With Three Victories and Five
Defeats, Varsity Is Led
Only by Quintet
From 0. A. C.
1919 Prospects Brightened by
Possible Return of Five
First-Team Players.
When the final whistle sounded in the
Multnomah club gymnasium on last Sat
urday night, it not only marked the
close of that contest between the club
men and the Varsity, but also of tho
1918 season. The check-up of the va
rious fives shows that Oregon stands
in second place in the northwest confer
ence, with three wins and five defeats
to their credit. She is only topped by
the fast O. A. C. five, which has a per
fect record for the entire season.
Considering the lack of material to
work with, and the lateness in getting
started this year, ithe Varsity made a
fairly good record. At the first call
for recruits not a single letter man re
sponded, and an entirely new combina
tion had to be formed by Coach Hay
ward. Then when the season was just
beginning, the coach became ill, and
was unable 'to take over the quintet for
more than two weeks, during which time
practically no work was accomplished
However, when the coach was able to
again resume his activities, the squad
settled down into real hard work, and
fairly good results were accomplished.
Happy Over U. of W. Victory.
Great was the surprise and happiness
on the campus on last Thursday evening,
when word was received from Seattle
that the Varsity had been victorious in
the first contest with the University
of Washington quintet in the northern
meropolis. When time was called for
the end of the fray, the count stood 20
all, and a five-minute overtime period
was required to play off the tie. With

Photographic School Aim of
Architecture Student.
Training Would Qualify Him for
Commission; Allen Says
Chances Good.
Arthur Glenn Stanton, a senior in the
school of architecture, and president of
the architectural club, made applica
tion Saturday to the collegiate intelli
gence bureau, at Washington. D. C., for
an appointment to the photographic
training school.
While gathering un his references.
Captain Eric Allen telegraphed to Wash
ington to see what chance there was for
a consideration of the application, and
the return wire was very favorably, in
that they considered Stanton's qualifica
tions for photographic school satisfac
Should he be accepted. Stanton would
have to be inducted into the signal corps
as a private, after which he would be
sent to a photographic school. The
chances for a college man to get a com
mission are extremely good, according
to Captain Allen.
Stanton would probably be sent to
rhe training school at Cornell, where,
ufrer a five or six weeks* course, those
doing satisfactory work are given a
first or second lieutenant’s commission
and sent across to instruct in France.
The training involves mop making,
outlines fr un general observation, and
from flights in airplanes. An observer
goes up with every aviator and then
makes the map as seen from th air
Frederick Fritsch, assistant in the
school of architecture, is making appi
cation to be transferred from the base
hospital at Portland to the same divi
sion as Stanton. Si Simola had the same
offered him, but decided to take the ord
nance course.
Dean Lawrence, head of the school
of architecture, says that this is the best
division in which draftsmen and archi
tects may serve, as it not only gives
them a chance to use their training, but
gives them more instruction.
Smoked Glasses Needed
in Drafting Room.
Orange Hurts Eyes of Architect
ure Students: Committee
Is Appointed.
Sudden brilliancy in the drafting room
of the architecture building has caused
great disturbance among the students.
The brilliancy appeared Monday morn
ing in the form of startling orange
smocks, worn by Glenn Stanton and
Irving Smith, and since then students
have found drafting work impossible
without the aid of smoked glasses.
“We used this dye on our smocks,”
said Glenn Stanton, "to add a note of
color to the room. We are well pleased
with the result.”
Irving Smith says his motives were
entirely •‘Ilooverish,” for he declares
there will be no further need of electric
lights for evening work in the drafting
A committee of architecture students
is now busy devising ways and means
to cope with the new disturbance, as
many object to the continual use of
smoked glasses.

Samples of Umbrellas Received by Miss
Powers; Orders Taken.
Girls who were disappointed because
Women's League could not order the
Japanese umbrellas may now procure
them individually by seeing Florence
Powers, at the Delta Gamma House.
Miss Powers has received samples of
two types of rain sticks, one kind larger
than the other. The prices are $8.75 per
dozen and $15 per dozen respectively
and the freight charges are quite nominal
being $2.50 for 50 pounds.
Those which Miss Powers received
vere from Hilo and are dark blue, with
lighter colored figures. They are made
of oiled paper, are said to be quite dui
able and can be used as a protection from
both rain and sun. Women's League bad
planned to order the rain sticks having
the Oregon colors but found it impos
sible to secure them in such bright
shades without having them made ex
pressly for the University women.
1 Will Tell of Experiences in Gallipoli
Campaign. Is Said to Give Clear
Idea of Life at Front.
John Masefield, famous English poet,
will lecture for the benefit of the Red
Cross at Villard Hall, April 8, under the
auspices of the Association of the Col
legiate Alumnae. Mr. Masefield, who
was in the Gallipoli campaign, will tell
of his experiences in the war. Those
who have heard him lecture say that
he gives a remarkably clear idea of Ufa
Iat the front. He will lecture in the prin
cipal cities on the western coast.

Proposes Headquarters for
Graduates to Be in Wo

Editor of The Emerald: May I ask
you to give space to a few words, in
reply to an article appearing some weeks
ago? The article in question stated that
at a conference with the student body
president, the president of the senior
class, and members of a special me
morial committee, I withdrew my sug
gestion in regard to their putting their
memorial for our boys iu the war in the
Memorial Hall—or women's building.
AVe had a long and friendly confer
ence, going into all the merits of a
monument on the campus versus a spe
cial room for this purpose in the new
I tried to make it clear to this com
mittee that unless they could raise at
least $5000, they could not hope to put
anything on the campus to stand for
itself as a monument fitting the great
The proposai which was made to them
was that they put all they could raise
into a large room in the big Memorial
Hall, which we hope to have in three
years. This room would be called the
alumni room, and would serve a valu
able purpose in giving every former stu
dent who returned to the campus a
definite place to go and to meet old
friends. The idea is to make this a
large, beautiful room, fitted more to
the bastes and needs of men than of
women, with fireplace, large easy chairs,
and every convenience. It should have
an outside entrance, thus making it
readily accessible at all times for every
visitor. On the walls, in panels of
beautiful hand-lettering, could be the
names of all who had offered their lives
to the service of their country in this
crisis, with a special roll of honor for
those who died in the conflict.
I tried to impress upon the commit
tee that unless all our efforts are united
toward the one great memorial build
ing, we cannot hope to interest out
siders in it. And I do very earnestly
hope that the associated student body
and the senior class will sec fit to add
their fund to our slowly mounting one,
in order to give as soon as possible this
greatly needed building to the campus.
AA hat I did say to the committee was
this: that we must not in any sense
work at cross purposes. If they do not
care to give us assistance, I shall not

With Hayward III and Goreczky
in Next Ordnance Class
Victory Over 0. A. C.
Is Uncertain.
Wilson, Foster, Gilbert and
Warner Most Promising
Men Out.
With Coach Bill Hayward away on a
month's rest to refrain his strength, and
Oscar Goreczky, the only letter man in
| college signed up in the next ordnance
course, which will remove him from the
list of eligibles, the track outlook at
present is not one to call forth much
enthusiasm from college fandom.
The situation closely parallels that
of football this fall, except in the num
ber of men turning out. A scant dozen
candidates have shown up thus far tor
the Varsity, and but few of these have
I had such experience.
Goreczky has been in charge of the
men since Bill has been away, but when
the ordnance work begins, ho will have
little or no time to devote to the cinder
path. He will leave before any of the
meets are scheduled.
Burden on Foster.
The brunt of the work appears at
present to rest with “Hank” Foster,
sensational freshman sprinter from last
year, and Dow Wilson, whose special
ties are hurdles and sprints. Foster
has been out getting into condition for
the last two weeks, and is showing good
form even this early in the season. He
won the 220 in the Columbia meet last,
spring. Foster is a cinch for places
in the 100 and 220, and Bill may put
him in some other events also. Wilson
is in splendid trim from football and
basketball, and ought to make good in
hurdles, sprints and possibly high ami
broad jumps. Foster is a broad jumper,
Warren Gilbert is the only man out
for the shotput, and Ivan Warner is
leading candidate for the mile. Out
side of the above-mentioned men, the
squad is practically green. Tat Master
son. another 100 man. is undecided be
tween baseball and track.
Wants Everybody Out.
Goreczky especially urges all men who
are not taking part in athletics at pres
ent. to show up for track. Before he
left, Bill Hayward said, “Give me three
men in every event and we'll heat
O. A. C.”, and from Bill's past record.
Oregon men know he hns a habit of
making good on such statements.

Battalion May be Attached
to State Militia if Desired
Colonel Leader desires that men of
the battalion decide whether or not they
wish to become a part of the state
militia, thus being the first battaion and
regiment of a new Oregon guard. Col
onel Leader says there is some trouble
at present over the R. O. T. C\, but he
thinks all will come out favorably in a
few weeks. In the meantime he sug
gests that the battalion accept a place
in the state militia.
‘‘The work will not be changed by us
becoming a part of the militia," said
the colonel, before his military science
class Monday afternoon, “it will be just
the same thing, under a different name.
As a part of the militia the battalion
gets state recognition. We would re
ceive rifles and equipment, and money
would be given us for summer camp. I
would remain as your commander and
the work would remain the same. I
have spoken with the head of the draft
exemption board, and registered men will
be allowed to remain in the battalion.”
The colonel spoke of the precaution
a soldier should take in keeping himself
in condition for marching. “Thirty-five
steps to the minute means walking at
the rate of one mile an hour,” said Col
onel Leader. “Of course, when cross
ing bridges or other such structures,
the step is broken. In fording streams
order company front and have the men
hold hands, for some of the men may |
bo nearly exhausted by their heavy
“Singing is essential to the good
marching company. If you want to make
Fritz ‘peeved,’ sing the 'Hymn of Death’
or the latter part of ‘The Watch on
the Rhine.’ ”
The colonel explained the importance
of a soldier’s keeping his feet in good
condition. lie advised the men always
to wash them before a inarch, and if
possible, to obtain hot water and a
pinch of salt or alum. The nails should
be kept closely cut. Rub the feet with
grease or tallow, or with alcohol, if it
;s possible to obtain it. The blisters
could he pricked, but great care must
he taken in not destroying the skin.
“Many soldiers,” said the colonel, “do
not wear socks, or if they do, they
usually turn them wrong side out before
a hike, to keep the seams away from
their feet. Don’t start on a long march
with new boots. I have seen whole
companies come marching in with men
carrying their boots strapped over their
“Avoid allowing your men to drop
out during a march, unless they carry
a doctor's certificate concerning their
ailment. A battalion receives a bad
name when a half dozen or so drop out
during a march. The best soldiers
trudge along until they reach their des
Lo! The Poor Sophomore!
He Has Nothing on Mind.
Class Fails to Find Cause to Hold
Meeting—But It's Going
to Happen!
Nothing preys upon the mind of the
sophomore. The class has nothing to
worry about, nothing to do, nothing for
which to hold a meeting. But someone
has set aside Wednesday at 10 o’clock,
and announced a meeting to be held at
that time in Guild Hall—and the sopho
mores are going to meet.
As soon as the announcement of n
meeting came from someone, some place,
Ned Fowler, president, got down to a
business basis and appointed a com
mittee. Its personnel is Richard Avison,
chairman, Lyle McCroskey, and Curtis
(Peterson. The committee doesn’t know
what it is to do. Fowler doesn’t know
what it will do. But the committee is
appointed and the meeting is assured.
For a preliminary step, the committee
has announced that the sophomore meet
ing will he behind closed doors, and
only members of the class will be inside.
Close on the heels of this comes an
S. O. S. for impromptu stunts, and with
this little glimpse, and with the latent
talent of the sophomores—the time is
already killed.
