Oregon Daily Emerald UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1922 VOLUME XXIV. NUMBER 39 SMALL AND FEW Bernice Altstock, President, Reports to League on Coast Convention ‘MORTAR BOARD’ WANTED s -V Organization of Upperclass . Girls to Promote Ideals Will be Considered At the second mass-meeting of Wo ^ men’s League, held in Villard hall yesterday, Bernice Altstock, president, gave a formal report of the Coast Wo men’s League convention, from which she recently returned. The convention was held at Salt Lake City, with rep resentatives present from all colleges and Universities throughout the middle west. The problems brought up and dis cussed at the conference were presented by Miss Altstock. “Round table’’ discussions were held, with a different representative in charge each day, and every problem concerned with college life was fully discussed and solutions offered and given their stamp of ap proval by able women. “The convention was wonderfully helpful,’’ said Miss Altstock, “but after all, I came back feeling that we really had the best organization of all. Some of the colleges are bothered with problems that we do not have to con sider, such as college spirit and morals of students.’’ The keynote of the conference was: “Inasmuch as women can set their own standards, it makes for a better freedom and a better re sponsibility. ’ ’ “Just Buzzing’’ Unwise 1‘ We must not just buzz, ns so many of us do,” said the speaker, “but when going out for activities, pick out that thing that interests us most and is f going to do us the most good in after life. ‘The point system,’ when com pletely worked out, will regulate ac tivities on the Oregon campus, and benefit the individual girl by ‘getting her into’ that which she most enjoys.” i The “Big Sister” idea, as furthered by the Convention, urges the upper class sister to remain a “big sister” throughout the four years of college, and to be a help other than socially. Girls in the same lines of study and having the same interests will here after be paired off. “Crooked politics,” was another problem of the conference, as reported by Miss Altstock. It was said that if women would put their stamp of disapproval on crookedness in politics, such practices would not meet with success. As a whole, the conference voted against anything in the nature of crooked politics. Faculties Draw Fire The failure of the ‘ ‘ honor system ’ ’ in other colleges was blamed on the faculties. Other college representatives felt that if the faculty would trust the students more the system would meet with success. This, however, is not one of Oregon’s problems, according to Miss Altstock. The forming of ‘ ‘ Mortar Board ’ ’ will be considered seriously by Women’s League. The Coast conference favored an organization of this kind, composed of ‘ ‘ all round ’ ’ upperclass women, to regulate college activities, uphold cam pus ideals, and in general carry out * everything that college stands for. Discussion will be held in Women’s League Executive Council before any action is taken, and the problem will (Continued on page four.) STATE ORGANIZATIONS WILL EMPLOY QRADS Employment Department Will be As sisted by B^prchants Says Fred Lorenz Results of the meeting of the com mercial club and chamber of commerce secretaries of the state in Portland last week were very favorable for the University organization, according to Fred Lorenz, secretary of the Univer sity chamber of commerce. The sec retaries throughout the state, he says, have promised to cooperate extensively in assisting the employment de^fart ment of the University chamber by furnishing lists of merchants in their respective towns, who are in a position to employ University graduates. A list of possible positions open for season employment, such as those open during the summer vacation period would also befurnished. Mr. Lorenz states that the merchants of the state ar& taking much interest in the em ployment of college students, as they see in it a chance to capitalize the in vestment for which they pay taxes. The University secretary urges that all those interested in securing employ ment for the summer months or per manently, file with him stating the na ture of the emplovment desired. FOLLOWHlEBIC RULES AND KELP Cancer Specialist Addresses Students at Assembly on Dread, Malady “Keep young and observe hygiene rules if you would avoid cancer,” was the advice given by Dr. Ernest F. Tucker, regional director of Oregon of the American Society for the Preven tion of Cancer, in an illustrated lecture given in Villard hall at the Thursday morning assembly. “When a sore doesn’t heal as it should, if you have any kind of a slight ailment that does not get well, if you have an unusual lump anywhere, especially on the breast, or if there is an unusual flow of blood—then look out! It may not be cancer—but it may. It comes out insidiously, though it is not contagious or hereditary, ” said the speaker in giving advise. Keeping young by the means of a good wholesome life, or an operation in case the disease had already started, were given by the speaker as the most successful preventatives for the spread of the malady. Dr. Tucker especially emphasized keeping young, saying it is a known fact that cancer preys only upon the old or middle aged. Doctor Tucker also laid great stress on avoiding the wiles of quack doctors who claim that they.are able to cure cancer painlessly. This can in some eases be done by the use of radium or the X-Ray but in others these methods will not succeed and they are, espec ially the radium cure, very expensive and treatments cannot be received anywhere. Death Bate Great In an effort to check the rapid spread of the disease, which at the present time, according to the speaker, adds more than 10,000 to the annual death list, the society has set aside a week during which concentrated ef* fort is made throughout the entire country to inform the people of the dangers of the disease and the best methods of its control and cure. The religious directors of the so ciety and other authorized representa (Continued on page four.) Campus Geologists Hold Smoker And Select Name for Building A building on the Oregon campus, nameless since its conversion into a geology laboratory at the beginning of this term, near the hour of midnight Wednesday night was named by bal lot. Hereafter the diminutive struc ture at the rear of the Administration building, formerly the postoffice, is to be known as Bock Hall. Some 20 names were submitted to the geologists and their guests to vote on and in or der to make a selection it was neces sary to take a second ballot, the names finally voted on being Quart* Wall, Bock Crusher and The Dump. Quartz Hall and the Bock Crusher ran a close race in the voting, and as a compro mise it was decided to christen the building Bock Hall. Thirty-five students and faculty members attended the smoker. One of the many interesting features of the evening was a story-telling contest be tween the three instructors in the geo logy department, Dr. W. D. Smith, Dr. E. E. Packard, and Dr. E. P. Hodge. The judges, Dean Dyment, Troy Phillips, and Phil Brogan, awarded the prize to Dr. Hodge. Other entertaining features of the evening were a blow-pipe contest be tween majors in the department, box ing bouts, musical numbers, including several selections by a vocal quartet, and a Philippine street scene staged by Dr. Smith and Hubert Schenck. Both of these men havq been in the Islands and their act represented a dialogue between two natives in stag ing a cock fight. Yesterday morning just before the assembly hour two Condon Club initi ates, Harold McConnell and Homer Wise, cooked flapjacks over a fire on Kincaid field. These neophytes were garbed in the apparell of ’Forty-niners. (Continued on page three.)

Spirit of Campus To Roam Rampant At Rally Tonight Rosebraugh Passes Word Reminding Students Big Game of Year Will Be Held Tc|norrow; Oregon Knights Will Decorate Special for Migration to Corvallis; Train Leaves S. P. Depot at 1 1 A. M. The word has been passed—not by enforced ‘ ‘ pep talks, ’ ’ not by stirring appeals to student sentiment, not by a^embly rallies, not by the printed sheet, but by Yell King Art Rose braugh in a brief message over the ’phone to a reporter in the Emerald ‘ * shack. ’ ’ “Just remind the ‘gang’ that the big rally of the year is to be hold this evening, starting at 7:15 from the cor ner of Thirteenth and Alder. It is not necessary to urge the students to be out—this is an O. A. C. game rally. The students know the rest. The band will lead the line of march and the students are going to show the coaches and the team that we ’re all behind them. ’ ’ It is the intention of the yell emperor and his regal assistants to confine the rally to the vicinity of the campus— providing the Thundering Thousand does not decide to migrate en masse into the business section of Eugene, carrying the message, ‘ ‘On to Corval lis. ” After the campus rally, the en tire student body will go to the Wo man ’s building where the coaches and probably a few of the players will give short talks. Roughneck garb is to be the uniform of the evening, according to the men who will lead the rally. A dance will be held in the Woman’s building after the pepfest has ended. Rosebraugh lias made it known that the students are to continue with the ralliers to the Woman’s building if they expect to take part in the dance or not. Yesterday morning a paper contain ing Corvallis advertisements and “pop talks,” supposedly for the purpose of arousing the Aggie fighting spirit, made its appearance on the Oregon campus. If the tone of this sheet is any indication, yie O. A. C. students are quite interested in the approaching game and Rosebraugh feels that it is necessary to give his vociferous crew a good work-out before moving into the Corvallis bleachers to make them more effective against the noisy thousands in the northern city. The special train of six or eight coaches which is to carry the student body to Corvallis Saturday for the game will be run into a siding near the Anchorage Saturday morning at 8 o ’clock and a committee of Oregon Knights will decorate the engine with bunting, pennants, and Oregon O’s. The Southern Pacific special will leave the Eugene depot tomorrow morn ing at 11 o’clock, arriving in the heart of Corvallis, two blocks from the cam pus, at 1:30. The round trip ticket on both the Southern Pacific, and Ore gon Electric, good over the week-end, has been reduced to $1.80. The Oregon students will serpentine to the Aggie field from the Andrews and Kerr con fectionery, near the S. P. depot.

UNIVERSITY IS BINDING 100 VOLUMES II MONTH New Department Working Full Time Since Last August More than one hundred books a month are being bound and placed on the University library shelves by the University Book Bindery. This inter esting department of the University printing establishment was added in August and has been working full time ever since. Whole annual editions of the nu merous newspapers received from all over the state and the larger cities of the country are bound and placed on file for reference. The majority of monthly magazines received at the li brary are neatly encased, labelled and placed on the reference shelves. Old worn books are carefully repaired and rebound. Many other valuable writ ten works are in the samo way pre served for the use and ready reference of students. The process of book binding is one of the old crafts that developed with the printing art. It requires a nice exact ness in the manipulation of materials and is capable of groat artistic de velopment and finish. “These books,’’ says S. I’aasche, tho bookbinder in charge of the work, “ajre bound with a view to durability mostly. We use a regular library lmckram which it is almosi impossible to tear, on the magazines. For the newspapers we use a thinner library cloth. ’ ’ Nearby a young Woman assistant was separating advertisements and paper binding from magazines with a sharp knife. The reading mutter thus separated is stitched together and rein forced with tape. “At Stanford University,” added Mr. Paasche, “eight bookbinders are employed all the time.” PAINTINGS TO BE SHOWN Plans Under Way to Bxhlblt Enlarged Schroff Collection, Soon Arrangements for the annual display of the paintings of Professor A. IT, Bchroff, director of fine arts, on the campus, are now being made, by the University of Oregon Hcliool of Art Details of the exhibition are to be ar ranged by W. K. Newell. No defi nite date has yet been set for the dis play, but it will be in the near future and the paintings will be hung ir some University building. Many new canvases were added t( the Schroff collection during the sum iner months while the artist was spend ing a vacation at his California studio ELECTION ANNOUNCED Condon Club of the C. M. 8. A.

I OREGON TEAM 10 BE III TRIM FOB Johnson and Latham Nearly Ready, and all Others Fit for Fray CHAPPY PRIMED TO GO Old Dependable Toe to be Used Against Confident Corvallis Crew If the Aggie football team is as con fident of victory as the Corvallis pub lications, they have the coming battle over nnd settled already, for the latest dope from their headquarters is that the Oregon footballers are to suffer a 21 to 0 defeat whon they meet the Ags Saturday on Bell field. The Oregon team is far from being as confident of victory as the O. A. C. men, but nevertheless they have the fight characteristic of all Oregon teams, so there should be no question in the minds of the Lemon-Yellow rooters as to which team will win, even though the Ags do outweigh . our men 20 pounds to the man. Injuries are Few The Oregon team was! rather de moralized yesterday by an attack of biliousness, but nearly all the men have recovered now, and according to Coach Huntington will bo in the best of condition for the fracas Saturday afternoon. Ward Johnson is the only nan with bad injuries at present, and a sprained ankle is the most that he can complain of. Hunk Latham still has a stiff knee, but it does not inter fere with his running, so he will start the game. The team has been going through the hardest kind of work in preparation for the game, and will be primed for it, as they all are eager to make up for the past two years of tie scores. Chappy Accurate as Ever N Chappy with his dependable toe will start the game at quartor, and was never more accurate than at present. He has already won two games this year by his ability to kick long field goals, so the Aggies will have to move faster than ever before if they stop this department of Oregon’s scoring system. Every man on the rfquad seems to realize that this is the most important contest of the year, for if O. A. C. should by any chance gain a victory it would effectively stifle auy claims which Oregon has on the Northwest championship. All present indications are that there will be a wet field at Corvallis Saturday, which will givo the home team and their vaunted 200 pound line an added advantage over the Oregon eleven. QUl Will Play Luke Gill is back in the O. A. C. backfield. In the Stanford game he failed to shine, but the O. A. C. dopestors have great hopes of him against Oregon. The Aggies are certainly confident of victory and have doped out every thing in their favor, forgetting only one thing in the excitement and pleas ure which they derive from their own work, and that is the fighting Oregon team. OIKLS TO MEET AT Y. W. The following girls are asked to meet at the Y. W. C. A. Bungalow at j 5:15 this evening: Camilla Anderson, Catherine Anderson, Vera Bellew, Edith Bewley, Vera Booth, Margaret Casad, Mary Chisholm, ltuby Cossman, Vada Davis, Lena Eastwood, Wanda Eastwood, Kathleen Gibson, Winnifred Gibson, Mario Gilkeson, Mabel Harlim, Jessie Hartwig, Mrs. lone Harkness, Dorothy Kent, Esther Kerlee, Gladys Kerlee, Alta Knipps, Lulu McLaughlin, Ruth McCord, Gladys Moeller, Wilma MacKeniie, Charlotte Nash, Lois Mortland, Jessie Olds, Mary Ottinger, Mildred Orr, Marie Porter, Esther Pike, , Olive Pruett, Betty Pesterfield, Ce celia Rosser, Violet Reed, Carrol Strichler, Velma Bhull, Sue Stewart, Ethyl Stone, Emily Stoneberg, Wanda Templeton, Lois Youngs.
