YVE YVIN AGAIN
Again Old Oregon has made good
with a vengeance. The baseball team ,
is back from its northern trip "with i
a string of victories won against!
heavy odds. A bunch of recruits who
had no chance to practice on account j
of rainy weather tackled Washington j
State and got away with the long end
of two scores. Going over to the IJni- |
versity of Washington, they cleaned
up that much touted “invincible” t
team, against whom all the dope said j
we had no chance.
It may be luck again, but it is the
kind that always attends the team
with the Oregon Spirit, The men
simply got in and worked in spite of,
difficulties, and with the coach and
captain giving the best they had in
them, something was sure to happen.
And it did.

Notable among other organizations
that have gone on record as opposing
the movement, is the Willamette Val
ley Press Association, that met in
Albany last Saturday, which adopted
resolutions condemning the etfort to
invoke the referendum. This evidence
of support on the part of the editors
of the valley was offered by Elbert
Bede, of the Cottage Grove Sentinel,
published in the suit of previous anti
Dniversity feeling. 'Phis action sup
ports the public declaration by the
citizens of that city recently, which
was to the same eP«ct. Both the
Portland Chamber of Commerce and
the Commercial Club have gone on
record as opposing the effort to crip

papers, including the Portland Ore
gonian and the Portland .lournal, have
taken editorial stands against the

Five Members of State Mining Board
Spend Day on Campus of
Five members of the State Mining
Commission, accompanied by Presi
dent Kerr of the Oregon Agricultural
College and President Campbell of the
University of Oregon, were in Eugene
today on an inspection trip. Presi
dents Campbell and Kerr are both ex
officio members of the commission.
After eating lunch at the dormitory,
the committee, consisting of Trmil, of
Ontaiio; 1 .auric, of Portland: Reddy,
of Medford; Fellows, of Granite; and
M«! n. of Portland, spent the after
noon on the University campus.
The visit of the commission is in
preparation to expend the $ 10,000 re
cently granted by the state legislature
for a survey of the mineral resources
of the state. It is very probable that
members of the Oregon faculty in the
departments of geology and engineer
ing will be selected to assist in the
w ok this summer.
The commission left last evening
for Corvallis, whe'e they will visit the
\giiculturai College, with the same
purpose in view. I
FRATERNITY HOUSE IS
SCENE OF FIRE SCARE
Beta Theta Pi Home Threatened by
Blaze Which Burned Hole
Fire, discovered last Sunday night
about 12:20, on the roof of the west
eave of the Beta Theta Pi house,
threatened for a short time to be
come a dangerous blaze, and owing
to its inaccessible place, was extin
guished with difficulty. Several pieces
of clothing put on the roof to dry,
and a hole in the shingles two or
three feet in diameter, were burned.
Most of the members of the fra
ternity, who had just returned from
their vacation, had retired, when
someone passing the house noticed the
blaze and smoke and immediately
spread the alarm. Don Rice was the
first to respond, but seeing the dif
ficulty of reaching the fire, called sev
eral of the men, and then phoned for
the fire department. With the usual
array of water buckets, towels, rugs
and brooms, the rapidly spreading
blaze was extinguished, but not be
fore the department had arrived.
It is not known ho 'he fire started,
but the most probable explanations
offered are those of sparks from a
chimney or rats eating matches in
the pockets of the clothing that was
The excitement provided the custo
mary number of funny incidents. Earl
Fortmiller offered a teacupful of wa
ter brought up from the ground floor
as his contribution to the fire fighting
apparatus. Herman Oberteuffer slept
during the entire racket, although his
room was filled with smoke, and men
rushed to and fro through his room.
The Spring Training Will be Under
Direction of Captain Bob
Spring football training for tilt
season of 1913 will commence tomor
row afternoon at 4 o’clock, on Kincaid
Field, under the personal direction ef
Captain Bob Bradshaw. The 1315
captain issued the call for candidates
yesterday, instructing them to get
their suits and moleskins from Man

Bunting, running in punts, falling
on the ball and passing, will be the
modus operandi for the next few
weeks, or as long as the men evince
a desire to get out, and probably for
a little while even after that, accord
ing to Captain Bradshaw. This pre
liminary practice will be the first un
dertaken at the University, but work
along this same line has been in prog
ress at 0. A. C. and at the University
of Washington for several weeks past.
Heal serious practice has been the
manner of things at Camp “Doc”
Stewart, while Dobio has had his
spring squad at work on track, prob
ably trying to develop some speed.
Contrary to previous reports, Coach
Hugo Bezdek will not be on hand un
til early next September, having a
contract to coach a summer f hau
