o Oregon Emerald VOL. 19. EUGENE, OREGON, SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 1918. NO. 66. Coach Wants Three Represen tatives for Each Event; Only Fiften Turn ing Out. ASKS,FOR OREGON SPIRIT AS WELL AS ATHLETES Says Third Place Man Is Just as Valuable to Team as First. More men for track—many more men. That is the plea of Coach Hayward, now in the Portland Surgical hospital, recovering from the effects of a recent operation, but worrying over the pros pects of the Oregon team in the north west meets of the coming season. Hayward asks for three men in every evemt, and he wants them to turn out now. “Now is the time that track meets are won or lost,’’ he says in a letter to a friend on the campus. At the pres ent time there are but 15 men turning out for track—scarcely enough to maKe up a team of but one man for each event. At least three times that num ber are needed, and with the appoint ment of Ray Couch as student manager of track, the campaign to get every available man out is going to be pushed every minute. Wants Willing Men. The call being issued is not neces sarily for track men. It is for Oregon men—men who, whether they nave ever done anything in the track line or not, are willing to get out and try. Hay ward wants the raw material on hand when he returns to take charge of the squad, and he wants them to be in con dition. Developing point winners is his job. „“Jt is very unfortunate fer me that I can't be with the boys for a while yet,” Hayward writes. “There is no one as anxious as I am to be on the job. and just as soon as the doctor says it is safe, you and the team cau depend upon my being there. “The fact that the team is handi (Continued on page three) Two Sections Already in Hands of Printers. Rest to Go as Soon as Ready; Campus Views to Appear in First Section. Two sections of the 1918 Oregana are in the hands of the printer, and tne rest of the book will be sent to him as fast as he can handle it. The engraving is nearly completed and some especially good pictures are promised. A dozen full-page views of the cam- | pus are in the first section. The fron tispiece is in three colors, and was drawn by Glenn Stanton, president of the architecture dub. All of the in serts are especially good, according to Helen Brenton. editor. The first thing in the military sec tion is a full page cut of Lieutenant Colonel John Leader, and is followed by an account of his life. Pictures of the Second company at Fort Stevens, com posed very largely of Oregon men, of the University ambulance company at American Lake, and of the company to which the University girls sent Christ mas candy, will all appear. The dramatic department is well ar ranged and quite complete, with more pictures than usual. by the Oregon chapter of the American as usual due to a slack season, but the pictures are very good and every sport is covered. As for features, information is sup pressed, but they will be of interest to every student at the University of Oregon. The junior pictures are larger than test year, and the list is very nearly complete. Oregon club has a full page picture as well as nearly every other organiza tion on the campus, so every member of the student body may expect to see him self in print somewhere in the book, j INTER-FRAT TRACK MEET PLANNED BY DEAN WALKER Inter-frat Track Meet. In order to get some enthusiasm I aroused for track, Walker is at present working out plans for an inter-frater nity track meet, to be held within the next two weeks. The athletic depart ment will offer a cup to the winning house, and it is hoped that some phe nomenal track men may be discovered at this meet. In order to keep any star from walk ing away with the contest, Walker in tends to use a new system of scoring. It will be necessary for each contest ing house to enter three men in each event, and the average of their time will be taken as the score in the event. This will assure every house an equal chance and will remove the possibility of one man carrying off. the honors. The track out on Kincaid is being I put into condition, and from now on, if the good weather continues, the men will start getting speed into their work. The track is being scraped and rolled, and should be in the very best of shape by the first of the week. OT TEIIS ITCH TO COME OFF SOON First Games Will Be Played Off by Wednesday. Tourna ment to Be Over in Two Weeks. Varsity Team Will Be Chosen From Champions; Lara way Offers Cup. Preparations for the woman’s cham pionship tennis tournament are going forward swiftly, under the management of Caroline Alexander and Adrienne lipping. The first rounds of the tourna ment will be played off before Wednes day next, and the subsequent refunds will probably be over in less than two weeks. At a meeting of the tennis club Thursday night, final arrangements were completed, and new business taken up. Seth Laraway Offers a Cup. The tournament is played by the 20 members of the tennis club, and any others that care to put in their names to the president, Adrienne Epping. The results of the tournament will decide the members of the University team. The winner of the tournament will play the games with O. A. C., Willamette, Multnomah club, and the Portland Irv ington club. A new ruling passed by the tennis club Thursday night pro vides that any players unsatisfied with the results of the tournament may have the right to challenge any member fit' the team within a week after the dose of the tournament, and take her place on the team, if successful in three .sets j out of five. By this means, the play ers hope to do away with the chance that always accompanies a tennis tour nament, and to secure the best players for the team. Doughnut Tournament Dropped. The election of Mrs. John Leader as an honorary member of the club was ratified by the members, and two new member* voted into the club.

C. girls' basket throwers won from U. of O. by a score of til) to 17 this afternoon, in a return game played in the men’s gymnasium, which was well filled with Oregon rooters. The game was nip and tuck from start to finish, with only one time out for the girls, who pulled up their bloomers and adjusted their ties on the run. O. A. C. forwards, Irene Brye and Gladys Johnson, were especially quick and accurate in their work, and they were ably guarded by Maud Lombard and Grace Rugg, for Oregon. Good team-work was apparent for botn teams, and the ball was tossed quickly several times from one goal to the other with out a slip. The first half started with two con secutive baskets for both teams, and then the score for O. A. C. mounted up to eight before Oregon could interfere. O. A. C. fouled and Maud Lombard threw the basket. At the end of the first half the scoro was 1(5 to 6 for O. A. C. Peggy Crim was substituted in the second half for Margaret Bailey, and did brilliant work at guard. The game warmed up in the second half, and this time the whistle blew to end the half just as Grace Rugg was poised to throw a basket.

These ;irls are fitting themselves to take positions left vacant by men, and ao :-ordi:ug to Professor Drueker will be prepared to fill such vacancies this summer. “I was greatly surprised,” said Pro fessor Drueker, “when I found that such a large number of young women rad enrolled in my course this term, rhe class is mare than twice as large is the one in the same subjeet last fall.” Among all these girls arc bat 10 men. \nd the girls show as much aptitude as ;he men in taking up fhe subjeet, ae lording to Professor Drueker.

Acland, oc the Toronto Highlanders, now, assistant commandant at Pullman, inspected the University battalion Thursday ana addressed Uni versity and townspeople in Villard hall ' Thursday evening. Major Aeland com plimented the battalion very highly on its work, and said that he was envious of such a turnout. “The University of Oregon should be proud of such a battalion," he said. “You have made wonderful progress in a short time. The work done here has been really remark able.” Major Aeland spoke or “Life in the Trenches” Thursday evening, describing conditions in the trenches and No Man’s Land, illustrating his remarks with de lightfully humorous stories straight from the men he has known intimately in trench warfare. Describes Trench Raid. One of the most interesting things he described was a raid on the German trenches for prisoners. The battalion of Itritis’h Columbia, to which Major Aclamid was attached, made the first raid of this kind on the western front. The Canadians wished certain informa tion from the Germans ns to just what division of the German forces was op posing them, and decided to try the daring feat of effecting a raid and ob taining information from identification marks on the prisoners. Th» raid was worked out in the most careful detail. A model of the section of the German trenches to be raided was constructed behind the Canadian lines, and here the ineu drilled for days, each being assigned to a particular duty, so that nothing should be left undone. The men worked together at night, learn ing each other’s ways in the dark, and soon gained confidence. - Black Faced Soldiers Go. The trenches at this point were about •WOO yards apart.

Seven University women's groups have been given places on the stunt pro gram for the annual April l<’rolic, to take place Saturday evening, April 20, in the men's gymnasium. Chi Omega has reserved the first place, and is followed by Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Hendricks Hall, l“i Beta Chi. and Alpha Phi. tfutaxiun and Woman's Athletic asso ciation ore the only organizations other than the sororities and dormitory whicn have signified any intention to appear in a stunt. "We excluded Triple A, Triple B, and Triple C this year," said Mildred Steinmetz, appointed by woman's league as general chairman for the affair, "la this way the program will be somewhat shortened. Kaeh stunt will last five minutes, and plans have been made to have two stages, one at each end of the hull, so that while one organization is putting on a stunt, the next on the program can be arranging a stage set ting." Kappa Alpha Theta, who announce that their stunt will be called "Hereto fore and Hereafter," are the first to announce a title. Miss Steiumetz hopes to get all the titles by the end of next week. Besides the entertainment offered by the stunts, a feature dance for every one will be a part of the dance pro gram. Janet Frasier, placed in charge of the event, says that she hopes to have the feature a novel one. According to Grace Ilamrnnrstrom, chairman of the decoration committee, greens and the Oregon colors will be used in some simple manner. GIRLSTOHAVEWAR GARDEN Hendricks Hall Residents to Sell Produce for Benefit of Red Cross. Hendricks hall is to have a war gar den. Two plots of ground, one an aefo just east of the trenches, are to he put in potatoes, another plot just north of the graveyard, will he planted in vege tables. Mrs. Edna P. Dotson, head of the physical plant of Hendricks hall, has offered to purchflso the products from the girls for use on the table, and the funds will he given to the Red Gross. H. M. Fisher, superintendent of grounds, gave the girls the ground and hrid the plowing done today ior them. Frances Elisabeth linker, a senior at the hall, has charge of the gardening, and according to her, the girls are en thusiastic and prospects for a rn>p are food. Parade-Serpentine Monday; Anything to Make Noise Bring out your old tin cans, pots and pans, cowbells, horns, screech whistles, a stray .tin roof or so, and anything else that will make real racket, fellows, and have the time of your lives mak ing all the noise you want to for once, Monday afternoon at 1 o'clock. So siys Slim Crandall, who will lead the swirling, serpentining, yelling mass of University boys down town during drill hour, to show the t«>wu that. Ore gon has the old fight and can outdo everyone else in making a splendid demonstration on national noise day. For you see, fellows, that while you are having a grand time making some real noise, you will be helping your country to win the war by s'/rring up pep for the Third Liberty Loan. That’s what Monday, the official noise day, is for. Absolutely every man in the Univer sity will be in the serpentine that will leave the gym at 1 (there will be roll call before, by the way), and noise, and noise only, will be the order of the hour. The more noise and the less harmonious it is, the more everyone will be satisfied. Fortunately the police force of Eugene will he in hiding, and every one of the spectatoors who will line the sidewalks will clamor for a genuine racket. “We’re going to show them wdiat we can do,” vows Slim, who is looking forward to noise day with the keenest satisfaction. All sor^ arid sizes of sound-produc ing instruments will he used. The coun ty tractor, with all the wagons attached behind, which makes such an agreeable grating, grinding, squeaky noise as it passes the library nearly every day, may be commandeered for the occasion. Slim is thinking also of gathering up some grand old circular saws, guaranteed to lull anyone to sleep with their music, uml by Monday (here will be most cer tainly a fearsome array of noise in* it uments. The University band is going along, too, in all its glory, and will stir the throngs to wildest enthusiasm with loud music. They nre keeping a secret what they are to play, but all their numbers will be rendered in a thoroughly original manner, and they sav, “We’re telling you they are to be good.’’ Most wonderful of all, it is an nounced authoritatively, that a prize (no one knows what, just yet, but a prize, anway), will be awarded to the individual who turns out with the most unique and peace-disturbing noise pro ducer. “Her is a fine chance,” says .Slim, “to show your originality. You cam bring anything you want, but it must make some NOISE.” “And what about the girls?” you ask. Well, they aren’t going to be in the serpentine, but surely every girl in the University will want to witness this greatest of all pep-feats in the history of the school. They may produce all the noise they wish from the sidewalks, for they will all follow the boys down town to the Southern Pacific station and back. Be thinking, girls, of what you are going to do in the way of noise, too. You can do quite a bit merely vocally, you know. Don’t forget. Everybody out Mondav at 1. And, above all, don't forget the motto—NOISE, OREGON NINE BEITS WILUMETTE. IS T01 Methodists Go Down Before Varsity in First Salem Game; Early Season Training Shows. Art Berg Pitches and Gives But One Hit; Steers Has Gala Day at the Bat. Salem, Ore.. April 5.—(Special to the Emerald.)—Oregon ran bases until the cow* came home in the first game of the season t\gainst Willamette Univer sity here this afternoon, on S/.eetland field. The lemon-yellow athlete^ ran up a total of 15 runs, 17 hits and & stolen bases, while Art Berg held the Metho dists to one rim and one hit. Oregon dearly showed the effects of early spring practice, and handled the ball much more clearly than their opponent*. Bill Steers htad a gala day at bat, getting five dean Mows, one of them ft double, in five trips to the plate. Grebe smashed out a triple, Lind a doa ble and Bunion a home run. Not an inning went by that the Varsity failed to take advantage of both in the run and hit columns. Each main on the team made at least one run and one hit. Art Berg was in rare form and bad « no-hit; game up to the sixth frame. Be sent six men hack to the bench via the fan-out route, but. spoiled his record with four walks and hitting three bat ters. Brewster, the first Willamette twirier, had little on the ball, and wag hit freely. He gave way in tihe fourth to Spiess, who fared- little better. Coach Mathews saved his best bet, Bimick, for O. A.

One when Dunton threw wild to second, again when Lind dropped a throw which had a Willam ette baserunroer trapped off base, and when Sheehy fumbled a grounder.

Mr. Redd in will appear as the Satyr. Other prominent part* are taken by Frances Frator, Margaret Croeby, Helm Braeht-Maurtce, Jo Driscoll, Heater Hurd, Ituth Young, Claire Gasley, Frances Schenk, Charlotte BaafiaM, and Xorvoll Thompson. Tbo play is full of intereating iad donta. There are four seta of lovera who, through a magic potion, became hopelessly involved, the right pair new seeming able to meat. At no time are there more than three people on the stage together. The sotting for this play promises to be the most elaborate of the year. The action takes place out of doors. There is to be a hillside covered with grass, a waterfall, and a brook in wbicfc the barefoot shepherdesses are to wade. According to Frances Schenk, the water fall is to be real running water, and not a painted picture. The costuming will be bandied accord ing to a new plan. Each of the actors will furnish his or her own costume, as costuming and makeup are a part of tha study of advanced student* in the department.
