    Pacific Coast
Deprived of
All-star Team
Emerald To Disappoint
Football World by
Passing Up Selection
The Emerald lias decided upon
originality as the essence and the
merit of its sport department. To
rise to this standard the sports staff
has determined to remove itself
from the triteness of convention.
Therefore, let it be known, the
Emerald unortliodoxly refuses to se
lect a Pacific coast all-star football
team for 1928.
Alas, if this doctrine of inde
pendence could be taught to the
world! Before the end of the foot
ball season, which is now not many
weeks away, there will be a tidal
wave of mythical grid teams. Ten
Pacific coast conference coaches and
perhaps 110 or 40 assistants will
1 deem it their just, and irrefutable
right to burden the public with se
lections for the all-star eleven.
At least a dozen sports editors
along the coast will allow the vari
ous grid mentors to make their
rightfully prejudiced choice, and
then the writers themselves will i
come forth with the one and only j
Pacific coast all-star football team, j
And so, ns far as the Emerald is
concerned, the world will have to
suffer along with one less all-star
* * *
Sncli a thing as an all-star team
is not even a detail in the work of
the Oregon football team. The Web
foots arc immersed in a determined
drive to defeat the Aggies at Cor
vallis on November 17. For three
consecutive years the Oregonians
have been humbled by Beaver teams.,
Oregon has nearly reached the mood
that will make a fourth Aggie vic
tory impossible.
With the sudden shrinkage in the
coaching staff, McEwan has set
about to drill the team as a unit.
Previously the line, the ends, and
the backs worked in separate
groups. Coordination was lacking
against the Stanford Cardinals, it
was developing against both Wash
ington and California, and now it
should be near perfection by the
time of the Beaver fray.
Praise for Oregon’s football team
is still drifting north from Cali
fornia. The Webfoot is described
in one California paper as a danger
ous team coming to the front slowly. .
Another paper adds further com- j
ment to Oregon and to the mucli
talked-of Benny Lorn: ‘‘It was
chiefly Lorn who stopped Captain
John J. McEwan \s sterling team
from the University of Oregon.”
St ill another newspaper is loud in
its approval of the Webfoots: ‘‘Ore
gon has some fine ball players. In
dividually, Burnell, Colbert and
Stadehnan stood out. Colbert is a
promising tackle, lie halted Cali
fornia often, as did Christensen, the :
other Webfoot tackle, until he was J
injured and carried from the field.
“Stadelman was in most of the
plays, roaming behind the line of
scrimmage to knock down passes
and catch the ball carriers.
“This Kitzmiller is a sophomore,
young and experienced and blessed
with ability, a mighty punting toe
and a change of pace that rivals
that of Lorn. Bobinson is an accu
rate passer and a good ball carrier.”
If the Webfoots continue to im
prove as rapidly as they have after
every conference game this year, j
the chances of a victory over the
Aggies is more than just bright.
Hoover, Bar her
Boyhood Friends
McNary, West, Barker
Pals of New President
“Bert” Hoover, a sliy dif f ident
youth, yet one who placed chivalry
above all virtues; a boy who had
but few close friends, yet one who
always stood ns defender and helper
of his fellowmen; a young man
whose mind was eternally busy solv
ing problems, serious even in chess
and checkers—this is the person,
known and loved long years ago in
Salem, Oregon, by Burt Brown Bar
ker, vice-president of the university,
who was one of the first to con
gratulate the newly-elected presi
To Mr. Barker, Herbert Hoover
was known ns “Bert” just as other
playmates were known by their boy
hood nicknames. Mr. Barker himself
was “Buck.” Oswald West, former
governor of Oregon, was “Butch,”
and Charles McNary, U. S. Senator
from Oregon, was “Charlie.” This
quartet played together in Salem
back in the early ’90’s, and one of
their staunch friends was “Ike”
Patterson, now governor of this
state, who then ran a small grocery
It was not until yesterday that
Mr. Barker made lpiown details of
his intimate friendship for the newly
elected president, a friendship so
highly regarded that lie did not wish
it to be exploited iii any way during
the campaign.
Hoover Was Quiet Lad
It is a warm, human story that
Mr. Barker tells. Admiration for
the qualities that brought the quiet

early felt by “Buck.” Ho recalls
their first days together, when
“Bert” said little, yet his very reti

Former Student
Named Attorney
In Grant County
Edward Hicks, Graduate of
University Last June,
Wins District Election
Edward Ilicks, who graduated from
the university law school last June,
was elected district attorney of
Grant county in the recent state and
national vote of November (i on the
Democratic ticket, according to a
telegram received the following day
by his brother, A. C. Hicks, who is
instructor in English on the. campus.
An unusual record was made by
Ilicks at the university. During the
last term in school, with the excep
tion of one course, he received all I
grades, the highest mark given. He
was also associate editor of the Ore
gon Law Review during the past
year, and contributed two articles
to this publication, “Moot Appeals
by the State in Criminal Cases,”
and “Absolute Privilege in Libel
and Slander.”
Hicks, whose father is a promi
nent attorney in Grant county, won
the Bishop Sumner essay contest
here two years ago. Last year he
won the Hilton prize of $50 offered
law students. Dean E. C. Carpenter
of the University of Oregon law
school speaks very highly of him.
Taking and passing the bar ex
amination Hicks immediately an
nounced his candidacy for district
attorney of Grant county which re
sulted in a win for the youthful
doctor of jurisprudence.
Dr. Leo Friedman, New Chemistry
Instructor, Likes Oregon Climate
Dr. Loo Friedman, instructor in
second-year and advanced inorganic
chemistry, who came to the univer
sity this year, likes Oregon and Eu
gene for' their climate, but not
especially for their golf courses.
“Oregon’s climate is very agree
able,” Dr. Friedman said. “In Wis
cousin, the winters are just plain
cold, and the. average temperature
for December and January is
around zero. Maine has about six
feet of snow with an average of
from five to ten degrees below zero
from Christmas until sometime in
March. Oregon, as you know, is
pleasant.” Dr. Friedman lamented
the fact that on a local golf course
sand was used for greens. He ad
mitted that on a recent trip he had
found better greens on Portland
However the climatic and golf
situations may be, Dr. Friedman is
busy with his sophomore class in ad
vanced general chemistry and is
supervising the work of several
graduate students working on mas
tor’s problems. The main research
work this term is being done in the
study of the swelling of rayon and
cellulose fibers. The master’s thesis
on this subject will be published in
some of the chemical journals, Dr.
Friedman stated.
The chemistry of pulp and paper
holds great interest for the new in
structor. Last week. Dr. Friedman
j accompanied Professor Orin F. Staf
ford, head of the chemistry depart
ment, to the pulp and paper confer
ence in Seattle. This meeting was
held under the supervision of the
industrial chemistry department of
the University of Washington, to
further cooperation between the
schools and the industry. As soon
as possible, Dr. Friedman will start
work on a new research problem,
the absorption of alum by pulp at
different acidities with relation to
the sizing problems.
Dr. Friedman took his undergrad
uate work at the University of
Maine, and his graduate study for
j his doctor’s degree at the Univer
1 sity of Wisconsin.

“The Oregon Knights have been
hero since li)18 and have always
functioned in many campus activ
ities. There are chapters of the
Intercollegiate Knights in practic

Photographic Studies of Machinery,
Sky-Scrapers9 At Art Gallery Now
A group of photographs done hy
Leonard Locb, professor of physics
at the University of California, are
now being exhibited at the little
gallery of the school of architec
ture and allied arts on the campus.
There aro 00 subjects included in
the group, varying greatly in type,
all the way from the skyscrapers of
New York to the dome of Lick
observatory in California, and from
railroad tracks in Chicago with
their gleaming, rhythmic lines to
the sheen of waves in a sea cave.
Nowland H. Zone, head of the ex
hibition committee of the arts
school and associate professor of
design, stated that till students of
architecture and design are finding
this exhibit very interesting. “It
shows how tlie art of photography
is being used in a simple and direct
way to record fyne patterns in
everyday material.
“Mr. Loeb is gifted with an un
usually keen ability for discovering
the picturesque in material that
would ordinarily be regarded us
commonplace,” Mr. Zane continued.
“Tlio design qualities of stool gild
ers that would ordinarily be regard
ed as incidental and uninteresting
have been proved by Mr. Loeb’s
recognition and handling to be rich
in beauty, line, tone, and form, and
so here is much about his work that
saves it from being merely pretty.”
“The type of photography shown
in this exhibit is of comparatively
recent development,” stated Dr. A.
