Committee Named by Presi
dent Savage Considering
new plan will be
In Tentative Form Now; Much
Time Spent Formulat
ing Ideas.
Radical changes in the present consti
tution of the- associated^ students, which
will probably affect the entire system
now used, are being considered by a com
mittee of students appointed some time
ago by Carlton Savage, A. S. U. O. pres
ident. upon the recommendation of the
executive council, which was Vested with
authority to make a complete investiga
tion of the present student government
and to recommend any changes which it
thought advisable to the students for
consideration at the regular meeting of
1 lie student body in March.
The committee, consisting of four stu
dent members and four members of the
faculty and alumni who servo in an ad
visory capacity, is not yet ready to an
nounce the amendments which it will
submit, to the students in March, the
complete plans being yet only in :i ten
Juiive state and subject to changes.
Other Plans studied.
According to Wilbur Carl, chairman of
the committee, about three months has
boon spent in drawing up plans for the
changes which it. was th night advisable
to propose, during which ’ ime the ••cn
stitutions and the government plans of
other institutions yave been investigated
with a view to incorporating the best
features of other schools in the new sys
tem for Oregon. A representative was
sent to O. A. 0. to investigate the plan*
of student government, at that institu
tion, while correspondence has been held
with a great many representative col
leges in the country.
At present the new plan is only in a
tentative state, according to f'arl: A
sub-committee has been appointed which
will draw , up the plan which was ap
proved by the committee at its last
meeting, held yesterday afternoon, which
will be presented at the next meeting of
the entire committee, called for next
Wednesday. Should the plans as drawn
up he approved they will then be an
nounced, according to the chairman.
Council Starts Move.
The movement for a change in the A.
S. IT. O. constitution came from the exe
cutive council and was given a hearing
at a meeting of the student council some
time ago. The committee named by
President Savage consists of Wilbur
• 'nil, chairman; Lyle Bryson, secretary;
Vivian Chandler, president of the wo
man’s league, and John Houston, vice
president of the student body. Savage
also serves as a member of the commit
tee. Faculty and alumni members are
Lean Colin V. Dyment, Karl Onthank,
Marion McClain and Dean Walker.
According to Carl, a member of the
executive council, where the movement
started, it was felt that the present
form of government needed more co-or

Dean Straub Announces Action Taken
By City Officials to Prevent
Dangerous Practice.
The city streets of Eugene shall not
be used as a baseball diamond, gridiron
nor basketball court. This edict has
(gone forth from the city officials, and
'prevents Students from exercising the
<<ommon practices of playing catch and
passing, a pigskin upon the city tlioro
I fares.
This action, which is announced to
i University men by Dean John Straub.
( has been taken by Chief of Police Chris
tensen in order to prohibit what is said
to be becoming a dangerous practice.
Students, according to the chief of po
liece, make it a habit to play catch upon
streets where there is considerable traf
fic, thus placing their personal safety in
jeopardy and hindering those who use
the thoroughfares. Recently a passing
automobile \«is struck by a baseball, the
windshield of the car being broken and
'the occupants narrowly escaping injury.
This, and similar accidents which
'have occurred have led to the blanket
ruling prohibiting the playing of catch
or passing or kicking of a football upon
the streets. Devotees of these various
sports will be forced to confine their ac
tivities to vacant lots, or places where
passers by and the regular traffic will
not be obstructed.
Committee Has Difficult Task
To Secure Coaches.
Twelve of the girls’ organizations on
the campus, have signified their intention
of competing in the series of inter-soror
dt.v debates which will take place next
term. Those who are entering are:
Alpha Delta Phi, Alpha Phi. Chi Omega,
[Delta Delta Delta, Delta Gamma, Gam
|ma Phi Beta, Hendricks Hall, Pi Beta
Phi, .Sigma Delta 'Phi, Zeta Rho Epsilon,
Kappa Kappa Gamma and the Girls’
.Oregon Club.
A committee consisting of one girl
from each organization has been ap
pointed to select coaches, and work up
the material for the teams. Those on
this committee are: Elaine Cooper,
(Helen Carson, Mildred Lauderdale, Ruth
Griffin, Thelma Lyons, Francis McGill.
[Elizabeth Meiis, Beatrice Hensley, Elsie
[Hildebrand, Gail Acton and Marjorie
“The girls find it very difficult to se
cure coaches, every one is so busy,”
said Marjorie Stout, chairman of the
coaching committee. However, five out
of the twelve organizations have suc
ceeded in obtaining coaches, and are be
;ing worked in earnest. Those who have
selected coaches are: Chi Omega, Miss
Julia Burgess: Delta Delta Delta. Remey
Cox; Delta Gamma, Professor Eldon
Griffin; Zeta Rho Epsilon, Ethel Wake
field, and Oregon Club, Professor George
Turnbull. *
The question decided upon is, “That
; the provision of the present law im
posing Panama canal tolls on American
coastwise vessels should be repealed.”
Speeches are to be eight minutes in
length with four minutes for rebuttal.
The first series of debates will be held
1 the first week in April. -
No! She Does Not Box; Other#
Ways to Obtain Black Eyes
1 lie appearance on the campus of a
'’°y with a black eye excites little or no
comment. It is taken for granted that
ho has been indulging in one of the many
sPorts in which boys bat one another
about as if they were tin soldiers with
leaden weights in their feet.
It is an entirely different matter, how
ever, when a girl appears with the
above-mentioned “shiner.” True, it may
oot excite much audible comment, the
v ‘'eat majority of the students being too
l'olite even to mention it. Instead they
stand off and stare at such an unusual
phenomenon. ^ Stories are far more dis
i meting than comment especially if the
' h tim happens to be a> poor little frosh,
n '‘hiss which is always sensitive to every
aionee cast in its direction. Some may
1' ‘11 go as far as one professor who
^tupped in the middle of a recitation
"hh, "Miss-, where did you
g* t that black eye?” aud when duly iu
tonned hastened to add: “Of course I
knew you hadn’t been fighting.” An
other might wonder if a course in box
ing has been instituted in the new wo
man’s building.
As a matter of fact the trouble was all
over a little basketball game in which no
one was particularly to blame. The main
difficulty was that the frosh in a bas
ketball game was playing pimping cen
ter. a position entirely outside of her ex
perience; which, according to all time
honored principles calls for an individual
far above the average height, while this
particular center measured but five feet
three inches. She was just tall enough
to catch her opponent’s elbow squarely
<iu the eye,—which she did. By the end
of the game there was a fair sized moun
tain on that side of her face and the next
day it looked like a maple grove in
autumn. i
“Oh, well,” she said, “I don’t care. It
was worth it. We beat them 46 to 5.”

All Members of Organization
To Be Taken On This
University orchestra will give its first
■concert outside of Eugene in Cot
tage Grove high school auditorium on
Friday evening, February 18. under the
auspices of the Cottage Grove high
school. All the 35 members of the or
ganization will make the trip.
The program for the eweert is care
fully worked out, according to Rex Un
derwood. director of the orchestra. In
putting it together he tried to get all
possible out of the musicians and at the
,same time to make a well-balanced and
interesting program. In doing this he
carried out the plan with which he
started at the beginning of his work at
Oregon, that of not. making the whole
concert so heavy that it would bo .tire
some to the ordinary listener. The Cot
tage Grofe program contains several
heavy concert numbers but in between
them are placed lighter ones. Novelty
numbers such as a cello quartette, a
brass sextette and a musical vaudeville
skit are included to prevent lagging of
interest. Mr. Underwood is very well
satisfied with the program, he said.
shortly after the Cottage Grove con
cert it is planned to give a Sunday aft
ernoon concert in Villard hall in which
the central number will be a Greig Con
certo for piano played by Mrs. Jane
Thaeher accompanied by the orchestra.
'Part of Beethoven’s First Symphony
; will probnbly be included in the pro
gram. It. is also planned to give a home
concert before the spring vacation.
Instruments are being added to the
orchestra as they are purchased by Mr.
(Underwood with money from the instru
ment fund started with the proceeds of
the dance given last fall.

When Oregon meets California this
Friday and Saturday, it, will be a con
test for the const ■ championship. By
virtue of their win over Stanford at
Berkeley last Friday 86 to 24, and their
,victory over the Orpgon Aggies at Oor
ivallis last night 24 to If), the Bears have
|jumped into the lealership of the coast
The Berkeley quintet spilled the dope
last Friday by winning from the Stan
ford five, until then leading the confer*
Vnee with no defeats credited to them.
The score indicates that the game win
all in favor of California. Last night
i at Corvallis, the Bruins started, their
second team, but when the half ended 12
to 4 in favor of the Beavers, the south
erners were forced to get in and fight «■’
for a victory. The game ending 24 to
'19 indicates the fight put up by the vis
itors from Berkeley in the last half to
win the game.
Varsity Watches Bears.
Coach Bolder and the members of the
Oregon varsity squad left Eugene yes
terday afternoon and saw the California ,
five in action against the Aggies, on the
Corvallis court. The second game will
he played there tonight, when the south
erners will come to Eugene for a two
game series with the varsity.
That California is out to make a
strong bid for the conference title is evi
dent from the result of their last tyro
games. They started the Aggie game
with their second string quintet, evi
dently wishing to save their first string
ers for the two games with Oregon this
week-end here. This game does not of
fer much dope, on the comparative
strength of the varsity and the Califor
.nia teams on that account.
Little Is Known.
Other than the foot that California
walloped the Oregon Aggie quintet by
decisive scores in the two games played
at Berkeley during the early part of the
season, and the fact that the Bears brake
even with Washington in a two game
series at Berkeley, little is known of
.the comparative strength of the South
erners as compared to the varsity quin
tet. The dope sheet would apparently
'give the Bears the edge over the Lemon
yellow quintet and no easy game can be
expected in the series to be played here
.Friday and Saturday nights between the
two teams,
\ Washington defeated Oregon by a
jpretty wide margin in the two games
played at Seattle early in the season.
(They lost their first game to California
j and won the second contest by a few
| points. Oregon also defeated the Aggies
decisively, and the Washington games
r will probably have to be taken as the
only criterion of the ability of the blue
and gold quintet on the basketball
Bohler Works Squad.
'»Coach Bohler is putting the squad
through the paces this week and is mak~
ing preparations for sending his team in
fto the California games in the best pos
sible condition. He appeared to be well
'.satisfied with the work of the quintet in
the two Aggie games, although he stated
that the Aggies did not play as good a
i game here as they did in Corvallis the
week-end previous.
Oregon’s chances to climb to the top
of the Pacific Coast conference stand
lings depend a great deal upon the out
.come of tlie games thi^ week. Stanford
