Tomorrow Morning
Oregonians To Hold Final
Grid Practice Tonight
Thirty - tliroe Oregon football
plovers, eager to topple the Huskies
in Portland on Saturday, leave
Eugene Friday morning at S:00
o’clock. The Webfooters will hold
a final workout on the Multnomah
Civic Stadium gridiron Friday after
The slight touch of gloominess in
John .T. McEwan's opinion of the
team at the first of the week has
lifted, and the Oregon mentor is
beginning to express some of the
confidence of his players. McEwan’s
statement that the team is in per
fect condition and should give the
Huskies a tremendous battle in
Portland Saturday adds further en
thusiasm to Oregon’s prospects.
The final selection of Oregon’s
starting line-up is the culmination
of nearly two weeks of experimen
tation. Dissatisfied by the lack of
co-ordination between the backfield
and tiie line, McEwan and the coach
ing staff immediately set about
after the Stanford game to discover
new combinations.
Oregon Lineup
Oregon’s lineup for the Husky
game announced by Mc-Ewan Wed
nesday night includes George Stadcl
mr.n, center; Merrill Hagan and
Marshall Shields, guards; Austin
Colbert and George Christensen,
tackles; and Ted Pope and Wood
ward Archer, ends. In the back
field will be George Burnell, Charles
Williams, John Kitzmiller and Cot
ter Gould.
The backfield cojnbination has
been giving the Oregon coaches
trouble since Dave Mason, star half,
was put out of the game indefinite
ly after sustaining a fractured ankle
in scrimmage with the freshman
team last week. McEwan believes,
however, that the new backfield set
carries as much power as the orig
inal one.
Oregon’s revamped backfield car
ries both speed and power and .a
strong passing attack. Burnell and
Kitsiiniller furnish the speedj al
though both, particularly Kitzmil
ler, are line plungers. Most of the
line smashing will be up to Gould
and Williams. Burnell in place of
Ira AVoodie and Bob Robinson, will
call signals, and do much of the
passin g.
Kitzmiller, playing his'first year
on the varsity', has already been
dubbed the “Flying Dutchman.”
Kitzmiller started the Stanford
game but was slowed up by an in
jured toe. lie is in excellent con
dition now, and should be one of
Oregon’s chief threats for the rest
of the season. He will play safety
against the Huskies, and do all the
Changes Since Card Game
Two changes have been made in
the Oregon line since the Stanford
game. Marshall Shields has replac
ed Everett McCutchan at guard,
and Ted Pope shoved aside Harry
Wood on end. Shields is one of the
most alert linemen on the squad,
according to McEwan, and has a
keen knack of sensing the emenies ’

Young Spanish Instructor Thinks
Students in Spain Have Advantage
Juan Centeno Says Exams Come but Onee;
Likes Both Football and Oregon Weather
Spanish university students have
nn advantage over those in Ameri
can universities in at least one re
spect, believes Juan Centeno, young
Spaniard who has been employed
since the first of the month in teach
ing fine points of his native tongue
to one or two hundred Oregon stu
dents. “In Spain a student is given
only one examination during his col
lege career,” he says. “It is given
orally by a professor, and if he
passes it he receives his degree and
I graduates. If he does not pass, lie
stays in school until he does.”
Mr. Centeno is a very popular
gentleman, and extremely hard to
pin down long enough for an inter
view, but a, merciless reporter cor
nered him in his office in Oregon
hall yesterday, and found out some
very interesting facts about higher
educhtion in old Castile.
“Residence at the universities in
Spain is not required in order to ob
tain a degree,” Mr. Centeno said.
“A student registered in a univer
sity can be away as much as he
pleases. All that is required of him
is that lie be able to pass his big
examination when the time comes.’'
Upon coming to this country Cen
teno was struck by the ease of so
cial contacts between men and
women of the universities. “It
seems so easy for the men here to
become acquainted with the wom
en,” he said.
“In Spain it is very different. In
the universities there one must be
acquainted with a girl for several
months before it is considered proper
to ask for permission to call. But
it seems not so at all here in
Any one looking at Mr. Centeno
as he said this would very naturally
think that perhaps he finds Ameri
can girls so easily approachable for
other reasons than their natural
amiability. He is a real Castilian
in appearance. Large brown eyes
attract the attention at first glance.

University women are taking
more of an interest in the straw

Going to the Game?
‘Act Now’ Is Advice
Want to see the Washington
game? Got a dollar? All right, but
hurry and borrow it. “It’ll be too
late to remember to do it after Fri
day morning, and just try,” says
“Doc” Robnett with a glint in his
eye, “to get one in Portland on the
rating of your student body ticket.”
Sure, go ahead and try it. In the
meantime put it down in your note
book—one dollar—Co-op—grey tick

Students and Faculty Members
Frolic at Gay Allied Arts Party
Bright frocks, cords, “red hot”
jazz, hum of voices intermingled
with laughter, the scornful but in
terested-looking stag line near the
door—this was the frolic held by
the arts students last night.
The annual “bust” of the school
of architecture and allied arts, hon
oring new students and freshmen in
the department, was held in the
dancing room of the Woman’s build
ing from 7:30 until 10:30. This get
together was the first of the year.
Not only students but faculty
members in painting, sculpture,
architecture, interior decorating, de
sign, and the normal arts aided in
the creation of an atmosphere of
Arnold Bennett Hall, president
of the University, talked to the stu
dents for a few moments. Ellis F.
Lawrence, dean of the school, also
said a few words.
Plans for the bust were made by
the council of the Allied Arts
League, which sponsored the mix.
Members of the council are Carl
Heilborn, Murlin Drury, Glen Gard
iner, Kenton Hamaker, Hilda Wank
er. John Breneiser, Fred Stevens,
Katherine Talbot, and Dorothy
Hilda Wanker was in charge of
the refreshments which were served
during the evening, and Murlin
Drury engaged Clare Hartman’s
three-piece orchestra to play for the
Chaperones for the party were
Mr. and Mrs. Nowland B. Zane, Mr.
I and Mrs. Eyler Brown, and Mr. and

tended the “bust.”
Classes Will Be
Dismissed This
Saturday, Hall
U. of O. President Believes
Make-ups Ought To Be
Given Students Later
All Saturday classes will lie dis
missed so tliat Oregon students may
go to the Washington game in Port
land, according to word received
from President Hall. The adminis
tration believes that enough inter
est is being shown by the students
in the game to warrant a dismissal
from Saturday classes providing
these classes are made up later.
The message from the president
The football game in Portland on
Saturday, October 20th, has aroused
so much interest on the campus that
the event will be marked by a gen
eral exodus of students. It is fear
ed by some that the work of fol
lowing the Tuesday, Thursday, Sat
urday schedule, will be seriously
crippled if sessions are held on Sat
urday of this week. Instructors in
charge may, at the request of stud
ents, dismiss the Saturday exercises
provided provisions are made for a
substitute session at some time when
the schedule is free and at a time
convenient to instructors and stud
ents alike. We believe it desirable
to adhere to the principle that no
work should bo omitted as a conse
quence of suspension on Saturday.
Horace McClure Dead;
Graduate of Oregon,
Noted in Journalism
Horace McClure, Oregon graduate
of the class of 1890, died last Sun
day in Seattle leaving many friends
in the northwest. Professor E. II.
McAlister of the mechanics and
astronomy department was one of
Mr. McClure’s 12 classmates.
Mr. McClure, an excellent debater
in his college days, was active

member of the men’s literary society
and was especially interested in
journalism. Although there was no
glee club at that time, he sang with
a boys’ singing club. After gradua
tion, he went to Seattle where he
entered journalism. He rose to
prominence there and was at one
time managing editor of the Seattle
Surviving Mr. McClure are four
brothers and one sister, all of whom
were graduated from the University
of Oregon. One of his brothers is

McKeown Admonishes Students
In Regard to Game at Portland
Oregon Students—
The result of Inst, year’s football
trip to l'ortlaml is known to us all.
The University received a bad name
because of the conduct of supposedly
Oregon students. The Portland peo
ple and alumni were dissatisfied
with the showing of both the Ore
gon team and the Oregon student
body. This year it must lie different.
The University administration at
first decided to handle the affair,
but after careful thought and de
liberation it was decided that the
students themselves should assume
the responsibility. Consequently,
the problem becomes the obligation
of every Oregon student.
Every plan for tho Portland trip
has been worked out by the student
committees. The special trains have
beeif arranged—a rally planned—
and tlu‘ Oregon spirit must dominate
the whole affair. The students
should go to Portland—display their
enthusiasm- but do it in a manner
that will reflect credit rather than
discredit on this school.
Remember, if last year's perform
ance is repeated, it means no more
games in Portland. Such a situation
will result in Oregon’s becoming n
second rate in football because tlie
large institutions will play else
where, the gate receipts in Eugene
being too small. Then, too, another
episode like last year’s means a bad
reputation for Oregon.
Fellow-students, it. is a serious
matter. The University administra
tion has left it up to us. Wo must
not ignore the responsibility. If a
single Oregon student is guilty of
misconduct it reflects on the whole
We can all go to Portland,; the
rate is low; and trains come and go
for three days.
Let’s show Portland a real rally
on Saturday and Oregon fight at
the game. Those who do not return
on Saturday night’s train, conduct
yourselves as men and women repre
senting an institution of which you
are proud and of which you think
too much to hurt her good name.
Then when if is over not.only will
our football team, but our student
body as well, deserve the praise and
admiration of the whole state.
Railroads Plan
Student Specials
To Husky Game
Southern Pacific, Oregon
Electric To Send Trains
On Friday and Saturday
Several special trains will lie pro
vided for students who plan to go
to Portland this week-end for the
Oregon-Wnshington football game.
Friday morning at S:00, two or
three special coaches will leave
from the Southern Pacific depot ar
riving in Portland about 12:00
o ’clock.
The train which is expected to
carry the most students is the
Southern Pacific special which will
leave from Villard hall at 4:00 Fri
day afternoon. The specials will
be equipped so that passengers may
go from one car into another with
out opening any doors or tho tike.
These conveniences are being pro
vided to enable the students to en
joy themselves thoroughly.
The Oregon Electric will have a
special leaving Saturday morning at
8:00, but students may go on the
regular trains. The Southern Pacific
will also have a special leaving Sat
urday morning at 8:00 o’clock.
A special booth will be placed
between Oregon and Commerce halls
on Thirteenth street so that stud
ents may secure their railroad
tickets there. Both railroad com
panies offer the students the spec
ial price of $.'1.80 with the return
limit of Sunday evening.

Blonde to Brunette-or How To Enter
Lhasa, Will Be Told l»y Dr. McGovern
Dr. William Montgomery McGov
ern, tlie scientific explorer, who
speaks to the student body this
afternoon at four o’clock in Villard
hall, and who sneaked into the sac
red city of Lhasa disguised as a
Tibetan coolie four years ago, sug
gests this little hint for unpreferred
blondes. Dr. McGovern tried the
following trick and found that it
worked successfully—and painfully.
When entering Tibet a few years
ago he found that all Tibetans had
dark eyes. Dr. McGovern’s are
blue. To complcto his disguise ho
found it necessary to change the
color of his eyes and succeeded in
doing so with the aid of a few
The strange part of the story is
that the ruse worked on all the
Tibetans he met, and he was within
the gates of the sacred city of Tibet
when the discovery came. Strangely
enough it was a barking dog that
camped on his trail and howled so
dismally that attention was attract
ed to him.
I>r. McGovern was the first white
man to enter the sacred city and
come out alive. Strong religious
fanaticism has decreed that Lhasa
is for the Tibetans only. Not only
did he succeed in getting into the
eity but he got out safely and
brought with him several thousand
tcet of motion pictures which will

tomorrow afternoon. The pictures
tell the thrilling story of his haz
ardous experiences.
One of the high spots of the trip
was the photographing of a religious
parade by the Lamas of Tibet who
were celebrating an important reli
gions festival. The parade passed
directly by Lis window and ho was
able to get some very fine motion
pictures of the procession without
detection. The Lamas passed within
