Failure to Win in Track Scarcity of Material STARS ARE NOT NEEDED -- Hayward Wants to Place Second and Third — (Continued from page one) be more, according to what Bill de sired to enter him in. In the last three years, Oregon’s cinder teams have been built along that line, with one or more good men and a lot of filler. Walkley was a firgt place man during his years in Oregon spikes, but he had no one to trail in second or third. Tuck was a good man, used to win his high school meets single handed, but in college competitions, one athlete can not compete in ten or twelve events and stand the gaff long, also there is a ruling against it. Where were the second and third place men? They were not there. 'Reason? No ma terial. This dearth of second and third place men has cost Oregon her track meets. A team can’t win on firsts every time, unless it cops all of them and a few other places. Last year was an Oregon year in the sprints. Oregon had tho material in Larson and Oberteuffer, both good men and sure of placing in the money. Orogon had and still has Spearow in the jumps and the pole? vault, but this is the last year that Oregon will have Spearow to cop 15 or more points singlo handed in track meets. For threo years Bill has tried to develop an understudy to the crack vaultbr, but no s»ccessor is in sight. Why? Material. It is the firm conviction of the vet eran track mentor, that ho can go through the ranks of tho non-atliletes and pick out hotter men than he has out in spikes. Bill is juBt about right there. There aro some good looking prospects doing their stuff in the fraternity armchair or kicking the paint off a sorority front porch in stead of hitting tho cinders out on Hayward. We havo heard that Walkley never saw the Bliower room of a gym until he came to college. Look at him. Not the idoal build for a trackman, but if you’ll look over the record books you ’ll see that ho got thore and in fair time at that, fast onough to hold the coast record. Now without doubt there are some more Walkleys running loose around here. Oregon was weak in the dis tances last year and looks weak this year, awfully weak. Oregon looks weak in the weights. Orogon looks weak in the hurdles. Kelsey and Hunt ought to go good, but a few more men to back them up wouldn’t hurt. Kelsey looks good in tho dashes, but hav6 we second and third men? Spearow ought to havo a great yoar in the jumps and vault, but havo we a man who cun approach his marks tho following year? Oregon has lvis ley in the quarter mile. A powerful man, but he couldn’t tako threo or four places in one race. If you remember back as far ai 1915 you’ll recall a great Oregon track team. Fee and Muirhead were always eligible for points in every field event and the hurdles. Moso Payne took care of the two-mile and even took a hack at the mile now and then, aided by Belding and some other strong point men. Oregon had some fine weight men also. Eylton Boucks looked bjg in the 220 and Bovlen was no slouch in the quarter, or Nelson in the half. Goreszky trotted a mean 100 yard dash. That was a team of strong first place men, backed up by some good second and third place material. A well balanced machine. Is it the coach? It can’t be. A coach has to know his onions to go across the pond with the Olympic team. Bill has done just that thing once or twice and stands all the chance in the world of going back next year. It isn’t the coach. As Professor Howe stated in his article to the Emerald, a coach no matter how good, can’t win his meets or football games without material. The same applies to track here as it does to football. Material is the word. Get the material and Hayward will put the team on the cinders. Other colleges get it. O. A. C. has had one of tho best balanced set of distance men ever seen in these parts. Oregon might just as well have. GRAPPLEflS HAVE BIC SCHEDULE 0. A. C., Pullman and Idaho Slated for Matches The varsity bonecrushers have a big schedule ahead of them this year. Tho local grapplcrs have been working out for some timo and will got down to strenuous business fol lowing tho holidays. Oregon tangle3 twice with tho Aggies this year and once each with the Idaho matmen and the Pullman muscle-stretchers. Tho Webfoot matmen travel to Moscow to meet tho Vandals and two days later grapple with tho Cougars at Pullman. Tho Iluskie crunchers como down to Eugene and work against the varsity. Coach Widmer has several voter ans from last year working out for the coming season. Colleges To Get Benefit of Most Recent Plans for Handling Contests Several things of interest to fol lowers of conference athletics came up at the coast and northwest con ference meetings. Besides schedul ing games for next year, many mat ters were threshed out, new mem bers elected to the conferences and a definite stand taken on the inter sectional game at Pasadena. The coast conference favored the plan of having the two institutions involved playing the New Year’s classic, handle all receipts and pay a reasonable rental for the grounds. Both the Navy and Washington, who meet in the East-West struggle for football supremacy this year, will pay their own expenses, handle the crowds at the game and split the profits evenly. Washington also plans to handle the alumni of all the coast confer ence members who wish to see the New Year’s tilt. Tickets for the contest may be secured from the graduate managers of each college or university, or by writing to the graduate manager at Washington, or by applying at the sales depart ment of the Navy-Washington game at Pasadena . The colleges handling the game will do away with the old method of bringing the colleges to Pasadena and having them play for nothing more than expenses. Some teams .have gone behind financially be cause of this. The stand taken by the conference will make it possible for the competing institutions to enrich their coffers considerably. The Montana Grizzlies were ad mitted to the coast conference and immediately made out a schedule which will bring them into close re lations with most of the coast schools during the 1924 grid cam paign. Oregon had a' gam^' scheduled with California, but the conference desired a change in the schedule and the game had to be given up.

Some dissatisfaction has been ex pressed over the scheduling of the early season game with Stanford. Oregon is doing no more than some of the other members of the con ference. Practically every institu tion is taking on a hard game on October 18. The jump to Palo Alto is a long one, but the University of Southern California is traveling to Corvallis to tussle with the Aggies on the same date. Idaho and Washington State have their little squabble on that date. Montana and Washington’s Huskies mix at Seattle and California is slated to battle Nevada. So Oregon has no more hardship imposed upon her than the other members. | Gonzaga is in the Northwest con ference after two or three years.of application. The Spokane Irishmen have put some great teams in the field in the last few football sea sons and with Do,ins at the helm m j t year, they ought, to give the conference something to worry about in the line of victories. i m RAINIER COAL CO. for High Grade Coal and Briquets HOTEL HOFFMAN Phone 412 EMERY INSURANCE AGENCY 37 9th Ave. West - Phone 667 EUGENE, OREGON The Round-Up contest with Whit man was passed up this year by Oregon, and the game with tho Mis sionaries will be pi lycu in Eugene October 25.

Pacific will be the opposition for the varsity October 11, and it ought to be some game, as the Badger3 are coming up all tiie time. HARVARD INSTALLS NEW COURSE FOR FRESHMEN Harvard University.—Harvard has installed a course designed to teach freshmen the proper methods of note taking, covering reading as The place for lunch. ! The place for dinner. The place for afternoon tea. The only place for Sunday supper. Call today and reserve a table by a window over the millrace Telephone : 30 The Anchorage signfents, etc., in short, what to, learn and what not to learn. Such a course is probably the greatest ■ need of all freshmen university stu- , dent. Too many rresnmen ran, not because they have not studied, but because they have studied the wrong thing or in the wrong way.
