In Previous Oregon Game North
erners Had Their Star Forward
Lowery on Disabled List.
The Varsity basketball squad will be
given a chance to relieve the sting of
the defeat at the hands of the Univer
sity of Washington quintet when the
Washington State College lines up for
the two games February 27 and 28. In
spite of their defeat by Oregon on its
own floor, the Pullman team is coming
with a determination to win back its lau
rels and get in the race again.
The score of the game at Pullman was
32-19, but this in no way indicates the
comparative strength of the two teams.
Lowery, the best W. S. C. forward, was
discharged from the hospital on the
day of the game, and insisted upon
playing regardless of his lack of strength
and practice. Lowery was an All
Northwest forward last year and was
chosen by the Spokesman-Review as a
running mate for Jamison in this year's
all-star aggregation. The other members
of the team were, Fenton, center, and
Dalquist, state guard, and Clemenson,
LT. of W., guard.
The second game with W. S. C. was
forfeited to Oregon and the Pullman

have settled the supremacy with Ore

line expresses his opinion that Wash
ington State has the hardest team to
beat in the conference, as they are par
ticularly strong in the forward posi
tions. Lowery is a dribbling forward
that is hard to stop, and a sure shot,
dangerous from any position near the
The Varsity is to undergo a hard
course of practice in preparation for the
games, as Coach Hayward does not in
tend to take any chances with the foxy
Northerners. The two inter-frat league
leaders, the Betas and the Sigma Nils,
are to be matched against the Varisty,
also the Freshman and all inter-frat
team. Coach Hayward believes that
these new terns will give the Varsity bet

The third annual indoor track meet

M. From the number, class and nov
elty of events, it promises to outdo all

The wrestling tournament is expect

Delegates to State Oratorical Con
test Will be Entertained at
Frat Houses
On March 10th, fifty-four delegates
of the Inter-collegiate Oratorical Asso
ciation will visit Eugene as the guests
of the University of Oregon. They
represent six other colleges and univer
sities of the state.
Most of these delegates will be enter
tained by the sororities and fraternities.
Many of the houses have already con
sented to take their full share of vis
itors. A committee of seventeen, one
member from each fraternity, will be
appointed to meet the delegates at the
train and escort them to the various
houses. If each house entertains three
or four, as is expected, all will be pro
vided for.
A banquet will be given at the Ho
tel Osburn for the visitors after the
contest. This is expected to be as in
teresting an event as the contest itself.
Nearly two hundred were present at
the banquet given at Salem last year. ^
One and one-third rates have been
secured on the Southern Pacific. The
delegates will probably arrive on the
2:00 o'clock train and leave some time
the next day.
A greater number of men are interest
ed in swimming than in any ojtjher
branch of athletics.

Has Had Much Baseball Experi
ence in the Pacific
Charles R. “Dolly” Gray, of Portland,
has been elected to the position of
coach of the University baseball team
for the season of 1911. Dolly is a
Northwest leaguer, and has played three
seasons of professional ball, one with
Boise in the Inter-Mountain League, and
one each with the Spokane “Indians”
and Vancouver, B. C. He is an infielder
of no mean ability, but his work wilh
the willow has been light for the last
two seasons. He has had two years'
experience as coach of the Columbia
University team in the Inter-Scholas
tic League, and both seasons turned out
winning teams.
Dolly learned the game in the back
lots around St. Johns, and played semi
professional ball in the Tri-City League.
He also played on the Multnomah Club
team. Dolly has plenty of “pip” and a
vocabulary prolific in explosives with
which to arouse youngster to do great
deeds and hurry lagging ball players
to nervous prostration.
Who Will Coach Varsity Baseball
Statistics of last year’s graduating
class at the Wellesley College show
that out of a class of three hundred
young women, two hundred and for
ty-five are already married or about
to be.

from present indications the epidemic
will become widespread throughout the
college before the season has advanced
Already a bunch of hopefuls headed
by "Bushes" Brown and Jack Luckcy

forward; Broughton, Beta Theta Pi,
center; Motschenbacher, A, T. O.,
guard; Perkins, Sigma Chi, guard and
In speaking of the above selection,
Coach Hayward said: “I have not cho
sen the men who made the most bas
kets, but the most heady, all around
players; the men who were strongest
on team work and speed. There were
many men who showed up well in a
few games, but were off in others, and
I have tried to pick the most consis
tent players. There were also a number
of good men, as Harry Stine, for in
stance, who are good players, but who
did not play in enough games to account
in the final lineup.”
Many players also did not have a
good chance to show up account of be
ing on a losing team. Again one good
man could not play team work if his
teammates did not class with the iv
