Oregon Baseball
Team Has
Unusual Record
Reinhart Advises Change
In Rules According to
L. McGlook, Listener;
Baseball Summarized
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.

Pitchers’ Battle
Lost by Chi Psi:
S. P. E. 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.

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
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
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

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.

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

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
Calvin P. Horn, president of the
W. F. G. Thacher chapter of Alpha
Delta Sigma, honorary advertising
fraternity, left Sunday to attend

Violators of
April Frolic
Prominent Campus Figures
Get Ultimatum From
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
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
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
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.
