Coach Wants Three Represen
tatives for Each Event;
Only Fiften Turn
ing Out.
Says Third Place Man Is Just as
Valuable to Team as
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
„“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.

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.
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

“Days That Make Us Happy Make Us
Wise" Masefield Writes.
John Masefield, famous English poet
and war lecturer, who was a guest of ,
Colonel Leader and addressed the people
of Eugene Thursday night, was enter- i
tained Thursday evening at dinner by
Sigma Chi. Other guests were Colonel
Leader, Sergeant Fairley of the ord
nance school, Major Couch, of the stu
dent battalion and Adjutant B> W. Allen,
of the University.
Masefield stated before leaving the
University that he had enjoyed his visit
at the University of Oregon more than 1
at any other place he had visited on hie
trip through the United States. In the (
Sigma Chi guest book he wrote: i
“The days that makes us happy make i

WIN FROM U. OF 0. 20-17
Maud Lombard and Grace Rugg at For
ward Star for Oregon; Team
Work Good.
O. A. 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.
Miss Catharine IV in slow acted as
referee for Oregon for the first half
and umpire for the second, and Miss
Laura Campbell acted as referee and
umpire for O. A. C. The O. A. C. team

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. -

The trenches at this point were about

blacked their faces and each wore a lit

themselves recognizable to each other.
They wanted l'Z prisoners, and so care

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

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. C. Saturday.

of the run-getting wopJ<J be too monoton

were charged up. One when Dunton

dropped a throw which had a Willam

when Sheehy fumbled a grounder. The

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

According to Frances Schenk, the water

a painted picture.
The costuming will be bandied accord
