OREGON LINE TAILS TO HOLD
Aggies Fall Down In Use of For
ward Pass; Oregon Gets
Three Out of Ten Tries. Do
bie, in Albany, Watches.
(By Raeman T. Fleming)
The man who made up those little
buttons with “IT can’t be did, Ag
gies” on them knew whereof he
spoke. They could not do it. From
a bystander’s point of view it looked
like certain defeat at the end of the
first half, but to the wearers of those
little buttons it merely looked as if
the Oregon players would have to
extend themselves a- little or they
would be too late. They extended
themselves and in the last quarter
tied the score, 10 to 10. Here is
some dope that shows how things
stood in the two halves:
iFenton, who was not puntjng his
best, booted the ball 9 times for a
total yardage of 340 yards. This
made his average 38 yards. O. A. C.
punted 13 times for a total of 4<0
yards, or an average of 36 yards.
Fenton kicked one field goal out of
five attempts, while Blackwell made
one good out of three attempts.
In bucking the line, Oregon made
yardage four times in the first half
as against seven successful endeavors
on the part of the O. A. C. bunch.
In the second half Oregon made yard
age six times while the O. A. C.
hopefuls were not once able to nego
tiate the necessary ten.
As for penalties Oregon received
9 setbacks for over-zealousness, to
taling 60 yards. O. A. C. was penal
ized four times for an aggregate of
In the forward passing Oregon
was successful three times out of ten
attempts, as opposed to the tjiree un
successful endeavors on the part of
__ o. A. C. got away with their place
kick in the very first of the. game.
It was in the first ten minutes of
play that they secured their first
score. Fenton kicked the ball over
the bars when there was but 4 min
utes left to play.
Gilmore Dobie, the arouser of the
Seattle spirit, was in the crowd. He
was probably trying to get a line on
the style of play, but if he took back
any information from that game he
is a wonder. From the way the men
played in the game at Albany Satur
day he is quite apt to think that the
team has been overrated. If these
tidings are carried back to Seattle,
the Washington team may come
to Portland teeming with confidence
—and you can never tell.

TERESA CARRENO TO
APPEAR IH EUGENE
Famous Musician Comes Under
Auspices of School
(By Ruth Dorris)
The noted Spanish pianist, Madame
Teresa Carreno will appear in Eu
gene next Thursday evening, giving
to local music lovers a rare oppor
tunity to hear one of the world’s art
ists who has attained fame.
Madame Carreno, a Venezuelan by
birth, was the daughter of one of its
ministers of state, himself a fine
musician, who was her first teacher
Her technique and musical develop
ment proceeded through study with,
Louis Gottschalk and Antpn Ruben-!
While Madame Carreno is famous |
tor her mastery of the instrument,
her own compositions are a delight
to artists of every degree.
In 1912 Madame Carreno toured
Europe, giving memorable recitals
in its principal cities where she will
i long be remembered for her skillful
interpretation of Bach, Chopin,
Brahms and especially MacDowell.
Like Schumann-Heink, Madame
Carreno is supreme in her art and is
now at the climax of a long and won

CHOOSING OF QUESTION
LAST WEEK ALLOWS FOR
FIVE NEW MEN ARE NEEDED
Only One of Last Year’s Team
Out for Place. Subject Chos
en for Discussion Is Budget
(By Bert Lombard.)
“Resolved, That the Executive
Department should be made respon
sible for the National Budget. It is
agreed that the term ‘responsible,’
within the meaning of this resolu
tion, shall be interpreted as laying
upon the executive the duty of in
troducing the budget into Congress,
the right being reserved to Congress
to amend only by reducing items,”
is the question submitted by the
University as the one for the Wash
ington - Stanford - Oregon debate.
Washington and Stanford, likewise,
will submit questions on the same
general subject. Then a vote will
be taken of first and second choice
of each college. The question re
ceiving the largest number of points
will be the one used for the contest.
Already a number of men are hard
at work in preparation for the first
tryout, November 22. The question
of ‘‘Budget Responsibility” will be
used for the tryouts. The debate
i teams this year will be almost en
tirely composed of new men, there
being only two old men back, Dal
K’ng and Vernon Motschenbacker.
Motschenbacker will be unable to de
bate on account of other work. Thus,
there are places for five new men;
three team places and two alternates.
In addition to the Alumni medal,
which is given to the best individual
debator, there will be several other
substantial cash prizes.
According to Coach Prescott, the
debate outlook is not bright. He is
as yet unacquainted with the meter
ial. "Only by hard and persistent
.vork will we be able to come «out
ahead,” is his summary of the situ
Coach Prescott urges that all who
intend to tryout see him immediately
so he can get in touch with each man

Hap Miller dons his suit every

Hunt is in bad condition from in

will be another spectator.

FIGHT FOR UNIVERSITY WAS
A FIGHT FOR THE
PRESS HELPED IN CAMPAIGN
Women of State as Well as Men
Are Responsible for Victory.
Many Organizations Work in
Favor of Appropriations.
The smoke of the conflict carried
on by the University and its friends
lias finally cleared away and the Uni
versity has emerged victorious by
a large majority of votes. Many ask
the question. "Who is responsible
for tills result?” Hon. Allen Eaton
Alien asked this question said, "The
credit for this great victory belongs
to the people of Oregon. It is their
figiit, they made it. The credit can
not be placed upon the shoulders of
no one person or organization.”
Mr. Eaton, along with other per
sons acquainted with the situation
believes, "the greatest single con
tribution to our success can be ac
corded to the press.
Next to the work of the press he
places that of the newly enfranchis
ed women of the state.
Probably the most conspicuous wo
men of the state is Abigail Scott
Duniway who for many years of her
life has spent time for the cause of
suffrage. Mrs. Duniway made speech
es at public meetings, wrote scores
of personal letters "imploring her
sisters of the state to stand by the
University of Oregon."
In reference to the work of the
students of the University Mr. Eaton
says, "that the letter writing cam
paign of the Student body was the
most successfully wag-d by any or
gnnzution during the contest.” He
commended the work of the young
women of the University.
“The quartette of the Glee club
contributed much toward drawing
crowds and making favorable im
pressions for the University at Port
land for a period of some ten days
previous to the election.
"The faculty worked in a quiet
and yet in an efective way. There
were three members of the faculty
who wrote over one hundred letters
besides doing personal work and oth
er members did as much in propor
"As to the University of Oregon
Alumni, as an association, it has
done its full share of the work.
"The Oregon Education league and
the Peoples’ Higher Educational
league were probably the two most
conspicuous organizations. But the
Oregon Federation of Women’s clubs
and scores of organizations or one
kind and another have contributed.
