Offside Plays on Part of Oregon
Discerned With Alarming
Frequency. ’Varsity Eleven
Badly Crippled.
(By a fan)
The joke was on Oregon at Salem
Saturday. When the news reached
Eugene that Bezdek’s pride and joy
had been beaten 6 to 3 by Willam
ette, local fans concluded either that
"Obak,” the official Emerald re
porter, had become a victim to the
pitfalls of a wet town, or that the
Western Union wires were crossed.
But it was true. So now let’s take
Coach Bezdek’s prescription and for
get it, and every man of us work
that much harder to annihilate O.
A. C. and Washington.
Meanwhile, it is the function of
the Emerald to give the facts, so
here goes. Oregon doesn’t believe in
alibis and seldom uses them, but
there were a few dozen extenuating
circumstances at Salem which can
not be ignored.
Dame Fortune’s fickleness, weird
penalties, an inundated field, the
gathering darkness, over-confidence,
a torn and tattered lineup, and the
unexpected fight shown by the Meth
odists, were the main ingredients
which went into the concoction of
Oregon’s cup of sorrow', not to men
tion numerous others of greater or
less importance.
Oregon Needed Lesson.
Great credit is due Dr. Sweetland
for the results he has accomplished
at Willamette. With a squad com
posed of players who for the most
part could not make an ordinary
prep school eleven, he has perfected
a machine which was able to teach
Oregon a much-needed lesson. That
the Willamette team would have the
show of a clergyman at a rag dance
in another game with Oregon, or with
any other conference team, is not
claimed by any spectator at Satur
day’s game understanding the differ
ence between a football gridiron and
the kitchen variety of that utensil.

Last Week’s Contests With Doc
and Willamette Do Not
Pay Expenses
The following two reports of the
football games held in Eugene with
O. A. C.’s second team and at Salem
with Willamette show a deficit of
$37.35. However the Willamette
game itself shows a surplus of $37.65
according to the reports in the of
fice of Graduate-Manager Dean

paying for themselves by any means,
are about what we can expect at this
time of the season. Most of the at
tendance at the local games is com
posed of students and they all have
student tickets. The remaining two
games with O. A. C. and Washington
I expect to fix us up financially.”

Oregon’s Famous Trainer Will
Be Able to Teach Track and
Other Activities by Means of
Action Pictures
(By Raeman T. Fleming)
Bill Hayward’s moving picture has
arrived and Bill cannot resist the
temptation to show it to everyone
who gets near enough to his office
to have u look at it. He can hardly
be blamed as it is surely an excel
lent one. It is a Williamson make
and is simple yet useful in a hun
dred ways.
‘‘This is what they call the claw
movement,” said Bill, pointing to a
bunch of machinery that would make
an expert mechanic sit up and take
notice. “See that little thing there
that bobs in and out? That is the
claw, it grabs hold of the film and
pulls it by the lens.”
“See this little thing? Well that
is the focus tube. You can look
through there and see when you have
it focused correctly. You are look
ing through where the film will pass
when you look out through that.
Then when you nave it focused to
your satisfaction you put this little
cap on and you are ready to shoot
“Now this crank that you see here
is movable from this position down
to that position where it will only
take one’exposure to a revolution of
the crank. Where it is now it takes
eight to a revolution or sixteen to
the second. That is the best speed
for clear pictures. The other is used
to make things speed up. You have
seen those men jump from the water
up onto a bridge, well that is done
by using the crank down in the slow
position and revolving the film back
wards. You know, the slower the
picturo3 are taken the faster they
move on the screen.
"Now this little thing,” pointing to
a cigar cutter arrangement, “is ^
film punch. When you are through
with a picture you move that and
then you develop the film you can
tell where the end of that picture
will come.
“See that stop-watch looking
thing? That is the film indicator.
You set that when you start and then
you can look into it at any time and
tell how much film you have taken.
That is a valuable asset, as film costs
4 cents a foot.
“Isn’t that some rig? The best
part of the whole thing is that tri
pod. You can take a picture from
any position and then you can point
it at the stars if you want to.
“I have some film coming down in
a couple of days.

“We expect every able bodied
man and woman in the University to
be in the Hub City on November 8
and we want every student out to

Reddle will give readings from Mae
terlinck’s Monna Vanna in Villard
Hall tomorrow night at eight o’clock.
Professor Rieddie’s readings are at

Out of 4 22 registered in precinct
number 14, which is considered one
of the strongest for the University,
388 had voted by four o’clock this
afternoon. The information was
given out that a large percent of
those voting were vomrn, 18 of
those voting were sworn in today,
but the discrepancy between the
number registering and voting is
I accounted for by the supposition that
many visited less busy polls in order
to be able to poll their votes in time.

Friday Evening
Having secured an old burned
house on the corner of Hilyard and
Thirteenth and the wooden parts o:
an old street car and the service of a
P. E. & E. work car to haul the lat
ter, the men of the Erosh class were
out in full force this morning with
axes and crowbars, tearing down the
burned house and hauling the lum
ber with two wagons and teams to

George Colton, chairman of the
Frosh bonfire committee, through
H. E. Owen, a local real estate deal
er, telegraphed to Klamath Falls,
where the owner of the burned house
resides, and obtained permission to
tear it down and haul the lumber
away to use in the big fire on the
night of the rally, Friday, Novembor
Colton states that he is well satis
fied with the way the Frosh have
be&n working, as they have torn
down the whole house In less than
ten hours. He has another burned
house In view upon which the Frosh
will work, if they get the present
amount of material cleaned up soon
The Frosh claim that the bonfire
this year will be the most stupendous
affair ever executed by a Freshman
class at Oregon.

And the room buzzed with the col

Hon. L. T. Harris Optimistic Ov.
er Outcome of Election. Says
Cause Is Righteous and Peo
ple Will Vote on Right Side.
(By Bert Lombard)
Monday evening, at the big elec
lion rally, briskly burning Oregon
Spirit was the predominating feature.
A heavy downpour of rain failed to
dampen it. It would not be put out.
In answer to "Yell Leader"
Young’s call and in defiance of the
rain over two hundred men turned
out to aid the citizens of the city in
getting out every vote for the elec
tion. A large number of men met
on the campus in front of the Dorm
itory, formed a serpentine line aud
headed by the student body band
started on their joyous journey for
the Eugene theatre. As the proces
sion moved on the line continued to
increase in length till almost every
man in college was included. Will
amette street was crowded with en
thusiastic citizens. The students
marched to the theatre and occupied
(he front seats which had been re
served for them. Every seat was
occupied, the aisles full, the top of
the balcony stairway crowded and
the doorways were full. The stu
dents sang Boola Boola and other
songs until the curtain was raised,
revealing the Girls’ Choral Club, the
University Glee Club, and the princi
pal speakers of the evening.
S. H. Friendly Speaks.
Senator L. E. Bean, chairman of
the referendum committee and the
chairman of the rally introduced S.
11. Friendly, whom he characterized
as the “The Guardian of the Uni
versity" and one who has given more
time and money than any one other
person to keep the University on its
feet. "Tomorrow is the battle of
ballots. The time to quit, working
is when tire ballot is closed,” said Mr.
Friendly. Warming up to his sub
ject he said, “1 want the friends of
the University to show that the ma
jority is such that it never will be
disturbed again. Let every one of
us put on his armour and work his
best tomorrow.”

to say, none of those who failed were
from Oregon. ’The Oregon students
