World News Events Today Fall Talks on Oil Stock Market Busy Flood Relief Passes ———by United Press_ Tall Says Deal Straight EL FASO, Texas, March 28. The Albert B. Fall defense for the > leasing of Teapot Dome was given today in a copynight Interview given today in a Scripps-Howard newspaper. “They are trying to to prove that it was graft,” Fall was quoted ns saying, “but I made what I thought was a good deal for the government.” “A geological survey had said that oil in the Teapot Dome naval reserve was sealed off by water, and was in no danger of being drained off by seepage,” Fall told the Post. “In the desire to protect the government, I sought the advice of men whom I considered the best experts available. They said there was danger of seepage. Later find ings proved that they were cor rect. They said that I suppressed news about the lease to favor Sin clair but there were others who knew about it. There was nothing to hide.” “I know nothing about the Con tinental Trading Company. So far J as I am concerned, it makes no dif ” ference whether Harry M. Black ^ mer, and James E. O’Neil, oil men for whom the committee is hunting, have gone abroad. I claim that so far as I am concerned, the lease deal was open, above-board, and good business.” Four Million Shares Sold NEW YORK, March 28—For the third successive day, more than four millions of shares of stock changed hands on the New York stock ex change today. Tightening of call money until it was quoted at five per cent, and heavy exports of gold, close observers said, were the ele ments which prevented a total sales, reaching close to, if not over, a five million mark, and they also oper ated to prevent a recover of the losses which leading stock suffered yesterday. General Motors lead the market closely followed by Sinclair oil. Senate Passes Relief Bill WASHINGTON, D. 0. March 28 •—After only 90 minutes debate the Senate today passed the Mississippi flood control bill without a dis enting vote. This set a record for speed in such important legislation, and forecast early action by the house with the probability of com pleted legislation before the ad journment of Congress May 1. The Senate bill calls for no fur ther contributions by the states, in that respect, running counter to the insistence of President Coolidge. The White House principal is ac cepted theoretically in the bill which says that $292,000,000 by the states on levees, can be regarded as a suf ficient local contribution. Trans-Atlantic Fliers Ready BALDONNEL AIRDROME, Dub lin, March 28.—The monoplane Brennan was hauled to the wooden runway early today in preparation for an attempted non-stop flight to the United States. Flares were used to light the air drome and the surrounding field, and the mechanics assisted in pre paring the huge plane for its 3000 mile flight.

Cinder Path Men Will Take Rest Until April After a somewhat heavy schedule of intramural' track meets Oregon tracksters will practically cease ac tivities until the interclass relays 1 April 14. According to Bill Hay ward, both varsity and freshman as pirants will attend to studies the rest of the term, except those who have back work in gymnasium to make up. The cinder path schedule for April calls for three meets, with the in tramural relays in April 21. This tourney will probably bring more men into action than any other in tramural meet of the year. In pre vious years the relays have been very well attended. On April 27 the donut athletes will appear for the last time of the year in an outdoor intramural track j meet. Soon after that the varsity j and the freshmen will start the! schedule of interscholastic meets. j fPrivate Peat9 Scheduled to Speak At Assembly on Popular Address f \ 7ar Hero Makes His ^ First Appearance In City Today old R. Peat, internationally kn as “Private Peat,” the yoi Canadian soldier who became a hi ’uring the World war, makes his . appearance in Eugene this morning, when he will deliver his popular address, “The Inexcusable Lie,” before the student body at the 11 o’clock assembly. In the years following the war—* before such drmaatic plays as Law rence Stallings’ “What Price Glory” appeared—“Private Peat,” the personal diary of the soldier, used to have a prominent plaee in almost overy family bookshelf. Grad ually, people began to see that the only difference between Peat’s story and other dramatic war nar ratives, perhaps, was that “Private Peat” had a redeeming streak of humor. Of the tragedy of war, the Cana dian is well fitted to speak. He enlisted in August, 19i4. He fought with tho plucky regiments that Eng land called across. Once he was severely wounded, and lay on tho battlefield seventy-two hours before being found. His is one of the re markable recoveries of the war, for his right shoulder was blown off, his right arni remained paralyzed /or three years; and his right lung con tains a considerable number of frag ments of explosive bullets. That, according to the story the Redpatli publications tell, is the manner in which Private Peat “got his.” Style and Humor Praised “A rebuilt wreck of the World war,” the Raleight News and Ob server calls him; “no general in shiny boots, but Private Peat, who knew what he was talking about, last night delivered the most force ful and the strangest appeal against war that Raleigh had ever heard. And he did not preach disarmament or unpreparedness ...” Harold R. Peat has come to be recognized as one of the most in teresting lecturers on the chautauqua and lecture stage today. He has traveled and spoken in thirty coun tries. Other newspapers are loud in praise of his picturesque style and the fine humor that penetrates his lectures. He is described as the kind of a man, according tb the De troit News, whoso story “is the per fect plato of a photographic brain.” Lecture Heads Series The lecture is the first in a series of interesting assemblies which are being arranged for the spring term by the registrar’s of fice. The second speaker, scheduled for April 5, is Lincoln Wert, world trayeler, who recently made a tour in the interest of Near East relief. Mr. Wert is a friend of Prof. H. S. Tuttle of the University school of education. Dr. Alan Poster, author 'and lec turer, will be the assembly speaker on April 12. He is a graduate of Johns Hopkins and Yale universities, and has an honorary degree from Brown. During the past eight years Dr. Foster has appeared before dozens of audiences as a lecturer on religion and science. As speaker for April 19, the com mittee is trying to secure Prof. Ed win A. Cottrell, a prominent politi cal scientist of Stanford. Before 1919 he was director of the bureau of governmental research in the political science field and has held various committee positions along the same line. April 26 the assembly is devbted to student body nominations. World Debaters May Talk On May 2, if the University de bating team, now on the home stretch of its round-the-world tour, gets back in time, they will prob ably address the students during the 11 o’clock period. During the assembly hour, May 10, the new officers of the student body will be installed. On May 17, the students will have an opportunity to hear Joel Hilde brand, dean of men at the Univer sity of California, who will be brought here under the auspices of Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma Xi. Mt. Jlildebrand is perhaps best known in the United States as a chemist. The speaker for May 24, the last assembly of the term, is not yet de cided upon. Anderson Will Compete Friday Training Completed by Oregon Swimmer Johnny Anderson, flashy Oregon aquatic star, has nearly finished his intensive training in the east and will be in the best of shape to enter the preliminaries of the National ilnterco llegiate swimming meet in Philadelphia Frl lay night. Since liia arrival in the east, Anderson has •been working un der the expert eye of Ribert Kiphuth, famous Yale men tor, in the large j Carnegie pool of the New Haven institution. Johnny Anderson Unless nn unexpected change in the order of events is innovated be fore tomorrow night, Anderson will be entered in the 50-yard free-style and 150-yard back-stroke events. It was hoped that Oregon’s blond star would be able to compete in the 100-yard dash, in which he was con ceded a better chance to place than in the shorter distance, but the pres ent order of events makes this im possible. Keen competition will, of course, feature in both of the events, but Anderson is given a little more of an edge in the back-stroke than in the sprint, due to his greater com parative ability in this typo of locomotion. Prominent men entered in the 50-yard dash are: Darnell of Michigan, Harrison of Stanford, Wright of Columbia, present nation al intercollegiate title holder, and Bryant of Dartmouth, who has won every 50-yard raee but one in which he entered this year. Johnny’s sev erest competitors in the back-stroke are: Hinch of Northwestern, Hubble and Spindle of Michigan, and Driggs of Stanford. ] Several telegrams of encourage ment were sent tp Anderson today, ind word of his success in the pre liminaries is expected to be received some time Saturday. -- Marriage Announced By Former Students Miss Szwa Leung and Mr. Hung Fai Chung, two former University 6f Oregon students who received degrees last June, and who were very well known on the campus as inse parable pals of'diminutive size, but pleasing personalities, announced their approaching marriage in a let ter from Hongkong received re cently by Mrs. Charlotte Donnelly, dilector of student employment on the campus. During her one year in attendance at the university here, Miss Leung lived in the home of Mrs. Donnelly, and she expressed great interest in her Eugene friends. The date of the marriage is set for March 30th. Accompanying the letter from the ycung people were two small, deli cate, silken tapestries of exquisite Chinese workmanship, gent to Mrs. Donnelly as tokens of friendship. One paragraph of the lotter tells of plans for the marriage. Miss Leung writes: “We are going to marry on the 30th of March. Wo follow part of the Chinese custom. Surely we are sick of the troublesome cere mony, but as it is a way to please our parents, we just go ahead and do it. We don’t kjow exactly where we will make our home. It all de pends on Chung’s work.’’ Miss Leung transferred to Oregon from Mills college and was a major in economics. Mr. Chung completed four years here as a business admin istration major. He has many influ ential connections in Hongkong and Shanghai and plans to enter finan cial work in connection with for eign exchange banking.

Cookery One Taggitig Suffices For Parkers, Asserts ‘Dad’ Emery, ‘Guard’ “Dad” Emery, for seven years University night watchman, has a new job—and likes it. According to “Dad,” few college men have to be “tagged” more than twice. No, his new duty isn’t to amuse the youngsters with that age old game we all know, but. rather to put little cardboard slips on autos that are parked on Thirteenth street when they should be some place else. “Dad” is all for the new ruling of no parking on Thirteenth. He says, “I want all to know that this is good, as it will mean added safety to 3,000- students. Approve of it—you bet I do.” University people have been splen did in their cooperation so far, and the number of tags is decreasing daily. Who knows, “Dad” Emery may soon bo seeking a now job teaching students of other univer sities how to play tag as it is played at Oregon. Medical School Receives Pledge General Education Board Makes Payment A certified check for $35,599.39, the second installment of the $130, 006 gift to the University of Ore gon medical school from the General Education Board, has just been re ceived by L. U. Johnson, comptroller 'of tho University. A check for $50, 000 was sent shortly after the an nouncement of the award last April. A balance of $44,000, making a total of $130,000, will be sent to tho University later. The entire sum is to be used for research purposes and for the ad vancement of medical science at tho medical school. Granting of this substantial sum by the General Edu cation Board is held to bo high recognition for the school, it is stated by Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, president of the Univorsity. , The sum of $130,000 is stipulated for definite purposes. It will enable ; the school to expend $63,00 pn ' equipment on tho medical school, Doornbecher Memorial Hospital for bhildren, Multnomah County hospi tal and tho Portland Free Dispen sary; $57,000 for payment of sal aries, particularly for research; 14,000 for library additions, and $6,000 for travel of full time pro fessors. In 1920 the board mado an ap propriation of $163,000, making a total to date Of $293,000 from this source. Splendid cooperation and support accorded the medical school by the people of Oregon is given as the principle reason for the gener ous bequests of the board. The last gift from the board came as a result of direct contacts made by Dr. Hall while in the East. He is now on an extended trip, during which he will confer with officials of several other foundations. He will point out the needs of the Uni versity so that appropriations can be made when funds are available for this purpose. Bruce Dennis Sends Oregon Dads Letters Follow-up letters were sent to the Dads of Oregon during spring vacation by the president of the Dad's Day organization, Bruce Den nis. It was to serve as an explana tion of the Dad’s organization which was formulated at the Dad’s Day meeting of January 28. The letters explained the purpose of the permanent organization as one of helpfulness to the Dads of Oregon to acquaint them further with the doings of their boy or girl at the University. A report of tho firBt annual meet ing of the Dads of Oregon was also enclosed with the letter. The gen eral committee of fathers of Ore gon students, which was selected at random from the state at large was listed. The executive committee which was appointed was also list ed. The next general meeting will probably be held next fall on the occasion of one of the football games in Eugene, the executive com mittee to fix the date. Extracts from the address given by President Arnold Bennett Hall’ at the Dad’s Day banquet was en closed in a booklet form with the other material. President Hall ex pressed his wish for the dads to per fect an organization permanent in character, and based upon the com mon interest of all the fathers.

Bill Havward •/ Plans Oregon Track Season Relays With Beavers First on Webfoot Schedule Actual Training Started To Develop Power of Cinder Team By .TOE PIGNEY With the track season but threo weeks away, Bill Ilaywartl, Oregon head coach, will start an intensive trainiing program to condition tlio team for tlio first relay meet with the Aggies here, \April 21. This meet with the Beavers will display both the individual and the team power of tlio Webfeet, giving Hayward an ex Bill Hayward cellont opportuni ty to select a squad for tho Univer sity of Washington relay carnival at Seattle on May 5. Tho pre-sea son outlook indicates that tho Ore gonians’ point-making chances aro fairly bright, and as tho season develops soino good material will probably come to tho front. Shuttle Bace A feature of tho relay meet with O. S. 0. will be the high hurdle shuttle race, Prom the onlookers point of view this race is ono of tho most spectacular events iii track. The hurdles aro placed di rectly in front of the grandstand, ami the baton exchanged alternate ly at each end of the row of 10 hurdles. This will bo the first timo the race has been introduced on Hayward field, and if it proves suc cessful it will probably become a regular event. Two medley races, one for sprints and tho other for distance, have been scheduled for the Aggie meet. Two men running 110 yards, one running 220 yards, and the fourth running 440 yards will composo tho shorter course. Tho distance raco will be made up of two men run ning the, 220, and one each on tho 440 and 880 yard runs. Five other relays ranging from the 440 yards to 4 miles wijl bo rup off. Training Buies Stresed Bigid rules of training were stres sed by Hayward at a recent meet ing of track men at McArthur court, and in order to make the Web foots ono of tho strongest squads in the northwest strict observation was pledged. Tho hardest work of the season is the preliminary train ing. After the relay meet at Seattle, the team will bo in mid-season con dition and tho work for tho rest of the year will bo merely to keep ir form. Competition for positions is keen er this year than it has been for several seasons. Last year somo of the Webfoot stars wero handicapped in conference meet by tho lack of competitive work in practice. This year, however, Hayward expects greater developments to como from the preliminary work . Group Practice Starting today tho track candi dates will work out in groups in order that each man will have tho opportunity of special attention to his own event. Track is primarily nn individual sport with each event independent of tho other. Each racer must devote direct practice to his own event, and it is with this in mind that Hayward made tho divi sion. The inter-class relays on April 14 and the inter-fraternity track meet on April 21 will serve as condition ing work for tho varsity Hucksters in preparation for the actual confer ence season. Schedule The following is a complete sche dule of the Webfooters’ track sea son: April 14, Inter-class Belays; April 21, Inter-Fraternity Track Meet; April 27, Belay Meet with O. S. C. at Eugene; April 28, Oregon State High School Belays; May 3, Frosh Book Belays at Corvallis; May 5, University of Washington Belays at Seattle; May 11, Oregon and Wasli Oregon vs. Washington at Eugene; ir.gton Freshmen at Eugene; May 12, May 18, or 19, Oregon vs. W.
