THE PEEP SCHOOL ATHLETES.
> : No doubt every student of the University is willing and
anxious to do his utmost to bring the best of prep school ath
Ieted to Oregon. But at Kansas University, the athletic di
rector has evolved a scheme which might well be followed
rlpvcry Kausas student, upon leaving school for a vacation
ifl toketf to bring in the names of some high school athletes, j
#d as much of their history, playing ability and’genera I rec
ord as he can gather. These names and items are then turned
to the athletic director who promises to take a personal
interest in each, with the ultimate aim of bringing all prep
aphoo) athletes possible to Kansas University. This personal
IBWftjest is expressed through letters to tile preppers and per
ddnal meetings arranged wlienever possible.
, None of this is underhanded, but all open aud frank, the
jjVal institutions being well informed as to the intentions of
V At no tiihc* would the athletic director promise nnv ath
to te a n y special inducemept to attend Kansas University, but

the.prep school student is very likely to be drawn to the school

C>ver at O. A. V. it is rumored that a card index is kept of
eyery prep school athlete in the state and some outside of the
fityttf, with the intent of urging these men to attend the Cor
M iis institution. Unless some work is done bv the athletic
#frfirtmeut here, the “cream” of Oregon athletes may not
to Oregon as they have in the past.
• if any such attemps should be made bv the athletic depart
ment here, nothing should be “sub rose” because such a thing
smacks of underhandedness. Let the preppers know we want
them and that the athletic department is ready to help them
there is no doubt as to the result.
K Tile Oregaua drive is on. Last year the Oregon yearbook
lost money, which debt was turned over to the A. S. lT. (). The
for last year’s failure cannot he assigned to any one
' person any more than it can be laid at the door of all of us.
We, must have a yearbook, and to have it we must help fin

^f his college life. Be sure you order yours while the cam
paign is on lest von regret it in later years. And incident!v

Latest Addition Makes 12th
National on Campus.
Tbe twelfth national fraternity at Ore
gon was installed on the campus during
the holidays, when Chi Psi established
•its third chapter on the Pacific coast,
' The local chapter is composed of 16
men who were members of the S-Maral
da, a club organized on the campus in
the spring of 1911), and which was dis
’ olved at the end of last term. The ini
tiation took place in Portland during the
holidays and was conducted by the Ore
gon alumni of Chi Psi. The chapter has
established its lodge at the house pur
chased by the S-Maralda last year.
Chi Psi was organized at Union Co!
lege, in Schenectady, N. Y., in 1841, and
has 21 chapters throughout the country,
two of which arc on the coast, at Cali
fornia and Stanford.
The members of the new organization
are: George P. Shirley, Harold N. Lee,
Norman T. Byrne, Ralph L. Taylor, Ed
win P. Iloyt, Fred B. Michelson. Harold

Officers Chosen; Aims and
William «7. Kussis of Buyuti, Greece,
j lias been elected president of the I’os
j mopolitan club. .Julius Frohm, Germany
was chosen vice president, and Germaine
Dew, Paris, France, secretary-treasurer.
An outline of the officers and aims of
the Cosmopolitan club was given and
a suggestion that there should be no
racial distinction in the club was ap
proved by the members. The five aims of
the club are to give foreign-born students
a chance to become interested in social j
affairs on the campus, to give them a j
chance to associate with native-born J
Americans and to learn the customs and j
habits of this country, to bring about
better understanding between the differ
ent nations represented in this country,
through lectures by club members and di
rect correspondence between the Cosmo
politan club of the University of Oregon
and other universities of other countries
represented in the club, to give native
born Americans a chance to understand
-customs and habits of foreign peoples,
and to give students who are interested
in diplomatic service or missionary work
in foreign countries an opportunity to
become acquainted with the characteris
tics and ways of the people of other
There are three classes of members in'
this club. The first includes students and
faculty members who arc foreign-born,
and these arc the only ones eligible for
office. The second group is that of the
associated members. These are the
American-born persons of state or inter-,
national character. The third is made
up of honorary members who live in Ore
j gou and have great influence, and who
will contribute to the advertisement and
welfare of the organization.
Besides the president, vice president,
and secretary-treasurer, there is an ex-!
ceutive committee consisting of the three
officers and two other members appoint
ed by the president. There is also an
advisory board, consisting of two facility
members of foreign birtb. and the \\.
and Y. M. secretaries.
TflflEE *CT OPEREn*
WILL BE PRESENTED
Musical Production To Be
Given in Few Weeks,
‘•King of the Castles,’' a three-act
operetta-story by Anna Lahdsbury Beck,
member of the school of music faculty,
has just been completed and will be pro
duced by the University High school glee
club within the next six weeks or two
Mrs. Beck built the story around the
music material used in the regular high
school music course and the result is an
operetta suitable for production by high
school students and at the same time of
interest to older people.
“It is amazing to take set pieces as
•Mrs. Beck has done and weave around
them a plot which is within the radius of
a child’s understanding and ability to
produce, and in the sub-plot to preach
a sermon to everybody which even the
older people will be glad to receive, and
to tell the whole in such a simple and yet
charming manner,” said Madame Rose
McCrew, instructor in voice in the school
of music, after examining the manuscript
of the work. “The story holds an inter
est for everyone, young and old and has
a surprisingly fresh vein of humor.”
"The whole thing is to stand for a
scheme in education which can be desig
nated as a Project Plan,” said Mrs. Beck.
The story carries a mission expressed in
the working out of a double plot amply
supplied with humor and yet carrying an
underlying philosophy of life.
The students are taking a great deal
of interest in the beginning rehearsals
and are working hard, according to Mrs.
Beck. The posters and illustrations for
the programs are being made by the
and they are giving many valuable sn1"
gestlons regarding the production of tf
operetta itself. p
Suitable dances are being worked im
the operetta. ' Much attention is to J
given to the proper staging 0f the pr'
Unction and to the orchestral a ecom pay
ment, which >vill be arranged by Mr'
Beck, assisted by Rex Underwood! dire!
tor of the orchestra. A small orehentt'
selected from the University orc-bestr"
will furnish the accompaniment. #
