Hard Contests To Be Played
This Week-end; Easy Sail
ing Is Not Expected.
Play High School Five To
night; Have Already
Beaten Same Quintet.
Eight freshmen will leave with Coach
“Shy” Huntington today to play the
Franklin high school five of Portland
there tonight. The freshmen will also
play the Multnomah Club intermediates
at the club on Saturday.
The men who are going to make the
trip are the same that went to Corvallis
last week: Rockhey, Alstock, Wilsey,
McMillan, Blackman, Chapman, Douglas
and Goar. The starting line-up for to
night’s game will be Rockhey and Al
stock, forwards, McMillan, center, and
Douglas and Chapman guards.
Played Befote.
The first game of the series with
Franklin was played here during the
first part of the season. The freshmen
were able to take that game b,V a score
of 28 to 9. At that time the Franklin
team was not up to full strength how
ever, as three of their first team men
were unable to get into the game. These
men arc in shape now and will be able
to play tonight. Little is known of the
strength of the club team,.but Hunting
ton is not expecting an easy game there.
The O. A. C. rooks handed the inter
mediates a hard beating at the first of
the season, but according to the “dope”
received recently the team has im
proved considerably since that time.
“Shy” is not expecting to have easy
sailing in either of the two Portland
games. The •freshmen are looking a lot
better than they did at the first of the
season but the two Portland teams are
also good. The frosli have not been go
ing as well this week as they went last
week end in the O. A. C. rook games, but
Huntington says that they will be in good
shape for the games. He attributes the
let down of this week to the reaction
after the two hard games at Corvallis
last week end.
Guards Strong.
The guard combination has been one
of the strong features of the frosh play
ing all year and Huntington is depending
on it to hold the opposing teams to low
scores. Captain Hadden Rockhey and
Francis Alstock, the forwards, are both
good at dropping the ball through the
hoop. In the second O. A. C. game Rock
hey was going fine, and shot 10 out of
13 free throws. McMillan will start at
center. He is a good man, and is going
better than at the first of the year.
The freshman team has had a fairly
successful season so far. The first game
of the season was with Eugene high
school and the frosh won by a 30 to 12
srbre. The wreek end after, Roseburg
played here and again the frosh won
both games, the first by 24 to 8 and the
second by 27 to 17. Franklin played the
first game of the series here and lost.
Lose to Rooks.
The four game series with the O. A.
C. rook^ was not so successful for the
frosh. The first two games were played
here and the rooks took both of them,
winning by the same score each time. 2
to 9; Last week the frosh’went to Cor
vallis and in the first game were beaten
31 to 21. In the second game they
spilled the dope and won by 30 to 26.
The win wrns due to the hard playing of
the whole team.
The games played on this trip will be
about the last for the frosh this season.
Washington high school of Portland, will
play here next week end, and possibly
the freshmen will make another trip to
Portland later playing a return game
with Washington, and possibly a game
with St. Helens.
Gonzaga University, of Spokane,
Washington, now has a student news
paper. the name of this publication be
ing the Gonzaga Bulletin. The sheet,
which has six pages, is to be published on
♦ he first and fifteenth of each month
during the school year.
The sophomore basketball team at the
t Diversity of Washington won the in
terclass championship last week. The
second year men also won in the .inter*
class wrestling meet.
Event Given by Letter Men Is Changed
from “Jitney” Affair to One
Admission Hop.
"Six-bits a couple” is to be the price
of admission to the all-University dance
to be sponsored by the “Order of the
‘O’ ” at the Armory following the Califor
nia game tonight. The original plan of
a jitney dance with an extra admission
price for everyone was voted down at a
meeting of the organization of varsity
letter-men in favor of the one admission
prife for the whole evening.
"The dance will be run in much the
same manner as an ordinary student
body dance,” said John Houston, secre
tary of the order,” except that the letter
men will provide some unusual features
during the evening.” The decision
reached by the “Order of the ‘O’ ” to
have a one-admission dance was reached
after the organization had sensed some
(..opposition among the students to “jit
ney” dance because of the expense in
“Plenty of dances, plenty of music, and
plenty of fun,” is the way the lettermen
sum up the dance. They still intend to
abide by their decision not to allow “pig
ging” during the basketball game, al
though they arc anxious to have every
one “dated up” after the game for the

Miss ‘Emma Waterman, basketball
coach, is very well pleased with the in
terest shown in basketball this year, and
attributes much of it to the doughnut
games. About 160 girls have signed up
for basketball practice, and only four of
these are taking it for credit. The wo
men’s doughnut basketball cup has been
given by Seth Caraway, the jeweler, and
the series will be played annually in the
future. The interclass contests will be
more interesting this year, since they
will not bj| preliminaries as they have
been in the past. Many good players will
be chosen from the doughnut teams, as
well as from others in the basketba”
classes. The tryouts for class teams

Bonds Between Workers Are
• Stronger Than College
; Friendships.
Head of Four L’s Assembly
Speaker, Declares That
Labor Is Basic.
“There is a stronger, warmer, more
beautiful bond than college friendship;
it is the bond that connects workers.”
said Norman Coleman, president of the
Loyal Legion of Lumbermen and Log
gers, before the student assembly yes
terday, in his address. “Lincoln and
Labor.” The supremacy of labor, the
solidarity of labor, and the mutual bene
fit of capital and labor were the three
points stressed by the speaker who
based his talk on the views and utter
ances of Lincoln concerning labor and
capital. (
Lincoln's peculiar power did not de
pend on the particular circumstances
from which he came, or on the particular
crisis into which he was thrust, but on
the clearness with which he saw things.
Out of his direct contact with real life
said the speaker, Lincoln learned three
things, got three ideas of labor, which
he held through his career.
The first of these ideas was that labor
is prior to capital; capital is only the
fruit of labor. Labor Is superior to
capital, and is deserving of more con
Labor Begins All.
It requires some imagination to sec
this, said Mr. Coleman. When we see
expensive engines, railroads, and all
sorts of machinery being used in logging
camps and elsewhere, we are inclined to
think the work depends on a large in
vestment of capital, but it does not. All
these things depend primarily on labor.
Capital is absolutely paralyzed without
'labor, declared the speaker. Labor is
at the beginning of everything. The ex
pensive machines bought by capital, the
expensive plants operated by capital are
really the products of labor.
“Students,” said Mr. Coleman, “be
cause you buy things with money, don’t
be deceived into thinking that money is
everything. Labor, somewhere, produces
■Much of the stupid blindness of the
present day about the relation of capital
and labor was saved Lincoln, continued
the speaker, because he lived in a time
when he actually saw .things made by
hand. Thus, he learned in the beginning
that labor is the# foundation of every
thing. Today, money is spent with no
thought of the toil behind it, and much
of the critical financial situation comes
from this blindness.
Workers’ Bonn Strongest.
The strongest bond of sympathy, out
side the family, is the one between fel
low workers, declared Mr. Coleman, tak
ing up the second of Lincoln’s ideas of
labor. It is a stronger bond than your
college fraternities exert. Working peo
ple depend on the loyalty of their com
rades, so it is time we stopped talking
about the right to organize and began to

Donald F. Shepard, Scotchman, Already
Getting Lawns and Shrubs
In Shape.
Donald F. Shepard, a gardener of n
lifetime experience, has been appointed
to the new position of head gardener on
the campus. This position was made
necessary because of the iucrease in the
number of buildings on the campus, and
according to W. K. Newell, superintend
ent of properties, it was felt that, a man
who was skilled in the work was needed.
Shepard is already busy getting the
lawns and shrubs in shape and he is
much pleased with the condition of the
campus. Shrubs and vines are to be
planted around the new hall for women,
the junior high school, and the new music
building. As much planting will be done
this spring as the University can afford.
Shepard is now having the moss removed
from the grass. This moss has grown
on the campus because the soil has run
out and it will have to be treated with
lime and fertilizer before it will be in
good condition.
Shepard was born and raised in Scot
land and it was there that he received
his training in landscape gardening.
Later he came to the United States and
did landscape work on large estates in
Minnesota and Massachusetts. He came
to the west a few months ego.
Shepard intends to make Eugene liis
permanent home. He and his wife have
moved into a home near the campus.
With Both Quintets
Ready, Stage Is Set
For Fight For Title
Coach Wight of Calif. Five and Bohler of Ore.
Both Expect Victory; Bears In Best of
Shape for Championship Battles;
Game Tonight at 8:00.
— u •
With Conch Wight of the California quintet and Coach Bohler of the var
sity five expressing themselveR ns confident of their respective teams winning,
and a Pacific coast conference title at stake, all basketball fandom is awaiting
the referee’s whistle which will start tliobattle between the rival teams at the \
Armory tonight. Conch Wight, Manager R. B. Carr and nine members of the
blue and gold basketball squad arrived in the city after the Aggie game Wednes
day night and have been quartered at the Osburn Hotel.
The California team is made up of Captain Symes, Douthit, Coop and
Spence forwards; Larkey and O’Neil, centers; Le Plane, Eggleston and Thomp
son, guards. Coach Wight gave his team a light workout at the Armory yester- 5
day morning and the team has been resting since that. No injuries were suffer
ed by any of the members of the team in the Oregon Aggie games and the men
appear to be in first clnss physical condition. Manager Carr stated that the
team did not even exert themselves in the Aggie game and are prepared to give
Oregon all they have in the two game series here.

Two Wins From California
And One Loss For Stanford
Would Clear Way to Title
♦ Coast Conference Standings. ♦
♦ Team W.
♦ California . .*. ....6
♦ Stanford.6
♦ Oregon.6
♦ Washington.4
♦ W. S. 0. 1
♦ O. A. C.0
Can Oregon win the coast champion
P.C. ♦
.859 ♦
.859 ♦
.750 ♦
.500 ♦
.167 ♦
.000 ♦
The answer to the above question will
be the result of the two games with Cal
ifornia to be played tonight and tomor
row night. By winning both games,
Oregon will be ahead of California in
the conference. The standing would be:
Oregon.8 2 .800
California .6 2 .655
If Oregon should win both games Cal
ifornia would be definitely out of the
running for the championship unless Ore
gon and Stanford lost more games. Ore
gon has two coast conference games yet
to play this season, with Washington
State on February 28 and March 1.
Since the Lemon-Yellow tossers defeated
the Cougars at Pullman on their north
ern trip decisively, it seems likely that,
the possibility of Oregon dropping one
of these games is poor.
Stanford Playing Washington.
On the other hand, Stanford meets
Washington tonight and tomorrow night
at Seattle, where only a short time ago
the Sun Dodgers handed Oregon the onb
two defeats they have yet received this
year. In spite of the fact that Staifford
defeated Washington in the south,
Washington does not admit the super
iority of the Cardinals, and expects to
put up a lively fight and if possible to
win. If Stanford should lose both
games to Washington, the conference
standings of those two teams would be:
Stanford.6 .‘{ .655
Washington.6 4 .600
»If Stanford and AVashington should
divide the two game series, the standings
would be:
Stanford.7 £ .777
AVashington.5 5 .500
Oregon would still l»e in tlie lead. At
the end of the week-end therefore, pro
viding Oregon defeats California in both
games, and Stanford drops^tue game to
the Sun Dodgers, Oregon would be at
the top of the conference heap.
Chancos Are Good.
Once there, there is every possibility
that she will remain on top. The two
games from W. S. C. must be taken.
Those won, Oregon has the coast cham
pionship providing other things work out
as outlined.
Of the conference games which re
main to be played after this week-end;
only the game between California and
Stanford are important. These two
teams play in Palo Alto next week-end.
Should Oregon win both games from Cal
ifornia and Washington take one gume
from the Cardinals, however, the re
sult of the Cnlifornia-Stanford game
will not affect Oregon’s leadership pro
viding Oregon can take the W. S. C.
Oregon’s standing after winning both
games from W. S. C. would be:
Oregon.10 2 S33
One Loss Would Stop Stanford.
Should Stanford win the California
game, she would still be short of tying
Oregon, providing she loses one game to
Washington. Her standing would read
like this:
Stanford .8 2 .800
Of course Stanford would not neces
sarily have to lose to Washington to be
shoved out of the leadership of the con
ference. The California game would
prove equally effective in losing the title
for the Cardinals.
As to California, should she win the
game from Stanford, she would still be in
no position to claim the title. Her score
would be:
California.7 ‘5 .700
By dropping one game out of the four
remaining to be played, Oregon would
probably sacrifice all chances at the coast
title, unless Stnnford and California qIho
dropped additional games. Oregon’s
only chance is bo win both games this
week-end, and the two remaining games
i out of the four she lias yet to play.

Declared To Be Excellent Speaker By
Dean Bovard.
“Dr. Hall is .the finest speaker on his
subject in the United States” is what
Dean Bovard said of Dr. Winfield Scott
Hall, who is to address the men of the
University on “Sex Hygiene” at the
“Y” hut. Friday at 5 p. m.
Dr. Hall has been speaking at all the
colleges in the northwest under the di
rection of the student department of
the Y. M. C. A. He will probably also
speak to several classes in the Univer
sity and to boys in the high schools.
Wight Confident.
Coach Wight is confident that his team
will win in the two games here although
he believes that, the games will be hard
fought throughout. In his opinion if
California plays up to their usual
stride they will be atye to defeat the
Oregon quintet by a big score. Manager
Carr of the Bears, said last night that
California was in the best of shape for
the games and if they lose there will be
no alibis.
The line-up for the invalers as given
out last night will consist of Synges and
Douthit at forwards, Larkey at center,
and Eggleston and Le Hone at guards.
It is possible that Coop may start in
Douthit’s forward, although they will
both be in the game at some period. Cap- '
tain Symes will attempt to convert the
free throws, his Wednesday night rec
ord of converting eight out of as many
attempts proving him to be of almost
equal ability to Durno in this capacity.
Three Are Veterans.
Symes, Eggleston and Larkey are the
only veterans on the Bear squad, Symes
having won his letter for the past two
years and is playing his last season with
the southerners this year. Eggleston
and Larkey each won their first letter
last year, and Douthit and Le Hane were
members of the freshman quintet.
Coach Bohlcr of the Lemon-Yellow
quintet stated last night that he be
lieved that Oregon would beat Califor
nia tonight. In his opinion the Oregon
Aiggies did not play up to their stand
ard in the two games against the Bears,
allowing the California forwards to slip
in for open shots many times during the
evening. According to his version of
the games at Corvallis, which he wit
nessed both nights, the Aggie guards
were completely outwitted by their op
ponents, which will account for the
Bohler Optomistic.
“If we get half as many shots iu the
game tonight as we did in the Oregon
Aggie games, and I believe we will, wc
should have little trouble in winning the
game,” is the way Coach Bohler ex
pressed his forecast of the battle. It
is evident that Oregon really hit their
stride iu the last two games with the
Aggies here and they are expected to
play sterling ball against the visitors
California beat Stanford with their
short passes and smooth teamwork, tak
ing few chances at the basket from long
shots, according to Manager Carr, and
they will depend upon their short passes
passes and smoother team work to take
the game from Oregon tonight.
“We have no individual stars,” Cari |
said last night, “but we expect to excell I
in team work.”
Captain Eddie Durno and Marc Lath-s
am will be in the forward positions at
the start tonight. “Hunk” Latham wil
