Now That
the Battle
Is Over
Stories 0 f The Oregon
Gridmen Who Turned
The Purple Tornado
Into A Gentle Zephyr
Now that the tumult and the
shouting has died, and the captains
and the coaches have departed, Ore
gon is glad that the game ended as
it did. If Oregon won, Washington
would have been pulled from its
perch at the top of the ladder into
a tie with Stanford for the cham
pionship. The Oregon players were
unanimous in pronouncing the
Huskies the cleanest, hardest-play
ing . aggregation they have faced
this fall. They are real champions.
The Oregon players spent the
morning preceding the game very
quietly. The men passed the hours
lolling about the hotel lobby, in
specting Seattle museums and points
of interest, and touring the shops.
There was an atmosphere of quiet
confidence and determination. John
McMullen and “Bouquet” Vitus re
turned from a shopping expedition
with brilliant rings containing re
splendent settings. If the stone in
“Mac’s” ring isn’t a real diamond,
he is out $1.12.

When Washington went south to
play California, a Portland scribe
chronicled the fact that the major
ity of the Huskies were adorned in
the latest model, balloon tire, golf
knickers. When Oregon went
north, these garments were conspic
uous by their absence. Even Sher
man Smith was clad in campus
cords when the train pulled out.

Countless thousands narrowly
missed hearing the strains of
“Mighty Oregon” Thanksgiving eve
ning, as the Oregon squad was
scheduled to sing over the radio in
the Marine Orill at Seattle. Owing
to complications in the broadcasting
apparatus, this feature was omit
f. • •
Coach Dick Simith received the
greatest ovation an Oregon coach
ever received when he entered the*
room where the Oregon team was
banqueting after the game. The
players leaped up and m£de the
well-known welkin resound with
mighty cheers for the Oregon men
tor. They all assured and reassured
him that they wanted him back next
year, but Smith declared that Ore
gon needs a full time coach, and he
would have to step aside. Every
one was sorry to see “Dick” pass
out as he is exceedingly popular
among players and fans.
Toastmaster Shields called on
Dick Smith, Bill Hayward, Virgil
Earl, Baz Williams, Bob Mautz,
Ken Bailey, Louie Anderson, Jim
Powers, Ed Kelly, John McMullen,
Larry Smyth, Hojmer Dixon, and
Sam Wilderman for after-dinner
orations, and some sparkling offer
ings followed.
^Tlie funny thing called a “jinx”
has followed the Washington team,
and it has been Oregon that has had
the “jinx” on the Huskies for the
last two years. They felt it. It
was evident before the game. The
Washington players felt it and sup
erstitiously, like football teams are,
they were affected by it. That
“jinx” is going to mean a lot in the
future for it will draw crowds to
see it. The Washington players
tried to laugh it off but could not.
Well, anyway, Oregon only lack
ed one point of winning the “Cham
pionship of the World.”

Seniors And Freshmen Win
Initial Meets
Contention for the class champ
ionship in swimming began in ear
nest last night when the first

time. The seniors defeated 'the
sophomores by a 45.5 to 21.5 score;
the freshman, the juniors by a 47.5
to 19.5 score.
From these scores it would seem
that the freshman-senior contest
scheduled for December 10 would
b<v a hard fou*ght battle from start
to finish. But the time made by
the winners of the meets indicates
that the seniors have the advan
tage over the freshmen. Janet
Wood of the senior first team won
the side stroke, two lengths in 31.9
seconds, Olive Banks of the fresh
man team won first place against
the juniors in this event, making
the two lengths in 38.8 seconds.
Elizabeth Lounsbury of the sen
ior team won the breast stroke in
ten seconds less than tho freshman
winner, Olive Banks, who took
43.8 seconds for the event. In the
diyes Elizabeth Lounsbury, senior
team, won from the sophomores by
a 9.8 score, while the score for the
freshman winner, Lois McCook, was
7.8. '
In the back stroke, however, Do
rothy Brown of the freshman team
won the event in 16.9 seconds, but
the time for the senior winner, Vi
ona Pyrtz, was 17.2 Again, in the
five length swim the freshman com
pares favorably with the seniors.
The freshman winner, Kathryn Ker
shaw swam the five lengths in ono
minute 32.9 seconds, while the sen
ior winner Elizabeth Lounsbury
swam it in one minute, 32 seconds.
The sophomores took first place
in the crawl, Virginia Lounsbury
coming in first, and Beatrice Eish
second. Kathryn Kershaw tjook
first place from the juniors, and
Lois McCook, of the freshman team
took second place. Florence Hur
ley sophomore took first place in
the plunge in the senior sophomore
contest making 50.1 feet. Kathryn
Sclincll, junior, won this evont from
the freshman by a 47.5 record.
The senior relay team composed
of E. Lounsbury, J7 Wood, C. Mar
tain and B. Fish won in this event
from the sophomores. O. Banks,
K. Kershaw, D. Brown and L. Mc
Cook composing the freshman team
won the relay from the juniors.
At the last meeting of the Allied
Arts League, the tentative scheme
of purchasing smocks for the en
tire school of architecture and al
lied arts was approved and accept
ed. It was decided that two kinds
of smocks should be ordered;
smocks for special occasions, rep
resenting the different departments
by colors, and other Bmocks for ev
eryday work.
Other business brought up at the
meeting considered the purpose of
th^. new bulletin board to be built
in the lower hall of the architec
ture building.
‘‘We want the students to use
this board for things that they
think will be of interest to the
school. If you have a design which
you think deserves a little atten
tion, or if you have -anything else
of interest, post it on the board,”
said Prank CH Roehr, president of
the league.
