“Spike” Leslie To Do Receiv
ing at Start; Other Batter
ies Likely to Serve.
aspirants MAY ALL
Opening Line-up Uncertain;
Visitors Have Strong Crew;
Pitcher Rated High.
Art Berg, veteran twirler, will be on
the mound for the varsity nine today
when the Lemon-Yellow team meets the
North Pacific Dental College in the of
ficial opening game of the spring sea
son. With “Spike” Leslie, the husky
catcher of the last year’s team, the bat
tery will be complete. The remaining po
sitions on the team are still unsettled
Coach Bolder refusing to make his se
lection of a line-up last night. It is
probable that Captain Reinhart, John
Gamble and Carl Knudscn will take care
of the outer garden, Reinhart in left
field. Gamble in center and Knudseu in
Infield Material Plentiful.
The infield positions, which have been
giving Coach Bohler a great deal of
concern lately .will be covered by some
seven or eight men before the game is
ended. Glos or Yeatch will probably
start on first, with Base and Beller al
ternating at the keystone sack. In the
shortstop position will probably be H.
.Tacobberger at the start while Bill Col
lins will probably work a part of the
game. On third the possibilities are
Svarverude and Liebe with the chances
for Svarverude to be in the line-up at
the start. A few others may get a
chance at the infield positions before the j
end of the game.
For utility batteries, Bolder will prob
ably use Jacobsen and Gray as twirlers
and Furrey and F. Shields behind the
|)at_A hard- gawe-ia--expected and it is
not likely that any of Coach Bohler’s
twirlers will last a full game.
Dentists Have Good Hurler.
For the dentists’ niue, Quizzenberry
• will be on the mound at the start. Quiz
zenberry is rated as one of the best
semi-pro pitchers in Portland and his
work against the Aggies early in the sea
son shows him to be a good twirler.
The dentists lost two games to the Ag
gies and have woh one game from the
Portland American Legion nine.
The North Pacific team will probably
line up as follows: Smith, shortstop;
McLaughlin, center field; Terry, catcher;
Salzer, first base; Narcnc, third base;
Quizzenberry, pitcher; Butler, second
base; Peppin, left field; Holscher, right
The game is called for 2:15 o'clock
'.sharp, and Ralph Coleman of Q. A. C.
will umpire. An admission fee. of 50
cents will be charged and student body
tickets must be presented, according to
Assistant Manager Benefiel.

Plans Outlined For Spring
Track and Baseball
A tentative plan for the spring intra
mural sports program was outlined by
Hank Foster and Coach George M. Boli
ler in the meeting of representatives of j
the various men’s organizations on the
campus, held in Bohler’s office Thurs
baseball. The “Order of the O” will
have charge of both doughnut track and
baseball and will officiate at the sundry
events. The plans fop- the track rmert,
on Saturday, April 30, outlined by Fos
ter, provide that no man on probation
may participate. Letter men will not i
be eligible to compete in their special
events. Candidates must also turn out
for track a certain number of times be
fore the meet unless already out for
baseball. The “Order of the O’ ’will
provide trainers to assist “Bill” Hay
ward in getting the men in shape. Bach
contesting organization is to have a cap
tain who will turn in a list of the men
going out and who will be responsible
for them. A man will be allowed to en
ter in two track and three field events.
The relay race is not included in the
track events. A silver loving cup will
be awarded the winning team and an in
dividual cup to the high point man.
The events are as follows: Javelin
throw. 1(> lb. shot put. pole vault, high
jump, broad jump, 100 yard dash, 220
yard dash, 440 yard dash. 880 yard
dash 220 yard low hurdles, 120 yard
high hurdles and the half mile relay.
Xo definite arrangements have been
made so far for doughnut baseball ow
ing to the delay in getting the new
fields in shape. According to previous
lilans five diamonds should he now ready
to play on. but nothing has been done
on them as yet. Coach Bohler hoped
to use the percentage system as in
doughnut basketball last fall, but if the
preparation of the fields is postponed
much longer it is probable that the phi
elimination system will be used. Funds
ate not at present forthcoming for the
much needed baseball equipment and the
organizations may have to furnish then
own. Men on probation will be allowed
to take part, but not baseball letter men.
Organization Technique of Commercial
Club Talked at Luncheon.
Questions on the technique of organ
ization were discussed at a luncheon
Thursday evening of the board of di
rectors of the University chamber of
commerce with Colin B. Brown of the
National chamber. Members of the Eu
gene chamber were also present.
Plans were also made at. the luncheon
for the exhibit of University products at
the Oregon Home Products exhibition
to be held in the Hampton building, in
Eugene, the first three days of next
week “Our chief exhibit will be our
boys and girls, because they are our
best product.” said Professor Franklin
Folts in discussing the plans for the
show Stereopticon views of University
activities are to be another feature, as
will also be an hourly bulletin to be pub
lished by students giving an account of
the work being carried at the exhibit.
New Head of Diamond Sport
to Succeed Student Who is
Absent This Term
Miss Perkins to Coach Varsity
Tennis—Three Places
Are Vacant
It’s spring — and the thoughts of tlio
the Women's Athletic Association and
the department of physical education
for women, are turning again to out
door sports. Baseball, tennis, canoe
ing an darchery are taking the place of
basketball and indoor apparatus work
and preparations are being made for a
big Field Day some time next month.
I1 ans for baseball have not been com
pleted since Dorothy McKee’s failure to
return to school leaves that sport with
out a head in the Women's Athletic As
sociation. Miss Emma Waterman, base
ball coach, urges, however, that the
houses organize for doughnut baseball
.and elect their captains immediately.
Doughnut games will be scheduled as
soon as possible, she says, although
nothing definite can be done until a new
head of the sport is elected. The of
ficial doughnut league baseball will be
the 12-inch outseam ball in place of the
;l6-inch ball which is considered stand
Varsity May Have Contest.
Besides the doughnut series, class
baseball teams will meet and an attempt
will be made to arrange a varsity game.
The final doughnut league game is one
of the events scheduled for Field Day,
when the two teams standing highest in
the league play for the. championship
More complete arrangements have
been made for tennis. Marianne Dun
ham, head of the sport, is very anxious
that as many experienced players as
possible sign up for varsity try-outs be
fore next Tuesday noon on the paper
posted on the bulletin board in the wo
men’s building. There are three places
to fill, since 'Madeline Slotboom is the
only varsity player back on the campus
this term.
, There will also be a “Round Robin”
tournament open to all girls, which will
culminate on Field Day, when -the W.
A. A. trophy, a tennis racquet, will be
awarded to the winner of this meet. A
paper is posted for this list also aud
anyone wishing to compete must sigu
m> before Tuesday noon.
Miss Mary Perkins, instructor in the
English department, has consented to
work with the varsity tennis team onq
afternoon each week provided enough
interest is taken in the sport, says Miss
Waterman. No varsity players will be
permitted to take part in the “Round
Robin” tournaments, nor in the class
Since no freshmen are allowed to reg
ister in the canoeing Classes offered by
the physical education department, Miss
Waterman asks that all freshmen wo
men interested in taking part in the
Field Day canoe races, see her imme
diately and sign up for the sport.
“I suggest,” she said, “that only those
girls who have access to other than the
department canoes enter the canoe
races, since the department canoes are
a little too heavy for racing* purposes.”
The women are handicapped in ten
nis ttiis spring since there are only three
courts available for practice and no in
struction is being given by the physical
education department. 'F.n baseball,
however, two new diamonds have been
provided west of the women’s building,
and .judging by the number registered
in the three baseball classes, that sport
bids fair to he the most popular.

Courses in Literature and
Public Speaking to be
“Drama and the Speak Arts”
i is Name Selected for
Dramatic Section
( A number of changes intended to round
out the fields of work of several Uni
versity departments were made during
spring vacation and will take effect with
the beginning of the next academic year.
The departments principally affected are
English literature, public speaking and
dramatic interpretation, and rhetoric and
American literature.
The department of English literature
has hitherto had as its field only that
portion of English literature after the
period of Edmund Spenser. Old Eng
lish and mediaeval English have been
given by Professor Mary II. Perkins and
have been in the department of rhetoric
and American literature. Effective next
October, early English will be in the
department of English literature, and
Miss Perkins will be attached to that
staff, although continuing to teach Eng
lish composition in her present depart
ment. English literature will thus have
its normal field hereaftetr instead of
being cut in two at the time of Spenser.
“Public Speaking’’ Changed.
The expression “Public Speaking” will
disappear from any department title, ef
fective next, October. The work in pub
lic speaking will be given iu part in writ
fen and spoken English courses in the
department of rhetoric and American
/literature. That is, much of the work
in speaking will he combined with writ
ing; students will prepare written pre
sentations of certain subject matter as
/English composition, and will be required'
to present their subject matter orally
before classes. Debate and argumenta
tion will accompany extempore speaking
in this change.
The present department of public
speaking and dramatic interpretation is
thus left free to concentrate on its spe
cialty of the drama, and will probably
be known after this as the department
of drama and the speech arts. The
principal course for majors will be The
Company, which will run for two years
under the direction of Professor Fergus
tteddie. An elementary course and an
advanced course iu dramatic interpreta
tion will feed The Company.
Drill in Finer Points.
The elementary course will be a spec
ies of classroom laboratory in the finer
points of speech, stage presence, and,
so on. It will consist of three class
periods for one hour of credit. It will
he a general service course, open to
non-majors and majors alike, and will
be handled in small sections so that, in
dividual students may be'drilled. The
enrollment \in advanced interpretation
is to be limited to 20, principally maj-.
'ors. Enrollment iu The Company will
(be limited to" 12, who will be practically
/all majors. Students in advanced dra
matic interpretation, may, however, be
used in minor parts iu The Company’s
; The opportunity to devote himself ex
clusively to the speech arts and the
'drama brings the realization of a hope
,Mr. Iteddie has had for many years.
Two Technical Courses,
i Two other courses in whicli the de
partment of drama and the speech arts
will be especially interested are:
i Technique of the Speaking Voice. A
course in scientific tone production with
cultural spoken English as its goal.
Study of the anatomy of the speech pro
ducing organs and resonating cavities,
and their relation to the properties of
-sound. Class limited in number. Con
sent of the instructor must be obtained
before registering. Professor Iteddie.
.Three hours. Fall and Winter terms
Stagecraft. A practical course in
Isoene design, stage decoration, lighting,
and management. Professor Iteddie. Two
hours. Three terms.

Porches Covered With Tables; Girls Are
Confident of Table
, Porch dinners may become as popular
in Eugene as roof-garden parties are in
New York if a precedent set by the
Thetas is followed by other women’s
houses. The eveuieg before last the
back and front porches of the home of
Kappa Alpha Theta were gaily be
decked with tables, and girls who were
calmly eating in view of the public in an
assured way that spoke well for their
confidence in their table manners.
The floors of the house have been in
process of refinishing for the past few
days and this fact, coupled with the ab
sence of a cook, rather complicated the
life of the residents. A new cook came
Wednesday, however, and nlthough the
floors in the interior were strictly label
ed “No trespasing” there was nothing tc
hinder the establishment of eating quar
ters on the porches. As a result, any
passer-by was treated to the sight of
the Theta family satisfying its collec
tive hunger and also having a rather en
joyable time over the unique affair.

National Convention Held at
Bloomington, Ind., Make®
Uniform Rules
Spalding Regulations Adopted
for Basketball; Oregon
Women Return
. A standardized system of points
Riven for women’s athletic ability was
adopted at the convention of Women’s
Athletic Associations at Bloomington,
Indiana, March 18. Miss Harriet W.
Thomson, acting head of the depart
ment of hygiene and physical education
for women, and Ollie Stoltenborg, pres
ident of the Women’s Athletic Associa
tion were delegates from Oregon. Dele
| gates from more than 50 colleges and
universities, representing most of the
states in the Union, attended the con
vention and a large majority favored the
standard point system, whereby women
may be credited with points won in one
institution previous to registering in
In the past. Miss Thomson explained,
the qualifications for point winning have
been so varied that those allowed by
one association could not lie recognised
by another. With the adoption of the
standardized system, however, points
awarded by one school may be trans
ferred like regular academic credits.
Each sport counts so many poiuts and
the convention favored the awarding of
letters or emblems ou the uniform basis
of 100 points.
Point Awards Rest rioted.
The convention also favored allowing
Athletic Association points for athletic
ability alone. In some institutions, said
Miss Thonisou, social leadership, ticket
selling and other student, activities are'
recognized. But, in accordance with the
decision made by the delegates, only
those points actually won ih athletics
can be transferred from one school to
Another matter decided by the con
vention was the adoption of Spalding's
rules for women’s basketball as stand*
ard. The Oregon association and most
western institutions have been governed
by the Spalding rules for some time. .
“I think,” snid Miss Thomson, “that
tl^re is more skill involved in the Spald
iug system, although some Eastern
schools did advance some very good
points in favor of modified men’s rules."
Odd Contest Plan Favored.
Miss Thomson was very mueh inter
ested in the discussion of basketball
guines iu which representatives from
two schools play, not against each
other necessarily, but with players as
nearly evenly • matched as possible. For
instance, she explained, if4 Oregon has a
very tall guard and a visiting team a
very short forward, the players will be
shifted so that both sides are as evenly
matched as possible, regardless of the
school each represents. The game will
then be idayed purely for sport and will
not be one team playing against the
"The system was tried here aoout
eight years ago,” Miss Thomson said,
“and it was very successful. The game
was very interesting and the girls
thought it was groat fun."
Indiana Is Hospitable.
The delegates nt. the convention were
entertained by the Athletic Association
ut Bloomington. \ banquet was served
to the visitors and they wero special
guests at a dance-dram a given by the
dancing department. Miss Thomson and
Miss Stoltenberg were impressed by the
thoughtfulness and eare with which ar
rangements had been made to make the
convention successful. A full report
will be given by them at the meeting of
the Women's Athletic Association next
week, when all of the final minutes of
the convention will be available.
The monthly education meeting of
Beta Alpha, men’s honorary commerce
accounting society, was held in the
commerce building Wednesday evening.
Talks on several subjects were given
by both student and faculty members.
