(Alumni, Seniors and Juniors in Woman’s building.) (Sophomores and Frosh in Armory) “Every student get an alumnus.” For the next two weeks this will be the campus slogan for Homecoming. “The Homecoming committee is work ing hard, and has plans well in hand,” according to Norton Winnard, chair man. “but if Homecoming is to be a complete success, every student must <1q bis share.” The success of Homecoming will be judged by the number of alumni back on the campus. Each one will add t<l the glory of the week-end. The ftlumni secretary and all organizations have Sent letters to all alumni. It is now up to every student, Winnard says, to send follow-up letters of a more per sonal and appealing nature. It has been suggested that students incorpor ate the Homecoming program in their letters. Tell about the bon-fire which, according to the frosh, is going to be the “biggest and best yet,” Tell about the luncheon, the Order of the “O” parade, the dance and most of all tell them that Oregon fight still lives, and that a few farmers from down the ' valley will go home on the small end '•of the score after the game Saturday. Alumni Meeting a Succeed The Alumni meeting in Portland Sat urday proved to be a huge soeeeee, according to Jack Benefiel, graduate manager, who attended and told about Homecoming plane. More than 200 alumni from all classes from ’06 down to ’21 were present. Robert Kuyken dall, president of the Portland alumni, presided. A quartette from the Uni versity sang several songs. Professor .James H. Gilbert also attended the meeting and gave a short pep talk. “If you are expecting a funeral in Eu gene Saturday the 19th, you are sure to be disappointed,” he said. “As alumni, you owe it to yourselves and the University to be back Homecoming, and renew old acquaintances, and re freshen your college days.” Virtually all alumni in attendance at the meet ing signified their intention to be “Home to meet ’em, Back to beat ’em” on the 18th and 19th. Paper Contains Satire Replete with reminiscences of grad uates and trenchant satire about the “Benton County Agricultural College,” cPhe Winnagen was sent to 3500 former .students of the University last week end. The Winnegan is a small paper published annually by the editing class in the interests of Homecoming. John Dierdorff was the editor this year, and Alexander Brown managing editor. The “scandal mongers” who assisted Dierdorff were Allan Carncross, Ruth Austin, Ep Hoyt, Wilford Allen, Mada lene Logan, Velma Rupert, Ernest Havc-ox.

NOISE CARNIVAL PLANNED Obie Will Exercise Cheer Crew ********* HOMECOMING PEP IS GOAL The only Rooters’ Practice this week will be Thursday evening at 4:30 on Hayward field, announced Yell King Oberteuffer yesterday. The yell staff has prepared a stunt for the game and it is very important that it be practiced before the game. The nature of the stunt is a surprise. “We’ll beat O. A. C. in the Held and we’ll beat them in the bleachers, predicted Obie, who wants the entire “Thundering Thousand” to appear on time Thursday afternoon. This is the only day this week that open practice will be held. The good ship U. of 0. goes in to drvdoek this week for vocal repairs. When she again takes to her element ok the evening of November 18 Ad miral Oberteuffer promises that every pep-instilling gun is going to be ef ficiently manned by a crew from the Thundering Thousand. “Obie’s” cap tains, who will assist in maneuvering the great Homecoming rally, are Caro lyn Cannon and “Ole” Larson. Homecoming eve is to be one wild termination of a perfect classless day. And there is going to be a rally Fri day evening which will be tremendous in its scope, according to the 'plans of the rally committee. The increased number of students and the great num ber of retiring grads will be homo genized into a supereffieient machine known as a pep instiller. The Homecoming parade is booked for Friday night—the eve of the big day. Jack Myers is chairman of the committee which will have charge of this parade. His assistants are Jim King, Dick Sundeleaf, Dan Welch and Lyle Palmer. This committee is al ready functioning, and according to ad vanced dope, the strange pageant which will wind its sinuous way toward the center of the city, as many colored lights throw marchers into grotesque relief, is going to be a wonderful spec tacle. Many things novel in the line of stunts will feature the parade. After the parade comes the mass meeting on Kincaid field. As tho flames from the frosh conflagration swirl toward the stars—or clouds—the football team and coaches will be as sembled on a special platform. Old timers and alumni will address the crowd. Oberteuffer has stated that the rally committee is reserving a sur prise for the student body on Friday evening. Ole Larson is chairman of the after-parade program. No serpentine will be staged between halves of the big game Saturday, Nov ember 19, in accordance with the wishes of the athletic department. The Yell staff has planned and will work out a new and novel stunt to take the place of the customary serpentine. Five hundred members of the Thundering Thousand are to take part in this stunt. * •»' - “We’ve got to get going at once,” said “Obie” in an interview yesterday. “Oregon spilled the dope at Pullman and we should all be rarin ’ to go. We can’t let O. A. C. overshadow us in yelling at the game. While the team is walloping the Aggies on the field we will be giving them a vocal walloping in the grandstands.” Since the Aggies are booked to flock ! down from the north 3,000 strong for the great football classic, Oberteuffer and his assistants realize that the Ore gon rooting must be systemized and made efficient. To attain the desired vocal proficiency several yell practices will be held between now and Novem ber 19. The Thundering Thousand are urgently requested by “Obie” to heed his summons and cooperate with nim in organizing the rooting. CONFERENCE YIELDS IDEAS BARTHOLOMEW BACK FROM MEETING OF STUDENT HEADS Next Sessions to be Held in Corvallis May 14; Many Subjects Taken Up and Discussed “I have returned with many new ideas from the conference of student body presidents* held last week end at the University of 'Washington. Many of them will be felt soon by the stu dent body, but for certain reasons I cannot give some of them at this time,” said Lyle Bartholomew, when ques tioned on the work done at the con ference. The ideas which Bartholomew favors are: The granting of a student body tax on summer students; A sen ior council for class discipline; That the activity Organization be made a national; Assessing special students with a class tai; One honor organiza tion in each department of a strictly departmental organization. The Pacific Association of Student Body Presidents held their convention in conjunction with the Pacific Inter collegiate Press Association Thursday, Friday, and Saturday November 3, 4, and 5 at the University of Washington. This is the first time both organiza tions have met in conjunction. Thir teen schools were represented and 11 student body presidents were present. Due to the fact that the constitution was made over, Lyle Barholomew of Oregon remains president of the asso ciation and all old officers will keep their positions. On May 14 they will meet at Corvallis where the new offi cers will be installed,the old ones con ducting the meeting. At that time Bartholomew will en deavor to bring all student body presi dents to the campus for at least half a day. It is also hoped to assemble all student body presidents in the United States in 1925 at Portland, provided the fair is held. The following five resolutions were adopted at Seattle: Favoring the honor system in coast universities. The system is proving satisfactory at Wash ington and California, and is being worked on at Idaho and O. A. C.; Opposing financial drives on the cam pus without the sanction of the student body; Favoring weekly assemblies to promote school spirit; That all univer , sities look well upon honor organiza I tions, and that they be of limited num | her; Expansion of membership. It is ; also planned to expand the member j ship, including the University of Brit : ish Columbia and other northern insti tutions. The members on this com i mittee are: Dobins, W. S. C.; Richlev Willamette; Rich, McMinnville. A resolution was passed thanking thi R.O.T.C. UNIT WILL PARADE!

VMISITt BATTLES WAT TO TIE Will COW, 7 TO 7 Lemon-Yellow Upsets Dope; Oregon’s Score Made in Last Quarter CHAPMAN STARS IN GAME One Touchdown not Allowed; Contest Brilliant and Cleanly Played By EP HOYT With the score 7-0 against them in the fourth quarter of the game with Washington State College, played Sat urday on Rogors field, the fighting varsity came up from behind, and, tak ing the ball from the Staters in mid field on downs began a march of lino bucks, end runs and forward passes that resulted in Chapman’s plunging over for a touchdown. Leslie kicked goal a minute later and the final score was, Oregou 7, Washington State 7. In the game with the Cougars the varsity was outdoped but they were not outplayed or outfought. Not even conceded a chance against the speedy Cougars by the exports, the Lemon Yellow came back strong and gave wostern football fans the surprise of thoir lives by playing the brilliant Pull man machine off their feet and turning in a tie score whore all the “wise ones” predicted they would bo lucky if they hold Gus Welch’s Staters to a three-touchdown lead. One Score Disallowed It was just a stroke of fate that prevented the varsity from winning the game by actual count. Late in the fourth quarter, King, left half, re covered Zaopfol’s fumble and raced across the Cougar line. The touchdown was disqualified, however, as an Ore gon man was called for tripping Mike Moran, who was making a desperate offort to pick King off from behind. A little later the varsity took the ball in midfield and not to be denied, marched straight through the Cougar defense, on an offensive that resulted in a touchdown. A brilliant assort ment of plays were used, on the march to the goal, line bucks mixed with forward passes and yardage was made practically every time Hal Chapman called the play. Clean, Brilliant Came According to those who saw the game it was brilliantly played and ex celled the California-Cougar battle of a week earlier. It was an exceptionaly dean game and only three penalties were called during the hour’s play, two for Washington State and one for Oregon. The Cougars secured their points in the second quarter with Big Mike Moran carrying the ball over the Ore gon line. Skadan, quarter on the 25 yard line, passed to Jcnne, who got to the Lemon-Yellow’s 3-yard marker be fore ho fell, where Mike Moran shoved it over in two attempts, SJcadan kick ing goal. Chapman Shines at Quarter Chapman, at quarter played a bril liant game for Oregon and was char acterized in press reports as the most brilliant man on the field. He was ably seconded by Ooorge King veteran back. “Hunk” Latham play ing his first game at fullback, full filled Huntington’s confidence in his ability and came through like a vete ran, being especially apt at pulling the passes out of the air. “Dutch” Oram looked good at half while he was in tho lineup, and Ward Johnson, who relieved him, tore through the Cougar line repeatedly for yardage. The varsity line showed up to good advantage during most of the game and except for a little while in the (Continued on page four) Noted Baritone to Be Heard in Villard Saturday Night Erwvr.
