kind in the State of Oregon.
The officers elected were Eleanor

Prominent Women Speak.
Miss Mae Norton, as president of
the Council, presided. She called upon
Mrs. M. H. Parsons, Mrs. Eric W. Al

explanations of the work, nature and 1
character of organizations of similar
leagues at Michigan and Wisconsin.
These were fully explained. Mrs. Par- '
sons and Mrs. Allen confined their re
marks to the moral and democratic in
fluences that such organizations have,
and declared that they tend to coun
teract the narrowing influence that
college life seems to have upon the 1
women when their activities are re
stricted to a few. The operation of 1
the league at Michigan, Miss Thomp

To Miss Florence Cleveland, ’13, 1

(By J. Ward Arney.)
Shakespeare never staged a better
Comedy of Errors than did the Dough
nuts when they presented to Univer
sity fandom the Dorm-Kappa Sig skit.
From curtain to curtain it was a
wierd mixture of boneheads, boots,
and freak plays. After seven innings
of baseball that would bring tears to
the eyes of a wooden Indian, Umpire
Shockley called time, with the score
even up at 7-7.
Ken Reed was the whole Dorm
team, stricking out 13 Balognies and
nailing two of his ream’s six hits.
Anson Cornell was on the rubber for
the Kappas and aside from a strong
tendency to poke the ball in some
one’s ribs, threw a nice game, deserv
ing to win with proper support in
view of the Dorm’s slips. The game
will be played to a finish in the near

TURE IN STONEWALL

Chandler, IVlctschenbacher, and L.
Bigbee Hit Drake for
(By J. Ward Arney.)
Zip! Boom! Bang! Everybody was
doing it! They all picked out their
favorite pet shilalah, took a big
healthy crack ait the ball and the
scorer marked down an assist and an
out. From start to finish the game
was full of hard hitting, very little
of it being of the safe vdriety, and
fast snappy fielding, and although it
was the Varsity’s game all the way,
yet it never bordered on the lop-sided,
as the final score of 3-0 shows.
Neither Drake nor Bigbee, the rival
slabsters, disposed of a record num
ber via the strikeout route, but both
were hard to hit in the pinches. Drake
allowing the wearers o’ the green four
bingles, while Bigbee yielded but
three to the swings of the Salemites.
Drake, however, was generous with
his issuance of free transportation,
passing five men, two of these figur
ing in the scoring.
l«ood Yielding Exhibited.
Both teams put up wonderful field
ing exhibitions, nearly every out be
ing gained by corraling a hard driven
ground or fly ball. The speed ait

stellar stop in the eight frame fur

Oregon scored in the first inning
when, after Cornell had succumbed to
the wiles of three twists, Mount
worked Drake for a walk, annexed
second a la Jimmy Valentine, and
counted on Chandler's drive into
right. The captain then emulated
“Beany’s” example by stealing second,
but died there, Fenton and “Buck”
In the second inning, Drake stuck
a fast one in Anunsen’s ribs, Dutch
going to first. Billings forced him aft

a moment later on a single by Mot

husky backstop following him in on
