weeks’ summer session according to
Registrar A. R. Tiffany, aims to extend
the opportunity of its equipment, library,
and instruction to those persons who
have this period open for study,! and who
in most cases are fully employed during
the regular college year. Seniors and
some times Juniors find it convenient,
according to a reliable source, to utilize
the six weeks in an effort to graduate
with their class.
Information in regard to the terms
of admission, entrance fees, courses of
study, registration and accompiodations
may be obtained from Mr. Tiffany.
NEW CUSTOM IS INITIATED
Freshman Will Hold Meeting to Elect
Officers for Next Year.1
The freshman class this year has
started a new custom in the way of elec
tions. Instead of the elections being held
in the fall, after entering college, as has
always been the custom heretofore, they
will be held this semester. Any office
will be filled to be taken charge of
at the beginning of the next year.
The arguments put up by the support
ers of the ruling is that it will make
the organization of the class more com
plete for the beginning of the next year.
The freshman-sophomore mix comes off
during the first two or three Weeks of
'he school year, and with a littlje organ
ization, the class will be more able to
compete with the greater numbler of the
Nominations for the coming year will
be held at the next meeting of the fresh
man class, which will probably be some
time during the present week.
The election, with the possibilities as
very doubtful, at present, will come the
week, following tfee nominationi.

18 Are Present at Banquet at
Osburn After “Arizona;”
$400 Is Cleared.
The cast of the senior class play, “Ari
zona” ended its successful performance
with a banquet in the Japanese tea room
of the Osburn hotel. The play, which
was given in the Eugene theatre last
Friday evening cleared nearly $400 for'
Eighteen persons: the members of the
cast, James W. Mott, the coach, and
Leslie Tooze, the business manager, were
seated about the table. The place cards
were miniature replicas of each member's
part. On the cover was the actor’s name
and the name of the part which he or
she had in the play. The first inside
page was covered with clippings from
the “Emerald” which told of the way
the actor had handled the part. The other
pages contained favorite lines from that
The banquet was rather informal and
no long speeches were indulged in. It
was the occasion of a general good time.
Several of the more famous scenes of
the play were repeated. Merlin Batley
made a short speech of appreciation of
the work done by Mr. Mott in coaching
The actors later turned themselves in
to a glee club and gave a rendition of the
songs of Oregon. About eight-thirty,
after a yell for Mr. Mott and the famous
senior class yell,

the cast disbanded.
Those who were present at the banquet
were, Clark Burgard, Earl Bronaugh,

WOMEN’S FIELD DAY NEXT
Seven Events Including Track Meet;
Trophies Will Be given.
The men are not the only people who
can hold field days, the women have one
scheduled for May 27, for co-eds only.
The events include: a half mile canoe
race between the winners of the. fresh
man-Bophomore and junior-senior teams,
archery, golf, tennis, swimming, track
meet, and baseball. With the exception
of baseball the contest will all be to
establish inter-class championships. The
baseball game will be between the win
ners in the “doughnut” games and the
major team. Complications are evident
in case the Oregon club team continues to
win and qualify for the finals because
several of this team are majors.
Trophies will be offered by the Wom
an’s athletic association.
The events for the track meet are: a
40 yard dash, relay race, running broad
jump, running high jump, shot put, and \
two funny events,
Rain Dampens Spirit of Seattle Trackmen Following Lemon*
Yellow 71-to-60 Victory Over 0. A. C.—Hayward Will
Mobilize Thursday, With 12 Husky Tracksters Primed
for a Hard Battle.
News from the University of Washing

the “Aggies” reveals that the northern i
trackmen are shivering in their spikes |

The surprise of the day came in the
sprints; first, when Oscar Gorezky, ran
off from Kadderly in the century dash
with Peacock at his elbow. Gorezky’s
comp-vnck is note-worthy. Three years
ago he entered Hayward’s fold with a
scintillating record of track prowers at
Colombia “prep.” Before ho entered
Oregon, however, he was laid on the shelf
with typhoid fever. From that time,
three years ago, until the Friday meet,
he never approached his scholastic status.
His debut came a« a result of a consistent
three-year grind under Haywood. Pea

can be relied upon to give the Washing
ton sprinters, Stenstrum and Newton,
a rperry chnse in the shorter distances.
Chester Fee, with his usual versatil
ity was the stellar star in the “Aggie”
adventure, and will garner point from
Washington. Washington brags of a
pole-vaulter, who hns made somewhere
near1 a baker’s dozen of vertical feet, and
Fee has done the same stunt. What is
more Chet likes competition.
Muirhead tied Fee for points in the
“Aggie” meet and probably would have
gone better had he not fell down in high
jump. It looks as if “Moose” is devoting
too much attention to his “Tin Lizzie”
and its decorations. Muirhead, however,
will be in tip-top, condition and will go
after the northerners with a vengance.
“Cotton" Nelson, who holds the north
west record in the half, hns come back
strong after considerable sickness for the
past; two seasons. In the recent meet he
beat Coleman—one of O. A. C’s safe-bets
in the half, and will probably be in still
better trim in Seattle.
One of Oregon’s staTs is Leo Bost
wick, who has sailed to the front in
runs upwards of two miles. Bostwick
has not been headed this season and looks
good for anything up to the historical
.Sitaub had a little hard luck in a hard
quarter in which he worked nn effective
box but he could not rip the lead off
soon enough to do his best. Wilson is
showing up fine in the shorter events and
can be relied on for hard competition.
Bartlett is fust coming to the front in
the discuss in which he took second
against Cole, O. A. C.
Thing's look blue for Washington track
team when they meet Oregon on Denny
field next Saturday, the chief reason be
ing that the old alibib, the weather.
This factor, coupled with the fact that
Washington has ore of the worst tracks
in the west, not excepting high school
and grade school tracks, is to be blamed
for the poor condition of the team.
Newton and Stenstrom are both good
century men when in condition and aught
to win in both sprints. Stenstrom is
in the middle of m bnd slump just now
and needs at least; a week to get back
into shape. Newton is Tunning in good
Drummond and Newton are the quar
ter men, but they have not rounded into
shape in this everit yet and they mush
over Denny field’s tortuous trail in about
:52. With more time they should both
cut this down to ,:50 flat.
Captain Clyde ; is the old, reliable
Waterbary of the' outfit, and with the
new Swiss movement, which he has
adopted this year,I ho ought to have no
trouble in the mi lb and half-mile. Mac
Donald will bo hist running mate in thd
mile and Woodbridge in the half.
Knight and Gillson will probably ha
the entries in the 1220 hurdles and Gib
son will travel ovAr the high sticks. Al
though Knight has made fair time in tha
220 event, the time generally has been
slow in these events. The two-mile will
be taken care of by Dill and Corbett,
and they will be up against one of .tha
best two-milers on the const.
In the broad jump, Stuehell, Harris
and Fix have all b|i>en trying this method
of aerial navigation with more or less
success, principally the latter. Stuehell
and Ilurlburt in the pole vault have been
doing around eleven feet. This should be
compared with Stuchell’s mark of twelve
feet eight inches, [which he made about
this time Inst year.
Young, It. Smith, Sehively and Grant
will light it out fot] the right to represent
Washington in thp high jump. In the
weights Washington is weak. Anderson
is probably the bqst man in the javelin
and Bonnell, Coehynn, Murphy and Wirt
make up the rest of the weight squad.
Oregon will not have as many good
men as they had last year, but Chester
Fee and Muirhead tire about all they need
to beat an ordinary college track team.
Fee is one of the] best all around track
men in the country, having been rnted
as third best all round man at the San
Francisco games jnst summer. Ho is
equally good in the] track and field events
and is hard to bjsat with the weights.
Muirhead holds <fonst records in the
hurdles and can high jump over six
feet. Needless toisay, Oergon will have
other very good men on her team and res
gardless of the “b|?nr stories” which she
has sent out, it w|ould not be surprising
if she repeated hey last year’s stunt and
won the conference] title again—Washings
