After a verv successful and profitable basketball season Ore
gon revert^ back to the regrettable status as a nonparticipant
in the Coast conference along- with Oregon State, Stanford,
and Montana during- the spring baseball and track season.
.Washington State and Idaho intend to field baseball and track
squads despite the shortage of experienced material and man
power, irregardlcss of the decision of the Oregon schools.
Hayward and Howe fields will not be the scene of conference
competition but an intramural softball league has been organ
ized and competition should be keen, especially since varsity
prospects have no other alternative than to play intramural
ball this season.
Intramural track hasn't been scheduled as yet, but Col. Bill
Hayward will undoubtedly form a track squad from the PE
track and field classes. Class competition and practice meets
with local high school, thinclads may be all that is in store for
future cindernten this spring.
Only by a progressive spring sports program can Oregon
hope to return to conference competition with a partially ex
p ricnced baseball and track squad next year if the board of
athletics should approve the return of Webfoot football, base
ball. and track to conference competition. W ashington will un
doubted!) have the edge on all of the other schools of the
Northern Division conference because the Huskies have con
tinued to field football, basketball, baseball and track teams.
In the past navy trainees have-dominated the starting lineups
but with the decrease in na\y enrollment civilian students are
breaking into the starting positions and gaining valuable experi
ence against army and navy teams while Oregon stands idle
because of a so-called manpower shortage. Unless Oregon acts
soon it will be at a distinct: handicap which will take several
seasons to overcome.

main floor. All University students
will sit in the breacliers and the
general public will be in the west
balcony. The stage will be in the
center of the court.
According to the Musical Am
erica, “elaborately staged and ex
cellently mounted, the ballet
proved a colorful and spectacular
moving' picture in dance which won
.appreciative response from large
audiences." The Omaha World Her
ald further remarks that the “cos
tuming, sets, and colorful group
ing, as well as the individual and
ensemble dancing demonstrated
why the San Francisco ballet lias
earned its excellent reputation.”
The San Francisco ballet, mak
ing its first Chicago appearance at
tue Civic Opera house last night
.•mowed what can happen to a mu
seum piece like “Coppelia" when
30-odd vivacious young West
Coasters get at it... it approached
one kind of dance ideal”—so re
marks Edward Barry in the Chi
cago Daily Tribune.
Besides the task of directing,
composing, arranging, and the en
tire ballet, William Christensen
also stars in the performances. The
company carries its own scenery
and musicians and a company of
2(5 artists. Almost the entire group
is made of young American talent.
Mr, Christensen himself says that
“if you like to be entertained you
will like the ballet. It is not a form
of entertainment which must be
cultivated— it is a form of creative
expression that not only tells a
story but also delights with its
sheer beauty of movement and

but you won't like it.”
