Seventy members of the Oregon state
legislature, representing ft majority of
the members of the house and senate,
are to he the guests of the University
of Oregon on the campus Saturday af
ternoon. Depending upon whether these
men are pleased with Oregon to the
point of realizing the need of properly
maintaining the plant here, is the pro
poned $200,000 appropriation needed to
start the Woman’s building and to pre
vent the University from decaying dur
ing (lie present period of high costs.
Oregon i* not begging for the appro
priation. hut is ashing it with just cause
The money is vitally needed. There
should he no need of exhortation toward
the student body to properly entertain
tlie members of the legislature during
the time they are in Eugene and on the
campus. There iis surely no real Ore
gon maa or woman unwilling to give one
afternoon when it means life to the Uni*
versify; whereas if the legislature sees
unfit to grant the appropriation, it. will
mean a period of dull, backward" years
for the state University,
Nor would tills added effort lie needed
fo e.nitertiiln the legislators further than
to appoint guides except for the fact
that the visit of the legislators is not
to he ninde upon one of the regular week
days. 'With their visit planned for Sat
urday, It will he necessary to plan an
afternoon of regular t’niversity activ
ity in order t<i give the visitors a fair
impression of Oregon.
The one hig thing in this regard will
or the assembly which has been planned
for Saturday afternoon at 2:110. The
leg: si! a ton's wtiVl ‘he interested in the
campus, the buildings, the laboratories,
hut their principal interest will he in the
ei ldren of Oregon who are obtaining
their education here. The assembly Is
the only feasible way of bringing all the
students together. And let it bring all
Oregon men and women together at this
time. Otherv , > it will he worthless
M< nthers of the legislative party will'
speak, and the meeting is to he made
d. dedh worth while in other ways in I
addition to showing the legislators the I
type of Oregon student.
When the .visitors from the state
house come into the assembly Saturday
it should he packed with Oregon stu

regular Wednes lay assembly this year. |
It will help much in giving the mem- {
hers of the legislature In the par-tv an j
ideea of the Oregon student body, th
rees.ui for the $200,000 appe-opriatkiu.
Several days ago the student coined
made the suggestion that all Oregon *tu.
dents write their representatives in the
legislature telling them of Oregon’s need
for the $200,000 appropriation, and ask
ing their support of the measures. To
day, when it is still time to reach your
representative before he starts on his
trip to the campus, is a good time to
write. Otherwise your letter will come
when your friend’s mind is busied with
other thongs in. the last hurried hows
of the session or after action has been
taken on the Oregon measure. Make
your appeal for the University effec
tive by writing it now.
Oregon’s request for $200,000 from
the state legislature is made not for the
purpose of making any great extension,
of present equipment or facilities. The
money is needed rather to keep up the
University on its present basis and with
its present standards in faculty and
scholarship during the present period of
high costs and comparatively smaller
revenue to the University from its reg
ular sources,
livery Oregon man and woman must
he on the job to keep the University
from being compelled to face a period
of backward years. When the legisla
tors come to visit the campus, Satur
day, 4?)ok up (ho representative from your
district at home. Show him around the
campus, and tell him of Oregon's needs.
See your friend for Oregon.

running up to its usual form and the
playing was very ragged. At the end of

was tied at 1 ail, and five minutes more
was allowed. I.m this period each team
made one basket and when the whistle
blew neither team had scored a major

Decision of Peace Conference
on German Colonies
is Reason.
The question for debate for the wo
men's doughnut debate league was re
stated this morning toy Professor Rob
ert W. Prescott, head of the department
of public speaking, to read “Resolved,
That Germany should not bn stripped
of her colonies.” This change was ne
cessitated by the announcement that the
peace conference has decided to do the
thing which the previous debate prop
osition proposed, to strip Germany of
her colonies, placing them under inter
national control.
In restating the question this morn
ing, Professor Prescott gave out a state
ment on the interpretation of the sub
ject for the women debaters.
Rephrasing Made Necessary
“This decision of the peace confer
ence,” he said, “necessitates a rephrasing
of the proposition for debate, iai order
to give the affirmative the initial bur
den of proof. The affirmative is the at
tacking party, or the prosecution. The
negative is the defense. Inasmuch as
the peace congress in the matter of the
German colonial question, undoubtedly
will have tremendous sanction with any
American audience, the initial burden, of
proof mint lie on them who attack this
action. Hence, without any material
Change in the real issues of the orig
inal proposition, we rephrase the ques
tion so as to make the attacking party,
the affirmative, give the first speech;
and by his rephrasing, we likewise ad
just the defend—the negative—to its
normal place.
Several Phraslngs Suggested
Severn*! phrasing® of this question
might be given:
1. Resolved, That Germany Should not
be stripped of her colonies.
2. Resolved, That the action of the
peace congress in stripping Germany of
her colonies is to be condemned, unless
it is accompanied by a solemn promise to
return the colonies to Germany when
that country shall have given convincing
evidence of reform.
3. Resolved, That the pence of the
world would be menaced by stripping
Germany of her colonies
“Inasmuch as questions two and three
are suggestive of the issues under ques
tion one, and inasmuch as question one

proposition, for debate, it may be well

done to help fill an empire of unfilled j
land? Oregon, Washington, and British
Columbia have a greater area than most
of the countries of Europe combined.
More people live in Detroit, Michigan,
tha nin Oregon.”
The pictorial part of the lecture cover
ed scenes of Oregon, Washington and
British Columbia, which may be called
the playground of the northwest. There
were pitcures of Mt. Hood, “stark, still,
regal, in appearance”; of rivers, “busy
with the commerce of the world;” of fish
swimming up creeks “literally into the
cans;” of fish, “so thick in the streams
you could walk across on their backs”—
so he told the Bostonians in a lecture
before a Country club.
Oregon forests Praised.
OC the western forests Mr. Riley could
not say enough. While in an eastern port
he asked from where a certain huge
beam came and was told that in only one
place in the world could one get such j
“collossal timbers,” Oregon “I breathed
deep and was very very pround,” he
"I told them of the flaming forest
kingdom in the autumn, of the trails
among green growing things, of the dart
ing, falling, leaping, elusive mountain
streams, he said, of the perfect spruce
trees that Oregon gave for airplanes;
the millions of feet of lumber for ships;
of the Vancouver spruce mill, the larg
est in the world; the Douglas fir, 3,0tX)
feet high.”
Pictures of Washington included Se
attle, the beautiful Spokane country,
Lake Chelan, the Rig Bend wheat fields,
Tacoma, Camp Lewis and American Lake
with Mt. Rainier. This peak is describ
eded as the most glorious thing of its
kind on the continent. “The wavering
colors of the Alpine glow flames and dies
leaving it like a phantom in the night.”
Many scenes of the Pacific highway
that connects the Arctic snows with the
palms of the tropics along which the
tourist has mountain streams for com
panions. were shown. Mr. Riley dwelt
especially on the Columbia highway,
pointing out places where pieces “had to
be bitten out of the rocks” to make the
road. Multnomah Falls he considers one
of the two queens of America.
The latter portion of the address was
a picture trip with the Mazamas to Mt.
Hood, which he termed to be a regular
mountain that coming to a peak like the
ones in the geography. First he led his
audience on a “hipperty, skipperty. jump
to the snout of the glacier.” He told of
the challenge of the mountain that calls
you from the summit and von have no
peace uutil you answer it. The pictures
showed the steady ten hour climb up
ward and the three-minute slide down.
The Order of the Owl was introduced
showing the climbers who gathered
around an all-night camp fire. The motto
of the order is "make for the hay when
the sun shines.”
A look down into the crater of Mt.
Adams, seamed and ripped with crevices
gives one a most enchanting glimpse of
the hereafter, smiled Mr. Riley.
Crater Lake Unquestioned Jewel.
Crater Lake, the unquestioned jewel
of Oregon’s gems received its proper
praise. People of the Fast were amazed
at Oregon's roses especially when Mr.
Alley told them that every one had
tourist shears by which the tourist could
cut all the flowers he wanted.
Mr. Riley is a graduate of Harvard
T’niversity and the Columbia School of
Fvpression. secretary *of the Mazamas
and vice-president of the Oregon Pacific
Highway association. He will lecture in
Salem before the state legislature Wed
nesday for the purpose of securing an
appropriation for the Tourist’s League.
