A long train] of Southern Pacific
coaches filled with 750 excited Oregon
undergraduates pulled out from Villard
Hall yesterday afternoon, bound for
Portland and the Golden Bears. In addi
tion to the special train, scores of auto
mobiles left Eugene bound for the same
destination. Many others will leave this
morning. From all appearances most of
the University has decamped, leaving
only the buildings and the Condon oaks.
The day will be a tense one for every
one interested in University athletics.
Those who found it impossible to make
the trip to Portland m«t content them
selves with the nerve-wracking grid
In Portland everyone that can beg, bor
row, buy, bribe or steal his way into Mult
nomah field is certain of witnessing a
combat of terrific earnestness.
Potent psychological factors enter this
particular contest. California, undefeat
ed' by -a university eleven within the col
lege life of every California undergrad
uate, comes north with a cock-sureness
and a confidence of no mean proportions.
At the same time the California team is
conscious of the imperative necessity of
maintaining the southern university’s
present position and prestige.
Oregon likewise brings a tremendous
store of psychological factors.
First, there is the innate belief in every
Oregon student that Oregon teams are
Secondly, there is the “good loser com
plex” which Oregon is striving to over
Thirdly, the Oregon team has been
“pointed” for California for the past
The game will be a mighty sprap, we
can be assured. Furthermore, we can be
certain, with the student body fighting
with the team as the last two days have
demonstrated, that the team will give its
That assured, we can ask no more.
Any student wishing to get himself or
herself into a tremendo\is job with much
work and little glory may have the job

The job consists in putting across a
new “University of Oregon” magazine.

the present time the “Oregon Emerald”

tion, humor, verse, pen work, essays, ar

No we are. not running an addition to the
Seven Seerlets. The above are merely lovable,
aimless gibberings of our dear friend Cyril
Hume. You see, Mr. Hume finds himself trans
ported to the Kiwanis Club of the Arts—Y’Clept
Jonquil Club—wherein he awaits the coming of
one Mr. South (why couldn’t it have been East
or West?) who, we gather, is going to tell a

we understand Mr. Hume is all ears (we do not
mean this literally) for South’s story—to col
lect a little material that he can Warm over
to serve up as a anecdote which he would fancy
Smith, however, brings another with him—
a chap named Fisher. To quote Hume:
“ ‘Fishcjr, ’ I thought, ‘is an affected ass. Those
baggy tweeds in the city—. And he’s fat as a
pig under his clothes. But no. Maybe he
jgn —. The swift impressions succeed and
contradict each other. He really isn’t fat at
all. Just soft. Soft as bacon. Soft as a stuff
ed egg—He’s soft inside in his guts. Nastily.
Unhealthily.’ We shook hands and Fisher’s
hand was wet and tepid against n<y own.”
“I don’t like this Fisher,” Hume thinks,
“there’s an atmosphere about him—Why
did South dmg him in here today, I won
And Hume finds his answer when he realizes
that South is to tell'Fisher’s life story. “You
mean Fisher’s life?” cries Hume. “No thanks,
South. I don’t go in for animal stories.”
“Little fool. Any life is worth loag
and laborious portrayal provided it is seen
truly and completely. Provided it is really
understood—. And I have seen Fisher’s
life vividly and poignantly and integrally.,
Will you use it? It is an opportunity you
might have prayed for.”
Thus the essence of the prelude to “Cruel
Fellowtship” Which will be reviewed in the
BOOK NOOK next week.

Yes, we know you’re glad to see us, and
thanks for saving us good seats. If it hadn’t
been for Sinbad, we would have been here much
earlier. You see it was this way:
At the rally last night, Sinbad took us down
stairs to where Kay Mosier’s suitcase was
calmly reposing in a corner, and when we tried
to tell him to leave it alone and not touch what
didn’t belong to him, hd got obstinate, and de
clared that the All-Seeing Eye had shown him
where the stuff was, and told him to take all
he wanted. Well, what can you do in a case
So when we put the empty bottles back in
the suitcase, and tip-toed back upstairs to hear
Baz Williams tell another dirty story, we got
to laughing about what Hosiers would say when
he found three empty bottles in his bag. We
laughed so darn hard, we didn’t notice that Sin
bad had passed/out right there on the floor.
We had an awful tinle with him, but at last
we put him in a car hired especially for that
purpose, along with Ted Becker, Bob Knight,
Dud Clarke, Jack Jones and other good fel
lows, pinned his address on him, and left him.
The chauffeur had so many men to deliver
and so many addresses to find, poor old Sinbad
didn’t roll in till five-thirty, and we had a
heck of a time pulling him out of bed at twelve
thirty this morning. Nevertheless, you can
see he looks fresh as a daisy, and he’s holding
up at least as well as Becker, Knight, Clarke,
Jones and other good fellows.

As a part of our service to our readers, the
Seven Seers forecast coining events. Here is
our prediction for today’s game;
A total of 17,658 hours of sleep will be
collectively lost by the Oregon student body
this "week end.
153 alumni are going to corner twice as
many undergraduates hnd say—“It was a
great game—a wonderful game. But you
ought to have seen the team we put out
in—. . . ”
For three days next week “I went to
Portland” will take precedence as an alibi
over “I couldn’t get the book.”
A total of 978 Bromos will be taken be
fore the return to Eugene. V
WE WANNA TOUCHDOWN!!!!
As to the exact score, the Seers crystal ball
was indefinite. We can only predict that the
game will be fought to a bitter end; that both
teams will know that they have been in a '
battle; and that the score will probably be 13-0.
That is, of course, unless there is an upset in
the dope, or it rains, or the sun shines, or the i
field is slow, or Gene Shields has whooping I
cough, not taking into account passes, fumbles ;
