with the strong arm of the Multna
mah law forces shortly after the
beginning of the summer vacation
term in the capacity of assistant jail

prospects for a very successful season.
A number of trips are being planned,
among them being one to Pasadena, when
the Oregon varsity football team plays
there. There is some talk of a trip to
Chicago should the faculty see fit to al

SAYS CARLTON SAVAGE
Important Reports, Amend
ment, Plans for Coming
The first regular meeting of the As
sociated Students of the University of
Oregon will be held tomorrow at 11 a. m.
in \ illaud hall. Important reports, the
presentation of an amendment to the
student constitution, and general plans
for the coming year will occupy the fifty
minute assembly, according to Carlton
Savage, and the combined men’s and wo
men’s glee clubs under the direction of
John Standi Evans will lead in singing
A report on the athletic situation of
the University will be given by Marion
McClain, graduate manager of the A. K.
U. O., while reports of standing and
special committees will also be heard.
Those to submit reports include Eddie
Durno, Greater Oregon committee;
Johnny Houston, Homecoming commit
tee; Wayne Akers, campus committee;
Norton Winuard, condolence committee,
and Johnny Houston, dance committee.
Final arrangements for the student body
dant-e to be given Friday evening at the
Armory will he announced.
. Wilt Present Amendment
All «mcndment to the A. S. U. G. con
stitution will bo presented by Harris
Ellsworth, former manager of the Emer
ald and the Oi'egana, students yearbook.
The amendment proposes to raise the
amount which the editor and manager of
the Emerald may make during a year
from $100 to $400 apiece. According to
Ellsworth, this merely means that the
editor and manager of the college publi
cation. which began the year as a daily,
might make more than the $100 a year,
should they clear that much after all ex
penses for the year have been paid. This
money would not come from the treas
ury of the Associated Students, but
would be earned as a result of their
own work, he said. The $100 arrange
ment was made when the Emerald was
issued but twice a week.
Bring Your “Handbook.”
Tlie combined glee clubs will lead in
singing Oregon songs after the regular
meeting has been concluded, according to
President Savage. All students are ad
vised to bring their “handbooks,” if they
are unfamiliar with the words of the
songs. The meeting will be dismissed
early in order to allow the freshmen
plenty of time for their class meeting,
which will be held after the A. S. TT. O
BAND MEETING GIVES
Thirty-five Musicians Turn Out at First
Call; May Play for Satur
With thirty-five enthusiastic musicians
out at the hand meeting in Vi Hard hall
last night, prespects for a good band this
year seem particularly promising. A
majority of the men were new. but the
old men were fairly well divided over the
various sections of the band.
It was found, however, that becivase
the "band is without a library, a director,
or a fund of any kind, it will be impossi
ble for them to turn out for today’s ral
ly. Sufficient money was personally ad
vanced bv those interested to allow for
a buried order to Portland that will
furnish enough music on which to start
the season. If the plans for a game
Saturday are realized the hand will be
whipped into shape for that date.
Rand practice was called for Friday
night in Villard hall at five p. m. Wheth
er a man will make a position on the
band or not depends largely on bis pres
ence at these early meetings it was
stated so every man interested shoald
make it a point to be out.
FRESHMAN OUT STRONG.
The T’niveTsity of Washington has 100
freshman out for football.

the year right and take advantage of this
opportunity to become acquainted with
each other. Johnny Houston, chairman of

especially cordial to the patrons and pa
tronesses at the dance 'Saturday evening.
