Oregon Daily Emerald
Saving Made in Classroom
Space Held Equivalent to
$150,000 Building
Range of Courses Declared
Greater; Afternoon Drill
Also to Help
“The two items of legislation, name
ly, the six-day week, and the changing
of military drill to afternoon periods,
which the faculty Colloquium is asking
the faculty to enact at its March meet
ing, represent on the part of a con
siderable group of the faculty an ef
fort to improve the conditions under
which student and instructor schedules
are made, and to solve the increasingly
perplexing problem of classroom space
in the University.”
The foregoing is the statement of Dr.
A. E. Caswell, chairman of a committee
appointed by the faculty to investigate
"the proposals which have been made to
establish a six-day schedule and to
change military drill periods from the
forenoon to the afternoon. Such sys
tems have been tried out in other large
institutions and have proved success
ful, savs Dr. Caswell.
Schedule-Making Facilitated
“The shift of drill to Tuesday after
noon, as one plan of the committee
calls for, will result in doubling the
number of classes available at 11 o’clock
and will probably increase the size of
these classes,” continued Dr. Caswell.
This change when worked in with the
Saturday morning classes will give the
student much more range in choosing
bis four and five hour courses, as most
of these long courses are to be sched
uled for morning periods. This plan
will greatly facilitate having labora
tory periods in the afternoon because
more of a student’s classes will be in
the morning.
“The proposed change to a six-day
week is a frontal attack upon the prob
lem of lack of classroom space in the
University,” said Dr. Caswell, “and
from statistics presented by Dean Colin
V. Dyment, it is apparent that the en
rollment on the Eugene campus will
average about 2500 students within the
next two years.”
Building Fund Limited
Only about $150,000 will be available
during the current year and $100,000
during the following year, for new con
struction and replacements, and these
sums, according to Dr. Caswell, will be
entirely inadequate to keep pace with
the growth in enrollment, and even
now, the pinch of space is beginning
to be felt.
Several objections to these plans have
been anticipated by the committee and
have been looked into. “The most
serious one, in my judgment,” said Dr.
Caswell, “is the possible effect upon
students earning a considerable portion
of their expenses. I believe that a lim
ited amount of outside work can be
done without serious injury to class
work and with pecuniary profit.”
Most of those who will be affected
by such a change, it was pointed out,
are the odd-jobs men, and the girls
who do housework. This would not be
such a drawback as it seems, because
the pro; osed change will enable stu
dents to schedule their courses through
out all six days and thus they will have
more idle hours in between.

Freshmen Men
Showing Signs
Of Reversion
Freshmen are showing a tendency to
revert to their former habitat, declares
Dean Straub in words couched not ex
actly in the above language. The re
version to species is manifesting itself
in the desire of many men of the pre
sophomore class to escort high school
damsels to the Freshman Glee to be
held in the armory this evening.
Where Dean Straub obtains his in
formation is one of the mysteries which
can only be learned by browsing around
the University campus for about 40
years. But it appears that many of the
freshman girls are complaining that
they must attend the Glee unescorted,
must hand over the silver high-sign of
admission without the company or the
assistance of their class brothers.
Now, to quote Dean Straub more
authentically: “Members of the frosh
class should take freshman girls, not
others. We want all the freshman
j girls to attend the dance.”
Coach Dumo Expects Hardest Battle
of Season for First Year Men;
Seven Players to Go
The frosh squad, seven strong, leave
at 4:30 this afternoon for the Aggie
camp, to play one of the hardest games
of the season. The trip is to be made
in the large Oregon jitney bus, which
will take both the Varsity and fresh
man squads over for the games. The
team will return to Eugene immediately
after the game tonight, and will make
another trip over for tomorrow’s game.
Coach Durno says the frosh will have
to play a harder and faster game than
they have at any time this year if they
want to beat the farmers on their own
floor, and with Blaklev in the rear
ranged lineup.
The seven men making the trip are
King and Crandall, forwards; Jost and
Poulson, centers; Aim, Haines and
Jones, guards. Jost has been playing
center regularly since the O. A. C.
games here last week, has been showing
up well in the position, and will no
doubt start the contest with the Ag
The team has been scrimmaging the
Varsity regularly this week in order
to get into condition for the games, and
have been working nicely, the Varsity
having to go the limit to hold the
yearlings in check.
Both the frosh-rook mixes at Corval
lis are to be played as preliminaries to
the Varsity games as the wrestling
matches are to be staged on Saturday
afternoon. This is a much better plan
than having the wrestling as a pre
liminary, as the matches take up too
much time and make the basketball
game late.
Baby Boy Bom While Father Gives
Lectures in Far Off Australia
Of much interest on the campus is
the announcement of a son born to
Colonel and Mrs. John Leader in Port
land, February 1. He has been named
Pervck. This is the third son in the
family, John and Michael being the
♦wo older children.
Colonel Leader was a conspicuous
figure on the Oregon campus during
the early part of the war. He was ef
fective not only in organizing the fac
ulty and students on the campus but
also in the home guard movement which
spread throughout this par* of the state.
After the war the Leaders moved to
Portland where the colonel is engaged
in business. At present he is on a lec
ture tour in Australia and New Zea
land under the management of the El
lison-White bureau.
Colonel and Mrs. Leader expect to
move to Vancouver, B. C., after the
I colonel returns from his trip.
Senior Women Caught Poaching;

Hope of Nation in Youth of
Country Communities,
Says Y. M. Man
America in Danger of Becom
ing Over-urbanized, Says
Assembly Speaker
College trained men and women, by
reason of the exceptional advantages
and opportunities which have been
given them, are best fitted for the
work of building up in the youth of the
country communities those qualities of
character and personal ability which
make for leadership, in the opinion of
A. E. Roberts, traveling representative
of the Y. M. C. A., who spoke at as
sembly yesterday on “The Challenge
of the Country.’’
The future leaders of the nation will
be drawn largely from the rural dis
triets, Mr. Roberts believes, and the
training of these young people for lead
ership constitutes one of the greatest
problems confronting America today.
Who is to assume the responsibility of
their training? Heroin lies the chal
lenge of the country, and it is to col
lege men and women that this chal
lenge is directed, according to the
Leaders coming from country
“The hope of the nation lies, I be
lieve, in the young people living in
the small towns and country districts,”
said Mr. Roberts, explaining that these
communities have exceptional resources
in material for future leaders.
“America is in danger of becoming
over-urbanized. The youth of the na
tion has been turning its thoughts on
the city. Every phase of city life is
artificial, unnatural and abnormal,” he
continued, pointing out the fact that
these conditions were not conducive to
the making of national leaders.
It should be the personal responsi
bility of the educated men and women
to see to it that these young people in
the country have the chance of an edu
cation, Mr. Roberts stated. Often, he
said, college people have the making
or the marring of these young lives,
largely in their power. The influence
which college people can exert is in
estimable, he asserted.
Morals Necessary to Leaders
“In this aftermath of war—in the
days of wrong thinking and crooked
dealing, college people should take their
place as exponents of reform,” said Mr.
Roberts. “This nation can make par
leys and international alliances, but
their efficiency will be made effective
and powerful only on the basis of the
character and moral integrity of the
national leaders.”

Decorations and Other Features Typical
of Yearlings on Program; Deans
and Governor to Be Hosts
The Freshman Glee will take place
at the armory tonight instead of at the
Women’s building, as was announced
before final arrangements were made,
and indications are that those who at
tend will have an interesting time.
The decorations and feature will be
strictly “different,” says the general
chairman. Their exact nature will be
kept secret until they appear.
Although it was not definitely known
until the first of the week that the
freshmen would have their festivity
this week, plans are progressing rapidly
and everything will be ready before
the appointed time, according to mem
bers of the arrangement committee.
Reports have leaked out to the ef
. feet that the best music of the dance
variety obtainable on the campus has
been hired. It has been definitely an
' nounced, however, that flowers1 and
I taxis are strictly taboo.
Patrons and patronesses will be Oov
; ernor and Mrs. Ben W. Olcott, Presi
, dent and Mrs. P. L. Campbell, Mr. and
i Mrs. George T. Gerlinger, Dean Fox
i and the deans of the schools.

Girls to Sell
Next Tuesday
Hearts and kisses are going to be
plentiful on the campus Tuesday, Feb
ruary 14. Not the kind of hearts that
are worn on the sleeve and sometimes
go pitty-pat, but rich, fat, sugar strewn
cookie hearts. Not the kind of kisses
that scandalize the chaperones and
make a man (and a girl) bewail the
presence of the bright lights, but large,
luscious taffy kisses in bright red paper
wrappers. Hearts and kisses alike sell
two for a nickel, four for a dime, and
so forth to the limit of the student
And, to be serious, it's all in a good

future—a magazine that will be repre

students may be proud, and they sav

Roddy, the pastor of the Riverside Con
gregational church of ITood River. This

ing for the community welfare, people
of various denominational preferences.

Coach Bohler and 8 Men Leave
for Corvallis at 4:30; Frosh
Squads Also to Go
Southern Trip to Start Next
Sunday; Same Players
to Be Taken
Oregon’s basketball team will open a
two game series with the Oregon Ag
gies at Corvallis tonight. Eight men,
Latham, Amlro, Roekhey, Zimmerman,
Burnett, Goar, Boiler and Edlunds, and
Coaeh Bohler will make the trip, leav
ing Eugene at 4:110 this afternoon, re
turning tonight after the game. They
will return to Corvallis tomorrow after
noon for the final game.
The freshman squad will accompany
the Varsity, seven strong, and will put
on the curtain raiser for the Varsity
contests both evenings. On Saturday
afternoon at .1 o'clock the Varsity
wrestlers will take on the Aggie grap
plors, and the frosh matrnon will try
conclusions with the rook strong men.
After tho two decisive drubbings ad
ministered to tho Lemon-Yellow bas
keteors last week by the Aggie tossers,
there seems to bo absolutely no loop
hole left through which to point a vic
tory for Oregon's basketball represen
tatives, for though the Aggies may not
be the conference champs, they have
an aggressive team with no little abil
ity in the basket shooting line.
Better uerense iiUteiy
However, in spite of the fact that
the (Jinnies will be played in the Aggie
camp, the scores should be loss one
sided than those played in Eugene, as
the team has had time to build up a
defense against the Hjelte-Gill combi
nation, which was such a vital factor
in last week’s games.
A bright rift in view of the recent
defeats at the hands of the Aggies and
slim chances for Oregon victory in the
coming series is the deeisivo wallopings
administered to the farmer five in their
double appearance in Eugene last year.
After trimming the collegians 30-25)
and 25-22 on the Corvallis court last
year’s quintet trampled on the Aggies
42-13 nnd 37-19 in the closing games
of the annual series.
Southern Trip Begins Sunday
On Saturday afternoon the men will
leave from the men’s gym at 3 o’clock
instead of 4:30 and will get their lunch
in Corvallis. Sunday night at 7:57 the
Varsity, accompanied by Coach Hohlor,
will leavo Eugene on the southern trip.
The Hamo men who make the Corvallis
trip will go south: Andre, Roekhey,
Zimmerman, Edlunds, Boiler, Burnett,
Ooar nnd Lathnm. The team will play
a two-game series with California at
Berkeley February 14-15 and with Stan
ford at Palo Alta on tho 17th and 18th.
The team is scheduled to return to
Eugene a week from Monday at 4:30

calaureate address for this year’s grad
uating class. This event will take

Dr. Bowman will be remembered as
one of the assembly speakers last term.
His was considered to be one of the
best addresses during the fall term.
