PLANNED THIS QUARTER
NOVEMBER 17 SET FOR ANNUAL
GAMES TO BE CHIEF
Junior Dance at Armory, a Campus
Luncheon Make Up Other
On November 17th, Oregon’s annual
celebration of Homecoming day will be
held on the campus. Definite plans
as to the events of the day have not
been made as yet, but according to
Registrar A. R. Tiffany, it will be one
of the largest homecoming days ever
held, in that it will be not only for
graduates, but also men who are in
the service in the different camps.
“The events of the day will be some
thing the same as those of other years
with the exception that a military at
mosphere will be introduced,” said
Tiffany. “No plans have been made
as yet, but they will be started within
the next few weeks.”
The headliner of the day will be the
football game with California. Not
ijtuch is known of the relative strength
of the two teams, but it is thought that
the southern university will be well
represented in that many of last year’s
men are back in school.
Besides this event, there will be the
large dance at the Armory, a campus
luncheon at noon, under the auspices
of the Women’s council.
All plans of the day will be under
the control of the junior class as in
former years. Letters will be sent

Pants of 1921 Decorated by
“Order of Painted ‘O' ”
Yellow Emblem on Skinner's Butte
Smeared With Red, but Frosh
Bring Back Yellow Hue.
Eight freshmen were decorated with
the “order of the painted ‘O’ ” Friday
afternoon fillowing their re-tinting with
the lemon yellow of Oregon, the big
block Oregon ftO” on Skinner’s butte.
They were the first of the class of
1921 to be so honored, as it was the
first painting of the “O” this year.
The order that the “O” be painted
came from the junior class Friday
morning as a result of the smearing
of the “O” with red, Wednesday night.
The custom of painting the lemon col
ored “O” with paint that is not yellow,
originated several years ago with vis
itors from outside colleges, but it is
believed that the smears Wednesday
night were the result of small boys
from Eugene who wished to see what
Harold Grey and Mike Harris, jun
iors, directed the parade of the eight
selected freshmen through town and
after the painting of the “O,” award
ed the “O’s” to the frosh. The “O’s”
earned by the painting of the “O” are
worn on the eight pairs of frosh pants.
