TEN TO ONE SCORE OF THURS
DAY’S ONE-SIDED DOUGHNUT
SIGMA NU’S CAPTURE A. T. 0. GAME 4-3
First Interfrat Series Finished—Sec
ond Round Begins This After
The Doughnut League resumed
operations Thursday, with a bang,
when the Fijis ate up the Acacias to
the tune of ten to one.
The game was one-sided through
out, the Fiji tribesmen connecting
with Doc Smith’s delivery at regular
intervals, while Word held the Acacia
band at his mercy throughout the en
tire fiasco. The chief points of inter
est from the spectators viewpoint
were undoubtedly Grayson’s pajama
baseball suit and Meek’s graceful
broad jump for a base. In the third
inning Umpire Jamison became dis
couraged at the prospect of an all
night stand and surrendered his job to

Yesterday evening the A. T. 0.
prospects fell ill and took a small bit
ter pill prepared by the Sigma Nu
athletes, whose prescription read:
Sigma Nu, 4; Alpha Tau Omega, 3.
Motchenbacher heaved the pellet
for the A. T. O.’s and established a
new college record by walking the
first five men up. He was replaced at
this point in the game by Prexy
Finch. The surprise of the afternoon
came in the fourth canto when Goold
annexed Chandler’s high ball with the
ease of an old timer at the business.
Viereck, the A. T. O.’s backstop, is
the find of the season, and with a lit
tle practice will undoubtedly be able
to catch the third strike anyway. The
game on the whole wTas close and ran
an extra inning for the deciding run.

Y. M. PLANS CONFERENCE
Association Men From Northwest
Colleges Will Attend Big Beach
The Annual Y. M. C. A. Conference
will be held at Columbia Beach from
the 13th to the 23d of June, and a
large delegation of men from all the
principal universities of the North
west are expected.
The aim of this conference is the
closer organization of the Y. M. C. A.
work of the Northwest, but an effort
will be made to make recreation as
sume as important a position as the
purely intellectual side.
The mornings will be given over to
Bible classes, mission study, and plat
form addresses. It is planned to de
vote the afternoons to sports, such as
baseball, tennis, track, and hikes
along the beach and into the moun
tains. The evenings are to be taken
up with delegation meetings, vocation
al institutes, life work addresses, and
short study periods. Among the
speakers are such prominent men as
Dr. John Timothy Stone, of Chicago,
Dr. John H. Boyd, of Portland, Dean
J. G. Eldridge, of the University of
Idaho, Dr. Ivan B. Rhodes and Mr. R.
R. Perkins, both of Portland, and Mr.
Ethan Smith, of Seattle.
At present ten Oregon men have
signified their intention of attending.
DEFINED BY DR. PARSONS
For the last regular Y. M. C. A.
meeting of the year Dr. Parsons, of
the local Presbyterian Church, spoke
to the men on the “Intellectual Con
sistency in Christianity.”
In treating his subject, he divided
the scope of Christianity into a Chris
tian philisophy, a Christian religion,
the personal experimental life, and a
System of Ethics.
He defined a four square man as
one who was essentially right on all
of these propositions, and he applied
the term “amphibious” to the man
who could evade one of these essen
tials, yet openly profess the others.
The next Y. M. meeting will be a
novelty in the form of a Senior meet
ing, being conducted solely by mem
bers of that class.
Dr. Rebec will give his third lecture
on “Revolutionary China” next Tues
day evening, in Dr. Schmidt’s room.
Miss Katherine Carson is at the
Gamma Phi house this week.
Olive Donnell will visit the Gamma
Delta Gammas over the week end.
Mr. Pague, of Portland, is visiting
his son Donald at the Avava house.

The exact lineup of the team has
not been announced, but will be se

ately after his return from the Olym
pic tryouts in Califoi’nia. The Oregon
tennis team will accompany the track
team north and will compete in the
annual tournament with the Wash
ington racket wielders.
The Northwest championship last
year was won easily by the Oregon
representatives from the University
of Washington, the only other
contestant for the honor. The fact,
however, that Newland, the varsity’s
tennis star of last year, will not be
able to play this year, may lessen ma

Former conferences have been held
