The aspirants will be in a much bet

by Dick Sunderleaf, looks like a
strong contender for the cup. He has
such men as Tuck, Ilayslip, Gasso

Hayward Outlines Plan
Bill Ilayward outlined his new
draft system which he plans to use
to get the fellows out for athletics.
"This does not apply to track only,”
said Bill, "every man on the campus
will he called upon sometime to do
something under this draft system.
Come out and beat the draft.” A
yellow list in the Emerald will hold
the names of the draft dodgers.

University Depends On Bill
The life or death of the University
depends on this millage bill, said
Mr Newbury. The studetns, he said,
do not seem to realize the serious
ness of the situation and it is im
perative that they attend assembly
and the meetings which will be held
in the houses Wednesday evening.
The personal contact with citizens of
the state which they will bo able to
bring about during spring vacation
will give them a splendid chance to
explain the great need for the pas
sage of the bill, Mr. Newbury told
During the spring term the council
will complete the work it has been
doing on student government, the
honor system and the cut system.

"Greater than Kubelik, much great

Jacques Thibaud by Rex Underwood,
head of the violin detartment in the
■ University school of music. "Thibaud
has few equals and no superiors,”
says Mr. Underwood. “He is un
questionably the leading French vio
linist. It is an unusual opportunity
that will be presented Eugene people
i in Villard hall next Tuesday evening.
“Kubelik is perhaps better known
to most Americans through adver
tising and through Victrola records,”
continued Mr. Underwood, "but he is
not ranked so high by musicians.
Besides, Thibaud has spent his recent
years far from the concert platform,
serving as a poilu in the trenches in
France, where he was wounded. This
is his first trip to the Pacific' north
