MUCH COACHING REQUIRED Steady, Hary Grind Needed to Put Men in Shape for 0. A. C. Meet. Things began to come to life on Kin caid field yesterday afternoon when about thirty Varsity candidates and as many freshmen turned out for track for the first real workout of the year. The majority of the men are inexpe rienced and have everything to learn, but if decent weather continues a good team should be rounded out be fore the meet with O. A. C. on May 4th, according to Moose Muirhead, who has taken over the coaching of the men in the absence of Bill Hay ward. “While the number out today is much larger than that of the first part of the week, it is not large yet. Remember there should be three men for every event and not three events for every man, as it is at pres ent. Every man in school that thinks he can run or place in the weights should be out,’’ says Muirhead. Hayward left yesterday for his farm after a couple of days on the campus and in all probability will not be back for a week or ten days. Hurdlers and Jumpers Needed. Mulrhead lias been out on the field only three days, and as last night was his first night in command he has had little chance to get a line on the ability of any of the men as yet. Men are needed and needed badly, accord ing to “Moose,” for the high jump and the hurdles. A hard, steady grind from now on is the only thing that ean bring the men into condition for the Aggie meet, according to Hay ward, and Muirhead, in the two weeks or so that he will spend on the cam pus, is facing a gigantic task in try ing to get the fellows into shape. While it is a little early to get any dope on any of the fellows and as those who have just started to turn out have had no opportunity to show what they can do, some of the men are coming along fine and should be able to grab a few points in their re spective events. Runquist is show ing up to advantage in the shot-put, and is rapidly rounding into form in the other weights. It is probable that he will enter in the discus and jave lin events. Gilbert is also out for the weights and is spending most of his time with the shot-put, but will prob ably try the discus also. White and Wilson are tossing the javelin in fine fashion, and while they have not equalled any records they should im prove with proper training, says Muir head. Foster Looks Best in Jumps. Foster will be seen this spring in the broad jump as well as in the sprints, and so far he looks about the best bet in this event. In the pole vault Hill looks pretty good for the (Continued on page two) 12 Students Needed to Label Soldiers’ Books l|$Siranan Asks for Volunteers to Aid In Preparing Volumes for for Shipment. M. H. Douglass, librarian, wants about a dozen students to volunteer to spend an hour or two next Friday oi Saturday in pasting labels and pock ets in the books which are collected to send to soldiers. “It is a big job,’’ Mr. Douglass said, “but if a number of students help with the work it will help the library staff a great deal.” The books boxed ready for shipment were not labeled but all from now on will be. Two boxes of the collection were shipped yesterday to Camp Cody, where the citizens of Doming, New Mexico, have established a library for the soldiers at the cantonment with Rev. Edward Day, former pastor of the Unitarian church of Eugene, in charge. Mr. Day requested that Mr. Douglass send some of the books collected in the drive to his library. Frosh Baseball Squad Rounding into Shape Maison to Coach Team Until Called for Military Service—Three Games Arranged. -. Coach Walker reports that the fresh man baseball squad is rounding into good shape and is developing some good material for next year’s Varsity team. Jaeobberger, the only pitcher of the squad, is showing good form. Durno is doing good work behind the bat. The fielding is also good, accor ding to Walker, and the most drastic need now is for more efficient bat ting. Gamble and Durno are leading off the highest batting average but the team as a whole have not been able to locate the ball. “Fod” Maison has consented to coach the team for the remainder of his stay on the campus. He is daily expecting a call from military head quarters, but until then he will give his afternoons to coaching the team. The freshman team will probably have two games arranged with O. A. C. rooks and another with the Eugene High school before the close of the season. Maison reports that hereafter he will have the squad out at 3:30 in stead of 4:00 as heretofore, in order to give them as much coaching as pos sible before he leaves. Needs 100 More Subscribers to Produce Book. Two - day Campaign Brings Fifty Orders—Rest Must Be In by April 13. “The Oregana campaign on Wednes day and Thursday netted fifty more subscriptions, but the situation is still acute,” says Dwight Wilson, circula tion manager of the Oregana, edited by the class of 1919. “The book is ready for the press, but until there are one hundred more subscriptions the book planned cannot be published. “For the honor of the University the book must be published and it must go to the press free from debt,” he declares. “The students of the University want an Oregana that they can be proud to compare with the pub lications of other institutions. If more students don’t realize the seriousness of the situation and buy an Oregana the University will have to be adver tised throughout the state by a cheap and incomplete year book. “So far the percentage of subscrip tions has been unusually low and for the first time since an Oregana was edited the manager faces the possi bility of not being able to deliver the book during Junior Week-end. Fri day at the speeches of the ‘Order of the O’ men in front of the various' buildings there will be junior repre sentatives to ask each student whether he made his first payment and if not why not. There are six people on the campus who are officially taking sub scriptions, but if you fail to see one of these people or any of the junior representatives, call the manager at 660 and he will arrange to get your money. April IS is the last day. It is either now or never.” SCHOOLS WANT SPEAKERS Nine Schools to Have Faculty Members for Ccinmencement Addresses.

Professor Meets Oregon Men on His California Trip. Brings Greetings from Tregil gas, Dnndor and Stan An derson, in Service. Dr. R. M. Winger, professor of math ematics in the University, returned last Tuesday from his trip south, where he attended the San Francisco section of the American Mathemat ical Association, which met this year at Stanford University. Mr. Winger says that. although the convention was the attraction, he found plenty of time between sessions to make himself ac quainted with the many points of in terest about the Stanford campus. Seea Stanford Rally Arriving on the eve of the Stanford vs. U. of C. baseball game, ho had the good fortune of being present at the traditional “rally of the sacred axe,” which is always held in the large out door theater the evening before tho big game. “Tine crowd was enor mous,” ho said, “and the stunts were very clever, but the yell-R and singing wore not a bit better than ours, it seemed to me.” Mr. Winger went through tho avia tion school at Berkeley and also vis ited Camp Fremont, near Stanford. He was especially interested in the gun department of the aviation school. “I saw enough guns there,” he said, “to convince mo that tills country is not suffering from a gun shortage.” They had on hand a large supply of Lewis machine guns and another type of air gun which is maintained to he the most efficient air gun in the ser vice. 1VI I . vvniio in i tiiiiormu, ivj i. vviu^m quite unexpectedly ran across throe Oregon boys.

"I merely saw Dundore and Tregil gas and did not get to talk with them,” he said. “Tregilgas is in the medical division of the navy and is stationed at Goat Island. “The boys seemed glad to see some one from home, and sent a ‘hello’ to their Oregon friends." “Don’t think that these tilings de tracted from the Association meet ing. 1 enjoyed every minute of it.” Mr. Winger read three original papers to the assembly, and says that the hearty response which he received pleased him greatly.

RED MEN MAY SIVE 1 HP FIGHT Chemawa Coming Saturday for First Came of Season on Cemetery Ridge. ?f Diamond. FIRST OF HOME CONTESTS 1 Jattle of Southpaws Dtie, with Berg on Mound for f Oregon. j Fans will have their first opportu nity of seeing the Varsity baseball team in action Saturday afternoon, when tlie team lines up opposite the Chemawa Indian nine, which they re cently defeated at Salem by a score of 6 to 2. The game will be played on the Cemetery Itidge Held and will start at 2 o’clock. Despite the fact that the Varsity teasers were able to score a victory over the redmen in their recent tan gle at the Indian city, Captain Shee hy and others of the baseball world prophesy a hard fought game Satur day afternoon. Two flukes which went for home runs in the last game with the Indians were all that saved the score from being very close. Cap tain Sheeliy says that the Chemawa nine has a good pitcher and a fast and accurate infield. Should the Var sity men have a little “off day,” the redskins might turn the tables in the opinion of the men who viewed tlie bat-busting bee up Salem way last Saturday. Will Have to “Go.” “Evorv man on the Chemawa nine plays good ball and we’ll have to ‘go* every minute of the game to defeat them," is the way Captain Sheeliy sums up the situation. Art Derg will probably start, the bar rage from the Varsity mound Satur day. lie will have a chance to vie with a heaver of his kind, as the inoundman of Chemawa is also a southpaw. The rest of the Varsity lineup will bo the samo as it was for the games last weekj-endt “Chief” Wilson will he on hand ready to toss the hide after Berg lias had a session with it. The batting order of the team is as follows: Grebe, ss; Lind, lb; Medley, If; Steers, cf; Sheeliy (Continued on page two) | FIJIS HANDBALL CHAMPIONS Win Twice from Oregon Club—Final Scores 21 to 9 and 21 to 6.

Jimmie Sheohy and Herbert Hey wockI represented the Fijls and Spring er and Estes the Oregon club. The latter team was somewhat handi capped by the loss of Hartley, who was substituted by Estes. Much interest was centered in the I final games, as both teams consisted of exceptionally good players. It is predicted, however, that if Hartley had played the results would have been much closer, although, as it was the games were very interesting and caused a great deal of enthusiasm and interest among the handball players on tlio campus.
