The New Homecoming
Student and alumni Homecoming officials are doing a great piece
of work in preparation for next week’s home-again gathering. They
are to be complimented upon the manner in which they threw over
board certain worthless parts of the usual program and changed
things in such a way that the 1924 festivities will probably surpass
those of past years in quality as well as in attendance.
No longer are the graduates and ex-students to be mere onlookers
in a series of events planned by, and to a great extent for, students.
They are to be given an active part in the actual program of the week
end as well as in the early preparations.
The alumni office reports more Homecoming inquiries than ever
before and great interest in the novel adoption ceremonies which
were put into effect last year. Literally hundreds of alumni of other
institutions will assemble on the Oregon campus and take part in the
event. The loyalty they will feel for Oregon will be second only to
that for their respective alma maters and will be a factor which will
create much real friendship toward this institution.
“Unite to fight for Oregon’’—that’s. the idea.
Oregon’s freshman men have not learned one important lesson]
and the evidence of their lack of knowledge was very evident at
Thursday’s assembly. Respect for our University songs has made it
traditional that the student body remain standing during the singing
of the first stanza of “Mighty Oregon.’’ Departure from the hall is
supposed to begin with the line, “And then we’ll march, march on
down the field—.’’ The impressiveness of the singing was ruined by
the noisy breakup of the boys in the gallery. Besides, the crowding
ahead of freshmen before upperclassmen is not entirely fitting.
The annual sophomore informal will be held tonight with the usual
rush of preparing for the event. Next week another group of stu
dents will sacrifice their time to prepare for the Homecoming dance.]
The scheduling of two major social events within so short a period of
time was unwise to say the least.
The Other Campus
FLASH VIEWS OF THE DOINGS
OF COLLEGE FOLK ELSEWHERE
Five University of Washington boys
are earning their way through college
as taxi drivers for Seattle auto trans
portation companies. A number of stu
dents are also employed as chauffeurs
in private families.
Owing to the numerous mistakes
made in registration of previous years,
the registrar of the University of Cin
cinnati requires a one-inch photograph
of each student.
Due to the fact that the ballots cast
in the election of junior class offi- :
cers last week at Wisconsin far out- ,
numbered the voters, a new election
is to be held this week.

many of the faculty.
Faculty men can make use of the

If enough interest is shown among the

aside an hour when they can get indi

use the net at all times.

J-JERE the architects envisioned a picture, saw the modern office
x x building in terms of the great art of the Middle Ages—and the
result is a demonstration that the utilitarian structure, the modern office
building of commerce may be as picturesque as it is practical. Vision,
imagination, courage and practical ingenuity in stylistic adaptation
have enabled the architects of this country to astonish the world with
their achievements of today and their promise of tomorrow.
Certainly modern invention—modern engineering skill and organiza
tion, will prove more than equal to the demands of the architecture

Offices in all Principal Cities of the World
at the Bidding of the Driver
Cjf When you are on the open road, speeding
through villages, and past countryside,—carried
along by the powerful motor that responds
splendidly to your slightest whim,—sweeping
up hills, climbing to a faster speed or gliding
along quieth'—always without the slightest ef
fort—then comes the realization that Nash leads
the world in motor car value.
•jf Such performance can be gained only by the
overhead valve system and Nash engineers have
perfected this to the last degree. In the over
head arrangement, the combustion chamber,
being placed directly over the piston, can be
made more compact and of smaller area than is
possible in the L head or T head designs. In
short, it means more power for less gasoline.
Nash goes beyond this. The valve mechanism is
automaitcally lubricated, eliminating any metal
with metal contact. The entire motor is encased,
keeping it free from dust and any foreign sub
