Jan. 10.—Girls in the University of Washington are healthier and better proportioned than those of almost any other col lege in the country, according to data submitted by Miss Jessie Merrick, women’s physical director. “Men are most interested in the height and weight of girls. Women are concerned with girls’ measure ments. Neither have any bearing on the physical condition of the indi vidual. That which counts is the lung capacity and the size of the muscles.” The breathing space of the average University of Washington girl is 168.23 cubic centimeters. This is two hundredths of a centimeter greater than the average at the University of Oregon. The average Washington girl weighs 120 pounds and is five feet two inches tall. LEGISLATIVE TERM SHORT SITS EATON Forty Day Session Handicaps Law makers, Is Contention—Other Reforms Favored. “The House works under disadvan- j tages which we cannot well remove, j One is the short session, and the other is the great volume of legisla tion.” This statement comes from Hon. Allen H. Eaton, who is now at tending the State Legislature, which convened yesterday. The idea is the same as that which Hon. W. W. Cal kins gave to the members of the Agora Club last week. Mr. Eaton has many reforms which he intends to introduce in the present session of Legislature. “Oregon’s term of 40 days is the shortest of any state in the Union,” he continued. “This time ought to be extended, but to do so will require a constitutional amendment.” Two years ago Mr. Eaton, a Uni versity of Oregon graduate, ran for the Speakership of the House of Representatives and was defeated. At the time of Eaton’s defeat, it was rumored that Rusk, his successful op ponent, had secured support in the Legislature by promises of commit tee assignments. Whether this was true or not, was a matter of much discussion. At this session of the Legislature. Mr. Eaton will introduce a number of needed reforms for House rules, prominent among which is a bill intended to prevent political maneuvers for the election of the Speaker. Other features of Mr. Eaton’s re form plan are: (Continued on last page.) “BARGAIN SALE'' CONCERT IS NAME GIVEN BV MANAGER TO GLEE CLUB SECOND SHOW Better than ever promises to be the return concert of the University of Oregon Glee Club, to be given at the Eugene Theatre, Friday evening, January 17, for which bargain prices have been announced by Manager Geary, any seat in the house going for fifty cents.

GAME WITH 31 TO 6 SCORE GRIFFITH'S Ql'INTET OCCASIONS DISAPPOINTMENT TO FOCAL FANS—WAFKElt STARS FOR VICTORS, WHIFE BRADSHAW AND FENTON ALSO SHOW UP WELL (By Jimmie Roberts.) Oregon won her first conference game last night, swamping the Uni versity of Idaho five by a 31 to 6 score. The Gem State five, coming here as a dark horse, proved a disap pointment to the large crowd who ex pected to see a close game. Oregon won through the stellar work of her three veterans, who were a whole team in themselves. Walker was the star of the evening's entertainment, and scored most of the Oregon points. Bradshaw put. up a great game at guard and held the Idaho forwards under wing, while Carl Fenton put up his heady exhibition. The Idaho team showed bursts of speed at times and had ample chance at the basket, but were either un lucky or unable to hit it. Griffith’s men are mostly all new at the inter collegiate game and fouled frequently by breaking dribbles. Referee Jami son called numerous fouls on the Oregon team, most of them “per sonals.” Oregon jumped into the lead at the start and was never in danger, the score standing 17 to 1 at half time. At the beginnning of the second half the Idaho team braced and held the Varsity scoreless for a few minutes, but the offense unlimbered again to run up fourteen more. Idaho man aged to get two from the field and an other foul bringing the total up to six. The game was fairly free from roughness, most of the fouls called being minor infringements. Jamison was chosen to referee at the last mo ment at the demand of Pink Griffith. The ex-captain made an able official, and got away without a complaint from either team. The game tonight will be called at 7 p. m. The line-up: Oregon Fenton, c.; Brooks, If.; Walker, rf.; lfoylen, lg.; Bradshaw. rp\; Fee, substitute. Idaho —Kinnison, c.; Ankorn, If.; Doulen, rf.; Keane, lg.; Mitchell, rg.; McNett, Foster, Perkins, substitutes.

FI V K CONFERENCE COLLEGES REORGANIZE COLLEGIATE ORATORY TRIANGULAR LEAGUE CEASES Montana Dropped From Activity, Idaho Declines to Enter. Others Participate. The triangular oratorical league now formed of Oregon, Montana and Washington, originated six years ago, though until three years ago Idaho held tin1 place of Montana, will soon be dissolved and in its stead a larger one, formed of conference colleges, will bo formed. Contracts calling for annual oratori cal contests between five of the North west Conference colleges were sent out today by Manager Geary of the University of Oregon. This plan, to make oratory one of the conference activities, and which has been fos tered by Oregon, will substitute the Oregon-Washington-Mon tana inter collegiate oratorical contests. Mon tana is to be dropped from the com petition. It was intended to include all six of the Northwest Conference colleges- Oregon, Washington, O. A. C., W. S. 0., Whitman, and Idaho— but Idaho has refused to participate in this activity. The first of the conference oratori cal contests will be held at the Ore gon Agricultural College early in May. The location will rotate among the colleges. It is believed that the annual prizes of $7f> and $25 for first and second best individual orators, offered by the King County Bar Association of Seat tle, will be similarly offered to the new organization. Manager Geary has the written ra tification of all of the colleges con cerned, other than Idaho, so that the first annual inter-collegiate oratorical contest will occur in Corvallis in May. G. C. Huggins, ex-’14, is now on a farm near Silverton, Oregon. He in tends to enter college at the begin ning of the second semester. One of the features of the banquet was the farewell to H. A. Dalzell, TO, who has been engaged, since his graduation, in boys’ work in this state, but who leaves soon for Chi cago, to take charge of the men’s de partment of one of the largest churches of that city. HAS NEWSPAPERS, WITH EAW SCHOOL SHEET Number one, volume one, of the | University of Oregon Law Depart-1 ment, “Mirnee,” a law student news paper, printed in Portland, appeared today on the campus in Eugene. Though not exactly a competitor to the Emerald, it gives the University of Oregon the distinction of having two newspapers. The new sheet is typewritten, three columns and let terhead sized. As the name indi cates, the printing press, upon which it is produced, is a mimeograph. Strangely enough for a publication from a law college, the publication lacks an editorial page. And, like the short lived flame, tfce Green Cap, it lacks the name of its editors. Rumors have it that Burns Powell, former editor of the Oregon Emerald, i.s star reporter. A reader gains the same impressions from a perusal of the sheet. However, the baby newspaper is the real thing. It contains “society,” per sonals, good, live news, and editorials sandwiched in between the “items.” It reports the loss of a “copy boy,” as follows: " 1 his paper recently employed, out ol pity, a poor hobo for copy boy work. He failed to put in an appear ance this morning at 6 a. m. The po lice can find no trace of him. hie is said to be an itinerant trombone player, and gave the name of Burns Powell.” The new publication carries no ad vertising.
