Shot Putters Work Hard
The varsity shot putters are work
ing hard trying to develop a point
winning man in that event. Vic
Wetzel and Ed Moore have had var
sity experience. Moore was one of
the Webfoot weight heavers in 1925
but was not in school last year.
Wetzel has been on the team for the
past two seasons.
Dobie Sanderson, from last year’s
frosh, is showing good form in both
the discus and shot and will give
She veterans some keen competition.
George Stager, another member of
the yearling squad last year, is
a rounding into form and Bill Hay
ward thinks that he may prove to
be a surprise.
Sprinters to Vie
The sprinters will have a big
time today with ten men entered
Jn the varsity affair and thirteen
frosh ready to line up for the 75
and 150 -yard dashes.
Ed Crawley, pole vaulter and let
terman, will probably have things
pretty much his own way in his
event, but Allen Bracher, a transfer
from O. A. C., is rated as being a
good high flyer.

Varsity Diver Injures
Heel While Practicing
Lloyd Byerly, varsity diver,
pulled a tendon loose in his left
heel last evening while trying a
back dive. He will be operated on
this morning. This will probably
keep him out of the swimming con
tests for the rest of the season.
Byerly is a senior in the school
of business administration, and a
member of Kappa Sigma.
Hugo Bezdek9 Penn State’s Mentor,
Was Billy Reinhart’s First Ancestor
Oregon’s Twine-Swishers of 1912 Ended Season
In Triple Tie; Dean Walker on Squad
Oregon's first official basketball
coach was Hugo Bezdek, who came
here in the fall of 1906 for a
year's stay. Bezdek gained his
knowledge of the hoop game as a
member of the Chicago Y. M. C. A.
team. The season athletic club was
defeated twice and the Ashland
Athletic club once. Two games were
dropped to the Oregon Aggie five.
Members of this early hoop squad
included Captain Donald Stevenson,
center; Ramp, Moore, Johnson, and
Nelson,t forwards; and Penland,
Strong and Charmon, guards.
With the completion and dedica
tion of the present men’s gymna
sium in February, 1910, basketball
at Oregon received impetus. Tfhe
game had been discontinued during
the two previous years. The 1910
season was started late 'by the Ore
gon five due to the tardy comple
tion of the gymnasium. By the
time the lemon-yellow lioopsters
were in condition the other teams
were finishing their seasons. The
intercollegiate game was taken up
for the first • time this year and
was new to all the players. Other
teams of the northwest had been
( playing it for two years,
i With William Hayward, track
! mentor, at the helm, several late
games were played. The team won
from Idaho, which had overwhelm
ingly defeated the University of
Washington. A heart breaking eon
Dr. H. Crosland
To Talk Monday
To Law Students
Second Lecture on Crime
Detection to be Given
Dr. Harold B. Crosland, of the
psychology department, will speak
at 10 o’clock on Monday and on
Wednesday before Dean Hale’s law
students in the class of “The Ad
ministration of Justice.” Monday
his subject will be “Methods of
Detecting and Exhibiting Guilty
Knowledge in Persons Suspected of
Crime.” His topic for Wednesday
is “Methods of Studying Handwrit
ing to Detect Forgery, and the
Authorship of Forged Documents.”
He has proven one of the methods
to be of worth in at least four prac
tical cases: two of stealing, one of
cheating and the other an experi
mentally instituted “crime.” He is
; soon to publish an article in rela
I tion to these subjects fin “The Jour
jnal of Applied Psychology.”
Because of his interest and ex
perience in such work he has been
asked to join an organization of
experts along different lines, whose
purpose is to render service in crim
inal cases in court. This organiza
tion is unique and the members
claim the precedent as being the
very first. They are certain that
the magazine which they contem
plate publishing is the first of its
kind in the world.
The organization is including
every possible line of expert work:
handwriting, toxicology, finger
prints, ballistics, typewriting, etc.,
and now they wish to include the
work of psychologists and to delve
into the search of the sub-conscious
mind to apprehend criminals. They
have chosen Dr. Crosland as a rep
resentative in this special field.

The 1910 team was composed of
Captain Harry M. Stine and Jami

The Oregon team of 1911 finished
second in the northwest champion
ship race. The varsity defeated ev

once. Out of the 12 games played
Oregon won 9,—losing only to the

Games in Basketball
i . • -
With three years of playing be
hind them, the senior women’s bas
ketball team won a fast game from
the sophomore second team, which
made a better showing than oif
Wednesday. Despite the fact that
the final score was 49 to 8, and that
there were substitutions on both
sides, the gamp was speedy, and
the sophomore seconds had the sen
iors puffing before the end.
Splendid team work and quick
passes characterized the playing of
the freshman first team against the
junior second, and resulted in a vic
tory of 48 to 16 for the frosh. Gen
evieve Swedenburg, Dorothy Dietz,
and Marian Newman, forward, made
one excellent pass after another.
Marion Newman came out high
point woman with with 32 points
to her credit.
In another unevenly matched
game, the freshman second team, de
feated the junior third, 34 to 8.
All games so far have been won by
large scores, but no team has yet
played its equal in rank. These
games are more or less preliminary
in nature, and it will not be until
next week that the hotter contests

No Longer Mutually Exclusive
Great Increase in Qnantity and Quality of Music
ianship, Thinks Eugene Carr
1 ‘‘The day in which the American
| boy may take music lessens and at
the same time hold a coveted place
on the football team has arrived at
last, ’ ’ said Eugene Carr, instructor
in music, in commenting upon the
increasing appreciation of the
American public for music.
“Not many years ago,’r he con
tinued, “this same 'boy would have
been the inspiration for magazine
covers, which pictured the uncom
fortable lad on his way to a fifty
cent music lesson, passing by his
disgusted companions — uncomforta
ble because he knew they despised
his Sunday clothes and the tell-tale
music roll.”
The great change which has taken
place in the American appreciation
of music is attributed by Mr. Carr
to be due in part to the superior
musical training which children re
ceive iu the grammar grades. Chil
dren are now taught to sing correct
ly. The organization of juvenile or
chestras and bands is becoming in
creasingly common.
Another factor in the popularity
of music, Mr. Carr believes, is the
growth of music as an American
profession. In this connection he
quotes from John Philip Sousa, who,
iu a recent magazine article, pro
claims. that music has at. last been

Hegelianism Is
Subject of Talk
To Philosophers
Albany College Professor
To Tell of Beer-Table
Discussion Croups
The subject of “Hegelianism in
America” will be treated by Profes
sor Raymond E. Baker, of Albany
college, in a paper to be presented
before the philosophy club Monday
evening at 7:45 in the Woman’s
“The advent of Hegelianism in
America is almost literally a case
of the arrival of a philosophy over
the beer-table,” said George Rebec,
dean of the graduate school. “Ev
erybody is familiar with the story
of the German Liberals who, after
the defeat of the Revolution of
184S, flocked to this country, and
how an exceptionally large colony
of them established themselves in
St. Louis, where, at the crisis of
the Civil War, they were staunch
Unionists to a man and were very
largely instrumental in keeping the
state of Missouri in the Union.
“At St. Louis, tho colonists speed
ily established among themselves
| the cultural habits and interests of
their old-country life,” continued
tho dean. “Among these, the age
old German tradition of meeting
around the beer-table for tho discus
sion of all themes, even up to the
bright sun in heaven and Plato’s,
Kant’s, and Hegel’s kingdom of
super-sensible being beyond.
“At about this time,” he said,
“came to St. Louis to serve as super
intendent of schools, a young Amer
ican by the name of William T. Har
ris, dreaming the dreams of educa
tional idealism but quite as strong
ly tinctured with metaphysics. Quite
inevitably Harris gravitated to the
German round-tables, one chief out
come of which occurrence was the
establishment of the famous ‘Jour
nal of Speculative Philosophy,’ the
translation for the first time of
numerous works of the German
idealists into English, and the defin
ite launching of the Hegelian philos
ophy on its remarkable career in
this country.”
Professor Baker has been doing
research work on Hegelianism in
preparation for taking his doctor’s
degree at the University and has
discovered much information not
previously known about the subject.
He is interested in both literary and
cultural history and in philosophy
and is rated as a high grade scholar
by those who know him. All faculty
members and students are invited to

Good Season So Far
The Oregon cagers have piled up
an enviable record this year, hav
ing lost but one game, and that by
a one point margin to the University
of Idaho at Moscow. The lemon
yellow men have counted almost two
to one for their opponents during
the season. Probably their greatest
exploit was against the Washing
ton Huskies whom they defeated 50
to 25 at Seattle.
Last season Duke Okerberg, lanky
Webfoot pivot man, led the confer
ence in scol'ing, swishing the net
tor a total of 98 points. He has
bettered his last year's record al
ready this season with a round hun
dred markers and has two confer
ence games, left in which to add to
his record.
The other Oregon players haven’t
been asleep at the switch either.
Algot Westergren, guard, han
dropped the oval through the hoop
for a total of 61 counters, and Jer
ry Gunther is close behind him with
59 points.
Sophs Work in Well
The Oregon sophomores too have
been busy. Gord Ridings has ac
cumulated 46 points, and ,Scott
Milligan has rung the bell for 37.
Dave Epps has chalked up nine
counters, Joe Bally and Keith Bm
mons two each, and Don McCormick
Jerry Gunther has not been scor
ing as heavily this season as he did
last, but Billy Reinhart has used
him as a defensive player more than
formerly. Against the University
of Washington Reinhart had Gun
ther watching Schuss, all-coast for
ward. He held the Iluskie Rash to
one field basket and upon this oc
casion collected ten points for him
Against the Orangemen at Cor
vallis Gunther took after Gra&p
and stuck to him like a bur. One
field basket and one point from the
gift line was all the agile Aggie
was able to chalk up, and until
Gunther had the misfortune to
stumble and fall down he held his
opponent basketless.
Okey Headed for Ail-Coast
Okerberg is the only one of the
Oregon veterans who has not rated
