‘TINY’ SHIELDS ON ROAD
Of considerable interest to stu
dents of the University is the re
cent word received from the south
that “Tiny” Shields, former Oregon
grid captain, is now recovering
from an injury of the back receiv
ed while playing football 'several
As the result of a benefit foot
ball , game played -last Christmas
the entire proceeds going into a
fund to aid “Tiny to secure a new
back,” “Tiny” Shields is now at
Camp Kearney and is finally re
covering from the injury which has
kept him flat on his back for many
Camp Kearney is near San Diego
and is a United States army hos
pital. The doctors there are giv
ing “Tiny” a sunshine treatment,
supplemented by violet rays. As
the result of this care, his back is
rapidly healing and there is a strong
chance for his complete recovery.
A fund of $5038.71 was raised by
friends of “Tiny” Shields through
out the state, University, and many
contributions came from all over
the United States. The students of
the University played an impor
tant part in the success in raising
the fund, by contributing over
“Tiny’s” turn for the better is
evidenced in the extract from a let
ter received by C. O. Chatterton,
treasurer of the Tiny Shield’s fund,
from Shields on Monday; it fol
“I have been getting along pret
ty well, although complications
have arisen which may keep me in
bed a while longer. However, I
am gaining in strength a little
“I wish to thank the other mem
bers of the committee and your
self, and all who helped in that
Christmas-day game and who
bought tickets for it, for everything
they have done for me. My mother
is here with me and will stay un
til I can get on my feet again.”
“RED” GRANGE RECEIVES
The movies began calling to Har
old “Rod” Grange, football star
and hero of American boyhood, ac
cording to reports sent out from
filmland. “Red”, who was the
outstanding gridiron star of the
past season, has submitted to mov
ies tests and in the parlance of the
professional registered with a
“wow.” A “wow” in the movies is
the old time “howling success.”
It is rumored that the all-Ameri
can quarterback as offered $300,
000 for four pictures in which he
would be starred as a gridiron he
ro. Now “Red” comes out with the
statement that he contemplates
finishing his studies at Illinois be
fore deciding on a career other
than that of the gridiron.
Grange expects to work as an
ice delivery man during the summer
vacation. At present he weighs ap
proximately 175 pounds, five
pounds over his football weight.
The star quarterback also is sup
erintending his younger brother’s
debut on the gridiron. Garland, a
freshman at Illinois, according to
“Red” is an even faster man than
he himself is.
Whether or not Grange will
again be able to set the pace
when fall practice starts.
WAYNE MUNN DROPS
Wayne “Big” Munn, who held
the world’s wrestling championship
for three months, has dropped from
the limelight about as fast as he
came to the front. Since Munn
lost to Stanislaus Zbyszko, the 55
year old Pole, the former collegian
has not participated in a match.
Now word comes that Joe Steeli
er, scissors artist, and Zbyszko) the
present heavyweight wrestling title
holder, will meet at- St. Louis,
Decoration Day, May 30, for a $50.
000 purse and the title under terms
of articles which were drawn up.
If “Big” Munn had de
feated the Pole he would have been
in line for several $50,000 matches.
He was matched with “Strangler”
Lewis for a big purse but the bout
fell through after Munn’s defeat.

Gordon “Mickey” Cockran> former
student of Boston university, who
was a catcher for the Portland team
of the Pacific coast league, is a
“howling” success with Philadel
phia of the American league. Cock
rane, who is gathering his share of
hits, has added new pep to the
team and Connie Mack’s aggrega
tion is now leading the American
During his college days Coek
rane was predicted to be a star in
the big leagues and he was dis
covered by Tom Turner, who at that
time was scouting for Portland.
"Micky” played for the Beavers
last year and he was ready for fast
! company this season.
Cockrarie’s success may be partly
1 due to his college spirit and pep.

! COUSINS’ MATCH REFEREED
For the first time since the event
ivas started 70 years ago the recent
inter-varsity racquet match in
singles between Oxford and Cam
bridge, played at London, 'estab
lished a record in that the contest
ants were cousins and the referee
an uncle of the two rivals.
The two contestants were C. S.
Crawley, of Oxford. and L. G.
Crawley of Cambridge, while the
referee was H. F. Crawley, one of
the leading racquet and tennis
players of his generation. C. S.
Crawley won the match by three
games to one. The only game
which he lost was the first after
he had what seemed a sure winning
advantage of 13-3, his cousin stag
ing such a rally as to pull out a
victory at 16-13. Thereafter, how
ever, the Oxford Crawley always
held the upper hand, winning three
straight games, 15-8, 15-3, 15-8.

they will never be over-crowded.

STARS FROM QRCHESUS
Grace Sullivan Takes Part
Of Pierrette's Lover
Besides the two dramatic inter
vals, “A Night’s Mardi Gras” and
“The Lake of the Swans,” a series
of solo and group dances will be
presented at the Dance Drama Wed
Much of the dance talent for the
Drama has been taken from Orch
esus, an advanced dancing group.
Neva Service, whose solo numbers
will interpret the death song at the
close of a swan’s life, is a member
of the organization. Augusta Ham
ilton, another member of the Orch
esus group who is also well known
on the campus for her powers of
mimicry, will appear as the irre
sponsible Pierrette in “A Night’s
Mardi Gras.” Pierrette’s lover,
whose white costume stands out in
vivid contrast to the blaze of many
colors worn by the Mardi Gras
crowd, is perhaps the most strik
ing figure of all. Grace Sullivan,
famous on the campus as a star
athlete, has the part of Pierrette’s
lover. Having discovered in her
last year of college that she pos
sessed a natural talent in interpre
tative dancing, this appearance
Wednesday night will be both Miss
Sullivan’s debut in the dance world
and her farewell appearance in

Chick Rosenburg, captain of the
varsity, in a workout last night
regained partially his old form in
the pole vault. He has been vault
ing near 1.1 feet and he hopes to
do nearly that well in the meet.
“Chick” will probably be high

places in the javelin, pole vault,
and broad jump which he has sel
dom failed to make.
The 440 is going to be the ter
rific yard eater of the afternoon

hart of O. A. C. A sprint from the
