BAKINS' GREAT PUNTING
WINS FOR DOBIE’S
Oregon Makes First Score in
Two Years’, But Unable to
Solve New Forward Pass
Oregon lost the football championship
to the University of Washington last
Thursday by a score of 20 to 6, finish
ing the season second in the Northwest
and first in the State. A crippled pun
ter, losing about thirty yards on every
exchange, explains Forbes’ defeat by a
team that had little if any other point
of superiority over his loyal young ama
It was a great game, and though the'
c^regdn men freely admit that they were
outclassed, they feel that the score
should not have been so large. Neither
team was able to gain consistently and
Oregon showed what she could do by
making the first score against Washing
ton in two years and the second touch
down ever recorded against Gilmour
Captain Clarke limped around with
his team all the first half and part of
the second. It was impossible for him
to do his usual brilliant work, however,
and though everyone sympathized with
his gritty efforts, it was plain from the
start that he was of little use. At last
Forbes had to take him out.
The Oregon Coach attributes the re
sult entirely to punting. By this means
the ball was worked down to the Ore
gon goal and then the forward pass
was called into requisition. In this po
sition, when every man is needed to
back up the line, it cannot fail to work
sometime during the game. Forbes
says that any pass would have succeeded
and that his own men with the same
advantage would have easily reversed
However, Washington was up against
a solid defense and both teams resorted
to punting. It was a punting game and
there is little comparison between the
kicking of Clarke arid Eakins, for the
Washington tackle" had the crippled
captain beaten badly and this more than
all else gave victory to Washington.
After fifteen minutes of play Wash
ington scored. Eakins had attempted a
place kick from the 35-yard line and
failed. Oregon punted after being pen
alized for an uncompleted forward pass.
A 20-yard run by W. Grimm, two line
bucks, and Mucklestone -was pushed
over the white mark. Coyle kicked goal..
A few minutes later Oregon tied the
scolre, putting a broad grin on the
faces of the Oregon players and root
ers, while dismay settled over the bulk
of the crowd. To the rght, then to the
left, Oregon got around the ends for
substantial gains, then a punt was re
covered on Washington’s 3-yard line.
Twice a line attack was repulsed, then
Latourette by a clever trick play dashed
through an opening caused by the de
ception and scored Oregon’s only touch
down. Goal was kicked.

PROF. GLEN DEFENDS
A musical recital by Professor Glen
in Assembly this morning on Tennyson’s
monodrame entitled “Maude” was great
ly enjoyed by one of the largest audi
ences of the year.
He said the poem received much un
due criticism but was highly praised by
the poet's contemporaries. It was a
work of his maturity and not of his
youth and was inspired by a small verse
for which Maude was writen as a pre
decessor or explanatory poem.
In a most interesting way Professor
Glen told the life story of the hero who
is raised by the power of love from the
narrow life of a cynic to a man of no
bility, only to be shut out in the su
preme moment of his life by being
thrown into exile. Following these
scenes and each new burst of love in
the hero, are beautiful lyrics which were
excellently rendered by Professor Glen
with his rich baritone voice.
The Hyacinth Fair to be given by the
Y. W. C. A. will be held in the base
ment of the Presbyterian church instead
of the Armory, as was advertised.
Top row—Vawter, Downs, Geisler, Barzee, Rolfe, Robinson, Welch, Martin, Davidson.
Lower row, left to right—Ogden, Mallett, Curtis, Frazier, Powell.
At the end of twenty-nine minutes
Washington again took the lead. Con
sistent gains through the line and sev
eral forward passes netted another
touchdown and the score was 11 to 6.
Goal was unsuccessful.
Two minutes before the first half
ended Taylor of Washington returned
the kick-off thirty yards. After a re
covered punt and a forward pass the
ball was close enough for Coyle to plant
it between the posts.
Washington scored one touchdown at
the close of thesecond half. Coyle made
a good return of Latourette’s punt and
then Grimm got away with a forward
pass for thirty-five yards and the last
score. Coyle kicked goal.

OREGON MEN DO
WELL ON ALL
OFFICIAL TEAM CONTAINS
THREE AND DOBIE
Latourette Wins Out for Quarter,
Pinkham Second Choice for
Captain. Taylor Gets Half.
With the close of the football season,
each of the coaches and some of the
prominent and best posted men on
Northwest football are making their se
lections for All-Northwest teams.
On the three teams chosen by Coaches
Blanchard of Whitman, Keinholz of W.
S. C„ and C. N. McArthur, Western
representative for Spaulding’s Official
Football Guide, five Oregon men hold
Gilmour Dobie was the first coach to
make a choice. To avoid criticism and
to show no partiality he preferred not
to mention any of his own men. On
this team he places six Oregon men.
C. N. McArthur, whose choice is offi
cial, names three Oregon men, Pinkham,
Latourette, and Taylor. He gives Wash
ington four men, O. A. C. two men,
and Pullman one. Borleske, the great
Whitman halfback, gets the captaincy,
with Pinkham as second choice.
McArthur’s team differs front the
others. In four particular places he
stands almost by himself. He picks La
tourette for quarter, beacuse he showed
better form in the Thanksgiving game,
flic Washingon men admit this fact but
claim that their man was injured early
in the contest. McArthur also gives
Taylor preference over Mucklestone.
May and W. Grimm, both of Washing
ton, are given places on the official
team, whereas most of the coaches
picked other men from the same team.
Coach Blanchard favors Washington
more than the other colleges. He
names Tegmeier, center; H. Grimm,
right guard; Mattson, right end; Coyle,
quarter, and Mucklestone, left half.
Coach Keinholz also gives the cen
ter and quarterback positions to Tegt
meier and Coyle. He builds his all-star
team by shifting the men from their
natural positions, putting Eakins at left
guard. This is the point wherein he
differs from Blanchard, for he gives
Mucklestone left half.
Following are the selections made:
Blanchard, coach of Whitman, se
lects : Left end, Dodson, Oregon; left
guard, Fishback, State College; left
tackle, Hunter, State College; center,
Tegtmeier, Washington; right guard, H.
Grimm, Washington; right tackle, Pink
ham, Oregon; right end, Mattson,
Washington; quarterback, Coyle, Wash
ington ; left half, Mucklestone, Wash
