Beavers Are Still Aggies To State Executive Hopes of Conference Victory Grow Dim; Husky Game Is Noxt By JOE PIGNEY Once upon a time, in 1862 to be exact, a far seeing national govern ment authorized the establishment of an institution in the state of Oregon for the purpose of promoting the interests of agriculture; Eight years later the state, realizing the importance of the school, accepted it officially as the agricultural col lege of Oregon. For nearly three-quarters of a cen tury the school has flourished under this title. It has become one of the leading agricultural experimental stations in the country, and is the source to which many farmers seek solution for their problems. Now this institution hopes to cast aside the name of the industry that founded it. True, agricultural is not the limit of the curriculum, but it is the basis for which the college owes its existence. Although the Corvallis institution has been advertising itself as the Oregon State College, the governor of the state has indicated that he *will oppose the retention of that title over the original name of Ore gon Agricultural College. * » * After the California-Oregon game in Portland, L. H. Gregory, sports editor of the Morning Oregonian, declared that the Webfooters were woefully weak in fundamentals. He again demonstrates the proof of this by pointing out several faults in the Oregon football machine which should have been eliminated early in the season, but were brought to light in the Aggie contest. He sug gests, however, that the great su periority of the Beavers might have been the cause of such prominence to "the Oregon weaknesses. With the extraordinary success of the Oregon Homecoming, there are suggestions of holding the “big game” in Portland. As football is becoming a highly commercialized sport, holding the battle in. the north would have great financial advantages. There is, however, a remnant of sentiment remaining 'on the campus. To take the annual game between the rivals of a long standing tradition away from the campus would be placing the athlet ics of the University on a monetary basis rather than a basis of student interest. With only one more game remain ing on the Webfoot schedule, the possibility of winning a conference game is more remote than ever. Al though the Washington Huskies were defeated by Stanford, they are still a championship contender. This year Bagshaw will take no chances with the Oregon “jinx.” Two years ago the Web-footers almost fought the Huskies out of the Pacific coast title—at that, time the Washington team declared that it would never again consider the Oregon game as a “set up.” That the people of Seattle have great regard for the Oregon spirit is proved by the heavy advance sale for the Thanks giving day tilt, which is in the proximity of 25,000. The last game of the season to be put on the gridgraph will be the California-Stanford tilt next Satur day. This is the big traditional fray of the South, and the result will have actual bearing on the coast championship. A quarter by quarter summary of the Idaho-O. A. C. game in Portland will also be given at the gridgraph, according to Ed Crowley, who is in charge for the Order of the “O.” Mrs. Bevitt to Conduct Last Piano Class Today Mrs. Zay Bevitt will hold the last of her harmony diagram classes in the school of music today at 1 and 7 p. m., previous to leaving for Seattle, where she will aid in estab lishing her piano method in the public schools. Mrs. Bevitt’s classes have been well attended both by University students and residents of Eugene. The course has been followed through her text published by Sher man and Clay of San Francieso. During the two weeks’ work, Mrs. Bevitt has given a remarkable foundation to people who have had no previous knowledge of piano playing. She has also shown many advanced students how to diagram pieces as an aid to memorization., Jury Acquits Le > Carrier so Bn s iu l In May Invite ( o _ t* emier or re >own today, al of inder court lition. rs re (By United Press BUCHAREST, Nov. 1 Bratianu may seek a b conciliation with forn Prince Carol, it was beli after the surprising a Michael Manoilescu,' for secretary of finance, l martial that tried him f The verdict was rega fleeting army sentiment and show ing that it is not subservient to the government.

Grace Gardner And Joy Ingalls Play in ‘Swan’ Arthur Anderson Carries Male Lead in Guild Hall Production “The Swan” will be presented at the Guild Theatre, November 17 and 18, by the class in technique of act mg under tne di rection of Miss Florence E. Wil bur. The play will begin prompt ly each evening at 8 o ’clock instead of the former time of 8:30. Re served seats for the play may be obtained at Guild hall between 3 and 4 o'clock or may Art Anderson be secured by telephoning 142 “The Swan” gives promise of be ing one of the most striking dramas which has ever been produced by the Guild Theatre group. It is a pe culiarly difficult play to present, be cause of the accumulative details which form the background for the main plot. It is tire story of a prin cess, lovely and gracious, who finds Jier brothers’ tutor .much more con genial than the Crown Prince, to Whom she is betrothed. Only the mastery of Franz Molnar could have turned out anything more than an bp-to-date fairy tale. As it moves under the direction of his careful diction, the subtleties which under lie the presentation of each charac ter come to life and sparkle with the pungency of his wit. These are not stodgy characters from Grimm’s but are outraged royalty in person. Prineess Beatrice, . played by Grace Gardner, is not only a royal match-making mother, but also a clever woman. In fact, as one of the feharaeters of the play suggests, she is the cleverest woman in Eur ope. This title, however, she dis claims with the single line; “N-o, not the cleverest woman in Europe. . . . only in this room, for in the next is a woman much cleverer than I. . . . my daughter.” Princess Alexandra, presented by Joy Ingalls, is clever by reason of the very innocence which differenti ates her from the other women of the court. She does not understand her own emotions and is a little afraid of them, thus giving the im pression of coldness to the onlooker. Only Father Hyacinth, played by Cecil Matson, understands her, and understands also the tutor, Hans Agi. Arthur Anderson portrays the part of Agi who is astronomer, scholar, tutor and lover. Glenn Potts portrays the Crown Prince Albert. He is a bored, blase, lazy groumet, with an eye for wo men and a taste for good food. It is only for Alexandra and his mother, Maria Dominia, that he shows any special interest. Other members of the cast are: Arsen .: Thelma Parks George .Luella Andre Princess Maria Dominia . . Eunice Payne Symphorosa . Ruth Street Count Leutzen . Milton George Colonel Wunderlich . Lynn Black Caesar '. Elmer Grimm Alford . John Gray Countess Sibensteyn Mary Campbell Chambermaid . Vera Ratcliffe Abbott Lawrence, of the architec ture department, is in charge of the settings for the production. Women’s Honorary Sponsors Bridge Tea The active and alumnae chapters of the Mu Phi Epsilon, women’s music honorary, will sponsor a bridge tea for the benefit of the scholarship fund Saturday after noon from 3 to 5 at the Chamber of Commerce. Artistry And Skill Shown By Friedman Polish Artist Comes on First of Student Concert Series Four Chopin Etudes Captivate Audience Own Composition Shows Brilliance By N. M. G. Technical skill was so skilfully subordinated to moods and phras ing that the audience which last evening heard Ignaz Friedman, Polish pianist, was scarcely con scious of the underlying sXIll of the keyboard which he displayed. The opening Beethoven Sonata was unusual in its distinct phrasing and the carrying out of the melody pattern in both the right and left hand passages. The gradual varia tion in tempo and dynamics from the quiet mood of the second pass age was the effect of a master artist. In the variations of the Brahms number, Friedman made not only a change in melodic treatment of the theme but he made each variation portray a distinct mood varying from the extreme anguish to the rol licking rhythm of the dance. The Fugue part of the number by its skilful melodic progression and crescendos created expectancy in the listeners. Gives Encores The encore to the first two num bers was Friedman’s own composi tion, “Viennese Waltz,” which is written in the typical Strauss style. In the Chopin group Friedman proved himself worthy of the praise_ of the leading musical critics of America,. Ip Belle euse he achieved' a quiet effect in spite of the quick finger work involved and without the exaggerated slowness affected by amateurs. Friedman achieved a unique result in the C Sharp Minor Waltz by playing the first move ment in Viennese Waltz rhythm, thereby adding to the subtlety of the hidden melancholy. The Polo naise was played the bravura style with dramatic passages in the bass and contained a good illustration of Friedman’s “velvety pianissimo” in the finale. By far the most popular numbers of the evening were the Four Chopin Studies, which included “The Butterfly Etude,” the famous “Etude in Thirds,” “The Black Key Etude,” and the “Etude in C Major.” Unique emphasis, amazing velocity and the scintillating effect of the rapid right hand passages made them worthy of the applause he received. Many Moods In Debussy’s free style Friedman showed himself capable of rapid changes in mood and this samg ver satility was shown in his treatment of the imaginative old style of Wagner. Friedman’s “Second Viennese Dance” had the typical swing of the European Concert Waltz, which was enhanced by the velocity of its tuns. The Liszt^transeription of Schu bert’s “Hark, Hark the Lark” was transformed into the simplicity of the original song by a careful sub ordination of the intricate musical ornamentation. In this Friedman proved his artistry. The brilliance and alluring rhythm of the “Voices of Spring” called forth applause to which Friedman responded generously with two encores. Messiah Will Be Given By Oratorio Society Handel’s “Messiah” will be pre sented by the Eugene Oratorio so ciety Thursday, December 1. Ac cording to John Stark Evans, di rector, the last few rehearsals have been very satisfactory and only three more will be required before public presentation. Members of the music faculty, Eugene Carr, John B. Siefert, and Mrs. Prudence Clark, will carry the solo parts. Madame McGrew will sing the famous ,soprano air, “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth.” This solo will be followed by the triple chorus, “Worthy Is the Lamb,” which also includes the “Blessing and Honor” and the fugue “Amen.” The Eugene Oratorio society is community ■ enterprise, which in cludes both students of the Univer sity and residents of Eugene. In January the organization will resume regular rehearsals on the “Elijah,” to be given in the early spring. V. S. Ignores Charges That Mexico Paid for Revolt in Nicaragua (By United Press) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 15.— dministration ^officials indicated to day there would be no change in the present friendly American policy toward Mexico as a result of the al leged documentary expose that the Calles government subsidized the recent ' Nicaraguan revolution, pub lished in copyright articles by the Washington Herald. The state department continued to ignore the incident on the ground that it had no information what ever regarding the authenticity of the alleged documents. Debate Tryouts Under New Plan To Be Held Soon Smoking To Be Discussed By Aspirants for Regular Team With the debate plans well out lined for the year and one team al ready in preparation for the Cam bridge meet on December 5, Debate Coach Horner announces that the first regular varsity tryouts will be held on Thursday, November 17, in Villard hall on the question, “Re solved, that smoking should be pro hibited on the campus.” Beginning at 3:30 p. m. the men will tryout foj the first half of the day. At 7:30; ^he women will take the floor on the-isame question. Each debater will be,-given five minutes to the handle* &e problem in any way desired. Sowever, be it re membered that new “squad sys tem” in use thi»year does not se lect a standing team and that a de feat in'this first attempt does not mean a final one. Nevertheless, it is well to make the best possible presentation in the first attempt. Coach Horner urges that those turning out make it a point to be at Villard a few minutes before the scheduled time so that names can be presented and arranged. This will eliminate possible confusion during the discussions. “I’d like to see every possible man and woman out that can ar range to participate. We need them, and the experience is valuable and worth any efforts that are exerted,” said Coach Horner. Any student who has never gone out for debate hnd hjjs any question in mind about the technicalities of turning out is welcomed at Coach Horner's office in 103 Sociology building to talk over the proposition. The freshmen tryouts will be held later on the same question. This will give them a chance to be an audience at the varsity practice on Thursday and possibly get an idea or two. A busy schedule is being arranged by the managers. Those oratorically inclined will be guaranteed an ac tive year if successful in the tryouts. Remember that the tryout Thursday is not the last one, but get started early. Sculpture Students To Cast Models for Campbell Memorial Dean Ellis F. Lawrence of the school of architecture and allied arts announced yesterday that the sculpture department would aid in the execution of models for the de tail of the President Prince L. Campbell memorial court of the Fine Arts building. Dean Lawrence, who is drawing the plans for the building and its detail, also feid that the complete plans would be ready for use in about a month. The building is a memorial to President Campbell, but this little inner court will be especially dedi cated to him, according to the dean. In a niche in a small pavilion at the end of the court will be a bust of President Campbell, done in bronze by Phimister Proctor, who also executed the Pioneer statue. Other figures which will symbol ize his life, traits, achievements, and reward will also be placed in the court, which is surrounded on two sides by a cloistered arcade leading to the pavilion. At the en trance of the pavilion two figures, one carrying the Holy Writ and the other a crusader’s sword repre ienting the armor of. preparation, are on guard. Dean Lawrence stated that Avard Fairbanks, former head of the sculpture department, plans to do the largest figure of the court, a representation of light conquering darkness, symbolizing education. Zebras Scrap Kappa Sigma For 'A’ Title Eberhart, Lindstrom. High Pointers, Will Have Shooting Duel Two Hot Scrimmages At Men’s Gymnasium Sigma Chi Loses Tussle To Phi Kappa Psi Kappa Sigma and the Zebras tangle this afternoon. McArthur court is the place, and 4:15 p. m. is the time. If you haven’t been fol lowing the Intra-mural League you may not know-that this game is for the championship of league A, and if you have been following the hap penings close enough you might think that this game would proba bly decide the donut title. Both teams have won four games and lost none. The two high point men in the donut league will meet in this en counter. Eberhart, present title holder with 45 counts, will center for Kappa Sigma, and Lindstrom, Zebra forward, who has 43 markers, will be in the lineup for the “stripes.” Both men shoot unconsciously and dropping them through the iron hoop is. a common occurrence for them. This game will be a revelation. Come up and see it. Ladies you are more than welcome. Other Games On At the men’s gymnasium there will be two other contests. Theta Chi and Chi Psi will fight it out at 4:15, and Sigma Nu and Sigma Al pha Epsilon will be ready when the whistle blows at 5:00. Three fast games this afternoon; what more could you want for nothing? The Phi Psi basketeers Tiave cer tainly imbibed something spirited since their terrific beating at the hands of Beta Theta Pi. Yesterday afternoon in the men’s gymnasium they took a hard fought game from Sigma Chi. At the end of the first half the score stood in favor of Phi Kappa Psi, 11-7^ Sigma Chi tight ened up and evened the score at one time in the second half, but Phi Psi shot another basket, beating them 15-13. Bob Foster was the shining light for Phi Psi. This lanky boy dropped the ball in for 10 counters. Ted Stoddard, Sigma Chi guard, is smooth, slick, and fast. He busts em ’ up under the basket he is guard ing, then trips down the floor and pots one himself. Delts Win Easily Delta Tau Delta took a one-sided game from Alpha Upsilon, 24-6. Wolf was high pointer for the Delts. Chas tain flipped in two long shots for the Alpha Ups. This game was com pleted without a single foul being called on either side. Up at McArthur court there was only one game, Sigma Pi Tau losing to the Phi Gamma Delta, 35-6. The score does not do justice to the game itself. The play was fast, with both teams shooting practically the same amount. The rest of the story is that Fiji converted their tries and S. P. T. didn’t. D. T. D. 24 Alpha Upsilon 6 Wolf (8) .f.

Blackness Enshrouds Whispered Mysteries Of Sophomore Dance A deep dark secret—deep, in the depths of Hendricks basement; dark, in its cold shining blackness. Gobblins and witchesl Who said anything about them! Perlinps it’s stalking leopards, lions, and such that will prowl around the dusky wall. Or maybe stark white noth ingnesses will poke their drawn faces through the blackness. Don’t shrink, little frosh. ’Tis but maybes; not the Known. Set above a sleek floor, in tune to syn copating rhythm, you need not worry your head about aught but the dance. The Armory has witnessed many a spectacle, but never one such as will be staged there Saturday night. Sophs are disappearing from classes, shirking dates, laboring frantically —all for the cause of a mightier, more glorious Informal. Lester Johnson Gets Trophy For Scholastic Work Hal Harden Runs Close For Spaulding Cup With 56 Points Loster Johnson, ’29, a baseball letterinan has been announced as winner of the Spaulding trophy, which is awarded every term to the athlete making the best scho lastic record in the University, according to Mel Cohn, chairman of the scholarship committee of the Order of “O. ” Johnson’s average for the spring term of last year was 1.7 or 62 points. The record was made during the active season of his major sport, baseball. His home is in Portland, and he is majoring in economics at the University. During his time at the University Johnson has been president of the To-Ko-Lo, sophomore honorary; chairman of welcoming committee of high school delegates in his sopho more year; baseball letterman and vice-president of baseball and of the Order of the “O” this year; on the honor roll last spring, chairman of sophomore underclass mix this fall, and chairman of field CQpimittee on the Homecoming directorate this year.

They are: Mel Cohn, Bill Powell, tennis let terman, and Joe Price, trackman. Vie Wetzel, star varsity end on the Lemon-Yellow football team, was the last winner of the cup, hav ing the highest grades during the last winter term.. Homecoming Workers Complimented by Hill Thanks to the members of the Homecoming directorate and to the many committees working under it for their work in making Homecom ing a success this year has been ex pressed by George Hill, general chairman of the directorate. “The many jobs necessary to make Homecoming a success are big responsibilities, and tho workers this year are to bo complimented,” declares Hill. Powell Names Directors of Prep Session Talks on Pertinent Topics In Discussion Groups Main Factors Week-End Important Event for Delegates Faculty Committee to Aid Directorate Personnel of the directorate for the eighth annual high school con ference, to be held on the campus, January 13 and 14, was announced yesterday by William Powell, gen eral chairman of the conference this year. Tho directorate will consist of the following: assistant chairman, Art Anderson; secretary, Louise Clark; housing and registration, Joe Rob erts; Women’s League, Esther Hardy; welcoming and campus tour, Jack Jones; banquet, Josephine Ral ston; correspondence, Bob Hynd; entertainment, John Cusick; public ity, Paul Wagner. Delegates Grouped Delegates to the conference this year will be in four groups: student body officers, editors of annuals and school papers, representatives of the girls’ leagues, and faculty advisors. Each group will have talks on its individual problems by prominent men from all over the country, as well as discussion groups on timely subjects having to do with their particular field. A faculty committee, consisting of Dan .Clark, George Godfrey, Earl Pallett, and Elmer H. Shirrell, has been appointed to work with the various student committees in mak ing arrangements for the confer ence. Discussion of the problems that confront the student body officers in their own high schools will be an important part of the conference. Those students will be able to go back to their high schools with a much broader viewpoint, after min- . gling with the representatives from the other high schools in the state, according to Chairman Powell. Entertainment Planned Several events have already been planned for the entertainment of the delegates during their two-day stay at the University. A specially conducted tour of the campus is being arranged by Jack Jones, who is in charge of this phase of the en tertainment. A banquet for all delegates, which is being planned by Miss Ralston, will be an opportunity for the high school leaders to hear the various student body officers, members of the faculty, and others speak. “This week-end is the one oppor tunity for the University to enter- . tain the leading high school stu dents from all over the state, and it should be made a week-end that they will remember when deciding on a school to attend,” said Powell, in speaking of the need for the whole-hearted support of the stu dent body in putting over a suc cessful conference. College-Year Section Open Sesame For Ambitious Hollywood Aspirants The Oregona’s request to stu dents for snapshots to help fill 22 pages of the college-year section evidently fell on broken ear drums for so far no pictures have been re ceived. Mary Benton, editor, de sirous of making the 1928 Orqgana more representative of campus life, is urging that students turn in all available snapshots of themselves and their friends to Dorothy Baker, section editor, by sticking them to the bulletin board in the journalism building. Previous Oreganas have been filled with a limited and entirely too sectional range of pictures. This has not been the fault of editors, but due to the lack of available pictures. This plan is calculated to give the students a chance to seleet the pictures themselves and will give them many chances to grace the pages of the Oregana if they hard in good pictures. Perhaps some of the pictures will have to be staged, but the editors urge that group pictures do not rep resent a line of victims before the firing squad at sunrise. Pictures should be taken illustrating action so that they will tell their story without titles. Swimming, golfing, riding, pigging, tubbing, canoeing, hiking, and any rare shots showing a student studying are welcome. Serenade picturos will be more striking if the photographer will include the police strying to stop them. The college-year section is the only part of the Oregana that is the open sesame to Hollywood. It is rumored that First National, Metro Goldwyn-Mayer, and the Lloyd Hamilton comodies are looking for screen material in the college year books. Naturally they will look for their selection in-the college-year section that gives full expression of the dramatic ability of the future star trying to crash the gates for a contract. As a suggestion, Larry Semon might tender an offer to the stu dent who has his picture taken while engaged in a pie eating con test with the pioneer. The Oregana nee'ds you (not Uncle Sam) for the college year section. Send in your snapshots and help enhance its value by making it truly representa tive.
