VOLUME 21 EUGENE. OREGON, SATURDAY, Emerald FEBRUARY 7. 1920 ._ NUMBER 43 OREGANA COMMITTEES TO STAGE HARD FIGHT 1 FOR CAMPAIGN PRIZES First Student .to Turn In Fifty Subscriptions Will Win $5.00 Prize WEDNESDAY TO OPEN FIRE Efforts Made to Put Drive Over in Record Time — 1200 Names Necessary I: l' 1 I* f> h I Are you out for the prize in the Oregana campaign? If so see Els ton Ireland at once for tags, receipt book and instructions, and be ready for an early start on next Wednes day, February 10. “It’s the one that turns In the first 50 subscriptions who wins,” said George Beggs, Oregana manager and generalissimo of the drive, today while explaining his plans. Five dol lars cash and an Oregana goes to the solicitor turning in the first 50 subscriptions; an Oregana to the sec ond one to turn in 50 subscriptions; and an Oregana to the first house to go 100 per cent in the drive. Far from feeling discouraged in launching another campaign for money close on the heels of so many collection plate passings, Ire land declares that .this one will be put over in record time. In the first place, he says, everyone recognizes the true value of the Oregana as a permanent possession, and knows that it is money well spent. Other campaigns have started money to circulating, and more than that nave demonstrated the most successful methods, and have indicated the live wire solicitors in the University. Two Days to Complete Drive “We are out for 1200 subscrip tions,” said Ireland. “The Oregana needs them, and we are going to do our utmost to have it over in two days. If possible we will close our campaign Thursday evening.” He in dicated that the prize winner would have to be out early if they expect to win “They’ll have to keep mighty busy and will have no time to waste,” he said. “Let everyone have his $1.50 Wednesday morning and not spoil anybody’s chances for tfie prize.” The price this year is $4.50, but the remaining $3.00 is not due until the book is delivered. V K & } f * » ■* ■* » *. 4 -4 * Ireland says that he does not feel in asking for Oregana subscriptions from students that he is asking for more than the support which is due the publication, from each individual. The Oregana is a student body pub lication, issued solely for the bene fit of the students. Each student must own a copy to get his full share of it, and he should look upon the subscription committee as work ing for him and taking a burden off his shoulders. Limited Number to be Printed He pointed out too that the only way to be sure of a copy of the year book is to order in advance. Only a limited number is printed, and that number is not greatly in excess of those ordered in advance. Ireland intends to conduct the cam paign largely on the plan recently used for the Emerald. He feels that a great deal depends upon the indi vidual members of the committees and has sought to find just the right one to take charge of each house. It is hoped to have every organization go 100 per cent as soon as possible. Two general committees are includ ed, one to handle the campus, and the other to take charge of the town. Tags will be used, and a tag is taken as the only valid excuse in evading a solicitor- Those in charge of the drive wish to make it dear that any student is free to enter the subscription contest whether he has been named on a committee or not. The naming of committees has only been* to place responsibility and in sure enough workers.

S- C. basket ball game. Im mediately after the firing of the pistol ending the first half of. the game “Mart” Howard ran to the center of the floor and led the spectators in a yell. Needless to say he was the only person yelling. He was follow ed by various other stunts. Leith Abbott, as manager of the famous pole vaulter, “Si” Starr, created much laughter. He in troduced Starr who appeared in a track suit and Starr then did some “fancy” pole vaulting such as it was claimed by his man ager was much in vogue at O. A. C. “Spike Leslie and Merle Blake dressed as an old man at*d a woman pushed a cart upon the floor in which Bill Reinhart dressed as a baby sat spraying his feet with a disinfectant. Prince Callison showed his ability to dance and even shim my when an almost life size cardboard of Nozimova was giv en him as a dancing partner. It was as some remarked a good thing that Prince was a good dancer as otherwise he might have stepped on the unshod feet of the famous actress. John Gamble gave a speech on Sunday baseball playing at the same time that John Houston proposed to the crowd of girls present. “Jiggs” Leslie sang a song much to the amusement of all present. As a final to the initiation each man received a stroke from the paddle and then was given his certificat eof membership. The Order of the “O’’ is an organization composed of the etter men of the University. Only men who have earned the official “0” .in some form of athletics are eligible to member ship. OREGON LOSES FAST GAME TO COUGARS BY CLOSE 29-27 COUNT Washington State Five Comes From Behind In Second Half and Wins DURNO SCORES HIGHEST Lemon-Yellow Excelled In Teamwork and Passing—Long Trip Has Little Effect on Visitors Oregon lost one of the closest, and most exciting games ever played on the home floor, to the Washington State college basketball team Thurs day evening, by of 29-27 score. The game was full of thrill's, as it was either team’s game until the last whistle. Although the cougars had just returned from a long southern trip their team was in good condi tion. Oregon was excelled by the visitors in teamwork. Even so the lemon-yellow outfit worked togeth er better than at any time on the home floor. The passing of the Washington team was one of the essentials of their victory. Latham won the jump over King, and the ball immediately went into the visitor’s territory. After a num ber of fruitless attempts by Ore gon, Durno tallied the first score of the game by one of his long shots. Durno scored another on a pass from Lind. W. S. C. took the ball directly down the floor by good passing, and Rockey shot their first basket Lath am dropped one in from the side of the floor. Most of the time the ball was under Oregon’s basket. Dur no shot two baskets one after an other. For the remainder of the first half Oregon had a distinct advantage in the score. Not once did W. S. C. seem to have a superior machine.

Doyle prominent Portland architects, will be on the campus next Wednesday, if the present plans of the architec ture department mature, according to Louis C. Rosenburg, instructor in architectural design. “The architects are coming to judge the designs of students. It is the policy of the department to have outsiders judge • the merits of our students’ work,” said Mr. Rosen burg. “This eliminates any tend ency that an instructor may have toward pwticality to individual stu dents, and keeps the student in touch with men active in the pro fession.” The architects will be asked to criticise designs of cathedrals, monu mental flag pole bases, doorways and bank and office buildings. Each of these problems required from three to four weeks’ work stated Professor Rosenberg. 59 of Faculty Resign Fifty-nine members of the Ohio State university faculty have re signed in the last year. Low salaries are given the cause. Grldsters to Meet for First Time The University of Washington will meet Montana on the gridiron next October 16, for the first time in the history of the Institutions. HARO LUCK MD RAGGED PASSING HIVES OREGON SMALL END OF SCORE Home Ouintet Draws First Blood But Is Nosed Out In Second Half SPIRITED CLASH ENDS 19-22 Team Shows Effect of Gruelling Battle With W. S. C. Thursday Hard luck, coupled with the ac curate shooting of Jamieson, the rangy center on the Washington five, spelled defeat for the lemon-yellow quintet in a ragged and loosely play ed game last night in Hayward gym nasium. Neither team played much basket ball and not until the mid dle of the last period did the team* work or floor work measure up to that of the game Thursday evening with W. S- C. Oregon took the lead from the jump and maintained it throughout the first half and well into the last period when Washing ton, by a series of lucky shots by Jamieson, pulled into the lead and managed to keep it until the final shot of the timer's gun. Oregon arew nrsc Diooa wnen Man erud hooped a free throw a few momenta after the game started, this was followed by a burst of speed by the varsity, Chapman, Man erud and Latham carrying the ball down the floor where Latham shot a pretty basket. Jamieson' scored soon after this for the northerners, while 'Manerud and Chapman carried the ball down the floor, again for a pretty basket by Chapman. Nichol son scored a basket for the Wash ington five on a pretty throw from the side lines, and two free throws scored by Cook completed the Wash ington tallies during the first period. Chapman and Manerud each scored a basket from the field during the remainder of the initial period and Manerud converted another free throw, the half ending with Oregon on the long end of a 10 to 6 score. Huntington Shifts Line-up The Northerners led off with a pretty basket by Talbot in the sec ond half, Lind retaliated by hooping a nice long one after which followed a period of ragged playing on the part of both teams. At this period of the game. Coach Huntington shift ed his line-up substituting Bellar for Jacobberger, switching Lind to cen (Continued on page ,’) NEW POSTOFFICE OPENED Campus Organizations Will Get Mail at Johnson Hall A new postoffice is now establish ed in the corridor of the administra tion building, for mail addressed to the different organizations.
