McEwan Putting Squad
In Shape for Badgers
“Live Tackles” Used to
Spectators admitted to Hayward
field on visitor’s day Wednesday saw
Captain McEwan drive his regulars
and subs through an afternoon of
gruelling practice which ended in
one of the toughest scrimmages on
record this season.
Another strenuous workout this
afternoon and McEwan will have
his grid warriors on a fighting edge
for the Pacific contest Saturday.
After the Willamette melee last
week, the Badger game can be re
garded as a practice tilt. Oregon will
no doubt roll up another string of
touchdowns, but the contest will
serve to iron out the wrinkles and
polish off the rough edges for the
big game against the Huskies on
October 9. This hurdle looms as the
acid test of whether Oregon will
take a place on a level with other
colleges in the conference.
Jones Doing Kicking
There may be no rest for the
wicked, but there is less for a foot
ball player, as Gene Vidal, Ellinger
and “Spike” Leslie hammered the
backs and linesmen through an un
relenting period of practice. Mautz
kept his ends busy catching passes.
Wetzel, Jones, and Fred Harrison
vied with one another in kicking
practice. The punting of the three
backs was fairly consistent and av
eraged over 40 yards. The forward
pass is not being neglected by
Vidal and Mautz. Woodie and Mim
naugh doing the throwing, and the
backs, Wetzel, Vitus, Jones, and
Burnell, alternating with the wing
men, Sherm Smith, Slauson, Pope,
Greer, Jamison, Biggs, and Hughes,
grabbing the pigskin out of the air,
are becoming proficient in the aerial
phase of the game.
“Live Tackles” Used
Under the leadership of Ellinger
the entire squad went through a
brisk series of calethetics, and that
not sufficing, they circled the grid
iron at a fast pace. “Live tackl
ing,” with backs carrying the ball
attempting to evade tackJers ar
ranged across tho field in rows, su
perceded the dangling canvas dum
Coach McEwan has made no an
nouncement of a starting line-up
Tryouts for Glee Club
And Orchestra Today
There will be a continuation
of yesterday’s try-outs for mem
bership in the men’s and women’s
glee clubs this afternoon from
4:30 to 6:00 o’clock in the school
of music building. All girls who
have not tried out, and wish to
do so, are urged to report at this
time, according to Eugene Carr,
who is in charge. About forty
girls were present yesterday. The
men’s dee club is under the
charge of John Stark Evans.
Old members of the women’s
glee club are asked to report at
the second and third try-outs, to
assist. The second try-out will
be ho.d Friday at 4:30, and the
third Monday at the same hour.
Try-outs will bo held today and
tomorrow from 4:30 to 5:30 for
the university orchestra, which
will be composed of fifty pieces.
Far more material has turned out
than ever before, according to
Bex Underwood, director, but
there is more material of ability
on the campus that has not yet
reported, especially among those
who play the stringed instru
against Pacific university, but it
will probably bo approximately the
same that over-ran Willamette last
week, with a few substitutions
Open House Schedule
Ready at Dean’s Office
A representative from each men’s
house should call at the Dean of
Women’s office today to get their
schedule for open house, is announc

| Women’s league. The committee has
I been working on the program for
All houses will receive in their
usual places except Chi Omegas who
will occupy the Kappa Sigma house.
Law School Majors
Increased This Year
Registration in the law school
shows an increase of 38 per cent
this year. Thirty-six law majors
were signed up this term.
Dean W. G. Hale says there is a
very marked tendency to prolong
the period of preparation for the
law school. The department en
courages this tendency, as the wider
background of general knowledge
promotes the possibilities for great
er future success in the field of law.
Selected as Oregon
Oregon’s debate season will open
with a contest between the Univer- ]
sity of Sydney, Australia, and the
Oregon varsity, Friday, October 15,
at the Methodist church at Eugene.
Oregon has the negative of the ques
tion: Resolved: That it is to the
best interests of the United States
to adopt a cabinet form of govern
ment. The following night the same
opponents will debate at Portland,
by radio from station KGW. The
subject will be the liquor question.
The University of Sydney repre
sentatives will make a debating
tour of the United States. The de
bates here and at Portland are two
' " the many they will give. The
Oregon debaters who will act as
their opponents were selected by
University authorities during (the
summer. Jack Hempstead, junior in
journalism, and Benoit McCroBkey,
junior in pre-law, will uphold the
negative for Oregon over the radio.
Ralph Bailey, first year law, and
Donald Beelar, junior in pre-law,
meet the Australians in Eugene.
General plans for the debate here
have been made by debate coaches
J. K. Horner and J. Stanley Gray,
and are already under way, accord
ing to Jack Hempstead, general
forensic manager. The triangle, the

bate will be continued.
The new Oregon system, originat
ed last year by J. Stanley Gray, j
and tried out in the TJtah-Oregon
debate, will be used by Oregon var- ;
sity debaters throughout. The in- j
dividual characteristic of this sys- I
tem is that it allows to each side !
the privilege of firing short decisive
questions at the other side.
On January 20 there will be a dual
debate with Stanford, and Septem
ber 24, the annual northwestern tri
angle. The complete list of the ora- j
torical contests, including subjects :
and dates, will be given later.
Managers in addition to Hemp- !

It is expected that a record-break
ing list of varsity men and women
and freshmen men and women de
baters will take part in the coming
try-outs at which teams for the en
tire year will be chosen.
