Was Awarded Nobel Prize in t 1913 for Literary Accom plishment. I1 Rabindranath Tagore, the great Hindu jOoet, psychologist and lyric, whose first production of genius eminated from the 'far-away, mystic land of oriental East i few years ago, will be in Eugene Thursday evening and will speak at Vil ^nrd hall. It was due to the strenuous [efforts of the associated students of the (University assisted by the Collegiate [Alumnae association and the Fortnightly plub of Eugene that the Bengali mystic tigreed to appear here. His lecture in Eugene will be one of only 33 which ho bvill make in the whole United States. < Tagore will come under the auspices Ijf the associated student body with the feo-operation of the fortnightly club, the Collegiate alumnae association and t lie •University of Oregon. Nicholas Jaure ^uy, president of the associated student >jody. has selected a committee to take .•harge of all arrangements pertaining \o the lecture. The members of this committee are: Rosalind Bates, Stanley katon, De Witt Gilbert, Martha Beer, Ed Harwood, chairman. ! General admission to the lecture will jie 50c and student admissiun 25c.| In yiew of the fact that seats for the [Tagore lecture in Portland Tuesday evening are selling for $1.50, local peo ple are justified in feeling that the poet’s (late here is a real favor. I: Rabindranath Tagore was awarded the gioble prize for literary accomplishment Bn 1913, and since then, the great genius if the East has been welcomed in the West by a chorus of applause. He has lieen exalted to a place of prominence in ihe United States during the past four years. His prose has been eagerly de voured, his philosophy digested and the subtle simplicity of his poems and songs *ias won a place of real favor wherever lhey are known. 1 Although the subject of Tagore’s lec ture here Thursday evening has not been given out, it is certain that his talk Jvill hold the audience in an undivided ^ ,mit of interest, as has been the case elsewhere. His very personality of mysticism commands attention. The psychological novel “Gora” and "he mystic “The King of the Dark Cham ber,” are perhaps among the best known if his works. In his native land, Tagore is known jis the Shakespeare of the East. By jiterary critics it is thought almost in credible that his plays are so readily ae- | yepted by the West. Their popularity is | argely due to their metaphysical quality I |ind peculiar subtlety, l The poet has spent the most of his Tfe in India, where he was born in 1801, working for the upliftment of his peo ple. > He holds a chair as doctor of litera :ure at the University of Calcutta in livhich city he was born in 1861. He is . the son of Mahurshi Debendra Nath 'Tagore and the grandson of Prince jDwarkanath Tagore of India, not fcd personages in their native land.

Alumnae Board Believes Wo men's Fraternities Endeav oring Fair Rushing SECRETARY’S STATEMENT. The Pan-Hellenic alumni board held five regular and three special meet ings between September 12 and 211. The board during this time discuss ed and investigated approximately 25 charges of broken Pan-Hellenic local compact and in only two cases did the charge prove well founded. The alumni board recommended penalties in these two cases and the penalties were inflicted by the Uni versity of Oregon Pan-Hellenic as sociation as follows. Chi Omega was deprived of three rushing dates Wednesday morning September 13, through breaking the pledge day rule as a consequence of a misinterpetation of by law eight in the constitution of the Oregon Pan Hellenic which says, “The term fresh man applies to any newly matricul ated student.” A student of sopho more standing was pledged by that fraternity before pledge day in the belief that she was not newly matri culated as she had been last year matriculated at Heed College. The lack of intentional infringment of the rules was patent through their im mediate announcement of the pledging and the penalty inflicted was in con sequence not severe. Gamma Phi Beta was deprived of the privelege of rushing or bid ding (sisters excepted and Infrequent entertainment of non-fraternitv col lege women permitted) fropi now un til commencement week through 'breaking rule five, section B of the copact which reads, “After 11:30 Fri day no fraternity woman Shall com municate with a 'ushee untfil her bid is answered.” A Gamma IJ’hi alumni accompanied by an active member reached the room of a rushee shortly after 11:30 p. m. Friday night and stayed for some minutes talking to her after the head of her house had informed her of the hour.j As the compact states that each fraternity shall be held responsible for the ac tions of individual members, active and alumni, the entiri chapter suf fers the penalty. (Signed,) | 0 MRS. ERIC 4LLEX, Chairman of the Alumni Board. The alumni board. which has been meeting every day for the past week, after an impartial hearing of the charge against Gamma Phi Beta, handed in the above decision at 4 o’clock Thursday. The penalty was inflicted by the Uni versity Pan-Hellenic association and will go into effect immediately, i The infringement of the rushing rules occurred Friday, night, September 15, when Kate Stanfield, an : alumna of Gamma Phi Beta, and Sarah Barker, a junior, called on Elsie fitzmaurice, a freshman, after eleven thi'rty o’clock. Miss McKenzie had left the chapter house before eleven o'clock and did not realize the lateness of the hour when she made her call. The alleged reason for her visit was to deliver a message to Miss Fitzmaurice from mutual friends in Portland. When Helen Johns, head k>f the fra ternity, discovered the absence of Miss Stanfield and Miss Barker sjhe immedi ately followed them to the residence of Miss Fitzmaurice and warned them of the lateness of the hour. It was then after 11 :.’50 o'clock. The offense was discovered shortly after midnight the same evening when Mrs. Allen, on the trnck of another broken ruling had occasion to call on Miss Fitzmaurice. Miss fitzmaurice mentioned the call of the Gamma I’hl Betas and the charge was Immediately taken up. Besides the two charges Just cited there were twenty-five other re ports of violated rushing rules Investi gated by the alumni board, All of them were found to lie groundless “The unanimous conviction of the alummie board is that belief hi unfair methods of rushing charged1 to various womens fraternities in pastl years has --— |—— (Continued on ga§e fgur) BEZDEK GIVES CREW STRENUOUS WORKOUT Polishing Process Initiated Al though Stiff Work Continues. Spellman and Tuerck Still on Hospital List; Parsons Due Tonight. Jimmy Sheehy. When it comes to hulldoging “steers” and riding the "Kicking horses,” the Pendleton buckeroes have nothing on the nightly gyrations of Hugo Bezdek and his outfit. So strenuous have the work outs been that several of the boys re sorted to “pulling leather” to retain their equilibrium. Bezdek is still dishing out three squares of conditioning potions. Block ing, kicking, tackling, and falling on the ball continues to get the brunt of the attention. Coupled with these funda mentals. Czar Be/, has initiated the first of the finishing off, and toning up pro cesses. Not a detail of team organiza tion has gone unnoticed. Such rudiments as lining up for the kickoff, charging with the kick, and using the hands in getting by opponents, form the texts for but a few of the Coach’s many lec tures. A disappointing feature of this week’s practice was the Spellman and Tuerck, of the hospital list, are still nursing their bruises and will be unable to get into scrimmage for sora.'. t'w . Spellman, his shoulder swathed in adhesive and band ages, has done little mote than fobow the varsity in signal drill. An x-ray pic ture taken during the early par: of the week discounted any hopes of a sprain and revealed a serious fracture. Tuerek’s ailment is torn ligaments instead of broken arches as previously reported It is doubtful if he will be able to scrim mage for over a fortnight. In lieu of the cripples and Johnny Beckett’s recent sickness, fandom has focused its optics on the efforrs of several second—stringers to break into the black type. Since Tuerek’s incapaci tation, Bezdek has been working on Ray Couch to fit him for a backfield berth. Although small in stature, and handi capped by his lack of poundage, iie is making i; fine showing in the nightly scrimmage battles. Couch is a scrap;) ;r from the ground up and the lemon-yel low fans are pulling for him to make his letter this year. Roly-poly Skidmore, last year’s human tackling dummy, and Carl Nelson, buck ed their way during-the week to a place on the training table. The former, al though never considered seriously as varsity material, has b.■•►seined out of late and is learning fast. Nelson lias the build to make an ideal half or end, having played the latter position on a Chicago prep school eleven. Johnny Parsons is due to arrive in Eu gene this evening and will report for duty Monday afternoon. If lie is the Parsons of old he will have little difficulty in stepping into a halfback job. In Shy Huntington, Monteith, and Parsons the varsity will have three of the best ground-gainers and defensive backs in the conference. Bill Tuerck, with a year's experience under Bezdok, h." first call on the fullback job providing he can get his under-pinings in shape to stand the long seasons grind. llo'Ms Huntington, Couch, and Jenson will uo doubt he groomed to step into backfield berths when the occasion demands. Looking around at the other gridiron emporiums one finds every eleven busy toiling r.way at pre-seeson stunts. Lone star Dietz, who piloted the famous VV. S. C. team through a season of success es last year, is again at the helm. Al though the starters turned out for the first time last Tuesday, some 40 men were on hand to uphold the maroon and gray. With an array of old men back Diet* expects to repent his last year's performance. Coach Plpnl, the new O. A, C, mentor, Is busy with a largo squad uud Is sending out weekly wallings con cerning a shortage of tried material. ''California Is 100 per cent stronger today than she was at this time last year,” quotes a reporter on the Dally Californian, after the blue and gold had decisively whipped the Olympic club lifi to 0 last Muturdny, Evidently Oregon will face a far different team In Novem ber than that which Doble unmerci fully whaled last year. HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF i# * * * FlftOSH AGAIN MAR SENIOR # « # « BENCH; FUTURE GLOOMY ‘Armed with dutch cleanser, rags, scrub brushes, and gasoline, fifteen frosh in dustriously, furiously, and at times pro fanely, rubbed, scrubbed, scratched, and otherwise attempted to eradicate a large green ‘20” which indecorously, improp erly, and contrary to the asthetic sense and humor of the mustachcd Seniors decorated the senior bench and Sun Dial on the campus this morning. !It must be that the green lid which eoveret’u the dome of the irosh even .'.s tlv' big “O” hideth the outline o£ Skin ne,rs butte, effects that part of the anatomy knows, is the brain and eauseth hij! eye to see harmony only in the emerald stain and turneth his hand to wi|>rks of art. Be that as it may, they ha,ve done it again. [Swift as was the punishment visited upon the present sophomores last year bjt the irate seniors under the direction of Merlin Batle.v erstwile yell leader, songster, and Prexy of 1916. even more glSomy appears the outlook for the com fort of the frosh this day. Mr. Pres. Hawkshnw Geary of the senior class viewed the scene of rampage this morn ing with stern countenance and glowing e.\jO but made no comment. In the hum ble opinion of a happy soph, the frosh will long remember and cherish this dry aild tell the future green lidders with a tvlisted smile that it was one of the best dfj.vs of his freshman year. Now, to forecast and predict the fu ture for the entertainment of the Co eds. It is evening. The frosh are gath ered from all corners of the campus, aiid formed in line under the careful r-;ida a t of the upperclassman. With pants o. • high and reluctantly chanting “ l; i iah Oregon” the frosh are -oarc* e<,l quickly to the damaged portions *->< view again their work of the wee small Ilnurs. They pass before the senior bench with head bent low in reverence while some sturdy senior perforins the ceremony known as the “laying on of hands.” They serpentine onward to the historic mill race which has quenched many times the fires of adolescent youth. Its smooth surface is soon a scene of turmoil. The frosh are penitent and wish to show the seniors the extent of tl’eir grief. They disperse. Another dny passes. Noon comes and while the satisfied upordassmen and sophomores enjoy a snmptmis repast, the frosh still clamor for space at the mantel. CHET FEE TAKES SECOND i Last Year’s Track Captain Out of Con dition; Loses in Two Summer Meets. "Chet, Fee, Oregon’s track captain last your, took part in two meets this sum mer, one at San Diego, the other in New Jersey. Fee was evidently out of condition ns his performances were not aii good as at Oregon. At Sun Diego in the western cham pionships, representing the Multnomah club, he took second in the javelin. Liversedge of the University of Cali fornia grabbed first with a heave of llfdl feet and seven inches. Fee has bet tered this mark many times while at college. .Coach Hayward received a letter from Fee when he was on his way back to New Jersey to enter the national cham pionships there in which Fee said he was not in shape. He did m*t place in any event as his name was not men tioned in the summary. The pole vault was won at 12 feet nine and the javelin with n throw of 190 feet six inches. Both of these marks beat Fee’s best work. I\EW SECRETARY CHOSEN mVs. Edmunson Resigns Portion of Aot Ing Seorotary of Campus Y. W. C. A. Mr*. C. H.

First Student Rally of the Year Will Be Held in Villard Hall. g OREGON SPIRIT EXPECTED TO PLAY GREAT BIG PART Speeches Scheduled; Team Will Be Present; Yells Will Be ^ Lead to Awaken Zaz. ^ (By Harry Crain) i Pep! We’ve got it in abundance but— it needs to be exercised. Hence, the fiist student body rally of the year, ia Vil lard hall next IVednesday morning, at 10:00 o’clock, the hour usually devoted to assembly. * In announcing the rally yesterday af ternoon President Nicholas Jaureguy al so stated that the details of the affair had yet to be arranged. Hd.vsyc., l.e promises a spontaneous demonstru.ion of the Oregon apirit, for nmon” otoer things Coach Beatdek will make it l.r.own that we have “a grand old state,” a new feature on which the Wednesday rally committee has secured exclusive rights. 4 "Bill” Hayward is also billed to appear, but beyond this the personnel of the pep awakeners has not been decided. There will be representatives from the alumni, the Women’s League, each of the teams in debate, track, baseball, tennis, foot ball and other activities and, if aey dout’ take up the entire hour, there v.ll be more speeches, all of them red hot in their pertinence. “Who the yell leaders for Wednesday will be I do not know” said Jaureguy. “Good pep inspirers seem to be scarce this year and the committee will prob ably have some difficulty in deciding on the leaders foi* the first rally. The mccess of the rally will depend more ,i,)on the pep of the individual students ! .an on their lender and I want to im press upon the freshmen the importance of their knowing the songs and yells.’ While the Wisdnesdny assembly hour is scheduled ns the first student body meeting of the year and for the consider ation of student body business, only mat ters demanding immediate consideration will be brought up and these disposed of ns rapidly as possible to allow more time for the rally. If the band organiza tion can be reasonably perfected they will be there to furnish the noise, or rather part of it, as you sand you would be there with the rest. ENGLISH HOSPITAL SOON Freshman English Examinations Wars Given to Sava Confusion. The reason for giving the freshmen English examinations before allowing the candidates to file their study cards was to eliminate the confusion which has oc curred from some students being placed in two hour courses and some in three, declared Professor W. F. G. Thatcher, professor of Rhetoric. It is natural that a student does not wish to lose an hour after he has signed up for three hours in English and finds two weeks Inter that he will be required to take only one. It means that he must either register i^i another one hour sub ject after the recitations had started or content himself with what he has left. “The new plan was fine, theoretically”, said Professor Thacher yesterday, “But I fear that it did hot give the student a fair chance ns it necessarily had to be con ducted very hastily.” Professor Thacher said that he knew of several students in three hour courses who were now doing w'ork that would warrant their being in a two hour course. The English hospital which is conducted for the benefit of upper classmen who need work in English will be started the second semester.
