Beinhart has seen the Aggies in
action in all their conference games
this season, and has lined up some
plays that are expected to break
up the percentage system of bas

head coach. The main forte of the
Aggie style is to pile up an effec
tive lead' and then stall through the
rest of the contest.

Tonight at 7 o’clock in the pool
of the Woman’s building, Oregon’s
varsity swimmers will meet O. 8. C.
stars in the first engagement of the
1928 Northwest intercolle
giate schedule. This contest with the
squad was cancelled several weeks
ago, due to the failure of O. S. C.
to provide a coach for her team,
but Kerns, director of athletics, who
will guide the destiny of the farm
boys, has re scheduled the two con
ference meets, in order, the Baro
meter states, to provide competition
in minor sports for the Webfooters.
Pre-meet dope on ability of the
two teams, concedes a generous win
for the Lemon-Yellow mermen. The
next meet with the 8taters will be
held in Corvallis on March Ti. While
definite dope on the water cleaving
prowess of the Aggie men is not
available at present, Edward F.
Abercrombie, Webfoot coach, looks
forward confidently to a 15-point
margin. The strong Oregon team
that defeated the Multnomah club in
Portland on January 28 by a 24
point margin, is strengthened to
night by the addition of Julian
Smith, breast-stroke man, and bfc.

the 440-yard swim, has recovered
from illness and is doped to take a
first place in that event tonight.

proclaim to the world that we
“need” for “defensive purposes” a
navy as large as Britain. Of course,
we can and we do, but the outside
world is not gullible. And the
truth is that because we have the
money, we know we can take lead
ership and our program is not com
petitive, because no one else can
compete with us. But these things
are hard to reconcile with the
honey-coated words about “peace”

Diplomatic Diction in Berlin
HOTEL ADLON, BERLIN, GERMANY
WO German diplomats, who had
JL been at theUniversity of Bonn to
gether, met in the foyer of the Hotel
Adlon after a separation of some years.
One of them had been at a South Amer
ican capital ,one in the Orient.
Eagerly they discussed old times and
common memories, and they were still
talking excitedly as they started to
ward the Otis Elevator. When they
reached the door, they paused,each
wishing to give the other precedence.
“But you must go first, my good
friend,”one of them was heard to re
mark. ‘‘I’m sure the ride will be a nov
elty to you after so many years in the
East, and 1 would not think of preced
“On the contrary,” answered the
other,“I am insisting that you enter
first. We lacked some things in the Ori
ent, but the Otis, there as here, is in all
the big shops andhotels.”“ We’d better
squeeze in together, then, because South
America, too, is well equipped! But
wait a moment! You must go first, for
I used the Otis on board the steamer
every day!” “I, too! I will not be out
Starting forward together, they col
lided at the door.
One would have to travel farther
than civilization, East or West, to find
any novelty in that taken-for-granted
convenience, the Otis Elevator.
