A New Term
'T'HE START of a new term. A fresli chance to display what
one can do—and what one cannot do. That is—for those
who survived the sweeping arc of the scythe and could finish
a perusal of the “scandal sheet’’ with a smile illuminating the
Many resolutions to study this term—hard—really. And
many who believe they will carry out those resolutions.—
really. Perhaps they will. The winter term is a good one to
work in. There are fewer diversions. The mill race does not
call as it will in the spring. The rush and crush of the innum
erable activities which fill the fall will not be so numbing.

There are lots of interesting and intriguing books in the
library to pass a rainy evening with. Books that are not assigned
for class work but which will furnish valuable and desirable

Books which will give a feeling that some of the empty corners
of the “garret” are a little better furnished than before. And
the added confidence that comes of that fact.

Some of the faces familiar last term are gone. Some of the

GIFT OF LAND MADE
A gift of an 88-acre tract of land
valued at $100,000 was paade to the
University of Oregon school of
medicine by the late C. S. Jackson,
Mrs. Jackson and Phillip L. Jack
son of Portland.
The tract adjoins the present
campus of the medical school on
Marquam Hill, Portland^ IJnder
the terms of the .gift, the land is
to be used for medical school pur
poses, and is dedicated to the sick
and crippled, to the recreation of
the public and the play of children.
The tract of 88 acres given by the
Jacksons, added to the 20 acres
presented to the medical school in
1914 by the Oregon-Washington
Railroad and Navigation company,
gives the institution a campus of
108 acres within a mile and a half
of the Multnomah county court
“The gift assures—and it was
much needed—adequate room for
expansion of the medical school,”
aid Dean Biehard B. Dillehunt,
and will do much to encourage
ealth advancement and medical
esearch in the state.”
