ing for a place on Bill’s ’varsity track
team. Students who were never on the
field previously are romping away with
places. The n*ost of the events so far
have, however, been in the sprints in

Annual Junior Dance Will Start
on Time Without Fail.
New Features Will Be Added
and Alphabetical Seating
Arrangement Abolished.
Ken Bartlett, general chairman of the
Junior I’rom committee, has announced
the final windup of plans, and for once,
in its life, the annual third-year dance
is to be run off not only as planned,
but likewise on time.
There will be some new features, and
some old ones; for instance, there will
be decorations—many of ’em—with flags,
patriotic symbols, and forest greens in
predominance. The committee chairmen
are keeping all features caged up and
refuse to spring them before time.
Once more, the girls are to be allowed
to sit where, they please; no alphabetical
stalls will be placed.
Bert Breeding, chairman of the work
committees for the entire week-end, has
sentenced sixteen men to hard labor from
8 till 12 Saturday placing the decora

What is a time killing machine? We
don’t know but we do have something in
mind that might be one. It's about eight
feet long and has a long tube at each end
and an electric motor and a few wheels,
but mostly it is shrouded in -scrap iron
and mystery. You build a fire under it
and something is supposed to happen—
ask Professor A. E. Caswell what it is—
the creation belongs to him.
From the rear windows of the journ
alism annex one may obtain a bird's-eye
view of the continuous performance con
sisting of a small cloud of smoke arising
from a fire beneath it.
Usually there is to be found the
figure of a man lying beside the boiler
and gazing intently into the mysterious
insides. The latter gave rise to the
time-killer appellation, as it is estimated
that students from the chemistry depart
ment when they have nothing t{se to do,
can go out and lie down in University
street any number of hours at a stretch
and be able to state that they have been
engaged in experimental research work.
The toy is at present the pet of the de
partment and is being tried out every
afternoon to the accompaniment of much
cog-wheel music and considerable smoke.

Work Committees For Tomorrow Morning
Announced; Report 8:15 Says Chairman
Bring along your hammers, picks, shovels, axes, wheelbarrows and other im
plements for outdoor use tomorrow, is the appeal of Bert Breeding, chairman of
“clean-up” day. All these will be needed for the work planned to be done on the
campus. In the past various construction companies operating in the vicinity of
the campus have supplied the needed tools. These, however, have moved, and this
year the students are left entirely on their own rsources. It behooves all, there
fore. Breeding emphasizes, to come armed with some outdoor tool. Axes will be
in demand for the work on the portage and bridge.
The accompanying list embraces the names of those who will be engaged
tomorrow in the different departments of the campus clean-up. and construction
work . The name at the head of each group is that of the man in charge of
that particular department of the activities. Each man on these committees is
urged to report to his leader at 8:15 o’clock tomorrow morning, and the general
warning is given that old clothes will be the approved style, for there is more or
less rough work to be done.
Meeting places for the different groups are announced as follows:
Portage, at the raceway;—Track, on the field—-Tennis courts, at the courts in
the back of Kincaid field—Walk between Beady and the Library, in front of
Deady—liaising the bridge, at the bridge which is the first one up the Millrace
from the Raceway—Frosh to help with the campus luncheon, in front of McClure
—Painting the “6”, corner of Eleventh and Alder—Junior Prom, at the Armory.

M. F. McClain Investigates Store at Se
attle Institution.
M. F. McClain, manager of the Co-op,
returned from Seattle last Saturday from
a fund ilnv trip during which lie visited
the Washington University Co-op and
studied the conditions there. Their store
is from 10 to 12 years old. During the
first year they sold not quite half as
much us Oregon's Co-op has sold this
I he Washington Co-op is on the
campus in a temporary building some
thing like the Journalism annex on Ore- I
gon’s campus. The store there is much
larger than Oregon’s; the stock in ten
nis rackets alone being as valuable as
the entire stock of goods carried by
Oregon's Co-op.
Mr. McClain says of the trip, “I’ve
gained some knowledge of store manage
ment and co-operative accounting from
the experience of the Washington store.
that will aid us in simplifying our book
keeping system and general cost system
and general cost of operation.
The Washington store has a fairly
large building fund saved out of their
earnings to build them a brick or con
crete building. This fund would have
been used this year if the war had not
disturbed conditions, but as things arc
now Percy Dearie, manager is waiting
a while before starting the building.

Everything in Readiness for
Senior Piay, “The Climbers.”
Cast Is Exceptional; Many Are
Seasoned Veterans of the
College Stage.
The curtain at the Eugene theatre will
rise promptly at 8:15 tomorrow evening
on the first act of the Senior play, "The
Climbers.” Everything is ready, the east
lias had its final rehearsal and Director
James Mott has pronounced the 1917
thespians prepared to put over the best
Senior play yet staked at Oregon.
If you have not yet made your dates
for “The Climbers” take a tip from those
who know and make them now. The Sen
ior play is the one big dramatic event of
the college year. It is the only Friday
evening attraction of the Junior Week
end calendar, and if you miss it you will
be sore on yourself for the rest of the
You can’t go wrong on “The Climb
ers.” Viewed from any angle tomorrow
evening’s performance is something you
ought to see for your own good.
The Clyde Fitch masterpiece is per
haps the best known play that has been
produced in this country during the pres
ent generation. It is the play that Amer
icans always refer to when comparing
their best dramatic work with that of
other nations. As a dramatic composition
it is perfect; r.s an acting vehicle some
idea of its strength may be gathered
from the fact that no less than six of the
leading lights on the American stage to
day were raised to their present enviable
position in stardom by the original pro
duction of “The Climbers.”
The cnst that will be seen tomorrow
evening in “The Climbers” is an excep
tional one. For genuine ability and his
trionic excellence they surpass any cast
that has yet been brought together at one
time on the local stage, and it is ex
tremely doubtful whether any college in
the country could produce a better com
pany of actors than those who make up
the cast of the 1917 play. Most of them
are seasoned veterans of the college
stage, with from throe to four years dra
matic honors attached to their names,
and each member is taking full advan
tage of the opportunity bis part in the
groat play given him to put over the best
effort of bis amateur stage career.
Seats for the Senior play are on sale
at the box office of the Eugene theatre
now. Those who want good ones should
reserve them at once. Reservations may
be made by ’phone.

AVith hands tightly gripping their
pocketbooks, members <«f the sophomore
class tried to slip past the three vigi
lants stationed at the door of Guild hull

of the 25 cent tax levied at the meeting.
This was voted in order to make up the
treasury deficit of $QW.50 which him been
holding over from the freshman year.
Over $10.00 was taken in by the com
“’Mac” Maurice reported on the soph
omore-freshman dance. The total receipts
of the dance were $80.70 and the ex
penses were $29.60 leaving a balance of
$.'17.10 to be equally divided between the
two classes. This leaves the class with
a deficit of $.*18.50 which is to be collect
