Welch Makes Many Changes
in Lineup After Defeat by
California Bears
- \
Team for Battle With Lemon
Yellow Still Uncertain;
Moe Sax May Play
By Thad Byrne, Associate Sport Editor
The Evergreen, W. S. C.
Since the defeat parcelled out to his
pets by the Bears <Jn Multnomah field
last Saturday, Coach Gus Welch has
been driving his Cougar squad des
perately, incessantly, in an effort to
build up a winning combination against
Gus Welch
gregation next Sat
u relay. “Gloomy”
Gus knows Oregon's
past gridiron record
only too well to rely
on any comparison
of scores to win his
gam'- * ' ' ’m.
The fact that, even
thus far into mid
season, he is still
shifting his men from
first team to second
team and from back
field to line, shows
that he is ^worried
over the probable
outcome of tomor
row’s fracas. The
Cougar mentor is
taking no chances, as.
the large squad of
veterans with which
lie started the sea
son is nearly intact.
No Players Lost permanently
Washington State has possibly the
shortest practice period every evening
of any other school on the Coast, as j
the men do not get out until 4:30.
This handicap showed ^up plainly in
last Saturday’s game—the Bruins win
ning simply on a better knowledge of
the fine points of the game.
Thus far the Cougars have been for
tunate enough to confine their cas
ualty Hst to minor injuries, none of
the players yet being lost permanently
to the squad. “Curly” Skadan, who ;
called signals in the first two practice j
tilts of the season, has been bothered !
with a weak ankle, but is still turning j
out with the second team.
Few Players Sure of Places
No one, not even the coaching staff, i
will know who will start in tomorrow’s !
contest until the opening whistle ,due j
to Welch’s policy of trying out new
men each evening. Zaepfel and Hick
ey, stars of last year’s game frosh,
performed like veterans in the Bruin,
melee, and will probably be in the line
up. If the day is right for open field
running, flashy little Moe Sax will;
also start, although he did not get a
chance to play at Portland. In the
line, the only men who seem to be sure
of their berths are Durrwachter, cap-1
tain Dunlap, and Dunton. Just who
will call signals is a matter of con
jecture, as this task has been performed
successively by Sax, Skadan, and Me

Students to Start Making Appoint
ments With Downtown Studios
Alt pictures that are to appear in the
1922 Oregana must be taken before
December 3. The .downtown studios,
Tollman’s, MeKune and Bomane’s are
now ready to begin on the work for
the University students and in order
that all of the solios may be made with
in the stipulated time, the editorial
staff of the Oregana urges that ap
pointments be made at once.
The staff also emphasizes the nec
essity of ordering from the photogra
pher a sufficient number of solios to
include each organization to which the
student belongs. Unless this is done,
the staff can not promise that his
picture will be included in all the ^ ari
ous groups of which he is a member.
According to those in charge, work en
tailed by the use of individual pictures
is very difficult, and the results can
not be" satisfactory unless each student
is willing to do his part—that is, have
his picture taken early, and order one
solio for eaeh time he expects his pict
ure to appear in the book.
O.A.C. Hopeful
• from Prexy to
Greenest Rook
O. A. C. students are looking for
ward with enthusiasm to the Oregon
game, says Earl Kilpatrick of the
extension division, tjho has just re
turned from a trip to Corvallis, where
he addressed the Benton county
teachers’ association. Mr. Kilpatrick
was present by invitation at the O.
A. C. convocation, the bi-weekly as
sembly, on Wednesday.
A considerable part of the two
honr assembly period, Mr. Kilpatrick
said, was devoted to a rally with
which the students greeted their
team, just returned from defeat at
the hands of Stanford.
President Kerr expressed confi
dence in the result of the Aggie
game with Washington State College
on Armistice day, and remarked con
cerning the coming game with Ore
gon: “Although we shall meet a fine
team composed of excellent players
at Eugene on November 19th, per
sonally I have not the slightest doubt
as to the result.”
Chemawans Have Good Rec
ord This Season; Game
to be Nov. 12
With two games in their wake Baz
Williams’ freshman gridiron wranglers
will struggle for honors against the
strong Chemewa eleven tomorrow after
noon on Hayward field. The Indian
team is no weakling organization, hav
ing shown up fairly well against the
O. A. 0. varsity and against Willamette
Coaches Williams and Brandenberg
have been drilling the old plays into
the men and getting a higher degree
of efficiency in their execution. Run
ning signals and light scrimmage con
stitutes this week’s practice, the men
being used up from the Washington
game. By tomorrow they will be loos
ened up enough to put all they have
against the red men.
Lovelace Replaced by Haak
Now that Lovelace is out of the run
ning, the frosh are in need of a punter.
Lovelace, while a green hand at the
game, showed unmistakable signs of
developing into a real punter, and ac
cording to Williams, did fine work
against the Washington yearlings. The
task of punting will probably fall to
Haak, quarter. While he makes no
record punts he is a good, heady, con
sistent player, and should make a good
showing against the invaders Satur
The coaches are a bit skeptical about
the outcome of the battle. Chemawa
may have some dark horses to slip in
against the freshmen. At any rate
they are not looking for anything easy
in the Indian team. Every now and
then Chemawa springs a surprise in the
way of an eleven, and it is about time
for them to do it this year.
Dope Favors Rook Team
There remains but one game on the
freshman schedule after tomorrow, and
that with the O. A. C. rooks in Cor
vallis November 12. The O. A. C. in
fants are looking forward to this game
with great anticipation, and^are sav
ing their energy for the la'st great
struggle of the year. Their victories
over Columbia university and Albany
college puts the dope in their favor,
but Baz’s men are determined not to
let the dope stand in their way in de
feating their greatest rival.
Tomorrow the freshmen meet a team
more evenly opposed to them than they
have heretofore this season. Mt. Angel
was not in their class, and the Wash
ington aggregation outplayed them in
every department of the game, by vir
tue of their long experience and heavier
lineup. The Indians strike a happy
medium, and the game should be a
close one from the start.
An Autumn party will be given Fri
day evening Nov. 4, at the Central
Presbyterian churchy 10th and Pearl
street, by the Presbyterian Christian
Endeavor. All students are invited.
Beta Alpha Psi announces the elec
tion of Clyde Buck, Harold Simpson,

Scholastic Offerings, Oregon
Spirit, Moderate Expense
Liked by Many
Athletic Prestige Attracts few;
Advertising Has Small
“Most of the students who eome to
the University of Oregon do so because
they believe that it has distint ad
vantages over other Universities in
scholastic offering,” said Professor W.
F. Q. Thacher of the English depart
ment, while discussing the question
naire system which he inaugurated at
the beginning of this year.
These questionnaires were given out
for the purpose of finding out for
just what reason the student selected
the University, and whether the ad
vertisement program which the Univer
sity has been following has been pro
ducing thfe proper results.
The idea for this questionnaire came
to Professor Thacher while he was in
charge of the placing of the promotion
literature of the University.
Ads Poorly Placed
At that time it seemed to him that
many of the advertisements were be
ing placed so that there was no return
to the University. For this reason he
prepared a list of questions to be sub
mitted directly to the entering stu
dents in order to learn at first hand
their reasons for coming to Oregon.
The object of the questionnaire, as
it first appeared to Professor Thacher,
was to find out what effect the adver
tising program of the University had
on prospective students, but later he
decided to enlarge on this plan and in
clude all the ^promotion plans of the
The answers to the questions cover
a wide field, and a great variety of
different answers were given for the
students’ preference of Oregon.
Summary of Conclusions
These questionaires were distributed
to the freshmen taking the entrance

different sections of the English class

Mrs. Millie Trumbull Addresses
Joint Meeting of Y. W. C. A.
And Woman’s League
Working Conditions in Facto
ries, Telephone Offices and
Laundries Cited
“The problem of women in industry
is as much the problem and the con
cern of the college women as it is that
of the working woman herself, for to
day we are all working people. The
working class is composed of every
man and every woman who gives back
to life something in return for what
they take out of it,” said Mrs. Millio
Trumbull, who addressed a joint meet
ing of the Y. W. C. A. and Woman's
league in Villard hall yesterday after
Mrs. Trumbull is the Secretary In
spector of the State Industrial Wel
fare commission and for the last three
months she has made a survey of the
working conditions for women in the
state of Oregon.
Conditions are Depicted
Mrs. Trumbull spoke of conditions
in laundrys, telephone offices, and
factories; the long hours, the monotony
of the work, the insufficient remun
eration. She illustrated her points with
stories from her actual experience with
working girls. She urged college wo
men to try to grow away from the
attitude that working women are in a
class remote and separate from that of
educated young people.
“We need college women today to
help solve our problems,” said Mrs.
Trumbull, “We need them because
they can bring to us disciplined minds.
But unless they can also bring us dis
ciplined hearts we cannot use them.
The war took down the wall between
working women and college wgjnen and
we don’t want it raised again.
Regular Meeting Held
Preceding Mrs. Trumbull’s talk the
regular business* meeting of Woman’s
Leaguo was held. Ella Rawlings, presi
dent of the League, presided over the
meeting. Miss Rawlings is td leave
Saturday to attend a Woman's League

Letters shave been sent to all alumni
members of the order and it is expeeted

Jitney Dance,
Pep ’n Jazz at
Gym Saturday
Nero played the fiddle while Borne
burned. His actions would be re
garded as poor amusement, as lack
ing in pep and jazi, by Oregon stu
dents, so Sigma Delta Chi has made
It possible that the students of the
University may dance while the
Cougar Is being crushed tomorrow.
The men’s gymnasium has been In
gaged and a jitney a whirl will be
charged to defray the expenses of the
news reports on the game and the
music, the reports to be read as re
According to all predictions, the
Cougars are to go sliding down to
ward the oblivion of defeat to the
strains of Harry Mayer’s orchestra.
This band of syncopaters has the
name of being much more musical
than their music loving brother,
Nero. There are many, at any rate,
who would rather dance to th,eir
music than to Nero’s.
Special couriers will bring the
returns of the Pullman contest to
the gym, where they will be given
out Immediately to the dancers. The
noise which ensues after the reading
of each report Is expected to rival
in volume the clamor of the Bomans,
whose homes furnished the light for
Nero as he played. Dancing wll
start at 2:30 and continue until
either the Cougars or the dancers
are cnuhed and trodden upon. It
is slated to last until 6:30. Long
dances with numerous encores are
promised for the insignificant nickle
per dance.
M. M. McLean, Sophomore in
Geology, Head of New
The Technical society of tho Univer
sity of Oregon was organized Wednes
day ovening at a meeting of students
in tho various technical science courses
of the University. M. M. McLean, a
sophomore, majoring in geology, was
elected president, and A. R. Loomis, a
sophomore in physics, was made secre
Dr. E. T. Hodge, instructor in the
geology department, was the speaker of
the evening addressing the ^meeting
regarding the engineers profession.
“The common conception of an en
gineer,” said Dr. Hodge, “is that he is
a creator. That is true. But the
engineer is more than that; he is an
inventor, and he must bo a man of
action in order to convey his ideas.
The creative work of the engineer is
only the result of the mind that made
the work possible.”
Engineers Labor Savers
Lajror-saving, said the speaker, is
the purpose of the engineer profession;
yet creating things that require a mini
mum amount of labor will not, in time,
eliminate the engineer.
“The world is power short,” as
serted Dr. Hodge, “and is calling to
engineers. There is the problem of
harnessing the power of waterfalls and
rivers without encroaching upon their
other assets. The harbors of our large
Eastern shipping centers are, with the
exception of large steamers that come
and go, comparatively little advanced
over what they were when early set
tlers, ships first touched our shore.
The development ot^ these cities und
harbors, and ridding China of the an
nual flooding of the Yangtse and
Hoang-Ho rivers and consequential
famine, is the stupendous problem of
the future engineers.”
Pestilence Fought In Tropics
Dr. Hodge spoke briefly on tho
creative work of the engineer in com
bating pestilential diseases, citing the
plague-infested Ameriean tropies as
examples where engineering has re
duced disease to only a shadow of its
former rage.
Touching upon what an engineer
should know about business, the speak
er said they must possess business
ability in order to be successful.
“The engineer,” said Dr. Hodge,
“will have to create work for him
self. He will have to explain in a con
vincirijf manner to those who let out
work that there is a better way ol
doing the job whenever it is so.”
Hot Too Much Specializing
Tn closing Dr. Hodge urged the mem
hers of the society not to lay too mucl
stress on specialization.
B. F. Irvine Pleads Limitations,
Use-of Public Opinion to
Irtfluence Delegates
America to Take Stand, Not
for Self, But for Peace and
Glory of World
Frank Irvine, editor of the Oregon
Journal, at the assembly in Villard
yesterday made an eloquent plea in be
half of the limitation of armaments
aud the use of public opinion to the
fullest extent in influencing the dele
gates at the coming disarmament con
ference to meet in Washington, Novem
ber 11.
Mr. Irvine in speaking of the con
ference emphasizod the horrors of the
past war and the still greater horrors
of a possible next war. “The failure
of the conference to accomplish., its
task is a disaster of which we must
not allow ourselves to think for even
a minute,’’ the speaker deolarod. “The
world is bankrupt. Taxes are used
not for education but for armament.
We are in a race for armament now,
just as we predicted. We know what
the last war was; we know what the
next war will be."
Statesmen, said Mr. Irvine, would
not do what is expected of them un
less they are forced to do so by the
| power of public opinion. We know
what problem will face the conference;
France has already declared her stand,
for she refused to sign the Versailles
treaty until Grofit Britain and the
United States guaranteed her a pro
tective treaty against a possible fu
ture militarist Germany. Great Brit
ain would have come to the conference
with aims differing from those of the
United States for Great Britain would
havo demanded the freedom of the
seas; the seas must be open or Great
Britain would not be ablo to feed hdr
immense population for more than two
weeks, with lier own resources.
“Over in Asiu, arises the question
of Japan, a tiny island kingdom de
manding room for its people to live.
Japan at present is engaged in a peace
ful conquest of Asia, whore she will
be able to do much for people less en
lightened than themselves.
But America, thank God, will be
there seeking nothing for herself, but
only tho. peace and glory of the world,
said Mr. Irvine. Two conferences fiave
been called since 1895 to attempt the
establishment of World peace, and
both have contented themselves with
discussing rulings by which the next
war is to be conducted."
“The next war will be a war to kill
—to kill all of tho people, said the
speaker. In Belgium in the early days
of tho war, the chlorine gas was used,
the mustard gas followed, and at the
; close of the war the terrible Lewisite
' gas was invented by an American. Mr.
Irvine emphasized the fact that in the
next war, which will certainly come if
tho disarmament fails to achieve its
goal, there will be no noncombatants;
it will be a war affecting all; men,
women and children.
“Thank God,” said the speaker, ad
dressing the students,” for you young
people of the land, you young people
of the universities, who are going to
do your own thinking; for it is you who
will lead tho country into green pas
tures and beside still waters.”
