The Oregana will be out the first
of next week; a full week before
Junior Week End. This comes as a
surprise to every one as each suc
ceeding staff has always promised to
have the book out by the Junior Week
End, but so far as is known by the
| present college 'generation such a
i promise has never before been ful
( Editor Chester Moores spent the
| entire Easter vacation in Portland
supervising the arrangement of the
material and personally reading all of
s the proof.
Before he returned to college, the
first of the present week, he had the
satisfaction of seeing a copy of the
book in its final form, and of receiving
a definite promise from the printer
that the books would be published and
shipped to Eugene by Monday, May 1.
Though the Oregana is coming from
the press early this year, that fact
will not in any way impair its value.
This year’s book contains 320 pages
or 64 pages more than the one issued
last year. Moreover, the staff prom
ise some startling and sensational
S revelations in the way of slams and
stories on prominent individuals who
have succeeded in making themselves
f conspicuous about the campus.
In the literary department, besides
articles by various members of the
staff, there are special contributions
by Dean Collins, Charles Robinson,
Tom Burke, Bill Cass, Alma Noon and
Francas Oberteuffer.
The artists who have aided in
making the edition attractive and
unique, are: Lucile McQuin, Lucile
Abrams, Christine Wade, Margurite
Rankin, Jack Luckey, Cecil Kav,
Harry Vierick and Oscar Hangen.

California, Stanford, Washington and
Oregon, Is Order in All-Coast
Track Meet.
Defeated but undaunted the varsity
track team returned Tuesday morning
from the second annual all-coast
track meet held under the auspices
I of the University of California. Four
j Pacific Coast collges participated in
; this meet viz: California, Stanford,
Washington and Oregon. The teams
i finished in the order named with 60,
! 42, 17 and 12 points respectively.
In nine of the thirteen events last
years’ records were broken. The new
marks are: 4:30 for the mile; 10.1
for the 100; 23 for the 220; 10:25.3
for the 2-mile; 1:58.4 for the 880;
3:23 for the relay; 149 for the ham- i
mer; 42:9.5 for the shot; 6:2 for the
high jump.
Far from being discouraged with
last place Trainer Hayward is not
disappointed and believes the trip
fully worth while as giving the men
excellent training and giving a line
on Washington’s strength.
Ten Lanes Will Be Capacity of the
Varsity Oval for Preparatory
Track Meet.
Grading has begun on the track
to widen it to: admit ten lanes in the
twenty-two dashes and hurdles. Also
the straightaway will allow ten men
to run at onpe. This will eliminate
too many preliminary races before
the finals, and will be of great benefit
to the Prep school athletes in the
■Interscholastic meet. In most of
the high school meets held heretofore
some of the best men have been
overworked because they had to run
three races for each event in which
j they were entered. When the teams
come from a great distance and can
not bring many men it has been
j necessary for the athletes to enter in
several events consequently many
men, who show promise if better
work in college, run themselves out in
prep school because they have not the
advantages of a competent trainer
and are allowed to overwork them
selves when not in the best condition.
Trainer Havward believes that the
system of fewer races will admit of
faster time being made in the finals.
Twenty-eight hijrh schools and
academies will enter teams in the
: Interscholastic Track and Field Meet
to be held on Junior Week end making
the largest aggregation of prep school
athletes ever lined up for a meet rn
Manager Cockerline reports that
four high schools which have never
put out a track team before have sig
nified their intention of entering the
meet; also Salem Hilgh will send a
team. The new high schools are
Condon, St. Johns, Athena, and Dav
Suffragettes, Gold Dust Twins, Harem
Skirt, Going, Going, Gone,
Were There.
The Apjil Frolic was the biggest
and best ever—-a rollicking spirit of
fun prevailed throughout the whole
evening. The costumes langed from
the beautiful to the screamingly ridi
culous, from the artist’s model and
the dainty Japanese maid, to the col
lege Rah Rah boy, the amazonian
suffragette, Irish wash woman, and
colored mammy.
Many of the stunts were clever in
the extreme—the faculty ladies gave
a topsy-turvy circus song which
c eated much wonderment; eight of
the Kappa Alpha Theta girls as un
sophisticated frashmen gave a song
and dance; Gamma Delta Gamma
gave a ludicrous interpretation of
aesthetic Greek dancing which de
lighted the audience with its extreme
naturalness and grace. Mrs. and
Mrs. Fizzler Johnson and their re
markable humanophone, whose reper
toire consisted of the one touching
ballad," For Heaven Will Protect the
Working Girl,” represented the Tri
Deltas. The Chi Omega girls illus
trated the “Cycle of Skirts,” with il
lustrations from hoops to harem. The
Hungry Seven of the Gamma Phis
gave a German phantom band song
and the Beth Reah’s illustrated Case.v
Jones in a manner most tragic and
heartrending. The living advertise
ments were excellent and the Oregon
Club girls gave a daisy song; the
Euteaxians were howling suffragettes
in a mock debate and the Lambda
Rhos closed the program with 3
pantomine, a modernized story o1
Galatea and Pygmalion.
Following the program the 81
girls danced and were served with ice
cream cones. All in all, it was one
of the best times the college girl
counts in her collge year.
The class of 1913 scored a scoop for
its Oregona Ly securing a number of
clever flashlight pictures to be usee
in the College Life department.

Washington Must Be Defeated—She
Must Be Shown Who Bill
Hayward Is.
On Tuesday night May 2 a gigantic
smokerless smoker similar to the one
held last football season will be held
in the Gym to boom interest in track
and baseball. The coming smoker is
to be crammed full of novel and in
teiesting stunts the entire program or
which is not yet complete and only :i
partial list of events can be given
out at present. Whether there will
be a parade down town or not depends
upon the decision of the powers that
be, but if there is a parade, it will be
worth while.
One of the first events to be pulled
off will be the Great Salve Spreading
contest by candidates, prospective and
otherwise. The Freshman Glee Club
which recently created such a furore
will be called upon to sing and Mr.
Mr. Lamm’s Carusian tones will again
blend with the cheering. Willie De
Muggs, of Seattle, will be the speaker
of the evening and will deliver an
address on “College Men Who Have
Met Me.” He will be followed by
prominent University silver tongues
and an abundant talk-fest is assured.
The hit of the evening willb ete’n
The hit of the evening will be the
mock canoe carnival. A king of the
Carnival will be elected and the full
program of aquatic sports will be
run through. “Hippo” Gillis will
give to the world the results of his
experiments in motor boating. Mr.
Gillis has secured the engine out of a
recently junked automobile and will
attach it to the rowing machine in
the Gym. Jack Luckey has promised
to speak on “A Trip to the Pole.”
There will be plenty of “Eats, Drinks,
and Be Merries,” for educated men but
the co-educated masculine element
will be barred from partaking of the
refreshments. The co-eds may wit
ness the festivities from the gallery.
This is positively the last appear
ance of the famous smokerless
smoker of the old regime—all others
will be imitations—this is the last
of the originals. Those who attended
the one held last fall need no intro

did not have the shinienated oppor

The first co-ed track meet ever held
in Washington is scheduled definitely
for the last week in May on Denny
Field. Besides the events borrowed
from men’s athletics, they will use
several features taken from the Gre
cian games, such as the torch race,
(discus hurling and spirting. More
than fifty girls are training- for the
events under the coaching of Dr. Hall
and Miss Merrick, and some of them
are doing remarkably good work.
Eleven events are scheduled: Forty
yard dash, shot put (8 pounds), low
hordl-s (2 feet), throwing the basket
; ball for distance, the relay ' ace, torch
i race, discus hurling and short dash.
