Syverson says, :::well, I don't
believe It!" When a man flatly
disbelieves a tiling like that,
there's a fine chance for an ar
gument. Those who saw the mid
dleweight whirlwind Miller try to
do as much for 10 rounds, and
fail, there is good room for doubt
of a lightweight turning the trick.
Syverson is one of the toughest
lads who ever pulled on a glove
In this section, and the crowd will
tot believe that anythlny short
of a brick or a heavyweight will
do it as Cooke has predicted.
Cooke has the advantage of reach,
but be has done all his work in
his own gymnasium, so the pub
lic has no line on his ability.

Mulkey will undoubtedly be the
favorite. His last appearance here
was a disappointment, when he
lost on a foul to Kid Brady but
there was little doubt that the
the Brady foul was cooked up. or
was deliberately forced by Brady,
who was losing, for Mulkey has

as one of the star athletes at Che

ways and means committee said
the bonus bill would be passed
this session and added that It
was his judgment that the first
of the cash payments would be
made available to former service
men by next October 1.
It was his impression that the
captial payments would not en
tail the f'nanclal outlay that
some have supposed, and to sup
port this view he called attention
to the polls taken at various Ohio
posts of tha American legion,
which showed a large percentage
of the men approving the insur
ance option and few announcing
a desire for money.
Chairman Fordney thought the
bill probably would be reported
to the house in 10 days.
OF ALL COLLEGE ATHLETICS
Oregon State university has
Invited all the higher educational
Institutions of the state to Join
1a an athletic congress at the Im
perial Hotel, Portland, Saturday
of thii week.'
s ..They plan ! to . Institute a run
ning league that will give every
body, whether he ha a gym or
nothing "but the free road for "a
workout ground, an exactly equal
-chance to win. It Is planned to
put running back on the map as
Jt was in the Marathon days,
A. series of relay races of al
most every usable distance will
,be ' proposed; - novelty -' relays,
change-off races of almost every
-kind. , A pentathlon made up of
'various' track events will also be
' ur Dosed. '
Coach Bonier of Willamette is
quite strongly in iavor oi me
nmove.. ,, ; :
""Running is the foundation of
all athletics, for strength, wind
iand courage," he says. "It is the
.basis of everything that athletics
rstands for,, either for specializa
tion "or: for general good health.
I'd like to' see everybody out on
i the track training up for such

preliminary training we'd get our

? The big state basketball tour
nament ts .scheduled for Salem
k March 16, 17 and 18. The state
has been divided Into nine schol
astic districts and there can and
doubtless will be sine champions
to fight for the recognized lead
ership of the state.
An invitation track meet for a
few of the valley colleges is pro
posed by Coach Bonier, to Include
several of the near-by institutions
that will enter track teams for
general development work. While
Willamette does not start with
enough known stars to make a
single twinkle in the athletic sky,
the meeting should be a conspic
uous success from every point of
view, even if the local promoters
didn't get out of the cellar. The
proposal has not yet been acted
upon but it has been favorably
commented on by those to whom
it has been mentioned.
The basketball team still has a
heavy enough schedule to keep
it busy. There are six games yet
to come after the series with O.

American Not lurcr
Speaking of the bill for the
refunding of debt, Senator Lodge
"The United States ha no in
tention of playing the part of us
urer, but it was the money of the
American people which was lent
to the all'ed and associated pow
ers in their time of greatest need.
The debt which the United States
owed has been paid in full.
"We are all aware that some, j Andre
perhaps many of the nations In
debted to the Untted States, can
not now pay their principal or in
terest, but some arrangement
must be made to place that great
debt upon a business-like bas's
and to secure what is properly
due to the United States and her
people for it was the people who
lent the mor.ey."
In his account of the achieve
ments of the armament confer
ence, Senator Lodge said that
abrogation of the Anglo-Japanese
alliance removed a "soil in which

Sneaking of the Chinese settle

"The United States refused ab

China, of which it has always
been a part. But of the eight
other powers at the table in
Washington, six had ratified the
treaty of Versailles and had' ac

way to get that wrong undone was

"No man has a right to ask any i
boy to subscribe to any standard
of "living that he himself is not
willing to live up to." declared
Mr. Palmer. "Boys know a lot
more than their fathers believe
and the best way to encourage
right thinking among boys, is for
the father to become a companion
to his son."
One of the reason boys go bad
is the fact that they do not keep
in touch with the home folks, he
said. In all instances that came
to his attention in Portlan-l. where
boys have gtme astray, he had
found that they had forgotten
home ties. For th!s reason, he
urged all young men to keep in
touch with their parents.
"I have never ased a boy to do

self," declared Mr. Palmer.

Beck, in a scholarly addres be

power back to its original sources.
The diversions that addle the
mind, the thousand things that
shake th? soul from its moorings
and leave it tossing distractedly
in the murk of loose thinking and
loose morality, made for devotion
to the few essential things of life,

"The Constitution and the Dec-
laration of Independence evidence
that habit of silent thought.- The

sincerity and utility; not a word
