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.

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 Wednesday 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. Journalism Major Is Doctor in China Now Helen Brenton Pryor, who grad : uated from the school of journalism i in 1919, is now an M. D. in Nanking, I China, specializing in children’s treatment, according to a letter re ! ceived on the campus recently. “We are more or less sitting on j a volcano over here, for foreigners | are being ordered out of the cities ! up the river every day. Ships, ex i cept English, are being comman ' deered for troops, therefore travel is uncertain. It is an interesting j life and not without its thrills,” | she said. The first English person she has seen since she has been in China is Helen Whitaker who is a member of the language school faculty in Han Si Men college. Miss Whitaker graduated from the University in 1920. While at the University, Mrs. Pryor majored in journalism and took up medicine later. She was editor of the Emerald part of her senior year. test was lost to O. A. C. by one point on the varsity floor. The 1910 team was composed of Captain Harry M. Stine and Jami son, forwards; Ruth, center; Neil and Elliot, guards; and Walker, Moore and Cockerline, substitutes. The Oregon team of 1911 finished second in the northwest champion ship race. The varsity defeated ev ery conference college at least once. Out of the 12 games played Oregon won 9,—losing only to the University of Washington. During the season, Oregon scored 304 points to its opponent’s 169. It was at the completion of that season that Oregon played the Uni versity of Washington Huskies in Seattle for the northwest champion (Continued on page four) Summer Schools Held In Foreign Countries Offer Varied Work A broadening and entertaining vacation for the summer school stu dent lies in the foreign summer schools conducted in other countries.

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 1 begin. There will be no games play | ed on Monday and Tuesday. Sheldon to Go to Texas For Education Meeting Dr. H. D. Sheldon, dean of the education school, is leaving the twentieth of this month for an edu cational meeting in Dallas, Texas. He will be gone about three weeks. Walter C. Barnes, professor of his tory, is to take Dean Sheldon’s world history class while he is away. 1 Senior Ball Promises to Be Different Chairmen of Committees Confident Dance Will Be Big Success I _ Programs and Favors To be Given at Door Feature Shows Dangers Of This Generation WITH the presentation of the Senior Ball this evening the senior class will have had its last fling at entertaining the campus. The committees chosen have been at work for the past two weeks try ing to work up an affair of ex quisite finish and ingenious motif. Judging from the good humor Rolf Klep, chairman of the decorations, has been enjoying for the past few days the decorative scheme must be working out as well as expected; an unusual result in campus dances. Supper Dances Arranged At the directorate meeting yes terday each member of the director ate expressed perfect confidence that his part of the work would go off well. Very few difficulties have been encountered by the committee, a fact no class but seniors would be likely to be able to boast of since the alleviation of trouble is only by means of workers who are familiar with their particular sit uations. Programs and favors will be pre sented at the door. Each program will designate the particular sup per dance the individual has. “I wish to request everyone to ob serve these dances properly, other wise someone may have to go hun gry,” declared Dot Ward, chairman of refreshments. There will be six supper dances set aside, beginning with the fifth and running through the tenth. As an added feature, Billy O’Bry ant and Abbie Green have worked out several selections on the piano (Continued on page four) Frosh Mermen To Swim Here First Time Today Woman’s Building to Be Scene of Vancouver Club Competition For the first time this season, the student botfy will be given an op portunity to see Oregon’s exception ally strong freshman swimming team in action. The frosh are to meet the Vancouver Community club out fit in the Woman’s building pool at 3:30 o’clock this afternoon. This meet and the mix with the Aggie rooks in the local tank Feb ruary 26 will conclude the yearling season. The frosh this year have had trouble finding competition and have been able to schedule only a few meets. However, they hold an impressive 44 to 15 victory over the rooks. Although the freshman Squad is weak in reserve strength, it is pos sessed of several stars who pile up the first place points. Johnny An derson, the blonde flash, has in un official meets, bested every sprint record in the Northwest and has beaten the mark in the 150 yard backstroke by several seconds. Anderson is training to enter the State and Northwest championships at the close of the season and should cop more than one event in record time. Chuck Silverman, the frosh dis tance man, has swum some excel lent races in the 440 and the 220 yard free style events. He has not lost a race this season. Raley, breast stroker, is reliable and can be counted on for points. Harold Hatton, of the yearling bas ketball squad, recently turned out for the water sport and gives Sil verman real competition in the long er races. Father of Mrs. Hall Dies of Heart Trouble Mrs. Arnold Bennett Hall re ceived word yesterday of the death of her father, Mr. Henry C. Carney, Evanston, Illinois. Mr. Carney had been seriously ill with heart trouble for several months. Mrs. Hall will not be able to go east at this time owing to the fact that she is ill with an attack of influenza. I"Piano-Playing And Pigskin-Punting 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 Sixteen Freshmen Survive First Drill In R. O. T. C. Contest After the smoke of battle had cleared away from the R. O. T. C. barracks yesterday afternoon, only 1(5 lonely cadets remained of the five companies in the department. They alone could tell the story of how they had withstood the relent less attack of the officer’s staff as signed the task of selecting the best drilled freshmen in each company. This was the first of threo prelim inary drills that will be hold afc the regular drill period each Friday until March 11, at which time a final contest will be held. Only those who have shown up best in the preliminary drills may compete in the grand climax. The military department is offering three prizes of $25, $15, and $10 to the winners of the final competition. Judges for the contest on March 11 will be Captain F. M. Moore, F. L. Culin, and Lieutenant G. F. Herbert. The victorious freshmen in tho first preliminary competition were: Company B, Leon Baird, Rulon Ricks, and J. R. Smith; Company C, Gordon Pefley, Albert Wrigh . and Donald McCall; Company D, Willis Warren, Karl Landstrom, and Harold Bateman; Company E, Elmer Gant, George Jackson, Roy Wilkin son, and Ernest Hall; Company F, Paul Knepp, Jack Coolidge, and John McRae. . | Organized Groups Make Higher Grades Than Non-organized Students living in organizations .Made a higher average number of points during the fall term than did the non-organization students. Sorority women made an average of 43.1(5 points as opposed to 40.98 for the non-sororitv women. Fraternity men garnered 35.45 points against 35.38 for the non-fraternity. The general undergraduate aver age for the University was 38.46 points, with 35.41 for the men anil 42.00 for the women. The averages show a slight increase over those for the fall term of 1925-2(5 which were 35.03 for fraternity men, 33.88 for non-fraternity men, and 40.09 for non-sorority women. Sorority women failed to do as well, having made an average of 43.40 points a year ago during the fall. Fraternities Draw for Locations at California UNIVERSITY OP CALIFORNIA, at Log Angeles—(By PIP)—Repre sentatives of the twenty-two nation I al and local fraternities of the Uni I versity of California at Los Angeles I recently drew for preferred frater nity-house sites adjacent to the new university campus at Westwood. Under this arrangement, those of the fraternities whose representa tives drew first numbers will be giv en first choice in the matter of se lecting the lots on which their houses are to be erected. The others will take their turns in making site j selections, according to the numbers drawn. recognized as a field worthy of American attention. When Sousa organized his band in 1880 there were not half a dozen Americans in it. Sousa admits hav ing worn a beard cut. to give him a distinguished foreign appearance, so that the American public would take him seriously. Today there are only two or three foreigners in the band, for the simple reason that the American talen’t is superior. Sousa gives the credit for the improve ment in available material to the American university and college bands, which have taken the place of the once popular town bands and improved on them. “The American musician of to I Continued on page three) 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 building. “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 attend the meeting and hear his paper. i Evans m Portland \ For Organ Dedication Two of the University’s musii professors, John Stark Evans ant Eugene Carr, left for Portland yes terday afternoon for a three day’s visit. Mr. Evans will dedicate the nev Kueter organ for the Sunnysidi Seventh Day Adventist church oi Sunday; and the rest of the time he says, will (be given to completi rest. The production of ‘1 Robin hood” by the Franklin high school Friday and Saturday nights, is tin | main reason for Eugene Carr’i l trip. He is very anxious to hea the two leading actors sing, whosi voices have received a great dea of praise, lately, among musiea groups, and who broadcasted ove the radio several nights ago. Varsity Hoop Squad Awaits Aggie Contest Gordon Ridings Will Be Back in Lemon-Yellow Lineup Tuesday Okerberg Heads Loop With 100 Counters Advance Ticket Sales Are Large ' I ''TIE University of Oregon baa keteers are enjoying a well earned rest since Wednesday of tbia week. Their next encounter will be a return engage ment with the Oregon Aggie hoopstera Febru ary 22, in Mc Arthur court. In spite of the fact that the Webfoot casaba men handed the Orangemen ai drubbing in Cor vallis last week, Jerry Gunther and also that the Aggies have had a. very unsuccessful road trip, the fans are anticipating a real tustle Tuesday, that is if the advance sale of tickets can be considered a re liable criterion. The reserve sec tion of McArthur court is practical ly sold out, according to Bob Over street, who has charge of the ticket sale. 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 one. 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 self. 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 j a berth on the mythical all-coast ! quintet. Last year, in spite of his impressive record as a point gather er, he was boaten out by Higgins of California. This year, however, Hig gins is coaching the Golden Bear’s frosh and Okey has already over shadowed his former record as a Point garner. Besides this, Okey has out jumped the opposing cen ters and figured in the majority of the Wbbfoot plays. This puts him (Continued on page four) j Floyd Maxwell, ’22, To Be on Campus Soon Floyd Maxwell, ’22, who is now i manager of the Broadway theater, will be on the campus Tuesday for • a short visit. 1 Maxwell is coming to view the 1 rehearsal of some acrts that the ■ Glee elub will present at the Broad way theater spring vacation.
