Finance Committee Passes
Suggestion of Music
Group of the University
Session Will be Staged in
Portland Under Auspices
of National Organization
The University Men’s Glee club
will enter the contest of the Pacific
Association of Collegiate Glee clubs,
a part of the Inter-Collegiate Na
tional Musical association, which
will convene in Portland soon for
its second annual session.
It was not decided until yester
day that the University of Oregon
Glee club would enter the contest.
However, at the most recent meet
ing of the University music com
mittee it was recommended that the
club participate. Yesterday the
recommendation was passed favor
ably upon by the finance committee.
The association was formed when
a need for a better and closer co
ordination between the men’s glee
clubs of the colleges apd univer
sities of the Pacific coast became
apparent, and to encourage male
voice singing of the highest excel
lence by giving musical receptions
and concerts at which the glee clubs
may sing competitively.
Schools are Listed
The association is open to all
collegiate glee clubs on the coast
whose membership does not exceed
30 men, who are regularly regis
tered students in the college repre
sented. Up to the present time ten
colleges have affiliated with this
organization. They are: Washing
ton State college, University of
Montana, Willamette university,
University of Idaho, University of
Oregon, Oregon. Agricultural col
lege, Stanford university, Univer
sity of Washington, Whitman Col
lege and Montana State college.
At the coming contest each of
the ten glee clubs will sing three
selections. One is to be the prize
song, “The Morning Hymn” by
Henschel. This song is considered
one of the most beautiful songs
ever written for male voiees, and
is also very'difficult. Each club will
also sing a light song. It must
be of a high musical standard and
the association may reject the song
if it is judged below standard. No
songs of the strictly vaudeville
type will be accepted. A typical
college song of the college repre
sented is the third song to be sung.
There will be three judges for the
« contest, none of whom shall have
affiliation with any of the colleges
Oregon Alumni Interested
The Oregon alumni residing in
Portland are especially interested
in the contest and that Oregon be j
present. V. T. Motschenbacher, an ;
Oregon graduate of the class of ’13,
has been chosen head of the alumni
committee to promote the associa
tion in Portland. Each of the other
schools in the association have
many alumni and followers in Port
land, and they are expressing un

Today Last Day
to Flatten Purse
by Paying Fees
She turned away from the
cashier’s window.
“And is there nothing left?”
she asked in, a voice that broke
with apprehension.
“Nothing,” he answered, “You
have spent your last available
cash to pay your fees.”
She breathed a sigh of- relief.
At least that is off my mind
for another three months,” she
said as she turned away.
This is1, not tthe latest produc
tion from the class in short story,
but a drama! of real life such as
being staged daily within the
confines of Eugene. i
Just one more day left to pay
registration fees with exactly
half of the registered students
yet to pay, says Mr.; Lyons of
the business office.
Beginning on Monday a fine
of $3.00 will be charged- for all
late payment fees and no ex
cuses will be accepted.
Courtesy Code For Patrons
and Chaperones Made
At a meeting of the women’s
forum last night, a number of
decisions relating to campus policy
were reached. The main topic of
discussion concerned chaperones,
patrons and patronesses for Uni
versity social functions, both formal
and informal.
Some of the points particularly
stressed were: First, a verbal in
vitation to act as chaperone for a
party or dance is not sufficient.
This should be followed by a note
requesting the presence of the pat
ron or patroness, signifying that
he is to act in that capacity. Sec
ond, chaperones for the entire even
ing should be provided. Third,
transportation should be provided
for all patrons and patronesses and
they should be notified accordingly.
Fourth, programs should be made
out for the patrons and patronesses
when they so desire, and these pro
grams adhered to by the students.
Points of courtesy to patrons and
patronesses, which were discussed,
were the recognition of the receiv
ing line by students and the loca
tion of the patrons and patronesses
in a pleasant and comfortable part
of the room.
In discussing the entertainment
of women at Sunday dinner by the
men’s living organizations, it was
decided that, due to the fact that
guests often remain for the greater
part of the afternoon, making can
cellation of other arrangements of
the chaperone necessary, they should
remain for only onte hour after
dinner. The time limit set for mid
week dinner engagements is 7:30.
These resolutions are to be drawn
up in complete form by a com
mittee of which Georgia Benson,
president of the forum, has charge,
and copies will be left in the of
fice of the dean of women.

“The Dress Rehearsal” Given
Ovation by Campus Audience
By L. K. B.
“The Dress Rehearsal,” a four
act comedy, which began a three
night run at the Guild theater last
night, is a light bit of humor—a
fluffy dessert to tempt the palate
of the theatergoers. It has no aim
but to amuse, and in this aim it
The plot is nonsensical and an
analysis of it would probably re
veal little that is of permanent
value, yet the audience of profes
sors and students which viewed the
performance last night seemed
highly pleased—seemed to relax and
cat h the spirit of levity and
abandon—which marked the work
of the cast as a whole. Whether
the simplicity of the piece at
tempted, or the spirit in which the
actors took the thing, it is evident
that the standard of the acting
was high.
The theme of the play—it has
no theme. As the name implies, it
is a comedy of the stage! It is a
fairy story of amusing and perhaps
overdrawn stage types. The re
hearsal of a play and its first night
showing provide many laughable
situations. In addition to this
unusual feature, the audience is
taken back-stage and shown how
a play is produced.
Katherine Pinneo, advertised as
the star of the play, has intro
duced a finer element into her
characterization. She is funny, but

Medford Quintet Tonight,
and Lincoln on Saturday,
to Test Infants’ Mettle
Accuracy, Speed, and Fight
in Plenty Give Freshmen
Good Chance for Victory
The freshman basketball team will
play its third game of the season
with Medford high school in the
men’s gymnasium at 7:15 tonight.
Saturday afternoon at 2:30 they
will meet the Lincoln high school team
bf Portland in the men's gymnasium.
Little is known of the strength of
the Medford aggregation,' but they
have always been strong contenders
for honors in their part of the state.
The Medford high school team is be
ing coached this year by “Prink”
■ Callison, three-year football letterman
' and one of the most formidable cen
ters on the coast during his three
years work on the football squad.
He has the position as athletic di
rector at Medford high school that
Eddie Dumo held before he went
east to finish his school work.
Nine First-string Men
Coach Dave Evan’s crew is still
drilling every night on the funda
mentals of the game in passing, drib
bling, and pivoting. From among
fiften men he has on the squad at
present he has not been able to pick
the best scoring combination. How
ever, there are at least nine men
'whom Evans can use interchangeably
1 and from whom he hopes to develop
a fast, short-passing machine.
Their lop-sided victories over the
Portland high school teams last week
gave the freshmen a good send-off
for the season. They have improved
in team work since these two games
and all are in fine condition with the
exception ■ of Kiminki, guard, who in
jured his eye in practice a couple of
days ago and who will not be able
to enter the game.
Forward Combination Fast
Starting the game tonight at for
ward will be Westerman and Wester
gren. Combining speed, accuracy,
and abundance of fight, they will
be the forward combination that will
get the biggest share of the work.
Chiles will be on the bench as spare
Okerberg will handle the pivot po
sition with Flynn to relieve him.
Okerberg has been playing a wonder
ful game at center, and Flynn is a
dead shot on the basket. It is the
hard position on the team that Coach
Evans has to fill, and where the op
position makes their biggest showing.
Hughes and Reinhart will go in as
guards, with Schmeer and Schroeder
to back them up. All are big men
and show promise.
Lineup of Teams
The Medford team will arrive in
Eugene this afternoon, according to
the letter received by Graduate Man
ager Jack Benefiel from Prink Cal
lison. The eight members of the
squad are: Mervyn Chastain, Gilbert
Knips, Albert Allen, Clarence Wil
liams, Harold Reichstein, Glen Fa
brick. Ernest Hurt, and Russell Hib
The Lincoln high school lineup has
not been received. They rank well
up in the Portland league. Early
season games have not shown their
strength. With two men back from
the championship team of last year
they are expected to make a good
Bear Varsity and Freshmen Have
a Successful Season
University of California—Soccer
is fast attracting attention on the
University of California campus.
For the last few years followers of
sports have not exhibited a great
deal of interest in this game. This
season, however, the contests were
witnessed by more people than have
usually attended.
Under the able leadership of Coach
Carl Zamloch, the varsity and
freshman squads have come through
a very successful season, the form
er winning third place in the ten

Oregon to Meet California
Team in March
The Towner-Sterling educational
bill lias been selected ns the ques
tion for debate when the Oregon
women’s team meets that of the
University of California in March.
The exact date has not been deter
mined, but it will probably be either
March 26 or 28. Negotiations are
under way to include Washington
also, and make the meet triangular.
The question is new to the Ore
gon campus, as it has never been
used by an Oregon debate team. In
addition to that fact, it is most
timely, as it is still before congress.
One of the main features of the
bill is the establishment of a fed
eral department of education, the
head of which shall be a member
of the president’s cabinet. At the
present time educational work is
included in the scope of the depart
ment of the interior, as a bureau
under that department. The found
ing of a separate department with
education as its sole function is
considered by educators to be a
possible solution to educational dif
ficulties in the United States.
Though there is already a work
ing squad selected to prepare the
question, any girls who are interest
ed may yet have a chance at the
trip to California by making a try
out appointment with H. E. Rosson
or Gerrit Demmink, coaches, im
mediately. They may be found in
room 206, Sociology building.
Members of the present squad,
part of whom will continue to work
on the Ruhr question in preparation
for the O. A. C.-Willamette meet
February 15, are: May Helliwell,
Dorothy Newman, Mary Baker,
Lela Wade, Edna Spenker, Gert
rude Tucker and Cecil McKereher.
Elimination tryouts for the men’s
debate with Stanford and the Uni
versity of Washington began yes
terday. From a squad of about 17
men, coaches will select four to re
present the University in this tri
angle, which will be an event of
March 6. The question will be, “Re
solved, that the United States
should enter the world court.”

N. S.)—Coach “Tiny” Thornhill in

the recent rumors in the San Fran

an offer to replace “Uncle Charley”
Moran as coach at Center college.
Thornhill says that the first
rumor he had of the matter was
when he read it in the paper. The
same thing happened with refer

wasn’t until three days after the
papers printed the story that Thorn

Professor Herbert C. Howe
Tells of Certain Limit
• to Survival of Species
Civilization May be Forced
to a Simpler Physical
and Moral Environment
“That there is a certain mysteri
ous limit to the survival of species
is a commonplace of science. Man,
as one organic form among them, is
subject to the same law, by which
an organism, if not destroyed from
without, ultimately perishes by its
own decay,” Prof. Herbert C. Ilowe,
head of the English department,
declared, in speaking to the as
sembly in Villard hall yesterday
Professor Howe stressed the fact
that for centuries, a species has be
] gun, developed, reached the height
of its civilization, so to speak, and
then decayed. Man, too, has de
veloped and made modifications in
his environment, which culminated
in a modification of moral environ
Changes Produces Reforms
these changes have given rise'
to prophets an I reformers of two
classes; those who wish to modify
(they call it “reform” or “im
prove”) the environment, and those
who wish to modify (they call it
“reform” or “educato”) the moral
reactions of the organism.
Right conduct means conduct in
harmony with present environment,
and therefore tending to the sur
vival of the species. Education for
right conduct is then a biological
necessity, he said.
“I do not underestimate the
mental progress of college stu
dents,” said Professor Howe, “but
measured against what there is for
them to know, against what the
stability of civilization demands
that they know, they make dis
couraginglv small progress. The
colleges are graduating a mass of
men and women who are illiterates
—in the sense that they cannot use
their own language to express
thought ■with any exactitude.
Limit Seemingly Beached
“If, as seems likely, we have
reached the limit of inhibition and
perversion, of memory and reason
in the retention and application of
knowledge, then the very continu
ing, unstoppable progress of our
material environment will bring us
shortly to a forced liquidation of
civilization, a forced return to a
simpler physical and moral environ
ment—liowr much simpler no man
can as yet forecast,” Professor
Howe concluded.

Aggies Mentor to Complete
Remainder of Contract
CORVALLIS, Ore,, Jan. 25.—
Coach R. B. Rutherford resigned
as football coach and athletic
director of physical education of
Oregon Agricultural college early
this morning at a meeting of the
board of regents. His resigna
tion was accepted by that body.
Rutherford will finish out his
term of contract at O. A. C. by
remaining as director of physical
education until July 1. No suc
cessor is in view, but it is under
stood that negotiations will be
begun immediately for another
man. Rutherford has no plans as
to another position.
No statement was given by
the board of regents for the
resignation of Coach Rutherford.
He refused to discuss the matter,
but was strong in praise of the
loyalty shown him by the student
body and the support given him
by the varsity athletes. He is
proud of the staff that has aided
him in the perfection of a splen

Seven Men Besides Coach
and Manager Comprise
Squad Leaving Today
Contests Away From Home
Will Not Test Strength
of Lemon-Yellow Quintet
The varsity hoop squad will en
train today for Forest Grove, where
they meet Pacific on the first tus
sle of their week-end jaunt. Seven
men, besides Coach Reinhart and
Manager Killenwaters will make
the trip. Gowans, Hobson, King,
Latham, Chapman, and Jost will
compose the squad that will leave
today on the northern invasion.
Pacific will form the first opposi
tion for the varsity tonight at
Forest Grove, and although the
game here with tho Badgers elim
inated them from tho class of
dangerous contenders, they will
form good opposition. Tonight’s
game should give Coach Reinhart
a chance to whip his defense into
shape. Although the defense has
not been causing him any sleepless
nights, Billy confessed that the de
fensive work had not progressed as
rapidly as had tho offensive.
To Meet Dentists
At Oregon this year is found one
of those persons, fast fading from
the sport world—the playing man
ager. Although Ted Gillenwaters
makes the trip in the capacity of
manager, he has been working ont
with the squad all season in a
guard position and it is not without
the bounds of possibility that ho
will got into one of the contests
on the trip.
Tomorrow night the Lemon-Yel
low outfit will meet the North
Pacific Dentists on their homo
floor. Although Coach “Franc”
Jacobberger, of the Portland quint,
does not entertain nny hopes of
trimming Oregon, ho let it be known
that Saturday’s game would see the
Dentists going at top speed.
Forwards on Par
The lineup that will probably
start the game is the one that has
started the home contests, Gowans
and Hobson, forwards; Latham,
center; Shafer and Chapman,
guards. King will probably alter
nate with the two aforementioned
forwards. The three of them are
about on a par and it would be an
injustice to any one of them to
name two as regulars and the othor
as a substitute. Jost is too inex
perienced to come in the class of
either Chapman or Shafer, but
Reinhart hopes to give him enough
skull exercise to mako him into a
first-class alternate for either of the
guards or center.
Eutaxian, literary society on the
campus, has elected the following
to membership: Eugenia Zeibor,
Cecile Bennet, Gertrude Butler,
Mary Donaldson, Mary Nichol, Lucy
Vander Steer, Francis Simpson and
Imogens Lewis.
Paintings, Arts, and Crafts
on Exhibit Today in Museum
An exhibition of hand-wo^en goods
and rare embroideries will be open
to the public today in the little mu
seum in the arts building. The arti
cles were sent from Portland by the
Arts and Crafts society, and were un
packed yesterday. The display will!
be held in connection with the exhi- (
bit of the paintings of Emil Jacques, '
Belgian artist. The building will be !
open’to visitors from 9 a. m. to 5
p. m. The embroidery and stitchery
is varied, there being table covers,
runners, bags, scarves, luncheon sets l
and pillow tops. The cloth used in
cludes linens, cotton, wool, and silk.
The colors are rich; one piece of
tie-dyeing is a rich purple tone, and
the white and ecru articles are
worked in soft greens, golds, and
more vivid blues and scarlets. Ex
amples of Bussian and Italian work
are shown.
It was the first thought that Mrs.
Lee Hoffman, president of the Arts
and Craft could be present from Port
land, but word has been received by
Miss Maud Kerns, head of the nor
mal arts, that Mrs. Hoffman has
been ill. The exhibit will be of es
pecial interest to students of the
normal art3 who have been studying
weaving on hand looms.
The next exhibition in the depart
ment will be from February 3 to 13,
and will include wood block prints
sent by the American Federation of
Arts, with headquarters in New York.
