Award Given to ‘March
Of Time’
Point System Considering Appeal,
Continuity, Presentation,
Originality Used
Sigma hall was last night
chosen winner of the ?50 cash
prize in the Emerald radio con
test. This decision was reached
hy the judges after the last of the
programs were given over KORE
yesterday. The silver loving cup
for the best opposite will go to
Phi Mu, the only women’s organi
zation to reach the finals.
The winning skit was a bur
lesque on the “March of Time”
program, broadcast over NBC,
and was full of comedy. Only a
piano, a clarinet, and a "raz
berry” instrument, the kind that
ejects the well - known “bronx
cheer,” were used as a background
to the 15 minutes of wisecracks
and gags. The Phi Mu entertain
ment consisted of trio numbers
a n d piano interludes cleverly
blended together by the continu
ity, which carried an advice-to
the-lovelorn idea. Questions from
the lovesick were answered with
appropriate trio numbers.

possible by the contributions of
several downtown and campus
merchants, began on April 24. At

ers being automatically disquali
fied when they failed to appear
on the scheduled date.
In the finals of the contest this
week four groups performed, Sig
ma hall, Yeomen, Phi Mu, and Phi
Gamma Delta. The Yeomen pro
gram, which consisted of Old
English drinking-house songs, was
mentioned as runner-up in the
men’s group. The Phi Gamma
Delta variety program also re
ceived honorable mention from the

peal. Judges were Naomi Harper,

test; James Doyle; and George
Callas, former radio editor.

Uncle Bill offers you a job in his

is an occupation you can not abide

Hank’s stock ranch may not look

it offers a job with prospects of a

College friends, a year or two

able to suggest fruitful leads. Fra

extremely helpful in finding open

Track Teams
Will Vie Here
June 1, 2 Is Date Set for
Northwestern Meet
Clash Will Bo Qualifying Round
For National Collegiate Event
In Los Angeles
The University of Oregon will
play host to six universities and
colleges comprising the northern
division of the Pacific coast con
ference Friday and Saturday, June
1 and 2, when the track and field
teams of Washington, Washington
State college. Idaho, Montana, Ore
gon State college, and Oregon
come together in the northwest
conference meet.
This year marks the first time
since 1928 that the event has been
held on this campus. Each team
is allowed to send 18 men, so that
100 of the best athletes in the
northwest wrill be seen. Admission
prices are 40 cents for students,
regardless of whether they hold a
strident body card or not, and $1
for others. Preliminaries are at 2
o’clock Friday and finals start at
2 on Saturday.
Committee Appointed
In order to facilitate handling
the great number of details which
will' arise because of the large
number of schools participating, a
student committee has been ap
pointed by Joe Renner, president
of the A. S. U. O.
This committee will handle pro
motion, advertising, and tickets,
and will take charge of entertain
ing the visiting athletes. 'Visitors
will be entertained by the student
body as a whole instead of by
houses acting individually .
Chick Burrows is general chair
man of the committee, assisted by
Jack Campbell, publicity; Ned
Simpson, track and field events;
Doug Ward, reception and enter
tainment of athletes and other vis
itors; and Grant Eade, tickets.
Interest High
Interest in the meet is running
high because of the close meets al
ready this year, and because the
clash will be a qualifying round
for the National Collegiate meet
to he held in Los Angeles June 19
20. In order to qualify for the Los
Angeles meet, an athlete must
equal or better standards set up
by those in charge of the National
Collegiates. Three Oregon men,
Bud Shoemake, Mason McCoy, and
Bob Parke have already qualified.
Oregon and Washington State
are expected to put on a close race
for first, with the Cougars fav
ored slightly. The University of
Washington is given an outside
chance, and may turn the balance
of the meet either way by winning
certain first places.
Three conference records appear
to be in danger, the javelin, shot
put, and 220 yard dash. Parke has
established himself as one of the
three best spear tossers in the na
tion, and holds the northwest rec
ord. George Theodoratus has
thrown the shot over 51 feet, and
now holds the mark in the north
west. Shoemake bettered the con
ference mark against Washington
Sprint Races Close
Oregon’s sprinters, who thus far
have been the class of the confer
ence, will encounter plenty of op
position from Kalbus, Idaho; Pe
den, Montana; Fyoclc, Oregon
State; and Plumb, Washington,
all of whom have done the dis
tance under 10 seconds. The quar
ter mile is close, as Patterson of

Beware of the Green Goose,
You Sinners, For It Noesall
Tuesday evening a sorrowful
stream of humanity will pour
forth from the campus and, weep
ing- and wailing, will stumble
through the swinging doors in a
mad search for “fire-water" in
which to drown their troubles.
“Woe is me! Woe, woe. is me!”
will moan some cringing coed, as
she looks, terrified, over her shoul
der and then turns, with great
drops of salty tears streaming
down her once rosy cheeks, to con
fide in a woe-begone specimen of
what was once a campus hero.
"Woe is me!” she will say. "I
thought I had lived all that down.
I was prepared to lead a new life,
to justify the faith my mother
put in me, and what happens? I
ask you, what happens? That
filthy Green Goose turns my very
heart outside in—I mean inside
out. Exposed, shamed, disgraced!
How did they find out? They say
they have spies under every car
pet. And what can I do? Noth

great sobs shaking her shoulders,
she salts the firewater with her
tears and, downing it with a de

wretched people, who, after seeing
themselves and their past deeds
exposed before the critical gaze of
the public, will despair of ever re

esteem and will seek the quickest
way into oblivion. Yes, you may
well weep, for you, too, may be
one of them. No transgression,
no hushed-up scandal, no buried
romance, is so well hidden that
the inhuman ferrets of the Green
