First Game In Agric Season Will
Come October 15, With Alum
ni Game.
By Special Correspondent
Corvallis, Sept. 29.—With a new
coach, a new captain, new rules to play
under, and practically a new team, the
the football season at the Oregon Agri
cultural College, just opened, bids fair
to present some pretty problems for so
lution. G. H. Schildmiller, a Dart
mouth man with an All-American rep
utation as an end, is the new head
coach, and it is expected that he will
repeat here his success of last season
with the University of Maine team.
One of his difficulties at the outset
is tlie fact that the captain-elect, E. W.
Wallace, of Independence, has gone to
Yale this year, and thus the team will
be deprived of his experienced leader
ship. His place has just been filled by
Bird X. Hawley, of Star, a senior stu
dent who was guard of the first team
last year, and for two seasons before
that did excellent work on the second
team in pounding the regulars into
shape. James Evenden, of Warrenton,
last year’s captain, is another of the old
men who will not return this year, a
serious loss to the line.
Walter Keck, of Hammond, a junior
civil engineer, and Floyd Huntley, of
Gold Beach, a sophomore in the agri
cultural course, both of whom made
places in several selections of All
Xorthwest teams last year, are back
in the moleskins again. With his speed,
weight, and ability as a kicker, Keck will
be most useful in the new game, and
Huntley, though new to the game last
year, should also be a powerful addi
tion to the new line-up.
Clifford Dunn, of Cloverdale, a senior
student in the mining school, and John
Enberg, of Baker City, another miner,
are both back again to add their strength
and experience to the O. A. C. grid
iron material. Dunn was a good, con
sistent player at center last year, and
Enberg, though somewhat slow, has
weight and experience of several seasons
to aid him in making good in the back
I he first game scheduled is that with
the alumni October 15, at Corvallis.
I he game for the 22nd of October has
not yet been settled, but Corvallis will
see the game with Washingeon State
College October 29, and that with Whit
man College November 5. Decision as
to playing the Oregon University team
in Portland or in Corvallis has not yet
been made, though the date has been
set for November 12. The season will
close November 24 with the game be
tween O. A. C. and the University of
Washington, at Seattle.
Bill Williams and Jim Neill are work
ing in the shops of the General Elec
tric company at Schenectady, N. Y.
Herman Witterberg plans to join them
there November 1st. All three of these
men graduated from the Electrical En
gineering department last spring.
Yaden of Klamath Secures Presi
dency—Flow of Eloquence
The freshmen held the first class
meeting in their University career on
Monday, September 27, at 4:00 o'clock,
in Villard Hall. Officers were elected
and committees appointed. Professor
Straub called the fledglings to order
and made a few interesting and timely
remarks. Mr. Houck, of Portland, was
made temporary chairman, and then the
chief business of the day, the election
of officers, was taken up. After all the
nominations were in the various nom
inees for President spoke, giving their
classmates a full account of their pedi
grees, and promising great works for
the future, in the event of their elec
Those elected were: President, Vin
cent Yaden, of Klamath Falls; Vice
President, Alsea Hawley, of Salem;
Secretary, Peter Crockett, of Pendle
ton ; Treasurer, Oscar Haugen, of Port
land; Sergeant at Arms, Harold Young,
of Eugene.
After the ballots were counted and
Mr. Yaden declared President, he made
a short speech expressing his gratitude
for the honor and his desire to be an
efficient officer.
Arrangements were made for the ap
pointment of committees on debate,
football and track work among the
freshmen, and for an executive meet
ing at Professor Straub’s home on Sat
urday afternoon.
Business Meeting of Glee Club
Held Thursday
At the first meeting of the Glee Club,
held in Villard Hall Thursday after
noon, Harry M. Stine was unanimously
chosen to manage the club this year,
in the place of Calvin Sweek, who was
elected to the managership last spring
but did not return to college. President
Ogden, in a short speech, outlined the
work for the year, and predicted a suc
cessful season for the club. He an
nounced that regular rehearsals will
commence next Monday at 4:00 o’clock.
The management announces that the
trip this year will include the Willam
ette Valley and Eastern Oregon towns.
There were a total of 603 students
registered in the University in the de
partments of Literature, Science and
Arts, on Friday afternoon.
Total registration for this semester
will easily reach 700, with good pros
pects of a larger number next semester.
The freshman class numbers 250. Al
though the number of daily registra
tions is daily diminishing, it promises
j the gain of ten per cent. The increase
i over the count taken this time last year
j is from 40 to 50.
Mrs. E. T. Thrall is with the Chi

Pres. Spencer Has Announced
His Committee Appointments
For Coming Year.
At the sophomore class elections held
Thursday at 4:00 P. M. Mr. Carlton
Spencer, of Cottage Grove was elected
class President; Miss Corinne Deger
rnark, of Portland, Vice President;
Miss Florence Cleveland,, of Portland,
Secretary;'Mr. Carrl Martsloff, also of
Portland, Treasurer' and Edward F.
Bailey, of Eugene, Sergeant at Arms.
An interesting feature of the election
was the reading of personal letters from
Mr. Vawter and Mr. Kay, appealing in
“all humility” for the right to vote by
proxy. This right was granted.
President Campbell, in his address to
the class, commended the class for its
attitude towards hazing. “The soph
omore class,” he said, “have done no
bly. Angels could do no more.” The
class showed an appreciation of these
remarks by a scarcely perceptible Hap
ping of angelic wings, creating a rus
tling, ethereal sound that pervaded the
whole building during a lapse of sev
eral seconds.
1 he nominations for the office of Ser
geant at Arms brought out most of the
avoirdupois in the class, also quite a
remarkable percentage of brains. On
the nomination of Mr. Edward Bailey,
the opinion was brought forward that
physique need not be the only deter
mining factor, and that, contrary to
common belief, brainy men were needed
for this office. The same plea was
made for Mr. Wentworth.
President Spencer lias announced the
appointments of the following commit
tees: Executive, Brosius, Collier and
Briedwell; football, Mount, Walker,
Waite, Wentworth and Morrison.
Charles Robison Leads Cohorts
Througih Houses
Seventy-eight enthusiastic students in
pajamas opened the rally season last
night with a house to house campaign.
The trouble started at the Avava club at
11:00 P. M., under the leadership of
the redoubtable Charles Robison. Sing
ing and cheering, the men in lock step
marched to the different boys’ frater
nity and club houses. A cheer would
be given in front, and then the serpen
tine would march through the house,
annexing the pajama-clad inmates.
The serpentine was kept up through
town, terminating at the St. Francis
hotel, where speeches were called for
from Coach Warner and Trainer Hay
ward. Though strictly informal, the
affair was enjoyed by all and succeeded
in arousing considerable preseason en
Utah has but five old men back for
the football squad.
Professor Kurtz and Chuck Tay
lor Take Charge of Classes.
The new gym is a busy place these
(lays, with men training for football, i
track, and besides the regular gym I
classes, and the classes in boxing and
At this time of the year it is particu
larly true that a greater amount of work
and supervision is needed. Trainer Hay
ward is kept busy registering the men
and looking out for new material along
all the lines in his department. There
are now two assistants in the regular
gymnasium work—Mr. Kurtz, a Cornell
man, who is registered in the Engin
eering department, and has four hours
a day in the gym; also “Chuck” Tay
lor, captain of the football team, who
has two hours of regular class work.
Although college has only begun,
there are already one hundred and liftv
eight men in regular gym work, sixtv
cight in the boxing classes, and 34 in
the wrestling classes. So there is op
portunity for plenty of enthusiasm along
all these lines.
In an interview with Mr. Hayward
yesterday, in speaking of football, he
said: “The football material is good,
but there is not enough of it. We need
the entire support of everyone on and
off the field. It is up to the students
to show the old time enthusiasm that
existed when T took up work here at
the Varsity. And it may he that some
of the freshmen will make places on the
team over the old men.”
Cornelia Pinkham Will Captain
Girls’ Eleven
Will the Varsity girls come through,
and show their interest in football and
incidentally the men, by attending foot
hall practice?
This is the question. And if they
will, thus showing their loyalty and
helping to increase the Oregon spirit,
then Trainer Hayward has promised to
give a banquet at the close of the foot
ball season to the eleven girls who have
attended practice most regularly and
shown the most interest and enthusi
Mr. Hayward said yesterday: “I
wish the girls would show their old
time interest, and I hope this little
proposition of mine will he taken up.
'I he banquet will he a good one—the
Oshurn Hotel will he made to do its
Cornelia Pinkham, ’ll, will he tem
porary captain, and will keep a record
of the attendance. Several of the alum
nae who have been taken into the secret
