HIGH-CLASS SPRINTING. !
0. A. C. Won From Columbia in
Saturday's Track Meet '
Kelly Kouldn't Kut'er.
Althougbt the total score of 87
to 17 in favor of the home aggreV
gatioa shows a very one-sided
contest in the track meet between
OAC, and Columbia University,
occurring here Siturday, much
interest throughout the afternoon
was maintained. It was con
ceded in advance that the general
result would favor OAC, but an
ever-present fear possessed the
partisans of OAC that Kelley,
' the plucky and capable athlete of
Columbia, might begin at any
time to do some wonderful things;
and. there was among the visitors
a tenacious hope that he would
Js.euy nad been Heralded as a
wonderlul sprinter and all-round
athlete, and his, performance
in the recent indoor meet at
if ortlana was suca that all were
compelled to acquiesce in the
possibility of the powers claimed
for him. Kelly is, indeed,
young man of varied athletic
qualncations, and it is not to his
discredit that he failed to take
first place in any of the sprint
ing events last Saturday. The
truth is that he was up against as
hard a proposition in the runs as
could ie selected on the coast.
The first event called was the
50-yard dash. Three OAC men
and two Columbians went to the
scratch. The throng of specta
tors vainly endeavored to ascer
tain which one of the boys in
white was Kelley. It finally be
came known that the leader of
the visitors was not entered, and
there was evident relief. To the
home people it seemed likely that
the stars of their favorites would
not in this event suffer, a total
r eclipse. At the report of the
'T'Starter's pistols" the boys were off,
: and they .flew down half the
course in "close formation."
: When they began to separate, it
I could be seen, to the surprise of
all, that the three collegians led
the University boys, , and so it
was at the finish, Williams first,
Smithson second, Graham third,
) and the locals received all that
was coming to them in an ovation.

Next came the half-mile run,
and still Kelley did not come to
the starting line. This " event1
held unusual interest. Greenhaw,
(OAC) took'the race in 2.07 2-5.
Walsh, (C) second and Van Clever
(04C) third.. . . ;;
Tbjerejwas an excited murmurr
when lhe 100-yard dash was call
ed, lin this event the Columbia
favorite -was to appear and it was
known that there would surely be'
something doing, between Smith
son, Williams and Kelly. - Be4
tweeh them it was a close race,
and it was a toss-up who should
win until within a few feet of the
outcome when Smithson took . a
slight lead of Kelly, with Wil
liams a close third. The wild
scenes which followed p;ave evi
dence that somebody was exuber
antly satisfied'fhe 1 resul t liavfng
shown that -Kelly wasfoot lttvraciH,
ble. It-was a great race and from
the standpoint,, of jth atWete.;it
was the best, under ,tjhe;.;cjrcuint
stances, which eyer occurred on
the coast, being run as it was over
an ascending track and against
a strong wind in 10 seconds flak
Incidentally it may be stated that
on Saturday last: in aa all-California

men for the Iewis and Clark Ex
position games the best time made

This is the coast secord, and up

probably the most exciting run
which has ever .occurred here, al
though Kelly was so hopelessly
beaten near the outcome that he

, The piano lecture-recital given
by Prof. Taillandier in college
chapel Friday evening for the
benefit of the Village Improve
inent Society was a success. The
attendance was good and ap
preciation ot every numoer was
The professor was assisted by
his pupils, Miss Louise Smith,
Adah McDonald and Irene Sproat,
and they all did very nicely. In
the brief lecture that preceeded
the musical numbers good judg
ment was evidenced in the selec
tion of subject matter and the
remarks pertaining thereto.
In the lecture only such mat
ters as could readily be under
stood by the average person,. were
touched upon. While to a well
informed, musician there was
nothing new in what was said, !
it was of a nature to instruct and
interest a , class of people, who
though fond of music have never
made it the subject of especial re
" During the course of the re
cital Prof. Taillander made ex
planatory remarks before each
number. Of the work at ; the
piano one can only comment fa
vorably of the pupils. Save the
D minor concerto by Mozart the
program was made up ot num
bers, which, while of minor im
portance ; were nevertheless in
structive and pleasing. ; The solo
pail 01 luis cuutciiu was kbuci-
ed by Prof. Taiflandef. Taken1
as a whole, it was unusually well
executed, and is a repartoire num

orchestral' -'part on - the second
piano .and her work, was good;

pianists. Works that he leftareat
this day, and will be for all time,

gained, and commanding alike
the attention of professional and

No other circus , traveling has
a troupe of Japanese women.
They are very hard to induce to
come to this country and it took
Norris and Rowe's Yokahama
agent nearly a year to pursuade
them to make the trip across the
Pacific. ,The appearance of the
Sugimoto troupe is a very pleas
ing one. These demure, pretty
Japanese maidens are attired in
picturesque kimonas, pure silk
with beautifully wrought .figures
that seem to stand out with life
like fidelity. '
Quickly discarding these gar
ments, their beautiful figures are
revealed in red trunks and white
tights.. Then begins a most
bewildering display of strength
and ; agility in the expert exer
cises of the , sword and rapier.
As there are six of the young
women engaged at once in these
exercises, the effect can be imag
ined. At the conclusion of this
portion of the entertainment, the
young women go through acro
batic feats, posturing, juggling
The Sugimoto Japanese maid

Japanese coolies. They are so
quaintly attired, so picturesquely
pretty and doll like as to almost
seem as if they had stepped from
the pages of an illustrated book
of Japanese legends. This is
but one of the innumberable
happy surprises the Norris and
Rowe Greater circus has prepar
ed for their patrons when they
appear at Corvallis, Wednesday,

Our school boys played the
Albany High School chaps a
game of baseball in that city
ast Friday and were, deleated
after a pretty good struggle. The
Herald gives the following ac-
connt of the game:
The Corvallis high school base

hands of the Albany high school
boys by a score ; of ;Ti to gj. in an
interesting game at Rambler

at :'1b. o'clock, and ,ih the! first
mnmg each made three runs.'.'. In
the .. second Corvallis again had
three - runs wlifle Albany only
scored one and the friends o the
local, team became alarmed. . For

time of it, but after a few innings
the Albany players got a,'lme on
