A donation of $200 was given to tlw
University band in the student council
meeting Thursday night in order to help
provide the funds which would enable
it to accompany the football team to St.
I.ouis Thanksgiving, announced Hob
Bell, president of the student council,
Friday. A collection will be made at
the next pep meeting to obtain additio
al funds for this trip with the dona-
tion that is expected from the Athletic
association there will probably be
enough money to carry the members of
the band on the trip.
1 he council adopted a motion request-
mg the faculty welfare committee I j
place every function given in the Fine
Arts building as nearly as possible i
the student ticket except the Junior
Burlesque and Stunt night. If entrance
fees are to be charged for these func-
tions the council feels that it would be
better not to have them because many
of the students who attend the Fine
Arts functions are students who do not
enjoy dancing and similar functions,
Bell said. The council feels that the
Drama league, Dramatic club and sim-
ilar organizations that give entertain-
ments requiring cash admittance should
be treated the same as outer schools
and classes, and not be allowed to charge
admission to these functions without
the consent of the council.
It would be impossible to put ( Tri-
form of entertainment on the student
ticket for this year because of ath!; i
demanding more money, and on acc-unt
of so many plays having been approved
and prepared for, that cannot be calk-
off this late in the season. The coun-
cil wants the students to understand
that it is not through its permission that
functions requiring cash are allowed
1 he faculty welfare committee was
requested that dances be approved nn
riday nights when there is func-
tion at the Pine Arts building which
docs not accept the student ticket for
admission. To call off all dane-*, r.n
this night would virtually compel he
students to go to these entertainments
and which are not in reality a stu lent
activity, but are functions put n for
the gain of those sponsoring the piiy,
Bell further said.
A motion was made that each class
be allowed one dance except the junior
class who will be allowed one dance in
addition to the Junior Prom.
F. H. Woods, representing the grad-
uate school, requested the council to al-
low that school a representative in vlcv
of the fact that there are eighty mem-
bers in this school and a lean at its
head. The council voted an amendment
to be passed upon at the mid-yea' elec-
tion and if this carries, the * graduate
school will be represented on council.

FAMOUS WORK IS
Work by Robert Reid WU1 Be One of
Best Yet Seen by Students, Pro-
fessor Jcobsen Says
In room .302 Fine Arts building is ar.

in Aincrica, according to Prof. Oscar
B. Jacobson. So fame! is he that, says
Professor Jacobson, museums and
schools thruout the country feel fort-
unate in obtaining hi? displays.
Robert Reid, the artist, is now 65
years old and Wongs to the past age
artists, having received his inspiration
from the school of I-rench impression-
ists. In the last few yeirs, however, he
has U-en studying the western art mo\c
uient. The two kinds of art can be
seen distinctly in his work. The first,
in the lighter colored portraits anj fig-
ures , the latter in dark moonlight
scenes. In them the author has taken
for his motive the Garden of the Gods.
Mr. Reid is a member of the official
orthodox artists and is mentioned in the
encyclopaedia Britannica as one of the
representatives of American art. He
has mural decorations in all the great
museums and art institutes of the world
and in the Congressional library at
The artist is technically a master and
is one of the greatest men of the pa*t

JAMES ''FLEETFOOT" THOMPSON NOT
OPPOSED TO CO-ED SCHOOL SCHEME
Jimmie Holds Individuality Among
College Boys, Altho Legislature
Elect From Garvin County
I will accept no compromise. I
promised my constituents in Pauls Val-
ley that I would make the Washita riv-
er .a navigable stream and will not rest
until the Oklahoma legislature passes a
bill making it such." This statement
was made by James F. "Fleetfoot"
Thompson, newly elected representative
from Garvin county, whose name ap-
pears oil the class roll of several pro-
fessors of the University of Oklahoma
in the regular daily interview given his
press agent Wednesday. This interview
took place on the football field after
dark while Thompson was striking mat-
ches trying to find his sheepskin coat
preparatory to going to the showers.
Thompson s rise to prominence and
position in public life came suddenly
after several years of faithful service
to the people in minor and non-remun-
erative offices. Although his pay for
being a member of the state legislature
will be over $300 for the two years he
will hold the office, he wajits to make
't plain that the money had nothing to
do with his allowing his name to appear
on the ticket. It was purely a rase of
the office seeking the man and not the
man the office.
The report that I am going to intro-
luce a bill making this educational in-
stitution instead of a co-educational one
is being circulated only by my cake eat-
comc to college with us. Men have

Just what other measures he will in
troduce besides getting Pauls Valk-y oi
a direct water route to the Gulf of
Mexico, this old guard politician has not
yet decided. Thompson explained that
he would first have to look over the hsi
oi promises he lias made and sort out
the ones he will be forced to keep. No
bribes have been accepted by this stal-
wart choice of the people. Relating on-
incident he said; "A man offered nn ,
carton of Camels to get him a job a
maid in the senate chamber but I turn

"ie didn t know I smoked."
