'By twice defeating Idaho at Midway
Park, on Mortday by the score of 2 to
0, and on Tuesday in a forfeited game
by the score of 9 to 0, Oregon has
clamped two Jtnore tentacles on the
Northwest championship; and now
with four games out of the eighteen
played and won, the pennant begins to
loom up big.
HENKEL’S GREAT WORK
Monday’s game was an ample expo
sition of Henkel’s powers as a pitcher.
From beginning to end of the game he
held the Idaho batters at his mercy;
striking out nine men and only allow
ing one hit. Not an Idaho man was
allowed to reach second, and only
three made first; with the exception of
one error, the big southpaw received
perfect support, every man on the team
handling the wet, slippery ball in big
Hayden, who pitched for Idaho, was
but little less miserly with his allow
ance of hits. He walked four men, how
ever, and only struck out three. After
the first inning, when three errors were
made, he received good support, but
these three errors were responsible for
Oregon’s first run, made by Chandler.
In the fourth inning Clarke registered
the only earned run of the game on his
safe hit, followed by infield outs by
Van Marter’ and Henkel, and a passed
ball. This ended the scoring, and the
rest of the game was a pitcher’s battle
throughout which Henkel had all the
Tuesday’s forfeited game was not
quite so gratifying to the Oregon fans
as a repetition of Monday’s clean cut
victory would have been ; and was, more
over, slightly marred by Grogan’s at
tempted interference with the umpire.
! lie decision which pi capitated tnc
breaking up of the game was made in
the seventh inning, when, with two out
and the score tied, Gabrielson slid home
and was called safe. Grogan claimed
that the decision was unfair, and, on
the certain refusal of the umpire to
change his decision, took his nine off the
After the game, however, the Idaho
coach claimed that it was two decisions
at first base that he objected to. One
was when Taylor failed, as the Ida
hoans allege, to keep within three feet
of the line in the second inning, and the
other was in the fifth inning when the
hall was put in play after a foul before

U. of W. CO-EDS HAVE
Seattle, April 8.—Washington oars
vvbmen are practicing hard for their
interclass regatta on the 22nd. Sixty
co-eds still have ambitions towards mak
ing a seat in one of the barges; and
rivalry is keen. Asst. Coach Gretchen
O Donnell will select junior, sophomore
and freshman crews at the competitive
tryouts tomorrow. Women’s rowing
has been well established here for two
years, although some of the co-eds have
been turning out four seasons.
Six Varsity debaters were granted the
Varsity “W” last night. Those who
received the emblem were intercollegi

works of interest. The trip is intended
primarily for seniors and juniors, hut
any other students who desire co go
may do so.
Professor .McAlister has not required
the upper-classmen majoring under him
to go, hut he urges all who can afford
it to take the trip, for he says it will
he of value in two ways. The student
will gain practical knowledge of works
such as he can get out of no text book,
and he will he enabled to get acquainted
wth practical engineers, which may he
of inestimable value to him later on.
The party will leave Eugene Monday
morning and go directly to Portland.
Headquarters will be at the Imperial

SENIOR PLAY IS GREM
SUCCESS IN EVERY WAY
DEBTS CANCELLED AND
Actors Do Star Work In Difficult
Parts—Leading Characters Win
Hearts of Audience.
I lie senior class lias at *.tst teen ,:fo>l
out of debt and now linds itself for the
first lime this year solvent. Lhis has
been accomplished wi h the proceeds
from the Senior Play, which was held
Saturday. Manager IV tv announces
that the clear profits uni ) mi 10 $25,0 in
round numbers, which Vdl lie sufficient
to satisfy the claims against, the t ire
gana, pay other minor debts and leave
a small balance in the treasury, besides
making it possible for tire tax money
which was collected from llie class ear
lier in the year to he refunded.
I lie play itself was a triumph for ail
concerned in its production, from Pro
fessor Glen, who directed the rehears
als, to th" one who held he most unob
trusive part in the cast. Supported by
a thoroughly appreciative audience,
which filled the theatre, every actor was
at his best; and the result was a pro
duction which, as Professor Glen him
self declared, was* the best from the
standpoint of real acting, that has ever
been given by a senior class of the Uni
versity of Oregon.
Miss Frances Obertcufifer, as Fanny,
tbe young English heiress, was mag
nificent, and those who saw her could
readily understand why Captain Letter
blair, the young Irish officer in the play,
lost his heart to her entirely as he did.
Miss Jennie Lilly, as Hyacinth, played
perfectly the parlt, and her romance
with the Dean, who was represented by
Mr. Harold Hates, was one of the es
pecially pretty sub-plots of the play.
Miss Ruth Duniway, who played the
part of Polly, the pretty and vivacious
J.ltle niece of the Dean, and in the course
of the play completely ensnared the
heart of Pinkey, the secretary, handled
her part cleverly, and richly deserved
the hearty hursts of applause with which
the audience greeted her.
Among the men, Dudley Clarke, in
| the leading role as Captain Letterblair
I Lytton, won the hearts of the audience
from the very beginning of the first act.
All through the play he was ideal, a
good lover, a good hater, a good soldier,
and in the last act a prince at forgiving
his enemy. Supported by R. K. Terry,
with rampant gray pompadour and griz
zled heard, as Jorkins, the faithful sol
dier servant, the brave Irish captain
faced his misfortunes heroically and
came out triumphant in the end, ap
plauded in the most whole-hearted man
ner by all who witnessed the play.
Win, Kilt/ played the part of Meri
vale, the villain, in a thoroughly suc
cessful manner, and the acting of the
other men in the cast—Harold Bates
as the conservative Dean, Benjamin Wil
liams as the lawyer guardian of Fanny,
Joel Richardson as the persistent,
though timid, collector of hills, C, P.
Shangle as the secretary, and Harold
Rounds as Henry, who though he did

MUSICAL FESTIVAL TO
BE GIVEN BY CHORUS
The dates for the May Festival to be
given by the University Choral Society
have been definitely set for the 14th and
15th of May.
The large chorus lias made remark
able improvement during the last month
and will be in first class condition by
the time set for its appearance.
A symphony orchestra of 25 pieces
has been organized and is rehearsing
every Sunday afternoon. This orches
tra will accompany the chorus and also
be heard in several concerted numbers.
It is composed of the best musicians
in lingerie, and will be augmented by
a number of musicians from Portland.
I bis Festival is a big undertaking,
and if it pays financially it will be made
an annual event in the college year.
The business end has been turned
over to the ladies of the Y. W. C. A.,
and whatever surplus accrues they will
apply to their bungalow.

High Jump Uncertain
i lie team that will compete in the
Columbia meet next Saturday has, with
one or two exceptions, been picked.
I here is, yet to be pulled off, a tryout
Detween “Jumper” Johnson and Barry
Hastham for first place in the high

teams has not yet been decided; al
though this team will be picked from
among the men named below.

entering the meet are: Ben Williams,
Riddell, McGuire, Bristow, Hawkins,
Johns, Sweany, McDaniels, Latourette,
Henderson, Garrabrandt, McClure and

jump can he held the team will he com
Despite the bad weather the track
men are in good shape and should have
no trouble in holding their position as
the best track team in the state.
According to the papers, O. A. C.
has entered Davolt, her famous dis
tance man who was ineligible last year
on account of the four-year conference
rule. I he Columbia meet does nfl^t
come under these rules, so the action
is technically permissible. Under the
same interpretation, however, Oregon
can run Huston, and since the latter
is now unable to stay with baseball on
account of an injury to his arm, and
is training out for the California trip,
he could run as well as not. Trainer
Hayward, however, refuses to consider
the proposition, saying he will' win this
meet without Huston or not at all.
Marian Cummins, of Portland, was
the guest of the Gamma Phi Betas for
the week end.
Arthur Murphy, of Portland, (Stan

of the week.

BUILD UP GLASS AND
CLUB TEAMS IS PUN
PROPOSED FACULTY RESO
LUTIONS NOT TO OP
Will Encourage Intracollegiate
Sports, Not Discourage Inter
Till, faculty resolution relative to the
restriction of intercollegiate athletics,
which has caused so much discussion
both tin the campus and in the press, is
at present lying quietly on the table, and
assurances from prominent faculty mem
bers are to the effect that there is no
danger that it will seriously cripple any
of the popular intercollegiate sports. Un
less there is a special meeting of the
faculty it will not be taken up until the
regular May session.
The purpose of the measure is not
to bring about any radical elimination
of contests with other institutions, but
rather to aid and encourage the inter
class, interclub, and other intercolle
giate games, and prevent the larger form
of sport from crushing them. The idea
of restricting the number of intercol
legiate games is not a new one, the
number of football games in one season
being at present Restricted to five. It
is proposed that, the University co-ope
rate with other Northwest institutions
and secure some similar measure to pre
vent the undue extension of other sports.
“'1 hr necessity of this,” said Profes
sor h\ < 1. Young, who introdued the
motion, “comes from the fact that most
of the students now get their exercise
by proxy. Daily exercise by students
is as much a necessity as eating, and ex
perience seems to indicate that, with in
tercollegiate sports uppermost, the real
athletics are sacrificed. Many large
Eastern institutions, as Princeton, Am
herst, and Clark, have made movements
towards the subordination of intercolle
Another consideration urged in favor
of the measure is that if the University
should become a model the high schools
and grammar schools wouljd imitate.
Also, it is thought that the participation
of a large majority of students in inter
esting games would go a long waytoward
building up a more loyal, robust spirit
The play itself was a triumph for all
in the University.
MAKE PRACTICAL TESTS
ON COAL AND SLABWOOD
The University has bought a car load
of cheap coal for the purpose of exper
imenting on the cost of burning it as
compared with slabwood.
Some time next week the mechanical
engineers, under the direction of C. W.
Converse, will make a three day test of
the coal. The amount burned during
that time, and the volume and pressure
of the steam generated will be accu
rately measured. Some time later a sim
ilar test of the slabwood now used will
be made. Later on crude oil may be
