Missed, But Hit
CHARACTERIZING t lie recently published
interfraternity council handbook as miss
ing the point entirely, the Eugene Register
Guard suggests editorially that more essential
and more interesting activities should be in
cluded in the booklet.
The importance of the editorial, published
in the adjoining column, is not in its criticism
of the council (if such criticism is even in
tended), but in the direct bearing the com
ment has on the University’s program.
# # #
S cited yesterday by Dean James II. Gil
bert, and as many other faculty leaders
have declared, the crying need of the Univer
sity is an arrangement whereby campus visi
tors and citizens of the state are actually
“told'’ about the school, its greatness, and its
Certainly, the University still needs many
additions to achieve true greatness. Dean
Wayne L. Morse, in his recent New York
speech, outlined part of a constructive pro
gram that may well be followed. Not only
must pure science be offered once more, but
other practical courses need working in with
the extremely valuable cultural program.
There is still much to do along those lines.
However, progress is being made, and it is
the hope of University leaders that such addi
tions will be made in due time.
# # * •
T^EGARDLESS of these additions, the Uni
versity ranks high as a school. Educators
realize it. Students here realize it. faculty
member realize it. The editor of the Register
Guard realizes it. But many otlfler people
vitally concerned do not. The University does
need “selling'' ol its good points.
It is doubtful whether funds are available
at present for a paid chairman of the .type
of promotional committee suggested by Dean
Gilbert. However, every effort should be
made to obtain the necessary finances as soon
In the meantime, much can be done. The
primary need is for some centralized author
ity to be responsible for such work. A perma
nent faculty committee to supervise and aid
students in such procedure seems the logical
fit'll a committee, in charge of “welcom
ing guests, and in charge of carrying on
as much ' selling" of 1 be University \s achieve
ments as possible, should be appointed at once.
Even at this late date they could help mater
ially in working with students on the week
end program tor the entertainment of hun
dreds of visiting high school track boys.
In the luture the members would ill ways
be available for initiating and directing such
reception work. They would be ;>n hand
permanently to help work out worthwhile
promotional plans, until remuneration is avail

Three Times And Out
AS a fitting climax to four years of higher
education, the University’s seniors are
scheduled for three final examinations before
they (receive their much-coveted sheepskin
Although these affairs are full of ceremony
and showmanship, every effort lias been made
by Advisor Dean Gilbert and the administra
tion to make them not only of interest but of
practical value to the graduating students.
Carefully selected speakers will provide
intellectual meat well worth digesting by the
senior preparing to leave his small University
whirl and enter into a completely different
outside world. Program arrangements have
been made so that efficient handling vviil

a new peak for interest this year. It is sei
for eight in the evening instead of the morn

missing services. The speaker, Rev. .1. Iludsoi

Required attendance for seniors at Com

be well-justified. This is the last formal cere
mony for the senior. Speaker Clyde B. Aitch

system of marching has been initiated so that
delays and confusions are avoided.
# * #
ERYTHING has been done to make these
three occasions long-remembered eventf
ul’ great importance. The administration lias
done its part. The next move is up to the
seniors. Sometimes an indolent non-interest
has characterized their reception of these
affairs in their honor.
“Three times and out” is a Idlmt way ol
stating the program of events left before
graduation. But whole-hearted cooperation in
spirit and attendance will make the luncheon.
Baccalaureate, and Commencement things
never forgotten by those participating.
MISSING THE POINT ENTIRELY
Nice but riot likely to be very effective with a
great many young people who are planning to
enter some college next fall is the booklet published
by the Interfraternity Council. It shows a great
many pictures of the handsome fraternity and sor
ority houses on the University of Oregon campus
and supplies some information as, to living costs
and interesting activities but it fails entirely to tell
what is most important the rich offerings the
University of Oregon presents which will help any
young man or woman to find a useful and profit

faculty the University faculty lists many men

and much might be said on this subject
After all. most students still come to the t'ui
versity for education, and though fraternities and
sororities play a useful and important part in mak
ing life pleasant and comfortable, they are only
part of the comprehensive system of dormitories
and cooperatives developed here Most of Oregon's
students are partly or entirely self-supporting and
the employment office imdet the able direction of
Janet Smith is doing a remarkable work of guid
ance and aid.
If booklets arc necessary to .implement the dry
and often bewildering pages of the state i italogue.
something should be said about what the Univer
se icatly offers. Oregon s young men and women
do not need to travel tar for broad and progressive
education. The schools of this state rank with the
best, and for those who plan to hve and work in
Oregon, there is a definite advantage in the asso
ciations formed here. Eugene Register-Ouurd.
