Paper Is Being Distributed To
day and Is Devoted to 1914—
Football Will Star In Next.
What is probably the best and livest
Monthly ever published, is being dis
tributed this afternoon and abundantly
■ ustifies Editor Collins' enthusiastic pre
dictions as to its excellence.
The cover is from the pen of the ver
satile editor, and is a shadow view of
Deady Hall from the west approach.
It is printed on pale yellow in green
ink, making a very effective combina
tion of the college colors. 1 he issue is
devoted to the class of 1914, and con
tains advice, warning and admonition
to the freshmen on college matters.
President Campbell lias contributed
a foreword to the newcomers, outlining
the pace set by 1913 and showing what
is expected of 1914. Miss Dunham, '14.
writes on the “Promise of T4.-’ and
pays some compliments and abilities of
the various noted freshmen, predicting,
of course, brilliant careers. Charles
Robison has a clever Kiplingesque po
em entitled “Everyman—Freshman.'
This warns the youngsters what not
to do to become successful.
Among the other interesting articles
is a contribution by Miss Williamson
on Professor Hawthorne s work for Or
The literary section contains stories
from the versatile pens of Willetta
W right. Evans Huston, Dan Mitchell
I and others. Though the real sensation
of the issue is the Monthly's first essay
into the field of “yellowness, the Who s
Who and Since When articles on
"Prexy" Collier and his colleagues of
| the executive committee. The “funny
I part is grouped under the "Rescued
| From the Waste Basket.” and contain
| a "Freshman Primer in Words of Only
One Syllable.”
The Engineering section contains
timely articles of local interest, in which
the extremely technical side is not de
veloped. They are good reading for
even art students.
On top of all this, the editor promises
an even larger and better issue, which
will be devoted to football and gridiron
Dr. J. A. L. Waddell, to whom the
College of Engineering is indebted for
the valuable lectures delivered here re
cently. has sent to Professor Frink a
complimentary copy of his professional
papers. This is a volume of about one
thousand pages, containing selections
from the author's writings curing the
p:.st thirty years. The book may be
seen at any time on Professor Frink's

| Varsity Practice Will Begin Soon
—Practice Hours Will Be
Four to Five
“Basketball practice will begin next
week, and all aspirants for Varsity
honors will be given an even chance,"
was 1 rainer Hayward’s statement. The
hour will be from four to five on week
days, and later when the squad is picked,
evening practice will be held.
Beside the regular interclass games,
it is Mr. Hayward's intention to hold
an interclub and interfraternity tourna
ment. The idea, as yet. is in its infancy,
but if enough teams enter and sufficient
skill is developed, a trophy will be put
up for the winner. Regular hours will
be assigned to the different teams to
avoid conflicts in practicing.
There appe r to be enough basket
ball men in college to make a success of
such a league, but interest in the indoor
game evidently has waned since mem
bers of the Varsity basketball teams
were denied "O's”
Senator R. A. Booth, well known in
Eugene and throughout the state in the
political arena, has been scheduled to
speak at the men's meeting Friday ev
ening. Mr. Booth’s subject, “Making
i Living or a Life," is a theme that has
been carefully considered in his own
career, and in both lines he has been
eminently successful There are few speak
ers in the state more forcible and elo
quent than Senator Booth, and his ad
dress on Friday evening will undoubt
edly be of unusual interest and worth
to all who hear him.
As usual, the meeting will begin at
7:00 and will be dismissed promptly
at 7 :50.
Class Pip to be In Evidence at
Annual Gridiron Battle
The Sophomore-Freshman game Fri
day promises to be a warm one. Word
has just leaked out from Sophomore
headquarters that they are going to
give an only and original substitute for
the ancient and revered custom of "haz
ing.'’ "The Frosh are altogther too
elated at the entire immunity they have
enjoyed this year,” is the tone of the
quiet message being passed from Soph
to Soph, "so expect something good
when we get them out where we can
rough them a little without getting up
on the carpet for hazing.”
Nothing definite can be learned of
just what the Freshmen are to be put
through, but the fact that every Soph
omore on the campus has sworn to be
there to see the fun, is pretty good evi
dence that something out of the ordi
nary is to be sprung on the unsus
pecting Freshies. If the Frosh get wise
and turn out in equal numbers, the ten
cent admission fee charged should put
the treasury of the winning class in a
very healthy condition.
Though Light, The Visitors Are
F~st and Might Spring a Sur
prise On Warner’s Men
Oregon will line up a crippled team
against the Puget Sound University
eleven here next Saturday afternoon.
Main will he unable to play because of
an injured shoulder. Mitchell is suf
fering from a wrenched knee, which will
probably keep him out of football for
the remainder of the season. Latou
rette will also he kept out of the game
as a result of injuries.
The Puget Sound team is light and
fa.st. and although they were overwhelm
ingly defeated by Washington last Sat
urday, they will invade the Oregon ter
ritory prepared to give the best they
have. Washington won Saturday’s
game by the score of 51 to 0. According
to the Tacoma paper, the P. U. team,
although outweighed twenty pounds to
man, fought a game contest.
Coach Warner will give orders to his
men to run a large score against Puget
Sound. The Oregon team has perfected
its team work since the alumni game,
and the weak places demonstrated by
Saturday’s contest have been strength
Manager Watson voices a plea for
more liberal student support at the
games, as in the alumni contest but
two hundred and eighty-five students,
out of six hundred, were on the grounds.
There will be another preliminary
game between the Eugene High School
and the Oregon Freshmen. The first
game will be called at 2:30 o'clock. Pu
get Sound University will line up as
follows: Max, L. E., Webb, L. T.,
Mitchell, L. G., Benbow, C., Nickolsen,
R. G„ Bend, R. T„ Smith, R. E„ Beards
ley. Q., Servis, L. H., Decker, R. H.,
Xelson. F. B.
Coach Warner is not vet prepared to
reveal the Varsity lineup, but will work
in a large number of players to give
all the promising ones a chance.
At a meeting of the executive com
mittee with Professor Glen Inst nighr,
provisional arrangements were made for
the first student body dance, which will
take place bn the evening of November
5th, provided that date is granted. Pend
ing the decision of the committee on the
d :te, general arrangements have been
made and committees appointed. Wen
dell Harbour has been made general
manager of the whole affair. As pat
ronesses, Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. Penned,
Mrs. Fuller and Mrs. Prescott have
been selected. Following the policy in
augurated early last spring, these stu
dent body dances will he strictly infor
mal. They will be held in the gym as
usual, and a general admission of fifty
cents a couple will be charged.

High School.
Next Attraction Will be Mi s
Brebm’s Talk On Tem
In line with its motto of "everything
for Oregon," the University is to have
the best line of speakers obtainable for i
assembly hour for the next two months.
A large percentage of these speakers
are members of the faculty, and all are
men of rare ability.
Next Wednesday Miss Brehm, the
noted temperance worker, will lecture
on temperance from a scientific stand
point. 1 his lecture will be non-parti
- :i, ■ nd will be very interesting. Miss
Brehm is a deep thinker, and is one of
the few women orators in Oregon.
On November 2 Dr. Schaefer will
deliver a lecture on “Some Conditions
of Leadership." 1 his is from American
'Political history, and .with a capable
historian, as is Dr. Schaefer, handling
tin? subject, it should be one of the best
hours of the year.
I his lecture was delivered before the
Oregon chapter of the Sons of Ameri
can Revolution, which met in Portland
1' st January. It was greatly admired,
and several periodicals reprinted it with
out alteration.
For November 16, as yet no arrange
ment has been made, but there are sev
eral capable men in view, and without
doubt one will shortly be announced.
The first Wednesday after the Thanks
giving recess, Dr. Sheldon will speak on
"Wif). James—An Appreciation." Dr.
Sheldon is ever a deep thinker and an
interesting speaker, and as a lecturer
he has a state reputation.
With i n address on a psychological
subject entitled "1 he Land of the Mag
nolia," Dr. Bennett closes the present
prepared list of speakers Dr. Bennett
is a new man here, but judging from
the popularity of his classes, this lec
ture should prove even more so.
Soccer Field Being Prepared
Back of Library
It m y be anot’nei »/ar before the
Cniversity of Oregon can boast a soc
cer team. So far, only five or six men
show tip for practice, and it take eleven
men to compose a team.
1 hose who have not found their place
in athletics may see their opportunity
for distinction here, since only two, Mr.
Crockett and Mr. Rigler, have ever
played the game before The essential
qualities required are speed and wind,
as the game is a continual running :f
f ir, much like ba -ketball, with forty-five
minute halves
I he merits and characteristics of the
game will be set forth in an article in
the Monthly, by Peter Crockett, who
played the game for many years in Scot
land before coming to this country.
A soccer field is being prepared west
of the library, and when that is com
pleted. prospective soccer players will
have a field all to themselves to prac
tice on. I he soccer season usually ends
at Paster.
