Eight thousand Community Extension
bulletins are now off the press, accord-
ing to Miss Edith Perry, secretary to
Dr. J. W. Scroggs, director of the ex-
tension division. The bulletin includes
the plan of organiation of a community
council, the constitution and by-laws,
how to conduct one and suggestions for
work. The community extension bulle-
tin will be sent to members of com-
munity councils where institutes have
been held, to extension directors in all
universities of the United States, to state
officials and to any person interested
who may ask for one, Miss Perry said.
Worked Out By Scroggs
Community Institutes of various types
have been held in many states in re-
cent years. The "Oklahoma Plan" was
worked out in 1917 by Dr. J. W. Scroggs,
but its initiation was delayed by the
war, and the first trial set of institutes
was begun in January 1921 with the as-
sistance of Community Service, Inc.,
of Boston. This series of nine institutes
conducted under widely varying condi-
tions demonstrated the vitality of the
plan and the desirability of its further
"The chief characteristic of the "Ok
lahoma Plan,' states the community in-
stitute bulletin, "is the effort to appeal
to every fundamental inteerst of the
community at the same time." The talks
on these programs include all subjects
from home and business advice to play
Left to Local Workers
The community institute is composed
of a group of workers, encouraging and
making the community stronger and
more efficient. Each institute leaves be-
hind an organization to continue its
work. This organization continues dis-
cussions of various subjects as begun
by the institute. While outside aid may
greatly help to begin local movements,
every community must ultimately work
out its own salvation.
The total cost of an institute is about
$1,000. Of this the community where
the institute is held is asked to pay at
least $300 and all the local expenses.
The university will furnish programs,
circulars, window cards, and pay the
hotel bills of the staff.
The community institute workers will
leave January 8 to hold institutes in
Pauls Valley, Vian, Sallisaw, Stilwell.
Westville, Porum, Stigler, Keota and
Bixby. Dr. Stratton D. Brooks, presi-
dent of the university and Dr. C. W.
Shannon, director of the Oklahoma ge-
ological survey, will speak on the pro-
gram in Pau's Valley.

Indoor Events; Relay May Go
To Penn State
The University of Oklahoma will not
be represented at the Kansas City Ath-
letic club's indoor meet this year, ac-
cording to track captain Bryan Griffin.
Sooner track activities will be confined
to the Missouri Valley contests until
later in the season, he explained.
The first meet of the 1922 season will
be on March 25, when the Missouri Val-
ey indoor track meet will be held. The
place lias not yet been determined.
It is the plan now to develop a relay
team to send to the Penn State meet to
compete against the larger eastern
schools in the big track classic.
New equipment has been purchased
by the athletic board and all varsity men
will be issued complete uniforms. These
include sweat shirts, sweat pants and
two pair of spiked shoes, indoor and
Freshmen trackmen will not be asked
to report until after the outdoor work-
Ten track letter men are ready to start
work next Monday when the indoor
training begins. The veterans arc Bone-
brake, Bower, James, Bristow, Cobb,
Grubb, Griffin, Mangam and Kooken.
Thirteen others who have been out
for Sooner track before will also start
working for l>erths on the squad. They
are Hogan, Kittredge, Overall, Vogle,
Davis, Schwab. Morse. Moore, Corneli-
son. Wysong. Bates, Maple and Bartley.

When Sooner solons cast their ballot
next Tuesday in the annual midyear
election for the office of council rep-
resentative they will at least be informed
as to the policies and intentions of their
candidates. An all-barrister mass meet-
ing was held in Monnet hall Wednesday
afternoon at which time n opportunity
was given to each of the three candi-
dates to set forth the platform on which
he based his campaign.
John R. Hodges, Norman, Moody
Tidwell, Miami, and Robert J. Coffey,
San Antonio, Texas, all law juniors gave
their views on the duties and opportun-
ities of a representative from the law
school. The meeting was called as the
result of petitions circulated in all three
law clases. It is the first of its kind
ever held here.
Rutherford Brett, senior law president,
presided at the meeting and gave each
candidate fifteen minutes within which
to address the body.
Greater Powers Advocated
Hodges declared that he stood for
a body of student representatives in
which there was invested more power
than is at present in their hands. He
maintained that by this means alon«
could there be any scholastic improve-
ments brought about. He also stood
for the immediate and whole-hearted
launching of the stadium drive and
declared that, if elected, he would sup-
port the movement in every way pos-
Coffey took issue with none of the
former speaker's statements and assert-
ed that he stood for a strongly central-
ized authority to be invested within the
council so that certain legislation, long
needed but impotent from lack of pow-
er to enforce, could be put in effect.
He pointed out that the needs of the
law school were peculiar but just as
vital as those of any other and that,
by co-operation with its members he
cou'd, if elected, bring these needs to
Tidwell declared that as matters stand
the advisory function of the student
council failed to meet the growing needs
of the school. He did not in any direct
measure take issue with either of his
opponents. He called attention to the
urgent need of advancing the legisla-
tive and interscholastic relations of the
various schools represented on the camp-
us to the ultimate improvement of the
entire student government. He advo-
cated the unqualified right of each law-
yer to set forth any issue thru the
school's representative and stated that
in event of his election his policy at
all times would be to stand for the wish-
es of the majority of his constituents.
