$2000 TO BE BORROWED
BY STUDENTS FOR CO-OP
Executive Committee Decides to Obtain
Funds for Outstanding Bills
of Campus Store.
The executive committee of the stu
dent body at a meting yesterday in A. R.
Tiffany’s office decided to borrow $12000
to pay outstanding bills of the Co-op
“The Co-op.” Mr. Tiffany said, “start
ed two years ago without any capital. A
year ago it was forced to borrow $2000
to buy necessary stock. The store has
now merchandise on hand amounting to
$5600. If the Co-op now borrows $12000.
the value of the stock on hand will still
much more than cover the $4000 indebt
A recent invoice of the store shows a
profit of over $11200 for the past two
years. “Mr. McClain,” said Mr. Tiffany,
"deserves a great deal of credit for con
tinuing the business of the store, as he
has under such adverse conditions.”
When President Campbell returns, the
advisability of continuing the Co-op
as a student body store next year will be
riscussed. “It is very doubtful,” said
Emma Wotton Hall, member of the com
mittee, “that the student body will be
able to finance the Co-op store next

Oregon has ninety dollars in her coffers

Baseball is never counted on to do

Thrilling Ninth Inning Gives
Victory to U. of 0.—Aggie
Team Speeds up Since
Grebe, Lind, and Steers Shine
for University; Ten to
Oregon made it six out of eight from
O. A. C. when she grabbed a fast, hotly
contested game Saturday by a thrilling
ninth inning rally and a story book fin
ish. The final count was 5 to 4 in fa
vor of the lewon-yellow after the count'
bad see-sawed back and forth through
out the contest.
When the ninth inning opened Oregon
was one run behind and the Aggies were
going strong. “Rabbit” Grebe opened
the frame by getting a single and was
followed by Lind, who got his second
hit of the day, a safe bunt along the
third base line. Medley advanced the
runners to second and third and then
with one down Bill Steers strode to the
plate with a mighty stride and placed
one of Mr. Krueger’s carefully delivered
balls into the outer garden, between
Preston and Baldwin. The hit
would have been good for a homer, if a
homer were needed, but since Bill had
just drawn up at second when Lind
crossed the platter with the winning
run he only gets credit for a two-base
wallop. Nevertheless, it was some blow.
Aggie Team Improves.
The Corvallis team showed an im
provement of about a million per cent
since they first thrust their spikes into
Cemetery Ridge, and in both of the last
two games they appeared to have the
ear marks of real ball players. The im
provement of Rickson, the Aggie sec
ond saeker, was most pronounced. Two
weeks ago he was good for about four
boots in each contest and was hitting
about nil. On Saturday he gathered two
hits out of five trips to the plate and
while he made one error he handled
