In preparation for Homecoming
the Freshman Girls Commission
will start making the small lem
on-vellow pennants today.
This work is voluntary, and from
the reports of girls who have made
them in the past, is actually more
fun than work.' All freshman wom

asked to report at the Bungalow,
and if possible bring a pair of
The pennants must be finished
by the end of next week. At least

The man who has been confined
to the small amount of space on

With the inauguration of the

decadent and depressed.
Every man who had a bathing
beauty on the windshield of his
car last summer now must have
a duck, a mule, a rooster, a lion
or a comic cartoon character
flaunting gaudily from' his back.
The ultra-smart thing to do,
however, is to parade a sign. “If
you can read this you are too

repartee on the back of one girl’s
slicker. “It looks like rain” and

Ex-24- Student Now Works
* For King Features
,Ted Osborne, ex-’24, is in New
York following the line of work
first practiced on the deceased
Lemon Punch. Ted, whose home
is in Santa Barbara, California
went east three months ago and
is conducting a column for the
King Feature Syndicate. He writes
of Lemon Punch and his present
“Lemon Punch—poor, dear, dead
departed Lemmy—has long since
been interred in the graveyard of
deceased periodicals, 'but since it
is customary to say nice things
about the dead, I will raise my
feeble voice in grateful eulogy.
Lemmy may have accomplished
very little for the campus but for
me the deceased furnished the first
foothold on the Tree of Journalism.
While in college Lemmy was really
my chief interest—if not obsession
—as can be verified by the prepon
derance of fours and fives oppo
site my name in the registrar’s
office. And when Lemmy passed
away I kept on writing and became
a daily cbriaistent contributor to
both ‘Life’ and ‘Judge.’ Three
months ago I got an offer to come
to New York and conduct a column
for the King Features Syndicate,
and here I am. The good die
young, and you can see that Lem
my ’s life while short, was not en
tirely in vain. Of course, I have
not. been in the said Tree of Jour
nalism long enough to become a
branch; in fact I have not decided
whether I am part of the foliage
or just some of the sap. . . Best
wishes to ‘Old Oregon,’ may its
Circulation increase until it has
blood pressure.”
This letter was received by Jean
nette Calkins, alumni (secretary.
Mr. Osborne mentions that another
alumnus Of Oregon, Hugh McColl
is in New York, working in an
accountant’s office and taking
graduate work in accounting at Co
lumbia. McColl hopes to get his
degree of certified public account
ing in a year or so.
Osborne’s address is 241 West
58 Street, New York City.
No more cancelled stamps on
laundry boxes. This is the warn
ing received at the University post
office from the main office down
Students have been sending pack
ages without removing the old
stamps from them and the officials
say that they will accept no more.
The cards attached to the boxes
must be cleaned of the used stamps
so that there will be no mistaking
them for new ones.
Many letters and packages for
students continue to come to the
University of Oregon instead of to
the street addresses. This causes
an unnecessary delay of a day as
the mail must be returned to the
main office down town before it
can be delivered.

fine arts department, who Friday
suffered a very severe attack of
pleurisy, has almost completely re

Construction of Building
Expected To Be Started
Without Further Delay
Sum Of $500,000 was First
Voted For Auditorium At
July Special Election
By a four to three vote of the
state supreme court, the $500,000
Eugene auditorium bond issue was
held constitutional, in a decision
handed down Tuesday.
The proposed auditorium is a
part of the gift campaign begun
by the late President P. L. Camp
bell. While the students would
contribute a student union, the fa
culty and alumni in a way yet to
be decided, the Eugene residents
were to build the auditorium by
voting a bond issue to meet the
Suit Is Filed
A charter amendment for the
bond issue was drawn up by the
Eugene council on May 1, 1924. A
special election was called on July
2, 1924, and the issued passed by a
plurality of 30 votes. However
on August 10, 1924 a suit was
filed by W. T. Campbell, a tax
payer of Eugene, to enjoin the
bond sale.
The action of Mr. Campbell was
based on the contention that the
election was illegal and .conse
quently null and void, because an
insufficient length of time had
elapsed between the passing of the
ordinance for the election, and the
“I believe the fundamentals of
the controversy, are settled, and
that there will be no further de
lay,” commented W. G. Hale, dean
of the law school.
Building Community Project
The auditorium, as provided in
the amendment, would be construct
ed as a community project, either
on, or adjacent to the University
campus, for public use.
If found feasible, however, the
building will be leased to the board
of regents of the University. If
this plan would not prove satisfac
tory, the auditorium would remain
under control of the common coun
cil of Eugene.
When the actual work of con
struction will begin is yet undeter
mined, stated Karl Onthartk, secre
tary of the University.
Last spring the faculty voted in
favor of mid-term grade reports,
not to be made a matter of perma
nent record, but to be made avail
able to students and to officials
interested in student welfare. In
the interest of scholarship and in
order to secure uniformity, the
scholarship committee will submit
the following' supplementary fno
tion at the faculty meeting today
at 4:15:
Sometime during the sixth
week of each term during the
seventh -week of the present term,
only, on account of the lateness
■of the present date) each in
structor will send copies of his
class rolls with approximate
grades to the dean of his school.
The dean will have carbon copies
made of these reports, will have
one copy posted on the depart
mental bulletin board for the use
of students and will have throe
copies sent to the registrar for
the use of the dean of men, the
dean of women and other faculty
or administrative members inter
There will also come up for vote
the two items submitted by the
scholarship and academic require
ments committees three weeks ago.
1. Authorizing instructors tto re
port as dropped students who dis
continue courses without permis
sion, and who do not comply with
the procedure for withdrawing; 2.
restoring the grade of condition.

Suggestion Declared Best
But Has No Signature;
Tickets Are Unclaimed
Award Is Made; Rules Are
Rigid Against Spirit Of
Rivalry Towards 0. A. C.
Of the several hundred Hlome
eomimg slogans submitted to the
committee, “Back—To Back Our
Oregon” was the one declared of
ficial today. In the opinion of
those making the selection, it most
nearly conformed to the more rigid
requirements imposed this year.
The Homecoming slogan commit
tee, of which Tom Graham is chair
man, at the beginning of the cam
paign sent letters to all heads of •
living organizations warning
against any use of the word “Ag
gies,” or its equivalent. Beference
to Oregon’s opponents in the Home
coming game would only promote
rivalry beyond sportsmanly ethics
if so used, the committee held. It
was suggested that suggestions re
late to the return of old grads, and
it was by this standard the final
selection was made.
In additibn to the oommitj^ee,
judges were Dr. James Gilbert,
Karl Onthank, Jeannette Calkins
and Prof. W. F. G. Thaeher,
No name was signed to the win
ning suggestion, Elam Amstuz, as- ■

The importance of intelligent1

Tiiley H. Allen, editor of the Hon

last night at a dinner at the Os

women’s professional journalism
fraternities and the journalism fa
culty were hosts. Mrs. Allen also
wasa guest of honor.
“This study of international af

a constantly more prominent and«
