OREGON VOLUME 11 EUGENE, OREGON, SATURDAY, NOV. 13, 1909. No. 14 OREGON WINS THOUGH SCORE IS NOT LARGE IDAHO SHOWS SURPRISING STRENGTH AND MAKES ONE TOUCHDOWN 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 Michael. 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. O. A. C. STRONG, BUT LOSES TO WASHINGTON 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 second. 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.

The others chosen were Ethel Barnard, Pearl Hawthorn, Bertha Cummings, Es sie Haley, Mae Sage, Pearl Huff, and Edith Prescott.

Hillman DISPUTE WITH EUGENE THEATRE IS COMPROMISED t CONCESSIONS MADE BY BOTH SIDES BRING ABOUT PEACE 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 just.” 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 holding initiation this week for its new members, Eva Roach, Corin Degermart, and Winifred Kerr. The girls arc the recipients of considerable social atten tion. An afternoon party will be given for the girls today by the Misses White, Cecil and Jameson. Tonight the soror ity wil be entertained at the home of Miss Prances Young, Mrs. Dunston, Miss Maud Stinson and Mrs. DeCou being guests of honor. 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 dogs. "() 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. Put Off Again Once more did the committee on the yell and song contest promise to meet last Wednesday and once more Idid they put off their decision. They now I announce that it will not he decided till after the O. A. C. game. Y. W. PROMENADE CONCERT MAKES BIG SUCCESS EIGHTY-FIVE DOLLARS TOWARD BUILDING BUNGALOW 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.
