    Oregon’s Win
Greatest Triumph
In Many Years
Whole Coast Considers j
Web foot Team Dark
Horse of Conference |
The anti climax, tlio enthusiastic
hang-over of victory, is nearly ns
pleasant as the climax itself. The
climax was Oregon’s overwhelming,
unexpected, and satisfying suppres
sion of the Washington Huskies, 27
to 0. The sensations of victory are
new experiences for the present stu
dent body of the University of Ore
gon, but for the old-timers they are
merely a resumption of the “good
old days.”
Oregon is prolonging its new
found pleasure as though there
would never be another. But the
defeat of Washington probably is
indicative of happier days to come.
Oregon looked good against the
champion Cardinals, but Oregon
lookeil a thousand times 'better
against the Huskies. Perhaps the
Webfootcrs will improve as much
more for the California battle at
Berkeley, November 3.
It is Captain John J. McEwan’s
day to smile. For nearly two years
he withstood flurries of criticism,
and still stoutly maintained that
his third year team would begin to
show signs of promise. If this is
McEwan’s “sign” of promise, what
will the promise itself be?
In the past two years, Oregon
football teams have played brilliant
football spasmodically. Last Satur
day the brilliance started in the
first quarter, and continued, even
when the reserve team was in, until
the last quarter. It was Oregon’s
game from first to last and the
Huskies never had a chance.
The spirit of the Webfoot victory
will not die in a few days. Bather,
it will increase, and build up the
team for the California game less
than two weeks away. California
defeated Oregon last year, and is
stronger this season. Oregon is
stronger too, so the battle should be
a tremendous one.
After the Oregon-Stnnford game,
Glenn S. Walmer, Cardinal coach,
declared that no Pacific coast team
would end its conference scliodule
undefeated. Oregon has had its de
feat, and now perhaps, the team can
battle its way to more victories.
It is a long time sinec the Web
footers have played in a game that
may decide the championship. Cali
fornia, undefeated, but with a tie
against the Trojans, must win from
Oregon to stay in the running for
the title. The best of the problem
is that Oregon is not out of the
championship running either.
Perhaps a championship for Ore
gon this year is a little too pre
mature, but it is cpming soon. The
Webfoots’ sophomore lino will be
here for two years, and the back
field will not be shattered at the
end of the season. It was natural
ability and good coaching that won
for Oregon lust Saturday, and the
team will improve greatly ns it be
comes more experienced.
* * *
The Webfoots will have two full
weeks of practice before the game
with the Bears. California, though,
plays the Olympic club next Satur
day. The Bears, however, undoubt
edly will use a reserve squad against
tlie clubmen, and save the regulars
for the big Oregon team.
Injuries have hit Oregon, but Me
Ewan thinks tjic team will be yi j
fine shape by the California game, j
George Stadelman lias a bad foot, j
Cotter Gouhl a wrenched hip, George J
Christensen a sprained ankle, and j
George Chappell a twisted knee.

Nearly a Thousand Pounds of Victory On This Oregon Line
Here is the heart of the Oregon football team which humbled the
Washington Huskies last Saturday, 27 to 0.. George Christensen, Mer
rill Hagan, George Stadelman, Marshall Shields, and Austin Colbert were
just too much for the Huskies to break down. Below is Arnold Bennett
Hall, president of the University, congratulating Captain McEwan fol
lowing Oregon’s great triumph at Portland.

Attractive Professions Abandoned
For Teaching of Native Tongues
Medicine, commerce, or engineer-!
ing have no charms for throe new
members of the teaching staff of
the romance languages department.
Messieurs Pierre Thomas, Felix Le
graud, and Senor Juan Centeno gave
up the professions for which they
studied, to teach their native
American soldiers in France who
carried loads for women they met
and played with little children, in
terested and impressed M. Thomas
so, that when a young American stu
dent in Paris suggested that he
come.to the United States to teach
his native tongue, he fell in with
the idea immediately. Although, at
the wish of his family, M. Thomas
had taken a degree in engineering j
at Paris, and had been working at
his profession in Boumania, .lie had
never lost his intense interest in j
languages. The suggestion of the
American student decided him—he
came to the United States and for
the 20 months preceding his coming
to Oregon, studied hotv to teach
French at Middle bury college, Yer

Mine. Thomas, his wife, is now fin

After taking her degree, she will

K. E. Martin, a business admin
istration major, of tho class of ’28,
won the prize given, by the state
department of the American Legion,
to the “outstanding man,” in the
encampment from tho state of Ore
gon. Martin was also presented1
with a sabre by the Beservo Offi
cers’ Association of Portland, for
being the outstanding man in the
B. O. T. C. camp.
F. AV. McKenna, pre-law senior,

English Grad Students
Increased 30 Per Cent
An increase of 30 per cent of
graduate students enrolled in tho
English department over last year,
is noted by Ur. Rudolph Ernst, pro
fessor in that department.
At present there are 17 students
doing graduate work in English,
and nine of that number are com
ing up for their Master’s degree.
The preliminary examinations are
being held now.
“Students from many parts of
the United States have come this
year to the University of Oregon
English department to do graduate
work,” said Dr. Ernst. “It is quite
a recommendation for our depart
ment.” Massachusetts, Wisconsin,
and Minnesota are included in the
list of states.

How It Feels to Win
A Football Game
Describing bow it feels to win a football game is like des
cribing how it feels to be in love. One only knows it’s the
greatest, sensation in the world; and what else matters?
Perhaps the pulse quickens a bit, the heart seems too big.
and in aggravated eases like that at Portland Saturday, per
haps it seems that tears must come. But those are all symptoms
of other things; the pulse speeds up when one is tired from
running, the heart swells when the air is poor and tears flow
when the world is sad. They are only signs of the glorious
sensation of winning a football game. They are the signs which
yesterday would have told a stranger from the land of Mars
that Oregon had won a football game had such a stranger
dropped from the skies.
Though it is hard to describe what feeling victory arouses,
it is easy to point out the result of a glorious showing such
as that which Oregon made in defeating Washington. The
contest broke a spell which has made Oregon a losing school for
the last half decade and it paved the way for one of the most
effective years in athletics that the Webfoots ha: e ever had.
Since 1923, when Oregon failed to win a conference game on
its football schedule, only one green clad eleven has made any
thing like a satisfactory showing. That was the team of 1924
which lost one, tied one and won three. In the next three
seasons Oregon played 15 conference contests. How many of
that number did the Webfoots lose? Thirteen. That’s just
about a record. In 1925 Oregon lost every conference tilt- In

Ancient Coins Reach
F. S. Dunn From All
Sections of Country
“Money is pouring in on mo,”
says Professor F. S. Dunn, of the
Latin department, “but it isn’t
mine. People from all over Oregon
and the United States are sending
me coins to evaluate or are writing
me letters asking if I will buy coins
or examine them.
“Sometimes tlio coins I receive
arc very valuable,” bo says, “the
■ more ancient they are, the more
j valuable they become.”
One of the most interesting coins
Professor Dunn has received lately
was sent him by a man living in
Aurora. Professor Dunn has decid
ed that this coin is Byzantine, from
the eastern Koinan empire, during
the reign of Justin the second. The
date is about 577 A. D. On one side
of the coin are two figures seated,
the one on the left holding an orb,
a sign of authority. Around these
figures is the, inscription, “I). N.
I VS TIN US P. F. AUG.” The sec
ond person, Professor Dunn believes
to be, Tiberius Constantine.
On the other side of the coin is
an “MV standing for money, with
Anno on one side and three perpen
dicular lines on the other. Under
neath is the inscription “XiKO,”
the mint mark.
Botany Class Makes
Valley Tour; Finds
Interesting Flora
Dr. Ethel I. Sanborn’s graduate
class in paleobotany or fossil bot
any, took an interesting trip last
week to Goshen, a few miles south
of Eugene, to study the numerous
fossil remains there. A largo as
sortment af rocks containing fossil
impressions of leaves and flowers
were brought back by the class. The
best remains arc found in the soft
sandy rock around Goshen, and when
the rock is split open carefully, one
will often find a good specimen.
Dr. Sanborn is collaborating with
Dr. it. W. Chancy, of the Carnegie
Institution of Washington in the
publication of a paper on the fossil
flora of Goshen. Dr. Chancy, is in
charge of paleobotanical study on
the coast for the Carnegie Institu
tion. The report of Dr. Sanborn’s
and Dr. Chaney's findings will be
out about the first of the year.

Oregon Student
Seriously Hurt
On Way to Game
A. F. Murray in Hospital
As Result of Accident;
J. Dodds Has Fracture
Andrew F. Murray, a sophomore
in architecture, is in tho Pacific
Christian hospital, seriously injured,
and John Dodds, freshman in chem
istry, suffered a fractured wrist as
a result of an automobile accident
which occurred Friday afternoon on
the Pacific highway one mile north
of Halsey.
Tho two injured men and three
other university students were cn
route to Portland for tho Orcgon
Washington football game at the
time tho accident occurred. Ac
cording to David Or. Wilson, a mem
ber of the party, Maurice Treadwell,
driver of tho car, attempted to pass
two cars on tho highway and was
forced into tho ditch when the lead
ing car stopped, forcing the second
to swerve sharply into Treadwell’s
path. When he attempted to slow
down, tho front wheel brakes lock
ed, turning the car over into the
ditch. Dodds, who with Murray
was riding on tho running hoard
of tho machine, jumped and escaped
injury other than his fractured
wrist. Murray was pinned under
the rolling car and suffered three
broken ribs, punctured lung tissues,
an injured spinal column, and four
fractures in his pelvic bone.
The injured boys were picked up
by Bon F. Dorris, state game com
missioner and a graduate of tho
University of Oregon, and wore tak
en into Halsey, where they were
given medical treatment by Dr.
Marks. From there Murray was
rushed to Eugene by ambulance and
was placed in (lie hospital, where
according to Dr. Goorgo I. Hurley,
his attending physician, lie will be
forced to remain for several months.
According to hospital officials,
Murray is in as good condition as
could ho expected, hut a tight brace
about his hips keeps him in con
stant pain.

Oregon Spirit
Comes To Life
After Victory
Eight o’Clook Is Signal
For Students To Start
Fireworks, Serpentine
Classes Mean Nothing
In New ‘Pep’ School
Oregon Women in Parade;
Webfoots Have Dance
Oregon ns a University was yes
terday replaced by a revived insti
tution—tile Oregon Pep school with
an enrollment of about 3000.
Oregon’s smashing victory over
the University of Washington foot
ball team last Saturday afternoon
in Portland, was more than enough
to stick a pin into a longtime sleepy
Oregon spirit. The outcome of tho
gridiron classic forced the dynamit
ing of the University of Oregon in
favor of the Oregon Pep school.
Leaders Have Real Following
Leaders of the newly revived in
stitution gathered early Monday
morning—perhaps after no hours of
sleep the night before—to enroll the
largest number of supporters ever
grouped together for a pep session.
Classes—they meant very little to
tho Oregon Pep school.
Starting outside of Commerce hall,
about 8 o’clock, several students or
ganized a lino and proceeded to
march through tho corridors of the
building breaking up nearly all the
classes in the hall as tho serpentina
iiue increased in length.
Oregon Spirit Appears
And then started the fireworks.
Tho Oregon spirit of old appeared
to be blossoming again. Thirteenth
street was being blocked by a howl
ing, cheering mass of Oregon stu
dents. Prom Condon hall, they camo
streaming out in hordes; from Ore
gon, they came dashing up the street
to join tho flock of rooters; from
tho library, there came many who
cast aside their scholastic duties;
from here, they came, from there
they came, from everywhere.
Oregon women became so affected
by the spread of Oregon spirit
among the men that they could not
bo kept from forming their own
serpentine and add to tho roaring
tumult of “Oregon, Oregon, Rah!
Rah! Oregon!”
The Administration building soon
became the center of action. “Wc
want a holiday,” came like a thun
der of noise against the walls of
Johnson hull as the cheering crowd
winded its way back and forth, up
and down, and all around the front
entrance of tho Administration
No reply came. No signs of au
thority appearing on any platform.
No President llall coming out to de
liver a good word to the howling
mass. What’s tho matter? Can't
the authorities understand?
“We want prexvl” No answer.
“We want Shirrell!” No signs of
immediate response.
Angered by the failure of their
efforts to awaken the authorities,
the unorganized mob bellowed, “ WE
Not enough yet, so the serpentino
formed again and tramped its way
through the Administration building
ringing out its appeal more than
Over. “We want a holiday!” No
results yet. “Let’s take a holiday!”
What more could they do?
Dean Shirrell Speaks
“Sh-h-h—That quieting noise
finally made its way against tho
noiso of the students. Dean Shirrell
finally speaks. “What did lie sav?”

Inefficiency Big Chinese Bogie
Holding Nation From Progressing
“The big bogie in China at the
present time is inefficiency and cor
ruption among the officials, par
ticularly among the military class.
Personal ambition, desire for power,
stand in the way of a unified state,’’
member of the department of ro
said Dr. Arnold IT. Rowbotham, new
manro languages, in an interview
recently. Dr. Rowbotham was for
the ten 'years from 1913 to 1923
head of the French department of;
the Tsing Hua university, the Boxer
indemnity college in Peking. The
university prepares students who!
come to this country to study.
The present is a promising time
for China, ho thinks, because for
the first time there is one party
in control. The question is, are
those four leaders of the party
(Chiaug-Kai-Shek, Feng Yu Hsiang,
Yen Chishan and Clonrral Lei) go
ing to bo able to subordinate tludr
own ambition to tlio good of the
country, will they be able to create
a national army out of the scattered
fighting sections, can they inspire
foreign nations with confidence in
their ability to govern themselves
to the end that those nations will
grant them the largo loans necessary
to develop the country?
“To bo a strong nation just as
Japan is a strong nation is tho aim
of tho young Chinese party,” Dr.
Jiobotham continued. “They feel
that China ought to be made over
according to Western ideas of effi
ciency. For that reason they have,
of course, an intense desire to enter
into relations with the West to learn
what the West ean teach them.”
“But can Western ideals be im
