OEVERAL very sound reasons make themselves very mueli
apparent lliis week for the belief that Ibis year lor the
University will be the great one. possibly tin* start ol a gieat
period in the history of the University. Most of these several
reasons to which this reference holds in particular, can be
met almost any day, doing their jobs about the 1 Diversity —

bands among the faculty.
First attention to this rather unheralded addition to the
University came with the initial faculty meeting, held last
week. After this meeting old faculty member a Iter old taeull y

bers could bo laid at several doors. Of course the depart
ments look their prospects over pretty carefully before they
come to any decisions. They have rigid standards to measure
by. But in the process the matter goes through the hands of
one whose influence probably most shapes the course ol the
faculty and thus of the University as a whole—Ur. la b, presi
dent of the University.
Dr. Erb’s position in regard to new faculty members
is mostly advisory, lb* only recommends. I>ut in looking
over the records for prospective University of Oregon faculty
members Dr. Erb’s investigations and decisions no doubt,
carry plenty of weight. This influence works on all the de
partments, for here is one man who secs the University as a
whole, rather than as a building or an ollicc. Ilis ideas will
be reflected in his work.
Ho the fine hand of the University's young president can
be seen at its work of forever, ceaselessly making this a better
University. No University is sounder than its foundations.
By building thus soundly, President, Krb is only insuring
soundness from bottom to top.

would make the University greater and develop better men

foe I lie onrollee gets more than $1100 worth ot‘ flying time.
Hour by hour I his figure speaks for itself. Anyone who lias
yearned to fly only to he stymied by the cost should see the
answer to their prayers in the new program. It is practically
# ■* * «=
npilEUE are no strings to the offer, strange as it may seem.
It is not an army project. "What the intention of congress
was when it passed the measure, no one can tell. Possibly they
considered the military aspect. Competent observers, how
ever. feel that the idea is that many would fly if they had the
chance, just as many would have driven automobiles in their
earlier days if they had had a chance. If it were a military
measure it would not be exactly the thing for exclusive girls’
schools, which has happened. Even here enrollment may in
clude 10 per e<m1 women, which little scents of war.
Ply in the ointment is that, having won a larger quota
than larger schools, this University must show its right to
keep or increase its quota. Already enough applications are
on hand to fill the It) places. But 1 his is not enough, there
must he more applications. Sophomores and freshmen should
grasp this chance to get their names on the list early, for
next year if not for this year. And who knows, maybe they
may get in with the first crop. ‘‘There is no telling who may
tall by the wayside, either in the physical or other examina
tions." I oca I admin istra tors say. Anyone might be called.
A large number of applications would not only give the
selection committee (which ultipialely reverts to Washing
Ion) a good field to choose from. Not only that, if would
demonstrate University of Oregon interest and ability to sup
port the program. P.y Thursday night it will be past deadline.
It might ho suggested that those interested should not hesitate
for any reason to apply. .It is Oregoni/.ing.
