Orchids for the Oregana
QNE of 1he fastest, developin'? functions of colleges the
nation over is that of the annual, or yearbook, here
known as the Oregana. Oreganas of earlier years little re
semble the resplendent article produced last year, which lias
just won its right to be included among tbe best six year
books in tbe United States, for any size college. A yearbook
in these days is a project which takes money in quantity,
plus imagination, much hard work, and a considerable amount
of constantly changing technical skill. In order to compete
in this field now it takes plenty of the old get-up-and-go.
Apparently the men who run the Oregana are a pretty
wideawake bunch, as witness this latest triumph of first-six
ranking just announced, and tbe not-to-be-forgotten fact
that in three years out of llie last four the University of
Oregon yearbook has been among the leaders. When changes
/lavh preen indicated, the Oregana men have not waited until
standardization to adopt them. They have even pioneered
hero and there. And they arc undeniably successful.
# * * *
JpOR the due credit department a prominent place should
go to Past Editor Don Root, who was in harness during
the making of the book. Tins year for the first time tbe
business side of the book won excellent rating—for this credit,
should go almost entirely to Business Manager Dick Wil
liams. Tf anyone else should be in on that we can’t think who
it would be at this point. Dick is undoubtedly one of tlic
best business managers in the history of the school.
But for long-range planning over a period of years, for
the farsightedness to read the handwriting on the wall, for
three years of quiet behind-the-scenes guidance, Educational
Activities Manager George Root rates as much honor as any
body. Getting his training not so many years ago as an All
American Oregana editor, George Root has done more to
build up the yearbook than any other one person. As a mat
ter of fact, with Root at the helm, with the present system
of profiting by each year's mistakes, the University of Oregon
has one of the best yearbook setups anywhere.
With this kind of a setup, combined with the fact that
the 39‘19 book was “tops” nationally, plus the underlying
idea that the Oregana is a book for the students, it, will not
be surprising if the 19-40 books begins tomorrow at registra
tion to break records.
Burned deeply into the sopho
more lawn at the University of
California a few feet from the still
visible “ ’42” of last year, are the
numerals “’43!” Don Morgan ’42,
sophomore class president, vowed
yesterday that “the freshman class
will pay for this damage." Fresh
men who have been active in anti
sophomore demonstrations denied
responsibility for the damage.
“We think the sophomores put. it
there to gain sympathy," they said.

The edneational activities board really meant business last,
spring when it lined up its ASJJO attractions for this year.
The board wanted good, sound features, and it went out and
got them..Look at Lawrence Tibbett, By himself he should
be a standout to anyone with ftnv appreciation of music at
all. Trhbett needs, no buildup. He has carved his own place
in the modern-world of music. He is not only high-priced but
giood. The. board was ready to extend itself to get him for
Eugene. The American Ballet Caravan, a home-grown pro
duct, is equally strong in its line. Unique in its field, its com
ing is eagerly awaited bv followers of this art, which will
also be a real experience for nonauthorities.
The board has long been an exponent of this type of edu
al offering. They feel that this is an important part of
higher education, Jt is.

card holders will immediately feel the gouge here. With

Fp to this point it might appear that the only thing im
portant to consider is value received. It would be fine if
it did not have to be the ease. Rut probably the most out
standing thing about an ASUO card is the fact that the pur
chaser has manifested his confidence in his school, lias thought
enough of it to part with coin at a time at which expenses are
already lumped heavily. Anyone who has for a long timc^
done without ASUO membership and then subscribed can tell
the different feeling which comes with membership. Print
is too cold to cover the subject.
Support of the ASUO is a worthwhile program without
which the famed “Oregon spirit” might-lose much of its
sparkle. In past years this support has been furnished by
thousands of card buyers. There is no reason to believe this
year will be different, but if the University is to get up even
more momentum it is to be hoped the ASUO will have a

Every college student should
read a book. We think it should be
made a requirement for gradua
tion. Our trip to the library re
minded us of our favorite book,
which can be found listed in the
card catalog. As nearly as we can
remember the title goes something
like this: "The Action of the Un
zine on Paraquinones,” and it
sounds pretty good.
We're going to get around to
reading it one of these days. It has
the doubtful distinction of being
the only book we've ever heard of
whose author We’d like to meet.

mgn seas . . ,
The German high command has
officially asserted today that a
German bomber struck a British
heavy cruiser with a 550-pound
bomb off the Scottish coast this
week. This makes the second such
assertion coming from the Ger
mans this week. The British have
denied both instances. You can
take your £>ick.
Poland . . .
Although Warsaw has fallen be
fore Nazi aggression, Modlin, an
cient fortified city commanding the
north entrance to Warsaw still
stands as the last Polish defence in
that sector. Latest reports, how
ever, describe the Poles as offering
to surrender the historic city.
Paris . . ,
France has published little in
regard to her active part in the
current European struggle, beyond
heavy artillery attacks and long
observation flights into German
territory. The French have suc
ceeded in convincing most corres
pondents that they have broken
the Siegfried line in spots.
Moscow . . .
Russia is undoubtedly taking a
lesson from Germany as witnessed
by her latest action against Es
thonia. Reports from Moscow this
morning tell of a second submarine
attack on a Russian ship off the
coagt of Esthonia. Russian diplo
matic circles are expected to wage
a war of demands against the lit
tle country before the week is up.
China . . ,
Tientsin was the scene yesterday
of a series of raids by Japanese
plain-clothes men on buildings in
the British concession. Files were
ransacked, and several foreigners,
including Americans, were held for
questioning. The United Press of
fices were search for no appar
ent reason by armed Japanese.
International . . ,
Russia and Germany are deep
in conference today over problems
that will, according to confident
observers, make or break the fu
ture of Europe. The strength of
their determination will test all
opposition, and should effect this
country’s action on the neutrality
act. President Roosevelt is due for
further comment on the situation
in the near future, but advance in
formation reveals that the admin
stration has remained completely
n the dark, regarding the Russo
Propaganda .., !
A resolution was introduced into
Congress yesterday that would set <

efforts on the part of foreign coun
