In First Week
757 Purchase Tickets of
Increased Value

Harrison Desires Larger
Percentage Student
Aid in Campaign
Marshall Harrison, chairman of
Uie A.S.U.O, membership drive,
announced yesterday that out of
2397 students who have enrolled
at the University this year, only
1757 have purchased student body
cards. “While the percentage
shown is greater than that of last
year, yet it is far short of a figure
which will mean a banner year at
Oregon,” aserted Harrison.
In urging the remaining 25 per
cent of the students to buy cards,
Harrison stated that the actual
value of the student ticket can
not be questioned. “It is not the
intention of those on the commit
tee to press the purchase of a tic
ket upon students,” the chairman
said. "But for the good of those
students who have not purchased
student body oards and remain
outside the A.S.U.O. government,
we urge their support.”
O.S.C. Greater
Registration figures show Ore
gon State campus a greater reg
istration and percentage of tickets
sold. This situation is similar to
the one that arose last spring, and
Harrison predicts that if it is al
lowed to continue, the University
will lose prestige among the
schools on the coast.
In the interests of a more ex
tensive drive, the chairman states
that every student who has not
purchased a card will be asked to
do so next week. A thermometer
is to be posted Tuesday on the
comparative standings of Oregon
State and the University on the
bulletin board in the Co-op.
100 Per Cent Needed
All organizations are urged to
see that their membersnip is 100

golde Hardison, sororities; Bob
Thornton and Reva Herns, inde
pendent men and women.
“It is esential that we should
have more members in bur stu

For Relief Work This Year, Many
Improvements are Now Noticed
Through work of 12 SER A,

grounds and buildings. Of this sum
$12,508.94 is donated by the Uni

Male Chorus Will
Present Concert
Of Russian Songs
Classics lo Include ‘Song
Of the Volga Boatmen’
And Many Others
“Singing Horsemen of the
Steppes,” known more commonly
as the Don Cossack Russian male
chorus, will appear in Eugene on
the night of Friday, October 26,
at McArthur Court, according to
an announcement made yesterday
by the graduate manager’s office.
The concert is to besponsored by
that body as an exceptional part
of its fall activities.
The concert is to be sponsored by
concerts all over the world, con
sists of thirty-six voices, under the
leadership of Serge Jaroff. It was
organized in 1923, and upon com
pletion of their present American
tour of 102 concerts they will have
given upwards of 2700 concerts
throughout the world. All the
members of the group are former
military officers who served dur
ing the World War in the Russian
White Army.
All members are exiles from
Russia, none of whom has seen his
native land since he was expelled
by the Eolsheviki. Passports have
been issued to them by the League
of Nations, upon which no men
tion of nationality is made. Yet
the Don Cossacks have thrilled
people the world over with songs
from their native land.
T heir program opens with a
group of liturgical songs, includ
ing compositions of Tchaikowsky,
Gretchaninoff, and others. The
first number will probably be the
famous Credo of Gretchaninoff, a
custom which is almost traditional
with the chorus. Folk songs of
Russia always provide one of the
most appealing parts of the pro
gram. Some of those which will
be sung are “The Captive Cos
sack,” “Red Sarafan," and the
Volga Boat Song, so beloved in
this country and others.
Their program opens with a
Morran and Washburne’s, starting
October 15, or at the graduate
manager’s office at McArthur
court. The University Co-op store
will also sponsor the sale of tic
kets, and the graduate manager
is handling mail orders for re
served seats.
