With Pacific out of the way, Ore
gon will entertain the Willamette
Bearcats tonight at 8:00 on the
Armory maple. Coach Reinhart and
his warriors gave the fans some
thing to think about Thursday
night when they held the Forest
Grove men to three field baskets
and eight points from the foul line.
Reinhart’s five-man phalanx de
fense kept the Pacific men out
of the danger region, and a Pacific
shot at the hoop was a rare thing.
What Willamette has is unknown,
but their teams of the past few
years have given the varsity stiff
competition, especially in 1920 when
Hunk Latham slipped the winning
counter through the hoop a frac
tion of a second ahead of the gun.
Hard Game Expected
Neither team will be in top sea
son shape for the go tonight, but
the performance of the varsity on
Thursday night is enough evidence
to prove that they will be there
prepared to give the Capital city
men a good run for top honors on
the score sheet.
The Oregon teamwork against the
Badgers was wonderful, the short
snappy passing and sure pivoting
kept the opponents at sea most of
the time. The Webfoot guard com
bination worked fine. Chapman and
Shafer make an excellent team,
either man able to stop an attack
and also able to slip down the floor
now and then and ring the bell for
two counters.
Latham Starts Well
Latham was humping along at
his old time clip Thursday, but his
shooting wasn’t up to the standard
of other years. He played the floor
nice and' fed his forwards at every
opportunity. The old eye will come
around soon and then the other con
ference hoopers will have to go
hard to stop him scoring.
Gowans and Hobson make a nice
forward combination. Hobson might
have been a trifle scared at the
start, but he soon settled and sue- ■
ceeded in hooping the ball five
times. He was high point man and
played a great checking and floor
game. Gowans is coming around ^
into shape and a few more games 1
will put him on edge. King played
some flashy basketball while he
was in and will be heard from be
fore long.

Mrs. Jewett Gives Second
Cash Qsnation
Another incentive for participa
tion in oratory at Oregon has been
added in the form of a cash dona
tion of $100 recently made to the
University in memory of W. F. j
Jewett. The monejt is to be used '
as a stimulus toward proficiency j
and interest in oratory.
The exact nature of the distribu
tion of the' fund among the vari
ous oratorical activities of the j
campus has not as yet been definite-;
ly decided upon, but it is planned j
to expend it for excellence shown in 1
tryouts for oratorical contests, and
for exceptionally good work in the I
public speaking departments, in j
such courses as extempore speaking
and pre-legal English.
The gift is the second from the
same source, Mrs. Jewett having
contributed $50 for this purposo
last year.
The contests scheduled for this
year, and the awards for each arV:
The state old line contest, in which
there are seven participants, Ore- ;

and Linfield College and in which the
winner receives a bronze statuette :
of Lincoln; the Northwest oratori
cal contest, between the Urfversi- j
ties of Oregon, Washington and I
Idaho, with a cash award of $50; j
the state peace contest with its I
prizes of $50 and $100; and lastly ,

Spring Track Prospects
Brightened by Return
of Well Known Athlete
Squad Shows Weakness in
Dash and Hurdle Events;
Winter Work is Started
Varsity track prospects for the
coming season took a jump sky
ward yesterday when it became
known that Art Tuck, a contender
in the Olympic games in 1920 at
Antwerp, and a former coast record
holder in the javelin and point
winner in the weights for Oregon,
had registered in the University,
after an absence of two years.
Tuck, who has two more years of
varsity competition at Oregon, has
been working in eastern Oregon
since leaving school. He turned out
for the first time yesterday on Hay
ward field and heaved the spear
180 feet, which indicates that it
will "'not take him long to round
into an even greater form than be
! fore.
Two Named for Olympics
j Art came to Oregon in his high
school track days, in 1918, and re
presented his school, Redmond, in
jthe state track meet here. He was
! the only entry from there and yet
1 he, single-handed, copped enough
j points to give his school the state
! championship. He won firsts in the
| javelin, shotput, discus, and in sev
; eral of the sprints. From that day
! to this the name of Tuck has ranked
|among the premier track men of
the time.
Tuck states that it is his inten
tion to train for the Olympic games
[this year, with the hopes of being
recommenced to go to the Olympic
tryouts in Boston for the American
team, in June. This makes it prob
able that the Oregon team will
have two athletes at least of the
Olympic caliber, as Ralph Spearow,
vaulter and broad jumper, has been
mentioned as a candidate for the
American Olympic team by many.
Bill Hayward has already been
tentatively named as one of the
coaches for the American athletes
Tryouts at Boston
There will be no district tryouts
this year for the American team,
but candidates will be picked by
local representatives at the various
meets over the country to go to Bos
ton and meet in a final tryout.
Those who are successful will then
go to Paris and begin training for
the international competition.
Many good men have been lost to
Oregon this year by their dropping
out of school and the return of Tuck
will help to bolster up a weakened
squad. From last year’s compara
tively strong freshmen aggregation
Bill has very few point winners
coming up. Kelsey was a big loss
to the squad for the sprints and
hurdles were seriously lacking in
material this year. Carlburg, an
other of the frosh winners of last
season is not in school.
Winter Practice Begins
Hayward has commenced winter
practice this week and has quite a
number of men out, although the
amount of material is doubtful. He
has the weight men working out in
the gym, while runners are practic
ing nightly on Hayward Sell. Bill
has the men turning out in small
groups, however, so that he may
give them as much personal* in
struction as possible. “I will make
my team from the men who are

Seniors’ Last
Bust Is Formal
Dancing Party
It s Leap Year — Girls
To Choose Names
The senior class, for its last of
ficial “bust” is planning some
thing new and novel in class par
ties, something compatible with
•the dignity of upperclassmen soon
to be thrust out into the cold
world of affairs. The seniors are,
to make it short, planning a for
mal dancing party.
Friday the eighteenth is the day
and the date, and it’s to be at the
Osborn hotel. The girls, in view
the fact that it is leap year, are
to be given the golden opportunity
of choosing their partners for the
evening. Selections are to be made
between now and Wednesday, and
the names of the men they have
asked are to be written on a slip
of paper and put in a box in the
library, just to_ the left of the
reference room entrance.
All names must be in by Wed
nesday, says tlie committee.
Practices Show Rivalry for
Class Teams
Heads of women’s class basket
ball teams have been appointed and
regular practices have begun, pre
paratory to the inter-class games,
which will start January 25. The
leaders are Lynetta Quinlan, for
the seniors; Muriel Paul, for the
juniors; Alda Knips, for the sopho
mores, and May Fan Vurpillat, for
the freshmen. Their duty is to get
the girls out to practice.
The juniors, so far, have the
largest turnout, with 20 girls
working for positions on the first
and second teams. The freshmen
come second with 17 aspirants. The
sophomores have 13 out and the
seniors only eight. It is expected
that there will be keen competi
tion for positions on all the teams,
each class, except the seniors, plan
ning to have two teams.
One day each week is assigned to
a class for work in the indoor gym,
where coaching is given the girls.
Each class holds another meeting
once a week in the outdoor gym
for practicing the different posi
A short game is to be played
Saturday morning at 11:10 for the
benefit of the visiting high school
delegates. The teams will be made
up of six juniors and six seniors.
Library Volumes Total 130,470 for
1923; Growth is 7,625 Over
Record for 1922
Comparative statistics have just
been made by the library between j
1922 and 1923 in regard to books |
and circulation. A record taken,
last month showed a total of 130,- i
170 books belonging to the library j
while for 1922 there were only
122,845. j
New books purchased from de- ;
partmental fees were 1,332 for j
L922 and 2,007 for last year. Not 1
so many were added from library
5nes this year as last, however, as :
records indicated 237 new additions
for 1922 and 190 for 1923. Law I
books purchased number 199 for
1922 and 849 for 1923. Miscellaneous
gifts were 1,457 in 1922, but last
year did not fare so well, with
only 538.
Books circulated for home use
numbered 52,450 for 1922 and 54,-'
383 last year. From stacks for 1
reading room purposes 7,683 and
7,929 were issued, respectively. Quite !
an increase was made in reserve ,
book circulation from 1922 to 1923,
the records being 180,513, and for
last year, 299,948. At the school
of business administration at the
reserve department, 16,049 volumes;
were given out in 1922 and 35,955 !
in 1923.

I Outlined in Conference
By Kathrine Kressman
Advice upon every branch of jour
nalistic and managerial work was
given the visiting high school dele
gates in the two meetings of mana
gers and editors held yesterday. The
number of delegates was far greater
than the committee had foreseen and
the meeting of the afternoon had to
be changed from the editorial hall
of the Journalism building to the au
ditorium of the campus high school.
Among the outside speakers who
addressed the conference was Fred
Boalt, editor of the Portland News,
who characterized human interest
stories as the soul of a paper. Mr.
Boalt explained the importance of
feature writing from the interest
point of view. Hal E. Hoss, of the
Orogon City F b-prisc, spoke brief
ly on adverth in annuals, declar
ing that he looked forward to the
time when year books might be put
out without advertising.
At the morning session John Piper,
associate editor of the Oregon Daily
Emerald, welcomed the delegates
with a survey of the field of high
school publications and former con
ferences. He attributed the large
numbers attending the conference to
an increasing interest in the work
done rather than the efforts of the
Dean Eric Allen of the University
school of journalism spoke of the
high function that the high school
paper can fill among the students.

Knighthood is not all dead. Some
of the chivalry displayed by the
Oregon Knights in tugging about a
suitcase is just as picturesque as
that of their illustrious forerunners 1
of the middle ages.
What would a conference bo, any
way, without tags? One thing no- i
ticeable, however, is the absence of
discrimination. Last year the dele- <
gates wero labeled, “Editor,” “Presi
dent,” “Manager,” “Secretary,” ,
etc., according to the office they
held. This year one tag uniform in
size, color, and wording was given
all delegates.
This does away with the rainbow
effect that the tags produced on the 1
campus last year. Then there were ,
red, white, green and yellow tags; 1
now only the yellow ones are in
evidence. !,

Student Body Organization
Held Important Factor
in Unifying Activities
Women’s Field of Interest
Broadened by Education
Say Conference Speakers
By Mary Clerin
Delegates from 80 high schools
all over the state were gathered in
Villard hall yesterday for the open
ing of the annual high school con
ference. Three hundred and fifty
high school students representing
student body officers, editors and
managers of school publications,
and officers of girls’ leagues met
in joint session.
President Campbell gave th^
welcome to the delegates telling
them what could be accomplished
by this conference. He likened edu
cation to the right arm of the state,
saying that these conferences helped
the advancement of education.
Claude Bobinson outlined the aims
of the conference as means for dis
cussing high school problems and
arriving at a solution and as an
insipration for higher education.
Student Body Discussed
Student body presidents and of
ficers discussed tho student body
as a school organization and in re
lation to the community. Girls'
league delegates held open forum
on questions pertaining to their
C. A. Howard, superintendent of
schools1 in Marshfield, pointed out
that tho value of a student body
organization in high school lay in
its powior of unifying all activities
and in developing school spirit.
Delegates agreed that a system of
requisitions and a yearly budget
wero a good solution for financial
difficulties arising from loose check
ing on spending of school funds.
School Great Enterprise
In tho afternoon session Super
intendent Howard said: “The school
is the community’s biggest enter
prise. Tlie greatest help we can
be to our community is to help
carry on our school well.” Another
way in which the student body can
cooperate with the community,
continued Mr. Howard, is to work
in conjunction on drives and cam
Junior chambers of commerce
were recommended by those schools
that had them as a means of ob
taining the support of the towns
people. Lester Lemon, of Corvallis
high school said that it was through

that they got the support of the
Corvallis chamber of commerce for
their east and west football games.
