Pete Laura The Hosts Assemble The forces are maneuvering for the great offensive. On the morning of April 23 will come the “zero hour.” Then the generous hosts will leap the parapet and drive toward the plan ned objective, the Student Union. Step by step the plans for the four-day drive are shaping themselves. Uadi hour, each minute brings an additional fea ture to be perfected. 1 he important dates for campaigning have been set. 1 he leaders have been named and are enlisting their workers. Ihe authorities are at work finding a suitable site where the magnificent structure is to stand. As the scheme is talked about, is thought of, and is written of, the concept of a student building grows increasingly attrac tive. The picture of comfortable rooms, lounges, parlors, dining halls, smoking and reading rooms, spacious ball rooms fits easily into the mind’s eye. And, oh, .how convenient it will be for the officers of the student body to have airy and attractive quarters where they can conduct their official business. There should be other features including billiard rooms for those who like the game, fireplaces for campus chatter, private rooms where symposiums may be held, places for gatherings of either social or intellectual nature. The cooperative store would have a real home where it could live under the shelter of student control. Aud some kind of a piggers’ haven might not be amiss a cozy balcony, say; or a quiet room where men and women could meet and have their chats and fights undisturbed, uninterrupted. 1 he values of an exclusive student building are certainly in* numerable. It should be a virtual hive of activity with students coming and going all day long, deriving the actual benefits for which the Union will have been built. But before this dream becomes a reality, something very important must take place. The money must be secured. Cer tain ones are entrusted with the task of raising the money. We are all entrusted with the privilege to give to the cause. It should be a privilege rare and enjoyable, one of which each student, no matter what his class, department, school, fraternity, sorority, elan, clique, or character should avail himself. J. W.P. “Skinny” Reid Hi«, lovable “Skinny" Reid is gone. His studio in the Music building is unutterably empty, and the dust has begun to gather on the keys of the instrument upon which, during the last days ol his brief lite, he must have expressed the achings of his weary soul. The campus saw "Skinny" every day and thought it knew him. He was responsive and affectionate and smiling. Who could know that within were many emotions, turbulent, and shaking the foundations of life? Who indeed knows what seethes within any of the exteriors of everyday familiarity! At the end, it was his love of his mother, ill beyond all re covery, which drove him to the black depths of discouragement ami foreboding. It was like "Skinny'’ that it should have been the love of his mother. What went on in his soul in those last minutes: or hours: as he sat on the hill in the night, no one shall know, in any event, whatever it was. it was high-minded. Never again with the skilled hands of the great-hearted musician reproduce the harmonies that kept his campus audi ences very still. Never again will he raise his voice with the Glee club in praise of his Alma mater. Never will “Mighty Oregon” sound out under his powerful touch at the close of assembly. ” These were the things of his life and his art; and they were fine. Yet after all somehow his art failed to save him with the gift of peace. ... • 4 ■ • A; R. 1 ’ _*_ ‘ *4 J_'..-• Campus Bulletin | ( -——-1-| i I Notices will be printed in this column I for two issues only- Copy must be | | in this office by 5:30 on the dAy j before it is to be published, end must j ' be limited to 20 words.

B. McDonald, known on the campus as “Mac,” is fcspeoially in terested in the coining showing of Ziegfeld’s “Sally” at the Heilig Monday night, not only because he is manager of the house which has billed the big attraction but because ho has heard so many good things about the show that he wants his stu dent friends to have a chance to ver ify them. Ziegfeld costumes, always famous, will be very much in evidence, he has promised the girls on the campus, and advance notices as to the charm of the chorus is said to have inter ested a number of the University men. Producers of the junior Vod-vil hope to add to their stock of ideas from ; the colorful coming attraction.

For these persons, the business staff of the Emerald is endeavoring to give opportunities in handling advertis ing accounts, methods of writing copy, and making market re searches, real experience in sales manship, besides the best methods in the advertising profession. Any one interested in such work may inquire at the manager’s office any afternoon,, and see about trying out for the staff. PSYCHOLOGY STUDENTS SEE CARLSON EXHIBIT As a practical study in color sen sation, the 9 o 'clock psychology class taught by Dr, Kimball Young visited the John F. Carlson exhibi tion of paintings in the gallery in the arts building yesterday morning. An impromptu talk to the class was given by Virgil O. Hafen. profes sor of fine arts, at the request of Dr. Young. “There is something about the paintings to make one homesick when he leaves them,” Professor Ilafen said. “There is something personal about them.” Ho spoke of the artist's use of broken color to obtain the effect of out of doors. This method of paint ing was begun in England by the out door impressionists. The effect is best at a certain distance. This is true, he said, of “The First Beam,” with the early rays of the sun piercing the gray mists of morning. Y. W. MEETING TO BE TUESDAY AFTERNOON Installation ceremonies for the 1924-25 Y. W. C.

Prominent men declare that some of our local political buds would make Roy Gard ner feel like a philanthropist, and the once famous Jesse James resign from the train robbers’ union. Men of all ages have had tenden cies to use fair means and foul in the effort to assume office, but never before has this campus been so com pletely over-run by the evils of the spoils system. The scandal includes men and wo men, faculty members and students, janitors and landscape gardners; even the Pioneer is carrying a gun. Hund reds of local residents are shaking in their boots, fearing the publicity that this exposure is going to make of their reputations. What instruct ors will be left to carry on the work of higher education next year is a question, and it is declared that doz ens of this year’s seniors have ad mitted that they will not be back next year. The truth became known recently Dispenses Joy! Mount the Moot— He’ll Do His Stuff You are just like the rest of us, you want good food when you want it. Believe us, you can learn about food from Obak’s snow-white lunch counter. Men that really like to eat, for the sake of either entertainment or nourishment, will get more pure, unadulterated fun and satisfaction out of Obak’s food than did the young fellow that pulled the plum out of the Christmas pie—and we don’t mean possibly. when it was noted that hundreds of students and faculty members left the city on March 19. Why did they leave? Where did they go? How and why? These are the questions that the Krier demands explanation to. Eugene Steam Laundry The Logical Place to Send Your Laundry 1 78 8th Avenue Phone 123 EDMUND HADLEY 1656-1742 Son of a London soap-boiler who became Astronomer Royal. At the age of 20 headed an expedition to chart the stars of the Southern hemisphere. Financed and handled the printing of Newton’s immortal Principia. As spectacular as a comet has been the world’s electrical devel opment. By continuous scientific research the General Electric Com pany has accelerated this development and has become a leader in the industry. The comet came back The great comet that was seen by William of Normandy returned to our skies in 1910 on its eleventh visit since the Conquest Astronomers knew when it would appear, and the exact spot in the sky where it would first be visible. Edmund Halley’s mathematical calcula tion of the great orbit of this 76-year vis itor—his scientific proof that comets are part of our solar system—was a brilliant application of the then unpublished Prin cipia of his friend Sir Isaac Newton. The laws of motion that Newton and Halley proved to govern the movements of a comet are used by scientists in the Research Laboratories of the General Elec tric Company to determine the orbit of electrons in vacuum tubes.
