Bill Hayward’s Men Due
For Real Competition in
Tilt With 0. A. C. Stars
By Web Jones
Four score athletes will gather at
Hayward field this Saturday for
the major event on the season’s
track schedule. It’s going to be a
battle; there’s no denying that,
with the varsity crippled and far
below its early-season promise.
There’s a rumor that “Dad” Butler,
veteran Aggie trainer, has been
pointing his team for this meet. A
strong team of 40 men will repre
sent O. A; C. in the meet.
Bill Hayward, seasoned, experi
enced, trainer and coach, has been
nursing the team along to its high
est possible efficiency. A little
tapering off, and they are all ready
for the meet, with the exception
of the cripples, and the sick.
Bill Smiles Wistfully
Bill wears a wistful smile, as he
scans the cinder oval, gives some
last instructions to the varsity men,
or tells them not to work too hard
before the meet. He has met with
hard luck this year, perhaps as
every- year has its hard luck. He
hardly dares think of what his team
would have been if he had some of
the men which he had out at the
beginning of the season, So all he
does is smile and shrug his shoul
A hashing over the dope reveals
the fact that 'Oregon will probably
be strong in several events—parti
cularly the sprints, hurdles, jumps
and javelin. On the other hand,
the Aggies are entering gome strong
men in the distances and the weight
events. However, the old dope !
bucket may fee knocked cock-eyed!
by the absence of a couple of Ore-1
gon stars in the lineup.
Aggie Milers Fast
In the mile three of that near
record breaking four-mile relay
team will be entered in Mason,
Clayton and Bell. That’s a crew of
fast milers; but Henry Tetz, per
haps the fastest Oregon man in the
race, has been cutting his time
down in every race he has run. Tetz
is running his last year for Oregon,
and he will probably place.
The sprints look good for Oregon,
with a trio of fast steppers in Jer
ry Extra, Izzy Westerman, and
Proc Flannagan. Flannagan is the
newest recruit in the event, and
from his work out on the track the
past week he will erowd the other
two mighty close. Finch, the best
Aggie sprinter, was beaten by
Shroeder of Washington in the dual
meet, and Extra beat Shroeder eas
ily' at Seattle, so that eliminates
him as a first-rate contender. Ver
millye, Cram and Bell are all slower
than Finch.
Jim Kinpey, fleetest of foot in
the 440, has the edge on Earhart of
O. A. C. but there is no doubting
the strength of the visitor. This
race promises to be the thriller of
the afternoon, with two evenly
matched, first-class quarter men
hitting it up every inch of the way.
I Joe Price and Paul Ager will be run
ning as—the second and third men
for Oregon. Higgins and Eberiiart

The setting for the Junior Prom,
the final event of Junior Week-end,
will be a picturesque representation
of the feudal hall of the fifteenth
century, according to Arthur Gale,
chairman of the decorations com
mittee. For the presentation of the
feature, which will be during the
eleventh dance, the lights will be
dimmed and two pages will appear
before the Gothic arches and
poudre blue drapes that transform
the stage. Seated upon the throne
in the center of the stage will be
the Duchess of Burgundy, Geneva
Smith, with her attendants. Dances
■will be given before the court by
Delbert Faust and Edna Dipple, at
tired in costumes of the period.
A group of gypsy minstrels will
present a ballet, interrupting the
dances of the courtiers. The four
girls of the ballet are Dorothea
Drake, Adeline Zurcher, Rowen
Gale and Kate Lambert. The dances
have been directed by Delbert
Faust, assisted by Edna Dipple. Ar
thur Gale has designed the settings,
costumes and drapes and the throne
was designed by Dorothy Myers. A
special lighting system is being
used, under the direction of Evan
Seventeen Selected At
Recent Election

Another milestone was passed in
A. S. U. O. history at yesterday’s
assembly, when a new administra
tion was sworn into office, and the
old retired. Seventeen students
pledged their service to the stu

Randall Jones, retiring presi
dent, bespoke the confidence of the
old administration in the new.
Whatever successes have been made
during the year that is closing,
Jones declared, are due to the en

themselves. He called special at

The Emerald, both editor and
staff, were thanked for its coopera

for its high and honest policy. The
Oregana staff was complimented on
its production of this year’s an

praised for their work in- entertain
ing visiting teams, and doing the
routine work on the campus. The
Thespians were thanked for their
labors in performing the clerical
work necessary to the smooth work

work was done without outside no

other than that of serving the stu

Important Changes Made
By Pan-Hellenic Body at
Meeting Held Yesterday
Mass Meeting Planned for
Explanation of Code to
New Women Students
Important revisions of rushing
rules for next year were made at
the meeting of the Pan-Hellehic
council held yesterday afternoon in
the Woman’s building.
It was decided by the council
that there should be no afternoon
dates during rush week nor any
rushing of parents at that time. An
increase was made in the amount
of money allowed for the week. It
was also arranged that there should
be a mass meeting held for all
freshmen girls on the first Monday
of rush week to explain rushing
There will be a restriction of
functions during the year at which
sororities may entertain guests.
This restriction is made in order to
control the amount of rushing that
a sorority has to do and to curb the
tendency to have guests every week
Revised Copies to Be Out
Revised copies of rushing rules
will be printed soon for distribu
tion among the houses.
Rules 17 and 18 of the code have
been revised to read as follows:
“No girls should be asked for dates
or promises 01 dates for the follow
ing fall until tne firts Monday af
ter the last scneduled examination.
Each house may be allowed two
week-ends during which rushees
may be entertained. One of these,
the occasion to be optional with the
sorority, is to be closed for the pur
houses on the campus for the pur
pose of rushing and the other td
be April Frolic week-end at which
time other houses may entertain
the guests. Guests at all other
times are to be discouraged.”
Rule 19 is Added
Rule 19 has been added to the
code to read as follows:
“No sorority nor sorority mem
ber shall have any entertainments
of any sort for any guests which
are prospective University students
or which are eligible for rushing
and shall discourage the presence
of such prospective students or
rushees during Junior Week-end.”
The question of guests during
Junior Week-end was also brought
up for discussion. It was empha
sized that the ruling concerning
guests for Junior Week-end is a
University ruling, voted and passed
on by the student body. Pan-Hel
lenic council took a stand in its
favor at the time the ruling was
made, thereby preventing any pos
siblity of rushing at Junior Week
“The Council hopes,” said Al
berta McMonies, president of Pan
Hellenic,” that the spirit of the
code will be observed and that no
attempts will be made to avoid the
rules in any way.”
WHEREAS, Mr. Frank L.
Chambers saw fit to make the
University a gift of land lying
along the south bank of the mill
race in order that the privilege
of othe race might be assured to»
the students, and
WHEREAS, the Students
greatly appreciate this gift: be
RESOLVED^ by the Associ
ated Students of the University |
of Oregon that to Mr. Chambers
we express our heartiest thanks^
and be it further
RESOLVED, that a copy of
this resolution be sent to Mr.
Chambers, and that a copy be j
transcribed on the records of'
the A. S. U. O., and that a copy |
be published in the student pub- i
I lication.

Boot® to Be Open Today
The sale of general admission
tickets, about 1000 in all, will be
gin today. They may be bought
at the Co-op or at either of the
booths which will be stationed near
the bleachers. In order to accom
modate the large number of persons
who are expected to want these

number of them^ the booths will be
open from 5 o’clock on this after
noon. The tickets, which will sell
at 25 cents, will be for seats in the
temporary bleachers which will be
erected today in back of the regu
lar bleachers and on the street.
The houses are asked to call
Toole some time today to get the
numbers for their floats, so that
each organization will know defin
itely before hand thg time at which
its float is to appear. A final
warning is issued for the houses to
have their floats in the water not
later than 6 o’clock this evening.
There will be a committee at the
starting place all afternoon and
evening to direct the floats.
Fifteen Men Needed
All junior men who can possibly
assist with the work, principally
with the lighting, are urged to re
port at the bleachers this morning.
About 15 men will be needed.
The bleachers have all been re
paired and a committee sectioned
and numbered the seats yesterday.
The bleachers will be opened in
sufficient time for every one to
find his seat before the fete be
The Pi-id Pipers orchestra will

before the first float comes down
the race. The Barber Shop quar
tette^ which scored a big hit at
Junior Yodvil, will give several
selections during the fete.
Bob Mautz has been appointed
as announcer for the evening. The
members of the committee who will
act as judges are as follows: Miss
Maude T. Kerns, of.the art depart
ment; Bean H. Walker, student ad
viser; and Frederick S. Bunn, of
the Latin department.
Golda Boone, a senior in physi
cal education, has been appointed
director of playground work in
Bend, for the summer months.
Classes in swimming and various
sports will make up the major part
of her work. There will probably
be some recreational work for
adults, also. Paul Ager will bo a co
worker with Miss Boone.
This work will probably continue
until the first of September, when
Miss Boone will assume the duties
of supervision of physical educa
tion in the Bend elementary schohls,
and for girls in the high schools.
She lias been prominent in athlet
ics during her four years on the

eon committees will be able to at

for every one to receive the food
while it is still hot, and make it
possible for every one to be served
within a shorter time than usual.
This plan was suggested by Mrs.
Edna Prescott Davis, director of
the halls of residence, who aided
in planning the meal and ordering

The menu will be as follows:
cold sliced veal, baked beam, fruit
saladj hot rolls, ice cream sand

ing will be void.
In the playoff games yesterday f
the Beta Theta Pi nine tore through
a hectic seven inning contest and
out-hit, out ran and out scored the
Sigma Nu stars. The final count
was 15 to 5. This game was fea

Lambert, Beta, who held the bat
ters to a few scratch hits. The bat
teries for this contest were: Beta—■
Lambert and Reynolds; Sigma Nu—
Scotty and Benke.
Phi Gamma Delta showed the
necessary amount of punch and

don nine in the second of the semi
final encounters. The final count
for this tilt was 0 to 1. Flynn,
pitching for Fiji, was robbed of a

Osborne smashed out a terrific
triple which brought in the only
run for Bachelordon. Osborne was
out trying to stretch his triple in
to a homer. The batteries for this
game were: Fiji—Flynn and Tal

and Priestly.
