Phi Sigma Pi Beaten to the
Library Steps By Five
Reports Slow To Come In;
Hundred Per Cent Indi
cated by 15 Houses.
At the close of the subscription booth
last night li> campus organizations had
reported every member a subscriber in
the Lemon Punch drive and had turned
in their subscriptions. Wilbur Hoyt was
leading in the number of individual sub
scriptions with a total of seventy. The
houses reporting one hundred per cent in
order were: S-Muruldu, Phi Sigma Pi,
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Chi Omega, Phi
Delta Theta, Sigma Delta Phi, Alpha
Phi, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Delta Del
in Delta. Meta Theta Pi, Bachelofdoii,
Kappa Alpha Theta. Delta Gamma, Sig
ma Chi and Delta Tan Delta.
S-Marukla reported one hundred per
cent before the campaign opened but as
subscriptions were not taken until the
booth opened they maintained a repre
sentative in front of the bootli from mid
night until tile campaign opened. Rep
resentatives of Phi Sigma Pi, Sigma
Alpha Epsilon. Chi Omega and I’hi Delta
Theta arrived a short time later and the
five organizations were the first to turnJ
in one hundred- per cent subscriptions.
Exact Count Impossible.
‘‘There is no way of determining the
exact amount of subscriptions as yet”
stated Ellsworth, “some organizations
have not been heard from and individual
solicitors have not turned in their books.
The campaign is progressing fairly well
but in order to insure 1000 subscriptions
it will bo absolutely necessary for every
man who lias not yet subscribed to do
so as today will bo positively the last
dav of the campaign.”
Today will bo the last chance for stu
dents to obtain the Lemon Punch at the
seventy-five cent rate for four issues.
After today all students who failed to
subscribe will have to pay a straight rate
of twenty-five cents per copy.

' Architectural Club Promote
Workmen’s Society.
The Builders Guild of the Univcrsiti
of Oregon which is being formed under
the auspices of the Architectural Club,
is not only the only thing of it s' Kind in
Oregon but almost the first in the United
Mates. The purpose of the organization
is'to raise the standard of work, make
every student the best product, and re
move the stigma of commercialism from
the crafts.
The plan was proposed to the build
ers of Oregon at a smoker recently
given by the Architectural club. When
a vote was taken it was found that out
of one hundred and fifty Iftcn, only
three were dissented, and a partial com
mittee was immediately appointed to
draw up plans and a'eonstitutiou.
It is the earnest hope of every one
interested that: the guild will spread from
Oregon to ull parts of the country.
Frank Spores, general superintendent of
the works, sees no reason why this
should not happen. The workmen will !
go from here to other parts of the
coast, taking the guild idea with them.
The guild will prevent loafers or in
ferior workmen from giving unfair!
competition to the master craftsmen.
Every man must reach a certain stand
ard of efficiency and expertness before
lie is eligible to membership in the guild.
The master craftsman is always to be
in lino for advancement if there is any.
Me is'to draw the better salary and to
have the first choice of positions.
Through these methods the guild plans
to unite capital and labor on a common
ground, make the crafts an honor in
stead of a disgrace, and raise the stand
ard of workmanship.

English Class to Stage “The Stocking's
Revolt;" Equipment to be
“The Stocking’s Revolt" is the play
to be given by the junior .'! English class
of the University high school a week be
fore Christmas. This play shows the
different attitudes toward Christmas in
a rich family, and in a very poor one. Its
object is to show that we should return
to the old spirit of Christmas.
This is only one of many plays which
are being given by the English classes
of the University high school. They are
limited to short, simple ones because of
tbc inadequacy of the stage room and
equipment. The new high school build
ing will contain complete dramatic equip
ment. According to Miss Ethel Wake
field, English instructor in the high
school, they expect to attempt longer
and more complicated plays as soon as
the new building is ready for occupancy.
President P. L. Campbell Tells
of Trip To Other Med
ical Colleges. *
Plan Will Be Discussed In
formally With Faculty
at January Meet.
Appearing before the Associated Stu
dents during the regular assembly hour
yesterday morning at Villard hall, Pres
ident 1*. L. Campbell told of observa
tions he had made during a recent trip
east, during which he visited several
of the larger medical colleges, and also
gave a hint as to what, the University of
of Oregon medical school at Portland
may develop into if present hopes are
Because of the lack of facilities and
room, only 50 students a year can grad
uate from (he University medical college
(it, present, he said. It is hoped, he con
tinued. that this condition he changed so
(hat Oregon may yet rank as the Johns
Hopkins of the Pacific northwest. I(
was his contention that the field was
large, and what, with the present ad
vances being made in research work, in
which the causes of disease are deter
mined and means found to prevent their
inception,, (here would be-plenty of room
i in Which to expand.
Many Turned Away.
Over 100 prospective students were
turned away from the doors of the Uni
versity last year who had hoped to com
plete their medical education here and
who went to various colleges and uni
versities in the east and middle west to
graduate. Like numbers in the future,
if present pluns mature favorably, will
be able to finish at the University of
Oregon, he said.
Sentiment along the Atlantic sea
board was very favorable to the Pacific
northwest and to the higher institutions
ol learning in this section, according to
President Campbell.
Honor System Observed.
Among the colleges visited, and which
he described as being excellently equip
ped in buildings, apparatus and instruct
ors, were Harvard, Columbia University
University of Chicago and the University
of Virgiuiu.
I hc honor system at the latter insti
tution, which has been in practice since
" as the subject of a brief part of
the president’s address. It was espe
cially interesting, he said, aud was made
the object of close study during his
•stay. He expects to discuss it inform,
ally with members of the faculty at the
hrst colloquium held in January.
Work of Norvell Thompson In
“Prunella” Excells.
Tlif Company outdid itself last night in
Hie presentation of “Prunella,” a charm -
in?; English fantasy, which was staged at
Otiild hall. The play showed the type of
dramatics which can be expected of the
University players.
The story deals with an English maid.
J reared beneath the trying ol serration or
maiden aunts. A wandering singer — a
midnight serenade—an elopement —a de
sertion—a reeoncilation. and the story
is told. But the telling is done in an ar
| tistie manner that marks the best of Eng
j lisli fantasy.
[ Norvell Thompson, who takes the
| role of Pierrot, The Company possesses
j an actor of unusual stamp. The entire
cast is above the average, from the three
gardeners to the statue of “Love.”
Prunella will be presented again this
afternoon and tomorrow evening.
1 be play was under the direction of
Professor Archibald Ferguson Keddic.

Various Aspects of-Work.
Members of the faculty and students
who have not yet enrolled for the fourth
annual Red Cross membership roll call
may subscribe at the desk in the main
reading room of the library, the Y. W. C.
A. bungalow, the Y. M. hut, or at Miss
Hair's office at the extension division
in Oregon hall.
Tlie campus membership drive is pro
gressing very satisfactorily, according
to Miss Hair, who is chairman of the
committee, and several houses have al
ready reported one hundred per cent
memberships. Hendricks hall has report
ed 110 subscribers out of 130 girls there,
and they expect a hundred per cent rec

A typical piece of Red Cross educa
tional work in time of peace was the in
struction in how to rescue and rcsusciate
a drowning person that was given by Joe
Hedges, a University student, through
out the past summer. Hedges visited a
number of cities and towns in the north
west during the summer and organized
life saving units which were shown to
have been worth the effort by the fact
that several lives were saved us a direct
result of the instruction lie gave. Hedges
was directly connected with the north
western division of the American Red
Cross and but; for the existence of this
organization the toll of deaths from
drowning would have been increased,
j Few persons realize that theVe is still
an American army in Germany but it is
a fact that; 17,000 officers and meu are
still iu that country. These men arc in
the peculiar position of occupying the
territory of a people with whom we are
technically at war and actually at peace.

'Players Will Be Picked From
Material Developed In
Doughnut Series.
Coast Conference Schedule Is
Already Prepared; Others
To Be Added.
V acuity b « s k e t b a 11 practice, as
such, will uot begin until the first part
uf the coming term, Coach George SI.
Bohler lias announced. The intramural
series is taking the place of the regular
practice this term, he says. Both Coach
Bolder of the varsity and Coach Hunt
ington of the freshmen are trying out a
new system this year. .They wish to run
off the doughnut series before anything
in the nature of separate practices ' for
the varsity and frosh squads ia attempt
ed. The men will have a chance to 'get
in action in this series as the coaches
have arranged to allow everyone to en
ter who wishes ^o compete. The coaches
will watch the games and will decile
which men they want for the teams. A
list, of these will be posted at the first
0 fthe next quarter. This system will
prevent the necessity of elimination of 1
green material after the opening of the
season. This plan seems to be work
,iug well so far, judging from the great
1 number of hiou partleifiating. /
Eddie Durno to Pity.
Coach Bohler will have several letter
men back to serve as a start for his team
this year. Eddie Durno, this yeSf’a
captain, Nish Chapman and “Tony”
•Tacobberger are all letter men of two
years standing. Marc Latham and’Fxtn
cis Bellar ure also varsity men from
last year’s team. Durno and' Jacob
berger are forwards, Chapman and Bella*
are guards, and Latham is a center. Boh
ler thus has a formidable framework on
which to build his team.
There are also a number of the play
ers from the last year’s frosh team back
in college. Hugh Clerin and Rol Andre
were the two forwards. Hugh Latham
will fight it out with his brother for the
center position. Burnett, one of the reg
ular guards and Couch, a sub guard. Will
be out for their berths. Geue McKntee.
♦ lie other regular guard, is not in college
this year. “.Shrimp” Phillips, sub for
ward. is playing in the intramural
league uow.
Eight Games Hera.
Schedules for the Pacific coast -con
ference arc now prepared, and will be
found in another column of this issue.
Oregon has seven two-game series to
play with members of coast conference
teams, and eight games have been sched
uled for Eugene. The varsity quintet
will make a northern trip early in the
season, playing Washington State Col
lege and the University of Washington,
followed by a series with O. A. C. St
Corvallis. The remainder of the aeries
of games will be played on the- home
floor at Eugene. .v
Or eg ou will not play Stanford this
year, but with this exception, will Ua*
gle with every other team in the con
ference at least twice. No northwest
conference games have been schduled
as yet, but it is likely that gamijs will be
arranged with Willamette and Whitman
ulso, Whitman probably on the varsity's
northern tour, and Willamette either St
Salem or Eugene. , ,
Football Gama Postponed at The Dalles,
As Respect to Star’s Father.
“Out if respect for Heury P. Steers,
father of Bill Steers, one of the great
