Salem, Or., Jan. 20.— (Special to The
Emerald.)—If there be any lemon-yel
low supporter over-confident that Ore
gon is to romp serenely away toward
victory when it meets Willamette here
\ next Friday, let him boast but little and
wager less, lest ridicule and a flat pock
et-book be his portion.
These Methodists down here haven't

'basketballs, shoot with an accuracy that

No doubt Oregon’s five is superior to
that of the Aggies. But so is this quin
tet of the Methodists. And although
these Salem tossers may favor the enact
ment of laws to make blnp Sundays, they
don’t let -this love of peace Effect them
on Fridays and Saturdays.
Regardless of what he really thinks.
Coach Mathews is frank to say he ex
pects defeat next Friday.
"Is that just bunk or—” he. was asked.
"No.’ he insisted. “Oregon is un
doubtedly far better than the Aggies —
a great deal better. And there is another
thing to figure iu when you consider Ore
gon—members of its teams never quit."
And, after this little tribute, which Ik
did not intend for publication. Coach
Mathews fell silent.

admirably well, to keep it out of tlieif

"Pygmalion,”a comedy by Bernard
Shaw, produced under the direction of
Fergus Iteddie, was enthusiastically re
ceived by, an appreciative audience at its
first performance last night in Guild
Charlotte Banfield, as Liza Doolittle,
a street flower seller, delighted the audi
ence with her vivacious and charming
mannerisms. Her transformation from
a girl of the gutter who said she “didn’t
want to talk grammar but I want to
talk like a ioid.v” to a well bred woman
was accomplished under the supervision
of Henry Higgins, played by Fergus
Iteddie, an extremely selfish and over
bearing professor of phonetics. Pro
; fessor Iteddie seemed even to surpass
his former triumps in Guild theatre.
Applause greeted the appearance of
Madam Itose McGrew. who played the
part of Mrs. Iliggins, mother of Henry.
Her portrayal of a mother’s anxieties
over an excentric son was superb.
Manford Michael, as Colonel Pickering,
and Irene Hugh, as Mrs. Pearce, played
their parts well as friends of Henry Hig
gins. Novell Thompson, as Alfred Doo
little, a dustman who couldn’t “afford
morals” and was proud and happy to be
one of the “undeserving poor”, gave the
audience many a chance to laugh.
So many persons were turned away
last night that it was decided to give
“Pygmalion” again tonight, as well as
PRESIDENT MAKES TRIP.
President Campbell was in Portland

Underclass Mix Started _

Did you ever stop to wonder how the
Dregon traditions got started. There is
Hello Lane” and the imiior corduioys,
and the underclass mix. mid--but we're
Roing to tell you about the mix now and
• he others later.
Once upon a time, in the year 191?! A.
D.. 2” seniors were yanked up on the
oarl>et for attempting to place the frosh
ot that year in their proper relation to
from then on there was a deep-felt
need of a method to properly key down,
subdue, subjugate and otherwise ehasten
the first year men. The juniors of 191?!
undertook to supply this need, and to
them belongs the credit for the institu
tion of the, underclass mix.
Thr tradition has since flurished and
prospered. Every fall sees Kincaid field
the no-raan's land of a desperate strug
gle between freshmen and those who
were freshmen but one short year ago.
Senior policemen with stars the size of
dinner plates insure fair play on the
field, and Dean Straub sits in the grand
stand, or nearby, and insists that justice
be done. Many and varied are the forms
of contest. There is always a flag snatch
ing, a sand bag contest, tug of war, and
other manly sports.
The sophomores have to date an un
broken record of winning. This proves
that one year at the University makes
i superior men of them. For. as above
stated, it is always insured to be a
j “square mix.”
MEN'S GLEE TO GIVE
CONCERT IN PORTUND
ON FRIDAY. JIN. 28

( prano, to Make Appear
i ance on Program.
EVANS’ ‘OREGON PLEDGE
SONG’ WILL BE SUNG
22 Men Making Trip Will
Leave Early and Have
Lunch at Club.
The first concert by the University of
Oregon’s Men’s Glee Club to be given
in Portland for several years will be
staged in the Municipal Auditorium on
Friday evening, Jan. 28. Madame Ilose
McGrew, head of the voice department
of the University school of music, will
accompany the club as guest artist.
“We will present a strong, well-bal
anced program which should interest
everyone” was the comment of John
Stark Evans, director of the club. The
first is the heaviest part of the pro
gram. he continued. The stage lights will
be dimmed for the second part which is
made up of negro melodies. The last
part is lightest of all, consisting largely
of yaudeville sketches, while the closing
number is a medley of Oregon songs.
The program has a strong start and
works up to a “knock-out” in the humor
ous selections of the last part. Besides
the numbers in the program the club is
well supplied with very light encores so
they feel that the audience can be kept
“on its toes” dtfring the whole evening.
22 Will Make Trip.
Twenty-two men are to make thp
trip. The concert is to be given under
the auspices of the Ellison-White Ly
ceum Bureau and is being advertised ex
tensively. according to the Glee Glub
management, to a great extent through
the University alumni.
The club will leave Eugene Friday
morning in order to reach Portland in
time to attend a luncheon given in their
honor by the University Club. A few
songs will probably be sung while there.
The ’’Oregon Pledge Song” written by
Sir. Evans will be sung in Portland for
the first time at this concert. The song
was written last fall to be used as an
opening number for concerts. It was to
take the place of the mottos sung by
many eastern clubs at the beginning of

Coach Bohler Says Team
Hopes to Break Even in
LINE-UP TO START
Opponents Rated High States
Trainer But They Are
“We will be well pleased if we can
break even in tlie games on this trip,”
Coach George M. Bolder said last night,
in speaking of the team’s chances for
wins in the games to be played in the
northern trip and in the two games with
Willamette to be played tonight and to
morrow night. In the opinion of Bolder
if the team can win as Inany as they
lose on the trip, the return games to be
(played here in Eugene will not cause
any great worry.
The Willamette team is going to prove
one of the strongest of the three which
will be met before the varsity returns to
Eugene, according to all reports. Wil
lamette handed the Oregon Aggies a
drubbing at Corvallis, Tuesray night, by
a score of 36 to 19, and in the opinion
Of witnesses it wa's an earned victory.
The Aggies never had a chance with the
Willamette five, and the size .of the
score would indicate the difference in
strength. However, the Aggies held
Willamette to a one point lead in the
game which the two teams played at
Salem last Friday evening.
Willamette Good Shuts.
“Willamette has a good team,” Boh
ler said yesterday, “they have the same
men back who played the game for them
jlast year, and they arc a polished ag
gregation.” Bolder believes they arc not
unbeatable and has been working his
team to take advantage of the defects in
the team work of the Willamette
five since he witnessed the game at Cor
vallis the other night. The Willamette
five arc wonders at long shots although
a number of their baskets in the Aggie
game were luck shots. They still lack
some of the smoother points in team
work. In the opiaion of Bolder the Wil
lamette five did not piny up to the class
that the varsity did in the last Saturday
night game with the Chemawa Indians
The line-up to start the game tonight
given out by the coach before the team
left will be the same as the one which
started against Chemawa: Bellar and
Keinhart at guards, “Hunk” Latham at
, center, and “Marc” Latham and Duruo
at forwards, “Nish” Chapman will be
the sixth man to be taken on the trip and
it is probable that he will be worked at
guard during the game tonight in place
of cither lleinhart or Bellar. .
Guards Will Do Good Work.
Bohler is of the opinion that the
guards will hold the Willamette forwards
down tonight; he was well pleased with
the playing of both Bellar and Reinhart
in keeping the Chemawa forwards out
from the basket, and he believes that
Willamette will not get in any more
often. O. A. C. is weak in the guard de
partment according to witnesses of the
game there, and it was this that enabled
the Willamette five to run up tlie big
score they did.
The team will not return here over
Sunday, but will leave Salem Sunday for
Pullman where they will play Washing
ton State on Tuesday and Wednesday
nights, going from Pullman to Seattle to
meet the University of Washington quin
tet on Friday and Saturday nights. These
games in the north are going to furnish
some stiff competition as both Washing
ton teams are rated high this year, and
the varsity will face a hard schedule in
| the four games to be played there.
