UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1923
THE DOWAGER QUEEN OF THE
Summer may be pleasant but autumn
is never 'without its admirers. Our
popular air, “When the Leaves Come
Tumblin’ Down Through the Trees”—
testifies to our regard for the fall in
the year of grace, 1923, as have other
songs in other days.
The glory of the maples in the first
days of the frost; the crackle and
snap of the ground under foot, and the
crimson blush of the vines of Old Vil
lard; the tang of the morning air and
the mists in the evening; all this is
autumn in a University community.
We woke the other morning on our
sleeping porch. We recalled that we
had heard the 7 o’clock whistle blow
some time ago, so we dashed out of
bed. Lo! it was 7:30—and ourselves
with an 8 o ’clock class. We hastily
gulped a cup of hot coffee and waited
for our second piece of well browned
toast, without which the day is never
started right. But we were late to
class. Doggone the luck, said we. And
then asked, why blame the luck. The
chill of these fall ante meridians makes
a warm place to curl up under blankets
“Oh, dear, I’m so glad there is to be
a full moon on the 23rd of this month,”
said the University girl, “I love full
moons, they’re so romantic. I do hope
that the almanac’s right and it’s clear
that night, and I’ll tend to getting a
“A WORD FOR AUTUMN”
(A. A. Milne)
“Last night the waiter put the celery
on with the cheese, and 1 knew that
summer was indeed dead. Other signs
of autumn there may be—the reddening
leaf, the chill in the early morning air,
the misty evenings—but none of these
comes home to me so truly. There may be
cool mornings in. July; in a year of
drought the leaves may change before
their time; it is only with the first
celery that summer is over.
I knew all along that it would not
last. Even in April I was saying that
winter woxdd soon be here. Yet, somehow,
it had begun to seem possible lately that
a miracle might happen, that summer
might drift on and on through the
months—a final upheaval to crown a
wonderful year. The celery settled that.
Last night, with the celery, autumn
came into its own.
Yes, I can face the winter with calm.
I suppose I had forgotten what it was
really like . I had been thinking of the
winter as a horrid, wet, dreary time—
Now 1 can see other things—crisp and
sparkling days, long pleasant evenings,
cheery fires. Good work shall be done
this winter. Life shall be lived well.
The end of summer is not the end of the
world. Here’s to October—and, waiter,
some more celery.”

These Chilly Fall Nights! B-r-r-r!
A brother, with electric torch,
Came out upon the sleeping porch,
Cocked his eye on us and said,
Come on there, you, roll outa bed.
** ** **
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

Since there are so many poets of the
impressionist school on the campus, we
wonder why some of them don’t produce
a lyric of fall mill-racing parties. We
can’t write it for them, hut we can
suggest some material as follows: A
dark huddled crowd on the hank of the
race; a wink of lantern light; a low
murmur, one, two, three, four *n! The
flash of a white body through the air
into the wintry cold water and then—
“Run, d-mn you, run!”

WE SUGGEST A PIPE CLEANER!
I’ve been meaning to write you now
for a week or thereabouts. My pipe
won’t work. I was having my fiftieth for

peace with the brothers last week when
my pipe suddenly refused to draw. I m
not meaning to be witty, but my pipe
has no self-starter on it and until it
starts to draw, I’m out of luck for a
thing. Doping you will do the same and
decent daydream. I’ve tried every blessed

The Alluring West and
One Who Returned
By Margaret Morrison
“You say you’ve read of the lure, tho
The call of the West, and all that—
That’s the lure that tugs at your beat
When you’ve turned onee more to the
In such a way might Miss H. Broek
smitli, house mother of Susan Camp
bell hall, have described that feeling
which made her come back to the Uni
versity of Oregon, after having spent
a year here in 1922 in the same position
which she holds now.
A thoroughly “dyed-in-the-wool”
middle westerner, Miss Broeksmith ac
cepted the position with not a little
trepidation, when first she received the
call from “Dean Fox,” to come west
and mother the girls who were to oc
cupy the new dormitory.
“I accepted the position with tho
fixed stipulation that it should only be
for a year,” she smiled. And when
she smiles, her deep blue eyes have that
misty warmth which one somehow con
nects with a real mother and a last
ing friend and confident.”
One year in the University and a
summer of travel through the Crater
Lake region and up through the
Olympics was the right prescription to
give her the real western spirit, she
says, so after a year spent in the east,
she returned again to the University.
This is not Miss Broeksmith’s first
experience as a mother to a group of
girls, for she spent three years in per
fecting such an organization at Iowa
State Teacher’s college in Ames, Iowa.
“How did you go about it?” I asked.
“Wasn’t it all planned out for you be
fore you started?”
“I should say not,” she laughed. “The
president presented me with the posi
tion and when I asked how to go about
it, he replied that I could only try it
out and learn through trial and error.”
Not only is Miss Broeksmith a per
fect mother to the grcjup of 1 OS girls
which she has to manage, but she finds
time to play golf occasionally and she
is also an expert horsewoman.
She has visited most parts of the
United States and has travelled abroad
Proof that she is not an inexperi
enced collector of beautiful tapestries,
was evident by the finished apprecia
tion which she exhibited in pointing
out their fine points. Particularly was
this shown when she brought out for
inspection, two small specimens of
Chinese work, done in deep blues and
rose; gems of color only,* to the un
uneducated eye, but even then, worthy
of more than a casual glance.
And to the lady herself they meant
all that was woven into them, the in
tricate Chinese characters, plus the
atmosphere in which they were pur
chased and perhaps the people with
who mshe dealt with at the time of
The very atmosphere of the apart

Alumni Join Students
in Noise Fest
By Webster Jones
PORTLAND, Nov. 9.— (Special
to Emerald)—A stupendous example of
Oregon Spirit was shown Friday night
when the “Thundering Thousand” got
into action and with the noise making
machines of the alumni association
cannonaded the streets of Portland for
The rally at the Multnomah Athletic
club was the main feature of the eve
ning with one of those stirring pep
talks by Colonel John Leader, which
seldom fail to strike a key note in arous
ing Oregon Spirit.
The alumni took over the meeting
and talks of the old days in Oregon
football were given by Bob Kuyken
dall, Mart Howard, Sam Kozer,
Captain Coghley, Shy Huntington, Pat
Mac Arthur, Jack Latourette and other
From the Multnomah Athletic club,
the “Thundering Thousand” marched
down in a lengthy serpentine through
the streets. The high buildings re
verberated to the deafening sounds of
steam rollers, clanging steel saws and
the shouts of “O-O-O-Oregon.”
Heading the parade was an escort of
policemen, the University band and
students following in a long line.
Around the Imperial hotel, where
the team was housed for the night,
there was a seething mass of students
and spirit and enthusiasm was rife in
anticipation of the game.
Yell King Jack Myers led the yells
at Ihe Multnomah Athletic club with
five hundred or more students who
turned out and many mighty “Oskies”
and “The Team”s were given with the
old Oregon fight.
The parade went past the Multnomah
hotel, where the Stanford team was
stopping, to show them that Oregon
is here with spirit and with fight.

In Contest, 14-3
Chapman Saves Oregon frotm Shutout by Field
Goal in Third Quarter; Cardinal Line Heavier
and Has the Breaks; Ter jesen Out in Last Period.
By KEN COOPER.
PORTLAND, Nov. 10.—(Special to the Emerald.)—Oregon was
saved from a shut-out yesterday afternoon on Multnomah field when
“Chappy” hooted a field goal from placement on the 37-yard line.
Shy’s fighting varsity went down before a heavier team that got more
than its share of the breaks. The final score: Stanford 14, Oregon 3.
The first break of the game went to the Red Shirts when Oregon
fumbled Nevers’ kickoff and Stanford recovered on the Oregon 14
yard line. By a supreme effort the varsity line braced and held the
heavy Stanford backs for downs, Hunk punting out of danger.
From Frosh, 3-0
Oregon Men Have Edge
During First Half
By “Bob" Theiring
Staff If riter 0. A. C. Barometer
OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallis, Nov. 9.—(Special to
Emerald.) In a hotly contested game
the O. A. C. rooks triumphed over the
U. of O. yearlings today by a 3-0 score.
Only the stubborn defense of the
Lemon-Yellow squad on the threshold
of their goal anil the splendid punting
of Harrison kept the score from being
larger, as the rooks threatened the
babes several times only to bo stopped
by the stone wall defense of the frosh.
The first half of the game was very
fast, the advantage seeming to bo with
the Oregon team. Two first downs and
a penalty for holding placed the ball
in Oregon’s possession on the rook six
yard line. Here the Aggie men held
and the frosh wero forced to give up
the ball. Liebe punted out of danger.
This was, with one exception, tho
only chance that the frosh had to
score, as the rooks kept tho ball well
out of danger for the rest of the game.
The other Oregon opportunity came
in the second period. A 25-yard run by
Harrison on a “dead-man” play brought
the ball to the O. A. C. 30-yard line.
A* penalty on the University men for
15 yards lost them their chance, how
ever, as on the next play a rook inter
cepted a pass and ran 30 yards before
Wes Schulmerick was the big man
for the O. A. C. yearlings, smashing
through the Oregon lino time after
time for big gains. It was his place
kick at the beginning of the fourth
quarter that sent the pig-skin over the
bar for the first and only score of tho
game. Denman and Liebe wero the
other stars for the rooks.
For Oregon, Harrison was the stellar
light. His punting and running with
the ball saved the freshmen severe
losses time and again. Cash and Jones
in the backfield also caused the rooks
no little worry. Kjelland was a tower
of strength in the line until he was
taken out because of injuries.
The lineup was as follows:

The engagement of Lea MacPike, ’26,
of the Sigma Pi Tau fraternity, and
Wilhelmina Daniels, ’25, of the Sigma
Beta Phi sorority, was announced at
the respective houses Thursday eve
lhe iirst Stanford counter came in
the first period, when the Cardinals
got possession of the ball on their own
45-yard mark and by a series of line
plunges, which featured Nevers, pushed
the ball over Oregon’s goal after a
15-yard pass, Nevers to Lawson.
The rest of the half found the var
sity on the defensive with the ball
in its own territory most of the time
The weight of the Stanford line made
gains through the line almost an impos
sibility. Oregon did not get into posi
tion to open up with the aerial of
fensive during the first three quarters
of the struggle.
The seeeml Cardinal score came at
the beginning of the third quarter when
Latham’s punt was blockod by the fast
charging forward defense of' the men
from Palo Alto. Shipke, Stanford line
man, scooped up the ball on Oregon’s
fifteen-yard line and raced for a touch
down. Campbell converting the goal.
In the final period, Chappy opened
his passing offense and with a strategic
mixture of passes and line smashes,
worked the ball from his own twenty
yard line to the Cardinal twenty five
yard mark. Hore an attempted pass
by Latham was intercepted and Nevers
punted out. Oregon again worked the
ball inside the Stanford thirty yard
line and with one minute to play, Chap
man elected to try for a field goal. On
the next play, Chapman’s right toe
sent the ball squarely between the up
rights from the thirty-seven yard
mark, for Oregon’s only score. Nevers
and Campbell were easily tho star per
formers of the eleven from the south.
Time after time the big Cardinal full
back would hurl his 200 pounds through
the Lemon-Yellow line for gains while
Scotchy Campbell at safety proved him
self to be one of the most elusive
open-field runners that has faced the
varsity this season.
Chapman and Terjesen were the

Oregon’s section of bleachers filled to
overflowing, at least) seemingly, be
fore main body arrived from its serpen
tine up Washington street. Yet they
crowded in. At 1:30, one hour before
game began, the seats were filled. Ore
gon alumni without rooters’ headpieces
were cautioned by yell leader Myers
to “yell or get out.” They yelled.
Mayor George Baker plainly showed
which side he was on. He was given a
big ovation by rooters. Pigging was
given usual razzing. Fred Harrison,
frosh quarter, was given a good one
when he walked by with his.

The Benson Poly band, evidently in
services of Stanford, appeared on the
field at 1:46 and playing, marched to
its place in the center of grandstand.
An estimate of 15,000 was placed on
attendance. It seemed that at least
14,999 of them packed in the Oregon
bleachers. It was, in other words, a'
sandwich formation. Eight green and
yellow boxes of confetti were over
turned from the roof of grandstand
just after Oregon varsity hit field.
Between halves the Oregon chant was
“chanted” in midfield after a long stu
dent serpentine. Time did not permit
giving the “Oskie” and othorB. Teams
were coming out the doors of Multno
mah club house. A gonerous sprink
ling of yellow chrysanthemums dis
tinguished the grandstand! from the
Oregon bleachers. Possessors were main
ly co-eds and co-eds of Old Oregon
In spite of the predominance of Uni
versity colors, there was enough Cardi
nal-and-white to show that there were
supporters of the other side. Quite
a lot of noise can be had from small
rooting sections. Stanford’s cheer
leader realized this. The cards evident
ly were not stacked just right in the
last quarter. Andy Kerr made substi
tutions so fast to stop Oregon’s ad
vance that an adding machine would
have been useful.
