Six of Seven Oregon Men in Legislature
With Party Today.
Six of the seven members of the legis
lature this year who are graduates or for
! m%r students of the University of Oregon
are on the campus today with the state
legislative party. William Gore, repre
sentative from Jackson county and a
member of the University hoard of re
gents. found it impossible to make the
trip this week-end.
The former Oregon men. in addition to
Mr. Gore, are: Senator F. H. Porter of
Linn county, and representative C. E.
Woodson of Morrow and Umatilla coun
ties, David M. Graham of Lane county,
K. K. Kubli of Multnomah county, L. E.
Bean of Lane county and Herbert Gor
don of Multnomah county.
According to Dean John Straub, fifty
per cent of the visitors on the campus
today are here for the first time, mak
ing this visit of particular value to the
University in that it gives to the state
through these leaders a closer contact
with Oregon.
! 150 Names on Waiting List for
Odd Jobs; Plenty of Work
Expected Soon.
| Between 00 and 70 per cent of the
! men registered in the University are
wholly or partially self-supporting, ac
cording to the estimate made by A. R.
Tiffany, University registrar today.
The labor situation has been greatly
| affected by the return of so many men
! from the army and the big demand for
student assistance which was encounter
ed last fall no longer exists at the pres
ent time. It is thought, however, that
' this competition will be gradually elim
j inatod and that with the coming of spring
i there will be plenty of odd jobs in the
line of gardening and planting.
The men’s employment bureau which is
operated by William P. Vance, student Y.
M. C. A., secretary on the campus, has
obtained much work for the men.
Through the efforts of this organiaztion,
29 men are almost entirely self-support
ing have received employment, while in
the neighborhood of 50 have been able
to get part time jobs. At present. Mr.
Vance says there are about 150 names
on the waiting list for odd jobs that may
come along at any time.
Joint Concert with Eugene Players at
Armory Planned.
Jack Dimdore was elected president of
the Men's Band at a meeting held Thurs
day night, and the following other offi
cers were chosen: Secretary, Lloyd Still,
manager, Earl Voorhies, and librarian,
Walter Wegner.
Plans for the near future are being
furthered to invite all players of Eu
gene to give a combined concert in the
armory with the University band, and
thereby giving the largest band concert
ever held in Eugene. Miss Eleanor Lee
of the School of Music has consented to
be the soloist at this occasion and there
will probably be others invited to take
part in the program.
The highest type of music is to be
studied, according to Mr. Albert Perfect,
director of the band.

Louis C. "Rosenberg. formerly assis

Oregonian Editor Recently Back
From France to Talk

Edgar B. Piper, managing editor of
The Oregonian, will speak to the student
body some time in the winter term. It is

front, the British navy and Ireland.
Before holding the position he now has
on The Oregonian Mr. Piper was man-/
aging editor of the Post-Iutelligeucer, of

given several talks on the war.

ative in the state legislature, is to speak

Robert Prosser, Ex-’16, to Re
turn to States in
Robert Prosser, ex-'l(>, who is a ser
geant in the United States ambulance
service with the Italian army, has re
ceived the Italian Pros de Ouerrea for
service of merit while on the Piave, ac
cording to a letter received from him by
his mother. Mrs. W. C. Prosser, of Eu
gene. Prosser is also wearing the gold
chovre for six months’ overseas duty,
the Italian service bar, the A. E. F. ser
vice bar and another bar given to ah
those in the third Italian army, the vic
torious army.
Prosser took part in the main drive on
the Piave. “We were'attached to the
third Italian army and started to work
at once," says his letter, “Many of the
machines were out 00 and 70 hours with
out a stop. No sleep and very little
chance to eat. Two more days followed
and we heard that the Italians and Eng
lish had succeeded in getting pontoons
across the Piave and had gone over. The
Italians lost 25 soldiers per foot on the
Piave and the English lost .“10 to every
25 feet.”
Cigarettes Bribe Colonel.
Prosser tells interestingly of a trip
across the Piave when he obtained per
mission to enter the forbidden territory
by giving the Italian colonel some United
States cigarettes. “I started out and
drove across the pontoon bridge. We
were the first Americans in this sector
and the American uniform stands ace
high and as far as the soldiers could
see us they yelled ‘Americano vivo 1’
Americano.’ Wo drove down the trench
es and started to return only to find
that we had crossed a one-way bridge.
I turned around, drove down the I’iave
about 10 miles, passed many villages all
wrecked. The roads were almost impos
sible to drive over because of shell holes.
I finally found a pontoon bridge and
crossed back to our side.”
The people of Italy are without ambi
tion, Prosser writes. ‘‘If they would
take some of the money in this country
that they spend on churches and put it
into' schools and playgrounds it might
be possible to imbue some ambition into
them. I would sum up the Italian people
by this: On entering one of the finest
cafes in Home you wijl see a sign on
the wall bearing the words, ‘Non Sputan’
-—‘Don’t spit on the flop.’ This tells the
Famous Cathedral Visited.
Prosser has visited St. Peters cathe
dral. visited’ the forum, saw the ruins
where Caesar was killed and where Cic
ero made bis famous speeches. lie has
also soon the coliseum where the Chris
tians were fed to the beasts. In Venice
he saw St. Marks cathedral, walked
along the canals and fed the pigeons.
He expects to sail for the United States
early in February. Prosser was a student
in the University in 1013-1014 and is a
member of the Phi Delta Theta frater

Philogians to be Reorganized and Com
petitive Club Formed.
Two debating elulis are to lie organized
in the University as soon as the present
doughnut league debuting contests are
completed. This is the plan of Robert
\Y. l’rescott, professor of public speak
ing. The old Philogiau society, reorgan
ized last term, is to be built up to its
old-time standard and a competitive so
ciety will be organized. The idea is for
the two societies to hold joint debate in
order that their members will become
used to public speaking.
There are about forty teams at pres
ent on the campus in the doughnut league,
besides the regular students of public
speaking. These societies will give those
who will be interested by the doughnut
debates a chance to develop this interest,
and will also be of great assistance in
developing inter-collegiate talent, says
