OF WASHINGTON GLEE CLUB $4.50 House at Vancouver, R. C., Af ter $1(10 Outlay, Causes Manager to Cancel Dates. UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON. Jan. 10.—The University Glee Club journeyed all the way to Vancouver, B. C., and played before a $4.50 house Monday. The cost of the trip was $160 and as a result of the failure to pay expenses on its initial tour, the Glee Club may cancel all its engage ments for concerts In neighboring ci ties. The student board of control op posed financing a Glee Club trip, but after a press agent trip by Manager Earl Clifford, it was thought that any trips that would be made would pay expenses. An expensive tour was then arranged for the club, and the Vancouver date was the first one. Managers of the club favor drop ping Vancouver, B. C., from the list. State Legislature is Discussed and Woman’s Fitness for Political Work Commended. “The forty days allowed to the ses sion of the State Legislature is en tirely too short to take care of the business that comes before it,” Sena tor W. W Calkins of Eugene stated in an address delivered to the mem bers of the Agora Club Thursday evening on “How Does the Legisla ture Work?” Enlarging upon this thought, Senator Calkins said also, that the members of the lower house change almost every year, and that the new members are invariably inex perienced in parliamentary procedure. Far less time than is needed is al lowed in the short session for new members to become efficient members. Mr. Calkins said further, that he had no use for the Initiative or Referen dum as methods of making law. Mr. Calkins stated that he was pleased with the aptness of .the col lege women in asking questions.

T FACULTY TO CONSIDER A RADICAL REVISION OF COLLEGE CALENDAR DIVISION OF SCHOOL YEAR INTO FOUR SEMESTERS IS PRINCIPLE REVISION POSTED ATHLETES CONSIDERED Will Advise Translation of Diploma Into English-—Four Days (liven for Inland Trip. The most important matter to come before the Faculty meeting Thursday ev.ening in Villard Hall was the pro posed revision of the college calendar. To this end a committee of three will he appointed next week by President Campbell to take the matter under advisement. Several changes have been proposed, among them is one which is in force at the University of Chicago, by which the college year is divided into four semesters, any three of which the students may at tend, and any one of which a member of the faculty may take for a vaca tion. It has also been proposed to open and close the school year one month earlier than at present, thus making the summer vacation extend from May 15 to August 15. The re port of the committee will be consid ered at the next meeting. Two other committees will also be appointed to consider the matter of removing posted men from the teams, and to take under advisement the pro posed change in the diploma given at graduation, translating its present Latin phrases into English, in accord ance with a similar movement in the Eastern colleges. The Faculty grant ed four days for the Inland Empire trip, insted of three, as formerly. The recent action of the Student Council, making the Treasurer of the Associat ed Students a member of the Student Council, was also ratified. At the next meeting, Dr. Joseph Shafer in tends to introduce the motion that the requirement of one year’s residence before graduation be abolished. HAYWARD MUST NOW FILL SIMS’ POSITION Captain Hurts Knee and Oregon's Chances at Same Time—Pink Griffith Wails. (By Jimmie Roberts.) The injury to Captain Sims during Thursday night's practice has put another crimp in the -Varsity’s chance of trimming Idaho on next Monday and Tuesday. Sims’ injured knee will keep him out of both games and will give Coach Hayward another big hole to fill in the Oregon lineup. Boylen or Briedwell will take the place of the captain and Brooks will probably be the choice to start the game at for ward. The shift of Fenton to for ward and Bradshap to center was tiied out for the first time on Thurs day night and showed the possibility of a good combination to develope, but it will be practically impossible to use it against th" Gem Staters on account of Sim’s injury, as Oregon would have to use a green pair of guards to break the Idaho offense. Very little information concerning the strength of th' laho team ha« reached here this season. One wild tale reached the campus a week or so ago of how the Freshmen were trim ming the Varsity five in the nightly encounters and later Pink Griffith came forth with the wail that his team would be all freshmen and in experienced at the inter-collegiate Continued on page two. PROFESSORS SEEK 10 UTILIZE SAWDUST AND WASTE OF SAWMILLS PROF. STAFFORD AND SH1NX CONSTRUCTING RETORT IN HOPES OF COMMF.RClAP ING BY-PRODUCTS IMPORTANT IF SUCCESSFUL Would Create Enormous Industry in Northwest. If Can He Made Com mercially Profit able. In the rear of the engineering build ing'. under a temporary protection from the rain, is a huge iron boiler, upon which mechanics are drilling and hammering. This is to be a large re tort, constructed by the Chemistry de partment. with which two University professors hope to devise a method of utilizing the wood waste from the sawmills, lumber camps and factories off the Northwest to a commercial ad vantage. Professor O. F. Stafford, of the department of chemistry, and Pro fessor F. L. Shinn, have been walk ing all fall upon this project. Al ready the process has been worked out and conducted on a small scale, and the remaining work is to prove its possibilities by an apparatus of com mercial size. The plan is to utilize sawdust, si ibs and stumps and waste wood for the manufacture of acetic acid, alcohol, charcoal, tar, and a score of other products of destructive distillation. These can be easily produced on a small scale, but as yet no process has been invented which will handle the enormous quantities of waste wood from the sawmilling industry of the Northwest to a commercial profit. The cost of handling and the opera tions seem to exceed the value of the products. Professor Stafford is reluctant to talk about his plan until he knows that it. is complete and a success, but j he says: “We feel that we have found : a slight variation in the process of | destructive distillation, which will fContinued on ■ ) BILL HANLEY SLATED FOR NEXT ASSEMBLY Disciple of Bryan Will Ask Mure Thorough Irrigation Course Front <).

Forty-five first year journalists must go to church tomorrow; every one must hear some sermon, and what is more, must know what has been said when he leaves. This is the form of assignment the young newspaper writers received yester day. The members of the class must take notes of the sermon which they hear, and write a “story" to be turned in Monday. From these accounts will be selected a representative one of each church service and offered to one of the local papers. The students are in doubt as to the propriety of writing their “story” on Sunday, some declaring that, to be consistant, they should wait until the following morning to perform jour nalistic labors.
