Co-eds Best Men As Per Usual in Grade Averages Women Make 3.01; School Scholastic Medium 3.26; Upperclassmen Rate 2.89 Again last term, women students routed the men in a contest, for grades. Women, as a whole, made a .'1.01 average; whereas, the average for all men was 3.45. Those averages were announced with the fall term grades late yes- i terdav evening by the registrar’s office.

Not a red pent, nor a yellow one for that matter, to her name, and hundreds of miles from home. That is the plight Miss Katherine Bailey, secretary to Bean Faville of the school of business administra tion, found herself in one night two years ago while she was staying at the Yellowstone hotel in Yellow stone National park. Miss Bailey, who had been attend ing the University of Chicago, was taking a trip during her vacation. She, in company with a friend, stopped at the Yellowstone hotel. Tn the evening they started out to go visiting, but discovered when they tried to pay the bus fare, that they had no money. Returning to the hotel, Miss Bailey discovered that all her money had been stolon from her bag. She ! had left Chicago on such short no tice, that she hadn’t had time to get traveler’s checks, and had car ried a considerable sum in currency with her. Her companion was more fortu nate, having hidden her money in two different places. Half of it was gone, the remainder was suffi cient to take her back to Chicago. Miss Bailey “wired dad,” and came homo to Eugene. “Tt was the first time that I had carried a large sum in cash,” she said, "and it will be the last time, too.” Miss Bailey graduated from the school of business administration, at the University of Montana in 1925. During her senior year she was secretary to Dean Thomas Spaulding, of the school of forestry. Chivalry Plus Jazz To Equal Dress Of Glee Ancient Motif Is Joined With Modernistic Touch At Annual Frosli Dance 3000 Yards of Cloth Used for Decorations Flood Lights Will Heighten Igloo for Hop Tonight By LOIS NELSON A theme I lint smacks of tlio moats a.ml jousts ami eliivalrv of a history mellowed ago—executed with tlio tricks of 20th (mutiny lighting and silhouotto effects- has been used bv the freshman class in making a setting al the Igloo for the Frosli Glee, second of a quartet of class dances for the university, that will be staged tonight at !l o’clock at McArthur court. There is the grandeur of modern istic design in the execution of the decorative scheme, medieval in tone, that Boh Van Nice as chairman of decorations has planned. And it is peculiarly “ freshmanish,” too, be cause the whole effect, lias the tang of the babes’ own English “survey lit” course. With the exception of final work to be done this morning, for which the general chairman, Don Call, has issued a summons to all frosli men, the job was wound up late' last night when a bunch of grimy, tired but game “babes” ended a long day's work. “Vagabonds” to Play Johnny Robinson's Varsity Vaga bonds are furnishing music for the affair. No hint as to the feature lias been given by Donna Gill, chair man, except that she insists it. is going to be “peppy and good.” More than three thousand yards of cloth have been used in decorat ing the huge halt, Call said yester day afternoon when, ns he perched on shy ward beams of the court, he answe.red questions that the reporter yelled up at a 90 degree angle. “We want men out tomorrow morning— that’s the main thing—otherwise everything is coming great,” he went on, from his perch in the “celestial regions” of the Tgloo. To Use Flood Lights Lugging with finniehy caution a 1000-watt, globe that looked more like an overgrown squash, Marshall Brownell came round one of the Igloo hall’s many corners —and bumped abruptly into the reporter. Thus caught he amiably took a few minutes to answer questions about the work of his lighting committee. A total of 8750 watts will be utilized in the 10 spot lights and six ?loo^ lights that will play an important part in the decorations for tonight, he explained. The lights were loaned to the class by the Guild hall theater. Brownell has had previous experience in handling lighting effects both in play pro ductions at Washington high school and at the lleilig theater in Port land. Palmer Brags of Might “Just say that ‘Slugger’ Palmer is doing big things,” called out Omar Palmer right cheerily as he slugged away with a hammer on a 2x4 in another corner. Palmer, as chairman of the construction com mittee, is “slave driver” for the gang of builders that has been on more or less continuous duty since Monday. Patrons and patronesses for the function are: Dr. and Mrs. Arnold Bennett Hall, Mr. and Mrs. Burt Brown Barker, Dean Hazel M. l’rutsman, Dean Hugh Biggs, Dean and Mrs. George Rebec, Mr. and Mrs. Karl M.

Oregon Meets State Men In Annual Feud Oregon Professors Flay U. S. Mote To Construct Fifteen Battle Cruisers Kellogg Pact to Renounce War, /They Declare Nation Showing Poor Diplomacy After Passing The United States is making a diplomatic blander by passing the Kellogg peace pad renouncing war as a national policy and then ser iously considering the building of ]fi battle crusiers, in the opinion of Oregon political science and la'w professors. Yesterday four members of those two faculties were approached for an expression of their views of the policy of Congress in seriously con sidering a bill calling for I lie con struction of the 15 cruisers less than two weeks after I lie ratifying the peace pact. The lairs, otherwise known as of fices, of four gentlemen were in vaded, and il developed that. .Tames 1>. Barnett, professor of political science, (i. ('. Howard, Fowler V. Harper, and R. flavit, professors of law, all have the same general idea about the poliey of ('engross in this delicate question. Barnett's Views Mr, Barnett stated the matter quite simply, and without undue ve hemence. “In my opinion,” he said, “the whole thing is highly incon sistent. Congress is undoing with the left hand what has been done by the right. Their action has already borne fruit in severe criticism from foreign countries.” When Mr. Howard heard the ques tion of the day, lie laid down his ponderous legal tone, and smiled as W. .1.

Miller unofficially broke An derson’s coas't record in the 100 last Thursday by one-fifth of a second.

Oregon’s First National Fraternity Lists Many Prominent Graduates The first national fraternity to bo installed at the University of Ore gon—probably not one student in fifty knows what it is or when it was installed. Phi Delta I’lii, national legal hon orary, installed a chapter in the j University of Oregon law school on the first of May, 1891, nearly ten years before any other national, either social or honorary, came to j the campus. But what makes this chapter of the fraternity really interesting is the large number of men included among its alumni who have become nationally and locally prominent in the legal and political fields. When the good brothers of Phi Delta Phi initiated young Fred Steiwer quite a number of years ago, they probably did not suspect that In- would someday represent Oregon in the United Stales Senate. Nor did they know, when they made a young law student, Frank Korell a member, that lie would before many years occupy one of Oregon’s seats in the House of Representa tives at Washington. Judge Former Member Judge Skipworth, who now lives in Eugene, and is a regent of the university was a member of Phi Delta Phi when ho was a student in the law school.

Whatever odds aro against the Oregonians, the hopes for an upset are not too distant. The real power of the Webfoot team is unknown, especially the one which will face Oregon State. Ill ness, injuries, and general ineffec tiveness of the regular combination has forced Bill Reinhart, Oregon coach, to resort to numerous changes in the lineup.
