EMERALD OREGON, SATURDAY, DEC. 6, 1913 No. XXX. CONFERENCE MANAGERS AR RANGE SCHEDULES FOR YEAR MAY NO! PIAY IN ALBAN! Basket-ball, Baseball, Track and Wrestling Discussed and Plans Made for Different Matches of Season. (By Fred Dunbar) The first session of the Conference of the Northwest Intercollegiate managers opened yesterday with the representatives of the six colleges in the conference present. The day was .practically entirely taken up with arranging schedules for baseball, basketball, wrestling, track and football. This is the way Oregon’s football calendar looks for next year, subject, however, to change today: October 10, Whitman College at Eugene; October 17, Washington State College in Portland; October 24, University of Idaho at Moscow; October 31, probably Willamette at Eugene; November 14, University of Washington at Seattle; November 21, Oregon Aggies at Corvallis or Eu gene; November 2 6, Multnomah Club in Portland. For the first time in the history of the Northwest a Conference wrest ling tournament has been scheduled between the colleges. This sport is thought a great deal of in the east and large tryouts are held to pick the teams. This will probably mean the inauguration of a new custom that will arouse considerable inter est in the sport. The tournament will be held late in March at. the Multnomah Club in Portland. The 1914 track meet will be held in Pullman May 23. John R. Bender has the situation in charge. The division made last year for the basketball series was kept this year and at the same time a similar division for baseball was made. In baseball each of the three colleges west of the mountains plays the other four games, while the same is true of the three on the other side of the hills. In basketball six games be tween each college were decided upon. In the final count of these series, the eastern champs come west in baseball, while in the basketball se ries the western champs go east. The attempts of Willamette to get into the conference will have to lay over until the regular conference meeting held next year which gov erns these matters. This meeting of managers has not the power to alio'.c them to come into the league. It is probable, and the signs point that way more all the time, that the big game between O. A. C. and Ore gon will not be staged at Albany next year. It is a well known fact that the student bodies of both in stitutions want the game on the campuses, alternating between the two places each year. It is also known that Portland wants the game and also that Stewart would like to take the game to Portland but it is thought the wishes of tli^ student bodies will be headed and the grime will probably be staged either in Corvallis or Eugene this year and at the other place on the next. Considerable spirit was also shown over Washington’s wishes to stage all games on her field without re gard to other institutions’ pri'ilegec and rights. It seems that Dobie is getting one of those ‘‘leery feelings and thinks his own little shell is the bes place he can crawl to. according to Portland dopesters who are still (Continued on page three) PROFESSOR DON SOWERS IS MUCH TRAVELED MAN Municipal Expert at Service of Oregon Towns, Has Seen the World — j Professor Don C. Sowers, the "ex i pert on cities,” who has just been acquired by the University of Ore gon to assist in solving problems of Oregon towns, is already receiving calls for advice on business and re counting methods, sewer and other engineering difficulties, water ques tions and other live issues through out the state. At present he is mak ing a survey, by request, of admin istrative methods in Eugene. Pro fessor Sowers is available for con sultation without expjyise of any sort, and is at the service of the commun ities of Oregon. Before the year is out, he is likely to be a very busy man. Professor Sowers in 1904 joined the Carnegie Institution at Washing ton, and from 1904 to 1910 was en gaged in magnetic survey work. During this period he traveled in a' variety of countries that it is given to few Americans to see. The Carnegie Institution expeditions of which he was a member worked in the West Indies, Venezuela, Chinese Turke stan, the islands of the Pacific, New Zealand, Hawaii and Alaska. These expeditions noted the declination, the intensity of force and the dip from the horizon down, of the magnetic needle in various localities in these countries. In 1910 Professor Sowers entered Columbia University, taking political science, sociology and public law. He is *now* completing a dissertation on the financial history of New York state. He was two and one-half years in Columbia University. In January, 1913, he became con nected with the training school for public service of the New York bu reau of municipal research, giving i up this work in September to come to the University of Oregon. During his visits to Oregon com munities for consultation purposes, Professor Sowers will be available for illustrated lectures on Turke stan and other countries. He has made the remarkable trip across the Kuen-lun range from Chinese Turke stan into northern India, the expe dition crossing at an elevation of 18, 300 feet. “U” LECTURES ARE POPULAR Portland Classes Have Mounted to 200 Members, So Far. Cities and towns of Oregon are taking most kindly to the University’s offer of free lectures and free classes during the college year. Glendale has arranged for a series of seven lec tures. A circuit has been arranged of Newberg, McMinnville and Dallas, to which faculty members will go at week-ends throughout the winter. Frequent lectures are being given at Salem, Beaverton, Estacada, Condon and Astoria have sent calls. Classes are being conducted at Ashland and Medford. In Portland there are 200 students already this fall in Exten tion classes, with the number grow ing constantly. Roseburg, Milton, Pendleton and several other cities have either had or are about to have lectures. The proposed course for Coos Bay cities has been completed, taking in Bandon, Coquille. Myrtle Point, Marshfield and North Bend. Pro fessor A. F. Reddie will make a cir ■uit of the fiv% towns.during Christ mas Holidays; Dr. Clifton Fremont Hodge will make them during the fourth week in January; Dr. Gilbert will go during the spring vacation. Professor Reddie and Dr. Gilbert will thus lose no time from regular class 53. Most of the faculty members urefer to give these lectures at or near week-eDds whenever possible, so there wjli be no interference with regular lectures at the University. Dr. Charles C. Creegan, president of Fargo College, has resigned. DISCUSS PLANS FOR UTIL IZATION OF APPROPRIA TION FUNDS TO EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE This Body Composed of A. C. Dixon, S. H. Friendly, C. H. Fisher, C. A. Dolph and R. L. Bean, Bids Expected Soon. At the regular meeting of the Board of Regents, of the University held in Dr. Straub's class room this morning, plans for handling the ap propriations made available by the recent referendum election, were discussed. The matter was finally turned over to the Executive Com mittee of the board, who will report at the next meeting to be held Janu ary 20. The Executive Committee is composed of Regents A. C. Dixon, S. H. Friendly and C. H. Fisher, of Eu gene, and C. A. Dolph and R. F. Bean of Portland. The entire appropriation is $17 5, 000. Of this, $100,000 is for a new building to he located on the pres ent athletic field; $10,000 for repairs to Deady Hall; $10,000 for repairs to the Dormitory; $30,000 for an addition to the Library; $15,000 for the Engineering building, and $10, 000 for an extension to the heating plant, changing the pressure return to a gravity system. wnen seen uiis morning in regaru to the new improvements, President Campbell said, “It is not known de finitely how the new campus will be arranged but probably the athletic field will be moved to the ground owned by the University directly op posite the cemetery, and the new building placed at the east end of the present field. A landscape architect may be secured to map out the' work and to beautify the grounds.” It is expected that as soon as the Executive Committee submits its re port. bids for the various improve ments will be asked for and the work begun as soon as possible in order that everything may be in shape for the opening of college next fall. U. IS REACHING THOUSANDS In Single Subject of Mathematics 150 Take Correspondence Work. The State University will this year reach easily twice as many Oregon people as it reached last. In the cor respondence and extra-mural de partments there are about 500 regis tered this fall. The teachers’ insti tutes are being covered thoroughly through the Extension lectures. In mathematics alone, 150 are enrolled in the correspondence courses, and the Extension Department, reports finding mathematics by mail gets real results.

SIX CHOSEN IN THIRD DEBATE TRYOUT TODAY •*** Prof. Prescott Not Enthusiastic. King Only Member From Last Year In the third debate tryout this morning in the Biology Lecture room in Deady Hall. Fred Hardesty, Lloyd Dawson. Bert Lombard, Dal King, Victor Morris and L. B. Hoisington were the successful contestants. A fair amount of interest was manifest ed by all of the debaters and the victors won by only a small margin. Each man was given ten minutes for his opening speech and four min utes for his rebuttal. Each one showed by his argument that he was fairly prepared on the subject and the presentation of his material was the deciding point. Professor Prescott said that he had no statement to make concerning the debaters. He did not seem very en thusiastic about the future debates, although the dates for them have not been definitely settled upon. The debaters will practice next Saturday morning in the Biology Lecture room taking opposite sides to those they had last Saturday. Dal King is the only old member of the number chosen; he was a member of the team that defeated Stanford last year. Fred Hardesty, Cloyd Dawson and Bert Lombard have figured prominently in former tryouts, though, and promise to be come title capturers themselves. HOW TO ATTRACT PARENTS Topics for Parent-Teaclier Meetings - Available From U. of O. A booklet for free distribution, which the University would like to see in the hands of every teacher in the state, has just been published by the Extension Department, and is entitled “Suggested Topics for Par ent-Teacher Meetings.” It is part of the University’s program for bringing about wide-spread instruction in the schools. "Parent-Teacher meetings can be made the livest place in the com munity at this time,” says the book let, "because of so much available material for study.” "It does not take much argument to convince any observing parent or teacher,” says the booklet again, "that there is much waste in ordinary school processes—not waste of money merely, but that which is far more vital, the waste of the child’s inter ests, waste as to his natural' energy, as to his time.” The University’s coarse In the conservation of the school child is conducted through these parent teacher meetings, through corres pondence and through special lec tures where desired, all without ex pense of any kind to the recipients of instruction. Health is placed above everything. The saving and directing of the child’s mental forces comes next. Dr. R. B. Dlllehunt, assistant dean of the University of Oregon Medical school, of Portland, attended the meeting of the University Board of Regents today.
