campus, and they' will be given an
opportunity to subscribe. Kepro
sentatives will visit them today or
The Oregon Medical School at
Portland is also cooperating in the
sale of the books this year.
Price to Be Raised
“Anyone who expects to got an
Oregana later for five dollars, is
just out of' luck,” said Sam Kinley,
business manager. “A number of
students have said that they will
buy a copy when the book comes
out this spring. The price then
will be six dollars. Now is the time
to subscribe; students will save
themselves a dollar and help the
Oregana by doing so.”
Work on the book is progressing
satisfactorily. Deadline for copy
has been placed at this Saturday, by
Mary Benton, editor. All of the
portrait pictures have been taken
and most of the group pictures are
in. Section editors are already con
templating the work to be done on
mounting. As soon as the copy is
in, freshmen assistants will start, to
compile the index of names.

a fact. that all of ns with no (dosses

THAT Oregon’s present system
of hit-and-miss pledging, and the
resulting frequent releases from

THAT yesterday was a day of
jmiraeies; wo saw a freshman wear

(coat beamed a cheery hello, and a
prof allowed us 10 full minutes for
a so-called “ten-minute quiz.”
THAT another of the stately

will necessitate cutting down the
tree which has shaded the steps of
the dispensary for so long.
THAT a news dispatch tells us

R* U,R. ”, First Winter Term Drama,
Soon Ready for Dress Rehearsals
Finishing touches to the parts or
“B. T'. I?.”, the first drama pro
duction of winter term, will be made
today and tomorrow, so that, the
cast will be ready for dress re
hearsals early next week.
Arrangements for designing, stag
ing and lighting have been complet
es in advance for the play, which
will be given the evenings of Feb
ruary hi and 1". Due to an un
usually full program for the term,
students of the drama department
have worked intensely, holding try
outs and rehearsals until late every
evening. After all preparations for
“ R. F. It.” have been completed,
attention will be turned to “Lady
Windemore’s Fan,” Oscar Wilde’s
play, which will be produced a short
time after “ R. IT. It.”
“It is a murderous social satire,
doge in terms of the most hair
raising melodrama, and it hnH as
many frank appeals to the human
goose flesh as ‘The Bat,’ or any
other later day thriller,” was the
comment made in the New York
Herald when Oapek’s [day “R. U.
!i.” was produced there.
The Czechoslovakian writer has
woven into the extraordinary play
nil the satin’, wit and irony which
characterizes his Work. Though Ca
pck tins written some short stories,
poems and essays, critics are prone
to favor his plays, with emphasis
1; id upon “Rossun?'■) T'niversial
Robots”, more familiarly known’ as
“ R. U. R.” o /
The actiofl of the pla'y is centered
around a future date when most
human beings have died and have
been replaced by the more efficient
machine-made men, robots.
Tiie ttossum manufacturing con
cern tins made a vast fortune in the
production of robots because, from
this one island, millions of men and
women robots have been shipped to
all parts of the world, where they
have carried on the amount of work
that equalled, previously, the work
oone by two and one-lialf persons.
The secret and success of the robot
industry lies in the formula which
enables these imitation men to be
made without e notion or soul.
Dr. Frank Crane, writer and lec
turer, saiil of the play: “It is sig
nificant of the oneness of the world
and the unity of flip intellectual
life of modern civilization ihat the
freshest and most thoughtful play

Refuses Appointments
} o
| 20. — (P.I.P.)—Few people decline
! appointments to the IT. 8. Military
Academy at West Point, or the IT.
S. Naval Academy at A'nnapolis.
Word was recently sent to Frank
j Sauliere, a junior at Stanford, that
ho had born appointed to the Mili
tary Academy at West Point. He
refused the appointment. In 102.1,
before entering Stanford, lie had
been appointed to the IT. S. Naval
Academy at Annapolis, which ap
• pointnient he also refused.
Such action, it is believed, is
unique. The declinations to both
