and talk straight to the.50-50's
and see what they're going to do.
He has sifted out a number of the
more promising players, and will
shift them around' so as to locate
each one 'iri his best position
and they go after it, hard.
Two Indiana, and perhaps three,
will have good chances for regu
lar berths Jn the 'varsity squad.
These are Towner, catcher from
last year, who Is certain to be of
the preferred list. Shepherd, of
Chemawa, looks like one of the
best of the recruits, and Corbett
also 'plays intelligently and fast.
Isbam, quarterback on the foot
ball team last fall, looks like a
good chance ,for an Infield posi
tion. Ashby, of Course, will be
one end ' of the ' regular battery.
So, too, will Ellis, almost cer
talnly, and these two pit Aers will
take their turn in the field, so
they" can be used . for slugging
when runs are needed. Both are
good batters. f'Blll" Vinson looks
like a good chance In the Infield,
at second, with Shepherd at first.
The outfield is still a guess.
' Graham, a distance runner, is
making a good showing. 1 He will
perhaps be available for the half-
mile and mile. Logan, the basket
ball star, also is doing some dis
tance work, and may be ' a hard
man to beat. . The rain of Monday

the expected influx of athletes to

personality drew recurrent
storms of applause from the audi

her audience the Impression that
she was saving her strength tor
Portland and Seattle appearances.
Just why Zoe Atkins' manu

for the Barrymore talent in Ameri

mystery. The English setting, the
hints of half-world indulgences of
the upper class and semi-delirious
repartee may be regarded as" be

However, Miss Barrymore was
decidedly among those present in
the cast and seized upon the best
portions of her role with displays
of brilliant performance that ad

ME HIT IDE
BY GLEE US
Presentation of Gifts to Uni
versity is Announced
Willamette university, fs the
richer by one painted organ, one
red-plush stage curtain, one set
of genuine stage footlights, and
a stage to-ioot, for the efforts of
the Men's Glee club, the public
speaking department, and certain
other- unnamed friends who pre
sented, them.' .
The ensemble was presented at
the Glee club's concert last night
when the 4 curtain was sprung on
the unsuspecting .. college. The
organ had been made public some
days before, and likewise the
stage and footlights, but nobody
knew who did it, and so nobody
said anything abont it.
The funds -come mostly from
the recent glee club tour of east
ern Washington and Oregon. The
singers spent the coin for the "var
sity honor, but they kept the en
thusiasm. They put some of it
into their singing last night. It
was not all , the men's very own
concert, however, as the women's
glee club joined, and they made
it, a twosome of rare quality.
'The concert' was a delightful
musical event. In all, there were
2f numbers, ; eounting program
pieces and 'encores. A number
of the presentations woud bear,
extensive. description. - Perhaps
third in less than-; five minutes.
Both men are exceptionally fast
for their weight, and ihey;cer
tainly put up the big battle. i
The boxing was not quite In the
same class as the wrestling,
though there were five bouts in
stead of the advertised four. In
the first, P. Zeller gained a de
cision over Holllngsworth, at 125
pounds. Olson won from Julio,
at 118 pounds, in a strlng-halty
battle that made the crowd won-?
der what was coming next. Wel
ker, 145, college champion at his
weight was put against Reynolds,
158, and boxed to a draw. This
was a fast match. A. Zeller and
Bennett, at 135 pounds, put on a
good exhibition, that drew a draw
decision.- Bennett has a; crouch
that would give' a lizard the stom-ach-aohe
to get down so low. . He
springs up out of the holes in the
floor, like a jack-in-the-box, with
a wallop in either hand though
Zeller easily" held it to a draw. ;
-The - light heavyweight class,
with Red field, and Gist, brought
the only catastrophe of the even
inga finish for Redfield, who
was 'in no way a. match: for the
clever, hard-hitting. Gist, college
champ at his weight. If they had
any-others better Jthey'iLJjave . an
eye-full of world champions!
;r: Following the, program, the wor
men of the Salem O, A. C club
served a luncheon to the athletes

The bouts' .were refereed byiO.
A. C aihlepsyi instructors, jhe
wrestling by Coachi Rutherford,
and the boxing by -3ad' Butler,
trainer. - ;
glee club was one of the most
stirring. Not a few of the boys
have actually heard' - trumpets
blowing- on the field of battle,
calling out the. zero hour for over
the top, sounding the recall from
the vicious charge, mourning
"Taps" for those who : are gone,
calling for' battlefield meals that
failed to materialize. One could
sing "The Trumpeter" with such
a setting. and they did! And
"Tim Rooney's at the FlghUn''
was sung as well by blonde Skan
dinavians, swarthy southerners,
and lantern-jawed, bony New En
glanders, as if they had been Hi
bernians as green, as. gourds. ; ;
Thewomen'a glee club present
ed" a number of delightful offer
ings. Perhaps no other attracted
quite as much charm as the group
of Indian songs, though . all the
work was o a' high order.i The
women nave: "been excellently
trained, they selected their num
bers with care, they' sing them
with cidse harmony and admirable
stage presence.- . . . , . i -
The solo numbers were all kind.
Miss Kathleen LaRaut and Miss
Lorlel . Blatchford. and Everett
Craven and P. M. .Blenkinsop, all
appeared in solo parts, with ster
ling numbers. There has never
been such a man's baritone voice
in Willamette. Where he gets it
is ajmarvel; his singing, would be
an event on almost any platform.
Miss Marian Emmons gave with
skill and understanding a diffi
cult violin number, "Scene de Bal
let," by deBarlot, that was well
received: and the Agony Four, a
men's comedy quartet, presented
two interesting numbers.
The orchestral accompaniment
was a real delight to ; everybody
who heard it And there were a
lot of people to hear it, too; the
hall was well filled.
The program, is to be repeated
tonight for those who did not get
to go the first, time owing to a
number of other attractions In
town at the same time.
