Medical School Scholarship Won By Edwin Durno i _ | Edwin Durno, ’12::, physical edu j cation, ha« been awarded a schol arship to the Harvard Medical school for the year 1925-20. Word , of the award was received by Mrs. J. P. Durno, his mother, who lives in Eugene.

While on the campus Durno was a member of Phi Delta Theta, Friars, and Order of the ‘“0”, and is now a member of Xu Sigma Xu, medical fraternity. Pie played on the varsity basket ball team. RULING ASKS RICHER SCHOLARSHIP STANDING Students Must Pass In More Hours Per Term A definite step toward raising ttie scholastic standing of the Univer sity was taken at the facultv*meet ing, Wednesday, when the number of hours in which a student must pass in order to remain in school was increased. The new ruling, adopted on the motion of the scholarship commit tee, provides that freshmen must pass in at least five hours of work, and other students in seven hours. The existing plan allows, the stu dent to remain in school if he passes in three hours. The change will not be put into effect before the spring term. Dissatisfaction was expressed with the present system under which freshmen often take two hours of military work, and by passing in this subject and in phys ical education are allowed to stay in school. The new ruling, it is thought, will make it necessary for the first year students to pass in at least one other course if they are to remain in the University. The adoption of the new plan was made with the intent of weeding out those students who are not fit university material. The natural effect will also be a noticeable ad vancement in the University’s standards. NATIONAL SECRETARY OF Y.W.C.A. TO YISI IT Elsie Heller, national student Y. W. C. A. secretary, located in the northwest field, is to be on the campus this week end and possibly the first part of next week, Mis| Florence Magowan, secretary of the ; local organization, announced today.

Olenn Quiett of ! the Oregon gift campaign organi ; ration and Ernest Haycox are I among the Oregonians with whom i Art chats over an occasional sand | wich. Rudd never forgets the Round-up. 'hiring his vacation from Columbia he ran down to Washington and talked Wild West to President Poolidgo at the White House, inter esting him in the great Pendleton show. And meanwhile he has kept his grades at Columbia well up to his Oregon standard—all A’s and B’s in the term examinations. o—----—: o High' Point Winner On Varsity Team --—--<5> O PHq t 0 Roy Okerberg USSEMBLY SPEAKER INTERESTS AUDIENCE < Moral culture is ns essential to success as an intellectual founda- , tion or a pleasing and energetic personality, according to Fred B. ! Smith in his assembly address on I “Fundamental Education.” Mr. Smith has the poise and skill of the experienced speaker and his ! unexpected blunt frankness and good-natured chuckle are well cal culated to win the interest of his j audience. Tn consoling the slow student, he i said, “I am always suspicious of stars—stars of any kind—they shine during four years at college, ! then their 'ight suddenly goes out. Tf one of mv children—and T have plenty of them—should come to me and tell me he was head of his | class, I’d be worried.” adding, i “J’ve never been worried. “Tt is the eternal perseverance j that wins,” ho declared in praising! the student who keeps on although I he is not n brilliant student and who gets lonely or discouraged, or 'who “walks on every one else’si ! feet at the dance.” The sort of student that received the speaker’s, ' denunciation is what lie designates as a “conceited fool with morals ! that are beginning to break down.” | i Character, he said, is a culture with its roots in faith and religion. “Live on a lofty plane,” was his closing admonition. Mr. Smith made his first visit to ; the campus 2." years ago, and since that time he has returned on the average of about once in every four years, so that, each “generation” at the University has known bim. Tn recalling these visits, he humorously observed, “T am not surprised that there have been so many successful students going out from this Uni versity.” PROFESSOR TO SPEAK AT PORTLAND MEETING Professor W.

OREGON QUINTET FREE HARD GAME I 1 Handicapped Varsity Plays | On Foreign Floor; 0. A. C. To Be Met in Big Game — | HOBSON TO COMPETE I '■ I i Aggies Develop New Style Of Play; Large Turnout 1 Of Veterans is Available . j Depending directly on the out. ■ come of the contest between the Beavers and Oregon (tomorrow i night, are tlie chances of the Lem on-Yellow- or the Aggies to win a coast conference pennant. Which ever team loses is practically elim inated as a championship contender. Oregon will be handicapped in more than one respect as the var sity will lie playing on a foreign floor, and sickness has played a rather hard part with the team, al though at present the quintet is in fair condition. By comparative scores, O. A. 0. has the better chance for a vic tory, as the Aggies have defeated the Huskies, a feat the varsity was unable to accomplish. Lineup Is Arranged Howard Hobson is back on the team and is playing up to usual form which will greatly aid the varsity in its fight with the Aggies. Iluss Rowans and Howard Hobson and Okerherg will np doubt start at forward and center. Ted Gil len waters and Swede Westergren will complete the lineup playing at guard. As the result of the Oregon Washington contest last week-end, Coach Reinhart has discovered a good defensive man in Chuck Jost who will probably break into the fray Saturday night. Jost, a rangy guard, may prove valuable in check ing up the fast breaking Aggie for wards. Aggies Have Strong Team The O. A. C. lineup will probably include Ridings and Baker as for wards with Brown, lanky, dangerous tip-off man, at center. Stoddard and Steele will play at guard. The Aggies are trying to develop a new style of game, playing more of a percentage game of basket ball. Under this system, the Beaver forwards play for the breaks and then, break with almost unstopnblo speed. Bob Hager, Beaver coach, (Continued on page three) SIGMA DELTA CHI HOST TO T.
