$1,500 Already Raised—Y. W. C.
0 A- Will Build 'When
- $2,100 Is Raised ’
The Y. W. G. "A. Bungalow fund,
which is to be raised completely, or
within $200 or $300 of the amount nec
essary before the contracts are let, has
already reached the $1,500 mark. Thte
money is at present out at interest.
Since the plans for the house have
been drawn up and bids have been re->
ceived from the various contractors,,
the committee, has. found that $2,300 will
cover the entire expenses of the bun
galow when finished. There remams,
then, a deficiency of $500 or $600 which
must be raised before the work of con
struction can begin, since the women
of the Y. W. CJ A. clltf hot deem it ad
visable to try to pay a heavy interest
along with their ’ vning expenses. To
raise this sum ltd I needed, a regular
committee is now canvassing Portland
and a similar work will soon be started
in Eugene. Thus vhe date upon which
-jjhe actual building of the bungalow will
begin depends larg/lv upon the success
ot these subscnp-ion committees.
Varsity Exchequer Badly Needs
Some Bracing Spring*
At this time, the year’s budget can be
approximated fairly closely. While the
college’s financial status is nothing to
be enthusiastic over, neither is it in an
exceptionally bad way.
Because of a poor schedule, which
brought no teams of importance to Eu
gene, football went in the “hole.”
The Glee Club made a few hundred
dollars, which will about balance the
deficit in football. Basketball has about
$21 to the good. Oratory and debate
will probably go behind a little. Track
is doubtful and may make or lose a
small amount. Baseball will probably
go behind. The Oregon Monthly and
the Emerald will pay all bills, but will
not be likely to put much cash into the
A debt of $717 was carried over from
last year and had to be paid before an
apportionment could be made at the be
ginning of this year. Notwithstanding
this, the treasury now has on hand
$423.95, to which will be added about
$125 from student body fees paid in at
the beginning of the second semester,
making a total of approximately $550.
Naturally this fund will not allow of
an elaborate policy in frenzied finance,
but will permit the college to close the
year with better than usual balance.
To advertise the University, all mem

Indoor Meet Will Be Replete
With Other Spectacular
The indoor meet, which will be pulled
off on Wednesday night instead of on
Tuesday as advertised, promises to pre
sent some novel sensations. The obsta
cle rtice will be run for the first time at
Oregon. This is an entirely new fea
ture, and there is consequently no ad
vance information upon the subject, and
it is impossible to forecast the winner.
The course of the race has not been se
lected, but it will be in plain view of
all of the spectators. There will be
hurdles to jump, barrels to .cnawl
through and ropes to climb. Sacks of
the latest hobble skirt design will also
be worn during pant of the race. The
barrels will be of assorted sizes from
nail kegs for “Slim” Bailey to sugar
hogsheads for “Fat” Wentworth.
There is no limit to the number of
entries land no disbarments on account
of race, color or previous condition of
On account of the postponement of
the date, all of the entries will not be
in by press time andthe Emerald will
not publish the partial list. One event,
however, promises to be of more than
usual interest. Kelly and George, the
Greek “Shinola artist,” will grapple in
the 125 pound class. Kelly is well known
as the Varsity wrestling instructor, but
the Greek is as yet an unknown quan
tity. He learned the game in his native
land, where every man is more or less
of a “grabber,” and has followed it up
since coming to this country. He has
appeared in several preliminaries at the
local theater, but as yet hias never been
called upon to extend himself. He will
have a chance,, however, in this bout to
put up the best he has, for Kelly has the
proverbial Irish antipathy for all mem
bers of the Slavic Dace.
The meet will be called at 8:00 o’clock
sharp on Wednesday night. Manager
Barbour has arranged for tickets to be
on sale ait Linn’s Drug Store at popu
lar prices; 25 cents general admission.
Squad Will Practice on Campus
Field—Varsity Games at
Midway Park
The Varsity baseball team will prac
tice on the field back of the library,
and the regular conference games will
take place at midway park. This was
the plan followed last year, and is
thought to be the best arrangement that
can be made under present circum
stances. The Doughnut league teams
will be privileged to practice on the
campus diamond only when it is not
occupied by the Varsity squad.
The league schedule has been ar
ranged so that Its games will not in
terfere to any extent with the squad
practice. Coach Lynch is expected Mon
day, and active practice will commence
during the coming week.

Trainer Hayward Asked to Select
All Northwest Team
For Guide
Trainer Hayward this morning re
ceived a letter from W. H. Fisher, edi
tor of Spalding’s Basketball Guide, ask
ing for a photo of the Oregon quintet,
and also asking “Bill” to select the offi
cial All-Northwest team, nnd it will be
published in the Spalding Guide for
1912. “Bill” considers any extended ex
planation of his choice unnecessary, but
states that the particular advantage
from placing Simms, aside from his
general ability, is that the Oregon man
is of an entirely different type than
Olson, the Washington guard, and thus
Bill believes the two would work to
gether unusually well.
Ten different kinds of open air sports
are in progress at the University of Wis
consin at present. Ice skating, football,
track, golf, tennis and baseball are all
carried on at the same time. Several
class skating tournapients have been
pulled off, while at the same time the
track, cross country and baseball men
are working out on the campus.
Esther Carson went to Salem for a
week end visit.

The Juniors defeated the Sophomores
Wednesday by a score of 9-6. Both
teams had scored s'x points when time
was called, and therefore five minutes
extra time was added, during which
the Juniors scored one foul and one
basket. Much interest and enthusiasm
was aroused by the rival bunches of
“rooters,” who counted the score, gave
impromptu yells with much vim, atnj
even serpentined between halves. The
Sophomore rooters were led by Faye
Ball and the Juniors by Mildred Bag
The lineups were: Sophomore—Bess
Morrison, Lillian Gilkey, Mildred Waite
forwards; Carin Degermark, Edith
Watt, centers; Grace Tiffany, Bess Lew
is, guards. Juniors—Ruth Gibson, Jen
nie Fry, Erma Clifford, Nellie Banfield,
forwards; Emma Waterman (c), Neta
Bartlett, centers; Jean Allison, Ruth
Gibson, Erma Clifford, guards.
Friday afternoon the Freshman team,
cheered on by an enthusiastic crowd of
Freshman girls, defeated the Sophomore
girls 24-4. The Sophomores fought hard
but discouraged by lack of support from
their class, went down before the supe
rior team work of the Freshmen.
C. H. Wooddy, of McMinnville,
. and Miss Rickard, of O. A.
C. Secure 2nd and 3rd
Carlton Spencer, ’13, won last night’s
oratorical contest, hands down, defeat
ing the. representatives of the six other
Oregon colleges. .
Spencer’s oration, “The Rust on Our
Legal Machinery,” was a masterly exam
ple of the. forensic art, and while ap
pealing and convincing, .was clear. and
logical enough to leav.e a definite im
pression on the tpinds of the audience
of the cause he was advocating, ..He
secured a rating of 13 1-2 points, being
awarded three seconds, on delivery,
which was better than iany other con
testant did in this department.
His closest competitor, Carroll H.
Wooddy, of McMinnville, the Rhodes
scholar-elect, received a grade of 15
and Vena Rickard, of O. A. C„ was
marked 19. . . . <
t-iarry u. racum; or wmamette, gave
the opening oration, “Liberty, Law and
Fresent Day Problems.’* Though some
what abstract, his oration was excep
tionally well delivered, and many
thought that his position in the order
of speaking prevented his effort from
being better appreciated. “The Minis
try of Poetry,” by Claude Newlin, of
Pacific College, followed. The Varsity
Glee Cluli then appeared with three
Oregon songs, and after an encore gave
way to Carlton' Spencer. - Though fa
vored by a home crowd. Spencer en
tered into his subject with spirit and
the remark was frequently heard that he
had never done so well before.
Grover C. Birchett, of Albany, came
next with “National Conservation,” in
which he pleaded for amelioration of
economic conditions so as to conserve
human lives as well as natural resources.
Miss Nell Murphy and Miss Alberta
Campbell rendered Saint Saens Dance
C. E. Ward, of Pacific University, de
livered “Optimism and Opportunity,”
and the program was concluded by a
strong oration by the O. A. C. reore
sentative, Miss Vena Rickard, “Our Du
ty Toward the Theater.” Tn this she
advocated the raising of the tone of the
stage to make it a distinctly educational
force. While the judges were delib
erating, the Glee appeared again.
Variety and spice were injected into
the evening’s program by the different
college yells, strenuously rendered ay
(the various delegations.
The judges were: Judges on compo
sition—Professor T. C. Trueblood, Uni
vxersity of Michigan; Professor E. D.
Shorter, University of Texas; President
S. B. Penrose, Whitman College. On
delivery—Rev. W. B. Hinson, Portland;
B. Lee Paget, Portland; Alfred C.
Schmidt, Albany.
