    Oregon Team
Leaves For
Seattle Today
Huskies Favored To Win
From Webfoot Players
In Opening Hoop Mateh
Biggest Development
Shown by Roy Hughes
Ten Expected To Make
Journey to Washington
Tbe University of Oregon basket
ball squad, ten strong, will entrain
for Seattle this morning to open
imp I’.itty conter
tnco hoop, season
tgainst the Fni
sity of Washing
ton Huskies. This
nill he the first of
1 series of six
games tire Web
foots will play be
fore returning to
Eugene. Five of
I hose contests will
lie against confer
ence teams anj
the sixth will be H. Eberhart
played with Gonzaga, at Spokane, as
a return game. The Bulldogs defeat
ed the Webfoots here last week.
Huskies Favored
The TTuskies are generally favored
over Oregon in Saturday’s game.
The northern squad has made a clean
sweep in all of the pre-season games
while the Oregonians have played
only mediocre ball. Coach Rein
hart thinks his men will come out
of their slump against Washington.
The Oregon team is expected to fight
it out with the Huskies for the north
west championship. Reinhart has
worked his men in long practice
sessions of late in an endeavor to
whip them into shape for the open
ing game. After trying several
combinations he has about decided
to start five of last year’s letter
men Saturday It is probable that
Gordon Ridings and Scott Milligan
will line up at forwards, Ray Ed
wards at center, and Hon McCor
mick and Have Epps at guards.
Snider Best Bet
Washington's best bets include
two former Portland high school
stars, Milton Berensen, center, and
Stanley Jaloff, forward. Monte
Snider is again picked as the key
man of the Washington attack. He
is a veteran player and a dangerous
man in any game.
One of the outstanding develop
, ments of the hoop season thus far
is the rise of Roy Hughes, a new
comer to the. Oregon ranks. This
young man has almost won a regu
lar job over the veterans on hand
and is expected to see much service
on the road trip. Hon McCormick
and Have Epps have also shown
marked improvement in recent
games and the team worfT! well to
gether on the defense. McCormick
has also found his shooting eye of
late. Scott Milligan has been shift
ed to a forward berth from guard
because of his scoring ability. He
has played the most consistent game
of any man on the squad. Ridings
k came through in the last Willamette
game to lead in the scoring. He
has been bothered with the flu and
recently has been nursing an infect
ed elbow. He is in better shape at
present than at any time this season.
Among the men expected to make
the trip are Gordon Ridings, • Scott
Milligan, Keith Emmons, and Roy
Hughes, forwards; Ray Edwards and
Howard Eberhart, centers; and Hon
McCormick, Have Epps, Marvyn
Chastain, and .Toe Bally, guards.

Golf, Swimming to Remain
Minor, Says Order of ‘O'
A meeting of the Co-op investiga
tion committee was hold yesterday
afternoon. ‘'Tliis investigation was
prompted, not l>v the belief that
the Co-op is being misrnn, blit that
there is an insufficient, understand
ing of its policies,” said Roy Hern
don, chairman, “We think that
possibly our investigation may re
veal certain ways in which it may
be improved and the students given
greater benefit.”
The Order of the “O” went on
record today as not favoring the
resolution to make swimming and
golf a major sport at the present
time, because the matter lias not,
been thoroughly investigated and it
is believed there is insufficient com
petition in the two sports, especially
here on the eoast. Some favorable
comments were made in favor of
giving a letter to any athlete gain
ing national recognition.
Equipment Inadequate
Believing that, as a whole, the
present equipment, of the infirmary
and dispensary is inadequate for
taking pare of emergencies and cases
or ordinary illness, the infirmary
investigation committee yesterday
recommended that a student hospi
tal should lie established. The hos
pital would be sufficiently equipped
and large enough to take care of
cases, which now, should another
like tlie previous flu epidemic arise,
would have to bo treated in differ
ent. parts of tlie campus.
Tlie report, as drawn up by the
committee consisting of .Toe Me
Kcown, president of the associated
student body, Art Anderson, vice
president, Helen Webster, Edith
Dodge, and Bonn Alin, is as follows:
Report Made
“After investigating thoroughly

which aroused so much comment,
tlie committee wishes to make the
following report:
“(A). George Glenn was given
adequate medical attention by the
health service of the university.
“(B). The consulting physicians
in Portland were unable to deter

Ratification of
Kellogg Treaty
Cheers DeCou
Professor of Mathematics
Has World Peaee for
Hobby Several Years
After having had world peace as
a hobby for several years, tho re
cent ratification of the Kellogg anti
war treaty by the United States
senate appears to Professor Edgar
E. DeCou, professor of mathematics,
as a “dream come true.” Professor
DeCou is president of the Eugene
chapter of the Council for the Pre
vention of War. The local council
has been organized for over a year
and is composed of professors, stu
dents, and townspeople.
As far as professor DeCou knows,
he was the first man to give a talk
on world peace in the state of Ore
gon. This speech was given in 11)07
before the Oregon Xtate Teachers’
association in Salem. “At that
time,” Professor DeCou says, “world
peaee looked like a far-away dream.
Few people were interested in the
question or were giving it. any
thought. However, since the World
War, great impetus has been given
the movement, by the founding of
the League of Nations, the World
Court, and finally the ratification
of the Kellogg Treaty. .World peace
may be realized in this generation.”
Since his speech in 1907, Pro
fessor DeCou has talked on world
peace many times, often making it
the subject of commencement ad
dresses. While the question has
been before the senate, he lias sent
resolutions from the Council for the
Prevention of War, the Federation
of Women’s clubs, and the various
granges to the senators asking them
to support; the treaty and oppose
the cruiser bill. Many replies have
been received from the senators
promising their support,
“It seems like a great progress
to me,” says Professor DeCou, “to
have world peace change from a
dream to a fact in a quarter of a

Frederic S. Dunn, professor of
latin, lias an article in the January
issue of the Classical Journal, his
subject being “The Classical ‘Roman

magazine is the organ of the middle

England and the Pacific states as
Professor Dunn points out, in his
article, that “an amazing abundance
of errors is revealed in historical
fiction arising from the misuse of
the classical Roman name, few novels
escaping the ban of criticism in
one phase or another. Inverted
order, substitution of one element
for another^ or duplication of the
same element, impossible combina

the classics,” the article continues.

Little Theatre and Talkies Coming
To Foreground, Says Cay MacLaren
The days of one night stands—of
playing Fall City tonight and North
■Bond tomorrow, of gulping coffee
and hamburgers at “Open All Night
Cafes,” of bunking at. dingy hotels
with temperamental radiators and
'warmed oAer soup, of sitting in dirty
depots, in the gray of dawn, waiting
for the morning train, hectic, ex
hausting, driving days, but glamor
ous, romantic, colorful ones for all
that—are in the swan song stage,
doing their last great act.
Gay MacLaren says so. Gay Mac
Laren who as the woman with the
camera mind, has had her place,
though a peculiarly exalted one, in
the world of show folk, for years.
Science is doing it, she says. Do
ing it with movies first, radio later,
and now talkies.
Only New York, Chicago and Bos
ton will withstand the shock of the
new industry of wholesaling drama.
“Those big cities have had the ac
tual thing, in its best, for too long
to give it up. First rate actors will
make their homes in the three cities
and continue to act in productions
of contemporary good drama,” de
clared Miss MacLaren. “But for
smaller cities the days of good
plays, produced by traveling com
panies, are doomed.”
Tt is to the Little Theater move
ment, in which home town people
give plays, purely with their love of
drama as the incentive, that Miss
MacLaren looks as the means of
providing real drama in the average
American city of a dawning to
morrow. “And they will make a
glorious, interesting thing of it,”
she adds.
“Stage folk won’t mind. Many
of them will find future work in
Hollywood—Hollywood is ashen now
•with worry over the talkies. It’s
the gold rush over again for voice
“Funny, isn’t it, that the movie
stars who just a little while ago
took the foremost place from the
stage actors, are perhaps going to
have the tables turned on them?”
suggested the woman who held an
audience tense Wednesday night at
the Woman’s building when she
gave Channiug Pollack’s, “The En

a permanent home. They are the
most domestic people in the world—
