Wilbur Ilulin, of Eugene, a senior in

Mr. Hulin is interested in the picture

scenario writing. He hopes to make this
his profession after he is graduated from

Kilpatrick, Old Emerald Man,
Likes To Dig In the Ground
INTRODUCING EARL KILl’ATELCK,
director of the University Extension
‘ 'Truth is sometimes stranger than fic
tion,” is tire way Earl Kilpatrick looks at
d, and that is the reason why he admitted
‘-hat his greatest enthusiasm is garden-j
ing. He says he always hates to tell the
truth about this because some day some
body might see his garden.
“I am a product of the Grande Ronde
valley,” says Mr. Kilpatrick. “1 came to i
the University in 1!KM>. and stayed here
three years, doing a little studying during
that time, and engaged in some student
Mr. Kilpatrick was editor of the Em
erald. which was then called the “Oregon
Weekly.” During the year that he was
editor a great effort was uiaclc to put the
paper out on a twice a week basis, and
at the end of the year this was finally
After his graduation Mr. Kilpatrick was
principal of the first union high school in
Oregon at Pleasant Hill. This school was
the model for the several dozen country
high schools which now flourish in the
state. Following this he was successively
principal of the schools in Oakland, Su
lem and Spriugficld. Finally he came to
the University as assistant director in
the extension division. The second year
he was made director of the division, and
then left the University on a leave of ab
sence to do Red Cross work in Seattle.
Here lie was the division manager of the
northwestern division of the Red Cross.
In June. 1920, he returned to his work at
the University. E- W. j
FUCULTY TO TIKE UP
10 SEMESTER PLAN
Committee Under Dr. Boynton
Will Make a Complete
Report No/. 4.
12-WEEK PERIOD IS
SHORT, SOME ASSERT
'System! Now in Use Conflicts
With State High School
Whether the University will continue
its work on the term basis, or whether it
will go hac kto the semester plan, is a
matter which will he discussed and settled
at a faculty meeting on Thursday, No
vember 4, provided the committee, of
which Dr. Boynton is chairman ,is ready
with its report on the situation.
According to Dr. Boynton, the fairly
even balance of arguments for both sys
tems makes it difficult to decide. Tin;
term plan, which was adopted in the fall
of 1017. was recommended by the gov
ernment as a war measure, and at this
time seemed to be an experiment well
worth trying. Each year the matter has
been reconsidered, and at each time has
been laid on the table for a subsequent
meeting. At the faculty meeting on Jan
uary 26. 1020. the final decision was post
poned. and the committee was asked to
have its report in shape by fall.
Expansion Era at Hand.
The urgency, of reaching some conclu
sion in the matter has developed because
of the rapid progress the University is
making .and the fact that a new era of
expansion in Some of the departments is
at hand. Dr. Boynton, who is also chair
man of the catalog committee, is anxious
to have the catalog issued early this year,
and in order to accomplish this, must
know upon which basis the University
work will continue.
One of the arguments for the term
plan, Dr. Boynton says, is that it enables
the students and teachers to finish up
their work when the big interruptions in
attendance occur. These interruptions
are at the Christmas and Spring holidays.
The greatest disadvantage of this sys
tem is that the periods are so short, and
necessitate so many examinations. In
the 12-week terms the professors find it
hurd to take up the new work and then
find time for reviews. There is also a
noticeable conflict between the arrange
ment of high school and college courses
making it necessary for some students to
enter the University in January, before
graduating from high school, or else wait
ing until the spring term or even until
California Swings Back.
Chicago and Stanford universities
adopted the term system and because of
their summer sessions, which are of sub
stantially the same length as the other
quarters, there is a large preponderance
of arguments in favor of the quarterly
plan, Dr. Boynton declares. The Univer
sity of Washington decided to remain
permanently on the term basis, while the
University of California, after tin; war,
went hack to the semester basis.
Other members of the committee be
sides Dr. Boynton are: Dean Sheldon.
Professor DeCou, Professor Gilbert, and
CREDIT FOR DEBATE
ASKED BY STUDENTS
Bib Carl Appointed by Forensic Council
to Confer With President Campbell
and Dean Dymcnt.
In making plans for the doughnut de
bate league, ltemcy Cox called a meeting
of the forensic council Thursday after
noon. It was decided that nothing defi
nite he worked out until it is found wheth
er credit will be given to students who
engage in these debates. Bib Car! was
appointed to confer with President Camp
bell and Dean Dymeut. in the hope that
such credit will be secured.
Considerable work is involved in pre
paring these debates and the council feels
that contestants should be awarded for it.
If it is not allowed, the matter of contin
uing the debates in the doughnut league
will be referred to the student council.
PLANNED 10 GREET
Bonfire, Noise and Stunts Will
Enliven Evening Before
Game With U. of W.
DANCE AT ARMORY TO
END ANNUAL REUNION
Affair Will Not Be Formal;
Students Requested Not
to Make Programs.
If things go off us they are now
planned the opening night of Homecom
ing week-end will make Eugene feel like
Pqmpeii did during the eruption of Alt.
Vesuvius. A rally such as we have nev
er had before, spirited on with red fire,
luminous fireworks and good old Oregon
fight, is designed, according to Lyle Bar
tholomew, head of the rally committee, to
keep early-to-bedders awake for hours,
let alone the commotion the freshmen in
tend to stir up when they light their bon
fire. which is to rival, both in height and
grandeur, tin* largest one Oregon has
ever witnessed. The well known fire of
1015 was fifty-five feet high.
The rally is all-important in getting
the week-end started off right, stated
John Houston last night at the meeting
of the Homecoming committee, and if this
event should be poor it will dampen the
spirit of the entire week-end. According
to Carlton Savage, president of the A. S.
U. O., Dean Straub plans to buy $175
worth of fireworks for the occasion. The
freshman class will give $50 towards this,
as will also the student body, the rest of
the money will come from the other
classes: As ye tit has not been definitely
decided exactly where the bonfire is to be
located, but it will probably be on Kin
caid as before.
Snappy Program Promised.
Stunts by the various houses are being
planned for the rally. The names will be
handed in soon .and only the best is to be
put on. The program is to'be snappy, not
to drag, and will be as original as is pos
sible. Efforts to get Johnny Beckett,
Don Orput and other well known “alums”
back to talk at this time are being made.
Probably one of the best features of
tlie program, which has never been jmlled
before, is the plan to get all of the Order
of the “O” men back at this time to
march around the football field before the
game starts. Efforts are being made to
get in touch with as many of these Ore
gonians as possible to get them to bring
their football sweaters to wear at this
No War Tax on Dance.
The jilaus for the dance are almost
completed, according to “Bib” Carl and
arrangements have been made with the
government so that there will be no war
tax on the admission. The patrons and
patronesses have been asked, and pro
gams are being worked out. A nine-piece
orchestra has been obtained for the occa
sion. “This dance"is not to be a propo
sition where the students are showing
the best of the University,” said Carl,
“but a good informal party, not rough
neck, hut a good time for the “alums.”
The students are urged not to make out
their programs before going to the dance
this year, as they did last, for many an
alumni^ could not get his program filled
last year under these conditions. We
must create a ‘feeling of friendliness and
see tjiat the guests have their programs

VICTORY MEDALS AT

medals at the University Hook Store by
II. It. Taylor, a member of the Veterans
of Foreign Wars, who commanded the
IS 1th Air Squadron during his nine
months service in France. The medals
are given through the kindness of the vet
erans in a spirit of comradeship. They

ments ,back pay .and difficulties in com
pensation and are closely associated with
the American Legion.
