Relief Worker Predicts New
Era For Eastern Race
Education and Care Given Tots
in Orphanages
If world powers will assure personal
safety and political equality to the
Armenian people in Turkey, future gen
erations will see these people rising far
above the Turks, both politically and
socially, is the opinion of Mrs- W. E.
Rambo, who for nearly two years was
actively engaged in Near East relief
work in Turkey. The Armenians will
be able to do this, she asserts, by rea
sons of their mental and moral super
“The Armenians are an industrious,
progressive people, very bright men
tally and fond of education, while the
Turk, on the other hand, is lazy and in
dolent—grossly selfish, and incapable
of any feeling of national pride. For
decades before the massacres of the
last few years, the Armenians wero the
very brains of Turkey,” Mrs. Rambo
explained. “They were leaders wher
ever they were, and were born money
Turks Are Infuriated
“Jealously on the part of the Turks
for their more industrious neighbors
was one of the real causes of the mas
sacres and outrages in Armenia. The
prosperity of the Armenians infuriated
the Turks, and they plotted their de
Mr. Rambo, in speaking of the work
of caring for Armenian children in
Near East Relief orphanages, cited the
case of a little 7-year-old boy who was
found by a Turk about 20 miles from
Alcxandropol. The boy had wondered
off the beaten highway, and when
found, was living among some sheep
belonging to the Turkish peasant. The
child was starving and was half dead
from fatigue. When questioned, he
could only say, “Take me to the place
where they care for little children.”
Gratitude Is Shown
The Turk took the boy to Alexandro
pol, where probably tho largest of the
Near East Relief orphanages iH loeatod.
Tho boy looked around at the orphan
ago, saw the children playing in the
yard, and seemed perfectly content.
“T have got to the place where they
care for little children,” was all that
he could say.
This boy, according to Mrs. Rambo,
is now ensconced in the orphanage, re
ceiving instruction from the competent
teachers employed there.
“The work that is being accomp
lishcd among these people is splendid,”
she said. At Alexandropol, alone, more
than IS,000 children are being cared for
and are being taught industrial work
there. They have shown grant apti
tude for this work and many of them
are remarkably brilliant. This orphan
age is caring for children between the
ages of IS and two years.

‘•I am in favor of abolishing Junior
Week end,” said Ogden Johnson, gen
eral chairman of last year's festivities,
in answer to the query of the curious
faculty member who asked “What
would the students think about abolish
tug Junior Week emit'' “We should
be slow about abolishing a tradition,"
continued Johnson," but when the
tradition grows so large and unwieldy
that it becomes more detrimental than
advantageous it does not justify itself
and should be abolished "
According to Johnson, the abolishing
of Junior Week end would mean eeon
omv to the student, raising of the
standard of the University and less
aocial activities. Johnson said that
Junior Week end is financed by the
students and that it is a burden on the
self supporting students. there are
from twenty to thirty people working
on committees nil of the time from
fall until the end of the festivities
during the fall the plans are laid and
during the two weeks immediately pre
ceding the Week-end the real work
starts and there is hardly any time for
anything else.
Of course, said Johnson, it would be
hard to abolish Junior Week-end un
less O. A. C. does the same; but I be
lieve that if Oregon takes the initiative
and shows the people of the state that
such a move would be beneficial both
to the student and to the institution
0. A. C. would have to follow.
“I am not in favor of abolishing Jun
ior Weekend,” said Marc Latham,
“and we can’t think about it until
O. A. C. does the same.” It is, con
tinued Latham, our greatest advertis
ing medium and it is during that time
that the campus gets its one thorough
“Personally, I do not approve the
abolishment of Junior Week-end,” said
Phil Brogan, “not only are the annual
spring festivities beneficial to the stu
dents as a needed recess, but Junior
Week-end is an advertising medium of
great import to the University. Visi
tors come from all parts of the state,
especially high school students, are
given a chance to see a side of schol
astic education very different from
the routine grind which many persons
expect of college life. If prospective
students obtain the wrong impression
from the spirit of frivolity it can easily
be unlearned when they enter the Uni
The interviews were nearly unani
mous in the opinion that Campus day
should be retained. One or two thought
that it would be better to have this
done earlier in the spring.
“ Whatever wc do about cutting down
the events of Junior Week-end we must
have the canoe fete,” said Lyle Bry
son, former secretary of the student
“Junior Week-end is our only oppor
tunity to show the campus to the high
school students of the state and I don’t
think that we should make any change
in the way we conduct it,” said Helen
Manning, former editor of the Orogana.
“I don’t think that it is too extrava
gant,” she said.
ft. J. H.’s opinions on campus affairs
Rre valued. His is that such a big
extravagant celebration should be done
away with. “I’d like to do away with
having guests. Students will come to
Oregon anyhow. We could have a
day’s celebration among ourselves,’’
he said.
“Students will come to Oregon just
the same, whether wo go to such
trouble and expense or not,” was Mae
Hallack's idea. Frank Carter believes
that the events are becoming such a
burden that they are more trouble than
they are worth. “Unloss,” ho said,
“the method of running things is
changed and some better method of
handling the crowds is devised I would
be in favor of abolishing the whole
thing. It is getting harder every year
to accommodate the guests.”
Neil Morfitt thinks that Junior
Week end is a big thing, although he
thinks that it is getting too expensive

Other Lectures of Note to be
Brought to Campus
For years faculty members have agi
tated bringing to the campus for a
week at a time noted scholars from
other universities or from abroad, with
the idea that they would act as a stim
ulous to faculty members and give
groups of interested students a chance
to meet and talk to prominent schol
ars. The faculty believe that the con
tributions these men could make from
their respective specialities would also
be of great benefit.
In aeeordanoe witn tnese puma „-yi
frod E. Zimmern, the noted Oxford
scholar will tie brought here for a week
in February or March, if sufficient in
terest is manifested on the part of fac
ulty members and students. Mr- Zim
mern is a Hellenist, but also belongs to
the younger group of English Liberals
and will doubtless speak on present day
national and international problems if
he conies to the campus. Mr. Zimmern
is an active member of the staff of the
Hound Table, the British quarterly, and
is an author of note, lie was an in
fluential war time lecturer, wrote the
"Greek Commonwealth,” and edited
and contributed to the “War and Demo
cracv. ”
Mr. Zimmern is being brought to the
northwest under the auspices of Reed
College and will be the guest of Presi
dent and Mrs, Bohol • while in Port
land. Hr. Scholr went east Sunday
and will meet Mr. Zimmern in Mon
treal. Mr- Zimmern will be under the
auspices of the history department if
he comes to the Pniversitv.
Other prominent men whom the fac

Reproduction One of 70 of
Kind in United States
The University of Oregon has re
cently been honored by the gift of one
of the 70 reproductions of the celebrated
Codice Trivulziano, published by Ulrico
Hoepli, Milan, and presented by the
Italians of America on the initiative of
Luigi Oarnovale, in commemoration of,
the six-hundreth anniversary of the
death of Dante. There are but 70 copies
in the United States, one of which is
in the library of the White House,
another in the Library of Congress, and
the others in the libraries of the chief
American universities.
The Oodric Trivulziano is the original
manuscript of the “ Divina (Jommedia ”,
transcribed by Her Francesco di Ser Na
do Barberi of Florence in 1337, sixteen
years after the death of Dante; and it j
is called Codice Trivulziano because it
belonged to the Princess Trivulzio of1
Milan, in whose possession it has been !
for the last century.
There is not a line of Dante’s hand
writing known to be in existence, not
even an autograph.
The maunscript which will be placed
on exhibition in the University library
is without a blemish, even the parchment
is in a wonderful state of preservation.
The illumination in design and color and
the beautiful semi-Gothic letters in which
it is written would alone make it famous
even if it were not identified with the
Divine Poet. The manuscript is not only
a beautiful work of art, but the Tuscan
in which it is engrossed is said to have
been copied from an original which came
from the poet himself.
The manuscript is connected with a
graceful tradition, says Professor F. S.
Dunn of the Latin department, ac
cording to which the copyist and illumin
ator, Ser Nardo, the father of a num
erous family, worked hard and put forth
his genius that he might be handsomely
rocompened and thus be able to furnish
his daughters with proper dowers.
There are but 350 copies of the Codice
Trivulziano in existence in the world to
day, and owing to the difficulties in
publishing, publishers announced that no
moro reproductions will l>e made in the

of steam extends through a tunnel
eight feet high to the Woman’s build

After going through the radiators,

returned once more to the boilers.
The plant itself, located at the rear
of the old school of commerce, supplies
heat and all water used except for
drinking purposes, to all the buildings.
The water nsed is obtained from the

Expect to Have Apparatus Installed
in Journalism Shack Soon
The Radio Club, recently organized
on the campus, is busy with the work of
installing a radio telegraph to take and
send news for the Emerald, a feature,
which when completed will greatly en
hance the efficiency of intercollegiate
news service, making it possible to re
ceive a greater amount of bulletins at
a faster rate and at reduced expense
to the paper.
The apparatus is being installed in
the Emerald annex, having formerly
been in Deady hall where it was of no
practical use. The aerials have already
been put up above the journalism
“shack,” but the receiving apparatus
has not yet been put in. According to
Garrett Lewis, acting president of the
club, it is expected that the apparatus
will be in readiness for use in Emerald
work by the end of the week.
