Every Inducement Offered
to Learn Swimming
One of Finest Pools in Land
Ready for Practice
Spring is coming—that, is, if the
groundhog does not see his shadow to
day—and spring brings canoeing into
its own. Already couples, with their
pillows and paddles, have been seen
crossing the campus, unmistakably mak
ing for the mill race. A great deal de
pend^ upon the individual, hut at best a
canoe possesses but little equilibrium
and occasionally one has been known to
tip over.
It is on these occasions—and they do
happen—that the girl who can swim is in
the height of her glory. She can not
only rescue herself—but may succeed in
rescuing her partner also, and maga
zines are full of “they lived happily ever
afters” as a result of sonic one playing
the heroine.
The physical education department
wants to co-operate with the University
women and is offering ever y in
ducement—from the brand new pool to
the hair-driers that really work—for
women to learn to swim. They are firm
believers in preparedness and in the
fact that opportunity knocks just once
in awhile.
All Women to Swim.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Fri
day afternoons, any University woman,
whether she can swim like a fish or like
a bar of iron, is invited to spend a lit
tle time in the white-and-blue tile pool
between 3:00 i*nd 5:30. For those who
can swim, the invitation is all that
should be necessary. For others. Miss
Lucille McCorkle, a member of the
American Red Cross Life Saving Corps
is at the pool on those afternoons to in
struct you in the ways of the swimmer
and to pull you out whenever necessary.
The requirements for swimming are
very simple. First, Doctor Bertha Stu
art, in the physical education building,
must make a brief examination of hearts
and lungs. Then, the lab. fee, of $1.25
must be paid to cover the cost of suit
and towel laundry. Those who have al
ready paid their fee for other gym
nasium work need not pay it again. A
clean suit is provided for every girl.
Woolen suits are not allowed in the pool
fieeauso wool clogs the filter. Each girl
must bring her own rubber cap.
Pool One of Best.
Doily tests of the water in the pool
are made by Madeline Slotboom. Visit
ors may watch the swimmers at any
time by entering the balcony through
door 23 in the lower hall. Street shoes
are not to he worn on the tile floor.
The pool id" one of the finest, in the
country and swimming is the best all
around exercise, so the physical educa
tion department feel justified in urging
that nil women take advantage of the
opportunity offered them on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday afternoons.

Three Prominent Graduates In Favor of
New System for Athletics
at Oregon.
Three of Oregon’s prominent alumni
have officially stated they do not believe
the present system of coaching at the
University is a success and favor obtain
ing a new coach. Homer D. Angell,
president of the alumni association, said
“I think the final decision should rest
with the athletic council and their deci
sion hacked to the limit. I am opposed
to the graduate coaching system for
young western universities.” Angell is
opposed to hiring high priced coaches.
Coaching salaries should be in keeping
with professors salaries, up to $6000, he
thinks. If another man can be secured
at approximately 1 ho some salary, he
should be obtained, stated Angell.
.Jack Latourette. one of the greatest,
quarterbacks Oregon has produced, says
he is.-opposed to the graduate system.
“Never in the history of Oregon, in the
two trials of the graduate system made,
has it. been a success. There is not
enough available material from which to
select a graduate coach, and the men
do not learn enough about football
while playing to be able to teach and
coach in later years.” If the time should
come when Oregon had a large number
of first class football players from
which to select coaches. Latourette said
he would favor the graduate system. “I
do not think Huntington is a first class
coach, and he is not the proper man for
the position.” Latourette did not favor
Hobie, but believes Price is an excellent
man for head coach.
Oliver Houston, ’10. graduate of Yale,
and at present well known lawyer in
Portland, said that although Huntington
deserved much credit, he is opposed to
the graduate system. The athletic coun
cil should do its best to unify Oregon,
and if necessary the salary of the new
conch should go as high as $7500, said
Houston. “Ff a good man can he ob
tained at approximately the same price
there is no gain in retaining Huntington”
said Houston.
Philosophy and Religion to be Subject
Wednesday at 7:15.
Dr. George Rebec, head of the Port
land center of the extension division, will
speak at the “Y” hut Wednesday even
ing at 7:15 on philosophy and religion.
Dr. Rebec is a specialist in philosophy,
holding a degree from the University of
Michigan. lie was at one time a mem
ber of the University of Michigan fac
ulty. He came west about ten years ago
and bus been a member of the University
of Oregon faculty since then. Three
years ago (lie work in the extension di
vision became so heavy that he moved

Cox Is Questioned.
The members of the council then ques
tioned Cox as to the qualifications of
the signers, and was asked if he realized '
that practically the same conditions ex
isted in many other schools throughout
the country, whether the graduate coach
system was used or not. Cox said he
was unfamiliar with conditions at other
Carl Mautz then presented a petition
signed by thirty-five members of the
Freshman and varsity football squads of
this year, .which asked for the retention
r>f Huntington unless a coach of national
reputation could be secured. Mautz at
tacked the methods used by the council
in going after a new coach, saying that,
no attempts had been made to secure
a coach of national reputation outside
qf Dobie and Bezdek.
The members <iT the committe which
had been named by the athletic council
to secure a coach then read off a list of
names of coaches of national prominence
with whom they had been in correspond
ence. Besides f)obie and Bezdek. Wil
liams, Metcalf, Steihm, Miller, McClaren,
Smith, Owens, Yost, Roper, Bierman,
Sanford, Richards, Zuppke, Higgins,
Heisman and Roekhey were approached
by the committee, according to letters
which they offered to show to anyone in
terested. No offers had been made any
of these men, said the committee, but
they had written each in an effort to get
in touch with them and find out their
willingness to come to Oregon.
Frosh For Fair Deal.
Speaking for the freshmen football
men. Charlie Parsons declared that the
members of the first year eleven had
come to Oregon because of the reputa
tion of the school for sportsmanship and
fair play, and that the players on the
freshman eleven of this year who would
be varsity candidates next year wanted
to see Huntington given a fair deal by
the athletic council.
Huntington’s record and ability as a
coach was upheld by both Mautz and
Parsons, both of whom also attacked the
man recommended by the committee of
the council named to look for a new
coach. Parsons said that the members
of the freshman squad wanted a chance
to work under Huntington, whom, lie
said, had the confidence and respect of
the first year men.
“Spike” I.eslic. two year letter man on
the varsity eleven, who asked to appear
before the council said that he was
ready to back the choice of the athletic
council whoever he might be, but that he
had come to the conclusion that it might
be better for the University of Oregon
to change coaches.
The members of the athletic council
are: Professor PI. C. Howe, Dean John
Bovard and Bill Hayward, faculty rep
resentatives; Dean Walker, David Gra
ham and A. R. Tiffany, alumni repre
sentatives, and Billy Reinhart, Glen
Walkley, Si Starr and Carleton Savage,
student members. Graduate manager
Marion McClain and President Campbell
are ex-offi’cio members.
