Saturday’s Contest Goes tc
Sundodg-ers By Score
of 17 to 5.
Thirteen and Seven Bingles
Are Made Off Twirlers
By Two Teams
Oregon won the first game since leav
ing Eugene on their northern trip yes
terday. defeating the Washington State
College tossers at Pullman 4 to 3, in a
game which was slowed considerably by
a drizzling rain. Coach Bolder used Art
Berg, Rolla Gray and Carl Knudson in
the box before the end of the nine cantos.
The varsity started the scoring in the
fifth stanza after a four-inning pitchers’
duel between Borg and Skadan. Gamble
and Smith both crossed the pan when
Berg got a hit over second, aided by
errors by Oehler and Ruberg. In the
sixth. Reinhart and Knudson got on base,
both scoring on two errors by the Cou
gar infield, which went to pieces after Bill
King, veteran third saeker, had wrenched
his ankle while chasing a long foul.
Tlie Cougars slipped one tally over
the plate in the fifth, and two more in
the seventh, but failed to push enough
runs across to overcome the Oregon lead.
McDonald made the first run for W. S.
C on a combination of an error, a stolen
base, and a hit by Muller. In the sev
enth McDonald and Muller raced home
when Rtiley garnered a long' hit over
center and landed safely on third. The
score— It. II. E.

W. S. C.3 7 6
Batteries—Oregon, Borg. Gray, Knud
son and Leslie; W. S. 0., Skadan, Ruley
and Bray.
W. U. Takes Both Games.
Oregon dropped the second of the two
game series to the Sundodgers, Saturday
afternoon in Seattle^ by a score of 17
to 5. The inexperienced infield of the
Varsity was no match for the Northern
ers, and five costly errors, coupled - with
the 13 hits which the Washington nine
amassed off the offerings of Berg, Gray
and Zimmerman spelled defeat. Oregon
touched Harper, who was in the box for
the Washington nine, for a total of 11
bingles, but they were hopelessly scat
tered and meant but five tallies.
The Northerners had little trouble in
defeating Oregon in the two game series
and from ail indications, Washington has
a first class team this season. They won
a total of 12 games against semi-pro
teams of Seattle and Tacoma before the
conference season began and their work
against the Lemon Yellow nine in the
two games shows them to be rated pretty
Sundodgers Heavy Hitters.
The Sundodgers have a team of heavy
hitters this year, two of the members
batting over the .400 mark, with two
going better than .300. Seven others of
the squad are hitting out over .200. In
addition to this. Coach Allison had a

season and one of the mainstays on the
mound upon whom Coach Bolder has
been depending this season, was not al

recently had his tonsils removed, and
with a few minor ailments with his
tln-oat, he lias not been left in the best
of phvlseal condition. Coach Bolder had
to cut his pitching staff to three mem
bers for the northern trip as a result.
Only two of these, Berg and Gray, have
so far shown their worth this spring.

Pnze Mouser Suffers Misfortune In
Search For Breakfast; Girls
Groat consternation and much worry
was in evidence at the Pi Phi house
Sunday morning when Agnes, the prized
mouser, suffered a broken log from a
tailing stick of wood, while the was on
the trail of meat for her breakfast.
A first aid squad was rushed to the
drug store for ether, but as there was
noue in stock they were compelled to
return empty-handed to the suffering
little scrub cat. who had adopted their
basement early in the term.
The S. A. K.’s were then called in for
consultation and, when it was finally
evident that the leg was broken and not
sprained, a veterinary surgeon was sum
Today Agnes reposed on a cushion with
her hind leg in splints and all but fed
from a spoon by her concerned nurses.
Salem Gym Work Regarded
Goad By Miss McAllester.
Miss Laura McAllester, instructor in
the physical education department, was
greatly impressed by the interest shown
in physical education in the schools of
Salem and Portland. Miss McAllester
accompanied eight gym majors on their
annual trip to study different physical
education methods as they are actually
worked out in public schools and private
organizations. The trip included the
schools of Salem and Portland, the Mult
nomah Athletic Club, the Turnverein,
Reed College and Peninsula Park in Port
The purpose of the trip was purely in
the interest of physical education, and
the entire three days, Thursday, Friday
and Saturday, were filled. Miss Mc
Allester feels that the trip was of great
value to the girls who made it. They
were Vivian Chandler, Ollie Stoltenbcrg,
Eva Kelly, Naomi Robbins and Cecile
Barnes, seniors, and Grace Tigard and
I Ella Rawlings, juniors. They returned
to the campus Sunday evening.
Mechanical, Electrical, Chem
ical and Mining Work In
cluded In New Schedule.
Columbia Professors Express
Approval; All Requirelments
Said to Be Met.
Tho new three-year curriculum which
is to be offered by the University next
fail, is meeting with the approval of
such schools as Columbia. Stanford, and
the University of California, according
to Dr. A E. Caswell, chairman of the
new course of study. This prescribed
course covers pre-engineering work in
mechanical, electrical, chemical, mining,
and certain special branches. The course,
! as now arranged, provides that a student
, upon finishing his work is some standard
i school granting the degree' of profes
sional engineer at the end of his third
year after Oregon.
Oregon Work to Rank High.
In expressing his full approval of the
course to be offered at Oregon, Prof,
j George V. Wendell, chairman of the
! curricula of the school of mines, engi
| neering, and chemistry of Columbia uni
versity, says, “I wish to tell you how
delighted I am to know that you are able
to arrange a program that is so satisfac
tory to yourselves and so entirely so
to us.”
It is jdanned to moke the first three
years spent at Oregon fully equivalent
to a similar period at Columbia, or any
other standard school. In speaking of
the plans of Oregon, George P>. Pegram,
dean of the schools of mines, engineer
ing, and chemistry of Columbia Univer
sitl, says, “Your ideas and plans are so
exactly in accord with what we should
like to arrange with many of the strong
est colleges and universities, that I can
assure you that you can count on us to

Villard to Be Scene of Mighty
Conflict; Gurgly Blood
Sought By Profs.
(E. J. H. is hereby unanimously
named most-high press agent for the
all-University men’s smoker. Never
claiming more than a reading ac
quaintance with a news story, the
well-known Campus Cynic marshalled
together a few facts, a galaxy of su
perlatives and hitherto-unknown ad
jectives. and, his enthusiasm over
coming him, sought a typewriter. The
following is the result. Please don't
blame the Emerald.—Editor.)
Custer’s last stand will stand as a
mild wrist-slapping contest in comparison
with the real massacre that is going to
be pulled off Saturday, April 30, in old
Villard. Nominally the name of this af
fair is the Men's Smoker. However, we
have the sworn statement of a half
dozen faculty members that they’re out
for red, gurgly blood. Somebody must
have told them that they were getting
decadent, for they’ve organized teams in
boxing, tumbling, rooster fighting, and
squaw ‘rastling,’ and have dared the en
tire male portion of the school in gen
eral and the various classes in particular
to come on and fight. They’ve got teams
representing flyweight, paperweight, fly
paper weight, bantam, light, middle,
heavy—the whole gosh darned list of
weights, with a few dreadnaught weights
thrown in. They want to meet any stu
dent who thinks he can fight; they want
especially to go to the mat with those
immature young jellyfish who think the
faculty has lost its gumption.
“We’d just love to tangle with those
who have been making derogatory state
ments lately.” said one unusually mild
professor with a vicious gleam in his
eyes. “We shall make mince meat of
And another voiced the opinion that
the younger generation was getting pret
ty soft. “Nothing to it.” said he tersely.
“We’ll win hands down. I doubt if We

Some Eat Yeast To Get Fat
Some To Get Thin; Williams
Says Popular Idea Erroneous
‘‘There is a good deal of bunk con
nected with the popular idea of vita
mines,” said Professor Roger J. Will
iams. of the University chemistry depart
ment, who spent n year in the Chicago
research laboratory of the Fleischmann
yeast company. “Some people take yeast,
thinking that the vitamines in it will make
them fat, others take yeast to get thin.
The yeast seems to act just as well in
one way as the other, or in other words,
probably works neither way. Yeast does
seem to have some curative effect on
eruptions of the skin—carbuncles, pim
ples, and so forth. Whether this is due
to the vitamines in the yest is an open
“The scientific theory, ns originally
formulated by Casimir Funk, is that there
are a number of diseases, scurvy, pella
gra, beri-beri, and rickets, each caused
by the lack of a certain unknown sub
stance in the diet. In the case of beri
beri and scurvy, the idea lias been proven
to be correct, but in the- case of rickets
and pellagra, the evidence is not so
clear. There is, however, a disease of
the eyes, called xeropthalmia, not men
tioned by Funk, which often results from
malnutrition and has been ascribed tc
tlie lack of a specific substance called
‘fat soluble vitnmine,” which is so named
because it is found in the largest quantity
in butter fat.
“In the popular mind vitamines are
frequently connected with yeast, but there
is necessarily no more connection be
tween vitamines and yeast, than between
vitamines and potatoes and gravy. feast
happens to be richer in one. of the known
vitamines than potatoes or gravy, but
it is not so rich in the other two which
are equally indispensible.”
Ordinarily when it is desired to test
a certain food for a vitamine, the effect
of the food on the growth of white rats
or guinea pigs is studied. Professor
Williams declared that he made use of
the growth of yeast us a test for beri
beri preventing vitamine. inasmuch ns he
found that the yeast plant, like the high
er animals, needs this vitamine for its
nutrition. The use of the yeast test is
very much simpler and quicker than the
use of experimental animals.
Vitamines are present-in varying quant
ities in practically all foods, and are not
restricted to such foods as yeast, milk,
and tomatoes, stated Professor Williams
The vitamines ns well us the other equal
ly necessary food constituents are par
ticularly well-balanced in milk. Milk thut
comes from cows on dry feed is low on
scurvy preventing vitamines, however.
Scientists have worked out the action
of vitamines, but tiie yenst companies,
and even some of the large bakeries,
have distorted the ideas to their own
benefit, and have given the public n
misconception of the subject, remarked
Professor Williams. Dairymen have also
appropriated the findings of the scient
ists to promote the sale of more milk.
This is largely justifiable, however, ns
milk lias undeniably very high value as
a food.
Well-Blanaced Program Given
By Songsters.
(By Leland A. Coon.)
Twenty vivacious college songsters,
intent upon conveying enthusiasm ti their
hearers, a competent director, and melo
dious, effective songs—the result, a most
successful concert by the University of
Oregon Men’s Glee Club. We had heard
them at infrequent intervals throughout
the year, but not until Saturday evening
were we afforded an opportunity to ap
preciate their real merits and to under
stand the reasons for their Portland
success. To John Stark Evans, their
most capable, energetic, and efficient
director, is due unstinted praise for the
skill with which he has organized the
club, and so balanced the parts that no
“nodes” appear in the ensemble.
Variety and good taste were evidenced
in the choice of numbers and their ar
rangement on the program. Crisp enun
ciation, exact attack and release were
outstanding features. In the “Red Man’s
Death Chant” the staccato effects were
carefully brought out. Of the songs of
the South, “De Sandman” and the unique
arrangement of the “Banjo Song” wero
deserved favorites with the audience,
while in the final Glee Club number,
“This Is She,” the most dramatic fortis
simo effect of the evening was attained.
The quartet, consisting of Messrs. Ev
ans, Ilopkins, Morrow and Eben, merited
the enthusiastic reception accorded them
for their delightfully delicate presenta
tion of the “Serenade.” Mr. Hopkins,
who has become indispensable to the club
as piano soloist, played the C sharp
minor Scherzo in his usual Chopinistic
style, and offered as an encore the A flat
major waltz by the same composer'.
“A Musical Strain,” the original con
tribution which occupied the final part
of the program, presented Eugene Short
in clever cartoon sketches, and a combi
nation of jazzy instrumentalists who add
ed popular spice to the concert with their
airy melodies interspersed with dramatic
warblings of an escaped grand opera star
of the violent type. Oregon Songs, effec
tivel.v sung, in which the club was joined
I by members of former years, brought to
a close a peppy, well-balanced program of
I which any university much larger might
: he proud.
Eva Von Berg, a graduate in the class
of lblS, and Lillian Littler, ex-10, were
on the campus last week-end visiting
friends. Miss Littler and Miss Von Berg
have just returned from the east and are
now teaching school in Astoria. While
in New York they attended Columbia
university. They are members of Kappa
Kappa Gamma sorority.
Arthur Tuck Is Winner of
The Oregon men sent to Seattle for
the relay carnival last week-end were
able to take fourth place with seven
points. During the entire day of the
meet the weather was bad, and rain and
hail fell most of the time.
Arthur Tuck took first place in the
pentathalon. Tuck took first place in the
javelin, first in the discus, second in the
1500 meter, and second in the 100 meter,
giving him high score among the entries.
Oregon’s other points came in the mile
relay, in which the men took third. Col
lins, Wyatt, Sunderleaf and Lucas ran
in this race for Oregon. The team en
tered in the half mile relay was com
posed of Obertcuffer, Kuenhausen and
Lnrsen, and the team in the two mile
j relay, of Walkley, Paltier, Wayne Akers
and Coleman.
The teams entered in the meet were
from Washington, Washington State,
Idaho, University of Southern California,
O. A. C., Oregon, Montana, Whitman and
Montana Wesleyan.

For Emerald Berth.
Four Aspirants Now Grooming
For Annual Elections
On May 12.
Nominations for student offices for
next year will be formally made on May
5, nine days from today. So far four
men have announced their candidacy for
three different offices. The political ball
has started rolling.
Of chief interest perhaps is the an
nouncement that Elston Ireland will be
n candidate for A. S. IT. O. president.
Secondary attention will be focused on
the announcements of Stan Eisman and
Floyd Maxwell, both of whom will con
test for the position ot editor of the
Emerald. The other candidate to enter
the ranks is Harry Mayer, who aspires
to junior representative on the student
Has Been Active On Campus.
Elston Ireland, a member of the class
of .1022, has been active in class and
student activities throughout the three
years he has been in college, and has
also held important positions on campus
publications. During his freshman and
sophomore years he was circulation man
ager of the Emerald and while a sopho
more held the additional position of cir
culation manager of the Oregana. He
acted us assistant to the University his
torian for one year, and during the past
year served as treasurer of the campus
Y. M. C. A.
Ireland has also taken part in ath
letics, having been a member of the
frcslimnn track team during his first
year, and the following year a member of
the cross country marathon team. He
is a member of Kappa Sigma.
Other Candidates Quiet.
Other candidates for A. S. U. O. presi
dent have not as yet made themselves
known, although it is expected that be
fore many days have passed there will
be other aspirants for that position as
well as the other offices to be voted on
at the annual elections May 12.
Itemy Cox and Wayne Akers, both of
whom have been mentioned as possible
candidates for A. S. U. O. president have
announced that they will not enter the
race. “Absolutetly not,” said Cox when
questioned as to whether he would be a
candidate. Akers answered in much the
same fashion. Both declare that outside
work will occupy too much of their time
next year to permit their entrance in
the race for A. S. IT. O. president.
Emerald Editorship Race.
With two candidates already entered
for editor of the Emerald, the race for
that position promised to be more In
