Director Mott Says Cast Has
Assimilated Military Spirit
of the Drama.
Wot Is Pleasingly Laid in Ari

By Martha Beer.
Although there has been but four re
hearsals of “Arizona,” the senior class
play which is to be given at the Eugene
theatre on Friday next, James Mott al
ready has the caste whipped into fine
shape and if necessary, could put on a
creditable performance two days ahead
of time. Practically eveTy one knows
their lines, and the way the senior class
has assimilated the military spirit of the
drama reflects great credit on them and
on their coach.
“All the world loves a lover,” stage
lovers, especially, and Merlin Batley as
Lieutenant Denton and Rita Fraley as
Bonita Canby are no exception to the
rule. They are both experts in the art
of dramatic interpretation, and their
performance of the leading roles of the
play promises to be a treat.
The plot of the play is laid in Arizona,
where, as Mrs. Oanby says: “You have to
let the clock run down to tell when it’s
Sunday.” Mr. Canby is a millionaire
ranch owner with two daughters; Bonita,
young, vivacious and unmarried, and
EStella, also young and emotional, and
married to Colonel Bonham, of the 11th
U. S. Cavalry who is much older than
Captain Hodgman, who cares only for
her money, works upon the affections
of Estrella and makes her promise to go
away with him. Lieutenant Denton, who
loves Bonita, discovers their plans, and
in the absence of Colonel Bonham pre
vents the elopment and reveals Hodg
man's real character to Estrella. Denton
has saved Estrella from a scandal, but
in so doing, he has incurred the suspi
cion of Colonel Bonham, who has re
turned home unexpectedly.
Rather than explain his presence in the
house to the irate Colonel, Denton re
signs his lieutenancy and becomes a ma
jor-domo in the employ of Mr. Canby in
order to be near Bonita.
Estrella is not the only woman who has
come undeT the influence of Hodgman’s
machinations, and Tony Mostano, a Mex
ican vaquero on the Canby ranch, shoots
Hodgman when he discovers that Hodg
man has wronged his sweetheart, Lena

Unfinished Ballad Is Unearthed
by Hungry Copy Editor;
More to Come (Maybe).

loose papers on the copy desk in the Em
erald office. It is published in the hope
that the author will claim and finish it,
thus enabling the Emerald to give its
readers the remainder of the poem in the
next issue:)

The Oregana with 400 pages is out.
Today copies of it were being distributed.
The book is dedicated to William L.
Hayward with the words: “In apprecia

he has inspired and encouraged, and of
his influence over the state for better
and squarer athletics, this volume of the
Oregana is respectfully dedicated.”
The aim of the book as set forth in the
foreword was to present an accurate,
comprehensive, and attractive record of
the year and to reflect the spirit of

The drawings at the head of each de

The athletic events of the year are re

pictures and writ-ups of the football
Two innovations in the Oregana are
the inclusion of schoolship and writing at
the university. In the latter section
is printed some of the more or less liter

There will b* two polling places, one

George Cotton Enters Race
A novel situation has arisen through
the withdrawal of Howard McCulloch as
candidate for manager of the Emerald.
McCulloch wan the only nominee for the
place and the constitution permits no
special session for submitting other
names. George Colton has announced his
candidacy for the managership and vot
ers will simply have to supply his name
in the blank left on the ballot for that
The “popularity contest” is a new
wrinkle at Oregon. The Luckey Jewelry
company is of fering a cup for the most
popular woman and for the most popular
athlete. There will be separate ballots
for this election and a separate board
to count them.
The sophomore representative amend
ment is up for another vote; one amend
ment would provide gold block “O’s” for
Emerald and Oregana editors and one
amendment to the by-laws would award
blankets to three-year letter men who
turn out in any one sport for four con
secutive seasons.
Many Have Not Entered Meet
So Far, Probably Due
to Expense. !
One hundred and sixty entries hare al
ready been received by Registrar A. R.
Tiffany for the state inter scholastic
track and field meet, to be staged on
Kincaid field next Saturday, May 13.
Many of the schools represented in for
mer years have not been heard from.
Neither Washington High, Portland
Academy, or Columbia University, of
Portland—schools that have featured
strongly in the meets of pas,t years,—
haven’t entered as yet. Foster is the
only athletic entered from ealitern Ore
gon so far. i
Cost Cuts Down Entries.
The failure of the many high chools
throughout the state to be represented,
is not because of a lack of interest in
track athletics, according to Mr. Tiffany,
but because each school must pay the ex
penses incurred by her athletii where ns
in former years, the University has
brought them here. I
Columbia University won the honors
last year with 38 points and the year
before with 37. Jefferson And Wash
ington highs taking second respectively.
Medals will be presented far all thir
teen events. Gold for first;, silver for
second; and bronze for third. The team
winning the relay will receive a silver
loving cup with the name and time made
engraved upon it.

Bezdek’s Men on Edge But
Scores 6-0 and 6-3 Favor
(By Jimmy Sheehy)
The Oregon baseball team will not
make the southern trip to play Califor
nia and Stanford.
That mueh was decided yesterday when
the varsity unnecessarily jeopardized its
conference title by playing O. A. O. a
doiuble-headcr amidst intermittent show
ers of rain on a field that did not bear
a semblance to a baseball diamond. By
virtue of defeating the lemon-yellow by
scores of 6 to 0 and 0 to 3 the Aggies
won tho conference championship and
the right to invade California.
The first game started at 3 p. m.,
a half an hour later than the scheduled
time. Bill Tuerck was on the mound for
Oregon with Sieberts doing the heavy
work for O. A. C. The varsity went out
in one, two, three order in their half
of the opening inning, not being able to
get the ball out of the infield. With two
down Tuerck wnlked Goble who scored
a minute later on Baldwin’s single and
Siebert’s two-lmgger. Goble again scored
in the third on Grebe’s error, followed
by a sacrifice and Loof's pinch single.
The Aggies scored one in the fourth
frame and drove over two more scores
in the fifth on singles by I/oof, and Funk
and Morgan’s lucky two-base hit to right
field. Hits by Sieberts and Loof scored
j.uuuwin m ine eigntn wno was a given
n. life on Cornell's error. Sleberts was in
rare mettle throughout the entire nine
innings and the varsity was able to glean
but two safe swats off his delivery. He
used a fust breaking curve almost en
tirely to fool the Oregon batters, coupled t
yrtth a fast ball. He kept the ball on the
corners and pitched unbeatable ball.
It is hard to account for the hammer
ing the Aggies gave Bill Tuerck in his
final appearance under the lemon-yellow.
No matter how much stuff Bill put on
ihe ball the Beavers cracked him to all
corners of the field. Had the game been
played' on Friday ns scheduled the score
Would no doubt have been reversed. Beis
dek’s men were on edge at the time and
the three days’ layoff dimmed their bat
ting eyes ns well removing the dash and
Kip from the team.
After a 15 minutes intermission, to
allow Itathbun to warm up, the second
game was stnrted. Bieberts again was in
the points for the orange and black and
lasted the full nine innings. Sheehy,
first man up for Oregon, led off with a
long three-bagger to deep center field,
but wont to seed while the next three
batters were being retired. Seeley reach
ed first on Nelson’s miscue and went to
second on Morgan’s scratch single. They
both advanced on Goble’s out and scored
when Medley allowed Baldwin’s short fly
to fall on the ground in front of him.
Errors by Cornell, Medley, and Nelson,
coupled with a wild pitch and Loot’s bin
gle counted two more tallies.
Sheehy singled in the third inning but
was forced at second on Malson’s
grounder. Cornell reached first on See
ley’s boot and Maison and Cornell tallied
on successive hits by Nelson and Hunt
ington. Huntington scored when Loof
threw the slippery ball fur over Goble’s
heud. A steady ruin fell throughout the
enrly innings of the game and Umpire
Casey was about to call the game just
before the shower stopped. The ball be
came as slimy as an eel and it was al
most impossible to haiidle it cleanly.
However, the Aggies saw to it that
pitcher Rlebert’s was well supplied with
dry balls whenever he desired them.
Loof knocked in the Beaver’s fifth
run in the same frame, following a base
on balls and an error by Maison. They
brought in their final tally in the eighth
when Seeley reached third and Rathbun
overran a bad throw from the outfield.
Every break of the game went against
Oregon. Time and aguin they had men
on bases only to have a rally nipped by
