MEET PUT OFF
Men Urged to Take Training
j; Work More Seriously
HARD SCHEDULE AHEAD
Washington Relay Carnival
Comes This Month
The track meet scheduled at 2:30
o’clock today has been called off by i
Coach Hayward because of the funer
al of Ronald Reid.
The relay carnival at the University;
of Washington is less than a month;
away, and it is necessary, claims Coach
Hayward, for the men to take their!
training work seriously if they expect,
to make a creditable showing at the |
Oregon will probably be represented
at Seattle by two relay teams and one (
entrant in the pentathlon. This will
mean that at least nine men will have
an opportunity to make the first trip
away from the local field. Bill plans
to enter teams in the mile and two
mile relays. This means four quarter
and four half milers must be developed
by May 3.
Medley Bace Added
To the usual list of class A events
making up a relay carnival, the com
mittee this year, at the request of sev
eral schools, has added a medley race.
This race is run by a team of four
men, one running 220 yards, one 440,
one 880 and one 1320 yards.
Reports of other track meets and
from other track coaches demonstrates
the fact that Oregon will be up against
unusually hard competition this year
in several events. O. A. C. track fol
lowers are jubilant at the return of
Ray Dodge, who is a distance man and
a prospective Olympic team runner.
From Washington State comes word of
“Truck” Davis, an all around man in
the field events and whose specialty
is putting.the shot and heaving the
Hartranft is Star
Then there is one man who will
undoubtedly cause the shot-putters of
the countries that anticipate winning
the bullet heaving contest at Paris
this summer some worry. That is
Hartranft of Stanford. The person
who, last Saturday, in an exhibition,
flung the 16 pound- lead pellet four
inches past the world’s record mark;
only to be disqualified for stepping
over the line. He also heaves the
discus close to the worlds record di
Still, Oregon has Tuck and Spear
ow, both masters in their line, and
both working hard this spring. Tuck’s
knee is still being treated, but there
is hope that he will be in shape to
break another record with the jav
elin this spring, nevertheless. There
are several others who are showing up
among those trying for the team as
sure point winners this spring, and
as men who will give a real account
of themselves when the real battles

to the architectural composition.
Around this Court, it is proposed
to group studio and class room

secondary courts to the east and

Memorial Court, separated only by

around the Memorial Court, with
the minor halls for drama and
music, and the main auditorium will
take place the activities of the Uni

expression. The stage, equipped for
large theatrical and operatic pro

organ, will be a gathering place for
the music and art lovers of the
In architecture, the combination
of red brick and buff trim, which
has already been expressed in the
buildings for Law and Commerce,
will be maintained, with an ever
increasing proportion of the buff
note, until, in the facade of the
Auditorium, the red of the brick
gives place to the lighter buff of
the columns and wall surfaces.
The architectural style is free,
but is influenced by the brick archi-!
teclure of Lombardy and the Greco
Byzantine notes of detail.
Georgian Note Adopted
The Georgian note, which has i
been adopted in the Women’s
Quadrangle and the Woman’s build

“We shall also plan to continue

Aspirin Tablet Will Revive
Cut and Wilted Plants
Professors Tanner and Sweetser
Explain Chemical Action
Cut flowers may be prevented from
fading and wilted ones may be re
vived by giving them an aspirin tab
let, according to an Eastern pharma
In one of his experiments drugged
blooms outlasted normal ones by three
days. In another case wilted flowers
jwere revived in two hours, looking as
fresh as they did when picked.
The experimenter’s explanation is
that the aspirin, placed in the water,
acts as an antiseptic, interfering with
the enzyme which normally causes
the clogging of the vessels of the
stem at its cut surface.
Prof. H. G. Tanner, of the chem
istry department, explains that drugs
which tend to make animals uncon
scious have the opposite effect on
plants and for this reason the results
of the experiment seem logical.
Professor A. B. Sweetser, of the
botany department, holds the same
view, but hopes further that the ex
perimenter might find some method
of preserving the natural color of i
pressed flowers either by aspirin or
by any other means.
Superintendent of grounds H. M.
Fisher is highly interested in the ex
periment and promises to find out
for himself if it will work, although
the idea seems practical to him.
