The 'First Act’ of Education
^^FTFN 1 lio student about to enter a uni
versity or college lias been characterized
as “confused,” “bewildered,” or “preen.”
Tito freshman entering Oregon need feel
neither bewilderment, nor discomfort, for the
Universify, just as other schools, is ready to
welcome and enroll him and has prepared
him to a considerable extent for his entrance
through its catalogue, letters, and other in
The student who has chosen the University
of Oregon as his school should be, rather,
caper and alert, for he is about to enter an
institution which can open for him the rich
est of all vistas, education.
E<tncnlion is not limited to ies'i'nlions of
learning. The primary purpose of the univer
sity. however, is the dispersion of education
and “education a la college” Ims e-aine I a
connotation deeper than mere gathering and'
classification of academic knowledge. For
the university offers many opportunities for
social and cultural broadening in addition to
the formal knowledge it presents.

QTIFflON’S freshman of the class of 1011
will become, upon enrollment, a partner
in a concern which seems definitely on a post
depression unward trend.
For the full four years of his course he
will have at his disposal a physical plant upon
which million-dollar improvements have been
made in the past year, lie is entering at a
time when enrollment is increasing. when na
tional and stale governments have marie larg
er grants for administration and expansion
available* when a financially pood athletic
season has just been completed and when a
pood one competitively and final (dally is
“I7NTERTNG” with him will be a new presi
Dr. V. Boyer has successfully ptiided the
I 'id verbify thronph the hard “lean years" and
i:i September will return once more to his
position as head of the department of English,
leaving the presidency in other hands.
I'nipiestionahlv Dr. Boyer recognized and
coped with efficiently tin* outstanding prob
lem which faced Oregon during his regime
the need for economic, conservative manage
ment. However, the psychology developed
during those lean years is not readily adapted
to the period id' expansion which now seems
the institution's lot and the grip of a new,
fresh mind should be invaluable.
0 THE class of ’41 need not feel awed or
confused. On the contrary, their emo
lional reactions should be those of pride and
eao-erness—for with enrollment they begin
their educations in a University prepared to
welcome them as participants in the const ruc
tion of a future which should far surpass its
splendid past.
Dr Boyer Joins Oregon's Past Presidents
gOMETTME early in September Ilia slate
board of hi<r11r*r education will announce
a successor In Dr. C. \r. Poyer, and his namo
will lie addrd In tlin illustrious list of past
presidents nf this Univer«>t.y- J. W. Johnson,
Charles II. Chapin"!' Dr. Frank Stroup,
Prince Lueieii (’ampb’l. end Dr. Arnold Den
nett Hall.
Just one dav after his resignation iis sixth
president nf the University had been an
nounced in Portland. Dr. Dover, once more
in bis Villard ball office, smiled and said:
“I hove not lost my interest in education.”
Made in connection with an announcement
llmt he would resume his duties as head of
the Enplish department, that statement pave
oral expression to the philosonhv and spirit
which led him to tackle the difficult job of
Universil\ administrator in depression years,
which led him to make the exaetinp but nec
essary battle to maintaui the standards of
education, and which will now enable him to
return to the wo'-k th«t he loves best.
* * #
'‘"'em 'ot also indicated his realiza
tion that the work of an executive, even
<T :i di'iin of :i collejre. is often far different
m.o of an educator. And also that
■'o ■■I'lninistrnlrr to an institution of higher
t-.firnniQ' must always have the aims and inter
ests of education as motivation for his execu
tive actions.
I)r. Dover had other statements to make
in reference to his retirement. A unified facul
ty. working to extend the University and
build up its prestige, a program of educational
advancement should be the aim of his succes
sor. Hut the declaration that In1 had retained
his interest in education seems not only the
key note of his term as president but also the
truidinp principle which he believes the edu
cational executive should follow.
# * *
TTORTUNATRUY Dr. Dover is not leaving
the faculty. In his old position he will
no doubt increase the debt the University and
higher education already owes him.
At any rati' his years as president have
been successful—he has not lost view of the
educational woods even thou ('ll he has had to
prune administrative trees.
