Donut Contests
Prove to Be a Bit
Rough at Times
Bela’s, Delts Bite'Dust;
Friendly, Sigma Pi Tau
Are Victorious
Football as it should be played
was admirably portrayed in most of
the donut basketball games played
yesterday afternoon.
All Phi Sigma Kappa needed to
do to win from the Sigma Nu war
riors was to shoot about ten more
baskets, but as they failed to do
this simple thing they were swamp
ed 21 to 3. Bill Dallas hogged the
whole show in this game. Without
seeming to exert himself, Bill flip
ped in 6 field goals.
In spite of the faet that “Swede”
Westergren played a good game on
the sidelines, the Beta Theta Pi
l army turned out to be harmless and
the ,Chi Psi armada sailed over them
by a 14-8 count. These two quin
tets proved quite neighborly in that
no one of especial merit was killed,
although the contest bordered on
the rough at times.
Friendly hall also sprung a sur
prise by taking the Delta Tau Delta
boys in camp. The dormitory men
took the miniature football scrim
mage by a score of 15-11.
To end the afternoon up right,
Sigma Pi Tau and Sigma Alpha Ep
silon put on an exhibition that was
more nearly like basketball than any
of the others. Led by Kenneth Potts,
all-state forward from McLaughlin
High, the SPT’S subdued the Sig
Alph’s 17-9.
Potts showed his heels to the SAE
worthies and collected a total of
10 points during the game.
All losing teams in Monday’s
tourney enter the consolation tour
nament, where they will have an
other chance at the title when the
series draws to a close.

Long-Delayed Dedication Of Deady

Honorable Benjamin B. Beekman Will Preside Over
Ceremony in Deady Lecture Room
In 1876 Deady hall towered lofty
and impressive over a new-born
campus. Raw with the newness that
typified another phase of education
in this land of c*rude, western cul
ture, the first biulding on the Ore
gon campus was nevertheless, re
splendent and impressive in its
height and architecture, its fresh
'paint and winding stairways. It was
truly an imposing structure.

sides and weatherbeaten, paint

Campbell Biographies
Reported Selling Well
f | ■>HE gale of the biographies
of Prince Lucien Campbell
by Dr. Joseph Schafer was go
ing well at the close of yester
day’s session reports Ralph Stal
ey, chairman of the senior com
mittee in charge of the sale.
The book is the work of a
[ man who is both a famous his
torian and a personal friend of
the former president, Dr. Schafer
spent approximately 18 years on
this campus as instructor in the
department of history and dur
ing that time had the privilege
of picking up much material
which has lent a personal charm
to his book. .
Dr. Schafer has always had a
great deal of interest in tlio
University even while he has
been in the' east. In respect to
this interest he has come back
for the inauguration of the Uni
versity’s new president and the
Semi-Centennial celebration.

Support Pledged
New President
State, Students, Faculty,
Colleges Represented
At Banquet
Loyalty and support of faculty,
alumni and students, state and city,
and sister universities and colleges
were pledged to Dr. Arnold Bennett
Hall at the inauguration banquet
held last night, in the Woman’s
About 700 persons, including del
egates, faculty members, visitors
and students were present. The Rev.
William S. Gilbert, member of the
board of regents, was toastmaster.
For the faculty, Dr. Henry D.
Sheldon pledged support to Dr.
Hall. He stressed the University’s
traditions of public service and
freedom, and promised their con
■Similar expressions of fealty were
made by F. H. Young, on behalf of
the alumni association, and by Hugh
Biggs, president of the student body.
Biggs also welcomed the visitors
for the students.
in response to the Rev. Gilbert’s
request for a promise that he would
never dismiss the whole board of
regents, Governor Walter M. Pierce
responded in the affirmative. Wel
coming Dr. Hall on behalf of the
state, he declared that the public
should never find fault with taxa
tion for purposes of educational de
velopment. Oregon, he said, is fav
orable to such development and of
fers opportunity for great expan
sion in the,field of learning.
Mayor E. U. Lee welcomed Dr.
Hall for the citizens of Eugene. Dr.
Carl G. Doney, of Willamette uni
versity, bore the greetings of the
independent colleges. He pointed to
the establishment of better under
standing between schools as a hope
ful omen. The speaker laid stress on
the part played by universities as
“melting pots,” as developers of the
quality of “appreciating man as
Oregon Agricultural College’s co
operation was pledged by President
.W. J. Kerr. He pointed to the mis
sion of the two schools as the com
mon agency for the development of
higher education in the state. He
presented figures to show the in
creasing importance of the state ed
ucational institutions, due to the
phenomenal registration increases
during the past few years.
Stressing the unimportance of
size in the purposes of universities,
President W. W. Campbell of the
University of California, brought
the greetings and promises of co
operation of the sister universities.
Truth, he said, should be the main
teaching of all universities.
President Hall responded with an
expression of gratification at the
cordiality with which he has been
received. He promised that the Uni
versity will join with the Agricul
tural College for the best service to
the state. The common purpose, he
said, should be brought to the fore.
That should largely be the develop
ment of leadership. He emphasized
that relations with the Agricultural
College will be of a most cordial
nature, and that nothing shall be
done to obstruct, in any way, the
development of the sister institu
The University’s first purchase,
made fifty years ago, a clock, was

Debaters Meet
On Wet, Dry Issue
Hempstead, McCroskey,
Defend Prohibition
Over Radio KGW
Does prohibition prohibit! Does
it invade personal liberty! Does it
cause more crime and drunkeness!
Does it improve our social and in
dustrial lives! Can it be enforced!
Does it breed disrespect for all
law! These were some of the is
sues which were fought out in the
second of the international debate
series between Oregon men and a
touring team from Australia as they
met over KGW radio in Portland
Saturday night on the liquor ques
tion. Decision will be made within
five days by written audience bal
lot, sent to KGW.
After meeting two other Oregon
men the night before on the cabinet
form of government question, Syd
ney Heathwood and John Godsal
of the University of Sydney upheld
the affirmative side of the ques
tion: “Kesolved; That this au
dience stands opposed to the pro
hibition of the liquor traffic.”
The Oregon negative consisted of
Jack Hempstead, junior in journal
ism, and Benoit McCroskey, junior
in pre-law.
A huge unseen audience of KGW
fans were kept entertained through
out an hour and thirty minutes of
intensive forensic strife by the new
Oregon plan of intercollegiate de
bate. Humor, wit, fiery questions
and sharp answers served to keep
them all on edge.
Following the presentation of the
Australian constructive case by
Godsal, Hempstead made the fifteen
minute talk for the negative. Mc
Croskey then questioned Godsal,
Heathwood questioned Hempstead
each ten minutes, and then followed
the summary rebuttal speeches of
'ten minutes each by MeG'roskey and
Noel D. McIntosh, third member
of the trio which is making a con
tinental tour of the states, was a
listener Saturday night. The visi
tors are all graduates of the Uni
versity of Sydney and are now in
the business world. Thirty-five or
forty colleges and universities will
be met during the remainder of the
trip, starting with the contest with

“In accepting the high commis
sion of the people of Oregon, I do
so with the spirit of humility and
consecration,’’ > were President
Hall’s opening remarks. ‘ ‘ Here on
the Pacific are mighty problems
of world politics whose wise solu
tion will do much to stabilize the
peace of the woHd, and to deter
mine whether mankind must bow
its head to the rule of right or
might. To us here on the shores
of the Pacific where the west
meets the east; where the new civ
ilization makes its impact upon the
old, comes the supreme challenge
to develop leadership, wisdom, and
vision by which these vital rela
tionships may be directed along
the channels of accommodation, not
aggression; of co-operation and not
conflict. ’ ’
Proceeding Leaders Honored
He named three major tasks of an
educational institution. The first
he said is to give the best possible
education to the sons and daughters
of Oregon. The second is research.
“There is not a branch of learning
that has not been enriched by re
search,” ho said. The third duty
i is in adult education and univer

After paying a tribute to John
I W. Johnson, firs# president of the

i past history we may approach these
problems in the spirit of courage

in the name of these great leaders
who have gone before, I earnestly
invite the co-operation and support
