I Oregon VOL. 20. EUGENE, OREGON, THURSDAY EVENING, Emerald JAN. SO, 1919. * JtfO. 40, Score at End of Game Tied: Visitors Won by Foul Penalty. DURNO AND LIND HIGH POINT MEN FOR VARSITY Mclvor and Hollman loss 12 Points Each for Aggies. 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 end. The line-up: W. S. C. (36) Oregon (33) Mclvor (12)... F.Durno (19) Rockev (S)..'.F. Jacobberger (2) Hollman (12).C. Lind (S) 4£otula (2).u.-G. ... Chapman (4) (Btergess.G. ... Brandon (2) (Washington State College awarded one point e:xh on fourth personal foul on Durno and Brandon.) Referee: George A. Anderson of Port land. DEBATE DATA SEGREGATED Revolving Stand in Library Contains All Material On Subject.

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 ence. 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 winner. 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. ESSENCE OF GREAT Students of University Hear 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 tel owner,” gave the students of the Uni versity a most unique entertainment at Wednesday’s assembly in Villnrd hall.

The collection of slides used was very exceptional and one of rare beauty and value. Must See Mount Hood. Mr. Riley believes that one isn't a good American until he has seen Mt. Ilood; until he has ceased resisting the impulse to go west. “The thought of the first white man and white woman west ward, old unrest made mnn cross the ocean, ever going toward the scnrlet em pire of the west, until he drove the 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 your pedigTee?’ The family trees still flourish although they do need spraying. The people of Chicago say. ‘How much have you got?’ We of the west ask. ‘What can you do?’” How to Fill Empire. The question to be answered now, ac cording to Mr. Riley is, “What can be (Continued on page two) OREGANA NEEDS ARTISTS Those Having Cartooning Ability Asked to Hand in Samples.

Mysterious posters have appeared on the campus overnight. What they are has puzzled the whole college. A large ques tion mark, with the date February 14 beneath, are the only marks on the posters. February 1-1 is St. Valentine’s Day and is two weeks from this Friday. Evidently according to the posters, something big is to come off on that Friday, but what is it? Is it a new war loan, or a drive for subscriptions to the new women's build ing. or a drive for the extermination of cats or the upbuilding of the R. O. T. C? 'lire posters give no hint. It may not be a drive at all. Can it be a dance? That is unlikely, for the Freshman Glee comes the following night. Then what is it? It could hardly ho the underclass mix, because this is held ou Saturdays invar iably. It must he something that takes place at night. But what is there, that can take place on the night of February 14? The college is waiting expectantly for further developments. VARSITY OUIISTET OFF FOR SEATTLE TODAY 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. Y. W. C. A.
