Speaking to the assembled students
massed in front of the University li
brary yesterday morning. Jay C. Allen
Jr., Phil Brogan, and Edwin Palmer
Hoyt told of the progress of science,
the evolution of the press, and briefly
summarized some of the intricate prob
lems of sociology. Although a vernal
deluge turned the campus into a
lacustrine setting and caused the great
crowd to appear like a sea of vari
colored umbrellas, over a thousand stu
dents crowded the space in front of
the library to the swinging doors in an
attempt to grasp every word of the
Cognizant of the value of the chant
in public speaking, the three men first
addressed the out-door audience in
unison, concisely introducing the topics
to be discussed in the ten minute ses
sion. Mr. Allen, in a clear toned voice
which was echoed back from the bronze
Pioneer, discussed some of the social
problems which now confront the stu
dents of the University. Mr. Hoyt,
gave brief illustrations of the value of
doggerel verse in modern literature.
All three men are authorities on the
subjects Vhich they discussed, having
recently been elected to Sigma Delta
Chi, national honorary journalism fra
Mr. Brogan cooperated with his fel
low speakers by holding up before the
students a huge section of a newspaper
divided into three sections. This sheet,
“The Demoniac Times,” was used by
Mr. Brogan in hig. .discussion of the
evolution of the press. This noted
speaker traced the history of the press
back to ancient Sumeria.
SCOPE OF DONUT ATHLETICS
(Continued from page one)
legiate competition and further intra
mural athletics tend to increase the
appreciation of intercollegiate ath
letics and aid in their success.”
Jack Benefiel is behind the extensive
program very strongly. Speaking of
the function of doughnut sports, Bene
fiel said, “We want the intramurals to
be a laboratory for varsity material.
We want to develop men for the varsity
teams, but more than that we want the
main body of the undergraduates to
get into athletics. When that
state is reached then the varsity teams j
will be what they should be, the abso
lute best in the way of physical ability
that this institution affords.”
Hank Foster, assistant track mentor,
believes whole heartedly in the scheme
and hopes some day that the doughnut
interest will equal that at the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania where, as Hank
put it, “every man that had the use
of both his legs was actively engaged
in some sort of athletic competition.”

and especially in track will arouse
undergraduate interest in track and
enable Oregon to resume the position
of cinder path superiority that the
Lemon-Yellow maintained up to four or
five years ago.”
Referring to the necessity for pre
liminary training on the part of men
before entering into the more active
sports such as track, wrestling, and
boxing. Director Scott said, “Before
men can enter meets in wrestling and
boxing, swimming or track it will be
necessary that they undergo a thorough
examination. Furthermore, before meu
can be in a position to earn points for
their organizations they will have to
turn out regularly for practice and
secure some necessary preliminary

be splendid training for the students
who would serve on the various com
mittees, and would have a marked ef
fect upon the student body as a whole,
I'by developing in the students a certain
! thoughtfulness and attitude of respon
sibility to a degree not now known.”
There is a possibility that the stu
dents would be likely to feel on trial,
if student government were inaugur
ated, and for this reason might be over
'severe in their judgments, particularly
as concerned disciplinary measures,
'Dean Straub pointed out. In this pos
sibility, as he sees it, lies his only
objection to the proposed system. This
! fault, he believe could be obviated if (1
: the faculty should reserve the right of
, veto, as is done in some colleges.
Not less than five years would be
'necessary for a fair trial of the system,
according to the dean. At the ond of
; this time, the Associated Students
: might vote to accept or to reject it per
Student opinion. Dean Straub be
lieves, seems to disapprove of the adop
tion of the system, largely because of
‘the added work and responsibility
which it would involve. The fact that
its introduction would mean the en
forcement of an honor system to neces
sitating the students to report cases
of cheating is another reason why the
students are loathe to accept it, in
Dean Straub's opinion.
“I want to feel that this student
body is built on honor. Student govern
ment will do much toward making this
a reality and I myself hope and believe
that the time is not far distant when
the Associated Students will vote to try
out the system on the campus.”
WILL SPEAK AT FLORENCE
Wilkie N. Collins, instructor in the
department of rhetoric and American
literature, will go to Florence February
25 to attend a local teachers’ institute.
He will speak on “ A Free Hand for
High School English Teachers.” Mr.
Collins says that his ideas are quite
revolutionary, here, at least.
