areas each into twenty-five sub areas,

sub-area can be under the command of
a graduate from the Oregon State O. ’
T. C. at the University of Oregon.
Each Area Supervised
Each area will be under the supervis
1 University and will be directly respon
sible to them. They will be inspected '
as constantly as possible by the mem
bers of the Oregon State O. T. C.

of the Oregon State Officers’ Training
Camp. There will be penalties inflict

Health Reports Required.
Those who do not hand in health re
ports are to be sought out, according to
the report of Captain John F., Bovard,
chairman of the campus health com
mittee. For those people who have no
means of reporting the condition of their
health as organizations, there are to be
health cards presented to them at their
morning classes. These are to be filled
out and handed to the professor in
charge of the class, or the person will
be traced down.
“It is absolutely essential that we know
the condition of every student’s health
in order that we may meet the inquiries
that come to us.” stated Captain Bo
vard. “We are trying to find the centers
of trouble so that we may stop the trou
ble at its source.”
It was announced that toe band nton
would stand the same chance as uther
men in the S- A. T. C.. when it. comes
to recommendations. Many have inquired
about this point before agreeing to sign
tip in the band work. President Campbell
assured those who wished to take up
the work that every chance v ill bn given
them to make good.

HELP ASKED FOR Y. W.C.A
Government Wants Hostess Houses Built
Hostess house advertising materials

“Put your dollars and your faith in
the girls in America’s great second line
of defense,” is the message on one of
these printed slips. “War calls women
and girls, as well ns men, into service,”
declares another. One folder contains
material answering the question, “What
is a hostess house?”
“In spite of this constructive attitude
toward the social life of the camp,”
says the pamphlet, “it is impossible for
the governiment to provide for such a
specialized need. It is therefore asking
the work council of the Young Women's
Christian Association to erect and con
duct hostess houses within or in the
immediate neighborhood of cantonments
which will serve as one center of home
life available to all men in the camps.”
