Innings of Game
Hitting of Bearcats and Er
rors of Oregon Lost Open
er; Knudson Gets Homer.
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

What s Wrong With American
College Students? Faculty
Answer Questions of Critics
(By Madalene Logan and Raymond Lawronce.)

two articles on the survey made by
Miss Logan and Mr. Lawrence.
The second will appear at an early
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

and the yo.ung fellow who has never at

“and they can’t be differentiated.” Dean

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
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
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

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
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
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

Two-Thirds of Courses to be
Graduated and * Upper
Class Subjects.
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.”
“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

Joint Meeting of Alumni, Faculty, Regents and
• Students Committees At Portland De

$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

Excellent Contest is Promised
On Kincaid Field
The University yearling track aggre
gation will mix with Franklin high
school of Portland for the laurels of
victory, this afternoon, at 2:15 on Kin
caid field, in the first home track meet
of the season.
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.
The men and the events they will par
ticipatc iu arc as follows:
100 yard dash: Emil Ghio and Albert
220 yard dash: Emil Ghio and Albert
410 yard dash: Harley Covalt and
Lawrence Cook.
880 yard run: George Gardiner and
Lot Beattie.
High hurdles: Kenneth Campbell and
John Rosenberg.
Low hurdles: Lawrence Cook and
Kenneth Campbell.
Shot put: Charles Parsons and Troy
Discus throw: Charles Parson and
Troy McGraw.
Pole vault: Ralph Spearow and John
High jump: Ralph Spearow, John
Rosenberg and Kenneth Campbell.
1 Broad jump: Spearow and Rosenberg.
Javelin tlftow: Spearow and Parsons.
Mile: Fremont Byers and Jason Mc
Relay: Four men to be chosen from
the following: Cook. Covalt, Grilley,
Ohio, Rosenberg and Spearow.
The freshman schedule in full for the
season: Cliemnwa on April 23 at Eu
gene; a dual meet with Washington high
school of Portland. May 7, at Eugene,
and with the O. A. C. rooks, May 14, at
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
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.
