Community Singing of Oregon
Songs Will Be Feature
Edward Bailey, graduate of ’13 and
for three years right tackle on the Ore
gon football team, will be at the first
meeting of the A. 8. O. TJ., Thursday
morning, to tell University students the
meaning of Oregon spirit and to im
press upon them the opportunities of
living up to the Oregon traditions in
the future. Bailey was also a track star
while on the campus, and for three
years was on the all-star northwest
eleven, and during his senior year
served as president of his class. He
is a Lane county representative to the
state legislature and very acive.
Bailey’s theme is to be the inspir
ing note throughout the assembly.
Shy Huntington is going to give a few
words on football; Bill Hayward will
tell all he can about track for this
year; and Virgil Earl will make a talk
on his new footbal school.
“One of the biggest features of the
student assemblies for this year, we
hope, will be the musical part of the
meetings,” said Claude Robinson,
president of the A. 8. O. U. “We want
to make the assemblies as interesting
as possible, so for his coming Thurs
day we are undertaking the first de
velopment of our plan and will have
some time given over to community
singing, under the direction of John
Stark Evans,” he said. It is probable
' that there will be an Oregon song or
two sung by the men’s glee club quar
The first report on Homecoming will
also be given at the assembly; by Had

TO START OCTOBER 15
Organizations to Schedule Practice
Hours with Hank Foster; Four
Divisions to Vie for Honors
Do-nut basketball for men starts
next Monday, October 15. Practicing
must be done immediately if the vari
ous teams desire to be in shape for
the opening games. Hank Foster is
in charge and hours of practice should
be arranged with him.
Each participating organization must
send in a list of its players within
two days in order that proper credit
may be given.
“The floors are open at all hours dur
ing the day,*’ says Foster, “and if any
team wished to practice, it may do so.”
He further states that any man prac
ticing or playing with a do-nut team
may substitute that for his regular
gym work, provided the practice takes
place the same day as his gym class.
He must report to his instructor if
such change is made. Any physical
ability men may sign for basketball be
ginning next week.
The two teams placing highest in
each of the four divisions will compete
for the championship in a final round
robin, and the teams placing low will
play for their position in the ranking,
thus eliminating a too heavy schedule

U. OF C. THANKS OREGON
FOR OFFER OF RELIEF
Those Affected by Recent Fire Able
to Face Loss Without Great Need
of Help, Says Letter
The following letter has been re
ceived by Jack Benefiel, graduate man
ager of the Associated Students, upon
the offer to assist the University of
California in the emergency caused by
the recent fire in Berkeley:
“Thank you for your letter of Sep

students of the University of Cali
fornia and offering assistance in their
“The fire, of course, came as a shock
to all of us, and it has wiped out one
of the most beautiful residential dis
tricts of Berkeley. Fortunately, the
majority of those people who lived in
this section are able to face the catas
trophe without great need of outside as
sistance, and I am sure that the pro
gram of rebuilding will be carried out
immediately. Everyone has taken the
catastrophe in good spirit, and I do not
believe that we shall have to call on
your for other assistance than the
moral support which you have already
offered. I want to thank you again
for your kind offer, both on my own
behalf and on behalf of the Associated

Extends a hearty welcome to the students and faculty of the
university and a courteous invitation to come and visit us at our
new sales rooms.
Our great interest in the University has brought us to Eu
gene and we want you to have the same interest in us. We are
still “Frosh” in a sense, if one counts the time that we have been
here; but if one counts the interest we have already taken and
are intending to take in the activities of the University, we could
be considered in the class of 5-year seniors.
Remember, we will be glad at any time to be of service to
the faculty and the students.
