OREGON UNIVERSITY OF OREGON VOLUME 11 EUGENE, OREGON, SATURDAY, OCT. 23, 1909. No. 8 DRAMATIC CLUB TRYOUT IS SET FOR NEXT WEEK FLOURISHING CONDITION SHOWN AT MEETING THURSDAY NIGHT Committee Appointed and Ar rangements Made for Present ing Several Sketches. “The Dramatic Club is going to be* gin work at once,” said President Kilta this noon. “The first tryout will prob* ably be held next week. All who ex pect to tryout should hand in their names to the membership committee, and begin learning their ‘pieces.’ A number of small sketches will be giv en this semester, the first one within a few weeks. These will lay the foun dation for a large play the next semes ter. The first meeting will be early next week when the program commit tee will select the first sketch to put on.” President Kiltz announces the follow ing committees: Program—Frances Oberteuffer, chair man; Chas. Robinson, Jennie Lilly. Auditing—Roy Terry, Lair Gregory, Miss Clark. Membership-at-large—The president and chairman of the program committee are members of this committee. Profes sor Glen has been appointed as one of the two faculty members, and Charles Robinson the member for the club. UTAH SIGNS CON TRACT FOR DEBATE Manager Steele received word a few clays ago from Utah that the conditions in the contract submitted to them by the University of Oregon -were satisfac tory with the exception of a few minor details. This removes all doubt as to the date of the contest. In a little over a month, the tryouts will take place and the two representa tives chosen. The debate will be held on January 14th, and there is much probability that Portland will be select ed as the place. “If the contest can be financed,” said Manager Steele, speaking of the mat ter, “Portland would be an ideal place to hold it. It would do much to adver tise the University and should be a big thing for college debating in the fu ture.” No longer can both master’s and bachelor’s degrees be seured at once at Whitman. At a recent meeting of the faculty of that institution the stan dard was raised and rulings made which sets at rest much former doubt as to the requirements for a master’s degree. Due to an anonymous gift, Columbia University is to have a new $400,000 building, devoted entirely to the School of Domestic Economy. Dr. Fred G. Thayer, ’03, is practicing medicine at Medford, Oregon. THE SENIORS COMPLAIN AND AVOID TREASURER Dissatisfaction is apparent among members of the senior class over their action last Wednesday. At that time they held a quaker like silence, accept ed Manager Loosley's report on the Oregana and voted a $2.50 class tax to till the deficit in the treasury. Now they complain that a quorum was not present and rumor has it that a special meeting will be petitioned for to reconsider their action. Some main tain that they were unable to be pres ent on account of conflicting dates and that the report is unsatisfactory in that it fails to account for about two hun dred books. Most of the talk is rather indefinite and as yet no leader has appeared to lead the wanderers out of the fog. They simply bewail the loss of so much good money and avoid the treasurer. It is reported, however, that one has paid his tax. The report of Manager Loosley, which was accepted last Wednesday, is as follows: RESOURCES Cash received on ads.$ 216.50 Cash received on 132 books at $1.25 . 165.00 Cash received on 104 books at $1.50 . 156.00 Cash received on 32 books at 50 cents . 16.00 Cach received from Organiza tions . 120.00 ‘Iotal . $773 50 Cash due on advertising.$ 6.00 Cash on hand . 10.00 Cash hooks sold at Eaton’s.. 4.00 LIABILITIES Bills Paid Bucher Eng.

The last three events wdere not con ic.-tcd l'or but were compromised giv ing the meet to the sophomores, 42 to 35 . T he meet was very interesting and brought forth a number of surprises, especially among the freshmen. The •'llicf ones were Krieger who defeated Hawkins in the hundred, and McClure who beat Garrabrandt in the three quar ter. Kuykendall did remarkably well, tak ing several points for the freshmen and Holmes, a new man, won the low hur dles.

FRESHMEN GO AND GET ACQUAINTED There were not far from a hundred and fifty freshmen present at the ac quaintance party at the Chi Omega house last night. Formal introductions were for the most part dispensed with, and everybody had the j oiliest of times. Early in the evening a sack containing a few beans was given each one with the instructions that each time one said “yes” or “no” he was to give a bean to the one asking the question, the ob ject being to get as many beans as pos sible. This kept things moving all the time. There were a few vocal and in strumental pieces by talented members of the class. Dainty dishes of straw berry ice cream were served with wafers late in the evening. It was quite a little after Trainer Hayward’s bed time hour when the jolly crowd dispersed and each one feeling that the first social event of the class of 1913 had been the jolliest possible. BILL MAIN WILL GET OUT CLASSY PROGRAMS Bill Main, Oregon's star halfback, has been granted permission by the Mer ) chants Protective Association to solicit adds for the program he is getting out for the O. A. C. game. He also in tends to get one out for the Idaho game in Portland, which he says will be the "classiest” thing in that line ever produced in the Northwest. Main has had much experience in the business of getting out programs and ^hose who know him say he will “make |ood” on these. He has samples of the programs used at all the big Cali fornia-Stanford games, the ideas in which he will incorporate with some of his own. The programs will both contain splendid cuts of the coaches, trainers, captains, and managers of the two con testing teams besides group pictures of all the men. FRESHMEN REPRESENT ED ON GRAND STAND A sensation awaited those who came to the University this morning, for dur ing the night the freshmen had painted a large “1913” on the roof of the grand stand on Kincaid Field. The student body and President Campbell at once took steps to have it removed in compliance to the rule laid down several years ago that no class numerals should be allowed on the col lege buildings. Accordingly the fresh men got busy this afternoon and paint ed over the sign. Many students ex pressed regret that it had to go, saying that it was about the only representa tive the freshmen have on the field. GAME IN TWO WEEKS IF SOPHS WILL PLAY The freshmen-sophomore football game will he played within the next two weeks, the sophomores willing,” said President Jett of the freshman class last night. “Our cmomittee con sisting of Messrs. Warner, Barzee and Kuykendall are expected to confer with the sophomore committee early in the week and arrange the date and other details. The game is to be strictly ‘scrub’, no men who have played the game in college neitig expected to take part. All freshmen who desire a place on the team should apply to the com mittee in charge it once.” SUCCESSFUL CONTEST FOR YELLS IS CLOSED The yell and song contest ends to night. The decision as to who will win the prizes will be given out tomorrow. Yell Leader Alton says that there have been a great variety of yells and songs handed in, and they expect to be amply repaid for their efforts in the af fair. Anthony Blais, ex-’()9, and Miss Jennie Peterson, of Whitehall, Mich., were mar ried in Eugene Saturday, October the ninth. GIRLS ONLY AT DANCETN GYM (it* NASIIM TONIGHT CO-EDS DECLARE THE MEN ARE SUPERFLUOUS ANYWAY Conventional Full Dress Is Com pulsory and Carriages in Order —Chaperones Will be “Fixed.” The University of Oregon co-ed will be in her glory tonight. The occasion is the co-ed ball in the gymnasium. It is to be a regulation dance with the trifling exception that mere man, usual ly superfluous, will be entirely dispensed with. The girls propose to set an example to the Varsity gallants and have been busy for a week securing partners, as stags" are positively not admitted. The ladies in decollete are going to show how bewitching the Oregon girl really is. The "gentlemen’ will donn the “con ventional black and white’’ and offer the protection of their strong right arms. Any spies or evesdroppers will be dealt with summarily. The time is 7:45, the place the Var sity gym and the price the very rea sonable sum of 25 cents, assessed merely to buy refreshments and music. This ositively does not include the car riage each beau is expected to furnish. A corps of discreet chaperons will be on hand with instructions to overlook flirtations. The mandolin club will furnish the music. The grand march will start at 7:45 sharp and the affair will conclude at 10:00. Patronesses are, Mrs. P. L. Camp bell, Mrs. Dodd, Mrs. Duff, Miss John ston, Mrs. Thrall, Mrs. Dunston, Mrs. Stearns and Mrs. Pennell. TWO TAKE RHODES SCHOLARSHIP EXAMS “Only two took the examinations for the Rhodes Scholarships at Salem this week,” said Professor Dunn, who rep resented the University of Oregon on the board of supervising examiners. These were Ralph Spencer McKee, of McMinnville College, and Stiph Thomp son, of the University of Wisconsin. The examination papers were forward ed at once to Oxford, but it will be six weeks or two months before the results can be known.” It is rumored that C. Bolton Hamble and Cecil Lyans, both graduates of the University of Oregon, who took the examinations at previous times, may apply this year as all “hold overs” have the right to do. Mr. Hamble is living in Eugene at present and Mr. Lyans is teaching at Coquille. The only University of Oregon man, so far as is known, to take the examina tions this year is Ellsworth Morgan, who took them at the University of Washington at Seattle. German club meets Tuesday night at the Kloshe Tillicum house, 7:30, as was originally announced instead of at the Gamma Phi Beta House, as was report ed later.
