New Officers Take Up Work Of Student Body TRUCKMEN FACE HHRD STRUGGLE Bill Hayward’s Men Due For Real Competition in Tilt With 0. A. C. Stars EIGHTY ENTER EVENTS 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 ders. 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 (Continued on page four) JUNIOR PROM FEATURE TO HAVE FIFTEENTH CENTURY SETTING 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 Lapham. Seventeen Selected At Recent Election Are Sworn In 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 dent body, and a similar number returned to the ranks of the body of University membership, many of them for only a few weeks, until commencement ends their Univer sity careers. The new officers are Walter Mal colm, Paul Ager, DeLoris Pearson, Edward Miller, Maurine Buchanan, Bob Love, Carl Dahl, Dick Lyman, Flqyd McKalson, Ellen McClellen, Jo-Ann Warwick, Lowell Bakfer, James Forestel, Betty Beans, Bob Overstreet, Freddie Martin, and Elizabeth Cady. Randall Jones Speaks The retiring officers were: Ran dall Janes, Don Woodward, Vic Risley, Ruth Akers, Mary Skinner, Joe Ellis, Ed Miller, Gordon Wil son, Marie Myers, Margaret Powers, Paul Ager, Mary Brandt, Loren Conley, Fred Martin and Augusta DeWitt. 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 thusiastic support of the students themselves. He called special at tention to several of the agencies and bodies connected with student government whose assistance mater ially aided the work of the admin istration. The Emerald, both editor and staff, were thanked for its coopera tion with the administration, and for its high and honest policy. The Oregana staff was complimented on its production of this year’s an nual. The Oregon Knights were 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 ing of the administration. All this work was done without outside no dents, the retiring president said, tic.e, and with no idea of reward other than that of serving the stu Old Officers Leave After the oath of office as ad ministered, the old officers left the platform, and the administration of 1925-192(5 took over the responsi bilities of office. In his installation address, Wal ter Malcolm, the new president, thanked the students for their con (Continued on page three) FROSH BASEBALL TEAM MEETS ROOKS TODAY The first clash between the base ball teams of University of Ore gon freshmen and the Oregon Aggie rooks will take place this afternoon at 3:00 o’cloek on the varsity dia mond. Neither team has had a real test, so little is known of their ability. In a game played at Salem several weeks ago the rooks were defeated by Salem high school by a close score. Several days ago Ore gon ’s yearling team was defeated by Eugene high by a small margin. Coach Sorsby’s hopes received a severe blow yesterday, when Bel don Babb, second baseman and lead-off man, was declared ineligi ble. Thi3 will leave quite a hole in the green capper line up. How ever, Doty has been showing up well at this position. The tentative lineup for today’s i game will be: Eberhart, first; Doty, ■second; Hanley, short; McAllister, I third; Henningsen and Caughell, catchers; Kuhn, left field; Ed | wards, Zeebuyth, Mayfield, Hemp ! stead, or Newby, center and right \ field. Baker will receive the call for mound duty, with Fries, Bam ber and Mojovski held in reserve. -o OREGON KNIGHTS ATTENTION Oregon ' Knights meet at, Anchorage promptly at 7:00 p. i m. to usher for canoe fete. | I <$>~ "" " 1 ..<$> COUNCIL ALTERS RUSHING ROLLS Important Changes Made By Pan-Hellenic Body at Meeting Held Yesterday MORE MONEY ALLOWED 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 rules. 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 end. 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 end. “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.” RESOLUTION 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 it 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.

Provided it does not rain, the luncheon will be served in the us ual plac0( of Deady hall, otherwise the men’s gymnasium will be used. The food will be served from 11:30 until 1:30, and the students have been requested to come promptly in order that those working on lunch eon committees will be able to at tend some of the events scheduled for the afternoon. Menu is Given Instead of having two long serv ing lines, there will be four or six this year so that it will be possible 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 food. The menu will be as follows: cold sliced veal, baked beam, fruit saladj hot rolls, ice cream sand wiches and lemonade.

This game is scheduled for the premier baseball event of Saturday after, noon at 4:30. The teams will be ready to start in time to attract the fans as they leave Hayward s field after the meet with O. A. C. So far this year these two teams ; have crashed and batted opposing i pitchers- until they now remain the I onlyf undefeated aggregations in the I doughnut race. It is rumored that several small j city scouts will be on the campus ; during the week-end' and if the I players show enough ability there is a possibility the teams will be j hired to put on a comedy of errors ! for some Fourth of July celebera j tion in somebody’s home town. However, this is a rumor which ! started among the players them. , selves and is possibly underground ] ed. There is no doubt that the boys j of the various organizations will I do their bit to make it an inter eating afternoon for the fans and fanettes. This is not a varsity contest and the “no juning” rul 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 tured by the hurling of little Eldon 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 ! took a close game for the Bachelor 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 | no run game when little “Brute” 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 bot; Bachelordon—Skinner, Meyer and Priestly.
