GAME COULTER CARRIES BALL OVER LINE IN FIRST PERIOD AND FOSTER KICKS GOAL. CORNELL IS STAR (By Jimmie Roberts.) Oregon met her second defeat of the season this afternoon when John nie Bender’s Pullman crew swept the varsity off their feet early in the first quarter and scored the only touch dowm of the game. The credit of the victory or the blame of defeat be longs to no individual but was a case of two evenly matched teams fighting j it out, with oue having the necessary reserve to put the ball over when their opportunity came. Forward Passes Score. The play was not sensational. W. S. S.’s accurate forward passing in the early stages of the game worked the damage and enabled them to get within striking distance. The Pull man backs then, ripped in and finally pushed Coulter over the line. After that it was a see-saw contest, in which Oregon had two opportunities to score. Oregon Loses Two Chances. The first failed on an uncompleted forward pass over the line, Walker to Bradshaw. W. S. C. took the ball on the fifteen yard line and Kienholtz booted it out of danger. Again in the last quarter Oregon carried the fight into Pullman territory and Fenton, who had replaced Anunsen, pulled down a forward pass on the five yif d line. Varnell claimed that the pass was uncompleted because Fenton al lowed the ball to touch the ground be fore he was tackled. This killed Ore gon’s last hope and Kienholtz booted the ball out of danger as the final whistle blew. cook ana t ornen star. Tyrer, Kienholtz, Coulter, and George Harter starred for Pullman, Canfield, Bailey, Parsons, Cook and Cornell did the best work for the var sity. Canfield broke through the line repeatedly and broke up W. S. C. plays before they were fairly started. Every man in the Oregon lineup played good hard football, and if that factor alone decided games, Oregon would have been a winner. (By Dutch Young.) Captain Joe Harter, of the Wash ington State College team, won the toss and chose to defend the west goal. At 2:45, Referee Varnell called the teams to the field, and a second later sounded his whistle, sending the elev ens into action. Oregon Rattled at First. B’-adshaw kicked off for Oregon, booting the ball 35 yards, the pig skin being returned seven yards. Two downs netted the northern Aggies five vards, two more giving them their yardage. Four yards were added on the first down, but the ball was fum bled on the next attempt. After no gain on the following effort, two passes were tried, but nothing was gained bv them. On the fourth down, a pass was successful, but a second failed. Seven yards were added on a b’Vk. t>>en four more. The Oregon team was rattled here, but Bradshaw stead ied and recovered a Pullman fumble. Pa’•sons made the first Oregon gain of 12 vaMs on an end run, then Walker pnnted for 15 yards. Coulter Scores for W. S. C. Pullman wrorked the forward pass for 15 vards, but could not buck the line in two attempts. A fake place Vick was good for 15, the advantage beine immediately turned into a touchdown by Coulter on a straight line buck. Foster kicked the goal. Score, W. S. C. 7; Oregon, 0. McClelland replaced Soden. Oregon recovered the kick off on Pullman’s 28 yard line. Walker was thrown back two yards, a fake kick netted one yard, but a forward pass gave the ball to Pullman on their own 33 yard line. Coulter kicked the ball over Walker’s head to Oregon’s one yard line. Cook, Parsons, and Briedwell made nine yards on three downs. Cook made eight, but was held on the second down. Parsons added six, and Cook came back for eight. Parsons, Cook and Briedwell again rotated for two, five and four yards respectively. The first quarter ended with the ball on Pullman’s 33 yard line. Score, 7 to 0 in Pullman’s favor. The second quarter opened with a 10 yard loss by Parsons. After a one yard effort by Cook, Oregon muffed a forward pass, Walker to Bradshaw. The ball went to Pullman on the 40 yard line. Coulter added seven, but Bailey broke through on the third down and the attempted forward pass went out of bounds, the ball going to Oregon on their own 43 yard line. Pass After Pass Fails. After Parsons went three, Cook was used four times in succession for 13 yards, but again Oregon could not work the forward pass successfully, the spheroid going to the Aggies. Gaddis worked himself twice for five yards, but Parsons got in front of a forward pass, giving the ball to Oregon in the center of the field. George Harter sustained a bad bruise in the knee, but remained in the scrimmage. After Cook and Briedwell made yardage, Oregon was penalized 15 yards for holding in the line. Walker punted 25 yards, Bradshaw downing Kienholtz in his tracks. The Pullman backs added 27 yards in quick succes sion. but lost for illegal holding. They came -back with a 14 yard gain, but on the next down, Parsons again intercepted a high pass from Gaddis. Oregon Takes a Brace. Oregon took a brace here, five plunges netting the team 17 yards. In an effort to check the advance, the Aggies were guilty of holding, Ore gon advancing five yards at their ex pence. Bailey, Parsons and Cook were again worked for 15 yards, but Walker’s men were set back 15 yards for holding. Bradshaw booted for 33 yards, the ball going to Pullman on their 25 yards line. Being held on their next two efforts, Kienholtz punted 28 yards, Walker making the best return of the day, squirming through a broken field for 20 yards. Briedwell lost one, then Pullman stopped a forward pass. Coulter bringing it back to the middle of the field. The half ended here, Score, W. S. C., 7; Oregon, 0. Chance to Scare Is Not Seized. Holden replaced Fariss at guard, but the Pullman line remained intact at the beginning of the second half. Oregon’s kickoff to Pullman was re turned eight yards. Bailey proved a grief to the Aggies to the extent of four yards. Walker returned Pull man’s punt five yards. At this point Oregon rallied, and as a result of a series of line bucks by Parsons, Cook, and Walker, the ball was sent to Pull man’s ten yard line. Here Walker gave promise of a score by advancing (Continued on last page.) Bill Hayward, Trainer, and Louis Pinkham, Coach, of Oregon’s hard fight ing Team. RALLY SHOWS PIP Bonfire and Enthusiastic Speeches 1’romise Loyal Support in W. S. C. Game. The big rally last night previous to the W. S. C. game today, was easily the best ever held at Oregon. Leav ing the Dormitory at 7 o’clock, the green and yellow bedecked rooters, led by Yell Leader Blackman and the new Boola Band, marched through the fra ternity district, picking up unanimous contingents as they advanced. The downtown section was than in vaded. At three principal street in tersections the four blocks long col umn wound up with a perfectly exe cuted bear-cat rag, to cheer again and again for Oregon and her gridiron heroes. Cointermarching to the University, Kincad field was a.iler.al at the same moment that the 107 6 bonfire was touched off by a volley of roman can dles. The whole field and grandstand, were instantly lighted up by the bril liantly blazing pile of oil soaked lum ber. Prominent followers of Varsity sports responded with pip-filled speeches to Yell Leader Backman’s call, and were cheered to the echo as they recalled past victories and an swered with an emphatic affirmative the question, “Gan Oregon Come Back?” Among those who spoke were George Hug, Dr. H. B. Leonard, Coach Lewis Pinkhnm, Captain Dean Walker, and Arthur Geary. Features of the rally were the “Senior Civils,” whose colts thirty eights punctured the atmosphere at frequent intervals, and the flashlight photograph of the rally on the field taken for the 1914 Oregana. SOPHOMORES GIVEN FIRST CLASS HOUR The first class hour of the year will be given by the Sophomore class on December 3.

With the three leading parties hav ing clubs working on the campus in their behalf, the coming straw vote has become the goal of the efforts of the school’s politicians. DOLAN AND O. A. C.

C. football team taak a day’s vacation from training and, accompanied by Coach Dolan, were present at the game, gathering pointers on the Oregon style of play for future reference in the proposed contest on November 23. Two bands and an assistant alumni rooting section, led by Bush Brown, rendered today’s cheering probably the best of any game of the season. Due to the rally of last night Blackman’s corps of vocal experts were in line form and in addition were well pre pared for the serpentine, which took place between halves. Bear-catting was the popular cadence during the parade on the field. A committee was appointed at the last German Club meeting to decide upon a play to be presented soon. The committee in charge. Amv Rothchil 1. chairman, Alfred Ski i. and Elizabeth Busch, have the play, “Gretchen von | Buchenou,” under consideration. EMERALD STRAW VOTE WILLSOUND STUDENT SENTIMENT ON ISSUES INITIATIVE PROPOSALS, N ATION AL, STATE, ANI) UNIVERSITY MEASURES ON BALLOT EVERY STUDENT IS ELIGIBLE TO VOTE T. It. Strength Wanes on Campus— Results of Vote Will Appear in Thursday’s Edition. Matters of importance to the na tion, state, city, and University, will be voted on by the students of the University next Wednesday, when the Emerald straw vote is held in Villard Hall. Everybody May Vote. This vote will correspond to that taken last year, but will be on a larger scale, and upon questions em bracing a wider scope. Every stu dent and member of the Faculty is eligible to vote, and each one is ex pected to cast his or her ballot upon each question, as the vote is held for the purpose of ascertaining the stand of the University upon these import ant questions. On the ballot will be the Presi dential candidates, the candidates for senator from Oregon, the thirty-eight initiative bills that will go before the voters of Oregon at the coming elec tion, the local option question that has recently been called up in Eugene, and the question of making the pur chase of the season ticket compulsory upon entrance to the University. There was considerable interest shown in the straw vote of last year; out of a possible six hundred and seventy, four hundred and eighty votes were cast. The only question in common between the vote of last year and the coming vote, is the president ial preftsenee. At that time Theodore Roosevelt led with 109, vvith Taft as second with 110, and Wilson a close third with 109. But the straw vote held last Thursday night at the Zeta Phi house indicates that Roosevelt and Taft have suffererd reverses in favor of Wilson. The leader of Democracy came in an easy first with 14 votes, with our near-martyr ex-President and Taft dividing the remaining hon o’s between them in the proportion of four to nothing, in favor of Roose velt. It is the opinion of the Faculty and ha ling students that this straw vote is an honest expression of the stand "f the University as a whole upon the questions considered; but that it can hardly be relied upon to sound •he sentiment of the state, because of the comparatively small number in University, and the fact that the University students are better in formed upon the issues to be voted on average voter. There are only about 50 per cent of the stu hmts of the University of voting age, b”t (hat would hardlv make any dif '•n- onf.p in the general decision of the vote. Emerald Will Publish.
