Luton Ackerson, H5, Tells cf
Overseas Experiences Since
War Cuts Down Enrollments
From Usual 225 to 25;
The following is n letter received by
Torn Cutsforth, ’18, from Luton Acker
son, who is attending Oxford University.
Mr. Ackerson was a Friendly hall man,
graduated from the University of Ore
gon in 1015, and was awarded the Rhodes
Scholarship from Oregon last year.
“I suppose that you have already
learned that I am safely here, but per
haps you noticed that the ‘Alaunia’ was
sunk. We were originally booked for the
‘Alaunia,’ but did not go by her because
she postponed her trip. However, some
letters for me went down with her, and
one of the boys lost a box of books
which were following on her.
“The colleges are very gloomy and
| silent with only the ' Americans and a
j few medically unfit Englishmen left to
j carry on Oxford’s traditions. St. Johns
! College (Oxford) has about 25 students
: of its normal 225. Most of the other
colleges have less.
“This city has some of the oldest things
that I have ever seen. The buildings
date back as far as the fourteenth cen
tury and are never restored until abso
lutely necessary. All the colleges have
stone figures of different kinds, and they
are so badly worn that they look laugh
j able and hideous.
“In St. John’s Charles I. lived when he
gathered his parliament to Oxford. Archi
blshop Laud's old room is next to mine,
and Laud himself is buried in the Chapel
at St. Johns. Cramner, Ridley and Lati
mer were martyred out in front of here.
There is a monument to them built in
1841. All of the colleges can claim some
such distinguished men who have lived
within their walls.
“But I haven’t been able to do much
enthusiasm over all these literary nnd
historical relics. You see, I had such
a big glorious time crossing the continent
that things here seem very quiet. There
is a lot of studying to be done and 1
am having a little trouble in getting
down to hard work. At present 1 am
preparing for an examination in “l’ass
Moderations” for next March and must

“I am going to write you a longer let
ter when I have learned more about the
place. Meanwhile, please write me a
long letter such as you used to write me
at Richland. I long for letters from
home since I am still suffering from
homesickness, and still feel like an exile
for three long years.

Either Kincaid field or the hockey field

Since the games have been assured
there has been a noticeable increase in
the turnouts and more pep in the prac
tices. Father Moran, an old player who
has lost none of his cunning, has show
ed the boys some of the “inside stuff.”
Under his tutelage the forwards have

Miss Thomson Says Movement
Started Three Years Ago.
Result of Attempt to Strengthen
Weaker Parts of Girls’
“We began the Oregon Trail move
ment in IMS after we discovered that
the backs, legs, chests and arms of the
girls were weaker than other parts of
the body,” said Miss Harriett Thomp
son. of the women’s physical department,
at a meeting of the 'Women’s Athletic
association in Guild hall last Tuesday.
“The weakness is caused by the fact
that children generally stop playing at
the age of twelve. The Oregon Trnil

Jack Dolph and Muriel Perrin
ger Are Married.
Couple Leave for Akron, Ohio,
Where Groom Was Of
A college romance that culminated
Saturday in the marriage of Jack Dolph,
Varsity yell leader, and Miss Muriel
Perringer, Gamma Phi Beta pledge, sur
prised campus circles with its sudden
Dolph secured a withdrawal card from
the University Thursday saying he had
been offered a position with the Fire
stone Tire & Rubber Co., of Akron,
Ohio, and would soon go to that place.
He left for Portland Thursday night.
Friday afternoon Miss Perringer told
her sorority sisters she was going to
Portland for the week-end and attend the
Washington State-U. of O. football game.
It was noticed she was taking more of
her clothes than would be needed for
the week-end visit but nothing was
thought of that.
Saturday afternoon Dolph was to have
appeared upon Multnomah field to help
in the leading of yells. Ilis non-appear
ance caused some wonderment among the
funs and a few hours later it became
known that during the interim of the
game he and Miss Perringer had gone
secretely to Vancouver and there been
joined in wedlock. They are now on
their way to Ohio.
Dolph’s marriage is the second in the
Dolph family within the last two months
and the elopment of Miss Perringer
makes the second Muriel of Pendleton to
have eloped in the last four months.
Miss Perringer is the daughter of Mr. j
and Mrs. George Perringer, of Pendle- j
ton, and had recently been elected to ;
University Players. She was a fresh- :
man in the University. Her father is a j
wealthy eastern Oregon wheat rancher.
Dolph is a member- of Beta Theta Pi
fraternity and was a second basso in the
men's glee club. He was elected to yell j
leadership position in the first of the
school year but resigned Thursdnv of
last week. He is the son of Mrs. Elisa
C. Dolph, of Portland.
The young couple kept their plans
secret from their fraternity sisters and
brothers and the news of the marriage
was as startling to them as to the gen
eral student body.
The ceremony at Vancouver was per
formed by Rev. O. W. Ellsworth, pastor
of the Vancouver Methodist church,
j James Vance and Leonard Floan were
; the witnesses.

a letter has just been received from the
American Consul-General there asking

The letter is from A. L. Moreau
Gottsehalk and was received by Eric W.

journalism is about to be introduced in

The letter also says that the editors of
Rrazil favor the type of instruction in
journalism that has been worked out in
of girls, and all kinds of outdoor sports
are permitted, from mountain climbing to
archery. There are now 25 camps in
I this state, and it is my hope that in a
few years there will be a camp in every
high school in the state of Oregon. Two
thirds of our University women are Ore
gon born, and if all girls take the proper
exercise before entering college, the cor
rective work here will be greatly lessen
