STRUGGLE HARD FOUGHT,
BUT NOT EXPENSIVE,
PROPHESIES CLOSE BALLOTING
John C. Veatch Optimistic as to
Outcome Because of Decided
Stand Taken by Oregon Press
During the Campaign.
(By C. V. Dyment)
Seventy-two hours from tonp' t
will end the struggle carried into
every corner of Oregon by friends jf
the University to have the two Uni
versity building appropriations up
held at the special referendum elec
tion of November 4. It has been a
hard fight; it has not been an ex
pensive one. Campaign funds were
small; what has been done has been
mostly a tribute of love.
Few votes will be made or un
made between now and Tuesday and
a majority of those interested are
settling down to await the result.
What that result will be is about the
sole topic on the campus, among fac
ulty and students alike. Some work
will of course be done tomorrow and
Monday, that is letters will be writ
ten Sunday by way of reminder, and
reaching their destinations just be
fore election, should do considerable
good. Those in charge of the cam
paign, in both Portland and Eugene,
are urging that as many as possible
of such letters be written; they may
actually turn the election.
liesult Still Uncertain.
That a few letters, written in the
closing hours of a campaign, may
mean victory instead of defeat at
tests how close the campaign com
mittees fear the result will be.
Rarely has an election been so close
with the result so uncertain. If the
University is defeated, it is expected
to be by only a small margin; if it
wins, there is a chance it may win
overwhelmingly, for people are said
to be getting really tired of persecu
tion of a higher educational institu
tion and of abuse of the referendum
for furtherance of personal ends.
Since the days of the initiative and
referendum campaign in Oregon, few
causes have received so much pub
licity as that of the University dur
ing the past six weeks. Pieced end
on end, the stories regarding the ap
propriations and the comment on the
issue would extend across the cam
pus. This amazing amount of pub
licity has been 99 per cent favorable
to the University. “If the appropria
tions are not upheld I shall lose my
faith in the power of the press,”
said John C. Veatch, secretary of the
Oregon Citizens’ Educational league,
who was at the University yesterday.
Other features of the favorable
side of the campaign have been;
Speeches at hundreds of small’
gatherings throughout the state by
Portland speakers, alumni of the dif
ferent localities and other persons
favorable to the University,
cards distributed by the Eugene
Daily meetings of the Eugene
campaign committee at the Hotel
Osburn ,and most efficient work by
it. This work has had the backing,
moral and financial of the Eugene
Daily meetings at luncheon at the
Portland Commercial club by the
Oregon Citizen’s Educational league.

One Set Distributed Among Pre

In accordance with the plan start

practical experience, in assisting the
local papers to cover the election re

Members of the advanced classes

provided for the purpose. The jour
nalism students will be responsible
for the returns from all the precincts,
and a certain number of them will be
assigned to one or two apiece. The
blanks will, have printed places for
the “ayes” and “nays;” and are so
arranged that they can be pasted to
gether in a convenient manner for
adding the total.
The blanks will be taken to the
offices a.t the end of each hour,
where the more experienced college

OREGON MAN AT CORNELL
Windnagle Looks Good to Easterners
But Can’t Run This Year.
Windnagle, former University of
Oregon middle-distance runner, who
entered Cornell this fall, is being
boosted as one of the most promis
ing of the younger runners at the
Ithaca institution. Windnagle was
a wonder in the northwest and was
oonsidered to be one of the top-notch
ers in intercollegiate company.
Although Windnagle will not be
eligible for the Cornell team this
year, on account of the one-yea r-resi
dence rule, he is turning out with
the squad and is getting the benefit
of the high-class training. He is a
little fellow, standing only 5 feet 6
inches tall, but has wonderful speed
and has marks of 1:56 in the half and
4:29 in the mile.

To All Officers and Employes:
This circular letter is not intend

I am deeply impressed with the
importance to the state of Oregon
of the issue raised by the referen
dum on the Oregon Uinversity ap
propriations, to be voted on at the
state election, Tuesday, November 4,
1913. Believing as 1 do that nothing
is more essential to the welfare of
the state than the proper support of
its schools and that the settlement
and development of the Willamette
Valley by a desirable class of people
will be promoted by the firm estab
lishment of this institution of higher
education, 1 take this means of ask
ing your personal study of the ques
tions at issue in this election.
I will therefore ask you to take
the time to go to the pojls on Tues
day next and to take an interest in
this important issue. While I do not
insist upon your adopting my views
on this question or wish to interfere
in any way with your own freedom in
exericsing your privilege as a voter,
1 do not heBitate to ask you, if you
agree with me that the University
should be supported, to vote "Yes”
upon numbers 300 and 302 on the
official ballot, and to urge your
friends to the same course.
J. H. YOUNG,
AT ALBANY IMPROVED
Walker and Boylen Return From
Graduate-manager Dean Walker
returned yesterday from Albany
where he met Dr. E. J. Stewart of
Corvallis to make the final arrange
ments for the handling of the large
crowd which is expected In Albany
November 8 to witness the Oregon
O. A. C. football game. Assistant
manager of football, Tom Boylen,
“The seats have been so numbered
and blocked off that there will be no
trouble In handling the crowds as
there was last year,” said Walker.
"The seats have been measured and
will be numbered so that when one
purchases his ticket he can tell ex
actly where he will sit. This will
avoid the endless confusion which has
occurred when the seats were simply
blocked off into sections for the var
ious delegations with some of the
sections having too few neats for the
tickets sold, and others having too
“Special seat sales will be held in
Portland, Salem, Eugene, and Cor
vallis before the game and every op
portunity will be given the specta

“Sections have been set aside for
the several delegations which will be
there from the two schools as well as
from Salem and Portland. The root

BY ONE POINT
AGGIE SECOND TEAM BEAT
7-6 IN HARDEST GAME
BEZDEK'S MEN IN GOOD SHAPE
Normandin Responsible for Ore
gon’s Only Touchdown. Big
bee Kicks Goal But Fails in
Attempted Drop Kicks.
(By Raeman Fleming)
In one of the. hardest fought
games of the season, the Oregon
second team won from the O. A. C.
substitutes yesterday by a score of
7-6, overcoming the touchdown lead
auuexed by the Aggies early In the
first quarter. According to the
showing made by Bezdek’s pupils,
the University players have it all *
over the Corvallis contingent as far
as physical condition is concerned,
for during the entire contest it was
found unnecessary to replace a sin
gle man, while almost the entire O.
A. C. lineup was changed.
O. A. C. kickoff received by Coss
man who was nailed on the 4 5-yard
line. Bigbee punted 20 yards to
Billy who ran back 25. O. A. C.
made yardage in two line bucks.
The ball was shoved over for a touch
down. No goal. Score 6-0. In the
remainder of the quarter, no tallies
were made. O. A. C. failed on a
place kick from the 30-yard line.
Bigbee kicked out 30 yards from the
20-yard line. No return. End of
O. A. C. punts 40. Bigbee re
turns 25 and fails to drop kick goal.
In a punting duel which ensued,
Lutz had the edge on Bigbee. The
ball worked back and forth in O. A,
C.’s territory and the quarter ended
with the pigskin in the Aggies' pos
session on their own 12-yard line.
O. A. C. 45-yard kickoff returned
25 by Normandip. Oregon makes
yardage. Forward pass, Bigbee to
Qarrett gains 2 0 yards. Oregon fum
bles, Lutz punts 4 0 and Bigbee runs
ball back 10 yards. Forward pass,
Bigbee to Tuerck gains 15 yards.
Oregon fumbles but recovers ball.
Normandin goes through left tackle
for 5 yards, stopping on O. A. C. 2
yard line. Normandin sent through
for touchdown. Bigbee kicks goal.
Score: Oregon 7, O. A. C. 6.
O. A. C. kicks off 45 yards. Big
been runs back 2 0. Bigbee punts
25 yards and Garrett recovers ball.
The quarter ended after an ex
change of punts with O. A. C.’s ball
on their own 38-yard line.
In the last quarter no scoring was
done. O. A. C. took a fresh lease of
life. Bigbee lost a chance for in
creasing the Oregon score by failure
to drop kick. In the last four min
utes of play Lutz failed to place kick
from 40-yard line. Bigbee ran back
kick 5 yards. O. A. got the ball
on a fumble, and Lutz failed on an
other place kick. Bigbee carried the
ball for 20 yards. Game ended with
Oregon’s ball on their own 30-yard
