VOLUME XXVII UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1925 NUMBER 16 i Gunning For The GOLDEN BEAR Coaches Who Scouted California-St. Mary’s Game Tell Of Work Of “Wonder Team” By Web Jones Bill Reinhart and “Spike” Leslie scouted the California-St. Mary’s game last Saturday. They saw the “wonder team” and most of its outstanding players in action. This is what they had to say about it. Andy Smith is smart. There is "no question about the power of the team this year. It is strong in re serves for the California coach used three teams in the game and the unusual part of it was that the men who were substituted looked better than the men who started the game. The team actually played a better game in the second half than in the first. Perhaps they were as good as the starters and the weakened condition of the St. Mary’s team made them look better. The power of the team is not due to brute strength and beef but to intelligent playing. They know how to handle the offense. Lines men repeatedly slipped back to the quarterback to tell him what his man was doing so that the quarter back would know where to direct the attack. It was brainy foot The offense was organized. The gains were made through the line often for 25 to 30 yards. A back shot through the first line 6f scrim mage and picked up his interfer ence on the other side where it was meant to be. Often he hestitated momentarily on the verge of being tackled, to allow his interference •to form. The backfield is Composed of average size men. about 160 pounds. Young and Dixon, who weigh the most, are not over 170 pounds. The backfield will weigh much less than that of Oregon. The ends are also light but fast. The rest of the line is heavy. Dixon the California kicker, av eraged about 36 yards on his punts. The St. Mary’s kicker averaged less. That is going to give Ore gon a big edge in this department of the game. The offense is organized, there are no stars. Each man is a part of a perfect machine. As long as a man does his task he is as much a star as any other man on the team. The backs have wonderful inter "feisnce. That helps to make the t eft m as much as anything else. The interference knows what to do. The team works as a unit. The style is conducive to wonderful team play but not to the “Red” Grange type. Three teams went into the SatA urdav game and there was very little difference between them. The backfield had Dixon, Griffith, Im lay, Young, Blewett, Jabs. Carlson and Brown. One of the most apparent things was that everyone is worried. The coaches are worried, the , team is worried, the students are worried, and the followers are wor ried. They are thinking that th< team with its wonderful materia will not come through this year They show it. It’s in the air ant one can sense it as soon as one geti . there. This is the first time for many ... many years that the coaches hav been worried about the team. I doesn’t happen down there ver; often, but this year it has com over the campus in full force. That why Oregon has a good chance. 1 there is any gloom on this eampu there is twice as much on th Berkeley campus. Official Special Tickets On Sale; $3.81 Round Trip Railroad tickets for the offi cial “rally special” train leaving via Southern Pacific at 3:30 Fri day, will be on sale all day Thursday and if necessary also on Friday morning.

DANCES TONIGHT WILL AID CAUSE' OFSCHOLAHSHIP Girl’s League Sponsoring Dime Crawl To Be Held At All Women’s Houses Ten Cent Admission Helps Build Fund For Foreign Scholarship At University A dime crawl, the first of several which will be held during the year, is to be featured this evening from 6:30 to 7:30 at all women’s organi zations on the campus under the auspices of Women’s League. Do rothy Myers is in charge of the affair. Ten. cents admission will be charged at each house. Miss Mfers is eager that the men of the campus support it enthusiastically, as it is upon them that the success of the dime crawl depends. These social features were start ed two years ago, and have become a definite part of the campus activ ity program. They are given by Women’s League for the purpose of raising money for the Foreign scholarship. The first dime crawl was managed by Jeanne Gay, chair man of the Women’s League Scho larship Loan Fund, in the year 1923-24. The idea, according to Georgia Benson, who was president of Women’s League at that time, was taken from the dime crawls which are held at the University of California for their Student Union fund. About $100 is made at each dance, and sometimes more. “We found them very successful," re marked Miss Benson, “and of course their success was due to the enthusiasm shown bv the men.”' Dean Esterly Commends “The dime crawl is an easy and effective method of raising money,”' Dean Esterly observed, “and is a good thing as long as it is closed on time. However, everyone must remember that the closing time is definitely set for 7:30, and that the rule must be abided by.” Oregon Club will hold its dime crawl at 818 E. 13th at their club room, and all other women’s organ izations will entertain in their own houses except Chi Omega, which will occupy the Beta Theta Pi house, Alpha Delta Pi which will be at the Phi Kappa Psi house, and Delta Zeta, which is to be at the College Side Inn.

Two Bear Hunters And One Bear BE HOMECOMING EXECUTIVE BODE Fraternity Signs To Stress New Features Planned Welcome T® Graduates, A spirit of welcome,' hospitality, goodfellowship and reunion will permeate the Oregon campus dur ing the 1925^ Homecoming. There will be many new features and the old time pep ar,d enthusiasm will be in evidence to make this the most successful and the biggest event of its kind in Otagom- history. Such was the message given out at the first meeting of the1 Homecom ing directorate last night. The biggest thing that, faces the directorate at this time is the lack of interest in a slogan; To date only one slogan has been turned in, and hundreds are 'needed to chose one suitable for tlie occasion. Every student is urged' tro submit his ideas immediately on the blank coupons printed in this issue. A box is provided for this purpose in the library. Only tlfree weeks remain before the annual event and slogans must be in, in time to use for advertising purposes. * Hospitality Idea Stressed “The cards are stacked for one of the most successful Homecomings in the history of Oregon,” said Walter Malcolm, student body pres ident. The idea of hospitality wilT be stressed this year more tlian ever before. In addition to the- usual program on Friday and Saturday there will be. many features the nature of which will be disclosed l'ater. A reception committee will meet all trains and care for visitors. Alumni will be asked to get in the line of march, this year in the annual rally parade. The old notion of antagonism against the Aggies on the fratern ity signs will' be abolished and the idea of welcome to old grads will me stressed. This matter along with the efer present traffic x>r°blein will be handled by a committee composed of Tom Graham, chair man, Bruce Fenton, Doug King, Proc Fl'annigan, Milton Brown and Harold! Llewelyn. Class Members Featured Another feature the committee is working on is the class reunion.

WJf Srrrc/Ji.r' VARSITY BY FISHMEN California-St. Mary's* Game Watched By Coaches The freshman football' (team feels quite honored! this week. They are now the Univ-rrsity of ChKfornia’s golden bears—-that is they act as California in practice games against the varsity. ISaekfield coavft, Billy Reinhart and “'Spike” Leslie; fresh man coach, returned MontBiy from Berkeley, California where1 they witnessed the Otlifornia-Sti. Mary’s game. As a result of the tirip both men know much about this golden stater’s style off play. TH<r fresh man team has been drilled1 with this particular style. Last night scrimmage against the varsity was strenuous. The- fresh men were kept' fighting ailT the time. The yearling team gave a very good exhibition of them selves last Saturday in- the game- against the super-varsity, third team. In this game the green cappers keep their more experienced oppomrts on the go all the- time. Tlite third quarter proved the down fail of the supor-varsity when they fum bled on their Id-yard line- and a freshman player picked the- ball up and raced for ttfir only score of the game as the try-for-poirrt kick failed. Again in this quarter a first year man broke through the i line for a 50=yard sprint. !This | brought the ball to the five yard | lino but the gnn soundhd, ending the game before the baiT could be bucked over. Gooden at fullback and Ostrum air half made- consistent gains through the super-varsity line. According to Coach' Leslie, a squad of 18 men wifi be sent to Roseburg where they will meet the fast American Legion eleven of that city on Armistice day. This squad wilT>be picked from the seven j teams which are reporting for daily | work. The coach, however, will not i pick the men he ihtends to use | against the O. A. C. Rooks at Cor vallis on Friday, November- 13. Freshman stoek took a 'consider able jump the first part of the week when three yearling players who have been on the injured list re ported for work. Cotter Gould, full back, who was out with a wrenched knee is hitting the line harder than ever. Kandvall, center, is again turning put for the pivot position. Thompson, guard, who has been laid up with a bruised shoulder and la one of Leslie’s surest bets on the ,! line, is again spilling plays. FRENCH CLUB MEETS Mile. Lydie Coqblin was the prin i cipal speaker at the meeting of the ■ French club held last evening at 1 the Y. W. Bungalow. Mile. Coqblin 1 gave a talk on her idea of the seen 1 ery of Oregon and contrasted it ! and are urged to attend, said Do rothy Henderson, president, i with her home in France. During r - the evening Mavie Richards played : the Polonaise by Chiopin. All stu l dents who axe taking French courses are welcome in this club WUSIH WORKS III SECRECK FOR FRRY WITH BEAR Squad Behind Closed Gates Driven Hard By Coaches Until Night Hides Field Grid Warriors Develop New ( Vim As Scrimmage Goes Forward For Calif. Tilt ■A deep far reaching mist of mys tery snrronnds Hayward field this I weak as the football aspirants, | eoar.hes and few others work far 1 past darkness in preparation for the oncoming California game. Signals, called by three quarter backs fts they send the members of their trams through light practice and then take them intlo a real fighting .scrimmage; are heard each afternoon. A new life, a new spirit seems to have entered the men on the fiold as they go through the plays outlined by the three-coaches. First the'team walks through a play, re peat* a few-times, and' then linesup against the second string ar fresh man and tests the perfected' play. The coaches are endeavoring to get the-team' working in cTcseK-KKe precision and' are driving the- men on to do their utmost. They are taking-pains to elarify Hie plays in the minds of the athletes amf then tellirig-them tb> go, go as-they would again the claws of the Hidden Bear. New Spirit Shown This method1- of explanation by the eoaeh'es is Bringing alltout a new feeling-,- a new showing- of spirit; and a new attitude toward' the game among tire players. They are beginning to feel that “hopped up” spirit and" are showing it in scrimmage. That spirit displayed when tho students repeat that “fight'’em Oregon” yell; is tailing preference over the inner feeling of the men. Although no outward' show is made by the athletes, a spectator is able to tell that the men are ready-- to uphold tho honor «5f" one gon. The linemen are charging harder, the backfield1 men are hitting hard er, and the- coaches- are driving harder this week Ifinn since the days of Hugo- Berdeek and his 1916 championship team. Condition is another obstacle overcome By tho coaches and Bill' Havward, veteran trainer, have tho I men ready, with the exception of' | Jones. Jones is slated to sit on i the ben oft during the opening min - utes of' the Beer contest but the minute .his strength is needed to bolster- up the backfield he will be sent. His injured wrist is healing in nice fashion, Bill states, but n« chances will be taken in irritating the injured member by scrimmage. However, Jones has been follow ing the first string fullback in all the plays and is ready to step in when the time comes. Vitus To Play Vitus will start his first inter collegiate game this Saturday. “St” Vitus has been going good in practice this past week. He is a sure tackier and one of the best defensive backs on the squad, it is stated. o • B.yr) Ilodgen is being groomed io take over Jones’ work as full baek and is going good. Vic Wetzel has charge of the other half position and is ready to put his punting wares against that of the Boar. The line may see a slight change before the end of this week. Smith and Mautz will probably be work ing at the wing positions when the game starts. Three guards and as many tackles have been showing ability this week. Shields will take care of one guard berth with either Harden or Bailey at the other. Kerns is sit uated at one tackle and from the practice this week, Sinclair ha* displaced Gooding at the other. However, this scrap hasn’t been settled as yet. Johnson is assured as the center.
