For 1928 Squad
Webfoot Prospects Drop;
No Trip South, Says
The second basketball practice of
the season was held last night in
McArthur court. Coach William J.
Reinhart continued the drill in fun
damentals begun last Monday, and
expects to have the squad in condi
tion for daily workouts after the
The Webfoot prospects this sea
son arc not as favorable as in the
past three years. Only two letter
men, Gordon Eidings and Scott
Milligan, are available this season.
Other men on the squad show prom
ise, but lack the necessary experi
ence for fast conference hoop games.
Should Clare Scallon, all-American
inter-scholastic forward return to
the Univcrstiy, things would be
helped along considerably. Re
serves from the 1926-27 quintet are
scheduled for some first string
honors if they run true to form.
Dave Epps, Joe Bally, Bernard Hum
melt, Keith Hmmons, and Don Mc
Cormick were last year’s substitutes.
There will be no barnstorming
tour this year according to Reinhart.
The trip through California last
Christmas was so strenuous that it
seemed to tire the players for the

Sophs Defeat Seniors
15 to 5 in Speedball
In yesterday’s speedball games
the sophomore firsts defeated the
seniors, 15 to .5, and the juniors
trounced the sophomore second team,
25 to 0. The seniors kept up with
the sophomores during the first of
the game, staying but a point behind
them. Athough the sophomore sec
ond team’s backfield advanced .the
ball to the forwards near the goal
several times, the girls couldn’t put
it through the juniors’ defense
Friday the juniors will play the
sophomores in the biggest game of
the season and the seniors play the
freshmen. The sophomore second
team is to be used for substitutes.
Co-Ed Chefs Make
Sooner or later, all campua puzzles
—except' those about grades—are
solved; but members of the House
hold Department give the opinion
that the present one will never be
[entirely cleared. It concerns a
“mystery pudding,’’ perpetrated by
! Lilian Tingle.
The point is that the victim is
1 supposed to be kept in complete
darkness about its contents,—either
for his own happiness, or to keep
from embarrassing the cook. This
much we know, as given from, the
lips of a co-ed chef in person: the
pudding can have practically any
edible thing in it that the cook hap
pens to have left over—-making it
a sort of sweet sister to hash.
It seems, however, that its mys
terious quality is not universally
'recognized. A few daring students
have gone on record as declaring
that it is no mystery at all—'that
every fraternity cook has known
the recipe for years.
Study of Education
By Student Group
A bibliography selected to pro
mote the study of education prob
lems among college students has
been Sent to the library by the
curriculum committee of the Na
tional Student Federation of Amer
ica. Students interested in seeing
this list cab apply to the reference
desk at the main library.
The curriculum committee wishes
to encourage all college students to
ponder the aims of college educa
tion, particularly of the non-pro
fessional or liberal sort, and to con^
sider some of the problems now con
fronting it. The books listed, the
committee hopes, will make tho stu
dents think about the meaning and
problems of this new movement.
Douglass Orr, nephew of M. II.
Douglass, librarian, is chairman of
the curriculum committee. He is

To create an atmosphere of inter
est in the question selected this year
efforts "will be made to get Washing
ton and Idaho to adopt the question
already mentioned, that is, “Re
solved, That in the United States
we are trying to give too many peo
ple a college education.” “Too
many people are going to college be
cause it’s becoming a fad,” said
Professor Horner. “There’s a real
ization that the college is coming
down to the high school level. Some
thing must be (lone. Why not make
such vital problem's the subject for
our discussions,” he asked.
The question of college attend
ance is assuming an important role
among the intellectual leaders in the
United States. It is being freely
discussed and gives promise of pos
sible reforms in entrance require
ments and Curricular attainments.
Professor Horner explained that
“The most feasible thing is to get
problems that are in themselves in
teresting to the audience. Many of
the questions used in debate ought
to interest the people, but they do
not. Get some that do.” A field
of selection was outlined by Profes
sor Ilorner that would include many
of the peculiar problems on every
college campus, such as military
training, outrageous fees, intercol
legiate athletics, student govern
ment, and student publications,
along with the proposition that too
many students are flocking to the
colleges and universities.
Inertia and stalcness among the
debaters themselves would be elim
inated by live questions that vitally
concerned their own college. Pro
fessor Horner promises those who
are successful in tho tryouts today
that they will get a chance to par
ticipate in the discussion of some of
the newer problems.

When you think of Christmas gifts, you just naturally;
think of jewelry, don’t you?
And when you think of jewelry, of course you think of
the Skeie’s store. That’s also natural.
I’m telling you again that this store is going to l'O
regular Christmas headquarters this season. Yes, I know
every othqr store in the United States says that same thing,
but I’m going to stick to niy statement just the same.
This is headquarters!
The bogs says to suggest that idea of mine again, lie
likes it. This is it: You select your gift now—a watch,
pearl necklace, diamond ring,- or anything—then pay some
thing each week until Christmas time. Makes it easy for
