Three New Chapters This Year.
The chapter on the Oregon campus is
one of the three chapters of the national
honorary voted into membership in the
past year, the other two being chapters
granted at the University of Michigan
and the University of Minnesota. Not
counting these three, there are 22 active
chapters of Flii Delta Kappa, in the lead
ing colleges and universities of the coun
try. T’he Oregon chapter is the fourth
to be established on the Pacific coast;
there being chapters at the University
of California, Leland Stanford Univer
sity. and the University of Washington
I'hi Kappa Delta, local educational
club, was founded about a year ago, with
25 students as members. The chief pur
pose of this organization, said Professor
C. A. Gregory of the education depart
ment, was to serve as a preliminary step
in securing a chapter of the national
honorary fraternity, which was recent
ly granted.
Three Types of Membership.
Phi Delta Kappa is a national educa
tional fraternity, the purpose of which is
the developing of more complete profes
sionalism, social scholarship, and pro
ductive scholarship among educators.
The organization carries three types of
memberships; active memberships, lim
ited to graduate students or students in
their senior and junior years who are
taking at least five semester hours in
education and who arc looking forward

In a game that was tied until the last
two minutes of play, Zeta Rlio con
verted two fouls and won from Thacker
cottage by a score of 18 to 16 Thursday
afternoon. Both teams fought hard, and
the game was one of the fastest of the
series. Gamma Phi Beta made her fifth
consecutive victory by winning from
Alpha Phi 33 to 7, the Alpha Phi team
being no match for the swift and well
organized Gamma Phi team, which seems
to be uudefeatable. Margaret Murphy
and Helen Nelson seldom miss a basket,
Wenona Dyer and Georgia Benson, cen
ters, keep the ball in safe territory, and
the guards, Alice Garretson and Edith
Herrin, cover their opponents effective
ly and prevent their scoring.
Lettic Biddle and Maud Largent, Zeta
Rho Epsilon forwards, played a pretty
game Thursday afternoon, but were all
but defeated by the Thacher forwards,
Adah Harkness and Irene Kendall, who
seemed to have a little the best of the
game until the end of the last half. Miss
Emma Waterman was referee.

Farce by Arthur Pinero Coached By
George Pasto.
“Playgoers”, a one act farce by Arthur
Pinero staged yesterday in Guild the
atre before the one. o’clock class in dra
matic interpretation, marked itself as
one of the best one-act plays given this
year. The play deals with the English
servant problem.
The farce was directed by George
Pasto, who also played as the Master,
as part of the work in the play-produc
ing class. One of the largest casts for
a one-act play given this year appeared
in the performance.
Members of the cast were:
Mistress .Marcile Oarlock

Parlor Maid .Helen Enoch
Useful Maid ..Mildred Lauderdale
House Maid .Alta Knox
Kitchen Maid . Alma Tracy
Odd Man .Darrel Larson

Coaches of the universities and col
leges of the Southern California Confer
ence will meet in Los Angeles March
10 to consider permitting freshmen to
play on varsity baseball teams. The
lack of available material has made this
8fflLt.com YET
Huntington or Bohler May Be
Chosen To Take Charge
of Ball Tossers.
Good Material To Be Found
In Varsity Subs and Frosh
of Last Year.
As yot nothing lias been done by the
athletic council toward securing a base
ball coach. It is probable, however, that
the choice will be made between “Shy”
Huntington and George Bohler. Hunt
ington coached baseball successfully last
year and has spring football training on
his hands this year and may not have
the time. If Huntington cannot take it
and the council is able to secure a man
to take Bohler’s place in the gym,
George Bohler will be asked to take over
the baseball situation. What other al
ternatives the council may have in mind
are not yet known.
Prospects Seem Bright.
However, if a coach can be secured
in time, baseball prospects seem bright
for the ensuing season. Seven letter men
are back and sdtne excellent material
available from last year’s frosh nine.
Captain Bill Reinhart expects actual
practice to begin in a few days if the
weather holds good and is fairly opti
mistic in regard to building up. a win
ning aggregation. Bill played in the out
field last year, is a good hitter and a
consistent fielder and is all ready to go
again. The heavy hitting of Bill Steers
will be missed as Bill will not be back
with his big stick. There is also scant
possibility that Carl Knudsen will ap
pear in a baseball uniform as he is a
stellar performer in the 220 low and
the 120 high hurdles and will probably
devote his attention to track where he
is sadly needed. Knudsen’s absence will
leave a hole as he is a very valuable
player, fields his position well and hits
consistently. In addition he is a south
paw pitcher of no mean ability.
John Gamble, former letterman in base
ball, will be in line for a berth in the
gardens. Johnny was a sub on last
year’s team and should make a strong
bid for a regular position this year. An
other good man who will be working
hard for one of the field positions is Jin}
Say. Jim plays ball all the time but
lacks varsity experience. Zimmerman of
last year’s fro.^i nine, will also make an
appearance in a suit when varsity prac
tice is called.
Infield Will Be New.
An entire new infield will cavort
around the sacks for the,’21 varsity.
Herm Lind, Oregon’s star first sacker
and homerun specialist, graduated with
the class of ’20. “Railroad” Smith, who
played first for the frosh will probably
be called on to fill Herm’s shoes. Ralph
made a good showing last spring and
should be able to fill ’em up. The
guardian of the keystone sack will prob
ably be selected from among the fellow -
ing: Art Base, Francis Beller and Bill
Collins. Art has freshman baseball ex
perience behind him, while Beller and
Collins were out for the varsity last
year. Vince .Tucobberger, who held
down the second sack a year ago, left
school in the fall and will not be back.
“Skeet” Manerud performed at short
for the 1820 nine, but “Skeet” is in
business and it is likely that “Hube”
.Tucobberger, Svarverude, or Jimmy Ross
will pick them up around that position
in his place.
Both “Hube” and Svarverude played
with the claas of ’23 while Jimmy Ross
made a great showing in doughnut base
Four Pitchers Back.
The pitching staff should be a strong
one. Art Berg, one of the best port
siders on the coast, will be on duty with
the varsity, while .Take Jacobson, anoth
er varsity man is also on the job. Jake
is a big right hander, with a good rec
ord behind him and should be due for
a big year. Dick Shim, last year’s re

Big Time Is Assured Those
Who Attend Jinks.
The sophomores are planning to make
merry. The lottery list for the annual
sophomore jamboree is out and it is
now open for dates of the 1923 variety.
The lottery was published last night,

Copies of the list were sent to all of the
different houses, and lists posted on the
bulletin board for those not living in
“Itough neck affair — real music —
Monday night — eight o’clock — men’s
gym,” said Tom Murphy, class president,
laconically in describing the affair.
“That’s all we’re telling now, except
that a good time is guaranteed with each
couple that sets foot inside the gym.”
There is, however, a superabundance
of men in the sophomore class. These
men ,who are not included in the list,
l will be allowed to bring girls of their
own choosing. “Make it snappy,” is
the final advice of the committee to
those who have lottery dates. “Call up
your lady and get all your plans made
for a ‘regular’ time.”

By n spectacular rally in the last five
minutes of play, the University of Cal
ifornia basketball quintet defeated the
Oregon varsity by n 26 to 22 score, at
the Armory last night. Oregon took the
lead in the first period and maintained
it throughout the contest, until the final
spurt of the Bears which the Oregon de
fense was unable to stop.
The game was cleanly played and Was
the fastest which has been played on the
Oregon court this season, being featured
by stellar passing and sensational bas
kets by the members of both quintets.
The visitors played the short pass and
close-in shots at the V baskets, Oregon
using the long pass with long shots for
their points from the floor.
Coop Point Getter.
Coop was responsible for the major
ity of points which the Bears chalked
up, scoring five field goals and two free
throws, making in all 12 points. Douthit
in the other forward position scored six
points for the blue and gold, while Lar
key, Eggleston, Le Hane and Symes
garnered one field goal. Coach Wight
used six men during the game, starting
Coop at the forward position and sub
stituting Symes during the first half.
Coop was ‘ afterwards substituted for
Symes in the latter period of the game
and was instrumental in placing his team
in the lead during the last few minutes
of play.
varsity up to standard.
Oregon played up to standard/ but the
smothering defense of California guards
kept. Durno and “Hunk” Latham from
scoring up to their old form. The Bears
used a five man defense to good pur
pose throughout the game and rarely did
the varsity forwards get an open shot
during the game. Both “Eddie” Dur
no and “Hunk” Latham had an off night
in ringing the baskets from the floor,
and the returns after tonight’s contest
may bn a different story.
“We were clearly outplayed in the
game, and the best team won,” Coach
G. M. Bolder of the Lemon-Yellow quin
tet said last night after the game. Prom
all appearances California failed to
open up in the Aggie contests at Cor
vallis as they did against Oregon here
last night.
Douthit Scores First.
Duothit for California, scored the first
field basket a few seconds after the
opening of the game, Mare Latham fol
lowing with one for Oregon shortly after.
Captain Durno put Oregon in the lead
with a long shot from the center of the
floor shortly after this and then a per
iod of passing on the part of both teams
with neither getting in range of the
basket, ensued. Eggleston scored a sen
sational shot for California tieing the
score again and Coop managed to slip
one by, placing the Bears in the lead.
Frances Beller tied the score again
shortly after by a long throw from the
middle of the court. Oregon forged
ahead from this point, the first half
ending with the varsity on the long end
of a lfi to 1.1 score.
