    Oregon Daily Emerald
Both Classes on Edge for
Struggle This Afterndon .
on Kincaid Field
Squareness of Affair Much
Press-Agented; Program
of Events Prepared
Rumor has it that the president
of the freshman class mysteriously
disappeared at a late hour last
night. Suspicion points strongly to
the “strong arm spirits that work
in the night. ” Reliable information
is to the effect that he will appear
at the mix this afternoon.
This afternoon on Kincaid field at 1
o’clock sharp is to be staged the long
anticipated event of the year, the an
nual soph-frosh mix. All indications
are that this little struggle is to be the
biggest and most spectacular of the
year. Opinions gathered from various
sources on the campus agree in the
detail that this is to be the squarest
of all square mixes. Many have care
fully looked the situation over and
have stated that from the looks of the
type of men that are to represent the
class of 1925 it is apparent that the
sophs are going to have a tough time
repelling the onslaught of the babes.
The frosh got together yesterday after
noon and made arrangements to be fully
represented on the field today, and
a surprise for second-year men is held
not unlikely.
Leith Abbott promises to have his
cops on hand to rigidly enforce order
on the field. All the cops are equipped
with brand new shiny stars and with
such display are ready to doubly en- |
force discipline.
Abbott Makes Comment
Commenting on the outlook for the
afternoon Abbott said, “Since this is
a new age, it is only right' that the
frosh should win. We intend this to be
the fairest of squarest mixes and will
do the utmost in our power to make
it so.”
Bill Johnson announces that his class
is thoroughly organized for the fray
this afternoon. He denies the rumors
that the sophs are going to have dif
’ ficqjty repelling the 1925 onslaughts
and believes that on the contrary they •
will be prepared to exhibit their super
ior strength.
“I have appointed Hal Kelly to take
charge of the organization of the sopho
mores on the field ” said Johnson, and
I wish every member of this class would
make it a point to get in touch with
him. Of course this is to be the ‘squar
est mix. ’ Who will emerge victorious
remains to be seen. I am in no posi
tion to voice an opinion as to the chan
ces of the frosh. The less said, the
Braddock in Charge
“Doc” Braddock is handling the
program for this afternoon’s party. He
is enthusiastic as to the outlook of af
fairs from all standpoints.
“What I particularly want to empha
size,” said Braddock,” is the fact that
everybody who is not attending the
game at Portland is absolutely expected

New Phase of Seating Problem; Dean
Sheldon Outwitted by Douglass
Last week Dean Sheldon tried to re
lieve the shortage in his room by drag
ging in chairs from Dr. DeBusk’s room.
After several trips he mopped his brow
in perplexity for apparently there was
nothing to show for his efforts. Dean
Sheldon made one more trip and re
turned with a ehair under each arm j
just in time to see Professor Douglass
escaping with a couple of the chairs
which the dean had pilfered from the ;
other class room.
A halt was called, explanations en- '
sued, followed by disarmament and a
treaty in which is was agreed to let
the janitor adjust difficulties and pose
hereafter as official seat shifter.
However even the janitor is now re
lieved of sliding the chairs as abcut three
doxen new seats were installed Friday.
Yellow Sheet
Reprints; Fizz
Bang Startles
Seldom is the case that the Emer
ald is scooped. This morning, how
ever, a piece of crepe floats from the
door ef the reporters’ room.
It happened so suddenly and so far
from campus environs that really the
Emerald can not be held responsible.
But there is no use crying over spoilt
milt. If the milk is spoilt it is spoilt
no matter who left the ice box open,
so the Emerald retires meekly before
the biasing light of its contemporary,
“Fizz Bang.”
Dresser in a beautiful pink rai
ment, adorned with great black heads
such as is the pride of yellow sheets
of former days, Sigma Delta Chi’s
brain child made its appearance at
the Y. M.-Y. W. mix last night and
its success was instantaineous.
“Drags woman” sc re ached an at
rocious black steamer across the top
of the front page. It was only upon
closer investigation that the words
“to annual mix” could be discerned
tucked at the end of the line. “Ore
gons’ football chances vanish,”
howled two great ribbons below the
name plate. Those with keen eyes
however found tucked between the
lines “are bright: enemies” . . . .
so that the whole thing told the
reader that “Oregon football chances
are bright; enemy chances vanish.”
Besides scathing denunciation of
faculty members told in a humorous
vein the paper was also devoted to
such departments as “those who come
and go,” “Twenty five years ago
today.” “Do you remember” and stor
ies bearing delightfully sensational
heads but whose content did not
create such a stir.
So eager was the demand for the
glaring sheet that a second edition
was printed which went almost as
rapidly as the first. For those who
failed to secure copies last night
it was announced that additional
copies would be on sale at the frosh
soph mix this afternoon.
Old timers say that the crowd at
the mix was the livest gathering of
the kind they can remember.
Elvers of cider on which floated
many doughnuts flowed down
thirsty throats; stunts; costumes;
and general good time placed the
evening in the permanent college
calendar of all the enjoyment seek
Mrs. Lillian Ackerman Carlton Files
Study Card Bringing Total
to Present Mark
The total enrollment o£ the Univer
sity reached 2,000 late yesterday after
noon when Mrs. Lillian Ackerman Carl
ton filed her study card at the Admin
istration building as the last step in
Mrs. Carlton is a student in the
graduate school working toward the
degree of Master of Arts. She is ma
joring in education. In 1898 she re
ceived the degree of Bachelor of Arts
from the University. She is the wife
of E. F. Carlton, city superintendent
of schools of Eugene and formerly as
sistant State Superintendent, and is the
daughter of the late J. H. Ackerman
who was formerly president of the Ore
gon State Normal School, and state
superintendent of public instruction.
The total of 2,000 on the campus does
not include the 152 full time resident
students in the Medical School in Port
land who are just as much a part of the
University as the law department, ac
cording to Carlton Spencer, registrar.
Besides this he predicts that there are
several others who will file cards yet.
The World Almanac is no longer in
fallable. Mrs. Fitch has caught that
famous international authority in a
mistake. This year’s statistics for the
University of California, according to !
the almanac, are 641 students and 29
instructors. There also appears to be
no president at that institution, as the
space for his name is left blank.
At the annual inauguration assembly
Df the University high school Friday
morning Robert McKnight was in- i
stalled as president, Alphonse Corn, j
vice-president; Vuelta 8tivers, secre
tary and Teddy Rogh, treasurer. Short j
addresses were made by H. R. Douglass,
professor of education, and Harold ■
Serdonier, retiring president.
Mu Zeta Kappa, Local, to Be
Chapter of Phi Mu Alpha;
Officer on Way
Outside Talent to be Brought
to University; 34 Members
to be Taken In
‘ Psi chapter of Phi Mu Alpha, national
honorary music fraternity, which has
been granted to Mu Zeta Kappa, local
music fraternity, will be installed on
Sunday afternoon. Casey Lutton, na
tional . secretary of the organization,
who is to arrive today, will have charge
of the installation.
Phi Mu Alpha, commonly called Sin
fonia, was formed in 1898 at the New
England Conservatory of Music. It was
organized at first as a club, but in 1900
it was determined to expand and form
a regular college fraternity with chap
ters in music schools of approved excel
lence. It is the only large men’s music
fraternity in existence.
Two Other Coast Chapters
The purpose of the fraternity is to
promote a cultivated interest in music
from an amateur standpoint. Hereto
fore, its expansion has been in musical
conservatories only, and but recently
have chapters from the universities of
the country been admitted. The school
of music of the University of Oregon
has received national recognition in
being one of the first university music
schools to be admitted to Phi Mu Alpha.
During the year chapters have been in
stalled in the University of Washington
and Washington State College. These
two universities and Oregon have the
only chapters on thePacific Coast.
Personnel of Chapter
Psi chapter will be instrumental in
bringing outside talent to the Univer
sity. The members of Mu Zeta Kappa,
who will be installed are Maurice Eben,
President; Glen Morrow, Secretary
Treasurer; J. J. Landsbury, John S.
Evans, Rex Underwood, Leland Coon,

Membership Privilege Extended Only
To Students of Merit; Society
H Hopes to Nationalize
The French Club, which held its first
meeting last night, is to be conducted
on an honor basis this year. Only stu
dents whose work merits membership
will have the privilege of joining. It
is the hope of the society to national
ize French clubs in other colleges and
particularly those of the Pacific coast.
The plans for the year were outlined
and these committees were appointed.
Program—Wilbur Bolton, Germaine
Dew, Miss Gouy; Executive—Jean De

Florence Garrett, Dorothy Manville,
Jean DePaul. Madame Fayard Coon was
appointed faculty adviser.
Miss Guoy, who has recently returned
from a visit to her home in France, gave
a short talk about her trip. Germaine
Dew gave two anecdotes in French, and
Gwladvs Keeney sang. After refresh
ments a short time was spent in French

Five Years of Research Devoted to Tiny Insect
** * * * * * * *
Swat the fly! Not in the private
laboratory of D. E. Lancefield, located
in famous old Deady. Dr. Lancefield,
instructor of heredity and physiology
in the department of zoology, has
several thousand little flies caged in
glass containers, where they come into
existence as pupa, grow fat on a special
diet of banana agar, pass through a
stage of laziness and dormancy, and
then grow wings to fly around their
very limited expanse of space.
But they do not all grow wings. Mr.
Lancefield etherized a few score of the
little insects,_ known as the fruit fly,
for his interviewer to observe under the
binoculars. The group first placed un
der observation were examples of a
characteristic phase of hereditary varia
tion; the wings were atrophied into
uselessness. Perhaps 10,000 specimens
have to be observed before a varia
tion is found. After male and female
variants are located they are placed in
the culture and inside of one week the
generations will number over 250.
A discovery which will possibly have
great importance in the world of gene
tics is a variation of the fruit fly
developed by Mr. Lancefield Bince com
ing to Oregon from Columbia this fall.
In the process of insulation, interbreed
ing, and observation, a race of male
less flies has been developed. One
mother fly has produced 145 daughters
to date without a single male. Mr.
Lancefield believes that this is a not
able variation and says that nothing
exactly similar has ever been observed.
Previously, males have been killed be
fore development by the distribution
of certain factors, but not in the same
line as Mr. Lancefield’s discovery.
Some 7,000,000 fruit flies have been
observed by research men in the past
ten years and in this great number were
found 300 mutations. Dr. Lancofield
has studied this fly for five years.
“The flies are such good material that
we can work out the principles of her
edity and know what to expect from
animals,” said Dr. Lancefield as he ex
plained the comparative ease with which
the prolific fruit fly can be studied.
Not only are the principles of muta
tion and heredity applicable to ani
mals, said the research worker, but man
ca.n be studied by the same method.
The tiny flies are shaken from the
culture into another container, quickly
etherized, then placed under the bi
noculars. One group will be charac
terized by curled hairs; others have
normal sized wings; some are yelloy
eyed, others are rod. Dr. Lancefield
keeps his flies in many glass containers,
and each bottle has a generation of flies
with some characteristic variation.
“About how many flies hnvo you!”
Dr. Lancefield was asked. “Oh! gosh,
I don’t know,” answered the biologist
as he glanced toward his glass prisons
with their swarms of countless insects.
Some of the flieB, perhaps pets, crawled
over the binoculars and monographs
which had the fruit fly as their theme.
Dr. Lancefield, who has studied un
der Dr. T. H. Morgan, nationally known
as an authority in genetics, is reluct
ant to swat the fly, but he does swat
the tennis ball. Information obtained
from other sources tlign the little lab
oratory with the name “Mr. D. E.
Lancefield" tacked on its door, says
that Dr. Lancefield is considered one of
the best tennis players on tho Univer
sity campus.
President Campbell, Dean Straub and
Dean Fox Will Talk to Yearlings
In Men’s Gymnasium
Tonight is the big night! Every fresh
man on the campus will be on hand at
the men’s gymnasium at 8 o’clock. All
the pretty girls will be there and all tho
handsome young men. It is the night
of the freshman get-together party.
There will be no molesting sophomores
to hinder the coming guests so no one
will stay away because of fear. This
will be one of the biggest freshman af
fairs of the year; besides the dancing
there will be special features given by
freshman talent. Helen Harper will
play a violin solo and Stuart Biles will
give a specialty dance. There will also
be vocal solos by Roy Bryson, and a
whistling feature by Elizabeth Phelps.
Refreshments have been planned, and
there will be gallons of punch for the
tlfirsty. A special four-piece orchestra
has been secured, consisting of piano,
banjo, traps, and saxaphone. Everyone
present will wear a green tag with the
inscription: Hello! My name is John
Jones. This tag will serve as an in
troduction and thus will facilitate get
ting acquainted. Any man is privileged
to ask any girl for a dance without the
formality of an introduction. However
if he desires, one of the floor committee
will introduce him. This floor com
mittee has not yet been appointed but
will consist of five boys and five girls.
President Campbell, Dean Fox and
Dean Straub will be present and will
speak to the class. This is to be a non
date affair but all the girls will be es
corted home. The committee is com
posed of Donald Woodward, Geraldine
Boot and Mary Harris.
Weekly “Clearing House” Will Give
Chance to Tabulate Work and
Arrange Future Material
Reorganization of tho graduate de
partment of the school of education this
year has resulted in the addition of
three seminar courses to ttie one given
formerly. Through these changes grad
uate work will be offered in any of tho
:four departments in the school. Every
two v.-eeks a “get-together” of the four
departments is hold which is a “clear
ing house” to give the students the op
portunity to tabulate the information
(collected and to look over future work.
T’r. ff T). Sheldon, dean of the school
of education, is giv:ng a course in edu
cational history and sociology and l>r.
B. W. DeBusk supervises a seminar in
educational psychology. Dr. A.
Gregory is working with six graduate
students on “School Administration.”
; P.-ofessor II. R. Doeglass has eight stu
dents doing research work in the theory
of teaching in secondary sel ools m
such subjects as, “Agencies t/salde in

Coaches’ Heavy Hammering at
Green Eleven Beginning
to Bring Results
Muscovites Confident This is
Year for Revenge for
Series of Defeats
- '3
me eyes or tne rootball west will be
focused upon Multnomah field this
afternoon when Coach Kelly’s speedy
Idaho aggregation clashes with “Shy”
Huntington’s Lemon-Yellow eleven.
Practically all the grid followers of
tho coast doubt the ability of Hun
tington 's groen, inexperienced machine
to lower the Gem State colors for the
14th time. This opinion is, however,
based upon Oregon’s ineffectiveness in
her two practice games against Wil
lamette and Pacific universities, and
little note has been taken of the won
derful improvement made in the last
woek of training.
All last woek from 3 until 0 up to
Thursday, when practice lightened a bit
to taper the squad into condition, Hun
tington and his two able assistants
“Brick” and “Bart” have been ham
mering football “savvy” and experience
into tho green material. It will be a
different team that facos Idaho this
afternoon from that which stumbled
through to the heavy end of a 21-7
score against Pacific last Saturday. ,
Hospital Squad Large
Save for the injury jinx which has
followed Huntington throughout the
season and which even Trainer Bill
Hayward’s uncanny skill in healing
twisted ankles and broken bones has
not been able to offset, the coaching
staff would not be on needles and pins
in regard to tho backfleld situation.
But with Billy Beinhart out with a
broken colar bone and torn ligaments,
with Tommy DeArmand’s kneo in bad
shape, and with Hal Chapman’s twisted
foot giving him more or less trouble
it is imperative that there be few in
juries in todays struggle.
For if tho Lemon-Yellow can defeat
the eloven from Moscow, or hold them
to a close score with a minimum of
injuries the outlook is excellent for
the varsity to finish a successful season.
A defeat at the hands of Coach Kelly’s
team will not necessarily indicate weak
ness on the part of Oregon for the
Moscow institution undoubtedly has
tho strongest team of its football career.
Moscow Men Confident
Idaho is confident of victory, con
fident that at last they will be able to
break the long string of defeats at the
hands of Oregon. Couch Kelly figures
that it was a fluke that defeated him
last year, for with the score 7-6 in
favor of the visitors, Bud Brown, this
I year’s guard, playing end, picked up a
fumble after being boxed in by the
Idaho line and raced from the middle
|of the field for a touchdown. So with
a much stronger team than that of last
season, and with the Oregon eleven
supposedly weaker, the Gem State
coaches, players and supporters figure
that this is their time to win. But
Oregon has .always defeated the Mob
cowites, even with weaker teams, so
the outcome is awaited with hope by
both factions
Oregon Team Hoavier
A feature that is looked to by Lemon
Yellow supporters to assist in bring
ing home the bacon is the fact that
Idaho is outweighed by the varsity, six
and one-half pounds to the man over
the entire eleven. The line advantage
for Oregon is two pounds to the man,
while behind, the varsity outweighs
i Idaho 12 pounds to the man.
The game today will be capabfv
handled as far as officials go, with
George Varnell, of Spokane, considered
jone of the greatest officials in the
Northwest, acting as referee and Plow
den Stott of Portland as umpire.
That there will be organized rooting
for both teams is the latest report from
; Portland. Oregon hopes to assemble
two thousand, undergraduate, former
student and alumni rooters while the
. Idaho people are planning to get every
1 Idaho former student and alumni out
: for the game.
