To Ask Hartley
To Lift Up Bars
Beg Governor To
Nine Football, Basketball
Men Get Suspensions
(By United Preen)
SEATTLE, Feb. 7.—Nine athletes
and athletic officiijs of the Uni
versity of Washington who have
been expelled or suspended for haz
ing Marion Zioncheck, student body
president, intimated tonight that
they would appeal to Governor Ko
lnnd H. Hartley, -to have their sen
tences modified or set aside.
Lvlo M. Spencer, president of the
university, startled the school today
when he announced that five foot
ball players, one member of the
basketball team, the head of the
Association student publicity bureau
and managers of the football and
basketball teams had been expelled
or suspended. Two had been ex
pelled and the others suspended for
from three months to a year, but
Spencer did not classify the stu
dents who received the heaviest sen
The men punished were John W.
Oeelian, quarterback; -Leland Shel
ton, guard; Elliott I’ulver, quarter
back; Walter Sarli, end; Joseph
Bowen, center; Hall Johnson, guard
on the basketball team; Wilbur Mc
Guire, publicity director; Philip
Wolgemuth, football manager, and
Chad Knowles, basketball manager.
The hazing of Zioncheck climaxed
a war »f words that had divided the
university into two factions. The
student body president was kidnap
ed, his head shaved and he was
ducked in Lake Washington.
Rifle Team Improves
Scoring Since Start
Of Shooting Season
A marked improvement in shooting
since the beginning of the season
has been made by the It. O. T. C.
riflo team hero, according to Cap
tain Clarence Bragg, coach of the
team. Seven competing teams have
been matched against the local toam
during the last throe weeks, all of
them winning the matclios ngainst
the locals, though often with few
points to spare.
In the first matchos of the season
in the week ending January 21, the
Oregon team mado a total of 3088.
During the week oipjjpg January 28,
the total scores of tho men on the
team hero rose to 3184, and in tho
week ending February 4, tho scores
mounted still higher to 3354.
| Tho high men among the 15 who
qliot tho first week wore P. A.
Juvesly with 345 points and Wayne
Voatcli with 322 points. During the
second week Veatch made tho high
est score with 334 points and E. T.
poison came second with 332. Tho
third week saw a rise in tho scores.
L. W. Westfall made tho high mark
of 350 and P. J. Carroll and K. I.
Ingalls tied for second with 348.
' As the team is made up of fresh
men and sophomores who are prac
tically all shooting for the first
time, these scores are considered
very good. Captain Bragg expects
to have a very good team next year.
Cause of Lawyers’
Defeat Is Discovered;
Bill Adams Kidnaped
Just wliat caused the lawyers’
This question lins been uppermost
in the mind9 of campus folk since
Saturday afternoon, when the bar
risters’ crack basketball five went
down to defeat at the hands of
their age-old Tivals, the journalists.
And by a little inquiry this writer
has found the answer.
It seems that Bill Adams, coach
of the lawyers, received a mysteri
ous telephone call at 11 o’clock Fri
day morning to come to the Oregon
Electric. Out of curiosity Adams
went down, and one answering to
the name of “Oregon” .Tones ac
costed the popular young coach, and
by subtle means inveigled him onto
the train and hence to Portland, re
turning him to Eugene at 6 o’clock
There you have it, folks. Again
the journalists’ .victory is in ques
tion. Under the circumstances the
law school says it cannot, recognize
the scribes’ claim to superiority.
Will it be another battle? Had
Adam been present, to coach his boys,
who knows what the final score might

In O. S. C. Meet
Aggies Expected To Give
Star Men Listed
With the first two swimming
meets of the season securely filed
away as Oregon victories, the aquat
ic varsity is now being groomed
daily for the conference meets with
O. 8. 0. which are just in the offing.
On Saturday, February 18, the Web
footers will trek to Corvallis to
meet the state college team in the
first conference water meet of the
year. This meet is looked forward
to with interest by the Oregon
swimmers for it is doped to be a
Lemon-Yellow victory after a num
ber of years of holding down the
number two position.
No such lop-sided meet as was wit
nessed last Saturday with the Mult
nomah squad is anticipated, but the
University team seems to hold the
balance of power of the swimming
forces in the state of Oregon, and
will probably come back to Eugene
with a dozen or sp winning tallies
chalked up to Oregon’s credit. The
last conference meet with the Ag
gie men was conceded them by a
narrow lead of a single point, and
some of the men who helped build
up the decisive score for the Staters
will again match their skill with the
Oregon team. Of these, Lee Hover
■stands out. as a prominent contender
for first place honors in at least
one event. He lead in both the 440
and 220 yard swims last year and
is reported as having improved. Sil
verman, of Oregon, however, beat
Hover’s record in the 440 consider
ably in tire Multnomah meet. Pete
Jourdan, fancy diver of considerable
versatility who remains undefeated
in Oregon, also will lend strength to,
the Aggies. Kernan Markuson will
compete in his third year against
Oregon, and can furnish fast com
petition in the 50 and 100 yard
events and helps to form the relay.
Coach Abercrombie has been ex
periencing some delay in arranging
a satisfactory schedule for the meet.
According to the Pacific coast con
ference orjler, the final event for
conference meets is a 300-yard med
ley relay. O. A. C. swimming au
thorities have shown a reluctance in
scheduling this event, whether from
lack of material, or doubt ai to a
chance to win, thero are no definite
facts available, but it will very like
ly be included in the program or
else be forfeited by the Corvallis
The Aggie’s pool is 100 feet in
length and will necessitate a change
in the length of the 100-vard relay.
This race will consist of four laps,
each swimmer covering but one
length of the pool as opposed to the
two lengths covered in the 00 foot
pool at Oregon.

‘Mike’ Executed After
Attack on University
Official; Pals Mourn
Mike, “one of the brothers,”
and sergcant-at-arms extraordi
nary at the Sigma Chi house, is
dead. A shot, requested by Louis
H. Johnson, comptroller of the
University, and fired by one of
Eugene’s motorcycle policemen,
ended his short one year of life
yesterday afternoon at 1:58
Mike was executed for attacking
Mr. Johnson in what he thought to
bo the defense of one of the bro
thers. lie didn’t know that Mr.
Johnson is the man who collects
fees. But he thought there was
something menacing about the gen
tleman when he spoke to Kenneth
Robie at Thirteenth and Ojnyx
streets yesterday afternoon. So he
jumped, land meant to bite, biit
only tore Mr. Johnson’s trousers.
The police were called, and 15
minutes later Mike lay .dead on
his own soil at Thirteenth and Al
der streets. He gave his life for an
over-estimated and mistaken prin
ciple. Mr. Johnson, the Sigma Chi’s
admit, was in the right. Their last
minute plea for stay of execution
was not granted.
Mike came to the campus from
Myrtle Point, Oregon, a year ago,
as a house guest of Edgar “Red”
Slauson. He decided to Temain,
joined the Thirteenth Street l^pgs’
club, and entered into all canine
Noble, Kimm-el, Ben, Margaret,
and other Oregon dog luminaries.
