Though Mult nomah was credited with nine hits. Berg kept them well scattered, save in the third, in which frame the clubmen, with the assistance of an Oregon error, shoved three counters across the pan. Oregon Takes Lead.

Bill Collins stretched a single to right into a three bagger and Reinhart duplicated the feat a minute later, scoring Collins. This end ed the scoring as the next three men went out in one. two, three order. At tlie close of the first frame the handful of varsity rooters in the stands heaved a sigli of relief for if looked like an Ore- ! gon flag-raising. The suspense was not however, of long duration. Helmecke the visitors’ backstop and first man up in the second session, slammed a long throe-bagger into left which he stretched into a homer on Shields’ error at the plate.

Oregon Poet Gives Reporter Interview; Both Enjoy 14 I!y JEAN' STKACHAX. On the evening of May 12, the Shasta Limited stopped at Eugene, as usual, but an unusual visitor got off. Edwin Mark haui, one of Oregon’s most famous sons "as making, in his 60th year, his first 'isit to the .state which he left at the a"“ of five. Sweetness, goodness, puritv aiul strength is what the reporter saw m the face of the solid man, dressed in black broadcloth with a white silk shirt and soft white bow tie; and that is whv she asked tin* poet pholosopher. “Why <l°es a poet have such a benign, benevo iont look?” i'he poet threw back his silver-crowned h''ad. and laughed a joyous, youthful laugh. “Oh. my darling.” he said, still laughing and taking the reporter’s elbow in his firm hand, “I don’t know, but I s,ippose it’s because a poet sees so much “1 the beauty of life that he doesn’t have time for the sordid things. The function (l1 a poet is to seek out the unsuspected beauty of the world and reveal it to others.” “'What do von think of the new type r'f poetry that we get so much of now?” be was asked. “Well.” said the author of “The Man " *th a Hoe.” his peculiarly bright eve« atwiukle through his large-lensed glasses.

The trouble with much of the new type of verse is that it is not poetry,” The poet took off his glasses, closed his eyes and upturned his face so that Ids short silver beard no longer hid even a part of his soft white bow tie. “Poetry.” he continued, “is the product of the emo tion. The opposite of poetry is not prose, but science, the product of the intellect. There is thought in poetry too. but—it is like the torch—thought is the stock that holds the flame—emotion is the flame.” The poet’s eyes were open again, and he was smiling into the face of his ques tioner. who wanted, to know where the new poetry would finally get. “I think.” Mr. Markham said, “that the scope of poetry will be widened, so that it will take in the new and retain the old. The test of a poet is that lie produce poetry.” he repeated, “and when the free verse becomes poetry, we’ll ac cept it. Much that is written on wierd strange subjects, the striving after queer unusual effect is not poetry. It is not (Continued on Page 4.) ENTRIES FROM FOUR WES WILL VIE IT MEET SMf California and Stanford Not to Take Part In Con tests Here. GUARANTEE OF $2000 MADE TO COMPETITORS Students Will Be Required toj Pay Full Price of Admission. ^ Kntrios from four colleges will vie for honors at the Pacific Coast Conference track ami field meet to be held on Hay v.ard field on Saturday of this week. Neither California nor Stanford will have a team in the meet this year, as both institutions are sending their teams to compete in the I. C. A. A. A. A. meet. This will mean that the Pacific coast title for the 1921 season will go to either O. A. ( the University of Washington. Washington State College or Oregon, the four northern members of the conference. Meet Largest of Year. J ii<> meet will easily be the largest to he held on the Pacific eoast this year aud is the only time within six years that the 1 uiversity of Oregon will play hosts to the other members of the conference at the annual track meet. Oregon secured the meet over the other bidders this year at the meeting of the conference repre sentatives held last winter in San Fran cisco. Oregon has not had the privilege of entertaining the conference teams for several years and in addition to this the new oval which has just recently been completed on Hayward field is one of the finest on the Pacific coast, and Oregon now has the facilities for handling (he meet in first class shape. Expenses Are Guaranteed. An expense guarantee to the other teams of $2000 was necessary aud all the receipts over and above this amount other than those used to defray the ex penses of the meet will be divided equally among the participating institutions. As is the usual plan at the conference meets, the student body tickets will not admit to the meet, a general admission price of $1.00 for the bleacher seats and $1.50 for the grandstand will be charged the spectators, and students will be required to pay this admission price. An invitation was extended to the University of Southern California to par ticipate in the meet, here but as yet na definite answer has been received from the Los Angeles institution. Provided Southern California comes here, it is probable that Charlie Paddock, the star sprinter, will make the trip with their team. According to the present plans, a bronze placque will be awarded to the school winning the meet, and a silver tro phy cup will go to the winning relay team. Arrangements are being made to take care of a huge crowd and- from all reports there will be a big attendance, the meet being one of the attractions for the Junior Week-end. LAME DUCKS PLAN TO ORGANIZE LIVE CLUB Meeting Called For This Afternoon at 4:30 In Journalism Shack; Offices For Everybody. “The Limpid Order of the Lame Ducks will meet tonight to discuss new discov eries in the field of political science,” This may become a common announce ment in the future if a meeting of all candidates defeated in a student body election results in the perfection of an organization. This afternoon there will be a meeting of all “also rans” in the classroom of the journalism shack at 4:.°>0 for the pur pose of organizing a real defeated can didates’ club. Many of the erstwhile candidates of the recent campaign have expressed themselves as being highly in favor of such a club and it is planned to make a real live organization out of the wealth of material on the campus. Interested parties have been working on a constitution for such a body and from all indications the new group will become one of the real factors in cam pus life. One of the provisions of the tentative constitution is that there shall b< offices for everybody. Many other colleges have a “Lame Duck club but one has never before been organized here. “Minetta” and “Za la” Prove Temperamental; Coast Range Roads Make Both Take Count “Talk about the halt leading the blind,” exclaimed Hex Underwood, grinning broadly despite the fact that he said he had slept in the rain the night before on a hunting knife and three very crooked and prominent tree roots. “ ‘Za Za’ had only one speed but she had lights, so she led ‘Minettn.” who besides having only one speed was minus lights, down off the coast range Sunday night.” Early Saturday morning. Mr. Under wood and Dean John -I. Uandsbury. of the University school of music. Lett Jordan and Bob McKnight started for Triangle [ lake on the other side of the Coast | range. ‘Za Za’ and ‘Minettn,’ the Fords ' belonging, respectively, to Mr. Under wood and I)r. Uandsbury, were the ve hicles which, theoretically, were to bring them safely back to Eugene. The theory was pretty much a fact until after Sun day’s fishing at the lake they started up the hill on the way home. The chuck holes, hub deep mud and the corduroy road, minus the cords, had about broken the spirit of the two cars and both of them showed a great desire to quit. ‘Minetta’ positively refused to go in hig;i even when the road was good enough for that, and ‘Za J5h,’ not to be outdone could not be forced to run' in low. After several futile attempts to coax her up the long grade up to the high pass ‘Za Za’ was picked up almost bodily Mr. Underwood said, and turned around on a road where there was a “cliff on one side and a precipice on the other.” Her reverse worked nicely and she was backed the rest of the way up the grade over a road which Mr. Underwood said he had been almost afraid to drive for ward over before. “It was positively the most hair-raising experience I ever went through,” he said. Tn the menu time. ‘Minetta’ was grow ing weaker and weaker as the hill grew steeper. Dr. Lnndsbury says that Len Jordan and Rob MoKnight and lie ac complished the impossible in getting her up to the top. She could not pull herself so two pushed all the way up while the third kept her in the road. Finally, after climbing the entire grade by pushing her a few feet at a time, they also reached the summit, where they thought every thing would be all right. Everything was not all right, however No sooner had tin1 summit been reached than ‘Minolta's’ lights went out. Then it was that the old story about the halt and the lame was worked out again. ‘Za Zn, with lights, but now without brakes, and ‘Minetta.” without lights or brakes, started down the mountain ‘/a Za.’ being unable to stop except by using the reverse, would run ahead until she came to a little rise, when she could be started again without pushing, and would wait there for ‘Minetta.’ This didn’t last long, however. ‘Za Za* could not be held in. She ran on ahead, only stop ping when they tried to turn around tc go back to look for the other party and backed off into the ditch where the mud was hub deep. They stayed there all the rest of the night. The other came on down in the dark ness and ran into a mud hole about two miles beyond where ‘Za Za’ was stuck. Dr. Lnndsbury and the others rolled up in blankets there and camped all night Both parties arrived in Eugene yesterday morning. The original jinx hovered over the en tire trip, according to the claims of both Dnderwood and Lnndsbury. “Everything (Continued on l’age !>) Spearow Highest Man In Meet With 15 Points. The freshmen traeksters suffered de feat at the hand's of the O. A. C. rooks in the meet staged at Corvallis last Sat urday, by the score of 05% to 55%. As evinced by the results of the contest, it was far from being one-sided, the rooks coming off best in the track events, while Foster’s men took over (he high points in the majority of the field events. Ralph Spearow came out high man, with 15 points to his credit, having taken first in three events, the pole vault, high jump and broad jump. In the latter event he covered 112 feet, which beats the varsity jump in the meet on Hay ward field Saturday by seven inches. Albert Grilley, frosli speedster.' won fu'St place in both the 100 yard dash and the 220 yard dash. Ilis time in the 100 was 10 seconds flat, and in the 220 was 22.2 seconds. Risley secured third place for the frosli in the 4-10 yard dash, first and second places going to the rooks. The time was 52.2. In the half mile Beatie for the fresh men took third place, with two of the O. A. C. men coining in before him. while in the mile the freshmen did not place. Campbell picked third in the high hurdles with (). A. C. taking the two top places. The frosli were not able to piece in the low hurdles. . Spearow took first in the broad jump and Rosenberg second, leaving the third lor the rooks. In the pole vault the frosli took firftt and second places, tying the rooks for third. Hank’s men completely outclassed their opponents in the javelin throw, snaring all three places: Rosenberg first. Bar sons second and DoArmond third. SEE THE “C” ON THE “0” Mysterious Change Takes Place Over Week-end In Landmark On Skinners. Sometime during the week-end the “O” on Skinner’s butte underwent a change, in that almost the entire east portion of the letter mysteriously dis appeared. leaving a “C” in its plane. While the University of California was represented in the city last night in a concert by the men’s glee club, it is not thought to be the work of the southern visitors. 1 hough it is not likely the case, some bold that the recent rains have caused the change in the old familiar landmark. Fresh to Be Taught to Wield Pick and Shovel. That a college education is improved by a little experience in manual labor, is* the belief of the senior class, and in consequence they nre, on Friday morning going to instruct the freshmen in the use of the pick and shovel. Textbooks on the subject will be taboos but, according to W. K. Newell, superin tendent of properties, chances for prac tical experience will not be lucking. For those who may doubt his state ment, Mr. Newell has issued the follow ing list of improvements to be made: A general cleaning of the campus, levelling of the grounds around the Woman’s building and Susan Campbell hall, mowing the lawns, cleaning up of grounds back of the H. O. T. C. building, building of plank walks around the Woman’s build ing and around the Junior High build ings, cleaning the “dirty backyard,” lev oiling of the ground and cleaning up around the new commerce building, tear ing up of the old board walk behind the open-air gym and transferring it in bach of the grandstand on Hayward field. This list, is at the present time incomplete as Mr. Newell finished by saying, “There are plenty of other things to do, but f can’t think of them just now.” The senior oops say that this will be a popular course as cuts will be an un known term and the freshmen will show a super amount of energy. Any fresh man who will try in any way to discredit this statement will receive the paddle and water cure, which has for many years proved very effective.

Hobart ran flic two mile in 9 minutes. 53 and 2-5 seconds, while Tuck threw the javelin 193 feet and one inch. A national record was claimed for Tuck, but it was found that the national record is held by Jim Lincoln, of the New 1 ork Athletic club, at 197 feet. 514 in ches. This record was made September 25 of last year after Lincoln had re turned from the Olympic games. Tuck broke the Pacific coast record at Seattle last week when he hurled the spear 192 feet 4 inches, and then raised his own record here Saturday. Meet Hard Fought. The Oregon Aggies captured the long end of a 71 to 00 score Saturday, in n hotly contested meet. With two events yet to come off, the score stood 03 to ol in favor of the Aggies, and in view of the fact that the Oregon relay team had defeated the Aggies at the relay carnival in Senttle early this season, the relay was conceded to Oregon, according to the dope, and a great deal depended upon the javelin scores. Tuck took first in this event, but the Aggies captured second place and this tied up the meet for the visitors. Even the javelin places could not have won the meet however, as the varsity runners were defeated by the Corvallis team in the relay. The sprints were nil run off in Rood time considering the fnet that the run ners faced u stiff wind on the straight away. Snook of O. A. 0. took the cen tury event, with Larson and Jennings running a dead heat for second place, both crossing fTTe tape at the same mo ment. Snook also took first honors in the '-"JO yard dash, Hemen\vay and Ober teuffer finishing second and third, res pectively. Tom Wyatt and Itichards, of O. A.

TENNIS MATCHES ARE WON BY OREGON TEAM Smith and Wcsterman Defeat Multno mah Players In Doubles, But Lose Singles. Although Saturday whh an off day for Oregon in baseball and track, the Lemon Yellow tennis team, composed of Harry Wcsterman and Kenneth Smith, drove in u victory in their doubles tennis match aguiust the team from .Multnomah club. The Winged-.M players, Walter Goss and Oatlin Wolfard, are both ex-state champions and the victory of the Oregon pair is considered quite an event in local tenuis circles. The scores were 4-0. 11-5 and 10-X and the sets were said to be as fast, as any ever seen on the Uni versity courts. Wcsterman and Smith were not so fortunate in their singles, both men los ing to their opponents. These contests were much slower than the doubles and the victory of the Portlanders was due largely to their ability to place their shots, rather titan the speed which they used in driving. The scores: Goss beat Smith (5-4 and 2-(5: Wolford defeated Westerman 3-0. 0-3 and 0-1. When Oregon enters the Pacific coast tennis tournament this week-end their chances are thought good to come out near the top of the lists when the final srores are tabulated. Workouts are planned for every day this week.
