Twenty-Two Veterans Return to School; Ten Freshmen Aspirants. First Practice Held Tuesday. Future Ones Will Be Held on Monday and Thursday. "Ready!" “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.

Field Made Ready for Play; Coach Dyment Urges Large Turnout. “With regard to soccer football, I j am now trying to stimulate interest in the various groups of men, and in a 1 few days I will write what success we have had for making up an intercollegiate team. I am heartily in favor of a re- j turn game with you and will do every- j thing possible to arrange such a schedule. | As soon as I know definitely I will write.” 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 and games. 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 to choose. 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!

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 itt tlu> Credit Association of Portland. Prof. Morton states that there is a pos sibility of obtaining a Portland lawyer, who is making a specialty of collections, to lecture on the law envolved in the col lection business. The correspondence courses in the ex tension division which required consid erable time to compile, have been com plete!!. At present four subjects are of fered. Book-keeping review, general or ganization of business, salesmanship, prepared by Prof. Morton, and business correspondence, a course written by W. U. (1. Thacher, professor of rhetoric.
