The election of Burle Bramhall as
manager of the Emerald to succeed
George Colton, resigned; the election of
Frank Scaiefe yell leader to succeed
Jack Dolph who has left school; the
consideration of an amendment making
‘ the orchestra a student activiey, and
the investigation of the issuing of pro
grams for the Oregon-Washington game
were some of the features that filled the
program of the student council’s meet
ing last night.
“Upon two issues,” Nicholas Jaureguy,
president of the student council, explain
ed to that body at its meeting last
night, “depend the final settlement of
the problem raised by the soliciting of
advertising from the Eugene merchants
for the programs for the Oregon-Wash
ington game last Saturday. The first of
these is the promise given to the mer
chants in 1914, that from that date only
the Otegana and the Oregon Emerald
would be entitled to their support as
student body publications, and advertis
ing space in these two mediums would
0 be the only space sold with the endorse
ment of the student council.
‘‘The second issue arises from the
fact that at the last meeting of the coun
;il, October 25, a resolution was passed
stating that this case was not to be
an exception and that the consent of
the council could not be given to the pub
lishers. This was passed after the coun
cil had discussed what they considered
the facts of the case.”
The consideration of the question last
night began with a brief review of these
facts; the concession, according to Rus
sell Ralston, one of the publishers of
the program who was present at the
meeting, was originally given to William
Snyder by A. R. Tiffany. Snyder in
turn gave the rights to Ralston, James
Vance and Robert Atkinson and Ralston
and Vance were most active in the is
suing of the program. Before proceed
ing with the issuing of the programs,
Ralston asked Karl Becke, a member of
j the council, if he thought the consent
1 of the council could be gained. Becke
told Ralston that he thought the council
could not object, provided the merchants
were warned that this was not a stu
dent body enterprise and the plan of the
publishers to print on each page a state
ment to this effect was carried out. The
merchants were each advised according
to Ralston but the printing of the state
ment on each page of the program was
The objection to the soliciting of ad
vertising space from the merchants lies
in the fact that only a certain amount of
money is set aside for advertising each
year by the business men and according
to an estimate submitted to the coun
cil the loss to the Emerald through ad
vertising which will now be denied the
student paper on account of having been
given to the program, will amount to

GERMAN CLUB FROLICS

JOKES OR FORFEITS,WHICH?
# ■ # * *
The telling of German jokes and the
1 redeeming of the forfeits which were
paid as a penalty for not coining forth
with a joke, caused a great deal of mer
riment’ at the meeting of the German
Club at the Y. W. C. A. Bungalow last
night. The means of regaining the for
feits differed all the way from a German
political speech for Hughes to a declara
tion of love in German.
The latest thing the club is planning to
stage is a student body dance to be given
by the club at the men’s gymnasium No

game. The plans cannot be made defin

MANY BETS WILL BE PAID
Wagers Take Form of Mill Ra:e Parties,
Banquets and Candy.
Bets varying from a banquet to a
millrace party featured the election on
the campus. Several of the fraternity
houses staged bets between their Hughes
men and their Wilson supporters.
The Delta Tau Deltas have agreed
that the loosing side will submit to be
ing thrown into the millrace by the
winners. In that house the Hughes sup
porters are in the minority, so the pros
pects for them are not very bright.
In the Kappa Sigma house the sides
are exactly even, 18 to 18. There the
losing men will have to stage sore sort
of an entertainment and provide a din
ner for their victors.
The Phi Delts have arranged for a
banquet at the Osburn a week from Sun
day. The two sides are evenly matched
in numbers and the loosers will have to
finance the dinner.
Some of the individual wagers were in
the form of dinners for two or four at
the Osburne. Many bets of candy were
made by the co-eds. A freshman and a
senior made an unusual bet, almost. The
senior, if he lost, agreed to wear a
green cap one whole day, while the
freshman, if he were the looser, promised
to sit all day, or at least at every pos
sible opportunity, on the senior bench.
The freshman, however decided that he
was taking great chances and “resigned”
on the bet.

intercollegiate basketball was expen

advanced by several members of the

three field goals out of four attempts.
