Technicolor and Sound
Apparatus Under Way
Two reserved seats have been
offered by Bill East, chairman
of the Canoe Fete directorate,
as a prize for the student se
lecting a suitable name for the
annual Canoe Fete. The con
test is open to all University
students and proposed names
may be turned in to East or
any member of the directorate.
Plans for the revised 1930 Canoe
Fete, to be held the evening -of
May 9, were announced Thursday
by Bill East, chairman of the
fete directorate. At the same
time East disclosed the rules and
regulations to be used in building
floats this year.
Unusual features have been as
sured for the affair this year as
several of the best songs and
chorus dances of the banned Jun
ior Vodvil have been contracted
to appear on a big stage to be
erected facing the bleachers on the
mill race. Several acts and spe
cialty numbers will be on the pro
gram with music furnished by a
leading campus band.
Novel lighting features are be
ing worked out to enable all to
clearly see the stage from across
the race. The new system will
include several more spots and a
greater variety of colors. The
motif selected for the fete will be
carried out on both the archway
and on the stage.
Pictures to Be Taken
Allen Hunt, Pathe staff camera
man who has been taking shots
around the campus, is negotiating
to secure technicolor and sound
picture apparatus for taking shots
of the fete this year, according to
Floats will be judged by a com
mittee of seven faculty members,
four men and three women, and
the entries will be judged on four
counts, conception, presentation,
effort, and design. The expendi
tures for the construction of floats
must be limited to $15 per or
ganization or $30 per float. An
itemized and signed statement
must be turned in to the direc
torate at least two days before
the contest.
The titles selected for all floats
must be submitted to East on or
before April 25, along with a brief
description of the float as planned.
All information will be held strict
ly confidential.
Dimensions Announced
Dimensions as to the size of the
floats were also announced by
East. The height of a float is
limited to 12 feet and the breadth
to 12 feet. The hull of the floats
will riot necessarily be confined to
canoes alone, East stated, but
barges, barrels, or similar sup
ports may be used, provided the
cost is not beyond the limit set.
A new plan of having perma
nent cups go to the winners will
be in effect this year, according
to East. Both houses teamed to
gether in the winning float will
receive suitable silver trophies
with merchandise prizes going to
the winners of second place. Two
other floats will receive honorable

New Tradition in
Honorary’s Dance
Grads May Take Children
On Knees and Narrate
Origin of Affair
Other Colleges Have Like
In the after years, men and wo
men who attended school at Ore
gon can gather their children
around their knees and tell them
of how the Annual Mortar Board
ball started when they were col
lege students way back in '30.
The members of the Mortar
Board are starting what promises
to become one of the big traditions I
of Oregon. They plan to hold each i
spring an all campus dance; but
hold, here’s where the novel ele
ment enters; the tables will be
turned and women, from the
youngest frosh to the most blase
senior will pay the bills and take
the initiative in finding- dates for :
the affair.
Similar Dances Elsewhere
Practically all other colleges in
the country have at least one big
dance where the women treat, but
never before has such a thing been
done at the University of Oregon.
The Mortar Board ball will be
strictly formal, and this occasion
will be a "swell" chance for the
men to see if they really rgte as
much as they think they do.
Another innovation which is in
tended to become a tradition also,
will be that Kwama pledges for
the year will be announced at the
dance. Kwama is an honorary
service organization for sopho
more women; the new members
formerly were pledged at a special
assembly, but it was thought fit
ting, by members of the Mortar
Board, that they be announced at
this ball since it is to be distinctly
a woman's affair.
The men's dormitory extended
an invitation to Mortar Board to
permit them to use the dormitory
to entertain the campus. Johnny
Robinson and his nine piece or
chestra will furnish music for the
evening. Tickets will be sold in
each women's living organization
on the campus and representatives
in each house to handle the tickets
will be announced later. The com
mittee arranging for the Mortar
Board ball are Marjorie Chester,
Betty Schmeer, Helen Peters,
Florence McNerney, Eldress Judd,
Margaret Edmunson, and Bea
This dance will be held Friday,
April 25, and will be part of the
festivities of Senior Leap Week.
Women Debaters
Defeat Linfield
Freshman Squad Closes
Season With Win
Betty Jones and Dorothy String
er, representing the freshman de
bate squad, defeated the Linfield
college varsity team Wednesday
night at McMinnville. The Oregon
girls took the negative side of the
question, "Resolved, that the di
vergence of women from the homes
to industry is detrimental to so
ciety,” and were awarded the de
cision by a critic judge.
The debate was marked by much
humor. The debate wa3 the last
of a very successful season for the
women's debate team.
Series Starts,
Columbia Up
Webfoot Team To Oppose
Portland Irishmen
This Afternoon
Oregon Lineup Undecided;
McDonald or Fuller
Will Pitch
A hustling gang of ball players
from Columbia university of Port
land, some of them perhaps lack
ing in Irish ancestors, but all
famed for Irish aggressiveness,
will start the last pre-season base
ball series on the Webfoots sched
ule at 3:30 this afternoon on Rein
hart field.
The list of two and three-year
lettermen on the Cliffdwellers’
team forecasts that the color they
will show should be anything but
the favored Gaelish green. Their
pitching staff is exceptionally
strong—probably will produce the
be,it hurling Oregon has faced
this year, and in their hitting and
fielding they are also good.
Columbia Line-up Given
Columbia's line-up will be about
like this: Red Costello, veteran
second baseman; Chuck Huddle
stone, left fielder; Leonard Davis,
two-year letterman in center
field and the leading hitter on the
team; Jim Cosgrove, short stop
for three years and reputed to be
good enough for professional; Jim
Milan, captain and two-year vet
eran first sacker; Leon Eulberg,
right field; Gene Shulte, third
base; and Larry Brennan, catcher.
Both teams are expected to
start their best men in the box.
Columbia’s ace is Ray Herman
who has had two years experience
and pitches both a curve ball and
a fast one. The Webfoots will open
with either Reynold MacDonald,
their speed ball heaver, or Curley
Fuller, who hooks them from the
port side.
Webfoot Line-up Undecided
The Webfoot line-up won’t be
decided until game time. Carl Nel
son may start at first or Harold
Olinger may take that post. If
not used at first Nelson will play
in the outfield. Brian Mimnaugh
and Johnny Londahl have the
keystone sack to fight over. Which
one will start there is still a ques
tion. Kermit Stevens will play
short and Rabbit Robie third.
Cece Gabriel is slated to do the
receiving, and his alternate,
Charles Hoag, may be used in the
outfield because of his hitting abil
ity. Kramer Barnes will either
play left or center field and Fran
ny Andrews will probably fill one
of the outer posts.

Portland Telegram Man
Talks to Men’s Group
On Founder’s Day
Elimination of Superiority
Complex Urged
Mingling humorous quips with
sage advice, Dean Collins alter
nately carried his audience from
laughter to seriousness, at the
twenty-first annual Founders’ day
banquet of Sigma Delta Chi, in
ternational professional journalism
fraternity, last night at the Col
lege Side Inn.
“When I was on the Emerald
in 1910,” said Mr. Collins, who is
the columnist and dramatic editor
of the Portland Telegram, “the
paper was published only twice a
week, and then we were often so
short of news we had to make
it up.”
Onthank Remembered
Mr. Collins told of those early
times, and of his association wilh
such personages as Karl Onthank,
“Skipper” Nicholas, and L. H.
“It is a habit to refer to the
early days of journalism as the
‘good old days,’ ” said Mr. Collins,
in one of his more serious mo
ments. “They have given a gloss
to the newspaper profession and
filled the young reporter’s head
with ideas that he is superior to
the common herd. My advice to
the young newspaper man is to
see the human point of view. Don’t

True Brotherhood Between
Nations Indicated in
Consul’s Lecture
Both Display Energy in
Overcoming Many Dire
A true brotherhood between Ja
pan and America was indicated
last night in the lecture of Hirosi
Acino, Japanese consul in Port
land, at Alumni hall in the Ger
linger building, when he pointed
out that both nations display the
same invincible energy and in
genuity in overcoming obstacles
and withstanding dire calamities.
“In many respects, Americans
and Japanese are exact antitheses
of each other,” Mr. Acino said, in
referring to the rebuilding of
Tokyo after the great earthquake
and fire of 1923. “We have dif
ferent economic situations, have
different traditions, have devel
oped civilizations of different char
acter, but we are like each other
in at least one point, that we are
neither of us a coward that is
taken back by an obstacle of ca
lamity, and that we both possess
the ability to meet squarely any
difficult situation."
Modern Japan Is Subject
The subject of Mr. Acino’s lec
ture, which was presented under
the auspices of the International
club, was "Some Phases of Mod
ern Japan," a topic suggested by
Dr. John R. Mez, economics pro
fessor, who was in charge of plans
for entertaining the visitor during
his stay on the campus. Japan’s
sudden rise to a position of lead
ership among the nations of the
world, after a complete isolation
that endured for more than 250
years, was cited as an example of
the adaptability, perseverance, in
dustry, and thrift of the Japanese
Western Civilization Grows
"The transformation of Japan
which took place after the open
ing of the country is often re
garded by the outside world as a
sudden jump from total barbarity
to modern civilization. As a mat
ter of fact, Japan had reached a
considerable level of general cul
ture under the protection of the
isolation policy. The field was
fertile to receive the seeds of
western civilization.”
According to Mr. Acino, Japan
as a single sovereign state is the
oldest country in the world. Nip
pon’s present ruler is the 124th
descendant of the first emperor.
In spite of this ^antiquity, Mr.
Acino pointed out that Japan, in
view of her recent developments
in the fields of education, politics,
engineering, medicine, and culture,
i3 in reality a new nation.
Mr. Acino and his wife were
entertained at an informal ban
quet at the Osburn hotel last eve
ning, where they were welcomed
to the University by President Ar
nold Bennett Hall, who has just
