AT R. 0. T. C. REVIEW
The issuing of commissions as officers j
and warrants as non-commissioned offi
cers in the University E. O. T. C. unit!
was the occasion of a review on the mili-!
tary drill grounds yesterday morning at |
11 o’clock and a presentation ceremony!
at which President Campbell spoke about
the national expediency of military train
ing and the reason for college E. O. T.
C. work. With the flashing of swords
in salute, the band playing martial music j
and the batallion in allignment, the cadets :
and officers to be presented commisions
and warrants marched forward and faced
the reviewing party, made up of Presi
dent Campbell, Major Carr of Camp
Lewis and Major Baird, head of the Uni
versity military department.
President Campbell said that although
the importance of the E. O. T. C. was dif
ficult to understand by some, he himself
realized its value, because he had seen
the conditions and reactions of two wars
and in each instance, although the na
tion’s young men were willing to serve,
there was little preparedness and much
resultant needless sacrifice. President
Campbell noted that after wars as a rule,
the people believe that there will be no
more war—a belief which many are now
hopefully entertaining. Wars have come
though, in spite of this.
preparation serious work
“In the face of the situation in Eu
rope,” said the president, “it may be
but the turn of a hair one way or the
other that will cause another outbreak.”
He belives it is probable that war is not
done for, although leading minds are oc
cupied with preventive schemes. “We
should take seriously all this work of
preparation,” he said, ami pointed out
that in the event of war, college military
training not only stand the nation in good
stead but will give the student a good
lead in the service.
Major Baird’s work in connection with
the University R. O. T. C. was warmly
praised bv the president. He states that
in spite of the difficulty of reorganizing
the college military force from its condi
tion during the world war. Major Baird
has brought the unit into a shape of
which the University has occasion to be
proud of. President Campbell character
ized Major Baird as a wise organizer
and director and a good educator. Major
Baird replied that the president’s assis
tance, more than anything else, had
helped him in his work.
The commissions and warrants issued
yesterday morning went to men who have
acted as commissioned and non-commis
sioned officers in the B. O. T. C. at var
ious times during the college year now
approaching its finish. One commission

lieutenants, fourteen as second lieuten

OREGON TRACK MEN
(Continued from page one)
Snook had a sore foot, but “Ole” is
out to win and has a good chance to
repeat. Oberteuffer won the 220 from
Snook, but Hurley beat him out by
inches. Obie is looked to place well
up in the lead though, and if every
thing breaks right, may take a first.
STRACHAN LOOKS BEST IN SHOT
Scotty Strachan has led the coast in
the shot this year and unless some
rival comes out with an unexpected
burst of strength, will capture this
event. Scotty should also place in the
javelin and discus. Peltier runs a
! pretty half after his season’s training,
and although Ray Dodge of O. A. C.
and Pratt of Washington, who hold
the coast record in this event, are
booked to beat him, he may surprise
the followers of track in this race.
The hurdles have been the weak
place on Oregon’s track teams for the
last four or five years, and this year
is no exception. Although Art Kuhn
hausen may place in the high sticks,
his chances in the low hurdles are slim,
unless an unlooked-for burst of speed
comes to him.
The relay team has made no excep
tional time this season, but at that
should be able to pick off one of the
leading places, if not first, since all
the Oregon men will enter this race
fresh, as none are booked for any other
race, while the relay men from the
other colleges will no doubt be entered
in other events, aiding the Varsity’s
Most of the 12 men leave today, al
though Coach Hayward and Captain
Glen Walkley with several others left
for Seattle yesterday.
Text Book Trade
Of Co-op f or Year
The Co op store has done $25,000 worth
of business in text-books alone this year,
according to M. F. McClain, manager.
“We sell text books at the prices
quoted by the publishers and assume the
freight and express charges ourselves, ’ ’
ha said. ‘ ‘ In other words, the students
at the University pay the same price for
a book that he buys at the Co-op store
as does the student of Harvard, Yale or
Princeton who buys the book in the city
where it is published. ’ ’ The Co-op does
make a profit, and must, if it is to con
tinue to operate, but the profit is not
made on the text books, according to Mr.
At a meeting of the board of control
of the Co-op Tuesday evening it was de
cided that a dividend of ten per cent in
trade, or six per cent in cash would be
paid student members of the association
at the end of the year. At this meeting
Jack Meyers was elected to fill the place
on the board of control made vacant by
the resignation of Edward Keeler.
The co-op fiscal year ends in June and
all dividend tickets should be turned in
at that time, but the time limit is set foi
the last of June, and all tickets must ab
solutely be in at that time.
Girls’ Glee Will
Give Out Door
Another of the popular open air
concerts will be given this evening
from the stepB of MeClure hall. The
University Girls’ Glee club will fur
niBh the program which will begin
promptly at 7:15 and probably will not
last more than 45 minutes. Chorus
ami solo numbers will be featured, ac
cording to John Stark Evans, director.
There will probably be but one more
of these concerts this year and this
will be the last appearance of the
Girls’ Glee club.
60 DELEGATES WILL ATTEND
Sixty delegates have accepted the
invitation of the department of Eng
lish of the University of Illinois for
the high school journalists’ conference.
More than half the delegates will be
CITY EDITOR H
OF OREGOliN GIVES
Horace E. Thomas, city editor of the
Oregonian, believes in the work of the
University whole-heartedly. He said
so in a talk Wednesday morning before j
Professor George Turnbull's class in
reporting, which, with Dean Allen’s
class in editing, was the reason for
his trip to Eugene.
“I have never seen a graduate from
the University of Oregon school of
journalism fail,” he declared in dis
cussing the work done here.
Outlining the work of a city editor,:
he told how big stories are covered,
how reporters are expected to work,
and of the activities necessary to the
publication of a great metropolitan
Although he regretted the so-called'
“yellow journalism” of Hearst news- ^ |
papers, Mr. Thomas declared that
William Randolph Hearst was the |
leader in the movement to play up
news according to its value.
The speaker urged the youthful
writers to keep their work lively and
to avoid" “sameness” in style. He de
clared that the paper depends largely
upon the work of the reporter and that
each “cub” has an important place to
fill in the making of a successful paper.
Mr. Thomas was unable to stay in
Eugene until evening, when he was to
have been initiated into the Oregon
chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, men’s na
tional honorary journalism fraternity.
A discussion of the choice of ma
terial for the feature section of the
Sunday newspaper took up most of the
10 o’clock editing class period over
which Mr. Thomas presided. The
problem of the editor of the Sunday
supplement lies chiefly in striking the
proper medium between the sensational
and the ultra-conservative in the nature
of feature material, the editor said.
There are many news syndicates
sending out all classes of pages for
Sunday papers. The best papers are
trying to steer away from the exag
gerated and the suggestive, he con
tinued, the idfea being to make the sec
tion attractive and at the same time to
put out a paper that can do no harm.
The Sunday paper should bo of a nature
that it can be safely sent into the home.
Mr. Thomas, who motored to Eugene,
was accompanied by Mrs. Thomas and
by Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Callvert of Port
land. Mr. Callvert is associate editor
of the Oregonian. While in the city
they were guests of Dr. and Mrs. D.
E. Lancefield, brother-in-law and sis
ter of Mr. Thomas. At noon Mr.
Thomas and Mr. Callvert were the
guests of Sigma Chi fraternity at lunch.
