Veteran Track Man Will Not

for Two-mile Contest
Oregon track followers will be
sorry to learn that Arthur Tuck
has been forced to withdraw from
school, because of outside condi
tions, over which he has no control.
This places Coach Hayward in a
bad way, for he had been banking
on Tuck to win two or three firsts
in the weight events. It is late
now to develop new material cap
able of taking his place.
At last night’s tryouts, Coach
Hayward decided that the varsity
h'alf-milers compose a relay team
which should have an opportunity
to compete in the meet at Seattle.
By the process of elimination in
one of the fastest half-mile exhibi
tions run this year, McCune, Gerke,
Mauney, and Keating were selected
to go. Humphrey lost by a small

The 440 tryouts for the fourth
place on the mile team was another

Ben Lucas bunched close behind.
Risley, Kinney, and Rosebraugh
won the first three places by their
showing in the inter-class contests
Saturday. By sending these quar

not only will be able to enter the

The mile relay men will run a

There will be but one more

“The Educational Function of
I>ramatics,” is the title-of an ar
ticle by Prof. C. D. Thorpe, of the
English department, which appeared
in the April number of the Quarterly
Journal of Speech Education.
The article was originally writ
ten for the program of the National
Educational association in San Fran
cisco, last summer.
The points particularly stressed in
the topic are, that dramatics furnish
the best means of the study of liter
ature, and that amateur dramatics
mean preparation for successful liv
“Dramatics provide drill in the
good habits of speech,” the article
states, “training in mental and phy
sical coordination, cultural activity,
and social and moral influence, and
preparation for well spent leisure.

Will Oppose Ruth Akers for Secretaryship
By Arthur S. Rudd
This office was an interesting place last night. Rather be
wildered-looking candidates were trotted up by worried self
appointed “campaign managers.” Qualifications were pre
sented in rapid-fire order by brusque young promoters, as the
candidate stood, perhaps a little self-consciously, in the back
The campus waited a long time before it began talking
politics: but when it got started—and it did not really get well
started until yesterady—how the candidates did pour in!
Interest in the race for student presidency held through from
the first. It was not until 8:30 last night that friends of Ran
dall Jones came forward with the announcement that he would
oppose Clyde Zollars, who entered the race yesterday.
Jones will draw his strength from
the fact that he is an old and experi
enced head in executive work and his
four years on the campus have givon
him an acquaintance and a reputa
tion for efficiency which will stand
him in good stead in the coming week.
The rado for vire-presidoncy came
into promincnle yesterday, too. Ed
ward Sox, who is a transfer from
Albany college this year, and a junior
in law, came forward as a possible
running mate for Zollars or Jones.
His entrance was not a surprise. The
entrance of Milton Brown early last
evening, threw a bomb, however, into
the speculations of the swarm of
evanescent politicians that have gath
ered on the campus this week. Ho
too, seeks the vice-presidency, as does
Hesden Metcalf, who announced yes

titles a student entrance into the

Another matter to bo discussed
at today’s meeting is the policy of
the organization regarding the ap
plications of other institutions for
chapters in Phi Beta Kappa.
Different divisions of the public
school Girls’ Iteserve corps united
in giving a mother and daughter
banquet last night at the Christian
church. Miss Helen Price, national
secretary of the organization in
the Northwest region, spoke at the
affair. The reserve work is a part
of the community work done by
University students. Girls who are
advisors for groups are: Elizabeth
Phelps, Winifred Andrews, Thelma

Easterbrook, and Bernice Basor.
was talked as a possible opponent of
Ruth Akergj the first woman in the
race, came out for the position of
senior woman in the executive coun
cil. This left the opposition field to
Mary Jane Hathaway, another out
standing junior woman, who came out
last night for the much-desired posi
tion of secretary. This puts two ex
ceedingly strong candidates against
each other, for both Miss Akers and
Miss Hathaway have many friends
and their possibilities are unques
tioned. The more than usual ac
tivity and interest of the woman this
year will make this contest one of the
best on the ballot.
Junior Man Race Interests
The important two-year job of
junior man on the executive council
attracted two well-known sophomores,
Rodney Keating and Ken Stephenson.
Moth of these men have plenty of
backing, and the race will be a warm
one. Humor has it that a third man,
a well-known athlete, will announce
his candidacy today.
Mary Skinner is not the only
woman to announce for the senior
seat on the executive council. Jnlia
Raymond is also out, and the race
will probably go according to who
gets the benefit of certain party splits
that are bound to take place.
Four Out for Senior
Four men came out for senior
places on the student council. Three
seats are vacant, and the men who
have thus far signified their inten
tions of running are Gordon Wilson,
Bert Gooding, Ed Miller and Elam
Martha Shull and Laverna Spitz
enberger will be opposed by Margaret
McGowan and Marie Myers in tha con
test for senior woman on the student
council. There are two places to be
filled, however.
Two junior men and and one junior
woman are to be elected for student
council places. Paul Ager is out, but
has no running mate to fill the other
place on the ballot. Mary Brandt is
one candidate for junior woman on
tlie lower legislative body, and Mil
dred Bateman is the other.
The tradition that early campus ac
tivity of a public nature kills an un
derclassman politically has evidently
frightened most groups from pushing
their freshmen into the political swim.
To date Lauren Conley is the only
man to make a bid for the place of
sophomore man on the student coun
