Prophets at Sea Trying to Pick
Winner of Contest
With Aggies at
BEZDEK SOUNDS WARNING
Coach Urges, “Don’t Get
Cocky;” Little Data to Give
Line on Chances.
When the Oregon team beat Cali
fornia in last Saturday's fray on Kincaid
Field, the sport dopesters of the north
west Teoeived another setback. The
■ sport prophets of this section of the
'country were almost unanimous in the
opinion that the southern university
would down its much lighter and less
experienced rival by a good margin, and
when Bezdek's warriors downed the Gol
den Bear, another instance of the un
certainty of the journalists’ pastime of
picking the winner before-lmnd, was
As a consequence of the surprise, the
forecasters are now in doubt as to the
Oegon-Aggie contest in Portland, on
Thanksgiving Day. Up till last week
the- Corvallis institution seemed to have
tbe advantage in that they had held
■their opponents to much smaller scores
than the varsity had, but now the dope j
is completely upset.
r Both Beat Multnomah
At the beginning of the season. Mult
nomah club of Portland, was downed to
the tune of 14 to 7 by the Varsity. A
few weeks later, the same aggregation
with a great deal more practice held the
■Aggie eleven, to a 6 to 0 score. Noth
ing definite was based on these two
contests. However, when Fipal’g out
fit sent the Idaho team home with the
short end of a 26 to 6 tally, the fore
casters immediately began to pick his
i team as the favorite for the Thauks
| giving classic, for Bezdek's warriors had
! only been able to score a two-touchdown
i margin on the eastern institution. On
top of this, the Aggie squad were able
to' hold Dietz’s Washington State crew
to a 6 to 0 score, whereas this aggre
gation had downed the smaller Eugene
eleven by the tremendous score of 26
to 3. All these things considered, the
so-called dopsters began believing that
the only thing that would win for the
Varsity would be that unconquerable
Oregon spirit, which prevailed to such
a great extent in last Saturday’s classic.
Realizing between the two institutions
for the last thirteen years, still the
writers thought that the O. A. C. eleven
had the odds for this game.
Now a Jumble of Scores
Now the entire matter is a jumble of
mixed scores. Pipal’s men were defeated
by the Bear Staters on the California
gridiron by a 14 to .1 score. Comprising
this battle with that on Kincaid Field
last Saturday, seems to give Oregon the
advantage for next Thursday. But in
taking into account this difference i*
must ho remembered that in that game,
the California eleven played upon their
native gridiron, and therefore had a
great advantage, as compared with their
playing on Kincaid Field against Bez
Reports were received from Corvallis
yesterday morning that “Darkhorse”
Newman, captain and fullback on the
Aggie eleven, will he unable to partici
pate in the fray. Whether or not this
is one of Pipsl’s “bear stories” is un
certain, but it may be taken for granted
that every possible regular will he pitted
against the Varsity. “Scooty” Dutton,
who last year was kept out because of
injuries, has been out with the squad
during the last few days, and is doing
bin utmost to get into condition for the
contest. No other serious injuries were
rnecived by the agriculturists, so the
team ns a whole will be in good condi

As for the Varsity, it may be said
that no really serious injuries were

though several of the men received slight
bruises. Dow Wilson has a badly swol
len thumb. "Brick” Leslie a rather sev

sore shoulder, but all three will un
doubtedly play in the game. Also, Stan
Anderson will he out again in a few
days, having recovered from * ease of
blood poisoning. So taking all things
into consideration, a real battle may
be expected in Portland, next Thursday.
Coach Bezdek held a light workout
with his men yesterday afternoon. Sig
nal practice took up most of the time,
which was shortened in order that the
men might celebrate their own victory
by dancing with the other students, in
the gymnasium. Bozdek's main wateii
word for the coming contest is "Don’t
Get Cocky.” and it was with this phase
^of the situation, that he dealt at length
in yesterday’s war talk to the men.
Team Surprises Coach
“The boys surely surprised me,' he
said, “but we must remember that the
big battle is yet before us.”
A more strenuous practice will be
held tomorrow, a scrimmage with the
freshmen, behind closed gates, being the
ran in thing. The practice from now on
will all he secret in order that an in
tensive training may be had, and all j
followers of Bezdek will be prohibited
from seeing the men work again until the '
Thanksgiving Day celebration.
BAND BOYS SEND CARDS
Norman Byrne and Lee Bourne Remem

Although former students of the Uni

country, or even in foreign lands, they
cnnr.ot forget their alma mater. Mr.
Albert Perfect, the director of the Uni
versity band, recently received cards
from former students who played in the
T niversity hand. One came from Nor

was front Lee M. Bowne, a member of
the former Mrd Regiment Oregon band,

ALUMNI COUNCIL MEETS

The Oregon Alumni Council held its
meeting last Saturday afternoon in John

chair. After a few minutes of greeting
the council was called to order and pro
ceeded to work.
Dean Walker was elected to fill the
vacancy existing in the council, succeed
ing Edward Bailey.
A motion was adopted to the effect
that the council arrange to send copies
of the Emerald to members of the Alum
ni who are now in the army, navy or ma

was appointed chairman of a committee
to provide a means for raising funds,
with which to send the Emeralds. It
was also decided to send Emeralds to

THE HONORS OF ATROCITY.
The Sultan of Turkey has graciously
conferred on the German Kaiser the
diamond star of the Iftichar Order, Tur
key’s highest war decoration, and the
Kaiser has decorated the Sultan with the
star and chain of the Ilohenzollern Or
der with diamonds.
The honors are even—the hero of the
Belgian and Lusitania murders honors
and is honored by the hero of Armenian
massacres. No one will question the
deserving of the honors or the respective
fitness of the mutual donors and recip
But to the intelligence and conscience
of the world a Liberty Loan button,
showing that an American citizen has
done his or her part in support of our .
government, is a vastly more honorable
decoration than the diamond orders of
the Sultan and the Kaiser, ft signifies
only a simple patriotic duty done; but
the diamond orders stand for colossal
infamy and murder.

Followin'? President Campbell, Couch

lie responded by urging all upperclass
men to repent to the new students the
old traditions and fireside stories of
the Oregon of the past.
Coaoh Gives Warning
‘I ant convinced,” Coach Bezdek said,
“that it does not take experience to
make a football player if the man has
tin- heart, and the mind and the deter- i
initiation to do. Saturday the boys i
played a game far better than I had
expected, but we do not want to be
overcome with overconfidence. The

Portland, on Thanksgiving is going to
be a hard game. The one place we.don’t
want to be beaten, is in Portland.”
Good old Bill Hayward was called
upon next, and after having given the
“famous lady” n few smiles, he turned
to the audience and responded with a
few well-directed words. Following Bill
Hayward, Bean Walker and members of
the team, wore called upon for short
talks. All present responded. Each

Informal Dance Hold
After the last man bad spoken, Presi
dent Campbell announced that an in
formal dance would lie held in the
gymnasium at 4 p. m. For this an
nouncement. President Campbell was
given a mighty ovation of cheers, after
which, the rally broke up at Yillard.
At 4 p. m. sharp, the rooters ouce
more gathered together, this time at
the gymnasium. With the hand playing
catchy airs, and lively step music, more
than 150 couples gave way to two
hours of informal dancing. A few min

Soldiers have to do their own mending,

On the occasion of a recent kit inspec

Medical Association, the recruits stood
lined tip ready for the officer, and the
officer had his bad temper all complete,
lie marched up and down the line, grim
ly eyeing each man’s bundle of needles
and soft soap, and then ho singled out
Private MneTootle ns the man who was
to receive his attentions.
• “Tooth-brush?” lie roared.
“Htn! You’rre all right, apparently,”
growled the officer. Then ho barked,
“Oh, ver.v well, thank you.” said the
recruit, amiably; “how’s yours?”
Ho Lost His Enthusiasm
The worried countenance of the bride
groom disturbed the best man. Tiptoe
ing up the aisle, lie whispered:
“What’s the matter, Jock? Tine yc
lost the ring?”
“No,” blurted out the unhappy Jock,
“the ring’s safe eno’. But, mon, I’ve
lost ma enthusiasm.”
