Selection Will Help Put ‘Pep'
in Gridiron Contest with
big event to come
Houston Urges Students to
Get Behind Those Having
Details in Charge
“You can’t beat Oregon fight,” is
the selection made by the slogan com
mittee to spur the Oregon team to vic
tory over the “Sundodgers” from the
north in the big Homecoming game on
Nov. 13. The slogan committee felt
that there was something in the old Ore
gon fight that someway or other always
put the team through to victory in
spite of overwhelming opposition, and
the verdict of the committee on slogans
for the Homecoming game was that noth
ing could beat Oregon fight.
All of the various committees are
working overtime on preparations for
the big event, and Johnny Houston,
chairman of the committees urges that
every student get behind the people who
are trying to make this the biggest and
best Homecoming ever held at Oregon,
“I don’t think, students are following
out instructions very well.” he said in
speaking of the letters to be written to
the alumni, former students and friends
of the University. “These letters must
be written as soon as possible and the
students should use more of the stick
ers at the Co-Op. The students sflould
use these stickers on every letter they
are sending out. no matter w'hether it is
to former Oregon men or women or
not; it will help out.”
Letters are going out daily from the
alumni secretary’s office to the many
Oregon men and women throughout the
northwest telling them of the plans being
made at the University for them when
they come back for the week-end.
It. is hoped thus year that the men’s
organization will co-operate with the
Women’s League in preparing the lunch
eon. It is thought by the committees in
charge that it is too much to expect from
the Women’s League that they should
prepare the luncheon for Homecoming
and Junior-Week-end.
Who Painted Sorority Walks? Question
Is Puzzliny Girls.
The Thetas have a mystery all their
own, at least it was a mystery until it
w.-is cleared up with turpentine by the i
Theta freshmen.
Last Sunday morning, when the girls
arose, they discovered the numerals
lb24 in wet, white pa'mf on the sidewalk
in front of the house.
l'or several days the girls have puzzled
over the question of who had defaced
the walks. Upon inquiry they found that
their house was the Only one visited by
the offenders.
Ball Hits Dorothy Manville On Thumb
Injuring Skin; Two Girls Give
First Aid.
The first casualty of the girl’s hockey
season occurred yesterday afternoon
when a misguided hockey ball hit Doro
thy Manville on the thumb, inflicting an
injury to the skin. While telling Miss
Waterman, the coach, of the accident.
Miss Manville fainted and fell flat on
her face in the mud. Two stalwart
hockey girls turned her over and began
to administer first aid. The excitement
attracted one of the workers on the Wo
men’s building who dashed to the scene
with a. pail of cold water, and. a la Bill
Hayward, Miss Manville was resuscinted.
She was carried to Hendricks hall where
Dr. Sawyer dressed her wound. The lat
est reports are that she is feeling fine
and is not much the worse for her ex
23 MEN Till OUT
Games to be Arranged With
0. A. C. and Portland
The 23 men interested in soccer who
i met in Johnson hall yesterday evening
were told by Dr. Bovard, Dean of the
school of physical education, that he
would do all in his power to obtain the
necessary equipment if they would get
out on the field daily and show that they
really had an interest in the game. Dean
Colin V. D.vment consented to coach the
team every evening when his time per
I*. Chappell Browne, president of the
Portland Soccer Association, has already
tried to arrange a game to be played
with the University squad on New Year’s
day. Mr. Browne suggested this date
because he thought that many of the
Oregon players resided in Portland. Com
menting on this game, Mr. Dyment said
that such a contest would mean that the
Oregon men would be playing the soc
cer champions of Portland, or an all-star
aggregation from the six teams which
comprise the Portland soccer league. A
game will also be played against the O.
A. C. team here during Homecoming. Mr.
Dyment said that if soccer was carried
on this year as it was last fall it would
mean a catastrophe when Oregon met the
trained'Scotchmen and Englishmen of
Portland. Mr. Dyment admonished the
prospective players that it was no use
trying to beat O. A. O. or Portland un
less the team trained strenuously five
times a week.
According to plans, the Kincaid field j
will be enlarged a little for the English
game, and sawdust will be spread over
the mud. Practice will begin as soon as
the field is fixed tip. probably Monday.
Dr. Bovard hopes t0‘ get enough foot
ball shoes and jerseys to enable the
players to practice until they demon
strate to the graduate manager that
they mean business. “If after two weeks
you show the proper spirit I am certain
that we can arrange things properly',”
said Dr. Bovard.
Henry Koeber. a player who held down
a line position on last year’s team, was
elected manager. A captain will be elect
ed later by the soccer squad.
Gjelsness Is Hiker, Grows Webs
on Feet to 'Cope with Oregon Rain
Introducing rudolph GJELS
NESS, of Grand Forks, North Da
kota, head of the order department of
the University library.
Even as the bear went over the moun
tain to see what he could see, so does
Rudolph Gjelsness desire to hike over
some of the hills around Eugene.
-Mr. Gjelsness developed the hiking
habit while he was stationed at Coblenz,
Germany as a librarian with the Ameri
can library association. Since coming to
Dregou he has noticed that the country
here offers remarkable possibilities for
ad kinds of hikes and trips. In this re
sl>eot, he says, the country is much like
that near the Rhine in Germany, with its
forests and wooded hills. He hasn’t
done Spencer yet but hopes to do so
soon, and is already making inquiries
ah.mt the trip to Baldy.
Library work has always been Mr.
Gjelsness’ specialty, and he lias attend
ed the graduate library school at the Uni
versity of Illinois, where in 1010 he re
ceived his degre of Bachelor of Library
In November, 1017, Rudolph Gjelsness
enlisted in the air service, and the fol
lowing .Tune was sent overseas. He
served in France and England. Soon
after the apmistiee was signed he was
sent to Beaune in France as assistant
librarian at the A. E. F. University. In
a few months he received his discharge,
and it was after thus that he took up the
library work at Coblenz.
Although Mh. Gjelsness doesn’t want
to appear trite in speaking of the rain
lit does want to assure the students that
it doesn’t bother him at all, because says
he, “After I was here a certain length
of time I got a pair of web fpet» an(l
now I don’t care how wet it is ”

Outdoor Classes Are Held Indoors;
Swimmers Alone Unaffected
By Rain.
i -
“Drat the rain” says Miss Thomson.
“Will it ever clear up!” sighs Miss
“Let ’er rain!” chuckles Miss Winslow.
Rain and unsettled weather has some
what interfered with the plans of the
instructors in the women’s physical edu
cation department. The classes in out
door sports are either decidedly pleased,
or are exceedingly disgusted, according
to their various tastes and desires.
Miss Thomson’s classes in archery
have had one actual practice since the
opening of school almost a month ago.
and# she finds that reading about how
Robin Hood won the meets in Merrie
England in the 12th century does not
make perfect scores in her cl$ss book.
Knowing the history of archery from the
time when David slew Goliath with his
sling shot does not give the would be
archer of her classes the necessary skill
to make good. Understanding the con
struction of the bows and arrows does
not insure proficiency in their manipula
tion, so Miss Thomson prays for good
weather when her archers can arch
without the dampening rain spoiling curls
and bow strings.
Miss Waterman’s classes know how it
is done, hut have failed to put it in
actual practice. The crowded library
or small sleeping porch is not the proper
environment for the study of how to
whack the tennis ball over the net in the
manner approved by champions. Her
classes learn about up-to-date tennis
tactics in the stuffy library and she too
says, “Thumbs down!”, to the weather
man. Her hockey classes also seem to
have a natural antipathy for having
their shins cracked with muddy hockey
sticks and being hit in the eye with any
thing but a perfectly clean hockey ball.
The rain somewhat dampens their ardor.

This is a fair sample of the char

Prof. A. H. Schroff Explains
Pine Exhibit of Paintings
Techon Art. Club entertained Wednes
day evening in honor of about fifty stu
dents and instructors in the department
of architecture, normal arts, and fine
arts, the occasion being the explanation
by Prof. A. H. Schroff, professor of fine
arts, of the pictures now on display in
the exhibition room of the architecutre
“The purpose of last night’s meeting”,
says Elizabeth Hadley, president of
“Techon,” was to give the students of art
a better insight into the technicalities
of art and a better appreciation of the
good in artistic productions of this kind.”
Professor Schroff pointed out the good
and the poor things about the pictures,
giving intimate glimpses into the lives
of the artists, and in some cases telling
what prompted the painting of the pic
“We hope,” added Miss Hadley, “to se
cure many good exhibits this year, and
think we shall be able to do so through
the club.”
This exhibit was secured through Allen
Eaton, field secretary of the American
Federation of Arts. Miss Hadley hopes
students will see this and other exhibits
as they are opened to the public. The
exhibit will be open the remainder of this
week and the first of next.
Techon Club extends a special invila
tion to townspeople to see the pictures
on Sunday afternoon from two to six.
Some one from the art departments will
be in the exhibition room to explain the
pictures and to take orders if any care
to buy prints. Students may call Sunday
if they wish, but the invitation is espe
cially to people of Eugene who can not
come at any other time.
Dean Eric W. Allen, of the depart
ment of journalism, who saw the exhibit
yesterday, says it is well worthwhile and
that all students should take the oppor
tunity to drop in and see the pictures.
The exhibit includes some well known
work b.v Maxfiehl Parrish, a few Ouerin
prints, and some exquisite color work.
Gem Staters Now in Better
Trim than During!
Fast Seasons
Coach Kelley, his staff and sixteen
members of the University of Idaho foot
ball squad will arrive in Eugene this
afternoon, probably on the 12:25 Oregon
Electric. A telegram from Moscow to
Manager McClain, announced that they
were leaving Idaho last night and it is
expected that Coach Kelley will lose no
time in reaching Eugene in order that he
may give his men a chance to work out
on the Oregon gridiron, this afternoon.
According to Manager McClain, final
arrangements have been completed for
the game tomorrow afternoon and the
contest will begin promptly at 2:30
o’clock. The field is in tip top shape
and with a little sunshine tomorrow noth
ing could be more ideal for the big game.
Oolan to Officiate.
“Sam” Dolan, of Corvallis, a former
player with the Notre Dame eleven, has
been engaged to refero the gome. Dolan
is already well known to fans through
out the Northwest and is noted for his
ability to handle the referee’s whistle in
a satisfactory manner. Dolan was a
member of the Notre Dame team for
four years, completing his work with
them in 1910. He played a line position
while on the eleven. Since his gradua
tion from college there is not a rule in
football which has been passed that he
is not thoroughly familiar with. Dolan
is one of the few men of the old days who
has kept up with the recent changes in
Skill Not Required.
In.speaking of the new rule which
was created by the last conference of the,
rules committee, allowing the attempt for
a goal after touchdown to be made from
directly in front of the goal posts as if
the ball had been carried over between
the posts, “Sam” Dolan says he is op
posed to this rule. “Many times,” he
stated, “a team uses all its skill in field
generalship and playing to carry the ball
over for a touchdown squarely between
the posts. This gives them a better
chance for the extra one point they are
allowed if they kick goal. By changing
the rule and doing away with kicking the
ball out from where it was carried over
the goal line, before an attempt at goal,
the rule allows the weaker team an equal
chance for the extra point.”
In the opinion of Dolan the two new
rules added to the rule books this year
are “rot” and were hatched up because
the rules committee couldn’t think of
anything else to do.
In Coach Kelley, who has been direct
ing the University of Idaho squad this
year, the Northerners have a former
teammate of Hugo Bezdek on the famous
University of Chicago eleven. The big
gest surprise in the Pacific Northwest
football circles last week was the low
score to which Tdaho managed to hold
the Cougars, and Oregon is on the look
out for any surprises that the Gem State
mentor may try to spring in the game
Hard Game Expected.
Kelley has a smooth working football
machine and in the opinion of witnesses
of the Washington State-Idaho game
last week Idaho is a better coached ag
gregation this year than for many sea
sons past. They are expected to put up
a hard game tomorrow and both Kelley
and Huntington are expected to use
about ull they have.
“Bill” Steers, captain of the lemon
yellow, who will play a halfback position
tomorrow, will do most of the punting
during his stay in the game; In the
opinion of Coach Huntington, “Bill” is
already liooting the ball in his last sea
son form although he is still far from
being in fit shape. “Spike” Leslie will

Exalted Citizenship of Former
Days Restored, He
Avers. *
“Oregon Spirit” Promises
Fulfillment of Vow to
State, Is View.
“The war came on—in that furnace
America was born anew!”
So said the Reverend Dr. W. S. Gil
bert, Astoria divine and newly elected
member of the board of regents of the
University of Oregon, in his address on
“An Exalted Citizenship,” at Villard hall
yesterday morning during the annual
pledge day services, in which Governor
Ben W. Olcott was also a participant. It
was that exalted brand of citizenship
that he pled for the assembled students
to forever hold on to and to keep alive
now that it had been yewon; for the sake
of the republic.
Before that calamity, according to the
doctor, thy rank and file of the people
of these United .States had seemed some
how to have lost that fine spirit of pure
patriotism that had been left them by
the experiences passed through during
the great Civil war. They had seemed
to have let their love of country slowly
fade away, he said, their sense of duty
to the republic lie dormant and their
public-spirit become stagnant. For this
he gave a number of reasons.
Immigration Blamed.
Chief among those reasons, according
to Dr. Gilbert, was the great mass of
foreign born Who failed to assimilate,
upon their arrival and subsequent stay
in the country, those ideals which the
true American will forever hold sacred
and which he will defend with his life
should the occasion ever arise. The flootl
of emmigrants which started from every
corner of Europe brought with it much
of its Old World prejudices, beliefs, and
ideas to dump into the melting pot of
America and to add to the natural list
lessness that marked the period of re
