PRESIDENT TO MAKE
ADDRESS AT FIRST
ASSEMBLY OE YEAR
Meaning of Education To Be
Topic of Dr. Campbell
JOHN B. SIEFERT TO SING
New Instructor in School of
Music and Both Glee
Clubs Will Appear
‘‘ What is education T’'
The freshmen haven’t been on the j
campus long enough to find out, and
while the older students have, most of
them only think they know. But Presi ;
dent Campbell expects to tell the student '
body something about it at the first
regular assembly of the year to be held
in Villard hall promptly at 11 o’clock
this morning. All the students are urged
to be there as no classes are held at that’
Besides the talk and welcome of the
president, Lyle Bartholomew, president
of the associated students, will speak, and
there will be several musical attractions.
John B. Siefert, tenor, a new member of
the faculty of the school of music, will;
sing a selection from ‘ ‘ La Boheme, ’ ’ and
there will be numbers by the men's and
women's glee clubs. This is Mr. Siefert’s
first appearance before the L’niversity
students. It is said that he possesses a
very pleasing voice, and comments by
the press on his work in the east have
been very favorable.
According to tradition, the men of the
freshman class occupy the seats in the
balcony, and the women those seats on j
the lower floor to the left upon entering j
the auditorium. And that the members |
of the incoming class be in their seats is j
the earnest request of the faculty, for by :
attending assembly, and particularly the
first assembly of the year, the new stu
dents quickly become familiar with Ore
gon customs and life. Members of the !
faculty will be seated upon the platform. !
FROSH FOOTBALL MEN
NUMBER NEARLY 100
Candidates Appear Light and Many
Lack Experiencce; High School
Stars Among Aspirants
Nearly a hundred aspirants for the:
freshman football team are working out
every night under the direction of Baz
Williams, coach, and Everett Branden- ;
burg, assistant. Williams is handling the j
line candidates and Brandenburg is su- \
pervising the work of the backfield men. ,
The candidates for the freshman eleven
do not appear to be up to the standard
of previous seasons for the most part. :
They are only about middle weight and 1
many of them are green. Good coaching
and hard work should bring about much
improvement in a short while, however.
The first game is October 2'2 with Mr.
Augel at Eugene.
Haak of Washington high. King of ;
Franklin high and Smith from Forest
Grove are doing good work at quarter.
Bate Jacobberger of Portland is consid
ered one of the best kickers among the i
candidates. Brown, who played in Illi
nois last year, and Tergenson of Pendle
ton are also expected to make a good try
for a berth on the first squad.
Thirty-five of the men who are out are
trying for backfield positions and only .
five are out for ends. It is ■practically
impossible to tell who will have a chance
in the final frosh line-up this early in
the season and it will take at least two
* weeks of hard work to whip the squad
into shape for effective group practice.
YELL PRACTICE PLANNED
Tryouts for Assistants to be Held
Next Wednesday Afternoon
Hooters' ractice will be held on
nearly ever Wednesday afternoon in
order to tb elop a strong spirit of co
operation a mug the students and to
make the Thundering Thousand” a
reality, an rding to Del Oberteuffer,
The first ‘ime that the yells will be
dusted off ’or the year will be at the
Y. M. C. A. Mix Friday night and
this will be allowed b \"the first regular
yell practice next Wednesday afternoon.
Tryouts for assistants to Yell-King
Oberteuffer will be held at this time.
Sev- »al me: have already signified
their intent n of coming out but there
is lots of to m for ability and interest,
says Obertelfer. Names of all candi
dates are wanted in advance by him.
No Dates Made
By Bureau of
‘■Hollo, is this the appointment bur
eau.' I’d like to make an appoint
ment with Fergus Reddie!”
This, or something like it, is what
the other end of the line says a dozen
times a day when Miss Burnett, the
secretary at the appointment bureau of
the school of education, takes down the
receiver. Miss Burnett then explains
that Fergus Reddie’s favorite haunts
and habitations are entirely other, and
that the appointment bureau is intended
for the purpose of assisting students to
find teaching positions.
Any student who has had the re
quired number of hours in the school
of education, and the needed amount
of experience, may register at the ap
pointment bureau, but many persons,
Miss Burnett says, appear to labor
under the delusion that through the *
appointment bureau they may get in
touch with anyone on the campus. It
would simplify registration if this was
the case—but it isn’t.
SHELDON TO MAKE ADDRESS
Dean H. D. Sheldon of the school of
education, has accepted an invitation
to deliver an address at the general
session of the State Teachers’ Associ
ation during the Christmas holidays.
His subject will be, “The Life and
Service of ,T. H. Ackerman.”
APPOINTMENTS GIVEN OUT
MARIAN LINN GETS VACANT SEAT
Other Committees Filled by New Head

ced yesterday afternoon by Lyle Bar
tholomew, student body president, give 1
indication that the wheels of student ,
government are beginning to turn after
a summer of inactivity.

RELIEF WORKER FROM
SIBERIA PICKS OREGON
Wasili Muller Enrolls Here After 18
Months With Anti-Typhus Train
In Stricken Land
Wasili Muller, former student at
the Far East Governmental University
at Yladivostoek, and for eighteen
months attached to an anti-typhus
train that covered 10.000 miles through
Siberia in the service of the American
Red Cross, has arrived on the Univer
sity of Oregon campus to enter the pre
medic course. Muller arrived from Si
beria last week and brings with him
letters of appreciation from Red Cross
officials for his work with the organiza
tion in his native land.
The young Siberian received his pre
liminary education in Denmark and
since 1914 has been in Russia both in
the military service and with the Red
Cross train. Muller, who speaks good
English with but a slight foreign ac
cent. states that over 200,000 soldiers
were cared for by the forces of the anti
typhus train during his eighteen
months of service.
TWO ORGANS TO BE USED
Music Students Will Practice at
The organs of both the Methodist and
Presbyterian churches are to be used
for instruction and practice purposes by
students in the University school of
music. Heretofore only the Methodist
church organ was used, but it was kept
busy during all available time. This
year a much larger organ enrollment
has made it necessary to arrange for
the use of the Presbyterian organ also.
John Stark Evans, professor of or
gan, and Leland A. Coon, professor of
piano, are organists at the Methodist
and Presbyterian ■ hurches. respectively.
LINDSAY McARTHUR VISITS
Lindsay McArthur, of Baker, a gradu
ate with the class of 1920, has been
visiting on the campus for the past few
days before entering the University of
Oregon medical school in Portland. He
made the trip from Baker to Eugene
in a car with Jack High, a freshman.

MANY CHANGES IN
BUILDINGS 10 AID
Music and Business Schools
Have New Structures
OLD QUARTERS ALTERED
S e v er a I Improvements On
Campus Add Greatly to
Two new buildings have been occupied
and many alterations made in old strue- ,
turns since the close of the University 1
hist June. The new commerce building 1
was finished during the summer and is i
now occupied by the school of business I
administration, the department of ecu- ;
nomies and the department of history i
The school of music is llso in its new [
building on the south campus, where the i
sopranos no longer will have to compete
with the Southern Pacific railroad jazz.
The new commerce building is prac
tically a duplicate of Oregon hall and
provides modern classrooms and offices
for the departments housed there. It I
forms the second unit of a court yard,
which, when completed, will be surround- !
ed on three sides bv buildings and will !
face Thirteenth avenue.
Auditorium Seats 600
In the new music building there are
14 studios, 13 practice rooms, a lecture
room, office and lounge or reception
room. An auditorium, as yet not com
pleted, will seat 600 and has been design
ed especially for concert purposes.
Soundproof walls are used throughout,
ns well as patented soundproof doors.
The lecture room is located at the extreme
edge of the building, away from the I
studios and practice rooms. An up
stairs room with a fireplace has been nr
ranged for a meeting place of Mu Phi
Epsilon and Phi Mu Alpha, men’s and
women's musical fraternities. The
lounge and reception room is also fitted
with a fireplace. “This room offers
hospitality to everyone,’’ says Dean
Landsbury, “whether musicians or not.”
The furniture, draperies and carpets
were furnished by the Oregon Council of
Music, the students and the faculty. The
members of the faculty have fitted out
their own studios.
Old Buildings Used
The school of sociology now occupies j
the old commerce building, which will be j
known ns the sociology building. Some '
of the rooms are used by the rhetoric de- 1
partment, drama and architecture ami ‘
the arts.. The old music building now
houses the household arts department and 1
the extension division.. The old quarters ;
of household arts have been made* into a |
dining room for women living in Susan |
Campbell hall. Law ami languages will •
expand into the rooms in Oregon hall
formerly occupied by the extension di |
One end of the open air gymnasium is ;
being converted into training quarters
for the football squad. The east third
of this structure, which was originally a
dirt floored drill slu-d, is being walled in,
a second story built in and locker and .
showers provided.^ The* upper part will
be used by the coaches as office space.

ENGLISH COURSE CHANGED
Freshman Composition Class Placed
On New Basis This Year
The freshman English composition
course will consist of a lecture period,
laboratory period and a conference per
iod each week this year.
The lecture period is to be used for
large groups of students while it is the
aim of the instructors of the depart
ment to give as much individual atten
tion as possible at the weekly eon
During the laboratory period, which
will last two hours, the weekly theme,
which heretofore was written as home
work, will be written. This new sys
tem, according to Miss Burgess, af

which have heretofore been denied him.
Some of these advantages are quiet
surroundings, the presenee of advisors,
and an excellent training for extempo

.lust how should a thump begin? How
should it end ? Those are questions that
have puzzled many a university student,
and which brought out considerable naive
ingenuity on the part of a very young
high school girl in Klamath Falls, where
Fdiner Pendell, a last year's graduate of
Oregon is teaching English, and several
Mr. Pendell asked the class to write a
theme. This girl didn’t know what a
theme was, but she waited right in and
wrote a letter. Mr. Pendell says he was
surprised and almost overcome to find a
paper beginning “Dear Mr. Pendell
and ending “Lovingly yours.-' He says
it was a struggle to blue pencil that
friendly closing, but his sense of peda
gogv finally won—so he says.
NEW SECRETARY AT Y. W.
Dorothy Collier, ’18, Returns After
Two Years at Wellesley
Miss Dorothy Collier, new secretary
of the campus V. W. C. A., begins her
work on the Oregon campus this term.
Miss Collier graduated from the Univer
sity in the class of 191,S. In 1918 and
1919 she was assistant secretary of the
organization. For the last two years
she has been studying at Wellesley Col
lege, and received her degree of Master
of Arts last June.
FRESHMEN HOPE TO GROW

Barracks Hu m as Underclassmen
Draw O. D’s Issued By
“Say, sergeant, ain't elm got no
smaller coat? This’s a mile too big
“Who’s your tailor, Hill1? Some fit!”
“I'm only going to wear one leg of
these pants at a time!”
These are only a few of the interest
ing and highly colored remarks that
have been heard around the It. O. T. C.
barracks during the last three days as
the freshmen and others subject to mili
tary training have been drawing their
“O. D.’s” for this year’s cadet work.
Frosh Come Small
It isn't a case of the uniforms not
fitting the men—the military depart
ment was careful to order the right sizes
—but all the trouble comes from the
fact that the men don't fit the uni
forms. The incoming freshmen are a
smaller lo than usual (individually, j
not as a class) and consequently in
many cases the belts reach around i
nearly twice, the caps come down over
the ears, and the blouses are a little
baggy. There was one extreme excep
tion, however, when a 111-29 pair of
trousers were skin tight, and a 7 .'C4
cap fitted like a Frosh derby.
Neatness is Predicted
Many exchanges are being made,
however, and the quartermaster and his
assistants are working hard to get the
best fits possible. Many of the cadets ^
are also having a little tailoring work j
done on their uniforms, so by the time
the fir.-t drill day comes off, most, of |
them will present a very neat appear

Through the generosity of the dough

K0 volumes from the private library of
Mr. and Mss. Friendly. Included in
the gift are a number of volumes of1
books of music for the special use of
the school of music.

OVER TEAM IS NOT
SUED Bl COACH
Gridiron Warriors Big And
Scrappy But Slow on
Hoof, Says Shy
TONS OF BEEF FOR LINE
Little Speed Seen by Bart
Spellman; Mitchell Keeps
Quiet About Ends
Oregon's football team is not nearly
so good as the students seem to think,
in the opinion of Head Ooaeh Shy
Huntington. “They’re big, they've
got the fight, but they're slow and
lack the experience,” is the way the
coach puts the case.
In the baekfield Hill Reinhard is
showing especially well, his kicking is
accurate and lie is getting back his
old time speed. “Tiny” Shields, kick
ing and passing are improving rapidly,
and Tiny is beginning to look like a
sure bet behind the line. Hal Chapman
and “Chuck” Parsons are kicking ac
curately and with the experience these
practice games will afford should show
some real stuff. “Dutch” Gram, Ed
Kirtley, Ward Johnson and De Arinand
are all going strong and will likely have
a chance to shine in the opening clash
with Willamette, at Salem, Saturday.
Ends Showing Well
“Brick” Mitchell, end coach, refused
to express an opinion of the team as a
whole but has six candidates for the
end berths who are showing up well
though lacking in speed. Captain Mart
Howard, Neil Morfitt, ' Iiuuk” Latham,
Campbell, Risley and Karl Von der
Hart Spellman line coach, was of
much the same opinion its Shy.

The men out for line berths are big
and husky and as they develop speed
much can be looked for from them.

will be filled from .among Hugh Olerin,
Bylor, Dick Reed, McCraw, Floyd
Shields, McKeown, Bill Johnson, Mc
Allister, Benjamin and K. King.
May Spring Surprise

especially optimistic over the prospects
for a team and believes that it will
take lots of work on the part of coaches,

trip to play Willamette, as Shy intends
using it 11 the men possible in the initial
set to anil while little is known of the
Bearcats’ strength, a hard game is ex
pected. Roy Bolder the third member
of the famous Bolder family is coach
iag the Balem college and is expected
to put a strong aggregation into the
field against the varsity.
Hawaiian Eleven mrong
In :i recent letter to Manager Bene
fii’l, U. Hooper, tlir student manager
of the University of Hawaii, stated
that all but two old men of the Haw
aiian varsity are hack and that there
is plenty of material from which to
fill their places. The University of
Hawaii has scheduled six games and
anticipates giving Oregon a real battle.
Mr. Hooper thought it possible that
an attempt would be made to arrange
swimming meets with the University
and with O, A. H. The latter also ex
tended a warm invitation on the part
of the University and Honolulu for a
large delegation of alumni and students
to aeeompnny the team and assures
them of a royal welcome to the island.
Final arrangements have been made
for the trip, the team will sail from Fail
Francisco Dee. It on the Mnuai, and
will return on the Williamina dan. 4.
The estimated cost per man will be
between $300 and $400.
Practices will ontinue nightly with
a gradually increasing amount of

not only welcome at these practices
but are urged to attend them. Shy very
urgently request - that they stay abso
lutely off the field and far enough back
to give tlie players plent.v of room.
