'MSKEIILL MEN ARE
OUT FOR PRACTICE
NEW AND OLD MEN ANTICIPATE
A HARD RUN FOR PO
WALCOTT RETURNS FEBRUARY
1915 Captain Has Not Been Elected
Yet No Arrangements Made
Basketball fiends are becoming
more numerous on the gymnasium
floor as the mid-year sporting sea
son draws near. Some of these men
are “new,” others are “old.”
Wheeler is the only one of last
year’s veterans to register so far. He
is at home nearly every afternoon on
the gym floor, and will probably
make a place for himself in one of the
guard positions, where he played part
of the time last year. Wolcott will
be back in February and will bid
for one of the forward berths. It is
not known yet definitely whether Koch
will be back in the game or not.
Of the new men who will answer
the call for recruits, there are many,
but their calibre is yet only a mat
ter of speculation. Sharpe, who
^ played forward on the Multnomah
Club team last year is here, and will
likely put on a light harness after
the football season is over. Morton,
a six-footer, has a prep record as a
center. He hails from Estacada.
Other men who will try for places
on Bezdek’s flying squadron are:
Hampton, Fee, L. Bigbee, Vosper, C.
Bigbee and Furney.
Those who left last year via. the
graduation route are: Rice, Brad
shaw, Fenton and Sims. It is the
holes left by these men that will have
to be filled. It is too early yet to
predict results for the coming sea
son. No games have yet been sched
uled. At present there is no captain
and it is not known yet when elec
tion will take place.
SEND-OFF BEST EVER
SNYS JOHNNY PARSONS
Crowd of 300 Bids the Team God
Speed As Train Pulls Out m
for the North
“One of the best send-offs we ever
had,” remarked Captain Johnny Par
sons, as he swung aboard the special
car for the Seattle game. Despite
the downpour of rain, over 300 enthu
t siastic students and friends of the
team were out to bid the departing
team “so long.” Ernie Vosper direct
ed the songs and led the yells from
the vantage point of a baggage truck.
Yells for individual members of the
team were called for and given above
the blare of the trombones and the
hiss of escaping steam.’ Led by a
few members of the Glee Club, the
football song and the Toast to Ore
gon were sung with much force and
few discords. Much advice such as
“Don’t take any wooden nickels” and
“Don’t lose my rain coat” were hurled
at the departing heroes as, amid the
classic strains of “Boola, Boola,” and
a last “Oski Wow, Wow,” the con
ductor’s lantern flashed and the long
^ train started for the north.
SARD BURSTS INTO RHYME
TO ADVERTISE LOSS OF BOOK
Stoddard Bemoans Departed Notes,
While Emerald Detective Agency
Locates Missing Volume
By Milton A. Stoddard.
My note book’s gone;
I’m sad and wan,
As constantly and sweepirigly I think
upon its loss.
I search for it by day; I advertise and
But it comes not back to me, save in
sleep when it I see as I toss
In dreams and feel it like a comrade
by my side,
Who will help me pass my courses
and in whom I can cofide.
My note book’s gone;
I’m sad and wan.
All the notes I took with care,
All have vanished—what despair!
If I fail in all my courses, it’s no fault
of mine, O Prof.,
For I cannot, cannot study since my
note book wandered off,
And I fear I’ll be well posted, more
than any other Soph.
The addresses of my friends, written
in dear note book mine,
Are lost, and now they wonder why I
never write a line.
And the helpful old quotations writ
ten there to give me hope,
Are gone, and now I’m sordid and
in mental darkness grope.
And is gone her lovely photo nasted
’neath the cover
By the fingers of this fool, or perhaps
All the things I held most dear,
All my ideas of the year,
Were written on loose-leaf pages that
If you don’t want me to fail,
Won’t you send it through the mail?
Or I’ll flunk in all my courses—oh, I’m
sad, and oh, so wan!
NOTE—Touched by Mr. Stoddard’s
anguish, and spurred on by our own
indomitable zeal when on the scent of
a mystery, the Emerald this morning
dispatched a special sleuth to recov
er the priceless volume. As a result
of our investigation, we would advise
Mr. Stoddard to look in one of the
pigeon-holes in the journalism room.

The Dramatic Club tryouts will be
held November 19 at 7:00 o’clock, in
Villard Hall. Contrary to previous
custom, the selection of the material
to be delivered will be left entirely
to the speaker. Twelve members of
the club will be selected at this time.
The tryouts are under the supervis
ion of Bert Jerard.
Officers were elected and the club
organized for the year at a meeting
held last Thursday night. The result
of the balloting was: President, Mau
rice Hill; Vice President, Gertrude
Taylor; Secretary, Marjorie Cogswell;
Treasurer, Bert Jerard; and Manager,
Carl Naylor. Dr. Ralph C. Bennett
was also selected as coach.
The club has decided to stage two
or three plays during the year. These
will be of a light and modern sort,
rather than the heavy and conven
Though the selections to be deliv
ered in the tryouts are entirely op
tional with the candidates, the offi
cers of the club suggest that an at
tempt be made to secure parts con
taining both comedy and deeper feel
ing. In case those wishing to try our
have no preference as to what they
deliver, a list of suitable selections
will be posted in Villard Hall.
President Hill plans to have the
club occupy a strong and definite po
sition on the campus this year, and
expects that some sort of insignia
will later be given to the members.
The interest shown in the club thus
far has been very keen, and if this
may be taken as a fair indication, a
splendid year may be anticipated.
STUDENTS AT ANN ARBOR
HAVE FREE VAUDEVILLE
The student council at the Univer
sity of Michigan has arranged with
the management of the Maynard
street vaudeville house to have three
free shows during the University
year. These will come on the even
ings of November 6 and 13, after
Pennsylvania and Cornell “pep” meet
ings, and on Cap Night in the spring.
The council took the stand last night
that it would positively not permit
any rushes on any other nights dur
ing the year.
SENIOR FALLS INTO TOILS
WHILE ROAMING IN GLOAMING
Y. M. C. A. Worker Attends Down
Town Social Function and is Al
most Arrested for Bootlegging
The vigilance of the Eugene police
force in keeping the lid clamped down
on our model city caused J. F. T. Gal
loway, a prominent Senior and Y. M.
C. A. worker, several uncomfortable
moments Thursday evening.
Early in the evening a zealous cop
had located a flask of liquor cached
away in an alley off Seventh street.
Scenting a violation of the “dry" law,
the local minion of justice lay in wait
against the time when the owner of
the bug juice should return.
Meanwhile, Galloway was enjoying
a pleasurable evening “tripping the
light fantastic” in a nearby hall de
voted to the vexation of Dean Straub.
Repairing to the gentlemen’s lobby,
he was almost overcome by the fumes
of nicotine arising from the assem
bled beaux. Being an abstainer from
the filthy weed, the Dorm oracle de
cided to seek the pure outdoor air.
Accordingly he began a noctambu
lation down the alley, which lay all
peaceful and bathed in the shimmering
luster of the moon.
“You’re pinched,” announced a stem
voice, while a still sterner grip al
most dislocated his shoulder.
“What for?” queried the startled
“Bootlegging,” was the laconic an
It took Galloway’s best persuasive
powers to convince the sleuth that he
was innocent and to relax the vise
like grip on his shoulder.
BUILDING MAY NOT BE
COMPLETED UNTIL JUNE
Contractors Have Until June, 1915,
and Imply that it Will Require
All that Time
The contractors of the new Ad
ministration Building implied in a
statement today that the building
would not be ready for use this year.
The contract gives the engineers un
til the first of June, 1915, to com
plete their work, and they think that
it wil take the most of the time o
get the building ready.
During the last week the forms
for the concrete of the first floor
walls were made and the concrete
placed in, them. The contractors are
now making the forms for the sec
ond floor walls. The concrete is be
ing reinforced with steel rods and
wire. The braces for the roof are
also here, and when they are put
into place the roof of the new build
ing will be stronger than the first
floor of the Library building in Port
At present theer are about 25 men
at work on the building. More men
than this would be necessary if the
lumber for the braces was finished
here, but all the material used comes
all ready to be put into place. Each
piece is numbered, and in this way ev
ery piece of material is put in the
right place without any trouble.
The new structure will be finished
on the outside with brick and terra
cotta. The inside will be finished

HILLER IS OUTFURTEO
Cornell Replaces Huntington in Final
Quarter, but is Injured and
Replaced by Sharpe
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 14—(By
Harry Kuck)—Oregon played far be
low real form today and was beaten
by Washington 10 to 0. Washington
excelled in every department except
punting. The field was fast and five
thousand spectators viewed a rather
slow game. The thriller was fur
nished in the third quarter, when Mil
ler passed 20 yards to Hunt, who
raced across the line for a touchdown.
The Oregon team expected a run
around right end. Washington’s
other score came after 10 minutes
of play in the first quarter. Smith
executed a pretty 35-yard place kick.
Huntington, Bryant, Wefst and Beck
ett starred for Oregon. Miller, Hunt,
Smith, Leader and Shiel were the Pur
pie and Gold luminaries.
Beckett and Hunting ion averaged
37 yards and Miller 35 yards in the
kicking; neither team was efficient in
forward passing. Oregon tried nine
and only completed one. Washington
attempted four and one resulting in
her touchdown was the only one suc
cessful. Both teams suffered equally
by penalties. Oregon was set back
60 yards and Washington 76 yards.
The game was not of the startling va.
riety and was characterized by much
kicking and injuries.
Risley, Parsons, Huntington, Cor
nell, Cook and Beckett were all hurt.
Oregon made yardage but once in the
first half, while Washington gained
the distance seven times. Washington
backs made most of their gains
through Oregon’s left side, which ap
Cornell replaced Huntington in the
third quarter, but was soon taken
out on account of his knee. Sharpe
took up the reins. The fourth quar
ter was Oregon’s. Huntington and
Bryant made 25-yard runs.
Near the end of the game Parsons
tried a place kick from the 20-yard
j line, but it failed.
Washington was drilled till she
| thought defeat certain and the under
: dog spirit was a winner. Hunt was
S the real star of the game. Oregon
! failed to pierce the enemy’s line and
j did not seem able to get started.
Washington deserved to win today.
Smith, Washington quarterback,
kicks goal from 35-yard line in first
five minutes of play. Oregon seems
unable to gain through the Wash
ington line.® Both^ teams punt fre
