Plans AH Set; One Conference Car
ried On at One Time
In Villard
The faculty has decided that the stu
dents shall be expected to put in the
time Friday in attendance at the
Commonwealth session, which they
would otherwise have given to their
regular class work.
Such is a statement made by Pro
fessor F. G. Young, Chairman of the
Conference Committee. Practically
the same information was conveyed
to the students in an announcement
made by President P. L. Campbell
just preceding the Freshman class
hour yesterday morning.
Of especial interest to students will
be the student conference at 3:00 P.
M. Friday. Professor Young stated
that the Commonwealth Committee
would be glad to have several stu
dents give talks to indicate their atti
tude toward a co-operative survey
with the Forest Service of the Na
tional reservations of Oregon, with a
view to turning the reservations into
national recreation grounds.
It is probable that several student
speakers, chiefly those men interest
ed in forestry, will be scheduled to
talk at the 3:00 o’clock meeting. At
a Student Council held at 7:15 last
night in Professor F. C. Ayer’s class
room in the Library, Bert Lombard
was appointed chairman of a com
mittee for securing speakers, and
Leslie Tooze was put in charge of
the publicity work. Owing to the
absence of President Tom Boylen
from town, the Vice President, Bert
Lombard, will preside at the Stu
dent Conference.
It is feared that Governor Withy
combe will be unable to be present
at the sessions, because of a previ
ous engagement. However, an ef
fort is being made by Hon. H. B.
Miller to induce the Governor to
postpone the former engagement.
The first speaker to arrive was A.
L. Barbur, City Auditor of Portland,
who came in yesterday morning. The
other speakers for Thursday arrived
last night, and it is expected that
those of tomorrow’s and Saturday’s
sessions will be here tonight.
“Besides the speakers who are
scheduled, there will probably be
about fifty other out of town people
in attendance,” says Professor Young.
He added that were it not for the hard
times, a considerably larger number
should have been expected.
No concerted effort at entertain
ment has been made, although sev
eral lunchons at hotels and fraternity
houses are planned. A few of the
members of the Eugene Commercial
Club will take luncheon with the Sat
urday speakers, according to Profes
sor Young. The program arrange
ments will make impossible the lun
cheon planned by Alpha Kappa Psi
for the Commerce speakers.
In the folder programs of the Con
ference, the name of Mr. L. L. Good
rich, who will read a paper of Rob
ert E. Smith on “The Cause and Cure
of High Taxes,” was omitted. The
folders, which may be obtained at the
Registrar’s office, give the time of
each discussion.
The plan which was followed last
year of having more than one ses
sion in progress in different buildings
at the same time, is not being used
this year, because cf the lack of hous.
ing facilities. However, Professor
Young stated that the plan can very
easily be followed in future years,
when the new Administration Build

Emerald Staff to Eat and Try to be
Merry Without Drinking at
Annual Banquet
“We are going to fatten up some
of these lean and hungry scribes, if it
takes all the money in the exchequer,”
said Manager “Tony” Jaureguy,
speaking today of the annual Oregon
Emerald banquet, which will be held
at six o’clock next Thursday evening,
June 3rd.
The local Pulitzer voyaged to the
Osburn this afternoon to frame up the
contest in collaboration with the lady
caterer. She speaks with a Parisian
accent, and Jaureguy being a
Frenchman himself, the result of the
confab is a menu which is said to
bristle with the names of foreign
“Only those members of the staff
who remain faithful unto the end will
be invited to the banquet This will
mean that a few names will be strick
en off the present roll, icavlng about
40 to participate in the gormandiz
Invitations will be sent out early
next week, and something novel 'n
menu cards is planned. The men will
be asked to bring the girls on the
staff, there being almost a balance be
tween the two sexes.
The usual program of speeches will
be slated, but they will be made snap,
py. The banquet will be held in the
tea room of the Osbum, instead of
the grill room, which is the usual ren
dezvous. To obtain the tea room Jau
reguy was compelled to promise that
the feasters will not smoke, so the
ladies are requested to leave their
“makin’s” at home.

Mr. E. B. Copeland, Director of the
School of Agriculture in the Philip-,
pines, passed through Eugene Mon
day en route to Washington, D. C.,
on his annual vacation. Mr. Copeland
is a friend of Dr. Warren D. Smith,
head of the Geology Department.
“Mr. Copeland built up the Agricul
tural College in the Philippines from
almost nothing to an institution larg
er than the University of Oregon,”
says Dr. Smith..
Washington May Take First and
O. A. C. Second, If Local Dis
tance Men Disappoint.
Oregon will win the conference
meet at 0. A. C. Saturday if Bill Hay
ward has figured the dope correctly,
and past experience shows that the
Wise Man who has been Oregon’s
trainer for the past decade has sel
dom, if ever, made a mistake in fore
casting the result of a meet. Bill
says that Washington should come
second and O. A. C. third. He qual
ifies his prediction only with the pro
vision that the Oregon men have not
“gone back” since his last opportu
nity to study them under racing con
ditions in good weather.
“I can figure, by allowing for the
possibility of our distance men fail
ing, how we can get third. These
are things which a person can’t always
dope out exactly. Three years ago
we went to Whitman with the meet
cinched, and, because a couple of the
best men slipped up, we got only
third out of the fracas. In an eight
man team every fellow has to make
the points allotted him or the jig is
up. There is mighty little chance to
make up points in a meet of this
“Since I have been here I have nev
' er been so handicapped, considering
the material I had to work with. What
was once a covered track is that no
more, and I have been unable to work
my men for speed or endurance be
cause of the lack of an indoor track
and the inclement weather that has
prevailed throughout the season,” said
the trainer.
Bil has a little piece of paper that
is covered with criss-cross lines,
names and figures that he won’t let
anyone see, and at which he glances
when giving out his favorites in the
various events of the meet. “The hun
dred lies between Stanstrom, of Wash
ington, Morrison, of Idaho, Thomp
son, of Whitman, and Miller, of W.
S. C. We will probably not have any
men entered in this event,” he said in
reviewing the probable point winners.
“Morrison, Thompson and Loucks or
Kadderly if they are entered, should
place in the 220, while the money in
the quarter will be divided between
these last two and Schlacher, of W.
S. C., the men probably finishing in
the order named.
“The half should go to three of these
five: Clyde, of Washington, Nelson, of
Oregon, Coleman ana Reynolds, of
0. A. C., and Loucks, if I decide to
run him. The odds in this event lie
in favor of Nelson, considering the
way he has been running of late.
“McKay, of Whitman, Reynolds, of
O. A. C., Chet Huggins and Clyde,
of Washington, should divide the mile
between them, with the dope favoring
the latter. And then the two-mile.
That’s going to be some race, one
grand race—and the winner of it is
going to smash the Northwest record
all to pieces. Smith, of W. S. C.,
Hobgood, of the Aggies, and little old
Mose Payne are the men who are go
ing to look good in that race.
“Muirhead, Fee, Hoover and De
ment, of Whitman, Cunningham, of |
Idaho, and the W. S. C. man, Mc
Croskey, are all running well in the
high hurdles, with the odds in favor
of the first four men mentioned. Fee
and Cunningham will not run the
lows, but the other high hurdlers will j
all be entered. McCroskey llooks the
best in this event.
“I expect ‘Moose’ to win the high
jump, but he will have to go pretty

Boylen Wants Student Body Presi
dent Made Member of the Ath
letic Cabinet
The Student Council voted without
exception to co-operate with the fac
ulty Friday afternoon in a so-called
“Students’ Commonwealth Confer
ence.’’ Professor Fred Stetson and
Miss Mary Perkins, the faculty com
mittee to the Student Council, ap
peared before the Council Wednesday
evening and placed the faculty propo
sition before that body. Professor
Stetson said that representations from
the Department of the Interior and]
other high offices would be present
and would undoubtedly offer some
plan whereby the students of the Uni
versity could be used as a medium in
collecting data of tourist value
of the Oregon forests.
An attempt would then be made to
divert the summer tourists and camp
ers to the Oregon pleasure grounds.
The measure, he inferred, was a eort
of a “back to the woods” moveemnt.
Professor Stetson proposed that the
Student Council preside at this stu
dents’ meeting Friday afternoon at
A motion was made and carried in
the Council that that body stand as
favoring the faculty’s proposition and
that a committee be appointed to han
dle the affair. President Boylen nom
inated Herbert Lombard and Leslie
O. Tooze. The President also sug
gested that some music be pre-ar-l
ranged in order to have an addition
al drawing card.
President Boylen offered two meas
ures to the Council and both were
unanimously approved.
The first dealt with the connection
between the Athletic and Executive
Councils. Boylen said:
“There is at present no connection
whatever between the Executive and
Athletic Councils. The Athletic Coun.
cil spends money, hires coaches, and
performs other functions, while the
Executive Committee is held respon
sible for the affairs and the money
of the Student Body. In reality it
has no say when the Athletic Council
spends money. In order to remedy
this situation, I wish to propose that
the Student Council take this matter
in hand and pass a resolution to the
effect that the President of the Stu
dent Body be made a member of the
Athletic Council. This action would
give the Executive Council represen
tation in the Athletic Council and
counterbalance the two departments.”
The second measure the President
proposed concerned the class tax. The
measure will be drafted definitely
later and submitted to the students
for their consideration. President
Boylen, in submitting his proposition,
“Many students have spoken to me
and I have myself been sadly vexed
by the present system of collecting
the taxes from the various classes.
As the system now stands, only about
60 per cent of the students pay their
class tax, and if you will read over
the list of those paying you will al
ways find that the self-supporting
student is the one that comes through
first, and, as a rule, the man who gets
a $70 check every month doesn’t come
through at all.
“What I propose is an alteration
in the present system so that all class
taxes would be collected through the
administration offices at the begin
ning of the year. This sum could
be fixed by the class advisor and a
committee, and could be easily de

is the will of 42 of his fellow-class*
men, as expressed at the class elec

Hall. The totale vote was 72.
Merlin Batley registered three
years ago from LaGrande, and from
that day to this he has been a will
ing and efficient worker in everything
the class has undertaken to do.
class hour committee was not to be
thought of without Batley as a mem
ber. Every class dance has been re
plete with evidences of his work.
"Whenever an artistic touch has been
planned, Batley is the man who could
be depended upon to come through
with something good. And not only
has he been indispensrble to his class,
but to the Student Body as a whole
he has been hardly less serviceable.

Dr. Hodge Will Delegate Students to
Help Rid Eugene of Pest; Port
land Falls in Line
Dr. Clifton F. Hodge has been asked
to manage a campaign in an endea
vor to rid the town of flies.
Besides the Commercial Club, the
Parent-Teacher Association, the Wo
men’s Auxiliary, and about twenty
students who will use this material
in their Senior theses, will co-operate
under Dr. Hodge.
“The plans are very simple and
very complete,’’ said Dr. Hodge. “We
have divided the city into sections,,
and over each section there will be
somebody to direct, supervise and re
port. When a report of a bad con
ditions is necessary, the person in
charge will go directly to him. All
we are doing is to just help them out.”
In numerous other cities and towns
throughout the state, Dr. Hodge is
helping with similar campaigns.
Portland is about to undertake the
same work, but according to Dr.
Hodge their plans are not as promis
ing as the ones for Eugene.
