The Y. M. C- A. hut will henceforth

will help place the campus on its nor

and correspondence room and all

C. men, the hut, under the same man
agement planned for it under the S. A.
T. O., will do that work for the college
men at Oregon next quarter and there
after. From the hut will also be car

possible before, the usual work of the

years before realizing. It is one of the
good things brought to Oregon by the

campus some of the things partly lost
by the S. A. T. C. Sometime in the

The question asked by Lieutenant Bert

student body, is worthy of consideration
by freshmen in the University who plan

WAR WORK PLEDGE
TO BE PAID DEC.
Booth to Be Established on the
Campus; Total Raised
A booth will be placed in the campus
December 10 to receive $3,593.50, Ore
gon's unpaid amount of ft total subscrip
tion of $5,000.95 to the United War
Work drive held during the week of
November 11 to 18.
This day was set apart after a con
ference between Miss Tirza Dinsdale,
state director of the campaign in the
colleges in Oregon, Dr. A. E. Caswell,
director of the campus campaign, and
Mr. William Vance, treasurer of the
campaign. A list of those who have not
paid their pledges will be at the booth
and every student is urged to appear and
pay his amount.
Figures show that only about one
fourth of the pledges have been paid up
to this time. A total amount of $1,597.25
bus been received and the committee is
anxious that Oregon’s pledged amount of
$5,000,05 will be paid wo that a com
plete report may be in soon after De
I comber 10. Last year Oregon led all the
j country in the per cent of paid gubscrip
! dons to the Friendship War Fund drive.
I “We do want Oregon to show that it
! makes good its pledges in this drive,”
said Miss Dinsdale this morning.
Volunteer Day was unh]ut in the col
lege.-- of the state, and Oregon sent in re
\ ports of pledges early to l’c rtland, Miss
D'usdule said. She expressed coufiden »
in the students, feeling sure that each
one would not allow December 10 to pass
without puy:ng bis pledge. iloweve
there are a few who have indicated in
ability to do so and their conditions will
be taken .nto consideration. Some of the
men in the S. A. T. C. will find it very
hard to pay their pledges, Mr. Vance
said, for they were depending on their al
lotment from the government. A longer
time will be given them to pay.
SPEAKERS IN BIG DEMAND
Community Institutes Being Held in
Place of County Sessions.
Bequests are being received by the
University extension division from dif
ferent parts of the state for lecturers
and speakers for community institutes,
which are being held this year in place
of the regular county institutes, accord
ing' to John C. Almaek, director of the
extension division. It was impossible to

Because of the time lost in schools
during the influenza epidemic, the st ite
superintendent of schools decided that
county institutes would not be held this
year. Community institutes are being held
on Saturdays instead. “The community
Institutes are not entirely a new thing,”
Mr. Almaek says, "but have been held

In previous years the extension divis
ion has furnished the county institutes
with lectures and speakers. This year,
with the numerous small community in
stitutes, this work lias been made more
difficult. Formerly, one person spoke
before 200 or 300 teachers but it is now
necessary to visit ten or twelve different
institutes. Owing to conflicting dates
of institutes, according to Mr. Almaek,
the extension division has not always

DR. SMITH DECLINES OFFER
Dr. "Warren D. Smith, professor of
geology In the University, has decided
to decline the recent offer made by John
W. Erskine, professor of English at Co
lumbia University and head of the board
of Y. M. C. A. overseas educational
work, to do educational work in France.
Dr. Smith feels that since the tnen are
coming back, he will have a greater
chance to be of asaitance right here at
home. He is of the opinion that most
of the men remaining overseas will be so
occupied with patrol duties that they will
not have much itme for educational pur
I Dr. Smith states furthermore that the
work offered him by the Y. M, C. A. is
ns yet not very well established, and, in
i so much as he is a geologist rather than
an organizer, he prefers to continue his
| work tu the University. Tin University,
tv lus opmic’i. is in the vieinitj Which
’’ in the future afford the greatest op
nity for geological research in this
c„. t ry.
Dr. Smith visited Europe several years
ago, and now that the war is over, he has
no desire to see what remains in the
I countries stricken by war

“So they are going to take this mat
ter of making the fraternities and their
men away from their fireplaces up to
the line at Friendly hall to eat every day?
I i’ll bet it is some of those women who
work in the kitchen now who want to
keep on in a crowd instead of going into
the houses because one of the boys told
me a month ago that one of the cooks
told him that she heard the dining rooms
of tne houses were not going to open up
any more as all the men were to always
be fed the same as they are now. Or
the University or President Campbell
maybe wants to use the equipment for
cafeterias the government made the Uni
versity buy or maybe there is some graft
someplace. I know the fraternity boys.
They have invited me over some Sun
days. And they didn’t eat off of oil
cloth and tin platters and sometimes
they looked up and said something or the
head of the table made them all quit and
sing some songs about Oregon and their
house. Now they don’t do anything but
hurry and you can’t wash your face be
cause the paper napkins get coffee spill
ed on them, can you? I .know, too, that
the men in the houses like lots of life.
They won’t think the University is back
on a normal basis as long as some wo
man can stand around and tell them to
cut it when they want to toss some
brown breud, which doesn’t have to be
forced on anybody any more because it is
the kind the Hoover ban has been taker,
off of, at some brother in the other end
of the long dining sauce. And anyway it
is a long way to walk from the houses
to the hull because the boys are never
at the library.

LIBRARY TO AID RESEARCH
Faculty Members Requested to Ask for
To make the library of greater service
to those using it, all faculty members
are requested, in a letter sent out by
M. H. Douglass, librarian, to report
promptly alt subjects of special mieie&i
to themselves or their students.
Miss Corabel Bien, reference librar
ian, examines all books, pamphlets, and
periodicals and often finds material of
current interest.. to the patrons. If a
record is at hand of material desired
by faculty ftiembers or students, an ef
fort will be made to notify those desir
ing it, when articles of special value are
Cards are being enclosed in the letter
to faculty members, ou which they are
requested to list the material in which
they are particularly interested. The li
brary staff is especially eager to receive
subjects for theses. If the material is not
in the University library, an effort will
be made to get it at the library of con
p■.< or the departmental libraries at
Washington. The library will aiso borrow
books from other libraries in order to
furnish every possible source for those
INFLUENZA BILL PILES UP
Drugs Alone Cost $600; Nursing $700;
Total Expense Undetermined.
Though the “flu” itself has become a
thing of the past, the bills come march
ing in, according to Dr. John F. Bovard, ]
chairman of the committee on student
health, who had charge of the anti-influ
enza campaign and is still busy guard
ing against a possible recurrence.
The full cost of the epidemic, in money,
to the students and to the University has
not yet been figured, Dr. Bovard said
yesterday, but some idea may be bad
from the size of one item. Drugs alone
cost approximately $600, bills for $478
of which are already in. The cost of the
nursing service, Dr. Bovard estimated,
was between $600 and $700. The girls
of Hendrick’s hall not taken to the in
firmary paid $135 for medicine alone. At
one time the physicians’ bills were run
ning $35 a day.
.Students taken to the infirmaries were
charged at the rate of $2 a day. It is Dr.
Bovard’s opinion that when all the bills
are in the sum received from this source
will be completely exhausted.
FLU DELAYS LECTURES
Two extension lectures scheduled to
be given this week have been postponed
because of an influenza epidemic. One
of the lectures was to have been given
Friday evening by Professor A. N. i
French, assistant professor of education,
before the teachers of Cottage Grove.
The other was scheduled for Saturday at
Ifalsey by John <'. Almack, director of
the University extension division, at a
local teachers’ institute.
