Difference On League Merely
Question of Authorship
He Declares
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.
No Danger in America
There is no real danger to the Unit
ed States because of the doctrines of
Bolshevism being preached, and the

University of Oregon Listed First‘by
Simpson College Weekly
“What college are you going to at

Simpsonian”, the weekly newspaper
of Simpson College at Indianola, Iowa.
“Will it be the University of Oregon.
Yale, Harvard, Northwestern, or
Simpson?” Dean John Landsbury, of
the University school of music, is an
alumnus of Simpson College and is
the recipient of the May 17 issue of
“The Simpsonian”, in which the art

It is significant to me, said Dean
i Landsbury, that the University-©f Ore

The really big schools in the United

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

Husky Sigma Chis Slip Over
Army of Runs Qn
Sigma Nus and Weonas Also In Ring
fof Semi-Finals So Far;
Three Eliminated
The A.T.O., Beta, and Bachelordon
doughnut baseball teams have been
eliminated from the league. 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.
Sigma Chis Going* Good
The result of the game showed
that the Sigma Chis are going to be
strong bidders for the title, find they
are working hard to improve their
outfit. The lineup was:
Sigma Chi—Kennon c, Bullock p,

The Oregon club was out practic

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.

Fred Coley’s Addrejs, “Call No
Man Common,” Awarded
$100 Prize
Failure of Kenneth Cole to Appear
May Necessitate Repititlon;
Idaho Eliminated
Prod Coley, representing the Uni
versity of regon, won the annual tri
state oratorical contest for the cash
prize of $100 which was held in Guild
hall last night. 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.
This year the contest was held- on
(ho campus for the first time since
it was started.
Judges of delivery last night were
.1. B. V. Butler of Oregon state normal
school, Professor P. O. Franklin of
Willamette university, and Professor
W. II. Lee of Albany colleget The
judges of composition were the heads
of the English departments of Reed
college, Whitman college, and Wash
ington* State college.
In addition to his last nights event,
Coley was winner of the state ora
torical contest which was held at
Forest Grove earlier in the spring.

Here for Week-End
Ruth Nash, Lois Hull and Beatrice

leaving Friday morning.
Miss Hall arrived from Drain late

Seniors Get nth Degree of Jazz
At Sigma Nu House
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.
