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
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
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
* * *
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. #

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

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

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

afternoon. T li e

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

February 20, 1920. Blangenburg is
holder of the national amateur -140

cific coast holder of the 220-yard
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

national intercollegiate time in that
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
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

ments of the uni
versity which in
general would en

plans originated
as a result of con
ference at which
representatives of
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
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.

The Webfoot basketball team, con

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,
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
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
