Montana Has Two Hoop Captains on Team Southern Swimming Trip Is Unsettled; Bears Want Acquatic Meet By RICHARD II. SYRING Sports Editor If captains help a collegiate hoop ton,11, the University of Montana Grizzlies, who meet the Wcbfoots tonight in McAr-__ thur Court at 7:15, should ho world boaters. On the Montana team irure two captains, Cloyse Ove'rturf Forward, and Sam ICain, center. Both men are playing their third year for the Missoula team, mud it see:(is that instead (\f showing any par tiality to one, Jack Benefiel hotli were accorded the honor this year. In addition to the two captains, Coach “Doe” Stewart has one other experienced hoopster, Louis Wendt, a two lettered guardsman. Two of the Grizzlies’ first stringers ia.re hoopsters playing their first year of varsity competition. At one for ward, paired off with (iverturf, is Eddie Chinske. Carl Rankin, guard, is the other newcomer on the Mon tana team. Other performers in clude Hank Miller, forward, Ted Rule and Elhil Percy, centers, and Ray Lewis and Jack Doherty, guards. » • * The Montanians have had fair luck so far this season. They drop ped two contests to the fast moving Montana State quintet, 58 to 31 and 77 to 20. To lose two games to the Montana Bobcats is no dis grace, however. In the second Bobcat game a five-man defense proved impregnable to the Grizzlies, but Sam Kain and Eddie Chinske succeeded in scoring a few long shots. Displaying a fast breaking of fensive which could not be checked, and putting up an air-tight defense when necessary, the Grizzlies ran up their highest score since enter ing the conference when they de feated the Washington State Cou gars, 40 to 16. Chinske tand Over turf were the outstanding perform ers in this contest. “Bud” Rankin, last year Cub star, scored nine points while playing guard. Against the University of Wash ington Huskies last Saturday night, the Grizzlies used long passes and long shots but it was all to no avail and the Montana lioopsters lost, 44 to 24. * * # It looks like the varsity swim ming team’s trip into California is all off as far as Los Angeles is con cerned. .Tack Benefiel, graduate manager, said yesterday that he was unable to schedule a meet with the University of Southern California. Stanford is sending its swimming team east to compete, and have no money in their budget to help de fray expenses of an Oregon team. With the elimination of these two, only California is left. The Golden Bear swimmers are willing to meet the Webfoots, but another meet would have to be scheduled near the Bay region in order to take care of the expenses. There is some pos sibility that the second meet could be arranged with the Olympic club of San Francisco or the Athens Athletic club. Benefiel said the only other al ternative in case a second meet couldn’t be arranged for in the south, would be to bring the Cali fornians to this campus. In order to do this the Oregon Aggies would have to bo willing to schedule a meet also. This is the way things stand at present but Benefiel hopes to have something more definite soon. Last fall the aesthetic senses of the athletic world were shocked when several eastern college foot ball teams entered into competition with knee-length pants of brilliant colors. Now, Coach Leo Calland of Hie University of Southern Califor uia Trojans, is planning something new for basketball. He is thinking of substituting silk for the ordi nary wool as material with which basketball jerseya at the southern school are made. Calland believes that silk is much more fitted to California climate than wool.

Its composer is Vincent Youmans, whose “No, No, .Nanette” was such a success among music loving folk. Its producer is Lillian Albertson, a familiar figure among prominent play producers, who not only sent “No, No, Nanette” on tour throughout the Pacific coast but also several other successes as “What Price Glory,” “The Cradle, Snatchers,” and “Ro mance.” Already in its second year in New York and London^ “Hit the Deck” has entered its sixth month in Chi cago, and only recently closed a most successful run in San Fran cisco. In Lost Angeles it is still displaying the “Sold Out” sign at every performance. “Hit the Deck” is a story of the navy, and works with a smash and a dash that is enlivening. The height of the entertainment is reached when “Hallalujah! ” is sung, then acted, then swayed and danced and interpreted in a dozen different ways. The story of “Hit the Deck” is that of the stage triumph, “Shore Leave,” that David Belasco pre sented with Frances Starr in the stellar role. The musical version follows the original closely. The show begins tonight at 8:20. Problems in Physics Discussed by Forum Members of the Physics Forum met last night at the home of A. E. Caswell to discuss problems in physics. The group is made up of upperclassmen in the physics de partment and graduate assistants. U. of W.

Spencer today had ]>ostponed action on the punishment of eight University of Washington students who last Thursday night kidnapped Marion Zioncheck, presi dent of the student body, hazed him and then threw him into Lake Washington. Six of the eight who took part in the hazing have confessed their part and Spencer is waiting for the other two to admit their guilt be fore he decided on the punishment.

The affair is said to have grown out of attacks which Zioncheck made on the handling of student af fairs. His attack started a campus war which divided the student body into two factions. Swimmers Send Multnomah Club To 50-18 Defeat Pacific Coast Conference Records Are Toppled By Webfooters The Oregon varsity swimming team generously verified, till ipre1 meet predictions by administering a 50 to 18 defeat to their formerly dangerous rivals, the Multnomah clubmen, in a return match with them Saturday night in the pool in the Woman’s building. Two Pa cific coast conference records top pled unofficially; three P. N. A. records were set aside and another tied; and five University pool rec ords were set up anew during the fast paced tilt with the club nata tors. This decisive exhibition of swimming skill by the Webfoot team places them well to the front in Pacific coast swimming circles. A slender blond-haired lad on the Oregon squad named Johnny An derson set the enthusiastic crowd of swim fans agog by easily out-dis tancing the club star, Dana Thomas, in the 40 yard dash. He covered the distance in :19.1, thus setting aside the recently established mark of Vanden Akker of Stanford, which was : 19.4. Johnny demonstrated his versatility as a swimmer a few mo ments later when he stole glory from another Cardinal merman by. finishing first in the 150 yard back stroke event in the remarkably fast time of 1:49.5, three-fifths of a sec ond better than the time of Driggs of Stanford, 1:49.8, established as a coast conference record on January 27, 1928. Anderson has been stead ily improving in form and stamina since starting training under the supervision of Coach Abercrombie. Charles Silverman, with a sur prising spurt of speed, finished the gruelling 440 yard swim six yards in advance of George Horsfall, thus clipping three seconds from the lat ter’s P. N. A. record, and establish ing a new mark for the northwest division of 5:43.8. The race was a steady grind and the two lead men were neck and neck until the last two laps, when Silverman, suddenly increasing the cadence of his smooth crawl stroke, rapidly widen ed the distance from his rival. Breast-Stroke Wins The breast-stroke race was pat ently a Webfoot event, and Julian Smith and Wade Newbegin captured the first and second positions. The new pool mark set by Smith in this race was 3:_6.9. Stocks, low board artist of the club team, took first honors in the fancy diving division. Stone and Thomson of Oregon placed second and third. The tour into California contem plated by the swimmers is yet hang ing fire because of lack of financial guarantee. But if the Oregon team does not get to meet the California team at Berkeley, it will probably have the privilege of meeting the Bear swimmers here February 25.

U. S. Frowns on Cut In Tariffs at Havana (By United Press) HAVANA, Feb. 6. —Refusal of the United States Relegation to agree to a proposal which sought reduction of tariffs today proved another stumbling block in the path of the sixth Pan-American confer ence. The sub-committee of the confer ence which is attempting to formu late a preamble to the Pan-Ameri can union draff convention met bn a two-hour private session but ad journed without reaching an agree ment. According to authoritative infor mation emanating from the United States sources, the insistence of Honorio Pueyrredon, president of the Argentine delegation and ambas sador to Washington, that the pre amble contain a declaration of eco nomic principles through reduction of “unnecessary barriers of trade” caused adjournment.

Montana Quint Plays Oregon Here Tonight Webfooters and Grizzlies Battle on McArthur Court at 7:15 Teams Stand Even in Percentage Column New Combination Probable For Contest By JOE PIGNEY The Webfootes will be seen in notion tonight against Montana Uni versity at 7:15 in the last home _ game of the sea son. Oregon, Hav ing lost two straight confer ence! battles, must win all the re maining six games to s|tay in the running for cham pionship honors. The Grizzlies anil Webfeet stand even in the per centage column, Don McCormick although Oregon is conceded a slight edge tonight. Montana has a fast and dangerous team which gave the league leading .Washington Huskies a close fight throughout the first half, tho final score being 44 to 24. Surprise Coming William J. Reinhart declares that lie has at last found a lineup which will keep the Webfooters in tho title race. The Webfoot coach, how ever, refused to announce his com bination, and is leaving the surprise for the opening whistle of tho Mon tana tilt. Dave Epps, moved from guard to forward in the Aggie contest, is being forced to extend himself to retain his job over Mervyn Chas tain. Whichever of these two men are used, Gordon Ridings is a cer tainty for the other forward berth. McCormick Stars Center will either be Ick Rey nolds or Scotty Milligan. If Milli gan starts, the problem will be to bolster up the vacancy at guard. Assumed that Milligan may start at center, Joe Bully and Don Mc Cormick will break in at guards. McCormick was one of the out standing players on the Oreg'on team last Saturday against the Beavers. Sent in as a substitute, he connect ed for two field goals to help start the delayed Oregon rally. Reinhart believes that McCormick will give considerable offensive power to the strength of the team, and he will be a hard man to keep off the line up the remainder of the season. All U-am.es Won Montana lias been a member of the conference since 1926, coming in during the winter that Eeinhart had his greatest quintet. In tho seasons that the Grizzlies have been included in the standings, Oregon has won all four games played. In 1926 tho Webfeet defeated tho Mon tana five 40 to 19 and 35 to 17 and repeated in 1927, 37 to 24 and 54 to 32. Oregon is by no means eliminated from from chances to win the cham pionship of the northern division. The leading Huskies still have dif ficult hurdles in Oregon, the Aggies and Idaho. Oregon will play its first road game next Saturday night in Corvallis, and with the evenness of the two teams already evident the outcome of the battle is shroud ed in doubt. Tho Grizzlies’ starting lineup will include Overturf and Chinske, for wards; Kain, center, and Konkin and Wendt, guards. Kalph Colman, Corvallis, will referee, and Bill Milli gan, Spokane, will umpire.
