Seniors' Greatest Opportunity
0 lethargy is apparent in the class of 19:10,
which is soon to shift the tassels on their
mortar-hoard caps. In fact, this class would
seem to be very definitely on the track of
something in their effort to establish an en
dowment for the University. Not only are
they on the track, but they are working on
the project, and it looks as if they might get
somewhere with it.
“ Unselfishness is manifest in the vigor with
which the committee is pushing the campaign.
There is nothing compelling them to carry
on this work. They are almost through with
the University to all practical purposes, yet
they spare nothing in their pursuit of the
greatest memorial a class could give.
Yesterday the memorial committee ap
pointed by Senior President Harriett Sara/in
decided on one plan over the several they had
been considering. In narrowing the field down
they carefully weighed tin1 merits of each
system. The accepted plan is one which will
best fit the need in this particular ease.

endowment, with no physical examination,

if it succeeds will leave ils mark on the pages
of University of Oregon history as the stand

custom, might send the l niversity to hitherto
Indisputably, however, the big IK in the
seniors’ endowment plans, is how the class as
a whole will take to the plan. They stand on
the threshold of something finer than anyone
yet realizes. It is within their power to start
something more significant than even its pro
moters imagine. Tomorrow night's meeting
will decide whether the endowment ship of
the seniors sinks or sails on.
The seniors will look the thing over from

Need Some Pottery?
Here’s How It’s Made
By MARIE BO,IE
Ambling through the art court one day, the reporter heard a loud,
"I can’t just ignore it," thought he, ‘‘on account of reporters being
cracked up to be such a curoius lot with noses for news and such."
So he propelled himself in the general direction of said disturbance,
namely, the pottery department.
There it is disclosed that what informed people call a kiln makes
all the fuss. It seems that this hap

General appearance of the kiln
may be likened somewhat to that

2030 degrees Fahrenheit it uses
approximately 1200 cubic feet of
gas an hour.

can look through this opening and

Most firings take eight hours at
about 1885 degrees. Pottery must
be fired twice: the first time it is
called the biscuit, and bakes the

adds the finished texture.
There are three ways that pot
