== By Glenn E. Hoover —
We are now nearing the close of
what Prof. Beard calls “a thunder
ing demonstration of democratic
power,”—a presidential election.
We are teld that it is the particu
lar duty of University men and wo
men to be interested in the spec
tacle and take part in it. ' But the
show is a bit dull, the theme is i
frayed and hackeyed and the cast i
is unusually weak. It has been
played intermittently in this coun- j
try for more than a century and a '
quarter. The audience is unques
tionably bored.
* » #
Even our Portland contemporary
which is the most excited over the
prospect of a land-slide in favor of
its Candidate, admits editorially,
that there is no hope of reviving
the quaint custom of demonstrat
ing the merits of the party leader
by carrying a torch and marching
in the mud. This tradition to
gether with the interest which it
manifested has followed the derby
hat, the stick-pin and the suspend
ers into the limbo of the everlost.
When France needs a president
the Chamber of Deputies and the
Senate meet at Versaille, in joint
session, and without even the for
mality of a nominating speech, pro*
ceed to the election. There is as ;
much neatness and dispatch in that
method as there is buncombe and
hullabaloo in ours. Nor am I sure
that French presidents compare un
favorably with our own*
Britain too is undergoing a gene
ral election, the results of which
should be known next Thursday.
The issues are more confused than
is common in Britain. Apparently
MacDonald is tired of holding of
fice without power and hopes for
a majority in the new House. We
prophecy he will not have a major
ity but it is possible that both the
Conservatives and Laborites will
gain at the expense of the Liberals.
The British Liberals and our Demo
cratic party are finding the hard
est going in the middle-of-the-road.
Beading, viceroy of India, re
sponsible for the maintenance of
order among one-fifth of the human
race, exercises his emergency
powers to supplement the criminal
laws in an attempt to suppress what
he calls anarchy. This anarchy is
probably what the “founding fath
ers” would have called revolution.
If the Indian people would take
their eyes off their English oppres
tor long enough to look over the
frontier into China, they ought to
be more reconciled to the Pax
The “white man’s burden” in
the Near East shows no sign of
growing lighter. Reports indicate
that but for British tanks and
planes, the made-in-England King
dom of the Hedjaz would have been
wiped out before some of our read
ers learned that it is in north
western Arabia.
The existence or the Hedjaz is
resented by the Wahabies, a fierce,
fanatical tribe, constituting “the
“reform party” of the Arab Mo
hammedans. They drink neither
wine nor coffee nor do they smoke
tobacco. They further manifest
their zeal as reformers by cutting
off the* heads of their opponents.
[Upon ’request of the Editor of
the Emerald, Professor Glenn E.
Hoover of the economics and poli
tical science departments, has con
sented to contribute a weekly inter
pretation of national and interna
tional events. This is the first of a
series.—Editor’s note.]

Noise Parade Wiil Start
Downtown, Go Through

Naturalization Ceremony
Postponed Because of
The President’s Illness
Every year, the University tnies
to put on a bigger and better
Homecoming than the year before,
and the chairmen and their commit
tees work toward that end.. This
year there are to be several changes
in the Homecoming program, which,
it is thought, will be an improve
ment. To begin with, the noise
parade will start downtown at the
armory, and, while the strains of
band music and the noise making
apparatus blare out intermittently,
will make its way up to Kincaid
field, where the rally will be held.
Familiar Mien to Speak
The list oi speakers at the rally
contains some of the old familiar
names, such as Jack Lauterette, Ed
Bailey, “Slim” Crandall, and others
of former football fame, as well as
that true Oregon friend, Colonel
John Leader.' These speakers, with
the band, men’s glee club and the
team, are to sit on a specially con
structed platform. The glee club
will sing several numbers.
Another Change which will elim
inate the usual, congestion is the
plan for three dances; two upper
class and alumni dances at the Wo
man’s building and the Cainpa
Shoppe, and the underclass at the
armory. The silver cup, which will
he awarded by the A. S. TJ. O., to
the house that erects the best sign
for Homecoming, Will'be presented
at the dance at the Woman’s build
Hospitality to be Shown
Hospitality to Washington stu
i dents is one of the big ideas of the
whole Homecoming committee, and
they will be given free tickets to
everything, but the football game.
This is to continue the good spirit
that exists between the two insti
The new uniforms for the officers
of the advanced corps of the R. O.
T. C. will be finished in a few
weeks. The Eugene Clothing Manu
facturing company which have been
awarded the contract, have prom
ised them as soon as possible. The
uniforms had to be especially made
and separate measurements taken
for each man.
Special Train
With Visitors To
Be Here Saturday
NEARLY five hundred people
are expected to arrive here
next Saturday from the
University of Washington in a
special train consisting of an
observation car, several pull
mans and a diner. An attempt
will be made to have the rail
road company sidetrack the
train on a siding back of Vil
lard hall, in order that it will
not be necessary for the visi
tors to travel the distance
from town to the campus.
More than two hundred auto
ists are also expected from the
northern state and a large
number of University of Mich
igan grads are planning to
come down in order to see
Coach Maddock who comes
from that institution.
V. T. Motschenbacher, ’14,
New Presiding Head
At a meeting of the Portland
branch of the Alumni association
last Saturday, the officers for the
following year were elected: Vernon
T. Motschenbacher, ’14, is the presi
dent, James Sheehy, vice-president,
and Mrs. Hilda Brant Carruth, sec
retary-treasurer. These officers are
not for the entire' -association of
alumni but merely for the Portland
branch, which is the largest branch.
Motschenbaeher is a member of
Alpha Tau Omega, and was student
body president, sophomore presi
dent,, member of Friars, To-Ko-Lo,
baseball team, debate team, Order
of the “O”, and the glee club.

Gamma Delta, Sigma Delta Chi, and
was student body president, sopho
more president, and captain of the
baseball and soccer teams.
Mts. Carruth, ’13, was active in
music and dramatics on the campus.
She is a member of Mu Phi Epsilon.
At the meeting, fifty Portland
alumni of the University of Mich

of Joe Maddock on the Oregon cam

Royal Rooters Rehearse Today
« ^ ^ «
Team Will Furrtish Inspiration
Four hundred loyal sons of Ore
gon are asked by the yell staff to
give less than hour of their time
this afternoon at 4:30 o’clock to
indulge in a practice work-out in
the bleachers at Hayward field, in
order to impress the visiting Wash
ingtonians as well as Old Oregon
alumni with the fact that the Uni
versity has lost nothing of the
originality and whole hearted fight
which she has always had.
There are 400 specially reserved
seats near the 40-yard line in the
bleachers, which have been set aside
for this special group of rooters.
And the yell king, Freddie Martin,
asks that every available man turn
out to help form this group which
will be known as the Royal Root
A new stunt which is promised
to be a novel affair has been
planned. It is clever and will be
sure to impress upon the minds of
those in the grandstands as well as
the men on the field that Oregon
as a whole is backing its team to
the limit in the annual Homecoming
According to Martin, there are
some cards to be used in the stunt
which might be spoiled if it should
rain this afternoon, so in event that
it does rain, the rehearsal will be
deferred until tomorrow. However
if there is no actual rain at 4:30
o ’clock, 4every loyal man should
turjii out.
Coach Joe Maddock has promised
to ^send his team through their
paces before the crowd so the root
ers will be given a taste of what
they may expect to happen this
Saturday. And, of course, they will
have the team to yell for, and not
I just a tame rehearsal.

Store Windows
Will Be Dressed
For Homecoming
University students In
making this a big Homecom
ing has been promised by the
mayor of Eugene and the Eu
gene chamber of commerce.
They have promised to give
their support and secure the
help of the townspeople.
A special “dean-up” day
is planned before the end of
this week in order that the
city may look its best.
The downtown section is go
ing to have some special dec
orations in the way of flags

Postholes Must be Dug by
Noon Today, According
To Constructs Chairman
An appeal is made by Rallies Bp
ping, chairman of the construction
committee for the frosh bonfire,
for every freshman who has any
vacant hours before noon today, to
turn out on Kincaid field to help
dig post holes. It is absolutely im
perative that these holes be dug be
fore noon today because the tele
phone company has offered to do
nate their services during the af
ternoon in order to erect the poles,
provided that all the holes have
been dug.
Each of the campus living organi
zations was appealed to for frosh
yesterday afternoon but only a
very few responded. If the bon
fire is to be built at all, the fresh
men must begin work immediately,
according to Epping, although ac
tual construction of the bonfire it
self will not begin until Thursday
Men representing the committee
will be at the site of the bonfire
each hour firing the forenoon and
all frosh are requested to report
to them.
Members of the materials com
mittee have been scouting around
Eugene looking for wood during the
past week and quite a quantity has
been lined up. Freshmen will be
excused from classes Friday and
can -give their undevided attention
to the construction, as the bonfire
must be completed before the rally
Friday night.
The following men will be ex
pected to report at Kincaid field
for work during their vacant per
iods tomorrow. They will Teport
to the person in charge. The names
of those who fail to report will be
turned over to the Order of the
“O”, and great will be the weep
ing and wailing of those who hold
rendezvous on the library steps.

Tryouts for Varsity Team
Set for November 8
Tryouts for the women’s varsity
debate team will be held on Satur
day, November 8. The question to
be used for the trial is the one
whieh is being used in doughnut
debate and is on the subject which
will be employed in the final inter
collegiate debate. It is: “Resolved,
! that the immigration act should be
amended to permit the Japanese to
enter this country on the same basis
on which the Europeans are now ad
The plan for the carrying out of
the tryouts is similar to that used
for the men’s trial. Each contest
ant may prepare a seven to eight
minute speech on any phase of the
subject which she may choose. Af
tor she has given her speech she
will be questioned on the subject
for five or six minutes.
If the . number of aspirants for
the team equals that which ap
peared for the men’s varsity, the
tryouts will not be completed in
one day. As there is a possibility
I of including California in the de
bates this year, women’s forensics
call for a decided interest.
Dr. J. R. Wetherbee, who was the
director of physical education here
from 1894-1897 and who is now a
Portland physician, will give an il
lustrated lecture . tonight on
“Around the World Cruise.” This
will start at 8 o’clock and will be
in the chamber of commerce. Ad
mission charges are 50 cents. Dr.
Wetherbee is a brother of Frank R.
Wetherbee, prominent business man
of this city. The two brothers made
the trip around the world last win
i ter on the steamer “Franconia.”
wuiuuiuuig, u peppy umse pa
rade and the biggest rally
ever, not to mention the Home
coming lunch, the big football
game pn Saturday, and then
the Homecoming dance, has
been thought of, so that the alums
and former students who come back
to the campus for these three days,
will be on the go every minute,
from the time that Carl Dahl and
his committee welcome them at the
train, until they wearily embark
again on Sunday, conceding this to
be the best Homecoming ever.
Committee Needs Care
The welcoming committee still
needs more cars, as every train is
to be met, and each house is urged
to donate one, if it is possible. The
alums will be taken immediately to
the Administration 'building where
they will register and get their com
plimentary tickets to all the events
on the program except the game.
Hal Lundberg has about 400
rooms lined up, and anyone desir
ing information concerning them is
asked to communicate with him.
This committee is also giving out
identification tags to the students
and alums, who will receive them
at the information desk on their
arrival. These tags are being sent
to Washington for all students who
expect to come down here.
The noise parade will start about
7:15 from the Armory and will
march directly to Kincaid field
where the rally will begin about
8:,‘10. The rally, under the direc
tion of Freddie Martin, promises
to be a most enthusiastic and ear
splitting affair, and will be lit up
by the light from the mammoth
Frosh bonfire. If it doesn’t rain,
there will be two street dances after
the rally.
Luncheon is Planned
On Saturday, the first affair will
be Mio luncheon from 11:30 until
1:30. The committee is still silent
in regard to the menu but the or
ders for the food are in, and from
the size of them no one should go
hungry. The Men’s Glee Club and
the band will furnish music during
the hours of serving. The lunch
I eon will be held outside if the
j weather permits, otherwise it will
■be in the men’s gymnasium.
The ticket sales for the game are

steady methodical fashion to trounce

Not only in score but also in

contest are rather surprising.
