KEEP THE TERM PLAN.
At a meeting of the faculty next Thursday the question of
whether the University will continue on its present term basis
or return to the old semester plan will be discussed and defi
nite action probably taken. It sepms highly improbable, how
ever, that the faculty will take final action on any such matter
without consulting the students, for they are the ones to be
most directly affected.
It seems incredible that anyone should want the University
to return to the old semester plan when everything seems to
be moving so smoothly under the present system. No one can,
deny that there have been fewer students dropping out in the
middle of the term. Under the semester plan, when each
period lasted four months. University records will show that
the list of students who found it necessary to drop work an 3
lose credits they might have made during the period, was much
larger than it is at present when the terms are short enough to
allow everyone to. finish the full quarter’s work before leaving.
That argument alone should convince the most enthusiastic
to got;down to work in time for examinations is advanced only
University work is not interrupted by vacation periods as
under the old plan. Vacations come just at the close of each
term, when they should, and but few complaints have been
heard concerning the breaking up of work under the present
The argument that the periods are too short to enable anyone
to get down to dork in time for examinations is advanced only
by those who would be unable to buckle down to real work a
week’ before examinations, anyway. Too frequent examina
tions is another argument of the semester backers. But if these
men would realize that examinations under the semester plan,
while not so frequent, cover one-third more ground as term
examinations, and are just so much harder, they would realize
their mistake. Besides, there are no vacations immediately
following exams in which to recuperate, as at present.
Practically all of the younger western universities of the
small progressive type are run under the term plan. Older,
conservative institutions still retain the semester arrangement.
Oregon is not ashamed to be linked with the former institutions
in this way. Oregon is young, small, progressive and western.
Oregon wants to retain the term plan.
MONDAY MORNING AND THE WOMEN
Oregon Spirit demands many thing’s. Monday morning it
demands that every student meet at the library to greet the
the returning Oregon football team, who arrive in Eugene on
an early train. Win or lose, you can’t beat Oregon fight, and
in spite of the lure of the downy, there is no doubt, that every
students will want; to show Oregon’s fighting warriors that
they are behind them.
Oregon Spirit demands something else. It demands not
only that every man and woman in school turn out for a rally,
but actually take part in it. In the two downtown rallies that
have been staged this year, University women have taken part.
And yet on both occasions, scores of women have lined the side
walk watching their friends give a rend demonstration of Ore
gon Spirit. Such action is nothing less than contemptible! If
every'woman ir. school followed the example of the high-and
miglrty scoffers who choose the sidewalks in preference to the
spirit of the rest of the gang, where would Oregon Spirit be?
Monday morning every man and woman in school will he
M the depot when the Oregon team arrives. And when the
“Thundering Thousand’' start toward the campus, no higli
and-mighty clique of women are going to make a laughing
stock of Oregon Spirit!
A club for men who are wholly or partially self-supporting
has been organized on the'campus, first stops toward that end
having been taken last Thursday at 4:1-') p. m. An organiza
tion bf such character should prove to be a success, and should
prove to be of material aid to the great number of men working
their way through school. But it seems as though the very
men who should he members of the organization were inten
tionally left out, as the first meeting of the club was called at
an hour when most of the self-supporting men were very much
engaged in the art of self-support. Practically one-half of the
men in the University are earning their way through school
more or less, and a few men should not set themselves up as the
only working men in the University.
Freshmen—The freshmen will meet at
the “Y” hut on Saturday morning to make,
arrangements for securing wood for the
frosh bonfire. All men of ’24 are asked
to. be out.
Bonfire Committee—All frosh bonfire
committees will meet at the “V”- hut at 51
n. in. Saturday morning.

JOURNALISM LOTTERY POSTED
The lottery list for the Journalism par
ty is posted on the “Shack” bulletin
board. It is very important for the men
to look up their names .and phone the
girl as soon as possible, according to the
eoJnmittee. If for any reason cither one
cannot go. the other is privileged to ask
some one else.
The jamboree will include all Journal
ism students and those taking short-story
writing. The party is to be held Tuesday
night at 8:00 o’clock in the Men’s Gym.

Tickets Now Ready.
As soon as a house knows how many
guests they are to have, the tickets for
the dance can be obtained. The head of
the house will write the guests’ names on
the ticket and the name of the house on
the back. No O. A. C. nor University of

been sent out advertising the week-end.

various papers about the state.
Tags are to be worn by every one in
order that they may be recognized. The
“alums” will wear brown tags, while the

Luncheon Is Planned.
K1 torts are now under way to try to
get the men of the University to help
finance the campus luncheon. It has al
ways been the custom to tax every girl
on the campus for this affair, but as they
are also taxed for the junior week-end
luncheon, they feel the men should assist
in one or the other.
Students are urged to use the Home
coming stickers to a larger extent, stated
Houston. Many have bought them but
have not used them, it seems, so every
ore who has not bought any yet are asked
to and all are asked to use them on the
backs of their letters.

INFIRMARY HOURS LIMITED
Students who wish to call at the Uni
vers’te infirmary, have been requested by
Sawyer to be more careful in observ
ing the clinic hours of 0:30 till It a. rn.,
and 1:30 till I p. m. “Of course," he
stated, “in emergencies and under certain
circumstances which make it very incon
venient for students to come at the reg
ular hours .they will be given attention
if necessary when they come. However,
in many oases it is just carelessness
which makes the students call at irregu
lar hours. As a special favor I>r. Saw
yer asks that more attention be paid to
this matter by the students.

The addition of “Dink” Templeton to
the Stanford line-up will mean a big fac

cially when it romos to kicking the oval.
“Dink” has a reputation for being in
“Bill” Steers’ class when it conies to
punting and it will bo necessary to keep
him a safe distance from the goal posts.
Powell is figuring ou Templeton’s toe

“Bill’ Steers has been having a little
trouble with his leg that was injured in
the Idaho game, but it is highly probable
that he will be in fit shape to do the
punting in the game this afternoon. The
exchange of punts between Steers and
Templeton will be a feature of the game.
