more hours in the day and cites as proof
positive that he needs more time than
there is, to accomplish his many and

Four Hours a Day."

Dean Walker leaves this afternoon for
Comp Zachary Tay'Jor after a service for
Oregon running through a period of six
years during whi< h time he demonstrated
eontainually his ability as a lender in the
University and his love of Oregon and
the Oregon Spirit. Especially duiing the
past two years, with the student body
j largely without upperclassmen, Walker
has been the big leader in keeping the
i new men close to the Oregon traditions
and perpetuating in the fast-changing
student body the old Oregon fight.
Beginning his career as uu Oregon
student by making his letter in football
the first fall, Walker continued through
his course of four years as a member
of all the \ arsity football and basket
ball teams in these years. Three times
he aided in the defeat of O. A. C. in
football. Mo games were played in his
junior year. Since Walker's graduation
in '111 lie bus continued to serve Oregon
well. He returned and served as gradu
ate manager during the year 191-4-15.
In 1910 Walker loft Ids business and
produced a winning freshman team for
Oregon in a two months stiny on the cam
pus. Again he returned to help Oregon
in the fall of 1917, serving as director
of intra-mural athletics and frosh coach.
This year, until his resignation was forc
ed that he might attend officers’ train
ing school, lie served ns graduate man
ager in addition to his other duties, and
all during the time was active in pro
motin'' the welfare and Oregon Spirit
in the student body.
Among the alumni of this University
who hove made glorious the name of
Oregon, Walker hnR made a record for
earnest service. When the was is ended
and the old Oregon men have returned,
Oregon Spirit he has helped so much to
foster during tire critical years will
demand that he, too, return to his work
for the lemon-yellow.

Last Year to Be Raised in
The raising of $G,600 is the goal set
by the committee in charge of the War
Work Drive on the campus, according
to Dr. A. E. Caswell, campus director.
This is a trifle more than twice as much
as was raised last year for the different
organizations. The committee, whose
members are representatives from the
Y. M. C. A.. Y. W. C. A„ faculty, alum

make a canvass of every student on the
campus and every faculty member.
A plan of voluntary subscription is to
be worked out whereby every person
may have an opportunity to make a sub
scription without being asked to pledge.
It is planned that there shall be a can

canvasssers in the barracks.
