Records Show 700 Frosh Have
Enrolled for University
Work This Year
HOUSING BEING CARED FOR
Every Department Reports Big
Increase. Exact Count
Registration is the heaviest this year
that it has ever been, according to all
available sources, and the freshman
class alone is expected to number more
than 700. All day Monday and yester
day, new and old students thronged the
campus and many are expected to
The school of business administra
tion reports a particularly heavy en
rollment in its courses. Late yesterday
afternoon 300 students had signed up
for accounting and about 75 had been
turned away temporarily until some
arrangements can be made to care for
them. Last year there -were but half
this number. The increase in the num
ber of major students in the school has
also been estimated at 100 per cent.
600 in Freshman English
In the freshman English classes there
are nearly 600 enrolled already, ac
cording to members of the department.
Ninety wer exempted from taking
English composition of the 360 who
took the examination. In English lit
erature courses there are 110 already
signed up for one course and 99 had
registered in the world literature course
late yesterday afternoon.
Over 300 will be enrolled in the pre
medic courses, if estimates based on
incomplete registration are correct.
There will be a 50 per cent increase in
the number of freshman in this depart
ment over that of last year, it is
thought. Pre-engineering will also have
a large number enrolled in its classes.
The school of journalism will have
nearly 100 freshmen alone enrolled in
the courses there and the number of
upperclassmen who have returned prom
ises to lie large. Architecture predicts
a 50 per cent increase in the freshmen
majoring in that department with a
good proportion of advanced students.
A fifty per cent increase in the school
of sociology is also reported.
The department of physical education
for women has been swamped with the
rush of registration and the increase ia
the number of freshman majors is ex
pected to be nearly 50 per cent. A
large increase in the number of men
taking physical education is also indi
With between 75 and 80 per cent of
last year's students who did not gradu
ate back in school, according to an
estimate made by Dean Dyment, and a
freshman class of 700 the total regis
tration should come close to the 2000
mtu’;. A heavy registration is also
expected in the Portland extension cen
ter. where a number of new courses
have been provided and arrangements
made to care for an increase in the
number of students.
Authentic figures on the total regis
tration cannot be obtained before Fri
day as the registrar’s office must check
up on the study cards, many of which
have not yet been filed. A report from
the business office on the number who
have paid their fees may be available
today or tomorrow.
Rooming x acuities Ample
The housing situation is being eared
for in t'aiflv good shape and when the
confusion of registration settles down
no shortage of rooms is looked for.
More rooms were available for men
than for women and this caused some
difficulty for the housing committee.
Vi mergence housing measures have
cared for the temporary overflow.
MUSIC READING OFFERED
The ■v ieutifie Music reading course
iu the University school of music, one
of the music courses for- which there is
no tuition, is one of the most practical
in the school, according to Anna Lands
bury Beck, who will have charge of the
class. Tn spite of this, however, she
said, it is quite often overlooked until
later in the 'ear. This year she does
not want to take in beginners after the
first term uncus they have had the
equivalent of the work already covered.
to Student Body
The year is starting with a fine
spirit. New buildings, additional
instructors, closer organization, ris
ing standards, a large and well pre
pared entering class, nearly all old
students back,—these are some of
the factors which are making for
the best year the University has

GAMMA PHI PENALIZED
BY PANHELLENIG COUNCIL
Violation of Pledging Rules
Charged Against House
Following a thorough investigation car
ried on by the alumni board of the Pau
hellenic council yesterday afternoon,
l hamuli Phi Beta, girls national sorority,
was forbidden to pledge any students
until after November J. This action was
taken as a result of charges being
brought against the Gammi Phi Beta so
rority that members of the sorority had
visited with a rushee during the hours
when she was supposed to have had dates
with the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority.
This was in direct violation of the
Pan-hellenic rules and after hearing the
charges and the proof the Council im
posed the penalty. As a result the Gam
ma Phis will not be allowed to pledge any
girls at this time while the other organ
izations are receiving the new members.
Girl Made Late
The complete charge as brought against
the Gamma Phi Betas by the Kappa
Kappa Gammas, was that the rushee in
question had dinner dates with the Kap
pas and that members of the Gamma Phi
Beta sorority deliberately kept the girl
from her appointment until 6:45 o’clock,
or until after the hour for’the dinner date
to begin. Afternoon dates with the
guests were supposed to end at 5 o’clock,
while the dinner dates began at 6 o’clock
in the evening.
Further Penalty Given
As a further penalty the Board ruled
that the Gamma Phis shall not entertain
anv non-sorority girls during the period
during which they will not be allowed to
pledge new members. This is the first
violation of the Pan-hellenic' rushing
rules which has been reported this year.

NEW OVEN IN FRIENDLY HALL
A modern electric linking oven and
automatic electric eoft’ee percolator
have been added to the Friendly hall
kitchen. The baking oven will not be
used for Friendly hall alone but will
supply pastry and rolls, for Hendricks
hall and Susan Campbell hall. This
new oven was made necessary by the
increased number of students boarding
at the halls this year.
y. M. RECORDS FOR
100 Men Students Get Jobs
Totaling $2000 During
Past Few Days
MORE WORK CRYING NEED
Scores of Freshmen Seek Hut
To Get Employment Or
Room and Board
At the present rate, the $10,000 em
ployment business done by the Y. M.
C. A. last year will be far surpassed, as
nearly $2,000 worth of jobs have al
ready been given out this term, and
many more students are on the waiting
list for any work reported into the “Y”
office. More than a score of regular
jobs for the year have been provided,
and these, together with the temporary
work put the total number of men who
have been given something to do close
to the hundred mark.
It is estimated that three-fourths of
the freshman have come to the hut,
either in search of employment or room
and board. Although men were at
first sent out to rooms from both the
administration building and the “Y-,”
the major part of this work has been
handled by the latter organization, and
the list of rooms was turned over to it
yesterday, so that in the future all
rooms will be handled from the hut.
Many Depending on Jobs
The need for more work for the stu
dents on the campus is great, and the
“Y” is at present far from able to meet
the demand for jobs. Many men have
told Mrs. Donnelly, who has been
handling the employment, that unless
they are soon able to find something to
do they will be forced to return home.
As an example of this, five men -who
came from Dakota, who intend to make
their way through school entirely with
what money they can earn while here.
When men apply for work their
names, together with what kind of work
they desire, are filed besides those
ready for anything they can find, there
are a large number of trained stenog
raphers, bookkeepers, and students
skilled along special lines, whom the
“Y” is seeking to put into their par
Student Handbook Useful
The student handbook was again pub
lished by the Y. M. C. A. this year, and

freshmen. This year's book, a great

year, was edited and managed by John

that have been made. The loss of Hal

considered to fill his place, and a new

Saturday night, by the young people of

MUSIC HEADS IN DEMAND
Several University Graduates Get
The number of public school music
teachers graduated Inst spring was not
nearly sufficient to supply the demand
in the schools of the state for music
supervisors, according to Anna Lands
bury Beck, head of the public school
music department of the University
school of music. Places have been
btained by all of the last spring's
graduates of that department.
Among those working as supervisors
are Leona Marsters at Ashland. Madge
Calkins at Roseburg, Laura Rand at
Bend, Friederika Sc-hilke at Wallowa,
and Vincent Engeldinger at Vale.
Many good places have gone unfilled,
said Mrs. Beck. In one place a monthly
salary of $100 was offered for work
one half time as music supervisor with
a chance to give music lessons during
the remaining time for an additional

The editor had his troubles with
today’s initial edition of the 1922
Emerald. And the difficulty
hinged about the personages of
two ex-editors of the “official or
gan, Smith, editor last year and
Abbott, the year preceding, who
have returned to th campus to con
tinue their studies this year. They
both had their own ideas on how to
edit the sheet and coupled with this
disturbing fact they both were
fresh from the Pendleton Tribune,
where Smith had served as city
editor during the summer months
and Abbott as news editor for the
past 14 months.
Editor Maxwell, was deaf to the
entreaties of his predecessors, how
ever, and dressed up his charge mi
nus the scare heads begged for by
the two “old heads.”
Margaret Scott, ’24, served as
society editor of the Tribune dur
ing the past summer and when
she returned to college this fall
with Smith and Abbott, Editor
Harry Kuck, ’16 of the Tribune,
was faced by the task of acquiring
an entire news staff.
More Than 300 Signed Up and
Waiting List Long
All, records for enrollment in the de
partment of military science will be
broken this year according to present in
dications and Major Baird, head of the
military department. Up to 11:30 Tues
day morning, 2.0 freshmen, GO sopho
mores and 14 juniors and .seniors had
signed up and the waiting line appeared
as large as ever.
The instructing staff for the year will
consist of Majors Baird and Roland,
Captain Lewis, Sergeant - Major Agule
and Sergeants Powers. Vaughn, Conyers
and Sullivan. AH of these men served on
last year’s staff with the exception of
Captain Lewis and Sergeant Powers. Cap
tain Lewis was detailed ot the Univer
sity, bv the government, from (iermauy,
where he was serving with the American
Army of Occupation and Sergeant Pow
ers will take charge of the Quartermaster
department which was in charge of Ser
geant Bradley who will not return.
According to Major Baird the first
drill will be held at 11 o'clock this
morning. During the fall term there will
be three drill periods, 11 o’clock, Mon
dav, Wednesday and Friday, per week
while during the winter and spring term
there will be but two drill periods. Dur
ing the, winter and spring terms there
will be no drill for upper-classmen. The
drill period will be used by the juniors
for the study of field engineering while
the seniors will study military tacites.
The theoretical courses to be used tins
year will require text books, which, ac*«
cofuTug to Major Baird, will be on sah
at the Co-op within a short time. Shoes
will not be supplied by the government
this year but Major Baird believes that
they will be next year.

GRID SPUD WORKS
HARD FOR SCHEDULE
OF NINE CONTESTS
Eleven Rounding Into Shape
With Practice Morning
GREEN MEN SHOW WELL
Shy Huntington, Mitchell and
Spellman Start Building
With almost two weeks of the heavi
est kind of football workouts behind
them the varsity football squad of 40
men under the tutelage of Head Coach
“Shy” Huntington, line coach Spellman
and backfield coach “Brick” Mitchell
is rounding into shape for the opening
game with Willamette at Salem on
Saturday of this week.
The squad will feel keenly the losses
of last year. In the backfield; Bill
Steers, Nish Chapman, and Mead left
holes that will be hard to fill, while the
line is weakened by the loss of Ed
Ward, Carl Mautz, and Brick Leslie.
The last years frosli squad together
with the varsity substitutes of last year
will be used to plug the holes.
In the back field it will be necessary
for Huntington to develop a quarter
back to fill the place left by the loss
of Bill Steers. “Sheet” Manerud who
filled the position as Bill’s relief
and understudy in ’19 has decided not
to enter the University which leaves
Bill Reinhart, Hal Chapman, and Dutch
Gramm as the likely looking prospects.
Reinhart piloted last years eleven prior
to Steers return to school when he was
shifted to half. Chapman was used
at quarter on last years’ freshman team.
Last Year’s Frosh for Backfield
George King last year’s fullback
looks good for another year, George is
heavier than ever and is rapidly round
ing into condition since his arrival last
Thursday. Tiny Shields will probably
be used behind the line this year, as
he can kick and carries the ball handily.
Last years freshman team is sending up
some men that look like sure varsity
material for the halves, Charlie Par
sons the outstanding star of last fall's
yearling aggregation and a brother of
Johnny Parsons, former letter man.
Tom D’Armand is another big man who
went at top speed with the Frosh until
he broke liis collar bone, while Ward
Johnson and Dutch Gramm are big men,
speedy and with lots of punch but lack
ing in experience.
The line looks pretty strong with a
nucleus of the following letter men to
work from: “Spike” Leslie, two year
varsity tackle, “Mart” Howard with
two years at end, Rudd Brown who won
his letter last year in a wing position,
Neil Morfitt, end, Scotty Strachan who
won his letter at guard, “Bark”
Laughlin a veteran of the Ii»llu team.
There are lots of big men out for line
positions, from last year’s varsity subs
and from the ’-0 yearlings, and these
with the veterans mentioned above
should produce a strong shifty line.
Practically all of the men out have
bet n plugging away with two strenuous
workouts a day, morning and afternoon,
since September 15, until yesterday
when registration and the taking up of
scholastic work necessitated the elimi
natng of the morning practice.
