FIRST OF TWO PAPERS
Will Discuss Football Situation at
Oregon and Suggest Change in
. Portland, Ore., Dec. 3, 1911.
To the Editor:
Oregon has reaped the harvest of a
decade of folly in the pursuit of a hit
and-miss football policy. The recenl
defeats of the Varsity eleven are con
vincing proofs that our system is alto
gether wrong and sadly in need of re
pair. A review of our football his
tory during the past ten years shows
that our varsity has been coached b>
eight different men from as many col
leges and that no two of these men
fashioned their style of play aftei
the same system. Each coach drilled
the Oregon men according to his own
notions, undoing, in numerous in
stances, the work of his predecessor.
The result has been a small number
of championship teams and a woeful
lack of any definite and well-defined
system. Only in two instances has
the same man coached Oregon for two
successive years—in 1898 and 1899,
when Simpson, of California, was at
the helm, and in 1908 and 1909. when
Bob Forbes, of Yale, directed Oregon’s
play. In both instances, the team
was noticeably strong during the sec
ond year of the coach’s tutelage.
Simpson’s team of 1899 was the best
team in the Northwest that year, but
the 1900 team was even stronger,
largely because Kaarsberg, the coach,
was also a California ’varsity man
and was able to take up the work
where Simpson left off. “Locomotive”
Smith, another Californian, coached
Oregon in 1901, and despite the fact
that he had only three old ’varsity
men and that his team averaged only
151 pounds, made a very creditable
showing. Forbes had a stronger team
in 1909 than in 1908 and won all his
games except the one with Washing
ton, but in justice to the Yale coach,
it must be said that injuries deprived
him of a number of good men at crit
ical times and that Washington’s team
of that year was stronger than her
championship crew of this season.
The writer ventures the opinion that
had Forbes been retained or had he
been succeeded by some other man
from New Haven, the results of the
past two seasons would not have been
so disastrous. These matters of his
tory are mentioned merely to show
that in the few instances where Ore
gon has clung to one school of coach
ing, her teams have made creditable
records. Too much blame should not
be attached to Coach Warner for our
recent failures, for we men of the
University—students, alumni and
faculty—are more responsible than
he. We have stood by and watched
coaches come and go, never satisfying
ourselves with the work of a good man
or his system of play, but always
grasping for novelties.
It is time tor the men ot the Uni
versity to do some thinking1. If ath
letic sports are to be maintained,
there should be some correct policies
of coaching, schedules, management,
etc.—something of a permanent na
ture. The Northwest Conference and
the system of graduate management
are both steps in the right direction,
but the most serious question con
fronting Oregon athletics of today is
the matter of football coaches.
It has been suggested that we adopt
the graduate coach system, and as I
have given this subject some consid
eration, I desire to discuss it in these
columns, but do not feel warranted in
asking for any additional space at
this time. However, I shall outline
my views upon the proposed graduate
coach system in your next issue.

BASKET BALL PRACTICE
TO BEGIN IS WEEK
Capt. Jameson Predicts Champion
ship Team This Year for Ore
Although various wild and desul
tory games of basketball have been
taking place lately in the men’s gym
nasium, real Varsity practice will not
begin until after the Christmas holi
days. New men, however, will have
a chance for preliminary work dur
ing the next two weeks.
At present the schedule for con
ference games has not been fixed,
but on December 8th the dates for
the Northwest games will be decided
on at a meeting of representatives
from the various colleges.
According to Homer Jameson, cap
tain for two years of the Varsity bas
ketball team, there is an excellent
prospect for a championship team
this year. He says, “With only one
of last year’s men gone we are in
good shape for a winning team.’’
CLASS OF 15)14 GIVES
Members of 1914 Class Entertain
Students With Talented
At the Sophomore Class Hour,
which was held this morning in place
of the regular assembly, a program
was presented by talented members
of the class of 1914.
Before the rendering of the pro
gram, Bob Kellogg made a short
speach, thanking the student body in
behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Noland, and
the Sigma Nu fraternity, for the kind
actions taken by the student body at
the time of Noland’s death. Presi
dent Motchambacher then opened the
Class Hour with a short speech. The
second number was a piano solo by
Miss Norma Graves, and was enthus
iastically encored. Miss Egan gave a
good reading of “Alexander’s Feast,”
and the Sophomore sextette, composed
of Misses Miller, Avery, McQuinn,
Yoran, Poulsen, and Young, presented
a selection and were liberally en
cored. The real address of the hour
was made by Hawley Bean, and the
dry humor which prevailed throughout
his speech, brought down the house.
In conclusion the Sophomore quartette
composed of Matchambacher,Bradiger,
Fortmiller, and Stannard, sang sev
eral songs, and ended an interesting
hour with a medley.
