Freck Urges That Students
Talk Up University
During Holidays
“The 1030 Greater Oregon com
mittee sent in two and a half
times as many recommendation
cards of prospective freshmen
than the year before, bringing the
largest freshman class ever known
to the University,” stated Joe
Freck, chairman, at the last meet
ing of the year.
“The size of the student body
is a determining factor in the
amount of appropriation that the
school will get,” he continued.
“Christmas vacation gives three
weeks in which to talk up the Uni
versity to prospective students to
get them to come to Oregon.
“Material will be sent out after
Christmas and particular attention
given to those interviewed by
members of the committee.”
Freck Commends Work
In reviewing the work done dur
ing the summer, Freck commended
the students who kept up their
correspondence with the main of
fice at the University.
The 12 sending in the most let
ter3 and post cards were: Jacl
Stipe, of Portland, who sent in thi
greatest number; Marylellen Brad
ford, Klamath Falls; Mary Gar
rison, Eugene; Alice Holmtfack
Medford; John Long. Roseburg
Jack Ecilefsen, Portland; Nanc}
Taylor, Portland; Paul Biggs, On
tario; Jack Nelson, Pendleton
Betty Bond, Pendleton; Dorothj
Eads, Medford • Warner Guiss
Bob Miller, head of the easterr
Oregon division, gave a shorl
resume of the state trip made dur
ing the summer.
Trip Is Successful
“Our trip was especially sue
cessful this summer,” he said, “as
it was carried on in a business
like manner. Before, students rep
resenting the University have triec
to interest prospective students b>
telling them of the good times tc
be had here. They had jazz band?
md lots of rah rah, which was
entirely misleading, and caused
trouble with high school officials
Dur trip this summer knocked
down the objections of principals
on that account.
“We traveled 2400 miles all to
gether. There were 13 days oi
actual traveling and we spoke in
a great many schools and organi
zations. Fine receptions were
given us nearly every place vis
ited, especially at Medford, Burns
and Baker.”
Freck concluded the meeting by
asking the heads of each section
to turn in the names of the under
classmen who did outstanding
work on their committee. These
names will be the basis of choos
ing next year’s Greater Oregon

Condon Popular
As Examinations
Worry Students
“Do your exam cramming early,"
might be the motto of Oregon stu
dents this week, the last chance
before the heavy fog of finals set
tles down. Attendance figures from
the reserve libraries show quite an
increase over last year’s figures
for the same days.
Students reading in the English
htistory library are much more
ambitious than they were in 1929.
This “do something early" trend
is affecting the business adminis
tration department, which circu
lated quite a few more books this
year, especially in the last few
Even the law students seem to
: be using a few more books as ex
| am time approaches.
At Condon this week there was
j an increase of about 600 on Mon
j day over Sunday in day’s circula
tion. This might be due to the stu
dents suddenly realing on Monday
that exams were very near—or
that little studying was done on
i Sunday for the next day's classes.

Onthank Discloses Dog Fight
As Journalistic Inspiration
Ex-Editor of Emerald Tells
Of Experiences as
"A dog fight proved to be my
journalistic inspiration," Karl On
thank, dean of personnel, and edi
tor of the 1912-13 Emerald, smil
ingly said.
"This particular fight occurred
in Springfield, between the Uni
versity football coach's canine and
a little street mongrel of that city.
It was a pitched battle, and the
owners of the dogs almost came
to blows themselves. I wrote up
the story and handed it into^ the
staff, and much to my surprise it
was accepted and I was given a.
place as reporter. This was in my
freshman year.”
Mr. Onthank was editor of the
Oregana in his junior year, and irt
1912 was elected editor of the Em-*
erald. The position was filled bjf
means of the regular student body
election, the names of the candi
dates for editor being placed on
the ballot along with the student
activities candidates.
“The staff room was.in the base
ment of McClure, and it shared its
conveniences with Dean Eric Al
len, who was then head of the de
partment of journalism for his first
year. There was no school of jour
nalism at that time. The tri
weekly editions were printed at a
job printer’s downtown, and the
staff members used to fly down
there on their bicycles with copy,"
said Mr. Onthank.
It was through the efforts of
Andrew Collier, business manager,
that the Emerald was able to pub
lish three issues a week, instead of
two as had been done in previous
years, Mr. Onthank stated. There
were six pages to the issue, and
the student body numbered only
about 800, so that the paper had
almost as much news as it has to
"The stafr was very small, and
the editors did most of the work.
We had our difficulties, too, what
with a small press which broke
down frequently.
“Our oiggest problem was to
keep up student morale. The Uni
versity's funds were at a very crit
ical state, due to the rapid growth
of the institution, and the students
didn’t know whether there would
be a college next year or not. For
this reason, the Emerald had to be
very careful never to print any
thing which might prejudice the
public against the University.
“The legislature had made sev
eral appropriations, which were re
ferred to the people to be voted
uponT Some of tfiem p&ssedi^hd
some of them didn’t. There was
one individual who was very well
known at that time in this vicinity.
He was a resident of Cottage
Grove, which was Eugene’s rival
city in those days. It was known
by the students that he had had
considerable influence in getting
the legislative measures referred
to the people, and was against the
appropriations," Mr. Onthank said.
“Consequently, the April first
edition came out with a banner
head proclaiming that this certain
person had been circulating propa
ganda about the campus for the
referendum, and against the best
interests of the University. The
story was continued on the back
page, and in the very last line the
excited reader found these words,
‘This is a hoax!’ ”

Roll Calls of Red
Cross Increased
Over Last Years
Living Organizations Take
Out Memberships,
Faeulty Gives
Complete reports of the Ameri
can Red Cross roll call on the cam
pus show an increase of $56 over
last year’s contribution from facul
ty and living organizations, ac
cording to Miss Mary Annin, ex
ecutive secretary of the Lane coun
ty chapter of the American Red
Cross, and assistant professor of
applied sociology.
"The response this year has been
the best we have ever had," Miss
Annin said. "University students
and faculty members helped not
only in giving money, but also in
soliciting on the campus and in
Eugene residential and business
districts. We are very pleased
with the showing that has been
made,” she said.
Thirty living centers on the cam
pus gave a total of $185, as com
pared to 8145 last year. The fac
ulty members contributed $188
while last year only $172 was giv
en. Each living organisation v;as
asked to take out house member
ships of $5, but several went over
the mavk, seven giving $10.
The work on the campus was
under the general supervision of
Dr. Philip A. Parsons, dean of the
school of Applied social science. A
committee of faculty members had
charge of the solicitation among
the faculty and members of the
administration staff. Bess Tom
pleton, senior in sociology, was
chairman of the committee which
had charge of the solicitation
among the houses.
The roll call on the campus this
year was made especially signifi
cant because of the fact that the
National Red Cross has subsidized
the local training center for the
training of rural social workers to
the extent of $6500.
