Ye Ed Sees Coming
W ebfoot-Beaver Tilt
As Potential Dynamite'
... By Ned Simpson.
In yesterday morning’s Oregon
ian Mr. L. H. Gregory speculates
at length on the possible outcome
of the conference basketball race.
In about the middle of his column
he mentions the fact that—should
the Beavers drop a couple of games
during their northern trip, and the
Huskies finish the rest of the sea
son without a setback—Oregon
would be the sole team in the Or
angeman path toward a chance at
a playoff with the Huskies.
* * *
In fact, if Oregon State loses
only one contest between now and
March 2, the date of the fourth
and last VVebfoot battle, it will still
mean that the Beavers will have
to win to elinch the chapionship.
Can you imagine a situation that
packs more potential dynamite?
Traditional rivals anyway, it would
make the feeling between the two
teams just about three times as
tense as usual. And what a crowd
for Messrs, Rosson, Stoddard, and
Schomp to rub their collective
hands over. Oh my, oh my!
* * *
An ordinary Webfoot-Beaver
hoop battle is packed full of more
than the usual thrills, but it posi
tively would be too tough on the
crowd to sit through such a battle
an that would be without dying in
droves of appoplexy and other
high pressure ills.
* * *
If such a game did happen to
develop, it would probably be wise
for the management to hire a cou
ple of new referees—men who live
so far away that they’ve never
heard of either Oregon or Oregon
State. (Even then they’d proba
bly lie mobbed by the losing
bunch). Speaking of referees the
gamp in Corvallis Saturday night
was fairly well handled. There
were plenty of mistakes made by
both Leeding and Mitchell, but
they were made against both teams
and didn’t affect the outcome of
the game very much either way.
* -l- *
Reinhart’s sophomore combina
tion certainly clicked Saturday
night for a while, too. The work
of Lewis and Rourke was out
standing, w'hile Sammy Liebowitz
put on a show that even got a few
cheers from the partisan Beaver
rooters. The only mistake that
Sam made was in losing his tem
per once or twice in an obvious
fashion. Maybe he had good rea
son to get sore, but if he had con
trolled himself he would have got
ten on better all ’round.

Men in Semi-Finals;
Bjork, Mountain, Brooke
The independent Yeomen once
more figured in the spotlight on
the intramural stage yesterday
after winning three matches and
losing none in the first round of the
annual wrestling slate. As a result
of the grappling success, the in- j

total of seven mne into the semi

The Betas, who have long topped
the all-year race,and the S.P.E.’s,

victories have no semi-final en
trants, while the Hilyard street
house sends only one man, Del
Bjork, into the second round.

:he meeting, but seemingly took
malicious delight in breaking
across the top of your paper the
"act that only 20 attended.
As a former student of the school
if journalism, I am dismayed and
iisgusted at the news and editorial
iractices to which one of its mem
bers has descended. Not only was
the Saturday story replete with
distortion and misrepresentation,
out it was characterized by out
right falsehood of the most malic
ous type. The particulars of these
falsehoods you are well aware of.
Dick Neuberger was editor of
the Emerald two years ago. He
was mixed up in more fights and
orusades than you ever dreamed
of; yet no one ever accused him of
descending to lies and half-truths.
1 regret the same cannot be said
of the present editor.
Stephen B. Kahn.
Editor, the Emerald:
I was one of those present at Fri
day night's meeting to discuss the
optional fee situation. I read your
account of the meeting in Satur
day's Emerald. It was a deliberate
and malicious distortion of fact,
ond false and vicious in the state
ments it attributed to Dick Neu
berger. You apparently resorted
to what I have heard is a common
practice of the Hearst papers—us
ing disjointed excerpts from some
one’s speech, the meaning of which
would be entirely changed by tell
ing what actually was said. Evi
dently some Hearst practices were
absorbed when the editor took his
trip at Mr. Hearst’s expense last
Ever since Dick Neuberger first
started his fight for the needy stu
dents on the campus, few despica
ble methods have been barred in
the attempts to persecute him. The
student corporation people, whom
you apparently represent when you
edit their publication, have not had
the courage and intelligence to
fight Neuberger and his followers
with facts, as honorable men. The
distortions and falsehoods in Sat
u day’s Emerald were the most ma
licious of this type I yet have seen.
As one of the speakers at the
meeting, and an advocate of op
tional ASL'O membership, I charge
the Emerald with deliberately at

minting falsehoods about our meet

Caldwell, Capulo, Colik
Last week the committee in
charge of the Yeomen smoker was
in a dilemma trying to find an op
ponent to swap punches in the main
event with Joe Bradshaw, law stu
dent, and this week the commit
tee is trying to determine just
what man to use against him from
a list of five of the Pacific coast’s
leading simon-pures who have ex
pressed their willingness to slug
it out with the Eugene fighter.
Larry Caputo, hard hitting Port
land light-heavyweight, and con
tender in the 1932 Olympic games,
seems very anxious to get the
choice. Wilmer Tucker, northwest
middlweight champion, who fought
Bradshaw here last October stated
he would appreciate this opportun
ity for a rematch. Kenny Robert
son, slim Oregon City boxer who is
credited with a win over Bill Spid
ers, Seattle's Pacific coast, welter
weight champion, claims he has
been looking forward to a battle
with Joe for the past year.
Two other scrappers, Frankie
Caldwell, 1932 Pacific coast mid
dleweight champion, and who two
years ago punched out a close vic
tory over the University barrister
and Eddie Golik, well known Mult
nomah club fisticuffer and present
undisputed middleweight champion
of the coast, have also accepted
the offer to fill in the main event.

committee of Virgil Esteb, Tom

an ace from the pack. One of the
members suggested yesterday that

Another Meet Is Scheduled
For This Weekend
Saturday afternoon on Hayward
field the third inter-squad track
meet of the year was run off with
several fast times being recorded.
A light rain hampered proceedings
to some extent, but cleared before
the last two races were run. An
other meet will be held this Satur
day, with jumpers and pole vault
ers seeing action for the first time.
The first of three sparkling per
formances came when Bud Shoe
make, northwest sprint champ,
turned in a 0:14.8 150-yard dash.
This is exceptionally fast for this
early in the season and augurs well
for the future. The second fast
time was turned in by George
Scharpf in the 660, which he nego
tiated in 1:23.4. The best previous
time for the season was turned in
by him last week in 1:26.3. Percy
Freeman got a fast start in the
220-yard dash, managed to keep
Eihead of Schultz for 150 yards, and
finished going away in the good
time of 0:22.9 seconds. All these
races were for varsity track men.
Frosh and intramural runners
turned in fair but not startling
performances in their events.
