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

Students interested in these

Mrs. Shumaker Tells Group
Of Recent Plays, Actresses
Mrs. Kenneth Shumaker, active!
worker in the Very Little Theater;
group, talked informally to the
prose and poetry group of Philo
rneiete hobby club Friday after
noon at 4 o’clock. Mrs. Shumaker
discussed movie actresses who
have returned to the legitimate
stage and several of the recent
New York plays. The group met
in the A. W. S. room of Mary
Spiller hall.
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

Win. East, Law School Graduate,

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."

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

Tickets on Sale Monday
Tickets for the Whiskerino
Shuffle, to be given by the sopho
more class Friday evening, Feb

organizations. Although the dance
in previous years has been closed

it will be an all-campus affair

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.

and a pair of suspenders.
Food Classes to
See Meat Cutting
Foods classes taught by Profes
sor Mabel A. Wood, of the home
economics department, will attend
a meat cutting demonstration to
day in the auditorium of the home
economics school at Oregon State
college.
The class will see a half of beef
cut into the proper pieces for re
tail selling. It is an annual dem
onstration for home economics
students and at the close the girls

cuts.
Students from Oregon who at

was resumed ran up five points
before the Ducks could score. 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

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.
