meeting of the year last Tuesday night
"it is a club of students who are inter

Squabble Ended; A. S. U. 0. to
Use R 0. T. C. Band For
Report of Mary Ellen Bailey
to Be Investigated by
A proposal H>,v Major ■Raymond C
Baird, of the University Military depart
ment. to allow the student body the use
of the R. O. T. 0. band for all occasions,
such as yell practice, rallies and games
was adopted by the student council at
its regular meeting last night.
The IR. O. T. 0. band, according to
Carlton Savage,, who presented the pro
posal of Major Baird, is composed of
some forty members, mostly underclass
men. The R. O. T. 0. furnishes the band
with military uniforms and instruments.
According to Ravage, Major Baird
made the proposal, wishing to co-operate
with the student body and at the same
time afford the organization more time
for practice. The student council voted
to accept the proposal, agreeing to co
operate with the military department
and giving up pfans for a University
students band, which would be a separate
organization from the R. O. T. C. band.
Herbert Hacker, a student, is employed
by the military department as instructor
for the R. O. T. C. band. The depart
ment is equipped with several hundred
dollars worth of instruments for the use
of tile hand. ,
The band- last year consisted of more
than forty pieces, rtnd was under Hack
erhs, super vision during the last term. A
large number of the men who played
with the organization last year have re
turned to the campus.
The resignation of Mary Ullen Bailey,
historian, was'presented and a committee
anpointnd to investigate the condition of
the records. According to the historian
and Adelaide Take, who held the position
last year, the records are in such con
dition that it is impossible for a student
to bring them up to date. The investi
gating committee consists of Wayne Ak
ers. Nell Wfcrwipk ;and Ruth Flegal.
Thev will report at the next regular
meeting of the student conucil. The his
torian recommends that someone be hired
to put the records in such condition that
all future events can be recorded by a

TALK TO DEMOCRATS
Address to Preceed That to
Be Given in Courthouse at
Although nothing has boon done so far
to organize political clubs among the
students, a committee of campus demo
crats is trying to complete arrangements
for Senator George E. Chamberlain to
speak to those interested, tonight at sev
en o’clock, just preceding his speech at
the courthouse. If negotiations are car
ried through, the announcement will be
made at the assembly this morning.
A meeting of students who favor the
democratic ticket was announced for last
night to organize a Oox-Roosevelt club.
The committee decided to postpone the
meeting until tonight and make an effort
to have Senator Chamberlain here.
The Eugene Republican club is very
anxious that n Harding club be formed,
and although no plans have been made
as yet, something will be announced def
initely within the next few days.
.Those who were here in 1916 remem
ber the abtive part which university stud
ents tbok in that campaign. There were i
students’ clubs for both of the big parties. |
According to two of the professors the
apathy this year is*noticeablo when they
think of four years'ago.
Both faculty and students lined up for
one side or the other and a straw vote
was taken, which gave 'Wilson a slight
a.i^rity.,' The democratic club held a
meeting in Villard hall, in which Wm. J.
Hanley spoke. Several debates were
held, and literature was profusely spread
over the campus.
‘‘The Wilsonian” was the name of a
paper which was published in the inter
ests of the administration. It contained
live arguments from the student stand
point and was edited by Harry Crain.
Stanley Eaton and Floyd Westerfield.
However, thore-ds still nearly a month
before election and it is expected that a
greater interest will be developed. Al
though some of those interested stated
yesterday that students take very little
interest in politics this year. They at
tribute this to the aftermath of the war,
and to the difference in the appeal of the
issues of this campaign and the last.
Both the University of California and
the University of Washington have politi
cal clubs which are actively engaged in
the distribution of literature and the
presentation of arguments. Clubs are in
the process of formation at many other
colleges in the country.

OREGON TO BID FOB
Laying- out of Track Around
' Hayward Field Begun.
Oregon will make a bid to bring the
Pacific Coast Conference track meet to
Eugene as an attraction of Junior Week
end next spring, according to Trainer
“Bill" Hayward. A Pacific Coast Con
ference meet has never been held here,
and it is the opinion of Hayward that
Oregon has a strong chance of getting
the event staged in Eugene.
One reason that Oregon has not bid
for the meet heretofore is on account of
the poor track facilities here for handling
such a meet. Work will be commenced
soon on the new track which will be
laid but according to track regulations
and will encircle Hayward field. The
track will be a quarter-mile oval with
a 220 yard straightaway, and will hr
strictly modern in every sense.
Although the conference officials do
not meet until December, the movement
to have the meet at Eugene is already
getting under way and it is planned to
have a first class proposition to offer
to the officials at th^r next gathering
which is slated' to be held in San Fran

The University infirmary is treating,

physician. So far no contagious cases

More pioneering has been done by the
Health Service Department in the ob
taining of the services of 'Miss Grace
K. Roberston who, according to Dean
Bovard, has training and experience much
beyond the ordinary. She will have
charge of some classes under the Home
Economics Department and besides that
will do follow up work in conjunction
with the infirmary.
“We were fortuhate indeed in getting
her,” said Dr. Bovarc^in telling of Miss
Robertson’s experience. She is a gradu
ate of the Great Ormond Street Hos
pital in London, the largest children’s
hospital in the world. After eompletig
her work there Miss Robertson entered
the Post Graduate Hospital ^ot North
western University, Chicago. Training
equivalent to that of a doctor is required
to gain entrance there. She graduated
from that hospital also.
Served in Siberia.
During the war Miss (Robertson served
one year as a nurse in connection with
the Aviation and Marine Corps and a
year with the Red Cross in Siberia,
where she was attached to the General
headquarters staff in Vladivostok. While
there she was in charge of a children’s
hospital on the Russian Islands. The
refugee children from Petrograd were
sent to these islands and it was for the
treating of these children that the hos
pital work was carried on. She returned
from Vladivostok only a short time ago.
New Courses Open.
Two courses will be offered by Miss
Robertson under the Home Economics
Department. One of these will be a
course in home nursing and jthe other
on the care of children in the home.
The remainder of her time will be
taken up with what Dean Bovard calls
“follow-up” work in conjunction with the
Infirmary. This work will include a
wide variety of activities and will be
carried on under the Health Service De
partment. She will work entirely out
side the Intiiu<ary.
One of the things in which Miss Rob
ertson will asist is the making of a sur
vey of the sanitary conditions of the
school In general.
Sick to Be Visited.
A large part of her work will be in
kpeping in touch with cases of sickness
outside the Infirmary which do not need
a doctor’s care. She will visit students
who arc sick at home—those who have
been sent home from the Infirmary and
any others who need her help. She will
determine whether they should be taken
to the Infirmary and if that is not neces
sary will treat them in theij’ homes.
This will enable the Health Department
to broaden its scope a great deal.
Miss Robertson is an expert dietitician
and will gfive advice to students doing
their own cooking. She will suggest
menus and in general help them to keep
their appetites in good working order.
The women of the University will be
advised in regard to home remedies and
other problems of the home.
This work. Dean Bovard said em
phatically. is not to he of a prying
nature. Miss Robertson is here to h»dp
and will soon be a friend to everybody,
Only the most progressive universities
in the country have made a start in this
work. The University of Washington is
the only other one on the coast which
has so far instituted such a department.
