    Oregon Daily Emerald
Don’t Fit In With
Campus Life and Are
Because “Hello” and
A Smile Is Tradition
- By Jay Dee -
Such chilly days and nignts as these
should not be all blamed on the freeze.
Frost has its part, as we all know, as
do the artic winds that blow. But
gven then, you must admit, the sun shines
bright through all of it. The weather
wears a smiling face though trying
hard to freeze the race.
Now there’s a moral in this tale be
cause without one it would fail. Too
many men, and women too, go round
with faces long and blue. They meet
each other on the walks and scarce one
to t’other talks. And if by chance one
said ‘ ‘ Hello ’ ’ we doubt if he’d survive
the blow. Instead, they shrug a chilly
shoulder and every day get cold and
colder. They haven’t even got the grace
to hide behind a cheerful face.
If ever in your search for knowledge
you chanced to see another college you’d
know what makes our famous spirit and
why the other places fear it. The secret
of it, you must know, is just a hearty,
frank ‘ ‘ hello. ’ ’ Too many folks, I’m
here to tell, omit the ‘o’ and there’s
the hell. And if they even fail to smile
they miss the mark by half a mile. ^
Now back in days of 1902 we had of
students but a few. Each knew the
other’s given name, both frosh and
senior, man and dame. It was a common
duty then to say ‘ ‘ hello ’ ’ to Ruth or
Ben. The times have changed a good
deal since and now the school is quite
immense. ’Tis now a greater debt we
owe than that of twenty years ago. To
friends the greeting then was due and
now the debt is to the TJ.
If we would keep our envied name
of fighting teams and spirit game we
must unloose our stiffend tongues and
pump ‘ ‘ hello’s ’ ’ from out our lungs.
We must unbend our lips and smile
and seem to mean it all the while.
Shout out a greeting, light or dark, from
Hello Lane to Hendricks park. If you
speak first the other guy is duty bound
to make reply. And girls, oh girls,
please don’t delay just so you’ll have
the final say. And bashful men, re
member this, you’re s’posed to speak to
every miss.
Because with every two “hello’s” the
famous spirit grows and grows. Two
thousand students ought to do one
thousand times as much as two. Don’t
be by frosty days outdone, at least re
flect a little sun and though you’re cold
as ice within thaw out to say ‘ ‘ hello ’
and grin.
Ten Registered; English Literature
Leads With Six Candidates
Ten students are registered for hon
ors, according to the faculty bulletin.
The English literature department leads
the list with six registrants. Last term
several instructors reported as satis
factory for honors students who are
not candidates, says the bulletin. This
list then does not contain the names of
all students whose work would justify
registration for honors
The honor students are: English lit
erature, Gayle Acton, Nell Southworth
Allen, Emily Perry, Emily Veazie;
business administration, Leonard B.
Jordan, C. Garl Myers, and Chester
Zumwalt; chemistry. Meryl W. Dem
ing; journalism, John Dierdorff; and
psychology, Florence Biddle.
Dean Landsbury Gives Praise
to Program of Classics
and Popular
Other Numbers Enjoyable;
Many Campus Artists to
Take Part
“The program as arranged for the
Mu Phi Epsilon concert today promises
to be the most entertaining and delight
ful interpretation of classical and popu
lar music ever given the students of
the University,” said Dean Landsbury,
of the school of music, in a statement
| yesterday concerning the annual con
: cert of Mu Phi Epsilon, honorary musi
cal sorority, which will be given today
! at the assembly hour.
“Particularly do I wish to commend
' the orchestra numbers, “Waltzing Doll”
by Poldini and “Salut d’Amour” by
j Edward Eiger. These numbers, al
though written for large orchestras,
have been rearranged by the students
into charming compositions, especially
fitted for the instruments of their
choice,” continued the dean. “I sin
cerely hope every student and member
of the faculty on the campus will enjoy
the privilege of hearing these talented
young artists at this time.”
Variety in Program
The concert, which is an annual af
fair, includes a wide variety of selec
tions, as well as the orchestration num
bers. Esther Wilson, soprano, is to
sing “Visi d’A^te” (Love and Music)
from the famous opera “Tosca” by Puc
I cini- In speaking of her, Mrs. Anna
[ Landsbury Beck, instructor in the
school of music, says, “Miss Wilson
posesses a voice of rare quality, as well
as great dramatic ability. Her work is
sure to appeal to the students for its
; quality and range of feeling.”
Lora Teschner, celloist, who is to
I play “Tarantelle” by Squire, is well
| known for the high quality and deli
! cate technique of her work. She is at
present an instructor of cello in the
school of music, and has had consider
able concert experience. The arrange
ment, of the entire program was under
her direction.
Something Different Offered
Something unique and different is
] “Gallata” by Papina, which has been
arranged for three violins. It is to be
played by Alberta Potter, Margaret
Phelps, and Helen Harper, students of
the school of music, who have become
very popular in local music circles.
[“This number, as interpreted by these
young artists,” said Bex Underwood,
instructor in violin, “is not only ex
tremely pleasing for its melody and
I rhythm, but it will prove especially
attractive for its novelty and unique
ness.” Mr. Underwood also speaks
very highly of the other numbers on the
A special feature will be the pre
sentation of two numbers by the Mu
Phi double quartet, composed of Esther
Wilson, Florence Garret, Mildred Smith,

Winter Term Enrollment 1904;_
150 Here From Other Colleges
The registrar's report, filed with the
-president and the board of regents Jan
uary 10 shows a decided percentage of
growth in all departments of the Uni
versity during the year 1920-21. Fig
ures compiled up to the 10th of the
month show the total enrollment for
-the winter term to be 1904. This is a
slight falling off from last term’s
figures. The fall term of the present
year opened September 26 and closed
December 16. During that term there
were enrolled 2012 students, 1074 men
and 938 women. The enrollment for
the fall term of 1920 was 1688, of whom
904 were men and 784 women. The
growth amounts to almost twenty per
cent in a year.
Many Did Not Return
The decrease in enrollment from last
term’s figures is due to the failure of
275 of last term’s students to return
and to the fact that only 167 new stu
dents enrolled for the new term. These
figures do not include medical, music,
extension, correspondence or summer
school students. The falling off in the
number at the beginning of the winter
term is greater this year than it has
been in the last two years at the same
The figures of comparative enroll
ment by classes and sex for the fall
term of 1921-22 show that the fresh
man class had the largest membership
with 684, of whom 364 were men and
320 women. The sophomores had 440,
juniors 407, and seniors 276 with a ma
jority of men in every case.
At the beginning of the fall term for
this year 842 new students enrolled,
of whom 148 had had college work else
where. In 1920 there were only 694
new students for the fall term as com
pared with 851 for the year before.
Returning soldiers and war workers
account for the relatively large num
ber of new students at the opening of
State Schools Represented
The figures indicate that most of the
students in the University came here
from high schools in the state. There
is a total of 628 nev students from the
high schools of Oregon. Eugene high
school sent the greatest number with
67. The Portland high schools rank
next. There were 57 from Lincoln, 56
from Jefferson, 52 from Washington.
Salem high school had the next largest
number of representatives with 28
Those which followed next in order
were: Astoria with 18,-Baker 14, Oregon
City 13, and Pendleton with 12. There

Seven Ages of
Man Found in
Single House
An armchair artist in a fraternity
house conducted a personal census the
other evening. The results were inter
esting. Out of 35 members, 28 were
old enough to vote. The oldest had 31
moss covered years to his credit and
the youngest could lisp the callow
figures ‘17.’ The average age was 22.4
The oldest man is a well known post
grad, carrying the complexion of a
leather jerkin, with wrinkles over the
ears, and a laugh that ever and anon
crack9 with the treble cackle of age.
He takes extended trips into the hills
every week-end, studying tihe rocks
and fissures, evidently seeking some
suitable two by six location for a grave.
The youngest member has neither
wrinkles nor cackle nor interest in
Men to Practice Every Evening From
Four Until Six; Men on Varsity
Team Barred From Contest
Both the individual championship,
and the interfraternity title will be de
termined in the doughnut wrestling
meet to be held at the men’s gym in
February. Many wrestlers have al
ready signed up, and all weights will
be represented in the meet. Practice
under the direction of Pete Jensen is
being held every night from 4 to 6
o ’clock.
According to Jensen, good material is
being developed in the light weights,
but more heavy men are needed. The
chance for a “dark horse” to annex the
championship is heightened by the fact
that varsity mat men are barred from
doughnut contests. The fraternity
championship will undoubtedly go to
the house turning out the most men,
especially in the heavy weights.
Wrestlers who are eligible for this
series who have been showing up well
at practice, according to Coach Jen
sen, are: Martin, uregon uiuD; and
Robertson, Friendly hall, 125 lb.; Rudd,
Fiji, 135; Millard, Delta Theta Phi,
Campbell, Kappa Theta Chi; Winnard,
Crites, Friendly, 145; Bliss, Kappa
Sigma, and King, Phi Delta Theta, 170;
and Cossman, a super-heavyweight,
200. Berry, at 115 lbs., is showing up
remarkably woll against heavier men.
Coach Jensen wishes to emphasize the
need of strict training and urges all
wrestlers to sign up at once.
More Men Applying at Hut for Work
Than Can be Given Help
Says Mrs. Donnelly
Seven foreign students have been
placed in the homes of the Eugene
townspeople, where they will work for
their room and board and a small cash
wage, according to Mrs. C. R. Donnelly,
T. M. C. A. hut mother. Of this num
ber, six are from the Philippine Is
lands and one is from India.
Students thus working their way
through school, are making, says Mrs.
Donnelly, from five to twenty dollars
a month besides their room and board.
One Filipino student who has just ar
rived on the campus is planning to take
correspondence study through the de
partment of extension teaching until the
beginning of the spring term when he
will register for regular work.
More students are applying at the
hut for work than can be supplied, says
Mrs. Donnelly. Student work of all
kinds is scarce and more especially
the longer jobs such as janitor work
and places in fraternities.
Hilarity Planned for Annual Affair
To Be Given February 11
Tentative plans for a “Senior
Bust,” to be held February 11, were dis
cussed at a meeting of the senior class
Tuesday night, in the “Y” hut. Gene
ral opinion seemed to be for no slack
in the general spirit of the affair.
Bill Collins, chairman of the invitation
committee, urged the seniors to order
commencement invitations immediately
from the “Co-op.”
Announcement has been sent to the
University of a trip to Italy, given
yearly to students of Italian Extrac
tion for educational purposes at the ex
pense of the Italian Government.
Formerly the men chosen were prin
cipally those from Eastern colleges but
this year there is also a chance for stu
dents in Western Universities to take
the trip. Any students on the campus
qualified to take this trip should see
Mrs. Fitch in Dean Dyment’s office for
i further details.
Board of Regents Told Millage
Alone Would Not Meet
All Demands
Buildings Now Needed by The
University Would Cost
Million and Half
‘1 There is no good reason why two
sources of revenue, taxes and gifts, in
stead of taxes alone, should not provide
for the support of our state institu
tions. ’ ’
This was one of the outstanding state
ments of President P. L. Campbell in
his report to the board of regents, which
met Monday.
The report, which outlined the pro
gress of the University during the past
year, in the matter of both enrollment
and standards, had ns its aim the of
ficial presentation of the matter of en
dowment and gifts, a campaign for which
was launched last fall.
After telling the difficulties under
which the University labors in order to
expand in accordance with its population,
the President said: “The serious prob
leni then, facing the University is that
of first making the best possible use of
the income from the millage tax and then
of inaugurating a campaign to secure
additional funds especially for buildings
and equipment, through gifts.” The al
umni will be the “principal reliance” in
this undertaking, he believes.
The completion and equipment of the
Woman’s Building, the Commerce build
ing, the two Education Buildings, Susqn
Campbell hall, and the remodeling and
equipment of the old women’s gym.,
uie open air gym. ana me oiu music
building, were all recounted as steps
in the progress of the institution during
the past year, according to the report,
which went on to show the need of more
money for development.
In this connection President Campbell
“The buildings now needed at the Uni
versity would easily cost a million and a
half dollars. The margins to be saved
from the millage tax, even with the most
drastic economies, can not provide that
amount for many years. The income
through increased state valuation can not
be counted on to provide it rapidly
enough. Additional appropriations are
clearly out of the question for a number
of years. The only alternative
left is to build up in the state a
keener consciousness of the blessed
ness of giving and to organize amongst
the Alumni and other good friends
of the University a systematic and
energetic campaign to raise funds
through donations. Beginnings of such
an organization have already been made,
and the hearty response everywhere met
with gives promise of rapid growth.”
Walter Berry, ’08, Heads Gas Engineers
Section in Bureau of Standards
Walter M. Berry, who was graduated
from the chemistry department of the
University of Oregon in 1908, has
gained considerable prominence in help
ing to clear up some of the problems
that confront the gas industry.
Upon leaving the University, Mr.
Berry went to work for the Portland
Gas and Coke company where he stayed
foi eight years learning the A. B. C. ’s
of the gas business. Tn 191fi, he be
came connected with the bureau of
standards in Washington and is now in
charge of the gas engineering section
of that organization.
Realizing that the manufacture and
sale of gas was tiecoming a business
intertwined with matters legal and poli
tical, he studied law and obtained a de
gree from Washington last year.
Mr. Berry devotes much time to
' study of gas standards, a safety code
and to utilization problems.
In a recent issue of the Gas Age
Record magazine, a page was devoted
to the explanation and results ob
tained from tests conducted by Mr.
Berry on gas appliances resulting from
the necessity of finding some method of
saving America’s waning supply of
natural gas
A maxium limit of three hour has
been set for undergraduate examinations
at the University of Illinois.
Veneta Brings
Lincoln Up to
Date; Eats Gas
Abraham Lincoln walked miles through
the wilderness to borrow books so that
he might slake his thirst t'or knowledge.
But Mr. Lincoln has nothing on the
Sigma Nu chapter when it comes
to the pursuit of knowledge- The
fraternity has employed the latest
word, in fact the very last word, in
automotive engineering to facilitate the
making of 8 o'clock classes. Veneta is
the name of the snorting, gas eating
monster that plows through the breaking
dawn to the campus.
Venta would draw attention at any
automobile show with the unique lines
of the model. One feature never be
fore relased by motor car manufacturers
is the combination coach and parlor car
scheme. The rear section is opon to na
ture with a box like attachment, which
when boards are laid across will accom
odate some dozen pledges. A wrinkled
fender is also another wrinsle in design,
which when coupled with the one-side
weather protecting curtains makes the
car the snappiest model on the road any
cold morning.
As long as Veneta functions grades are
in danger and the ones are very apt. to
be stacked up at the Sigma Nu house at
the end of the quarter.
Seniors, Juniors and Sophs Formulating
Plans for Series of Busts,
Lotteries and Jazz Jinx
The Frosh Glee to be held February
10 will be the starter of a number of
busts, lotteries, jazz jinx and other
forms of hair raising indoor athletics.
Lack of school holidays during the win
ter term will bo forgotten in the whirl
of coming events which will last well
into the spring.
Committees are busy working for a
Frosh glee that is to surpass any other
glee ever held. It will take place in
tho armory downtown. Everybody is
invited. Several more, get-acquainted
parties are also being planned to be
neiu (luring mo your. jv meeting or nil
chairmen of the various committees wilt
bo held Thursday night in Dean
Straub's office.
The sophomore lottery is being eager
ly anticipated by tho sophs, and further
plans for it and other class activities
are being worked out by members of
the class.
The members of the senior class have
plans for the senior play under way
and it promises to bo quite the biggest
and best yet, according to Leith Ab
bott, president of tho class. On Feb
ruary 11 the senior class will stage
another “bust,” and ns the junior jazz
jinx is to be the same night in the
men’s gym, the seniors will adjourn
to one of tho halls downtown.
The junior jazz jinx promises to be
even jazzier than ever, and in two
weeks Tommy Wyatt, junior president,
expects to have all committees orgnni
zed and working. The junior class is
entirely responsible for Junior Week
end and plans are being formulated as
usual until it is definitely known if
the week-end is to be altered.
Junior Week-end is by far the most
important event of the spring term,
but until the controversy as to its ad
visability and nature this year has been
settled, no definite plans will be made
by other than the junior class.
Several minor “busts” will take place
during the year, and in the spring
comes the big “annual bust” at the
Sigma Nu house. There will be the
traditional picnic in tho spring and
Commencement, the grand finale, in
which it is hoped a good many mem
bers will participate.
Members of Basketball Team to be

Constructive Suggestions for
Improvements Welcome at
Next Meeting
Disbandment Feared for Lack
of Trips; Fred Lorenz to
Manage Orchestra
A thorough and comprehensive analy
sis of the present situation as to ath
letics hero and possible constructive
suggetion will be taken up at the next
mooting of the Executive Council ac
cording to a plan of action outlined at
last night’s meeting of that body. This
plan of a thorough discussion was
adopted after tho point had been raised
by a member of tho council that it was
the duty of tho Executive Council to
secure n complete perspective of the
entire athletic situation at once; and
that in so doing it was probable that
many constructive things which can be
done to promote athletics in the Uni
versity would bo suggested.
Council Committee Named
Upon motion of tho Council, Presi
dent Bartholomew appointed a com
mittee to outline tho discussion and
take up the various phases of tho sit
uation which will bo brought out in
the next, meeting. This mooting of the
Council which will probably be of ftreat
importance and which may shape some
important policy which will bo taken
in regard to athletics, will take place
February 1.
A greater part of tho meeting last
evening was taken up in a discussion
of tho present status of the men’s glee
club although nothing of a dofinite na
ture was settled. John Stark Evans,
director of the club, Maurice Eben,
president of the organization and Clay
ton Ingle, a member of the Student
' ounni appeared ncrore tno executive
Council and presented the condition of
the club. It wns declared by these
representatives that the club had not
been given a chance to take any of its
proposed trips this year and that with
nothing further in view nfter the homo
concert on January 28, there was dan
ger of the organization disbanding.
Incentive for Men Sought
The matter wns referred to a com
mittee to confer with the graduate man
ager and outline a possible plan of ac
tion which will allow an incentive for
the members to keep on with their work
nfter the homo concert.
Graduate Manager Jack Benefiel out
lined the entertainment program which
was afforded the members of the Ore
gon football sipind in the Hawaiian
Islands. TTe declared that the trip
was a great success, not only from the
standpoint of the achievements of tho
football team on the gridiron, but from
the fact that, there was a considerable
educational value attached to such a
trip. The Executive Council instructed
Mr. Benefiel to write n letter of ap
preciation on behalf of the associated
students to the people of Hawaii who
had made the stay of the Oregon team
in the islands, such a pleasant one.
Orchestra Manager Resigns
The resignation of "Ernest Haycox, as
orchestra manager wns accepted. Fred
Lorenz, was elected manager of the
organization to succeed Haycox.
Discussion of finances took up the
time of tho session until tho mooting
