The fiual score, after numerous Lemon
Yellow rallies had failed to bring in the
winning runs, was Multnomah 5, Ore
gon 4.
Art Berg went cue route for the varsity
and pitched a stellar brand of ball. The
big portsider had a world of control,
giving out no walks and whiffing eight
of the Winged M sluggers. 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.

canto, started the scoring with a homer
in the vicinity of left field. Bill Collins
stretched a single to right into a three

a minute later, scoring Collins. This end

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- !

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. Berg had little difficulty with the
next three up, retiring two on strikes
and beguiling the third into an easy

On the evening of May 12, the Shasta

Kntrios from four colleges will vie for
honors at the Pacific Coast Conference

Neither California nor Stanford will have
a team in the meet this year, as both
institutions are sending their teams to

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

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

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

definite answer has been received from
the Los Angeles institution. Provided
Southern California comes here, it is

Meeting Called For This Afternoon at
4:30 In Journalism Shack;

This may become a common announce

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

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

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.

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.

hurdles with (). A. C. taking the two
top places. The frosli were not able to

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

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.

Arthur Tuck Establishes New
Mark of 193 Feet 1 Inch
In Javelin Throw.
Walkley, Collins, Bowles, Tuck
and Phillips Take Firsts
For Lem on-Yellow.
1 wo Pacific const records were broken
at the annual dual meet between the Uni
versity of Oregon and the Oregon Agri
cultural College held on Hayward field
Saturday, Arthur Tuck, of Oregon, break
ing bis own record of 192 feet. 4 inches
in hurling the javelin, and Alvin Hobart
of O. A. (\, breaking the record of 0
minutes, s':! and 4-5 seconds, which was
formerly held by Wells, of Stanford, for
the two mile run. 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

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.
