for the first time in the periodical
room of the library. This index

cause it includes a considerable
number of periodicals, primarily

ceiving the periodicals but the sub
ject index was delayed.

ian, stated that the delay was
probably due to the war. It is
hoped that indexes will be avail
able back to 1915.
New periodicals recently re

Caroline Chapman, University freshman, gave up the prospects of
movie fame and the allure of Hollywood to come to school at Oregon.
She was “discovered” by a movie scout last summer, received a screen
test, a movie offer—then refused it.
For Military Ball
What would an officer do
without an enlisted man? The
Military ball committee has de
cided to “permit” basic military
students to attend in their
“monkey suit’’ uniforms if they
care to do so.
All freshmen and sophomores
who agree to wear their basic
uniforms at the ball can buy spe
cial tickets at the ROTC bar
racks for $1.25. This offer is
good, according to the commit
tee, only from Wednesday
through Friday noon; at the door
basic students will pay the reg
ular price of $1.50.
The “tux problem” of many
fraternities who have a tradi
tion against freshmen wearing
tuxes, is answered by allowing
ffosh to wear the basic uniform.

Only about 17,000 of these prim

When the Japanese people migrat

ago they found the ancestors of
the Ainu people and gradually
drove them away until the few
who survived the struggle settled
on this northern spot.
Today the Japanese refer to this
tribe as “dog people" because of
their great hairiness. In fact some
of the older members of the tribe
have found it necessary to use
