Co-eds Against Athletes Getting All Campus Jobs Men Divided on Question of Partiality in Placing University Work Curricula, Not Sports Big Influence on Preppers BY THE EDITOR The story books say that co-eds just dote on athletes; but if we judge from the returns on Emerald questionnaires, the story books found their material in other places than the University of Oregon. Here are the statistics: The eo-eds were asked, “Do you favor preference to athletes in dis tribution of campus jobs?” In ans wer 71 per cent of the ladies thun dered “No,” while the remaining 29 per cent admitted that athletes should be given the best of the bargain. College Men More Generous The college men are a bit more generous with their fellow athletes, 52 per cent believing that athletes should receive more consideration than the average man. There is a very strong tendency for fraternity folk to favor the athlete, while non fraternity people are quite willing, speaking generally, that he should shift for hinaself. The athletic reputation of the University has been almost a neg ligible factor in inducing students to enroll at Oregon. Less than three per cent of the freshman men listed athletics as a attraction, while of the women, only two freshman wom en, or less than one per cent of the first year co-eds considered the athletic reputation of the Universi ty in making their choice of alma mater. Of course these figures on the “athletic reputation” of the University are open to two inter pretations: First, the University may not have any “athletic reputa tion” or secondly, it may be inter preted that prospective students are not interested in athletics before they reaeh college. Many Attractions mmom The latter is probably the case, since approximately 35 per cent of the first year men reported that the scholastic reputation and cours es offered were the main attrac tions. Other factors inducing the student to enroll were: They wanted to come to the state University; they have friends at the University; it was near home. Even though athletics play a small part in indncing the prospec tive student to come to the Univer sity, once here the students have little grudge against intercollegiate and intra-mural and inter-organiza tion athletics. Fifty-seven per cent of the students wish inter-col legiate athletics to roeeivo the same emphasis as at present, and 26 per cent wish more emphasis on this type of athletics, making all told 83 per cent of the student body wishing as much or more emphasis on intercollegiate athletics than at present. Fourteen per cent wish less emphasis, and the remaining three per cent wish to see this kind athletics abolished altogether. Fraternity membership, sex and ■olnss seem to have litie effect on :the general attitude. Both men and women agree that inter-class and inter-organization athletics should be increased, 82 per cent of the former and 71 per cent of the latter being in favor fif more intra-mural sports. Athletics are gi.ven little blame for poor scholarship, only three or four per cent of blame being laid at the door of “too much athletics.” Candidates (Continued from page one) an on the executive council.

Co-eds to Hold First Play Day Non-competitive Events to Show Wide Range; Picnic Planned _______ Play Pay, the big athletic event being sponsored by W. A. A. between 1 Oregon and O. A. C., is just a month I away. Play Day is to be held for ' the first time this year, and, if suc ; cessful, will no doubt become an an ■ nual event. Tt will take the place of the field day which the women sport followers have had each spring. I The innovation will be held on the Oregon campus this year, and O. A. ! C. will send a large number of her best athletes over to join in sports j and a general play affair with our j women. The entire schedule of events is to be strictly non-competitive and l carried out to the letter, eliminating | any feeling of hostility between the two institutions in the realm of wom en’s sports. The teams will be com posed of an equal number of O. A. C. and Oregon girls. Plans for the day are being rapidly brought to a head, and as soon as each member of the general commit tee has perfected her share of the program, it will be made public. Practically every sport in which the Oregon women indulge will be included in the program for the day. At the close of the day a big pic nic supper will be spread on the lawn in front of the women’s gym nasium. Stunts are being planned to use during the picnic hour, and there will be an exhibition of inter pretative dancing on the campus lawn just after the supper. Four Rounds House Tennis Are Scheduled For This Afternoon The second round and part of the third found of the intra-mural tennis tournament will be played this afternoon, according to the schedule given ou,t last evening. This includes four games for this afternoon at the usual 4 o ’clock tennis hour. The teams matched this after noon ore: Oregon Club versus Al pha Tan Omega, Kappa Delta Phi versus Sigma Kn, Kappa Sigma versus Friendly hall and Chi Pei versus Phi Gamma Delta. The matches of Monday’s play were for the most part close and went Into high scores. A.T.O. de feated Beta Theta Pi in two hard struggles with a score of 9-7,9-7.

SHOE SHINE Comer 13th and Alder April Follies from Frolic Will Open Junior Vodvil Bill A light, sparkling, gay seene on board a yacht, peopled with an un usually good-looking group of senior women, will be the setting for the first number on the program of the Junior Vod-Vil. It has been named the “April Follies,” having been taken from the April Frolic. Clever acting, catchy songs and good cho rus work were deciding factors in the choice of the stunt for the Vod Vil program. The act won a storm of applause at the April Frolic and it is expected to go over big in the performance this week-end. Bet ty Alexander, DeLoris Pearson, Mar garet Powers, Edna Murphy, Adri enne Hazard, Imogene Lewis and Betty Smith, dressed in sports out fits, presgpt a very interesting cho rus. Other girls in the act are Janet Wood, who does a Russian dance, and a chorus composed of Mary Jo Shelley, Irva Dale, Betty Lewis' and Ernestine Troemel whose sailor hornpipe is particularly amus ing. Fdr those who desire to get “hep” to all the latest campus gossip, an opportunity is awaiting them in the scandal-revealing line offered by the Knotz and Morgan team. These comedians have collected some of the most soul-wracking facts about the supposedly respectable faction that can be imagined and the dis closure of many of the mysterious things that have been happening on the campus lately promise to be anything but bromidie. Those who have heard William Forbis sing have something of an idea of what he has to offer in "The Soul of Spain,” a musical and dance diversion. Etha Clark and Milton George will support him in a Span ish dance. Special sets have been chosen for the proper presentation of his act and novel lighting effects are used to help give the correct atmosphere for the production. Yesterday was the first day of the ticket sale and according to the turnout of houses and the amount netted from the ticket sale a large crowd is expected to attend. There will be a story on the three remaining acts tomorrow, two hav ing been written of in a previous paper. _ LAST DAY!

Discussion to Be On Campus Democracy The Freshman Commission of the Y.W.C.A. will meet Thursday after noon at 4:30 in the Bungalow. The subject of discussion will be “Cam pus Democracy,” lead by Beatrice Mason. Under the general title of “Cam' pus Democracy,” intellectual snob bishness, social snobbishness, and moral snobbishness will be brought up. The point of personal difficulty in overcoming these conditions will be talked over, as well as what Oregon has done to overcome them, including the “Hello” and other democratic Oregon traditions. Vocal solos will be given by Claire Whitton. First Year Trackmen Practice Daily; Squad Personnel Is Mystery With the first track meet of the season almost upon them, the fresh man track aspirants are working out daily under the watchful eyes of Bill Hayward and Spike Leslie. In order to concentrate his time on those who will make up the frosh squad, Spike will hold tryouts for the Babes next Saturday along with the varsity tryouts for the Seattle relays. Just who will make up the squad is a mystery to all, especially after the intramural track meet last Saturday when several “dark horses” appeared on the scene. The big problem for the coaches next Saturday will be in the sprints. Kircher and Cheshire seem to be the only ones assured of their places. These two will be pressed hard by Ord, Hunter, Clark and McCutch en, who have been improving stead ily. In the hurdles Foster, McGee and Crawford are showing up well. Crawford in the high jump, Stager in the discus and Sanderson in the shot put should not have much trouble in taking their share of first places. Little in the mile, Mc Kitrick in the half mile and Stand ard in the quarter mile should eas ily cop their share of the pqints. The first meet for the frosh will probably be May 1, on Hayward field against the Portland high schools, although this has not been definitely decided. The annual re lay carnival against the O. A. C. Books will be run in Corvallis, May 15 and the Frosh-Book dual meet will be held in Eugene, May 28. The date for the Frosh U. of W. frosh meet to be held in Seattle has not been definitely decided upon as yet.
