Wrestling le taking on a cloak of
reality at tho University this year
since sixteen men have now signed
up with instructor Shockley, who has
this work In charge.
This sport was made a branch of
conference athletics this year and as
a result practically all the institu
tions in the conference are preparing
to entertain men for the matches.
The first match will be held at the
Multnomah club In Portland, March
yn anrt 21.
The bouts will be held under the
Amateur Athletic Association rules,
catch-as-catcli-can. There are eight
weights for entries, whlce are: 180
or under, 115 or under, 125 or under,
136 or under. 145 or under, 158 or
under and 175 or under. All over 175
pounds are In the heavy weight class
of which Shockley has several. The
16 men are scattered out through the
weights fairly equal and though very
few of them have had any training
or experience, Shockley thinks he has
a good bunch to work with and ex
pects to get results.
It is hard to tell what show
ing can be made with a squad of men
that have never had any training and
it will be several weeks yet before
uny of the men will begin to show
up above the others, says the In
structor. At present the squad Is be
ing well drilled In bridging and other
elementary exercises which will de
velop the muscles needed especially
for this work. A few of the more
simple holds have been shown and
the men are allowed to do consider
able work on each other, which li
good exercise and also gives them i
chance to become familiar with the
positions, the mat and what Is expect
ed of them. The dally workouts are
completed with u brisk run around
the Indoor track for their wind.
Shockley Ins had considerable ex
perience In this work as he has been
at it for ten years, and wrestling Is
his specialty. Before coming here he
had charge of this branch of athletics
at Christian’s; Brothers College in
Portland and was handling one of the
prominent club’s work In that city
at the same time. He is a specialist
in tumbling md swimming also, hav
ing had experience In both of these
This Is the first year of thlB work

It Is possible that a number of ln
U r-dusH meets w ill lie held to bring

plan, when It comes time to choose
the men for the matches which will

Manager Walker Explains Caus
es. Later Trips Will Aid
in Balancing Books
The graduate-manager’s report of
the recent trip of the glee club which!
was taken during the Christmas hoi
idays shows a deficit of something
between $500 and $600.
“The report has not been fully
completed as yet,” said Walker yes
terday, “and the exact amount of the
deficit it not known at this time.
There are numerous expenses incur
red all along the line of the trip and
as I did not make it myself I have
been unable to get hold of ail these
items of expense. My estimate at
this time is between $500 and $600
“This is an unusually large de
ficit for the club’s annual trip and
is some larger than I expected,
though at no time did I expect the
club to make any money. The dis
tance we traveled was too far and
the jumps too far between to permit
any chance of making expenses. Al
so I was informed before the club left
by several advance agents and road
men that this is a particularly bad
year for road shows. A couple of
other circumstances which made it
difficult for us to secure the best
houses possible was the fact that at
a number of the stops made we were
preceded by the O. A. C. band by
a couple of days. Also we were fol
lowed by a good road company which
was putting on one of the popular
plays of the modern type and for
which I found that a good many peo
ple were waiting.
“Though we went into the hole to
considerable extent on this trip the
balance for the year is not quite as
bad and amounts to at least $200 less.
And by the end of the year if condi
tions are favorable I expect to pull
out pretty even with the board by
making another trip or two.
“The advertising of this trip was
poorly handled and this also helped
to make matters worse. The adver
tising for the next trip will be bet
ter handled."

The fountain did not last long as
the Seniors were some what shocked
at seeing their brethern and honored
president placed in ridicule. They at
once tore the structure to pieces bo
ore the real significance could be ob
served by all.
So much of the spirit of the class
of 1914 was aroused that at eleven
o’clock, the senior men siezed Lom
bard and tied him to the seniir
bench, and painted a blue mustache
on his physiogomy. “If you want to

Professor Alien Says They Are
Unable to Think Inde
Among the varied opinions of the
modern college student comes one
from Prof. E. W. Allen, of the jour
nalism department, which, in the
main, accuses them of bein® unable
to think independenlly.
This statement Professor Allen has
emphasized in a series of short per
sonal talks to his editorial class. The
absence of any decided stand or con
tinuous principle from their work
precipitated the foregoing comment
according to his own statement.
He thinks the same estimate ap
plies to collage students in general,
and not alone to Oregon.
He was unabie to assign any defin
ite cause for this fault, but suggested
as a probability that the young peo
ple of today do not have to exercise
creative and imaginative powers as
they used to. From childhood the;
have completed things shoved at
them. Toy/! which a child once had
to make are now presented finished
and only have to be operated. The
thought of thousands of other mer
presented in education and the stu
dent begins to accept things alon.®
beaten paths, never thinking to see
something undiscovered by the road
side, and forming no convictions 01
which he would stand when in dan
ger of personal Tidicu'e or when
asked to express his opinions.
A kindred fault comes in for hi:
notice—that of ignorance of the best
literature among the students. This
he has often referred to, and hac
proven- it by questioning his classe:
on general literature.
Student Organization There Now Ha
Membership of 2751.
University of Michigan, Jan. 9.
The Michigan Union, which now by
a membership of 2,751, is believed t
be the largest student union in thit
country. It is estimated that 32,00s
persons were entertained at the -100
lunc-heans, dinners, “get-together3,”
“loungers,” etc., last year.
A plan to establish in Ann Arbor a
stove factory and sales offices, for
the purpose of employing student la
bcr, was presented to the board of
regents by L. D. Smith, owner of a
Detroit company. Two local concerns
have submitted plans to the working
stuients’ committee, with the same
purpose in view. It is believed that
these projects will prove higlriy bene
ficial to sslf-supporting students.
The department of physical educa
tion at Princeton has decided to give
a course in boxing to all students
free of charge.
