In First Round
Of Net Tourney
Huskies, Stanford Aces,
Beat Their Opponents
Okerberg and Neer Star
WITH the northwest tennis title
depending on the outconte of
the second doubles match, the last
t n e
tne a ay,..
Plummer an d
Brown of the Hus J
kies overcame a 5
to 1 lead in the,
first set and de- '
feated Edge and
Hartman of Oregon,:
This marks the:
second time in as
many years, that
cinched the north- UKemerg
ern championship, and left Oregon
as runner-up. Yesterday was dark
and cold, taking the keen edge off
the players; throughout most of the
matches a slight drizzle fell, and at
one time players and spectators were
forced to scurry for shelter from a
near cloud-burst. The singles were
just getting well started when the
the deluge fell and play could not
be resumed for more than an hour.
Huskies Lose by Default
Neer and Okerberg were the out
standing performers for the Web
foots. Necr’s steadiness and accu
rate placements, and Okey’s blind
ing net work and service were al
most unfathomable. The style of
play used by these two men is a
direct contrast, but paired together
they make an ideal doubles combi
nation. Neer is very cautious and
takes advantage of every break,
coming up to the net only when
there is a certain possibility of mak
ing a kill. Okerberg follows his fast
twisting service to the net, and is
all set for a smash. His long reach
and ability to cover the court make
him a dangerous iman to lob to.
Neer, playing won from
Dranga by default. Neer took the
first sot easily, 6-1, but Dranga was
coming to the front in the second
set, and was leading 2-1 when the
rain came. Dranga had motored
from Seattle Thursday, and the ex
posure affected his eyes, so that he
was unable to continue his match
with Neer, being forced to drop out
of the doubles.
Okerberg won a brjiliant ' three
sot duel from Clark, 6-1, 2-6, 6-3.
Clark found a weak spot in Okey’s
defense and hammered away at his
back-hand to win three straight
games and the second set. Oker
berg’s aggressiveness and his work
at the net outshone his back hand
weakness and enabled him to take
the next sot and the match.
The Huskies triumphed in the
other singles matches, winning from
Hartman, Edge, and Cross. Hartman
took the first set, 7-5, after the rain
had necessitated a halt. Plummer
rallied in the next two, however,
taking them both by 6-2 margains.
Edge, Webfoot man, lost to
Schwartz in straight sets. The first
sot went to Schwartz at love, but
Edge made a fight of it in the sec
ond and carried it to 7-5. Cross
came out on the short end of
a three set affair with Brown. Cross
went through the first set in whirl
wind fashion, winning it 6-2. Brown
seemed to find new life in the in
terval between showers and won
the next two, 6-4 and 6-3.
Oregon Doubles Good
Oregon's first doubles combina
tion, Neer and Okerberg, had little
trouble in downing Schwartz and
Clark of the Huskies in straight
sets, 6-2, 6-3. The Webfoot pair
have remarkable team work^ and
their stroking was as near perfect
as the rawness of the weather would
permit. They should give Ogden and
Herrington, of Stanford, a stiff bat
tle when they meet today.
The powerful Cardinal team made
a clean sweep of the Aggie raeket
weilders. In the singles, no Orange
man was able to win more than two
games in one set. Speerows and At
kinson managed to take four games
in the second set of their doubles
match with Herrington and Ogden.
Oregon will meet the Cards at 9:00
this morning and the Aggies at

Four University Students Conquer
Roaring McKenzie on Canoe Trip
Narrow Escapes, Shooting Rapids, Catching Fish,
Prove Intensely Interesting
'The tumultuous upper McKenzie
siver was conquered for perhaps the
'first time in history when Amos
Burg, Prince Helfrieh, John Mean
iibwA Frank Sparks, University stu
dents, rode the raging river for
over 30 miles from McKenzie bridge
to Deerhorn ferry last week-end.
Helfricli, who understands the
treacherous river like a brother, es
corted the canoe with his own boat,
accompanied by Sparks.
For the entire distance, the river j
presents a furious aspect, brawling i
and boiling along a narrow and rug- I
geil channel, cascading over .'10 vie- j
lent rapids, and tossed the canoe and
traml about like bits of driftwood. !
At times both crafts were almost
buried in the roaring surges ns they
glided safely among the ragged j
The McKenzie, fed by the glaciers
on the Three Sisters, heads in Clear
Sake at 3.T0G feet elevation above
She sea and thunders 8(1 miles on its
wild onrush to the Willamette. A
short distance below the lake it
• isappears into the McKenzie lava
k*-ds for three miles, finally spout
ing out of a crevasse nud resuming
Sis boisterous career by descending
■over the three pitches of the South
cm Paeific falls, some sis miles above
t>hc embarkation point of the four
At many of the rapids a portage
was impossible, owing to the pre
cipitous banks and the rich ver
dure that hung into the river and
swept back and forth in the roar
ing current, lloth crafts ran every
Tapid in the river. The men took
photographs at most of them which
will be used as illustrations in an
article that Burg is preparing for
The Martin Kapid, 23 miles below
McKenzie t bridge, and doomed, it
seems, to bo the scene of many dis
asters on the river, offered the most
promising pirospects of ending the
trip with n bath for the entire par
ty. it was safely run by the eanoe
lifter. Helfrieh and Sparks had made
a successful descent in the boat.
The canoe in running the Gate
Greek rapid played such antics iu
riding the smoking crests of the
combers that at times Bean, who
was the steersman, could not roach
the water with his six foot paddle;
other times the water was up to his
elbows. Shortly below this place an
unnamed rapid was christened the
“Jumping Frank” bv the party,
after Frank Sparks “Who was tossed
several feet into the air when the
boat jumped the crest of a giant
comber, lie was sitting in the stern <
of the canoe when he went into the
air and landed head first in the bow.
According to Helfrieh who has
fished the river since he was old
enough to eat beefsteak, the trout
iu the McKenzie show a slimmer
waistline than lake-raised trout.
This is caused by a turbulent en
vironment that compel them to wage
a ceaseless battle against the cur
rents of the river. A trout placed
in the waters of Clear lake will
grow to resemble a bar tender at
the end of a year compared to his
twin brother on the lower river who
will only be half as large.
Although till was agreed upon as
the official number ,pf trout caught
by the party, six was the limit that
could be hooked on their lines. A
speckled trout that llelfrich hooked
was swallowed by a cannibalistic
Dolly Vardan before it was landed
which brought iu two fish on one
hook. Experienced fishermen seldom
fish with more than two hooks on
their lines yet they passed an ama
teur who had crowded his line with
over 17 hooks, evidently intent on
catching all his fish with one haul.
Both Bean and Helfrieh are geol
ogy majors and spent considerable
time in the study of formations
along the river. Sparks is a sopho
more in physics. The canoe used on
the voyage was the same one that
carried Burg on his 11000 mile cruise
down the northwest coast and the
Columbia river last summer.
Frosh Spill Dope, Taking
Nine Firsts; O. A. C.
Friday proved to be an all-frosh
day. Not only did they lick the
sophs in the morning but the fresh
man track team went to Corvallis
and licked the highly-rated Beaver
rooks. The frosh came to the fore
with a 03 to 59 victory.
The meet started true to form
when Coach Grant Swans, rooks,
took all three places in the mile.
Instead of having the heart taken
out of the coach, Del Oberteuffer’s
frosh staged a comeback, and pro
ceeded to take nine firsts in 14
Probably the best race of the
meet was the half-mile between Web
Hayes of the frosh and Farrow of
the rooks. After trailing the field
the first laps they started a sprint
at the 000 mark that lasted to the
finish. Three steps from the tape
Farrow started to fall while Hayes
managed to get a step farther.
Hayes fell at the tape breaking it
in his fall and Farrow fell on top
The rest of the races were close
and before the relay the score stood
59 to 58 in the rooks’ favor.

Among Subjects of 6
New at Library
Autobiographies and biographies
of men we have heard of all our
lives and some that we have never
heard of are much in vogue at the
present time. Six books of this na
ture are among the latest shipment
that the library has received.
The first complete and intimate
biography of Nathaniel Hawthorne
is given us by Lloyd Morris in “The
^Rebellious Puritan.” The book is a
portrait of Mr. Hawthorne. "Emer
son and Others” is the title of Van
Wyck Brook’s book on several fa
mous men. The study of Emerson
is outstanding among these.
"To understand him is to under
stand life and human beings,” has
been said of Charles Darwin. George
A. Dorsey makes one understand
him better in his book, "The Evo
lution of Charles Darwin.”
"Palmerston,” is written by
Philip Guedalla. This is the first
full length historical study that Mr.
is the number.

With rare clairvoyance, Mr. Sal

a chapter on "Hyenas,” wherein
stalk the blood-stained shadows of
Attila, Cesare Borgia and Ivan the

clever touches as "Hyenas.” The
Matinee 2 P. M.
book is one of the newest recevied
at the library.
In keeping with the "The Pomps
of Satan," are several other wierd
books. "Masks and Demons," is in
