To Carry Out Work
BOOKLET IS PREPARED
Students Interested Are In
cluded in List
At a meeting yesterday of all
students on the campus who have
appointive powers, the purpose of
the questionnaire, filled out at reg
istration this term, was explained
by Paul Ager, chairman of the ac
tivities committee. These students'
expressed themselves as being in
favor of the plans to eliminate
over-activity on the campus.
This body also recommended that
the student council organize a perm
anent activities committee to be
appointed by student body offi
cials; this committee to have charge
of the records of each student’s
activities, and to keep track of the
ability and success of students in
their student body work.
Book is Prepared
The work that has actually been
done by the activities committee
this term has proved of value to
many students. A book is now
ready for use in which is listed, ac
cording to the activities in which
they are interested, all the stu
dents who indicated their prefer
ences when filling out the ques
tionnaire at registration.
In this book an entirely new field
is opened up. Before now, it has
been almost impossible to reach stu
dents not in campus living organi
zations. There was no way to get
them for committee work unless the
one appointing the committee was
personally acquainted with the stu
dent. In this information book, all
students not living in campus or
ganizations are listed, and if they
are interested in activities, they can
now be reached without difficulty.
Only Interested are Included
Students who indicated that they
were not interested in campus ac
tivities are not included in the
That this list of student activi
ties .is to be used voluntarily by
students with appointive powers

compulsory but the cooperation of
the students with 'the committee
will facilitate committee appoint
ments and avoid duplication. It
will be a standardized system of
A system whereby scholarship may
be taken into consideration in these
appointments may be worked out
in the future. At present the whole
system is new and not yet fully
completed but as each new question
comes up, new changes are being

True Stories of Faculty Kids
From private to top sergeant in
two weeks, and later to first lieut
enant, is the record of John W.
Beck, son of Mrs. Anne Landsbury
Beck,. head of the public school
music department of the school of
music. At the outbreak of the war
John Beck enlisted as a private in
the 144th Field Artillery of •Cali
fornia. Two weeks later he was
promoted to top-sergeant, and as
he was an expert horseman, he soon
attained the commissioned rank of
After the war SeCond-Lieutenant
Beck took the examinations for the
regular army, was granted the rank
of first-lieutenant, and sent to the
Mexican border in charge of the
He has been stationed in several
camps since that time, and just re
cently was sent to Oklahoma City
in charge of the state guards.
“And for your own information,
I might tell you that John is the
best soldier in the army,” says
For ten years, part of which was
during the whole of the World War,
Madame McGrew, professor of
voice in the school "of music, was
separated from her three daugh
ters, Bose, Helga and Bessie. Ma
dame McGrew came to this country
before the outbreak of the war, and
the girls were left in Dresden. Be
cause of complications of war tra
vel, it was impossible for the iam
ily to be reunited until just four
years ago, when Eose and Helga
came to Eugene.
During the war Eose attended a
preparatory school in Dresden for
three years, during which time she
made an average in her scholarship
of “One.” She earned her way by
scholarship grants, which were
given her for the remarkable scho
lastic showing, and by tutoring.
She entered the University of Ore
gon in 1922, was awarded a B.A.
degree in 1924, and a Master’s de
gree in 1925. During the last year
she was also a teaching fellow in
German. She is now librarian at
the University of Kiel, which is the
largest research library in the
world, where she buys and cata
logues books for that institution.
Helga entered the University at
the same time her sister did, and
majored in dramatics, in which de
partment she has become well
ktfown to Guild hall patrons. At
present she is keeping house for
her mother and younger sister
Bessie, who came to this country
only last fall, is taking art courses
under Professor Schroff, and will

Triends of Yours”
Perhaps you never think of it in this way—but there is a
lot of news about friends of yours in this paper right now.
Friends who serve you daily—who lighten your work—
amuse your leisure—contribute to your welfare and to
the pleasure of your life.
Advertised products—familiar faces that you find in yo«r
living-room, bedroom, bath, kitchen, garage and yard.
Long association with them has proved their “friendship"
to be valuable.
The advertisements are little intimate word pictures of
these “commercial friends." Advertisements tell you
how they are made, what they are doing, and how and
where to get them.
As a general rule, there is nothing familiar or "friendly"
about the appearance of an unadvertised product. You
seldom see it in the paper—the stores—or even in homes.
Largely because the great buying publie has learned that
the advertised product is the friend to tie to.
Read the Advertisements regularly—they
are messages from business friends of yours
