colors — lemon-yellow and green —
will be the official marching garb
of the University’s “Thundering
Thousand” in the annual Home

will be known as the “Pajamarino.”
The parade promises to be colorful.

•of the parade committee.

the noise making machine, each
organization will assume the costs
necessary for the parade. Accord

penses of the colored pajamas which
in most cases will be white ones
simply dyed either green or lemon?
Charge Is Small
Arrangements have been made
With a local dyeing and cleaning
works, according to Mr. .Therieau,
to have pajamas dyed and the
proper colors for approximately 30
cents. Pajamas will be collected
and taken to the dyers Thursday.
X. K. Gooding, who has charge
•of the general botany department
• of the Oregon Agricultural College
will give a lecture Wednesday

The disease, which is a fungas,
spreads from the currant and
gooseberry plants attacking and
Tolling the pine timber. This ma
lady of the timber belts was first
brought to this country from Eu
rope about twenty years ago and
has spread rapidly, until it now

Webfooters Play Faster
Game Than Huskies
In what is declared to have been
one of the best footall contests
held on Hayward field this year
the Oregon freshman lost to the in
vading Washington huskie yearl
ings 12 to 7 last Saturday.
Holding a one point lead the Ore
gon frosh seemed content to wait
for the gun to terminate the game.
However, fighting valiantly, the
Huskie babes took advantage of
this laxity and Started with the
ball in midfield with but a few
minutes to go and with consecu
tive passes, line buck, and another
pass took the ball over the final
white mark for the winning score.
Thus “Spike” Leslie, frosh men
tor, takes a loss for his first ap
pearance, on an Oregon gridiron.
Hbyrever, the Webfooters showed
a better aggregation than did the
Huskies. The team played faster,
punted for more distance and com
pleted more pajss attempts. But
the victory goes to Washington due
to one minute’s laxity on the yearl
ings side.
Coach Leslie found one pros
pective punter in he game, how
1 ever. Chet Martin, tackle, stepped
back on each occasion and booted
the ball over the Huskie safeties
head. 'He outdistanced the oppos
ing- punter, seemingly without un
due effort.
Slaussen, end; Hagan, and Ed
die, half; Grear, Martin and Flegel
end; stood out as Oregon’s best.
Carrol, half; Schneiderman, center;
and Captain Butler, quarter, shone
for the visitors.
A .luncheon at the Anchorage

of the Y. W. C. A. finance drive

Board of Regents Accepts
Minority Report of Fisk
And Rejects Col. F. P. Day
Faculty, Campus Opinion
Will be Sought by Board
When Making Selection
The new president of the Uni
versity of Oregon, when he is ap
pointed, will receive a yearly sal
ary of $10,000 instead of $8,000,
the sum paid the late President
Prince L. Campbell.
This was decided at a meeting
of the Board of . Regents bf the
University at Portland, last Sat
urday. The meeting was one of
the most interesting and probably
the stormiest in years. By a vote
of six to five the board excluded
the press and the public from that
part of the meeting which dealt
with the selection of a president
for the University.
Col. Day Not Preferred
' Colonel Frank Parker Day, of
Carnegie Institute, was definitely
rejected from futher consideration
for the position of president after
Msr. George Gerlinger and C. O.
Colt of the special committee ap
pointed to investigate him had re
ported. Ifred Fisk, a third member
of the committee presented a min
ority report opposing consideration
of Colonel Day which was adopted
by the board. The special commit
tee was enlarged from three to
five members at the request of
Fred Fisk.
Faculty and campus opinion is be
ing considered by the board in
their selection of a man to fill this
important position. One point
brought up by the investigating
..committee was that Colonel Day did
not measure up to faculty expecta
tions. Another reason offered was
that the man did not please the
campus, which of course, means the
Activity Not Expected
Colonel Day did not impress the
faculty as a desirable man for the
position, according to a report sub
mitted by Dean Hale of the faculty
committee which had been appoint
ed to report to the board. This
action was taken by the faculty
only after a close observance of tha
man from every angle.
The action of the board reject
ing this man puts, at rest any im
mediate activity regarding the ap

The University Press started
moving into its new home just be
hind the Household Ants building
yesterday. The linotype and a
new Miehle printing press have al
ready been installed. Two miore
days will be needed before the
composing room and old press can
be completely moved, according to
Robert C. Hall, head of the print
shop. The old press will be used
for pirnting the Emerald while the
moving is going on, after which it
will be retained and used along
with the new Miehle.
In the last ten years the Uni
versity press has grown from a
“handfull” of type, a press, and
linotype machine to a modern, well
equipped press room, imclnding a
book bindery. Library books for
the University are bound in t}iis
department. o
All the University printing, in
cluding catalogues and publications
sueh as “Old Oregon,” are printed
on the campus, bound and made
ready for distribution. An average
of 15 people are on the press pay
roll. A day and a night shift are
kejJt working throngh-out (the
school year. * ,
“A good indication of this growth
of the University is told by the
Trowith of its printing,” Mr. Hall
said. "As the institution grows,
l it’s printing grows as well.”

Webfooters Hold To Even
Score During First Half
Of Exceptional Contest
Team Returns And Starts
Strenuous Workouts For
Coming Beaver Contest
. After playing ita beat game of
the current seaaon during, the first
half, the Oregon team crumpled and
Stanford was able to pile up a
three touchdown lead at Palo Alto
last Saturday. The final score was
p5 to 13; the count at half time
was 14 to 13.
Stanford started with a rush and
scored soon after the game opened
on a long pass, a 60 yard run by
Hyland, and a series of bucks.
Patchett carried the ball over.
Oregon scored a few moments
later, when Vitus intercepted a
pass, and the Webfoot backfield
made yardage twice. Lynn Jones
plunged over from the one yard
mark. The resulting try for point
was lost by a wide pass from cen
ter. •
Another touchdown by Patchett
of Stanford ended the scoring per
iod, but Oregon came back in the
next quarter and scored another
touchdown after a series of bril
liant passes and running plays.
Jones again made the scoring
plunge and Wetzel converted, mak
ing the count 14 to 13.
Nevers Sent In
At this stage, "Pop” Warner
rushed in his scoring ace, Captain
Ernie Nevers, in an effort to turn
the tide, but the northerners were
hopped up, and more than held
their own during the remainder of
the quarter.
. The second half was all Stan
ford. Soon after the period open
ed Stanford scored after a series
of running plays, chiefly by the
highly-touted Nevers, who made the
six points. The Cardinals scored
a few minutes later on a long pass
to Shipkey, left end, who was en
tirely clear, and had but to step
over the goal line.
The final Stanford score came
late in the game when the south
erners took the ball deep in their
teritory and swept it over the Ore
gon goal line by four brilliant
runs, Bogue counting.
Oregon Threatens,
Oregon threatened several times,
but, after the first half, seemed to
lack a punch. Long Stanford
passes had them almost continually
on the defense.
Captain Bob Mautz played his
best game of the year, and dumped
everything within reach. Nick Car
ter, playing his first game at cen
ter, loomed up strong on the de
fense, Wetzel’s kicking was excel
lent and compared with his work
against California, while Lynn
Jones proved a bear on both of
fense and defense.
Contrary to expectations, the day
was chilly and sunless. Instead of
begun. The team returned yester
sweltering, the Oregon men were
shivering before the game was well
day morning in good shape. Dixon,
Smith, and Shields received slight
! injuries, barely sufficient to keep
them from yesterday’s scrimmage.
The concert which was to be
given Thursday evening by Ma
dame McGrew, Rex Underwood and
Aurora Underwood, under the au
spices of Mu Phi Epsilon, has beer
postponed until November 19. Due
to conflicting engagements, this
was made necessary.
This will be the first of a seriei
of concerts to be givep by that or
ganization, and will include pro
grams presented by various mem
bers of the school of music faculty

Fido Has new Coat
Talk about being dyed in the
wool! That is what happened to
Fido the other day.
If you ever saw an odd dog,
it was he. The silky whiteness
of his poodle -coat, it seomed, had
not been enough to endear him
to his owner. So, in an artistic
Exactly how it happened, we
do not presume to explain, but
when we saw Fido his coat was
