College Engagement
Web foot Lineup Uncertain
Ridings in Infirmary
Coneh Billy Reinhart is putting
his Web foot basketball charges
through some long practice sessions
in preparation for the first Oregon
Aggie game scheduled to be played
in Corvallis Saturday night. Rein
hart is eminent rating on perfecting
the defensive play of the Oregon
five, as the team lias shown a noted
k weakness in tiiis department, this
season. Last night the super-var
sity quintet was, used against the
regulars and played on the offensive
throughout practice. Reinhart eoach
ed the first string on their play.
The reserves used Hie Aggie style
of play and it proved to bo an easy
system for the veterans to stop.
Aggies Pleased
The Aggies ore .iululant over their
showing in the race for conference
honors. Doomed to lose, they suc
rfoiled in breaking oven on their
road trip. They lost to Washington
mid Washington State hut won from
Idaho and Montana. The locals lost
to all of these teams so comparative
dope favors the Corvallis team over
the loeals. Slats C!ill, in his first
year as coach at Oregon State, has
made a very creditable showing and
is confident of taking the Webfoots
into camp.
The game Saturday will inaugu
rate the twenty-sixth year of basket
ball rivalry between the two insti
tutions and in this time twenty
, series have been played. Oregon
State had the decided edge in vic
tories until recent years and the
records show that the Corvallis
school has captured 11 of these series
while the Webfoots have only man
aged to win five. Four years the
schools split, each winning# two
games. To the actual games played
the Aggies won 40 while the locals
have been victors in 20. The grand
total points scored reads 1001! for
Oregon State and 1.103 for Oregon.
Perhaps the most bitter fought series
of all time was staged in 1925, when
the Orangemen won the northwest
championship. Both schools won two
games during their regular season
and Ihe final standings placed them
in a tie for the championship. In
the play-off, staged on the Willam
(tte university floor in Salem, the
Aggies nosed out a one point, vic
Ridings Sick
Coach Reinhart has not selected
his men yet and, with Gordon Rid
ings in the infirmary, lie is striving
to find the right combination in
ease the star forward is unable to
Ridings is leading the conference
scoring with 35 points but Frank
McMillin, of Idaho, and Rod Bal
lard, of Oregon State, are close be
hind with 3,3 and 31 respectively.
The Oregon State coaeli has shift
ed his regular lineup around again
and the Aggies will probably start
Torson, a guard last year, at a for
ward position, and Patterson and
Wascher at guards. Whitlock has
first call at center with the other
forward position in doubt, although
Ballard mav start.

tem be abolished and a price re
duction on goods be installed anil
that the management work toward
the departmentalization of the store
so that it may be, easier to determine
.just, where the profits or losses are
being made.
Rebates Unsatisfactory
The committee asserted that, the
rebate is not considered to be of any
importance by the student body at
large. Students do not bother to
save tlie tickets from their smaller
purchases. The greater percentage
of the discount tickets presented are
those given on larger sales, such ns
those of expensive textbooks, on
which no profit can be made by
the Co-op because of tho high price
lists of publishers, and tho cost of
rail transportation.
Tho committee, therefore, suggest
ed that greater benefit will accrue
to the student body if a noticeable
reduction is made upon articles such
as notebook paper and ink, which
every student must. buy. Just what
articles ought to lie reduced would
bo decided by the Board of Direc
tors, consisting of five students and
two faculty members, chosen at reg
ular election in May of each year.
History Studied
The report, in part:
“In order to secure a more
thorough understanding of 1 ho con
dition and the policies of the store,
a study of its organization and his
tory has been made. All tiie quarter
ly and annual financial statements,
audits and- reports which have been
rendered by the management and
verified by a certified public ac
countant have been examineil and
analyzed. To further satisfy our
selves as to the financial soundness
of the store, we have consulted Mr.
Spencer 1?. Collins, certified public
accountant, who Ins for a number of
years audited tho books of the Co-op
Other Stores Compared
“Information of other similarly
operated stores lias been secured and
comparisons made; meetings with
the Co-op board and tho manager
have been held where the policies
and methods of the management
have hocn fully explained and dis
cussed. A study of prices lias been
carried on and comparisons made
with prices quoted by competing
stores. Finally, a largo number of
representative students have been
questioned to determine the student
viewpoint upon matters of Co-op
service and policy. By these varied
methods we have secured the infor
mation which serves as tho basis for
our findings and recommendations.”
Makes Steady Growth
Tho committee found that “the
total net earnings since the founda
tion of tiie Co-op have been slightly
over $.".7,000. Of this $12,700 has
hern returned to students in tiie form
of refunds. In 1928 the amount of
the rebates was $2070. Tiie remain
ing $2-1,000 in earnings represents
tiie present net worth of the store
and takes the form of a more com
plete and extensive stock. The
growth of the store lias been con
tent and is especially commendable
considering that the stoic was be
gun with borrowed capital only.
“It has been the policy of the
Co-op to sell at current retail prices,
gi\ing the students all possible bene
fits in the form of free services,
refunds and a uniform standard of
quality. The committe chose a rep-,
resentativo list of items and com
pared the Co-op prices with those
of its competitors. It was found
that prices were substantially the
same on merchandise carried by all,
with but few variations and those
not unfavorable to the Co-op.”

Coach Tom Robinson, veteran
swimming mentor at Northwestern,
will have charge of the team. Four
years ago Coach Robinson conducted
a similar jaunt to the west coast in
which his team met and defeated a
number of the outstanding teams of
that section of the country. He

Law Bill Dropped
By State Congress;
Causes Criticism
Because of objection from the
university law school faculty and
officials of the State Bar associa
tion, the proposed bill admitting
graduates of the Oregon law school
to the bar without an examination
will not be introduced at the state
legislature this year, it was learned
by the Emerald yesterday.
A. W. Norblad, president of the
state senate, was sponsor of a bill
recently which would allow gradu
ates to join the bar upon production
of their diplomas. ^Adverse criti
cism from both parties involved by
the proposed bill, the law school and
the bar associations, has caused him
to decide against introducing the
It is possible that Senator Nor
blad will but a bill before the legis
lature which will stiffen the re
quirements for admission to the
bar, requiring applicants to have at
least two years of college before

tion, it was also learned.

a few days is Mr. Barker’s belief,
following the expressions of cooper
ation and good will which came as
a result of a banquet of 200 Eugene
business men Tuesday night.
Once Eugene has raised this $25,

unit of the memorial building. A
local man has agreed to lend the
building fund $80,000 without in
terest, and this with what cash* is
in from the subscription campaign
throughout the state will assure im

15 Men Subscribe
Announcement yesterday morning
that Id Eugene business men had
pledged $100,000, closing all obliga
tions under last year’s drive, and
another 15 had pledged $25,000, to
put the campaign on a sound foot

in general. It was the first public
announcement of the results of Mr.
Barker’s work since his coming to
the university a year ago. The peo
ple of Oregon have subscribed in
pledges and cash $175,000 for the
building fund.
When the people of Eugene raise
their pledge of $25,000, the promised
$80,000 will be lent, and work on
the first unit will begin immediate

Court to Be Included
The Campbell memorial court will
lie between the wings of the museum
building, according to the archi
tect ’s plans. The court will be en
tered through the main entry of the
museum building. A pool in the
open center of the area will be
filled with floating lilies and sur
rounded by small architectural
pieces. The birds and flowers of
Oregon will be represented on the
series of collonades which will ex
tend about the sides of the court,
and figures representing literature,
law, and religion will be placed
about the court. Lights and shad

Lab Equipment Helps
Study of Sea Urchins
The University of Oregon is tiie
only college on the Pacific coast
which offers facilities for dissecting
and studying the development of
sea urchins, according to Dr. A. It.
Moore, professor of animal biology.
Every year Dr. Moore goes to
Newport and at low tide wades out
onto the rocks to get them. He us
ually brings back two buckets full.
The students watch the fertiliza

urchins develop.
The class in which this work is
carried on is the freshman course in
biology. The first part of tlie year
it was under the instruction of Prof.
A. It. Sweetser, professor of plant
biology. Next week Dr. Moore takes
charge of the class for the rest of
the term.
Burt Brown Barke*-. vice president

Ronald ILubbs also voiced his ap

instead of asking someone to speak.
“If they would have the orchestra,
I’d go to the assembly,” he said.
“Yon listen to lectures all day long

Tlio library steps—hooting, flap

such will be the scene of action
when the pledges to Sigma Delta
Chi, international professional jour
nalism fraternity, put on their pre
initiation stunt for the benefit of
the bewildered public at 11 o’clock
this morning.
Carrying out a custom long ob
served on the campus at Oregon the
five pledges, Clarence Craw, Leon
ard Delano, Joe Brown, and Cecil
Snyder, all juniors in journalism,
and Scott Milligan, senior in jour

around the campus arrayed in silk
top-hats, “soup and fish,” and
canes, covering their “beats” and
getting their news “a de luxe.”
The stunts, which will begin just
after the close of the 10 o’clock
classes, will lust about 10 minutes
and will be finished in plenty of
time to allow all of the spectators
to attend the assembly. After
promptly 10:50 tho five victims
