Beautiful Venus
Cold and Cloudy*
Says Astronomer
Venus, the beautiful, is as cold
as she is lovely, says Professor E.
H. McAlister of the mechanics and
astronomy department. Although
nearer the sun by millions of miles,
the temperature of the planet is
always near the freezing point.
The cause for this phenomenon has
not yet been determined by C. E.
St. John, Mount Wilson astronomer,
whose latest discovery has (broken
down all previous beliefs that Venus
must necessarily be a hot place
because of her proximity to the sun.
The planet Venus is covered by
a cloudy atmosphere all the time,
sa that it is difficult to fix a defi
nite point on it for observation. Dr.
St. John’s discoveries have cleared
up many erros in the minds of as
tronomers who have been unable to
penetrate the fog successfully
Mt. Jefferson Is Scaled On
North By Four
, Dr. Edwin T. Hodge, of the geo
logy department, returned to his
classes this fall after spending sev
eral weeks of the summer in geo
logic investigations and studies.
Accompanied by John F. Bovard,
Dean of the school of physical edu
cation, Dr. Hodge spent the first
two weeks in August in studying
the area around Mt. Jefferson. The'
mountain itself, its glaciers, rocks
and lakes were studied.'
Dr. Hodge climbed the mountain
front various sides. He was one of
a party of four who reached the
top from the north side. As far as
is known, this is the only party who
have succeeded in scaling the moun
tain from that .side. On this trip
one of tlio men fell 300 feet into a
crevasse and broke his leg in two
places. . It. was quite a task, ac
cording to Dr. Hodges, to get the
injured man to the foot of tho
Dr. Hodge intends to make a'
topographical map of Mt. Jefferson
and to study the rocks more intensi
vely. He will also write an article
dealing with the composition of tho
mountain and the effect of it on

Three Sisters to come from the press
sometime this month. The title of
hie book is “Mt. Multnomah, An

Every year the infirmary is con
fronted with several epidemics and
this year js to be no exception, ac
cording to information from that
place. In fact, one epidemic has been
weathered already this year, and
that just because fhe students in
sisted on breaking in their new
shoes in a hurry. Case after case of
blstered and sore feet were handled,
some of them being of a rather
serious nature due to infection.
From all indications it is going
to be a good year for the department
Which will soon move into
the “shack” next to the Journalism
building. According to Jthe car
penters working on the buildng, it
will be ready to be occupied in about
ten days. Meanwhile the infirmary,
Iocafed on Onyx street, is open to
all calls that students wish to make..
Houses Asked To Observe

Only Two Women’s Groups
Change Locations; Visits

Open house, yie big handshaking
contest of the year when all the
men’s houses travel around to all
the women’s houses for a ten-minute
visit and dance at each place, is
scheduled for tonight. Bill James
and Hulda Guild are in charge of
the arrangements and invite every
one to take part in ‘order to make
the evening a success.
Tradition IS Old
Last year the evening started at
7:00 o’clock, but tonight activity
will start promptly at 6:45, because
of the number of houses and the
length of time allowed. Men are
urged to follow their schedules close
ly so as to avoid mixups and delays.
These schedules will be delivered
some time today. They allow ton
minutes visiting at each house with
five . minutes travelling time in
which to get from one house to an
Open house taking place the week
after pledging, is an institution of
long standing at the University. Its
purpose is to foster friendships be
tween men’s and women’s . houses
and . to enable fresmen to got ac
quainted with the different organi
zations on the campus.
Cooperation is Asked
Bill James calls attention to the
fact that there are 21 women’s
houses on the campus and 19 men’s
houses. Consequently, he says, there
will be some time during the eve
ning when each of the women’s
houses will have a half-hour wait
but no one wjll be skipped at hny
The Alpha Chi Omegas will be at
the Sigma Nu house and the Gam
ma Phi Betas, on account of their
new house being unfinished, will be
at the Beta Theta Pi house. These
are the only changes in location.
Bill James again urges that every
one cooperate to put the affajr
over with the characteristic friend
ly feeling that will make the eve
ning a success in every particular.

Don Zimmerman Receives
Honorable Mention
“When the United States military
| academy at West Point commends
| an ‘humble plebo’ or fourth class
man within two months after he
puts on his uniform his state has a
right to be proud of him.” Such
was the beginning of a story writ
ten for the Portland Oregonian by
Charles L. Gridley, Washington
staff .correspondent concerning Don
Zimmerman, of Eugene, graduate of
the University in 1924.
ISfot only has Zimmerman, who is
the son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Zim
merman of 827 Eleventh avenue,
been complimented on his excellent
scholastic showing since lie entered
the academy, but has shown promise
as an athlete as well, the article

Senator Eobert N. Stanfield, act
ing through his secretary, E. J.
Adams, made the appointment on
June 24 and Zimmerman had to to
port for duty on July 1. Captain
•T. O’. Murray of the University E.
O. T. O. was instrumental in secur
ing the appointment.
During both high school and col
lege, Zimmerman’s grades were ex
cellent. This fact together with the
limited time caused the West Point
authorities to admit Zimmerman
without any previous mentality ex
amination, when a certificate of his
grades was forwarded. He passed;

of the two tall irten’s companies. He
is twentieth from the first tall ]

While at the University, Don ma

elors and master’s degree in six,
years. He played basketball three j
years and baseball three years. He
captained the team at Eugene in his
senior year. “The baseball eoaeh

Aspirants Will Be Judged
By Ex-Yell King Before
All Student Spectators
New Yell In Process of
Evolution Has Volume
And Zip, Says Leader
Rah, Rah, Oregon!
Rah, Rah, Oregon!
Oskey, Wow, 'Wow!
That ’8 the yell that will inaugur*
ate Oregon’s football team this af
ternoon under the leadership of Tell
King Freddie Martin. The yelling
thousands will have their first work
out of the year, and the freshmen
their first participation in making
Oregon spirit, in preparation for the
T>ig yelling that will come later on
in the season. “Just a yell given
at proper times this season is going
to make, or break Oregon's team!
Bill Reinhart” Dick Smith and Baz
Williams are doing their share to
make the team and the rest is up
to the students. There’s no better
wav to show your support than to
yell,” says Martin.
As an added feature of today’s
cheering practice will be the try
out for two-assistants for Martin’s
staff. Over a dozen men \#tll re
port for the tryouts and wifi be re
quired to lead two or three yells
each. The winner will bo chosen
entirely on how he conducts the
rooting. Delbert Obertouffer, for
mer yell king, will be. the, judge.
The assistants will be chosen to take
the place of George Shaeffers, who
is not in school and .Tack Seabrook,
whose leg injury keeps him from
strenuous exercise.
New Yell Planned
Tell King Martin has a surprise
for the rooters. He and Obertouffer
have been planning a now yell. It
has all the zip, all the baek tingling
qualities, all the volume, that the
other yells have, and a little bit
more, according to Martin. He is
going to announce this new one
after the tryouts.
Over half of Oregon’s games are
on Hayward field. Next week-end
comes that hard mix with Idaho,
which last year broke the 14 year
jinx. The yell king wants everyone
out. He hopes to rock old Judkins
point by the volumn of “Oskies.”
Voices with four month’s rest
should be able to crack, he declares.
French, in its various class forms,?
has become so popular upon the
campus this fall that an extra in-j
structor has been called in to serve
the overflow of students.
Miss Cornelia B. Pipes, graduate I
of the University of Oregon Tto- :
mance language department in 1924.1
has accepted tlje position created 1
through t^is influx of entrants, and j
will arrive in Eugene in time to j
meet her classes next Monday morn
Miss Pipes made an enviable re-!
cord in the French department while
on the campus and has since been i
studying under a noted French tutor.:
She has just been appointed French '
instructor in a large Chinese uni-i
versity, but turned down this offer !
to come to her alma mater.

New Students on Campus !
Number 1085 To Date
Twenty-seven hundred and sixty
students have taken out registration
material to date on the Eugene

of the enrollment for tho entire
three terms last year, and with
the medical school total of 210 at .
Portland, the University of Oregon ,
full-time enrollment will be close ;
to the 3,000 mark this week. The |
enrollment for the fall, winter, and

a comfortable figure.

2760 Eugene campus registrants may : •
riot finish the routine of entering! i
Masses, 2652 aro already fully:

with several day remaining for the ,
late arrivals to comply routine re-;
gistration formalities. Graduate

mer term at Oregon was 1012, so
that the total registration for fall,
winter, spring and summer terms
will exceed 4,000.
Enrollment at Oregon this year
breaks several rocords. There wero
2531 enrolled for the entire fall last
year at Eugene, so this fall’s total
shows a new mark, as will tho year
ly total. New students on the Eu-,
gene campus—freshmen and ad
vanced students from other insti
tutions—number 1085, approxima- '
tely 200 more than entered Oregon 1
