Say “HELLO!” VOLUME XXII. Oregon Daily Emerald UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, OREGON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER I, 1920. Say ‘‘HELLO!” NUMBER 3 UN? H SHOULD WORRY; PEERAGE IS REEKING WITH PEP Men of ’24 Kiss Oregon Seal With Reverence and Little Persuasion BANDON LAD GOES FOR REAL SALT WATER DIP Yearlings Taught University Traditions; Infants Drink Much Milk. What's. a littln rain, that it should in terfere with a Frosh Pceradc? The usual dpwnpour yesterday, ex pected and traditional, discouraged the Frosh as it might have done so many ducks. The leaky clouds were the only dark feature of the occasion. The parade started off in the usual manner with bare knees and coats turned inside out, and the Frosh lockstepped over to the seal where they were given the privilege of kissing the spot “that is as dean' to the University as the flag is to the United States.” Here to the sur prise of many the promise of'last year’s Frosh class was lived nT> to and very little paddling was noticed by the crowd that had gathered along the cement walk. On the way to town a number of the freshmen were paddled, but on the whole the clubs were conspicuous by their absence. Downtown the committee proved that tilings could be done differently from formerly. Although there were water I lags n-nlent^jidjfr-yjjpfc .-aJjundaiftaj^ , shaking Frosh, the real feutiye was a /fancy dive by a young man from ltan don. He had appeared in a brilliant bathing suit for the occasion but liud not expected to take a swin in a big ice cream tub. Two freshmen from La iCfrumle and Klamath Falls delighted the crowd with a milk-drinking contest from baby bot tles, but a well directed water bag forced the contest to a close and it was not de cided which town was victorious. Yells and songs were also rendered from quiv ering lips but those Sophomore water bags were always more than welcome to the performing Frosh for they allowed him to make his escape. Of course last night at the dinner fables the Sophomore men and ''upper class men told all aboilt how it had been different when they were Freshmen, but then that was expected and now Dean Straub's “best Freshman Class in His tory” is well on its way at the Univer sity. Rhodes Scholarship Granted To Oregon Graduate Philosophy Is Major Subject; Course Will Mean Three Years Study Abroad.

Mileage Record I *—-* .Tust ns tin- memories of the records of the Olympic games arc f-.iding from our minds, along comes a man who claims the amateur world’s record for mileage between Eugene and Portland1. A total of 1 (i.St>2 miles is claimed for this event by Carlton K. Logan, a senior in the University. During the past, summer Logan assist ed the Oregon Electric to smash baggage on the Portland-Eugene run. With each successive trip the miles mounted up un til at the end of the season the total looks like a statement of the distance from here to the moon. Logan’s travels have not been confined to local expeditions. During tlie last year and a. half lie lias crossed the At lantic. gone across the United States, and made numerous side trips. The total distance traveled in this period is* esti mated by him at about 110,000 miles and ,before the present year expires lie hopes to raise it to .15.000. It is ‘rumored that the bulk of this additional mileage will be made on a Fairmount streetcar. * KUE, WIT TEH.

I’.v some the exception is omitted. The Seattle tenor \$il! lie at the time of the concert, on his way to New York and other eastern points, where he will sing extensively. His Eugene concert, has been made by a very special arrangement through his personal friendship with Professor John Stark Evans of the School of Music. Then Ivarle has a high, very dear tenor voice of unusual quality. Another quality which makes his singing of such high standing is that of liis clear and distinct diction and enunciation. Tlieo Earle is a largo man. tali in stature, and has the personality of a big. snappy and true- American. During war times, lie served as sergeant at Camp Lewis, in the same company with Mr. Evans and through Mr. Evans’ testimony. Tlieo Ivarle could “lick the whole company.” Opportunity to hear the concert is to he offered everyone as arrangements are being made to hold it on the campus. Tt is hoped, that it will he possible to se cure the Women’s Building auditorium for it. but definite arrangements will he announced later. In the hope of a very large patronage, prices have been kept down to one dollar plus war tax. This arrangement makes it a true campus activity demanding entire campus sup port. Then Earle's program lias not vet been announced and will appear during the next two weeks. Ticket 'arrange ments will also lie made known through the Emerald columns in the near future.

Coach Huntington and his staff arc not losing any time on account of the rain, and with only a baire three weeks be tween now and the opening of the con ference, every moment of practice counts. “Tiny” Shields, the husky tackle on I the frosh squad last year returned to [the campus yesterday from the harvest i fields of eastern Oregon and was out in I a suit last night for the first time. “Tiny” will no doubt, be a strong con tender for a tackle position on the varsity this fall. “Flop” Johnson, an other membgr of the frosh eleven last ! year, turned out in a suit last night for I the first .time. Johnson played a good game for the frosh at center and will | be an aspirant for that position on the j -' Tjttlc Information is being given out at training quarters so far nrt<T“Tmrd work is the order of events on Hunting ton’s program.

CIS' ATHLETICS SOON TO BE HOUSED « Physical Education Will Be in New Quarters The women’s physical education de partment will be installed in its new quarters in the Woman’s building by the close of the sport season, according to Miss (Mabel 4L. Cummings, head of that department. There, more than four times the present floor space now occu pied will be available. The department of physical education for women has for the past several years been housed in quarters which were considered too small. This year, with prospects of a larger enrollment, the equipment is much more inadequate, said Miss Cummings. The old outdoor gymnasium is undergo ing a course of reconstruction at present. When completed it will house several of fices and ♦class rooms. However, in spite of the limited space at first, the members of the staff are greatly en couraged by the sight of the new build ing nearing completion, said Miss Cum mings. and are looking forward to a very profitable year. The members of the staff this year in* elude Miss Cummings, head of the de partment, Miss Harriet Thompson, Miss Catharine Winslow and Miss Emma Waterman. Miss Laura McAllester, for merly nf the Emma Willard School. Troy, Xew York, is a now member of this year’s staff. Miss McAllester is a graduate of the department of hygiene and physical edu cation at Wellesley and has had gradu ate work at Wellesley and in Boston clinks. She will have charge of correc tive and remedial exercises, orthopedic work and individual hygiene. Her classes will include Senior Major work in cor rective and remedial exercises. All Are Urged to Realize New Obligations For Service to State. OREGON DEMOCRACY LAUDED BY SAVAGE Villard Hall Is Filled to Lim it in Initial Assembly of This Year. With Villard liall jammed to the doors nt .vesterda.v morning's assembly. Presi dent Campbell urrged the new students to realise and appreciate fully the obliga tions to themselves and to the state 'which their new position thrust upon them. With over twenty-five new members on the faculty and an extensive building program in progress, President Campbell stated, the University is spending a gryat deal more money on education than ever before. This has been possible largely because of the student work 'on the Millage Bill last spring, -when by their actions the students promised a larger return to the state and assumed a greater responsibility. This obligation the new students must realize in the full est, in order that Oregon should amply realize on her investment. Knowledge for Use. ■“'What is education?” asked President Campbell. “It is self-realization. Our; purpose in attending college should not be -merely to gain knowledge; the doc trine of knowledge- kraiwlodgo mkm has long been a dead letter. It is far more important that we should learn to use it wisely.” One of the most valuable things to be bad in college is the social contact on the campus, said the president. It leads to mutual understanding end co-opera tion which lias been the Oasis of all civ ilized progress. The athletic field is the best moral laboratory in the world, it develops character, manliness, and loy alty. President Campbell urged thal every student should make the most of this opportunity to mix and make friends. Exactness Is Urged. •Knowledge acquired at college was made to work, the President concluded. The motive for attending school on any one’s part is partly personal and selfish, partly social and altruistic. We should enter upon our student life with earnest ness and sincerity, in order that we should finally acquire the most in self realization, he emphasized. Carlton Savage, president of the stu dent body, in his address of welcome said every freshman should know that Ore gon was small hut mighty, mighty in athletics, in forensics, in scholarship. They should not foirgct that Oregon was forever democratic and that with her the campus “hello” was a tradition. “Last ly, they must acquire the Oregon Spirit. Four years at college are all too short,” he concluded, saying that we should make the most of them' by “starting early.” Madame Bose McGrow, of the school of music, rendered two solos during the morning. A quartette composed of Mine. McGrow. Laura Band, George. Hopkins, and Glen Morrow led the singing. Invocation was pronounced by the Bev. J. Bruce Griffin. DR. REBEC ON CAMPUS New Dean of Graduate School Here for Committee Meeting. Dr. George Itebec, director of the Portland center of tin1 University of Oregon, and newly elected dean of the Graduate School, attended a committee meeting of the graduate council on the campus Wednesday evening. Dr. Itebec in re-organizing the Ore gon Graduate school states that every precaution is being taken to preserve the highest, possible standard of scholarship. The doctor's degree will only be grant ed to students showing exceptional crea tive genius. Every department iri tip* University, said Dr. Itebec, is- being shaped to form a more solid foundation for those who will contimvc through the graduate School. FROSH TO BE* GUESTS AT STAG MIX TONIGHT Villarri Hall To Be Scene of Revel; Stunts and Eats On Program. Freshmen will set their first real taste of University fellowship at the giant au nunl stag mix at Vi)lard hall Friday. Every man is expected to he there at 7 o’clock, and things will start at that time with a hang. “Johnnie” Houston is in charge of the affair and promises some interesting things in the way of a program and eats. Cider and “do-nuts” will he served the latter part, of the evening. Older men are urged to come a little early in order to welcome the new men and help instill all the old Oregon spirit possible. College yells, songs and n gen eral pep meeting will follow a short speaking program. OPEN HOUSE PUNS ARE DECIDED UPON Organizations to be ' Divided Into Two Sections Because of the iuereas in the number of women’s organizations on the campus since last year the student council has suggested a change in open house plans. Under this plan representatives from every men’s group will be able to visit every women’s group at open house which begins '.Saturday evening at 7:00 o’clock. The plan was endorsed by the local I’anhdlenic. It has been suggested by the council that the head of every men’s organiza tion divide the residents of his house iu to two groups composed of representa tives from each class, each group follow ing one of the two planned routes. The route mapped out includes Delta Zeta, Chi Omega, Kappa Alpha Theta, Cham bers Annex, Alpha Phi, Sigma Delta I*hi, Alpha Delta. I*i, Thacher Cottage, Y. AV. O. A. In the second group arc Gamma Phi Beta, Delta Gamma, Delta Delta Delta, Zeta Elio Epsilon, kappa Kappa Gam ma, Hendricks Hall, Haley Cottage, Pi Beta Phi. When the members of the men’s groups have finished their route, it is suggested, tli?y visit any other so rority which was not on their list pro viding they have the time. STUDENTS EXPECTED TO OBSERVE RULINGS Ignorance of Regulations Is No Longer Excuse. The responsibility for observing all University regulations now rests entirely i upon the students, says Colin V. I)y rnent, Dean of the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. The new booklet of University regulations which was placed in the hands of each student when he filed his registration card gives him full information as to all re quirements toward graduation and rules to be observed1 during attendance at col lege. Heretofore, says Dean Dyuient, many students who lmd not complied with some of the regulations were aide to plead ignorance of the rules. This hook, how ever, gives in an organized definite form the information which is needed, and from now on, declares the Dean, it is strictly the duty of the student to know what is required of him and to plan his college work to meet the requirements. The pamphlet contains information re lating solely to the academic side of college life. A booklet of tbe constitution and by-laws of the student body was is sued separately. The pamphlet begins with information concerning entrance re quirements, Knglish requirements, ad vanced and special standing, and amount of work to lie carried. It explains the post system, probation, and grade re ports. A table of contents in the front gives the subjects in the order they oc cur in the hook, and there is an alpha betical index in the back of the book. Any point upon which a student is doubt ful can be easily looked up and full and authentic information obtained. 4625 REGISTER AT WASHINGTON 4(525 students have registered at the University of Washington.
