The Final Debate Other Winners
The Sorosis literary society at the
college won the seventh and last of
the debates in the series which took
dace in the chapel . Thursday eve
ning, and as a result will hold the
Gatch cupfor the college " year of
1905-06. Much interest appeared to
be centered in the outcome, and a
large audience filled the chapel.
The question was, "What is Am
bition? "TisV Glorious Cheat."
The expression is a line from thel
well known poem on the subject of
ambition by N. P. Willis. The
Utopians had the affirmative, and
their speakers were. Miss Parsons,
Miss Wright and Miss Hill. They
contended that ambition leads the
individual on' to dazzling heights
and that when he reaches the, goal
what he really finds there is empti
ness; hollo wness and disappoint
ment. They declared' selfishness
to be the controlling, in fact the
only motive in ambition and cited
many instances in history in proof
of their contention. .
The Sorosis team was Miss Ag
nes Sweek, Miss Pauline Davis and
Miss Edna Irvine. " They held that
a mind in which there is no am
bition to be unbalanced, and such
a mind is certain, if not led upward
to be controlled by abject passions,
and maintained that nations whose
people are ambitious are leading
nations of the world. They sought
to prove that all great discoveries
and inventions and the civilization
. these have promoted, are the re
sult of ambition. They argued'
-that nations or trbes whose people
are unambitious are without prog
. ress or civilization, citing China,
the Hindoos and others.
The judges were E. E. Wilson,
Mrs. Horner and Major Frank Ed
wards. The decision was unanim
ous, features 01 tne program
were a vocal solo by Mrs. H. W.
Laughlin, and an instrumental so
lo by Miss Inez Colvig.
There are three inscriptions on
the trophy. One is ' ' Amicitias,
1902-3; " another "Pienans, 1903-
04" and the , third, "Feronians,
1904-5." Ihese inscripticns give
tie name of the, society that has
won the cup and the year , for
which that society has held it. The
new inscription will be "Sorosis,
1905-6." , -

Next Autumn 0. A. C. Football Men
They Will Play Berkeley.
The'OAC football team makes
its first trip to California next. fall.
A game' has been scheduled with
the University of California, to be
played at Berkeley on an October
date, not yet, aW obvious reasons
made public--$' Manager Fred
Stimson is 'alsd.Scjonsidering the
question of cfre'duling the big
game of the year- twith the .'Univer
sity of Washing-ton at Seattle,
That of course is the Thanksgiving
date. The date has been offered
the OAC men, and negotiations
looking to the signing of contracts
are in progress. Last year Wash
ington had the University of Cal
ifornia for its Thanksgiving d.y
atti action. It is the turn of the
Washingtonians. to come to Cor-
vallis, but if terms to suit can be
arranged Manager Stimson may
take "his mentor the final game of
the season to the Evergreen state.
The Multnomath Athletic Club
is also a candidate for a game wifh
Steckle's men, but as yet no con
tract has been signed. Manager
Stimson refuses to make, any more
Christmas games on account of the
long period of training in which it
keeps the men, which is ' neither
satisfactory to the men nor to the
faculty, The Washington State
College at Pullman also wants to
come to Corvallis for a game, but
so far no Valley team has been
found to stand for half their , ex
penses and on that account a con
tract with the Washington College
men is hanging fire.

For the Year Students Give Ovation
to President Gatch.
The last chapel exercises of the
current college ' year were held
Thursday. . The students took ad
vantage of the occasion to give an
ovation to President Gatch. In the
course of a brief address. Dr. Withy
combe paid the president a high
personal tribute, referring in glow
ing terms to the great growth of
the college in numbers and effi
ciency under President Gatch' s
administration. ' The greater part
01 the creait ior tne cnangea con
ditions, he declared was due to the
work of .the president. . He closed
a beautiful tribute to the president s
character by wishing for the col
lege many more years of con
tinued growth and constantly ex
panding greatness under his wise
administration . A big burst, of a p-
plause, long continued, closed the
impressive scent, which was renew
ed shortly afterward with increas
ed vigor when Mark McCallister
stepped to the edge of .the platform
and proposed nine Rahs for Pres
ident Gatch. Five hundred lusty
lunged 1 ads and lasses, standi: g
en mass joined in a storm ot col
lege 3rells that threatened to raise
the roof, and which when the yells
ceased was turned into . another
burst of applause by hand clapping.
The testimonial was an enthusiasm
tic one, for President Gatch is
widely popular " with the student
The Maccabees of Corvallis are
out after new members this month
and the way the applications are
coming in the degree team will
have its hands full.-- It is the in
tention of the members here to put
in 50 additions and it is needless to
say they will do it.
The Maccabees are the only fra-
ternal order furnishing a sick and
accident policy seperate from life
policy, at such low rates. It will
pay'yon to investigate it and put in
an application. They are making
an offer which will never be made
again and as the saying goes, you
have the chance of your life to join
one of the foremost .fraternal orders
of the day. .
There will . be something doing
at their "meeting next - Wednesday
evening, June' 14th and all mem
bers should be out. ,
