The Barometer n THE COLLEGE BAROMETER, as the name implies, records the weight of student opinion, the pressure of Faculty legislation, and the height of College spirit at the Oregon Agricultural College. The Barometer had its conception at the meeting of the Amicitia Society during the Winter term of 1895-96. On that occasion the need of a publication to represent the student interests of the College was discussed, with the result that the other societies were {1’w CUt asked to appoint delegates to a joint conference on the subject. These appointments were soon made and accordingly the joint committee met, with instructions to “do something for College jour nalism.” The result was an early organization of an editorial staff, consisting of two members from each of the then existing societies. The Amicitia, Sorosis, and Pierian Societies furnished the staff for Volume I, No. I, and the Jeffersonian, which was just organized, furnished its quota before the second issue. The editor-in-chief and ? business manager were elected by the editorial staff, the former from the staff and the latter from the f Ml ' Student Body. The initial number was issued March 6, 1896. The publication was ushered in as a monthly T and as )een so ssue( during the College years suc-5 ceeding until the beginning of the present volume, when it made its appearance as a weekly. The first - volume consisted of six numbers, including a Com- tyaVTtSveA mencement Number. The undertaking of the publication of The Barometer was something of a burden for the first staff, as not an editor had ever before been connected with the College publication and not one had had any newspaper experience. In spite of being thus handicapped, they produced one of the best volumes of The Barometer, and we doubt not that many a time their successors wished they could do as well.. Below is a list of the staff for the year 1906-07: C. G. Brownell. Editor-in-Chief R. K. Brodie, Isabelle Mallett, Associate Editors Georgia Ewing, Alumni Editor Bertha King, Literary Editor Pearl Leonard, Exchange Editor Mildred Dyer, H. E. Thompson, David Macmillan, Local Editors. P. H. Spillman, Athletic Editor S. L. Bennett, Business Manager R. S. Milln, Assistant Business Manager. AlUUSCi

Thof great is the scandal that canned beef has made, The tale of the canned pup can sink it in shade. Oh! white was the puppie that wagged thro9 the halls And grinned at the whistles and trotted to calls, On the Campus, thro9 buildings at old 0. .4. C. Protected the maidens and caused men to flee; With schemes of revenge the Cadets plotted long And threatened their vengeance in accents full strong. So they petted the puppie, while on to his tail, Their comrades, bold, fastened tin cans and a pail. The pup's outraged feelings, and painful surprise, He showed by his yelpings and tears in his eyes. So down the long alleys, thro' gardens, o'er fence The white puppie scooted, with sorrow intense, Till, late in the night, he rudely was seixed Nenr Alpha's dominion, and cruellv teased. A window was open, through which he was sprawled, And, glad to be sheltered, he sat down and bawled. A fair maiden dwelt in the room where he was And thought in this instance that she had good cause To fear, when her slumbers were rudely disturbed By the wails of the puppie, which could not be curbed. So the fair maiden shrieked and cried for relief, And soon (Oh, so quickly ’twas most past belief) Our own Jackie Horner, our model and pride, Attired in his night robe, full sail was espied. He quickly ejected the innocent pup And the doors of the maid’s hall were quickly closed up. His bare foot assisted the dog out of the door, And the poor little puppie was lonely once more!
