The representatives of the men’s or
Hnizatlons on the campus took another
decided step forward In renewing ofc
pon’a interest in debate when they pick
ed their topic for the first series at a
meeting with Professor Prescott, Thurs
The topic is of live timely Interest,
ll denis with the problem of whether
Germany should he permitted to partici
pate in the proposed league of nations
before she has paid debts incurred dur
ing thp war.
With the wide-spread interest, in de
bate already aroused on the campus for
this .venr, the selection of live topics was
tlie last problem to be fared to assure
the return this year of Oregon's pre
war strength lu the greatest of intel
lectual college activity. If the women
of the University choose ns good a
topic for their debates which nro to be
be preliminary to the final Alan vs.
Woman debate, there can be no doubt
but that the old enthusiasm for debate
will returned despite the fact that Ore
gon Is slightly handicapped this year in
bringing back the interest because of
the necessity for economy with the
Student body funds with the result that
no inter-state debates will he possible
It Is becoming Increasingly evident,
however, that Oregon will have good
material for Inter-state tennis when the
University is aide to again meet the
large colleges of the west. The "dough
nut series" will regenerate the Interest
and develop the material which will be
needed nest year.
It is doubtful that the debate before
the student hotly between the men and
women champions will be of more value
than its spectacular interest due to the
belief that men cannot debate women
teams because of the inherent chivalry
of the men. Hut men are said to be
loosing tills chivalry since the days of
King Arthur, the Round Tabic and the
Knights who fought death battles for
fomen they did not know very well. For
the women it is said that they have de
veloped a primary Interest in tills final
debto and are already considering the
glory to come.

Phi Deltas Beat Betas;
Fijis Defeat Friendly
Thu l’hi Delta completed the elimina
tion of the Betas from the running for
the championship of the Doughnut lea
gue, when they defeated them by the
score of <i to 2. This is the second defeat
of the Betas, the Kappa Sigs, winning
the initial game by one point. In the
other game yesterday afternoon, the Fi
jis subjected the Friendly Hall quintet
to a 10 to 1 drubbing.
By defeating the Betas so decisively,
the Phi Delta gave themselves a big
boost towards the top of the pile. Ac
cording to the dope, the race in League
1! appears to be between the Phi Dolts
and the Oregon Club quintet, who nosed
out ahead of the A. T. O.’s recently.
By the same tokens, the Fijis and the
Delts are both running strongest in
League A, the Fijis having two victories,
ifnd the Dells one.
Star Players Discovered.
The games Thursday brought out sev
eral star players that so far have not
shown themselves. Johnny Gamble for
th(> Phi Delts was a whirlwind, and Ihoks
like a million for that team. "Scotty”
Straclmn was a moose when it came to
keeping the Beta forwards from shooting.
For the Betas, Callison at center, and
Howard at forward did good work when
they got a chance.
The Fijic dearly won their game with
out letting the dormitory men get a
score. A foul in the latter part of the
game gave the Friendly hall men their
chance to escape a shutout, and they
, slipped one in. l.arry Gray, Johnny IIous
I ton, and Art Ritter’s names go in the
| column for honorable mention, as they
put m> an excellent brand of basketball,
and are helping a lot to keep Phi Gam
ma Delta in the 1000 per cent class.
No score was made in the Phi Pelt
Beta game during the first half, hut in
I the last half, the Betas loosened up, and
! allowed the Phi Delts to slip some
through the hoop.
The attendance has been falling off at
(lie last two or three games.

Finishes Series of Lectures to
Soldiers on History of
“I wouldn’t have missed the experi
ence for anything,” said Professor I’. C.
Crockatt, upon his return Friday from
Camp Lewis, where lie has been lectur
ing on economics, to the soldiers for the
past two weeks. *
Professor Crockatt lectured to the sol
diers for the two-fold purpose of ac
quainting the soldiers with the problem
of life after their discharge from the
service, and to prevent Bolshevism from
"Four lectures a day were given, three
in tho morning and one in the afternoon,”
said Professor Crockatt. “The lectures
were compulsory and at first the soldiers
took little interest in them. After we
had finished our lecture we would ask
them if there were any questions they
wished to ask. The most common ques
tion was, ‘When are Vf* going to get dis
charged V’ Hmvover, as soon as they per
ceived the real purpose of the lectures,
many of them took advantage by con
sulting tiie employment liureinj.”
The professor met several University
of Oregon men at Camp Lewis, among
them being Rex Stratton, and “Punch”
Dunlap, “Punch” had just come from
overseas and had spent some time in
(Jlasgow, Scotland, which he said, he lik
ed be*! of all, for it reminded iftm so

fers You No More Than The NEW EDISON.
““SINCE Thomas A. Edison perfected this instrument, Grand
Opera itself has been able to offer you no more than the New
Edison. If the two million people who have attended Edi
son tone tests have been utterly unable to distinguish the
artists living voice from the instrument’s RE-CREATION,
it is clear that no difference exists, isn’t it? And if there is
no difference between the artist’s rendition and the instru
ment’s, then obviously the artist can give you no more than
“The Phonograph With a Soul”
Why, then, do people attend Grand Opera? Merely for
the pleasure given the eye—that is the answer. So far as
the music is concerned, you can have just as much in your
own living room as the opera can offer. You may be a thou
sand miles from Broadway, but you are missing nothing.
There is but one instrument which actually RE-CREATES
the singer’s voice, with complete fidelity—the others merely
imitate. And that instrument is the New Edison.
Call at our store and learn the difference for yourself.
Don’t forget this—the Edison also plays all talking ma
