From Last Spring
The largest transaction in the
student loan fund’s history was
made during registration day
this term. Approximately 540
students were given loans to
raise the total figure to $16,
268.25. Since that date more loans
have been made.
Loan fund figures have been
steadily increasing each term.
Last term 427 notes were given
on registration day to make a
total of $13,066.80, and during the
two days of registration last fall
term $10,121.30 was loaned.
This term’s unprecedented loan
figure is almost twice as much
as the $8,511 loaned during
spring term last year.
The loan fund, which is aiding
a growing number of students,
was founded in 1901 through the
generosity of William M. Ladd of
Portland. Other early contribut
ors were A. S. Roberts of The
Dalles and the class of 1904.
In 1909 Senator R. A. Booth
of Eugene became interested and
through his efforts a number of

Shopping the Town
By MARY KAY RIORDAN
For Easter this
year, it’s a dress
and coat ensem
ble of a new mesh material in
black at Beards. The dress is
simply made and has as detail
trim a big puritan collar of
white pique and lace. The coat
is fitted and collarless so can be
worn with many other light out
fits for spring and summer.
Best of all is the absolutely dif
ferent material—do see it and
other popular styles in capes,
jackets and coats.
Gift of the Hour
For the Easter gift you’ll be
proud to give, see the Easter
gift box candy at Millers. Each
box is wrapped beautifully and
is of such famous makes as

budget range too.
