different, by having a broad military shoulder and loose, easy hang, while the trousers are made big
and peggy.
THE NEW SOCIETY BRAND CLOTHES are classy, yet dignified; coats made plain, but
with .harp, clear lines. The paten'ed “PERMANENT CREASE” in all Society Brand trousers

I lie experience of the university with
city water and with the water question
has furnished some exciting history in
the past few years. In 1905 a great
typhoid epidemic broke out in the citv
ol Kiigeue, during which the University
of (begun seemed likelv to he com
pletely depopulated, I'hey decided to
take no chances and began boiling all

though (Jure has been little typhoid for
three years and almost everyone is now
using it, the- old prejudice kept the
city water out until the present year.
It wa decided when school opened to
begin using city water again but not
until the past week could the required
plumbing be installed.
When tin- water did so much damage
four years ago it was pumped partly
from the river and partly from a shal

Two Nights for Senior Play
I he committee in charge of the Sen
ior Play has decided that it will be
given on two nights in order to accom
odate better the large crowd that an
nually packs every inch of the Eugene
1 heatre. On former years the play
has been staged so late that it was dif
ficult to find time for more than one
production. Accordingly, while no
definite date has yet been decided upon,
it is the intention if possible to present
this year's play some time in January.
I he committee is hard at work look
ing for possible plays. Professor Glen
has suggested a classical play and it is
probable that the class will fall in line
with the idea. If they succeed in find
ing one that scores the unexampled hit
of the "College Widow" last year when
hundreds were turned away at the door,
the treasurer says that he may be able
to get along with a material reduction
of the tax that he first thought would
he necessary to successfully finance the
closing year of 1910.
As an alternate, in case the classical
da\ idea is not satisfactory, the com
mittee have sent to an eastern company
lor s uuples oj three well known plays,
from which they may choose one to use

however, will not he made for some
Cap Edict Effective
I lie proposal ot the upper classmen
to ignore all freshmen who do not
wear green caps has resulted in a much
fetter compliance with the rules dur
ing the last lew days. All freshmen
trom the club houses are also forbidden
by the members to wear hats.
It is said that one or two local stu
dents are ■'till recalcitrant, however,
and tlu\ are being noted. After Mon
day no one will even speak to them
when passing.
Representative Willis C. Hawley of
the second Oregon Congressional Dis
trict, will speak at the student assembly
next Wednesday morning on the sub
ject of “How a Committee in Congiess
Does Its Work." The oppoitunily af
forded for the students to learn at iirst
hand from one who knows, of the actual
workings of our legislative system, will
be something that few will care to miss
and the attendance will probably be one
of the largest of any assembly thus
far held this year. Special musical
numbers will complete tbe piogram.
Mr. Hawley is serving his second
term at Washington ai d is considered
one of the ablest men that evei repre
sented the state. Previous to his elec
tion, he was professor of history in
Willamette University at Salem, where
his students showed great appreciation
for his services.
Students Work Prof os- tors \
In locating their practice railroad
from Eugene to the highest point in
Hendrick’s Park, the class in railroad
surveying is making rapid progress ow
ing to the presence of several students
who have had practical experience in
railroad work. These men, it is said,
take the work in hand and keep the
instructors so busy making and driving
stakes that they have not time to hold
things back.
1 he class last year could only run
one preliminary line became, having all
the rudiments to learn, they were kept
back by the constant ne* essity of refer
ence to instructors and needless delays
over tribes. 1 his year they are already
starting on the second preliminary line
and expect to run the final location line
before the year is over. ,
Klosche Tillacum Entertains
Dining the past week, the Klosche
Tillacum girls were visited by Mrs. T.
A. Knott of Chicago. Mrs. Knott is a
Delta Delta Delta of Northwestern.
The K. T.s entertained for her Tues
day evening by a dinner party. The
guests were: President Campbell,
Professor Dunn, Professor Howe, Prof
essor Sweetser, Dr. Sheldon, Dr. Gil
bert. Mr. Tiffany, Mrs. Campbell, Mrs.
Dunn, Mrs. Howe, Mrs. Sweetser, Mrs.
Sheldon and Miss Pennell.
On Wedneslay evening a five hundred
j arty was given. The guests were
Messrs. Calvin Sweek, Cecil Espy, Hal
Bean, Wilbur Schumacher, Chester
Moores. William Mott, Frank Stern,
Gerald Eastham, Alonzo Perkins, Mel
\ in Ogden, Leon Farks, Carl Gabrielson,
George White, Ben Williams, Fritz
Dean, Lee Canfield, Edward Flynn and
George Olten. Prizes were won by
-Miss Clare Giboney and Mr. Chester
Moores. Salad, ice cream and coffee
were served by way of refreshments.
Thursday afternoon a rec-.ptidn was
given to town women, faculty women
and University girls. The rooms were
beautifully decorated with chrysanthe
mums, rose berries and sword ferns.
Pineapple ice and wafers were served in
the dining room. Mrs. Knott, Miss
Johnson, Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. Sweet
ser, Mrs. Kuykendall and Miss Wil
liams stood in the receiving line. The
afternoon was pronounced a great suc
Mrs. Knott left Thursday evening on
■ he five-thirty train. She is on her way
to Seattle where she will assist at the
installation of the Washington Chapter
of Delta Delta Delta.
All students using the Library are re
quested to register at the loan desk, if
they have not already done so.
Miss Ermel Miller is spending the
week’s end in Portland.
Professor F. G. Frink, head of the
department of Railroad Engineering at
the University of Oregon, is joint au
thor with Arthur G. Hall, professor of
mathematics at the University of Mich
igan, of a text hook on Trigonometry
that is being adopted by many of the
large Universities in the United States.
The freshmen engineering students at
the University of Oregon will begin
using the book next semester.
Professor Frink has just received
word from Henry Holt & Co., the pub
lishers, that the new text has already
been adopted by the Universities of Chi
cago, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, and
a number of smaller universities and
colleges. Nine hundred copies are re
quired at the University of Illinois
Professor De Cou, head of the math
ematics department, who recommended
the book for use at Oregon, says that
it is an excellent text; simple, but well
written. However, it will not be used
in the three hour mathematics course
because it is felt that these studnets,
not being engineers who intend to con
tinue the study, should use a more
complete work.
1 he new book is briefer than most
trigonometries and the fact has caused
much comment. For example, it is
criticized because it does not work out
the transformation of the functions of
two angles. Professor De Cou, how
ever, says that it. is just as well for the
engineering students to master these
formulae when they study calculus.
Besiles. he says that the Engineering
Department should say when it wants
students to take up any part of their
work, so, while he will insist on the
more advanced texts for the other stu
dents, he will permit the engineers to
use the new book.
