Defeat of Favorites is
Surprise; White and
Edge Show Promise
Entry List Again Open;
Doubles Start Today
Two seeded players were removed
from the fall intra-mural tennis
tournament in yesterday’s play and
a third came dangerously near to
Jack Kaplan, the first of the
seeded players to taste defeat, was
handed the short end of a 6-2, 6-3
score by Ivan White, a sophomore
who has transferred from Willam
ette university. Jack was undoubt
edly off his usual strong game but
White nevertheless displayed some
fine tennis to beat him. Ralph Edge,
a junior from California, sprang the
big surprise of the day by beating
George Mead in a well-played three
set match, 2-6, 6-1, 7-5. Edge show
ed that he is to be reckoned with
when the varsity squad is selected
Clare Hartman had one of the bat
tles of his life when he defeated
Peterson 6-4, 11-9. The score is elo
quent of the closeness of the match.
Other results were: Oberberg defeat
ed Nooe, 6-0, 6-2; Coffin defeated
Terry, 6-1, 6-3; Neer defeated Haes
ke, 6-2, 6-2.

bulletin board in the men ’a gym

ment which is to bo open to all

first match of the present tourna
ment or who failed to enter.

Saturday. So the aspirants for the
first string can expect little else
than a stiff diet of practice on Hay

Lynn Jones and Ira Woodic, who
spent Saturday on tho bench due
to bruises, wero back in tho line
up yesterday. Showing made by sub
stitutes in the Badger contest won
for them an opportunity to show
their ability on tho varsity during
the workout. One of these, John
Warren, tackle understudy of Cap
tain A1 Sinclair, took his place dur
ing the practice. Nick Carter, 1925
regular at center, appeared to be
regaining the pivot place.
Art Ord, the pocket-edition
Grange, and Wetzel worked out in
the baekfield of the first squad. Otto
Vitus held down halfback berth on
the second string during the after
noon. Ted Pope may fill the shoes
vacated by Bob Mautz when his
career closed last fall. Pope comes
from the freshman squad of last]
year and the showing made by him
in the Pacific game Saturday may!
give him a chance to start in the i
line-up against Washington.
McEwan will probably make other j
substitutions during the week to
determine a smooth working com
bination to set against the Huskies,
and prove the Oregon “jinx” to be
more threatening than the bally
hooing of sportswriters.
Forward passing received the
combined attention of McEwan, j
Vidal and Mautz for the greater]
part of the practice program of the
backs and ends yesterday. Sherm
Smith and Pope are increasing in
dependability at scooping the ball
from the ozone and becoming shifty
and fast scoring assets.

cessful, though, in that they got a
good “hot” hand and brought
down the paddles.
The seal kissing wound up the
parade proper and then the really
exciting part of the morning be
gan. Brave imen sobbed and women
wept great gobs of tears as the two
classes went 'out upon Hayward
field to unite in mortal combat.
Both great minds of the frosh
class got together and agreed to
fight for their school and for their
class in an attempt to win the
mightiest of fights, the Frosh mix.
The Senior 'Cop parade, the first
thing on the program, didn’t seem
to take well with the frosh, for
after the parade was over the whole
mob made a mad rush for the sen
iors. The fight was short lived, as
the noble sophs soon intervened and
put the leaders of the frosh in the
The other events, those of a more
murderous intent, followed in rapid
succession. The cane rush, due to
the illness of the professional as
sassins, went to the frosh. The
push ball contest, the tilting contest
and the flag rush all went to the
sophomores. The freshmen showed
that they were mentally deficient
and physically below normal by the
way they fought in the mix.
Steps imust be taken by the school
soon to have them all put through
the grades again and the sophs have
agreed to exercise them so the class
of ’BO may make a fair soph class
next year. As things look now, they
have made a poor showing.

Picturesque Old China Faces New
Problem of Educational Finance
Mrs. Erma Zimmerman Smythe Finds Homey Feeling
And Antiquity in Civilization
“China’s greatest problem of to
day is education,” said Mrs. Erma
Zimmerman Smythe, Oregon, 1919,
who hag spent two years in China
since her graduation. Mrs. Smythe’s
husband, Mr. Donald D. Smythe,
also a 1919 graduate, was professor
of geology at the Peiyang National
University in Tientsin, China, and
it was there that Mrs. Smythe was
able to make her observations con
cerning the educational conditions
of China in their present sad state.
Chinese experts have worked out
and some places have adopted a
fine system of education for their
schools, but due to the state the
country is now in, and incidentally
the lack of financial support, it is
impossible to put the system into
use, said Mrs. Smythe. As long as
the country is politically so upset,
the schools will not receive the nec
essary financial support to carry
on their work. Various war lords,
who keep the country in arms,
come in where there are schools,
seize the money for their armies,
and oftentimes use the schools for
hospitals and even for barracks.
Any support from Peking is hope
less; for money never comes into
that city, because of the feuds of
the war krrds and seizures of mon
ey. The Chinese people are very
careful not to show wealth if they
have it, as life and wealth are very
uncertain; consequently any show
of support from individuals is rare.
Pride keeps the centrally located
schools going, but those farther
away from population are badly
abused, stated Mrs. Smyt'ne.
There are more agricultural col
leges in China than there are sci
ence and art colleges, but the Chi
nese are realizing more and more
the importance of the sciences.
If the first four years of school
as the American children have,
were to be taught in China, there
would be the problem of teachers,
which contributes so greatly to the
educational problem as a whole.
Six hundred thousand more teachers
would be needed, the Oregon wo
man exclaimed. It is hoped in their
country that education may some
day become compulsory. The boys
and girls go to separate schools at
least until they reach the univer
sities, many 'of which have taken
up the co-educational system. There
are national universities well scat
tered throughout China; Peking
has nine, Shanghai one, and Tient
sin one, and there are many others,
said Mrs. Smythe. The high schools
are supported by the provinces in
which they are located, and the
grade schools by the villages.
To the question, “Is China in a
constant state of upheaval?” Mrs.
Smythe answered, ‘ ‘ Politically—
yes.” And it qannot be predicted
how long the country will be so.
General Wu Gei Su, in pursuing
his aim, unification of China by
force, has made many attempts to
ward that end, but has been de
feated again and again.

the people, and has not been spok

There has been an agitation started
to nationalize the Chinese spoken
language. Books and magazines and
okher printed material are al
ready being printed in the spoken
language, and thus progress is be
ing made, noted the observer. It is
interesting also that the northern
and southern dialects differ so
much that they are not under
stood outside of their own realms.
Mrs. Smythe says that the Chinese
language is complex but very beau
tiful, and is elegant and euphonious
in style. Words are chosen for their
tone as well as their meaning. One
man studied Chinese for thirty
years and said he didn’t get very
-ai—there are so many things to
Mrs Smythe expressed her liking
for China, saying that there seemed
to be a homey feeling there, and
that all Chinese can be exceedingly
polite when they want to be—even
the rikshau drivers. The antiquity
of the civilization is felt in the
stores and wherever one goes. A
sincere desire to see China progress
in its educational attempts was pre
dominant in Mrs. Smythe’s conver
