“Stanford has the best balanced
track team I ever saw down south.
If one man fell down in an event
there was always someone there to
take his place—they just couldn’t
be beaten,” said Bill Hayward, var
sity coach, upon his return from
California, where he refereed the
premier track and field event of
the Pacific coast in the Stanford
California track meet.
Bill was chosen on the recommend
ation of Walt Christie, California
coach, and Dink Templeton, Stan
ford coach, as the best man to ref
eree the affair. In the past, there
has been great difficulty in getting
competent judges, but the decisions
rendered by Hayward last Saturday
produced no squawking for the first
time in many years. Hayward’s
25 years at Oregon anl his experi
ence at four Olympic games ably
qualified him for the job.
“The greatest race of the day
was probably run by Richardson,
of Stanford in the half-mile, which
he won in 1:53.8,” said Hayward,
“The way Richardson won this par
ticular race was contrary to all rules
of running and if he had run it as
was usually figured he would prob
ably have lost. Richardson, a rath
er slight man with an unusually
long stride, was running fourth with
Boyden, of California, leading at
the 660-yard mark. But on the turn,
instead of waiting to sprint on the
straightaway for the last 100 yards,
he opened up and passed all four
men like a flash and was down the
track sprinting just like a 220 man
for the full 220 to win by a margin
of eight yards.
“Richardson is easily the greatest
half milcr ever developed on (lie
coast,” he continued. “It is doubt
ful whether or not ho will be able
to repeat for it is usually the case
that some men are only good for
one big race like that a season.
Ho is a better runner than Ray
Hodge but not ns powerful.
“How does ho compare with Ted
Meredith?” Bill was asked.
“I saw Ted Meredith break the
world record at Stockholm in 1912
with the time of 1:52.1, and that was
a wonderful race when the great
half-miler was at the top of his rac
behind him that day was Mol Shep
pard and although I do not think
Richardson could boat Meredith I
think ho could beat Sheppard.
“Before I saw Richardson run,
I thought that Charteris of Wash
ington would beat him but now I
think the Washingtonian will come
“The greatest half-miler we ever
had at Oregon, while we are on
the subject of hnlf-milers, was Wal
ter McClure back in 1912. McClure
ran the half in 1:55 but never ap
proached the record closer than that.,
lie ran in the Olympic games and
placed ninth in a field of 16 run
“Another great race of last Sat
urday’s meet—but they wore all
great races—was the hurdles run
by West. The California man was
leading the field until 50 feet from
the finish when with a phenomenal

burst of speed West of Stanford
broke away and almost sailed over
the rest of the sticks for a 15:0
in the event. It was a wonderful
“The reason coaches have such
wonderful track teams in the south
is the spirit of competition. Where
several good men are in one event,
it makes all of them fight to get
any place in it—just like the hurdles
this year at Oregon where the com
petition is particularly ken.
Bill Hayward also refereed the
freshman meet between the Stan
ford and California teams, in which
several dual records were broken.
“In placing the teams in the
south, I would place the University
of Southern California to win in a
triangular meet, with Stanford sec
ond and California third. But I
confidently think that Stanford
would win over either team—in a|
dual meet on account of their won-1
dnrfully well-balanced team.
Track ns seen by Bill Hayward
at the southern schools has taken
a rapid rise. It is highly probable
that western men like RicliardBon,
Charteris, Sweet, Grumbles, House,
and a host of others will hog the
track honors of the country at the
big intercollegiate meets at Phila
delphia and Chicago this spring.
The most powerful track teams and
the future outstanding athletes will
pome from the Pacific coast slopes,
if present strength can be judged.

benefits all through life, many
years after rah rah-ism has wilted
With the activity bug rampant,
as the questionnaires have demon
strated, one might easily assume
that students have been forced in
to these activities against their
own wishes. This is not the case, j
however, and we must assume that
love for the extra-curricula is in
nate and strictly American. Only
four per cent of the student body
has been forced into student acti
vities' against their own wishes.
Fraternity Life Considered
Enlightening figures have been
revealed concerning the effect of
fraternity house living upon stu
dies. In answer to the question,
“Would you study more less or the
same, if not living in a fraternity
house,” 20 per cent reported that
they would study more, 24 per cent
said they would study less, and 56
per cent believed they would study
Here, then, is somewhat of a
bombshell into current beliefs. Gen
eral opinion has it that fraterni
ties are a detriment to studies,
maintaining that social activities
and other distractions take the fra
ternity person away from his les
sons. General opinion may be right,
but in the minds of the fraternity
folk, it is wrong. Deciding the
question is another matter.

The catalog contains 40 pages and
carries complete announcements re
garding the work to be given at
the Eugene and Portland sessions.
It also contains a description of
the courses to be offered.
Twenty-two schools and depart
ments will be represented on this
campus, making a total of 95 cours
es. There will be 20 schools and de
partments at Portland, and a total
of 60 courses. Courses in educa
tion, English, history, sociology and
psychology will be featured at each
session. The course in coaching
which will be given at Eugene is
an especially attractive one, and a
large enrollment is expected. Ma
rine zoology and field geology will
be taught at the Eugene session
As a new feature this year, there
will be a post session, offering four
weeks of additional work, from Aug
ust 2 to August 22. This makes
it possible for students to complete
the equivalent of a term’s work.
Another interesting plan for the
campus session will beyithe daily
assemblies at 11 o’clock with musie
al programs and lectures. Address
es will be given by various members
of the, local faculty and visiting in
structors. Arrangements have been
made for a partial list of speakers,
