Commending The Student Council.
At last one body of the University has seen the light—the light
which beacons forth toward a greater University.
The student council, with judicious insight and acumen, has seen
an opportunity to bring the highest'type of young men and women
from the high schools into contact with this institution • an opportuni
ty which was offered by Greater Oregon executive committee and
ignored and refused by the organizations.
The student council, realizing the necessity of constructive action,
has salvaged an excellent plan from the wreck of prejudice. A three
day conference of high school student body presidents, editors of high
school publications, and representative women, will be here during
March. These young men and women are leaders of thought and
action in their respective schools; Oregon wishes them as students.
Under the inefficient Junior week-end system, still retained, it is
probable that many of them would not, and could not, visit the
campus. But the student council has saved the situation. It has
presented a constructive plan.
These leaders will gather on the campus to discuss their respec
tive problems. The student body presidents, editors, and representa
tive women will learn the lesson of Oregon Spirit; learn the greatness
of Oregon athletics, and imbibe something of the intellectual atmos
phere of Oregon. At the same time they will devise plans to make
their high school papers better from a journalistic standpoint; in
augurate means of increasing high school governmental efficiency;
and, as a whole, the conference will better conditions and activities
in the high schools of the state.
The student council will put the plan across. If it has the wisdom
to adopt a solution others have been too blind to see, it will have
the initiative to bring it to fruition.
Out For Battle.
And tonight comes the Aggie. Oregon will go out to battle the
Aggies, as Oregon haH always gone out to battle them and that old
Oregon Fight and Oregon Spirit will be on hand on this occasion
fighting the good fight, the clean fight, the sort of fight that is
glorious in victory or defeat.
Clean sportsmanship in the rooting section, clean fighters on the
floor,—then there can be a glorified contest. Of course we are out
to win, and win we will if we are not defeated by a superior team.
If we are defeated by a superior team, then we are out to admit that,
not alibi it.

the beautiful trees of Oregon,” said
Mrs. Meredith, in an interview yester
“I would rather talk about politics,”
she said, as she reluctantly spoke of
herself. “The biggest job T ever did
was ns a member of the first conven
tion called to draft a charter for the
city and county of Denver.” As presi
dent of this Elective Commission, she
redistricted the citv of Denver, thus

SOLAR SYSTEM IS TOPIC
OF CONDON CLUB MEETING
Five Hypotheses Discussed by
Ian Campbell in Talk
“Hypotheses concerning the Origin of
our Solar system” was the subject
upon which Ian Campbell addressed the
Condon club Wednesday evening in
Johnson hall. He discussed five hy
potheses: the La Placian, Pereival
Lowell’s hypothesis, the planetesimal
hypothesis of Chamberlain, the theory
of Arrhenius, and Belot’s vortex hy
pothesis. Slides were shown during the
The first mentioned, according to
which the solor system originally came
from a gaseous mass, is generally dis- i
carded, he explained. According to
Lowell, the world may be destroyed at
some time by a dark star traveling
through the solar system. Such an oc
currence, however, could be foretold by
astronomers 27 years before it hap
pened because of the disturbance cre
ated by the star among the outermost
According to Chamberlain’s hypothe
1 sis, the speaker continued, the solar
system originated in a spiral nebula
and the planets developed from this by
accretion, while Belot, a Frenchman,
thinks that it was originally a gaseous
vortex which struck a nebula and ae
I quired vibrations by the impact.
Gravitation is not the only force
which affects the universe, is the the
ory of Arrhenius. Mr. Campbell said.
There are also the repell'ant effects of
radiation. Arrhenius predicts that
there will be no more ice ages because
of the large amount of carbon dioxide
thrown off by the burning of so much
coal. Tf all carbon dioxide, which acts
as a blanket to keep the earth warm,
were remove from the air, the tempera
ture would fall 21 degrees.
Glenn Walklev spoke briefly on the
oil resources of Colombia, South Ameri
ca. His talk was based upon a report
made by Flfred Beck who spent six
months in the San Andes concession
The first oil wells, dug in 1907. were
1 of no value, he explained. They were
shallow with a low production because
of lack of expert geological investiga
, tion. The first oil well of any im
portance in Colombia was the Baranca
well, Mr. Walklev went on to say. The
well was drilled in 1918 and oil was
struck 2000 feet down. It is rumored
that the Standard Oil company has
boucht $40,000,000 interest in this con
There is probably a great deal of oil
all over Colombia, he concluded, but at
present there are no means of transpor
