Year’s Student Union Activities Reviewed
“Student Union Nears'’ read
the headlines of the Emerald of
February 15, but since that time
students have been wondering
just how near it has become. Is
it near at all?
Prior to the February 15 an
nouncement from the capital
events had been shaping up here
on the campus. A frosh commit
tee of 17 was formed to arouse
student interest, which added to
the already existent varsity and
sophomore committees. Oglesby
Young was named head of the
The real barrage came Febru
ary 15 when a state legislative
committee okayed a bill to per
mit $250,000 to be borrowed to
finance the project. Important
fact of this bill was that it was
not a grant but merely gave per
mission to borrow the money.
The bill went to the senate.
February 22 the senate passed
the bill. While it was before the
legislature, the sophomore com
mittee decided to publish a week
ly paper, “Union Now.”
During spring vacation the bill
passed the legislature, was signed,
and became law. Also during the
vacation a fact-finding student
faculty committee was appoint
ed by President Donald M. Erb.
May 7 the student-faculty
committee gave its decision on
the site question: first, Deady;
second, Sheldon, and third, mill
race. At the same time the com
mittee made plans for the con
tents of the union.
On the financial side, as of
July 1, 1940, the fund stood at
approximately $40,000. Of this
amount $12,000 was in cash, $15,
000 was loaned to the ASUO, and
approxirm\ 2ly $13,000 invested
in real estatee.
Contributed to the fund thiar
year is $468.10 from the senior
class, $799.29 from Sigma Delta
Chi from the proceeds of the Kay
Kyser dance, $53.64 from Co-op
receipts of 1939-40, and $10 from
the Oregon Mothers club of
The preliminary steps have
been made and in the future lies
only actual plans for financing
and construction.
