INTER-FRAT LEAGUE PUT
UPON PERMANENT BASIS
Eleven Organizations Look With
Favor Fpon Continuing Athletic
With the exception of Beta Theta
Pi, which was invited but failed to re
spond, all the fraternities and clubs
were represented at the organization
of the inter-fraternity league confer
ence, which met Tuesday afternoon.
The aim of the council will be to
place the interfraternity league con
tests upon a more general and sub
stantial basis and to substitute for the
special boards of management for
each of the leagues, one general con
ference which shall posses larger
powers and be better qualified to deal
with the questions arising. It is also
hoped that through such co-operation
the fraternities and clubs may be
brought into better understanding
with each other.
The sense of the meeting was that
each organization should be repre
sented throughout the year by one
permanent delegate in the council
and that all business of the leagues
should be administered by that body.
Sentiment also favored choosing the
officers by rotation to avoid political

Don Evans of the University of

looking to the new material to de

this year will not fall far behind
those of the last two seasons. In
speaking of the prospects the Wash

“While prospects are not rosy,
neither are they gloomy, for with Ira

myself and some good men who I hope
will enter in February as a nucleus,
we hope to have a fairly representa

GOOD ROAD ECONOMICS
TITLE OREGON BULLETIN
l’rof. Young Writes Treatise On
Subject Advocating State
“The Economics of Oregon's Good
Roads Problem” is the title of the
University of Oregon Bulletin for
January, written by Prof. F. G.
Young, head of the department of Ec
onomics and Sociology.
This bulletin was written with a
view of presenting to the communities
and districts that are struggling with
this question of good roads, a compact
and concise treatise, setting forth the
why and wherefore of suitable high
ways especially from the farmer’s, or
the economic view point. A special
study is made of the failure of past
and present policies in regard to road
construction and maintenance, and in
their stead a tentative plan for state
cooperation in regard to construction,
determination of cost and apportion
ment of funds is suggested.
After pointing out the necessary
factors for any system of road im
provement, as adequate plans and a
just apportionment of the cost of con
struction, Prof. Young shows that
good roads are Oregon’s most pressing
need, and this is so since the solution
of the back-to-the-farm movement and
improvement of rural conditions, lies
with the construction of better means
Touching the more fundamental
economics of the problem, it is shown
that the type of road, necessarily
good, will be determined by the char
acter and volume of traffic, which has
to justify any initial high cost.
In conclusion it is noted that every
locality has its special problems that
it must work out for itself with ex
pert technical service, especially
since the automobile adds a new phase
to actual road engineering, and that
since the present county system has
been found wanting, a state system
of aid and administration is advisable,
as the highways of a state should he
considered an organic whole.

the game was won by Washington
State by a score of 31-5. Idaho, how
ever, did not play her best game, and
was extremely unlucky in shooting
