the same session, president and sec
retary were reelected.
“You don’t see Stanford or Cali
fornia moving up to San Francisco
for their games;' Homecoming
wouldn’t be Homecoming without
a game with our old rival;” “It is
commercializing the game;” “We
must remember that we 'owe some
thing to the campus and Eugene;”
were typical sentiments expressed
in the discussion of the proposed
uommutee suggested
A recommendation was made and
•'approved that the Alumni council
appoint a visiting committee com
posed of six alumni, one being a
faculty member, another a regent,
and three others not connected offi

The chief function of the visit
ing committee would be to make
an official visit to the University

report to the Alumni Association
and Council. It was particularly
stressed that the attftude of the
committee should be a constructive
rather than destructive one.

Mr. Young reported that in Alum
ni Council meetihg the proposition
that “Old Oregon,” official pub
lication of Oregon Alumni, be con
solidated with a new publication

been formulated by the students
here, the association was able to
take no action, but referred it
back for student development with
favorable comment.
A motion was made and passed
that a satisfactory field secretarial
service for the Alumni association
be established throughout the state.

Although complete registration
figures had not been compiled last
night, it was believed the total of
visiting “alums” would |be more
than 3000.
The grads have come from far
and near and tlxey represent nearly
all professions. Each graduating
class, ,it was thought, had at least
one representative. Ellen McCor
nack, class of 1878, the first grad
uating class of the University has
regiterod. Mrs. McCornack was
the only women in that class, which
had an enrollment of five students.
Sho is the daughter bf Dr. Con
don, early Oregon geologist, for
whom Condon hall is named. Mrs.
McCornack has done considerable
work along that line.
“An unusual feature of this
Homecoming is that every one of
the eleven members 'of the Alumni
Council, sxcept Dr. Harold Bean,
of Portland, was here,” said Miss
Calkins. That is a record attend
ance, she said.
At the mteeting of the council,
the members voted to thank the
student committees for the splen
did work done on the Homecoming
plans, and especially James Leake,
for his excellent work as chairman
'of the committee.
The process of registration was
facilitated this year by the use of
registration car^s, according to
Miss Calkins. In former years the
registering was. done in a book and
took a much longer time. The cards
will be filed and used to check
alumni files and for news items
for Old Oregon.

Team’s Scoring Chances;
Aerial Plays Little Used

Aggie eleven crashed through

of the state, witnessed the bat
Coach Schissler’s team failed to
open up its aerial attack and re*
lied on heavy plunging and conser
vative football for its points. The
super-accurate toe of Wes Schul
merich and his line plungipg were
the outstanding features of their
Oregon Offense Good
Oregon’s offense was far better
than it had been this year but the
defense failed in the pinches. Beal
power was shown near the start of
the second quarter when the team
marched down the field from its
own 35 yard line, on 16 plays, to a
touchdown. “Locomotive” Jones,
the human steam roller, carried the
ball for 40 yards in this drive.
The first score of the game came
ten minutes after the Beavers re
ceived the ball on a kick on Ore
gon’s 35 yard line.
Snier, Denman, Edwards, and Sch
ulermich started a steady drvie for
the goal line, reeling off five and
ten yards to a play over the line.
The line plunging was wound up by
a clever end run for the touchdown,
the shifty Denman taking it over.
Punting Is Persistent
Vic Wetzel’s punting was not
consistent. He got off some kicks
above average but his short ones
took down his average. Snider of
O. A. C. out-did himself .in the
kicking department. Oregon had a
distinct advantage, however.
The second Oregon touchdown
cfime as the result of a blocked
punt on O. A. C. ’s 6 yard line.
Bob Mautz, playing his best game
this year, was responsible for the
score. He rushed Snider of his
feet and fell on the ball. Three
line pounding plays by Jones and
Vitus carried it over.
Aggies Place Kick
Twice Oregon was within scor
ing distance, but through penalties
was unable to carry the pigskin
over. O. A. C. did not rely on the
much touted place kicking of Wes
I Schulmerich until near the end of
' the game when quarterback Ed
wards maneuvered his team into
position and the halfback booted
the ball over the goal posts. Three
times the Aggies were within kick
ing distance but did not attempt
The heart was taken out of the
I Oregon team by costly fumbles and
1 heavy penalties at critical times.
Two penalties of 15 yards each in
1 one quarter set the varsity so far
back they were unable to retrieve
I the distance in the period.
Teams Open Np
It began to look like a track
| meet in the last half when the pol
j ished passing attacks were let
I loose. The backfields of both
teams played “toss the ball” and a
fast one from Denman to Edwards
netted 38 yards. Schulmerich heav
ed another one to Edwards for a
good gain. Then Louie Anderson
opened up. Anderson to Mautz, to
Jones, and to Vitus netted over 30
