VOLUME XXX____UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1929___NUMBER O / By JOE PIONEY If fame were the tiling Oregon sought when it recognized the equality of sports, fame is coming its way. But perhaps there is a distinction between fame and noto riety. Pacific const sporting editors do not look upon Oregon’s “pioneer ing in athletics” as an advance ment.. Rather, they have decided, the heralded advancement is mere ly an apology for the failure of the heretofore exclusively major sports. Oregon cannot win a title in foot ball, they infer, so water polo must be ranked ns a major athletic, ac tivity so that Oregon might, have a better chance of capturing a ^ major championship. Oregon’s great emancipation of athletics has so far failed to arouse applause. But listen to some of the jeers. Abe Kemp of the San Fran cisco Bulletin has this to sav: “Oregon now rates swimming and cross country running on a par with football, indicative that hope is fast ebbing in Oregon. Tf' California had the same rating, Reigels could have won himself two letters at once. Oregon’s football teams were once a thing of beauty, but now they are a joy forever to their rivals.” The usual California bias is ex cusable, but getting closer home are the remarks of L. H. Gregory, sporting editor of the Morning Ore gonian. The importance of the Ore gon equalization of sports evidently Ctrnek home for the Oregonian de voted a lengthy half column to its discussion. Mr. Gregory, unsympathetic, to ward what the Emerald called a progressive step in athletics, finds it convenient to' protect, himself, and makes it emphatically clear S that, because his opinions conflict with those of a collegiate council, he does not. care to be called an “old-fashioned dodo.” What. Mr. Gregory finds most deplorable in the re-ranking of sports is wholly on the surface. He has an innate dread of congratulating a man for a football letter, when in reality he is shaking hands with a golfer. The fact that there is no distinc tion in size of the awards will not detract interest from baseball and center it on golf. Interest in a fooball contest, under ordinary cir cumstances, always will supersede the interest in a. golf or tennis match. Public reward by approval always will over-rule the conven tionalization of letters. So Mr. Gregory’s fear that an unarbitrary classification of sports will destroy the natural division is unfounded. There is a lot of “poetic, justice” in public approval. Whatever the student council at Oregon decides, it can never transfer heroic affec tion. There is more human interest in the football hero and the baseball hero than there is in the golfer. Oregon is not trying to" change the sentiments of the public or Mr. Gregory, for it cannot do the im possible. * * * It can’t be denied that foot-ball and baseball are something which golf or water polo will never be, but. the star golfer works as hard in his own sphere as the star foot ball player, and there can be no comparison. The interest in golf and tennis grows daily, but it is an interest that is not approached by any of the sports generally known as major athletics. The public plays golf and tennis while it only watch es football or baseball. Football, basketball and baseball always will be the major sports, but these sports at Oregon are generous enough to foster the development ot the minor sports. They do this without detracting even slightly from their own popularity. # Visitor From Japan Honored at Luncheon Miss Lilian Tingle entertained with a luncheon at the Household Arts Friday in honor of Hr. Rachel Read of Tokio, who has recently re turned from a tour of Europe, hav ing left Japan last May. Mrs. Mur ray “Warner, who was an acquaint ance of Dr. Read in the Orient, was one of the guests at the luncheon. Dr. Read was also an acquaintance of Miss Helen Hyde whose art sketches aro being displayed now in the Museum of Fine Arts. Dr. Read was extremely pleased to find the exhibition of her friend’s work coinciding with her visit to the cam Major Rank For All Sports Not Approved Uniformity of Awards Does IS ot Change Interest in Events Campus Movie Screen Tests Set for Feb, 16 Professional Makeup to Be Used in Tryouts, Say J. Raley and C. Nelson Aspirants Will Have Showings in Private Arlen MeCarty, in Charge Of Sereens, Names Staff ITarken, all you wonld-be mnvio stars, hero’s your chance to break into fame. Who knows? Tt might, moan that some little physical ed girl may get started on the road that ends with the job of playing opposite of Gary Cooper. Indeed, some man now trug ging through the business ad school may some day protect the charms of Billie Dove. At any rate, to get right down to business- Jim Raley and Carvel Nelson announced last, night, that screen tests for I he campus movie will he taken Saturday, February lfi. Fifty Cents per test “These tests,” Haley said, “will cost, each person who tries out fifty cents. This charge lakes care of the expense of film and screen make up. Every man or girl that tries out will be made up with profes sional screen make-up, and the test will be made in private to avoid em barrassment. “It's certainly worth fifty cents to see how you would look on the screen, even it you don’t want to try out for the movie itself. After the try-outs, each person will get to see himself on the screen, and will later be given bis strip of film as a souvenir. The tests will be taken indoors under artificial light ing.” All Urged to Try-out Arlen McCarty is in charge of the screen tests, and urges everyone to try out. for the fun of it, if not in nil seriousness. MeCarty has an nounced a staff to take charge .of selling tho tickets which will be “good for one screen test.” The group, headed by Leonard Thom son, consists of Frank Learned, Bean Great h, May Tobin, Borothy Bun ean, and Elizabeth Strain. Bea Milligan, member of the pro ducing staff, will announce later a representative in each house to en roll people to try out. Several pos sibilities for each part will be chos en and given further tests for dra matic ability. Convention Program Meets With Approval Oregon Faculty Members Please State Teachers Gratification over the program ar ranged by three members of the University of Oregon faculty for the language division of the Oregon State Teachers’ annual convention hold in Portland during the Christ mas holidays is expressed in a let ter written by E. F. Carleton, exe cutive-secretary of the teachers’ as sociation, to A. Alexander Enna of Franklin high school of Portland, president of the language division. Mr. Enna sent a copy of the let ter to Br. Ray P. Bowen, head of the university Romance language de partment, who was chairman of the committee in charge of the program for the convention. Br. Bowen was assisted in his work by Br. F. U. Schmidt, head of the Germanic lan guages department, and Mrs. Edith P. Pattce, instructor of Latin in the University high school. The letter reads in part: “We de sire to express to you also our sin cere appreciation of your coopera tion in preparing a program of such high excellence. The expres sibn of the teachers seemed to be unanimous that the departmental meetings were better organized and more helpful than at any previous session. We feel that you and your associate chairman were responsible for making this session one of the most successful in the history of the association.” Parsons to Address Sociological Meeting An op«n meeting to which all sociology majors are especially in vited is sponsored by Alpha Kappa Delta, national sociological honor ary, for Thursday evening, Febru ary 7, at 8 o’clock in Alumni hall of the Woman's building. Dr. P. A. Parsons, dean of the school of sociology, will talk on "Pending Social Legislation and Organization of the school of Social Work.” Ninety-two Neglect Winter Term Fees Notice of Fines Sent to Delinquent Students When tli" cashier's office closed last Saturday at noon, there were still Oil students who had not paid their winter term fees. Saturday noon was the last date that fees coud be paid without a fine of for the first day and 2.3 cents for every subsequent day being added. Notices were sent out Saturday to the 92 delinquent students telling j them the amount they owed and the fine that would be attached. Fourteen responded bv paying their fees Monday morning. After Saturday noon, February 9, all those who have not paid their fees will be dropped from the university. Fee payment was very slow this term, according to R. F. Lyons, cashier. More students paid on Friday, February 1, than on any other day. Saturday morning there was not a great rush in the office. Records Broken In Saturday's Swimming Meet Varsity Lose to Freshmen By Wide Margin, 39-28; Marks Said Unoffieial Swimming records of all sorts, from national intercollegiate to pool marks, were broken at the Oregon varsity freshman meet last, Saturday afternoon. T li e freshmen \v o n, 39-28. L e .1 by Tommy Blanken liurg, freshman, who unofficially lowered the in tercollegiate, rec ord in the 200 yard breast stroke, members , a n (i croups or Blankenburg both tpams SI1(J ceeded in bettering several Pacific! coast, and Pacific nnrtInvest times. Since the meet was not: confer ence competition the marks made will not stand hs official but are an evidence of the potential per formances to be expected this year and next from the Oregon swimmers. Blankenburg’s time of 2:30 in the breast stroke event betters by one-half of a second the present mark held bv Halle Allen, Annap olis naval academy, made there February 20, 1920. Blangenburg is holder of the national amateur -140 yard breast stroke title and is Pa cific coast holder of the 220-yard record. Frank Walton, freshman, lowered Johnny Anderson’s Pacific coast record time in the 150-yard back stroke when he swam the distance in 1:45.2. This is 4.3 seconds faster than Anderson’s mark. Walton, Blankenburg and Anderson, swim ming tho 300-yard medley' relay', recently unofficially lowered the national intercollegiate time in that event. Charles Silverman, varsity swim mer, lowered by moTe than three seconds his own Pacific northwest record in the 440-yard free style. His new time is 5:38. In the closest finish of the meet the varsity relay team composed of Floyd, Hatton Sharp, and Anderson, nosed out the freshman quartet and came within 1-5 of a second of equaling the coast 160-yard record held by a Stanford team. The rec ord time is 1:19.2. Next Saturday the varsity swims its first conference meet with Ore Gon State Agricultural college-. Ore gon is doped to win but some close competition may' be expected, ac cording to Coach Edward Aber combie. After the f). A. C. meet the varsity and freshmen will meet in the first water polo exhibition of the season. The varsity will play a number of polo games during the sea son and so are in need of practice in the sport, which was recently made a major athletic event at Oregon. The freshmen are almost sure winners of the polo game since they defeated the varsity without the services of Frank Walton, probably one of the best water polo players on the Pacific coast. The water game, which is comparatively new at Oregon, is one of the most popu lar sports on the coast at the pres ent time and offers an interesting variety of action to spectators. Six University of Oregon pool records were broken in Saturday’s meet. New times for the Woman’s building pool were set in the 440 yard free style, the 150-yard back stroke, the 200-yard breast stroke and the free style and medley relays. The freshman medley relay team set a new time of 3:.'*1.4 in (Continued on Page Three) Designed Plan Of Entrance Faces Faculty Proposed Requirements Encourage (Quality in High School Studies Education Committee Recommends Plan Adoption up to University; Schools Await Decision Consideration will lie given liy the University of Oregon faculty al a meeting Wednesday of proposed p 1 ii n s modi lying and (‘hanging en t r a n (- o require ments of the uni versity which in general would en courage q n a 1 i t y rather than var iety in tlie work of high s c ti o o I a t n d e ii t s. The plans originated as a result of con ference at which representatives of Pallett by standards Ul'C g il 11 colleges and many high schools worn present, and were acted on at a recent committee meeting in Salem. Tlie plans are recommended the higher educati committee, and the academic, re quirements committee of the facul ty, who studied them closely be fore approving them, according to Registrar Earl AT. Pallet!, who at tended the Salem conclave. The proposals represent a provisional agreement among the schools of the state, but their adoption is entirely up to the university faculty and what act'n n will be taken is not known. Minimum Entrance Requirements The idea is to make these provis ions the minimum in the way of entrance requirements for high school students, and there will he nothing to prevent any of the schools from adding to them as they see fit, according to Mr. Pallett. Tt is for the Oregon faculty to decide whether they shall adopt the plans and whether they shall retain them in their present state, nr shall add to them certain requirements. Under the proposals, the chief dif ference at Oregon would be to al low any student to enter without filling the present, requirement of one year of laboratory science, one year of algebra and one year of geometry However, if the faculty wishes to do so, it; can add these re quirements to the plans, if not at '•this time, latch, if desired. Promotes Continuity The proposed legislation would make the new requirements effective in 1029, fall term, and would repeal present legislation on entrance re quirements. Each plan of the three calls for presentation of 15 units from a four-year high school or 12 from a senior high school. The first plan would promote continuity in high school preparatory work and would encourage students to do a considerable amount of work in a few fields rather than scatter over a number of fields. The second plan represents about the same plan as now in use, and the third is pro vided so that exceptional students wlio have not filled to the letter the requirements of the first two plans, may still enter because they are exceptionally qualified for col lege work. _ I Grizzly Stars in Tonight's Rattle Bub Rankin and Ted' Rule," scoring aces on "the Montana "basketball team, were largely responsible for Oregon's defeat in the north ten days ago. These men have played brilliantly all season, and should make it tough for the Oregon defenders.

New Faces in Tonight’s Tilt With Montana Horner, Jean Eberhart Win Berths on First String Varsity Team Reinhart Benches Veteran Players for Substitutes PROBABLE LINEUPS Oregon Montana Milligan. P Lewis McCormick F . Chinske J. Eberhart C .Rule Horner. 0 Rankin Epps. G Graham The Webfoot basketball team, con fident after its defeat of Oregon State last Saturday at Corvallis, opens 1, s homo season against Montana tonight at 7:lf>. Because the drizzly won from Oregon in the north, it, is a g a i n ra t ed a slight favorite. Bill Reinhart, O r e g o n coach, plans to start the same re-organized Joe Bally lineup which do f on toil the Beavers. Two sophomore players, who brolco into conference competition for the first, time Hat urday, will go into the Montana game ot the start. They are Jean Kberhart, center, and Cliff Horner, guard. Eborliart and Horner to Start What, Kberhart and Horner did to Hie Oregon basketball team was enough to bring it, its first, victory of the IttttO conference season. Those two not only played a good brand of ball for “beginners,” but were the stars of the contest. Kberhart was high point man of I he game with five field goals and one free throw, and Horner was second with three field goals and one free throw. .lean Kberhart and Cliff Horner, no doubt, have won permanent places in the Oregon lineup for the rest, of the season. The first, string players of last, week are now hav ing lo stand back while the sopho mores grab some of the honors. 11ar old Olinger, another star from lsst year’s finish learn, is on the tenta tive list In start against Montana tonight. Two Positions Tentative Three of the positions for to night’s game are definitely filled. Heott Milligan will go in at one forward, Jean Kberhart at center, and <’litf Horner, (iordon Hidings, Hon McCormick, Harold Olinger, Have Epps, and Joe Bally will fight, it ant for the other two positions. Tonight ’s game will prove one of two things. Either Oregon has a poor team which played over its head in the Oregon Slate game, or it has a good team which is just coming out of a temporary slump. The Webfoots are fighting to finish Iho season above the .000 mark in Iheir percentage column, but to do this they must win Hie remainder of the schedule. Montana with Oregon Montana is down in Hie eellar of the league along with Oregon. The Grizzlies’ victory over Oregon at Missoula, 29 (o'28, was (he llrst hi the basketball history of the two schools. Although Oregon had lost all of its contests before going lo Missoula, I! still was a strong favor ite lo win. The loss was one of the biggest upsets of the year. Oregon is out tonight, to avenge Hie first defeat of the Grizzlies. 1 Claying on its home floor, the Web foots have a better ehni.ee to win than they <ti,| r,| Missoula. With a new lineup and a new spirit Rein hart’s team has an even break to "in from Montana tonight.
