Twenty-Two Veterans Return
to School; Ten Freshmen
First Practice Held Tuesday.
Future Ones Will Be Held on
Monday and Thursday.
“One, two, three, play!”
At four o’clock, Thursday afternoon,
20 band men soft of lip but enthusiastic,
gath/red in Villard hnll for the first
band practice of the year. Mr. Albert
Perfect, director, led the players through
two rapid fire marches, smiled, and gave
out just this comment. “The prospects
are the best ever. Oregon will have a
real band this year.”
Thirty three musicians lined up for
the official l*gnd picture at the end of
the season last spring. Twenty-two of
that number have returned and will again
lend their efforts. More than 10 fresh
men have already visited Mr. Perfect.
That is why he is so optimistic.
“They play%d ns well at the first prac
tice this year as at the last performance
last year,” he explained, “and when all
come out to rehearsals regularly we can
expect a successful organization.”
The clarinet section, oue which is
usually weak in amateur bands, promises
to be especially good, with Butler, Pot
ter, Nelson and Conley back, and sev
eral new men trying out. Three saxo
phones, too, are a certainty, and will
make possible a variation in quartet,
sextette, and solo work.
Maurice Hyde who holds down chair
number one in the first cornet section,
and Walter Grebe, mainstay with the
slide trombone, will again bear the brunt
of the solo work.
The alto section will be strengthened
and a french-horn added.
Thirty members iti to be the maximum
for concert work, and these will make up
the “first band." When more volume is
needed and quality is not the essential
less able players will also be used. Mr.
Perfect urges every student who has an
instrument, to join, in order that the
best showing possible can be made in
marches and drills. At the football games
every available instrument will be needed
Practice, from now on, will be held
in Villard hall, on Monday and Thursday
afternoons front four to six o’clock. One
hour each week will be given over to
drilling and playing “on the march.”
All prospective players have been ask
ed to call on Mr. Perfect in the school
of music or during the regular practice
hours iu Villard hall.
BUILDING READY OCT. 8
Educational Building Is First Step To
wards a "Greater University."
According: to Supervisor of Construc
tion E. E. McNeil, Oregon's new educa
tion building will be completed and ready
for acceptance by the board of regents
about October 10. Furniture is now be
ing installed on the first floor and that
part of the building will be ready for
the University's newly established Jun
ior high school next Monday. Or. Sheldon
has not decided whether the school will
be moved on this date o"r not on ac
count of the possibility that the building
might be too damp.
The education building is the first step
in the policy of the board of regents for
a “Greater University.” It is the first
i unit of a scries of planned structures
j which will materially change the appear
! ance of the campus. Two other buildings
are planned, one of which is to be built
just across 11th street from the new
structure on the present football field.
The building now being completed is on
the old Oregon baseball and soccer field.
Plans for the building were drawn by
the firm of Lawrence and Ilolford of
Portland. It is of the byzantine style
of architecture, three storiea high and
built of red faced brick and terra cotta.
The cost will be $40,000 and an addi
tional $8,000 for furniture.
Although the Junior high school may
be moved into the quarters planned for
it, on the first floor, next Monday, the
schools of education and law, the teach
ers’ library and the extension department
will not move into their new quarters
until the building is entirely finished and
accepted by the building committee of
the board of regents.

“With regard to soccer football, I j

the various groups of men, and in a 1
few days I will write what success we
have had for making up an intercollegiate

Coach Dyment having received the !
foregoing letter from A. I). Browne, j
the new director of the department of
physical education of O. A. C., and
having written to Multnomah in regard
to games, it would seem that many
would turn out with this promise of trips
But only 17 men turned out on the
field yesterday afternoon, and only four
of these last year’s varsity players—
Campbell, Sheehy, Fox and Hartley.
Kennon and Hazeltine will probably turn
out when glee club tryouts are over, and
Bathbun and Ralston have not reported
as yet. A hole will be left in the
team through the loss of Spellman and
Tuerek to football and Pearson, who is
in the east.
Soccer has so far been very ragged
and there is not yet the material or
proficiency of past years. Only a few
of those turning out are well equipped;
the others wear everything from tennis
and basketball shoes to dress oxfords.
No team is in sight yet of the class that
would he needed to compete with O. A.
or Multnomah, and the cry of the
coach is for more material from which
A captain will bo chosen probably
within a week. The field was cleared,
marked out and made finally ready for
play this afternoon.
Credit Given for Retail Work
by School of Commerce
Prof. McAuslan Will Give Short
Courses in Salesmanship
in Oregon Towns.
That the University of Oregon is the [
first school to offer retail work for Uni
versity credit, is the belief of 1). Walter!
Morton, dean of the school of commerce. !
1‘rofessor Morton has searched through
the catalogues of the many universities i
and has found no school of commerce
offering a similar course.
In addition to this new course the
extension work has continued and in
creased through the summer. The class
at the American Institute of Banking
convenes each Tuesday evening at the
offices of thi' company in Portland. Six
ty-five officers and employees of the
bank attended the find, class which was*
held last week. On October 1, a series
of lectures by Prof. Morton and Prof.
(1. Robert McAuslan. will begin with one
