For Basketball Meet
Kansas City Independents
May Come To Eugene
Coach Billy Reinhart sent his
varsity basketball squad through
another stiff practice session last
night and gave the first squad sev
eral new plays to master. Drill in
teamwork was stressed bv the var
sity mentor'and the team is fast
rounding into form. The first prac
tice game is not far off now and the j
men are working hard to perfect I
their passing attack so as to be !
ready to go at top speed in the :
.Look for Tilts
No definite scheduling of practice \
tilts has been done thus far, but !
negotiations are expected to be
closed soon that will bring the Uni-!
versify of Oklahoma basket-cagers
here for a. series of three games to
be played on January 2, 3, and 4.
An independent team from Kansas
City lias also been invited to play
the varsity five in Eugene but no
definite arrangements have been
made. This team is considered one
of the strongest amateur teams in
Coach Reinhart is very desirous of
playing Oklahoma as they have won
1(1 games in a row in the Missouri
valley conference last year. Billy
thinks that practice games with
strong teams will do his charges
more good than easy games.
Men in Chastain, veteran forward,
who was injured in practice last I
week, was out again last night and :
is working to keep in condition. Ilis
bad shoulder is swathed in bandages,
though, and it is doubtful if he will
he sufficiently recovered to be able
to participate in the early games. -
ilis loss will be sorely felt as he is
a consistent petformer.
Reinhart is working with a first j
team composed of Gordon Hidings j
and Den McCormick, forwards, Ray
Edwards, center, and Scott Milligan
and Joe Bally, guards. These five
men work very smoothly together ;
and every one of them is a good
shot. Ridings and Milligan were I
considered two of the best players !
on the coast last year and are work
ing better than ever. Dave Epps, a
versatile lettermen, is a dangerous
man in any game and threatens to
break into the regular lineup any
time. ib‘ is a dead shot on cripples
and also plays a good defensive
Many Reserves Ready
The new men trying to make the
grade are keeping up their sensa
tional play and Reinhart will have
plenty of reserves who are almost
equal to the regular team. Roy
Hughes and Harold Olinger have
been showing the best stuff in prae- j
tice and Reinhart is keeping a j
watchful eye on them. He has also ;
been working with Homer Dickson, I
lanky recruit from Southern Oregon !
Normal. Dickson has the build and j
is fast for a man of his size. Under I
Reinhart’s coaching he should de- i
velop into a first class varsity
placer. Howard Eberhart is also
showing good form in the workouts!
and will probably see plenty of ac
tion during the season. He is a
former Eugene high school star and
has played basketball for several
years. Injuries have hampered his
play for the last two years but this ,
season he is in good condition.

Best Football Team

Pears and hopes will bo refuted
or established today at Los Angeles
when the 1929 Pacific coast confer
ence football schedule is adopted.
The "big four.” California, Wash
ington, Stanford, and Southern Cal
ifornia, has cast a dominant charm j
over the northern section of the
conference, and the less fortunate
members will have to take the leav
It is not like ly that Oregon will
suffer from lack of conference
games in 1929. The Wcbfoots are a
strong team and a desired team, and
Jack W. Beliefiel, Oregon’s graduate,
manager, may be able to line up a
better set of games than was first
0. A. 0., Washington, and U. C.
L. A. are definitely on the Wcb
foots’ schedule, and the other teams
will be added today.
Oregon may well look with envi
ous eyes toward the success of Pa
cific coast teams over eastern riv- I
als. Regrets that it was impossible
for the Wcbfoots to line up a sec- [
tional contest this year become j
doubly acute when it is necessary to
stand by and watch an inferior
team capture so much glory.
Oregon, as leading team of the
northwest and conqueror of the
conqueror of New York university,
leading team of the east, should not
be enable to schedule a game with
a mid-west or eastern team for next
The Wcbfoots need the game.
Football has reached the point
where pre-season or post-season
games with strong teams from other
parts of the country are nearly as
important as the regular conference j
games. The interest is ‘greater, the
attendance is increased, and the '
prestige of the rival teams is ad- I
O. A. C. still is smarting from its j
loss to the Wcbfoots. The Beavers,
with their admirable success in the |
cast, find themselves unable to \
fathom the mystery of the Webfoot
triumph. Post-mortems galore were
held, but all investigations flopped
until the Beaver team won in New
York last Thanksgiving. This is
the final conclusion, as quoted from
the O. A. (’. Barometer:
“Maybe our dear Lane county
friends will at last believe, some
what at least, that their victory was
imbued with plenty of good luck.
But that makes them CHAMPIONS
OF T11E UNITED STATES now,
so they should worry.”
So Oregon through the courtesy
of the Beavers becomes the chain-'
pious of- the United States. The
Wcbfoots are happily content to be
the champions of the United States.
At first we sought only the cham
pionship of* Oregon, but of course,
you know, O. A. C. insists that we
become the champions of all 48 of
these United States.
However often the Aggies want
Oregon to take over the champion
ship of the United States, Oregon
never will refuse. The process is a
simple one, according to the Aggies: \
the Beavers will permit Oregon to
win over them so that the Wcbfoots ^
may enjoy the title. Tt won’t be
long now until the Beavers offer
Oregon the championship of the
Jusr a couple more championships
for Oregon from the Aggies, and
there will be great changes at O. A.
V. The coaching staff, perhaps,
will be the first. After the first
two or three years the Beaver men
tors will get tired of handing Ore
gon the honors, and probably will
want to go elsewhefe. That often
Yep, it is the awful truth that the
Beavers had a lot of tough luck this
year. When they boarded the train
for the east, it was with a feeling
that a good walloping awaited them
in New York. It was just another
tough break that made them sched
ule the strongest team in the east
whereas they themselves only were
about sixth rate oil the Pacific
coast. That mysterious tiling "luck”
which the Aggies talk about got to
working again and now the Beaver :
officials are the “champion sched
ulers’’ even though Oregon is the
“champion football team.”
It' O. A. C. is satisfied, so, then,
is Oregon. If this season has made
the Beavers happy, it is Oregon’s
wish that they will always be happv.
I guess that makes everyone happy. '
