A pair of Sigma Nu fratern

got together before the first
WSC-Oregon game last night
over at the local chapter, and
what they said to each other
proved interesting for what hap
pened on the court later.
Big John Dick, Webfoot cap

Bill Chase, of the Washington
State team, "Let's run for a
And Bill responded, “Well,
we'll see, John, I don’t know.”
(Just as if he was to tell his
team plans to his pet rival). Af
ter the romping by both teams
last night, it looks like Chase
did plan to run.
The two captains talked over
their respective trips to the east
this winter, and came to the con
clusion that the eastern teams
play a rougher game than they
do in the West.
Chase told John that both Ore
gon and Washington State were
n't out of it yet, (meaning the
conference race), to which Dick
responded that’s right, one will
be Tuesday night, but it wouldn’t
be his team.

"Have Got Tree,

Eyes blinked and heads got
together when the following let
ter was received by Professor F.
Wangaard of the University of
Washington forestry school:
“We have got a tree growing
in our yard which we don’t know
what it is. It is not a very big
tree and it has a lot of branches.
It is about ten years old and it is
growing very fast. We have got
to know what kind of tree it is
because the cows keep nibbling
on it and if it is not good for
them we should know quick.
“They told us that the forrest

Behind the Scenes
Before David O. Selznick had
completed ‘‘Gone With the Wind,”
he ran out of money and borrowed
SI,200,000 from the bankers. . . .
They probably will get back the
full loan this month. ... In six
weeks, “Gone With the Wind” has
grossed about $3,000,000 of which
$2,000,000 goes to Selznick and
MGM. . . . The world gross of the
