O. A. C. BEATEN IN ROUGH
GAME " BY SCORE OP
21 TO 18
FENTON IS STAR OF GAME
Rangy Captain Gets 16 Points.
Contest Characterized by
Rough Tactics. Three Field
(By Fred Dunbar)
Oregon came back last night and
the sweet revenge was hers in the
third game of the series of basket
ball now being played between Ore
gon and 0. A. C. The score was 21
to 18. The sessions were slow, only
three baskets being made from the
field, the balance of the points be
ing thrown from the foul line.
The game was a fight from the
start to the finish, each side deter
mined that the other should not
make baskets and willing to take
chances on making fouls rather than
on letting the baskets be thrown.
The result was that 38 fouls were
called on the two teams, 20 on Ore
gon and 18 on O. A. C. Few shots
were made at the basket and those
were usually from a distance, most
of the time being taken up in fight
ing for possession of the ball and in
working it down to within shooting
distance of the basket.
Keep Up Fast Pace.
This is really the first game seen
here this season which the Varsity
has kept up their pace during the en
tire game, and the work last night,
■while perhaps not as fast as it has
been at times during other games,
was such that every man was play
ing his limit both halves.
The feature of the game was Fen
ton’s splendid exhibition of foul
throwing, the big Captain dropping
in 16 out of 18 trials from the foul
line. One miss in each half were the
only flukes he made and his work
on the floor was much better all
around. Walcott and Koch each got a
basket, Walcott in the first half and
Koch in the second. Both men
played good games and both shots
were exceptionally good ones. Rice
against Dewey was at all times his
equal and was able a number of
times to get away and go down the
floor with his dribbles. Bradshaw
covered the floor in good style and
both Sims and Wheeler, substituted
for Bradshaw and Rice in the second
half, did good work.
Dewey O. A. C. Star.
For O. A. C. Dewey perhaps play
ed the best game, handling the ball
a great deal in his efforts to work
the ball into their own territory.
Seiberts did not show up so well as
in former games but he secured the
only basket which 0. A. C. made.
Between halves a burlesque was
put on by two teams, one of which
was togged out in football uniforms
and the other as a general medley.
The second half was considerably
faster than the first and the Aggies
were dangerously near Oregon’s
score several times but though only
one point separated the two scores,
they seemed unable to accomplish
the deed. This period was more
broken up by foul throwing than the
first. Under the new ruling, ■when
ever a man has four personal fouls
called on him, for every personal
that is called on him afterwards, the
opposing team is awarded a point
besides being given a throw for the
basket. If this is thrown, two points
are gained. This caused consider
able arguments and debate as the
fouls came so thick and fast that ii
was difficult to keep the numbei
straight. Oregon received one poini

RECEIVES “STRIFE” WITH
MUSICAL TREAT IS GIVEN
Prof. Reddie, as Roberts, Gives
Admirable Interpretation of
Part. Ash and Bronaugh
Show Up Well.
(M. H. S.)
History seems bent on repeating
itself; after seeing the triumphant
strife of the University against the
“Aggies,” a good portion of the bas
ketball crowd sifted townward and
took in “Strife.” Approximately
500 saw the play, and if applaus%
measures appreciation, the play was
a success, of course from the stand
ard of an amateur production.
Taking the various phases of the
production in order of procedure, the
music, it must be admitted was the
treat of the evening. The musical
program was selected with care and
taste by Miss Forbes. The selection
was well adapted to the play, and,
added to the appreciation of the
theme it helped bring out.
Dance Unique Feature.
As a prelude to the play, “The
Dance of the Starving Women” was
fanciful, and gave a unique feature
seldom seen. The scene was in
keeping with the theme; dark and
sombre. The dance was well done,
especially that of Miss Campbell as
The University of Oregon Drama
League, in offering “Strife," has ad
hered to its motto, “The play’s the
thing.” It is a play that treats of a
broad, universal problem that the
world has faced since the birth of
Industry. It is the bitter, cruel con
flict of capital and labor. The mode
that John Galsworthy has chosen in
developing his theme is that of a
silent, ironical, impartial observer.
The struggle centers about two
figures, Anthony, the chairman of
the board of directors of an indus
trial corporation, and Roberts, the
fanatical strike leader. The indus
trial strife ends in compromise, but
the struggle of two men of opposite
principles ends in defeat for both.
Play Hard to Portray.
“Strife,” as a play is beset with
many difficulties in acting, especial
ly from the standpoint of amateurs.
It deals with characters, not local
but universal; it requires much
power in character portrayal.
Mr. Reddie, as Roberts, was the
pillar of the play; without him it
would have been weak in effect. He
not only took his part artistically,
but helped improve the other parts
at the same time. His strength of
emotional acting made the fiery
fanaticist, Roberts, a reality.
Secondary honors are shared be
tween Miss Young, Mr. Ash and Mr.
Bronaugh. Mr. Ash’s interpretation
of Wilder, the lethargic hypocrite,
turned many of his lines into a good,
Mr. Bronaugh, as Scantlebury, act
j ed the glutted epicure admirably.
I Miss Young gave a pretty and sym
j pathetic Interpretation of Annie
Roberts, but the part was small.
Mr. Howe as Anthony, the iron
hearted director, did well, consider
ing that his acting was thrown into
direct competition with that of Mr.
Reddie’s. Mr. Marshall as Edgar
gave a spirited interpretation. Miss
Stebno as Madge and Miss Shearer
as the wife of the superintendent
gave strength to the women's parts.
The part of Frost, taken by Mr.
Naylor, deserves special mention for
a small part. It was, to say the
least, clever, humorous and typical
of the English servant type.
