Capitol City at 9:45. Miss Fox met the
party at the depot, and all were bundled
into seven machines which were placed

day. The first stop was made at the Deaf
school where under the supervision of

The state hospital in conjunction with
the newly built receiving ward, for wo
men, are models of cleanliness and effi

inmates are held in these hugs buildings.

paced the floor behind heavy iron bars.
Inmates do all the baking supervised
by an experienced cook. The women’s re

appliances for surgery as well as electric
soothers for colds, patent shower baths
and numerous other contrivances.
Four hundred men are in the state
penitentiary. The class saw some in a
ball game in the yari, others at work in
the flax mill, laboring in the fields and
at various other occupations. A touch
of real pathos was experienced by all,
when the prison band of 20 pieces, arose
and played the national anthem with
much fervor and feeling. Dingy cells, in
adequate fire protection, and poor venti
lation were only a few of the arguments
brought forth by Warden Murphy in his
appeal for a new penitentiary.
Freedom, absence of armed guards and
prison stripes were the outstanding fea
tures of penitentiary life as viewed by
The Tubercular Hospital is a six mile
ride from the penitentiary. Close to 00
patients, including men and women of
all ages, are housed in the near-open

The Boy's Training school is all that
the name implies. Here some 135 boys
varying in ages from 10 to 18 are beiug

in industries as few more fortunate boys
are. At one end of the building youths
were busy with cobbler’s tools, close by

alumni and guests. The usual things and
then some, will be served in huge lots
from each booth, and the band will play
during the luncheon hour.
In fact, the blind is going to feature
strongly in things this year; it’s to be
everywhere at once, and null play for
everything but the Prom and the paint

parade leaves the Administration build

One of the features of the parade will
be the incorporation of the women this
year in the form of a Red Cross corps.
Every woman in college is urged to come
to the campus luncheon in white or light
dresses. After the luncheon they will be
furnished with red crosses by the girls
of the parade committee. Every co-ed is
expected to take part in the parade this
year as well ns the men. If the women
have guests they cannot leave let them
put on light clothes and march with the
girls, say the committee. Every woman

thing else that's responsible for the
situation, they want it remedied. Ken (

Faculty Considers Wihdrawal
Petitions and Frames New
Senior examinations will not he clim
inated this year at the University of
Oregon. At a faculty meeting Thursday
lhe committee on senior exams reported
that the present disorganized condition
of the University made it inadvisable to
discontinue the finals for the seniors.
The committee felt that since those
seniors who have dropped regular work
to enroll in military courses would have
to take final examinations in the latter,
which are for the most part lecture
courses, it would be difficult to discrim
inate between these and regular courses.
Also, since the Oregon pageant has been
postponed, extra pressure from that
source will not be felt during the exam
The report of the committee was ac
cepted and no change will be made in
the examination requirements this year.
Petitions from students wishing to
withdraw from the University to engage
in agricultural and military activities
were brought before the faculty, and a
committee of which Dean E. W. Allen of
the school of journalism is chairman, will
consider the petitions and make an early

University professors for a fund to be
placed at Oregon.
DISCUSS FIELD DAY PLANS

ports From Department Heads.
Plans for a big field day to be held
May 25 were discussed at a meeting of
the Women’s Athletic association held in
Dr. Schmidt’s lecture room at 5 o’clock
Eyla Walker, president of the associa
tion, had charge of the meeting and the
heads of the different sports talked on
the ways and means of holding the big
event for women and what the different
trophies will go for. The chief speakers
were Mary Chambers, canoeing; Caroline
Alexander, tennis; Gladys Wilkins, golf;
Ada Hall, archery; Esther Furuset, base
ball. and Claire Warner, track.
The last baseball game between the
different women’s fraternity houses and
clubs will be played on that day to de
cide the championship.
The women will have to turn out in
large numbers in order to furnish enough
material to make the affair a success and
they must do so immediately with less
than three weeks to get in shape for the
meet, is the verdict given out by Miss
Mabel Louise Cummings, director of the
women’s gymnasium department.
