Whitman Capitulates to Varsity
Track Athletics Are Undisturb
ed Due to High Standing of
Several Matters Are Referred
to Committees, To-wit: Tax
and Junior Week-End.
Summary of Athletic Legislation
Intercollegiate basketball sus
pended experimentally for the
Pre-season training camp dis
Varsity football and baseball •
practice limited to period between
4 and 6:30 p. m.
Intercollegiate football con
tests limited to seven in any one
Intercollegiate baseball sched
ules limited to teams west of the
Cascades, iDut inter-sectional
games to decide northwest cham
pionship permitted.
Offering of inducements to any
prospective student with a view
of his becoming candidate for a
Varsitj^ athletic team forbidden.
Representatives to Northwest
College Conference meetings to be
appointed by president from fac
Faculty members of athletic
council to constitute a standing
faculty committee instructed to
report at least once a semester.
Northwest conference college
scholarship requirements to apply
to all student activities in Univer
sity of Oregon.
Intercollegiate athletics at the
University have passed through their
baptism of fire, and with the excep
tion of intercollegiate basketball,
have been retained. Track athletics
remain undisturbed. The registrar’s
statistics showed that the average in
scholarship of the track squad was
not only higher than that of any
fraternity, or the men’s dormitory,
or of any other athletic group, but
was also higher than the scholar
ship of any group of girls, with the
single exception of the girls’ dormi
tory. Football and baseball have
been modified, as shown by the fore
going summary.
Intercollegiate basketball was sus
pended for the present so that Coach
Hugo Bezdek and Trainer William
Hayward might give for a season or
two their undivided attention to non
conference players. The suspension
Is an experiment. If the student who
plays basketball but is unable to
make the intercollegiate teams gets
enough added individual attention to
make it appear that he would suffer
from resumption of intercollegiate
basketball, it will not be resumed.
The limiting of intercollegiate
baseball to teams west of the Cas
cades was intended to cut out the
long, hard and expensive trip of the
baseball team to Walla Walla, Pull
men and Moscow, the trip requiring
more than a week. The single inter
sectional series of games necessary
to decide the northwest champion
ship will require this trip on Ore
gon’s part only on years when Ore

Name Is Casey
and She’s German
In the Dead of Night When All’s
A-snore, the ’Phone Jingled,

Down at the Chi Omega house, on
Mill street—there is a freshman—
and her name is Casey—and she’s
German—and the other night—when
the telephone rang—at 1:30 in the
morning—after manner of all tel
ephones at that hour—everyone woke
up—they had all been in bed, you see

was a telegram or a death—or may

Rose wanted some one to hurry—
for goodness sakes—and answer it

Minnville—might be calling—and
Everyone was busy right away—be
cause it was dark and—besides it
was cold you know. And so it was
that this freshman—who was Ger
man—and whose name was Casey
went—and she— shivered—in the
hall—and—not only from the cold—
but she got there—and she said—
Hello—which is what you always say
—when you answer the phohe—and
a man’s voice answered—and he said
—that he was from the electric light
and power company—and that he
wondered—if she could tell him—
maybe—if the arc light on the cor
ner was still burning—and she said
she’d see—and so she went down—
another hall—and she saw that it
was and so she said—to the man—
who said he was from the light com
pany—that the light was still burn

“Blow it out!”
And the freshman—whose name
was Casey—and who was German—

Military Preparedness Is Com
mended For Oregon at
Dorm. Luncheon.
Governor Withycombe forcibly ex-!
pressed his belief in the need of mili
tary preparedness, when as a lunch
eon guest Wednesday he spoke to the
members of the Dormitory Club.
„“I firmly believe in military train
ing in our colleges and universities
and it will be a glad day for me when
a company is organized at the Uni
versity of Oregon. I know that the
Pacific coast stands at the mercy
of a possible foreign foe; tribute
could be levied from every import
ant city, so I think It wise that we
prepare to denfed ourselves.
“I do not believe in militarism in
the generally accepted meaning of
the term and I do not believe pre
paredness means militarism. Out of
5000 men who have taken military
training at O. A. C. only five have
engaged in military pursuits.
Mrs. G. T. Gerlinger and W. K.
Newell, members cf the University
board of regents approved the gov
ernor’s views in regard to military
training in the University and Mrs.
Gerlinger was applauded when she
emphatically declared: “I can think
of no words adequate to express my
contempt for that person who whim
pers, ‘I did not raise my boy to be a
soldier.’ ”
C. M. Hill. D. D., one of the first
students at the University, said
there was a moral substitute for war
and hoped to see the day when uni
versal peace would reign.
Clubs and Alumni Are Showing
Live Interest in Securing
Campus Building.
Portland Alumnae Are Planning
to Rent Ice Hippodrome
Nov. 26 to Aid Cause.
Interest in the proposed woman’s
memorial building is steadily in
creasing, and alumni clubs, and
other organizations throughout the
state are daily working for appro
priations for this new campus build
Foremost in the movement is Mrs.
George Gerlinger, University regent,
who has been lecturing for the last
month in behalf of the new structure.
Mrs. Gerlinger will speak before
the State Federation of Woman’s
clubs at Salem Wednesday morning,
October 23, and will ask for the the
state-wide support of these organiza
tions in pledging money for the wo
man’s building. Her topic is an
nounced as “The University and the
New Building.”
The Portland alumnae met last
week at a luncheon held at the Ben
son hotel, and made extensive plans
for raising another $500 for the
building fund. About 50 women
were present, including Miss Emma
Griebel, president of the Associated
Collegiate Alumnae, Mrs. Vincent
Cook, Mrs. George Gerlinger, and
Miss Luella Clay Carson. It is their
plan to charter the Hippodrome ice
rink in that city for the night of
November 26, and call the affair
“college night.” It is expected that
many of the students from Eugene
will be home for their Thanksgiving
holidays and that this will be an
excellent time for the party. Mrs.
Benson Beach, chairman of the com
mittee, hopes for an attendance of
some 2000 persons.
"It is hoped that the fraternities
and sororities will take boxes,” said
Mrs. Beach. “The price will be $5
per box and the general admission
will be 50 cents.”
Portland people have already
shown shown their interest in the af
fair. The Portland Collegiate Alum
nae is looking to Eugene for strong
The Collegiate Alumnae at Eu
gene have just added another dona
tion to the $5 0 already given by
them, making their total gift to the
woman’s building $70.
“The local alumnae have shown
such loyalty, such devotion and such
spirit in giving to this cause,” said
Miss Ruth Guppy.
Louise Bailey and Miss Guppy will
go to the State Federation of Wo
men’s clubs in Salem next week as
representatives of the University
Women’s league, which is a member
of the federated clubs of this state.
The Fortnightly club of Eugene
has pledged $500 to the building
fund, and other clubs have signi
fied their intention of following its

Officials in Charge Say There Is
Fighting Chance to Get
10,000 Home-Comers.
0. A. C. Promises to Co-operate
in Event, and Extraordinary
Events Are Scheduled.
Ten thousand people on the cam
pus one day! Do you think it can
be done? Well, the president of the
student body and members of the
student council think that there is a
fighting chance to get that number
of souls on the Oregon campus
home-coming day, November 20.
“Probably 800 alumni have been
reached by the fraternities through
personal letters," says Lamar Tooze,
“an average of 10 letters having been
sent out by each house. Ten thous
and Oregon stickers, advertising the
day, have been distributed for mail
ing on letters and packages. The
University administration office is
using them on its mail.
“Space has been secured in the
University Press Bulletin, which is
sent to people all over the state.” The
president of the O. A. C., student
body, G. R'. Hoerner, has promised
that the Agricultural College will co
operate with Oregon to make the day
of the big game, and the home-com
ing day a success, says Tooze. “It
will be not merely a University of
Oregon home-coming day, but a state
home-coming day. We are expecting
10,000 people to vis't the campus
that day.”
Excursion trains will, or course
be run on both lines from O. A. C.—
Don Orput and Harold Fitzgibbons
will have charge of the special train
from Portland. A band will accom
pany it, and Orput, It Is said, has
promised that he will have the ex
cursionists made Into trained root
ers by the time he gets them here.
Frank Scaiefe has charge of the
I advertising matter, which is going to
the down-town papers. The exten
sion lecturers have been announcing
home-coming day at every lecture
given. Earl Kilpatrick, instructor in
the extension department, is in touch
with the organizations of alumni over
the state, and he has kept them post
ed as to University plans for No
vember 20.
"An effort wil be made," says
Tooze, "to get the local merchants
to close their stores from 1:30 to
5 p. m., on the afternoon of the
game. Interest has been heightened
considerably since the games of last
Saturday—O. A. C. with W. S. C. and
Oregon with Idaho.”
“We are asking the merchants of
Eugene to decorate their 'windows
for the day,” says Avison, of the
home-coming committee, "and in
connection with this, the various or
ganizations, fraternities, dormitories
and houses where students live, will
be asked to decorate also. The
Luckey Jewelery company will offer
a beautiful cup to the house decorat
ed in the most artistic manner. The
cup will be formally presented at the
dance following the football game.
All organizations or the kind men
tioned are expected to compete. It
is suggested that the decoration
scheme be confined to University

Committee to
Offer Resolutions
Plan Provides That Present
System Apply to Under
classmen Only.
The student council committee,
composed of Louise Bailey and Max
Sommer, will present the following
resolution In regard to new cut rule
at their meeting next Wednesday:
First, that the rule should remain
as at present, but should apply only
to underclassmen; secondly, that It
should be automatically dropped
from the records of upper classmen,
provided they have full junior stand
ing at the beginning of the third
Last year the question was brought
up in the council and though many I
plans were considered, none met
with approval by all the memlbers.
The system of non-accumulatlve now
in practice was accepted In preference
to the old system established three |
years ago, the newer one making It
possible to drop the cuts adding up
to less than eight a year. This meth
ord did not prove entirely satisfac
tory, and It has not been until this
year that a plan has been formed of
which every member of the student
council approves.

ed. Huntington passed just over the

of the quarter. Oregon 21; Whitman
