Frosh Team
With Varsity
* -
Webfoots and Yearlings
Hold Two Hour Clash
On Hayward Gridiron
McEwan Plots Attack
For Willamette Contest
Team in Fine Condition
After Cardinal Battle
Two hours of scrimmage with the
freshmen last night gave the varsity
a real taste of action in preparation
for the game with Willamette at
Salem next Saturday. This was the
first time this season that, the frosh
have been brought in to wrestle
with the Webfooters.
The scrimmage gave McEwan an
excellent opportunity to try out
Some of his new offensive forma
tions. Several changes in the Ore
gon machine are planned for the
Bearcat contest. Their success will
largely determine the mode of at
tack against Washington in Port
land, October 20.
Strong Line Needed
The line, one of the strongest the
Webfooters have had in many years,
is the center of McEwan’s tittention.
The Oregon coach believes the real
strength of a football team depends
upon the power of the forwards. If
the line can not open holes for the
backs, the team’s offensive is
spoiled. The line’s failure on the
defense means the loss of yardage
before the backfield can stop the
opponent’s rushes.
The Webfooters are fortunate, for
there are no serious injuries as a
result of the hard battle with' Stan
ford. The Cardinals, however, are
reported to be in bad shape. Wilton,
Warner’s fleetest back, is out of the
game for perhaps a couple of weeks.
Mason Is Injured
Everett McCutehan, guard, who
scored Oregon’s touchdown on the
first kick-off, was on the side linos
last night. McCutehan has just had
a tooth removed, but will bo back
in uniform tonight. John Kitzmil
Icr, fullback, was bothered with a
sprained toe before the Stanford
game, but ho is nearly well now.
Dave Mason, halfback, was forced
out of practice early yesterday.
Mason twisted a leg in a nuixup with
the frosh. He will be out on the
field again tonight. The rest of the
squad is in fine shape, and unless
there arc some injuries in the Will
amette game, Oregon will have its
full strength against the Huskies.
Running Attack Developed
Oregon failed to gain consistently
in its running plays against Stan
ford. Tho Webfoots, however, out
passed the Cardinals throughout the
entire game. The California team’s
yardage from passes amounted to
much less than Oregon’s. The Card
inals’ line gains were several times
greater than tho Webfooters’.
McEwan hopes to develop the
Oregon running attack before the
Washington game, and may even or
der passes taboo for the Willamette
contest. If the Webfooters are not
permitted to forward pass against
the Bearcats, they will have to make
their gains on smashes.

Ancient Ramon Coin
Over 1500 Years Old
Received by F. S. Dunn
Professor Frederick S. Pnnn, iiend
of the Latin deportment, one of
whose hobbies is collecting Bomnn
coins, yesterday received a. coin
that is over 1500 years old.
Tbe copper coin bears the portrait
of the Empress Faustina, wife of
Antoninus Pius, who reigned over
the Roman Empire from 138 to 101
A. P. This he compared witji a coin
of a later date, in his collection,
bearing the portrait of Faustina’s
daughter, who was the wife of the
famous Marcus Aurelius. The coin
profiles represented both women as
very beautiful, and looking so much
alike that differentiation would be
impossible if it were not for the
fact that Faustina wears her hair
on the toj) of her head, while her
(bwighter is shown with her fair
tresses looped gracefully on the nape
of her neck. The women of ancient
Rome, Professor Dunn remarked I
humorously, did not change their j
style of hairdressing every year or j
two as do the women of modern 1
America, but pronounced changes !

tion. Thus he is. able to date the
The Empress Faustina was so
highly esteemed by her subjects that
after her death they deified her,
and erected a temple to her in the
forum, which is still standing, al
though it is now used ns the church
of .San Lorenzo. This explains the
inscription on the coin “Diva (di- j
vine) Faustina.” The reverse bears
tho figure of some goddess, and the
letters “S C,” standing for “Senat

A friend of Professor Dunn’s, a
high school teacher in Tacoma, sent
him the coin for his inspection. She
says in a letter accompanying it that
the coin was picked up by a student
of hers'on the north coast of Africa
and sent to her.

The campus chest discussion was
laid on the table in order that 'mem

to consider the matter. The plan
was declared “right in yirinciple,”
but not so successful in practice.

Traditional "Hello” Discussed by
Grads Visiting On the Campus
Opinions Vary, but Most
In Favor of the Custom
Tlioro 1ms boon n g-oat deal of
speculation and discussion on the
campus recently as to whether the
old “hello” tradition survives or
not. Opinions seem to vary. Some
would have it that we are still as
fyiendly and democratic, as ever
and that as many “hellos” echo
over the campus as of yore, and
others say that the dear old spirit
is of the past and is extinct or rapid
ly becoming so.
“I don’t think that the old custom
of saying "hello” to everybody you
meet on the campus has changed at
all,” says Cliff (Sheet) Manerud,
’:20. “Why, just as many students
speak to me now as when I was in
school, and I don’t know them all
by a long sight. T didn't then.”
On the other hand “Baa” Wil
liams, a member of the same class
as Mr. Manerud, thinks that the
spirit has died out almost entirely.
He says:
“It isn’t the same, the old “hello”
spirit, as it was when I was in
school. Why, thou everybody you
met spoke to von and everybody
knew everybody else at least by
sight and sound. It was a wonderful
tradition, and I hate to see it go
because with it Oregon loses some
of her fine old “spirit.”
And then he added,
“But say, the spirit at the Ore
gon-Stanforil game the other day
was certainly fine. It. couldn’t be
Bean Eric \V. Allen, school of
journalism, who has been on the
campus since 1!)12, thinks that while
the old tradition of saying “hello”
to everyone that you meet on the
campus is passing, it is not to be
deplored because of the size of the
school. There were 700 attending
the University when he came, and
it was not difficult for students to
remember all the faces. But now
when there ate so many on the cam
pus he thinks it is an almost im
possible custom. He says,
“I think the custom of friendly
greeting to everyone is one that
ought to be cherished but whether
the word ‘hello’ is the best policy

French Instructor
Publishes Book On
Count de Gobineau
Professor Rowbotham, an instruct
or in Freneli, who joinocl the Uni
versity of Oregon fneulty this term,
is the author of a book, “The Liter
ary Works of Count do Gobineau,”
which is now being published in
Paris by the Champion house.
Count do Gobineau was a nine
teenth century French author whose
work lias been attracting a great
deal of attention in France since the
war. Diplomat, orientalist, ethnolo
gist, ns well as a literary artist, he
was known before the war chiefly
for his work on race theories, being
one of the protagonists of the so
called Nordic, theory.
P/of. Rowbotham’s book treats
not only of de Gobineau’s .literary
works, but also supports his claim
to literary greatness. Of recent
years do Gobineau’s skill as a short
story writer has been gaining in
creasing recognition.
Many Girls Get Jobs
From Y.W.C.A. Bureau
Calls for University girls to do
work are received in great quanti
ties by Dorothy Thomas, secretary
of the y. W. C. A. She is the ono
who supplies University girls to
take care of the baby while mother
goes shopping, girls to accompany
the aspiring young musician, and
girls to work for their room and
“Last year $10,500 was earned by
girls who received work through the
Y. W. C. A.,” said Miss Thomas,
“but this year we have placed more
girls than ever before.”
So far this year thirty-nine women
have received regular jobs through
the Y. W. C. A., and a great number
of others have been supplied with
temporary work..
Girls who will work for board and
roonu are most in demand, though
there are many calls for students to
do housework once a week in vari
ous Eugene homes.

Big Increase of Sophs
Noted in Chemistry
An increase >of 100 per cent over
last year’s registration of second
year students in chemistry, is re
corded by O. F. Stafford, head of
the chemistry department. Upper
class students have risen 20 per
cent while freshmen remain slightly
under normal.
A growing appreciation of chem
istry, in life, is the explanation
Professor Stafford gives for this
increase. Nearly half of the chem
istry sophomore classes are com
posed of pre-medical students, who
feel that in the future chemistry
will be necessary for successful
practice, he thinks.
An Editorial That Failed
It is oiu duty herewith to record the fact that we have j
written an editorial which has failed in its purpose, failed
completely, utterly and without reservation.
The editorial was published in Tuesday’s issue of the
Emerald under the heading, “Will the faculty kick through?”
The idea it sought to express was that student and
faculty should co-operate in the tedious process of registration;
and the remedy it offered was the placing of faculty repre
sentatives in the outer hall of McArthur court during the
registration period so that the student would not be forced
to hunt from one end of the campus to the’ other to find his
future profs.
We feel that the editorial has failed because as far as
we have been able to ascertain, not one professor, not one
assistant professor, not even one instructor has held it up to
his classes as an object for ridicule. The success of an editorial
generally can be gauged by the response it receives from those
at whom it is aimed, whether it be an editorial of praise,
condemnation—or as in the ease of the one in question—of
Ridicule is the rear line trench of a retreating army.
We had hoped, therefore, that some one might ridicule the
suggestion. But no such luck. Our shell was a dud and not
even a volley of musketry rewarded us.
It is possible that the effort was not read, as comparatively
few editorials are. It is more probable, however, that it was

University a splendid taste of opera.
Pauline Guthrie, who distinguished
herself as Melisande in last spring’s
operatic production, is again in the
class, as well as Ernest McKannoy,
and Jack Dennis, both of the men’s
glee club, and Madame’s class of
last year. Of the new talent en
rolled, Madame is expecting much,
and particularly of Kogcr Pfaff,
new student from Iowa, and a law
major, with a real bass voice. Much
enthusiasm is being shown by tho
pupils, aud definite work on the

Sophs Give Warning
When Francos Hill, president of
the sophomore class, hoard that, the
senior bench in front of the library
had boon smeared with a ghastly
coat of green paint spelling “19.12,”
he immediately gave warning that
the freshman class must take action
to have every drop of paint, com
pletely erased from the bench be
fore 8 o’clock Saturday morning,
when the parade starts. Heavier
and more bountiful wallops at the
hands of the paddlers will bo forth
coming if any tints of green remains
on the cement bench%early Saturday
Several upperclassmen have sug
gested that tho frosh bo marched
past the bench during tho parade
to remove the dirty numerals, and
crack a few pieces of oak on the
paint-soaked members of tho class
of 1932.
Tampering with traditions layed
down by seniors is a dangerous prac
tise, declared Francis McKenna,
president of tho senior class. Be
cause of the freshmen’s erring ac
tion, more half-inch pieces of oak
will probably be ordered for tho
skin-scalping affair this week end.
McKenna also nnndunced that a
corps of 20 senior “cops” will bo
on hand during the festivities to
see that the pitiless frosh are not
given any unnecessary humiliation.
They will also form a blockade
against any unappointed sophomores
