step is the making out of the study or
registration cards, and the class record
caTds, and the second, the filing of one
study card, and the class record cards
with the payment of all fees, if desired,
at the cashier’s window of the admin

carried around to each professor for his
signature, under ithe old system. Two
of these cards will be made out. the
original one by the advisor, and signed
by him, and a second, made out in dup
licate, by the student. The first card is
for filing at 'the business offices, and
the second is to be retained by the ad
visor, instead of by the student, as in
correctly stated in Thursday's Emerald.
At the same time, the two registration
cards are made out. class record cards

Great Struggle Is Cause ef Questions
Asked Miss Upleger.
Thfot the inquiring mind of University
students has taken the trend of war
time subjects is shown by a record of
questions asked, kept by Miss Margaret
C. Upleger, reference librarian at the
University library.
There is a notable recurrence upon the
list of the subjects of Red Coss, camou
flage, the second Liberty loan, women
in government work, nursing, text of

j-tio gfoat war, the T. M. C-. A.

and the health of the soldier.
Since the list of war books in the

(have been many inquiries for the books,
says Mrs. M. F. McClain, assistant
librarian. "Some of them are so much
in demand that they are promised for
weeks, ahead,’! she said.

Harold B. Say, of the Second company,
Oregon Coast Artillery, and Miss Lillian

Episcopal church. The ceremony took
place at the church in the presence of
Miss Patricia Paterson, of Portland, Mrs.
W. O. Prosser and daughters, Miss Ed
wina and Miss Jessie and Max F. Taylor,
of this city. The wedding was the culmi
nation of a college romance. Mr. Say and
Miss Porter were members of the sopho
more class at the University of Oregon
last year. Mrs. Say is a member of Kap
pa Alpha Theta sorority.
Mr. Say. who is a son of N. O. Say,
of 'Wilsonville, was the city edittor ot tne

Johnny Beckett’s Marines and
Dudley Clark’s Ambulance
Corps Men to Clash
New Year’s Day.
Western Players on Both Sides
at Pasadena; Hard Fight
Is Expected.
Two Oregon stars will lead the elevens
representing the East and West, which
will clash at Pasadena, Cal., on New
Year's Day, as the big athletic event
of the annual festival of roses. The
western team will be the eleven of the
United States Marine CoTps, stationed
at Mare Island, and the eastern that of
the ambulance unit at Allentown, Pa.
Johnny Beckett is the marines’ captain,

Dudley Clark, famed in Oregon gridiron
Clark Handles Ambulance Men
The Allentown squad, not to be out
done by the “Soldiers of the Sea,” also
have a number of western stars in
their lineup. The “Dead Wagon Crew"
is being coached by First Lieutenant
Dudley Clark, who for several years
was the mainstay of the Oregon team,
and who afterwards played for several
seasons with the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic club team, of Portland. Clark
has just received his commission as a
full-fledged first lieutenant, having been
serving as acting lieutenant since he
took over the Ambulance Corps team.
One of the shining lights in the
“Stretcher Carriers” team is “Tuffy”
Conn, the sensational Oregon Agricul
tural college halfback, of last season,
whose run of 100 yards in the O. A. C.
Nebraska game scored the only points
registered by the Aggies.
Marines Have Great Array
The marines have undoubtedly the
greatest array of Northwest football
stars ever gathered together, and the
game will be watched by all followers
of the gridiron in the country, as it
will bear on the old question of whether
or not the gridiron warriors of the West
are in the same class as those of the
tso flar tnis seasrm the Allentown
team has lost but one game, that going
to the Georgetown University, at Wash
ington. D. C., Thanksgiving Day. More
than 1000 members of the company made
the trip from Allentown in aTmv motor
trucks. It required 102 trucks to haul
them alb and only enough men were left
for guard duty.
From all angles that a dopester can
look at this game, it looks as though
it was going to be very close, but ail
Oregon students are back of the marines,
and are pulling hard for Beckett’s team
to uphold once more the football honor
of the West.

Spring Sports Dismissed
At a meeting of the athletic directors
of the colleges of the Pacific Coast,
held at San Francisco last week, the
subject of basketball and spring sports
was discussed. Owing to the heavy ex
pense of taking basketball teams on
| tours, and to the uncertainty of finance
the conference decided that the Uni
versity of California will not send a
basketball team north, nor will any
northern university send tteir team into
California’s territory. This agreement
means that basketball fans of the north
west, will not be able to see the Uni
versity of California squad in comparison
with northwest teams.
The schedule arranged hy the confer
ence provides that Oregon play nine
games. Five of these games will be

Duty Lies in Securing Training for Con

“A man shows more patriotism hy
keeping at his studies until the country
calls him. than by enlisting now,” said
Colonel William H. C. Bowen, who is in
charge of the military drill Wednesday
| “Orders from the war department are
specific and should he obeyed by every
student, unless there are some other par-'
tieular circumstances in his case. If I

have changed since six months ago, when
practically everyone who enlisted, and
[ had had some military raining was
made a corporal or sergeant. No more
such chances will be offered until the
[ next draft army is called. Then the
training that will be received in the
military drill here, will practically insure
a non-commission office in the drufi
army. These non-commissioned officers
will be directly in line for commissions
and appointments to the officers’ train
ing camps.
Tnless the University men stay in
college and get trained, the army will
suffer from a shortage of educated men

Dean Fox Asks Co-operation of Heads of
Houses at Meeting.
Term vacation rules were discussed
at a meeting of the heads of women’s
' fraternities, with Dean Elizabeth Fox,
on Thursday. Miss Fox urges co-op
eration in enforcement of regular l.'ni
versity Tides during vacation.
Plans for campus Red Cross work
vsere outlined by Miss Fox, who sug
gested that the head of each house do
all in her power to help the cause. It
was decided to leave membership cards
at t*- e different houses, giving l'n*
vcrsity women a chance to join the or
ganization before vacation.
i President Campbell Appeals to
Students to Remain
in College if
College Training Insures Good
Chance in National
"The one big task of college authori
ties now,” said president Campbell yes
terday, “is to try to keep down sudden
rushes for enlistment in the army. While
it is not the idea of the faculty to keep
men from enlisting, yet they wish to
strongly impress upon them the evil re
sults, should all men who have been
preparing themselves in schools of high
er learning, leave to join the army.
“It is not that we wish to appear
selfish in this matter, but it is in keep
ing with very strong advise from Sec
j retary of Walr Baker, and others of
i high governmental authority in Wash
j ington, D. C., that all men remain in
! school, until a time when their country
• shall need them.” The war department
cannot discriminate in favor of the
college man, while selecting the men to
be drafted, but it is easy to see that
should they be in a position to do so,
they would undoubtedly leave the col
lege man in school until he has finished
his education.
| Another big factor which presents
) itself, is need of training men to help
in ithe period of reconstruction, after
the war. The country will look to the
universities to furnish these men.
“The system of drafting is becoming
to be looked upon ns not only the most
fair, but the most successful method of
creating an army. People are fast
learning ito consider the draft more fav
orably than a« a mark of disgrace.
I “In the draft army the well-trained
college man will undoubtedly have a de
cided advantage, when it comes time
to select non-commissioned officers. He
will be thrown with a large number of
men, the majority of whom have had
no previous military experience, and
probably not much more than a high
school education. The ability of a
well trained man is bound to stand out
and gain for him ithe better positions.
If he enlists, he will lose this advan
tage, for he will be wi*?l men who have
years of military experience.
“A great many of the men have feared
that should they wait for the draft,
they would be placed in a department
of the army, which would be undesir
able. From the reports of former uni
versity students, who are now commis
sioned offices in the various camps, this
is not the case. Every oportunity is
offered for a man to make good in that
■department, for which he is best suited.
Drafted men are allowed to transfer
from one department to another, until
they have found congenial work.’’
Playground Management Will Be Theme
of Physical Trainer’s Talks.
.Miss Cartharine Winsliaw, assistant
physical director for wompn, at the
University of Oregon, will give a lecture
i next Tuesday evening, before the parent
teachers' association of Cottage Grove,
on the scientific management of play
grounds. Her lecture will be illustrated
by a series of stereopticon views, many
of which were procured by Miss Winslow
herself, in her varied and successful
career as a playground instructor, in
some of the largest cities in the United'
This will be the first of a series of
illustrated addresses that Miss Winslow

Kappa Sigma House Features Annual
Event for Man of Class
of 1921.
It was SOME party!
“The best, time of my college year,”
was the verdict of each of the 300
freshmen, who attended the annual Kap
pa Sigma frosh smoker. From 8 o'clock
in the evening until the final strains of
the last sorority house serenade, early
this morning, there was something doing
every minute for the green capper*.
The Kappa Sigma house was turned
into one grand den of iniquity, which
would have made dance halls of the
Yukon look like missionary establish
ments. The Red Dog saloon was there,
complete with the sawdust floor, and
the bar presided over by two linen-dad
bnrlScepets, who passed out for the
small price of one bone, various kind of
liquids before the anti-temperance days.
There were card tnliles, where freckles*
frosh bet huge stacks of their green
backs on the outcome of poker games,
and a roulette whell, which made mil
lionaires and hoboes. A table loaded
with an inexhanstable supply of cigar
ettes. smoking tobacco, pipes and
matches, made the evening enjoyable for
the many slaves of Ijady Nicotine.
Letter From War Department Says
Those Rejeoted After End of
Course Will Get Chance.
Uncle Sain nerds several hundred cap
able young men for civilian positions in
the ordnance department of the army, at
Washington, D. C.
This information is contained in a let
ter just received from officials of the
war department, by Professor C. C.
Jeremiah of school of commerce. The
letter advises that all students in the
ordnance courses of the University, who
are rejected for physical disability, after
completing their work on the campus,
will be given positions in the civilian
branch of the service, at salaries rnng
. ing from $1,000 to $1,200 n year.
Professor Jeremiah interprets this to
mean thait the government does not
propose to give civilian positions to
men who are physically capable of ren
dering active military service, but that
those who are rejected for physical
Teasons, will still be given a chiance to
“do theix bit.”

“If I Don’t Get War Bug and
Conditions Are Norma!
I’ll Be Back,” Says
Good Crowd Bids An Revoir to
Man Responsible for Cali
fornia Victory.
“1 f I don't got the war bug, and col
lege conditions are normal next year.
I’ll be back.” Such were the last
words of Conch Bezdek, spoken before
n crowd of rooters, faculty, and towns
people last night, just before he boarded
the rattler for California. A fair
crowd of rooters turned out to see Bez
dek off and show him that Oregon
really wants him back again next year.
Jimmie Sheehy, representing the stu
dent body, spoke of the past work done
by Conch Bezdek at Oregon. “We are
all links in a mighty Oregon,” said
Sheehy. “We aTe assembled here to
show our appreciation for the work that
Coach Bezdek has done. It is with the
deepest of regret that we have to let
Coach Bezdek leave us nt this time, we
want him all the time. And the only
condition under which we are letting him
leave us tonight is that he be with us
when school opens again next fall.”
President Campbell was called upon
by Sheehy to speak a few words. “We
are sending Coach Bezdek south to dem
onstrate once again that, in athletics at
lenst, the West is superior to the East,”
i said President Campbell. "Last year
| Coach Bezdek and the University of
Oregon eleven demonstrated that teams
representing civil life of the West,
were superior to teams representing
civil life of the East; this year Coach
Bezdek and the Marine team are going
to show that teams representing the
military body of the West are superior
to teams representing the military units
of the East. Wherever Coach Bezdek
goes, the hearts and best wishes of
every man and woman in the University
go with him.”
As the train approached, .Tames Sheehy
presented Coach Bezdek with the foot
ball that Steer’s carried for sixty yards
over California’s goal line.
On the football were the names of
every man who made his football “O”
I this year, and also those of Bill Hay
ward and Dean Walker. Inscribed on
the pigskin were the words "Oregon 21,
California 0.”
As the train carrying Conch Bezdek
and his family pulled out of the South
ern Pacific depot, the band struck up
“Mighty Oregon,” and the rooters gave
three chpers for Bezdek, until the train
had passed out of sight.
