Four Letter Men to Be Used
In Tussle Wi,th Clubmen
last YEAR’S FROSH
SHOWING UP STRONG
Lemon-Yellow Five Will play
W. S. C. at Pullman on
With the first game Jess than u week
off. Coach G. M. Bolder has a real task
iu whipping a basketball quintet into
shape to meet the Multnomah club five
at Portland, Saturday. The team which
will in all probability be sent against the
clubmen will be made up of the last year
letter men ns far ns possible for there
has been little chance to get u line on
(he new material in the short time which
the squad has been practicing.
Coach Bolder is planning to take about
10 men to Portland for the initial con
test; of these 10, four of the last year’s
fluiutot who will make the trip are Cap
tain “Eddie” Durno. Marc Latham, Fran- j
res Dollar and “Nish” Chapman. Just j
who the remaining six will be is yet u
matter of doubt even to the coach.
This will leave one forward position
open and it is not certain that the other
veterans will start in their old posi
tions. Durno, who captains the quintet
this year, was the unanimous selection
for all Pacific coast forward and rated
the same position on the all Northwest
mythical five. Chapman also drew a
place as all Northwest guard. Latham
and Dollar both played their first season
with the varsity last winter. Dollar at
guard and Latham at center.
“Ilcrm” Lind, Lynn McCready and the
Jacobberger boys will not be out this
season. Neither “Jake” or “Vince’
Jaoobberger are registered this term
-and Lind and McCready graduated last
spring. The material from the frosh
quintet of last year will be phj.ved up to
fill the vacancies. Couch. Burnett,
.Andre and “Hunk” Latham all of last
years frosh team are showing up well.
Andre worked in the forward position
last season and was high point man ou
the frosh quintet, “Hunk” Latham, the
I'angy center will battle it out with his
brother A Tare for the center position,
flunk” played a good game for the
frosh last season although bo will be at
a disadvantage for experience against
f oucli and Burnett are consistent
guards and may be relied upon to play a
steady game. They are both showing up
well in practice.
A catch. "Reinhart and “Spike” Leslie
are out and will make a strong bid.
Acaleli Ims been showing up well in the j
dough nut games and Reinhart and Les
lie are both working well.
The pruning process lias not com*
'■raced yet. and it is doubtful whether
the squad will be cut down for a week
or more yet. The conference schedule
win begin on January 22 with Oregon
playing AV. N. C. at Pullman. This places
the lemon-yellow at a disadvantage be
cause of the long trip, and the fact that
Oe games with the strong northern
teams come at the opening of the sea
son, The later part of the season will
see all the games played at Eugene.

With U. of W. and Aggies. #
Whether or not Oregon fight can stand
up under the test in a wrestling bout will
be shown in a match between the Oregon
freshmen and O. A. ('. rooks next March,
according to Bill Hayward.
For several years wrestling lias been
among the more important of the minor
sports at the University and for the last
year and a half it has been nearing the
highest point of interest under the direc
tion of Arvo Simola. There are at pres
ent alwrF-a score of first year men out
for the sport and about 15 wrestlers who
are considered varsity material.
Work this year has created a great
amount of interest among mat fans ami
already some interesting bouts have been
staged in the classes, which ‘ are held
three times a week. The freshmen espe
cially are taking great interest in the
activity, according to Simula, who pre
dicts that the frosh-rook meet will be one
of the most lively affairs of the year in
Ttlie athletic line.
About the time of the freslimeu meet,
the varsity squad, consisting of five men,
will have been chosen. Hayward says
that meets can be arranged with Wash
ington and O. A. C. if the men show
enough interest. Should the meets be
held wrestling will become a major sport
and letters will be awarded. If meets
are held. Simola, being a senior, may take
part as a member of the team which will
represent Oregon. He has been on the
Oregon varsity wrestling, team and took
part in a meet agajnst Washington sev
eral years ago but was unable to com
plete the season on account of enlistment
in the army. He is regarded as one of
the best wrestlers in the northwest and
will he. without doubt, Oregon’s mainstay
in a contest.
Among those in the classes who are
especially well prepared for varsity are
Dick Shim of Ashland and Bob Sheppard
of Portland. Adams und Norton are. the
heavy weights and several dark horses
are said to lie in the field.
Freshmen wrestlers who are among

PURS FOR EUROPEMV
TOUR FAST MATURING
Party of Girls Wiill Be Made
Up This Month.
Plans for a two months tour of Eu
rope, to be conducted by Miss Elizabeth
Fox, dean of women, and Miss Julia
Burgess, professor of rhetoric, are near
ing completion and University girls who
long for a glimpse of “the great, wide,
beautiful, wonderful*\vorld,” and who can
spend next summer visiting such parts of
i it as the battlefields of France, the ruins
of Rome, and the lakes of Scotland, are
asked to make their reservations soon as
the party is to be organized in January.
Original plans were for a group of six
teen to make the tour but if more of the
University girls can go, Dean Fox as
sures that they will not be disappointed
for she says, “It will be an Oregon
party and the more the merrier.” It is
a trip which will be first of all, pleasant,
but will also be educational.
The itinerary has been planned to be
gin with a week’s sightseeing in Paris
nnd an excursion to Versailles, and will
include a sail on Bake Geneva, visits to
Genoa. Rome, Florence and Venice. In
England trips will be made to Oxford,
Eaton, Windsor Castle and Stratford-on

had experience in European travel. Miss
Fox spent a year and a half in Europe
during the war as a Y. W.'C. A. secre

itinerary. Miss Burgess has also spent

wil] add interest and profit to the party
by explaining historical facts concerning
the places visited.
The trip has been planned primarily
in the interests of girls from the Univer
sity, and Doan box and Miss Burgess are
anxious that the purty can he made up

NOW IS DRASTIC'
Dismissal From Class Penalty
for Excessive Absence
SYSTEM OF GIVING
POSTS IS CHANGED
Dean to Pass on All Cases
Under Plan As Just
More drastic cut regulations than have
"hitherto been in force were adopted last
night by the school of commerce. The
•new regulations are to be enforced in
that department, effective at the begin
ning of this term, according to the an*
liouncemcut made by Dean E. C.’ Bob
Fnexcnsod absences will henceforth
constitute a serious obstacle in the way
of securing passing grades. Excuses will
not be issued by tin* instructors but
must come from the dean of the school.
The following explanation of the new
system was issued last night over, the
signature of Dean Robbins:
Unexcused absences to the extent of
more than one week’s work in atiy course
means immediate dismissal from the
course with a grade of P.
In a three hour course four uneg*
cused absences means dismissal with e a
grade of P.
In a four hour course five unexcuaed
absences means dismissal with a grade
In a five hour course six unexcused
absences means dismissal from the
course, with a grade of F.
Students will be posted for unexcused
absences as follows:
In three hour courses the first post
will be sent on th. second unexctittd ab
sence and the second post on the third
unexcused absence. -' .
In four hour courses^ one post will bf
sent ou the third unexcused absence, and
the second post on the fourth •unex*
In five hour courses, the'first post will
be sent on the fourth unexcused absence,
and the second post on the fifth unfo
An unexcused absence means a sub
stantial decrease in the final grade of
Instructors do not have the right to
excuse absences. All such excuses must
be secured from the dean.
i Enrollment Expected to bo
2000 by End of Year.
Registration for the winter term which
includes between 100 and 200 new stu
dents will probably not far exceed the
fall enrollment, and although no official
statement has been made, Dean Straub
declares that he thinks the number will
reach about 2,000 for the entire year.
Among those registering are many for*
mer students who have been out < ■*'
school for some time, aud Dean Straub
says he has been kept busy shaking
hands with old friends. He further said
that while traveling over the state during
the Christmas vacation he encountered
many former students who were planning
to return to school in the spring term.
The three term system, according to
Dean .Straub, is making it possible for a
great number of students to complete un
finished years with greater ease. The
number of old students taking advantage
of this opportunity is increasing,
