Varsity Wins Easy In Seven
Inning Matinee Last
Eight Games Scheduled For
£rip; Leave Thursday;
Back May 1st
Tht Oregon varsity had little trouble
in tmincing Willamette in the second
game of the two-game series last Sat
urday, and won 12 to 7. Coach Bohler’s
protfges showed marked improvement in
Saturday's matinee over the day previous
when the Bearcats annexed the long end
of the score.
Two more days of practice, nnd the
varsity crew, as yet not definitely picked
by Coach Bohler, pulls out of Eugene on
their northern trip when they will invade
Seattle, Pullman, Walla Walla, Kenne
wick and Portland, for a series of eight
games, returning to Eugene on May 1.
When the team leaves Thursday, they
will leave with an average of .500 in the
Northwest conference, the result of the
two games played with Willamette. Two
games with Washington at Seattle will
figure in the coast conference percent
ages, two with W. S. C. in both confer
ences, while the one contest with Whit
man in the Northwest only. A game will
be played with a town team at Kenne
wick, while the varsity mixes with the
North Pacific Dentists and the Mult
nomah club at Portland before returning
Contest Is Swatfest.
The contest against Willamette last
Saturday developed into a veritable swat
fest before the conclusion of the seven
innings played. The* game was called at
4:30 to allow the Bearcat tossers to catch
a train. The varsity amassed a total of
ten hits off the two twirlers used by
Coach Matthews of the visitors, while
Willamette gathered seven off the three
moundsmen who saw service under the
Lemon-Yellow colors during the game.
Bohler started an infield composed of
Ralph Smith on first, Franz Bellar on
second, Bill Collins at short, and Carlie
Svarverud at third, and for the first time
this season used this combination
throughout the game. Don Zimmerman
held down center field in place of Johnny
Gamble. All told, the varsity made but
five scattered errors as against eight for
the visitors.
Bohler seems to have developed some
real sluggers, judging from some, of the
long distance bingles handed out Satur
day. Svarverud, Knudson and Jacobson,
during the few innings he was in the
contest, batted close to perfection, ac
cording to the score books, the first
two crossing the pan three times apiece
during the contest. The hits came at
times when the varsity were able to push
runners across for tallies. In the second
canto, “Spike” Leslie leaned on one of

He Loves Insects. '
Leo Abbott, a major in law and a mem

now further displays his love for the in

He says he is making a business ex

the fact that he has been stung a num

now. however, he is in search of a phre

so suddenly made themselves painfully
noticeable under his hat.

Of Assembly Program
Formal presentation of the Kenneth
Lucas Fenton Memorial law library will
take place in Villard hall on Thursday
morning at 11 o’clock. Mr. and Mrs. W.
D. Fenton, donors of the library, will be
represented by Mr. George H. Burnett,
member of the Oregon state supreme
The following program has been ar
ranged for the presentation ceremonies:
Overture—Morning, Noon and Night,
University orchestra.
Introduction of Mr. George H. Bur

Address of Acceptance on part of
board of regents—Mr. J. W. Hamilton,
president of board of regents.
Address of Acceptance on part of law
school—Mr. Louis E. Bean, member of
Lane county bar.
The Fenton collection will be a spe
j cial asset to the Eugene bar, according
| to Dean Hale, of the iaw school, for they
have free access to the library and use
of it at will. This makes the partici
pation of a member of the Eugene bar
of special significance, according to the
The books are still temporarily stored
in the old commerce building but Dean
Hale expressed the hope that work could
be started on the shelving shortly. The
architecture department has made a sur
vey of the building and pronounced it
strong enough to support the weight of
the massive collection. The present li
brary will be turned over for use as a
stack room only' and an adjoining room
will be utilized as a reading room, ac
cording to Dean Hale.
| The addition of the Fenton library to
the volumes now owned by the law
j schools brings the total number of books
in the library up to about 20,000. Only
the library of the state supreme court
at Salem excels it, in Dean Hale’s opin
ion. The supreme court library is said
to be one of the best in the country and
is the result of long and careful com
Oregon and O.A.C. Cabinets
Meet on Upper McKenzie
Council meetings of various kinds are
usually boresome, roudfne affairs, but the
girls of the O. A. C. aud Oregou cabinets
of the Y. W. C. A., who met this week
end at the Blue ltiver hotel about 45
miles up the McKenzie river for a con
ference, declared thef had a wonderful
time besides accomplishing a lot of real
The council sessions were taken up
with the discussion of different phases
of the work of the association. The
place of Christianity on the campus, the
definition of Christian, the purpose of
the Association, and the relation of the
cabinet members to the campus as a
whole, were some of the subjects dis
The seven O. A. C. girls, Miss Gladys
Taylor, secretary from Corvallis, ten
< 'regon girls and Miss Dinsdale left Fri
day afternoon for the hotel in cars pro
vided by men of the University. These
men managed to amuse themselves upon
arriving by going fishing. Four other
girls came up Saturday morning, bring
ing with them Miss Alice Brown, student
executive for the northwest field of the
Y. W. C. A.
A Seabeck luncheon, with the center
piece on the table fixed to represent the
lagoon at Scabeck with its bridge andi
swimming pool, was the idea carried out
Saturday noon. Impromptu Seabeek
toasts were given by the different girls,
and Seabeek songs were learned.
In the afternoon all of the girls started
on a hike to the Lucky Boy mine, but
only seven reached the goal. The mine
was about 14 miles from the hotel. The
mine is an old-fashioned silver mine.
A huge bonfire and a marshmallow
toast were The order of the evening. The
marshmallows were especially enjoyed
because they had been given up for lost
for such a long time. Several boys throw
the marshmallow box into the river
causing great consternation among the
girls. It was empty, however, and after
having enjoyed the effects of their joke,
they brought the candy back and peace
was restored. Oregon and O. A. C. songs
were sung and several new things along
the musical line were introduced, accord
ing to participants.
Two of the girls who did not go to the
mine visited a construction camp. Hav
ing seen all of the camp they wished,
they managed to get transportation to
Belknap springs and home again.
The girls had their rooms in cottages
near the Blue River hotel. They took
their own cook and food and had plenty
of opportunity to wait on tables and set
them. „___ _ _ i —aJ £
Men’s Glee Club Which Will Appear Here April 23
The men’s glee club, with the record
behind them of an exceptionally success
ful season and a phenomenal success in
Portland, will appear in concert in Eu
gene this coming Saturday.
The program bears the promise of a
concert, the equal of which has not been
offered by an Oregon glee club in many
years. The numbers which will be sung
will include many of those which were
used on the recent trip to Portland and
so well received by the audience in the
The stunt this year has undergone con
siderable extra work. Contrary to the
usual custom, it is not shrouded in mys
tery—to avail but little, upon the night
of presentation. However, members of
the glee club say little regarding it, ex
cept thnt it is replete with “local color.”
This also is true of n considerable por
tion of the program, several of the num
bers used on the Portland trip being left
out to be replaced by interesting take
offs ou campus subjects.
The glee club has been under the di
rection of John Stark Evans, whose abil
ity as a director has been largely re
sponsible for its splendid work this year.
Margin of 14 Points Chalked
' Up Over Aggie Squad
“Ring up another bull’s-eye.”
As Daniel Boones, Oregon men have
the edge on O. A. C.—proved last Sat
urday when for the second time this
year, the Oregon rifle team shot its way
to victory over the Aggie cadets. Com
petition held on the regular range re-1
suited in a 1607 score for the Oregon
squad, against a 1593 score made by
O. A. C.
The shoot was held by each team sim
ultaneously firing upon its own range,
the result of the scores being exchanged
by telegraph after the shoot. The firing
was done in three positions at two ranges.
200 aud 300 yards.
High Men Are Tied.
Charles G. Robertson and Orvin T.
Gant were high point men for the Oregon
team, each making a score of 175 points
out of a possible 200. The team was
composed of ten men, Robertson, Gant,
Marvin Eby, Dean Hurd, William Dur
ham, Edward McAllister, Don Zimmer
man, Orange Lemon, James Meek and
Percy Lasselle.
The Oregon squad fired on the target
range at the south end of Willamette
street. At 200 yards the firing was done
from standing and kneeling positions in
slow fire, and kneeling position at. rapid
fire. At 300 yards, prone and kneeling
positions were used in slow fire and the
prone position in rapid fire.
Eby and Hurd Are Next.
Eby and Hurd shot close second to the
leaders of the score, their totals being
174. Durham took third place with a
score of 169. The highest individual
score for any one position was that of
47 out of a possible 50, made by Robert
son in rapid fire at a range of 200 yards.
In the first competition held this year,
Oregon was victorious by a score of 860
to 802. This shoot was held on the in
door range, with sub-calibre rifles-and
ammunition. The scoring and results were
handled in the same manner as the shoot
which was held last Saturday.
University Is Challenged.
Both matches were sponsored by O.
A. C., who issued the challenge to the
University of Oregon. The chajlengc
was accepted, and the team coached by
Major A. E. Rowland. Several of the
members of the team were present at
the summer training camp last*vacation
and participated in the coast competi
Although no further matches are defi
nitely scheduled, Ma jor R. C. Baird, com
mandant. expects to make arrangements
for two more shoots before the end of
tiie year. He plans, if possible, to bring
the O. A. C. team here, so that both
trains can shoot upon the same range.
The Oregon team would then go to Cor
vallis for a return match.
Dr. R. II. Wheeler, of the psychology
department, will leave for Stanford Uni
versity about June 20. where he is to be
an instructor in the summer school. The
subjects which he will teach are mental
measurements and psychology for teach
ers. The summer session at Stanford
will last for five weeks. Dr. Wheeler
was a summer school instructor at Stan
ford last year also.
Those Who Look Heavenward Through
Transit, Accomplish Merely a
Tomorrow’s Task.
If, on some sunny Tuesday afternoon,
or on some starry Wednesday night,
you should happen to see a group of
young persons on the campus taking
turns gazing at the heavens through an
“engineer’s transit,” set up on a long
legged tripod, don’t think that those
young persons are surveyors—nor poets
seeking inspiration from a more intimate
acquaintance with the heavens.
The gazers heavenward, you may ob
serve, are probably only some members
of Prof. E. H. McAlister’s class in as
tronomy—there are six of them, and
they do study the sun and stars through
surveyors’ instruments, and ns near as
we can learn, they are not at all poetic
or temperamental. In fact, Professor
McAlister, himself, declared the work to
be “shamelessly utilitarian,,” “It in
volves a lot. of hard work and drudgery,”
he said. “The students go out by twos,
and one observes while the other makes
Well, what is it all about?
“It is a course in practical astronomy,"
explained the instructor, “The course us
ually taken by surveyors, and consists
of making observations of the sun and
stars from which to determine time, lati
tude, and longitude. Of course,” Dr. Mc
Alister continued, “we have to make our
observations on days and evenings when
the sky is clear. In the evening, it is
necessary to have artificial light in order
to read the instrument, so the students
take a flash light. We select an open
place on the campus where there are no
trees to obstruct the view.”
So there, when you see these star gaz
ers, hereafter, know thou that they are
hard-working students getting their les
sons just like the rest of us—even so.
Madeline Slotbloom, Senior, Tests AM
Patients For Signs of
Bacteria. v
The infirmary has been greatly
strengthened this year according
to Dr. E. H. Sawyer, by the assistance
of Miss Madeline Slotboom, the “labora
tory technician,” whose special duty it
is to make a chemical and bacteriological
analysis of disease germs and bacteria.
Miss Slotboom works every afternoon at
this work, having as her laboratory a
part of Dr. Swectser’s in Deady hall.
This is the first year that such an analy
sis has been made at the University.
This work is especially important in
cases of epidemic, for it enables such
cases to be isolated early, and also the
right kind of treatment to be adminis
tered at once. A bacteriological and
chemical analysis, made on six students
this year which told of typhoid and dip
theritic germs were found to be of great
value for the treatment and diagnosis
of these patients in the infirmary. “Such
work as hers,” said Dr. Sawyer, “is ab
solutely indispensable to modern medical
Miss Slotboom also assists Dr. Bertha
Stuart in taking the blood counts of
underweight girls, and in finding out
cases of anemia. Such cases which are
not actually sick cases, but show blood
Impoverishment are showed up by her and
given effective treatment.
Another of her duties is that of test
ing the swimming tanks for germs, which
is done daily.
Edisota Marshall prize giveta
to. “The Veil”.
First place in the Edison Marshall
short story contest was won by Ernest
Ilnycox, whose story was entitled “The
Veil,” acflording to an announcement
made by Professor W. F. G. Thatcher
yesterday. This award carries a prize
of $15.
Irene Stewart took the second prize
of $10 with her story, “Constiu."" Third
place was given to Geraldine Cartmcll
for her story entitled “All His Goods He
Spent.”, An autographed copy of Mar
shall’s latest book was offered for third
prize. ft
All three of the successful contest
ants were members of Professor That
cher’s advanced short story class. Miss
Stewart received honorablo mention in
last year’s contest.
The judges did not agree in their first
decisions and the final decision was
reached only after a compilation of the
grades given the papers had been made.
In a letter to Professor Thatcher, one
of the judges said, “I think one of the
i.'ost amusing things in several of these
manuscripts is the ingenious and vicar
ious knowledge of ‘the world, the flesh
ODd the devil’ that the writers display.”
Jiidges for the contest were Miss Grace
Edgington, of the English department,
Miss Grace Torrcy, well known Portland
j short story writer, and E. L. Devereaur,
of Portland.
