Telegram Asking for 20 Men
to Go to Presidio May 15
Confirms Appointment
of Kanzier.
Selections Cannot Be Made
TTr,ril Instructions
A telegram asking that eligable men
from the University battalion be recom
mended up to 20 in number was re
ceived yesterday afternoon, practically
confirming the appointment of Captain
■Jacob Kanzier and making Oregon an
R. O. T. C.
Applications are now being taken
from students who wish to go to the
Presidio camp, May 15. A letter is
being sent by the war department stat
ing the qualifications necessary for the
applicant. Authorities here must await
these instructions before definite ap
pointments can be made, unless Colonel
Leader and Captain Kanzier, expected
to arrive on the campus late this even
ing or early tomorrow, have received
the instructions personally.
Men To Be Chosen Fram Upper Class.
It is understood here that the men
seeking to go to training camp must he
at least 20 years, 0 months old at the
time they enter, and will probably be
chosen only from the two upper classes
as these are the only classes paid under
R. O. T. C. regulations.
It is feit that the battalion officers
will be very careful in the recommenda
tions made for the camp. As one
officer here pointed out, the camps arc
raising in the general average of the
military knowledge possessed by the
entrants, because of sergeants, cor
porals from the national army and the
officers from old R. O. T. C.’s entering
these camps. Much depends upon Ore
gon’s showing at the first camp its men
attend, and it is possible that only
those who have shown good ability and
:aken practically all the military cours
es here, will be recommended.
Principal Aim Of R. 0. T. C. Attained.
Now that Oregon has been assigned
i quota for the May camp at Presidio,
the principal aim of the It. O. T. C.
las been attained, and confirmation of
the war board order will cause no fur

the Industrial Sendee and Equipment

of men and it has ben hard to carry

with which Dean Morton was connected
was a staff organization, serving about
20 different business firms, with a total
of 7000 employees, so he had an oppor

Edison Marshall Contest Decided; Lyle
McCroakey Wins Honorable
The first prize in the Edison Mar
shall contest, which has just been de
cided. was awarded to Mrs. Anna
1 Landsbury lteck for her story entitled
‘‘The Big Evidence.” Mrs. Heck is a
1 senior in the University and has writ
ten several stories for magazines. The
prize story which she handed in was
based upon authentic facts which had
been told to her of the operations of
a counterfeit gang and their conflict
with the secret service.
The second prize in the contest was
won by Victoria Case who came here
this year from Iteed College and is a
junior at the University. Her story en
| titled "Thursday At Five” was a story
| of the war. By a strange coincidence,
| Miss Case's brother, Robert Case, ex.
T9, who is now with the doth artillery
in France, won the first prize in the
same contest which was held last year.
Eleven stories were handed in for the
contest which closed at the end of the
second term. The judges Dr. E. >S.
Bates, Dean Eric W. Allen and Mrs.
George Rebec, owing to the wide dif
ferentiation in, the stories, found some
(difficulty in making a decision and only
decided upon the prize winning stories
Monday. The merit of the stories that
were handed in, was judged consider
ably higher than that of the stories that
1 were written last year.
The Edison Marshall short story con
test is to be an • annual affair. The
prizes of ten and five dollars for the
best and second best stories are awar
ded by Edison Marshall, ex-’lS, who has
had a number of stories published in
the American, The Saturday Evening
Post and other eastern magazines. Mr
Marshall’s purpose in offering the priz
es is to stimulate an interest in short
story writing among the students of
the University.

sixth game of the series by the seore

The Oregon team started off in fine
shape and would have made short work
of the contest if the seventh inning bad

ning the Aggies scored seven runs on
six bits, an error and a bit batter, up
to this point Ilerg had only allowed
two hits and while the Aggies had
gathered two runs they did not seem
to be in any way dangerous.
Dry Ball Supply Runs Out.
The pitchers were allowed the privi
lege of calling for a dry bull at any time,
but by the time the seventh frame' had

clear through nml it did little good to
try to dry it off. It rained through

unable to put any hop on his delivery.
The bearers of the orange and black
started another festivity in the ninth

Berg fanned (iurkey retiring the side.
The Oregon team seemed to be con
tented to get a few runs each inning
and to increase the batting averages at
the expense of Kruger. Bill Steers
led the lemon-yellow willow wielders

trips to the plate. The Y’arsity took to
Kruger’s slants like a duck takes to

Call me early, mother dear!
With the day of judgment a few
hours away, hopeful candidates, both
professional and otherwise, are shining
their shoes and pressing their finery in
preparation for the final conquest; their
faces crack with smiling, but its “on
with the dance” till tomorrow.
Strange groups collect on every
available corner and indulge in Solomon
like prophesies; overybody mixes with
everybody, and nobody cares. “Poli
tics!” is the slogan, and once more the
campaigning shows signs of winding up
with a blaze of glory. All comhines are
in working order and everybody has a
good chance to be satisfied.
Down to brass tacks was the ulti_
tnatum issued to the aspiring ones last
night, and pronto they become the per*
spiring ones—-searching through vocab
ularies, alas! too scant to express their
aims. Conservation and an attempt to
keep campus life in all its phases en
tirely normal were the outstanding char
acteristics of the numerous platforms,
and certainly there should be no slowing
up of the pulse of University life if it
is possible to carry out the almost con
certed aim of the candidates, regardless
of what office they are running for.

McAlister bridge
Portable War Structure Spans Stream
Near University Street; to Be
Left All Term.
The University battalion spent the
two-hour period today iri setting up I’ro
feasor E. II. McAlister’s portable bridge
across the mill race, at the point where
the race course curves at University
The bridge will remain there the rest
of the term and will afford passage
across the race to the acre of ground on
the other bank, owned by the Univer
sity. Here it is rumored some girls have
asked permission to put out a war gar
den. It is too late for anything but corn
and beans, Professor McAlister says, but
if any University girls want the land
to farm they are welcome to it.
The bridge will allow room for canoes
to pass under it, but one span will have
to be taken down for the canoe fete
Thursday evening. The distance between
the water and the bottom of the bridge
is but four feet, and this will not allow
sufficient room for the decorated floats.
