Baseball Candidates Will Turn
Oat Monday If Weather Per
There has been a serious hitch in the
.arrangements, and it is possible that
after all Dolly Gray may not be the Var
sity baseball preceptor.
The trouble seems to be that Gray
wants a full three months contract,
which is longer than Oregon needs a
coach, as the season here is short. A
Mr. Lynch, late of Syracuse University,
has applied for the position and stands
a fair chance of securing it, as he comes
excellently recommended from Virgil
Earle, '06. who once captained the Var
sity nine.
The athletic council will act definitely
on the matter this next week. At the
last meeting of the council, Si Stevens,
’12, better known under the diamond so
briquet of Hal Chase, was chosen as
sistant manager of baseball for the com
ing season. The choice was made in
recognitions of Stevens' steadiness and
his interest in the diamond game.
A card has been posted in the Gym
for the aspiring candidates to sign up.

Five Games Have Been Played
In Inter-Sorority
Much interest and enthusiasm are be-'
in" shown in the Inter-sorority games.
Each afternoon at 5:00 o’clock a game
is played before a good natured audi
ence, which laughs heartily at dignified
and prominent upperclass girls, wildly
chasing the ball and trying desperately
to keep from sliding over the fatal yel
low lines. The referee and line guards
'■re kept busy calling fouls, for over-'
guarding and stepping over the lines.
The Facutlv team, which is composed
of Dr. Stuart, Miss Perkins, Miss Hair,
Mrs. Barker, Mrs. Clarke, Mrs. Brown
and Miss Morgan, put up a most inter
esting and amusing game against the
Lambda Rlios. Elated by their success, |
they are issuing challenges to all the
sorority and class teams.
Next week Gamma Delta Gamma will
play Chi Omega, Tri Delta will play
Lambda Rho, and the Faculty team will
play any and all teams accepting their!
challenge. Kanpa Alpha Theta will play

College Romance Culminates In
Quiet Home Wedding
Gordon Moores, ’08. and Jessie Hur
ley, '09, were married in Salem Thurs
day evening. The ceremony was wit
nessed by but a few of their intimate
friends, and occurred at the home of the
groom’s uncle, Mr. A. N. Moores. The
bride was attended by her sorority sis
ter, AI iss Ruth Hansen, 10, who is at
present a member of the Salem High
School faculty.
Though the marri ige comes as a cul
mination of a college romance, the news
came as somewhat of a surprise to col
lege friends of the couple, none of wtiorn
1 ad any intimation of what was to oc
Roth the contracting parties were
prominent and popular students while
in college. The groom was for four
years end on the Varsity football team
an all-Northwest man and captained the
1907 team. He was also a strong pobit
winner on the track, holding the North
west record for the 220 hurdles. He
was captain of the team in 1907. Last
fall Moores was assistant coach.
Miss Hurley was prominent in liter
ary, dramatic and social circles and was
one of the most popular members of the
Gamma Fhi sorority. After finishing at
Oregon she graduated in 1910 from the
Baltimore Women’s College.
Soccer Field Converted Into Field
For Pr".tice of Agile Running
“It gives more men a chance to get
into athletics and is beneficial to track
men, as they receive the same training
that they get in early track work, and
they get some enjoyment out of it. It
relieves the steady grind. When train
ing ceases to be a pleasure, it becomes
work,” was the way Trainer Hayward
expressed it when asked the reason for
sending the track aspirants out onto the
soccer field armed with netted clubs.
Rill went on to say that he considered
lacrosse to be the best exercise of the
present day games, as it brought every
muscle in the body into play and re
quired more thinking than a philosophy
quiz. As a wind developer it was ex
cellent, and above nil was an outdoor
The main requisite of the lacrosse
player is cleverness in handling the
stick and speed and accuracy in pass
ing and receiving the ball. Lacrosse
is essentially the Canadian national
game, and is played from the public
school boys on the vacant lots up to
Provincial teams. It requires no super
abundance of “beef,” as football, and
the small man that is a clever stick han
dler is the better player, provided, of
course, he can think quick and keep
his temper under control.
The field is one hundred yards long
and generally averages eighty yards in
width. At each end are placed upright
posts six feet high and six feet apart.
A net is stretched behind these posts
to receive the balls that are thrown be
tween the posts for a goal, which counts
one point. The ball is “faced off” in
fbe middle between the two centers,
then begins the running and passing
game, much the same as basketball, until
a man is in position to Hoot for a goal.
There are twelve men on a side, and all
play the field except the goal keeper,
who stands in front of the net to stop
trys for a goal. Since the game re
quires so much passing, team work is
the essential part, and team plays are
executed with dazzling speed bv the
clrnnpionship teams.
The Oregon men arc taking kindly
to the game, and some are becoming
proficient in handling the stick. Tt is
probable that a game or two will be
pulled off before the year closes.
“All Seniors who hnve not yet had
their pictures taken for the Oregan .

For Purely Nominal Fare One
Way See the College’s Fair
est in Clever Stunts
Never let the huniiliatmg charge be
preferred against voti that you did not
see the \ . W. C. A. Country Fair. The
stigma of such a charge will brand any
one with social oblequoy as well as fill
him with remorse and regret that he
missed the biggest thing in his whole
college course.
I o begin with, there is Latourette
and Burke’s Abyssinian Rascals, which
are pronounced by those who have seen
rehearsals to he absolutely the best
collection of Coon Shouters ever assem
Med. Some hitherto unpublished sen
s-ations are promised which'are expected
to make even the sourest members of
the faculty chortle with glee.
’I he Orpheum program includes six
stellar numbers that have been diverted
from regular circuit and brought to the
local stage only at a great sacrifice of
time and money.
'Pile different clubs, fraternities and
sororities are each running a booth,
where rich and spicy attractions are
temptingly displayed and advertised be
fore the gaping rabble.
It will really he the greatest carnival
of fun and burlesque ever put on at
Oregon, and to miss it will be to brand
ones slelf with the lasting, ineffable
charge of being a “dead one.”
Inter-Fr t Games Scheduled Be
fore Varsity Contests
Arrangements for the reviving of the
old Doughnut inter-frnt baseball league
will he made at a meeting called by Man
ager Luckey for next Tuesday night
at 7:30. Each fraternity or club ex
pecting to enter a team is requested to
send a delegate to the meeting, which
i will he held at the dormitory.
The plan this year is to play all games
up to the semi-finals, at least, before the
| Varsity schedule begins, so as not to
interfere with the regular Varsity prac
11 ice. In the pa t two ve-ws there was
occasional friction because the frat and
Varsity teams wanted the baseball di
j amond 't the same time. In drawing
up the schedule this year all trouble will
he avoided.
The Doughnut league was started two
years ago. through the efforts of Lair
Gregory, then editor of the short lived
Midnight Doughnut. “Greg” put up a
s:lver cun, the “Doughnut Cup,” for the
winning team and took charge of the
league for the first year.
Each year the cup is awarded to the
| team coming out at the top of the league,
j and it becomes the permanent property
i of the club winning it twice.
