Joe Frazer and Walter Malcolm,
veteran varsity debaters, will leave
for Portland tomorrow -to make
final arrangements for tlie radio
debate to be held between the Uni
versities of Oregon and California
Friday night at 8 o ’clock. The Ore
gon men will broadcast from station
KGW, the Oregonian, and the Cali
fornians will remain in Berkeley,
and, by means of the remote con
trols, system, liatfe their 'speeches
sent out by the Oakland Tribune,
station KLX.
Members of the University and
Eugene communities are* asked to
notify the Emerald if they have
facilities for listening in on the de
bate and are willing to share those
facilities. In Thursday’s or Fri
day’s paper a list of these will be
published in order that as many stu
dents and townspeople as possible
may hear the first forensic contest
of its kind, anywhere or anytime.
Program Is Timed
The program for the evening has
been definitely timed, so that the
whole affair will take exactly 118
minutes, or practically two hours.
The California debaters will be

Briefs for the constructive
speeches, which will be 15 minutes
in length, have been exchanged be

The question for debate is: “Re
solved, that the Bok Peace Plan

Following the debate, listeners-in
are invited to write on a card of

within 10 days to either of the two

be permissible to take or send the
votes directly to the University ex

the end of the 10-day period, the
winner of the contest will be an
High schools all over the state
have been notified of the contest
by means of a circular letter sent
out some time ago by Dan E. Clark,
of the extension division. A re
sponse which leaders of the plan
consider highly gratifying has been
received, and it is apparent that
many high school students will take
advantage of the opportunity to
hear an intercollegiate and inter
state debate in their own school
buildings or other gathering place
in their towns. Replies from the
high schools also indicate that the
students wiii take advantage of the
privilege of casting votes for the
side they consider the superior.

Dr. John J. Landsbury, of the
school of music, has a large re
ceiving set and by using this,
there will be facilities for ap
proximately that number of lis
teners in the music building. No
seats are reserved, so that it will
be a matter of those who come
first being accommodated.
Edward Robbins, a student on
the campus, who owns a radio set,
will operate the machine at “the
school of music. The debate

Artistry of Renee Chemet
Charms Campus Audience
By Josephine Rice
Renee Chemet received an un-!
usual ovation from a crowd that
filled the Methodist church to over- j
flowing last night. Mine. Chemet’s :
exceedingly gracious personality,
her dignity, and her perfect mastery
of her violin combined to produce
one of the most memorable con
certs of the year. ,
Mme. Chemet plays with the
quiet laic and assurance of the
finished artist. Her hearers are un
aware of the technical difficulties'
of her pieces, the true test of
artistry. The sonorous tunes of her
rare old violin, sometimes singing
exultantly, and again almost sob
bing, contributed not a little to the
perfect ensemble of the evening’s
^ pleasure.
The program was a well chosen j
one containing numbers from most
ly classical composers, though the
finest of modern violin composers
were represented.
She openel her program with thd*
Sonata in A major by Haendel. The
beginning bars of the Andante were
played on the D and G strings
mostly, bringing out all the richness
of tone that the violin contained.
Mme. Chemet fairly made her in
strument sing.
Sammartini’s “Canto amoroslp1,”
an old Italian song, opened her
second group. It was one of the
simple constructed melodic pieces of
that time and Mme. Chemet’s inter
pretation was wonderfully sympa
thetic. The grace and delicacy with

Track Candidates Listed
to Report for Training
as Unit on Field at 4 p. m.
Sermon Adorns Shack’s
Grey Wall; “Keep Up
Grades” Is Seen First
“Bead it and weep” is the way
Coach Hayward titles his posted
list of varsity candidates who are
to appear at 4 p. m. o’clock every
afternoon for training as a unit.
Bill added, “These men have been
selected and will be known as the
varsity squad; others will be added
as they show .improvement.”
Coach Hayward made it clear
that this is not a permanent list,
but includes those whom he has
judged as showing the best in their
work this winter. The weekly meets
I will continue and from time to time
lie will add others to this select
group of afternoon performers—it
is from these that he will select
! the team to uphold Oregon track
prestige .in Ihe spring struggles.
Runners Are Listed
From a list of almost 70 varsity
aspirants, Bill has chosen about 40
to work out in the first squad. In
the distances, the 880, the mile and
two-mile raqfcs, the 'following 18
men have been selected as the most
promising material available: Van
Guilder, Lawrence, Walker, Keat
ing, Stephenson, McOoll, Tetz,
Crarv, Rutherford, Huston, Mauney,
Robson, Gerke, "McCune, Muller,
Campbell, Schultz and Dahl.
Six sprinters have made the first
hurdle toward a place on the team:
Snyder, McAullife, Young, A.
Tuck, Lucas and Lewis. In the
440, Risley, Rosebraugh, Ager, Kin
ney, Lucas, Hermance and Campbell
are signed to go. Hurdle prospects
are some brighter than a month or
so ago, with deafer, Carruthers,
Young, R. Tuck, Hunt and Rosen
burg developing.
Oregon should show real competi
tion in the field events against any
team sent against them. In the
jumps, Spearow, Young, Eby, Hills,
L. Anderson, Hollman and Rosen
burg are showing promise. The men
Bill has listed so far to take care
of the javalin, shot and discus heav
ing are: A. Tuck, Mautz, Anderson,
Stockwell, R. Tuck, McAullife,
Beatty and Winterer.
Slogan Is Picked
“One for all, all for one,” has
been chosen from the sayings of a
certain Mr. Dumas as representa
tive of the spirit they are develop
ing on Hayward field these cold
winter days. On the grey walls of
Bill’s, as yet unnamed headquarters
adjacent to the field, several other
pertinent expressions of track spirit
have been inscribed. Over the var
sity list the following was placed:
“You are the men selected to
represent your University in track
and field. What you get out of it
depends on how much you put in.”
“Take good care of yourselves
and do your best at all times,” and,
as a final warning, Bill has posted
in big red letters:
He finished his sermon on the
wall by putting under the list the
inscription: “Those that are not on
this list, fight to get on. The team
isn’t picked yet.”
Next Saturday at 2:30 will be
held the fourth of the winter meets;
five events have been planned, the
righ hurdles, mile, 880, shot put
and the 100-yard dash.
Northwestern University Commends
Work of Oregon Man
One of Oregon’s graduates, who
is making a name for himself at
another college, is Ian Campbell,
who graduated from Oregon last
spring and is now attending
Northwestern university. The
geology department in which he
majored has received a letter from
this university, saying if there is
anyone else in Oregon like Ian
Campbell, to send him on, he is just
the kind of man they.want.
This, the output of the Univer
sity, does more good as an adver
tisement than any other thing, said
Dr. Smith of the geology depart
California Has Practical
and Beautiful Building;
Washington Will Copy
Canadian University “Hart
House” Combines Many
Features of the Campus
The place that the student union
building is beginning to play in the
life of America is being demonstrated 1
by the efforts which universities are
making along that line. California
has probably the most practical
union on the coast, and it is the
California union that the University
of Washington plans to copy. Farther
away, the union of the University of
Toronto in Canada stands out for its
distinctive features.
Hart house, as it is called after its
founder, was begun in 1911. After:
; the war the plans were improved and j
I it was opened in 1919. .T. B. Bicker-!
steth, who is in charge of the union,
tells in a communication of the var
ious features of the structure. At the
very bottom is a theater which holds
500 people and which is under the
care of a professional. All the light
ing is done by engineering students.
Theater Is Excellent
“The theater is perfectly equipped,”
Mr. Bickerstetli says. “The acting
itself is done, 50 percent by the stu
dents and 50 percent by graduates,
younger members of the staff and one
or two interested people from the city
of Toronto. A student can see a
whole year’s series of eight plays for
$5. The theater is also used for
faculty and college dramatic societies.
A sketch room and locker rooms are
found on the same floor.
“Higher up we have billiard rooms,”
he continues, “which are a very fruit
ful thing, of course, one of our
greatest sources or revenue. There
is a reading room where you can get
all the periodicals. There is a cha-!
pel, a very beautiful chapel, quite
small—it will hold only 40 or 50
Dining Hall Beautiful
“The great dining hall itself, I
can say, is one of the most beautiful
halls I have ever seen anywhere. It
is extremely similar in size, though j
far higher than the great hall in 1
Christ church at Oxford. At one.
end, at the great south window, we
have all the arms of the universities
of the British Empire, which make a
very fine show of color. At the
other end we have all the arms of
the universities of the allied and
associate nations during the war.
“Then upstairs we have a library,
probably the.most beautiful room in
the house, the most luxuriously
equipped, in which we allow no talk
ing and no smoking. It is the only
room in the whole house where there
is no smoking. Our number of vol
umes is small. We have only 3000 ■
or 4000 at the present moment.
Library Small and Select
“We do not compete with the uni
versity library but we have all the
best books of fiction and biography
and travel in the library and a man
is supposed to treat that room as he
would his own private library. We
have a catalog. We have no marks j
particularly on the books. We have
no marks on the shelves. The place
is packed from nine o’clock in the
morning until eleven o’clock at
night when the house shuts.
“Quite near that there is a lecture
room. No university lectures, of
course, are given in that but we se
cure prominent speakers. Then we
have a music room. We put on once
a week, a musical recital, and from
5 to 6 on Tuesday afternoons we have
that room absolutely full of men,
listening to classical music. That, I
think, is one of the most interesting
things in the whole house. It has
been so successful that we are going
to put on more musical recitals at
that hour, which is the time when the
men can get to them, after lectures
are over, from 5 to 6 in the after- ,
House Has Noble Aim
“The prayer of the founders of’
Hart house is this, ‘That Hart house,
under the guidance of its warden,
may serve in generations to come, the
highest interests of the university by

Assembly Speaker Knows
Oregon Pioneers
Fred Lockley, who will address
the assembly Thursday, has nil inti
mate knowledge of the history of
the Northwest, through knowing
and interviewing so many of the
persons who aided in the develop
meat of this country. It is said
of Mr. Lockley that he has inter
viewed more pioneers in this section
than any other man.
He is well acquainted with the
human interest side of the history
of Oregon and Waasliington through
his association with various pion
eers. Mr. Lockley himself grew
up in the West and lived for sev
eral years on an Indian reservation.
Mr. Lockley will have for his sub
ject; “The Oregon Pioneer,” and
it is expected that he will use many
of his experiences with the old
pioneers that he has interviewed, as
a basis of his talk. He will show
the part that the pioneer played in
the development of the Northwest
and especially of Oregon. This ad
drss of Mr. Lockley, according to
Karl Onthank, secretary to the
president, will prove quite interest
ing because of the intimate knowl
edge of the speaker on the subject.
Mr. Lockley is connected with
the Oregon Journal, of Portland.
His special work on the paper is
the writing of these stories of the
old residents of Oregon. But he
does not q/bnfinie Ids wriifng to
pioneers alone; he interviews and'
writes up all manner of interesting
persons^ He has written several
stories on phases of campus life at
the University.
The musical feature of Thurs
day ’s assembly will be a song by
the Girls’ Glee club. The meeting
will be held in Villard hall. *
Annual Business Meeting Is Special
Feature of Occasion
Tea will be served from 4:30 to
5 o’clock preceding the annual
business meeting of the University
Young Women’s Christian associa
tion, Thursday afternoon in the Y.
W. C. A. bungalow, according to an
nouncement from the committee
arranging for the meeting.
Business to bo taken up at the
business meeting includes the re
port of the nomination committee
for the 1924-25 officer of the asso
ciation, the presentation of the re
vised constitution, and the reports
for the year’s work from depart
ment heads.
All members of the association,
as well as other University women
interested, are urged to attend.
Luncheon for Religious Worker
Postponed Till Today
Dr. O. D. Foster, executive secre
tary of the National Church Boards
federation, who was expected to ar
rive on the campus yesterday morn
ing in time to attend a luncheon
at the College Side Inn, to be held
in his honor, was unable to be here
until the early afternoon, owing to
his stopping in Portland after leav
ing the University of Washington.
Consequently, the luncheon has been
postponed until today noon, accord
ing to Rev. Henry Davis, who has
arranged the affair.
Members of the board of direc
tors of the United Christian Work
of the University of Oregon, to
gether with four members of the
Y. M. C. A. student cabinet, will
comprise the guests.
Dr. Campbell Will Address:
Commencement Class i
1 he commencement address for the
University will be given by William
Wallace Campbell, president of the
1 Diversity of California, on June 10.
It lias not yet been announced who
will give the baccalaureate sermon
for the commencement exercises.
President Campbell, although ho has
not been officially inaugurated as
president of the University of Calif
ornia, 1ms been acting in that capacity
tor about a year. His inauguration
was to have takon place some time
ago but due to the fire which de
stroyed part of Berkeley this had
to be postponed.
President Campbell is noted as a
scientist and especially as an astron
omer. Before becoming president of
the University of California he was
director of the Lick observatory in
| California. Ilo was appointed to that
position in 1901 after being acting
director for the previous year. Ho
has headed many of the expeditions
of the observatory, heading the ex
peditions to India in 1897-S, the
one to Spain in 1905, the one to Flint
Island in January 1908, and the one
to Kiev, Russia in 1914.
President Campbell is the author
of several books and numerous papers
on astronomy. Among his books are
“Tho Elements of Practical Astron
omy” and “Stellar Movements.”
Well worn English Hymnal and
Bible Gifts from Harry Cherry
“ ‘A collection of Hymns for the
Use of Peoplo Called Methodists,’
by Rev. John Wesley, published in
1779 in London.” So reads the title
of one of the two interesting books
recently given to tho library by
Harry Cherry, 503 Pearl street, of
j this city. The hymn book presents
j a fat little appearance, being about
an inch and three-fourths thick,
j two inches wide and about four
j inches in length. A well-worn and
ragged-cornered binding suggests
i that many a hymn had been sung
; from it.
The other book is an English ver
| sion of a Polyglot! Bible, published
] in England in 1832. Several old
I illustrations add to the interesting |
j appearance of tho volume, which,
: like tho hymn book, has had a great

Montana’s games thrown out by
ruling of conference president.
Tonight the varsity will meet “Doc”
Bolder’s Cougars in tho last game of
the season on the local floor. As far
as conference standings are concerned,
tonight’s game will not make one
iota of difference as both teams are
out of the running. That does not
mean that this evening’s affair will
bo of a tepid nature because both
crows are stinging from a couple of
conference defeats.
Coach Billy’s quint dropped a pair
of games to Tdaho and Washington
respectively while tho Cougars took
rather a mauling at the hands of our
Orange shirted contemporaries the
other night.
Local Prospects Good
At the outset, it looks as though
(he locals would have the slight edge
in tonight’s tussle by virtue of hav
ing defeated the Pullmnnites on their
own floor earlier in the season. Then
too, Oregon beat the Aggies and the
Aggies trimmed the Cougars. Sounds
nice, but since those days several
things have happened to the local ag
Tn the first place, although Rein
hart has a first class pair of defen
sive guards in Chapman and Gillen
waters, it so happens that neither of
them can play the floor in a manner
that makes Billy’s offense look its
best. Oillen waters has developed into
the proverbial tower of strength on
the defense but still lacks the self
confidence, gained from experience,
to be a valuable offensive cog. Chap
man, on the other hand, has the exper
ience but also has a game leg which
does not propel him around as fast
as it used to.
Regular Lineup to be Used
The probable Cougar lineup that
will faco the local squad tonight is
the one that Bolder used against the
Aggies with Kelso and Schultz in the
forward berths, Nolan as the pivot
man, and Schroeder and Reese at
guards. Chandler and Morgan will
probably break into the fray. Rein
hart will undoubtedly start his last
combination of Cowans, Hobson,
Latham, Gilleuwaters, and Chapman.

Soldier Receives Sentence
for Absence Without Leave
“Accused, stand up!” This in mil
itary tones from the head of the
military court. “You are hereby sen
tenced to be confined to quarters at
hard labor for two months, and to
forfeit 40 days’ pay.” And the
strictly milatry trial of Private John
| Walker, 3d New York, accused of de
sertion, but convicted only of being
j absent without leave, came to its
military end before general court
; martial, at the R. O. T. C. barracks
| yesterday afternoon.
The sentence, the heaviest possible
I under military regulations, was al
leged to have been influenced by the
fact that a more interesting ease had
not been ehosen.
For two hours the court listened
to the accounts of witnesses concern
ing the character, habits and propen
sides of the hypothetical John Wal
ker. The mass of testimony was
presented after extrication from the
legal entablements. Objection and
difficulties were brought about by
the fact that in some eases witness
did not say just what was expected
of them. It was found that the pri
soner had gone A. W. O. L. to see
his girl after being refused a pass,
had donned civilian clothes, and had
been found in an intoxicated condi
tion in the city of Philadelphia. Be
ing absent one day over the 20 day
time limit, he was declared a deser
ter, but plead guilty only t.o the
cliarge of being A. W. O. In, claim- ^ .
ing that he intended to return.
