Phi Beta Kappa
The recognition of the University of Oregon by Phi Beta Kappa
not only shows that a high standard of scholarship has been main
tained, hnt it shows that the best and the most conservative colleges
and universities of the country know of Oregon’s record. The en
trance of Phi Beta Kappa will bind the University to a group of col
leges of the highest standing.
Since 1916 the honorary scholastic society has been watching
the University of Oregon. Phi Beta Kappa is conservative and even
with Oregon’s ever higher standards wanted to he sure. The high
;ype of work which Oregon students were doing was apparent, hut the
society waited to see if it could he maintained. It was not only main
tained hut made higher. The recognition has come.
The prestige which will come to the University of Oregon through
the presence of Phi Beta Kappa will he more than seems evident at
first. The installation of the chapter here, the first in the state, will
bring with it something which will combine eastern and western cul
ture. Western educational practicality will he leavened by something
of the eastern idea which seeds to make education more of an end
in itself. A little of this old classical influence seems fortunate.
Not every student can hope to attain membership hut there is
always the stimulus which makes for higher scholarship. With the
presence of honorary societies in the professional and business schools,
before the news of the recognition came tin- emphasis seemed more
on the technical. Now the liberal arts are placed on the same basis
and a tangible and immediate reward for hard study is provided.
With the stimulus which is now provided the efforts to keep the
scholastic record of the University on the same high plane should he
simplified. The hardest part of the fight is over. And the University
and the state of Oregon owes a debt to members of Phi Beta Kappa
on the faculty and to the University Honor Society for the work which
they have done.
Today the first assembly of the year will be held in the Woman’s
building. President Campbell and Lamar Tooze, head of the endow
ment campaign, are to explain what is to be done, and it is the
duty of every student in the University to be there. To have a knowl
edge of what the University is doing students must attend assemblies.
It is a good habit to get into and the first assembly is the most im
portant of the year.
The little green cap makes its appearance today and will be the
official headgear of the first-year men until next spring. The par
ade this afternoon is as much a part of the education of an Oregon
student as mathematics and latin. Don’t miss it.
