"The swimming tank will be com
pleted and ready for splashing with
in thirty days.’’ This was the state
ment of W. E. Fields, the contractor
yesterday afternoon. “The tank by
contract was to have been completed
by November 1, but delays in the
arrival of material have lengthened
the time The only thing which is
delaying us now is the scum gutter
which is being manufactured in Se
The tank whteh has a capacity of
100,000 gallons, is 60x30 feet. The
stairs and ladder leading into it, will
not project directly into the main
inclosure, as allowance has been
made for them. This is a similar
feature to the Multnomah club tank
“It is the plan to change the wat
er in the tank at least once a week,”
said Professor C. A. McClain, the de
signer of the tank. “Solutions of
hypo-chloride will be used as a dis
infectant. While the tank is in use,
a constant flow of fresh water will
maintain the circulation, the overflow
being cared for by the scum gutter.
The tank will be lighted by inclosed
electric lights from the side, this
being a new feature in lighting.
Jewell Pressure Filters, one in the
Men's gymnasium, and one in the
women’s gymnasium, will remove I lie
impurities from the Mill Race water
which will be used. The water will
be heated by 1 200 feet of brass coll
located in boilers in' the men’s gym
Many have remarked that the
completion of the tank lias been rath
er tardy since it was begun in the
latter part of August. W. E. Fields,
contractor, stated in regard to this,
"I was instructed in the beginning
to make the construction just as
durable as possible. Six and a halt
tons of steel have been used to re
inforce the concrete, and the walls,
sixteen inches thick, are waterproof
ed with the highest grade of asphalt,
costing fifty dollars a ton. When
finished the tank will cost nearly
TOR FOOTBALL GOOD
Deficit in Saturday’s Game Will
Be Covered by Later
"Despite tiit' fact that the gate
receipts do not offset the expenses
of the Oregon-Idaho game, played
here last Saturday, and the report
shows a deficit, 1 am very well sat
isfied with the outlook." is the state
ment of Graduate-manager Dean
Walker made yesterday.
"Considering the fact that the
game was an early season game and
that there was no special attraction
outside of local interest to draw a
crowd, I have no complaint to make.
The showing made by our team,
though it was crippled, was one that
will make the attendance at the lat
er games ail the larger. The games
at Albany and Cortland will pull
much larger crowds than ever be
fore i think, and the fact that neith
er our team or Washington's has
been beaten will only add to the in
terest that will be taken,"

In the past seven years Henry Miller lias appeared continuously and
In that long period he has played but four roles. Hut these roles form a
gallery of contrasting types and botause of the actor-manager’s success in
them lie has played nearly three seasons each in two of them and two sea
sons in the others. The characters cerated by the notable actor range
from the serious role of Stephen Ghent" in “The Great Divide," to the
ippealing “Neil Sumner" In "The Rainbow." "Stephen Ghent" was a man
>f the crude West, vital with life and hiding beneath the rough exterior of
t prospector the heart of a man. "Neil Sumner" is a man of worldly pol
sh, a bit cynical from loveliness, a seeker for amusement among tHe fast
ad. a man of sentiment. Both the rough miner of "The Great Divide." and
lie polished man of the world in "The Rainbow" are redeemed by love, the
irst by a wife, the last by the love of a winsome daughter. Mr. Miller will
.h' seen in his newest role at the Kugone theatre on Oetobr 30. Many he
lve it the best part he has played in recent years.

Missionary From China Gives
Talk Before Meeting
Mrs. McClint’ock, a missionary
from Hainon, China, addressed the
women of the Y. W. C. A. Monday
afternoon in the Bungalow. Mrs.
McClintock has been in the United
States since June on a furlough, but
she will return the first of Novem
ber to China, where she has been a j
missionary for 21 years. She has j
learned to read and speak two of '
the Chinese dialects.
“The Chinese are not satisfied
with their religion,’’ said Mrs. Mc
Clintock. “Confucianism is the best
of their religions. It teaches, rever
ence of ancestors, which has been the
cause of the long history of China.
But the killing of innocent children j
and the position of women are the
product of Confucianism. Do they
still kill little children? Yes. Many
of them! Are the women slaves?
Yes. • Do they have rights? No!
Confucianism gives no rights to wo
men and many of them kill them
selves just to be rid of the too bur
Mrs. McClintock then gave an il
lustration of a Chinese girl who had
struggled to get an education. Few
girls there are allowed an education
and this one was an exception. She
finally was allowed to attend Mrs.
McClintock’s school and two years
ago graduated from a large medical
school. Now she holds a good posi
