    Webfoot Returns
To Ohl Jinx
Over Beaver
Homecoming Tilt With
Montana on Saturday
Is Goal of Web foot
Tt’a difficult to suppress a part
lag jibe at the very jmieh humbled
Aggie team. The Beaver campm
was built up for a victory over the
Webfoots last Saturday, and the
stinging 12 to 0 defeat rather up
set if. All day Sunday and Monday
the Beavers suffered in anguish,
but time obliterates all grief.
The Aggies forgot what time can
do. They thought the Webfoots
doomed to eternal torment with the
Beaver football team wielding tlu
instrument of torture. But the ag
gravated Oregonians turned, and
now it is the Aggie who has taken
to heel.
* * *
Well, victory is sweet, and there
may be a tendency to over-express
it. Victory after three years of
defeat is something which calls for
more than the ordinary applause.
The Oregon student body gave the
team more than ordinary applause
after its great triumph.
The old regime has returned.
Oregon is on top again, and the
Beaver is grovelling at the bottom
of the proverbial heap. Too much
sympathy for the Beaver, however,
is not necessary. When the result
of all the Oregon-Oregon Aggie bat
tles are surveyed, it is easily dis
covered that the Orangemen are
rpiite accustomed to defeat at the
bands of the Webfoots. Defeat, in
fact, has been their habit much
more than victory.
Anyway, the Oregon team played
superb football to beat the powerful
Beaver team. And of Oregon’s team
•the work of the linemen and the
ends was most outstanding. Had
neither the line nor the ends func
tioned so perfectly, the story of the
battle might have been much dif
The speedy, flashy Maple, worthy
of all the praise he receives, never
bad a chance to assert his prowess
against the Webfoots. Each time
he received a punt, he was downed
in his tracks by seven giant for
wards from the Oregon line. Even
with everything against him Maple
played a wonderful game of foot
ball, and was easily the outstanding
man on the Aggie team.
Now Oregon is truly keyed-up. It
will take a great football team to
stop them. The Webfoots have
tasted the sweetest of all victories,
a win over the traditional rival,
and they will be more than reluct
ant. to go back to the old days of
A new era of football has come
to the Webfoot school, and from
now on Captain John .T. McEwan’s
teams should be a continual tin-cat
in the Pacific coast- conference.
The Webfoots now turn their at

with Montana on Saturday. This

strong favorite to defeat the Grizzly

J. Stitt Wilson, Labor Leader,
Tells of Rise of English Party
“The British labor movement,”
was tho subject of aNlecture given
bv ,T. Stitt Wilson, former socialistic
mayor of Berkeley anti influencial
character in the founding of the
labor part in England, in Yillard
hall last night.
As an undergraduate and after he
had received his doctors degree from
Northwestern University, Mr. Wil
son left Chicago for London. This
was thirty-two years ago, and here
he studied conditions in the slums
of this large city. Living with him
were other students who came from
Oxford to study. It was here he
came in touch with many of the
early leaders, many of whom are
still living. Among them are Ram
sey McDonald and Philip Snowden
who were at this time young men.
“I became attracted to the moral
purpose of these men,” said Mr.
Wilson, “and my association with
them and their movement has had
a groat effect upon my social think
ing ever since.”
He has been in England five
times, each time to co-operato with
tlie group; in the labor movement.
Twenty years ago Mr. Wilson car
ried on extensive work in England
under the invitation of leaders in
turing, around .England with Brad
the labor party. He worked, lec
ford os its center, and also in South
Wales around Cantiff. This summer
he returned to England upon re
quest an 1 delivered addresses in
each of these centers.
“ When I made my first trip tc
England,” continued Mr. Wilson
‘•the labor party had only a few
J despised members in the house ol
j commons. They were looked dowr
! upon by the liberal and tory par
1 tjesj. All of their appeals were
spurned. Later, in the next quar

Wliat Is the Honors System?
Few Oregon Students Really Understand What
University Has Done for Their Benefit
(Editorial note: Tins is the sor
did of a short series of articles ex-,
plaining tlio idea, organization, aims
and possibilities of the “honors
system” now established in the
university. This article shows in
detail the organization of the
“To do is easy; to think is hard.”
This statement of Goethe’s is the
premise upon which the work for
honors as provided under the new
arrangements of the honors council
of the faculty is organized. Class
room work, involving the doing of
assigned tasks is easy. To think
out independently the problems ar
signed in certain lines of endeavor
is hard. The latter type of work
is reserved only for those who arc
elected and who elect to do honors
As a challenge to students of
high intellect and special talent
who feel that the regular work in
course is too highly standardized or
too superficial to act as a spur to
their ambition, tbe university has
introduced the degree of bachelor
' of arts with honors and tho degree
of bachelor of science with honors.
The instruction of honor students is
largely individual, the aim being to
stimulate wide reading, thorough
scholarship, and original or creative
work on the part of superior stu
dents. The realization of this aim
i involves increased effort on the
part of the honor student as well
I as a relaxation of requirements
which apply to students in general.
A perusal of the regulations gov
erning honor work will show that
greater responsibility is united to
, greater freedom.
Organization Outlined
The general regulations for a de
gree with honors in a subject or
related subjects at Oregon are as
follows: (In addition to these gen
eral regulations, there are two al
ternative types of honors work
honors with a thesis, and general
. honors,, which will be explained at
an early date).

in a single subject or in related
subjects. Approximately the higli

Faculty Says ‘No*
But Oregon Spirit
Instigates Rally
Parade Disrupts Classes
As Victory-mad Students
Serpentine the Campus
“No. Tliore will bo no holiday
Moncliiy. Clr.saes will bo bcbl ns
Such was the faculty edict, to
enthusiastic Oregon fans, violently
aroused by the decisive defeat of
the Oregon Aggies at. Corvallis Sat
urday afternoon.
But Oregon Spirit, when it is run
ning high, is. not to bo denied by
such comparatively unimportant
tilings as faculty rulings. At eight
o’clock yesterday morning a few
students began an impromptu but
short-lived rally in the vicinity of
the Commerce building, at nine
o’clock and again at ten attempts
were made again, but vea the ma
jority of the students chose, to hold
their exhuberanee in check and to
attend classes.
But. at eleven o’clock the Oregon
Spirit was no longer to be held
back. Again a serpentine started at
the Commerce building with the
familiar “Oregon! Oregon! Bah, rah,
Oregon!” There were about twenty
five men at the beginning, but by
the time the parade reached the li
brary the number had doubled. On
toward Villard it went, gaining a
few members every step.
With much yelling and stamping
of feet tho serpentine wended its
way through the hallway of Villard,
disrupting the English classes in
tliet building. Back it came, and
through the ancient hallway of
Deady, its personnel numbering in
hundreds by now. From time to
time the chant changed. Now it was
“Bah, rah, Oregon, now we’ve got
the Habit,” now “Hail, Hail, the
Gang’s All Here,” and now “To Hell
with O. A. C.”
Back down Thirteenth they came,
through the Commerce building, then
Oregon, and then Condon, then back
up to Johnson.
Before the Administration the
voicerfous parade would up, now
with the cry “We want a holiday.”
“Squeak” Parks, yell leader, appear
ed on the steps with the statement
that there would be no holiday and
the suggestion that the rooters work
their excess of spirits by participat
ing in a few Oregon yells.
The varsity yell, tho team yell,
and others resounded over the cam
pus, but still the Oregon Spirit
was not satisfied. Again the ser
pentine formed, this time down the

| Chrysanthemum Sale
Progresses Rapidly
Alumni To Receive ‘Mum’
On Return To Campus
The sale of the big creamy color
ed chrysanthemums for homecoming
is going steadily foreward under
the auspices of the Women’s league.
Emmabelle Woodworth, who is in
charge of the sales, says, “I feel
that the campus is going to res
pond to it because everyone is in
terested and everyone seems will
ing to give the Women’s league
his best support.”
Gracia Haggerty and Laura Mae
Bryant are the assistants on the
sales committee. One student from
each house has been appointed to
take orders for the flowers which
the league is handling on a com
mission basis.
This year the “mums” are in
charge of a florist, insuring good
flowers at 50 cents apiece, 75 cents
for those having the green “O” in
the center. One of the things plan
ned by some of the houses for their
alumni, “Home to Honor Oregon,”
is the presentation of one big green
and lemon chrysanthemum.

Phi Delts Drop
Crucial Game to
Independent Men
A. B. C. Defeats Kappa
Sag Basketball Team
For Crown of League
The Independents punctured the
Phi Dolt’s aspiration for the intr.n
niuriil crown when they threshed
through them for the close score, of
11-to-1U, yesterday afternoon.
A minute after the game started
Teague, guard for the Independents,
was fouled and he converted the
first point from the black line.
Fletcher, Phi Melt center, dribbled
through for the first basket of the
contest. Playing a, five-man de
fense to an admirable turn the win
ners staved off the Phi Pelt at
tacks and by the end of the first
quarter led by a 4-to-l2 score.
Both teams were shoving the ball
till over the floor. Addison, Inde
pendent guard, swished the baskets
with beautiful shots and broke up
many plays of the opponents. The
Phi Dolt’s plays were working like
a million; they were coining
through. Score at the end of the
half was 6-up.
Local Men Play
The Independents’ team is com
posed of Eugene and University
high school men. Burt and Moore
come from University high and
Murray, Teague, and Addison from
Eugene. Murray sunk the first
basket in the second half. Addison
was checking his head off. As the
whistle blew for the close of the
third quarter the book read Inde
pendents, 10; Phi Dolts, 8.
Now began the hottest conflict pf
Iho afternoon. Eberliart, referee,
centered the ball. I’hi Dolts got
the tip-off. The Independents
wrested Iho basketball away from
them. Murray lobbed in a keen
shot. Phi Dolts got the tip-off
again; they worked the ball in;

Fernando Germani. But anyone
would have known that who had

I achieved a most remarkable facility
in arpeggio and runs with feet that
were as accurate and swift as
