Most recent announcements in
the plans for the Mothers’ Week
end program, which begins on the
campus today, center around the
tea to be given Saturday afternoon
and the special vesper service Sun
day afternoon, according to Luola
Benge, general chairman of the first
University of Oregon Mothers’
The tea, which will be held in
Alumni hall and the sun porch of
the Woman’s building from 3 to 5
Saturday afternoon, will bo given
by both sons and daughters in honor
of their visiti'ng mothers. Miss
Benge especially stressed the invi
tation to the men of the University,
assuring them that they will enjoy
the affair. All faculty folk and
townspeople are also invited to the
tea as guests.
Music by members of Mu Phi Ep
silon, music honorary for women,
will be featured in Alumni hall at
intervals throughout the tea hours,
and will consist" of piano solos by
Mary Clark, Virginia Hunt, Lois
Everson and Bernice Bercovieli;
vocal numbers by Mrs. Harry Scou
gal, Gretchen Kier and Evelyn Dew;
violin solo by Beatrice Wilder; and
a harp solo by Emily Williams.

ether prominent senior women of
the campus will act as hostesses,

Doris Wells, in charge of the receiv
ing line, has announced that the fol
lowing will greet the guests: Mrs.
Arnold Bennett Hall, Dean Virginia
Judy Esterly, Mrs. Frank Chambers,
Mrs. Elmer Shirrell, Mrs. Eric W.
Allen, and Miss Hazel Prutsman.
If the men of the campus who
have their mothers as guests this
week-end cannot be persuaded to
come to the tea by any other means,
the sherbet, wafers, and tea or cof
fee should entice them, the commit
tee believes.
The vesper program has been
planned to begin at 4 o ’clock Sun
day afternoon, in order that mothers
motoring back may leave as early
as possible. The program will last a
half hour. President Arnold Ben
nett Hall will talk briefly during
the vesper service, and Henry W.
Davis, head of United Christian
work on the campus, will preside.
Two selections from the oratorio,
‘“Elijah,” will be presented by the
combined glee clubs and Eugene Ora
torio society under the direction of
Eugene Carr, instructor in music.
Emily Williams will give two harp
numbers, and members of Kwama
will usher. Margaret Nugent is in
charge of the vesper program.
Miss Benge wishes to stress, again,
the fact that students should re
serve seats for their mothers for the
canoe fete, if they have not already
done so, and also that they provide
rooms for their mothers during their
stay in Eugene, as these cannot be
provided by the committee. Stu
dents are also asked to see that their
mothers are registered at the Ad
ministration building this afternoon
or tomorrow morning.

In Accident
Crash Results in Skull

Hilyard and 16tli Streets
Scene of Collision;
Parents Here
Robert J. Moore, Chi Psi, of New
berg, Oregon, died at 12:35 yesterday
afternoon from a double fracture of
the skull and concussion of the brain,
received in an accident at Sixteenth
avenue east and Ililyard street at 11
c ’clock yesterday morning. The mo
torcycle on which he was riding
seutli on Ililyard stieet collided with
a car driven by Miss Harriet W.
Thomson, professor of physical edu
cation,,in the University, who was
driving west on Sixteenth street.
Moore was hurled about 36 feet
through the air from the spor'where
the collision took place before his
head hit a water pipe sticking about
two feet out of the ground. The
force with which he hit. the pipo
broke it off and threw him complete
ly around. He fell against the house
on the southwest corner of the in
Miss Thomson Tells 'Story
Miss Thomson tells the following
story of the accident: “I was travel
ing west on Sixteenth street and he
was going south on Hilyard. I slowed
up for the intersection as I always
do because people travel pretty fast
going out that way. I saw no cars
coining and was just about ready to
put on the speed again when I saw
him flash into sight. I started to
turn my car to the left to keep from
hitting him. It seemed to me that
he tried to put on a little extra
speed to get by. His motorcycle
hit the right front wheel and fendei
of my car and turned it- over. He
was thrown clear over the handle
bars and landed under the shrubbery
around the front of the house. I
got out of the car as soon as I
cculd. I had to climb out of the
window. I rushed right over to
where he was and had some one call
an ambulance and the police. They
came right away and took him down
to the Pacific Christian hospital and
then I went down and stayed there
all afternoon.”
Jackson Tells of Crash
Bob Jackson, senior in tlie Uni
versity, was sitting in tjie \Findow
at his home on the opposite corner
of the street from which the acci
dent happened. He heard the im
pact of the collision and looked out
tc see Moore flying through the air.
He and his mother rushed out im
mediately and then pliontrd for an
ambulance. Mrs. Jackson said that
at first she did not know that there
was a boy in the crash until Miss
Thomson asked about him. The car
driven by Miss Thomson had turned
over on the motorcycle, completely
revering it, and Moore had been
throwh under the shrubbery next to
the house.
Moore was rushed to the hospital,
where he died one hour and 35 min
utes later. He did not regain con
sciousness. Virginia Moore, Chi
Omega, sister of Bob, was- notified
immediately after the accident and
phoned her parents at Newberg.
They caught the next train and ar
rived hero at 3 o 'clock yesterday af
ternoon, not knowing of their son’s
death until they had arrived here.
No inquest will be held on the
case, Coroner W. W. Branstetter an
nounced last night, as it appeared
that no one was at fault. Eye wit
nesses of the accident reported that
Moore, who was traveling fairly
rapidly before he entered the street
intersection, speeded up in an at
tempit to avoid the collision. Miss
Thomson was driving at a moderate
rate of speed, it was said.
Bob was 19 years of age. He was
a sophomore in pre-law. His sister is
the only other child in the family.
He was a graduate of Newberg high
school and three years ago was pre
sident of the high school conference
held here.
Out of respect for their brother
the Chi Psi's have withdrawn from
participation in the junior week
end festivities. The body will be
taken care of by the Finley Under
taking parlors of Portland. Com
plete funeral arrangements have not
as yet been made.
Second Collision Averted1
A seaond serious accident was
narrowly averted at the same spot.
In the confusion attending the ac
cident two ambulances were called
and rushed to the scene. The first
one to arrive stopped dTagonally
across Sixteenth street. A few see

Mary H. Perkins W ill
Help Collect Words
For New Dictionary
Miss Mary H. Perkins, of .the Uni
versity of Oregon English depart
ment, is assisting in the collecting
of words for the New American Dic
tionary, under the direction of Pro
fessor W. F. Ornigio, editor-in-chief,
of the University of Chicago.
Professor Craigie recently complet
ed the Oxford dictionary, the new
English dictionary, published at the
I Diversity of Oxford press. The
book went to the press in March,
i and was the culmination of years of
extensive research and labor. Then
Professor Craigie came to America
and is planning a dictionary, modeled
on the same lines as the Oxford dic
tionary, but having in it only Eng
lish as it is spoken ill America,
since the 17th century. This will
include the “Americanisms,” “col
loquialisms” and phrases peculiar to
various parts of America. The words
will be gleaned from the material
printed since 1620.
Miss Perkins will spend the earlier
part of the summer reading pioneer
material in Oregon searching for
werds, and she will also seek words
from the logging camps and other
language breeding centers. The
word list in this dictionary will be
a tremendously large one, according
to Miss Perkins, and it will proba
bly be years before it is completed.
Decorations On
Prom Near End
Dream Follies Pony Chorus
To Be Feature
The interior Sf the Igloo is fast
assuming the appearance of an im
mense Chinese temple. By tomorrow
evening it will portray as closely as
possible an ancient Chinese place of
worship. A feature of the decora
tions is a giant Buddha. This statue
will stand twenty feet high and is
about twenty feet thick at the base.
It will be surrounded by hideous,
glaring dragons, all lending to the
great effectiveness of the quaint
Chinese architecture.
The pony chorus from the “Dream
Follies” will furnish the feature for
the prom, with two or three good
numbers. The chorus was secured
for the prom by Jane Cochran, in
charge of the feature arrangement.
“The decorations are very likely
to be os much of a surprise to 99
per cent of the junior class as they
will be to the rest of the campus,”
said Ed Winter last night. The rea
son for this statement is the poor
turnout on the part of the juniors to
help in the decorating. All juniors
are urged to go up to the Igloo and
give a little help on the job.
Paul Wagner, who is in charge of
the floor, plans to have an ideal
dancing surface by Saturday night.
The floor is being first cleaned
with gasoline to remove all the dirt
which has accumulated there since
tfie last dance. After the dirt has
been removed, a coating of wax
powder will be sprinkled on the
floor and will be worked over until
a proper dancing surface is obtained.
With Governor and Mrs. Isaac L.
Patterson leading the list, a host of
distinguished patrons and patron
esses have been invited to attend
the prom by Ethel Lou Crane, head
of this committee. The other dis
tinguished persons asked to be pres
ent are: President and Mrs. Arnold
Bennett Hall, Mr. and Mrs. G. T.
Gerlinger, Judge and Mrs. G, F.
Skipworth, Mr. and Mrs. Burt
Brown Barker; Dean and Mrs. John

Today’s Tilt on Diamond
Will Shake Existing
Northwest Tie
Aggies Described as Hard
Hitting; Webfoots Said
To Be in Form
Northwest Conference Division
Won Lost Pet.
Oregon .. 1 1 .500
Aggies . 2 2 .500
Washington . 3 3 .500
The threc-eornere^ tie that exists
between tho northwest division
teams is due to go by the board this
arternoon, w n o n
the Webfoots and
tho Aggies clash
at 1:30 cm Rein
liart diamond.
When the dust
has settled, Oregon
will either be lead
ing the conference
or trailing it. The
same thing goes
for the Beavers.
The strength of
the two nines may
be judged by the
results of the Col
Goliath” Epps
miibia games. Oregon bent the cliff
men during tlm fore part of Ibis
week 15-7 and 0-2. Earlier in the
season O. A. 0. lost to the Irisliers
11-9 in one game but came back in
the second tilt to win 10-5.
Aggies Are Hitters
In the case of the Aggies this
showing may not do them justice,
for they are reported to have shown
considerable improvement recently,
.lorry Calhoun, Washington chucker,
who has pitched two games against
the Ags this season, winning one of
them, believes Ralph Coleman has
the heaviest hitting team in the
conference, which makes up to some
extent for their medi'ocrq pitching
Oregon has apparently hit its
; stride and the boys seem to be find
| ing the apple and socking it with
I great gusto. Ray Edwards is get
ting especially adept at knocking it
into the open spaces. In Wednes
day ’s game with Columbia he con
nected for two homers. And errors?
The varsity succeeded in making
but two in the Columbia tilts, both
in the first game. This is consider
ably different from the 1.1 chalked
against them in the second Wash
ington rampage.
With elouters like Edwards, Epps.
Gould, Ridings, McCormick, Mason,
Gabriel, Robie, and Nelson, ambling
up to the rubber for the Webfoots,
and onion smashers of similar ilk
for the Beavers, in the persons of
Quayle, Belleville, Maple, Hammer,
Logan, and Bauer, taking their cuts,
the game should be an interesting
spectacle to witness. It looks as if
the old horsehide is scheduled to re
ceive some real battering today.
Pitcher a Mystery
Coach Reinhart has not definitely
decided who will start against the
Aggies in the box. “Curly” Fuller
and “Big Train” MacDonald are
both raring to go for the opener
this afternoon. Fuller is the likely
man and will probably get the as
signment, leaving tomorrow’s tilt
in Corvallis for MacDonald.
Cecil Gabriel is apt to get the
call to catch although Tra Woodie
will make a close bid for the job.
Ira has been steadily pressing his
sophomore competitor in the last
week. The chances are good for
Carl Nelson starting on first. Los
Johnson may draw the berth, how
ever, as he has been whetting up his
hitting eyo of late.
Gordon Ridings seems to be out
of his slump. He’s fielding them
and hitting them and he is getting
on speaking terms with his heaving
arm. He will begin at second.
“Rabbit” Robie will cover the short
lot. This snappy little fielder can’t
be budged from his berth.
Third Base Popular
Third is another place where you
have two guesses. One is Don Mc
Cormick, the other is Dave Mason.
It’s nip and tuck between them. Don
has a little the edge at present be
cause Dave is bothered with a sore
arm. Don will probably start on
the hot corner today.
In the outfield Ray Edwards will
cavort in right. In left field Dave
“Goliath” Epps will likely do his
