After the Multnomah meet on Kin
caid field next Saturday, “dopsters”
will find themselves in an easier posi
tion to figure out Oregon’s chances in
the Northwest Conference Meet at
Walla Walla in May.
Multnomah Manager Optimistic.
Manager Schmitt, of the M. A. A.
C., seems optimistic as to the out
come of the meet. “I expect to take
twelve men with me to Eugene Satur
day,” he said. “I expect first places
in the 100 yard dash, high and low
hurdles, broad jump, discus throw,
and the pole vault.” Multnomah stock
rose several points last week when
George Philbrook, the great all
around Olympic athlete, and former
football and track star at Whitman
and Notre Dame, appeared under the
Multnomah colors. He is a big 205
pound athlete who holds such records
as 46 feet 6 inches in the shot put,
discus, 142 feet; high jump, 6 feet 1.
W. A. A. C. Given Six Firsts.
Conceding Multnomah first place in
the six events, “Dope” has it that
we should draw strongly for second
and third in the discus, a possible sec
ond in the high jump and third in the
The 440 with such men as Windna
gle, Boylen, and Barber entered, the
880 under the supervision of Wind
nagle and McClure, and the mile and
two mile instrusted to McClure, Hug
gins, and Pack, seem to place Oregon
ahead for these events. But the pole
vault belongs to Bellah, of the Club,
who has a record of over 12 feet 6
inches, and the high and low hurdles
appear very much like the property of
Hawkins and Bibee. The 100 yard and
220 yard dashes are not so certain.
At Columbia, Kay and Kiser both
edged out ahead of the Columbia’s en
tries in the 220, but the 100 was not
run at that time and this result is
hard to predict.
Parsons Should Take Broad Jump.
Johnny Parsons lost out in the
broad jump because of unfamiliarity
with the take off, but Saturday he
should press Bellah and Hawkins
close for first place. Neill and Hei
denreich, the javelin and discus twins,
feel capable of figuring in these two
events against Philbrook and Bellah.

“Bill” Hayward and his track squad
were in Portland Saturday, April 13,
and for the fifth consecutive time
walked away with the purple banner
at the annual Columbia University in
door track and field meet, scoring 34
points. O. A. C. landed in second
place with 24 points, while the Mult

honors, by scoring 17 points.
Oregon’s Victory a Surprise.
Oregon’s decisive victory came
somewhat as a surprise, as the dope
sters had predicted a close meet, with
Multnomah a slight favorite. The ab
sence of Baker, the Aggies’ star
sprinter, and the fact that Philbrook,
Bellah and Johns did not compete for
the Winged M, aided Oregon materi

TWENTY-SIX MILES IFTER ONE FISH
Ur. Gilbert Shows Perseverance in

A vacation may be a vacation, but
not when one has to walk twenty-six
miles for one measly fish, especially
when fishing is your favorite pastime
for an idle week.
But this happened to Doctor James

Economics, and graduate of the Uni
versity of Oregon, last week while

FRIENDS OF UNIVERSITY
ORGANIZE TO ASSIST
OPPOSITION TO REFERENDUM
FROM MANY SOURCES
Oregon Women Active in Fight
Against Threatened Attempt to
Block University Progress.
(By Harold Young.)
Opposition to the threatened refer
endum movement against the Univer
sity appropriations has assumed defi
nite form during the past two weeks,
through the creation of bodies of
workers organized to combat the sen
timent as it appears and, through the
intention expressed by many of the
papers of the state to oppose the
movement to refer the money grant
or to consolidate the two institutions,
O. A. C. and the University.
Growing out of the two meetings
held at the Multnomah Hotel in Port
land, called by the State Federation of
Women’s Clubs, there cnme the Ore
gon Citizen’s Educational League. Of
this organization, Eugene Brookins is
president, and associated with him are
Dr. J. R. Wilson, Alten Eaton, B. F.
Irvine, of the Journal, II. B. Miller,
Fletcher Linn, Mrs. S. Hirsch, Austin
Buxton, of the State Grange, H. W.
Stone, of the Portland Y. M. C. A.,
and A. H. Harris, of the Portland La
Following this organization, Col. E.
Hofer, President of the State Press
Association, and others, formed the
People’s Higher Educational League,
at a meeting Saturday, April 19, in
the Portland Chamber of Commerce.
Present at this time was a delegation
from the other body, which met a
special committee from the People’s
League. Through these committees,
the two organizations agreed to co
operate with one another, but to keep
the associations separate and distinct.
The executive committee of the Peo
ple’s League is composed of Colonel
Hofer, C. C. Chapman, Dr. Marie Equi,
of Portland, Judge T. J. Geisler, H. L
Vorst, of the Society of Engineers,
of Portland, J. E. Werlein, of Portland,
and others. This committee was to
have met yesterday to appoint sub
committees and start the factual iam
paign for the University0of the State,
.but on»account°of the death of Colo
nel Hofer’s brother in Salem, this
I meeting was postponed one week.

was adopted, a governing board ap

Playing with a fighting spirit that

a consistency that surpassed the
hopes of its most sanguine support

it figured that Oregon had but a slim
chance of barely breaking even, bas

effect that lack of practice had had
on the team, rather than any inher

Captain Chandler and his boy-friends
completely upset the deductions of
the wise ones. They hit, ran the
bases and fielded like fiends, and the
pitchers dished out an article of hurl

HOW IIM HAPPENED
Players in Good Physical Condition;
Adapt in Learning quickly—but
Series Not Won Yet.
(By Fred C. Ayer.)
I attribute the really phenomenal
success of the team on their northern
trip to a combination of factors. Des
pite the lack of satisfactory outdoor
practice, the team was in first class
physical condition by virtue of previ
ous gymnastic or athletic work, and
by making the very most of the time
that we had. The team is in fact re
markable exceptional in speed and
physical ability for a college team.
“All the coaching and practice
moreover was centered on the rapidly
approaching series. Only such team
plays and signal combinations were
attempted as could be mastered thor
oughly for this trip. \Ve were fortu
nate in having a class of pUiyers who
could learn these in about one half -
the time required by most teams.
Practically =all of the men have goad
baseball “sense,” as well as native
ability, and coaching has been simply
a matter of fitting a “system” to the
“We have never been worried about
the ultimate fielding of the team. .^11
that is needed is ordinary practice
and time to learn the teamwork of the
more comprehensive defensive plays.
“So far, outside of the battery de
partment which I have always felt
would be strong, the attention has
been chiefly given to the offense, a
vital part of the game in which the
team work is not even suspected by
