    Oregon Daily Emerald
U. S. C. Represenative Takes
Y First Honors; Robert Littler,
Stanford, Gets Second Prize
Criminal Syndicalism Laws Is
General Subject; Men Given
One Hour to Prepare Talks
Ned Lewis, representing the Univer
sity of Southern California, won first
prize of $50 in the extempore speaking
contest held last night in Villard hall
under the auspices of the Pacific Coast
Forensic League. Second prize of $25
■was taken by Robert Littler, Stanford,
and honorable mention was given to
Fred Weller of Washington State Col
lege. Robert Goudy, Oregon Agricul
tural College, made fourth, while Ore
gon’s man, Martin Moore, and R. M.
Petty, from University of California,
A tied for fifth place.
The subjects for the speeches were
different phases of the criminal syndi
calism laws. Though the speakers were
notified of the general subject six
weeks ago, they were not informed
of their particular "aspect of it until
one hour before the contest began. At
that time they drew for their topic,
which carried with it the order of ap
pearance on the platform.
Winner Gives Argument
Lewis, winner of the first prize,
spoke on ‘‘Social Progress and the
Criminal Syndicalism Laws.” He main
tained that the laws, as they now exist,
are not compatible with social prog
ress, declaring that any government not
strong enough to stand criticism was
no strong enough to stand at all.
“Suppression is the mother of revo
lution. We must have the right of ex
pression, or social progress will not be
forward. And we cannot legislate this
thing out of existence, for such will
not be legislated out of existence.”
Robert Littler, who carried off the
\ second prize, speaking on “The Fu
ture of Criminal Syndicalism Laws,”
based his argument also on a disap
proval of the laws of syndicalism,
pointing out that, though the laws had
been in effect for several years, the
results obained had been more negative
than otherwise. He cited as examples
of a rational operation of such laws
the cases of France and England.
Subjects Are Listed
Fred Weller discussed “Criminal
Syndicalism Laws in Time of Peace,”
and declared that the laws were not
necessary, for anything which it was
essential for such laws to cover was
already taken care of by our previously
% existing laws governing sabotage, de
struction of property, crime and con
Other speakers and their subjects
were: Walter S. Greathouse, University
of Idaho, “The Origin and Development
of Criminal Syndicalism Laws”; Mar
tin S. Moore, University of Oregon,
“Criminal Syndicalism and the Right of
Free Speech and Free Expression”;
R. M. Petty, University of California,
“Criminal Syndicalism Laws as a War
Time Expedient”; Robert Goudy, O. A.
C. “The I. W. W. Movement and Crim
inal Syndicalism Laws”; R. F. Ayres,
Whitman college, “The Labor Miove
J ment and Criminal Syndicalism Laws.”
* Judges for the contest were forensic
coaches of the different schools, each
of whom rated all the contestants ex
cept the one from his own institution.
Dean William G. Hale of the law school,
presided as chairman. He paid high
tribute to the idea of such a gathering
and declared such an event was some
thing which would “develop a power!
which everyone on some occasion j
needs, the power to convince others
of what we believe.”
Perstein Presides
The first official meeting of the
conference was called to order yester
day morning in the lounge room of the
Woman’s building. The president
elected last spring, Robert Hilcher of
the University of Washington, resign
ed, so the vice president, Arnold Per
stein of the University of California,
presided. Dean Colin V. Dyment of
the college of literature, science and
the arts, addressed the conference.
Routine business, consisting of appoint
ment of committees, reading of peti
tions from colleges wishing to become
members of the conference, and a gen
eral outline of the work to be accom

This morning there wil^ be another
session, also in the Woman’s building,
at which it is planned to adopt the new

Frosh Gets Lucky
Number and Wins
Shoe Shining Kii
Number 6-0-2 is the number. No,
it doesn’t belong to a wicked con
vict whose picture hangs in the
rogues’ gallery, nor is it an auto
mobilj; license, nor telephone
number, nor football signal, nor
anything like that. It is the lucky
number which won for Philip
Shulte, a freshman in the school
of business administration, the big,
handsome, prize-winning, shoe
shining kit.
Philip, like other dutiful fresh
men, as well as members of every
class in the University, had his ox
fords shined Thursday, the cele
brated junior shine day. Uncon
scious of everything but his shin
ing pedimental coverings, he left
the parlors located in front of the
library, clasping a small white slip
on which “602” was printed. This
was about noon.
Late Thursday evening numbers
were drawn. Out of the large
wooden box appeared “602.” The
possessor of the number was given
until 6 o ’clock last night to present
the matching number.

The first week of play in the second
round of' the doughnut basketball
tournament was ended yesterday after
noon by the clean-cut defeat that the
Fiji quintet handed the strong Beta
Theta Pi squad by the score of 25-18.
This game proves that the Fiji team
will be one of the strong contenders for
the cup. Their teamwork is fast and
well trained and their shooting is un
usually accurate, which makes them
formidable! opponents for the lother
teams in league A.
In the game yesterday, Flynn, the
lanky Fiji center, seemed to find his
shooting eye and looped the basket for
many long and hard shots, scoring 12
points in all. Brown, the mainstay of
the winners’team, scored six points. For
the losers, Westergren, the fighting for
ward, played a wonderful doughnut
game and scored eight points for the
Beta team. Gunther followed second
with six field goals.
Getting the tip-off almost every time,
the Fiji team worked the ball down the
floor wih short snappy passes and suc
ceeded in ringing up a total of 16
against 7 for the losers in the first half
of the game. Coming back in the last
half, the Beta team played a finer game
and made the game seem doubtful <or
the winners when they had the score
16 to 15. Howeyer, their burst of fight
was overcome and the Fijis came out on
the long end of the score.
Delta Tau Delta forfeited their game

Sophomore Class Holds Out Details of
Flans for Big Dance Tonight
and Creates Curiosity
Because of the strictest secrecy main
tained by the sophomore class up to the
very day of the big informal, people are
more than anxious to attend the dance
at the Armory tonight and “see foi
themselves.” Color motifs of burnt
orange, oriental green and gray give
promise of a brilliant and exotic scene,
The gaudy and splendid plumage o!
the East will be carried out in the cos
tumes of Gladys Noren and Katherine
Jane Seel in the feature dance which
they are to present. The orchestra too
is to be arrayed in oriental garb. Be
freshments are promised by the commit
tee in charge, but whether the Eastern
concoction planned will be too oriental
to eat remains as yet a secret.
This dance is sponsored by the sopho
more class and is one of the large col
lege dances of the year. No admittance
fee will be charged, so a crowd wil]
probably fill the hall. The women wil
appear in formal dresses, while the mei
dress informally.

I Purpose Is to Promote Interest in Local

“We are not organizing for the

pus. Members of his committee are
sounding individual opinion of student
members before any actual attempt at
organization will take place.

ready over ‘organized’,” he said. “If
student response warrants it, we will
go ahead more definitely.”

Purpose of Interclass Contesl
Is to Get Line on Possible
Varsity and Frosh Squads
i -
Cross Country Race Scheduled
I for Afternoon; Runners to
Go Course of 2.4 Miles
Looming as one of the most interest
ing events on the program for the
day is the inter-class track meet to be
held on Hayward field, commencing at
10 o’clock. The purpose of the meet
is to get a line on possible varsity
and freshman material, from which
will be chosen the Oregon teams of
this year. The seniors and juniors will
combine and enter a strong aggregation
to contest the right for the champion
ship in inter-class track.
The sophomores will have some
dangerous contenders coming up from
the freshman team of last year. The
freshman “Babes” will turn out in
full force, and promise to give their
rivals a run for their money, with a
number of high school Btars entered.
According to Bill Hayward, these meets
are of vital importance in getting a
line on the possible material for the
development of a good track squad. It
is essential that every candidate who
has been out for practice and who
.hopes to make the squad should be
out there tomorrow; for it is out of
competition that track stars are made.
Men Asked to Sign Up.
Some of the classes have not as yet
entered men in all of the events. Those
intending to compete should get in touch
with Hayward as soon as possible, and
if this is impossible, Bill says to turn
out*on the field in a suit and run any
way. There will be some hotly contest
ed events and the different classes
should have enough “pep” to turn out
and help their class win.
In the afternoon the doughnut cross
country race will be run off, before the
Frosh game with the TT. of W. Frosh.
The first five or six men finishing in
this event, who are eligible for varsity
competition, will represent Oregon in
the annual race with O. A. C. a week
from today. A total of 55 entrants
have signed up for this event to re
present their various houses, so some
likely competition is assured all.

The events and entrants for .the
interclass track meet in the morning

ants at such an early time in their
training. Each house should have a

! bers. The runners entered from their

Ted Baker
All Star Cast in Clever Comedy;
Frosh Dates in Order
Tickets for “Dover Road,’ the Mask
and Buskin piny, will be on sale be
ginning this noon at the Heilig theater,
it has been announced by Ted Baker
who is managing the production. Tho
tickets will be 50 and 75 cents for the
entire house.
The group has been working hard
on the play under the direction of
Fergus Reddie for some time, and it
has been predicted that the comedy
will be an immense success by those
who have seen the rehearsals.
Betty Robinson, Ted Baker, Dave
Swanson, Kate Pinneo, Darrell Lar
son and Virgil Mulkoy comprise the
cast, and have all starred in company
plays before.
“Dover Road” is a t^uly amusing
story with a purely comedy plot deal
ing with the familiar situations of
couples falling in love, and with the
unusual element introduced of the elder
man whose hobby it is to show these
erring couples their follies, by showing
them to each other at inauspicious
moments. Tho play is a succession of
clever lines.
Dean Esterly has agreed that in the
case of the Mask and Buskin play
freshmen women may have dates and
be permitted to attend, although it is
in the middle of tho week and ordin
arily not the thing to do.
Wind Instruments Specially Needed,
According to Director Walstrom;
No Experience Required
There are still a great many vacan
cies to be filled in the second orchestra,
and mainly for the following instru
ments: cello, saxophone, trombone,
clarinet and cornet.
A large number of students have
turned out for this orchestra, but to
make it a success, there will have to be
more competition, says Theodore Wal
strom, director, who urges anyone that
can play any kind of an instrument,
whether they are experienced or inex
perienced, to be present at the regular
meeting next Tuesday at 4:45 in Vil
lard hall. This rehearsal will be very
important, for at that time new work
is to be taken up.
Mr. Walstrom considers work in the
second orchestra the finest preparation
one can possibly get for the first or
chestra, or for any kind of orchestral
It is not too late to become a mem
ber, and .anyone that isl interested
should get in touch with Theodore Wal
strom as soon as possible, either at the
school of music or by calling 922Y.
Grand Old Man Able to Walk; Hopes to
be in Eugene for Homecoming
Dean Straub is well on the road to
recovery. President and Mrs. Camp
bell visited him while in Portland for
the Oregon-Stanford game and were
surprised to sec Oregon’^ “Grand old
man” walking the corridors for short
intervals. He is grateful for the many
letters and messages received during
the first part of his illness, but ex
pressed the wish that they continue.
He is also ready to receive visitors
and students spending this week-end in
Portland are invited to see him at the
Portland Surgical hospital. It is the
ardent wish of the Dean, as well as
the hope of all his friends, that he
will be here for Homecoming.
Today Marks Close of Season
for Local Eleven; Hard
Fought Contest Expected
Washington Babes on First
Trip Here; Likely Material
Seen for 1924 Varsity
The freshman eleven winds up the
season today with the first year team
from the University of Washington.
In the past two years the local young
sers have succumbed to the Northern
ers, but this year the issue is at a
standoff. This is also the first appear
ance of the Washington babes on the
Oregon gridiron and a chance will be
given the fans to see what kind of
material Bagshaw will have for his
varsity in 1924.
Everything points to a close game
with neither squad having much edge.
The Seattle squad is not as strong as
in the last two years, and on their
home field the local freshmen have a
chance to break the winning of the
W ashingtonians.
With the exception of Jones, fullback,
the yearling squad is ready to go the
limit when the whistle sets the teams
in motion. If Jones does not go in,
Williams has three men from which to
select his plunger. Socolofsky may be
drawn in from halfback, or Williams
can use either Leavitt or Vitus. The
latter looked good in scrimmage Thurs
day and may get the assignment.
Few Berths Certain
Agee is sure to start at right half.
Stonebreaker, Post and Kiminki are
ready to relieve the regulars if neces
sary. In Harrison and Mimnaugh the
freshmen have two able field gen
erals. It is likely that Harrison will
open the tilt against the invaders. Cash
is also a /ikely candidate for the
barker’s job and may have a chance to
show at some stage of the contest.
The only change that Williams may
make in the line is at right guard.
Dills, end, has been pulled in and
Adolph is taking care of the flank.
Brooks is officiating at the other ex
tremity and may go the entire route.
Collins, Officer and Flannigan will be
held in reserve. Flannigan injured his
nose Thursday and this may keep him
on the sidelines. Kerns and Kjelland
will take care of the tackles, with
Dills and Carter next to center. Carl
Johnson has had things his own way
at the snapperback position, and will
no doubt wind up the season today.
From L. Johnston, Stearns, Bellshaw,
Farley, Dashney, McClung and Bar'our,
Williams can select a strong substitute
for line service.
Visitors Outweigh Frosh.
The men from the north may out
weigh the freshmen slightly and the
locals will have to make it up in speed
and fight. The invaders have played
four tough games, winning and losing
two. The locals have won two and lost
one of their games, winning from Co
lumbia and Linfield and losing a close
battle to the Aggie rooks 3-0.
The fans may be treated to a little
percentage football when Harrison and
Shidler get their kicking toes into ac
tion. The Washington back is the
king pin of the invader’s offensive also
and will keep the frosh busy watch
ing him. Harrison’s kicking has saved
the freshmen several times this year
and some of his boots have traveled
for a good average.
The game will start about 2:15 and
with the probable line-ups as follows:
Oregon— —Washington
Brooks .LE. Cutting
Kerns .LT. Mitchell
Carter .LG. Hopgood
C. Johnson .C. Botamy
Dills .BG. MoCrimmon
Kjelland .BT. Thompson
Adolph .BE. Douglas
Jones .F. Prevost
Socolofsky .LH. Patten
Agee . BH. Shidler
Harrison .Q.Delaney
Harold Benjamin, principal of the
University high school, left Thursday
night for Condon, Oregon, where he will
speak next Saturday at the Gilliam
county teachers’ institute. The sub
ject of his talk will be “Educational
Tests and Measurements.”
Correction Is Made
The booth to be placed on the campus
for the Bed Cross drive will be open
on Wednesday of next week instead of
Monday, as was announced in an eailier
