And Students Noted
Immediate Selection of Chancellor
Necessary, Says Thompson,
President of Dads

university as indicated by the term
“Alma Mater" was pointed out by
Dr. Boyer.
The need for immediate action
in the selection of a chancellor was
the topic dwelt on by W. Lair
Thompson, Portland, president of
the Oregon Dad's club. The new
chancellor should be selected at
once so that he will be acquainted
with the higher education setup in
Oregon and will be ready to take
charge at the opening of the insti
tutions in the fall, said Thompson.
Thompson Speaks
Thompson spoke of the value of
timeliness in action by any power
wielding body. Using the compari
son of a golf swing, he pointed out
that timing can make an educa
tional setup smooth also. The
timing has been bad in the past
and consequently many friendships,
he said, were bent.
The president of the Oregon
Dads said he had not heard of any
steps having been taken to replace
the chancellor, in time to give the
new appointee an opportunity to
acquaint himself with the Oregon
campuses. The timing must not
go wrong, Thompson declared.
There are rare cases in which de
layed action is fruitful, but this,
he said, is not one of them.
O.S.C. Ranks High
As a technical school Oregon
State college ranks among the
highest in the nation, Thompson
pointed out in turning to another
phase of his speech. Neither of the
schools should be allowed to have
too many irons in the fire but
should specialize in their own
fields, Oregon State in technical
matters only and Oregon in liter
ature and the arts Ry this meth
od both would have greater oppor
tunities to reach the top in their
respective fields. Both schools
would have to give up something
but it would tend toward a better
ment of both institutions, said
Presentation of trophies was
made by Mrs. Arthur M. Dibble,
president of the organization, re
elected to serve another year in
that post. A beautiful candelabra
offered by the mothers of Port
land was presented to Phi Mu so
rority for having the'most mothers
present. They scored 100 percent.
Chi Psi lodge was awarded the
Mrs. Charles Hall trophy offered
to the men’s organizations for the
third successive time, thus gaining
permanent possession of it.
Welcome Given
Fred E. Callister brought greet
ings from the board of education.
“The period of retrenchment is
passed,” said Callister. The board
is well fitted for the work ahead,
he pointed out, but it must have
not only the cooperation of all
board members but also of the in
stitutions of higher learning and
harmony between the institutions.
Welcome from the University
was given by Burt Brown Barker,
vice-president of the University.
Joseph Renner, newly installed
president of the A. S. U. O., wel
comed the mothers on behalf of the
students, telling them how much
their help was valued and coopera
tion as well as their love. Earle
Wellington, president of the Asso- j
ciated Friends of the University, i
brought word from that group. In
vocation was offered by Rev. Cecil j
F. Ristow, of the First Methodist!
church of Eugene. A vocal selec
tion was given by Charles Fahey.1
At the close of the program the
introduction of the new officers for
the Oregon mothers was made.
Music for the banquet was furn
ished by the Phi Beta Trio: Vivian
Malone, violin; Roberta Sshrdacsm
Moffitt, cello; and Theresa Kelly,

At noon the annual campus
luncheon, spread on the lawn un
der the campus firs, was held, with
mothers as special guests. The
crowning of Miss Josephine Waf
fle, Astoria, as Queen Josephine I
was the outstanding event of the
luncheon. Her court of honor in
cluded Margaret Ann Howland,
Mary tine New, of Portland; Mir
iam Henderson. Oregon City, and
Cynthia Liljeqvist, Marshfield.
The picturesque ceremony of
pledging to Mortar Board, senior
women’s society, and Friars, sen
ior men’s honorary, was held dur
ing the luncheon. The Mortar
Board members in cap and gown
To all Oregon Mothers:
On behalf of the associated
students I want to express to
you the great pleasure we ex
perienced in having you here
for the seventh annual Moth
er's Day celebration. We sin
cerely hope you enjoyed your
stay as much as we enjoyed the
privilege of entertaining you
over the week-end. Although
next Mother's Day is a year
away, we want to extend to
you an invitation to be with us
again. To those mothers who
could not be here this year, we
want to express our regrets
and we want you to know that
we missed you very much. We
hope that all of you can be
with us next May, and we will
again do our best to show you
our University, our work and
our aims.
Associated Students, U. of O.

standing junior man, was won by
Malcolm Bauer of Pendleton.
Saturday morning the sopho
mores marched the freshmen up
to Skinner's butte where the “O”

and then proceeded to pull the
first year men into the millrace in
thd annual tug-of-war. A water
carnival and other events also en
livened the morning for students
and guests.
Mrs. A. M. Dibble, Portland,
whose work as president of the
University of Oregon Mothers won
high praise from members and
others with whom she has been
associated during the past year,
was re-elected to this position by
unanimous vote of the seventh an
nual Mothers’ mass meeting held
Saturday morning.
At the mass meeting, which this
year attracted a record attend
ance, the mothers were greeted by
Dr. C. V. Boyer, president of the
University, and C. A. Brand, Rose
burg, member of the state board
of higher education. Dr. Boyer
sounded a note of optimism for
the future of the University, and
warmly praised the mothers’ or
ganization for its cooperation dur
ing the past year. Mr. Brand also
pointed out the value of the work
of the Mothers' organization, and

Freshman, Sophs
Both Gel Duckings
In Big Tug-o-war
Everything from an ordinary
soaking to slinging mud was al
lowed at the free-for-all fracas
which developed out of the frosh
sophomore tug-o-war Saturday
Seriously outnumbered by a
horde of freshmen who arrived at
the millrace, the sophomores took
no chances and tied their end of
the rope to the nearest telephone
pole. Not to be out-maneuvered
the frosh performed the same oper
ation with their end of the rope.
Then the struggle began. The
sophomore telephone pole beean to
creak and sway. The freshmen
were determined to win even if
they had to disrupt the power sys
tem. Matters were brought to sud
den halt, however, when the rope
snapped over the middle of the
stream, laying all the frosh out
straight on the ground.
From then on a storm of flying
mud, water, and slippery bodies de
veloped on the banks of and in the
millrace. Every underclassman on
the premises regardless of class
who showed any signs of being dry
was tossed in the water. The banks
quickly became a mass of slippery
Not being satisfied with the dev
astation already created, about 20

Local Pioneers Recall Days
Of Stables and Board Walks
Board sidewalks and great trees
lining either side of the street
were some of the scenes of Eugene
25 years ago recalled by Mrs.
Anna Butterfield, a resident of
Eugene for many years, while
spending a few hours at the mill
race home of Aunt Samanthy Dil
lard, one of the most loved pioneer
Oregon mothers, chatting over the
prized memories of yesterday.
Livery stables predominated in
those horse and wagon days, hav
ing since been replaced by modern
buildings. No paved roads; rather
pools of mud or dust in early Ore
gon days, travelers using good old
dust coats. Their thoughts then
turned to Aunt May Walker, one
of the greatest pioneer mothers,
who often slept with her clothing
laying ready to dress at a mo
ment's notice, listening for the
ofotsteps of an approaching man
coming through the night leading
an extra horse for Aunt May.
With herbs and roots, she would
mount the horse and with her mid
night caller would be off through
the trails, to aid the sick or dis
This valiant mother is remem
bered today by men and women
of Lane county as one who gave
a long life of service and love to
them and their families.
“Grandma Johana Hanson, one
of Mrs. Btterfield’s neighbors,
came as a 16-year-old bride to Eu
gene in 1853; a good neighbor and
friend. Mrs. John Stewart, an
other pioneer mother, after an
afternoon spent in sewing and tell
ing of her life in Oregon, filled a
basket with fruit, walked to the
corner with her visitor, and bid
her goodby, saying, “lovely after- j
noon, and no one’s heart will ache
for anything we have said. Be |
over soon, goodbye.”
Other neighboring pioneers in
cluded Oliver Eeeler, I he first i
white man to settle in the state i
of Kansas, before making Oregon
his home. Aunt Samanthy and
Mrs. Butterfield then remembered
the little hand bell J. D. Meyer
used to call the housewives to the
dcor to buy his fresh vegetables, j
As they picked out their vegc- j
tables Mr. Meyers would tell them
all the news he had gathered dur
ing his daily trip about Eugene,
but no gossip!
At this time there were few
telephones except those used in
business, and fewer cars. Inhabi
tants of the town were indeed
proud of the car loops when they
were first installed.
There are still many pioneer
mothers and fathers left, though
the ranks are thinning. When
Uncle Henry Harlow on his nine
tieth birthday, with Aunt Matt,
was brought to Eugene they
talked of the old pioneer families,
and their experiences, topics that
never grew old.
“Beautiful O r e g o n," declared
Mrs. Butterfield, “no wonder the
pioneer fathers and mothers loved
their homeland. May their de
scendants have the faith, the love
and pride of their pioneer people
for our Oregon.”
Under the

Commodore L. Q. Stoopnagle and

Oregon Mothers
Pass Work Done,
Plan Coming Year
Executive Committee Holds Two
Sessions; Boyer Outlines
Scholarship Plans
Members of the executive com
mittee of the Oregon Mothers
spent a busy weekend, especially
those on the old and new groups.
Meetings for both were held at 8
o’clock in the morning in the re
gents’ room in John Straub Me
morial building. At the Saturday
morning session the old committee
reviewed and passed on the work
done during the past year, while
the new board, at its meeting Sun
day morning, planned out the work
for the coming year.
The new board Sunday heard
from President C. V. Boyer. An
outline of a plan for scholar
ships for worthy and needy
students, and the mothers were
called on to promote the plan
wherever possible. The plan, in
brief, provides that scholarships
shall be established by service clubs
and other civic organizations in
the various Oregon cities, and
these scholarships given to stu
dents who can qualify. Amounts
for the scholarships and the num
ber, will vary with the size of the
communities and the number and
strength of the civic organizations,
Dr. Boyer pointed out.
urner pnases or me worK.jor
the coming year were discussed at
the Sunday meeting. Each year
the organization is gaining in lo
calities all over the state, and the
various ways in which the Mothers’
groups can work together for the
benefit of the University and their
sons and daughters were discussed.
Saturday the board heard the
report of the president, Mrs. A. M.
Dibble, the treasurer’s report and
minutes of various committee
meetings held during the year.
Definite progress in the organiza
tion was shown by these reports,
and the committee was so enthus
iastic over the work that had been
done under Mrs. Dibble that they
again nominated her for president.
Other nominations, all of which
were later passed unanimously by
the mothers at the mass meeting,
included Mrs. George F. Brice,
Portland, vice-president, and Mrs.
L. A. Henderson, Oregon City,
A report on the University of
Oregon Federation and its work
was made by Mrs. Walter M.
Cooke, Portland, representative of
the Oregon Mothers on this group.
The executive committee of the
federation is composed of repre
sentatives of the Oregon Dads,
Oregon Mothers, alumni, Associat
ed Living Groups, and Associated
Friends of the University. A sum
to aid the federation in its work
was voted by the mothers. Plans
for a pamphlet on the University,
to be issued soon, were also told,
and a sum was voted for this.
These actions were later rectified
at the mass meeting.

Elected Again
Brand Addresses Mass
Meeting of Group
Other Officers, Members of Board
Elected at Annual Business
Session of Organization
Over 100 Oregon Mothers took
time Saturday morning at 10
o'clock to attend the annual mass
meeting, held in Guild theater.
There they named officers for the
ensuing year and heard a number
of talks and reports. Charles A.
Brand, Roseburg, member of the
state board of higher education,
made the chief speech, bringing
greetings from the board.
Mrs. Arthur M. Dibble, Portland,
was unani:-'.rv■ re-elected presi
dent of the Mothers. Mrs. George
F. Brice, ex-president of the Port
land group of Oregon Mothers, was
elected vice-president of the state
organization, to succeed Mrs. W.
G. Hare of Hillsboro. To the office
of treasurer, Mrs. L. A. Henderson,
Oregon City, was re-elected.
Directors Elected
Six directors also were elected
at the meeting. Mrs. H. B. Fenton
of Portland was named for the
short term, to retire from the ex
ecutive committee in 1935. Those
elected for the full term, to retire
in 1937, included Mrs. E. C. Peets,
Portland, Mrs. Roy T. Bishop, Port
land, Mrs. Percy F .Freeman, Port
land, Mrs. Ben Chandler, Marsh

The session was opened with a
short welcoming talk by President
C. V. Boyer. President Boyer par
ticularly stressed the importance
to the welfare of higher education
of the active interest of students’
Brand Gives View
Brand also expressed this V*;*w,
suggesting that the women nomin
ate and elect to office men who will
support higher education. He gave
a concise summary of the work of
the state board during the last
year. He praised President Boyer
as, “a real president, a scholar, a
friendly man, and a straight-shoot
er.” The most recent phase of re
organization in Oregon’s system of
higher education, he declared, has
resulted in a new friendship be
tween the campus at Eugene and
that at Corvallis.
Extra-curricular activities are an
integral part of modern education,
Brand said in explaining why they
were included in a student’s fees.
Routine reports followed Brand’s
talks, the reading of minutes for
the 1933 mass meeting and four
intervening executive meetings
and the annual treasurer's state
ment. With the payment of a
check for $50 to the University of
Oregon Federation and another of
$13 to the Portland Mothers,
$128.55 will be left in the organi
zation’s treasury. Slightly over
$10,000 is in the Oregon Mothers'
infirmary fund.
Report Given
Mrs. Dibble read a report of her
work as president during the last
year. Mrs. Walter M. Cook, repre
sentative of the Mothers on the
University of Oregon Federation
directorate, also read her report.
Klamath Falls activities were de
scribed in an impromptu report by
Mrs. Pearl Drew, president of the
Southern Oregon group.
