Oregon vol. 21 OREGON EMERALD, THURSDAY* OCTOBER 16, 1919 NO. 6 VARSITY SQUAD LEAVES TO PLAY IDAHO ELEVEN 16 Husky Players Board 7:25 Train This Morning • HUNTINGTON OPTOMISTIC; THINKS OREGON MAY WIN 1 Strowbridge Left Behind Because of Sickness—Steers and Williams To Play With the knowledge that Oregon was behind them as evinced by a small but loyal group of hastily dress ed students who rent the air with “Oskies” on the platform of the O—E. depot the varsity football team left this morning at 7:25 for Mos cow, Idaho, for the first conference game of the season with the Univer sity of Idaho Saturday. ' Sixten play ers made up the delegation, with coaches Huntington and Spellman, Trainer Bill Hayward, and Manager Bill Hollenbeck. The players who left were Martin Howard, Stan An derson, Ken Bartlett, E. Leslie, Keith Leslie, Bas Williams, Art Berg, A1 Harding, Carl Mautz, H. Huntington, Vincent Jacobberger, Francis Jacob berger, Clifford Manerude, Nish Chapman, Bill Steers and Everett Brandenburg. Coach Huntington did not have a lineup to offer. He will probably not select his first team until the morning of the contest. He is not overly optimistic concerning Oregon’s chances in the coming contest but feels that he has a good team and one which is in very good training considering the short time the play ers have been together. Little is known of the Idaho team but for the fact that it has a number of old men back in the ranks. Saturday’s con test will be the first game of this season for the Moscow men. Ed Strowbridge, backfield man who played good ball against Multnomah last Saturday was forced to remain behind on this trip as he is suffering from a sever case of poison oak. It is probable that Bill Steers will be used in the lineup at quarter for the first time this year, next Saturday. Coach Huntington did not feel that Bill should be used in the Mult nomah game as he had not been out for practice long enough to get in trim. Bas Williams will also pro bably be used at either guard or tackle. /i. /2s When the Varsity football team left the depot on the train bound for Moscow this morning it almost left be hind it something which has been on almost every trip the team has made for the past two years, and from the present looks, of things will be for sev eral years to come. That “thing" was a “Jacobberger.” Two of them went along on this trip, Vine and Francis. Vine barely caught the train as it pulled out of the depot, by hard running, while Francis, encumbered with a “Charley horse." could only hobble slow ly and watch it disappear. A few blocks from the depot however, “the younger Jake” succeeded in stopping the train to allow “Jake the elder” to catch it. College Campus Soon Shall See Crime Carnival Murders, thievery, lynchings, shoot ings, robbery, in fact the whole cur riculum of crime, and then some, will be pulled. off during the spring term at the University of Oregon. The scene of this premeditated wickedness may be any old place that comes handy. The perpretators are respecters of neither persons or buildings. A co-ed will be in pre cisely the same degree of danger as a man. This era of strife and bloodshed Is being planned and fathered by Prof. Sam B. Warner of the department of law. The purpose is to furnish first hand material for the wouldbe barristers. It is the belief of Prof. Warner that each student will gladly respond at any time he may be called upon to be murdered. In trying these desperate cases the professor proposes to use as juries, men and women picked indiscrimin ately from the student body. A ticket to the movies will serve as compensation for this assistance. “This will be the first time that mock trials have ever been attempt ed for the benefit of the law school.” said Mr. Warner PHI THETA KAPPA TO INSTALL HERE Commerce Women Get Charter of National Honorary Fraternity Organized in 1916 Phi Theta Kappa, a national hon orary fraternity for women majoring in commerce, w'ill install a chapter on the Oregon campus, probably some time next week, according to Nell Warwick, one of the charter members of the local organization. The char ter has already arrived. The society was founded in the school of com merce at the University of Denver in 1916, which department is recog nized as excellent throughout the middle west, according to Dean D. Walter Morton, of the Oregon school of commerce. The charter members are Lucille Stanton, Frankie Adams, Lenore Blaesing, Ronalda Cameron, Dorothy Donlon, Edna Howd, Esther Fell, Mar garet Fell, Evelyn Grebe, Mary He gardt, Nell Warwick, Rachel Parker, Anne D. Shea, Barbara Sheppard, Thelma Stanton and Mildred Aumil ler. i ALUMNI TO BE URGED FOR FESTIVITIES _ Miss Fenton Leaves for Portland to Promote Homecoming Miss Charlie Fenton, alumni secre tary, leaves Friday for Portland to speak before the Portland alumni, who will gather at the Benson hotel Saturday noon for luncheon to make plans for attending Oregon’s great homecoming. Miss Fenton, who has been devoting most of her time late ly to making plans for getting as many as possible of the University’s old students back for the event, will outline the plans for homecoming and try to get the Portland chapter to come here in a body November 15. She will then go to Salem and help organize a local alumni chapter there, returning Tuesday to the cam pus again. HIGH SCHOOL DEBATE SCHEDULE ARRANGED; EINALS HERE IN MAY 200 Institutions Eligible; 12 Winners to be Brought Junior Week-End Finals for the Oregon High School Debating league will be held on the University campus junior week-end. May 12, 13 and 14, according to R. W. Prescott, professor of public speaking, who is secretary of the league. Some question connected with the league of nations issue will be chosen for the last debate. Two hundred high schools of the state are eligible for entrance into this league. The state has been di vided into 12 districts and each of these, Professor Prescott announces, will have a separate question for the preliminary tryouts to be con tested in January, February and March. The 12 district winners will meet for the semi-finals and finals at the University in Eugene as a factor of punior week-end. Up to last year only the finals were de bated in Eugene. In 1918 the four teams remaining in the semi-finals were brought here and the plan prov ed so successful that it was decided to bring all 12 district winners here in future years. The trophy for the winner is the cup put up by the Laurean Literary society of the University and E. E. DeCou, professor of mathematics, who was the first president of the league. The cup goes into the permanent possession of any team winning the championship three times. Salem high school has now won two legs and needs but one more victory to take the trophy. Eugene high school was the winner last year, for the first time, taking a close contest from Bend, the runner-up. George W. Hug, superintendent of schools at McMinnville, is president of the league. UNIVERSITY HEALTH IS GOOD Infirmary Has Few Patients—Only Fever and Throat Cases The University seems to be a heal thy place in the opinion of Dr. E. H. Sawyer, physician at the infirmary. At present there is only one bed patient and at no time this year have more than two or three been con fined at the infirmary. According to Dr. Sawyer this is a fine record when the number of students in the Uni versity is considered. So far the cases have been either fever or throat. At present a great number are coming for treatment for colds, but none of these are serious. Y.M.DRIVE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY EVENING 350 Sign Up by Wednesday; Red and Blues Combine to Rush Campaign The membership drive for the earn* pus Y. M. C. A. has been extended until Friday evening. This decision was reached last night by the com mittee in charge of the campaign. Roy Veatch, speaking on behalf of the committee, said that the drive had taken well on the campus but un avoidable obstacles had delayed the progress of the campaign. In the three days allotted for the drive the canvassers have been unable to reach all the boys, as many of them are scattered about Eugene. The drive up to Wednesday even ing had netted about 350 members, or half the quota set at the begin ning. Although this has not satis fied the leaders in the movement, they are nevertheless gratified with the spirit which they have met on all sides. They feel that the “Y” needs more members in order to carry out the program already out lined for the year, and it is with this in view that every effort is to be made to reach the quota of 700 mem bers by Friday night. The closing days of the campaign are to be covered in a slightly differ ent manner from the first. The “reds” and “blues” have combined into one team and will cover all ter ritory as effectively as possible in the short time remaining. Announce ments in assembly this morning will help in giving further publclty to the drive. The Y triangle, Roy Veatch ex plained stands for the development of spirit, mind and body alike. But these are kept separate in the ac tivities of the organization and no attempt will be made to impose one upon the other, he said. The University Y is purely a cam pus organization and has always had the best men on the campus behind it. The work of the organization for this year according to its leaders, is not to meet criticism with alibis, but to carry on a work in behalf of Old Oregon that is above criticism. With this end to work for they are now bending every effort to enlist the support of the majority of the men on the campus. Dean Morton in Portland Professor D. Walter Morton, dean of the school of commerce, left yes terday for Portland, where he will attend to business connected with the extension department of the University. He expects to return Friday. Here’s Another Chance to Hop Y. M. - Y. IV. Mix to be Lively “Is there a dance Friday night?” Surest tiling in the world, and if vou are interested, just note what is going to happen. An annual mix is staged by the Y. W. C. A. together with the Y. M. Now it might be possible to label this coming affair a mix but it will be far different from any of those staged in the past. This party will take the form of a student body dance, and better than that, it will be featured by special music and “good eats,” and, still better, not a penny will be charged. What more can be desired? Dean Elizabeth Fox suggested that such a party be given as she thought the students would respond more heartily to dancing than anything else. The committee was formed Monday, the members beirg Vivian Chandler, Adah McMurphey, Elmo Madden, Mabyl Waller, Art Johnson and Lindsay McArthur. Arrange ments were immediately made to polish the floor and dust the chairs in the men’s gymnasium. Warning is here issued that when one enters the gym doors Friday evening the committee will not be held responsible it' ho cannot resist dancing, for music has been secured to tantalize the feet. Dancing will start aboutc 8:30 and will stop at 9:30 in order that a short musical program and palate ticklers can bo introduced. The tripping will then be resumed and will continue until 11:30. Summarizing—Friday night at 3:30 o’clock — men’s gym—dancing, pro grarn, eats—music with “zang”—free admission. Come! ° Tug-of-Warriors Train on Puffed Rice and Biscuit Shredded wheat biscuits and puffed rice has been the diet and “Butch” Weigel and Nish Chapman have been the coaches. Saturday morning will be the big battle and the mill race will be the scene. For this the Delta and Beta freshmen have been in training since the first week of col lege and according to all reports their tug of war will make last Saturday's mix look tame. The mere matter of weight, indi vidually and collectively, will not be the deciding factor, as both sides claim that proper rooting will be at least one-half the fight. Clever slo gans, such as "Pull again, boys” and “Hasten, brethren” have been orig inated by the opposing teams and will be used at certain climax by the yell leaders. Not. until the event full morning will the names of the yell leaders be announced although talkative members of the teams h'ave hinted broadly that Richard Martin will use the Beta megaphone and Mort Brown the Delta cornucopia. According to the coaches both teams are in splendid condition and if the puffed rice holds cut until Saturday morning the outcome seems beyond prediction. Reports yesterday from the Beta cook showed only two remaining shredded wheat biscuits. This difficulty, however, is balanced by the fact that three Delt freshmen have broken arches. CASWELL'S CLASSES TAUGHT BY CHICAG02AN Princeton Research Scholarship Takes Physicist—Geo. S .Monk Will Substitute Professor Geo. S. Monk, a gradu ate of the University of Chicago, is now assisting in the physics depart ment in the absence of Dr. A. E. Caswell, who is attending Princeton University, having been awarded a fellowship by the National Research council. Professor Monk was formerly re search assistant at both Yerkes and Mount Wilson observatories. Dr. Caswell, who has published sev eral articles on physics, was chosen to attend Princeton in order that he might continue his research work on “The Behavior of Electrons in Me tals.” Those chosen by the research council are men who have distin guished themselves in research work. From all present information, Doctor Caswell is the only Pacific coast man to receive this scholarship. His family accompanied him on his trip east, leaving Eugene on Septem ber B. In a letter to Dr. W. P. Boyn ton he said the course would last for a period of 4C weeks, beginning Sept. 22. Dr. CaswelJ expects to be back on the campus next summer. MUSIC SCHOOL CROWDED Four Practice Rooms and Studio Add ed to Accommodate Students With a registration vastly larger than that of any previous year, the school of music is finding it difficult, says Dr. John J. Landsbury, dean, to handle the student senrolled, evon with the remodeling of the building, which has furnished four more prac tice rooms and a studio to accommo date the five new pianos purchased this fall. Even with .this added number of instruments all of the practice hours are completely filled, and it is ne cessary for some of the students to practice in che down town churches. The remodeling of the assembly room into practice rooms leaves no place In the building where assemblies may be held. As it is, it is impos sible to conduct the work that should be done, in the building, in the pres ent accommodations. EMM MEMBERS III SCHOOL OF MUSIC ENIERTMI ASSEMBLY Albert Lukken, Rex Underwood Heard; President Talks of Pledge Day ROOSEVELT FUND OUTLINED Campbell Explains Importance of Getting Started Right—Exam ination System Reviewed Musical selections by new mem bers of tl.e faculty were the feature of the assembly program held today in Villard hall at 11 o'clock. Albert Lukken of Chicago, graduate of the University of Wyoming, now head of the voice department at the Uni versity, sang the prologue from Pag liacci by Leoncavallo. For encore he sang a little southern character song, “Me an’ My Little Banjo.” Rex Un derwood, instructtor of violin in the school of music, played two selec tions—“Pierrot Serenade” from Ran digger and “Tamborin Chenois” by Fritz Kreisler. Dr. Joseph Schafer explained the organization and the purpose of the Roosevelt Memorial fund. A joint committee meeting of faculty and students will be held today to arrange plan for canvassing the campus. The plan of the organization is to estab lish a Roosevelt monument, in the city of Washington and perhaps smaller memorials elsewhere. President Makes Announcements Several announcements were made by President Campbell. Next as sembly will be known as Pledge day for the students of the University. The governor is expected or al least one of his representatives. An nouncement was also made that Dean Fox is to speak tomorrow in Guild hall on her travels in France. An admission of ten cents will be charg ed to help toward the completion of the Women’s building. President Campbell gave the stu dents a short talk on the importance of getting started right in their col lege work for the year. In speak ing of the crowded condition of class rooms and quiet places to study, the president asked the co operation of the student body to help better the corgestion. Arrangements are being made for study hours in the evenings in many of the build ings on the campus. The classes in economics have already made these arrangements. Friendly Hall Remodeling An addition to the Friendly hall dining room is now under construc tion with the hope of making room for 200 more students at meals. Stu dents knowing of places with the townspeople where board and room might be obtained were urged to turn in the names either to Dean Straub or Dean Fox. President Campbell also explained ttie system of examination that is now in vogue at the University. Any student falling below the nine-hour minimum would be put on probation during the following term, under dir ect supervision of the probation com mittee. Should the student fall be low the minimum in hours during the second term it will necessitate a little vacation on his or her part, stated President Campbell, until such a time as the probation committee would see fit to reinstate the student. Rev. A. M. Spangler, secretary of the campus Y. M. C. A., asked that every man and woman on the campus join either the Y.M.C.A. or the Y.W. C. A.
