Straub Appeals To Frosh For Bonfire Taboo Homecoming Tradition May Be Broken Wood To Be Distributed to Unemployed Families Of Eugene An appeal to the freshman class to forego the building of the tra ditional Homecoming bonefire on Skinner's butte this year and to use the wood collected for distri bution among the poor families of Eugene was issued yesterday by Dr. John H. Straub, dean emeritus of men, and for many years adviser to each entering freshman class. Letter Is Given Dean Straub’s letter is as fol lows: "My Dear Young Friends: This is going to be a hard year for the poor jobless of the land. Many a house will lack food for the kiddies, and clothes to keep their thin little bodies warm. Their homes will be cold for lack of fuel, and their suf ferings will be intense. Now, this is where my appeal to you comes in. When the time for the big bonfire comes on, col lect all the wood you can, as usual, and put it on a lot along the edge of the town. Then 1 think we can get all those hav ing wood saws to donate a day or two in cutting this into stove size, and then turn it over to the Salvation Army for distri bution to the poor and thus make many poor cheerless homes com fortable and happy. Act of Unselfishness “It will be an act of great un selfishness and sacrifice on your part to do this, I know, Frosh, but don't you think it worth while? You can still have the ‘noise fest’ and the fireworks and the marching. Won’t you please think this over? If I were strong enough, I would like to talk to the class and I know I could talk a full half hour and give you a hundred reasons why you should do this. Such an act will be broadcast all over the land and bring honor to the class and to the University. I have seen bonfires on the campus, 75 to .100 feet high, containing not less than 40 to 50 cords of wood I am not strong enough to help much, but I will gladly cooperate with you to the limit of my strength. "Sincerely your friend, —JOHN STRAUB, Ex-FroshAdviser. Howard Steib, freshman class president, said yesterday a meet ing of the class would be called soon to consider Dean Straub’s ap peal. Time Budget Discussed By Westminster Frosh “How Shall We Budget Our Time?” was the topic discussed by the freshman group at Westmin ster House last Sunday morning. The discussion, which was led by Bill Gearhart, treasurer of the group, developed many debatable points, and a continuation of the same general topic will be the ^ subject for next Sunday. The group's plans for this year include disarmament canvassing, deputation work, and numerous social events. A Few Shots From Annual Dads Day (1) The annual Dad’s Day banquet.

Recital Tonight To Open Series Of Fall Concerts Piano and Violin Numbers To Be Given by Local Students of Music Frances Brockman and Elaine Moore, both Eugene students in the school of music, will open the student recital series for the fall term tonight at 8 p. m. at the Music building with a program of classical and romantic numbers. Miss Brockman is, in the words of Dean Landsbury, “one of the most talented young violinists in the Pacific Northwest.” Miss Moore is an advanced piano student of Aurora Potter Underwood. The program will open with Mo zart's “Sonata in D-Major” for piano and violin, played by Miss 1 Brockman and Miss Moore. Next will be a group of violin | numbers including Drigo’s familiar j “Waltz Bluette,” arranged by1 Mischa Auer, famous violin virtu- | oso of the present day, Beetho ven’s “Romance in F,” Lubin’s “Ca price,” for violin alone, and Sara sate’s “Spanish Dance No. 8.” Miss Moore’s piano group will contain two numbers by the Amer ican composer MacDowell, “Song, Op. 55, No. 5,” and “To the Sea,” (Continued on Page Three) Architecture Graduate Gets Apprenticeship ivith W right Honors and recognition of his ability in architecture came thick and fast this week for Glen N. Gardiner, of Helix, graduate of the school of architecture and allied arts, who completed his work for a degree at the University of Ore gon this summer. An apprenticeship in the office of Lloyd Wright, Hollywood, Cali fornia, is probably the' most val uable recognition of all. Mr. Wright ' is the son of the world-famousar architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and association with his firm is the ambition of aspiring young men in this field the country over. Gardi ner will leave soon to take up his new position. An article entitled, ‘‘Why not pay for city planning by the land value it creates,” written and il lustrated by Gardiner, was accept ed by the American City magazine, and published in September. It aroused wide comment, and was deemed so well thought out that Gardiner has been asked to make it a chapter of a volume "City Growth Essentials,” a textbook [prepared by Stanley L. McMichael. This book, which is a revision of an earlier edition, is a standard textbook used in leading universi ties and colleges throughout the ! United States. Gardiner has also received and 1 accepted an invitation to speak be fore the national convention of the (Continued on Page Three) Large Attendance Marks Second of Evans9 Recitals By JANET FITCH The Music building was filled to capacity for the second of John Stark Evans’ twilight organ re citals Sunday. Opening with two numbers by Guilmant, Mr. Evans contrasted the dreamy Lamentation with the stirring Marche Religeuse. The second consisted of .contrapuntal variations on a theme by Handel, which reached an interesting height in the latter part where the voices intercrossed, and the pedal carried the thunderous mel ody. Clair de Lune, by Ebussy, the familiar piano composition, be came entirely different when played on the organ; it had a much greater diversity of tone, and more range of expression, but it seemed to lose a little of its liquid simplicity. Yon’s the Primitive Organ amused the audience with a sort of sophisticated mockery of naiv ete, and the careful wicked false note at the end provoked a wave of laughter. The program ended with Cesar Franck’s Piece Heroique, which had all the strangeness and huge ness of a Gothic cathedral, even to the almost grotesque harmony reminiscent of gargoyles that peer over cornices. Upperclass Commission Meets Tonight at YWCA Officers Will Be Introduced; Helen Binford To Talk An important meeting of the Y. W. C. A. Upperclass commission will be held at 6:45 tonight in the bungalow at which time the new officers will be introduced.

The new president will announce the members of her cabinet later in the week. Tonight Helen Binford, who is very much interested in this newly formed group will entertain the members by an account of her travels abroad this summer.

Dancing will be the order of the day in ad dition to the lunch. The O. S. C. student body as well as the alumni will participate in the big get together. Intense enthusiasm on the Ore gon State campus is reported by the Oregon visitors as being con ducive to a successful day. The Homecoming directorate is also in high spirits as a result of the un precedented interest in the affair on this campus and in the whole of Eugene. George Kotchik has announced the appointment of Larry Fischer to take care of the Homecoming sign contest. “Houses will submit their ideas to the committee for approval before the contest takes place,’’ said Fischer yesterday, “and any attempt to ‘razz’ Oregon State will be given absolutely no consideration.’’ The judges for the signs will be announced later by the chairman. Fischer has for assistants on his committee: Kathryn Felter, Port land; Ruth Hubbs, Silverton, and Leo Baker, Pendleton. Penland has called a meeting of the directorate for 7:30 this eve ning in 105 Journalism.

Military Group To Hear Clark At Lunch Today Members Will Celebrate Scabbard and Blade Day Here R. C. Clark who was closely con nected with the original chapter of Scabbard and Blade, national mili tary science honorary, shortly af ter its formation at the Univer sity of Wisconsin in 1904-1905 has been selected to speak before members of the local organization at a lunch to be given today noon at the Anchorage, according to John Painton who is in charge. Mr. Clark will speak on the early days of the fraternity and its ideals. Today, which is national Scab bard and Blade day, 78 chapters in 46 different states will gather at similar luncheons to celebrate the founding of the society. The purpose of the organization is to unite in closer relationship the military departments of Amer ican colleges and universities, to preserve and develop the essential qualities of efficient officers, and to spread intelligent information concerning the military require ments of our country. All members are expected to at tend in uniform and any alumni who happen to be in or around Eu gene are also urged to come. University Depot Collects Campus Strayed Articles Lost or misplaced books, hats, gloves, beads, etc., are now pour ing into the U. of O. depot, accord ing to reports of that department. Many of these articles are never claimed by their owners because the students come once, and of the lost property is not on hand they fail to return at a later date. The missing article is often turned in a day or so after the owner has called, it is declared, and if stu dents would make two or three calls at the depot they would re gain much of their lost property. Magazine Article On Conditions Here Fails To Tell Truth .7 --* All College Girls Asked To Attend Tonqued Dances Entertainment Plans Made For Students Remaining During Vacations Coffee and dancing will feature the first social function of the term for Tonqueds, Eugene girls’ organ ization, tonight at the Westminster house.

The five men who will be In charge of the auctioneering are Ferd Fletcher, chairman; George Vaughan, Ed Schweiker, A1 Mc Kelligan, and Ned Kinney. Sale proceeds will go to the for eign scholar fund which is main tained by the A. W. S. to bring outstanding women students from other countries to the University campus for a year’s study. The foreign scholar this year is Miss Nella Roster from Florence, Italy. “Everything from textbooks and fountain pens to coats, gloves, and jewelry, will be offered for sale Friday,” said Margaret Hunt. “The sale will give students an oppor tunity to recover their own arti cles as well as acquire new ones.” she commented. “The auction sale is a traditional part of A. W. S. activities and should be of a great deal of in terest to all students on the cam pus,” according to Ann Baum, president of the association. Miller Brands Charges As Unsupportable Well Known Periodical Publishes Tale of Poor Work in Colleges Charges hurled against the Uni- ; yersity of Oregon health service by Dr. Barbara Beattie, in an article in the November issue of Good Housekeeping, failed to arouse any great outburst here. First of all, the “investigator” dropped in here j about two and one-half years ago. had a meal on the campus, inform ally discussed health problems with j Dr. Wilmoth Osborn, University physician, and then skipped on, stopping for a few hours at Oregon State college at Corvallis. The most serious charge made against the University is: The most sensational and inexplicable thing that I found was six cases of small pox at the University of Oregon.” The good doctor did hap pen to arrive just the time two years ago, when there were a few cases of small pox here. Previous to this time, in the memory of Dr. Fred N. Miller, University physi cian, there had been but one light • case of this disease and it had nev er been a problem. When the mild epidemic hit here, however, author ities immediately went to the state board of education, and a rule was passed making vaccination com pulsory. Not a single case of small pox has developed on the campus in the past two years, a fact that the author completely overlooked. Poor Fond Hinted The only other charge made was an indirect reference to the health giving qualities of food served here. Dr. Beattie lunched here on “mac aroni, dried beans, cabbage salad, bread, tea and cookies.” Just what was wrong with this, she did not state. However, students at the University, whether they eat at the dormitory, in fraternity or sor ority houses, do get a wider va riety of food than this, and no gen eral complaint has been heard. University doctors regularly In spect the menus of all organiza tions, and a look at the students themselves would probably be the best indication of whether the stu dents are suffering from malnu trition. Dietitian Employed A University dietitian is em ployed to see that menus are nour ishing and properly balanced. Breakfast menus always contain fruit of some kind, both prepared and cooked cereals, toast, all kinds of beverages, jam and often sau sages or bacon. A typical lunch eon menu is as follows: cream of celery soup, scrambled eggs, ba con, browned potatoes, cottage cheese and pear salad, bread, but ter, beverages including milk, pud ding and wafers. For dinner is served such a menu as this: sal mon steak, lemon, browned pota toes, gravy, scalloped tomatoes, cabbage, green pepper salad, bread, butter and beverages. Sunday din ners are more elaborate. “Dr. Beattie, a doctor of whom no one of my acquaintance has ever heard, started out with a prejudice that health conditions were not all they should be in col leges," Dr. Miller says. “She ap (Continued on l'age Four) League of Nations Embargo Offers China-Japan Solution Economic pressure in the form | of an embargo on the part of the members of the League of Nations and the United States to bring about cessation of hostilities be tween China and Japan is seen by Dr. Victor P. Morris, professor of economics. "Agreement of the league to back up its efforts to get Japan and China to arbitrate with an em bargo, would certainly have effect on the powers of both countries,” Dr. Morris said. “There is consid erable support on the part of stu dents of political economy for such a movement.” While the economic pressure would not have much effect on China because of the comparative self-sufficiency of that nation, it would have appreciable effect on Japan, Dr. Morris believes. Japan is largely dependent on other coun tries for raw materials and sends a vast amount of exports to the United States and would conse quently feel the effects of an em bargo to a much greater extent. "The kick-back in relations be tween nations would not be as bad in the invocation of economic pres sure as in that of armed pressure,’’ it was commented by Dr. Morris. “While there would be hard feel ings and resentment for a time, it would not be as universal in the people of Japan for the passions would not be aroused to the extent they are in case of war."
