The University extension classes of
the .School of Commerce in Portland have
forsaken theiir limited quarters in the

Tale of Two Dances
Involves Oregon Nan
And Dean of Women
Near the close of the college year m
1017, Roy Farley, ex-’19, attended a
dance given by To-Ko-Lo at the country
club- It was just before many Univer
sity men were to leave for service, and
the dance was running just a little
over time.
Doan Elizabeth Fox came, and Far
ley, among others, was seen at the law
breaking dance—and went home.
The following day—(he had planned
it before)—Farley left for Dallas to pre
pare to leave with a company of the old
Third Oregon infantry. Later in the
summer he crossed to France.
The next time Farley met Miss Fox
was at a dance at Tours, given by the
Y. M. C. A. Dean Fox, who had ob
tained leave of absence from her duties
at the University, was also there—and
came over and recognized Farley.
But she has done the same thing to
many other Oregon men, Farley says.
Farley left the University in the
spring of 1017, crossed to France, and
transferred to the aviation corps. He
was placed with the French army on the
front later and flew there until last
summer, when he was transferred bRC'k
to the American army, commissioned a
second lieutenant, and placed in charge
of a. machine from October until the
time of the signing of the armistice
For his service with the French, Far
ley was presented with the insignia of
the French aviation coups. He will not
return to the University until next fall,
accordingto his present plans.
Farley spent the week-end visiting
at the Sigma Chi house, leaving for his
home in Dallas yesterday afternoon.

Idaho Tries to Figure Itself
Above Oregon Five in
The University of Oregon basketball
team is the undisputed champion of the
Pacific coast as a result of the two wins
scored over the University of California
last week at Berkeley. The team return
ed from south land Monday morning and
a dance was given in their honor yester
day afternoon. The Oregon team won the
championship of the Northern Division
of the Pacific coast conference before
going to California to play the state Uni
versity there.
Oregon was not a member of the
Northwest conference this year and the
contention that the University of Idaho
has advanced that they are champions
of a mythical conference in the northwest
is unfounded. Oregon. O. A. C., Washing
ton State College and the University of
Washington made up the northern divis
ion of the Pacific Coast conference and
the University of Idaho was not included.
In supporting their claim for the north
fest. title. Idaho has included Whitman
college which has not been played by the
local team this year.
Oregon's Superiority Shown.
Oregon showed that she was superior
to the Idaho team in the game played at
Moscow, which the varsity won LIT to 2(1.
The lemon yellow aggregation of basket
tossers were the best in the northwest,
and also the coast, and any attempt on
the part of any of the other colleges
of the northwest to claim the title
is unfounded. In order to lay claim
to the title Idaho would have
to play Oregon a regular series of four
conference games, which was not done.
An.v attempt, to figure this out by per
cenatge is impossible as Oregon did not
enter the conference.
The Oregon quintet had quite a time
■while in California. The basketball court
at Berkeley is laid crossways in the gym
there and in length it is only six foot
longer than the Oregon gymnasium Is
wide. In such a box car affair the var
sity had trouble getting going hut were
able to grab the first, two games by a
close maTgin. The California team, ac
cording to the Oregon players, were a
husky hunch and they numbered several
good basketball players among their ag
gregation. .T. Byrnes was the best bet of
the California team and gathered 21 of
the Cm points scored by the southern

Eddie Durno again led the Oregon
team in number of points with 22 out of

Miss Ehrmann's Affairs in Hands of
Dr. Straub and President's Office.
Dean Louise Ehrmann announced to
day that all matters arising during her
absence which may need adjustment will
be referred to the President’s office or
to Dean Straub.
Miss Ehrmann is leaving the campus
Tuesday for a short tour in the south
ern part of the state where she expects
to lecture before University alumni meet
ings in behoLf of the interests of the
women's building fund. She will talk
to the high school students fh Ashland.
Medford and Grants Pass, to strength
.ea, their interests in the University.
Plans Nearly Finished; Better
Support Urged; Tickets
Selling Slowly.
With Penn Walker's return from the
south, plans for the intersvholnstie bas
ketball tournament to be held there this
week-end have practically been complet
ed. Downtown merchants are whole
heartedly backing the meet, and students
of the Eugene high school are taking up
the plani with enthusiasm.
The teams which will represent the
various sections in the tournament have
been fairly well determined in most sec
tions. Ashland has won the right to
represent Southern Oregon in the tour
nament. and has wired Dean Walker
that her team will be here for the meet.
Jdneoln high school will represent
Portland in the tournament, as she leads
the Portland interscholastic league by
a safe margin. Prom the Coos Ray dis
trict, Marshfield seetns the likely rep
resentative, while Astoria is the team
which will represent the lower Colum
bia high schools.
Hood River to bo Candidate
In Pastern Oregon Hood River seems
the most likely candidate, but she is
{'playing a game tonight that, will decide
[ whether or not her team will represent
that section.
In the Willamette valley, three teams
will he allowed to enter the tournament.
Silvcrton, Salem and Pugcne have played
such close games that a decisive win
ner from the three oomld «ot. be deter
mined. All three teams are good, thinks
Dean Walker, and have earned the right
to compete in the tournament.
The committee on trophies lias decid
ed on the awards which will be made
to the winming teams and the all-star
team which will lie picked. The tro
phies will be small gold basketballs, one
to be awarded each man given a place
on the all-star team. 'Che winning team
will also be presented with a cup.
Merchants Bar,king Meet
The money for these has bbeen solic
ited from the Rugene merchants, who
are hacking the meet with true spirit.

The Eugene high school is holding a spe
cial assembly tomorrow to arouse en
thusiasm for the meet, and tickets will

The committee on entertainment of
the guests has completed its plans. The
teams will all be met at the station, and
taken to the house where they will stay
during (heir visit. They will them he
assigned lockers in the gymnasium, after
which they will lie shown around (he
campus and entertained by the houses.
Rex Thoator to ho Host
Saturday afternoon they will bo given
an automobile ride through the eit.v and
the country near Eugene. At 2 o’clock
the Hey theater will be host to the play
ers, and Saturday evening, after the
game, they will be taken the Oirls’
Olee Club concert.
“In order to put this thing over,”
said Walker, “it is necessary to make
it a financial success. If the tourna
ment. is a success this year, it is likely
that it will be held every year, and if
the students want that, it is up to them
to back this meet.”
Tickets for students are selling at 50
cents, while fit least $2 worth of games
may -be seen. Seven games are sched
uled, each of them promising to he real
thrillers. Although students have paid
for several things, it is very likely that
everyone ran squeeze the necessary 50
cents from somewhere in order to show
the visitors well-filled seats.
Students Not Buying Tickets
The general chairman on tho sale of
tickets on the campus, Marian Coffey,
reports that the students do not seem
to be hacking the meet as they should.
AN'iih the meet only a few days away,
tickets are still selling very slowly. This
is regrettable, for if the T'nivarsity
wants this tournament to be an annual
event, it must show whole hearted sup
port this time, or, according to Dean
Walker, tin* tournament cannot be held

Victorious Quintet
Near Starvation on
Return from South
The Basketball Team arrived in Eu
vene late Sunday night, or rather, early
Monday morning, famished and in a pre
carious financial condition. Why? Be
cause they spent three whole nights and
all their money in San Francisco.
Vfter tramping on the California Bear
twice in succession, the team decided to
celebrate. There was a diversiey of '
opinion as to the proper way to do it.
Every metnper of the team is a strong
teetotaler, and most of them are upright
pillars in the Prohibition dub. The
Torehers on the team were strong advo
cates of an exciting game of tiddled
winks, while the Tokos as strongly up
held checkers. After a lengthty argu
ment, a startling proposal was made.
It was no other than to visit the famous
resorts of San Francisco so that, they
could warn the othre students against
them, and could have first hand material
to argue for prohibition.
No sooner said than done. Ooffe
Dan’s, the Bucket of Blood, Spider Kel
ley’s, and othre places that helped to
make San Francisco famous, were ull
investigated in turn by the horrified
Oregonians. They pooled their available
funds, and made them stretch as far as
Finally Saturday night, tired, but hap
py in their research work, they hoarded
the train for Eugene. All day Sunday
they looked out of the car windows at
the wonderful scenery, and reminisced.
The stinging mountain air gave them
intense appetites, which they satisfied
with conservatively eaten fingernails.
For their money hnd all been left behind.
