Cnmnus Oinninns
I I- '
Along with the news of the recent earthquake came the world
shaking decision of the Eugene city council to restore the mill
race. This was music to the ear. of the U of O students and towns
people who have been fighting and hoping for four years to have
one of the university's oldest traditions brought back to the
campus. The council promptly
passed the recommendation of
the Millrace Park association
and restoration processes will
begin next week.
Spring term enrollment at the
university has hit a new high,
according to the registrar who
reports that more than 5.400
students are attending classes.
The plan for a program to
rate the faculty has materialized
and a committee made up en
tirely of qualified graduating
seniors is taking over the task
of selecting an impartial sys
tem that may be used effect
lvely. Of course much pro and
con comment has been aroused
with regard to the program, the
purpose of which is to help
members of the faculty in the
presentation of their material
and perhaps provide stimulation
of enthusiasm for their subject.
Talk of platforms, nomina
tion speeches and general cam
paigning is already beginning to
electrify the political atmos
phere and the two parties on
the campus are searching for
potential politicos who will rep
resent their policies in the forth
coming ASUO election.
Students are urged to enter
contest which is sponsored
each spring term by the Asso
ciation of Patrons and Friends
of the University of Oregon Li
brary. Cash awards will be giv
en to the students who present
the best general library, spe
cialized library and graduate
students' library. A poetry con
test sponsored by the English
department is also open to all
interested students. The Uni
versity of Oregon is the high
est-ranking campus in the na
tion for the number and quality
of personal libraries submitted
by students.
"1001 Nights" was chosen by
committee members as the
theme for Junior week-end
which will take place May 6 to
8. Junior class vice-president.
Bob Weber, was in charge of
theme selection. Jeanne Hoff
man is chairman of the "flying
speeches" program for the
week-end. She is in charge of
groups who travel from house
to house advertising the festivi
ties of Oregon's greatest spring
term function. The all-campus
sing eliminations will be held
next Friday night when com
peting groups will be narrowed
to ten women's and men's organizations.
The starting gun will go off
Friday afternoon when more
than S00 high school girls from
all parts of the state come to
the campus for the annual As
sociated Women Students week
end. The girls will be enter
tained at an all-campus vaude
ville show Friday evening when
16 organizations introduce the
first presentation of its kind on
the campus. Proceeds from the
program will go to the World
Student Service fund. The
luncheon honoring the girls Sat
urday noon will be followed by
tours and a "nickle hop" will
end Saturday's activities. Sun
day the' girls will attend an
Easter sunrise service at Mc
Arthur court and exchange din
ners will be held at the various
living organizations in the ear

of the co-ed's college life will
