To Pay for Machine
Out with your shekels every
body and buy a tickot to the
gridgraph ! Ted Gillenwaters
says that if the student body
turns out and backs the showing
of the California-Stanford game
the net proceeds will pay the last
installment on the gridgraph.
At the meeting yesterday, Or
der of the O men agreed to sup
port the affair and further it as
much as possible.
This game is to be one of the
most important of the year and
the fact that it will be shown
on the gridgraph in minutest de
detail, making it possible for
everyone to follow it carefully,
is decidedly in its favor.
Tickets are on sale at all the
houses for 35 cents. Reserved
seats will be held for the foot
ball team and they will be the
guests of the student body in this
Dancing will start at 2:00 and
will last till 5:00. There will be

An invitation to tho national bi

delegates was read at a meeting of
the campus organization’s cabinet
Wednesday evening. The conven
tion will be held in April at Mil
waukee, Wisconsin.
The possibility of sending a rep
resentative from tho campus was
discussed, and methods for securing
finances for the trip were suggest
ed. No definite plans were formu
lated. Smaller colleges sometimes
send a delegate jointly by pooling
expenses. Miss Florence Magowan,
secretary, says that if the Univer

Rolf Klep Named Chairman
Of Executive Committee
„Oregon should have a literary
publication of some sort, was the
opinion of the 40 students and fa
culty who met yesterday afternoon
in 105 Journalism. An executive
committee, was appointed by Ed
Miller, who acted as chairman. The
committee consisted of Eolf Klep,
chairman; Philippa Sherman, Mary
J. Shelley, Douglas Wilson, Carvel
Nelson, Eobert Lane, and Glen
Burch. This group will look into
the matter more closely, and see
just what steps are most advisable.
The question of financial back
ing, which has been the unsolved
problem of all former literary mag
azines on the campus was discussed
by student members of the gropp
and Dean Eric Allen, of the school
of journalism. A committee form
erly appointed had drawn up a
dummy, based upon an amalgama
tion of the proposed magazine with
Old Oregon, the University alumni
publication. A majority vote of
those assembled-, however, preferred
an independant publication, pro
vided it could be made financially
possible. Otherwise they would
consent to the suggested obiliation.
The amalgamation would combine
the alumni news with stories, both
serious and humorous, cartoons,
news and articles of the Univer
sity, features, essays, and all gen
eral forms of expression. There

The last daub of paint had been
applied, the final piece of drapery
hung, every bit of decoration was
in its place, and the mess of debris
removed from the floor when a sigh
of relief went up from the group of
faithful sophomores who early this

The decorations and color scheme,
which is probably the most distinc
tive developed on the campus in
several years, combined with sub
dued lights, and pulsating music,
will provide a source of never end
ing happy remembrances which will
be haunting you in future years.
A. Lawrence Decorator
Clever programs which match the
combination of modern and futur
istic art in the decorations will fur
nish a motif for many a memory
book. Ab Lawrence, who has been
the guiding spirit in the origination
of the decorations and general plans
for the dance, is to be congratu
lated upon the marvelous effect ho
has obtained. .
A veil of mystery surrounds the
features which the committee is ar
ranging for, mysterious things gen
erally are good and this will not
be an exception to the rule, ac
cording to Bert Randall, general
chairman of the dance.
“Singing Feathers,” by Theodore
Ac-land Harper, is one of the 31
new books which have been added
to the general collection at the
library. Three others are, “Ama
teur Collector,” by Dr. George C.
Williamson; “Life of John Hay,”
by William Roscoe Thayer; and
“Taming of the Frontier.”
“Taming of the Frontier,” is
written by several authors. It is
made up of stories of western cit
ies. The story of Portland, entitled,
“A Pilgrim’s Progress,” is written
by Dean Collins.
A third edition copy of “Pino
cehio,” by C. Collodi, translated
from the Italian by Carol Della
Chiesa, has been purchased for the
Homer collection. It is a largo
book with' dark blue binding and
gold lettering. It is decorated
throughout with full page illustra
tions done in colors by Attilo hfus
sino. On the outside front cover
there is an illustration of “Pinoe
chio,” which is also done in colors.
The book was printed in Italy by
R. Bemporad and Figlio.

Conference To Plan Games
For Coming Season
Prospects for an active freshman
wrestling season are brighter this
year than ever beforo, according to
Earl Widmer, varsity wrestling
coach. He recently received an in
vitation to attend a conference of
high school and college freshman
wrestling enthusiasts ,to be held in
Portland, Saturday afteroon.
The purpose of the meeting, ac
cording to a letter to tho wrestling
coach, is to bring about a standard
ization of the rules governing this
class of competition, and to allow
the representatives of tho different
institutions to arrange their sched
ules for tho 1926 season.
Heretofore the Oregon freshmen
matmen have been hampered by the
lack of competition, the only meet
of the year being with the O. A. C.
rooks. Consequently, when these
men became eligible for the varsity
team, their inexperience proved, a
spvere handicap to the varsity as
well as to the men.
This year, however, the frosh will
probably meet several of the strong
er high school teams in the state,
Oregon’s future varsity teams will
be greatly aided, and the already
increasing interest in wrestling will
take a decided jump.
At the northwest amateur invi
tational boxing and wrestling meet,
held in Portland recently by the
Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club,
Leroy Oxford and Burl Betzer, rep
resented the University of Oregon,
and made a very favorable show
ing, declared the coach.
