The Jaw library of the University is to he increased by
some ten or twelve thousand volumes, the law collection of
William Davis Fenton, a Portland attorney, given to the law
school of the University as a memorial to Kenneth Lucas Fen
ton, a son who died a few years ago. The gift cannot he
valued in terms of money.; it might easily be called a priceless
and invaluable addition to the law library of the state Uni
The bequest is a collection which took Mr. Fenton two
score years to gather. No one ever will be able to express in
words the deep appreciation which Oregon students feel to
wards the donor of this library. In refusing to allow the col
lection to he sold and scattered, Mr. Fenton has done a real
service, which cannot fail to touch the hearts of the future
lawyers of the state.
It is such gifts as this which cause Oregon students to
hold such a feeling of pride in their University. Oregon stu
dents honor the friends of their University. Oregon has
reached its present high plane because of these friends.
The law school of the University of Oregon can seek no
better recommendation than that it was selected as the home
of this collection. It is a gift which puts the law library a
score of years ahead.
How is your vocabulary? Several freshman students of
English composition offer some peculiar definitions for “big
words” in our language. The disclosures are funny. But if
you can do no better yourself, don’t, laugh!
With two more new buildings opened, the old cry of
Vcramped quarters” isn’t heard so much any more.
SUMMER TERM POPULAR
Tan Per Cent of Regular Students Plan
To Attend Session.
Approximately 10 per cent of the reg
ular session students of the University
will remain for the summer term, ac
cording to Dean Dyment. Of these it
is estimated that one-third will register
in the lower division, while two-tldrds
are expected to take advanced or grad
“It is a good thing that regular stu
dents should stay for the summer term,”
said Dean Dyment. “Especially is jil
desirable that students in professional
or pre-professional work s h o u 1 d
strengthen their foundations by this ex

this' session should be considered the
first half of a fourth term, instead of an
entirely separate summer session.
An invitation to become a member of
the faculty of the summer term has been
extended to a well-known professor of
English literature in an eastern univer

ASKS NEW INFIRMARY
Additions to Consultation Staffs Urged;
Work of Department Reported
The need of a new infirmary with a
capacity of 24 to .'!() beds, additional
workers on the sttaff, and additions to
the consultation staff including a surgeon,
dentist and eye specialist, are some of
the points made in the annual report of
the student health committee submit
ted by Dean Bovard, chairman.
New lines of work have been taken
over by this committee during the year,
the report sets forth, including increased
surgical and diagnosis service, and the
responsibility for the examination of
all entering freshmen, 00 per cent of
whom have had the medical tests. The
report for women shows 00 per cent.
Three times as many operations are
reported as in the previous year. The
report adds that the infirmary has en
deavored to help the poorer students as
far as possible. Toward this end much
new apparatus has been installed, in
cluding expensive surgical equipment
such as an X-ray machine, operating
table and instruments.
An important endeavor of the past
year has been the development of the
student health service proper, which
has accomplished much good. The causes
contributing to poor health have been
examined and advice, full treatment and
medical services have been put at their
disposal, thus making for better health.

OREGANA WORK NOW
Forrest Littlefield New Manager; Editor
Hopes to Have Book Out By
Forrest Littlefield has been appointed
by the University executive committee
to succeed Warren Kays as business
manager of the Oregana. Kays has
withdrawn from school.
“The work on the Oregana is going on
rapidly and satisfactorily,” said Grad
uate Manager McClain yesterday.
“Everything is looking fine, and an es
pecially good Oregana is promised.”
Wanna McKinney, editor of the year
book .has received a sample of the cover
design for the book, done in the colors
which have been decided upon. “The
cover is absolutely different from any
thing the Oregana has ever used,” said
Miss McKinney. “It is done in forest
tones of green and brown with a touch
of Oregon lemon-yellow. I consider it
especially attractive.” she went on. “It
exceeds even my expectations.”
The page borders, which Miss McKin
ney describes as “typically Oregon.” are
all printed, and the subject matter will
bo placed very soon. These page bor
ders have been designed by the Oregana
art staff, and according to the editor,
they harmonize perfectly with the cover
Much of the composition matter is set
up, the proof read and returned to Koke
& Tiffany, Eugene, who are doing the
printing. All pictures have been en
graved with the exception of two or
three art plates.
In the literary department of the book,
will appear a short poem, “Looking
Down On Oregon.” by Miss Grace Edg
ington. Tn the opinion of the editors,
this poem is one of the best things in
the annual. Several of the routine de
partments have been condensed, said
Miss McKinney, so as to allow more
space for the other departments.
“Tile staff is endeavoring to got all
copies of the book out for Junior .Week
end,” Miss McKinney said. “We hope,
everyone who has subscribed will bo able
to get his Oregana on May 20, 21 or

of the porch to be open at night, and on
damp days they can be closed.
Formal Opening This Month.
A feature of the new hall is the large
recreation room directly beneath the
drawing room. Here the basement has
been fitted tip with cozy chairs ,a piano,
rugs and shaded lights. A large fire
place, in cream tiles as is the one in
the main drawing room, is at one end
of the room. A hardwood floor will per
mit the girls to use the room for danc
ing and recreational purposes.
In the basement are situated the
linen rooms, the laundry and drying
rooms, and the trunk room. Everything
is modern, and every possible conveni
ence has been arranged for the girls.
The girls will have their dining room
service at the Friendly hall cafeteria,
with the exception of Miss Withycombe
and a group of the girls, who will dine
at Hendricks hall.
A formal openiug of Susan Campbell
hall is anticipated during the mouth of
April. Uy that time the gardeners hope
to have the lawns around the building
seeded, the walks arranged, and the set
ting complete for the second addition

BRITISH SAID TO USE
‘BARNACLES’ IN EYES
Altruist Called Mountain Climber, and
Trite a Kind of Fish, in Miss
Can you picture a well-groomed Eng
lishman tacking down the Strand through
the London fog with a barnacle in his
eye? Undoubtedly he would experience
rough sailing, but such a sight is a pos
sibility because a pupil in .Miss Edging
ton's English class has defined the word
“barnacle” to mean an English eye
Words with similar sounds caused
much difieulty in a vocabulary test given
sometime ago by Miss Edgington. To
judge from tile definitions given to some
of the words. Webster was entirely
wrong when he compiled his volume of
verbal information. For instance, an
“altruist” is a mountain climber; larynx
is a stone of somewhat precious nature;
“trite” is a kind of a fish, or the lining
of a cow’s stomach; “lave” is Irish for
leave, and an asterisk is an insect or a
The word “barnacle’ 'also has another
meaning, one which savors a little
more of salt water. Barnacle. pro
claims one student — a wearer of the
1024 style campus sombrero—is a sail
or’s glass for observing distant objects.
Likewise, the word “altruist” can be
used effectively to make an ambiguous
statement since it has several mean
ings. Besides being a mountain climber
an altruist is also one who does not be
lieve in future life.
Persons who peruse the literature of
Blackstone might be interested to know
that a clairvoyant is a lawyer; or if they
are not satisfied with that definition of
! the word, farther down the list of er
rors tabulated by Miss Edgington, clair
voyant is interpreted as pertaining to
STUDENT DANCE FRIDAY
Womans’ Building To Be Scene of First
Frolic of Spring Term.
“(Jet your dates, boys, for Friday
night’s student body danee. to be held
in the womans’ building.” So says John
Houston, chairman of the student dance
The dance will be the first to be held
in the new building and if present plans
of the committee are carried out it will
be quite an event. An eight piece or
chestra and a number of novel features
are among the distinctive points in the
Friday’s affair will be the first
dance of the spring term and will take
the place of the usual open house pro
gram. The dance will start promptly

The Organization Service Bureau is
the repository of the most complete data
with respect to organization methods.
This information is distributed by the
bureau through letters and the spoken
word, to commercial organizations.
Years spent in studying the subject
have qualified Mr. Brown to render ex
pert advice with respect to activities that
can successfully be undertaken, and those
that should be avoided by business
Mr. Brown is known as an author of
works on commercial organization. His
publication, “Building and Maintaining a
Local Chamber of Commerce.” has been
widely circulated. This work is princi
pally for the community which has no
commercial organization and is endeav
oring to establish one. It is of great
value, however, to communities seeking
to reorganize their chambers and o
those desiring to study the most ap
proved methods in organization structure
and membership building.
