swimming this year. They hope to
have a regular swimming coach
next season.

In the opinion of this writer, the
Aggies have been nutting two and
two together and find that this is
an Oregon year for victory. The
University of Oregon mermen have
been meeting the O. R. C. swimmers
four years without much of a chance
to win. Three of the four meets
were lost to the Aggies by losing
the relay.
Now, for the first time that Ore
gon is conceded to win. the Cor
vallis school pulls the retiring violet
act. The inability to sign Kudin
lias been known for a long time.
After the Oregon-O. R. C. meet in
Eugene last February, which the
Aggies won bv breaking a .14 to 31
tie with a first in the relay, Kuelin
then declared that that was his
last year as swimming coach for
the Aggies. Several other well
known swimmers of the Northwest
have applied for the position and
have been turned down.
Evidently the decision to do away
with swimming this year at O. S. C.
was made overnight. A news dis
patch on January IS says: “Varied
that the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege swimming prospects are good
for a winning team this season.
Kernan Markuson, voluntary swim

•men working under him each after
In regards to the cancellation of
the two meets, Coach Ed Aber
crombie, Webfoot mentor, said: “I
keenly regret the loss of competi
tion in as much as we have been
endeavoring to build up a swimming
team at Oregon for the past three
The Wcbfoots will have plenty of
competition, however. A meet with
the Multnomah club finmen is
scheduled for the Portland tank to
morrow night. Tentative plans are
also being made for a jaunt into
California which will bring Aber
crombie’s men into competition with
the University of Southern Califor
nia, University of California, Los
Angeles, Stanford, and the Univer
sity of California at Berkeley. The
scheduling of a meet with the Uni
versity of California, Los Angeles,
water splashers will be of double in
terest due to the presence of Don
Park as swimming coach. Park
graduated from the University of
Oregon last spring. While on the
campus he was engaged as fresh
man swimming coach.

Although this isn’t razzing day
for the Aggies, there is another
thing we must get off our chest. A
news story in yesterday’s Morning
Oregonian stated that arrangements
had been made between Jack Bene
fiel and Carl Lodell, general mana
gers at University of Oregon and
Oregon Agricultural College, respec
tively, to play two exhibition base
ball games under the Zamloclc plan
as proposed by Carl Zamlock, base
ball coach at the University of Cali
fornia. The Zamlock plan gives the
batter the option of running to
first or third when the bases are
The story goes on to say that
Reinhart and Coleman think the
idea a good one and that the in
novation will revive interest in col
lege baseball.
Well, the funny part of this
story is that Jack Benefiel or Bill
Reinhart know nothing of the ar
rangement. It seems as though the
serious minded Mr. Ralph Coleman
has approached Billy Reinhart on
the proposition several times. The
jovial Mr. Reinhart only sent the
Aggie coach away, telling him that

and student committee in charge,
held yesterday afternoon in the of
fice of Dean Gilbert.
Miss Florence Wilbur, instructor
in drama and director of the tour
nament, who is chairman of the
committee in charge, reported hav
ing received numerous letters from
various parts of the country ex
pressing interest in the one-act play
contest, and seeking information to

It was decided by the committee
to adopt the same general rules and
regulations as were employed last
year, with the exception that schools
participating will have a voice in
the nomination of the judges, none
I of whom will be members of the
[University faculty.
The winner of the contest is to
i receive possession of a cup awarded

Eleven high schools participated
in the tournament last year. Ad
vance information reaching Dr. Dan
E. Clark, secretary of the commit
tee, indicates that this number will
be somewhat increased this year
and that the eastern part of the
state will be represented. Perma
nent possession of the cup, which is
awarded by the members of the
Guild Theater company of the Uni
versity, is to go to the high school
whose players win it three times.

The itinerary is divided geograph

Aim of the students should be to
show in case of infirmary and li

done under extreme difficulties.
This much propaganda is permiss
ible. We can, without apology or
compunction of conscience make
known the basic needs of the Uni
versity. The University has never
asked for extravagant appropria
tions. .An institution with a student
body of 3000 needs a $750,000 li
brary. We have a $70,000 plant. At
the last legislature instead of asking
for what we needed we cut the
legitimate request squarely in two. i

A preliminary game between the

Oregon Orators
Slated To Clash

University Will Compete
In Three Contests;
Prizes Offered
Tryouts for the right to repre

the three oratorical contests to bo
held in the state next term, an
nounced for Saturday morning, have
been postponed to Wednesday, Feb
ruary 1, at 7:.H> o’clock, J. K. Hor
ner, debate coach, announced ves
t erday.
Fach of the contestants should
have an oration prepared'as per
fectly as possible, Mr. Ilorner said,
and he will be called to give at.
least eight minutes of it. Judgment,
will be based on the content and
delivery of the orations. All un
dergraduate men are eligible for
competition, and Mr. Horner is vorv
desirous of having a, large number
of competitors, as there is a short
age of veteran material on tho
campus this year. Avery Thomp
son, Benoit' McUroskey, and Jack
Hempstead, the Oregon World Tour
debaters, have participated in the
stale contests during; the past three
yea rs.
Tho three oratorical contests in
winch the University will compete
this year are the State Old Line
contest, the Stale IYnee contest,
and the National Constitutional con
test. The tirst is sponsored by the
Oregon Oratorical association, of
which the following institutions are
members: Albany College, Pacific
College, Pacific University, Wil
lamette University, Linfield College,
University of Oregon, Oregon Agri
cultural College, Oregon Normal
School, and Southern Oregon Normal
The Old Lino Oratorical contest
will be held in Eugene during the
spring term. The participants may
present orations on any subject, and
the winner will be awarded a bronze
statuette of Abraham Lincoln. The
University lias not participated in
tliis contest since 1926, when Avery
Thompson took fourth place. Since
1900 Oregon has taken five lirsts in
the Old Line contest.
The winner of the State Peace
contest, which will be held in Cor
vallis, will receive a reward of $00,
and the manuscripts of the two first
speakers will be sent east to com
pete with those of the winners of
other states. Last year Donald
Beelar won this contest. In 1920
Jack Hempstead’s manuscript placed
first in tho national competition,
though he was awarded second in
tho state. Oregon has won the
■State Peace contest four times since
The state winner of the National
Oratorical contest will later com
pote for the coast championship, and
the coast winner, in turn, will en
ter the national finals. In 1927
Benoit McOroskejy won the state
contest and placed second to a
speaker from the University of
Southern California in the Pacilic
Coast meet at Corvallis. Jack Mc

for Oregon in this contest in 1920.

Because of tho lateness when tho

Student Body Voters
Decline at Washington
TON, Jan. 26. — (P.I.P.) — A still
waning interest in student body
elections was officially recorded
recently when but 2,990 votes out
of a possible 6,800 were cast at the
annual winter quarter election.
While the figure is 60 votes above
the figure of last winter, which was
considered a poor showing, tho en
rollment of the University has in
creased sufficiently this year to
warrant a larger vote.
