Arrived In Eugene Last
Night; Day’s Rest Planned
Before Week-end Game.
0. A. 0. GAME, 22 TO 10
Two Southern Teams Leading
Conference; Stanford
Beats W. S. C.
With two decisive victories over O. A.
C. to their credit the University of Cal
ifornia basketball squad arrived in Eu
gene last night after the Aggie game,
and plan to take a day’s rest in prep
aration for their two game series with
the Lemon-Yellow quintet which will
open at the Armory tomorrow night. The
game at Corvallis last night resulted in
another easy w'in 'for the southerners
and the rest is expected to put them in
first class shape fof their tussle with
the varsity five. ‘
The Bears are making a strong bid
for the conference title and it now looks
as if Oregon is the only team in the
conference which can keep the south
erners from realizing on their plans.
Their comjrarative'easy time in defeat
ing the Stanford five at Berkeley last
Friday night, proves them to be one
of the strongest bidders for the title,
with only Oregon standing in their way.
Team Works Hard.
Coach Bohler gave his five a light
workout at the Armory yesterday after
noon and again took the team to Cor
vallis. He is taking no chances on the
games this week end. The men are in
good shape physically and the stjde of
play which California used against the
Oregon Aggies in their two game series,
has been w-orked out by Coach Bohler
with an idea of building up a defense to
beat it. The guards will again be count
ed on in the two games to aid the var
sity in bringing home the victory. Ore
gon’s guarding combination has been
one of the big features in the success of
the varsity quintet so far this season
and both Boiler and Chapman will be in
the line-up to go against the California
“Eddie” Durno and Marc Latham will*
probably be in the line-up at forwards
with “Hunk” Latham in the center po
sition. » “Bill” Reinhart’s work in the
Aggie game will be well remembered by
(he fans and he will probably be used
during a period of the game by Coach
uurno uoing uooa.
) The scoring combination of Bellcr,
Durno and “Hunk” Latham will prob
ably be depended upon to chalk up the
points against the invaders. If Durno
plays up to his style in the Oregon Ag
gie games here last week it will keep
the blue and gold defense going to keep
UP with him, and “Hunk” can be de
pended to slip a few over the edge of the
(rim. Beller usually manages to edge in
a few of the two point baskets, al
though he takes few shots.
Captain Jack Symes and Harold Coop
will probably start at forward for the
Bears, with Larkey at center and Art
Eggleston and Louis Le Hane at guards.
Ten men are with the California squad
and it is possible that Spense and
Douthit may start at one or the other
of the forwards, while O’Neil may start
in Larkey’s place at center with Thomp
son and Naylor for the substitute
Symes is playing his third year with
the California first string, and is one of
the fastest players on the five. He is
shifty and a good basket shooter, while
Coop is a steady and consistent player
and works well with Symes, usually
leaving the shooting of the field goals
to his running mate, while Coop is the
man who converts the free throws for
the Bears.
Larkey Is Rated High.
Larkey is a good defense player and is
about the same heighth as Latham. He
*s playing his first year with the var
S|t.v five this year. Eggleston, who will
Probably play one of the guard positions
was a choice for the all Pacific Coast
tire last season and is making a strong
bid. for that place this year. Le Hane is
another first year man with the Cali
fornia varsity, and he is rated as first
rate shot at the basket.
Campus Man Plays Havoc With 100
Hearts When He Refuses
To Be Vamped.
^ en*’ V1'di, vici.” And the conquered
were 100 strong against one lone man,
too. One hundred bits of feminity ns
fair to look upon as any assemblage this
side of the Mississippi—and not one es
caped when Bib Carl stood before them
and smiled.
The tragedy never would have occurred
had not Bib decided to visit his younger
sister at a girls’ school in La Verne,
Cal., on his way home from Phi Belt
convention last month. Bib was asked
to address the young women at chapel
while on the campus. The effect pro
duced by his one and only appearance
can best be described by quoting from
one of the Emerald’s exchanges, the
La Verne Campus .Times. Wallace Reid
himself found not have created more
—he came. Handsome? He was
tall, and dark, and rosy-cheeked. He
smiled—and that’s when it happened.
Mr. Carl will not soon be forgotten.
“Smile?* Oh, yes, they all smiled.
Who could help it? But their hearts
were leaden. Every girl in school was
involved. It was. love at first sight—
no one could presume to deny that. But
the sad part hasn’t come let. It was
the hopelessness of it all that broke
every maiden heart present before him
on that fateful morning. For how could
one man be vamped by 100 girls?
“The tragedy is out. Could words
express anything more hopeless? He
left immediately—never to return.”
Varsity Guards Who Will
Face Bears This Week-End
“Bill” Reinhart.
Dr. Hodge Has Plan to End
China's Famines and Floods
by Changing River's Course
China’s century-old enemies, famines
and floods, can be averted by a simple
engineering feat which would straighten
the courses of the Yangtze and Hwang
lio rivers, according to Dr. E. H. Hodge,
instructor of applied geology in the Uni
versity and former consulting geologist
of New York City, who spoke in Deady
hall under the auspices of the University
Science club Tuesday evening.
“The solution of China’s greatest
problem is connected with a flood plain,”
declared Dr. Hodge. “If we are to
solve this problem the Yangtze river will
have to do its own work. Obviously we
cannot take a block of China and tilt it
up, thereby increasing the velocity and
carrying power of the stream. The only
thing to do is to shorten the stream by
cutting canals. It is estimated that the
stream can be shortened 300 miles in
such a manner.” Dr. Hodge explained
that the shortening of the stream Would
increase its velocity, and an increased
velocity would cause the river to cut its
bed and carry the silt to the sea.
The growth of the streams from youth
through maturity to their present old
age was graphically illustrated by Dr.
Hodge with the use of colored crayons.
He showed how the level of a stream
had been raised about the surrounding
country by depositing silt on its bank,
forming a natural levee, and how at the
f^me time its bed had also been elev
ated. Dr. Hodge explained that the
Yangtze and Ilwang-lio rivers are con
stantly elevating themselves above the
surrounding flood plains, because of
their velocities and carrying powers.
China’s two largest rivers meander
over the flood plains in numerous ox
bow twists. In places these simple
sinuous curves come very close together,
and it would be simply a dredging feat
to connect the nearest places in the
bends by canals. It is estimated that
such a system of canals would shorten
the Yangtze from 1000 miles ,it pres
ent length, to 700 miles. This decrease
of 800 miles would mean an added ve
locity for the river, which would give
the water greater carrying power. The
river, instead of depositing pediment
would then be cutting its channel, and
after it once started cutting its bed,
danger from floods would be past.
Dr. Hodge said that China’s famines
and floods are closely related. Wlten
the rivers overflow their natural levees
the agricultural districts are inundated,
and since the flood plains are below the
. level of the river beds they would re
main under water for several years.
Over one million Chinese were drown
ed in 1887, cited Dr. Hodge, and mil
lions of dollars are sent to China an
nually from the United States. The
Yangtze river can be shortened at a cost
approximately that of the Panama canal.
To divert the waters of the Hwong-ho
to the Yangtze by constructing a canal
to the tributary of the Yangtze named
the Han would also be a simple engi
neering feat, said Dr. Hodge, and the
Increased volume of ,water would cut the
bed of the Yangtze below the flood
plain. He pointed out that the large
sums which are yearly sent to China to
assist the famine stricken would, go a
long way to give China a permanent re
lief from her age-old enemies, famine
and flood.
Spencer Says Students Can Work Out
Courses In Advance.
Whether or not students can plan
their work nine months ahead, thereby
eliminating two registration periods is
the problem which Carlton Spencer, reg
istrar, is working on at this time.
The cutting out of many short courses
during the past year or two has made
the year registration plan possible, ac
cording to Mr. Spencer, who contends
that students as well as business men
should be able to plan ahead for a con
siderable period of time.
A number of the schools of the Uni
versity have their work so outlined that
the year plan could go into effect with
out difficulty but there are still a num
ber of schools wherein the idea would
cause considerable confusion and trouble,
it is said.

Time for Edison Marshall Short Story
Competition Extended.
The time limit for the Edison Marshall
Short Story Contest has been extended
until March 1 in order to allow more
time to the competitors.
Professor W. F. G. Thacher of the
department of rhetoric, who has charge
of the contest, say§' that there are a
dozen or more students working on
stories for the contest, which they have
n!ot yet finished. “I should judge that
there will be perhaps fourteen turned in
when the contest closes,” Mr. Thacher
Three prizes will be awarded this year
for the winning short stories: First

Real jazz music, hot (logs, sand
wiches, cider, and free confetti will -be
a few of the things featured at the
Order of the “O” benefit jitney dance
at the Armory, Friday evening, after
the basketball game. “Call it a rough

chairman of the -dance. There i(re to

Absolutely no pigging until the dance
begins; paddles will be used on all of
fenders, Johnny added as a word of
warning. The feature dance will be the
awarding of diplomas to the recently
initiated Order of the “O” men. An
added feature is the fact that this dance
will be free, with confetti for every
one to throw. “Maybe there will be
other free dances later,” said Johnny
The Order of the “O” lias just taken
on new life, and its members expect to
take an active part in campus activities.
They hope that the students will co
operate with them in giving this dance,
as it is the only one they will supervise
this year.
The dance will begin just as soon as
the bleachers can be taken off the floor
after the game. “We are going to have
a big time; and remember, no pigging,”
said Johnny.
Fred B. Smith told a meeting of O,
A. C. students that the men he had met
at his afternoon meeting at U. of O,
were the finest men he had met in any
college in the United States. Hal Don

Constable Appears and Rudely Brings
Co-eds’ Rifle Practice to a
If you wore two University girls,
calmly shooting at a tin can perched on
the cemetery fence with a twenty-two,
and a man came along on a bicycle and
told you that you couldn’t do it, just
what would you do? Provided you had
been the two lively girls had that hap
pen to them the other day, you would
have gone on puncturing the tin can
just to show li^ni. Anyway, that is what
they did.
However, when the little man pulW
back his coat with a “now I’ve got you”
air. and showed the five-pointed star of
the law the two girls wilted perceptibly.
Visions of fines, jails, and finally of
bread and water rations, flitted through
their minds.
Perhaps it was their woe-begonc ex
pressions, or maybe only the kind heart
of the Eugene constable which finally
caused him to pedal away with parting
ndinonitions to “never do it again.”
Hence the next time when these two
girls go out for a hike on a pleasant
summer day, they will not take the
| twenty-two along for amusement.

hard against the Gamma Phi’s, but they
easily upheld their record of no de
feats. The Gamma Phi’s have worked
out a decidedly successful system of
passing, and with the accurate basket
shooting of their forwards, they are
conceded a good chance to win.
Practices for class teams began Tues
day afternoon, and the interclass series
will be played as soon as the doughnut
games have all been played. The sche

each day. Miss Emma Waterman, coach

The assembly program will have an
unusual musical number today when
Ruth Diehl, harpis|, will play “The
Rosary.” Norman Coleman, formerly of
Reed College, now head of the Loyal
Legion of Loggers and Lumberman will
speak on “Lincoln and Labor.” Mr.
Coleman is regarded as one of the lead

Department Work Is Nearly
Done; Engraving Start
ed, Says Editor.
A second campaign for subscriptions
to the Oregana will be put on next Mon
day and Tuesday. The purpose of this
second campaign is to reach the men of
the campus particularly. The women
subscribed in large numbers during the
last drive, but the men did not. To this
end an intensive campaign will be made
in the men’s living organizations. A
booth will be placed in front of the
library to reach all other students on
the campus.
The last campaign netted 000 sub
scriptions. This means that only about
one-third of the students on the campus
have subscribed for the Oregana. The
Oregana gives the students a compact
history of the college year and helps
bring back memories of those days at
“Oregon” long after students have

Department Work In Hand.
The department work of the Oregano,
which composes the bulk of the work for
year book for 1021, has been completed,
according to Wanna McKinney .editor.
“Almost all the department editora
have turned in their material to me, and
the remaining is due the latter part of
the week,” said Miss McKinney, “and
we hope to have a great deal of the ma
terial in the hands of the printers by
March 1.”
The engraving has been progressing
.very Well, according to the editor, and
about 200 pieces have been sent to
Hicks-Chatten, Portland engravers, to
have copper cuts made.
The majority of the pictures of’ the
various organizations have been collect
ed from the different photographers and
arc being sent to the engravers each day.
Advertising Total High.
Forest Littlefield, manager of the
Oregana and his assistants have .fin
ished the advertising work and have had
very good success in Portland as well as
in Eugene. Last year the total adver
tising obtained amounted to about $1150,
while this year the total has been raised
in the neighborhood of $2000.
A special effort is being made this
year to make the Oregana break even,
something which has not been done since
about 1905.
It is hoped that tiie Oregana will be
off the press a day or two before
junior week-end. An entirely new sys
tem of distributing the books is to be
worked out this year.

Is Not Filled Out
Of the 120 students who were placed
on probation at the beginning of the
winter term for failure to make re
quired hours 23 have not reported to
the Registrar’s office to obtain their
probation slips.
These slips must be filled out at once
according to the Registrar, and the de
linquent students may be dropped from
the University if they do not come up
to requirements in this regard. .
