Campus Vote is 376 For anc
89 Against, With Nine
Houses Yet to Repor
Completed Returns to be
Sent East Monday, Pari
of Nation-wide Sentimenl
The vote of the Bok Peace Plar
among the housing organizations oi
University students, shows a four
to-one prrj/oailerence of opinion iu
'ts favor, with ■ 7C voting yes, and
SO nos, out of 465 ballots cast.
The balloting has progressed very
slowly and returns had been re
ceived, from only 29 organizations
up to a late hour last night. Nine
of the houses have failed thus far
to make any returns. It is hoped
that a complete check may be made
today and the returns from the
University sent east as a part of
the national vote. The representa
tives have been notified to turn iu
the written ballots today, without
fail, either at the Emerald office
or at the office of Claude Robinson.
Pamphlets Explain Question
In order that there might be no
doubt as to the method of balloting,
pamphlets explaining the plan were
distributed to all the organizations
on the campus. Enclosed in these
pamphlets are ballots, to be filled
out in full, and the ballots from
each house turned in to the com
mittee in charge at the places
The idea of.thus selecting a plan
to promote world peace originated
in the mind of Edward W. Bok,
former editor of the Ladies Home
V* Journal and prominent writer. He
decided, in the effort to bring
about at least thought of a perm
anent peace, to offer a prize of
fifty thousand dollars to the person
who should submit the most prac
tical plan toward such an end. The
person submitting the plan was not
allowed to sign his name to the
article, but was known to the jury
of award only by a certain number.
It has been decided to announce
publicly, on February 4, the name
of the author of the plan. It was
provided as a further stipulation
that ,if the plan selected did prove
practical and could be carried out,
then the winner was to receive an
added prize of $50,000.
Would Enter World Court
The ever-multiplying number of
inventions and improvements, it is
pointed out, are making it increas
ingly difficult for the nited States
to maintain its aloof distance from
the problems of the world, outside
its own boundaries. By the plan
suggested here the L nited States
would enter a permanent court of
international justice, but at the
same time would safeguard the
Monroe Doctrine and other Ameri
, can rights, as the acceptance and
1 regardance of the various prin
ciples of international law. The
provisions in the plan submitted by
the winner of the Bok contest are

Sorority Sisters
Give Bargain Hop
for Scholarship
Speaking of bargains. D ’ja
ever hear of forty-five minutes of
dancing for five cents? No,
j honest, no spoofing. Mid-week,
t too.
This is how it happens. On
Wednesday, February 13, each of
the women’s houses will give a
dance from 6:45 to 7:30 . o’clock,
and men will be invited to attend
I and pay five cents. It is not like
open house—men will go to the
■ house they chose and stay there
the full time, under this plan.
The dances will be most in
formal, the music being provided
by some girl in the organization
in order to make' expenses as low
as possible. The money thus col
lected will be added to the for
eign scholarship fund, raised by
the Women’s league, which will
bring a foreign student to the

Interest in Opera
Madame Bose McGrew, head of
the voice department at the Univer
sity of Oregon school of .music, is
now directing the staging of “The
Hour Hand,” Swiss folk opera,
which will be presented ou the
campus next Thursday evening,
January 31, and in Portland on
February 1.
“Madame McGrew is an artist,”
said Mrs. Beek, composer of the
opera, “and will give the produc
tion an artistic finish which only
one of Madame’s skill and experi
ence can provide.”
Madame McGrew’s musical edu
cation was obtained largely in Eur
ope, where she became a grand
opera singer. In Wagnerian roles as
well as in the opera field generally,
she made for herself a place of
Madame McGrew is much inter
ested in “The Hour Hand,” and is
giving much of her time to re
hearsals. A complete dress re
hearsal will be stayed Sunday at
the Heilig theater.
During one of Mrs. Beck’s recent
visits to Portland she talked' with
Mr. Brandenberger, the Swiss con
sul, who expressed his profound in
terest in the opera. At the Port
land production, with several of his
friends, he ■will occupy a box, which
will decorated in Swfiss and Ameri
can flags.
Mr. Brandenberger is lending Mrs.
Beck a very rare Swiss cuckoo
clock for the Portland production.
“Mental Tests for Emigrant Sex

the regular February meeting, ac
cording to a statement given by
President A. E. Caswell, of the or

held February 19, the third Tues
day in the month. “Expectations
are that this will prove of special
interest because of the present emi

Smoking Furnace at Y. W.
Drives Sisters Into Street
All the campus world seems to be
a cheerful place, most of the time.
Of course when it is time to pay
fees, or the week of final exams,
one expects to find the place sub
merged in grief. But these times
are short, and of a very temporary
But there is one building on this
campus, the occupants of which
have been extremely sad for a
month. And it has not been exam
time, being the first of the term;
and it is a place where the mere
matter of paying fees is not to be
considered. But the keepers of the
place have greeted their guests with
tears streaming down their cheeks,
their voices choking with some kind
of emotion, and the longer the
guests stayed, the more depressed
and uncomfortable they would
feel. They soon begin to weep, to
sniffle and to cough.
But things reached a climax yes
terday. It is thought now that the
spell of sorrow is over.
The building is the Y. W. C. A.
bungalow-. Every day when the
fire in the furnace has been started,
the room has filled with smoke, un
til the,persons who stay around very
long, have had to run outside ever
so often to get a breath of fresh

has been, “excuse me, please,” as

smoke-filled eyes.

some say for the best—others say
for the worst. It is safe to say

First Track Competition
Will Start at 2 p. m.;
! , Held on Hayward Field
Athletes From the Varsity
and Frosh Squads to
Work at Same Time
This afternoon at 2 o’clock
Track Coach Bill Hayward will
start the first of a series of track
meets which are to be run every
Saturday until examinations and
spring vacation breaks the mono
tony and gives the men a short
rest before the final grind that will
fit them for the big tournaments
of spring. This . first competition
will only include the distance men.
“This is not an elimination con
test,” insisted Bill, “but is devised
to give the men practice under
competitive conditions.” Bill has
also devised a chart on which he
plans to mark the results of these
contests. Doing this will give him
at all times a graphic picture of
each man’s progress. These charts
will be so arranged so that the men
themselves will have access to them
and be able to judge their train
ing efforts accordingly.
Men For Meet Listed
The freshmen and the varsity
distance men will work out together,
this afternoon. The following is a
list of the men who will enter in
either the 880 or the mile events:
Varsity — Keating, Stephenson,
Web Jones, Tetz, McCellan, Gilbert,
Read, Grary, Humphrey, Houston,
McKenna, Mauney, Gerke, McCune,
Muller, Walker, McColl, Everett
Jones and Robson. The following
freshmen will make their initial ap
pearance in competition on Hay
ward field: Waite, Button, Man
ning, Conley, Jomlmson, Gray,
Runk Griffith, Michell, Jeffries,
Swank, Gurnea, Hartwell and Cash.
Bill has also made arrangements
for placing a light in the football
men’s dressing room under the
grandstand, so that he will be able
to project action pictures.
Pictures to be used
“I intend to take pictures of
each individual in the different
events,” Bill explained, “then
gather and explain their different
faults as caught by the camera.
This method should help them to
develop faster.”
Work on the new javalin runway
and the jumping pits is nearing
completion. Once these are instal
led it will give Oregon one of the
most complete courses on the coast.
The 220-yard straightaway is also
under construction. This will be
constructed on the east side of the
field and will give the inhabitants of
the bleachers an opportunity to see
the finish of this sprint.
Funeral of Ellenora Campbell Will
Be This Morning
The funeral of Ellenora Campbell
will be held in Salem this morning
at eleven o ’cock. Miss Campbell
died Thursday night of heart
trouble after illness of a month.
Miss Campbell entered the Uni
versity last fall as a sophomore in
the school of journalism. In the
early part of the winter term, she
left college because of illness. While
on the campus, Miss Campbell was
a resident of Hendricks hall.

“Zitz!” was echoed by another but

j On seing a man with a beard or
mustaches one must cry “Zitz!”
before anyone else does, or pay to

Delinquents Will be Fined
$3.00 For Delay
„ Only four hours remain in which

The business office will open at 8
this morning, and will remain open
until 12 noon. When the windows go
up again Monday morning, it will be
too late. So it’s a toss-up between
this morning or next week and extra
fees and extra procedure.
E. P. Lyon, cashier, reports* that
up to Thursday evening 1,452 stu
dents had squared themselves with
the university. Many more visited
the business office yesterday. But
there are still some laggards, and it
is these to whom the office issues a
special warning.
Owing to the new system of en
rollment for the entire year, the cash
ier has no figures on how many there
are who have not as yet paid, for
some students who registered in the
fall are not on the campus this term,
and similarly, there are others who
are new here this term. Until the
complete class enrollment lists are
sent in by all the professors, figures
for this term’s attendance are largely
conjectural, and consequently cannot
be used as a basis for checking up on
unpaid fees.

by Esther Church
Esther Church, sophomore in the
University, and a major in the school
j of music, was awarded John Stark
Evans’ scholarship of fifty dolars,
T)r. John Landsbury, dean of the
school of music, announced yesterday.
“The scholarship was awarded
j chiefly on the basis of general prom
ise in the field of piano work,” said
the dean, “and also for good student
ship, both as to diligence and musical
gift. Her playing exemplifies the
i unlimited purpose she puts forth in
I her work, and her touch and tech
nique are very noticeable features.”
There were several applicants for
the scholarships which entitles the

Contract Holds Penn State
Man at Eastern School
For an Eight Year Period
Earl Will Interview Other
Prominent Applicants
Before Returning Home
Hugo Bezdek, Pennsylvania State
football mentor, and former Oregon
coach, is at present in no position
to accept an offer from local Uni
versity -authorities, had that offer
been made by the representatives,
\ irgil Earl and Ralph Cake, who,
while in the east, went to soe the
Pennsylvania State mentor and dis
cover his status at that institution.
It was not the intention of the
Oregon representatives to make a
definite offer, but to see how Bez
dek stood. Bezdek, it became known
has an eight year contract at home
of the Nittany Lions and that is
the reason he is satisfied and also
unable to consider other offers.
Coaches to be Interviewed
Athletic Director Earl had an
other end in view when he visited
Bezdek and that was to get the
Pennsylvania State coach’s opinion
on a couple of ex-Pennsylvania
State players, who are among the
applicants for the Oregon job.
Earl will not be back at the local
school for several days, as he is
planning on remaining in the east
and seeing several of the applicants
for the coaching job.
At a recent banquet in Harris
burg, Bezdek expressed himself as
being entirely satisfied with his
position at Pennsylvania State col
lege and expected to stay there.
Friends are Disappointed
Friends of Bezdek, both in Eu
gene and Portland, have expressed
a general feeling of disappointment
that the possibility of obtaining
the great coach seems to be out
of the question. Feeling for
“Bez,” as he was usually called,
has been quite general. That who
ever is finally selected will receive
whole-Jioarted support is predicted
now that the Bezdek incident is
apparently closed.
Women’s Weekly Groups Held Up
by Lack of Books
The weekly discussion groups
( scheduled to begin Monday in the
women’s living organizations have
been postponed until a later date.
The important reason for tho de
■ lay is that the books to be used
in the discussion have not arrived.
The fact that many of the girls
and the leaders asked to lead the
discussions were taken up with the
work for the Stuart Walker plays,
was another cause. Edna Largent
and Ruth Scnsenich compose the
committee which is supervising the
i work of the groups.
First of Series of Open Forum
Meetings to be Sunday
Dr. II. D. Sheldon will speak Sun
day night at the Congregational
church at the first of a series of

will take place at 7:30. Dr. Sheldon’s
subject is to bo “The Place of
Education in the Commonwealth of
the Future.”
The next rveek, a similar meeting
will be held on Sunday night, at
which Professor Mary Watson
Barnes will talk on the “Teachings
of Morality in Literature.”

Oregon Wins
from Pacific;
Score 41-18
(Special to the Emerald)—The
University of Oregon basketball
squad won an easy victory over
Pacific university tonight, 41 to
18. Hobson, forward for Ore
gon was high point man of the
game, with 19 markers, while
Blackman, guard for Pacific,
lead his team with 9. Pacific
played a good defensive game the
first half, holding the Lemon
Yellow to 12 6, but weakened in
the second period, when the
Badger guards were unable to
stop the Oregon scoring machine.
Oregon’s guard combination of
Chapman and Shafer was respon
sible for the low score of Pacific.
Hunk Latham, lanky center, did
not play his usual game, failing
to equal his performance when
the local team played in Eugene.
The team lineups were as fol
lows—Oregon: Forwards, Go wans
and Hobson; center, Latham;
guards, Chapman and Shafer.
Pacific—Forwards, Jesse and Hol
loway; center, Snyder; guards,
Blackman and Adams.
Frosh and Varsity Squads
Ready For Contest
A big swimming meot will be
liel(l on January 30 between the
freshman and varsity aquatic teams
in the Woman’s building tank.
Both squads have been practising
regularly and are beginning to shape
into competitive form.
Coach Rudy Fahl of the varsity
team has not announced his regu
lar team as yet, but it is oxpected
to place a fast, well balanced line
up in the race. ^With Palmer, Hors
fall, Yoran, Heidor and Angel back
from last year’s varsity to form the
nucleus for this year’s squad, and
with tho addition of some promis
ing new material, the prospects
point to a fast aggregation.
The freshman squad, as it is
composed at present, according to
Coach Don Parks, is made up of 10
men. Stone has shown up especial
ly well in the 50, backstroke, and
dives. He is the most versatile
man on the squad.
Lombard, who formerly swam tor
the Multnomah club, is displaying
good form in the 50, 100 and 220
yard dashes. Alderman, a fast
swimmer from California, is another
man of promise in the 100 and 220.
Hoyden and Hyns are otlior men
showing up to good advantage in
the 100, and 220. Marshall is a
fast swimmer in the 50 and 100.
Bonbright is specializing in the
220, and Hills, and Kingman in the
50-yard dashes. Loo is showing
great promise in the dives.
The freshman relay team will
probably bo chosen from Stone,
Alderman, Lombard and Ilyns.
Parks announces that a final
tryout will bo held on this coming
Monday, and the men who show up
to best advantage in the races at
that time will, in all probability,
form the team to oppose the var
I sity in the coming meet.
Lincoln High Beaten 41-20;
Medford Loses 43-20 in
Evening Tussle in Gym
First Tilt is Fast While
Second is Slower and
Rougher; Reinhart Stars
The University freshmen basket
ball team had a hard day yoster
day when they played two high
school fives, winning from both by
big scores. In the afternoon Lin
coln high school of Portland took
tho small end of a 41-20 score,
when the frosh played probably
their best game of the season, and
in tho evening Medford high was
defeated 43 to 20.
Tho first game was fast and clean
throughout, with tho freshmen
soomingly not having tho edge to
any great extent except that
they wero more accurate in basket
shooting. Reinhart, freshman guard,
played a stellar game, hooping
baskets from all angles. He was
high point man with five field
goals and one free throw, making
a total of 11 poits.
Tho Lincoln team put up good
ball, but wero unablo to score very
heavily against their more experi
enced and older opponents. Tho
guarding combination of Marks and
Lewis worked hard and was re
sponsible for holding down what
might have been a much larger
score. ,Price, forward fo(r tho
visitors, played well throughout,
scoring six points and helping his
team mates by good passing.
Second Game Slow
The second game, played in the
ovening, against Medford, was con
siderably slower and rougher than
the one against the railsplitters a
few hours before. Though the fresh
men were ablo to run up about the
same score, 43-20, the strain of
having played the previous- contest
was evident.
Wcstermnn, speedy frosh forward,
seemed as if he had saved some of
his onorgy for tho second game, as
he succeeded in being high point
man with 10 markers. His running
mate, Westergren, played ono of his
best passing and offensive games,
taking tho ball from his opponents
many times to assist in making
Ivnips, Medford forward, was the
moat consistent performer for the
southern team, his total in points
being seven. Allen, center for the
visitors, though not able to out
jump his opponent Flynn, played a
fast floor game.
Coach Evans, in both games,
started the same lineups, with the
exception of the center position. In
the first contest, Okerberg was the
favorite, while Flynn was listed in
the second for the pivot position.
Westcrgron and Westcrman, for
wards, proved a good combination.
They were relieved for short periods
by Chiles and Dallas, who kept up
