“You notice our freshmen this
year,” advises Philippa Sherman,
one of the editors of the magazine.
■“They’re the most sophisticated, ul
tra blase bunch of babes that have
•come to these parts since I first reg
istered in the University. But I was
a freshman once and I know why
they act that way. It's because
they’re new and scared stiff and
don't want anyone to know about
it. So they put on a bold front
•and cover their timidity with a
worldly-wise appearance.
“And that’s just what ‘Webby’
is doing. His little yellow legs are
frightfully shaky, and he has the
feeblest, most stage-struck quack
that a duck ever owned.
“But it won’t be known for he’s
going to wear brilliant, flaring plum
age never before seen on a barn
yard fowl, there’ll be a twinkle in
his eye, a saucy tilt to his head,
and he’ll have a sophisticated swag
ger that all his brother freshmen
will want to copy.”
Beer Suits and Scarfs j
Insignia of Sophomores
Beer suits, to inspire envy in the
hearts of all men who are not soph
omores, and white scarfs, to be the
pride of all sophomore women, will
soon blaze forth on the campu^ as
the official insignia of the class of
’29. All sophomores at the meet
ing in Villard ‘hall at 4 o ’clock yes
terday afternoon unanimously agreed
on “white and frothy” beer suith
to insure recognition to the “biggest
and best class,” the sophomores; as'
Bobert Foster, president of he class,j
remarked in the meeting, Dean j
Straub said we were “the biggest',
and best class.” Sophomore women
will wear jaunty white silk and
wool, or flannel scarfs, either square
or long and narrow, the size to be;
decided at a meeting later in the i
week. Previous to this year, no |
successful garb for sophomore wom
en has been worn, but this year
“chic” white scarfs to correspond
with the beer suits of the men, will
disinguish sophomore girls from:
all others.
Frosh to Start Work
On Blazing “O” Fire
AS shown in the “burning of
Rome,” and “stove wood,”
something more than a few
matches are needed to make a
big fire. Barrels, boxes, rubbish,
boards, and oil will take the
place of the famous buildings of
Nero’s “spree,” in the freshmen
bonfire on the night of Friday,
October 22, on Skinner’s butte.
All inflamable material which
can be secured will be gathered
on Thursday and Friday of that
week and .members of the
“Frosh” class will be scouting
around for material between now
and then. To the people of the
city goes the plea of the fresh
man class for donations of bon
fire material, the more, the mer
rier. Trucks will call on Thurs
day and Friday of next week for
the donations and the people are
urged to co-operate.
The bonfire, this year, for the
first time, will take the form of
a blazing “O,” and because of
its prominent position upon the
butte, will be visible from all
parts of the town.

that they are still the biggest and
best class in school.”
Swedish Royalty Delayed Eleven Hours
fBy Tardy U, S. Reception Committee
Genevieve Swedenburg, Oregon Student, Tells of
Voyage With Crown Prince and Princess
It isn’t often that a member of
the royalty must wait on his enter
tainers, nor is it the custom to ask
a guest to remain outside of the
door until the host is ready, yet
this is the experience of Crown
Prince Gustavus Adolphus of Swe
den, who, accompanied by the Prin
cess, arrived in the United States
May 28, for a tour of the country
and a visit with government offic
ials. Miss Genevieve Swedenburg,
University of Oregon student, who
made the trip with the Prince on
the Gripsholm, tells the story.
The Prince, a rather remocratic
person, who was as pleased as any
one when his side won a game of
tug-of-war on the trip over, was
nevertheless rather chagrined to
find, upon arrival at the three-mile
limit in New York, that he was a
whole day ahead of time. The re
ception committee would not be
able to meet the Prince and his com
pany until Thursday noon, the
message said.
^he Princess remained in her
suite of rooms with eleven ladies-in
waiting, but the Prince nervously
paced the deck, or conferred with

island ueoaiers xixperienceu
Sydney Heathwood, who is the
leader of the visiting "team, has
been active in election campaign
and other political issues in Aus
tralia. He represented his college
two years ago against the Oxford
debate team. He is connected with
an advertising firm in Australia.
John Godsal is a journalist of note
and has a reputation as a college
debater. The last member of the
squad, Noel McIntosh, is the man
ager of the forensic trio and a mem
ber of the bar of the supreme court
and high court of Australia.
Chances Look Even
In considering the relative cap
abilities of the two teams, J. Stan
lay Gray, debate coach, believes
Oregon to have a fair opportunity of
winning. Oregon defeated the Ox
ford team here two years ago, which
in turn won a verbal victory over
the Australians. Ralph Bailey was
one of the three members of the
squad which met the Oxford men.
Student body tickets will admit
holders to the debate, while towns
people may obtain theirs at the Co
op or Laraway’s music store, the
price being fifty cents.
This affair will be as equally large
an attraction as the Oxford debate
which drew an audience of 2500,
is the opinion of the forensic coach..

Student Makes
Many Voyages
In Frail Canoe
A. Burg, Jr., Traverses
Length of Columbia
For First Time
“It isn’t lonely on the river. I
can't be with people, and so I have
to depend on the river and the sky.
They both are changing every min
ute, and I like to learn their moods.
The sun rises in the morning, and
it’s like seeing an old friend. And
at night, when I draw my canoe
up on a sand bar near the river
bank, and the rain pours down on
me, I think, ‘my roof is leaking,’
that’s all,” said Amos Burg, Jr.,
Burg has recently completed a
trip with Fred Hill, of Spokane,
100Q miles down the inner passage
from Skagway, Alaska, up the Fra
ser River until the current forced
them tp leave the water and portage
by rail to Upper Columbia Lake, the
source of the Columbia River, and
follow that stream to Portland.
Burg, who formerly attended O.
A. C., is registered here in the
School of Journalism. He is a grad
uate of Jefferson high school in
Portland. During the World War
he was with the French navy and
circumnavigated the globe.
In the winter of 1924 he paddled
the length of the Columbia River
from Canada to the Pacific Ocean,
a feat never before accomplished.
Prior to that, he followed the Snake
River from its headwaters to the
ocean. His canoe, “Song o’ the
Wind,” was too badly damaged in
the grand canyon near the mouth of
Wolf Creek on the third day of the
trip to permit him and his compan
ion to continue. With a new canoe,
however, he returned to the river
and finished his journey alone.
At another time he lost his frail
boat in the Cascades of the Colum
bia, when it capsized and threw
him into the water. He swam to a
sand bar, but the “Song o’ the
Winds” was swept down stream.
On one of his trips he paddled
from Livingston, Montana, down

Flaming “O” to
Be Biggest and
Best Bonfire
Display Will Be Seen for
Miles Around; Not
A Substitute
“People who are under the im
pression that we are to have no
Homecoming bonfire this year are
due for a big surprise,” said Don
Bcelar, assistant general chairman
of Homecoming. “It is true that
there will be no bonfire on the cam
pus but if the plans for the flaming
“O” on Skinner’s butte work out
properly we will have the most sen
sational and startling exhibition of
fire ever presented at a Homecoming
rally. It must be understood that
this is not a substitute for tho old
bonfire but a big improvement,” ho
Dean Walker and Don Beelar
drew up the final plans for the fire
and appointed committee chairmen
to handle the work connected with
it. As the rally is to be held down
town, it was thought that it would
be much better to have the fire on
the butte than somewhere on the
campus. This will give the “0” a
wonderful display and should be
seen for miles around. The letter
will be of huge proportions s6 it
will be necessary for the freshmen
to work just a little harder this
year than in previous years to make
it a success.
C. A. Jasmin, president of the
freshman class, has been appointed
general chairman of the committee
and under him there will be Harold
Kelley, chairman of the construction
committee; James Raley, materials
committee; Harry Wood, transpor
tation committee; Tom Wells, vig
ilance committee; Keith Hall, guard
committee; and Dorothy Williams,
of the women’s committee. Further
appointments will be made by the
class president and will be an
nounced later.
Further plans will be announced
at the freshman class meeting this
morning at 9 o’clock in Villard hall
at which time President Hall will
also address tho class.

Large Floor Space and

TJ OME wasn’t built in a day and

000 basketball pavilion, but it will
be completed by the first of Jan
uary, in ample time for the first
basketball gamo with the Univer
sity of Idaho Vandals on January

for a finished building by November

A. Pajunen, contractor, in complet
ing the structure on time.
According to J. V. Spore, Uni
versity inspector, the crew of 60
men are rushing the work to com
pletion as fast as possible. The out
side concrete shell of the building
has been practically completed save
for a small portion near the top.
Workmen will begin today in pour
ing concrete to finish the outside
Interior to Be Finished
The interior of the building is yet
to be finished but a foundation has
already been laid for the floor. Thei
roof of the building which is nearly
completed is perhaps one of the out
standing features. The large cover
ing is a Lamella roof design which
was patented some four or five years
ago in Holland and has been m
use in this country only about two
years. It is a trussloss arch roof
and will be the largest of its kind
on the coast. No large mid-floor
braces support it but is made up of
a number of Lamellae. Ten largo
steel columns give support from the
side of the playing floor. Three
large sky lights should give plenty
of light for afternoon practice.
Playing Floor One of Largest
The playing floor will be one of
the largest on the coast. Approxim
ately 16,500 feet of floor space will
be available for three practice
courts with the main playing floor
designed in the middle.
The seating arrangement of the
new pavilion calls for a capacity
or 7,338 seats and available stand
ing room for 3000 more. When the
demand warrants, it will be pos
sible to install an additional bal
cony which would bring the seating
capacity to nearly 10,000 persons.
"he pavilion' will have two main
entrances and twelve exits. Archi
tects have been careful in planning
tor a speedy clearance of the build
ing. Hall space will be about 14
feet, wide and considerable space
has been given over to Btairways.
Ihe east half of the building has a
basement in which will be housed
shower rooms, dressing rooms, train
ing room, doctor’s room and such.
According to members of the A. 8.
IT. O. building committee the base
ment will be fitted out with all mod
ern equipment.
Coaches and Director Have Booms
I’art of the space of the first
floor has been given over to rooms
for the various athletic coaches and
director of athletics. The balcony
on the west side of the building will
be equipped with opera chairs. It
is planned to use the pavilion for
musical events with the possibilities
of constructing a temporary stage
whenever needed.

Merry Revelers Stage Largest Department Party in
History of University
In a setting that would put any
Greenwich Village orgy to shame,
the art students of the campus and
many others got together last night
for the hottest blowout ever staged
barring none. The revel was staged
in the painting studio which was
fittingly adorned with decorative de
signs, casts and various other means
of artistic decoration. As a means
of variation a line hung with paint
besmeared smocks which looked
more like the back end of a New
York tenement than an artistic de-|
vice was swung the entire length of
the room.
Various casts were displayed,
some with added decoration, some
without, representing the members
of the department.
Along one side wall in mutual
indignation stood two casts of the
Venus de Milo. Beside them was a
sign explaining that they were
“Kerns and Avakian, Hands off
and Arms off.”
