Should they win again, the trophy will be come a permanent fixture of their mantel. This season their team will be playing without Roberts, Cobb and McAllen, the first being chosen as all fraternity forward last year. Still and Boylen are the old men on the team. There are several fraternities who are of the belief that the trophy should be passed on from year to year. Among these who appear to be the most capable of bringing about the desired succession and wresting the honors from the Kappa Sigma fra ternity are Sigma Chi, Alpha Tau Omega, Phi Gamma Delta, and Sigma Nu fraternities. Ihe Sigma Chi fraternity qualified for the semi-finals last year and they should make a bid for the first honors again this year with such stars as Briedwell, Vosper and Watson in their midst. The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity is weakened by the absence of Viereck, Huggins, and McDaniels, but with the two Motschenbachers in the game and a number of Freshmen with prep school records to draw from, they should be able to give a good account of themselves. The Phi Gamma Delta fraternity is minus their star forward Tom Word. However, with Gould. Fisher, and Geoige, as a nucleus, they should be able to develop a fast team. The Sigma Nu team has been prac ticing for some time under the direc tion of Don Rader. Among their (Continued on last page.)

The tour of Australia and New Zea land by the team representing the Spaulding Athletic Company of New York, which included Hawkins and McClure, two Oregon men, has been postponed until June. The American athletes were to sail in the middle of December, but be cause of the impossibility of taking an evenly balanced team the trip was de layed. Chief difficulties lay with the inability to find a hurdler who could defeat the Australian stars. Hawkins was slated to run these events for the Americans, but his studies at the Law School in Portland would not permit his leaving. Twenty-three special trains carried 18.000 spectators from New York to Princeton for the recent Yale-Prince ton football game.

PORTLAND THEATRES TURN DOWN GLEE CLUB Dates All Full. Says Manager Geary —Lincoln High Auditorium Is Considered. Graduate Manager Arthur Geary has encountered considerable difficulty in arranging a date for the Univer sity Glee Club in Portland. He is unable to engage a date at the Heilig; the management kept postponing an agreement and finally told him that ail dates available tor tne club were filled. The management of the Bun galow was reticent of allowing the •lt:b a date on account of such ar rangement breaking into their regular! performance; and when the Orpheum took over the Bungalow Theatre, after the collapse of the Marquam build ing, all prospects of an appearance there faded. Manager Geary said: “The place of the performance now lies between the Star Theatre and the Lincoln High School Auditorium. The students here from Lincoln High are good, loyal boosters, who will be home during the holidays. I think we could get a good crowd. By reducing the prices to seventy-five and fifty cents, the pro ceeds would probably be as good as at any of the theatres. The auditorium of Lincoln has a capacity of two ’hou^and or more.” GALE SEAMAN TO ADDRESS Y. M. C. A.

It LEHR, RUSSIAN PURIST BILLED FOR CONCERT IN VILLARO MU PHI EPSILON INTRODUCES NOTED PERFORMER FREE TO COLLECE FOLK PRESS AGENTS ENTHUSE OVER FOREIGNER Unusual Opportunity to Hear Pianist of International Reputation Tomorrow. Miss Tina Lerner, Russian pianist, appears in concert at Villard Hall Wednesday evening, at 8:15„ The Portland Musical Association has made this concert a present to Mu Phi Epsilon, and the sorority is making it a complimentary concert to all the students of the University and the town people. The patronesses will be Mrs. P. L. Campbell, Mrs. A. C. Dixon, Mis. M. H. Douglass, and Miss G. W. Lewis. Through the University School of Music, the students in Eugene have, more or less frequently, had the op portunity to hear musicians of na tional reputation. But to be able to hear Miss Lerner, without cost, is, in deed, unusual. The press agents speak well of this pianist, saying: “Judging from the impression which Miss Tina Lerner made where ever she has appeared in this country, there seems to be no question as to the complete agreement with the ver dict which Europe passed on the merits of the young pianist. The brilliant young musician has shown herself quite the equal of any woman artist before the public. Considera tions of youth, sex and environment aside, Miss Lerner’s record has shown that she is amply able to hold her own in competition with the giants of the keyboard.’’ “It did not take long,” said the Baltimore Sun, “for Miss Lerner to make a striking impression by her in nate grace, refinement and unaffected simplicity of manner. She is an ar tist in every sense of the word—full of temperament, deeply imbued with the keen sense of music so character istically a feature of the people of her Russian father land.” FOOTBALL SEASON A FINANCIAL SUCCESS Geary Reports, Halance of to he Turned Into Student Body Treasury.

VARNELL GIVES BAILEY AND PARSONS PLAGES ON ALL STAR ELEVEN OBESOVS BABY TACKLE LISTED AS EASILY BEST IN CONFERENCE COOK AND CORNELL SECOND CHOICE 1!U2 Dope Can Badly Dented—Race for Captaincy Between Bradshaw and Kenton. The placing of two men on Var nell’s official all-North west team, the tying with Washington State College for third place in the conference, and u fiscal balance of between two and three hundred dollars are the results of Oregon’s 1912 football season just closed. Johnny Parsons and Ed. Bailey were giver, half back and tackle posi tions on the Spaulding team because the former "put up the most brilliant offensive game yet seen in the North west, not excepting Borleske’s great ■ami k of years ago, “and the later, for the reason that "with two hundred and twenty-five pounds of solid bone and muscle, unusual speed, and abil ity to think quickly, made him the best tackle in the conference.” Both the Oregonian and the Journal gave Kenton a guard position, as he “was far and away the best forward passer in the conference and a great punter.” Cook is heralded as a second to Niles of Whitman in fullback position, be cause of his bulk and speed as a line plunger. Right behind Quarterback 't oung of Washington is Anson Cor nell, for "he excells any runner we have had in the Northwest recently.” 'three men will be lost by graduation, Kariss from guard, Bailey from tackle, and Captain Walker from the backfield, but several good men have already spoken for their places. Dope Can Marred. Kor years the Northwest “dope can” has not been so battered as it has this year. Idaho walloped W. S. C. !W. S. C. defeated Oregon 7-0, yet Oregon won from Idaho 3-0. Again, Whitman smothered Oregon 2-0, the Oregon Aggies beat Whitman 20-3, but Oregon turned the tables on O. A. (’. by a score of 3-0. The Whit man-Idaho game, won by the later 13-0, was the last dent in the "can.” Through all the season, Washington calmly pursued it’s even tenor and brought home the fifth con secutive championship. Hall and Caufield Leave Race. Kor the captaincy of the 1913 team four men are eligible, but Caufield and Hall leave the race to Kenton and Bradshaw, believing them better fitted for the position. The election will take place sometime in the near fu ture. SHOCKLEY IS HIED Miss Elsie Simmons, of Parkdale, Ore K«n, is 'HianksKiving Bride of Cyni Instructor. Edgar W.
