NUMBER 116 Jupe Pluvius Has Played Havoc With Ball Team ff eh foots Play Today? Varsity Has Futur Ball Reinforcemer, RICHARD H. STRING (Sports Editor) There have been yards of blah ■written about Jupiter Pluvius and his never ending days of precipata non inn it nas ap rarantly been to no avail. If our recollections aro correct it has rainerl practically every day this year. Perhaps Jape, on that cold , J a n uary first morning, copied after our illus trious Cal and I said, “I do not - Jupe Pluvius choose to stop tlie rain in 1928.” Anyway, in the opinion of Coach Billy Reinhart, his Webfoot baseball team and campus fans, J. Pluvius is nothing short of an old reprobate and his perforated rain-can has long outlived its in vitation to stay. Comparing baseball practices with those of the past, Oregon horse hide artists have missed approximaely 32 outside workouts. Not more than a dozen good days have been afforded. Yesterday aft ernoon Oregon’s .first conference baseball game, scheduled at Corval lis with the Oregon Aggies, had to be called off because nothing short of a diluvian downpour settled over the O. S. C. diamond in the morn 211g. If the high potentate of the rain barrel is not quite so contumacious today and relents in the issuance of copious quantities of rainfall, Coach Billy Reinhart and his water-winged, bathing-suited baseball team may leave for Corvallis and play the postponed game. Then, there is an other “if.” Yesterday Jack Bene fiel, Oregon graduate manager, and Carl Lodell, Aggie graduate man f ager, were having somewhat of a squabble over the playing of the cancelled contest. It seems as though Jack wanted to schedule it for May 23 and Carl for today, but if the weather is nice we ’ll bet our slicker tc an umbrella that the game will be played today in Corvallis. * * * While the “gods of rain” were causing frowns on the brow of men tor Reinhart, other “gods” were forcing large, broa8 smiles - on his face. It all come about through the arrival late Monday night of rein forcements for the 1947 baseball team when William J. Reinhart, Jr., weight seven pounds, arrived at the Pacific Christian hospital. Accord ing to Bill, whose face was wreathed in smiles regardless of the damp con dition of the local diamond, the young fellow promises to be a three-sport athlete. At a late date last night it hadn’t been decided whether Reinhart, Jr., would be a right or left handed batter. » * * It looks as though there will be a k new baseball champion in the east ern division of the Northwest sec tion of the Pacific coast confer ence. Washington State, who won two out of a three-game series from the O. S. C. Beavers for the cham pionship last year, were the recip ients of Idaho Vandal spurs last week-end. At the beginning of the sixth inning the Moscow players broke up an even game and won the tilt, 12 to 5. Coach Buck Bailey, Cougar tutor, used six pitchers but was unable to cheek the Vandal onslaught. While conference baseball is just getting started in the Northwest, southern schools are through. St. Mary’s was declared this year’s winner. I won’t be long before the Stanford Cardinals will pack their b;bs and tuckers for a.barnstorming baseball invasion of Australia. Fri day, Coach “Wahoo Sam” Crawford and his University of Southern Cali fornia baseball team start sailing over the bounding; main from San Tedro for San Francisco on the first t Ifg of a journey that will take them through Japan, Manchuria, Korea and the Hawaiian Islands. The tour will encompass approximately 12, 000 miles. High School Heads Are Visitors at University Superintendent F. E. Fagan, of McMinnville, Superintenlent James M. Burgess of Heppner, J. G. Swan, principal at 'Wheeler, and M. E. Pettit, principal of the Smithriver high school at Eeedsport, were visit ors at the University of Oregon ap pointment bureau last week. Dream Follies Will Undergo Few Changes for Portland Showing Special Train To Go Friday and Return Saturday Evening With 70 or 80 Students After tlirce days of relaxation and ?t marred only by the 'inevitable sses, the cast of Dream Follies g ’ ^ in the rehearsal grind again iratorv to staging the show in o xs_ Tiblic Auditorium at Portland, » and 5. The Woman’s building became the scene of dancing , , wild-eyed jungle characters, 1 is and everything that went U up the Follies program. 'ged by the capacity cri at overflowed the Heilig the .... every one of the three performances last Friday and Sat Friday and Saturday, Billy O’Bry ant, director, will make but few changes in the personnel of his cast. Tickets were sold out several hours before each of the programs were presented and standing room was the last resort of latecomers. Efforts will be concentrated this week on smoothing off the rough edges of a few acts. The only im portant change made last night was the abolishment of the soothsayer skit. The men’s chorus will be fea tured in an act with Madge Nor mille, who will sing one of her spe cial songs, “Soft and Sad Music.” The music furnished by George McMurphey and his Kollcge Knights has caused favorable comment to arise from all sides. On the heels of the triumph scored by this group in Dream Follies comes the an nouncement that George McMurphey has signed a contract to play in Los Angeles after school closes in the spring. If it is as lihrd to keep a good bunch down as it is to keep the proverbial good man down, the cam pus may find itself without an or chestra next fall. Who knows? Be that, as it may, the I^ollege Knights will Be one of the featured attractions of the Bream Follies in Portland. Instead of playing occas ional selections ns was the case at the three shows here, the orches tra will play during the whole act whenever music is required. Leonard Thomson and Camille Bur ton, who were instrumental in de veloping and training the pony chorus, were on the job again last night but the ponies fooled them and didn’t forget a single step. For this reason the task of these two directors will be “duck soup’’ as far as hard work goes in the few remaining days before the Portland trip. * At some undecided time Friday a special train will leave Villard hall bearing between 70 and 80 passen gers who will include members of the show, directors and stage as sistants. Then at 9:15 Saturday eve ning this same special wall pull into the Eugene depot carrying the same group, who will arrive in time to keep all dates for formals, informals or whatever may be on the program. Two performances are to be given in Portland, one Friday evening and another Saturday afternoon. Stu dents are asked to write parents and friends who may be desirious of seeing the show concerning all the details. Advance ticket orders may be sent in to the Public Auditorium. The Slierman-Clay Music company will have tickets on sale beginning Thursday and the box office, at the Auditorium will open Friday morn ing. Pre-legal Finals Will Be Tonight Six Men Will Compete For Oratory Prizes •-. t Tlirre men will be given a total of $50 in prizes tonight for giving the best oration in the finals of the Jewett pre-legal English contest to be held in rooi^ 110 Johnson hall at 8 p. m.

Three men will bo declared winners in the order of first, second and third place's. Prizes of $25, $15, and $10 will be awarded to the winners respectively. The six men speaking tonight have been chosen in two previous con tests from the 40 members of the pre-legal English classes. All who are interested in oratory are invited to come to this contest. “The Jewett prizes have usually created considerable interest,” Shu maker said, “because the winners are usually active in student offairs later in their University life.” Dr. Clark To Return From Visit Today I>r. Dan E. Clark, assistant di rector of the extension division and director ■ of instruction by corres pondence at the University of Ore gon, is expected to return today from the thirteenth annual conference of the National University Extension association held at Lawrence, Kan sas, April 25-27. While in the east Dr. Clark visited the extension di visions of the Universities pf Min nesota, Wisconsin, Chicago, Iowa, and Kansas. Dr. Clark’s family will remain for a while in Tacoma, where Mrs. Clark has been visiting her father since her mother’s death, April 21. Fifteen Don’t Pay Fees; Dropped By Uftiversity Firteen students failed to pay their fees before'the deadline last Saturday noon and were^consequent ly dropped from the University. Several of the delinquents paid their fees with cheeks that Were re turned N. S. F. and were treated as though they had not paid at all. Gunman Fires Shots In Holdup at Lundy’s; Captured by Students A man walked up to the cash register in Lundy ’s restaurant at 11:45 last evening and presented a small .32 calibre pistol to Ted Lundy, University student cashier. The bandit stuck the contents of the drawer into a side pocket of his overcoat and started for the door. Ted Lundy protested. “Yeu can’t get away with that,” he said, and jumped in front of the bandit, who immediately fired a shot which went wild and lodged in the counter. Lundy grappled with the man, as sisted by two students, another shot was fired into the floor, and the plate glass door was smashed in the general melee, before the capture was completed. While waiting for the arrival of the police, the stick-up man made another break for liberty, but was quieldy subdued. At the police station, later, he gave his name as Charles Marshall, Texas. He said that he was “broke and desperate.” A large number of University students who were in the place at the time watched the fracas, believ ing it to be more “college comics.” ‘The Ungraded Room’ Of Interest to Teachers “The Ungraded Boom,” a pamph let compiled by*the Bureau of Edu cation Research of the school of education, is just off the University Press. This is a discussion of the problem of educating the subnormal and deficient child to a point where he can take his place in society. A dif ferent educational process is neces sary for this type, according to the pamphlet; one that takes into ac count the pupil’s limitations, and adopts the difficulty of the sub jects taught to their lower ability. Sense and motor training are also more important for these children. The manual arts form the bulk of the curriculum for the more defec tive. The classes should be small, and a great deal of personal atten tion should be given to each child by the teacher, it is pointed out.
