Grades for Winter Term'
Given Out by Registrar;
New System Is in Use
WOMEN’S HOUSES LEAD
Friendly Hall Highest of
Men’s Group, Holding
Twelfth Place on List
Delta Omega wins first honors m
grades for the winter term under
the new system of compiling house
averages. Kappa Alpha Theta is m
second place and Alpha Delta Pi «
third. The ratings of these tree
houses are respectively 47.80, 47.10,
46 42. The first 11 on the list are
women’s houses. Friendly hall is
the highest of the men’s organiza
tions, Psi Kappa, second, and PM
Sigma Pij third.
, Method Is NefW
Dor the first time, the house
ratings in grades have been com
piled under the new system in
stalled the. latter part of the winter
term In order to arrive at the rat
ing, the grading system is reversed
from the old method, so that an
hour of I counts 5 points, an hour
of II counts 4 points, an hour oi
III counts 3, an hour of IV counts
2, and an hour of V counts 1 point.
In other words, the number of
points given to a credit-hour is a -
ways equal to six minus the grade.
No account, however, is taken ot
hours not passed, whether with
drawns, ineompletes, or failures.
In the column devoted to the.
average grade of hours passed, this
would not necessarily be the aver
age that an organization would
make under the old system, for this
new system of rating does not
take into account the hours of fai -
ure that a house may have.
Iu the averages for fall term,
Kappa Alpha Theta headed the list,
with Delta Omega second.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY
WILL NOT BE GIVEN
Owing to the fact that not
•enough interest was shown -by the
senior class, the customary senior
play has been called off, announced
Ted Baker, manager
The committee of Mask and Bus
kin directing the play extended
the tryouts to arouse more interest
but only 12 people turned out for
a east of sixteen. It was found im
possible to pick the cast from this
number. The play calls for eight
men, and only seven men were
present at tryouts.
“It Pays to Advertise” was the
play which had been chosen to be
given. -It is a clever farce of mod
em American business life.

Special Music Planned
All houses entering floats in the
canoe fete must turn in the name
of the float to Rupert’ Bullivant by
Friday of this week, April 25. Ed
Tapfer, Junior Week-end chairman,
states that this list must be com
plete by Friday in order to make
certain the program order.
There will be extra bleachers for

make an early application to him
in order to secure places. An in
vitation will be issued to the
townspeople to attend the canoe
Spotlights Are Secured
Three theater spotlights have been
secured for the purpose of lighting
the canoes. This will insure a
standard lighting system. These
lights will be adequate to show
off the varied colors of the floats
to best advantage, and will concen
trate all the light on the float it
self. The race will be illuminated
under water by green and yellow
lights. Thus the scene will present
a truly holiday atmosphere, the
“Try to make your floats simple
but effective,” is Ed Tapfer’s ad

crowd too much into your picture.
The best floats are those which are
not too elaborate and are appro
priate to the scene.
Dean Permits Dances
The committee is working at
present to secure musical numbers
to be given before the floats ap
pear and at intervals during the
fete. Last year the men’s glee club
quartet gave several numbers be

to take up the time after the canoe
fete. If any house desires to give
a house dance or stage a street
dance after the fete, with its part

other house, it may do so. Dean
Virginia Judy Esterly has given her

Rebec, Home from Tour, Tells
of Graduate Exchange Idea
Comparisons that reflect favorably
for the University of Oregon gradu
ate school were made by Dr. George
Kebec, dean of the graduate school,
'following his return from a tour that
included the greater part of the uni
versities and colleges on the - Pacific
coast. Dr. Rebec has been absent
since the beginning of the spring
term, and has traveled from Moscow,
Idaho, to Berkeley, California.
While Dr. Rebec’s trip was primar
ily for the purpose of interesting oth
er institutions and their students in
the University of Oregon’s higher
fields of research and learning, he
availed himself of the opportunity of
studying and analyzing other gradu
ate schools and systems.
In only one place, the University
of California, did Dr. Rebec find con
ditions which might suggest chances
of change or betterment in the Ore
gon school. For the greater part,
graduate schools and departments are
in the organization or projective
As a forerunner of his visit to oth
er institutions, Dr. Rebec visited the
University of Oregon school of medi
cine in Portland where graduate work
is developing rapidly. Dr. Rebec re
ports that while at this branch of the
University, he sensed a desire, both
on the part of the faculty and the
students, for a closer relationship be
tween the school of medicine and the
[University proper. The old spirit of
aloofness aiyl the desire for isolation
is becoming or has become a thing
cf the past, be thinks.

CHANGES ARE MADE
IN EMERALD STAFF
Margaret Morrison to be
New Sunday Editor
Margaret Morrison, who has been
a member of the staff of daily edi
tors of the Emerald, and has regu
larly edited tho Sunday edition, has
been appointed Sunday editor by Ar
thur Rudd, editor, after a conference
with the editorial board.
The appointment is made in con
sideration of the - development of the
Sunday paper this year, which has
been due largely to Miss Morrison’s
efforts. When first attempted ono
year ago, the idea was entirely now
among colleges on the Pacific coast,
and has been a college paper experi
ment of considerable interest.
This will in no way effect the ed
itorials or policy of the Sunday Em
erald, which will be handled by the
daily, as heretofor.
Ed Miller will be day editor of the
Saturday issue, taking the place of
Leon Byrne, who is now doing part
time correspondence work for a Port
land paper. Byrne will continue to
write, however, and will be on the
upper news staff.
Frances Sanford, who has been on
the news staff for two years, has been
promoted to tho upper staff. Miss
Sanford has been working on foren
sic and business administration beats.
Sol Abramson is placed on the news
George Belknap, a member of the
i staff, has resigned his position as
night editor on the Sunday issue.
SLOWLY, SAYS EDITOR
Lyle Janz, editor of the feature
section of the Oregana, is expected
to return today from Oregon City
where he has been reading the proof
and supervising the makeup of his
section for the past two days.
Work on the year book is progress
ing slowly, according to Freda Good
rich, editor-in-chiof. Part of the ma
terial is being bound at present and
the rest is being printed. Tho book
will be out about the middle of May.
A few subscriptions have been com
ing in lately and any others will be
accepted until the end of this week.

lecture. After next Tuesday the
various divisions will meet on their
regular days with Dr. John Bovard

Whitman Ball Team Touted
to Win from All Records
in Pre-season Conflicts
NEW FIELD TO BE USED
Oregon Lacks Experience
of Early Contests, But
Has Fast Veteran Crew
The varsity baseball squad ia get
tijig in its last licks before the open
ing of the conference season. To
morrow Bill Reinhart will send his
tossers against tho strbngly-tonted
nine from Whitman college, in the
first collegiate game of the season.
The initial tussle for the Oregon
tossers will also be the first battle
to bo staged on the new University
baseball diamond near Hayward field.
The field is practically completed and
will be used for the game if the
ground can bo rolled and hnrdoned a
littlo more. Tho squad started their
practice thcro last night but the play
ers found tho ground too spongy and
vacated it for the old diamond near
C emetery Ridge. The new field will
be worked on today and all possible
means taken to get it in shape for
the gamo tomorrow. >
Seven Veterans Left
Tomorrow’s contest finds Oregon
sadly outpointed as far as dope is
concerned. With no pre-soason games
behind them except a nine-inning bur
lesque with the alumni and a couple
of tilts with tho fresh, Reinhart's
proteges are far from being in the
best of shapo to battle the experienced
Missionaries. The only veterans on
the squad are Wright and Sorsby,
outfielders; Latham and Boss, in
fielders; Cook, catcher, and Brooks
and Ringle, pitchers. The rest of
the nine will be composed of former
freshmen tossers and new men.
However, the showing made in the
game with tho freshmen last Satur
ilay may promise something besides
a gloomy outlook,
Tim Sausser in the box showed
moro control and better delivery
than any previous time during the
practico season and tho team behind
him performed in a fashion that gives
promise of a nine that will scrap, at
least. Wright, Sorsby, and Ferrel in
tho outer gardens gave most satis
factory accounts of themselves as far
as fielding is concerned. Likewise
they managed to nick the frosh twirl!
ers tor several hits.
Infielders Are Fast
I" the infield Hunk Latham hand
led tho first base position in fine
style, while Captain Jimmy Boss at
second, Bill Bittner at short, and
Hobson at the hot corner all did cred
itable work, considering the lack of
practice. This quartet will doubtless
start tho game tomorrow, although
Sam Cook may take a turn at the
first base job during the melee since
Latham may be used either at first,
third base or on the mound.
The catching trio of Orr, Blisa and
Cook have all been showing up well
in practice and it is hard to say
which one will be used the most. Thus
far Sausser and Brooks seem to be
showing up the best among the hurl
ers and it is likely that one of them
will open tho season.
Hard Game Expected
Nearly everyone who got into tho
games with the frosh hit the yearling
pitchers hard. Just how they will
perform against the Whitman fling
ers is problematical. That the Mis
sionaries have a formidable team is
evidenced from the fact that they won
eight out of a total of nine pre-season
games. Last Thursday and Friday
they held the strong Washington
team to close scores in two games,
although they lost them both. The
varsity will have to play good base
ball to beat them.
Y. W. BUSINESS MEETING
IS POSTPONED FOB WEEK
The usual weekly business meet
ing of tho University Y. W. C. A.
cabinet and council group will not
be hold today. Florence Buck,
president of the association, an
nounced yesterday. The meeting haa
been postponed because of the an
nual spring tea-room of the Y. W.
C. A., which is being held today
and because so many members of
the group will be active with tha
Student Union drive.
