VOL. 19. EUGENE, OREGON, TUESDAY, MARCH Emerald With Three Victories and Five Defeats, Varsity Is Led Only by Quintet From 0. A. C. FIVE MEN WIN OFFICIAL “0” 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 (Continued on page two) 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 tory. 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 plane. 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 room. 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.

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.

Proposes Headquarters for Graduates to Be in Wo man’s Building. By IRENE II. GERLINGER. 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 building. 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 occasion. 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 (Continued on page four) 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, too. 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. Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Fuguy-Oote, Gladys Van Nu.vs, Harold Young, of Portland and Miss Martha Spafford were Sunday dinner guests of Delta Delta Delta. 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 loads. “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 shoulders. “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 tination.” 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. “GIRLS ONLY” IS SLOGAN OF CO-ED LOTTERY DANCE Triple A Provides Stunts; Burlesque if Oregon Battalion in Review Is Feature. “Girls only,” wok the slogan of the all-co-ed lottery dance, given Saturday afternoon in the men's gymnasium, when 150 University women danced to the strains of “jazz” music provided by a girls at the piano. Under the auspices of Triple A, wo men's freshman organization, three stunts were given during the dance. A burlesque of the Oregon battalion, with Helen Manning ns Colonel Leader, and Dorothy Wootton, Arline Iloerr, Dorothy Dixon, Grace ltugg, Vivian Chandler, Lois Muey, Pauline Beals, Thelma Stan ton, Margaret Hamblin, and Doris Chur chill as privates, presented the “awkward squad” in review. Marion Gilstrap and Marion Ady ap peared in a vaudeville number, contain ing the songs, “I’d Feel at Home if They’d Lot Mo Join the Army,” and “It’s a Great Life if You Don’t Weaken.” Theodora Stoppenbach officiated ns minister at a negro revival meeting, with a congregation made up of Mando Barnes, Helen Watts, Beatrice Wether bee, Blanche Wilson, Betty Kessie, Vic Bice, Catharine Heilig, Lyle Bryson, and Beatrice Porteous. Futures of the meeting were several impromptu testi monies. Eleven dollars was cleared from the dance and the sale of ice cream, and will be donated to the Red Cross. Dean Elizabeth Fox and Mrs. W. F. G. Thatcher acted ns patronesses. OREGANA CONTEST STARTS Prizes Offered for Four Selling Largest Number of Year Books. The junior class will hold its meeting tomorrow at 10 o’clock in Oregon Hall. The chief business to come up will he the reports from the Junior Week-end committees, and the outline of the Ore gami circulating campaign by Dwight Wilson head of this department.

How ever, there are not enough steady after noon and Saturday jobs to supply the calls for work wanted by students. WHITER R.

McClure, an OWi gon alumnus, now in Francs with th» 20th infantry, M company, has written interesting sidelights on the conditions he has run np against in France, to Karl Onthanh, secretary to President Campbell. Captain McClure was an athlete of prominence during hia college course, and was the bright particular star in tha track world. His long suit was distance running. This won him a trip to Stock holm, Sweden, for participation in the last fnmous Olympic games held there, and likewise won him fame and victory there. He doesn’t say how Bill Hayward’i training is serving him when Frita sends across his big shells, but according to Major Beith, it onght to be working overtime.
