    Varsity Nine
Loses 18 to 8
In Aggie Tilt
Oregon Pitchers Not So
Good; Gunther Walks
13 Aggies
Coach Reinhart Uses
Four Hurlers in Vain
O. A. C. Pitcher Lets in
12 Webfoot Hits
NOBODY can say that the Ore
gon varsity baseball team is
not a reciprocating aggregation.
Last term the Ore
gon Aggies de
feated the Uni
versity of Wash
ington’s basket
hall team, auto
matically giving
the Webfoots the
■northwest cham
pionship. Yester
day afternoon the
Oregon varsity
nine lost, not vol
untarily, but by a
18 to 8 score, Jerry Gunther
which throws the Beavers into a tie
with the Washington Huskies for
the championship of the western
division of the northwest confer
ence. The title series between the
Aggies and Huskies will probably
be played this week-end with a
game at Corvallis, Friday, and sec
ond in Seattle, Saturday.
Coach Billy Reinhart used 15 of
his picked athletes to win but it
was to no avail. Four hurlers were
sent to the mound only to have their
offerings nicked for 14 hits. Freddy
West, right hander, started the con
test only to retire in favor of Jer
ome Gunther who proved less ef
fective. Before West’s retirement
the Aggies had set on his pitchings
for six runs. Three of these were
made in the third canto when Scliul
merich knocked a home run into
center field with two men on.
Gunther Walks 13
Jerry-on-the-job Gunther did not
issue free passes to New Monia yes
terday but to the Oregonian’s in
itial sack. When the generous Mr.
Gunther took up his burden in the
third inning there were no outs. Be
fore he retired the Aggie batsmen
it required 38 pitches, 28 of which
went as balls, 9 as strikes and one t<o
a hit batter. Six men were walked in
this canto and three runs forced in.
During Mr. Gunther’s 38 pitches
■only once did an Aggie move the
bat from his shoulder, Wes Schul
merich fouled. Schulmerich and
Ward struck out and Maple was
thrown out at third on a steal. All
told Gunther walked 13 men, struck
out five, hit two and allowed five
safe bingles.
Lefty MacDonald took the mound
at the beginning of the seventh but
retired in the ninth in favor of
Dave Epps. Epps, who has been
playing left field, made his initial
appearance in the box, didn’t do
so bad. Save for a fluke home run
in left field and two scratch hits,
he -weathered the inning nicely.
Webfoots Gamer in 12 Hits
The Lemon-yellow nine garnered
12 hits from Dick Ford, Aggie liurl
er, but could not make them count.
In the second inning Dave Epps,
first man up, drove out a triple but
was not brought in. Cotter Gould
led the Webfoots in hitting with
three singles out of five trips to
the plate.
The Aggies started the scoring
in the second inning when two
singles and likewise the same num
ber of errors gave the Corvallis
team three counters. The third per
iod proved to be an Aggie merry-go
round. Schulmerich homed with
two on and Jerry Gunther, who-re
iieved West at this juncture, walked
three men in.
Oregon Scores in Third
The Webfoots came to life in
the third inning when Gunther
doubled. Dutton singled and Gun
ther scored when Schulmerich’s per
fect peg to home was muffed by the
Aggie receiver. Dutton scored on
Ridings’ fielder’s choice.
Four walks, a hit batsman and
a single gave the visitors three
more tallies in the fifth. The Web
foots scored one in this canto when
Jones got on through an error, then
proceeded to second on another
bobble and scored on Epps’ single.
Two more walks, a double and
single, gave O. A. C. three in the
sixth. The locals retaliated with
one in this inning when Woodie
singled, went to second on Cloves’

In Explanation
IT is not the Emerald’s policy
to take sides in student pol
itics insofar as candidates for of
fice are concerned. It is the Em
erald’s right, and a duty to the
students, to present definite in
formation about the daily when
it is concerned, especially at the
present moment when facts are
being garbled and functions mis
The students understand, we
hope, that today’s election is not
a contest between two university
schools or between the school of
journalism and the students at
large. It lies between a member
and a non-member of the Emerald
staff. There is no other issue.
• * *
Members of the Emerald staff,
on their own initiative and with
out any editorial instigation, have
taken a decided stand against the
non-staff member. Their quarrel,
as we understand it, is not one of
personalities or schools. It is
based on opposition to any move
that would weaken the merit sys
tem that has heretofore prevailed.
These staff members, whose extra
curricular activities center in cam
pus journalistic work, are simply
objecting to the election as their
superior of one who has done no
work at all on the daily. They
do not believe that one who has
had no experience on the Emerpld,
has heretofore had no evident in
terest in it, and has not worked
his way to it should be given the
editorship and the $600 salary at
tached thereto.
• * *
We are sure this is their com
plaint. There are now non-jour
nalism students on the staff, and
there always have been. To any
one of these persons who shows
sufficient merit the journalism stu
dents on the Emerald could be
counted to give their support.
Their interest is not in school or
department, but in experience and
service with the newspaper.
That other matters should have
been read into the controversy is
unfortunate. It should concern
only the competence to fill a par
ticular position, and so far as we
know that is all the students are
interested in. Just as any con
trary opinions would be given
voice, so has the Emerald permit
ted the expression of the views
held by those without whose
wholehearted interest the Emer
ald cannot succeed. We hope the
students will take these views
only in the spirit that was in
The Emerald is keeping out of
print a report of a faculty mem
ber’s effusion because of its like
ly influence on student sentiment
in today’s voting.
Inasmuch as news of the un
usual lecture has probably spread
far already, this explanation of
the omission is made.

tomorrow and will be accompan

ANNUAL report of the director
of the United Christian Work
on the campus, Rev. H. W. Davis,
was given at the meeting of the
board of directors Tuesday, May 17,
at “Horizons,” the home of Mr.
Davis on College crest.
Officers for the past year were
re-elected for the coming year. They

The last “Y” cabinet meeting of
the year will probably be held Wed
nesday noon, June 1, announced Mr.
Davis. It will not meet again until
a few days before school starts in
the fall. The “Y” hut will remain
open for the benefit of summer
school students until August.
Delegates to Seabeck
Interest is centering at present
on securing delegates to Seabeck,
student conference to be held from
June 11 to 20 at Seabeck, Washing
ton. Nearly twenty delegates from
Oregon will attend.
Outstanding advances in the
year’s work were cited by the di
rector’s report. The Lutheran
church has been added to the union
of workers in the university. A
hiking club with over forty mem
bers has been formed, and has taken
several trips to points of interest.
Social events include the Y. M. C.
A. and Y. W. C. A. mix, held in the
Woman’s building in January, and
the Frosh mix, attended by over
100 newcomers. Several events were
sponsored by the Cosmopolitan club,
a Christmas party, banquet, and the
circus, were among these.
Brings Many Speakers
Many speakers were brought to
the university through the efforts
of the United Christian workers
during the year. Among them were
Bruce Curry, Bishop Sumner, Har
old Bowman, and Hugh Black.
Four delegates, Joe Holaday, Bill
Schulze, Christina Holt and Pauline
Stewart, were sent to the National
Student conference, held at Mil
waukee. Deputations have also
been sent to three nearby districts,
and the committee has already made
plans for trips next year.
The annual State Y. M. C. A.
Officers training conference was
held at Eugene, in connection with
the Bruce Curry Bible courses.
Swimming Exhibition,
Style Show, Stunts
Put on by Amphibians
A “Bored Walk,” “Hot Dawg
Stand” with its striped awning; a
beacon with a “Lighthouse Keep
ing” sign on it, a mirrored ball with
twinkling lights, and colored re
flection of the water, made up the
scene of the Atlantic City water
carnival presented by the Amphi
bian club last evening in the tank
of the Woman’s building.
Life saving in 1990, when the
stalwart maiden takes her swain
canoeing—both upset when he re
pujses her advances; and she pulls
him ashore, hoists him up on her
shoulder, and carries him away—
all this was demonstrated to the en
thusiastic crowd.
The style show, featuring bath
ing “gals” all the way from Miss
Seappoose with her elongated bloom
ers, and Miss Junction City with her
gay ’90 costume to Miss Portland
wearing an outfit evidently belong
ing to a fleshy friend, and Miss Hol
lywood, who in her brief silk bath
ing suit almost took the judge into
the pool with her, was the high
light of the evening.
Scenes of a policeman on his beat,
two ladies taking afternoon tea, a
girl enjoying a siesta, a strolling
couple under a parasol, and a danc
ing girl, all on the water at the
same time, were shown among the
Strokes for form and speed, Red
Cross life saving, diving, canoeing
and formations made up the rest of
the program.
The Jantzen Knitting Mills of
Portland furnished the costumes for
the style show.
To Beautify Corpses
Is Convention Cry
PLACING lilies on dead chests
and choosing a casket that
coincides with the corpse’s com
plexion gets in your blood,—just
like being an Emerald reporter,
and you don’t want to stop.
Judge for yourself. At a re- |
cent Portland convention of a
group of funeral directors from
the state of Oregon, one of the
most zealous of those present
proposed that our University be
endowed with enough funds to
establish courses in the science
of embalming and anatomy. If
the proposal carries, all embalm
ist enthusiasts who are now in
the genius state because of not
getting the proper training, will
be enabled to get that training.
Discontented souls who have been
dying for courses in embalming,
all the time they were forced to
major in pre-law or English, will
have the chance to express them
selves in their natural bent, the
“Art of Beautifying Corpses.”
That is, if the proposal is re
ceived favorably.
Every day, in every way, our
university is growing. . . .
‘Charm School’ Given
By Sophomores at
Guild Hall Last Night
By J. J. O ’M.
“The Charm School,” the old
stand-by of high schools in pop
ularity as a commencement play,
was presented last night at Guild
theater by the sophomore dramatic
class in a style slightly above the
prep school standard.
It’s like comparing the scrubs
with the varsity, to differentiate be
tween the qualities of the senior
company and the underclassmen.
Uncertainty of poise with the re
sultant self-consciousness, the ora
torical delivery of linbs, which be
ginners confuse with the finished
technique of acting, might be the
most drastic criticism to be made.
The play, a three act comedy by
Alice Duer Miller and Robert Mil
ton, was well supplied with clever
lines, but a predominance of em
phasis placed on the accompanying
business, left an impression of
Frances Wardner and George
Grimm gave, perhaps, the most fin
ished performances. Miss Ward
ner ’s appearance together with her
stage presence lifted her above the
others. Glenn Potts as Austin Bev
ans, the leading man, had a role
that allowed little latitude for an
exhibition of any ability.
New York Foundation
To Give $50,000 for
Articles on Wilson
The Woodrow Wilson Foundation
has just announced that they will
give a cash prize of $25,000 to the
man and woman who writes the best
article on “What Woodrow Wilson
Means to Me.”
All people in the United States
between the ages of 20 and 35 are
eligible to enter the contest and
the scheme of giving an individual
prize to each man and woman win
ner will likely induce more to enter
than would participate if the prize
was given in one lump sum. The
purpose of the contest, according
to a bulletin just published by the
foundation, is “to bring to the young
people of the United States a closer
knowledge of tho ideals and prin
ciples of Woodrow Wilson: the
I ideals which, in his written and
spoken words, he sought to express
to the people of his own country
and the world.”
The articles will not be judged for
their literary style as much as for
the ideas presented. However, one
caution is made against fulsome
praise, analytical criticism, bio
graphical sketches, and partisanship
for or against the “Maker of His
All articles will have to be at the
office of the Woodrow Wilson Foun
dation, in New York City, by Octo
ber 1, 1927. Those wishing to par
ticipate can get further information

Post Line-up Lists
For Junior-Senior
Breakfast, June 4
Lists announcing the line-up of
the guests and hostesses for the an
nual Junior-Senior breakfast, on
Saturday, June 4, in the Woman’s
building, are now posted in the li
brary, Villard, and the bungalow.
The breakfast is sponsored by the
V. W. C. A., and the juniors act as
hostesses to the seniors. To make
the affair a success, it is necessary
that any junior, who will be unable
to take her guest, notify Miss Ma
gowan or get a substitute to take
her place. Also, seniors whose names
were omitted from the list or any
who cannot be present should call
the bungalow.
The line-up was made in alphabet
ical order, and as there are more
third year women than seniors, many
juniors’ names do not appear. How
ever, they may be called on for sub
stitution if the appointed girl is
unable to act as hostess.
Women have been appointed in
each living organization to handle
the sale of tickets, which cost fifty
cents and admit both the junior and
her guest. Town girls may obtain
their tickets at the bungalow.
Shirley Maguire is general chair
I man of the affair.
