VOL. XIII. EUGENE. OREGON. SATURDAY, MARCH 23. 1912. No. 11 01C. CONSENTS TO PATCH UP QUARREL WITH‘SISTER OREGON’ APPOINTS COMMITTEE TO AR RANGE MATTERS FOR FUTURE RELATIONS OREGON MANAGER READY TO SIGN DATES Oregon Students Glad that Quarrel Has Ended and Anxious to Meet Old Rival. Now that Oregon and 0. A. C. are on speaking terms again, the fans in Oregon can look forward to some keen competition in the line of athletics. 0. A. C. will probably meet us this spring in track and baseball, but little hope is held out for a possible meet ing to settle the basketball squabble. On account of the strong sentiment on the campus in favor of the resumption of relations between the two colleges, it will not be necessary to call a stud ent body meeting, as no resolutions were made which need be rescinded. The matter will pass into the hands of Graduate Manager Geary, who will go ahead with his schedule for spring sports and next fall’s football game. The resolutions passed by the 0. A. C. Student Body read as follows: Resolved: “That the presiSent of the student body be instructed to ap point a committee of three members, of which he shall be one, and which shall include one other student and profes sor R. D. Hetzel, of the faculty. That this committee be and hereby is instructed to negotiate with the rep resentatives of the University of Ore gon for the establishment of student relations on a mutually satisfactory basis.” The student body voted to instruct the committee as follows: “That an understanding be reached between this committee and the repre sentatives of the University of Oregon which shall provide that the students of these two institutions shall meet upon a basis which recognizes their equal duties and obligations as stud ents of higher learning. “That to establish this relationship the committee shall enter into an agreement with the representatives of the University of Oregon which shall provide for the scheduling of athletic contests, including a football game for 1912; forensic and other activities consistent with the understanding and the friendliest lelations; that the rep rentatives of these institutions shall determine upon some course which shall guarantee as completely as pos sible to the students of each institu tion immunity from disparaging press reports emanating from the other.” PRESIDENT CAMPBELL TALKS TO Y. M. C. A. President P. L. Campbell gave an interesting talk to the Y. M. C. A. Thursday evening, on "The Choosing of a Life Work.” He believes that this is one of the greatest problems which a young man must faee and in deciding opon a pro fession he should have as his object, the greatest gobd for humanity. The community will reward a man accord ing to his service and ability. The leading requisite of success is the ability to work in harmony with other people. GreAt as is the value of in dividual endeavor in life, he eoirthfids that the great institutions of the world—tW Church, the StafA, and thA School, shodld not Sb‘ igttoTAd by anyone who wishes to succeed. . CARLTON SPENCER REPRESENTS OREGON — Carlton Spencer, of Cottage Grove, jwas the orator chosen in the tryouts held Wednesday night to represent the University of Oregon in its annual Interstate Oratorical Contest with the State Universities of Washington and Montana, Pullman, and Whitman, to take place at Missoula, May 25. Spen cer was the winner of the State Inter collegiate Contest last year, and two years ago, as a Freshman, won the Alumni Debate Medal given annually to the best debater in the University. The Oregon orator deals with “The Rust in Our Legal Machinery.” DORMITORY FRESHMEN RACE TO ESCAPE AN-NUAL SPLASH Friday evening, at 7 o’clock, the Dorm freshmen held their annual race from the front of the dormitory to the frog pond. The winners were Sidwell, and Airrey. The two finishing last, who went into the pond, were “Buddy” Ryan and Clarence Brotherton. There were about twenty applicants for positions of honor. The race was held under the protecting care of the Dorm up per-classmen. Elliot Roberts was starter, and George Shantin, Tubby Wentworth, and Bill Neil officiated at the finish. LEAGUE DIRECTORS MEET Baseball, Track, and Tennis Are Up for Discussion <}nd Await Action of Committees. A meeting of the directors of the: Interfraternity Athletic Association was held last Tuesday in the men’s dormitory and several important committees were appointed. A committee was appointed to ar range a schedule for the baseball games which will be played off in the near future. The games this year will probably be conducted under the same general rules as those in force last year. At the same time a committee was appointed to confer with Bill Hay ward concerning a track meet. Bill has been endeavoring to start some thing of the kind and has put up a handsome trophy cup to be awarded to the winner of the 440 in case the meet is pulled off. The question of a fraternity tennis tournament was also brought up, but since the subject is a new one, the matter was laid on the table until the representatives could determine the attitude of their fraternities on the matter. REFERENDUM DECISION POSTPONED AGAIN The decision of the Supreme Court in the now famous referendum case may be postponed another week. The decision was expected Tuesday, March 26, but the counsel for the state has asked for additional time. The President, Faculty, and Stud ents, who have watched the progress of the case from its beginning are hopeful of the ultimate outcome, but regret the contiual delays. If the Supreme Court decides in favor of the University, the construc tion of the buildings provided for in the appropriation will be begun im medlately, in ofder to have theiri as near completion as possible by next fall. It is hoped that at least one will be ready for occupancy by Sep tember. -- - - The Mu Phi Epsilons gave their ftfg&Sahet Rifling it Mrs!.' A. C. Dfx oh’i Mondky night.

T DRAMATIC CLUB WILL APPEAR IN ‘CANDIDA’ NEXT MONDAY NIGH CLEVER CAST PROMISES STAR ENTERTAINMENT FOR THOSE WHO ATTEND PLAY PROCEEDS TO INTERSCHOLASTIC MEET Prof. Reddie Puts Finishing Touches on Exceptional Array of Dram atic Talent. “The Student Body should give the Dramatic Club Play “Candida” their hearty support. It means the financ ing of the Interstate Track Meet, one of the best ways of advertising the University. If you want to help Oregon, you can’t find a better way, nor one out of which you will get more personal enjoyment. “There is Life and Action from the Rise of the Cur tain to the Fall.” In this way F. E. Dunton, president of the Dramatic Club, pleads for the support of the students for the club’s production, which will appear Monday evening, at the local theater. Under the direction of Prof. Reddie, the cast have held their last rehearsal today and confident of their cues, await the rise of the curtain, on what is said to be the most finished produc tion ever put on by an Oregon dram atic organization. As to “Candida,” the realistic pro blem play of Bernard Shaw, dealing with a woman’s struggle against pow erful forces of evil, little more can be said. On account of its classical character, Manager Warner is not over confident that the production will be a great financial success, as the expense of advertising has been a heavy item. Nevertheless, he ex pects to turn over a balance to the track meet. Along this same line, Manager Geary said, “The students should show their appreciation of the club’s offer to give half the proceeds to the track meet by their hearty support. I understand that “Candida” is a play of exceptional merit.” When asked for a statement, Prof. Reddie said he was satisfied with the work of the cast and their handling of the parts. He spoke especially of Dimm, the frosh actor, who as “Marshbanks,” the physically-good for-nothing poet, promises to make a hit. The cast is as follows: Proserpine Garnett, stenographer.. . Nancy Noon Rev. James Mavor Morell, Chris tian Scientist .Forrest Dunton Rev. Alexander Mill, his curate. .. . Frank Dudley Mr. Bdrgess, Candida’s father. .Alexander Martin Candida, wife of Morell.. .....,. Maude Beals Eugene Marshbanks, a poet. .Walter Dimm Scene: Morell’s study, St. Dominic’s parsonage, Hackney Road, Victoria Park, London. Time: The present. Seats are now selling atthe theater, 50c, 75c, and $1.00. Prof. Barnett Writes.

CO-ED DEBATE TRYOUT All Those Interested, Requested to Hand in Names Before April Second. At a meeting of the Committee on Oratory and Debate Monday evening, it was decided to hold the tryout for choosing the co-ed debating team, April 2. The committee recommend that all those intending to try for the teahi hand in their names to Earl Jones or Arthur Geary as soon as pos sible. It has been suggested by some that there will probably not be enough interested in the co-ed debate to just ify a contest. If such is the case, the committee are anxious to know it, and will not make further arrange ments with Washington. The subject dceided upon is, “Resolved, That equal suffrage should be adopted by the various states at the next elec tion. O. A. C. MAIDS PRACTICE ECONOMICAL COOKING According to recent advice received from O. A. C., the domestic science de partment of that school is turning out an exceedingly capable bunch of cooks and incidentally a lot of good raw ma terial for future wives is being devel oped. The girls, who are under the direc tion of Miss Milan, recently served a delectable chicken dinner for the small sum of twenty-two cents per plate. President Kerr, the State Exe cutive, and various other dignitaries, were present, and all were highly en thusiastic over the spread.

The registrar’s report indicating the individual scholarship of the Univer sity students and the compiled aver ages and standing of the various stud ent groups, is out and shows a de crease of fiom 13 to 8.1) per cent from last year. The women students generally show the highest grades, as seven groups of women are listed before any men’s organization. Mary Spiller Hall, the girl’s dormitory, stands at the head of the list with 88 per cent. Last year seven house averages wore above 88 per cent and only four out of the com plete list of twenty-one have im proved over last year’s standing. The new grading system, called the Missouri system, is largely responsible for the decrease in grades. While this system did not go into effect until this present semester, it was chosen by the faculty before last semester’s grades were banded in and is reported to have had the effect of causing the profes sors to tighten up in their markings. Another notable fact is that the students whose permanent homes are in Eugene, show a higher general average than the out of town stud ents. The following is the order of the houses with respect to standing ac cording to the grades given out by the registrar: Mary Spiller Hall (the girls’ dormi tory), 88 per cent; Lambda Rho soror ity, 87.9 per cent; Chi Omega sorority, 87.6 per cent; women living in Eugene, 87.4 per cent; Gamma Delta Gamma sorority, 86.8 per cent; Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, 86.2 per cent; men liv ing in town, 86.1 per cent; Tri Delta sorority, 85.8 per cent; Gamma Phi Beta sorority, 85.6 per cent; men’s dormitory, 85 per cent; Delta Sigma fraternity, 84.7 per cent; Acacia fra ternity, 84.1 per cent; Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, 8.1.7 per cent; Kap pa Sigma fraternity, 83.7 per cent; Avava Club (men’s), 83 per cent; Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, 82.8 per cent; Beta Theta Pi fraternity, 82.6 per cent; Sigma Chi fraternity, 81.1 per cent, and Tawah Club. (9.1 per cent. In computing these figures the au thorities averaged “A” grades (95 to 100), at 96; “B” grades (f)0 to 95), at 9t per cent; “C” grades (80 to 90), at 85 per cent; “D” grades (70 to 86), at 75 per cent; conditional work at 70 per cent, and “E” grades (below 70), at 60 per cent. Work uncompleted was not included in the estimates. President Ackerman Will Speak. The speaker ( at next Wednesday’s assembly will be Pres. A. H.
