subjects at the U. of O. He says the
first thing he noticed on the campus was
the democratic spirit, and since he found

hello instead of the regulation “good

for Friday Night;
“It's mu- last chance tonight!
“By Friday afternoon it will all he
history, and the story of our success or
failure will be indelibly engraved in the
annals of the University.
“And what's more, it depends on you!”
This is the way Claire Keeney, Yell King,
characterizes the crisis that exists in the
support of the varsity which meets the
University of Idaho Saturday in the,first
conference game of the season.
And the last chance to which Keeney
refers is the yell practice tonight on
Kincaid field at 4:15 o’clock. This
year’s yelling, says Keeney, has been
ragged in the extreme, and unless it is
improved there will not; be enough Ore
gon Spirit Friday night to even spur
the varsity on to a decent showing in
New Yells Ready.
A number of new yells are ready to
be man-handled and Keeney promises
that the band will be on the job to aid
both tonight’s and Friday’s preform
ance. It will be the last yell practice be
fore the game and the only chance the
varsity yell sjfaff will have to get pep

A scrimmage featuring the freshman
team will be staged for the benefit and
inspiration of the rooters this afternoon.
The jazz rally is to be held just before
the student carnival Friday evening. At
7 o’clock the parade starts from the
library, with a time honored)serpentine
that will go careening down town, lei
off excess steam in the form of yells
and songs, and then come back to the
campus for the carnival.
Old clothes, flannel shirts and “hay
wire” attire are to grace the parade as
well as the line of march. Keeney warns
the tyros to leave their silk shirts and
broadcloth pants at home. But at the
same time lie warns them to stick their
dancing pumps in their hip pockets ioi
future use, because there will, in all
probaility, as he puts it, be dancing at
the close of the carnival.
The pajama feature of the parade lias
been abandoned this time, and will be
staged in the rally that is to proceed the

Smiths and Johnsons Lead In
Race for Popularity.
Compilers of grade sheets and roll
call reports have met their Waterloo iu
the duplication and similarity of names
which exists at the University. Accord
ing to Mrs. George Fiteli, of the regis
tration office staff, Smiths lead off
with 1N. Johnsons are a dose second
with II. There are 'll Moores and 19
Millers to worry the professors, and
Wilsons and Hills are running a close
race with eight each.
To add to the joy which this causes is
the exact duplication and similarity of
names. For instance there are two Hath
A. Tucks;'an Arthur W. Johnson and an
Arthur II. Johnson; a Harold V. Simpson
and Harold E. Simpson; two Dorothy
Dixons and a Dorothy Dickey to make
life more pleasant for the hard-working

IDAHO GIVES PROMISE
OF HARD-FOUGHT GAME
Gem Staters Best In Years;
Contest WiU Shed Light
on W.S.C. Struggle.
Football dope is beginning to experi
ence its annual upsetting period, and as
usual at this time of the season, the
predictions as to who will cop the coast
honors from their showing so far is be
ing made. The return of big “Bill”.
Steers to the Oregon varsity appears to
have put Oregon back on an equal foot
ing again in the minds of a number of
coast sport writers, although the uni
versal opinion among the writers is that
the California “boars” are leading the
procession from their record so far.
California beat St. Mary’s College by
a score of 127 to 0, defeated the Nary
team by a score of 88 to 0 and handed
out. a 7!) to 7 defeat to Nevada last Sat
urday. But, it can be remembered that
the University of Washington eleven de
feated Whitman by a score of 125 to 0
last season and yet lost to Oregon. What
California lias done in the south can
hardly be taken as a eriterian of what
she can do against the northern teams.
Montana Beats U. of W.
The University of Washington team
lost their first big game to Moiyfana last
Saturday by a seorevof 18. to J4. Mon
tana has a strong team this year, but
Washington has so far failed to play up
to last year’s form. Whitman scored
two touchdowns against the Washington
team the week before and Washington
only defeated them by the score of 33 to
14. It is evident that either Washing
ton does not have a great deal on the ball
this year, or else Coach “Stub”. Allison
Is holding his team back. However, it is
an unusual thing for a coach to hold his
team back so far that they will lose the
game, and in the opinion of a number of
eye witnesses of the Saturday’s game.
Washington is not showing up to her old
"Heck” Dorman, coach of the Mult
nomah club football eleven, who played a
scoreless game against the Aggies at Cor
vallis last Saturday, states that the Uni
versity of Oregon football machine is
just about twice as strong as Coach
Ttuthcrford’s squad this season. Mult,
loinali went into the game against the
Aggies with a team considerably lighter
and weaker than the one sent against
he < b egun eleven the week before. O.
A. C. failed to score on the clubmen and
made yardage but once during the game.
Since “Heck” Dorman saw the Oregon
machine in action, Captain “Bill”
Steers has joined the squad.
Idaho Has Strong Eleven.
Washington State is playing up to
about her old standards according to in
formation from Pullman way. The Cou
gars defeated Idaho by a score of 14 to
7 at Moscow, Friday afternoon. Because
this was a hard fought game is not at
tributed to any weakness on the part of
the Cougars but is blamed to the un
usual strength of the Idaho eleven, this
season. In the opinion of a number of
witnesses of the Idaho game Friday, the
(lent state aggregation is a better coach
ed and smoother machine this year than
they have been for several seasons paBt.
The game this week between the Idaho
eleven and the University of Oregon
team will be the authority for the dope
on Washington State and Oregon. The
Washington-O. A. C. game will also be
the elimination game for one of these con
tenders in coast, honors.
