Is Injured In
Star Halfback Fractures
Ankle in Practice With
Freshman Grid Team
Coach Must Rebuild
Team Leaves in Morning
For Willamette Game
Gloom has replaced the buoyant
spirit of the Oregon football team.
Dave Mason, fleet halfback, is out
for perhaps the rest of the season
with a fractured ankle. Mason was
injured Wednesday night in the
frosb-varsity scrimmage. At best,
Mason will not get back into the
^ lineup before the homecoming game
with Montana, November 24.
John J. McEwan was yesterday
rejoicing the fact that his Wcbfoot
team was uninjured after the tough
battle with Stanford last Saturday.
Now the Oregon mentor is gloomily
wondering who will fill Mason’s
shoes. Yesterday’s scrimmage was
not a strenuous one, and it was first
thought that Mason’s hurt rvas only
a slight sprain. X-rays later re
vealed the fracture.
New Combination Necessary
Oregon has plenty of baekficld
reserves, but none as good as Mason.
The whole backfield combination
will have to be reconstructed, and
the mode of attack changed. Me
Ewan is planning to do considerable
shifting until he can find a set of
backs as nearly equal as possible to
the original one.
Bob Robinson, who led the Ore
gon running attack against the
Cardinals, may be moved over to
half permanently. Art Ord and
Cecil Gabriel are other halfbacks
likely to take Mason’s place. Ord,
145, is handicapped by the lack of
weight, and Gabriel, 190, does not
even approach Mason in. speed.
Coach Is Experimenting
McEwan may shift Kitzmiller,
regular fullback, to half, and put
Cotter Gould at full. Several other
changes are possible. Charles Wil
liams, reserve fullback, plays an ex
cellent game at half, and even
Choppie Parke, quarterback, can be
moved over in an emergency.
The absence of Mason from the
backfield will not impair Oregon’s
chances against Willamette univer
sity at Salem on Saturday. Mc
Ewan, however, fears the Bearcat
encounter because of the possibility
of further injury to the squad.
McEwan Fears Injuries
Any other additions to the hospi
tal list would practically ruin the
Webfoot chances against Washing
ton in Portland, October 20. Until
today Oregon was considered a
slight favorite over the Huskies, but
Mason’s loss has put Washington in
Practice last night was almost en
tirely devoted to the organization of
a new backfield set. McEwan will
I not be able to determine which com
bination will be the strongest until
the Willamette contest. The Bear
cat contest will afford the oppor
tunity of seeing which manner of
attack is Oregon’s forte.
Oregon’s line for the Saturday’s
game will probably be the same that
started against Stanford. It i3 pos- [
siblc that there may be a shift in '
the guards. Marshall Shields, who !
relieved McCutelian last Saturday, j
may break into the starting lineup, j
Merrill Hagan will play the other
guard. George Christensen and Aus- j
tin Colbert, both sophomores, will
start at tackles. Harry Wood and
Woodward Archer are the likeliest
among the ends, and George Stadel- |
man will bo in at center.

Dr. Wm. McGovern, Famous Explorer,
To Speak In Villard Hall October 18
Stories of travels through the
dark" heart of South America where
white men are practically unknown,
of canoe journeys along treacherous
livers whose bend might hide an
ambush, of days spent in Indian vil
lages learning the strange customs
and beliefs of the natives, of dig
ging in the nameless ruins of lost
pre-Inca cities whose builders were
forgotten before Piz'arro sailed from
Spain—these are just a few of the
tales which can be told by Dr. IVm.
M. McGovern, explorer, author, and
lecturer, who is to speak here on the
afternoon of October 18, at 4
o’clock in Villard hall.
Although a British subject, he is
a native American. He was born
in New York and his mother is a
I native of Georgia. Dr. McGovern
received Lis Ph. D. from Oxford. He
has been about all over the world,
but his most important expedition
prior to the South American trip
was made in 1922, when he went to
Lhasa in disguise. And with it all
he is barolv "5 years old.
Finds “Animal People”
One of the most interesting events
of Or. McGovern’s Amazonian ex
pedition was the finding of “the
animal people.” Indians almost un
believably low in the human scale,
without shelters, canoes or agricul
ture of any kind. Dr. McGovern
believes that these people are rem
nants of what is eulled the pre
Asiatic race. Roughly, the theory is
that the Indian of North and South

Singers To Appear in
McArthur Court, 8:15
Critics Praise Members of
Symphony Choir Group
Again Eugene will welcome the
twenty-two gingers of the Rus
sian Symphonic. Choir, and with
even greater enthusiasm than two
years ago. Because of their suc
cessful performance at that time, the
student bo'dy requested their return,
and they will be here a second time
Monday night in McArthur court.
Five years ago they came to New
York for their first appearance in
the United States and were re
ceived with utter amazement from
the music critics who claimed never
to have heard anything like them;
but, after wagging their heads to
gether, the critics proclaimed the
Choir “wonderful,” and the United
States has now so embroidered that
first praise that even the mention of
the Choir brings thrills to music
Those who have heard Basile
Kibalchich's Russian Symphonic
Choir, say that it is like no other
clioir_ they ever heard. The fact
that it is a body of solo singers,
each superior in himself, but per
fectly joined together under Basile
Kibalchich’s able leadership, per
haps explains this.
Leader Is Famous
Mr. Kibalchich’s life shows some
reason for his remarkable success.
He was born in Tehernigoff, south
ern Russia, a country rich in folk
lore, folk songs, and a love of choral
music. Basile Kibalchich showed
musical talent as a small child, when
only twelve years old, he was asked
to lead a. large choir in his native
In 1906 he headed Russia’s most
famous choral organization, the
Archangelsky Choir iof Petrograd,
now rechristened into Leningrad.
Since then he has toured Russia as
a choral director and has led the
choir of the Russian Cathedral of
Geneva, as well as the choir of the
Russian Cathedral in Paris, and lias
appeared throughout Europe as a
Choral director. He took the sym
phony (orchestra as his model for
his own Choir and has given each
individual voice the same value as
each instrument has in the orchestra.
The effect lias been mighty.

At Big Assembly
President and Deans Lead
New Students to Seetion
Reserved at McArthur
With the greatest dignity possible
the freshmen of the University
formed a procession just outside the
doors of McArthur court yesterday
morning and, led by President Arn
old Bennett Hall and the deans of
the school who were clad in full
academic regalia, they solemnly
marched to their places. All the
freshmen were there—or at least
enough to fill the whole of the cen
ter section of seats which was re
served in their honor.
Joe McKeown, president of the
A. S. U. O., was the first person to
greet the freshmen. After welcom
ing them on behalf of the old stu
dents he asked them to keep up the
traditions, the scholastic standards,
and the spirit of Oregon. The im
portance of securing other new stu
dents for the University was em
The now students were officially
welcomed to Eugene by Frank Jenk
ins, president of the Eugene chamber
of commerce. True hospitality is
something different than mere
words, he explained, and added that
Eugene wanted to display that real
hospitality. The purpose of the
chamber of commerce was to build
a real city here, ho explained, and
added that the only way to do that
was to make the state grow. This
must be done by the citizens of Ore
gon, he went on, and as the young
people were future citizens here he
officially welcomed them.
MaTe Oregon Grow
“Your task is to make Oregon
grow,” Jenkins told the new stu
dents. “Some of you will stay here
and make the city grow and others
of you will go out and make the
Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, presi
dent of the University, wase the last
speaker to welcom,e the freshmen.
“The faculty can only help you to
help yourselves,” he told the stu
dents, and added the hope that the
instructors might inspire them back
to the things that were beautiful,
lovely, and noble whenever they felt
themselves slipping toward cheaper
When students como to college
they start building an intellectual
tower, President Hall said, and must
eome here prepared to struggle. “I
want you to learn the spirit of
power,” lie continued. “Meet peo
ple of contending opinions. Don’t
shun them.” The importance of
learning the spirit of tolerance and
open miudedness in connection with
the spirit of progress was empha
sized by the speaker. ,
University To Help
“The purpose of the University is
to help you with your problems and
equip you with intellectual power,”
he said. It should also give one a
clearer understanding of society and
polities, he explained.
Tho University of Oregon’s four
great traditions of obeying the
United States’ laws, of being demo
cratic, following the rules of chiv
alry, and getting the Oregon spirit
were explained to the students by
President Hall and their support in
carrying them out asked.
Dean John Straub presided over
the meeting. Roy Bryson, of the
school of music faculty, accompanied
by John Stark Evans, sang Kipling’s
“Boots” and Ireland’s “Sea Birds.”
