Fast Playing In Flashes Shows
What Team May Do in Fu
ture. Nelson, Bigbee and
Annuhsen Star in Infield.
' (By Everett SaundeW)
The Chemawa Indians, whom the
Varsity met in the first game of the
season yesterday afternoon, pushed
over a irun In their half of the last'
frame, ‘breaking a 4-all tie and nos
ing Oregon Into a 4^-5 defeat. The
twe teams exhibited gilt-edged ferm
only in flashes, but they , gave the
crowd all the more thrills on that ac
count. They made doubles In big
league style; they juggled„the ball on
occasions and pulled bones, and at
times they laid on the pill in- the
manner of Ty Cobb.
But if the game was a bit ragged
in places, no one blames the defense
for a few bobbles. Oregon showed
flashes of brilliant work; and with a
few real workouts like the one yes
terday to steady the infield machine,
the Varsity mound-men will be
•backed up by an impenetrable de
fence. "Skeet” Bigbee was a bright
stu, playing errorless ball and field
ing all his ' chances perfectly. He
practically robbed Of a wf or d of a hit
in cthe eighth inning, when, after a
spectacular run, he pulled down a
drive behind second base. This
catch also started Oregon’s third
double, Sanders, who had judged the
drive Cafe, having advanced too far
off first base. Annunsen must be
credited with work of a stellar order.
He was responsible for starting two
of Oregon's.doubles.
First Inning Unfortunate.
The Indian infield showed the re
sult of longer practice In the consist
ency of their work. Their infield,
especially Downie, Adams and Walk
er, is a dependable machine.
Bryant, barring his unsteadiness
in one or two places, pitched a good
game. Seven hits were “gleaned
from his offerings”; and. considering
the fact that the Indians touched
Captain Culver of 0. A. C. up for
nine safe ones in four innings during
their recent game, this is not a bad
showing. The first inning was his
unfortunate period, when three hits
coupled with bobbles by his team
mates netted Chemawa four runs and
placed them within striking distance
of the score.
Decision Loses Game.
In the last half of the first frame
Oregon came back as though deter
mined to tie the score. But with
I*yle Bigbee crossing the plate after
a passed ban for the second run,
Walter, | the Indian ' first basemen,
dug up the hatchet and Umpire Ra
der changed his decision, sending
Bigbee back to third, where he died
when Fenton filed out to center.
The Varsity annexed one more run
in the fourth and two in the fifth.
Then the score remained tied up to
the ninth, when the Indians forced
over the winning run.
The line-up:
Chemawa—Catcher, Lane; first
base, Walker; second base, Adams;
shortstop, Downie; third base, Hun
gary, Pluff; right field, Crawford;
center field, ganders; left field, Jim.
Oregon-^-Catcher, Mptachenbacher;

Oregon—Catch Motschenbacher;
first base, Nelson; second base, Cor
nell; short stop, C. Bigbee; third
base, Annunsen; right field, L. Big

M. Bigbee.

Oregon Gets Revenge for Yes
terday’s Defeat by Knocking
All Pitchers Out of Box and
Swamping Visitors.
The Indians came back after their
5-4 defeat of the Varsity yesterday
and their nine innings of classical
ball, and played like schoolboys.
Oregon played conference ball with
fewer errors than in the first game,
holding the redskins to a single
score and piling up 27 runs on their
side. The game was called in the
sixth at Chemawa’s request in order
that they might catch the homeward

Contest Scheduled for April 3
Will Be Held Some Time
After Vacation.
The Freshman-Sophmore debate
has been postponed from April 3 In
definitely to give room for the Dra
matic club play on that night. “Since
we cannot have the debates on April
3 ute would rather have them on
April 24, after spring vacation, in
connection with the Sophomore bas
ket social, and have the Freshmen
guests of the Sophomores, but the
members of the teams fear they will
lose their ambition during vacation,”
declared Allen O’Connell, who is ar
ranging for a date.
“It would be difficult to have the
debates on the afternoons of April
3 and 4, as some have desired, be
cause of the lack of time for prep
The question for debate is: “Re
solved, That all international dis
putes should be settled by arbitra
tion.” The class team that wins will
receive a prize of $100.
The members of the Freshman
team are: Affirmative, Milton Stod
dard, Nicholas Jaureguy, Martin Nel

Music and Training of Singers
in Charge of Prof. Ralph
For probably the first time In the
history of the University, the Senior
class will have a regular musical
comedy chorus to use In connection
with the class play, “The Soph and
the Prof.,” which will be given dur
ing Junior week-end. The plan 1b
now under consideration by those in
charge of the Senior play and will be
brought up and thoroughly discussed
at the meeting of the class of 1914,
which will be held next Wednesday
afternoon at four o’clock. In case
the chorus plan is adopted, It is ex
pected that Prof. Ralph Lyman will
assist in the picking of the senior
band of songbirds. In any event he
will have charge of the music at the
The class meeting was listed to
have taken place yesterday after
noon, but due to the ball game with
the Chemawa Indians was postponed
until the middle of next week. Be
sides the consideration of the chorus
plan, the cast of the senior play will
be formally announced.
In addition, a committee to have
charge of Commencement arrange
ments will be appointed, according to
Information given out by President
Allie Grout. Choice of a baccalaur
eate speaker will 'be considered, and
plans will be discussed for the stag
ing of a senior baseball gaire some
time before the Easter vacation.

New Resort, Forty MileB From
Eugene With Big Hotel,
Swimming Pool, Shower
Baths and Tennis Oourts.
Oregon’s football squad will leave
this city a week before college opens
next fall and will spend about two
weeks at Nimrod, a new summer re
sort which is being opened about
forty miles up the McKenzie. It Is
expected that about 40 men will
make the trip.
This will be the second time in the
history of the University that the
football squad has taken a fall train
ing trip. The first was In the fall of'
1908, when a similar trip was taken
up the McKenzie.
“This resort is being fixed up in
fine shape,” said Manager Dean
Walker, who has been making the
arrangements for the trip. A new
hotel, shower baths, a swimming
pool, tennis courts, boats on the riv
er, and iots of fishing and good hunt
ing constitute some of the attractions
of the place. The hotel will accom
modate between 50 and 100 people
and is not yet completed. Clarence
Ireland, of Portland, who Is building
the resort, was In the city yesterday.
Jo Take Whole Squad.
“All cf the men that are out for
the squad will be taken along. The
Idea Is to get the men back early and
to get them started In football sea*
son right from the Jump. Hereto
fore the men have been straggling
along anywheres from one to three
weeks late. It is impossible to turn
out a team that will bring satisfac
tory results with this condition star
ing us In the -face, and we decided
that this trip would not only serve
to get them back on time but would
also put them into the best of condi
tion for the hard grind that is to
come afterwards.
“While at the resort, the men will
be put through light exercises con
sisting largely of tramping and swim
ming every day, and enough football
tactics to take the soreness out of
them and land them back in Eugene
in fine condition”
Rexdek likes Scheme.
Coach Bezdek is highly In favor of
the scheme and while he would not
say much regarding it, he believes
that it will be the proper thing to
put his men into shape.
“The hotel Is going to be a fine
structure when completed,” said
Walker. “The walls are constructed
of peeled logs and the entire building
Is built on the rustic plan. The steps
of the stairway are made of half logs
smoothed off. About midway up the
large staircase is a platform for a
large orchestra. The lobby is a large
room whose best feature is a fire
place about the size of one end of my
office here.”
“We are going to have a fine
time, ’ said Captain Johnny Parsons
in speaking of the tr p. “This is Just
what the men will need and we ex
pect to get much better results from
the short vacation in the mountains.
By the time that the*tnen get oqt,
ramble a few miles eirery day, take
a good swl^ and then run through
signals awhile. I figure that we are
going to have a championship team.
‘Beat Washingt&n’ Is our motto and
we are going to live up to it. Watch
Martin W. Hawkins, former Ore
gon star, captain and principal point
winner of last year’s Multnomah
Club team, has announced his perma
nent retirement from track athletics.
Hawkins insists that there is to be
nothing of the “tPattl" about his
farewell, and that he has positively
competed in his last meet.
Formation of Olub Is Being Agi
tated by Enthusiasts of
That Sport
Golf enthusiasts among the Uni
versity students are taking interest
in the handicap tournaments soon to
be held on the Country Club links.
Entries are slow In coming in but be
fore the time for the matches it Is
expected that all the student golf
players will sign.
If sufficient Interest is shown in
this tournament for which there are
two cups up as prizes, It is probable
that a University golf club will be
formed. Plans are under way for
such an organization for next year,
when the grounds near the campus
may be used as a course. However,
a small club this year would make the
carrying out of such a plan more
probable for next year.
Following are the entries in the
handicap match: Wilhelm, Paul
Hendricks, Strang, Gwyn Watson,
Cellars, Melzer, Bean, Burgard, Stev
enson and Young. Hugo Bezdek is
chairman of the match committee of
the Country Club, and will have
charge of the drawings. An entry
fee of fifty cents is charged for par
Only Inter-Oollegiate Activity
of Women Will Probably
Be Extended
A new departure in co-ed debatlut
will be introduced at the Unlversit;
of Oregon this year if Professor E
W. Prescott, debate coach and in
structor In public speaking, has his
way, in the shape of two co-ed teams
which will hold a dual meet with
“This Is practically the only inter*
college activity that the girls have an
opportunity to participate in and I
believe that more chances should be
allowed them,” said Mr. Prescott this
morning. “I have six girls who
are trying out for the team, and if
two teams were picked it would mean
that they would all make the team
and would all receive benefit from
the work. If one is chosen, however,
It means that only three will enter
the meet.
“Washington Is willing to go ahead
and hold a dual debate and I have
put it up to Graduate-Manager Dean
Walker who will place it before the
Executive committee.
“We held one try-out this week
and will hold another next Wednes
day and will make the final choice
then. The date for the debate has
not been set but will probably be
held about the latter part of April i
we can make suitable arrangement?
The question will be the same that
the men used.”
The executive committee which
was supposed to have met this morn
ing did not meet because there was
not a quorum present. “I am not In
favor of holding a dual meet," said
Manager Walker. “While I realize
the benefit to the girls that would be
derived, it means an expense that we
can not afford at this time. How
ever, it is up to the executive com
mittee and if the members see fit to
hold it I can do nothing.”
Social and Business Meeting
eTsterday Evening Is Pleas

The third of the four socials that
are given each year by the Oregon
club was held last evening at the
Y. W. C. A. Bungalow.
The social was a combined busi
ness meetlne and social affair. A
new secretary, Hubert Starr, was
elected, committees appointed and
plans for the balance of the year
were discussed. Fifteen new mem

Ruling Requested That Submit
Edicts. Public Phone, Stu

Week-End Discussed.
"You must make order out of
chaos," said Hugo Bezdek, for three
years a member of the student coun
cil of the University of Chicago, in
addressing the newly formed student
council this morning. "You can do a
tremendous good for the University,"
he continued. "You are holding a
trust, a higher one than any mere
salaried position. I hope that you
will go Into this with the spirit to
accomplish the most possible for
Oregon." Before the meeting was
adjourned, Coach Bezdek expressed
the opinion that the members com

To Be Student Court.
In the future, according to a deci
sion reached, any students or faculty
numbers or students with grievances
or suggestions are encouraged to
present them to the council either In
writing or in person. In the case of
i written suggestion, the communica
tion should be addressed either to
the president or to the secretary.
The council provided that the fac
ulty, be advised of the opportunity to
submit suggestions and complaints
nd a ruling was aBked that faculty
regulations effecting the students be
submitted to the council 'before tak
ing effect.
Graduate Manager Walker, who
vas also present, boosted the Varsity
band and suggested that some means
be taken to show that the service of
the Individual members to the Uni
versity Is recognized. As a result of
this suggestion, a committee was ap
lointed to take steps to Introduce a
new student body activity to be
cnown as the “Student Body Band.”
in order to accomplish this the In
troduction of an amendment to the
student body constitution and the
mssage of-such an amendment will
be necessitated.
Debating Is Discussed.
James Donald, representing ora
tory and debate, spoke before the
council, advocating the introduction
of a double co-ed debate between
Washington and Oregon. He stated
hat Washington was willing to send
a team to Eugene, at Oregon’s ex
pense, and that the only objection on
the part of Oregon would He in the
flOO outlay which would be made
necessary. He cited also the statis
tics showing that while the Oregon
women contribute approximately half
In the way of student body taxes the
amount expended from the student
treasury on co-ed activities Is only
five or ten per cent of the total ex
penditure on student activities.
Manager Walker objected to this
on the ground of expense and the
fact that such a debate had not been
provided for. The matter was re
ferred to the executive committee for
settlement, but the council went on
record as favoring debate, and a
committee consisting of Fred Har
desty, Edith Still and Del Stanard
was appointed to devise means of
awakening new Interest In forensics.
Five men and one woman will
have charge of Junior week-end ar
rangements as a result of a decision
made by the council. This commit
tee is composed of Vernon Motschen
bacher, Dean Walker, A1 Davies.
