A Splendid University
Friend Passes
The University was grieved to hear of
the death of C. E. Woodson who for
many years was a member of the board
of regents. Mr. Woodson’s death Mon
day evening followed a protracted fail
ure of health during the past year.
Mr. Woodson was a- graduate of the
University* taking a B.A. degree in 1897
when he was a classmate of his widow,
Ida Belle Roe, also a University grad
Most of Mr. Woodson’s life was spent
in eastern Oregon where he early estab
lished a law office in Heppner, Morrow
county. For two terms he represented
Umatilla and 'Morrow counties in the
state legislature. In Addition he held
many other positions of public trust
Mr. Woodson became a member of the
board of regents during the term of Gov
ernor Olcott, and since that time has
served actively in shaping the policies
of the University.
Those who were acquainted with Mr.
Woodson are generous in their memory
of him. Always faithful in his public
duties he was known as a capable and
valuable member of the board of regents.
The University is anxious to offer its
sympathy to the members of Mr. Wood
son’s immediate family; Mrs. Woodson,
and- two daughters, Margaret and Ber
nice, both Oregon students.
Give the Y. W. C. A. the
Assistance it Deserves
Securing $1,600—the Y. W. C. A. goal
to provide funds for.constructive campus
work this year—is no easy task.
We collegians will gladly pour money
into rally trains, parties, dances and kin
dred affairs where immediate dividends
can be seen; but when it comes to con
tributing to a proposition where glaring
profits to ourselves are not instantly
tangible the story is of a different sort.
The campus Y. W. C. A. is a social or
ganization ready at all times tx> be of
assistance to any girl student- Perhaps
it merely is a hint in the way of securing
a room ; perhaps it is a quiet service in
widening thp circle of friends of a new
student ; or perhaps it is merely in offer
ing some organization a hospitable meet
ing place.
Miss Florence Magowan, secretary of
the campus Y. W. summed up the sit
uation well when she said:
“Our two Christian organizations for
students have been called the ‘.balance
wheels’ of the campus! We try to pro
mote friendships, widen the interests of
students and broaden their knowledge of
students of other countries. The Y. W. C.
A. makes the world a friendly one by
helping to smooth out tin' racial preju
dices through an impartial and broad
understanding of all nationalities.”
Every girl student should realize the
justness of the Y. W. request for finan
cial assistance and should do her share.
The men have backed the Y. M. C. A.,
now it is-the women’s turn.
Ami so it came to pass in 1925 that the
annual t). A. ('. football game drew nigh.
Also it came to pass that Oregon serenely
decided to beat (). A. 0 Feel it f
“Suspense” was left us, a fragment, at the
death of Joseph Conrad. Left unfinished, this
novel, recently published by Doubleday, Page,
can never rank with Conrad’s best. Neverthe
less it is well worth reading. Mencken, in the
Atlantic Mercury, said, “It is a fragment, but
that fragment is well-nigh perfect.” Sheer ver
tuosity could go no further.
The main character in the story itself is that
of Cosmo Latham, a young Englishman of wealth
on a tour of Europe at the time of Napoleon’s
internment on Elba. Cosmo’s visits to political
circles of the day and resulting insight into
their background, his impressions on the half
savage niece of an ill-favored count, and sub
sequent kidnappings for diversion make a story
which does hold the reader.
But throughout the entire volume, the main
feature is the influence of Napoleon. He is
seen, heard, felt at all times; he is part of
every conversation, a vital factor in every
rumor. The gigantic influence of Bonaparte’s
personality spreads throughout the pages with
its enevitable effect of tenseness, uneasiness,
even fear.
* * * *
The Saturday Review of Literature offered
a prize of five hundred dollars and fifty-four
smaller prizes for the best essay on what Con
rad’s conclusion might have been. Writers were
not only to consider in their discussion a likely
ending for the story but also were to consider
the plausibility of their ending as that of a
typical Conrad novel. The contest now closed,
papers are being judged by Captain David W.
Bone, Joseph Hergesheimer, and Professor Wil
liam Lyon Phelps.

From Other Schools
The Cambridge University (England) debat
ing team, which has been touring the country
during the past month, has completed over half
its scheduled debates. To date the team has
spoken on five different questions, one of the
most popular being “Resolved, That the future
of the human race depends more on the sciences
than upon the arts and humanities.” Cam
bridge has taken sides with the arts and hu
manities four times.
Lafayette College, Easton, Pa., has joined the
small group of colleges whose class lectures are
no longer com/pulsory to those students who have
evinced serious interest in the pursuit of learn
ing. A student, having attained a grade of “B”
plus is permitted the “exercise of his judgment”
in class attendance.
Bertrand Russell says: “Lectures are a sur
vival from the Middle Ages, due to the fact
that universities have not yet adapted them
selves to the invention of printing. For the
best students lectures are a mere nuisance.
I Teachers should Have discretion in this matter
j and be able to exempt certain of their pupils,
[ it' satisfied that they are not wasting their
, time.”

The Seven Seers award this shining red
fire-wagon, drawn hy a prancing pair of
flea-bitten bays to Eleanor Burtchael for
the way she cuts comers in her little tin
chariot, and for the immaculate, spio and
span way in which she keeps her studio.
(This last was contributed by a young man
who has been there.)
G. Hosafat, official scholar of the Seers, today
received a very important petition for a debate
on a world question that has never been def
initely decided. The question is: “Resolved,
that the horse is of more benefit to humanity
and college students than the cow.” The pe
tition reads as follows:
Petition to the Seers:
We, the below sined, who has solemnly
writ owr names to the end of this here pe
tition, do hereby ask, beg, solicit, etc., the
use of part of the Seer columb for a debate.
The noble Seers are bequested to akt as
jedges, becuz we feel that larned minds
ought to decide in such a nnomenchus case.
Sinse we past the Frosh English exam with
sich fine grades, we hev decided to take
this way of giving Deen Hail notise of what
a smart class he will have in too more yeers.
Therefore, with the kind permishun of the
Seers, we will condukt threw there columbs,
a debate on the queschun, “Resolved, that
the equine is of more benefit to humanity
and collige students than the bovine.”
Witness our hand and seel, today.
(Corvallis) His Mark (X)
(Punkin Center) His Mark (X)
After due deliberation, the petition was
granted, the Seers feeling that the law stu
dents need just, such an example as these learn
ed Frosh are going to set. The debate will of
ficially start tomorrow, with the Seers as judges
(for who could refuse such a nicely worded re
quest as the above?) The Seers wish to an
nounce now that there will be no bribery tol
erated from the supporters of either (contestant,
but that the contest will be decided on its
merits. Comments from, the faculty will be
gratefully received.
Student: “I admire that villain. He had the
courage to keep on in the face of great odds.”
Miss Gray: “Yes, indeed, many men if their
arm had been cut off would have become news
paper men!”
Three gasps were heard from three hard
stricken Emerald reporters.

Stubborn Defense
Oregon Club to Tilt Phi Psis;
Chi Psis Against Delts
Hungering for victory the seven
basketeers of Sigma Chi tore
through the Alpha Beta Chi de
fense and gave the boys the short
end of a 7 to o score yesterday.
Outplayed in 'the first half and
with the count standing 1 to 0
against them, the athletes swelter
ing from the pep talk given them
by coach “Plunks” Beinhart, en
tered the final canto and virtually
tore up the stubborn defense put
up by the Alpha Beta Chis and
shot enough counters to take the
long side of a short score.
Flashy Plays Featured
However, ,tne playing or Ibotn
teams was spectacular throughout.
The teamwork was almost perfect,
for so early in the season, and the
way the men worked the ball from
j one. end of the floor deserved com
I ment, state followers of the intra
i mural athletics.
Pullen started the scoring for the
' Alpha Beta Chi team when he con
I verted a try from foul after but
| seven minutes of play. During the
j remainder of the half both teams
: tried vainly to connect for coun
j ters but due to sufficient guarding
j wore held from looping the ball.
Last Half Is Fast
i With the opening of the second
j canto, the teams had developed
their second wind, and virtually
tore up and down the maple court.
Sigma Chi,began to climb in the
score column, finally taking the
i lead. During this time the Alpha
Beta Chi men were making a vain
effort to keep in the lead.
The gallery, surrounding the
court in the men’s gymnasium, was
! crammed full for the game.
Thrills Predicted
Two more thrilling and hectic
j games will take place this after
noon, the first at four o’clock and
! the other at five. Delta Tau Delta
will play Chi Psi and the Oregon

The members of the Homecoming
■ommittee are leaving no stone un
turned in their efforts to adver
tise the big annual pilgrimage of
old Oregon grads back to the cam
pus November 14. The latest meth
od adopted by the committee to
advertise the week-end ceremonies
is the use of envelopes bearing the
announcement of Homecoming and
illustrated with a suitable football
action picture. Three thousand of
these envelopes have been printed
and are on sale at the Co-Op store.
They are priced at ten for fifteen
cents. All students are flaked to
cooperate with the Homecoming
committee and use these' envelopes
during the next two weeks.
The campus workmen are now
engaged in installing the electri
cal apparatus for the psychology
department, on the third floor of
Condon hall. A pump, switch
board, control, motor and other
electrical fixtures will be made
ready for use in the laboratory work
of the department.
