ment are Joe Frazer and Walter
Malcolm. Both men have been very

The California team will consist
of Harold Cherniss and Raymond
Sanders, both juniors in the Cali
fornia institution. These men have
had considerable debating experi
ence, Sanders having been on the
Idaho intercollegiate team. This is
their first intercollegiate meet in
California, however, but they have
had extensive debating experience
in squad competition, as members
of the Congress Debating society of
the University of California. Both
men have been selected from open

Preparations have been made for
a limited number of persons to lis

Various Spring Games
Tod*v, in the women’s gymna
sium classes, there will be a vote
taken to ascertain the popularity
of the various spring sports offered
by the physical education depart
ment. By this means, the games
liked best by the girls will be found,
and a schedule can be arranged to
accommodate the majority.
There are 10 sports offered and
each girl is to give her first and
second choice. They are archery,

probably be able to be on the cam
pus again by Monday.

Dates Before Tea
The Big Sister committee of
the Women’s league is revising

ways been very well attended.
Genevieve Phelps is chairman of
the committee in charge, and
Mary Jane Hathaway and Kathe

Education First Fostered
by Early Settlers
Oregon students and Oregon
graduates can exercise the influ
ence needed to give the University
the facilities to carry on the pro
gram of education and character
building begun by the pioneers
when they faced the dangers of
the unsettled West, believes Fred
Hockley, special writer of the Ore
gon Journal, who spoke at assem
bly yesterday.
“Do you ever stop to think what
it meant to the early settlers of the
Oregon country to establish schools
for their children?” he asked. “It
meant that these hardy old pioneers
were willing to make the utmost
sacrifices that their children might
have the advantages of the best
that was to be offered in the field
of education. 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
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, 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.”
Yearling Track Team to be
Chosen by Competition;
Relays Come March 8
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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Debater in First
I | Contest by Radio j
i O--—
tOJ.1 1
Walter Malcolm
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.
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.
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.
Pennant Hopes Crushed But
Second Conference Place
Is Still Within Reach
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.
