Oregon Emerald volume 21 EUGENE, OREGON, SATURDAY, MAY 29, 1920 NUMBER 84 VARSITY QUARTETTE SINGS YALE “BOOLA” PLEASING MR. TAFT Difference On League Merely Question of Authorship He Declares LUNCHEON GIVEN VISITOR American Government Greatst In World Because Adapted to Governed, States Ex-President Taft manifested great delight when the University quartette sang the Yale Boola Song at the lun cheon given in his honor yesterday noon by the Eugene chamber of com merce and the University faculty at the chamber of commerce. • Mr. Taft lectured at the Armory last night on the combined topics, “Americanism vs. Bolshevism” and “The League of Nations.” He made a short speech at the luncheon about the attitude^of the political parties toward the league. He explained that the differences which have been taking place in our Senate today are merely a question of authorship. He 'said that in effect the changes which the Republicans would haVe made, especially in rela tion to the article concerning the Monroe doctrine, are the same as those the Democrats desire. “I say to you, gentlemen,” said the ex-president, “in all good faith, that the differences propounded and pound ed in the Senate over Article Ten in ten years* will seem impossible be cause they are so ridiculous.” Hendri.cks Hall Girls Serve By a special invitation of the cham ber of commerce the following Hen dricks hall girls served at the banquet yesterday noon: Mona Logan, Frances Moore, Frederika Schilke, Genevieve Spriggs, Helen Brown, Helen Dustan, Laura Duerner, Naomi Wilson, Ber nice Alstock, Dorothy Chausse, Wil lielmina Becksted, Bonita Kirk, Bertha Case, Leona Gregory, Margaret Scott. • Elizabeth Stephenson, Inez King and Katheryn Ball. Mr. Taft in his speech at the Ar mory declared that there is a greater distribution of wealth, and a greater distribution of happiness in the Unit ed States than there is in any other country in the world, and the reason is that the form of government is adapted to the characteristics of the governed. The right of the individual to “life, liberty and the pursuit of hap piness” is the one great principle of our Constitution, he declared, and this principle which is based on man’s de sire for personal gain is the enly in centive which is great enough to make for consistent and continued ip’ogress.

Kissing; Other Women in Public Justifies Jilting Decides Jury Mike Harris Loses Financee, Job, Health, And Gets No Damages When a girl catches her fiance kiss ing another girl in such a public place as the Oregana, while evidence that they had been drinking out of the same glass with tivo straws still lies before them, she is justified in,break ing her engagement with him. Such was the opinion of the jury which heard the case of Mike Harris vs. Lu cille MeCorltle in moot court Thurs day night. In spite of the fact that Han is cla; nod to have lost his health, his jc !> as night watchman on Kincaid field, all chances of ever getting mar ried, and his future support, on ac count of the sudden fracture of his engagement to Miss lijcCorkle, the jury thought it no reason why she should have to pay him $10,000 dam ages after he had acted in such a manner with other women. The* lily-like character of the plain tiff, as it was painted by t)ie various witnesses for the prosecution, was (Continued on page 3) SOLOISTS DUE NEXT WEEK First Dress Rehearsal of Music Festival Set for Monday Madam Rose McGrew, dramatic so prano and opera singer, who will sing the leading roles in the two produc tions of the Music Festival, ’’Cavai leria Rusticana” and “The Rose Maid-; en,” on the week-end of the 9th, 10th and lltli of June, will arrive on the! campus Monday.

All of the other teams remain, but up to this noon only# the Sigma Chis, Sigma Nus and Weonas had played their games and won. The biggest excitement of the week was the Sigma Chi vs. Bachelordon contest, in which the’ husky Sigma Chis slipped over a whole army of runs on the Bachelordons, and the final score after careful counting was 15 to 7. Ifv Roscoe Gawcett had been there he would have had a world of fun writing an account of the cavort ings of the fraternity nines. . Cres Maddock was there, 190 lbs strong, pastiming in right field. • Ten Runs Made Kennon and Bullock took turns pitching for the Sigma Chis, and Milznerdid the hashing for the Bach elordons. The victors piled up ten runs in the initial period, and they slacked on thfeir efforts the rest of the game. If they hadn’t the scorer would have haB| writer’s cramp.

FOUR MORE DROPPED BY PROBATION BOARD Failure to Improve Scholarship or Observe Rules After Posting Chief Reasons Three students wege dropped from the University Wednesday by the probation committee, and one was dropped at their meeting last even ing, according to Registrar Carlton E. Spencer, chairman of the probation committee. This maftes a total of 13 who have been dropped this year. Students on probation who have not complied with the rules governing this, or w'ho have not improved their scholarship ard the ones called before the probation committee. Some of them have failed to report to their dean when posted, or have failed to get in the requird reports when on probation. These failures, along with other delinquencies, said Mr. Spencer, are grounds for dropping a student permanently from the University. In order to be readmitted to the University the student must petition. Only one such petition was sent in this year, said the registrar, and this one was denied.

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON WINNER IN TRISTATE ORATORICAL CONTEST Fred Coley’s Addrejs, “Call No Man Common,” Awarded $100 Prize l). OF W.

Coley received two firsts ton composition and two on de livery. The subject of his address was “Call No Man Common,” and was a justification of trade unionism. Owing to the failure of Kenneth Cole, the University of Washington representative, to show up for the contest, the only other speaker last night was R. R. Breshears, of the University of Idaho. His topic was “The American Plan.” No explana tion had been received late last night for the failure of the Washington man to put in an appearance but if he ar rives with a valid excuse for being late the contest will be held over again tonight between him and Coley, ac cording to Professor R. W. Prescott, of the public speaking department. Last night's results eliminate Bresh ears from participation in this, if it is held. Cole was to have talked on the subject of "Theodore Roosevelt.” This is the third year in succession that an Oregon man has won the con test. Last,year the prize was taken by Joseph Boyd and the year before by Abe Rosenberg. The prize is of fered by ex-Senator Blaine, of Seattle.

Seniors Get nth Degree of Jazz At Sigma Nu House Affair There are vehicles of many sorts, and many kinds, but no one ever guessed that there were as many means of transportation as were brought forth to carry the ladies to the senior party at the Sigma Nu house last night. Wheelbarrows, bi cycles, youngster's wagons, one horse shays, and a farm wagon featured. The farm wagon was drawn by Charjes, who is an ancient white horse, but who has not yet forgotten his childish tricks, for streetcars and automobiles still spell terror to him, and his one steps and shimmies to the left and right of the street were a marvel to all those who witnessed it. Some of the dancing later in the evening was said to have been copied from Charles. The party was decidedly jazzy, and it is whispered that there were few, if any, chaperons, and that the party lasted until—well, we hate to expose the seniors. Cres Maddock as the parson made a decided hit, hut his actions were deeidodly disapproved of, for most of his attentions were centered upon the vamp of the evening, “Red” Sutton. The Emerald sleuth would like to expose many more of the class dig nitaries, hut feels that he cannot do justice to either their actions nor their costumes, so will call it square by voting it an honest-to-goadness| party and keeping the rest of the “dopb” out of print.
