Battle Cruisers Versus

to eliminate the time clause from
the ship bill.
In so many words, Hip timp clause
says that those ships must be built
starting at a certain time. Without
the rule, the presidtnt could set the
time whenever he thought the na

part is they’re probably right.
Mark Twain could find an answer
to his satiric comment that “every
body talks about the weather, but
nobody does anything about it,” in
the American public's attitude to
ward aviation as a war weapon.
They all agree that airplanes
would be fine tilings to send out. oa

then spend about $2.50 per capita
for cruisers.
Any aviator will bet. his winter
“bennies” that planes will win the
next war and any sailor wjll bet.
his uext-to-the-last dollar on the
navy. All they need now is a war
to decide which is the liar.
Lo, the poor Indian (his name in
this case is Jackson Barnett) told
senators of Hie United States the
other day that a white woman had
married him for his money made in
oil in spite of his protests and un
willing mental attitude.
His ideas of the value of money

Because he made enemies by be
ing an exponent of birth control and
eugenics and because the students
with cars disliked his banning autos
from the campus, Or. Clarence O.
Little, president of the University
of Michigan, resigned his position
He saw incipient snobbishness in
students who owned autos, so he
banned them. He thought all stu
dents should be housed on the cam
pus, so he planned a huge women’s
dormitory for next year as a move
in that direction, lie heard Michi
gan slurred because of student
drinking, so he invited federal pro
hibition agents to police the campus
and investigate, 'flic regents and
other interested parties rose up
against him and now lie’s out. of a
job for the first time since he grad

The whole affair smacks of poli
tics and more politics, like the Suz

the same old story.
Some judge told court secrets
about the trial of a woman and the
newspaper printed them, along with
supplied pictures and laudatory biog
raphies of the judge. As it turned
out, this woman, Mine. Hanau, was a
money baroness and used the G.i

Students to Hear
South American
Talk at Assembly
Tomlinson Will Describe
Ten Republics Socially,
Politically, Economically
Edward Tomlinson, writer, travel
er, and lecturer, will bo the speaker
at the assembly Thursday morning
at II o’clock in the Woman's build
ing. During the past five years
lie has spent a great deal of linie
studying political and social con
ditions in South America, and has
analyzed some of the delicate an
gles on tin- problem of international
relations between North and South
South America is not merely a
land of wild Indians, head hunters,
and revolutions, Mr. Tomlinson dis
covered on his trip. The wild In
dians were found in the remote
fastness of tlie Amazon jungle; head
hunters have joined the dodo, and
revolutions arc over emphasized.
Shows Great Development
It is a land of broad and fertile
plains and plateaus, great cities,
limitless resources, many and
varied races of people, and art and
culture and progressive develop
ments, Air. Tomlinson reported on
his return.
Mr. Tomlinson, is very enthusiastic
about the ten republics of South
America and will tell the univer
sity students of them during his lec
ture. One of these countries has
more sheep, and exports more wheat
than the United States; he reports
another possesses half of the world’s
supply of tin; and stifi another is
able to supply the world with three
fourths of its coffee. Another thing
which causes him to revere South
[America is that the oldest university
| in the world is there, the finest
| school of art and the most preten
jtious opera house.
Mr. Tomlinson was born in the
South and fought in the World war.
Later he was sent to the British
armies to explain America to the
soldiers of the empire. He was edu
cated in this country and later
studied at the University of Edin
burgh, Scotland.
Rev. E. V. Stivers, pastor of the
Christian church, will give the in
vocation. The university band will
play three short selections before
the speaker is introduced.
remain for the Webfoots to prove
that they wore hopelessly oft' form
when they lost four straight tilts on
tlio northern road trip.
The outset of last night’s contest
had all the possibilities of a close
battle with either team a probable
victor. The Wen
foots were hitting
h li p basket, fre
quently, but. for
every Oregon score
the Grizzlies hail
one to match it.
The playing of
both tealns was so
clone during the
first minutes that
the lead changed
~ six limps.
Dave Epps Scott Milligan
put Oregon ahead at the start with
a short shot from under the basket,
and immediately following, Ed
Chinske, Montana forward and cap
tain, was awarded two free throws
and converted them both. A few
seconds later Chinske dropped in a
long, looping shot, from the side
linos. Jean Eberhnrt, sophomore
center, tied the score again, and then
Hidings gave Oregon a two point
lend. ’
The lead was tossed back and
forth until, with Montana ahead, 11
to 10, Cordon Hidings passed through
the Grizzly defense to score six
points in rapid succession. From
then on the Ori/.zlies hardly ever
came close, and the AVebfoots lead
19 to 11 at the end of the first half.
Webfoots Pile Up Lead
First Horner, then Hidings, then
Eberhnrt, then Milligan and Epps,
and the Webfoots increased their
lead in the second half to 95 points
before the northerners had fairly
started. The contest became so ono
sided that the Montana players be
gan to wonder if their victory in
the north wore more than a dream.
But it; was far from a dream, and
the blot, 29 to 28, still stands at
Missoula as a defeat for Oregon.
I Jean Eberliart, Cliff Horner, and
Harold Olinger, coming in later on
in tho game, proved the unprecedent
ed brilliance of the sophomore com
bination in the Beaver game was
something more than a mere surprise
Eberhnrt, with his long reach and
accurate eye, was second only to
Gordon Hidings for scoring honors
on the Oregon team. For the first,
time since the days of Hoy Oker
berg, the Webfoots have a center
who can get the tip-off. The play
ing of the Wehfoot team as its of
fense charged unfalteringly under
the Montana basket clearly proved
the value of the tip-off.
Montana Tries Long Shots
The fast floor work and close
checking of Cliff Horner was one of
the outstanding points in Oregon's
victory. For every time he was
‘din ved off his feet by the towering
Grizzlies, Horner was lip and play
ing harder and better than ever.
Long shots and lots of them were
the main forts of the Montana team
last night. After the whirlwind
stnrt at the first of the game, the
Grizzlies were unable to break
through the Oregon defense to score
on close-in shots. The northerners
were forced to resort to mid-floor
shots, but comparatively few of
them went into the basket.
Ed Chinske, star of the Montana
team, was peculiarly elusive even in
defeat. The Webfoots could scarce
ly touch him as he dribbled down the
floor to drop in some sensational
long shots. He alone, with 11 points,
