CONTRACT JUMPERS AND YELLOW JOURNALISM.
In another column the Emerald today presents an example
of the lengths to which some newspapers (?) will go in their at
tempts to kill space and attract attention to themselves by direct
falsification. The article appeared in the Seattle Post-Intel
ligencer and insinuates that Coach Bezdek will claim a tech
nical victory over Washington because of the defeat adminis
tered to California by the lemon-yellow warriors, last Saturday.
California walked on the northerners to the tune of 28 to 0
earlier in the season.
If Coach Bezdek, or anyone else at Oregon, was going to
claim a technical victory over Washington they would have done
so long ago, when athletic authorities at the Seattle school, with
out as much as asking “by your leave,” telegraphed that the Ore
gon-Washington game, scheduled for November 10, was cancel
led. They followed the telegram with a letter containing a few
weak-kneed excuses for calling off the game, but up to this time
have refused to answer any of the inquiries sent by Graduate
Manager Tiffany. Should Bezdek have claimed a victory over
Coach Hunt’s aggregation for their failure to appear on Novem
ber 10, he would have been justified by all the rules of fair play,
but he did not. Bezdek is not bothering with a bunch whose
word does not appear to be worth the paper upon which it is
What Oregon wants to know is whether or not Washington
is going to live up to the terms ol the contract between the two
schools and make good the loss resulting to Oregon through fail
ure of Washington to play the game as scheduled. Last season
a contract was signed between the two schools providing for the
game last year and one this year. Oregon fulfilled her part of
the bargain and paid Washington the money-agreed upon for
the game last year. This season the University stands to lose
$800 because of the failure of Washington to live up to her agree
ment. So far tin’ northerners have made no move to reimburse
the University for this loss.
Breaking contracts whenever they have felt so inclined_
and apparent defeat usually has inclined them—is an old trick
of Washington’s, but it is one that must stop if northwest and
Pacific coast intercollegiate conference agreements are to be
worth the paper they are written on. The students of the Uni
versity of Washington are, we believe, clean, fair minded college
men and women, but the practices of some of their officials is
questionable as regards fair play and good sportsmanship, to
say the least.
Turning,hack to the P-1 article, the foolishness of the whole
thing is so evident as to make the writer appear simple. Not
even taking the trouble to inform himself as to the actual facts
of the Cali torn ia-Oregon game, as is indicated by his ignorance'
ot thi’ tact that Richardson did not appear in the California line
up, the writer was evidently trying to fill a hole made by the
divorce court man to dig up a juicy scandal.
And speaking of football letter men in the national service,
Washington has no cause to lord a over anyone. Not only have!
all but one of Oregon’s letter men of last year enlisted, but also
there are but two of the 1910 lemon-yellow second team who are!
not with the colors.
California holds one record at least. After all the critics and
sport writers who saw Saturday’s game conceded that Oregon not
only outplayed, but also outfought and outgeneraled the blue and
gold eleven, the Daily Californian presents an entire column of
alibis. Previous to the game the Californian came out in bold
headlines ■ ■ i■1 dw !::e Enu raid ns c.-dime the li.'-ir-j "quRters.’’
The article in the Emerald upon which they based their state
ment was ai interview with members of the Marine team, who
said that if Oregon got the jump on California during the first!
ten minutes of play they had them beaten.
SENIORS DAW LOIS
FOR OIOE PARTNERS
Each Man Must Escort Two
Girls to Annual Event at
Sigma Nu House
Packwood Is Forced to Wield
HisVRazor for Fair Start
in Mustache Race.
The god of chance held court yester
day, at the senior class meeting, when
the partners for the annual lottery dance
to be held «t the Sigma Nu house, De
cember 7, were drawn. Due to the
scarcity of men, the girls will have to
ITooverize, and be content with one man
to two girls. The committee laid down
stTict rules, that each man must play
absolutely fair, and take an equal num
ber of dances with each of his ladies.
The first fifteen minutes of the meet
ing were given over to the question,
“to shave, or not to shave Fred Pack
wood,” who was accused by the tonsorial
committee of violating the conditions of
the mustache rule.
Tonsorial Operation Suggested
The whole mqjpL'e started, when the
suggestion arose that Packwood’s mis
placed eyebrow be removed from said
possessor’s upper lip. To this sugges
tion, which rapidly gained backing, the
object of the attention, naturally remon
strated. All present, however, were de
termined that said fringe of hair, skirt
ing said Mr. Packvvood’s upper lip, must
he removed from position. The proud
owner attempted to leap with his mous
tache through the second-story window
of Villard hall, but the barbers were too
fast and in a moment the vietam was
be:ng hauled back through f^e window,
by bis legs. Once more Pnekwood re
turned to his clamorous classmates, and
now realizing that to save his valued
moustache, was impossible, lie nride a
spirited appeal to the sympathies of his
fellow mates, and asked that he be al
lowed to do the act of parting with his
moustache himself. After ^jue consider- .
ation, Packwood’s appeal was granted,
and he returned to the campus that ]
afternoon minus his decoration.
After the excitement of the above
episode had disappeared, the class pro
ceeded with their business.

War Knitting Cuts Down
Reading Among Women.
On!y Skilled Workers Can Make
Socks and Imbibe Galsworlhy
University women this year are knit

drs. M. h'. McClain, head of the library

t decrease in the demand for books.
‘It takes a skilled knitter to read
kalsworthy, and make a sock at the

hat reason the girls read periodically,
ilmost entirely, and the. requests for
>ooks from women number far less

The college as a whole, according to
drs. McClain, reads less than formerly.
