Captain “Bill’ Reinhart will not bo in

send against the Chicago Giants, colored
professional team, this afternoott ac
cording to the dope from training ituar
ters. “Bill” is on the hospital list with
a stiff neck and although the injury is
not serious it will keep him out of the
game and is at present proving rather
painful to the varsity pilot.
The line-up to start will probably b(
shifted slightly from that which started
against the dental college nine last Sat
urday afternoon. Bolder will probably
use Glos at first base although Yeatc)
will no doubt get into the contest to
cover the initial sack. The second base
position will probably be held down by
Boiler, and Base will be given a ehanec
to start at shortstop, according to the
indications, oase lias oeen wonting at
the keystone sack but his shift to short
stop may mean that he will be given r
chance to work in that position if he
jnakes good. Svarverud will hold down
the third base position according to the
dope sheet.
Zimmerman, who has been showing
much - promise for an outfield position
will probably start in Reinhart’s place
Zimmerman is inexperienced but he is
working into good form. Gamble wil1
cover the center garden and Knudser
the.right field position. These positions
are all subject to change on short no

get in the game.

1 South American Newspaper
“El Comercio.”
The first page of a recent issue of
El ( omercio leading daily in Quito.
Ecuador, was adorned with a two-col
umn halftone picture of Miss Lucile F.
Saunders, former student in the school
of journalism of the University of Ore
gon, who is now touring South Amer
ica for the Portland Oregonian and a
number of magazines. Miss Saunders
is described as a distinguished and in
telligent young journalist. After re
ferring to her mission, the paper went
on to say: “Miss Saunders is going
south within a few weeks. She declares
herself enchanted with the beauties of
Ecuador and surprised at its progress in
industrial and agriculture. From her ar
rival in Guayaquil until now she has
found in Ecuador a country most pic
turesque and interesting. She says she
has been very well impressed with the
culture of the people of Quito and their
treatment of those from other lands.
We bespeak for the distinguished young
writer the most pleasant stay in this
In a letter just received on the cam
pus Miss Saunders, writing from Lima.
Peru, describes her experiences in sev
eral of the Latin-American cities. At
Quito, she writes, she ran into real
American newspaper enterprise for when
she “gleefully announced” to the pub
lishers of “El Comercio” who wanted
her photograph that she had not brought
one tyith her, “it soon became appar
ent,” she writes, “that I would be in
suiting these publishers unless I con
sented to accompany them to a pho
tographer, who kept me waiting half an
hour to look at a corner of the room
and then took two vacant-eyed views of
me.” Miss Saunders speaks in praise
of the “Telegrafo” at Guayaquil as ar'
enterprising paper, run on North Amer
ican lines. She expects to be in Buenos
Aires before many weeks.

Training for Track and Field
The shot put is an event in which
strength and weight are the determin
ing factors, but one must also have a
knowledge of the form so as. to get the
benefit of his weight. Speed is the one
requirement that all putters must have
if they expect to be successful. If the
athlete has all three—weight, speed and
, strength—the shot is bound to go a sat
isfactory distance. Form is then very
important. This can be acquired only
by constant practice.
The best form for putting the shot
will be found in the following points taken
tip separately. There are two ways to
hold the shot; some place it with the
main weight resting on the fingers and
as the shot is leaving the hand it is flip
ped with the wrist and tips of fingers.
Dr.e must be very strong in the wrist
and fingers to be able to do this. Many
who use this style have not the strength
required, and when the arm is pushed
in the final effort the wrist and fingers
R'.ve away and momentum of the shot is
. retarded and the consequence is that dis
tance is lost. On this aceouut I w'ould
not recommend the form to scholastic
athletes for the present. A safe form
aiul one used by the majority of shot put
ters is to let the shot rest on the base
of the fingers, thumb and little finger
used to form a pocket with the other
fingers. This is the first thing to learn
—How to hold the shot.
The reverse may next be tried from a
stand, holding the shot in the right, as
suming the putter is right handed. It
should be held snug against the neck,
on and a little in front of the shoulder.
The left arm is held up pointing in al
most an angle that the shot will travel,
the left side facing the direction of the
put. The left foot is placed against the
toe board or near the edge of the cir
cle. The right leg should be slightly
bent at the knee an the arm so held
that it feels the strongest with shot
resting in front of shoulder. The elbow
should be held in a position to give the
best drive to the shot upward and for
ward. One’s instinct should tell
whether the shot is held correctly or not.
The athlete is now ready for the re
verse” in which the final effort is made.
The body is quickly turned with the be
ginning of the forward motion so that
the right leg will be in the position held
by the left at the beginning of the final

Darrell Larsen Takes Role of
Dr. Wangel In Ibsen
Drama To Be Given Thursday
and Friday Nights In
Guild Theatre.
In “The Lady from the Sea” Ibsen
has accomplished a difficult character in
Elkla. the leading figure of the playf.
Somehow the sea possesses an undefin
able power over her that plays with her
fancy and depresses her. In the story
she is the second wife of a parish doc
tor by the name of WRngel, located in
a small town on one of the fiords of
Norway. Iler life there is not as in
timate with the doctor and his family
as it might be, yet everything is smooth
and pleasant.
Sometime in the past she had known a
sailor who wooed her and attracted her
by a strange strength of will. Forced to
leave her unexpectedly, they parted by
the sea, where he placed a ring belong
ing to her with one of his own on a key
ring uud threw them into the sea, de
claring they were married to it.
Before she married Waugel she had
had every reason to believe that this
stranger was dead, but after years he
appears and demands her as his own.
She knows that it is unconventional, that
the stranger has no right to her, yet she
feels the force of his will. When I)r.
Wangel sees how she is affected he
states his willingness to let her decide
the question unhampered by any claim
he has over her and leaves her free to
decide what she will do.
In the big moment, she Weighs file
consequences of both courses, consider
ing the hazard of a life with one man
the dullness of her past life with the
other, and then makes her decision.

Opening Student Body Affair In Wo
men’s Building Well Attended.
Jazzy music, a peppy crowd, two
rooms to dance in, and cozy balconies to
sit iu, were the things which went to
make the first dance in the women’s
building the success it was. The dance
was held Friday evening, and took the
place of open house, which usually is
held at the opening of each term.
The main gymnasium room and the
aesthetic dancing room were used and
provided ample space for dancing. An
eight-piece orchestra furnished the
music. Nearly 250 couples enjoyed the

Council to Soon Let McClain
Give Up Student Managing;
To Concentrate On Co-op
The resignation of Marion McClain as
graduate manager of the Associated
Students will likely be accepted by the
atthletie council only after a successor
has been found. McClain has been en
deavoring to relieve himself of the po
sition since early in the year, but the
athletic council has so far refuse to ac
cept the resignation until a suitable suc
cessor can be found.
McClain considers that two man-sized
jobs such as graduate manager and.man
ager of the Co-up store are too much for
one person to handle successfully. His
term as graduate manager ends in June,
and he insists that he will not under
any circumstances be a candidate for re
Throughout the year, McClain has been
using Jack Beuefiel as assistant grad
uate manager .leaving most of the
routine work to him. But all official
matters, such as meetings, signing of
papers, and the like, must still be done
by the graduate manager, and this work
McClain claims, takes a great deal of
time aud attention.
The athletic council lias known of
McClain's intention to resign for some
time, the graduate manager having re
peatedly made attempts in council meet
ings to have his resignation take effect
immediately. The athletic council, how
ever, has postponed action until all ap
plicants for the position can be heard
from and all possible candidates looked
Jack Benefiel has not definitely an
nounced his intention of becoming a can
didate for the position, but it is gener
ally understood that his application will
be filed with the athletic council. He
has served as McClain’s assistant
throughout the year, and has handled the
scheduling of practically all sports since
last fall. McClain has been assured uu
officially that he will be relieved as soon
as a successor can be found, allowing
ample time for nil appicants and candi
dates to be heard from.
Tlie committee seeking a new gradu
ate manager is composed of Dr. Bovard.
A. It .Tiffany and Si Starr.
Speaker Had Thrilling Times
In Near East Relief.
Doctor H. B. Packard, former mem
ber of the American committee for
Armenian and Syrian relief and for a
score of years head of the Westminster
hospital at Uruinia, who is now on a
lecture tpur of the Northwest will ad
dress the assembled student body Thurs
day morning at eleven.
The subject of Doctor Packard's talk
will be announced later, but from ad
vance notices received at the president’s
office concerning his varied and excit
ing career among the polyglot peoples
of the Orient and his thrilling and
courageous labors in behalf of the refu
gees following the Near East massacres
by the Kurds during the European war.
the student body may expect something
different and out of the ordinary in the
way of an assembly talk.
Described as* a giant in stature as
well as among people, Doctor Packard
was noted as an athlete during his un
dergraduate days at Colorado and was
captain of both the football and base
ball teams. »
In addition to his medical work among
the warlike Kurds and his relief activi
ties during the war, Doctor Packard
has written a grammar of the Kurdish
language, said to be the only book ever
compiled of that little known tongue
The original manuscript was lost and
the Doctor at present is at work re
writing the book.
Vernon Motschenbacher Appointed Gen*
eral Agent for Insurance Co.
Vernon T. Motschenbacher, prominent
among the alumni and president of the
Associated Students during bis senior
year on the campus 191.1-14, has been
appointed general agent for the state of
Oregon by the Connecticut Mutual Life
Insurance company. His experience and
success in agency field work for the
company has led to his present position
according to a communication received
at the president’s office from the head
quarters of the company in the East.
His new headquarters will be in Port
Air. Motschenbacher received his II. A.
degree in 1014 and while on the campus
was active in numerous student body ac
tivities. In addition to the honor of be
ing president of the student body lie

of both the glee club and the debating
team, and was one of the organizers of
the University bund. He is a member
of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity.
Dr. John F. Bovard, dean of the
school of physical education, left the

departments of physical education in
these colleges. lie is also looking over
the health service work for the stu
dents on the various campuses. He will
return the latter part of this month.
H. R. Failing Tells Class of
Workings of Agency.
H. H. Failing, secretary of the Bots
ford, Constauttine and Tyler Advertis
ing Counsel and Agency Service com
pany, of Portland, gave a short talk yes
terday morning to the members of Pro
fessor Thacher’s class in advertising.
Mr. Failing told of the organization and
operation of a modern advertising
agency, taking up esj>ecially the busi
ness end. He is a graduate of Yale and
is a nephew of Henry Failing, at one
time a member of the board of regents
of the University.
An agency, said Mr. Failing, of of
service to an advertiser in an advisory
capacity, as the results of past cam
paigns can be applied to the problem in
hand. The secnet of the success of the
agency, according to the speaker, is the
formulation of a sales plan. This pre
vents the manufacturer from fulling in
to a habit of drifting. When advertis
ing is run for a number of years, said
Mr. Failing, the investment tends to be
come accumulative. This accounts for
the success of many advertising cam
paigns carried over a period of years
The copy of several complete campaigns
undertaken by Botsford, Constantine and
Tyler was shown to the cluss.
Mr. Fuiling was the first of a number
of speakers who will talk to the adver
tising class on present-day advertising.
F. II. McMahon, manager of the mer
chaudiziug bureau of the Oregon Journa1
will speak in the near future.
F. C. Pickerman. adverttisine manager
of the Montgomery, Ward company,
will talk to the class on “Direct Mail
Order Advertising’’ at some future date.
Another speaker will be Mr. McCully
advertising manager for Meier &
Frank, who will talk on “Department
Store Advertising.”
All these are Portland men, who are
at the head of the different lines of ad
vertising activity, who represent the
best to be had in these lines. Besides
the Portland speakers, a representative
from one of the Eugene papers will
speak on “Advertising in the News
paper,” and a member of the faculty of
the school of journalism will talk on
For the use and information of stu
dents who contemplate studying or tak
ing graduate work at the French uni
versities, Christian Vaeher, consul of
France with headquarters at Seattle, has
forwarded to the University of Oregon a
large number of catalogues of the vari
ous colleges of France, and other pamph
lets containing valuable information
concerning the work and life of the
American student abroud. A complete
set of the catalogues will be placed on
file at the library and will be available
for those interested.
Professor It. ('. Clark, of the history
department, has received word of his
appointment as University of Oregon
representative on the National Commit
tee on Chinese higher studies.
Practice Contest Gives Line
On Material and Shows
Infield Is Weak.
Oregon Batting Is Poor But
Coach Is Not Discouraged
Over Showing Blade.
The ability of the North Pacific Den
tal College team of Portland to hit when
hits meant runs gave them the edge
over the varsity in the first game of the
season, the score being 5 to 4. Art Berg
and Rollo Gray each took a turn on the
mound for Oregon. Berg walked one.
struck out one, allowed six hits and had
five runs scored on him during the five
innings he was in the box. In the last
four innings Gray allowed one hit.
struck out seven and hnd no runs scored
against him.
Berg made no attempt to use any curve
balls or speed in the game Saturday.
He took things easy and allowed the op
position to hit rather freely. Four er
rors behind him contributed in no small
measure to the scores chalked up by
the embryo dentists. Gray hooked a
few and used his underhand delivery to
advantage. He will probably get a
chance to work again during the game
with the Chicago Colored Giauts who
play here Tuesday.
Quizzenberry, who pitched for the
Dental College was in fine shape. He
allowed five hits in the entire nine in
nings, struck out five and did not issue
any free transportation. Rodney Smith,
a former University student and also an
ex-member of the Kugeno high school
team, played stellar ball at short for the
The Oregon team failed to get going
iu the batting department, due largely
to th efnet that they have not been hit
ting any curve ball pitching in practice.
But one clout for an extra sack was
registered during the game. This one
came in the last stanza when Art Base
polled one into right that was good
for a double. •
inking into consideration the fact
that, Bolder is facing the problem of
making an en^rc new infield, the show
ing on the part of those who got a
chance Saturday was in no way dis
couraging. Several fine points will have
to he developed and team work as a
whole wilf have to be* built up but the
men looked good and got through the
game without an exceptional amount of
bone-head plays or busj» league base
In the matter of hatting the varsity
looked weak on account of not having
freed a curve pitcher previous to the
game. Johnny Gamble came through
with n nice single and Svarverude ,at
third, got two off of the offerings of
the., Portland pitcher. Present indica
tions arc that at least two positions on
the team will be awarded to men who
can hit. A good extra base hitter and
a clean-up man were lacking in the
game Saturday. *
Berg will probably be sent back in
Tuesday against the Chicago team as
Jacobson is hardly in condition to start
a game as hard as this one will be.
Jake is just geeting over a siege of ap
pendieit.is and ttottsils and , is just
rounding into shape. He will be in con
dition to take his turn on the mound
when the team leaves for its northern
trip the latter part of the month.
Coach Bohler expressed himself as'
fairly well pleased with the showing
made Saturday. Considering the disad
vantages that the Oregon batters were
under and the fact that very little team
work has been developed thus far it was
his opinion that the game was as good
