Frosh Stage Revolt at
Annual Tug of War
At the annual sophomor'e-frosh
Junior week-end tug of war staged
Friday morning as one of the open
ing events of the week-end pro
gram, the freshmen reversed tra
dition and staged a short lived re
volt. A number of them, armed with
yellow paint, attacked a group of
sophomores and managed to splash
the paint generously on the second
year men, before the revolution was
quenched as the green li(lders were
tossd into th mill race for an an
nual cold bath.
Members of the class of 1931 joy
ously tossed their green lids, symbol
of their inferiority, into a blazing
tonfir! yesterday morning after the

Oregon Defeats
O.S.C. Men, 9 to 6
Gould’s Triple Hit Breaks
Up Baseball Game
(Sports Editor)
Cotter Gould, pinch hitting for
Harry Dutton in the seventh inning,
turned tables on the Oregon Aggies
yesterday after
noon, and gave
Oregon’s varsity
baseball nine a. 9
to 6 victory on
Reinhart field.
Playing before the
largest and wild
est bunch of base
ball fans as
sembled this sea
son, Gould made
the Junior week
end program one
of more joy, wlion
he lifted 'one of Cotter Gould
jVTr. Bill Cloyes’ pitches for a triple
into right field. At this particular
moment, such a blow was needed
more badly than water is for a
canoe fete.
ITp to the seventh inning, Oregon
was on the short end of a 0 to 4
score. Billings opened the canto
with a single but was out at second
on an attempted double play when
Epps grounded to Quavle, Aggie
shortpatcher, McKenna taking the
ball on an attempted double play
overthrew first and Epps was safe.
Epps went to second and Edwards
hit into what was apparently a field
er’s choice. But Bemmel, Beaver
third sacker, didn’t make his choice
in time. He took the ball from the
shortstop, with Epps coming down
to third,, apparently thought it was a
force play and merely touched the
bag and then threw to second. This
left Epps safe at third, Edwards on
first, and let Mr. Bemmel out of the
contest in favor of a Mr. Wood.
Epps scores
Epps scored when Woodie ground
ed out. McCormick walked. At this
juncture Coach Billy Reinhart play
ed a hunch and sent the now famous
Mr. Gould in to pinch hit for Dut
ton. Gould let several pitches go
and then neatly kissed one for the
row historic triple, scoring Edwards
and McCormick. Gould scored on
Johnson’s single. All told, the var
sity counted four runs on three hits
in this inning.
Curly Fuller started on the mound
for the Webfoots yesterday but poor
control and some sloppy catching on
the part of Cecil Gabriel put him in
the hole, early in the fracas.
Two walks and a single gave the
Beavers a one-run send off in the
first. Oregon scored in the same
frame when Ridings knocked a high
fly into left, which Logan juggled
and let roll by. Ridings made the
entire trip around the circuit while
Logan was recovering. Oregon’s
second score came in the second
ppriod when McCormick singled,
Dutton sacrificed, Johnson walked
and Robie singled, McCormick scor
Aggies Score
Five hits in the fourth by the Ag
gies scored four runs. A double by
Maple and a long sacrifice flv by
Torson gave the Aggies their final
run in the fifth inning. Oregon scor
ed one in the fourth when Woodie
singled, McCormick hit a slow one
over first base and Woodie went to
third. He scored on Johnson’s sin
gle. Dave Epps ’ home run in the
fifth chalked up one more for the
Webfoots. Besides the big run spree
in the seventh, a home run by Rey

Californian May Be
Olympic Weight Man
DOS ANGELES, May 10—(P.I.P.)
=—A young student of the University
of Southern California is apparently
bound for a trip to Europe if the
United States has a weight lifting
aggregation in the Olympic games,
Norman McFaddan, the youth in
question, having recently performed
so brilliantly in the heave and ho
sport that followers of the strong
plan’s art believe he is now among
the leading men of the country in
his weight.
McFaddan, who competes at 148
pounds in the lightweight class, re
cently took second to Arnie Sund
berg, Multnomah Athletic club of
Portland star, in a qualifying tour
nament preceding the expected
Olympic tryouts. Although Sund
berg is one of the best in the coun
try, McFaddan has a good chance,
his followers say, of beating him
the next time they meet, as the
qualifying contest was the Southern
California boy’s first experience in
competition and as he has bettered
Sundberg’s winning marks in prac
New Monthly Paper
Appears on Campus
A new rival for the New York
Times and the Little Emerald, ap
peared on the campus yesterday
when journalism students were seen
glancing through the pages (four
cf them) of the Shack Spirit, a
monthly house organ now being
issued by the students of Professor
George T. Turnbull’s elementary
rewswriting class.
The paper, a four-page five-col
umn publication, was written, edi
ted, and laid out entirely by the
class students with the assistance
of Professor Turnbull. The type is
similar to that used in the Daily
Biographical sketches of class
members, interviews with prominent
campus journalists, magazine and
book reviews, a historical review
cf the Daily Emerald, and several
other articles of journalistic inter
est, appear in the initial issue of
this miniature house organ.

Oregon-O.S.C. To
Clash on Courts
Northwest Title at Stake
In Tournament; 9:30
The northwest tennis champion
ship will be at stake in a match at
9:30 o’clock this morning, between
the Oregon and the Oregon State
varsity teams. A win for Oregon
cinches the title, but if O. S. O. wins
they may take the championship by
defeating Washington. Oregon de
feated Washington last week.
Henry Neer, Oregon No. 1 man,
will probably play Spcros, 0. S. C.
star. Neer is expected to win Iris
match by a good margin, since he
holds victories over some of the best
intercollegiate racquet men on the
Howard Shaw will play second
man for Oregon. His opponent will
probably be McGrew. Clair Hart
man and Richard Edge will play
third and fourth places respectively
for the varsity. Klahn and King are
the Oregon State third and fourth.
In case a fifth singles match is play
ed Tilman Peterson will play for
Doubles Groups Named
Doubles for the varsity will be
Neer and Hartman, Edge and Shaw.
The Oregon team has thus far won
two meets and lost two, conference
and non-conference. On a trip to
California the team dropped tourna
ments to Stanford and California.
The California match was close and
though Oregon lost 5-1 with Stan
ford, Neer, Oregon No. 1 man and
last year Pacific coast intercollegi
ate singles champion, defeated Her
rington, Stanford first man. Her
rington is seventh in national inter
collegiate rankings.
The two wins were from Wash
ington and Reed College. The score
of the Washington meet was 5-1 and
the Reed men were swamped 6-0.
An exhibition match featuring
Bradshaw Harrison, Sherman Lock
wood, Stanley Almquist and Henry
Neer is to follow the Oregon-O. S. C.

scholarship committee show a small
er nuhiber of disqualifications during
the first two quarters of the current
school year than for the correspond
ing two quarters of last year.

Architect’s Drawings
From Harvard Shown
An architectural exhibit from the
Harvard University department of
architecture, is now on display at
the little gallery on the campus. The
collection includes line and wash
drawings and winning entries in var
ious* architectural competitions.
Some of the projects are master’s
degree theses. One of the most un
usual projects is the design for a
theatre curtain. It is colorfully
exotic. Designs for a boat club and

‘A Niglit in Pekin’ Will Be
Opened Tonight at
Igloo; 9 o’Clock
Festivities of tlie first day of
Junior 'Week-end are over and atten
tion is now being centered on tlio
athletic and social events which are
scheduled, for today. Tho Junior
Prom at the igloo tonight will bo
the social climax of the annual
campus celebration. Ticket sales
indicate that the dance will bo the
biggest of the school year.
A Chinese temple decorated with
a giant Buddha,, twelve huge and
glaring dragons and realistic orien
tal designs of architecture, will form
tho setting for the Prom. “A Niglit
in Pekin” is the name given tho
affair, and everything from the
orchestra platform to tho oriental
booth where refreshments are to be
served, will tend to enhance and em
phasize the idea.
Decorations Chinese
As the dancers enter the immense
room through one of four Chinese
arched entrances, they will see tho
great imago of Buddha arranged in
one end, with the mythological
dragons surrounding him and staring
antagonistically at all intruders. In
tho center of tho room, will bo an
elevated Chinese pagoda, cleverly
decorated with lanterns and garden
A massive, gabled ceiling will
cover the entire room. This will
also be constructed in representa
tion of the peculiar and characteris
tic architecture of the far eastern
nation. One section will bo devoted
to a Chinese booth, where refresh
ments will bo served the crowd
throughout the evening. Black
cloth will completely surround the
area, except where arrangements
have been made for visiting mothers
to watch the dance from the bal
Pony Chorus Feature
George McMurphey and his Kol

The Pony Chorus, fresh from its
success in the Bream Pollies, has
been secured to put on tho feature.
A list of distinguished patrons
and patronesses have been invited
to tho dance, including Governor
and Mrs. Isaac L. Patterson, as well
as a number of members of tho Uni
versity faculty.
Announcement will bo made dur

Koyl and Gerlingcr cup awards,
given each year to tho best all

year Benoit McCroskey and Esther
Hardy were tho winners of the cups.
Tickets To Be Sold
Those who have not yet bought
tickets may get them at the Co-op
or from the various representatives
appointed in the men’s living or
ganizations. The dance will bo
formal, as in past years, but nobody
will be ousted for failure to wear
the conventional soup and fish, an

Adalia Everts, chairman of the
decorations committee, deserves spe
cial commendation for her clever
and persistent work in connection
with the decorations, according to
Ed Winters. The juniors have not

the appeal for help and the main
burden of the task has been carried

And Cop Ducked at
Campus Luncheon
Bang—ami another redskin bit. the
—water. The water fountain, an
nual recipient, of many bad freshmen
on campus day of Junior Week-end,
has received its official sanction.
Jack Benefiel, graduate manager
was the perhaps fortunate and per
haps not so fortunate sanetioner.
The campus luncheon crowd was
listening to Madge Normile sing
blues’ songs, when a loud yell went
up and a stampede toward the foun
tain started. Most of the crowd
were accorded the privilege of see
ing Graduate Manager Benefiel,
make his way from the baptismal
font, a wetter and perhaps wiser
man. A great roar of pleasure went
up. Soon, an even greater roar wont
out upon the air. A cop, who has
been tagging cars parked upon
Thirteenth street, was thrust into
the fountain and emerged dripping,
but good natured.
And, satiated with the treatment
meted out to the two men, the crowd
went on its way, happy.

Hendricks Hall
Float Winner
Tri Delts, Sigma Pi Tans
Place Second With
Symbol Ship
Out of the mouth of a fantastic
ice cave came St. George engaged in
mortal combat with the legendary
dragon. So realistically and beauti
fully was this idea presented that
the judges decided last night to
award it first place in competition
with twelve other floats in the an
nual canoo festival of Junior Week
Hendricks hall and Bachelordon
were the two organizations receiv
ing high honors for their contribu
tion. The float showed St. Gcorgo
mounted on a glistening wliito horso
fighting a death duel with a hideous
dragon. The idea was carried out
perfectly and the capacity crowd of
4500 people, which filled the bleach
ers, gasped with admiration and
astonishment as the float came by.
Pearl Second
Second prize went to Delta Delta
Delta and Sigma Pi Tau whoso con
tribution, “The Allegory of the
Pearl,” made the judges’ decision
exceedingly difficult. This float
showed eight galley slaves crouched
at their oars and guiding the des
tinies of a maiden, sheltered by a
shell in the stern, who was sym
bolical of the “pearl.”
Honorable mention went to “A
Chineso Junk,” entered by Alpha
Chi Omega and Phi Gamma Delta;
“Lily Sprite,” Alpha Xi Delta, and
“Lohengrin,” Alpha Delta Pi and
Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Theso floats
Were given mention in the order
Decorations Add Beauty
Tho decorations provided for the
occasion added considerably to the
beauty of the entries. Whether they
depicted tho phantom atmosphere for
which the feto was named is a mat
ter for question, but nevertheless
they harmonized with tho floats re
gardless of tho designs used. Tho
mouth of an ice cave showing a por
trayal of Mount Fujiyama in tho
background was tho setting, and
through this tho floats emerged
gliding into tho greenish waters of
the millrace. Lights underneath tho
surface of the water added a soft
illumination effect to tho whole
Between every three or four floats
would bo presented several musical
features, which kept tho program
varied and interesting throughout.
According to tho comment expressed
by certain faculty members, the fea
tures were far superior to any that
have ever been presented at tho
Kollegc Knights Begin
George McMurphey and his Kol
lego Knights started things off in
tho right channel by playing a num
ber of current selections. Then a
diving act presented by Monte
Stone, Bon Neer, Virginia Louns
bury, and lone Garbo, all University
stars, preceded the first float.
Madge Nonnila won tho most gen
erous applause and was encored four
times beforo she was allowed to
leave. Marjorie Clark, Jo Ralston,
and Louise Storla, tho girls’ trio
from the Dream Follies, and the
Kollego Knights’ trio also enter
tained with several songs.
Due to tho recent death of Robert
Moore, the Chi Psi and Kappa Alpha
Theta float was not shown. This
omission was made by the Chi Psi’s
out of respect to tho death of their
fellow member.
One Float Weakens
Only one accident occurred to any
of tho floats during the evening.
“A Chinese Junk,” which won first
honorable mention, had just barely
passed the reviowiiig stand when the
framework began to give way and
before long the participants on the
float wero saving themselves from
a watery grave. Patrol canoes
rushed to the scene of the mishap
looking for a chance to become a
hero, but all the unfortunates could
swim, thus ending this episode. No
damage was done outsido of a few
spoiled costumes worn on the float.
Tho judges of the winners were:
