The pioneers wore not afraid to face the great prob lems that confronted them. Do you fear that the problem ahead of you is too large? “In the light of what our fathers and the early settlers of the coun try did to provide for education when the country was a wilderness, why should we put up with an in adequate library, insufficient dor mitories and a lack of necessary equipment, when the state is now rich and prosperous? If every per son yivho graduates l^ere and if every student who is studying here, will go to his friend and say that Oregon needs to lead in the field of education as she leads in many of the industrial fields; if everyone interested will do this, there will be no difficulty in raising the money desired.” Mr. Lockley, who was introduced ,by E. A. Booth, of the Booth Kelly company, as the man who is laying the foundation for the great story of the Oregon country which men will some day love to read, traced briefly some of the early settlements made in the Oregon country. The struggles of Jason Lee when he came to the then for eign field ho preadh the gospel, the colonizing expeditions of Mar cus Whitman, the bringing of the first printing press to the country from the Hawaiian Islands, all were told by the Journal man. “If ever a country was full of romance,” he said, “it is Oregon. If ever a writer wants material, he can find it here. The activities of the Whitmans and the Spauld ings of the early days are all rich in material for the most romantic and adventurous kind of literature. “The vigorous life of those days stimulated the mentality of the pioneers and of those who have in continued on page three) TROY PHIPPS PREPARING FOR MASTER’S EXAMINATION Troy Phipps, graduate assistant in the physics department, is now preparing to take his oral exami nation for his master’s degree. “He will take it some time during the opening weeks of the spring term,” said Dr. W. P. Boynton, head of the physic-s department. “The ob ject of holding the examination so early is to relieve him of that wor ry around commencement time.” IfROSH TRTDUTS i NEXTJATURDAY Yearling Track Team to be Chosen by Competition; Relays Come March 8 MEDLEY WILL BE RUN Lettermen Will Compete; First Year Men Are Doped to Win Meet The date for tlie inter-class re ! lays lias been set for March 8, and jtryouts for the freshman team will j be held next Saturday in addition [ to the regular meet. This will be Coaeli Hayward’s first opportunity to get a line on his frosh squad as a unit, and to discover what the individuals among his 70 or 80 as pirants are capable of doing under real competition. | Five races are on the elimination | contest program for next Saturday I and the first four men from each j race will bo chosen to form tho yearling team, which will compete | with the other classes March 8. ; Bill seems to believe the juniors and seniors will have to combine their efforts to give the sophomores and yearlings proper competition at the carnival; and even with this com bination the freshman racers have the best chance of carrying off the honors, unless something unex pected happens to bolster up the upper-class morale. Six Belays Listed The five races listed next Satur day for tho frosh tryouts are: the 100, 220, 440, 880 and the mile. By picking the first four men in each of these events, Coach Hayward expects to have a strong aggrega tion contending in the six relay events the following Saturday. The relay races to be run then are the 440, 880, mile relay, two-mile relay and four-mile relay. There will also be a mile medley race. This medley is a peculiar affair in that it gives the spectators an opportunity to watch both sprinters and distance men working the same race. Two men will run 220 yards each, then one will run a quarter mile and another will run a half mile. With teams from the three ag gregations entering, this should prove one of the best races of the afternoon. Hurdlers to it ace In the regular meet Saturday, the mile, 880, shot put and 100-yard dash will be run by entries from both freshman and varsity teams. There will also be an 80-yard liigh hurdle race for varsity candidates only. Coach Hayward is staging this to give the men an idea of wdiat they are able to do and of what is expected of them under real competition. Even though it is not the custom for lettermen to compete in most inter-class activities, Bill has ar ranged so that varsity lettermen will compete in the meet March 8. This gives the upper-class teams as a whole some advantage, but the frosh have a far greater number of men turning out for each event, so things are not so uneven as they at first appear. The meet Satur day will start promptly at 2:30. NAMES MUST BE FILED Organizations Urged to Enter Lists of Members Immediately The business office of the Uni versity gave notice yesterday that if all the honorary and professional organizations on the campus did not immediately turn in the names of their members, grade lists for the groups would not be made out for publication. So far, there have been not more than eight or ten lists turned in. Of the 20 organizations which turned in lists of their members last year, only four have sent in the names of members this year. TWENTY-FIVE EESPOND TO FIRST VOLLEYBALL CALL About twenty-five girls turned out to the first doughnut volley ball practice held yesterday after noon. More are expected to attend before the end of the week. For | most of the girls who are practicing, this is their first trial at the sport. ; Practices will continue till next : Thursday, when the house teams 1 will be chosen. u-:—i— Debater in First I | Contest by Radio j i O--— tOJ.1 1 Walter Malcolm “SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL” WILL BE PLAYED HERE March 6, 7 and 8 Dates Set for Presentation A large all-star cast will produce Richard Sheridan’s “School for Scan dal” at Guild hall, March 6, 7, and S. Members of both companies arc taking leading roles in this comedy. Mr. Reddie, head of the department of drama and the speech arts, is di recting the play. It has beon rehears ing for a long time, and the work now is to polish it. The “School for Scandal” is a very famous classical comedy, pic turing 18th centu,ry society satirical ly. It is full of clever lines, good comedy situations and subtle humor; in some places, however, its wit be comes jocularity. Everyone is famil iar with the cranky but lovable Sir Peter Teazle, saucy Lady Teazle, and tho far-famed “School for Scandal,” that assemblage of sharp-tongued people who sharpen their wits on other people’s reputations. The “School for Scandal” is fun damentally human, but its construc tion is artificial, and the society it represents is artificial. In its pro duction Mr. Reddie aims to koep as much as possible that spirit of bril liant artifice, in order to preserve its original merit as a classical play. Stage settings and acting will bo, therefore, of strictost simplicity. The cast is as follows: Sir Peter Teazle, Barnard Mc Phillips; Sir Oliver Surface, Virgil Mulkey; Joseph Surface, Darrell Larsen; Charles Surface, Dave Swan son; Crabtree, Wade Kerr; Sir Ben jamin Backbite, Gordon Wilson; Row ley, Walter Malcolm; Moses, Doxro Prillaman; Trip, Henry Sheldon; Snake, Paul Krausse; Careless, Terva Hubbard; Sir Harry Bumper, Boyd Homewood; Servants, Clifford Zeh rung, Boyd Homewood; Lady Teazle, Elizabeth Robinson; Marie, Betty Belle Wise; Lady Sneerwoll, Wenona Dyer; Mrs. Candour, Katherine Pin noo; Maid, Portia Kidwell. NORTON TO HEAD NIGHTS Groups’ First Annual Informal Dance to be Held Saturday Night Charles Norton was elected presi dent of the Oregon Knight chapter of the Intercollegiate Knights at a regular meeting of the organization held last night. Norton succeeds Ed Tapfer, whose office expired a few days ago. Charles Norton has been treasurer of the chapter and has been active on important committees of the organization. The regular meeting time is set for Wednesday night at 7:15 and will possibly be held in Condon hall, instead of the Woman’s building. Saturday night the Oregon Knights are giving their first annual infor mal dance which all alumni mem bers of the organization are invited. Plans have been made to accomodate 50 couples and decorations of old knighthood effect are to be used. USB OF LIQUOR MAY CAUSE EXPULSION FROM SCHOOL Washington State College—(By P. I. N. S.)—Following a motion made at the Associated Student meeting February 21, the student body went on record as favoring the expulsion from school of any person found possessing or being under the influ ence of intoxicating liquor. VARSITY MEETS - AGGIES TONIGHT' Pennant Hopes Crushed But Second Conference Place Is Still Within Reach BEAVERS GOING STRONG Chapman Still Bothered by Injury; Probably Will Not Start at Corvallis ■ Oregon starts on the last lap of the conference journey tonight when she meets the Aggies on their own court. All pennant hopes have crashed to the ground via the in jury and sickness route, but the Lemon-Yellow can still tie for the second layer of the conference heap by hanging the Indian sign on the Beavers in tonight’s fray. In spite of the fact, that the local squad holds a pair of victories over the Orange team, the prospects of win ning the last games of the season are none ' too bright. A'ggie Hopes High Over at the sister institution, they are fairly confident of hack ing the props from ’neath the Ore gon platform and thus putting the Aggies on a par with the Huskies in the percentage column. Their hopes are not without rather valid reasons, it must bo said, for the Ags have been eating things up lately and on their own floor with their own rooters pulling for them to crawl up into the top berth of the conference, they will be a tough outfit for the crippled var sity to beat. Ridings, the sorrel-topped Aggie forward, has been off his feed for the last couple of days, but re ports yesterday indicated that he was back in trim and would be in first class shape for the Oregon tilt. Mose Lyman is now holding down the pivot position as a regu lar assignment and this frees Carlos Steele to take care of one of the guard berths. Students Flan to (Jo It is probable that Reinhart will start the same combination that went against the Cougars last Wednesday night with the possible exception that Chapman might be in Rockhey’s place. Chappy’s knee is still heavily bandaged and slows him lip considerably. It is a cinch that Reinhart will need all of the available offensive power to cop the long end of tonight’s fray. The last game of the season for both teams will be played tomorrow night, but it has no bearing on the conference standings whatever. It is probable that the Oregon rooting section will bo pretty well filled as many students have signified their intentions of going over for the game. Jack Benefiel, graduate manager, has a few reserved tickets for the game. These will be on sale at hia office up until noon today. STYLE BOOK PUBLISHED O. A. C. Compiles Pamphlet Con taining Rules for Newspapers Oregon Agricultural College—The most complete and carefully com piled style book ever attempted by a college daily has been published by the Daily Barometer, the Oregon Agricultural college newspaper.

SOPHOMORES PREFER EXAMS TO SHAVES AND COSMETICS Oberlin College—Oberlin college drug stores arc to suffer by a de cree passed recently by the members of the class of ’26, whten they voted to use no shaving cream, brushes or razors, nor any cosmetics during the period of the midyear examinations. The men of the sophomore class will not shave nor will the women of the class use powder or rouge during the week when the mid-year tests are ia progress.
