Outcome of New System Anxiously
Awaited—$600 Saving Made in
At a meeting of the Athletic Coun
cil Monday evening, Louis H. Pink
ham, a graduate of this University in
the class of 1010, was elected head of
the staff of graduate coaches, who will
next year guide Oregon’s football team
to victory, as every Oregon student
hopes. $2,000.00 will be allowed this
year for the coaching staff and Pink
ham will be given $800 of this.
Former Oregon Players will Assist.
Assistant coaches have not been se
lected and will not be until udvice is
received from Alumni and from Pink
ham. However, George Hug, ’05, prin
cipal of the Eugene High School, and
an Oregon center of past fame, Win.
Main, ’12. captain of last year’s team
and one of the best backfield men ever
developed at Oregon, Gordon Moores,
’08, undoubtedly the best known end
that ever played on an Oregon team,
Dudley Clark, ’10, famous fullback
and punter, Fred Mullen, ’09, the
greatest place kicker developed in the
west, and one of the greatest kickers
in America, and others, have been
mentioned as possible assistants to the
head coach.
Pinkham Has Big Record.
Louis II. Pinkham during his time
at Oregon gained the reputation of be
ing one of the best all around tackles
in the west. He made the All-North
west team three consecutive years and
was known as one of the hardest and.
headiest players of his team. Pink
ham knows the game from beginning
to end, and this combined with his
ability to get along with men, prom
ises to give Oregon a head coach of
unusual ability.
This will be the first year a grad
uate system of football coaching has
been used at Oregon. Its adoption
was bitterly fought last fall by a large
number of alumni and students, and
equally as strenuously championed by
others. The system is an experiment
and the outcome of it will be watched
with a great deal of interest through
out the state. Something like $600
will be saved in salaries of coaches by
the system this year alone.
At a meeting of the Senior Picnic
Committee, composed of Cass Ken
nedy, Emma Waterman, and Bill
Main, it was definitely decided that
the affair should take place on the
banks of the McKenzie, June 5.
Lists will be posted immediately, to
give all Seniors who intend to make
the trip an opportunity to signify
their intention before the first of
June. A tax for the outing will then
be levied, proportional to the num
ber on the lists. The money is to be
paid in advance, the Senior women
will pay Emma Waterman, the men
will hand their hard earned shekels
to Kennedy.
Many and various eats are planned
by those placed on the eats commit
tee, who are Emma Waterman, Ja
vina Stanfield, Jessie Bibee, Ruth
Merrick, and Frieda Goldsmith.
