Complications Arise in Trial of
Young for Printing Story of
The trial of “Dutch” Young, City
Editor of the Emerald, charged with
libel on the Thanksgiving Dormitory
dance, commenced Tuesday evening in
Laurean Hall. Alfred Collier and
James Donald were attorneys for the
prosecution, Carlyle Geisler and Fred
Hardesty for the defence, David
Pickett, president of the Laureans

Difficulty arose in selecting the
jury, for several had been subpoenaed
as witnesses, and others confessed to
mental and ethical defects. The final
panel was composed of Walter Kim
mell, Harlan Pefley, Luton Ackerson,
Earl Blackaby, Martel Mickey, and
The prisoner confessed to writing
parts of the article in question, but
later denied the penname of “Cinder
ella Samanthy Jones.” The first wit
ness for the prosecution, Millar Mc
Gilchrist, testified that the defendant
had once participated actively in I.
W. W. movements at Portland, and
that he had heard Young and a re
porter in the Emerald offices discuss
ing this Dormitory dance the day be
fore publication. The only hitch in
the evidence was to establish the
identity of an important accomplice.
It became necessary to adjourn be
fore this point was cleared.
Frequently the prisoner was repri
manded by Judge Pickett for conduct
unbecoming a court room. Great ex
citement was shown at different
stages of the trial. At one time the
prosecution was completely demoral
ized by the commotion in the jury,
when that body attempted to rear
range their seats to get a better look
at the prisoner. The trial is to con
tinue next Tuesday at 7 P. M., in

End of 22-18 Score With
For five successive baskets the
spectators at the Gamma Delta Gam

breath while neither team seemed able
to break the tie. Not until the last

22 to 18, finally determined. This is
the first time the Gamma Delta
Gamma team has appeared on the

the Oregon Club. The Oregon Club
was defeated in their first game by
the Kappa Alpha Theta team, but
since then has chalked up three suc
cessive victories to its credit.
Yesterday’s game carried features
in the remarkably pretty and spec
tacular basket throwing of Florence
Avery, the Gamma Delta Gamma

passing between Bess Young and
drace Hartley, of the Oregon Club.
Gamma Delta Gamma is scheduled
to play a second game against Beth
Reah this afternoon. Referees are
