Track Jinx Today
Dual Meet Starts at 3,
On Hayward Field;
WSC Won Twice Last
Year by Half Point
The bitter track feud between
the University of Oregon and
Washington State college will
flare again on Hayward field at 3
o'clock today when Karl Schalde
man's northern division champions
from Pullman will attempt again
to conquer Bill Hayward's crack
cinder squad.
For four year the Cougars have
held the spell of the evil one over
their most dreaded opponents, the
Ducks. Twice last year Oregon
was nosed out by Washington
State by no more than a single
WSC Former Winner
In the Oregon-Washington State
dual meet at Pullman last year
one-fifth of a point separated the
tow teams, the score being WSC
65 and three-fifths, and Oregon 65
and two-fifths. At the Northwest
conference meet in Seattle, Wash
ington State made 50 and three
fourths points and Oregon made 49
and three-fourths points. Every
thing indicates that today’s meet
will be equally as close.
Oregon, however, has the edge
today. Even Karl Schaldeman of
WSC concedes the fact, but he
says it Wil be close, whereas the
canny Colonel Bill says that Ore
gon will win if his boys come
through as is expected.
Olympic Possibilities
Both teams will parade Olympic
candidates. Bill Benke, versatile
Washington State junior, is dyna
mite in the sprints, quarter-mile,
low hurdles, and the broadjump.
Today he is expected also to take 1
a lap in the mile relay. However,
a recent leg injury may keep him
out of some of the events.
Oregon’s Bud Shoemake and
“Squeak” Lloyd also are putting in
their plugs toward the Olympic
tryouts. Last year Shoemake ran
the 100-yard dash in 9.5 seconds,
and this year he is one of the
nation’s big threats in the century
and the furlong. Lloyd will com
pete in five events today: the 100,
the 220, the broadjump, the high
jump, and the low hurdles. He is
given a good chance of breaking
Dan Kelley's 20 year record of 24
feet, 3 inches in the broadjump to
day. Last year he jumped 25 feet,
8 and one-half inches.
Others Named
Besides Benke, Washington
State will rely on Jack Orr, 48
second quarter-miler; Harry Net
tleton, half mile; Morris Fiser,
high jump and broad jump; Glen
Taylor, hurdles; Jack Holstine,
javelin; and Dwight Scheyer,
Oregon’s point getters will be
Howie Patterson, 440-yard dash;
Captain George Scharpf and Sam
McGaughey, distances; Marvin
Janak, pole vault and high jump;
and Leonard “Dutch” Holland,
sophomore discus man.
Ralph Colman of Corvallis will
be the starter, and Walter Hum

Crowd Throngs McArthur to
Hear Pendarvis
One of the largest crowds ever
:o assemble at a University of Ore
gon dance jammed the drab con
fines of McArthur court when Paul
Pendarvis and his orchestra swung
nto the melodies opening the an
lual Sigma Delta Chi Jouralism
Tam last night.
Approximately 700 closely
oacked couples milled around the
floor. The large balcony surround
ing the dance floor was well-filled.
Featured on the evening’s pro
gram were ceremonies pledging
seven University journalism maj
ors to Sigma Delta Chi, national
journalism honorary. Those who
received the honor were: Howard
Kessler, LeRoy Mattingly, Gordon
Connelly, Darrel Ellis, Ken Kirt
ley, Marvin Lupton, and Bill Pease.
The special intermission floor
show, featuring Eddie Scope, Mar
jorie Beattie, Jack Pierce, and the
Four Rhythm Rascals, kept on
lookers knotted around the orches
tra platform. The balcony audience
stood in the seats to obtain a
better view of the performers.
One of the finest orchestras to
appear on the campus, Pendarvis’
orchestra received the unanimous
approval of the crowd. Rounds of
prolonged applause followed every
number, as favorites of campus
eds and coeds were played.
Even with special 1 o’clock per
mission granted coeds, listeners
were reluctant to leave after the
last number had been played.
Success of the event was attrib
uted to the efforts of the Sigma
Delta Chi dance committee in
bringing the orchestra to the city.
Under the leadership of Dan E.
Clark II, the committee has been
working out details for the affair
since early last term. The com
mittee was made up of Dan E.

Bill Marsh, George Calas, Paul
Conroy, Berk Mathews, Don Cas

Race Dunking Worth $252.69
Moot Court Decides
The physical injuries and social
disgrace suffered by Harry McCall
when he was millraced by members
of the law school student body,
April 6, were worth only $252.69
which Robert Miller, co-defendant
with Tallant Greenough, must pay,
a jury of 12 prominent students
decided in Judge Orlando J. Hollis’
moot trial court last night.
The plaintiff declared that on
April 6, in accordance with the
long established custom of dunking
newly elected law school student
body officers, the defendants, in
company with other members of
the law school student body mill
raced him at the Anchorage al
though he had not been elected but
merely appointed sergeant-at-arms
by Robert Hunter, then president.
Although he escaped from his
captors in front of Villard hall and
sought refuge in the house of Mrs.
Winifred Simpson, he was recap
tured and forcibly escorted to the
Anchorage and there thrown in.
The violent contact with the cold
water aggravating a sinus disor
der and causing him to lose three
days’ time to say nothing of the
mental anguish caused by having
to disrobe in public. He asked
damages totalling $4,300.
The defense contended that Mc
Call was fully aware of the cus
tom of millracing the officers, and
by accepting the appointment gave
his consent to the affair, “which
was only a game, after all.”

The queen and her royal court

On Friday evening, the queen

“Of course I shall accept the

pRequiem9 Audience Thrilled
By Choir’s Performance
“Requiem,” one of Verdi’s most
colorful and dramatic composi
tions, was presented last night as
the annual spring concert of the
Polyphonic choir under the direc
tion of Paul Petri, professor of
voice at the University school of
The choir and soloists, accom
panied by Robert Gould at the
organ, thrilled the audience of 500
students and townspeople. The
emotional climax of the Mass came
in the last section of the program,
“Lord, Deliver My Soul” (Libera
Mej. This selection was a soprano
solo beautifully sung by Mrs. L. J.
Murdock with the accompaniment
of the full choir.
In the opening Requiem and
Kyrie, sung by soprano, mezzo
soprano, tenor, bass, anti chorus,
the voices ranged from the full
chorus to almost a whisper. The
Sanctus, a Fugue for the entire
choir, was inspiring.
The solos were sung by Mrs. L.
J. Murdock, soprano, Mrs. Bruce
Spalding, mezzo-soprano; Charles
J. Fahey, tenor; and Robert Mc
Knight bass. All of the soloists are
prominent in civic music circles.
Both Mrs. Spalding and Mr. Mc
Knight were former students in
the University school of music.
The "Requiem,” which is a
prayer for the deliverance of the
dead souls from purgatory, is one
of Verdi’s most passionate and
emotional works. The Polyphonic
choir and the soloists have been
working on this Mass since last
tact or attempt to contact ner.
Enraged fresehmen said that dam
ages of at least $10,000 should be
sued for by Miss Brown.
"Certainly the frosh will win
again this year,” the Kappa frosh
prexy fumed. “They have won for
years, and we are going to con
tinue. Tell those weak-kneed soph
omores that we challenge them
right back.”
Freshman statisticians who were
contacted yesterday revealed that
the superiority in numbers of the
sophomores boasted about in Fri
day’s compiling of misstatements
by Harbert, was nothing but paper
strength. True facts show that ap
proximately one-third of those reg
istered as sophomores are third
year students without JC’s.
This fact did not bother the
freshmen, however. President June
suggested that if the sophomores
felt incapable of handling the sit
uation without the aid of these
spurious members of the class of
1938, the freshmen would gladly
take on all of them.
The irritatdd yearling defend
ers of the sterling reputation of
the 1939 men, hoped that their
swift action would serve as a
warning to any other wayward
sophomores who attempted to
scatter false propaganda. Second
year men are advised by these
“avengers” to watch their remarks,
as freshmen in key positions are
ready to turn over all those who
defame the name of the eclass of
Harbert, the unfortunate orig
inator of sophomore propaganda,
