“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. Wanna McKinney, Florence
Skinner, Floyd Maxwell, Claire Beale,
John Strachan, Arne Rae, Earle Voor
hies, Arnold Anderson, and Raymond

Every member of Emerald meet
at shack at 5 tonight for meeting.
This is important as a number of
vital matters are to be discussed.
Obie Will Exercise Cheer Crew
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.
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

do not report as requested will be dealt
with as the military department sees
fit. It is important that every one is
present so that the battalion will make

cation for tho young army officer is
proving to be a strong Influence in

COW, 7 TO 7
Lemon-Yellow Upsets Dope;
Oregon’s Score Made
in Last Quarter
One Touchdown not Allowed;
Contest Brilliant and
Cleanly Played
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

Cougars by the exports, the Lemon

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.

According to those who saw the
game it was brilliantly played and ex
celled the California-Cougar battle of

dean game and only three penalties

brilliant man on the field. He
was ably seconded by Ooorge King

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.
