November 1 '
Plans for the first Oklahoma fresh-
man "stunt night," the date for which
will be announced within the next few
days, were laid at a meeting of the all-
freshman class in the auditorium Tues-
As a first step in arranging for
"stunt night", every member of the
class who has talent for entertainment
will be asked to co-operate with class
officers so an outline of all material
can be made.
Frosh officers declare it will be the
biggest first year event ever staged at
To Open Tiger Game Stunts
Suggestions for such a traditional
freshman day were made several days
ago by Pres. Stratton D. Brooks and
the event probably will open a succes-
sion of demonstrations now being ar-
ranged for the Missouri game.
Several hundred alumni and visitors
will be in Norman October 31 and
November 1 and freshman "stunt
night" will be held while the Home
coming festival is in sway, it is be-

weight men in Oklahoma.

work here, Priebe appeared in acro-
batic stunts before several hundred

R. G . Soutar, track coach, announced
Every year Oklahoma sends a
cross country team against Jayhawk
runners but the meet was omitted last
year because of war conditions.
Oklahoma cross country men have
been in intensive training for sev-
eral weeks and Soutar believes Soon-
er trotter* will win the meet as a
send-off for the game.
Signal regard for the leadership of

War Stopped Flashy
Art, Jacobson Says
Sensational Painters Overstepped in
War Rush and Failed, Artist
War eliminated much of the radi-
cal and flashy in art but at the same
time injured seriously artistic crea-
tion, Prof. Oscar B. Jacobson, of the
school of fiine arts, declared yester-
Dozens oi votaries of "flashy paint-
ing, in their wild rush to produce
sensational work for sale during the
war, overstepped all bounds of con
ventionality and produced no/art at
all. Professor Jacobson declared.
The theme of art in universities was
practically unaffected by changes
during the war, Jacobson said.
"I doubt very much whether war
can be anything but destructive to
art or that war can be beneficial to
artistic creation of any kind." he as-
serted in pointing out the fact that
ranks of accepted artists were mown
thin during the early days of fight-
Heaviest loss in the world of art
during the world was, he said, in
France where masters in painting had
led the world for more than 200 years.

An $800 cost accounting machine
and two $250 billing machines may
be added to the department of ac-
counting. according to plans being
contemplated by the faculty of the
school of public and private business
Edmund Berrigan, instructor in ac-
counting, said Thursday.
At present the department of ac-
counting has one $400 Burrough s
billing machine and one $150 com-
mercial duplicating machine.
With the new equipment, only three
adding machines and one rotary mim-
eograph will be needed to put the ac-
counting department of the univer-
sity in good condition, Professor
The object of the accounting de-
partment is to give the student a fun-
damental knowledge of accounting
from the manager's viewpoint and
to equip him for practical work with
books, he explained.
Fifty-five students are enrolled in
accounting. Fifteen are in advance
courses and 40 are beginners.
Forty other students would be en
rolled now if the teaching force was
sufficient to handle the classes, it is
TO APPEAR IN DIRECTORY
The entire student consitution will
appear in the new directory that will
be out soon according to action taken
by the student council last week.
This information was omitted from
the directory during the war and con-
sequently the honor system has not been
fully understood by the student body,
the council believes.
A publicity campaign to make every
student familiar with the working of
the system is being planned.
Miss Sooner, who buys your clothes:
The first answer to this question is
usually "dad". His money, at least,
plays a large part in the haggling over
bargain counters, university women who
have been following the work of the
social morality committee of the N . W.
C. A. say.
Women have been emancipated from
the lizarding class by war work, and
many are now supporting themselves,
it is said.
Depend on Fathers
"Women are the onl^ female animals
who depend upon the male for food,
clothing, and shelter", a bulletin is-
sued by the committee says. "Women
who learn early to buy their own clothes
on their own money will be able to
meet emergencies," it declares.
But university life does not lead
women to purchasing their clothing,

Kappa Tau Pi, religious fraternity
which will become national as soon
las four other universities now organ-
izing such societies recognize it, was
organized in the university this week
and announced Wednesday.
Members are Willard Wickizer,
Ray Bowles, Warner Newby, Chaun-
cey Black, T. Earl Sullenger, Ray L.
Six, John Montgomery, Joseph Ben-
toil, Prof. E. R. Newby, Guy Mitchell,
Albert Tallman, and Franz Briebe-
ineau Pledges are Earl Bartholo-
mew, Harold Poole, Dr. H. C. Gos-
sard. Sellars Bunch, Leo Waite, and
Horace McDonald, and Grady Wann.
Selection for the fraternity is bas-
ed on scholastic and religious stand-
ards. The charter for the local was
granted Oct. 22.
Established in 1918
The fraternity was established in
the spring of 1918 but the entire mem-
bership enlisted in military service
and so activity was not started un-
til this year.
Four of the leading universities
have replied favorably to the nation
alization requests of the chapter, and
it is believed by members that Kap-
pa Fan Pi may soon be nationalized.
The purpose of Kappa lau Pi is
"to create, foster, and maintain the
spirit of loyalty, fellowship, and co-
operation among those who arc acti-
vely engaged in religious work among

Only three active chapters are nec-
essary to nationalize the fraternity.
Kappa Tau Pi is the only fraternity
of its kind.
