BRADSHAW AND FENTON ALSO
SHOW UP WELL
(By Jimmie Roberts.)
Oregon won her first conference
game last night, swamping the Uni
versity of Idaho five by a 31 to 6
score. The Gem State five, coming
here as a dark horse, proved a disap
pointment to the large crowd who ex
pected to see a close game. Oregon
won through the stellar work of her
three veterans, who were a whole
team in themselves. Walker was the
star of the evening's entertainment,
and scored most of the Oregon points.
Bradshaw put. up a great game at
guard and held the Idaho forwards
under wing, while Carl Fenton put up
his heady exhibition.
The Idaho team showed bursts of
speed at times and had ample chance
at the basket, but were either un
lucky or unable to hit it. Griffith’s
men are mostly all new at the inter
collegiate game and fouled frequently
by breaking dribbles. Referee Jami
son called numerous fouls on the
Oregon team, most of them “per
Oregon jumped into the lead at the
start and was never in danger, the
score standing 17 to 1 at half time.
At the beginnning of the second half
the Idaho team braced and held the
Varsity scoreless for a few minutes,
but the offense unlimbered again to
run up fourteen more. Idaho man

other foul bringing the total up to
The game was fairly free from
roughness, most of the fouls called
being minor infringements. Jamison
was chosen to referee at the last mo
ment at the demand of Pink Griffith.
The ex-captain made an able official,
and got away without a complaint
from either team. The game tonight
will be called at 7 p. m.

FI V K CONFERENCE COLLEGES
TRIANGULAR LEAGUE CEASES
Montana Dropped From Activity,
Idaho Declines to Enter. Others
The triangular oratorical league
now formed of Oregon, Montana and
Washington, originated six years ago,
though until three years ago Idaho
held tin1 place of Montana, will soon
be dissolved and in its stead a larger
one, formed of conference colleges,
will bo formed.
Contracts calling for annual oratori
cal contests between five of the North
west Conference colleges were sent
out today by Manager Geary of the
University of Oregon. This plan, to
make oratory one of the conference
activities, and which has been fos
tered by Oregon, will substitute the
Oregon-Washington-Mon tana inter
collegiate oratorical contests. Mon
tana is to be dropped from the com
petition. It was intended to include
all six of the Northwest Conference
colleges- Oregon, Washington, O. A.
C., W. S. 0., Whitman, and Idaho—
but Idaho has refused to participate
in this activity.
The first of the conference oratori
cal contests will be held at the Ore

NEWSPAPERS, WITH EAW SCHOOL SHEET
Number one, volume one, of the |
University of Oregon Law Depart-1
ment, “Mirnee,” a law student news
paper, printed in Portland, appeared
today on the campus in Eugene.
Though not exactly a competitor to
the Emerald, it gives the University
of Oregon the distinction of having
two newspapers. The new sheet is
typewritten, three columns and let
terhead sized. As the name indi
cates, the printing press, upon which
it is produced, is a mimeograph.
Strangely enough for a publication
from a law college, the publication
lacks an editorial page. And, like the
short lived flame, tfce Green Cap, it
lacks the name of its editors.
Rumors have it that Burns Powell,
former editor of the Oregon Emerald,

However, the baby newspaper is the
real thing. It contains “society,” per

sandwiched in between the “items.”
