VOL. XII. EUGENE. OREGON. WEDNESDAY. FEB. 22. 1911. No. 33 PULLMAN PLAYS HERE NEXT WEEK ON 27828 THOUGH DEFEATED ONCE W. S. C. HAS STRONG TEAM 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 ites consequently do not think that they have settled the supremacy with Ore gon by any means. Manager Cocker 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 basket. 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 ter practice than the second team, which knows the first team’s plays and sig nals. Harvard has instituted a system un der which every Freshman has a Senior appointed his adviser. GYM RESERVED JETER 3 I lie past few days of good weather have given the athletes of college the tr ek fever.

ORATORS WILL BANQUET 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.

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. CHARLES“DOLL”GRAY 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. BASEBALL DIAMOND NOW POPULAR SPOT I lie baseball germ is in the air, and from present indications the epidemic will become widespread throughout the college before the season has advanced far. Already a bunch of hopefuls headed by "Bushes" Brown and Jack Luckcy are practicing daily on the college dia mond and chase the spheroid with an avidity that bespeaks great things for the future. No accidents have as yet been reported. BILL PICKS ALL STABS Makes Selection of Best Players Among Inter-Frat Te^ms Brooks, Beta Theta Fi. forward; Kay, Sigma Nu, forward; Bradshaw, Avava Club, center; Vierick, A. T. O., guard; Bean, Sigma Nu, guard and captain, constitutes the first all inter-frat team as selected by Coach Hayward. The second team is made up of Roberts, Kap pa Sigma, forward; Fisher, Beaver Club, forward; Broughton, Beta Theta Pi, center; Motschenbacher, A, T. O., guard; Perkins, Sigma Chi, guard and cautain. 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 erage. REGETTA IS ASSURED Juniors Appoint Committee to Ar range for Canoe Carnival This Spring At the Junior class meeting on Mon day evening, the feasibility of holding a canoe carnival during Junior Week End was discussed, and a committee appointed to secure a date and lay out plans for the undertaking. It was voted to turn over the surplus receipts from the Junior Prom to the Oregana, and to print in that publica tion individual pictures of the members of the class. The class selected as its delegates to the Inter collegiate Oratorical Contest, which is held in Eugene March 10th, Birdie Wise and Leon Ray. Harvard is to offer a course in the technique of printing next term. Vis it s to printing shops to study work there will be made in connection with the course. Kansas University has a precedent that a yell leader, if successful, shall keep the position through his college 1 course and invent the color schemes for the games. Ex-President Roosevelt delivered a lecture in the regular law course to a class in law at Harvard a few weeks ago. ASSOCIATED STUDENTS TALK DIVERS MATTERS TOM BURKE WOULD GIVE BASKETBALL TEAM “O’S” President Gillis Would Have the Library Closed at 10:00 on As sembly Days. At a meeting of the student body at 10 :(X) o’clock this morning, the Varsity monogram sweaters were awarded to nine of the members of last year’s fot ball team. The men are Captain Tay lor, Main, Grout, Latourette, Kelley, Walker, Jamison, Bailey and Fenton. All of these men having taken part in two or more halves in conference games. An amendment to the Associated Stu dent Body Constitution was offered by Burke, to award the “O’s” to the rep resentatives in Varsity basketball who play ten full halves in conference games. The motion calls for a block “O four by live and one-half by one inches. The amendment will be read before the Stu dent Body a week from Wednesday, and voted upon at the following meet ing. Due to the creditable performance of the team this year, and judging from the reception of the amendment by the students, little opposition is expected to arise against it. A resolution was offered by Presi dent Gillis, of the Senior class, having for its purpose increased attendance at the weekly assemblies, and asking that the Library be closed on Wednesday for the 10:00 o’clock meeting. The resolution was adopted and the action will be reported to the faculty.

The new men are showing the right spirit and we will wipe out our last year’s defeat by Washington. Hawkins asked all the new men to turn out and work with a determination, and assured the candi dates that a previous reputation was not necessary.
