Students Must
Pass 10 Hours
' o
vallis toda
Faculty Sets Junior, Senior
Scholarship throughout the Uni
versity of Oregon will be materially
raised starting next term, due to ae
Mn taken by the faculty yesterday.
New regulations, which will result in
dropping poor students much more
than at present, were adopted. These
are particularly strict in the case of
upper classmen.
The new regulations will practic
ally abolish the present “probation”
period for juniors and seniors, and
instead students who would be plac
ed on probation due to poor scholar
ship will be dismissed, or dropped
for nine months. Under the old rule
students were required to pass in
seven hours to remain in school, and
in nine in order to keep off proba
t'on. Juniors and seniors must now
pass in ten hours or be dropped.
The new ruling is a bit more lem
cnt for freshmen and sophomorW.
They are allowed a probation period
if they make five hours but less than
10. Less than five hours drops them
from the university as usual.
The probation ruling is also Tiglit
.ened up. At the present time stu
dents must make enough hours dur
ing the term they are on probation
so that the total for that term and
the preceding one totals 17. Under
the new regulations students must
make 12 hours, regardless of the
number made the term before.
While on probation students will
not be allowed to participate in any
student activities, as L^fore.
Students who “flume out” may
petition for re-instatement nine
months later. If re-admitted they
will have to be on probation for one
term and fulfill requirements re
quired of these students.
The new regulations, which are
drastic compared to the old, are in
line with standards now being
adopted by other coast universities.
Tl is expected that more students
will “flunk out,” especially during
the first two years, but a general
raise in scholastic work is certain,
those who have made a study of the
situation declare.
The regulations passed the faculty
by unanimous vote.
Last Night’s 'Elijah9 Presentation
Proves Magnificent, Inspirational
“Elijah” was magnificent and
inspiring! The conductor was com
^ petent, the chorus was “thrilling”
(Rollin Pease himself said so), the
soloists were of the very finest, the
accompaniment was excellent, and
the audience was appreciative.
Last night’s presentation of the
Mendelssohn Oratorio, “Elijah,” in
the school of.music auditorium, es
tablished a new record of achieve
ment for the Eugene Oratorio so
ciety which was organized and di
rected (most mbly, too) by John
Stark Evans. The soloists were all
enthusiastic about the chorus;
Franklin Biker said it had a won
derful spirit, and Roland Pease ob
served that it^ possessed the four
essentials: a balance of men’s and
women’s voiees,- instead of the usual
feeble representation of male voices,
fine unison and a quality that re
vealed no squeaks or strains, accu
rate attack' of the score, and the
qualities of youth and verve. Not
much more could be said about any
chorus, and the praise belongs to
John Stark Evans, -who has so faith
i fully and carefully trained it.
Boland Pease as the prophet Eli
jah, lived up to the reputation which
preceded him here, of being the
Northwest’s finest baritone. His
I voice is deep and full and mellow,
with a wide range, easy delivery,
and remarkable tone gradations. He
sings with a great deal of power
and feeling, as though he really en
! joyed it, and at no time does he
refer to a score. Jane Burns won her
audience in her first measure with
a voice of unusual sweetness, singu
larly free from breathiness. Her

Our Round-the- World Debaters'
Will Relate Experiences Today
If tliero is any significance in the
number proposing to attend, the
gymnasium of the Woman’s building
will be crowded this morning when
Oregon’s Round-the-World debaters
take t^ie leffure platform during the
regular assembly, in that stirring,
globe-trotting episode, “Around the
World in Sixty Minutes.”
And they want it distinctly under
stood that this lecture, combined
with the movies to beSshown at 7:30
tonight in Villard, will consti
tute the first propaganda introduced
on this campus towards doing away
permanently with the nuisance of
bookish history and geography
courses, and substituting travelogue
movies and yarn spinning, instead.
Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines—
grass skirts, laiis, teacups and water
buckets, will all take added meaning
under the eloquence of Avery
Thompson, who will have the floor _
for the first twenty minutes. He
will tell what the three students did
luring those first home and sea-sick’
lays on the Pacific.
Secondly, the audience will be
swayed by Jack Hempstead’s volu
bility concerning China, India, Pal
estine, Egypt. He will toll of their
experiences in peering around at tho
Pyramids, and the royal time they
had visiting King’s Valley. Some
of these* experiences are already
familiar to Oregon students, through
the pages of tho Emerald.
The last third of tho hour will be
likewise filled with the thunder of
Benoit MeGroskey, who will discuss
thoroughly and fundamentally, the
moral, cultural and economic back
grounds of Italy, Switzerland,
France, England, Scotland, Ireland,
and the United States of America.
It is rumored that ho will perhaps
illustrate tho Swiss yodel and the
Highland Fling, as veritable proof
that the three have been to theso
Sunburnt and sophisticated, the
Round-the-World debaters wander
about the campus these days (what
timo they are here), while their ad
miring colleagues look enviously at
their travel worn features, and
thank the Powers that among the

Emerald Award To Go
To Senior Who Has
Best General Merits
Originality, brilliance and strength
of mind will be the qualities con
sidered by the honors council in
making the Emerald award, accord
ing to C. Y. Boyer, chairman. This
is the first time the award has been
given. It is unique in that the stu
dent, instead of receiving cash, may
select $50 worth of books.
A bookplate will commemorate
the award, and impressions from it
will stamp the flyleaves of the se
lected books. It is now being de
signed by Abbot Lawrence, senior in
art. The plate itself will be re
taincd by the University and used
in succeeding years.
Following a plan used at Prince
ton, the dean of each department
will be asked to submit the name of
the senior he considers most out
standing in his department. The
individual may be a man or a worn
an, but must be a senior. The hon
ors council will make the final deci
sion. The winner of the award will
be announced at commencement

ning of May 4 and a matinee or

and be at Villard hall in plenty of
time, for the train cannot be held
up for anyone.

diately following the ten o ’clock
