Edwards, Former Aggie, j
To Meet Oregon Again i
Otto Klum and liis University of
Hawaii football plovers are eagerly
awaiting 1 lie arrival of the Univer
sity of Oregon team in the islands,
according to press dispatches re
ceived on the campus. The col
legians have not had an overly suc
cessful season and are working hard
to he in shape to win over the V^'olt
foots. A win New Year’s day
would turn the season into a fairly
^ successful one for the former Med
ford high coach.
After playing some of the smaller
college teams in the islands, the
Roaring Rainbows, as they are
called, tackled the Honolulu town
team and tasted defeat, .'19-20. It
was just a case of the former col
lege stars being too good for the
Hawaiian col legions.
Points to Oregon
However, this defeat has taken
none of the vigor out of the work
outs of the Rainbows and Klum is
pointing his men for the Oregon
game. This is evidenced by the
fact that he has compelled every
man on the squad to sign a pledge
to faithfully train for the game.
Ordinarily, due to the long season
in Hawaii, the college team does not
train as faithfully as the mainland
varsity squads.
The Hawaiian grid mentor has
been handicapped by in juries to liis
star players all season and he is
working to have every man in con
dition to play against the Webfoots.
It will be a gala crowd at the game,
if attendance at previous New
V Year’s games can be taken as an
estimate. It was estimated that
.‘10,000 paid admissions were in the
stands of the huge new Honolulu
stadium last year. Football is the
biggest sport in the islands and it
is not unusual for a high school
game to draw Id,000 people.
Aggie Is Head Man
The Honolulu town team is led by
“Web” Edwards, former Oregon
Aggie quarterback. lie is just as
flashy now as he was a few years
back and will be opposing the Ore
gon varsity gridders for the fourth
time. The town team has had a
fairly successful season, losing only
to the Olympic club, of San Fran
cisco, by a score of 4 -0.
The game was played on Decem
ber 1 and since then the townie
coach, “Scotty” Rchuman, has had
his charges out daily practicing for

| Christmas Carols To
Add To Yuletide Spirit
Y. W. C. A. Sponsors Start
Of English Custom Here
Ono of tlio most cherished of old
English customs will make its first
appearance at Oregon Sunday niglit
| when several groups of students will
i serenade tlie ranipus with Christinas
! carols.
Although the idea is being spon
! sored by the V. \V. (’. A., any stu
j dent, man or woman, who wishes to
i do so may join the singers. Mar
garet Lee Slesher, who is in charge
iif the arrangements, has announced
a short song practice which will be
held Friday afternoon at five o'clock
in the Y. \V. Bungalow'. She urged
particularly that all students who
were interested in the idea should
be there.
The Y. AY. 0. A. vesper choir is
I to form the nucleus of the singers,
and they with other students who
volunteer, will be divided into
groups of about eight. Each group
will cover a certain district, sing
ing not to individual houses but to
several at a time. Lenders for these
groups will be chosen Friday at the
song practice.
To make the singing of carols at
Christmas time a tradition at Ore
gon is the aim of those who orig
inated the idea. Other! colleges,
particularly eastern ones, have this
custom; and many feel that it would
be a distinct addition to our campus
"It is a lovely custom to start
provided that it is handled in an
appropriate manner,” declared Miss
Hazel Prutsman, dean of women. |
The singing of carols will start I
I about nine thirty Sunday evening1
and will last until ten thirty.
Songs which are to be sung in
clude: ‘‘llark, the Herald Angels
Sing,” “Joy to the World,”-“Oh,
Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Oh,
All Ye Faithful,” “First
and “Silent Night.”

California's Schools Hold Whip
Hand on Coast, Says Prof. Howe
“California schools do not sooth
to take tlio conference very sorious- j
Iv,” said Professor IT. ('. Howe, |
Oregon’s faculty representative at
the Pacific coast athletic conference I
at Los Angeles recently. ‘‘It does- I
n’t seem as important as it did 10 j
years ago. The California schools
made the conference wait four days
for them and then didn’t show up
until the next day. After we did
meet, the graduate manager of
Southern California had gone East
on more urgent business.”
“They have a ‘Pig Four’ agree
ment of Stanford, Washington, Uni
versity of California, and P. S. C.,”
continued Professor Howe, “and
have arranged to take up the three
best places on their schedule with
each other for the next five years.”
The Oregon representative de
clared further that every one of
these schools has signed up inter
sectional games next year. Stanford
plays the Army again, Washington
is scheduled with the Chicago t'ni
varsity, California moots the TTni
vorsitv of Pennsylvania, ami South
ern California plays Notre Dauio.
All of those games take a week at
tiie least, ami the Northwest, con
ference schools are gently excluded.
It leaves them all in a bad shape
financially, as no teams that draw
can lie scheduled. Oregon especially
is getting a bad deal, he thinks.
‘‘Southern Cal said they couldn’t
give us a game the first of the sea
son because other northern teams
had the preference,” he continued,
“and they wouldn’t give us one at
the last because they didn’t want to
plav sm'h a strong team after play
ing Notre Dame.”
Stanford seems the most friendly
of all the California schools to Ore
gon, remarked Howe, but he added
that they take us very seriously, and
don’t rashly schedule games later in
the season. Oregon plays Stanford
Oct. .1. All California schools give
St. Mary’s preference over Oregon,
