Ore-Nter Returns To
This spring will see a revival of a traditional UO publication
on the campus—the Ore-Nter, last published in 1947.
A project of the ASUO executive council, the 1949 Ore-Nter
will be co-edited by Olga Yevitch, business manager of the 1949
Oregana, and Trudi Chernis, editor-in-chief of the Oregana.
The Ore-Nter, a publication designed to interest and acquaint
freshmen with the Oregon campus, was discontinued in 1947
due to the fact that there was a problem of duplication with the
UO “Welcome” book. In 1945,
the Ore-Nter was financed by
several campus organizations.
The following year the educa
tional activities board became
financier, and in 1947 both edu
cational activities and the fresh
man week committee co-operat
ed in publishing the book.
It has been felt that the “Wel
come” book, sole publication direct
ed to new students for the past
year, has been directed toward too
many people — parents, students,
and alumni. Therefore, the “Wel
come” book will be condensed and
added to the student life sections
of the Ore-Nter, combining the two
Speaking of the decision to start
a new publication, Miss Yevitch,
explained that “this year's Execu
tive Council felt that the 1948-49
Welcome Book was inadequate in
imparting information and Oregon
spirit to the incoming freshmen.
“The old Ore-Nters and numbers
of handbooks from other campuses
were looked upon as better serving
the purpose of extending a warm
hand of welcome to the new student
and properly introducing him to the
ways of our life here at the Uni
versity. It was felt that this was at
least in part a student problem . . .
a joint student-administrative re
In the process of organizing the
new Ore-Nter, various student lea
ders and administrative personnel
have been contacted.
Miss Yevitch reports that all per
sons contacted thus far have look
ed upon the revival of the Ore-Nter
with “much favor and enthusiasm.”
