their muscle in the work. Wrestling,

jumpers were talso able to get in some
work. The distance, men were the ones
who met th'‘ obstacles, in attempting to
get their workouts. Daily practice
schedules were earned out on ship

always been handicapped in track by hav

Tentative Arrangements Made.
Tentative arrangements ore on with
the Multnomah chit) for a game to he
played Saturday, but there appears to ho
a disagreement somewhere, and the dates
have not been closed. Multnomah wants
the game played in Portland while the
Oregon athletic directors want the game
played in Eugene as a preliminary to
the opening of the season. It is possible
that an agreement may be reached before
the end of the week and a game played
here yet. The game for October 1C has
not been definitely arranged as yet. al
though the winged M team Is out of the
question for that date as they have n
scheduled game with the Aggies in Cor
vallis on that day.
The Multnomah aggregation has n
number of former Oregon men on the
squad according to reports from Port
land this fall. Among them are Stan
Anderson, and “Bob” Cosgriff who work
ed under Huntington last year, vres
Maddook who played on the Oregon var
sity in 1017, is also out for a place.

Field work in water first: aid under
the auspices of the northwestern division
of the American lied Cross constituted
the summer work of .Toe Hedges, a sen
ior in the law school of the University.
Hedges traveled over the major portion
of the states of Oregon. Washington and
Idaho, and gave instruction jn life saving
and qualification tests for life savers in
some 30 towns and cities.
Tim purpose of the work was to visit
those points which had swimming fa
cilities and to give instruction in life
saving. 'Local life saving corps were es
tablished from those who were able to
pass the tests. A local board of examin
ers was usually established so that the
tests might be continued and thereby
keep the local corps of life savers built
mp with new members.
Puget SountU'First Visited.
The Puget Sound district was the first
to be visited by Hedges. From there he
went into eastern Washington, then
northern Idaho, from there down to Lew
iston, Pasco, Walla Walla, Pendleton, La
Grande, and points in eastern Oregon
and southern Idaho.
Several lives are known to have been
saved as a result of the wort. Shortly
after Hedges gave the life saving tests
at Lewiston, a drowning woman was res
cued from the Snake river and resus
citated by one of those who had passed
the test. Another rescue was made by n
life saver who had passed the test tun
two weeks before. He pulled two boys
out of the Columbia up in eastern Wash
ington. Hedges himself assisted In re
suscitating a woman at. American FaTTs.
Fake Fails to Lure.
At Wall,'! Walla a fake drowning was
staged for his benefit, said Hedges. The
man in charge of the tank there asked
him to watch the tank for a short time
while he was'absent. Soon after the man
left Hedges was attracted by a splash
and save a man fully clothed, struggling
in the middle of the tank. lie pulled off
bis sweater and started for the tank but
stopped in suspicion when he saw that
the “drowning” man took good care, to
draw a long breath and avoid swallow
ing any water before he went down ‘for
the third time.” Finding that he was not
to lie rescued the victim swam to the
edge of the tank and crawled out in dis

and through it congeniality and Oregon's

the women’s houses of the campus. Di
rectly following rush week and pledging,
open house serves also as a reception for
pledges and their first appearance In the

Cox. Upon conference with Dean Eliza
beth Fox. it was decided to divide the
houses so that a group from earn means
house would visit every girl’s house on
