a recent long-distance conversation with
Doan Walker, George Bertz, manager of j
the Multnomah team, said that he laid |
an exceptionally strong eleven, and that
they were out after the scalp of the
Lemon Yellow.
Oregon will go into the game having
had only one week of practice—the least
ever had before an opening game. Due
to misunderstandings and conflicts, many
of the men have not appeared regularly,
and Coach “Shy” Huntington has had
little chance to whip them into shape.

year’s freshman team, and so far, it is an
unknown factor. Saturday's game wili be
a real test and will give a line on the
season's prospects. In spite of the enor
mous difficulties encountered, it is ex
pected that Oregon will once more iurn
put a winning team.
The Multnomah team is said to have
Fin unusually strong line and Coach Pliil
brook is counting largely on that to win
the victory for the Portlanders. Ilughie
McKenna, a former Columbia University
star, will appear in the club’s line-up, and
much is expected from him. The backfield
of the Winged-M has been greatly
strengthened lately by Fred Kehbein, a
former Lehigh University halfback.

If One Could Only
Sing Without Opening
One’s Mouth; But —
Wanted: Someone to discover how to
sing without opening the mouth.
The bright person who is fortunate
enough to invent some plan will be al
lowed to attend the community sing at
the armory. But unless such a one is dis
covered no University student will be
able to give his vocal cords and chords
exercise Friday night, according to an.
order issued by President Campbell at
the assembly Wednesday.
The people of Eugene and the students
of the University were to have a chummy
little gathering and display iheir patriot
ism and singing qualities. But the heultn
committee decided that such a rally would
raise a lot of dust, which would find
plenty of open doors during the rendition
of such things as the “Star Spangled
Fear that after such a rally there
would be more people who could say “I
opened my mouth and in-flu-enza,”
caused the abandonment of the idea.
Instead of letting the deadly germ cir
culate in a crowded armory, the students
are to hold a rally’all their own out on
Kincaid field to give the Cist football
game of the year the right kind of a

Rapid Spread of Colds and Grip
Brings Drastic Faculty
All campus and student social affairs
and public and studept gatherings ex
cept regular classes are prohibited until
further notice according to a special
announcement issued this morning by
John F. Mo card, chairman of the stu
dent health committee at the University.
Dangerous cases of influenza have not
yet developed the announcement states
but the number of severe colds and grip
pe and the danger of the rapid spread
of these as well as of th influenza make
it necessary that every means of pre
caution be taken to prevent an epidmie.
The whole number of cases at last re
port was 179
The total number of men confined
yesterday was 42. Of this number, 35
are at the Mercy hospital, three at the
Eugene hospital, 33 at the S. A. T. C.
hospital, three at home andr 55 confined
to quarters. Fifteen men of the O. T.
C. were reported sick yesterday.
The Kincaid house on Fourteenth and
Alder Streets is to be used as a tem
porary infirmary for the wo,men until
the house on University Avenue is ready
for occupation. Miss Margaret Morris
trained nurse will have charge of the
sick women here. Yesterday 17 cases
of bad colds among the women hal been
reported. Of these seven were Hen
dricks Ilall residents, four Alpha l’his,
one Tri f)elt, one Theta, two Kappas
and two outside girls. All serious cases
are to be moved to the Kincaid house.
Dean Ehrmann spoke to the Hen
dricks Hall girls yesterday urging them
to take every care of their health. She
announced that every girl must have a
thermometer in her room and not allow
the temperature to rise above 72 de
grees. This step was taken because most
of the girls had unconsciously kept
their rooms too warm.
“Emerald" Business Staff Short Hand
ca; Freshmen are Eligible,
Another vacancy <>n the staff of the
business manager of the Eincraid is
thrown open through the resignation of
Lee Bartholomew, who was appointed
recently after lie had secured some two
hundred subscriptions to the Emerald,
topping till tin* other solicitors. The
place will be filled from the business
staff which at present consists of but
two or three aside from Harris Ells
worth, maftnger.
The business staff is short handed, and
much in need of either girls or boys to
aid in gathering the advertising copy
for the Emerald, according to Ellsworth.
Freshmen are eligible to Mills activity.
New members of the staff will be given
a chance for the circulation manager
position to be vacated by Bartholomew.
The Emerald “O” awarded to the best
reporters and leading members of the
business staff last, year will be continued
this year, and with the present small
business staff practically every one be
ginning early in th eyear will be able to
get the award, Ellsworth said.

It is possible that the annual sopho
more-freshman mix, which in past years
has been a preliminary to the first foot
ball game to be played on the Oregon
campus and which this year was sched
uled to take place Saturday afternoon,
will be postponed a week because of the
epilemio of sickness which has swept the
Several men of the freshman and soph
omore classes are on the sick list, which,
with the fact that many of the huskies
of both classes will take part in the
football game Saturday afternoon, makes
it look advisable to members of both
aggregations to call the meet off until
the following Saturday. The mix can
then be staged us an individual feature
of the day.
Both classes are meeting this nfter

These few words need no explanation to
old men at Oregon. To the new men they
might be confusing. For years Oregon
students feeling the need of student body
spirit and Oregon fight, have held t pa

I before Oregon’s first football game. They
i have always been big jazz-arouset'a and
one of the things which students have
remembered in their after years. This
year is to be no exception. The parade
is to form at the library, on the campus,
at seven o’clock. EVERY MAX in the S
A. T. C. and if possible the O. T. (’., is
expected to be present AND wear his
pajamas. There is absolutely no limit to
the color, size or shape of raid articles
of raiment and in fact the louder and
more fancy they are the better the crowd
likes 'em. Costumes of all s'lts art' en
couraged. It is possible that a series of
prizes will be offered to the men who
appear in the best comical costume. If
