MO, 01 LOST,
Sweaters Nc.t To Be Given
for Women’s Baseball;
Others Carry.
Change Said To Be Essential;
Budget System Given As
Strong Point.
Tlie student body meeting yester
Voted not to award swoaters for
participation in girl’s baseball.
Voted to increase the size of the
I basketball letters.
Voted to give tennis players a letter
,or winning with one team in a Pa
cific coast meet.
Voted to decrease the size of the
debate and oratory pins.
Voted to award the members of the
student body orchestra a pin.
{Presentation and discussion of the
new constitution.
Baseball was voted not to be included
among the girl’s athletic activities which
receive student body awards, and sweat
ers will not be awarded for participation
in this sport. The amendment read that
a sweater should be presented to any
girl playing seven innings in an inter
collegate game, and was presented by
Emily Perry. It was almost unanimous
ly voted down by the men.
Eddie Durno presented the amendment
providing for the basketball letters .to
be increased in size from 4x5% xl inches
to a letter r>i/2xGy2xl % inches which
is one inch smaller than the letter award
ed for track. Basketball has become
more of a major sport, said Eddie, since
the size of the letters was designated
and it is also something to go through a
conference season of 22 games, so I
think the men should .get more recogni
tion for their work.
Tennis Requirements Changed.
The amendment providing for tennis
letters to be given for winning w’itli one
team in a Pacific coast meet was pre
sented by Lyle Bartholomew. Hereto
fore, it lias been necessary to win a Pa
cific coast championship in order to re
ceive a letter.
Elaine Cooper presented the amend
ment which allows the. size of the de
bate and oratory “O” pins to be reduced
to a smaller pin which will be more con
venient to wear.
Since the orchestra has become a stu
dent body activity, said Ralph IToeber,
[who presented the amendment, they
should have recognition for such, so I
think the student body orchestra should
have a pin. The pin voted upon will be
a triangular shaped pin with the name
orchestra written across the top, IT. * f

Revisions Are Explained.
In speaking of the matter of the new
constitution Wilbur Carl said: “The
nresent constitution baa no coordination
all with present conditions. It was
.ade to servo a student body of 500 and
^entirely inadequate to serve a student
^:y that is more than three times
®rger. The new constitution provides
for a budget system for all branches of
student activity, with an executive coun
cil which represents each branch of stu
dent activities to have charge of a'd ex
penditure of student body funds.”
We have presented this newly draft
ed constitution to President Campbell,
*° the faculty, to Professor Howe, chair
man of the athletic council, to the alum -
Bae and to different members of stu
dents engaged in student activities, and
they have all expressed their approval

Torch and Shield No Longer Exists As
Result of Improperly Con
ducted Dance,
Torch and Shield, sophorome society,
which was organized on the campus April
i l l, 1012, is no longer in existence, as
the mult of action taken by the student
advisory committee regarding an im
properly conducted dance held at the
C ountry Club last January.
The cause of the student advisory com
'mittee’s complaint was that some p ere on
or persons placed intoxicating liquor in
the punch. The edict of the committee
.was that Torch and Shield must either
surrender the names of the guilty parties
within two weeks, or disband.
No action was taken on the part of
the society, and the two weeks elapsed
without any report upon the matter. The
officers of the club were then ordered to
disband the organization, and according
to E|oh Sheppard, its president, this ac
tion has been carried out.
The order issued providing the dis
bandment of the club further provides
that the members of the organization will
not be allowed to join any other similar
organization during their collegiate
course. The disbandment of the society
is regarded by the committee as the com
pletion of the affair.
“King of the Castles” To Be
Seen In Guild Theater.
Because of many requests coming from
those who were unable to secure seats
for its first performance or who wish to
see it again. Anna Landsbury Beck’s
operetta, “King of the Castles,” will be
repeated in Guild theater by the Univer
sity high school students on Friday even
ing and Saturday afternoon, March 18
and 10. The operetta was first produced
in the Eugene theater last Friday. The
proceeds of the coming performance will
go to the high school athletic fund; ac
cording ho Mrs. Beck.
The change from the Eugene theater
to the smaller one will necessitate a re
adjustment of the scenery which will be
made as soon as the “Mikado” scenery is
cleared away.
'Much favorable comment was caused
at the ti.me of the initial performance by
the scenery and the costuming. All the
designing and making of the scenery and
the costumes was done by the art de
partment of the University under the di
rection of Miss Helen Rhodes, according
to Mrs. Beck.
“The whole operetta was designed to
be a co-operative scheme and the art
department met its part in the fullest
measure and is deserving of the highest
praise,” said Mrs. Beck. “I wish to
make grateful acknowledgement, of the
services of the department and the in
spiration received fuom them without
which it would not have bgen possible
to have many of the beautiful effects,”
An example of the hard work done in
making the costumes, Mrs. Beck said,
were the headbands worn by the pirates
in Act III. These were all hand deco
The work of costuming and making the
stage settings was assigned by Miss

“Mothers of those in the cast gave

struction of the costumes,” Mrs. Beck
said, “and the support received from
everyone, including members of the east
made the production^ possible and gave
me niemory of lasting leasure.”

With many candidates nut for all of

(working out during the greater part of
.this term and are beginning to get in

workouts are taking place, and the men
(have been asked by Coach Bill Hayward
(to do some training. The real training
will not start until the first part of
next term, and by that time the men
will be in fair pre-season shape. The
bad weather has been a handicap this

Review for Purpose of Judging Rank
ing; Colonel Falls Visit
ing Officer.
f The preliminary inspection which will
(determine whether or not Oregon will be
among the colleges in the Ninth Corps
Area (R. O. T. C.) who will receive a
ifinal inspection to determine the dis
tinguished colleges of the United States
/was held Wednesday by Colonel Falls,
(Ninth Corps Area inspecting officer.
' The inspection began with a review of
(the battalion by Colonel Falls, Major
I Baird, commandant of the local unit",
Colonel Partcllo, commandant of the O.
A. C. unit, Major Rowland, assistant to
Major Baird and Major Hartwell of O.
/A. C.
' Colonel Falls then inspected, individ
ually, the cadets and' their equipment.
/After this inspection the battalion was
(dismissed until 2:15. A luncheon was
/given in Hendricks hall by Dean Fox in
i^honor of the inspecting officer and other
(visiting officers. The guests were Col
onel Falls, Colonel Fartello, Major and
Mrs. Hartwell, Major and Mrs. Baird,
President and Mrs. Campbell, Major
(Rowland, Dean Fox and Dean Dymeut.
i At 1 p. m. Colonel Falls inspected two
;of the machine gun classes. At 2:15 the
l|battalipn was again formed. After a
parade, which was held on the drill
(field, the problems of an advance guard
/was taken up. In regard to the results
of the inspection Colonel Falls said: “I
am very much pleased to note the im
provement in the unit.” There will be.

as distinguished colleges from the Ninth
Corps Area and according to the Colonel

P. E.’s Propound Poems to Put
Pep, Punch, and Pulchritude
Into the Poor Plodding Pupils
Aslies .to ashes.
And dust to dust
If pink pills won’t cure you
Then poetry must!
This apparently, is the theory of the
r. E. department, for it has burst into
Stern and austere in its administra
tion of University health, the I’. E.’s have j
in their leasure moments been courting
the muse. The last issue of the Univer
sity Health Bulletin opines, vociferates,
admonishes and advises in poetic strains
that would make Homer throw his halo in
the scrap heap.
Rivaling Robert W. Service the health
bulletin delivers a philosophical message
in the following epic:
“I hate to be a kicker
I’d rather stand for peace;
But the wheel that does the squeaking
Is the wheel that gets the grease.”
The bulletin, in ordinary prose, proves
the statement .that “Spring has Came”
with the intelligence that 2”> cases of
poison oak were treated in one week.
Question; how to avoid said dread inlec
tion, and the P. E. Poet sweeps his iyie
and emits the following:
Poison Oak was all around,
But Mary had no fear,
She walked right on without a sound
But Jane was on her ear.
Mary had been wise, you see,
And rubbed in lots of cream
Rut Jane had said, "You can’t tell me,”
Her face is now a scream.
Hardly content with such drivings into
the realm of the soul, upon the succeed
ing page, is narrated the effects of a
balanced diet, thus:
There was a poor student and what do
you know
He went to everything from the dance
to the show.
(Then his plan he did change to):
Early to bed and a balanced diet
His grades were all ones, why won't you
try it?
Tn keeping with the unordinary tone
of the bulletin symbolic initials take the
place of dashes which separate the dif
ferent articles. “BH-BS-GU” they read.
These stand for “Better Health—Better
Scholarship—Greater University.”
Incidentally, the bulletin contains a re
port of the activities of the infirmary for
February,-. 1921. Women’s cases totaled
190, and men’s cases 222. A total of
1223 calls were made for various treat
ments at the infirmary, uninelusive of
bed patients.
The bulletins, although not circulated
broadcast, is accessible to nil. Extra
copies are mimeographed, and those in
terested either in health or in literature
may have one for the asking. Verily, all
who lisp may read. >
Basketball Game To Be Hard
Fought, Says Coach.
The first women’s varsity basketball
game of the season will be played with
the Oregon Agricultural College team at
Corvallis^ tomorrow. Miss Etama Water
man, basketball coach, recently refer
red the game in which O. A. C. won from
the University of Nevada, and says that
the varsity team will have to fight hard
if they win on Saturday. The O. A. O.
team has been organized for some time
and besides the Nevada game have played
several high school games, while the
Oregon girls have been playing together
for less than a week.
Charlotte Howells and Helen Nelson
will start the game as forwards, Maud
Largent, jumping center, Lucy Vander
Sterre, side center, and Dorothy McKee,
and Emily Perry as guards. The sub
stitutes who will accompany the team to
fCfrvallis Saturday are Oletta Peder
sen, forward, Sarah Martin, center and
Eloise Harris, guard.
“Tho varsity team has been working
very hard the past week,” said Miss
Waterman, ‘‘and I feel sure they will
be able to make a showing against the
Oregon Agricultural College team. They
have all worked very faithfully, practic
rfng every night since the doughnut league
A great many girls tried out for var
sity after the conclusion of the dough
nut series, and it was not until the first
of the week that a definite choice of the
team was made. Miss Waterman ex
pects a hard game Saturday. The O. A.
O. guards and forwards are very tall,
she said and the squad has a longer time
in which to develop teamwork. How
ever, the individual players on the Ore
gon team have been playing in the dough
nut and class practices, and will put the
finishing touches on their teamwork in
the practice tonight.
The team, accompanied by Miss Water
man and Miss Maud Lombard, instructor
in physical education in the Eugene
schools, who will referee the game Sat

Girls Hold Preliminaries To
v Final Contest.
| Practically the only difficulty in se
lecting the class teams to take part in
the women’s interclass swimming con
i' tests will be in the freshmen class. The
other three classes have but four each
trying out, and these will constitute the
class teams, although just what part
each will take will not be decided until
just before the meet. Ten freshmen wo
men are working hard in the advanced
swimming class under Miss Catharine
I Winslow, instructor in swimming, in
which special work in competitive swim
j ming is given.
The freshmen women trying out are
Harriet Veazie, Ruth Hayman, Star
Norton, Grace Caviness, Elizabeth
Strowbridge, Agnes Schultz, Muriel Mey
ers, Dorothy Blyberg, Elizabeth Pride
■ and Emily Houston. According to Miss
i Winslow, Emily Houston and Grace
I Caviness will probably represent their
class in the plunge for distance; Star
! Norton and Muriel Meyers, in the races
1 and Agnes Schultz, Harriet Veazie and
Elizabeth Pride, in dives. Agnes Schultz
has a good record in breast stroke for
! speed and for form.
' The seniors, juniors and sophomores,
1 have each four good all around swim
j mors working in the preliminaries to
the final meet, said Miss Winslow.
| Naomi Robbins, Ollie Stoltenberg, Maud
Largent and Ethel Murray are out for
the seniors. Helen Nelson, Margaret
Russell, Carolyn Cannon and Winifred
Hopson, for the juniors, and Frances
Moore, Wonoua Dyer, Marion Nicola1
and Frances McGill for the sophomores
All these have taken part in class or
varsity meets before. The only new
material turning out for swimming this
year belongs to the freshman class.

Both Members of *16 Team;
Election of Mitchell
Is Surprise.
Investigation of Expenses and
Time To Be Made; Var
sity To Be Consulted.
“Brick” Mitchell and "Barit” Spellman
will act ns assistant coaches to ‘Why”
,Huntington, University of Oregon foot
ball mentor as a result of the election
held at the meeting of the Athletic Coun
cil and the Executive Committee last
night. Spellman will act in his usual ca
pacity as line coach while the services of
Mitchell will be utiized in the training of
the ends.
Spellman has acted as assistant coach
to Huntington for the past two years
in the capacity of line coach and the re
election of “Bart” for this position was
considered probable. In securing of
Mitchell the Council is adding an addi
tional assistant to the present staff.
Mitchell Is Commended.
“Brick” Mitchell is a former Univer
sity of Oregon star, having played for
two years at the left end position on the
varsity eleven. lie was a member of the
some team with “Shy” Huntington and
“Bart” Spellman, the team which van
quished Pennsylvania at Pasadena for
the intersectional honors in 191(5. In 1917
Mitchell played with the Mare Island
Marine gridiron squad. His work with
the Oregon eleven won him a plane on
the mythical Pacific coast selections and
caused him to be rated by many critics
as one of the greatest ends in the United
Mitchell was assistant football coach
at Stanford during the season of 1919
and during the last season was head
coach of the Olympic club football eleven
at San Francisco. The selection of
“Brick” will mean a valuable addition to
the Oregon coaching staff.
Hawaiian Trip Opposed.
That there is considerable opposition
to the proposed Hawaiian trip among the
members of the Athletic Council and
the final answer to the invitation of the
University of Hawaii has been postponed
for further investigation of the expense
and time required to make the trip. Al
though faculty sanction was secured at
the meeting of the faculty last week, it
is understood that the trip will require
the members of the team leaving school
some two weeks before the final exam
inations of the fall term and they will of
necessity receive incomplet.es in their
Other reasons advanced by the oppo
sition were that Oregon would forfeit all
(chances to meet an eastern team in .the
inter-sectional game provided. that the
(varsity eleven should win the right to be
(the western representatives. No final
disposition was made of the matter and
lOraduate,Manager Marion McClain was
instructed to further investigate the ex
penses of the trip nnd the total amount
of time which would be required to take
the tour. A meeting will be called again
(in the near future at which the final
.vote will he taken on the matter. It is
iprohable that in the meantime the mem
bers of the football team will be sounded
out as .to their stand on the advisability
of taking the trip.
