    Big Homecoming
Report for
Bonfire Duty
Three Days Remain Before
Oregon and Washington
Meet in Annual Contest
Reserve Backfield Men Are
Trained by Maddock;
New Plays are Perfected
By Wilbur Wester
In the short space of three days,
the Oregon football team faces its
second big game of the season.
Having made a fairly respectable
showing against Stanford, the var
sity faces a similar hard situation
in meeting the undefeated Huskies !
on Saturday.
The Washington team has gone 1
through the season so far with a
clean sTate, and the only remaining
eleven capable of stopping the pen
nant-bound Huskies, are the teams
from Eugene and Berkeley.
Huskies Lack Offensive
With a wealth of material, in
numerable lettermen and a veteran
coach, it looked like a big year for
the Washingtonians. They had
little difficulty in running up im
pressive scores against Montana,
Willamette and Whitman; but when
they met the Aggies, the Huskies
showed decided weakness against a
strong team. Although plainly out
playing the Beavers, Washington
lacked the offensive power to run
up the “expected” score against
the O. A. 0. team.
At the beginning of the season,
Oregon was rated as a soft spot in
the coast schedule; but with the
surprisingly rapid improvement
made by Maddock’s men, coast
teams are considering Oregon as a
real stumbling block in the way of
their pennant aspirations.
Workouts are Held
Even in a chilling wind with a
driving rain, Maddock sent Ms war
riors through a snappy scrimmage
with the yearlings, yesterday after
noon. The squad showed plenty of
speed considering the raw weather.
The scrimmage was held mainly for
the purpose of perfecting some new
plays to use in the big Homecoming
The Oregon eleven’s 40-6 seore
against Whitman was rolled' up by
the use of only four plays, and a
more powerful offensive will un
doubtedly be brought out by the
varsity when they work out several
new and baffling plays to use
against Washington.
Backfield Men Developed
At the present time, Maddock is
developing a sespectable string of
reserve backfield men, and against
the hefty Huskies, these extra baek
field men will probably be called
into play. George Mimnaugh will
probably play a fairly important
part in Saturday’s contest, as Mim
naugh is now getting his punts off
in good style, and exchanging of
pnnts will no doubt be one of the
features of the game with the
northern squad.

Stand In Y. M. Hut
Will Sell Coffee,
Hot Dogs and Milk
Food for the body as well as
for the soul is now obtainable at .
the campus Y. M. Co A. with* the
establishment today of a hot
lunch counter in the hut.# Sizzling
hot dogs, hamburgers, coffee,
milk and other things that hungry
students desire, to appease their
mid-dav appetites, will be sold.
James Stewart will be chef
d ’hote of the establishment and
he promises warm lunches to all
who have a few nickels to spend, j
A candy counter is already in
operation at the hut, but the many j
students who make the “Y” j
their headquarters have long de- |
sired something more substantial j
and the authorities have decided
to fulfill this desire by opening
the “dog” stand. Low prices
and high quality and quantity
will be the features of the busi
ness, said Stewart.
Committees are Appointed
To Handle Badge Sale
The Women’s League is sending!
an urgent request to all freshman
girls to come out and do their *
share toward keeping up the
honor of their class by making the ,
little green and yellow pennants for j
wear during Homecoming week-end. j
Unless help is received jvithout '
delay, there may be no pennants to ;
greet the eyes of the old grads
when they" return Friday and Sat
So far there are only about 1300
pennants made, but this is only ,
about half the number needed. The ,
freshman girls, under the freshman
commission headed by Mary Don- j
aldson, are expected to do the sew
ing, the time for which is not re- j
stricted to any hour of the day or 1
evening, so all the girls in the
class should show their loyalty by,
offering assistance in the work at
the Bungalow at every spare hour ,
Anna Joe Witt, head or the wont,
has appointed committees composed
of freshmen, headed by a sopho
more, to sell the pennants Friday
and Saturday. Catlierii>e Struplere
and Lucile Pearson have charge of
the sale at the trains; Beatrice
Peters and Mary Fau Yurpiliat
with their committees will be sta
tioned in front of the Administra
tion building; Esther Setters will
supervise the girls in the different
living organizations; Marian Hors
fall will be in charge at the campus
luncheon and Francis Morgan at
the football game.
All Oregon students as well . as
alumni are expected to wear these
pennants to the Homecoming game,
in accordance with an old .tradition
on the campis. The price, as usual,
vvill be 5 cents, and the proceeds
of the sale vs ill go to the general
treasury fund of the Women’s
The members of Phi Delta Kappa,
honorary education society, will
hold their first meeting of the year
Wednesday evening at the College
Side Inn at 6 o 'clock.
Art lovers are looking forward i
with mueh interest to an exhibi- !
tion of the oil paintings of Tokio
Ueyama, a Japanese artist living
< in Los Angeles. They were shipped
by express from Los Angeles last
Saturday, and it is hoped that they
will be here for hanging in the
small gallery of the Arts building
by the last of the week.
Ueyama is a Japanese with botlij
an American and a European train
ing, and does portraits, landscapes,
and still lifes. A total of 25 can- i
vases will be included in the ex
At the time of the Japanese earth- 1
quake last year a group of Ueya- 1
mas paintings were on the way to 1
Japan for a government exhibition, 1
but were lost in the disaster. He j
has exhibited in the United States !
iii tlie galleries of Pennsylvania,
Texas, and California.
This artist was a fellow student
of N. B. Zane, University of Ore
gon instructor in fine arts when
they attendedj 'the Peundylvaiijia
Academy of Fine Arts.
A realist in execution, Ueyama
yet has a touch of the oriental in
his design. A still life by him is
in the possession of Professor Zane,
and hangs on the wall of his studio'
on the campus. It is rich in blue
and orange and gold, in the texture
of satin and of porcelain.
This is the opening exhibition for
the gallery, though others are being
scheduled for later in the year. A
collection of prints, the property of
the school of architecture and allied
arts, has been shown, however.
Jeanette Calkins Reminds
Former Oregon Students
To Register on Arrival
Subscriptions to Alumni
Magazine are Included
On Enrollment Cards
“Be sure to remember to register j
when you get on the campus, anil)
don’t forget the alumni meeting on 1
Saturday,” says Jeanette Calkins,
alumni secretary, to all the alumni [
and former students who are com- |
ing to the campus this week end.
A new system of registration has
been introduced, which is much
quicker and more efficient than the
old method of inscribing the name i
in the big book. The registering j
is to be done on cards upon which j
the graduate will write his name,!
address, class, and ooeupation, and ^
on the reverse side will be an ap- !
plication for subscription to “Old
Oregon,” the alumni magazine, j
These cards are to be filed alpha
betically as soon as they are filled J
out, which will facilitate the work ;
of looking up those who are, here, j
Election Date Changed
After Homecoming, the cards will j
be used to check the addresses in
the alumni files and for news notes
in “Old Oregon.” The booth will
be in the administration building
and will be open from 1 until 2
on Friday and all day Saturday, ex
cept during the game.
The importance of the alumni
meeting in Guild hall on Saturday

A complete picture schedule for
the 1925 Oregana, including all the
organizations on the campus, has
been compiled and will bo followed
without change. Tn view of this
fact it is absolutely necessary that
each house make the greatest pos
sible effort to have its members at
the studio on the assigned date, ac
cording to those in charge.
With one organization a day
scheduled, the entire list will be
completed a few days before the
term examinations, and as there
will be no opportunity to have pic
tures taken after the vacations, it
is essential that students adhere to
the dates set. The new location of
the Kennell-Ellis studio is Ml
Willamette, next to the Bex the
atre. It will remain open in the
evenings until 9 o’clock to accomo
date those who have not time to
pose during the day.
Each week the names of the or
ganizations who are scheduled to
have pictures taken during the re
mainder of that week, will be pub
lished. The entire schedule is:

Memory Plays
Baffling Trick
For the first time in history,
the utterly unheard of has oc
eurred. Dean Straub met one of
hie old students from the early
daye of the University and didn’t
know him. The manner of the
thine was this:
The dean was raking leaves
from his lawn last Saturday,
when a car stopped out in front
of hie home and a middle-aged
man eame up to him. “Dean
Straub,” he said, “you have the
reputation of knowing every body
who was once a student here.
Who am If” Dean Straub looked
at him, and though he now in
eiete the face was familiar, at
the time he couldn’t place the
man. "Turn around to the side,”
he (aid, but even that did not
Hie dean had to admit he was
baffled. It was the first time
in his life ho had ever failed.
“I'm Frank Neill,” began the
mam, and then the dean’s memory

he said. “You left here 40 years
ago, but you were only 15 years
old then, and your face has
Musicians Prove Popular;
Will Lead Parade
The R. O. T. C. band will be . one
Of .the big features for Homecoming
this year. Committees at the R. O.
T. C. headquarters this week are
malting arrangements for the band
vw « f > in miin uu uvi umuuiuutui
This has been the first year that
the band has proved popular enough
at Homecoming to be in demand
for almost every occasion. It will
make its first week-end appear
ance at the parade Friday night,
when it will lead the campus noise
makers. Later in the evening the
musicians will go to the bonfire and
render a few selections. Saturday
morning they will play a concert
during the campus luncheon, and I
give the students and visitors a i
few classical numbers. In the after- j
noon the band will lead the Order
of the O around the field and will
play during the game.
There is a great possibility that
the band will take a trip next
spring, depending upon the success
they achieve. It is planned that
this trip will take them through
the larger cities surrounding Eu
'gene and will probably last a week.
“There is no doubt but that we will
be successful,” said Andrew
Landles, the director, “as the man
ner and spirit in which the boys
are playing will surely bring suc
cess.” They have also received
support from the music department.
Some new stunt features are
promised by the band this year,
which will include quartet work, a
jass orchestra and special solos.
Hilton Bose and Curtiss Burton
have been appointed to take charge
of this work.
Dr. F. L. Shinn of the chemistry
department, who has been quite ill
for soase time past, is reported as
still confined to his home and un
sMe to conduct his classes although
his condition is materially improved.
It is hoped that he will be able to
resume his duties in the near future.
Dr. O. F. Stafford, head of the
chemistry department, returned the
first of the week from a several
days trip in California.
There were two talks given last
week end by two members of the
extension division staff. Dr. Dan
Clark, asssitant director of the ex
tension division, spoke to a Doug
las eennty teacher’s zone meeting
at Drain on “Education for Citizen
ship.” Mozelle Hair, head of the
esrrespondence study department,
spoke to a parent and teacher’s
meeting at Shedd, Friday night.
Plans in Detail for Coming
Week-end to be Outlined
By Committee Chairman
Cups for Noise Machines
And Most Original Sign
To be Shown on Stage
Homecoming from every angle,
and all its phases, -will be the sub
ject for the annual Homecoming as
sembly on Thursday at 11 o’clock
in the Woman’s building.
All of the seventy-three members
of the Homecoming committee who
have given so much time and energy
towards making the week end a suc
cess, will be on the stage, as well
as both glee clubs who will sing
several numbers.
Chairman to Speak
Colonel John Leader, who is ex
pected from Vancouver, B. C., will
be the principal speaker. Homecom
ing would not seem complete with
out this staunch Oregon supporter,
and faculty and students alike will
welcome this opportunity to greet
Randall Jones, president of the
student body, and Jack High, chair
man of the Homecoming committee,
will outline the whole program for
Homecoming. Besides the hosts of
alumni and former students who
will return to the campus, and the
thousand Washington students there
will be about fifty Michigan alums
who are coming here to see the
team of their former college mate,
Coach Joe Maddock, in action.
The two cups, one to be awarded
for the best Homecoming sijjn and
the other for the best noise making
machine, will be on display. Stu
dents are reminded that not over
$10 is to be spent on the Home
coming and that the prize will go
to the house which erects the most
original and artistic sign, which at
the same time demonstrates the
real Homecoming spirit.
Tags to be Given Out
This is the only chance that stu
dents will have to get their identi
fication tags which will admit them
to the luncheon on Saturday. These
tags are to be given to the alums
on their registration at the Admin
istration building. About a thous
and of them have been sent to the
Washington students.
Every student in the University
is especially urged to come to this
assembly, to get the spirit of Home
coming, and to do his part towards
entertaining the hundreds of visi
tors who will be the guests of the
campus for the week end.
At the regular meeting of the
Technical Society in Deady hall this
evening, Dean Colin V. Dyment will
deliver a lecture on why the tech
nical man should have a command of
good English.
The lecture will be of special
interest to technical students and
pre-engineers. All others wishing
to attend are invited. The lec
tures given under the auspices of
the Technical society so far this
year have proven very interesting
and have been attended by larger
audiences than those of last year.
Marian Taylor, who graduated
from the school of business adminis
tration with the class of 1922, has
accepted a position as secretary to
Congressman Willis C. Hawley, and
will start work December 1. Miss
Taylor, following her graduation,
worked in the office of the internal
revenue collector at Portland for a
year, and later became appoint
ment bureau and departmental sec
retary of the school of education.
Her home is in Eugene.
