(It is only fair to Mr. Lcsch to

it was to be printed.)
‘‘I was only kissed on one cheek,
because the other one slipped on my
nose,” Edward A. Lcsch, assistant
professor of English didn’t even
blush, but he looked uncomfortable.
He was telling how he won the
Croix. de Guerre.
He was second lieutenant in an
artillery division. The Americans
and French were drawn up side by
side in the trenches. Across from
them were the Germans.
“Everything was quiet until the
Americans came,” Mr. Lesch ex
plained. “There wasn’t any firing.
^ Every morning the Germans would
comp out and -wash their clothes.
They’d call to the French once in
a while, and pas3 dirty jokes.
“Then the Americans came and
started to shoot at everything in
sight. The Germans shot back. They
never hit the Americans, but shot
into the French camouflage and set
it on fire. Well, the French dug
into their holes and just let it

enough to go over and put it out.

Freshman Team
Will Play Rooks
At Igloo Friday
Yearlings Must Win Came
To Take Beaver Series;
Squad Poor in Praetiee
The Webfoot yearlings make their
first home appearance in conference
basketball play Friday afternoon at
4 o’clock on tbe McArthur court
floor when they meet the Aggie
rooks in a third game.
The rooks took the first game,
41 to "4, and' the frosh came back
to win the second, 4.1 to 20. The
rooks lost to the Hniversity of
Washington frosh earlier in the sea
son. Oregon will play two games
with the Washington yearlings af
ter they finish the four game series
with the Aggies.
The coast conference schools do
not organize their schedules for the
freshman teams as they do for the
varsity, and no Pacific coast or
northern division championships are
official. Last year Washington was
considered the winner, as they de
feated Oregon, Oregon Aggies and
Washington State. Early games in
dicate that they will repeat this
year, as each of the Oregon schools
has .o' defeat. Washington State
would have a chance but they do
not play the Aggies or Oregon.
If the frosh win the series with
the Beavers and win at least one
of the games with the Husky Pups,
they will have finished the most
successful season a yearling team
has had in the last three years.
To win the series with the Bea
vers it is necessary that the Frosh
take the game this Friday. Al
though they outplayed their Aggie
opponents both in the last half of
the first game and in all the second
game, they have made a very poor
showing in their workouts this
Earl (Spike1) Leslie, yearling
mentor, is decidedly worried and
may make some changes in the line
up before they take the floor Fri
day afternoon. Spike was unde
cided last night after the practice
as to whom would be on the first
team, but the starting five will be
picked from the same squad of
twelve men that made the trips to
Kenneth Edick, forward on the
supers until this week, has been
promoted to the first squad and
may get his elianee against the
rooks. He has been showing up
well in the recent scrimmages, and
will at least l»e among the reserves.

Lad Brings Two Cats
To Be Sacrificed for
Use of Lab Students
A university may perform many
unique services for the city in
which it is situated. This was
proved Tuesday afternoon, when a
lad walked into Ready hall, carry
ing under his arm a large cardboard
box. He wandered aimlessly up
and down the hall for a time, and
then approached one of the students.
“Can you tell mc what to do with
these cats?” he queried. The stu
dent directed him to one of the lab
assistants for information, so the
boy again asked his question. It
finally developed that he had a
superabundance of cats at his home,
so he brought two to the university,
to be sacrificed at the altar of
higher learning.
However, the lab had already se
cured all the cats necessary, but
the assistant volunteered to dis
pose of them for the boy.
The kittens were taken into an
evil-smelling little room, where they
were placed in a glass enclosed box.
The gas was turned on, there was
a high-pitehel feline snarl, and then
the kittens lay motionless, dead.

Aeronautics Courses
Appro ved by Faculty
New Code of
Entrance Put
On IF Books
Requirements for High
School Students Are
Changed by Faeulty
Rulings Will Take Effort
Here Next Fall Term
A now emit' flf entranc'd require
ments, designed with tlie pwpose of
emphasizing quality rather than
variety in high school work, was
adopted by the University of Ore
gon faeulty at a meeting yesterday.
These requirements conform exactly
to those recommended by the higher
education standards committee, and
grew out of conferences at which
representatives of all Oregon col
leges as well as from many high
schools were present.
The requirements were recom
mended by the higher education
standards committee at a recent
meeting in Salem, the idea being
that they should represent minimum
requirements for entrance into high
er institutions of learning in Ore
gon. As approved at Salem, any
college may add to them, but at
yesterday’s faculty session it was
decided to adopt the basic, code as
the requirements for entrance to tlie
University of Oregon.
Take Effect in Pali
Effective at .Hie beginning of Hie
fall term in 1 Dili I, Hie action of the
faculty yesterday also repeals all
standing entrance requirements. It,
is the understanding that the adop
tion of the regulations does not
preclude Hie possibility of addition
of special requirements in the
As they stand, the new require
ments make it possible for n high
school graduate to enter the Uni
versity of Oregon without fulfilling
Hie present requirements of one
year of laboratory science, one year
of algebra, and one year of geom
etry. The question of eliminating
algebra and geometry from, the re
quirement list aroused considerable
dismission at the faculty meeting.
It was brought out, however, that
under the required list; of major and
minor subjects the student would
probably find it advisable to take
mathematies in high school anyhow,
that unified mathematies courses
|ire being taught in the rapidly in
creasing junior high schools.
The new requirements include
three plans. Each requires the
presentation of Id units from a
l’oor-year high school or 12 units
from a senior high school. This
latter clause is a recognition Of Hie
junior high school system.
Units to Be Grouped
Part of the units are to bo group
ed into major;; and minors. Distri
bution from a four year high school
must include two majors and three
minors, of which two majors and
one minor, or vice versa, must lie
selected from Hie fields of English,
language, mathematics, laboratory
science and social science. One of
tlie majors must be in English. Dis
tribution from a senior (three year)
high school must include two majors
and two minors, of which two
majors and one minor, or vice versa,
must be selected from the same
fields. One minor or major must
be in English. No credit will be
given for penmanship, spelling,
physical education, or any subject
classified as a student activity.
A second plan conforms almost
exactly to the present entrance re
quirements of Hie university, while
a third is provided so that students
9dt0 are particularly well qmt+ffied
for college work, but have by
chance failed to conform to the
first two plans, may still enter un
der special circumstances.

Insanity ns Defense
For Murder Debated
With Roger Pfoff, freshman in

affimini Ivo, and Clarence Bar
ton, sophomore in pre-law stag
ing tho defense on tlio negative,
the Congress, public, speaking
dub, debated and discussed the
question, “Resolved, that insan
ity should not be allowed as a
defense for murder,” at a meet
ing last night at tho College Side
Insanity as a. defense plea is
tho only way by which a derang
ed person can escape capital pun
ishment, the negative argued. A
murderer is either unusually
brave or lie’s crazy, the speaker
With vivid expounding of ac
tual murder cases tho affirma
tive showed the inability of a
court to decide the mental con
dition of an accused person.
“The court is not .justice. It
is a battle-ground of lawyers.
Tt, is the toy of the rich man, and
has been ever since the trial of
Harry K. Thaw,” one speaker
stated in the discussion. Gene
Laird, junior in journalism, act
ed as discussion critic.
Companionate marriage was
chosen as tho topic for ;n^xt
week’s discussion. The subject
will lie introduced by A. Harvey
Wright, junior in prelaw, in a
five minute talk.

Second Generation at
‘Shack’ This Afternoon
To study tiro snmo courses which
their fathers atul mothers studied,
sometimes under the sumo profes
sors, is the interesting experience
of a number of students at the
University of Oregon, whose fathers
and mothers attended school here.
Many of them relate tales whieh
recall happy college days to Iho
alumnae when they receive I lie Feb
ruary issue of Old Oregon, which is
to contain a story about all tho
members of tho “second generation”
on the campus, and their parents.
An attempt has been mado to
conduct, a personal interview with
all these students, and although
they have cooperated well, thero
are several who have not yet been
readied. Because it is especially
desired that this story be complete,
those who have not yet been inter
viewed are asked to come to room
204 of the Journalism building at
any time from 1 to 5 o’clock this
afternoon. This will be ttie last op
portunity to make additions to thn
list. Any one who cannot meet at
the specified hours may leave his
name and address at the Old Oregon
office, and other arrangements will
tie made.
Some families are represented by
two members, and several houses
have a large representation, while
others evidently have no students
whose parents went to school here.
A picture of the sons gnd daugh

Preparatory Study Before
Flying to Be Featured
A list of Conrans and tentative
curricula to bn made available for
students interested in aeronautics
was approved by the University of
Oregon faculty yesterday and is re
garded ns an experimental step
into a field which henceforth will
lie of growing importance in (In
field of higher education. At the
same time, announcement was made
of a committee, consisting of load
ers in aviation in the Northwest and
others, to serve in an advisory ca
pacity in connection with tlie work.
Only one yew course, that being
in commercial aviation, is necessary
in connection with the work ap
proved yesterday, all-others being
already tnugbt at the university.
By correlating the courses already
taught, it was found possible to give
work in the subjects advisable for
study by prospective aviators and
others interested in the aviation in
dustry. The new course will be
subject to approval by the board of
higher curricula. Dr. A. B. Hal),
president, emphasized that this
work is entirely experimental.
Smith Announces Plan
Under the plan, ns announced ny
Dr. Wnri’on I). Smith, head of the
committee, three types of courses
are proposed. The first is a short
course, to be conducted in connec
tion with a short course in actual
flying to be given by the Hobi
Airivays, Trie., who have leased the
Eugene municipal airport. The
second is a two-year course which
would on completion earn a junior
Certificate. The third is a four
year course, with the bachelor of
science degree, leading tip to spe
cial scientific, training in graduate
years. v
Prof. C. Harvey Hicks, member
of the mathematics staff and an
authority on aeronautics, was rec
ommended as technical adviser for
those who continue the study for
four years. Professor Hicks con
ducted important research work in
aeronautics at the California Insti
tute of Technology.
The courses, as approved by the
faculty yesterday, will be given
under the direction of I he school of
business administration. They in
clude such work as unified mathe
matics, physics, practical astron
omy, meteorology, thermodynamics,
manufacturing, personnel manage
ment, traffic management, and so

Varied Species of Birds Inhabit
Local Campus During Winter Months
Students arc not tho only animals
which inhabit tho University of
Oregon campus. Squirrels, birds,
gophers and professors are also pres
ent in considerable number, partic
ularly birds and professors.
Not to wander any farther from
the story, R. R. Iluestis, associate
professor of animal biology, was ap
proached yesterday, and asked to
tell all he knew about the members,
of the feathered species which in
habit the campus during the winter.
This inquiry was provoked by tho
observation of a number of blue
birds around the old library build
ing during the recent snowy weather.
Most of the people who noticed the
little blue and brown birds flitting
around in the snow concluded that
they had come north from the
sunny south too soon and were en
tirely out of place in such wintry
But Professor Iluestis knew bet
tor. “Those bluebirds are known
us Western bluebirds,” he said in
his best, professional manner, “and
contrary to popular opinion they
stick around here all winter lout;.
They are usually seen in twos or
threes, but when the snow comes
they hand together in larger groups.
“The fact is that there are far
more kinds of birds around the
campus during the winter than most
people ever notice. One reason for
this, I suppose, is that the birds
sing very little in cold weather, and
one’s attention is not attracted to
“Probably everyone notices the
robins and the varied thrushes, or
Alaskan robins, ns they are called,
during the winter. But few see the
purple finches, the golden crowned
sparrows, the song sparrows, the
stellar jays, the occasional blue jay,
