Forms for Swimming Pool Ready
for Cement; Window Casings
Being Painted
Final Touches Are Expected Before
Spring Vacation, 1921, if
Nothing Hinders
Work on the women’s building has
been slowed up for some time through
lack of brick for the walls and piers
It is expected the shortage will be ov
ercome in time to take advantage of
the present good weather. In the
meantime work has been progressing
on other parts of the building. The
forms for the swimming pool at the
west end of the building are almost
ready for the cement. Workmen are
already busy on the window casings
for the main building and these are
being given a coat of paint to pro
tect them from the weather.
With the laying of girders for the
second V°°r on either end of the pres
ent framework the building is begin
ning to take on something of the ap
pearance of its expected size. By
spring vacation, 1921, if work pro
gresses satisfactorily Hendricks Hall
will have shaped into the appearance
of one of the many university an
nexes in comparison with it.
Karl Onthank, secretary to Presi
dent Campbell, says that subscrip
tions to the building fund are still
coming in. The latest reported is a
gift of $50 from the teachers of the
Lincoln high school of Portland.
The total amount up to date which
the students have raised and turned
in is $3,395.28
Portland class work, and other work
of the University in Portland, has
become so heavy that Colin V. Dy
ment, professor of journalism, has
been compelled to give up his weekly
teaching trips to the campus for the
remainder of the year.
Mr. Dyment’s class in trade journal
ism will be taken over by Dean Eric
W. Allen, and his class in newswrit
ing by Mr. Turnbull- In addition to
being professor of journalism, Mr.
Dyment handles executive details of
the University’s Portland Center. He
will also represent the University in
the millage campaign for the next
four months.

Causes Delay j
The opening date of the Tea Room,
on the race has been postponed until

the rooms.
The management of the Tea Room

hall which will accommodate about
35 couples. This room will be con
nected with the kitchen to facilitate
i the service on such occasions. The
lunch and dining rooms will be able
* to serve 75 people. A special feature
will be a room on the second floor of

Total of 98 Students Now on Proba
tion—Removal Petitions Refused
Only one students has been taken
off the probation list to date accord
ing to the committee in charge. It
was found, in this case, that an in
complete had been turned into the
Registrar’s office, instead of an S.
Many students have applied to have
their names removed from the list on
a wide variety of reasons, but their
petitions have been denied.
There are a total of 98 on the black

Committee InvestigatesExpense
of Campus Life; “Home
Check” Grows
Dormitories and Fraternity Houses
Hold Fees Low in View of Price
of Materials
Cost of living at the University of
Oregqn has increased about 42 per
cent over living expenses of 1915, ac
cording to approximate statistics
bj/ the student living committee. Dr.
J. F. Bovard, head of the Zoology de
partment and faculty member of the
student living committee claims that
four years ago, if a student had $35
for the month's expenses he did not
have to worry. This year the mini
mum is put at $50.00 a month, cover
ing, as nearly as can be estimated,
about the total monthly average.
The houses, including dormitories
and fraternity houses, have managed
to keep living expenses conspicuously
low in view of the increased cost of
materials. In 1915 and 1916 the av
erage cost per month averaged $25.
The cost this year fluctuates around
$33.00 as an average monthly cost to
each member of a house. Some of
the men’s houses in 1915 and 1916
ran as low as $24.00 per month to
the individual while $27.00 was about
the maximum.
House Managers Practice Economy
The reason that the houses have
been able^to fight the high cost of
living on such a close margin, accord
ing to Dr. Bovard, is that the house
managers are now more on the alert
than formerly for good buys and pay
more attention to planning the menu
in order that the best possible re
sults may be obtained at the least
expense. ,
To the students who are living with
private families in Eugene the ex
pense in most cases is higher than in
the clubs or houses. $30.00 is a min
imum for room and board with pri
vate families while in some cases as
high as $40.00 is asked, making a
bout $35.00 an average for the in
dividual living outside the houses or
clubs. In 1915-16 the cost to the
student outside the houses was about
on a par with those living in frater
nity houses or clubs.
Recreation Expenses Vary
No satisfactory estimate can be
made on the average spent by each
student for recreation. The figures
run from nothing to $50.00 per month
in extreme cases. The expenditures
of every student in the University
| vary from month to month and in a

Playing good ball in the first half,
the Willamette quintet held the lemon
yellow fiive to a 12 to 12 tally
in the initial period of the
game Saturday night but were unable
to keep up the pace in the last half
and were smothered under a 38 to 22
score when the final whistle was
The Methodists took the lead and
chalked up five points before Durno
hooped one, from then on the score
see-sawed back and forth until the
half ended. In the second half, Ore

maintained it throughout the remain
der of the contest. Durno and Lind
making baskets almost at will.
McKittrick is Speedy
The playing of McKettrick for the
visitors was a feature of the game
and the fast little guard was all over
the zoor for the visitors although he
failed to succeed in stopping Durno
from chalking up the usual number
of points. Durno found the hoop in
the second half and dropped them in
with almost monotonous regularity
Chapman played a fast game at guard
and was one of the mainstays of the
lemon-yellow team work which show
ed up to a big advantage during the
latter period in the contest. Latham
worked good at center and covered
the floor in fine shape, and Jacob

Ha! What Ho! Juniors Plot Vod-vill

’21 ers May Play Before Footlights
Well, the junior class is plot
ting against the rest of the stu
dent body again, and this time a
new idea is to be sprung on the
“unsuspecting public’’. Now it so
happens that the juniors, being
in their right mind and of sound I
judgment, are planning the big
gest of Junior Week-Ends for this
spring, and in order that this may
be, John Gamble, who conducts
highway robbery in the name of
class treasurer, arose from among
his co-workers and said that the
class needed more shekels.
Straightway did the class of
1921 get together and with their
analytical minds running rampant
decided that the gest way to fill
the coffers was to stage something
that would net an economic profit.
After much though the idea of
staging a junior vaudeville was
proposed. The more the plan
was discussed the better it be
came- Those possessing excep- j
tional imaginations began to se
lect talent and arrange the acts.
Now there are “Scotty” Strachan
and Carl Mautz, for a clever song
and dance skit; Sam Lehman and
somebody in an act that even they
don’t know what to call it, and a
few more like that.
So the junior class, through the
master mind of their “Prexy”,
appointed a sleuth to percolate
among the faculty and those high
er up and get the pulse, as it
were. One member of the faculty
ordered two tickets, another sug
gested an act or two, still another
offered to arrange for the date of
the production.
As for the date, no more can
be said than that the vaudeville
will proceed Junior Week-End; as
for the price, it will be popular;
as for the acts, wait until you see

Onthank Gets Copies of Resolution
Commending Football Team
Karl Onthank has just received a
number of copies of the resolution
passed by the recent session of the
legislature, commending the Oregon
team, for the game which was played

University to Print 1000 More Copies
This Year Than Last
A much larger number of Univer
sity catalogs will be printed this year
than last, and the plan is to have them
finished earlier. They will probably
be out pome time in April.
The number of catalogs printed last
year was insufficient, and they were
exhausted some time ago. The exact
number ordered this year is not
known, but it is estimated that there
will be 1000 more copies.

With a chance either to put the
lemon yellow well in the lead in the
Pacific Coast Conference basketball
championship race or to drop to a
i place from which it will be all but im
possible to rise, the Oregon varsity
five is now going through the hard
est training of the year in prepara
tion for the hardest week-end of the
entire schedule. The big campaign
will open Thursday night here when
Captain Lind will lead the varsity
five against the Washington State
hoopers. On Friday and Saturday
nights the University of Washington
five will form the opposition.
Particular interest centers about
the coming games as every coast team
is showing exceptional form and sev
eral of the teams are tied in the per
centage column.
California jumped into the lead of
the conference standing last night
when the bears took a 28 to 26 vic
tory away from the Washington State
five. The two teams will meet again
tonight in Berkeley and if old dame
dope puts her hand into the affair
as she has in the other conference
games of the season, W. S. C. will be
slated to win. No conference team
has succeeded in winning two straight
games in the two game series arrang
ed so far. Oregon and Washington
both won one and lost one in the two
day series arranged between the sun
dodgers and the Webfooters, as did
O. A. C. and Washington, Stanford
and Washington State.
Pullman learn fast
Washington State is in California
now. Coach Bohler has a fast team
and in the clash with Stanford both
teams played air tight ball each team
winning1 one game by small scores.
The W. S. C.-Oregon game will be
of double interest to local fans for
it will be the first chance to get a
line on the strength of the California
conference teams.
The University of Washington
quintet which plays here Friday and
Saturday night will meet the lemon
yellow five for the last time this
year. In the two games at Seattle
the honors were even and Washing
ton duplicated this, with the Aggies
last week. Coach “Shy” Huntington
says, “If the team is going good this
week. I think we should beat the
northerners here. They made a poor (
showing against the Aggies at Seattle
but we can tell little about that be
cause they used but one man in their
' lineup in these two games, that they
i used against us when we played them.”
Oregon In Fine Shape
“If we can win these three games
this week, things are going to look
pretty bright for us in the confer
ence,” Coach Huntington said this
