Oregon Daily Emerald VOLUME XXV UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1923 NUMBER 48 SEVEN VARSITY All But One of Squad Return for Basketball Season; Prospects Look Bright PRACTICES WILL START Shooting, iScrimmages and Development of Team Work, Basis of Training With the closing of the football season, interest is being turned to basketball. The lemon-yellow basketeers were moulded into a championship team in 1920 and carried off the northwest title, with such stars as Chapman, Durno, the Latham brothers, Bellar and the present varsity coach, Billy Kein hart. The next year, 1921, saw most of these dependables gone, and Bohler .was forced to begin anew with green material and consequently Oregon won very few of her con ference games. Last year these new men began to deliver and Oregon began to show signs of another strong team of championship cali ber. Many Old Men Back This year all but one of last year’s squad has returned to school and will be on hand at the start of the season. Latham is the only one remaining of that 1920 team. The other lettermen back are Gow ans, Shafer, Edlunds, Altstock, Bockhey and Chapman. All but Latham and Chapman are working out daily. Thus seven varsity men are on hand to form the nucleus of this year’s aggregation and in addition to these there are a number of men of varsity caliber who are battling for a berth on the team. Such men as King, Hobson, Frazer, Stoddard, Gillenwater, Myers, Martin, Tuck and others who have shown up well either on the freshman team or in do.ugtnut competition are turning out. _ Players Begin Work Bill has been putting the players through their paces and paying special attention to the fundament als of the game, such as pivoting, shooting, checking, dribbling a|nd the like. Next week the practise will start in earnest and will be composed of shooting practise, scrimmage and the development of teamwork. The squad will be re duced to a first lineup and the sub situtes, just before the Christmas holidays, in order to determine who will be taken on the barnstorming trip that is being planned for that time. The indications point to a com paratively light but a fast, scrappy five which will represent Oregon this year 'in the conference games. It should be a team which should be up in the running at all times and capable of giving the best of them a hard battle. ELECTION ANNOUNCED G. and M. society announces the election to full membership of Manuel. E. Souza, of Eugene. Mary Lou Burton Tells of Position in San Francisco Mary Lou Burton, *23, a former student in the school of journalism, tells, ‘in a letter received recently by Katherine Spall, of her work in San Francisco. Miss Burton, who is employed by the Associated Oil company, is secretary to the director of the industrial relations department of the company. An extract from the letter reads: “The main reason for my taking and keeping this position, is that it pays much better than journalistic work does at first. Getting and keeping a journalis tic job in San Francisco is rather strenuous, in fact it requires quite some time to go at start if you work for some of the bigger papers. “There is quite a group of Ore gon people in San Francisco,” says Miss Burton. “Among those mentioned in her letter are Alta Chenoweth. Mabel Gilham, Claire Turley, Tracey Byers and Helen McDonald.” Miss Burton is a member of Theta Sigma Phi and was on the Emerald and Oregana staffs. KAPPA SICS INCREASE Head List of Student Union Fund With $2,000 Gift - • A bond for $1,000 has recently been given towards the fund for the student union building by the Kappa Sigma fraternity. This new gift brings the Kappa Sig donation up to $2,000, as their ten Eugene alumni gave an equal amount last spring. . The total amount which has been pledged to this fund is now $16,000. The student union fund was started last year in an attempt to secure the means for building a student union building. Fourteen campus organizations then pledged to the fund, getting the drive well under way. They were: Delta Gamma, Hammer and Coffin, Phi Kappa Psi, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Phi, Kappa Alpha Theta, Phi Sigma Pi, Alpha Chi Omega, Pi Beta Phi, Hendricks Hall, Susan Campbell hall, Friendly Hall, Delta Tau Delta and Kappa Sigma Eugene alumni. The Kappa Sigma donation is the largest that has yet been given by one organization, the next being those of the lia^ls of residences which were $1,500 each. STUDENTS VISIT CAMPUS Members of Extension Classes on Campus at Homecoming Two students who take work through the correspondence division of the University, Helen Norris, of Medford, and George K. Wilshire, of Lakeview, Oregon, were on the cam pus Homecoming. Miss Norris has been on the cam pus before and Mr. Wilshire hopes to come here next year to study med icine. He is spending a few days on the campus at present, visiting the different classes. O. A. C. Student President Lauds Oregon Sportsmanship The associated students have re ceived a letter from Percy P. Locev, president of the O. A. C. student body, congratulating Oregon upon the spirit and loyal sports manship displayed during the Home coming week-end. “The students of the University of Oregon are to be congratulated on the fine demonstration of true institutional spirit and loyalty given at their Homecoming last week-end,” the letter reads. “This spirit and loyalty was in evidence at every turn. Visitors from the Oregon Agri cultural college deeply appreciate every courtesy shown them and will look forward to the time when they may returir the hospitality extended on every hand.” It is the general opinion among the Oregon student body officials that a better feeling between the two schools is being made manifest of late. “The student body officers at O. A. C. have made every effort to cooperate in trying to preserve a good spirit between the two stu dent bodies,” says Claude Robinson, A. S. U. O. president. The O. A. C. letter continues: “Not only the students, but the members of the University football team are to be congratulated for the true sportsmanship displayed on the field of battle. They were not lacking in ‘Oregon Fight.’ It is our sincere hope that in the game with the University of Washington, Oregon will be victorious.” This sort of inter-college attitude has been the aim of the student body leaders for a long time. With the growth of the two institutions, friendly relations become more ne cessary. “They have shown a splendid spirit of sportsmanship over there,” says Claude Robinson. It is his hope that the Oregon students will emulate it in every way. STUDENTS PLAN Various Organizations to Entertain With Dinners and Thanksgiving Affairs PORTLAND DANCE FRIDAY Faculty Urge Students to Return for First Classes; Special Trains to Be Run With students staying over the Thanksgiving vacation and having a homesick feeling for turkey din ners and the old homestead, several social events have Been planned for those remaining in Eugene. In Port land, of course, the inter-collegiate dance on the night of November 29 in the Multnomah hotel will be the big feature. Many Events Planned The women of Delta Gamma and the men of Bachelordon will be guests of Professor and Mrs. F. S. Dunn for dinner and the evening on Saturday. The Bachelordons are making tentative plans for a Port land get-together as .well. Ten Alpha Delta Pis and three Alpha Phis will give an informal dance at the Alpha Delta Pi house on Friday night. Mrs. Arthur Miner and other alumnae of Alphi Omicron Pi will entertain the members of that sorority with Thanksgiving dinner at the Alpha O house. Because of numerous dinner en gagements for Thanksgiving, the Pi Beta Phi girls will have their house Thanksgiving festivities on Friday instead of Thursday. The girls of Hendricks hall plan a Thanksgiving dinner, but are not planning any entertaining. With exams so near, it is expected that many of the houses will com bine forces to enjoy themselves while they may. Then will come “the calm before the storm,” and all social events will be taboo. Specials to Be Bun The faculty have expressed the hope that students will be back on time, in order not to miss the be ginning classes on Monday. The Southern Pacific railroad and the Oregon Electric are both running special trains which leave Portland Sunday night. Special rates are of fered, both for round trip and other wise. MYERS WANTS CROWD Efforts Made to Organize Hooters For Oregon-Washington Game Arrangements are being made to place those going to the Oregon Washington game in machines, so Jack Myers, yell leader, is anxious to locate all persons desiring to at tend the game at Seattle. Every one going should let him know im mediately. It is hoped that a large crowd will make the trip. If there is a large enough number going, the rooters may get together in Port land, said Jack Myers. Two-dollar and fifty cent tickets will be sold for $1.00 and there will be reserved seats for Oregon students. The team will leave at 4:12 Thursday and will stay at Gowman’s hotel, the old Washington hotel annex. The game starts at 2:15 on Saturday. Every body who can, should turn out, as it will be a game worth seeing. Jack Benefiel will be at the Gow man hotel with the team, and any Oregon student wishing to get a ticket for the game can do so by getting in touch with him. PORTLAND HOP PLANNED Annual Thanksgiving Intercollegiate Dance Set for Nov. 29 The inter collegiate hop, which is : held each Thanksgiving vacation in i Portland for the purpose of creating i a friendly spirit between Oregon 1 and O. A. C. students has been j scheduled for November 29 at the Multnomah hotel. Eay Graham’s ; orchestra, a campus musical group, I will furnish the music and Miss Camille Burton, an Oregon fresh ' man, will do a feature dance. A number of local students have been placed on tte committee to boost the affair here and they say evidence points to a sizeable dele gation of lemon-yellow supporters at the festivity. Gay Old Shawls to Be Shown by Mu Phi Mothers Famous Counterpanes in Exhibition Shawls our grandmothers wore —what memories and associations they bear of gay and festive colonial dances in which our grandmothers took part, wrapped in the folds of some elaborately embroidered fabric. v „ They will do their best tp speak next Saturday, when the Mu Phi Epsilon Mothers’ club, gathers them all together for a showing in the alumni room of the Woman’s building. Among the contributions will be a shawl that is an exact copy of the one which Abraham Lincolp wore and which is being exhibited by Mrs. W. E. Osburn. Another which has been in existance over 100 years is be ing shown by Mrs. Marian Mc Clain. The affair is to be in the form of a silver tea, the proceeds to go to a Mu Phi Epsilon scholar ship.

Nine | dozen more to be used for experi mental purposes will arrive within ' the next two or three days.

HIGH SCHOOL WOMEN TO MEET ON CAMPUS Plan to Foster Formation of Girls’ Leagues In addition to the conferences for high school student body officers and editors to be hold January 11 and 12, it was decided at a meeting of the managing committee yester day, to add a special conference for high school women. The delegates to tlds meeting wifi be, in the main, presidents of high school girls’ leagues. In the event there are no such leagues the student body sec retaries will come to the campus. A separate program will be worked out for this conference, the com mittee decided, and the main topic for consideration will be the forma tion of more girls ’ leagues in the high schools and the general ad vertisement and expansion of the idea. Officers of the University Wo men’s league have expressed their desire to cooperate in tho move ment to got the high school girls here on the campus and interest them in discussion of problems per taining to the part of the girl in high school affairs. Such subjects as participation in athletics, girls’ social organization, serviceable modes of clothes for school, activi ties, writing, and many others, offer possibilities for discussion. At the meeting of the committee it was decided to enlarge and im prove on the entertainment phase of the high school conferences. The usual programs will be outlined for tho discussion of questions which have a direct bearing on the high school student. But it is felt that one of the most interesting fea tures of the two days’ conference for the visiting prepper is the in ! sight he gets into university life. | Floyd McKalson has beon placed in charge of College Night, which will be held on Friday of the con ference week-end. At this affair there will be presented a lively pro gram for tho amusement and diver sion of the visiting delegates. John Piper, in charge of the ar rangements for tho conferences, says that the success of the conferences will depend largely upon the as sistance given by the student body. The week-end is to be given over entirely to playing host to the visitors. It is to bo an all university affair. RACKS ADDED TO LIBRARY New Filing System in Journalism Newspaper Room Convenient _ Fou. racks, similar to those used in the newspaper room in the library, have arrived for use in the newspaper room in the journalism building. Two of the racks will be used to hold the eastern exchanges, one for thg state papers, and one for the college exchanges. The sticks for holding the papers have not yet arrived, but will be here in a few days. The racks will make the reading room much more convenient for the students, since the papers have here tofore been stacked cn tables, making their classification very difficult. Scrubs Fight But Revamped Varsity Plows Through for Hard Earned Gains MAUTZ MAKES STAR END Second Stringers in Last Battle Tonight; Season Was Hard But Men Stuck With the cards atacked against them, numerous defeats behind them, and the strongest team of the sea son facing them, the football squad is working with a grim ferocity that bodes ill for the opposing play ers next Saturday. Last night’s scrimmage was car ried through with a sullen vicioos ness that shows the men are fight ing as men fight who have their backs to the witll, fighting as men fight who have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Varsity Lineup Changed Three near battles were stopped! by the coaches during the fracas, and the entire varsity was charging with ferocious drives against the stubborn defense of the scrub line. Big Hunk Latham carried the ball a good deal and was driving with that old speed that made him a star last year; he also showed improve ment over his work last Saturday, in backing up a defensive line. Chapman and Sax alternated at calling signals and halfback posi tion. Ike Mills was dragged from his position on the line and tried Dut as fullback, while Sinclair work ed at guard. Mills played fullback on the freshman eleven last year. Taken all together it was a re vamped outfit that fought against the scrubs last night, but they fought and they made yardage. Vonder Ahe hasn’t taken part in any scrimmage yet, but is working out hard to get in shape in case he gets an opportunity to go against the Huskies. Gooding and Warren have been alternating on the var sity at tackle, but have little chance of wresting a position from either Dick Reed or Cogs Campbell. Mautz Work Improved Mautz and Williamson are the best bets for ends ^ and after the good work they did in the O. A. C. game there is little chance for any of the wing aspirants to nose them out of their regular jobs. Mautz’s work in the game Saturday is of the class that those who watched him battle on the freshman eleven last year were expecting to see him display earlier in the sea son, but now that lie has found himself there is little doubt that ho will continue to perform in tho same steller manner. Scrubs Will Finish Tonight the second stringers will celebrate their last practice of tho year. It has been a long hard grind for these men who never receive any recognition, other than abuse, yet thoy stuck, and the roll shows that putside those claimed by injuries there are as many now as started the season. This is a record of Ore gon fight that doesn’t receive much publicity, nevertheless it is there and of the stuff that makes Oregon fight something tangible. NEW UNIFORMS ARE RECEIVED BY CADETS Government Issues Made-to-Order Outfits to Upperclass Student Officers Thirty men, cadet officers in the local It. O. T. C., blossomed out yes terday in as many brand new made-to-order uniforms. Colonel W. S. Sinclair, commandant of the ■R. O. T. C., stated last evening that the government has allowed $30 for each member of the junior and senior classes here in the Univer sity for the better uniforms. This is the first year that the advanced students have been issued anything except the regulation stock uniforms and the change is welcomed by all the men affected. Colonel Sinclair announces that £here will be a special examination for second lieutenants in the U. S. army held during the week begin ning April 14, 1924.
