Delta Phi Second
Winter Term With
2.80 Record
Highest House Rose Eight
Places Over Standing
For First Term
Sigma Delta Phi local sorority won
first place for scholarship last term,
according to the comparative grade list
of the registrar. Phi Delta Phi law fra
ternity stood first among the men’s or
ganizations, with Friendly Hall, men’s
dormitory, taking best place in the list
of men’s general houses. Alpha Phi was
first among women’s national sororities,
and third in the entire field; Alpha Tan
Omega first of the men’s nationals, and
twelfth in the field. The general aver
age for women’s houses was 3.25, and
for men’s houses 3.64.
In compiling the grades, authorities
averaged all the marks for each house
student by hours of work taken, aud
then averaged all the student standings
for each house. House in which honors
count zero, marks from one to five are
passing, conditions arc counted as six,
and failures at seven. In the race for
scholastic honors for the term, former
records have availed little, and many
houses noted for good grades have fallen
far below their competitiors, while others
have been spurred on by failure to higher
achievement. Sigma Delta Phi, the win
ner of the past term, rose from eighth
place during the first term, with an av
erage of 3.16. to first with 2.66.
Tightening of scholastic standards at
the University has been accompanied by
a general raising of grades on the part
of the students, a result which has been
confidently expeetfed. Thus, while last
term there was only one house with an
average of less than 3.00, there are five
this term which have made an average
tetter than that.
Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, and Alpha
Delta Pi, women’s nationals, which stood
first, second, and third in their present
list during the first term, fell during the
past term to third, thirteenth, and fifth,
respectively. Chi Psi, Sigma Nu, and
De!ta Tau Delta, which* were first, sec
ond. and third the first term, among
men’s nationals, are now fourth, seventh,
ami ninth, respectively. The complete

Summer Term Work to Cover
Boys’ Voice Problems.
Classes given by Mrs. Anna Landsbury
Beck in the teaching of public school
music, for which no special fee will be
required other than the regular regis
tration fee, will be one of the attractions
c£ the summer term.
Three courses will be given, including
elementary school music, which covers
all the grades through the sixth, ad
vanced public school music, covering the
seventh and eighth grades and on through
the high school, and a course in the his
tory and appreciation of music.
“The problem of the unchanged boy
voice will be a feature of the elementary
music class,” said Mrs. Beck, in speak
ing of the work to be covered in the
summer term. “All the problems of
these grades, from the first through the
sixth, will be dealt with, including the
problems of the rural school.
“r! be boy’s changed voice will be an
extensive feature in the work for the
teachers of upper grade and high school
music.” continued Mrs. Beck, “while the
high school work will cover chorus, sight
singing, history and appreciation and all
the other phases of high school music.
Tno use of the talking machine in both
grades and high school will be fully de
veloped. This course is particularly
suited to public school teachers, os it is
a thorough treatment and demonstration
of oorrect 'methods for these school
Mrs. Beck explained the course in his
tory end apprecation of music by saying
i|,ar it would be a course of lectures, to
gether with supplementary research work,
dealing with the evolution of music, its
relation to other arts and sciences, and
its place in a liberal education. Mrs.
Beck stated that a considerable part of
the time would be devoted to the problem
i of intelligent listening, that this course
was recommended to those who wish to
increase their capacity for appreciation
and enjoyment of musical literature, and
are desirous of knowing upon what
grounds and upon what measure a mu
sical work is to be judged.
“\o prerequisite work in music is re
quired.” Mrs. Beck said in reference to
this course, “and it is open to any#stu
derit at the University during the sum

Plans are in progress for a summer
course of music at Eugene, which will
probably include instruction in piano,
voice, and violin.
program. The morning program will be
gin at 10 o'clock and continue till 12.
The afternoon program will start at 2:30.
Then there will be the evening program,
beginning at 8:30.
When the committee was considering
what would be the very best thing for
the evening, there was unanimity of
choice that the Portland Symphony Or
chestra provide the musical entertain
ment. And the Portland Symphony Or
chestra, with Carl Denton, conductor,
and David Campbell, soloist, is coming.
The faculty and students of the Uni
versity, the people of Eugene, and the
numerous guests of the day, will have
the opportunity of enjoying the follow
ing program:
1. —Adagio, Allegro Molto.
2. —Largo.
3. —Scherzo.
4. —Allegro con Fuoeo.
Valse Trieste, (Sibelius).
Preludium, (Jarnfcldt).

Allegro non Troppo e Molto Maestoso.
Allegro con Spirito.
Andantino Semplice.

Symphonic Poem, “Les Preludes,”
The concert will be held in the Wo
men's building. Tickets are already on
sale at the Co-Op, Kuykendall’s Drug
Store, the office of the alumni secretary
and by representatives of various campus
organizations. General admission will be
one dollar, and reserved seats a dollar
and a half and two dollars. These low
prices arc made possible by the fact than
the orchestra itself is paying .$1000 to
wnrd the expenses of the concert.
The Portland Symphony Orchestra,
which is rightly called Oregon’s own or
chestra, is now the only one in the north
west. It was organized in 1910. Of the
original 54 men who were members at
its inception, 19 are still playing with
the orchestra. This is an unusual re
cord, for in many of the larger and older
orchefetras the members varies to quite an
extent. Naturally this extended associa
tions tends toward an understanding that
makes for an ensemble that could not be
acquired in a shorter interval.

They got more fun out of it, however,

Indications Say.
Offer to Send Second Team
Meets With Disfavor
From Northerners.
From the present indications, it ap
peals that the Pacific Coast Conference
Track and Field meet will be run off
this year without the presence of com
peting teams from either California or
I Stanford. A communication from L. A.
j Nichols, graduate manager of the Univer
sity of California, to the graduate man
I ager’.s office here appears to confirm
tiie rumor, for Nichols states that the
Bears have decided to send their team
east to compete in the I. C. A. A. A. A.
on May 21. Word to that effect is also
expected from Stanford within the near
future, for although Stanford has not
communicated with the athletic officials
at Oregon yet, it is generally known that
the Cardinals expect to send their team
east to compete in the intercollegiate
Suggestions Made.
| Nichols offers the suggestions thnt
! California might be able to send their
second team to Eugene for the meet, but
they will not receive any encouragement
along that line, according to indications
in official circles here. California was
invited to participate in the meet as all
all the other teams of the coast, belong
ing to the conference were, and it is
hardly probable that any of the northern
teams would consent to meeting a second
team from the southern institution. It
is certain that no expense guarantee
would be given them, as was included in
the contract.
Manager Nichols does not state as to
whether or not a tennis team from the
U. of C. will be entered in the confer
ence meet, here on May 21. Ho was of
the opinion in his communication, how
ever, that it was possible that California
would send a two-man team, providing
the inducements were large enough in the
way of entries.
Action Regretted.
California and Stanford would have
both proved good drnwing cards for the
Pacific coas* conference meet, and it is
to be regrerfed that they can not see fit
to send their teams to the meet, but it
appears that the two California institu
tions have practically withdrawn from the
Pacific coast conference, to the extent
that when other games or meets inter
fere they immediately cancel their Pacific
coast conference dates.
As one member of the athletic council
said Inst night, “It appenrs that Califor
nia is attempting to join an Atlantic
coast conference, rather than to keep the
scheduled dates with the Pacific coast
conference, of which she is a member.”
The communication from Nichols is the
result of a controversy between the
Oregon and California graduate mana
gers, in which California deRired to have
the date of the Pacific coast conference
meet at Eugene placed ahead one week
so that their teams might get back from
the east. As the date of the meet was
decided at the meeting of the conference
in San Francisco last, winter, it was im ■
possible to put the date ahead.
