I hereby hand the Executive Commit

ed by the Glee Club is $115.44 but the
accredited balance is $223.01.

the season and the total gross expenses.
The total receipts of each opera house
are accompanied by theater statements

BASKETBALL MEN MAY
RECEIVE “O” SWEATERS
The athletic council has been asked to
grant “O” sweaters to the Varsity s
Basketball squad. The recent amend
ment to the student body constitution
granting "O's” to the men, said noth
ing about sweaters and it has been nec
essary to ask the council for them in
order that the letter may be useful as
well as ornamental. It Is not thought
that the council will refuse this re
quest and that the jerseys will be pre
sented at the next Student Body meet
The men entitled to basketball “O's"
are Jamison, Fenton, Sims, Walker and

Ding rendered the solo “The Song of

sang “Silver Threads” and wound up
the act with “Has Anybody Here seen
Kelly.” This was their first trip into
stageland except for the Glee club tour

success. They have not yet decided
to accept any other offers and it is
cloubtful if they will book for a scries

ZIMMERMAN AND RAY DEFEAT WASHINGTON 2T01
COLLIER MOTSGHENBAGHER BEAT STANFORD 3 TO 0
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON DEBATE TEAMS UNDER
LEDAERSHIP OF COACH BUCHEN SCORE GREAT
VICTORY OVER TEAMS FROM WASHING
TON AND STANFORD
OREGON TEAMS WIN ON BOTH SIDES OF QUESTION OF GRANTING SHIP SUBSIDIES
Coach Buchen Devises Method af Handling Affirmative Case that
Washington Talkers Cannot Cope With Effectively
By defeating the debate teams of both Washington and Stanfard last
night, Oregon won its second successive Tri-State debate championship.
The question was “Resolved: That that the United States should adopt
a system of ship subsidies.” Oregon’s affirmative team defeated Washington
2, while Oregon’s negative team won from Stanford 3 to 0, and at the same
time Washington also defeated Stanford 3 to 0 at Seattle.
Oregon’s affirmative team, consisting of Zimmerman and Ray, presented a
masterly case and it may fairly be said that Hoover and Clifford, the Washing
ton representatives, though excellent as peakers, hardly made a dent in the in
genious line of argument that Coach Ruchen had evolved. The feature of
this debate was the large amount of extempore talking that was done. By the
very nature of the affirmative argument, Washington was compelled to frame
its case on the spot and Hoover especially did some fine informal speaking.
L. L. Ray opened and outlined the affirmative case, lie was followed by
Raymond Clifford, for Washington, who endeavored to tie Oregon down to the
negative’s interpretation of the question, and called for a more detailed outline
of the proposed plan of subsidies. This was given in a clear exposition by
Howard Zimmerman, the Oregon leader, who closed the affirmative construc
tative discussion. Glen Hoover then spoke for the negative. He confessed
himself surprised by Oregon’s presentation of the case, and atempted to speak
against ship subsidies in general. Each speaker w'as then allowed a live-minute
'flic judges, Principal J. R. Wilson, of Portland Academy, Principal It. H.
Herdman, of Portland High School, and Hon. R. W. Wilbur, of Portland,
rendered a 2 to 1 decision for the affirmative.
Oregon’s negative team won on the same question from Stanford at Palo
Alto, but this decision was unanimous. Press dispatches state that the work
of the Oregon team was remarkably good, and that special credit for the vic
tory is due to “Prexv” Collier for wonderful rebuttal argument. His conten
tion was, that foreign ships can carry our goods cheaper than can our own
ships, and that we should not divert our capital from the fields where it is
relatively more effective. He thus showed that ship subsidies, would have a
tendency toward economic loss and impaired industrial efficiency. E. F.. Tin
eher and P. N. Wood composed the Stanford team. The judges were Harris
Weilstock and Max Thielsen and Judge Stanley Hall, all of San Francisco.
From Pa1a Alto Coach Ruchen leaves directly for Salt Lake, where he
will be joined by Zimmerman and Ray before the debate with the University
of Utah on the same question.
The news «;f Oregon’s victory was the signal‘for considerable rejoicing
and jollification among the students.
During the past week J. Earl Jones
and Raymond Heider, two juniors in
the Civil Engineering Department, have
been engaged in surveying near Wood
burn. The men learned many things
about the practical side of their work.
