UTS MEN RETURN HOME 1NITHJICTORY Huskies Take No Chance Of Over - Confidence I n Next Battle With Oregon All Seattle And Students Turn Out En Masse To Greet Winning Eleven A trainload of Huskies passed through Eugene Sunday night with victory and the first sure chance at a Pacific Coast championship resting upon the shoulders of 40 gridiron warriors on board. The spectacular victory at Berkeley of the Washington • team over Andy Smith’s five year champions was the big upset in t.he conference and critics, writers and coaches are un animous in the saying that it was deserved. Welcome Given Team When the team arrived In Seat ises to draw the record crowd to to them. The entire student body turned out en masse to welcome the team home. Only one more confer ence battle remains before the team completes its showing on the coast. That game is with Oregon on Thanksgiving. The struggle prom ises to draw the record crown to the stadium for enthusiasts from all over the coast are going to be these to see the champions play. Already an extra large advance sale of tickets is reported. Oregon Is Feared Enoch Bagshaw has learned his lesson. That dashing of all confer ence hopes in the mud of Hayward field last Homecoming by an Ore gon team that wouldn’t stay licked taught him that he could never take anything for granted. The powerful Husky team of 1924, the strongest supposedly ever developed up north failed miserably on ac count of over-confidence. Last sea son the Washington eleven was do ing wonders on the road to coast conference championship and they had it spilled by a slip up. This Thanksgiving you can trust to crafty Enoch Bagshaw that he is taking nothing for granted where an Oregon team is concerned. 1RBITH' TIES LEAD IN POPULARITY The top place in the list of lead ing books of the season at the Uni versity library continues to be held by Sinclair Lewis “ Arrowsmitli,” which now has a signed waiting list of 41 names. The book standing next highest in popularity with the students is “Dark Laughter,” Sherwood . An derson ’s • recent novel It has a waiting list of 24 names. “Dark Laughter,” is the story of Bruce Dudley, a man of poetic temperament who leaves his wife in Chicago and masquerades as a fac tory hand in an Indiana town where he has lived as a child. Th'e title refers to the chorus of negroe songs and laughter that sounds through the book. Mrs. Mable McClain, librarian, believes that the popularity of “Dark Laughter,” is due chiefly to its neurotic appeal. It is writ ten in the characteristic Anderson style, but has been read much more by students than “Story Teller’s Tale.” Two other leading books at the library are, “The Constant Kym pth,” by Margaret Kennedy, and “The Professor’s House',” by Willa Gather. By comparing the list of books most read in the library with the list of best sellers given out by magazines, Mrs. McClain finds that the students are more discriminat ing than the general public. One or two books occasionally run the same, but the students usually choose a much higher class of lit erature. Section Is Reserved For Oregon Rooters In Seattle Stadium Fifteen hundred seats at the thirty-five yard line in the Se attle stadium have been reserved for Oregon students and gradu ates for the Thanksgiving day game between Oregon-Wasliing ton, according to Fred Martin, yell king. These tickets which are regu larly priced at $2.50 are being sold to Oregon students at $1.50. The yell king asks that a large number uf Oregon students make , the trip to help in the rooters section. Fred Martin will be unable to make the trip, but Fred Hen dricks will have charge in his ab sence. Tickets are now on sale at the graduate manager’s office. ‘standMUr’ is WORK OF STUDENTS Carved Figure to Occupy Niche in Arts Building Work on a figure destined to be called the “Standard Bearer” is at present occupying much of the time of Miller Bruhn, student in the de partment of fine arts on the cam pus. The original model was made by Paul Walters, ex-student in the University. Mr. Avard Fairbanks and Mr. Bruhn have recently com pleted casting of the figure, and now the work of carving it in wood, is to be the task of Mr. Bruhn. Upon completion, the fig ure, which measures about three feet in height, will be placed in a niche in the south side of the art building facing the court. There are two such niches. The one just mentioned is situated on the left side of the small balcony on the south side of the building. The other corresponds with it but is sit uated on the right side of tic bal cony. It is the intention of the heads of the department to place another figure identical to the one now in-the process of construction, in the remaining niche. The figure represents a Boman standard bearer, his arms rigidly extended, with hands firmly clasp ed around the staff of the stand ard which rests between his feet. The banners now hanging on the wall in the hallway of the normal arts department will be 'inserted, when the statue is completed which will probably be sometime in the spring. REGISTRATION OF ARTS COLLEGES ANNOUNCED Nearly half of the 2752 students on the campus, or 1324, are major ing i|U the college of literature, science, and the arts, including pre law students, according to statis tics just given out by the regis trar’s office.

JUNIOR CLASSTO HOLD MEETING IN VIELARD TONIGHT “Shine Day” Tomorrow; Team Captains Will Give Out Tickets To Workers Proceeds To Go Toward A Thanksgiving Fund For Needy People of Eugene An important meeting of the jun ior corn's will be held tonight at 7:15 in Villard hall. The annual Junior Shine Day is to be discussed, and it is very necessary that all juniors be present, according to James Johnson, class president. Junior Shine Day is given every year by the junior class, and to morrow is the day when everyone is expected by the juniors to come to the campus wearing shoes in need of a shine. The proceeds are to go toward a Thanksgiving fund for the poor people of Eugene. The cus tom of Junior Sliine Day began four years ago, when Jimmy Meek was president of the class. Tickets Given Out The following committee is in charge of the “shines:” Verne Dolts, chairman: Lois Le Roche, ticket sales; Ralph Staley, Bob Love, Bud Christensen, John Bos well, Earle Chiles, Audrey Lundy, Mary McKinnon, Katherine Graef, Edith Shell, and Virginia Keeny, team captains, and Bee Harden, pu blicity. Tickets are to be given out by the team captains tonight, to different members of. the class to sell. All class members are ask ed to cooperate, in making the day a success, and are requested to wear some vivid costume, ^repre sentative of the dress of Spain or Italy. Talks To Be Made Talks will be given Wednesday noon at the different houses, and it is hoped that every house will reach the 100 per cent mark in the sale of tickets. The tickets will be 10 cents, and 15 cents will be charged to polish a pair of boots. The tic ket stub with a number on it will be given on each one receiving a shine, and the person holding the lucky number will receive a prize. SENIOR’S ARTICLE PUBLISHED An article written by Margaret Kressman, senior in the school of journalism, entitled “Town and College Join Forces in Recreational Program,” is published in the No vember copy of the American City. The article outlines and explains the system used by the University school of physical education in han dling the recreation problem for Eugene’s children. Two cuts of children appearing with instructors in the gymnasium are printed with the article.

Beta Theta Pi and Friendly hall ran a close second, obtaining honorable men tion. The winning sign consisted of an illuminated representation of a section of the grandstand, pic turing the yell leaders, two blocks of seats filled with spec tators, with stunts being given in ■ tlie middle section. This was shown against a lemon yellow “O” and green background. The prize was awarded for no velty and ingenuity, according to the committee who judged: Jean nette Calkins, alumni secretary, Prof. W.

SEcailOND OF SPORTS OPEN Intra-Mural Basketball Now Begins Eliminations FIVE TEAMS SCHEDULED Two Games Will be Played This Afternoon Today the second round of the intra-mural athletic basketball sch edule opens. Two teams representing the best maple court material from the Beta Theta Pi and the Bowery boys, both well equipped for displaying unusual sights on a basketball court, will tangle in the opener. Sigma Chi will put its fighting five or more on the floor against the Theta Chi’s in the second gruel ling contest, which starts promptly at four o’clock, one hour after the opening tussle.' One game is on the slate for to morrow and two more for Thurs day. These games promise to be thrill ing and hair-raising throughout, state the various coaches, as the boys, for _ the second time this sea son, are eating from the boards of a training table. One Meet Next Week Several games during the first round were won in the final minute of play, and at that were won by but a single point margin. Sev eral more close games will prob ably appear this week. Next week, due to the ever pre vailing holidays, only one game will be played, that between the fContinued on page fov*i ERRORS III GRIDE SYSTEM IS FOUND BY REGISTRAR Credit Scale In Different Schools Vary; Division Is Made Into Three Groups Political Science Give Least Number of I’s; Music And Military Top List By The Editor Startling defects in the Univer sity system of grading have been made evident by a departmental segregation of grades recently com piled and released by the regis trar’s office. In many cases Uni versity grades as reported in the printed “scandal sheet” at the end of each term are the result of de partmental policies and are not feme estimates of the scholastic merits of individual students. I In several schools and depart ments a student may be reasonably assured upon registering that Ik is to receive a grade that will be highly creditable to himself. En trance into other departments nar ries an assurance almost as gieat that a IV or a Y or an F will awarded the laboring undcrgra ate. Groups Divided be du report ns printed below represents the total percentage of I, II’s and Ill’s, thus giving a fair indication of the relative severity of the re spective departments. Political science heads the he^ivy casualty group with approximately one fourth receiving I, II’s and Ill’s, one fourth flunking, and the remainder receiving IY, V’s, w th drawals and incompletes. Next in line is philosophy which can scarcely be considered in 1 his list because of the extremely large percentage of withdrawals, m|ore than a third having dropped out. The next group includes thbso schools and departments where the markings would indicate average performance, tiic I, II’s and Ill’s running between 47.85 per cent and 62.44 per cent of the total. Included are Household Arts, Economics, Phys. Education Men, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, Romance Languages, History, Journalism, and Physics. In the third group are those de partments which, after counting withdrawals and incompletes with the low grades, are still atyle to gjive the vast majority of their students far above the line that should in dicate average performance. The list, running from 2.44 to 89.39 per cent of I, II’s and Ill’s includes, Germanic Languages, Law, Zoology, Business AIVninistration, Psycho logy, Architecture, Phys. Ed.

Better get on the bike then, because the big annual affair is ouly five days away. For next Saturday, November • 21, is the day of all days for members of the sophomore class. Then it is for tjfe first time that they func tion as a class in a social way. Reports from those in charge of the affair indicate that this year’s dance will be one of the best of all campus affairs. Elab orate plans for decorations are being worked out by Ab Law rence, who is in charge. The committee wishes the as istance of all men of the class to help decorate. Any sophomore woman who desires to help may get in touch with Connie Roth at the Kappa Alpha Theta house. craomInts APPROVE HALL PLAN Promotion of Study Is Aim Of New Movement By far the larger proportion of the graduate students answering questionnaires sent out to them this fall by the committee appointed to investigate the matter of a grad uate hall, were in favor of such a living organization for the grad uate students on the Oregon cam pus. Bighty-five questionnaires were sent to the graduate students, and 37 replies were received. However, only 35 of tho answers are included in the totals compiled, as the last two questionnaires came in later than the others. > Twenty-ejjjht declare they would prefer to live in a graduate hall instead of at a private residence; one person answers that that he would not prefer the hall, without giving any reason; two said they were married, while four did not answer the question. The average room rent, according to the questionnaires, was $11.70 for the 28 who gave the amount. Throe lived at home, ono under similar conditions, and three did not answer the question. Twenty-nine graduate students quoted their board, giving figures ranging from $15 to $40 per month, the average being $26.10 Twenty eight v^ere in favor of table board in connection with the hall, while the other seven did not answor. The presence of men and women in the same hall, segregated into different wings of the building, would not lead to distraction from their work, believe 28 of the grad uate students, although their an swers are sometimes . uncertain on this score. Tweyty-seven think that a sep arate hall for graduates would pro mote better scholastic work, due to contact with earnest students; to the likely presence of faculty mem bers in the hall; to the contact with distinguished men who could be brought there, and to the increased possibility of privacy. One person held the opposit® view, while seven did not answer. BIG SISTER COMMITTEE MEETS TO MAKE PLANS All lieutenants and captains of the Big Bister committee of Wom en’s League are asked by Kathryn Ulrich, chairman, to meet with her this afternoon in Alumni hall, at 5 o’clock. As it is one of the most important meetings which the com mittee has held, Miss Ulrich is an xious that there bo full attend ance. Plans are to be discussed for the Big Sister tea which will be given tomorrow afternoon in stead of the usual Woman’s League tea. Other problems will be dis cussed and reports given. 'This afternoon the information table at Mrs. Esterly’s office will b3 available for the use of cither Big or Little Sisters who are hav ing problems to solve. Last week the response was very encourag ing, Miss Ulrich reports, and it lias been decided that it will be con tinued. Several girls who had no Big Sisters came in to ask about them, and Big Sisters came in to report success. ■Him is BUTONE GAMETD WIN CONFERENCE Huskies Not Underrating . Oregon Fight; Event of Last Year Remembered Stanford Now Preparing To v Meet Bears And Repeat Trick of Seattle Team Pacific coast conference football stands this week in a precarious position. One game separates the Washing ton Husky from the coveted honor of riding its pennant on the top rung of the coast ladder. This game against the University of Oregon eleven appears easy. Game Not Easy However, the Washington team is far from calling this game easy, according to Coach Bagshaw, as one great^ experience was learned last year w^;n the highly touted Husky crowd came down to Eugene as favorites only to trek home on the short end of the score. A loss would put the Husky in a tie with California unless Stanford does the unexpected and topples the Bear a little further from the throne lie held in football circles the past six years. Nevers To Play Stanford rested easy last Satur day and with the big Nevers turn ing out this week is preparing to do the unexpected wheii they line up against the Bear next Saturday. At present Stanford is setting next to Washington with Califor nia, Oregon Aggies and Southern California in a tripple tie for third place. The Aggies by winning two and dropping but one conference strug gle have a slim chanco of tieing for titular honors providing Oregon tumbles the Huskies and Stanford is downed by California. Four Teams Out This seems almost impossible in so far that the Beavers play the Idaho team in Moscow and then en train for California where -the Southern California team will fur nish competition. Amphibian club is giving prac tices on its entrance tests every Tuesday night from 7:.'i0 to 8:30 in the tank in the Woman’s build ing. “The essentials for making the club are speed and form,” says Miss E. Troemer, swimming coach. “We, are going to allow plenty of practices before we give the final tests, so that anyone who is a fair ly good swimmer will have ample opportunity to make the club.” The last three practices havo been devoted to work on lied Cross life saving methods, as a Red Cross certificate is the primary require ment for entrance. In tlio dives for form and strokes for speed, plenty of choice has been allowed. The applicant must pass four stand ard dives and one optional with an average score of 85 points. For speed she will be required to swim two lengths of the pool with any two of the following strokes in the time specified: crawl, 34 seconds; side, 38; trudgepn, 3(1; English "over arm, 37; breast, 40; trudgeon crawl, 35. ‘ Besides the regular weekly prac tice held on Tuesday evening, as pirants may practice on Tuesday and Thursday of this week and Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of next week at 5:00. Arrange ments may also be made with the swimming instructors to enter their classes for extra practices. Coaching on Tuesday night is given by Miss Troemel, and mem bers of the elub. Last week there were five out for practice. The club has no limit to its mem bership but hopes to include all good swimmers on the campus in its organization.
