Health Committee Guarding
Carefully Against Spread
of Contagion
Total Increase Friday Less
Than 30 Cases; Nothing
Serious Reported
With down town streets deserted as
far as college men are concerned, with
a'l meetings on the campus abandoned,
said with classes greatly reduced in num
ber, influenza is showing its influence
on campus life. But it is insofar as such
things are called off this week, that the
regular life may be resumed next week,
according to the campus health > ommittee,
which is headed by Dr. John 1*. Bovard.
i Friday's health report shows 204 cas
?s, an increase of less than 30 cases over
the previous day. The health committee
believes the additional number is due
not to a further spread of the influenza,
but to a more complete report.
“Things are well imeheck, and the doc
tors in charge are very much encour
aged,’’ sadi Dr. Bovard Saturday morn
Nothing Serious Expected
f No serious cases have been reported,
all being cases of colds and fevers held
well in check. Four infirmaries are now
equipped for use, but unless the number
of cases among the girls increase, the
new infirmary for women in back of the
[Women’s gymnasium will not be needed.
Those girls who are now in the Kincaid
infirmary will lie left there pntil they
are released, and will not be moved to
the new infirmary.
I Among the men 203 cases were re
ported Friday. Of this number, 104
were in the S. A. T. C. and 39 in the
O. T. C. The S. A. T. C. men were dis
tributed as follows: Mercy hospital 40,
Eugene hospital 2, S. A. T. C. infirmary
B5, Phi Delta Theta 11. at home 7, sick
in quarters 44. Twenty-five men re
ported in person at sick call. All these
eases are light ones, according to the
health report.
; 61 Women Sick
; Yesterday only 61 women were on the
sick lists. Hendricks Hall had 14 new
eases, making them a total of 30 cases.
Most of these girls are at the women’s
infirmary. At sorority houses nine new
cases were noted, distributed in this
way: IT Beta Phi 4, Delta Gamma 1,
Alpha I‘hi 1. Gamma Phi Beta 1, Chi
Omega 1, Delta Delta Delta 1.
Very little fear is manifest by au
thorities over the situation. All precau
tions are to be continued to prevent any
trouble, and the health committee hopes
to have all cases cured soon.
uampus unangea
Those people who have remained well
have found the campus a different place.
Class meetings scheduled for this week,
glee club tryouts, rallies, and even the
pajama parade have had to be given tsp
or postponed. Everything that has its
part in the normal college life with the
exception of classes has been given up.

Student Council Acts to Save Grass On
Borders of Campus Trails.
Students who have forgotten that the
trails on the campus are to be used and
axe not for decoration only will soon be
reminded of the fact by the appearance
of "Keep Off the Crass” signs. Such was
the decision made atja meeting of the
student council held Wednesday evening.
H. M. Fisher, superintendent of
grounds, has been asked by the council
to place the signs where the students
trill be sure to see them. The signs are

0. T. C. Attacks Foo at Spencer’s
Butte With No Casualties.
The Oregon State Officers’ Training
Camp worked out a military problem in
a field clay event, Friday afternoon.

advance guard, left the men's gymnasium
under the command of Lieut. Jacob
Ivainm at 2:00 pj m|, and the main body
composed of companies A, C, D, E. and
M, G, followed <>00 yds. behind the ad
vance guard. They turned to the right
around cemetery ridge, southwest to the
Rifle range and out Alder street to
Spencer’s Butte. The main body was
under the command of Lt. Iluelat.
Col. Leader says the problem was ex
traordinary in that there were no cas
ualties as in any of the former marches
when from 10 to 20 of the men would
become exhausted and have to drop out.
These are thou reported as deaths.
There was one slight casualty when one
of the men injured his knee.

Chancellor Elliott of Montana
Praises War Ac
Tht> University of Oregon is bring
beld tip to other colleges in the AVestby
Chancellor Edward S. Elliott. of the
University of Montana, head of the edu
cational section of the western depart
ment of the Students’ Army Training
Corps, as a model of what can be ac
complished along military lines by an
educational institution. Chancellor El
liott himself made this statement at a
luncheon tendered him at the Osburn
Hotel yesterday by President Campbell
and the military department of the Uni
l)r. Elliott had spent the morning in
specting the military plant of the Uni
versity. in the course of a tour of the
different colleges in his jurisdiction, lie
was taken over the campus by Persi
dent Campbell and viewed the barracks
under construction to accommodate S.
A. T. C. men who will come in larger
numbers after the end of the present
university term.
Commends Military Work
In his remarks at the luncheon after
ward, Chancellor Elliott expressed his
strong commendation of the military
work of the University of Oxegon,
The colleges have demonstrated in a
wonderful way. he said, their ability to
handle the multiplicity of details in the
organization of the S. A. T. C. They
have been able to make, as a rule, all
the arrangements necessary to put, the
organizations into working order. Tt
now remains to be seen, he concluded,
what they can do in a collegiate way for
the young men whose military training
they are handling so admirably.
Emphasize Intensive Work
Chancellor Elliott emphasized the nec
essity of the colleges doing intensive
work with the men and completely revo
lutionizing their courses of study. “The
colleges must give the men exactly what
they need to make them competent of
ficers,” ho said., “and they must do this
work in a very short time.”
Mr. Ellioctt went over the courses of
study offered here with President
Campbell. He is particularly anxious
that the course in War Aims be em
phasized. At his suggestion, members
of the faculty will assist Professor U.
C. Clark in the lecture work. Mr. El
liott said yesterday that this course is
of particular importance in that it
teaches the men soou to be officers, just
why we are at war, so that they can
convince the men under them beyond
the shadow of a doubt of the justifica
tion of our part in the conflict.
City Ed'tor Appoints Fivo Assistants

veteran reporters of last year’s Emerald
staff. The staff of assistants is to he
much larger, and members of the ele

The Emerald “O”, awarded last year
for the first time, to members of the ed
itorial and business staffs, who did sat
isfactory work on the paper throughout
the college year, will be given again this
year to those doing consistent work, on
recommendation by the editors. There
is an especial demand this year for men
to try out for the xeportorial staff,
since very few of last year’s men are
back. Anyone wishing to win a place on
the staff, is urged to call at the Emer

Mystery Even Deeper
Than Usual Pervades
Fraternity Circles
Mystery usually centers around a
Greek leter fraternity, but mystery in
the u-th dgree surrounds the actions of
one fraternity on the campus. It is
firmly believed that some medium must,
be among the chapter roll.
You se, it’s this way.
One day in front of a little, nay. tiny,
house that now serves as a meting place
for the dear brothers, was seen n. huge
table as large as the little house itself.
The table had been of normal size in
the fraternity house that was occupied
last year before 1'ncle Sam asked the
men to turn over their chapter houses
to hini, but now it was of ah-nh-ab
norrnal size.
Onlookers worried all day as to where
the table would be put in the house and
their dreams were troubled that night
by the vision of the big table standing
in front of the little house. In the
morning when 'they arose wan and
weary and hurried for another glimpse
of the puzzling sight, they were shock
ed beyond belief
The little house had evidently swal
lowed the table for no other trace of it
could be found The impossible had

and is now hack at Fort Stevens again.
“At Fort Monroe,” said Lieutenant
McDonald, “as T took instruction In
