OREGON STARS LEAD GREAT HI TEAMS Johnny Beckett’s Marines and Dudley Clark’s Ambulance Corps Men to Clash New Year’s Day. Western Players on Both Sides at Pasadena; Hard Fight Is Expected. Two Oregon stars will lead the elevens representing the East and West, which will clash at Pasadena, Cal., on New Year's Day, as the big athletic event of the annual festival of roses. The western team will be the eleven of the United States Marine CoTps, stationed at Mare Island, and the eastern that of the ambulance unit at Allentown, Pa. Johnny Beckett is the marines’ captain, while the ambulance men are led by Dudley Clark, famed in Oregon gridiron history. Clark Handles Ambulance Men The Allentown squad, not to be out done by the “Soldiers of the Sea,” also have a number of western stars in their lineup. The “Dead Wagon Crew" is being coached by First Lieutenant Dudley Clark, who for several years was the mainstay of the Oregon team, and who afterwards played for several seasons with the Multnomah Amateur Athletic club team, of Portland. Clark has just received his commission as a full-fledged first lieutenant, having been serving as acting lieutenant since he took over the Ambulance Corps team. One of the shining lights in the “Stretcher Carriers” team is “Tuffy” Conn, the sensational Oregon Agricul tural college halfback, of last season, whose run of 100 yards in the O. A. C. Nebraska game scored the only points registered by the Aggies. Marines Have Great Array The marines have undoubtedly the greatest array of Northwest football stars ever gathered together, and the game will be watched by all followers of the gridiron in the country, as it will bear on the old question of whether or not the gridiron warriors of the West are in the same class as those of the East. tso flar tnis seasrm the Allentown team has lost but one game, that going to the Georgetown University, at Wash ington. D. C., Thanksgiving Day. More than 1000 members of the company made the trip from Allentown in aTmv motor trucks. It required 102 trucks to haul them alb and only enough men were left for guard duty. From all angles that a dopester can look at this game, it looks as though it was going to be very close, but ail Oregon students are back of the marines, and are pulling hard for Beckett’s team to uphold once more the football honor of the West. WELLS CAPTAIN. At a meeting of the letter men after the game with the University of South ern California, “Dummy” ' Wells was chosen captain of the California foot ball team for 1019.

Varsity Five to Be Picked Largely From Stars in Doughnut Series. With Northwest and Const football retired to the shelf, for the customary winter rest, those of the sport world Inow turn their attention to basketball. Oregon’s tentative schedule, draw at the meeting of the Pacific Coast Inter-col legiate Athletic conference, in San Fran cisco, early this week, provides for the season to open with an Oregon-O. A. C. game, at Corvallis, January 11. Oregon will start the season without jia single letter man on her squad, and I will be practically up against it, accord ing to Coach Hayward. The inter-class ‘.and doughnut series will be watched care 1 fully, he says, and the men for the new I Varsity team, drawn largely from the ' illuminaries of these games. A series 1 of practice games, between the different teams, composing the doughnut league j will be played next week, meanwhile Varsity practice will continue without any definite squad being selected for special work. * Spring Sports Dismissed At a meeting of the athletic directors of the colleges of the Pacific Coast, held at San Francisco last week, the subject of basketball and spring sports was discussed. Owing to the heavy ex pense of taking basketball teams on | tours, and to the uncertainty of finance the conference decided that the Uni versity of California will not send a basketball team north, nor will any northern university send tteir team into California’s territory. This agreement means that basketball fans of the north west, will not be able to see the Uni versity of California squad in comparison with northwest teams. The schedule arranged hy the confer ence provides that Oregon play nine games. Five of these games will be (Continued on page four) STUDENTS SHOULD WAIT FOR DRAFT, SAYS BOWEN Duty Lies in Securing Training for Con scripted Army Is Opinion of Commandant. “A man shows more patriotism hy keeping at his studies until the country calls him. than by enlisting now,” said Colonel William H. C. Bowen, who is in charge of the military drill Wednesday | “Orders from the war department are specific and should he obeyed by every student, unless there are some other par-' tieular circumstances in his case. If I had a son. I should certainly make him stay in college and get all the training available.” vojouei nnwen sain mat conditions have changed since six months ago, when practically everyone who enlisted, and [ had had some military raining was made a corporal or sergeant. No more such chances will be offered until the [ next draft army is called. Then the training that will be received in the military drill here, will practically insure a non-commission office in the drufi army. These non-commissioned officers will be directly in line for commissions and appointments to the officers’ train ing camps. Tnless the University men stay in college and get trained, the army will suffer from a shortage of educated men for officers, in the next draft armies, de clared the colonel. ENFORCE VACATION RULES Dean Fox Asks Co-operation of Heads of Houses at Meeting. Term vacation rules were discussed at a meeting of the heads of women’s ' fraternities, with Dean Elizabeth Fox, on Thursday. Miss Fox urges co-op eration in enforcement of regular l.'ni versity Tides during vacation. Plans for campus Red Cross work vsere outlined by Miss Fox, who sug gested that the head of each house do all in her power to help the cause. It was decided to leave membership cards at t*- e different houses, giving l'n* vcrsity women a chance to join the or ganization before vacation. MEN URGED TO WAIT FOR SECOND DRAFT i President Campbell Appeals to Students to Remain in College if Possible. College Training Insures Good Chance in National Army. "The one big task of college authori ties now,” said president Campbell yes terday, “is to try to keep down sudden rushes for enlistment in the army. While it is not the idea of the faculty to keep men from enlisting, yet they wish to strongly impress upon them the evil re sults, should all men who have been preparing themselves in schools of high er learning, leave to join the army. “It is not that we wish to appear selfish in this matter, but it is in keep ing with very strong advise from Sec j retary of Walr Baker, and others of i high governmental authority in Wash j ington, D. C., that all men remain in ! school, until a time when their country • shall need them.” The war department cannot discriminate in favor of the college man, while selecting the men to be drafted, but it is easy to see that should they be in a position to do so, they would undoubtedly leave the col lege man in school until he has finished his education. | Another big factor which presents ) itself, is need of training men to help in ithe period of reconstruction, after the war. The country will look to the universities to furnish these men. “The system of drafting is becoming to be looked upon ns not only the most fair, but the most successful method of creating an army. People are fast learning ito consider the draft more fav orably than a« a mark of disgrace. I “In the draft army the well-trained college man will undoubtedly have a de cided advantage, when it comes time to select non-commissioned officers. He will be thrown with a large number of men, the majority of whom have had no previous military experience, and probably not much more than a high school education. The ability of a well trained man is bound to stand out and gain for him ithe better positions. If he enlists, he will lose this advan tage, for he will be wi*?l men who have years of military experience. “A great many of the men have feared that should they wait for the draft, they would be placed in a department of the army, which would be undesir able. From the reports of former uni versity students, who are now commis sioned offices in the various camps, this is not the case. Every oportunity is offered for a man to make good in that ■department, for which he is best suited. Drafted men are allowed to transfer from one department to another, until they have found congenial work.’’ MISS WINSLOW TO LECTURE Playground Management Will Be Theme of Physical Trainer’s Talks. .Miss Cartharine Winsliaw, assistant physical director for wompn, at the University of Oregon, will give a lecture i next Tuesday evening, before the parent teachers' association of Cottage Grove, on the scientific management of play grounds. Her lecture will be illustrated by a series of stereopticon views, many of which were procured by Miss Winslow herself, in her varied and successful career as a playground instructor, in some of the largest cities in the United' States. This will be the first of a series of illustrated addresses that Miss Winslow will probably give in cities and towns (of Oregon. Her meetings will be ar ranged under the direction of the exten sion division of the University. HAS BROTHERS IN SERVICE Eric Allen’s Kinsmen Have Places in Army and Navy. Dean Uric W.

It was SOME party! “The best, time of my college year,” was the verdict of each of the 300 freshmen, who attended the annual Kap pa Sigma frosh smoker. From 8 o'clock in the evening until the final strains of the last sorority house serenade, early this morning, there was something doing every minute for the green capper*. The Kappa Sigma house was turned into one grand den of iniquity, which would have made dance halls of the Yukon look like missionary establish ments. The Red Dog saloon was there, complete with the sawdust floor, and the bar presided over by two linen-dad bnrlScepets, who passed out for the small price of one bone, various kind of liquids before the anti-temperance days. There were card tnliles, where freckles* frosh bet huge stacks of their green backs on the outcome of poker games, and a roulette whell, which made mil lionaires and hoboes. A table loaded with an inexhanstable supply of cigar ettes. smoking tobacco, pipes and matches, made the evening enjoyable for the many slaves of Ijady Nicotine. CIVILIAN ORDNANCE JOBS FOR MEN UNFIT FOR WAR Letter From War Department Says Those Rejeoted After End of Course Will Get Chance. Uncle Sain nerds several hundred cap able young men for civilian positions in the ordnance department of the army, at Washington, D. C. This information is contained in a let ter just received from officials of the war department, by Professor C. C. Jeremiah of school of commerce. The letter advises that all students in the ordnance courses of the University, who are rejected for physical disability, after completing their work on the campus, will be given positions in the civilian branch of the service, at salaries rnng . ing from $1,000 to $1,200 n year. Professor Jeremiah interprets this to mean thait the government does not propose to give civilian positions to men who are physically capable of ren dering active military service, but that those who are rejected for physical Teasons, will still be given a chiance to “do theix bit.” TRIPLE C PLANS STUNT FOR BIG JUNIOR LOTTERY Girls Enthusiasts Over Class Dance; Work on Red Cross Caps Also at Meeting. Hilarity reigned supreme late Thurs day afternoon at the bungalow, when the Triple C girls held their regular meeting, and worked out n stunt for the junior party, on Friday evening. .Some of the girls worked on caps, 1 which have been donated by the Red j Cross.

MENTOR GOES TO PASADENA Good Crowd Bids An Revoir to Man Responsible for Cali fornia Victory. “1 f I don't got the war bug, and col lege conditions are normal next year. I’ll be back.” Such were the last words of Conch Bezdek, spoken before n crowd of rooters, faculty, and towns people last night, just before he boarded the rattler for California. A fair crowd of rooters turned out to see Bez dek off and show him that Oregon really wants him back again next year. Jimmie Sheehy, representing the stu dent body, spoke of the past work done by Conch Bezdek at Oregon. “We are all links in a mighty Oregon,” said Sheehy. “We aTe assembled here to show our appreciation for the work that Coach Bezdek has done. It is with the deepest of regret that we have to let Coach Bezdek leave us nt this time, we want him all the time. And the only condition under which we are letting him leave us tonight is that he be with us when school opens again next fall.” President Campbell was called upon by Sheehy to speak a few words. “We are sending Coach Bezdek south to dem onstrate once again that, in athletics at lenst, the West is superior to the East,” i said President Campbell. "Last year | Coach Bezdek and the University of Oregon eleven demonstrated that teams representing civil life of the West, were superior to teams representing civil life of the East; this year Coach Bezdek and the Marine team are going to show that teams representing the military body of the West are superior to teams representing the military units of the East. Wherever Coach Bezdek goes, the hearts and best wishes of every man and woman in the University go with him.” As the train approached, .Tames Sheehy presented Coach Bezdek with the foot ball that Steer’s carried for sixty yards over California’s goal line. On the football were the names of every man who made his football “O” I this year, and also those of Bill Hay ward and Dean Walker. Inscribed on the pigskin were the words "Oregon 21, California 0.” As the train carrying Conch Bezdek and his family pulled out of the South ern Pacific depot, the band struck up “Mighty Oregon,” and the rooters gave three chpers for Bezdek, until the train had passed out of sight.
