Sophomores Making Final Plans
For First Hop of the
Following a recent action of the
Faculty requiring individual drink
ing cups at all social functions given
in the gymnasium, paraffin cups, en
closed in attractive nickel holders,
will be used at the Sophomore dance
in dispensing refreshments. Here
tofore, there has been much criti
cism over the matter and it is large
ly due to the efforts of Professor
Bovard that the sanitary cups were
purchased by the University.
The committee in charge of the
first‘formal dance of the year prom
ises many new and original features.
Much attention will be paid to the
condition of the floor.
oHendersljptt’s orchestra of eight
pieces has been engaged for the

The first preliminary debate try
out will be held Saturday morning,
November 22, at 9 o’clock, room 31,
in Deady Hall. The question will be,
Resolved, That the executive depart
ment should be made responsible for
the National Budget.” It is agreed
that the term “Responsible” within
the meaning of this Resolution shall
be interpreted as laying upon the
executive the duty of introducing the
Budget into congress, the right be
ing reserved to congress to amend
by reducing items only. About twen
ty-five men have signified their in
tention of trying out* and the contest
for places promises to be very close
and hard fought, for each man has
been studying hard on the question.
At this tryout a squad of ten men
will be picked which will later be
reduced to six or eight from which
number the two teams will finally be
•chosen. Each man will be gi^en five
minutes for constructive argument
and two minutes for rebuttal, Coach
Prescott urges .that °all contestants
be on hand Saturday .jnorning
promptly, for lots will be drawn .to
determine the order of speaking.

Introduced by S. H. Friendly by
her popular title, “the grand old
woman of Oregon,’’ Mrs. Abigail
Scott Duniway, of Portland, aged
leader of the woman suffragists in
Oregon, held the attention of the as
sembly for an hour yesterday morn
ing while she contrasted the educa
tional advantages of the present time
with those of a hair century ago.
Mrs. Duniway did not overlook
her favorite suhiect of women suf
frage and spoke of the long fight
that had been made in Oregon before
women were finally given the same
rights as men.
Interested in University,
“I am so glad to be here this
morning to speak to the boys and
girls of this great institution. I have
always taken a great interest in the
University of Oregon. One of my
sons was a student here at one time
and one of my best friends, Frances
Villard, is a daughter of the man
after whom this building is named.
Even as far back as the inception of
this University I had .the vision of a
great school of higher learning here
in Eugene and I hope that I may live
to see this institution rank among
the greatest in the United States.
“Educational advantages when I
received my education were not
what they are now. I was born in
Illinois and lived there for the first
seventeen years of my life. In those
days it was not thought necessary
for a woman to have any education,
but rather to spend her time in do
mestic duties. Consequently, my
education was sadly neglected, con
sisting only in what I could glean
from an old spelling book which I
Crossed Plains When 17.
“When I was seventeen years of
age, my father got the Oregon fever
and we crossed the plains by ox
teams to make a new home in the
great west. A year after our arrival
in Oregon, I secured a position of
teacher and commenced teaching. I
didnJt know anything but studied as
I, went along.* fn this way I obtained
my education. 0 IJowo different y are
the conditiofis which prevail today.
You°should be thankful for you°r
wonderful opportunities and not neg
lect to take advantage of them. e
Worked For Women. o
“1 am glad that I have been per
mitted to see the day when, after
forty years of labor, men and women
enjoy equal rights in this state.
Through advanced educational ideas
there has been a revolution of old
ideas and equal suffrage has been re
moved from the arena of ridicule and
crowned with success.
“Although Washington and Cali
fornia had women suffrage before
Oregon, yet I feel that this state has
been the pioneer of the movement on
the Pacific coast.
“During the last campaign 1 al
ways took occasion to boost for the
University appropriations whenever
possible. When the campaign for a
$3,000,000 endowment is successful
I will be satisfied.” ^

A week from today, if we can
leave the turkey long enough to go
out to Multnomah Held, we will see
an exhibition of football between the
University aitd the Multnomah Club
teams. We all know what kind of a
team the University has, but we do
not all know what the Multnomah
team is this year. The only way that
a line can be drawn is by comparing
scores, which is in itself unsatisfac
On the Multnomah team are a
number of Old Oregon players who
gained glory for themselves while
wearing the lemon-yellow. Then, too,
there are a number of men from the
eastern colleges who were stars in
their playing days. Multnomah has
beaten O. A. C. once and tied them
once this year. Scores do not count
for much as has been shown many
times, but this is the only way that
there is of comparing the strength
of the two teams. The Bremerton
Navy team which has a number of
good men on it, was beaten by Mult
nomah, although by not so large a
score as the Oregon team piled up
on them.
The varsity team has been out
practicing all of this week and al
though some of the men are not in
the best of condition, there will be
enough of the men in the game to
give a good account of themselves.
Beckett is still nursing his ankle
which he hurt in the Washington
game last Saturday. Cornell is still
lame and it is a little doubtful if he
will be up to his old time form. With
the exception of these two men the
team is in good condition and will
give Multnomah a run for their mon
ey Thanksgiving day.

Tlie University budget is $2293,
$1155 of which the “U.” team is en
deavoring to raise in Eugene. The
remaining $1138 is supposed to
come from the students, and friends

maintain their work.
The teams representing the two
Y. M.’s are working in conjunction
and will take lunch together at the

Method Will Enable Spectators
to Distinguish Men by
Use of Programs
The plan which was proposed some
time ago by a member ot' the Mult
nomah club that tho members of the
Oregon and Multnomah football
teams shall wear numbers on their
backs during the game is to be used
next. Saturday in Portland. Those
unfamiliar with the players when in
suits will be able to distinguish the
men and givg, tliffir applause whore

grandstand will be able to easily tell
what players are playing the premil-*

Multnomah field is acknowledged
the best in the Northwest and is sur
prisingly barren of mud, so that
where ordinarily the numbers would
not be legible in a few minutes after
the game had started if the game
was played any other place, it is
thought that the numbers will aid1
materially those in the grandstand at

As u result of the Women’s League
