Death House for Candidates
Student voters went to the polls at the Y hut early yesterday
to decide the fate of candidates for A. S. U. O. offices. Here are a
few of the voters snapped by the Emerald’s staff photographer.
High School Title
In Debate Will Be
Decided Saturday
Medford and Prineville,
District Champions, Are
To Meet in Villard
The high school debating cham
pionship of Oregon will be decided
here tomorrow when Medford high
school, winner in western Oregon,
meets Prineville high school, the
winner of eastern Oregon, accord
ing to Percy M. Collier, of the Uni
versity extension division, chair
man of the high school league.
As champions of eastern and
western Oregon these two teams
will be awarded the Burt Brown
Barker cups, while the winner of
this last debate will receive the E.
E. DeCou cup.
Medford Has Affirmative
Helen Wilson and Donald . Dar
neille will compose the team which
will represent Medford, under
Ralph R. Bailey, coach. They will
argue the affirmative side of the
question. Last week this pair de
feated Astoria high school in a
contest held in Portland, thereby
winning the right to represent
western Oregon. Last year Med
ford won this right, also, but was
defeated by McLoughlin high
school at Milton-Freewater, in the
final debate.
The Prineville team, upholding
the negative, is composed of Fran
ces Mays and Catherine Coshow
and coached by Vernon I. Basler.
The debate will be held at 7:30
o’clock in Villard hall on the cam
pus, and the subject under discus
sion will be “Resolved, that chain
stores are detrimental to the best
interests of the Amerian people.”
Judges will be Robert Prescott,
Eugene; George W. Robbins, of the
school of business, and Carlton
Spencer, of the law school.
Canoe Fete Staging Improves
t t
D. T. Bayly, Viewer of Many Annual Mill Race
Shows, Says Events Getting Better Each Year
“There is something that always
stands out in every Canoe Fete,”
D. T. Bayly, manager of the An
chorage Raceway, who has viewed
a succession of fetes from his door
Iway, said yesterday. “One of
them tips over, or catches fire, or
gets caught on the trees or along
the bank. But as a rule they go
off pretty smoothly.
“Are they getting more elabor
ate ? Well, I don't know,” he con
tinued. “They had some mighty
fine floats in 1922 and ’23. I sup
pose they are improving in quality
a little. One thing does improve,
though. There has been a contin
ual bettering of staging and
“When I first came here the peo
ple saf around on the banks of the
race. Later they built a species of
‘seats’—that was in 1922. Until I
acquired the property they were
4 unable to construct anything on
the other side of the race. The or
chestra was on this side of the
race, and sat at one end of the
“The arches and lighting effects
have been made more elaborate all
along. Last year they introduced
the sound effects.
“Anyone ever injured in a fete?
Not that I know of. Of course,
quite a number of people have fal
len ii to the race trying to look on
from various points outside the
"I remember one year there was
a group of small boys who got up in
one of the trees that spread over the
race. Too many of them got on
the same branch, and when the
thing broke, they all landed in the
water. It caused a big laugh.
“The bleachers have been built
considerably larger this year, so I
.oubt if anyone need try that stunt.
With half the students working on
the floats, and enough seats to
hold the rest of them, this year’s
fete ought to be the 'biggest and
ibest’ of them all,” he concluded.

Depression Due
To Public Mind,
Says Dr. Morris
Overcoming of Fear and
Uncertainty Would
Control Conditions
“On.e key to the control of busi
ness conditions is the learning of
the public to control its state of
mind.” This was the statement of
Dr. Victor P. Morris, professor of
economics, when he spoke over
station KORE during the Emerald
editorial hour yesterday afternoon.
The talk was third in the series
being given by members of the
University faculty on topics of cur
rent interest. John G. Hazam, of
the history department, Dr. John
R. Mez, of the economics depart
ment, and Wayne L. Morse, of the

will speak during the next two

and uncertainty which always
helps to bring on a financial crash,
and that mob spirit which sweeps
everyone along with it into a fefel

Huskies Face

Washington Leads League;
Dave Itloom To Pitch
For Webfoots
The purple and gold Huskies
from the University of Washing
ton will face the offerings of Dave
Bloom with the rest of the Web
foot nine behind him at Reinhart
field this afternoon. The Huskies
come to Eugene leading the North
west baseball conference. Another
game will be played tomorrow.
As afternoon classes are dis
| missed today, the starting time of
the game will be moved up from
the usual 4 o’clock to 2:30.
Washington was champion last
year and they have started the
current season impressively, win
ning both Idaho tussles, and split
ting even in a two-game series
with Washington State.
Putnam May Pitch
Coached by Tubby Graves, the
Husky line-up is composed princi
pally of sophomores. However,
'there are enough second and third
year men to season the squad.
Dignon and Gaw, regular pitch
ers, each pocketed a game from
Idaho earlier in the week. After
a lapse of a year, Oregon prob
ably will renew acquaintances with
Pitcher Putnam today.
Bill Reinhart was out of town
yesterday. In his absence the
squad took a light workout and
then played a practice game with
the frosh.
Potter Remains on Third
The line-up this afternoon will
resemble the coterie that tackled
the Cougars Tuesday. Although

Gets Majority of 238
Votes in ASUO Poll
Evans Edges out Stipe in Final
Count; 1810 Ballots Cast
TICKET politics were seemingly vindicated last night, when Brian
Mimnaugh and his complete ticket were elected by majorities
ranging from 238 in the case of Mimnaugh to a difference of 51 in
the vice-presidential race.
At no time was Mimnaugh's lead threatened. He was ahead from
the first returns at 4:30 until the final results at 9 o'clock. The most
fiercely contested race was between Walt Evans and -Jack Stipe for
the vice-presidency. Stipe took an early lead, which he held with a
small margin until 8 o’clock, when the tide changed and Evans grad
ually crept ahead to win by a majority of 51. 4 •

Re-election Held Unlikely
i "Two callers and four checkers
passed on each ballot, and in the
race for vice-presidency only an
error of one was discovered. The
lack of tally difference makes the
possibility of a re-election ex
tremely unlikely.
Only 1810 votes were cast. In
a previous issue the writer pre
dicted that 1800 would be balloted,
which is a close enough guess for
any game except horseshoes.
The results of this election still
prove that ticket politics are a
profitable investment for the am
bitious young politician.

Favors United Student Church
^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ Cf>
Dr. Nelson L. Bossing Says Edifice Near Campus
Opportunity To Influence Life
Editor’s note: This is the third
of it series of articles being pub
lished in the Emerald concern
ing united student religious work
and its relation to the proposed
union of student religious organ
izations on the Oregon campus.
A united interdenominational
church for students was advocated
by Dr. Nelson L. Bossing, profes
sor of education, in an interview
yesterday. Dr. Bossing is chair
man of the student-faculty com
mittee on religion, which met at 4
o’clock yesterday afternoon to con
sider various plans to better the
student religious life on the Ore
gon campus.
“If the churches involved in the
talked of merger should fail in
their plans of union to provide for
a church in proximity to the Uni
versity of Oregon campus a real
opportunity will have been lost to
influence most effectively the stu
dent life,” Dr. Bossing said.
“It is quite difficult, if not im
possible, for a large church made
up of older, more mature people in
the community to provide the right
kind of worship and intellectual at
mosphere that would appeal to a
group of students,” Dr. Bossing
He pointed out that people who
make .up the personnel of the
church have interests largely cen
tered around problems that con
cern their business and social life.
At the same time students are
interested in problems that largely
center around youth, such as a de
termination of accepted standards
of ethical behavior, and an attempt
to develop a philosophy of life cen
tered around problems of intel
lectual questioning- that are raised
in the University classroom.
“As a member of the University
staff and looking at the problem
from the standpoint of campus
needs, it appears to me a supreme
opportunity for the Eugene de
