The Sunday Emerald
Limericks are always enjoyable, and
doubly so if we know the persons about
whom they are written. As there are
all kinds of people, so there are all
sorts of limericks. There are two kinds
of limericks, also, as to Tythm;
Most of the following are out of rythm.
If you don’t like what I say about you
in this colyum, you can lump it,
because if you come over to the “Shack”
the office boy will tell j'ou I am in con
ference, or Mexico, or China, or any
place which is out of your reach. If
you believe him you are a fool.

SETS $200,000;
Late Frank Doernbecher of
Portland Provides For
Gift in Will
Need for New Library Stressed
at Regent’s Meeting
by President
The gift of $200,000 for use by the
University of Oregon school of medi
cine in the construction of a general
hospital for children on the campus at
Portland, was announced here yester
day, following a meeting of the Uni
versity board of regents. The gift
was made by Ada Doernbecher of
Portland and Edward M. Doernbecher
of Seattle, heirs of the late Frank
Doernbecher, former head of the Doern
becher Manufacturing Co. of Portland,
a pioneer furniture manufacturing con
Mr. Doernbecher requested in his
will that the sum of $200,000 should
be given to some important institution
or cause, and empowered his heirs,
jyho are also the executors and trustees
of his estate, to select the beneficiary.
The University of Oregon school of
medicine was chosen because of its
record of usefulness in the state.
Regents Accept Gift
The board of regents, acting on the
recommendation of President P. L.
Campbell, accepted the gift yesterday.
The sum will be used both to con
struct and equip the hospital, which
will be known as the Doernbecher
Memorial hospital for children. The
institution, which will be located on
Marquam hill, where the other medical
school structures stand, will provide
for the most scientific and modern care
of patients. In the admission of pati
ents, preference will toe given to resi
dents of Oregon.
The new hospital will afford facili
ties for the instruction of medical stu
dents, and will also contribute, through
research and study, to the general
knowledge of the prevention and care
of diseases of children. Further terms
of the gift provide that children of
indigent parents shall be admitted
free of charge and shall pay according
to the financial ability of their parents
and the judgment of the hospital man
Expected to Aid Children
It is predicted that the new hospital
will encourage the various counties of
Oregon to further utilize the crippled
children’s law. These children will
find an institution giving especial at
tention to their needs.
“Nothing has been more needed in
the northwest than a children’s hospit
al,” said Prsident P. L. Campbell in ac
cepting the gift. “This splendid mem
orial will not only contribute to the
cure of children in its care but will
provide for investigation of how to
prevent their diseases and will add
greatly to the clinical resources of
the medical school. We all owe a
great debt of gratitude to the donors
for their thought of making this mem
orial gift take the form of a children’s

ceived by the school of medicine. Two

Richard’s Game
Far Too Tame
By X.. L.
King Richard, who, with' haughty
ways, ruled England in her former days,
was held a sport of great renown by
men from every farm and town. When
“Old Dick’’ wished to have a time,
he’d summon men from every clime to
turn out with their steed and tent
ar.d hold one grand tournament.
The Knights would come from miles
around and stretch each other on the
ground; with spear, and sword, and
! arrow too, they’d show the best that
| they could do. Till late at night
they’d rip and roar while king and
courtiers cplled for more until at last
when the blood was spilled and half
the Knights were maimed or killed;
the one who fought with most renown
would seek the king to bow him
down and get a fig leaf on liis head—
he was the guy that knocked ’em dead.
I?ut Dick lived many years ago and
his stunts are far too slow; if he
could see the old game now he’d blink
his eyes aird wonder how so much that’s
rough and mean and cruel could get
into one teeming gruel. When frosh
met soph yesterday morn) when shins
were peeled and locks were shorn; they
showed the faint-heart Knights of old
what it means to fight and kick and
The fighter who could win the fray
in the contests of that early day as a
token of the high esteem he got as
leader of the team would sometimes
get from King the leave to wear his
lady’s pleated sleeve. But the frosh
or soph who slays the mob gets much
more for the dirty job than the noblest
Knight that ever rode—on horse, or
mule, or cow, or toad. In fact, if a
sleeve were the only prize for broken
bones and blackened eyes; in view of
the modern trend of style, the effort
would scarcely be worth while.
But all who like the smell of blood,
who chew raw meat as their daily
cud; who want to see a hard hot fight
with victory going to the right;
they’re the ones that bravetl the jinx
to see this hard fought underclass mix.
Annual Affair Given by the President
Held in Alumni Hall
Over four hundred and fifty mem
bers of the faculty and the University
staff were entertained by President
and Mrs. P. L. Campbell last night in
the Women’s building at the annual
President’s reception.
In the receiving line with President
and Mrs. Campbell were Mrs. Murray
Warner, Dean Esterly, Mrs. G. P. Ger
linger, and Miss Magowan.
From Oct. 1, 1922 to Oct. 1, 1923,
the total enrollment in the University
extension division at the Portland,
center without duplicates, was 1827,
according to the records kept by Miss
Mary Kent, secretary. The Portland
center following the campus plans,
has four terms during the% year.
Records of the Portland class for this
fall have n6t been turned in "'yet, as
registration did not start until Oc
tober 1. Last year the fall term reg
istration showed a record of 1413 stu
dents enrolled.
As no further information as to
the oomdition of Dean Straub has
been received since yesterday, it
is believed that, the Dean is still
resting easily and is in no serious
condition. President Campbell is
leaving for Portland today, and
will remain there with the Dean
until about Tuesday.
Sophomores Annex Honors
in Vicious Underclass Mix
By Lyle Jam
Outside of the fact tha% the president
of the sophomore class was carried off
of Kincaid field by a group of modest
friends when he was torn asunder from
many of his important garments during
the flag rush yesterday, there were ■ no
casualties in the “Annual Squareet
Underclass Mix.”
One mustache and two rather imagi
nary ambitions were shaved from the
lips of anxious seniors by Class Barber
Wenona Dyer and her assistant, Kath
erine Pinneo. These young ladies,
equipped with a corn razor, a highly
colored bottle of eczema lotion and a
huge mug of lather, officiated in due
regard to their dignified positions. Miss
Dyer enacted her part splendidly. ■ She
was as talkative as a real barber and
! didn 't squeal a bit when she ruthlessly
removed the pride of the summer vaca
tion from the suffering men.
Bill Hayward, Shy Huntington and
almost a hundred senior cops supervised
the mix and insisted upon absolute
squareness during the entire contest.
There is positively no question in the
minds of all of the judges, that this
was the squarest mix this campus has
.ever witnessed. The victory hung at a
balance until the close of the last event;
for with this counting 25 points and the
score standing 40-20 in favor of the
sophomores, it was anybody’s contest
until the sound of the final gun.
The crowd stood tense and eager.
Co-eds forgot to powder their noses;
cigarettes burned themselves out and
remained forgotten in the mouths of
awed juniors—five minutes of grim bat
tle—the flash of a gun and the mix was
over. The sophs had successfully de
fended their somewhat imaginary flag
from the mad onrush of what the judges
estimated to be about fifty members of
the class of ’27.
The feature of the mi* was the push
ball contest. The game is new on the
Oregon campus and following the play

DEAN Allen Tells
of Old World Art
Geneva, of All Foreign Show-Places, Liked Best
by Head of Journalism School, Who
Is Touring European Countries
Geneva, September 26, 1923.
Dear President Campbell,
Every place we go we like better
than the place before and against all
expectation we have found our climax
in Geneva, It is a wonderful place,
a sparklingly beautiful place and a
very noble city. One of the finest
things we have seen in Europe, we—
the Bates and the Allens— wandered
-into unexpectedly today on the cam
pus of the university, here. It was
the great Monument de la Reformation
and left us with the feeling that the
Twentieth Century might yet hold up
its head with the other ages that have
done fiae things. The great obstinate
reformers—Erasmus, Mlelanc.thon and
the compromisers conspicuously omitt
ed—stood up in gigantic stone — not
marble—against the massive city wall
of the same material, and most strik
ing inscriptions were there in French,
German, English and Latin. And over
it all in immense letters the motto of
the city which through Calvin and his
compeers overthrew ecclesiasticism
and, through J. J. Rousseau, monarchy
—“Post Tenebras Lux”— a motto
lived up to and fulfilled in a way that
shook the world. Along with Calvin,
Beza, Knox, and Farel stood William,
the Prussian Elector, who turned the
scale for the early reformers, Coligny,
Clearest Manifestations of
Peril Found in Italy
All the elements of future wars are
fatalistically active in the present Eu
ropean situation, in the opinion of Dr.
George Rebec, clean of the University of
Oregon graduate school, who returned to
the institution this fall after a year’s
study and observation abroad. Wars
will come, he thinks, unless European
character, aided by the character of the
American people, discovers how to cir
cumvent them.
Dean Rebec was intent while abroad
upon finding the reality rather than the
romance of European life. He spent
five months in Great Britain, five months
in France, more than a month in Italy
and six or seven weeks in Czecho-Slo
There, are two great dangers in Eu
rope, says the University dean. The
first danger is that every European
chancellery is pursuing its own selfish
ends, and the other is the economic sit
“Not only all idealistically inclined
men in Europe, but the plain bulk of the
population of the different countries are
utterly averse to war,” he said. “They
long for reconciliation, international
good understanding and cooperation.
Even the diplomatists and the politicians,
it may be said, would like these good
things if only they did not have to pay
the price for them. The government
of each and every country is holding
what it has and is not inclined to be
benevolent about world agreements.
Each country is willing that the other
fellow intrust his own interests to the
League of Nations or High Court, but
is unwilling itself to do so because of
a fear of being ‘squeezed’ as the final
“We Americans must not indulge our
selves in the belief that we are more
righteous than others. An American
cannot fail to come away from Europe
without a feeling that we missed an op
portunity to do a constructive part such
as we alone could do. Only th© United
States had the prestige and financial
power to work its will as an impartial
arbiter. The finest moral sentiment in
Europe is arrayed behind th© program
of the League of Nations. The best
thought in Europe earnestly supports
the league. Those representing this
feeling are grimly resolved to go on with
out the United States, but tacitly it is
genuinely felt that without us in some
sort of genuinely responsible coopera
tion, the situation is all but insoluble.”
Europe does not know how to find the
way out, Dean Rebec continued. Eu
ropean powers are encumbered with a
thousand years of rivalries, encroach
ments and hatred, which seem fore
doomed to be a source of ware to come
unless some path of reconciliation and
arbitration is found.

Coming as we did from the sessions
of the League of Nations. Every ono
here, including the traveling Ameri
cans, most earnestly wishes well to
the League of Nations and to the
fine men who are trying so hard to
establish it. Dr. Nansen was the
principal speaker today. We passed
Mr. Asquith on the sidewalk, and we
see dozens of widely known people.
The city is extremely interesting,
filled as it is with people of (all races
and nations. The flags of 46 coun
tries flutter from hotel windows where
the delegates have rooms—or 47 if you
count the Stars and Stripes, for some
one is displaying it though the coun
try has no formal part in any of the
activities . French is, of course, the
universal language, though speeches
are repeated in English by the inter
preters, who take down in shorthand
the fluent French of the delegates then
immediately jump to their feet and
repeat it in English (or vice versa)
from their shorthand notes with never
a hesitation and often with consider
able eloquence.
I had quite a conference today with
the head of the information section
of the League, and was given the
privileges of the press gallery. I got
seats in the other balcony for Mrs.
Allen and the Bates. The meetings,
with their bilingual character, are a
great help to improving one’s French,
if the slight amelioration of a French
as bad as mine can be dignified by
such a term as “improvement.”

Costumes From All Parts of
Earth Are Present
The annual journalism jamboree—
that refreshing evening’s entertain
ment when all members of the school
of journalism meet and while away the
hours in ridiculous costume took placo
l last night in the men’s gymnasium.
They were from all nations and climates
on the face of the earth. Heart break
ing sheiks from the desert sands of
Arabia—fierce natives from the isle of
Borneo—untamed Indians from the
early forests of America; all gathered
and romped through an evening of un
bounded glee.
As for order—there never was a more
orderly event on the campus. With
some half dozen hard boiled westerners
walking the floor armed with shooting
irons which they hesitated not a min
ute to use there was no chance for
anyone to overstep the bounds of prop
er decorum. Bandits—they were there
by the dozen but according to latest
reports the police have not succeeded
in capturing any of them.
Miniature newspapers containing the
latest choke bits of scandal were de
livered to the assembled throng. It
was charged that the neophytes of
Sigma Delta Chi were the chief in
stigators of the bits of newspaper
atrocity contained therein. /

Chapman, Sax, Terjesen, Star
in Offensive Playing
Against Badgers
Several Veteran Players Out
on Both Sides; Line
Does Good Work
Shy Huntington’s football machine,
composed partly of veterans and part
ly of untried men, thrilled the fans
yesterday by turning in a 35 to 1
victory over the fighting Badgers of
Pacific university. The game showed
a quality of football that is rarely
seen in the first game of the season
on the home field. Chapman, Sa^,
and Terjeson were the big guns on
the Lemon-Yellow offense which has
aroused the admiration of the sport
critics throughout the Northwest.
The speedy Forest Grove aggrega
tion gave the fans a thrill in the first
part of the game by taking Chapman’s
kickoff on their two yard line and by
a series of shift plays and end runs
placing the ball on Oregon’s 38 yard
line. Here the Oregon line stiffened
and held the red shirts for downs.
Oregon took possession of the ball and
on the first play Sax ploughed through
the center of the Badger line for a
nine yard gain only to lose the ball on
the next play via the fumble route.
Jessee Plays Aerial Game
Taking the ball on the Oregon 45
yard line, Jessee, the Badger signal
barker, elected to play an aerial game
and, 12 minutes ufter the kick off,
hurled an 18 yard pass to Tucker who
raced the remaining 27 yards across
the Lemon-Yellow goal for the first
score of the game. Jessee converted
goal. The first quarter ended with
the score seven to nothing but the ball
was in Oregon’s possession on the Pa
cific one yard line.
Chappy opened the second quarter in
an auspicious manner 'by plunging over
the Pacific goal on the first play and
a few second later evened the count by
booting the pigskin between the up
rights. From then on the,Oregon goal
was never in any very serious danger
and Shy’s men succeeded in punting
two more touchdowns across. The
first was made after a succession of
line bucks which featured Chapman,
Sax, and Terjesen, Hal finally taking it
across the line and coverting goal. The
third touchdown was made possible
when the completion of a 12 yard pass
from (llianninn to "Pniilann nn/1 n
mighty 14 yard smash off left tackle
by Terjesen placed the ball on the six
yard mark. Poulson then carried it
four yards and Terjesen pushed over
on the following play.
Punting Duel Held
During the remainder of the quarter,
Chapman and Pintella engaged in a
punting duel with honors about even.
When the half ended it was Oregon’s
ball exactly in midfield.
It was in the third quarter that the
diminutive Mpe Sax smashed twisted,
and tore his way into the admiration
of the spectators. The first occasion
which brought the stand to its feet
was when “Gunny” took the kickoff
on the two yard line and ripped off
28 yards before he was downed. On
the socond play after that, the ex
Cougar skidded off left tackle and
twisted his way through a broken field
for a 35 yard gain.
Ball Changes Hands
Then followed a period in which the
ball changed hands several times.
Oregon took possession of the ball on
Pacific’S 28 yard line and again Sax
broke into the limelight by being on
the receiving end of a 17 yard pass
that was hurled by Chappy. With the
ball on the 11 yatd line Chapman and
Terjesen alternated ' at cracking the
line, Chapman taking it over for Ore
gon’s fourth score.
Pacific kicked off after the score
'to Oregon’s 5 yard mark and again Mr.
Sax did his stuff by returning the
kick to the 42 yard line for a gain of
27 yards. Sueessive plays drove the
ball ten yards farther and the quarter
ended. At the start of the last period,
the Oregon backs started to pounding
Coach Frank’s line with the force of
a gang of runaway triphammers and
marched straight to the Badger goal
for the last score.

Both teams were forced to play with
out the services of some of their vet
