Oregana Drive
To End Friday
Night At Seven
Publication Starts Soon,
Managers Announce
Day, Stinger General Chairmen
Of Sales; Several Groups
Reach ICO Per Cent Goal
Seven o'clock Friday night is
the deadline for the receipt of all
subscriptions for the 1933 Ore
gana. At this time all subscrip
tions to the year book will be tab
ulated and publication will start.
Only enough copies will be printed
to meet the demands of those who
have declared their intention of
purchasing the student chronicle
at the above mentioned hour. All
who sign up later than Friday
will, therefore, not receive a copy
of the annual.
This announcement was made
last night by Gordon Day and
Helen Stinger, sales managers of
the student publication.
100 Per Cent Reported
A number of living organiza
tions have already announced a.
100 per cent subscription quota,
and many more are bordering on
a perfect representation. Phi
Gamma Delta and Delta Zeta were
the first to report 100 per cent
sales, and will therefore receive
the two lamps which were offered
to the first fraternity and sorority
which reported a complete list.
The present sale is not suffi
cient, however, and, unless more
subscribe before the zero hour Fri
day, Roger Bailey, business man
ager, announces that there will be
no 1933 Oregana.
Price To Be Lower
The year book will go on sale
at a new low price this year. Only
$4.50 will be charged for each
copy, and payments will be dis
tributed over a period of months.
Subscriptions are open to all
students, townspeople, and friends.
Those who are not connected with
any living organization may make
their payments at the A. S. U. O.
office in McArthur court. Those
who live in fraternities, sororities,
or dormitories will arrange for
payment through their respective
house representatives.
Amphibian Club
To Hold Tryouts
Tryouts for membership in Am
phibian club, women’s swimming
and life saving honorary, are to be
held Thursday at 7:30 in the wo
men’s pool.
At their tryouts all women must
present heart O. K. slips obtained
from Dr. Hayes at the dispensary,
although a student who received
an A.a. rating on the physical ex
amination this term will not need
an O. K. slip or heart recheck.
Tests in speed, form, diving and
endurance must be passed Thurs
day evening. The requirements in
each test are posted on the bulle
tin board in the office at the Wo
men’s building.
“Nothing attempted is nothing
gained,” said Mrs. Ivens, adviser
for the group, “so come over and
check yourself on your ability.
You’d be surprised at what you
can do.’’
Fraternities Take
Depression Well
Says SPE Official
"College fraternities are stand
ing the depression remarkably
well," declares Richard Cook,
traveling secretary of the Sigma
Phi Epsilon fraternity, who was a
Eugene visitor over the week-end.
"I don't mean that the fraterni
ties aren't feeling the pinch of the
times, for everywhere in the coun
try they've had to eliminate large
expenses for activities that used
to be considered as social necessi
ties. One chapter in the middle
west which I visited recently had
cut its budget allotment for dances
and other social functions from
$1500 to $200. Other chapters and
other fraternities have made sim
ilar cuts."
Cook has been on the road since
the middle of September, covering
the middle-western states and the
Pacific northwest. He left Satur
day night for Berkeley.
"Another big cut in expenditures
for many fraternities has been ar
rangements with mortgage hold
ers and owners of chapter houses
to make sharp downward revisions
of rentals and equity payments,
which are nearly always a fratern

Leonard C. Jee, ’30, Writes
Of War Experiences in China
A letter from Shanghai to Mrs.
Harold S. Tuttle this week brought
the first news since last April of
Leonard C. Jee, Chinese graduate
with the class of '30, who lived
for four years at International
He left Shanghai in April, he
says, in his letter dated October 20,
and spent nearly four months wan
dering in Canton and Hongkong.
After trying some unsatisfactory
jobs, he spent several weeks at
West Lake, China’s paradise. Near
the end of September he accepted
a position with the English depart^
ment of the Bureau of Foreign
Trade editing one weekly and one
monthly known as the Economic
Bulletin and the Economic Jour
nal. Mr. Jee majored in economics
Of his war experience he writes
humorously, “Me no likie war,”
“me no talkie war no more.” But
he goes on to say, “Well, all I’ve
done was to go into a newspaper’s
office and tell the chief editor that
I was the man who captured one
dozen enemies by single hand (a
liar) and that I want to write a
story about that. I got the ‘job’
naturally, and . started my story
the next morning. Oh, how inter
esting and how surprising to read
ers of the newspaper! I was writ
ing something quite different,
something about HEROISM, in civ
il wars as well as in foreign wars.
I gave our hero a mouthful ... It
was good, at least I think so. Well,
all was well. But, only three days
later, I got a little nice kick-out
from both the army and the news
paper’s office. That’s that, and
that’s a story of the story.” ,
Mr. Jee concludes his letter with !
a request as to news on the mer
ger fight and football, ending with !
the plea, “Remember, don't get
too serious. Things in Shanghai
look awful bad.”

Students Start
Annual Y.M.C.A.
Campaign Today
Leaders Stress All-Campus
Activities During
Coming Year
Student workers in the annual
Y. M. C. A. finance drive started
off this year's campaign to raise
$400 among University men by
making a sizeable contribution of
their own at the kick-off meeting
held last night at the Y. M. C. A.
hut. Eighteen men of those who
attended the meeting contributed
a total of $35 in cash and pledges.
Workers in every fraternity and
men’s hall, supplemented by an
equal number of solicitors among
independent men, will open the
campaign today and close it to
morrow night at 10:30, at which
time all cards will be called in by
Jay Wilson, chairman of the drive.
Dr. Raymond B. Culver, north
west secretary of the Y. M. C. A.,
came down from Portland Tues
day afternoon to assist student
workers in organizing and starting
the campaign. He spoke at last
night’s meeting, stressing the
small amound being asked this
year and the all-campus phases of
the University Y’s program.
“There is little weight to the
argument that a man who seldom
uses the facilities of the Hut has
no interest in this finance cam
paign,” declared Rolla Reedy, Y
president of the Y. M. C. A. cabi
net. “Expenses connected with
the hut will take only a small part
of the amount we are working for.
“The largest expenditures are
connected with directing fireside
forums in all hous’es and halls dur
ing the year, bringing internation
al figures like T. Z. Koo and Flet
cher Brockman to the University
as speakers and discussion group
leaders, and enabling the Univer
sity of Oregon to take part in such
significant intercollegiate confer
ences as the annual International
Affairs conference held in the
Northwest each Thanksgiving
week-end and the Seabeck confer
ence held each June.
“These are activities from which
everyone benefits and which would
be impossible without the financial
support of the student body.”
Campbell To Talk
Over Radio Today
Wallace Campbell, graduate as
sistant of sociology and a candi
date for the Rhodes scholarship,
will speak over KORE on the Em
erald-of-the-Air program today at
Mr. Campbell has announced
that his subject matter will con
sist of a more or less comprehen
sive consideration of the series of
editorials which appeared in the
Emerald concerning the type of
student which Cecil Rhodes in
tended should benefit from his
scholarship, as compared with the
men who are actually selected.
Reference will likewise be made
to the Safety Valve article of Rob
ert Jackson, Rhodes scholar of
two years ago, which appeared in
the Emerald immediately follow
ing the editorials.

Frosh Walkout
Draws Small
First Plans Are Failure;
Idea Slips Out
Dean Earl To Require Information
On Situation Before
Decision In Made
Freshman Walk-Out turned out
to be Freshman Wash-Out last
night, when a multitude of rumors
and counter-rumors cut the at
tendance at this traditional affair
to fewer than a hundred persons.
Misjudgment and inability to
prevent news of the plans from
getting out ahead of time were
advanced as the principal reasons
for the low attendance.
It was originally planned to
have the entire class meet at the
Anchorage, whence they were to
proceed to the town of Thurston,
about nine miles from Eugene, be
yond Springfield, and attend a
special dance in Thurston hall.
However, Allen Wall, president of
the class, attempted to dissuade
the freshmen who were gathered
at the Anchorage. Leaders of the
faction who were favoring the
movement were demoralized by
rumors of faculty censure and the
removal of freshman privileges
and telephoned a number of or
ganizations to inform them that
the affair was off. Later it was
decided to go through with it as
scheduled, but by that time many
of the groups were so uncertain
as to its being held that they de
cided not to go.
Frosh Take Taxis
The freshmen that eventually
arrived at the hall were conveyed
there in taxis at 25 cents a head.
They were met by a four-piece
band from Eugene and a group of
local villagers, and remained at
the dance until 12 o'clock.
Earl Makes No Statement,
Dean Virgil Earl would make
no statement as to faculty action
in the matter, except that he would
require complete information on
the situation and extent of the
walk-out before any decision
would be made.
Cecil Espy, president of the sen
ior class, refused to discuss the ac
tion the upperclassmen would take.
Heaney’s Etching
Rec •eives Award
An etching of the little red jail
west of the court house In Eugene,
done by Charles Edward Heaney,
recently won the purchase prize
given by the Henry Galleries of
Seattle in the Northwest Print
makers' exhibition.
The etching is one of a group of
Heaney’s aquatints, linoleum and
wood cuts, which are now on dis
play in the gallery of the art de
partment of the University.
Mr. Heaney’s work possesses
both force and delicacy. He makes
no compromise between his own
interpretation and the actual de
tails of his subjects.
Recreation Program
Sponsored by W.A.A.
Misunderstanding has arisen in
regard to the recreational pro
gram being sponsored by the Wo
men's Athletic association.
The hours are from 4 to 6 on
the afternoons of every week day,
but Friday afternoon has been set
for an especially planned and full
period of recreation. On the other
afternoons any one may come but
each girl must herself sign out for
such equipment as she wishes to
use. “On Friday afternoon, howr
aver,” Doris Payne, recreation
chairman, explained, “there will be
girls here with the equipment for
everything to teach anyone and

Administration of the senior
funds has been assigned to the
senior gift committee, composed
of Dorothy Esch, Charles Stryker,
James Travis and Virgil Langtry.
Mr. Sorenson, a graduate stu

of the gift committee.
Espy Makes Statement
Cecil Espy, senior president,
made the following statement con
cerning the project:
‘‘We as members of the senior
class feel that it is not only a
privilege but an honor to have an
opportunity to commemorate such
a character as Dea’ John Straub.
"In presenting a bronze bust
upon graduation, we feel that we
are able to express our own con
victions, and to convey to the stu
dents of future classes the posi
tion which Dean Straub held in
our lives, and in the life of the
"Our class was the last group
to be welcomed to the University
by this man, who devoted the ma
jor part of his life to our school.
Now we are fortunate, at the end
of our term on the campus, to be
in a position to perpetuate Ifis ex
istence with us.”
Large Party Enjoys
Saturday’s Field Trip
Dr. Warren D. Smith and Hugh
Currin, in charge of a party of
about 10, spent last Saturday in
making a field trip up the Row
river, where they visited a num
ber of caves. At one place they
were lowered 60 feet underground
by means of ropes.
"This part of the country is
characterized by lava formations
and crevices, the land having
slumped considerably. We didn’t
find anything of importance but
caves, though,” Dr. Smith said.
Oregon Student Government
Functions, Policies Set Out
(This is the first of a series
.of stories by Mr. Prescott on
the operation of student gov
ernment at the University of
Oregon in Its business functions.
The next will appear in an early
issue of The Emerald.)
At the top of the student gov

council. It determines all policies
and names all administrative of

officers ranges from the graduate
manager down to the assistant
managers of various activities.
Membership of Council
The executive council is com

four members of the faculty, in
