Game, Benefit of Foreign
Students, Draws Many
Displaying- real basketball only
in the closing minutes of the
game, the Oregon basketball team
was defeated last night, 49 to 43,
by the DeNeffe five, composed
mostly of ex-Oregon hoop stars.
, The Webfoot team was trailing
23 to 19 at half time, and soon
started an offensive that tied the
score at 34-all. Gordon Ridings,
t. however, soon sank a couple of
beauties that put his team in the
lead, where' they remained until
the final gun.
Hidings Mainstay
The mainstay of the DeNeffe
attack was the high point man of
the game, Ridings. He scored a
total of 19 points with seven field
goals and five free throws. Scott
Milligan, also of the winning
team, took second honors ‘ with
four field goals and three free
throws, totaling 11 points. Her
mit Stevens was high point man
for the Lemon and Green with
nine tallies, <
In the closing minutes of play
Oregon, led by Jean Eberhart and
Harold Olinger, staged a rally
which for a brief time threatened ;
the DeNeffe lead. Ridings, how
ever, sank the needed baskets and
the rally was cut short.
Webfoots Listless
, Eleven men saw action for the
* Oregon team, with Bill Keenan,
Hank Levoff, Hermit Stevens,
Jean Eberhart, and Cliff Horner
taking the lead in the offensive.
The play of the Webfoots in the
first half seemed weakened, as if
they were tired of the game.
This game is the last game to
be played this season and today
the Oregon team will turn in its
suits and take a well-earned rest.
The program at the Igloo last
night was under the sponsorship
of the local service clubs and was
held for the benefit of the Inter
national bouse. In the neighbor

Tuberculosis Sanitarium
Enrolls Thirteen in
“We have numbers of unusual
people on our registers, but per
haps our moot unusual students
are the 13 members of the San
Study club,” said Miss Mozelle
Hail, head of the correspondence
department of the University ex
tension division.
The Sim Study club, according
to Miss Hair, is composed of a
constantly varying group of pa
tients in the state tuberculosis
sanitarium at Salem, who are re
cuperating from tuberculosis un
der the supervision of Dr. George
It is Dr. Bellinger’s idea that it
i aids his patients to recover their
health to occupy their minds with
some worth-while study. Accord
ingly, interested patients founded
the San Study club, the members
of which are enrolled students in
the University of Oregon corre
spondence division. Only the oth
er day Miss Hair received a letter
from the secretary of the club en
closing the names of five more pa
tient-students, increasing the roll
of active members to 13. There
have been 98 members of this
study club since it was founded a
number of years ago. The state
library furnishes the patients with
all needed books, and a number
4 of them have graduated from the
correspondence school.

Courses at U. of Hawaii
Open to Oregonians
June 25 has been definitely set
as the date of the summer session
Hawaiian cruise, according to Al
fred Powers, dean of the extension
division. The group will be taken
to Vancouver, B. C., by special
traiii and will sail from that port
on the S. S. Niagara of the Can
adian Pacific line.
Because of the long stay on the
Islands, made possible by this
booking, students will be permit
ted to enter almost all courses in
the summer session of the Univer
sity of Hawaii, Dean Powers says.
The extension division is still
being deluged with inquiries con
cerning the Hawaiian and Alaskan
cruises. It has been found, to the
surprise of the division faculty,
that nearly 20 per cent of the re
turns from an announcement in
the Normal Instructor-Primary
Plans were children.
one would think, judging from
the number of juvenile inquiries
that the summer sessions office is
headquarters for the distribution
of Alaskan and Hawaiian pictures
to the geography students of the
entire United States,” stated Dean
Powers. A few said they wanted
pictures to illustrate their geog
raphy, but most of them betrayed
their youthfulness only by hand
writing and language. Two or
three envelopes were addressed to
the “Alfred Powers University,”
and many contained requests for
“two informations,” “a free book
lets,” “pictures of the nat’l park”
— and all had the additional warn
ing, “and send it in a hurry.”
One little boy in Furport, Wash
ington, wrote in an unusually
clear childish hand, according to
Miss Mary E. Kent, extension di
vision secretary: “Will you send
me this book. We have not many
books and would be glad if you
would send it. I am in a rural
school. I am in the fourth grade.
We would like to read it in school.”

Extension Division Serves
1532 Adult Citizens
According to figures received by
Miss Mozelle Hair, head of the
University correspondence divi
sion, Oregon holds a remarkably
high place among states which
lead in adult education. At pres
ent, one in every 589 persons is
taking a correspondence course.
Bulletins from the extension di
visions of Massachusetts and Min
nesota, two very progressive
states in this field, says Miss Hair,
show that Massachusetts during
1929 enrolled 4,676 correspondence
students, and Minnesota enrolled
1,944. In 1929 the University of
Oregon enrolled 1,532 correspond
ence students.
By a comparison of enrollments
according to population, Oregon
was far in advance, for Minnesota
had one person in every 1,400 en
rolled, knd Massachusetts only one
in every 917, to Oregon’s 589.

Lowdown on French Play
Disclosed by Cast’s Director
“Leopold, le Bien-aime,” the
the play to be presented Friday
and Saturday nights by the French
department, is rapidly rounding
into shape, according to Louis
Myers, who is directing it.
“At lea3t,” said Mr. Myers, "I
imagine I should say it is round
ing rapidly into shape. Isn’t that
the stock formula?” He wasn't
very serious. It developed that
he had just eaten a good meal,
and that Art Grey had finally
learned a whole sentence in
“You know,” said the director,
“either of those things is enough
to make me happy, but both of
them together is in the nature of
a deluge of good things. The
funny part of it all is," he went
on, "that Art doesn’t know any
French, and he has had to learn
his whole part from sound. And
don't think that isn’t hard.
“The rest of them," he went on,
"haven’t had the same trouble
that Art has. It’s hard to learn
French that’s not only good
French but intelligible from the
audience, and that’s what we’re
trying to do; but at least it isn’t
as hard as learning phonetic
“I don’t know just what this
bunch is going to do to Leopold,”
he said. "It’s a play I’ve wanted to
do ever since it was presented in
Paris, but I've always hesitated a

Moving Finger
500-1 RATIO DEFEATED . . j
Nomination of candidates for
student office, other than on the
floor of the nominating assembly,
almost vanished from the range
of possibilities when nomination
procedure was discussed by the
constitutional revision committee.
Nomination by petition was made
almost prohibitive with thfe sug
gested requirement that 500 sig
natures be required before a can
didate’s name be placed on the
* * *
Whatever the purpose was for
so penalizing the late nominee,
that penalty was in the ratio of
500 to 1. One person may nom
inate another in the student as
sembly at the end of the year,
while, immediately after the
nominations are closed, 500
would be required. Five hun
dred names of persons who
would be willing to sign suclv
a petition would insure election.
• * *
Whatever the political science
professors may say about the case
of gaining signatures for petitions,
University students dislike to put
their names on paper. It may be
that foreign scholars, question
naires, tag days, dime crawls,
Oreganas, and all, mean money,
and that most of them require
signatures. This is almost certain
—those 500 names would mean
• * *
Although the 500-name pro
ponents are dissatisfied, or so
they seem since the matter was
revived after once having been
decided, the general committee
set on a much lower figure, 50.
They felt that there could be
no more abuse of the privilege
of nomination by petition than
by the present method of nom
ination from the floor.
* * •
Class elections will follow the
same general plan as the student
elections. Here the number re
quired will be 25. Either require
ment means more required than
the members of one organization,
yet both correct the faults of a
too early closing of nominations
by presidents, or the failure of
nominating speakers to appear.
Infirmary Population
• Gradually Increases
The infirmary was practically
empty over the week-end, but it

present, there are nine under its

Those now on the sick list are:
