The Juniors and Junior Weekend
EEKS of planning along lines dictated
by years of tradition will end at noon
today when the curtain rolls up on the Uni
versity’s greatest show—Junior Weekend. To
alums back on the campus after years of ab
sence, it is replete with memories of the “good
old days”; to visitors’here for the first time,
it is an itiside glimpse of University life; and
to students, it is a chance to show outsiders
their University.
Today the University is celebrating the
fiftieth annual junior class fete and the thirty
second annual Junior Weekend. Beginning in
1800 when the juniors took a day off for a
class celebration, Junior Weekend was offi
cially made an all-University function in 1908.
INURING the first eighteen years the cele
bration was mainly a junior vs. sopho
more affair climaxing when the juniors at
tempted to nail their class flag to a pole in
front of Villard hall and the sophomores tried
to get it down. In 1906 President Campbell
satv where the plan was leading and suggested
that the two classes direct their efforts in a
more constructive vein. Not until two years
later was the affair finally named Junior
Weekend and the celebration as the Univer
sity knows it today finally inaugurated.
Visiting alums and mothers will find that
a great deal has changed since the first Junior
Weekend. They will find the sophomore-fresh
man tug-of-war replacing the old flag raising
stunt, they will find many additional events
to take their time and they will find a student
body of over 3500 participating.
rJ''IIE addition of the campus luncheon,
canoe fete, junior prom, and numerous
Other events heaped a great deal more work
upon the shoulders of the Juniors. Throughout
the years they have, with the aid of the ad
ministration, successfully met these added
In some ways it might be r,aid that the
eelebration goes under a misnomer, for the
three-day- event as we now know it is really
an all-University function with the entire stu
dent body participating. In other ways, and as
a fitting tribute to those who plan and direct
the entire affair it can rightfully be called
‘ ‘ Junior Weekend. ’ ’—L. N.
United They Stand..The U of O Faculty
rjpiIE faculty of the University of Oregon is
comparatively a satisfied group, treated
pretty much the way it wants to be treated
and encouraged from above in its work.
Under Dr. Donald Erb, president of the
University, the faculty has developed an ad
mirable esprit de corps, which last week mani
fested itself in a rather gracious gesture
highly commendatory to at least, six faculty
In many a university it is unfortunately
too often true that the president becomes so
busy with administrative affairs that he tends
to think in terms of regents, taxpayers, and
long-range perspectives, losing contact, with
his faculty as he looks to the horizon.
At the University of Oregon there is a
rather unique group among the faculty de
signed against just this possibility. It is
known as the advisory council. Dr. Erb is
chairman and there are six other members. It
is the duty of this council to advise the presi
dent on all matters of administrative policy
and public relations, and it has many other
varied and important duties sufficient to make
it the most important faculty group.

J^AST Aveek the faculty senate voted as to
the membership of the faculty advisory
council for next year. No nominations were
permitted, but every senate member voted
six names on his ballot. When the votes were
counted it was found that the six who had
held office this year were reelected, a fine
tribute to the kind of service they had ren
As long as the faculty feels that, way
among itself the University is not doing so
The prize for the best remark of the week
should go to some Emerald sports reporter
who, upon hearing the hrtest war news from
Europe last night, remarked that someone
ought to step in and take Germany while she
was out helping herself to other countries.
