BEZDEK IS NO
LONGER SURE
CLAIMS OVER-CONFIDENCE
DANGEROUS TO OUTCOME
OF ALBANY GAME
TEAM A WEEK BtHIND AGGIES
Hayward Believes in Bezdek’s
Powers as Mentor and Pre
dicts That Aggies Will Have
Trouble With Oregon Line.
Coach Bezdek, for the -first time,
has discouraged confidence among
the students on the result of the com
ing football games. With Parsons,
Cook, Beckett and Bryant on the
list of injured, the big coach has not
so much faith in the undefeatable
Oregon Spirit.
Yesterday he said to the team:
“You fellows had better drop this
air of confidence. We have no cinch
on the Albany game; it will take
everything we have to win it. With
four of our best men injured, the
team is playing raggedly, and still
show that we are a week behind in
training. Their work lacks preci
sion, and this cockey attitude will
not make for better work.”
Bill Hayward is still optimistic
though, and told the student body
yesterday that Oregon has the great
est coach in the country. He pre
dicted that the O. A. C. backfield
would find distinct difficulties in
finding the holes necessary to make
headway through Oregon’s line.
“Final arrangements for the Ore
gon-O. A. C. football game have been
completed in full,” said Graduate
Manager 6ean Walker, who return
ed from Portland and Albany Wed
nesday.
“The Oregon contingent will sit
on the opposite side of the field this
year from that of last,” said Walker,
yesterday. “It is important that all
of Oregon’s rooters sit together and
to do this the students will have pur
chased their tickets at the Book Ex
change before Friday night. After
that positively no student tickets
will be sold and those buying tickets
after this date will have to buy the
regular tickets at the regular rates
and will not be seated in the Oregon
rooters’ section.
“Excursions will be run on both
the Oregon Electric and the South
ern Pacific. The tickets entitle the
purchasers to leave here any time
Saturday and return any time before
Monday night. The Southern Paci
fic special leaving here at 1 stops
right at the field and returns imme
diately after the game.
“We expect a large excursion train
from Portland carrying both Oregon
and O. A. C. rooters and this game
promises to be the largest attended
game ever played in the state. All
parts of the state will be represent
ed, several towns having petitioned
for special reservations. Also a
goodly number of Washington sup
porters are expected to be down for
the game.”

FINAL ARRANGEMENTS
MADE FORO. A. C. GAME
Manager Walker to Complete
Details for Glee Club Trip
As Well
Graduate-manager Dean Walker
| left last night for Portland where
j he will complete arrangements for
the Oregon O. A. C. football game,
November » and also for the Thanks
giving trip of the Glee club.
“The Glee club sings in Portland
the night of the Oregon-Multnomah
game at the Lincoln High school
building and both football teams will
be present as guests of the club. Stops
will also be made at Astoria, and
probably at Salem and Albany if I
can get suitable dates f&r that week
end.
Many of the towns have put in
bids for the club but owing to the
limited amount of time during the
Thanksgiving vacation, four concerts
will be about all that we can give.
“On my way back from Portland
I will stop at a number of the places
along the road in closing up the seat
sale arrangements for the Alba.ny
game.”
REPORTERS' CONTEST IS
WON BY REGISTER TEAM
Contest in Covering Election
Returns Shows Students
Efficient Workers
The election-night contest of
speed, accuracy, and thoroughness,
in regard to the covering of the vari
ous precincts in Eugene and Spring
field, between the university stu
dents headed by Waiter r'tmm, work
ing through the Morning Register
office, and those headed by Henry
Fowler, through The Daily Guard
office, resulted in a slight victory
for Dimm's side. >
“A city editor could well be proud
of his reporters, if they gave such
efficient service as the university
students did Tuesday night,” said
Prof. Eric W. Allen, in commenting
on the contest.
C. V. Dyment states that the two
teafcs were so close that a bare dif
ference of three per cent can be made
between the two • teams, Dimm’s
forces being accredited with 85
points against Fowler’s 82. The of
fice forces were about equal in effi
ciency; there was nothing lost or
gained on either side.
As the election officials at the poll
ing places were friendly to the main
issue, information was cheerfully
given to the student reporters and
thus the early sending in of reports
was greatly facilitated.

On Tuesday the citizens of Ore
gon by a large majority, decided
that the University should not be
hampered and crippled by refusing
it the above two appropriations.
Again the University has been placed
on a sound footing and left foot
free to grow as the wealth of the
state should permit.
The result was secured only after
a long and hard fight, carried on
by the numerous friends of the Uni
versity So far, out of the returns
for 30 counties of the state, only 6
counties have voted unfavorably.
These counties are Yamhill, Clack
amas, Linn, Morrow, Marion and
Polk.
In proportion to population Lane
county returned the largest majority
for the University bills. The bills
carried in this county by a majority
of 7528.
Corvallis Citizens Are Loyal.
In Corvallis the University meas
ures carried by more than 350 out
of a total of 798 votes cast in the
city. The students and faculty of
O. A. C. as far as the returns can
show cast a heavy majority in favor
of the measures; which should indi
cate a friendly attitude.
Albany was lost to the support of
the University by only li votes.
Springfield returned nearly as
large a majority in proporition to
population as Eugene.
Hood River gave the two meas
ures sfong support. Other towns
which supported the University are
Baker, Astoria, Medford, Roseburg,
Pendleton, The Dalles, Klamath
Falls, Marshfield, Grants Pass.
Practically all of Southern Oregon
supported the measures. One pe
culiar vote was that of Douglas coun
ty, where a slight majority was cast
against the building measure while
the repair bill was approved.
Multnomah gave a majority of
two to one for the repairs measure
and about two to one for the build
ing measure.
CONGRATULATIONS MANY
Among the first to send telegrams
was A. H. Harris of the Portland
Labor Press, who has been a strong
supporter of the University during
the entire campaign.
Telegrams from the University of
California and the Portland O. A. C.
alumni were among the early mes
sages to be received.
STUDENTS HOLD BIG RALLY
Women Also Join in Celebration.
Resolutions Passed Thank
ing Citizens
For the first time in the history
of the University, women marched
side by side with men in the rally
yesterday morning when the news of
the University’s victory in Tuesday's
elections was announced as almost
certain.
Not realizing the amount of en
thusiasm which was lying dormant in
the student body, the faculty had
declared no official holiday, but at
eight o’clock Wednesday morning a
parade was started on the campus
which eventually made classes a mat
ter of secondary interest. The
marchers tramped through all the
lecture halls and while serpentining
in Dr. Stewart’s stronghold the pro
cession was joined by a few dozen of
the disciples of equal rights. The
number gradually swelled until it in
cluded half the women of the Univer
sity.
The rooters' band was hastily got
together and the students marched
through town, the co-eds in the cen
ter and a double file of men on
either side. Eugene people in the
business section, abandoned stores
and shops to watch the rally, and
cheer for the University, as the
marchers went past .
In only one respect was the march
ing of the men and women together
found to detract from the general ef
ficiency of the demonstration. In
winding up at a downtown crossing
to give the Oregon yells, it was found
necessary to halt the procession for
several minutes while the college
women marched to a point of safety.
On the way back to the campus, a
half dozen freshmen suddenly de
serted the procession, but appeared
.later \Vith a coffin borrowed from a
Eugene undertaker, and purporting
to contain the corpse of the referen
dum. The objective point of the
march was Villard Hall, which was
filled to overflowing by the students
assembled.
Probably never in the history of
the University has there been more
Oregon Spirit exhibited at a student
body assembly than that attendant at
yesterday morning’s gathering in
Villard Hall. The assembly intended
for the purpose of rehearsing Oregon
songs preparatory for the O. A. C.
game Saturday, was turned into an
enthusiastic rally for the purpose ol
celebrating Tuesday’s overwhelming
victory at the polls.
President Motschenbacher, of the
Student Body, presided. He intro
duced the first speaker, Allen H.
Eaton, of Eugene, as an alumnus tc
whom much credit is due for Tues
day’s victory.
“I want to thank the students and
faculty of the University for the in
valuable services rendered in behalf
of the University’s campaign,” Mr
Eaton said.
“To the committee of the Eugene
Commercial Club also a great por
tion of credit for the victory is due.
The value of their work cannot be
estimated.
“The vote Tuesday was significant
not only to the University of Oregon
but to those states in the Union whe
do not have women suffrage. I air
confident that the victory was due
in no small measure, to the vote ol
the women. It illustrates what wo
men will do when given the ballot.
“The winning of the electior
marks the beginning of a new' ant
better era for the^Unlversity.”
In conclusion Mr. Eaton eulogizec
the work of President Campbell anc
urged every student to show theii
loyalty to the head of the institu

but the forty-five men in the Dorm
scooped the rest* of the University
by holding the first rally at 1:30 a.
in. Wednesday morning.
Every man of the Dorm club who
had retired was aroused by the tur
bulent celebraters and told to put on
his clothes. Then the entire crowd
serpentined over to Mary Sptller
Hall where the Freshmen were told
to mount the porch and sing. They
sung.
George Colton was in the ball park
at this wee sma' hour keeping a
lonely vigil over the'material for the
Freshman bonfire. Besides the girls
in the Mary Spiller Hall, he was the
only one that heard the Freshmen’s
effort and he has a halr-raisiirg story
to tell of it.
The Freshmen were called upon
for speeches, which were followed by
yells and songs, after which the
meeting adjourned.
PLAYERS IN THANKSGIVING
GAME MAY BE NUMBERED
Scheme Suggested Some Time
Ago by Portland Men May
Be Adopted
“lu regard to the plan of number
ing the players in the Multnomah
Oregon game, although I have not
been communicated with as yet by
the Multnomah club, 1 think it is a
good plan,” said Manager Walker
yesterday.
The plan as suggested by the
Portland manager Is that each play
er be given a number which will be
fastened to his back something simi
lar to the plan used by the entrees at
a roundup or some such event. The
names of the players and their num
bers are printed on the programs and
the spectators can keep track of die
players while they are in action.
Many of the grandstands are so far
from the teams when in action that
it is impossible for the spectators
who are not well acquainted with the
players to keep track of them. Also
it will make it possible to tell who
is taken out and who is put in by
simply glancing at the program and
comparing the numbers.
“This system is used a great deal
in the east and since there can be no
reason for the players objecting that
1 know of, I am In favor of starting
this plan at the Multnomah game,”
skid the manager.

Senator Louis 10. Bean, of Kugene,
was the second speaker. Senator
Bean was chairman of a committee
of the Eugene Commercial Club
which, for five months previous to
the election, labored unceasingly to
create favorable sentiment through
out the state for the University ap
propriations.
In the course of a 10-mlnute
speech Senator Bean said:
“A splendid victory is ours this

asking too much, for every'student of
the University, men and women,
realize themselves the tremendous
effort that must be made for the
game next Saturday. Nothing short
of every man and woman in the Uni

ning. One other thing. The strength
and pip’ of the men must be con
served for the game the following
day. In order to do this, I do not in
tend to make the men yell and give

same extent as before. This may
seem to some to make the rally
dead,’ but experience has shown that
it is the only thing to do if the best
yelling is to be expected at Albany.”
These were the words of “Dutch”
Young, yell leader, yesterday after
noon, in reference to the rally Fri
day evening.
Promptly at 7 o’clock Friday eve
ning, the men will start from the
Dormitory taking the usual route and
gathering numbers as they go. They
will burn red fire on the down town
corners; and then serpentine to Kin
caid Field. Simultaneously with the
arrival inside the gates, the huge
mass of combustible material will be
touched off and will make the scene
of the rally as bright as day.
Speeches by prominent men and
students will follow and Coach Bea
dek and Trainer Bill Hayward will
give their final statements. The de
tails of the program, which Is in
charge of Young, have not been de
finitely decided. The “Oregon
Toast’’ will be practiced several
times.
“The bonfire is now beginning to
assume great proportions,” said
George Colton, chairman of the com
mittee today. "We will make ©very
effort to surpass last year’s fire. A
number of barrels of tar and crude
oil will be distributed throughout the
framework to insure a thoroughly
combustible core. A canvass of the
downtown business districts is being
made for funds and these will be de
voted to special features to be de
