March 4th is the date for the inter-class cross country run. On March 11th will be held the inter class indoor meet. In this meet will be given all the usual track events except discus, hammer and javelin throwing. Features of particular interest will be the inter-class boxing and wrestling con tests. Class representatives will be cho sen in tryouts to be held in the latter part of this month. On April 8th occurs the Columbia indoor meet, at Portland. April 22nd will witness the big event of the track season, the Pacific Coast Tnter-collegiate | Conference meet at Berkeley.

C. and Oregon, as Wash ington State did last year. The meet takes place in Eugene May 6th. Cor vallis and Oregon share the expenses of Whitman’s trip. On May 27 the All-Northwest Confer ence College meet holds forth at Port land. This, of all the meets, will afford the University of Oregon the best oppor tunity to demonstrate her athletic abil ity, inasmuch as the other big meet, in California, will be rather early in the season for Oregon. MORE SCHOOLS SIGN FOR INTER-SCHOLASTIC MEET The inter-scholastic track meet, which has been scheduled for Junior Week End, is now an assured success. Enough high schools and preparatory schools have promised their attendance to make the event a certainty, and more are con stantly being heard from. The rival meet at O. A. C. is proving somewhat of a handicap in the securing of representatives from the various schools, but many wfio have already signed up with the Agricultural College afe duplicating their action in regard to Oregon. Following is a l:st of those schools which have, up to the present date, re turned favorable replies to Oregon’s in vitations: Baker City High, Fendleton ^ligh. Oregon City High, Eugene High, and all the members of the Portland inter-»cholastic league — Washington hligh, Jefferson High, Lincoln High, Portland Academy, Columbia, and Van couver High. Many of the schools have as yet sent in no replies whatever, but an answer in the affirmative is expected from most 01 tl. -e. Manager Cockerline is in con stant communication with those who have leanings toward the “Aggies,” and ^eeb safe in prophesying a most suc cessful meet. H. Libby, assistant county survey nr- will address tire Engineering Club -H. Eelxr.uarv 24. Air.

SPELL BINDER SPENCER FINISHES HIS ORATION Carlton E. Spencer, Oregon’s repre sentative in the inter-collegiate oratori cal contest to be held in Eugene March 10th, completed his oration on “The Rust on our Legal Machinery,” yester day. It was sent immediately to the Sec retary of the Association, who will send copies to the three judges on composi tion and to the presidents of the seven colleges composing the Association. PLAN TRIP FOR FRESHIES 1914 Basketball Team May Start On Junket to Portland and Valley Unless unforeseen obstacles materi alize, the Freshman basketball team will play a return game with Washing ton High School about the end of the month. Manager Huggins is now await ing word from Coach Fenstermacher anent the date of the contest. In case there are no conflicting dates, the Freshmen will probably also meet the Lincoln and Jefferson High School teams during their stay in Portland. There is also a likelihood that Manager Huggins can arrange a game with the Newberg High School on the return trip. Newberg claims the champion ship of the Willamette Valley, and a game with the Oregon Freshmen would be a drawing card. The personnel of the squad making the trip will probably be: Brooks and Roberts, forwards; Bradshaw, center; Rice and Vierick, guards; Meek and Motschenbacher, substitutes; Huggins, manager. Bradshaw is still suffering from the effects of an injury incurred a week ago, and may be unable to make the trip. There is a possibility that Fenton, Varsit)' forward, may hold the pivotal position in the high school games. SENATE’S VOTE PLEASES Oblivious to Veto and Referen dum, Students Celebrate Passage of Appropriation When news reached the Oregon cam pus Thursday evening that the Univer sity appropriation had passed the Sen ate with but three dissenting votes, thus practically assuring the many needed im provements about the campus that the Regents had asked for, there was much rejoicing among the students. Intuitively they gathered on the cam pus, and from there, under the leader ship of Yell Leader Robison, marched through the city, firing guns, cannons and fire crackers, singing, yelling and doing the serpentine. On the return they assembled in Villard Hall, where enthu siastic speeches were delivered by Pres ident Campbell, Regent Friendly, Chas. Robison and Verner Gillis. CONCEDE MEN PLACES IN PRELIMINARY TRIALS The preliminary tryout for the inter state oratorical contest, which was scheduled for this morning, was not held. Only the five men.

Though Oregon won Friday night's game by the decisive score of 27 to 13, the Washingtonians came back this af ternoon and annexed the matinee by a 19-22 score. Friday night’s game was delayed until after 10:00 o'clock on ac count of a wreck on the C. & E., which tied up the “cannonball” unail too lave to make connections with the main line at Albany. The enforced stay in Corvallis and the rush from the late train to the gym was too much for the Seattleites and they went down before Oregon's quintet. Captain Clemenson, however, charged their defeat to their inability to hit baskets and to fickle basketball luck. Oregon started the game with a rush and began to tumble in baskets with startling regularity. From the first the lemon yellow took the lead, and kept it throughout the game. Jamison was the surest at hitting the basket and made seven field goals. The score of the first half was 17 to 7. Oregon took it easier in the second half, guarding more closely and shoot ing a basket now and then to keep in practice. The first part of the half was .played mostly in the middle of the floor, the guards of both teams keeping out of scoring distance. Captain Clem enson showed himself to be a strong guard and was unusually successful in intercepting long passes. The final score, was 27-13. The second game lowered Oregon’s Northwest championship aspirations a few notches. Olson started the scoring soon after the whistle by shooting a basket. Fenton duplicated half a min ute later. The score was nearly even throughout the game, though the first half ended with Oregon on the long end 10-8. Washington guards put up the game of their career. Hoscly in particu lar was strong on working the hail down the field. The whole Washing ton team took turns at the basket, Clem enson coming down for three. In the middle of the second half Washington tied the score and Oregon got the lead but once afterward, and then were unable to keep it. d he vis itors shot three baskets and Oregon se cured one, point on a foul. The final score was 19 to 22. Oregon has two more games to play with Washington at Seattle, which will decide the championship, as the race clearly lies between Oregon and Wash ington. IF YOU ARE A JUNIOR REMEMBER THE DATE President David McDaniels announces an important meeting of the Junior class, to he held Monday, February 20, in Dr. Bennett's room.

MONEY PROVIDED FOR IN TWO 13ILLS, 210-211 Most of Adverse Votes Come From Counties that Support Small Denominational Colleges On the whole, the University appro priation hills enjoyed comparatively smooth sailing in the legislature after the ways and means committee cut off the items of eight and four thousand providing for a campus printing plant and summer school. The money was provided for in two hills, House hills 210 and 211. H. B. 210 was the general hill and 211 pro vided only for a new library building. In the house of representatives 210 called out ten adverse votes. The noes were Brownhill of Yamhill, Carter of Clackamas, Graves of Yamhill, TTollis of Washington, Libby of Marion, Mil ler of Linn, Shaw of Linn, Simpson of Linn, Smith of Josephine, and Tigard of Washington. On 11. B. 211, Carter of Clackamas, Hollis of Washington, Mahoney of Umatilla, Miller of Linn, Newner of Douglis, Pierce of Coos and Curry, Shaw of Linn, Simpson of Linn, and Tigard of Washington voted no. In the senate, H. B. 210 called out hut three nays, viz : Dimick of Clacka mas, Miller of Linn, and Wood cf Washington. H. B. 211 was voted against by Bar rett of Lincoln, Tillamook, Washington and Yamhill, Miller of Linn, and Wood of Washington. It will he observed that Senator Mil ton A. Miller of Linn, who is a regent of the University voted consistently a giainst the University. His county, Linn, was also active in the house against the bills. Most of the other adverse votes came from counties which have small denominational colleges, such as Wash ington, Yamhill, Marion and Linn. Though Governor West has not yet signed these bills no veto is expected in view of his opinion expresesd in his in augural address KINCAID FIELD WILL BE SITE Or NEW BUILDINS As soon as the appropriation bill is known to he safe, duplicate plans fer altering the Men’s Dormitory will be drawn np. In a general way, President Campbell wishes to extend the room ing capacity of the Dorm by partitioning off twelve or fourteen rooms in the garret. To do this, it will he necessary to gable the roof, and possibly put in some form of elevator so that travel from the fourth floor to the first may he facilitated. The kitchen will b; enlarged, and ad joining it a cold storage house will he erected, so that provisions can he bought at wholesale and the Dorm reap the | benefit of extensive wholesale prices. The first two pantries will he torn out and a cafeteria lunch room made of them. The old dining room will still | he used and hoard will he furnished ' there at a flat weekly rate, though some j reduced fro mthe present rate if possible. | The idea is not to have the cafeteria I supplant the regular dining room, but merely supplement it, for the benefit of those who must live, on a more eco nomical plan.
