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
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.

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

U. of W. Campus War
Dies Down; 6 Confess
To 4Ducking’ Party
(By United Press)
SEATTLE, Wash., Feb. 0.—Prosi
dent Lyle M. 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
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.
Zioncheck, who was back at his
classes today, has asked Spencer to
deal with the lingers leniently.
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.

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
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.
