HEW FIELD NEEDED

Although- it id TWWpian of the School

its branched of activity for the coming
year, no definite schedule has thus far
'been arranged nor has a field been pro
vided for practice.
Dean Colin V. Dyment who was a
member of the University of Toronto
soccer team when he attended college
there, has been asked to coach the sport
but has not definitely consented.; “I will
consider coaching soccer only whep a
suitable field has been produced,’* said
.Dean Dyment yesterday, “a good field
upon which to practice is in my opinion
an essential in the production of a good
team.” Although the time which Dean
Dyment would be able to spend- with the
team is limited by the estept of his
duties as head of the college of literature,
science and the arts, it is likely that he
will handle the coaching in case a favor
able field is provided.
With some labor spent upon it Kin
caid field could be put in fair shape for
soccer and it is likely that this will be
the place chosen when practice starts.
Several of the members df last year’s
aggregation beside several new men have
signed up for soccer in registration and
these men have for the present beep as
signed to the new intramural work. The
members of last year’s team in college
this year are Schmeer, Koerber, H. .Tac

One thing of unusual interest about

SECRET PRDGTICE lUU
SCRIMMICE III STORE
' FOR FOOTBILL TERM
Squad Uses Vacant Lot Near
Hayward Field For
OREGON MEETS IDAHO
IN EUGENE OCT. 23
Multnomah Game Injuries Not
to Keep Any of Men
The hardest kind of work, including
some two hours of scrimmage, and secret
practice will form the schedule for
Coach Huntington’s football squad this
week, according to information given out
at training quarters last night. Coaches
Huntington and .Spellman were not
pleased with the work of the Varsity
eleven in the Saturday’s game against
Multnomah, and no doubt the players
will be well acquainted with this fact
before the end of the present week.
The squad moved over to the vacant
lot near Hayward field Monday after
noon, where they will be drilled from
now on. Coach Huntington is not anxious
for the students to be present during
practice and the only night hereafter
when spectators will be allowed to watch
the A7arsity workouts will be on Wed
nesday when yell practice will take place
on Hayward field. “Shy” announces that
there will be a snappy scrimmage work
out pulled off for the benefit of the root
■ers this afternoon during yell practice.
New Plays to Be Used.
New plays are now the chief topic
among the members of the coaching staff
and fi’om now on this will be the nature
of workouts, together with the drilling of
signals. Only six plays were used in the
Saturday’s game against Multnomah and
the majority of the players were not
familiar with the signals for these six
“Bill” Hayward, who looks after the
training of the squad Uas given Coach
Huntington instructions to show no mercy
in practice this week, and it will be Mon
day before there will be a let-up. This
will be in time to get the team whipped
“into shape for the Idaho game.
Injuries resulting from the Multnomah
game are not going to prove serious al
though the entire lemon-yellow backfield
suffered minor bruises, which will keep
them on the bench during the scrimmage
workouts this w’eek. Frank Hill is suffer
ing from a “eharley horse,” “Bill” Rine
hart and “Jake” Jacobberger are both
limping from the effects of some bad
leg bruises, and George King has a slight
ly sprained ankle. Ed Ward also sus
tained a bad shoulder bruise.
Dope on Game Uncertain.
Coach Huntington is not very talkative
over the Idaho game. Little is known
of the gem-staters squad this season,
and from the dope it appears that they
will have a. strong team in the field.
Oregon has never been defeated by Idaho,
and it is not the intention of the coach
ing staff to allow the Idaho eleven to
win the game. Idaho meets Washington
State in their initial game of the season
on Saturday. From the results of this
game it wall be possible to get a line
on the strength of the Idaho team this
BOLITHO GIVES ADDRESS
Public Accountants of Oregon Hear
Frof. T. J. Bolitho, who does extension
work in Portland for the School of f'oni
merce, remained over Monday evening to
address ihe Oregon State Society of Cer
tified Public Accountants. Dr. E. C.
Robbins, dean of the School of Com
merce, says it is a distinct honor to be
asked to address this society, which is
composed of the certified accountants of
the state. Accounting firms of Portland
and outlying towns were represented at
Professor Bolitho’s address was on
“Education in Accounting.” He traced
the growth of American schools of ac
counting from about 1800 when there
were very few', to the present when near
ly all live universities offer such courses.
Prof. Bolitho thinks there should lie close
co-operation between the State Society
, and the University.
TURNS IN RESIGNATION
Mary Ellen Bailey Thinks Work Too
Difficult to Be Undertaken
Mary Ellen Bailey, who was elected
last spring by the student council to the
position of university historian, handed in
her resignation to the student council
last night. Miss Bailey stated that she
found the records in such a condition that
it was impossible for her to carry on her
work. She suggests that someone be
hired to devote all of her time to bringing
the records up to date. When this is
completed it will be possible for a student
to act as historian in connection with her
other student activities, she declares.
Miss Adelaide Lake, historian for the
101D-20 year, found that it was not prac
tical for a student to try to bring the
historical records up to date, so made
only a complete record of the past year.
Earl Ludford Sustains Neck
and Back Injuries.
Earl Ludlord, a sophomore in the uni
versity, had his neck severely eut and
his back wrenched when the blue Ford
bug in which he was riding with Edgar
Gurney and Howard Powell crashed into
the rear of a car driven by F. X. Shaef
ers, of the Ax Billy department store
yesterday noon at the corner of High and
Ludlord, who lives at the home of his
parents at 355 West Ninth street, Eu
gene; Powell, a freshman of 1128 Wash
ington street, and Gurney, 361 Madison
street, were going up Thirteenth street
toward the university when the car driv
en hy Mr. Shaefers emerged from High
street. The Ford hit the rear fender of
the other car and went spinning over the
wet pavement into the curb, throwing all
three of the occupants to the ground, and
injuring Ludford more severely than the
other two, who were merely bruised.
People who had heard the crash im
mediately carried the men into the Delta
Zeta house, in front of which the accident
had occurred. Dr. Berle G. Howard was
called nnd'Ludford was taken to the Eu
gene hospital, where it was stated that
his injuries werp not serious.
According to eyewitnesses, the Ford
car was traveling at a rapid rate of
speed at the time of the accident, and
the windshield was covered with rain
drops which obscured the vision. ~ It was
a one-seated car.
The Shaefers’ car was not damaged.
Gurney and Fowell were able to be about
the campus yesterday afternoon, and
Ludford is expected to be out of the hos
pital in a few days.
HIM BETH SIGMA
Local University Commerce
Club Granted Charter.
Gamma Beta Sigma, men’s national
honorary commerce fraternity, has grant
ed a charter to the local University Com
merce Club. The petition was sent in
last spring under the recommendation of
Dr. Morton, former head of the com
merce department, who recently advised
members of the club that the charter had
been granted and that steps are being
taken for immediate installation.
The University Commerce Club was
organized in 1915 with a membership of
seventy students. The requirements for
membership are grades of either S or 11
in the commerce department. During
the war the club became inactive, and
it was not until last spring that it was
re-established. Under the advice of Div
Morton juniors and seniors in the depart
ment, whose grades met the require
ments, drew tip tlie petition and sent it
in shortly before the close of the spring
Members of the University Commerce
club who will be initiated at the installa
tion of Gamma Beta Sigma are Jack
Benefeil, Don Davis, Franklin Miller,
Franklin Foults, Bill Balckaby, Carl
Miller, and Ross McKenna. Officers are

of Varsity Men.

also a prominent member of the foot
ball and basketball teams.
Since Bohler’s graduation from W. 8.
C., in 1014, he has been handling physical
education in the East. He will in a)l
probability prove a valuable asset to the
lemon-yellow basketball quintet which ex
pects to begin work at once. Hough
nut basketball, together with intercom
pany and interclass schedules will be
drawn up within the next two weeks and
regular practice will begin.
It is the desire of the athletic council
to get a specialist in each line of gport*
to handle the varsity teams. “Shy” Hunt
ington was ftfrced to take over the coach
ing of the basketball five last season be
cause there were no coaches available
for this branch of sport. This work can
begin long before the ending the the foot
ball season and the team will be in
better shape for the opening of the
The athletic council also passed a reso
lution at its special meeting requiring
