Doughnut Baseball Started;
Delta Theta Phi Out
The doughnut baseball series got un
der way at 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon
on Cemetery Ridge, when the Bachelor
don team ruined all chances for cham
pionship of the Delta Theta Phi nine,
by defeating them 8-3. The seven innings
of play were characterized throughout
by many errors and much harmless swat
ting on both sides. Throughout the
greater part of the contest the Bach
elors held a slight lead over their op
ponents, but the final victory was very
uncertain until the last man was out.
The winners started things off by scor
ing two runs in the first inning. In the
fifth inning Bachelordon put three more
runs across and their opponents one,
making the score 6-3 in favor of the
former, and in the sixth they added two
more, making the final score 8-3. The
losers were unable to add more to their
list in the seventh, noue of the first
three men up getting to first. The line
ups follow:

no more games played

TTio dual swimming moot scheduled

Hue to a conflict in dates, the previous
time of June 4 had to bo canceled, and
the contest set for a week later.
Six events are on the program, not in
cluding the water polo game which will
be staged after the speed and distance
events. The events include the 30 yard
and 100 yard sprints, the 200 yard swim
100 yard back stroke .and four-man 200
yard relay, and plunge for distance.
The arrangements for the meet are
being handled for Oregon by Joe Hedges
student instructor in swimming. Both
Hedges and Cody, of Multnomah, pre'
diet that all of the races will be fast.
So even is the dope that it is practically
impossible to make predietions as to
the outcome of many of the events.
Two Captains Named.
“Bus” Douglass will head the swim
ming team in the Multnomah meet and
Mickey Wilsey will captain the polo
players. These men were selected at a
meeting of the swimming team Tuesday
Oregon’s chances are assured only for
some of the places in the various events
Douglass is expected to place at least
second in the 200 yard swim, which is his
best race. Mickey Wilsey, Lyle Palmer
and “Hap” Hazard will enter in the
sprints, but will have some lively compe
tition from the clubmen at the hands o?
Harrison. Colly Wheeler and Alonen.
The Lemon-Yellow is assured of two
places in the 200 yard back stroke. Mick
ey Ringler can be counted on for second
place and George Neil for third. Jack
Poboehenko. of Multnomah, who is the
holder of the northwest record for this
distance and stroke has been counted on
to finish first.
Relay Appears Even.
The relay race as yet seems an even
break, with Oregon perhaps holding the
edge on the argumentt. The team of
four men will be picked from Douglass
Wilsey. Hazard. Palmer and Neil.
The polo team has been practicing reg
ularly under the guidance of Fred “Duke”
Howard. “Duke” was a member of the
A. E. F. water polo team and is con
sidered one of the crack players on the
coast. His work has been handicapped
by many minor obstacles during the past

The final dress rehearsal of “Nothing

the critics who attend are of the same
as those who have already seen the stag
ing of the senior play, they will be en
thusiastic boosters for the production.
Most of the houses on the campus
have already planned to have two or more
frosh in line at the ticket window of the
Eugene theatre a dozen or more hours
before the box office opens at 10 o’clock
Friday morning.
The two latest announcements in re

tickets will not have the privilege of re

With lack of practice, due to bad
weather, as their main obstacle, Coaches

Lemon-Yellow tennis pair into the first
rounds of the Pacific Coast Conference
tennis tournament this afternoon.
Local dopesters have it that the race
for top place is between Washington

at 2. During the contest, which will last
for three days, each man will play sin
gles and every team will have a doubles
match to start things off. The Oregon :
coaches will probably act as judges.
In speaking of the tournament. Coach
Sam Warner says: “These games will
be easily the fastest played on the local
courts. The Oregon players desire that
you support them just as you would a
football team. They are going to do
their best and although they hardly ex
pect to win the meet, they have a chance
to come out near the top. We are not
charging to see the meet and it is hoped
that a good shore of the students will
turn out.”
juntos ana l .evy, ot (Jaliforma, and
Webber and Heale. of W. S. C.. arrived
yesterday afternoon and the other teams
are expected this morning.
The Oregon Aggies will be represented
by two entries, Ken Joy and Caldwell,
while the University of Washington has
four men to enter in the tournament.
These are Don Waller, Marshall Allen.
Bill Taylor and Lang. Allen is rated as
the best man on the Sundodgers’ team.
He defeated Phil Neer at Stanford last
year, but he in turn was defeated by
.Timmy Davies of the Stanford team.
Lang, of Washington, was the champion
of the frosh team at the northern school
last year.
The Stanford entries of Neer and Da
vies are expected to show up in great
form. Phil Neer, of the Cardinals, at
one time held the northwest title and at
present holds the title for the state of
Oregon and the British Columbia dis
trict. Davies and Neer arrived in the
north from Palo Alto the first of. the
week and have been playing a series of
exhibition matches in Portland.
Carroll Webber and Merrill Heale. who
are representing Washington State Col
lege. have already defeated the Univer
sity of Idaho team in a dual match at
Pullman early this season and they will
no doubt give a good account of them
serves in the matches here.
Smith and Westerman, of Oregon
showed that they are to be reckoned
with in the tournament by their defeat
of tlie Multnomah Club players here last
Saturday, and the California and O. A. C.
teams are considered among the best.

Unofficial Action Is Taken By
New Executive Council
Webster Ruble, for the past two years
a member of the business staff of the
Emerald, was named manager of the
Oregon Daily Emerald for the coming
year at an irregular meeting of the now
Executive Council last night. The vote
was unanimous in favor of Ruble. Other
candidates were Harris Ellsworth, Emer
ald manager in 1010, Oregana manager
in 1020. and manager of the Lemon Punch
this year, and Arne Rue, a junior who
has had experience in management of
other newspapers, and is at present con

of the Emerald, and last year was ad

The election of the new Emerald man
ager necessitated the calling of the first
meeting of the new executive council
since the adoption of the new constitu
tion. Since the faculty ’members have
been appointed, but no alumni member
elected, the appointment of Ruble will
necessarily have to be affirmed by the
council when it functions properly next
“Ruble hns shown by his consistent
work on the business staff that he hns
the makings of nu excellent manager,”
said Raymond Vcstcr, present mannger
of the Emerald. "There is no doubt that
next year’s Emerald will be successful
under the managership of Ruble.”
Ruble will take over his new duties
upon the completition of the Emerald’s
present year, on .Tunc 4. In order to
enable him to go ahead with plans for
next year, it was deemed advisable to
have the council appoint a manager im
mediately instead of waiting for a regu
lar meeting of that body next fall.
