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,
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
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.

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

Political Scandal
Puts Campus in Air
Faculty and Students
Charged by Krier
At the very eve of the opening of
the spring political season a scandal
has been found in local political cir
cles that makes the president's cabin
et and members of congress look like
a Sunday school picnic. 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

food from Obak’s snow-white lunch

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.

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.
