OF RED GROSS STAMPS
Miss Bonisteel Heads Movement in
Fight Against Great White
The University of Oregon women
intend to raise thirty dollars by the
sale of Red Cross stamps among the
students. The Fortnightly Club in
Eugene, which each year has charge
of the sale of these stamps for the
collection of funds for the war against
tuberculosis, has asked the Univer
sity women to co-operate this year.
Miss Pearle Bonisteel, who is in
charge of the sale in the University,
has distributed sheets of the stamps
to the various sorority and club
houses, disposing of from two to four
one-dollar sheets in every house. She
also plans to appoint several girls to
sell stamps in booths on the campus.

death of Sidney Carton. Professor
Reddie’s interpretation lay not merely
in his powerful dramatization, but in
his skillful choice of selection as

sham is in seventh place and Erwing
in ninth position.
I am compelled to move the first
of the year and will occupy the
building just north of the Hoff
man Hotel and will not have room
for all my extensive line.
