Receipts of Show to Be Given to
the Women’s Memorial
For the benefit of the woman’s
building, the University IPlayers will
put on Winchell Smith’s great suc
cess, “The Fortune Hunter,” at the
Eugene theatre, November 18. The
play has been cast and the first re
hearsal will be held tonight.
“The Fortune Hunter” is full of
bright comedy. “Nat,” the hero,
does not like work, but he does like
money, and so when a friend assures
him it is the easiest thing in the
world to marry a village heiress, he
decides to try his luck. He gets em
ployment in the dilapidated drug
store of a kindly but unbusiness like
inventor. “Nat" installs a soda foun
tain and all the girls of the town fall
in love with his looks—and his sodas.
Merlin Hatley, in the role of “The
Fortune Hunter,” promises some
lively bits of comedy, with a regular
soda fountain at his command.
Things don’t always work out as
expected, and "Nat” falls in love
with “Hetty,” the daughter of the
storekeeper, instead of the heiress.
When “Nat” first meets “Betty” she
is slovenly and despondent. Then,
when conditions prosper, she is sent
away to school and conies back the
polished woman with whom “Nat”
falls in love. Echo Zahl will play
Emma Wootten will do justice to
the beautiful, dashing heiress, who
falls in love with Nat and is not hes
itant about telling hltn so. Fortu
nately for her, another lover appears
and suves her from spiusterhood.
On the stage things turn out hap
pily, so Sam Graham's inventions are
successful, Outre by Insuring “Nat”
an heiress- after all.
Other members of the cast are
Mandell Weiss, Martha Beer, Ad
rienne Epplng, and Alex Bowen.
The University Players plan to
stage two plays a year—one in the
spring and one in the fall.

best qualities that intercollegiate
on neats should foster. Such a con
test has the appeal of actuality,
which is one of the qualities intra
mural sports lack. As contests, the
latter have a tinge of make-believe.” I
President Campbell hopes that the
O. A. C.-Oregon game may particu
larly bring out the finest hospitality
and sportsmanship, as well as inge
nuity and cleverness in the way of
decorating and management.
"The committee gave a great deal
of time and study to the problem as
It immediately concerns us here,”
said Dr. E. S. Conklin. "I 'do not
think any further action will be
necessary for some time. I am heart
ily In favor of Intra-mural sports. 1
am not so certain about intercollegi
ate sports. The scholastic standards
of schools without intercollegiate
sports can be matched, however, in
such colleges as Pomona, where they
have Phi Beta Kappa and bar fresh
men from first teams. Athletics are a
m uins of education, but the tail must
not be alia wed to wag the dog.”
Professor Colin V. DyBient said:
'The athletic legislation seems sane,
and if the faculty were setting out to
ehuiveg the status of athletics at all
1 do not see where it could have made
more sensible limitations. I am sorry
that the working out of an important
experiment has in the faculty's judg
ment required temporary suspension
of intercollegiate basketball, but the
gain will, perhaps, more than offsot
the sacrifice. 1 think any person who
calmly sits down to analyze the re
maining items of legislation will find
them unobjectionable from either
a team or a general student stand
"I would say that the action of the
faculty was conservative and sensi
ble," said Professor E. W. Allen.
“That Is what the faculty is for, isn't
"1 am very much pleased,” said
Dr. John Straub. "The action of the
faculty has not curtailed athletics
"The whole plan was intended to
bo conservative and progressive,”
said Professor E. E. l>eCou, chairman
of the committee on whose report
the faculty legislation was based. “It
was only in minor details that the
opinion of the committee and of the
faculty was not unanimous." Pro
fessor lVOou is said by another mem
ber of the faculty to he "one of the
few who see the athletic situation
from all points."
"Even the modification of the
scholastic standing clause, the schol
arship demanded of men who would
compete for the Pntverstty the fol
lowing semester is higher than it is
simply for students, Professor DoPou
went on to explain. "A man must
make 12 credits to stay on the team;
a student must make only nine hours
to stay in the University.”
Emphasis is laid on intra-mural
sports in the address of the commit
tee to the faculty, prefacing its re
port. and figures showing the extent
of such reports for 1914-1915 are
EMERALD FARES FAR
IN FOREIGN PARTS
Record Circulation Hoped For
in Near Future, According
Siam, Japan, Alaska, the Philip
pine Islands and 29 states of the
union are represented on the circu
lation list of the Oregon Emerald.
Exchanges, of which there are about
50, are not included in the list.
According to Floyd Westerfield,
manager of the Emerald, the circula
tion of the paper this week is 1300,
which is not only an increase over
the number printed this time last
year, but within 100 of last year’s
circulation. The manager hopes to
establish a new record for subscrip
tions before many more editions are
off the press.
The news space and amount of ad
vertising are about the same as
last year’s paper, although a number
of town merchants have increased
their individual ads.
Including duplicates, 577 men and
210 women took part in out-door
sports last year.
The commit'te concluded, after its
three weeks of investigation, with
meetings almost every day, that:
“We find in the athletics of the
University few objectionable prac
- Professor H. C. Howe, another
member of the committee, said that
athletics were, he believed, in a very
satisfactory state before, but that the
faculty “has crystalized its beliefs,
and stated its unwritten theories” in
adopting with so little exception, the
report of the committee. “I consider
the faculty action satisfactory. They
made no great changes.”
“I am fairly well satisfied with
the faculty legislation of Thursday,”
said Professor 'D. W. Morton. He
explained that he had not been here
long, and therefore may not express
ills opinions decidedly even if he has
them. "I believe that the general
tendency will be to increase athletic
activities and athletic spirit. “The
recommendations made to the north
west conference are good.”

that has been working on the athlet
