•Johnny Houston who is the general
chairman will make his report. There is

alumni feel at home.
The viewpoint of the “old grad” will

Deltas and Betas
| Get Their Babes
In Shape for Tug !
With th(> coming of chilly weather
the Beta and Delta upperclassmen
have decided that the time is nigh
for the annual tug of war between
the freshmen of the two houses. Ac
cordingly next Saturday morning
has been selected as the date for
that historic and traditional affair.
Each team will consist of seven
or eight of the huskiest frosh of
which cither house can boast. As
neither the Betas nor tHe Belts have
more than that many freshmen,
sport writers predict that every
man will, make the first team.
The coaches of both teams report
that their charges are training re
ligiously on the proverbial diet of
(rubber porkchops and toothpicks.
The rubber chops are calculated to
develop a snappy team. The func

Excitement rivalling that created
by the discovery of a still or a fire
in a sorority house is expected to be
aroused by the event and the advice
of the managers is for spectators to
come early if they want to get race
side seats for the contest.
Coach fiartlott Not Enthus
iastic Over Prospects.
The freshman football squad is work
ing hard to get in shape for the game
with the O. A. C. rooks which is to be
played here Armistice day. The team
went through a hard fight against the
Chemawa Indians last Saturday, and
several of the men were hurt. They
will all be in shape for the game with
O. A. ('. a week from today.
Coach BartlKt. is not very enthus
iastic over the prospects for the game
with the O. A. C. babes next week. The
rooks were able to beat Chemawa while
the Oregon frosh lost 10 to !). Bartlett
says that the team will have to play hot
ter hall if they want to be on the long
end of the score on the eleventh.
Two of the first team backfield men.
“Chuck” Parsons and W. Johnson, were
injured, and Kellar King, a tackle had
two teeth knocked out last*week.
There will not be a cross-country meet
with the O. A. C. Books the day of the

Young Sculptor Smiles and Works;
Avard Fairbanks an Art Enthusiast
BANKS, professor of sculpture.
This quiet young man who looks at
you with a friendly smile and is reticent,
about himself, is nationally known. His
work lias been exhibited in the National
Academy of Design in New York and
most of the other leading art institutions
in this country, and in the Salon des
Artistes Franeaise, at Paris.
One of his best and most recent works
is a frieze for the Mclnery home in
Honolulu. It has three groups, typify
ing respectively, the sport, work and
workmanship, of the Huwaiians. lie is
now working on “The Idaho Doughboy ,
a war memorial for the state of Idaho.
There will be a copy of this figure in
every county of the state.
At I.1’, Mr. Fairbanks was given a
scholarship in the Art Students’ League
in New York. At 14 he exhibited in the
National Academy of Design in New
York, and was the youngest exhibitor
there. Three years later lie was accept
ed without examination to study in the
Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts, at
I*aris. He is a pupil of Fraser, the
sculptor of “The Knd of the I rail , one
of the masterpieces of the Panama-Pa
eifie Exposition in 191R, and of Ingalbert
of Paris.
Me. Fairbanks believes there is an
opportunity here to establish a school of
art that will be second to none in the
United States, and it is because he want
ed to help in this work that he came to
Oregon. lie also believes that the art
schools in this country are giving better
instruction than any of the foreign
schools. This means that there can be
established here one of the leading art
centers of the world.
It is a big. beautiful conception. And
as he talks with the quiet confidence
burn of knowledge and love of Ins work,
you feel that the dream will indeed be
come a reality.

Stanley Eisman Chosen Editor;
Harris Ellsworth to Be
Business Manager
First Issue Planned During
Holidays; Publication to
Be Quarterly
Plans for the establishment of n hu
morous publication at the University of
Oregon, thp first issue to be distributed
before the Christmas holidays, was defi
nitely decided upon at a meeting of stu
dents interested held in the journalism
annex yesterday afternoon. It was de
cided to continue the name of "Lemon
Punch,” used last term by that humor
ous publication. Stanley Eisman was
elected editor and Harris Ellsworth busi
ness manager.
It was decided to issue three publica
tions. the first to come out before the
Christmas holidays, the second in the
winter term and the third in the spring
term. This is the first time that defi
nite steps have been taken toward the
publication of a permanent humorous
magazine for the University.
The selection of the staff is to be on
a competitive basis. A box will be placed
in the journalism annex where all sug
gestions and jokes, features, or poems
may be dropped. A number of similar
publications from other colleges will also
be placed near the box so that students
may get a general idea of the type of
material used. There*is a special need
for go'rtd"ideas in cartoons and clever
writers of satire.
In order, that the publication may get
under way immediately and that mate
rial may be ready in time for an issue
before Christmas it will be necessary for
students interested to hand in material
and suggestions as soon as possible. An
other meeting will be held the latter
part of next week and partial appoint
ments of the staff made.
The University of Oregon is the only
large institution at this time that has
not. a permanent humorous publication.
Several attempts have been made in the
past, to establish humorous publications
at the University on a smaller scale but
were discontinued after several issues.
“The magazine will sell for about 25
cents per copy”. Ellsworth stated. “If
the students will get behind the maga
zine it can be made a success, otherwise
it cannot last. We will guarantee to do
our part.”
Students with experience along car
tooning lines as well as those who have
good ideas for the publication along edi
torial lines are asked to see Stan Eis
man or to drop suggestions in the box.
Another meeting will be announced the
latter part of next week.
Harold Say, Author of Article In Amer
ican Telling About Unusual Work.
Harold B. Say, a member of the class
of 1919, who is now Labor and Marine
editor of the Portland Telegram is the
author of an article in the November
American Magazine describing the un
usual work of a commercial sea-lion
hunter on the Oregon coast. It is in the
“interesting people” column.
Air. Say attended the University for
several years previous to 1017, and dur
ing tlie war served with the Both coast
artillery. He was later on the staff of
the Eugene Guard and has been on the
Telegram for about two years.
Sea-lions, according to the article, de
stroy approximately $2,225,000 worth of
salmon every year and Bill Hunter. “The
King of the Sea-lion hunters,” who is
the subject of the sketch has killed
about 10.000 of the animals in seven
years. A small gasoline launch is used
to make the landings on the rocks along
the coast which the sea-hons inhabit and
the hunters then shoot them with rifles.
The men are employed by canneries. A
description of one or two narrow escapes
shows the danger of the life, as well as
the thrills. Hunter never received less
than ten thousand dollars a year for his
work, if the weather is good.
Final Rooter Practice Dismal
Failure Says Head Yell King
Only 350 Turn Out on Kincaid Field for First
Pepfest Before Homecoming Game;
Stunts Promised Tomorrow.
“Thin is certainly a crime for the
last rooter's practice before Homecom
ing”, said Claire Keene;., noise czar,
after the yell practice on Kincaid field
There were only about three hundred
and fifty people there instead'of the
usual crowd of enthusiastic rooters that
come out to practice on Oski or to
“spell it”. Keeney went on to say that
for some reason the crowd decidedly
lacked Oregon pep and spirit that is
usually so evident at the last rallies and
rooters’ practices before the big Home
coming game.
There will be a Homecoming rally at
assembly today, and the stunt for the
Homecoming game will he practiced.
They were unable to work on it at the
rally as planned, because there were not
enough people out. The committee in
charge is verj anxious to have a good
~crowd out for assembly. and give a good

The band was out for the rooters prac
tice. and was very enthusiastically re
ceived. They played "Mighty Oregon”
for the last part of the practice.
Throughout the yell practice the soccer
i team worked out. on the field.
Claire Keeney is very anxious for
every Oregon man to have a rooter’s cap
before the Oregon-Washington game.
These caps may he bought for eighty
£i|ve cents. “At O. A. (’.. where there
are a half again as many men every man
had a rooter’s cap at the O. A. C.-Cali
fornia game, even if he did not have the
pep”, said Keeney in urging the men to
buy their caps as soon as possible.
George Pasto Gets Ideas Prom!
Football Clash with O.A.C.
The new football song entitled ‘Boys.
Hold That Bine.” will make its first ap
pearance before the student b o d y
at assembly today. The words and
music to this song were composed by
George Pasto, ’22, from ideas which came *
to him at the (). A. game last fall,
and during Ids spare moments last
spring and summer Pasto worked out
the words and music.
The music has been arranged by John
Stark Evans and Vincient Engeldinger,
and a special band arrangement has been
prepared by Victor Husband. It is ,
planned to sing this song at Homecom
ing. Every student is urged to learn
the words, which are as follows:
Boys, Hold That Line
Look, boys, look,
They’ve got the bail.
Gained some yards,
That must be all.
Bight in your lia/nrs
Lies Oregon's fate—•
Make haste, make haste.
Before we’re late.
Boys, hold that litir.
That’s right, hold tight,
Hold with all your might. _ .
We’ll carry on.
With a fight, fight, fight. .
That’ll turn them white.
Boys, hold that line,
It’s your Alma Mater calling:
Fight on, we cannot lose-—
Yes, we will win this game.
Marian and Marion Are Constant Rivals
During Campus Stage
A curious combination of circumstan
ces has cast Marion Gilstrnp and Marian
Taylor as rivals in the comedy, “The
Oassilis Engagement”, being given to
night at Guild hall, for since their ap
pearance in dramatic circles they have
always played in parts which held re
spectively a jealousy for the other
whenever they appeared in the saint'
production, with but one exception. In -
“Little Dog Laughed” they took the part i
of lovers. Miss Taylor taking a boy's
The two Mar.. or rather Marin*)
and Marian, have been playing together
since high school days, and even if fate
has cast them as eternal enemies, they
are sorority sisters and both maintain
that they love each other dearly.

Program Arranged to Include
Classic! and Popular

Thirty-Five Pieces
That the dance at the Armory on Arm
istice eve, November 10. at which this
A. S. TT. O. presents the University or
chestra is to be one of the most suc
cessful affairs given this year is as
sured by the fact that a thirty-five piece
orchestra, will play not only in the eon
cert immediately preceding the dance hut
also at the dance itself.
The concert, beginning promptly at 8
r. M. and ending n't. 9, will be the fin
ished product of careful training and
the result, in the case of the opening
overture and the closing Egyptian
Suite, of a year’s practice. A number
of particular interest will be the violin
solo, “Souvenir”, by Alberta Potter, ac
companied by the girls’ string quartet
composed of five pieces, v, hich has been
arranged by Rex Underwood. Frank *
•Tue, who will sing today in assembly,
will do solo work. His tenor voice is
remarkably sweet and well controlled.
Many ftahearsals Held.
Tr.e orchestra his been rehearsing
twice a week for tV-.' past T.onth in pre
paration for the ere ert and Mr. Urder
wood said that the classical music of
fered will be most interesting as a ball
on <•<>. for- the popular music furnished
later for the dance.
The opportunity to dance to the music
of an orchestra of thi.s kind is seldom
afforded owing to the fact that most of
the dance music is made by small com
binations. The orchestra will play the
Straus waltzes and some of the latest
foxtrots to give the audience some real
dance music, while a real jazz, orchestra
will do its duty between numbers played
by the whole orchestra.
New Instruments Needed.
The student body is giving this dance,
assisted by the orchestra, to raise neces
sary funds to supply much needed instru
ments such as bassons, violas, horns,
oboes, and the like.
The extra pieces will then make it
possible for students to learn to play
without purchasing the expensive instru
ments, and the result will lie a real sym
phony orchestra in the University in a
short while.
Although the personnel of the organ
ization is much the same as last year, the
deciced addition of membership has made
the task of perfecting the concert re
pertoire as great as it would have been
with an entirely new organization.
'Mr. Underwood hopes to raise $1000
during the year by giving concerts.
The charge for the concert and dance
will lie seventy-five cents, for the con
cert alone, fifty cents. The ticket sale
will be conducted by members of the or
chestra, the glee clubs, nud the Co-op.

all of December. This trip, Dean Lands
