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

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.
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

Proceeds from Candy Sale at “Raggedy
Man "Will Be Donated
The proceeds from the candy sale to
lie conducted by the V. W. C. 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.
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

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
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.”
Class of 1923 Plans Frolic for Friday
Evening; Costumes Are in Order,

mittee in charge of the ball. This
committee will report at the meeting

afternoon at 5 o ’clock in Professor
Howe's room in Villard hall. *
Since thet other classes are having

Letcher, and there will be absolutely
no dates.

Be Housed in New Structures

construction office. The new structure

fessor Avard Fairbanks has hopes of
moving in shortly after the first of
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.

on the way to completion. Work on
the ceiling of the last floor is to be
started immediately. When this is fin
ished the building will be completed

Bloody Faculty Scandal Out
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
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.
