of Varsity Football for Coming Seasoii
Aggie Spirit Undampened by
Southern Defeats; Rival
Teams Look Even
Frosh and Rooks iWill Battle
In Eugene Friday and
The two hardest games of the season
for the varsity quintet are scheduled for
this week-end at Corvallis, according to
George M. Bolder, Oregon basketball
coach. The Aggies are usually full of
pep and enthusiasm over the possible
prospects of beating Oregon, and the
intense rivalry between the teams is not
confined to football, both are putting
forth all their efforts to win the basket
ball games.
The Aggies have so far failed to win
any games in their conference schedule,
losing six straight contests but their
spirit is not dampened, according to the
reports that 1000 students met the train
which brought their defeated team back
from California the first of the week.
Both Stanford and California have fast
teams this year and that the Aggies were
defeated by thorn on their home courts
could hardly be taken as an indication of
the fact that the Aggies were weak this
Dope Favors Oregon.
Oregon has the advantage on the dope
sheet so far as the Willamette games I
are concerned, the lemon-yellow five
having vanquished the Willamette team
twice while the Aggies dropped two in a
row to the Methodists. Oregon lost
their first game of the season to the
Multnomah club team in Portland while
the Oregon Aggies went to Portland
and defeated the Multnomah five.
Coach Bolder will start his squad in
on a stiff practice schedule at the Arm
ory tonight, after a two-days lay-off and
according to his present plans will also
select a few additional men from the
second string to be taken to Corvallis.
It is his plan to take about 10 men to
O. A. C., six of whom will be the men
who made the northern trip while the
additional four are yet to be selected.
Captain Durno, Marc Latham, “Hunk”
Latham, Chapman, Bellar, and Reinhart
will make the trip, and in all probability,
the same line-up which started against
the teams in the north will face the Ag
gie quintet.
Team In Good Shape.
No serious injuries were suffered by
any members of the squad while on their
taunt. The few minor bruises have been
fixed up and the team will be in good
physical condition to meet the Aggies.

Here; Winner Gets Medal.
Ralph Hoeber, of Portland, a junior in
the economies department, has been
chosen ns the University of Oregon rep
resentative in the Old Line Oratorical
Contest, to be held in Eugene on March
This contest, probably the oldest ora
torical contest in the northwest, is held
every year, in each of nine colleges in
lotation. The contest was held in Ore
gon in 1019, last year it was held in For
est Grove, and this year the E. B. U.
will entertain the contestants. John W.
Carter is to represent the E. B. U. in
the contest this year.
The Old Line . Oratorical Contests
have been in existence for about twenty
years. During this time the University

tests. Among the winners are Carlton
Spencer, in 1911; Walter L. Meyers, in
1016; Abe Rosenberg, in 1918; and
Fred Coley, in 1920. A gold medal is
given every year to the winner of this
Fred B. Smith, Business Man,
Appeals to Students
Frerf B. Smith, who will hold three
live meetings on the University cam

thrilling the college students on the
Northwest. Jde comes here from the
University of Washington, Washington
State College and the University of
Idaho. He is to speak next at the Ore
gon Agricultural College and then at
Smith is said to be in a class by him
self as a speaker to college students. He
talks and believes in Christianity but
judging from his writings lie has about
as much use for an evangelist as the
average college student has.
He appeals to the rational rather than
the emotional. He carries none of the
regular evangelist’s tricks of the trade,
no sob stuff about mother—no threats
of hell or lazy promises of heaven—no
scolding—no censuring of the joys of
And yet he gets results and is liked
and Relieved. Scores of decisions are
made for Christianity after his visits and
all discover a new anchorage of life.
Fred B. Smith is a business man—a
successful business man as the world
judges for he is vice president of a na
tional corporation, the .Tolins-Mansville
Company. He insists that business can
be, and must be Christianized.
This first meeting will be the eleven
o’clock assembly, the second for men
only, at five at the “Y” hut and a gen

Portland School of Medicine
Has Approved New
Preparatory Course For High
Schools Is Recommended '
By Committee
Plans for a seven year course in medi
cine, which is an attempt to unite the
premedical and medical years and to ob
literate the division commonly^existing
between the premedical, preclinical and
clinical studies, will be submitted to the
faculty at a meeting on Thursday, Feb
ruary 8, after having been approved
without dissect by the faculty of the
school of medicine in Portland on Janu
ary 8.
The course is designed to provide
sound training in the fundamental medi
cal sciences, and to provide opportu
nities for the liberal cultivation of the
social sciences and humanities. It will
be effective for entering freshmen in the
fall of 1921.
Three Years College Work.
Three years of this curriculum are to
be taken in the college of literature.
Science and the arts of the University in
Eugene, under the department of zoology,
and four in the medical school in Port
land. As outlined in this curriculum, the
first three years must be satisfactorily
completed before admission to the fourth
year, and, upon satisfactory completion
of the first four years, all students are
eligible for the degree of Bachelor of
Arts or Bachelor of Science. A mini
mum of 135 term hours, plus six in phy
sical training, are provided for during
the first three years; and these, togeth
er with the fourth year in the medical
school itself, fulfill the requirements for
the degrees, provided that the candidates
for the Bachelor of Arts elect two con
secutive years in one foreign language.
The curriculum provides for the neces
sary 30 hours in science for the Bachelor
of Science degree.
Candidates Must Finish.
The requirements for these degrees
must be satisfied before admission to the
work of the sixth year. This applies
also to students from other institutions
who desire to enter the course in medi
cine with advanced standing. Every can
didate for the degree of Doctor of Medi
cine must finish the seven year course,
and while students properly qualified
may be accepted from other institutions
with advanced standing, the seventh year
must be taken in the University of Ore
gon Medical School.
The committee on admission will be
composed of representatives from both
academic and professional years, and
will act also upon petitions for advanced

Choice of Athletic
Council Unanimous
After Long Session
Nibs” Price, Recommended By Committee,
Voted Down; Four Hours Spent In Delib
erations; Salary Increase to be Given
Mentor for Next Year.
Charles “Shy” Huntington will be coach of varsity football next year. *
This decision was reached by the athletic council after a four-hour sCMloH '
yesterday afternoon. Huntington was unanimously re-elected to the position he
ins held for three years past, after the council had debated two hours apt) a.
ialf in executive session, which was proceeded by an open meeting at which.
petitions and views of various students were offered in an attempt to aid this
rouncil in makiug its final decision. , : j '
Huntington will be offered an increase in salary for bis services during the
omiug year, but there will be no contract arranged. In explaining this detail,
Professor Howe, chairman of the athletic council said that Huntington’s poai*
ion in the University was similar to that of any member of the faculty of tM
University, and that no contract would be arranged. ,
Although reports of the executive session of the council are meagre. Pretty t
sor Howe said that but one vote was taken, and that a unanimous vote of cob*'
fidence had been given Coach Huntington * ! ,
Central Employment Bureau
Would do Away with Personal
Touch, Say Deans of Oregon
Oregon is not yet ready for a voca
tional bureau which would centralize the
work of the various school on the cam
pus in placing their graduates in posi
tions. Deans of all departments inter
viewed are unauimous in their belief that
students can be placed more economi
cally, expeditiously, and advantageously
under the present system whereby each
school takes care of its own graduates.
“We are not yet ready for such a
localized system,” said Dean Dymeut
when referring to the success of the vo
cational bureau at the University of
Washington. “Oregon is yet/a small
j school, and can take care o^ its gradu
| ates under the present system. The
I different departments would rather place
' their own students thau turn them over
to a placement bureau where they would
be listed merely as numbers. Each de
partment is interested in graduates turn
ed out and is in contact with the sources
of demand. The only advantage of such
a centralized placement bureau would
be that it would relieve to some extent
the work of the departments already
crowded for time.”
No Advantage Seen.
Doan Sheldon of the school of educa
tion sees no advantage in a placement
bureau. “I do not think any gain can
be accomplished by such an innovation
at present,” he said. “The placing of
our graduates can be brought about
more economically and expeditiously in
the manner in which we now handle it.”
Dean Sheldon said that a centralized
placement bureau would relieve his de
partment of much work, especially in
the summer, but said that the demand
for teachers now exceeds the supply.
“Should hard times come arid more per
sons take up the teaching profession such
a bureau would be of great advantage to
us,” said the denu of education. “As the
University grows, it will undoubtedly re
quire a more systematic provision for
finding employment for its graduates.”
Not Needed by Journalists.
The centralized employment bureau
would be an anomaly in its function to
wards the school of journalism, accord
ing to Dean Allen. “I know that the
newspaper men of the state would never
apply to such a bureau for trained jour
nalists when they are so intimately ac
quainted with me to call inc by my first

Washington Students Urged to Attend
Meeting Tonight.
All Washington students out for the
meeting of the Washington State Club
this evepfng at 7:30. At tonight’s meet
ing which will be held in the assembly
room of the Oregon building, definite
plans will be made for the dance to be
given within the next two weeks.
“We urge all students who come from
Washington to be at the meeting” said
“Doc” Braddock, president of the club.
“It will be the last opportunity this
term for them to join, and we are more
than anxious that everyone will be there
and get acquainted.”
The club, which was recently organ
ized, has about thirty “live wire” char
ter members, and after tonight’s meet
ing it is expected that practically every
one of the 87 students who are register
ed from Washington will belong.
California Expected to Have Large
Summer Session.
University of California, Feb. 1.—An
ticipating an increased enrollment in
summer session courses additional pro
fessors from universities all over the
United States have been secured to
serve during the summer session, ac
cording to an announcement made yes
terday by Walter M. Hart, dean of the
summer sessions. Dean Hart recently
returned from au intercollegiate confer
ence of summer session directors at
Northwestern University.
Among the prominent eastern edu
cators secured for next summer are
Professor Stewart Sherman, University
of Illinois; Professor G. H. Gerould,
Princeton; Professor Carleton Brown,
University of Minnesota, and Professor
Lough, New York University.

“Shy” was almost overcome when i4
heard the news. One of his dope
friends called him up soon after thevkr*
diet had been reached by the coinicU,
and the Oregon mentor’s voice over.tlit
wire was almost broken. He evidently
could hardly believe that the dedaldn
had been unanimous, for he asked If .M
were really the truth. When assured
that the decision was really unanimous.
“Shy” was quiet for a moment, and then
hung up the receiver.
According to Professor Howe, chair*
man of the council, the first indication
of the stand of the council came when
the report of the committee which had
been named at the last meeting and
given power to hunt a new coach,, whs
voted down by the entire council. T|w
committee recommended that the. cotU|*
cil elect “Nibs "Price, at present fUMttt*
ant. coach at the University of Califokr
nia, as head coach of the University jOf
Oregon. No contract had been mad,*
with Price, and the vote waa merely 4a
indication of the stand of the council oh
Huntington. Then followed the U$Ml*
mous vote of re-election for *‘8hy“
Salary Not Anaouasad.
The committee refused to give ont.the
salary increase that was voted Huhttajl'
ton. The executive council of the' asso
ciated students has yet to ratify th*
salary increase voted Huntington, but ft
is probable that this will he done today.
There seems to be no question but t^St
the executive committee will appro** th*
new salary, according to members of
the body.
Members of the athletic conned ad*
mitted that student sentiment aroused, iu
the lust few days did much to influence
the council in its decision. Letters, tel**
grains and petitions expressing sentiment
both against the graduate coaching ays*
tern and iu favor of it reached the coun
cil through various means. The.coun&l
made an effort to get as many views as
they could before last night’s meeting
according to members.
Council Met at 4 p. m.
The athletic council went into Motion
at 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon- Tjii
final decision was reached a few minutes
before eight. After a short executive
session, a joint meeting of the athletic
council and the executive council wttf
held at which all petitions were pre
sented, and members of the student
body allowed to state their views. A pe
tition from the business men of Eugene
was first offered by Professor down,
who said the petition had been placed tp
his hands. Retny Cox then presented a
