    Warm Time
Promised at
Frosh Parade
No Slow Moments for
Sophomore “Guests”
Saturday
Prompt Arrival at
Start is Demanded
Hayward Field Scene for
Annual Mix
MANY will be called but few
will be frozen because it will
be a hot affair when the frosh and
sophs meet at the Sigma Chi corner
Saturday morning at 8 o’clock.
To-Ko-Lo, sophomore men’s or
ganization, is in charge of the par
ade, which will be everything a par
ade should be, with freaks, color,
trainers, and frosh in abundance,
according to Les Johnson, president
of To-Ko-Lo.
A reception committee will meet
all frosh who are tardy and fail to
arrive at the appointed corner at
8. Few absences are expected be
cause a town crier will announce
the event early in the morning and
a vigilance committee will see that
they are there. That is only part
of the committee’s plans.
Costume Party Planned
When the frosh arrives at the
corner he is instructed to appear as
follows: beginning from top to bot
tom, around his neck will be a gar
ter, the left pant leg will be rolled
up, he shall carry a green lid,
a package of cigarettes, and one
dime. All who are improperly at
tired will be dressed in barrels and
other suitable rainment. That is
also committee orders.
From the corner the troupe will
proceed to the “O” on the top of
Skinner’s butte. At the bottom of
the hill two toll takers, Bert Mc
Elroy and A1 Boyden, will accept
the dimes and all remaining cigar
ettes.
Sophs to Give Aid
Paint will be served at the “O”
and after the “O” has been refin
ished the frosh will take turns play
ing shoot-the-shoots down the fa
mous letter. At the bottom of the
hill the sophomore class will be in
the receiving line. Not the kind
they have at teas, but the kind the
Indians used to show the white men.
It may here be stated that the frosh
will be urged to make haste, and
every effort will be made to assist
them down the line.
The frosh will then march through
town and to Villard hall, and all
will be merry for they will sing
Oregon songs and shout Oregon yells.
The Oregon seal ceremony at Vil
lard hall will be next on the pro
gram, according to the committee’s
plans. The frosh, each in turn, will
pay homage to the University of
Oregon, by kissing the great seal
of the University. Again they will
run the gauntlet and proceed on to
Hayward field to take part in the
underclass mix.
special Hosts named
The vigilance committee, which is
in charge of the parade, consists of
the following men: Bob Foster, Lyle
Beddick, Bill Crawford, David Bau
man, Arthur Anderson, A1 Boyden,
George Barons, Wendell Gray, Bill
Sullivan, Bert McElroy, and Ell
wood Enke.
The senior cops, policemen of the
campus, will be on hand to see that
everything is run according to the
regular rules for such a parade.
Seniors to Publish
Book on P. Campbell
As Class Memorial
The senior memorial for this year
will be the publishing and distri
bution of a book on the life of
President Campbell. Final plans
for the financing of the volume will
be decided at a senior class meeting
today at 5 o’clock in Guild hall.
This book was written by Dr. Joseph
Schafer, who is an eminent histor
ian, having been head of the history
department of the University for
years, and who is now superinten
dent -of the Wisconsin Historical
society.
Plans in regard to senior apparel
which will distinguish the fourth
year student from any other on the
campus will be formed. Committee
appointments will be made for the
senior smoker, an annual event dur
Homecoming. There will also be a
discussion of finances.
“I hope everyone takes an inter
est in this first meeting, as it is of
great importance to the class in
future years,” stated Earle Chiles,
president of the senior class.
Social Swims Again
In Vogue This Year
“"W^at d° y°u say we set
W together?” is the name
of a latest jazz hit.
That is also what the men and
women of the University have
been thinking so, on the strength
of it, social swims will be held
on Friday nights during the com
ing year.
Fnr the benefit of the uninit
iated swims were held last year
in the Woman’s building tank
and met with great success. An
open invitation is extended to
men and women and bathing suits
ire furnished at the tank and
life guards will be on hand to
oversee the frolic and teach be
ginners the gentle art of swim
ming without swallowing too
much water.

Casey Reports
Magazine Work
Full of Interest
American Boy Demands
Stories of Action
And Character
Ralph D. Casey, associate profes
sor in the school of journalism, spent
six weeks during the summer as
editorial assistant on the staff of
the American Boy magazine, pub
lished in Detroit.
Mr. Casey read manuscripts, in
cluding serials, short stories and spe
cial articles and wrote for the April
number of the magazine a 4500-word
interview with Dean Cromwell,
coach of the University of Southern
California track team, national in
ter-collegiate champion for the past
two years. In this article Mr. Crom
well tells of his training methods
and gives valuable hints on track
and field technique.
George F. Pierrot, former national
president of Sigma Delta Chi, is
managing editor of the American
Boy and he invited Mr. Casey to
join the staff last summer.
“The experience on the magazine
was very interesting,” said Mr.
Casey. “I think I obtained a good
insight into magazine needs and
magazine methods, thanks to the
kindness of Mr. Pierrot and his
staff. Those who work for the mag
azine are like members of a club;
friendliness, informality and good
spirit prevail throughout.
“As the American Boy is appeal
ing to an older group of boy read
ers—of high school and early col
lege age as well as to somewhat
| younger clientele—the fiction de
mands were high. Stories desired
were those usually with plenty of
plot and action, but the magazine
demanded good character and set
ting as well.”
Mental Tests Tell
Tale of Scholarship
Mental tests do count,
freshmen! If you are skep
tical, take a look at the nice,
neat correlation between the men
tal tests of last year’s freshmen
and their grades, as announced
by I)r. Howard E. Taylor of the
psychology department. (And
bear in mind that the same tests
were used this year.) Here they
are: 34 per cent were low in test
score, and also below average in
grades, and 34 per cent had high
scores in both mental tests and
year’s grades. Tho percentage
that had high test scores and low
grades was only 18.
Freshmen can obtain their rela
tive mental scores from Dr. Tay
lor, after October 15 at his office.
Pacific Game
To Test Power
Of Oregon Squad
McEwan to Polish Eleven
For Husky Contest
Next Week
With the first Pacific coast con
ference game of October 9 against
the University of Washington still
in the offing but continually grow
ing nearer, Coach John J. McEwan
is leaving practically no stone un
turned in the way of preliminary
preparation.
Tomorrow afternoon at 2:30 his
Webfoot eleven will oppose the
shifty Pacific university Badgers in
the second pre-conference game to
be played on Hayward field this
year. Coach Leo Frank, Badger
mentor, is coming with ten letter
men in his fold and several capable
regulars from last year’s squads.
About five years ago Frank was a
member of the University’s physical
education staff and nothing would
please him so much as to see his
prodigies drag the lemon-yellow into
the mire of defeat. Last year the
Oregon varsity defeated the Forest
Grove team 13 to 0.
Since the beginning of this fall’s
grid practice Coach Frank has had
a squad of 25 out of which he must
mould a winning team. The ten
lettermen making the trip include
Captain Horn, tackle; Bryant, cen
ter; Pollock and Ingles, ends; Em
erson, quarterback; Frost, halfback;
Tucker, fullback; Kannow and Irvin,
tackles; and Bennett, fullback.
Coach Frank and his assistant, Les
lie Hoar, will have to build the rest
of his team from the freshman turn
out and Oddie, Beckett, Jess Tucker,
Baker and Tuor, who were on the
regular squad, but did not make let
ters.
Coach Frank’s gridiron teams are
known for their deception. Each
year the Pacific university eleven
produces a new set of trick plays
that keeps the opposing team on
e4ge throughout the tilt. This
year’s attack is built mainly around
Emerson, signal barker, and Tucker,
fullback.
“The Contrast” Selected
By Florence Wilbur
For Early Production
“The Contrast,” by Royal] Tyler,
which has been selected by Miss
Florence Wilbur, instructor ^n
drama, for early production, is a
historical comedy bringing in the
typical Yankee.
Miss Wilbur believes “The Con
trast” is one of the most interest
ing plays ever attempted by the
department, based as it is on the
assumption that to be well educated
one must be “finished” in Europe.
It was first produced in St. John’s
theater, New York, early in 1787.
“This year,” Miss Wilbur asserts,
“the department has some excel
lent drawing material, as many of
those who were active in University
dramatics last year have returned.
I have several competent assistants,
among them Perry Douglas, stage
manager, and Harold Whitlock, busi
ness manager. I hope to have this
play completed and presented be
fore Thanksgiving so that we can
start work on our Christmas pro
gram which is to express the typ
ical Yuletide spirit.
“So far, ‘Napoleon’s Barber,’ by
Arthur Caesar, is only play chosen
for the sophomores. This group will
produce a number of one-act plays
during the early part of November.
Casting will begin as soon as pos
sible after the cast for ‘The Con
trast’ has been definitely decided.
“ ‘The Contrast’ is an elaborately
costumed play,” added Miss Wilbur,
“and will compare favorably with
‘Liliom’ which was produced last
year in Guild theater.”
Alonzo Jasmin

Rielis Also Win
First Year Students
To Meet President Hall
Yearlings Get Instructions
For Mix by Biggs
I DEFEATING five jsfcher cancel-"
dates, Alonzo Jasmin was elect
ed president of the freshman class
at a meeting held yesterday after
noon in Villard hall. Eleanor Flan
agan was elected vice-president,
Agnes Farris, secretary, and Ralph
Riehs, treasurer.
Other aspirants for class offices
were: Francis Neff, Sidney Dobbin,
Richard Hawlinson, Kenton Hamak
er, and James Terry for presidency;
Emery Miller, vice-president; Eloise
^chade for secretary, and Carl For
strom and William Doyle for treas
urer.
Previous to the meeting of the
1200 class members, two nominating
committees were appointed by Hugh
Biggs, president of the associated
students. These two committees had
nominated complete tickets for the
election and the names of the can
didates selected were placed on bal
lots which were distributed among
the members of the class.
The privilege of making nomina
tions from the floor was granted
and Alonzo Jasmin and James Terry
were nominated for president and
William Doyle for treasurer. The
candidates chosen before the meet
ing were introduced by Larry Shaw
and Bob Porter, chairmen of the
two committees appointed by Mr.
Biggs. Each person introduced took
a seat on the stage.
The men nominated from the floor
joined the group of candidates on
the stage, and speeches were made
by the six presidential aspirants.
Each candidate asked that all
members of the class co-operate
with the man who received the elec
tion. By virtue of its number one
brought out the fact that the fresh
man class was “bound to become a
great power” since it contains one
tliird of the students enrolled in the
University this term.
Dean H. Walker addressed the
freshmen at the opening of the
meeting and complimented them on
their number before announcing the
frosh parade and underclass meet
scheduled for Saturday morning.
Each freshman was instructed to be
at the top of Skinner’s butte at
8:30 equipped with a green cap and
cigarettes for the upper classmen to
smoke.
An invitation was given by Dean
Virginia Judy Esterly asking the
freshmen to come to Alumni hall
Friday afternoon between 4 and 6
O’clock to meet President Arnold
Bennett Hall. She assured them they
would receive food, not “tea.”
The members of the nominating
committees acted as election boards
for counting the votes cast.

Webfoot Will Waddle
In Homecoming Rain
\T7ITH a quack here and a
™ ^ quack quack there every
body will quack quack as soon
is Jupe instigates the sky juice
falling and plans are made for
Homecoming. Duck season is
now open to members of tho
hunted group but in the Uni
versity it is an open season—
open to all members who keep
their eyes open, for with them
closed nothing can be seen. The
ducks are ducky birds but not
foul ns one might judge. In ap
pearance they are not dissimilar
to other victims of the Darwinian
theory with the exception that
their toes are never far apart for
they stick by each other. Ah!
the Webfoot will appear during
Homecoming week and then all
will be quite ducky.
Route Schedule
For Open House
Now Complete
Chi Omegas Receive at
Kappa Sigma; Three
Arts Club Listed
The routing schedule of jinen’s
houses for open house to be held
Saturday night has been completed
by Katherine Ulrich and Georgia
Benson, of the women’s committee.
The program starts the men on
their way at 7 o ’clock, allowing a
ten minute visit at each of the 22
women’s organizations.
“There will be very little retrac
ing of steps,” said Miss Ulrich,
“but the men are cautioned to keep
on schedule time, and to go to the
next house at the expiration of their
time allowance, even though no
other group has arrived to take their
place.”
The routing schedule was arrang
ed by a committee consisting of
Frances Morgan, Katherine Ulrich,
Anne Runes, Dean Judy Esterly,
Georgia Benson, and Mrs. G. D.
Oberteuffer.
Because their house is yet uncom
pleted, the Chi Omega’s will be
hostesses at the Kappa Sigma house.
Three Arts club at Fourteenth and
University street will be included
on the route of women’s houses.
Thacher cottage will receive the
men at their house at 1370 Onyx
street, instead of being located at
Hendricks hall as previously.
In addition to the men’s fratern
ity groups and Oregon club, a sep
arate group of independent stu
dents will be in the line of march.
Three Hundred
Spanish Volumes
Added to Stacks
Library Receives Many
French, Italian Books
In Collection
A colloStion of 300 Spanish books
by both old and modern Spanish
authors and playwrights for use in
the romance language department
has been received by the library. A
few volumes in French have also
been received and others in French
and Italian have been'ordered but
have not come.
One Spanish set is “Clasicos Cas
tellanos” in sixty-six volumes and
is an up-to-date edition of Spanish
masterpieces. Another set of sev
enty-one volumes is the very valu
able “Biblioteca de Autores Espan
oles” valuable because it contains
all of the old editions. Five vol
umes of the “JVueva Biblioteca”
will serve as the beginning of this
collection of twenty-live volumes
which the department hopes to own
in the future.
The remaining portion includes
fifteen volumes in the Boyal Acad
emy edition of the “Obras de Lope
de Vega,” Spain’s greatest play
wright; six volumes of the “Obras
de Santa Teresa de Jesus;” seven
teen of “Don Jose Maria de Per
eda;” twenty of “Palacio Valdes;”
thirty-live of Pardo Bazan, who is
perhaps Spain’s greatest woman
novelist; and seventy-three of Perez
Galdos.
Only the one collection, “Clasicos
Castellanos,” has been catalogued
and ready for use by the students.
The Biblioteca is ready to be cat
alogued but the other volumes will
not be ready for some time.
Dr. Bay P. Bowen, head of the
department, is very much interested
in the development of this depart
ment and in the purchase of new
books.
Initial Speech
Made by Hall
To Students
President to Follow Plans
Of Prince Campbell for
A “Greater Oregon”
Introductory Talk Made
By Sheldon and Biggs
Students Warned Against
Bigotry by Head-Elect
rT'HE auditorium of the Woman’s
-I building yesterday was filled to
overflowing with members of the
student body and faculty, who lis
tened to Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall,
president-elect of the University,
when he pointed out to the students
fundamental guideposts on the road
to a “Greater Oregon,” in his ad
dress on “Leadership.”
Dr. Hall in the capacity of a stu
dent leader at his initial assembly
address, spoke of the possibilities
for an era of growth for the Uni
versity in the same way which
President Campbell pointed the way
to future growth when ho appeared
for the last time April 23, 1924 and
talked from his chair concerning the
launching of the student union
drive to a similar group of students.
Hall Attacks Bigotry
“Conviction without bigotry,
strength $of character without ibru
tality, faith without credulity, sym
pathy without sentimentality are
the principles which will lead to a.
high type of spiritual and intellec
tual life, a larger vision and abun
dant achievement. Youthful enthus
iasm will be my inspiration, and my
ambition is service to you,” declared
Dr. Hall.
In discussing what he considers a
requisite for developing leadership,
Dr. Hall warned students of the
curse of bigotry which he defined as
a fixed opinion usually based on
nothing more tfym tradition. Con
viction, on the other hand, he de
fined as the thought and idea result
ing from careful study.
Cynicism Lacks Character
“Strength of character is also im
portant,” ho said in dealing with
the problems of life. “Yet thjit
strength must come without any
loss in gentleness of character and
an insight into the finer things of
life. A man lacking in strength of
character and gentleness and poise,
often develops a cynical attitude to
ward life,” lie said.
ihe speaker illustrated the value
of strength of character in the ex
ample of Abraham Lincoln who
when disaster threatened the states
was the one man to keep his head
and definitely to meet the crisis.
^ ou must be one who can con
struct a philosophy of life. Form
a definite attitude toward the prob
lems of life and then form them
into fixed habits of thought and
conduct. Crystalize them into char
acter.”
Faith in Mastery
As the third point essential to
the development of leadership, Dr.
Hal! urged faith, that is, belief in
ones self and in all people. He urged
a faith based on science, not on
credulity.
To have faith in ones self is at
tained through a mastery of oncs
self, through self analysis and free
dom from egotism, he said.
A belief in the higher destiny of
man based on a reading of history
leads to faith in humanity, is Dr.
Hall’s opinion. An analysis of the
lives of the men throughout history
who Have made civilization and
have left a permanent influence on
the world, are the men of deep sym
pathy, he said. He pointed out the
(■rent Xazarene as an example of
the power of a spirit of compassion,
as a source of strong leadership.
Preceding Dr. Hall’s address,
Hugh Higgs, president of the A. S.
U. O., in a brief address of welcome
to the students of the University,
offered a “sincere and hearty wel
come to the students for the com
mg year.” He also spoke of the
possibilities which the present school
year offers and which should lead to
a realization of the dreams of the
University.
Two Solos Sung
Dean H. D. Sheldon, of the school
of education, introduced Dr. Wall
as a friend and leader of the stu
dents, a combined business man and
administrator, a college president,
an oracle expected by the public
to speak authoritatively on prob
lems of foreign interest, head of the
faculty and representative of the
University with the public and the
alumni.
Mrs. Prudence Clarke sang two
solos, accompanied by John Stark
