Condition of Vernon Sprague, in

football game, was somewhat bet

tional, it was reported from the
Sacred Heart hospital Friday night.
Sprague’s injury is definitely a
fractured skull, according to hos
pital officials. He will be confined
for an indefinite period.
Russ Cutler, gym instructor, who
received a broken cheekbone dur
ing his touch football class last
Wednesday, was considerably im

back to his classes Monday.
Nothing definite could be learned
in regard to the investigation of
the intramural sport by Paul R.

accidents have occurred in unregu

Old Libe Soon to End
Thirty-Year Service
Thirty years of service for the old libe will be ended winter term,
when the 275,000 volumes composing the Oregon library will be moved
to the new building. This will be the library’s eighth move in its 54
: years of existence.
Built in 1907, the old libe is the only building ever erected on the
! campus as a library. For although the Oregon library has server the
various departments adequately
and conveniently through the years
' it has usually been at the tail-end
of most of the building and devel
oping of the school.
When the University was found
ed in 1876 with one building, Deady
hall, there was a delay about secur
ing a library. Until 1882 the Uni
versity’s only “library” was 500
; books obtained by the Laurean and
Eutaxian, two literary societies on
i the campus.
In that year Henry Villard, pio
neer railway builder of the West,
gave 1,000 worth of books to start
a real library. At first this was
located in Prof. Mark Bailey’s of
fice in Deady hall. Besides teach
ing mathematics and astronomy,
Professor Bailey served as librarian
from 1884 to 1891.
In 1885 the 625 books were
moved to a corner in Villard hall,
remaining there until 1893, when
they were again moved to Deady.
During these years, when Dr.
Charles H. Chapman was president
of the University, $400 annually
was set aside for books and $100
for magazines. Although this is a
very small sum compared with the
thousands spent each year now, Dr.
Chapman wrote at that time that
“One hundred dollars is more than
enough to get all the really desir
able magazines.”
In 1897 and 198 the collection,
composed of almost 4000 books by
this time, was housed in the lower
floor of Prof. George Collier’s home
on the corner of Thirteenth and
University. The building later was
bought by the University and is
now the home of Chancellor Hunt

Announcement of Alumni

A decision on the appointment of traveling alumni secretary will be

of a secretary.

resigned last summer. On October
10 it was reported that efforts were
being made to appoint a new man
by homecoming time, but nothing
was accomplished.
Under the original plan, frater
nities and sororities were to con
tribute $1000 a year to the ex
penses of maintaing a secretary,
the balance to be paid by the alum
ni association.
Fraternities Cause Delay
Failure of the fraternities to ap
prove their $3 50 contributions per
month for each house added to the
delay. Sororities, on the other
hand, announced their 100 percent
support of the contributions over
three weeks ago.
In the opinion of those connected
with the selection of a secretary,
fraternities and sororities will not
be asked for contributions, al
though the way has not been closed
for them to secure material in
regard to incoming students.
Last reports on the situation in
dicated that thirteen or fourteen
applicants were being considered
for the position. The secretary
when appointed will act as a travel
ing contact man for the University,
aiding in intere .ting high school
students in Oregon.
