YEARLINGS TO LEARN
Line of March Includes Seal,
Co-op, and “0” — To
Form at Library.
? All freshmen out for the Infant's
parade this afternoon at 4:1.1!
Such is the mandate of the class of
1921!, backed by a committee in charge
of the Frosh parade, which was ap
pointed at the meeting held yesterday
afternoon. “Tubby” Ingalls, Bob Shep
hard, Floyd Maxwell and Ilohart Bel
knap are arranging the details.
The parade forms in front of the*
Library at four fifteen. From there the
Frosli will he taken down Hello Lane to
kiss the seal in front of Villard Hall. The
parade will then proceed down Eleventh
to Alder, and along Alder to the Co-op
store where all yearlings who have not
already done so, will secure freshman
The Frosh will then be escorted down
lilth street to Willamette, north on Will
amette to the Rainbow, where special
stunts will take place. From there they
will lockstep up to the top of the “O”
on the top of Skinner’s butte.
“No rough stuff, but real stunts of a
worthwhile nature,” is the promise of
“Tubby” Ingalls, chairman of the com
mittee. AH freshmen are urged to turn
out, states Ingalls, as It is through the
Frosh parade that all new men are ac
quainted with the time honored Oregon
customs and traditions.
RIVALS.’ PAPERS COMING.
The faculty of the School of Journal
ism is pointing with pride these days to
the fact that both major political parties
aro running journalists for president.
Beau Eric W. Allen has made arrange
ments to follow the campaign “dope” in
the papers owned by both candidates.
The Marion Star, owned by Senator
Harding, and the Dayton Nows, publish-1
ed by Governor Cox, will soon be upon
the journalism exchange desk.

What’s the matter with the Sen
ior class barber? IIow does it hap
pen that only two or three male mem
bers of that class can exhibit a vis
ible lip piece? Can it be possible
that this high official is betraying
her trust to the class and to the pub
Several theories have been ad
vanced in explanation of this lack
of hirsute adornment. One of the
more plausible is that ye barber has
discovered that there is a greater
profit in selling shaves and safety
razors than there is in hair tonic
and moustache wax. Lyle Bryson,
the barber in question, is non-com
mittal in regard to this theory.
Inability to sprout a decent crop
of whiskers is another cause of the
shortage. Take Alex Brown for
instance. After his “hair-raising”
vacation solicitious friends told him
he had a smudge of coal dust or soot
on his face. Then there is the sad
case of Eddie Durno. His pride
and joy was so heavy that he could-,
n’t smile his wonted smile. Now it
is gone. Teewee Edwards had
whiskers of good length but unluck
ily enough they were of flesh color
and scarcely more visible than a coal
pile in the dark. They too have de
parted from this life.

FIVE FRAT HOUSES
MOVED THIS YEAR
iPi Phi, S. A. E., Bacherorcon, Zeta Rho
‘and S-Maralda Change Location.
Among the changes of interest about
the campus are those made by several of
the fraternities and sororities in house
locations. Other houses have made al
terations. Those having moved are the
Bnchelordons, who have drifted from
University street to ITilyard; the S. A.
E.’s from the corner of lfitli and Aider
to 14th and Alder, their former resi
dence being taken by the ?5eta Itho’s. a
girls’ local which was formed the latter
part of last year in Hendricks Hall; the
I’i Beta Phis who have moved from
Eleventh street to the corner of Four
teenth and AJder, across from the S. A.
E.’s. It was formerly the home of
Professor Frederick S. Dunn. The S
Maraldas have gone into the house oc
cupied by the Pi Phis last year.

Notice written in chalk on a small piece

ihe notices are undoubtedly the work
of Dr. Condon himself and as he has

How the board survived the years with
the notices intact is a problem for con
jecture. Professor Clark, of the Latin
department, was the one to call the
first attention to it. A workman in the
basement of Villard noticed it and spoke
to him about it. It was leaning against
a wall in a dark corner and its discovery
as an article of interest was largely ac
cidental. From there it was taken to
the Journalism Annex, where it is now
Dr. Condon came to the University in
187(5 as professor of geology and natural
history and remained with the school un
til early in the present century. Under
his able direction the department of
geology was founded and brought to its
present stage. The Condon Geological
Museum in the Administration building
is a gift from him to the University.
It is planned to preserve the board as
an object of historical interest and to
serve as a model for those janitors of
the present day who so ruthlessly erase
anything which it is desired to save.

the annual Open House for all University
women on the evening of October 1.

At Assembly Today
MME. ROSE M’GREW.
Madame Rose MeGrew, operatic
soprano, and a member of the fac
ulty of the School of Music, will sing
at the first assembly of the year to
be held in Villard ball at eleven
o’clock today. A quartet consist
ing of Madame McGrew, Laura
Kami, George Hopkins and Glen
Morrow is also on the program.
Professor John Stark Evans will
be in charge of music for the as
semblies this year.
Foundation Work Limited to
First Two Years.
Important changes in the School of
Commerce, which will require li'reshmen
and Sophomores to lake general courses
that provide a good foundation for spe
cialized commercial work, are announced
by Dean E. C. Bobbins. One of the
greatest handicaps with which tin: school
has had to contend, says Dean Robbins,
is that upper class students have not
fulfilled lower class requirements.
Junior and Senior courses will then
be made more-specific and specialized.
Instead of a general course in commerce
the department now requires that upper
division students select a special branch
of commerce work with the final view
in mind of becoming specialists and pro
fessional meu. Courses for specialization
will be offered in accounting, banking,
finance, foreign trade, labor manage
ment, general retail business and Cham
ber of Commerce secretaryship, instead
of the more general and specialized com
The department is greatly aided by
an almost doubled corps of instructors,
and arrangements are now under way to
keep sections and classes small enough
to give the students a more personal
supervision than was formerly afforded.
Plans are also under consideration that
will make tjie course extend over five
years in order to bring about a realiza
tion of the aim of the school, which is
to turn out' professional men who can
take special places of responsibility at
Under the able* leadership of Dr. Bob
bins who succeeds Dean Morton as Dean
of Commerce, the school is making rapid
advances in many ways and promises to
be one of the University’s greatest as
sets now and in the future.
TWO DAYS IS 1300

dents as having paid their registration
fees at the end of the Second day of reg

pletely registered as compared with 718

OPED HOUSE PUNS

Two or Three Nights May Be
Used by Men to Visit
i Women’s Groups. ’
FOR YEAR BY SAVAGE
Issuance of Printed Matter
For Students Use Now
to be Limited!.
Discussion of' problems confronting
tho Associated Students at the opening
of the year occupied the first meeting of
the student.council last night. Attend
ance at assemblies, suggestions for open
house to be held Saturday, and appoint
ment of a committee to authorize issu
ance of printed matter for use of stu
dents for which advertising is solicited
from fiugene merchants were important
A committee consisting of Vivian
Chandler and John Houston was appoint
ed by president Carlton Savage to con
sult with Deau Fox regarding arrange
ments for the annual open house sched
uled for Saturday night. The number of
sororities and annexes to the women’s
dormitory having been increased during
the past, year, members of the council
favored consulting Dean Fox in the
hopes of arranging a new plan whereby
men might be given more than one night
to visit all the women’s groups.
Two plans were suggested which will . ,
be discussed by the committee which \
will meet with Dean Fox today. Ontf, \
which seemed to be favored by the coun
cil, inasmuch as it permitted men to
meet all the organizations .>-111 two
groups, one visiting one-half of the wo
men's groups, and the other group vis
iting the remaining half of the women’s
houses. On another open date early this
term, a second open house wquld be
held when the men’s groups would visi^
the houses that were missed the first
time. “ 'v -
The second plan was to have1 open
house the first Saturday, of each term;
dividing men and women’s organiza
tions into three groups, one men’s group
visiting one women’s group each term.
Such a plan was objected to on the -
grounds that it wotdd not permit every,
member of the student body to become
acquainted with each other during the
first term. *
A motion to appoint a committee to
authorize all printed matter such as cal
endars, blotters, telephone directories
and student lists which are financed
through advertisements of Eugene mer
chants was passed by the council, and
a committee consisting of Raymond E.
Vester, chairman, Harry A. Smith and
Lyle Bryson was named by President
Savage to authorize all publication of
matter for the use of students.
Attendance of every student at as
semblies during the year was strongly
urged by President Savage. Assemblies
during the coming year are to be ield
down to exactly fifty minutes in length,
and none will run over into the noon hour
as in the past. A committee appointed
last term will recommend a list of as
sembly speakers to the University for
the year. Senior marshals will assist in
