LET ER RAIN
The presentation of “The Clouds”
is expected to rain a few welcome
sheckels into the Student Body treas
ury. In other words the silver lining
of “The Clouds” will go to the Asso
ciated Students. The treasury cer
tainly needs silver from somewhere.
Here’s hoping there is an abundance.
But hoping isn’t enough. See that
there is. It’s that or bankruptcy. Do
you care which ?
“The Clouds” is a first class play;
absolutely the best ever put on by
the University students. No one can
afford to miss it.
Don’t let him.
It’s for the Student Body.
Every student boost; we’ll get out
of debt and start our activities next
year with a clear field. It’s worth

ON STUDENTS’ WORK
Monday’s Morning Oregonian had
the following editorial comment upon
the work done by the students in the
class in journalism last Tuesday even

men and women did the job so well

WHAT THE COLLEGE EDITORS ARE SAYING
V U V U V u tj u u u u u
O. A. C. WANTS THE OTHER
FELLOW TO CLEAN UP
“Why did W. S. C. win Friday? Did
Coach Bender give the O. A. C. bunch
a square deal when he withheld his
evidence against Hauser until the last
moment? Furthermore, are the two
Pullman stars, Keinholtz and Apple
quist, as unpolluted with the stain
of professionalism as Coach Bender
would have us believe?
“These are a few questions that are
puzzling the followers of the grid
iron game. Coach Bender evidently
considers it good sportsmanship to
act as he did regarding Hauser, but
there are many who disagree with
him. The Pullman coach purposely
refrained from submitting his evi
dence to the O. A. C. faculty commit
tee, and allowed Dolan to develop a
backfield around Hauser. Then
shortly before the game, he produced
evidence, and as a result of this doubt
ful strategy, in connection with sev
eral other circumstances unfavorable
to O. A. C., managed to get on to the
big end of the score.
“The W. S. C. students are good
sports and their coach’s actions prob
ably do not meet with their approval.
Bender has shown once more, of just
what stuff he is composed. It is
such “dirty work” as this that is re
sponsible for the undesirable fea
tures which exist in Inter-collegiate
“W. S. C. played two men whose el
igibility is doubtful. Investigations
are now being conducted which will
determine definitely whether or not
Keinholtz and Applequist are profes
sionals. The result of this investiga
tion is awaited with interest, as it
will have a vital bearing on the stand
ing of Bender’s team in the Confer
ence.”—O. A. C. Barometer.
PAPER MEN COMING
Replies From Editors Show That
Interest Is Being Taken In
Replies to letters sent out by Pro
fessor Allen, of the Department of
Journalism, to editors throughout the
state, in regard to the newspaper men
who will be here for the conference
Friday and Saturday of this week,
are being received.
C. Clinton Page, editor of the Al
bany Evening Herald, and formerly
of this city, replied that he would be
here, and added that "1 am with you
heart and soul in your work, and if
I may assist you with the Evening
Herald at any time, the pleasure is
George M. Cornwall, editor of the
Timberman, of Portland, accepted the
invitation, and said that "1 have been
watching with a great deal of in
terest yoru efforts in the establish
ment of a chair to cover this great
field at the University of Oregon,
which is indeed highly commendable.
My best wishes for your success.”
Hugh Hume, editor of the Port
land Spectator, was not able to at
tend, but as his part in aiding the
work, said that he had put the Uni
versity School of Journalism on the
free list of his paper. A. (1. Carruth,
editor of the Carlton Sentinel, sent
Y. W. C. A. DRINKS TEA
AND PRAYS FOR AFRICA
The first of the series of meetings
of the "Week of Prayer” was held
Monday afternoon by the Y. W. C. A.
The custom of devoting a week each
year to prayer for the different na
tions and their missions is adhered to
by all the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C.
A.’s branches in the world. Africa
was the country especially prayed for
yesterday; the general subject of the
meeting was Prayer, discussed by
After the meeting, the girls spent
a social hour over the tea cups, as
the guests of Mrs. Fletcher. "This
social hour is the first of many 1
have planned. 1 hope we may have
one each month,” she said.
Coach Gilmour Dobie of Washing
ton announces that when his present
contract expires at the end of the
1913 season, he will retire from foot
CLEAN UP ATHLETICS
“Only last spring a regent of the
University told us in assembly how
much purer from professionalism our
conference was than some Eastern
athletic leagues. And despite the fact
that several baseball nines at that
very time were known to have pro
fessionals on their teams, we sat back
comfortably in our seats and medi
tated on how good we were.
“This fall’s football experience
proves again that his praise was al
together undeserved. There has been
scarcely a contest this year but has
seen the protesting of some player.
Already one man has been disbarred,
and other men are confronted with
charges which seem to have a rea
sonable basis of truth.
“The situation is decidedly serious.
When college men cannot conduct
their sports on a foundation of com
mon honesty and sportsmanship there
are ample grounds on which the ha
bitual knocker of higher education
may base his attacks. It is a serious
reflection on the moral thinking of
“To look at the more material side
of the question, such a lapse from
good faith is sure to arouse feelings
which will inevitably lead to the
breaking up of the conference—so an
authority so well informed as Coach
Gilmour Dobie assures us. So long
as colleges protest back and forth
every chanpionship contest in an en
tire season, it is hopeless to look for
the harmony and good feeling neces
sary to success in a conference.
“The situation is not new, but it
does exist in a more aggravated con
dition than ever before. Athletic
authorities, in their annual meetings
around the conference, have staved
off any decisive action as long as they
can. It’s about time for us to clean
house and start over again.”—U. of
QUESTION CHOICE MADE
The Debate Council, together with
the members of the University de
bating teams, made the Oregon choice
this afternoon upon the debate ques
tions submitted by the Universities
of Washington and Stanford. The
University’s contribution, the Immi
gration question, was favored by the
Council, with Stanford’s proposal, Ab
solute Arbitration, second in their
estimation. The Washington ques
tion, the Single Tax, was third.
The final question for debate will
be known as soon as the other in
stitutions are heard from, making
their choice the same as the Couicil
did this afternoon.
Three thousand athletic tickets have
