Beaver Feeling Runs High,
Sport Scribe Writes
HARD GAME PREDICTED
0. A. C. Squad Perfecting
That interest in tonight’s basket
ball contest at Corvallis is arous
ing intense feeling on the O. A. C.
campus is shown by an article in
vcsterday’s 0. A. C. Barometer, by
‘ Geebee,” well known Beaver sport
The story which is headed,
“Beavers Holding Breath in Antici
pation of Game Friday,” follows:
Beaver fans are holding their
breath these days in anticipation of
the championship game Friday with
Oregon. The game gives promise
of being a thriller, as neither team
has the edge. Oregon says she
would like to see her sister insti
tution get the championship, but
she would do her best to beat them
Hunk Latham Feared
Latham, the big boy who stands
flat-footed and shoots them in from
any place on the floor, will be seen
in action hero. “Hunk” has been
going like a million this year,
marking up most of the Lomon-Yel
hiw’s points. Ho will lravo a hard
man to shake, however, when ho
attempts to elude our own “Moso”
Lyman. It will bo like trying to
givo the gate to an old maid on
leap year evening to give the de
voted “Mose” the slip.
♦ Have Fast Guards
Oregon’s famous offense is likely
to come up against the “Gates of
Troy” when the sticky twins, Stcole
and Stoddard, adopt the two for
wards. The only way the ordinary
forward can get rid of these two is
to givo them the ball. Thou they
leave so fast the other follow thinks
ho dreamed tlioy were thore.
Gill and Ridings aro more or less
of a problem for the sentries posted
to keep them away from the baskot.
Ridings usually gooH around his
men so fast ho thinks ho is in a
crowd. The way the sorrel-topped
dart goes through the opposing de
fense for markers reminds ono of
: ubmarine chaser dodging through
a fleet of mud scows.
Gill Veteran Forward
Skipper “Slat's” has a way of
dropping the ball in from impos
sible angles, giving the other team
heart failure when he carries the
ball within the enemy’s end of the
court. The votoran forward is bo

At the Theatres
For fust moving, gripping drama,!
“The Mail Man,” which played at
the Bex theater last night, exceeds
anything that has been shown at
local show houses recently.
It has been truthfully said that i
Emory Johnson’s gonius becomes
more and more evident in each sue-1
ceeding picture. Some thought that
“The Third Alarm,” another F. B.
O. picture, would be the apex of
his sky rocket1: career. Now he
springs a surprise by bringing out a
production more cyclonic, more
amazing, and more elaborate than
any which he has yet directed.
“The Mail Man” gets its un
usual romance through the undying
love of father and son, evidenced
in the work of Ralph Lewis, as the
mail carrier, and Johnnie Walker,
as the mail' clerk, his son.
The Famous Georgia Minstrels
are due for an appearance at the
Heilig Monday, March 3, bringing
a company of 40 fun makers, musi
cians, singers and dancers and 15
vaudeville acts in a program en
tirely different from anything ever
seen in. a minstrel performance.
There must be something to at
tract people to the theater from the
faet that the Famous Georgia Min
strels have weathered the storms of
over 30 years continuous travel—
there must certainly be merit back
of all this, and, while they have
the regulation band parade, it is a
frequent thing that when the com
pany arrives in town, they find
the seats are all sold in advance.
