4 INTERCOLLEGIATE RELATIONS.
: ; Pacific coast colleges and universities will likely be brought
iiito closer contact than ever before as a result of the inter
edllegiate newspaper conference, the first ever held west of
the Mississippi river, now in session on the campus. Although
the conference is primarily intended as a method of solution
p£ college journalistic problems and of formation of an inter
cpMegiatjp press association, it will, in all probability, reach
f&£*beyohd these bonds. '
v.};t^ft?re than student associations or any other means of in
tc^eollegiate communication, college newspapers serve to
CiatSfly on intercourse between student bodies. Officials of
sifoiept; bodies meet but few during the school year; college
newspapers' are issued from one to five times a week, and
there is pot an issue that does not contain matter of more or
li^S importance in intercollegiate relations. Since these news
papers are Widely circulated through exchange, they form the
bi$i|jt ihekns of determining opinion and attitude among col
tijfes and universities.
V-LQuite naturally, the better understanding among college
‘mMichtiori Officials which will certainly grow out of the press
inference and the subsequent formation of a press associa
will help to cement friendship and foster co-operation
png the Pacific coast institutions. The benefit which the
lege newspapers themselves will derive, in the shape of im
ived ijfitoffeollegiate news service and organization of busi
ly department, will be eminently worthwhile. Of great im
cance, however, is the growth of good feeling and under
standing among student bodies in general wliiqh should come
as a result of the conference.
THE BIGGEST HOMECOMING.
Sy tonight, many of the alumni of Oregon will be on the
pus. Tomorrow all those who can will be in Eugene for
ieeoming. It is up to the students of Oregon to show these
.-^imprsthat the same old fighting spirit that was in school
..Jefi they were here is still thriving on the campus. Let’s
jpiajke.it the biggest and .best Homecoming in history!
U Romiembcr the old Oregon traditions. Alumni of Oregon
a$p remitted to the campus greeting, “hello,” as well as any
ofttpr student on tte campus. Oregon is known for its liospi
talfe, and no gtxest otf tire University should receive more eon
fviferation than Oregon men and women themselves.
hAnd remember that old grads are going . to compare the
present spirit with that of their day. Keep the good old spirit
finned up to the fever pitch until sundown Saturday night.
Make tonight’s rally the noise climax of the season. Show the

The problems of the small college
-newspaper were discussed in the first
talk by George Yancey. He outlined
. the difficulties encountered in choosing
1 the news for a weekly paper read by a
\ small student body such as thete is at
Whitman. Trips to conferences for the
editor and manager and credits toward
graduation for members of the staff
j were suggested by him as possible re
' wards for the work done on a paper. Pay
for the editor and manager was advo
cated by Foster, of Washington, in the
'discussion following. ’
( Mitchell Charnley, formerly editor of
f thet Williams College Record, and now
associate editor of the Washington Daily,
told of methods used at Williams to
stimulate interest in getting on the staff
t of the Record. Three competitions a
(year are held among staff aspirants at
■ that place and two members are chosen
jat the elose of eaeh competition. In this
[way six men are elected to the staff from
the freshman class and they hold their
| positions throughout their years in col
lege. The profits of the paper there are
divided on a percentage basis among tjjie
chief members of the staff.
Attractive Make-up Vital.
Methods of enlivening the editorial
page and of making it a rearand worth
while factor in the life of the institution
were outlined by A. Wendell Brackett in
the second of the regular talks. Ifc ad
vocated an attractive makeup and the
judicious use of features as two of the
iberit means of keeping this section a
readable and entertaining part of the
paper, ne also advocated a consistent
and absolutely sincere editorial -policy.
The remainder of the session was
taken up With a round table discussion
in which all took part.
The second and last meeting of the
conference will be held this morning

[ENGLISH TO STAND TEST
Preparation Work of Small and Large
Schools to be Compared.
An investigation is go'ng to be made
by the English department in the 15 dif
ferent sections of freshman English to
determine whether the schools in the
larger towns in the state are superior
to the schools in the smaller towns in
preparing students for college work.
The grades of all the students taking
freshman English will be compiled and
those of the students from the larger
towns such as Portland, Astoria. Eu
gene and Salem will be compared with
those of the students from the smaller
places. In this manner an estimate will
be obtained of the schools giving the best
preparation for college English.
