SHOW REFORM SPIRIT
IT N. W. CONFERENCE
Oregon Representative Says
“Never Such Cleaning Up
Athletically as at Session.”
Tiint the Northwest Conference probab
ly never had such a cleaning tip athletic
ally ns it underwent at its session last
week, is the opinion of Colin V. Dyinent,
faculty representative of Oregon, and pre
sident of the new Pacific Coast Confer
ence. There was a general spirit of re
form in the conference, he explained,
which did not arise necessarily from fac
ulty influence, although it so happened
that each institution was represented by
one faculty member.
Faculty Members to Attend
As its first bit of cleaning tip, the con
ference passed the following resolution:
“Each institution shall he represented
in meetings of the conference by a faculty
member who is» not. commercially inter
ested in athletics, and who shall east thej
vote for his institution; and if desired
by not: more than two others.”
This movement, removing voting power
from those “commercially interested,
was not a faculty movement. Professor
Dyinent says, but a move of the coaches
themselves. Coach Hezdek took his stand j
ns favoring it.
As a second reform, pre-season, football
training camps were legislated out. No
(ember 12 was set as the earliest dal ■ ,
for practices, and these to be held no
where but on the campus.
Scouting Is Eliminated
A third achievement in the cleaning up
program was to establish a definition "
scouting and to recommend that the prne
tice of it be absolutely prohibited. A def
inition submitted by tin* T’niversily n j
Oregon delegates was rejected finally by ,
the coaches as being too lax. Professor |
Dyinent was chairman of a ...
winch formulated the definition accepted
by the conference. The definition inelinbe

coaches and prospective students, and
paying the fare of high school athletes
to interscholastic meets fostered by a
“A further evidence of the good spirit
pervading the conference, Professor Dy
incut said, “was the wholly cordial feel
ings over the new coast conference. An
other important factor involved was the
recommendation to faculties that their
representatives be sent authorized to ac
cept schedules definitely. There was no
beckoning off delegates for private con
versa tlou, no sudden silences when a
third party passed.
‘The conference action has not trim

"The football schedule for next year will
lie one of the heaviest and best we have

The committee, of which Cloyd Dawson
is chairman has revised the constitution
and a draft of the revisions will be read
before the student body for their aceept
nnce. The reading has been changed in
some ‘SO odd places.
At the present time in Article II, Sec
tion II, of the constitution, covering who
shall belong to the associated students,
the name of the University Law school is
left out. An amendment will be submit
ted to the effect that the words “Law
School” be inserted in this clause.
Also there will be considered an amend
ment placing the control of all athletics
for which.an “O” shall be awarded in the
hands of the athletic committee and all
other sports in charge of the executive
committee. Soccer is already in the hands
of the executive committee, but minor
athletics have no special provision made
“Now when any minor sport needs
money for a trip the matter must be
brought up before the students and it
means a lot of red tape and wasted time,”
said Cloyd Dawson, sponsor for this
amendment. “Under the new amendment
the question would never have to be sub
mitted and the executive committee could
take care of the proposition and arrange
for trips, schedules, etc.”
