Oregon Daily Emerald
Northwest Conference Season
To. Get Official Start
This Afternoon
frosh nine defeated
Babes Take Game By Score
of 6 to 1; Many Hurlers
Work in Box.
Providing the weather permits and a
drizzling rain doesn’t descend through
out the afternon, the opening of the
conference baseball season will be offi
cially ushered in today on the Cemetery
Ridge diamond, when the varsity will
meet Coach Mathews Willamette Uni
versity nine in the first of a two game
series. Dope appears to point to f
pretty evenly matched contest, although
there is little dope to be gleaned from
the work of either team thus far this
season. The Bearcats are rated to have
a number of last year’s veterans on their
team and can always be depended upon
to put up a good fight.
On the other hand, Coach Bohler S
still undecided about his line-up for the
varsity nine, and his infield is still giv
ing him the same amount of concern. A
possible line-up which might be picked
as tentative from the way practice has
been carried on, may' mean that Glos will
play first, Beller cover secoud base and
Svarvarud handle the position on third,
with Base at shortstop. The other pos
siblities are either Smith or Veatch at
first, with Liebe or Collins on second,
H. .Taeobberger at short and Finneran on
Berg to Start.In Box.
Art Berg will probably start in the
box for the varsity although Coach Boh
ler may decide to start Gray or Jacob
sen. “Spike” Leslie will do the receiv
ing behind the bat. In the outfield.
Knudsen and Reinhart may neither be in
their positions. Knudsen is suffering
from a slight attack of poison oak.
while Reinhart’s stiff neck will keep him
out of the game today. Zimmerman
will probably handle Reinhart’s positior
in the left garden with Gamble in cen
ter and Knudsen, Geary or Say in right
Frosh Upset Dope.
The frosh nine upset the dope yester
day afternoon and took the measure of
the varsity by a score of 6 to 1. Coach
“Bill” Steers has a first class aggrega
tion this season and although substitu
tions were many on both sides and the
contest was hardly a test of the strength
of the teams, the frosh will no doubt
give the varsity a good race when the
final battle conies. Plans for the game
are being made for next Tuesday, before
the varsity starts on the trip north.
Coach Steers used four of his frosh
twirlers in the game starting off with
Wright and using Stoddard, Ringle and
Douglas during the afternoon. Ward
Johnson did the receiving for the first
year nine. Three varsity twirlers were
used. Hewitt starting and Ford reliev
ing him, with Jacobsen taking up the
work in the seventh frame. Furrey and
F. Shields did the" receiving.

“Lady from the Sea" Is Well-Delivered
Despite Its Complicated
The Company, in its presentation of
TWnrik Ibsen’s “Lady from the Sea” at
Cuild theatre last, night, successfully
portrayed the life and actions of the peo
ple of far off Norway. The five act
Norwegian drama, vivid and full of life,
kept the audience on tension during the
entire movement, and was a distinct de
parture from the plays generally given
hy the dramatic department.
In the portrayal of the life of a Nor
wegian family, many complications arose.
The theme of the drama gradually in
creased and it was not until the final
act was well under way that the climax
was reached, when the “Lady from the
Sea” broke away from the strange power
exerted over her by a stranger, and re
turned to her husband. ,
Miss Irene Stewart, in the lead as the
“Lady from the Sea,” deserves special
mention for the manner in which she
successfully portrayed a most difficult
character part. Though Darrel Larsen,
as Dr. Wrangel, husband of the “Lady
from the Sen” did not apter the drama
until the play was far advanced, he be
came a lead and stood out as the strong
est character in the entire play. Balles
ted, artist, barber and guide, played by
Reuel Moore, furnished moments of
amusement, especially in his rendering
of a cornet solo. The other parts were
well selected and added to total effort
of the drama.
“The Lady from the Sea” played to r
large crowd, and will be repeated again
this evening.
Contralto Brings Two Other
Artists to Assist
“A magnificent program” is what
music lovers exclaim who have seen the
program of the concert to be given by
Madame Margaret Matzenauer, Metro
politan contralto, assisted by Charles
Carver, basso, and Frank La Forge,
composer - pianist, in Villard hall on
Saturday evening, April 1(1.
The fact that there are three artists
in the company this time instead of two
as in the case of the Althouse and Karl
concerts has made possible a much more
varied program than was possible for
either of these concerts. Then the fact
that Madame Matzenauer has such a re
markable range virtually adds another
member to the company making possible
soprano, contralto, basso, and piano solos
and bass and soprano or contralto duets
The program to be given is the same
as that given in Portland on Wednesday
The program is one of the biggest ones
ever given in Eugene. Three operatic
arias and a number of other very dra
matic numbers are included. The aria
from “The Magic Flute” to be sung hy
Carver is one that many bass singers
try and few accomplish. In the original
it is the lowest aria written for bass.
Two of Frank La Forges composi
tions will be sung by Madahme Matzen
auer. One of these, “Before the Cruci
fix,” is said to be one of the most dra
matic songs sung. La Forge is known as
a composer of the front rank as well as
the accompanist of artists.
Besides the dramatic part of the pro
gram there arc a number of lighter
The program to be given in Eugene is
the same one given in the Heilig the
ater in Portland. In Corvallis 3000
people heard the Matzenauer concert on
Tuesday evening. The price of admis
sion there was $2.00 and $2.50 A re
duction of fifty cents will be made to
students. Tickets may be secured from
students, and at the Co-op.
Concert Will Be Given May 16 in Eu
gene Theater by Glee Club.
Wickes E. Glass, representing the
University of California Men’s Glee Club,
was here yesterday arranging for the
appearance of the glee club here May 16,
at the Eugene theater. The organiza
tion is to make a concert tour of (. alifor
nia, Oregon and I\ ashingtou, going as
far northward as British Columbia. They
will give concerts in Oregon at Salem
and Corvallis, besides the concert here.
Last summer a trip was made to the
Orient. Next year they will tour Eu
rope, according to present plans. This
trip, they are traveling in automobiles,
about 60 men making the trip.
Region's Enormous Import
ance Not Grasped, De
\ dares Dr. Packard
Speaker Describes His Own
Work as Surgeon There;
Thousands Helped
The Near East is the most strategic
region in the world, said Dr. H. B.
Packard ,wlio was for 15) years head of
the largest hospital in Persia, in his ad
dress on “He-opening of Old Trade
Routes” at the regular assembly in Vill
nrd hall yesterday morning.
, “The tremendous importance of that
part of The planet is not realized,” Dr.
Packard said. It does not matter so
much to the whole world what hapens
in Tokio, or China, but happenings ir
the Near JGast affect the whole world.
This triangle of territory bounded on
the north by the Caspian Sea, on the
South by the Persian Gulf, and on the
west by the Aegean Sea, is strategic re
ligiously, commercially aud historically,
the doctor continued. It has been and
still is the center of the world’s relig
ions. Religions have been built up and
torn down there. From there they have
spread over the world.
Important in Commercial Way.
The region has always been strategic
commercially. The old trade routes
were so important that they have claim
ed the attention of every great ruler and
empire builder of history. The pearls,
spices and silks of the Orient have al
ways been coveted by the western peo
ples. Migrating peoples have flowed
across this country first from east to
west and later as the western countries
became full the tide changed and moved
The Near Eastern question was one
of the large causes of the world war, he
continued. It has been the battle
ground of many of the world’s greatest
conflicts and was one of the important
centers of the late war. The present
war between Greece and Persia is an
example of the importance politically of
that country, he said.
Dr. Packard sketched briefly the geo
graphy of the country telling of the
many peoples inhabiting it. The Arabic
speaking peoples such as the Chaldians
and Syrians were in the south, he said.
In the north there was a mixture of
races. Greeks in the west, Turks far
ther east, and Armenians aud Kliurds
in the eastern part.
Christian Population Helps.
“The greatest asset to the region has
been the Christian population,” the
doctor said. “They are more energetic,
progressive, honest, aud moral. Young
Americans going into that maelstrom of
the nations have made a tremendous
contribution to the life of the region.”
“I wonder why so many educators do
not find a life work there,” he said.
One-half of the human race is there in
the dark. He then told of Robert Col
lege at Constantinople, said to be the
most logical place in the world for s
university. Students from all over that
part of the world are educated there, he
said, and its graduates are doing a large
part of the governing of the countries
Statistics were given showing what an
enormous amount of wealth the United
States had to expend. “These figures
go to show,” the speaker said, “that we
in America can do what we will.” It is
possible for us to make blessings of our
lives if we follow the teachings of Christ
aud it is also possible for us to make
tragedies of them.
Thousands Operated On.
Experiences of his work in Persia
were told showing the possibilities for
service in that country. He said he had
performed between four and five thou
sand major operations during his stay
there. “I have not yet seen the doctor
with whom I would exchange places,”
he said. “I envy the man who will plant
the new hospital in the port of Mecca,
for there he can touch the whole of the
Mohammedan empire.”
The address ended with an appeal
that everyone work for the betterment
of mankind after the manner of Christ
who preached the doctrine of the broth
erhood of mankind.
Eloise McPherson sank two selections
at the beginning of the period.
“1317, Please—Ain’t No
Such Number; Whadya Mean?”
Asks Susan Campbell Hall
‘‘My goodness, isn't that telephone in <
ye-et?” “Well, what do they think we
are around here anyway?” “Do you
know, those linemen sat on the fire es
caped and watched the ball game half the
afternoon? just imagine.” All this and
more (much more) you would have heard
had you been near Susan Campbell hall
during the past week. Then on Tuesday
evening the installation was apparently
conyjleted and great was the rejoicing.
A long line of smiling girls patiently
waited their turn outside the telephone
booth to inform friends of the good
news. “Now we have a telephone and
you can call me at 1301 until Thursday
and then our number will be 1317.” “Oh
“But gladness turned to sadness
before many hours had passed—It seems”
thnt the telephone number wa^not ns it
should be and when inquirers asked in
formation for Susan Campbell hall they
were informed that “there is no ’phone
in Susan Campbell hall.’* Seventy-five
girls immediately decreed that “some
thing must be done” so one of the num
ber was delegated to straighten out the
tangle. The ‘Chief Operator’ was
called, and in the Oalloe’s sweetest voice
she informed the chief that there seem
ed to be some misunderstanding about
the ’phone at Susan Campbell hall.
“There is no ’phone in Susan Campbell
hall. Call the manager’s office.” “Su
san Campbell hall has no telephone,” the
manager’s office stated. Tatience was *
by this time wearing thin and the voice
was dangerously sweet that replied “Why !
how very interesting. I am talking over
that ’phone right now, can you hear
me?” Evedently he could, because now
one may talk to a resident of Susan
Campbell hall if you ask for 1317. (That

Mary Spiller Award Won By
Hendricks Hall Girl
Maple Dell Moore, of Wilbur, Oregon,
a junior in the department of rhetoric in
the University, has been awarded the
Mary Spiller scholarship for the year
1921-22, according to Mrs. Lawrence T.
Harris, secretary and treasurer of the
Alumnae Association of the University
of Oregon. This scholarship, which was
named for Mrs. Mary Spiller, the first
woman member of the faculty, provides
for board and room at Hendricks for one
Miss Moore is the seventh girl to re
ceive the award. Since 1911 a total of
approximately $1197,.39 has been gi^en
to six girls, two of whom received the
scholarship for more than a year. The
increase in the cost of living has necbs
sitated increasing the amount of the
scholarship from $135 in 1911 to $272.62
for this year. This fact is siguficant be
cause board in the halls of residence dur
ing that time has been the actual cost. !
From 1911-13 the scholarship was
held by Ethelwyn Boydell, of Nyssan;
1913 for one-half year by Bernice Thom,
of Alsea; from 1914-18 by Helen Withy
combe, of Yamhill; in 1918-19 by Lois
Green of Myrtle Point; in 1919-20 by
Helen Mayer of The Dalles; and this
year by Laverne Rumbaugh of Portland.
Any girl graduate of an accredited high
school of Oregon may apply for the ^
scholarship by writing to (Mrs. Harris,
1465 Chemeketa street, Salem.
The'Alumnae Association of the Uni
versity, which gives the scholarship, is
an organization to which every woman j
graduate is eligible.
Educational Work In 26 States Theme
of Article in School Journal.
The April number of the School
Board Journal carries ttoi article of some
length by John C. Almack, on “The
Duties and Training of City Superintend
ents.” The Journal is a periodical of
school administration, published in Wis
consin. * \
In his article, Mr. Almack says, “Why
is a superintendent?” and answers the
question for his readers. The second
theme of his article is: “To take stock
of the connection between the require
ments of the profession as shown
through the rules and regulations Of city
school boards and the training offered in
colleges and universities and by means
of text books.”
In this study Mr- Almack explains the
working of superintendent systems ir
26 states of the union by means of a
chart in which figures and topics are
used. This survey represents wide- re
search and necessitated a great d(fel of
work, as it was necesary to send let
ters to schools all over the United
States, in order to get a conclusive idea
of the duties and training of superin
tendents in this country.
“The Duties and Training of City Su
perintendents” is not the first of Mr
Almack’s work to appear in print, for
he has articles appearing from time
to time in all of the big educations1
magazines of the country.
The Michigan Daily prints a dramatic
review section so that students may know
what shows they wish to attend.
Annual Prizes to be Awarded
Commencement Week
Several seniors have entered their i
names in the Failing-Beekman oratorical
contest, according to William Stanford j
Michael, professor of public speaking,
■who lias charge of the enrollment for the
contest. Professor Michael would like
.to have any other members of the grad
outing class who are interested in ora
tory, talk the matter over with him.
The Failing-Beekman contest is a oo
test in oratory open only to graduating
seniors. They need not be majors in
the department of public speaking. T
contest is held every year during the
commencement program. The awards,
two in number, are taken from gifts to
the University. The Failing prize is the
income from the original gift of $:’"
and is not to exceed $150; the Beekman
prize is the income from a gift of $1000,
and is not to exceed $100.
The judges, three in number, arc per
sons selected by the faculty who are in
no way connected with the University
The contestants are judged on their orig
inality, good rhetoric, and excellence of
delivery, according to Profesor Michaels.
Winners for 1019 were: Failing prize,
Joseph Boyd; Beekman prize, George
Baney. Last year’s winners were: Fail
ing prize, Kenneth Hendricks; Beekman,
Ethel Wakefield.
Philanthropic Senior Registers Two
Times and Parts With Cash On
Both Ocoasions.
Most students find it hard enough to
scrape together enough money to regis
ter once in a term but a case in which
one of them paid his fees twice within
two weeks has been unearthed by busi
ness office sleuths.
The gentleman in question is ’a senior,
and what is more, he is an honor stu
dent.' Now honor students are supposed
to have somewhat of a wonderful mind
but perhaps the fact that the philan
thropic gentleman majors in psychology
rather than economics may have some
thing to do with his absent minded ac
At any rate, the records of the busi
nes and registrar’s office show that at
the first of the term this senior paid j
his fees, filed his card and went through ,
all the formalities of enlisting in thf
student body of the University. The !
same records show that two Weeks later
the same person again paid his fees and
filed another* study card with the same
subjects listed on it although signed by
another professAr in the same depart
All of which goes to prove that some
people have* enough money to cat dia
monds while others lose their last dime
beenuse they haven’t thread to sew U]
the hole in their pocket.

Pacific Coast Teams May
Make Trip To Orient
In Future
Washington and Stanford to
Take Initial Journey
This Summer
If satisfactory arrangements of sche
dules and expense guarantees can be
made by the representatives of the dif
ferent institutions and faculty sanction
is obtained by the various teams, it is
possible that negotiations with two uni
versities in Japan may mean the forma
tiohof a conference or league which will
include these two Japanese universities
and at least four of the big college teams
on the Pacific coast. The plans are only
tentative, but in view of the fact that
two Pacific coast conference baseball
nines are making the trip to the Orient
this summer vacation it is not altogether
out of the questfon.
Trips In Alternate Years.
Washington and Stanford are the two
institutions which are sending teams to
Japan this summer, and the schedules
of the teams include games with the Uni
versity of Waseda and the University o.
Tokio. Washington is playing the Wase
da University during the first week in
July according to their schedule as given
out this winter. Before the two teams
return from the Orient a series will be
played between them, probably at Tokio,
The plan as conceived by some of the
authorities will include a trip to the
Orient for two Pacific coast conference
teams alternate years, while the Japan
ese teams would come to the United
States for games with the coast nines
every two years.
*Jack Benefiel, assistant graduate man
iger, admits that there is nothing tan
gible to work on yet, except the letters
from some of the managers in other Pa
cific coast colleges to get the view of
the Oregon authorities in regard to the
matter. Much favorable comment has so
tar been received for the arrangement.
Coming ns it does during the summer va
cation, it does not interfere with the
work of the students.
Washington Believed Favorable.
Benefiel expects to take the matter up
with Manager Meisnest at the Univer
sity of Washington, in person when he
takes the track team to the relay car
nival in Seattle on April 23, and it is
probable that the Stanford and Wash
ington managers will make arrange
ments with tho Japanese institutions dur
ing their tour in the Orient this summer.
Word from Washington appears to favor
the plan and is believed to be entirely
