UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. Eugene.
Or., Oct. 8. (Special.) Varsity folk
and Eugene townspeople joined to
night at a progressive dinner, which
was served in courses at the various
women's fraternity nouses and dormi
tories scattered over the campus.
Two circuits were mapped out. Soup
was served to the hungry crowds at
the first station, salad at the second,
sandwiches at the third and so on. The
round sum of 50 cents entitled the con
tributors to a "meal ticket" and the
net gain goes as the first donation
to the women's building fund. The
campaign was launched by Mrs. Oer
linger, of Dallas, the -only woman on
the board of regents at the State Uni
versity. 10OO In "Bread Line."
An estimated throng of 1000 per
sons was fed. It was about evenly
divided between students and Eugene
citizens, who were served by fair co-eds
and varsity freshmen or staid business
men, who spilled soup, dropped & sand
wich, or ate too much ice cream, fur
nished amusement for the crowd. The
spread was decidedly informal.
Not a fraternity house in the city
served dinner at its table tonight;
every member of the respective organi
zations progressed for his rations.
Two student bands blared forth col
lege airs at the head of each line and
me procession represented a huge var
sity rally. Faculty members put in an
appearance and the first progressive
uinner was'voted a success.

saloonkeepers will be tried.
As the case taken to the Supreme
Court was lost by the saloonmen, it is
believed that they will probably plead
guilty to remaining open after the local
option law had gone Into effect. The
law was supposed to have become ef
fective January 1, but the saloons were
kept open until January 28, an injunc

truth creates confidence, establishes

because they are untarnished, unex-

The popularity of Scott's Emulsion

But, who is to play Walling ford and who is
to play Blackie Daw? This you must be
thinking with much concern. There was only
one man in all America who could play Wall

Mr. Mcintosh who Mr. Chester has always be
