Request for Class Hours Will
Be Considered by
Advisory Council of Six Mem
bers Appointed at Faculty
Meeting December 7.
The petition of the student council for
the reinstallation of class hours was
referred to a committee of class advis
ers, and an advisory council of the faculty
was chosen at faculty meeting December
The committee consists of Colin V. Dy
ment, advisor of the senior class,
f chairman, John F. Bovard, junior advisor,
D. Walter Morton and Dean Elizabeth
Fox, sophomore advisors, and Dean John
Straub and Mrs. Mabel Holmes Parsons,
advisors of the freshmen. All matters
not pertaining to routine matters are re
ferred to a committee before discussion
in meeting. Karl W. Onthank, secretary
to President Campbell, said that the mat
ter of class hours will be brought up
for action before the faculty on its next
meeting, January 11, 1917.
The advisory council of the faculty
which was chosen to represent the fac
ulty which was chosen to represent the
faculty consists of three deans and
three who are not deans. The members
of the council are: H. D. Sheldon, dean
of the school of education; Joseph
Schafer, dean of the extension division;
and Eric W. Allen, dean of the school
of journalism; John F. Bovard, profes
sor of zoology; Dr. George Rebec, pro
fessor of philosophy; and J. D. barnett,
professor of political science.
The purpose of this council, according
to Mr. Onthank, is to create a small
advisory board which can meet with the
president on matters which do not re
quire a general faculty meeting. As the
faculty is growing larger each year, this
was thought of in an attempt to simplify
administration machinery as much as
Bgzaar in Portland Successful; Pledges
to Date Total $9,439.67.
The most recent addition to the Wo
man’s building fund is $250. This was
(given by the Pan-Hellenic society of
Portland, and was raised by a successful
bazar held recently at the University
club. This amount pays half of their
pledge to the Woman’s building.
Mrs. G. T. Gerlinger, a member of the
board of regents, in a letter' to Colin
V. Dyment, enumerated the pledges which
have been made to the fund. The last
public report of this fund was made at
the June commencement. At that time,
the treasury contained $6,945.67. Since
then, the pledges to date have been as

The club which is composed of upper

Some of the University students show
ed considerable previous pawnshop ex
perience on Thursday when they sold
their old books to Mr. Haylor of Colum
bus, Ohio.
These wily students, instead of selling
all their books at once, took them up
two or three at a time, in this way re
ceiving much more for them than they
would otherwise get. Of the 1,000
books that were bought, the students re
ceived approximately $200. Mr. Haylor
attempted to give from 25 to 35 per cent
of the list price of the books.
The books received were chiefly old
high school texts and books used in
courses which are now discontinued in
the University. About one-third of the
books were rejected either because they
were old editions or because they were
in too dilapidated a condition.
Mr. Haylor declared his results in Ore
gon were the third best of any univer
sity he has so far visited in the west.
Meeting of National Education Associa
tion Wanted in Portland.
President P. L. Campbell recently sent
the following telegram to Robert J.
Aley, president of the National Educa
tional association. “The University of
Oregon cordially joins in the northwest’s
invitation to the executive committee of
the National Education association to
hold the next meeting of the association
in Portland. The city affords ample ac
commodations, and the entire northwest
will extend a most hearty welcome.”
When President Campbell was in the
east last month he extended a personal
invitation to President Aley to bring the
1917 convention to Portland saying that
the University might be able to co-oper
ate somewhat in bringing speakers to the
west, by using some of them at summer

Will Try to Cure Relapse of
State and Give It Re
newed Growth.
Present Runty Stage Due to
Undue Values Put on
The Commonwealth aims to pull Ore
gon out of the “runty” stage it is now
in, back to renewed growth. According to
Dean Young two things are necessary
to accomplish this; first, to have ideas
rightly assimilated by the people, and
secondly, to have more people of the
right kind come to the country. When a
domestic animal is in a runty condition
it is brought back to renewed growth by
giving it the right food rations. Ideas
are the food of the state, so they should
be given to the people of the state to
assimilate, he declared.
Of course the question is raised as to
what rations of ideas to prescribe. There
is an average of four or five persons to
a square mile, outside of Portland, in
this state. It is no wonder that roads
cannot be built, or schools supported, or
water power economically used, but ad
ditional people cannot make a living here
until we acquire some ideas that will
enable us to successfully use our re
sources. The Comomnwealth congress
has then as its salient factor in the prob
lem of promoting Oregon’s development:
obtaining of such ideas among Oregon’s
people so that they can demonstrate
successfully the use of Oregon’s re
sources. This done, the right people will
flock to Oregon, because of the many
advantages in climate and scenery it
A few years ago through the Lewis
and Clark Centenial Exposition nnd
other means of publicity, a large influx
of people was started towards Oregon,
and everything seemed to promise well
for growth into a vigorous common
wealth. {But through false and unduly
high values put on Oregon lands, and un
earned increments siezed by newcomers,
the state has relapsed into its present
runty stage. So by getting power of mak
ing profitable use of Oregon’s resources
it must this time be supplemented by
earned increment by the newcomers.
Contest With 0. A. C. Girls to Be Ar
ranged After Holidays.
A swimming meet with the O. A. O.
girls will be a feature of the girls’ swim
ming classes if the girls continue their
present hard work, according to Miss
Cummings, head of the department of
physienl education. Ed Shockley, men’s
instructor in swimming, has also men
tioned the matter of a men’s meet with
O. A. C., but as yet nothing definite
has been decided.
The two meets would not necessarily
be on the same date, though both will
probably be held here. The date of the
girls meet will be arranged as soon after
the holidays as an open date can be
Juniors and Freshmen Girls Handicapped
by La:k of Basket Tossers.
Basketball practice is held daily in the
girls’ gymnasium with four classes re
presented. The seniors and sophomores
have had no trouble getting girls to play
but the junior and freshmen have been
handicapped by lack of players. In past
years at least three teams of freshmen
girls have reported for practice but this
year few have turned out.
Several women of the faculty have re
ported and are practicing with the sen
iors. The sophomore and freshmen girls
meet every Tuesday nnd Thursday after
noon at 5 o’clock.

Registrar Tiffany Anticipates a Large
Enrollment Second Semester.
About 125 new students will enter the
University next semester, according to
the expectations of Registrar A. R. Tif
fany. Last year there were but 50 stu
Mr. Tiffany' bases his expectations on
the fact that since the registration in
September was so much above the nor
mal that it is quite probable there will be
a corresponding increase in February.
There were many who were so late send
ing in their applications for admission
in September that it was impossible for
them to enroll then, but it is likely that
they will do so in February. The Eu
gene high school will graduate 47 pupils
at the mid-year, 40 of which will enter
the University at that time. The Port
land high schools will also contribute a
large number.

“Some in rags and some iu tatters."
But at that the seniors were there
with bells on their toes when it came to
having a good time. The hardtimes
lottery dance at the Sigma Nu house
last night was a scream. With a bus
the senior couples wera picked up over
town last night and when the assembl
age came under the spotlight it was a
motley array. Checkered suits, tube
skirts, rag bags, gunny sacks—in fact
everything that could be used in the
name of clothing—was in eviuence.
Staid and sedate senior girls traveled
to their grammar school days while the
men emulated anything they could con
jure up.
The “stepping” started at. 8:30 and
lasted to twelve with a lot of pie “a la
mode” thrown in for a breathing spell.
Motion Picture Brought to Eugene
Through Efforts Science Department.
A motion picture film, “How Life Be
gins,” brought to Eugene by the sci

Rex theater all Monday afternoon. It
is described as “showing how to present
facts of sex life in an accurate, illumin
ating and aspiring manner.”
All the University faculty and students
wishing to go can get tickets free at the
Co-op, the library, the botany and bi
ology departments.
The film tells how plants and ani
mals come into existence. The authors,
(1. E. Stone, A. II. and .1. A. Long, Ph.
1)., of the University of California, show
that all life comes only from life, and
all new individuals arise only from other
living creatures of their own kind. The
reproduction of one celled" animals is
shown in the first part of. the picture.
A drop of water is placed on a slide and
a picture is taken through a microscope
of the protozoans and one Is shown to
constict in the middle and form two living
After this is shown the development
of the sea urchin, the swallow-tail butter
fly, the frog, and the chick.
University Students and Faculty Dis
tribute Food to Needy.
Approximately 40 basket dinners were
distributed to Eugene’s poor Thanks

Christian associations had the matter in

Bertha Dorris, police matron of Eugene.
Each sorority gave at least one basket,
some as high as four, while other groups
of students not it; houses also contribut
ed. The Bartlc Court faculty and the
faculty living at Mrs. Brown’s contribut
ed two baskets.
The fraternities have special plans for
Christmas time for poor children of the
