This Week—Southern Cali
fornia May Come to Grief
in Securing Games.
L= By Sports Staff ■
. Again there is trouble in the
Coast camp. A gale blew up from
the south, and the effects of it are
being felt all up and down the con- '
ference. Due to the protestation of
a U. S. C. player, the Trojans pride
was hurt; their behavior miffed the
Golden Gulf twins, and as a conse- !
quence, there’s nothing doing be
tween the far south and the Bears
and Cards from now on.
The other members of the con
ference have so far shown no par
tiality either way, saying simply,
that as far as they are concerned,
things will go on as before. This
is probably as it should be, but the
North has never been greatly con
cerned. Oregon has played U. 8.
C. only once, and other U. 8. C.
clashes with Northern teams have
been rather rare, never more than
one a seaso».
But what about the University
of Southern California? Cut off
from Stanford and California, they
will have a hard time trying for a
Coast championship from now o*,
since it will not be practicable to
schedule a full season with far
north elevens. They are quite brave
about it, however, and claim that
they can get all the football they
want with Eastern, Middle Western
and Southern teams.
The universities of Texas and
Oklahoma are about the same hours
jaunt away as is Seattle, or Pull
man, or far off Montana, while
negotiations have been under way
for some time for a “home and
home” game with Illinois. Notre
Dame comes out on New Year’s
day, and this can be repeated an
nually with some Eastern eleven.
But will this be incentive enough
for “big-time” football at the
southern school? Will they get the
turnout for such games—a turnout
that would equal conference game
It is the writer’s opinion that un
less peace is to come again in some
way, U. S. C. will be in a hard
way, athletically speaking. After
all, a championship is a big incen
tive, and a necessary incentive.
Without it sports are sure to pine
away. Here’s hoping that things
get patched up.
The great victory over Washing
ton has actually given rise to faint
hopes of a top place for Oregon in
the northwest, and possibly the
Coast conferences. Here’s how:
Washington must beat California,
Stanford must go down before the
Bears—and Oregon must win every
game from now on. It might come
out that way, who knows?
The hole in the Stanford sched
ule created by the U. S. C. action
has been filled by the University
of Utah. The Cards should have
little trouble with the Mormons at
Palo Alto Saturday.
Polo is being played at Oregon
Agricultural College again this
year. They will play a game with
the Seventh Infantry second team
Saturday morning of Homecoming
week end, November 22.
They expect to schedule with the
Portland Hunt club and Stanford
university, later in the year. Last
year the Cardinals came out on
the long end of the score.
Five men of last year’s squad
have returned to school and are
showing up well in practice. There
are also plenty of new men out but
few are real polo players. Nine
new polo ponies have been pur
chased and will arrive soon for ser
The University of Washington
equestrians are to hold a meeting
and discuss plans for the formation
of a polo team for 1925. The team
if formed would compete with army
teams in the state.
The Eastern football race settled |
down somewhat last Saturday when
Lafayette and Syracuse were knock- '
ed out of the undefeated class, leav-1
ing Pennsylvania as the only big
Eastern team which has not bitten
the dust as yet.
Pennsylvania was directly re
sponsible for the elimination of
Lafayette by a 6 to 3 defeat in
flicted on Franklin field, Philadel
phia. This gives Penn a good
chance to succeed to the mythical
championship of the east which
Yale and Cornell shared in 1923.
Syracuse was just the same as
eliminated by reason of the 7 to 7
tie with Pittsburg^ who had al

Faculty Committee
Authorizes Rally
For 1:15 Today
The Committee appointed by the
faculty to consider the holding of
extra rallies has authorized the
students to hold one on Thursday
afternoon to speed the team on its
way to Moscow for the game with
Idaho. The train leaves at 2:00
p. m. Consequently the rally will
have to be held during the 1:00
o ’clock hour, and all classes held
from one to two should be dis
missed. This does not include
2:15 classes.
Laboratory sections should begin
at 2:15 instead of 1:15, unless the
instructors and students make other
arrangements for taking care of the
matter. Students, the committee
says, should be able to be back on
the campus shortly after 2:15, and
instructors are requested to make
allowances for tardiness where it
seems that reasonable diligence has
been observed.
Three Named Day Editors;
Other Places Filled
Several changes in the Emerald
staff were announced yesterday by
the editor, Don Woodward.
Those who have received new po
sitions are: day editors—Lillian
Baker, Katherine Kressman, Anna
Jerzyk; upper news staff—Eugenia
Strickland, Betty Cady, Sol Abram
son; night editor—Alfred Boice;
news staff—Esther Davis, Lilah
McMurphv, John Black, Jack Hemp
stead, Barbara Blyth, Walter Cush
man; sports staff—Richard Syring,
Richard Godfrey, Donald Osborne.
A general staff meeting was held
yesterday afternoon at 4:15 in the
Journalism building. Dean Allen,
head of the school of journalism,
gave a short talk. Edward Miller,
managing editor, told of plans for
the betterment of the Emerald.
The Oregon debate team will be
entered in a triangular debate with
Washington and Idaho this year in
stead of in the Washington, Oregon,
Stanford debate originally planned.
Stanford finds it impossible to en
ter the meet this year because of
the expense incurred in the trip
north. Forensics have already
called for a greater expenditure
than the college had planned.
This debate with Idaho and
Washington will take place on
March 5. Where it will be held has
not as yet been decided. The ques
tion for the debate is: Revived,
that Congress by a two thirds vote
shall have power to overrule deci
sions of the supreme court declar
ing acts of Congress unconstitution
The team to enter this debate will
probably be (chosen from the squad
that is now working on debate with
a few possible additions.
The Frosh and Rooks will stage
their annual cross country run next
Saturday just before the opening
whistle of the football game is
sounded. The Babes have been
training hard and will have to be
at their best to uphold the honor
of their class.
Tryouts were held yesterday
afternoon over the course. The
first five men to finish will com
pose the team. They are Peterkin,
Kelly, Pearson, Powell and Leland.
The time was about 12 minutes.
The class numerals will probably
be given to the men if they come
out winners in the race.
The course is about two and one
half miles long, running from Hay
ward field out around the country
and back onto the field for the
The Rooks are coming over with
a strong aggregation of long dis
tance men and are prepared to give
the frosh a real run for the honors.
Prof. Howe Outlines Local
Attitude on California
Stanford-U. S. C. Quarrel
Southern Hoop Schedule
Expected to Suffer as
Result of Controversy
When Stanford and California
broke off athletic relations with
Southern California last Saturday,
because Southern California insist
ed on playing Cole, big tackle and
one of its star linemen, in spite of
California’s protest that he was a
professional, they did so without
first consulting other members of
the conference or inquiring into
their opinion as to his eligi
bility; consequently, it is a battle
to be waged between the three
schools alone, and Oregon will main
tain a policy of neutrality and si
lence, Professor H. C. Howe, Ore
gon ’s coast conference representa
tive said yesterday.
“There is nothing in the confer
ence rules that says that one team
can not break off relations with
another,’’ Professor Howe stated,
“so California and Stanford are
within their rights. As far as Ore
gon is concerned, Southern Califor
nia has a bona fide rating, until
it has been proved that the Los
Angeles school has broken eligibil
ity rules.
Oregon is Careful
“Oregon has always been very
careful to live up to the letter of
the rules and because of that no
Oregon player ever has been pro
tested. The question of the
eligibility of Cole may not come
up at the next conference meeting
to be held in Portland in Decem
ber, unless one of the southern mem
bers brings it up for a vote or
Professor Howe, the sole member
to represent a school since the con
ference was organized in 1915, has
been besieged with questions as to
what Oregon was going to do about
the matter. He has been asked re
peatedly if Oregon’s failure to
play Southern California since its
admission to the conference was
due to the fact that Oregon did not
think that Southern California ad
hered strictly to the conference
rules as to eligibility of players.
“Oregon’s failure to schedule a
game with Southern California
either this or last year is due to
the fact that both schools have had
full schedules. We may schedule
Southern California next year, or in
1926. We played them once—sev
eral years ago in Los Angeles.
“I am sorry that Southern Cali
fornia canceled its game with Stan
ford Saturday,’’ Dr. Howe said.
“I feel certain that the wrinkles
would have been ironed out at our
next meeting.”
Trouble Over Cole
The trouble between the southern
schools arose when Southern Cali
fornia insisted on using William
Cole at tackle last Saturday against
California. Cole is said to have
assisted in coaching a high school
in California for which he received
pay. California claims to have a
photograph of a check given to
Cole as payment for his services.
Had California and Stanford pro
tested the player to the conference
his eligibility record would have
been checked up immediately and,
if guilty, he would have been barred
from further conference competi
tion. As it is, California and Stan
ford took the matter into their own
hands, and unless either one enters
a protest at the December meeting
of the conference, there will be
little possibility of patching up the
differences of the southern schools.
While breaking off negotiations
with Southern California will not
have much effect on the football
situation, it practically will disrupt
the basketball conference. Hereto
fore the six northern teams, Oregon,
Oregon Aggies, Washington, Wash
ington State, Idaho and Montana
played in one section and Southern
California, California and Stanford
in another. The winners of the
two sections played a post-season
series for the conference title and
the champion was sent east to rep
resent the Pacific coast.
This year it will be hard to de

Twenty-two Men Make Up
Squad Departing to Play
Idaho Eleven Saturday
“Skippy” Stivers’ Aerial
Attack Will be Feature
Of the Vandals’ Offense
When the Oregon eleven descends
on the Vandal camp this Saturday,
it may prove to be an important
turning point in Lemon-Yellow foot
ball history. The importance of
the contest cannot be over-stressed
inasmuch as it will bo a battle to
see whether Oregon or Idaho is to
remain in the lend of the North
west conference.
The varsity is leaving at 2 o’clock
this afternoon for the scene of ac
tion at Moscow, determined to
snatch a verdict from the mighty ]
By virtue of the extremely close
score and undeserved defeat at the
hands of the Cardinals, and also by
the brilliant victory over the O. A.
C. eleven, Idaho probably has the
edge on Oregon according to sev
eral well-kn^wn sport critics.
Without a doubt, the Vandals
have a dangerous outfit, and when
“Skippy” Stivers opens up his
aerial attack, the opposition has
reason to worry. In the Idaho
Aggie tilt, Matthews’ men won by
no other means than by passes.
Even from behind their own goal
line, Stivers shot the ball with de
liberate accuracy into the hands of
his team-mates.

Several valuable old books which
were ordered by Prof. H. C. Howe
for use in his advanced classes in
English literature have just been
received at the library from Eng
land. There is already a fair
sized collection of old books in the
vault at the library, the oldest one
dated 1492, according to M. II.
Douglass, librarian, but they add a
few from time to time.
“A General History of ■ the
Stage” contains memoirs of most
of the principal performers that ap
peared on the English and Irish'
stage for the fifty years previous
to the time the book was written,
which was 1749. These were col
lected by W. R Chetwood, who was
for 20 years prompter to his ma
jesty’s company of comedians in
London. “Bolingbroke’s letters on
the Study and Use of History” in
two volumes by Henry St. John,
otherwise known as Lord Viscount
Bolingbroke, was published in 1752.
Three volumes of Philosophical
Works by Robert Boyle, Esq., dated
1738, are abridged, methodized and
disposed under the general heads
of Physics, statics, pneumatics, natu
ral history, chemistry and medicine
and the whole is illustrated with
notes by Peter Shaw, M. D. “The
Works of Sir William Davenant,”
1673, containing poems and plays
poetical and dramatic that were
| compiled out of the author’s original
I copies is the most valuable of the
i lot received—valued around $30.
j“A View of the Principal Deistical
Writers,” 1766, includes those that
! appeared in England in the century
| when the book was written and that
; previous to its writing. It is edited
j by John Leland, D. D.
Jack Myers, yell king of last
year who was a visitor on the cam
pus during Hcmocoming week-end,
remained until Wednesday for a
visit with friends on the campus.
Rooters Hats To
Be At Rally Says
Martin, Yell King
<<T> BING your rooter’s
-TJhat,” says the Yell King-.
“When the boys leave we
want them to see a solid block
. of lemon-yellolw and green.
The only way this can be ac
complished is for every man
to flash his colors. ”
The women of the Univer
sity are expected to be pres
ent in force, says the King.
“Don’t forget,” he says, “that
winning this game may give
Oregon a chance to win the
Northwest conference and to
tie the Coast conference. Al
so, we must maintain the fam
ous Oregon ‘jinx’ over Idaho.”
Committee Will Solicit;
Goal Put at $1800
Plans for the annual Y. W. C. A.
finance drive among the students
of the University are being formu
lated by Eloise Buck, chairman of
the finance department, and Miss
Florence Magowan, general secre
tary of the association. The drive
will be launched the first of next
The goal for which the committee
is striving is $1800 and both Miss
Buck and Miss Magowan feel con
fident that this can be raised. A
committee composed of a represen
tative from each house and several
from the town girls will solicit tho
women students for pledges of fi
nancial support. This committee
will be announced later.
Tho budget calls for more money
than last year but this is due to
the increase in the expenses of tho
association. The fixing of the bun
galow, which includes a new fur
nace for the building, is a large
Another big expense is that of
bringing speakers to the campus for
the Y. W. C. A. meetings. The most
prominent speaker to be brought
this year will be Sherwood Eddy,
a prominent figure in the interna
tional Y. M. C. A. and in tho Stu
dent Volunteer movement. The as
sociation is combining with the lo
cal Y. M. C. A. in arranging for
his visit to the campus.
The budget, providing for these
expenditures, was formed last
spring by a committee composed of
Florence Buck, president of the as
sociation; Mrs. Bruce Gif fen, presi
dent of the advisory board; Barbara
Booth, treasurer of ting board;
Eloise Buck, chairman of the fin
ance department; and Margaret
Seymour, last year’s chairman.
“The Platoon Plan of Public
School Education” is the title of a
radio lecture to be broadcast to
morrow night, November 7, at 8
o’clock from station KGW of the
Morning Oregonian. This is the
regular Friday evening radio lec
ture service furnished by the exten
sion division. •
Professor Charles A. Rice, in
structor in education at the Port
land center of the University ex
tension division, will give the radio
lecture. Professor Rice is also as
sistant-superintendent of the Port
land public schools.
Mr. Rice has had considerable ex
perience in directing the platoon
system in Portland schools. While
the new Washington high school
was being constructed the system
was used in the Lincoln high build
ing. One school used the building
in the morning from 8 until 12:30,
and the second used it during the
remainder of the afternoon. The
plan has been used in Chicago for
several years. It helps to solve the
problem of housing the classes.
Every Student Expected to
Turn out for Rally;
Class Will be Dismissed
Big Serpentine will Form
And March to S. P. Depot;
Order of ‘O’ Men to Lead
Every student of the University
is expected to turn out today at
one o’clock for the pro-Yandal game
rally. One o’clock classes will be
dismissed so that all may be on
hand to swell the pep feat.
The big serpentine will form at
1:15 at Thirteenth and Alder
streets, and will bo composed of
the entire student body, all loyal
faculty members, and all alumni
who can get there. The band will
be out in force, and Order of the
“O” men will lead the line of
march to the Southern Pacific de
pot. Arriving there in good season
the “gang” will give its last God
speed as the train pulls out at 2
o ’clock.
“After going through the fight
against the Huskies last Saturday,
the team is somewhat bruised up,”
declared Freddie Martin, yell lord,
“and it is imperative that all loyal
students be on hand this afternoon
to show the old fight, and urge
them on to another victory. It can
be done if all do their part.”
All one o’clock classes will be
dismissed, but students are expected
to meet their two o’clocks, say the
faculty, who have given assent to
the rally.
A foreign student department
with Sinforoso Padilla in charge,
has recently been inaugurated by
the Wesley club, University stu
dent organization of the First
Methodist church. The purpose of
this branch of the club is to induce
the foreign students on the campus
to attend the church services and
to become acquainted with the
other University students.
The University Bible classes and
the Sunday evening young people’s
meetings of the church are held un
der the auspices of tho club. The
Bible classes meet in the morning
and are divided into two groups,
one for women and one for men.
At 5:30 Sunday eveningB, the
regular meetings of the organisa
tion are held. The program usually
consists of a devotional service, and
a social hour during which the stu
dents visit and become better ac
quainted with one another. Light
refreshments are served by the
members of the club.
The Wesley club was organized
in the spring term of 1923 and
Lester Turnbaugh was elected first
president. He held office during
all of last year, the present offi
cers being elected last spring. The
officers of the club this year are:
James Stewart, president; Kirk
Bolliger, vice-president, Evelyn
Schenck, secretary; and Leah Kib
by, treasurer.
The purpose of the organization;
according to Dell Tedrow, chairman
of the membership and publicity
committee, is to provide religious
and social activity for University
students. The membership is not
limited to members of the Metho
dist church, said Tedrow, and all
students are invited to attend the
