etry I, physics II, physical education
The highest grades among the women
were made by Isabelle J. Kidd of Port
land. a junior majoring in latin. Miss
Kidd made almost the same grades as
Mr. Hicks, her’s being a straight T card
except for physical education which was
a III.
Emily Veazie of Portland, a sopho
more in English literature made higher
than a TI average, and Zelia Van Valzali

Training for Trade and Field
Throughout tlie.se articles I have cau
tioned against overwork and training in
athletics—the entering of too many
events by the scholastic athletic when
not in good physical condition. The ob
ject of these warnings is to prevent un
necessary injuries. A great many of the
injuries in athletics are the result of
carelessness or overwork. The athlete
must take care of his muscles during
early training and protect,them from the
cold by dressing warm. This will pre
vent many cases of strained and torn
muscles. A good massage before going
out will in a large measure prevent
early stiffness.
For strains or soreness there is noth
ing better than hot water. The most
common injury from which runners,
hurdlers and jumpers suffer is sore
shins, commonly known as shin splints
or buck shins. They are caused by in
flammation of the muscles attached to
the shin bone. This is a hard one to
cure. My experience is that adhesh e
plaster wrapped above and below the
injured part will relieve it some. A good
rest should be taken.
The calves of the legs will become
very sore and stiff during the first
week or so of preliminary training. This
is something which cannot be pre\ ent
ed in the ease of beginners. If the ath
lete works easily and' warms up slow }
at the beginning of his day’s work he
may overcome this, and if not, a rest
of a couple of days is advisable. Hot
water and massage will work wonders
in these cases.
The worst injury which a sprinter can
receive is a pulled tendon, some call it
split muscle but generally it is the for
mer. The cause is over-reaching while
muscles are not sufficiently warmed up
It generally happens between the two
heads of the biceps muscles in the back
of the leg. Those who are unfortunate
enough to have this happen should have
an absolute rest. It should be treated
by making a cast of adhesive plaster sur
rounding almost the entire leg; ends of
tape should almost meet on front of
thigh; each strip should overlap the un
der layer, and it should be put on snug
ly without wrinkles.
Of course, the athlete will have to
giv,. up training for the season if the
case is severe. I have known cases to
come back two years after. So one can
be too careful. The athlete should
consult a physician. There is general!.'
a warning given before a breakdown or
tear to anv of the muscles. The runner
will feel a sharp pain then will become
a little stiff when cooled off. .Tust ns
soon as these are felt the athlete should
heed the warning by using a leg band
age to support the part. If it is pain
ful hot water will relieve it. and care
should be taken while running not to
overstride but keep within the hurting
point. . - -
Freshman Nine To, Face Var
sity for Practice Mix
Batteries Defy Bad Weather;
Hold Light Workout
In Gym.
Rain, which converted the Cemetery
Ridge diamond into a sea of mud and
kept up a steady drizzle throughout the
afternoon yesterday caused the cancel
ling of the baseball game with the Chi
cago (Rants, colored professional nine.
It was impossible to keep the visiting
team here in hopes of playing this after
noon on account of the full schedule
which the Giants are playing throughout
the Northwest. Coach Bolder was dis
appointed and held out until the last ir
hopes that the game could be played but
the rain persisted and the coach finally
called off the contest.
The varsity nine will meet the frosh
team on Thursday afternoon if the
weather will permit, according to the
plans of Coach Bohler and “Bill” Steers
mentor of the frosh squad. The frosh
succeeded in downing the Chemawa In
dians in a two game series last week
end and are out after a few more scalps
and are taking on the varsity with that
idea in mind. The game will begin
promptly at 4 o’clock and will serve as
a good practice contest for both teams
it is probable that the two coaches will
have their entire squads out in suits
and give most of them a chance to get
into the fray during the afternoon.
The opening of the conference sche
dule will come Friday afternoon when
Coa'ch Bohler’s proteges will meet tin
Willamette, University Bearcats. Coach
Mathews is bringing his team down from
Salem foe a two game series in the
Northwest conference opener for both
teams. Nothing is known of thf
strength of the. Bearcats for they have
hot played any important games as yet
but they are conceded to have a pretty
fast nine this season.
The frosh game and the two games
Will furnish plenty of opposition for the
varsity nine the remainder of this week
and the finishing touches arc being put
on hurriedly to get the varsity into tir
top Shape for the conference openers
Captain Reinhart is still suffering from
a stiff neck and it is doubtful if he will
get into the games much before the
team starts on their Northern trip,
which is scheduled to begin April 21.
The batteries took a short workout
in the gym yesterday, when it. was
found that the wet grounds woidd pre
vent the game with the Chicago team.
Dr. Stuart and Miss Hair Don’t Mind
Noise But Think of the
Good To Come.
“Wow! Mftmm—aa!” and other baby
sounds from the most ear splitting of
cries to the gurglest of baby gurgles is
sued from the county nurse’s office in
the court house, Saturday from D to
12 a. m„ when the Lane county Free
Children’s Clinic met for the second
time. Forty-four little ones were ex
amined by Dr. Bertha Stuart and Dr.
Beardsley, assisted by the county nurse
and by Miss Mozelle Hair, chairman of
the county nurse committee.
When asked if the crying and general
confusion wasn’t terrific, Miss Hair
smiled and said: “Well, there was quite
a bit of racket, but what can one ex
pect when one gets 44 babies in one
room?” The good that is expected to
»esult from the examinations will no
doubt make the clinic one of the most
valuable institutions in Lane county.
Saturday mothers were in from Junc
tion. Creswell, Cottage Grove and Blue
River with their children, who ranged in
ages from a few weeks to 15 years. It
was through the co-operation of the
I'niversity and town women that the
clinic was made a possible thing and it
is this same co-operation which will
keep,it going.
All babies or older children who
visit the clinic, which meets every Sat
urday. will be weighed, measured and
given a free examination by the doc
tors. The mothers will then be advised
as to tile necessary care their children
need. If medical attention is necessary
a doctor will be advised, but the clinic
doctors do not give treatments.

Dr. Hodge Returns From Convention
Held In Portland; 1000 Delegates
In Attendance.
Mining is the biggest industry of the
Pacific coast, in the opinion of Dr. Ed
win T. Hodge of the department of
geology who has recently returned from
tending the Third Annual International
Mining Convention held in Portland
April 5, (1, 7, 8, 0, at which there were
approximately 1000 delegates, largely
from the Pacific coast and Northwest.
I>r. Hodge was one of the presiding
officers of this year’s convention,, and
was one of a group of interested men
wdio, realizing that mining on the Pa
cific coast was anx essentially different
thing than mining on the rest of the
North American continent, felt the
need of a convention in which their pe
culiar problems might be taken up. Dr
Hodge, who first conceived the idea of
the convention in the form it eventually
took, was given the task of organizing
the first convention held in British Co
lumbia in 1010, which was so successful
that it was decided to make it an annual
Pacific coast coal was found entirely
satisfactory as a fuel at the convention
in Portland, and as iron ore is found ii
great quantities west of the Itockies, il
is very probable tht steel manufacture
will present itself us a permanent indus
try on the coast, according to Dr. Hodge
who thinks that there is no reason why
we should be dependent upon the east
for such an important material as steel
The convention dealt with the pron
lems of the mining man oil the coast, and
numerous discussions were held and ad
dresses delivered on specific subjects.
The convention decided on Nelson, B
P„ as the next meeting place, and Dr
Hodge was asked to manage the 1922
Dr. Hodge spent most of his vacation
in British Columbia looking over the
gold mines of the C'oquahalla district
and the placer mines of the Caribou in

Madame Matzenaner has won fame

is said to have the most phenomenal
voice known to the musical world. Her
operatic career was begun as a con
tralto in Strassburg at the age of 20.
Between that time and the time of hei
coining to America, 1011, she was lead
ing contralto at the Wagner Festivals in
Prince Regenten Theater in Munich and
was guest artist in the leading cities of
Europe always singing contralto parts.
On I^ew Year’s day-in 1012, she hur

“Kuudry" in “Pnrisfal” and scored such
a success that she has since become

Four Plays To Be Presented
In New Auditorium.
Thirty-five upperclassmen in the Uni
versity high school have organized a
! dramatic club, and are planning to put
on four plays during this next term
.Miss Ethel Wakefield, an instructor, if
helping the members of the club in the
production of these plays.
The first of this series of plays, which
is to be staged within the next two
weeks, is called “When the World’s
Asleep.” It was written by one of the
students, Alfons Korn, and critics who
have regd this play consider it excep
tionally good work, says Miss Wakefield.
Dale Colley, another student in the club
is making the scenery, and the cos
tumes have been designed by other mem
bers of the club.
The story of the play centers about n
little town where everything is done to
the cuckoo clocks. The people of this
town eat, sleep, work and play at the
j command of the litle bird who conies
out every hour to tell them the time.
The “Wanderer” comes to the town, und
impishly puts all the clocks out of com
minion. Eventually he elopes with the
“Girl” who is anxious to see the world
hut when they get out into the world
again they find that the only thing they
want is to get back to the little town
where everything is done to the cuckoo
The splendid auditorium and stage in
the new high school building make the
production of plays both profitable and
successful. The other plays to be given
later on are “Nevertheless,” “Daddy
Long-Legs,” and “Neighbors.”
1921 ELEVEN Will
Three Conference Contests
Already Scheduled; May
Play Post-Season.
Negotiations Closed By Cable;
Contracts Are On Way
From Islands.
Three Ramos have been scheduled for
flie 1021 gridiron season according to
information from the Graduate Man
ager’s office yesterday, and the game
with the University of Hawaii is now
practically assured. The .final signing
of the contract with the Honolulu insti
tution has not been completed yet but
the negotiations have been closed by
cablegram, and the contracts are on the
way from the Islands by boat.
The expense guarantee from Honolulu
consists of all expenses for 18 men from
Eugene to Honolulu and return and dur
ing their stay in the Island*. Two games
are to be ployed, one with the Univer
sity of Hawaii at Honolulu on Christmas
Day and another with the Hawaiian all
stars to be played in Honolulu on New
Year’s Day.
One Game on.Home Field.
The three other games for which the
final contracts hutfe been signed are with
Washington State College, the Univer
sity of California and the Oregon Aggies.
The game with the California eleven will
take place on October 22 in Berkeley,
the Washington State game will be played
in Pullman on November 5, and on No
vember 11), the Oregon Aggies will play
in Eugene.
The remaining dates in the schedule
are yet to be filled and may mean that
the University of Idaho and the Univer
sity of Oregon will meet in Portland on
October 15. A communication has been
received from Coach Kelley of the Idaho
eleven asking for a game in Portlaud
on that date, and in lieu of the fact that
Willamette cannot play the varsity on
October 15 as was originally planned it
now appears probable that either Idaho
or Multnomah Club will be signed up
for the date. At any rate the game
will be played in Portland, next season.
Final arangements have not been com
pleted yet but negotiations to that ef
fect are being carried on and they will
probably be closed for the date.
The Wisconsin Alumni of Portland are
making a strong attempt to arrange a
game between Wisconsin and Oregon to
be played in Portland, on the Saturday
following Thuuksgiving but it is not
probable that this game would be played
in the event that Oregon signed the
final contract for the Turkey Day game
with Multnomah club.
Negotiations with a number of Eastern
teams have been carried on with a view
to arranging a post season game to be
played in Portland, but as yet no defi
nite dates have been signed for. It is
highly probable that some arrangements
can be made with an Eastern team, for
a game following Thuuksgiving. How
ever, Oregon will have to remain in
training for the Christmas Day game in
the Islands and a game might just as
well be played in the interviewing times.
The Lemon-Yellow squad will probably
leave for Honolulu about December 10,
to return to Eugene about January 10.
