Dean Walker Helps
Extra Eats Fund;
Others Get the Eats
Doan Walker was out of luck in be
ing assigned to a new battery at Camp
lay!or. It seems that the mess ser
geauts of the batteries since the open
ing of the camp had been economizing
as much as possible and laying up a re
serve fund for good eats.
AH of them had planned on the war
lasting for at least a year more. One of
the batteries, Walker says, had saved
up $0,000 for an eats fund. Then the
armistice was s igned and the men start
ed to cat up the $0,000. Turkey, fried
chicken, waffles, pigs’ feet, steaks of
all kinds, iec cream, candy, cakes, formed
the breakfast menu the first day.
When Dean loft the men were still
consuming that $6,000, but he didn’t get
even a taste himself, for, you see, he
was in a new battery which had no re
serve fund.

Local chapter of Beta Theta Pi was
found guilty of violating the rules of
the fraternity council by the decision
rendered yesterday by the tribunal, Dr.

Manerud and Wyndham Buren before the
completion of registration in October.
Charges were brought against Beta
fllheta Pi early in the year and the ca^e
was investigated and then referred ’to
the tribunal. The penalty given is pub
lication in three issues of the Emerald

first publication appears in another col

Special Music Program Prepared by Y.
W. for Wednesday.
A Christmas vesper service ns the last
Y. W. C. A- meeting before the holidays
has been planned by the association for
Wednesday afternoon. William Vance
is one of the speakers for the afternoon.
He will tell of “Christmas in Syria” as
be saw it.
A special musical program has been
prepared for the afternoon and will in
clude the following numbers: Violin solo
by Robert Louis Barron, of the school
of music; duet by Mrs. Minnie Johnson
and Beulah Keagy; solo by Laura Rand;
and a Finnish song by Ami Lagus.
Mabyl Weller will be the leader and will
preside over the meeting.
Pledge Money Received in Booth for
United War Work Fund.
Today was pay day. Money on pledg
es for the United War Work drive was
received all day at the booth in front of
the library by representatives from teams
1 and 2 of the women.
The men of the S. A. T. C. were not
included in the pay-day, however, unless
they had a source of funds other than
their regular government pay. for as yet
no one has received the pay due him
and will probably not receive it until he
is discharged. The men are expected to
pay as soon as possible.
First of Series Not to Be Held Until
Aftor Holidays.
The first vesper service, which was to
have been held on Sunday, December 15,
has been postponed until after Christ
inas, according to William F. Vance, sec
retary of the Y. M. C. A.. As David It.
Fort, national secretary of the Y. M. C.
A., is to be here for the opening service,
and the date of his coming is somewhat
uncertain, no announcement of the date
can be made at this time.
The renewal of the vesper services is
another indication of the return of nor
m -.1 conditi ns on the campus, as it is an
old custom of the University, and one
that the students want to keep alive.
Tired of Camp Life After End
of War; To Push intra
mural Sports.
Graduate Manager Dean IT. Walker,
who hag been for the past month attend
ing the artillery officers’ school at Camp
Zachary Taylor, returned to Eugene yes
terday and is hack on the job ready to
take up his work in the athletic depart
ment. Tne return of Walker gives the
athletic department three directors to
handle the work during the coming year.
They are “Bill” Hayward, who will han
dlethc basketball team; “Shy” Hunting
ton, who had charge of football this
fall, and Walker.
Walker is not certain just what branch
of the work will be given him, but he
has some fine plans stored up that he
wants to work, getting everyone out for
some athletic work. Intramural work
has been Walker’s hobby since he en
tered the athletic department, and from
the “pep” shown in the interfraternity
meeting yesterday afternoon, he has a
fine chance to get his plans into work
ing order.
Kentucky Climate Bad.
“I certaintly was glad to get back to
Oregon,” he said this morning. “You
, couldn’t have hired me to stay in Ken
tucky. I don’t think much of their cli
Walker enjoyed the camp life while
the war was on, but as soon as the ar
mistice was signed, he began to lose in
terest. The camp, he says, is remarkably
well organized and very efficient. It Is
the largest artillery training school in
the world.
“The work is systematically and thor
oughly done,” he said. “There is hard
physical ns well as mental work and a
man has to be in fine condition to stand
(he grind.” The army life agreed with
Walker, however, for he says that in
spite of the all-day work he gained
One of the things that impressed him
most at the camp were the negro sol
diers, cf whom there were many. “The
negro,” he says, “is a rotten soldier, until
lie begins to sing when he is marching.
There was one division of 200 men, all
negroes, who certainly could sing. We
could have negro opera of all kinds any
day we wanted free of charge.”
Returns With Mr. Piper.
Walker’s traveling companion on the
way back from Chicago was Edgar B.
Piper, editor of the Oregonian, who has
just returned from his trip to the battle
front in France. Mr. Piper told Dean
Walker that he saw John Clark Eurgard,
graduate i' the class of 1910 in a Lon
don hospital and that he was improving
Walker also saw Boy Andrews, as
sistant in the botany department here
last year, at Gamp Taylor. Andrews
will complete his course at the camp and
get his commission in about six weeks.
He has not decided what he will do after
Walker will probably go to Portland
this week-end with Professor II. C.
Howe, although this has not been decid
el upon as yet. to attend a meeting of
the Northwest conference. It is prob
nble that at this meeting the freshman
rule will again be put into effect and
that steps will be taken towards draw
ing up a basketball schedule. The resi
dence rule and other matters of impor
tance will be taken up bv the powers that
be and the Veturn to old intercollegiate
rules will be arranged for the year.

Oregon Man Fails to Roach Agreement
With Soldiers.
Coach “Shy” Huntington, of the Uni
versity of Oregon, will not take up the
| reins at Camp T* ir as was intimated in
; the Portland papers Sunday. “Shy” had
a little talk with Captain Cook, of Camp
Lewis, via long distance telephone yes
terday, and from the general tone of the
conversation the popular Oregon coach
will not journey north.
It would appear from Captain Cook’s
statement that things athletic arc not
running very smoothly at the cantonment.
Huntington would make a good man to
handle the Camp Lewis team. The camp
team is to meet the Mare Island marines
in San Francisco on Christmas day, and
on New Year’s will tangle with the Camp
Pike eleven.
Huntington was in Portland Saturday
and saw the Camp Lewis-Vancouver
game. According to “Shy,” the Vancou
ver team was swept off its feet during
the first few minutes of play, but after
the fihst quarter played the better game
o the two.
Blit Wife Sees Possibility of Necklace in
Silver Watch Chain.
| A sterling silver combination vest
I pocket knife and pencil with a harmon
izing watch chain attached came recent! v
to P. I’. Adams, professor of graphics in
the school of architecture. The niueh
prized article was presented by a stu
dent at last summer’s Officers’ Training
camp to whom Professor Adams guv
special work in trigonometry. This iua»
probably never realized what a bone of
contention the chain was going to be
come. Professor Adams says lie is in
constant fear of losing it, ns Mrs. Adams
! continually tries to wrest it front him:
i insisting that it would make a far better
I necklace than a watch chain.

Members of Faculty
Enjoy Afternoon of
Hockey in Thick Mud
Hockey its an out-door sport for mem
bers of the faculty had its beginning Sat
urday afternoon on the baseball diamond.
The spectators were few until near the
end of the game, when a group of small
boys, wearied with the football game go
ing on in the adjoining field crawled back
through the fence to see what was going
on in the other field where men and wo
men were running to and fro in great ex
citement and knocking at something with !
sticks. "Why. it’s shinny!” one little boy
exclaimed, and watched the game with
live interest.
Colonel Leader, once he got the ball in
front of his stick, would drive it down
the field at a great rate and the goal
keepers could rarely save the ball front
(. rossiug the line but too often the ball
went on the wrong side of the goal posts
to cause the score to mount up very rap
Miss Hazel Rankin, cnee she got the
ball in front of her stick would by short
strikes keep it near and away she would
go toward the south goal and Lieutenant
Zimmerman would in spite of great effort
often fail to stop her until the hall was
landed behind the line safely between the|
goal posts.
Lieutenant Thaoher played a good
game, his long strides after the hall pre
venting scores. Ensign \V. C. Heppen
hehner. rather more used to the billowing
waves than the mushy ground, persisted
in falling down when in it great hurry to
get his whack at the ball.
Members of the faculty and their
wives who played last Saturday are en
thusiastic about ihe sport and were all
planning on being there again this after
noon fur another game.
Durno, Brown, Hollenbeck Are
Other Officers; Doughnut
Rules Adopted
Inter-fraternity basketball plans are
going forward with a great deal of “pep”
and the men are showing their joy of get
ting back co the old order of things by
making plans for a great “Doughnut”
season next year. At a meeting held yes
terday afternoon in “Shy” Huntington's
office, over wlr'ch "Shy” presided as tem
porary ehninnm, officers for the year
were select si.
Jack Dundore was elected president,
Kddio D rno, vice-president, Alexander

Besides the election of officers at the

“Shy" Huntington are honorary mem
bers o' the eouneil and will be looked up
on to . imply fatherly advice when needed.
The working out of a schedule is now
in t'.'.e hands of a committee and every
thin;, will be ready to shove off by the
, of next term. It has not been de
■ . .as yet, whether there will be two
leagues or one. It is probable that two
leagues will be formed as there is hardly
time to play 45 games, which .would be
ntcessary if only one league was running,
"'lie games will probably be played in the
evening, as they were last year, and there
is a great deal of interest being shown
in the organization already.
The Salem library has arranged with
the University extension division for a
series of four lectures for next year. The
first will he given January 8, by l)r. J.
II. Gilbert, professor of economies, on

lecture is to be given by Dr. George Re

France.” No arrangements for the speak
ers or the dates have been decided for
the last two lectures of this series.
