was “first-class.”
Wins 915 Points
I T . .
In winning its rating, the year
book ran up the highest score ever
made by an Oregana, with 915
| points out of a possible 1000. In
1937! the score was 875 points,
while in 1936 it was 840. The score
for 1938 is not known.
Some new advances were made
by the 1939 book, it was learned.
For the first time the pictures re
ceived full rating, excellent, while
the business and financial end won
the same rating. Printing also re
ceived this high mark.
The winning of All-American,
and top six ranking are worth
more than ever before, George
Root, educational activities man
ager. said yesterday, basing his!
conclusions on the fact that the!
scores were so much higher than
before. This, Root indicated, shows'
that yearbooks in general are im
proving in quality, which means
the 1939 Oregana had to excel to
: win over such competition. No

gana, Don Root, on the campus
again this year, was busy yester
day receiving congratulations for
the fine piece of work he turned
out last year, as was Dick Wil
I liams, record-smashing Oregana
business manager.
Winning of the high award, the
best ever to come to this annual
publication, will not give this year’s
Oregana staff a “swelled head,”
Oregana Editor George Knight de
clared yesterday. Instead this
year’s staff will profit by the 1939
mistakes and will attempt to sur
pass this top ranking made by the

While other students today will

with their individual schedules.
Tomorrow and Saturday all new
students will meet their advisors

students will pay their fees and

AWS Carnival
One of the first fall term events
to find listing on the campus social
slate is the annual AWS carnival,
which is slated for October 28 in
McArthur court. Sally Mitchell and
Barbara Stallcup will be chairmen
of the affair.
The AWS event, official Oregon
"let - down - your - hair” night for
; campus week-enders, is set for fall
1 term this year rather than the tra
1 ditional April date.
Main reason for the change, ac
cording to Anne Fredriksen, Asso
ciated Women’s prexy, is because
Oregon women will spend most of
spring term getting preparations
underway for the northwest AWS
; conference, which is on their April
slate this year.
