UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, OREGON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1920
Game With Winged “M”
Will Open 1921 Season on
TWENTY POUNDS LIGHT
Greatest Task to Stop Bucks
of Multnomah; Little Work
Done in Defensive.
If there nre any admirers of the Oil
more Dobie style of coaching which
proved so popular at the University of
Washington a few years ago, in Eugene
tomorrow, they will in all probability
have an opportunity to see this system
in operation against Coach Huntington’s
eleven. Coach Dorman, of the Multno
mah aggregation which comes here for
the opening game of the season tomor
row afternoon, has been drilling his squad
for the past two months and it is gener
ally understood that this will be Dor
man’s mode of offensive and defensive
attack in tomorrow’s game.
Coach Dorman was a former pupil of
Dohie’s when the latter was heading the
Washington squad, and he played a back
field position under Dobie’s tutelage. As
to just how much this style of playing
will avail against the lemon-yellow var
sity can be better determined after the
first few minutes of play tomorrow af
Oregon Backs Outweighed.
E(1 Strowbridge, former baekfield man
for Oregon, “Bill” Holden, big star for
the past several years on the Multno
mah aggregation, '‘Pudge” Brown and
“Gene” Murphy, both of whom have been
playing for the past several.years with
the winged “M”, will probably make up
the baekfield of the club team. If that
is the case the Oregon baekfield will be
outweighed some 20 or more pounds to
the man, and Oregon’s line will be taxed
to the utmost when big “Bill” Holden
starts his off-tackle bucks.
If Oregon wins tomorrow’s game it
will not be brawn that does the job,
but rather the superior speed of the Ore
gon eleven. Multnomah is known to have
a slow line and although big and plenti
fully supplied with beef, they lack the
pep and snap which always characterizes
Coach Spellman and Huntington’s line
men. “Stan” Anderson and Donaldsen
are slated to handle the end position for
the Multnomah eleven. The ability of
Anderson is well known to Oregon stu
dents on account of his previous perform
ance and Donaldsen has been playing
with the club team for the past several
“M” Ends Fast.
Oregon can expect no advantage over
the ends in the game. “Mart” Howard
who was Anderson’s running mate at end
last year on the lemon-yellow will prob
ably be in that capacity in the game, the
handling of the other end position will
fall to “Rud” Brown, “Hugh” Clerin, or
Neil Morfitt according to present dope.
Last night’s scrimmage workout was
the last for the week and tonight’s work

Like Red Cross I
“I didn’t, know they had a recon
struction hospital for war wrecks in
Eugene,” observed a new student
the other day as he pass'd the Sigma
Chi house at a moment when all the
house crutches were being displayed
oh the front porch.
The S. X.’s home has, for a fact,
presented an appearance of hospital
ity, i. e., a la hospital, ever since
their permanent boarders began to
drift back to the family fireplace.
There are Ray Vester and Johnny
Palmer to form the background for
the setting and numerous minor in
juries such as Horace Brier’s black
eye to help keep up the surgical at
mosphere of the house.
Ray Vester came to grief as the
result of a fall. Ray says that it
was the sudden stop rather than the
fall that did the damage.
Johnny Palmer was also the victim
of a fall. In his case he was the
fallee rather than the fuller, how
ever. A lumber pile was the active
agent this time.
It is said that the Sigma Chi
h’ouse manager is trying to arrange
a trade with the infirmary whereby
the two would exchange houses.
Representatives ,to Gather
That delegates from all organized
houses on the campus will meet on Sat
urday morning to indicate their prefer
ence in dates for dances for this year
was decided at a meeting of the social
affairs committee on Tuesday. Oct. 5.
The committee, consisting of Dean Fox,
chairman. Miss Perkins, Dean Straub,
Professor Milne, Professor Dunn, and
the following student members: Leta
Kiddle, Maud Barnes, Don Newbury and
Elmer Pendell, had as its guests at Tues
day’s meeting Dean Dyment, John Hous
ton. chairman of the social committee of
student council, and Clarlton Savage,
president of the A. S. U. O.
Dean Fox wishes to remind the stu
dents that the tentative engagement of
dates does not release them from filing
a formal petition in the offices of the
Rules Explained in Booklet.
Emphasis was also' placed upon the
proper understanding of the ‘’Living. So
cial and Disciplinary Rules” which ap
pear on page 33 and following pages in
the booklet entitled “University Regula
tions.” Because of the explanations
given in this booklet, it was decided that
no student or organization has any le
gitimate reason for misunderstanding the
rules of the University.
The committee urges that Friday, Oct.
15, be kept free from any campus activi
ties, so that the churches may have one
uninterrupted evening for holding parties
for the students in the church rooms.
Johnny Houston will soon have a re
port of all student body dances for this
year with a list of the chaperones for
Next Meeting October 19.
A letter which will later be given pub
licity is being sent to the student council
from the social affairs committee inter
preting the University regulations which

meeting of the committee. At that time
a large number of guests will be present,
including all -the men and women who
were patrons and patronesses at dances

PRES P. L. CAMPBELL
URGES HONOR SYSTEM
IN ASSEMBLY SPEECH
Students Advised to Assume
More Responsibilities in
HOMECOMING WEEK- ,
END PLANS OUTLINED
Emerald Editor and Manager
to Receive Share of
Appearing before the Associated Stu
dents of the University of Oregon at
the first business meeting of the college
year in Villard hall yesterday morning,
President P. L. Campbell urged the adop
tion of an honor system in student af
fairfs, and, further, urged the students
to assume more of the responsibilities of
governing the institution. An audience
that packed the hall to the doors gave
vent to enthusistic applause at the con
clusion of the address.
Because of the fact that Oregon is des
tined to become in ensuing years a much
greater state than it now is, said the
President, it will need a high standard of
citizenship; a citizenship that will be
alive too the public duties and responsi
bilities and one that will be able to han
dle them. As prospective leaders in the
affairs of the state in years to come, the
students were urged to learn all that they
could, while in college, of self-govern
ment of the higher type. This, the Presi
dent held—and he said that the rest of
the faculty agreed with him—could best
be attained by the introduction of an
honor system, and a deeper and more in
timate knowledge of self - government
among the students at the University.
System Will Work Here.
While he admitted the failure of the
plan in some of the eat tern institutions,
he said that it was his belief that the
system was generally sound and that it
should be able to work happily at Ore
gon. Some time next month President
Campbell expects to visit the so-called
fountain-head of the honor system, the
University of Virginia, and will make a
detailed investigation of affairs as they
are at that institution.
John Huston told of the preparations
being made for Homecoming week, No
vember 12, 13 and 13, and asked the stu
dent body to help in any and every way
possible to make the affair successful so
that it will be remembered as the best
ever held on the campus. Reports from
different committee chairman, Wayne
Akers, of the campus committee, Don
Davis, of the Friday night student body
committee, and from Remcy Cox, who is
handling collegiate debate, were given.
An amendment to the constitution of
the Associated Students that will pro
vide for a maximum of $400 to be given
each year to both the editor and busi
ness manager of the Oregon Daily Emer
od as a reward for extra effort in the
interests of the publication put forth,
providing that the earnings of the paper
will cover it, was introduced by Harris
Ellsworth, seconded by John Houston,
and passed without a dissenting vote.
Any amount above the $400 will be di
vided between the two executives and
the A. S. U. O. on a 50-50 basis.
Music from the combined Men’s and
Women’s Glee clubs, under the direction
of John Stark Evans, of the school of
music, was a feature of ihe meeting.
OREGON CLUB MEETS
Byron Garrett, president of the Men’s
Oregon Club, appointed Carl Epping,
Wilbur Bolton and Roy Veatch, chair
man. on the constitutional committee
Tuesday. The committee named to ar
range for a smoker consists of Norton
Winnard, chairman, Emerald Slogan, and
Charles iGratke. The appointment of
Phil Brogan, chairman, Glen Walkley and
Virgil DeLap on the budget committee
was announced by Garrett. These com
mittees are to submit their reports to
the next meeting of the Oregon Club,

ing, alu uni and fviends of the University
who will be here for the big events ..a
Friday and Saturday, November 12 and
in, will witness the largest Homecom
ing ever held at Oregon.
On Friday night proceeding the big
game with Washington there will be a big
rally down town in the nature of a ‘night
clothes’ parade. Then back to the cam
pus where there will be plenty of enthus
iastic speeches on how Oregon won the
games in the old days, from coaches
Hayward and Huntington as well as from
prominent members of the alumni. There
will also be a complete schedule of stunts
to add to the life of the occasion.
Homecoming Dance Friday Eve.
Saturday, November 13, is the big day.
The football game with the University of
Washington is of course the big event. In
the forenoon will be the alumni reunion
which has for many years been one of
the features of Homecoming looked for
ward to by former students and friends
of the University. In the evening the
big poynecoming dance is scheduled.
The committees op Homecoming have
already begun work. The advertising
committee, headed by Jack Benefiel with
Abe Rosenberg and Ray Vestey as co
workers, have outlined several plans for
letting the people of the state hear about
Homecoming at Oregon.
Homecoming will be advertised in the
papers throughout the state, and posters
will be sent otit to the alumni to be
placed in show windows of the various
Houses Write Old Men.
The publicity committee, with «T. Jac
obson as chairman and Curly Lowrencc,
Eugene Kelty, Guy Sacre, and Arthur
Rudd os assistants, are plauing on a very
effective way of handling all news re
garding Homecoming. According to plans,
efforts will be made to reach every town
in Oregon through the alumni secretary,
Charlie Fenton, to ascertain just who
will be back for the week-end.
The advertising committee is also
working on a novel scheme of having
every house on the campus carry on a
campaign to get as many of the old grad
uates back as possible. The plans is for
every house to write as many of the
old men as possible and tell them about
Homecoming, making every effort to
persuade them to come back.
Further, the committee on stickers
urges every student to get the stickers
at the Co-op store at once and put them
on every letter.
WEDDINGS ARE MANY
More Names Added to List of Married
Students of University.
When the list of benedicts and brides
from among the Tanks of the students
and faculty of the University was print
ed in the Emerald a few issues ago, a
few names were omitted owing, no doubt,
to the fact that cupid was so busy dur
ing the summer that he was unable to
keep his records up to date and is only
now getting the last names in.
George Alder of Eugene, a pre-medics
student in the University and Miss Ellen
Wible of Areata, California were married
on Sunday, August 29. . Mrs. Alder, who
is a gradute of the Humbolt Normal
School, plans to take a course in pipe
•organ in the school of music next term.
