Eight members for the newly cre
ated offices on the student council
were chosen at the special election
held yesterday, and will take up
their duties at once. The keenest
competition was found for the Jun
ior offices on the council.
The votes as cast were: Senior
men, Wallace Caufield 257; Alfred
Davies 219; Delbert Stanard 218;
Alfred Collier 177. Senior women,
“Hazel Rader 220; Efaith Still 218;
Rose Basler 171. Junior men, Thom

James Donald 134; Ben Dorris 105.
Junior women, Beulah Stebno 158;

several uiose naces.
Several of the candidates ran very
close races and two of them lost toy
the narrow margins of one and four
points. Fred Hardesty of th“ Junior
class won over James Donald by one
point. Beulah Stetono of the junior
women, was elected by a margin of
four points over her only other op
ponent, Velma Sexton. The other
successfu calndidates were easily the
winners.
The interest displayed in the nom
inations continued in the election
with the result that less than half of
the registered students voted.
The statistics compiled show that
the classes, beginning with the Sen
iors took the interest according to
rank, the seniors showing the most
and so on down. The freshmen were
the worst offenders, and especially
those who entered this last semes
ter.
Vote Is Light.
Of the seniors to out oi m list
ed cast their ballots, the juniors, 54
out of 101, sophomores 66 out of
162, freshmen 107 out of 314, spe
cials 2 out of 16. This gives the sen
iors a percentage of approximately
one-half, the juniors one-half, the
sophomores less than one-half, the
freshmen a little over one-third and
the specials one-eighth. These fig
ures are all aproximate. The final
percentage shows that between one
half and one-third of the number of
students in college voted. Of the 48
freshmen who registered in the sec
ond semester 16 cast their ballots.
There are also 12 students in the
University who have not paid their
student body tax.

CURRICULA BOARD NOW
AFTER RURAL SOCIOLOGY
Discuss Transference of Such
Courses to Oregon Ag
ricultural College
Whether or not the teaching of
rural sociology is to remain at the
University of Oregon or is to he
transferred to the Oregon Agricul
tural College, is a question which
has been discussed by the Board of
Higher Curricula in Portland this
week.
The Board met Friday and most
of the time was taken up in inter
preting the details of the recent rul
ings made which will apportion the
work between the University and O.
A. C.
A contention is made by some that
the instruction in rural sociology
should be taught in the “Aggie” col
lege rather than the University.
President P. L. Campbell is now
in Portland and the results of the
matter being brought up will not be
known until he returns, which will
probably be tomorrow.
Another meeting of the Board is
to be held April 11 to take up the
matter of the course in architecture
and graduate work and at this meet
ing the Board expects to put every
thing in shape so that both the Uni
versity and O. A. C. may go ahead
with the preparation of their cata
logues for the year 1914-15.

YEAR BOOK IS
NEARLY READY
FIRST FIVE BOOKS NOW IN
SHAPE FOR PRINTER
SAYS HENDRICKS
SENIOR “HONORS" CURTAILED
Staff of College Artists Works
on Illustrations. Jokes and
Features Are Scarce at Pres
ent, Says Editor.
"The first five books of the Ore
gana are ready to go to press," said
Lee Hendricks, editor of the 1915
Oregana, today. “We are waiting for
the special paper ordered which has
not arrived. But it will probably
come this week and the five books,
I, The University; II, Faculty and
Administration; III, Classes; IV,
Law School; V, Medical School, will
immediately go to press.”
In the first department of the Ore
gana, “The University,” there will be
the most complete history of the Uni
versity yet written, according to Mr.
Hendricks’ statements. The list of
senior “honors” has been shortened
this year to include only positions
and memberships for which there is
competition. The societies and or
ganizations which anyone can join by
paying the neecssary dues are not
“honors,” and neither are appoint
ments to minor class committees. If
a senior has been an officer in such
a society, that will be an “honor.”
Organizations as the Y. M. C. A. and
Y. W. C. A. Laureans and Eutaxian
Societies, Engineering Club come
under this head but Varsity teams
and squads, student body and class
offices and clubs like the Dramatic
and German clubs, in which elimina
tion is used as a basis of choosing
members are included as "honors.”
Artists at Work.
“The idea is to make the senior sec
tion less of a joke than it has been,
and to give credit to those who have
really done something during their
college courses,” said Mr. Hen
dricks.
Artists are at work on their sec
tions of the Oregana. Among these
are Thornton Howard, Joe Tominaga,
Elizabeth DuVaney, Milton Stoddard,
Edmond Simons, Arthur Runquist
and Charles W. McMillan.
Material Wanted.
Mr. Hendricks says there has been
no college Raffles at work on the
“Feature Box” in the library and
there is plenty of room in it for
more “feature” drawings.
“I hope everyone who has prom
ised to do anything on the book will
hand in their material as soon as it
is ready, instead of waiting for me to
call on them, as I am pretty busy
these days,” concluded Mr. Hen
dricks. “I have given up my Ore
gonian work to Terence Malarkey
and am putting in all my time on the
Oregana.”
FRATERNITY MEN PLAN
TO ORGANIZE COUNCIL
Meeting1 Is Tomorrow. Action
Thought Best for Welfare
of School
As an outcome of the recent
smoker held by the fraternities in
the University of Oregon for the pur
pose of discussing maters of general
welfare to the student-body, a meet
ing of representatives will be held
tomorrow morning to take steps to
wards forming a fraternity council.
Each fraternity has elected one
senior and one junior as representa
tives and these men will meet with
the intention of working on a propo
sition for a fraternity union. It is
believed that the University in gen
eral will derive benefits from such a
union. The question has been agi
tated for a number of years.

The seven University of Oregon
delegates present, including Hawley
Bean, Cecile Sawyer, Georgia Cross,
Earl Blackaby, Allen O’Connell, Wil
lard 'Shaver and iPrentiss Brown, cast
a straw vote while waiting for the
judge’s decision and the result gave
Oregon, O. A. C. and McMinnville
College the three first places, with
O. A. 'C. and Oregon the favorites for
first place.
Oregon Fourth.
Oregon’s speaker was second in
thought and composition, but tailed
to get as good a mark on delivery in
the estimation of the judges in com
petition with the sectarian col
leges who found favor with orations
upon the liquor question, interspers
ed with varied gestures.
Following the oratorical contest
the delegates and speakers from the
eight contesting colleges, together
with the judges and many Albany
people, gathered at the Hotel St.
Francis, where a banquet was served.
An elaborate five-course dinner was
served and a long and varied assort
ment of toasts were responded to by
the judges and heads of the different
college delegations. Hawley Bean
for Oregon responded to the toast,
“Our Orators.” The banquet broke
up at a late hour.
Delegates Entertained.
The delegates were entertained at
private homes for the most part.
About two hundred registered with
the secretary yesterday afternoon.
The executive committee of the as
sociation met in the afternoon and
transacted necessary business.

STUDENT OFFICERS AT
OHIO ARE INELIGIBLE
Editor of Year Book and Many
Others Forced to
Resign
Ohio State University, March 12.—
Chaos broke loose in student activi
ties Monday morning with the deliv
ery of letters from the Registrar’s
office declaring 101 out of 515 stu
dent officials ineligible. Every of
fice of the Freshman class except
that of the sergeant-at-arms was
madte- vacant by the application of
the scholarship eligibity rule. Three
members of the Student Council, the
treasurer of the Senior Class, Makio
editor, and one associate editor are
among those deprived of their of
fices.
Immediate action bein" deemed
necessary by the council in the case
of Roy McCarty, editor of the Makio,
Lawrence Yerges, business manager
of the yearbook, was appointed ed
itor, and was authorized to choose
as many assistants and associates as
will be necessary to publish an an
nual, This action was recommended
to the council in a communication
from Dean J. Adams, acting presi
dent of the University.
The action of the council in com
bining the offices of editor and busi
ness manager is not without prece
dent. In 1905, Osmer C. Ingalls,
business manager, had complete con
trol of the book. Robert Marshall,
president of the Student Council,
stated Monday evening the the Makio
had progressed too far to make ad
visable the election of another ed
itor.
IMPROVEMENTS MADE
ON BASEBALL GROUNDS
O - o
Diamond Fenced off and Ar
rangements for Real Play
ing Are Made
Coach Bezdek’s hopefuls spent the
morning tearing up a bed of soft dirt
on Kincaid field in efforts to master
the slides; while a delegation of stu
dent workers with wheelbarrows,
lime, rakes and shovels put the dia
mond into condition. The home plate
is being reset, and a mound raised
at the pitcher’s box. And now with
the wires running down the side
lines, the west side of the Campus
begins to take on the appearance of a
ball field.
Two teams picked from the squad
will be matched against each other
this afternoon in a practice game.
The line-ups have not been decided
upon.
With the breakup of the Tri-State
League and the disbandment of the
Baker team, the chances for the
Varsity to train with a professional
team becomes very small. Manager
Dean Walker had two or three other
lines out for professional teams with
which a series of practice games
might be arranged, but seems meet
ing with small success. The Port
land Colts, which might have trained
in Eugene for a week, will, it seems
probable, play a series with the Hel
ena, Montana, team of the Western
League during the time it would have
been here.
Y. M. TO STUDY WITH Y. W

Charles Koyl Will Lead.
Beginning next Tuesday evening at
7 o’clock the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W.
C. A. will unite in a group study, by

commercial, industrial and religious
conditions of Asia. The meetings
will be held weekly from 7 to 7:45
in the Y. M. C. A. office in Deady
Hall, with Charles Koyl leader. As

retary of the Association in the

STANFORD IS
OUT-TALKED
’ VARSITY DEBATERS DEFEAT
SOUTHERN TEAM BY
3-0 VOTE
HARDESTY, MOORE WIN FAME
Oregon’s Other Team Which
Met Washington Last Night
in Seattle Lost to Opponents
by Same Vote of 3-0.
By a unanimous vote the Univer
sity of Oregon won from Stanford In
the third Tri-angular State Debate
held in Villard Hall Friday night.
The Varsity was represented by Fred
Hardesty and Victor Morris, both
juniors. Stanford was represented
by Corson Ide and Clinton Weston.
On the same night Washington
won from Oregon at Seattle and
Stanford won from Washington at
Palo Alto, thus each University win
ning in its city. Dal King and Bert
Lombard were Oregon’s debaters at
Seattle.
Affirmative Wins.
Oregon upheld the affirmative
here and the negative at Seattle.
Stanford upholding the affirmative
won at Seattle and lost here. Wash
ington on the affirmative won from
Oregon at Seattle and lost at Stan
ford. The teams winning upheld the
affirmative of the question in every
case.
The question as stated was, Re
solved, That the Executive Depart
ment should be made responsible for
our National Budget. The judges
were E. J. Flnneran, Eugene; Chas.
E. McCullock and E. Callahan, both
from Portland. Allen Eaton of Eu
gene was the presiding officer.
Fred Hardesty spoke first for Ore
gon and gave a general history of the
question. He showed In clear cut
statements the necessity of having
the executive transact business as he
does and in order to do this satis
factorily he must have control of the
budget. He said In a convincing
manner that the executive Is best fit
ted in that he has plenty of time and
is experienced.
Ide Forcible Speaker.
uorson lae or tne negative rerut
ed the arguments of the affirmative
in saying that the president does not
truly represent the people, instead it
is the legislative body. In forcible
statements he explained how in giv
ing the president complete control of
the budget that it would tear down
our democracy.
In a pleasing tone and carriage, yet
full of force and power, Victor Mor
ris continued the arguments of the
affirmative. By producing a copy of
Adams’ book in finance he showed
the judges conclusively where the
j negative was mistaken in their argu
ments. He pointed out the def'cien
cies of the present system and ex
plained that if for 125 years the
present system was ineffilcent and
since the new system will overcome
these evils it only stands to reason
that the Executive Department
should be made responsible for our
national budget. It will prevent log
rolling and enable closer co-opera
tion between the executive and legis
lative bodies.
Clinton Weston closed the debate
and concluded the arguments for the
negative. He said that the people
would be too much interested in the
national government if thfsc system
was adopted and thal they would
neglect their own local government.
The speakers were allowed twenty
minutes for their first speech and
five minutes rebuttal.
