Dog-Comoriian Is To Play Opposite Red Die; Character Is Good Study of Human Nature. Lons, tansy, hairy, thin, affectionate hut unsympathetic, that is the kind of a tins Professor Ueddie wants to cast in the part ol “Crab." Shakespearean dog comedian, who will play next week op positite the professor, as Launce. in the comedy “The Two Gentlemen of Ve rona.” Shakespeare with his remarkable in sight in human nature has made a won derful study of this middle-class hound who at times mingles socially with the dog-aristocracy under the tables of dukes and lords, even though uninvited. He often carries his tail between his! legs, yet he must be the kind of dog fori which one will make sacrifices in order that the creature may be kept out of trouble. Tor poor Launce is often obliged to answer for the dog’s conduct, since his master has said “to watch me and do as I do.” And even though it is hundreds of years sine' the first “Crab" flicked the flee from his ear, inspiring Shakespeare by the act. Professor Ueddie still ex poets to find a prototype in our demo cratic day who can understand his place when mingling with royalty. And next week another “Crab” will have his day. “X” SYSTEM OR ERASER, WHICH? IS QUESTION R. O. T. G. Officers Introducing Foren sics; Debate Points Are Time, Money, Muscle. “Resolved. That the use of the eraser is the best method for correcting typo graphical errors.” is the subject of a de bate which has been raging for several days and which continues to rage in the office of the It. (>. T. ('. department. ’Tis a strange place for the practice of forensic art it must be admitted; but nevertheless. Sergeant-Major Agule and Sergeant Vaughn think forensics great spoyf. The row was started by Sergeant Vaughn when he cast aside the old an I (nm enlicnal use of the rubber and in troduced the new and less troublesome use of the “X” system. “The ‘X’ system,” says Sergeant Vaughn, “saves time and money. M.v opponent, the sergeant-major, spends ap proximately one-third of his time push ing an eraser, and if an eraser account were to be opened on our books 1 am certain it would be found that the money spent on erasers in one month would be sufficient to purchase a glass shade for every electric light in the office.” In behalf of the eraser the sergeant major says; “It does its work and does it well. This cannot be said of the ‘X’ system: for when my friend the sergeant finishes a sheet of typewritten work it resembles a full page advertisement for •X X X flour.”’ F. N. FASSET IN INFIRMARY. Frank X. Fasset. a junior majoring in commerce, underwent an operation yes terday morning for the removal of his tonsils.

The freshmen licked and strutted away wearing caps. When 1 !><>'> rolled around sentiment liver freshmen headgear had risen to tile ivoint where it was necessary to estab lish rules of conflict for the cap rush. The freshmen agreed to post notices of their intention to wear caps a week previous. Only lit) frosli and 110 sopho mores were to actively participate in the fray, but no restriction was made on rooting. The rules further provided that a man should be tied hand and foot be fore he was ruled out. and no metallic substances were to be used. The battle on this occasion lasted one-hall day. It is not reported whether or not classes were being held during this period. Again ! the freshmen were victorious. Having fought and won the right to wear the caps, the freshmen lost inter est in the game, and for a year or two none were worn. Then in 1JK)9 the up perclassmen decided that all freshmen must wear small green caps as a badge of their servitude. And they made it stick. “When you get what you want you don’t want it." The following is the first of a series of articles dealing with Oregon tradi tions. Others will appear at later dates in the Emerald.—Editor.

The placing of students on probation f'T the winter term lias Brought to light the fact that some of them have failed to understand the regulations affecting transfers or additions to their courses. Professor .1. II. Gilbert, chairman of the committee on revision of students' courses, has in the faculty bulletin call ed attention to the ruling established last fall to the effect that, no credit will be given for courses in which the student is not regularly enrolled. Already a number of petitions for credit in courses which students have taken during the fall term but for which no legal registration has been made have been received. The committee in every case has rejected such iTctitions "In some cases injustice may be done to viiiocri ini' siuueiu, says i roiessor “but only by strict observance of these simple requirements, can we avoid injus tice to students, prevent the confusion of records, check unauthorized trans fers, and discourage the ‘manufacture of credits’ to make good deficiencies of the previous term and escape the penalties of probation.” The committee further states that an arrangement with the instructor to en ter the class is not sufficient. If the registration card lias been filed with the registrar a petition for change must be granted and a change of enrollment card signed by thb instructor whose class the student: enters. The student can be reg ularly enrolled only by the instructor’s signing the original registration card or a change of enrollment card.

Cost of Reconstruction and New Buildings More That $700,000. WORK IS IMPROVED IN ALL DEPARTMENTS ■Wide Range of Full Courses Now Offered to Youth of Oregon. By Raymond Lawrence. The unusual progress which the Uni versity of Oregon is making toward jus tifying the faith which the voters of the state gave to the higher institutions of learning in Oregon in the niillnge bill, in volves unprecedented growth in the num ber of buildings, faculty members, de partments and schools, and the new scholastic policy made possible by the fi nancial support of the citizens of Ore gon. The enormous building program, which the University is now carrying on. is one ■of the most noticable results of the millage bill. There are three large buildings under construction. and to gether with reconstruction work, the cost is $700,000. The new . school of com merce will cost $100,000, Susan Camp bell Hall, new women's dormitory, $90, 000. and the school of education build ing. $125,000. The woman’s building which is already partially occupied, bus cost the University $900,000. which makes it the most expensive building on the campus. With the remodeling of the old gymnasium, architecture building, and other interior work, the amount of money involved is greatly increased. The work on these buildings is being done as ipiickly as possible, since tbe University is in critical need of more buildings. New Buildings to Come Later. The completion of new buildings under construction does not end tin*. Univer sity's building program. With the atli letie department's policy of athletics for everyone, comes the need for a new gym nasium. At present tin* gymnasium is entirely inadequate to care for the men who participate in the different sports Yillnrd hull, in which the student assem blies are held, has long been too small in sent all the student body, to say noth ing of the large number of citizens who frequently visit the meetings. Villard halt was one of the first buildings be longing to the University, and it will be replaced by a new auditorium. A science building, which will house the science de partments. is to be erected in the near future, and will serve much the same purpose as McClure hall does at present The infirmary, where the sick students are treated, is a small remodeled resi dence. A new, up-to-date infirmary building is planned, one which will be large enough to care for the men and women needing medical assistance. The* University library was built to house n student body about half the size of the present number of students. A large building, sufficient to care for the stu dents' needs for many years to come, is contemplated. These new buildings planned will relieve the University’s im mediate necessity, but they will be built gradually during the coining years. Work to Justify Added Funds. Ity providing the proper buildings and working facilities, and by the establish ment of a new scholastic policy, profes sionalizing in a high class way the arts the University of Oregon intends to inst il change in the educational tendencies Instead of the culture for culture's sake idea, the student now secures culture for professions’ sake. A definite profession al end is provided for every man and woman in the college. The work of a University of Oregon undergraduate is now accepted by the largest schools of the United States, even those whose standards are highly technical, said Dean I lymenf.
