On Securing a Coach.
A movement is under way to bring
about a change in th^ system of coach
ing at Oregon. Our reverses on the
gridiron during the past four years
have set students and alumni to think
ing, with the result that the system
of hiring Eastern coaches is attacked,
and, by many, condemned.
It seems reasonable to lay our de
feats partly to the frequency with
which we change coaches. Every
coach introduces a new system, and
the men are compelled to change their
style of playing and development into
a team within the brief space of two
months. Selecting a coach from the
East is always uncertain and risky,
for in the first place we have not the
finances to engage a man of National
gridiron reputation and in choosing
a man with a good record as a player,
we run the risk of getting a player
and not a coach.
Perhaps a system of graduate
coaches, using the same style of play
year after year, would accomplish the
results its advocates claim it will.
Oregon has produced a number of
phenomenal players in the past, men
who have made good in the Eastern
colleges, and some of these might be
privailed upon to come to tho assist
ance of their alma mater during the
However, the name of former Coach
Bezdeck shines brightly on the walls
of our “hall of fame,” and if it is true,
that he is willing and anxious to re
turn to Oregon, as rumor says he is,
tho Emerald says, “Get him, by all
means, and forget any change of sy
stem for the present, for, without a
doubt, Bezdeck is the only man that
has been in the Northwest in years
that is the match of Gilmor Dobio as
a football coach.

IIow is it that the toiling stude,
Deep bending o’er his solemn book,
Is seen to shake his weary look,
And o’er some pleasant matter brood?
What lieth there upon the page,
So potent as to win a smile
From him whose countenance ere
Was like a sea-cliff seamed with age?
The Frosh who spake in divers tones,
Intent on Spanish, French and
P’orget the divers tongues they
Sore smit with dreams of turkey
For sudden on the bitter breeze,
They seem to hear sweet music low
Done by the bird which doth not
But gobbles, ‘neath the farmer’s trees.
The maimed and mutilated cat
Neglected lies upon the boards,
While in the Lab. sound those sweet
The Gobbler breathes when he is fat.
Ah well for them who toil and grind
That thus are sent the pleasant
And yet when all is said, it seems
We have one fearful fault to find.
For when the grind returns again
To grind as in the days of yore,
The dreams are thicker than before
I Concerning gobbler and the hen.
“This sad abstracted dreamy air
Which hath each would-be stude in
Makes us a problem grimly large,”
Quoth the Professor from his chair.
“And 1 propose that Science straight
Unseal her lips and tell us why
Sweet turkey-bones and pumpkin
Cause early dreams and visions late!”
