This Week-end
Reinhart Spends Time
On Pitchers in Practice'
Injuries Affect Throwing
Ability of Flingers
,rf''lOACH Billy Reinhart, 14 var
sitv baseball players and Har
old Brumfield, manager, leave to
night at 7:15 for Seattle where the
Lemon-Yellow meets the University
of Washington Huskies in a two
game series, Friday and Saturday.
The Puget Sou^d games mark the
varsity's second conference series.
Last night’s practice consisted
mainly of trying out pitchers. Rein
hart had fiinger after flinger on the
mound, each heaving to the varsity
swingers. Bill Baker is the only
pitcher who has shown much stuff to
date. Freddy West, who Reinhart
figured quite extensively on at the
beginning of the season, is suffering
from an infected shoulder muscle.
He is making the trip and should
the shoulder respond to treatment
by that time, the little right hander
will start Saturday’s fracas.
Search for Hurler
Jerry Gunther, the latest try in
the box, will accompany the team
north. Gunther worked out last
night, but has been taking it too
■strenuously the past few days, and
is bothered with a sore elbow. Dave
Epps is also a new comer on the
mound, and according to Reinhart
last night, the big left fielder may
get a chance to perform on the hil
lock. Epps has quite an assortment
of curves, but has had little chuck
ing experience.
For southpaw hurling, Reinhart
will depend on Lefty Macdonald
and Art Schoeni. Macdonald worked
in several of the pre-conference
games, but is troubled with a lack
of control. Schoeni has done little
throwing thus far, as an injured
back has kept him from the mound.
In case West’s shoulder is not im
proved Schoeni will start the sec
ond game.
Baker to Start
Bill Baker will assume the pitch
ing burden in Friday’s game and
should make it interesting for the
northerners. Baker scored a win

Voters Set Record

S. S. Smith’s New
Book on Comedy
Now Completed
Ten Chapters Devoted
To Study of Social
Idea in Comedy
“As for the English comedy, it is
furtherest from my intent to deny
it an independent life, gay, viva
cious, full of caprice, and follow
ing its own bent apart from all his
tory outside its own. But I want
here to find out how far, since 1860,
it has been like the play going on
upon the ‘Great Stage of the
World,’ as Calderon called his best
morality,” says S. Stephenson
Smith, assistant professor of Eng
lish, in his recently-completed book,
“The Social Idea in Comedy, 1860
to 1920.”
“As sixteenth century comedy
came from the tavern and the uni
versity, restoration- comedy from
the court and the boudoir, eigh
teenth century comedy from the
drawing-room and the country
house; so the Victorian comedy
emerged from the clubs, to be
promptly impounded by the ladies,
and endowed with the proprieties,
the etiquette, and the decorous ro
manticism of the tea-table. Against
this influence, slightly dampening to
the spirits of high comedy, the writ
ers were to struggle in vain, even
when they adopted French farce;
until in the late nineties Thalia
was shown into still stranger com
pany by George Bernard Shaw,”
the author explains.
One of the ten chapters is de
voted to Shaw, in which he is com
pared to Don Quixote, with Sidney
Webb for his Sancho Panza. “And
he has not slashed at the winesacks,
fought with Biscayan monks such
as Max Nordau the pessimist and

Dr. Smith to Relate
Philippine Experiences
An illustrated lecture on Spanish
influence in the Philippines will be
given by Dr. Warren D. Smith of
the geology department at 7:30 to
night in Condon hall before Sigma
Delta Pi, honorary Spanish club.
It is open to the public.
The lecture will be in the form of
a travelogue, combed from the ex
periences and observations of Dr.
Smith during 12 years of explora
tion on the islands when he pene
trated the interior of the large is
j lands from Formosa to Borneo. He
was the first white man to conduct
j a scientific expedition across the
| island of Mindanao and one of the
| first jnen to cross the island. Part
! of the way the men had to bore a
' tunnel through a jungle so dense
, that they were unable to ascertain
I the direction of the sun.
