Last year Oregon surprised ev
erybody and beat Washington
State in two successive games at
McArthur court. This week-end
they're going to try to do it all
over again. The first chance comes
tonight, when the Webfoots and
Cougars meet at 7:30 o’clock.
The Washington State quintet,
coached by Jack Friel, invades
Eugene as the favorite. Along
with Washington and Oregon
State it has been picked as possi
ble northwestern division cham
pion. Last year when it visited
Eugene it was leading the league,
but two defeats by the Webfoots
halted their march to the crown.
Watch Mr. Gordon
The Cougars have the edge in
pre-season encounters and on the
basis of a split series with the
strong Oregon State team. The
Webfoots ended a California barn
storming trip with around a .500
average, but dropped three out of
four to the Ashland Normal school
quintet.
Leading the invaders is Capt.
Huntly Gordon, all-coast center,
and leading scorer of the confer
ence last year. He will be opposed
by Cap Roberts, Oregon’s leader
and pivot man, who held down the
tall Cougar center in every game
last year.
Another star of the visiting
team is Roland Johnson, sopho
more forward, receiving consider
able attention because of his abil
ity to sink long baskets. Other
stars of the Cougars are Bobby
Cross, forward; Ken Wills, speedy
guard, and Rex Scott, guard on
last year’s squad.
Kermit Stevens Out
Oregon will be handicapped by
the injury Kermit Stevens, two
year letterman forward, and Ed
Kunkle, sophomore forward. Both
men are laid up with bad knees
and will not be able to play until
Oregon meets Washington next
week.
Bill Reinhart had not definitely
decided just what combination he
would start tonight, but indicated
that it would likely include Spook
Robertson and Jim Watts, for
wards; Roberts, center, and Gib
Olinger and either Hank Simons
or Bob Miller, guards. This is the
same lineup that faced Ashland in
the final game last week.
Olinger To Start
Olinger is expected to furnish
some much-needed punch into the
Oregon lineup. His speed and
fight more than make up for his

ington State’s Cougars at McArthur court tonight. Third leading
scorer of the northern division last year, Roberts is a candidate for
all-coast honors.
RUTH DUPUIS DIES

WAS ACTIVE HERE
Journalism Sophomore Succumbs
To Pneumonia; Was Emerald,
Oregana Worker
Miss Ruth Dupuis, sophomore in
journalism, died yesterday at her
home, 1672 Twenty-sixth avenue
east, after an illness of slightly
more than two weeks.
*
Miss Dupuis was a member and
vice-president of Zeta Tau Alpha,
and a member of both the Emer
ald and Oregana staffs. She was
also known to many students as
an assistant in the reserve room
of the main library. She was ac
tive in Philomelete hobby group
work, and was among the under
graduate women ^recently honored
by invitations to the Theta Sigma
Phi Matrix Table dinner.
Miss Dupuis, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Dupuis of Eu
gene, graduated in 1930 from Eu
gene high school, where she was
active in dramatics.
Death was caused by pneumonia
and influenza. Funeral arrange
ments have been committed to the
care of the Veatch chapel. An
nouncement of the tifiie will be
made tomorrow.
Technocracy Now Universal
Declares Calvin Crumbaker
(Editor’s Note: This is the sec
ond of a series of articles by
Mr. Bellinger on technocracy.)
By CJALVIN CRUMBAKER
(As told to Jack Bellinger)
“Technocracy! What is it ?
Like all other persons interest
ed in human welfare the student
of economic science wishes he
knew. The idea is interesting, the
term fascinating. For once, an
idea based upon the gloomy science
has captured the popular imagina
tion. Conclusions of economic
questions are ordinarily reached
by students after long periods of
sustained labor, mental or other
wise. Technocracy slips up behind
you, and before you are aware of
its existence, it administers a sed
ative to your judgment and a fil
lip to your imagination and away
you go. In this game- the “high
brow" vies with the “low brow"
and the usually thorough scholar
competes with a member of the
“intelligentsia” on equal footing.
So far the connotations of the
term must suffice for information
concerning its tenets and theories.
Already disputes have arisen over
the paternity of the idea. The doc
trine has not been sufficiently de
veloped to permit disputes over its
content. The paucity of informa
tion available on the subject seems
to indicate that there was a “leak”
in the publicity department, and
tha£ the term slipped out before
the sponsors were ready with ful
ly developed theories. What a
gold mine it would have been to
have had a few volumes of authen
tic technocratic exposition in the
hands of experienced book agents
about the time the term exploded
a few weeks ago. How many col
lege men and women could have
“worked their way through school”
with a territory in which to sell
books as good as money in the
I bank.
But today students are as much
in the dark as ever upon the prac
tical suggestions to be offered by
proponents. After several weeks,
during which time the term has

SCABBARD-BLADE
WILL MEET TODAY
TO MAKE DECISION
Formal Banquet May Be Given in
Place of Military Ball; To
Consider Awards
_ .
Decisions on several things oi
campus-wide interest, are to be
made today at a meeting of Scab
bard and Blade, national militarj
honor society, to be held at J
o’clock in the R. O. T. C. barracks
According to Marshall Wright
treasurer of the organization, it is
probable that a formal banquet
will be held this year instead ol
the traditional military ball. This
change is necessary because of the
University^ demand for expense
cutting.
The subject of medals which are
to be awarded to underclass mili
tarj’ students for meritorious worl
will be discussed, and the time anc
basis of selection of new men fot
the society will undergo considera
tion.
Frosh Cabinet Makes
Plans for Apple Sale
The frosh cabinet of the Y. W
C. A. met at the “Y” bungalov
at 430 yesterday and discussee
plans for the freshman apple sale
It was decided that the apple
sale should be held Wednesdaj
and Thursday, January 25 and 26
Candied apples will be sold in al
living organizations and on the
campus for 10 cents apiece.

r\LD STUDENTS who are
” paying their fees on the
installment plan must pay the
balance of their $38 by Febru
ary 4 instead of paying for it
in three installments, as was
stated by the Emerald yester
day.
New students, who have in
addition to the $38 a $10 de
posit that is refunded at the
end of the year, must also have
paid in $38 by February 4, and
will pay the balance of $10 by
February 18.

Dr. Moore Is
Offered Japan I
Professorship:

TO CONTINUE STUDY
—
Dr. and Mrs. Moore Will Leave

For Tolioku University
_ . j
By ANN-REED BURNS
Dr. A. R. Moore, professor of
general physiology at the Univer
sity of Oregon, ha's been offered
by the Rockefeller Foundation for
Medical Research a visiting pro
fessorship at the Imperial univer
sity at Sendai, Japan.
The professorship covers the pe
riod from April 1, 1933 to July 1,
1934. Expenses of both Dr. and
Mrs. Moore to Japan and back
will be paid, and while teaching
there they will be official guests i
of the Japanese government.
Dr. Moore will teach an expe
rimental embryology and the phy
siology of the nervou3 system, giv
ing two lectures and two labora
tories a week. He will teach in
the graduate school of the Impe
rial university and during the
summer quarter at the university’s
new marine biological station.
Will Do Research
Dr. Moore’s comparatively small
teaching schedule will enable him
to do a great- deal of research
along the same lines in which he
has been working ever since his
coming to the University of Ore
gon in 1926—the development of
marine forms. Recently he has ex
perimented much with marine
biology, especially with the sand
dollar, starfish, and sea urchin.
Dr. Moore is known internation
ally for his research in marine
biology, and since 1926 has been
a lecturer at the Hopkins marine
station of Stanford university at
Pacific Grove, Cal., where he
spends his vacations. He has been
employed at the University of Ore
gon since 1926, and at present, i
due to- the shifting of the science
schools, he is teaching at Corval
lis and conducting his research
here.
Applies for Leave
Dr. Moore has applied to the
board of higher education for a
year’s leave of absence without
pay, and if it is granted, he and j
Mrs. Moore will leave the United j
States the last of March, at the
end of winter term. His work at i
Sendai is to begin April 15.
The professorship offered Dr. j
Moore is one of several established j
in Japan six year ago by t he
Rockefeller foundation. They are

be neglected.
Tryouts Held at
Guild Yesterday
Play tryouts, sponsored by the
drama department under the aus
pices of Mrs. Ottilie SeyboU, were
held in Guild theatre yesterday
afternoon. Members of National
•Collegiate Players, drama honor
ary, and students who have had
considerable experience under Mrs.
Seybolt, aided her in selecting the
casts.
Approximately 45 students
turned out for the tryouts. Each
one was given the opportunity to
reveal his talent through impro
visations and the reading of lines.
Parts for four plays will be as
signed and published some time
next week. The plays will be pro
duced in Guild theatre in the near
future and will be open to the
public free of charge.

Emerald Must Operate on Limited
Schedule, Declares Stoddard;
Hall Declines Comment
1 mcrald Dilemma
1. Judlc ary body decides that
four day paper is unconstitu
tion il.
2. Gr luate manager's office
declares that it will keep on
four-day basis.
3. Post office department de
nies paper to mails unless
reclassified.
4. Hall declines to make state
ment.
5. Business manager refuses
funds for regular Saturday
edition.
By BARNEY CLARK
Fresh fuel was added to a burn
ing question last night, when the
judiciary committee handed down
a decision that the executive
council’s reduction of the Emerald
to a four-day-a-week schedule was
unconstitutional. The members
of the committee: Orlando John
Hollis (substituting for Dean
Morse, who is ill), Virgil D. Earl,
and Earl M. Pallett, were unani
mous in their interpretation of the
word “daily” as meaning at least
five times a week.
The legal aspect of the decision
was bolstered by Dean Wayne L.
Morse, of the law school, who con
curred in the opinion. The deci
sions in a number of law cases
were used as a background for
i their conclusion.
I Tom Stoddard, representing the
I graduate manager’s office in Hugh
Rosson's absence, declared last
night that the Emerald must meet
the budget set. down for it. The
budget has been drawn for four
issues a week, and his decision
makes it impossible to print five
editions a week.
Warning came from the post
office department yesterday that
the Emerald would be denied ad
mittance to the mails unless it was
reclassified to conform to its new
publication dates. Such applica
tion with a fee of $10 must be re
mitted to the postoffice in order
to continue publication. The mast
. head of the paper must be
changed also to conform to the
new schedule.
The exact status of the Emer
ald had not- been determined at a
late hour last night. As the exe
cutive council, highest executive
body of the A. S. U. O., had pro
ceeded in violation of the consti
tution, a vote of the student body
will probably be necessary to de
termine the question. If the
Emerald appears on a four-day
basis, it is in express contradiction
to the constitution; and if it
comes out five times a week it is
in direct defiance of the dictates
of the executive council.
As a matter of policy, and in
view of the profit turned in by the
Emerald last term, the editor
asked Harry Schenk, business
| manager, for money to publish the
' regular Saturday edition. Schenk,
I however, declined to act in Ros
son’s absence.
S. S. Smith and lsotoff [Study
Data on Psychological Novel
An historical and critical study
of the psychological novel up to!
the present time is being devel
oped by S. Stephenson Smith, pro
fessor of English, with the assist
ance of Andre Isotoff. The bulk of
the material Mr. Smith has se
cured during the past five years,
and plans to compile in the near
future.
“The novel is said to be the epic
of our day," says Mr. Smith, “but
the ‘comic epic,’ as Fielding called
the novel, has been supplemented,
in the last hundred years, by a
type of fiction which we call psy
chological. By this term, we mean
to indicate fiction which goes be
hind actions and talk, to examine
the motives, portray the inward
aspects of heart and mind.
“The statement is often made
that human nature always remains
the same- although I doubt if
many anthropologists would sub
scribe to this. Certain it is, how
ever, that the readings of human
nature vary from age to age; and
I am concerned in this research in
trying to find how far the novel
ists were influenced by the system
of psychology—or gen e r a 1 i z e d
readings of human nature—which
prevailed in their time.”
In order to make this projected
work of use to a wider circle than
literary historians, Mr. Smith is
including a dictionary of psycho
logical novels since Richardson in
English, French, German, and
Russian. All summaries of the
novels are made from the original
versions.
As a second dictionary appendix,
Mr. Smith and his co-workers are
indexing all the novels of impor
tant writers, such as Stendahl',
Dostoevsky, Henry James, Thom
as Mann, Louis Couperus, Joseph
Conrad, and others under the head
ing “psychological phenomenas il
lustrated in psychological novels.”
When completed, Mr. Smith’s
work will be in three parts: an
historical and critical account of
the development of the psychologi
cal novel; summaries of all the im
