'Wheel Space' in Building Goes Begging
ivesuits oi the informal survey (concern
ing student identification of Palmer Hoyt,
Eldon Johnson, and Richard Neuberger)
published Tuesday bear out one professor's
contention that many college students exist
in a rather peculiar world.
This world seemingly has no
newspapers, radios, magaz
ines, or books that do not re
late to whatever subjects the
student is currently studying.
This is probably a harsher,
judgment than the situation
demands, but additional evi
dence that tends to validate
it is shown in the current
campus reaction to another survey: the AS
UO executive council’s request for informa
tion from campus groups on office space
needs in the Student Union building.
’1 he council has had some “Oregon Union
Building Needs Survey” blanks mimeograph
ed. arranged to have them available at the
Old Oregon office, Room 8, Friendly hall,
and published this news in the Emerald. The
council imagined that officers of the various
campus organizations which anticipate using
student union facilities would flock to pick
up the blanks and indicate their groups’
needs. The response could have been better.
Monday night the council meets to discuss
the completed survey blanks. It will make its
decisions on the worth of each organization’s
desire for office space, desks, lockers, or files,
and then present the decisions to the archi
tects so they can draw up final plans.
It would help the council if it knew whether
the classes (freshman through senior) de
sire to use the Union building in the future
as headquarters for their dances, weekends,
and other functions. No class officers have
picked up survey blanks as yet. It would
help if the council knew what honoraries and
organizations such as the Ski Club, Phi Mu
Alpha Sinfonia, or the International Re
lations Club desire in the way of space, even
if the desire is just for filing cabinets close
to a convenient meeting place. The organiza
tions mentioned have filled out blanks; many
comparable groups have not.
The survey blanks will be available in the
Old Oregon office Friday afternoon from 3
to 5 p. m. If filled out and returned by Mon
day at 5 the executive council will be glad to
Harbingers: The Last Word
What is this cagey thing, called a Harbinger of Spring?
From Life magazine to the Emerald Harbingers of Spring
have been holding their own in wordage. Always harbingers.
They’re unescapable. What is the meaning of this word so
firmly linked with spring?
According to a reliable authority—(Mr. Webster), a har
binger is “One sent ahead to arrange for lodgings; a fore
Running ahead, then, are the first crocus in grandma’s
garden, the baseball rookey, the shortage of jobs, the dunkel
brau from grandma’s celler, muddy roads, picnics at the U.,
grandma’s homemade ice cream, measles, Russian Easter
eggs, electioneering, the violets under grandma’s hedgerow—
but no, not grandma herself. She is willing to stay home and
not rush ahead, uninvited, to arrange for lodgings. If there
were more people like grandma, the world would be a better
place; less juvenile delinquency.
Anyway, weeks have passed; the lodgings ought to be all
arranged for by now.
Therefore we should like to ask one timid little question of
all the magazines and newspapers from Life to the Emerald.

An English major, she came to
the University as a junior, after at
tending Lewis and Clark college in
Portland for two years.
The small, effervescent girl with
her black hair and creamy white
skin is an excellent choice for the
small, spirited Hermia. Her leading
man is Don Smith as Lysander.
The ornate Elizabethan costumes
worn in the play are fascinating to
her, particularly the plumed hats
because ‘‘they’re such fun.”
