ulty would be glad at any time to help
the association in its work.
Dean Fox Optimistic.
Iloan Fox who formerly served
Y. W. O. A. secretary said that slu
not believe this association needed
much encouragement as it was appai
l.v at the very height, of its work. V
girls feel discouraged they should ah
be aide to turn to the Y.-W. O. A.
find new inspiration, she declared.
George CJerlinger, member of the 1)

National Secretary Speaks.
Miss Ruth Benson, ono of the national
secretaries, with headquarters j„ Seat
tle, told of the growth of the Y W O
A. work throughout the world during'the
past year. A new department has been
created with three secretaries who are
supposed to become personally ncquaint
in rvh.: i-00 for,'iR"ghLs 1,1 *•>.is
in the I n,ted States. Their work is to
establish a more friendly relation with
rnese foreign girls.
The classes in nursing that have been
established in China by the y. |\'. c \
luive had marvelous results.'said Miss
Henson enthusiastically. A -L"l (KM I„

“Sender is doing a thing when you

tion given by these girls.
Leadership Is Aim.
“Leadership is the thing that we want
to emphasize next year.” declared Miss
, Ibnsdalc, secretary. Other countries
need America, not only for food pro
luets, but for the tilings that American
■vonum can give them. "When I think of
he struggling little foyer in Italy with
which I was connected, just learning
the essentials of organization, it makes
me want to have the girls here think of
the fundamentals of Christian princi
ples,” she continued.
“Out of this association I expect these
things to come and it is this thing that
we must work for. We want to turn out
leaders,” Miss Dinsdale said in con
The different members of the cabinet
made their reports for the past year.
These repwrts showed the increasing
numher of activities entered, and the
much larger scale that the Y. W. C. A.
is working on.
“I am sure that we can make a suc
cess of next year by just being friends,”
said Eleanor Spall, * following the an
nouncement of her election as president
of the association.
VARSITY TRACK TEAM
PROSPECTS ARE GOOD
(Continued from rage 1).
University of Washington May 7. The
second trip will be made to Pullman
.Tune 4. at which time Oregon will enter
a team in the Northwest conference meet
Oregon should have a well-balanced
track team this year, and some good
men for the field events also. Five old
letter men are back in college, 'and
around this nucleus Hayward will have
to build his team. In the tv<o mile event
Oregon should be able to clean the coast
with Glenn Walkley sack on the job.
Walkley has had two years experience,
one with the varsity last season and one
the year previous with the freshman
team. He may also York in the mile.
Koepp will also try t'nj mile this year
for the varsity. Koepp ran with the
frosh track team in this event last sea
son and was good enough to beat the O.
A. C. rooks’ runners by a good margin.
Blackburn, who ran distance races for
the frosh last year is back.
Several Candidates for Half Mile.
In the half mile Oregon loses a good
man this year in Leith Abbott, who was
elected Inst fall to captain the team. He
will not return for college however. Pel
tier will probably do his first varsity
running this season in that event. Wayne
Akers may also run the half this year.
Akers has been out for two seasons and
is a good man. In the quarter Oregon
hns a number of good candidates. Two
Itiartcr mile letter men, Sundeleaf and
Havyslip are back and the two best frosh
men for this distance Collins and Lar
sen are out as well. These men should
make a good relay team for the Univer
sity. Oregon is weaker in the sprints
than in any other place so far. Oberteuf
fer and Hemenway are the best bets
now. In the hurdles Carl Knudsen should

be able fco show his heels to most of
them. Knudsen was a letter inan last
year. Two frosh hurdlers are back, Mc
Kinney and Ireland.
In the field events Art Tuck will prob
ably be back to do his part. Tuck is good
for a number of points in any meet in
the discus, shot and javelin. “Scotty ’
Straehan should be good for first place
in the shot this year. He lost to George
Powell of O. A. C. last year in the O. A.
C. meet by three-quarters of an inch.
Brown and Shields will also be out foi
places in the weights. Don Portwood
of last year’s varsity is again out for
the pole vault. Phillips and Ingele will
make him step this year to keep above
them. Phillips did we!l last year and
looks better this season. In the jumps
Oregon will not show so much class.
Nunn is fair at the high jump and l’.lack
aby is good.
[ The varsity will probably not send a
(team to the Columbia indoor meet this
year as it is to be held a week from
Saturday and the men will not he in
shape. It is probable that a frosh team
may go. *
POWELL TO REPRESENT WEST.

erning American football. The meeting
