A Good Time Was Had Lurry-Phwas th' banquet a suc- cosa, Dinny? Dhuiy-It was. Shure, some wan broke Cussidy'a luug wid tu' lovin' cup, ' When the announcement waftod In from the banks of tho Monongahela that Hugo Bezdek, mentor of athletes at the university of Oregon, had boon officially appointed to the task of re-lmbilltatitiB the decadent. Pirates, the great northwest folt honored. It was another triumph. At last this vast empire has been vindicated in tho oyes ol the sport loving public. Last fall the mighty Oregon football machine on the sun baked field at Pasadena, Cal., showed the oast its caliber of playing by humbling tho vaunted Pennsylvania, eleven, tutored by Bob Folwull. And the man who coached this nobby gridiron collection was Hugo Bezdek. Now Hugo lias been secured to show the slumbering Pirates tho way out of the National league cellar. Just what success ho will attain remains to be seen. Bezdek is, and always has boon a close student of baseball. He knows the national pastime from tho proverbial A to Z. And Ma long dealing with men in tho capacity of athletic tutor at (Jregon has given Bezdek an Inflight into tho way of handling men that will stand him in good stead in hifi new Job, for the amateur athlete is much harder to hanUlo than his professional brother. Hai Been Scout for Years For a number of years Bezdek has been employed by Barney Droyfuss In the capacity of scout and he has searched the northwest for baseball talent that would help the Smoky City clan. But Bezdek did not believe in reconimonding talent, promiscuously. Ho advised his employer to purchase but very few players, which in the long run saved the Pittu-iburg, magnate considerable mouoy.
