VOLUME XXVII UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1925 NUMBER 43 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 ted. 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.” ELECTED TO “Y” CABINET The election of Bill Kidwell as chairman of the social committee of the Y.
