A moss pot of trouble that hud been
bubbling for some time over the fires of
dissension, boiled over last week when
President Huzzulo, of the University of
Washington, announced that no new con
tract would be offered Gilmore DojIj,
football coach.
This marks the passing from Wash
ington of a coach whose fame gained
while there has been nation-wide. He
undoubtedly has an enviable record with
nine years of victories—and only three
tie games.
President Suzzalo declared that Dobio
had failed to perform one of the chief
functions of the college that of building
up the character of its students.
That is indeed a serious charge and
which, if true, would unquestionably
justify President Suzzalo in bis action
in retiring the coach. From corres
pondence the Emerald is aware Dobie
had with Oregon athletes, i fully ap
preciates the meaning of the Dobie motto
“Defeat never; victory always."
Hut the Emerald has no desire to
strike when a man is down and from the
popular demonstration accorded the Wily
Scotchman of the northland in the wee
mmi' hours of the morning by the under
classmen of the University of Washing
ton it is to bo presumed he struck ll
popular chord in their hearts.
Hut the Emerald cannot but feel that
the passing of Coach Gilmore Dobie
from the northwest will see the inter
collegiate athletic relations of the insti
tutions clarified.

still there are many men remaining sin

institutions rose up in righteous wrath

But ifl the spnee of three years Wash

ing forward to its game m Eugene next

as its great gridiron battle. Due to
these changes the Whole football com
plexion has been changed.
Then the financial profits accruing
from this change are not so insignifi
cant ns to be overlooked. It. is a foolish
head that provides all gander and no
sauce for a feast.
To The Editor:
I wish to call attention to a news story
on dramatics and dramatic organizations
which appeared in the Emerald of last
week. While 1 have no desire to enter
into a controversy with anybody, either
in the columns of your paper or else
where, I do feel that it is only fair to
the Emerald's readers and to the two
dramatic organizations now existing on
the Oregon campus that some of the
inaccurate statements appearing in tile
article referred to lie corrected.
"The 'Campus Players’ is a dramatic < "
ganization of rather ambitious purpose
and designs. The organization was not
formed by the department of dramatic
interpretation, as the story states, but
was formed last spring just prior to the
close of college by several Of the summer
school students. At that time the or
ganization elected I)r. E. S. Bates as
honorary member and as director. Dr.
Bates then had no official connection
with the dramatic department and lias
now no official University connection
with Campus Players.
The organization was so successful
during the summer session under the
direction of Dr. Bates, and received such
hearty support that we felt that we
ought to perpetuate ourselves and or
ganize upon a permanent basis. The
organization produced during the sum
mer school. "The Truth,” by Clyde
Pitch; "lledda (labler,” by Ihjen; and
a series of one not plays by local au
thors. The plays had no connection
with the dramatic department; the ntbm
bers received no University credits or
the work done, and profits were divided
among the participants. So we were not.
as the reporter states, formed by the dra
matic department and "The lave Corpse"
is not the first play which the organi
zation has produced.
We are, moreover, an upper-class,
honorary organi. ition. Wo do not take
in members of the lower division, and
we require all of our members to have
appeared creditably in at least three
university plays.
We are not rivals of any other dra
matic organization on this campus;
nor do we wish to be. And the actions
of any member of'the Campus Players
which tends in convey this impression
will lie discountenanced by the organi
zation as a whole, as 1 feel sure will
also he done in the case of the Uni
versity Players’ organization.
As a further evidence of what little
foundation there is in the report of
rivalry, during the summer session two

members of the University Players took
part in our productions; two members of
the same organization were invited to ap
pear in the coming production of “The
Live Corpse,” and one of them hag ac
cepted this invitation and wall play an
important part. In short, our aim is co
operation to the fullest extent with
either organizations or individuals for
the promotion of the drama in Oregon.
Very truly yours,
(President, Campus Players)

Friday Evening Function to Be
Marked With Features.
Band Music, Punch and Low
Rates Are on Attractive
Program Offered.
The second of the student body
dances, which have been revived on the
campus this year after a prolonged ab
sence, will be given Friday night of this
week. According to Harold Tregilgas,
chairman of the committee of the student
council in charge of the dance, sev
eral new features that will “make it go"
have been decided upon.
The University band will furnish the
music, and band music at a dance would
seem to be ideal according to the com
mittee. More thaq this, there will be
punch, and the admission will be 15 cents
for one person or 25 cents a couple.
The alphatetical seating arrangement
used last week at the sophomore formal
will be repeated at the dance Friday
evening. Some objection was heard to
this plan, because the girls were not able
to be with their sorority sisters or
friends, unless they happened to have
the same initial. This can be overcome
to a large measure according to those
who favor the plan, by remaining with
the group of friends until after the first
dance and returning then to the section
which includes your initial.
The committee is anxious that many
members of the faculty should take ad
vantage of the special invitations sent
