Dubinsky Uuards Basket
The work of Dubinsky, who is one of
the emalleet men in. the meet, together
with that of Cole, his team mate, was
the best that has been shown during the
tounuamenl along lines of guarding. Nei- j
their of these players is large, but they
are clever and fist, which gives them
an advantage over size. Mo far in the
meet only one basket has been scored
on Dubinsky, which was gathered by one
of the Eugene players. In today's game
be guarded Morley to a fire-you-well,
and only allowed him to get about two
shots ' at the basket.

University of Oregon Basketball Team, Champions of Pacific Coast for 1919
Victory In Twelve Of Fifteen
Games Due to Team Work
and Speed.
Oregon's basketball quintet has just
completed one of the most successful
seasons in its history, ending with the
lemon-yellow team the champions of the
Pacific coast. The season started with
not very bright prospects for Oregon
with only two letter men back, Ned Fow
ler and Herman Lind, and only six possi
bilities from which to pick a winning
Of the first four games of the season.
Oregon won only one, making a none
too hopeful outlook for the season. Tne
first two games of the season with
Washington State College were close,
however, Oregon winning the first 29 to
23, and losing the second 36 to 35. due to
personal fouls of Oregon men.
Then followed the games with the Uni
versity of Washington at Seattle in which
Oregon lost 26 to 24 and 19 to 13.
After these games, Oregon’s luck turn
ed, however, and from that time on. the
lemon-yellow swept on to victory, win
ning every one of the eleven remaining
contests. In the games on the local floor
with the Washington aggregation Ore
gon was easily the vietoT in both games,
showing superior team work, ability to
shoot baskets and greater speed. The’
games were won 25 to 19 and 37 to 19.
0. A. C. Is Swamped.
Then came the O. A. C. games in which
Oregon defeated the Aggies at Corvallis
27 to 17 and 36 to 16 and on the local
floor 34 to 17 and 28 to 23, the last
game being hotly contested. O. A. C.
showed up much better in the games he,re
than in those at Corvallis, having better
team work and displaying ability to shoot
i baskets. In the second set of games with
W. S. C. at Pullman, Oregon won easily
by scores of 38 to 28 and 43 to 27.
In the games with the University of
California at Berkeley, Oregon took both
games, 39 to 37, and 30 to 28, playing a
clean, swift game and showing great abil
ity in making baskets from hard angles.
Eddie Purno, forward, was Oregon’s
star throughout all the games, getting in
to every play, dodging his guards, often
big men, with remarkable skill and shoot
ing baskets from all angles of the floor.
Durno himself made 231 of Oregon's to
tal of 438 points, in this season’s con
test. In several of the games, Durno
made more points than the opposing
team’s final score.
Only Six in Squad.
All the other members of the team did
good work and were mentioned in press
reports as splendid support. The team
played the season with only six men,

When Mr. Tiffany became registrar
in the summer of 1005 he also held the
position of secretary to the president.
At that time the students registered in
Yillard Hall, one corner of the first floor
being used for the president’s office. On
the president's left Mr. Tiffany had his
office and on the right was the business
office. When Mr. Tiffany became regis

Managed Several Activities.
A. II. Tiffany was graduated from the
University in 1005 and soon after receiv
ing his degree took up his work with the
University. While in college Mr. Tiffany
was manager of the Emerald, managed
the Men’s lilec club, baseball one year,
and other student activities. He was
graduate manager at the University dur
ing the years 1015-10. 1016-17, 1017-18.
Mr. Tiffany snid that lie had gained his
experience in the printing business
through handling the publication of Uni
versity matter, as the University print
ing was under the management of the
registrar's office for a good many yenrs.
“There is no nicer place in the world
to work than a university.” Mr. Tiffany
said yesterday, “especially the University
of Oregon. The faculty is most agreeable
to work with, and I don’t think there is
ns nice a man in the United States to
work with as President Campbell."
Printing House Is Largo.
Mr. Tiffany said that some changes
will be made in the arrangement of the
building of the Yoran Printing House
giving more room to the firm and a front
on Olive street as well as on Eighth ave
nue. The firm is one of five largest print
ing houses in the state, perhaps the larg
est outside of Portland.
Myron Hoyt, from Hood River, and
Toll Saunders, of the Phi DeP chapter
at O. A. C., are spending the week-end
at the Phi Delta Theta house. *
Dean Sheldon Says It Should
Come Gradually. Can
Expand Later.
Herman Lind Says He Can Do
It If Others Can. Ella
Dews For It.
The subject of student control for ths
niversity is exciting more comment
mch tiny both among the faculty and the
students themselves. Most of the argu
nents are favoring the movement with
some few conditional sanctions. Among
Ihe faculty several members have ex
pressed their opinions on the idea in
Dean H. I). Sheldon of the School of
Education says; "1 think the students
should be given the largest measure of
control consistent for efficiency aud'good
otdei, particularly if they are interested
in it and the larger majority desire it. I
believe, however, that it should be given
to them a step at a time and then if
they make good and handle it efficiently
it should he extended. My observations
have been that some students are inter
ested in it and thnt others are not. To
make student control a success the ma
jority has to take an interest in it. If
they should take an interest and work at
it, it would he a success but if they should
not take an Interest in it and leave it to
a lew it would not; he a success. As to
whether the students are interested in it
enough to make it a success—that is for
them to determine.”
Best Way to Handle Question.
Professor Warren P. Smith, of the
department of geology; “I think it is the
best, way to handle the question of gov
ernment. It has been worked out. in Wis
consin and Vanderbilt universities and in
the latter place the faculty does not even
have to consider the matter of cheating
in exams. In one instance that I know
of three members of an organization
came to a faculty member and told hint
that he would not have to look into the
matter of one of their members cheating
in an examination for they had already
seen to his leaving college. That was a
drastic action hut. just what they did.
“Wisconsin had a student senate which
acted on a!! disciplinary matters during
my time there. The students hardly ever
came before the faculty unless it was
something quite serious. All minor of
fences came to the student senate. In
fact, while there I hardly know what the
rules were; I knew that I couldn’t do
some certain things hut for the most part
it was left to me what I should do
Break Not Too Marty Rules.
Speaking from a personal standpoint,
and not. from an official one, I do not
rare what the students do outside the
classrooms. I have my own way of got
»tinjc the work done in the classroom
and outside I do not worry about what
they do. My criticism would be not
against the breaking of rules but agaiust
too many rules. I take it for granted &
that the students know that the three
most important things are that they he
honest, decent and studious. And I do
not see why they cannot regulate these
matters just ns well as the faculty.”
Dr. W. P. Boynton, of the physics de
partment: “f believe that most of the
faculty would welcome any move otward
student self government. We already
have a considerable measure of it in prac
tice. I am in favor of extending it just
as far :\p the student body is willing to
undertake the responsibility that must
accompany it. It is obvious that as re
gards anv serious matters of discipline,
in case the responsible governing board
was guilty of any flagrant failure to
maintain the necessary discipline, the
faculty would naturally proceed against
this board first, and later if at all against
the original offender. The unwillingness
to assume such heavy responsibilities be
fore there was a sufficiently strong stu
dent sentiment to back up real self-gov
ernment is probably why such a plan has
not been adopted here earlier.”
