NEWS WITH A SET VALUE.
Did you ever stop to consider that all of the news in a news
paper is not confined to that matter which is set in body type, led
off by a conventional headline and bordered by the customary
column rule? Did it ever occur to you that there was news, per
haps more pertinent to you and your immediate needs than that
bearing the label of editorial approval, in those spaces surround
ed by a black rule, or a fancy border—in the advertisements?
There are two sides to the life of every man and woman and
and two corresponding qualities constituting the make-up of
normal human beings—the cultural and the practical. Likewise
there are two sides to the newspaper, for its very life depends
upon its ability to function to people and their instincts. It can
not, of course, be said that the news columns of the paper cater
only to the cultural qualifies of its readers. The busy man reads
the news not only that he may be well informed as to the every
day occurances for the personal satisfaction it gives him, but he
digests the contents of the news columns with the idea of mak
ing practical use of the information thus gained. Thus it is with
the college student. He sk\ms the sum total of the news con
tained in his paper, but carefully assimilates the details of that
news story that has a bearing upon him and his immediate needs,
But the average newspaper reader, and the college student
is no exception, does not carry his plan of reading the news to its
logical conclusion. He cries for practical, timely news of which
he can make immediate and practical use. He studies the mar
ket reports, or, in the case of the college student, the opportuni
ties to make “spare change” during odd moments. And right
there before them is the most practical information they could
ask. News that will save them time, money and worry.
In one sense the well written advertisement is the truest
news story in the whole paper. It tells the “who, where, why,
when and how” in a simple straightforward manner that leaves
no doubt in your mind and on a single point. Perhaps you are
one of those who look upon the advertisements as an intrusion
upon the reader, necessary, but nevertheless an intrusion. If you
do feel that way, just run through each of the ads in this issue
of the Emerald carefully, take mental stock of the news they con
tain. The rest of the experiment will work itself out. It won’t
be many days before you have need for some article you have
seen advertised and the normal reaction will be to connect the
article, the name of the dealer and the price. The result is equal
ly obvious; you get a quality article at a fair price with a mini
mum amount of trouble; the dealer makes his sale and adds you
to his list of customers; the newspaper justifies itself as a sell
ing medium and thereby increases its power to be of service to
It has been said that it is a poor proposition that won’t work
both ways—well, here’s one that works three ways and with
benefit to all. Try it.

OVATION GIVEN SHOCKLEY
Annual Meet Saturday Ends
Season; Dwight Wilson Cap
tain for Next Year.
Oregon wrestlers scored a 3-2 victory
over O. A. C. in the annual matches held
Saturday night in the University gymna
sium. For Oregon, George Taylor won
over McLean at 165; Dwight Wilson de
feated Buttervitch at 135, and Bruce
Flegal won a decision over Palmer at
115. O. A. C. won in the match between
Howard, of Oregon, and Strome, of O.
A. C. in the 143-pound class and Hill,
of Oregon, lost to Cummins, of 0. A. C.,
The victory of the Oregon mat men
gives the three teams in the Northwest
conference an even break, O. A. C. hav
ing previously defeated Washington and
Washington having won over Oregon.
Taylor Wins Decision.
Chief interest centered around the
bard-fought match between Taylor and
McLean, heavyweights. The first round
went to Taylor, the second to McLean,
both awarded for downs. The third round
was' the final event on the program and
was to decide the meet as both teams at
that time had two bouts to their credit.
When the decision went to Taylor the
Oregon fans rushed in a mob to congrat
ulate him and he was carried from the
Conch Shockley, who gave up his au
tomobile business in Wasco and came
back to Oregon to work with the wrest
ling sound without charge, because of his
loyalty to the University and his faith
in the Oregon hoys on the mat, came in
for hundreds of expressions of appre
ciation and congratulations from the
fans at this time.
“Shockley Said It-”
Shockley had said that Oregon would
defeat O. A. C. despite the fact that O.
A. C. had defeated Washington, a team
that won over the Oregon boys. And the
students that crowded in triumph around
Shockley said: “Shockley said it-”
Shockley was instructor in gymnasium
work and swimming as well as coach of
wrestling for several seasons past, but
resigned last fall to go into business
at Wasco, Oregon. Now that the match
is won, he will return and resume his
work in eastern Oregon.
Wilson and Taylor hud previously won
their letters in the Washington meet, so
Flegal was the only new letter man cre
ated out of the Saturday night contests.
The first two rounds of his match were
draws. In the third, Flegal came out
strong, working so much skin off Pal
mer's back and skidding his face across
the mat with such enthusiasm that there
was no doubt about his right to a de
cision. Oregon supporters seemed to ap
preciate fully Flegal's work—O. A. 0.
had complained about some decisions
made by Beferee Burden, and Oregon
was up on ear and looking for blood.
Wilson Shows Hard Fight.
The Wilson-Buttervitch contest went
to the third rouud also and was perhaps
the hardest fought event on the card.
Wilson took the first round hut was
thrown from the mat against a board
seat out in the audience in the second
round, lie hit on his head and, although
he continued with much gameness, was
unable to come back for a sufficient
showing to wm the round and it went
to a draw. The third rouud also went to
a draw, Wilson winning the event on his
first round decision.
Howard, a now man on the Oregon
sound, lost to Captain Strome in two
straight rounds. Despite the fact that it
was his first intercollegiate contest How
ard showed lots of fight and ability, only
the experience of his opponent forcing
Howard to a position underneath.
Claude Hill lost in two fast, hard
rounds with Cummins, an older ami more
experienced wrestler. Hill sustained a
sprained shoulder in the second round
and hud to be carried off the mat. It
is thought possible that one of his ribs
was broken and au X-ray may be neces

Spring football practice at the Uni

such ttaiuing would be doubtful and the
results would not compensate for the

played between th Varsity and fresh
man teams each afternoon.
Chances brightened greatly yesterday
afternoon when “Pod” Maison, Varsity
third baseman for the past two years,
turned out in uniform for the first time
this season. Maison is enlisted in the
aviation corps, and may be called at any
time, but until he is called, will hold
down his position at third. Bill .Steers
and Dwight Wilson also answered the
call yesterday for the first time this
year. The former is trying for an out- ■
field berth, and the latter for the pitch
Dunton's Case Not Serious.
"Ted" Dunton, who has been doing
the majority of the receiving thus far
this year, is laid up with neuralgia, and !
may be confined to his bed for a few j
days. However, the case is not serious. , _
and hope is held out by Captain Sheehy
that he will be back at his post before
the end of the week.
The practice yesterday consisted of
bunting practice and infield workouts for
the Varsity and freshman infielders. The
two teams worked out in the drill shed
beside the gymnasium. At least two
men are out for each infield position ex
cept shortstop, so a groat deal of com
petition is being shown by the candi
Walker Is Coach.
The game March 30 will be played
on the Vaughn street grounds. This
will be the first «wuio to be played by
the shipyard aggregation, so the Varsity
will have the advantage in that par
ticular. However, the city league of
Portland has an exceptional amount of
material lined up this season, and will
undoubtedly have some very fast teams,
so a hard battle is expected.
Coach Dean Walker is supervising the ;
, work of both the Varsity and freshman
* teams, and is being aided by the letter
men in the different positions.
