President Campbell Presents
Flan for Cadet Corps
c j Which Will Keep
; Men Here.
TO DEPEND MORE ON DRAFT
War Department Realizes Im
portance of Keeping Up
A portion of the United States army
will be trained at the University, if
plans, presented to the students by
President P. L. Campbell at assembly,
materialize. He stated that though the
reserve officers’ training corps may be
secured at any time, yet the University
would lose nothing by not taking it, and
if they had it the situation for the Uni
versity would be less effective.
The plan now is, he said, to organize
a cadet corps in the colleges, those stu
dents under 21 years being given the
honor of being allowed to volunteer.
They will thus belong to the army and
yet can complete their education, be
cause, if called in the draft when they
are old enough, they will be furloughed
until the college course is completed.
The government will put no restriction
on the courses to be chosen by these
men except a minimum amount of mili
tary science will be required. A we II
trained student, no matter what the
course taken, President Campbell said
army officials had found made the best
typos of officers.
Will Stop Volunteering.
“Supplementing this plan,-’ President
Campbell explained, "is the plan to cut
off all volunteering and dignify the
draft. The government assumes that all
are ready to answer the call to the
colors when it, comes. Practically all
the commissioners hereafter will come
through drafted men. It is the fair
and right thing to do.’’
Men getting commissions in the army
will get them on merit, he explained,
and a cadet can go up through the com
petition in the cadet corps for his com
mission, because examinations will be
given at the colleges for commissions.

U. Women Will Get Lectures on
Various Departments to Unite
in Giving’ Talks for Red
If there is a sufficient demand a
course of lectures for women to pre
pare them for practical work at home

cation, and psychology, and an official
representative oK, the northwestern
division of the Red Across will talk and
give practical field demonstrations dur
ing the last two weeks. \
■\Vhen the standards of giving of a
family are low. the purpose oNihe home
service committee is to rasie tmcm and
also to help reorganize where there\has
been disorganization due to exigencies
of the war.
_The home service committee of the
Red Cross also renders service to the
families of soldiers by supplying in
formation which could not be gained in
other ways. The only authentic report
of the men who were Inst on the Tus
cania came through the home service
eommittee, according to Miss Harriet
Thompson, who is interested ;n the or
ganization of the course on the campus.
Dr. De Busk will give a lecture on
child welfare; Miss Tingle, on the fam
ily budget, and nutrition versus cost; Dr.
Gilbert and Professor Crockatt will lec
ture on economic and sociological sub
jects; and Dr. Conklin on re-education.
No credit is offered for the course,
which is open to any women outside of
the University who wish to take it.
All names of those who desire to
register in the course should be handed
to Mrs. Mabel McClain, at the 1-brary.
I EIGHTEEN NEW STUDENTS
ENTER FOR SPRING TERM
Withdrawal of 70 From University Not
Unusual Under Present Condi
tions Says Officer.
The last lap of the current college
year opened Monday with 750 old stu
dents registered and IS new seekers
after knowledge added to the roll books.
This leaves a total falling off of ap
proximately 70, since last term's en
rollment was about S40.
These figures were given out Tues
day by Registrar A. R. Tiffany, and
are, according to his statement, about
what was expected by the faculty. Some
students who took out withdrawal cards
at the end of the term decided for va
rious reasons to return; others who ex
pected to return found it impossible to
do so, and this has left the balance
The office is satisfied, however, for
withdrawals were to be expected under
existing conditions, and new students
at this time of year are most unusual.
Most of them would rather work dur
ing the coming mouths and enter at
the beginning of next year.
Registration for the coming fall is
expected to be normal.
HANDBALL VICTORY TO BE
DECIDED BY GAME SOON
Oregon Club and Phi Gamma Delta Hold
Championships in First and
The games of the interfraternity
handball series have been finished with
the exception of the final championship
games. The championship of the first
division is held by the Oregon club,
and of the second division by Phi Gamma
Delta. It is probable that the final
championship games will be arranged
to be played early next week. Jimmy
Sheehy is out of the game at present
with an injured hand. Hey wood will be
The Oregon club team will be handi
capped in the finals, owing to the fact
that Hartley, one of their players, has
been drafted, and a substitute will have
to play in his place. In spite of this
fact, a close and interesting game is ex
pected, for there are a number of good
players from which to pick a substitute
to aid Springer, the other Oregon club
WOMEN MAY FINANCE HUT
U. Girls to Meet and Decide Upon Nurse)
Rest House in France.
A plea for the establishment in
France of a hostess hut for nurses by
University of Oregon women, will be
made at a woman’s mass meeting, to
be held a week from today in Villa rd,
with Dean Louise C. Ehrmann and Mrs.
Mable Holmes Parsons as chief speak
After an explanation of the plan, the
women will vote on a measure which
will provide that $2500, to cover cost
of building, equipping and maintaining
a hut for one year, be raised by individ
ual subscription from each woman stu
Dean Ehrmann hopes that every wo
man in the University will interest her
self and be, present. “There is a cry
ing need,” she said, “for these huts.
They provide a place of rest and re
laxation for nurses who require just
such a place in which to spend a few
hours before returning to the strenu
ous duties of the hospitals.
Helene Delano, president of Woman’s
league, says she believes the women
will give the plan an enthusiastic re
ception. "It is my opinion.” she sail,
“that this is one of the big opportuni
ties for aiding in the present war. All
subscriptions to the fund will be volun
tary. It has been suggested that each
girl obtain the money either through i
pei^onal saving, or earning the needed

He is also having some of his Somme

IS DOUBLE (WEST
Besides Race for “0's." Staff
Members Will Try for
$5 and $2.50 to Be Awarded by
Paper at End of Term;
Hard Work Urged.
A double contest among the members
of the news staff of the Emerald com
mences with this issue of the paper.
Besides the award of 13 "O’s” to staff
members making the best records for
the year, the Emerald will this term
conduct another contest for the benefit
of the reporters alone. A first prize
of .$5 and a second prize of .$11,30 will
be given to the reporters making the
fewest errors in their copy during the
entire term. The details of this con
test are to be explained at a meeting
of the staff some time this week.
In reality, the contest for t ho “O’s”
began with the first issue of the second
term. But with very little advantage to
the credit of any person yet evident, the
decision as to who will ge,t the pins will
rest largely upon the work none by
those competing for the awards during
the coming nine weeks.
‘‘Hard and consistent work is the
only thing that will insure the members
of the staff from disappointment when
the pins are given out at the Emerald
banquet,” said Harry Crain, the editor,
today. “The quality of the writing done
will, of course, count for something in
the final reckoning, but promptness and
accuracy are to be the two points most
insisted upon. Initiative in getting sto
ries and turning in ‘tips’ will also play
a large part in determining who shall
get the awards.
“Anyone who looks upon the Emerald
as a second consideration might as well
not try for a letter.” he said, “for it is
only those who are ‘on the job* and
looking out for the Emerald’s interest
every minute of the day who will get hv.
“The news editor has been instructed
to take no excuses. When a reporter
is assigned a story and does not make
good on it, the result will he a black •
mark. A definite time for every assign- i
ment to he turned in will he given, and
failure to got the story in at that time I
will mean the same as not getting it
in .at all.
Few Changes in Staff.
“As for members of the upper staff
who are competing for letters, they will
lie marked on what they fail to do. For
them to overlook a story, or to fail in
any other detail of their work, will he I
as serious as for a reporter to flunk
completely on three assignments.”
With the exception of the appoint
ment of Adelaide Lake as woman's
editor, and Douglas Mullarky, assistant
news editor, there will he no changes ,
in the personnel of the news staff this j
