Varsity Upsets Dope and
Holds Aggies to Tie Game
on Hayward Field.
Teams More Evenly Matched
Than in First Battie of
Not only did the Oregon soccer team
upset the dope by holding the adept O.
A. C. players to a tie score in the fierce
ly contested game played on the slick
turf of Hayward field Saturday after
noon but twice Coach Dyment’s smooth
ly working forward line penetrated the
supposedly impregnable Aggie backfield
and shot the ball under the bar for tal
lies. Coach Wilkshire’s re-energized
squad came back strong in the second
half and the score in the second soccer
contest between the two teams this year
again ended Tn a tie„ this time 2-2.
The Oregon team started with a slow
ness that was far from pleasing to the’
several hundred rooters grouped in the
chilly grandstand, but when the. initial
rushes of the Aggie line bad been shat
tered by the unerring boots of Koerberl
and Patterson, fullbacks, and fighting]
“Morgie” Staton, the spectators were re
peatedly thrilled by the ever-increasing
speed and fight’ of the Oregon players.
Hardly had the game been in progress
eTgbt minutes wjien King, playing inside
right for Oregon, made the first score
by outwitting tbe Aggie backs. Before
the first half ended with a score of 2-0
in favor of Oregon. “Monte” Beyers
winged the ball under the unrights for
the other tally.
Borgcnsen Makes Difficult Shot.
Fighting mad and shorn of overconfi
dence, the northerners cnme haek strong
in the second half and frequently com
pelled Coach Dyment’s men to resort to
a defensive game. In a shot from a dif
ficult angle, Borgensen. playing inside,
right for O. A. O.. curved the ball against
a goal post and scored when the ball
rebounded over the Oregon line. Oifre.
the former Spanish player who relieved
T>avis, injured in the first half, scored
the Aggies second and final tally with d!
clear speedy shot past “Hay” Schmeor
several minutes before tbe game ended.
Tbe two teams appeared more evenly
matched Saturday than in the first game
played in Corvallis when the two squads
battled for 70 minutes without either
scoring. In that game the O. A. C. play
ers were continually winging the muddy
ball towards the Oregon goal and would
have scored but for the stellar work of
“Hay” Schmeer. Saturday tbe five
Oregon backs worked nicely with only the
seven-league boot of “Heinie” Koerber
overshadowing tbe brilliant playing of
his team mates. Staton played an ag
gressive and persistent game at center
halfback. Oregon’s forward line Showed
up well against tlie skilled Aggie back
field. McPherson, handicapped by a
sprained ankle, and “Hube” Jaeobberger,
crippled with an infected foot, worked
hard on the outer fringe of Oregon’s at
tacking force. “Al” Capps, playing his
first game of sorrec, held down the piv
first game of soccer held down the
pivot line position at centre and played a
nice game.
Blightey” Merr.vfield playing right,
fullback for the Aggie squad and bis
team mates, Tannessee Snook and
1 ifre, hardly excelled the pretty work of
their team mates.

General Tightening Up Advocated By
Committee and Changes to
be Suggested.
Probation rules will be made stricter,
and will be more uniformly enforced,
under a decision of the probation com
mittee of the faculty at a meeting last '
' uisht. at five o’clock in Dean Pyment's I
| office.
! Dean Pyment was authorized to make
j changes in the rules to be brought be-j
I foi e the committee at their next meeting.
with the object in mind of general j
I tightening up on University scholar-'
i ship. (
| The committee refused to let several
j students off probation whose names had |
I come up, and it was announced that a I
-similar policy will be followed in the
future. ]
The matter of withdrawals will be j
given full consideration in the changed
rules, and under the new system it will
be impossible to evade a failure by with- 1
drawing in the last part of the term.
One or two members of the glee club
who are on probation were refused per
mission to participate in any tours or
concerts during the Christmas holidays,
as theoretically they are not off proba
tion until the beginning of next term.

afternoon in the doughnut basketball
league, in which the S. A. E. five de
feated S-Maralda 17-14. In the last
few minutes of play the S-Maraldas made
a strong bid for the game annexing five
field goals in as many minutes. The Sig
Alphs made 14 of their points in the first
half and were unable to score a field
goal in the final period. Ford and MJoore
played excellent ball for the winners
while H. Gant and Shirley showed up
well for the losing quintet.

Bill began his football career in his
high school days at The Dalles. He

Frosh team of. 1910, Working alternately
with Bill Reinhart at quarterback. In
1917, Steer^ piloted the varsity eleven
from the quarterback position. Id the
fall of 1918, y^jiile in the service, he
played with the famous Mare Island Ma
rine team Which cleaned up about every
thing on the coast. Returning to Oregon
in 1919, Bill played a brilliant game at
quarterback which earned him a place on
the all-star teams and the captaincy of
the Oregon eleven for the 1920 season.
His work with the team this year was

Pre-Registration of Old Students
For Next Term Begun; Policy to
Allow Time to Make Schedules
Pro-registration for the winter term
began yesterday and the winter term
class schedules are now ready for distri
bution at the Registrar's office. This
will afford ample time for both profes
sors and students to discuss arrange
ments of classes before registration day,
January 3.
Under this new system, students will
have a period of eleven days before the
end of the present terra in which to con
sult advisers whenever it is most con
venient to all concerned.
This is the first time that the class
schedules have been made up so far in
advance of registration day and accord
ing to faculty members is due to the
present efficiency and systein at the Reg
istrar’s office which enabled them to ar
range in a brief time the large number of
class lists that are sent in from the
I many departments that make up the Uni

registration that the students win take
advantage of the additional time for con
sultation and advise with their profes

quickly and in this way nvo.-i trie usual
last minute rush on registration day
Which in the past has caused many stu
dents to lose much time by being com
pelled to stand in line at the administra*

Property Owner Voices Objection To
Use of Shrubbery From
^ Nearby Tract.
Three sophomores, John Gavin, Cur
tis Phillips and John Pearson, appeared
before the Student Advisory committee
Friday to answer to charges brought
by Dee Wright, supervisor of a tract of
land just east of Eugene. The students,
charged Mr. Wright, cut down and re
moved two good sized trees from the
property, which were used in the decora
tions at the sophomore dance last might.
Mr. Wright does not, object to having
,students make use of shrubbery upon the
property for decorative purposes, but
objected to the repeated incursions which
have been going on of late.
The matter was taken charge of by
the sophomore class as the three men
were acting as their authorized commit
During the hearing it developed that'
Pearson was on probation, and had be i
been a regular member of tbe sophomore
committee would have been automatically
expelled from the University for par
ticipation in a student activity while on
probation. It appeared, however, that he
merely accompanied the committee as a
volunteer and hence escaped dismissal.
Smearing of Letters “0. A. C.” Not Aot
of Collegians Is Belief.
Black buggy paint was the material
used by some vandal Sunday night to de-»
fare the senior bench. The letters “O. A.

bench and decorations of a similar nature
were painted on the seat. A committee
of frosh removed the paint yesterday
No clue has been found as to the iden
tity of the party or parties who are re

officials think that the work was do/b by
some high school students rather ■ than
by anyone actively connected with O. A.

The one outstanding feature of the
play was the quaint atmosphere that was
I attained in its presentation. The light
ing, the,costumes, the music and the
scenery contributed to this as well as
the manner in which the story is present

In the part of Pierrot, Norveil Thomp

mers, or wandering players. His inter
pretation of the mannerisms and motives
of the mummer prince was excellent, and
he carried the play along with a swing
that well fitted the performance.
i With a part into which she fitted with
ease and grace, Helen Casey, as Prun
ella, captured her audience from the
time she appeared for her lessons to the
final scene. She was charming to see
looking over the hedge at the passing
mummers, and later, in her return as a
begger girl she still carried the same
beauty which surrounded her from (lie
rrunella’s three aunts, stiff and digni
fied, easily shocked, who kept her

gers and Dorothy Wootton.
Introducing the play with a garden
scene, Victor Setter, as the boy, and
Claire Keeney, Ervin Ludeman and
Reuel Moore, as gardeners, added great-.

■through the play the gardener’s boy gath
ered chuckles with his “oh you little
birds, now fly please.”

mummers, including Doris Pittenger,
Marian Taylor, Irene Stewart, Marion

Adding to the humor of the play were

the production.
Classes Are Dismissed^ Heating Plant
Proves Weak,
The Education building began its
week’s work with cold feet and gently
chattering teeth yesterday morning. The
heating plant refused to function with
sufficient energy to send steam to that
far distant arm of its domain. Classes,
ineluding the whole University high
school, had to he dismissed for the fore
noon. Instructors in the building hope
the malady of the heating plant will not
become chronic. East year, the high
school students had several extra holi
days on account of cold rooms.
Early Season Games Not
Passed by Pacific Coast
Conference Meeting.
Two Games, California and
Washington Will Be In
Eugene, Says I#ist.
Oregon will not play Stanford Univer
sity in football nest year, aeeording to
Marion McClain, graduate manager, who
has returned from Berkeley, where with
' Professor H. C. Howe, Bill Hayward
and Bart Spellman, he attended the meet
ing of the Pacific coast conference. The
game with Stanford was scheduled by a
committee, which favored four confer
ence games during the season, but just
before the close of the conference, the
delegates voted to go hack to the old
three-game schedule. Oregon thus will
not play Stanford nert year.
Southerners Opposed. .
Delegates from the northwest are said
to have been opposed to the four gunb
schedule, while those from the sonth
favored it. The southern institutions,
according to Oregon representatives,
would play northern teams only early in
the season. California and Stanford
wished to play their game late in the sea
son, demanding also a week’s rest before
that game. This made it imperative (bat
any games scheduled between the into
southern institutions and those of tjie
north be early in the season. .'
Delegates from Oregon opposed this
arrangement, arguing that tie earli|p
opening date of the southern schools
lowed teams representing those inhtitu
tions much more time for training V.*\d
preparation. According fi "an interview
given last Saturday la Portland, “Shy”
Huntington, Oregon mentor, said:
“The northern elevens under the fouv
game schedule arrangement would hhve
met a California team at the tdp df’h#
form, after she had a month and a half's
practice, just when we ourselves were in
the formative state and at our wpr«,
Washington State was to have plhyefl
California at Berkeley, October 22, That
couldn’t have been anything but a gift to
California, which would have been in full
stride while Washington State would
only have been starting the season. Ore
gon was to havet raveled to Palo Alto
gon was to have, traveler) to Palo Alio
though we played her there this season, ’
and come home for a game the very neat
Saturday against California. That would
have been another gift to California."
Announcement Wrong.
The four-game schedule was definitely
tabled this year, and the old three-game
arrangement adopted. The game witicb
Oregon was to have played with Stanford
was never arranged, although previously
announced as officially scheduled. The
revised schedule is as follows:
October 29—California, at Eugene. ■
November 12—Washington, at Seattle.
November 1D-—O. A. C. at Eugene.
Graduate Manager McClain announced
last night that other games, will be sched
uled soon with members of the northwest
conference, and opssibly with a nori
conference team.
U. of W. May Drop Gama.
University of Washington, Seattle,
December 4.—That the scheduled foot
ball game with O. A. C. at Corvailip next
season may have to be dropped way the
word returned by Darwin Meiseest, grad
uate manager of the A. S. TJ. W. from
the Pacific coast conference meeting.
Inability of obtaining a unanimous vote
on a four - game policy is the reason
given; Oregon withholding consent to
enter in an agreement that would give
its schedule four conference games in
stead of three.
In the event that Oregon cancels its
game with California, it is believed all
conference games on that date will be
dropped and Washington will be free to
line up a home game for a stustitute.
The University of Nevada is preparing
to launch a drive to secure funds to pay
for the sweaters which are to be award
ed to the football men at* the end of the
