Only 22 Men Turn Out;
Number To Be Chosen
May be Cut from 16 to 12
^ -
Subject Of Intervention Of
World In Political Affairs
Of China, Will Be Argued
* -
Varsity men debate aspirants
compete today for the 1925-26 Uni
versity squad which will debate
throughout the year. Unless there
are more men trying out at the
preliminary than have signed up
at the public speaking office, only
twelve men instead of sixteen will
be chosen from those appearing on
the platform at Villard hall, an
nounced J. Stanley Gray Thurs
day. So far, only twenty-two men
have definitely signed.
Decisions of the fr.eshmen men’s
tryouts held last night will be
posted this afternoon on the bulle
tin board in the Sociology build
ing.* Six of the approximately
twenty men who competed last
night, will be selected by the for
ensic coaches, who «,ct as judges
during all debate Itryouts.
Strict Time Iiimit Set
Varsity tryouts start at four
o’clock this afternoon and continue
until six. Starting again at, seven
ojclock, they will continue until
every man has finished. Construc
tive arguments are limited ./to five
minutes and three minutes will be
•used for rebuttal. Debates between
tw)o individual men will be the
method of tryouts. Each will re
fute the arguments made by' the
other. Delivery, composition, and
rebuttal will be taken into account
by the judges who are the same as
those in the freshmSn preliminaries
last night, J. Stanley Gray, Robert
D. Horn, and Walter Snyder.
The question is: “Resolved, that
nation’s of the world should discon
tinue policy of intervention in
China’s political affairs.” ThiSs
question is one of the most vital
of world problems today, and one
in which people on the western
coast are interested due to their
proximit; to the unsettled state of
China. Agitation on the question
of political interference is very no
ticeable among. Chinese students.
Strikes, boycotts and shooting
frays, have added to the generally
unsettled conditions in China dur
ing the past few months.
Former Stars Not to Try
Ralph Bailey, and Herschel
Brown, seniors and former varsity
debaters have not signified their
intention of going out for debate
this year due to too much other
work! Sol Abramson, junior, who
was also a member of the debate
team last year is not going to de
bate this year for Oregon since he
is managing editor of the Emerald
and finds it impossible to find
Benoit McCroskey will debate
again this year. As a freshman in
1924-25, he participated in varsity
debates against O. A. C. and Uni
versity of Washington, besides win
ning the state peace oratorical con
test at Newberg for the Univer
sity. He is now president of the
Sophomore class.

Aspirants Meet In Men’s
Gym at 4 p. m; Oregon
Prospects Are Dimmed
Okerberg May Not Return;
Gowans, Only Veteran Of
Team, Lost by Graduation
By Dick Godfrey
All aspirants for the varsity
basketball team turnout for prac
tice tonight.
This call was issued by Coach
“Billy” Reinhart yesterday as he
boarded the train with the foot
ball team for Stanford.
The first basketball practice will
be held in the men’s gymnasium
this afternoow commencing prompt
ly at 4 o’cmo_c, the coach stated,
with the varsity lettermen in
Reinhart Not to be Hero
Coach Reinhart will not be pres
ent for this practice, buit will be
on hand next week to start the
squad on its annual conditioning
Oregon’s prospects this year
were slightly dimmed by the an
nouncement that “Okie” Okerberg,
all-coast center last year, may not
return in time to play this sea
son. “Okie” was counted on to
take his old place at center. How
ever, several other men of ability,
but lacking in experience will be
on hand to take over the work if
the veteran is not on hand.
If “Okie” returns, the varsity
will start the basketball season
with virtually a veteran team.
{ This team, built last year by Coach
Reinhart, tied the Oregon Aggies
for coast honors and lost by one
point in the final play-«ff flame.
Now with the prospects in view
| the Oregon team should come even
."{loser to the coveted colnferjence
title. “Swede” Westergren, all
coast guard; “Hobby” Hobson, two
year veteran; “Chuck” Jost, the
man who found himself in the Ag

and pohsibly Okerberg, combined.
with 25 or 30 other prospects,

Hard Training Starts
However, this versatile coach
seems to think that the teams will
have to be worked hard, long and
consistently in order to reach the
peak it displayed last season.
So, starting this afternoon the
aspirants will take the maple floor
three times a week. During this
i time -fundamentals, the coach’s
long suit, will be given the play
ers to learn.
Reinhart is a believer in start
ing the men early and giving them
a background from which to work,
ho states.
i Work from today, until the
j Christmas holiday season will deal
I mostly with pivoting, running, pass
ing, shooting, and other phases of
inside knowledge of basketball.
All aspirants will have a chance
to show their ability on the court
as the team will not be formulated
until the return from Christmas
festivities. j
Good Turnout Expected
Several likely looking candi
dates to take the place of Russ

j uation, will turnout, it is learned.
I Gowan’s clever floorwork and abil
ity to sink the ball for counters
will be missed during the early sea

Sophomore Men
Take Sport Jacket
As Official Garb
All hail to the class of ’28!
After a lengthy and spirited dis
cussion last night the sophomore
men finally decided that since
they considered themselves as
representing one of the foremost
classes on the campus the most
practical and undoubtedly the
most distinguishing form of ap
parel they could possibly choose
would be a sweat shirt jacket.
Since the sophomores are above
all things, conservative, it is
thought best that this particular
species of masculine garb is to be
of a modest, medium shade of
blue. Further developments of
the matter indicate that there
will be two pockets which have
probably been added for effect,
the left of which will bear a yel
low felt ’28. The jackets will
button down the front.
Orders will be taken the first
of next week in order that the
men may be able to wear them
during Homecoming.
All Upper-Class Women Are
Invited to Attend
Tonight is the time set for the
famous “Get Wise Party” which
the freshman girls have been hear
ing about for so long. It will be

Woody and Wilson Punters
One big worry of the coach in
yesterday’s workout was punting.
This is one of the weakest parts
of the team, with the best booter
not making more than thirty-five
yards. In Woody and Wilson, quar
terbacks, Leslie, has two fairly
good punters. In last night’s prac
tice both were getting off some
good punte. Martin, tackle, has
also been given much punting prac
tice. This tall rangy linesman gets
off some nice boots.
The game against the Universtiy
of Washington yearlings, Saturday
will be Coach “Spike” Leslie’s first
game in his present position as
head freshman coach. “Spike” is
a former Oregon football man, hav
ing played on the team that met

football in 1916 and returned to
his alma mater in 1919 for three
years at tackle position.
