Methodists Take Lead at Start
and Hold Visitors Down
by Fast Work
The AYillamette university basket
ball stock was lofted several points
last night when the Idaho squad was
taken clown the line to the tune of 25
to 21. Willamette took the lead from
the start and was never headed though
the invaders approached within one
point in the first half. Irvin started
the scoring by dropping a free throw
through the hoop and Flegel netter a
Tiasket a moment l.vter. The first half
ttood 11 to 13 for Willamette.
The Idaho men took about three
shots at the basket to Willamette's one
but the Methodists have vastly improv
ed in basket shooting and Idaho was
' unable to register. On the floor the
visitors excelled in teamwork but the
W. U. team showed the greater speed
and Shisler, Jewett and Irvin wriggled
about and dropped the ball through the

SEATTLE LAST NIGHT
Seattle, Wash., Feb. 12. riaying

and third periods, Seattlo copped last
night's ice hockey contest 8 to 4. The
locals were as much surprised as anyone
to win from the league leaders.
Bernio Morris, who went into the fra
cas with an injured arm, was the star
performed for the Metropolitans. He
scored four, of the Seattle goals and
helped in one other.
Portland failed to show to good ad

The Seattle boys were on top of every
man to Teceive a pass and the Uncle

Each team made a goal in the first
period. Seattle put over three and
Portland two in the second canto. The
third frame saw Seattle step to the
front and make four tallies while the
visitors were making one dent in the

Vancouver, B. C, Feb. 12. It took
more than 10 minutes of overtime play
here last night for the Vancouver
hockey squad to win from the homeless
Victoria contingent 7 to 6.
The locals started out strong and
were administering what seemed would
be an awful drubbing for Patrick's
boys, when the Victorias enme back.
Vancouver scored a goal just before
the end of the third period thnt would
have given them the game but Referee

All Soldiers In Trenches Now
Armed With Breech load
ing Aboriginal Guns
By William O. Shepherd.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Athens, Greece, Jan. 1. (By mail.)
German trench bombs fired from rif
les', unloaded by ally army experts here
show these rifle bombs to be the most
intricate of all bombs so far used in the
great war. Four separate explosions are
required to fire a bomb. The explosion
of the rifle sends the bomb perhaps
200 yards, where it alights on its nose
exploding a percussion cap, which lights
a brass cap filled with gun cotton,
which also explodes and causes half a
pound of gun cotton in the main body
of the bomb to be exploded. The bomb
weighs only a pound, is no more deadly
than most other trench bombs and costs
perhaps ten dollars.

The clubs are for use by troopers ca

of the trench don't know what is going
One of the newest missels in the great
war is a huge shell the Germans threw
at the Dardanelles. . Only air guns
could throw tho shell without exploding
it, and these new air guns must be
ten 'inches ih bore and many feet
long. One of these big shells which fell
in the British line unexploded has been
taken apart by experts. It is ten inches
in diameter and fifteen inches high,
made of sheet steel with wooden plug
disks nt each end. This big steel can
contained scventysix pieces of scrap
iron and twenty-five pounds of tri-ni-tro-toluol.
The missle weighed 51
pounds. The firing of the big shell must
have been touchy work. Imagine a fire
cracker ten inches thick, that would
blow a bole in the earth six feet deep
and ten feet in diameter Imagine
yourself facing the duty of lighting the
fuse on this fifty-one pound cracker
and then, while the fuse wns sputtering,
plncing the cracker in the mouth of u
giant air gun and firing the gun in
time to get the cracker out of your
neighborhood before it went off.
Most hand bombs don't go off by

on a stone or the butt of his rifle and
then, after a space of seven seconds
throws it. The bomb throbs in tin
