New Scenery and Costumes in
Readiness for Play at Eugene
Theater—Vic Voight in Lead
ing Role.
Probably the most elaborate and pre
tentious dramatic effort ever attempted
by the students of the University will
he “The Professor’s Love Story,” under
the auspices of the Dramatic Club, in
the Eugene Theatre next Thursday night
as the opening event in this year’s Junior
Week End program.
The members of the cast, under the
directorship of Professor Glen, are
working industriously to make their
most ambitious effort a success. Over
a hundred dollars’ worth of new scen
ery and properties have been ordered
and the girls are to appear in new cos
tumes prepared especially for this oc
casion. Vic. Voight, in the title role,
as the forgetful Professor, acquits him
self creditably, being especially good at
forgetting, .as bis teacher can doubt
less testify.
I he following is the cast of charac
ters : Professor Goodwills, Victor
Voight; Lucy White, his coy little sec
retary, Ruth Duniway; Miss Goodwil
ls, his sister, Maud Reals; Dr. Cousins,
the Professor’s London physician, L. j.
Canfield; Dr. Yellowleaves, who attends
the Profesor in the country, Lair Greg
ory; The Dowager, Juliet Cross; Lady
Gilding, who wants to marry the Pro
fessor, Bertha Cummings; Sir George
Gilding, intimate friend of the Pro
fessor, Edward Himes; Efifie, the ser
vant of the Professor, Naomi William
son. E. E. Dunton as Pete, and Ro
land Kennedy as I lenders, are Scotch
workmen, both of whom are in love
with Elbe.
The play begins in London, where the
overworked Professor meets the Dow
ager and falls in love with her. How
ever, his breakdown compels him to
move to his country home, Tullocmnins.
Doctor Cousins does his part hy admin
istering to the Professor the proper
remedy for every catalogued disease,
from the chilblains to lumbago. Each
cure, though, fails to touch the scat of
the disturbance, which is, in reality, only
ihe Professor’s love-laden heart. As
the Professor regains his strength, he
finds himself in love with Lucy. He
confides his infatuation for his secre
tary to Dr. Cousins and the Dowager
suddenly discovers that she has been
turned down hard. The engagement
of Lucy and the Professor is implied
if not announced, and they live hap
pily ever afterward.
The Scotch servants manipulate a
rich plaid broque, like headliners, and
the perfidious Henders mixes them into
a humorous by-plot.
The play is particularly rich in fun
and comical situations. It is too elab
orate to be given in Villard Hall, as
the club's former sketches have been,
and will be played in the Eugene Thea
is Oregon dead in track.- Never!
Fun, Mixed With Errors, Fur
nish Sensation On Prac
tice Diamond
A comedy of errors was enacted on
the practice diamond when Kilpatrick’s
Pleasant Hill team took the long end
of a 4 to 0 score fro mthe University
second team last night. The second
team furnished the errors, while Kil
patrick’s urchins—some of them taller
than the hats they weilded—furnished
the comedy. Their pitcher had every
thing and used his curves effectively,
allowing hut one hit. He was given
perfect support by his baity-giant field
1 lie visitors earned one run, and the
others just slipped in while their oppo
nents were booting the ball around the
I he second team expect to do some
hard practicing during the next two
weeks, and hope to retrieve themselves
in a return game.

I'lie contest for tlit* state baseball
championship will begin next Saturday,
when the (). A. C. nine will meet Coach
Kelly’s men on the local diamond for
two games, one at 10:00 o’clock in the
morning and the other at 2:30 in the
afternoon. These will be two* of the
four remaining games in Eugene, the
other two being scheduled for the fol

interesting of the year. Richer and

Both Games Full of Sensational
Fielding Stunts—Two Home
Runs Off Henkel’s Delivery
lu the second game of the series played
at Midway Park Thursday afternoon,
the Cniversity of Washington baseball
artists trimmed Torn Kelly’s Oregon
club by the score of 100 to 1. Word
was on the mound for Oregon, and
though hit freely, the overwhelming
score fails to do credit to his pitching,
l lie ()rcgon inlield was decidedly off
color. I'lieir booting the ball at crit
ical times was mainly responsible for
(Iregon’s defeat. Jamison at first, how
ever, accepted difficult chances and wild
throws without an error. In the out
field Captain Clarke played his usual
reliable game, accepting easy and diffi
cult chances with equal certainty. For
Washington, every man was a bright
and particular star in some department
id' the game, and without doubt made
up the fastest and best balanced team
seen on the local diamond this year.
Wednesday’s game, however, tells a
different tale, and the Oregon nine an
nexed a hard earned victory by the
score of 3 to 2. The result of the game
was questionable, and the big crowd
of students in attendance were kept
"on their toes” until the last visitor was
retired in the ninth chapter. Henkel,
the big Oregon southpaw, was in good
form and, aided by consistent support
at critical times, managed to keep the
Washington sluggers under control.
1 he game was tilled with sensational
fielding and hard hitting, both the Wash
ington scores being due to home run
clouts by Baker and feats.
Jamison on first starred for Oregon,
accepting everything that came his way
in big' league style. Dud. Clarke saved
the game for Oregon in the eighth

Both The Women’s Debating
Team and Law School Lose
Hard Fought Contest
Washington won a double victory
from Oregon last night when the Var
sity co-eds and the Law Department’s
debating teams went down before them
in closely contested debates.
I he former was a two to one decis
ion, in which the honors were extreme
ly even, .and many thought the losing
team did the better work. Miss Birdie
Wise, 12, was leader of the Oregon
team. She was ably supported by Miss
Fay Clark, '12, and Miss Corinne Deg
I erntark, ’13.
