STUDENTS WANT
NEW GYM. NAMED
HAYWARD HALL
PETITION BOARD OF RE
GENTS TO HONOR POP
ULAR TRAINER
Tennis Asks for Support—Three
Amendments Are Passed at A.
S. U. O. Meeting This Morning
The members of the student body of
the University of Oregon are in favor
of naming the new gymnasium “Hay
ward Hall”, in compliment to "Bill”
Hayward, the trainer to whose efforts
four years of uniform success for the
school in the athletic field is due. A
resolution to that effect was introduced
by Manager Goodman, of the football
team, at the meeting of the student body
this morning, was adopted by a practi
cally unanimous vote, and will be sub
mitted to the Board of Regents. Mr.
Goodman declared that it would be a
fitting expression of appreciation for Mr.
Hayward’s work >n building up the ath
letic prestige of the school for the new
gymnasium to be named after him. The
promptness with which the students cast
their votes in favor of the resolution,
plainly showed their agreement with that
sentiment.
Of the three amendments that were
brought up for consideration, the first
two were passed without much discus
sion. One struck out from the by-laws
a provision limiting the place where ac
counts of the student body might be
audited; the other provided that only
such men as have won their “O’s” in
athletic competition might have a voice
in the election of team captains for the
ensuing year. About the third amend
ment, providing that the University of
Oregon Semi-Weekly should be given
the name of "Oregon Emerald,” a lively
debate arose. The measure was at first
voted down, but a motion for recon
sideration carried and brought out a
fuller explanation of the reasons for the
proposed change. This appeared to cast
a different light on the subject, for on
the second vote the amendment was eas
ily passed, with only a weak opposition.
At the latter part of the meeting a
motion was introduced by S. R. David
son, to have $2(X).(X) from the sinking
fund of the student body drawn out for
the purpose of building an asphalt ten
nis court, alleging that the present
equipment made it impossible for the
representatives of the Oregon Univer
sity to compete on equal terms with
other schools, where greater facilities
for training were afforded the tennis
team. Although the plan was discussed
as some length, no decision could be ar
rived at, owing to circumstances which
would have made the motion of Mr.
Davidson void, even if it had been voted
upon and carried. The suggestion was
brought up that the four percent of the
student body funds devoted to basket
ball, be diverted this year and applied
to the building of a suitable tennis
court, since it appears unlikely that a
basketball team will be organized this
year as the new gymnasium will not be
in readiness until practically after the
close of the basketball season. It was
finally decided that the president should,
TWO BIG EVENTS FOR
UNIVERSITY SOCIETY
All is now ready for the freshman
party and the girls’ dance, the two big
events in University society this week.
The girls say that their dance is going
to be a “real swell affair,” and that
any co-ed who stays away is making
the mistake of her life. The grand
march will start promptly at 7:45
o'clock Saturday night in the gymnas
ium.
The freshman party will be at the
Chi Omega house Friday evening.
Football men are especially asked to
come, and an effort is being made to
induce Hayward to suspend training
rules for the occasion.
CALENDAR AND DIREC
TORY ARE SUPPORTED
Success was assured the backers of the
new calendar and college directory be
ing prepared by L. H. Gregory* Fritz
,_>ean and Arthur Geary, when the Eu
gene Merchants Protective Association
last night agreed to help in any thing
that was needed in the way of adver
tising.
"We can now safely say that both
will be on the campus within a month,”
said Geary this morning. “We believe
that the students will appreciate our ef
forts in these matters and hope they
will support us liberally.”

RAIN CANNOT
STOP HAYWARD’S
HUSKY BUNCH
IF TRACK IS TOO HEAVY
RUNS WILL BE ON
CAMPUS PATHS
Entries Coming in Slowly, But
All Events Are Full Except
Relay—Distances Shortened.
Despite inclement weather the inter
class track meet scheduled for Satur
day is a sure go. Trainer Hayward
says there are no invalids in the bunch
and that husky fellows should not
mind a shower. If the track is thick
the runs will be held on the campus
paths. Indications are, however, that
the rain will cease before Saturday and
give the athletes a fair chance. “Bill”
was well pleased with the showing the
men had made before the rain inter
rupted and expects a good meet.

PORTLAND GLEE CLUB
DATE IS UNCERTAIN
Owing to the fact that the Bungalow
theatre in Portland is playing two cir
cuits until the new Heilig is completed,
the date for the Glee Club is very un
certain. Manager Geary has been in
Portland the past few days negotiating
for a house. He has a date on the
twelfth of February partly promised by
the Bungalow, but if this falls through
he has an option on Mr. Shubers build
ing (the old Heilig). A house has been
arranged for in Salem on February 11.
The club will leave for the South on
December 20, and will disband in Ash
land on December 23. Manager Geary
said this morning: “1 wish to make the
trip South as short as possible, in order
that the boys who desire to do so may
get home for Christmas.”
ELLSWORTH MORGAN
TRIES FOR OXFORD
Ellsworth Morgan, '09, has registered
for examination for the Rhodes scholar
ship from Oregon. He will take the
examination at the University of Wash
ington at Seattle, but has registered
from the University of Oregon. He
graduated last spring in the classical de
partment, ranking high in scholarship
and student affairs. He was a mem
ber of the senior play, and made some
records in wrestling. He specialized in

CLASH FAILS TO
MATERIALIZE IN
SENIOR MEETING
MANAGER’S REPORT ON
OREGANA ACCEPT
ED QUIETLY
Meeting Adjourned After Voting
$2.50 Tax and Discussing Plans
for Staging Annual Play.
The much lookcd-for hostilities in the
senior class meeting this afternoon fail
ed to break, much to the disappoint
ment of the onlookers. Instead, the
meeting went off without a hitch. A
tax of $2.50 was voted to cover an in
debtedness of $218.83 and the manager’s
report accepted without comment.
Plans were then discussed for mak
ing up the deficit by the senior play
hut definite action was left until a fu
ture date. A committee was also ap
pointed to look into the matter and
report.
MANDOLIN PLAYERS
WILL COMMIT MUSIC
I lie Mandolin Club is practicing twice
a week now and will soon meet three or
four times a week in order to make it
the most perfectly drilled aggregation
that has ever represented the University
of Oregon. A determined effort is be
ing made by Manager Davidson and
Professor Gl'en to have the men com
mit the pieces that are to be used this
year so as to avoid the embarrassment
and delay caused by carrying the music
and racks around and on and off the
stage.
Similar efforts have been made in
former years, but the men have never
taken kindly to it on account of the
extra work it caused. This year, how
ever, there is an abundance of material
and those who make the club must show
a willingness to work. If any refuse
to learn their parts, an attempt will be
made to fill their places with men who
will.
"If they all learn the music,” said a
prominent member speaking of the club
this afternoon, “the club will be the best
in the history of the University. If
they do not, it will be little better than
last year, when, aside from this par
ticular part, the club was a very credit
able aggregation.”
FRESHMEN “SHOW PIP”
AND HURL DEFIANCE
At a late hour this afternoon the
freshmen drew up the following answe'
and presented it to the sophomores:
"We the freshman class of 1913, wish
ing to demonstrate to the hitherto, but
not much longer invincible sophomore
class of 1912, that the class of 1913 can
“show a little pip”, do hereby accept
the challenge of the class of 1912 to a
game of' football.
"Rules: Queensbury.
"Time: Till sundown.
“Details to be arranged by a joint
committee.”
