OREGON 5*1 I v> I L*GrrST'S EMERALD VOL. XV. EUGENE, ORE., SATURDAY, FEB. 28, 1914. NO. LV. nnua * Oregon wins FROM “AGGIES” 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 Baskets Thrown. (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 23,725 LOAVES OF BREAD EATEN YEARLY AT DORM. 65 Students Require Six Gal •Ions of Milk and Twenty Pounds of Meat Daily.

Jack-the-Grabber came the near est to being bagged Wednesday night of any time in his long career. Hen ry Heidenrelch, a Junior in the Uni versity, was going homeward last night at about 10:30. A block away, on Twelfth street, he heard screams. Heidenrelch cut through the lots that lie between Eleventh and Twelfth streets. Two girls, at the corner of Twelfth and Hilyard, had just met. Jack-the-Grabber. They screamed .again when Heiden reich approached them. But he soon made it clear that he was not Jack returning. He escorted the girls home and then started back upon a systematic search for Jack-the-Grabber. On Fifteenth street he found Jack hid ing behind a tree scarcely 100 feet away. Heidenrelch stalked him, but Jack saw him, and leaping over a hedge, darted away with Heiden reich in hot pursuit and gaining at every stride. By this time the neighborhood was aroused, and people were throwing Jheir windows open. H^Iack had the advantage of know IHfethe ground.

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 “Plenty.” 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, lusty laugh. 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.
