Hall Lanes Called ‘Cay White Way’
Was it not on the eve of Waterloo,
that “bright shone the lights o’er fair
women and brave men’’? And was it
not by the light of flickering wall
lamps in Whitehall palace, that Charles
I went to his prison cell from the court
on the eve of his execution? And did
not James II, two generations later es
cape from the same place by tin- light
of the same lamps, to his boat on the
Thames, in which iie escaped to the
friendly coast of France?
Tall men and grenadiers, march by the
light of the lamps on the Oregon campus.
Lights. What lights? The lights which
cast their radiance over the tightly
closed front entrances of the Oregon
building and the .School of Business
Administration, in the sma'l hours when
the moon rides silently in the -ky, and
the frost seUlis on the grass of the
Oregon campus. Watch them some
And other lights . . . .the light along
the Deady walk, always grateful to the
late traveller because of the rudianco it
casts over the path, darkenod by the
double row of Douglas firs. The light
over the Seal in the sidewalk, and on the
porches of old Villard! The light in
front of the library. Some students wero
considering taking that light out and
restoring the darkness to tho library
steps, as it wits too wise for them. They
put that light too high.
Then, there nro tho lights in front of
the Administration building. They fairly
breath academic administration in their
copper-cast dignity. A student prank
adorning them with college cap and gown
would not go far wrong.
Far off in the south the lighth of tho
Education building glow like twin stars,
and the bright high hung lights of
Friendly hall light tho highway opposite
And then there are probably tho most
vehemently condemned lights on the cam
pus.those which turned the lanes
leading to the women’s halls of residence,
into small but efficient gay white ways I
Lights and that’s all.

“Children of Beauty”
Oh, Light of Truth, by other name of
How may thy twin hand maidens,
Joy of Life and Love of Work,
Abide within the hearts of men,
Save thou art welcome there!
If Strife and Avarice usurp their place,
Or Unconcern and Insincerity,
Thy face shall hidden be within the
Of cruel curtains woven of man’s self
Thy grace shall be obscured by blurring
Of animosities—thy form remain un
Shall then not Joy, and Love of Work
Hut if Man makes of thee a friend,
I Or woos thee as a lover might,
Thy smiles will make of Life, a Joy;
Of Work, a pleasant task.
| For these, like foster parents of thy
I Hha.ll shape its skill and build its qual
Around the need it shall fulfill.
Ilf that be common service to Mankind,!
With strength and fine simplicity will
they endow it;
He it to bear fair gifts unto the Soul,
Then, loveliness will they impart.
The role of one may humble be, an
Yet they shall brothers, sisters, be—
