Tossed in Muddy Water
By McEwan’s Regulars
Wot Pigskin Causes
Players to Fumble
O. S. C. To Have Strong
Encounter With Oregon
Conch MeEwnn had his Oregon
varsity at. work again last night
on Hayward field in tlie toughest
kind of scrimmage with the fresh
gridders. Playing in a quagmire of
mud and water, the two aggrega
tions went through a long practice
session to continue preparations for
the Oregon State varsity and Rook
The whole varsity squad took
jg turns tangling with Billy Reinhart 's
first year team. As soon as Mc
Ewan would put one set of men
through its paces he would call an
other to the scene of action and
play would resume with scarcely a
stop for rest.
Practice Intensive
The practice lasted until darkness
made it almost impossible to see
where the plays were going and j
even the ghost hall which has be- i
come a regular feature of the work- j
outs did not aid greatly. There i
was not a big difference between I
the luminous oval and the ordinary |
pigskin because the mud soon cov- I
cred the painted ball so that its
advantages were cut down.
The practice yesterday was one
of the few that the Webfoots have
played in the rain this year. The
dry season which has marked the
season so far has made a big im
pression in the playing of both teams
ami the wet ball made it hard for j
the men to work.
Pumbles Frequent
While Oregon teams in the past |
have not been greatly bothered by
a slippery pigskin, it was an en
4 tirclv different story last night.
Tumbles by both the varsity and
frosh were very frequent and many
times the progress toward the op
posite goal line was interrupted
when some back was unable to hang
on to the ball.
Evidences of strength were pres
ent in the yearlings play. After
many weeks of drill under the
watchful eyes of Spike Leslie and
Reinhart, the frosh work as a \
smooth and powerful grid machine. J
Even without the services of Jim;
BeMersy heavy line plunger, the |
froali backs tore off big gains time]
and again through the varsity line. \
In fact, the big fullback who has [
been carrying the ball a lot oh I
power plays so far this year, was ]
not even missed when it came time j
for Reinhart’s men to open up on;
the offensive.
The rejuvenated baekfield tore
into the varsity cohorts for lengthy
gains many times during the course
of the evening and even carried
the fight to tho varsity at some
stages of the game.
Me Ewan followed his men closely
„ irist night through all of their plays
and spared no efforts to polish up
his attack for the coming contest
with the Beavers. Several regulars
got their share of fine points of i
the game last night after pulling
bobbles on some of the plays.
All of tho game was not in the !
favor of the frosh by a big margin. [
After the varsity men once got
under way the ball was kept in
frosh territory most of the time.
Even on the wet field the Webfoot
backs displayed a lot of clever
broken field running once they got
out in the- open. Had it not been
for so many fumbles tho team would

Christensen and Colbert, Holders
of Varsity Tackle Berths This Year
George Christensen and Austin
Colbert are the pair of sophomore
tackles who have been important
factors in the Oregon line play this
season. Both players were mem
bers of the frosh eleven last year,
and have had high school experience
in the tackle positions.
Standing six feet two inches in
height, George Christensen weighs
-17 pounds. He is a three year high
school letterman, playing first for
Weatherwax high of Aberdeen,
'Washington, and later for Pendle
ton high. He was eoaehed in both
schools by Homer C. Taylor, trans
ferring schools with the coach.
George played at tackle on both
high school teams, as well as with
tlie frosh last year. He is IS years
old, and a major in the school of
architecture, intending to continue
in that line of work after his grad
nation. Christenson was rather badly
hurt in the ankle during the Cali
fornia game, and was on crutches
for several days afterwards. How
ever, his sprain seems to be rapidly
healing, and he is expected to be
out for practice within a few days.
Austin Colbert is a product of
Eugene high school, where he played
both football and basketball, earn
ing four letters at tackle with the
eleven, and three felt initials as
guard with the basketball quintet.
Under Coach Bob Brown, the basket
ball team won the state basketball
championship two years ago, and 1
Colbert was chosen as one of the j
guards oil the mythical all-state
five. He weighs 190 pounds, and is
an even six feet in height. Major
ing in the school of physical educa
tion, lie intends to take up coaching
after his graduation.
Rumor Spreads That Oregon Men
May Raid O. S. C. Campus Tonight
Anderson, McKeown Ask
Students To Caneel Date
Humor lias been rapidly spread
ing over the campus that prepara
tions are being made for another
annual hectic raiding of the Oregon
State college campus by a large
group of University of Oregon men
tonight, according to Arthur Ander
son, vice-president^; and Joo Mc
Keown, president of the A. S. IT. O.
Efforts are being made to prevent
any such action by the officials of
the two institutions and in the
latest report the student officers
had made standing promises to check
any such endeavors.
The O. S. 0. student body presi
dent and vice-president assured
Art Anderson and Joe McKeown of
Oregon that they would do every
thing possible to prevent any des
| trmtion of property, painting, an
' undue peregrinations on Ilia uni
versify campus by their students.
“We also agreed that we wouh
do everything that we possibly eouli
to keep our fellows from going
over there," said Arthur Anderson
“This old thing dates back fron
the time that athletic relations wen
first severed between the two in
stitutions,” Andersen explained.
“The conduct for the last twi
years has been very good and i
being built up all the time. Sued
action only gives unfavorable pub
licity to the university and doe;
not reflect any glory or credit 01
those who do it,” lie said.
Anderson and McKeowu expressed
a desire to have Oregon student;
resort to reason and live up to the
agreement made between the tw(
institutions. This, they said, would
call for a cancelling of the vis'll
to the O. S. C. campus tonight.
New Uniforms
Will Be Issued
To R.O.T.C. Soon
‘Slacks’ Will Replace Bools
And Breeches; Juniors
To Keep Former Style
Uniforms will bo issued to R. O.
T. C. students in the near future,
is the information released by Major
Barker, head of the University of
Oregon military science department.
The new trousers, or “slacks” as
they are called, have the appear
ance of regular everyday trousers.
The advantage for the students in
wearing them instead of 1 lie boots
and breeches of former days, lies
in the fact that they can change
clothes faster without having the
boots to lace or unlace.
Shipping receipts have been re
ceived for the new trousers, stated j
the major, and it is expected that a i
supply of sufficient size to outfit
the entire enrollment will be re
ceived soon.
There has been some talk on the
campus, that the R. O. T. 0. was
going to go without uniforms this
term. “This is,” said Major Bark
er, “quite untrue.”
It is true that considerable delay
has been experienced in having the
order filled, he said, but it is only
a matter of days now until the new
trousers will be ready for distribu- |
The junior officers in the R. O.
T. C. unit, composed of juniors' and
seniors, have elected to continue the
custom of wearing the boots and
breeches. *
“They like the shiny boots,”
smiled the major, “and take pride in
their appearance. I am glad of it,
for I have noticed that a man who
is not proud of his personal appear
ance seldom makes a good soldier.”
Co-op Exhibits Books
At University High
Xcxt week is national Book Week,
and in observance of it, the Univer
sity Co-op is exhibiting books, both
old and new, in 1hc library of the
University high school, according to
Marion McClain, manager.
The exhibit consists of about 50
books from the “High Hat” library,
and is for the purpose of stimulat
ing interest in good literature among
the students. Those chosen were
tliotight to be of special interest to
high school students.
Perhaps the most important of
these is an edition of “Phillip the
King,” by John Masefield, illustrat
ed by Laurence Irving. It has been
autographed by both the author and j
the illustrator, and the edition was '
limited to 750 copies.
Another illustrated and signed
edition which is also on display is
“The Graphic Bible,” by Lewis!
Browne, a Portland man. This book
is a history of the Jewish people
and has been very popular.

Social Work
Discussed By
Henry Knight
National Secretary Gives
Students Review of Task
Carried Out in Country
Scientific Fact Basis
For Modern Solutions
Professionalism C o m e. s
From Special Schools
“The trend of modern social rvork
is toward a scientific fact basis, to
ward the basing of the understand
ing of social problems, and the meth
ods of dealing with them on an in
vestigation of the causes that bring
about the problems,” said Howard
U. Knight, secretary of the Nation
al Conference of Social Workers,
speaking before the Oregon students
at assembly yesterday morning on
the subject “Modern Trends in
Social Work.”
There.are five important trends
in social work of today as contrast
ed with that of some years ago, Mr.
Knight said. These are: The trend
toward a scientific understanding;
the trend towards co-operation or
centralization in community work;
the trend towards professionalism
among social workers; the trend to
wards the actual control of social
problems; and the trend toward
public, support of social work.
Scientific Spirit Real
The most important of the modern
trends, is that towards a scientific
spirit in dealing with social prob
lems. “In the last few years,” said
Mr. Knight, “social work in its
various forms has become one of the
greatest ‘industries’ in the country.
At present more than $3,000,000,000
is spent annually in the United
States for the work in its various
forms. In Ohio one-third of the in
come of the state is expended in
social welfare work. Three hundred
cities in the country have commu
nity chests which aggregate $00,
000,000 every year.”
An example of the modern scien
tific attitude in social welfare work
is the attitude towards criminals,
according to Mr. Knight. A few
years ago, the question in the crim
inal court was “What shall be done
with him.’” Now the question is:
“What brought him to this state
and what can be done to take him
out of it?” Formerly, he said, so
ciety dealt only with effects, now
it is beginning to deal with causes.
To deal with a criminal properly one
must know his whole background,
his heredity, his environment, his
education, and other influences.
Worker Diagnoses Causes
“The social worker must diagnose
each case as a physician does his
patients,” Mr. Knight said, “and
from the diagnoses of causes in each
individual case determine the rem
edy which shall be applied.”
The second important trend in
modern social work, Mr. Knight
told his audience, is integration, or
centralization in community work.
A few years ago, he said, commu
nity work was carried on by a num
ber of more or less independent
groups. This resulted in repetition
and even competition in some cases
and neglect in others. Now, how
ever, lie said, such institutions as
the community chest has centralized
the work both in collecting and dis
pensing funds.
Professionalism in social work,
the third of the trends, the speaker
said, is principally the result of be
tween Id and 20 schools of' social
work scattered throughout the Unit
,ed States. Graduates of these
schools, he emphasized, are working
in a professional and scientific
spirit, giving each case which comes
before them individual considera
tion and individual treatment.
Problems Less
as a result or rne scientific con
sideration and treatment of social
problems, Mr. Knight declared, they
aro gradually being brought under
control. Such things as ill health,
old age, and unemployment aro not
the social problems' that they were
a few years ago.
The vast scale on which it is car
ried on is evidence of the wide
spread public support of social work,
the last of the five trends. “The
trend towards support of social
work is becoming more and more
evident,” he said. “The citizens of
the country must have and will have
an intelligent understanding of so
cial methods and the methods by
which they aro being met.”
Henry W. Davis, director of unit
ed Christian work on the campus,
gave the invocation before assem
bly. Doris Helen Patterson played
three harp solos, “Mighty Lak a
Hose,” “The Rosary,” and “Nio*
zuvka.” Dr. Philip A. Parsons,
professor of sociology, introduced
the speaker.

Flap Jack Queen Flips 20#,000 Hots
In Seven Years at Men’s Dormitory
Flap jacks! Dozens of them,
'hundreds, thousands of them. To
be correct, 208,000 hot cakes in
seven years is tho record of Mrs.
Ma Patton, chief hot cake maker
at the new men’s dormitory.
If all these golden brown flap
jacks were gathered together at one
time, and laid edge to edge, there
would be 17 miles of them. Enough
to reach to Junction City and leavo
three miles over.
Piled in one big stack, said hot
cakes would make a pile 4333 feet
high. Enough of them to . make
eight piles as high as tho Woolworth
building, and a ninth pile as high
as Deady hall.
After seven years of work at
Friendly hall, Mrs. Patton starts
her eighth at the new dormitory,
where she hopes to bring her hot
cake record up to the million mark.
Every Sunday morning when the
fellows come to breakfast hungry
for a bite of those golden brown
cakes, Mrs. Patton is in the kitchen
slinging batter on tho griddle, and
the finished flap jacks off onto
[dates as fast as lier hand can twirl
the lifter.
Twenty jacks at a time, is tlic
capacity of the big stove, “and even
at that they keep us hopping,” said
the flap jack queen.
“ We make about five hundred hot
cakes at a meal, and that only feeds
half the men.
“ Yrnu see, wo can’t make them
fast enough to serve to the whole
dorm at one meal, and one Sunday
we give half the men hot cakes, and
the next Sunday we serve them in
the other cafeteria line.
“Yes, there are two lines to our
cafeteria, and I guess some of the
boys do go through alternate lines
on Sunday, but perhaps that is to
escape eating my hot cakes,” she
Five thousand pounds of flap jack
flour and just gallons of milk went
into the making of those' 208,000
hot cakes, said Mrs. l’atton.
“Oood ones,” she laughed. “Well,
I’ve never known any of the boys
to bo sick Monday morning,” said
the flap jack queen turning back to
her work.
