nition of his standing among public ser

The work of Sherwood Eddy for the
last 25 years is known equally in the
student world of Asia, Europe and Amer
ica. Mr. Eddy is a western man, born
in Kansas. His mother went to school
with Buffalo Bill in the early Wild West
days among the first settlers of the
West. As a graduate of Yale and a post
graduate student • of Princeton he also
knew college life in the East.
His travel for years among American
colleges has acquainted him with all
phases of American student life. Those
at Des Moines will remember his break
ing away from the subject assigned him
on the Far East to grapple fearlessly
with the big social problems confronting
America and the students of today. They
jvill recall the fifteen hundred students
Fd*o went to a neighboring building to
ask questions of Mr. Eddy, and how, for
two hours, he replied in the rapid fire of
his frank and fearless answers on the
<n°ral, religious, social, industrial and po
litical problems of the day.
Modern Man in Every Way.
His more than 20 years experience
among the students aud leading men of
Asia and his work among followers of
|8ll of the world’s great faiths and relig
ions, as well as among students under
the spell of materialism and skepticism in
Europe, has broadened his vision aud
sympathy for men. Although for many

The Sig Alplis sprang a surprise on
campus dopesters when they scored a
20-2 victory over the highly rated Kappa
Theta Chi five, while the Fijis in a rough
and tumble contest put Friendly hall be
low beck 20-8 in doughnut basketball.
Usually brilliant in their play, Kappa
Theta Chi was apparently unable to get
under a full head of steam against the
aggressive S. A. K. quintet. Say at for
word for the Kappa Chis making the sin
gle field goal registered by the losers.
Kays, forward, and Liebe, guard, for the
winners played brilliant ball in their re
spective positions, each man being cred
ited with three field goals. Moore, for
ward, and Ford, center, looked good for
the Sig Alphs.

In the struggle between hriencily hall
and Phi Gamma Delta, Wagner, forward
for the dorm men, played a stellar brand
of ball throughout, and Jones succeeded
in slipping in two field baskets from his
position at guard. For the victorious
Fijis, Alstock, forward, was the big point
getter, ringing six field goals. Gore,
guard, also played excellent ball, shoot
ing two baskets.

Meeting Sponsored by School
of Journalism Each
Winter Term.
Newspaper men from every section <
the state, from Baker on the far east
ern border to St. Helens on the west and
from Portland to Grants Pass, are for
two days guests of the University of Ore
gon throtigh its school of journalism at
the Third Annual Newspaper Confer
ence. The advance guard of the scribes
arrived early yesterday, and when the
conference opens in the journalism build
ing at 9:00 this morning with Col. Carle
Abrams, of the Salem Statesman, pre
siding, Dean Eric Allen of the school of
journalism estimates that there will be
60 or more newspaper men in attend

some of the most influential men in the
According to Dean Allen the prospects
are for the best conference Oregon ever
had, and the program is the best and
strongest yet prepared for any of the
conferences. Salient points regarding
the Oregon newspaper law, foreign ad

Students Will Give Entertainments in
Small Towns Over State;
Best Talent Used.
Plans for the forming small concert
companies to represent the University in
giving entertainments in towns of the
state which are unable to support the
larger organizations, are being worked
out by Dean John J. Landsbury, of the
school of music, and the extension di
These companies will be recruited
from the best of the University talent
and will make trips over the state giving
entertainments in the towns at which the
orchestra and the glee clubs do not stop.
The main idea in sending out these
companies is that of public service, said
Dr. Landsbury, in discussing the new
project. The little towns deserve as much
as the larger ones to be allowed to hear
University attractions as much as the
larger ones.
If this plan is worked out it will be of
great advertising value to the University,
the dean continued. Towns will be
reached that can in no other way be
Then there is much experience to be
gained in that way that cannot be got on
the campus because of lack of room, Dr.
Landsbury concluded. It will give stu
dents many more chances to appear in
The plans are not complete as yet, but
it is expected that they will be worked
out soon.
A dinner in honor of Bishop William
O. Shepard will be given Sunday even
ing at 5:30 at the Methodist church, by
the Methodist students of the University.
This is being planned so that all students
may have a chance to meet the Bishop
and talk informally with him. Kather
ine Watson, president of the First Chap
I ter Epworth League is in charge of the
arrangements. All Methodist students
are urged to be present.
Oregon Varsity Tossers to Play
Chemawa Indians Tonight; Hard
Game Is Expected at Armory
The two games with the Chemawa
Indians slated for tonight and tomorrow
night will be the first to be played by
the varsity five on the new Armory floor,
the plan of using the Armory having been
recently decided upon. In the opinion of
the coaches and managers, the new plan
will probably serve to interest a great
many more townspeople in basketball
and will assist in swelling the gate re
Assistant Manager Jack Benefiel an
nounces that the games will be called
promptly at 7:15 o’clock on both even
ings dnd the doors will open at C:30
sharp. It will not be necessary to pre
sent the student body tickets at these
first two games but the next game will
be considered as the third in order on
the tickets.
New bleachers have been secured for
the Armory and there will be plenty of
seating capacity to take care of the
crowd, no reserved seats will be held
with the exception of a section for
townspeople who wish to witness ike
game. ,
Officials for the game have not been
announced as yet, and thesj will be de
cided upon today. The Indians nre com
ing with a strong aggregation this year
and will no doubt give the varsity a hard
race for the honors. At last reports
last night it was doubtful whether ‘Nish’
Chapman would be allowed to play in the
game tonight. Chapman’s case is still
before the faculty and no definite deci
sion has been roaehced as yet.
The probable line-up for tonight will
be the same as that used against Mult
nomah Club in Portland last week, Dur
no and M. Latham at forwards, II. Lmli
as at center and Reinhart and Belief at
guard. The entire squad will no doubt
have a chance to get into the game and
Coach Bohler will probably give some
of his green material a chance to show
what they can do.
A little over a week remains before
the opening of the conference schedules
and everything possible is being done to
whip the team into first class shape be
fore the games with Washington State
College to be played at Whitman on the
2uth of this month.
Coach Huntington Discusses
Latest Football Freak.
Cambridge, Mass., Jan. 12. — Har
vard’s football strategy in important
games for several years has been devel
oped in part over telephone wires while
the games were in progress, it was
learned today. In the games with Yale
and Princeton for the last two yeftrs,
the game with Centre College last fall
and in the intersectional game with Uni
versity of Oregon at Pasadena a year
ago, Crimson coaches perched on the top
of the stands, telephoned criticisms, and
suggestions to supplement the*side line
observations of Head Coach Bob Fisher.
In the game at Pasadena the Crimson’s
coach wire was set up by linemen of the
telephone company at that place and re
ports have come east that the Univer
sity of California used a similar system
in its post season game with Ohio State
University two weeks ago.
In commenting on the above Asso
ciated Press report last evening, Coach
“Shy” Huntington of the Oregon eleven
which met Harvard at Pasadena last
year, said that he believed it easily pos
sible for the Harvard coaches to use
such a system.
While Coach Huntington was in the
south this winter where he witnessed
the California-Ohio State game he heard
a number of rumors about the telephone
system which Harvard is reported to
have used. He made no statements in
regard to the reports however until the
Associated Press dispatch of yesterday.
There are no rules which bar a team
from using such methods in a game, al
though a code of ethics might agree that
such a system would hardly be in accord
with good sportmanship as it is supposed
to be practiced among colleges.
Five Musical Desperadoes "Hold Up”
Sorority Houses.
, Real thrill waves followed in the wake
I of the five desperadoes who entered so
I rority houses on the campus Wednesday
! night, masked completely with hectic ban
danas and armed to the teeth with lev
elled jack knives. While one of the gang
kept his eye and his gun on the girls the
rest grouped themselves about the piano
and with the aid of that instrument, a
banjo and a violin, they proceeded to
produce tickling syncopation as an ac
companiment to their vocal efforts.
The suddenness of their entrance was
as naught to that of their exit and the
bang of the door behind them left ex
cited girls shrilling wild “Whos?”
The pink cheeks of the banjo player
;and his rain-wet marcel furnished a clue,
however, to the identity of the gang. It
was only the Phi Delts out playing
around as a feature of “exchange dinner
night” among sorority houses on the
Eugene Boys and Girls To
Play in Women’s Bldg.
Tomorrow morning the classes in play
ground supervision begin their practice
work, and a great number of the children
of Eugene will be given a chance to play
in the new women’s building. The work
is conducted under the supervision of
Miss Cummings nnd Miss Waterman,
but will be so organized that each mem
ber of tbe class will be given a chance
to get practical work in the supervision
of all kinds of playground activities.
The morning of play will begin with
fifteen minutes of general apparatus
work in the big gymnasium for all the
children, after which they will be divided
into three groups; the larger girls, the
larger boys, and the little children. The
little ones will be entertained by story
telling and a few simple games. The
older girls will have folk dancing, games
and swimming, and the boys, games,
track work and swimming.
The work will be under the general
supervision of a different member of the
class each Saturday. Workiug directly
undjir her, will be the heads of Ihe dif
ferent groups, who in turn will super
vise the work of her three assistants.
Each girl will be given a chance to do
each kind of work, some time during
the term.
The following girls are members of
the playground class and will be in charge
of the Saturday morning class: Florence
Furuset, Emma Jane Garbade, Myrtle
Magerle, Elsie Hildebrand, Carolyn Can
non, Lois Barnett, Geneva Stehno, Grace
Tigard, Margaret Russell, Echo Baldar
ree, Alice Evans, Mildred Apperson nnd

Flies, Fleas, Elephants Add
To. Interest Is Bishop’s
Assembly Message.
(Love of God! Greatest of All;
1 Glee Club Numbers
Much Enjoyed.
Love nature, love your work and love
God if you would be happy ia the advice
of Bishop W. O. Shepard who addressed
the student assembly at Villard hall on
Thursday. Bishop Shepard is the Meth*
odist Episcopal bishop of the Northwest
division, which includes Alaska. He was
introduced by President P. L. Campbell
and greeted by a large and appreciative
audience. V'
The Bishop admitted at the beginnisf
that we can not be perfectly happy be*
cause this is not a perfect world bpt
continued that if one is not reasonably
happy it is his own fault.
“Too many of us keep our eyes In the
dust made by our feet,” and “You can
see as much with a microscope as with
a telescope” were some of the eapyop*
sions that he used in urging the.8tt|*
dents to cultivate a love of nature aa an
aid to happiness. '
D epression Wondered At.
What with the wonderful world of
nature about him to "feel at home in’’
and at which to marvel Bishop Shepard
wondered that any man could feel de
pressed for long. Fundamental . pti)K|
pies of science and natural processes are
here to be enjoyed by all, he said, g's.hf
talked fancifully of bits that attracted
his attention, coloring the whole with
observations on flies, fleas, elephant*
and other things.
If you -would be happy you, must find
joy in your work, forget the idea of ma
terial gain as an incentive and work for
the joy of working and to be of aerate*.
“You must get off the fence as to yodr
philosophy of life if you are to find hap
piness.” The love of God ia the. greatest
of all factors in human life and la more
and more being appreciated as such* If
young people would, early in life, take a
definite stand on moral issues greater
happiness would be the result.

Folts of Commerce Department HoMt
Classes for Business Mon.
Tinder the direction of FbrankUty ' F.
Folts of the commerce department class
es in banking are being held for the local
chapter of the American Institute Of
Banking. These classes are part of the
extension division of the University apd
are given upon the request of local
hankers who make up the claas member
ship. All phases of banking and banking
problems are studied.
The success of this, Mr. Folts said,
would open up a wide field for further
work along this line by the commerce
department. “If classes in banking are
successful,” said Mr. Folts, "I see no
reason why classes in salesmanship, ac
counting or any other courses might ifOt
be given for local business people.”
From the standpoint of attendance
and enthusiasm the first class held Wed
nesday night was a success. I only wisti
thut my classes in the University were
as interested,” said Mr. Folts. >.■ -
