Tossers Will Don Warmup
Shirts and Remove Kinks in
Gym Before Going on Field.
PROSPECTS ARE ABOUT NIHIL
Five Veterans and no Frosh,
Make Dopetsers Wonder
„ Who’s Who.
Varsity baseball candidates, it’s high
time you were lifting the lid off that
old trunk and pulling out your milldewed
warmup shirt, your priceless fielder’s
glove with the hole in the center, your
spiked shoes, and your trusty 'bludgeon.
Coach Bezdek and Captain Anse Cor
nell have issued the first call for prac
tice next Monday night at 4 p. m.
Weather permitting, the squad will in
dulge in light hitting ractice and easy
warmups on the sodded turf. Should the
Tain interfere, the gymnasium will be
the mecca for the balltossers. Fitchers
and catchers will loosen their arms un
der the watchful eyes of Bez, and the in
fieldeTS and outfieldeTs will be put to
work at sliding, starting and sprinting.
“I want to get the boys’ arms and
muscles limbered up before going out
doors,” said Coach Bezdek. “When we
get a good day we can have a game with
out subjecting the boys to charley
horses and strains.”
Prospects—“Well, we haven't any,” to
use Bez’s words. Captain Cornell, Nel
son, Tuerck, Sheehy, and Grebe are the
veterans around which a team must be
welded. Grebe is hobbling about on a
cane, after a three-months’ siege of ery
sipelas. He expects to be in condition
within a month to hold down his second
From all appearances, Bezdek expects
to shift his men from one position to an
other to find out “who’s who.” Lack of
numbers and good material makes this a
necessity. Every fellow who has worn a
pair of baseball shoes will have a chance
to disport in the calcium.
Bob McMurray Urges That
Shall the 1917 Oregana be a pamphlet
or a book that Oregon can be proud of?
“It is up to the students to settle this
question,” says Bob McMurray, manager
of the Oregana. “A good book will be put
out if a large number of students sub
scribe. The staff can and will produce
a book that Oregon can well be proud
of if they get the proper support. It is
necessary to know definitely how many
students will subscribe so that the staff
will know how much money is available
for the book.”
University Is Judged by Oregana.
A much better book could have been
published last year if the staff ctnld
have known how much to put into it, ac
cording to McMurray. “The University
is judged by the Oregana,” continued the
manager. “It is widely distributed on the
coast and so should be the best that it
is possible for Oregon to produce "
The Oregana will cost $2.50 until May
1 and after that the price will be $T
May Pay by Installments.
Payments may be made on the in
stallment plan. The first payment of
$1.50 should be paid now and the rest
can be paid later. The students now sell
ing Oreganas are: George Colton, Em
mett Rathbun, Walter Hennon, Harold
Tregilgas, Harold Maison. Joseph D *nn.
Roger Jayne and H. McCulloek. They
are also on sale at the Y. M. C. A.
$10 cash prize will be given to the man
who gets the largest number of sub
scribers. The men who make second and
third places will get free Oreganas. The
books will be delivered about three
weeks before commencement. The Ore
gana is a University publication this
year and not entirely 'under the man
agement of the junior class as hereto
fore. A. R. Tiffany, graduate manager
of the student body will not let th?
boo'k go in the hole this year so the
money must come in immediately if the
Oregana is to be a success.

SQCGER GAMES OFF,
Failure to Practice Faithfully
Causes Cancellation, as
CAPTAIN JIMMY SHE EH Y
ere will be no soccer games with
Multnomah club this year.
Coach Colin V. Dyment gave out the
above news after last night’s practice,
hich four veterans and two recruits
had assembled. The varsity had two
tentative dates with the clubmen for
games on February 19, and 26. Both
of these contests will be cancelled and
soccer football will rest until next Sep
The fate of the association game has
beer on the 'coals for over a month. The
players, and especially the old men, dis
played a decided lack of interest from the
outset. Injuries, inclement weather,
lack of pep, and a general careless at
titude has made the cancelling of the
Men Fail to Practice.
Spellman, varsity fullback for two
seasons, did not turn out all ear, owing to
injuries received in- football, coupled
with the pressure of his studies. Bill
Tuerck, the mainstay of the forward
line, appeared in suit on two different
occasions. Bill broke down his instep
early in the football campaign, which
left his feet in a weakened condition. He
likes the game, but always dislikes
practice. Some ‘miscreant” stole Rath
bun’s shoes and jersey, which he said
left him in a bad fix for proper soccer
wearing apparel. Campbell and Pearson
participated regularly, when not other
wise engaged. Ralston, Kennon, and
Fox showed up far too few times to get
Different Plan Next Year.
“I have grown tired of coaxing and
nursing the soccer squad along,” said
Coach Dyment “We have had two full
teams out for practice games only
since we started practice. The
men knew they had their places
cinched and expected to play the games
without working. Some of them
thought we were bluffing when we
threatened to call the games off. I hope
this will be a lesson.”
“It is against every custom to play
with so little preparation. East year
we tied Multnomah twice. The club is
after revenge this year and would beat
us 5 or 6 to 0, if these winless veterans
played them now. It would be unfair to
University athletics to oppose them with
a misfit outfit."
A different schedule will be Inaugu
rated next year. The season will last
two months and a half at most, and the
games will be rushed through. This
arrangement will do away with weather
ponements and indefiniteness of
er years, and should arouse far
greater interest in the pastime.

FIFTY-FOUR OUT FOR TRACK
Trainer “Bill” Hayward’s Initial Call
Brings Out Long List.
Fifty-four men turned out yesterday in
response to Coach “Bill” Hayward’s call
for a meeting of the track candidates, in
the gymnasium at 4 o’clock. With only
a couple of the old men hack, Oregon’s
chances do not appear very promising.
The coach said that he could only fig
ure 18 points for the University in any
of the meets scheduled for this season.
A number of the: men who turned out
are freshmen who, under the new ruling
that fears first year men from Varsity
athletics are not eligible for this year’s

The banquet cos^s the girls only forty

waitresses. The decorations are in light
and dark blue, the jubilre colors.
“There is to be a fine stunt,” says
Miss Gillies. “We are keeping the plan

FEE'S SUHIS IS SAFE
SAYS “BILL” HAYWARD
Rumor That “Outlaws” Would
Be Declared Professionals Is
Scored by Track Trainer.
That the University of Oregon dor*
not need to worry over the story thaf
appeared in the Oregon Sunday Journal
concerning the probability of Chester
Fee being barred from amateur athlet
ics, is the opinion of "Bill” Hayward,
physical director and track conch of the
Action Is Not Justified
“I don’t think that the Pacific North
west Association is justified in kick
ing Fee out of amateur athletics and I
don’t think that it will,” Baid Hayward
yesterday. “And if the P. N. A. does
bar Fee from competing within the ns
sociation’s jurisdiction, that will not
stop him from entering intercollegiate
meets. In the first place, any of the
Northwest colleges have too high a sense
of honor to allow such a hair-splitting
technicality to bar a competitor. In the
second place, rule SfT of the Pacific
Northwest Intercollegiate conference is
as follows: ‘Playing professional teams
—it shall not be considered a violation
of an amateur rule for a conference
team to compete against a professional
team, provided that the Faculty Ath
letic committee of the institution sanc
tion such game or contest.’
Gams Was Sanotloned
“The committee sanctioned the game
played by the “Outlaws” against the
Roseburg high school on January 20.
Though the Bigbec brothers, who were
signed up with the Beavers at that time,
played in the game along with Fee an I
others, that does not make Fee a pro
fessional because the Bigbee boys hid
never received money for playing.
“It is a regular practice of profession
al organizations to sign up men while
they are in college. In that way they
are able to keep the man from being
taken by other teams. This makes it
possible for a man to stay in college and
compete in intercollegiate games and at
the same time assures the professional
organization of their men.”

the benefit of the new students who have
just entered the University and have not
become well acquainted with old students.
Bill and Bez Will Talk.
President Campbell will lecture on Mt.
