A Day to Honor
The fact that seven years ago today the United States
emerged from a Great War is cause for every one to pause and
consider the significancec of this anniversary.
That day, November 11, 1018, was the occasion of the most
magnificent7,celebration the nation has ever experienced. Every
omfremembers how the dispatches of allied successes threw the
nation into frenzied joy. With the signing of the armistice
one hundred million people found themselves m a wild carnival
To many the cessation of hostilities meant victory over the
enemy The allies, with the timely aid of America had tri
umphed over the enemy; the spoils of war were to be,theirs;
^ Others felt a bit differently. They knew that no nation
can emerge a winner by fighting a bitter war; and while su
premely happy that our nation had not become vanquishe ,
they were thankful far more that peace had been restored Some
of them, too, paused to honor those that had fallen, and to give
thanks that no more should be lost. .
In the period that has passed since that day America has
reaped the fruits of peace. The nation has passed through an
eventful but withal a prosperous succession of years, a post war
extravagance soon giving way to a discouraging depression, but
that too soon drawing away. Today America stands, the envy
of all nations. , ,, ,, .,.
Yet America is not without her problems—problems that
are sorely perplexing her leaders. When young America con
siders the bountiful fortunes that have been bestowed upon her
and considers also the work to be done, she may well pause on
this anniversary of her newest freedom to take cognizance of
her responsibility, and to honor those men and women that have
made this anniversary possible.
Oregon’s Graduate Manager
Probably the worst job around a university is that of grad
uate manager of student activities. Few jobs can compare ■with
that one for measily, insignificant, perplexing details that drive
a man well nigh to distraction. No one around a university
loves the graduate manager because he is the one that always
must tell the impatient mob that it can’t have what it oughn’t
to have have. He holds the student body purse strings and it’s
a royal fight for him to> keep three thousand students and many
times more alumni from scattering wride the gold pieces.
The fact that Jack W. Benefiel is chairman of a committee
to arrange the East versus West football game at the Pasadena
New Year’s Tournament of Roses, and as such will have charge
of arrangements for the game including the selection of the
Western representative team, brings to mind that Oregon has
a very capable executive for her graduate manager. Mr. Bene
fiel is to be congratulated on the trust implied by his appoint

THE PRIZE WINNER
Randall Jones, erstwhile Student
Body president, law student and
dog-fancier, is awarded this antique
teakwood desk, hand-carved with
elaborate Chinese dragons as shown
in the illustration and worthy of
guarding carefully valuable papers
and old love letters. We feel that
Randall, who is said to be writing
a book on his experiences and nar

last position on the campus, is in
need of so useful and beautiful a
piece of furniture as this, and fur
thermore we realize that as Randall
has taken upon himself a spouse, he
will welcome such a gift as an aid in
furnishing his new home.

It is advisable that the literary
student committee should exert sin

campus. He will be more valuable
to our local writers than were Lind

with the buoyancy of youth and
sparkling lyricism. Especially is
Vinal interested in fostering the po

several poems by Margaret Skavlan,
Marie Stewart and Walter Kidd,
along with many other state poets.

At the last meeting of the Inter
Fraternity Council, a committee was
appointed to . study the situation
of - rushing as it now exists in fra
ternities here, and to report on
changes that seem advisable.
“Very few rules are used, here,”
stated Dean Walker, faculty adviser
to the council. “Heretofore rules
have been based mostly on the honor
system, but now that the number of
fraternities has increased consider
ably many think that more strin
gent rules should be enforced.”
Carlton Spencer, registrar, ex
plained the present system of fra
ternity grading and the system of
withdrawing to the council and
presented it to the members for
vote. It .was decided to continue
the present system as no better one
could be suggested.
A permanent program committee
was also created to arrange a defin
ite program for each meeting and
thus enable the council to discuss
matters of importance to the school
and students at every meeting.
This will enable the Inter-Frater
nity Council to cover a greater
field of activity during the year.
EDUCATION CLUB TO MEET
The Education club will hold a
meeting next Thursday night. Prof.
P. S. Spencer will speak on an ex
haustive study in arithmetic, and
C. J. Shambaugh, a graduate stu
dent completing master degree work
this term, will have for his topic,
“Vocabularies of Ancient Histories
Used in High Schools.” Both of
these men have highly interesting
speeches prepared and all members
of the club should be present.

The "Prof” may not admit it
—but it’s true
HE probably will not tell you that clean, neat, typewritten
work brings better marks—but it does—and the reason is
obvious. It relieves him of that tedious task of deciphering
longhand, and keeps him in perfect “reading humor”. Then
too, you'll find the New Remington Portable a great time-saver
in compiling notes and keeping up with your correspondence.
Students prefer the New Remington Portable because it is
the lightest, smallest, and most compact of all standard key
board portables. It fits in a case only four inches high and can
be tucked away in a desk drawer or bookcase when not in use.
