Anna, Karagozian Wants Joys
of Freedom for Her Land.

“I want my po dfrle to have the joy of
life as American people have it,” says
Anna Karagozian, Armenian, and stu
dent at Oregon. That her people may
have that joy Miss Karagozian is direct
ing every effort to obtain a higher educa
tion in order to return and take them
"the things Americans have.” She plans
to do social service work and at the
same time write of the life of her people
so that the outside world may know
more of them.
ou people here cannot understand
nor appreciate your freedom,” the girl
from Armenia who does appreciate it.
explains. “Why, in Armenia the people
do not know what it is to vote or have a
law court. Their church is the only gov
ernment that they have. There are no
schools except as the church provides
It is for this that Miss Karagozian
wishes to learn as much as she can to
help this church in its almost impossible
Glad She Chose Oregon.
In 1806, the girl tells her friends, her
father’s five brothers were all killed in
the great massacre of that year.
“Oh, no, they have no reason,” she
adds. “The Turks are unspeakable.
They kill only because we are Christians.
I think it is because they lack education.
They are inhuman.”
One would not know as he passed Miss
Karagozian on the campus, that she is
not an American, or that she is the first
of her people to attend any institution
of higher learning in Oregon, He* might
guess that she won a scholarship in high
school, for hers is a bright face, full of
animation and interest.
“I am so glad that I chose Oregon,”
she says. “No, I do not know why I did
it. Perhaps the ‘Oregon spirit’ called
me. Anyway I shall always be glad I
did choose it.”
Turks Are Evaded.
The story of how they left their na
tive land some twelve years ago, travel
ing at night and hiding during the day in
constant fear that they would be discov
ered hnd killed is still a nightmare to
her. In the great massacre of 18116 all
her people except her parents and grand
mother were killed or taken away. At
that time, when she was forced to hide
under a bridge in order to escape the
Turks, Mrs. Karagozian decided to go to
America. It took twelve years to ac
"Do not think I am not an American,”
said Miss Karagozian. “I love America;
it is truly my country.” Anna Knrago
zian is anxious that no one think it luck
of patriotism for America that makes
her wish to return. “Other Americans
go to Armenia,” she says. “I will just
be one of them, for I really am both
American and Armenian.”
Miss Karagozian formerly attended
Franklin high school in Portland, where
she was prominent in school activities.
For three years she was school corre
spondent for the Oregonian. She was
also secretary of the Student Body asso
ciation, and president of the Home Eco
nomics club, the largest girls’ organiza
tion in the school. Miss Karagozian also
attended the Lincoln high school where
she was graduated last .Tune with high
PLAN FROSH-ROOK RUN
Cross-Country Team Race Before Foot
ball Game Is Plan.
Negotiations arc under way for the
arrangement of a cross-country race be
tween the rooks and the frosh to he
staged just before Oregon-O. A. <\ fresh
man football game on Kincaid fivld No
vember 11. as a preliminary of the Home
coming program. Very few freshmen
are turning out for cross-country at
present, but if arrangements are com
pleted for the race a good turnout is ex
pected and an effort will be made on the
part of the athletic department to put
those turning out in fair physical condi

weeks is considered a very short time in
which to condition men for distance run
This attempt to arrange such a meet
for the freshmen is part of the new
policy of the athletic department to
further freshman athletics.

INFIRMARY ADDS X-RAY
A portable X-ray machine strong
enough for all fracture work, has been
purchased foi; the immediate use of the
infirmary. The staff feels that the ad

more ol me acciuenr esses as uie ma
ehine can be wheeled to the bedside and
the work handled there.
The X-ray is riot intended for radium
work but will be used for pictures of
fractures and in diagnostic work. It rep
resents a considerable outlay and is a
valuable asset to the department.
