TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10 1012. No. 36 MANY COLLEGE MEN WHOLLY OR IN PART PAY OWN EXPENSES Y. M. INVESTIGATIONS SHOW 53 PER CENT OF MEN STUDENTS WORK FOR EDUCATION FRUTERNITYMEN NO EXCEPTION Prc.fs. Give Influence of Y. M. C. A. as Cause for Democratic Conditions. Investigations conducted by Charles W. Koyl, secretary of the Y. M. C. A., and Karl Martzloff, head of the Y. M. C. A. social service committee, have proved that 53 per cent of all men in attendance at the University are either wholly or in part self-sup porting. Of these men, about one third were found to live in fraterni ties. The figures are. 54 in fraterni ties, and 111 in the dormitory and in town. These results will compare favor ably with any college or university in the country. The larger part of the 53 per cent of students are almost wholly self-supporting. This is espe cially true of the students outside fraternities, although exact statistics were not available on this point. A surprisingly large number of men are working at odd jobs while attending school, in addition to those working for their board or rooms. It is in this connection that the Y. M. C. A. is interested, and a flourishing em ployment agency is maintained for the students’ aid. A canvass of the various fraterni ties in the University brought out the following figures in regard to the number of students entirely or partly self-supporting: Entirely. Partly. Beta Theta Pi. 3 3 Kappa Sigma . 3 0 Alpha Tau Omega. 3 6 Sigma Nu . 3 3 Zeta Phi . 5 * 2 Phi Gamma Delta. 3 4 Phi Delta Theta. ... 2 5 Sigma Chi . 3 4 Avava . 2 0 27 27 The report of the Y. M. C. A. Em ployment Bureau shows that during November alone a total cash return of $311.55 was secured for the students, benefiting 37 men. Of this amount, $238 was for regular jobs given to six (Continued on last page.) GLEE CLUB REGOGMIZED Women's Glee Allowed Temporary Status as Student Body Enterprise. To place the Girls’ Glee Club on an an equal footing with any other var sity enterprise by making it a reg ular Student Body activity, is the purpose seen in an action of the Exe cutive Council meeting held Satur day. A motion was carried, “that the Girls’ Glee Club be granted the tem porary status of a regular branch of Student Body activities, to be gov erned by the rules now governing the University of Oregon Glee Club, this status to continue until the 21st of March.” The latter clause indicates that a motion will be introduced at the reg ular Student Body meeting March 21. to make the Girls’ Club a perma nent Student Body7 enterprise. This means that the Co-eds would be backed up by that organization in their future efforts. “DEADY BUG” NEW NAME OF 0RE60N MONTHLY HUMOROUS DEPARTMENT Graduate Coach System and Golf Among Subjects Treated in December Number. “Look out Maybelle, a ‘Deady Bug’ is coming.” “Where?” “In the Ore gon Monthly for December.

Heretofore th lack of funds has been a serious drawback, but the management hopes to overcome this evil and get out a regular periodical. OREGON CLUB AND ZETA PHI LEAD IN HAND BALL Officials Endeavor to Revive Lagging Interest—Class Games to Start Soon. Interest in the inter-fraternity handball tournament seems to be dragging, Only two games having been played during the last several days. Austin Brownell and Harold Quigley, representing Zeta Phi, de feated Henry Fowler and Watson, the Sigma Chi team, by 21 to 10 and 21 to 12 scores. Zeta Phi also won from the Sigma Nu team of Edward Geary and Everett Stuller in 21 to 3 and 21 to 7 games. The game scheduled for Monday, between the Dormitory and Phi Delta Theta, was indefinitely postponed, as the Phi Delta Theta team failed to appear. The League officials are making an effort to have the teams follow the regular schedule, as it is desired to (Continued on third page.) LEONE GASS BAER 10 SPEAK TO NEWS GLASS “Women in Newspapers,” is Subject Announced—Miss Baer One of First Women Jurors. Miss Leone Cass Baer will address the Journalism class next Wednesday afternoon. The subject of her talk will be “Women in Newspapers.” Miss Baer fyas the distinction of being one of the twelve women jurors who made up the first jury composed entirely of women ever impaneled in Oregon.

She w’ill return to Portland Wednes day evening, making the trip in the private car of Valeska Suratt, the leading lady of the “Kiss Waltz,” who passes through Eugene en route to Portland from San Francisco. EMERALD'S SUBSCRIPTION LISI RECORD BREAKER WITH RE4 PAID SUBSCRIRERS SHOWS INCREASE OF 50 PER CENT OVER PREVIOUS RECORDS, and is of cosmopolitan COMPOSITION — more alumni SUBSCRIBERS THAN STUDENTS. BUT CAMPUS CIRCU LATION ALSO LARGER THAN IN PREVIOUS YEARS The Emerald, like a youngster at the time he steps into his first long trousers, has been taking long strides in growth during the past year. A six column paper, publishing each week over 650 inches of news, appear ing three times a week, it now ranks among the foremost college newspa pers of the Pacific Northwest. The report of the circulation manager, given out today and printed below, is likewise characteristic of the paper’s growth. Today the Emerald has 50 per cent more paid subscribers than at any previous year of its publica tion. The Emerald’s total circulation is 1146. This number is divided as fol lows: Subscribers, mailed .614 i Campus student subscribers.314 ! City subscribers .143 Exchanges . 75 These figures are interesting in that they show what a comparatively small part of the circulation goes to the students, and how large a number goes to members of the Alumni. The Emerald by these figures is actually read more by the alumni than by stu dents. This is in spite of the fact that the paper is primarily a newspa per of the students. The campus student subscribers numbers but 314. This is less than a third of the total. Those listed as "city subscribers,” represent advertis ers, alumni, and a few students living too far away from the campus for carrier delivery. The "subscribers mailed,” numbering 814, represent al most wholly papers going to the alumni. The number does not neces sarily show that the Alumni are more loyal to the college paper than the students, for the roll of the graduates is larger. But it does show how great an interest these, who leave the Uni versity, are taking in their Alma Mater. It also indicates that the Em erald cannot be edited for but one class of readers, but must be cosmo politan enough to appeal to business and professional men, and college pro fessors, as well as students. The number of subscribers upon the campus, however, is fairly large in comparison to previous years. The figure 314 is 50 or 60 larger than it has ever been before. It means that one Emerald is distributed for every two students. INTEREST IN GOLF Says He Will (Jive “Gym” Credits for Consistent Play, and Offers Cup for Tournament. Resulting from the announcement yesterday by “Bill” Hayward that "gym” credits will be given for reg ular and consistent golf playing, 20 men have signed up for “cow pasture pool,” and the College Hill course will soon be echoing with, “Fore! On the green in two!” Hayward has not only signified his intention of helping the movement along by giving “gym” credits, but has come forward with the offer of a handsome cup to the winner of a handicap tournament, to be played this winter. • He says: “While I have not played golf for several years, I am still in- i terested in the sport and intend to take up the game later myself. I will give ‘gym’ credits to those who play regularly and conscientiously, and will arrange to have someone on the links to check the cards. An hour of outdoor exercise is of more benefit than an hour’s work in the gym, and I hope enough will play to make this scheme a go.” The course has recently been moved and the weeds removed from the putting greens, so that the links are now in better condition than for sev eral years. If enough students join the Golf Club and pay their regular fifty cents dues, it is planned to sand the greens and buy new marking flags.

PROFESSOR BARKER DIVIDES TIME AMONG FOUR LECTURE HALLS Crowded Conditions at University Leave Little Room for Classes in Geography. With a small office in the basement of McClure Hall, and classes in what ever room happens to be vacant, Pro fessor F. L. Barker’s life is a varied one, anil furnishes an example of the crowded condition necessitated at the University. Professor Barker, of the depart ment of Geology and Geography, be gins his day’s work at 8 o’clock in the President’s office in Villard. His !) o’clock class take him to room 21 in Peady, his 10 o’clock class to the basement of the Library, and his 11 o’clock class back to Villard in room three. In the afternoon he is allowed to spend two consecutive hours in Presi dent Campbell’s office. Not only must he rush from one room to another in order to meet his classes, but he must also transfer the books and apparatus necessary in conducting his classes. M PIMRS FAVOR "OPEN DOOR'ATGAHES Spencer Says, Plan Will Increase Interest Shown in Women’s Activities. Fifteen girls, picked at random, were interviewed for their opinion, yesterday afternoon, in regard to al lowing all college students admittance to the women’s basketball games and athletic contests. Nine girls unanimously favored the games being open, four favored the issuance of invitations,—to allow the girls of the teams to invite whoever they wished,—and only two were op posed to the plan. “The hardest thing about it,” said one girl, “is the breaking down of an established custom. Hitherto games have been played before girls only, and now they seem sensitive in open Continued on third page. WORKING STUDENTS BALK ON GUI RULE Petition Circulated by Ben Dorris Asks Modification of New Faculty Edict. Student sentiment against the re cent Faculty ruling in regard to the penalty imposed for cuts, took shape last evening, when a number of stu dents signed a petition circulated by Ben F Dorris, Jr., ’15, asking for a reconsideration of the measure. 'this remonstrance, which contained nearly forty names at a late hour- last night, is confined to those students who are either partially or wholly self-supporting, and who declare that their outside work makes necessary “cutting” at certain times. The abol ition of the ruling is not asked, merely the modification of It as it ef fects those who are working outside of college hours. Immediately upon the heels of this petition, a movement was started to circulate a general remonstrance to be signed by all the students, to be presented to the Faculty for their consideration. Those who signed the first, were generally willing to take tne initiative in a more general ob jection to the recent action. The sec ond petition will probably be circul ated this week. In the meantime additional names will be secured on the first petition in an endeavor to get it in shape for presentation to the Faculty at their next meeting. SOPHS AND JUNIORS WIN IN GAME FROM FROSH UNO SENIORS 28-14 SOPHOMORE TALLY AND 18-4 SCORE ROLLED UP BY JUNIORS SHOW UP TEAMS SOPHOMORES PROVE CUSS Upperclass Contest Bloodthirsty — Eight Seniors Play in Final Ten Minutes. Yesterday afternoon the Sopho mores defeated the Freshmen and the Juniors defeated the Seniors in the first games of the inter-class series, '■'lie games were fast and hard fought and featured by the rooting of the Junior and Senior classes. The Sophomores succeeded in roll ing up a score of 28 to 14 for the Freshmen. Although the Freshmen were game fighters, they were no match for the experienced second year men and showed their lack of experience in the new rules. The team work of the Sophomores was the best that was displayed by any of the classes yesterday. They have a well balanced team and will give the Juniors, who won the cham pionship last year, a good contest for first honors. The Juniors beat the Seniors by an 18 to 4 score. The game was rough and many fouls were called. During the last few minutes of play, the bloodthirsty Seniors had as many as eight men on the floor at the same time. But even this number was not able to stop the scoring of the win ning team. The basket throwing of Benson and the guarding of Bried well was prominent. Edgar Shockley refereed. Official Scores.
