British Columbia and Idaho
Complete Triangle
The next debate on the varsity’s
program for this year will be the tri
angular meet to be held with the
universities of Idaho and British
Columbia, Friday of next week. The
question at issue will be: “Besolv
ed, that the United States should
immediately recognize the present
Soviet government of Russia.
Since the use of this question for
the Oregon-O. A. C.-Reed triangle
last term, Oregon, by virtue of hav
ing won both her contests and con
sequently the state championship,
has been receiving countless requests
from high school debating leagues
for briefs and material on the sub
ject, which is causing a great deal
of discussion all over the country, es
pecially since the president’s re
cent speech on the matter in con
Oregon will be represented in the
forthcoming triange by the same men
who debated against O. A. C. and
Reed. They are Ralph Bailey and
Joe Frazer, who will constitute the
affirmative, meeting the University
of British Columbia negative here
on the campus; and Marion Dickey
and Walter Malcolm who will travel
to Moscow, Idaho, to debate the
Idaho affirmative.
After next week’s meet, the Ore
gon men will have two others—one
with the University of Washington
qnd Stanford University, March 6,
and one with the University of Cali
fornia. The date of this last con
test has not been definitely decided
upon, as the tentative date, March
13, was too near final examinations
to be feasible. A squad of 15 or 16
men is now at work on the world
court question, which will be used
in these debates. From this working
scmad, the teams will later be
The first women’s debate of the
season will be with O. A. C. and
Willamette University, February 15.

nounced at a recent faculty meet
ing. It was decided that during
the last week of the term no in
structor should give any heavier
test than he had given in the heav
iest week in the semester.
Santa Claus Makes Merry
for Indianapolis Delegates
t _
A real, live Santa Claus, passing
out gifts from a dazzling Christmas
tree ajid his well-filled bag, made
Christmas day a merry one for the
delegates of the northwest to the
Indianapolis convention.
Christmas carols were sung, and
speeches with the Christmas spirit
were given in the day coach used
for meetings, that accompanied the
train which carried the delegates
east. That, evening the delegates,
guests of the railroad company,
gathered in the dining ear where
each school put on a stunt of some
kind, and helped to enjoy the good
eats given them. Mary Donaldson
of the University of Oregon was
chosen to cut the cake.
On the return trip the special ;
train was held over at Chicago for
12 hours in order to permit the dele
gates to “see” the mid-west metro
polis. The art institution, museum,
zoo, stockyards, and Marshall
Fields store were visited by most
of the delegates.
An amusing diversion on the
journey -west was a couflt trial in
which five Oregon and Washington
men were put on trial for missing
the special train at Minneapolis,
thus causing nearly an hour’s de
lay about ten miles west of the
city, while the missing boy3 were
speeding after the special in a taxi.
They were all found guilty and
sentenced to be “hothanded.” Thej
punishment was meted out in true |
western fashion with no leniency j
Colton Here to Organize
Friendship Drive
“The Present Trend in Russia’’
will be the subject of E. T. Colton
who is to address the student assem
bly Thursday. Mr. Colton has re
cently returned from a two year’s
stay in Russia where he organized
the Student Friendship Fund work,
working in conjunction with the
American Relief association organ
ized by Herbert Hoover.
Mr. Colton is a member of the in
ternational committee of the Young
Men’s Christian association and is a
nationally known person. At pre
sent he is being sent out by the
American Student Friendship Fund
committee to promote and to inform
the country of the work of this or
Henry W. Davis, local Y. M. C. A.
secretary, in speaking of Mr. Col
ton, said that he was about the
best qualified of any one in the
United States to present the condi
tions in Russia because of his work
in that country. According to Mr.
Davis, Colton is a very good speak
er, well liked by students. Mr. Davis
heard him speak at the University of
The subject on which Mr. Colton
is to speak is one very interesting
today because of the prominence that
Russia has been receiving of late.
There has been much newspaper com
ment as to whether Russia should be
recognized by the United States.
Mr. Colton’s close association with
Russian conditions makes him pecu
liarly fitted to discuss the trend in
Mr. Colton, while on the campus,
will aid in organizing the work of
preparing a drive* to raise money for
the American Friendship Fund. The
money of this organization is de
voted to helping students who have
suffered' during the war in Russia
and other European countries.

Indianapolis is Scene of
International Convention
of Student Volunteers
Comparison Made Between
Serious-minded Foreigner
and American Students
We have met to consider what
is wrong with the world and why,”
said Dr. Walter Judd, student chair
man of the ninth international stu
dent volunteer convention, held at
Indianapolis December 28 to Janu
ary 1, as he opened the five-dav
session and sounded the keynote of
that vast gathering of more than
six thousand delegates from every
section of the United States and
/Race prejudice, countless wars,
false leadership, unfair economic
and social conditions and misunder
standing and lack of sympathy on
the part of nations were considered
as some of the most outstanding ills
of the world. The “why” of these
ills was found to center around the
failure of man to live a true
Christian life and to practice what
he believes to be the fundamental
principles of the brotherhood of
College Students Scored
The frivolity, provincilaism, and
superficiality of the average Ameri
can college student was scored re
peatedly by speakers, both domestic
and foreign, as they compared these
students with the serious-minded
foreign youth. Delegates at the
convention were urged to carry
back to their respective institutions
as best they could, a vision of a
broader conception of the world in
which they live, its needs and how
the youth of America can and ought
to contribute to a better racial, so
cial and economic and international
Dr. John R. Mott, in his lecture
on “Committment of Life,” char
acterized this generation as alert,
critical, full of inquiry, dissatisfied
with present conditions, and ready
to go to extremes.
“How can we understand the
teachings of Jesus unless we have
some one to guide us I” is the cry
that camo from several of the
foreign speakers.
Everyone Must Contribute
The United States and Canada
can and must contribute, not only
to material progress, but also to a
new international order ‘that can
not afford such a wasteful process
as war, said Hon. Newton W.

Program to Include Group of French
And English Ballads and
Bussian Selection
A vocal concert, given by Fried
erike Schilke, a prominent student
of the school of music, will take
place in the alumni hall of the Wo
man’s building at 8:150 Thursday
evening, January 10. Miss Schilke
has been for two years a member
of the Women’s Glee club and the
University vesper choir.
Her program includes Tschais
kowski’s aria, “Farewell to the
Forests,” from the opera Jeanne
D'Arc, which is considered by
critics to be one of the Itussian’s
most moving compositions. There
is also a groupe of mixed English
songs and a number of French Bal
lads. These early French songs
were brought from France last
summer by Miss Henriette Gouy,
instructor in the romance language
department and a native of France.
During the Christmas holidays
Miss Schilke gave a concert in La
Grande which,. according to all re
ports, was very well received there.
She possesses a lyric soprano voice
and her instructors say that she is
among the most talented students
of the school of music and that in
her recital Miss Schilke is offering
something very worth while to the
music lovers of the campus.

The vaudeville is given every year,

that the artistic and dramatic work
for the affair should bo under tlio
supervision of someone whoso special

position of director.
The committees who will work un

Game With Badgers Billed
For Thursday Evening at
7:15 p. m. in the Armory
Ex-freshmen Players Look
Promising; Stoddard and
King to Sub at Forward
Varsity basketball fans will get
their first opportunity to see the
Webfoot five in action Thursday
evening when they tangle with the
Pacific Badgers on the armory
floor. The contest will start at
7:15, as will all week-day games
during the coming conference sea
This will bo the second appear
ance of the varsity five. In the
barnstorming game the Multnomah
club took the varsity moasure. The
Pacific aggregation is an unknown
quantity, but it is almost a sure bet
that they will bring a quintet down
here which will give the varsity
a stiff run or tlfo top count.
Squad Well Drilled
Coach Reinhart has been drilling»
the squad in some flashy team play
and the spectators will get a chance
to see the result Thursday. Against
the club men the Webfoot basket
eers exhibited some good team
work, but their shooting was a
trifle awry.
With six lettermen and a number
of promising ex-freshmen, Reinhart
has a nice looking reception com
mittee to greet the Pacific dele
gates Thursday night. Much of the
success of the Webfoot five in-the
coming conference race depends on
Hunk Latham. Hunk is playing
his last year of basketball in an
Oregon uniform. Last year he was
selected on the mythical quintet and
should have a great finishing year.
Playing center, he is the keystone
of the Oregon offense and hiB play
ing may determine the success of
the Oregon five.
Guards Look Good
Shafer and Chapman, two awfully
good little men who loom awully big
to the opposing forwards, will no
doubt take care of the guard berths
at the start of tho struggle. Both
are good floor men and have wicked
shooting eyes when near the basket.
Gowans and Rockhey will prob
ably occupy the forward berths,
with Alstock and either King or
Stpddanl ready for duty. Both the
latter are ex-freshman cracks with
good playing records behind them,
and it is possible that they will see
q deal of service in varsity suits
before the season closes. Hobson is
another former freshman who will
make the regulars hump to keep
him off the team.
Other Games Scheduled
Besides these men, Reinhart has
some good material in Parley, Hard
ing, Gillenwaters, Gunther, Jordan
and Tuck. All are strong possibili
ties for chances in the contest
Thursday night. This is the first of
four pre-season contests the varsity
has billed. Two are with Pacific
and a like number with Willamette.
First Visit to Fifth Avenue
Thrilling, Says Professor
“An interesting convention and a
fine trip” is the report of George
Turnbull, professor of journalism, on
his return from New York and Chi
cago. Tn Chicago he attended as
Oregon’s representative, the annual
convention of the American Associa
tion of Teachers of Journalism and
the Association of American Schools
and Departments of Journalism. Of
the last named association Dean
Kric W. Allen has been president
during the past year.
“You wouldn’t want me to go over
all the old stuff regarding what a
splendid trip T had; but if this is
going into the paper you can’t make
it too strong that one’s first visit to
New York gives him a thrill,” he
said. “T spent a few hours roam
ing around the east sido under the
guidance of Jack Bechdolt, free
lance and short-story writer; wish it
could have been days. And one
fairly has to tear one’s self away
from the Woolvvorth tower, where
from a vantage point 800 feet above
the world’s largest city, there un
folds a panorama probably without
a parallel in the world. And Fifth
Avenue and the Great White Way,
Greenwich Village, the Winter Gar
den, and some fino Italian restau
rants, and—oh yes— the Metropoli
tan art museum, Grant’s tomb, Co
lumbia University, Riverside drive
along the Hudson. You must go some
time, and stay longer, and see more
than I did.”
At the Chicago conventions Mr.
Turnbull was the only Pacific Coast
representative present. He reports
that Oregon’s sehool of journalism
is apparently regarded by journalism
