Declare Gridiron and Accommo dations Inadequate From All Standpoints. Prominent Portland alumni of the University of Oregon are severe in their general criticism of the football accommodations at Kincaid field, Eu genp, asserting that the football au thorities have no moral right to invite a large crowd to witness the big games with the present inconveniences. In the first place they say, the seat ing accommodations are inadequate from the standpoint of protecting one from the elements. It has rained heavily at the big Eugene games for the past two years and nothing has been done to alleviate the conditions existing with respect to the field and covering arrangements. The walks leading to the canvas cov ered bleachers and the small grandstand are little protection against mud and splashing water. The canvas top does not entirely keep out the rain, say those who sought shelter under it in several por tions of the bleachers. The University of j Washington girls, it is claimed, found ' themselves seated in an uncovered por tion of the bleachers. East year the Ore ! gon Agricultural college girls had much | the same complaint in respect to being rained on and splashed on. Costly kid shoes were ruined. Prank Templeton, acting as spokesman for a large number of Portland graduates of the university, said: "It is high time the university was providing adequate protection to its guests. It is not right that several thousand people should be invited to Eugene and then permitted to become rain soaked. An appropriation of $10,000 has been made for a new field, I understand, and some movement should be made toward utilizing it. "Each year we have the same old com plaint about the muddy field: “ ‘We’d have beaten them on a dry j field.’ | “Why isn’t the field drained properly? Friday was a fine day in Eugene, yet the rain of Saturday made the field a quag mire of sticky mud, because the tiling system would not carry off the storm water. If the $10,(MX) appropriation is not available, I understand from compe tent authority that for $700 Kincaid field can be resurfaced and adequately drained. It is time somebody got busy.”—Oregon Journal. -n Moore and Moore 42-14 W. Eighth St. DRESSMAKING Special Rates on GOWNS, SUITS, SCHOOL-DRESSES FOR OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER Call and Inquire HOLLY E.

FACULTY DOES NOT MEET Only Four Profs. Three Members of Committee, at Meeting Tuesday. Although arrangements had been made to announce election returns at the faculty colloquium meeting Tuesday night, only four faculty members tore themselves from the bulletin boards long enough to report at the meeting. These four were the three members of the colloquium committee, namely Dr. Joseph Schafer, Dr. E. S. Conklin, Karl W. On thank, secretary to the president, and Dr. W. P. Burton. Mr. Onthank only remained for a few minutes. No meeting was held. Bulletins were, however, received at the school of journalism until about 8:30 o’clock, telephoned from the down town newspaper officers by two of the newswriting students assigned to ‘ that particular work. Reserve recruits from the journalism classes, to be assigned to neglected city precincts, were also on hand in the journalism rooms. “A number of people used this news source,” said Colin V. Dyment, of the department of journalism. “although most of them went down town. We really provided for the bulletins in case of rain, so that the returns would be available without standing in the wet streets.” SOCCER TEAM TRAINS HARD Squad Working Into Shape for 0. A. C. Game. With about 23 men turning out reg ularly, the soccer squad is working into shape for the game with O. A. C., in ten days. This will be the first game for the squad in two years, meaning the playing of practically a green team in experience in college soccer. Jimmy Sheehy has been unable to turn out on account of work. Bill Tuerck's feet are too badly injured to let him into the game. Dick Wilcox, who came this year from Paeiflic University, is showing unusual promise. The company from which the soccer suits have been ordered says that it ship ped the suits two weeks ago, but has failed to get them here for some reasou. If the goods do not arrive by tomorrow morning the order will be cancelled and the outfits purchased by Graduate Man ager A. It. Tiffany, while in Portland for the Oregon-W. S. C. football game Saturday. If the outfits can be obtain ed from stock in Portland the soccer team will appear in new suits next week. PROF.

Campus Players, upperclass dramat ic honor society, has concluded arrange ments to stage a French comedy at the Eugene theatre on December eighth. The piay “A Live Corpse”, is guaranteed to be a clever bit of fun, coming from the pen of one of the most popular French dramatists, Alfred Herant. The scenes have been adapted to suit American con ditions, but all the pep and live stuff is left in. Special scenery is being constructed and negotiations have been opened with IMrector Gilbert of the Baker Stock com pany asking him to give the production its finishing touches. In looking about for a play the Campus Players decided that it must be a howl ing comedy from start to finish. “The Live Corpse" fills this requirement as well as giving excellent opportunity for various types of acting. The fun of the play results from the efforts of a young newspaper reporter to attain fame. This is the fourth play presented by the Campus Players. The three summer school productions, “The Truth,” by ! Clyde Fitch ; “Hedda Gabler,” by Ibsen ; and a set of local one-acts, have been re viewed in past Emeralds. The present roster of Campus Players includes the following: President, Char les Prim: vice president. Earl Fleisch man; secretary. Rosalind Bates; Man ager, George Colton.
