The Poxes changed around and it was Rich Fox captain of the Vandal horde who posed in the role of star point accumulator, whereas on the preceding evening, his brother, A1 Fox occupied the center of the limelight. The Foxes were ably assisted by Thompson the visitors rangy center and a couple of stalwart guards, Gartin and Telford. Thompson es pecially played a stellar game for Mc Millan’s proteges and looked like the real article as a pivot man. Bohler Changes Mind Often Coach Bohler started his lineup with Andre and Bockhey in the forward berths, Marc Latham at center and Bur net and Beller guards. Latham drew first blood for the locals with a field goal from well behind the foul ring, but Oregon’s lead was destined to be short lived for a minute later the Vandals got under way and kept their score mount ing steadily from then on. With four minutes to go In the half and the score, Idaho 20, Oregon 4 Bohler sent in an entire new team, Veatch and Altstock forwards, Zim merman center, Edlunds and Goar guards. Half time was called with the varsity on the short end of a 28-6 count. Oregon stiffened perceptibly in the second half and scored 13 points against 12 for their opponents, but the lead gained in the first period by the Gem staters was too heavy for them to over come. Running true to form Coach Bohler switched his men again in the second half with six minutes to play, putting in his original lineup. Toward the last of the game Coach Fisher of Multnomah started calling fouls, call ing seven on the visitors in the final period and five on Oregon. In the first half no fouls were called on Idaho while three free shots were given the Van dals. Oregon Outclassed Francis Beller played a'great game last night while he was in the fracas and was tied with Eddie Edlund for high point man both guards annexing two baskets. Both combinations used last night showed class in stretches but were out classed by their more ex perienced opponents and were unable to keep the ball in Oregon territory con sistently.

He is known from coast to coast as “The greatest Elijan of them all.” As an oratorio artist his popularity is shown by the fact that he has appeared over 200 times in “The Messiah.” Dean John J- Landsbury, of the school of music, is an old friend and roommate of Mr. Middleton.

WOMEN’S NEGATIVE TEAM AT SEATTLE; AFFIRMATIVE HERE Prof. Thorpe Coaching Members; Try outs for Contest With O. A. C. Open to Anyone; Date Not Set The women’s Varsity debate team is to meet the University of Washington, on February 17, in their first debate of the year. The team was picked late last week, and consists of Wanda Dag gett and Edna Largent on the Affirma tive team, Elaine Cooper and Lurlinc Coulter upholding the Negative end of the question. The Negative team, according to Pro fessor Thorpe, who is coaching the teams, will go to Seattle to take part in the discussion, while the affirmative team will stay here and meet the Nega tive team of the Washington school The question for debate is “Resolved that the Veterans Compensation bill should be passed.” Professor Thorpe stated that the question is of unusual interest at thiB time on account of the wide discussion of this subject through out the nation. According to Profes sor Thorpe the success of the bill is practically assured at present, and he looks for its early approval by Con gress. The members of the team with the exception of Edna Largent are veteran members of Oregon debating teams. Wanda Daggett and Lurline Coulter having been members for two years previous to this season, and Elaine Cooper has one year of experience to her credit. There is to be a debate held with O. A. C. later on in the season according to Professor Thorpe, and the tryouts for the members of this team will be held soon, probably in the course of a week br two. The members of the team that are debating against Wash ington probably will not try out for this team, said Professor Thorpe, be cause of the fact that it will be too hard for them to handle two questions at once. The tryouts are to be open with any one eligible, and Professor Thorpe ex pressed hopes of a strong turnout for the teams- The question to be debated is the same as that which is being used in the Doughnut series. “Resolved, That the principle of the Open Shop should be adopted in American indus try.” The date of the O. A. C. debates has not been decided on as yet, and accord ing to Professor Thorpe may not be held untill the Spring term.

Eleven men have been enlisted in the cause and will make the rounds between the hours of six and seven. “We are going to try to show' the ; students tonight,” said George Mc Intyre, Oregana manager, “just why | they will want to subscribe for the ( Oregana. We also aro going to empha- | size the fact that more subscriptions | means a reduction in the price of the book.” Another incentive to early sales will be the offer made to each house going one hundred per cent in the drive. A free copy of the Oregana will be given to the organizations turning in sub scriptions from all of their members before the sale closes Saturday night. Two houses have already promised a perfect record. Men to Speak The following men, under the direc tion of McIntyre, will devote their din ner hour to the interests of the 1922 annual tonight: John Anderson, Dan Woods, Virgil Oliver, Paul Patterson, Claude Robinson, John McGregor, Mor gan Staton, Owen Callaway, Jason Mc Cune, Raymond Lawrence, and Alex Brown.

This con test is open to anyone and receipt books may be obtained at the office this afternoon. Prize is Offered “The students living outside the or ganizations,” said McIntyre, “are much harder to reach than those within, and there is a great opportunity for selling on the campus. Therefore wo are of fering the prize to the student who can bring in the most sales from them.” For the further accommodation of outside students, a table will be placed in front of the library from ten to four both Thursday and Friday, and receipts may' be purchased thero. Students aro urged to bring their $2.50, which is the payment necessary' for the reservation of each copy, and to buy their receipts either from the Oregana representative at the table or from those working for the prize in the contest.

PLAYS OF STUDENTS MAY BE PUBLISHED IN BOOK — Subscription Sales and Money Ad- \ van cod by Class to Aid Printing Costs; Ten Pieces Written The publication of a book of plays written by University students is be ing considered by Professor E- 8. Bates and bis class in play writing. “We have sufficient material to put out as good a volume as the one published by the University of Washington which is the only book of its kind 1 know of,” said Professor Bates. The high cost of printing a book pre sents a serious problem, but the ad vancing of money by the class and the selling of subscriptions will, it is thought, make the publication possible. At least ten one-act plays suitable for publication have been written by the class during the past two years. They cover a wide variety of subjects, some being realistic, others fanciful. Three graduate students, Marion Gil strap, Sophus Winthor, and Geraldine Cartmell, have written plays that might be included. Four undergraduates, Irene Stewart, Claire Keeney, Donald McDonald, and Norvell Thompson also have written plays. SURVEY IS AUTHORIZED UNITED STATES OFFICIAL WILL CONDUCT INVESTIGATION Several Faculty Members Re-appointed; Needs of University Told Regents by President At the regular meeting of the Bonn! of Regents held today, a special com mittee to study the resources and needs of the University was authorized, Mem hers appointed were Regents Herbert Gordon, G. E. Woodson, Major W. S. Gilbert, Sam A. Kozer, and 0. C. Colt. The duty of this committee will bo to study the needs of the University in rogard to buildings, equipment, and po sitions, and to report on the adequacy of the present resources Judge J. W. Hamilton, of Roseburg, was re-elected president of the Board, A. 0. Dixon, of Eugene, re-elected vice president, and L. II. Johnson, comp troller of the University, was re-elected secretary. The Executive committee of the board, consisting of tho following members, was re appointed: A. C. Dix on, Mrs. George T. Gerlingor, Vernon IT. Vawter, Charles II. Fisher, and Her bert Gordon. Judge J. W. Hamilton, president of the board, is ex-officio chairman of tho committee. Several re appointments of members of tho faculty working on a one year basis wore made. Tho President was authorized to arrange for a survey of the University, to bo made by an of ficer of the United States Bureau of Education. This officer is expected to be in the state sometime during the next few months. President P- L. Campbell’s report was submitted to the board at this time. The needs of the University were out lined, and an additional meanB of rais ing revenue, other than taxation, was suggested in the form of a campaign for gifts. In speaking of such a campaign, tho President said, “The serious prob lem facing the University is that of first making the best possible use of the income from tho millago tax, and then of inaugurating a campaign to secure additional funds, especially for buildings and equipment, through gifts. It is encouraging to know that last year gifts amounting to $21 f),000 came to the University. Prospects for addi tional gifts are already in sight for the present year. “The building program, according to the report, was pushed very hard dur ing the past year to provide for the increased enrollment. It comprised the completion of the woman’s building, the Commerce building, the two Educa tional buildings, Susan Campbell hall, and the remodeling and equipment of the Woman’s old gymasium building, the open air gym, and the old music building for recitation purposes. The contrast has been lot for the new unite of the Medical School in Portland, and (Continued on page three) FACULTY TEAM WILL PLAY Business Men to be Met on Y. M. C. A.

HERE TO BE MADE BY REGENTS Situation Discussed by Board and Information Will be Gathered for Report PRESIDENT STATES-POLICY System Now Being Questioned by Congress of Nation; Decision is Awaited President Campbell yesterday took up with the board of regents at its regular session here the matter of the present status of the R. O. T. C. Af ter the mooting of the board the Presi dent issued the following statement to the Emerald: To the Editor: At the meeting of the Board of Regents held today, I presented the question raised by the Emerald edi torially and a number of student cor respondents through its columns as to the need anil the desirability of continuing the R. O. T. C. as a de partment in the University. I was requested by the Board to collect all the information available bearing on the government’s plans and wishes in connection with the R. O. T. C. and also regarding its work and status in other state institutions, to be pre sented for consideration at the next mooting of tho Board- The Board desiros a comprehensive view of the entire situation in order that it may servo to the best advantage every intorest involved. Tho University is under a contract of indefinite timo limit with the government to maintain tho R. 0. T. C. as a department on the campus, in consideration of the detail of of ficers, and the assignment of equip ment, together with tho payment of certain sums of money to Juniors and Seniors electing the R. O. T. C. work. Since tho timo units are one year, it is impossible to make any alterations of tho contract in the midst of the session. In the meantime, it is extremely de sirable that tho morale of the Corps may be maintained at the very high est level. Every interest will be served by the work being both well and cheerfully done by everyone con nected with it. The Corps is nlready measuring well up toward the dis tinguished service class, and this goal Bhould be won if possible. What ever the University does ought to be well done. The Commandant and officers are putting their heart into the work and they are deserving of the moHt loyal support by every mem ber of the University. Hince tho place of tho Tt. O. T. C. in tho training systom of tho army is at tho present time being con sidered by the Committees on Mili tary Affairs in Congress, and a wide spread investigation is being made of the whole question of military training in tho colleges, we can well afford to await tho report on thego findings before arriving at an irrevo cable decision in our minds. Tho matter is one of national bearing, involving not only the University of Oregon but some two hundred other institutions- If the Committees of Congress, all men in Civil life, decide either for or against the con tinued maintainance of tho Tt. O. T. C. their conclusions should be given very serious and respectful considera tion by us all. They are in a posi tion to know all tho facts, both na tional and international, more fully than we, and if they think tho welfare of the govorment calls for a con tinuance of military training in the colleges, even for a limited period of time until some important questions of treaties are settled, we may all be serving tho country in the best way by acquiescing in their opinion un til we know certainly that they are wrong. Kven if a littlo personal sacrifice either of time or of opinion is in volved, it is much best to take the safe course of supporting the govern ment until we are absolutely sure that no need exists of doing so. The whole matter is sure to be given in the long run the fullest considera tion o the sanest grounds. P. L. CAMPBELL 200 ENROLLED AT WHITMAN Whitman is nearing an enrollment of 200 men, which according to the rules of the Pacific Northwest Conference, will bar freshmen from taking part in intercollegiate athletics.
