Doughnut League Basketball
Games to Be Resumed
Sigma Nu Versus A. T. 0. and
Sigma Chi Versus Dorm Are
the Next Contests.
Standing of Teams
Won Lost Per cent

A. T. O.
The nearness of examinations put a
stop to further hostilities in the Dough
nut league last vvee,i and the second half
of the schedule will have to be run off
after the second semester opens. Start
ing in next Wednesday with games be
tween Sigma Nu and A. T. O. and Sigma
Chi and the Dorm, every afternoon will
be taken until the series is finished.
In the first division the race lies lie
tween the Phi Delta and the Sigma Chis.
The former already have won from the
Betas, Dorm and Oregon Club while the
Sigs have two victories chalked up to
their credit. Both teams have men on
the varsity squad for nearly every posi
tion so they ought to stage a “big-league”
contest when they meet. Farley and Cate
have run away from their guards and lead
in total number of baskets, but Waldron
and Phipps will furnish them a little
stiffen opposition. This game is slated
for next Friday.
The Dorm has played but one gaunq
that with the Phi Delts which they lost by
a good-sized score. Nelson was the
bright and shining light with four baskets
—the only points for his side. A couple
of players were on the sick list, which put
the Dorm under a handicap.
The Betas, Sigma Nus and Oregon Club
are joint owners of the cellar, neither
having been able to break into the win
column in two starts. The Betas gave
the Phi Delts a close rub in their first
game, but despite the heroic efforts of
Carl Nelson and Ken^Bartlett, they were
forced to take the short end of the score.
The absence of “Spike" Leslie from the
ranks spelled defeat for the Oregon Club
against the two leaders.
The Fijis are leading at present in sec
tion two, for the right to meet the win
ners in the other division, with wins from
the Sigma Nus and A. T. O. They have
games with the Kappa Sigs and the Delta
Taus which will decide the championship
of this section.
Three teams are tied for second place,
A. T. O.. Kappa Sigma and Delta Tail.
The A. T. O’s with Dick Nelson bent the
Delta and without him lost to the Fijis.
If Dick is able to play, they should win
‘.heir other games.
The Kappa Sigs were minus Jay Fox
when they played the Delta Taus which
helped them to defeat. The Delts have
played an in-and-out game. The first half
they led the A. T. O’s and then lost out
in the final. Against the Kappa Sigs
they were behind at the start and then
piled up a big count in the last period.
Holding down last place come the Sig
na Nus, Johnny Parsons has been play
ing good ball but his teammates haven’t
given him the necessary support.
The remainder of the schedule is as
Wednesday, Feb. 7.—Sigma Nu vs.
A. T. O. Sima Chi vs. Dorm.
Thursday, Feb. 8.—Kappa Sig vs. Fiji.

CENTERED Oil SILENI
Proceeding of Legislature Con
cerning University Care
“Favorable Impression Was
Made’’ Is the General
Tlie proceedings of the Oregon legisla
ture concerning the University and its
work are being closely watched by stu
dents and faculty who received the dele
gation on the campus last Saturday and
showed the legislators about the campus.
That the reception was all that could
be desired would seem to be indicated by
several stories appearing in state papers
from Salem correspondents.
"It would seem that the legislators left
with a very favorable impression,” said
Karl Onthank, secretary to President
Campbell. E. W. Allen, dean of the
schol of journalism, expressed the same
opinion and added that many members of
the delegation made the remark that they
were in a much bettef position to judge
as to the efficiency of the school now
than they had been before.
There was another side to the visit
the value of which was not realized until
after the guests had arrived. That was
the establishing of personal friendships
between members of the state law-ma
king body and the students of the Uni
versity. Many of the students had per
sonal friends in the delegation and many
new friendships were formed. It was
not an uncommon sight last Saturday to
see one legislator surrounded by two or
three of the young people from his dis
trict, making the rounds of the campus.
The fact that from the time the visit
ors left the train in front of Villard hall
shortly after 11 o’clock until they were
whisked away by the automobiles of the
Commercial club at 3:45 o’clock, the leg
islators did not have time to breathe
deeply made careful investigation of the
grounds and the buildings practically im
In the hurried trip which had been
planned to include those points which
were of greatest'interest and were the
most characteristic of the school, it is
thought that a general impression was
gained without any wasted time. The
rain interfered in a measure with the
plans of the entertainment but so busy
was everyone that no time was left for

INSTALLS LIGHT SYSTEM
New Method of Illuminating Library Be
The semi-indirect lighting system I
which was installed in the library at the
beginning of the semester is proving
quite successful according to M.II.Doug
Mr. Douglass says this direct system
gives much less trouble than the old meth
od of lighting and a softer, better light
is obtained. This method is being used
in modern buildings and is considered
the best of three systems, direct, semi- <
indirect, and indirect.
REGISTER LATE—PAY $2

MUST ENROLL MONDAY
# # # #
150 NEWCOMERS EXPECTED
All registration of students who at
tended the University Inst semester must
be done on Monday, is the edict issued
by the registrar’s office. After this date,
a fine of !?2 will be imposed on those
registering. Registration cards must be
returned within three days, or students
will be subject to the same fine.
According to a recent estimate made
by A. R. Tifany, registrar, 150 students
who were not in college here last semes
ter will register on Monday. Out of this
number, says Mr. Tiffany, possibly one
half are students who attended the Uni
versity in the past.
“Judging from previous enrollments, 1
predict that many of the men will major
in commerce and many of the women in
English literature,” he says. “Both these
courses are always very popular.”
DR. AYER GOES TO IOWA
Will Have Charge of 25 Men in Research
Work In Education.
Fred C. Ayer, professor in the school
of education, left here Monday, for Iowa,
where he will conduct a class in the
State University in research work in
education. Professor Ayer left here
shortly after exchanging telegrams with
Walter A. Jessup, president of the Uni
versity of Iowa, and formerly dean of the
education department of the same school.
The class to be under his supervision
is composed of 25 men who are taking
graduate work in the University who
have already had experience as teachers
or supervisors. Professor Ayer will re
turn to the University of Oregon in the
fall semester but in the meantime he ex
pects to do some personal research work
along the line of efficiency' in teaching.

Bezdek’s much maligned varsity was
easily humbled by the University of
Washington quintet in the men’s gymna
sium last night in the first of atwo
game series to decide the conference cel
lar championship. The score was 33 to
Outside of the first five minutes of
play little real basketball was displayed.
Both teams were constant offenders with
personal fouls and rouhging was the rule
of the evening. Referee Botsford, of
Reed College, called a total of 21 fouls,
12 on Oregon and 9 on Washington. His
officiating was the best Seen on the local
floor this year.
The play was fast nt the outset.
Washington used a short pass, side-to
siile lateral attack, that failed to pene
trate the varsity defense. Coach David
son called a conference of his charges in
the center of the floor and altered hia
style of attack. A long pass coupled
with considerable busting tactics soon
wore Bezdek’s charges down and from
then on it was easy for the Seattleites.
Lynn McCready at center found the
bucket for the opening basket with 0|
long shot from mid-floor. McCready
then converted the first of Riddle's five
personal fouls that ended in his banish
ment at the middle of the first period.
Captain and coach Davidson of the
visitors showed some of the beet bas
ketball that varsity fans huve ever had
the privilege to witness. .lay Fox guard
hiin closely during the first half, yet he
managed to throw two field baskets out
of as many tries at the hoop. He threw
7 out of 9 free throws. He was here,
there, and everywhere, always cool under
fire, and a dead shot at the basket. His
squirming, ducking tactics were respon
sible for over half of the fouls ce/ed
on the lemtnon-yellow guards.
Ralph Smith at forward, C. Smith at
center, and Staatz at guard each found
the net with long shots during the first
half. Jay Fox brought the crowd to its
feet with a long ringer past the center
of the floor. Fox showed to advantage
throughout the evening. Washington
led 17 to 10 at half time.
Hopes that the varsity would come
buck in the final period weTe soon blast
ed. They seemed lost when it came to
finding their men to advance the ball.
Their old fault of laying back when the
opportunity came to pass down the floor
caused their downfall. Loose guarding,
coupled with an utter lack of the get
together spirit, made it easy for Wash
ington to roll up thro scoTe.
Sims replaced Cate and Dick Nelson
took Fox's place. Still the scoring con
tinued. Davidson scored four field bas
kets although closely guarded all the
while. Staatz and R. Smith each broke
j loose on two occasions and dropped the
ball in the net. The former featured with
close guarding and accurate passing. Mc

varsity got during the half on a long
