OREGON VOL. XV. EUGENE, OREGON, THURSDAY EMERALD OCT. 2, 1913 NO. V. NEW STUNTS TO AID MIX THIRD INTER-CLASS AFFAIB TO HAVE SEVEN MAIN EVENTS CAP RUSH IS BIG FEATURE Pushball Contest to Be Held Ii Ball Arrives in Time. Big Dance Promised for Saturday Evening. 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 stand 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 Grout. 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 (Continued on page four) PAJAMA PARADE WILL AWAKE DORMANT “PEP" 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. 3 AMATEUR SLEUTHS FIND STOLEN GOODS Loyal Boys Locate Baseball Supplies in Nearby Oemetery 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. THE ENGINEERS WILL MEET 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 OREGON FRESHMEN TIGHT 0. A. C. TO FINISH WITH A MINUTE AND A HALF TO PLAY AND FORTY YARDS TO GO, TWO FORWARD PASSES FROM BIGBEE TO HEN DRICKS TIE SCORE (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 game. 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 sistency. 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 well. There were no stars but the whole team played a hard gritty game. Beckett was elected captain after the game. The lineup was as rouowB: O. A. C. Oregon. Alward, Moist, Ride half .L. E. R. .Ross, Wieoi. Graham.L. T. R.Tuerck Beckett, Pechim..L. G. R..S. Pellman Blackwell .G. Ensley McCord, Beckett R. G.

Sophomores Use In 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. Credit for the Invention is claimed by Eli Whitney Dyott, Thomas Edison Holbrook and Wilbur Wright Lling ham.

The time for the alumni game is drawing near and speculation' is rife as to the outlook. Can the team play well enough to keep the alumni from running away with the ball in the first few minutes of play and pil ing up a score which will put them safe despite the efforts that may be made to overcome a lead later In the game? The alumni are going to have a great bunch of men heye and they are all seasoned veterans. They may he a little out of condition, but they will be able to move pretty fast for a few minutes. Then, too, the team has been get ting bumped around until the men are sore and stiff. They are not yet In the best of condition. Fenton Is kicking the ball well Out not ns well as Clark will be able to boot it If he has had any, practice at all. That will put the Varsity at a disadvantage if they play a kicking game. A kicking game will wear out the alumni but they will also get close enough to the goal for Moullen to try some of his famouB place kicks. After the team gets going they ought to make things pretty hot for the alumni as they are In better con dition and have a greater series of plays. The tentative lineup Is as follows' Alunvnl. Jamison, HlckBon, Flser and Mitch cell, ends; Bailey, Arnsplger, Pink ham and Earle, tackles; Moullen and Farlss, guards; Hug, center; Kuy kendall, Latourette and Cobb, quar ters; Taylor and Dud Cla.ke, halves; Walker, fullback. Oregon. Bradshaw, Heusner, Wlest and Bryant, ends; Holden and Fenton, tackles; Hall and Grout, guards; Caufleld, center; Cornell and Bigbee, quarters; Parsons, Jones, Malarkey and Beckett, halves; Cook and Hunt ington, fullbacks. Besides these there are several freshmen and other men who will probably be put Into the game for uwnlle to get a line on their play. WILL HOLD A RECEPTION Alumni to Have Reunion Following Saturday's Game.
