    Freshmen to
Renew Feud
At Corvallis
Tilt With Rooks Saturday
Expected To Be Hard
Fought Affair
Babe Team Bothered
By ‘Center-Complex’
Walgren and Dvorak Tried
At Pivot Post
Saturday the Oregon frosh journey
to Corvallis to renew the hoop feud
between themselves and the Aggie
rooks which was initiated last week
end in a duckling trimming by a one
point margin.
The frosh have a four-game series
with the Beaver yearlings and as but
one game has been played, the win
l n or ^ the series is yet a matter of
conjecture. ' The games should be
all close, as the teams are evenly
The final two tilts come a week
from this Friday and Saturday, the
game Friday, February 17, at Eu
gene, and the one on Saturday, the
ISth, at Corvallis.
Kook Team Good
Spike Leslie regards the present
Orange rook team as the best to
come from O. A. C. in years and ex
pects all three of the remaining
. contests to be hard fought battles.
Pre-season showings of the frosh
and the rooks looked to favor the
former, as the Oregon babes went
through their pre-conference sched
ule with a clean slate while two
Portland prep schools set the Beav
er infahts down with a loss.
It is evident now, however, that
the rooks have improved greatly
and have even a smoother working
combination than tho frosh, who
have been ragged in both their con
ference appearances in McArthur
Leslie is working at present to
eradicate this fault of mishandling
Ihe ball that seems to* trouble the
duckling basket artists. Scrimmage
is also playing an important part
in tlie duckling cage campaign this
week in preparation to the Week-end
trek to the rook strong-hold.
“Center-Complex” Develops
On defense tho frosh showed
sieve-like tendencies on frequent oc
casions during the Aggie tilt—al
though not as bad or as often as in
tho earlier Washington freshman
game. So defense is elairping its
share of the practice session in the
Igloo each afternoon.
Like the varsity, the yearling
squad is showing symptoms of con
tracting the ailment called “center
complex.” Gene Eberliart has been
having trouble in getting the tip
off in the last two games aiyl Leslie
is trying out Paul Walgren and Ed
Dvorak as alternates for him.
The big blonde Walgren and the
willowy Dvorak both have a slight
ed^ on Eberhart in jumping and
may be able to work in a remodeled
lineup for the coming rook tussl^
Calkins Shows Up
Another Webfoot infant who look
ed like the money in the last tilt
was Windsor Calkins, who besides
dropping in a couple of field goals
when the local yearlings needed
them badly, played a good game at
Cliff Horner and Harold Olinger
are still holding forth as the most
consistent regular performers for
the frosh. Woodward Archer and
Jerome Lillie are still in the fore
front of the competition for berths
as is the diminutive Alf Makinen,

Art Rudd, Former Emerald Editor
Arrives for Newspaper Conference
Art Rudd, ’24, former editor of
the Emerald, who is now covering

Arnold Bennett
;n the installa
esident. “Ore
..ere are proud of
Old Oregon as a magazine; and as
a former Emerald editor I am glad
to see how favorably the Emerald
compares with other college papers,”
the former editor stated.
During his visits to over 40 cam
puses during the past year he didn’t
find anywhere any higher interest
in the fine arts than at Oregon,
he said.
Among the Oregon students vis
ited during his travels wore: Sol
Abramson, former Emerald editor,
who is now an associate editor of
The New Student, in New York;
Kenneth Youel, also a former Em
erald editor, now a member of the
financial staff of the New York
Evening Post; John MacGregor,
former student body president, who
is -now studying law in New York;
and Alfred Erickson, former mem
ber of the Emerald, staff, who is at
present city editor of the Sacra
mento Union.
Politically everything seems fa
vorable to Herbert Hoover in a
presidential way, in the country Mr.
Rudd visited. In the Gulf region
the citizens and newspaper people
are quite indignant because the
government hasn’t made more pro
gress with the plans for Mississippi
flood prevention, according to the
Oregon grad.
Mr. Rudd was editor of the Em
erald when it was changed from a
six to a seven-column paper and
carried a Sunday literary edition.
He was a president of the Pacific
Intercollegiate Press association,
and was affiliated with Sigma Delta
Chi, Friars, Hammer and Coffin,
and Phi Gamma Delta, where ho is

Adventure Accompanies Debaters
On Journey Through Oriental Lands
Hempstead, Undaunted by Revengeful Hebrew, Calmly
Films Terrifying Scene
The tale of how adventure and
tragedy and near-tragedy rode side
by side with the University of Ore
gon world tour debaters on their
;jaunt through old Palestine and
Egypt was embodied in a letter re
ceived by Ray Nash, editor of the
Emerald, from Benoit McCrosl^ey
at Rome. *
Hempstead made a side trip
from Port Said to Jerusalem to
take pictures of the Holy Land, and
wl^ile he was doing that, Avery and
I were “doing” Cairo. To be more
correct, it just about “did” us. We
found it to be quite a gay and cos
mopolitan city with French influ
ence, especially in the matter of
language, mor^apparent than Brit
ish. When Jack returned from Pal
estine, he had an interesting exper
ience to tell us. It seems that on
the return trip the train he was on
struck a small boy and injured him
fatally. The train stopped, and a
crowd, including the father of the
child, gathered around the body. As
Jack reached the throng, movie
camera out, and all ready for an
unusual scene, the father suddenly
; became enraged, pulled out a large
and efficient knife, and started for
' the engineer. That unlucky gentle
man saved himself a sudden death
by climbing to the top of his cab
and running the full length of the
train until the crazed man was paci
fied. Meanwhile, the intrepid Hemp

Greater Oregon Man
To Be Elected Soon
By Student Council
The following was passed as a
permanent resolution by the student
council at its regular meeting last
night at five o’clock: “Since here
tofore the late appointment of the
Greater Oregon Committee, prior to
the close of the school year, has not
permitted sufficient time for the
proper organization of its members
and their functions, the president of
the student body shall appoint an
upper classman as chairman of the
Greater Oregon Committee not ear
ker than the first- week in Febru
ary, nor later than the third week
in February. Furthermore, the new
ly appointed chairman shall select
his directorate not later than two
weeks after his appointment, who
in turn shall immediately perfect the
organization of their sub commit
tees so as to permit the functioning
of the entire committco during the
spring vacation preparatory to the
heavy summer duties.”
Due to the action taken by the
council a permanent resolution con
cerning regulation of expeditures
for class dances will be prepared.
This matter has been under consider
ation for some time, due to the com
mon opinion that more money than
is nocessary is usually spent for
decorations at such functions.

Burt Brown Barker
Arrives on Campus
To A ssume Position
New Vice-President Will Devote Self to Service
For State of Oregon; Mrs. Barker Here,
Daughter Will Come Later
“I suppose you’re wondering why I’ve eome out, here to
take the viee-presideney of Oregon,” smiled Burt Brown Bar
ker as he seated ifimself leisurely in one of the deep chairs of
President Hall’s home, shortly after his arrival in Eugene on
the nine o’eloek train last night.
“As a boy in Oregon, I had the conception that a man should
divide his life into three periods. The first twenty-five years
in preparation, the second twenty-five in money-grubbing, and
the third in some public service.”
During his travel in England, Mr. Barker said, he saw' men
doing just that thing. There many retired business men w’ere
entering into politics or using their money to better conditions
in their communities.

The Montana gaino may have been

to those who witnessed tho game,

Oregon’s team has been hampered
somewhat this season by individual

Daughter for Oregon
The new vice-president told Kow
his daughter Barbara, a girl of 18,
now studying at a private school in
Orange, New Jersey, was first to
encourage him in accepting the Ore
gon offer. Although he was offered
the vice-presidency of a large col
lege with millions for endowment,
ho decided to come to Oregon to
tackle the job that offered him the
most in public service.
“If the state wants me bad enough
to call me, I am going to that one
that gave me my young ambitions
and ideas,” Mr. Barker decided.
“I’d sooner work five years hero
and have a decent funeral, than
live in luxury for 25 years in New
York and dio a simp. My ideals and
start I got here. Now I return to
do a piece of public service.”
Likes ■University Life
“Isn’t that logical?” asked the
now vice-president wjth a smile thnt
was irresistible. Ho took off his
glasses, and held them in one hand.
“There’s nothing strange about the
decision I made, for I grew up and
trained myself for that very thing.”
Mr. Barker was glad that he had
found his work among university
people. AH his life he has kept
in contact “with student groups, first
at ^Villametto, then at the Univer
sity of Chicago, then at Harvard.
He has trained many debating teams
and is himself a founder and char
tor member of Sigma Delta Rho.
Work Will Live
“This is a groat public service
institution,” said Mr. Barker, in
speaking of the University. “It
takes caro of the boys and girls of
Oregon. Every bit of energy I put
in hero will go on long after I’m
gone. Isn’t that a comforting feel
ing f”
The new vice-president is quite
tall, has soft groy hair and blue
eyes that seem dark and friendly.
Tios of boyhood days, which have
never been severed, bring him back
to Oregon, feeling that he is really
acquainted and belongs here. “Why,”
Baid he, “your governor has known
me ever since I was born.”
Likes U. P. in Emerald
Mr. Parker was interested to
know if the Emerald office had re
ceived his letter in which he had
inclosed his subscription payment.
“Bo you know,” he said, “I can
write letters that you would split
your sides laughing at, but the
minute I get on my feet to make a
speech I get serious. I guess that
is the preacher in me coming to the
“The thing that seemed outstand
ing to mo in tho Emerald was the
United Press service, and the fact
that it carried general news of tho
outside world of real value. It
shows that somebody on the staff
has been using unusually good judg
ment in tho selection of this news
and they are to be commended.
Surely if the Emerald is self-sup
porting, there is no need for such
stinting as to cause suspension o'
the service.”
