1 VOL. XXXV UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1934 NUMBER 72 Oregon, Husky Swim Squads Will Vie Today Meet in Gerlinger Pool Starts at 3 INVADERS FAVORED Jack Medioa, Anions Outstanding Natators in World, Member Of Washington Team The University of Washington swimming team, headed by one of the world’s outstanding free styl ists, Jack Mediea, invades the campus today for a match with the Webfoot mermen. The meet, which will start at 3 o'clock in the Gerlinger swimming pool, is free to the public. The visitors are confident that with three sure firsts from Medi ca’s ability, they can walk away with the meet. The Washington star is a record holder in several long-distance events, is sure to swim in the 440 yard free style. He will probably take part in the 220-yard event, and in either a re lay, backstroke, or 100-yard free style. stars .Numerous, Although the Italian swim streak is the Huskies’ trump card, they have several others to help gather in first, second, and third places. Chief of these is Pete Dix. The tall lad has been churning the water in almost record-breaking time in the backstroke, and may be pushed to a new Coast record. Gus Erickson is a breast stroker of no little ability, and is being counted on for a first by Husky supporters. Two more free stylists make up the front line of the Husky swim mers. Clarence Page, captain, and Chuck Mucha, ex-gridster, will probably cavort in the shorter dis tances, although their chances here are problematical. Hurley De Roin takes care of the diving du ties, aided by Eddie Clinton. Both are football men. Huskies Favored Although predictions seem to give the meet to the invaders, the Webfoots are far from out of the running. Mike Hoyman, coaching the Oregon team for the first time, has excellent prospects with which to build a winning combination. In the free style sprints Wally Hug, dependable letterman, holds forth. Hug swam in the Oregon Canada meet and performed well. Hoyman is counting on a first as the big fellow’s contribution. Aid ing Hug is Neufert Newport, who may win up a second or third place. Webfoot Stars Veterans Bob Needham and Francis Og lesby, Webfoot co-captains, have been assigned the task of compet ing with Medica in the 220-yard and 440-yard free style races. Both of these have had two year’s var (Continued on Pag? Four) Conklin Will Be Fornm Leader at Wesley Club Dr. Edmund S.

Katherine Hepburn, Miriam Hopkins, Helen Hayes and Lillian Gish were the actresses who have returned to Broadway with out standing successes. Hepburn is playing in "The Lake" which is a tragic, character-development piece. Two veteran actresses make Miss Hepburn’s role appear to disadvantage. Mrs. Shumaker said the actress expressed it ‘•Lousy," but the critics were less harsh. The most outstanding plays on Broadway are both written by Eu gene O'Neill. "Days Without End” is a new modern miracle play. It has one of O'Neill’s fa mous masked personalities, the principal character, John Loving, having his own personality and a character showing his baser self. The rest of the players hear Lov ing, the baser personality, but . think the voice comes from John. ; “Days Without End" is also a new book on the library rent shelf and ' on the High Hat shelf at the Co | op.

A MacCaffery Fall So Low? But He’s a Philosopher, Sir By SIMON LEGREE In ancient times, none of the Clan MacCaffery ever served an other. Rather laird sat at his festive board and drank to Scot land’s fairest. Wh'en Walter MacCaffery, sen ior in _historyt was cast as the philosophical. Crichton-like butler in “Four-Flushers,” to be pre sented free of admission at Guild theater at 4 o'clock Tuesday aft ernoon, the thrushes on the laurel tree growing on a grave at Kin loch Rannoch fluttered excitedly from their perches as the tree swayed beneath them. Little did they know that the bones of Laird Angus Walter MacCaffery stirred uneasily. But could the MacCaffery have lived again and listened to the de lightful lines of his great-great great grandson, the laird might have slapped the scabbard of his old sword with some enthusiasm. Not unknown to Oregon audi ences is Charlotte Eldridge, who, as Muriel Cunningham, plays op posite dashing Dan Clark, the ver satile sports writer-tap dancer beau monde son of Dan E. Clark of the University faculty, type cast as Dulaney, the philanderer. Miss Eldridge's performance is not unlike that of Maude Adams in her famous title role, "L’Aig lon,” or Geraldine Farrar as Car m e n. Unfortunately, however, "Four-Flushers” gives Miss Eld ridge no opportunity to sing. Gwendolyn Caverhill, who spent her girlhood in Canada among the picturesque Doukhoubers, has per formed creditably in a number of studio productions. Her resem blance to the late Renee Adoree, of the films, is remarkable. She displays her charming versatil ity as "Mrs. Van Vleet, of New port" - and One Hundred and Forty-third street. Miss Ida Markusen, director of "Four-Flushers," had little to say of John Patric, playing Henry Cunningham, cuckold husband of Muriel. Said she, “He’s just a tramp, who wandered onto the set one day and wouldn't leave until we’d given him a part."

He swam the race in 4:48, shattering the official record of 4:55, by a shade under six seconds. The two teams ended the meet in a deadlock, with the score tied at 42 points. The Huskies meet the Webfoots in Eugene tomorrow afternoon.

Inlctitiiui of Traditions Court Found Advisory Mora Than Enforcing The court of traditions will not attempt to enforce the tra ditions regarding the wearing earrings and high heels and smoking on the campus by wo men, but will leave the matter up to the individual sororities | to enforce them or not as they see fit, according to Neal Bush, chairman of the newly recreat ed court. The court was not organized as enforcement body, but will merely decide which traditions are desirable and should be maintained. It will recommend that the houses act in maintain ing traditions but will not have any part in actually punishing offenders. Webfoots Trounce Invading Vandals By Score of 43-29 University Hoopsters Outplay Visitors To Pull Out of Cellar; Willie Jones Scores 10 Points By BILL EBERHART Climbing' out of cellar position in flashy style, the Webfoot basket ball machine overpowered and outran the invading Vandals last night, 43 to 29. Oregon led throughout, and Reinhart used an entire second team in the closing minutes of the tilt. By virtue of last night's victory, Oregon is now tied with Idaho for the dubious honors of third place in northern division rankings, relegating the Cougars back to the bottom spot. The fourth position will be determined in tonight’s contest, starting at 7:30. For the first two minutes of last night's game, the Ducks worked with accurate precision, dropping in three short shots as a result of a trio of perfect block plays. Idaho took time out, and when play Whiskerino Hop Slated for Friday In Gerlinger Hall Burr’s ‘Carloca Band’ to Furnish Music for Annual Affair; Tickets on Sale Monday Tickets for the Whiskerino Shuffle, to be given by the sopho more class Friday evening, Feb ruary 16, in Gerlinger hall, will go on sale Monday in all men's living organizations. Although the dance in previous years has been closed to all but second year students, it will be an all-campus affair ihis year, members of the sopho more class decided at a meeting several weeks ago. The Shuffle will be the climax to the two weeks' beard-growing contest among the sophomore men. To fit in with this idea, a barn dance motif, with informality as the key, will be used in decora tions. According to an announcement made last night by Bill Paddock, general chairman of the dance, costumes will not be in order. Campus clothes, with the addition of straw hats, bright shirts, neck erchiefs, and hair-ribbons, will be appropriate. Sherwood Burr's "Carioca Band" will furnish music for the occa sion. Numerous features will be presented. Prizes for the whisker contest are two razor sets, two neckties, and a pair of suspenders.

But Gib Olinger soon cut loose for a long shot and made it good. Lefty Naslund made it seven for Idaho with a southpaw pivot shot, but Bud Jones converted after Geraghty fouled him, put ting the Webfoots two' points ahead. Robertson made good a pair of tries from the gift line on Wally Geraghty’s foul, Berg dropped in a long one, and Willie Jones followed in Bud Jones’ try from the free throw line for an other two points, to leave the Vandals behind, 15 to 7. Geraghty Is Jerked Harold Klumb was roughed twice in succession by Jack Rob ertson, who later was ejected with four personals, and converted two out of the three awarded tries. Robertson countered with a point on W. Geraghty's foul, and Bud Jones plowed through the Vandal defense for a neat short, making the count 18 to 9. With three fouls chalked up against him, Wally Geraghty was jerked by Coach Fox, and Vic Warner was sent into the fray. Howard Grenier, the Vandals’ “king-kong" center, followed up a long try and batted it in. Klumb picked up a point from the Santa Claus line, and Naslund scored from afield, to bring the Idaho count to 14. Ducks Go to Town Olinger called a time-out and Glen Sanford replaced Jack Rob ertson. Warner poked in a short for Idaho, and Oregon proceeded to go to town, running up nine points in the last three minutes of the first half. Olinger scored on a fast cut and a long pass from Berg; W. Jones knocked in a short; Watts, sub for B. Jones, scored from the corner; W. Jones got a point on Fisher’s foul, and Berg polished off the first period with a swishing long shot after the gun popped. It counted, how ever, for the ball was in the mid dle of its trip when timer Max Rubenstein pulled the trigger, making the score 27 to 1C for the home folks. Idaho garnered four points at the beginning of the second period on a pair of conversions and one of Naslund’s left-handed poke shots. Oregon came back with three, when Berg dropped one from the gift line and followed this with a short on a pounding break for the hoop with a pass (Continued on Pai/e Three) Landye Shifts Views; Seeks Compulsory Tax for Dejicit By VIRGINIA SCOVILLE | The law school yesterday dis covered that it had been nursing a traitor in its bosom. Not once, but twice, has the peace and quiet of its sanctified atmosphere been disturbed by inward battle. After the law school student body meet ing Friday morning, the conflict grew warm enough to cause every would-be lawyer to brush the legal dust from his eyes and, referring of course to Code 101-B, survey the rebel with judicial glances. James T. Landye, third year law student, who was the fearless lead er of the interests which desired optional payment of A.S.U.O. fees, is the knave who stood up in the meeting and performed a com plete about-face, now advocating compulsory assessment for mem bers of the law school student body, assenting, and non-assenting, in order to cover the deficit of the law school dance. Not content with this startling announcement, he went on to make a stirring speech which exactly repudiated his formerly avowed belief in the rights of individualism. Landye proposed that each stu dent be taxed to make up the def icit from the law-school dance, de spite the fact that some of the members did not even attend. In Friday’s speech he completely ig nored his former statements which centered around the idea that stu dents should not be compelled to pay for non-educational functions. His first evidence of betrayal was at a meeting before the dance, at which he made a heavily legal ap peal, as only lawyers can, for a compulsory tax which would pay for, or help pay for, the dance. The only difficulty was that the audi ence was composed of fellow-law yers, who were also wise in the waysi of court appeals. It was the law-school dance, say his contemporaries, sadly, which started Landye on the downward path.
