Arnie Kiminki Has Good
Day With Six Assists
THE Oregon Aggie baseball team,
aspiring for the championship
of the western division of the north
•west conference,
ran into a stum
bling block in the
form of the Ore
gon team yester
day afternoon on
the local diamond
and lost 5 to —
(Yesterday’s de
feat places the
Orangemen with
an average of
.571 in second
place to the
league - leading Arnie Kiminki
Huskies’ .625. With another con
gest this afternoon, the Beavers
have one chance to tie the Wash
ingtonians. A lose will place the
Aggies at the .500 mark, only one
game ahead of the Webfoots, and
give them an even break in the
Aggie-Oregon series.
An ability to hit and bunch them
when they counted gave Oregon its
.second conference .game and the
first over the Corvallis Aggies. The
Webfoots started early, and before
the final man had been retired, the
local batsters had garnered 12 of
Glenn Winters’ , choice offering.
While the local nine were finding
Winters with ease, poach Coleman’s
proteges were having a hard time
solving Bill Baker’s slants. Bill’s
underhand ball had the visitors at
sea so only five hits were made. Of
the two runs scored against him,
only one was earned.
Gould and Baker Home
Home runs and excellent fielding
come in for their share to the claim
of victory. Cotter Gould displayed
Babe Ruth tendencies in the first
inning while Pitcher Bijll Baker
was content to make his four-ply
swat in the second. Arnie Kiminki
broke into yesterday’s line-up for
the second time since the last O.
A. C. series. An injured ankle has
kept him on the bench but the rest
apparently did him good. All Mr.
Kiminki did yesterday was to handle
seven chances with only one bobble,
start a double play and made three
putouts. The one error came in the
fifth after Kiminki had fielded two
hard hit balls for outs.
Oregon Scores in First
Oregon scored in the first canto
when Hidings doubled into left field.
He scored when Gould knocked out
a home run into the same garden.
The Aggies made their first counter
in the second after Schulmerich and
Maple flied out. Quayle received
a walk and scored on Dal Ward’s
scorching triple into left field. Bill
Baker’s home run in the second
gave Oregon its third run.
It was the fourth inning that
Quayle’s single over second base
and Mimnaugh’s error gave the Ag
gies their second and last score.
Quayle’s hit went through Mr.
Mimnaugh’s legs and before he
could recover it, the Aggie. short
pateher had crossed the home plat
A short Texas leaguer over second
by Arnie Rimi!nki scored Lynn
Jones who had got on through a
walk. Ira Woodie singled in the
sixth. A well placed sacrifice by
Bill Baker pu^ him on second and
scored when Ridings singled.

Two New Instructors
Chosen for Languages
Two new members of the faculty
of the Romance language depart
ment have been selected by Dr. Ray
P. Bowen, head of the department.
Stella Kastleman, who received her
master’s degree in Romance lan
guages at the University of Cali
fornia this spring, will be a teach
ing fellow in the department next
Helen Crane, a senior in Colorado
college, has been chosen as a grad

Christina Crane, at present a French
instructor in the department.
Dorothy Mielke, New Rosaria Queen,
Junior in Education on the Campus
New Ruler Likes Dancing and Horseback Riding
Good Cook, but Won’t Mend Stockings
By L. F.
Miss Dorothy Mielke has been
chosen Queen of Bosaria to rule
over Portland’s Bose Festival, June
13-18. Dorothy is a junior on the
campus, majoring in education, and
a member of Alpha Onricron Pi.
Since Saturday when her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Mielke of Port
land, came down to tell her that
she had been selected, Dorothy has
been even more smiling and viva
ciuos than usual—and, indeed, who
could blame her?
Dorothy is a brunette, with blue
eyes, dark brown hair, and dimpled
chin. Her skin fs fair, with just a
suggestion of freckles—which any
girl who likes swimming, tennis, and
horseback riding is apt to acquire.
She is a typical college girl, al
ways busy, tout always ready for a
chat with any of her campus friends.
The high school students at Spring
field know her not as “Dot,” the
charming co-ed, but as “Mis Miel
ke,” math teacher.
“I love to drive dad’s car just
as fast as it can go,-’ she declared.
That’s one of my hobbies, and
sketching is another.”
Dorothy loves to cook but does not
relish sewing, at least not darning
stockings—but who ever heard of a
queen mending hose, anyway? She’s
an expert at housecleaning, too, and
rather enjoys it.
Her grammar school days were
spent in Irvington grade school,
Portland, and she is a graduate of
St. Helen’s hall.
Queen Dorothy will receive the
royal crown Monday, June 13, in
Laurelhurst park at the hands of
E. R. Wigging prime minister of
the Eoyal Rosarians. Tuesday she
will officially open the Tose show,
and also honor a number of dis
tinguished guests by raising them to
knighthood in the Rosarians.
The junior pageant presented at
Laurelhurst park by over 1000 Port
land school children, the gorgeous
floral parade, and the day of car
nival festivity will keep Queen Dor
othy busy and happy for the rest of
the week.

tee endeavors,
especially during
the p u m m !e r
months, to get flat socoioisxy
in touch with possible Oregon stu
dents, and aims to encourage high
school graduates of the state to at
tend the University or other institu
tions in Oregon.
State Divided in Districts
Socolofsky’s home is in Salem, a
central location which will make it
possible for him to direct the work
of his helpers easily. Twelve dis
tricts have been mapped out, Port
land being one, so that the state is
thoroughly covered. A new card
system of correspondence to be used
for the first time will be of value,
Beelar explained.
“In choosing a man for this posi
tion I carefully considered several
who have shown marked ability in
initiating, organizing and directing
projects on the campus. I decided
upon Harold Soeolofsky because I
think he has the qualities that will
make the Greater Oregon committee
a valuable institution,” the presi
dent stated.
Junior College Attractive
It is predicted by the administra
tion that the Junior college plan
which will be introduced here in the
fall will attract many freshmen to
the campus.
Soeolofsky has been active in ath
letics, manager of varsity basketball
this year. He is a member of the
men’s glee club, and took a leading
part in the Junior Vod-vil.

Ex-Oregonian Sends
Card From Australia
A postal card was received on the

graduated from the school of jour
nalism in 1925.
Douglas Branch
Blasts Halo Over
West’s Cowboys
New Book in Library Gives
‘Straight Goods7 on
Ranch Hands
A great cowboy myth lias grown
up, and the mythical cowboy has
become a strong, silent manA He
is nature’s “rough nobleman or else
a powerful bandit, a super badman,”
but this popular idea is dealt a
blow by “The Cowboy and His In
terpreters,” by Douglas Branch, one
of the books in the last shipment
received at the library.
In this book, Mr. Branch stands
the cowboy of reality and the one
of popular fancy side by side and
shows the actual cowboy to be a
more interesting person than his fic
titious and aggrandized twin.
“Ask Me Another,” the second
question book compiled by Justin
Spafford and Lueien Esty, is an
other of the new books. It contains
2100 questions and answers.
“Fine Clothes to the Jew,” a
new book of poems by Langston
Hughes, author of “The Weary
Blues,” is the only book of poems
included among the new books. *

ern English laywrights,” a short
history of the English Drama from

‘ • I feel that the entire week-end
was successful, especially the
Prom, ’ ’ said Don Beelar, chairman
of the Junior Week-end. “The Vod
Vil was undoubtedly a show with
superior merit, and worthy of a
Portland performance.’’
“It was regrettable that the term
was so far gone to make this im
possible. I am sincerely sorry that
this year’s junior class was unable
to hold a canoe fete. One realizes
the gap made without this and I
hope that next year it will be pos
sible to have one.’’
Mr. Beelar asks that all chair
men of various Junior Wleek-end
committees hand in their reports as
soon as possible.

Guarantee Asked
Letters which have been sent to
Canadian universities by the gener
al forensic manager request a guar
antee of seventy-five dollars for
single degates from each university
or college met in the United States
and Canada, in view of three facts,
that the men will have completed
an eventful circuit of the globe;
that the undergraduate team is of
an exceptionally high calibre as
may be noticed from their individ
ual records, and that the “Oregon
Plan ’' of debate to be used pri
marily in this country, is an inter
esting innovation.
Will Debate in Hawaii
The men will be in Hawaii and
Manila during the latter part of
October, in New Zealand from No
vember 1 to November 15, in Aus
tralia from December 10 to Novem
ber 20. From December 6 to De

and from then until December 31
in India or South Africa. They plan
to be in England, Scotland, and Ire
land from January 1 to February
25, and in Egypt from February 25
to March 15. Entering the United
States again they will meet univer
sities in the United States and Can
ada from March 1 to May 30.
Will Talk on American Ufa
The Oregon men will be prepared
to make either formal addresses or
informal talks upon contemporary
American life and problem#* and
will acept invitations to appear be
fore societies, clubs, and radio au
A list of questions for debate has
been chosen and sent to schools
along the route, with the debate and
side of the question desired by each
respective institution undetermined.
The questions are as follows: Re
solved, that Democracy is a fail
ure; Resolved, that the prohibition
of intoxicating liquor is not prac
ticable; Resolved, that II. L. Menc
ken is a greater man than George
Bernard Shaw; Resolved, that for
eign nations immediately abandon
extra-territorial rights in China;
Resolved, that the United States
should cancel all foreign war debts.
In addition to these the University
of Oregon will debate the question
submitted by the forensic society of
Delta Sigma Rho for the year 1928
to be chosen later.
Cooperation is being received
from the Oregon State Chamber of
Commerce and the extension divi
sion of the University in the mat

duties which can be accomplished to
advantage en route. By 3uch means
expenses will be partially defrayed.
