More time trials were held last
night for the Oregon swimmers.
Chuck Silverman turned in a 220
yard distance in the time of 2 min

just about equals the Northwest
record. A1 Edwards made the 50
yard dash in 26.4, which was very
good time. Johnny Anderson has
a bad cold and was not in condi

In an exhibition match in Mc
Arthur court last night after the
basketball game, Sherman Lock
wood, first ranking player on the
Oregon varsity tennis team, de
feated Bradshaw Harrison, one of
the stars on last year's srpiad, tt-4.
Lockwood took the advantage
from the start, playing a swift,
steady game. Harrison was han
dicapped by the fact that he broke
both his rackets, and the match
had to be called off at the end
of the first set on that account.

free throws he hail.
By virtue of winning last night,
Washington takes possession of
second place in the Northwest
conference and Oregon is relegat
ed to third place. The golden op
portunity to gain undisputed title
to second place has been lost to
Oregon for a while at least, but
tonight's game offers the chance
to a tie.

ial basis or isn’t he? That seems
to be the question which is being
debated around the state, with ar

country and he declares that

The nom de plume has been
the bane of sports writers up
and down the coast and east
ward. Many of them never
thoroughly understood just
what all the requirements of a
professorial coach were. The
typographers on the newspa
per*, we; * constantly making
errors in the spelling of the
word and frequently set it up
as professional. After reading
some recent stjrtements we,
too, Imve decided that we do
not understand all the intrica
cies of the term.
One of the terms of a profes
sorial contract, as originally stat
ed by Dr. Hall was that the coach.,
would be on “an indefinite tenure."
This meant that no contract of a
stated length would be drawn up.
Dr. Spears has a contract for five
years, and we don’t think he is on
n real professorial basis. Student
opinion has been rampant on this
Just What Is a Professorial Contract
A SCHOOL that was not considered powerful enough to offer the
right amount of competition for the other members of the North
west conference has recently risen to unthought of heights and smote
the holder of the top rung in conference basketball standings a mighty
blow on the chin. In other words, we mean that Montana beat Wash
ington State at Pullman, and the Grizzlies did it up in fine fashicm.
Washington State did not take the game too easily, either, and
the Cougars started their regular lineup. The Grizzlies, led by
Chtnske, could not be stopped and their revenge must have been very
sweet. Montana has always been severely handicapped by a very
small student body, and also by being stuck away off the beaten trail
of coast colleges.
If Oregon students will remember back to last year they will
recollect that Montana was a thorn in the side of the Webfoots. The
Grizzlies won both games from the Webfoots and helped to send Coach
Reinhart’s men down in the standings. The Grizzlies have developed
some great individual stars in all lines of sport, and are one of the
hardest fighting outfits on the coast.

There is hope that Jansa and Bow

Mrs. Weathered attended her
first national press convention
about SO years ago. Her brother
being unable to go, sent her to
represent the Oregon Press asso
ciation at the meeting in New
York City. That was her first
trip to New York and her first ex
perience in journalistic work. Com
ing from such a distance, and a
woman at that, Mrs. Weathered
was treated with a great deal of
respect. They even went so far
as to elect her a member of the
supervisory board, a position
which she held for five years.
One of the southern delegates
to the convention, interested in
coffee production in Hawaii, and
bearing that Mrs. Weathered was
from Portland, which he supposed
to t>e only a short jaunt from the
islands, requested that she write
an article for him on the subject
of coffee raising in Hawaii.
"Hawaii." Mrs, Weathered ex
plain*'*! incidentally, is mispro
nounced by most Americans. Its
real pronunciation has no "w”

To get the article as requested,
she interviewed several steamship

would leave at once for Europe.

again sometime, but not for longer i
than three months at a time.” j

Dr. Sanborn has recently com

the notice of scientists all over
the country. The work was done
under the auspices of the Carne

new species of flora which have
not heretofore been found In North"
America, and which show definite
affinities with certain tropical
Since the expedition is to leave

is possible to arrange her work
in a satisfactory manner, she plans

Is Agent’s Report
Letter to Dean Rebec Tells
Of Advancement of Great
Slave Lake Lands
That the far north will soon be
no longer far, but just a little
more north than the rest of the
continent, is to be expected in the
very near future, if conditions in
the region of Great Slave lake,
Northwest territory, Canada, are
characteristic of all of northern
Canada. In a letter to Dr. George
Rebec, dean of the graduate
school, C. Bourget, the Indian
agent at Resolution on Great
Slave lake, whom Dean Rebec
met while on his canoe trip with
Amos Burg this summer, tells of
the latest inroads which civiliza
tion has made there.
The coming of mining companies
into the territory is a most con
vincing sign of the approach of
modern civilization, according to
the letter, and airplanes are so
numerous that the Indians don’t
even bother to look at them when
they fly over. The agent has a
radio, receives news bulletins from
the wireless station, gets his mag
azines and papers once a week —
quite an innovation for that part i
of the country. And what is more, |
his mail comes by air.
Comments on the weather in M. j
Bourget’s letter are particularly
apropos at this time. He says, 1
"The weather has been exceeding- i
ly mild until New Year, with an j
average of 10 to 20 above zero, i
