Oregon Daily Emerald ~ UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10. 1923 ~ ~ NUMBErI VOLUME XXV SLOGAN CONTEST OPEN TO EVERYONE Haddon Rockhey Outlines Plans for Obtaining Snappy Motto for Homecoming PRIZE OF $5 IS OFFERED No Discrimination Shown in Giving Award, says Director; Grandstand Seats Offered The honor of being the author of the 1923 homecoming slogan, which will appear on all advertising used for the big occasion, as well as being the winner of the prize of the two best reserved seats in the grandstand. at the homecoming game, is the induce ment offered to the alumnus, faculty member, or student, who submits the successful slogan this year, according to the announcement made late yester day by Hadden Bockhey, Homecoming chairman. The contest will open Mon day, October 14, and will close on No vember 1. The slogan should be short, snappy, and to the point, Bockhey stated, but must portray the spirit of Homecom ing in a greeting to the old grads and in the expression of the usual anticipa tion of O. A. C.’s defeat. Freshman 1922 Winner Last year Steele Winterer, a fresh man in th University, won the honor with the slogan, “Home again, Fight again, Win again.’’ In 1921 Prof. James Gilbert submitted the winning slogan, “Home to meet ’em, Back to beat ’em.’’ The fact that one year a faculty member won, and the next year it was a freshman, proves how fairly submitted slogans are judged, declared the Homecoming chairman. The slogan will appear on letters sent out to alumni in all parts of the globe, on the special Homecoming en velopes used by the student body for all correspondence at that time, as well as on all posters advertising the event. The option of whether the winner would tal& the two reserved tickets or the value of the tickets, which is $5, was deemed advisable from the student point of view, Bockhey added, inasmuch as a student would be ad mitted to the game on his student body ticket, and he would perhaps prefer the money. Significant Wording Sought No rhyme is necessary in the slo gan, nor is there a definite limit to the number of words to be used, but the lines which express the greatest amount of meaning in as few words as possible has the bigger chance of being vic torious, explained the chairman. Further specifications, he continued, were that the expression should be written in a legible manner on a blank sheet of paper, put in a sealed envelope, and either mailed or brought to the office of Miss Grace Edgington, alumni secretary, located in the Gift Head quarters, on or before November 1. Judges who will pick the winning slogan include Mary Watson Barnes, Karl Onthank, Grace Edgington, and Paul Patterson. CORRECTIONS ARE MADE Due to mechanical troubles in the Em erald print shop, an error was made in the pledging notices of Robert Laird McCormack and Wilber Hoar. The no tices should have read: Phi Kappa Psi announces the pledg ing of Robert Laird McCormack, of Ta coma, Washington. Phi Sigma Pi announces the pledging of Wilber Hoar, of Forest Grove. Cheers of Women to Inspire Heroes of Gridiron Today And the queen of love and beauty shouts: “Fight, darn you, fight!” Today is ladies day at Hayward field; while the giants of the gridiron are toiling, while the warriors of the pool hall are clicking the ivories, the women o4 the university will be demonstrating their powers with the “wow-wows.” Co-eds here have previously confined their foatball enthusiasm to a sort of mild beating of dainty palms at the conclusion of the husky, deep throated oskies. Today the order is changd; the women will risk their much adver tised complexions and take charge of the big, lonesome grandstand. They are to be the shouting spirits that drive the teams to dogged action. The girls’ shouting will consist of unre strained howls of a£roval and joy— just as girls shout when they have seen a mouse, or something. This is the first time that Oregon women have been given an exclusive rally. It is the only event recorded, outside of April Frolic, at which the girls are given an opportunity to yell to their hearts’ content. There was a rally for men a few days ago, but owing to the fact that rain made golf socks impractical many were forced to remain in sheltered spots. The men will probably be given another chance soon, providing they are not afraid of getting their imported oxfords all covered with that nasty mud. Turn out girls and show the cake eaters, lungs are for other purposes than inhaling cigarettes. TWO NEW MEMBERS FILL COUNCIL SEATS Oregon Knight and Prominent Girl Athlete Chosen Henry Karpenstein was last night appointed senior man on the student council, and Henryetta Lawrence senior woman, according to Claude Eobinson, student body president who made the appointments. The vacancy in the position of senior man on the Student Council was cre ated last spring when Hal Chapman who held that position was appointed on the Executive council to fill the vacancy left by Claude Robinson, who hud resigned to run for student body president. Mr. Karpenstein has been very active on the campus. He was an Oregon night, a member of the Y. M. C. A. cabinet for two years, and at present is holding the position of president of that organization as well as being a member of the Men’s Glee Club. Hnryetta Lawrence has also been! very well known as a member of the Emerald staff, prominent in women’s athletics, on numerous committees, and a member of Kwama. She heads Pan Hellenic this year and is the vice president of the Senior class. When Gladys Wright, elected last spring as senior woman on the Student council failed to return to school this year, the appointment became necssary. The Student Council acts as an in termediary between faculty and stu dents and as a board of appeal before which any student directly connected with the University may place ques tions of student welfare. Representa tives from every class with the ex ception of the freshman are elected to this council every spring. FRESHMEN An important meeting of all fresh men is to be held in the men’s gym nasium, Wednesday evening, at 7 o’clock. Jack Meyers will talk con cerning the coming frosh-sophmore mix. Scribes to Have Annual Mix on Saturday Night The “provrbiul J,” that significant letter of those much-touted words, journalist, jamboree, jazz, jinx and jollity, is to hold sway for all majors in the school of journalism on the com ing Saturday night. The journalism jamboree, the funtime and joytime of all would-be, hard-working, newspaper hounds, is to held this very week in the old haunt, the men’s gymnasium, and will be replete with all its thrills and good liberal comedy. This is to be the annual get-acquainted party for all majors in journalism as well as to serve as an outlet for the exuberance which has been stored away by the scribes during the sum mer months. The members of Theta Sigma Phi and Sigma Delta Chi, professional journalism fraternities for women and men respectively, are making the plans for the jamboree. The same rules as heretofore will be in force Saturday night, say those in charge. Those flaunting white collars or other dress regalia before the multitude will be duly persecuted, fined, incarcerated, or otherwise brought under the solemn judgment of the judicial. The wearing of old clothes is ordered by the powers that-be. If they be not either old or odd, they stand the risk of being parted from their wearers. There are to be no dates for this affair. The rule in this regard will be as last year. All men and all women will be their own escorts to the gym nasium. They will have to give the countersign at the door, which will be in the form of a thin dime, and then they will be admitted without question or query to the bloody scene. Any journalism student who does not either appear or account for himself will be regarded in the light of a slacker, according to those who are re sponsible for the success of the party. (Continued on page three) INTENSE SCHEDULE IN DEBATE SHAPED Do-nut Work Headed by Paul Patterson for 1923; all Con tests Must be Over Nov. 23 FIJI CUP IS PERMANENT Zeta Kappa Psi Will Give Trophy to Winning Girl’s Team; all Will Compete Do-nut debate plans will be well worked out by next week, and every thing set for an intense schedule of work, according to Paul Patterson, who heads do-nut work this year. Next Wednesday, October 17, at 5 p. m., there will be a meeting at which one member from each men’s organization wishing to enter teams in the campus debates, will '.be present to discuss plans for the do-nut contests and to decide on a question. The meeting will be held in the Sociology building. On October 19, the women’s organiza tions will have a similar meeting. This year all do-nut debates must be over by Homecoming, November 23. The idea of giving so short a time for preparation, Patterson . said, was to have the contests out of the way so that the Homecoming festivities would not cut in, on the work, and it is also hoped tfhat a more concentrated ef fort will be made by those participating The final debate between the winners in the women’s and men’s leagues will be staged the first part of December. New Shield Offered A new shield will be offered this year to the winning men’s organization as the one offered last year has become the permanent property of Phi Gamma Delta, as a result of its win ning it in three consecutive years. The trophy will be awarded on the same basis as the old one. Any organization coming into permanent possession of it must win it three successive times. Any house winning it will be allowed to keep it one year, placing the names of the debaters participating on the shield. In the Women’s league, the winning organization receives a silver cup from Zeta Kappa Psi, women’s national de bating society. Susan Campbell hall last year won the trophy. In the final campus championship contest, a silver cup offered by Tau Kappa Alpha, men’s national forensic society, is given to the winning team. Phi Gam ma Delta also won this tropy last year. Lively Questions Wished Every effort is being made by for ensic leaders this year, to get as lively and up-to-date questions as possible for the do-nut debates. Last year such issues as light wines and beei£, and the cancellation of allied war debts, were discussed in the do-nut and varsity de bates, and as a result much interest and enthusiasm was displayed by the campus. It is the aim of the coaches to secure equally interesting ques tions this year. Debate work is this year under the supervision of the written and spoken English department, headed by Prof. C. D. Thorpe, who has acted as debate coach the last three years. H. E. Rosson has come to the University this year as head debate coach, while Paul Patterson is managing the do-nut con tests. Elam Amstutz is forensic man ager this year. FOOTBALL CLASS ENROLLS Coach Earl Starts New Venture at Ore gon for Fireside Athletes Coach Virgil Earl’s football school is now enrolling, and while the turnout has been light, it is anticipated that many more will report within the next few days. This school is a new venture at Oregon, but it has been tried success fully at other coast schools. According to Mr. Earl, the school will deal chiefly with fundamentals and should attract many fireside athletes who might become football players with the proper training. It is said that Brick Muller, of California, did not realize that he had foot ball possibil ities until one night he chanced to pick up a stray pigskin that caromed off some varsity shin, and to his surprise heaved it about 75 yards. We may have many Brick Mullers at Ore gon and now that the football season and football interest are here again, it is hoped that many will take advantage of this course. Those embryo football stars who wish to enroll in this very valuable course will find Mr. Earl upstairs in the old gym any time in the afternoon. PLEDGING ANNOUNCEMENT Phi Sigma Pi announces the pledging of Kenneth Nogle, of Eugene. COMMITTEE AFTER Record of Expenses Desired for Use of Future Officers of Living Groups on Campus STATEMENTS TO BE FILED New Organizations May Get Aid in Purchase of Property; Keen Interest Expressed The student living committee, under the chairmanship of Dean H. Walker, student adviser, and director of loans, for the University, is outlining a plan which it believes will be of value to living organizations on the campus in helping them to solve some of tljeir problems of operation and maintenance. The thing in which the administra tion is most interested, Mr. Walker said, is the organization and financing of new groups on the campus as a solution of the living problem here. • Cooperation Is Asked “We want to accumulate informa tion and experience which will prove of real value to the organized groups which now exist and new ones which may develop,’’ he said. “We are ask ing the cooperation of the headd of houses in trying to determine the best and most economical way for a house to operate.” Because the student personnel of the University is constantly shifing, Mr. Walker and his committee believe that if new officers in living organizations could have at their command a con siderable body of reliable information on actual operating costs, the organiza tions would be benefited. For that reason he is planning to have each house favoring the idea file with him each month an actual state ment of expenses for the month, such information to be entirely confiden tial. Comparative tables will be drawn up from these statements which will let persons in organizations know how their house is comparing with others per house, per person and per item. In this way houses will be able to determine whether they are operating at a cost above or below average, whether thiey are buying wisely, and if not, will show in what respects there may be improvements. Auditing of Books Desired, Houses will be encouraged to use some regular system of handling their books, and in cases where it is not already done, it will be suggested that the books be audited by some one other than the person handling them, merely for the protection of the officer and because it is the businesslike thing to do. Houses will be asked to be very careful about insurence, for, says Mr. Walker, while most houses carry insurance, in some cases it has been found that the policies have expired without the knowledge of persons in the house. Another problem that the committee is hoping to solve is just what is the most economical sized group to be operated. Some people believe 35, others 27, and so on, Mr. Walker said. An effort will be made to determine correctly what is really the best num ber for a group to include in its mem bership. Perhaps the biggest way in which the committee hopes to aid organiza tions will be in assisting them in the purchase of property and building pro grams. Especially will new groups without alumni or financial backing be aided in their organization. The whole plan is designed for the ultimate benefit of living groups, and so far heads of houses interviewed have ex pressed a keen interest in the ideas and are very favorable to them, Mr. Walker stated. TENNIS TRY-OUTS TODAY Many Prospects Entered In Matches to be Played on Hew Courts Budolph Fahl, who has charge of var sity and frosh tennis contests for this year, has announced that try-outs for the fail tennis teams will begin on Wednesday afternoon at four o’clock. The matches this year will take place on the new courts on Emerald street. Those who have signed for the try outs so far are: E. V. Slattery, A. H. Gamboa, T. Graham, E. N. Calef, “Skip” Brooks, George Mead, Barney McPhillips, David Husted, F. A. Wil son, Boy Okerberg, Lynch Shoulter, J. Brill, Bobert L. McCormick, and F. T. Lau. Most of the contestants are new prospects, and Fahl is looking forward to some interesting matches. Oppon ents for the contests will be designated on a list to be poshed on the bulletin board in the men’s gymnasium. Instructor, Lost, Starts to Teach Class of Another A lost student is not an unusual thing. He quite often gets into the wrong class and after sitting down and making himself comfortable, sud denly realizes that he is not where he ought to be at all. Instructors, though, usually know where they belong. However, yesterday morning a pro fessor came into the 8 o ’clock French class, removed her coat and fur and seated herself at the desk. Lois Gray, instructor in Romance languages, en tered the room and looked in surprise at her occupied chair. “Pardon me, but you must be mis taken, this is my class.’’ “No, I'm sorry but you are wrong. I teach in here every morning.” “But this is where I’ve been teach ing .1” , A schedule book was consulted and arguments settled when the visiting instructor found that her room and class were just across the hall. six newIenelected TO SIGMA DELTA CHI Neophytes will Edit Annual Society Publication The annual fall election of Sigma Delta Chi took place yesterday noon at the Anchorage. Six men were elected to the fraternity; Donald Wood ward, managing editor of the Emerald and associate editor of the 1922-23 Oregana, Taylor Huston, associate edi tor of the 1923-24 Oregana and daily news editor of the Emerald, “Bill'” Akers, varsity sport writer, Ben Max well, University student body corres pondent and historian of the Emerald, Leo Munly, business manager of tho Emerald, and Robert Lane, special writer of the Sunday Emerald and member of Cross Roads.

Sigma Delta Chi was founded in De Pauw University in 1909 and has won recogni tion from newspaper workers in all parts of the country. There are now 36 chapters in the United States and the Quill, the official publication of tho fraternity, in a classification of the different chapters, has placed Ore gon in the leading group. Many prom inent newspaper men in the Northwest are honorary members of the local chapter. Warren Harding was a member of the fraternity. Part of the pre-initiation of the neo phytes is to do the 1 ‘ dirty work ’ ’ for the journalism jamboree, next Satur day night. Another phase of the pre initiation will be the editing of the annual Sigma Delta Chi publication, which will appear at a later date. The new pledges wear as their pledge pin the traditional linotype slug set with the name of the fraternity. UNIVERSITY STUDENT HOLDS UNUSUAL HONOR Alta Chenoweth Appointed Guide for Travelers Stranded In Maze of San Francisco Alta Chenoweth, sophomore in the zoology department last year, is the youngest person in the United States employed by the Travelers Aid Society for the responsible position of meeting travelers, answering questions and as sisting stranded persons. She is, at present, in San Francisco at the Ferry building. Miss Chenowetli succeeded in con vincing the officials of the organization of her ability to handle the work, de spite the fact that it is customary to employ only persons more than thirty years of age. She began her work this summer and in a short time re ceived two advancement^. In a lettej to Mrs. A. E. Caswell, wife of Prof. Caswell of the pre-engineer ing department, she described her work with the first boatload of Japanese ref ugees as being particulary fascinating. STUDENTS ARE GUESTS University Day Held by Eugene Rotary * Club at Meeting Yesterday was University day at the Eugene Rotary club. About a dozen students were guests of the Rotarians and each was introduced to the gather ing by his host. Dr. John Landsbury, dean of the school of music, welcomed the Univer sity men and Arthur Rudd, editor of the Emerald, responded. Dr. J. M. Walters of the First M. E. Church and vice-president of the Eu gene Rotary club gave a farewell word to his brother members. John Stark Evans of the school of music had charge of the music, which was feat ured by two solos by “Doc" Furry. FROSH MATERIAL BATED BEST YET Freshman Football Prospects Give Evidence of Greatest Year in Team’s History VARSITY SYSTEM COACHED Both Earl and Williams Former Bezdek Men; Rinehart Had Training-. Under Huntington Tho fnefthman football squad is bo ginning to take shape under the tute lage of coaches Williams, Binehart and Earl. Better than four yearling teams have survived the ordoal of per-season drill and are hard at it out on the practice field south of Hayward. Some of the youngsters have dropped out, but Williams still has a husky gang from which to make his selections. Without doubt this is the biggest year in first year football and the material on hand is better than ever, so that, Williams is going to have a job weeding out the squad. The youngsters have a coaching staff schooled in the Bezdek system and they will be able to go up to the varsity ranks with a good idea of varsity foot ball. Williams and Earl both saw ser vice under Bezdek before the war and were on the same service team in France while Binehart is a pupil of Huntington’s eleven of a couple of sea sons back. Team in Formation As yet the team is in a formative state, the coaches giving all the men a chance to do their stuff. There are several heavy candidates out for line positions and the fight for the niches is going to be long and hard. The talent for the backfield and wings looks good and the team, when picked should boast a fairly good weight average. The scrimmage that Baz has been putting the youngsters through, has brought out several promising candi dates for berths, on the team, which opens against the Chemawa Indians, October . 20, on Hayward field. Agee at half, is going strong in the back field. The linemen seem unable to stop him. Chappie King Out Chappie King is out for a time with a cold, but hopes to return and fight for a backfield job soon. Harrison, Officer and Mimnaugh are all good looking candidates for Williams’ scor ing machine. Mimnaugh has been do ing considerable kicking. He gets his boots away fast and for a good dis tance average. Brooks, Dills and Adolph show prom ise on the flanks, but there are several others who should be heard from before the season is far advanced. It will be a week or more before the coaches have any definite idea on the men and the youngsters are battling harder every night in order to escape the shears when the pruning campaign starts. OREGONIA TO RESUME ACTIVITIES FOR YEAR Faculty Social Club Will Hold First Meeting Friday Night; Commit tee Arranging Programs The Oregonia, the only faculty social organization on the campus, will begin its second year on the Oregon cainpus with the meeting called for Friday even ing, October 12. The second Friday in each month will be reserved for the fac ulty’s playtime. The new committee in charge has in teresting features under consideration which it expects to publish soon. Among them is the possibility of inviting the Assembly club, a formal dancing society of Eugene, to participate at some date during the coming year. The committee in charge urges that members of the faculty keep the second Friday in each month free from other engagements. The Woman’s building has been engaged for the use of the organization during the calendar year for this date. Further information may be obtained by calling Professor F. S. Dunn. DEAN STRAUB HAS MINOR OPERATION PERFORMED Dean John Straub underwent a minor ((operation yesterday morn ing as the prelliulnary step to the main operation which will be per formed in about ten days, if his condition proves to be sufficient ly good, according to word received on the campns last evening... He came through the operation yes terday very well and everything appeared all right, said the report.
