Outcome of Contest
on Beaver Campus
Many Errors Made
Aggies Run Wild in
Eighth and Establish
the Winning Margin
The Aggies triumphed over Rein
hart’s varsity nine again yester
day, when they pounded Latham
for a total of 14 hits, three of them
home runs, in the second game of
the series. Terrific hitting on the
part of Sigrist, Aggie left fielder,
and Escalier, middle gardener, aid
ed by eight varsity errors enabled
the Corvallis contingent to walk
away with the long end of a 14-11
Oregon managed to hit Ed Cole
man of the Aggies for nine safe
ones and threatened the Beavers
continually, but their fielding was
of poor order at critical moments.
O. A. C. batted around in the
fifth and eighth innings, scoring
five runs in each canto. The big
innings for the varsity were the
seventh, when they romped across
the plate five times, and again in
the ninth, when they scored four.
Hobson drove out a home run with
the bags loaded in the seventh,
making the count 7-8 for the Ag
gies, but the Aggies ran wild in
the eighth. After that they were
never in serious danger.
Aggies Have Six Runs
The slugging Sigrist was respon
sible for six of the Aggies’ runs.
Two home runs and a three-bagger
was his total for the day. Escalier
also came across with a circuit
clout in the sixth. In the next
inning his hard-hit ball went
through King’s legs for another
four-base swat.
Reinhart’s tossers had the bases
populated twice in the first five
innings, but failed to score. Cole
man was as wild as the proverbial
hare of March in the early innings,
but his support was faultless and
the varsity gained nothing by their
free transportation. Altogether the
big boy walked nine men during
the fracas. It was the difference
in fielding that accounted for the
defeat, the Aggie defens^ pre
venting many hits by brilliant
catches. Hobson was the only Ore
gon sticker who was able to con
nect with Coleman’s delivery suc
cessfully. He secured three hits in
five times up, one of them a home
run. Bliss bagged two bingles in
five up. The score:

Mother’s Day—the Time
of Remembrances
A frail, gray-haired lady, sat be
side the window sewing. Every few
minutes she paused to anxiously scan
the street in both directions.
“What is it you are expecting?”
I asked.
“Tomorrow is Mother’s day, you
know,” she said tremulously, “and
I haven’t heard from my son yet.
He never has forgotten me before.”
“But there is time yet.”
“Yes, I know,” she replied, “but
I’m always afraid he’ll forget me.
He’s been away so long. It’s been
10 years since he left for Chicago and
he has never forgotten me yet, but
I’m afraid he might this year. He
was married last fall and he—he may
not remember now.”
“Hot that I didn’t want him to be
married,” she added hastily. “I
haven’t seen her, but I know the girl
!he married would be as lovely as her
picture.” She gazed fondly at a
double picture of a handsome man
and frank, eager-faced girl, for a
second and then resumed her mending
and watching.
Dusk fpll and she rose and turned
on the lights. She looked more pa
thetic than ever, sitting under the
rose-shaded floor lamp.
'‘You don’t know how much it
means to me every year,” she said,
stifling a deep sigh. “I am so proud
jf him, and it snows me that he
still thinks of me, enough to remem
ber the date.”
“I know it’s foolish but—.” The
doorbell rang, she hastened to answer
it, and was greeted with a huge bou
quet of crimson tulips—red for a liv
ing mother, from a son, who though
many years had passed, did not for
Work on Music
Hall to Start
Work to complete the auditorium
of the University Music building
will start at once as a result of
the action taken at the meeting of
the building committee of the Uni
versity board of regents, yesterday
afternoon. It is expected to have
the room done by the beginning of
next fall term.
In the contract let„for the com
pletion of the auditorium was in
cluded provisions for the construc
tion of a sun-porch along the south
side, thus giving a passage way
from the dressing rooms to the
stage; and the building of the
necessary chambers for the .pipe
organ, which was anonymously pre
sented to the University during
the latter part of the spring term
last year. It is understood that
the pipe organ will be installed as
soon as the auditorium, is suffici
ently completed.
The work on the auditorium is
being done through the medium of
the University Holding company,
whieh is leasing the property to
the University. At the end of the
lease in 1928 the property will
come into the possession of the
The auditorium, when completed,
will be capable of seating approxi
mately 600 persons. The teaching
and practice rooms and other parts
of the Music building were com
pleted in 1921.
Other business completed at the
meeting of the building committee
yesterday included several items
providing for the fire protection of
the campus. The committee pro
vided for the laying of several
largo water mains on the campus,
for the installing of hydrants, for
the installing of fire doors and fire
escapes and sprinkling systems in
some of the campus buildings.
The committee also provided that
a lift be installed in the stack
rooms of the library to facilitate
the moving of books from one
floor to another. The lift will be
installed in the elevator space al
ready built in the library.
Mrs. George T. Gerlinger and
Fred Fisk compose the committee.
The late Charles Fisher was
chairman of the committee.

Freshman Nine
Win First Game
Four Pitchers Used;
Score 15-10
The freshman nine won the
opening ball game of the season
yesterday from the Washington
high team of Portland by a 15 to
10 count. Some timely hitting in
the seventh, some poor headwork
on the part of the visitors and a
change in pitchers enabled the first
year nine to drag a game out of
the fire, which had been hopelessly
lost up to this juncture.
Washington established a lead in
the first three innings which they
looked capable of holding. Some
erratic fielding and a few plays,
which might register mirth in a
farce comedy, enabled the first
year nine to creep up on their op
ponents. In the seventh, with three
men on bases, doach Jenne sent
Mitts into the box to relieve Brad
ley, who had been pitching great
ball up until this time. The greedy
yearlings hopped on the young
ster 's benders and chased enough
runs over to salt the game away.
Had the visitors accorded Bradley
the right kind of support, it was a
Portland victory. The youngster
started right by whiffing the three
men who faced him.
In the seventh, Dallas, frosh
third sacker, nicked a home run
with the bases full. In the second
Kiminki converted a Washington
error into a home run. In the
fourth, Reinhart clanged the gong
for a four-ply bingle, with one man
on base, and in the same canto
Gabriel, visiting catcher, executed
the same performance.
Foster used four pitchers, three
of them in the last two innings.
The visitors secured a number of
runs off Adolph, and Lee went in
and pitched good ball, striking out
eight high schoolers. Adolph re
tired four of the visitors this way.

A Line o’ Verse
When we were taking high
school English, we, like all high
school students, had to learn reams
of poetry. It was poured into us
by the conscientious prof, and we,
in turn, poured it out at the end
of the month. One particular poem,
because of the sheer beauty of it,
stuck in our minds, and we hereby
print it. Perhaps some of our con
temporaries will recall the lines.
On passing a field of new-mown
hay in the early June evening—
Yesterday’s flowers am I,
And I have drunk my last sweet
draught of dew.
Young maidens came and sang me
to my death,
The moon looked down and saw
me in my shroud,
The shroud of my last dew.
Yesterday’s flowers, that are still
in me
Must needs make way for all to
morrow’s flowers.
The maidens, too, that sang me to
my death
Must, even so, make way for all
the maids that are to come.
Yet will my perfume-laden soul
bring back
As a sweet memory to women’s
Their days of maiden-hood.
And then they will be sorry that
they came
And sang me to my death.
And all the butterflys will mourn
for me;
I bear away with me, the sun
shine ’s dear remembrance,
And the low, soft murmurs of the
My breath is sweet as children’s
prattle is.
I drink in all the whole earth’s
And make of it the fragrance of
my soul
That shall out-live my death.
Behind soft draperies of purple
mist, rose-veiled,
The Sun God, garbed in liquid
Sinks into a gold-plated sea.
Zephyrs, soft as rare ermine
Or the down on baby eyelids,
Play among the flowers too
sleepy to heed them.
The blue pines stir restlessly,
Disturbed in their eternal medi
By the sleep-cry of fretful
One pale star nestles
In it’s bed of mauve and azure;
Then silence—it is night.
University of Nebraska—More

Passing of G. Stanley Hall,
Intellectual Leader
By B. A.
G. Stanley Hall is dead. To
many this statement will be of no
particular significance, but to edu
cators, psychologists and students
throughout the country, it marks
the passing of a great intellectual
leader and it means a loss to
American education.
For nearly fifty years G. Stanley
Hall stood in the foreground of
intellectual progress, acting as
president of Clark university and
at the same time contributing
hundreds of essays, leetures and
books to the discussion of impor
tant problems.
His works covered a variety of
subjects, but he was most inter
ested in psychology and education.
In 18S2 he established the first
laboratory for experimental psy
chology in the United States at
John Hopkins university. He had
as students such men as Dewey,
Cattell, and Jastrow.
In this same year he started the
American Journal of Psychology,
the first journal devoted to the
subject, and he remained as editor
till 1921.
In 1888 he founded Clark univer
sity, the first solely graduate re
search institute in America. He

Over the Coffee Cups
a Deep Tragedy
By C. N. E.
Over the coffee cups and ’mid a
carol of bluish smoke Aeschylus, Dr.
Johnson, Saint Paul and William
Shakespeare chattered. In ono of the
“Inns of Campus” the group of four
talked and argued while the life of
the modern college flowed and swirled
noisily around them.
The problem was a deep one—that
of tragedy. Dr. Johnson was tolling
his companions of his over-hearing
a young student, only that very af
ternoon, referring to this some prob
lem as the merging of the subjective
and the objective, to create tragedy.
The doctor snorted.
Aeschylus smiled. William Shakes
peare took up the cudgels against the
good doctor.
“Well, I’m not so sure, Doetor.
Where lies the tragedy of Oedipus, of
Socrates and of Lear?”
“Why, I should sny essentially in
the fact that when justice for the
terrible crime must be meted, thero
is no judge and no guilty.”
“Not at all, Doctor,” said Shakes
peare, drawing on his good cigar (he
had learned the trick ‘from Walter
Raleigh). “Not at all. The tragedy
as I see it lies in the fact that tho
crime occurred and not in what the
tragic hero Oedipus thought about
it or did about it.”
“Certainly,” said Aeschylus blow
ing the cigarette smoke high toward
the ceiling and arranging the grecian
folds of his gown carefully, “certain
ly 1 Tho tragedy of our beloved
friend Socrates, for instance is not
that he drank the hemlock, but that
he was endowed with tho type of
mind which would ultimately have
forced him to drink it.”

Oregon Authors
Hold Sessions
Modern Literature Is
Topic of Speaker
“Modernism” in contemporary lit
erature was presented in various
phases and interpretations by the at
tendants of the second annual Oregon
Authors’ conference which, held sway
on the University campus yesterday
afternoon. Several recognized Oregon
authorities on this subject presented
their views and observations gleaned
from a series of years of intimate
contact with students and professors
of literature.
After the luncheon, held at the An
chorage in honor of the visiting
scribes, members of the University
faculty, together with students and
others interested in this branch of
learning, resorted to the Alumni hall,
to hear the discussion of the preva
lent attitude of people in general and
students in particular, towards lit
erature and learning. The speakers
at this gathering were Prof. Victor
O. L. Chittick, of Reed college; and
Professors Herbert Crombie Howe
and Kimball Young of the University
f Oregon.
Later in the evening a banquet was
given in the Woman’s building, and
addresses were made by different vis
iting authors. President Campbell,
who was scheduled to extend the ad
dress of welcome to the authors, was
not able to attend and Eric Allen
gave a short talk in his stead.
After the banquet, the writers at
tended the Junior Vod-vil and later,
the men held a smoker in the College
Side Inn.

Varsity Men
Win 5 Points
The varsity relay teams competing
at Seattle took a second in tho mile
race and a third in the two mile
event against the colleges of the
northwest. This was the opening of
the track struggles for tho northern
season and gives tho first indications
of the material of the various schools.
Next Saturday there will be a dual
meet at Eugene with the University
of Washington.
The quartor mile team was com
posed of Eisley, Rosebraugh, Kinney
and Hermance. The half milers who
matte the trip are: McCune, Keating,
Mauney and Gerke. Those wove the
only teams making the northorn trip.
With a crew of runners, some work
ing out of their places, but fighting
like Oregon men should fight, the
freshman relay artists lost their bat
tle with the O. A. C. carnival per
formers by a 10 to 15 scoro. The
sprinters won their events, but the
two distance races and the medley
wero lost.
Westerman, Extra, Stonebraker and
Holt form a quartet of sprint men
that are hard to beat; Flannigan also
developed an unexplecited burst >)f
speed and more than did his share in
the winning of the 880; his favorite
event being the broad jump. ,1 of fries
and Swank both ran two races and
worked well. Jeffries ran the 410 and
the 880; Swank performed in his reg
ular event, the 440, and then step
ped out and ran the mile in the med
ley, which is not his race at all, and
did it well. Rodda also ran out his
regular event and fought a game race.

Junior Vodvil
Acts Varied
“Captain Jacqueline**
Has Clever Leads
and Catchy Songs
Violin Skit Pleases
‘Bobby,’ One-act Farce
Pleasant Poke at
Sentimentalists’ Love
By Leon Bryne
Are you an aesthete, a child of
jazz, or just an average studentf
If you are the first, you would
probably rate the Varsity Violin
ists” of last night’s Junior Vod-vil
the best number on the program;
if you side with the exponents of
modernism, you would undoubtedly
pronounce the Griffith-Green act
supreme entertainment, and if yon
are one of the many, you probably
clapped loudest and longest for the
nonsensical “Nothings.”
As a whole, the show was super
ior to the average run of Western
vaudeville, while some of the acta
approached professionalism in their
excellence. What was the beat
act of the show? The more the
writer sees of theatricals, the more
apparent becomes the fallacy of an
individual labeling a production
good, bad or indifferent. What
amuses one bores another.
First Number Good
The Vod-vil was opened by a
character dance by Laverna Spit
zenberger and Mildred Le Compte,
who, in the costumes of rag dolls,
flopped through the contortions of
a rag dance. Their actions had all
the care-free abandon of young
jellyfish. As the second part of
this act, a stageful of girls from
Thacher cottago executed a group
dance which they called “Peppy
Patters.” The noteworthy feature
of this act was the fact that so
many girls of presentable appear
ance were to be found in one liv
ing organization.
As the second act of the evening,
the “Mid-Nite Sons” entertained
with various musical selections. For
a part of thiB act Johnson and Me
Phillips gave a representation of
“the dance as she is did,” and
their efforts were greeted with
much applause. They made a
graceful pair. Spencer and Price
also had a skit in thiB act, a vocal
ization of childishness which waa
effective if not very strong. The
performance of the “Mid-Nite
Sons” was clever in that it poa
sessed novelty, the chief requisite
of jazz, but it was a trifle subdued
tot a “paeon” of worship to the
Goddess of Syncopation, that em
bodiment of abandon.
“Shorts” Have Comedy
Act three was an attempt at
jjlack-face comedy, with “Bank”
Short and Thomas Short as the
participants in a “one-act melo
drama,” entitled “Homeward
Bound.” Mr. Short was undoubted
ly the star of this act.
“Bobby,” a one-act farce by the
University company, was a pleaa
ant poke at sentimental puppy
love. It was not at all subtle and
for that reason not as keenly in
teresting as it might have been. It
was well done, however, and
amused by its sheer idiocy. The
lines: “When I think of the way
I’ve loved that girl!” “Which
girl?” Both of them,” are typical
of the play.
Walter Malcolm was rather well
suited to the part of “Bobby,” and
Kate Pinneo was well cast as Kate
Andrews. Florence Crandall wan
laughable and lovable as the weep
ing young adolescent, Delilah An
drews. Paul Krausse, Helen Mayer,
Bernard McPhillips and Florence
Couch completed the cast of the
Violin Number Artistic
The first part of act five con
sisted of a gorgeous gown, a clever
pianist and a raucous voice com
bined into the evening’s closest
approach to typical American
vaudeville of today. The act
characterized jazz with its stri
dency and barbaric sensuousness.
We hear that the young lady can
really sing, upon occasion. The
second half of this number was a
departure from the general atmos
phere of the show. Five of the
University’s finest violinists lent a
truly artistic touch to the pro
