No order making regulation United States Army olive-drab
uniforms the required uniform for the University Battalion has
been issued and no such order will be issued until such time as
• it may be put into effect without working a hardship upon any
student financially unable to bear the expense. Such is the as
surance given by Colqnel Leader and his immediate staff to the
Emerald this morning in a conference growing out of the misun
derstanding in regard to a military order posted on the campus
last week.
Interpreted as the order was intended, and as Colonel Lead
er and his adjutant, Captain Allen, explained it this morning, it
is not only clearly in keeping with the established policy of the
— University—that of giving every consideration to the welfare of
the students—but it also dissolves the grounds upon which the
students and the Emerald were voicing a protest. The intent of
the order was entirely to keep before the men of the battalion the
fact that the regulation uniform would be required sometime in
the future and it is the desire of the military department to make
this as soon as possible. But, at no time has it been, or will it
be the intention of the department to make such a rule an arbi
trary one, working to the financial embarrassment of any stu
dent. Colonel Leader is especially desirous of making himself
plain on this subject and his sincerity in declaring his individual
Consideration for each and every one of the men is convincing
proof of his intention in causing such an order to be given.
The ground upon which the entire misunderstanding was
based was a section of the posted order reading to the effect
that an order would probably be issued in the spring making
the regulation Army uniform the official garb of the cadets. The
popular interpretation placed upon this was that the uniform was
to be made compulsory for all men at the time the order was is
sued. The intention of the order, however, according to Cap
tain Allen, was to bring before the men, at a time when many
would be purchasing new spring suits, the fact that the uniforms
were the approved uniform for members of the battalion and to
urge all of those who could afford to do so to purchase the khaki
instead of other suits. There was no intention of requiring those
men to purchase uniforms who could not afford to do so, or of
asking those who could not get their money's worth of wear out
of the uniform to buy them.
Operating upon the established fact that uniformity of dress
is one of the prime essentials to good morale in any military or
ganization, the military department is urging the men to secure
the regulation uniform as soon as possible and in this it has the
hearty co-operation of the students, the Student Council and the
Emerald. The regulation service uniform has an added value
particularly to an organization of college students; it is the most
economical form of dress they can wear. Purchased at a time
when the student was buying clothes for a school year the uni
form would bo the means of a saving in the long run and, in
many cases, in the initial expense.

Owing to the frequent changes of scene
the settings will consist principally of
colored curtains and lights to represent
interior and exterior. The settings are
under the direction of Cleonie Carroll
with Lillie Miller and Beatrice Thurston
assisting. Their problem will be to com
bine the necessarily simple elements at
their disposal to achieve the most artis

Scout Hits Telephone Pole.
After the strife, one member of the
battalion was seen on the campus wear
ing a bandage on his forehead. Inter
ested in the battle, he ran into a tele
phone pole. It was the only casualty.
One zealous corporal, anxious to obey
the advice of Colonel Leader that mem
bers of t£/ enemy’s forces be captured,
returned to his commander with a cap
tive, who proved to be a member of the
corporal’s own division.
Colonel Leader says that for an in
experienced battalion, the sham was well
executed. “Their nishejf,” said he,
“were excellent. The men really got
into the spirit of the fight very well.
Their information service, however, was
not extremely efficient, ns the patrols
frequently got so interestd in watching
the proceedings that they forgot to carry
the news t<> the commanders.”

The record-breaking number of dress
ings were made Thursday, when 820

T. G. Hendricks’ $500 Gift
Helps Furnish Girls’ Hall
The furnishings which help to make
the living room of Hendricks llsll so
attractive, were made possible through
a $500 gift from T. G. Hendricks, for
mer member of the University board of
regents, for whom the hull was named,
according to Mrs. George T. Gerlinger,
who is in Eugene attending the meet
ing of the board of regents, and visiting
Hendricks Hall.
The hall has been made just as beauti
ful and practical as possible, says Mrs.
Gerlinger, who believes that, since the
women of the University are to be the
home-makers of the next generation, the
correct standards should be maintained
during their college life. The greatest
expenditure was made lu furnishing the
kitchen, according to Mrs. Gerlinger,
and every effort has been put forth to
make it absolutely modern and sanitary,
as well as the rest of the house.
The Steinway grand piano for the liv
ing room has been ordered in Portland
and awaits the approval of Dr. Lands
bury. who will examine it while in Port
land this week-end. after which it vvili
be sent to Eugene.
While Mrs. Gerlinger is here this
week-end primarily for the meeting c
the board of regents, she is also aiding
the residents of the hall in placing re
cently-arrived articles of furniture :n
the living room. Mrs. Gerlinger was a
dinner guest at the hall this evening,
and afterward talked informally with the
girls on questions that have come up
since the opening of the new hall of
The question of the formal open-house
for the hall and of a dance which the
girls wish to give, were discussed at
this time. The probable date for open
house is next Friday, according to Dean
Fox, and the dance may be .given the
following night.
Last night Mrs. Gerlinger told some
of the history of the antique pieces of
furniture which she has secured for the
new residence. Among these pieces are
th little melodeon. found in a musty old
antique shop in California, an old-fash

shop in Portland, and an old rosewood
