IT THE LEASH FOR
BATTLE WITH O.I.C.
Aggie Line Has Benefit of Ex
tra Weight; Backs
TEAM IN GOOD SHAPE
FOR FIGHT, SAYS SHY
No Predictions Made As To
Outcome; Muddy Field
(By Floyd Maxwell,)
“The team is in good shape and we’ll
fight them to the last, win or lose,”
Coach “Shy” Huntington said last night.
“But the students must not become too
confident of winning this game.' We
have n fight on our hands, and we know
it.” Coach (Huntington is not making
any predictions as to the outcome of the
battle with the Aggies slated to begin at
Corvallis at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon.
“We know that O. A. C. are going to
get us this year if they can.” he con
tinued, “and we have nothing to be con
fident about.” According to all reports,
the Aggies have saved themselves for
the past three weeks to win from Ore
gon, and the condition of the Aggie
gridiron is going to make the outcome"
of the battle hard to predict.
Oregon will be outwieghod by the Ag
gies abo*t 8 pounds on the line, which
will be a decided advantage on the Cor
vallis field. The backfields will aver
age about the same weight, -with Ore
gon having a slight advantage,' if Coac,h

position for the Beavers.
Nearly Every Aggie Heavier.
In practically every position on the
Oregon line, the players will be opposed
by men who outweigh ‘h-m. At ends

by “Chuck” Rose of the Agi;.os. Rose

two year letter man. He is playing his
last season with the Aggies. Howard is
playing his second year on the Oregon

from experience. “If it is necessary to

Lemon-Yellow Record Is Only
One Defeat During
FOURTEEN MEN WILL
MAKE CORVALLIS TRIP
Condition of Team Poor, But
Spirit All There, Says
With a record of only one defeat in
eight years, and that by a lucky goal from
the center of the field in a game played
against Multnomah in 1910. the Oregon
soccer team will pi ay ,t lie O. A. C. rep
resentatives of the English game in Cor
vallis tomorrow morning. Fourteen men.
inclusive of a faculty member, probably
Coach Dyment, will make the trip to the
Aggie turf, leaving the S. P. depot at
7 :00 Saturday morning. Coach Dyment
has announced that the names of the
men who are to make the trip will be
posted on the bulletin board in the gym
nasium sometime today.
Although, Coach Dyment is not pleased
with the team work and efficiency of the
soccer squad, he expressed his satisfac
tion with the spirit demonstrated by the
men, saying that it was the best shown
since 1914. Twenty men have been
turning out through rain or shine, aver
aging 18 in the daily evening practices.
It is Coach D.vment’s opinion that the
team this year is better than last year’s
squad, but not as good as the,.teams of
Team’s Work Not Perfect.
Coach Dyment has been unable to de*
vote much time to the training of the
soccer men. He says that there are
many rough edges which should be
smoothed over to make the squad an
effective scoring machine, but during the
short time the men have been practic
ing it would have been folly to have in-i
structed them in intracacies of the game
as new methods in handling the ball in
passing would result in the loss of con
fidence. and would likely result in many
blunders in a closely contested game.
Dne to Coac-h D.vment’s inability to
superintend the nightly practices, the
team has had to work out its own prob
lems. Five positions are yet to be won
on the squad, said Coach Dyment. and
it is up to the players in the final prac
tices to determine who will fill these po
Development of team work has been
impossible during the past week due to
the aquatic condition of Kincaid field.
The ball skids erratically across the many
miniature lakes scattered ov?r the field,
or stops abruptly in a mud hole. The
heavy wator-Roaked ball has reduced
passing practice to a minimum.
Byers Handles Right End.
“Monte” Byers, a member of the
Peninsula soccer team which won the
championship of Portland last March, is
handling the outside right Berth adeptly,
and his long shots from the wing should
enable the center forwards to seme Don
McPherson, a member of the Washington
high school team of 1910. is playing a
p< 1 sistent game at inside right, and his
accurate goal shooting ar.J clever foot
work should loom up to advantage
against even the most experienced team.
Johnny Turk as errter forward is a
skilled player with lightning-like foot
work and the ability to dodge past his
opponents when the ball is in his possegj
sion. Turk was a member of the team
which defeated O. A. C. twice last year.
Sta.vton, Farrell and King are other as
porants for forward line berths.
With the expection of "Heinie” Koer
ber and Patterson in the backfield, and
“Hay” Sehmeer guarding the vital ter
ritory under the goal posts, the names of
the men who will appear .in the back
field against O. A. C. next Saturday is as
.vet uncertain. Madden. Ingles, Wallace.
Capps. Mack, Hull, Dierdorff and Bro
gan are contenders for \hese positions.

Bill Hayward Expects Oregon
»To Fight Aggie Team to Finish
Players Work in Rain and Mud for Biggest
Battle of Year; O. A. C. Bear Stories
Are Scouted by Fans
“They’re not going to outfight us.
They never did, and they never will,”
said Bill Hayward, Oregon’s veteran
trainer, last night and he voieed the sen
timent. of the 25 mud-besplattered,
drenched-to-the-skin members of the
,Oregon football squad who have been
working every night, this week under
/dust such conditions as those last night.
(The ball was covered with mud, the
players looked like they had just come
from a mud bath, but was there anyone
downhearted? No. not a player. And
behind this spirit is that of 1800 Uni
versity students, who are living, think
ing and talking in the one atmosphere
this week, that is to heat the Aggies.
No Cinch to Win,
‘‘We have no cinch, and we know it.”
continued Hayward, “and we’ll fight all
the harder for that reason. The team
is going into the game tomorrow in bet
ter physical condition than they were at
the time of the annual battle with the
Aggies a year ago. We are not scat
tering any bear stories and we have no
alibis to offer from that angle.” Bill
says that no effort is being spared to
keep the fighting ebb of the team up to
the standard of that shown against the
Sun Dodgers last Saturday. The team
was worked up to a high pitch against
the northerners and they are going to
keep up to that pitch against the Aggies.
Trainer Hayward and Head Coach
Huntington made a > trip to Corvallis
'yesterday where they took a little in
spection tour of the gridiron which is to
be the scene of the battle Saturday. The
O. A. C. gridiron is going to be just as
predicted, a literal sea of mud. Sawdust
will not help that field, because the mud
is there always and the deeper down,
the more mud. And here again is the
handicap, any team that can beat the Ag
gies on their mud flat must be about
three touchdowns better than the Aggies
on a dry or turf field.
No Aggies Injured.
Bear stories from the Corvallis train
ing quarters are taken with a grain of
salt this week for instance that the Ag
gies exerted themselves against Wash
ington State at Pullman last week, the
score of 28 to 0 that the Cougars ran
up on them con belie that statement.
There were no injuries suffered by the
Aggies in the game, they are as fit phy
sically as Oregon. “Gap” iPowell was
kept out of the Washington .State game
for the express purpose to use him in
their supreme effort to bent Oregon this
year. ■ * ■* * *:
“Pep” and rallies are ruling on the Ag
gie campus. But, although outnumbered
about two to one, the Oregon rooting
/section made more noise than the entire
Aggie delegation at the Oregon-O. A. C.
game last year and the Oregon rooters
are going to Corvallis to do the same
thing this year.
Big Bonfire Tonight.
The Aggies have a monster bonfire
which they are going to touch off to
night in a rally; the Aggies are wearing
buttons with the words “Smear Oregon”
on them. Coach “Red” Rutherford is
going- to tell the Aggie rooters at the
bonfire what he thinks of the Aggie
chances in Saturday’s game.
Oregon’s football team is fighting like
mad every night in practice and they
are going to fight like mad against the
orange and black eleven^ and the stu
dents will back them to a man. But the
report comes from the Co-op store that
so far the sale of Oregon seats at the
game Saturday is very slow. These
seats can be bought for 50 cents here,
£t will cost $1.00 for the same seat If
the students wait to purchase them at
the gate. If the seats are bought here
it will save a lot of confusion in getting
seated in the Oregon rooting section and
a long wait in line after the trains reach
Corvallis.’ There are no reserved seats
left for the game. Two special trains
will leave Eugene, one at 12 o’clock noon
on Saturday, the other at 12:10, return
ing these trains will leave at 5:30
o’clock. There is no reduction in train
fares, the round trip fare is $3.50. These
are all the facts that are considered
necessary. Oregon rooters will be be
hind their team at Corvallis, 1500 strong.
UNIVERSITY SEAL AND
“0” PAINTED ORANGE
Depredations Believed Work of Persons
Not Connected With
No clue has as yet hern found as to
the identity of the vandals who painted
the Oregon seal in front of Villard hall
and the “O” on Skinner’s Butte Wednes
day night. The opinion is expressed by
some that the work was done by persons
in Eugene either on or off the eanipus
who thought they could start a little ex
citement by the act.
Both the seal and the “O” were paint
ed orange. They were cleaned as soon
as freshmen could be got together to do
Some sentiment was expressed that
the freshman vigilance committee re
cently formed should have taken care
that these sacred objects be not molest
ed this week. In speaking of this Dean
John Straub, freshman adviser, said that
he had had a conference with Claire Wal
lace, freshman president, and the vigil
ance committee and they had decided
that it was not worjh while to guard it
in the rain.
“This vandalism is usually done by
misguided University students or town
boys,” the Dean said. “I am tired* of
seeing the freshman class forced to stand
guard in the rain and run the risk of

Bracers for Punch.
Have you “noticed the lemon-qolored
bowl that now sits in state in the library
just to the left of the inner entrauce?
W|ell, that’s the depository, i. e., place
to deposit something, for articles, es
says. jokes, drawings, hairpins, etc.,
which anyone or group of students ma.v

That doesn’t mean that anything drop

to be good before it will get by the edi

that ma.vbe your stuff isn’t any good and
acting on the doubt lay it aside. Turn
it in anyway. There is nothing more en
couraging to the editors than to find a
great collection of assorted wit and

The bowl is there. It has the lemon

Fighting Spirit Put In Team
By Coach Rutherford;
FOR SATURDAY GIVEN

Good Shape, Says Baro
meter Sport Editor.
B.v Win, L. Van Allen.
(Pacific Intercollegiate Newt Servtpct
Oregon Agricultural College, Novem
ber 18.—Special.—On the eve of the An
nual gridiron classic between the tvyo
major Oregon institutions of higher
learning, the hopes of the O. A. C.. stu
dent body are high. Despite the long
(String of Oregon victories, despitf tlie
(prophecies of victory for their rivals, and
despite the utmost efforts of Coach ‘Shy’
(Huntington and Trainer Bill Hayward*
the Aggie squad will go on to the field
Saturday with *be determination to win.
Coach Dick Rutherford has instilled a
spirit into the team that is unbfitbbii,
a spirit that will be square to the final
whistle. Trainer “Dad” Butler has ttyt
men in perfect condition and ajl of the
regular line:up will be able to play.
Hubbard'* Loss Fait
The loss of “Cac” Hubbard, v*teVan
end, who of all the squad had the afejHif
that always matched, the Oregon-fig^t,
put a great crimp in the Aggie teajp,
but . McFadden is filling his ntroea M

the other wing position. ‘•Cbuek”~is'‘Th
185 pound man who has won two' letter*
in track and can be depended upon to, get
down on punts with the host of-them.
The tackles for Saturday’s game .-art
Andy Crowell and Twister Swan. Swan
is a letterman in football and the b&ggett
mfcn on the team. Crowell placid on
last year’s rook team. He was respon
sible for the drop kick that beat Wash
ington Sun Dodgers at Seattle three "
Uhrrsty Christensen, an experienced
varsity player, and Fd Clarke of the 1919
rook squad play the guards. Christy
hits the opposition like a monster hall
and rolls everything ahead of him. Clarke
is one of the fastest men on the team as
well as the biggest and has a habit of
getting through the line and grabbing
the runner. Johnny Johnston started
jt the W. S. C. game at guard and will
probably be used in that position some
time during the Oregon game.
Scotty to Play End.
“Scotty” Scott is a reserve end
proved himself in the Cougar contest
when he speared a forward pass for 40
Bob Stewart and Ted Heyden play
center for Rutherford. Stewart is one
of the top notch centers on the coast and
has been mentioned as an all Pacific
coast possibility. Bob is an accurate
passer, and can get through the line and
tackle well. Heyden played part of the
game lust Saturday at Pullman.
Warren (“Nite”) Daigh and Babe
MiCart are the general utility men of
the team. Daigh plays either end or
guard. Babe plays tackle, fullback or
Big Harold McKenna or Hi Wood.will
work at fullback during the big game.
McKenna was the back that went
through the Cougar line for gains Satii
day and was responsible for the Aggie
touchdown against California. Wood is
a wonderful defensive player.
Hodler Expected to Start
While Duke Hodler and Joe Kasberger
will probably start at halves, Stan Sum
mers and Claire Seely, their reMefs, are
good men also.
Hughie McKenna will play quarter
hack for the Aggies Se^mday unless re
placed by Kasberger. McKenna is a
wonderful open field runner, and hosi
ers tacklers by his speed and shiftiness.
The punting will fall on Hughie Mc
Kenna or McFadden. McKenna has
been doing the punting this season and
gets them off well. McFadden’s kicks
are good for about 45 yards.
The O. A. C. student body is backing
its team to the limit. It will be a big
week at O. A. C. starting with the rally
tomorrow and the students from our sis
ter institution are expected to come and
share it with us.
