Many surprises, some of wiiich por
tend radical changes in the future line
up of Oregon’s track team, were regis
tered during the try-outs for the team to
enter the tri-state meet at Seattle that
were held, despite the rain and mud, on
Monday and Tuesday.
Monday afternoon, on the open track,
Ted Holmes finished second in the high
hurdles, which were won by Hawkins
in the fast time of 15 4-5; beating Sap
Latourette by a couple of feet. This
race was run again twice on Tuesday,
and both times these two men tied for
second place, but Latourette won his
place on the team by taking second in
the low hurdles.

Kay second and Hawkins third. On
Tuesday, in the two fast heats run on
the indoor track, the results were com
pletely reversed. Kay finished first, in
10 1-5 seconds; Johns second; Hawkins
third and Bristow fourth.
The shot put was also a closely con
tested event. On Monday Kellogg was
best with a put of 36 feet 11 inches, but
outon Monday Henderson shoved the
sphere out 39 feet.

the twelve best point winners from

ANNUAL APRIL FROLIC
IS HELD BY CO-EDS
Stunts Given by Sororities, In
dividuals and Clubs Show
Talent and Originality
I lie annual April frolic was held last
Saturday night in the new gymnasium.
Practically every woman in the Univer
sity was there, and the evening was a
thoroughly enjoyable one.
Several stunts were given by the va
rious sororities, clubs and individual
girls, some of them showing talent and
originality. When the stunts were com
pleted a grand march was formed, led
by Frances Oberteuffer and Grace La
Brie. This was especially pretty and
showed to good advantage the artistic
costumes of the co-eds.
During the march each girl was given
a present from a grab bag, containing
everything from children’s toys to soap.
The grand march was followed by
dancing, which occupied the rest of the
evening. During the dances refresh
ments were served upstairs.
Time For Signing Up Extended
Until Next Friday
The last date when entries may be
made fur the handicap tennis tourna
ment lias been postponed to Friday
night, on account of the rainy weather.
Manager Newland announces, however,
that there will he no further postpone
ment, and that every one who wishes
to try for the cup must be signed up
by that time.
A handicap doubles tournament will
he held in conjunction with the singles
tournament, announced Manager New
land today. 'I lie winning team will be
awarded a cup under the same condi
tions that apply to the singles tourna
ment—that it he held a year or until
it is won three times, when it becomes
the personal property of the winners.
All entries must he in for the doubles
by Friday night also. An enrollment
fee of fifty cents per team is charged.
Those wishing to enter the tournament
can sign up at the court bulletin board
or with Manager Newland, Bert Pres
cott or Harry Stein.
A committee of five of the best tennis
players of the University will handicap
the men. “It will be difficult this year
to match the men fairly in every case,
because the committee will not be able
to see all of those entered play before
classifying them, but every effort will
he made to have the matches as even as
possible,” says Manager Newland. “In
a handicap meet the poorest player has
as good a chance of taking the cup as.
the best, and it is to be hoped that a
large number will enter the tournament.”
On account of the Varsity tryouts and
the tournament coming so close together
there is bound to be some conflict, and
when there is it is requested that the
handicap games give way to the Var
sity tryouts until the team is chosen,
then the handicap games will have the
right of way.’
Professor Schafer will give a party
for his major students Friday evening.

Coach Kelley is well pleased with
the prospects for the Oregon baseball
team during the remainder of the sea
On the recent trip through Washing
ton and Idaho the batting and base run
ning of the Oregon men was of high
class, the loss of games being attributed
to poor fielding and the overworked
condition of llenkel and Word, who
composed the pitching staff. I he lent
porary loss of McKenzie unbalanced the
Oregon inlield and was in a great mens
lire responsible for the loose fielding.
During the remainder of the season
Coach Kelly will switch McKenzie to
short stop and McIntosh, Newland or
Mount will perform at third, with hon
ors in favor of McIntosh because of
bis superior batting and base running.
A special effort will be made to bolster
up the fielding of the players, and with
the present hard hitting club, champion
ship prospects were never brighter.
Next Saturday afternoon the Oregon
team will play the Springfield semi
