Time of State Contest Tonight Is
Changed from 9 o'clock, When
Canoe Fete Set Ahead.
The Marshfield and Salem high school
debaters who are contesting for the state
championship, will meet tonight in Guild
hall at 7:30 o’clock instead of at 9
o'clock*, as was formerly anmLtnced. The
reason for (his is that the canoe fete
which was lo take place at 9 o’clock
has been postponed until 0:30, and will
thus give the students a chance to at
tend both events.
Those debating on the Marshfield team
taking the affirmative are Albert Pow
and Thelma Lyons. The Salem team
& composed cf Dewy Krobst and Phillips
The subject up for debate differs just
slightly from that used by the Varsity
team. It is. ‘ Resolved, That at the close
af the war the United States should join
s league of nations, with police power
to enforce the detrees of its interna
tional court.”
The winn'-r of the debate tonight will
be awarded the University of Oregon
cup. given to the victors in the state
nigh school league. For the last sis
fears it has rot gone twice to any high
school. In 1911-12 it was won by the
Albany high school team; in 1912-13 by
Vorth Bend; 1913-14 by Pendleton;
1914-13 by Salem; 1913-16 by Cooks
county hign school at Prineville, aud
last year :ae cup was won by the Jo
seph high school.

Write Miss Cummings Telling of Demon
strations Given at Close
of Year's Work.
Letters from University graduates,
who majored in physical education and
who are physical education instructors
Bow, have been coming to Miss Mabel
’Cummings, head of the University de
partment of physical education, telling
her of various demonstrations.
Louise Bailey, who is now instruct
ing in the Pendleton high school, tells
of her demonstration which was such a
success that she was asked to repeat
five numbers for the junior Red Cross
A era Moffat, who is instructing at
The Dalles, and Jewel Tozier, who is
in Portland, also tell of their demon,
strations winding up their year's work.
All of these girls are interested in re
construction work, and write frequently
to find what they can do to help in
this work.
Junior Catches West Irish Spirit
in One-Act Tragedy.
Production Is Received with
Enthusiasm by Members
of Dramatic Class.
Tracy Byers, of Eugene, a junior in
the dramatic interpretation class con
ducted by Prof. A. Reddie, put on Wed
nesday afternoon in Guild hall before the
class a one-act play which he had both
written and produced. The play, entitled
“The Warning of Norah Michael,” is a
drama of the Donegal coast. It carries
the superstitious dread of the elements
so characteristic of the simple fisherfolk
of that time and place. The play is built
around the fear of Nora Michael to let
her lover Dennis go out with his fishing
boat in the storm, since she has had a
premonition of death and has felt the
spirit of her dead mother hovering
around her. The surprise ending, in which
Nora is the one to meet a sudden death,
being struck by lightning just as her
lover returns safe to her. having heeded
her warning, gave a tragic thrill. The
play was not without its little comedy •
moments, which were not too strongly
emphasized to mar the essentiality som
bre and tragic tone of the production.
Scenic and lighting effects were carried
out with skill and finish; the lightning
looked real and the moaning of the wind
cast its spell over the student audience.
The part of Nora was taken, most
acceptably, by Ethel Waite; Tracy Byers
himself played Dennis, the fiancee, with
more than his usual effectiveness; Mar
ion Gilstrap made a delightfully mis
chievous if perhaps rather feminine Bar
ney, the neighbor's boy, and Delilah Mc
Daniel was adequately lugubrious as the
comforting neighbor.
At the close of the action the class
gave Byers and the cast an ovation, and
Professor Reddie was unstinted in his !
praise of both the plav and the actirut. 1

pected to arrive on the campus yester
day, has been delayed awaiting official
government authority confirming his
appointment here and securing his re
lease from Camp Lewis, where he has
been captain of G company 3(11 Infan
try. “The word may come quickly to
him from the government or he may be
delayed a few days waiting for it,"
said Karl Onthank, secretary to Pres

not speculate on the days he will be here,
but it should be very soon, possibly,
not. by the end of this week, however.”
Twenty.one applications from men of
the battalion who wish to go to the
Presidio training camp, which opens
May 15 have been received up to last

even be able to send her full quota of
20, although Colonel John Leader is
very anxious that Oregon shall be able
to send 20.
Applicants to be examined.
Applicants are subject to physical ex
amination and more important still,
subject to the orders now on the way
from Washington, which will give the
qualifications of the men. A letter giv
ing the exact requirements for men
going to the camp and the conditions
under which Oregon may send them,
was mailed Monday and should arrive
Friday. Then definite appointments
will be made.
If there is not a sufficient number of
undergraduate men who qualify, the
field may be opened to graduates, who
come under Class C, so that the full
20 men may be sent. The age limit,
understood at present to be 20 years
and 0 months, is barring several men;
whom it is thought could qualify in
other ways. Physical defects are keep

Campus Scandal Exposed;
See Finish Friday Night
Sh! Liston—Gather round!
Says Emma Wootton Hall to Harold
Cnko: “Dont you lovo mo any more?"
Then says Helen Bracht Maurice to
Ray Couch: “Arent you glad to see me
—why dont you kiss me?” And Ray
answers, quite matter of fact: “I cant
kiss you every five minutes."
Rut Rill llaseltine, the slickest, of
the slick, who reigns more often than
the law' allows, says in honeyed tones
to Emma Wootton Hall, to Helen
Bracht Maurice and to llarold Cake in
turn—“Fairest, rarest maiden of the
world, for thee my hair is all uncurled!”
'Harold, in feminine robes approaches
Rill and takes a wisp of Bill’s already
scarce locks; be counts off absent mind
edly—“He loves me, he loves me not—”
This sort of thing has been going on
for the last ten days, and a big blow
up is expected to end the affairs at a
very early date.

Mr. Mott, who is an actor himself and

to think that the characters he has
