One of Hardest Battles
Tonight overy man and woman of

the Oregon varsity a fitting send-off
for its game with Stanford, to be
played Saturday at Palo Alto. The
parade forms at the library at 9:15

be given. The Oregon varsity will
retire to their sleeper at 10, but
Yell Leader Keeney expects to in
duce the coaching staff and the
players to make a few remarks to
the “Thundering Thousand’’ before
the varsity curfew sounds. “I want
every member of the Thundering
Thousand there,” says the varsity
yell king, “which means every man
and woman in the University. Wc
must let the varsity know that we
are backing them every minute they
are at Palo Alto.”
With nix out of the eleven first string

which have kept them out of practice

"Frankie” Hill has an injured leg and
wrist. In addition to these injuries are
those of the linemen, Howard has an
injured shoulder, Mautss is suffering from
a badly bruised back, while Shields has
a “charley horse” which bids fair to
keep him out of the game.

DRESS SUITED TYROS
TO SPEAK ON CAMPUS
Journalism Fraternity Will Initiate Fivo
New Pledges on Library Steps
No, the five men whom you will see
trotting around the campus Thursday
morning elad formally in dress suits will
not be typical- college sports, who have
been to an all-night formal and didn’t
have time to change their clothes before
they came to classes!
And when they begin to elocutc from
the library steps, don’t get the idea that
some kind of a political meeting is being
started. They will be neither gay wild
sports nor scheming politicians. They
will be the initiates of Sigma Delta Chi,
honorary journalistic fraternity. •
In accordance with the time honor
ed custom of Sigma Delta Chi, the five
men recently elected will not only have
to attend classes all day Thursday in
| dress suits but will also have to make
j speeches from the library steps and put
out the Friday morning edition of the
Emerald entirely by themselves.
The men who-will be seen playing the
parts of blase society fiends are Ray
mond Vaster, Harry Ellis, John Dier
dorff and Carlton Logan.

INTRODUCING KIMBALL YOUNG.
• He is at once tbe inspiration and de
*t>u*t of the seniors. He has set a goal
Ihey despair of attaining, and yet his ex
ample encourages them in their “watcli
lut waiting” policy. Professor Young
exhibits a mustache which, while of no
great size, is of the most fashionable cut
and coloring. Light salmon-blonde it is.
Kimball Young expressly states that he
is no relation to Clara Kimball Y'oung.
the movie star, and at present harbors
no aspiration to twinkle in that profes
*iou\ _ _ '■
His aspiration, in fact, is quite fue re
moved. He is teaching “that study whose
• ask it is to point out and organize tbe
observable facts of conscious life, and to
lormnlate the theories, or hypotheses,
necessary to explain these facts.”
There! Do you know what that is?
About. 75 per cent of his class didn’t in
• he last quizz. It is the text-book defini
tion of psychology, so perhaps you had
better cut this out and put it in your
notebook, along with those cute little
diagrams Professor Young draws on the
board for his classes.
Mr. Young “got Ids start” at the Uni
versity of Utah, took his M. A. at the
University of Chicago, taught at the
Weber Normal School in Ogden, and went
to Stanford to do his Ph. D. work. He
has it all done but his thesis, and he is
working on that now. It's awfully high- j
brow—all about racial psychology and
the study of foreign groups in the public J
Mr*. Young said he was beginning to
think that a sunny day in Oregon was like
a “happy island surrounded by rain,” but
we immediately assured him that this
weather is most unusual and it hasn’t
rained so much for forty years.” Then
he hastened to add that he was delighted
to be here, that the weather was splendid
for study and that the reception given
him by the faculty and students made
him feel at home. You see. he has caught
the “Oregon Spirit" and is already one
of us. M. L. B.

sities and colleges was considered.
The University whs the only school of
higher education to be represented, and
the delegates made the best of the op
portunity to instil enthusiasm for Oregon
in the 12.” boys that were there.
Those representing the University
were: llal Donnelly, Roy Veatch, Robert
McConnell, Don Zimmerman, Howard
Bailey and Charles Spere.
DEMOCRATS ARE FEW.
The meeting of the Cox-Roosevelt
dub which was scheduled for 7 I*. M.

was said, would be announced later.

Last Minute Political Rallies Held Last Night
Expected to Instill Enthusiasm and
Pep Into Balloting at Campus
Polling Place Today
The big presidential straw vote is on!
From S o’clock this morning until 3 this afternoon, every student of the Uni
versity and every member of its faculty is expected to cast a ballot for a presi
dential candidate and to indicate his stand on the league of nations covenant. Bal
lots were printed yesterday afternoon, and will be passed out to voters all day
today by members of the Emerald staff detailed to oversee the balloting. A sepa
rate box will be stationed in front of the library for faculty votes.
Political clubs have been priming their members for the past week for the
straw vote, and it is expected that the ballot boxes will be busy from early morn
ing until closing time. From previous votes held at the University, it is probable
that the results may prove to be a safe prediction of what will happen in the
state of Oregon on November 2.
Final rallies of campus political clubs were scheduled for last night. Due to
a mix-up, the Democratic meeting failed to materialize, although several him

Dr. Bagley, Teachers’ College,
Is Able Speaker.
The Thursday assembly will be ad
dressed by Ur. W. C. Barley, of the fae
ult.v of Columbia Teachers’ College.
I)r. Bagley is the author of several of
the most popular books oil education,
says Dr. Sheldon, among which are “Hu
man Behavior,” and “Craftmanship in
Education.” He studied under Titchener
at Cornell, where he earned his i'll. I).

Montana. In 11110, he left this position
to become dean of the school of educa
tion at the University of Illinois, where
he remained until 1018, when he joined
the Columbia Teachers’ College faculty.
Dr. Bagley is making an extended trip
through the Northwest, speaking at most
of tin* universities and colleges. His
topics have not been announced, hut he
will probably speak on a phase of his
work, says Dr. Sheldon.
Phi Kappa Delta and the Women’s
Educational Club will entertain Dr. Bag
ley at dinner at the Hotel Osbnrn on
Wednesday evening. ,
(1ml enthusiastic members of the Cox
Uoosevelt club responded to the call for
a Democratic rally last night. The Re
publican rally resulted in a large turn
out of Harding supporters the same
“The league of nations, (lie inefficien
cy of the present administration, and the
protective tariff are the three big reasons
why the Democratic candidates should
not be elected,’ ’stated ex-Seuatpr ,1. .1.

in the V. M. C. A. hut.
He is making a tour of the Northwest
in the interest of the Republican candi
dates and was secured for last night’s
meeting by the campus Harding club.
The speaker scored the Versailles
covenant because he said it surrendered
the freedom of the seas, freedom of dip
lomatic intercourse, and further declared
that “if the United States senate never
did anything good in its existence, it did
a service to humanity when it refused to
ratify the league of nations’covenant as
Mr. (Vosscly, who was a member of
the Rainbow division during the war in
France, emphatically stated that he fa
vored any form of a league in which we
would not lose our sovereignty, but that
he was unalterably opposed to the cove
nant as it now stands.
Citing the situation in Poland, he de
clared that if the senate had ratified the
league when President AVilson asked, our
soldiers would now be fighting in Europe.
If Harding and Coolidgc are elected
and have the backing of a Republican
congress the Panama canal tolls will be
repealed, water transportation rates
from the Pacific Northwest will be re
duced and the critical condition of our
lumber and wool industries will be rem
edied, said Mr. Crossely.
He also emphasized the importance of
the election of Robert N. Stanfield to the
senate from Oregon.
A (puirtet composed of Laura Rand,
Marvel Skeels, Arthur Johnson, and Har
ris Ellsworth led the meeting in the sing
iug of patriotic songs.

More money is being spent this year in
putting up new buildings and installing
modern equipment than has been spent
since the University was first founded.
The immense step toward a permanent
building program is the result of the mill

new buildings are under construction,
