TUESDAY, MARCH 3, 19 14.
Tim basket ball season has almost
ronehed its close, and at the present
time Oregon is tall-endcr in the con
ference. and barring the posBibillty
of winning in the remaining two
games with O. A. C., wil be recorded
as the weaker team of the two Ore
gon state institutions.
These two games, if won by the
University team, will tie the state
championship. These two games
may he won the easier for the right
kind of support from the Oregon
rotors. Hut let it ho the kind that
no man on the team need he ashamed
of having received.
Only the most ordinary everyday
rules of politeness tire needed as a
guide to sportsmanlike conduct for
those who do not already know what
this means. A foul, for instance, en
titles the opposing team to a free try
for a goal, but this Is no better than
a guarded shot, during the heat of
actual play. If the crowd in the
bleachers are doing their best to
ratt !e the foul-thrower.
Oregon has won In the past with
out having to resort to any of the
ungentlemanly tactics on the part of
the rooters which were displayed In
last KrI lay night’s game, and cun
win In the future without sullying
the reputation for fair play, which,
in the years gone hy. lias always gone
hand in hand with the Oregon spirit.
And if victory may not he hud by
fair means, at least let a good repu
tation be preserved while losing.

OZOXE SYSTEM HOT AIK.
Paso Robles, Cal., Feb. 2 7.
To the Editor of The Emerald:
A recent issue of The Emerald
contains a suggestion that an ozone
machine be installed in the library,
investigations made by two eminent
physicians, under the auspices of the
Journal of the American Medical As
sociation, have shown that the con
centration of ozone used in ventila
tion is not sufficient to be of sani
tary value, and is also quite prob
ably injurious to the lungs. Find
ings of this nature by competent in
vestigators are of interest and
worthy of consideration.

PAPER CUPS SHOULD BE
USED, SAYS PROF. BOVARD
Believes Freshmen Made Error
By Not Following Example
Set by Sophomores.
Paraffine puncno cups, with their
silver containers, were conspicuous
by their absence at the Freshman
dance two weeks ago. The much
touted sanitary cups purchased by
the university, and used at the
Sophomore dance, were substituted
by the glass cups formerly used.
Prof. John Bovard, who was re
sponsible for the introduction of the
paraffine cup.here at the universi
ty, said this weak that he thought
that the Freshman Class made a
serious mistake when they failed to
follow the example set by the Sopho-^
mores. “The university has pur
chased 15,000 of the paraffine cups
and 5 0 silver containers. The cups
are sold to the students at $4 a thou
sand, and the containers are loaned.
A thousand cups were used by the
Sophomores at their dance, and I
must admit that they were not a de
cided success, but this was due to
the inexperience in handling the
cups. They have been a success
wherever tried out thoroughly.
“The untveTsity is supposed to set
the example in matters of improve
ment, especially in sanitation. The
danger that lies in the bacteria of
the punch cups after several persons
have used them is multiplied when
they are treated to a so-called cleans
:ng process by dipping them in the
saturated solution, made by washing
hundreds of glasses. Bacteria can
not be washed away by such a trivial
process. If the individual cups were
used' a precedent would be set which
would not only result favorably to
the university, but to others who
would fall in line. All it needs is a
“There are nearly 14,000 cups that
the university purchased for use at
university dances. The university
should, in ray judgment, furnish
these cups free to the students.”
A number of the silver containers,
valued at 35 cents each, met the fate
of souvenirs at the last dance, and
the class was compelled to pay for
TEN MFN SIGN UP FOR
Gym Instructor Shockley Hat
His Own Method of
“Ten men have signed up for
swimming instruction,” said Edward
Shockley, gym instructor, today.
“However, there doubtless would
have been a great many more sign
up if the work would count as gym
oro.iits. As such is not the rase,
that probably accounts for the small
number of men who have signed up.
“For the most part, nearly all the
men In the university are good swim

have tried it at some time, but have
not had favorable conditions under
which to practice. As for those men
