Why has the University seen fit to adopt the new rul
ing which shortens Christmas vacation next year to one week
and! opens school a week later in, the fall than in the past?
There seems to have been no cause for any such action, and
that it was made without taking into consideration the fact.
that the student body might he directly opposed to such a
One reason given by the faculty was that they washed to
give the working student an opportunity to work a week
longer during the summer. Needless to say the movement
will not be appreciated by many working students. Students
want to get out of school earlier. [When spring comes they
are just as anxious to go to Work. But when autumn arrives
they are just as anxious to return, andl when students are re
turning to other schools, they want to stop working and re
turn also. 1 '
The fact that the Christmas vacation is to he shortened
is the hardest blow. Tt will prevent the full enjoyment of the
holidays by practically every student, and will prevent many
more from returning to their homes for the vacation because!
of the short time allowed for the trip.
Christmas vacation should he a full two weeks, and if
the summer vacation is lengthened, a week of spring added
would be much more satisfactory than under the present plan
as adopted. A reconsideration of the ruling would be great
ly appreciated by all the students of the University.
The series of articles by Bill Hayward, which began in
this issue, are well worth the attention of every Oregon man.
Track men are not horn, but are made, and Bill has made
manv of them out the greenest material. There are many
Oregon men Who do not realize the opportunity they have of
training under one of the greatest track men in the country.

[Douglass. The survey is divided into
three parts: pedagogical tests, intelli

These tests are given each year, and

One Suggestion Is that Teachers Be Sent
to Columbia for Study of
Fine Arts.
Nuts, Nuts, Nuts—enough to play all
the leading parts of “Ben Bolt,” and
a million or two to spare, inhabit the
world. Carlton Spencer, registrar, has
come to this conclusion after reading
letter after letter from queer people,
who write him, giving advice, informa
tion and scandal.
The latest of these queer epistles is
from a woman in a northwestern city
who advises Mr. Spencer to look into
the advantages of Columbia University
witli a view of sending two teachers
then# to learn “the arts.” The writer
says the arts “are very beautiful things
and would be of great benefit in adver
tising the University.”
In conclusion she describes the “arts”
and says, “I will close and if this has
helped you I will be glad I have wrote.”
As a postscript she adds, “of course as
you keep adding new arts, keep adver
Another strange letter is from a gen
tleman in an eastern city, who invites
all University students to attend his
church there. As a matter of special
advertising he says, “There is no charge,
refined people, musical voices and im
pressive liturgy.” He signs himself.
When these letters were shown to a
member of the psychology department
he characterized the writer of the first
ns “simple minded” and the writer of
the religious letter as a plain “nut.”

Three Graduates of ’81 May
Attend Celebration.
June 18 will be the biggest Almnni
day in the history of the University if
present plans of Miss Charlie Fenton,
alumni secretary, are successful.
Miss Fenton started yesterday on the
work of organizing classes for their re
unions. This year it is the ■ “ones and
sixes” that are going to do big things in
the way of alumni celebrations.
Starting with the class of ’81 Miss
Fenton has planned reunions for ’80, ’91,
’96, ’01, ’06, ’ll and T6. For the class
of ’81 it will be the 40th reunion. Of
the six original members only three are
now alive, Anne Wliiteaker of Eugene,
Dr. George F. Bushnell of San Francisco
and Claiborne Milton Hill of the Pacific
Coast Theological of Berkeley. It is
hoped that all will be able to come.
According to Miss Fenton’s plan a
chairman of each class will be appointed
to get in touch with the other members
and see that they attend the reunion.
Miss Louise Whitton ’8£t, of Eugene and
Marion McClain, ’06, graduate manager,
are- the only ones appointed in this ca
pacity to date.
As a special feature of Alumni day an
alumni parade is planned, wherein all re
/turned alumni will march. All class re
unions will be held on that day.
Among the well known personages who
are expected to take part in the cele
bration will be C. W. (Pat) McArthur of
the U. S. house of representatives, “Pat”
has the record of never missing a reunion
if he can possibly help it.
