33 1-3 per cent over that
of last year, Mrs. Fitch states.

being a gain of lOo over that of the sec
ond day o registration last year. Mon

last year.

Campus Piggers
Face New Rival
In “Eyron Mike”
* Hey there. you champion piggers
I here’s a fellow on the campus now wht
has kissed more co-eds in the past t\v<
days than there are bricks in the Wo
moil’s huilding.”
Startling as this statement may seem
it is the truth. Both the dean of wotnei
aud the dean of men are -awave of tin
fact but each evinces complete sanetioi
of this remarkable state of affairs. Eacl
hour his list of fair and friendly lips
grows longer. Each minute some mat
wishes he could get away with sucl
“democracy.” '
“Who is he?" Why he's Eyron Mike
a left-over from the class of 1920, prom
inent prohibitionist, member of Bubbh
Bubble Bubble, and a newly installec
member of the National Order o:
’Tween Class Meetings Places. He ar
rived on the campus during the smnmei
and is permanently located sit his pres
ent stand1 in front of the library steps.
When the class of ’20 wins on the vergi
of departure from the University, they
decided to leave behind them somethin?
which would be constantly in contae
with the students as a reminder of then
great and noble class. Unlike the class
of '10, they decided upon something that
could be used by frosh and senior alike
Mike was the logical one far the place
so he was chosen.
Whether or not his cooling touch wil
prove a successful counter-attraction foi
the library steps remains yet to be seen

you listen to it.’’

Shakespear Slipped Up on Adage
What’s in" a Name? Mo*n You’d* Think
® ® &
Hospitable Elmer Has Latest on It
Ma.vbe Shekespear was right iu his es
timate of the scant significance of names,
but an answer received to 11 letter of
welcome mailed to a prospective student
Usings doubt's. 1'VJIowing an ancient
cusltom of the university, :old timers
who arrived early obtained lists of stu
dents who had written inquiring about
entering. The following letter is typi
cal of those mailed, though the answer
is unique.
The letter was addressed to a “Mr.
Browning Purdin”:
Dear Purdin:
I understand that you are to come to
the University this fall, and I want to
know you. Maybe you’ll come here a
perfect stranger y.vut it doesn’t take
long to get acquainted. Everyone is
friendly and we want you to act on
that idea.
I live at Friendly Hall on the ground
floor. Come in via the window—it’s
nearest. We’ll manuge to supply you
with a dresser or table or maybe a
trunk to hang your feet from and we’ll
have a talk that will make you think
you're in your own back yard.
Possibly we wont like each other but
I promise not to kick you out the first
time anyhow. Climb in.
The answer was as follows:
Dear Pcndell:
Your letter i-eceivcd and I thank you
for your courtesy. I appreciate your
friendly spirit immensely and regret that,
two reasons prohibit my accepting your
hospitality; one being that I hare beep
forced to change my plans and will
lie unable to enter the University this
fall, and the other,-I believe that it is
not deemed proper by the authorities for
young ladies to call at the men’s dor mi -
tory and perch themselves upon trunks
or tobies and imbibe tin tuanly con
versation and much smoke. 1
Alas, ’tis not for us of the weaker
sex,-but what could be more thrilling.
I assure you again, that if it wore
possible I would surely accept your hos
My parents held no particular grudge,
just luu insane inspection prompted
them to handicap me through .life with
a name like mine. Think nothing of
your error; everyone makes the same
mistake and I regard it as a huge joke.
If you ever come south drop in at
the bank. While we have no trunks we
have plenty of tables and stools to sit
Wishing you a successful year at the
University and thanking you again for
your friendliness, I am ”1
Yours sincerely, '
MISS Browning Pur din.
