Varsity Players Excel in
Passing and Shooting
Throughout Fast Game
Frosh Win Contest From
the Jefferson Aggregation
With Score of 51 to 22
The Oregon Varsity offensive got
started last night and ran up a 62
to 24 score on the North Pacific
Dental college five of Portland in
the first of a two-game series. The
Webfooters outplayed the opposing
team and managed to retain posses
sion of the ball during the greater
part of the game.
The starting combination for Ore
gon, Hobson, Gowans, Latham,
Chapman and Shafer worked well to
gether and formed a fast, smooth
working aggregation. King went in
after about five minutes of play and
the lemon-yellow steam roller swung
into action and had amassed a total
of 35 points at the end of the first
period, holding their opponents to
12 counters.
The dentists showed up well at
times but could not seem to main
tain a pace in the face of the close
checking of the webfooters. Bus
Douglas, former Oregon freshman
star, was pivot man of the visitors
offense. He looped a total of 10
points and played an exceptional
floor game as well.
Varsity Offensive Improved
The Oregon players showed signs
of beginning to round into a form
that it is hoped will make them a
factor in the conference race this
year. The five man defense that
Reinhart is using promises to become
strong although it must be improved
a great deal yet, he said after last
night’s game. Shafer and Chapman
are both going great on the offen
sive and caging baskets regularly.
Shafer made 13 points in the game
■and Chapman 6. “Hunk” Latham
carried off high point honors of the
Evening with a total of 21.
Tomorrow evening the two fives
will meet again on the armory floor
-at 7:15.

Frosh Win Game
The Oregon freshmen went through
their first game last night in good
shape, against the strong .Jefferson
high team of Portland, and walked
away with the long end of a 51 to 22

period. The babes could not get
started and the .Tefferson five held
them nearly even. However, the

Alleged Tradition Breakers
Punished 'by Sayre
Yesterday morning the members j
of the law school walked forth from ;
their homes with bright and shiny1
canes. Discussion on the school con- j
'cerning a distinguishing mode for j
themselves had previously led the i
students in that school to pass re-1
solutions adopting the cane as a con
ventional part of their equipment.
Yesterday at noon the senior men
of the University held an indignation
meeting in front of the library, at
which the action of the law school
members was discussed. The male
members of ’24 held that cane carry
ing was traditionally permissible on
ly to seniorhood, and consequently
the first cane carrying junior from
the law school to appear was hailed
up before the gathering to hear
charges of tradition breaking brought
against him.
That section of the Oregon
“Hello” book pertaining to canes
and seniorhood was read to him, and
a verdict of guilty meted out by
the wearers of the sombrero. A pad
dle figured intensively in the sen
tence passed by Prexy Paul Sayre of
the seniors.
Before the afternoon was over
j'more than one junior found that the
I purchase of a new cane had been a
1 useless expenditure, and more pun
ishment was handed out to the al
leged tradition breakers.
In one instance, a new and shiny
; walking piece, just secured from a
i junior by members of the class of
j ’24, was given to Prof. .T. H. Gil
bert by them—he accepted very gra
ciously the gift from the senior
i class and proved more than adept at
i the art of cane twirling as he walked
1 away.

Plans to Take Part in
Program of Convention
The sixth annual conference of
Oregon newspaper men will be
held at the University under the
auspices of the school of journalism
on Friday and Saturday, February
15 and 16. The meetings this year
will consider professional journal
ism problems, business office and
print shop problems, advertising
problems and business problems.
The program is not yet complete
but will include an address by Dean
Eric W. Allen of the school of
journalism on *Some Experiences
in European Newspaper Offices.”
Heretofore the faculty of the school
of journalism has not been especial
ly active on the conference pro
grams, but in response to a number
of requests from persons interested
in the conference, part of the pro
gram this year will be given by
faculty members. Dean Colin V.
Dyment, of the college of litera
ture, science and the arts, is org
anizing a short course in newspaper
writing in which a number of the
editors of the state will take part.
First Meeting is Friday

Hendricks hall Saturday, at which
students will play an important
part in the program. It has al
ways been the custom for some
woman in the school of journalism
to speak at the editors ’ t banquet,
which takes place Friday evening,
and this is considered one of the
chief drawing cards of the occasion.
It has not yet been decided who
will give this talk.
Printing Problems Saturday
The Ben Franklin club, of Ore
gon, will meet with the conference
and wrill play an important part in
the discussion of print shop prob
lems on Saturday afternoon and
evening. A get together at the
College Side Inn has been planned
by this group for Saturday evening.
The Oregon writers’ conference,
which has been held in conjunction
with the newspaper conference in
the past will be held later in the
spring this year. It is thought,
however, that the two are likely to
be consolidated again in the future.
Among the officials of the org
anizations who are expected to at
tend the conference, are: George P.
Cheney, editor of the Record Cliief
tan, president of the newspaper
conference: Nate Elliott, of Salem,
president of the Ben Franklin club
of Oregon; and Hal E. Hogs, of the
Oregon City Enterprise, president
of the State Editorial association.
Two days and the time for pay
ing registration and laboratory fees
will be here. The week from Jan
uary 21 to 26 has been allotted for
that purpose, and all students should
see that their fees are paid prompt
ly. The penalty imposed on those
that fail to pay their fees within
the prescribed time is quite severe.
One is automatically dropped from
the University. To re-enter it is
necessary to petition the faculty
for reinstatement. If allowed to
re-enter, one has to pay an extra
$3 in addition to the regular fees.

“Aw, go out to the back alley

“Gimme one, I didn’t have any

that floated up from the crowd
that surrounded the Condon club
neophytes on Kincaid field yes
terday morning. The scene re
sembled an animated Alber’s
flapjack flour ad, and attracted a
great mob. One member of the
club was eventually compelled to
assume unwonted dignity and

j crowd, folks, don’t crowd; every
body back to the sidewalk to
give those on the outside a
chance to see.”
The miners were, as one per
son called them, rough-looking
customers. The consensus of
campus opinion was that they
“did their stuff” well. They kept
their garb on all day, giving the
campus a wild west look; a bit of
“local color.” The seven young
miners are Don Johnson, Don
Fraser, Ollie Mercer, Si Muller,
Manuel Souza, Mac McLean, and
Wilbur Godlove.

Means of Raising Funds for Seabeck
is Problem Considered
A discussion group of the Uni
versity women on the Seabeck com
mittee .is meeting once every two
weeks to talk over means of rais
ing funds for the Seabeck confer
ence to be held from June 25 to

Oregon affirmative team, com
posed of Ralph Bailey and Joe
Frazer, were victors in the Eugene
branch of the Oregon-Idaho-British
Columbia debate, held last night.
The question was, “Resolved, that
the United Statos should immedi
ately recognize the present Soviet
government of Russia.”
British Columbia was represented
by Alexander Zoondt and Percy M.
Barr. All the speakers, in the
opinion of judges, put up very good
arguments, and delivered them ef
Frazer, the first speaker for the
affirmative, sketched the conditions
in Russia which had led up to the
presont situation. He attributed
the causes rather to the old regime
of monarchs who ruled the country
with an iron hand, at the same
time keeping the masses in abject
ignorance, and to the war and post
war conditions brought about by
the influence of such men as Ker
ensky in Russian politics.
He traced this development up
to the present time, and declared
that recently there had been a vast
improvement in affairs in Russia,
and that Russia had progressed so
materially that, with the help and
encouragement which the United
States might give her, she would
be able to hold her head up and
take her place among the nations
of the world.
Russia is Improved
The banking and currency sys
tems of the new Russia have, ac
cording to Frazer, been, receiving
favorable comment from bankers
and financiers everywhere. Pro

guidance of laws passed to regulate
it. In fact, the speaker pointed

University men, could you by any

yourself as standing in a huge meat

University women, frivolous or
