THE SEASON TICKETS
It seems that there has been some
misunderstanding regarding the sea
son ticket system. The cost of the
tickets was five dollars, which could
be paid in two installments of two
and one-half dollars each. Upon
payment of the first installment a
receipt in the shape of a ticket was
ifiven. Upon December I the second
installment became payable. The
payment of the amount and the pres
entation of the ticket receipting the
first payment entitled one to a ticket
good for all the year.
By this system one receives for
five dollars what he otherwise would
have to pay ten and one-half dollars
THE SOPHOMORE HOI*
The class of 1915 certainly did it
self proud at the annual Sophomore
Hop Saturday evening. The decora
tions, music, punch and, in short, the
whole affair, was equal, if not su
perior to any other class dance given
on the campus.
Do your Christmas shopping early!
Hut don’t, in your zeal, forget the
new cutting rule, and inadvertently
neglect lo attend Friday’s classes.
You’re liable to need that extra cre
dit some day.
NEXT RHODES SCHOLAR

Word was received yesterday from
Dr. O. C. I’arkin, American Secretary
to the Rhodes Trust, that the plan
suggested hy him in reference to the
candidates for the Rhodes Scholar

view of the fact that the questions

should proceed to appoint the next
Rhodes scholar from the two Oregon
candidates, (leorge Stewart, Jr., of
McMinnville, and l.uton Ackerson, of
the University, on the supposition
that the one cL wen xx i11 pass these
examinations next f. ' at Oxford. The

Manager (ionry Declares Student
Tickets Void Until Second I’ay
inents Are Made.
The 'large number of names yet to
he seen in lOugene is emphasized bv
Arthur Geary concerning the use of
the Student Hody ticket. Immediately
after vacation the basketball season
will commence. Among the events
are two basketball names with 0. A.
two with the University of Wasn
innton, with Willamette University,
and with the colleges of the Inland
Umpire. Two baseball names will be
played with O. A. two with the
l Diversity of Washiunton, and twu
w:th Willamette University. A track
meet will be held in Kunene with
Multnomah Several indoor meets
will also occur early in the spring.
Of the $1’J worth of entertainment,
which the $f> ticket is said to entitle
the bolder, only $l.t>0 worth has been
received, declares Geary, lie states.
’‘There appears to he a misunder
standinn about the use of this ticket,
,specially amonn the women students
repardinn the installment plan of
payinp for the tickets. The portion
paid down at the first of the year pays
but half the cost of the ticket lhe
installment plan was followed at the
suggestion of President Spencer, of
the \ssociated Students, that many
o* the students were unable to pay
the whole $5 at one time. The Stu
dent Hody ticket is not a money
makinp scheme and. in fact, will
probably cost the Student Body in
dollars and cents.
"In addition to the athletic fea
tures, the Co-ed debates with Wash
ington will he held in May. The
men's interstate debate occurs March

What the College
Editors are Saying
“Custom has made it practically
necessary for a man to fill his var
sity ball program before he gets to
the hall, if he wants any dances
at all. But even under these condi
tions, many an upperclassman fer
vently swears, as he realizes some
slip-up, that he’ll never account for
every dance on his program before
getting in the hall again.
“Freshmen, however, according to
latest reports, intend to fill their
programs completely, or nearly so,
before attending thetr frolic. To do
this will rob the dance of its real
function -that of promoting ac
“We hear some organizations are
planning to duck freshmen who do
this. ’Tis a worthy movement. Fill
up the tub, sophs!

University Instructor Continues His
Series on Art by Delivering Two
Professor Dunn delivered the second

Thursday afternoon, at 4 o’clock, in
Professor Sweetser’s room in Deady
Hall. The subject of his lecture was
“The I Iliad in Art.” He gave the
story of the Trojan war as illustrated
in art, referring to the different paint
ings in the museums and art galleries
of Europe. Stereopticon pictures,
showing portrait busts of Homer as
he is represented in the ‘Escape of
Aeneis from Troy,’ and also showing
the ruins of Troy were given.
“Troy,” said Professor Dunn, “is
the ancient prototype of Constantino
ple today. The struggle of nations
for a passageway through the strait,
is similar to the struggle of Troy to
obtain possession. The positions held
by the two cities are practically the
A sequel to this lecture, “The Odys
sey in Art,” will be given later.
“The Arch of Titus,” from pictures
in the forum of Rome was the subject
