Although the. health committee at
the University has not yet had a
meeting since town authorities de
cided to call off the ban, it will meet
as soon as possible, and in all prob

pus activities, said Dr. Sawyer, this
morning. If it is decided to co-oper
ate with the town the ban will be off
at least by Thursday.
Although there have been more
fever cases since Saturday, the sit
uation does not seem to warrant
continuation of the strict health regu
lations now in effect, he stated. The
committee will meet Wednesday to
decide upon the possibility of re
moving all health regulations, but in
all probability things will not open
up at the University until Thursday

Youngsters Lose to Salem High Fri
day, Score 30-22—Andre and
Latham Star
Although losing their first game of
the two played in Salem Friday and
Saturday nights, the frosh quintet
came back strong and defeated the
Willamette freshman quintet by the
decisive score of 50 to 10 on Saturday
evening. The Salem high school five
took the frosh into camp on Friday
evening, however, by a score of 30
to 22 in a fast game. The score was

was a mistake.

point-getters in the game with the
Missionary “babes”, Andre scoring
24 of the points while Latham chalked
up 16 for the frosh quintet. Coach

Workouts and Basket Shooting
Preparing for Contest
Coach Huntington started his pro
teges on a stiff week of practice last
night in preparation for the coming

basket shooting and pacing around
the court for a good sweat is the wav

night and according to “Shy” the
team is going to be in tip top condi
tion by the end of the week for the
last big battles of the basketball sea
The Aggies are as equally determin
ed to win in an effort to wipe the
slate clean of the defeats which the
lemon-yellow five handed out to them
on the Corvallis courts some three
weeks ago, and are working hard
every night. They suffered two de
feats at the hands of the Stanford
.live last week and they, too, will
finish the season with the two games
to be played here this week.
Both Durno and Chapman are back
into the harness again and with
these two stars working as they did
against the Aggies in Corvallis, dope
points to defeat for the visitors.
Latham, Lind and Jacobberger are
all beginning to feel like themselves
again, and Bellar, McCready and
Skeet Manerud were out in suits
again last night, so once more the
lemon-yellow squad is putting in its
appearance intact.

together with California losing the
Saturday night game to the Wash

Extension Division Brings Dr.
C. L. Carlisle to Direct
Delinquency Probe
Plans Formed to List all Mental De
fectives to Assist Corrective
Dr. Chester L. Carlisle, of the U.S.
public health service, Washington,
D. C., arrived in Eugene Saturday and
is to begin work at once as director
of the survey covering the cause and
extent of dependency, delinquency
and mental defect in the state of
Oregon, which the extension division
of the University is taking. This
investigation is being made at the
request and under the authority of a
joint resolution of the state legisla
ture, passed at its last session. It
was also requested that suggested
legislation be submitted on the basis
of the data obtained.
Dr. Carlisle since lflOi has been
connected with the New York state
hospital service and for several years
was in charge of one of the Metro
politan receiving services. Later he
was appointed superintendent of the
division of mental defect and delin
quency of the New York stale ooard
of charities and as such had super
vision over 23 institutions caring for
mental defectives and delinquents.
He was in the neuro-psychiatric div
ision of the army and later was com
mission in the U. S. public health
service. Dr. Carlisle was also direc
tor of the bureau of analysis and in
vestigation for the New York state
board of charities and as such con
ducted a survey of Oneida county,
New York, which was very similar
to the one he lias been asked to con
duct in Oregon.
In speaking of the investigation to
be undertaken ip Oregon, Dr. Car
lisle said: “We plan to send all the
various state, county and municipal
officers throughout the state a re
quest for information along the lines
indicated by the survey. Blank forms
will be furnished upon which to re
cord this data in order that statis
tical figures may be compiled. We
expect to get all possible preliminary
information in this manner, then di
vide the state into districts, and make
an intensive study of representative
sections. Prom . this data accurate
deductions may be drawn.”
"It is only through the active co
operation of all state, county, muni
cipal and private charitable and re
lief organizations, school teachers,
parole agents and other public-spirited
citizens, who may be called upon to
furnish information as to any defec

Soph Girls Shy at Making Dates
Kemember, girls, how you’ve
sat at home and wondered It He
was going to call you np—won
dered whether He was going to
make that dbte? Well, 250 per
fectly desirable boys, members of
, the sophomore class, are in the
same fix.
It’s all because the girls are
forgetting to make good their
dates for the Sophomore Lot
tery. The drawing has been fin
ished, but any girl who hasn’t
drawn 'a name can make arrange
ments by getting in touch with
“Skeet” Maherud, Elston Ireland
or Clara Calkins.
The time has been definitely set
The affair is scheduled for 8
o'clock Saturday night, and no
thing short of the end of the j
world can upset the program.
The change was made in order
to prevent a conflict with the bas
ketball games to be played Sat
urday afternoon.
It’s going to be a hard times
part. Eats that will remind you
of “down on th£ farm” and a
regular program that will hie
you back to the good old days
when a cup o’ java went ,tor a
nickel. And the program—It’s
all arranged.
The mere men need not worry
about getting to the gym. The
girt® are arranging the transpor
tation facilities. Market reports
state that there is' a steadily ad
vancing premium on go-carts and
wheelbarrows. Taxis are banned.
As a final word of warning to
the gentler sex the committee an
nounces that all sophomore wo
men who haven’t made their dates
by Thursday evening will be in
for some free advertising. Thev
have decided to publish the names
of the girls who have neglected to
make their arrangements.
The price of admission 1.: six
bits in American coin, equiva'enl
at the present rate of exchange
to a million rubles or a poach of

spirit,” plead the sophomore men,
“and show us now how it ought
to be done, or forever after, hold
your peace!”
“mislaid Receipts’’ Fails to Save Two
Dozen From Suspension—May
Be Reinstated Soon
More than two dozen students have
been suspended from college because
of failure to pay laboratory ,fees, ac
cording to Carlton Spencer, regis
trar. The notice came as a distinct
shock to many students who were
confident their fees had been pAid
and that they had "mislaid the receipt
somewhere.” But Monday was the
last day of grace granted by the re
gistrar, and after that date all stu
dents who had not filed the little re
ceipt were surprised to be informed
they were no longer registered in
the University.
A mad rush’ to the office to pay
fees was the result, and the registrar
was pestered with calls to "make
sure it was not a mistake.”
All fees are expected to be paid by
Wednesday, after which students may
return to classes without petitioning
for reinstatement. During the time
of suspension absences will receive
the usual cut which must be excdSed
by petition.

Carl and Black Out-Talk and
Out-Argue Men From North
In Spirited Contest
Varsity Negative Team Given an
Unanimous Decision at Mos
cow on Friday
University debaters scored a dou
ble victory last night in the inter
national debate league when the Ore
gon affirmatives, handicapped by what
is conceded to be by far the most
difficult side of the question, out
argued and out-delivered the British
Columbia negative in Villard hall and
received a two to one decision, while
the Oregon negative, arguing at Mos
cow, defeated the University of Idaho
three to nohing. Wilbur M. Carl and
George Black, Jr., both Juniors from
Portland, spoke for the affirmative
here and Remy Cox, a sophomore
from Portland, and Ernest Crockatt,
a junior from Spokane, argued the
negative side at Moscow.
A smattering of a crowd in Villard
hall heard the Oregon team take the
notably difficult offlrmative side of
tlie question, “Resolved, That the ap
plication of the principles of the clos
ed shop would best serve the cause
of industrial peace,” and by forceful
delivery and well handled rebuttals
defeated the University of British
Columbia men who handled their side
in a masterful manner.
collective Bargaining involved
Wilbur Carl, opening for the Oregon
team, declared that the affirmative
based its case on the fact that “the
closed shop and collective bargaining
go hand in hand—and that collective
bargaining transfers strife from in
dustries to peace tables.”
These differences, Carl pointed out,
that cannot be settled around the
conference table and revert back
Into the industries under the closed
shop are less prolonged, and that the
struggle for and against unionism
and closed shop which results in 33
per cent of all strikes and lockouts
would be completely eliminated if
closed shops were applied.
George Black, for Oregon, contended
that the concealed, underhanded
strike-on-the-job type Ojf warfare would
be eliminated by the closed shop and
that agreements under this system
are much more likely o be realized.
^Closed Shop Held Unjust
British Columbia based itB argu
ment on the fact that the closed shop
is unjust to non-union men; that it is
impractical to apply the closed shop;
and that if labor is satisfied by this
mehod, the employer is antagonized.
Gerald McClay and Charles X.
Travers argued for the visitors.
The judges were Frank Hilton.
