First Student .to Turn In Fifty
Subscriptions Will Win
$5.00 Prize
Efforts Made to Put Drive Over in
Record Time — 1200 Names
Are you out for the prize in the
Oregana campaign? If so see Els
ton Ireland at once for tags, receipt
book and instructions, and be ready
for an early start on next Wednes
day, February 10.
“It’s the one that turns In the first
50 subscriptions who wins,” said
George Beggs, Oregana manager and
generalissimo of the drive, today
while explaining his plans. Five dol
lars cash and an Oregana goes to
the solicitor turning in the first 50
subscriptions; an Oregana to the sec
ond one to turn in 50 subscriptions;
and an Oregana to the first house
to go 100 per cent in the drive.
Far from feeling discouraged in
launching another campaign for
money close on the heels of so
many collection plate passings, Ire
land declares that .this one will be
put over in record time. In the first
place, he says, everyone recognizes
the true value of the Oregana as a
permanent possession, and knows
that it is money well spent. Other
campaigns have started money to
circulating, and more than that nave
demonstrated the most successful
methods, and have indicated the live
wire solicitors in the University.
Two Days to Complete Drive
“We are out for 1200 subscrip
tions,” said Ireland. “The Oregana
needs them, and we are going to do
our utmost to have it over in two
days. If possible we will close our
campaign Thursday evening.” He in
dicated that the prize winner would
have to be out early if they expect
to win
“They’ll have to keep mighty busy
and will have no time to waste,” he
said. “Let everyone have his $1.50
Wednesday morning and not spoil
anybody’s chances for tfie prize.”
The price this year is $4.50, but the
remaining $3.00 is not due until the
book is delivered.
Ireland says that he does not feel
in asking for Oregana subscriptions
from students that he is asking for
more than the support which is due
the publication, from each individual.
The Oregana is a student body pub
lication, issued solely for the bene
fit of the students. Each student
must own a copy to get his full
share of it, and he should look upon
the subscription committee as work
ing for him and taking a burden off
his shoulders.
Limited Number to be Printed
He pointed out too that the only
way to be sure of a copy of the year
book is to order in advance. Only
a limited number is printed, and
that number is not greatly in excess
of those ordered in advance.
Ireland intends to conduct the cam
paign largely on the plan recently
used for the Emerald. He feels that
a great deal depends upon the indi
vidual members of the committees
and has sought to find just the right
one to take charge of each house. It
is hoped to have every organization
go 100 per cent as soon as possible.
Two general committees are includ
ed, one to handle the campus, and
the other to take charge of the town.
Tags will be used, and a tag is
taken as the only valid excuse in
evading a solicitor- Those in charge
of the drive wish to make it dear
that any student is free to enter the
subscription contest whether he has
been named on a committee or not.
The naming of committees has only
been* to place responsibility and in
sure enough workers.

Veiled in mystery, is the stunt
which the freshmen members of the
Architecture club will put on at the
entertainment in the Art studio next
Wednesday night. The entertain
ment, known to the architects as the
Freshmen Frolic, is a stag affair
and will start at 8 o’clock in Profes
sor A. Schroff’s Art studio.
“About fifteen freshmen will ap
pear in the stunt,” stated Dean E.
F. Lawrence, head of the school of
architecture, “and they have been
working on it for some time so it
promises to be quite a stunt.” All
the members of the architecture club
are invited.
“We don't know what will happen
to the one girl in the class, Marian
Nicolai,” said Dean Lawrence, “as
this is to be a stag affair.”
Before the program, the problems
constructed by the student archi
tects, will be judged by Maurice
Whitehouse and A. E. Doyle, of Port
land. No prizes will be awarded at
this judging, it was announced and
only four or five of the best prob

Student Council and has also been
investigated by a faculty committee.
A committee was also appointed to
take into consideration the advisa

Many humorous and ridicu

Needless to say he was the only
person yelling. He was follow

Leith Abbott, as manager of the
famous pole vaulter, “Si” Starr,
created much laughter. He in

have stepped on the unshod feet

John Gamble gave a speech on
Sunday baseball playing at the

Lemon-Yellow Excelled In Teamwork
and Passing—Long Trip Has Little
Effect on Visitors
Oregon lost one of the closest, and
most exciting games ever played on
the home floor, to the Washington
State college basketball team Thurs
day evening, by of 29-27 score. The
game was full of thrill's, as it was
either team’s game until the last
whistle. Although the cougars had
just returned from a long southern
trip their team was in good condi
tion. Oregon was excelled by the
visitors in teamwork. Even so the
lemon-yellow outfit worked togeth
er better than at any time on the
home floor. The passing of the
Washington team was one of the
essentials of their victory.
Latham won the jump over King,
and the ball immediately went into
the visitor’s territory. After a num
ber of fruitless attempts by Ore
gon, Durno tallied the first score of
the game by one of his long shots.

Student Designs to be Criticized by

M. H. Whitehouse and A. E. Doyle
prominent Portland architects, will
be on the campus next Wednesday,
if the present plans of the architec
ture department mature, according
to Louis C. Rosenburg, instructor
in architectural design.
“The architects are coming to
judge the designs of students. It is
the policy of the department to have
outsiders judge • the merits of our
students’ work,” said Mr. Rosen
burg. “This eliminates any tend

toward pwticality to individual stu

criticise designs of cathedrals, monu

and bank and office buildings. Each
of these problems required from
three to four weeks’ work stated

Home Ouintet Draws First Blood
But Is Nosed Out In
Second Half
Team Shows Effect of Gruelling
Battle With W. S. C.
Hard luck, coupled with the ac
curate shooting of Jamieson, the
rangy center on the Washington five,
spelled defeat for the lemon-yellow
quintet in a ragged and loosely play
ed game last night in Hayward gym
nasium. Neither team played much
basket ball and not until the mid
dle of the last period did the team*
work or floor work measure up to
that of the game Thursday evening
with W. S- C. Oregon took the lead
from the jump and maintained it
throughout the first half and well
into the last period when Washing
ton, by a series of lucky shots by
Jamieson, pulled into the lead and
managed to keep it until the final
shot of the timer's gun.
Oregon arew nrsc Diooa wnen Man
erud hooped a free throw a few
momenta after the game started,
this was followed by a burst of
speed by the varsity, Chapman, Man
erud and Latham carrying the ball
down the floor where Latham shot
a pretty basket. Jamieson' scored
soon after this for the northerners,
while 'Manerud and Chapman carried
the ball down the floor, again for a
pretty basket by Chapman. Nichol
son scored a basket for the Wash
ington five on a pretty throw from
the side lines, and two free throws
scored by Cook completed the Wash
ington tallies during the first period.
Chapman and Manerud each scored
a basket from the field during the
remainder of the initial period and
Manerud converted another free
throw, the half ending with Oregon
on the long end of a 10 to 6 score.
Huntington Shifts Line-up
The Northerners led off with a
pretty basket by Talbot in the sec
ond half, Lind retaliated by hooping
a nice long one after which followed
a period of ragged playing on the
part of both teams. At this period

Campus Organizations Will Get Mail
at Johnson Hall
A new postoffice is now establish
ed in the corridor of the administra
tion building, for mail addressed to
the different organizations. A sep
arate box with the name of the
organization plainly written on it,
will hold all correspondence. Every
house will be represented, except
Friendly and Hendricks halls, which
receive their mail direct. It has
been suggested that one person be
appointed to get any mail which
might, be left.
This is beside the ppstoffice for
miscellaneous mail addressed to in
dividual students. This has been
moved inside, also. Around the first
of the week, circluars regarding the
campaign for the education appro
priation bill will be sent each house
on the campus. Students are asked
to send the circulars home or to
friends who may be interested.
