THE COLONIAL FETE*
A hang-over sentiment against, benefit
plays—a Bolsheviki fueling on the
campus resulting last month due to the
too frequent benefit cumpnigns for stu
dent activities and the Woman’s build
ing—is now Crowning upon tbe Colonial
This feeling among whnt is apparently
rt large percentage of tlio student body
is 11s unfortunate us it is uujust.
l'liuis for the Colonial Fete have been
under consideration for severnl weeks
nnd much preparation toward making it
u success lias been made by women of
the University. The pluus as now pro
gressing toward their filial form assure
an evening of real entertainment, for the
members of the student body fortunate
enough to attend—living tableaux of
Colonial people, u well prepared program
of entertainment in the Guild Hull
theatre, and dancing at lleudricks 11^
for the bulunce of the evening. Tickets
which will admit to all three places of j
eutorUiuiuiont are now being sold for j
fifty cents each. Certainly the students
are going to get their money’s worth—»
any ordinary date costs fully as much
while this is unusual, unusually good
and for a good purpose.
The Student body is not against bene
fits for the Woman’s building. It is only
against benefits which place too much
burden upon the students of Oregon, a
majority of whom are attending the
University on small allowances or work
ing their own way. The Colonial Fete
Is giwng good cuterUuunent at a oast
act exect- -i vo.
It in vitally lmpoortant, too, thnt the
students attend this entertainment os
Home sixty influential Portland people
are invited to visit the campus for this
event. They ore coming because they
are interested in the proposed Woman's
building and want to see the students
for which this building is to be built. If
some members of the student body boy
cott this entertainment, it is not simply
a matter of missing a good night w eu
joyment. It will give the visiting peo
ple who have been invited for severs’ !
weeks and looking forward to this event,
an unfair impression of the student
body and of the University,
assurance haa been given the Emerald,
that this will be the last benefit enter
tainment for the benefit fund until the
students have had at least a fair chance
to recuperate their private finances and
after this time the benefits will not be
planned in such rapid succession nor at
such prices as to inconvenience students
or to possibly prevent them from attend
ing certain events. It is unfortunate
that the Colonial Fete comes at the
end of such a period. But it is the last
although among the first planned. It is
up to Oregon students to muke good this
time. The Colonial Fete is important
for the University and is not bjyond
the reach of any student.
Ruling on Absences Requires
Prompt Attention by
No student may son his cuts at the
window at the Registrar's’office and all
cuts must be ‘excused directly through
the office of the Dean of Women or the
Dean of Men. This was the ruling made
by the committee appointed by the presi
dent t/ investigate the cut system of the
This ruling which went into effect to
day leaves the matter of excusing cuts
entirely in the hands of Dean Ehrmann
and Dean Straub. The student must go
to the dean's office, get the excuse
blank and fill it out, and then take it
back to the denri. The students will al
so be obliged to remember their cuts.
They have not been able to see their
cuts since Monday.
Absences prior to today, Feb. 21, must
be excused before the winter term is
over or they will be Ntnnd as a perma
nent unexeusod absences. Cuts made
after today must be excused within a
month or they will lie permanently un
excused. This will keep the matter up
to date, said Dr. A. E. Caswell, chair
man of the committee investigating the
cut system, and the student will get
Ids cuts attended to while they are still
fresh in his mind.
The notice given to the students reads

ROBERT EARL TELLS
Oregon Man has Lively Time;
Says Americans Had
Robert Earl, former University stu
dent, now with the American army in
France, has written of his experiences
during the war in a letter to his brother
Virgil, a copy of which has just been
received by Emma Wootton Hall, sec
retary for military affairs in the Uni
versity. His letter follows in part:
“On May 24 my squad and myself
were sitting in our little tent in Camp
Mills. At 6 o’clock we were told to have
our packs rolled at no later than 1 A. M.
At 1:30 A. M. the whistle blew. The
command fall in was given. We march
ed to a train, which was waiting three
miles away. We entered at three o’clock.
At 0 A. M. on the 25th we marched on
board the Cedric,
i “Shooting at Everything"
"We lay in port all day and all night.
The next morning at 8 :30 we pulled out
of New York harbor. Our convoy was
made tip a few hours later and by 2 :00
I’. M. we were out at sea. We were
shooting at everything all the way
across, but whether we hit anything I
cannot say. We landed in Liverpool,
England, twelve days later. We then
left on trains for Southampton, Eng
land- I might add that I was pretty
hungry, but we didn’t get much to eat
there. But after seeing the sarcifice
these people were making, we decided
we could go a few more daya on corned
beef and crackers.
“After we left Southampton where
ive stayed two days we sailed across
the English channel. Wre had a lively
trip. It was rough and the submarines
were, much in evidence. Wre landed in
La Havre, France. After a six-mile
hike we unslung packs and made a
camp for night. This was a boiling out
station, and, believe me, we needed it.
W'e had a good steam hath.
Traveled In Box Cars.
“The next morning we left this place,
in box cars lor the interior. Of course
we did not have the least idea where we
were going- These box cars had signs
on them, so many homines (men) ans
so many ehevaux (horses.) We travel
ed in these box curs and the higher ups
held clown perfectly good berths in the
coaches. After traveling for thirty-six
hours the train rolled into a place called
Mehune. It was a large base ammuni
tion depot. The next morning we were
out juggling ammunition of all kinds. We
kept this up night and day for five weeks
and then I broke my wrist, after wrench
ing it severely.”
After receiving his appointment at
Paris to the first army Mr. Earl was at
Chateau Thierry for a while and from
there reported for French utillery duty.
After finishing this work they started
advancing with the constant retreat of
Bombed Night and Day.
"FtM'e eu Tardeuois was our next
dump. We landed there the day after
the Hunt} evacuated. They left a few
traps, but not many as in other places
because they were completely swept
away and had very little time to gather
up supplies. In their hasty retreat they
left thousands of rounds of ammunition.
The big Bertha emplacement was also
found. It was a huge thing.
"We were bombed night and day in
this place with German light and heavy
artillery blazing upon us and important
roads near by. 1 have lost some good
friends in this game but it only added
to our hatred. This war was no place
for grand stand plays. War was being
carried on in a scientific and business
like way. Now that it is all over, I

realize more fully the seriousness. I
was helping supply some of our best
American divisions and I have seen the
boys at work. I am glad that I am
an American, because I never saw the
others display the fearlessness that our
men displayed- When our boys went
over the top they went- after eating a
good meal. In the hot weather they
shed their coats and overshirts. The
Huns knew they were coming and the
French and American artillery put over
a barrage that would take- the heart out
of the devil himself.
Clean Life is Led.
“Perhaps you would like to know how
the fellows in general felt. During the
war the fellows at the front wrere seri
ous. They were homesirtc, but deter
mined to stay to the end. Now they
are anxious to get home- The fellows
over here, I mean the majority, have led
a clean life, having profited by the ex
periences of the British and French
armies. Of course I cannot say they did
not drink wine for many of them did
It was often necessary, for the water
was poor and unhealthy. The fellows
will come back home better men than
when they came over.”
