and instructor of harmony aiid analysis

Plan of Committee to Reach
Every Student; Faculty
Will Be Approached.
The fourth annual Red Cross roll cull
membership drive will begin on the cam
pus today under the leadership of Miss
Mozelle llair., secretary of the extension
dii ision, and a student committee. An
effort will be made to enroll every Uni
versity student in the Red Cross while
the drive is in progress, says Miss Hair,
and a system is being organized which it
is hoped will reach every student.
One person will be appointed in each
house to take care of the members of the
house. The faculty memberships will be
handled by one person in each building
on the campus and students living out
side will be reached by the Oregon club
and other independent organizations,
The regular annual membership ^ec of
one dollar is all Hint is being asked for \
at this time. It is expected this ninount.
from every individual will raise enough
money to carry on the post-war and the 1
regular peace time work of the organ

Although the. war lias been over for
two years there are 26,414 men still be
ing cared for in military, naval, and pub-,
lie health service hospitals who arc suf
fering from injuries or diseases received
in war service. Homelike cheer and
comforts are given these men by the
Red Cross. Claims of service men for
compensation and insurance are still be
ing handled through the Red Cross and
many men and families look to this or
ganization for help in getting re-adjust
The Red Cross must; also be prepared
for relief work in th^ event of such dis
asters as those of Corpus Christi, San
Francisco and Halifax. A dollar given
before such a thing happens will do
move good than a hundred dollars given
afterward, according to a statement made
by Red Cross officials.
Three million European children will
be absolutely witluut shelter, food, or
medical care this winter except for such
aid as Herbert Hoover may be able to
get to them through the backing of
several American organizations, of which
the Red Cross is the largest. Funds for
this work must be raised by some such
means as the Red Cross has adopted.
Health Educai'on Is Phase.
Besides these relief measures of the
Red Cross the organization is constant
ly carrying an educational health cam
paign among the people of the country.
Chief among the erfhses is the fight
against tuberculosis, from which 150,000
people die annually and several million
are constantly sick.
To secure the money necessary to
conduct these diversified charities the
Red Cross had adopted the plan of hav
ing an annual canvass of the nation.
Every person connected with the Uni
versity is urged to subscribe a dollar to
the cause by those in charge and a one
hundred per cent membership. is hoped

“It’s up to you!”
Adopting- this as the slogan for the
subscription campaign which will be
staged on the campus Thursday aud
Friday of this week. Ilurris Ellsworth,
manager of Lemon Punch, the first issue
of which will be out December 10th, has
appointed Dean Ireland chairman of a
committee which will include representa
tives from every organization on the
campus. The goal lias been set as 1000
subscriptions to Lemon Punch, each sub- j
scription to cost seventy-five cents, and
to entitle the subscriber to four issues
of the comic magazine of the University
of Oregon.
^ “It’s up to the students now," said j
Ellsworth. "We have already made ar
rangement s for printing the magazine,
and with one or two exceptions, all the
work for the first issue is already in.
If the students really want Oregon to
have a magazine of the type of the
Washington Sun Dodger, the Stanford
(Jhapperell, and the California Pelican,
they will have to come through with a
Nuhs(-rt|ttion to the magazine, otherwise
it will he impossible to continue.”
Ellsworth Goes to Portland.
Ellsworth, accompanied by Raymond
Tester, assistant manager, spent the
holidays in Portland, making final ar
rangements for the engraving for the
magazine, taking with them a portion of
the cartoons_aud pictures which will be
used in the first issue. At present a
large part of the euts have been com
pleted, and work .will be started on the
printing of the magazine immediately fol
lowing the circulation campaign the last
of this week.
Dean Ireland, chairman of the sub
scription campaign committee, will name
the other members of his eommittee to
morrow. Tags are now being printed
which will be worn by every subscriber
during the two days of the campaign. A
booth will be placed in front of the li
brary where u check will be made of the
number of subscriptions sold, aud where
tags may be obtained. A blackboard will
be used to aunouncc the progress of Hie

As an impetus to organizations, Ells
worth has announced a prize consisting"
of n hound volume of Lemon Punch to
the campus organization which first re
ports a hundred per cent subscription
among its members. Check will be kept
on the organizations by Hymns of the
blackboard in front of the library.
But little yet remains to be done on
the first issue of the magazine. The last,
week a great deal of copy has been re
ceived in the punch bowl, located in the
library as well as through the contribu
tion box in the journalism shack. The
staff artists have completed their work,
and all the art headings which will be
used permanently have been made. The
j cover design lias been drawn by Frunk

Henry Piatt Steers, father of Bill Steers
captain of the varsity football team, died
in The Halles Friday morning, as a re
sult of ’.juries received when he was
struck by mi automobile several days
The news of his father’s serious in
jury came to Bill shortly before the start
of the O. A. C. game. Itculissing that his
absence from the game on that day would
place a great handicap on bis teurn in
the biggest battle of the year, the cup
tain delayed his departure for the bed
[ side of his father until after the game.

[Angeles for the Thanksgiving game with

of the family at his father’s death.

California Eleven Scores Thret
Times Against Varsity •
In Turkey Day Game. ?
Two Touchdowns in Final
Period; Poor Condition
and Reaction Blamed
-r \
It was a badly crippled team, one
lacking materially and morfllv '
of the absence of Captain Bill Steers,
that went down to defeat at the
of the University of Southern California
football team in Pasadena on Thanksgtv*
ing^lay. The game was played at Tour
uuinent park, tlie scene of the greet
Harvard-Oregou battle of less thaci a
year since. The weather, too, acbririUng
to the veterans of that nationally fambda
classic was very must like that of' thfe"‘
previous New Year’s day — the day thlt •
the lemon-yellow warriors showed all; the
United States the meaning of “Oregbfr
Fight.” - -
One great difference in the setting" bf
the two games however was the state of
mind,'of the individual members ot
respective Oregon teams. The team that
played Harvard had that confide&e
bom of prime physical condition. They
bad had two weeks of twice a day prac
tice after their thousand mile journey
to the south, plenty of time to retdoVe
the inevitable train kinks. They’had
worked toward this game for almost' a
month. It was a grand climax. ' ■'" »
But Two Days Practice.
On the other hand the team that
played the U. S. C. Trojans had but two
days of practice after the Jong traih
journey in which to limber up. Steers
was not in the game. The team had been
put in prime condition for the O. At O.
game and from prime condition there is
always a reaction. The U. S. C. game
came as an anti-climax.
From the kick-off the Trojan's’ ad
vantage was evident. Oregon failed to
make yardage a single time, Nor di^ she
complete a single pass. The southern
university scored its first touchdown'is
the first period after receiving a punt
near the middle of the field apd ad
vancing the ball by a series of line plays
and end runs to the Oregon eight yard
line. The quarter ended with the scofe
U. B. C., 7; Oregon, 0.
Oregon On Defensive.
From the .second quarter throughout
tin; game Oregon played a defensive gajBue
punting on tiie first and second downs
continually. The Trojana scored again
in the final period. After comi>i$|ihg' a
pass |ir ten yards Leadingham to Defn>
