Oregon Disappoints Coach and
Rooters—Clarke Unable to
Play Because of Injury
Portland, Nov. 13.—fn a ragged
game of football, surprising everyone,
the University of Idaho held the Uni
evrsity of Oregon down to the low
score of 22 to 6. The game was inter
esting at all times, though not spectac
ular, and to the Oregon rooters it was
somewhat disappointing.
Oregon did not show up as well as
usual and Idaho was unexpectedly
strong. Their ends were especially
good, always down the field after every
punt. Latourette had little chance for
open held work. They were on top
of him every time, downing him in
his tracks.
Captain Clarke was unable to play
>>n account of an injury received last
Wednesday in practice.
A crowd of 5,000 people watched the
game. The held was fair but not fast.
Oregon won mainly on straight football.
In the first half, Oregon led off
strong, Taylor making a touchdown
after an exchange of punts in just five
minutes. Ten minutes later Hickson
recovered a punt on Idaho’s live yard
line and Sullivan was sent through
right tackle for a second score. The
first goal was missed but Michael made
the second—score, Oregon 11 ; Idaho 0.
Idaho then took a decided brace,
and playing good ball made yardage
three consecutive times, after which
Dorsett plowed through the whole Ore
gon team for twenty one yards before
being downed. This put the .ball on
Oregon’s three yard line in Idaho’s
possession. It required two bucks to
send it over, but Thornton negotiated
the trick successfully and Hillman
kicked an easy goal. Score: Oregon,
11; Idaho 6.
The rest of the half was without
score. The Oregon men did not show
their usual dash and, on the whole,
their showing was disappointing.
In the second half, Oregon got to
gether better, but Idaho was always
strong and held them down to eleven
more points, though unable to score
again themselves. Kiltz replaced Hick
son at end0 and Dodson relieved
After ten minutes’ play Kiltz caught
a forward pass on Idaho’s 50 yard line
and got away for a touchdown, Taylor
kicked goal.
On the fourth play after the kickoff,
Latourette caught a punt while the
Idaho ends were asleep for oiice and
ran 80 yards for the fourth and last
touchdown. Score: Oregon, 22; Idaho,
0. Soon after. Kiltz made a touch
back on a forward pass but the half
ended without further score.
Corvallis, Nov. 13.—In one of the
hardest games ever played here Wash
ington defeated O. A. C. on the local
held this afternoon by a score of 18 to
0. The Aggies fought desperately in
the first half, surprising everyone at
their strength, but weakened in the
It took twenty-five minutes of the
hardest kind of playing for Coach Do
bie’s men to carry the ball over for
the first score. O. A. C. made yard
age often, but were gradually beaten
down before the superior strength of
last year's champions. In the second
half Washington made two touchdowns,
one in seven and the next in six. All
goals were kicked. There w-ere no
serious injuries.

Heilig Houses Can Now Be Used
For All Performances—Friend
ly Relations Restored.
A compromise on a “75-25” instead
of a "70-30” percentage was effected
between the managers of the Eugene
Theatre and the University of Oregon
Glee Club late yesterday afternoon.
This brings to a final close all dis
putes between the two parties and with
it vanish all threats, personalities and
hitter feelings.
The Glee Club will now give its con
cert in the Eugene Theatre, taking sev
enty-five per cent of the gate receipts.
It will show in Heilig houses on the
Southern Oregon trip, in Salem, and in
Portland. In the latter city it will go
either to the Baker or Bungalow.
The result is both a victory and con
cession for both parties. Smith, of the
theatre, first demanded thirty per cent
of the total receipts. Geary contended
for a straight rate of one hundred dol
lars. The compromise is probably near
er the rate demanded by Smith. Geary,
however, believes that he has done
enough for one year and only hopes that
future managers may continue the work.
"1 am pleased with the results,” he
said before leaving for Portland last
night, "but I still consider that noth
ing short of a flat rate of forty or fifty
dollars, such as is given by other Trust
managers to local organizations, is
Manager Smith is very anxious lest
the students do him injustice, since he
contends that it was only his loyalty to
the University that brought him to
terms. “I have always been a staunch
supporter of the University and all stu
dent activities,” he said. "I haven’t
forgotten the time when I was a stu
dent myself, and I still retain a warm
place in my heart for the University
of Oregon. I wish it understood that
this compromise was not prompted by
any fear of boycott but merely out of
loyalty to the University. These are
the best terms I have ever given any
body and 1 am glad to be able to dielp
the Glee Club out.”
Mr. Smith also agreed to do what
he could to help the club with other
managers on their tour. The members
and students are all elated over the.
outcome for prospects of showing in
Villard Hall and in High School audi
toriums were anything but pleasing. A
boycott on the Eugene Theatre was
talked of and many students felt that
it was their duty to stay away from
the shows. This was inconvenient,
however, and all are glad that it did
not continue.
The time of meeting of the Engineer
ing Club has been changed to tonight,
as its regular date conflicted with the
Y. W. C. A. concert. At this meeting
Dr. Leonard will probably present a
solution of the card problem which has
been bothering so many of late.
Sophs Conduct Men’s Meeting
1 he sophomores conducted one of the
best Men’s Meetings that has been held
this year, in Deady Hall last night. Af
ter a song service and the election of
the M. C. A., Svveany took charge
fifty-two new men to membership into
of the meeting. He called on Cash of
the sophomore class who made a good
talk. Cash was followed by Walls, an
other soph, who told in an interesting
manner of the work of the association
in other universities. Because of the
absence of Osterholm, who was to
speak concerning the time that Y. M.
C. A. work might be expected to take
in a man’s college course, Sweaney
called on Brown to discuss the subject
on the spur of the moment. Svveany
closed the remarks with a strong talk
on the effect of the Y. M. C. A. in the
life of a student.
Despite the concert at Villard Hall, in
preparing for which, many of the fel
lows were unable to get to the Men's
Meeting, the attendance was good and
the Hall was almost filled; a continued
increase in attendance will necessitate
a larger hall for these meetings by the
first of the year.
Gamma Delta Gamma Initiates
The Gamma Delta Gamma Sorority is

Jimmy—He Hurries Back
Jinnny is a Scotch Collie, a recent
present of Miss Sophia Catlin to the
Gamma Phi Beta sorority girls. Being
a young dog, he is full of mischief and
chews up everything in sight—except
"() where is my rubber” is a familiar
cry before classes every omrniug as the
girls vainly search the porch and yard
for the missing article. Jimmy all the
while, hides behind the corner of the
house aid chews anl rubbers. But when
the girls are gone, Jimmy hurries back
—and takes another rubber.
Cross Country. Begins
Cross country wjork will begin next
Tuesday at four o’clock, when the Var
sity distance men under the leadership
of George Riddel will make the tirst
regular trip over the course. Trainer
Hayward desires that all the men begin
work in earnest at that time. The sea
son is already well advanced in most
of the other colleges of the Northwest
and if Oregon desires to he on an even
basis with these colleges in the dis
tances, he says, it is high time that
regular practice was beginning.

Villard Hall Exquisitely Decor
ated and Fine Program Is Ren
dered—Prof Glen at His Best
(By Burns Powell)
1'he Promenade concert given in Vil
la rtl 1 lull last evening by the ladies of
the Y. VV. C. A. in the interest of their
bungalow, was a grand success. The
total receipts were $85.
Old Villard Hall was fairly changed
into a fairy palace. The benches, cov
ered with Navajo blannets, were set
facing the center isle which had been
widened and made into a promenade
course, dotted here and there by rugs
and tables holding loads of chrysanthe
mums. A promenade course was also
left between the wall and the benches.
A network of small Chinese lanterns
hung from the balcony;' the electric
lights were covered with lanterns; and
large lamps and candles, in brass candle
sticks, placed in various parts of the
room, added to the effect. The stage
was decorated with flowers, lanterns
and screens.
Professor Dunn was master of cere
monies, the program was divided into
two parts and between parts the aud
ience promenaded about the courses and
drank punch, served in one corner by
the charming young ladies.
In part I. of the program Mr. Powell
played a trombone solo, Mrs. M. H.
Douglas played a piano solo and Misses
Prosser, Cross, Prescott, Young, Pen
gra and Yoran sang a trio front the
•The Holy City.”
In part II. of the program, Professor
Glen sang two baritone solos. Miss
Helen While sang a soprano solo; Mr.
Brown gave a couple of readings from
Riley, Miss Lucile Abrams played a
violin solo and Mr. Frazer sang a bari
tone solo. An ideal musical audience
listened to the program and encored
each number.
Space will permit a special mention
of only one number: The two solos by
Professor Glenn: His first number,
“Swords Out for Chirlie,” by Bullard,
was on the bombasto order and showed
Mr. Glen's line interpretation of that
styleof piece. II is second number,
“Mother o' Mine” by Towes, was sung
with beautiful tone effects and expres
sion. Mr. Glen’s rich baritone voice
held the audience spell bound during the
last number. Never has his voice ap
peared to better advantage.
The committee which had charge of
the entertainment was composed of Mrs.
R. C. Clarke, Mrs. E. E. DeCou and
Mrs. Stafford. Much 'of the success of
the evening was due to the untiring
work of Miss Edith Prescott.
The Oregon Monthly was put in the
mail this afternoon. Manager Bried
well says that any who have neglected
to sign, up for copies and want them
can see him next week in time to get
one of the first issue.
