Oregon Team
Starts Jaunt
To Hawaii
Web foots Leave Eugene
This Noon on Shasta;
Will Sail From Frisco
Twenty-two Oregon football play
ers ami their bathing* suits leave
Eugene, this noon on the first lap
of the Hawaiian expedition. Sport
ing goods dealers of the eity re
port an enormous mid-winter de
mand for swimming outfits which
far exceeds the summer business.
The music stores predict a complete
sell-out of ukeleles before the south
bound Shasta pulls out.
The Webfoots play two games in
the Islands. They meet, the Hono
lulu town team on Christmas day
and the University of Hawaii on
New Year’s Day. The Islanders,
due chiefly to climatic conditions,
are doped to defeat the Oregonians.
The Olympic, club of San Francisco
already defeated the town team,
but. the university team trounced
Occidental college of Los Angeles
last Saturday, "2 to (1.
The strength of the substitutes
will be a deciding factor in Ore
gon's success at Hawaii. The warm,
sticky climate is highly enervating
to newcomers. The team which
spends itself in the early part of
the game usually finds things pretty
tough toward the end.
* * *
The Webfoots officially end the
football season of 1920 with the Ore
gon Aggie game November l(i. Who
ever heard of a team finishing its
season so early. Intersectional
tilts have extended the peak of the
football season into December. Ore
gon will be quitting just as foot
ball reaches its greatest interest.
The demand for intersectional
games has made them almost indis
pensible to the popularity and fame
of an institution. The superiority
of football in the West boost Pacific
coast teams power to draw crowds
in other sections of the country.
Oregon, the leading team of the
Northwest with a strong champion
ship contender coming up for next
season, would be a desirable team
for an inter-sectional battle.
Oregon is after a game, but the
difficulty is in edging into the
schedule of a strong eastern team.
All the teams must give their con
ference rivals some preference, and
the dates Oregon has open conflict
with the dates of many of the
eastern teams.
The Webfoots’ sudden advance
ment in the football world did not
assist them in arranging the con
ference schedule this year. Most
of the powerful southern teams
avoided the Webfoots, fearing, per
Ih.ops, the likeliness of a defeat.
Oregon’s schedule is not a set-up
by any means, but it is not diffi
cult one for a strong team. The
Stanford game coming October 5
probably will be the hardest one of
the year.
Should Oregon go through its
schedule next year without a de
feat, the southern teams may com
plain that the Webfoots did not
play the best teams of the confer
^ enco. It was the southerners, how
ever, who refused to play the Web
* * *
A permanent inter-sectional game
is an asset. The Oregon Aggies
have been placed on the schedule
of New York university again.
When the Beavers go east next
Thanksgiving day, the Yankee
Stadium will not be large enough
to hold the crowds. The Army
Stanfcrd game has become a nation
al affair just as the Notre Dame

Cooperate With Class
In Presenting Comedy
Cast Includes Nine
Experienced Actors
Constance Rotli Directs;
Tickets 50c and 75c
Tim curtain rises at 8:15 tonight,
wlmu ‘"Pigs” starts its way through
three a -ts of what everyone who
has looked in on the rehearsals or
seen the actors in previous dramas
says is the best, of entertainment.
‘‘Pigs,” presented by the National
Collegiate Players and the senior
class, plays at the lleilig theater
Paul Roueher says that anyone
who hasn’t already bought tickets
from house representatives can get
them at the theater, by going early.
Tickets are 50 and 75 cents, all
seats reserved.
Veterans Acting
Larry Shaw, Grace Gardner, Hugh
Logan, Glenn Potts, Milton George,
Constance Roth, Diana Deininger,
Edwards Merges, and Helen Allen
comprise the cast. All but two are
seniors, and veterans at the theater
art; Grace Gardner, as Mildred
Cashing, and Lawrence Shaw, as
Thomas Atkins Jr., are playing op
posite each other for the third or
fourth time in Guild hall plays.
Their trials and tribulations with
the sick pigs they purchase promise
fun for both the audience and the
actors—of course the pigs recover
and prove a fine source of remuner
ation for Thomas, .Tr., and Mildred.
The National Collegiate Players,
of which Mask and Buskin is the
local chapter, cooperates with the
senior class in staging the play.
Last year they played “Patsy,”
with Alpha Delta Sigma; the cast
of the play tonight is much the
same as the one which played the
“Patsy” last year.

Constance Roth, graduate assist
ant in drama, -is directing the play.
Hugh Logan plays Spencer Atkins;
Glenn Potts, Mr,' Hastings; Helen
Allen, Lenore Hastings; Milton

Roth, Grandma Spencer; Grace
Gardner, Mildred Cushing; Law

and Diana Deininger, Ellen Atkins.
The play, written by Anno Mor
rison and Patterson McNutt, was
played by the Henry Duffy players
in Portland last year.
Miss Prutsman, acting dean of
women, lias granted late permission
to all upperclass women, and to
freshman women with the consent
of house presidents.

Freshman Team Wins
Volley Ball Honors
The second all star team in intra
mural volley ball trounced the first
all star opposition in a one sided
game 51 to 35 last Friday afternoon.
By this victory they captured the
mythical all star championship of
the university.
The freshman first team, however,
scored the highest average for all
classes. Members who composed it
were: Juanita Young, Ella Redkey,
Dorothy Goff, Lucille Murray and
Ruby Williams.
Two third teams, the sophomore
third and the junior third, will play
off their tie todav at 5 o’clock.
Bill HaywardToo Hopes for Best
As Examination Time Approaches
Students are not the only ones;
closing their eyes for the bumps
next week. In some of the offices
of McArthur court are men with
^ their eves shut just as tightly.
For the first time in several years,
Bill Hayward has a track team
which is actually .pointing in the l
general direction of a Northwest
championship. There is a real pos
sibility that Oregon will win the
Northwest conference meet on Hay
ward field next spring.
The team certainly looks good on
paper—now. But whether or not it
will look good on paper next term
in a sense other than a flock of
paper weights would look, depends
largely on a few dingey hours next
week. Bill is doing everything he
can to encourage his men in their
studies. His greeting is:
“Hello, bov, how are your stu
There are only a scant dozen or
so frosh out for track at present,
but Bill knows that there will be
75 or 100 of them out next spring.
Thwsad part of it is, says Bill, that
there are going to be a lot of dis
appointed freshmen, because most of
them will not have built the neces
sary foundation into themselves. The
varsity will suffer next year, be
cause many potentially good men
will become discouraged, and dis
continue track for some other sport
which they are not so well fitted.
He explains that while basketball,
which is taking its toll of track
material at this time, does not do
much harm to weight men, it is very
bad for runners.
When a good basketball man
chooses basketball instead of track
for his winter’s work. Bill does not
complain. But when a fair track
prospect is out-classed in basketball
and wastes his time with it; then
Bill avers that something is wrong.

A current issue of “Japan,”
travel magazine edited )>v James
King Steele, contains tlie last of a
series of tluee articles by Jack
Hempstead called “Student. Tour

40,000 Miles Around tlie World.”
During tlie world tour of the'Ore
gon debate team, Hempstead, Mc
Croskey, and Thompson wrote about
their trip for newspapers and per
iodicals. Besides contributing regu
larly to nine daily newspapers, they
wrote 11 articles which were print
ed in world-wide editions of the
Christian Monitor. These articles,
requested by the editor of the Moni
tor, treated their experiences in de
bating foreign students in the Eng
lish language from a sociological
point of view.
One of the other magazines in
which articles were printed was the
Movie Makers’ magazine, of New
York City. The three men took
about 7000 feet of motion pictures,
and four or five hundred photo
graphs while on their tour, and the
stories dealt with their amateur mo

‘Every ^ riter Musi Decide'’ Says Wetjen, One
Of Oregon's Novelists; Knows His Shipwrecks
“Every writer comes to that

Arts club Saturday evening and
cunt inued:
“Take my book, ‘The Way for a
Sailor.’ It cost me seven months
to write it, one hipidred dollars to
type it, and plenty: to my agents to
market it. The publishing house
will run out about five thousand
copies—that ’g the life of the aver
age novel—and that will only net
me about one thousand dollars.
That’s the price you have to pay
for art.

“ Most of tho Oregon writers have
fallen into this rut of ‘hack’ writ

effort to got out. If a man is giv
ing tho best that ho has, he has a
right, to work for the ‘pulps,’ but.
it is when he can do better and

“All ‘big sister’ captains abso

Melon Peters, head of the Big Sis

These reports concern the health,
the activities, the housing, the

"little sisters.”
“Some reports have already
come in,” Miss Peters said, “and
they are very, very favorable.
However, some of the ‘big sisters’

The Big Sister movement is di
vided into Id groups, each one under
the supervision of a captain.
The Women’s league aims to lend
a helping hand to every freshman.
That it has succeeded is borne out
by the statement of Pat Boyd, who
rotary of the freshman class, who
says, “It’s meant a lot to mo just
to know I have some one to go to
in case I need advice or anything.”

German Architecture
On Exhibit at U. S. C.
CALIFORNIA, Lrgs Angeles, Dec.
10.—(PIP)—An interesting group of
photographs dealing with notable
examples of German brickwork was
recently shown in the exhibition
room at the University of Southern
California. Heretofore, students of
architecture in their studies abroad
have devoted their time chiefly to
Italy, France, Holland and England.
That this remarkable brickwork of
north Germany is quite out of the
ordinary, both from the viewpoint
of craftsmanship and daring archi
tectural treatment, the exceptional
photographs of this exhibit clearly
establish. This group of photo
graphs is probably the most com
plete presentation of architecture in

Oregon Grads Invent Apparatus
For Identifying Fossil Signatures
Taking the signatures of creature.!
that lived ten million years or more
ago may sound impossible, but suel
is the purpose of a recently inventec
apparatus to be found in the offici
of Dr. E. L. Packard, professor ol
paleantliology. Mr. and Mrs. Italpl
L. Lupher, graduates of the geol
ogy department of the University
of Oregon in 1025 are the inventors
The machine is used to identify
fossil ammonites, which belong ti
the cephalopoda, the highest clus:
of mollusea. “Most fossils have bi(
names,” Dr. Packard apologized ii
explaining this fact. “The nmmon
ites bear on their shells their name
if we can only interpret them,” le
Ammonites, which resemble snail
in shape, lived in the outer par
of their shell, Dr. Packard explained
Every so often they built anothe
room to their shell, walling of
the preceding room in the process.
If this wall were straight the mark
ings on the outer shell would be
simple, but more often it was highly
irregular, thus making curious com
plex patterns on the shell resembling
frost traceries on a windowpane.
These peculiar markings upon the
outer walls of the ammonite shells
are termed sutures.
“No two genera have identical
' suture lines. Even the signatures
1 of no two species are absolutely
I the same,” Dr. Packard said. “If
1 we can only record or determine this
' suture, we can determine the name
1 of the ammonite.”
The question is how to record this
pattern on paper. Because the speci

ings cannot be photographed. In
