    Oregon Rated
As Underdogs
May Pull Surprise
Weight About the Same;
W i/ton Takes Place of
Hyland at - Halfback
Sports Editor.
Oregon goes into the Stanford
ftamo tomorrow with an underdog’s
rating, but the Cardinals may re
ceive a surprise. Otacli John J. Me
Ewan hasn’t been spending the last
two weeks for nothing. The Web
foots have one thing in common
with the southern team and that is
weight. “Top” Warner’s eleven
will average about 181 pounds,
while McEwan’s men will weigh
about the same except in the back
field, where the Cardinals have a
slight advantage.
* * *
To date, both teams have tasted
defeat. Stanford has won four, lost
one and tied for a contest, piling up
93 points to its opponents’ 41. Ore
gon, on the other hand, has won
two, lost one and tied one, garner
ing 39 markers to the opposition’s
22. In the recent O. A. C. game
the Cardinals demonstrated their
possession of a powerful offensive.
Stanford made 10 first downs and
gathered 251 yards from passes and
* * *
Last year tricky Dick Hyland
played havoc with the Webfoots
after the Oregonians were leading
at half time. This year finds a
new face in Hyland’s place, Wilton,
155-pounder, with tricky Dick on
the bench. This young gentleman
Wilton had a great day against
the Oregon Beavers, earning 85
yards from scrimmage with 10 plays.
Wilton is a little fellow and was
only discovered this season. Other
halfbacks include Hill and Sims,
173 pounds, Hyland, 155 pounds,
Lud Frentrup, 176-pound sopho
more, and Patchett at the same
The quarterback position seems to
be pretty well taken care of by
“Spud” Lewis, Portland boy and
former Lincoln high school star.
Lewis used good judgment with his
assortment of plays in the recent
Portland tilt.
It is in the fullback’s shoes where
all of Stanford’s backfield weight
lies. Big Bill Hoffman tips the
seales for a mere 185 and what’s
more uses it to a very good advan
tage. The big plunger counted for
71 yards against Coach Schissler’s
This all brings us down to Herbie
Fleishhacker, the 19-year-old son of
the well known San Francisco fi
nancier. All last year this young
giant sat on the bench as a full
back. His freshman year found
him as a guard on the yearling
Cardinal eleven.
Fleishhacker, who stands six feet
four and weighs 211 pounds, re
ceived his long awaited chance
against the U. S. C. Trojans several
weeks ago. With Stanford trailing
7-13 and less than three minutes of
play remaining, ‘‘Pop” Warner sent
the big fellow into the fray. The
Cardinals had penetrated into Tro
jan territory. Herb took the ball
on four straight plays and placed
it on the U. S. C. six-yard line.
Then he dropped back, tossed a
short pass straight into the arms
of a waiting end and the score was
tied. Fleishhacker passes with his
left hand.
One thing that makes this big,
fullback so effective as a line
smasher is his ability to start fast.
In three feet he is going at full
speed, and he hits the line with all
his drive. In a 25-yard race he can
beat Hyland or Wilton, speed boys
who weigh but 155.
• * * *
Although Stanford hasn’t any
Shipkey this year they have two
capable wing performers in the per
sons of Preston and Davidson, ends.
Captain Hal McCreery, the fighting
Scot, will be found at center, where
he has starred all season. TlJls big
Scotchman will give George Stadel
man plenty to worry about tomor
row. Don Robeskv and Seraphim
Post will be found at the guard
positions. Robeskv played a great
game against the Trojans. Sellman
and Freeman will take care of Stan
ford’s tackling posts.

Prophylactic Ham
Served by Samara,

Prophylactic ham with sterilized

honorary for Botany majors. The

of working up appetites by

“petri-dishes,” much scalded, rou

Needless to say, the silver (whic

No mention was made of finger

Graham Stuart
Tells Assembly
About Politics
Democracy Has Need for
Intelligent Opinions,
Says Speaker
Intelligent public opinion is one
of the first obligations that a de
mocracy imposes upon its citizens,
according to the principal speaker
on the assembly program yesterday
morning, Graham Henry Stuart, pro
fessor of Political science at Stan
ford University, who addressed the
student body on “American Citizen
ship and World Politics.”
The old phrase, “Noblesse oblige,”
demanded that everyone of posi
tion had obligations to fulfil, and
it seems that college sftidents, who
have opportunities others have not,
should realize the changes that have
come upon the world and which
have affected the economical, po
litical and social conditions, in the
opinion of the speaker.
The United States has always
kept the policy of George Wash
ington—that of isolation, and when
the country became a great power
almost over night, its citizens did
n ’t realize the responsibilities that
were thrust upon them according to
Dr. Stuart. In the policies of cen
tral government and in inventions
the United States is up-to-date, but
she is loath to change her foreign
relations, since the foreign policy,
is not due to the president alone,
but to Congress also, and it is there
fore difficult for an idea to be put
American Influence Abroad
The speaker said that when he
was in Peru two years ago he no
ticed that the customs officers were
led by an American customs man,
the navy was under the charge of
an American naval officer, the chief
officer in the naval academy was
from the United States, and when
he visited the mines he found an
American colony there.
Other incidents that made the
speaker think of the influence of
the United States as a world power
were the opening of China by Ad
miral Peary, the calling of the Far
Eastern conference by Secretary
Hughes, the playing of a vigorous
part in the last opium conference,
and the holding of the disarmament
conference, which latter Dr. Stuart
called one of the best results of the
Harding administration.
“In the question of the interna
tional cable, for instance, you must
have the co-operation of the world,”
said the speaker. “We on the Pa
cific coast can communicate with
Paris quicker than Louis XIV could
communicate with his palace at Ver
sailles when he wanted to order a
house party.”
Dudley Clark, who gave a short
pep talk prior to the rally, asked the
student body to see the team off on
the train, meet the players when
they return, and “talk, eat, drink,
beat Stanford!”
Oregon Spirit Personified
Five years ago the captain of the
Oregon team was seriously injured
in the first four minutes of the
first game of the season, according
to Clark. In spite of his relatives
and the doctor, ‘Tiny’ Shields in
sisted on playing the rest of the
game and the rest of the games

luncheod at the Campa Shoppe
Tuesday will be the starting
'or the workers on the Campus
“drive to end drives” to be
held next week, according to an an
nouncement by Ronald Robnett,
drive chairman. At this luncheon,
plans will be outlined for the drive,
and talks by student body officials
•will be a part of the program.
Plans for the drive include a per
sonal interview with every student,
both those in living organizations
and the independent groups. Thes
pians, freshmen girls honor society,
has been working on the student
lists, segregating them in the neces
sary divisions for the drive leaders.
Appointments Under Way
Pledge tags are being prepared
by Josephine Ralston, business man
ager of the drive, for the purpose of
marking those who have subscribed.
These will be distributed to the
drive workers at the luncheon Tues
day. Pledge cards are being print
ed and arrangements are being made
to take care of the cash contribu
tions as they come in.
Committee appointments are now
being considered by the solicitor
chairmen, Bob Hynd and Julia "Wil
son. Appointments, both ' those of
the speakers and the individual so
licitors, will be announced as soon
as the directorate is able to find
those best able to handle the work.
Plans Outlined
Plans were outlined to the execu
tive council by the drive chairman
at a meeting of that body hold last
night. The executive council is of
ficially at the head of the drive,
and works through the permanent
Campus Chest committee, which ap
points the drive chairman.
Although the drive doesn’t offi
cially come to a close until Friday
of next week, those in charge ex
pect to have the quota of $3,000
subscribed by Thursday evening.
“A spirit of optimism is noticeable
on the campus,” said Ronald Rob
nettf chairman. “Students are
anxious to have the trouble .and ex
pense of continuous drives stopped,
and are willing to contribute to the
Campus Chest in order to remedy
the evil that has become worse with
each succeeding year.”
Beelar Approves Plan
In regard to the Campus
Chest, lion Beelar, president of
A. S. U. O., issued the follow
ing statement yesterday:
“The purpose of the Campus
Chest drive, is to do in an offi
cial way, and under student
body administration, that which
formerly was done unofficially.
The students will be able to say
where their money shall be in
vested, the same as usual; but
there will be budgets turned in
for approval to the Campus
Chest committee by the various
“No more money is expected
to be obtained in this way, but
the one big concentrated drive,
will eliminate the embarrass
ment of repeated small drives
for money.
“With the cooperation of the
students, there is no reason why
the Campus Chest should not be
a success, and establish an in
stitution which will place the
raising of money on an intelli
gent basis.”

Hendrick’s Tea Party
Breaks Up in Alarm
When Male Rings Bell
A peaceful ton party which ended
in more panic than a three-alarm
fire broke the calm of Hendricks
I hall yesterday afternoon.
It. was five p. m. (.5iris were get
| ting ready for dinner—some were in
1 negligees washing their hair, one
; taking a bath anil scores lolling
j around the upstairs portion of the
building in various degrees of dis
! hnbille.
When the five alarm suddenly
| clanged its raucous tones over the
i hall the ambient atmosphere rang
with screams. Girls tore madly
down the halls and out, of doors. The
one in the bathtub grabbed a bath
robe and followed suit.
Another, nursing a sprained ankle
and reading a poem in which flames
j leapt up and out, seized a pair of
j crutches and tore (if people on
crutches can ‘tear') down tho hall
to the fire escape.
After several nerve-racking min
utes and no fire had been discovered
a search of indignation started.
In the corner was found a cower
ing male. It was he who had acci
| dently rang the fire alarm when he
i thought he was turning on the elec
tricity- to make the tea for the littlo
J party-. It will be a long time before
the Hendricks hall girls forgive Bill
Crawford for that slip.
Dramatic Class
Presents Plays
Tonight At Guild
‘The Young Dane,’ Comedy
of Valley Farm Life,
First of Three
Throe one-act plays, a comedy, a
more serious drama, and a rollick
ing burlesque will be presented by
members of Miss Florence E. Wil
bur 's class in drama interpretation
this evening in Guild hall. They
were written by students in Mrs.
Alice Henson Ernest’s play writing
class last year.
“The Young Dane,” the first of
the plays, is the story of a young
Danish farmer in the Willamette
valley who, after five years of hard
work, has saved enough to send for
his fiancee from the old country.
Carol Agnes Graham, a senior in
English, is the author.
Frank Jackson plays the part of
Hans Hanson, the unsuspicious far
mer; Florence Grimes takes the
role opposite him, that of Christine
Johnson, the girl from the old coun
try who has not seen her lover in
the last five years and expects to
find him “sitting on gold chairs and
wearing silk breeches.”
Marjorie Wheftel is Sarah Han
son, the suspicious over-worked
mother of Hans. The cause of her
worry is Nels Nelson, the handsome
stranger, played by Merle Benedict.
Other characters are Jack Waldrom
as the sheriff, and Margaret French
as a farmer’s wife.
“T’Other Side” is a story of the
Tennessee mountains written by Eu
genia Strickland now in San Fran
cisco. Neither Mrs. Tilley, the old
mountain woman (Harriet Hawkins)
nor her daughter Sal (Frederica
Warren) have ever been but a short
distance from their mountain home.
The daughter wants to see the other
side of the mountain and, when the
story opens, has determined to go
there at last.
Very fine character work has been
done in the play, according to Miss
Wilbur, in interpreting the stolid
mountain folks.

mother Eve’s cave is the setting for

Sports Editor, Tlie Stanford Onily.
27.—(Special)—After suitably dis
posing of the O. A. 0. grid team,
Coach Bop Warner and his Car
dinals are making complete prepara
tions for the invasion of the Oregon
Webfopters this Saturday. The
Oregonians have a scoreless tie with
Idaho to their credit, and have kept
California down to a 1(1-0 score;
neither feat promises an easy after
noon for the Redshirts.
A fast, tricky attack has kept
Stanford in the conference race in
spite of bad breaks and bad fum
bles. And when this attack has been
stopped, the Stanford spirit has
made itself known, as the U. S. C,
Trojans can well testify. The regu
lar Cardinal baekfield, not at all
green material, starting off the sea
son in rather poor shape, lias been
forced to show more than a bit of
reputation to keep first string posi
tions, and are rounding into form.
Fleislihackcr Speedy
The most sensational, but not the
most important, addition to the
Stanford ball-carriers is Herbie
Fleislihackcr, the “poor little rich
boy,” who attained the highest vic
tory possible in any football play
er’s life by scoring the tying touch
down- with 10 seconds to play.
Fleishhacker’s performance against
the Trojans was one that promises
j more for next year than for the re
mainder of the 1927 season.
wmon displaces nyiana
Taking the place of “Tricky
Dick” Hyland, who has thus far
proved a disappointment to Stan
ford fans, is Frank Wilton, a now
candidate for “outstanding player.”
After proving decisively that lie
can run and pass and kick as well
as anybody, ho has taken and held
tho position of the speediest and
most, consistent player on the team.
Fumbling, Wilton’s main fault in
oafly games, has been stopped, and
the Redshirt flash will bo at top
form against tho Webfooters.
Hill Fast Back
Don Hill, another fast back, has
been reeling off yards and yards on
reverses and lateral pass plays, lie
is heavier than Wilton, hits harder,
and backs up the line better. Mike
Murphy, a red-headed piece of dyna
mite, is Pop’s best bet for open
field running.
Coming into his own after a bad
start, Biff Hoffman is ready to
challenge any fullback on the coast
for all honors! When it is last down
and a yard is needed, Biff handles
tho ball. When it is first down
and five could help, Biff again
crashes through. If it is a five or
a forty-yard pass, it is Hoffman to
another Redshirt. On kicks Hoff
man gets the ball away faster and
farther, and more accurately than
any other man in tho back field.
McCreery Looking Good
Captain Hal McCreery, the “Bad
Pass McCreery” of two years back,
is tho first center of all coast cali
bre since the days of Dud DeGroot.
Around him are Seraphim Post and
Don Robesky, two guards who began
playing football three years ago, aud
good football last week. At tackles
are Chris Freeman and Roland
“Tiny” Sellman, two big brutal
blonds. These two have been play
ing together for a good long time,
and provide tho best defense work
in the line.

Coolidge ‘Worst Office
Holder,’ Says Mitchell
(By United Press)
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 27.—
William C. Mitchell, who was de
posed from his office in the army
because ho “talked out of turn”
about the condition of army avia
tion, has broken loose with another
verbal fusillade, this time against
the president.
“ President Coolidge is the worst
public official in office,” Mitchell
said in a speech today. “He has
made an industry of office holding
and is trying to rule the country—
not govern it.”
Mitchell accused the president of
“attempting fo establish a bureau
cracy in Washington.”
