Law Student Undergoes
Appendicitis Operation
Gordon Keane, third-year law
student from Grandview, Oregon,
underwent an operation for acute
appendicitis at the Pacific Chris
tian hospital yesterday. Dr. George
I. Hurley performed the operation,
and reports say that the patient is
doing nicely.
Feeling ill, Mr. Keane entered
the infirmary, but as his condition
grew worse, it was necessary to
transfer him to the hospital for
the operation. Mr. Keane is af
filiated with the Sigma Nu frater
nity.
Hungar and Bilges Hold No
Pleasure for Oregon Gobs
Starvation, tropical heat, devas
tating hurricanes — all the thrills
of a Joseph Conrad novel were
packed into a month’s voyage this
summer by Henry Jayne, sopho
more in business administration,
and Ned Kinney, junior in business
administration.
"We had planned to spend six
months on this ship,” Jayne ex
plained, "but when we finally
limped into New York, I had had
enough. What ship was it ? The
S. S. San Bernardino. Ned was em
ployed as mess boy and myself as
quartermaster."
“The ill-fated voyage began from
Seattle on August 1. Unusually
good weather was encountered un
til we reached the Gulf of Tehaun
tepec, off the coast of Mexico.
From that time on into New York
we were the victims of mountain
ous seas, hurricanes, and tropical
rain storms.”
Jayne paused to say that the
Panama Canal zone was one of the
most interesting sights seen during
the entire trip. As it took exactly
eight hours to traverse the canal,
there was ample opportunity to
"see the sights.”
“But when we were a hundred
miles off the coast of Panama our
troubles began. Heavy seas caused
the shifting of th® deck load and
gave the ship a list of twelve de
grees. On the second day the
greatest misfortunes of the entire
voyage befell us. In the first place
the larder was washed overboard,
and immediately afterwards the
oil tanks on the starboard side ex
ploded. flooding the aft quarters
with crude oil a foot deep.
At this point Ned Kinney be
came the principal character. He
was not one of those fortunate
enough to escape that nausea of
the sea, and for six days was con
fined to his compartment. When
he recovered, however, the job of
bailing out the oil was assigned
to him. An average of 14 hours
a day was spent in this task.
“By this time the boat had set
tled to a 28 degree list,” continued
Heinie Jayne. “With the larder
gone the only remaining eatables
were bread, and therefore, for 12
days, our meals consisted of bread
and water. The ship was so badly
disabled that the members of the
crew laid wagers as to when the
“tub would sink.” No one believed
that we would ever reach New
York.
“It was a great experience, but
I wouldn’t advise it as a rest
cure,” Jayne concluded.
Law Enrollment
Increase Great,
Says Dean Morse
University Law School Has
Recommendation of
State Lawyers
The enrollment in the University
law school has increased more
than 35 per cent over the enroll
ment last year at this time. The
figures, coming from the office of
Wayne L. Morse, dean of the law
school, show 93 students, as a total
last year, to compare with the 126
names on the school’s incompleted
register at the present time. The
list is not closed until the lapse of
another week as the extension of
time for registration is a special
privilege to seniors.
Two reasons stated by Dean
Morse for the increased registra
tion is the high standards main
tained in the law school which
have prompted the lawyers of the
state to recommend that the pros
pective lawyers seek their educa
tion here, and the fact that more
and more of the students are
recognizing that the training pro
vided by a study of law is valu
able irrespective of what work
they take up after college.
Changes in the arrangement of
the law school’s quarters on the
second floor of the Oregon build
ing have been made during the
summer. The library has been uni
fied and all books brought to
gether in the front of the build
ing, a central librarian’s desk
built in, and the study space in
creased from 18 to 76 chairs.
Speaking of the changes, Dean
Morse said, “Visitors to the school,
who are acquainted with the other
law libraries on the coast, invari
ably remark that the present ar
rangements make the school as
workable and efficient as any law
school on the coast. We cordially
invite all members of the faculty
and student body to come over and
inspect the place.”
U. of W. Will Welcome
Webfoot Grid Rooters
“We students of Washington are
ready to extend to you of Oregon
every courtesy. We are well pre
pared to duplicate the spirit you
showed us in Portland last year.”
Thus reads the opening paragraph
of a letter received by the Emer
ald yesterday from Seattle.
The letter emphasized a post
game dance to be held Saturday
night in the Aerie room of the
Eagles auditorium. Mauly John
son, penman of the letter and pub
licity chairman of the dance,
quoted the tickets as $1.00 per
couple.
The auditorium v/ill be decor
ated in the colors of the respective
schools “such banners and pen
nants that will blend into a real
post-game football dance.” Stu
dents attending the Seattle game
are urged to patronize the dance
in the same manner that Washing
ton students did the Oregon dances
held in Portland last year.
Fisher Appointed
To Seat on Choir
Governing Body
Officers Chosen on Friday;
Barron Is Re-elected
Head of Group
Ed Fisher has been appointed
to a seat on the board of directors
of the University polyphonic
choirs by George Barron, presi
dent, it was made known last
night. The appointment was made
to fill a vacancy made by the
withdrawal of Bill McNabb from
school.
Barron was re-elected president
of the organization last Friday.
Other officers and members of the
board are Hose Simons, secretary
treasurer; Nancy Thielsen, and
Harold Ayres.
The other members of the board
were in office last year. All mat
ters of policy affecting the choir
are decided by the board of direc
tors, and the management of the
40-voice first choir, the 200-voice
second division, and the men’s
chorus is in the hands of this gov
erning body.
Fisher is a charter member of
the polyphonic choir and sang
with the University glee club for
four years. In 1927 he was bass
soloist with the glee club in a joint
concert with the Portland Sym
phony orchestra given in Port
land, where Deems Taylor’s “The
Highwayman” was sung. In 1928
and 1929 he was soloist with the
glee club in the Christmas presen
tation of the St. Cecilia mass.
Lone Student Confined
To University Infirmary
Business is poor even in the
University infirmary, there being
only one student, Bob De Graff,
confined there with a cold. The
peak so far this year was reached
last Thursday, when the infirmary
contained seven patients. All of
these but Mr. De Graff were dis
missed over the week-end.
Local Addresses
Must Be Reported
To Grad Manager
'J'HOSE students who had not
determined their Eugene ad
dress at the time of registration
must report immediately to the
graduate manager’s office in
McArthur court with their new
| local address, according to Iton
i aid H. Rohnett, assistant gradu
ate manager. This correction
of addresses is nesessary to se
cure accuracy in the student
directory, which is going to
press very soon, and it is the
desire of the graduate man
ager’s office to have every ad
dress correct.
Change of address may be
phoned in or the student may
call at the office in person.
Open House Up
To Committee
DecisionToday
Phi Sigs Sign Petition
Favoring Plan
Campus Sentiment Divided
On ‘Bunion Derby’;
New Ideas Sought
With a petition bearing the
names of 45 members of Phi Sigma
Kappa on file in the dean of wom
en’s office in favor of Open House,
and with pleas for and against the
annual all-campus get-acquainted
event dinned in their ears by inter
ested students, a committee of
seven students and two faculty
leaders will meet at 4 o’clock this
afternoon to decide the fate of the
“bunion derby.”
Meeting in the office of Mrs. C.
L. Schwering, dean of women, will
be Brian Mimnaugh, president of
the A. S. U. O.; Ann Baum, presi
dent of the A. W. S.; Janice
Hedges, president of heads of
houses; Paul Bale, Cliff Beckett,
and Con Hammond, interfraternity
council representatives; Willis
Duniway, editor of the Emerald;
Virgil D. Earl, dean of men; and
Dean Schwering.
October 17 Date
Open House now stands tenta
tively on the fall term social calen
dar for the evening of Saturday,
October 17. Action of the commit
tee today may either result in ap
proving this date, cancelling the
event entirely, or substituting
some other arrangement for the
present plan.
Questioned last night, Dean
Schwering expressed doubt that
the committee would reach a defin
ite decision this afternoon, but said
it would go into the question thor
oughly and consider all proposals
for change or betterment of the
plan.
opinions Arc inviucu
Opinions of the committee mem
bers seem evenly divided. Bale,
Beckett, and Hammond, of the in
terfraternity council, are expected
to vote against the present plan
to sustain the action of the organ
ization of fraternity presidents
which twice has voted against
Open House.
Mimnaugh, Duniway and Miss
Baum are expected to support the
affair. Miss Hedges could not be
reached last night for a statement.
It is thought, however, that the
heads of houses group is in favor
of retaining Open House, at least
in some form for the freshmen.
California Astronomer
Has Bulletin Published
E. Bower Gives Information on
Planet Pluto
BERKELEY, Oct. 5.—Using all
available data concerning the
planet Pluto which was added to
the list of known solar bodies by
observers at Lowell observatory,
Arizona, last year, Ernest Clare
Bower of the University of Cali
fornia Lick observatory has just
published a bulletin on its orbit,
mass, and positions during the
coming year, 1931-32.
While some of the data so far
accumulated would indicate that
the planet Pluto might have eleven
times the mass of the earth, Bower
states, the most reasonable as
sumption is that the mass will
prove to be considerably less than
that of the earth, perhaps seven
tenths of the earth’s mass, per
haps only one-tenth.
Bower also offers corrections to
the first orbit which was com
puted for Pluto, and adds that still
further corrections will have to be
made when more data is avail
able. The period of revolution of
Pluto is set at approximately
248.43 years, or 248 times as long
as the earth requires to go about
the sun.

Frosh Lids of This Year Are '
Similar to Those First Worn
A stranger’s first impression
might be that there is a conven
tion of jockeys if he saw the hun
dreds of fellows who strut about,
the campus wearing the green
caps with the long beaks. Better
informed persons and those famil
ial- with the traditions of Oregon
know that they are only fresh
men obeying a custom begun 28
years ago by another generation.
Beginning with a class conflict
with the sophomores as a result
of the yearn of the freshman class
for solidarity and distinction, the
use of the green cap has become
compulsory. A slight smile came
across the face of Virgil D. Earl,
dean of men, when he was asked
what the first lids looked like.
Dean Earl’s class, that of ’06, was
the first to wear them. “It was
similar to the one worn now ex
cept that it had a white ’06 on
the front,” he said. “The green
lid was worn then for class dis
tinction.”
After a class rush with the
sophomores in 1904 the freshman
class obtained by unified force the
privilege of donning the green. By
1910 it became compulsory and
was enforced by the use of pad
dles.
For the class of '13, of which
Karl W. Onthank, dean of the per
sonnel bureau, was a member, the
lid was similar to the one vised
now except that the beak was
smaller. "The freshmen kept cut
ting the lid down from that time
until some of them became no
larger than a one-cent postage
stamp," Dean Onthank said in de
scribing the evolution of the
smaller lid which was worn last
year. Then someone ingeniously
devised the scheme of sewing a
comb in it so that it could be fas
tened to the hair. This is the
method which has been employed
for the last two years except that
the lid was originally manufac
tured small.
This year begins the revival of
the old custom of the larger green
lid. It is a reminder to freshmen
that they are the lowest class of
the University, but now another
method is also used to achieve
class distinction.
The freshman today can be de
tected not only by his headdress
but by the type of pants which
he wears. The tan “tin” pants
which have apparently been unof
ficially adopted by the freshmen

Christian Council j
Gathers to Talk
Of Year’s Objects
Religious Group Meets for
Initial Discussion of
New Topics
The Student Christian council at
its first meeting held last night at
the Westminster house discussed
the possibilities of sponsoring lec
tures as a joint project of the dif
ferent churches represented in the
council.
This move is within the purpose
of the council, which was created
last spring term when the faculty
committee on religion admitted
students to membership.
R. B. Porter, new Y. M. C. A.
secretary, was asked to give a
series of lectures on India during
the winter term.
The possibility of circulating a
petition in Eugene in favor of the
disarmament conference to be held
in Geneva next February, was
taken up as a group undertaking.
The executive committee, composed
of Margaret Atwood, Helen Chaney,
Rolla Reedy, Elaine Hickson, and
Rev. J. M. Adams, will make ar
rangements for the education of
the people as to the purpose of the
conference, and the circulation of
the petition.
These moves were within the
purpose of the Student. Christian
council as outlined when the group
was organized spring term, 1931.
The faculty committee on religion,
in order to secure student reactions
on religious problems, invited the
student groups of the different
churches to send representatives,
and these form the council. The
following churches are members of
the group: Baptist, Catholic, Chris
tian, Christian Science, Community
Liberal (Unitarian), Congregation
al, Episcopal, Latter Day Saints,
Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian,
Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.
Margaret Atwood is president
protempore, and Elaine Hickson is
secretary. Each organization is
represented by a student and
either the pastor, or the student
director of the group.
Freshman Class
Next Wednesday
FRESHMAN meeting for
the purpose ot nominating
class officers for the coming
year will l»e held Wednesday,
according to an announcement
made last night by Brian Mim
naugh, A. S. U. O. president.
He stated that the time and
place had not yet been definite
ly decided but that the full de
tails will appear in Wednesday
morning’s Emerald.
At the present writing little
is known concerning any poli
tical lineups which have been
formulating, but it is expected
that these will come more to a
head by tomorrow.
Officers
Alumni Magazine
Will Carry Many
Feature Articles
President Hall Pietures
Financial Situation
To Graduates
"The initial issue of the Old
Oregon magazine is one of our
best in the standpoint of fea
tures,” states Jeannette Calkins,
editor of the University alumni
magazine, which is to be issued
Thursday, October 8.
One of the special feature arti
cles is written by President Ar
nold Bennett Hall concerning the
present picture of the misplaced
economy forced upon the higher
educational institutions of Oregon.
Many amazing statistical facts are
revealed in this article.
Another feature which this is
sue carries is a photo section of
the leaders of the alumni clubs
in the cities in which the football
team will travel this year. .This
has been made possible through
the success of the "Oregon Alumni
clubs all over the world” cam
paign which began last year.
Arthur Schoeni, graduate of the
class of '30 and former editor of
the Emerald, has an article which
he has named "Delving Into His
tory for the All-Star, All-Time
Oregon Team.” He has picked a
team of the outstanding players
of past Oregon football history
and also has an interesting story
to tell about each one.
Other feature stories include
“Those Nineties Again,” written
by Herbert C. Thompson, an offi
cial of the Red Cross at Washing
ton, D. C., and one who is ranked
as a past master at the art of
reminiscing. The story concerns
early life at the University and
country around Eugene.
David Wilson, member of the
Pacific Basin debate team, gives
an account of the team's encoun
tering many former Oregon stu
dents in their travels. There is
also an article on internationalism
at Oregon by Dr. Warren D.
Smith, head of the geology depart
ment.
The magazine will start the new
school year off with a new cover
design which is very attractive,
the first issue being of blue and
silver color arrangement.
Alumna Elected Prexy
Of Advertising Honorary
An Oregon graduate, Ruth
Street, '28, has been honored by
election to the office of national
president of Gamma Alpha Chi,
women’s national advertising hon
orary, at the national convention
in Champagne, Illinois, according
to word received here.
Miss Street was charter mem
ber and first president of the Ore
gon chapter of Gamma Alpha Chi.
She is retiring from the office of
national secretary this year.
Miss Street was a member of
Phi Mu. Her brother, Robert
Street, is a freshman on the Ore
gon campus.
Hall to Speak
To Freshmen
On College Life
Assembly Today Is First
Of Two in Series
President to Offer Topics
On Intellectual Problems
And the Student
To enable the incoming fresh
man to become better acquainted
with college life, President Arnold
Bennett Hall will address the class
today at 11 A. M. in the Music
auditorium on “Intellectual Prob
lems and the Student."
This is the first of a series of
two assemblies, the second to be
held at the same locale on Thurs
day at 10 o’clock, when President
Hall will speak on "Emotional
Problems and the Student." These
talks are a continuance fcnd broad
ening development of the Presi
dent’s discussion at the first as
sembly on the proper balance of
the student’s life and are intended
to help the student orient himself
during the first few weeks of
school.
The talks this year are shorter
and closer together than in for
mer years, because President Hall
must clear them before taking up
his work with the Oregon Mother’s
tour early next week.
All freshman classes at 11 will
be dismissed and freshmen in other
classes will be allowed to attend
the gathering.
This system ot addresses was in
augurated by requests from the
freshmen several years ago who
desired to become better acquaint
ed with the president and other
notables on the campus. The plan
originally was to have talks dur
ing the whole of the first two
terms, but this year, owing to
other pressing business, the
speeches were condensed into a
fewer number of meetings. Ac
cording to Karl W. Onthank, per
sonnel dean, no other freshman as
semblies have been scheduled as
yet, although others may be added
at a future date.
President Hall gives as his rea
sons for such gatherings, the desire
to renew the associations made at
other freshman affairs and to help
the yearlings deal with issues that
may confront them now or in the
near future. It is impossible for
him to keep in close contact with
the students by the personal route,
for, though his office door is al
ways open, he is away so much
that these assemblies afford his
only opportunity to meet the fresh
men. His first talk will touch on
the application of academic knowl
edge to the practical questions of
life, and he will endeavor to show
the students the proper use of the
education acquired at the college.
Polyphonic Choir Third
Division Will be Formed
Alen’s Music Group to Hold
Tryouts at 5 Today
Another music organization,
new on the Oregon campus, will
take life Thursday afternoon when
the third division of the Univer
sity polyphonic choir holds its
first rehearsal.
The third division, a chorus of
carefully chosen men's voices, will
be directed by Arthur Boardman,
head of the voice department.
They will do four- and eight-part
songs of widely diverse types, ac
cording to announcement made
last night by George Barron, pres
ident of the polyphonic choirs.
Director Boardman will try out
prospective singers today at 5
p. m. in his studio at the Music
building. Membership will be lim
ited to 20 or 25 voices, he said.
An appropriate name for the
group will be chosen soon, Barron
said, and a tentative outline of
public concerts is being drawn up.
Dr. and Airs. A. B. Hall
Fete Heads of Houses
Repeating a custom which they
started three years ago, President
and Mrs. Arnold Bennett Hall en
tertained the heads of houses and
dormitories with a formal banquet
last evening at the men's dormi
tory.
President Hall spoke to the
guests, discussing the influence
that presidents of living groups
have upon the standards of stu
dent life.
