The Friend of Friends
“Mother.” The word mukes hearts throb tenderly. It
stands alone, unmodified, meaning one thing, and one thing
alone. It means as much as the world itself to some of us.
Today is Mother’s Day on the campus. What a trifle it is
to set aside such a mere fraction of time in favor of our maternal
guardians, patient souls, all, ’neath whose watchful care we have
blossomed forth into young man and womanhood.
To them, we have changed. The sun has ever risen and set
in us. We have been the prides of households. We have beeu
the joys of families. We have been ideal. We have been per
And mothers have always been mothers. They are ever the
same. Love never ceasing, patience enduring, they have
moulded us as clay, ever striving to match the ideal, make us
infallible. As young mothers they have played with us, tpyed
with us, laughed at our infant innocence. Was it not Mother
who taught us our first steps? Who else was our childhood
As older mothers they directed, instructed, warned, and pun
ished for infranctions of rules. Our maturer habits were formed
under the guidance of Mother. She taught us chivalry, charac
ter, honesty, righteousness, and faith. When we erred, she
suffered, and hoped and trusted for our improvement. In our
success she was exultant. And her interest in our progress has
Now we are in college. For most of us some sacrifice has
been made to give us tlie incomparable advantages of educa
tion. Mother has been frugal. Her economies have been un
ending Who can say how many tilings she has denied herself
—for us? There can be no possible measurement of the unself
ishness that lias wrought our eventual elevation to the plane of
Let us then, if we truly sense the love-bond that ties her to
us, if we are aware how very greatly we are indebted to her,
if we are grateful to her for this life she has given us, turn for
a moment from our more worldly pursuits, and enjoy a day of
kindly companionship with Mother, or in loving thought of her.
The Woman s Building
About throe years ago, the Woman’s Building was dedicated
ns headquarters for the physical education of women students
and as a social center for all students, faculty and their friends.
It was the dream of those of us who helped to make the building
possible that within its walls the motto over the south fireplace
might forever he exemplified, “ITie habitat felicitas.”
The west wing of the building is the sole possession of the
women students for the procreation of their physical well-being.
The east wing of the building is purely for social purposes
for all students. The big central portion is shared by the girls
with all the University family for recreational purposes.
When we think of the Woman’s building, Alumni Hall comes
first to mind with its beauty, its dignity, its friendly welcome.
In all the dreams that centered in this spot, were thoughts of
the romances that would probably flourish in this harmonious,
lovely setting; of all the good music that would hallow its walls;
of the fine poetry and elevated thoughts that would be ex
pressed by those who held audience there; of the gentle remin
der to heed the Golden Iiule carved over the north fireplace of
all the social amenities that would be cultivated within its
So it is always a satisfaction to see the friendly groups, and
the couples, sitting about quietly conversing at all hours of the
day and evening; the impromptu musicals that are often given
for a small audience,—or none at all; and to feel that the stu
dents realize that this room is especially theirs.
When the Student Union comes to Oregon, it will no doubt
be largely used by the men students for their masculine ac
activities, and for student body headquarters. The girls will
share in its use, as the boys now share in the use of the Woman’s
building—but naturally here, as elsewhere, the Student Union
will specially be the possession of the men students—and rightly

The Knight’s jToast ,
The feast is o’er, and brimming wine
In lordly enp is seen to shine
Before each eager guest.
And silence fills the crowded hall
As deep as when the herald’s call
Thrills in the royal breast.
Then up rose the noble host
And smiling cried—“a toast—a toast
To all our ladies fair.
Here before all I pledge the name
Of Staunton’s proud and beauteous dame
The lady Gundamere.”
Then to his feet each gallant sprung
And joyous was the shout that rung
When Stanley gave the word.
Then every cup was raised on high,
And loud and joyous was the cry
Till Stanley’s voice was heard.
“Enough, enough,” he smiling said
And lowly bent his haughty head,
“That each should have his due.
Let every noble play his part
And pledge the lady of his heart
Like gallant knight and true.”
’Tis now St. Leon’s turn to rise.
On him are fixed those countless eyes.
A gallant knight is he.
Envied by some—admired by all,
Par-famed in ladies’ bower and hall,
The flower of chivalry.
St. Leon raised his kindling eye
And lifts the sparkling cup on high—
“I drink to one”—he said
Whose image never may depart
Beep graven on this grateful heart
Till memory be dead.”
To one whose love for me, shall last
When lighter passions long have passed
So holy ’tis, and true,
To one whose love hath longer dwelt—
More deeply fixed—more keenly felt
Than any pledged by you.”
Each guest up-started at the word
And laid his hand upon his sword
With fury flashing eye
And Stanley said—“We crave the name
Proud knight, of this most peerless dame
Whose love you count so high.”
St. Leon paused—as if he would
Not breath breath that name in careless mood
Thus lightly to .another.
Then bent his noble head, as though
Ti give that word the reverence due
And gently said—“My Mother.”
0 strong young treo
Stretching brown arms to sun
ing at breeze vagaries,
Perhaps the bees have laid within
And the sweet honey
Became your voice
Drip words as you sprawl in sun
T know women have sat
Beneath your shade.
Little, pink women
They have tasted
Fruit of your boughs.
Why do you still sit sprawling
Do you not see 1
Look at me!
1 am white and luscious.
1 cry you drop me

G. Stanley Hall was well known
by his writings. His book, “Adol
escence,” is regarded as a modern
classic. His “Educational Prob
lems,” and “Jesus the Christ in
the light of Psychology,” revealed
him to the world ns a great leader
blazing new trails in intellectual
forests. Those new trails are now
highways in the university world.
In all his writings, Dr. Hall
showed profound respect for that
which had taken form and nothing
was unrelated to the subject in
hand. His works are distinguished
by a characteristic readiness to
dissolve on contact with new truth,
in order to take new shape to meet
new needs. For this reason, his
works may not retain their present
form for an indefinite period. But
these very forces make it inevit
able that he should leave his mark
upon the generation in which he
lived. G. Stanley Hall's greatest
contribution is his influence upon
PHI BETA KAPPA ELECTS
University of Oklahoma—Twenty
six students and two faculty mem
bers of the university were elected
to membership in Phi Beta Kappa,
national scholastic honor society,
by the Oklahoma Alpha chapter.
The acting president of the uni
versity was elected to honorary
membership and also a professor of
history was elected as alumnus
member. Six of the “6 students
honored are members of the junior
class and 20 are members of the
senior class. The six juniors chosen
had averages between 90 to 100
per cent for their three years'
work in the university.
A special vesper service, whiek
has been prepared for Mothers’
day, will be held at the Methodist
Episcopal church, this afternoon,
at 3 o’clock. This will take the
place of the regular monthly Uni
versity vespers. Both University
glee clubs will take part, and Mme.
Rose McGrew and Roy Bryson will
contribute solos. Rev. H. W. Davis,
secretary of the campus Y. M. C.

WHEN STUDENTS CAME
Most admirable is the spirit of the
student body of the University of
Oregon who oversubscribed their
quota of the proposed $5,000,000 en
dowment fund. Admirable, too, was
their speed in action, and best of all,
their unbounded enthusiastic loyalty.
It was a great kickoff.
Doubtless the immediate effect will
be to stimulate the mightiest single
effort in the interest of the higher
education known to Oregon. The fu
ture of the University depends in
large measure on the success of the
j effort. The situation in Oregon dif
fers little from the situation of
states that have established univer
sities; the maximum limit of sup
port by taxation has been reached.
Without endowment, practically all
state universities must decide between
two alternatives—lowering the educa
tional standard or limiting the at
tendance. Both are equally repug
nant. Demand for the higher edu
cation grows stronger each year. A
way must be found to meet it.
Endowed colleges face the same sit
uation. The richest among them have
been scarcely able to meet the de
mands for the last few years, while
the moderately endowed colleges are
in despair. Their only hope lies in j
philanthropy and in real sacrifice
by alumni. Taking the most hopeful
view, financing the higher education
of American young men and women
has become a very serious problem
and each year it grows more serious.
