A most distressing and fatal accident
happened at Wren yesterday afternoon.
Miss Edna Robinson, while out driving,
visited the Taylor residence and, plac
ing the three children in the buggy, j
started for a ride. The horse became
frightened and in running and kicking j
struck the little 4 year old girl in the
forehead laying the skull open making
a horrible wound. Dr. Newth, of Phil
omath, and Dr. Pernot, of Corvallis,
were hastily summoned and everything,
possible was done to relieve the little
. sufferer, but all to no avail and during
the passing of the night the death an
. gel came. No blame can certainly at
tach to .the young lady who, in the
goodness of her heart, sought to scat
ter rays of sunshine in the hearts of
the little ones. The unfortunate occur
rence has cast a gloom over the entire
community and the deepest sympathy
is expressed for the bereaved family.

In the track meet here yesterday, O.
A. C. easily won from the University
of Idaho, by a score of 73 to 58.
This was the first big meet held here
this season, and in spite of .the loss of
Chapman, who sprained his arm in the
meet with Washington State College,
the OAC men easily outclassed their
opponents. Montgomery did excellent
work for .Idaho, winning three first
places, the 220-yard dash, 220-yard hur
dles and the 44C-yard run. He was de
feated by Scott, of OAC, by a small
margin in the 100-yard dash. Stro
hecker was another point-winner for
Idaho, carrying away first place in the
high jump and also in the pole vault.
In spite of their defeat the Idaho
men showed good spirit until the last,
easily winning the relay race for the
last five points.
Hall, Wolfe, Enberg and Graham
held up to their usual high standing for
College record in the discus by a throw
of 119 feet and 5 inches. One ' of the
most spectacular events of the day was
the half mile race in which Blanchard,
of OAC, won from Denning, of Idaho,
by but a few inches.
-With the exception of Chapman, who
will no doubt be back in a couple of
: weeks, every man is in good stripe, and
the men are looking forward to a close
contest with the University of Oregon.
Director Ahgell expressed his delight
in the -victory yesterday, and 'thinks
that in spite of the defeat from the
Washington State College, OAC stands
a good show of winning a place in the
Northwest Collegiate meet to be held
in Seattle during the fair.
The 100-yard dash, 120-yard hurdles,
880-yard run, shot put, discus, hammer
throw, high jump, pole vault and broad
jump were won by OAC, while Idaho
took the mile run, 220-yard run, 440-
I yard run, 2-mile run, 220-yard hurdles
OAC in the weights. Wolfe broke the jand the relay race.
THE GREATEST FEATURE

confusion avoided when the delegates

people of the city to show their true

should be made to the committee when
it -makes its xeunds. .
