In the big Emerald election held on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, Theodore Roosevelt, of New York, was endorsed by the Oregon faculty and student body for United States presidential nominee. By a margin of 53 votes over the next nearest candidate, William H. Taft, the varsity voters voiced their preference for the great ex-president and national idol, whose fame and favor gained as a soldier, statesman, lion hunter, and political leader, seems deeply rooted in the hearts of the student generation of the Oregon peo ple. The Woman Suffrage issue was car ried by 31 votes, due to the enthus iastic electioneering of the varsity suffragettes. A stubborn resistance to the suffrage measure was voiced by the vote of the varsity men, but the faculty enlisted their support with the co-eds, resulting in victory perch ing on the banner of the women. The compulsory subscription to the Emerald was voiced «y an overwhelm Continued on Supplement. CLUB WILL SHARE PROCEEDS WITH HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES In order to give the Interscholastic Track meet, which occures during Ju nior Week-End a financial boost, fifty per cent of the net proceeds from the Dramatic Club’s “Candida,” to be given March 25th, will be donated by Manager Warner to that enterprise. Giving one of Bernard Shaw’s plays, which should be of interest to students of English literature, it is hoped that last year’s success may be repeated. If so, the club manage ment will turn over a neat sum to the athletic affair, feeling that it can do so, since there is now a balance of nearly one hundred dollars in the club treasury. ******** ** * BUSHER CALLS TO LOYAL * SONS OF OREGON FOR NOISE $jtc9|c:|c:fci|e3|c:|c $ $ In order to encourage the men and put a little pip into the Washington games, “Yell Leader" Brown will con duct organized rooting and urges every man in college to attend at least one of the games and help out the rooting section. This is the first time organized rooting has been at tempted at a basketball game, and an effort will be made to make it of value. EARLY PRACTICE SLOW Jamison Still Busy With Basketball— Freshman Material a Disap pointment. Captain Jamison is still busy at basketball, so, until after the Wash ington game, baseball practice is held under the direction of Cady Roberts. So far the work has been only to get the men into form and limber up the rusty Joints, the “sur vival-of-the-fittest” system will not be in operation until the warm days have given all candidates an equal chance. Budding world-beaters seem rather scarce in the freshmen class. It was hoped that some good material might be drawn from the babes, and they will probably show up better with the winter stiffness worked out. The diamond has been worked over several times during the last week, so that it is now in fairly good condi tion. Kay and Latourette have both turned from track and decided to take a fling at baseball. The freshmen who have reported so far are: Vosper, Welch, Lytle, Moore, Bigbee, Dorris, and Grady. Socialists Will Convene. The Twentieth Century Club, which met for the first time last Wed nesday evening, made arrangements for its second regular meeting, to be held next winter. Several musical numbers will be provided, and a cap able speaker secured. The Club is organized for the pur pose of studying twentieth century social problems, chief among which is socialism. Officers of the organ ization will make further announce ments later. Mathew S. Wallis, B. S., ’78, one of the five members of the first graduat ing class, lives in Eugene. Mrs. Esther Johnson Jakway, ’01, :s at home at 308 East 38th street, Dortland, Ore. Katherine Daisy Crawford, B. A. ’06, is living in Portland. OREGON PREPARES FOR CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT WITH NORTHERN TEAM HAYWARD S MEN RESTED FROM W. S. C. GAME AND IN PINK OF CONDITION 01C. VICTORY BOOSTS OUR PROSPECTS Defeat of Washington by Aggies Gives Oregon Higher Northwest Standing. Everything is now in readiness for the two biggest games of the basket ball season, which are scheduled for Thursday and Friday night. The en tire house has been sold out for both nights, and many late ones are still clamoring for seats. Following the two Washington games in Seattle, the Northern team has been looked on as well-nigh in vincible, but two straight defeats, ad ministered by Dallas and O. A. C. re spectively, has put an entirely differ ent light on the matter, while the lat ter game will give Oregon a lighting chance for the championship. In case Washington walks off with the second Corvallis game, and Oregon can annex both games here, the pennant will go to the lemon-yellow five. Otherwise the honor will lie bewteen the Aggies and the visiting bunch. During the W. S. C.-Oregon contest pulled off here. Hayward’s basket shooters showed unmistakable signs of staleness, but a four days rest fol lowing the game, has remedied that defect and at present Hayward re ports the team in first class condition for the championship struggle. When the whistle blows, Oregon will line up with the same team that starred in the Pullman game, and a large assortment of second team men to choose from in case of accidents. Washington has had a substantial ad dition to its shooting force since last semester in Oleson, who starred last season as a straight-shooting, long winded forward. Immediately after the Friday’s game a dance will De given in the men’s gym in honor of the winning team. The affair will be necessarily short, but will probably be prolonged enough for those who have taken an active part in the earlier struggle. No admission at the dance will be charged to those who have attended the game. FRESHMAN GIRLS DEFEAT EUGENE HIGH SCHOOL The Freshman girls defeated the Eugene High School team at basket ball Monday afternoon by a score of 27 to 17. The Freshmen put up by far the better exhibition, although the High School girls played a hard game. The greater part of the score was made on foul throws. Dr. Stewart and Miss Muir offi ciated. The Freshman lineup was: forward, Edra Moffett (captain), Edna Harvey; centers, Fairy Leach, May Searay; guards, Ada Hall, Ruth Sears. Moda Goldsmith is visiting her cou sin, Frieda Goldsmith. Word has been received that Marie Zimmerman, ex-’13, contracted diph theria while traveling in California with her mother. CHEMISTRY CLUB DISCUSSES SMOKE IN ITS VARIOUS FORMS At the meeting of the Chemistry Club Monday afternoon in McClure Hall, smoke in all its different phases was the principle subject discussed. Prof. Stafford gave an illustrated lecture on the process of smelting. Ernest Lamb treated the injurious ef fects of smelter smoke, while Carrol Wagner, with Harold Cockerline as sisting, demonstrated the electrical precipitation of this smoke. Lyle Brown discussed the Baghouse meth od of destroying obnoxious smelter gases. The next meeting of the club will be taken up with Prof. Shinn’s lec ture on radium. “Squee” Ramp Is Near Hero. “Squee” Ramp, ’08, a socialist agi tator, formerly a prominent Varsity student, nearly quelled a riot at a re cent meeting in Portland, where a socialist crowd took exception to some remarks made by Gen. Baden-Powell, concerning the Boy Scout movement. The crowd, which had constantly in terrupted the speaker, became riotous at the close of the meeting, when “Squee” endeavored to control the I. W. W.’s and his fellow Socialists, but he was only partially successful. Second Annaul Event Expected to Exceed One of Last fear as All around Success. The Second Annual County Fair, which has been boosted for the last three months, is scheduled for Satur day night, March 16, and it is expect ed to exceed the famous “Mardi Gras” of last year, as a simultaneous scream and an all around success. The fair will be more realistic than ever with its spielers, confetti, bunco games, etc. Posters will appear Thursday, bear ing a detailed and true account of all the wonders that are to be had for the small consideration of 5 and 10 cents, in the line of Dante’s Inferno, Mutt and Jeff, the roulette wheel, liv ing statues, streets of Cairo, German beer garden, chute the chutes, three ring circus, everybody’s doing it, gay Paree, an Iggorotte village, and other attractions too numerous to men tion. The Orpheum has not yet an nounced its program, but it is rum ored that a slight of hand performer has been procured, who could make use of the elusive “pony” under the most unfavorable conditions. The minstrel show will be full of spark ling wit, good music, and local hits. ANNUAL APRIL FROLIC SET FOR MARCH THE 29TH March 29this the date set for the fifth “April Frolic,” the annual Co-ed affair. This “suffragette high jinks” will take place in the men’s gymna sium, as usual, and every girl in col lege, and the faculty women as well, are supposed to appear in some orig inal and grotesque costume. Stunts, this year, will be limited to 12 in number, and to ten minutes in length. Therefore those who are to perform, must report as soon as possible to the committee, Clemen tine Cutler and Frieda Goldsmith.

The interest which the women of the University take in politics was shown by the fact that one hundred and seventy-five co-eds out of three hundred cast their ballots, and with the assitance of the faculty suc ceeded in carrying the election for equal suffrage by a total vote of 257 to 226. For Presidential nominee, Theodore Roosevelt was first in the co-ed heart with 66 votes, Wilson second with 47, and as no one loves a fat man, Taft ran a bad third with 29. The rest of the presidential timber was variously favored. La Follette, 13, Bryan, 11, Clark and Debs each got 3. Harmon was forgotten in the rush. It was possible to count the co-ed vote separately, because the promo tors of the election had the ballots printed on a different stock of paper. The men were supplied with ballots printed on white book paper and the women were given ballots on ordinary newspaper stock. The voters were unable to tell the difference, but the counters being on the alert, could readily pick out the feminine ballots. The faculty vote was placed in a sep arate box. The faculty and the men student voters landed Taft in second place Continued on page four.
