Pushball Contest to Be Held Ii
Ball Arrives in Time. Big
Dance Promised for Saturday
With the committees of 'both
classes working hard and with prom
ises of several new features, the third
annual Freshman-Sophomore Mix,
scheduled for Saturday afternoon,
bids fair to be the most successful
ever held on Kincaid Field.
The Junior committee, headed by
Jessup Strang, have inaugurated
some distinctly original stunts. An
interesting feature, copied somewhat
after the cane rushes of the Eastern
colleges, will be a "green cap rush.”
A large green canvas cap, three feet
in diameter, is now being made at a
local harness shop. It will be placed
in the center of the field and at a
given signal, both classes will make
a rush toward it. At the end of ten
minutes, the class having the most
hands on the “lid” will be awarded
the event.
Sand Bag Contest.
A sand bag contest with fifty men
on each side will also be staged.
Twenty-five bags, weighing fifty
pounds each, will be piled in a heap,
midway between the goals. Both
sides will rush toward the center at
the same time, the class succeeding
in placing the largest number of
bags across their opponents’ line,
winning the event.
Following the custom of former
years, a tug-of-war wiil take place
across the “frog” pond at the west
ern end of the Varsity campus. This
promises to be a close event as both
classes have some heavyweights.
Another new feature will be a
miniature tie-up, similar to that
staged at the University of Washing
ton each year.
Although the committee is not cer
tain, it is believed that there will
also be a push ball contest. There
has been much difficulty in securing
a ball for the contest, but late ad
vices received by Manager Walker
from the Oval Club of Seattle, are to
the effect that he can get the ball
used by the city club. Should the
ball arrive here in time for the mix,
this event will be added to the pro
gram of the day.
Freshmen Enter First.
The mix will start promptly at
1:30. The Freshmen will enter the
field first and give their yells. After
performing their stunt, the wearers
of the green will retire to the right
side of the grandstand facing the
field. The Sophomores will then
make their appearance. They will
occupy the left section of the grand
According to Chairman Jessup
Strang, no one except the duly au
thorized officials will be allowed on
the field while the mix is in pro
gress. This will prevent the confu
sion, so noticeable in former mixes.
The following Seniors have been ap
pointed to act as marshals: Elmer
Hall, Maurice Terpening, Harold
"Dutch” Young, Don Rice and Allie
Hayward Grand Master.
Trainer Bill Hayward will be
grand master of the ceremonies and
Willard Shaver will act as official
announcer. The judges of the stunts,
decoration, appearance and yells will
be: Doctor Leonard, Vernon Mot
schenbacher and Dean Walker. Ed

First Rally of Year Oomes To
night With “Dutch”
as Leader
Pajamas, of the striped speak-for
themselves variety, will be in form
at the first football rally of the year
to be held tonight. The purpose of
the rally is to awaken some of the
dormant “pep,” bewailed of by Coach
Bezdek et al, so that plenty of it will
be on tap for the Varsity-Alumni con
test Saturday.
It is announced that a departure
will be made in tonight's pajama dis
play. Instead of marching down
town and giving yells, as has hereto
fore been the usual custom, the ef
forts of the paraders will be solely
directed toward making a foray on
the sorority house district. This de
parture is due to the fact that four
contests are to be played on the local
gridiron wihin the next few weeks
and it is thought best to reserve the
downtown parade for one of the com
ing rallies.
The parade will toe formed on the
campus near the Dormitory. From
there a march will be niade to the
fraternity houses, picking up re
cruits. It will then proceed to the
sorority houses, where the marchers
will go through the serpentine
“stunt.” After the rounds of the
different sororities have been made
the line will march back to the cam
pus, where short speeches will he
made by several University lightB.
Coach Bezdek, Captain Bradshaw and
Graduate Manager Walkbr are
scheduled for speeches on Oregon’s
prospects of carrying away the
Northwest championship this year*
The rally tonight will mark the
initial debut of “Dutch” Young as
Varsity yell leader, who tip particular
ly desirous that there toe a big turn
out tonight. All men, especially the
Freshmen, are expected fto be at the
Dormitory promptly at* 7:30.
Loyal Boys Locate Baseball
Supplies in Nearby
It was Oregon spirit that saved the
game for us at O. A. C. yesterday, and
it was Oregon spirit that saved th1' base
ball supplies which were stolen from the
gymnasium, just before college opened.
Three young sons of janitors on the
University campus were the means of
recovering .be lost articles. Indignant
at the insult offered by thieves entering
a University building, these three young
followers of Sherlock Holmes put their
heads together and unearthed the stolen
goods, which three of their schoolmates
had taken and hidden under a tree in
the cemetery. The lads loyal to Old Ore
gon, informed Dean Walker of their dis
covery. The thieves were apprehended
and the goods recovered.
Election of Officers nnd Plans for
Year to Be Decided.
A meeting of the Engineering club
has been called for Wednesday night,
October 8, the place to be announced
later. There will be the annual elec
tion of officers, and discussion of
the plans for the coming year. All
students in engineering courses are
eligible for membership, except
freshmen, who may. however attend
the meetings.
C. R. Reid of the Engineering depart
ment is assisting Professor Stafford at
the University exhibit at Salem.
The gates of Kincaid field are closed tc
all mere spectators. Secret practice wai
inaugurated night before last
(By Raeman T. Fleming)
A forward pass from Bigbee to
Hendricks turned the tide. With but
a minute and a half to play and the
ball forty yards from a touchdown
things looked bad for the University
freshmen yesterday at Corvallis. Big
bee was waiting for an opportune
time and it would be all over. He
made one pass of about twenty yards
to Hendricks who had but one man
to get by for a touchdown and al
though “Tubby” made a good try for
it he was no match for the speedy
quarter of the O. A. C. aggregation
who nailed him after he had run
about three yards. The chance came
to him again in a short time and this
time the pass was long and sure. It
sailed out and over the goal line
with no one there to get it. Sudden
ly from out of the surrounding land
scape came Hendricks. The ball
merely touched the ends of his fin
gers but in some way he fastened his
fingernails into it and made the
touchdown. The spectators became
so demonstrative that it was neces
sary to drive them off in order that
Hendricks might live to play another
The score now stood seven to six
in favor of O. A. C. To kick the goal
would mean a tie, but thts was no
easy thing to do as the ball had been
put over the line about five yards ?o
the right of the goal. Some wanted
to kick the ball out and let one of
the men heel it and thus insure an
easier goal to kick; thiB was dis
couraged, however, and Huntington
was detailed to tie the score. The
excitement was so intense that every
one was hitting his neighbor on the
head and shouting to Huntington to
save the day. The ball had to go in
a space of about five feet so great
was the angle. Huntington took his
time and by a well directed kick sent
the ball sailing high over the bar,
tying the score.
In the first half the University
freshmen kept on the defense all of
the time. Every time they received
the ball on a kick they immediately
punted. Beckett’s punting was one
of the features of the game. Not
once did he foozle one, but took his
time and booted the ball out for a
good thirty-five yard average. The
O. A. C. team played a fierce line
plunging game, tearing great holes
in the University line for yardage.
Pour times in the first half they
made first down on line plunges.
Lutz, the former Pomona star, gain
ed ground for them consistently. He
also kicked well. Blackwell who, for
four years has been a star on Will
amette university football teams,
was also a big asset in tearing the
holes for the O. A. C. line bucks.
Abraham, the former Albany High
star, played a ground gaining game
at left half. The first quarter end
ed with the ball on Oregon’s thirty
yard line.
In the second quarter the O. A. C.
team put the ball up within four
yards of the University goal line and
after three downs were able to put
it over. From then on they played
a defensive game and it became a
punting duel between Lutz and Beck
ett with the honors about even.
The third quarter was straight
football with the advantage a little
with the University freshmen. They
reecived a talk from Coach Bezdek
that had its effect and they showed
more fight than in the previous half.
They literally played the O. A. C.
men off of their feet and played an
offensive game entirely. They buck
ed the O. A. C. line for yardage,
Beckett and Malarky carrying the
ball for short runs with great con
In the last quarter the Oregon
men fought desperately. Malarky
would not be stopped. He tore
through for runs of better than five
yards several times. When It came
to the defense in this quarter Beck
ett, Malarky and Wiest showed up
There were no stars but the whole
team played a hard gritty game.

genuity to Keep Fresh
men Amused
A new instrument of torture for
the chastisement of freshmen has
been devised by some sophomore
geniuses at the Kappa Sigma house.
The diabolical machine is patterned
after the ancient ducking-stool with
w hich the scolds were punished in
New England colonial days. It con
sists of a long beam swinging on a
pivot, on one end of which is a chair
The modus operand! is simple.
The felonious frosh is seated in the
chair, with his tormentors on the
other end of the beam. He is then
hosited over the mill-race and slowly
lowered beneath the surface.
The new method was tried out re
cently on “Tubby” Hendricks and
John Elliott, two Kappa Sig neophy
tes from Salem, with gratifying suc
cess. It is declared to be in every
way superior to the old-fashioned
and buuglesome mill-racing, in which
the executioners usually went into
the water along with the victim.
