Even Faculty Members Are Affected;
List of Blind God’s Victims
Faculty and frosh, football hero
and plain “stude,” have been hard hit
bv the blind god and during the last
few months not a few University
people have learned to mark time to
the strains of a wedding march. It
isn’t the food speculator that gets
rich in time of war, it’s the minister.
Ann Hales now signs her name
"Mrs. Lloyd Tegart,” and Mary Alice
Hill answers to “Mrs. Ernest Wat
kins.” Ralph Hurn started off to war
in a heart-free condition, but later
decided to take a Vancouver maid to
be Mrs. Hurn.
Robert McMurraiy and Gertrude
Taylor were married in the early
summer and “Bob” is soon going to
take a married man's vacation “some
where in France.”
Other university people that have
been married during the summer are
Hermione Hawkins, formerly instruc

With Total Now at 831, Enrollment
Is But 57 Short of Number
Registered Last Fall
With 831 students enrolled in the
University when the Registrar’s of
fice closed this afternoon, the total
i registration to date is only 57 short
MV$he registration during the first
semester of last year. This is con
sidered exceptional by members of
the faculty and the administration de
partment, who prophesied an enroll
ment of approximately 700 on account
| of the war. This does not include
I the 50 or more students enrolled in
; tho six weeks’ ordnance course,
j Although no definite figures are
available as yet, showing the enroll
ment in the several classes, it is evi
; dent that an unusually large fresh
| man class is registered. If Dean
Straub’s estimated proportion of two
freshmen to one old student is accu
| rate, there are 554 freshmen in the
| University. /

Use of Austin Organ at Methodist
Episcopal Church Has Been
Granted to Students
Tlie University school of music has
augmented its course this year by
adding a department of organ, at the
head of which it has placed John
Stark Evans, recently pf Pomona Col
lege, California. The use of the Aus
tin organ in the First Methodist Epis
copal church) has been granted to the

cials, and a pedal practice piano will
I be installed in the music hall on the
! campus. /A-i.-v' Jfc.
Dr. John J. Landsbury, dean of the
I school of music, says in regard to the
new department: “Our department of
| organ is not excelled on the coast;
■ that is not •enthusiasm but fact. Our
j instructor is a finished artist, and the
organ is one of the most beautiful in
the state. The Methodist church is
to be warmly commended for allowing
the use of their equipment in the in
terest of the public.”
Professor Ralph H. Lyman’s place
I as .head of the department of voice
j will be filled this year by Arthur
Paguy-Cote, who has studied voice
culture for o*ver twenty years. His
elementary vocal study was done in
Canada, where he later graduated
from the Conservatorie LaSalle, and
he later spent four years of study in
Faris and London. Since coming to
the United States, Mr. Faguy-Cote ha.
spent one year in concert work and
one year in teaching. “I found Mr.
Faguy-Cote in Chicago,” said Profes
sor Landsbury, “and I chose him out
of sixty-five applicants for the posi
tion. Mr. Faguy-Cote is an artist in
every respect.”
The department of public school mu
sic is to be under the direction of
Mrs Anna Beck, of Icons' Beach. Cal
ifornia. Mrs. Beck took her train
ing in the University of California,
and has had several years of prac
tical experience in the work she is
to teach. There has been an increase
of one hundred fifty per cent in en
rollment in this department over the
enrollment last year.
Plans for the glee clubs are as yet
necessarily unformed. The Woman's
Glee Club will be° under the direction
of Mrs. Daise Beckett Middleton, in
structor in voice, while Mr. Faguy-Cote
will have charge of the Men’s Glee
Club. Owing to the great number”
of old students who are not back,, at
school o this ydarj there o are many
places open for the men in the gibe
club. Mrs. Middleton is anticipating
a brilliant year for the girls because
of the exceptional talent which lias
entered this year. Tryouts for both
clubs will be announced sometime
next week:. .*. •'.' ; ’* . . *•.

Oregon’s schedule is not complete
at present. For the second time in
three years, the University of Wash
ington cancelled their game with the
'varsity saying their schedule was too
strenuous. This leaves a three-week
period without a game. Manager A. R.
Tiffany has telegraphed Johnny Beck
ett’s team of marines, who h^ve beaten
California twice already, for a game
in Portland November 3, but he has re
ceived no reply as yet. If the Ma
rines are unable to come north, Tif
fany wants to play the U. S. Training
Station team of Seattle in the Puget
Sound city. The schedule as it now
stands, follows:
