OREGON VOL. XV. EUGENE, ORE., TUESDAY, MARCH 3, 1914. NO. LVI. SOCCER NEW AT UNIVERSITY SATURDAY’S GAME ON KIN CAID TO BE PLAYED WITH COLUMBIA “U.” PROW REPORTED STRONG Oregon First Among Confer ence Colleges to Play Outside Games in New Sport. Stu dent Tickets Do Not Admit. Next Saturday will see a new sport ushered into the University of Oregon’s student activities, when the first game of soccer with an outside team is scheduled. The game will start promptly at 2 o’clock and will be played on Kincaid field with Col umbia University. At the same time the Annual Inter-class Cross country race will be held. The finish is ex pected to come between the two halves of the soccer game. Columbia has one of the best soc cer sides in the state, its team hav ing held continuously the champion ship of the inter-scholastic league of Portland, except for one year when Jefferson High tied it in a hard game. Prof. Colin V. Dyment re fereed this game and speaks highly of the strength and speed of the Col umbia players. Oroginal Date March 24. “This game for Saturday was scheduled contrary to the original plan,” said Captain Spellman in speaking of the coming contest. “We had intended meeting Columbia in l-orxiand on March 14 and then hav ing a return game hers on March 21. But Manager aWlker received a long distance from Prof. Bach, manager of athletics at Cplumbia, Monday, saying that Columbia desired to close the season as soon as possible and that it would like to come here next Saturday and play in Portland on March 14. This plan was agreed to by Walker and so the games will be held on those dates.” “Oregon is first among the North west conference colleges to play an outside game of soccer and I think it is only a matter of time until the game will be included in the regular conference schedules,” said Colin V. Dyment. “There was some discus sion of it as a conference sport be fore the last meeting of the man agers and I think that before many years they will be including it on their programs. The blame is estab lished at Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Pennsylvania, Stanford, Berkeley and many other universities but it takes time to develop players so they will be able to put up an exhibition showing the fine points of the game. Sport Is Still New. “Its position at Oregon is some what similar to that of baseball in Japan or Australia, for example. To get a sufficient number of men well enough versed in the sport so they can put on an interesting game can not be done in a season. “The men on the squad, of whom there are 18 that have been turning out regularly, will be picked Thurs day and any who might otherwise run in the cross-country will be held out for this game. “The goal posts will be erected on Kincaid Field this week and the field prepared for the game. The intercol legiate goal posts on Kincaid field are 100 yards apart, but soccer goals are better 110. In the professional games they are often 120 and even 130.” Student-body tickets will not be accepted for this game as it is not a conference meet. A'charge of 25 cents will be made to cover expenses. This also includes the cross-country race. A handsome gold medal is to be the trophy of the man to come in first. It is now hanging in one of the large exhibit cases in the gym. SENIOR LAWS REFUSE TO WEAK CAPS AND GOWNS Ordinary Garments Preferred by Uraduates, Regardless of Faculty. Portland, Ore., March 2.—Seniors of the University of Oregon Law School have decided that monk-like frocks and hideous mortarboards are useless, illogical and consequently il legal as commencement adjuncts, and have vetoed the proposed wearing of caps and gowns during the graduat ing exercises, or at any other time. The customary caps and gowns that are worn by graduating classes in most of the universities and colleges throughout the country have been worn by the Oregon Seniors up to this year. Efforts were made by several mem bers of the law faculty to persuade the lawyers to wear the graduation regalia this year, but without avail. Clad in ordinary garments, character ized by the students themselves as “neat, but not gaudy,” the graduat ing class will get their diplomas without any undue display or pomp. OREGON TO MEET N. A. A. C. IN TRACK ON APRIL 25TH Meet to Be Held on Multnomah •Field One Week After Columbia Date April 25 has been chosen as the date for a dual track meet to be held between the University of Oregon and Multnomah Club teams by Man ager Dean Walker and Martin Haw kins, manager of outdoor athletics and track for the club. This date conies on the Univer sity campus one week after the in door meet with Columbia, which is held annually in Portland. The date this year has been selected for April 18. The reverse of fotball, Oregon has no trouble in defeating the Portland ers when it comes to track, and the meets are staged more for the pur pose of giving Oregon’s team prac tice than for any other reason. Multnomah usually has a number of stars who are well known in the Northwest and the east and though the lack of sufficient training is evi dent, the meet is always an interest ing one. Hawkins is a graduate of Oregon and was a sure point taker in the hurdles and broad jump. He was one of the team taken by Bill Hayward to the last Olympic games held in Stockholm. 19 LECTURES THIS WEEK Members of Faculty Journey to 13 Oregon Towns.

MORS PLAN NOVELDANCE MASQUE ON FRIDAY NIGHT TO BE STRICTLY INFORMAL FIVE PRIZES ARE OFFERED Committee Makes Announce ment That No Dancer Will Be Admitted Unless Masked and Wearing a Costume. Five prizes, everybody masked and costumed, five feature dances and strict informality, will make the Ju nior masque, scheduled for Friday, March 6, one of the big social events of the year, acording to Morris Big bee, general chairman of the com mittee. The committee of the Junior masque has decided that no person without a mask and a costume will be admitted to the dance. This will make a larger number eligible for 1 the five prizes to be given: one for the best costumed man, one for the best costumed woman, one for the most comically costumed man, one for the most comically costumed woman, and one to the best dancer in the prize waltz. Five Feature Dances. The first five dances of the even ing before the unmasking will be feature dances. The price of admission will be 50 cents a couple and “stags” will be assessed two bits a head. “This is the first Junior masque, but it is our hope that it will become an annual custom of the Junior Class and one of the principal events of the year,” said Morris Bigbee, chairman of the committee. “We are doing our best to make this dance a thor oughly enjoyable affair because of its uniqueness and informality.” Committee Is Working. The several committees are as fol lows: General chairman, Morris Bigbee; ! rules, Bert Jerard; music, Verne Ap 1 person and Edna Harvey; prizes and features, Lila Sengstake, Tom Boy len, Valene Eastham, Boyce Fenton; judges and patronesses, Beatrice Lil ly and Mildred Riddle. The other members of the committee are Beu lah Stebno and Genevieve Cooper. DRAMA LEAGUE MAY TAKE TOUR DURING VACATION Engagements Will Be Booked in Valley Towns for “Pro fessor’s Love Story” (By Edison Marshall.) The Dramatic Interpretation class will play "The Professor’s Love Story,’’ by Barrie, in nine Oregon towns during Spring vacation, ac cording to the present plans of the Associated League for the Study of the Drama. The trip will take ten days. The towns that will probably be included are Salem, Albany, Rose burg, Grants Pass, Gold Hill, Med ford and Ashland. Arrangements have already been made in Salem, Grants Pass, Medford, Gold Hill and Ashland. The manager of the league, Sam Michael, is now at work trying to book engagements at other towns. Rehearsals for the play will com mence at once. "The Professor’s Love Story” is a breezy comedy, with a long string of successes in the east. It is laid in Scotland; Scottish songs, such as "The Campbells,” “Annie Laurie,” etc., Scottish humor and Scottish scenes make the play delightful from beginning to end. This will be the longest and most expensive trip ever undertaken by a University production. IDAHO TRIP IS PLANNED BASEBALL TEAM MAY PLAY U. OF I, W. S. C. AND G0NZA6A WOULD BE PRACTICE GAMES Walker Now Making Arrange ments for Tour. Coaches and Players Are in Favor of More Contests. A trip into the eastern division of the conference is the most recent development at baseball headquar ters. Manager Walker is attempting to get all the practice games possible this year to put the team in the best fighting trim and he is now making arrangements for games with Idaho, Gonzaga College and W. S. C. Coach Bezdek is understood to be in favor of the trip and is anxious that his men shall get all the prac tice possible. Captain Fenton is also in favor of such a trip but would rather see the team go south as bet ter weather conditions and arrange ments on the whole can be made, if only into southern Oregon. Northern Trip Wanted. The northern trip would include two games each with Idaho, Gon zaga College at Spokane, and W. S. C., after the games with Washing ton, and, according to Manager Dean Walker, seems likely to materialize. “I feel almost certain that this trip will be arranged,” he said yesterday. “This tour will begin about April 10.” The trip into the south to meet California and Stanford does not ap pear possible to the graduate mana ger. The season in the south begins so much earlier than does our own, that they are well along in their schedule before we begin to play. The dates for spring vacation, which appeared most favorable for our team, are already taken by the south ern schools. Other Contests Probable. The Colored Giants, a negro team of nation-wide prominence, is billed to make a tour through, this part of the country some time in the spring, and the Colts, McCredle’s Northwest League tossers, will be returning from their training camp by the time our boys are rounding into form. With neither of these teams have games been settled upon, though the professional aggregation affords good opportunities for needed prac tice before the initial conference games. DR.

Tif fany Thinks Next Year’s En tering Class Will Be 375. Forty-two Freshmen enrolled this semester, the largest mid-year regis tration in the history of the Univer sity. The total nerollment of this semester was 59, of which 16 have been in the University before. Of the total number, 21 are from Port land, and 13 from Eugene. Registrar Tiffany regards this as a favorable indication for next year. He thinks that the Freshmen next fall will number 375. As an attraction for high school students, several thousand bulletins will be sent to the Juniors and Se niors of the high schools throughout the state. Choice of profession is treated at length in these bulletins; also the various problems that pre sent themselves to those anticipating going to college. The bulletin will contain 48 page3, beautifully illus trated. WALKER EXPECTS A FULL HOUSE AT COTTAGE GROVE “Head of the Valley” City Shows a Lively Interest On Wednesday, twenty-four song birds, representing the Girls’ Glee club, will take a southward flight to Cottage Grove, where they will ap pear in concert under the auspices of the local High school. For many weeks this organization has been ardently at work under the direction of Prof. Lyman, and their consistent labor will be rewarded by this trip. Prof. Lyman, in speaking of the pro gress of the club, said: ‘The untir ing efforts of the girls in taking an active interest in the work has been the means of producing a club which can compete with any organization of similar nature. On Marcli 30 we will give a concert here and show the people here what we can do.” Manager Walker reports a lively interest is being manifested by the people of Cottage Grove over the ap pearance of the club there. "A full house will be no surprise,” remarked Walker. The club will be chaperoned dur ing the trip. They will return on the same evening. PICTURES TO REMAIN IN EUGENE UNTIL THURSDAY Few Students Have Visited Art Exhibition States Allen Eaton “The exhibition of oil paintings, by American artists is well attended, even better than we expected,” said Allen Eaton, who is in charge of the affair, Monday .afternoon. “Up to that time 4101 people had registered as visitors to the exhibit on display in the Commercial club. “The University students have dis appointed me,” added Mr. Eaton. “I expected more of them to come to see the paintings. The exact per centage of students I do not know yet, but it is extremely low. This exhibit contains sixteen oil paintings by artists whom the critics say are among the very best in America. The collection was made by the American Federation of Arts in New York and brought to this coast, where it has been shown at Los Angeles, San Francisco, Port land and Eugene. It will remain in Eugene until Thursday, when it will be sent to Seattle. The valuation of this collection of paintings is $25, 700. The exhibit is open every after noon from 12:30 to 5 o'clock. Through the financial support of the citizens of Eugene it Is free to all. AMENDMENT UP TOMORROW STUDENTS WILL VOTE ON STUDENT COUNCIL AND SERVICE STARS MANAGERIAL BODY PLANNED Passing of Measure First Step Toward Self-Govetrlninent; More Efficient System Ex pected if Measure Carries. The regular assembly hour Wed nesday morning will be taken up with the student body election on the two amendments that were pro posed at the last student body meet ing. One of the amendments makes provision for a student council and the other concerns the awarding of service stars to be placed on the blankets going to Senior athletes. The amendment which deals with the student council is the first defin ite step that has been taken as a re sult of the recent agitation proposing a system of self-government. While not exactly a part of a self-govern ment plan, it is a step that will eventually lead up to such a plan if the student body expresses itself as favorable to this. Count'll to Take Powers. The executive committee will hand over the -more important of its pow ers to the student council in case the amendment is passed at tomorrow’s election, although it still retains a sufficient number to make it an im portant committee. It was found this year that this committee was so heavily burdened with work that it was impossible to take care of it In an effiicent and capable manner. This amendment will put into one body the important officers and heads of branches of the student body, including the editor of the Em erald, president of the student-body, and the president of the Women’s League besides five members of the Senior class and three from the Ju nior class, two from the Senior class and one from the Junior class being women. * Will Act as Mediator. It is thought that in the course of time this council will take over the duties of the student affairs com mitee which will be a step farther towards self-government. At the same time this council will act as a mediator between the students and the faculty, and through it any mat ters concerning the many problems of student life may be brought to the attention of the faculty in a def inite and direct manner and some definite solution can be obtained. It is though that this will cause less friction between the students and the faculty and will result in a gen eral all-round more efficient and ex pedient system of government which has been the need of the student body for several years. The other amendment provides for service stars on the blankets pre sented to seniors who have their choice between a sweater and a blan ket. The stars are varied colored, blue for football, white for track, yellow for baseball and red for bas ketball. A captaincy in any one sport will be represented by a black star in place of the regular color for that year. In case the amendments are adopt ed, it is the plan of President Mots chenbacher to have the council in working order in less than two weeks. Nominations for the elective positions on the council will be open ed one week from tomorrow and on Friday of that week the election will be held. The following Saturday a meeting of the council will be held and active work started. Following the election on the amendments, the classes will hold | their regular semi-monthly meetings In their respective meeting places.
