Hurt fn Spirit When 91st Sails and
Leaves Him at Camp Lewis.
Robert James Cosgriff, second lieu
tenant in the United States army, who
left the University last year as a fresh
man, has been “wounded,” has been “dec
orated,” is not married, nor engaged
tor likely to be. nor ever has been ac
cording bo Ute answers he made to the
nuestionnairc sent him for information
publication in the Alumni magazine.
“I was wounded in spirit on the day
the flet division left for the show and
I wag stuck in the depot brigade,” he
writes. He explains his decorationss
by saving “the deep furrows on my brow
are due to worrying because I couldn't
get to the war.”
Witb regard to experiences, he writes
fkat he had two salient experiences, one
when he experienced hope to get to the
fight when it was on and the second
when he experienced an uncontrollable
longing to return to the school he loves,
now that the “parade is over.”
“My sole ambition,” he says, “is to
turn to the University in the fall and,
stay until I am ready to graduate. I
get a little funny feeling when I think
about it like I wanted to cry or fight
or something. I don’t know what.
“I have had a lot of hard things hap
p. ■ since i came into the service but in
spite of them I hope to return to col- :
lege next foil” J
Here’s One Dance
Which Basketeers
Won’t Need to Miss
The basketball team is happy. Six
girls in college are correspondingly hap
py. Why? Because the team will be
back for the Freshman Glee Saturday
The team has been in hard luck as
far as dances go, for the entire winter.
The schedule has been so arranged that
the team has been away for nearly all
the dances. They have had to be ab
sent from most of the house dances be
cause of basketball, and they even had
to miss the Sophomore Informal.
When the dates for the O. A. C.
games at Corvallis and the Freshman
Glee were announced, the team moaned
in despair. It seemed ns though all
luck was against them. They could not
even go to the Freshman Glee.
Dean Walker sympathized with the
players, and told them that he would
try to arrange it so that they could both
play at Corvallis and attend the dance
at Eugene- And it has been done. The
second game will be played Saturdny
afternoon, and the team will have ample
time to catch the 5 o'clock train for
home. They may be a little late for the
dance, but no difficulty is expected in
filling out their programs.

GO Women Turn Out; Half are Fresh
men; Miss Gorman is Coach.
About sixty girls turned out for the
first indoor baseball practice held in the
gymnasium Monday at 5 o’clock. More
than half of this number were freshmen.
I>ast night's practice consisted of pre
liminary training in the art of playing
baseball, ns to how to throw and catch
the ball, how to handle the bat and how
to stand while using it.
Practice will probably continue for the
rest of this term before teams are chos
'en, according to Miss Gladys Gorman,
coach. More upperclass girls are needed,
Miss Gorman said, before upperclass
teams can be chosen. The practice for
freshmen will be held Tuesdays and
Thursdays at 5 o’clock. Upperclassmen
will practice at 4 o’clock on Tuesdays
and Thursdays and practice for all will ;
be held at 4 o’clock, on Me rid ax.

Women may Choose same Date;
Two Tentative Questions
Twelve Teams are Left After
Elimination of Winners
According to Points.
The second round of the men’s dough
nut debates has been scheduled for the
evening of March (> and it is probable
that the women will accept this date
when the house representatives meet to
morrow afternoon.
The men have chosen for their ques
tion, “Resolved, that the United States
should cancel the French government's
money debt to the United States gov
ernment.” This question follows the de
cision laid down by members of the
league when they first organized to use
for subject matter just that material
which might involve timely problems of
the league of nations
Six Men’s Teams Left
Following the elimination of three of
the house teams according to points
wou in the last debate, there remain in
the men’s league only six teams and their
program for competing at the next time
has been arranged as follows:
Affirmative vs. Negative.
Friendly Hall vs. Delta Tan Delta.
Delta Tau Delta vs. Beta Theta Pi.
Beta Theta Pi vs. Sigma Nu.
Sigma Nu vs- Phi Delta Theta.
Phi Delta Theta vs. Oregon Club.
• Oregon Club vs. Friendly Ilall.
The coaches for the next series of
debates will probably be the same as
before. i
lo unoose uuesuun
Thus far the women have two tenta
tive questions up for consideration which
they will choose between fiuurly tomor
row after due consideration of the mer
its of both. These questions are, first,
“Resolved, that the league of nations
should rule that all non-governiug colo
nies should be placed under the juris
diction of the league”; or second,ly, “Re
solved, that a Germany embittered by
letot and loss of colonies is more to be
feared inside the league of nations than
outside of it.”
The women’s houses still in the race
are Alpha Phi, Oregon Club, Gamma Phi
Beta, Hendricks Hall, Pi BeBta Phi,
and Kappa Kappa Gamma. These hous
es will be scheduled for the second meet
tomorrow according to the dual plan in
Building Will Have Largest Floor Space
on Campus.
The old drill shed is fast being trans
formed into a huge new gymnasium, and
it is hoped by Dean Walker, iu charge
of athletics, that the end of the present
week will seee th work completed. This
new building will overcome the present
handicap of insufficient floor space.
There will be three double tennis courts,
five handball, volleyball and squash
courts. The students will have two bas
ketball sections and the faculty will have
A doughnut league for indoor baseball
will more than likely be formed in the
near future, as there is plenty of room
for such games that was lacking before.
Many University functions other than
athletic games may be held here, as this
building will constitute the largest amount
of floor space on the campus. The var
sity and freshman teams have been ham
pered by having only one gymnasium,
as doughnut games interfered, but I)onn

Many Campus Favorites to Trip
From Wings Next Friday Evening
Rehearsal Shows Johnnie Houston Posing in Same Old Way,
Cres Maddock as Policema and Marian
Gilstrap as Swedish Maid.
By Bess Coleman
Dropping in at a rehearsal of “What
Happened to Jones,” lust evening at the
Eugene theatre to get a glimpse of
what is to be expected next Friday night
an Emerald reporter saw an array of tal
ent which will he almost sure to be
enough to suit all varieties of campus
First there appeared Johnnie Houston.
Johnnie will be Johnnie, the same old
“Prince of Liars” who made us laugh i
last year in Guild hull. He has the same
graceful poses! Next Marion Gil
strap tripped from the wings, but
as a Swedish servant girl. Then there
was Cres Ataddock, a policeman, and not
a hit rusty after his long vacation from
the stage. He policed all over the place,
while Hester Hurd and Norvell Thomp
son flirted outrageously at the side.
David Lloyd Stearns did am Indian war
dance too, while Bill Bolger registered
pleading distress. Several of our former
stars were there and a few new ones
who hope to twinkle. And all the time
Miss Charlotte Bnnfield presided, watch
ing, guiding, stopping the action, starting
it again.
Especially noted was the old pink set
no longer pink hut painted a cool blue.
Whether it was Ella Dews or Marion
Coffey, or ed Fowler or whoever it
was that thought of it, everyone will be
thankful, that's almost sure.
So plans are almost ready for St. Val
entine's evening. Lines uro learned, seats
are selling like proverbial hotcakes and
plans look favorable for the early dimin
ishing of the student body debt. It is ru
mored that the event will be "dressy”,
and it is whispered that the chaperons
adorning the boxes will wear evening
dress. At all events it seems that cam
pus folk are responding and all eager to
see our actors cavorting on the boards.
Infants will Go with Varsity
for Two-Game Series
at Corvallis.
Tlio Freshman basketball squad will
journey to Corvallis with tbe varsity
team Friday to play tbe O. A. C. rooks.
The Frosh will play two games on the \
same nights as the varsity. The team is 1
in good condition for the contest, and the
frosh are capable of playing a fast fight
ing game.
No definite lineup has been announced,
but probably Ventch and Manerud will
play forwards, Jacobberger and Heller
guards, , J Latham center. There may be j
some changes but t.h«4*e men seem to have
the best chances of making the regular j
frosh team.
Manuerud and Ventch are a mighty
clever pair of basket shooters and will
cause considerable trouble for the Aggie
rooks. They have played together for
the past two years in high school and
their combination is hard to beat. Latham
at center has been doing some ifne work
for the frosh and looks like the best bet
for the pivot position. Marc plays a clean
fjf game and tosses the ball in the hoop
with considerable regularity. Boiler and
Jacobberger are doing some tall work
at the guard positions. Boiler is an ac
curate passer and seldom allows his man
to slip over a shot.
The freshman team is determined to
clear the record of last year’s quintet,
which lost three out of four games to the
Aggies. The same number of {/ ines will
be played this yenr, ns the O, A. C. rooks
will come to Eugene when the Aggies
play their return game with the varsity.
At yet tbe freshman team is not sched
uled to play any more games, but Dean
Walker says they will play some Port
land team if the game can bn arranged.
Extension Division and Rod Cross will
Gather Statistics of State.
The University division will co-oper
ate with the Red Cross, according to
John C. Almack, director, in conducting
a health survey of the state of Oregon.
Material to be collected for the survi.
will consist of health statistics, health
legislation, and general information re
garding agencies concerned with the pro
motion and protection of health. Most of
the material will be secured at local Red
Cross chapters, then prepared and re
ported to tbe northwestern division of
the Red Cross.
