(Sports Editor)
There have been yards of blah

his never ending days of precipata

rarantly been to
no avail. If our
recollections aro
correct it has
rainerl practically
every day this

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
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.

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
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.

Dream Follies Will Undergo Few

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

nounced by Kenneth Shumaker,
English instructor. 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.”

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.

Gets African Inquiry
After traveling all tho way from

came in to the Emerald yesterday
asking for Dr. E. L. Packard’s dis
cussion of the “Trigoniao From tho

to Dr. Packard’s study. He is him
self engaged in describing a vast
collection of cretaceous fossils so
when lie saw an allusion to an asso

sent a request for tho details to
supplement his own observations and
“I am now writing to ask you,”
said his letter, “if you will bo so
kind as to present the part of your
publication containing this paper to
our institution. Any other papers
on cretaceous fossils which your
university may have published
would also be very welcome.”
