COMMITTEE MAKING PLANS
Net Game Declared Important
to University Women
The need for more tennis courts on
the campus is an urgent one, according
to Miss Frances Alden, head of the
women ’§ physical education department.
The need is felt especially in that de
partment, as the three courts west of
the library are not a part of the physi
cal education department equipment,
but are under the student body man
agement. The girls who are majoring
in physical education are not learning
to play and to teach tennis.
The chief value of tennis in the col
lege girl’s life, says Miss Alden, is
that the interest stimulated in this
form of exercise in school life la9ts
into adult life. Other games, such as
basketball and volleyball, are rarely
taken up after leaving college, while
tennis is within everyone’s reach.
Tennis Knowledge Useful
The physical education department,
Miss Alden says, is striving to estab
lish lasting interest in physical activi
ties, and she regards it as unfortunate
that University women, when they are
graduated, are going back to the vari
ous parts of the country without a
strong interest in tennis. There are at
present fifteen seniors and seventeen
juniors in the department, and these
girls will be severely handicapped with
out a teachable knowledge of the net
Dr. John F. Bovard, Dean of the
physical education school, also says
that there is a crying need for more
tennis courts and facilities for outdoor
sports of all kinds. It is the aim of
the department that every student
should have an outdoor hobby of some
kind and the plan for the future is to
have recreation facilities approaching
that of Harvard and other great east
Dream Waits on Finance
This is a dream that will come true
as soon as the University is able to
finance such an undertaking. Dr. Bo
vard says that with a little regulation
manv more could use the courts than
do now. The intramural sports com
mittee is working out a plan whereby
the courts can be utilized to a better
advantage and a suggestion has been
made by Dr. Bovard that if the stu
dents using the courts were to pay a
small sum, say, ten cents an hour, it
would be possible to employ someone
to watch the courts, take care of the
nets, and the marking, and handle ap
pointments for the use of the courts.
Cooperation on the part of the stu
dents will be necessary until the Uni
versity is able to provide the necessary
GHOSTS OF OLD KINCAID
PASS IN PENNED REVIEW
(Continued from page one)
' “And there were Johnnie Beckett,
Lewis Pinkham, George Hug, Graham
Mitchell who was the original red
headed “Brick” Mitchell, and Dick
Smith who played so wonderfully for
us and then spent three years at Col
umbia where he was eaptain of the
team and played against all the big
eastern university teams. I remember,
too,” wc?nt on Professor Howe, “the
year 1905, when Bruce Shorts was
coaching for us. We had Frank Friesel
and Dan Kelly. They were great track
men, too, and Dan Kelly broke the
broad jump record, when he made
twenty four feet. The record stood for
rears,'but has since been broken.
“Our football record,” the professor
continued, “was largely given us by
Hugo Bezdek. He produced on Kin
caid field the famous ‘Pasadena team’
which beat Pennsylvania. That was
when ‘Shy’ Huntington played char

field was just an ordinary field with a I
fence around it. It sloped to the west, j
and the teams played on the^ slope for -
a few years until it was leased and |
graded by the University in 1903. In
those days, Oregon had only about two •
hundred students exclusive of the pre
paratory school, but her football team
competed with the teams from the large
universities on the coast.
“One of the most memorable games
Kincaid has seen” said Professor Howe,
“was in 1916 when we walloped O. A.
C. nine to nothing. We had a break
with the Aggies and feeling was so
intense that the games could not be
plaved on either home field—we had to
play at Albany. There had been two
tie games in succession and in 1916.
the first return to our home field, we
scored the 9 to 0 victory. It was a
great game—a great game, ’ smiled
the professor seeing in memory the
crowd of rooters voicing Oregon spirit
“I distinctly remember, too. a game
we got from Washington,” went on the
Professor’s reminiscence. ‘‘The boys
got the head bones of some animal, a
cow, I think it must have been, and
rigged it up so the jaws would open
and shut. They serpentined around the
field with the head operated at the
front of the line—they said they had
gut Washington’s goat. E«ery time!
the mouth of the skeleton head opened,
some one blared a horn, and the crowd
went wild. ’ ’
According to Professor Howe, Kin
caul has seemnueh glory and not much
gore. Only one serious accident has,
oecured there. George Goodall re
ceived an injury that resulted in the
' loss of his leg. Bill Hayward is a
name that hangs like a comforting pres
ence in the memory when the physical
condition of the boys is mentioned.
“Well,” said Dr. John Straub, dean
; of men, when asked to tell what he had
seen on Kincaid field, ‘ ‘ it would be
easier to tell what I haven’s seen there.
All the football and track for fifteen
years or more, all the rallies and the
freshman bonfire used to be held there.
We old-timers,” he mused, “are going
to miss Kincaid field. It has been in
timately connected with all the activi
ties of the University for so long.
After classes, at 4 o ’clock, we could
just take our hats and step out there
when something was going on—it’s
not so easj- for us to get out to Hay
ward field. But,” the dean finished,
“it was inevitable, Kincaid as an ath
letic field had to go. Progress of the
University demands that the ground be
given to buildings.”
