From Windows 14 and 15
of Ad Building
Extra Copies Will be on Hand
for Those not Having
Placed Orders
Evidence that another year in the life
of the University and its students
has rolled by, and is now history, is pre
sented by the announcement of Yelma
Farnham, editor of the 1923 Oregana,
that that book will be ready for student
distribution Thursday morning at 10
o’clock. The polls qf distribution will
be windows 14 and 15 on the second
floor of the Administration building.
“We have tried faithfully,” was the
message Miss Farnham gave to the stu
dent bod^ on behalf of the staff, “to
typify Oregon life of the past year, and
to crystallize in a permanent, valuable,
historical form, events which will be
nearest and dearest to the hearts of the
present generation of students when
they remember those days at Oregon.”
The entire staff has worked hard and
without any let-up whatsoever on the
book, but the pleasure of the work has
made us forget the hard grind. I am
grateful to the students of the Univer
sity for giving me the privilege of edi
ting such a book as this, and I now
turn my work back to them, hoping that
it will be in every way satisfactory.”
Cost is Less
The cost of this year’s Oregana ac
cording to Miss Farnham will be $4.50.
This is 25 cents lower than last year’s
edition of the book, and the difference
is attributed to the fact that this year’s
volume “got the breaks” in better con
tracts and labor conditions. According
to Miss Farnham the Oregana has been
self-supporting for the past three years
and each year has been slightly less
expensive than the previous year.
A few extra copies of the Oregana
will be held for sale at the distribu
tion offices for those who were unable
to turn in regular orders ill advance.
As a celebration of the completion of
their work, the staff of the book, to
gether with two past editors, the editor
elect, and invited guests of the campus,
gave a dinner, dance at the Anchorage,
a week before the release of the vol
ume to the general campus. A feature
of the party which has come to be an
annual affair, was a large cake baked
in the form of a large book, the top
being composed of a replica of the
cover of the present edition of the year
Those on University Payroll to Enter
Independent Baseball League
The U. of O. employees intend to
a baseball team in an independent
league to be formed in Eugene. There
are five other teams in the league be
sides the University team and although
it was the desire of the University
squad to gain admission to the twilight
league of Eugene, this league already
had its full quota of teams and it was
found necessary to form another. At the
end of the season, the winners in each
league will play the winners of the
other for the championship title.
Anyone conected with the University
with the exception of paid athletes, is
extended an invitation to try out for
the team. First practice will be held
tonight at 5 o’clock.
Students Not Only Ones
to Err in Checks
Shades of a no-fund check!—or the
tale of an offender, who wasn’t a stu
A University of Oregon professor,
who is also on the lists as a student for
the payment of registration fees, walk
ed into the registrar’s office not long
ago and asked for a “Captial National
bank check.” On being told that there
was no such bank in Eugene, he said,
“Well, name over all the banks and
perhaps I can remember the name of the
one I have my money in.”
The sequel to this little tale is not
yet forthcoming. For the sake of the
honor of the University, it is to be
hoped he wrote a check on the right
bank. Otherwise—well, murder will
And, sad to relate, he is not the only
absent minded professor on the cam
pus, for not long ago a check, was re
ceived at the registrar’s office on
which the figures 98c were written; but
underneath, the professor had written
“Ninety-eight - dollars.”
It would therefore seem that educa
tional folders for the faculty would
not be out of place.
“The Great Broxopp” to be
Given May 25, 26 and 27
“The Great Broxopp,” with Kate Pin
neo, Vera Fudge, Elizabeth Robinson,
and David Swanson in the leading roles,
and a selected group supporting them,
will be produced by the University Com
pany three nights, beginning the 25th of
this month.
An English comedy, subtle, amusing,
full of clever situations, it will probably
be one of the funniest plays attempted
by the players. It is unusual also in the
fact that there are four leads of equal
importance. The whole thing is well
rounded technically, c.nd not at all lack
ing in character delineation.
Broxopp, the real hero of the play, is
a very sincere, frank old fellow who has
a gift for thinking of euphonious sell
ing slogans, and is as proud of his brain
children as if they were new versions of
“Paradise Lost.’-’ He gets on well as
long as his adoring wife continues to
think his slogans as wonderful as she
thinks him. But when his son has fin
ally grown, gone to Eton and Oxford,
fallen in love, and has become sensitive
about “ Broxopp’s Beans for Babies” ad
which contains his baby picture, the gen
ial old Broxopp is disturbed.
How he goes about undoing the unwel
come publicity which his son has re
ceived at his hands, and how he dis
covers happiness in the end is a long
story on which the plot hinges.
There is one character in the play who
is a real treat and that is Iris, the son’s
fiancee. She is an honest girl, and that
is quite a phenomenon. Incidentally she
is a joy to old Broxopp’s heart. She has
a sense of humor that is delicious and
it saves many situations.
The whole play attains the high stan
dards set by Guild hall for itself in the.
past year and speaks well for the Com
pany which is attempting it.
Dean William G. Hale will address
the senior class of Lincoln high school
in Portland June 11. His talk will be
on the University and what is offered
in the different departments. The mem

Doom of Fraternities Sensed by
Editor of Denunciatory Sheet
T !■■■■!
“The fellow who can talk easily,
dress well and make good with the
girls is not infrequently considered
more desirable than one who has intel
lectual ambitions and sterling moral
qualities, but who is less characterized
by social finesse.”
“It seems that fraternities do have
ideals, but in order to be a good
fellow and a popular member one must
necessarily violate them one and all.”
Thus reads an eight by five-inch yel
low pamphlet that is being left on the
threshold of the men’s letter organiza
tions. The booklet informs the mem
bers of the passing of fraternities and
accuses the Greek letter organizations,
in denunciatory language, of impro
rieties, of immoralities, and failure to
fulfill the high ideals of university life.
^George P. Gundelfinger, Ph. D.,
author of “Ten Years at Yale,” entitles
his bulletin ’’The Passing of Brother
Greek.” He uses as material “The Fra
ternity and Undergraduates?” by T. A.
Clark, dean of men at fche University of
Illinois and his own experiences as proc
tor of a fraternity dormitory. Mr.
Clark published his book to defend thd
fraternities but Mr. Gundelfinger de
clares the work is inconsistent and
straighway attempts to point out the
illogical defence.
Fraternities are doomed, he predicts.
“It is clear that the fraternity must
pass out of the colleges,” writes Mr.
Gundelfinger. ,
This prophecy is based on the charges
that the college has failed to raise the
social and ethical standards of the or
ganizations. Scholastic records among
the fraternities are low. The influ
ence of the npperclassmen upon the sus
ceptible freshman is bad.
Socially fraternity men are superior

Open house at all living organiza
Once again Junior Week-end is here.
Tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 o’clock
a tennis meet between the Oregon frosh
and Salem high school opens the busiest
week-end of the year for Oregon stu
dents. Hundreds of “preppers” from
all parts of the northwest will begin
coming in tomorrow noon and by Fri
day noon every living organization on
the campus will be full to the door
ways with wide awake youngsters
“anxious to see Oregon.”
Reports at last night’s meeting of
the directorate indicate that plans are
well in hand. Heavy demands on Jun
iors’ time will be made all week-end
and Doug Farrell, chairman of the com
mittee, urges that members of the class
of ’24 remember this in making their
plans for the next few days.
Junior Meeting Tonight
Tonight at 5 o’clock a Junior class
meeting has been called by Jimmie
Meek, president of the class, for the
purpose of outlining the work which
the juniors must do to make the week
end a success. “It is absolutely im
perative that every Junior be there in
order that this year’s Junior Week-end
be absolutely a number one,” he said
last night. Committees for the coming
class elections will be appointed tonight
and a short discussion of a possible
Junior dance is also scheduled on the
class meeting program.
Knut Digerness, Frank Dorman,
Jean Du Paul, Vincent Engeldinger,
Alfred Erickson, Arthur Everett, Cecil
Fargher, Henry Foster, Donald Fraser,
and Armand Fuchs have been drafted
for work on the blachere at 3:15 this
afternoon. Practically every member
of the junior class will be needed either
at the armory or on the bleachers is
the edict the class officials announced
last night.
New Event Scheduled
The newest Junior Week-end event,
the water carnival, has included on its
program a 50-yard dash between the
frosh and the varsity; class canoe races
(men and women); spring board and
high diving; tub race; girls 50 yeard
race; back stroke race; tilting contest;
novelty canoe race; and relay race.
Lyle Palmer is chairman on this fea
ture, which is scheduled for 10:30 Sat
urday morning. It promises to be one
of the most interesting parts of the
entire program as some of the best
swimmers in the state are slated to
take part.
Tickets are now on sale for the
canoe fete and the prom. Every “prep
per” is expected to register at the Ad
building soon after his arrival. At that
time each will be given a ticket admit
ting him to all events.
This will do away with paying for
guests. However students are to be
charged one dollar for prom tickets
and 25c for bleacher seats at the fete.
Townspeople and faculty must pay for
bleacher tickets. “Gallery gods” at
the prom will be required to pay 25c
for their seats. Tickets are on sale for

Washington State Nine Romps
Off With Second Game by
Scoring 10 Runs to 4
Heavy Swatting of Northerners
Proves Nemesis of Oregon
in Later Innings
Timely hitting, fast fielding, and Ore
gon errors enabled the hard hitting
Cougars to claw down the varsiy col
ors for the second time, taking yester
day’s ball game by a 10 to 4 score and
making H two straight for the series.
Every man on the Washington team ex
cept Beneke and Sandberg got at least
one hit and all except Beneke succeeded
in crossing the plate at least once. Sors
by and Svarverud were the big guns in
the Oregon offensive, each connecting
twice in four trips to the platter. One
of Sorsby’s blows sailed over the cen
ter fielder's head and allowed the little
fellow to make the trip around the
bags, unmolested.
For the first two innings, Shields had
the Northerners eating out of his hand,
and when, in the last half of the sec
ond, the locals cracked out three saf
eties for two runs, it looked like an
Oregon day. Their lead was short lived,
however, for in the very next canto the
Staters opened fire and Oregon blew
up, and when they came back to earth,
three Cougars had romped safely across
the rubber.
In their half of tfoe inning, the var
sity stickors responded nobly to the
plea of the bleaclierites and chased in
another score, evoning the count. The
score was made as a result of Sorsby’s
single, Collin’s sacrifice, and an error
on the part of the Cougar third saclcer.
Tlio visitors came back in the first
of the fourth and annexed two more
runs and from then on they were never
headed. The big sticks of Foster, Rob
erts, Hanley and Bray were responsible
for the counters.
Homer Is Spoiled
Washington added two more in the
sixth when Johnny Zaepfel pushed one
of Tiny’s fast ones out half way to the
school of education building for three
bags. The clout wouldvhave easily gone
for a homer had it not hit one of the
cars parked out in the outer garden.
A sharp single by Roberts scored Zaep
fel and a single by Cook, after Bray
had walked, seored Roberts.
Applequist’s men were not content
with this lead, however, and in the
seventh they chased another run across.
In the ninth, they took advantage of
the varsity errors and another pair of
runs scampered home. Oregon’s fourth
and last tally came in the eighth when
Bill Sorsby collected his four-ply swat.
Washington State left this morning
for Corvallis where they will play a
two-game series with the Aggies. The

Russian College Life Stormy
Declares American Observer
What would you think of a University
which did not educate its students along
the lines of the chief problems of the
country to which it was native? What
is the use of an education which does not
really educate along vital lines, arid which
is restricted and hampered at every
step? Such is the sorry tale told of the
Russian colleges by George M. Day, sec
retary of the Pacific Coast division of
the Student Christian Foreign Friend
ship movement of the Y. M. C. A, who is
visiting on the campus until Thursday
morning. Mr. Day was in Russia from
1909 until 1917, and during this time he
attended the Unievrsity of Fetrograd as
an “auditor” student.
The career of the Russian University
life under the czarist regime, under the
more moderate Kerensky rule, and under
the earlier and later stages of the soviet
government has been stormy, to say the
least. Fought by the church, suppressed
by the government police, under despot
ism, the student class in Russia was again
in serious danger under tlie rule of the
Bolsheviks, according to Mr. Day. Only
under the government of Kerensky, whom
they backed to the limit, did the stu
dents fare at all well, or cut any great
figure in national politics.
An incident illustrating the life of
students under the rule of the Bomanoff
bureaucratic rule was told by Mr. Day:
“I was attending the University of
Petrograd,” he said, “at the time of tho
death of Count Tolstoi. Now according
to the rule of the police not more than a
dozen or fifteen students were allowed
to gather together outside of the col
lege bounds, because such gatherings
might lead to the inception of revolution
ary ideas.
“The students had planned to com
memorate the death of Count Tolstoi
with a great student gathering, think
ing that surely the government would
allow them to honor the memory of so
great a world figure. I remember that
