Lack Of Practice
And Coaching;
Crfemawa Men Do No Advance Into
Frosh Territory Once
The Oregon freshmen walked on
the Chemawa Indians this afternoon
on Kincaid field by the score of 34
to 0. The game was devoid of any
very great feature of interest ex
cepting the runs of Frankie Hill,
which afforded some life to the con
test. Hill got away with a run for
over 30 yards around right end in
the initial period and crossed the
line for Oregon’s first counter of
the afternoon. Nuckols, for the In
dians, was taken out early in the
game and Joe Betties was sent in.
He was the life of the freshmen's
King scored the second touchdown
in the first quarter and Holmes kick
ed both goals, giving the first year
men a 14 to 0 lead at the end of the
quarter. If any playing stood out
it was the work of Hill and King in
the first part of the game. In the
second quarter King scored for the
Frosh and Holmes kicked the goal.
In the second Kratz started chang
ing his lineup, sending in additional
men for a chance. In the third per
iod Hill and King both got away for
touchdowns, which ended the scor
ing. The Indians presented some
new faces this time as some of those
in the lineup have just returned from
service in the army. One of the
men was wounded in service. The
“Braves” are heavier and have a
likely looking aggregation but they
showed the lack of practice. The
center, Johnson, made several poor
passes that caused his team to lose
considerable yardage.
The game did not call for any very
hard playing on the part of the
Frosh and few of their plays were
stopped on the line of scrimmage.
Forward passes did not feature very
heavily although the Indians got
by with a couple for yardage.

Has Record of 32 Wins Out of 36
Games While Tutoring Wasco
County’s Proteges
Robert “Bob” Murray, for several
seasons coacli of The Dalles high
school athletic teams, is expected tg,
arrive on the campus Monday to
join the staff of coaches here, accord
ing to word received from The Dalles
yesterday. Murray has established
himself as one of the most success
ful coaches that has ever handled a
high school football team in the
state and his success at The Dalles
places him among the front rank of
scholastic coaches.
During the time that Murray han
dled the Wasco county offerings at
The Dalles high school. He has but
one defeat chalked up against his
team, three tie games and 32 wins
out of a total of 36 games played.
Numbered among the men that Mur
ray has tutored during their high
school days are “Shy” Huntington,
coach of the Varsity, Hollis Hunting
ton, “Bill” Steers and Dow Wilson.
Murray held a captain’s commis
sion in the army and was stationed
in California at the time Oregon
played the University of California
last year. Murray officiated in this
game. He also handled a number
of the contests played by the Mare
Island Marine team last year.
The Dalles is exceptionally well
represented on the football team at
the present time. With the addition
of Murray there will be four, two as
coaches and two as members of the
Changed Ruling Affects Organization
Average But Not That of
A new factor was added to the
contest between the various dormi
tories and fraternities for scholarship
honors yesterday when the registrar
and the faculty intellectual activities
committee decided on a new method
of scoring points.
Up to the present time the grades
of every member in the house have
been added up each term and aver
aged, but there have been two sorts
of records that have been left out
of the counting. Honor students,
who under the rule received no grade
were not counted, and students who
withdrew were not counted. The
other students were rated on the
following basis: F—0, incomplete—1,
P—2, M—3, S—4, H—5. The work
o# the tsudents whose grades were
not counted, that is the honor stu
dents and the students withdrawing,
naturally operated on the total as
if they were average grades count
ing three.
Under the new rules the honor stu
dent grade and the withdrawal grade
will no longer be equivalent to M,
but a distinction will be drawn. The
honor student will earn six points
for his house, one more than the H
student, while the student who with
draws from a course will earn two
points only, or, in other words, will
be rated as a P student instead of
an M student. This ruling affects
the house average and not the in
dividual average.
Annual Ceremony to be Fea
ture Thursday; Governor
May be Present
Next Thursday will he Pledge Day
I at the University. Governor 15. \V. 01
cott has been invited to read the
! pledge ol' loyalty to be responded tc*
| by the students at the morning as
sembly. J. A. Churchill, superinten
dent of public instruction of the
state, will probably be present to
| address the student body at this time
and will represent the governor in
case he is unable to be here. Among
the other speakers will be Judge J.
W. Hamilton of Roseburg, Henry W.
McKinney of Baker and Vernon
Vawter of Medford, all members of
the board of regents. Special music
has been provided for the assembly
and arrangements are being made for
seating all members of the faculty
and students in Villard hall.
Pledge day was instituted at the
University about ten years ago in
order to call attention to the obliga
tion University students owe to their
state in return for the college edu
cation they receive at its expense,
and to urge upon them the duty of
repaying through their service as
good citizens of the commonwealth.
The pledge is:
“As a student at the University
which is maintained by the people
of Oregon, I heartily acknowledge
the obligation I owe. The opportun
ities open to me here for securing
training, ideals and vision for life,
I deeply appreciate, and regard as a
sacred trust, and do hereby pledge
my honor that it shall be my most
cherished purpose to render as boun
tiful a return to the Oregon people
and their posterity, in faithful and
ardent devotion to the common good,
as will be in my power. It shall be
the aim of my life to labor for the
highest good and glory of an ever
greater commonwealth.”
Student Committees to Work in All
Campus Organizations—No
Quota Set
The drive for contributions for the
Roosevelt Memorial fund will start
on the campus as well as throughout
the United States on Monday. Stu
dent committees acting under the
general studerit and faculty commit
tees will visit all the organizations
on the campus next week.
“No quota has been assigned to
the University and probably no
quota will be assigned,” Professor
Sam Bass Warner, chairman of the
faculty committee, said this morn
ing. “The idea of the drive,” he
said, “is to have each student give a
small contribution, not to raise a
large amount. The national commit
tee wants each student to have the
opportunity of contributing something
to this fund, but it is not intended
that this amount be a large one or
a hardship to anyone. The amount
which each student will be asked to
contribute will probably not exceed
ten cents."
Working with Professor Warner on
his committee are Professor Robert
W. Prescott and Professor P. U.
Crockatt. Stan Anderson, president
of the Students whose grades were
I Herman Lind as chairman of the
! student committee, with Jack Bene
fiel and Marjorie Kay as associate
j members of the committee.
Campus headquarters will be es
I tablished at the Y hut for the men
I on the house committees and at the
j Y. M C. A. bungalow' for the women.

Desired Quota Not Reached by Teams
in Recent Drive
i _
The Y. M. C. A. campaign for mem
berships had reached approximately
1400 at the close of the drive last
: night, according to John Houston,
captain of the Reds, which is far
short of tlie quota set by the men in
charge of the work. The Reds have
135 to their credit and the Hines 200.
Even though the campaign proper
is closed, any man wishing to join
may hand his subscription in at the
Y hut at any time, as the leaders
feel that the program planned for
this winter cannot be carried on
with an inadequate membership. “En

A slogan, “Home to Win Again,

$6 prize offered will be given to
the women’s building fund.
Miss Charlie Fenton, secretary of
the Alumni association, • announced
today that circular letters wero to

Lemon-yellow stickers with their
message of homecoming arc to cover
a portion of all letters sent out by
students. Preparations are being
made to serve luncheon to six thou
sand persons in both men’s gym
nasiums before the game. A plat
form is to be built so that stunts can
be given by the men's organizations,
this taking place in connection with
the bonfire directly after the riotous
rally. These stunts will be new to
Homecomings, but as a likely prize
will be offered to the winner, they
should be a worth-while introduction
to the rally speeches.

Puffed-Rice Diet
Wins; Delt Frosh
Beat Betas in Tug
The diet of puffed rice wins.
Shredded excelsior and ilaked saw
dust have been relegated to the scrap
heap. So have the Beta frosh. The
Delt freshmen won.
Promptly at 11 o’clock this morn
ing the Delta Tau freshmen, raised on
Bubbles of Blood and dieted on Per
kins’ Predigested Prunes, gathered in
the back yard of the Kappa Sig house
to do watery combat with the 12th
and Mill street frosh, fattened on
the famous Beta Theta pies.
The Betas won the toss and chose
the Kappa Sig side of the mill race.
The rope was produced, the yell
leaders advanced, the freshmen en
couraged and the pull was on.
There were just two movements,
as Dean Landsbury might say. One
occurred when the Beta frosh hit the
water—the other, \yhen the Delt
frosh hit for the tall timber.
The Delts, after they had pulled
the Betas into the race, were kind
enough to pull them out again. The
freshmen held onto the rope, sailed
across the race and were up on the
opposite bank in a minute’s time.
From the instant when Del Ober
touffer, pivot man for the Betas, have
his first jerk, until Hugh Claren,
anchor man for the same team was
on the opposite bank, did not take
more than two minutes.
The Delt freshmen did not wait for
: congratulations. They took one look
at their wet classmates and dis
appeared from the scene.
Senior Mustache Race Started
Soup Strainers Soon to Sprout
The annual senior moustache race
is on. Tall seniors, small seniors,
medium seniors, fat seniors, sedate
seniors, worried seniors—all have
but one aim in view, one ambition in
life—the raising and nourishing of
the prize lip shade.
It is to be a square race. Dean
Straub has been voted down as a i
Judge, but he is said to have sworn ‘
to stand by his guns, and see that i
the freshmen get a fair deal.
Judges for the contest have not as '
yet. “SpTig” Carter is sai'l. by his ■
of the senior class are busy discuss-1
ing possible candidates. President ■
Campbell was prominently mention
ed, but as a rumor had spread about
: that he had shaved off his moust
taehe, or at least, had it cut down,
i his name was laid on the shelf.
All the burlier shops In town have
been visited surreptitiously (?) by
the seniors. A special S.O.S. call
has been sent to San Francisco by
the local barbers, and a trainload of
Egyptian Marvel Harr Restorers, and
the First Row’s Last Chance is re
ported to be on the way.
It is too early in the contest to
tabulate any oi the contestants as
yet. “Sprig” Carter is saaid by his
fraternity brothers to have a light
shadow on his upper lip, but other
seniors declare that he took a mean
advantage and got a head start. Mor
ris Morgan, senior prexy, is also said
to have a baseball moustache (nine
on a side) started. Another one
accused is Herin Lind, but his friends
contend that lie should have a handi
cap of at least two weeks.
