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
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.”’
Frank X. Fasset. a junior majoring in
commerce, underwent an operation yes

tonsils. This is the first operation of

thick in the dim past when the pres

tliere was even then a freshman class at

they wanted to wear small gray caps as
tiie insignia of their rank. Acting , on
the theory that anything the freshmen
wanted was bad for them, the upper

that trash should NOT wear caps. That
was l<)0o. The frosh of 11104 had the

When 1 !><>'> rolled around sentiment
liver freshmen headgear had risen to tile
ivoint where it was necessary to estab

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

To the equipment of Guild theater lias
been added a drawing room set which
will appear in two acts of “Pygmalion,”

50 hours were required for the painting

Faculty Bulletin Publishes
Rule Made in Fall.
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
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. I

Cost of Reconstruction and
New Buildings More
That $700,000.
■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
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.
