EUGENE, OREGON, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1917.
P. L. Campbell Expresses Ap
preciation of Cooperation in
FOR THEIR DEMOCRACY
Explains Need of Appropriation
as Anticipated When Mill
age Bill Passed.
The value of the departments to the
University, the need of additional dor
mitories, the appreciation of the student
help and interest in fighting for the
University and a review of Dr. S. P.
| .Cnpen’s report on the University, are
1. embodied in a message released this af
ternoon especially for the readers of the
Emerald by President P. L. Campbell, of
the University. The message follows:
“I wish to express my deep person
al appreciation of the hearty and loyal
cc.operation on the part of the students
of the University in extending a rousing
welcome to the members of the legisla
ture on the 'occasion of its recent visit
to the University. The students crowd
ing the floor and gallery of Villard and
overflowing into the corridors, constitut
ed in themselves the most effective ar
gument possible for generous support
of the University. The impression made
bn the visitors was full of power, and
will undoubtedly prove lasting. The
presentation of the students’ point of
view by the president of the student
body left nothing to be desired. It went
straight hom<> and carried conviction to
every legislator who heard it. The stu
dents of the University may well feel
a satisfaction in having given most ma
terial assistance in the campaign to se
cure the appropriations which the' Uni
versity so seriously needs.
“It will be possible for the students
to give still further help by making their
personal friends in the legislature un
derstand the University’s position. It is
simply asking for enough appropriation
to bring the income of the University up
to the level which was reasonably antici
pated at the time the millage bill passed.
Instead of increasing year by year, as
has been the case for a dozen or more
years before the passage of the millage
bill, the property valuation of the state
began steadily to df'dine under the pres
sure of hard times, and is at present less
by $75,518,430 than it was in 1013. This
means a cumulative loss of anticipated
income which by the end of 1918, the
dose of the next biennium, will amount
to considerably more than $150,000. It
is to make up this deficiency in part that
Y the appropriation of $100,000 is at pres
ent asked. Of this $100,000. $50,000 is
asked for general maintenance and $50.
000 for a woman’s dormitory. The addi
tional general maintenance will be seri
ously needed to help the University keep
pace with the rapid growth in enroll
ment, which has been fully 25.per cent
in the camous departments this year.
The increase in extension enrollment lias
teen many times as great. Now that the
University has passed the 1000 mark, the
high rate of increase will give a very
large number of additional students to
be eared for each year. The responsi
bilities are rapidly growing: it is of the
utmost importance that the income
should make a reasonably commensurate
“The alternative of cutting out de
partments of the University or of reduc
ing the number in the teaching force
ought not to be seriously considered at
a time when the departments are gain
ing with remarkable rapidity and the
largely increased enrollment will make
steadily increasing demands on every
member of the faculty. The departments
^ row established at the University were
assigned to it by the Board of Higher
Curricula after mature deliberation, and
with settled plans of the University's de
velopment in mind. The report made on
the University in 1015 by Dr. S. P. Ca
pen, representing the United States bu
reau of Education, specifically justifies
the maintenance of all the departments
at present established, and argues that
they he given abundant equipment and
ample teaching force. A department of
commerce of University grade was es
pecially recommended in a state having
the great trade outlook of Oregon.
“Tlie need of additional dormitories at
the University, under the present con
ditions of rapid growth, is only too clenr
ly evident. A combined system of dor
mitories and fraternity houses will in all
probability at the University of Ore
gon. as in most of the other state uni
versities, prove the most practicable and
satisfactory program of providing for
student living. The fraternities as they
ere organized and conducted at the Uni
, versity of Oregon are of very great help
in solving the living problem, but the
lumber can never be large enough to

VHSmr TO MEET
W. S. C. THURSDAY
Champion Washington State
Team Comes Fresh From
“We’re Coming Stronger Every
Day. We May Spring a Sur
prise Soon,” Says Bez.
With the departure of the University
of Washington five, basketball will rest
until Thursday afternoon. The champion
W. S. C. team, fresh from its California
invasion, will meet the Varsity in its
only appearance of the year.
Saturdays 33 to 16 win by the Seattle
ites marked the eighth sword stab in the
lemon-yellow’s much torn side. To date
they have been tumble to win a single
game, which is an unheard of thing in
any sport in Oregon’s athletic history.
The final Washington game was a rep
etition of Friday’s encounter. Captain
Oavidson started his substitutes along
with three regulars. Bezdek’s men start
ed off with a rush and had an early lead
before the invaders put in their full
strength. McCready got away from
Faulk on two occasions and dropped in
as many markets. Hollis Huntington, af
j ter going scoreless in the first game,
came to life and put in the first of his
four field baskets.
Once the Washington team got under
way they left little doubt as to who
would be returned the winner. Davidson
as usual showed enough scoring ability
to defeat the varsity single handed. *He
tagged four field baskets in the first
half and converted five out of seven
tries from the foul line. Cate and Mc
Cready took turns at foul throwing but
missed all five elmnees to register.
All the old faults of the lemon yellow
tropped out in the game. Experience
alone explains the fact that they failed
utterly to advance the ball and break
loose from their guards.
Washington was far from a smooth
v'orking combination. Their whole of
fense is built around Davidson, who is a
leal star. However, their passing and
floor work at times was excelled by the
Varsity. They played the old game of
lying back, then breaking loose from
the Oregon guards only to receive a long
pass from the far end of the hall. They
repeated this time and again and found
the hoop on nearly every try.
Bezdek is far from downhearted de
spite the team’s showing in the games
to date. “We’re coming stronger every
day,” said Bez in reviewing the past de
feats. “If I had another month I could
get the team going. The boys are inex
perienced but are coming fast. We may
spring a surprise next Thursday.”
Washington State college ought to fur
nish the fans " with some real treats.
They play the kind of a game that ap
peals to the spectators. Most of their
shooting is done from the middle of the
Boor. Forward Price and Center Boh
ler have been the big guns in the pre
vious games. Thpir ability to work
smoothly and at the same time rough
^'hen the occasion demands is well known
by local followers of the indoor game.
Two years ago they tangled with Oregon
and before the second half a general
free-for-all fight displaced any signs of
a basketball game.
Thursday’s game is scheduled at 4
sharp. Either Milliken of Eugene or
Bottsford of Portland will handle the

GO ON STAGE IN MEDFORD
Four Plays Under Consideration for Pro
duction by Mask and Buskin.
The Medford Drama league has ex
tended an invitation to the Mask and
Buskin chapter of A. TT. P. to bring a lo
cal play to Medford about the first of
March. The Drama league will pay all
the expenses of the cast and entertain
them during their stay in the city.
Mask and Buskin voted to accept the
invitation and Dr. IC. S. Bates has been
authorized to make all arrangements.
The play will go to Medford on a Satur
day night and a performance Will he giv
en in Eugene the Friday before the trip.
As the Drama league has asked for
a piny of distinct literary merit this
will necessarily narrow the choice. The
1 lays under consideration are four in
number, one by a member of the fac
ulty and three by students. Mrs. Bar
sons has a problem play called “Beal
Things” which Mask and Buskin wishes
to secure. The three student plays are
"The Patriot,” by Leslie Blades; “Sto
phany Steps Out,” by Bess Column, and
“The Unwomanly Woman,” by Celia 1 la
gar. These plays were all written in Dr.
Bates’ advanced play writing course.
As the date of production Ts only three
weeks away, rehearsals will begin im
mediately. Earl Fleisehmnnn and Charles

Up to four o'clock Yesterday after
noon ten reinstatement petitions had
been filed for the consideration of the
board of deans today. It is generally un
derstood that reinstatement will be more
difficult than before on account of the
general raise in scholarship standards.
The percentage of failures this year is
more than in years before. Last year
twenty-five failed with 7'd1 registered,
while in 1111.1 the per centage was slight
ly larger; twenty-five failed with the

The increase in failures is attributed
to the greater demands which are being

Campbell gave out the following state
"The deepest grief is felt at the Uni
versity at the news of Mr. Goodrich’s
death. We had known that he was seri
