T. C. Men Retire Civilian Garb on Eve of Demobilization Did you notice thnt continuous flock of uniformed men hitting it up across the campus yesterday morning—nnd did you notice the bundle under their arm and the not infrequent suitcase in the hand of many of them? Did you wonder if Christmas vacation had already ar rived and think that you had been play ing a little Itip Van Winkle stunt dur ing the past two weeks? Or, did you ■ think the fellows had packed up their | S. A. T. C. troubles in. their old kit bags, and were carrying said miseries over to the Willamette river to be dashed int*> thnt whirling pool, never to rea^> pour again? If you hnd a glimmering of any one of these ideas you were suffering tinder a sad hallucination, for the men were in reality only obeying the recent mili tary order to do away with all civilian clothing in their bnrrncks on or before Saturday morning For some, the leave taking was sor rowful, for others, glorious. The fel low with the large wardrobe, consisting of: two suits of good edothes and a con scientious conscience, had a hard time sellatg his wordly embellishments of a pnst age to the second hand dealer, whose shop was already over-stocked with suits, sized from 18 to -1JV On the other hand the fellow who obeyed the order with a happy heart was he who had ruined his only good stilt of wear ing apparel while drilling In the rain; and who. itt eonseqquenee, had been re duced to a single pair of trousers and n dingy looking sweater that he had won in the good old days a! the prep school, •before he had learned tlmt he didn’t know enough about football to trawl with the scrub team at the University. After all, the wearing of the uniform parts every man on an equal with the ! next. So, here’s hats off to equality and the military order.

FIVE OREGON MEN ON HUNTINGTON'S ILL-CUT TERM Trowbridge, Mantz, Harding. Wilson, Brandenberg on Star Eleven. FOUR CALIFORNIANS IN HONORARY LINEUP Eckmann, of Washington, Best Quarter; Powell, 0. A. C., Leads Fullbacks. Five Oregon players and four from California receive positions on the myth ical all-Pacific Const eleven picked by Coach “Shy" Huntington of the Univer sity of Oregon. While the Pacific Coast Conference is not operating this year Huntington has innde his selection from the teams that made up this union. Huntington has mnde his selection af ter seeing all of the men in action and lias picked the ones that he has because that they are the best, judging from the method of play that he employs. O. A. C. and the University of Waste ington each draw down one berth At center “Shy” lias placed Barnes, of California, as he considers him to be the best bet in this department on the coast, Barnes has done some fine work for flie Southern team this Beason nnd is a foxy player. Negro Placed at Guard The guards selected are Manta, nt Oregon, and Gordon of California. The ability of Mnntz is well known to all Oregon followers of the gridiron while Gordon will be remembered ns the ebony luted six footer that tried to stop Ore gon here Inst year. Gordon is the only negro playiug on the const. This is his second season on the nll-st.er eleven Trowbridge, of Oregon, nnd Majors, of California, are the choice for tackles. According to the men who went south, Majors Is a bear of a player and deserv ed the position. Trowbridge is one of the shining lights of the Oregon line. Although he has been outweighed by the opposition in every game this season he bus more than held his own. In the selection of ends Oregon takes both positions in Howard and Wilson. Good ends were scarce on the coast this season, and the Oregon hoys showed up ns well, if not better, than any of the others, Huntington believes. They are especially good in the passing game and this fact probably put them on the team that will never be. Eckmann a Real Star Eckmann, the clever little qunrter fo> the University of Washington, receives the quarterback position according to Huntington. Eckmaun's work against Oregon was of the first magnitude. Sprott, of California and Branden herg, of Oregon, are without a doubt the best half backs on the coast. The work of botli has been little short of sensa tional, and they are both great line buck-' era. I*owell of O. A. C., gets the fullback position ns ho is oup of the best men In this department seen in the Northwest for several moons. He is the only Aggie given a first-team berth by Hunt ington. Other players that deserve honorable mention are F. Jacobberger, Pat O’ Rourke and Albert IlardlngV of Ore gon ; Walker of Washington, Barley and Hodler of O. A. C. and Watson of Cali fornia.
