Ac if O. S. C. Hall Units Bear Regents’ Names » OREGON STATE COLLEGE, Cor I vallis, Oet. lti.—(P.I.PO—The new ■5460,000 men’s dormitory, here was thrown open for inspection to all recently.

Oswald West ToTalkToday At Guild Hall Ex-governor Speaks for Democratic Nominee; Everyone Is Invited Reconciliation of Dry And Wet To Be Feature Former Regent Noted as Friend of University Democrats on the campus are en tertaining Oswald West, ex-governor of the state of Oregon, who will speak in the Guild theatre at four o’clock today. He is appearing here under tjio auspices of the Smith College league. One o£ the Oregon alumns spoke of Mr. West as a regent who could really “rege,” and ns a still power ful speaker and leader. This opin ion was given by George Goodall, Oregon graduate and former football star, recently as he was reminiscing over his acquaintanceship with Mr. West while lie was governor. West, says Goodall, would not have any but young regents on the board, young men who could stay up all night if necessary to get the student viewpoint. Many Expected to Attend Ex-governor West’s interest in the University, as well as the fact that he is speaking with the idea that he is satisfied with reconciling his support to Smith with his views of prohibition, is expected to bring many of the members of both parties and especially the students to hear his speech. West, who has been quoted as a connisseur of good horses and good candidates, is still an active and vigorous leader. In his dealings in politics both before and after his governorship he has always been a commanding figure in national politics. Exposes Land Fraud In his expose of the fraudulent land deals in Oregon with the help of Francis J. Hedney, an attorney who was appointed by the govern ment to handle this case, lie' dis closed the practice of selling forged land certificates of the state land board in the middle west where they were being taken on good faith. Hugh Biggs, president of the local Smith College league, will be chair man of the meeting this afternoon, and Fred Fiske, a regent of the University of Oregon and an ex senator from Lane county, will have charge of the meeting at the court house in the circuit court room at eight o’clock this evening. The meeting will also bo open to all stu dents of the University and the people of Eugene and Lane county. Republicans To Hear Colonel James Drain On Thursday Evening Colonel Janies Drain, former na tional commander of the American Legion, will speak Thursday evening at 7:30 o’clock in the Lane county court house. All Oregon students are invited by the Campus Republi can club. Colonel Drain is here on a speak ing tour of the country under the auspices of the Republican Nation al committee. Drain has won recog nition throughout the United States for his political addresses. The address will be of particular interest to students of political science as it will include opinions on national and local governments. The Campus Republican club plans to invite Colonel Drain to speak to the Oregon students Thursday in Guild hall at 4:00 o’clock. This is the first of a series of addresses arranged for Eugene by the Repub lican National committee in co-op eration with the Republican organi zation on the campus. Hoover Has Safe Lead; W ill Probably W in Vote Hoover will win the Emerald’s straw election if he keeps up his steady, daily gain until Thursday night, when the balloting ends. With but two days left, it will be hard for Smith to overcome Hoover’s 3d per cent lead. Figures for the four candidates named on the Emerald ballot now stand: Hoover 278, Smith ISO, Thomas 14, and Varney 1. Opinion on the Sunday movie question runs: For 3S2, against 84. The ballot bos in the main library will be there until 6 p. m. Thursday, when the final count will be taken. Reserve Libraries Issue More Books Number of Questions Asked Shows Increase Are students studying harder this year than Inst? If statistics gath ered from the reserve libraries for the first two weeks of the term are used as a basis of comparison, it would seem that, students really are starting the new school year right by studying more. The Condon reserve library shows a slight decrease the first two weeks of this year below last year, but averaging these figures with those of the English history reserve on the third floor of the old library and the business administration re serve on the third floor of the Com merce building, we find that 1,105 more books have been issued this yea r. On the other hand, the number of books taken out over night show a decrease of 741. Students have bor rowed 1.100 fewer books from the general circulation department, but have asked 241 more questions at the information desk, 4.‘!4 queries having been made this year aud 193 the first two weeks of the fall term in 1927. The increase in the number of books issued by the reserve libraries may be due to a greater total stu dent enrollment or to more books being placed on reserve by pro lessors, our me per cent increase in the number of questions must surely indicate a greater desire for knowledge.

It should be the am bition of every freshman to lay this foundation during his four years of college.” Grades and Success Dr. Hall then took up the relation of good grades to material success ! in later life. “Good grades are j worth little in themselves,” he said, “but the determined effort and con i stant application of the student who I receives them develop in him habits ! of industry, perseverance, and mas I tery which prove to be invaluable i assets in the struggle for economic success.” The problems of college life can be met in part by the development of a habit of self-criticism, accord ing to Dr. Hall. “You will find,” he said, “that many of the problems of maladjustment which every fresh man meets to some degree, can be solved if you will learn to analyze yourself, your personality, your powers and your weaknesses, and to make a sincere effort to correct your own failings.” Physical Fitness Needed Dr. Hall also stressed the import ance of physical fitness for college work, and pointed out that broken health plays a part in nearly all of the student suicides, which are played up in the newspapers. Dr. Hall announced that he would address the freshmen again Thurs day morning on the subject of civic preparedness.

One student, a junior, was found guilty of cheat ing in final examinations last spring, and upon applying for admittance this fall was asked to appear before the committee, where he was found guilty. Tlie other student, a freshman in the school of business administra tion, was found guilty of drunken ness. Only the fact that ho was a freshman prevented the committee from expelling him outright. He may enter one year from now on probation. In passing sentence on the fresh man the committee pointed out that the university has very strict regu lations in regard to liquor, and'that in the future, as in the past, strict sentence will be passed on any stud ents who are found guilty on these charges. These are the first, cases in which severe penalties have been metd out this year.

Husky ieam One To Beat For Pennant Washington’s Vietory Over Montana Boosts Stoek In Coast Conference Oregon Undaunted by Reports From North Changes Made on Varsity; Donohue Moved to Half The increasing reports of the Hus kies’ strength lias not daunted the Webfooters, anil the nightly prac tices are marked by a silent deter mination to defeat Washington - in the stadium at Portland, Saturday. Oregon is more equal to Washington this year than has been the case for several seasons, and the possi bilities of a victory are bright. Tiie varsity, polishing its offen sive plays, worked against t ho freshmen Tuesday night. The line, particularly, had a hard session. The forwards this year are showing more improvement and finish since Me Ewan is personally instructing them. Several changes in the lineup are likely before the Washington game. John Donohue has been moved out of the line into the backfield. Dono hue played halfback on last year’s freshman team, but was shifted to guard at the first of the season. This change adds further uncertain ty to the starting backfield com bination. Pope Back on End Ted Pope, regular end last year, has moved up to one of the regular wing positions, replacing Harry Wood. Woodward Archer has se cured a permanent jobson the other end. Marshall Shields has fought his way onto the varsity, and prob ably will get the call over Mc Cutclian as guard next Saturday. The Webfoot punters had a full quota of work last night. Me Ewan timed each boot and had the kickers work along the side lines for accuracy. Speed in getting off the punts is one of Oregon’s offensive maneuvers this year. The backfield arid ends were also drilled on a passing attack. Huskies Set to Win By BICHARD L. GODFREY Portland, Ore., Oct. l(i. (Special to The Emerald)—Deports, herald ing the University of Washington football machine as a team to beat from now on, have reached here as thousands of fans are awaiting the Husky-Oregon grid classic slated for Multnomah field Saturday.
