FOR INTER-FRAT LEAGUE
Clubs and Fraternities Will Meet to
Reorganize and Consider Indoor
The latest movement in inter-col
legiate athletic circles is the agita
tion for an Interfraternity Indoor
Baseball League. As yet no definite
plans have been formulated, but it is
probable that early next week a meet
ing of the representatives of the dif
ferent clubs and fraternities will be
held. Organization will be perfected
and officers will be elected to take
charge of the proposition.
If indoor baseball is not taken up
the league will very likely take over
the business of the interfrat outdoor
baseball series, which has been played
since the days of the late lamented
In case these plans materialize, the
different organizations will be asked
to send a representative to the con

The plan is to play a game of three

also look into the possibility of a
game with the famous Dallas team.
That team is anxious to play the

DEFENDS HIS ORDEF
Says Leagues Are Conducted to Brinj
Out Varsity Material, and the
End is Realized.
To the Oregon Emerald:
In your issue of Wednesday last
noticed an article in which Presiden
Johns of the Beta Theta Pi fra tern
ity gave out the following statement
“The inter-fraternity leagues havt
failed to accomplish the purposes foi
which they were formed, instead 01
bringing the fraternities into closei
relationship with each other thej
only increase the gulfs which wert
large in the beginning and empha
size fraternity loyalty to the detri
ment of the larger and better college
As the trouble has arisen in the
basketball league, of which I am
president, I feel called upon to take
issue with Mr. John’s arguments.
These leagues were not organized
to bring the fraternities into closer
relationship with each other, neither
were they formed to settle the petty
animosities which exist between the
various fraternities. Rather were
they instituted to provide contests
wherein non-athletically inclined stu
dents might be given opportunity to
participate; to stimulate interest
among the mediocre players so that
Varsity material might be developed;
and to arouse enthusiasm among the
students at large to the end that the
University teams be given proper
support. Unquestionably these re
sults have been obtained. As Mr.
Hayward expressed himself the other
day: “These inter-fraternity series
have developed and brought forward
more good material than could be
gotten out in any other concievable
The only games in which there have
been objectionable features or any
display that might impair college
loyalty were those contests between
fraternities which have had previous
difficulties foreign to athletics. In
most of the games the best of sports
manship prevailed and there was a
feeling of good fellowship that
strengthened the relationship be
tween the “bunches.”
It is my opinion that the leagues
should be perpetuated because they
certainly do accomplish the purposes
for which they were formed. If the
fraternities can not settle their petty
jealousies without dragging the
leagues into the mire, it is well and
good that they remain outside them.
