O. A. C.
Saturday Battle for State
Title May Be Webfoot
Beaver Finale On
Local Field
By W. J.
Hayward field, newly initiated
into the tread of Aggie and Ore
gon players in the annual gridiron
classic of the state, is doomed!
It will pass into oblivion as the
•scene of the battle of battles, as
did old Johnson field (where the
Oregon building now stands) and
historic Kincaid, the scene for
many years of ankle deep mud bat
tles, where sank the cleats of Ore
gon’s mightiest stars.
« * *
The thirtieth contest between the
rival schools on November 14 'for
the belt, pennant, purse, or champ
ionship of Lane, and Benton Coun
ties, or of the state will probable
be the last between the two on
Hayward field according to present
j>lans. Bell field at Corvallis will
not be used for a contest between
the two either.
* • •
The future classic of the state
will probably be played on a neu
-tral field in Portland. The idea
of a neutral field to play the game
on is the main point in the con
sideration of Carl Lodell and Jack
Benefiel, graduate managers of the
“two institutions.
• • •
Hayward field will be the scene
of the biggest clashes on the sched
ule according to present plans. Ida
ho, Stanford, California or Wash
ington State College will be played
on the home gridiron. A field in
Portland will be reserved for the
O. A. C. and the Washington con
» • *
Neither Corvallis nor Eugene is
the logical place to have more than
two games, that is, big games of tho
season. So with three games sched
uled at home almost every season the
prospects of slating the O. A. C.
clash for a Portland stadium are
Bright. Three big home games a
year is enough for any schedule.
* • •
The choice of the place te play
the game in 1926 or 1927 will be
either the proposed Multnomah sta
dium, which would have a seating
capacity of from 35,000 to 45,000,
or the new Portland baseball park,
with a seating capacity of 45,000.
This will insure a bigger attendance
of the “old grads” of both institu
tions. ’
* * *
The students aren’t getting left
out of the bargain, however, for if
the game is played in Portland
they will be given free tickets and
it will in all probability be played
on Thanksgiving day or some other

When the gladiators trot out on
the field next Saturday, it will in
all probability be the last time they
will line up against each other on
Hayward field. Vandals, Cougars,
Golden Bears and Cardinals with all

Legion Said to Have Heavy
Squad of Ex-college Men;
Yearling Have Injuries
Team Gains Practice With
Varsity In Scrimmage;
Punting Becoming Steady
By Dick Syrlng
The Oregon yearling football squad
has two big obstacles in its path
this week, “Wednesday morning 22
players and coach will go to Rose
burg where the fast American Leg
ion eleven will be met in the after
noon as a part of the Armistice Day
celebration; Friday noon Coach
Earl “Spike” Leslie will take the
entire squad of freshman gridiron
aspirants to Corvallis where they
will meet the Aggie Rooks. The
“baby” Beavers won the annual
fracas last year, 14 to 13.
The team which is to face the
Rosebnrg American Legion eleven
will be the yearling’s second team,
however, any man showing tip goo4
in this battle will be given a chance
in the Corvallis game. The Legion
team is reported to be heavy and
fast, having a number of ex-college
players in its ranks.
Frosh Point Books
The game with the O. A. C. Books
is the one game which Coach Leslie
and his assistants have been point
ing toward all year. It is better te
beat the Aggie than to win any
of the others. The Corvallis school
as usual has a number of stars
on its squad. Parker and Carr,
ends, are both fast men. Luce and
Ebert, tackles; Eilers ai>d Carlson,
guards; and Hokum, center, com
pletes a heavy but charging line.
Maple, signal barker is reputed as
being a triple threat man. Essman
and Fulkerson, halves are both good
line plungers while Whitlock, full
back, carries the brunt of the red
shirted Aggies attack.
Injuries to the local yearling
squad is still one of the big prob
lems confronting the coaches. The
squad will scrimmage with the var
sity tonight. According to the coach
he intends to take the entire squad
to Corvallis. The punting in Fri
day ’s game will be taken care of
by Woody and Martin. Woody’s
punts in the baby Huskies game did
not average much over 35 yards but
were well placed.
22 To Go To Rosebnrg
The men who will go to Roseburg
Wednesday are: The starting line
up, Johnson and Shotwell, ends;
Wade and Bonnett, tackles; Rhodes
and Hinds, guards; Carlson, center;
Jost, quarterback; Llewllyn, full
back, and Coles and Raymond,
halves. The rest of squad making
the trip, Harthrong and Blum, ends;
Bynington and Brandon, tackles;
Brunze and Whorlley, guards; Stra
der, center; Bratton, quarterback;
Benson, fullback and Gilbert and
Brown, halves.
Few women registered in the pre
medieal department at the Univer
sity of Oregon have had as much
actual experience in hospitals as
Katherine Edgar, a senior in the
department. Before entering the
University she spent two years do
ing routine analyses at the Oregon
City Hospital. During the three
years she has been enrolled in p^p
medicine she has worked as a clin
ical laboratory technician at the
Eugene Hospital two terms and one
summer as an assistant for Doctors
R. C. Coffey, Charles E. Sears, and
■Wilson Johnston, Portland,.Oregon.
At the Oregon City hospital, Miss
Edgar took blood counts, urinaly
ses. and coagulation time on all
medieal cases for Doctor* H. 8.
Guy, Albert, and Frank R. Mount
and Dit. MeClane. Ac said It ni
here that she first became interest
ed in this type of work and de
cided to take a premedical course
at the University of Oregon.
Explains Culture Work
“I did blood chemistry work on
diabetes cases, Bright’s disease,
gout, and certain heart disease
cases,” said Miss Edgar. “And
took blood cultures of people with
typhoid, pneumonia, and streptococ
tie infections, to find organisms in
the blood. This is done by placing
the blood in sterile broth. If in
a few hours a growth of bacteria
has taken place, organisms are
present. With cases of typhoid
and pneumonia there are always
organisms in the blood.
“I also took notes on some very
interesting antopsy cases. The first

To Take Vacation
On Armistice Day
In observance of the national
holiday occasioned by the anni
versary of the eighth annual
Armistice Day celebration there
will be no c hisses Wednesday,
November 11.
The Emerald staff will take a
vacation on Wednesday, also there
will be no Thursday morning
paper. All of the work on the
student paper is done by students
on the campus so when a cam
pus holiday comes around they
enjoy the advantage of it.
This holiday will not affect
library conditions on Wednesday
according to M. H. Douglas, li
brarian, and the library will be’
open at the usual hours.
Social Gatherings Planned
For Freshman Women
“Big sisters who haven’t found
their little sisters and little sisters
who have yet to meet their big
sisters, please come to' the informa
tion desk in Dean Esterly’s office
today between 3 and 5 p. m. and
get acquainted,” is the proclama
tion issued by Kathryn Ulrich,
chairman of the Big Sister commit
tee of the Woman’s League.
The Big Sister information desk
was decided upon recently by the
committee in order that the chief
difficulty which has been found so
far in the movement may be over
come, that of getting upper-class
girls in touch with their freshman
protegees. The desk will be avail
able for the use of students on
Tuesday and Thursday afternoons
every week from 3 to 5 o’clock.
“Our Big Sister movement is
working nicely,” Mips Ulrich re
ports, “and this is just one more
development made for its improve
ment. Of course it is a new pro
ject, and is still some what in its
embryonic stage. Just now we are
striving to reach more of the fresh
man girls. We want them to feel
that there is some place where they
can come with their troubles, and
that is why we have created the
information desk.”
Doris Brophy and Vivian Har
per will be in charge of the desk
this week. Later other upper-class
girls will have charge.
After Home-coming a Big Sister
tea will be given, and other social
gatherings are being planned to
maintain the interest of the girls.
Psychology tests given to drafted
recruits at Camp Kearney, San
Diego, California, during the war,
failed to prove that native born
Americans are any 'more intelli
gent than the foreign born recruits
who took the test, says A. H. Kent,
assistant professor of law. Kent,
who came to the University this
fall, held a position in the psycho
logy service at the California camp,
where he was associated with Giles
Puch, a former Oregon student and
now a member of the faculty at
the University of Iowa.
The foreign recruits who were
given the tests made averages as
high as the American men, he said.
The highest scores were not made
by the men of the highest educa
tion. In fact, the highest score
made in an army literate test, was
l>y a man at Camp Lewis, Wash
ington, who had gone no farther
than the eighth grade, Professor
Kent said. ~
Of the 19,000 lor 20,000 recruits
tested, the percentage of almost
total illiteracy was between 24 and
25 percent, said Professor Kent.
That fact shows that our public
school system is not functioning
pioperly in some communities, ho
The tests were divided into two
main groups, the literate, and the
illiterate. In extreme cases of ill
iteraej, individual tests were given.
For foreigners who couldn’t read,
performance tes^s were given. If
a man was found to have extremely
low intelligence he was used in the
labor battallions.
Entire Feature Staged At
1 p. m; Saturday, 9 a. m.
Final Rehearsal Be Held
Speakers Will Give Details
At Fraternities Tonight;
Rooters Must Turn Out
With much of the success of
Homecoming week-end depending
on features at the game, two prac
tice periods for the bleacher stunt
will be held this week. Tomorrow
at 1 o’clock (no classes Wednes
day) the entire feature will be
staged, while Saturday morning at
9 o ’clock, the final rehearsal of the
stunt will be held.
375 Men Must Report
In both of these practices it will
be necessary that 375 men report
on these days at the new grand
stand. Th^ best seats in the entire
new stand will be reserved for the
men in this act and tickets admit
ting those in the stunt will be giv
en out Wednesday at the first prac
tice of this week; each man will be
assigned to an individual place.
The nature of the stunt is the
rapid spelling with cards of O-B-E
G-O-N in connection with the var
sity yell. A large yellow letter will
be formed in a green background
with the spelling out of “Oregon.”
O. A. O. is planning on a somewhat
similar stunt, using cards for form
ing a large Beaver which moves
across the stand in a realistic fash
Two Practices Necessary
The success of the stunt rests en
tirely upon the precision with which
the men in the feature are able to
follow instructions and that each
man be thoroughly acquainted with
the technique involved in the exe
cution of the stunt. Therefore it
is absolutely necessary that those
in the stunt turn out on both prac
tice days, according to Fred Hen
dricks and Paul Sletton, who are in
charge of the feature.
Speakers will appear at all fra
ternities on Tuesday evening to ex
plain the details of the stunt and
the necessity for the men to turn

Secret Workouts Against
Scrubs, Program For The
Balance Of This Week
By Web Jones
Hayward field was a rain soaked
mass of mud last night when the
varsity finished two hours of hard
scrimmage over the pools of the
gridiron. The wet, mud spattered
players blended with the field and
the dusk so that they looked like
ghosts following imaginary inter
ference and handling imaginary
Spirit TTndampened
There was an intensity of effort
out there that ^as not been excell
ed this year. A "do or die” spirit
has taken hold of the team and the
coaching staff. More spirit, more
fight and drive was shown in a
half honr last night than in the en
tire last week. The team is snap
ping out of it. It's going to be a
different looking aggregation when
it lines up against the Aggies.
The pouring rain and the wet ball
did not hinder the workout at all,
although it lasted throughout the
practice. The coaching- staff drove
the team up and down the field,
ironing out faults, and drilling on
the new plays for the annual bat
tle of battles.
Shields Injured
The spirit of the practice wag
dimmed at first by the injury of
Gene Shields, who was packed off
the field in the first part of the
workout with h severely twisted
ankle. The veteran guard will
probably be on the bench for the
Homecoming classic.
The injury list has increased to
alarming proportions. It is handi
caping the coaches to a great ex
tent in developing team work. The
varsity that lined up against the
scrubs was lacking most of the old
heads. Beryle Hodgen will not be
able to enter the game. Louie An
derson was unable to be out on ac
count of injuries. Vie "Wetzel could
only take a light punting workout
and could not run through any
plays. Bert Kerns had to take it
easy with his two broken ribs. The
rest were taped from ankles to)
Unexpected changes in the lineup
will inaugurate the Homecoming
game. Harry Leavitt, a heavy full
back of last year, will probably get
the call for the guard berth recent
ly held by Shields. He is a fight
ing defensive player and from his
mixing in last night it looks like
he is almost as good on offense.
The rest of the lineup will get
some violent shakeups before the
week is over.
Scrubs Resist Varsity
The scrubs were given the ball
for the first part of the workout
to give the varsity much needed
work on defense. The first team
took the ball then to ram, plunge
and pass it over the goal line for
three touchdowns and a hundred
yards down the field against the
stubborn defense of the second
Arnie Kiminki was calling sig
nals last night in the absence of
Louie Anderson. He was doing
heady work in the backfield. Lo
comotive Jones and Saint Vitus,
the heavyweights behind the line
rammed for good yardage many
times through the line. Red Lang
worthy, shifty-hard hitting half
back, was shifted to the first
string. The line was composed of
Smith and Mautz, ends; Dixon and
Sinclair, tackles; Bliss and Leavitt,
guards; and Johnson center.
Secret practice will continue all
week. If indications are correct
these long earnest workouts are go
ing to produce a very different
eleven than has been shown before
this season.
Oregon Girls Will
Carry Lemon-Yellow
Balloons To Game

chrysanthemums, Oregon girls

Dallas by sensational shooting re
juvenated the Sigma Nu rooters.
Dallas collected five baskets in
the second half of the game, be

I game, and is declared to be one of
the best forwards seen On the
court this season. Hermance was
the outstanding player for Kappa
Delta Phi and rung up four bask
ets. “Red Grange” Dutton scin
tillated at guard for the losers, and
was instrumental in breaking up
many plays..
