Oil SOCCER SESSION
1-0 Victory of Multnomah
Closes Season; Only De
feat of Year.
Juniors and Seniors Will Clash
Saturday to Settle Inter
Taps wan sounded on the 1915 soccer
season with the 1-0 defeat by Multnomah
in Portland December 2.‘5. Besides mark
ing the end of the game for the year, it
closed Coach Colin V. Dyment’s con
nection with soccer at the University.
Incidentally, it was the first time the
coach e> <u saw his team come off the
field with the small end of the score.
This season was undoubtedly the most
successful the English game has ever
had. Some thirty-five men turned out at
the beginning of the year and most of
them stayed until the finish. The schedule
of four games—two with O. A. C. and
two with Multnomah—provided an in
centive to keep up a lively interest.
Coach Dyment and Captain Campbell
worked hard with the squad to build up
a winning combination. The Aggies were
met and whitewashed both here and in
their own lm.lliwiek. O. A. C. put out a
team for the first time but made a credit
able showing. With the experience they
gained this year, they ought to furnish
strong opposition in the future.
After tieing the Multnomah clubmen
on Thanksgiving day the varsity finally
broke into the lost column on the Port
land field. Handicapped by having a
couple of men out of the game, the
lemon-yellow staved off a score until late
in the second half. The two big Multno
mah backs kept the ball continually in
Oregon territory but the defense manag
ed to keep the goal clear. With only six
minutes to play. Referee Billington call
ed a foul on one of the Oregon halves
and gave the clubmen a free kick.
The locals thought it was a penalty
and failed to block the kick. Sammons
made a terrific boot and the wet, ball
slipped past Kennon fo- the single tally
of the game. Multnomah deserved to
win, however, as her team clearly out
Vet Coach Dyment was very much
pleased with the work of the players.
"The season was very satisfactory,” he
said, ‘‘the boys played very nicely and
the one game we lost we had no right
winning. We did well to hold the score
as low as it was. Soccer is firmly es

The seniors have accepted the chal

ship and a game is set for Saturday at
1:30 on Kincaid field.
The fourth-year men are depending
on Tuerck, Campbell, Huston, Scaiefe,

bring home the victory while the jun

uphold the honor of the class.

Correspondence Study Classes
Almost Doubled Since 1913.
72 High Schools in Debating
League Include Practically
Every School in State. j
The rapid growth of the extension de
partment of the University since its or
ganization in 10OS is shown in a report
recently compiled by that department.
The earliest form in which the work of
carrying the-University’s work over the
state was by means of correspondence
study. In the fall of 1013 the extension
classes were authorized and their growth
since that time has been dependent only
upon the finances at the disposal of the
department. The largest number of
classes are held in Portland, but some
are meeting in Baker, Salem, Eugene and
the Coos Bay district
Among the most striking features of
the report are the following stitistics
showing the strides taken by the depart
ment. The enrollment in the correspond
ence study work has grown from 3(11
students in 1913, including at that time
those in extension classes to 975 on Oct
ober 1, of this year. The extension
classes which were first organized in
1913, and had 500 members in 1914. now
reach 1094 persons in the state, while
the lectures of the extension classes are ,
now attended by 74,000 (estimated) as
against an attendance of 03,300 in 1914.
Pictorial instruction by means of edu
cational moving pictures and slides has
been carried on in a limited form. Mo
tion pictures were used this year for the
first time and 24 exhibitions were at
tended by 5,500 persons. The lantern
slide method was used last year in three
exhibitions before 575 persons, while this
year 73 exhibitions were held before
The work of the Oregon high school
debate league which was organized in
p.H>7 also conies under the jurisdiction
of the extension department. When or
ganized by Prof, l'e Coil in that year,
the league had a membership of 2S. This
year practically every high school of im
portance in the state outside of Port
land is included in the 72 schools hold
Reading certificates are granted by
the department to the teachers of the
state who do professional reading and re
search work under the supervision of the
extension authorities. This work was be
gun in 1914 and during 1914-15. 3400
certificates were granted. East year
47s3 certificates were issued.
An election to determine the most pop
ular "nut” on the campus was recently
held at Ohio State Vniversity. AU nom
inations were required to have at least
ten signers. The whole campus voted

U. Bid MIKES HIT
Outside Towns and Cities Ap
preciate Music of Organization
Mr. Perfect Says Heavier Music
Will Be Taken Up After
The University band went to UresweLl
December 13 and made a very credit
able showing according to a clipping
from the Creswell Chronicle which says:
“With one of the best selected programs
of band music and with one of the best
organizations of its kind ever appearing
in Creswell, the University of Oregon
band greeted a fair-sized audience ui
the Etna opera house last night.”
This and other clippings from papers
in cities and towns throughout the state
show how the band is appreciated where
ever it has appeared, says Mr. Perfect,
director of the band.
After examinations the band will have
more time to devote to heavier music.
Mr. Perfect has no trips in view at pres
ent but a concert is planned to be given
in Villard after examinations.
Fee’s Absence Wiil Be Felt;
New Men Must Be
Chance Muirhead and Payne
May Return Brightens
While it is still some three months
before track season opens, most of the
old men are keeping in condition by
working out over the cross country
course. Although there is no telling
what may happen from now until spring,
present indications are that Oregon will
have a team fully up to the standard of
last year's championship aggregation.
Hill Hayward’s big problem will he
to develop men to take care of the events
Chet Fee used to handle. Chet was a
sure winner in the javelin and pole vault
and was good for points in practically all
the rest of the field events and the
hurdles. "Moose” Muirhead, if he
comes !>ack. will bear the brunt of the
work. He and Chet made almost enough
points between them last season to win
one of the meets.
Besides Fee, Bostw'ek and I’eacock
are the only two letter men of last
year not in college. Mose Payne, the
diminutive two-miler who broke the
Northwest record in the conference meet
at Corvallis in 3915, is expected by his
fraternity brothers to be back the second
semester. If "Jackrabbit” returns, Bost
wick’s loss will not be felt.
tloreciky, WesterfMd and Brock are
the sprinters of last year's squad on
deck. Wilson in the 440 and Captain
Nelson in the half-mile are certainties.
Bidding ought to give a good account of
himself in the mile. In the cross country
run with O. A. C . he showed an improve
ment over his previous work. Case. Han
sen. and Atkinson are other strong con
tenders for the long run.
With the exception of Bartlett, weight
men are lacking. He can compete with
any of them in the d:seus. giving Cole
