declared ‘Hal,” as almost everybody
nails him. So he packed up his old kit
hag way back in Princeton. New Jersey,
where he’d been getting his master's de
gree in philisophy (think of anyone be
ing able to refer to an M. A. from Prince
ton as casually as that) and brought j
along his mother and his younger broth

"Say he’s got a mean temper,” said
one of the boys standing near. "We’vei
ttever seen any evidence of it, but he’s
so awfully good-natured that we think
he’s only human and must have* a tem
per. Oli. yes, and you’d better add that
he’s a slicker at basketball.”
Now abotit 'that temper, if you’ve seen
him you won’t believe it—he smiles all
the time, apparently. And besides, he
says he likes everything. He travels
around the state visiting colleges in Ore
gon most of the time and used to go to
Idaho. That was too much for him so
he had to give it up.
“There is not a better bunch of fel
lows in the northwest or in any other
college that I know than here at Ore

and he says it as if he means it.

WEAK BEFORE ATTACK
Enormous Crowd Treated to
Spectacular Game; ”0”
For the third consecutive year Ore
gon triumphed over Washington. Satur
day. The score, 17 to 0. tells the story.
It was a splendid Homecoming victory,
before an enormous crowd at Hayward
field, and the old grads assembled as
guests of their alma mater were treated
to one of the most spectacular games
ever seen at Oregon.
The official score showts that Bill
Steers, mighty captain of the Oregon
pleven, did all the scoring for Oregon.
It was a great day for Bill, who never
Appeared to better advantage. It was
pi different team from the one that fell
before Stanford ,on its last appearance.
Perfect interference, crushed the Wash

fense was helpless, throughout the game.
Steers, at quarter, won the game
for the lemon-yellow, when early in the
second period he caught a Washington
punt on his, own 25-yard line and, sup
ported by faultless interference, ran 75
yards to a touchdown. In the third
quarter he added three points with a
perfect field goal from a difficult angle,
though the. ra«ge..was short. Early in
the fourth quarter be completed Ore
gon’s sevetteen points by skirting Wash
ington’s right end for four yards aud a
touchdown from a fake line buck forma
The visitors were unable to tathom

Sun Dodgers were able to make yardage
through the Oregon eleven.
“Mart” Howard was a big factor in
the Oregon defense formation, and in
addition to his hard and sure tackling
of the Washington hacks and spoiling
of their interference, downed the Wash
ington safety in his tracks on practical
ly every punt. * Howard downed the ball
three times when Washington hacks

Impromptu Rally Held to
Celebrate Gridiron Victory
Students Serpentine During One O’Clock
Hour; No Action Taken Yet By Faculty
Oregon's victory over the University
of Washington eleven last Saturday Was
celebrated by an impromptu rally on the
campus yesterday afternoon. Shortly
before 1 o’clock classes took up a ser
pentine, formed in front of the library,
trailed over the campus, gathering root
ers as it went, and ended, in front of
Several talks were given by student
officials and the varsity coaching staff.
Part, of the students left to attend 2
o’clock classes, the remainder going
down town to the Armory, where an
impromptu dance was h*ld until 4:fl0
Impromptu rallies, which interfere
with class work come under the general
ban of the faculty disciplinary commit
tee, but no action has been taken as yet
regarding yesterday’s celebration. At a
meeting held last Saturday it was voted
to hold classes the Saturday preceding
Christmas vacation in order to make up
for time lost in any rally which should
interupt the school work after the Wash
ington game. Whether or not yester
day’s affair comes under this head has
not boon decide^ by any official “body.
Karl Onthank, seerotory to thp presi
dent, said yostorday evening that stu
dents who did not attend classes would
(veceive cuts, which, he added, would
•prove disastrous in cases where pupils
are,oh the verge of probation.

ASKED TO ORGANIZE
Thirty-five Former Cabinet
About thirty-five former cabinet mem
bers were guests of the local Y. W. C.
A. at a breakfast given at the Anchor
age Saturday morning. Florence Fu
ruset acted as toastmistress.
Dean Fox welcomed the girls back to
the campus. Mary Chambers was the
next speaker, representing the cabinet
of 1917. She spoke especially of Miss
Watsons’ discussion groups which met
at 7:00 o’clock in the morning. This
group was organized by this cabinet aud
according to Miss Chambers is the thinp
which stands out as worth while in her
Ruth Ann Wilson, president of the
cabinet in ’18, declared that she thought
in the friendships made through the as
sociation the cabinet groups were the
ones which lasted even after one was out
of school. She urged the girls to fake
advantage of this opportunity.
(Helen Hall, ’19, told the girls where
a great many of the members of her
cabinet were and what they were doing
Marjorie Holaday spoke of the growth
of the association in the last few years.
According to Miss Holaday the budget
has jumped from $16,000 to $28,000 in
the last two years. Also the cabinet
has five new members who head newly
She told of the girls who were doing
Y. W. work in different parts of the
country. Essie Maquire is in Fort
Worth. Texas; Helen Wells doing girls
work in Casper, Wyoming; Harriet Gar
rett in Muscatine, Iowa, in city work;
Mabye Weller in Boise, Idaho; and
Eleanor Spall who was in a recreation
camp in Spokane.
It was then decided to have an alumni
representative on the cabinet. Ruth
Westfall was appointed to this position.
•Sunday afternoon Ike alumni mot agaiD
fo see what they could do to help the
association. A permanent committee
'was created consisting of Ruth West
fall, Francis Shoemaker C.rijgg, Lillian
Miller, Mary Chambers and Mildred
These girls are going to get a record
of all the old members and what they
are doing. Then they are going to or
ganize all the Y. W. alumni 'in Portland
so that they can stand back of the asso
ciation and help them more. One of the
things they expect to do is to keep in
touch w’ith new students.
After voting to have this breakfast
an annual event the girls left singing
“Oregon our Alma Mater.”
DEM LIKES JTTITIIOE
Miss Fox Believes Dancing*
Should Be Improved
Dean Fox is very favorably impressed
with the attitude of the social committee
this year towards the matter of student
dancing. The committee feels that the
University of Oregon is at the turning
point of its history, and whereas before
the student body dances have been the
main form of amusement the committee
recognizes other interests coming in, and
(that Oregon spirit is broadening in Its
'generous support of all the best inter
ests of the community.
“I have observed in regard to the
dancing at the student dances,” said
(Dean Fox, “a variety of form. Some stu
dents endeavor to introduce what they
call the latest and newest steps, which
in reality would be condemned by any
reputable academy of dancing. There are
other forms which arc merely awkward
and are the result of lack of training
and quickness to observe and distinguish
between graceful and ungraceful, not to
say disgraceful dancing.”
“The West Point military academy
have some dancing _rules which might
well be adopted as campus slogans,” she
continued. “They are ‘dignified carriage
and demeanor,” and ‘Cheek dancing, ex
travagant posture, and rnotiops of any
kind are prohibited.” ,?
Ill regard to the attitude of the stu
dents toward patrons and0 patronesses*
Dean Fox wishes especially that the stu
dents be more courteous and show their
appreciation for the chaperones. “Tt is
my opinion,” said Dean Fox, “that they
should not expect to lie shadowed and
booked for every moment of the evening,
but I feel that they have a right to ex
pect courteous treatment. One woman
should never be left sitting alone in a
corner, even at the most informal of af
ternoon matinee dances, and anyone see
ing her in such a place should come at
f>nce to talk with her. No women should
be allowed to cross the ball room un
escorted. More spontaneous courtesy on
the part of the students in greeting the
'patrons and patronesses, is wanted In
stead of artificial politeness.”
Y. W.-Y. M. TO GIVE PARTY.
The Y. W. and the y. M. are planning
■for u big Thanksgiving party to be given
