formally Inaugurated and christened
Saturday, November 15, the Inaugural
services being held shortly before the
commencing of the Oregon-O.A.C.
game—the first contest to be played
on our new athletic grounds.
It Is necessary that our spdendld
now field have a fitting name. A
committee of student council mem
bers lias been appointed to work with
a committee of faculty members to
select a name but they need the sug
gestions and opinions of the mem
bers of the student body at large
in making the selection.
Shall the field be named after some
individual who has worked unceas
ingly In behalf of the University for
the past many years, or shall it be
given a title representing something
else which holds a meaning or sen
timent for our students?
Get together with the committee
and talk the matter over. The stu
dent council committee consists of
Lyle McCroskey, Ed Durno and Ella
Rawlings. The faculty committee is
headed by Prof. W. F. 0. Thacher.

That There Dance
In a flannel shirt that was glazed witl>
Each stude was feeling gay.
Short men and tall, boots, shoes and
Shimmied the time away.
White collars there, were very rare,
Yet one or two walked in—
But if one profits by the past,
They won’t be worn again.
Yes, maidens fair were everywhere,
In hiking boots and sweaters;
If football men got out alive
They sure deserved their letters.
The struggle ceased at 10 o’clock,
Too short, of course, but then,
’Tis soon that we beat Pullman—
And celebrate again.
Once Upon a Midnight Dreary
(Jp Eleventh street a maiden ran
Such speed was quite alarming;
Behind the miss a man sped up
To catch the maiden charming.
Ten blocks they made in nothing flat
The Springfield car they passed,
The motorman was much alarmed
To see his car outclassed.
I crouched to grab the villain^
His puffing frame to climb—
I start to leap—the maiden shrieks,
"Oh, good!—we’re in on time.”
Bashful Bertram Bays: They do
not study Sherman Clay In geology.
The member of the band who plays

A fellow is not a criminal If he
goes to court, unless he is courting
another fellow’s girl.

The scheduled Alpha Kappa Psi in
itiation speeches did not come off
this morning. The neophytes, al
though prepared in dress, manner
and forensics, were unavoidably de
tained inside of Deady hall, and
were unable to face the large crowd
of students, vegetables and historic
eggs which awaited them.
Bill Steers, Bas Williams and Spike
Leslie were the anticipated speaker^
The trio composed lengthy ard weigh
ty speeches on various commercial
subjects of the day, dressed in their
best clothes, marched about the cam
pus beating a drum to collect the
crowd, and then beat a hasty retreat
into the shelter of Deady hall.
Someone with an accurage aim
laid a barrage of rotten eggs and
ancient cabbages on the backs of
the neophytes. The speeches were
PLANS FOR SENIOR
SNAPPY AFFAIR TO BE HELD
Seniors’ Cynical Shindig — Men’s
Gym—November 21. Senior dignity
will be blasted. Stunts, fun and food
will abound. Woe to the man or
woman who dresses up. No dates;
every senior come; attend the Shin
dig functions for seniors only.
Such is the gist of the report of
the senior dance committee, headed
by Mike Harris, given yesterday after
noon at the class meeting in Villard
hall. Harris will have general charge
of and chief responsibility for the
affair, but he has appointed hard
working classmates to assist him,
Reception committee—Gladys Hark
ke (chairman), Ethel McGilchrist(
Lee Hulbert, Curt Peterson.
Music committee—Norman Phillips
(chairman), Chet Adams.
Stunts committee—Ike Ross (chair
man), Lyle McCroskey, Alys Sutton,
Food committee — Harold Brock j
chairman), Lindsay McArthur, Mar
jorie Kay, Clementina Cameron.
Publicity committee—Adelaide Lake
(chairman), Jack Dundore, Joy Jud
The various committees are already
at work. Ike Ross promises to pro
duce stunts superior to those of the;
April frolic. The food outfit re- j
commends that seniors do not eat
supper on the evenign of the 21st, for j
real food no refreshments, will be
forced upon the Cynics. Posters, in
box-car letters, will appear in the
The class also went on record as
favoring a confectionery desk at the
Y. M. C. A. hut, where candy and*
chewing tobacco might he readily ob-;
talned by students on the campus. A
treasurer’s report disclosed a bal

FACULTY TO HAVE PARTY
Get Acquainted Entertainment to be
in Y Hut Friday Evening
Speeches from new members of the j
faculty and musical numbers from 1
the recently added professors In the
school of music is the entertainment
planned for the faculty party Friday
evening in the Y. M. C. A. hut. Thq
purpose of this affair is twofold;
primarily of course, to get acquainted
with one another, since there are 25
additions to Oregon's teaching staff
tliis, year. Then, too, the board of
regents just voted to put a few more
sheckles in the moneybag each month
to help the pedagogues payroll along,
so they find this alone would be ex
cuse enough to celebrate.
Those responsible for the success
of the affair are Professor \Y. F. G.
Timelier, Mrs. Anna Landsbury Beck.
Mrs. K. K. OeOou. Mrs. Larremore
and Professor Robert W. Prescott.
"The party will be quite informal in
its nature^" stated Professor Thacher,
“and it is to be hoped that none of
the faculty will miss this opportunity
to get acquainted.”
The championship of the State
of Washington will be decided the
same day that the Oregon title will
be determined. The University of
Washington meets the W. S. C.
eleven in Spokane on November 15.
