ACCUSATIONS AND THEIR FOUN
Following are a few excerpts from;
seems certain, ns Oregon, realizing the!
Washington Daily which tend to show
the spirit of the University of Wash
ington in regard to the selection of
the University of Oregon football
team to represent the West at Pasa
dena New Year’s day, as expressed
through the medium of that sheet:
“While official confirmation of the
report that Oregon would in all prob
ability he chosen to meet Harvard is
lacking, it is quite likely that that in
stitution will he chosen. This fact
seems certain, as Oregon, realizing the
prominence the game would give not
only to the West, hut also to Oregon I
itself, has worked and kept tho wires
buzzing between Portland and Pass
dona since the announcement was
made. Every prominent citizen and I
official of the Oregon University has;
been urging by telegraph, telephone|
and letters that their university be
“On lht> other hand. Washington 1ms
been sitting peacefully, pursuing the
policy of watchful waiting, relying on
their reputation to pull down the
chosen honors. Not until the last
minute have the authorities in elmng^
permitted themselves to act to any
great degree. Heeuuse of this appar
ent indifference of the Washington
officials and representatives, the Pa
sadena officials are wont to pick our
rivals as tho ones to represent the
West on New Year’s day.
“As has been intimated, Oregon
will, because of these reasons, most
likely In picked. They have worked
tooth and nail for the honor and it
for no other reason, deserve the game
from this standpoint.”
Tho editorial of the issue carries
‘ An unofficial report says that Ore
gon has been invited. It' this is true
then we can only retire gracefully.
Wo. retire, but with the Justifiable feel
ing that we should have been chosen
liy all point in the ‘dope’ W ashington
is entitled to the conference chain
pionship. Oregon went down after
winning from us. Washington's per
rentage is considerably raised. We on
ly wish we had tho opportunity i<
provi to Oregon that wo can now
whip her to u standstill cn our home
grounds, at Pasadena, or at Eugene
“Meanwhile, Washington’s victory
flag flies from the top of the pole.”
To attempt a criticism of such
statements seems needless. it can
only be hoped that the Daily in print
ing such statements dees so w it it the
realization tiiat it is not voicing the
sentiment of the University of Wash
ington student body. The words
stand for what they are—the attempt
of a paper representing a big institu
tion to make excuses to the West
for being beaten fairly and squarely!
by an institution less than half its;
In all sincerity, let it be known!
that Oregon did not “keep the wires
buzzing between Portland and Pasa
dena,” attempting to swing the se
lection of the Pasadena committee.
“Every prominent cictizen and official
of the Oregon University” did not
urge by telephone, telegraph or let
ters that the University be chosen. ,
Oregon did not have to resort to any
such methods to have its eleven put
before the eyes of the Pasadena com-;
mittee. The sport critics and foot-j
ball followers of the entire coast,
from the Columbia river to the Mex
ican line, realized that Oregon was
the best fitted to represent the West,
and they on their own accord gave
the Lemon-Yellow team any publicity
that it received.
As to Washington sitting peace
fully, pursuing the policy of watchful
waiting too much cannot be said.
Following the Washington victory
over California every Washington
paper and paper containing reports
of the game written by Washington
reporters heralded the Northern team
as the Pacific Coast champions. They
even had Governor Hart, of Washing
ton, wire the Pasadena committee,
asking that Washington be selected.
The mayor, chamber of commerce
members and every prominent man
of Spokane were called upon to wire
the committee to select Washington.
Oregon did none of these tilings. It
was the universal opinion of officials
and team members alike that if Ore
gon was not selected on its merits it
did not care to be chosen.
Concerning the friendly little note
about wishing they had the oppor
tunity to prove to Oregon that they
could “whip” us to a standstill on
our home grounds, at Washington, or
in Pasadena, we would like to refer
the Daily to a little volume of high
school papers which can be found in
the library of a high school in this;
state. In one of these papers will be]
found, almost the exact words of the!
Daily written by the editor after the]
team of his high school had gone]
down to defeat at the hands of the1
high school of a neighboring city.

gallery range by the students ol’ the
tniversity are u decided credit to the
institution, according to Sergeant K.
Martin, who is instructing the cadets
in the use of the service ritie.
Over 100 cadets have tired the sub
calibre rifle and the average score is
something over 44 out of a possible
50. Less than five per cent of the
students have fallen below 40, which
is considered excellent shooting. Sev
eral have plugged the bull's-eye for
as high as 4S.
The highest score was made by
Virgil L. Cameron, a sophomore,
(’■•moron shot six sets, scoring two
4S’s, ono from GO foet and the other

scored two 40's and from the "afoot
mark, a 44 and a 43.
Clayton Ingle, a freshman, and
Daniel Welch, a sophomore, circled
4S's from a kneeling position at GO
feet. Adrian Kuslow. a sophomore,
and Hoyd lseminger, freshman, scor
ed 41 from the same position.
Although the distance at which the
rith is tired is short, the bull s eye is
comparatively small. The military
experts figure that a man who makes
u ll score on the gallery range with
a ub-calihre rifle will shoot ever 40
on the regular range, tiring service
The average made in the service,
according to Sergeant Martin, is about
14. Considering the fact that many
ot the cadets who tired are using a
Springfield rifle for the tirst time, the
scores are exceptional, he says.

IS. GEHLINGER HERE
IN TIME TO ADDRESS
Regent is Thirteen Hours on
Way From Portland
MUST HURRY CAMPAIGN
Student Movement Adds Much Need
ed Impetus to Drive, Is
Starting from Portland at midnight
Mrs. George Gerlinger, regent of the
university, who was to have ad
dressed the student body this morn-!
ing at assembly arrived in Eugene;
on a much delayed train at 1 o’clock.
She went immediately to Hendricks
hall where she lunched with the
student council. Mrs. Roy Bishop
and Homer Angell also of Portland,
were unable to come on account of
the traffic tie-up in the city.
In speaking to the council, Mrs.
Gerlinger expressed her appreci
ation of the way in which the stu
dents have taken over the Women’s j
building drive and commented upon
the efficient organization of the
campangn on the campus. “It is just
the impetus needed at this time to
carry the fund through,” declared
Mrs. Gerlinger, “and the people of
Portland fully realize the import- \
ance of your work. They say it is
a certain success now and that we
are bound to make our allotment
with the students behind it the way
they are. We had to have some new
way to get at the public and now
with your help this looks like the
end of the drive at last
“We must raise $25,000 before
January, 1921, or the state appropri
ation will lapse. That fact is not
wholly understood by the majority
of the people, I am afraid, but that
makes a definite time limit which
we have to work within. It leaves
about twelve months and I am con
vinced that the best plan is to push
it rapidly now rather than to have
such distraction and hurry at the
last minute. The students coming in
and rounding it out gives just the
necessary push to the campaign to
put it through on time. I rejoice in
this particularly. You come from
prominent families from all over the
state and are not only prepared to
solicit successfully, but it gives a
chance for new publicity in the news
Mrs. Gerlinger emphasized the
fact that the newspapers had been
particularly kind in giving space to
the Women’s building cause. The
campaign, she said, has been going
on for six years, having been start
ed bv Miss Ruth Guppv. former dean
of women. Fifty thousand dol
lars has already been paid in and
twenty thousand dollars is in sight,
but twenty-five thousand must still
“Ke don’t want to face a deficit at
the end of the next twelve months,
so let's hurry the thing through,”
urged Mrs. Gerlinger.
At the Greater Oregon committee
meeting this afternoon Mrs. Ger
linger spoke again to the commit
tee and explained the blue prints of
the new building to arouse enthusi
nem among the students.

CUT IK TRAIN SERVICE
MAY CHANGE OREGON
Increase In Expenses Causes
Inability to Get Special
to Des Moines
serious changes in the plans of
the Oregon delegation to the Stu
dent Volunteer convention in Des
Moines are expected to result
from recent curtailment of railroad
service by the fuel administration.
The committee in charge of the dele
gation is practically certain that it
will be impossible to charter a special
train from Spokane to Des Moines
This will prevent the use of Pullman
cars for hotel accommodations while
the convention is in progress. These
changes add materially to the ex
pense. The expense to be borne by
the members themselves will be much
larger as will the part to be paid
by the school.
Numerous pledges are still out
standing and reports from organiza
tions which have undertaken to aid
the raising of the $1,000 fund have
not been made. With the increased
cost of sending the delegation, more
money than planned for the original
campaign will be needed. It is
doubtful, however, if even the orig
inal amount asked for has been

to send more than the 12 delegates

Miss Urith Dailey, secretary of the
Y. W. C. A. The number of repre
sentatives from the faculty will
probably have to be reduced, although
the original quota of delegates al

The committee is desirous of send
ing Oregon’s full quota if sufficient
funds «an be raised. The students
who have made pledges are urged to
fill them. Final reports from the
different organizations in the state
who are aiding the university are
expected soon, but much more than
can be expected is needed if Oregon
is to send her entire allotment.
