And to you sons of Oregon who met
Harvard let us assure you of the es
teem^ind loyalty and homage we bear
you. You returned to us as victors.
You are heralded far and wide as men
of courage, loyalty and fight. The
showing you made against our power
ful adversaries from the East was
one which has earned for you and our
University the unending admiration
of the collegiate world.
Fighting against powerful odds you
not only outplayed the Cambridge men
hut played a game which would
have resulted in a victorious score had
not the breaks of the contest stacked
up against you. You showed your
selves to be the equals if not the su
periors to a team representing an in
stitution of world wide fame. You
brought a wealth of glory to our Uni
versity. The lemon yellow gleams
more brilliantly.
We honor you.
Oregon wants you, Hill. Your de
parture from Oregon would leave a
big gap, all but impossible to fill.
You are essentially one of us. and no
one could serve in your position with
the same results that you attain. A
very largo share of our athletic re
cord. which yearly rises a notch high
er, Is accredited t.o you. There is
not a student in the University, not
a member of our alumni hut. who
stands ready tv) do anything in his
power to make your stay at Oregon
AVe rise to a man in asking you
that you stay with the Lemon-Yel
low. Oregon the University you have
labored, and fought, and won for
these many years.
Congratulations are due the Uni
versity of Oregon on the fine showing
made by their team against Harvard
New Year’s day, when the great east
ern aggregation was able to win only
an extremely dose game ami even
then perhaps due to breaks going
their way. It is not customary for
O. A. C. to wish the U. of O well in
her athletic fights, but in this ease
Oregon was representing the entire

0. A. C. barometer.
Tomorrow night our debate team
meets the (V A. O. debate team in
Guild ball In the first varsity debate
of the year. Our University has
received- criticism in the past on the
ground that we taJte more interest
in athletics than wo do in debate.
That was in the past. This is the
hig year of our career, and we must
let the state at large know that we
support debate with the same con-1
sistency with which we stand behind
our athletic teams We have just
closed a most successful football sea
son. Basketball prospects are bril
liant. Debate must achieve the
same success. Our varsity debaters
need the best of support. Every man
and woman in the University should
attend the debate tomorrow night
and .show our speakers that the Uni
versity is behind them.

Play By Charles Dickens To Be
Staged by University Stu
dents Friday
For lovers of Dickens, “Martin
Chuzzlewit,” one of the best liked of
his works, is being staged this Fri
day night, at the Eugene Theater, by
members of the classes of Fergus
Reddie, head of the Public Speaking
department. Instead of having the
play held in Guild Hall where the
dramatic class plays usually are giv
en Norvell Thompson, business man
ager for Prof. Reddie, has arranged
to stage the show at the Eugene
Theatre, this time in hopes that more
people will be able to see it.
“Martin Chuzzlewit” yjas played
here by the dramatic classes last year
and was considered quite successful,
however, few people were fortunate
enough to have seen the play at that
time because it was given on the cam
pus on the same night as the Girls’
Glee Club concert which got the ma
jority of the crowd, so it was decided
to put the production on again this
year with but a slight change in the
The play which is a favorite char
acter comedy, was well liked last
year, according to Miss Charlotte
Banfield, assistant to Profesor Red
die, and should be even better liked
this year, there having been a few
improvements made. The stage set
ting will be the same as that which
was used for the other performance.
The cast includes:
Professor Reddie, as “Pieksniff.”
Roy Veatch, as “Old Martin.”
Dudley Day, as “Young Martin.”
Norvell Thompson, as “Tom Pinch-”
Dorothy Wootton, as “Charity.”
Vera Van Schoonhoven, as “Mercy.”
Carl Miller, as “John Westlock.”
Claire Keeney, as “Mary Tapeley.”
Marian Taylor, as “Mary Graham.”
Marian Gilstrap, as* “Ruth Pinch.”
Norma Medler, as “Jan, the maid.”

in the east, part of his time being
taken in attending the conference
and also in conferring with the mem
bers of the committee on history
and education for citizenship in the,
schools, of which committee lie is

cation of the American boy and girl
for their responsibilities of citizen
ship was shown, Dr. Schafer be
lieves, by the attendance at the ses
sion at which hi1 presented the re
port of the committee. Although
there were numerous other confer
ences at the same time nearly all
the representatives to the three con
ventions were on hand to hear his
The Pacific Coast delegation was
exceptionally strong, according to Dr.
Schafer. Stanford, the University of
California, Mills College and the
University of Oregon were repres

institutions had •luncheon together

the Master Force in Manufacturing
THE marvels of electricity have revolutionized our manu
facturing industries. With belts and pulleys replaced
by electric motors operating automatic—almost human—
machines, many a slow and tedious process has been elimi
nated. The factory worker’s task of yesterday is made
pleasant by his command of this magic power.
The Crane Company’s plant at Chicago—electrical through
out—is a model of industrial efficiency. Its 10,000 horse
power of driving energy is brought by three small wires
from a distant power plant. Then electricity drives tl^e
machinery which handles the coal for heating, cuts the steel,
sifts the sand and sorts the material—in fact does everything
froni scrubbing the floor to winding the clock.
Such an institution is marvelous—superhuman—made thus
by the man-multiplying force of electricity. The General (
Electric Company has been instrumental in effecting this
evolution. First, by developing successful electric gener
ating and transmission apparatus to furnish economically
this modem form of power. Secondly, through many years
of active co-operation with hundreds of manufacturers, it
has mastered the art of applying the use of electrical energy
to a multitude of needs. And finally, through branch
offices and other distributing channels, its products are
made accessible to all.

When the target is in the proper po

This test is made three times. In
order to fulfill the requirements, the
cadet must sight each succeeding
bullseye within half an inch of the
original trial.
Before any cadet is allowed on the
rifle range, the required amount of
