Travel on Water Is Made Safer
By Addition of Seven Rescuers
Life does get safer and safer, pessi
mists to the contrary notwithstanding.
Traffic on the streets may be more
dangerous than of yore, due to whiz
zing automobiles, but traveling over
water routes is much, very much, less
hazardous than formerly.
All of which is by way of saying
that seven life-savers have been turned
out as finished products by the wom
en ’s physical education department.
Not the “life-savers” that certain types
of persons carry about in the pockets,
but what we ’re trying to say is that
seven women have passed the Red Cross
life-saving tests, and henceforth can
Tcseue unfortunate persons precipitately
precipitated into water.
The girls now prepared to prolong
life in the aforesaid manner are: Vio
let Reed, Florence Baker, Irene Per
kins, Gertrude Houck,' Christine Heck
man, Janet Wood and Viona Pyritz.
But this is just a beginning, accord
ing to information gleaned from Miss
Carolyn Cannon between her vivacious
dashings upstairs and down between
classes, for about 225 women
are now enrolled for swimming. Miss
Cannon, attired in a swimming suit
with a Red Cross life saving emblem on
the front, teaches five of the seven
classes offered, one of which is an ad
vanced class of about 20 girls which
will begin soon on the life saving tests.
The idea of a women’s life saving
corps at Oregon was originated in 1920
by Valiere Coffey, Dorothy Reed and
Marian Nicoli, and since then 32 girls
have been added. These tests include
four ways of carrying drowning or tired
persons; breaking four grips, turning
after break, bringing subject to sur
face and starting for shore; disrobing;
recuscitation, and all practical infor
mation for saving drowning persons.
GIRL’S RIFLE MATCH
WITH 0. A. C. DELAYED

From Shooting; May Interfere

shooting against 0. A. C!., is doing very
good work, according to Sergeant Ed

U. fv'C., drill, the match was somewhat
The highest.score was made by Kath
erine Cressman, who shot 1164 out of a
possible 400. I’aloma Randleman and
Ruth Gregg have tied for second place,
both shooting .462 out of a possible 400.
The girls have been showing great
interest in the contest and Sergeant
Conyers believes that they hajte a
gooil chance to win.
Those shooting on the team are:
Wave Anderson, Margaret Seymour,
Pnlouin Randleman, Edna Largent,
Emily Houston, Ruth Gregg, Helen
Newland, l’enrl Lewis, Katherine Cress
man and Frances Rose.
“The men have not been turning out
nearly as well as the girls,” said Ser
geant Conyers, “and if they do not
begin to show more interest Oregon will
not have much chance of winning the
intercollegiate match which is to be
completed May 15.” He believes this
lack of interest is due to too many
other activities going on, and a ten
dency to put off shooting until the i
If any of the men who have been j
chosen for the team, for any reason
cannot shoot, Sergeant Conyers wishes
them to do him the favor of letting him
know so that he may check them off. \

VOLUMES IN PAST YEAR
16,728 Books Added During Year Ac
cording to Statistics; Pines for books
Amount to $974.62
A statistical summary relating to the
business of the University library re
cently compiled by M. H. Douglass, lib
rarian, shows marked increase in the
volume of business transacted by the
library during the past year over that
of previous years.
During the' year there were added to
the library 16,728 books, by purchase,
gift and rebinding, bringing the total
number of volumes in the library up
The total number of volumes issued
to readers during the year numbered
258,071, an increase of ,'S!) per cent, over
the year 1921, and an increase of 263
per cent, over the year 1918. These
figures include books issued in the ref
erence, reserve, circulation and busi
ness administration departments of the
A financial summary included in the
report shows the total amount expended
for books, periodicals, binding, equip
ment, postage and student assistants
to be $18,686.72. Of this amount lib
rary fines which were spent for books
constituted $974.62. Proceeds from the
rent collection purchased 106 books for
the library, the rent collection being
the books which circulate at five cents

length of time that a book is kept, thus
making it possible for it to be read by
a greater number of people, the report
ABOUT “HAPPY ENDINGS"
In most stories and plays, the “hap
py ending” is achiev'd through the vir
tue of the hero or heroine. But in Har-,
old Lloyd's new seven-reel Patheeom- |
edv, “Safety Last,” which is being!
shown now at the Heilig theatre, it is
deception that is responisble for the
blissful fade-out of the picture.
Although Harold practices the most ;
frightful deception on The Girl, played I
by Mildred Davis, it actually brings
about his salvation.

ORDER OF 0 SPATS FROSH
Punishment Given for Violation of
Campus Tradition; New Wallop Used
The Order of the O held another
unique little session on the library
steps. The occasion was for the bene
fit of some ten or twelve yearlings who
had violated and scorned several of the
choice campus traditions such as no cap,
too cocky, mutilating the beany, pig
ging at athletic events and attending
functions where their lowly presence
was not requested. Punishment, in the
form of lusty wallops from the letter
men, was “relished” by the yearlings.
The O men have originated a new wal
lop, the machine gun spat or something.
It lands once and before the frosh has
time to recover for the next jolt the
second spat lands with telling effect.
Some of the culprits took their lunch
at the mantel.
