Whether or not Oregon is selected
to represent the west on New Year’s
day now remains to be determined
by the board of control of the Pasa
dena Tournament of Roses. The de
termination o’f this matter depends
on whether or not they are going to
choose the best of the coast to play
the annual classic.
That the Oregon team is champion
of the coast conference is now indis
putable as a result of the victory of
Washington over California on
Thanksgiving. The lemon-yellow has
a victory of 24-13 chalked against
the northern institution and as the i
two teams are tied in the percentage
column this fact alone is enough to j
determine the standing of the two
Oregon Awaits Decision.
“Oregon’s season is over, until
word is definitely heard announcing
who will play at Pasadena on New
Year's day,” Coach "Shy” Hunting
ton announced yesterday. “The var
sity returned from Portland as un
disputed coast champions after the
Thanksgiving day contests, and re
gardless of whether or not we are
selected to play in the south, this
cannot be disputed.’

Eastern Oregon to Hear University
Men Christmas Vacation
An eight-day tour through eastern
Oregon, beginning immediately after
the Christmas vacation, is being
planned by the Men’s Glee club.
They also plan a spring trip and one
small one, probably to Junction City,
before the tour begins.
The program is being planned by
Professor Lukken, head of the vocal
department of the school of music,
and director of the club, and is to
be divided into three sections. The
first part will consist of glee club
numbers and a few solos. The sec
ond part will be made up entirely
of negro minstrel selections such as
camp meeting songs. The third part
will contain musical stunts. The
club will give the same program in
Eugene immediately following their
return from the eastern Oregon tour.

Portland Man to Give Famous
Lecture “The Lure of the
Pacific Northwest”
Frank Branch Riley, an attorney |
of Portland, will give his famous:
lecture ‘‘The Lure of the Pacific |
Northwest,” at assembly on Thurs
day, December 4.
Mr. Riley brings with him, ac
cording to Karl Onthank, secretary
to President Campbell, one of the
finest collection of pictures of the
Northwest ever made and combines
with them a lecture which has been
gleaned from intimate acquaintance
with the scenes which he shows.
He is a delightful speaker and knows
the Northwest like a book. At pres
ent he is just returning from an
eastern trip in which he has given
his lecture before large audiences.
Organizations which have once
heard Mr- Riley have repeatedly
sought to have the lecture given
again. * He appeared last year at the
university of Oregon and his lecture
was voted the most interesting as
sembly number, Mr. Onthank said.
On Thursday evening Mr. Riley
will speak again and show his pic
tures at some downtown hall, prob
ably the Eugene Chamber of Com
merce. An admission fee of fifty
cents is to be charged at that time,
the proceeds of which are to go to
the women’s building.
The last assembly of the year on
Thursday, December 11, will be a
regular student body meeting. In
addition to routine business, the
Greater Oregon committee will set
forth plans for work in interesting
high school students in the univer
sity. Further plans to raise money
for the women’s building are also
to be brought up at that time.
Other Members of Music Faculty on
State Association Program
Dr. J. J. Landsbury, dean of the
University of Oregon school of music,
spoke on the subject of public school
music from a University standpoint,
at a meeting of the Oregon State
Music Teachers’ association held in
Portland during the Thanksgiving
holidays. The association met at the
Multnomah hotel, Friday and Satur
day. Present day music in the schools
was the subject under discussion.
Mrs. Jane Thacher and Rex Under
wood, both of the University school
of music, gave selections at the con
cert which was held Friday night of
the convention.
“The Lemon Punch”, With Bob
Case Editor, to be Medium'
for Student Writing
Saturday will^p mark the initial
appearance of a new publication on
the campus in the form of a literary
supplement to the regular edition of
the Emerald. The “Lemon Punch"
is the name selected for the new pub
lication. Bob Case has been ap-,
pointed editor.
The new literary magazine is the
result of a strong agitation among
literary and journalistic circles for
a publication devoted solely to the ■
literary talent on the campus. It is
intended that the new publication I
will sei-ve as a beginning for a new!
magazine which will rank with the
literary publications of other col
The project is heartily endorsed
by various members of the faculty.
“The new magazine will undoubted
ly supply a want on the campus,’’
said Professor George Turnbill, of the
school of journalism department. “We
have no adequate medium for the
expression of the students’ literary
talent. There is no good reason why
the publication cannot succeed.
There is plenty of material on the
Good Idea, Good Name, Good Men.
Prof. W. F. G. Thacher, who has
been in favor of a campus magazine
for a long time, said: “I like the
idea; I like the name; I like the edit
or. A good idea with a good name
and a good man to push it ought to
go, and go strong. Time has been
when the success of a punch de
pended upon the amount of ‘stick’
there was to it. I predict that the
success of the Punch will depend up
on the amount of stick-to-it there
is. The Lemon Punch is going to
require a lot of support from the
students. But then, that is what you
can always count on from Oregon
students: loyal support for any
worthy enterprise. Some day the
Lemon Punch will stand alone. Mean
while, all thanks to the Emerald for
fostering it.”
Dean Allen, of the school of jour
nalism, is an enthusiastic supporter
of the projected magazine. The
only way to find out whether a pub
lication of this kind would be suc
cessful, said Dean Allen, is to try it.
“If everybody helps and contribu
tions are numerous,** me said, "It
will succeed.”
Material Wide in Range.
The magazine will be devoted to

Annexitis Has Attacked Nearly Buildings On the
Campus; Friendly Hall Has Long List
of Indignities to Offer
Too many students—no place to
put them! All right—build another
This is the way the; University of
Oregon is caring for its steadily in
creasing attendance during the past
few years. Since the first attack of
annexitis on the campus in 1902
the practice of adding to the exist
ing buildings, rather than construct
ing new ones, has been in vogut.
Of late, the need of more room has
been so great that small additions
have sprung up on the campus like
the proverbial mushroom.
At first, substantial additions
were built to the buildings, but the
practice has now become so general
that numerous wooden shanties,
brown, red, white, or as in the case
of the women’s outdoor gym, as
nature left them, cause the visitor
to gaze with the mental query of
“How do they get that way?”
The first frame annex was built
in 1914. Its unimposing architucture
was the result of the failure of an
appropriation bill in the legislature
and the consequent lack of funds
for the construction of the much
needed new buildings. This building,
known as the Journalism annex,, is
situated at the rear of McClure hall
For a time it bore the name of
Parkinson hall. It received ilie
title in derision of one Parkinson
who was responsible for the refer
endum that defeated the 1914 build
ing appropriation bill. Even the
fates were defied, for a fire a few!
years later only succeeded in ruining -
the roof of the building, which was
given a new lid, a coat of paint and |
a new title. The Journalism annex;
was originally built as office for the1
extension division, but was willed to i

O. A. C. will be out for blood in j
reparation for the defeat handed j
them in the first game during Home
coming week, and a regular exhibi
tion of the Scottish pastime should
be witnessed.
Stamps Will Be Offered Students at
Thursday Assembly
Everyone should bring his pennies
to the Thursday assembly, at Villard
hall. There will be a sale of Red
Cross seals, and as there will be no’
drive of any kind, and this is abso
lutely the only time when the stamps
can be secured, it is urgent that
everyone buy. So, Miss Elizabeth
Fox, Who with Mrs. P. L. Campbell
is in charge of the seals, asks each
student to come to the assembly and
bring some money with him. The
stamps are a penny each, and Miss
Fox suggests that if each person on
the campus buys at least five, a con
siderable amojint will be made.
The sale is to be conducted after
the assembly hour. A table will be
placed at each entrance to the build
ing, and several will be appointed
by Miss Fox to have charge.

Some day, as soon as financial cir
cumstances permit, the girls of the
department of household arts will
have a practice house in which to
get some actual experience rather
than mere theory and not much prac
tice, which the course necessarily
consists of at the present time. The
girls are planning for their house now
and all of the classes in the depart
ment are busily engaged in making
a hope chest for the house when it
is secured. Doilies, towels, napkins
and linens are being made by the stu
dents, and Mrs. P. L. Campbell has
donated some embroidered towels and
other linen pieces to the chest. The
home decoration class is making rugs
and table linen as their donation.
Next term classes have not been de
finitely. planned for the department as
yet, according to Miss Lilian Tingle,
head of the department of household
arts, and definite announcements can
not bo made now, but the food econ
omics class which is now studying
foods for children will be continued
no doubt, and the adolescent period
will be studied.
In the course on housewifery the
renovation of furniture is being taken
up and actual practice of making over
old furniture has been done by the
In the sewing department garments
of all sorts are being made, but most
of the girls are working on blouses
and underwear.
