REVIVE THIS CUSTOM
Thursday afternoon the varsity
football team and substitutes will
leave for Moscow, Idaho, where they
will play the first conference game of
the season with the University of
Idaho eleven Saturday afternoon.
In pre-bellum dayB it was always
the custom of every student in the
University to form a parade and
march to the train where they staged
a rally and saw the team leave. The
band was out for this occasion and
Oregon spirit was as supreme as it
was on the gridiron. The team mem
bers left for the scene of contest
filled with fight and a desire to bring
home victory to the students whom
they left cheering on the depot plat
During the past two years this
custom lias been sadly neglected and
our athletic teams have left for con
quests on alien fields without so
much as a single student at the train
to let them know that Oregon, the
school they were going to light for,
was behind them in tlielr efforts.
This old custom must be revived,
and next Thursday afternoon is the
time to do it. Just a suggestion:
Put the members of the football team
who are leaving in carriages which
could easily bo pulled to the depot
from the campus by a corps of able
bodied freshmen. Put our newly or
ganized band at the head of the pro
cession and following the carriages
should lie a parade made up of every
man and woman in the University.
Hy doing this we would not only show
the team that we want them to win
but wo would get a great deal of
fun in doing it.

to a schedule and question for the

QIIOTA TO GLUMi
SESSION AT CORVALLIS
Oregon Delegates Will Invite
Federation to Campus For
A full quota of delegates to the
convention of the Oregon State Fed
eration of Women’s Clubs in Cor
vallis is being sent by the University
of Oregon. The University’s enroll
ment of 707 women allows represen
tation of 16 delegates at the con
vention, which opened yesterday and
will close Thursday. While at the
convention Oregon’s delegates will
extend an invitation to the federation
to convene next year on the Univer
One of the principal items of
business of the convention will be
the election of federation officers.
Candidates for the presidency are
Miss Mattie Beatty of Salem and
Mrs Ida Callahan, a member of the
faculty of Oregon Agricultural col
lege. Louise Davis, president of wo
men’s league, said: “The Women’s
league does not go on record as
taking sides in the matter of favor
ing a candidate for the presidency.
Each delegate is to vote according
to her own conscience.”
Dean Elizabeth Fox, Miss Lilian
Tingle, Mrs. Prince L. Campbell and
Louise Davis left last night for Cor
vallis. Miss Fox, Miss Tingle and
Mrs. Campbell are not delegates of
Women’s league, but are represent
ing the University. The other 15
delegates will make the trip to Cor
vallis tonight, as excuses from classes
will be granted for only two days.
While in Corvallis Miss Fox will be
the guest of Miss Ava Milam of the
home economics department of O. A.
C. Representatives of the Women’s
league are the following: Louise
Davis, Nell Warwick, Eileen Tom
kins, Ethel Wakefield, Theodora Stop
penbach, Era Godfrey, Mabyl Weller,
Alice Hamm, Marjorie Kay, Marjorie
Holaday, Alice Thurston, Dorothy
Duniway, Jennie Maguire.
During both of the men’s and wom
en’s meetings the sentiment has been
to form a permanent inter-fraternity
and inter-sorority forensic council to
have charge of intromural debate and
it is the plan of Professor R. W. Pres'
cott, in charge of all university de
baters, to have this done some time
during the year.
Other questions discussed thorough
ly during the meeting last Friday
were the railroad problem, education,
and the labor question, but immigra
tion seemed to be the most to the
point and was finally decided upon.
Only slight changes have been
made in the rules governing dough
nut debate. Four men or women will
compose the team with ten minute
speeches and four four-minute re
but alls. Last year’s speeches were
cut down to six minutes. No elim
inations will be made until the sec
ond round is started.

SATURDAY’S GAME SHOWS
MUCH TO BE DESIRED
(Continued from page 1)
“Spike” Leslie’s Position Safe
“Spike” Leslie handled the position
of left tackle in a most creditable
manner. “Spike” is another of the
oldtimers that can be relied upon and
those on the sidelines have nothing
to fear as to the aggressiveness of
the Varsity with him on the line. In
the game Saturday “Spike’s” playing
was not spectacular enough to at
tract the attention of Walter Camp in
his selection of the all-American ele
ven, but is looked mighty good from
the standpoint of an Oregon sup
The one place on the line that looks
a trifle weak is left end. Howard
was playing against a hard man
to handle in Teggert but if he ex
pects to keep his place on the Var
sity he will have to hold his own with
men of similar rank throughout the
As long as Brandenberg is laid up
and Vince Jacobberger is kept in the
backfield the Oregon team is going
to be handicapped on the end. When
“Brandy” is able to get back into
the lineup and Vince Jacobberger is
shitted to the end the Varsity is
going to be Just that much stronger.
Oregon was penalized at least 60
yards during the afternoon for off
side credited to left end.
F. Jacobberger Plays Good Game
In the backfleld Francis Jacob
berger played the best game Saturday
that he has ever shown on the Ore
gon campus. His one fault, that cut
down his efficiency last season, wa?
noticeable again in Saturday’s con
test. This is his habit of stopping
dead and attempting to dodge a
tackle. In one department Francis
excelled Saturday and that was his
punting. His kicks averaged in the
neighborhood of 50 yards and in this
respect he outshone the work of
Murphy for the clubmen. Murphy,
however, did good work when it
came to advancing the ball and
handling his team.
Manerude Shines at Quarter
"Skeet” Manerude came through
with flying colors in the short time
that he served as quarter for the
Varsity “Skeet” proved himself in
the estimation of some, »to be, next
to Steers, the best field general that
the Varsity has to offer. Manerude's
selection of plays and players to
carry out his selections wars very
good. “Skee1” put over a nice drop
kick in the final period fro n the ”0
yard line for the last counter of the
Varsity of the afternoon.
Two Halves Look Good
The star of the contest was unques
tionably Ed Strowbridge. He made
some of the nicest gains through the
hue that have been seen for. several
seasons on- the local gridiron Tli!s
is one player that is going to cause
no end of trouble to the opposing
linemen before the end of the season.
When it came to off tackle plays
i nee Jacobberger made a name for
n n.self. These two halves, 8 trow
bridge and Jacobberger, left very
little to be desired and this depart
ment looks safe for the present.
llollis Huntington at his post at
fullback did not show up with any
great amount of brilliancy, but his
work was steady and he will probably
be better as the season advances.
He made some nice gains during
the afternoon and as soon as he
gets going with Bill Steers a quarter
these two should show’ some of the
conference lines a few new offerings
along the lines of steam rollers.
Team Work Not Finished
The work of the entire team did
not have the finished appearance
that is desired before they clash with
either O. A. C. or Washington State
college. Oregon has no more than
an even break to win the honors of
the northwest and a few more in
juries. like that of Brandenburg and
Blake, or a few more of the men
being forced to give up the game, as
was Joe Trowbrodge, and Oregon will
have a slim chance for the title.
The Varsity needs more support
from the student body and when they
leave for Idaho this week-end for
the first of the conference struggles
every student should be at the train
to give them a sendoff like that which
was given to the team of 1916. The
present team deserves the undivided
support of the student body and as
few can make the trip to the site
of the Idaho university to see the
game the best that can be done is to
get' out for the sendoff.
