Campaign to Last Two Days,
1200 Subscribers Needed
Among Students
Prizes Will Be Given to Canvassers
and Organizations as Incentive
to Boost Annual
“The Oregana drive over in two
•flays”, is the slogan of George Beggs,
business manager, and Elston Ire
land, circulation manager of the Uni
versity year book, in the campaign
for 1200 subscriptions from the stu
dent body which they are launching
tomorrow morning.
Every effort will be made to collect
the full quota of subscriptions be
fore Thursday night, and with that
end in view' members of committees
to carry on the canvass have been
chosen who httve proven their ability i
in former drives. Plans have been
laid to reach as many individuals
as possible through their organiza
tions but the hardy “hooverizer” who
ventures out upon the campus with
out an Oregana tag will find plenty
of workers waiting for him and ready
to take care of his money- As an
incentive toward fast work on the
part of the committee members,
prizes have been offered for the first
two who turn in 50 subscriptions.
Five dollars and an Oregana go to
the one reaching the goal first, and
an Oregana to the second person to
turn in that number. The organiza
tion which first reports its members
to be 100% Oregana subscribers will
get a free copy of the book.
Not to Juniors Alone
George Beggs emphasized the fact
that the Oregana is strictly a Uni
versity proposition, not that of the
junior class. As such he feels that
it deserves, and must have, the sup
port of each individual in the Uni
versity if it is to be an unqualified
Reports from members chosen to
serve on the committee, according to
Ireland, indicate that .they are enthu
siastic over prospects of success.
They feel in this case that they are
asking each student to buy some
thing which he really needs and de
sires, and that the price is some
thing which every one can meet.
From the committee’s point of view
their task is only to get the student
to be fair with himself, and all
argument on their part is only in
his behalf.
Tag for Each Subscriber
Ireland announces that students
who wish to save the time and in
convenience may have their checks
made out Wednesday morning pay
able to George Beggs, business man
ager. Only $1.50 is being collected
now as a guarantee on the book.
The remaining $3 is not due until
delivery of the book later in teh
spring. Each subscriber will be giv
en a receipt and an Oregana tag at
the time his subscription is taken.
Northwestern Schools Have Epidemic
in Hand Says Red Cross Man
Although reports from the surgeon
general of the United States public
health service shows that influenza
in a mild form is prevalent in prac
tically every community in the coun
try, colleges of the northwest have
had little trouble with the disease
so far, according to a report sent
President P. L. Campbell, by Earl
Kilpatrick, division manager of the
northwest division of the American
Red Cross.
The letter states that parents of
college students should be re-assured
that their sons and daughters will
be guarded as effectively and care
fully, as they would be at home
and asks that the University of
Oregon send in reports from time
to time, as to the health of the stu
dents here.

Students of the University will ac
tively participate in campaigning for
the millage tax appropriation soon
to be voted upon in Oregon. Stan
ford Anderson, president of the stu
dent body and Miss Charlie Fenton,
alumni secretary, have already chos
en the above persons to represent ev
ery house and organization on the
campus to work with the campaign
committe in Portland to bring to the
fore and advertise the millage tax
which is of so much importance to
the University. Don Newbury, chair
man of this committee has called a
meeting for 7:15 Wednesday even
ing in Dean Straub’s room, at which
President Campbell and Karl On
thank will explain to the students
of the committee exactly what this
bill is about so that each representa
tive will be able to go back to his
organization and explain to each
member the importance of this bill.
Each committee member will act as
campaign member in his house.
Miss Fenton places campaign lit
erature regularly in the pigeon holes
for each house in the entrance to
the Administration building, and each
representative is to either see to
getting this literature himself or ap
point a member of his group to get
its daily.
The latest literature placed in the
pigeon holes was a bulletin with
statistics showing the proportional
building investment per student in
the various colleges in the United
tates and on this list Oregon takes
her place near the bottom.
“This committee,** said Miss Fen
ton, “is to act as a regular student
organization on the campus.”
The students of the University are
not responding to the opportunity
for vaccination open to them, accord
ing to Dr. E. H. Sawyer of the Uni
versity infirmary. Forty of the
freshmen men have not Been vac-*
cinated, either here or in the army,
and this is a high average, he said.
No data concerning the freshmen
girls is available because they do
not indicate this on the registration
card, but the percentage of unvac
cinated is probably much larger than
for the boys.
“There will be cases of smallpox
in Oregon as long as the people re
fuse to be vaccinated,” said Dr.
Sawyer, “and the sooner they realize
this the better it will be for them.”
“There have been a few cases of
mild grippe on the campus,” said
the doctor, “-but these could- not be
called flu. It is the general opinion
among physicians that-there will be
no flu epidemic this year,” he con
tinued}* “and that when the records
are compiled for this year it will be
found that there have been no more
I deaths from grippe and so-called flu
than in any year previous to last.”
“I can see no reason why there
should be a ban placed on University
activities as there was last year,
because the disease which is appear
ing here is too mild to necessitate
any such action.”
Due to Shortage of Fundi, Order of
Books is to be Limited
Because of the shortage of fugds
in the University, it is announced at
! the University library that only
books very urgently needed in con
! nection with class work can be ord
ered for the students. This ruling
jhad to be made, according to M. H.
i Douglass, librarian, because of the
j inci%asing cost of boofce, togethei
with the inability of the University
| to increase the funds allowed foi
1 purchases.
As next Thursday is* Lincoln’s
birthday, an address on the martyred
president will be given at the as
sembly in Villard hall. Wallace Mc
Camant, a prominent Portland at
torney has promised to speak.
Mr. McCamant is a deep student of
Lincoln, and is considered an au
thority on his life. He has given
the same address, which he will give
here, several times at other places.
Those who have heard him, describe
him as a member of the old school,
a believer in real oratory, and one
who arouses intense interest in his
subject. Judge E. 0. Potter of this
city speaks highly of the man’s abil
ity as a lawyer and of his influence
as a speaker.
The prospective speaker is well
known in Masonic circles, and is al
so active in Republican politics. He
was a member of the supreme bench
but resigned about two years ago.
He is a graduate of Lafayette Col
lege, in Pennsylvania, and is a mem
ber of the Phi Delta Theta fratern
A special attraction of the as
sembly will be the appearance of the
University orchestra.

The Tabard Inn
Takes Bertram In
(Not by R. B.)
This is the way young Bertram
rants, so now I think I’ll take
a chance; for this young Bert
ram chap, you know, is a neo
phyte, and I can crow. He’s a
Sigma Upsilon elected “bee”,
and just between young Bert
ram and me, he’s got a stunt
he has to pull, until the old
boys get their full. On Wed
nesday morning young Bert will
wear, a smock that will make
girls tear their hair. It’s called
in Greek, or Siamese, a “Tab
ard” just pronounce it please.
Besides adorning the campus
with this, there’s something else
you must not miss. He’s going
to pack a Royal around, and look
around until he’s found a vacant
inch on the Library steps, where
he’ll pound out some jingling
This bashful lad must then
declaim the things he’s written
and remain, till something from
on high, you see, splashes down
on you and me. Oh, Bashful
Bertram, I envy you! I kinda
wish I were there too. At ten
a. m. I’ll stand and grin, while
you perform for Ye Tabard Inn
But now I guess I gotta quit,
or envy'll make Bert have a fit.
Ella Dews ’19 and Esther Furuset ’17
Teaching in High Schools
Miss Mabel Cummings, head of the
department of women’s physical
training, has just received a letter
from Ella Dews, a major in her de
partment and graduate with the
class of 1919, who has charge of the
physical training work in the Bend
high school and the women’s de
partment of the Bend Athletic as
sociation. In her letter Miss Dews
said that she was coaching a basket
ball league among the high school
girls and one among the women of
the town. Eight teams are entered
in the women’s league. Besides this
Miss Dews is taking posture tests
! and making records and bulletins
every month.
Another letter has lately been re
ceived by Miss Cummings from Es
ther Furuset, who was graduated in
1917 and is in charge of the physi
cal training department in the high
school at Anaheim, California. Miss
Furuset asked for plans for an up
to date gymnasium as Anaheim
high school is going to have a new
$160,000 building for the physical
training and domestic science de
partments. After her graduation
Miss Furuset was instructor for a
year and a half in gymnasium in
the California State hospital for In
“We can’t begin to supply the de
mand for teachers of physical train
ing,” said Miss Cummings.
Almack Writes on Reading Interests
of Junior High School Pupils
“The Reading Interests of Junior
High School Students” is the title
of an article by J. C. Almack, act
ing director of the extension division,
which appears in the last issue of
“The American Schoolmaster.” The
article gives special emphasis to his
tory, and relates a test given to dis
cover what influences children most
in choosing books, what^ kind of
books “appeal most -to" them, and
whether there is a difference be
tween the interests of boys and girls.
The replies to the question “What
historical character do you like
most?” varied from George Wash
ington to Charlie Chaplin.
The general conclusions which are
reached, state that “There is a de
mand for actuality in the reading
material, for truth, for ‘real life.
| The fairy tale period is past.” Also
“Text books do not satisfy the read
ling interests of junior high schoo
pupils. History, however, has al
i the elements that these pupils lik<
in their reading.”

With a great exhibition of Ore
gon fight, the varsity five staged a
comeback against the University of
Washington five Saturday night, and
defeated the northerners 23 to 20, af
ter two extra five minute periods
had been played to settle a tie score.
This victory gives Oregon one win
out of the three games played the
last week end and leaves the lemon
yellow with a conference standing
of .400.
Coach “Shy” Huntington used a
different lineup than he used earlier
in the season, as both Eddie Durno
and Nish Chapman were kept on the
bench until the last part of the
game. "Skeet” Manerud started the
game at the forward position, and
Francis Bellar took Chapman’s place
at guard.
First Half Ends in He
The first half was slow, neither
team seeming to have much of an
advantage, the period ending in a 10
to 10' tie. Oregon jumped in the
lead early in the second half, but
towards the last few minutes of the
game, the Sundodgers crawled up on
the varsity, when with the score
standing at a 18 to 18 tie, Coach*
Huntington sent in Durno and Chap
man. These two men held the Wash
ington tossers to no baskets but
failed to annex any points for the
The first five minutes also ended
in a tie, 29 to 20.
In the second extra period, Lind
threw a field basket, and Durno
cinched the game by garnering a
converted foul.
Munson aid Nicholson sta,rred for
the northerners, and Latham and
Lind for the varsity. Manerud con
verted all of six tries for fouls.
The lineup:
Washington (20) Oregon (22)
Jamieson (2) C. Latham (4)
Munson (8) F. Lind (8)
Talbot (2) F. Manerud(lO)
Nickolson (2) G. Bellar
Cook (6) G. Jacobberger
Referee: George Anderson. *
Substitutions: Oregon, Durno (3),
for Manerud, Chapman for Bellar.
Oregon’s chances for the Pacific
Coast championship seem to be stead
ily decreasing, and O. A. C ’s 31 to
10 victory over University of Wash
ington last night, served to dim the
lemon-yellow’s prospects. Next Fri
day and Saturday Uie Oregon baske
teers go to Corvallis for a two game
series with the agriculturists. The
chances for a victory do not look
very bright but never in the history
of the University have the sport fol
lowers given up hope, or quite fight
ing, until the cause is lost.
The Oregon team is at present
badly crippled, and will probably not
be in good shape by Friday night.
Eddie Durno is ill, and in poor con
