Where There’s a Need—
(K.ditor’s Note. This is th<‘ first of a series of
editorials advocating construction oil the campus
of the University of Oregon. Included ill these
discussions, which will appear in these columns
during the next few weeks, will he a general plan
for what the Kmerald feels should be the next
unit in the i adversity's iadlding program—a
student union.)
13 KK( )K h even a semblance ot an organized
plan for 1 lie construction of a student
union at the Pnivcrsilj of Oregon eim lie
formulated, there must he a demand evi
deuced for such a building. This demand
must come from the students: as. of all of
the projects appearing on the lengthy lisi
of proposed campus improvements, the stu
dent union is the one which will directly
benefit the student group, itself.
A hare appeal to the students In evidence
such a demand seem hardly necessary. It is
evident that every one would be in favor
of a new and convenient student union build
ing. .lust as every' one would welcome eseu
Inters in .lohnson hall nr free ice cream
cones at the College1 Side. Therefore, before
such a demand can be given consideration,
there must he shown an actual need for the
facilities which would lx* provided by the
student union building. This need, we feel,
has so long been present that a mere recital
ol the immediate benefits to be derived from
a student union will serve to impress the
most lethargic observer.
Primarily, a student union building is
a student activity center. All of the extra
curricular activities of tile I’niversity and its
student body, with the single exception of
athletics, could be housed in such a building.
It would give the participants in these in
tivities a sense of independence which can
onlv be gained from contact with a central
organization a cooperative of the students
themselves. It is just such unity of student
endeavor which is now needed to hold In
getlier a student group torn by the preju
dices and misunderstandings of fraternities
versus dormitories, and student body card
holders versus non-members. A student
union, cent rally located and adequately
equipped, would give all of these groups a
common headquarters from which in em
anate that harmony which is indispensable
to a progressive student group.
I‘>nt there are many other facilities which
would he required in a worth while student
union building, (it importance among such
additional leatures would he the numerous
iduhs rooms made available for the more
tliHii lmIf hundred honoriiries and (dubs,
which arc irow forced to conduct tlicir meet
ings in classrooms, soft drink parlors, and
fraternity dining rooms.
I5ut such benefits would only constitute
the skeleton of requirements of ihe ideal
I'nion. There must needs be a ballroom to
briii'T an end to the monopoly which down
town hotels hold in providing propel* danc
ing environment. The co-op store mitrlit be
located within the I'nion. And. what is a
most imminent necessity, there could be in
eluded a spacious auditorium -an auditor
ium in which folding chairs would not be
needed, where basketball hoops would not
shut out the view, and where lofty rafters
would not drown out the voices of speakers
and the notes of musicians.
Even these gexlions do not complete
the possibilities oJ ’ered by such a project.
The benefits and returns from such a build
ing will expand as the possibilities become

The Crown Jewels
Again I See in Fancy
-,,. -.—.--— By Frederic S. Dunn
The Varsity’s First
The University had weathered its
fall months and was entering upon
the year 1877, when the first so
cial event in its calendar was
scheduled. Those first weeks had
left little occasion for festivities,
for both Faculty and students had
been busied with much pioneering
and organizing. The nearest ap
proach to a stated “mix” had been
the open session of the Laurean
Society just before the Christmas
holidays, to which the Eutaxians
and Professors had been bidden.
So this distinctly festal date, ad
vertised and pronounced as such,
was a novelty, at once achieving
considerable proportions. In later
years a so-called Introductory So
cial, alias “a Walk-Around,” be
came a standardized feature of the
opening weeks of the academic
year. These later occasions were,
however, quite wholly restricted to
the students and for the purpose
of acquainting the students one
with another, the primitive “open
house" as it were.
Since the University was still a
strangely new member of the
community, neither townspeople
nor students as yet adjusted to
each other, it was the happy in
tent of the promoters of this event
that it be a general opportunity
for mutual acquaintance. The ac
quisition of five Professors and an
army of 130 students, though per
haps not more than half of these
were from out of Lane County, was
presenting startling situations and
future complications, and both Eu
gene City and the University
wished to grapple with the prob
It is rather amusing to catch the
differentiating attitudes of the two
local weeklies which report this
introductory social of Friday, Jan
uary 5th, 1877. The State Journal
reflects the rather bland, tactfully
complimentary, style of Harrison
R. Kincaid, later to be Secretary
of State. Ira L. Campbell, on the
other hand, was inclined to read
into his editorials and news items
of The Guard something of the
critical and ironic.

The sarcasm of The Guard, in
contrast, rather indicates that Ira
was “among- those present.” “A
