To ni g h t and tomorrow the Ducks, hoping they ’ll be able to return the compliment, push open their Irloo doors and beckon the Vandals to come play with them. Game time is 8 p.m. Should the Ducks win these two, they’ll have grab bed five straight, squared things#up with Idaho, main tained their precarious math ematical possibility of cap turing the northern division fleg, and will probably drive into their remaining six games ultra-hepped up. Idaho, on the other hand, can haul itself out of the basement with a double win, it will have swept the Webfoots four straight in this year’s campaign and tumbled the Ducks back into the cellar from which they crawled after throwing the blocks into Oregon State. Uncertain Starters Not until the Webfoots shed their warmups will Oregon's start ing five be known. However, just for the records, it may be Vic Townsend and Bill Borcher at for wards, Archie Marshik at center, Don Kirsch and George “Porky” Andrews at guards. Marshik “The Cockroach” started blossoming in the last Oregon State brawl after a shaky start this season. Since, he has been galloping around in practice with zest. Kirsch, a sawed-off dynamo of speed and deception, has barged up the ladder since the season’s teeoff to roost among Hobson’s best. Borcher Shines “The Goon” Borcher came through with 10 large and effica cious points against OSC last Saturday evening.

Miller, University physi cian, to make an appointment at the health service at their earliest convenience. Dr. Miller advises that not only are these examinations of personal advantage to the students who re ceive them because unsuspected health defects may be found, but they are often necessary for work applications. If students delay com pleting a physical examination, it may be impossible for them to get one when needed or at all, was his warning. We Want a Recount Yell leader ’lection Didn’t go off so well.

Greek G-Man Solves Missing Pie Mystery By HERBERT PENNY G-man methods have apparently worked their way through the comic strips and emerged from the minds of fraternity prexies. As witness “The Case of the Missing Pie” or “Who CoppecI the Cus tard ?” It appears that the boys at a well-known Greek house had been behaving themselves in such ex emplary fashion that the cook de cided to break down and bake the savages a toothsome dessert -to wit, eight pies. One Missing Eight of them there were when the cook pulled them out of the oven just after lunch time. But comes the feast and only seven sit on the sideboard. There was a robber on the rampage! And the next morning the mis sing pastry is found in the bureau drawer of the house president! Of course, prexy wasn’t to blame, but he had a good notion as to whom the culprits were. So stealthily he stole some personal belongings from his suspects (shav ing equipment, etc.) and scam pered off to the chem lab. Dick Tracy Stuff Why to McClure? Ah, there the G-man work comes in! For that president, that thieves’ nightmare, took the pieplate and the shaving stuff and compared the two sets of fingerprints he found on each of them! So Dick Tracy came through, the culprits were caught, and lawlessness on the Greek front is officially apprehended. STAR-DUSTER ... Harlow Shapley Stresses Need Of Galaxy Study Observatory Head Gives 'High Spots' In New Methods By NEVA HAIGHT Dr. Harlow Shapley, director of the Harvard observatory and noted astronomer, speaking last night in the auditorium of the music build ing, emphasized the importance of the study of galaxies, great star groups of which the earth is but a small part, to learn the earth’s place in the universe. Giving what he termed the “high spots” in the recent advances in astronomy, Professor Shapley, whose researches in that field are of world importance said: "The progress in astronomy has been brought about by internation alism in scientific discovery; the intermingling of the various scien tific techniques; and the tremen dous curiosity of American scien tists.” Coronagraph Dr. Shapley said that although there were still many unsolved problems in the mystery of the uni verse, new discoveries had been made in the past ten years through the use of finely developed mech anisms such as the coronagraph, which measures the speed of a me teor, and the more powerful types of telescopes. Professor Shapley spoke under the joint sponsorship of Sigma Xi, national science honorary, and the University lecture series, to stu dents, members of Sigma Xi, of the American Chemical society, and to the general public. Future Activities The lecture was the eighth in Dr. Shapley’s tour of universities. From here he will go to Stanford, then south and eventually back to Cambridge.
