COLLOQUIUM DISCUSSES
STUDY REQUIREMENTS
Most Students This Year Are
Taking Right Proportion
of Subjects
The Colloquium held a meeting
Tuesday evening in Villard hall dur
ing which the entrance requirements
of professional schools and the
courses of study in the University
were discussed.
The Colloquium is an organization I
consisting of all faculty members.
“The purpose of it,” says Dr. Boyn
ton, ‘ is to have informal meetings
about once a month and discuss in a
heart to heart fashion anything that
a faculty member may have worry
ing him. It is during these meetings
that we thresh out all questions of
possible trouble so that when they
come up for settlement we are bet
ter able to handle them and can do
so with promptness. We decided
nothing definitely last Tuesday but
found that the students this year are
taking about the right amount of re
quired courses. We also discussed
whether or not professional schools
in Portland should he allowed to ad
ult students not having had two
'ears of college work.”
PORTLAND BUSINESS HEN
TRY PUBLIC SPEAKING
35 Are Enrolled in Prof. Red
die’s Ciass. No Tuition
Is Charged
The first extension class in Public
Speaking was organized in Portland
Saturday by 35 business and profes
ional men under the direction of
Professor A. F. Reddie, head of the
department in Public Speaking.
This is practically the only public
peaking class existing in Portland
in which anyone may receive in
struction without paying tuition.
arofessor Reddie states that a class
will be held once every two weeks in
one of the Public Libraries.
“I expect to give the regular pub
lic speaking course,” says Professor
Reddie, “which consists mostly of
preparing and delivering a speech.
The members seem to be very en
thusiastic and I expect to see great
results, and an increase in the num
ber of those enrolled. More classes
of similar nature may be organized
in other Oregon cities, but as yet no
definite plans have been made. Some
of my pupils are lawyers, salesmen,
mechanics and others are in busi
ness.”
WOMEN’S DEBATE TRYOUT
POSTPONED TO MARCH 20
Two Teams Will Be Selected if
s Dual Debate Is Agreed
Upon.
“The women’s debate tryout has
ben postponed until 4 o’clock Friday
afternoon, March 29. We are await
ing a reply from the University of
Washington to the offer made by us
that we will pay the expenses of a
Washington’s women’s Rebating
team if they will send one here at
the same time we Send a team to
Seattle,” sail Professor ^Prescott, in
speaking of the probability of a
women’s dual debate with Washing
ton.
“Our own team is to .uphold the
affirmative of the question, ‘Re
1 solved, That the executive depart
■ msnt should be made responsible for
the national budget,’ at Seattle, and
should a Washington team be sent
to Oregofi they will take the af
firmative here. ®If we have two
teams I do not know whether there
will be two or three girls on each
team; it rests entirely with Wash
ington.”
Six names have now been handed
in: Mrs. Stetson, Selma Baumann,
Aldous Oberholtzer, Cecile Sawyer,
Beatrice Littlefield, Amy Carson.

The class hour program given by
the 'Sophomore Class yesterday
morning in Villard HaU_&ttracted an
audience which packed the main
floor and balcony, and constituted
the largest assembly of the year.
The program, advertised for three
or four days by mysterious posters
on the campus bulletin boards, went
off without a hitch amid frequent in
sistent applause and evidences of ap
preciation.
The program lasted for an hour
and a half, and was divided into two
parts, formal and informal. The in
formal part consisted of a minstrel
show.
Minstrel Show Pleases.
Hyde’s eight-piece minstrel band
heralded the entertainment by pa
rading the campus for a few mo
ments before the program began.
Lamar Tooze, president of the
class, had charge of the exercises,
anl made a few introductory re
marks explaining the purposes of
class hours. He was followed by
Cleveland Simpkins, who was also
last year’s class hour orator. Simp
kins, in an eight-minute address,
made an appeal to the Freshmen to
cultivate sportsman-like qualities,
and incidentally dwelt on the honors
of the Sophomores. He was frequent
ly interrupted by applause from the
audience.
“Sleep, Little Baby Mine,” by a
double quartet of Sophomore girls
and a vocal solo by Harold Humbert
concluded the first part of the pro
gram.
Jokes Spicy.
The minstrels were then ushered
in and for an hour entertained the
audience with spicy jokes and catchy
songs. Merlin Batley and Mandell
Weiss, as endmen, handled their parts
in a way that brought forth almost
continuous laughter from the au
dience.
The. program was closed with a
medley sung by the entire chorus.
The members of the Sophomore
Class hour committee were: Maurice
Hyde, chairman; Jeanettei Wheatley,
Henry Trowbridge, Beatrice Locke,
DeEtta Ingham, Frank Lewis, Bertha

The Varsity wrestlers had their
last workout Thursday afternoon,
preparatory to the conference wrest

expected after only two months’
training,’’ said Shockley yesterday.
The team will leave for Portland
Friday at 7:35 in the morning by
way of the Oregon Electric. Friday
afternoon they will be given a light
workout at the Multnomah Club, so
that the men might get acquainted
with the surroundings. They will
stay at the Oregon Hotel while in
Portland.
Five Men Will Compose Team.
Only five men will compose the
team. Shaffner of the 125-pound
weight, was compelled to forfeit that
class to Martin because of his inabil

of that weight. The weights of the
•est of the men are within the two
pound limit, give or take.
The preliminaries will be held Fri
day night and the finals Saturday
night. Whether any of the men get

The men will take up their regu
ar class work as soon as the meet is
over, or they may go out for any of
the various sports.
“I can only say that we hope to
make a showing, and if we do I cer
tainly will be satisfied for this year,”
declared Shockley, before he left..
Fuji Maki, the 115-pounder, has
been nursing a sore shoulder for the
last day or two but is confident that
it will be all right for the meet.
Jackson of the 108 weight, Martin of
the 125. Carl of the 145 and King
of the 158-pound weight are in as j
good condition as could be expected.
