Winner of Rhodes Scholarship
To Be Picked By State
The state examination for determin
ing who shall receive th Rhodes schol
arship to Oxford from Oregon for the
year 1923, will be held December 8.
Colleges and universities will select
their representatives between October
1 and October 7. This means that the
candidates from the University will be
chosen during the first week of the fall
trm and all students wishing to try out
for the scholarship should make their
intentions known this spring, accord
ing to information received from Dean
Candidates for the scholarship are
given two examinations. They are first
examined by the committee for that
purpose from their respective schools,
an then those chosen from the various
colleges of the state are examined to
determine the winner. The committee
on foreign scholarships of the Univer
sity consists of Dean Colin Dyment,
chairman, Prof. E. 8. Bates, and Prof.
Subjects Not Restricted
A Rhodes scholarship is tenable for
three years and the annual stipend is
350 pounds or about $1,750. No res
treitions are placed on the scholar’s
choice of subjects. A candidate to be
eligible must be a male citizen of the
United States, must be between the
ages of 19 and 25, and must have com
pleted at least his sophomore year in
college. A student may apply in the
state in which he resides or in a state
in which he has received at least two
years of his college education.
The qualities which are considered in
making the selection of a Rhodes schol
ar are: qualities of manhood, force of
character and leadership; literary and
scholastic ability and attainments; and
physical vigor, as shown by interest in
outdoor sports or in other ways.
The University of Oregon has had
more Rhodes scholars than any other
institution in Oregon, according to
Dean John Straub. Two years ago Kir
by Miller of the University won the
scholarship. He is not at Oxford. Last
year a man from Reed College, in Port
land, was the successful candidate.
Pacific Coast Represented
Scholars will be elected from 32
states this year. All Pacific Coast
Btates are on the list, while the largest
states in the union, such as New York
and Pennsylvania, are not represented.

Vonder Ahe, Campbell, and Haney Will
Play for Championship in Closing
Contest Wednesday Night
Bret Harte might return to the cam
pus Wednesday night for local color
for one of his gambling stories. Three
flashy miners from tho goology depart
ment, the glints in their eyes vying
with the sparkle of tho horseshoe tie
pins, loud snorts subduing their stri
dent tones, will shuffle the cards to
decide the pinochle champion of the
The three best card sharks left in
the semi-finals of the tournament are
Karl Vonder Aho, who has won six
games and lost three; and Ian Camp
bell and Ed Ilaney, who htive five wins
to their credit and four losses. Vonder
Ahe, according to close observers, has
been the most consistent player, but
the odds in his favor have dropped.
The anouncement of his engagement
may possibly make him nervous and
.spoil his steady hand, in the theory of
the onlookers. Haney and Campbell
plan to play hard to prevent the cham
pionship from being taken away from
Condon Club members, and to keep the
prize deck of cards on home territory.
Admission of ten cents will bo
charged to witness the keenest card
contest on the campus. Dates are not
prohibited, say the promoters of the
affair. However girls must present af

Fiery Local Lawyers
Expose Fearful Fraud
One thousand dollars is an unusual
price to ask for a fountain pen and
especially so when it is a well-known
make, retailing at $2.50, but Odgen
Johnson, law school student, finds that
after accepting the pen in payment for
some typewriting ho is sued for it’s
value by his former employer, “Shorty”
Meyers, also a law student. The dis
pute will be settled in the court of
Justin Miller in the circuit court room
this evening. And at the same time
some of the future powejs in the legal
world will get some practice in the
ways of a court.
Representing Mr. Meyers is Forest
Littlefield, and representing Mr. John
son is Abe Rosenberg, both of whom
are delving into the legal details of

is a family heirloom and that he did
not agree to give it to Mr. Johnson

NINE HIGH SCHOOLS WILL
CONTEST AT TRACK MEET
100 Preppers To Compete with Frosh
Runners Junior Week-end; Event
Has Three Purposes
The freshman track squad will have
keen competition in the meet to be
held on Hayward field Saturday, May
19, when nine high schools will com
pete with it as a part of the Junior
Week-end program. The high schools
that will send teams to the University
for the meet are Washington, Lincoln,
Franklin, Henson Polytechnic, Com
merce, Jefferson, Roosevelt, of Port
land; Columbia University, also of
Portland, and either Mount Angel or
Chemawa will compete. Nothing has
been definitely decided as to which
of the latter teams will enter the meet.
Each team will be made up of 12
men. It is probable that the high
schools will run off a preliminary meet
on Friday afternoon after the O. A. C.
and Varsity contest.
The purpose of holding such a meet
is three-fold, namely: as a drawing card
to attract future University students
to the campus; to afford the freshman
track team competition; and to fpster
athletics and physical education among
the high schools. Approximately one
hundred high school athletes will par
ticipate in the meet. Admission will be
by student tickets and guest tickets.
A crow is working on the north end
of Hayward field, getting it into shape
for the meet.

PATTERSON GOES !
TO ORATORY MEET
To Represent The University
For the Second Time
Paul Patterson for the second time
during the school year will represent the
University of Oregon at an oratorical
contest, when he goes to Moscow, Idaho,
on May 24 to compete with speakers from
the Universities of Washington and
i Idaho in the Northwest oratorical meet.
■ Not only did he win the right to go to
[this contest as a result of the tryouts
held in Villard hall last night, but he won
the Mrs. Wilson Jewett prize, an award
of $40 offered through the public speak
ing department to the student winning
in the tryouts. Other students partici
pating in these tryouts were Ernest Hen
rikson, Wayne Meek and Kelsey Guil
foil. Faculty members who acted as
judges were Dean W. G. Hale of the law
school, Dr. J. H. Gilbert of the econo
mics department, Professor Roland M.
Miller, also of the economics depart
ment, and Professor Melvin T. Solve of
the English department.
Is Forensic Manager
Patterson is a senior in the school of
business administration and is from Seat
tle, Washington. He holds an enviable
record in forensic activities, having been
a member of the Varsity debating squad
for four years, forensic manager dur
ing this year and the Oregon orator at
the Old Line oratorical contest held at
Albany the earlier part of this year.
The Northwest contest is an annual
event carried on by the University of
Oregon, the University of Washington
and the University of Idaho. The prize
offered by the league conducting the
affair amounts to $100. Last year the
contest was held at the University of
Washington, this year it is scheduled to
be held at the University of Idaho, and
at the University of Oregon next year.
The Idaho representative won the event
last year, at which Ralph Bailey, also a
member of the Oregon debating squad,
went as the University orator.
Interest In Contest Keen
The tryout held last night is the last
opportunity for this yeaT that University
students in general will have to compete
in oratOi’'c-l work, as the Failing-Beek
man orations scheduled for commence
ment week, are open only to members
of the graduating class.
Students at the University have dis
played unusually keen interest in oratory
this year according to Professor C. D.
Thorpe of the public speaking depart
ment, and the prospects for next year
are good. Last year he said students
had to be urged to turn out for the try
outs, but even then they did not al
ways respond and as a result no one
tried out for the Peace orations. This
year every tryout has had a good turn
out, and many dark hourses as well as
experienced speakers have come out to ]
