It’ll be in other hands soon.
The student-faculty committee
by the end of this week will have
finished their job and will have
submitted their report to Dr.
Erb. The report, representing
weeks of hard work, suggested
sites chosen not by the commit
tee but by the students who were
interested enough to state their
preferences. Not everybody could
be pleased but the majority is
represented in choosing the lo
cation west of Deady as the most
plausible and convenient place.
The committee has worked
without the slightest suggestion
of pressure from outside groups
since they judged with the inter
est of students at large in one
hand and a budget in the other.
Now that the job is finished it
is equally important that stu
dents increase their interest in
the student union building. This
is the stage in which many fine
projects die and without the need
for the building shown, the long
hours spent on the plans will
again be of no avail.
The years ahead look slightly
dusky for the possibility of build
ing but if we continue the enthu
siasm and demand sensible ac
tion, we will get action. It is
slightly ironic that affairs on the
other side of the world could af
fect the speed with which we will
have our building.
Here’s a fact that few Univer
sity people know concerning the
organization that promotes and
unites the student unions on oth
er campuses in America. The
University of Oregon is a mem
ber of the National Association of
Student Unions even though we
do not as yet have a building.
Photos to Come
The association announced yes
terday that they are sending the
University a group of photo
graphs showing the plans and
building of other campus pro
jects. This exhibit will reach the
campus about the middle of May
and will be on display a few
weeks for the students. This
means of promotion is valuable
since they will be able to see how
successful other student unions

F. S. Dunn Library
More than 1,500 books from
the private library of the late
Professor ITrederic S. Dunn, of
the University of Oregon, have
been acquired by the University
library. Barrian Dunn and Mrs.
Nathan Barrett, son and daugh
ter of Professor Dunn, gave most
of the volumes but they were se
cured partly by purchase.
A graduate of both the Univer
sity of Oregon and Harvard Uni
versity, Professor Dunn was the
head of the department of Latin
here at the time of his death.
More than 300 volumes which
are principally in the field of Ro
man literature and history have
been found that do not duplicate
materials already in the Univer
sity library. Several of the vol
umes were printed more than
300 years ago.
