Probably you aren't worrying
about it. Very possibly you haven’1
even noticed it. But whether yor
have or haven’t noticed, this sports
page is undergoing a bit of a
change. The department is chang
This column, which your corres
pondent has thoroughly enjoyed
dishing up, is on the threshold oi
a dormant spell. You may have
taken liftle of it and cared to take
less. But I got a kick out of bat
ting it out.

Taking over the Emerald sports
page are two capable and earnest
young men who have been work
ing hard and well all year.
John Pink, the Astoria Baro
meter baiter, and Elbert Hawkins,
sports philosophist and psycholog
ist par excellence, are the lads.
Hawkins and Pink know the
ways of the diamond, the cinder
track, the gridiron, the maple
court, and all the other fields of
athletic endeavor. They’ll have a
capable staff assisting them a
staff which has made possible
your sports page this year.
Messrs. Pink and Hawkins will,
rumor has it, take turns at ham
mering out pithy dope column for
your coffee glance each morning.
The lads can do it well, and they
Your correspondent will see you
again, now and then, through the
old ‘‘Firing Line” medium. I’ve en
joyed writing this colmun regular
ly and am sorry to leave. But that,
somebody has said, is life. I apolo
gize for the mistakes I’ve made.
They have been plentiful.
So, Messrs. John Pink and El
bert Hawkins, take it away.
If you’re interested in what your
ex-correspondent may have to say
in the future, read the Eugene
News, starting next week.

As Commentator Pink told you
yesterday, this weekend will be
one of the fullest, athletically
speaking, in several blue moons—
at least since last spring term. Al
ways insert an ‘jIF” in eapital
letters somewhere in any sports
prophecy, however, for O. J. Plu
vius is, they tell us, still lurking
around in the murky skies.
Anyway, it ought to be a lot of
fun. Deciding- whether to watch
Bill Sayles work against the Bea
vers or to take in the ^relays will
present a problem to many. Then
there’s a football game after that, j

If Hobby Hobson's Webfoots can
split with Oregon State, they’ll
not have to listen to any state
championship clams of Willamette |
and Portland U. this season. Spec
Keene’s Bearcats had every right
to the mythical title last spring
and the Pilots were runners-up.
But the present edition of dia
mond Ducks have split with both
Bearcats and Pilots. Those teams
can bounce Oregon State all
spring, and it still won’t matter a
whit. Just two games from the
Beavers, and Oregon has as much
hold on the state championship as
New Pledge Rule
Not to Be Blocked
The University of Oregon ad
ministration has nothing to do with
any resolutions concerning pledg
ing of men, passed by the inter
fraternity council, Virgil D. Earl,
dean of men, said yesterday.
This statement clears up any
doubt concerning the resolution re
cently passed by the council elim
inating the necessity of a specified
prep decile rating for men before
they can be pledged.
Enrollment in the University will
be the only requirement for pledg

base line. Abe Merritt fixed that,
however, when he sent a high fly
