Our campus seems quite desertec
now that the week-end guests havi
departed, and such a short time re
mains until Thanksgiving that w<
will scarcely have time to get set
tied in the regular routine agaii
before vacation. The past week
was quite merry with an unusuallj
large number of dances due to Arm
istice day vacation and the many
activities of Homecoming.
The coming week-end will be the
last one open to house dances this
term so that many are on schedule
for Friday evening, while Saturday
is being reserved for the Sophomore
informal. Perhaps one of the lar
gest teas of the week will be that
for which members of Alpha Phi
will be hostess Thursday afternoon
as a special courtesy to Mrs. Henry
Augustine, their housemother.

At an informal dinner for which
Miss Frances Pierce was hostess
last week, ’the engagement of Miss
Virginia Owens was announced to
Mr. Richard M. Lyman.
In the lovely corsages of vio
lets and roses at each place were
tiny cards revealing the secret.
A large corsage of orchids and
roses and the Phi Gamma Delta
fraternity pin of Mr. Lyman were
presented’ to Miss Owens.
Miss Owens, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Owens of Port
land is a former student here and
Mr. Lyman, a senior here this year,
is affiliated with Phi Gamma Del
ta. His home is in- Cleveland, Ohio.
The wedding will be an event of
Last week at the Gamma Phi
Beta and Sigma Chi houses an
nouncement was made of the en
gagement of Miss Berenice Davies
and Mr. George Bronaugh. At the
Gamma Phi house announcements
of the betrothal were pasted on
the underside of brilliantly-colored
autumn leaves and held at each
place by small candles.
Miss Davies will graduate here
at Christmas. Mr. Bronaugh at
tended college here and is at pres
ent in Washington, D. C., where
he is completing his last year of
law at the George Washington law
.school. The wedding will occur
during the late summer.
Additional guests -at Ae Gamma
Phi house were Mrs. Jerry Bron
augh and Mrs. Charles Hardy,
mother and aunt of Mr. Bronaugh.
Last Saturday in Portland Miss
Helen Gripper, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. C. Gripper of Pasa
dena, California became the bride
of Mr. Jack Sullivan of Spokane.
Both attended college here, Mrs.
Sullivan being a member of Kappa
Kappa Gamma and Mr. Sullivan of
Bachelordon. Mr. Sullivan is in
business in Spokane and after a
short wedding trip they will make
their home there.
Of much surprise to her friends
on the campus was the announce
ment of the marriage of Miss Viola
B. Harris of Lebanon and Boss
Jackson of Fresno, Calif. Although
the wedding occurred September 12,
it was not made known until Sun
day. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson were
married in Yreka, Cal. The bride
is a sophomore in the University
and a pledge of Sigtaa Beta Phi;
her husband formerly attended O.
A. C. They left Sunday for Ash
land, where Mr. Jackson is em

TO USE GRASSHOPPERS
Grasshoppers, not ordinary ones,
but creatures almost three inches
long, light brown in color with bril
liant Tose markings and wings, will
be the subjects for experimentation
in the biology class next week.
The class has just concluded the
study of crayfish which is a cou
sin of the grasshopper and very
similar in structure having jointed
appendages and large bodies. These
long grasshoppers are shtort-lived,
existing only a few months after
maturity. They are sluggish and
unable to fly because their bodies
are heavy and their wings are ex
Three thousand locusts which are
natives of Florida, have just been
received by the department. They
are probably of the variety which

except locusts and wild honey. Ir

are pests living entirely on vege

Yocom, of the biology department
WINTERER MADE HEAD

Steele Winterer was elected pre;
ident of the Officer’s Club of th
R. O. T. C., advance course stu
dents, at a meeting held Tuesdaj
afternoon in the R. O. T. C. bar
racks. A1 Sinclair was elected sec
It was decided at the Meeting
that the Officer’s Club would in
vestigate the possibility of organ
izing a sponsor system for the R
O. T. C.- unit here. This means that
each company would elect some girl
on the campus who would act as
sponsor for the company and would
be honored at the Officer’s Ball in
the winter term and at some of the
parades in the spring term.
Probably one parade would be
given in honor of the sponsors and
they would be the official review
ing staff. One girl would be elect
ed sponsor for the whole battalion.
This would be the highest honor of
the group. This system is in vogue
at Washington State College, Ne
braska and a number of eastern
colleges and seems to be very pop

HIGH SCHOOLS PUBLISH
17 LATIN NEWSPAPERS
“Seventeen Latin newspapers are
published by high schools in the
United States,” says Alfred Pow
ers, assistant director of the exten
sion division, who is making a col
lection of them for the division.
“Most of the papers are mimeo
graphed, but some have reached the
dignity of print.”
“Nuntius,” the “News,” is the
most popular name for the news
paper. Other names used include
“Nunc et Hanc,” “Fragmenta La
tina,” “Lingulaca,” “Latinus,” and
The newspapers, according to Mr.
Powers, are published by the Latin
departments and students of t)xe
high schools as a project to stimu
late interest in the value of the
study of Latin. So far, he says,
there is no Latin paper published
in Oregon, but Pendleton high
school is planning to start one.

NEW FINE ARTS CLUB
Art Department To Appear
In Smocks Jury Day
The first informal party spon
sored by the newly organized fine
arts club on the campus was held
in the art and architecture building
last Wednesday between 8 and 10
o’clock. About 30 members were
present, some in costumes, others in
campus clothes. Mr. and Mrs. S.
H. Schroff and Mr. V. O. Hafen
acted as (patrons and patroness.
Stunts and dancing were features
of the evening. Cider, doughnuts
and cakes were served as refresh
This was the first meeting of the
club since it was organized. At that
time Miss Victoria Avakian pre
sented a scheme for th<3 designing
and making of smocks for the whole
department aid it was accepted.
The idea submitted was that the
smocks as a whole should represent
the spectrum with one color for
each department and different
shades of that color for each class
enrolled in that department. It was
decided that red should be the color
for fine arts, yellow and green for
normal art, and blue and purple
for art and architecture.
Black smocks will be worn by
the instructors with the colors of
their respective departments upon
Orders which include smocks for
the students and instructors and
those visitors who will judge on
Jury Day will soon be taken, and it
is expected that they will be com
pleted and ready to wear in time
for Jury Day which will occur near
the beginning of winter term.
The next meeting of the club will
be December 1, in Mr. Schroff’s
studio where they have been invited
to gather and discuss the business
and interests of the club and other
Officers of the organization are:
Bhona Williams, president; Mar

, SENIOR COMPLETES
Mary Conn, a senior in the school
of journalism, recently completed a
history of the newspapers of Laike
county which is being printed in
Oregon Exchanges for this month.
Newspapers are traced in Lake
county from the Stato Line Her
ald, started in 1878, up until the
present. This is the first of a num
ber of articles to be printed in Ex
changes concerning the history of
Oregon journalism, compiled by stu
dents in reporting classes last year
An article by Prof. Glenn Hoover
of the economics department also
is printed in the November issue.
The article gives a negativo an
swer to the question “Does either
duty or economic interest lead one
to buy at home what can be bought
more cheaply elsewhere 1”
Four New Books Are Added
To Rent Collection
Four new books have been added
to tbe rent collection at the libra
ry. They are, “Christina Alberta’s
Father,” by H. G. Wells; “Fire
crackers,” by Carl Van Vechten;
“Hunter’s Moon,” by Ernest Poole,
and “Elder Sister,” by Frank Swin
. nerton. This makes a total of more
than 50 books in the collection.
Thirty-three of the 67 books most
read by the students are devoted
to fiction and the remainder to
philosophy, science, history and poe
try. Mrs. Mabel McClain, libra
rian, reports a decided slump in
reading for the last three weeks.
This slump she explained does not
apply to any one type of literature
or to any particular group of stu
dents. The whole student body is
reading less of everything.

REPORTED MUCH USED
Results in other schools show that
the psychological tests, which were
given to University of Oregon
freshmen this fall, are about as
good a means of predicting Uni
versity scholarships as lias been
developed, says Prof. Howard R.
Taylor, of the psychological depart
ment, who is in charge of the test
“The correlations of the psycho
logical tests prepared by the Am
erican Council on Education with
average scholarship in various uni
versities where the tests were used
in 1924 indicate that they are
among the best so far worked
out,” says Professor Taylor.

This means that those who made
a high score in the tests showed a
fairly definite tendency to stand
high in scholarship.
“These four tests were retained
in the 1925 addition, which we gave
at Oregon,” explained Professor
Taylor. “These tests are so similar
to those of 1924 that we can ex
pect a high score in each of the
four tests to indicate average scho
larship in about the same degree as
the like tests given in 1924.”
