Wednesday morning we came
out saying that we were in favor of
doing away with fall term volley
ball for another term of donut
Since then we learn from a
couple of the members of the intra
mural board that volleyball is a
very necessary part of one’s edu
cation, indicating that that is the
reason that volleyball is on the
intramural slate.
Now this was not our Impres
sion. The intramural program, ac
cording to our interpretation, was
for the recreation of the students,
with the I*E classes being for the
students’ education.
* * *
For a ruling on this disagree
ment, we dug up an intramural
handbook, which in article one of
the regulations listed says:
Intramural sports at tile Univer
sity of Oregon are organized as
one of the functions of the depart
ment for men in the school of
physical education. It is recognized
as one of the duties of this depart
ment to encourage the men of the
student body to participate in or
ganized athletic sports and intra
mural competitive games.
Nothing in it about education as 1
far as I can see.
Besides if volleyball is a neces
sary part of one’s education, why
not make it compulsory like Eng
lish composition ?
* * *
It is granted that volleyball is
one of the better sports for busi
ness men to relax with after the
years have added their toll around ,
the waistline.
However, will the group of tired
business men that our man X is '
trying to break in with play such
a fast or superior brand of volley
ball as to prohibit its learning?
Still another thought is to put
vollcylmll on the spring donut pro
gram when softball, the other
sport, is played outside, thus leav
ing the inside courts free.
The most logical objection to
having two successive terms of
basketball is that the participants
will be ovcr-baskctballed. This ob
jection, however, holds no water
when one remembers that fall
term basketball would be over by
the first of December, and not
start until five weeks later.
Under the two-term plan, donut
basketball interest could be in
creased by grading the different
leagues, making each league more
closely contested.
The first term would be played
just as it is now.
Tnen for the second term the
top five teams would then be put
in the same league. The winner
of this league would then win the
school championship.
For example, (his term, under
the proposed setup, would see the
ATOs, Sammies, riii Dells, jphi
Sigs, and Stgnia Chis all in one
league. These teams were all
ehanips In their respective leagues.
In the same way all the second
place clubs would be put in a sec
ond league. All the third place
clubs would be put in a third
league, and so on.
It seems to us tfiat this method
of handling the play would make
for more interest competition with
no overwhelming scores being run
up as under the present system.

Phi Delta Theta gave the Alpha

quarter yesterday, but the “azure
blue and gold" turned on the pres
sure to crush the boys from the
barn, 33 to 17 in a playoff game.
Morgan, Phi Delt, took the ball
from the center tip-off, romped up
the floor and dumped it in to start
things off. Karstens promptly re
peated for ATO, and it was two-all
with five seconds gone.
Shipley dumped in two to send
the Phi Delts into the lead, but
Morgan, Stafford and Dunn all
counted for ATO. Holmes dropped
in a long howitzer to tie the score
at the end of the quarter, eight-all.
At the half it was 16 to 11 for
the ATOs.
ATOs Turn On Heat
In the third quarter the ATOs
turned on the heat, and ran away
from the barn boys. They swished
the net for 11 points, meanwhile
holding the Phi Delts to one lone
some tally, a free throw by Ship
With the game in the bag, ATO
eased off in the fourth quarter.
Morgan dropped in a pair of field
goals, but Holmes followed with a
setup for the Phi Delts. Shipley
looped a howitzer, and sank a free
throw to end the Phi Delt scoring,
and Karstens finished it off with
a setup at the end of the game.

over Phi Gamma Delta to keep
their slate clean in a playoff tilt
Led by Jack Hodgen and Bill
Van Dusen, they took an early ad
vantage, and were leading at the
quarter, eight to five. The Fijis
came back with a rush, and moved
into an eight-all tie, but it was
short lived. A basket by Van Du
sen and a gift shot by Clifford
gave the Sigma Nus an 11 to 8
advantage at the half
Norm Rankin came in at center
for the Fijis and practically stop
ped the game by committing three
personals in a little more than a
minute, and thereby sounded the
keynote for the second half.
Wild Scramble
Every so often the ball would
r611 out of the wild scramble of
players, and someone would throw
it into the hoop. Jack Hodgen and
Clifford teamed for eight points,
and sent the Sigma Nus into a 21

The last quarter calmed down
a little, with players hanging on
the edge of ejection from the
game. Frantic Fiji substitutes fail
ed to penetrate the Sigma Nu de
fense, and they gathered only two
points on a long howitzer by Davis.
The Fijis meanwhile penetrated
the demoralized Fijis for 8 more
points to ice the game.

REG CARRINGTON: I see you're a
steady Camel smoker, Commander.
There really isn’t any difference
in cigarettes, is there?”
wrong, Reg. The life of a deep-sea diver is
tougher on a man than most work. Most of
the divers 1 know are steady Camel smokers
and, believe me, they know there's a difference.
Take my own case, for example. I stick to
Camels — have smoked them for ten years.
They never get on my nerves. Smoking
Camels, I feel that I enjoy life more. Camel
is the cigarette that agrees with me.'’
CLUB-ROOM CONVERSATION {above) so often swings around
to cigarettes — an interesting topic to smokers generally. "1
can tell the difference in Camels,” Commander Eilsberg says.

“Yes—absolutely!” says Commander Edward Elisberg. And
millions of other steady smokers know there is a distinct
difference in Camels. That's why Camels are the largest
selling cigarette in the world.

He says of Camels: ' I found
that smoking a Camel when 1
