Victory Appears More Likely
Because of Triumph Over
California; 0. A. C. Men
BRUINS HAVE MANY ALIBIS
Say Oregon Could Not Rush
Ball More Than Fifty Yards
With one seemingly impossible feat
Achieved, the Varsity is working over
time to accomplish another—namely, to
nail the Beaver skin up with the Bear
hide, on Thanksgiving Day. in Portland.
Before the California triumph, the out
look for the Aggie game was blue in
deed, bu now ‘victory’ is not such a dis
tant object as it appeared.
The players themselves are filled to
the brim with “pep” and eagerness to
meet the Corvallis eleven. They all
realize that the orange and black has a
strong team, and one which would per
haps give California a closer game than
when it was beaten by the southerners
14—3, a month or so ago. That O. A. C.
has a powerful team, is attested by the
close game they gave W. S. C., two
weeks ago, when they held the Staters
down to one touchdown, and that was
really a fluke.
Same Lineup to Be Used
Oregon’s unexpected victory was a
disagreeable awakening for Aggie fans,
and already Pipal’s camp is sending out
doleful stories about weakness and in
juries to the Corvallis warriors, which
may or may not be exaggerated. New
man. the star fullback, is laid on the
shelf on account of a wrenched shoulder
in the Washington game. For this
place, Itity may be chose n, although a
few days ago, reports stated that

Frosh Lose First Contest of In
terclass Series by Two
Both Teams Spring New Stuff
on Fooball Fans, But
Amid the cheers of more than a hun
dred enthusiastic fans, the sophomore
class football team ran rampant on
Tuesday afternoon, and defeated the
frosh warriors, 12 to 0. The game was
cut short by Dean Walker, manager of
interclass athletics, because of the lack
of condition of both elevens.
After five minutes of puffing and
■panting, the second-year men put across
the first score, when Lind registered a
touchdown on an off-tackle play. The
sophomores had taken the ball straight
down the gridiron from the kickoff,
without losing it to the babes at all.
Banks failed to kick goal, and the fresh
men chose to kick.
“Hams” Kicks High One
Hammersley, kicking for the wearers
of the green, surprised all the onlookers
when he booted the pigskin over the
goal line on the kickoff. The bail was
placed on the twenty-yard line and the
winners began an offensive much strong
er than ever. I’arr. at half, was effec

his eleven huskies, returned on the field.
to continue the fray. Coach Hammers

later. The latte" again chose to kick
off but were offside, and after a five

[ Dean Straub asked the students to
refrain from greeting members of the
faculty by the unconventional, “hello,”
and suggested that they substitute, “good

FRATERNITIES MUST PAY
TEN PER CENT WAR TAX
Collector of Customs Holds Organiza
tions Not Necessary Col
According to a ruling of Milton A.
Miller, collector of internal revenue for
this district, college fraternities are li
able to a 10 per cent war tax. Under a
recent national ruling, social organiza
tions are to be taxed a war assessment.
Mr. Miller in his ruling holds that col
lege fraternities and other social organ
izations are not necessary adjuncts to
the college and that they would be class
ed under the title of social organizations.
Mr. Miller sets forth that all frater
nities and other organizations at Corval
lis whose initiation fees and dues are
more than $12 a year are subject to a
war tax of ten per cent. Since Eugene
is in the same district as Corvallis it is
presumed that if fraternities at O. A.
C. are taxed, fraternities at Oregon will
be taxed a like rate.

OREGON'S WALNUT TRADE
LIMITED ONLY BY OUTPUT
Fred Groner, Prominent Grower, Says
Home Product Is Superior
Oregon-grown walnuts were served to
the students in the class in commercial
and industrial survey, of the School of
Commerce, on Wednesday afternoon.
Fred Groner, of Hillsboro, one of the
prominent walnut growers of the state,
addressed the class on the commercial
possibilities of the walnut industry in
this state, and closed his speech with
a distribution of several pounds of
choice nuts, produced in his own orchard.
Mr. Groner predicted a substantial
growth of the industry in this state,
and declared that the market is limited
only by the ability of Oregon growers
to produce. Oregon never has lost a
crop for lack of a market, he added, and
described the superiority of the Oregon
nut over the California product, and the
walnuts grown in France, Italy and
other European countries. The industry
will attain its best results, ho said, if
the farmers generally, take to growing
walnuts in connection with their other
Walnut trees should line the highways
of the state, he asserted, and should lie
planted as shade trees in place of
inuples, as they are equally ornamental.
Walnuts produce best, he declared,
when grafted. An intensive study by
Mr. Groner and his associates, has re
vealed that a grafted tree will yield
50 per cent more nuts than a seedling.
Mr. Groner is a former student of
the University, having atended 25
years ago. This was his second visit
j to the campus since then. Among his
j old friends still here, are Dean Straub
I and Professor Young.

The now order comes as a reversal
to the ruling made earlier in the season
by Mr. Miller, that no war tax would
be made on football tickets, as the
money went to the student, body and to
the University. Mr. Miller, in making
the order, says that he is acting upon
the advice of the treasury department

If the tax is imposed, it will cost
the students approximately $200 to

Saturday's Game With 0. A. C.
Closes ’Varsity Schedule.
Team Handicapped by Loss of
Regular Coach and Lack
With the finish of Saturday's soccer
game with (>. A. (ho Varsity soccer
season came to an end, so far as outside
games are concerned. In ten-lass games
are seheduled to start immediately after
the Thanksgiving vueation.
'l'lie season this year was not so great
a success as it might have been if the
team had been able to obtain the ser
vices of a conch at the start of the year.
Father James Moran came out as often
as he could to help out, but he could
not spare enough time to make his work
as effective as might have been.
Oyment Loss Felt
The team felt keenly the loss of I*rof.
Colvin V. Dyment, former professor of
Journalism here, and now head of that
department at the University of Wash
ington,* who was responsible for intro
ducing the game at Oregon, and who
fostered its growth during his stay
here. During that time the Varsity lost
but one game, tied five, and won two.
This season’s record shows two games
chalked up on the ■ rong side of the
O. A. O. got revenge for the two
whitewash victories of Oregon last year,
and retaliated by giving' the lemon-yel
low a similar dose. The scores in
1910 were, 4 0. and 2 0. This year
t). A. C. won by the scores of 2 0, and
1—0. In both games the Oregon for
ward line could not seem to get going.
Time and again, the Varsity would rush
the ball to the Aggies' goal, only to have
the last shot go wide of the posts.
Few Veterans Out
The team was composed for the most
part of men who were new at the game,
twenty-five candidates answered the
first call for practice, but scarcely more
than 10 or 15 turned out every night.
Of tiiis number, but six had played on
the Varsity team before; Sheohy, Fox,
■ Kelleher, Fearson, Hartley and Hasel
The rest knew little or nothing about
soccer. With only two weeks of prac
:ice, a team was sent against O. A. C„
; and Saturday the season came to a
| gloomy conclusion.
) Although both games were lost, many
| men on the team gained knowledge
1 which will be of use to them next year
and together with material developed in
the interclass games, enough players
ought to be on hand next year to give
the game a good impetus.
