Three Campus Occupations
In general the time and energy of the undergraduate is spent in
studies, in activities, in loafing or in a combination of the three. In
two of these three the student will put his chief interest, and the third
he will neglect.
If the student is to remain in college for any length of time he
must elect the first of the three occupations. No matter wdiat his
other interests may be, studies determine whether or not he stays in
college. No matter how influential he is, or how popular he is, the
first occupation is a requisite.
After he has discovered that classroom wrork is first in importance
he will have to decide which of the other two he is interested in.
He has time for but two. If he tries to carry on his studies and take
part in student activities he will find that he has little time to loaf.
But if his inclinations lead him to waste a great deal of.time even if
he does maintain passing grades he will be doing little in activites.
The college student who has a well balanced program has just the
right amount of outside work. Activities are beneficial even if only
for the reason that they provide an occupation for spare time and
for recreation. Two of the three occupations are usually inevitable
and if activities are left out there may be time to loaf.
To spend all the time either in study or in activities is almost as
bad as not to specialize on anything. The student who is popularly
known as a grind may be accumulating facts which go to make up an
education but he may be also neglecting to learn how to apply those
As serious is the condition of the student who neglects classes and
forgets study for activities. Studies should predominate, and the man
or woman who forgets the real purpose of college will come to realize
the mistake in later years.
On nearly every campus are found examples of those who special
ize in any one of the three occupations. At the beginning of the fresh
man year is the time when habits of study and of college life are
formed. That is the time when the decision should be made. Choose
the first two.
A University Band
At last the problem of securing a band which can be used for all
University functions seems to be nearing solution. The R. 0. T. C.
musicians, made almost useless last year by a ruling requiring uni
forms at all occasions, will appear in non-military clothes at the call
of the Yell King, runs the announcement.
Upperclass band men are to be encouraged to join by a minimum
of work in the battalion and the offer of the use of instruments
belonging to the department. The plan for a distinctive uniform of
“civvies” will do more for the band than anything else that could
be done. For some time the University has been without a band
which was of any practical use. The head of the military department
is to be commended for thus helping to provide the University with
such a necessary organization.
I lean Uymcnt s talk tonight at the 't . M. A. is a splendid oppor
tunity tor treshmen and new students to become acquainted with the
University and its traditions. The scheme of a scries of talks for the

Straub, advisor of the class of '2ti.

INFIRMARY KEEPING BUSY
Average Number of Students Cared
Tor Much Larger than Previously
It would seem as if the University
infirmary lias been trying to break all
I revious records in its increase of pa
tients this term when one sees that the
daily average of students cared for has
been between six and eight.
.Many of the patients are suffering
from colds or throat trouble. Phil

Several football men have met with
serious accidents in the past week. Troy
Mct'raw is now in the infirmary, having
been brought in from the gridiron Sat
urday with a wrenched knee, and Hil
ton Rose, who was only recently dis
charged from the infirmary, sprained
the muscles in his side as the result
of a football scrimmage.
1 Changes in Curriculum Make Work
Popular With Underclassmen
There are 57 students enrolled in pre
engineering this term. Ur. Caswell be
lieves the quality of the students is
better this year because there are more
upperclassmen. The juniors are plan
ning to remain in the work during their
senior year, instead of changing to oth
er departments as heretofore.
The curriculum has beeu changed
slightly owing to the change in fresh
man English. A course in written and
spoken English to be given during the
junior year, has been added and will
be compulsory for the present fresh
men. All drawing has been put in the
freshman year which reduces the course
to IS hours instead of 19.
REED MAN GETS DISTINCTION
Reed College, Portland. Ore.. Oct. 10.
— (P. 1. N. S'—Frank Flint, first Reed
man to receive the Rhodes scholarship
to Oxford, has boon awarded the Chan
cellor's prire for English essay, accord
ing to the announcement of the Oxford
commencement exercises recently re
ceived on the campus. To the best ofj
our knowledge, the prize has never be-j
fore been give,n to an American, and
is a very high honor open to any stu
dent of any college at Oxford. Flint t
has been taken on the faculty of Bal-;

department of English, according to

Singing of “Mighty Oregon” to
Be Uninterrupted By
Clapping of hands during the singing
of “Mighty Oregon” is opposed by Art
Rosebraugh, yell king. The question
whether or not to make noise during the
singing of “Mighty Oregon” came up
on the campus last year and resulted
in considerable discussion, but it was
finally decided to eliminate the mark
ing of time by the clapping of hands.
. This year there appears to be a misun
derstand concerning the singing of the
: University song and the making of a
thunderous roar at the same time. It
j is concerning this misunderstanding
that Rosebraugh has delivered his ulti
“This year the student body will be
expected to stand with heads uncover
ed, showing the same reverence for
“Mighty Oregon” as they would for
the national anthem, and hands will not
be clapped,” said Rosebraugh in an in
terview last night. “It appears to be
the prevalent opinion around the cam
pus that ‘March on down the Field’ is
a part of ‘Mighty Oregon,’ but this is
not so. Hands can be clapped when the
march song is sung, but not during the
singing of ‘Mighty Oregon.’”
Assistant yell leaders are to be se
lected by Rosebraugh next Saturday
during tht progress of the Oregon-Mult
nomah game. The yell king selects the
assistants, but the names must first be
approved by the student council before
the men are officially named.
According to Rosebraugh, the aspir
ants for positions on the yell staff will
be afforded ample opportunity to dem
onstrate their wares before the game,
between halves, and during the playing
period. He has sent a call to all parts
•f the campus asking that all who as
pire to the future position of yell king,
one of the honored and elective posi
tions in the student body grup, come
out Saturday “regardless of previous
condition of servitude,” as stated by
Rosebraugh. White trousers and shirt
and bow tie is to be the official habili
ment of a yell leader again this year.
This afternoon for the first time the
University R. O. T. C. battalion will be
given practice in systematic cheering.
Rosebraugh for 15 minutes will lead the
cadets through a repertoire of cheers,
which he believes will be effective in
acting as an antidote against freshman
yell ignorance during the big games.
Each week the yell king will instruct
the R. O. T. C. members for a period
lasting 15 minutes. It is expected that
the Thundering Thousand will be more
effective this year than ever before.
PLANS FOR CAMPAIGN
ARE TO BE DISCUSSED
Membership Drive for Woman’s Ath
letic Association Commences Latter
Part of the Week
Plans for the membership campaign
I of the Woman’s Athletic association,
which will be launched the latter part
of this week, will be discussed at the
executive board meeting of all officers
of the W. A. A. and heads of sports,
at 7:;>0, Wednesday evening in the li
brary of the Woman’s building.
A new system of awards will be
worked out at this time, to replace the
method of awards for varsity athletics.
At the national conference of the W.
A. A., held two years ago, and at the
i conference at Eugene last year, strong
i sentiment against participation in wo
men's varsity compelled the local
j W. A. A. to seek a new system of
awarding merits. The point system will
bo brought before the executive board
, for consideration. The only awards
which can now be given are letters for
class teams and cups to the winning do
Keen competition and enthusiasm
among the various woman’s organiza
tions are expected to prevail throughout
the year, according to Florence Jagger,
president of the association. Last year
the do-nut basketball and baseball
championships went to Hendricks hall,
while Kappa Alpha Theta was the win
ner of the do-nut swimming meet.
JUNIORS TO PLAN DANCE
Committees Will Be Named Tonight
When Class Meets for First Time
The first junior elass meeting of the
year will be held in Villard tonight at
S o’eloek for the purpose of announc
ing committee appointments and dis
cussing the junior dance, which will be
held at the men's gym Saturday night,
according to Jimmie Meek, class pres
Some clever ideas for the dance are
being considered by the committee in
charge, and announcements that may be
af a startling nature may be expected
later, say those in charge.
Bill McBride and his five piece or
chestra have been engaged for the Sat
urday night festivities of the juniors.
CLUB PLANS DISCUSSED
Newman Club Expects to Give Informal
Socials Friday Afternoons
Tentative plans for the term's pro
gram of activities were discussed by
the officers of the Newman club at a
meeting held during the past wuek. The
plans as outlined so tar include a series
of informal social hours to be given
on Friday afternoons in the club rooms.
The first of these was held last Friday,
and was attended by a large number
of both old and new members.
The first of the monthly communion
breakfasts is scheduled for next Sun
day morning at Newman hall. A din
ner dance in compliment to all new and
prospective members will be held on

All Catholic students and faculty
members on the campus, as well as all
those who have expressed a preference
for the Catholic religion are most cor
dially invited to attend all meetings
and social affairs of the club.
STAFF OF EMERALD
NOW BEING SOAPED
Names Probably Will Be Made
Known During First Part
Of Next Week
With approximately 60 persons trying
out for positions on the staff of the
Emerald, the task of managing editor
this fall is one of selecting the best ma
i terial and organizing the group of stu
dents of journalism who are to carry on
the recording of the campus news during
the remainder of the year. It is prob
able that the mast head containing the
names of the students who are selected
for staff positions will appear for the
first time during the earlier part of next
Several of the new students now doing
reportorial work on the Emerald have
been on the staffs of other college papers,
but the lack of “background” for their
stories is a serious handicap to their
writing at present. The news editors be
lieve that when the strangers from other
schools become acquainted with the Ore
gon campus the news machine will run
much more smoothly.
According to Kennth Youel, editor,
plans are now being made for the start
of several staff contests which will bring
the element of competition into the work
of the young journalists working on the
Emerald. Prizes will probably be offered
for the greatest number of news “tips”
during the term, and other prizes will be
given to promote the efficiency of the
work of the daily editors, the night edi
tors, and the news gatherers.
The organization of the staff is in
the hands of the managing editor, Phil
Brogan, who has called a special meeting
of all persons trying out for places on
the staff to be held this afternoon at
5 o’clock in room No. 4 of the journal
ism ‘ ‘ shack. ’ ’ Brogan has announced
that “beats” will be laid out this week
and that reporters will daily be assigned
to cover every department in the Univer
sity where news is likely to break. The
managing editor while on the lower staff
of the Emerald was interested in re
porting the activiities of the various
science departments and this year he
intends to get in touch with reporters
j versed in the sciences, who will be in
j strueted to keep in touch with the differ
j This year for the first time the Em
■ erald is to initiate the policy of giving
S“by-lines” to reporters writing good
stories. It is believed that by prefacing
the artifle with the writer's name better
stories will be written. Members of the
; staff who are consistent in their work
and who have been honored with “by
lines” several times will probably be
placed in a “crowned circle,” according
to Youel. It is planned this year to keep
on the staff as many of the star reporters
of other years as possible. In the past,
members of the staff who have been
, elected to Sigma Delta Chi and Theta
Sigma Phi, men’s and women’s national
j journalism fraternities, have usually quit
; writing for the Emerald, but this year
\ouel hopes to have this group get back
At the meeting of the tentative staff
this evening, it is planned to smooth out
many of the wrinkles which are at pres
mt resulting in a little difficulty and
make the Emerald more efficient as a
carrier of the campus news.
NEW SORORITY ORGANIZED
Twelve Nationals and Two Locals
Now on Oregon Campus
j Organization of a new sorority, Tau
N'u, was announced yesterday. This is
the fourteenth house for girls to be or
ganized on the Oregon campus and is
the second local sorority here. Eleven
girls are charter members of the group.
I The new sorority at present is being

tatively organized last spring, but no
information concerning the sororitv was
given out until yesterday.
HOME EC DEPARTMENT HELPED
An addition to the home economics
j department which will add much to the
efficiency of the department is a Lor
rain oven, of the most modern type. It
is used for general utility purposes, and
will be of especial value to the food
problem department as an aid in work
ing out individual problems, as much
stress is laid upon individual work.'
With other equipment and rearrange
ment the school is now fairlv complete.

New Main Building Nearly
To Be About Nov. 1
Matriculation and registration in the
University of Oregon medical school
were completed yesterday and classes
began this morning. The total enroll
ment in the four years is 193, an in
| crease over last year’s attendance of
more than 30 per cent. Because of the
i limitation in the size of classes in order
| to maintain the highest standards there
I were about sixty prospective students
j who were unable to gain admission. The
new building of the medical school, the
main body of Mackenzie hall, is prac
tically completed, which enables the in
struction of a hundred and twenty stu
dents of the first two years without
crowding and with unexcelled facilities
for research and teaching. The regis
tration this year has representatives
from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Cal
I ifornia, Nevada, Montana, Utah, Iowa,
Minnesota, Missouri, Michigan and Sas
katchewan. Applications were received
from more than twenty states.
The grading of the campus and the
paving of the court and approach are
proceeding rapidly, and on or about
November 1 the building will be formal
ly dedicated. Additional rooms have
been added to the Portland free dis
pensary, which is operated jointly by
the People’s Institute and the medical
school for the purposes of providing
medical care for the sick and crippled
who are unable to pay and for purposes
of teaching medicine. This enables
daily clinics from 8 a. m. to 4 p. m. in
medicine, surgery, obstetrics, eye, ear,
nose and throat, diseases of children
and diseases of women and in dentistry.
