Albert Perfect, Crack Clarinet

Saturday Afternoon.
Albert Perfect, the new band
leader for the University band, will
arrive Saturday afternoon,” said
Professor R. H. Lyman this after
Mr. Perfect will commence the di
recting of the University organiza
tion next week. He is rated as a
crack clarinetist and it is expected he
will spend much time in strengthen
ing the reed section of the band, the
weakest department at this time. The
new director is a graduate of the
Royal Conservatory of Music, lo
cated at Stockholm. Sweden, and
studied for some time under world
famous musicians in Germany. He
' has specialized in band music ar
irangement. He is recently from the
j State Normal school of North Da
The band this year is well filled as
to departments, the cornet, baritone,
and trombone sections being excep
tionally strong. The organization
will number about 25 pieces for the
Oregon-O. A. C. game, November 20.
Friday, October 23 is the date set
for the U. of O.-O. A. C. hockey
game at Eugene. All the arrange
ments have been completed and this
date is final.
The team is not picked as yet, but
tentative lineups have been tried out
during the past week. The fact that
the scrubs have been regularly out
playing the regulars will necessitate
some radical changes. Mollie Van
Zante, Evla Walker, Teresa Cox, and
Fennie Hunter are easily the best
players on the first team. Ruth
Boque and Cecil Bahl are showing up
strongly in the scrub contingent.
Football Boys Don’t Care What
Idaho Has—They Want
to Fight.
Dry Ground and Dust Was
Hard On Lungs and Muscles,
Responsible for Condition.
(By Chester Fee)
Idaho’s strong team, which is
backed by the students to defeat W.
S. C. in their annual battle (even
after all that has been seen of the
latter) will open their conference
season here Saturday, and will lib
erate all the stuff their coach has
been hammering into them for the
past five weeks. No one knows what
Idaho possesses, but we conclude
they are real championship contend
ers, for Moscow sportsmen, after
watching the Oregon-W. S. C. game,
are insistent in their demands to be
shown some of the filthy lucre that
requires covering.
The feeling that is seeking an out
let behind the iron bars of Kincaid
jail can be stated thus—And this is
the way all the men put it: “We
don’t care what Idaho has; we will
fight the same for Oregon against
any team. Let’s go.” And then they
do go, and keep going, until it grows
so dark the whitewashed pigskin is
substituted for the daylight ball, and
the lights splutter from the arcs, and
then they go again, until some of the
men complain that one foot gets so
tired it does not even want to as
sociate with the more ambitious one
ahead. The other men grin and bear
it. But still they all go.
Old Jup. Pluvius left the flood
gates ajar yesterday, so Manager
Tiffany was not forced by the long
continued hot weather to drag out
the hose and set men at work on the
field. The hard field and the dust
thereon are largely responsible for
the poor showing the men have been
making. Their muscles are tied up
in big knots from running and fall

And the student council is getting
ideas—lots of them. Shall a coop

some of the important questions dis
Chester Miller was unable to make
a complete report on the cooperative
store question, as he has not yet re
ceived replies from some of the col
leges to which he wrote, inquiring
as to their succes in this enterprise.
Stanford describes a successful ex
periment. The store has a build
ing of its own, has no difficulty in
disposing of the capital stock, and
declares 10 per cent dlv'dends. Reed
College reports, however, that their
store has not proved a success. They
attribute this to the small student
body. The council decided to inves
tigate the matter thoroughly before
coming to any definite conclusion.
Eloyd Westerfield, manager of the
Emerald, was present at the meeting,
and presented the case of the Eu

their attitude toward the cooperative

“Tell Truth About Oregon”
Advises George E. Hardy
“Why exaggerate Oregon—tell
the truth; that’s all we need,” said
George E. Hardy, executive secretary
of the Portland Chamber of Com
merce in an address given before the
commerce class of the University
this afternoon.
Mr. Hardy, formerly of Toledo,
Ohio, has had experience in commer
cial club matters, and says that the
trouble with most bodies of this
kind' is that they “do not deliver
the goods.”
“From four commercial clubs in
1804, and 79 in 1904, the number
has increased to 2940 in 1913. Peo
ple begin to find out that large
groups of people have more in
fluence than when the members are
acting in small numbers.
“Oregon needs people; here is a
great undeveloped section which has
great possibilities. Our ]>opulation
is about 800,000, and manufacturers
are shouting about using Oregon
made goods in Oregon. Do these
)men want to build a fence around a
state that has a population of 800,
000?” These are some of the things
Mr. Hardy said regarding the trade
conditions in Oregon.
‘‘Farmers cannot depend on farm
ers alone; agricultural and indus
trial development must go hand in
hand and the two must be well bal
anced. The development of the
Columbia river ought to interest all
Oregon. As it is, most of the trade
has gone to the Puget sound country,
but with the development of the Co
lumbia river and with proper man
agement much of this trade could be
brought to Oregon,” continued Mr.
"The Chamber of Commerce should
be ready to cooperate and do just as
much for one part of the state as for
another. It ct-n bring the people
closer together, so that one section
will know what the other section is
doing. The business interests also
find the Chamber of Commerce a ma
chine through which they can deal.
The Trenton Commercial club of
Trenton, Missouri, has the right mot
to, ‘‘Get to know your neighbor, you
might like him.”
Stanford Women
Grilled on Hazing
Sororities Are Too Rough in
Rushing Tactics, Say Chap
lain and Editor.
Stanford University, Oct 11.—The
evils of college hazing and of the
“rushing" of freshmen girls by the
sororities of Stanford University
were put on the grill by Dr. D.
Charles Gardner, chaplain of the Me
morial church, at the morning serv
ice yesterday.
The manner of rushing the fresh

the rules of Pan-Helenic, a society
made up of representatives of all
the sororities on the campus, has be
come one of the big issues of the
year at Stanford, since the recent
attack on the system made by Pro
fessor Everett Smith, journalism in
structor and editor of the Palo Altan,
the Stanford student weekly.
Professor Smith, through the col
umns of the paper, has started a cam

“Some day a Stanford student will
be killed by our hazing. Then we
will stop. Why not stop now. before
the fatal work is done? We know

Louise H. Allen was unanimously
elected president of the Y. W. C. A.,
to fill out the unexpired term of

features. Besides singing parodied
songs with ukulele accompaniment,
the seven Seabeck representatives
told tales of how Dorothy Wheeler
