try were acted on at the annual meet
ing of the Amateur Athletic Union of
the United States, held here today.

Northwest, Southern Pacific, Inter
mountain and Rocky Mountain Associa
tions to hold a Far West championship.
Permission also was granted to add ths
Canal Zone to the Southern Pacific As
sociation. eeverai amenamenis to me cuuuutu
tion were proposed and discussed at the
meeting and three of , them were
adopted. The most radical of these was
one by which women are enabled to
.register for swimming events confined
exclusively to women competitors. The
laws of the union heretofore prohibited
women registering in any department
of sport under the union's Jurisdiction.
Entry Rales) Chanced.

In the same 'year upon paying his en
try fee. The championship committee

A regularly employed instructor, how
ever, may take part with his pupils In

shall be held between an -amateur and
a professional and where both amateur
and professional contests are held at
the same place and same day, all una
teur events must either precede the
. professional events or vice versa.
Catholic League Dropped,
The secretary was instructed to give
SO days notice to the National Catho
lie Amateur Athletic League, of the
cancellation of its aliance " with the
American Athletic Union, the reason
given for this drastic action being con
tinued laxity in registrations on the
part of the Catholic League.

-was unanimously re-elected, ana Jonn
Elliott, of San Francisco; George F.
auling, Philadelphia; Charles A. Dean

It was up to the Euclid Golf Club
of Cleveland, O., to start something
new in regard to the present-back-to

prizes given for the winners in th
two-ball mixed foursome held recently
on the links. Homer McDaniel, who
made the awards, presented a crate
of eggs as first prize to Mrs. H. C. Mc-
Kean and R. E. Kimball. Each reg

BEHIND SHUT GATES
Reorganized Backfield Fails to
Meet Expectations and
New Shift Is Likely.
CORNELL MAY NOT PLAY
Sliarp Calls Signals and Huntington
Runs at Half Cook and Beckett
Show They Can Be Relied
Upon as Linesmen.
UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene,
Or., Nov. 16. (Special.) Coach Bezdek
led his squad to Klncaid Field this
afternoon and held a practice session
behind closed gates. Even the . most
ardent fan was barred from the field.
Although beaten and scarred by the
Dobie champs, there is not an Oregon
athlete who is discouraged to an ex
tent that he' will predict disaster at the
hands of Stewart's huskies next Satur
"It was the breaks of the game that
beat . us Saturday," said Captain Par
sons. "Washington was unable to buck
the ball nearer than our 30-yard line
and was forced to rely on a forward
pass and a field goal."
New Backfield la Weak.
At Seattle Bezdek's offense was far
from its usual form, a reorganized
backfield, with Bigbee at half and
Huntington at quarter, failed to come
up to the old Cornell and Malarkey
combination. It was too big a task for
the recruits, and Bezdek again is forced
to change. In all probability Sharp will
call signals and Huntington will re
place Bigbee as a back.
Cornell's chances to start against
Oregon Agricultural College are slight.
The little star played only two min
utes at Seattle and was carried off the
field injured again.
Sharp, relieving Cornell, showed to
great advantage. Sharp called the
signals this afternoon, with Hunting
ton running at half.
Cook and. Beckett put up a brand of
football that labels them as two Ore
gon linesmen who may be relied upon.
No ill effects, other than severely
bruised faces, resulted from their work.
Risley, on the other hand. Is limp
ing from a sprained ankle, and Bigbee
is under a physician's care, nursing- a
severe boil on the knee. Both me -, are
expected to be in shape by Saturday.
Three From Same School.
Lyle Bigbee, Orvllle Monteith and
Dean Crowell, who are nghting neck
and neck for places on the reorganized
team, all played on the same high
school team. They were members of
the 1912 Albany team along with An
derson and Abraham, who are regulars
on the Oregon Agricultural College
Bigbee and Monteith played the half
back positions and Crowell right
tackle. The Albany team of that year
averaged 180 pounds. '
The three contestants are within one
pound of the same weight, and there is
only one year's difference in their ages.
Monteith and Crowell, according to
Trainer Hay ward's figures, tip the
scales at 171 and Bigbee at 170. Mon
teith and Crowell are 20, years old and

CYCLISTS AHEAD OP RECORD
One of Six-Day Teams Drops Out and
Another Rider Is Injured.
NEW YORK. Nov. 16 Seventeen teams
of the world's fastest cyclists whirled
over the 10-lap course at Madison
Square Garden tonight in the swiftest
six-day bicycle race ever run here.
The nine leading teams were almost
four miles ahead of the record at 11
o'clock, with a. score of 516 miles and
five laps. The previous record for the
23d hour was 512 miles and six laps,
made by Kramer and Moran In 1912.
One team of the 18 that sped away
with the starter's pistol dropped out
of the race at dawn. Thi3 was the
French team of Phil Causseau and

he recovered from a wound in the -leg

Therein lies a good lesson for the
University of Oregon and the Oregon
Harvard's success has been due to
Haughton. Harvard picked the right
man seven years ago and froze onto
him; Tale and Princeton dubbed along,
changing every year.
The University of Washington picked
a good man in 1908, kept him, and con
tinued winning; the two Oregon col
leges frittered along just as Tale and
Princeton have been doing and they
haven't been setting the world afire.
Now both Oregon colleges finally
have landed in the hands of men thor
oughly able to cope with the mighty
Dobie. If Eugene and Corvallis offi
cialdom will stand pat on the present
coaches, we may well look forward to
a rift in the purple and gold tide ere
another season or two. The answer is,
that organized efficiency is sure to win
over disorganized efficiency every time.

OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE,
Corvallis, Nov. 16. (Special.) Nego
tiations which were carried on by long
distance telephone and telegraph today
between Dr. E. J. Stewart, director of
athletics at the Oregon Agricultural
College, and representatives of civic
bodies of Tacoma resulted in a decision
to shift the football game scheduled
with the University of Southern Cali
fornia from Corvallis to Tacoma and
to play it on Thanksgiving afternoon
for the benefit of the Belgian relief
Attempts were made to interest the
Aggies in a game with the University
of Montana to be played in Tacoma De
cember 5, but the Aggies turned the
project down. After a meeting of the
administrative council of the college,
and one of the athletic board, and after
the attitude of President Kerr and
members of the board of regeriYs had
been learned by telegraph, the proposi
tion was made that the University of
Southern California game be substi
tuted and the date changed to Thanks
Tacoma to Pay Expenses.
The Tacoma Chamber of Commerce
and Board of Trade telegraphed ac
ceptance. Tacoma offered to take over
the contract existing between the Ag
gies and the Southern California team
and to pay the expenses of both elevens
to Tacoma, Neither team will make
any money out of the game, all the
proceeds going to the Belgian fund.
The Tacoma people expect to have 35,
000 people in the Tacoma Stadium and
to charge $1 for admission. A cham
pionship High School game will be
played as a preliminary.
I ho local athletic board will be mak
ing a sacrifice financially, as the
University of Southern California
game in Corvallis would have drawn
a big crowd. But the opinion of play
ers and authorities alike was that an
exceptional opportunity was offered to
have a part in the raising of funds.
. Callforalans Are Notified.
The contract with the Los Angeles
College permitted Dr. Stewart to name
the place for the game, so that there
will be no objections on the part of the
other team. It has been notified that
the game will be In Tacoma.
Preliminary to the Oregon game Sat
urday, Dr. Stewart sent his squad
through a workout this afternoon.
Practices will be severe In their na
ture until Thursday, when scrimmage
will cease and light signal work will
be the rule. Des'pite the good showing
of the locals against Idaho, fans and
players are far from confident. Wise
ones here expect a battle royal.
"Doc" Stewart returned with his
team on a special train Saturday night.
He was happy as a result of the drub
bing administered by his followers to
the Idaho eleven, but Indicated that he
would have been satisfied with
smaller score. .-
