    Oregon Daily Emerald
Through Defensive Drillling
Ends Preparation On
Home Field
Will Leave This Morning at
7:45; Strong Showing
Is Expected
With the echo of last night’s Cougar
crushing rally ringing in their ears
the football squad 19 strong with
coaches and trainer will board the
7:25 Oregon Electric for Portland, de
termined to “Crush the Cougars” or
die trying.
The trip will be made in two jumpj,
the team stopping over in Portland to
day to practice on Multnomah field
this afternoon completing the journey
to Pullman tonight. Practice will be
held on Rogers field at Pullman Fri
day afternoon in final preparation for
the game Saturday.
Last night the coaehes gave the team
a thorough drilling on defense. Brick
Mitchell sent his “Washington State”
team composed, of subs against the
first-string line time after time in line
bucks, end runs and passes. Brick
called the signals for the “Staters”
himself and put a world of pep and
fight into his aggregation.
Strong Showing Expected
Head Coach Huntington expects his
team to make a strong showing against
the Cougars, although he says that they
have a great team up there. With the
improvement the men have made since
the California game “Shy” concedes
his team a chance with the Staters.
With Parsons and “Tiny” Shields up
in the line it is strengthened a great
deal since they are not only fast for
that position but are very heavy weigh
ing in around ISO pounds. Brown’s
return to end fills up the hole left
By Captain Howard’s injury and in
creases the power of the Oregon attack.
Attack Looks Better
The backfield has smoothed down
its play to a marked extent, both on
the attack and defense. Fumbling,
which proved so costly in the earlier
games, has been virtually eliminated,
and the backs have learned to follow
their interference. Oregon’s attack
looked much smoother and had more
smash and drive to it than it has at
any time this season.
Huntington and his staff know what
to expect from the Cougars after Sat
urday’s game, for the boys from Pull
man were holding nothing back in the
game with California. Considerable
time was spent" last night in drilling
them against the Cougars’ famous on
side punt attack, which almost netted
Welch’s team a touchdown against
Andy Smith’s Bruins last week.

Pullman trip.
Hugh Clerin, left end.

Normal ’85 on
Old Memorial
Causes Query
Just west of Deady hall there
stands an iron grill work fence en
j closing a small plot of ground, now
ragged with weeds and tall grass.
The iron work has rusted from the
rain of many years and in places is
crooked with old age. The entrance
bears the inscription Normal ’85
over the archway.
Many strangers on the campus
have inquired as to the significance
of the structure with no enlighten
ment. Thirty six years ago the last
class in the normal department was
graduated from the University. Nine
students were enrolled in the depart
ment in ’85 which was the final cur
tain of the normal department. On
leaving the school they gave this
structure in memory of the class.
Six members are living, Bessie Day
being the only one residing in Eu
gene gone, the others have scattered
throughout the country.
Present Capacity but 8000; Large
Crowd Expected to Attend
Homecoming Game
New bleachers are being built at the
north end of Hayward field at an ap
proximate cost of $3000 to the Univer
sity. Carpenters are working daily and
the construction will be completed
within a week and ready to fill the
need of Homecoming week-end. The
new bleachers will have a seating ca
pacity of about 5000. This question
“depends on how close you want to
sit,” said Mr. Newell, superintendent
of properties.
The present capacity of the grand
stand and the bleachers is nearly
8000. These were built in 1918 and
were then sufficient to take care of the
crowds. With the increase of football
popularity and the prospective Home
coming visitors, plus students and
townspeople, the inadequacy of room
has been foreseen, and it was con
sidered necessary to increase the seat
ing capacity to 13,000.
Last year at Corvallis, almost 13,000
persons witnessed the Oregon-O. A. C.
game. The attendance at this year’s
game, in all probability, will not fall
short of that number. O. A. C. stu
dents think this is their year, said
Mr. Newell. This means that a large
percentage of that student body will
make the trip to Eugene to view the
big scrap. Weather predictions are
difficult to make and weather condi
tions do to some extent govern the at
tendance at a game, according to Mr.
Newell. However, if the weather is
favorable and the prospects are good
for a greater crowd than the 13,000
seats will accomodate, 1000 more
bleaehers may be built under the grand
Oregon Man at Harvard Writes of
Impressions of People
F. A. Buholzer, winner of the Car
negie fellowship at Oregon last year
and assistant instructor in the history
department while here, writes from
Harvard that all goes well, but that
his impressions of Cambridge and Bos
ton are not the best. “The people here
do not seem like Americans,” he says.
As a student of history he finds many
things of interest, especially the land
marks of the revolutionary times.
In this letter Mr. Buholzer speaks
of the Washington elm, the tree under \
which Washington took command of
the army in 1775. There is an elm
tree on the Oregon campus which grew
from a sprig taken from the famous
old tree in Cambridge.
Dormitory Family Consumes
Food in Ravenous Rations
What do we eat?
Has it ever oceured to you to wonder
how much food the student body con
sumes in a day? Almost a fourth of
the students enrolled on the campus
get their meals at the University
dormitories, Friendly and Hendricks
halls. A few questions bring out the
fact that these 470 men and women eat
230 pounds of meat at one meal; their
unbridled appetites dispose of 21
pounds of butter at a meal; and when
they have brick ice cream, 62 bricks
are required. When the menu says
sweet potatoes, two and a half sacks
are required to feed this enormous fam
If cauliflower or cabbage is served,
the amount needed is 140 pounds.
When rolls are served, 1,000 of them
disappear. Each meal sees the disap
pearance of 40 loaves of bread. “If
it is rasin bread,” laughed Mrs. Edna
P. Datson, who makes out the menus,
“forty are not enough.” Two cases
of lettuce, (8 dozen heads) are required
for one meal. 8ix gallons of mayon
naise are used at one serving. It is
chopped by an electric food chopper
which occupies about four square feet
of floor space, and will chop 100 pounds
of cabbage in eight minutes. This
same chopper chops and mixes all
sandwich filler. “It will chop every
thing that’s chopable, even fingers,”
declared the operator.
Every day, the dormitory family uses
94 gallons of whole milk, besides
12 quarts of whipping cream. For

Men’s Glee Club to go South,
Girls to Coos Bay, Orches
tra to East Side
Seventy-one Members to go
on Tour; Mildred Brown
to be Accompanist
The men’s glee club to Southern Ore
gon, the girl’s club to Coos Bay, and
the orchestra to Eastern Oregon. This
is the tentative routing of the three
University musical organizations as
presented yesterday to Graduate Man
ager Benefiel by the managers of the
groups*- The two glee clubs will travel
during the Christmas holidays, and the
orchestra will not go until spring.
Either or both of the singing groups
will probably plan a spring trip in ad
dition to the one announced, but that
will depend largely upon the success of
their first attempt.
According to a schedule proposed by
Arthur Eudd, manager of the men’s
glee club, the men’s trip will start
Friday, December 16, with a concert
in Cottage Grove. -Medford will be
reached for a concert Saturday night.
Sunday will be spent on the train,
Klamath Falls being reached late that
evevning. >
Dance to be Given
Two concerts and probably a dance
will be given there, Monday and Tues
day nights. December 21, 22 and 23
concerts will be given in Ashland,
Grants Pass and Eoseburg, respectively.
After the Eoseburg appearance the
club will disband until after Christmas,
when a concert probably will be given
in Hillsboro on the 28th and in Port
land on the 29th. The final concert
will be given in Salem, December 30,
if present plans carry.
A more extensive spring trip is plan
ned for the men if the holiday jaunt
works out, according to the manager.
Ernest Haycox, acting manager of tha
orchestra, has announced no definite
schedule as yet but it is thought that
The Dalles, Pendleton, La Grande,
Baker and other towns of Eastern Ore
gon will be taken in when the spring
trip is taken.
The girls’ glee club, going to Coos
Bay, will probably play Marshfield
North Bend, Coquille, Bandon, Myrtle
Point and Powers. Ralph Couch is
manager of the club.
Washington Trip Is In Doubt
Whether or not the girls will take
the proposed jaunt into Washington is
still very much in the air, as are, in
fact most of the present plans. Offi
cial sanction must be obtained before
any further action will be taken by the
Alumni in the various towns to be
visited will be used in promoting the
advertising, and the concerts will be
staged for the most part under the aus
pices of high schools. Members of the
organizations will be “farmed out” in
order t4 save expense, which is in ac
cordance with the plan always used.
Letters will be sent out this week
to former Oregon students asking their
cooperation in arousing interest in the
concerts. Advertising material will
be sent out at an early date and a
lively campaign conducted.
Due to an unusually large amount of
good material all three organizations
are considerably “above par” this year,
according to Dean John Landsbury.
Practices are being held regularly, and
home concerts will be given before
many weeks, it is thought. A dance
may be given to raise money for or
chestra instruments, if the plan meets
the approval of the “powers that be.”
Seventy-one to Travel
Nineteen men, the manager and di
rector will travel with the men’s glee
club and about 24 girls, the manager j
and director, will take the girls’ glee
club trip. There are 24 orchestra mem- j
The latest additions to the ladies’ |
group are Mildred Brown, Oakland,
California, accompanist, and Beatrice
Qorman, second soprano. Miss Brown
is a graduate of Kings conservatory of
Music at San Jose and has had several!
years of experience both as a teacher ,
of glee club and chorus work as an
Le Laine West will be the only can
didate for the presidency of the T. W.
C. A. The statement made in the
Emerald of Wednesday that Charlotte
Clark would be a candidate is a mis
take. The election will be held at the
regular association meeting today at
4:45 in the bungalow.

Bill and Shy Address Huge Rally
“I want to toll you students right
now we have a football team. This
game Saturday is no cinch. Certain
Portland sport writers say we are go
ing to get walloped. I ’d like to tell
them faee to face that they do not
know what they are talkiug about.”
In this manner spoke “Shy” Hunt
ington from the stage of Villard last
night when five members of the foot
ball team, President Campbell and Bill
Hayward appeared before the great
mass of students which crowded the
old hall to capacity limit. The famed
Oregon spirit was reincarnated last
night, and the Thundering Thousand
whooped it up like a building full of
caged active volcanoes. ' So great was
the din and clamor that the accentu
ated silence which ensued when the
speakers arose was filled with' the
ghostly echoes of cow-bells, triangles,
and a medley of turbulent sounds. This
was the brand of silence which slowly
filled the hall as “Olrio” quieted the
thunderous commotion.
“This,” said Bill, “shows the team
that you are all behind them. Next
Saturday you will see a wonder battle
and a wonder fight, and if W. S. C.
wins they will know that they have
played a wonder game. This is a great
spirit shown tonight. Tho atmosphere
of victory must bo kept developing
until Nov. -9. O. A. C. seems to have
the better team, but I have seen many
of those better teams get licked. Stu
dents, you can do more by keeping up
this spirit until the 19th and showing
the team that you are behind them
than all the second teams out there
on the field. You people develop com
bativeuess and the team will do its
As Bill sat down, "Obie” rushed to
the edge of the stage waving his bat
tered megaphone and gave Bill and
“Shy” and the team an answer which
was sanctioned by a mighty roar of
voices and a clang of instruments that
shook the windows of Villard. "As
long as there are ”000 pair of lungs
on the campus we will be behind them.
Come on, let us break a Varsity yell.”
In staccato broadsides, each one ap
proved by the Yell King, the students
The old fight was rejuvenated last
night. It was no prodded affair. Sin
cerity permeated President Campbell’s
address, sincerity made “Ohio's” husky
voice quiver, sincerity was in the tone
of the coaches; sincerity prompted the
students to change the vociferous thun
der storm into a cloudburst of enthusi
asm. “Shy” appeared to speak with
impressive sincerity as he said, “I wish
that all the players were here to sec
President Campbell in the prelimi
nary address admonished the students
to stick behind the team, told the root
ers that the games played wore only
preparatory for the big clash with O.
A. C., and reminded the students of
past history, and in conclusion told
the students that, there should be no
knockers around the campus. “No
matter what happens,” said President
Campbell, “pat the players on the back
and tell them they did a magnificent
for the University.”
New Y. M. C.A. Secretary Here
Ready to Take Up New Post
L. P. Putnam, new secretary of the
Y. M. C. A., under whose direction the
University Y. is planning the biggest
program ever put on here, arrived last
night from Chicago.
Mr. Putnam, who is himself a col
lege man, is not entirely a stranger to
Oregon, having been here in 1913 on
a visit to his brother, Bex Putnam,
then a student here and later a gradu
ate of this institution. Another brother
and a sister also attended here.
College work is the now secretary’s
idea of a real job. “I regard it” he
said, “as the strategic part of the whole
scheme.” He realizes, he said last night,
from what he has been told that the
contract he is undertaking here is a
large one, but he has the sort of keen,
capable look that spells confidence.
The new secretary was met at the
S. P. station last night by Dr. John
F. Bovard, president of the Y. M. C.
A. advisory board; Mrs. C. R. Don
nelly, hut mother; M. H. Douglass, and
A. L. Lomax of the advisory board;
Owen Callaway, president of the Uni
versity Y. M. C. A., and Roy Veatch,
of the Y. M. C. A. cabinet. He is
to be the guest of the Y. M. C. A.
workers at dinner at the Anchorage
this evening.
For the present Mr. Putnam is stay
ing at the Osburn. Mrs. Putnam is in
Garden Grove, Cal., with her mother,
where she will remain for several weeks
until living arrangements can be made
Mr. Putnam has been connected with
the Chicago Young Men’s Christian
association since September 1, 1912.
lie was later promoted to business
secretary of student work, which po
sition he held until the entrance of the
United States into the world war.
After serving in Camp Grant as
building secretary, Mr. Putnam sailed
for Prance, whore he Berved with the
Rainbow division in the training area
as hut secretary, and at the front in
the trenches. While in France he was
acting director of “Y” work with the
Rainbow division, and later, director
of the same in the fifth division, both
in training and at the front. After
returning to the United States Mr. Put
nam was personal secretary for the
Illinois war work, being in charge of
service for demobilized men. lie is a
member of Beta Theta Pi fraternity.
On October 1, 1919, Mr. Putnam re
turned to the Chicago Central depart
ment in the capacity of Christian ser
vice secretary, which position he has
retained till lately, when the ill health
of Mrs. Putnam made it necessary that
they make a change.
Basket Ball Team Schedules First

The University high school basket
ball team will meet the Elmira quintet
in the first game of the season at the

Faculty Action Taken After
Petition of Council is
Read at Meeting
Undergraduates to be Asked
Not to Let Lay-off
Affect Morale
i’riday after Thanksgiving will be
I a holiday, was the decision of the fac
ulty at. a meeting yesterday evening
: when a petition from the student coun
cil was presented.
('lasses will be held up until Wed
' nesday night, instead of Wednesday
i noon, ns in former years and a close
j check will be kept on attendance. The
l student council promised to the faculty
I to use influence to see that the holiday
is properly kept and that too much
tirau is not lost.
The petition was read by Helen
j Carson, secretary of the student coun
cil and presented by Norton Winnard,
i vice-president, who had been invited
| to attend the meeting.
The faculty action was not unani
mous and discussion in the meeting
raised the point of whether a solid
student sentiment favored the vaca
tion or whether it was merely the desire
to avoid classes.
Since the matter was raised some
time ago many student communica
tions have been printed in the Emerald
and opinion has been widespread that
the holiday should bo granted.
A petition addressed to the council
containing 1000 student names was al
so given the faculty. This is the first
time the question of the Friday holiday
has come before the faculty as a whole
for consideration, the origfnal deci
sion having been made by a faculty
committee. The favorable action now
enables over n 1000 to go home to spend
Turkey Day with their families, and
means that the Multnomah-Oregon
game in Portland Thanksgiving will
be attended by a much largor number
of students.
Blind Journalist, Willamette Graduate,
Declared to Have Magnetic
B. Frank Irvine, tho blind editor of
the Oregon Journal, will address the
University assembly at 11:30 this morn
ing in Villard hall, speaking on the
subject, “Limitations of Armaments”.
Mr. Irvino is an orator of no mean abil
ity and all members of the faculty
and student body on the campus who
have had an opportunity to hear him
speak highly of his skill.
“He is a splendid speaker.” said
Dean Dyment.
“Go ahead;' he is a wonderful
speaker; you can’t say too much about
him,” said another faculty member.
But the fact chiefly remarkable
about the editor is his magnetic per
sonality. Even the cold print of the
editorial page has made for Mr. Irvine
some of his warmest friends.
“I know of no journalist in the coun
try-side who is as much a heart-friend
of the people as Mr. Irvine.” said
Dean Dyment, speaking without a mo
ment’s hesitation. “He is intensely
loyal to what he construes as the
people.” Dean Dyment as an old news
paper man has known Mr. Irvino for
many years.
Mr. Irvine graduated from Willam
ette university. After leaving college
he bought and operated a newspaper at
| Scio, Ore. Later he became editor of
the Corvallis Gazette-Times. Early in
! life his eyes became weak and about
15 years ago he became totally blind.
His spirit was undaunted, however, and
he continued in his work. He became
prominent in the Democratic politics
of the state during the same period
in which he rose rapidly in journalism.
With regard to the topic on which
he will speak this morning, Mr. Irvine
