Coach Bohlor and eight members of the
rarsity basketball squad will leave this
morning for Portland, where the open
ing game of t^e season will be played
against the Multnomah dub quintet at
the club gym tonight. The men who will
make the trip are Durno, Mare Latham,
Knudseu and Base, forwards; “Hunk”
Latham, center; Seller, Reinhart and
Couch, guards.
tjpe has been allowed for prac
tice jwfOre the opener and the team work
of the lemon-yellow is far from being
very polished. According to Coach Boh
ler, there is little chance for Oregon to
win this game from the winged M five,
but they will try their best at least. The
game was arranged more as a practice
contest and in order to give the coach a
chance to get a good idea as to just what
to depend upon for the material for his
team in the conference games.
Letter Men to Start.
Practically all the men will get a
chance in the game during the evening al
though the line-up at the start will be
made up of the last year letter men so
.far as possible, the only new members
being “Hunk” Latham who will start at
center and “Billy” Reinhart at guard.
Eddie Dm-no and Marc Latham will start
at forwards, Marc has been shifted to
forward in practice and “Hunk” used at
the pivot position. Bellar and Reinhart
.will form the guard combination to start.
The club quintet has been working out
bard in preparation for the coming game,
.and with a combination of veterans who
have been practicing together, Oregon
will no doubt show the ragged edges in
.comparison. Coach Bolder has been un
able to give all the promising material
he has out a chance to see what they can
do yet, on account of the hurried prep
aration for the game and has been using
.only his veterans to get a little team
w’ork drilled into them before the con
test. Following this game, a hard priie
tice schedule will be carried out and
every man will be given a good tryout.
So far the turnout of good material has
been pleasing to the coach and he is
optimistic over the outlook for the com
ing season.
Whitman Game Expected.
The schedule as drawn up last term
will be played with few changes noted
so far although it is possible that Ore
gon may take a trip into Idaho, to play
the Idaho team and also a game with
Whitman at Walla Walla during the fore
Part of March. Idaho and Whitman a; e
desirious of a game there and it is al
most impossible to work them in at any

Pyroclastic Whiskers Sent
Here By Dr. Warren D. Smith
From Fiery Hawaiian Craters
Volcanoes vising hoary grey heads into
the clouds have many times been pic
tured by word-artists, but who has ever
hoped to see real volcanic hair? Ijro
clastic whiskers, known as Pelee’s hair,
are now . on display in the geology
museum located in "Johnson hall.
The volcanic hair is a part of a varied
collection recently received from Dr.
Warren D. Smith, formerly head of the
geology department, now connected with
the department of geology of the Ph.lip
pine bureau of mines. l)r. Paekatd,
present head of the geology department
of the Uiyversity, explains that the Pelee
hair formation, black brittle filiments
intertwined into a mat, is the result of
volcanic action and the wind. The lava,
flung high into the air from a boiling
caldron of melted rock nearly without
viscidity is caught by the wind and spun
into tiny filaments/ of glass. The aeo
lian-spun glass lodges on the higher
walls of craters and collects into a liair
like formation.
Fossil rain-drops, volcanic ropes, salts
from the roof of lava tubes, and lava
stalactites from Kilauea are among t he
assortment of pyroclastic freaks in the
collection. Lava rock from the volcanic
flow which issued from the crater of
Manna Lon in 1919 still*retains the lus
tre of its recent formation.
In a letter received from Dr. Smith
which was read in the meeting of Cross
roads Thursday night the former mem
ber of the Oregon faculty told briefly of
his present work in the Islands, of the
after effects of his third and final ty
phoid prophylactic treatment, and of a
visit to Japan some time ago where, he
said, the hostility of the Japanese toward
the Americans was very noticeable.
Company Will Take Trip In
Spring Vacation.
With Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion”
opening the season in Guild theatre for
the coming term on the evenings of Jan
uary 20 and 22, the dramatic depart
ment will have one of the biggest runs
in the history of the University.
Played by a picked cast including Mine.
Bose McGrew, Prof. Reddic, and Char
lotte Banfield. the production of Shaw’s
comedy promises to be exceptional.
During the following week “Two Goo*
tlemen of Verona,” one* of Shakespeare's
earliest comedies, will be presented by
the company on January 27 and 29. For
February Dioken’s “Tale of Two Cities”
will be played on the 24th and 25th. It
has been adapted for the stage by Mr.
Cooperating with the school of music,
the “Mikado,” light opera by Gilbert and
Sullivan, will be given from March 8 to

be given, although it was not as yet been
It is intended to close the work of the
iterm with a spring trip either to the
south or the coast. The finance to cap
italize the trip will be taken from the
fund now on hand, which has been ac
cumulating from the proceeds of the
plays already given.
Six Organizations Show 100 Per Cent
The Red Cross membership roll call
on the campus totals $573 up to the
present date, which is an increase of
$10S over last year. Miss Mozelle Hair,
chairman of the campus roll call commit
tee, said yesterday, that she wishes to
thank the students and faculty for their
generous response to the roll call and
i their hearty cooperation in making it a
success on the campus.
A 100 per cent contribution was given
from six houses; Alpha Delta Pi, Chi
Omega, Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Kappa
Gamma, Zeta Rho Epsilon and Delta
Theta Phi. Hendricks hall heads the
list of contributions from the student
houses of residence with 110 members.
Of the total $573, the faculty con
tributed $50, which was secured by spe
cial solicitors in each building, several
faculty members contributing more than
the $1.00 membership.

Hygiene Classes Are To. Use
Works of Runquist.
A series of anatomical wall charts is
being painted by Arthur Runquist, a
major in the arts department, for use in
the department of hygiene and physical
education for women. These charts are
painted in oil and picture deep dissec
tions of muscles, bones and different
parts of the body. Mr. Runquist is copy
ing them from the Spalteholz atlas, one
of the best works on deep dissections in
existence. Each section of the chart is
three by seven feet in size, being made
to conform with the other anatomical
charts of the department.
These charts are used extensively in
the department in the classes in applied
anatomy, kinesiology, corrective and
remedial work. Before the war ana
tomical charts were available only in
Europe, but recently Miss Cummings has
received a number of the American Fro
hse Charts which she says are just as
good as the foreign product and are
much cheaper and more easily obtained.
The Spalteholz atlas, from which Mr.
Runquist is making his charts, is a
foreign product and has not been dupli
cated by American producers as yet.
The mannikin, or “Pierrot,” as he is
better known in the department was
received last spring from Europe. He is
used extensively in the class work of
the department, and represents a human
body with removable parts. Miss Cum
mings was unable to purchase anything
of this type in America so had to order
it from abroad. She is however, well
pleased to be able to secure anatomical
charts of such excellent quality fom
home producers.
University Students Required to lake
Only One Term at Monmouth.
University students who wish to teach
in elementary school of the state will be
affected by arrangements made at a
meeting of representatives of the Univer
sity, Oregon Agricultural College, and the
State Normal School recently held at
Salem in the office of the state superin
tendent of public instruction. Formerly,
University students wishing elementary
certificates have finished two years of
work here and then have gone to the
Normal for a half or two-thirds of a
year to fulfill the Normal requirements.
Hereafter, students may do all but twelve
weeks of their work here and take the
last quarter, twelve weeks, at the Nor
mal, the work to be accepted by the Uni
versity upon graduation and by the state
as the Normal training requirement for
elementary certification.
The Normal School, which formerly re
quired at least a half year of residence
work, will accept the work done in the
University for all but the last twelve
weeks which will consist largely of peda
gogy and practice teaching.
Dr. II. D. Sheldon, dean of the school
of education, represented the University
at this informal conference.

will both be out for the distance event
again. Guy Koepp who ran the mile for
the frosh last year will try for a place
on the varsity. Some of the best of
last year’s freshmen are back, among
them being Peltier in the half mile and
Collins in the quarter. Oberteuffer, Lar
sen and Wyatt will all be back in the
sprints. Phillips and Ingle will help Port
wood w’ith the pole vault, and Tuck may

is being manifested in track this year be
cause of the fact that the Pacific coast
conference meet is to be held in Eugene
this spring.
Henry Foster, a former Oregon run
ner, will handle the frosh team this year.
The team will have a good start in Ralph
Spearow, the pole vaulter, and A1 Gril

The University of Washington plans
to have an illustrated monthly magazine.
It is proposed to follow the general type
of such publications as the Cornell Era,
the Yale Graphic, and the Harvard
Crimson. While of a serious nature it
is not to confine itself to the field of a
literary magazine, but is expected 1o
take the lead in forming student opinion
both by editorials and by articles on stu
dent problems, short stor'es. verse, illus
trated articles on collegiate sports, and
other topics of general interest will be
contained in the magazine.

Turns Down Appointment To
West Point.
Arthur Tuck, track star, member of
the freshman team last year, and partic
ipant in the Antwerp Olympic games
this summer, has reentered the Univer
sity and enrolled in the school of corn
;merce. He will bo eligible for varsity
track this season.
Tuck arrived in Eugene Wednesday
evening, and considered accepting an
(■appointment to West Point before decid
ing to reenter school. He has spent the
past term in eastern Oregon. For a
while it was thought that Tuck was con
sidering attending the Oregon Agricult
ural College, until his arrival Wednesday
set aside all rumors that he was con
sidering, attending some other school
than Oregon. >
National prominence was achieved by
Tuck two years ago, when in the last in
terscholastic track meet held in Oregon,
he won the meet single-handed, repre
senting Redmond high school. Last year
he attended Oregon, when under the tu
telage of Bill Hayward he demonstrated
his track ability in the meets engaged in
by the first year men. Last summer he
was one of the two University of Oregon
men to compete in the Olympic games
held in Belgium. His return bolsters
track prospects considerably.

Dictation of “Big Three”
Not To Be Followed,
Says Benefiel.
There is still a possibility that Offegon

Reason. In reply to a wire asking the
Berkeley school for confirmation of the
October 29 date originally scheduled utt
der the coast conference, California atfr
thorities announced that they would play
Oregon on October 29 in Berkeley.
Graduate Manager Marion McClain
immediately wired the California athletic
authorities that Oregon would play the
Bears in Eugene, October 29, but not is
Berkeley. - . '
Since the game was originally sched
uled for Eugene, McClain thinks It'uia^
reasonable that California should wish
to play the game at Berkeley, and con
siders it an attempt by California to ■
