Coach Hayward Will Enter 12
Contestants; Varsity Is
Conceded Chance
) Strachan, Walkley, Koepp and
Spearow Considered to
Be Point Winners
The deciding track meet of the sea
son is at hand. Tomorrow 12 Oregon
athletes, the best that Coach Bill Hay
ward has been able to develop during
the season, will match their prowess
against the cream of the west coast,
in the Pacific Coast-Northwest Confer
ence meet at Seattle. Most of the men
left yesterday. Hayward and Captain
<Jlen Walkley went the day before.
Plenty of time was allowed to give
the tracksters time to accustom them
selves to new surroundings- and re
cover from the effects of the train
Hayward and his proteges have had
an nphill fight this year, because of
lack of experienced material, but the
coach is well pleased with the way
things have turned out thus far. While
no record breakers have been un
earthed, the Lemon Yellow aggregation
has advanced to the place where they
are sure of a goodly number of points
against any competitors, and where
they may be expected to come out at
least among the first in this last big
meet of the year.
Spruits mil Be Close
The outcome of tlrP*lprints has been
^ the subject of much interesting specu
lation in University athletic circles.
First place seems to lie between Ole
Larson of Oregon and Vic Hurley of
"Washington, and while Larson out
distanced the U. of W. veteran in the
dual meet here, it was only by a few
inches, it being reported that both
men broke the tape. Track followers
seem of the opinion that Hurley will
be able to make a better showing on
the home track.
Scotty Strachan is the best weight
man brought out here this year, and
it looks as though he had a cinch on
the shot put. He has come out easy
winner in this event against both the
Aggies and Washington, and no one
among the competitors has been able
to come up to his mark. Scotty will
also throw the javelin and discus.
Oregon Weak in Hurdles
Oregon’s most vulnerable spot is in
the hurdles. Neither high nor low
hurdlers seem to be able to break away
for a first place. Washington took two
places in the 120 yard high hurdles
last week on Hayward field, and all
three in the 220 yard low hurdles.
However, it is hoped that the rest of
the team will he able to overcome this
handicap in other events.
The veteran Oregon miler, Glen
Walkley, is in fighting trim for his
race, and it should be a good one from
all indications. Some very strong mile
^ runners have come out this year on
the coast, and no one has it on the
hip as yet. Walkley’s hard training
during the past two weeks has added
to his ability, and followers expect
that he will run a better race than any
previous one this year.

Girls9 Glee Club Triumphs
In Melodious Twilight Sing
Soft voices, rich in harmony, blended I
with the evening song of the birds and!
of the night wind, in the twilight con-!
cert of the girls’ glee club, held on*
the steps of McClure last night.
When the first clear notes of “Indian
Mountain” by Cadman rang forth
across the campus, the sun was just1
setting behind old Deady. The gentle:
wind from the sweet smelling reaches
of the upper McKenzie carried the
melody far down through the blooming:
array of flowers which skirts “Hello!
Lane” and for a time the usual mat-j
ter-of-fact air of the campus was
changed into a dreamland.
The ever popular “Allah’s Holiday”!
had a charming eastern thread whieh
ran through the composition and trans
ported the pensive crowd far away to
the land of mosques and sultans. A j
► more difficult work was “A Dream”:
by Grieg. The intricate interwoven
parts, done so well, were a true tribute
to the work of John Stark Evans, the
Of all the mass singing, “Songs My
Mother Taught Me” was the best done
and had the most appeal. A rather sad, I
thoughtful note predominated, and
there was a suspicion of moisture in
the eyes of some who stood near enough
to get the full significance of the
It was just as the dark green of the
ivy-clad walls of old McClure were fad
ing into deepening shadows of the'
spring evening that the triumphant
note of “My Day," interpreted by the
silvery voice of Joanna James, floated
to the audience, which stood spell
bound on the soft turf in the twilight.
The program was concluded by three
Indian songs by Cadman, “Land of the
Sky Blue Water,” “Far Off I Hear a
Lover’s Flute” and “When the Moon
Drops Low.” The happy thrill of the
first and the romantic touch of the
last were a fitting close to the group.
Presentation Program Will
Take Place in Woman’s
Building at 2:30
Prominent Artists and Art
Critics to Judge; Many
Guests Expected
The opening of an oriental treasure
house, such as the Chinese Aladdin prob
ably never dreamed of in the days of his
glory, will occur when the University of
Oregon formally receives the generous
gift of Mrs. Gertrude Bass Warner to
the institution. The gift is known- as
the “Murray Warner Collection’’ in
memory of the donor’s husband, who
was for many years a representative of
the United States government in China.
The motive of Mrs. Warner in present
ing this rare collection of easte»« art
antiques to the University is twofold, to
open the doors to the students in the
study and appreciation of art, which is
not merely a plaster cast of classic stat
uary, or a modern half-tone of old mas
terpieces, and secondly to try to bring
the people of America into closer sym
pathy with those of the east by ac
quainting them with the ideas and ideals
of the Orient, woven into the very fabric
of the rare tapestries, and welded into
the antique brasses, as art, world-wide,
expresses the spirit of ifs creators and
Faculty Art Work Exhibited

gram of the University, which begins

same day the school presents an exhibi
tion of the work of its faculty in the
Woman’s building.
Governor Olcott to Be Here
Governor Olcott, Superintendent and
Mrs. J. A. Churchill will be among the

teen hundred invitations have been sent
;o state residents to attend the program,

ie shared by as many as possible of the
people of the state. The Museum, which
is on the third floor of the Woman’s
Duilding, immediately across the hall
from the Woman’s League rooms, in
which conventions are frequently held,
will be open from 9 a. m. to 9 p. m. on
May 29, the day of acceptance, and from
2 to 4 p. m. daily thereafter.
After the program there will be a re
jeption in the Woman’s building, for
Mrs. Warner and a few friends, and tea
will be served. Those receiving with
Mrs. Werner are Mrs. Fairbanks, Mrs.
Schroff, Miss Fox, Mrs. Seaton and Mrs.

Self-sacrifice Is Keynote of
Sumner’s Assembly Talk;
Counsel Is Given
Oregon’s Progress .Interests
Speaker; Notes Changes
for the Better
An earnest appeal to the University
students to be “ Oreathearts' ’ and to
undergo self-sacrifice in order to help
those less fortunate in life’s struggles,
was made by the Bight Reverend Waiter
T. Sumner, Episcopal bishop of Oregon,
who addressed the regular assembly
Thursday morning. His topic was
“Greatheart,” the altruistic character
from Bunyan’s * ‘ Pilgrim’s Progress, ’ ’
who was endowed with the virtues of un
selfishness £md self-sacrifice which
were the keynotes of Bishop Sumner’s
‘ ‘ Selfishness is the seeking of one’s
own good at the expense of another, ’ ’
declared the bishop, in endeavoring to dis
close the pernicious effect this vice has
upon the welfare of humanity. Individ
uals are so obsessed with selfishnoss that
soon they become creatures of self-pity.
They deceive themselves into believing
that “the world owes them a living, and
that the world has not done for them
what it has for others.’’ They go on
lamenting their condition so that
life becomes intolerable.
Causes of Selfishness Given
The bishop explained that selfishness
on the part of individuals was from two |
causes. In the first place a knowledge j
or philosophy of life is entirely lacking, |
he said. This weakness can be overcome
through the teachings of Christianity, j
The other cause is that false attitude to
ward life of wondering why a more de
serving allotment of all the things seen
in this world is not possible.
Another factor that branches out from
selfishness is pain, said the bishop. Few
there are that can bear up under it foT
their own sakes or for the happiness that
may accrue to others. “Pain,” as he
expressed it, “is a wonderful messenger,
and can be of the greatest use to human
ity.’’ Unbearable to the point, of des
pondency, pain should develop in the in
dividual a strong character wherein lies
the potent power and willingness to serve I
Then if individuals do not make a suc
cess in some calling which they undertake
they become sadly disappointed, he con
tinued. But this should not hinder a
man; he should not give up the fight. 1
Disappointment an Incentive
Instead, disappointment ought to be
an incentive to continue life’s struggles
until some satisfying task is accomplished. |
Don’t try to be anybody or don’t try to !
accomplish anything and you will not be j
disappointed,’’ he advised. As one goes j
forward in life, greater responsibilities {
are inevitable and greater discourage- j
inents are bound to come. Nevertheless j
it is a necessary counterpart of life, and ;
whatever comes there is no occasion for ‘
Bishop Sumner further asserted that
the character of man continues to be
built up under the tortures of prosecution
and injustice. “It is a mighty gratify
ing thing that the papers show up the
men who have committed themselves to
wrong, for they should strive to do good
thereafter,’’ he added. Under any cir
cumstance in which an injustice has been
done you go forth in a spirit of love to
right the wrong, not in a spirit of re
Faith an Assurance of Content
Contact with some institution where j
many unfortunate people are secluded
from the outer world would reveal to any
rational being the foibleness of self-pity,
he emphasized. Nothing broadens the
character more and widens the viewpoint
than the experience of witnessing, for
instance, in some hospital the miser
ableness of humans who are really
happy. “Faith in the power above that
all things are done right” is an as
surance of peace and contentment.
Every man has a certain God-given
gift that he should make the most of,
explained the bishop. Coupled with hope
and courage no being can fail to reach
his goal in life.
At the opening of the address, Bishop
Sumner spoke eommendably of the great
progress made at the University. “All
the changes are for the better, but that
which counts for the most is the spirit of
the University. The University is not
its bnildings and its faculty staff. It is
