    Oregon Daily Emerald
Haddon Rockhey Outlines
Plans for Obtaining Snappy
Motto for Homecoming
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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.

Do-nut Work Headed by Paul
Patterson for 1923; all Con
tests Must be Over Nov. 23
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
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.
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.
Phi Sigma Pi announces the pledging
of Kenneth Nogle, of Eugene.
Record of Expenses Desired for
Use of Future Officers of
Living Groups on Campus
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
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.
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.

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

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

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

Freshman Football Prospects
Give Evidence of Greatest
Year in Team’s History
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
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
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.
