Mondays ana Meetings
When Monday is wash day for the good housewife, she sel
dom allows interference from any agency, whatever its import
ance. But when Monday night is house meeting night for cam
pus organizations, who is to stand guardian of this blessed pre
rogative but the organizations themselves? Tradition, courtesy,
and the organizations’ acknowledged importance have won for
them recognition of this one evening in the week for their very
own. Though bald infringements upon their rights have been
not infrequently committed, the houses may have become vexed,
but they have not seen fit to cry out against the violators. Thus
is created the need for some good Samaritan to remonstrate in
their behalf.
If citation of specific instances is pardoned by those who
will suifei the itch of discomfort, be it known there were no
less than four infractions of said immutable right committed on
Monday ol: last week. In the first place a university musical
organization found it necessary to hold its practice during the
time that organizations had set aside for their meetings. With
all respect to his aesthetic purpose, an art professor drew two
houses away from their meetings that they might enjoy the
sight ot his art collection. 1 he school of business administra
tion, with all the serious intent in the world, scheduled a lecture
in connection with the meeting of retail merchants on the re
stricted night. In addition to this, two campus musicians ap
peared in recital on that same night, bringing the regretted total
to four events, none of which should have been scheduled on an
evening reserved for the holding of house meetings.
There is no ordinance making transgression of the houses’
privilege a misdemeanor. Perhaps these organizations d0 com
prise but half the representative student body. And perhaps
none of these interfering agencies would admit that they were
violating the rights of anybody. Though their intentions were
in all probability the best, they must stand indictment of serving
to disrupt the integrity of the living organizations of the cam
Organizations meet weekly for an avowed purpose. Such
meetings are for all members of the particular living units in
question. It is for the best interests of member and organiza
tion alike that attendance at weekly meetings be one hundred
per cent. Persons responsible for scheduling other functions
must realize that there will be members of the houses who will
want to attend. .Seldom are they in position to be present at
both occasions. Even four campus events attract many mem
bers of organizations. Each organization wants its member
ship represented at campus functions, for such organizations
have a vital interest in campus affairs. But each organization
alike realizes that releasing members for such purposes is done
at its own expense.
Mutual agreement of the living organizations to refuse ex
cuses from meetings has proven to no avail. Infractions of
their monopoly on Monday nights seem to be on the increase.
And when outside agencies observe that Monday night func
tions are not hindered hy house meetings, Monday night func
tions will continue to be held to the detriment of the houses.
The houses should seek to prevent recurrence of such of
fenses. Something should be done even if it requires a Univer
sity regulation.
The Weaker Sex?
Miss Oregon, rather more collectively than singly, has just
finished a strenuous week-end. Starting last Thursday noon,
' she began to enjoy her Washington's birthday vacation with a
matinee. In the evening her week-end program of dances
| started with a -formal of an honorary underclass society. Fri
day morning a breakfast dance routed her out, sleepy-eyed but
game, for another three or four hours of pleasure. Friday after
noon found her at the Anchorage dancing or watching her sis
; ter funsters cavorting in or on the mill race. The evening saw
i her, of course, at ^another formal.
Saturday morning was quiet and perhaps a horseback ride,
a stroll up to Spencer's butte or a shopping tour downtown
! sufficed to keep Miss Oregon amused. She didn’t mind a quiet
! morning, however, because the prospect of a matinee dance in
the afternoon and another formal at night kept her in good
Yes, and the all-day picnic, Sunday, was also very nice, thank
“Lots of fun and lots of people killed,” is a favorite campus
saying. You understand, of course, that the group of men that
were necessary for this generous program of social life of each
young lady were not exactly killed—just worn to a nice frazzle.
. Monday morning found the girls looking forward to another
week-end with real zest. The men who had survived were, of
course, subject to the usual Monday-morning class room slum
And still they talk about the weaker sex!

Heating System Being Constructed;
Plastering of Partitions
Almost Finished
Work on the construction of i
, steam-pipe conduits, partitions and
plastering is now well under way
in the new laboratory of the depart- i
ment of materials and astronomy, j
according to Prof. E. H. McAlis- I
tor, head of the department. The j
tearing down of the smoke stack
chimney of the old steam plant was j
completed several days ago. With
au optimistic smile, Professor Me- •
Atister said, "It will not be long!
now until my department will have
a new lab-home.”
"To lay the steam pipe conduits,
it will be necessary to rip up the
concrete flooring," ho said. “These
conduits are to convey the steam
into tin1 radiators to be used in
heating the laboratory.”
The 1,500 square feet of floor
i space is to be split up into three
rooms, each having about the same
amount of floor space. The plaster j
work and construction of the parti- ;
tions is now being carried on.
i Editorially Clipped |
I’ve always been sorry for Lot’s
vife. She’d never had a first-rate
hanee. Her neighbors weren’t what
hey should have been, and the town
is a whole was no place for a decent
voman. And now when it looked as
f she were going to have an oppor
uinity to make something of herself
ind redeem her past, she lost her
lerve, perhaps; the lure of the old
ife made her hesitate, and she
stopped and looked baek. Then it
vas too late. Her opportunity was
rone forever.
We were climbing Long’s Peak,
md Crosby was one of the most en
thusiastic members of the party at
the outset. It is a stiff steady pull
jf several miles over the long trail
ip to the bouIYler field, and then the
trail ends and the way leads across
irregular masses of sharp rock where
me must often pick his way cau
tiously and laboriously to the Key
Hole. The view is tremendous from
this point if the day is clear, a wide
vista of mountain ranges opening up
for a hundred miles or more, but the
summit of the mountain is still a
thousand feet above, and the more
hazardous part of the ascent is yet
to be traversed.
Crosby’s enthusiasm had begun to
wane, his courage ebbed as he looked
over the precipice to the yaw-ning
abyss below; his body was weary.
Like Lot’s wife, he hesitated and
looked back.
“I think I won’t try it any far
ther,” he said, “I don’t believe I
can make it, and I’m not sure it’s
worth the struggle.” He didn’t exactly
turn to a pillar of salt, but he sat
down and waited for our return, and
for want of a little effort and nerve
missed the most glorious view in the
I’ve seen many like him young and
old. They start upon a task with
interest and enthusiasm. Something
else attracts their attention, difficul
ties arise, the uninteresting or tho
unpleasant is to be met, and courage
fails them. They look back upon
the sordid and commonplace things
of the life which they have essayed
to leave, and opportunity vanishes;
they give up, and they miss some of
