A Big Pair of Shoes
IN 1936, George Root left the Oregon campus
with the gratifying knowledge that lie had
finished a job well-done. Subsequently the
Oregano which lie -edited was named the
best in the nation for that year, the All-Am
On .June 1, after a year in the employ of a
Portland firm, Mr. Root, returns to the campus
to step into a far larger pair of shoes, lie will
inherit the position of educational activities
manager filled so capably this year by Ralph
When the educational activities board an
nounced the selection of Mr. Root it expressed
confidence, naturally, in the man of its choice.
Especially outstanding is the new manager's
record of work with publications. During the
last year he has gained further experience in
this field through his work with an engraving
and printing company.

IIERE are many other phases to the duties
of an activities manager. There are or
ganizational duties, downtown and campus
contacts to be made, problems of finances and
management. Not long ago the Emerald
asked that Mr. Schomp’s successor possess the
retiring manager's intimate knowledge of the
campus. The board's choice certainly does. In
addition, he has a pleasing personality and
has shown considerable ability as an organ
This year the ASl’O presented the great

years. Air. Root or anyone else will have a
difficult time matching it for talent and for
rounded entertainment value. Arrangements
are already well underway, however, for next
fall's card offerings, which promise to be very
JN addition to matching this year's line pro
gram, Mr. Root faces the ever more pressing
problem of selling student body cards. Good
results have been attained this year by otier
ing true values. The greater faith thus incul
cated as to the worth of the cards should help
with next year's sales.
It's a big job but the board's selection is
apparently a wise one. Mr. Root returns to
Oregon with many valuable contacts already
made and a host of friends to greet him. l!
ought to be another good year for the associat
ed students and the I'niversity.

munity'' type of greeting.
Oregon eertaiuly doesn't deluge her guests
■with this sort of thing, but, as far as welcom
ing visitors goes, the University is guilty of a
serious breach of etiquette at the opposite
extreme. The restraint, the extreme reserve,
with which the University as a whole manages
to avoid extending the courtesy of the cuiupus
amounts to a sort of surly impoliteness.
First impressions are strong, if not lasting.

Soon Walter E. Pearson will visit Oregon
for the first time in his official capacity as a
member of the state board of higher educa

daries of etiquette by becoming too offensive.

will not suffer in Mr. Pearson’s eyes if il
is brought to his attention. Many campus
visitors are too busy to search out Oregon’s
fine points and to go out of their way to make
the acquaintance of her st udents.
A standing committee of several students
and a few faculty members, with an elaslic
membership modifiable 1o fit the major inter
ests of 1he visitor, seems in order. Not only
is it needed from a standpoint of etiquette
but also from that of practicality.
There is such a thing as carrying reserve
loo far. Let’s don’t be surly and stand-offish.
It’s not nice, and it. doesn’t pay.

honorary societies threaded their way through

for the fcoal and aim of education in its best
aspects. To be named to Phi Beta Kappa
means that a student has got from his college
life the real essence underlying the whole edu
cational process, for he has secured not only
wide academic knowledge, but has formed a
character and a wide-awake mind that will
make him the type of citizen vital to ideal
HERE ARE ONLY a few honors the Uni

to the student after graduation. Most'’that
are received are pleasant—recognitions of col

paratively small circle of college life. But
after commencement, when college days are
definitely over, the student realizes he must
make his way in a circle much larger, and
much more difficult to impress, than that
composed of his University friends.
Membership into Phi Beta Kappa, though
perhaps not as exciting as student body elec
tions, service honoraries, and the like, is an
honor that has much more endurance. For
after graduation, after school days are only
a pleasant haze in the memory, the recogni

Sports clothes lire leading the season in all that is important.
Skirts, sweaters, and anklets for the campus, culottes for bi
cycling, Hawaiian hand-blocks for swimming, shorts for tennis,
and Oh! it goes on indefinitely. ^
If you are in the market
for culottes or shorts, you
will no doubt find just what
you want at WASHBURNE’S.
They have them in all colors,
all sizes, all designs—one or
two piece. FRANCES OL

her culottes that she wears
on picnics, at WASH
BURNE’S. Her's are blue
with red, white, and yellow
flowers printed. Two-piece,

white ghillies, blue anklets,
and blue ribbons in her hair.
CLARE IGOE, of recent
fame, has a good looking
two-piece, sport dress. Very
plain, but very smart. White
rick-rack edges the complete
dress—collar, sleeves, and all.
The print is the outstanding
bit of the outfit. White

is, also, carried out on the

two piece, the skirt having
three pleats in front. The

At the ALPHA GAMMA DELTA house,
ELINOR STEWART wears a blue shan
tung with wine contrasts. This contrast is
carried out in the belt, scarf, and in the
buttons that adorned the full length of the
dress. Tucked sleeves, gored skirt. She
wears whit Cuban sandals.
Recent picnics have all been very suc
cessful with the participants reverting back
to their childhood days. For instance, at
the DELTA UPSILON picnic, MARY
STATEN. ALPHA PHI. fell for G. T.
SMITH all over again. MARY showed the
spectators how it's done, by doing a swan
dive from a balcony into the waiting arms
of TONY AMATO and GERRY SMITH—
She wasn't satisfied with doing it once, but
with such grand inspirations, she repeated
her dive. Very graceful, MARY.
