Seattle reports say that it was the roughest and fastest game yet played in the conference. Or egon started otf well and rolled up 8 points before Washington came down to earth and the score of the first half ended 14 to 11 in favor of the lemon yellow quintet. Oregon showed the better team work and were stronger in guarding. Walker was the star for Oregon, shooting four field goals. Olson and Clemenson were the sparklers of the Seattle squad, Ol son alone scoring twelve points for his team. The second game of the series will be played tonight, and the best Oregon can do is to tie Washington in the per centage column.

CAR COMPANY WOULD DISFS8URE CM tudents Make Strong Protest to Lawmakers Against Car Line on Lake’s Edge For the second time iii the last three years, the citizens of ,Lan.rcllnirst, a suburb of Seattle, have petitioned the state legislature to allow them to run the street car line, by means of a tres tle across Union bay, which is a part of the University of Washington campus. As in both previous times, but more strenuously, the students, faculty and alumni arc using their utmost efforts to down the measure. A petition has been circulated among the townsmen, and personal influence has been brought to bear upon the legislature with the view of saving the campus rfom this intru sion. The principal objection to the tres tle as embodied in the petition sent to the legislature by President Kane, of the University, and D. A. McDonald, Pres ident of the Alumni Association, are: 1. “The trestle would be unsightly and cut off about 160 acres of the Universi ty’s picturesque water area.’’ 2. ‘That the noise of the cars over the trestle will interfere with class work in the University buildings, and make useless the natural amphitheatre.” 3. “That the trestle will interfere with aquatic sports.” 4. “That the residents of Laurelhurst would themselves find a trestle unsight ly,” and 5. “A remonstrance signed by 9,000 voters, secured in one day, has been filed with the Secretary of State.” The outcome of the measure is yet in doubt, although a measure providing for a different trestle has passed the senate by a large vote.
