“Lay off the dress suits,” says Charles
Huggins, chairman of the underclass mix
that will be held at 12:‘>0 o’clock today
noon on historic Kincaid field. “The bird
that steps on the battle-ground today
with a white collar on, a “shine” on his
shoes, or a crease in the legs of his
trousers, is going to be sadly out of luck.
It makes no difference whether or not
his hair is parted in the middle, a la
lounge lizard—‘-that will all be changed
wdien action starts—but things are gonna
happen to any who come prepared for
a dance or an afternoon reception.’’
Huggins ,and the rest of the commit
tee, promise that today's will prove one
of the liyest mixes ever held on, the
campus. It will also be the squarest one
ever “pulled.” they say, and in their pro
gram have secured choice quotations
from prominent faculty members to up
hold their point.

Stands Not To Be Decorated.
The usual custom of decorating the
stands was given up by the committee, it
is announced, on account of the expense.
Homecoming week, they say, will demand
all the funds that might have been spent
on the mix.
The sombreroed seniors, as tradition
demands, will hold positions as official
“cops.” The captain of that gallant
crew will be appointed by the class pres

U. of W. Outlook Blue.
Varsity outlook is discouraging, states
Poaeh Allison of Washington, after the
scrimmages of last week-end.
Varsity Eleven to Get Initial
Tryout of the Season Against
Multnomah This Afternoon
Chances of Victory Slim, Says Coach “Shy”
Huntington; Bill Reinhart to Pilot
Squad; Lineup Announced.
Oregon's chances of winning this af
ternoon’s gridiron struggle against Mult
nomah are very slim, in the opinion of
the coaching staff of the lemon-yellow
eleven. Coaches “Shy” Huntington and
“Bart” Spellman are not contemplating
Ion winning the game with the clubmen,
according to the information they gave
out at training quarters last night.
“We are using this game in an effoVt
to find out more about what each indi
vidual player can do when put to a real
test, rather than to see what the team
collectively may he able to do,” Coach
Huntington said last night. "The team
is not in shape to go up against a hard
game such as this will he foir they have
not been completely 'organized as yet.”
The selection of a team has been a
problem which is even yet not solved by
the coaching staff this season, and the
material of the sort that there has been
very little difference shown in the play
ing ability of the men who are competing
for positions. There are a variety of
combinations which the coaching staff
have up their sleeve and which will be
tried out in the Saturday’s game but as
to just which of these is going to prove
the strongest against the winged “M”
eleven will be better determined after
the game starts this afternoon.
Positions Still Uncertain.
The battle for positions has been go
ing on steadily for the past three weeks
and yet there seems to be little ctfirage
in the status of the players when it
comes to landing a berth on the first
squad regularly. This is especially true
of tre •1'nemen, some aspirants for a
line position have been working at end,
guard and tackle and are showing inp
equally well in any of the positions until
it has almost become a matter of a toss
up to see who will land the place. Among
the men who have been playing the vari
ous positions, are “Rud” Brown, Carl
Vondeir Ahe and “Hugh’’ Clerin.
Other linenien have been worked al
ternately at guard and at tackle in an ef
fort to get ^hem in the best position.
These are Shields, Strachan. Ward and
Starr. For the backfield the combina
tion which has been working more stead
ily than any other is made up of “Bill”
Rinehart at quarter, “.Take” Jacobberger
and “Frankie” Hill at halves and George
King at full. On the second string and
alternating with the first string men on
the job are Mead and Hoisington at half
and "Busher” Blake at full, while (Lath
am, Durno and Boyer have also been
making good in the backfield.
Everett Br.nndenberg will be unable to
get into the game today on account of his
ankle not being sufficiently well to al
low his using it. Mautz, the husky line
man will also only be good for a .short
heat today as he has only been out with
the squad for about a week.
The game with Multnomah was ar
ranged on short notice and has not al
lowed for secret signal practice and fin
fact the various combinations which
Coach Huntington will use have been
switched about so much that they are
hardly familiar with the plays and sig
nals which they will use. In the words
of Coach Huntington, “the game will be
a game for the men to make good and
1 expect to get a line on just What each
man has in him.”
Men To Be Watched.
Head Coach “Shy” Huntington an
nounces that the line-up at the start of
today’s game will be as follows:
“Brick” Leslie, center; ,“S” Starr,
right guard. “Ed’’ Ward, left guard,
“Scotty” Strachan, right tackle, “Spike”
Leslie, left tackle; “Hugh” Clerin, right
Howard, left end. In
the backfiefd Coach Huntington will
start “Bill” Rinehart- at quarter;
“Frankie” Hill and “Jake” .Tacobberger
at halves and George King at full.
This will by no means be the line-up
which will play the entire game today os
the coaches will give every man who has
been showing up well in practice a try
in his position. “Bart” Laughlin and
“Ducky” Holmes will each get a whirl
at center; “Fat’’ Mautz, Vonder Ahe.
“Rud” Brown and “Tiny” Shields will
work at guard; Brown, Vonder Ahe and
Shields will also be sent in at tackle
during the game and Brown, Vonder
Ahe and Morfltt will be given a: chance
to work at end. In the backfiekl. “Busti
er” Blake will be sent in at full during

New Staff Will Direct Yells
At Today’s Game.
Leslie Nunn and Dean Ireland are the
two men chosen to assist Claire Keeney
in leading the yells on the campus for
the coming year. The appointments have
been made by Keeney and consented to
;by the student council. Both Nunn and
Ireland are members of the class of
2H, and both have been prominent in
gchool activities since entering the Uni
The new assistants will make their
first appearance at the Multnomah club
-Oregon game this afternoon, as will al
so the University band, and it is hoped
by Yell King Keeney that the first game
of the year will develop a sufficient
amount of pep among the college men to
start the season off with a bang.
According to Keeney, it is the object of
each cheer leader to adopt the same
method of leading the yells as the oth
ers. in order that there should be no dif
ficulty in keeping the rooters in unision.
At present it is planned to hold yell
practice at least once a week on Kin
caid field. Keeney urges that all men
come out to these practices and show,
their interest in the team as well to
learn new yells and practice old ones.
As guests of Ollie Stollenberg. senior
member of the student council, the mem
bers of that body were entertained at
dinner last evening at Hendricks hall. 1
Oregon Represented at First
Scientific Conference
“I may not be fortunate enough to at
tend such a meeting again jn my life
time,” says Dr. Warren D. Smith, head
of the department of geology, in a let
ter to Dr. E. L. Packard concerning the
First Scientific Conference under the
auspices of the Pan Pacific Union. Dr.
Smith was the representative of the Uni
versity of Oregon at this important con
ference which was held at Honolulu,

work of various bureaus and organiza
tions for scientific study and research in

is attached since he resigned his posi
tion with the University of Oregon.
The program of the conference in
volved various trips planned for differ
ent groups of scientists, some of espe
cial interest to botanists, some particu
larly for geologists and so forth. Dr.
Smith writes that he visited the volcanic
laboratory of Kilauea while there.
The conference is one of the outstand-#
ing conferences of the year, and was at
tended by delegates from all parts of j
the world. Many universities of the
United States were represented, as well
as many scientific bureaus of research.
Dr. Smith stopped at the conference on
his way to the Philippines where he is to
spend a year, being on leave of absence
from the University.

alumni secretary, who lias received many
letters from old Oregon people since last
Homecoming week-end, the “Winnagen”

a very successful means of bringing back
the Oregonians, it was announced by the
editor, so work has commenced already.

M. H. Douglass Suggests More
Study in Afternoon.
Arrangements have been made for
three extra stiudy rooms to supplement
the library reading rooms. These are
to be open Monday, Tuesday, Wednes
day and Thursday evenings. Economic
history students will find their 'reserve
books in room .10 of the library building
from (1:30 to 10 on those evenings, alfd
Room 1 will be open from 7 to 10 p. m.
for those who are not using library
books, and students who cannot find
chairs in the main reading room. Room
1 of Johnson ball also is open from (1:30
to 10 for students of mathematics.
Mrs. M. F. 'McClain, reference librar
ian, states that at present there are about
three times as many students on the
campus as the library can well accom
modate. It has been overcrowded for
some time but it is busier than ever this
yean*, she says. The evening hours are
worse, for then long lines are formed at
the circulation desk, which makes it
something of a task to obtain reserve
According to M. IT. Douglass, librar
ian, there is no remedy for present con
ditions save the supplementary reading
rooms until a new library can be erect
ed or more rooms secured in other build
ings. “As long as there are students us
ing reserve and reference books, read
ing magazines and studying their own
books, all in one reading room, there
will be congestion,” said Mr. Douglass.
He suggests that students use the re
serve rooms freely and if possible study
in the afternoon and in this way help to
improve matters.

64 Women Enroll For
Work Thus Far.
! Graduates In Last Year's
Classes All Reported In
Good Positions.
Miss Mabel L| Cummings, head of the
department of hygiene and physical edu

over the fact that sixty-four girls have
thus far registered as majors in the de
partment. This exceeds by about 30 per
cent the number registered in the past
Miss Cummings stated that during the
spring and summer she had calls for
many more girls to fill positions os in
structors or directors of physical educa
tion and that, she was able to provide.
With increased enrollment she can not
only fill more positions, but can choose
from a greater number the girls best
suited to each particular type of work.
