The Willamette University Bearcats took the measure of the varsity nine yes terday afternoon in the opening game of the intercollegiate season by a score of 6 to 3. Their five hits coupled with the six errors which the varsity chalked up gave the visitors the game although Ore gon pounded the offerings of Irvine the Bearcat hurler, for a total of 7 bingles during the afternoon. Gray, Berg and Durno took their turns on the mound for the Lemon-Yel low nine. Gray starting the game and working for the first three frames, Berg relieving him at the start of the fourth inning. Eddie Durno was sent in for Berg at the opening of the seventh in ning and finished the game for the var sity. The visitors amassed a total of three hits off Gray, Berg blanking them during his stay in the box and fanning 5 men. Durpo was touched up for 2 hits in the final three innings. Gray struck out 2 men and Durno 2. Irvine Fans Five. Irvine whiffed 5 during the game, while the three lone errors which the Bearcats made came at times when they did not assist the varsity in scoring. Coach Mathews of the visitors worked his same line-up throughout the contest with the exception of Towner, a catcher, who was replaced by Kirk at the start of the second inning. Coach Bolder sent in a new infield in addition to his change in pitching staff at the start of the sixth frame, Glos go ing in at first for Smith, Collins substi tuting for .Tacobberger and Base taking Beller’s place at second. Svarverud worked the entire game on third and the only other substitution was Geary, who was sent in at Gamble’s place in cen ter field. Varsity Scores First. The varsity opened up in the initial inning and chased two runs across the plate before the end of the period, Knud sen clouting a liner along the first base line for a home run and bringing in Smith who got on with a pretty single ahead of Knudsen. Zimmerman crossed the plate in the second frame for an ad ditional run after slamming out a three hagger, Leslie scoring him on a fielder’s choice to the infield. This completed the scoring for the varsity. 'Willamette opened up in the third frame and sent four runs across, adding another in the seventh inning and a last in the ninth frame. Errors and two well calculated hits were responsible for the runs the visitors made in the third in ning. Another game will be played between the two teams at 2:30 o’clock this after noon.

Faculty Answer Questions of Critics (By Madalene Logan and Raymond Lawronce.) v i nis is the first of a series of two articles on the survey made by Miss Logan and Mr. Lawrence. The second will appear at an early date.—Editor.) What is wrong with the American col lege student of today? Is he indifferent? Is he vain? Is he egotistical? Is he unreliable? Is he. prone to useless argument? Is he a frequent user of useless slang? Does he live in an unworldly atmos phere ? These questions, asked by critics of college men, have been answered in a special survey of representative mem bers of the University of Oregon fac ulty, many of whom have national rep utations and are professors of Taried ex perience, having studied both abroad and in America. The majority believe: students live in an unworldly atmosphere but it is not detrimental; sling is prevalent but not more so than in the outside world; ar gumentation is common but it is an evi dence of thought; vanity and indiffer ence are not marked characteristics of American college students. Opinions of the professors were divided on whether or not students were egotistical and un reliable. Recent adverse criticism has caused considerable comment on these questions. The difference between the college man and the yo.ung fellow who has never at tended college is not so great, pointed out Colin . Dyment, dean of the college of literature, science and arts. “I have passed them in road gangs,” he said, “and they can’t be differentiated.” Dean Dyment, in discussing the indictments OWEN CULM IS EtECTEO y. M. HEAD 2nd Election Held to. Decide Tie; Majority is 9 Owen Callaway was elected president of the campus Y. M. C. A. for the com ing year as the result of the rc-elcctior held yesterday. The second election was made necessary by the fact that a tic vote for the president resulted from Wednesday’s ballot. Frank Carter was the other candidate. The winnel was elected by a majority of 0 votes. Wien the first vote came out 79 t( 79 the two candidates desired to toss up for the position, but the election committee decided that it would be best to hold the election over again from the hours of 9 to 12 and 1 to 3 on Friday Only members of the association were al lowed to cast ballots*at this time. In the first election the privilege of voting was extended to all men in the Univer sity. All of the officers but the new presi dent were installed at the banquet at the Hotel Osburn on Wednesday even ing. The men elected to the other of fices were Harris Ellsworth, vice pres ident: Bill Purdy, secretary, and Han Woods, treasurer. The retiring officers were Boy Vcatch, president; Joe Ingram vice president, Norton Winnard, secre tary, and Elston Ireland, treasurer. The newly elected president left last night for Newberg where he will rep resent Oregon at a training conference held under the auspices of Pacific Col lege. All of the colleges in western Ore go'n will be represented. Hal Donnelly,, secretary of the association, will be a speaker. BOSTON DERBY APPEARS Former Student Wears Strange Head gear: It’s Done In East, He Says. “It's being done in the east,” was the way Earl E. Voorhies. former student o' the University, explained his wearing r derby chapeau when seen on the cam pus vesterday. Mr. Voorhies is on his way to Grants Pass to take the position of city editor on the “Courier. He is on his way home from Boston where he has been working on one of the Bean City’s gazettes. Mr. Voorhies also attended the National Editors As sociation convention in Florida and spent two weeks at the Cuban oasis. Telegram and Journal Give Comment on Concert “There is uo contralto in the world to day who possessed and has developed in like degree the vocal and dramatic tal ents of Madame Matzenauer,” was the comment of the Portland Telegram on the prima donna after her Wednesday evening concert in Portland. Madame Matzenauer, assisted by Charles Car ver, basso, and Frank La Forge, ‘com poser-pianist, will appear in concert in Villard hall this evening at 8:15. Madame Matzenauer adds to a voice of velvet quality a splendid stfcgc presence and a fine sense of musical and inter pretative values. The program contained two of the big contralto arias, “Mon Coeur S’Ouvre a ta Voix,” from “Sam son and Delilah,” and “Ah! Mon Fils,” from “Le Prophetc” of which she gave a remarkable rendition, the Telegram continues. J. L. Wallin in the Journal says: “Matzenauer’s voice is of Ruch great range that she can with perfect ease and grace include on her program songs for dramatic soprano as well as contralto.” Wallin also comments on the singing of the two arias, saying that they were sung superbly and with fine dramatic effects. The comments on the remainder of the program were entirely as favorable as the foregoing ones. “Mr. Carver sang himself into great favor with the classic aria from Mo zart’s “The Magic Flute,” and a group of songs . including Handel’s “O Sheep Why Dost Thou Leave Me?” says the Journal. * “Mr. La Forge received an ovation for his piano solos,’^ the Journal continues He was forced *to give several extra numbers. ART PRINTS SECURED Mrs. Warner bends Valuable Japanese Collection to University. ' Mrs. Murray' Warner has loaned the art department a very valuable collec tion of block prints and Japanese paint ings done by Helen Hyde, who lived in Japan for many years. Miss Hyde is an American artist who went to Japan and studied the Japanese art. Professor A. H. Sehroff intends to hang these prints and paintings with his enormous collection of Japanese prints when he has his exhibition of Japanese art against the college man, said that there is a disconcerting amount of truth in some of the criticisms, but they have been generalized for general effective ness. The caricatures often given are no more typical of the ordinary college man than the cartoon pictures of Un cle Sain to the American citizen. College is so full of college that there is little time for worldly affairs, admits Dean D.vment in considering the accu sation that the unworldly atmosphere exists in the colleges of the United States. But he does not consider this unworldliness detrimental, for a high class engineer does not dig bridge foun dations in order to fit himself for his profession, but studies calculus and other mathematical theories. He does not know what bridges are being built but is concentrating on how to build them. Vanity and egotism, of the college students is shown in their pecularities of dress, say the critics. But students in the west, including the University of Oregon men and women, are too poor tc affect peeulior or costly clothes, declared Dean Dyraent. Faculty members try to create on in terest in the affairs of the outside world. Dean D.vment cited the following ex amples: history is concerning itself more and more, with current events; com merce devotes attention to present day business activities and conditions; in medicine, cliuieal work receives an im portant place; the case system is funda mental in law; journalism is fundamen tally interested in facts. It is such throughout the whole University curri culum, except perhaps in the necessarily (Continued on Page 3.) ACADEMIC WHTO BE FEATURE OF COURSES NEXT SUMMER TERM Two-Thirds of Courses to be Graduated and * Upper Class Subjects. RECREATION TO BE FEATURE OF SCHOOL Ten Per Cent of Students Now On Campus Expected To Remain. The 1021 summer term will be the first to be conducted on purely an aca demic basis. For the first time, the courses to be offered will be in regu lar University work, rather than ir special subjects, two-tliirds of the classes being in upper grade or upper class and 'graduate work. The remain ing third of the classes will be conduct ed in underclass subjects. It is estimated that approximately ter per cent of the students attending the University at present will remain for the summer term. “We hope in time to convert the six weeks into a twelve weeks course and thereby run the University on the four term system’ instead of the three and one-half as is done at present,” said President Campbell. There will be a few advanced graduate students who will continue on for the twelve full weeks, doing work in the business office and library and taking some research work at the same time, but the term is only six weeks for the majority of students, it is believed. The work as it is to be offered dur ing the coming summer term, will com prise the same as the first six weeks of a regular summer term, such as it is hoped to establish in the future. The advantages offered by the sum mer term were described by President Campbell. “The work,” he said, “goes on more uninterrupted than during the regular school year, due to the fact that all social functions are eliminated. Another argument in favor of Univer sity students attending the summer term is the opportunity offered for the stu dent in a hurry to .finish his college work, to gain nearly two 'terms by at tending three summer sessions. It is possible to make 10 hours in the sum mer term if all lecture courses are at tended, that; is assembly lectures. This is a little more than one-fifth of the hours in a regular University year. The shortening of a summer vacation by six weeks will not be noticeable in the lives of a great many of the students, as va cation rest, President Campbell inti mated. It will make a difference with those who arc compelled to work in or der to get back in the fall, however. “A student gains several advantages in a summer term that are not possible to a winter or spring term,” Continued President Campbell. There is a smaller attendance, and therefore he is given more personal attention by his profes sors, who in a number of cases are noted national characters from the east and middle western cities. The oppor tunity for concentration is doubled, less distraction and the work is more inten sified and condensed for the six weeks than is necessary for three months.” Recreational is featured in the sum -1 mer term. Excellent athletic courses are ! given and tennis, swimming and other sports are resorted to by the summer students. The weather permits swim piing in the race as well as both tanks and competent instruction is to be given in tms sport. Another feature of a summer term which should appeal to a great number of University students is the chance here offered for one on probation to re duce that probation, and return in the fall with a clean slate, as it were. Stu dents who arc on probation for tin; spring term are compelled to make’ 17 hours the following fall term in order to reduce this, unless however they at tend the summer term, in tltnt case they are only held for 14 hours. President Campbell said yesterday that the summer term bulletin would be issued in the near future, containing the whole list of courses. “I think,” he said, “that it would pay the students to obtain a copy of this publication, from the registrar and make a careful study of what the summer term has to-offer them, and give the matter a serious con sideration and study.” NURSING COURSE POPULAR. “The Care of Children and Home Nursing” has proved to be a popular course this term. Many were refused because the class became too large. Memorial Court Is Adopted As Plan to Honor Dead Heroes Joint Meeting of Alumni, Faculty, Regents and • Students Committees At Portland De cide On Project; Campaign for $100,000 To Be Begun. Portland, Ore., April 15.—(Special to' the Emerald.—The plan of the Univer sity of Oregon to keep green the mem ory of its men who offered their lives in the great war, took concrete shape to day, when the joint committee of alumni, student, body, faculty and regents adopt ed in general the idea of a memorial court, to be situated on the highest point on the campus, and voted to pro ceed at once to raise $100,000 for the carrying out of the project# The memorial court is to be at the entrance to a great auditorium to be built later, as the resources of the Uni versity make this possible, and it will be ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ ♦ ALL MEN TO WORK FROM 8 * ♦ TO 12 TODAY ON NEW FIELD 4 4 All members of the band will 4 4 moot in front of the library this 4 4 morning at 8 o’clock.

The Franklin high squad, under the coaching of Colton Meek, a former Uni versity of Oregon athlete is reported to be a wind splitting aggregation. The Portland squad will be composed of fourteen men who will face a like num ber of Coach Foster’s proteges repre senting the freshmen. Later in the sea son there will probably be some changes made in the present frosh line-up. Ow ing to the limited amount of training done thus far, Foster has not been able to determine the ability of each man. The present squad is composed of men who have been turning out regularly and are in the best physical condition. In the coming meet against the O. A. C. rooks, on May 14, 20 or 25 men will have the opportunity to show their speed.

C. rooks, May 14, at Corvallis. flanked by buildings devoted to music nnd the fine nrts. In the court itself, which will be approximately 300 feet square, will be situated a memorial stat ue, two patriotically ornamented flag poles, and a number of tablets bearing the names of the Oregon men who died in the service. This memorial it was pointed out by Dr. Ralph Fenton, ’03, will be the first properly constituted soldiers’ memorial yet provided in the state of Oregon. It was decided to leave the details of the memorial to Ellis F. Lawrence Dean of the school of architecture, who has already been co-operating with members of the joint committee in work ing out tentative plans. The meeting, held at the University club here, decided at the suggestion of President Campbell who presided, to make the 1921 com mencement a memorial commencement at which the spirit of memorial to Ore gon’s sons who went forth to war will be dominant and at which the plans to promote the idea will be furthered. The general feeling among the com mittee members is, that the court with the statuary and tablet' can be finished by 1925, the University’s semicentenary, and efforts will be bent toward the com pletion of the project at that time. The fund for the memorial, it was said by Karl Onthank, has already been started and includes approximately $800, Tnost of which was subscribed by the University war class, the class of 1918. President Campbell appointed Profes sor W. F. Q. Thacher, Professor F. S. Dunn, ’92, Carlton Spencer, ’13, Chester Moores, ’12, and Robert Kuykendall, ’13, to present the matter to the regents in June, for their co-operation in the gen eral plan. Mrs. George Gerlinger, re gent, who was present at the meeting, expressed her own support of the plan adopted. A finance committee will be appoint ed later by the president. Three of these will be from Portland and two from the campus. The action taken followed a free dis cussion of several alternative proposi tions, including student union, campanile and athletic field, all of which were re garded as open to objections, which do not apply to the memorial court, with its ultimato connection with a splendid auditorium and fine arts building as the physical and spiritual center of the Uni versity. At the meeting were President Campbell, Carlton Spencer, chairman of the joint committee, Karl Onthank, Pror fessor W. F. G. Thacher, Professor F. R. Dunn, Professor George Turnbull. Carlton Savage, L. Bryson, Charlie Fen ton, Grace Edgington, Mrs. George Ger linger, Chester Moores, Robert Kuyken dall and Dr. Ralph Fenton. GIRLS GIVEN PROBLEM Must Maka Five Lunohes for Five Peo ple in Five Hours for Fivo Dollars. Five dollars, five hours, five noon lunches for five persons—such is the problem given to the girls in one of the class in food economics for practical working out. ,T*r The lunches must contain from 800 to 1.000 calories and must be served promptly at 12:15 each noon. Bach girl takes her turn for one week and must do ail the marketing and planning and must not take more than an aver age of one hour for preparing the Innch She is permitted, however, to distribute this time as she desires. At the end of the week she hands in her money and supplies which she may have to the girl * who is to have the problem for the next week. The object of these problems is to teach the student to prepare meals with a minimum amount of time and expense and to use left-overs in an attractive and appetiaing way. “It’s been such fun and I’ve learned sr much,” declared the girl who has just finished her turn. Her guests have also been enthusiastic about the lunches I which were served, declaring the mto be attractive and satisfying.
