PLAY 11-11 TIE
Two Nines Battle in Mud;
Game Called in Sixth
So Visitors Can Leave
Varsity Scores Five in First;
Bittner and Bliss Each
Knock Home Run Drives
Rain may be a canceller of ball
games in the big leagues, but it
made little difference in the
scheduled contest between Wash
ington and the varsity yesterday.
Though the well-known Jupe Plu
vius poured down copious gobs of
drenching moisture upon diamond,
players, umps, spectators, and
scorekeepers, the two nines staged
an orgy of base hits, errors, and
mud that would be hard to equal.
After five and a half innings of
hard-fought playing, the score re
mained deadlocked, 11-11, and the
fracas was called in order to enable
the visitors to catch a train for
First Innings Thrilling
More thrilling baseball was
crowded into the hectic five inn
ings than in seven ordinary games.
The rain began about 3 o’clock,
and the game started shortly after
ward. As the raindrops pattered
down faster and faster, base hits
crashed out after base hit in rapid
succession, and runs came in in
droves. The first inning saw the
varsity go after Pitcher McDonald
like a g)ang of hungry tom cats
after a fat mouse. A walk to
Sorsby, singles by King and Ross,
tree transportation to uook, ana a
shrieking home run by Bittner
brought in five runs, and sent Mc
Donald to the bench for shelter.
Coach “Tubby” Graves hurriedly
inserted his giant right-hander,
Tesreau, and further damage was
halted for that inning.
Came the second canto, and the
Huskies repeated the varsity per
formance with a little more elabor
ation. Hunk Latham was in the
box for the first time this year,
and the visitors took a great liking
to his delivery in this frame. Com
bining four safe hits with a couple
of errors and two walks, they ran
wild around the bases and crossed
the platter seven times before the
inning was over. The entire team
batted around, Frayne and Beckett
hitting twice.
Bliiss Makes Second Homer
Nothing daunted, Reinhart’s
men came right back and tied the
score in their half on two errors
and a hit by Sorsby. The scoring
continued in the third. Washing
ton garnered two runs on walks to
Boyd and Tesreau and Ringle’s
error. Jack Bliss evened the count
for the Lemon-Yellow when he
drove one of Tesreau’s fast ones
for the second homer of the day,
scoring Bittner.
One apiece in the fourth and
likewise in the fifth. With the
score 11-11 in the last half of the
fifth ana the bases loaded, the var
sity had a glorious chance to cop
the game, but Tesreau forced Bitt
ner to ground out to third for the
final out.
Latham “Comes Back”
In the first half 'of the sixth,
Latham performed on the mound
like a Walter Johnson. After
Beckett had opened the frame with
a' long three-bagger, the big boy
proceeded to strike out Matlock,
Jackson, and Tesreau, and Beckett
died on third. The varsity was
prevented -from getting their turn
at bat because of the time limit.
Oregon’s showing in these two
games with the Huskies makes it
evident that the varsity will make ,
things hard for every team in the |
conference this year. The next
battle for Reinhart’s crew is with
the highly-touted O. A. C. nine,
which broke even with the Huskies

The junior women captured the
class volleyball championship when
they defeated the senior team, two
games out of three, yesterday
afternoon. The all-star team will
now be selected and will be an
nounced later this week by Pearl
Pyritz, head of hiking.

Tournament Participation
Off for Lack of Funds
Golf at the University of Oregon
received a decided set-back when' it
was learned yesterday that the Ore
gon two-man- team will not be able to
compete in the Pacific coast inter
collegiate golf tournament at Seattle,
Washington, this year. Because of
the lack of necessary funds to» fi
nance the trip north, Oregon is the
only college on the coast that will not
be represented at this meet which will
be held on May 29, 30 and 31.
George Bronaugh, instructor and
coach of golf, has cancelled the golf
tourney, scheduled for Miay 15, 16
and 17 at the Eugene Country club,
which was for the purpose of picking
the team to represent Oregon at the
northern meet. There will be no con
tests or meets at Oregon this year,
according to Bronaugh, who states
that the men out for golf this year
will keep in good shape so as to be
able to furnish some real competition
in the tournament next year.
Oregon has over 30 men out for
golf, with some promising candidates
included in this list. Some of the
strong bidders for representing the
school were: George Bronaugh, mem
ber of last year’s team, Jack Mar
shall, a Portland player of a strong
calibre, and Tom Mahoney.
Plans are now being formulted for
extensive golf competition at the Uni
versity for next year. Elimination
tournaments will be held for the men
as well as for the women, and men,
as well as for the women, and with
strong material found in the fresh
man class of the women and men, a
strong team with also a good mixed
squad should result.
Miss Helen Price, secretary of
the Girls’ Reserve, is visiting the
University high school and will ad
dress the assembly there this after
noon at 2:15. Miss Price is here
with the idea of arousing interest
in the Girls’ Reserve among the
high school girls, anl she will tell
something of the work of the or
ganization. She hopes to create in
terest in the growth of the Girls’
Reserve here, the local membership
of which as yet is rather small.

Annual Affair; Generous
Monetary Prize Offered
At hotly contested tryouts yes
terday in Villard hall, Claude Rob
inson was chosen to represent the
University of Oregon at the Tri

and one of the most important
intercollegiate oratorical contests
of the year, which will be held on
this campus May 22, between the
Universities of Washington, Idaho
and Oregon. The subject of Robin
son’s oration was “The Open
Mind.” Six contestants turned out

This oratorical contest is held
annually between the three out
standing universities of the North
west. A generous monetary prize,

team defeated the Eugene high team
1 by a score of five to three in the
game on the Eugene high field Satur
day. The pitching of Burton, of Uni

’score during the entire game. He
struck out 16 men during the game.
The University high players made

Varied Program Featured
In Joint Glee Club Concert
By Josephine Bice
An exceptionally good program was
presented at the joint concert of the
Washington State college and the Uni
versity of Oregon glee clubs last night
at the Woman’s building. If the
program had not been exceptionally
well planned, the length would have
proved tedious; but as it was, the
interest of etch number kept the
audience appreciatively alert during
the entire performance. The W. S.
C. Glee club, which won the prize at
the Intercollegiate club contest held
’n Portland Monday, is a well trained
group of singers. They sing to
gether well and have fine voice quali
ty as a group. Their singing is fin
ished and at the same time vigorous.
The University of Oregon Glee club
sang with their customary skill. Their
choral technique is very ably worked
out; their very soft singing fieing es
pecially good. There was a pleasing
air of collegiate swagger about the
evening’s performance that sus
taned the animation of the crowd.
The opening chorus of the W. S.
C. Glee club was an unforgettable
number. The spirited group “Viking
Bong” by Coleridge Taylor and “State
[College of Washigton” by Butter
field did much for the success of the
The Kashmiri song by Woodford
Finden was the U. of O. opening
'number. Their rendition of it was
artistic. One of the finest moments
of the program was the solemn “The
Souls of the Righteous” by Salter.
This was received in silence in honor
of the memory of Ronald Reid.
The IT. of O. Glee club sang two

Faculty Issues
Warning Against
Shooting Rapids
Canoeists Cautioned
About River
Students are again warned by
the student advisory committee
of the faculty of the danger of
canoeing in the rough water near
the head of the mill race. Sev
eral fatalities have resulted from
students failing to observe the
University rule in this regard.
There is a long-standing rule
requiring suspension of students
for “shooting the rapids.” The
committee does not wish to cur
tail legitimate student recreation^
but it does feel it necessary in
the interest of protecting stu
dents from accident and the Uni
versity from criticism for negli
gence to call to the attention of
the students the following:
1. No student who is not a
good swimmer should venture
into the river in a canoe.
2. Venturing into the rough
water near the rapids, whether
or not technically ‘ ‘ shooting the
rapids,” is for anyone not an
fepepert in handling a Icai^oe a
fool-hardy act.
Varsity and Frosh Relay
Men to be Picked
At 4 o’clock this afternoon the
final tryouts for the members of
the varsity and freshmen relay
teams will be 'held on Hayward
field. Only one member of the
varsity team remains to be chosen
but 15 more men will probably bo
picked to complete the frosh squad.
Risley, Rosbraugih, pnd Kinney
are three of the men picked for the
varsity mile relay team which will
represent Oregon at Seattle next
Saturday. The fourth man will be
pickd tonight from the remaining
quarter-mile contenders. This will
be the only team sent to the Wash
ington relays, according to Bill
Hayward, and should give a good
account of itself for these mien
have been doing the quarter in fast
time. Much will depend on the
ability of the fourth man.
Saturday the first-year squad
will compete with the rooks at Cor
vallis in a relay carnival of their
own; and all but three of these
men will be picked by the elimina
tion process tonight. Westerman,
Extra and Holt by their showing
last Saturday in the yinfyer-cl|isjs
meet demonstrated to Coach Hay
ward’s satisfaction that they were
perfectly capable of holding their
own in any form of competition—
consequently they do not have to
perform today. Since. Bill will
take about 18 men with him, much
depends on the results of today’s
The relays at Corvallis will con
sist of the following events: 440,
1 mile, 880, 3 mile and a medley
of 1 and 7-8 miles. The three-mile
event will be run by two 880 men
and two milers. The medley will be
run by one 220, one 440, one 880
and one mile runners. Bill says
that he hopes not to be forced to
run any mlan in two races, but
that it may be necessary.
Two husky miners will rustle grub
for a hungry mob of tenderfeet near
the nicotine tree this morning. These
bad men from the mountains will lay
down their shooting irons and flirt
pancake dough into greasy skillets.
Woe to the gunman who fails to flip
the flapjacks high, for the nicotine
tree makes a good lynching tree, says
the sheriff of the Condon club.
The miners will pitch camps early
in the day. A roaring fire will be
kept going despite the wind. Siz
zling flapjacks will be passed out to
the crowd. The rough and ready
garbed men are the aspiring neoph
ytes of Condon club section of the
Oeelogical and mining society. E. P.
Cox and Bryan Hendon are the en
tertainers in this pre-initiation stunt.

Out for Council Jobs

results there J . XM
weight i, b d considerable
eifeht in the matter of who will
be allowed to run for A. 8 U O
positions. ° u* "•
The leading question of the day
however, was, “Who will run f£
student body president!” It Waa
not answered until evening, Md
then only in part, when Clyde Zol
afs’ of ‘he school Of business ad
knowlrati°n’ made hiS intention«
Candidates for other important
offices also came forth. Don
Woodward, managing editor of the
Emerald, did the expected and
handed his name in as a candidate
for the editorship, although there
had been some talk of his running
for the presidency.
Oregana Job Contested
Augusta ^ DeWitt ’a main source
of opposition for the editorship of
the Oregana apparently came to
light when Frances Simpson, of the
Emerald and Oregana staffs, came
out for the editorship. Buth Akers
is unopposed as yet for the secre
There has been so much ques
tioning as to the possible candi
dates for student body presidency
that the vice-presidency has been
neurly forgotten. The heavy com
mittee work, which a vice-presi
dent must do, makes this office an
important one. Hesdon Metcalf,
now a member of the student coun
cil, is in the race, according to an
nouncement made last night.
The first two candidates for stu
dent council to make their inten
tions known are Martha Shull and
Laverna Spitzenberger.
Zollarg Is “Darkhorse”
Zollars’ announcement of yester
day evening substantiates what the
political gossips said about this
being a “darkhorse year.” To most
folks, Zollars is a real “dark
horse,” just as MacGregor was in
his year.
A look at Zollars ’ record shows
the darkness of his “darkhorse
dom” less black than many think.
For instance, ho is president of
Alpha Kappa Psi, professional
business fraternity. He is a mem
ber of Beta Gamma Sigma, nation
al honorary commerce fraternity,
and he belongs to Pan Xenia, in
ternational foreign trade group.
His contact with student body af
fairs has not been entirely lack
ing, either, for he filled in this
year on the student council in the
place of Milton Brown. Friends of
Zollars say that his work in the
U. 8. National bank, a posfition
which has put him through the
University, has given him contacts
with older men that will be to his
advantage. Zollars is a Sigma Nu,
and his home is in Portland.
Jones Still Mentioned
A week ago the campus thought
that Tapfer and Gillenwaters would
be the opposing candidates for
presidency. Tapfer surprised the
campus by refusing to run. Gillen
waters is just back from a trip to
Portland, and although he is sot
willing to commit himself, Thurs
day morning may see him in the
race. Randall Jones is still being
talked considerably, and yester
day sww his strength grow pereep
tibly. Whether 'or not he would
be willing to take the job if he
could get it is another matter. If
