r rosh 1 o Meet
In First Game
Today At 2:30
Columbia Squad Said to
B e Handicapped
By Injuries
• Both Teams to Play
Deceptive Football
1 Yearlings Will Appear in
New Suits '
THIS freshman football team is
to play its first game of the
season this afternoon at 2:30 when
it meets Columbia University of
Portland'in the annual tilt bettween
these two teams. Columbia has been
hard hit by injuries lately, but
Coach Harrington is bringing down
a formidable array of football tal
ent. The frosh will present a strong
lineup ^for the game and all con
cerned predict a fairly close game
with the yearlings holding a slight
advantage. The Cliffdwellers have
never succeeded in downing the
freshmen but played a tie game sev
eral years ago. This contest has
come tto be one of the big games
on the freshman schedule.
Head Coach Reinhart predicts a
good game and announces that win
or lose the frosh can be counted up
on to put up a good fight. The
team is all -"hopped up” for the
game as this is the firslt chance the
men have of fighting for Oregon.
Most of the injuries suffered by the
players during the past week have
responded to treatment and the
wearers of the green lids will pu)t
a well balanced team on the field.
Reinhart’s chief concern is over
Bobby Robinson, star halfback, who
has an infected foot. It remains to
be seen whether or not ‘ he will be
able to start tthe game. His loss
will be greatly felt if he is unable
to start as he is a real triple threat
man. In scrimmage against the
varsity and also in pradtice he has
been averaging better than forty
five yards on his punts and he is
one of the best open field runners
on the team. He also passes ac
curately. In case he does not start
Reynold MacDonald, former Salem
high star will start in his place.
Columbia Has Reserves
Coach Harrington is reported to
have lost his stellar performer in
Garrity. The last named person
holds down a backfield berth and
does the kicking and most of the
passing. However true this report
may be Ithere are several capable
men ready to step in and take Gar
rity’s place if he is unable to play.
It seems that most of the Columbia
players are suffering from minor
injuries but these will not amount
Ito much.
Trick Game Expected
The game should prove a very in
teresting one from the spectators’
point of view as the systems used
by both tend toward deceptive foot
ball. The freshmen will use Ithe new
system introduced this fall by the
varsity while Columbia will use
the Notre Dame style of play. A,
battle of wits should result and
passing will probably play an im
portant parit in the game. Much de
pends on the condition of the field
for if it is wet the frosh will be
favored due to the ability of Hat
ton, Ricks, and Johnson, to plunge
(through the line. The teams will be
nearly evenly matched in weight
with Columbia having the edge in
experience as they have already
played Albany college and defeated
them, 33-0.
All Frosh to Play
The frosh will appear in new uni- ;
forms issued last night and will be '
numbered so it will be easy to find \
the individual players. The train
ers have labored long and hard to ,

Boom! Boom! Boom!
Campus Can Attend
TJAEK ye! gentle readers. If
-■- ■■■you are startled out of an
indulgent sleep at 8:30 Monday
morning by three shots be re
assured that it means neither
that the British are appraoehing
by land nor by sea nor that an
other armistice has been signed.
No, the three shots will merely
signify that the weather is beau
tiful and that every one who
wishes to may attend he inaug
uration of Dr. Arnold Bennett
Hall which will be held on Hay
ward field.
Because it will not be possible
for everyone to attend the cere
mony if held in the Woman’s
building, the Semi-Centennial
committee is making every effort
to accommodate those who have
not received admission tickfets.
Accordingly, if the weather per
mits, the shooting of three bombs
will signify that the committee
has succeeded in compromising
Jupe Plfivius and everyone is
welcome. However, if Jupe re
fuses to listen to reason the in
auguration will take place inside
and in such a case only those
who have admission tickets will
be admitted since the largest
auditorium available on the cam
pus will accommodate not over
1200 people in addition to fac
ulty and official delegates.
With the exception of exer
cises on Inaugural day, Monday,
all symposia and memorial exer
cises throughout the week are
open to the general public and
citizens of Eugene and the state
at large are urged to take advan
tage of the opportunity to meet
and hear some of the most dis
tinguished scholars and TTniver
sity presidents in the country.
With the exception of inaugural
exercises on Monday, no tickets
of admission will be required.

of George Rebec, dean of thi
graduate school, was awarded firsl
place in the University of Oregor
ode contest with her ode, “On th^
Eiftieth Anniversary of the Found
ing of the University of Oregon,’1
which will be a feature of the Semi
Centennial pledge day assembly
Thursday morning, October 21.
The selection was made, after an
extended consideration, from a large
number of manuscripts submitted
upon diverse themes relating to the
present and past life of the Uni
versity and varying in length from
54 lines to ten pages. The manu
scripts came in from various sec
tions of the state, the authors being
graduates or members of the pres
ent University group. The contest
opened last June and closed Septem
ber 11. The judges were Alice Hen
son Ernst, chairman, of the English
department, W. F. G. Thacher, and
Ralph D. Casey, professors in the
school of journalism.
Mrs. Rebec, Vassar Teacher
Mrs. Rebec, an A. M. graduate of
the University of Michigan, held a
Pilgrim Fellowship in English there.
Later she taught English at Vassar.
Her verse has appeared in several
college magazines, Smart Set and
Atlantic Monthly. Through her long
residence in Eugene and the state
and through an intimate association
with the life of the University, she
was very able to express the spirit
of Oregon’s half-century celebration.
Mrs. Rebec’s ode of some 145
lines has profound concentration,
graceful simplicity, appropriately
suggestive imagery, and philosophic
“He still has learned, uncoweringly,
to wait,
To thrill with ancient pleasure in a
sunset sky,
To hush with wonder when the wild
geese fly,
To suck up beauty as a wild rose

“Her ode has a pleasing variety
of pattern and rhythm, flexible man
ipulation of material and unity of
time,” comments Mrs. Ernst.

references, it is given larger sig

Ale! Ginger? Don’t

TN the dark of the moon, or at

the law school were not shining
with their usual brilliancy, some
loathesome culprit did malicious

or otherwise spirit away the
black letter “H” from the cog

the law school.

The powers that be were im

Dr. Ely Tells Faculty
Men They Can Help
Solve Problems
Haphazard and unscientific settle
ment of rural lands, development
of city properties, and construction
and utilization of public utilities,
result in the loss of many thousands
of dollars and bring in their wake
many human tragedies, said Dr.
Richard T. Ely, noted economist,
who spoke last night at the faculty
Social Science club meeting in the
Anchorage, on how research can aid
in the solution of these problems.
“No bargain a person makes is so
important as the purchase of land,”
said the speaker, who is director
of the national ifistitute of land
economics and public utilities. “If
the farmer makes an unwise pur->
chase, his land is likely to be a)
millstone around his neck for a life- j
time. The unwise purchase of city;
property may be equally harmful.”

“The Oriental is a person who
keeps his fancies largely to him
self,” declared N. B. Zane of the
department of art and architecture.
“He is very reticent and dreamy.
Consequently, things he makes are
to a large degree the expression of
his dreams.
“It is extremely hard for the
American to avoid bringing his
American self to the appreciation
of Oriental product. It is much like
a Persian home without taking off
one’s shoes. In approaching Chinese
things then, if they are dreamy, as
most of them are, the American
finds himself on unfamiliar ground
and has very little patience with
them. He is used to things in rela
tion to his conception of reality,
those things tangible to him such as
wealth, land, and property. He haB |
grown up with a seneo of wanting to j
recognize and fool at home with j
the things that are pictured. If they i
are not pictured the way he is used
to, he is inclined to be intolerant.
He finds himself on relatively
strange ground and unless he, is a
bit poetic by nature, lie isn’t likely
to revel in the product of the Chi
nese. He is willing to concede the
