Abolishment of Doughnut
Program of Athletics
Argued Pro and Con
Views Given by Members
of Physical Education
Faculty Favor Changes
Much comment has arisen over
the spontaneous action taken by the
inter-fraternity council as to the
future of doughnut athletics, at its
meeting Wednesday evening. At
present, the prospects of any inter
fraternity competition are very
gloomy, unless the council modifies
its action. Baseball, track and
swimming are the major doughnut
events scheduled for the spring
quarter, which may be barred.
In deciding on this course, the
council stated as one of its main
reasons for the action that the
freshmen or students participating
in inter-fraternity competition were
seriously handicapped in grades by
the time given to these sports.
Instructor Defends Sports
Surprised at the attitude taken
by the council, Rudolph Fahl of
the department of physical educa
tion stated that it was his belief
that the grades received by dough
nut athletes surpassed those of the
“lounge-lizards,” or were on an
average with the majority of the
students on the campus. Inter
fraternity competition, he con
tinued, gave the minor athlete a
chance to enjoy athletic competi
tion; also, it stimulated these men
to receive a proper amount of
•exercise in a pleasing manner.
“Hank” Foster, also of the de
partment and in charge of doughnut
athletics, stated that he' was of the
opinion that the system of dough
nut sports was the backbone of
the largest universities in the
United States and that he was of
the belief that the present system
of inter-fraternity competition on
this campus might be modified, the
abolishment of plaques and trophies
and that no pressure be applied to
force fraternities to enter the
doughnut league.
Action Thought Hasty
A three-sport letterman in the
University expressed his opinion
that “Doughnut athletics is the
only opportunity offered the major
ity of fellows on the campus who
are not of varsity calibre, and the
program should be modified before
going to the extreme of abolishing
this form of competition.”
At present the doughnut leagues
of handball and wrestling will go
to a conclusion, but future doughnut
leagues are now in a very doubtful
position, with class competition
probably substituting fraternity
Men Feel Relieved
The general sentiment on the
campus among fraternity men was
one of relief that the matter- had
been decided. A number of parti
cipants in the various sports de
clared they had felt “driven” by
their houses into sports, but most of j
them favored some method where- i
by athletes for major sports could
be discovered.
Many of those who favored the
change held that the inter-frater
nity council had acted somewhat
hastily; that that action should not

were full of interest and kept the
fans on their toes. The bouts today
promise to be real exhibitions of

Le Foyer Francois to Give
Program of French Music
“Ici on parle Francais.”
Not only is “la langue Franeais”
spoken in Le Foyer Francais, the
French club of the University, but
no other tongue is tolerated at the
meetings held twice a month at the
Y. W. C. A. bungalow. A program
is presented after the business is
transacted and later games are
played—all in the language of the
Music, literature and the many
customs and manners of the people
of that country have provided much
interest lately, for often a professor
of the romance language depart
ment lectures. Sometimes towns
people, speakers of French, attend.
The club has a real purpose—that
of giving the students a chance to
ifte the French language outside of
class in a conversational way.
An evening of French music will
be presented by the club next Tues
day. Folk music, which is not so
familiar as the more formal music
of France, will be featured.
“By this program, it is hoped to
arouse an interest in French music,”
said Miss Lois G-ray, of the romance
language department. “It should
give a clearer idea of the folk songs
and national music of that most in
teresting country. French folk
music is unusually charming and is
not exceptionally well known.”

Program Given by School of
Music Students
A group of students in the school
of music furnished a program at
the student body gathering yester
day morning which was welcomed
enthusiastically by students as a
brief interruption in the pressure
of the work at the end of the term.
The business of the meeting con
sisted in the passing of two amend
ments, proposed by the forensic
council, to the by-laws of the A. S.
U. O. and short talks were given
by the debate and wrestling coaches
on spring activities.
The amendments passed provided
for a change in the size and style
of the gold “O,” awarded to mem
bers of the varsity debating team
and for the award of an “0” to
the manager of the team. Both
were passed without discussion after
their presentation by Walter Mal
colm, who explained the purpose of
changing the “O.” The reason for
this is that it will make the award
more distinctive and will standard
ize the pin by adding to it an in
scription of the word “forensic”
and the year in which it is won.
Mr. Malcolm also explained that
the members of the debating team
and forensic council feel that an
award is due the manager of the team
for his work is equal to that of the
Professor Hugh E. Eosson, debate
coach, announced the schedule of
contests for the rest of the year,
and Earl Widmer, wrestling coach,
was introduced by Claude Bobin
son, president of the A. S. U. O.,
wdio was in charge of the meeting.
Mr. Widmer’s remarks were fol
lowed by a varsity yell for the
members of the wrestling team who
are to meet O. A. C. this weekend.
The musical selections concluded
the program and consisted of sev
eral groups of stringed instruments
with piano and flute accompani
ments. The students who took part
in this program were Jane O ’Eeilly,
Gwendolen Lampshire, Katie Pot
ter, Beulah Clark, Nina Warnock,
Claire Collette, htary Burton, Jean
Harper and Delbert Moore.
Students Cannot Make Up Study by
Correspondence Course
Following the rule adopted by the
University before Christmas vaca
tion, no enrollment in correspon
dence study during spring vacation
will be allowed University students
who are registered on the campus.
Formerly, when the holidays were
longer, students were allowed to
make up work in this way, but, be
cause of the short length of time
given now, this plan is no longer
considered, said Dr. Dan E. Clark,

Statesman and Sociologist,
Oscar Jaszi, Formerly
in Cabinet of Karolyi
i __
Faculty Men Hear Talk at
Anchorage; Middle Europe
Described as Helpless
A distinguished Hungarian schol
ar, sociologist and liberal states
man of Karolyi’s cabinet, Prof.
Oscar Jaszi, is a visitor on the
campus today. Last evening, Pro
fessor Jaszi was given an informal
dinner at the Anchorage, and today
he is scheduled to speak twice to
students and all others interested.
He will give a lecture on the sub
ject, “Bed and White Bolshevism
in Hungary” at 10 a. m. in Yillard
hall, and at 2:15, in room 105, Com
merce building, he will deliver a
classroom lecture on “The Present
Crisis of European" Marxist Social
Hungarian Government Feudal
He described at dinner the prob
lem of Europe from the point of
view of the countries of the old
Austrian empire. He has no very
live hope that Europe can escape
a catastrophe. The best,chance hei
sees is in the development of eco
nomic federations. He regards the
present government of Hungary
with its feudal ideals as an ob
stacle. His hope is that somo con
ditions may be attached to the
forthcoming international loan to
Hungary that may make possible
a more liberal situation in that
country. In such a case, Hungary
might conceivably become the cen
ter of a Danubian confederacy.
He cannot see much encourage
ment in the League of Nations as
at presont constituted, but be
lieves that the entrance of America
might make possible the growth of
a new spirit in the league and in
Europe, by which war might be
avoided and European reconstruc
tion began.
Faints Dismal Picture
To every solution suggested he
sees almost insurmountable ob
stacles, and the picture he painted
was not an optimistic one.
Professor Jaszi, whose visit to the
campus is under the auspices of the
administration, was one of the most
active figures in the high-minded
but unfortunate Karolyi attempt to
establish liberalism in war-broken
“His mission at ’ the University
of Oregon and in America is to re
veal the meaning of this endeavor i
in th& hope of helping mold world
opinion to a recognition, on the one
hand, of the real character of the
White Regime that now holds Hun
gary in its iron grip, and on the
other hand, to marshal the assis
tance of world opinion to Hungary’s
better hopes and strivings,” said
Dean George Rebec, of the gradu
ate school, in commenting on tlie
sociologist’s purpose in coming to
this country.
Liberals Attempt Reforms
Professor Jaszi became a mem
ber of the liberal government es
tablished by Count Karolyi, when, j
at the end of the war, Hungary j
collapsed and the old feudal aristo
cratic regime, which represented
one of the most reactionary ays- I
terns in all Europe, was, for the !
moment, not only discredited, but '
Count Karolyi, though a man be
longing to the most ancient and
distinguished of Hungarian fami
lies, was, in his political and social
thinking, a liberal of a type similar
to that of the men who carried
through the first Russian revolution.
The aims of the new government
were to liberalize the political life
of Hungary by breaking down the
privileges and powers of the feudal
noblesse, establishing universal suf
frage, and in general purifying and
rendering responsible the organs
and processes of government.
Radicals Oppose Program
On the economic side, the pro
gram included, first, the breaking
down of the vast estates held by
the nobility, and parcelling the land
among the peasantry. Limitations
were to be put upon exploitation
of powers of finance and big busi
ness. Labor was to receive not
only security as to conditions of
employment, hours and health, but

Five Races Listed
Fresh distance and 220 men had
their tryouts yesterday to deter
mine who should compete in the
intor-class races Saturday. It was
necessary to run two heats to de
cido the 220 candidates and the
finals will be run this afternoon
at 2 o’clock.
The mile race was one of the
fastest run yet this season and
shows the first year men have ma
terial which can be developed into
real varsity timber in time. The
men who wjll represent the green
cappers in the four-mile relay Sat
urday are: Conley, Hunk, Button
and Hartwell.
Coach Hayward will pick four of
the following to represent the
yearling crew in the 880 relay:
Price, Clark, Extra, Flannigan,
Rodda and Giovando. Those to run
will be determined this afternoon.
Racing stock of the junior and
senior class has gone up by the ap
pearance on the cinder path of B.
Lucas an old letterman, whose
specialty is the 440. This will give
the upper-classmen a further ad
vantage; but the sophomore team
has a bunch of fighters who are de
termined to put up a real battle.
Saturday’s meet will start at 2:30
o’clock, with five races on the pro

and will be run off according to the
following schedule*: 440, four-mile,
one-mile, 880 and the two-mile race.

University of Washington
Gets 3 to 0 Decision and
Stanford Wins, 2 to 1
Varsity Maintains Should
Adopt; Northern School
Offers Strong Opposition
By Marian Lowry
Clinging to a single fact through
out their constructive speeches and
rebuttal, that compulsory jurisdic
tion was the only force that would
make tho world court an effective
'body, the Washington debaters
thrust an unexpected point into
their argument, and, rejecting any
answer, defeated Oregon affirmative
on an alternate plan, and won last
night’s contest by a 3 to 0 vote*.
A wire sent from Palo Alto said
Ilerschel Brown and Glenwood
Archer, Oregon’s negative, lost to
Stanford, 2-1.
The question up for contention
in the annual triangular contest
was, “Resolved, that the United
States should enter the permanent
Court of International Justice under
the plan laid down by the late
President Harding.”
Arguments Are Given
The Oregon man, Martin Moore
and Ernest Henrikson, built up their
arguments on the facts that the
present world court was in accord
ance with the United States’ past
policies and actions, and to enter
the world court now would be> only
the logical climax and fulfillment
of those policies; that America’s
entrance into the organization would
build up international law in its
development; that the United
States, by such an action, would
consistently bring the world peace
which it has so long advocated;
that if the United States did not
enter the world court, the logical
progress towards world peace would
be retarded; and that America, to
insure future prosperity both for
herself and for the world in gen
eral, must enter the world court.
The Oregon men attacked the
issue of the Washington debaters
on the grounds that the time had
not come for compulsory jurisdic
tion, as the idea of a world court
is now, and to use compulsory juris
diction as a force would only an
tagonize nations to war, rather than
to urge them to seek peace; and
that the American public and Sen
ate would never accept a policy
which would force nations to pre
sent their disputes before world ar
Plan Claimed Futile
The Washington team, composed
of Harold Morford and Lawrence
Seltzer, in its contention, admitted
the affirmative’s views, then played
up the point that the United
States could probably aid the> world
court more by staying out, thus
working on the principle that
America’s rejection would be an in
centive for the world to come to
peace sooner. The first Washing
ton speaker, Harold Morford, based
his constructive talk on the fact
that the court was not functioning,
could not funtion, and never would
funtion, because it had had no

School for Scandal, Sheridan9s
Satire,Has Successful Showing
By Patricia Novlan Byrne
The premiere of the “School for
Scandal,” Sheridan’s brilliant satire
ion the people of the later eighteenth
century, given at Guild hall last
night by the junior and senior com
panies, was a very worthy one and
in some respects a remarkable one.
The most insignificant of the char
acters were played with sincerity.
The play itself is a delight and is
noteworthy for its brilliant literary
execution. The interpretation had
all tho inconsequential effervesence
that Sheridan wrote into his amusing

Peter Teazle as the natural, polished,
serious and generally refined char
acter that ho is, but there were hints
I of a senility which was unfair to
that fine man of a little over fifty.
Lady Teazle’s part demands a
charming personality, vivacity and
good diction, all of which was given
it by Elizabeth Robinson, plus a treat
to the eye which Miss Robinson fur
nished. We might hope for just a
little more spontaneity, but that is
