Oregon Girls' Me Squad Beats Champs University Coeds Defeat Washington In Unofficial Meet By BOB McOIIX In the third annual Oregon Washington girls’ rifle team match, the unbeaten Duck marks men defeated the national cham pion Husky team last Saturday at the Oregon ROTC rifle range. Shooting a 10-women prone, matched-firing event, the Washing ton team were overwhelmed with a score of 1940 points to 1921. The high score for Oregon and also for the match was made by Alice Gius tina, freshman, with a fotal of 199 points out of a possible 200. High score for the Washington team went to Dorsey Reed with 198 points. In spite of the Washington team being the national intercollegiate girls champions, the win does not give Oregon the championship as the match is an unofficial event springing out of the rivalry of the two schools. No Entrance Fee Oregon does not enter the Na tional Intercollegiate shoot, spon sored by the National Rifle asso ciation, as the budget here makes no allowance for the necessary en trance fees, and because the match is a free rifle competition in which expensive target rifles are allowed, while the Oregon team uses regu lation equipment. After the match was fired, the Washington girls and their coach were the guests of the Oregon team at a luncheon at the Anchor age, attended by the military de partment officers and their wives. The Husky team was also the guest of the Duck unit at the Ore gon-Oregon State basketball game in the evening, and at the sopho more Whiskerino. Team Rosters Listed Firing on the Oregon team were Margaret Pollard, Marion Barrett, Martha Lampa, Claire Lyon, June Bennett, Catherine Miller, Thelma Bouchet, Alice Giustina, Barbara Todd, and Marjorie Schnellbacher. On the Washington team were Dorsey Reed, Jocelyn Dohm, Helen Lawrence, Rosalie Wilcox, Jean Kolinski, Ruth Goss, Maxine Cody, Vir ginia Wilder, Betty Wright, and Leysa Elwell. Symposium Team Visits Sheridan And Monmouth Members of the University sym posium discussion group made an other trip for two engagements at Sheridan and Monmouth yesterday. Those who traveled were Paul Kempe, Karl Zimmerman, and George Luoma. Professor Dahl berg, director of men’s sympo sium, accompanied the group. Chief point of interest for the team occurred after the propagan da and public opinion speeches were delivered when the audience was invited to ask questions. Dr. Gilkey Compares Oregon With Chicago By PAT ERICKSON Dean Gilkey looked about him a little mystified as we opened the door of the Alpha Delta Pi house to him Monday noon. “But I thought I was coming to a fraternity; he exclaimed. Alpha Delta Phi, the explana tion followed, is one of the strong est frats on the University of Chi cago campus and is known to the dean there. He thought at first his secretary had made a typographi cal error in his schedule! Several Appearances Dr. Gilkey, who is a dean of the Rockeleferrel Memorial chapel of the University of Chicago, came to Eugene Saturday, has already made several appearances on the campus, and will talk to the ASUO assembly today at 11 o’clock. At lunch the famous visitor found himself handicapped in seating people. He had made a record, he said, at California 231 years ago in seating six girls at one meal. He had never been able tc equal that number again until Sunday dinner last weekend at the Pi Phi house, here where he also seated1 six. Dean Gilkey re gards it as an accomplished feat. “That girl in the red dress, I don’t remember her name, is a kindred spirit,” he declared, “she positive ly stood waiting until I got around to seating her!” Chicago Expenses Higher Student expenses at the Univer sity of Chicago are much higher than at Oregon, Dean Gilkey says, in comparing the two schools. Board alone runs anywhere from $7 a w ek up. Of 35 fraternity houses in existence on the campus seven years ago, there are but 17 now. Heavily mortgaged, the or ganizations lost their houses dur ing the depression. Building land is so expensive in Chicago it is (Please turn to page four) Berg, Konschot; Olson Had Best Whisker Crops Gordon Berg-, Elmer Olson, and Fred Konschot grew the best beards for the Sophomore Whis kerino Saturday night in the opinion of the three barber judges—Charlie Elliott, Leo Def fenbacher, and Fred Schlick. Olson was on hand with a fiery red growth of fuzz that eclipsed the cultivating powers of all oth er second-year men who cared to offer themselves for competition. Berg's crop of whiskers was the blackest of the bunch, and Kon schot’s job of fancy trimming topped that of all other contest ants. ' Already sophomores are talk ing among themselves about the good old days when they carried whiskers. Many were the screams that were heard as electric shav ers jerked and sawed away the monuments to manhood. Dr. Gilkey Saus Life Improving Visitor Compares Today, Yesterday In Speech Here Like the furnace heated many times hotter than ever before pro ducing new steels lighter in weight, smaller in bulk but of greater en durance than ever before, the life one leads today is producing a quality of life with much the same characteristics of the new steel, Dean Charles W. Gilkey said in a talk at the music auditorium last night. People should not feel they have lost something or regret that they do not believe the things they be lieved in childhood, Dean Gilkey said. “Bridges will collapse under the weight of elaborateness.” Stronger Than Ever Today beliefs are lacking the superficial codes that add restric tions to restrictions, but they are stronger than ever before, Dean Gilkey asserted. The three fields most affected by this change are democracy, ethics, and religion, he said. Uni versities, laboratories of democ racy, are the best places to create the intelligent understanding so necessary to its maintenance. In the field of ethics the period when rules are discarded and people feel they can do what they please is the period of greatest progress, he said. Once the jump from the world that is to the world that ought to (Please turn to page Jour) Failure to Pay Fees Brings Suspension To Six Students Six University students were suspended last week for failure to pay the first installment on their registration fees, the Oregon busi ness office announced Monday.

Gleemen Sing At McArthur Court Tonight John Stark Evans Will Direct Group's First 1940 Concert When John Stark Evans steps to the platform tonight with his “SO Singing Gleemen in McArthur Court,” he’ll have at his baton’s command just twice the melodic lung power that Alfred Noyes had in his “Forty Singing Seamen in an Old Blark Bark" chanty. The occasion will be the Eugene Gleemen’s first formal concert of the 1940 season, and it will start at 8:15 p.m. All holders of ASIJO cards will be admitted free.

Replacing the present sys tem of one hour instruction three days a week, the spring schedule will call for one hour of class work on either Tuesday or Thursday, and a single drill period of two consecutive hours every Thursday. Colonel Robert M. Lyon, head of the military science department, explained that the change had been decided on after much deliberation. “We have used the one hour drill system for several years,” said the colonel, “and have finally decided that it is not a long enough period for efficient instruction.” The new schedule will necessitate many changes in the hours of other departments, as the ROTC students will not be able to schedule classes for Thursday afternoons. Proposed time for the Thursday drill is from 1 to 3 p.m. However this has not been definitely decided. Sigma Xi Will Hear Dr. Lloyd Staples “Quicksilver: Occurrence, Met allurgy, and Economics” will be the subject of an address by Dr. Lloyd W.

Open to law students exclusively, the Del Rey cafe filled rapidly on both floors as Maurie Binford and his band began their opening num bers for the law school’s winter term dance, first formal to be staged by the lawyers in several terms of social activity. Fellowship, Festivity Formal evening wear became slightly mingled with conventional attire later by the addition of a few townspeople, adding to the general air of “fellowship and fes tivity,” ‘ according to Bill Luber sky and Hugh Collins, dance pro motion committeemen. Dance heads report that gener al opinion, voluntarily voiced by guests, patrons, and students, in dicate that it was one of the out standing law school functions. Pa trons and patronesses for the eve ning were law school faculty mem bers and their wives and Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Andrews, with several law school alumni as special guests. Bryant Makes Exit On hand with his camera, but no ticket or press card, Jack Bry ant of 8-ball fame took several shots until vigilant doormen were instrumental in causing his exit, according to witnesses, with hair “bristling with rage.” Procured after a thorough can vas of downtown stores in order to fill size requirements, Dave Sil ver’s tux came through in good shape until aged threads parted at a seam, causing a hasty with drawal.
