PRESIDENT TO MAKE ADDRESS AT FIRST ASSEMBLY OE YEAR Meaning of Education To Be Topic of Dr. Campbell This Morning 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’ hour. 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, yell leader. 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 Appointments ‘■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 IN COUNCIL Other Committees Filled by New Head of Student Body; Nine are Named Committee appointments as announ 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. Marian Linn has been named a wo man ’s representative on the student council to succeed Imogene Letcher who finds herself unable to return to the University until the second term. Other committees on the council have been filled ns follows: entertainment, Guy Koepp, chairman, Jason McCune, and Helen Carson; campus, James Say, chairman, and Marian Linn; condol ence, Maurice Eben, chairman', and Mildred Ferguson; and dance, Art Campbell, chairman, Alice Evans, and Clayton Ingle. 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 Town Churches 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 HOUSING PROBLEM Music and Business Schools Have New Structures This Year OLD QUARTERS ALTERED S e v er a I Improvements On Campus Add Greatly to Available Space 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 | vision. 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. A drying room for clothes will also be Installed. Journalism Shack Remodeled Perhaps the smallest of tin* annex fam ily resident "»i the campus is that built on the annex to the rniversity press. (< ontiuued on Page -) 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 forenees. 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 fords mail' advantages to the student which have heretofore been denied him. Some of these advantages are quiet surroundings, the presenee of advisors, and an excellent training for extempo raneous writing. MISS ANDREWS AT COLUMBIA Marian Andrews, ’20, has been awarded a fellowship at Columbia Uni versify, and is taking social service 'work there. Miss Andrews was in structor in commerce and English at The Dalles high school last year. ‘Lovingly Yours9 Almost Floors Elmer Pendell .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 other subjects. 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 WHEN THEY DO THEY’LL FILL THOSE R. O. T. C. UNI’S Barracks Hu m as Underclassmen Draw O. D’s Issued By Government “Say, sergeant, ain't elm got no smaller coat? This’s a mile too big for me!” “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 ance. FROSH PARADE IS TODAY Annual Event Starts at 4:00 in Front of Library The annual, proverbial and perpetual | parade of the members of the* fledg lings of the student body will lx* held this afternoon at 1:00 o'clock. The* linen]) will form in front of the library and it is considered highly probable by authoritative individuals that sev oral members of the class of 1921 will « be on hand to see that things go oft without a hitch. Green caps will be considered good form, if scanty head protection, for ; the doughty members of the 1925 ng • gregation and any that don’t happen | to be doughty as well. First come, best served and gentlest handled is i the unofficial promise of the -opho mores but no decision lias been made a vet on the form of punishment to be dealt out to laggards. .BOOKS GIVEN LIBRARY Through the generosity of the dough ters of the late Mr. and Mrs. 8. II Friendly, the library has received about 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. OREGON GRADUATE TEACHES K. Ij. Keezel, M. A. from Oregon in 1920, and who studied later at the Uni versity of Chicago, is now Professor of Education at Whitman College. STUDENT OPTIMISM 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 Aha. Hart Spellman line coach, was of much the same opinion its Shy. “They've got the beef, but they hick the speed.” The men out for line berths are big and husky and as they develop speed much can be looked for from them. “Spike” Leslie, Rudd Brown and Bark Loughlin are all from last years var sity, while the holes left by graduation 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 Graduate Manager Benefit'!' is not especially optimistic over the prospects for a team and believes that it will take lots of work on the part of coaches, players anil students to get it team to gether that will be as good its that of Iasi year. Approximately “o men will make the 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 -.orimnmge and while the students are 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. ALMACK STUDIES AT STANFORD John H. Alrnnck, assistant director of tie- oxtensii a division, attended suipmer school at belaud Stanford University and will continue his work there this winter.
