Bearcat Football Team r
To Play U. of W. Eleven
"It never rains but It pours likt-
WeiBe'r Dellf the very dickens," with Willam
ette university. The latest poui
is the football game scheduled be
tween the Bearcats and the Uni
versity of Washington at Seattle
for the only possible date j left
open during the whole season.
Early last spring arrangements
were made for the m Bearcats to
meet a number of other histori
cal and legendary opponents with
only one Saturday left open foi
the whole season up to Thanks
giving day. ; This Washington
game fills in this one last vacan
cy, and the Bearcats are now
pledged for as strenuous a season
as anybody could wish to get.
- Coach Rathbun announced thir
new engagement this week, and
he counting on the team mak
ing good all down the line, f The
Washington game , will be on a
guarantee of 1200, which ought
to take good care of the expenses
for the trip. Some of the other
teams will be asked to consider
the new Willamette team as a
real contender and not a mere
sco re-fa tte ne r as the locals have
been for the past year or two.
Thefe is good promise that; they
will have to think a lot better of
the Bearcats than in the past.
Coach Rahbun has not seen the
boys in action but be is 1 sure
enough of some of his material to
be confident that they will work
into a powerful team.: '

shows that the city is making a
success of it.. f
Backed by a regiment of guar
antors, who are to be found In
all walks of business, commercial.

become almost as truly civic as i

The admission charged for per
formances, which is moderate and
considered popular.' though insuf
ficient as yet to pay the full cost
of entertainment. Is the sole mark
distinguishing the Chicago Civic
Opera from other civic institutions
with a general appeal.
There are 2,200 guarantors who
stepped to the front when Harold
F. McCormicg and Mrs. Edith
Rockefeller McCormick contribu
ted their holdings to the then Civ
ic Opera Association.
It Is now announced by Sam
uel Instill, President of the Opera
company, that when the deficit
for the first civic opera season,
that of 1922-1923. waslinally de
termined and '. made known, the.
guarantors responded immediate
ly and unhesitatingly - and ful
filled their pledges' without de
