SUPPORT THE LEMON PUNCH
Student activity at Oregon is tak-|
ing a new step this week. The lirst
toddling toward a new type of publl-j
cation will be taken under the aus-i
pices of the Emerald. For the present
and into the. future until the project
either fails or grows to such propor
tions as to become independent, the
larger paper will foster and nurse
The Lemon Punch—a lighter, smiling,
happy type of student paper, the sort
of an enterprise that may one day
develop into such a magazine as the
Harvard Lampoon, the California
Pelican, the Washington Sun Dodger.
Magazines of one sort and another
have previously existed at Oregon.
There was a Monthly. It failed, as
monthlies do because tlio University
was not large enough to support a
paper of the sort, because it had a
tendency to become “highbrow” un
less the editor was a person of more
than ordinary ability. It was too
staid, too sober, and of too limited a
circulation to live.
In li*17 the Oregon Spirit was is
sued as a supplement to the Emerald.
This sheet had a short lived exist
ence, its demise being brought about
by a number of causes. Answering
the clamor of a coterie on the campus
it became too literary. It could never
have become a typical student publi
cation because the nature of material
used opened its columns to ouly a
limited number of contributors. Then
tht> war interfered and the Spirit
The Lemon Punch is pregnant with
possibilities. Its scope should be so
wide as to offer to every Oregon stu
dent the opportunity to see the little
word children of his inspired moments
in print. It may not at first attain
the ideal wished for by the campus.
If not, it is the students’ part to aid
it, help it with their ideas and make
it a true organ of Oregonians. It is
an experiment an attempt to engen
der a new and needed type of student
paper. If it succeeds the way lies
open to new fame for the University,
pleasurable endeavor for (lie students
and an outlet for the wit and willing
ness of the whole University.
If it fails Oregon proves that, though
she may have attained the numbers
and something of the character of
the larger institutions of the country,
she lacks a certain dynamic interest
in humanity and human affairs.
That is what the Lemon Punch
must be, human. If it fails to achieve
this attribute, the Lemon Punch must

SIX MEN ARE ELECTED
AT EIRST TRYOUT FOR
Four Will Finally Be Chosen;
International and Coast
Work to Start Soon
At the first tryout for the state
triangular debate which is to be
held early in January with the Ore
gon Agricultural College, Reed col-1
lege and the university of Oregon,
six were elected for a series of try
outs which will finally eliminate two,
leaving four to participate in the
contest. Those elected were Kenneth
Armstrong, Ernest Hall, Ernest
Crockatt, Ralph Hoeber, Remey Cox,
and Elmer Pendell. This group of
six will be cut doMn to four as soon
as possible in order that the two
eliminated may start work on either
the coast or international debate.
The question is “Resolved: That
the principles of the Chinese exclu
sion act as now enforced should be
applied to all immigration for a per
iod of not less than five years.”
Since the coast debate and inter
national debate come about the same
time the possibilities are, according
to Professor R- W. Prescott, that
eight men will be selected for the
varsity debating squad this year.
The question up for discussion in
the coast debate with Stanford, 0.
A. C., and Washington is “Closed”
versus “open shop.” According to
Professor Prescott, “closed shop” is
a term used to denote certain indus
trial establishments that employ only
union men, while “open shop” refers
to those that do not cater to union
men but employ non-union men as
weli. The university uf Oregon has!
sent in the following phrasing of the
shop question to the secretary of the j
coast debating league at Stanford:
Resolved that the present movement
of employers for open shop should
receive the support of the general
public. The question as phrased will
be sent to each participant in the
league who will in tir n vote upon
their choice and remail it to the
seertary of the league.
So far ohly one student has shown
any interest in the oratorical contest,
according to Professor Prescott, and
lie argues that any one interested
should see him as soon as possible

Drama to be Put on December
5 and 6
“Real Things,” a four act drama j
of American life, will be presented
by the dramatic students of the uni
versity, at the Little theatre, in
Portland two nights, December 5-6.
The play was written by Mrs.
Mable Holmes Parsons, professor of
rhetoric, who last year taught on
the campus, and who is now doing
extension work in Portland. It will
be given under the auspices of her
The drama was originally written
for the $10,000 Winthrop-Ames con
test, but has never been produced.
"It will probably be given in Eugene
next quarter,” said Professor Reddie.
“It. would have been presented here
this term if a date could have been
obtained for it.”
There are five principal char
acters Durand, played by Claire
Keeney; Sawyer, by Professor Red-;
die; Jamie, by Alphonse Korn; Janet,
by Charlotte Panfield; and Martha,
by Emily Spaeth. The problems of
Janet Durand, who is very much
misunderstood, are worked out in!

UNIVERSITY HAS SERIOUS
EPIDEMIC OF ANNEXITUS
(Continued from page 1)
the school of journalism when the
extension department moved its sanc
tum to Oregon hall in 1916.
Friendly hall has a history all of
its own. By a series of annexations j
it grew from a men's and women’s j
hall of residence of limited accom- i
modations to a large men’s dorm, j
Originally the present entrance to
the Friendly dining room was the
back door. The present living room
was half kitchen and half dining
In 1902, President Campbell, who
had just become connected with the
university, was responsible for the
first permanent annex which includ
ed the present kitchen and large
dining room. The growth of the
university in 1912 forced additional
annexations and a $10,000 state ap- j
propriation was used for the con
struction of the east wing. During
the S. A. T- C. period the living j
room was again converted into a;
diner with such dire effects that the
money paid by the government for
the housing of the men was used
for this remodeling. This year the
outdoor boarders at Friendly have
become so numerous that a wooden
annex was built to the east dining!
room and a pastry kitchen added in
the form of a small brown wooden
addition to the main kitchen.
From the sound of crashing tim
ber to the shades of Rodin is the
evolution of the nameless “annex” in
the vicinity of the power house.
Originally designed as a timber test
ing laboratory, it was transformed’
into a studio by the late Roswell |
Dosch, professor of sculpture.
The athletic endeavors of the.
fairer sex in 1916 became so exten- j
sive that the annexitis again broke
out. Its symptoms were a fine roof
and rough floor called by the unas
suming, the woman’s outdoor gym.
Biulding inspectors thought so much
of the roof that they ordered the
pillars which supported it to be ad
ditionally strengthened in order to
make it safe for the rising democra
The annexitis bloomed forth in
the shape of another roof during the
S. A. T. C. period. The men needed
a place to drill unhampered by the
outbursts of Jupiter Pluvius. After
serving as a drill shed, the annex to
the east of the men’s gym was
floored, boarded on the sides and
christened the men’s uotdoor gym
Hendrick’s hall was originally an
annex. Mary Spiller hall for many
years was the only woman’s dormi
tory, but the demand for a suitable
residence for the women became so
strong that in 1917 Hendricks hall
materialized. Its proportions were
so large that Mary Spiller hall be
came the annex.
Historic Deady hall has long been
a victim of annex-mania. Its spaci
ous rooms were divided horizontally,
making six floors where but three
had stood before. The mezzanine
floors are being used for class rooms.
McClure hall, which houses the
university printshop, felt the symp
toms in the spring of 1918. The
printshop became crowded and the
students could not perform their
laboratory work without treading on
each others’ toes. The result was
that the composing room pushed its
way out of the building being shelt
ered by an “annexation,” the white
paint of which forms an add con
trast to the gray finish of the hall.
Even the R. O. T. C. barracks are
not immune. Shower baths are be
coming class rooms. Work of re
modeling a part of the building to
the east of the barracks for addi
tional space to acommodate the large
number of students is under way
A more substantial annex was
made to the library building in
1915. This addition, which conforms
to the architecture of the building,
houses the book stacks.
