The first assembly of the college year is to be held this
momuw? in Villard Hall. A program of welcome, arranged
especially for new students, consisting of short addresses by
the-President of the University, and the president of the As
sociated Students is to be given, along with a short program
Last year, due to various reasons, attendance at the weekly
assemblies fell off towards the end of the year, and every ef
fort is being made this year to avoid a repitition of this action
oil the part of the students of the University. Assemblies this
year will be limited to fifty minutes, starting at eleven, and
dismissing promptly at eleven-fifty.
Every new student must attend the opening assembly this
year, and every assembly thereafter if possible. The Thurs
day morning meetings in Villard offers the only opportunity
fhr the students and the faculty of the University to meet to
gether. It is certainly not too much to ask of every student
td attend these weekly meetings, when the University and stu
dent authorities are bending every effort to make these meet
ings both entertaining and. profitable.
THE DRINKING FOUNTAIN.
-Claeses graduating from the University since the first class
of five students left its alma mater in 1878 have presented to
the school conspieious tokens which have guaranteed perma
nent remembrance of the departing students. In keeping with
tliC spirit of service the seniors of 1920 installed a memorial
useful to the entire student body, faculty, and visitors. The
drinking fountain in front of the Library fills a long-felt want.
To new students and visitors, the campus is merely a jilot
of ground, artistically decorated with trees, shrubs, and vines.
Nature has been generous with her assistance to make Oregon
beautiful. However, aside from the natural beauty, old stud
ents and returning graduates have a peculiar interest in the
trees and campus memorials. Most of these are footprints
ip- the sand of time—moments which commemorate the time
when classes entered life’s battlefield.
Professor Condon, the grand old man of olden Oregon, orig
inated the idea of planting trees as class memorials. A tree
obtained by him, an English laurel, and planted by the class
of *78, is still gfowing.near the west walk leading from Viliarl
to Ueady- Trees Were planted, or claimed bv the graduating
closes up to 1900, excepting the class of ’93 which placed
a.large symetrical stone from one of the neighboring hills near
the famous Condon oaks.
Seniors of later years were apparently desirous of more
lading remembrances—ones which would not perish when the
scythe of Father Time ended the life cycle of trees. The Uni
versity seal near the front entrance of Villard, the Senior foun
tain, the Senior bench, walks, statues in various buildings, and
the drinking fountain are memorials erected by the classes of
more recent years.
But to the class of 1920, present students of the University
of Oregon owe a vote of appreciation for the presentation of
tlie only outdoor drinking "fountain on the campus, which com
bines utility with ornamentation.
All freshmen must take part in the annual “Frosh Parade,”
scheduled for this afternoon. The parade will furnish those
of you who are unacquainted with Oregon traditions an oppor
tunity to hear of them; it is annually the first outcropping of
Oregon Spirit. This parade is one of the big events of college
life, and vain regrets will be the reward of any who miss it.
This is your first chance to show yourselves, freshmen. Be
