Will Feature
Oregon Fight
At Big Rally
Pajama Parade Will Have
Record Number in
Line of March
Program of Rally
Kept in Secrecy
Former Grid Heroes to Be
In Attendance
THE keynote of the Homecom
ing rally this year will be
the reincarnation of the “Old Ore
gon Fight,” and from the time the
pajamarino parade leaves the cam
pus until the last loyal Oregon stu
dent files out of the armory, after
the rally assembly, enthusiasm and
fight will reign paramount.
The general outline of the rally
program starts with the formation
of a parade of 3000 students at the
Sigma Chi corner in pajama attire.
The parade will march down to Wil
lamette street in torch-light forma
tion, with the yell staff leading in
Oregon veils.
“O” to Be Burned
With the student body at Wil
lamette street, attention will be
focused on Skinner’s butte, where
the flaming “O” will be set afire,
preceeded by a skyrocket display.
The flaming “O” will replace the
old freshman bonfire, and it ie ex
pected that the blazing “O” will be
more symbolistic of Oregon victory
than the heretofore frosh bonfire.
The rally parade then will march
down Willamette street in noisy pro
cession under the light of torches to
the armory. Bill James, rally chair
man, refuses to 4pve out much in
formation on the program at the
rally, but he promises that the pro
gram will instill the thought of vic
tory in every student, even to the
most doubtful grid fan.
Former Warriors to Attend
A number of former Oregon grid
heroes will be on the stage to urge
the varsity on to victory, while the
Oregon band, in the new uniforms,
will be on hand to play. Accord
ing to present plans, the American
Begion drum corps will also be at
the rally.
The rally at the armory will be of
a different nature than the one of
last year. The committee is enthus
iastic over the present plans and pre
dicts that the 1926 rally will be
one of the outstanding pep-assem
blies ever staged at Oregon.
The whole rally program will be
over fairly early in the evening, and
following, there will be an alumni
and senior smoker at the men’s gym.
For former order of the “O” men,
a banquet and attractive program
has been arranged for the same
University Band to
Don Nifty Uniforms
Declares Director
'“We must have a band that the
University will be proud of,” de
clared W. L. Ferris, director of the
organization yesterday. “We have
a wealth of material, and if the
students co-operate and lend their
efforts, there is no reason we can
not have a band unsurpassed in any
other college.”
At present, there is instrumental i
material sufficient for three bands,
according to Mr. Ferris. They will
be ranked according to ability. The
first band will give a student con
cert soon, he added, while the third
band will be used as a training
school for those students who have
had little experience in band work.
The members of the B. O. T. C.
band will wear their regular cadet j
uniforms, but those in the Univer
sity band will have broadcloth uni
forms of special design. “These |
will consist of four pieces,” said
Mr. Ferris, “«blouse, breeches, Sam ^
Brown belt, and cap. The belt will
be of regulation style. The blouse
will be of green and in the same
■general pattern as those worn by
the American Legion drum corps of
Eugene. The cap will be in the
Pershing army style with a green
crown, yellow band, leather visor
and chin strap.”
John Barron Chosen
Glee Club Accompanist
The members of the men’s glee
■club held their first monthly “get
together” supper last evening at
the Anchorage, for the purpose of
discussing the plans of the organiza
John Barron has been chosen as
accompanist for the club, and on the
annual tour will act as piano soloist.

Dr. Ely, Noted
Economist, to

Students Privileged to
Hear Noted Scientist
At Eleven
Dr. Richard T. Ely, noted econ
omist and head of the bureau of
farm economics at Northwestern
University, will arrive in Eugene
early fliis morning from Hood River

fessor in the economics department.
Dr. Ely’s first appearance will be
this morning before Mr. Gilbert’s

106 Commerce building at eleven
o’clock. He will discuss some phases
of American land policy and prob

of residence at Madison, Wisconsin.
Saturday evening Dr. Ely will
meet with graduate students at the
Anchorage at 7:30 and will again
discuss with them the field of re

“Probably no American econom
ist,” says Mr. Gilbert, “has done
more to stimulate and direct research
in the social sciences than Dr. Rich
ard T. Ely, formerly of Wisconsin,
but now connected with a research
bureau on land economics at North
western University. No graduate
student can afford to miss the stim
ulus of personal contact with one of
the best minds in the field of social
Dr. Ely has written several texts
on subjects dealing with economics,
and is considered as an authority on
many subjects.

TOMOBBOW afternoon every
coast conference football team
swings into action with the excep
tion of the Oregon varsity. How
ever, all are not playing conference
games. The biggest game scheduled
for this week-end is between the
Oregon Agricultural college and the
University of California at Berkeley.
Yesterday morning Coach Paul J.
Schissler and 28 grid warriors, with
the cry, “California, here we come,”
boarded the Shasta at Albany for
Berkeley. So high is the enthusiasm
on the Aggie campus that over 250
students and business men are mak
ing the trip south.
O. A. C. Favored
To date the Aggies have made a
very impressive showing. The huge
Orange and Black machine has scor
ed 139 points to its opponents ’ 6.
Coach “Nibs” Price’s Golden Bears
have done nothing outstanding. In
their first game of the season, the
Santa Clara outfit fell before a 13
to 6 attack. The Olympic club* proved
a set up, 32 to 0, but last Saturday
they met defeat at the hands of
the St. Mary’s eleven, 26 to 7.
In Seattle tomorrow the Washing
ton Huskies entertain the Univer
sity of Idaho Vandals. Each have
won a conference game. The Wash
ington State Cougars after a 16 to
7 defeat at the hands of the South
ern California Trojans are ready tQ
play their first home game against
the University of Montana.
Cards Have Tilit
The Southern California Trojans
and Stanford Cardinals are both
playing non-conference teams. The
Occidental college eleven invades
the Los Angeles campus. “Pop”
Warner’s red-shirted Cardinals meet
the crafty University of Nevada
grid machine. Each year this eleven
makes a trip to the eoast and throws
a big scare into the heart of some
football coach.
While the rest of the conference
teams are in action Coaeh John J.
McEwan will be taking advantage
of the rest period and put his men
through a strenuous practice. By
the end of next week each player
will be ready to give the Cardinals

Elect Officers
At the first meeting of the Order
of the “O” held yesterday, Frank
Reinhart, baseball letterman for the
past two seasons, was elected presi
dent for the ensuing year. Fred
West was elected secretary-treasur
er. A new idea was started in the
way of a vice-president. Six vice
presidents were elected, each repre
senting one of the four major and
two minor sports of the campus.
Those elected included Beryl Hod
gen, football; Roy Okerberg, basket
ball; Ed Crowley, track; Bill Baker,
baseball; George Mead, tennis; and
Donald McCook, swimming.
These new-plan vice-presidents will
act as a committee but any business
arising pertaining to any one in
dividual sport will be turned over
to that respective vice-president.
According to President Reinhart this
will give each sport of the campus
equal importance.
Plans have already been formulat
ed for Homecoming. This is one of
the big occasions for the Order of

Authentic Biography
The book which is to be sold is
the work of Dr. Joseph Schafer,
[superintendent of the Wisconsin
Historical society and former pro
fessor of history on the Oregon
campus during the regime of Prinee
Campbell. Dr. Schafer is a histor
ian of note and his personal collec
tion of material concerning some of
Ithe leading men of the United
States is of great value.
Besides the advantage which the
book possesses in being written by
an expert historian it also has a
personal touch which could not be
obtained except through a man
who was personally acquainted with
the late president. Realizing the
true merits of the book and its

The subject for the debate will

to cover the faults and benefits of

It is important not only because it

good substantial arguments to win.

improvement over the old style de
