Reholdirrg of Contest Gives
First Place to Oregon in
Tri-State League
Mixup Occurs in Awarding of Prize;
Oregon Representative First
Thought to be Loser
Fred Coley, of the University of
Oregon, is the final winner of the
Fri-state Oratorical Contest as a re
sult of the reholding of Frilay’s con
test last night. A summation ■ of
points gives Coley two first and a
second on composition .and a first
and two seconds on delivery while
Kenneth Cole, of the University of
Washington, secured two firsts and
a second on delivery and a first, sec
and and third on composition. This
puts the Oregon man one point in
the lead and gives him the prize.
Owing to a misunderstanding on
the part of the chairman, who figured
on a percentage basis instead of hy
straight points as is the custom, it
was given out last night that Cole
had won. When the points were
checked up, however, it was found
that Coley was the rightful victor
and as the Washington man has re
turned to Seattle, steps are being
taken to inform him of the final
result and keep him from collecting
the cash prize of $100.
First Meeting Friday
The contest was re-held last night
because Cole failed to appear last.
Friday night as a result of a mis
understanding of the date hy his
manager. He arrived Saturlay and
in order to give him a fair chance
arrangements we^p made to have the
deliveries judged again. R. R. Bres-,,
hears, of the University of Idaho,
was eliminated from the competition
by the decisions of the judges Fri
day so Coley and Cole were the only'
speakers last night.
The percentage basis is used only
in the event of a tie in points be
tween the contestants. A tie oc
curred last year and when the re
sults wer efigured from the percent
ages gives by the judges Joseph
Boyd, of the University of Oregon,
was found to be the winner. The
use of this basis to settle the tie
last year gave the chairman last
night to understand that it was used
all the time.
$100 Goes to Winner
A dispute will probably result as
to who is the winner of the prize
of $100, which is offered by the
Honorable E. F. Blaine, of Seattle,
but the summation of points gives
Coley a definite lead over his com
The address given by Coley was
entitled, "Call no Man Common,”
and that of Cole was, “Theodore
Roosevelt” Coley is a senior in the
University and is a major in the
sociology department.
Miss-Thomson Pleased With Early
Trials In Distance Shooting;
High Mark 423 Feet
The first records made at the Uni
versity for flight shooting, a new
phase in archery being worked up
in Miss Harriet Thomson’s classes
in which the archer shoots for dis
tance rather than for the target,
were made on May 27, when E.
Grace Young established the best
record, shooting a distance of 423
feet 8 inches. Frances Moore ,was
second with,401 feet 5 inches. Anna
Hill shot 392 feet six inches and
Mabel Smith 346 feet.
The greatest record in flight shoot
ing made by men is a distance of
900 feet, made with a 60 pound bow.
The bows used by Miss Thomson's
classes average about 28 pounds and
the distances made are almost half
as great as those made by men with
stronger bows and much longer prac

No fooling the Owl club vs. S.

wise boys carried off the big end of
the score, 8 to 4. Jimmy Ross, who

team, performed with suclt ability

like an army blanket on a cold

the balls from strikes. Roy David

Where i8 Cup?
It is about as hard to get any
dope on who will win the doughnut
championship as it is to find out
who the president of Mexico is. The
Delt-Kappa Sig game will be the best
contest of the preliminary round, as
both houses has fast, snappy teams
that will make a big yell for the
Cup? Yes, where is it? The
teams winning for the last two years
Phi Delts, and Oregon club, have
not received the cup to which they
are entitled; because of winning the
championship, and because each or
ganization pays two dollars to the
inter-fraternity council to buy the
cup. The mystery is: where does
the money go, and if there is a cup
where is it?
