i L. H. Gregory Wins Duck in Name Contest Portland Sports Editor Suggests “Webfoots”; Awarded Bird Vikings, Dragons Pass In Review; Given Ax Monickers Swamp Judges In Attempt to Name Oregon’s Teams By HAKOLD MANGUM A L. H. Gregory, sports editor of the Oregonian, wins the prize offered for the beat monicker submitted. He <did not hold high hopes of winning when he made his suggestion, but after long and careful deliberation by an august committee, lo, Greg’s name led all the rest. Henceforth and forever more, ath letic teams representing the Univer sity of Oregon will be known as Web foots. There it is. Pert, long-whisk ered with tradition, and a neat mouth ful. Buckeyes, Hawkeyes, Hoosiers, and other names of eastern state uni versities suffer by contrast with Ore jgon’s new adoption. Duck Substitutes for Turkey Inasmuch as the winning sobriquet was not entirely original, the commit tee has decided to award Gregory a - duck instead of the advertised turkey, with the hope that this duck will be. the last duck of a long line of ducks. Some folks may say that the prize winning name is not as new as it might be, and that the contest has proved ineffectual. The committee considers it an overwhelming success and is tickled to death with the re sponse with which it has been greeted. Liberally hundreds of suggestions have been received from all over the coast, including everything from Es kimo to Amazon. Several news papers have burgeoned out in their editorial columns, and comment has been both favorable and vituperative. Good Old Webfoots The feature has been the loyalty with which Oregon supporters every where have rallied to the support of the term Webfooter. Where one week they were cussing the rain, they are now hailing it as a blood brother. A great surge of pride in the, state of muddy gridirons and sullen skies has arisen. It suits us fine.

Book by Douglass Receives Favorable Comment in Review “Douglass isn’t particularly ten ^ der, but he strikes me as being re freshingly true.” So Principal Phil ip Manzer distorts the familiar phrase in his review of “Modern " Methods in High School Teaching,” a book which has recently been writ ten and published by Harl E. Doug lass, professor in the Oregon school of education and director of the Uni versity high school. The remarks appear in the Nov ember issue of the “Educational Re view” in a section called “Profes sionals Review Professional Books,” in which teachers tell what they think of books on teaching which are fresh from the press. “As usual,” says the review, “Douglass hits the high points in his introduction. ‘Thinking, not merely reciting, is the high school’s business; giving out and hearing les sons won’t suffice now;’ ‘There is a proper procedure proved by experi ment and as essential as the estab lished methods of medicine.’” ^ Manzen writes, “The book starts right -with a clear expostion of the purpose of high school teaching and with a definite plan of campaign. You should hear him describe the discarding of the old style of teach ers preparing lessons as so much text to cover. Listen to his urge for adopting the new procedure using daily plans or aims. “I like the book because its gen eral principles are not conjectures, and because they are illustrated by detailed specimens of procedure. How to plan a high school lesson is accompanied by actual lesson plans.” The book has attracted consider able attention among educators and other favorable reviews of it ap pear in the Hawaiian Educational Review and the High School Quar ^ terly. The book is one of the “Riv erside Educational Series,” of which Elwood Cubberley is editor. Bluff Called; Here’s More About Big Fuss Typewriters and rocks, law books and gym suits, with a few adding machines thrown in, will have a chance to uphold their claims to athletic superiority. How? Well, here’s the latest. The lawyers are a big blow, or so say the journalists. Geologists claim that the physical ed ma jors are all wet and all four agree that the business ad bunch don’t figure at all. Which is right remains to be seen. A basketball tournapient for all majors in those depart ments will be run off soon. For the last three years the physical educationalists have beaten down all oppo|jtion and have intentions of doing the same again. November 29 rep resentatives of all and sundry schools and departments of the University will meet and ar range a schedule. Four o’clock at the men’s gymnasium. Inter ested groups are invited to join the confusion. Liiristmas oaii In Portland Is Plan of League Affair Is Annual Event; Multnomah Hotel to Be Scene of Gaiety The annual Christmas College Ball, sponsored by the Women’s League, will be given at the Mult nomah hotel in Portland, December 27, Monday evening.

FineArtsClub Forms; Plans Museum Aid Mrs. Gerlinger Discloses Scheme for Raising More Funds Dr» Suzzalo Scheduled For December Lecture Spring May See Start Of Construction AT’ESTERDAY at a meeting of -*• University alumnae, and other women of Eugene interested in the fine arts, a Fine Arts club was or ganized for the purpose of aiding in the campaign for the Fine Arts museum to be constructed on the campus as a memorial to the late president, Prince L. Campbell, and for the further purpose of develop ing the idea of beauty as a neces sity in the lives of people. Important plans for the raising of funds for the museum were disclos ed by Mrs. George T, Gerlinger, who said that Howard Christy, noted artist, now in Portland, has become greatly interested in the art mem orial and he and Mrs. Christy have expressed themselves as desiring “to do something big for the museum,” and have proposed an art exhibit to be given for the benefit of the building. Christys Sponsor Exhibit The exhibit, which will consist of some of the best portraits painted by Mr. Christy, will be held in Port land sometime next spring when he returns to Oregon. A*similar exhibit was held in New York, Mr. Christy said, and thousands of people visit ed it, so it is expected that the Portland exhibit will be highly suc cessful. “Mr. Christy has a gracious, buoy ant, sunny spirit and both he and his wife are charming people,” said Mrs. Gerlinger. Another important part of the campaign will be the aid which Dr. Henry Suzzalo, ex-president of the University of Washington, offers. He will deliver a lecture December 28, in Portland for the benefit of the Fine Arts memorial. Dr. Suzzalo was a great admirer of President Campbell and during the Semi-Centennial asked if there was something which he could do for the furthering of this plan, which was President Campbell’s dearest dream. The aid which is coming from all sources, from friends and alumni of the University, from clubs and or ganizations, is indicative of the high esteem in which President Campbell was held, said Mrs. Ger linger. Spirit Is Commended During Semi-Centennial celebra tion, the prominent educators pres ent on the campds were particularly impressed with the Fine Arts spirit on the campus. President C. C. Little, of the Uni versity of Michigan, told Dr. Hall that he “coveted” the architecture and fine arts departments of the University of Oregon. President Campbell recognized the idea of art as one of the most valu able contributions which the Uni versity could make to the state of Oregon, and he is largely responsible for the high place the Oregon fine art department now has, said Vir ginia Judy Esterly, dean of women. She spoke of the time when Pres ident Campbell said: “There are times in a man’s life, when beauty is the most useful thing in the world.” The club just organized intends to raise two thousand dollars within the next two years. Mrs. David Graham was elected president; Mrs. Carl Washburne, vice-president; and Dorothy Collier, secretary-treasurer. Over fifty Eugene women were present at the meeting and they con stitute the charter members of the organization. The idea of such a club was begun by Mrs. Gerlinger, and was enthusiastically adopted by the women. Teas, furniture and tapestry ex hibits and other benefits will also be given, and it is expected that a student committee will be appointed | to solicit student subscriptions. May Build Next Spring The club will probably develop into a state wide institution and gradually work into the national group. The annual dues to it will j be used to buy from time to time (Continued on page two) Frog, on Rampage, Disrupts Health Staff A FROG was a notable guest at the infirmary over the week-end. Dr. F. N. Miller took him to the infirmary where he spent Sunday and was treated on a water diet. Monday his con dition was worse and he was transported to the dispensary to be examined for infection. Fright seized Mr. Frog while on the operating table waiting for the blood test, and he bound ed off the table into the great outdoors. The entire health stafiE rushed to the rescue, Dr. Os borne and Dr. Miller, armed with brooms and dustpans, figuring prominently. The fugitive was finally captured with the aid of a pan and the disrupted staff re sumed its work. Mr. Frog’s con dition is being eagerly watched by all his friends. President Hall To Meet Oregon Alumni on Tour Group of University Men Will Make up Party; To Start Nov. 27 Starting Saturday after Thanks giving Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, ac companied by Harold Young, presi dent of the Oregon Alumni associa tion, Dean Alfred Powers, of the Extension division, and Dick Smith, alumnus and former coach, will make a tour through the state stop ping at all the larger towns to speak at meetings of Oregon alumni and other organization gatherings. Dr. Hall will speak before the Chamber of Commerce, at the high schools and occasionally at special evening programs. Special alumni meetings have been planned for Dr. Hall’s visit. ' Dr. Dan E. Clark of the Univer sity extension division is handling the scheduling of the meetings and Dean Powers is in general charge of the trip. The first talk will be given at La Grande, Monday, November 29. The party will be in Baker on Tuesday; Pendleton, Wednesday; The Dalles, Thursday; Hood River, Friday; Oregon City on Saturday.

This trip is similar to that taken by Harold Young and Coach John J. McEwan, last spring, soon after Coach McEwan’s arrival, when they traveled through the state and the new coach spoke to different alumni gatherings. Frosh Law Breakers Will Appear Before Student Court Today Freshman violators of Oregon tra ditions and laws will be brought to justice this afternoon when they appear-»befoie the student court? in the first regular session- to be held at the Administration building in room 111 at 4 o’clock. Lowell Bakep, vice-president of the A. S. IT. O., is chairman of the group. The other members are Tom Graham, senior man on the student council, and Frank Reinhart, president of the Order of the “O”. Only those men who have been re ported by the official vigilance com mittee are included in the list of 11 offenders. Each one will be called upon individually and will be per mitted to defend himself. The court, after hearing the evidence on both sides, will decide the penalties. Although the library steps pro cess is to be the chief scene of pun ishment, other corrective measures may in some cases be U3ed. The fol lowing freshmen are requested to report to the court today, and if they fail to go will be subjected to the paddles of the “O” men: Dar obl Belshe, Robert Hosford, James Wiley, Neil Dickenson, Henry Bris tol, Henry Ball, Kirby Kittoe, Wal ter Browne, Lee Hall, Lawrence Morgan, and Fred Eismann.

IF ootballTeam Closes Season In Sixth Place Letters Earned by Twenty three Players; Seven Regulars Lost Next Season Appears Bright for Gridsters Men From Yearling Squad Strengthen Hopes OREGON’S varsity football team has disbanded for the 1926 sea son, having completed its schedule by losing to O. A. C. 16-0 at Cor vallis last Saturday. This game marked the close of an unusual sea son. The Webfoots won but one game, tKat from California^ but were not badly beaten In any con test, and through a series of coin cidents led or were even at half time in three of the four contests dropped. Another remarkable phase of the season was the large number of men to earn letters. Captain McEwan never hesitated to send in replace ment, with the result that 23 men, the largest number in the history of the University of Oregon, earned sweaters. Seven of these men pl&y ed their last game Saturday, but 16 will be on hand next fall, and to gether with this year’s crack fresh man outfit should assure a candidate for conference honors next fall. Oregon ended up in sixth place this fall. 8weater Awards Won The letter winners are Ted Pope, Ted Slauson, Sherman Smith, and Frank Riggs, ends; John Warren, Captain A1 Sinclair, Hompr Dixon, and Bob Keeney, tackles; Bert Kerns, Beryl Hodgen, Harold Man gum, and Hal Harden, guards; Nick Carter, and Carl Johnson, centers; Ira Woodie, George Mimnaugh, and Merrill Hagan, quarterbacks; Otto Vitus, Victor Wetzel, George Bur nell, and Whippet Ord, halfbacks; Lynn Jones, and Cotter Gould, full backs. Pope, Slauson, , Riggs, Warren, Keeney, Mangum, Harden, Woodie, Hagan, Burnell, Ord, and Gould are earning their first award; Hodgen, Dixon, Carter, and Wetzel are get ting their second sweaters; and Smith, Sinclair, Johnson, Kerns, Mimnaugh, Vitus, and Jones are signing for three stripes. Although it has never been the policy of this institution to win championships twelve months in ad vance, it is anticipated that Ore gon will finish better than sixth in 1927. • But three regulars are lost from this fall’s machine, and their places will be more than filled by the crop of yearlings coming up. O. A. C. Loses Many O. A. C. loses practically her en tire team, with only Robbins, Maple, Luby, Liebe, and Eilers remaining of the first-liners. Jim Dixon, Hippo Dickerson, Slim Balcom, Glenn Olmstead, Dallas Ward, Clare Bad ley, Ewell Grider, Web Edwards, Kon Denman, Everett Jarvis, Wes ley Schulmerich, Kneut Wernmark, and Harvey Hale have played their last coast conference game, and fill ing their places will cause Paul J. Schissler mqny nights without sleep before another Oregon-O. A. C. foot ball game rolls around. Features of last Saturday’s battle were few. However, it was as hard fought and desperately contested as an Oregon-O. A. C. football game ever was, and the intense partisan ship of the rival rooting sections was as evident as ever. Both teams were out to win, and did everything pos sible to achieve that aim. The Ag gies won, as all the Aggies knew they would. Oregon lost, but it was not through lack of support or confidence. An Oregon team never fought more gamely or heroically against a pow erful foe. Jones Hits Hard As since disclosed, the blocked punts were not entirely accidental, and intercepted passes are made in the best regulated crap games. Jim Dixon had been bellowing in like a wild bull in the first half, but bel lowing wide. Coach Schissler fig ured one out between halves that got the Aggies through the melee on top. Dixon, instead of charging out ward, plunged to the insii'e, drawing the Oregon backs in, and giving Dal S las Ward, his end, a clean shot at Wetzel’s right foot.

Novelty Choir From Russia Comes Nov. 30 “Human Orchestra” With Conductor Kilbalchich Opens Concerts Program Includes Classic, Folk Songs Pifcturesque Costumes Worn by Members A “HUMAN orchestra,” the Rus -^*-sian Symphonic Choir of which Basile Kibalchich is conductor, will appear in concert at the Methodist church Tuesday evening, November 30, ,as the first event in the A. S. U. O. music series. The Russian Choir is regarded by music critics as a unique organiza tion in the highest quality of voices, which compose its membership. Mr. Kibalchich has taken the symphony orchestra as his model and has given each voice of his choir the same value as each instrument in the modern orchestra. It is for this rea son that it has been called a “hum an orchestra under the able leader ship of a master musiciggi.” Many Solo Numbers included Most of the singers of the organ ization are of solo caliber, for par ticular attention is given by the leader to the timber, range, quality, and solo abilities of each member. Solo numbers with choir accompani ment are generously included in the program. Program Spans Wide Variety The programs of the choir, as ar ranged by Mr. Kibalchich, are mod els from the standpoint of musical arrangement, variety and entertain ment. The repertory is extensive and each program spans a wide var iety of music from the rich choral music of the church, through the classic and romantic periods to folk songs of Russia and related Slavic nations. Mr. Kibalchich has also invaded the repertory domain of the chamber orchestras, and the piano and has re-arranged many standard classics for choral singing. A feature of the appeal of this unique organization is the external appearance, since the members wear a picturesque • Russian costume.
