No. 16 IDAHO DEFEATS CONFERENCE GAMES GIVI LINE ON STRENGTH OF TEAMS — OREGON FIVE NOT YET RICKED TUESDAY’S GAME FASTEF Walker Again Stars—Brooks, In jured in Latter Part of Contest, Replaced by Fee. Though met with a string of de feats, Idaho’s trip into Oregon gives the first line on the comparative strength of the two teams. This com parative “dope,” though it has a mosl inconsistant feminine-like uncertainty is always due early in the season Idaho was outplayed by Oregon twice once 31 to 6, and again 25 to 15. O A. C. last night defeated them 23 tc 13; and Pullman, before Idaho came to Eugene, trimmed the Gem Staters by but a very narrow margin. The game ended a tie, at 16 to 16, but ir playing it out, Washington State slipped over a couple. This, for what it may be worth, in dicates Oregon stronger than Wash ington State and a little better thar on a standoff with the Oregon Col lege. Oregon, however, handicappec by the absence of its captain, openec the season with but a week’s prac tice. Hayward Undecided. Many believe that the opening games have been the selecting of th( first team. Hayward denies this. “P is not safe even to make a guess ai who the first team men will be at this time. I will not select my team unti we go to Washington in February Then I will take along seven players There are still some good men wh< have not played yet. I am waiting for the completing of that fraternity series. I may find some men there.’ (Continued on last page.)

No two of these to be chosen from the same legislative district, 3. Committees to meet according to a schedule and attendance com pulsory. 4. Committee meetings to be open to all members of the Legislature and to the accredited members of the press. All bills to be considered in order that they are received. 5.
