    Huge Pep Rally Forcasts Victory For! Oregon
Traditional School Spirit
Comes to Life In Parade
And Huge Pep Assembly
“Make ’em Feel Spirit And
We Will Win,” is Plea
Of Coach Billy Rinehart
Victory looms today!
Oregon’s “thundering thousand,”
as of old, came to life anew last
nilght and with a gigantic rally,
combining a parade and an assem
bly, vowed defeat for the invading
Vandals today.
“Oregon spirit is here more than
it has ever been,” Billy Rinehart,
the varsity backfield coach, de
clared when he talked to the quiet,
hushed throng in the men’s gymna
sium, final scene of the rally. “Get
out there behind the team—make
’em feel the old spirit, and we’ll
Football Stock Above Par
And the “thundering thousand,”
almost two thousand, in reality,
answered with a mighty “yea-ea”
that it would. Oregon’s football
stock is liigh above par today.
“Fighting spirit id needed for
the team—Oregon’s got it,” “Dick”
Smith, Oregon’s head coach said
while “Baz” Williams, the line
coach, declared that 75 per cent of
Oregou’s games had been won On
fight alone.
The occasion for this fighting
verbosity came as the climax to the
tally parade, which, led by the new
B. O. T. C. 50 piece band, had start
ed at the Kappa Siig corner, wound
about over the campus and finally
■entered the gym. -Then the varsity
and coaches were brought in.
Parade Half-Mile Long
It was a real rally, all agreed.
“Bah! Bah! Oregon,” the Univer
sity’s traditional marching song,
might well have been called the
theme of ttye parading thousands,
but “Mighty Oregon,” “To Hell, To
Hell With All the Vandals,” and
“Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here,”
each added their touches of Oregon
Yell king “Freddie” Martin, with
■ his two recently appointed assist
ants, Fred Hendricks and “Bob”
Warner, made their presence known
at all times along the entire line
of the parade, which, it was esti
mated, was easily a half a mile in
“It was great,” -was Freddie’s
characterization after the rally.
“Bemember 2:05 o’clock in the cen
ter grandstand today, gang, and re
m'ember Oregon fight.”
The Fall tennis tournament nar
rowed down with the matches play
ed yesterday and everything is in
readiness for the final match com
ing Monday at one o’clock.
In the hectic match played yes

the majority of Bets played and de
feated Hartman, 6-3, 2-6, 6-3, 7-5.
The second match, between Cof
fin and Neer, terminated at the
■ end of the second set. The first
set went to Coffin 6-4 but Neer
took the second 9-7 The rest of
this match will be played off this
The winner of this match will

Mr. Douglass stated that the best
chances for positions in the library
are for those who have -had train
ing or experience elsewhere.
Of the older members of the staff,
Wilma Boisselier, Josephine Evans,
and Elizabeth Cheney have returned
as student assistants. Mabel Klock
ars. a part-time assistant in the
reserve department last year, is now

eral years has been a worker in the
circulation department has now
been transferred to the School of
Architecture, where she is now in
cliatge of the realing room.
The name of Francis B. Sayre,
son-in-law of Woodrow Wilson, is
suggested, in a dispatch from Salem
to an evening paper, as worthy of
consideration in connection with
the position of president of the
University of Oregon The origin
of the suggestion is not igiven, and
the statement is made that Mr.
Sayre is not a candidate for the
place and that the matter has not
been taken up with him. He is

Odd Fellow’s Band Leader
Comes to University
Highly Recommended
Department Created to Give
Instruction in Brass And
Woodwind Instruments
Creation of a department of brass
and woodwind instruments was an
nounced yesterday by Dean Lands
bury of the school of music. Al
fred Corwin, at present director of
the Odd Fellows Band of Eugene,
and a student of the Dammrosch
school for bandmasters, will give
instruction in this department,
which will be under the supervision
of Rex Underwood, head of the
Instruction Demanded
“There has been a large number
of calls for instruction in these in
struments,” the dean stated, “and
with the need of development of
material in the brass and woodwind
section for the University orchestra,
we deemed it advisable to add a
man to our staff to handle .this
work. In looking for a man to give
this work we were very fortunate
in finding, according to all recom
mendations and credentials pre
sented, just the type of person we
desire. We have every reason, to
believe that he will be a distinct
acquisition to local musical circles.
Has Had Expert Training
“Mr. Corwin served in the French
and United States arjnies in France
during the war,” continued Dean
Landsbury, “and was wounded
twice while serving at the Front.
•He spent several months in the hos
pital and was placed on the inac
tive' list as a result of his injuries.
He was then sent to the Dammrosch
school for bandmasters, and to the
bandmasters school in Chicago
where he was given expert instruc
tion in band music. Besides band
music, he has had work in compo
sition, piano and pipe organ, which
has given him an excellent, well
rounded training in music. His in
strument is the clarinet, and he is
a very capable soloist. At present
he is conducting the Odd Fellows
Band in Eugene. His contract with
the University calls for the teach
ing of brass and woodwind instru
ments, and leaves him free to en
gage in any band work he may de
sire, and in all probabality he will
continue with the local band.”
Course Fee Reduced
“Although Corwin is a stranger
to the community, his credentials
have given a very favorable impres
sion, and I am sure he will meet
with much favor and popularity,”
the dean continued.
Classes in this department will
begin Monday, October 12, and any
students interested in this work
will be, able to find Mr. Cor
win at the music building after
that date. Owing to the fact that
the work is new and more or less
experimental, the rates have been
reduced very low, and will be only
$lf> a term. Students desiring to
register in these classes will be ex
empt from the usual late filing fee.
An extra hour of credit is being
allowed those philosophy students
who wish to do additional work in
reading and discussion. Under
this plan, the philosophy classes
have been divided into two parts,
the general and the intensive.

Two New Varsity
Yells Are Given
Tryout at Rally
Two new yellls received their
Oregon baptism last night at the
pep rally and will be given their
initial big-league workout today
when the Varsity meets the Van
dals, The yells, as named by yell
king Fred Martin, were: “The Tor
nado, ” “O-o-oh—rtjgon — 0*>jqh —
regon—O-o-oh—regon,” and “Fight,
Oregon, Fight, Fight.”
The thundering thousand, after
the yells had been practiced a time
or two, literally shook the walls
of the men’s gym with their titanic
verbal outbreak. Martin, and his
assistants, Warner ar i Hendricks,
appeared pleased.
So did the co-eds, who jnixed joy

Features of Evening
A big dance with a four-piece
orchestra, refreshments, and all the
elements of a good time will bo
feature at the get-together of the
men’s and women’s Oregon clubs
tonight from 8 to 11:30 in the sun
parlor and dancing room of the
Woman’s building.
Because of the increasing number
of organizations, it was impossible
to make arrangements for atl of
the unaffiliated students to parti
cipate in “Open House,” and the
dance toni'ght is to enable those
students to be brought together,
and give them an opportunity to
get acquainted.
The patronesses and patrons are:
Doan and Mrs. H. D. Sheldon, Dr.

Brilliantly colored autumn leaves
will be used for decorations, and
punch will bo served during the
evening. The affair is to be no

togs being very proper.
The Chinese club is giving an en
tertainment also in the Women’s
building, so the Oregon club mem
bers and guests are asked to enter
the building on the south side.
Those on the committee in cliargo
of the party are: Ardath Caldwell,

F. G. Young, professor in the
Sociology department, has received
word from the publishers of the
Encyclopedia Brittanica that his
article bn “Oregon,” wliic’Ji waft
requested of him by the publishers,
has been accepted. Professor Young
wrote an article on “Oregon” five
years ago for the supplementary

years the demand has been so great
that another supplement is neces
sary to make the encyclopedia up
to date.
Professor Young spent most of

Sports Editor
Idaho, the most spectacular rush
ing team in the Pacific Northwest,
is in for some tough competition
this afternoon on Hayward field in
the eighteenth game with Oregon,
their traditional rival. In spite of
Coach Mathew’s laconic statement,
“We expect to win,” the varsity
goes into the fray better off in
many ways than in the 13 times
Oregon has handed the Vandals the
short end of the score.
Last night the Vandal horde ar
rived, 28 strong. Most of them are
giants. And don’t let anyone tell
you that the Idaho .line is light, for
it is made up of “mooses.” Coach
Mathews saw* the Multnomah-Ore
gon game Saturday and tucked
away in his foxy head is the idea
that his squad is going to win. But
the visitors are doomed for the sur
prise of their lives when Oregon’s
rejuvenated varsity takes the field
in its first conference game.
Teams Works Hard
For the past week the team has
been drilled and drilled for three
hard hours a day and they have ab
sorbed a lot of football. It is not
the disorganized group that scraped
through the Multnomah game, but
a heady, powerful machine which
needs only a game to bring out its
For one thing the varsity is just
about 100 per cent better on the of
fense than last Saturday. That has
been the big object of the work
outs the past week. The defense
needed only the week s polishing
for it worked reasonably well
against Multnomah. The entire
team has been reorganized. You will
see a squad of voterans starting the
line today with the exception of
one man.
Oregon for the first time since
the days of “Bill” Steers has a
punting staff thut can stand the
pace. There are three men in the
backfield who can punt on an aver
age of 35 to 40 yards consistently.
Passers in quantity sprinkle t|ie
Webfoot backfield.
Then there are the first caliber
reserves. Many games Oregon has
played Idaho with only 11 men.
That is not the case this time. Fast
backs, heady quarterbacks, and ex
perienced linesmen are on the bench
waiting for the call.
Peak Not Beached
The one thing that is unavoid
able at this time of the season is
