Hayward Field To Be Scene
Of Clashes With Idaho
And Washington
The University of Oregon will
open the 1920 football season with
Idaho on Hayward field, October 23,
according to Marion F. McClain,
graduate manager of athletics. The
schedule now complete, except for
the arranging of one or two practice
games earlier in the season, calls for
three Pacific Coast and one North
west Conference games next season,
and one game with the University of
Southern California in Los Angeles
on Thanksgiving day. In addition
practice games with Willamette
University and Multnomah club may
be played, McClain said.
On October 30, one week after the
opening game, the team will play
Stanford in Palo Alto. This will be
Oregon’s first football game against
Leland Stanford University. With
one week of rest intervening the
Varsity will meet the University of
Washington on Hayward field, No
vember 13, Oregon’s Homecoming
Day. The last game of the confer
ence season will be staged with the
Aggies in Corvallis on Nevember 20.
This classic contest which each year
draws hundreds of football fans from
all over Oregon is to be staged on
O. A .C.’s Homecoming Day. On No
vember 25, Thanksgiving day,
“Shy’s” warriors will renew their ac
quaintance with the southland when,
they meet the University of South
ern California in Los Angeles.
Idaho can be looked to this year
to furnish some real thrills in the
Northwest conference, Manager Mc-j
Captain-Elect of
Bill Steers, pilot of 1920 eleven, se
lected as all-coast quarter this year.
Clain declares. He bases his confi
dence in their strength in their ac
quisition of Coach Kelley, team mate
of Hugo Bezdek at the University of
Chicago, and since noted for his
work as assistant coach at the Uni
versity of Missouri and coach of the
Uinversity of Georgia. Kelley was
one of the greatest football men of
his time and is practically certain to
put Idaho strongly in the running
for conference honors, McClain
The football schedule this year can
be banked on as being one of the
greatest money makers in Oregon’s
athletic history, Manager McClain

Wonderful Victory At Pullman
Encourages Fans Over Next
Year’s Prospects
Oregon has just finished a success
ful track season, and the dopesters are
already turning to next year’s pros
pects. The climax of the season was
the wonderful victory at Pullman,
when Oregon won the Northwest Con
ference championship.
Bill Hayward and every other track
enthusiast believes that Oregon will
have a mighty good track team next
year. Bill says, as he always does,
that the most important thing is “to
get men who will work, and train all
during the season.” The loss of
“Hank” Foster will be keenly felt, but
if the men will give Bill all they have,
he is of the opinion that a good, strong
teata. can be built up in the other de
partments. Bill Hayward does not win
the meets by records, he wins by get
ting the men to follow his instructions
—and hyi hard-working athletes.
Next year Hayward will have a
bunch of good frosh to assume varsity
places. Collins will be a sensation if
he will only train, and work for Hay
ward. Of course, Arthur Tuck will he
a shining lifeht, and Tuck has a good
chance to make himself famous. “Ole”
Larson* and Del Oberteuffer both look
like they had the ability. Under Bill’s
guidance these men should pull Ore
gon through a wonderful year.
Carl Knudsen a Good Prospect.
CarT Knudsen is going to be one of
the mainstays in the coming year. His
work this year in the hurdles indi
cated his ability, and Bill is looking

Strong Trio of Veteran Pitchers
Will Bolster Team; Lind’s
Shoes Hard To Fill
With all but two members of the
1920 team eligible for next year, var
sity baseball prospects look exceeding
ly bright. Shy will not be without
troubles, however, for the graduation
of Jay Fox and Captain Herm Lind
will leave two big holes in the infield.
Both men added lots of pep and gin
ger to the team, and Lind will be an
especially hard man to replace for he
was a mighty slugger in addition to
being a consistent player in the field.
Other * vacancies may appear before
next season opens, however, and it is
not certain that either Bill Steers or
Spike Leslie will be back to play. \
Steers was a sure man in center field
and both he and Spike ranked high
among the sluggers. Spike was rap
idly developing into a star received
too, and was working smoother every
game the varsity played. Some of the
heaviest hitters from this year’s
freshman team will have to be relied
on in case Bill Steers is not back.
Either Vince Jacobberger or Pink
Manerud may be developed into a
varsity catcher if Leslie is not on
Many Will Fight for Infield
First base will be the greatest prob
lem for Shy to work on. Ralph Smith
of this year’s freshman team or Due
kie Holmes of the same aggregation
may be able to handle it. The other
infield vacancy will be at third. Hous
ton, Liebe, Black, Collins and Beller,
subs this year, may all be candidates
for the position. Hugh Jacobberger
of the freshman team may have a
chance at an infield position too, for

Skeet Manerud Is almost a sure bet at
short as he has held down his pos
ition with room to spare.
Pitcher will be where Shy has no
worries in case all of his prospects
return. Berg, Jacobberger and Jacob
son, all veteraos of this year’s team,
will make a formidable combination
for any conference team to face. In
addition he will have Shim and Knud

Recognition Again Given By
Choice of Varsity Men On
AU-Star Teams
The placing of more Oregon men on
the mythical quintets than from any
other colleges goes to prove that the
Oregon basketball team was one of
the fastest In the conferences In spite
of the fact the lemon-yellow hoopers
did not bring home the championship
to Eugene. Eddie Durno, captain-elect
bf next year’s quintet, has for two
years been chosen on the all-coast flvel
Nish Chapman, Oregon’s famous guard
was selected on the Northwest team.
.Herm Lind, captain of this year’'®
crew, graduates this year. The big
“lefty” alternated between forward
and center the pdst season and held
both positions In a masterful way.
Lind finished his third consecutive
year on the varsity basketball team.
Francis Beller played guard on the
quintet. It was his first year on the
five,, but he played his position like a
veteran at the game. He was sure In
his passing and had lots of fight.
Francis Jacobberger Is one of the old
timers on the team and he played his
position at guard with an ease that
was puzzling to his opponents. Jake
had a happy faculty of being Just In
the right place at the right time.
Skeet Manerud broke into the game
after he had finished a heavy season
of football. Oregon’s diminutive for
ward took to basketball Just like foot- *
ball and finished up his athletic career
this year by playing shortstop on the
varsity nine and throwing the Javelin
for Bill once in awhile for exercise*.

To the Students of the University of Oregon
• * #»
By this means wish to congratulate you on the splen
did success of the campaign for the millage bill, and to ex
press my appreciation of the whole-hearted and untiring
way n which you gave your best efforts for the success of
the measure. The victory is, in large measure, yours, and
so, in even larger measure, will the fruits of the victory be
yours. It will mean a new “Oregon”; and it is casting no
disparagement on the University of the past to say that the
new, as it emerges from the old, will be not only a larger
- but a better University.
In our natural elation over the outcome of the cam
paign, with all "that it means in the way of growth, devel
opment and improvement, let us not lose sight of the fact
every new privilege carries with it a new responsibility;
and in granting us this very large increase in the funds
which sustain the University, the people of the state are,
at the same time, expecting more of us. The large amount
of publicity given this institution, in connection with the
campaign, has focussed public attention on it as never be
fore. And that attention, kindly in the main, but not with
out the possibility of criticism, will be attracted to you, the
students of the University. When you go to your home
communities for the summer vacation, you will be observed
as representative products of the University of Oregon.
What you say and do and are will be considered as evid
ences of the effect upon you of your college experience.
With that thought in your mind—the thought that your col
lege is being judged through you—you can hardly do other
than hold yourselves to a standard of conduct worthy of
The millage bill victory is nothing less than a great
vote of confidence on the part of the people in the efficiency
of higher education. As such it should—and will—beget
a new pride, a new dignity, a new loyalty. The achieve
ments of “Oregon” have been due largely to the united
loyalty of her students and friends. May the new and
larger University never lack that united loyalty! Given
that, and with the new and broad opportunities now made
clear for us, there is no attainment beyond our reach.
