to boost the registration figure at
the University but also to secure a
larger number of students of a high
type. The organization’s activity
became prominent during the spring
vacation period when programs were
presented in various schools and
communities in the state.
The heavy duties of the group
were in summer vacation when hun
dreds of high school graduates were
interviewed. The prep school alum
ni were aided in theft problems.
Throughout the summer, Hubbs per
sonally directed the campaign from
his office in Eugene. The summer
drive was wound up when Hubbs
and Joe McKeown, president of the
student body, took a trip around the
state in the interests of the Uni
versity, making speeches and inter
viewing University alumni at vari
ous points on their itinerary.
Wide Publicity Given
The work continued after school
opened the fall term With Hubbs in
charge of the freshman week pro
State-wide publicity was given the
work of the committee whose work
attracted attention wherever its
meinbers functioned. Greater Ore
gon night was the occasion for many
special programs in theaters, and for
many dances which were attended
by college students as well as high
school folks.
“Marked efficiency was displayed
by the directorate during its whole
year of activity,” stated Hubbs in
commenting upon the results of the
committee’s work, “and I am indeed
gratified at the results shown by
the workers as a whole. The com
mittee this year has shown a won
derful spirit of cooperation, and I
feel that there is no reason why the
coming vacation campaign should
not he a success with such a willing
group of workers.”
•Hubbs is now at work completing
a, comprehensive report on the com
plete" details of tlie. work performed
by the Greater Oregon committee,
and expects to have the data ready
in time to lie presented to the next
chairman who will be named some !
time in February.
Dr. Hall Gives Praise
■'“I am indeed proud of the work
being done by the Greater Oregon
committee the past year and espe
cially the manner in which the
group lias swelled the university
registration and at the same time,
favored the university with a high
type of students,” stated Amobt
Bennett Hall, president of the uni
versity, who is ardent supporter
J of the Greater Oregon movement.
“I want at this time to thank
personally the directors and the
large number of committee workers
for their untiring efforts to make
the past campaign what we consider
to be the most successful ever. The
j registration figures for the past
| term indicate that the Greater Ore
gon committee has functioned prop
j erly.
“I. am heartily in favor of having
j the work continued, and the univer
1 sity is always willing to lend what
ever aid possible to this enterpris
ing group of workers.
“Not too much in the way of
praise can he said in appreciation
of the services rendered by Konald
llubbs, the chairman, who spent
ever so much of his time personally
directing the forces at work in this
constructive organization.”
Results Noticed
The results of the work performed
by the committee are well noticed
in the manner in which the registra
tion figures jumped for the fall
term, according to Earl M. Pallett,
registrar. Where before the aver
age increase for each fall term of
the preceding year has been about
50, the increase for the fall term,
1_28, over the same period in 1927
is 258. The registration figures for
the past four fall terms are:
1925 . 2752
1920 . 2810
1927 . 2850
1928 . 3008
