WAKING UP DRAMATICS.
Prom the senior class comes the
Information that a chorus may be
used In conjunction with the annual
clasB play. This new departure from
the established order of things has
not as yet been absolutely determin
ed on, but sentiment in the senior
class Is strongly in favor of the pro
posed change and there Is every like
lihood of its being effected.
From the strict academic view
point, this may seem too radical an
Innovation, but as a matter of fact
it only demonstrates the willingness
on the part of the-Oregon students
to get out of the rut when by so do
ing they can Infuse a little real life
into any of the student or class ac
tivities. The same spirit has recent
ly been shown by the action taken by
the meu’s fraternities on the campus
in forming a council in order that
they might be governed by uniform
rules and with the wish that any
friction resulting from the fraternity
Bystem might be eliminated.
For years, the senior play has
been a tradition at the University of
Oregon. Every class has felt in duty
bound to give one. and nearly every
class has gone in the hole financially
as the result of its histrionic endeav
ors. The plays were good, but some
how they were not just what the peo
ple wanted. Even a large number of
the University students balked nt
The introduction of a chorus, if
made by the class of 1914 will not be
a lowering of the standards of col
lege dramatics, as might be supposed
by some, but will only bring about a
greater variety, resulting in a suc
cessful appeal to a larger proportion
of the students of the University and
to the other patrons of University
The senior piny has needed liven

The new student 0council has
started filings off with a rush and
from all indications has more thaa
enough business to keep it busy for
the remainder of the school year.
There is no doubt that there are
plenty of things on the Oregon cam
pus which can be remedied by a lit
tle serious thought and action, but
the council in itself can not be ex
pected to accomplish all the needed
changes. Now it is up to the Oregon
students to get
