University of Oregon basketball
squad left here this afternoon. for
Moscow,' Idaho,! where Wednesday
night it will roeet the University
of Idaho in a.' contest that will
decide the leadership in the north
ern division of the Pacific Coast
conference. 1;
The University of Oregon now
holds this position . by virtue of
victories over the ' University of
Washington ahid Oregon Agricul
tural college, and so far is un
beaten. 4 Although the claim Is
contested, it is held that Idaho is
in second place with three vic
tories and one; defeat. The con
troversy arises; over the 'manner
of figuring the; four games with
Washington State college, which
were divided. I

Methodist and Catholic Uni
versity Basketball Teams
Will Clash
With Willamette playing a vast
ly improved game from the first
of the season and having as their
opponents a team accredited as
possessing the better of the odds,
indications promise a fast battle
when the Bearcats and Gonzaga
university of Spokane meet on the
Willamette floor here tonight.
Finding proof in their perform
ance last week, the dope sheet is
not without evidence that Wil
lamette may be able to hand the
visitors a real surprise, and the
local five are out with a strong
determination to deliver. !
The game tonight marks the
first appearance of a' - Gonzaga
team in Salem. The visitors come
with an enviable record for this
season, having defeated Whitman
and Montana, and played Close
games With Idaho, W. S. C, and
O..A. C. Itotchford, the Gonzaga
star forward, is reputed to be a
crack shot of the first caliber, and
Allen, a guard, comes with a bril
liant record of stellar performance
behind him. ( .
Rathbun's men have been im
proving by leaps and bounds since
the early games of the season, and
are in good shape to take on a
team of the Gonzaga metal. At
last, Kathbun seems to. have found
the lucky combination In Fas
nacht, Robertson, Logan, Erikson
and Pattoa. What these men lack
in experience and smoothness,
they have been making up in hard
fighting, with satisfactory results
in the last two games that they
have been working together. Lo
gan has been out much of the sea
son because of a bad knee, and
was taken from the game when he
strained another ligament.. It he
is unable to play tonight a big hole
will be lefW in Iho Bearcat sys
tem, but tbe latest word is that
he will start.
' An interesting sidelight on to
night's game is found in an old
rivalry between , Rathbun and
Coach Dorais of Gonzaga. Dorais
is" a former Notre Dame star, and
after his graduation served there
is assistant coach in basketball
and baseball, making a brillint
record. At that time Rathbun was
at Indiana, and teams from the
two schools met regularly. When
Dorais went to Gonzaga, Rathbun
was at O. A. C. and their teams
met' again. A considerable rival
ry exists between them over who
can take the most victories, and
to date Rathbun has one the bet
ter of the Gonzaga mentor. Yes
terday Dorais called Rathbun on
the long distance from Seattle,
where his men were playing last
night, emphasizing among other
things that he fully intends to
even the score.
; The game tonight will be called
at S o'clock.' A section of the
seats has been reserved for local
fans, and the tickets are now on
sale at Hauser brothers.

y'Jyi"' &i Hr made this picture version even funnier II
Two pictures of more than
pleasing moment, both of them de
clared by critics to be worthy of
the wholesale praise that has been
showered upon them, are coming
to Salem today. They are "Shift
ing Sands," which opens at the
Liberty, and "To the Ladies."
which tbe Oregon will offer for
the next three days.
Real shieks, handsome and oth
erwise, a sun-scorched Libyan des
ert, glittering lights of London's
night life, and the fulfilled pas
sions of wild youth beneath the
starry heavens of Tripoli, are some
of the things which give "Shift
ing Sands" an appeal that is uni
versal. It is said to be one of the
most realistic portrayals of desert
life as it really is that has ever
been produced.
Woman's place in business and
industrial life is the theme of "To
the Ladies," and with such art
ists as- Edward Horton, Theodore
Roberts, Helen Jerome Eddy and
Louise Dresser cast in the prin
cipal roles, the public is assured
that it will be splendidly handled.
Also, it's a . Paramount.
For real novelty. Innovation,
surprises, jingling melodies and
infectious fun the new musical
comedy, "Bringing Up Father On
Broadway," which is to be the
next attraction at the Grand
theater tomorrow, i3 said to be
the last word in the world of
modern amusement. Unlike most
of offerings bearing the stamp of
musical comedy the piece contains
a genu'ne plot with the action
carrying the various characters
all over ths world. They go to
Honolulu, King Tut's tomb, Italy,
Paris and various other localities.
Jiggs Mahoney, as "Father,"
has plenty to do to keep off those
who are not in sympathy with his
idea of how he should live his
own Tfe. Of course, Maggie is as
ubiquitlous as ever, with her so
sial aspirations placing quite a
d(ain on her husband's purse.
As long as it is all done in the
cause of wholesome fun "Father"
does not mind it. He is a good
fellow and believes in perpetuat
ing the fame of his" creator,
George McManus. The play re
quires two acts and five scenes to
tell the story.
Hop Contract Offers
Getting No Response
Hop offers on contract are not
meeting with response on the Eng
lish markets, according to local
dealers. Advices received from
the same source were to the effect
that there is little or no interest
shown in contracts and that there
is no market.
Practically all buying that re
cently caused a flurry in the hop
market was from American and
not English channels.
Skyline Orchard Owner
Inspects Property Here
Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Noble, of
Youngstown, Ohio, are spending a
few days in Salem to look over
their big Skyline walnut and prune
orchard located seven miles south
of here. From Salem they will
leave for the Orient where they
expect to remain a year in the in
terests of the fireproof roofing and
metal lath concern in which he is
interested. Mr. Noble attended
the Chamber of Commerce lunch-
benhorst. 1
The Skyline orchard consists of 1
248 acres and is one of the finest
properties in the Willamette val
ley. Mr. Noble said yesterday
that the orchard was not for sale
and that he placed a valuation of
f240,00O upon his property. . A
majority of the orchard, is set to
walnuts, interplanted with prunes,
it has had particular care and is
considered a model orchard Ui ev
ery respect.
Need of advertising the Oregon
prune, which Is hardly known in
the east, was stressed by Mr. No
ble, who said that the California
fruit was crowding out the Ore
gon product, due to advertising.
Occasionally he saw an advertise
ment for the Orogon fruit and
found it once in a while featured
upon the menu. Walnuts had a
wonderful year in the east, he
said, but urged that they be sent
back in sufficient time to make
them available for holiday trade.
C. F. Giese Returns From

jauni into uauiumia
California people have been go
ing around with long faces because
they have had no rain, according
to C. F. Giese, of the Giese
Powers Furniture company, who
returned during the week-end
from San Francisco where he at
tended a buyers' convention.
"There was rain the last four
days of the week and it helped to
pep up the people," Mr.' Giese said
yesterday. "They are not like
Oregon people, however, for when
it rains they kee off the streets. In
general, business conditions ,are
good in California."
Mr. Giese said that GOO manu
facturers were represented at the
Furniture Exchange, which has its
own home and is kept open the
year around. Furniture dealers
meet there twice a year, in Jan
uary and in August. The Califor
nia exchange is surpassed only by
one other of a similar kind, the
one held in Grand Rapids, Mich.,

Dallas is intent upon evenins
up the 14 to 7 defeat recently
given them on their home floor
by Salem. With the txception cf
a five minute period when Salem
exhibited a sudden burst and
jumped into the lead, the two
teams were evenly matched and a
bitter conflict is anticipated.

LONDON. Feb. 11. (By The
Associated Press. ) - The conser
vative party defeated at the elec
tions on its policy of protection,
decided at a party conference to
day to drop protection and meet
the challenge of the new labor
government by going into opposi
tion in the new house as nominal
ly a united party, still loyal to its
leader, Stanley Baldwin. Though
Mr. Baldwin, as prime minister,
led his administration to defeat,
he was unanimously reelected
leader of his party and thus was
given another chance.
Strong efforts were made by a
large section of the party and a
powerful body .of the conserva
tive press to choose another lead
er, hut without avail. The reso
lution to retain Mr. Baldwin,
however, seems to have been bas
ed purely on a settlement of loyal
