upon the Executive the duty of in

to amend by reducing items only.

10-1ISSOORE. JAMISON GETS
BEARS’ ONLY RUN ON
WELCH, BRYANT AGAINST T
Tuerck and Fleming Hold Town
Team Practically Hitless.
Game Not Sufficient to Give
Line on Players.
(By Everett Saunders)
In the first practice game of the
season played yesterday afternoon
between the Varsity and a team com
posed of local players, former Ore
gon stars, Snd present Varsity mate
rial, Coach Bezdek’s men piled up a
score of 11-1 against their oppon
ents. The game was not what the
score indicates except in the third
frame when four hits and three er
rors drove Welch out of the box, and
a hit and three passes off Bryant
and three errors by his team mates
netted Oregon nine runs.
The only run “or the “Bears” was
acquired in the first Inning when
Jamison, forfner Varsity first base
man and now of the Portland Colts,
smashed the first ball Tuerck sent
him over center field for a home run.
The rest of the Bears either fanned
the air or hit into the air-tight mitts
of their opponents.
Both Welch and Bryant worked
well for the BearB except in the fatal
third frame. Tuerck and Fleming
held the town team hitless except for
Jamison’s home run. Coach Bezdek
changed his playerB frequently, test
ing them out in the various positions.
However, after the game he said that
it had not been sufficient to give
him a line on the men.
