Portland Club Gathers Together
Players to Get Varsity's
WANT "KID GLOVE” WEATHER
No Game With Multnomah Un
less There Is Training and
More Pep, Says Coach.
There will be no soccer games with
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic club
unless the Oregon squad turns out bet
ter to practice and rounds into some hind
This ultimatum was delivered last
night by Colin V. Dyment, faculty coach,
and James Sheehy, captain, after a prac
tice for which fjve men turned out.
Squad Afraid of Bad Weather
“Yes, we mean business,” said Captain
Sheehy. “The soccer squad seems to
consist of a lot of fair weather players.
There is plenty of interest in the game,
1 but plenty of reluctance also to get
tender limbs chilled and pretty ankles
muddy. Last year the squad got out
in all kinds of weather, and when the
time came to play the Multnomah club
there was an eleven ready that the club
men failed to beat. This year we have
two teams out when the sun is shining
and the ground is dry. Otherwise there
are few faithfuls, and the rest may be
found in the gymnasium watching bas
ketball, or by then- fraternity fireplaces
Mr. Dyment said:
Club After Soccer Scalp
“Chagrined' at not having won either
game with the University last year, the
Multnomah club has gathered a squad of
Scotch, English and interscholastic soc
cer stars from all over Portland, and
frankly admits it is after the University’s
scalp this winter.
Must Earn Game
“We are good losers up here, if we
have to lose, and no matter how poor a
squad is, if the men have earned the
games, the games will be played. But it
would be unfair to athletics to put out a
team that has not got itself into con-!
dition, that cannot handle a soccer ball,
* which at best is the hardest of balls to
handle skilfully, and that would merely
be going to Portland for the trip. Mult
nomah would beat it 10 to 0. We do not
propose to let the University get humil
iated in that way.
“I have other things to do than per
sonally to beg soccer players to turn
out. Coaching the soccer squad is a
gratuitous performance, and it is up to
the players to exercise enough initiative
to turn out uncoaxed.
“There will be consistent training from
en, or else no games with Multnomah.”
CAMPUS ROSES ASKED
FOR COLUMBIA HIGHWAY
The highway dedicating committee of
the Portland Rose Festival association
has asked the University to contribute
some of the rose slips cultivated for dis
tribution among the high schools of the
state, to be planted along the Columbia
v Ground Superintendent H. M. Fisher
, says he will set out 1.000 more cuttings
from the Frau Carl Drusohki hedge to
be used for this purpose. He has already
, grown 4,000 yearlings for the schools.
Ever since the announcement concern
ing them was printed in the last “Press
Bulletin,” requests have been drifting
in for various numbers. Several private
persons desire them, also the Christian
church of Eugene. All the requests will
be fulfilled, says Mr. Fisher.
“We need the roses,” writes the chair
man of the dedicating committee, “and
consider it an excellent opportunity for j
the University to contribute something
to the highway." S. C. Lancaster, who
has been in charge of much of the engi
neering work on the road will personally
direct the planting. The cuttings will be
of proper growth within a year.

Picture, Once Refused.
Portland, Ore., Jan. 10.—Portland
newspapermen declare today that Frank*
lin S. (“Bones”) Allen, Oregon, ’13, is
the first graduate in their knowledge to
find actual use for a college fraternity
pin. Allen, who only recently has en
gaged in repertorial work with the Ore
gonian, was put on a story a day or so
ago, and it was necessary to get a picture
of a pretty woman who had been in
volved in a crime.
“Oh, we don’t want this to get to the
reporters,” the woman’s mother told (
Allen, then asking him if he were a news
“Bones” had just come from police
headquarters, so- he told the mother:
“I am from the police station,” and
having delayed getting a badge, threw
back his coat and showed his fraternity
pin gleaming there.
Allen got away with it, got the picture
and left, telling the woman that reporters
were a good lot of boys and that they
would treat her well on the story if they
had the picture.
CLUB EXPECTS $500
BY FRIDOT MIDNIGHT
Fortnightly Women Labor In
dustriously to Raise Memo
If the $500 pledged by the Eugene
Fortnightly club toward the women’s
memorial club is not in the treasury be
fore midnight next Friday, it will not
be the fault of the group of uncommon
ly energetic women that has 'been labor
ing on the Fortnightly’s big event.
With the big armory flooT occupied by
dancers and the private rooms of the
armory filled with groups of card play
ers, the club will not have to worry fur

at a time when the club desired to set
an example to the Federated Women’s
clubs of the state in the .way of giving
to the women’s building.
The dance and card party will be semi
formal. Dancing will be interrupted
only enough to make room for these four

A. R. Tiffany Announces That Deficit
Will Be Made Up Late In Spring
Trip to Coos Bay.
Prohibition, and incidentally la grippe,
cold weather, counter attractions and
hard times were responsible for the de
ficit in the annual Xmas Glee club trip,
according to A. R. Tiffany, today.
Expenses Were Normal
“Our expenditures were practically the
same as last year,” be said, “ but our
receipts were considerably smaller in
some places. I thing that it was due to
epidemics of la grippe and in eastern
Oregon to prohibition.”
Deficit Is $205
The total expenses of the trip were
approximately $045, and the total re
ceipts were $740, leaving a deficit of
More Trips Planned
“We hope to break even in the end,
however,” Mr. Tiffany went on. “The
Glee club will probably go to Corvallis,
and the chances are that it will visit
Coos Bay during the spring vacation. We
are making arrangements to that end
The box office receipts at the different
towns visited during the Xmas holidays
were as follows:
The Dalles, $39.75; Da Grande, $192;
Pendleton, $139.75; Baker, $117.00;

CHAPTER AT0. A. C.
The members of Oregon Gamma Phi
chapter of Alpha Tau Omego went to
Corvallis Friday where they assisted ?u
the installation of a chapter of the Fra
ternity in the Ahneek club of O. A. C.
The charter was granted tA the Ah
neek club last fall and the new chapter
will be known ns the “Oregon Alpha
Sigma” chapter of Alpha Tau Omego.
Lewie Williams, of Washington Gam
ma Pi chapter and chief of province
number 9, was installing officer. The
alumni association of the fraternity in
Portland had charge of the arrange
ments. With the exception of the ritual
work, the initiation was left to the mem
bers of Oregon Gamma Phi.
Eleven chapters of the fraternity were
represented at the installation including
Oregon Gamma Phi, Washington Gamma
Pi, W. S. C. Gamma Chi, Michigan Beta

not much—the entrance of the Sky-Pilot

will not be a radical sheet. On the other
hand, it will cleave to a typographical
policy for class purposes.

setting up news,. the Sky-Pilot will be
set by the hands and the sweat of the

$5,000 IS PLEDGED

A state-wide campaign is being carried
on by Mrs. George Gerlinger, regent of
the University, supported by university
and club women, to Taise the $100,000
that is considered necessary for the
erecting and furnishing of this building.
Mrs. Gerlinger hus addressed most of

“ROSE MAID” WILL BE
BIG MUSICAL TREAT
Chorus of 125 Voloes Scheduled to Ren
der Cantata Next Tuesday In
the New Armory.
That the concert to be given by the
Philhormonic society Tuesday evening,
January 18, at the annory, will be one of
the biggest musical treats in Eugene for
many a day, is the opinion of those who
have heard the society in practice. A
chorus of one hundred and twenty-five of
Eugene’s best vocalists, under the direc
tion of Mr. R. H. Lyman, dean of the
University school of music, will give the
“Rose Maiden,” a cantata. Assisting the
chorus will be the University orchestra,
composed of twenty-five instrumental
ists, and undeT the training of Miss Win
ifred Forbes. The soloists of the even
ing are well qualified to keep up the
high standard set by the Philharmonic
society in its concert last year. The part
of Roseblossom will be sung by Mrs.
Pauline Miller Chapman, of Portland, one
of the finest soprnnos in the northwest.
She has a voice of great volume and fine
training, and has won many friends by
the charm of her voice. The contralto
part will be divided between two of Eu
gene’s best known contraltos, Miss
Louise Yoran, and Mrs. A. Middleton.
The tenor solos will be taken by Mr,
Henry Paul Filer, Eugene’s dramtic
tenor. The baritone parts will be sung
by John Claire Monteith, of Portland,
whose voice is well known to Eugene
music loveTS, as well as to those of many
of the cities of the northwest. At the
piano will be Miss Ruth Davis. One of
the features of the evening will be the
rendition of a new state song, composed
by Eugene people, Mr. *pA Mrs. J. Nor
man Waterhouse. ^
Twenty-five-cent dances are given at
the University of Washington for those

GLEE CLUB PROGRAM
WAS VERY EFFECTIVE
Critic Says Concert of Girl Glee
sters a Decided Improvement
Over Men’s Club.
SOLO MEMBERS ARE FEATURES
10-20-30 Comedy Proves Big
Appeal With Charlie Fenton
Taking Leading Part.
A fair, but far from capacity-crowd,
attended the annual concert given by the
U. of O. Women's Glee Club Saturday
night at the Eugene theatre.
Program Effectively Rendered
The program was well chosen and very
effectively presented, but perhaps com
plete enjoyment, at least on the part of
a portion of the audience, was marred by t
the failure of the management to have
copies of the programs for distribution
among those attending. This left a major
part of the audience in a state of blank
ignorance as to just what selection they
were listening to. ,
Improvement Over Men’s Club
The spectncle was a decided improve
ment over that presented by the Men's
Glee club. Some effort had been made
to give an artistic setting. Tho critic,
perhaps mistakenly, assumes some little
pride in the fact that those things which
he most strongly inveighed against, in
his write-up of the Men’s Glee Club per
formance, were here effectually remedied,
to wit: the setting, the position of the
piano soloist, and the ensemble singing.
Solos Receive Applause
The solo numbers were especially well
received. Miss Virginia Peterson gave a
sprightly and natural rendering of a
Greig composition entitled "To the
Spring." She received very much applause
and was most pleasing in her encore,
singing a little song which apparently
went by tho name of “Rosalie.” Miss
Leah Perkins gave a clear and artistic
rendition of “A Ronnie Curl.” by Chad
wick, while Miss Eva Brock intrigued
greatly with a Godarch selection the
“Lullaby from Jocelyn,” and on encore
whose origin and name Is not known to
the critic. The piano solo of Miss Mona
Dougherty was well received and one of
the evening’s pleasing numbers.
10-20-30 Girls Are Charming
Comedy relief was given by a little
sketch called “10-20-30”, in which Char
lie Fenton, Emma Wooton, Margaret
Welch, “Kat” Fraley distinguished them
selves by their remarkable beauty and
power of dramatic interpretation. Miss
Fenton was especially powerful in her
appeal to the emotions of the audience.
Tho plot of the sketch disappeared with
the first cheese sandwich into the charm
ing facial orifices of Misses Fenton and
The other mirth producer “Do-Re-Mi",
would have been more effective if there
had been a few more rehearsals.
Quartet Is Effective
A description of the performance would
not be complete without mention of the
charming rendition of a paraphrase on
the quartette from “Rigoletto.” (Verdi
Llszt) and an effective presentation of
a phnraphrnse on the quartette from
"Rigolette.” (Vcrdi-Liszt) and an effec
tive presentation of Hawley’s the “Sweet
est Flower that Blows.” by a quartette
consisting of Misses Brock, Tinker, Wood
