PhoaeB Easiness Manager__961 Editor---- ■ --656 Daily News Editor This Issus Night Editor This Issue Ben Maxwell Ed Valitchka A Sense of the Present “in tlie reign of tlie great French emperor there lived a woman within twenty miles of Paris who had never heard of Napoleon. Possibly she lived a happier and more peaceful life because she had never heard of him, but at the same time one cannot help feeling sorry for that woman. Part of life had escaped her. She could have had little of the feeling of the epoch in which she lived. She did rot sense the times.” This woman was merely typical of hundreds of her own times, and of hundreds of the present age. Of course it is really impossible for anyone to fully grasp the full significance of his own epoch. But there are countless numbers who believe that important things have already been chronciled by the historian, and that there is nothing more to learn until a new volume of history is published. During the war a well known clergyman said, “These are terrible times, but 1 am glad that I am living in them. So much history is being made now.” If more people could realize that all history is not in the histories, the relation of past history to present history •would be more easily understood. People could more easily recognize history as it is being made before their eyes. One function of a college education is training in the correlation of the past to the present. Therefore the criticism that students do not read the papers and current informative literature is serious. Unless college students take advantage of every opportunity to in form themselves of this phase they are wasting valuable opportunities. The message which J. Stitt Wilson brought to the campus should not be forgotten. Unless college students avail themselves of the op portunity to know what is going on, how are they to prove themselves intellectual leaders in their communities? The history which is being made is tremendously more important to the world than that which was made at the time of Napoleon. The college is not an isolated unit, but lias its place in the general scheme of life. That professor is the best teacher who sees the col lege in its relation to tlie whole of which it is a part. Unless college men and women recognize the value of that sense of the present, they will be unable to assume their proper places, and the college will fail to assume its proper place in the scheme of life. It Will Be Appreciated i - Yesterday afternoon when it was bright and sunny outside, half a dozen patients in the University infirmary were lying in their cots gloomily contemplating their temporary imprisonment. Although it seemed to the world that spring had come, none of the spirit was transferred to those inside. Just then the door opened and Dean Straub came in. In his characteristic manner, he soon had the whole room chuckling. The gloom disappeared. The infirmary maintains visit ing hours every afternoon. UNIVERSITY POSTOFFICE DOES RUSHING BUSINESS Mall and Express Are Handled Through Department; Letters Registered and Insured; Stamps Sold Two truck loads, daily, of University mail, express and supplies, delivered to the eampus, passes through the Uni versity postoffiee, which is maintained primarily for the accommodation of fac ulty and students. University mail is sent from the city postoffiee to the eampus office where it is put on trucks and distributed. The principle bulk, such as first class mail, parcels, and magazines, is deliver ed in the morning, leaving less for the afternoon distribution. Outgoing mail is sent from the postoffiee at 2:30 and 5:00 every afternoon. As this is not a government postoffiee money orders cannot be issued, al though stamps are sold and mail can be registered and insured. Besides members of Thacher Cottage there are at present only four students who have mail sent to geueral delivery. The postoffiee has a student and faculty directory, made out by the registrar’s ol'liee, and all mail that conies address ed only to the University of Oregon is corroctlv addressed and delivered. The University poet office was for merly situated where Quartz hall is now, behind the Administration build ing. The present building on Univer sity street was opened the middle of September. 11.

A. during the three performances of the “Raggedy Man,” January 24, 25 and 26, will be sent to the relief of the Association at Astoria, it was decided at the regular meeting of Y. W. C. A. council yester day afternoon. It is expected that this fact will stim ulate the sales, since the Astoria cause is one very near home and of especial interest to many of the students. 146 NEW STUDENTS THIS TERM One hundred forty-six new students have registered in the University this term, according to the latest report from the Registrar's office. TTie total regis ration will probably be less than it was last term, however, because of the number >f last term students who. for various reasons, did not come back. No definite figures have been compiled as to the lumber registered, since registration does tiot close until January 22, and students ire registering every day. The scholastic standings of meu and \ omen's houses will be published within Free weeks, according to the Registrar, j HlblUKIAN m\\ COMPLETES PLAN System of Filing Stories from Emerald Has Been Started; Activities Reviewed The executive committee of the His- j torian staff of the University has com pleted a definite outline of activity, which it feels will place the Historian’s office in a position to be of greater ser vice to the University than it has ever been. Margaret Scott, University historian, is head of the committee. Other mem bers are Ethel Wheeler, Mary Lou Bur ton and Edwin Fraser. The thing that is felt will be of greatest value is a card catalog system of Emerald stories, which will be in stalled. Under this system, which is to be comprehensive and which will cover all important material printed in the Emerald, the stories will be classified under general heads such as assemblies, athletics, organizations, society, and the title and date of the stories wlil (be given. All copies of the Emerald be ginning with last term and continuing through the year will be kept, and at the end of each year will be bound and be placed on file permanently so they may be used for reference. Heretofore, various copies of the Em erald have been clipped and the stories kpt, but not in any definite organized form, so that as reference they have proved of little value. In 1919 scrap books of Emerald stories were started but were discontinued. Sport Data Collected A second feature, in charge of Ed win Eraser, is tr> be the collection of data relating to intercollegiate athletic contests of past years. This data will be classified according to the schools with which Oregon has contested. There is at present no source on the campus from which such information may be obtained, and this undertaking, which is a big one, will enable anyone who is interested to find out against whom Oregon has played, what the results were, and who the contestants \^ere, as far as it will be possible to ascertain such information. A survey of campus activities is a third feature of the changes that are Hieing made. A directory will be com piled from the data collected giving the name of each organization, its pur pose, officers for the year, and mem bership if it is small. As no such sys tem exists on the campus at the present time, it is believed that this undertak ing will prove especially helpful to the Women’s League in its attmpt to car ry out the point system. All organiza tions are urged to cooperate with Au gusta DeWitt and Mary Clerin, who are carrying on the survey. Later in the year secretaries of the respective organizations will be asked to turn in a history of the activities carried during the year, and these will be filed. Duplicates Avoided . “The idea of the whole thing,” said Miss Scott, “is to avoid duplicating any material of a historical nature which is at present organized on the campus, and to organize material so that it will be accessible for public use. As soon as wTe succeed in doing a little renovating and get the wrork well under way we hope the students will take ad vantage of the opportunity, and come to our office in the library to get in formation. We ask the support and cooperation of the student body and be lieve w-hat we are attempting will prove of practical value to them and to fu ture students.” SENIORS WILL CELEBRATE AT MASQUERADE PARTY Class of 1923 Plans Frolic for Friday Evening; Costumes Are in Order, Dates Are Not Next Friday evening, the class of 1923 will while away the hours from eight o 'clock until midnight with a masquerade ball. No dates will be per mitted, and masks and costumes will be in order, said Imogene Letcher, vice president of the class. The place has not been decided upon definitely as yet. Ole Larson, Del Oberteuffer, Alice Tomkins and Inez King have been ap pointed by Miss Letcher as the com mittee in charge of the ball. This committee will report at the meeting of the class which will be held Monday afternoon at 5 o ’clock in Professor Howe's room in Villard hall. * Since thet other classes are having dances or parties the same evening, it is expcted that the senior class will be present in full force, said Miss Letcher, and there will be absolutely no dates. LAST REID FILM TO BE SHOWN NEXT WEEK James Cruze, the Paramount director who recently triumphed with "The Old Homestead,” directed “Thirty Days,” Wallace Beid’s latest, which will be on view at the Bex theater next Mon day and Tuesday.

BUILDINGS MAKE PROGRESS Art and Journalism Work Will Soon Be Housed in New Structures The new art building will probably be ready for occupation in two weeks’ time, according to word received at the construction office. The new structure is now being plastered inside and Pro fessor Avard Fairbanks has hopes of moving in shortly after the first of February. The stucco will not be put on the out side of the building until spring, Mr. Hanna says, because the present frosts would crack it badly.

Number 7 Bloody Faculty Scandal Out NEXT WEEK ***FOR MEN ONLY*** ***FOR MEN ONLY*** There are only two things in this world that student’s are reported to de test. It seems to be a hold-over from their kniekerbocker and pigtail days. No matter how much they hate these activities they’re necessary functions to all human life, activities indulged in nearly every twenty and four hours— namely, getting up in the morning and going to bed with the stars. How true this report may or may not be we are sure that there is one other predicament that is much more appalling and that is to have no place where you and your brother can hide yourselves from the howling mob of humanity for a few moments of real masculine fellow ship. We feel that such a state of affairs is about as discouraging as any we know of, unless it be the supreme penalty of bigamy—having two mothers-in-law. Throughout the ages man has cried out for companionship and sport with fellows of his own rank. Napoleon want ed to mix with real company and had to kill off half the population of France and the rest of Europe in order to arouse the sporting blood and friendship of the other big men in Europe. He played EL—ba with his own future by holding five aces too many times and thus worked himself out of all the fun he had in the first place. If Napoleon had been as fortunate as any one of the Oregon mob he could have taken all the crowned gang down to OBAKS, set them up to a real feed at the Snow White luncheonette, allowed them to walk away with a few games of billiards, passed out the cigars and in the end would have been setting pretty with the world. Oon't let the old ghost of ‘‘ no place to go” be your Waterloo—-bring the gang down to OBAK'S. ‘‘Nothing to do” has been the big slogan that has filled the ranks of the hobo army, it has filled our jails and poor farms. So beware of the bug that saps the life of an afternoon of pleasure. A good game of billiards, a few rounds of pool, a bull fest over good cigars, listen ing to good music or a real, “home made.” meal if you are hungry are all forms of recreation to be found no place else by the average man than at OBAK’S. What is sadder than a man who has lost all his friends? Nothing that we know of than a man who is working for his board who loses his appetite. We shudder to think how much he would be out if he happened to be working for our Snow White Luncheonette.
