The Kappa Sign and the Oregon Club
basketball teams staged an encounter
Thursday evening on the floor of the
men’s gymnasium that made a battle
look like a gathering o€ Quakers. Every
thing was in order, from gang figlrts
to ice hockey, and it was the best re
view of athletics that has been staged
in the Doughnut league this year. The
final score stood 10 to 9 in favor of
the Kappa Sign, but the game was as
evenly played as any Varsity game ever
thought of being, and the Oregon Club
inen, while they did not win, sent their
dpponefcits off the floor consideiabty

CLASSES TO COMPETE
AFTER LEAGUE GAMES
Owing tn Military Cenroes, D no ghaut
Schedule Must Be Finished
Interclass basketball will start as goon
as the Doughnut league schedule is fin
ished, announced Dean Walker yester
day. It was originally intended to have
the interclass basketball at the same
time that the Doughnut league was play
ing its schedule, but the large amount
of time taken by the military drill and
scienee made this impossible.
The Doughnut league will Finish about
the first week in February, and the
interclass games will follow immediately.
There will be in all probability three
games, one between teams represent
ing the freshmen and sophomores, one
between the juniors and seniors, and the
third will be between the winners of
the first two games.
According to Dean Walker’s program,
as soon as interclass basketball is over,
handball will come into favor. It has
not been decided as yet whether the
handball games will be made interfra
ternity or interclass affairs. If enough
interest is taken, both may be held. The
handball tournament will start abont the
middle of February, and will probably
continue until some time in March.

WRESTLING TEAM! TO
BE MAOEUP FEB. 8
Bouts to Determine Men Who
Will Meet Washington
Pour Who Faced 0. A. C. Last
Year Back; Match With
Aggies to Be March 8.
February S was set yesterday by can
didates for the team ns the date for
the tryouts for the wrestling team which
will journey to Seattle to meet the Uni
versity of Washington. The bouts will
be on the same' order as last year, with
the man gaining two decisions out of
'three getting a place on the team. Dean
WWker will referee.
In all probability six men will be
taken along at the following weights:
108, 117. 127, 137, 148 and 105 pounds.
The team will leave Eugene, February
15, and the meet will take place the
Four Old Mon Back.
Coach Harold Grey is very well
pleased with the outlook, with four men
back who wrestled the O. A. C. matmen
last year. Norman (“Shorty”) Phillips
is the only man in the paperweight class,
brrt he has bad two yours of practice,
and is showing up better right along.
Bruce Fie gal, a veteran from last year,
is the local man at 117 pounds. Ho
has been working consistently and is in
good trim. In an exhibition bout at
the Y. M. C. A. stag nrix a week or
so ago, Flegul showed his class by
(downing J. B. McKinney, who omt
weighed him by 10 pounds.
McKhinej and “Si” Simola are the
leading contestants for the 127-pound
berth on the team. McKinney is new
at the game, but learning fast, while
Simola has had one year on the s,]uad.
The two men are very evenly matched
and the winner will be hard to choose.
No iess than four men are out at
the 137 mark. “Chief” Wilson, another
one of last year’s team, and “Ohuck”
Dundore, are both counted on to make
a strong bid for the place, with Ed
Padden and Elmer Howard the “dark
horses,” who may upset the dope. How
i nrd is a little over-weight, and will have
to train down.
Regular Training Begins.
Captain Harold Grey and Thurston
Faraway will furnish the competition
at 148 pounds. Grey has not been in
very good shape all year, but is in hopes
that he will be in trim by February 8.
He was kept off the team last year be
cause he had to buck against “Rudy”
Rutherford, northwest champion at his
weight. Faraway has been displaying
considerable cleverness in practice, and
mny spring a surprise.

team which faced O. A. C., is the single

This is the appeal sent from the front
by Miss Elizabeth Stewart, a librarian
in Paris, at the Y. M. C. A. headquar

force. A letter containing her request
.has just been received on the campus.
Miss Stewart wrote:
“If anyone wants to send anything to
the soldiers, I think music would be as
much appreciated as anything. This
morning there was a secretary in from
the field who said that for about 1500
men they had only one old volume of
hymns, which they had swiped from
another hut; that one soldier had
bronght abont eight songs over with
him, and this was all they had had for
months. They had played and bud* them
until they were aJI worn out, besides
everyone being tired of them.
