r. W. C. A. MAKES $15
SIris Sell Peanuts, Candy and Rooters’
Caps at Game Saturday.,
The Y W. C. A. made $15 on their
combined sale of peanuts and chrysan
themums at the game Saturday. More
orders were given for “mums” than tUb
girls could fill. Ruth Wilson, treasurer
of the x. W. C. A., had charge of the
Three booths and a peanut wagon sup
erintended by Echo Zahl handled the
sale of peanuts, Hershey’s, crewing gum,
pop corn, rooters caps and penants to the
excited mob. The right to sell these
things on the campus was shared with
the Y. W. C. A. by the Co-op and the
money taken in is to be divided. “The
sale wasn’t as good this time as it was
for the Multnomah game,” said M. F.
McClain, manager of the Co-op. “The
crowd was too cold, wet, and excited to
The sale of rooters caps was small
also, because, according to Mr. McClain,
the freshman fellows couldn’t be per
suaded that they were allowed to take
off their green caps and substitute a
rooters cap.
Orders for the “mums” were taken,
from the woman’s fraternities before the
day and were delivered on Saturday
morning by a committee of five freshmen

Some profs are so diabolical in their
desire to send in cuts that, as the regis
trar’s records show, some students have
been marked absent for non-existent
classes on Sunday and even have received
holiday cuts as Christmas presents.
Harold Hamstreet, working in the
registrar’s office, got the dope on the
faculty when he looked up his own “cut”
record and found that his prof insisted
that he was absent jn days when school
didn’t keep. So the ed-in-chf. investi
gated the cards of ether students and
was startled to see that they too had
this same deal “slipped over” on them
by their instructors.
One possible explanation for the Sun
day cuts is that Prof. X is also a Sun
day school teacher and among those in
his class are “Brick” Mitchell, “Tilly”
Tallman, “Slim” Crandall, and Dick Nel
son. The prof notices that these boys
are absent from their pew and lo!, he
turns in a cut for them.
Y. W. C. A. Will Have Fellowship Week
From November 12 to 19.
Membership in the Y. W. C. A. has
reached about 140 and 40 of that num
ber have joined within the past month. A
new plan is on foot to get more mem
bers. A committee of twelve has been
appointed by Mary Hislop, chairman of
membership committee, and the entire
enrollment of girls in the University not
in the Y. W. C. A. has been divided
among the twelve.
Since indoor gymnasium work has
started, interest in Y. W. C. A. has in
creased according to Miss Hislop.
At a cabinet meeting held Monday
night plans were discussed for fellow
ship week which is to be from November
12 to 19. During the week the in
terest and prayers of members and
friends of the Y. W. C. A. are invited
to the subject of the growth of a world
fellowship, and each day a different na
tion will be taken up. The meetings will
be held every day at 12:30 in the Bung
alow. Program and leaders will be
announced later.
Will Entertain at Dinner With Miss Fox
Friday Evening.
The Bachelor Maids’ club will meet
with Miss Elizabeth Fox, dean of women,
at her apartments in Bartle Court Fri
day at six o’clock. Each girl will bring
a contribution to the dinner.
This club has not been definitely or
ganized. Plans are under way to or
ganize a club to which both men and
women are eligible. Students who are
batching and wish to join are requested
to meet with President Campell Wed
nesday at seven. The advisability of co
operation in buying food will be discuss
Those who will meet with Miss Fox
bn Friday evening are: Emily Spulak,
Carrie Stevens, Helen Case, Helen Dull,
Gladys Harbke, Ethel Murray, Essie and
Jennie Magurie and Hazel Badabaugh.
Mrs. Karl Onthank will be the guest of
honor. Miss Fox said she would be glad
to know of any girl who would care to
join the club.
“Ye members of the German club, have
your German jokes ready for the meeting
Wednesday night, otherwise you will
have forfeits to pay,” says Professor
Herman Schwarz.
Besides the forfeit games, Iva Wood
will sing several German songs and Pro
fessor Schwarz will explain the German
student life.
Rehearsals of “Der Meisterschaff,” the
German play which the club is to pre
»ent, have begun but the date of presenta
tion is not yet announced.
All German students are invited to join
the club.
Experiments registering and testing
the strength of the majors in the de
partment of physical training are being
given this month. The records are be
ing kept, and another examination will
be given at the completion of their work
as majors. The result of their work, in
the department will be made public. >
Washington brought four-hundred students,
four-hundred miles to see a nothing to nothing
game. Next Saturday we play W. S. C. at Portland.
If Washington can take four hundred students four
hundred miles how many students can old Oregon
take one hundred? Specials on both railroads. Plan
to go!

Leading Roles Taken by Laura

Martha Beer.
Rehearsals for “Strongheart,” the next
Guild i’layers production which is to be
given at Guild hall on Friday and Sat
urday evenings, are now the order of the
day in the dramatic! interpretation de
The play promises to be interesting
in many respects. Many students who
have oever appeal#"?! before in campus
productions have been showing up ex
ceptionally well in rehearsals, according
to Doctor Bates, director.
Siegfried, the dog with the musical
voice, is one of the principal attractions
of the first act and the various frater
nity houses are being diligently search
ed for a dog who will have the proper
College songs appear throughout the
play. The following is a sample of one
of the outbursts in the first act:
In heaven above
Where all is love,
The faculty won't be there.
But down below
Where all is woe,
The faculty will be there.
Doctor Bates expresses himself as
being very much pleased with the work
of Earl Fleischmann as “Strongheart,”
the title role. He already knows hi*
part and is working out his conception
of the character of the Indian. Fleisch
mann is playing it sincerely, and though
one never forgets that he is an Indian,
yet one also remembers that he’ is an
educated and a civilized one.
The leading comedy role is being taken
by Ernest Watkins. Watkins takes the
part of Billy, Strongheart’s chum, who
stands by him when all the rest of the

Original Funds Not Sufficient to
Carry Out Plans to
Build Roof.
Pediment Built to Take Roof if
Money Can Be Raised
Later in Year.
So much criticism has been heard on
the campus about the false front, or
pediment, of the new Education build
ing that Karl W. Onthnhk, secretary
to President P. L. Campbell, desires to
advance a word of defense. The build
ing as originally planned by Ellis F.
Lawrence, dean of the school of archi
tecture, provided for a hip roof which
would extend the entire length of the
When work had begun on the building
it. was found that the funds on hand
were not sufficient to cover the ex
pense of constructing a hip roof, so the
pediment was built with the idea of ad
ding the hip roof later when more money
is available, and when more space is
needed, for such an addition will add
several more rooms.
The Education building is costing $50,
000 complete. The building alone, with
out fixtures or heating plant represents
an expenditure of $30,000. The heat
ing plajjit. including the tunnel dug from
Friendly hall last summer to carry the
pipes V> the building cost $10,000, and
the fixtures cost $10,000. Some o£
these are very elaborate, especially those
of the law library on the third floor.
Complaints have been heard that the
Education building looks unfinished and
out of place facing east. Evidently the
plan for a “Greater Oregon” has not
been heard of by these people.
Au avenue will be built within a few
years,” said Mr. Onthank, “connecting
Eleventh avenue and the southern bound
ary of the campus at the cemetery. The
athletic field will then be moved to the
lot used at present for golf links.”
Two rows of buildings will be placed

Tunnels Run Under Campus;
Steam Pipes Lie ’Neath Sod
Boom! Crash! Roar! Intensely black,
hot, darkness was all that could be sen
sed. Two bewildered freshman girls
screamed sharply at the^sudden noise and
lack of lights. They were in the tun
nel which runs underground from Com
merce hall to Friendly hall and anything
unusual was startling. Had the end of
the world come and were they waiting
on the banks of the river Styx for
Charon’s next trip? The darkness and
heat resembled their ideas of the infer
nul regions, but how could such a catas
trophe happen? That rumbling echo
might be chaos flying around in space,
the remnants of a once happy world.
Not so. They were not on their way
to eternity, for the lights flashed on
again and everything was unchanged; the
same narrow tunnel with its four con
crete walls, dim lights and its omnipres
ent heat. The girls were being conduct
ed through the tunnel and their guide
had gone ahead, switched off the lights
and let the iron door fall into place.
One thing on the campus that is not
known to many students, even the sen
iors, is this tunnel which carries the main
pipe of the heating systtm, from which
branch it is lined with concrete and is
about five feet wide by seven high. The
pipe in it makes it extremely hot when
the heat is turned on. Old students
have probably noticed the groups of
robins gathered around the man-holes
warming their feet and eating crumbs
put there by the junitors during the cold
spells in the winter.
A new tunnel, comparatively small,
! however, was dug last summer to carry
I the steam pipes of the Education build
ing. Some persons have expressed their
j fear that the new building would tnx
i the heating system of the University, re
sulting in cold buildings all over the cam
1 pus, but H. M. Fisher, superintendent of
! the grounds, states that all such fears
should be laid aside, as a certain amount
| of pressure is necessary to get the steam
; to the buildings, so it would not be pos
| sible for a small quantity to get around
, Mr. Fisher says that there is plenty
I of steam and all the heating facilities
are in good working order. The rest of
the system cannot he affected by trouble
. in the Education building or unywhere
else. o

Disappeared--In the men's gymnas
ium, Saturday, November 4, between the
short hours of 11 a. m. to 1:80 p. m.:
4700 sandwiches, 45 gallons of salad, 22*5
pounds of meat, 45 gallons of beans, 17
gallons of pickles, 45 gallons of ice
cream, 10 gallons of cream, and IS
pounds of coffee. No reward is offered.
The amount was fed to 1500 alumni,
students, guests, freshmen and Washing
tonians on Homecoming Day.
Walking down the sawdust aisles,
roped off to confine the crowds, was
exactly like seeing a stock show or go
iug through the food aisle of a varied in
dustries building tor a tree lunch. Meat
cut in great slices was piled high and
banked by a few hundred sandwiches.
The flipping of great spoonfuls of salad
from pan to plate became a habit with
the co-eds, and 'many were noticed ab
sent-mindedly engaging in the same ex
ercise Saturday night. Drays and jitneys
spent most of Saturday morning hauling
The room which, at student body
dances, is the haunt of slippers and
powder puffs, resembled the city dump
heap, where panting frosh earned their
eats. The long tables, most often found
covered with evening coats and furs,
were buried under a pile of meat bones
that, would have done credit to a bone
Drama Students Produce Scenes Twice
a Week; Productions Continued.
A new feature of Dr. E. S. Bates'
class in dramatic interpretation this
semester is the staging of various scenes
from the plays which are bejnn studied
These scenes are produced twice a week
at the regular class meetings in Onilr
hall. Two hours are given to each play
allowing a new production for each week
The roles are enacted by the member?
of the class, without special costumes
and using very little scenery nnd stagr
effects. By this arrangement more op
portunity is given for the actual inter
pretation of the plays and a greater
knowledge of the various authors'
“The Tyranny of Tears," “Importance
of Being Ernest,” and “Herod” have al
ready been given, with “The Great
Divide,” “The Witching Hour," and many
other recent successes of late years to
follow. It is the intention of Dr. Bates
to continue these class-hour plays
throughout the entire course in addition
to the regular plays produced monthly by
his pupils.

Bezdek to Use New Plays In

on Saturday.
Pullman Players Are Anxious to
Repeat Last Year’s 28-3
William Haaeltinc
Not one whit discouraged over Satur
day's scoreless contest, the varsity be
gan active preparation to meet Dietz’s
reorganized machine yesterday nfter-.
noon. The result of the Washington
game was disappointing to players and
rooters alike. With the condition of
Kincaid field, however, little else was
possible and the true merits of the op
posing elevens were buried in the mud.
The strong offense of the lemon-yellow
had small chance to get started in the
insecure footing that the gridiron afford
ed, while the Washington backs were
also handicapped. But if our offense
was lacking the defense showed surpris
ing strength, time and again hurling
back Noble and liainsworth for losses.
When the goal was endangered the Ore
gon line was impregnable.
The punting on both sides was re
markable considering the slippery hall
and the amount of punting that was
, done. Johnny Beckett did yeoman work
in keeping the leather away from the
goal line and outpunted Morrison three
yurdji to the kick.
The two penalties inflicted on the
varsity at the beginning of the contest
undoubtedly had a lot to do with Ore
gon's late start, for otherwise Bezdek’s
men would have had the ball in the mid
dle of the field instead of on their 20
yurd line. Both teams fumbled practi
cally the same number of times. Wash
ington’s fumbles were of little conse
quence; Oregon’s came at the most criti
cal moments.
On a dry field there Is no telling
what would have happened but it is safe
to say there would have been some scor
ing. Washington has a good team al
though not up to the standard of prev
ious years and ought to make mince-meat
out of the Californians.
The attention of everybody is now
directed to the game with Washington
State next Saturday on Multnomah field
in Portland. The more one considers
the big, veteran team thnt Coach Diets
has, the more one is inclined to be
lieve that the struggle on November 11,
will be the hardest game on the varsity’s
schedule. Nobody has forgotten the 2S
3 walloping of last year, the worst de
feat an Oregon team has received in
many seasons.
Almost the snme identical men that
participated in that contest are back in
college and anxious to duplicate the feat.
Oregon realizes this and anticipates a
hard-fought battle. Coach Bezdek was
not forced, or rather did not have the
chance, to spring any new plays on
Washington und so can use them against
Coach Dietz was an interested spec
tator Saturday and like a true football
coach predicted defeat for his men
when they met the locals.
Last night the squad practiced on the
basehull diamond as Kincaid field was a
quagmire. The session consisted of lim
bering up and running signals.
All of the players caiue through the
game without injuries and not one sub
1 i-tit tit ion was made throughout the en
tire game.
Heads of Women’s Fraternities to Dis
cuss Fire Escapes.
The proposed meeting of the heads
of the women’s fraternities has been
called by Miss Fox, dean of women, for
three o’clock on Wednesday. The mat
ter of fire escapes, and other points of
personal interest to the girls will be dis
cussed. Miss Fox wishes the girls to
be prompt so that many points will bo
fully discussed during the hour.
