Whose Turn Now?
Lack of funds has been consistently held forth on all sides recently
as the reason for the abominable facilities for tennis players as well
as for the fact that better equipment has not been provided for the
members of the Varsity athletic teams. A perfectly good reason,
yet one which can only be met by the proper amount of persuasion
and the bringing of the true conditions into the light.
The athletic program here at Oregon this year has become a
pretentious student activity, and rightfully, for there is no question
ing the benefits of physical development. But it is high time that
obsolete equipment be thrown into the discard and needed facilities
added. The cry of lack of funds has apparently been sufficiently j
loud in the past and all agitation has been kindly suspended by those
who are suffering from the inadequacy of equipment.
In a University where the school of physical education has built
up such an extensive plan for the proper amount of physical exercise
for each student, the institution should not be found manting when it
comes to providing the means for efficiency in this physical training.
Three tennis courts for the entire student body and ragged nets and
uneven concrete flooring in these are one example of the need of
better facilities. The fact that teams entered in the intramural base
ball competition are furnishing their own equipment is another.
The need of more equipment for the members of the Varsity squads
who are participating in intercollegiate athletics is urgent, yet the
condition of the treasury of the A. S. U. 0. is such that economy
which far exceeds the better judgment of the coaches is imperative.
Since the value of physical education is emphasized to such a de
gree, which is not exceptionally high by any means, then the Univer
sity should be willing to aid financially in the providing of proper
facilities and equipment which will result in the most efficient train
ing. Very little help has been forthcoming from the coffers of the
University in the past, and the extent to which the students have
had to provide their own facilities includes the building of Hayward
Field with its grandstand and bleachers.
Where an institution is provided near a population center, gate
receipts at intercollegiate games help meet the needs. Here a dif
ferent problem is faced. Oregon must compete with the other institu
tions on the Pacific Coast and the teams here must be of the same
high quality in comparison that they have in the past.
This being true, then it is up to the University to do its bit. The
A. S. U. O. has about reached the limit.
The Democratic Solution
A prominent faculty member has proposed that since the six-day
week plan has been declared undemocratic and not in keeping with
the principles of a University where “work is legal tender for an
education,’ the sixth day he added along with an extra hour of credit.
Under such an arrangement, the present 3(5 weeks of the University
courses of a five day-week basis, could be shortened to 30 weeks with
the added day. Thus in the end there would still be ISO days of prep
art ion and recitation but the year spent at the University would be
shortened by six weeks,—and the need for the odd job would decrease
in proportion.
The readiness with which Kugene merchants respond to the re
quests of the University is further exemplified recently by the offer
ings of prize awards by several of the enterprising firms to students
interested in advertising. The prize winning ads will appear in The

Women to Conduct Square Mix-up
Affair at Men’s Gym
Another lottery! Maybe it will be
a square one, but probably not. The
junior women are going to have it, for
a purpose.
The juniors are planning to have an
informal dance on April 21, the night
of the sophomore lottery, so that the
young ones won't get ahead of them, or!
perhaps it is because they had such a i
good time at their .Tazz Jinks. Any
way, it is supposed to be a ladies’
choice affair. In order to prevent any
rivalry or competition over the hand
some juniors, they have decided to have
a lottery and mix the class up a little.
No committee has been appointed
yet, according to Tommy Wyatt. The
dance is to be at the men's gymnasium,
if possible.

Three from Campus Attend Portland
Home Economics Conference
Miss Lilian Tingle, head of the home
economics department, and Hazel Hauek
and Mattie Pattison, assistants in the
department, attended a conference held
in Portland during the week-end by
Mrs. Henrietta Calvin, national home
economi s expert of the Bureau of Edu
: cation at Washington, D. C.
The conference was attended by
teachers of home economics and domes
tic science from all parts of the state.
Matters of organization, teaching and
standardization were discussed.
The meeting was of special interest
because Mrs. Calvin, who as a repre
sentative of the Bureau of Education,
has been giving lectures and holding
conferences throughout the whole coun
try, was formerly head of the home eco
nomics department at O. A. C. and,
Miss Tingle says, is well known all
over the state.
