Coach Making No Predictions of Outcome; Track and Field In Shape. OREGON MAY SPRING SURPRISE IN SPRINTS Larson’s Showing at Seattle Encouraging; Tuck Ready to Hurl Javelin. The Oregon Aggies will again figure prominently in the opening ceremonies on Hayward field, for this afternoon the Corvallis track team will meet the varsity squad in the opening meet for the new oval. The big dual contest is scheduled to start promptly at 2:15 o’clock and, ac cording to all the advance information it will be one of the closest meets staged between the two institutions in several years. Trainer “Dad” Butler, of the Aggie squad, puts in most of bis time in the spring training season whipping his ath letes into shape for the annual dual meet with Oregon, but Trainer “Bill” Hay ward is not making any predictions as to the outcome, and it is probable that some surprises will be sprung on the vis iting team during the afternoon. The Aggies are rated pretty strong this year however, and Oregon’s showing against the Washington team in Seattle last week does not give Oregon any of the dope. Fast Meet Expected. The new track and pits on Hayward field are in perfect condition and the ova) is one of the finest on the Pacific coast at present. With a perfect day today everything will point to a fast meet and a possibility of several coast records go ing by the boards is not improbable. In the first list, Arthur Tuck’s name was omitted from the javelin entries. Tuck will be entered in the javelin event, and he may even beat his mark of 192; feet, four inches, with which he broke the Pacific coast record at Seattle last we,ek. Hayward was uncertain last night about placing Wyatt in the half-mile event, as this will no doubt mean that Oregon’s chances to win the relay will he lessened. Wyatt has been running the 440 yard dash and it is possible that he will not run in this event today but will take part in the half mile. Other entries are not settled, according to the Oregon coach and trainer. The list is printed below, but it is probable that a number of changes may be made at the last minute. Little Known of 0. A.^C. Little dope has been emanating from tlie Aggie training quarters and just what the comparative ability Of the entries will be cannot be speculated on. Snook. Jen nings and Cook are the entries tor the sprints from Corvallis, while Larsen Hemenway and Oberteuffer will take care of the varsity sprint entries. Lar son showed up even better than the Wash ington sprinters at the dual meet at Se attle and would have captured first place in the 220 event had it not been for a mistake on his part in judging the 100 yard finish post to be tlie finish post for the 220-yard dash. He will no doubt give the Aggies a hard race today, and Hemenway and Oberteuffer are showing (Continued on Page o.)

Ono of tho great needs in the United States is to have a larger group of peo ple in ordinary occupations who are compelled to use their talents for the public good, said Graham Taylor, one of the foremost social service workers in the country, in speaking on “Making Your Occupation Your Calling,” at the regular meeting of the Y\ W. C. A. Thurs day afternoon. “The community will serve you in the same proportion that you serve them.” declared the speaker. It is necessary for people to think about the community and they should make their occupation subservient to their calling. Women are just as respon sible now as the men and they must do their share of the work. Whether in building a home, or running a business, it can be made to serve the community. Mr. Taylor compared the city govern ment with housekeeping. Mrs. Blaine, a housekeeper and a property owner, help ed in having an ordinance passed whereby | it was compulsory to have plenty of light and air in all bedrooms. She made her occupation of house owner and house keeper tributary to her calling as a Chi cago citizen. Jane Adams was garbage inspector in one of the Chicago dis tricts, but at the same time she made life in this part of the city more pleas ant. Teaching is getting to be unpopular among college girls, they are looking for a wider range. They should have this, but there is a great opportunity in this sort of work. “I wouldn’t let specialized lines get a hold on your work ttoo soon because it has a tendency to narrow views. People in any occupation need to know a lot about all other work and it is necessary to have training in as many different things as possible,” con tinued Mr. Taylor. College* people should he promt euuuS>. to know that they should not.be narrow minded. “You should take a more pro phetie outlook on life.” he said smilingly at this group of eollege women. You can promote other things for the good of the community and indirectly they will have good results for the occupation that you are in.” declared the speaker. Peo ple simply can not be selfish. T)r Taylor told some of his own per sonal experiences to illustrate PociaT work His family moved into the for eign districts in Chicago and worked with the people and brought their children up in this community. “It was just the same as going to a foreign country, and T believe that all of my children have had more experience and real help than lots of the children who live in the best communities.” Mr. Taylor said m con cluding.

HE STEWART 11 CLAIRE KEENEY STIR IN GUILD PRODUCTION / Loeta Rogers Cast In, Part of American Girl In England, HUMOROUS ROLES AID PLOT PRESENTATION Comedy Features Especially Good; Small Audiences Attend Shows. With Irene Stewart and Claire Keeney playing opposite each other in the leads and Leota Rogers and Ted Baker in the ingenue and juvenile roles, respectively, Oscar Wilde’k “A Woman of No Im portance,” was given last night and Thursday to small but appreciative audi ences in 'Guild theatre. Claire Keeney took the English char acter part of Lord Illingworth with re markable adaptability, being exceptional as a college player in giving a realistic interpretation of an English type instead of portraying it as an American varia tion. His work was the best of the en tire cast in technique,, with perhaps an exception in Irene Stewart, although she did not play Mrs. Arbuthnot quite, as convincingly English as did her partner. In a strongly emotional part, she played it to the fullest possibility, winning the general approval of her audience. in rue purr or an American gin, jjoern Rogers found herself quite at home, al though it is her first straight part this year. Her interpretation was rather un usual and her mannerisms and stage presence were charming. While the type i hat Wilde depicted is not perhaps par ticularly typical of the American girl. Miss Rogers played up to the variations with exactness and precision. Ted Raker took his biggest part this winter as Gerald Arbuthnot, the best juvenile role se^n in Guild theatre this year from the popular view. He played the part with assurance and made the most of his difficult sceues. Adding much to the humor and color of the play were the parts of society la dies played by Marion Taylor, Marian Gilstarp, Doris Pittenger and Martha Rice. Mr. Kelvil, M. P., Lord Alfred and Sir John, played by Charlyle Goffreicre. Harold Brown and Reuel Moore, respec tively, were parts that helped round out the play and give color and humor to the whole performance. As the Reverend Dr. Daubeny, Carl Miller drew" many laughs with his odd intonations and dea conish ways. The parts of Francis and Alice, ser vants, were played by” Darrell Larsen and Helen Casey.

Markham's Mother a Poet; Verses of Each Printed on Same Press, 72 Years Apart Seveniy-'wc years ng^>, n poet, the mother of n poet, wrote a verse on short notice at Oregon City. Thursday even ing the son, now a famous author, dupli cated his mother’s feat—tinder circum stances which make a story. In the yiar 1S40, the family of Edwin Markham ran a general store, nursery and farm at Oregon City. The famous poet, who told the story at a banquet liven in his honor at the Osborn last night, was then about five years old. He was the youngest of 1- children, aud his mother, in addition to her multitudinous duties about the house and business, found time occasionally to write poetry. Oregon City was the literary center of the northwest at that time, said Mr. Markham, for it boasted, the first news paper founded west of the Rockies and also claimeed a poet. “It was for that reason that I chose the_town for my birthplace,” laughed the famous poet. One day, the old-fashioned steamboat whieli plied between Oregon City and Portland, ran aground on a sandbar not far below the falls, continued the speaker, and for a time the swift current threat ened to bring disaster to the stranded vessel. Among” the people who quickly gathered on shore to watch the boat’s plight was the editor of the Oregon City Spectator. He rushed here and there and finally got most of the details of the accident and by the time it was seen that it was seen that the steamer would be able to free herself and that the passen gers would be saved he had everything he needed for a story on the incident. Hastening back to the office the editor gave the shop foreman the story and which it was being set he dashed off to the Markham home. There he found Mrs. Markham in lier witchen, and at once demanded that she, as the town poet, write a poem commemorating the rescue of the passengers and ckvv from the wreck. Taking a pencil she set her self to the task and in a few minutes had the desired poem, related Dr. Mark ham, who was at her side as she wrote it. The editor rushed back to his shop, and the poem was quickly set up, placed in the center of the page with the story, and a number of copies run off on the hand press. The enterprising newspa per man then took a bunch of the papers and hurried down to the landing, arriv ing just ns the steamer eame in, nrul sold the copies of the publication to the pas sengers who read of their rescue in its columns. When the writer had finished his story. Dean Eric W. Allen, of the school of journalism, spoke up and said, “We haven't lost our pep here in Oregon yet and we can do anything now that they did 70 years ago. If you are as good a poet ns your mother, you can write a poem for me now, inside of 10 minutes, and I'll print it for you mid have copies of it ready for distribution when you have finished your talk on this even ing’s program. What is more, I will print it on the same press used by the editor you tell of in your reminiscence.” “I don’t know if I could make up a poem on the moment, but how would a quatrain that came into my head as 1 was coming into Eugene on the train do?” replied Dr. Markham. “That's fair enough,” agreed the dean, “for your mother was probably thinking of the rescue before the editor came.”* Inside of 10 minutes the poet had written out the following four-line verse and hud given it. to Dean Allen: “All my life long I praised my neigh bor—he All of his life said only ill of me. But I was well avenged, the world forsooth, Knew neither of us ever told the truth." Dean Allen at. once hastened to the University press, and there the verse was set up in type. He then locked it up in a chase and took it; over to the old Washington hand press in the shack the very same press with which the Ore gon City Spectator was printed years ago, and ran off a number of proofs. The dean then hastened to the Y. M huf, where Dr. Markham was lecturing, with half an hour to spare and at. the end of the talk distributed copies of the poem to members of the audience and gave a number of them to Dr. Markham for souvenirs. Thus it happened that |n incident of 181!) was re-acted 72 years later, with a different setting and cause, perhaps, but with everything else practically the same. It also happens that this is the first time that Dr. Markham has visited Oregon since shortly after the time of the first incident. History will repeat.

The issue will be an eight-page edition, and according to Miss Burton, will con tain a special feature section, which will be quite unlike that of former Emeralds and a section of special interest to the visiting high school students, which will show them the work of the journalism school, and give them a fair idea of what the T'niversity stands for.

The “N” is located on the mountains north of town. Leading Man In Senior Play Once Prince of Liars. John Houston has hot $10,000 that he will tell “nothing but the truth” for 24 hours and Everett Fixley, Lyle Bartho lomew and Neil Morfitt have wagered the same amount that, he can’t. Hous ton is the same man who was rated as “The Prince of Liars” last year—this is one of the interesting situations in con nection with the production of “Nothing But the Tilth,” annual senior play, to be produced at the Eugene Theatre, Friday, May 20. Houston’s stage name is Bob Bennett, Fixley is a broker and Bartholomew and Morfitt are his friends. Bob’s rash bet gets him into all sorts of difficulty and by the time the 24 hour limit is up enough funny things have happened to make “Nothing But the Truth” one of the best plays ever attempted by a Uni versity cast. Dorothy Wootten is the wife of Ralston (Pixley), the broker, and she causes her share of good comedy. Marion Gilstrap and Wanda Brown are chorus girls who furnish the scandal in the play. A grandfather clock has been ordered from Portland and will play an import ant part in the plot. Publicity is in the hands of Lyle Bartholomew and Elmer Pandell, who report considerable interest being shown in the staging of the play. The ticket sale will open Friday morn ing and houses wishing to buy tickets will have to have ther representatives in line. A limitation on the number of tickets allowed for each person will be made. Prices will be 50 cents and one dollur. CUP TO BE PRESENTED.

The officers who have just completed their term of office are: Peter Spencer, president; L. Douglass, corresponding secretary; Lester (TIadden, recording sec retary, and Lloyd Endun<l treasurer. These men were the first officers of the honorary organization, which was in stalled on the campus last February All the members of the faculty of tile school of education were members of the organization from other chapters. .Lhe general subject for discussion at Thursday’s meeting was the matter of academic freedom in the high school, ac cording to Professor Gregory, the prob lem being: Has a high school teacher the right to act and talk according to his own views, and not in accordance with the views of the public whose servant he is? “If a teacher deviates too much from his community group,” said Dr. Gregory in speaking of the discussion at the meeting, “the group soon gets rid of him. More teachers lose tbefr jobs through being unable to get nlong in their community than through not know ing the subject which they teach.” Head Bain, a graduate student in the school of education, had charge of the program. Besides Dean H. P. Sheldon. Professor Kimball Voting, ,T. C. Almack, Newton Bader, Verne Blue and Leo Coss mnn made short addresses before the members of the club, and all of the twenty-odd members who were present joined in the discussion. “Most Americans believe in democracy —unless they get elected to office or mnko money,” said Dr. II. D. Sheldon dean of the school of education, in his talk on “What is Democracy?” lie wont on to say that democracy is a thing to be achieved, and is not a gift, of nuture, as many Americans seem to regard it. “Democracy is spiritual and ideal," he said, “and still it. is a practical program. Christianity has been the greatest demo cratic force in history, not the creeds and the sects, but the spirit of Christian ity,” lie warned against the danger of trying to run schools on the principles of “big business.” Both in our schools and" in our democ racy we are prone to become engulfed (Continued on Page 3.)
