k—"When Oregon and Oregon

for the 33rd time Bell field will
be thronged with the largest
crowd in its history and the
two teams, after a rest of two
weeks, will be. in top condition
to stage a great battle. The
teams have not been so evenly
matched in a long time and com
parative scores place the Orange
men and the Webfoots on a par.

season is successful with a win
over its “friendly enemy.”
Scores Even Up
Comparative scores show very
little difference. In the Washing
ton game Oregon won 27 to 0 at
Portland from the Huskies, and a
week later Oregon state won 29 to
0 at Seattle. Against Pacific,
Oregon defeated the Badgers 45 to
0, while the Orangemen a 46 to 0
victory. Oregon’s great showing
against California in which the
Bears won 13 to 0 only after a hard
fought battle, boosted" the Webfoot
stock considerab
ly, and while
Stanford won 26
to 12 from the
Lemon - lYellow,

coupled with the

in" spirit has been
aroused to avenge
the three deteats in as many years
at the hands of the Oregon Staters,
all points to a beautiful “Donnv
brook” which is Irish for scrap.'
The Orangemen will present their
usual starting lineup with the ex
ception of Carl Gilmore, fullback,
with his two years of service who
will supplant Chief Thompson at
that post in order to steady a back
field which already has its quota
of sophomores in Hughes and Sher

back positions.

Some Frosh Painting and Being Painted
It was three o’clock in the morn
ing—yesterday morning. Silence,
punctuated by resonant snores reign
ed over the fraternity sleeping
porch. The telephone rang down
stairs. After it had rung 24 times
a frosh crawled out and answered it.
He came back up stairs on the
run. In a moment bedlam broke
lose. “All freshmen out,” shouted |
the sophomores.
“Report to 11th and Alder at
once,” jawed the juniors.
"Aggie men have painted the ‘O’
on the butte and the whole campus
orange and black,” snarled the sen
iors. “The Oregon seal has been
desecrated. Up, up, my bully boys,
and on to Corvallis.”
Excited frosh shivered, as they
pulled on their old clothes in the
'cold rooms. Outside a cold rain
was falling. A rapidly growing
group of angry men were gathering
at 11th and Alder. All were eager
to go but there were ears for only
a few.
At four o’clock three Oregon
freshmen found themselves leaving
town in a model T Ford at 45 miles

Six of the men who placed in the

Clarence Hill was first, I’at Beal

Epidemic Spreads
But it was not' until last night
that the epidemic assumed truly ser
ious proportions. It was about half
past six that a series of loud vio
lent explosions resounded throughout
Eugene, and immediately fraternity j
and sorority houses began to dis
charge their howling contents into
the streets. East along Eleventh
street formed a lino of yelling, mad- j
dened students, north along Alder j
another, and north along University
still a' third. Again they appgared
to be possessed by some mysterious
power that was drawing them on,’
towards McArthur court.
At the Sigma Chi corner the Eelo
yenth and Alder street lines united j
and proceeded en masse, preceded
by the university band, which also!
seemed afflicted with the inexplic
able malady. Now the entire line
burst forth in a chant “Rah, rah,
Oregon! Rail, rah, Oregon! Rah, rah,
Oregon!”; now it sang lustily the
old time*melody “Hail, Hail, the
Gang’s All Here”; and now another
songfi a parody on “John Brown’s
Body,” which is very specific, in its!
Serpentine Enters Igloo
The line reached the Igloo, meet
ing there the one which had formed
on University street, and two thous
and or more of the afflicted, all yell
ing madly, rushed in one gigantic
serpentine into the great basket
ball Iloor. ‘•iSqucak” Parks, Oregon
yell leader, tried to quiet the tumult,
but for nearly ten minutes his ef
forts were to no avail and the wild
rush continued.
At length, when the mob had
reached a semblance of order, Parks
called on McKedwn, the° leader of
the victims. Joe stated that there I
was not one remedy for the malady |
i which seems to have affected every
I Oregon student, a trip to Corvallis. I

Webfoot Ire Alroused
The memory of three successive
defeats, which is something never
before attained by the Aggies, has
aroused the anger of the Oregon
team. All signs of influenza have
disappeared, and bruised ankles and
stiff limbs have miraculously heal
ed. The possibility of defeating
the Aggie team has acted as a
tonic to tlio battered Oregon team.
The Oregon squad is now in excel
lent mental condition to turn back
the Beaver threat.
The Beavers are doped to win.
The edge ranges from two points
to thirteen. Oregon is again the
underdog .just as it has been in
every conference game played this
Aside from the fact that the
Beavers are given a slight advan

the most evenly matched in the

of football which are unrivaled on
