Enthusiasm Waxing Hot;
Will Be Largest In
BY W. J.
A record crowd for a football
game in the state of Oregon will
ivatch the 22 grim warriors 'to
morrow afternoon on Hayward field.
From every part of the state, grad
uates and football enthusiasts are
coming back for the classic on the
gridiron schedule. The annual game
has established itself as the great
est battle of the year.
* » *
More than 20,000 people will
watch the game from the covered
grandstands. The new grandstand
with a seating capacity of 4400 will
be used for the first time.
The biggest attendance at a foot
ball game in the gridiron history of
Oregon will exceed that of last
Homecoming by five thousand and
the California-Oregon game this
fall in Portland by two thousand
which up to this time holds the

This is Oregon’s initiation into
the much sought realm of paying,
big-attendance football. Football
enthusiasm is running higher this
year than ever before. Attendances
are larger all over the country and
Oregon has fallen in with the swing
of things. More and larger facili
ties are needed to take care of the
increasing crowd. Stadiums are in
demand. Oregon has progressed in
drawing power but there is no place
to handle the crowds.
Oregon is moving in big league
company for the first time in foot
ball history so that it keeps the
officials busy finding room for the
In the two games played in the
northwest against conference teams
and the one this Saturday the total
attendance will approximate 50,000.
The Washington game at Seattle
promises to be a record breaker.
That can be put down on the sched
ule as the big game of the year.
The magnet that i3 drawing thou
sands this week-end is the quality
of the game. Recognized as a bat
tle from start to finish thousands
are expecting that fight and spect
acular football that has character
ized these games in the past.
# * *
There is the feeling among the
enthusiasts that this is the Aggies’
year. They are coming back to see
them mop up the field with Ore
gon. O. A- C. has been the underdog
for many years and now interest is
high in seeing that underdog come
out and win. It is the same feel
ing that makes thousands watch
California games in the hope that
the Oolden Bears will be toppled
from their lofty position.
• • •
Never before has such enthusiasm
has been shown about the great Am
erican sport in the northwest as has
been evidenced this season. Teams
are better, they are crowd pleasers
and conference teams in the Pacific
northwest are cfowd drawers with
out an exception.

The Orange and Black with its
five or six thousand suporters en
ters the game, an overwhelming
favorite for the first time in many
years. On paper the dope gives them
the edge. Their supporters are jus

eleven has made a fine showing

L. H. Gregory, Oregonian sports
editor, figures the dope about even
according to the reports of Stan
ford coaches and players.

But the thing that draws them
t,aclc—hundreds of miles over the
state is the battle! Two teams per
fectly trained and usually playing
over their heads in this clash, is
worth two ordinary games.

FROSH GRID WARRIORS
ID MEET ROOKS TODAY
Oregon Babes Too Much for
Forty-five fighting yearling foot
ball players, imbued with Oregon
fight, amd Coach “Spike” Leslie
and three assistant coaches, Dick
Reed, George Allison and George
Bliss, leave this morning at 11:30
o’clock for Corvallis where the Ore
gon Aggie Rooks will be met in a
hard tussle on Bell field.
Although the freshman football
schedule does not call for many
games played this season. All sea
son, Coach Leslie has been pointing
his men for this one game. ' The
Aggie Rook game, which was won
by the Corvallis lads last year 14
to 13, is the incentive of all first
year men who have toiled ceaseless
ly through the gridiron period.
In a football game played at
Roseburg on Armistice Day the
yearling second team defeated the
heavy American Legion team of
that place 21 to 0. The freshman
team although outweighed fought
throughout the game. The three
touchdowns were made with two
forward passes and once the ball
was bucked over. Llewllyn, full
back, scored one touchdown from a
line buck and the other touchdown
came as a result of a well executed
pass from Jost to quarterback,
made the three try for point boots.
“Tiny” Wade and Bonnett, tackles,
played a good game. Hinds, guard,
was also in a number of plays.
Coles and Llewllyn starred for the
yearlings in the backfield.
The probable lineup for the Ag
gie Rooks is as follows: Parker and
Carr, ends; Luce and Ebert, tac
kles; Eilers and Carlson, guards;
Hokum, center; Maple, quarter
back; Essman and Fulerson, half
backs; and Whitlock, fullback.

Rejuvenated Eleven To Take
Field At 1:30 Saturday;
Shields- Hodgen Are Out
Players Are Physically Fit
For Gridiron Struggle;
Morale Of Team Is High
By Web1 Jones
The stage is set for the game of
games of the season with the com
pletion of the last hard practice
on the two weeks intensive drill
for .the varsity squad last night.
The rain soaked gridiron was used
for two hours of signal work.
The field was slippery, but it has
not had enough rain to make it
quagmire and on a fairly firm
foundation the squad was able to
maneuver with some sort of sure
ness among the pools.
Mystery has covered Hayward
field for the past week. What will
come out of its secret recesses will
be shown Saturday when the “new”
varsity trots on the field. These
two weeks of practice since the
Stanford game has worked wonders
with the team. It has not gone
backward in any way but has con
tinued on its steady climb toward
Two Men Out
The two major casualties of the
team were not out in suits which
means that they will not play in
the game Saturday. Gene Shields’
ankle is still in a bad shape and
Beryle Hodgen is limping.
The men who ran signals as the
first team last night were in fine
condition. There will be no more
fear on the part of the coaches
that the men will be injured before
the game, because the tapering off
has started and no more dangerous

Men Asked To Report At
11:30 a. m. Tomorrow
Nearly 100 men, all members of
either the athletic managerial
staffs, Oregon Knights, To-Ko-Lo
or Gra-Kos, will report to Hayward
field at 11:30 a. m. tomorrow to
do administrative work before and
during the game.
Each man has been selected for
the special work he is to do, and
has been assigned a definite place
by Kay Moeser, athletic manager,
who declared the failure of a single
man to report would materially
weaken the staff.
The men are not to participate,
in the rooters’ stunts, as they will
be kept busy elsewhere. They are
to report to their captains when
reaching the field at 11:30.

ANATOMY CLASS WANTS CATS
Cats, big husky specimens, are

anatomy. The biology department
offers a premium of 25 cents for
each desirable looking cat whicl^ is
delivered at Deady hall.
Because of the scarcity of ani
mals to work on, the anatomy class
is making slow progress, according
to Dr. K. R. Heustis, of the depart
ment. Cats which are sacrificed
are not tortured, but are being gass

Oregon’s eleventh annual Homecoming is here.
Today, the highways and byways of the Pacific northwest—
and the world—lead to the University. The influx of alumni,
which is predicted to be the largest in the University’s history,
will start early this morning and by nightfall, Oregon will have
reclaimed hundreds of her former students.
‘OREGON FIGHT’ Si
TO BRING BACK ALUMS
Ex-Varsity Football Star
Speaks At Assembly
“It’s the ‘Oregon fight to win’
spirit that brings the did ‘alums’
back year after year for Homecom
ing; it’s the ‘Oregon fight to win’
spirit that has time after time
caused the Oregon eleven to out
class the O. A. C. team when the
latter was doped to win, and Ore
gon was considered the underdog.
This spirit, and this alone, will win
on Hayward field Saturday.”
These were the words of Ed
Bailey, prominent alumnus and ex
varsity football star, who spoke at
the assembly yesterday in the audi
torium of the Woman’s building.
Bailey told of his happiness in
anticipation of Homecoming, which
he declared was the red letter event
in the year for him, as well as to
numerous other old-grads, because
of the opportunity it gave for the
renewing of college friendships.
Walter Malcolm, president of the
associated students, who presided
at the assembly, emphasized that an
attitude of friendliness and^ hospi
tality should be assumed by every
member of the student body during
Homecoming week-end. Oregon, he
declared, is no longer a small town

In chronological order, there will
be the “pajamarino,” the frosh bon
fire, the Homecoming rally and the
alumni smoker—each event in it
self worthy of an entire evening.
Parade Starts at 7:00
The “pajamarino,” which this
year takes the place of the custo
mary Homecoming noise parade,
starts at 7:00 o’clock, according to
the edict of Ed Therieau, parade
chairman, from the “O,” which will
be emblazoned on Skinner’s butte
by a pyrotechnical display.
This display, which will be ac
companied by the lighting of
torches by the marchers and the
flashes of sky-rockets, will be the
signal for the starting of the pro
cession, which serpentines down the
butte to meet the band, the drum
corps and the Order of the “O” at
the S. P. fountain.
Serpentining, the “pajamarino,”
pausing only at shows, resturants
and hotels, will make its way to
Old Kincaid field where the
“frosh” bonfire will be lighted.
Early this morning, the frosh were
still working and the success of the
pyre was assured.

The rally follows the cerfemonies
at the bonfire and will be held in
