Extension Department Well Fit
ted for Co-operative Efforts,
Through Lectures, Corres
In a letter to the mayor of each
city and town of the state, to each
county court and to other officials,
the University of Oregon has just
offered an extraordinary service.
This service is to be absolutely free’
and is to be performed by members
of the University’s regular faculty.
It is a service that would cost hun
dreds and perhaps thousands of dol
lars to each community if outside ex
perts had to be engaged; many Ore
gon communities, in fact, are believ
ed to have gone without this much
needed service rather than incur the
Busy officials often do not have
time to keep up with the latest devel
opments in the fields of public ac
counting, city planning, government
organization, such as the commis
sion government or city management
plan and the treatment of defective
and delinquent classes. This depart
ment plans to collect the results of
the experience of other cities and
communities throughout the country
and make all this information avail
able for those who wish to know
■what is the best thought on their re
spective problems.
Service Communities Can Have.
More specifically, the department
aims to do the following for the
communities of Oregon:
1. To provide expert information
on the problems which are arising in
connection with municipal adminis
tration, as for example, the prob
lems connected with street paving,
street lighting, sewer construction,
and sewage disposal, park adminis
tration, police and fire protection,
water supply systems, and questions
connected with the operation or reg
ulation of public utilities.
2. To assist and direct by corres
pondence, and personal conferences,
communities which desire social sur
veys made, either of all the activi
ties of the community, or of any spe
cial phase of its life. Never before
have men and women been so con
scious of the need of knowing the
facts about thsir communities. All
real constructive work must start
with a fact basis.
Advice as to Business Memous.
> 3. To co-operate with boards of
county commissioners, city officials,
health officers, superintendents of
workhouses, county and state asy
lums, supervisors of the poor, so that
the best information and best way of
conducting the public business may
be placed at the disposal of every
public official.
4. To cc-operate with county and
city treasurers and auditors,, and
other financial officials, and to give
advice regarding the installation of
‘ up-to-date methods of controlling re
ceipts and disbursements and mod
ern practices connected with audit
ing vouchers, purchasing supplies,
and letting contracts.
^ 5. To co-operate with voluntary
societies such as commercial clubs,
improvement associations, welfare
leagues, health societies, women’s
clubs, etc., in working out plans for
social betterment programs; and with
county superintendents and county
school boards with special reference
to the finances of rural schools.
Xo more useful method of pre
senting ideas has been invented than
the exhibit, often in connection with

off the tie which was the reshlt of

weeks ago,” says Dean Walker, di
rector of Oregon’s student body ac
“I was supposed to hear from Dr.
E. J. Stewart for Corvallis last night,
but did not, so I cannot say what the
possibilities of a game are. Practic
ally the only date open would be next
Saturday. The following week the
game with Multnomah is to be play
ed and a game after that would be
a post-season game and I think it
likely that the faculty would oppose
any post-season games. I under
stand that Stewart will not consider
a game for next Saturday on account
of the Idaho game which they play
the following Saturday.
“I would be in favor of a game if
suitable arrangements can be made
but think the proposition will have
to be made from O. A. C. before any
consideration can be taken of it.
“If our team should play the Ag
gies again I have no doubt of the
outcome after the showing made
against Washington and personally
would like to see the game played.
Unless I hear from the O. A. C. au
thorities it is probable that no action
will be taken. ’

Crippled Oregon Halfback Picks Holes In
Dobie’s Line For Big Gains. Fenton’s
High Punts Outdistance Sutton’s
(Raeman T. Fleming)
The Washington aggregation left
a lot of its hard-earned or easily
made money in Portland as the re
sult of the game last Saturday. Be
fore the game they were offering
odds that they would beat Oregon
by'at least fifteen points; but how
the mighty have 'fallen! 10 to 7 is
not a victory; it is a comparison.
That comparison shows the relative
differences in the two teams.
The Washington team had a won
derful ground gainer in Hap Miller.
Their backfield weighed twenty
pounds more to the man than did
the Oregon backfield. Their line
was lighter than Oregon’s but they
did not mass their plays through
Oregon line but rather just outside
where they could make the addition
al weight count to the utmost.
Parsons’ Wonderful Work.
As opposed to this was the spec
tacular work of John Parsons who
picked the holes made for him by the
Oregon line in a most uncanny fash
ion. Despite his poor underpinning
he carried the ball gamely and al
though he was not as good as he
might have been he was still head
and shoulders above any other indi
vidual in carrying the ball. Cornell,
owing to his inability to move his
legs as fast as he has in previous
games, did not take the ball as much
as he has heretofore; but for this he
can not be blamed as he was in agony
most of the time. Malarkey and
Bryant were in the game all of the
time for all that was in them.
The real feature of the game was
the punting done by Carl Fenton.
His kicks were sure and they sailed
out for a good average which far ex
ceeded the work done by Sutton.
Carl made a game try for a kick
from placement from the thirty-five
yard line. The ball started right, but
it carried off a little. While the ball
was soaring through the air the
Washington contingent held their
breath as they were sure it was going
to tie the score again. Thus went
Oregon’s chance for the game, as the
ball then belonged to Washington on
their twenty-yard line and there was
not time enough left for Oregon to
get another try at it.
Touchdown in First Quarter.
Washington got their touchdown
in the first quarter. Oregon tried a
fake kick but it was brought back,

the required ten yards before it was
Ceremonies in Portland Satur
day Gives Oregon Eighth
National Fraternity
The eighth national men’s frater
nity has entered the circle of Grtek
letter societies at the University of
Oregon. With almost eighty mem
bers of Delta Tau^Delta in attend
ance, including ail of Gamma Mu
chapter of the University of Wash
ington,' the Portland Alumni chap
ter, and a number of visiting mem
bers, the local fraternity of Zeta
Phi was installed as Gamma Rho
chapter of Delta Tau Delta, at Port
land, Saturday, November 15.
The initiation ceremonies took
place in the K. of P. hall, the work
being done by the Washington chap
ter under the direction of Ritualist
Harry R. Hewitt, of Beta Gamma
carried outside by Captain Bradshaw.
It was brought back and tried again.
This time it was gobbled up by a
Washington man. He was downed in
his tracks, however, and after a
fruitless attempt to puncture the
Oregon line Washington punted.
Cornell carried the ball back five
> yards before he was downed. Ore
gon could not make much yardage
and ' was forced to punt. Washing
| ton received the ball and by a esries
of line-bucks got the ball up to-the
Oregon thirty-six yard line. Then
by two successful forward passes
I which netted ten and twelve yards
respectively they had the ball within
| fourteen yards of the Oregon line.
( Miller was then given the ball and
| he carried it over. Jacquot kicked
the ball out and it was fumbled but
they were given another chance as it
was alleged that Oregon was offside.
On another attempt Sutton kicked
, the goal.
Fenton’s Punting a Feature.
In the second quarter, Fenton
started things going by gobbling the
ball on a fumble. The ball was now
on Washington 40-yard line. Ma
larkey took the ball and made one
yard. Parsons was then given the
ball and he got away for a touch
down. Fenton kicked the goal and
tied the score.
In the second half Oregon came
back with a vengeance and it looked
as if Oregon were going to sew the
game up. It was in this quarter that
Fenton showed his coolness by twice
kicking the ball sure and far from
the goal line. Washington came
back though, in a little while and
worked the ball down the line until
they got within striking distance of
! the goal when Smith kicked from
placement. This was in the last
quarter and although the Oregon
men tried gamely to get the ball over
the line for a touchdown, they were
unable to do so and finally in a last
effort was called upon to try a place
kick from the 35-yard line which
was unsuccessful. TJio game ended
with the ball on Oregon’s 30-yard
Up to the last they fought like
cnly Oregon teams are able to fight,
and lost a good game to a good team
by a margin that is no disgrace to
any team and one which will give no
team a chance to crow or say that
they outplayed them.

Portland and Astoria Concerts
Postponed Because of
The proposed Thanksgiving trip
for the Glee Club lias been called off
as far as Portland and Astoria are
concerned, according to Graduate
Manager Dean Walker.
“The Portland date was cancelled
on account of the big society benefit
which is to be held there three
nights in succession at Thanksgiving
time,” said Walker today. ”1 did
not think it advisable to attempt to
run competition to their show. The
Astoria date has also been cancelled
as it would mean too much expense
to travel so far for the one appear
“However, it is probable that a
trip will be taken. 1 have written
to a number of the larger towns in
Southern Oregon, such as Grants
Pass, Roseburg, Ashland and Med
ford and may be able to make a trip
south at this time. I have also writ
ten to McMinnville, Independence
and several others north of here and
may be able to make that territory.
If possible, a trip will be made at
Thanksgiving by the club.
“The appearance in Portland will
in all probability be made on a later
date as 1 think a good concert can
be held there which will benefit the
club and also the University. The
trip to Portland may be made be

President P. L. Campbell, who ad
dressed the National Association of
Stale Universities which recently
convened in Washington, will leave
Chicago tonight on his return to Eu
gene. On his way back President
Campbell will speak at Baker City
and will probably reach Eugene the
fore part of next week.
Besides attending the convention
at Washington, I>. C., Pr sident
Campbell visited several colleges and
universities in the East for the pur
pose of obtaining latest educational
ideas and to line up available men
for future additions to tin- faculty.
Last Thursday President Campbell
spent at the John Hopkins Univer
sity in Baltimore. On Saturday lie
witnessed the football game bet ween
Yale and Princeton. Monday lie was
in conference witli President Lowell,
of Harvard University.
The Oregon president had the dis
tinction of being the only college
president in the west who addressed
the convention in Washington.
It is seldom that several successive
days pass without reports of a “police
scandal.” But one can hear and even read
a lot of things that at most are only
fractionally true. »
Thanksgiving Game With Mult
nomah Will Probably Yield
Profit of $1,500 for Oregon,
Says Manager Walker.
“Oregon is just about even with
the board as far as receipts and ex
penses in connection with football
are concerned,” said Graduate-man
ager Dean Walker yesterday when
speaking of his report of the Oregon
Washington game played in Portland
’ast Saturday.
"The amount of money cleared has
fallen considerably below my expec
tations." said Dean, “owing to a
much smaller crowd turning out for
the Washington game than I expect
ed. The 0. A. C. game did not prove
as big a drawing card as 1 had hoped
but the big slump occurred at the
Washington game. The number of
tickets sold was about $2,000 short
of the number sold two years ago. I
attribute the falling off in the sale
of tickets to the difference in scores
run tip by the two teams earlier in
the season which gave Washingnton
much the best of the bargain.
"The Multnomah - Oregon game
which will be played n Portland on
Thanksgiving Day always draws a
good crowd and the amount we will
receive from that game over and
above expenses will be practically
clear profit. Our share will prob
ably be about $1500. At . this time
we are about $ 1500 short of what I
had expected to clear off of these.
