Score at End of Game Tied:
Visitors Won by Foul
Mclvor and Hollman loss 12
Points Each for
The Washington State College bas
ketball team won the second game of the
series from the Oregon five on the local
floor last night by the close score of
36 to 33, after a five minute overtime
period had been played. The game itself
ended with the count 34 to 34 and in
the overtime, which was allowed, Ore
gon scored only one point during the ex.
tra session while Washington State
gathered two.
The game was a fight from begin
ning to end, and Eddie Durno was again
the high point man of the day, get
ting 19 points to his credit, 12 on field
baskets and 7 on converted fouls. For
the visitors Mclvor and Hollman both
turned in 12 on their card. Herm Find,
at center for Oregon, played an excep
tionally clever game and scored S points
during the encounter.
Many Fouls Called on Oregon
Referee George A. Anderson, of (Port
land, called fourteen personal fouls
against members of the Oregon team
and five on Washington State.
Durno was unable to trail his man
down the floor, even when he was drib
bling the ball, without having the ref
eree calling him for tripping- Durno is
so small that he has- to guard his man
closely in order to do any good.
The audience, perhaps, the largest bas
ket-ball crowd at Oregon in years, was
loud in its disapproval of refere^George
A. Anderson’s work, which was consid
ered unfair in regard to the calling of
several personal fouls which lost the
game for Oregon iu the added period.
In the last minute of play, in the reg
ular game, Oregon was leading 34 to
32 when Anderson called the fourth per
sonal fowl on Durno. This automatically
gave W. S. C. one point and a free shot,
which they failed to make. In the last
minute of the overtime period Oregon
was again in the lead 35 to 34 when the
fourth personal foul was called on Bran
Son. W -S. C. this time converted their
free shott, which with one point awarded
on the fourth personal fonl. gave them
the game by the score of 36 to 33.
Teams Seesaw Throughout
The count during the game seesawed
(jack and forth with first one team go
ing into the lead and then the other. In
the last half the play was especially
fast and it was during this period that
the Oregon team suffered personal fouls,
which the referee could not see. Every
move that was at all questionable on the
part of Oregon men was called.
The IV. S. C. team left after the game
for O. A- C., where they will clash with
the Orange and Black quintet this week

Barbers’ Inharmony
Over S-Cent Shave
Basis of Court Case
I he fate of 10-cent haircuts and 5
c^nt shaves will be decided tonight in the
case of Barber Smith vs. Biltmore Hotel
company, the trial of which will be heard
in court at 7:30.
The status of the case is as follows:
The Biltmore Hotel company bought the
entire block of land and buildings, on the
east side of Willamette street between
Ninth and Tenth for its hotel. Smith
is the lessee of a barber shop in one of
the buildings that the hotel company has
bought. His lease has still five years to
run. The hotel company offered Smith
a better shop in a building across the
street free from rent if he would move.
Smith has been in his present location
for twenty years and for sentimental
reasons declines to move. To force him
to do so, so the company can put up its
new building, the hotel company em
ployed two expert barbers, whom it in
stalled in a shop on either side of
Smith’s. These barbers charge ten cents
for a haircut and five cents for a shave.
They got all Smith’s patrons away from
him. Unable to pay his rent, he was
ejected. The hotel company then closed
the two barbershops and tore down the
building. Smith is now suing the hotel
company for ruining his business.
To those who object that there lias
never been a place in Eugene where you
could get a tcn-ccnt haircut and a five
ccnt shave, and that no hotel owned by
the Biltmore Hotel company is located in
Eugene, it may be explained that the
case is to bo heard in the Moot Court
in the law library, where Marvin K.
Holland will appear for the plaintiff and
Gordon Wells for the defendant. S. B.
Warner, professor of law, wHl act as
Chief Justice, and Ben C. Ivey as clerk
of (lie court.
The length of the arguments will bo
j 20 minutes, 30 minutes and 10 minutes,
; with time out for questions not to exceed
15 minutes. All regular law students
must attend and others are cordially in
vited. The law students will vote on the
1 verdict.
To Represent Oregon; Norris
Jones and Ralph Holzman
Also Compete.
Ralph C. Hoeber, a sophomore from
Portland, won a unanimous, decision
over Norris R. Jones and Ralph Holz
man in the oratorical tryouts held Wed
nesday afternoon. Mr. Hoeber will rep
resent the University in the annual in
tercollegiate oratorical contest to be
held at the University Friday, March 14.
Mr. Iloeber’s subject was “Bolshev
ism,” which he treated in a masterful
way. showing the danger of its spread to
the. United States. Mr. Hoeber in his
oration appealed for immediate action on
the part of every American citizen to
stamp out this ‘‘snake in the grass. ’
Norris R. Jones, a Junior and the
second speaker, chose as his subject,
“The Conservation of our Greatest Na
tional Resources, the physical, mental
and moral character of Young America.
Mr. Jones treated his subject in a man
ner which pleased the judges both from
the standpoint of insight into his sub
ject matter and of delivery and pres
Ralph Holzman, a sophomore, was the
third speaker. He also chose the sub
ject of “Bolshevism,” making an appeal
for a “new industrial system” as the
preventive of the spread of Bolshevism
to ,his country. Mr. Holzman treated
his subject very well, in the opinion of
the judges, but lacked the finish of the
Mr Hoeber attended and graduated
from Lincoln High School of Portland
in 1010 and represented that school in
inter-scholastic debate in 1915 and 101C.
He also studied oratory at Re«d College,
Portland, in 1918. Mr. Hoeber is par
ticularly qualified for oratory not only
by his keen insight into affairs but be
cause of his excellent speaking voice,
presence and poise.
Professor Robert W. Prescott. Profes
sor Peter C. Crockatt and Walter Myers
acted as judges.

Frank Branch Riley
at Assembly.
Frank Branch Riley, Portland lawyer
and a Mazama, thanked Dean Straub for
his “extravagant kick-off which was even
better than we had agreed upon” termed
himself “hopelessly demented on Oregon
scenery” and asisted by Homer Rogers,
“mountaineer, wholesale grocer, and ho

Mr. Riley believes that one isn't a
good American until he has seen Mt.

impulse to go west. “The thought of the

ocean, ever going toward the scnrlet em

prairie schooner into the sunset.”
The way the pioneer climbed one moun
tain after another until he finally came
down into the little valley of the Wil
lamette was described by Mr. Riley.
“The people of the east need your
spirit, the first question heard in New
England,” said Mr. Riley, “is, ‘What do
you know?’ In the south it was* What is

flourish although they do need spraying.

Campus Is Speckled

What Is the Answer?
Mysterious posters have appeared on
the campus overnight. What they are has
puzzled the whole college. A large ques

for further developments.
Oregon Hoopers Appear to have
Slight Edge Over U. of
W. Team.
After having broken even with the
Washington State College quintet in the
series of two games here this week the
Fniversity of Oregon basket ball five will
leave lOugene tonight for Seattle to take
on the University of Washington team on
Tlnttay and Saturday evenings.
The Oregon team showed tiij advantage
in the first two conference games, and
their playing was, taken as a whole, very
good. In team work the Oregon five
showed better than did the visitors.
Dean Walker is getting fine results from
his form of advancing the hall, by short,
snappy pusses that use all of the men
on the floor. Its advantage over the long
sliot method was clearly shown in the
first of the two games with the Wash
ington Staters.
Lind’s Work Surprises.
Eddie Durno and Francis Jncohherger
proved to be a couple of good scorers
and rang up a nice total of points for
the Lemon Yellow. Ilerm land surpris
ed the natives by his work at center and
bids fair to be one of the sensations
of the league. Brandon and Chapman
hnndled themselves well at the guard
positions and also broke into tile scoring
columns. Brandon allowed himself to
get called on too ninny personal fouls.
After playing the two games in Se
attle this week-end the varsity will play
Washington five two return games on
the local floor next Friday and Saturday
evenings. The Washington State College
team left, this afternoon for Corvallis
where they will meet the O. A. C. quintet
this week-end.
Dope Looks Like Oregon.
Tile Washington State College team
defeated the University of Washington
five in two games before coming to Eu
gene and from comparative scores and
interviews the dope looks to lean toward
Oregon to beat the Seattle five. How
ever, the varsity will have a hard fight
tins week and if able to beat tile U. of
W. on their floor, should have it much
easier on the home court.

Physical Training Needed.
An increasing demand is being made
for teachers in physical training, accord
ing to Dr. Ii. D. Sheldon, dean of the
School of Education. This Is due to the
fact that so much attention is now be
ing paid to the establishment of physical
training in the high schools. As yet it
lias been impossible to obtain teachers
for the positions.
