Increase Due to Improvements and
Additions to the Equipment •
of the University
When the registration book closed
tonight, a total of 690 students had
registered in the University. This
makes an increase of 53 over the 637
mark which was reached Friday night.
I Compared with the registration at
the corresponding time last year, the
present registration denotes an in
crease of approximately 13%.
Registrar Tiffany, who has observed
the registraton for several years, says
that he expects at least 800 to be en
rolled before another week has passed.
He says that next Monday will un
doubtedly add many more names to
the registration lists.
The registration this year has ex
ceeded our greatest expectations.
With the withdrawal of the two
schools of engineering, we did not ex
pect the registration to show any
such increase as it has shown.
“I do not think there is any ques
tion but that the registration will
reach 800, and t may possibly go over
that point.
“If indications prove true, there
I should be 75 or 100 new students reg
ister at the beginning of the second
semester. This would bring the total
number of students for the year to
800 or 900.
“The large increase is due, I be
lieve, to the^ building activities of the
University now going on.
“Much difficulty is now being expe.
rienced in finding sufficient class room
accommodations. In one class there
are five more students than the num
ber of char^ that can be crowded into
the room.”

George M. Cole, Washington Rancher-,
Desires to Continue Pursuit of
Knowledge at Oregon
Almost three scores of years have
not proven insurmountable obstacles
to the ambitions of George M. Cole,
rged 58, of Husum, Klickitat County,
I Washington, who has registered in
! the department of English as a spe
cial student.
Although registered in the depart
ment of English, Cole’s real purpose
in coming to the University was to
take courses in the department of
Journalism, in order to fit himself for
the journalistic field, which he ex
pects to enter on completing his col
lege career.
The manner in which Cole became
interested in journalism is interesting.
A yeai; ago he turned the manage
ment of a farm over to his three sons
and daughter and entered the Ore
gon Normal School at Monmouth.
Last winter he was detailed to “cover”
a certain convention for a newspaper.
He wrote the story and sent it to the
newspaper for publication. Shortly
after his story was returned to him
with instructions to rewrite it. This
incident made him determine in tak
ing work in the University depart
ment of Journalism.
Cole was born August 10, 185G,

Dr. Cloran Meets Waterloo in Pro
nouncing Name of English
Dl\ Timothy Cloran, Professor of
Romance Languages in the Universi
ty, and official jester of the faculty,
is an authority on the pronunciation
of French, but he struck a name the
other day in his first year class which
overtaxed his powers as a linguist.
The owner of the moniker was none
other than “Tony” Jaureguy, the
financial chauffeur of the Emerald.
When Dr. Cloran reached Jaure
guy’s name on his roll he hesitated.
“This must be a mistake,” said the
Doctor. “How do you spell it?”
“J-A-U-R^E-G-U-Y,” vouchsafed
the Emerald manager.
“How do you pronounce it?” was
the next query.
“Tony” pronounced it.
“What language, may I ask, does
your name come from, Mr. Jaure
Dr. Cloran coughed and hurriedly
assigned the conjugation of a verb
to one of his students.
Tryouts Will Be Wednesday From 3
to 6. Tours Are
The Women’s Glee Club held its first
business meeting at 5 o’clock Mon
day, in Professor Straub’s room. There
are vacancies for only ten girls, and
the tryouts will be Wednesday after
noon from three to six in Mr. Ly
man’s studio. It is urgent that all
girls wishing positions attend.
Mr. Lyman has been working hard
all summer on the fllans for this
year. He says he is very much
pleased with the prospects, as they
are better than ever. The club will
start preparations now for its annual
concert, to be given probably during
Christmas vacation, and plans are also
being made for an extended trip
through Oregon, to be taken at the
same time.
After Christmas preparations will
begin for the comic opera to be given
by the combined men’s and women’s
clubs Junior Week-End.
During the year one practice hour
a week will be held with the men’s
club, to work up numbers which are
to be sung at the college vesper ser
vices. Mr. Lyman emphasized the fact
that the music for these occasions
would be exceptionally good.
Frederic Stanley Dunn, Professor
of Latin at the University of Oregon,
Eugene, will deliver the first lecture

Three-Ton Squad Works Out Under Stringent Training Rules: Early
to Bed and No Pipe-Dreams—Hesitation and Tango Taboo—
Hayward Prepares to Do the Sherlock Holmes Stunt After Dark
—“Bez” Out For Big Game This Season.
By “String.”
At practice Monday night Coach
Bezdek got back to his old-time form.
It sure seemed natural to hear him
call out to the lagging Freshmen to
“get a move on” There were so many
of the boys late that the coach took
up a great part of the afternoon in
telling them their shortcomings. He
let Tuttle get in his deadly work with
the camera, and that bunch of hus
kies, some thirty-four in number,
weighed in > the neighborhood of three
tons as they lined up before the cam
era—fifty-four forty to be approxi
mate. Isn’t it strange how figures
will pile up to suggest sinister mean
ings? To the average reader, on
glancing over this little article, it will
appear that he or she, as the case
might be, will recognize something
familiar about those figures. Of
course! You hit it the first time. It
brings back to your active mind the
scenes of civil war times. Don’t you
remember? Fifty-four forty was the
line that meant fight in those days,
and it is sure to mean that same
thing here now. Then it was fifty
four forty or fight, but now it is 54:40
and fight.
The coach talked about the neces
sity of good hard work on the part
of everyone, as he has a green team
and it will take good hard work to
whip them into shape even if they all
do ther part. What is more, he
clamped the training lid down with
a bang, and Bill Hayward was there
to hear all about it. It is ten o’clock
from now on for the boys- and all of
the good old whiffs at the joy-smoke
will be put in the discard. What is
more, when the boys feel the inclina
tion to show all of their class in the
line of Tango and Hesitation learned
in the home town at the nominal rate
of foyr-fifty a lesson they had better
put on the non-skids and be sure that
they are using asbestos in the huDs
for fear that Bill may be in the crowd.
Bill is some on the gum-shoe, and he
generally pipes all of that stuff when
he is within four miles of it. Remem
ber Eugene is a small town and he
lives about in the center of it, so you
will haveto go beyond the little DRY
town down the valley.
From now on it is nothing but the
hard routine of work of sibnal prac
tice, aiming to develop team work and
speed. The coach has a bunch of new
plays in his head that he doped out
while watching carefully over some
of the bunch that he has sent back
to be made into Porates.
Special Advertising Courses are Of
fered—Allen Pleased With
Dr. Conklin’s course in the Psychol
ogy of Advertising is also in connec
tion with the Journalism, courses. El
ementary Phychology is a prerequi
site to this course, therefore the class
is almost entirely composed of up
perclassmen. Next semester, a course
in the Practice of Advertising will be
given under the auspices of the Port
land Ad Club. A committee composed
of Marshal N. Dana, R. D. Carpen
ter and Merrill E. Reed, of Portland,
will consult with Preseident Camp
bell an dthe professors of Journalism
to select special professors for cours
es dealing with the advertising and
the commercial side of the newspa
The number of students takng Jour
nalism in one or another of its phas
es, is about one hundred.
The proposed School of Journalism,
which was to have been established
this fall at Western Reserve Univer
sity, Cleveland, Ohio, will not mate
rialize, because Dan R. Hanna, owner
of the Leader and the News, has
withtdran his promised support of
$10,000 a year for this school.
Mr. Hanna gives as his reason for
the withdrawal of his promise to
President Thiving, of Western Re
serve, that the University did not talk
over the staff appointments with
him, although an agreement to that
effect had been made when his offer
was made.

Fourteen Veterans Return and Ex

Show Class
By Harry Kuck.
Candidates for the University asso
ciation football (soccer) team are
called to their first practice Thursday
afternoon at 4 o’clock, on the base
ball field. The team will practice
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4 as long
as the gymnasium classes continue to
use the field for outside work. There
after practice will probably be Mon
day, Wednesday and Friday.
Soccer was established as a Uni
versity sport last year. The first squad
to represent the University in this
game met Columbia University twice,
and was able to hold the Portland in
terscholastic champions to a tie each
time. Since then soccer has grown in
popularity about the campus.
Of that squad all the men are back,
without exception. In addition, the
scores of Freshmen who will turn out
for gymnasium work and who, as long
as the baseball field is used will work
at soccer as an exercise, will be
watched for likely material. Three
or four of them who have played soc
cer in Portland are likely to join
the squad at once. Crockett, a fourth
year man who can make good in
rather fast company, is here and is
expected to turn out. Vosper, a

Cork Floor on Second Story Will
Re Innovation-Skylight
The new $100,000 Administration
building for the University of Oregon,
upon which work will begin in ear
nest the 28th of September, is one of
unique design and modern equipment,
according to those who have seen the
The structure, 76x105 feet, located
between the Presdient’s cottage and
Kincaid Field, will consist of two sto
ries and a basement. The first floor
will contain a lecture hall large
enough to accommodate over 800 peo
ple. It will resemble a small theatre,
having a full sized stage, 22x23 feet,
and an orchestra pit. The room will
be used for debates, class meetings,
lectures, and for the staging of vari- ■
ous play®, produced from time to time
by Professor Reddle. The University
Museum and the offices of several of
the Deans will also be maintained on
this floor.
The second floor will be for the U3e
of the administrative offices. A lobby
50 feet square comprises the center
of this story, with the administrative
office facing it. In the west end will
be the President’s private office, sten
ographers’ and Registrar’s private of
fice. On the north side will be the
Registrar’s work room. This room
will have seventeen wickets for the
convenience of the students. In the
east end are the business offices, hav
ing in connection with them a large
steel vault, in which all the records
of the University will be kept The
south end of the building will be par
titioned off into a multigraphing
room, telephone booths and a Univer
sity postoffice. Ample light will be
supplied for the entire building by a
large skylight.
I he basement will be provided with
four class rooms, the disposition of
which has not been made, several
large store rooms, lavatories, etc.
The entire second story will be laid
with a cork floor, the first on the Uni,
versity grounds.
The building is also to be equipped
with a complete system of vacuum
cleaners, all of which are of the most
modern type. A book lift, resembling
a small elevator and large enough
to carry a man, will be used to con
vey miscellaneous material from the
Steward Johnson yesterday re
marked that no detail has been spared
to make our new Administration
building one of the best of its type on
the coast, and one of which we may
be justly proud.
