Something to Think About
The recent discussion of n. s. f. checks and of other current ques
tions has led many students to look hopefully toward the ideal of stu
dent self-government. For the moment the prospect may seem to be
fading; perhaps tomorrow it may seem brighter. To some students
self-government is something which will come in the course of time;
to others it appears too much of a burden and a task which paid help
can well assume.
Student self-government is no idle and Utopian dream. Oregon
already has many features found in the schools which are completely
governed by the student body, and the faculty is always ready to
listen to the voice of the students in matters concernig student con
Student self-government will be a distinct step forward in the
life of Oregon. Those who are most enthusiastic for its initiation
here must bear in mind, however, that until the student body is ready
and competent to administer discipline there can be no self-gov
ernment, in the fullest sense of the word.
This is not meant to discourage a movement favorable to its adop
tion ; it is merely a suggestion of a real problem which must be thor
oughly recognized by the exponents of self-government.
‘ ‘ Hit! Hit! Hit!! ” It is a cry and a shriek. Yet, too ,it is a prayer.
There is a swinging of his bat and a nervous twitching of his toe in
the dust. The strikes and balls are two and three. The pitcher curls
and uncurls. Far away the man at bat hears the entreaties of his
Alma Mater, “Hit! Hit!” For one brief moment he is the pivot point
of the Universe. He swings.
Does he hit? Perhaps.
Yet, whether he does or not, the world lives on, contrary to all
expectations. After all, the fate of the universe is not tied up in
that last pitched ball. If we win, we win. That is all. If we lose,
we can always find some good natured ground of justification; for
that is one rare privilege reserved for the game of baseball and none
What realy counts are those grand moments when we can forget
all the worry of these busy days, and lose ourselves in the happy con
fusion of flying balls and swinging bats; and join our voices and
wits to the voices and wits of a murderous crowd who are out for the
scalp and blood of the basest of all mortal criminals—the umpire.
Today we have a ball game, with plenty of promise for many of
those moments of anxious forgetfulness. Today we shall have an
umpire. If things go right, we shall also assemble a jolly, blood
thirsty horde of bleacherites, mercilessly threatneing the czar of the
game with all forms of hideous abuse. What else in the names of all
the thousand and sixty three gods on the moon could we ask?

LAW SCHOOL LIBRARY
BREWS LEGAL TILT
Sanctum of Cold Dignity is Scene of
Hot Tilt over Matter of $8.60. Both
Sides Have Confidence
The law library, serene and coldly in
tellectual, has become the center of a
hotly contested action at law and two
young men on the campus are biting
their lips in suspense, waiting for Judge
G. F. Skipworth, of the Lane county
circuit court, to sound his gavel in the !
auditorium of the Oregon buildig to
Yes, it was in the library, the holy of
holies of the law school that R V. Tay- !
lor alleges that his fellow student, M.
K. Dickey inveiged him into a game of
three cornered matching with criminal
intent, causing him to lose $8.50. Mr.
Aubrey 'fussing, attorney for the plain
tiff, is sure that he will force the de
fendant to pay back the $8.50 and that
much more, as prescribed by statute,
but Mr. Harry Skyriuan, representing
the defendant, only smiles at the con
fidence of his opponent.
Mr. Dickey will say very little about !
the ease but he smiled (and did he
wink?) when he quoted the old proverb,
“A fool and his money soon part.”
Then he added that the plaintiff is re-!
cruiting liis jury in Springfield, where
he is well known and has many
Mr. Taylor told the reporter on the
sly that the defendant is “Sliek—very
sliek.” He- adds that this is the first
time his good name has been in ques
tion and that he may even return to his
old trade of journalism if the legal
profession leads to such scandal.

Corps of University B. O. T. C.
Spirit shown by the R. O. T. C. men
was commended by the inspection board
according to Colonel W. S. Sinclair,
commander. Major H. T. Bull, who was
here last year, stated that he could see
a great change in the spirit of the men.
“I consider that the men did very
nicely considering the difficulties under
which they had to work due to the
bad weather”, said Colonel Sinclair,
“and I appreciate the interest shown
”On some of the theoretical work the
men, but was due to the fact that some

was not in anyway the fault of the

been considered as important as the

CONTEST DATE CHANGED
Winner of the Northwest Oratorical

The tryouts for the Northwest ora
torical contest which were scheduled
for Wednesday, April 25, have been
postponed until Monday, April 30, ac
cording to announcement made by Prof
fessor C. P. Thorpe of the public speak
ing department, this morning. At that
time, they will be held at 4:15 p. m.,
in Villard hall, and faculty members
of the University will act as judges.
It is expected that there will be keen
interest shown in these tryouts as there
will be a prize of $40 given to the ora
tor winning in them. The student win
ning in the tryouts will represent the
University at the final oratorical con
test to be held May 20, when the Uni
versity of Washington and the Univer
sity of Idaho will also compete. At
this contest the prize awarded to the
best orator amounts to $100.
ELSIE FERGUSON AT HEILIG
| The feminine admirers of Elsie Fer
guson, who, unquestionably, are look
! ing forward with great interest to her
appearance tonight at the Heilig, are
destined to see this popular player
wear some of her most ravishing crea
tions in “The Wheel of Life. ’’Besides
being a noted stage beauty always ex
quisitely gowned, this star has the en
vied reputation of being able to wear
clothes so distinctively that she excites
the admiration of every woman.
LOST ARTICLES ARE NUMEROUS
Hats amt caps, books, last winter’s
j rubbers, umbrellas, gloves and numer
ous other articles have been added
to the collection of lost and found ar
ticles in charge of the janitor at the
library. Many of these articles have
been turned in to the-janitor by people
finding them about the campus, while
others were left in the library and col
lected by him. Persons who have lost
i articles are asked to see the janitor, as
he may have them among his collection.
TO COMMENCE TODAY,
Price to be Reduced if Enough
Extra Books are Sold
A new opportunity will be offered
the students of the University to ee
eure additional subscriptions for the col
lege year book. Students and faculty
members can secure additional books
by leaving their subscription at the
Co-op or giving it to students who are
soliciting on the campus. The Eugene
business men will be solicited. All ex
tra subscriptions are expected to be in
by May 1, Myron Shannon, circula
tion manager said.
Jason McCune said that there would
be no extra books at the time the book
comes out in the early part of May and
advised those students who wanted
books to order them now and not to
wait until May and be disappointed.
Unles^ enough extra subscriptions
are turned in the business staff will
be unable to reduce the price of the
book to $4.50. The reduction of price
depends on the number of subscriptions
secured in this drive.
The printing of the book will be fin
ished next Saturday and the binding
will be completed about May 11. Due
to the splendid cooperation of the prin
ters the book will probably be out for
distribution a week before Junior
week-end. Velma Farnham, editor of
the Oregana and her assistants have
worked strenuously on the book in or
der to get it out early. Miss Farnham
has been to Oregon City supervising
the printing of the year book.
The advertising section of the book
has been sold due to the splendid work
of Lot Beatie.
"WITHIN THE LAW” AT REX
Two men are desperately in love with
Norma Talmadge as Mary Turner, the
heroine, in her gripping First National
picturization of “Within the Law,”
showing at the Rex Theatre this week
starting tomorrow for two days only.
One is a forger and the other a rich
man’s son. The forger proves his love
for Mary when he confesses a murder
of which she had been accused. Mary
marries the wealthy young man as a
means of wrecking vengeance against
his father for a wrong the latter had
done her. But she loves her “victi
mized” husband, and this is what adds
zest and complication to the plot.
“A BLIND BAKGAIN” AT CASTLE
Lon Chaney is a mervelous screen ac
tor. If he had never given evidence
of that fact before his acting of the
dual role in Goldwyn’s fantastic, pseu
do-scientific melodrama, “A Blind Bar
gain.” disclosed last night for the first
time in Eugene at the Castle theatre,
undoubttagly would prove the state
ment conclusively. It requires, how
ever, such a photoplay as Goldwyn had
made in “A Blind Bargain,” produced
as artistically and directed as intelli
gently, to give Mr. Chaney an oppor
tunity to score so decisively.
Tomorrow starts another feast, Cecil
B. DeMille’s greatest, “Adams Bib,”
in ten gorgeous acts.
BEX FEATUKE FILMED IN TAHITI
There is nothing new in sending a
motion picture company to foreign
lands to film a production. It’s being
done now every day. “The Christian”
was partly filmed in England; so was
“Sherlock Holmes.” “Ben Hur” is to
be photographed in Palestine and Italy.
But Goldwyn established a precedent
when it sent the entire east of “Lost
and Found,” the photoplay, which was
shown at the Bex theatre yesterday, to
the island of Tahiti in the South Seas.
This was the first time in the history
of the island that an entire company
had been sent there to make a feature
