SENDER OMITS OREGON
MEN FROM “MRS”
Fenton Close Second to Savage on
First—All-Northwest Team of
Not a single University of Oregon
basketball player was given a berth
on Johnny Bender’s mythical All
Northwest five, recently published in
a Spokane paper. The best quintet
that the Washington State College
mentor could find was composed of
Savage, center; Byler, of Washington,
and Cooper , of O. A. C., forwards;
and Sampson, of Washington State
College, and May, the big football
player of the Aggies, at guard.
Fenton was a close second to Sav
age, said Bender, but he is the only
one of the Oregon five, that even
breaks into print at Bender’s request.
Lowry is discredited in the eyes of
his coach on account of his inability
to heave baskets. Sampson is termed
a “very brilliant and tireless guard.”
When shown the list, Bill Hayward
would not comment, other than to say
that it was true that Oregon had but
few All-Northwest men this year.
He refused to pick a five until after
the O. A. C. games.
AMUNDSEN LIVES LECTURE
WITHOUT USING PRONOUN “I”
Without the use of a single per
sonal pronoun “I” during the entire
lecture, Captain Amundsen describes
his Antarctic explorations and dis
coveries, giving most of the credit to
his crew, and members of the party
that were with him during the final
dash to the South Pole. Amundsen
will lecture in Eugene, April 1, at the
Christian Church, under the auspices
of the University Y. M. C. A.
At a recent lecture in Chicago,
from which hundreds were turned
away, Captain Amundsen received a
gold medal from the Chicago Geo
graphical Society, presented to him
by President Henry C. Cowles, of the
Universtiy of Chicago, president of
the society. During this lecture
Amundsen exploded the theory of the
intense cold at I he southern-most reg
ions of the earth, by declaring and
proving with his records, that the
coldest weather experienced was 75
degrees below zero, while at the pole
itself the day was sunshiny, clear
and mild as to temperature.
