Why Not a Varsity Hand?
Perhaps we have never realized the
need of a college band quite so much
as we did this morning, when we lis
tened to the stirring strains of O.
A. P’s Cadet Band, which so kindly
favored us with an impromptu concert
in Villard Hall.
Think what an asset such an or
ganization would have been during
Junior Week Festival, or how delight
ful it would be to promenade about
the campus on these warm spring ev
enings, listening to the music of our
own brass band.
“Why don’t we have a band?” is a
question that has been asked for
years, and never once answered for
any length of time. Each year dur
ing football season such an organiza
tion is launched, but dies, soon, for
want of proper nourishing, and the
question lives on unanswered.
It is safe to say that Oregon will
never have a permanent band until
she can make it an incentive for stu
dents to “make” the band. Past ex
perience has shown that as long as
football games and a trip or two are
in sight, men will rehearse and will
play, but as soon as these are past
the interest dies out and so does the
home constant incentive must be
applied before a permanent band will
At O. A. Cw this constant element
is supplied by drill credits given band
members; at Oregon it must be
through semester credits, as we have
no military organization, for the
pleasure, honor, love of fellow stu
dents, free admission to games, etc.,
have proven themselves insufficient in
centives to perpetuate the interest in
The director also must be looked
after. At O. A. 0. he is a member
of the faculty and receives a salary.
At Oregon he is a student and is not
even paid that little Which was prom
ised him for the work during football
season. No man is going to take
charge of a bunch of amateurs and
work them up into a band by the very
sweat of his brow, unless he is paid
This is as good an answer to the
question, "Why don’t we have a
band?” as we can give. But we be
lieve it is a correct one, for it is
based upon four years' experience
with Oregon University bands.

REGENTS FROWN UPON
Parkinson Withholds Bill—General
Efficiency Committee Appointed
Millage Basis Proposed
Recent developments in the Univer
sity’s fight for her appropriation have
clarified the situation in regard to
present status of affairs, especially
since the joint meeting of the Regents
of the O. A. C. and U. of 0., held in
Salem last Saturday.
Governor West has appointed the
committee to investigate the advisa
bility of consolidation of the two in
stitutions, as he was recently request
ed to do. Until this committee has
reached its conclusions, favorable or
unfavorable to the University, J. H.
Parkinson has agreed to withhold his
initiative bill for the consolidation,
which, it is generally understood, he
has already prepared. If the report
opposes such a move, it is expected
that Parkinson will not file his pe
tition, thus settling a vexatious prob
lem for the University.
The assembled Regents unanimous
ly adopted the following resolution:
That it is the sense of the meeting
that the best educational interests of
the state cannot be promoted by con
solidation of the two educational in
stitutions.” The 0. A. C. Regents
were influenced in their decision by
the fact that experience has shown
that where the two schools have been
united, the agricultural department
has frequently been submerged in im
portance to the liberal arts depart
In an attempt to remove the sup
port of the institutions from the
whims of the voters, it was moved
and carried that the institutions be
placed upon a permanent millape ba
sis, and a joint repent committee was
appointed to work out the details of
the plan^and formulate a bill to that
Governor West appointed another
joint committee, known as the “pen
' eral efficiency committee,” which will
be permanent in character, and will
have for its object the promotion of
the peneral welfare of each institu
Judpe Slater has prepared a petition
to reopen the “Referendum case” on
its merits with Friendly as the plain
tiff. Should this prove an ineffec
tual method of obtaininp a rehearinp,
the Board of Repents decided to ask
the Governor to petition for a re
openinp of the case, with the district
attorney as the plaintiff, as was un
doubtedly the plan that the Supreme
Court had in mind when they handed
down the late decision.
President Campbell submitted a re
port showinp that fipures from other
institutions prove that seprepation
costs less to the taxpayers per capita
than does consolidation.

S 5-2 GAME
Jamie’s Men Take Sixth Conference
Contest of Season From
O. A. C. Nine
In the second 0. A. C. game on the
home diamond today, the Oregon
bunch defeated the visitors by a
score of 5-2. Captain Jamison’s men
put up the cleanest exhibition of ball
seen on the local grounds this year,
only two errors being entered on the
Oregon side of the score sheet, as
compared to five annexed by O. A.
Welsh ascended the mound for Or
egon, but before he had thoroughly
soiled the new pellet, allowed a hit
to go through which materialized
into a run. In the third inning the
Oregon slab artist crossed home,
bringing the score to a tie, which
held until the sixth, when 0. A. C.
sent in her final score and Cobb, Bar
bour and Jamison, of Oregon, romped
merrily in in rapid succession. At
this point in the game the sports
manship of the Aggie coach was
called into serious question by his
action in forcing Jamison to run for
Cobb when Jamie himself was next
In the seventh Jamison replaced
Walsh in the box, while Fenton was
shifted to first base, and was re
placed in turn by Peet. 0. A. C. tried
to plug a bad leak by putting Rieben
in the box, but Peet gobbled the new
man’s offerings and pulled down the
final tally for the Varsity.
