ever before, but today the dopsters are

but his defeat earlier In the season by
William Johnson has caused some of
the wise ones to shake their heads.
Tennis Growing at "I".
Tennis is becoming more a popular
sport at tne University of Oregon each
year. The women of the university are
required by Dr. Stuart, director of ath
letes for women, to play tennis through
out the Fall and spring for exercise.
Dr. Stuart has regular hours upon the
courts for her classes. As all students
of the university, men and women,
must have two years of gymnasium
credits before receiving their diplomas.
there are but a few women in the upper
classes who can not play tennis.
Until last year the University of Ore
gon led in the number of matches won
In the annual tournaments held with
the University of Washington. Last
season, however, the Oregon men met
their Waterloo In two out of the three
The annual tournaments with the Unl
versity of Washington were fathered
by Charles Max Snow, of Portland, who
was a member of the graduating class
of 1909. In the tournament held in bis
senior yea?. Snow won the champion
ship of the Northwest in the singles.
Two tournaments were held between
the representatives of the university
and the Multnomah Club last Spring.
In the matches played at Eugene, the
university team won, and in the tourna
ment on the Multnomah courts the club
men were victors. These tournament
are planned to be held each Spring.
A movement, on foot at the uni
versity, is to procure a graduate coach
for the tennis men. There are a num
ber of alumni in Eugene and at the uni
versity, who are experts with the
racquet and It is felt that much useless
squabbling could be avoided by having
one man in charge of the varsity teams.
On account of tennis having not been
considered on the same level as an
Intercollegiate sport with baseball,
basketball, track and football, it has
not. heretofore, been directly In con
trol of the athletic council. According.
ly, there has been no one In authority
to manage the trial, tournaments and
select the teams. Among the men who
may be chosen graduate coaches are
Bert Prescott, Secretary and President
Campbell. Albert Tiffany, register of
the university, and Paul Bond, of Eu
gene. Three to Return.
Three of last rear's varsity tennis
squad will be back In college next Fall.
They are Joseph Yaden. of Klamath
Falls, Irving Brooks, of Portland, and
Ralph Newlands, a California lad. who
since his arrival as a freshman at. the
university Jias been one of the chier
boosters of the sport. Harry Stein, who
was the only Oregon man to win his
match in the tournament at Seattle,
last Spring was graduated last June.
Two youngsters that look of varsity
class are William Munly and Harry
Lytle. both Portland lads, who have
had long experlence"on the Multno
mah Club courts.
In connection with the Interscholastic
track meet and swimming tournament,
tt is probable that high school tennis
matches will be scheduled rn the annual
Junior week-end celebration In May.
There were over 200 high school par
ticipants in the aquatic and track
meet, held at the university last May.
and it is felt by the athletic manage
ment that a state tournament for a
suitable trophy would be a fit final for
the high school games.
The plan is to divide the state into
districts and have the champions of the
districts play for the state champion
ship at Eugene.

on the grounds at this time of the year
with the exception of a lew straggler
California entries are all on hand, and
within the next few days Ogden, Mon
tana and Idaho horses will arrive and
stalls will be allotted. In addition to
the former well known horses which
fyive been returned to this state to
take part In the annual events, there
are a dozen new racers being worked
out on Lone Oak track.
Among the new stock is Beralce R
a fast little trotter under the care o
M. c. Keefer. the veteran horseman
of California. This mare made sn ex
cellent showing during the Southern
circuit races, and although her time
is but 2:11, her owners expect her to
figure prominently ln tne large stakes
posted bv tne state Fair, ner guar
dlans hope to obtain good results on
the Portland track this season.
Mr. Keefer has under his charge one
of the fastest trotters on the coast so
far this vear. in the mare Nads. She
has traveled the mile ln 2:09. and
the trainer predicts she will beat her
own mark before the season is over,
At present this speedy animal is in
the best of health and ls working out
on Lone Oak track splendidly. Mr,
Keefer exDects to take his prize to
Portland for the harness meeting.
Prince I-ot la Promising.
Included lu this stable Is another
2:09 U horse. It Is Prince Lot. This
trotter won first and second money In
California several times, and. accord
ing to his drivers and owners, is jusr.
beginning to show the true worth of
his heels. He Is stepping around the
7:09 mark in Salem at present not
withstanding he has lust arrived and
is slightly sore from the long trip irom
the Southern courses. With these two
fast animals to rely upon, Mr. Keefer
relieves he will obtain good results by
attending the Portland meet tnis sea
son and that his stork will be ln first
class shape to enter the big races by
the time the State Fair opens.
Along- with the same stable there are)
three three-year-oio norses, two nut
ters and a nacer. These animais are
expected to make a showing 'both in
Portland and Salem this year, ln view
of the fact they have been given every
advantage possible, previous to their
trin north. Mr. Keefer is also caro
lng with him two promising two-year-olds
belonging to E. W. Barker, of San
Francisco. He declares that, although
these trotters are but babies as yet.
he expects to enter them ln some light
class in Portland or saiem tnis year.
Fred Ward, another well known cir
cuit horseman, is on hand again this
season with an able string of trotters
and pacers. Mr. Ward is driving tne
faithful little horse Zombronut again
this season, and although this popular
trotter ls not showing up to the best
of advantage now, he will no doubt
work down to the proper pace before
the regular Oregon racing season really
opens. ZomDronui s recora un
tracks is well known. He has captured
the large stakes both ln Portland and
at the State Fair. In California, Zom
bronut was always found up well with
the leading horses, but ne was unaoia
to get the first money. He made nis
first record on Lone Oak track. Mr.
Ward hopes to drive him home with,
the game results this season.
Mr. Ward also brougnt witn mm inn
