Oregon took the first of the series of
two games from the University of Wash
ington. at Seattle Thursday evening,
by a score of 23 to 22, after five min
utes’ overtime had been played. The
game ended 20 to 22, so an extra period
of five minutes was decided upon, dur
ing which Oregon managed to score 3
points to Washington’s 2.
Bill Steers threw the winning basket
just as the whistle blew, ending the con
test. The first half ended with the
score 12 to 10 in favor of Coach Hunt’s
In the second half, Oregon speeded up
and scored 10 points to the S gathered

Washington, tossed 12 fouls during the
course of the evening. He was in far
better shape than when the teams met
The second game of the series was
played last night, after which the team
left for Portland, where they meet the
fast Multnomah Athletic club squad in
a return game. The series with the
University of Washington closes the in

northwest conference.
Senior Chosen to Help in Dramatic In
terpretation Classes of the
Charlotte Banfield, ’IS, has been
chosen as assistant in the University
classes of dramatic interpretation. Miss
Banfield, who succeeds Mrs. J. F.
Thorne, was selected by Professor A.
F. Reddie, head of the department, aft
er he had searched through the east,
as well as through the state, for »n
assistant. Mrs. Thorne resigned so^e
time ago. to take up work in Portland.
‘'The department seems to demand
some one who is a graduate of the Uni
versity, and who understands the dra
matic situation here and in the state,”
said Professor Reddie. “I looked in
Portland and in the east, but could find
no one as capable as Miss Banfield.”
Miss Banfield has a reader's diploma
from the Gillespie School of Expression
in Portland, and a professional diploma
from Mrs. Gillespie, which she received
upon the completion of a post-graduate
course. She has had professional ex
perience in full evening programs of
interpretative reading. She registered
in the University two and one-half years
ago, and has been a major in Mr. Reddie's
department for the last two years.
The duties that Miss Banfield will
have as assistant have not ns yet been
decided. She will probably conduct all
classes in Mr. Reddie’s absence. She
will help in the coaching of plays and
in conferences with major students in
the department.
Sam Bullock, ex-18, Member of Class,
Writes of Success From
Camp Dodge.
Sam Bullock, ex ’IS, a member of
the first ordnance class at tre Univer
sity lost fall, writes Karl Onthank,
alumni secretary, giving the correct ad
dresses of 20 of the members of his class
in ordnance who are now stationed with
him at Camp Dodge, la. The letter
reveals the fact that every one of the
20 at Camp Dodge are either corporals
or sergeants. Bullock is a sergeant,
first rank.
After completing the six weeks’
course at the University last November,
the 50 members of the class were sent
to San Antonio, Tex., for a further
training course of six weeks in the gov
ernment arsenal at that placet. From
San Antonio the men were sent to
various camps for active duty.
Bullock says that the men have been
instructed to give their addresses as
A. O. B. D. in France, as they are like
ly to leave at any time now. Bullock’s
address now is Company C, Second Bat
talion, A. O. B. D. in France, Camp
Dodge, la.
University Battalion Soon to Get Ord
nance—Rifle Club Clash Nears.
William Bebee has received word from
the government that the embargo on
sending rifles and equipment to private
citizens will be lifted in a few weeks.
This will mean, he said, that the men
of the University battalion can then be
furnished with regular army rifles.
“As soon as the embargo is lifted,’’
he said, “they will notify me by tele
graph from Washington, and we will
send in the names of the men. and guns
and ammunition will be sent.”
The Rifle club’s first meet will be
held in two weeks with the Springfield
club. Mr. Rebec said. The local team
is not showing as good form as he
would desire, he said, but added that he
expected by the time the meet cane off
they would show marked improvement.
“We don’t want to let Springfield down
us the first thing,” he said.
Program to Be Up to Standard; Gold

The University men's glee club will
soon be getting into action again. Prac
tices will begin aoon for the annual con
cert in Eugene, and as this is scheduled

Telegram Received From Miss
Mabel Cratty Agreeing to
Six Months’ Stay
in France.
Leave of Absence to Extend
From First of April to
Dean Elizabeth Fox received a ■tele
gram yesterday afternoon from Mabel
Cratty, national executive secretary of
the Young Women’s Christian Associa
tion, stating that her offer to go to
France for six months, will be accepted.
‘‘I am surely going,” said Dean Fox
yesterday, after receiving the telegram.
Dean Fox intends to leave the Uni
versity at the beginning of the third
term, and will sail for France about
the first of April. She will take a leave
of absence, and expects, according to
the present understanding, to return to
the campus next November.
When Dean Fox received the request
that she go to France to engage in war
work for the Y. W. C. A., she replied
that she would go for six months,
should her services be of value for only
that time; also that President P. L.
Campbell wins on his way to New York,
to attend a convention of the National
Education association, and he would con
fer writh Miss Cratty about the matter.
In the telegram that Dean Fox received
yesterday, Miss Cratty stated that, al
though she had not seen President
Campbell yet, the six months' offer
would be accepted.
Although Miss Fox has not heard
directly from President Campbell since
he left, she believes, from what he said
before he went to New York, that her
plans will be satisfactory.
Dean Fox thinks that her work in
France will be as a social secretary
among the Red Cross nurses at one of
the base hospitals.
115-Pounder Decides to Enter Ordnance
Course; Bruce Flegal to Take His
Place; Men Work Hard.
Oregon’s hopes to take the coming
wrestling meet with O. A. C. next week,
received a severe setback yesterday when
“Si” Simola definitely decided to enter
the ordnance course, and consequently
give up the mat game. This deprives Ed
Shockley of a good chance to take the
115-pound event, as from comparative
showings against the Washington light
weight, Simola appeared the favorite
over the O. A. C. grappler.
Bruce Flegal will take Simola’s place.
Flegal was a member of the team last
year, and gave a good account of him
self, although losing his match on two
decisions. Flegal has not been doing
much wrestling this year, and is not
iu the best of shape.
Shockley is putting his men through
strenuous workouts every night, to have
them in the best possible condition. All
of them are still somewhat overweight.
Library Receives Copies of Representa
tive American Verse.
Several copies of a pamphlet called,
“Representative American Poetry,” have
been received at the University library,
and may be had at the loan desk. The
pamphlet is edited by Braithewaite and
Schnittkind, and contains a number of
poems representative of the genuine
poetry which is being produced now.
Several of the names appearing in the
book are Edgar Lee Masters, Sara Tess
dale, Edith M. Thomas, Morris Rosen
feld, WilJa Sibert Cather, Helen Gray
Cone, and Harriet Prescott Spofford,
besides other poets less well known.
Expects to Enter Aviation Corps; Geary
and King in Texas.
Johnny Parsons, who is making ap
plication to enter the aviation corps, is
now stationed at Kelly Field, Tex. He
writes that Art Geary, TO, is studying
in the balloon school, and Dal King, a
former Oregon student, is a lieutenant
in charge of a recruit line at 'he sane

“Every girl who wants to try out for
the meet should hand in her name right
away, either to Miss Thompson or Miss
Winslow,” says Miss Moss. “We want
as many girls as possible to come out,
so that each class may have a good
showing. ( Those who are in the inter
class meet will have the best chance of
making the Varsity team if we swim
against O. A. C. next semester.”
Admittance to the intcrclass meet is
to be by invitation, and each girl parti
cipating will be allowed to invite a defi
nite number of people.

Coach Now With Pittsburg Club Thinks
Sammy’s Physique and Stature
Due to Game.
Hugo Bezdek has broken forth in a
new place.
This time he asserts that it’s nothing
less than the existence of that pet hobby
of his, baseball, that is responsible for
the superiority of the American soldier
both in physique and stature.
This claim was displayed in the Bos
ton Globe for February ‘J'J, the article
written by Robert Ripley, under illus
trative and decorative cartoons.
Nor does Bez's optimism stop there.
He goes right on to say that the de
terioration of the English, French, and
Italian physique is directly due to the
lack of some strenuous, systematic exer
cise. According to his version, the Eng
lish cricket is a cross between a village
gossip and a tea party; the French
fencing and cycling are wholly inade
quate and the Italian “boece,” or bowl
ing, is beyond the pale.
Now manager of the Pittsburg Na
tional league baseball team, Bez still
remains faithful to his first love, aud
toots the basebull horn consistently.
The story goes on to say that some
time ago a committee from the British
parliament was appointed to investigate
these very conditions, and found that
a lack of consistent and steady athletic
development in their country accounted
for the superiority of the American ath
letes in the famous Olympic games.
Companies Try Same Problem
Two Successive Days;
Original Errors
Drill Given in Advancing Under
Cover—Exposed Body of
Men Wiped Out.
Executing the problem of advancing
on a supposed enemy, located under
cover on the site of the field engineering
practice trenches, the University bat
talion at drill Thursday and Friday did
fairly good work the first day, but with
some conspicuous errors, and yesterday,
made an almost perfect advance. Can
tain E. W. Allen, of the battalion, and
Lieutenant Leslie Tooze, of the United
States army, who acted as umpires, give
high praise to the splendid improve
ment made by the battalion over the
first day's efforts.
Three companies constituting the fir
ing line, were arranged in a quarter
circle, with the crest near the pt actio*
trenches as a center. They were or
dered to advance in scattered squad
columns across the first zone, then de
ploying as skirmishers across the
swinmp, which constituted the second
zone, and when established on the firing
line, charge across the Inst zone to tbs
enemy. The problem, which consisted
in advancing successful and correctly
across the field, was given as an exer
cise in control through non-commissioned
officers, and was not intended as a
simulation of combat conditions.
Distribution of Companies.
Captain Rny Couch, in chnrge of the
battalion, wss ordered to distribute his
companies as follows: A company, on
Columbia between Seventeenth and Nine
teenth; C company, at Nineteenth and
Agate, and I) company, at Nineteenth
and Onyx. B company was to be held
in support at Nineteenth and Columbia
until the advance of the firing line was
well under way, and then sent in scat
tered squad columns, taking advantage
of all available cover, to the corner of
Eighteenth and Agate.
When the companies were success
fully established, the sham fight began.
In speaking of the first day’s battle,
Captain Allen said, “It was fairly good
in spots, but there was plenty of room
for improvement.”
D company was ruled out because in
