Humor Plentiful In “Nothing
But the Truth.”
Two performances of the senior class
play, “Nothing But the Truth,” will be
given tomorrow night at the F.ugene
theatre. The firsts how will begin at 7:45
pnd the “Midnight Matinee” will jbe
staged at 10:15. The permission of the
faculty has been secured to stage the
second show in order that all of the stu

The line for tickets started this morn
ing at 10 o'clock and late this afternoon,
with several houses in line, it was de
cided that the best, way to award tickets
was to stage a lottery. In the drawing
this afternoon each campus organization
and the halls of*residence were repre
sented. Each was allowed 25 tickets. It
was then decided that two shows would
be put on in order that the entire campus
and others wishing tickets could be ac
commodated. There will be no reserved
seats for the second show. First come,
first served. From the interest mani
fested today there will be capacity houses
for both performances.
Dress Rehearsal Good.
Dress rehearsal was held last night
and the lines went very well. It is ex
pected that the production tomorrow
night will surpass previous plays of this
nature in both humor of the plot and in
A sincere effort has been made to al
low all those wishing to see the play, do
so. It is suggested that houses having a

There are so many clever situations

Irish Riots Tame Alongside
’97 Junior Week-End Doings
The history of Junior Week-end may
I'p divided into two periods; the period
of destruction (1897-1903) and the per
iod of construction which began in 1903
and continues up to the present time.
J he period of destruction gets its name
from the battles staged between the
juniors and the sophomores on the event
°f the raising of the junior flag. The
latter period, or period of construction,
Paine about when the two fighting fac
tions agreed to a truce and determined to
devote the time they had hitherto given (
to fighting, to cleaning up and improving
the campus.
What we know now as Junior Week-,
and was known in the eighties and the
early nineties as Junior Day. and was
founded by Professor Luella Clay Car
s°u. This day was generally held on the
third Friday in May, and the program
for several years consisted in orations
made by the members of the junior class,
•v»me musical selections and perchance a
banquet.' In order to give a deeper sig
nificance to the day, the juniors deter
mined to raise, on the flagpole which
v ns situated close to the northwest cor
ner of Villard hall, a flag bearing their
class colors. Thus one more attraction
"’us added to Junior Day. namely, the
flag raising ceremony which generally
lf,||k place in the morning.
This ceremony, however, did not long
maintain tho solemnity and dignity given
it by its founders as tho sophomores be
gan to dispute the right of the juniors
to raise this emblem and Junior Day
morning soon became the scene of strifes
which would make the Irish situation
look like a sleeping babe. Black-eyes,
bloody noses, broken teeth and other
minor casualties were freely given and
received by both sides. Nor was strategy
lacking, for one can today .hear from the
old grads tales as to how they, in their
junior year, had “slickered” the sophs
or again how they in their sophomore
year had prevented the juniors from
raising their flag.
One of these tales runs something like I
this: The juniors on Thursday even
ing secured a large bos and fastened it
to the flagpole where no one could reach,
and in it stationed a sentry who was to
take care of the class flag and to raise
it in the morning. The sophomores, how
ever. during the night collected all of
the fire hose on the campus, and taking
it on top of Villard hall directed a steady
stream of water into the box on the
sleeping sentry. The force o the water
was so strong "that the scotjy soon sur
rendered the flag, and thin a sophomore
victory was won. Ever after this mem
orable night the juniors not only fought
for the possession of the flag staff but

Alleged Oppression Said to Be

Methodist Authority Points to
Christianization of Mil- !
lions In Orient.
“Governments nre just as divine ns
churches,” declared Bishop Homer Clyde
Stunts in his dynamic talk to the stu
dents at student assembly yesterday, in
which he praised England for bringing to
India a state of “absolute order.”
To carry out God’s program as laid
down by Christ, said the bishop, is the
biggest contract human mind ever con
ceived of. a gigantic undertaking, beside
which all man-made plans sink into in
fantile proportions. Involving as it does
not only the Christianizing of heathen
peoples, but the convincing of millions of
the pagan faith, Buddhism and others, it
is a stupendous task into which comes
much that may at first appear like cruel
ty and oppression. As an example of
this, he cited Leopold of Belgium, in Af
rica. Leopold is said to have been a
cruel tyrant, said the speaker, but he
was like a Sunday school teacher com
pared with what went before him. By his
rule, he did away with many supersti
tious beliefs and cruelties of the worst
kind, and left an improved condition.
Mogul Rule Assailed.
“God has to move in big ways, and
move slowly,” said the bishop. He point
ed out other instances in the world’s
history which are sometimes referred to
as conquests and oppressions, when in
reality, the conditions following them
have been great improvements on the
preceding state. This, he declared, is the
case with England’s control of India. He
reviewed briefly the history of India,
pointing out the 800-year rule of the
Mogul empire which he characterized as
a “carnival of cruelty.”
“Over against these centuries of un
imaginable cruelty, oppression and
waste,” he said, “stands 62 years of ab
solute order under British rule.” The
greatest thing we have to be thankful

Senior Cops Will Duck All

The rumor that only freshmen were

cleanup this morning was very unoffi

traditions, “everybody works,” either

Work starts promptly at 0 o’clock, and
all men are to be at the designated meet
ing places at that time. Anyone in doubt
as to where to go can find out by re
ferring to Wednesday’s Emerald. Due
to the large number of laborers avail
able. and the efficient application of
them which has been planned, the campus
will be completely rejuvenated in time
for everyone to take part in the campus
luncheon at noon.
The work planned for this morning
includes tearing down the old track shed,
and moving the hleacners from Kincaid
field to Hayward field. New walks will

old hath houses, dressing rooms, and
tank at the Anchorage will be cleaned up.
Donald Shepard, superintendent of
grounds, will have a man with each com
mittee in order to see that all the work
is carried out properly, and according to
general plan.
Various men of the junior class have
been appointed to take charge of groups
of the student laborers. These men will
oversee the work and report anv ab
sences to the senior cops, who will ad
minister punishment, as has been done
in years past.
Washington Team Arrived
Yesterday, Others
Come Today.
Changes In Officials For Meet
Are Necessary at the
Last Moment.
Tho preliminaries in the two dashes
and the two hurdle races of the Pacific
(’oast Conference track meet will be run
off this afternoon at 3 o’clock. These
are the only events in which the pre
liminaries will be required. The Wash
ington track team arrived yesterday at
noon and the O. A. O. and W. S. C.
teams will arrive today about the same
Graduate Manager .Tack Bcnefiel has
had his men working on the track con
stantly during the past few days and it
is in the best possible shape for the pre
liminaries this afternoon. Seven men
are entered for the 100 yard dash and
nine in the 220 yard dash by the four
colleges. The hurdles are also pretty
well filled, and the preliminaries should
be good.
Largo Crowds Expected.
Large crowds are expected in from
Corvallis today. The teams are evenly
balanced and any one of the four has a
chance to win. O. A. C. stands strong
with Powell, Draper and Iiobart in the
lineup. The Aggies also have a lot of
men good for second, third and fourth
places. Washington figures high with
her sprinters and Gus Tope to use in the
weights. W. S. C. has .Tonne in the pole
vault and the high jump, and Oregon lias
Walkley in the mile. Tuck in the javelin
and Bowles in the broad jump. The team
which is able to put over the smaller
places will win with the firsts split as
they are.
Two changes in the list of officials
have been made. Robert Johnson and
J. M. Reynolds will not be able to be
present and their places have been filled
by Hal Donnelly and George Rates. The
officials will be the only ones allowed on
the oval, according to Coach Bill Hay
ward, of the Oregon team, who is direc
tor of the meet. All the officials will
wear white flannel trousers as is the
custom of the officials during the Olym
pic meets.
Tickets Going Fast.
The tickets are going in good shape
for the meet and the stands will be
filled. Men in all of the campus orga
nizations are selling and all are report
ing favorably. The V. M. O. A. will
carry tickets for those "men not living
in organizations, and they will he on sale
there today. Walter Oofoid is in charge
of selling. The men handling them in
the various houses are: A. T. ()., Ralph
Couch; Bachelordon, Dan Welch; Beta
Walter Cofoid; Chi Psi, George Shirley;
Delta Tau, Kenneth Smith; Delta Theta

Wilbur Hoyt; Fiji. Harry Hollister; Phi
Sigma Pi, Carlton Logan; S. A. E.. Har
ry Mayer; Sigma Chi, Vic Bradeson;
Sigma Nil, Bob Sheppard.
Records May Be Broken.
There is a good chance that a number
of Pacific Coast Conference track re
con's will be broken in the Saturday
events. Tuck is sure to break the jave
lin record, and Pope, of Washington
looks good to break the discus event. In
the two mile the contest will be between
Hubert, of O. A. C„ and Washburn, of
W. S. C„ both of these are fast and one
is nearly sure to lower the two mile re
cord. Hurley, of Washington, may knock
off a few notches in the low hurdles
also. .Tenne, of W. S. C„ will make a
try st the pole vault record.
A press stand is being placed at the
finish mark in order that the various
newspaper representatives will have good
positions. The Portland newspapers are
sending down special men and the meet
will get p'ent.v of publicity.
The rain of the last few days has not
damaged the track, and rain will not call
off the meet, although it may slow no
the events. The weight men usuallv
go better on a warm day. and the run
ners loosen up easier. The rain may
prevent the participants from breaking
the records that are now expected to go
Coach Poll Hayward has not determined
Ids list of entries as yet. lie still has

teams have not sent word as yet which
men they will use.

Smith and Westerman Take
Matches Yesterday.
Just after Smith and Westerman, of
Oregon, succeeded in beating Bates and
Levy, of California, in the first game of
the first doubles set in the Pacific ('oast
Conference tennis meet yesterday after
noon, tIn* rain began to fall and the set
was postponed until today.
The tournament started with n number
of fast single sets, in which the Lemon
Yellow was victorious. Harry Wester
man, Oregon, took Webber, W. S. (I.
star, into camp in two sets, score (5-4,
and (i-.'i, while Keji Smith, Oregon, also
took a couple from the Cougars when he
defeated Ileald, (5-1! and (5-."5.
Polowing true to predictions both of
the Bear players are showing up well.
They played several exhibition games be
fore the contests opened and their driv
ing ability was almost lightning-like.
Local dopesters have given them the
meet, with Stanford coming up about
second. More conservative prophets say
that; the Sun Dodgers may figure in the
finals. I
In his match with Taylor, of Wash
ington, Bates, of California, took the
first set from the northerner without
allowing him a game and also grabbed
off the second by a score of (l-.‘5. His
partner, Levy, raked Joy, of the Aggie
pair, over the coals to a tune of (5-1 in
a couple of sets.
So definite schedule lias been planned
for today and weather conditions will
determine the time of the meet.
