POWER IN CONFERENCE
IS VESTED IN FACULTY
Amities or Quarrels Not Yet
Up Before Committee;
Ho.we Must Decide.
Editor of tlio Emerald: Will you please
correct the impression late issues of the
Emerald seem to convey that there is
some kind of a brainstorm over the action
of California in deciding to send her
track team to the intercollegiate meet in
the east instead of sending it to the Pa
cific coast track meet at Eugene. Such
action does not in any way threaten the
existence of the Pacific coast conference,
or give any excuse for the irritated com
ment in the editorial column of the Em
erald. The University of Oregon this
winter definitely asserted that the con
ference had no control over the schedules
of the various institutions, and refused
to accept the football schedule which
was voted by the rest of the conference.
What is good law for us is good for the
other institutions in the conference.
Whatever institution has ground to com
plain of California’s action in regard to
track, it is not Oregon, which must
allow California the same liberty of ac
tion it claims for itself.
The statement in your nbw's column
that “it is certain that no expense guar
antee would be given” the California
team if they send their second team, is
hasty. That matter has not been sub
mitted to the athletic council, which
alone can pass on the matter. Such cases
have come up before. In the ’nineties,
Cornell, for instance, thought herself
strong enough to send her first crew to
ITenley. to row Oxford and Cambridge,
and to beat Columbia and Pennsylvania
with her second crew. As a matter of
fact, Cornell was beaten soundly that
year in both regattas. But if any insti
tution thinks itself strong enough to
beat its competitors with one hand tied
behind its back, there is a certain in
terest in trying it out. Of course, any
team which represents California must
do so as “the California team,” and not
officially ns a second team.
Universities Form Conference.
It might be Interesting to your readers
to inform them that the Pacific coast
conference is not an association of stu
dent bodies. It is an association of uni
versities. and its rules provide that “each
institution shall select a voting repre
sentative who shall hold office until his
sucessor is elected. He shall be a fac
ulty member and not financially inter
ested in athletics.” 'In other words, the
student bodies of the various institu
tions and their amities or quarrels have
nothing to do with the conference, which
is an association of universities through
their faculties. The representative of
the University of Oregon to a conference
meeting is appointed by the President,
his expenses are paid by the University,
he receives his instructions from the
President and faculty, and it is always
well to consult him before announcing
that “athletic relations between Oregon
and California may he seriously strained.”
The track question lias been submitted
so far neither to the athletic council,
which is the arbiter in money matters,
nor to the chairman of the athletic com
mitter, who is, by the rules of the con
ference, Oregon’s representative in that
conference, and alone authorized to pass
on questions of intercollegiate “relations,”
whether “strained” or bearing their more
usual resemblance to an Irish stew.
H. C. HOWE,
Chairman of the Athletic Committee,
University of Oregon.
SPORT SCHEDULE ADDED TO.
Jack Benefiel, acting graduate mana
ger, announces that a dual tennis meet
has been arranged with Reed College, to
be played at Eugene on May 14. One
more game has been added to the frosh
baseball schedule also. Columbia Univer
sity. of Portland, will play the babes on
May 5, on the Oregou diamond.
ONTHANK AT HOOD RIVER.
Karl W. Onthank, secretary to the
President, accompanied by his family,
has left via automobile for Hood River
to visit his parents and will be absent
from the campus for a week or ten days.
Willing Faculty Members
Answer Ad for Track Toil;
Ducking Wails for Shirkers
The Emerald has been publishing an
intermittent list of freshmen, asking them
to report for work on Kincaid field at
4 p. m. of the day of publication. The
appearance of the list, composed of some
20 names each time, generally succeeds
in bringing the Services of that many
freshmen for work in improving the
track and baseball fields.
Yesterday morning, in the Sigma Delta
Chi special edition of the Emerald, the
five neophytes burlesque}! this list, and
published the names of some 20 members
of the faculty. They didn’t expect the
joke to be taken seriously.
Yesterday afternoon, at. the jjour ap
pointed, four members of the faculty
appeared on Kincaid field, dressed in old
clothes and overalls.
“We’re ready for work,” they said.
“Where’s the straw-boss?”
A hurry call was scut for Bill Hay
ward, who superintends the work done
by the freshmen. Bill, whose name was
included in the licit, was finally located
about 50 miles out of town. He had
taken the afternoon off to go fishisg.
The members of the faculty were ter
ribly disappointed because there was
nothing to do, according to their story.
Their organization was perfect. Dean
Eric Allen was foreman, Dean Colin V.
Dyment and Louis H. Johnson, comp
troller, were assistant, foremen, Carlton
Spencer, registrar, fully equipped in ov
eralls, was the crew,' and Dean John
Straub was the reserve working force.
The five members of the faculty who
responded swear diro, vengeance on those
instructors who failed to report for work.
“The mill-race runs cold,” they say,
nodding significantly among themselves.
Fake $15,000 Check Decided
Location of State University
How come the University of Oregon I
to be located at Eugene, anyway, instead
of Monmouth or Salem, or some other
location? How dome?
It is not due to the prominent citi
zens, the lawyers, or the politicians, but
to an impecunious celebrity of Eugene
who passed most of his time sitting
’round the stoves of the dry goods stores
giving his opinion on weighty matters of
When in 1872 the state legislature
passed an enabling act making possible
the establishing of a state university, it
was provided that the town subscribing
$50,000 by a certain date should be se
lected as the site of the University. Eu
gene was a little, scraggly village, with
out pavement, sidewalks, or much of any
thing. But the people had ambition and
immediately began canvassing for sub
scriptions to raise the $50,000. Labor,
board for workmen, lumber, nails, bricks,
glass, etc., as well as money, were do
Finally every resource had been ex
liausted and only $35,000 had been
raised. Townspeople could give no more
and the neighboring farmers had donated
everything from laying hens to the wheat
crop in the field. It looked as if Mon
mouth, the only remaining rival in the
race, would get the University.
A council was held ’round one of the
stoves in a downtown store. The rescu
ing hero mentioned above, whose name is
known to all old-timers, was present as
usual and learned of the dilemma.
“Gimme that paper,” he said, and
wrote his name down for a $15,000 sub

pay it--but. the legal requirements had
been met and the legislature was noti
fied that the prescribed sum had been

sity was an accomplished feet, donations
in excess of the amount lacking were
secured from various sources, but it
was the $15,000 subscription that brought
the University to Eugene.

The freshmen won the baseball gdine

’ SYMPHONY SOLOIST
| David Campbell Ranked High
> By Dean Landsbury.
David Campbell, soloist for the Port
land Symphonic Orchestra which will ap
pear here Saturday evening, May 7, was
formerly a student in the University of
Oregon and is well known on the campus
and in Eugene. He was director of music
at Whitman College for two years. He
studied abroad under Rudolph Can?:, fam
ous Swiss pianist and teacher. He wus
beginning a promising career in Europe
when the war broke out in 191.4. He
v returned to tlio United States, enlisted
in the army and returned to Europe, this
time as a member of the American ex
peditionary forces. He is at the present
time director of the Ellison-White Con
servatory of Music and is popular
throughout the northwest as a concert
Dr. John Landsbury, dean of the school
of music, inspeaking of ’Mr. Campbell,
said: “I eonsider him one of the greatest
pianists on the Pacific coast, and one of
the greatest of the younger generation of
pianists. lie has magnificent technique
and draws wonderful tones from the
piano. His interpretations are both
scholarly and individual. He has that
rare thing—musical intelligence.
“The concerts by Tschaikowsky, which
Mr. Campbell will give in Eugene, is one
of the greatest compositions ever writ
ten for the piano and considered by many
people one of the greatest concerts ever
“It abounds in dazzling technical effect
and at the same time is full of melodies
that can be easily grasped by an average
listener. It is distinctly Slavic in char
acter, almost ‘barbarously splendid,’ fulj
of both pianistic and. orchestral color,
and colossal in conception.”
The office of the Alumni secretary in
Johnson hall is the headquarters for the
sale of student tickets to the concert.
Training Designed to Fit Men
For Officers In Regular
Army Service. *
DEGREE OF BACHELOR
OF SCIENCE PLANNED
West Point Is Unable to Fill
Need; Men With College
‘‘The four-year curriculum for major
students in the department of military
sciencf. which has just been authorized
by the board of higher curricula at Tort
land, is one step in advance of the vcgu
I lar R. O. T. C. course," says Major Ray
mond C. Baird, commandant of the Uni
versity R. O. T. C. unit. “This course
was outlined for our military department
last, fall and approved by the University,”
continued the major. “To my knowledge,
0. A. Cl. is the only other college where
a similar course has been thought of
and it will probably be adopted there.
18,000 Officers Needed.
“The purpose of this course is to train
• for army service those students who
wash to enter the army bh their life
work, just as the school of commerce
trains students for (he business world,
and the other schools and departments
train for the various professions. Ae
•ording to the latest legislation by the
war department, about IS,000 officers
are needed for the regular army. West
Point can not graduate a sufficient num
ber of officers to supply the demand, so
the rest of the army officers will have
to come from our state and civil institu
tions. Men who have had a broad and
liberal education are the kind wanted
for army service and for this reason we
have prepared this four-year curriculum
in the military science department here.
Course to Lead to B. S.
I “Our new plan requires courses in lib
eral arts along with the study of mili
tary tactics, loading t;o the degree of B.
S. at the end of four years,” explained
the major. “This training prepares a man
for his officer’s examination, which he
must pass before he can get, his com
mission. We can not. as yet, give a stu
dent who has successfully completed this
four-year course his commission, but we
are hoping that the war department will
enact such legislation.”
According to Mhjor Baird, there are
two freshmen majoring in this course
this year, this being the first year that
it hns been offered at the University.
