Some Needed Stimulus
The free Intellectual Activities committee in its meeting a
few days ago discussed the feasibility and the desirability of
bringing eminent scholars and speakers to the University of
In considering the question such names were brought up as
that of Vilhjalmur Stefansson, whom one instantly pictures as
a bulky figure wrapped in heavy furs and skins, trudging across
wfoite polar wastes, Or forcing a fragile vessel through menacing
iceflows and one feels the, tenacity and set purpose displayed in
such a career.
And calling to mind the name of David Starr Jordan one
visions the man with his prophetic vision of World Disarmament
—a dreamer perhaps, but what a dream! Dr. Jordan, then
active president of Leland Stanford Jr., University, undoubt
edly startled the world with his idea of world peace, and helped
to stir it to action of lasting benefit to humanity.
It is by men of this type that one is inspired with the urge
to do. Such men as these who have passed through the fire of
trial and error, and who have the sympathy of past experience
coupled with the superiority of the first-rate mind, cannot help
but kindle in the student a spark of inspiration.
Too few of the present generation come under the influence
of the well-informed teacher, scholar or intellectual leader—an
influence which makes itself felt above the din of specialization
—of taking this course and that. Rather should the student
choose this scholar or that speaker who can give him the mental
stimulation so necessary to the preservation of the future.

it used to be.
SEVENTY BEST BOOKS
PUT ON SHELDON SHELF
Seventy of the best books in the
library are collected and arranged
on the Sheldon shelf—so named be
cause it was largely from Dean
Sheldon that the idea came. Tho
books are not in the-nature of refer
ence books or novels but rather are
classed among the outside reading
books of a more serious nature.
Regardless of the fact that these
nre seven-day books, ns many as
10 or 15 are signed ahead for the
more popular ones. The collection
was started last spring and the first
day about half were taken out,
while now there are seldom more
than 15 to be found on the shelf.
Those moBt in demand are:
“Countries of the Mind,” Murry;
“The Latin Genius,” France; “The
Creative Life,” I.ewisohn; “Con
temporary Portraits,” Harris;
■“Modern Painting,” Wright; “Ari
•el,—Life of Shelley,” Muurois;
‘ In the Land of Art,” Blaseo Iban
vz; “Modern Kssays,” Morlev;
“Life and Letters of Emily Dick
inson,” Hiunchi; and “A Few Figs
from Thistles,” Millay.

BIG ORDER Fiji ROOMS
GIVEN TO COMMITTEE
Accommodations Sought for
A committee of five, under the
chairmanship of Harold Lundberg,
is trying to find accommodations
for 2500 people, for Homecoming.
They have about 250 rooms lined
up, but they need a good many
more and wish to appeal to the
townspeople of Eugene to come to
their aid. Any one who has a room
to offer is asked to call Mrs. Don
nelly at the Y. M. C. A. hut, 1085,
before Saturday of this week. One
dollar a night is the price that will
bo given for the rooms. “We must
have the whole-hearted cooperation
of every resident in Eugene,” says
Harold Lundberg. “We are going
to do everything possible to make
our ‘alums’ feel that they are wel
come, and wo can’t do this unless
we can give them a place to stay.
We are depending on the people of
Eugene to help us. ’ ’
Besides the 2500 ‘alums’ there
will be approximately 1000 stu
dents from Washington. These
people are to be taken care of by
the different living organizations
on the campus’.

ing just what courses each senior

OPEN TO WEST POINT
Examinations to be Passed
By All Applicants
1 “There are three appointments
I open to West Point for the state of
Oregon,” said Capt. F. L. Culin, at
| the R. O. T. C. headquarters yes
I terday. “Two of the appointments
I are in the hands of representative
I Elton Watkins of the third Oregon
district. The other appointment is
j in the hands of U. 8. Senator B. N.
Stanfield,” continued the captain.
It is the custom of the govern
ment to hold competitive examina
tions once during each year. The
applicants must be between the
ages of 17 and 22, and citizens of
the United States. A principal and
two alternates are appointed.
This gives more than one man i
chance for each appointment. Ii
the principal fails in the examina
tion the first alternate is accepted
providing he passes the physical
examination. If both men fail, the
second alternate is appointed. Ii
this manner there will be an oppor
tunity for nine candidates—threi
men to each appointment. The R
O. T. C. requests men who are in
terested to call at headquarters.
