A disposition is being evidenced throughout the state and especially in the immediate vicinity of the University to regard the $175,000 appropriation intended for the Uni versity as already won, and devoted to the purposes for which it was in tended, namely the upbuilding of tile state institution. Possibly this is due to tlie natural disposition of mankind to look on the bright side of things, and possibly to the opti mistic reports which have appetired from time to time in the state press, Ujut as a matter of fact nothing could bo farther from the truth. The appropriation is by no means won, and is, in fact, in more serious danger of being lost than perhaps at any other time this fall. There is still tile attitude of many of the voters of tile state of wanting to lie shown, coupled with the intention to vote against everything that they do not understand. This in itself is commendable, but it must not lie forgotten that such an attitude on the part, of the people makes necessary a much larger amount of work in the way of an education campaign in regard to the iiuostions which will bo settled No vember 4, than would otherwise be necessary. The optimism of the Oregon sup porters at the present time, consti tutes tlie chief danger to the Uni versity. The natural tendency is to lie back and take just a little rest when tilings seem to be going right, hut now there is no time t< r such a layoff, nor Is there any time to make good the loss occasioned by a rest of h.s Kin.1 To carry the appropria tion and save the University men and women oi the future from tils tie. i-ity ( . leaving their state for ; ii v.location, as lias been suggested, i.iv Ives t Co hardest kind of work. Tin: \utw\ tiiMK. Nothing is more deceptive to the athletic dopes!rr titan the element of comparative scores which constantly ■ utors into any attempt to forecast the outcome of the -easou's sports. Nevertheless, the enormous disparity in results for the ldaiio-Oregon game and the Washington O. A. U. contest when compared with the -cores of last year and with each other that a hint at least would seem to be given as to the relative ability of the two leading teams in Oregon. The loss of May is possibly re sponsible to a large extent, for the overwhelming defeat sustained by the O. A. C. eleven Saturday, but In the two weeks which elapse before the Albany contest, Dr. Stewart should easily make good this loss from his big bunch of substitutes. The strongest kind of a fight may be expected from the Corvallis men, and it is a well assured fact that their team will have the best of backing. But in this respect, Ore gon will not be found wanting, and it is to be remembered that Oregon spirit, pure and unadulterated, won the Albany game. This year—well it is extremely doubtful if the ful fillment of that slogan, "Beat Ore gon,’’ will be found possible. WALKER COMPLETES GLEE CLUB SCHEDULE Gillette Will Go as Soloist, Man ager Prophesies the Best Year Ever Graduate-Manager Walker and his assistant, Don-Kice, are making the final arrangements as fasi as possible for the Glee club trip north which will be taken after Christmas, the Club singing in Hood River on December 2 6, the first date sched uled. The Club will go to Boise, Idaho, this year, which means that this is the first year the organization has gone outside of the state on its tours, i’he most easterly point touched so far has been Ontario, which is about one hundred miles this side o.f Boise’. As added attractions the club will carry' as soloist Albert Gillette, a Lugene boy whose voice, according to Club Director Ralph Lyman, is an excellent one. “Mr. Gillette's voice is one of unusual quality and coupled with his natural ability makes him a valuable man,” said Mr. Lyman when speaking of Gil lette’s voice. "If tlie trip north proves profita ble and conditions are such that a trip south would be advisable, tlife club will probably take one this year,” said Manager Walker yester day. "If not, the two trips, one Thanksgiving and the other later will be the only two. “The club this year will carry 26 men and it will probably be one of the best years the club has ever had," says Walker. "The Agricul tural College’s club and ours will ex change concerts this year as they did last. As soon as the quartette which is now singing in Portland returns, which will be the last of the week, pictures of the club will be taken and our newspaper campaign will be started. The big posters which are annually printed and distributed will ho spread broadcast, and an effect ive campaign will be Waged to make this the biggest year the club has ever had. The schedule of the trip has not been completed, but will soon be definitely announced.” EXAMINATION FOR M. A. DEGREE TO BE FORMAL That Candidates Must Appear Before Public, Is Recent Rule of the Faculty In order to accord with recent changes made by the Faculty, the candidate for a master’s degree from ! the University must hereafter take a formal public examination. Heretofore the candidate has tak en 1\is examination in private. I'n ! der the changed rules the examina tion will become a formal event and t !•> public will be invited to attend The eundiadte’s major and minor professors, together with another member of the Faculty, will give the examination i The new plan is patterned after (the one followed in the Herman uni versities. except that the Herman j universities adopt a more formal mode of examination. The candi i date appears before the examining ) hoard in full dress attire and amid very formal ceremonies The exatn i illations at Oregon, however, will not | hi* carried to this extent.

FACULTY DIVIDED AS TO REFERENDUM OUTCOME Women’s Votes Counted on to Affect Change From Show ing of 1812 Opinion, both optimistic and pes> simistie, concerning the results of the coming election, were expressed j this morping by several of the Uni- ! versity faculty women. “Present indications seem favora- j ble to us,” said Mrs. Ellen Pennell, j “During the last two or three weeks, j there seems to have been a change in ! our favor, in the political horizon, j And I shall be quite surprised,” she j continued,” if the women’s votes So not show a majority in favor of the appropriation.” Miss Burgess spoke of the impor tance of the women voting at this election, “ft is particularly impor tant," she said, “that the women show by this election, their interest in public affairs, and their influence in attempting to set things right, because the results of the election are being awaited all over the Unit ed States, and will be used as an ar gument either for or against suf frage.” Dr. Bertha Stewart appeared less enthusiastic. “We shall just have ;o wait utnil election and see,” she said. And according to Mrs. Mabel Par sons, it is never wise to be too sure. Optimism isn’t the safest policy,” .-,he said, “because it influences peo ple sometimes to desist from further I effort.” LAUREAN SOCIETY MEETS l*rograni of Literary Society Devoted to Tennyson The program of the Laurean So- i iety tonight will consist of a dis-, aission of Alfred Lord Tennyson. | Luton Ackerson will give a criti-! cal outline of Tennyson's work, Man- j lei Weiss will give a short biogra phy of the life of the great poet,; and Lloyd Dawson will give readings; from Tennyson's works.
