FIELD IS CRITICIZED
Oregon Alumni Severe in Con
Declare Gridiron and Accommo
dations Inadequate From
Prominent Portland alumni of the
University of Oregon are severe in
their general criticism of the football
accommodations at Kincaid field, Eu
genp, asserting that the football au
thorities have no moral right to invite
a large crowd to witness the big games
with the present inconveniences.
In the first place they say, the seat
ing accommodations are inadequate from
the standpoint of protecting one from the
elements. It has rained heavily at the big
Eugene games for the past two years
and nothing has been done to alleviate
the conditions existing with respect to
the field and covering arrangements.
The walks leading to the canvas cov
ered bleachers and the small grandstand
are little protection against mud and
splashing water. The canvas top does not
entirely keep out the rain, say those who
sought shelter under it in several por
tions of the bleachers. The University of
j Washington girls, it is claimed, found
' themselves seated in an uncovered por
tion of the bleachers. East year the Ore
! gon Agricultural college girls had much
| the same complaint in respect to being
rained on and splashed on. Costly kid
shoes were ruined.
Prank Templeton, acting as spokesman
for a large number of Portland graduates
of the university, said: "It is high time
the university was providing adequate
protection to its guests. It is not right
that several thousand people should be
invited to Eugene and then permitted to
become rain soaked. An appropriation of
$10,000 has been made for a new field, I
understand, and some movement should
be made toward utilizing it.
"Each year we have the same old com
plaint about the muddy field:
“ ‘We’d have beaten them on a dry
| “Why isn’t the field drained properly?
Friday was a fine day in Eugene, yet the
rain of Saturday made the field a quag
mire of sticky mud, because the tiling
system would not carry off the storm
water. If the $10,(MX) appropriation is
not available, I understand from compe
tent authority that for $700 Kincaid field
can be resurfaced and adequately drained.
It is time somebody got busy.”—Oregon

FACULTY DOES NOT MEET
Only Four Profs. Three Members of
Committee, at Meeting Tuesday.
Although arrangements had been
made to announce election returns at
the faculty colloquium meeting Tuesday
night, only four faculty members tore
themselves from the bulletin boards long
enough to report at the meeting. These
four were the three members of the
colloquium committee, namely Dr. Joseph
Schafer, Dr. E. S. Conklin, Karl W. On
thank, secretary to the president, and
Dr. W. P. Burton. Mr. Onthank
only remained for a few minutes. No
meeting was held.
Bulletins were, however, received at
the school of journalism until about
8:30 o’clock, telephoned from the down
town newspaper officers by two of the
newswriting students assigned to ‘ that
particular work. Reserve recruits from
the journalism classes, to be assigned to
neglected city precincts, were also on
hand in the journalism rooms.
“A number of people used this news
source,” said Colin V. Dyment, of the
department of journalism. “although
most of them went down town. We
really provided for the bulletins in case
of rain, so that the returns would be
available without standing in the wet
SOCCER TEAM TRAINS HARD
Squad Working Into Shape for 0. A. C.
With about 23 men turning out reg
ularly, the soccer squad is working into
shape for the game with O. A. C., in
ten days. This will be the first game
for the squad in two years, meaning the
playing of practically a green team in
experience in college soccer. Jimmy
Sheehy has been unable to turn out on
account of work. Bill Tuerck's feet are
too badly injured to let him into the
game. Dick Wilcox, who came this
year from Paeiflic University, is
showing unusual promise.
The company from which the soccer
suits have been ordered says that it ship
ped the suits two weeks ago, but has
failed to get them here for some reasou.
If the goods do not arrive by tomorrow
morning the order will be cancelled and
the outfits purchased by Graduate Man
ager A. It. Tiffany, while in Portland
for the Oregon-W. S. C. football game
Saturday. If the outfits can be obtain
ed from stock in Portland the soccer
team will appear in new suits next week.

Prof. W. F. G. Thacher, of the de
partment of rhetoric, who has been criti
cally ill with pneumonia for the lust
ten days, is now steadily improving.
The illness came on suddenly and it
was at first thought that ho was suf
fering from a billions attack. The ease
was wrongly diagnosed and last Friday
he was reported to have pleurisy. Not
till Saturday was it discovered that the
real trouble was pneumonia. Al
though he is now improving, it will be
some time before he will be strong
Campus Players to Stage Com
edy “A Live Corpse.”
Special Scenery Being Con
structed; Glbert of Baker
Stock to Direct.
Campus Players, upperclass dramat
ic honor society, has concluded arrange
ments to stage a French comedy at the
Eugene theatre on December eighth. The
piay “A Live Corpse”, is guaranteed to
be a clever bit of fun, coming from the
pen of one of the most popular French
dramatists, Alfred Herant. The scenes
have been adapted to suit American con
ditions, but all the pep and live stuff is
Special scenery is being constructed
and negotiations have been opened with
IMrector Gilbert of the Baker Stock com
pany asking him to give the production
its finishing touches.
In looking about for a play the Campus
Players decided that it must be a howl
ing comedy from start to finish. “The
Live Corpse" fills this requirement as
well as giving excellent opportunity for
various types of acting. The fun of the
play results from the efforts of a young
newspaper reporter to attain fame.
This is the fourth play presented by
the Campus Players. The three summer
school productions, “The Truth,” by
! Clyde Fitch ; “Hedda Gabler,” by Ibsen ;
and a set of local one-acts, have been re
viewed in past Emeralds.
The present roster of Campus Players
includes the following: President, Char
les Prim: vice president. Earl Fleisch
man; secretary. Rosalind Bates; Man
ager, George Colton. The active mem
bers are Eyle Walker, Lillian Littler,
Rosamond Shaw, Jack Dolpb. Victor
