Parents and Faculty Members
Believe Much Time and

BEFORE 0. A. C. GAME
Conflagration for Washington
Game Taxed Frosh Too
Greatly, Is Declared.
One of the ancient traditions of the
University, the freshmen bonfire, is
threatened with annihilation. Parents
of the freshmen and members of the
^-faculty have objected to the excessive
■ amount of time and expense necessary to 1
the building of such a conflagation as was
set off last Friday night. According to
Karl Onthank, secretary to President
Campbell, no official action has been
Dean Elizabeth Fox hopes the student
council will take steps to regulate the
subsequent freshmen bonfires. “Bon
fires ought to be discontinued,” she de
clared, “They require too much effort on
the part of the men and women of the
University.” She considers the serious
purpose of the students interefered with
and their lessons made to suffer. The
students are just now beginning to re
cuperate from the physical effects, be
lieves Miss Fox.
“It is perfectly absurd for the girls
to get up in the small hours of the
morning to feed the men. The girls lose
sleep which can not be made up; their
schedule is too strenuous.” Miss Fox
said, “I heartily disapprove of the part
v'h!. h the-v.-oEncn assumed in connection
with the bonfire, although I admire their
spirit.” Miss Fox gave this quotation as
descriptive of the situation. “Oh sense
thou art both good and right, but non
sense thou art exquisite.”
The student council has passed a
ruling that the freshmen build two bon
fires; one before the Washington game
and one before the game with O. A. C.
President Pixley of the freshmen class
says, “The class will not be able to build
i the fire for the O. A. C. game owing
j to the time and expense which went
; into the bonfire before the Washington
Mr. Onthank says such a bonfire as
the one Friday night is dangerous to the
([buildings near the fire. He says, also,
that bonfires, if allowed in the future,
will probably not be over 15 by 15 feet
DANCE FINANCIAL SUCCESS
$500 Taken at Doors Saturday Night;
$130 Clear for Juniors.
The Homecoming dance given by the
junior class last Saturday was a finan
cial success, according to Joe Hedges,
chairman of the dance committee.
There were 500 paid paid admissions
and it is estimated that there were 150
alumni present. The expenses amounted
to approximately $120, leaving about
$130 clear for the exchequer of the

PLAY DATES ARE CHANGED
“Stronglieart” to Be Staged November
17-18 Instead of November 10-11.
“Strongheart,” the play which will
be produced by the Guild Players, will
be staged Friday and Saturday nights,
November 17 and 18, instead of on
November 10 and 11, as previously an
[Refined Bull-pup Is Sought;
Must Have Melodious Howl

ten senior in “Strongheart,” to be pro
duced in Guild hall by the Guild Play
ers on next Friday and Saturday even
Yes, and what is a college play with
out a real, live bull-pup for a mascot
That is just what is bothering the mem
bers of the cast of this play. All - the
parts have been assigned, and rehearsals
aore ‘progressing without "unhitch, untiMhe
(action reaches "a“.certain point. ° This is
where “Siegfried,” gjthe talented dog of
Billy’s is supposed to make his entrance, j
But where can such a dog be found,
that is the question? It can not be an
ordinary canine, but a refined, intelligent
creature, absolutely accustomed to femin
^ ine society. And above all, he mult
be musical, possessing a voice that will
harmonize readily with the atmosphere
of the play.
Needless to say, such a dog is hard to
find, much less obtain, and consequently
a thorough search of all the fraternity
and sorority houses has been made.
“Caesar,” the Kappa Sigmao house dog,
the Phi Belt and Sigma Chi dogs, and
even that fjanny“little fussy dog which is
making its home at the Delta Gamma
JnSuse, ohave all had their tryouts, but
have obeen found unsuitable for such a
difficult role. No amount of grease
paint, jio matter how well applied, could
make anjp one of these over into such
a dog as “Siegfried” must be!
The date of the play is approaching
fast, and the problem of the dog is
beginning to be quite serious. Will the
play be cancelled, or will some suitable
specimen for the part be found at the
eleventh hour, and thus save the pro
duction? As yet, it is hard to tell just
what the outcome will be, but one thing
is certain, that if the play is produced,
the role of “Siegfried” must be filled.
WILL ISK FOR SOC
LEVY FOR BUDGET
Womn’s League Wants Amend
ment to Constitution of
“Such a Budget Would Not Be
Elastic and Opposition
Arises” Says Jaureguy.
The Women’s League of the Univer
sity will be placed on a new financial
basis if a proposed amendment to the
constitution of the student body is pass
ed. Although no definite steps have
been taken to have the amendment for
mulated or presented to the student body,
the student council will discuss the pro
position at its next meeting November
22, and will vote upon the measure at
that time. If the student council does
not endorse the amendment it is under
stood that a representative of the Wo
men’s League will present it to the as
sociated student body at its meeting in
The amendment as outlined by Mrs.
George Gerlinger, originator of the plan
and a member of the board of regents,
would give 50 cents out of each student
tax paid by the women of the university,
to a special fund to be administered by
the Women’s League. This, it is argued
by the supporters of the movement,
would provide a tangible budget for the
enterprises carried on under the auspices
of the Women’s League. At the present
time there are in the neighborhood of
400 women in the university and had
the amendment been in force this year,
$200 or over would have been at the
disposal of the league.
Jeanette Wheatley, president of the
Women’s League, is strongly in favor of
the amendment and feels that it is
necessary to free the women of the
school from having to pay special taxes
at irregular and frequent 'intervals
throughout the year.
Dean Elizabeth Fox says that be
cause of her own experience in Barnard
it seems rather irregular to have the
finances for women’s activities handled
through the same channels as the reg
ular student body affairs. She also be
lieves that new interest would be taken
by the women in the affairs now given
under the auspices of the league and that
interest in events not yet attempted by
the women here will he aroused.
The movement is not sufficiently well
understood as yet to have aroused much
discussion, according to Nicholas Jaure
guy, president of the student body. How
ever. he says that several members of the
student council are opposed to its pas
“The opposition arises from the fact
that such a dubget would not be elastic,”
said Jaureguy. “Either too much or not
enough money would bo on hand each
year. Another problem would be faced
in determining just what affairs would
actually come under the direction of the
Women’s League. For instance, the re
cent luncheon on the campus in con
nection with the Homecoming day pro
gram was actually handled by the student
body although the general impression
was that it was given by the Women’s

Discusses William James’ “Pragmatism.”
Regular Sessions Held.
A club has existed on the campus for
nearly two years which is a near ap
proach to the free Intellectual Activities
Society.0 Tins club, originally cnlTe3“X,”
was started by I^ois 0Gray. Nelly fox,
Kate Stanfield, Grace MaeKenzie, Kate
Shaefer and Caralie Snell, with the guid- ,
ance and suggestions of Miss Mary Wat
son and Mrs. Mabel Holmes l’arsons*.
The purpose of the club was to facili
tate free and unembrassed discussion of
ideas to a greater extent than is possible
in a class room. The club lias been
known as the Ethics club, because for
merly the discussions were from that
point of view. This year the club is
discussing philosophy, and the name
Quadrangle has been used, though not
adopted as yet, according to the presi
dent Nellie C'ox. The club meets every !
Tuesday evening at the home of Mrs. !
Parsons for their philosophical discus- '
sions. The club is now discussing Wil- j

SELL SORORITIES SWEETS
Y. W. Vends Candy in Houses Friday
Noons to Raise Money.
The Y. IV. C. A. has introduced the
sale of “Hersheys” and other refresh
