IPTEO BY FACULTY
IS PERMANENT PLAN
^Question Decided at Meeting
Held Thursday; Favorable
POSSIBLE ERECTION OF
Matter of Organizing Men’s
Club to Be Referred
J to Colloquium
After some lively discussion the three
term plan, which has been tried for tlif>
past three years, was permanently
adopted at a meeting of the University
faculty Thursday night.
One of the principal arguments against
the plan was that three terms do not.
coincide with the higlwschool plan com
monly used in this state. Most prop
schools have two semesters, the first
one ending some time in February. A
student finishing at that time would have
to wait until about April if he wished to
continue his education at that time. The
fact that new systems of credit in the
high schools are making it easier for
students to graduate in three years or
three years and a half gives weight to
Another argument which was present
ed to defeat the idea was that six reg
istration days are required instead of
four, as under the two semester plan.
It was contended that two days lost by
nearly 1700 students, was a factor not
to be overlooked.
Better for Students.
Most of the faculty members believed
that the three-term plan is the best be
cause of the fact that more is accom
plished. Students are able to go to
school three months or six months and
yet complete a unit of their work. This
is especially good for those wlio are
working their way through, according to
the advocates of the plan. The fact that
the students themselves like the plan is
said to have had considerable weight
when the vote was taken as only about j
one-fourth of the members of the fae- I
ulty voted against it.
Among other matters considered at the j
meeting was the fixing of the time for
faculty meetings. 'According to Dean
Straub.” who presided, it was decided to
hold meetings from 4:15 to 5:45 on the
first Thursday afternoon of each month.
Heretofore the time has been from 4j
until 4:45. the change being made be

CHAMBERS HOUSE NOT

Twenty-One Freshman Women
Living in Tliacher
A new residence system for women
lots been started this year nt the Uni
versity of Oregon under the direction of
Dean Fox and Mrs. Edna Datson. This
s.\ stem is an outgrowth of the Hendricks
hall annexes which were established
The annexes last year were directly
connected with Hendricks hall, but this
year they are indipendent, each house is
organized wilit it head resident, house
officers. They have their own house
meetings instead of going to Hendricks
as before, their dwn social affairs, and

Hendricks hall is the main hall of
residence; this with the new hall, which
is nearing completion, Haley cottage,
and Thatcher house forms the residence
group this year. Chambers house was
among this group but was discontinued
last week as the house was sold. The
girl.- who were living there have been
absorbed into other halls, sororities and
■ a r.re living in town.
jGirls Follow Campus Rules.
There are 2.‘! girls in Thatcher house,a
21 of which' are freshmen ,and 20 girls
living in Uale.v cottage. 17 of which are
first year girls. Having mostly fresh
men in a house is one of the experi
ments of the system, for before it has
always been thought necessary to have
upper class women in a house for disci
pline and to uphold traditions.
.Mrs. Fowler is the head resident of ,
Thatcher house, and Mrs. Van Ncoy of
Haley cottage. Miss Hinsdale was head
of Haley cottage, but with the disband
ing of Chambers house was relieved of
her duties by Mrs. Van Scoy who was
the head of Chambers. The girls ad
here to all compos rules and regulations,
and are allowed to choose the girls they
wish to live with them. The two houses
alternate with each other in taking their
meals at Hendricks Hall and the Friend
ly hall cafeteria.
Whole System Under Dean.
This residence system will develop
more each year us more houses are es
tablished. The whole system heads up
under the Dean of Women, with Mrs.

Jobs to Be Allotted at Short
Business Sessions Held
PLAN TO COOPERATE
IN FINDING POSITIONS
Stress Placed on Industrial
Rather Than Social End,
John Gamble. who was elected presi
dent of the newly formed working men’s
organization in a meeting of the self
supporting students held in the “Y”
hut Thursday evening, declared in his
speech of acceptance that he wished it
distinctly understood that the organiza
tion was not to he an exclusive group,
efficiently organized t/i order that the
members might secure ntr the good jobs,
lie said that every student at Oregon
who is wholly or partially self-support
ing, whether he has a position at pres
ent or not. Should be made to realize that
tin* club has something for him.
“This is not going to be a labor or
ganization,” emphatically declared Gam
ble. “We will have to act fairly with
the employers! and in turn will expect
to act fairly with us. We must ar
range a system by which to get compe
tent men for the diversified work, and
and make the working- students’ club a
dependable organization upon which em
ployers can rely.”
No Personal Gain Expected.
In his opening remarks, Gamble inti
mated that the prevalent opinion around
the campus was that the working stu
dents' club was fostered by a few indi
viduals seeking personal gain. He said
he desired to counteract such opinion
by letting the self-supporting students
know that the organization had the sup
port of the student council. Don Davis,
who spoke in behalf of Carltoi^ Savage,
president of the A. S. U. O., assured the
40 students present at the meeting that
the student council was heartily in
favor of such a co-operative organiza
tion at the University.
Committees appointed at the previous
meeting of the club, and persons ac
quainted with,the labor situation in Eu
gene. proposed several methods of ob
taining and listing jobs. It was suggest
ed that wood dealers should be asked to
notify the “Y” hut, headquarters of the
club, every time wood was sold, as a
part of their service to customers. It
seemed to be the general opinion of the
members that campus work, such as the
removal of leaves and debris, should be
done by student labor.
Plan to Handle Day Jobs.
The Eugene Chamber of Commerce
will be asked to co-operate with the
organization when possible. Ily using a
relay or shift system, continuous all
day work can be handled by the stu
dents on other days besides Saturday.
Sinee the club is not to be a social one,
it was decided that the meetings in the
future should be short and business-like,
not to exceed one-half hour. Thursday
evening at 7:">0 was thought to be the
most suitable time for the weekly con
sultations. At these meetings Saturday
jobs will he allotted. Since Armistice
day arrangements will interrupt a Thurs
day meeting next week. Gamble said
i hat a definite date for ?ne election of
other officers and approval of a consti
tution will ho announced in the Emerald.

HAROLD MOORE HAS
STORY IN WORLD
New York Paper Contains Work of Jour
nalism Student On Mining
Harold A. Moore, a student, in the
school of journalism, is the author of an
article in the Magazine Section of the
New York World, of October 24, in
which is given a detailed description o.*
a new method of draft-control which
promises to revolutionize smelting ineth
'ods and save vast (piantities of fuel.
After spending some time inspecting
the new cost-saving device in u milling
plant a few miles south of Eugene,
Moore was so impressed with its value
that he wrote an article' describing the
merits of the invention. .! O. Anderson,
superintendent of the mine visited, is
Moore says that prominent engineers
and authorities on mining apparatus be
lieve that the device will revolutionize
smelting methods by reducing fuel costs'
eighty per cent, by solving the smoke
problem, by making a perfect condensa
tion of value-bearing metallic gases in
the mining world, and by checking the
escape of poisonous fumes from the
smoke slack which destroy plant vegeta
tion in the vicinity of mines.
The invention has been given much at
tention among combustion engineers and
scientific men of the Pacific coast, ac
cording to Moore, and he says that the
inventor has been asked to give a public
exhibition by them.
GET IMf LAUGHS
Comedy in Hands of “The
Company” Is Success
As a genuine mirth-producer Martha
Uice proved herself a second May liob
son in last evening’s performance of
“The Cassilis Engagement” as played by
The Company under the direction of
Fergus lteddie in Guild theatre. The
character of the vulgar, appalling, Mrs.
Barridge who had au unfortunate fond
ness for “cheerful elotiies,” became a
living type as portrayed by Miss Rice,
and she firmly established her reputation
as a side-splitting comedienne with the
audiences which packed the house for
both performances. The characters
were all admirably cast in their parts
and the play was replete with dialogue
of humorous content.
Equally as skillful were the character
interpretations by Marion Gilstrap and
Irene Stewart, who carried the other
leading roles. Both girls are well
known stars in University dramatic cir
cles. and their parts were especially
adapted to their talents.
Rector Likes Jazz.
As the dignified, superilious rector,
Vern Fudge brought many appreciative
chuckles, for his grace could not resist
waving his coat tails to the jazzy tunes
of Ethel, besides indulging many other
ridiculous mannerisms which went well
with his ministerial want and sober
Miss Charlotte Banficld, who carried
a minor part, gave the cast excellent
support and helped bring out the finer
qualities of the play.
George Stearns made a handsome and
romantic hero as Geoffrey, the pampered
and much beloved son of Mrs. Cassilis.

Other characters who were responsi
ble for the success of the play were Loc
ta Rogers as the rector’s wife, Mrs. Har

Wootten as tin* easily shocked Lady

Claire Keeney as tho dashing Major
Warrington and Helen Madden, the maid.
Lighting, Stage Effects Please.
Much credit is due Norvell Thompson
and George Pus to who were responsible
for the excellent lighting and stage ef
fects. Nothing more picturesque than
