The week preceding Hallowe'en
was Busy one for normal students.
On October 21 the moving picture,
"Civilization," was presented to a
large and appreciative audience. On
the Thursday following we were en
tertained by Mr. Whipp, a Portland
soloist, who gave a good program
of musical numbens. On October 28
two Hallowe'en parties given by the
juniors and seniors, respectively, were
held in the training school and the
normal gymnasium. The evening of
November 3 was the occasion of the
joint meeting of the Vespertine, Del
phian and Normal societies. The
masque, "Pandora," was staged by
the Delphian society and the debate
and musical numbers of the normals
were all very much appreciated by
the audience. On account of an acci
dent to the lighting system the Ves
pertines were compelled to postpone
their program, but it will be an event
to be looked forward to in the future.
On Friday, November 3, Mr. Starr,
a regent of the Oregon Normal paid
us a welcome visit and incidentally
enlightened the student body on some
of the laws which were on the bal
lot. Miss Dinins, our third and fourth
grade critic, gave an unusual chapel
talk in the form of a Riley program
by the pupils of her room. Each bud
ding orator, reader and musician was
heartily applauded by the students,
for it was a treat all enjoyed.
On November 4 the junior girls
were entertained at tea in the dormi
tory parlors. This tea added anoffher
to the list of successful affairs that
have been held in the dormitory under
the management of that able hostess,
Miss Todd, dean of women.
President Ackerman, who has been
giving lectures at institutes in east
ern Oregon counties, has returned to
One has only toiote the added spir
it and enthnsism awakened in the
student body when the dhair in chapel
which has been vacant for a time is
again filled to realize how -great is
the influence of the man who leads
in the normal. Under his guidance
our school is forging ahead in all ac
tivities. . Misses West, Kennon and Butler of
the Normal faculty were entertained
in Eugene on "Homecoming" day by
Miss Fox, dean of women at the university.
Honor Residents' Birthday.
Tuesday, November 7 is a red let
ter on the calendar of the Oregon
Normal school. The person who said
bouquets are thrown only at those
who have left us would have to change
hip viewpoint immediately had he
visited our school on that day. For.
during the regular chapel period 420
students, in song and speech, showed
their appreciation and love of the
man at the head of our school. The
alert, happy faces turned toward the.
president's chair and the enthusiasm
and good feeling which surcharged
the atmosphere evidenced the heart
felt spirit which was the inspiration
of this expression of honor for Pres
ident Ackerman. A huge lighted cake
was carried in at the close of this
enjoyable hour by Mr. Ingram, pres
ident of the student body, who was
attired in a chef's cap and apron.
This concluded the students' share
jn the festivities of the day and the
annual faculty banquet was held in
the evening in the domestic science
department of the training school.
There the excellent dinner and the
witty speeches brought about a fit
ting close to one of the brightest days
the Normal has had this year.
