Oregon Mothers Name Officers At Mass Meeting On Campns Boyer Makes Theme 'Future Of University’ Better Spirit of Faculty And Students Noted Immediate Selection of Chancellor Necessary, Says Thompson, President of Dads (Continued from Page One) 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 Thompson. 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.

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 morning. 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 mud. Not being satisfied with the dev astation already created, about 20 men from both sides made a tour of nearby fraternity houses duck ing every helpless underclassman they could find. Joe Renner, A. S. U. O. president, was one of the victims. Article, Baby Come to Grad Simultaneously Mrs. Ivan McColIom (Freda Holtzmeier l, former graduate stu dent in psychology at the Univer sity, became an author and a mother on the same day, May 7.

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 tressed. 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 Mikeroscope By JIMMY MORRISON Things seem to be moving in the 1 maritime department.

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, treasurer. 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.
