counted for seven runs, the Beta
nine barely nosed out the A. T. O.
squad for a 9-8 victory. The Betas
had previously won the soft ball
^ championship of the campus, while
the A. T. O.’s had won the hard
ball championship; and the pres
ent series is a play-off between
the two champions. Yesterday’s
game was played with a soft ball,
giving Beta the advantage.
The A. T. O. nine started the
scoring in the second inning when
McKim got on base with a single
to left field. Proctor grounded to
first, but both he and McKim were
safe on the error of Don Siegmund
at first base. Gunther, pitching for
Beta, walked Pahl thereby loading
the bags and with but one out.
Welch singled to right field, send
ing McKim and Proctor home, but
went out in an attempt to steal

In the last half of the second
Beta managed to pound the bags
for two runs, but failed to make
up the A. T. O. lead. In the third
the A. T. O.’s again nicked Gun

score 7-2. Beta failed to score.
Dolp took over the box in the

Study of Thyroid
Is Published In
Southern Paper
Edna Spenker, senior in sociol
ogy, has had her paper on thyroid
disorder published in the Journal
of Social Forces of the University
of North Carolina, it was revealed
yesterday. The name of the arti
cle is "Quantitative Evidence of
the Effect of Thyroid Disorder
Upon the Birth-Rate.”
Miss Spenker was assisted in her
work by Dr. L. S. Cressman, pro
fessor of sociology, with whom she
collaborated on a previous study
on thyroid disorder which is being i
printed in the Human Biology of
Johns Hopkins university.
The article shows that when thy
roid disorder is increased the ten
dency is for the birth rate to de
crease. Clinical evidence has sug
gested this but previously no quan
titative studies have been made.
Miss Spenker gathered her ma
terial from the United States Sta
tistics for 1920 and a report of the
surgeon-general’s office of the
United States army showing inci
dence of goiter in drafted men.
The Journal in which the article is
published is one of the two out
standing magazines on social sci
ences, the other being the Journal
of Sociology.
At present Miss Spenker is
working on a statistical analysis
of the effect of economical condi
tions on expenditures for public
poor relief in Lane county. Both ,
this and the article published are ;

Dear Friends:
On June 15, the seniors march in McArthur court sol
emnly dressed in caps and gowns, and coming out a little
later, University of Oregon alumni.
Mr. Skeie and I were saying this morning that it was
time for the houses and other organizations to choose their
sisters and brothers who are to be honored with silver lov
ing cups.
We overheard this morning that the sororities have a
cup for the all-around freshman and another for the senior
who has been prominent in house service. These they award
at special house functions in honor of the seniors.
“From now on, the seniors will be guests at many func
tions on the campus, and among their own groups,” I said.
“Yes,” said Mr. Skeie,” and be sure to tell your friends
that we will be glad to help them choose appropriate gifts
for the graduates.”
“Yes, and at reasonable prices,” I said.

nine “Phyllisograms,” was cast out
by the aforesaid suddenly irate
sports editor, and retitled “Sports
Spatter.” In keeping with the
sheet, the column will today be
devoted to amazonian participa
tion in sports. Women have been
constantly improving in sports in
the past years, and while they can
never hope to compete with the
champions of the masculine world,
still there are many women who
can put up a stiff game of golf or
a smashing game of tennis, prov
ing herself a competent opponent,
to any man.
The field of sports hold many
feminine names, colorful and re
nowned for championship playing.
While women do not seem to excel
in mass playing, yet in the sports
requiring individual skill their
names are prominent. Few will ad
mit ignorance of Helen Wills
Moody’s remarkable racket work;
of Glenna Collett’s miraculous golf
swings; of Helene Madison’s am
phibious performances; and any
number of other women who have
developed sporting skills to high
In the same manner exceptional
skill in sports has been displayed
by women on the Oregon campus.
Frances Haberlach, W. A. A. prexy
and last year’s tennis star, can
smash a wicked ball over the net.
Dorothy MacEean can pitch and
bat a ball that has enough speed
and curves to make any man sit
up and take notice. Vivian Coss
plays a brand of basketball quite
reminiscent of Billy Keenan, quick,
light, and tricky. Both Hellen Dun
shee and Edith Jessop are swim
mers of note, having endurance,
form, and speed.
No one can say that the women
on the Oregon campus merely play
at sports, either. They play more
carefully than do the men, but
they play just as hard and just as
intensely in proportion. For ex
ample, Vivian Coss fractured two
ankle bones while playing basket
ball; Virginia Grone wrenched her
arm severely in a speedball game;
Frances Haberlach slipped a carti
lege in her knee also in a speedball
game; and Jane Warner sprained
her back in a fall from a horse.
Varsity Netmen
Defeat Frosh in
Match Yesterday
Teams Will Meet in Second
Contest at Three
Upsetting dope, the varsity ten
nis team, consisting of Jack Rhine
and Joe Kalisky, won a none-too
easy victory yesterday over the
frosh team, Bob Johnson and Don
The first set was won by the
frosh with a score of 6-4. Al
though playing was very evenly
matched, spectators picked the
frosh as winner.
In the second set Rhine, with
brainy playing, finally outwitted
the frosh to take the set, 13-11,
for the varsity.
Johnson and Lewis in the final
set became slightly rushed and at
tempted to make every ball count.
This was probably the reason for
losing the set 6-2, giving the match
to the varsity.
Rhine’s jockeying to get his op
ponents out of position and his ex
cellent placements were perhaps
the outstanding features of the
game. Kalisky appeared to be
slightly off form, and only occa
sionally did his steaming forehand
come into action.
Bob Johnson’s playing was
marked by a perfection of stroke
that is unusual in players of his

experience. He is said to have the
most perfect junior backhand on
the coast, and with this he has an
unusual ability to smash a bounced
lob. A thoroughly experienced
player, Lewis played a steady but
not outstanding- game.

Frosh, Rooks To Play
Baseball Here Today
The first of a four-game series
will be played between the frosh
baseball nine and the O. S. C.
rooks this afternoon at 4 o’clock
on Reinhart field. Although the
squad has been very successful in
pre-season games, this will be the
first real test of their ability.
Corvallis is reported to have an
unusually strong rook team.
Prince Callison, frosh baseball
mentor, has been putting the
squad through a hard workout
this week, matching them in sev
eral tilts against the varsity:
At present the main squad con

Psychologists Win in
Double-Header Brawl
A double-header game, played
between the psychology and geol
ogy kittenball sluggers yesterday
afternoon, resulted in a double win
for the psychology department
with scores of 8 to 5 and 11 to 10.
Doctors Taylor and Seashore'
starred for the psychology depart
ment, and Doctors Smith and
Hodge showed their merit on the
geology team. Mr. Dukek, who
umpired the game, went into im
mediate hiding afterwards, ac
cording to Ivan McCollum, man
ager of the psych team.
By statement of the players, the
first game was usual and ordi
nary, however the second one was
a controlled experiment to verify
the results of the first experiment.
It was conducted according to true
scientific procedure.
Sam Manerud Thinks Girls
Are Better Riders Than Men
Watch your horse just as closely
as he is always watching you, and
no doubt you will be a successful
rider,” suggests Sam Manerud,
owner of the Bangs riding acad
emy. “A horse is smart. He will
take advantage of y<5u if he can.
He is always looking for the mo
ment when he can turn and make
a run for the barn. Often people
think that a horse is just as me
chanically unemotional as a car,
and then is when they get their big j
surprise. That is just about the i
time when he makes a break for
it. The inexperienced rider will
then become frightened and convey
a great sense of nervousness to the
horse which gets him really riled.

of the day. Maybe at first here
will be a little discomfort in get

times, this will not be noticed,” Mr.
Manerud said.
“Don’t feel badly if you do not

Mr. Manerud. “Don’t ever feei that
you are too old to learn. People
who have ridden for years form
habits that are very bad and hard
to break. We take the inexper
ienced person and put him on a
horse, and he comes out a better
rider than many a so-called ‘ex
pert.’ I really believe that you
stand a better chance of being a
good rider if you have never had
a great deal of experience.”
Four years ago, Mr. Manerud
was in the road construction busi
ness. His house and barn were sit
uated at Sixteenth and Alder,
where the Delta Gamma house
now stands. He rented his barn
to Abe Bangs, who ran( the acad

out and moved the barn the fol

his bam at a cost of $2,000. It how

“To spectators viewing pole
vaulting on exhibition in the fin
ished form, it appears as all one
motion,” he explained. “However,
the action consists of three dis
tinct phases.”
The first phase pointed out by
the varsity veteran to would-be
jumpers is the run, in which the
vaulter gets up maximum speed
within a short distance. The next
step consists of the swing-up,
when the vaulter puts the pole in
the “box," reaches for maximum
height, and swings—not jumps—
in an endeavor to get his feet as
high over his head as possible.
Momentum from the run and
swing carries him above the cross
bar. At that point the jumper
gives a vigorous scissor kick with
his feet, which turns his body
