Conference Hoop Season
For Two Quintets To
Open in Seattle
Washington Heavy Favorite
To Take Fourth Title
In Row This Year
With one aim ahead of them,
victory, ten Webfoot hoop repre
sentatives, Coach Bill Reinhart,
and Senior Manager Norman East
man, comprising a party of bas
keteering invaders, left for the
stronghold of the Washington
Husky last night at Seattle, to vie
in the first conference struggle of
^ the season.
Determined to squelch the local
ideas that Oregon is “too small,”
Reinhart’s men were cheerfully
hopeful of taking the “Hec” Ed
mundson quintet,* which runs
around the maple court under the
cognomen of Husky, into camp
both Friday and Saturday, if it is
at all possible. Reinhart, himself,
was not so hopeful. The veteran
Webfoot coach, not at all inclined
to be overly pessimistic, was du
bious concerning the first games
of the conference.
Washington's quintet, heavy fa
vorites to cop the Northwest divis
ion title for the fourth time in a
row, is composed of rangy, tali,
experienced men, all of them as
serted to be over six feet. Hank
Swanson, letterman of two seasons,
is taking the pivot position for the
Huskies and is backed up by a
quartet of capable cagers, reports
indicate. They are Swygard, Ful
ler, Cairney and West.
} Just who will start in the lineup
for Oregon had not been announced
last night but it is safe to assume
that Reinhart’s practice lineup,
composed of Jean Eberhart, center;
Vincent Dolp and Winsor Calk
ins, forwards; and Kermit Stevens
and Hank Levoff, guards, will get
Washington has done about as
much in the way of pre-season
games as has Oregon. The Hus
kies have defeated Whitman and
Nebraska in addition to several in
dependent teams while the Web
foots have downed Multnomah
club, and Gonzaga, the latter which
recently beat Jack Friel’s Wash
ington Staters. Game for game
Oregon and Washington are about
evenly matched but team to team
the Huskies have a decided advan
tage in height. What difference
this will make will come to the fore
in the first game. Oregon stands a
y good chance to cop one game if
not both by virtue of conceded
To Try for Cup

To Tell of Flight
Admiral Who Conquered
Antarctic Will Show
New Trip Movies
Scientific research, not mere
picturesque adventure or search
for glory, was the motive behind
the now-famous Byrd Antarctic
expedition, the story of which will
be told in an illustrated lecture
to be given in McArthur court on
Thursday evening, January 15, by
the leader of the expedition, Rear
Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd,
who is to come to Eugene under
the joint auspices of the associ
ated students and the Register
Using three airplanes, as well
as a number of dog team expedi
tions, the Byrd party explored and
observed a total area which, it
superimposed on a map of the
eastern half of the United States,
would extend in a wide belt from
Chesapeake bay westward and
around the head of Lake Michi
gan beyond Duluth, an area em
bracing Virginia, West Virginia,
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and about
half of Iowa, Wisconsin and Min
nesota. Of this area more than
150,000 square miles were surveyed
by aerial camera.
A total distance of 7100 miles
was flown, climaxed on November
29, 1929, when Byrd and three oth
ers made a 1600-mile flight to the
More than 9000 feet of film will
be shown in connection with the

To Meet Editors
FEATURING intimate and
personal talks by members of
the Emerald staff and by pro
fessors of journalism, the seeond
annual “Chatterbox,” sponsored
by Sigma Delta Chi, national
journalism professional frater
nity, will be held this afternoon
at 4:30 in the men's lounge, Ger
The “Chatterbox,” established
last year, endeavors to acquaint
the editors of high school papers
with that environment which, it
is hoped, will later become their
own. It introduces to the high
school delegate some of the op
portunities which are offered in
the school of journalism, both
from the standpoint of work un
der the faculty and from associ
ations with the Emerald.
The program includes talks
from E. VV. Allen, dean of the
school of journalism; Nell Tay
lor, president of the local chap
ter of Sigma Delta Chi; Vinton
Hall, editor of the Emerald;
Tony Peterson, business man
ager of the Emerald; Clare
Vuuse, president of the high
school editorial association, and

Crime Survey in
By Wayne Morse
Report Gives Picture From
Arrests to the Final
The first year’s work on the
Oregon crime survey, conducted
under the direction of Wayne L.
Morse, professor of law, has been
completed and a report will be sub
mitted to the legislature when it
convenes Monday, January 12.
Copies of the survey report are
now being printed and will be plac
ed in the hands of each legislator.
Statistical Study Given
The study involves an analysis
of all felony cases in Multnomah
county during 1927-28 from the
point of arrest to point of final dis
position and gives a statistical pic
ture of what happened to each of
those cases. It compares findings
in the Oregon study with those in
other surveys. It is planned to ex- >
tend the study to other counties
in the state in order to give a
cross-section picture of the dispo
sition of felony cases in the whole
A program for further research
is outlined in the report and the
need of a comprehensive survey of
the administration of criminal jus
tice is discussed.
Professor Morse was assisted in
the survey by Ronald H. Beattie,
No Interpretations Given
Professor Morse emphasized in
an interview that the motivating
purpose of the Oregon crime sur
vey is one of fact-finding' and that
the directors of the survey do not
marshal data in support of or in
opposition to any specific reform.
The interpretations of the data are
left to the reader.
“The moment a research worker
recommends any specific reform,
his views are discredited by those
who are opposed to the reform and
his position of impartiality is
lost,” Mr. Morse said in explaining
The final report consists of more
than 200 pages and will be publish
ed later as a supplement of the
Oregon Law Review.
