Many Troubles Ccme

The Attorney general's office miyfct j
well be classed as tho trouble depart- j

requires that the county clerks shall
compare the signatures of names sign
ed to initiative petitions with We reg
istration books, cards, and blanks on
file in his office, and shall attach to
the sheets of said petition containing
such signatures his certificate to the
secretary of state, giving the form in
which this shall be (tone. This sounds
simple enough, but it has its dips,
spurs and angles as an old miner would
say. For instance: what will a poor
clerk do when the petition contains
the name of J. Smith when on the reg
istration books Hhe oaly mame like
that is John Smith. Shall the county
clerk jump at the conclusion that
and John are the same person! Again

Will Beferved Here
In keeing with an annual custom,
recently become statewide, Friday,
May 10, will bo observed among Salem
alumni of the Jniversity of Oregon,
as University Day, when all college
nlninni in the city will assemble at tho
Y. W. C. A. rooms for a general jolli
fication, in the nature of a get to-geth-
er gathering, intended to foster and
stimulate the college spirit among lo
cal graduates. Friday of junior week
is thus kept every year at Kugenc,
when the students devote the day to
beautifying the campus grounds and
making general iprovements. Tho ob
servance of University Day has since
become more or less state wide, with
alumni associations in various commu
nities taking note of tko day in ono
form or another.
