VOLUME XXV XI UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY. MAY 3, 1927 NUMBER 1ST Oregon Baseball Team Has Unusual Record Reinhart Advises Change In Rules According to L. McGlook, Listener; Baseball Summarized By HABOLD MANGTJM The Oregon baseball team has established a record this spring, but not exactly a desirable one. The Webfoots have the _ unprecedented dis- ;§ tinction of losing g seven of their first if eight games, includ-| ing four conference| encounters, and six. of them by the| slim margin of ones tally, which is cer-| tainly remarkable. | Therefore Coach | Billy Reinhart hasg torn a page from Captain MeEwan’s Bill Reinhart notebook, ana is au in ravor or a revolutionary change in the rules. McEwan would pull spring practice from the football category, but Rein hart’s suggestion would be to change the scoring rules of baseball. According to Luke McGlook, that mysterious key-hole listener who has helped the Emerald out of so many tight jams, Reinhart would alter the rules so as to have runs count two points instead of one. In this manner, Oregon could arbitrarily lose no more games by one point. Games would be perforce be settled in even numbers. Luke claims to have garnered this information by mental telepathy. Starting against Linfield College, the Webfoots were nosed out, 5 to 4, in ten innings. Linfield is a wee institution with a total enrollment less than that of Oregon’s depart ment of English, so the home fires burned crisply that night. Pacific University, another minor institu tion whose principal claim to glory is its ability to serve as a thorn in Oregon’s feathery flanks, wds the next visitor, and left town with two out of three games in their worn batbag. They took the first by one run, 8 to 7, and then dropped the second when the Webfoots got their big bats into action. The third went to the lads from Forest Grove, 10 to 8, in eleven innings, after the lemon-yellow had kicked away a dozen scoring chances. Bill Baker lost his first start against the Aggies, 5 to 6, in an other of those see-saw affairs which inevitably result in Oregon being nosed out. The Webfoots got quite convincingly smacked the next day, 13 to 7, but that happens in the best regulated families. Came the Washington series. Freddy West surprised himself by losing* 1 to 0, to Hal Gardner, the Huskies’ captain and pitching ace. That uncanny one run again. The next day, last Saturday, the score was 3 to 2, which, so far as per centage goes, is the same as 1 to 0 or 88 to 2. * » » The point is that one run defeats are getting monotonous. Why not get in and lose some games right, since they’re to be lost? Why not put in some pitchers who’ll groove ’em down the alley, and then we’ll see some mighting batting, at least. * • * Intrinsically, the team isn’t so bad if its pitching continues as was in evidence at Seattle. Men like Lynn Jones, Don McCormick, Dave Epps. Harry Dutton, Cotter Gould, and Bill Baker have mauled the great American apple in the past, and they are liable to maul it again in the future. The infield is fast, although not overly experienced, and the Webfoots are facing a long home stand. Perhaps these one run defeats will cease to be the fashion. Shattered Romance Will be Tried Tonight The first civil case on the moot court trial docket will take place tonight, at seven o’clock. One of the chief characters of the Creole Moon, the Junior musical comedy, is suing one of the male leads in the same east for breach of promise of marriage. The identity of the par ties, as well as the sordid details of the case, will be disclosed at the trial. Margaret Woodson and Ed Kelly are representing the plaintiff; and Hymen Samels and Bob Mautz are the lawyers for the defendant. The trial will take place at the Lane county courthouse and Dean W. G. Hale of the law school will act as judge. Plans Ready For Dramatic Tournament Several Committees Named To Aid in Receiving And Housing Future Matinee Idols To Arrive Wednesday Sophomores Will Present “Trysting Place” T"VETAILS of the program for the U luncheon to be held May 5, at 12:30 in the sun parlor of the Woman’s building for the purpose of entertaining the participants of the High School Drama tournament, held three days, May 4, 5 and 6 have been completed.

Wins 3 to 2 Canon, Cahill Show Best Hurling of Intramural Ball Heavers Yesterday’s donut contest was one of those affairs that are always in doubt until the last man is; out. From first to last it was a pitching duel with S. P. E. finally coming out on top 3 to 1. Ganon of 8. P. E. and Cahill of Chi Psi hurled the most consistent and effective ball of any intra mural game this season. Ganon af lowed four scattered hits and struck out nine batters. The S. P. E. crowd found Cahill’s slants for only three blows, but a couple of loose plays in the Chi Psi infield let in the counting runs. The victors tallied twice in the third inning when Richmond, who was safe on an error, scored on a long double by Fries. Fries stole third and went home on an over throw. Buzan scored on Wingard’s single for the final run. 8. P. E. found Cahill's big bat as well as his pitching a continual threat. Cahill scored the first Chi Psi run on an error after he had doubled to center field. He hit safe ly again in the .fifth inning and came home on Robie’s triple. Ganon struck out the next two men and ended the game. Sigma Pi Epsilon .3 3 1 Chi Psi .2 4 4 Batteries: Ganon and Richmond; Cahill and Gant.

Twenty-two Miniature Landscapes By Thomas Hunt Now on Exhibition Selection in Art Building Said to Be of Unusual Beauty in Color and Technique Twenty-two miniatures, each an exquisite dream of western and eastern landscape, are now hanging in the exhibiting room of the art and architecture building. They are the work of Thomas L. Hunt, high ly recommended by the National Association of Exhibitors. Some are in oils, others in water color, yet each, regardless of the medium of work, betrays a technique which, though it may not be masterful, nevertheless is surprisingly effec tive. The subject matter ranges all the way from autumnal southern land scapes to northeastern marines. The marines, especially, carry a ibe witehing atmosphere about them. There there is the usual autumn sketch and the winter scene, each rather pleasing in color. Perhaps the outstanding charac teristic of the work lies in the re markable combination and amount of color which the artist seems to have succeeded in putting in such a small area. Each would be ex tremely interesting if done in the usual size yet the very fact that they are so small lends to them a quaintness that gives an undeni able charm. Loss of Voice Handicaps Cohn As Singles Star Varsity Racqueteers Win Brace of Victories Over Week-end The racquet swinging varsity re turned to the campus Sunday after noon with a couple of victories in Mel Cohn ineir iropny dox and a recqueteer who had misplac ed his voice. Mel Cohn, the afflic ted one, is not on ly seriously han dicapped in his tennis, but he contends for the Jewett oratory prize Saturday. In his match with the Reed college ace, Cohn linished m hue style, taking both sets, but against the Multnomah clubman he didn’t do so well. O’Hara, M. A. A. C., evidently ex pected Cohn to call his shots, but how could he when he couldn’t ev en whisper them? Several times during this match, Cohn couldn’t drawl the polite and noehalant “pawdon me” that is quite essen tial to a successful tennis player. Another angle htat bothered Cohn was ordering his meals. Saturday evening, after the match, he enter ed a cafe on Washington street and through some misunderstanding of the less than half audible splutter ings, the waitress thought that she was receiving a proposal of mar riage. Mel was saved before the j street car crossed the inter-state bridge. Despite Cohn’s present hard luck, Coach Edward Prances Abercrom bie entertains hopes for a rapid recovery. In this case there is no reason to believe that Cohn will not win his share of the matches in the future. He is developing a good fore hand drive and plays the net well, according to the coach. On the other hand, the psychology of meet ing an opponent by th nam of Mur phy, O’Hara, or Callahan, might dis turb the varsity court man. The element of mystery plays a very large part in the Colm-lost (Continued on page three) Appointment Bureau Announces Placing Of Several Teachers The Appointment Bureau of the University of Oregon announces the placing of the following teachers for the coming school year.

Pumping Will Solve Problem Of Canoe Fete Meeting of Fete Committee At College Side Today At 5 o’Clock Positive assurances were givA yesterday that the annual canoe fete will be held this year, Herbert Socolofsky, chairman of the fete, announcing that the break in the waterway near the portage will be repaired so that water may be pump ed into the present parched chan nel. The race will be converted in to a wide lagoon 5,000 feet long on which will glide the floats on the night of May 20 in accordance with original plans. A centrifugal pump with a five inch intake will be used in putting the water into the race from the river. This will be installed below the bulkhead on this side of the break at the portage and will pump nearly 60,000 gallons of water an hour. About six days will be re quired in the filling process, en gineers declared. During this time no water will be taken from the race for university use, univer sity officials announced, in order that fullest cooperation may be giv en the committee. The present wat er level in ihe race will be main tained and the additional water pumped in will give ample depth for the munipulation of the ships of beauty. Meeting of the canoe fete com mittee has been called for 5 o’clock today at College Side Inn at which final arrangements for the fete will be made. These plans will be an nounced at the junior meeting to night. The week-end directorate will .meet in luncheon session this noon and all plans for the week end outlined. Wednesday the com mittee of representatives from liv ing organizations for the canoe fete will convene in Johnson hall at 5 o’clock. Through the various repre sentatives present houses will be in formed of definite plans. At the meetings today and tomorrow com plete arrangments for the week-end will be made known. Socolofsky urges organizations participating in this year’s fete to proceed with plans at a rapid pace in order that everything will be in readiness for the scheduled time as there are but 18 days left in which to work. The committee will cooperate in every way possible with the organizations in the furnishing of music and other features for the floats, he announced. President Hall Poses With Oakland Sedan President Arnold Bennett Hall left for Portland yesterday. Before leaving Eugene, he posed with the 100,000 mile Oakland sedan, that is traveling throughout the northwest at this time. President Hall was photographed with the machine in front of the Administration building, and then added his blessing, to the blessings of mayors and governors, as he left for Portland. Oregon is the twenty second state the car has traveled across. Junior Class to Meet In Villard Hall Tonight At the junior class meeting in Villard hall at 7:15 tonight, reports of all junior week-end. committees will be made. There will also be a discussion of whether or not the junior class will have a picnic this year. Frank Riggs, class president, urges that everyone be present. Oregon Debate j Men to Make World Tour Hempstead, McCroskev, Thompson Chosen To Take Trip Arrangements Pending With Foreign Colleges First Debate to Be With Hawaii University JACK HEMPSTEAD, Benoit Mc Croskey, and Avery Thompson are the three men chosen to repre sent the University of Oregon in its de bate tour which will take them te most of the English speak ing countries of the world. Tryouts were held Saturday morning, all stu dents excepting freshmen were eli gible, and speeches were limited to six minutes. Hempstead The tour will start, according to | present plans, about the first of Oe tober, and the debaters will not |; again reach the Pacific coast until | the following May, 1928. They will leave the west coast and re-enter the United States from across the Atlantic. This is the first time a debate team from the United States has ever undertaken a project of this democratic nature. Consumma tion of remaining arrangements lies with the members who are to go. Mark Taylor Alternate Mark Taylor, alternate, is a jun ior in pre-law and has been a mem ber of the varsity debate team for two years. Hempstead, junior in journalism, vice-president of Delta Sigma Rho, debated on the varsity team for two years, and has repre sented Oregon in oratory two years, having won the national peace ora McCroskey t o ry contest. (Thompson, sopho jmore in pre-law, I was a member of the freshman de | bate team last year, has been a member of the var sity team this year and represented*the University in or atory. MeCroskey is a 3-year veteran debater, two year orator, and presi dent of Delta Sigma Kho. He is a | junior in pre-law. Team Will be Trained James H. Gilbert, acting dean of the college of literature, science, and the arts; J. K. Horner, coach; and Han Clark, dean of the exten sion division, were the judges who selected the members of the team. The three debaters will be trained by J. K. Horner and J. Stanley Gray, oratory coach, until their de parture. They will use the Oregon cross-question style of debate when ever possible. The tour has the support and sanc tion of University officials, and the team members will help finance the trip by working on board ship and wherever possible. Competition will be with the University of Hawaii, * and probably will /include forty j other matches, in Australia, Scot- | land, England, Canada, and the ' United States. There is a possi- j bility of meeting an English institu- ! tion in India and Egypt. Debates Arranged for Unofficial negotiations have been carried on with the British empire institutons along the route, but be ginning next week a contract wi^ be mailed to the proposed oppon ents. The University of Hawaii manager has promised to guarantee $125, Hempstead, general forensics manager, said. The Australia Stu dents Union has practically prom ised six matches with a guarantee (Continued on page four) President Hall to Give Graduation Addresses President Arnold Bennett Hall has been asked to give several com mencement addresses. He will go to Vancouver, B. C. to deliver the commencement address to the Uni versity of British Columbia, May 12. Among other addresses will be the one to a general assembly of stu dents at Vancouver, which Presi dent Klinek of the University in vited President Hall to give. Dr. Hall plans also to give the commencement exercise at Eugene : high school June 2. Let’s Not Dispense With Dispensary THE spring a young man’s steps turn heavily to ward the dispensary,” according to Dr. Fred N. Miller, director of the health service, who says that last week was the heaviest week of the term and Saturday was the busiest day of the week. Dr. Miller attributed this in crease, not to spring fever, es pecially prevalent during this time of year, not to the cases of poison oak which, although very numerous during the picnic sea son have not yet reached a suf ficient number to strike fear to the hearts of mill-racers, but to sprained ankles, colds and other illnesses, as well as the spring fever and poison oak. Horn Leaves for Two Weeks’ Trip To Convention Oregon Man Will Attend Alpha Delta Sigma Conference Calvin P. Horn, president of the W. F. G. Thacher chapter of Alpha Delta Sigma, honorary advertising fraternity, left Sunday to attend the national convefttion of Alpha Delta Sigma at the University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri, to be held on May 9 and 10. Horn, a senior in journalism, is advertising manager of Old Ore gon, alumni magazine. He is also chairman of the publications com mittee and winner of the Portland advertising club scholarship of $150, awarded last spring.

He is going by way of Los An geles and New Orleans to Columbia, but will return by direct route through Salt Lake City and Denver. The trip will take about two weeks. Professor W. F. G. Thacher, of the school of journalism, is a char ter member and founder of the : local chapter.

Lack if sufficient funds, however, usual ly sadly curbs the imagination when ( it gets to wandering into such ELelds. However, at 8 o’clock in the eve ning of May 24, students at the University of Oregon will lie able , to have all the joys of Atlantic ■ City, with none of the attendant ixpense, save a paltry 25 cents! \ 3uch is the promise of the Amphib ian club, which is putting on a , swimming demonstration that eve- i ling. I , The Atlantic City beach is to be, ; die scene into which the women’s . oool will be transformed for this ■ ivent, and there will be bathing ] leauties galore to decorate the icene. A style show, featuring bath- i ng costumes from 1880 on, will be | fiven. : Other stunts, including a wedding i ieremony under water, will be on : die program, as well as form swim- * iiing and diving. i Howard Connaughton To Address Classes \ G.

He will be in Eu- i jene for a few days. i Violators of April Frolic DrawCensure Prominent Campus Figures Get Ultimatum From Disciplinarians Flanagan, Foster and Unknown Caught in Net Money Sought for Damage To Woman’s Building A N ACCEPTANCE of a dare, a A*-mess of jumbled estimates, and the higher education of three cam Flanagan.. pus celebrities fig lure prominently in the latest tid-trit that has caught the fancy of the student body. The tale has : grown out of the ;April Frolic en S joyed a month ago I by campus women. The day of the ^frolic, it seems, the S Emerald ran a. father sweeping challenge to mem bers of the opposite sex to “just try and get in.” Following an all-uni versity men’s smoker held in Mc Arthur court on the same night, a group of students, studiers, and pupils, variously estimated at from 20 to 100, migrated to the Woman's building and proceeded to “crash the gate.” Girls Show Guns The “vandals” got in all right and serpentined the floor while the girls giggled in high glee. Some of the sisters decided the intruders should bt? ejected, and concentrated their efforts that way. The male horde was pushed playfully back, while, it is said, several of the girls brandished toy pistols in the most approved bad man fashion. In the scuffle a pane of glass was broken, a ukelele came up missing, a brass vase disappeared, and a fire ex tinguisher sprouted legs and ran away. Things slipped along for awhile, but yesterday they came to a de cided focus. Procter Flanagan, track captain and star broad jump er, Bob Foster, sophomore president and recent candidate for yell king-, and one more who desires to remain anonymous, although he was elected junior man on the student council last Wednesday, were brought be fore the discipline committee yes terday, and an ultimatum was handed them which wasn't wrapped with any pink or blue ribbons. Ultimatum Delivered Said the discipline committee, ac cording to one of those affected, “That 35 cent pane of glass was worth $5.00, and those fire extin guisher and brass were worth $22.50 in any womam’s building, making a total of $27.50. Therefore, unless said amount is available by Wednes day noon, three young men, now en tered in the University of Oregon, will be skating on thin ice.” The ukelele, claimed tt» be worth $12.00, but actually cost $2.75 when new, according to sales information, was returned with one string brok en, and the owner will not prose cute. Hero’s the grief. The three men implicated were, at the worst, only three of from 20 to 100, and they don’t feel that they should suffer the deficit, split three ways. There fore they have made a plea to those interested in solving the mystery of what goes on at April Frolic to come through with their share of the damages. If 20 assailants were on hand, as claimed by a member of the discipline committee, the charge will come to $1.371A> apiece. If 100 were there, as the men involved be lieve, the bill is $.27x/> per capita. If anyone has the brass vase or the fire extinguisher, they aro urged to return them to Mr. Procter Flan agan or Mr. Kobert Foster, who will restore them. No questions will be asked, or answered. Men involved are urged to contribute their quota to the same receptacles. If any money is left over it will be donat ed to a slush fund to take care of further college boy pranks. Elizabeth Lewis, ’27, To Visit Los Angeles Betty Lewis, who graduated from the physical education school win ter term, left today with her moth er for Los Angeles, where they will stay on a visit until about the mid dle of June. Miss Lewis and her mother are driving south.
