Faculty Asked to Be Lenient
" About Back Work of
The-'Inf’nenza situation among the
men'-of the S. A. T. C. and O. T. C. was
touch better Monday, according to the
report* of the health office. Among the
women of the University more colds
were reported, but the office believes
this to be only a natural situation.
Only 160 men of the S. A. T. C.
were in Monday's sick report, a much
smaller number than have previously
reported. It was thought for a while
that it would be necessary to open a
third infirmary for the men, but the im
proved conditions yesterday and today
have relieved the situation.
Many of the women who have had the
giippe arc out now and tlr> majority of
the cases in the list yesterday were wo
ben who had light colds developing and
were kept in to prevent any further

“While it is the desire of everyone that

standard, the committee feels it is not
necessary for Faculty members to over
emphasise tin1 making up of back work

feel that the University should continue

for the best interests of the University

DRILL SHED FOR HOSPITAL
Plan to Old Structure Ap
proved by Lieut. Mct'eill.
Che old drill shed, situated just east
of the men's gymnasium, which was us
< d last year during rainy weather by
t!v i'eiversity Battalion and Training
camps, may lie convertd into a combined
hospital and dormitory for the Students'
Army Training Corps.
Lieitenant McNeill, inspector for the
S. A. T. I'., who visited headquarters
here Sunday, accordin'.; to Col. \Y. II. C.
Bowen, heartily approved of the plan.
His only objection to the S. A. T. C.
work on the campus was that the sick
men were not being properly quartered
and he oonsiderd this a very good solu
tion of the problem.
President Campbell also approves of
the plan. A contractor looked over the
ground Monday morning and will sub
mit his estimate within three days. If
the army headquarters at Washington,
)>. C., consider the plan worth financing
it will become a reality.
The building as the plan stands now,
1 according to Col. Bowen, is to include
dormitory, officers, quarters, dispensary,
and store room. The dormitory will
probably occupy the two ends and sides
of the building; the supply room, the
basement which will be lighted by elec
tricity only, and the officers’ quarters
will be upstairs.

of all company men.

No class! No class!
Their ears stick out and their toes turn
Their heads are rat and their legs are

As we pass, we pass.

The remainder of the' University’s sup

Stoddard, ’IT, asking Karl Onthank,
secretary • ■ President Campbell, if he

The men living so huddled together,
Mr. Stoddard writes, cannot take enough
precautions. The medieul officer, to
whom he spoke concerning placing such
posters was highly in favor of the plan.
In w’iiing for the posters, Mr. Stod

Too Much Talking Thus Far,
Says Librarian; Research
Work Falls Off
If the attendance in the library con
tinues to bo as largo ns it wns last Sun
day afternoon tlio library will bo open
on Sundays throughout the rest of tho
school year, according to Mrs. M. E.
McClain, circulation librarian.
There wore more than fifty students
in the library at one time last Sunday
afternoon, and many more than (hat
i'ame in and stayed a short time.
Some of the new students, Mrs] Mc
t’laiu says, talk and make a great
amount of noise but she does not criti
cise them severely because no library
regulations have been posted or an
nounced as yet, and the new students are
slow to believe that tin* upperclassmen
know where of they speak when they
say that quiet should be maintained in
The attendance in the library seems
to indicate that it will be used even
more'than last, year, “if that is possible’’
smiled Mrs.| McClain.
“The amount of research work is very
small compared to that done by the
students last year," said Mrs. McClain,
“but that may he due to the military
work that most of the men are taking.
"i have a new pamphlet on war work
for women, issued by the Information
1 >epartment of the Woman’s Council of
National Defense, which I wish all the
girls in the library could sec. It is di
vided into three parts. The first, part
classifies •all kinds of American service,
gives the qualifications, the salary and
tells where to get all information about
the different kinds of service. The sec
ond part of the book tells the same infor
mation about foreign service, while the
third part contains all information con
cerning training courses necessary to fit
a woman for war work, and where these
courses are given.”

Recovering slowly from the inroad*
inmlc by the Spanish influenza and th«
Multnomah Club, the University football
squad made a poor shwoiug nt practice
last night. Only five members of the
squad were out, entirely too small a
number to do any real work. There art
seventy-five suits out, and there should
he seventy-five men out on Kincaid every
night. If Conch “Shy” Huntington can
get that kind of support he will be able
,t.o turn out a team that will make Mult
nomah look sick when the return gnino
is played in Portland.
In speaking of Saturday's contest
Conch Huntington admitted that it was
a poor contest, but be is confident that
if the men will only turn out and work
lie cun give the Portland team a real
run for their money oil the date of the
next meeting. Huntiugtuo has no easy
row (o hoe to get the team in shape fot
the next game, which will probably not
be until a week from Saturday.
According to Graduate Manager Deux
H. Walker, “Tick” Mnlarkey’s Spnie«
Division team will probably be the
Varsity's next opposition. As O, A. C,
heat “Tick’s” team last Saturday, 7 to
0, this contest will give the dopcsters 4
chance to compare the' strength of Ore«

TRACK TURNOUT IS SMALL
Five Out cf Forty Men Signed Up. Re
port for Practice.
Five men reported for track prnctico
yesterday out of the forty who signed
up. Coach “Bill” Hayward is wonder*
iug how the men of the University dnn
expect him to turn out a successful
cross country team when such poor spirit
fs shown. However, he is taking into con
sideration the fact that many of the
men are in the infirmary, and that oth
ers cannot report regularly because of
the S. A. T. ('. work.
Bill Lyle, veteran cross country run
ner, is probably the most promising of
the men, and the brunt of the actual
work will fall on him. Richard Shisler,
another cross country man, is also ex*
pected to do much. He is at present
in the infirmary. The men are at pres
ent being given light workouts on tlifl
track, to fit them for the harder worl
later. Coach Hayward today issued an
other appeal for candidates. Not only
nil former trek men, but all men wh<)
are willing to work, are asked to report,
I’ractice is held on Monday, Wednesday
and Friday afternoons, with optional
practice on Saturday afternoon.
