Lip-Adorned Seniors Parade
Before Judges at Men’s Gym
After six long and arduous weeks
of cultivation of their labial adorn
ments, members of the male element
of the senior class are today in line
for reaping a reward, a reward for
which competition will be so close
as to include even a liairs-breath de
gree of difference. For today is the
day on which Colonel Leader and
two prominent alumni will select
from the senior class the lucky man
—the man whose moustache has in
that short six-week period assumed
the largest and finest proportions,
taking into consideration size, color,
shape and intensity.
The judging, which is expected to
overshadow even the football game
in importance and interest aronsed,
will take place at noon in front of
the men’s gym. It is expected that
Colonel Leader will be a most ex
cellent judge, for he has long main
tained one of the objects in question
on his own upper lip. Furthermore,
his extensive travels in Australia,
England and Canada should have
familiarized him with the different
styles and types of ultra-smart

Additions to Warner Art
Museum are Formally
Received By President
Dr. E. T. Williams Talks on
American-Chinese Bond
in Art* and Government
The art treasures of the Murray
Warner museum.—a bond between
East and West. Such was the
thought expressed by Dr. E. T. Wil
liams, professor of oriental languages
and literature iD the University of
California, in a talk yesterday
morning in the special assembly in
which the recent additions to the
art collection were formally received
by President P. L. Campbell. Mrs.
Gertrude Bass Warner, whose mod
esty prevented her from taking part
in the assembly program, was a quiet
and gracious figure in black velvet
presir’; ng over her gifts in the
afternoon. The museum was opened
to visitors at 1:00 p.m.
“Within the four seas all men are
brethren,” was the old Chinese pro
verb quoted by Professor William
in urging a eloser union of America ^
with China, “the mother of eastern
Asia” in art, government, religion
and philosophy. Professor Williams
said that the day had gone by when
civilisation was regarded as a mat
ter of surnames or ways of shaking
hands, or whether a dinner begins
with fruit or soup. He declared
that even scientifiic knowledge did
not constitute civilization, but the
spirit of brotherly love.
Tang Horse Given
Dr. Williams commended the
work done by the American mission
aries in China, and cited the treaty
of 1858 and the “open door” policy
of 1895 as being the beginning of
understanding between two es
sentially different civilizations.
As a friend of the late Major
Murray Warner, Dr. Williams was
pleased that the museum had been
named for him, since Mr. Warner
had always been interested in all
things Chinese, especially art ob
The Tang period of Chinese art,
between the Seventh and Tenth
'centuries, was mentioned by Pro
fessor Williams as the golden -age
of Chinese literature and art. There
is a particularly interesting pottery
horse of this period in the addition
to the collection, in a case on the
north wall of the old Woman’s
league room in the Woman’s build
ing. It is small, standing only about
eight inches high, and with a bit of
mold still clinging to it from the
old tomb where it lay so long.
Art Books Added
The Oriental library, part of Mrs.
Warner’s gift, contains books on
Chinese, Japanese and European art.
Nearly every museum piece will have
a background in one or more of the
many volumes. A number are not
yet in the collection, as Mrs. Warner
is having them bound. Still others,
with silk tapestry bindings, will
have cases made for them.
The large painting on the west
wall of the library dates from the
Ming period, between the Thirteenth
and Sixteenth centuries. It repre
sents a delegation on the way to
a scholar’s house to inform him that
a degree has been conferred upon
him. Other paintings in the room,;
some painted with the artist’s thumb,
show delicate designs of reeds, with
a flying bird above, giving space
and impression of distance. One
painting is of the spring season,
illustrating a poem in Chinese char
acters at the top.
Bronzes Are Bare
An old bronze bell from a;
Buddhist temple has a remarkable
tone. One can almost see the old
priest striking it with his padded
stick to call the worshippers.
One of the finest of the bronzes
in the old Women’s league room is
a curiously wrought wine jug. Four
bronze dogs, each with his head in
a different direction, no longer guard
an old temple, but a bronze bell in
the middle of the central case. In
the same room are old porcelains
of the rarest blue. The ones with
covers still intact are the most valu
ablej since many of the lids were

Sigma Nu Invites Public to
Ceremony Saturday
Hbmecoming week-end will be
the occasion of a special feature this
year, in the laying of the corner
stone for the new Sigma Nu house
tomorrow morning. The event will
be open to everyone, and all houses
are asked to send representatives.
Although the idea was not one of
the aims in the plans of the Sigma
Nus, they would like to see a tradi.
tioa grow up in the laying of cor
nerstones of new houses as a part
of Homecoming. It is the most ad
vantageous time, for it enables a
large number of alumni to return for
both events at the same time.
The event of tomorrow morning
will take place at 9:30 at the site
of the new house, on Eleventh
street, between Alder and Hilyard.
The Sigma Nu lot is next to the
Kappa Sigma house.
The program is as follows:
Invocation—Bishop W. T. Sumner.
Reading of the Sigma Nu creed—
Ray Harlan, commander of Gamma
Zeta chapter.
Ideals and Traditions of Sigma
Nu—C. N. McArthur.
Message from the University—
President P. L. Campbell.
Laying of the cornerstone by
charter members of Gamma Zeta
Benediction — Bishop W. T.
Charter members of Sigma Nu
are: Luke L. Goodrich, Clifton N.
McArthur, Clarence M. Bishop,
Clyde A. Payne, Condon McCornack,
Frederick J. Ziegler, Edward N.
Blythe, Richard S. Smith, Charles A.
Redmond (deceased).
The Sigma Nu house was the first
national men’s fraternity to be in
stalled on the University campus.
Its chapter was granted in 1900. The
Sigma Nus have lived in their
present house since 1906. At present
there are 30 men living in the house.
The new house is to be of brick
vefieer in the colonial style. In the
spring, when it is to be completed,
it will accommodate forty. The
first floor will be constructed so
that it can be thrown open for so
cial affairs.

Twenty-One Trained Men to Perform
Between Halves of Game
Tumbling is to be the main feature
of the stunt to be given between
halves at the game today, according
to Lot Beattie who has charge of it.
Twenty one tumblers, trained by Earl
Widmer, wrestling coach, will take
part in it.
“Because of the other ceremonies
taking place between halves, the
stunt will be short and snappy. The
actual nature of this skit will not be
divulged, but we promise something
good when the time comerf, ’ ’ says
The O. A. C. rooters will probably
stage some kind of stunt in their sec
tion. Jack Myers may also manage
a very short act, but this is not cer
tain as yet.
University of Ohio.—Flying by
any sort of aircraft over an assem
blage of people on the Ohio campus
•was fortidden by the trustees of the
university at their last meeting.
Repeated stunts over the stadium
when it was thronged with specta
tors at recent football games caused
the decision. During the game with
Colgate, a stunt flyer doing smoke
writing frightened the crowds. An
other aviator hovered over the field
during the Iowa game.
Crowd to Be divided in
Last Event of Week-End
Tonight the Woman’s building
and the Armory will be the scene
of campus merrymaking at the an
nual Homecoming dance. Under
classmen will dance downtown while
alumni and upperclassmen are to use
the Woman’s building.
The decorations of the upperclass
gathering are to be distinctly char
acteristic of Oregon in vivid lemon
and green with hanging baskets of
ferns. It is not all in the nature
of a dance, but will be more or less
of a social gathering for grads who
do not care to dance. A committee
of town alumni will be in Alumni
hall to welcome all the grads. For
'those who do not dance there will
be musical numbers during the even
ing which will consist of violin and
piano solos, and singing.
Music at the upperclass dance will
be furnished by the Midnite Sons,
and the feature of the evening will
be selections by the glee club
quartet. About ono thousand peo
ple are expected to attend the dance
at the Woman’s building and about
750 at the downtown hall.
All underclassmen* must go to the
Armory, the alumni and upperclass
men having a choice of the two halls.
At the Armory, the decorations
Which were used at the sophomore
informal, last week-end, will be
used again. The music for this dance
will be Ray Graham’s orchestra, and
the foature will be a dance by
Camille Burton. Punch will be
servod at both dances.
Tickets may bo purchased at the
men’s houses and at the Co-op, as
well as at the entrances to the dance
halls. Alumni are to be admitted
free upon presentation of their reg

on Hayward Field Today
By Ken Cooper
Today is the day!
Today is the day that some 3,000
grads have been waiting for. To
day is the day that a couple of
thousand undergrads have been
waiting for. Today is the day that
the Aggie rooters have been waiting
for. To “Shy” Huntington, to
Coach “Smilin Dick” Rutherford,
to Bill Hayward, and to both varsity
teams—this is the day.
Whilst the dope is flying thiek
and fast, the supporters of the
Lemon-Yellow will have to take a
look at the facts of the case find
judgo for themselves. After thp
so-called dope has been simmered
down we find that the only two
games upon which we can pass judg
ment are the Idaho and W. 8. C.
game. First, wo find Oregon out
'playing the gem staters and ■ draw
ing a scoreless tie, but on the fol
lowing week to see Shy’s warriorn
taking the short end of a 13-7 count
at the hands of the Cougars.
Now for our neighbors. They
journey to the gem state and took a
7-0 walloping from the Vandals, but
came back ami held the heavy hit
ting crew from Pullman to a three
point tie. There you have it. Ore
gon is seven points stronger than
the Ags and the Ags are six points
stronger than the varsity, leaving
a grand sum and total of one point
‘in favor of the webfoot clan.
Dope is Unimportant
Now, as any one knows who has
followed the football fortunes of the
two schools, one point of dope is a
mere bagatelle and as a usual thing
dope of any magnitude means very
little when the grid representatives
of two Oregon institutions get on
the field of battle. That eliminates
dope as having any bearing on the
possible outcome of the battle.
Football experts tell us that science
never plays a very great paft in
the struggle betwpen these two
schools, but that it is invariably a
case of fight—fight from whistle to
gun—with the team that fights the
hardest and the longest usually com
ing out on top of the heap.
Over in Corvallis they have it
figured out that the Beaver Fight
has made a great change—a step
forward—that Beaver Fight has
just come into its own. Maybe it
has. There is one thing certain,
however, that Oregon Fight has not
changed one whit since that first
little band of grid warriors started
making Oregon’s football history
way back in 1894. The spirit may
have increased with swelling of the
student enrollment, it may have be
come modernized, but back of it all

Old Timer Harkens Back
to the Civil War Period
The oldest of Oregon’s adopted
sons is greeting the campus with his
“hollo.” lie js a slight, venerable
figure with white beard and twinkly
blue eyes that defy anyone to bo
lieve that he is 77 years old. But
he says he is, though his actions—
spirited as those of any frosh) dis
prove it. Both he and his wife are
graduates of ’69 Grinnell college,
II. H. Robbins is a personal friend
of M. H. Douglass, the University
librarian. Back in the days when
Mr. Robbins was treasurer of Grin
nell, he collected tuition from the
University librarian.
His residence in Eugene has per
mitted him to watch the growth of
Oregon for 13 years and to compare
it with the college he once attended.
In the days just after the civil
war, Mr. Robbins was a member of
the first baseball team in Grinnell.
“The batter (or striker as he was
called in those days) would holler
out to the pitcher to send him a
knee-high ball. The pitcher would
oblige with an underhand delivery. I
played shortstop unless a pitcher was
I needed. There were only two, one
who could pitch slow balls, and ono
who could pitch fast ones.”
Mr. Robbins, ‘like all the rest of
tlie gang, knew the tricks to play
upon the professors. At that time
rogular hours had to be kept by
the students and each student had
to report what he did during each
sijrty minutes.
“I spent an hour over my book%
