color notes, as they are made up in tur

part of Viola. Emma Wootton was first
cast for this part, but her absence from

Lamar Tooze now Instructor
in Sniping at Camp Lewis
Lamar Tooze, Lieutenant in Company
L, 364th Infantry, now stationed at
Camp Lewis, and former University of
Oregon student, in a letter to Dean Eric
Allen says that he has been detailed as
Battalion Sniping Officer in charge of a
selected group of 20 men who are being
trained in sharp-shooting, scouting, pa
trolling and observation.
“These men will become so expert with
the rifle that they will be able to hit the
Hun every time he sticks his ear above
the parapet,” writes Lamar.
“The army life is essentially a man’s
game, and the discipline, the physical
vigor, and the mental acuteness which
modern training for war promotes, more
than compensates for the setback which
my law study has suffered,” he says.
He speaks of the eagerness on the
part of the soldiers to get “over there,"
he says, “the cause we are all fighting
for—within the army and without—has
taken on an almost sacred character.
The noble way the men and women have
responded repudiates emphatically the
ante-bellum declaration that “America
has sold her soul.”
Mr. Tooze ia of the opinion that the
young men of this country huv been sad
ly in need of disipline and that one of
the greatest rewards the United States
will gain from entering into this war will
be the benefit derived from the extensive
military training, and that the lesson of
war time living will continue in times of

thing in its history,” said Lieutenant
Tooze, “by introducing military training
It takes a trained rnind to grasp the com
plex details of modern warfare, its a sci

In his opinion it is a regrettable thing
that so many of the men below the age
of twenty-one are leaving school to enter
the service, and he says that as long as
America has plenty of men of draft age
to fill up the ranks of the army they
should wait. He writes “they'll get an
opportunity later—it is m.v firm convic
tion that this war will last two or three
HANDBALL MAY BE NEXT
FOR DOUGHNUT CIRCUIT
Games to Start Soon If Men Can Find
Time for Series, Dean Walker
Now that the Doughnut league basket
hall games are over, the next thing on
Dean Walker’s athletic program is a
doughnut handball league. There is
some possibility that, owing to the
heavy demand on the students’ time by
the military department, it will not bo
found possible to hold the handball
games, but Walker hopes to be able to
find time for them somewhere.
It was originally planned to hold
doughnut games throughout the year,
following basketball with handball, and
later with baseball. The present mili
tary program has upset these plans to
a certain extent, but if the men think
they can find time for a handball league,
one will be started and a schedule will
be drawn up.
“It is up to the fellows themselves
if they want handball,” said Walker
yesterday. “I will arrange a schedule
if there are enough who want to play.”

OREGON FIVE BREAKS
TWO f§S' HOODOO
Washington Basket Tossers
Beaten Through Stellar
Work of Medley,
TEAMS WILL PLAY TONIGHT
27 to 20 Score Pulls ‘‘XT' Team
Out of Cellar Position
Oregon defeated the University of
Washington basketball team in the Uni
versity gymnasium here last night by
the score of 27-20. It was the first
game won by an Oregon Varsity J
for two years, the first
day of Tommy Boylen,
Lyle Bigbee, Morton, and
The game pulls Oregon out of the
eeller in the west side division of the
northwest conference, and upsets the
“dope” of comparative seores, which
were slightly in favor of Washington
because of their greater scores in the
O. A. C. games.
Both Teams Green.
Oregon’s green team, not one of whom
had ever played in the Varsity before this
season, showed a remarkable improve
ment over the games at the opening of
the season. Fowler converted nine out
of ten chances from the foul line, shot
four baskets, and was a big factor in
tlie Oregon victory. Conch Hayward,
however, attributes the great showing
made by Oregon over their work of the
first few weeks, to “Dot” Medley, for
ward, who was out of the game early in
the year because of an injured foot, nnd
has been going good only during the
last few days.
“Oregon plays good hall in spots, bat
the men get ragged too often,” said
Coach Hayward after the game. “There
is lots of room for improvement. The
victory last night was the result of two
green teams meeting."
Both teams entered last night’s game
without a single man of their last year’s
teams on the floor. The game was slow
and rough, with the fight only saving
the exhibition from being poor. Oregon
led during the entire game after the
Varsity pulled away from a 3-3 tie,
which was ran up during the first few
minutes of play. The first half ended,
1 3to 8, for Oregon.
Cook Strengthens Losers’ Line
The Washington lineup was practical
ly the same ns that which meet O. A. C
for a double defeat Friday and Satur
day, except that the team was strength
ened by the return of Cook, stnr guard,
who made 16 out of 28 points in the
