UNIVERSITY OF OREGON VOL. XII.__.__EUGENE, OREGON, WEDNESDAY, OCT. 5. 1910. ““ ■ ^" 1 1 ■■■■ - '■ ■■ FALL INTER-GLASS TRACK MEET GOMES OCTOBER 15 MUCH NEW MATERIAL OUT AND MANY SURPRIS ES DUE Prospect of Annual Meet is Bring ing Out Crop of Old and New Men. The annual fall interclass track meet will occur October 15, and promises to be of unusual interest. At first plans were made to restrict the entries to the classes of 1913 and 1914, to bring out new material, but so many old men have begun fall training that all four teams will be eligible, day. “All of the old players are back many men as they like, and there will be no restrictions on the number of entries for each man. This meet is always interesting, be cause of the number of surprises sprung and the advent of dark horses. The class of 1914 gives promise of a wealth of track material which should make the old timers look to their lau rels. From his records, Huggins, the Hood River lad should show McClure a good tune in the mile. McConnell i. haif-miler from Waba Walla, is out; also Brooks, a high jumper. Fiser, the Ontario sprinter and pole vnulter, is trying out for football ami v ill not enter track this fall. MilLr, the Washington high school half -milcr, will not be out on account of a recent illness. These new men and many others, together with last year’s men, promise the best track material in recent years. There will be the usual sixteen of events, though some of the distances may be reduced out of consideration for the unconditioned men. Y.M.C.A. BOOK EXCHANGE BUSIER THAN LAST YEAR The Y. M. C. A. book exchange and employment bureau is working more satisfactorily than ever this year. I he University Y. M. C. A. conducts an exchange for second hand goods and employment bureau at its office in the Dorm. The sales have amounted to over $250.00, and during registration week three men were kept busy supply ing the demand for text books. Over one thousand volumes pass through its hands each year, and it has on hand now more than five hundred volumes. Last year the association han dled over $400.00 and this year Secre tary Brown expects the sales to exceed $500.00. The exchange also handles second hand pennants, tennis raquets and balls, track and gym shoes and all athletic goods. The sale of new; pennants, arid pictures has been discontinued on ac count of the objection of down-town merchants. r»G rn* Over 65 students during the year of 1909-1910 were furnished employment, ranging all the way from lawn mowing to permanent positions' by wfitcfi they could earn their room and board. WILL HAVE BOXING AND WRESTLING TOURNEY In January Gym Will be Scene of Inter-Class “Go” Some time in the middle of the year, probably in January, a boxing and wrestling tournament will be pulled off iu tlie gymnasium. This new feature in L niversity athletics will take the form of inter-class affairs, although it is said that Trainer Hayward would not side step a wrestling tournament with an other college. The primary object, however, is to develop as many students as possible. In speaking of this, Bill said, “I be lieve that boxing and wrestling de velop a man’s mental and physical side more than any other form of exercise.” Each class will enter teams in the tournament, and each man will meet an opponent of about the same weight. The winner of these ‘‘goes” will annex a certain number of points for his team, and the class having the largest number of points will be declared winner. LEADING MEN OF STATE SPEAK BEFORE Y.M.C.A. The Y. M. C. A. men’s meetings will begin Friday evening in Deady Hall. President Campbell will speak in place of Dr. Hinton of the Portland White Temple, whose address has been post opned until later in the year. Some of the strongest speakers in, the state will be secured and addresses of real value and meetings of life and en thusiasm are promised. The music will be a special feature of each meeting. Mr. Lamb, a fresh man glee club man, will sing at the first meeting. The reputation for promptness estab lished last year will be maintained at any cost and the meetings will begin at seven o’clock, and promptly close at ten minutes before eight. Varsity Squad Strengthened Ma terially by Freshman Recruits Basketball practice for the season of 1910 will start next week. A special meeting of all men interested in the game will he called within the next few days. A system of interclass games will be arranged whereby It will be pos sible to bring out and develop basket ball material. This system was very successful last year. A great deal of basketball strength is expected from the freshman class. Fenton, the phenomenal center on last year’s Dallas aggregation, is in college and will unquestionably strengthen the Varsity squad. Therlijare a number of 'other men newly registered with consid erable basketball experience and glowing records of past accomplishments. On account of the conflicting hours result ing from gym classes, basketball prac tice will probably be held late in the evening. An attempt is being made by the basketball 'management ‘ to Grange (Continued on page 4) VELL LEADER ROBISON PLANS SMOKER RALLY EATS AND SMOKES WILL BE PROVIDED FOR NOVEL RALLY With Faculty Approval, Smoker Will Be Held in Gymnasium Night Before Alumni Game If Yell Leader Robison’s plans mate rialze, Oregon students wll be treated to something new in the rally line. There is a scheme, peding upon faculty ap proval, for a gigantic smoker rally at the gym on the Friday night betore the alumni game. Not only will plenty of noise be served, but weinies, sandwiches, Jdoughnuts, cider and tobacco will he used to arouse enthusiasm. A rally with eats and smokes is a new feature at Oregon and seems to have been originated by our versatile Charles. I here will he no prizes offered for yells and songs this year, but any new ones handed in will be paid for if available. The new “team” yell was tried last night with marked success, and hereafter will be added to Oregon's collection. Rooting practice will be held only on three nights out of the week, instead of every night as formerly. The evenings selected will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Mr. Robison has appointed as assist ants, Lyle Brown, Charles Randall, Chester Moores and Cass Kennedy. GLASS RUSH IS LIKELY Student Affairs Committee Is Considering Ways and Means Those who look for something to hap pen between the sophomores and fresh men will not be disappointed. The “clash,” however, will he characterized by good feeling and healthy rivalry and will take place according to the prear ranged plans of representatives of both classes. President Spencer, of the sophomore class, stated that as yet no definite plans had been made, pending the meeting of the student affairs committee this af ternoon. “After three weeks of harmony be tween the classes,” was President Spen cer’s comment, “it is safe to assume that the crisis has been passed, and for the first time in the history of the Univer sity there has been no hazng. The nov elty of the situation makes it difficult to state just what will be done in the way of testing the mettle of the newcom ers. It’s possible, however, that a tug of war may be arranged for, or a flag rush. In the latter case a pole sur nf&uffted by a flag will be set up in the middle of' life- football field, for in stance,,and at a given signal the two classes r'usfj from opposite ends-of the field and '\vflll endeavor to secure mas tery of the flag. These are only sug gestions; after the meeting of the stu deufj affair committee, when we wll learn the methods of other schools, plans will be made public.” SENIORS TO ORGANIZE NEW HONOR SOCIETY Activities Are Graded According To Amount of Honor In Each 1 lie "official" senior honor society will he formed some time this month, in accordance with a plan evolved the past summer by President Campbell, the pres ident of the student body, and the com mittee front the senior class. d he first members of this society will be chosen by a committee from the fac ulty and alumni, composed of three members from each. These committee members will be elected respectively by the faculty and alumni. After the first members of the society are named, they will draw up their own constitution and by-laws, except that the membership requirements shall not be changed. These members will also decide upon a name for the society. Both men and women are eligible for membership. A man must have earned eight points and a woman six. This distinction was made because of the lar ger held of opportunity open to the men of the University. The credit points must de distributed over at least two lines of student activity and may not be collected from more than four.

She was stricken with the disease on Sep tember 14, and hardly regained con sciousness during the next two weeks.

AHRIG GAME WILL BE PLAYED AT CORVALLIS NOV. 12 IS DATE; .NOV. 5, FRESHMEN PLAY HERE Manager Watson Will Organize Big Bunch of Rooters For Ex cursion to the Agric. Town. After considerable bickering and de lay the place and date of the annual Oregon O. A. C. football game has been finally arranged. The big game will take place in Corvallis on Novem ber 12. The reason for scheduling the game in Corvallis instead of in Portland, as was once planned, was the insistence of the merchants and people of Cor vallis that they were entitled to the one big campus game. Color was lent to their plea by the fact that three of the last five games have been played in Eugene and the remaining two in Portland. Manager Watson is arranging for an excursion train to carry rooters to the game. Last year C). A. C. brought a chorus of about twelve hundred voices to hack their team, and it is expected that Oregon will send at least six hun dred to support the lemon and green. Manager Watson predicts that O. A. C. will have in the neighborhood of fifteen hundred rooters this year, and says that it will take at least six hundred Oregon backers to make a showing aginst them. The excursion train will leave Eugene at 7:30 or 8:00 A. M. and return at 6:00 or 7:00 in the evening. A round trip rate of one and one-third fare will probably be arranged. Manager Watson also states that now the yell leader is appointed, the student hand will he reorganized to lead the rallies. A new feature in Oregon's football schedule thk year will be the game between the freshmen of Oregon and those of O. A. C., which is being ar ranged to take place on Kincaid Field on November 5.. Freshman games in the East arc said to be almost as good drawing cards as the Varsity struggles, and it is hoped they will become popular here. If this year’s contest is success ful, the game will probably be made an annual affair. Owing largely to the fact that Varsity freshmen are barred, the chance that Oregon has to produce a strong eleven of youngsters is any thing but bright. Manager Watson urges all freshmen who have had pre vious experience to turn out and help save the day. 1912 Organise* for the Year With New Officers The class of 1912 met this afternoon, organized for the year, and elected offi cers. The result of the ballot was: President, David McDaniels, of Port land; Vice President, Hazel Wightman; Secretary, June Knox; Treasurer, Ed ward, Himes; Sergeant at Arms, Wil liam Dunlap, better known as “Punch.” The presidency comes to McDaniels as reward'fdr three years of achievement on the track, where lie has bee none of Trainer Hay ward’s star “quarter horses,” having won many points for the Varsity teams.
