Mrs. Pipes Delights Audience
Mrs. Susie Fennell Pipes delighted
her audience with her playing last night
at the Eugene Theatre. Her first num
ber lead some to believe that she had
lost much of her temperament, although
her academic work showed improve
ment. but the rendering of the beautiful
sonata by Caesar Frinck disproved this.
I he sonata was played with such fire
and spirit that her audience was fairly
carried off its feet and it applauded at
various intervals during the number.
Mrs. Pipes’ stud}' under Spirring has
developed her technical powers to a
wonderful degree. Her tone is beau
tiful and her interpretation very cor
rect. So pleased was the audience that
it made her play several numbers after
the program was finished.
Mrs. Pipes was tastefully accompanied
bw Mr. Hutchison. Mr. Fargo, of
Xew York, sang. He had neglected to
commit his solos, and consequently
could not interpret them to the full ex
tent of his ability.
Eight hundred and nineteen new
books were added to the University li
brary during the month of October.
Among the books added are some Ger
man chemical books and some valuable
old documents on European history.
Since the first of January, 1909, 5,420
volumes have been added to the library.
PULLMAN WINS FROM
IDAHO ON WET FIELD
Moscow, Nov. 5. (Special)—On a
wet field, eight inches deep in mud,
Washington State Colieg defeated
Idaho IS to 0 today. The teau s played
very close during the first half, Idaho
fighting desperately and allowing only
one score which her supporters say was
undeserved. I hey weakened during
the seocnd half and Pullman made two
more touchdowns, kicking all goals.
W. S. C. tried for a field goal early
in the game but failed. Much criticism
was heaped upon the officials, Nelson
and Cook, it being charged that they
gave the visitors their score in the first
half by repeatedly allowing them four
downs to make their ten yards in.
The play was mostly in the W. S. C.
territory, punting and straight foot
ball being the order. Not a single
injury was sustained by either team.

lectures that the committee has prepared
to be given by the different professors.
Students are also invited to attend the
meetings and many avail themselves of
the opportunity to thus broaden their
education. The subjects discussed cov

GREAT FUN AND SOME
SPIRIT AT CLASS GAME
For pure fun ihe Freshman-Sopho
more Class game 1 hursday had the Var
sity contests faded. VV hen the whistle
finally blew away off somewhere in the
darkness, the Sophs claimed a 5 to 0
victory. Whether the ball was lost, the
freshmen were unable to find members
of their team, or both sides were just
tired, they finally stopped with 1913
From the start both teams dug in hard
with the Sophs having a hit the better
of it. Carl Huston recovered a punt
on the 12-yard Frosh line and on the
fourth buck Rinehart fell on the fum
bled ball across the goal line, making
the only score.
Just after the next kick off Cacy
Moullen faceciously penalized 1912 15
yards because Storie coached the
freshmen. When Captain Jamison
failed to see the point and beefed he was
stung 15 more. Outside of this and
several trifling altercations, relations
were fairly amiable.
In the second half the Freshmen were
entirely on the defensive and though
Jamison's Demons forced them back for
two touchdowns, (here was no scoring.
A novel feature introduced into the
game which took well with the crowd
was two games at once by two teams
more or less. In the gathering gloom
someone threw an extra ball onto the
field. This varied the program a bit
and everyone indulged in the game of
"ball, ball, which is the right football.”
George Hug finally located the official
ball. One good result of the game was
the unexpected “pip" shown by the Frosh
and the way Lyle Brown and the rest of
them got together in the yelling.
The lineup follows:
T. Waite, Sweet
H. . Looney, Krieger
Students Build Bleachers
Between fifty and sixty students this
morning began the construction work
on the new bleachers which are to he
erected for the accomodation of the
big crowd which is expected to attend i
the game between the University of |
Oregon and the O. A. C. football teams.
A number of men were allowed to work
their regular shop hours on the bleach
ers and under careful direction the work
has progressed most encouragingly. The
new bleachers are being built adjoining
the east end of the grand stand and will
be about one hundred feet in length.
The Owl club held its monthly meet
ing last Tuesday evening at 828 High

OREGON WINS FOURTH
GAME FROM M. A. A. C.
-THREE TO NOTHING
1*or the fourth successive time Oregon downed her old rivals,
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club, today on Kincaid field.
The score was 3 to 0 made on an easy field goal; the game hard
fought, the field fine and much of the playing spectacular.
Oregon showed splendid form and rarely failed to satisfy
her supporters. The forward passes worked better than is usual
so early in the season, a majority of them being negotiated suc
cessfully. The visitors were especially outclassed in punting and
handling punts, making many costly fumbles. Moores for Mult
nomah averaged slightly under 30 yards, while Clarke averaged
37 yards and sent many out for more than 50.
Multnomah excelled in straight football but could not make
yardage consistently enough to kjep even with Clarke’s long spir
als and forward passes. They kept their strength well, however,
during the entire game and made few substitutions.
Ludlam was slightly injured during the first half and Lon
nergan replaced Stott late in the game. They played fiercely but
against rather hard luck at times. They made yardage several
times, while Oregon had to resort to a more open game to hold
their own against the heavier line of the Clubmen.
Coach Forbes used his famous two team system with per
fect success, playing almost two entire teams. After the game
he said, “1 am well satisfied. For this stage, the showing was
fine, especially the defense. The offense was good, considering
how the men hav been changed in the various positions. They
have the experience and I will now start perfecting the team
Jack Latourette for Multnomah
kicked off to Sap Latourette, who re
turned the ball to Oregon’s 35 yard
line. Clarke punted 40 yards to Tem
pleton who was downed in his tracks.
In a series of brilliant plays and ex
change of punts, Oregon carried the
ball into Multnomah’s territory. Re
covering one of their own punts on
the ten yard line they lost a chance to
score by fumbling. A moment after,
however, Clarke made a perfect place
kick from the twenty yard line. Seven
minutes play, score, Oregon 3, M. A.
A. C., 0.
Oregon received the kick off when
the ball was put in play again and
rushed it to the Club’s two yard line
in less than one minute’s play, but
fumbled in trying to carry it over.
The ball was taken the entire length
of the field in three plays, two recov
ered punts, and a forward pass.
Multnomah, fighting desperately dur
ing the rest of the half managed to
work the ball back to the center of the
field and, with straight football man
aged to force much of the play. They
excelled in line bucking but their ad
vantage was lost by ragged handling
of the ball and poor punting. Toward
the end they weakened and Oregon
rushed the ball close enough to try for
another field goal which missed nar
rowly. The half ended before the ball
could be put in play again.
Honors were about even in this half.
Multnomah received kickoff, and try
ing for yardage, were penalized fif
teen yards for roughness. Punting out
to the middle of the field, they forced
the play for awhile and then seemed
to weaken. Twice Oregon rushed the
ball close to the clubmen’s line, the
second time trying a forward pass
Moores for Multnomah executed a
brilliant play just after this, making a
running punt that took the ball back
to the center of the field. Once the
visitors got close enough for Jack La
tourette to try a drop kick, but it
Toward the finish Oregon again
worked the ball into their opponents’
territory but failed narrowly in a third
attempt at a field goal just before the
