SEASON RECORDS POINT TO
OREGON VICTORY AT
TEN MEN MAKE TRIP NORTH
Six Schools Enter Teams of 8
Men in Northwest Confer
ence Track Meet to Be Held
in Pullman Friday.
Bill Hayward left this morning
with ten star track men for Pull
man where he expects to grab the
Northwest championship in track.
The conference meet is held under
the auspices of W. S. C. this year,
and eight man teams from each of
the six colleges in the conference
will compete in what promises to be
one of the fastest meets in confer
If all the men who have fairly
well established records come thru
in the meet Friday on the Pullman
campus, Hayward expects Oregon to
to win as the majority of the firsts
in the dual meets this year have
gone to Bill’s proteges. O. A. C. took
but four out of fourteen firsts here
Junior week-end and at Seattle, Ore
gon men annexed eight out of the
same number of events.
Loucks Should Place.
The sprints will probably go to
Pullman and Idaho, and the middle
distance will have able contenders
Louc s of Oregon should show up
strong in the quarter and the half
will lie between Reynolds and Nel
son, with Clyde a close third. The
mile will undoubtedly go to Clyde
and the two mile to Payne. The hur
dles are hard to dope but in case
Pee is entered other entries will
have to run their best to beat him
in climbing the high sticks. Lock
hart, McCroskey and Hoover will
probably be the point winners in the
low hurdles. In the field events all
colleges will figure. Stuller and
Crane fighting for the high jump,
Walters and Parsons being first
place contenders in the broad jump
and Williams and Smith trying for
first honors in the pole vault. The
shot will be a toss up between Cook
and Johnson with Edmunds runner
up and the discus should be taken
by Cole, with Heidenreich a close
second. The javelin will go to Buck
Phillips and its a gamble who will
take the other places in this event.
Track Season Successful.
With three dual meets safely tuck
ed away and the possibility of the
conference meet going to Oregon,
the track enthusiasts feel that this
season has been one of the most suc
cessful ones that Hayward has ever
had. Considering the fact that but
five of last year’s letter men appear
ed thife spring at the first track
call more is the glory to Bill Hay
ward for turning out a near cham
pionship, if not a championship
The men who made the trip and
from whom Bill will enter an eight
ma nteam are Telford, Loucks, Nel
son, McConnell, Payne, Stuller, Par
sons, Fee, Cook and Heidenreich.

PROSH ACTORS DELIGHT AS
SEVEN HEADLINERS ON LIST
Japanese Songs and Jiu Jitsu
Proved Most Original Stunt.
Song and Dance by Three
Co-eds Big Hit of Morning.
(By Edison Marshall)
The Freshman class, following the
precedent set by other Freshman
classes put on a class hour this morn
ing that was entertaining from be
ginning to end. “F. R. Eshman
Vodeveel” was the title of the class
hour, and the bill presented corres
ponded to a star bill on the Orpheum
even to stage effects.
After the overture, the first num
ber was Fujimakd and Ogasawara in
Japanese Song and Jiu Jitsu. Clad in
Japanese costume they first sang two
songs in their native language. The
orchestra accompanied with cymbals,
so that a picturesque Oriental effect
was given. Then throwing off their
silks, the two Japanese demonstrated
Jiu Jitsu. They threw each other
about the mat without regard for
bones or tender spots.
The second jrtunt drew four en
cores. Echo Zahl, Emma Wjooten
and Florence Johnson gave a song
and dance that had comic opera “off
the map." The song that made the
biggest hit was one dedicated to
Jack-Vhe-Grab, in which Echo Zahl
appeared in rain coat.
Mlltou Stoddard's stunt, “Hoot
Mon!” a Scotch chalk-talk, was one
of the highest numbers. He told
Scotch jokes, which few people un
derstood, but enjoyed much, and
drew pictures of faculty members,
Mexican athletes, etc.
The Freshman quartette, consist
ing of Larry Mann, Clyde Phillips,
Robert Langley and Ralph Ash re
ceived several encores. They sang in
perfect harmony and delighted the
“Vode and Veel” by Wallace Mar
tin and himself pushed ordinary pro
fessional vaudeville of fthe boards.
He drew howls of laughter from his
entrance to his exit.
Lloyd Bayly and Marjory Williams
were in the concluding number with
the picturesque “On the Old Mill
Race.” Seated in a canoe, Marjory
Williams singing and Bayly playing
a mandolin, they were drawn across
the stage. This was the most artis
tic and one of the most enjoyable
numbers of the program.
The committee responsible for the
huge success of the program was:
Milton StoddarJ, chairman; Bernice
Lucas, George Colton, Hannah Fyne,
Ralph Ash and Alice Hill. Through
their efforts the hour was staged
without a hitch.
The program is as follows:
