© Activity
For activities the Emerald is your
mecea. The biggest single activity on the
campus, the Emerald is the place to see
and be seen as a prominent student in
campus activities.
As war-industries continue to swallow up the ex
perienced men and women, employers are looking to
colleges for the answer to their personnel question.
They appreciate the college diploma but they demand
it to be flanked by experience.
The Oregon Daily Emerald provides the ammuni
tion for students of the University to arm themselves
so they may face their future employers with the confi
dent statement, "I have had the experience."
The Oregon Daily Emerald also provides a common
meeting ground where professors may see their stu
dents practice what they have told them in class and
so make their recommendations on the record the stu
dents make there. Dean Victor P. Morris of the B.A.
school and Professor W. F. G. Thacher both highly rec
ommend Emerald business office work to their students.
