When the executive committee decided
a the first of the year that there would
be no Oregana the students themselves
hardly realized what this meant. But as
soon as peace was in sight, the committee
planned that activities would again be

most necessary. How to finance it was
tile next question, and that is why it is
going to lie put up to the students them
selves. They will have the chanee to

Colonel Leader is quite confident, of

BOYS OF 85m PLAY
Captain Bolton Hamble Back
From Front With Stories
of Artillery Men.
With news from the men in the 65tli
Artillery, Captain Bolton Hamble, mem
ber of the class of 1908. of the Univer
sity, arrived in Eugene yesterday morn
ing. Captain Hamble left France the
day the armistice was signed, and ar
rived in New York on Thanksgiving day.
Captain Hamble said that before he
left the front where the boys were they
had heard rumors that the armistice had
been signed and all along the line the
crack of rifles could be heard of the boys
celebrating. He said that they were per
fectly willing to give up the trip to
Berlin, if the destruction could stop.
Batteries C and E of the 65th Artil
lery are made up largely of Lane county
and University boys, who enlisted in sec
ond and third companies of the former
national guard located in Eugene before
they were taken to Fort Stevens for
their final training.
Proud of Boys of 65th.
“All the boys did mighty well,” Cau
tain Hamble said, “and I am proud of
every one of them. It is up to me to tell
what they did because when they come
back they will never tell how bravely
they stuck to their guns when they were
ready to drop from exhaustion.”
The work of the men in the artillery
has not the exeitiment that the dough
boys experience, he pointed out, for that
is one thing the men must not do, is get
excited, they must handle their guns in
a cool manner if their firing is to be of
value. There is practically no chance
for men in their kind of service to dis
tinguish themselves for bravery.
Taka Part in Five Offensives.
Though the second and third brigades
had been in five offensives, starting at
St. Mihiel, and under shell fire most of
that time yet tfiere was not a single
serious casualty in the 65th that Captain
Hamble knew about. Some who had been
with the regiment at first had become
separated from their regiment when they
had to go back to a hospital during an
illness and he did not know about them.
The 65tli handled 9.2 in guns or the
British Howitzers. These guns had been
made by America and sold to the Brit
ish and then bought back by America for
use in the United Staten army. They put
those guns where the British and French
said “impossible.” The 65th wan the only
American regiment which handled 9.2
guns to get into action on the battle front
before the armistice was signed.
Captain Hamble will take the place of
some French officer who has been in
structor in army camps over here.
.. STU BEN TS AT CAMP TAYLOR .
William Balstou, former Oregon stu
dent now training at Camp Zachary
Taylor has decided to remain, and pre
pare for a military career. William
Holmes, also at the camp, and a fresh
man in college expects to return to his
home in Baltimore, Maryland, as soon
ns released from the service. Henry
Eichkoff has had Spanish influenza since
his arrival at Camp Taylor. He will not
be discharged from the service until four
days after his release from thp camp

Retention of Membership in
The action of the student council in j
ruling against interstate trips from mn>
supporting activities, put the debate
council, which met Thursday evening in
Johnson hall, up against a stiff proposi
tion, according to the statement made
today by Robert W. Prescott, faculty
member of the council.
With the debate schedule for this year
seriously impaired by the action ef the
student council with regard to finances,
the debate council confronted the mat
ter of devising a new schedule for men
and women’s debate, which would give
a strong incentive to the students, and
which at the same time would co-operate
with the student council in its retrench
If there had not been a call for re
trenchment, the debate program for this
year would have been as follows: a dual
debate with O. A. C., a triangular men's
debate with the Universities of Wash
ington and British Columbia, a dual co
ed debate with the University of Wash
ington; while the oratorical schedule in
cluded Oregon’s representation at the
state oratorical contest, at the state pro
hibition oratorical league contest, and at
the interstate oratorical contest with the
University of Washington. As the mat
ter stands, it is the unanimous opinion of
the debate council that at least the date
for the O. A. C. debate should be kept
regardless of the small deficit incurred.
To Remain In Association.
The majority of the members of the
debate council also held that it would
be disastrous for the University to with
draw from the inter-collegiate Oratorical
association on account of financial mat
ters. The University is one of the charter
mem hers which helped to establish the
league twenty-five or thirty years ago,
along with O. A. C., Willamette, Pacific,
Albuny and Monmouth normal.
It will he remembered that Abe Ros
enberg, who was then a freshman, won
first place for Oregon last spring when
the association met at Salem. It was at
this time also, that Dwight Wilson was
made president of the organization, and
since he is in the service now, Ruth
Graham, a senior in the University, has
been named to succeed him.
Inasmuch as the president of the asso
ciation is an Oregon student, and in as
much ns the state oratorical contest is
scheduled to be held here on the second
Friday of March, it is the opinion of the
debate council that to continue active
embership in the Intercollegiate Ora
torical association is to continue the up
keep of Oregon tradition.
A committee comprised of Abe Ros
enberg, Marie Badura and Ruth Graham,
student members of the debate council,
has been appointed to take up the debate
situation with the student council at its
Ruth Graham and Marie Badura were
also appointed to take up the question
of inter-fraternal co-ed debate with the
houses on the campus. The women’s
houses had agreed last year to put out
teams, but on account of war work, a
decision was reached to postpone the
matter. The debate council believes that
this should be started immediately after
The debate league also took stops to
initiate interfratern.nl debate league wors
in January, as soon as the men get back
into their houses.
It will be remembered that the Fijis
have won the debate shield twice in suc
cession and that one more winning will
make it theirs permanently. From all
appearances it would seem that they are
going to have to fight for it.
CHANCE FOR JOURNALIST
The opportunity to attend one week of
the session of the state legislature at
Valera next January has been offered by
Eric TV. Allen, dean of the school of
Journalism, to one of the members of
the senior class in editing.
The plan, according to Mr. Allen, is
to hare one member of the class git. in
on one week’s session of the legiglatare
and send to the University bulletins of
the proceedings and happenings, jusrt as
a foreign correspondent would. This !
work will be counted as a thesis by Pro
“This would give the student -valua
ble experience,” said Professor Allen,
“and the only difference wonld be the
expense involved, «nd in the case of a
girl the question of chaperonage.”
The members of the class, when ques
tioned as to whether or not one of their
number would wish to carry out this
plan were enthusiastic, but none of them
have friends in Salem with whom they
could stay if they wont, and all being wo
men the question of chaperonagg must
be considered. They are to consider the
question and report their decisions later
to Professor Alien.
MAY TAKE MAGAZINES OUT
Student* Allowed to Carry Periodical*
Home for Perusual.
To meet the demand for more popular
magazines to take home from the library,
duplicate numbers of 10 or 12 of the
most interesting ones will be available for
circulation, beginning with the January
numbers, according to M. H. Douglass,
librarian. The magazines will be checked
out <m the same plnn used in checking
out books. The weekly numbers may be
kept ont one day and the monthly num
bers kept two days. Not more than one
magazine will be given to a student at
The plan of providing extra copies of
the most popular magnnhias for the stu
dents to take home is a trial and its con
tinuation depends upon its usefulness
and expense. The service will be main
tained with money obtained from fines
received from lest *nd overdue books.
Last year, $214.55 were received in fines.
December numbers of the following
magazines have been purchased and are
now on the selves near the desk and
students may borrow the copies by ap
plying at the desk: Scribners, ATorld’s
Work, Review of Reviews, Current Opin
ion and the Literary Digest.
The plan is to provide copies of the
following weeklies and monthlies: At
lantic, Harper’s, Scribners, Century, Re
view of Reviews, World’s Work, Current
Opinion, and Literary Digest.
