Game To Be
Hard Fought
Webfoot and Beave ’$ \
Even Terms for B, 'S- «
Hoop Battle
Lineup for Annual
Tilt Gives Trouble
Second Place at Stake
The “who” of the Oregon basket
ball team for the Aggie game here
tomorrow night at 8, is a mystery
even to fho coach himself. Failure
of the regular varsitjy lineiip to
function with the greatest possible
power, may lead to several changes
in the Webfoot combination.
At center Reynolds, Edwards,
Milligan, and even Ridings are all
possibilities. Each, however, has
weaknesses that will leave holes in
the Oregon machine. Reynolds can
jump, but his legs run away from
him and he is a poor defensive man.
EdVards has improved rapidly of
late, but still lacks the polish for
regular conference competition. Mil
ligan can’t jump, and is of more
value to the team at guard. Ridings,
perhaps the best jumper on the
squad, will have difficulty in ac
customing himself to a position
other than his regular job at for
Reynolds Scores
Reynolds broke loose in the Wil
lamette game last Tuesday, and
emerged high point man. If he con
tinues to show advancement, ho may
einch the pivot-berth. Reynolds has
not been able to rid himself of
the habit of running with the ball,
which can prove disastrous to the
offensive strength of the team in
a close game.
The two guards are also causing
trouble. The combination to bo
used has not been selected, but Mil
ligan, Epps, and Bally will probably
get the first call. Don McCormick,
who has been on the bench the
greater part of the season, got into
the Wasoda game along with four
of the regulars. He worked well
for the short time he was in, and
perhaps will sec action against the
Ridings-Chastaln Forwards
The most potential forward com
bination is Chastain and Ridings.
Ridings, one of the leading scorers
in the north, is equally fast on the
defense and the offense. Chastain,
while not the accurate shooter as
Ridings, is coming along fast and
can be counted on for a number of
The high score amassed by the
Webfooters against the little Jap
anese team may have been just
enough to give the boys confidence
in their shooting ability. With two
northwest conference champions im
mediately preceding this year’s
Webfoot team, there is a natural
tendency to underrate the ability
of the 1928 hoopers.
The Aggies and the Webfooters
stand even in the percentage column
with two wins and one defeat each.
Both quintets defeated Idaho and
Washington State and lost to Wash
ington. The Vandals and the Cou
gars are low in the conference
standings, while the Huskies are in
first place.
The Webfooters and the Beavers
will present two entirely different
styles of play. Bob Hager’s per
centage system of .basketball will
be pitted against the fast short
passing attack of the Oregonians.
The outstanding feature of the Ag
gie coach’s plan is to run up an
advantageous lead, and then stall
through the rest of the game.
Shrinking Violets To
Perform at Pavillion
For Order of the ‘O’
“Fight! Fight!” will come the
shrill scream from the Order of the
“O” private box between halves at
the Oregon-O. S. C. basketball game
tomorrow night.
“Neophyte!” the husky brothers
^ the Order will roar back in a de
t chorus as—
•a—la—lala, she approaches, en
•» the south door. “She” will
>n tripping lightly across the
d floor. How shapely—how
j to the eye — ah — AH —
A HIIHH! She will probably
be cold, poor thing—and disil
lusioned. But wait—see—she is
munching an apple!
And so, while music—slow—sol
emn-mournful—exuding that limp
ing melancholy note of stalking
death, smites the ears of the palpi
tating audience on the bleachers in
solemn conclave dissembled, eleven
“frail” and “quavering” youths
will be initiated into the Order of
the “O.”
Stage Smoker
At Men’s Gym
Tumbling, Boxing, and
Wrestling Feature
Snappy Bill
The Independent club put on a
smoker at the men’s gymnasium
last night, and how!
The smoker began with peanuts
and selections by a male quartet,
none other than that which sings at
the Colonial theater.
“We want more music!” This
chant told that the crowd of more
than 300 appreciated the songs.
For about ten minutes, four as
sorted tumblers held down the mats.
Pritchard, Gilmore, Edmiston and
~Nooe were the embryo acrobats. The
first two mentioned went in heavy
for the doubles; that is, they were
teamed up. They featured pitch
backs, and varied and diverse flips.
Edmiston is one boy that lives with
out a backbone. If he has one it
is made of rubber. What that boy
didn’t do in the way of tying him
self up with his legs isn’t worth
mentioning. Nooe relied on a div
ing handspring and a “jackass.”
Two bouts of wrestling held the
crowd. Harry Elliott, 165 pounds
and holder of the University wrest
ling championship in the unlimited
class, wrestled Breese, 175 pound
champ, to a tliree-round draw. The
first round was a draw, with both
big men working hard. The second
went to Breese on a scissors and bar
arm, and Elliott took the third with
a step-over short-arm scissors.
Harold Arnold 138-pound champ,
and Art Biehl, 128- pound champ,
put on a “catty” bout, the final
decision going to Biehl. Biehl took
the first round by a fall, and the
second was a decision to Arnold.
The deciding round went to Biehl
on a decision. The little grapplers
were fast and knew their holds.
The boxing fans had a real treat
when Mike Mesi and Lando Farmer
donned the mits for two short
rounds. These boys are from the
armory and have fought together
before. Mesi attends the Univer
sity. They mixed it up from start
to finish, and mixed in numerous
clinches. They fought to a draw.
Neither of the boys were mussed
up to any great extent, yet there
was no pulling of punches. They
hit straight and they hit hard.
And so ended the smoker. Earl
Widmer, wrestling coach, acted as
referee for all matches. Boland Da
vis and Eugene Slattqrv were an
nouncer and chairman respectively.
Geology Body Experts Rebuilding
Ancient Saber-Tooth Tiger Chasis
From Rancho Labreja, a canyon
southeast of Los Angeles, Califor
nia, to the University of Oregon,
comes the skeleton of a huge saber
toothed tiger whose frame is being
reconstructed by James R. Ward,
senior geology major. It was found
in an asphalt bed, together with re
mains of elephants, wolves, and
other carnivores.
This formidable-looking specimen,
which stood higher off the ground
than the tigers we see today, prob
ably preyed upon horsesy cancels
and other such small animals of that
period. The skull shows upper and
lower rows of teeth which are not
so very big, set off by two long
tusk-like protuberances over six
inches long. These curve downf
ward, and were the real weapons
of the tiger. With these he killed
his prey, and, since his other teeth
were incapable of doing mueh work,
he merely sucked the blood from
the wound of his victim.
It is believed by scientists that
this species became extinct on ac
count of the two “saber” teeth be
coming so long and so curved that
the tiger was unable either to get
food or to protect himself.
They lived in about the middle
of the peri(«I of the development of
mammals, at a time when vegetation
as we know it was just at its be
ginning. Thgir haunts were on
wide-stretching plateaus, or flat
lan ds.
The specimen at Condon hall is
supposed to have wandered into a
lake of asphalt which looked as
harmless as water, but in which it
became bogged and being unable to
get out, died there.
Senior Ball to
Carry French
‘Adolph Menjou’ Guests
To Be Satisfied With
Dance Motif
Features To Accord
With Art Decorations
Committee Heads Named
By Bob Warner
Formality and dignity will be the
keynote of the Senior Ball which is
to be given February 18, under the
auspices of the senior class. At the
same timo complete freedom is
promised from the depressing air
of pomposity which so many formal
dances acquire.
“We intend,” says Abbott Law
rence, head of the art committee,
“to make this a place to dance and
not a museum from which to gaze
upon imported monstrosities from
other parts of the world. The most
modern of French atmospheres will
prevail. What we intend to create
is a ball room where Adolph Men
,iou could come in and feel per
fectly at home.”
No Precedent Followed
“We are not following any for
mer precedent in our scheme of dec
oration,” Bob Warner, general
chairman of the Senior Ball com
mittee, added, “it is entirely original
and up-to-date to the last degree.
Nothing stale or shopworn has been
kept in the way of ideas.”
Tuxedo colors of black and white
are to decorate the walls and stage,
while colored lights will paint the
panels with luminous glows of many
shades. However, this is planned
so that the formal dresses worn
will not be faded out by the bril
liant illumination.
The features are not to be an
nounced until a later date, but it is
promised that they will bo. in ac
cordance with the spirit of the dec
orations and not of college life.
Plans Well Started
The plans for the event are not
only already completed but work
has been well started and all com
mittees are busy with their particu
lar duties.
The heads of . all committees have
been announced by Robert Warner.
They are: Elizabeth Waara, refresh
ments; Dick Gordon, floor commit
tee; Abbott Lawrence, decorations;
Mvra-Belle Palmer, patrons and
patronesses; Nancy Peterson, secre
tary; and Sam Kinley, business
International Group
Organizes; Electing
Jachatta President
Ernest Jachatta, junior in pre-law,
was elected president at the first
meeting of the newly re-organized
International Relations club, held
last night in Condon hall. Of the
twenty-one members nominated by
faculty members on standards of
scholarship, twenty were present,
one being ill and unable to attend.
The club is a student organization,
a liberal club for the discussion of
international affairs. It is national
in scope, being sponsored by the.
Carnegie Institute for the Advance
ment of Peace, which supplies liter
ature, including several books of
Speakers will address the mem
bers at different times, and faculty
members will be asked to present
different problems to the group for
discussion, according to William
Maddox, who sponsored the club
upon its institution last year.
Other officers were elected as
follows: Marion Leach, secretary;
La Wanda Eerilason, librarian; John
Allen, publicity.
Meetings will be held on Thurs
day evening, every second week.
Youthi, Struck by Golf
Ball, Reported Better
The condition of Art Ireland,
freshman from Portland, who was
injured Monday afternoon when
struck in the head by a golf ball,
is., reported to be favorable. He
is suffering from cerebral contus
ion and will be in the hospital for
seme time yet, authorities there
said, but his skull was not fractur
ed, as was at first thought.
He was playing with two comrades
on the country club links. One of
them “flrove off” and thp ball
roHed 10 yards. Ireland walked in
the way of a second drive and was
struck behind the ear. He tvas not
affected by the blow at first, but
was later taken to the hospital after
[becoming ill.
Seth Thomas, Vintage
1876, Follows Prof.
Dunn to Math Class
On a smooth-run cnmpus ’tis said j
that one thing just naturally follows [
another, as witness Mary and the '
lamb (though some consider the fig
ure a bit rough on college men);
and the latest example of this fol
low theory is the case of Prof.
Frederic. S. Dunn of the math de
partment. Only in his case it is not
a sheep, but a clock—a Seth Thomas ;
And it is an experienced time- j
piece, as Prof. Dunn relates, for its 1
age is most as great as that of the |
University itself. It was the first
clock to adorn the dignified wall of
the Eutaxian-Laurenn debating room
of Deady, back in 1876—the only
room in the building that had a !
carpet. Here it also stood face to
face with Andrew Johnson, first
president of the University, who
held his august Latin classes there.
From this office it naturally
gravitated to Professor Dunn, who
came in presently as the new Latin
teacher, and thereafter it has never
left him. From Heady it went with
him to Yillard, and finally to Ore
gon, where it fills up wall space in
As to its ornamental qualities, the
Seth Thomas is quite up to expecta
tions, being a heavy thing with a
great brass pendulum—-which firmly
refuses to “pendulf.” By climbing
onto a table one can see it through
the black enameled door, all plas
tered up with medieval grandstand
buildings of gold, guarded alongside
with peevish-looking dragons.
For 11 years, non', it has been
dead, standing always at a quarter
to 11, and continually fooling the
math students who think tlio hour
is about up. Professor Dunn, there
fore, considers it valuable in more
ways than as an antique.
French Society
To Install Here
On March Third
Pi Delta Phi Organization
Grants Chapter to
Campus Group
Pi Delta Phi, national French
honor society, will establish a chap
ter at the University of Oregon,
and the installation and initiation
will be held March 3, at 4 o’clock
in the Alumni hall of the Woman’s
building. Announcement of the
election by the national has just
been received on the campus.
A committee headed by Miss Stel
la Kastleman, active member of the
society, and instructor in the
French department, with the co-op
eration of the Romance language
department and the registrar’s of
fice, compiled a list of students eli
gible to membership from the stand
point of scholarship and collegiate
Honorary members selected are:
Dr. Ray P. Bowen, head of the
Romance language department; Dean
George Rebec, dean of the gradu
ate division; Dr. Timothy Cloran,
professor of Romance languages;
and one special member, J. R.
Wadsworth, assistant professor of
Romance languages.
Those elected into active member
ship of Pi Delta Phi are Werdna
.Isbell, Lyle Veazie, Margaret Jack
man, Doris Gramm, Charlotte Carll,
Grace Ash, Gladys Grant, Christina
Crane, Helen Crane, LeRoy Detling,
Albert L. Halpin, Serena Madsen.
Robert Giffen, Laurence Hartmu3
and George W. Black.
Pi Delta Phi is modeled on the
lines of Phi Beta Ka|». It is ex
clusive in its membership, “thus not
only serving as a reward of honor
for able students, but as a goal to
wards which students may strive
who might not otherwise be inter
ested in maintaining a high stan
dard of scholarship.”
The purpose of Pi Delta Phi as
stated in the constitution is “to
maintain a high standard of scholar
ship in all college work and especi
ally in that work done in the French
department. To foster greater in
terest and effort in the attainment
of perfection in French and to
maintain a continued, '^nteyest in
French culture and literature after
leaving the University.”
Immediately after the initiation, a
banquet will be held in honor of the
new members. Further details will
be announced later.

Dr. Anita Muhl
Tells of Work
In Psychiatry
Most Crimes and Mental
Troubles Deelared
Mental Science Work
In Colleges Advised
Interesting Stories of the
Truants Given,
“ Seven ty-fi vo per cent of the
crimes ami seventy-five ]ier cent of
tlio insanities are preventable, ami
it’s our own fault if wo don’t pre
vent them,” declared Anita Muhl,
M.I)., Ph.T)., to the assembled stu
dents and faculty yesterday, in her
lecture on the role of mental hy
giene in preventing emotional mal
Mental hygiene work should begin
before the child reaches school age,
according to Hr. Muhl, who cited ns
an example a survey slio niado in
California of 2.10 pre-school children,
of whom more than 70 per cent had
abnormal fears. She said that such
habits are laid down before the
fifth year.
Psychiatry, according to the
speaker’s definition, belongs to the
realm of the physician rather than
that of the psychologist. It deals
with nervous disturbances from
mere worries to insanity, and with
physical disturbances, which are
much more difficult to control.
Lesser Disturbances Listed
Among people with the lesser dis
turbances, Hr. Muhl linked those
who lose their tempers, ride certain
hobbies to death, or have night
mares and morbid doubts, all of
which are symptoms of emotional
conflict. .She explained that psy
chiatry tries to give constructive
ideas and habits to enable the pa
tients to steer clear of maladjust
ments, and that the aim of mental
! hygiene is to solve these problems
and prevent others from arising.
Clinics, juvenile court psychiat
rists, high school psychiatrists to aid
in vocational and related problems,
and college psychiatrists, of whom
the University of California lias a
resident specialist, are now engaged'
in this work, according to the
speaker, who declared that there is
a tremendous need for them in the
colleges. She has had several cases
among persons who have been out
of the university two or three years.
These scientists deal with cases
from simple misbehavior to crime,
from mental maladjustments to in
sanity, and from misfits in general
to criminals.
Treatment Cures CMld
A cliilil who hail been declared
incorrigible and stupid by his teach
ers, the principal of the school, and
a physician, was brought to 'Dr.
Muhl as having a typical criminal
make-up. Slio described him as un
tidy, fidgety, ill-mannered. His
mother was intelligent but unedu
cated, and since slio worked he was
left in. the care of his 18-year-old
sister, who had been a ward of the
juvenile court.
An examination given the boy by
Dr. Muhl showed him to bo un
usually bright, and after going to
the school officials in an unsuc
cessful endeavor to get them to re
instate him, sho placed him in a
private school, after having ex
plained the difficulties to the in
structors there.
Dr. Muhl asked foT the co-opera
tion of the boy’s family, and the
father promised that they wero
“goin’ to cuperate” and that they
were very fond of the boy and
would do anything sho advised.
Twice a week the child went to
her office, and she gave him some
thing to draw or write about. He
became proud of his accomplish
ments. At the end of the year she
told him that ho didn’t need to
come back.
Last. August the boy proudly
brought her a bouquet of flowers
from his own garden and his last
report card with high marks, espe
cially in conduct.
A second boy was described by
the speaker as having been sent to
her as a truant. He had said that
he was running away from home
because ho didn’t have any more
confidence in his parents. Other
boys had teased him by saying that
he was adopted, but his family had
always denied it until one occasion
when he had provoked his mother
and she had told him that he was
really adopted. After understand
ing the cause of his trouble, the
problem was to re-establish his con

Junior Shine
Heads Named
By Chairman
Day Has Become Tradition
On Campus, So Will Not
Be Abolished
Proceeds To Be Given
To Campus Chest Fund
Co-eds Will Appear in
Gypsy Costumes
The announcement by Burr Ab
ner, bead of Junior Shine Bay, of
the appointments of heads for the
various committees, formally opens
preparations for the annual event,
which will take place within the
next two weeks.
Junior Shine Day was first estab
lished five years ago by the mem
bers of the junior class under tho
leadership of James Leake, tho pro
ceeds taken in being used for the
purchase of Thanksgiving dinners
for the poor of Eugene. This year
the funds will be turned over to
the Campus Chest for distribution.
Slogan Adopted
"A Shine for a Dime” was the
slogan adopted by the first Junior
Shine Bay committee and this has
been passed down to all the junior
classes which followed.
“It was thought for a time,” said
Mr. Abner, “that the Shine Bay
would be abolished this year on ac
count of tho establishment,’of the
Campus Chest, but wo feel that it
has become a tradition on the cam
pus which is quite worth keeping.
The college as a whole looks for
ward to it ns much as tho junior
class does, and wo promise a ‘bigger
and brighter shine for a dime* this
Ticket selling will be in charge
of tho feminine members of tho
class, who will pace the campus in
gvpsy array and coerce co-eds and
eds into spending thoir hard-earnod
dimes on their foet.
Four Stands Used
Four stands will take care of the
rush, two in front of tho library,
one between the Commerce and Ore
gon buildings, and one in front of
Condon Hall. Prizes will bo offered
for those Belling tho most tickets.
The heads of tho various commit
tees are: committees to speak at
houses, Mao Tobin and Bob TTvnd;
poster committee, Mary K. John
son; publicity, Etlia Jeanne Clark;
materials, Wendall Orny; stands,
Wado Newbegin; and ticket sale,

For Campus Planned
A private telephone exchange will
bo established on the University of
Oregon campus providing negotia
tions between University officials
and representatives of the Pacific
Telephone and Telegraph Company
are completed. This announcement
was made last night by Karl W.
Onthank, executive secretary.
All campus telephones (not includ
ing living organizations or halls)
will bo connected through the pri
vate branch exchange. There will
probably be one full time operator
and two relief operators, who will
be University girls wishing to work
! part time. This system will “speed
j up” the service and eliminate con
siderable confusion, as all long dis
l tance calls and probably telegrams
| will be bandied by the University
I operators.
