of the faculty members, and of all
administrative officers. House and
dormitory phone numbers are also

Men's Employment Director Is
Gratified by Success of Work
“The greatest joy of my work
is when a student comes in and
tells me that he has but a few
dollars on which to go to school,
and I am able to place him in a
position to get his education,”
said Mrs. Charlotte Donnelly, sec
retary of housing and employment
for men, with headquarters at the
University Y. M. C. A. “Some
times, but not often, a little en
couragement from the office is
necessary. I have in mind no fail
ures of our men who have worked
their way through the university.
When they are out of college they
are ready to meet the world, and
are always successful.”
Mrs. Donnelly has been at the
Campus Y. M. C. A. for nine
years, coming from Worcester col
lege, Ohio, after the war, that she
might be near her son Harold,
who was then employed at the
Y. M. C. A. as secretary and as
student secretary for Oregon and
Idaho. This necessitated his be
ing out of the office much of the
time, and Mrs. Donnelly begged
him to let her come and answer
the telephone. The idle life of
staying at home was irksome to
her, and she was glad to do some
thing. The advisory board asked
her to stay, that the Y. M. C. A.
might have the influence of a
woman in the Hut. “There was
little pay, then, and I had no
helper. At the end of the year

Huskies Doomed

tle.— (P.I.P.)—With their last
bQpe of establishing themselves as

coast smashed in a 20 to 13 de
feat by the Washington State Cou
gars at Pullman last week, the
University of Washington Huskies

sadly the under-dogs for the com
ing game with Oregon here next
For the second successive week
the Huskies have taken a confer
ence beating and their stock has
sunk in proportion. On the other
hand Oregon pounded Idaho’s
famed squad for a 34-7 victory last
Saturday and they assumed there
by a commanding position among
northwest schools.
Due to the fact that they took
another hard drubbing before they
had fully recovered from the one
administered by U. S. C., the Hus
kies will face the Webfooters prob
ably lower in physical condition
than at any time this season. Two
of the men, Walt Sahli, and Bill
Mittlestedt, quarter, sustained in
juries that will likely keep them
out of the tilt altogether.
Yet though the situation may be
mighty black for either team tra
dition boosts this game into the
limelight—the tense rivalry be
tween the two schools has caused
so many upsets in the past that
no game between the two is won
until the final whistle blows.

Oregon’s Grid Captain Youthful Star
Injury Ends Geo. Stadelman’s Football Career
Captain Dave Mason, right half
back on Oregon’s football team,
has toted a football a good deal
of his life. He is finishing a col
orful career this year that started
back on the vacant lots of Albany
when he was still going to gram
mar school.
Few kids on the vacant lots
grow up to captain a college var
sity, but about every one of them
has dreams of doing it.
Dave was born in 1908, and Al
bany is his home town. For three
years he played football for Al
bany high as both quarter and
halfback. In the fall of ’26 he
came to Oregon and made the
frosh team. In the two following
years, despite unlucky accidents,
he played enough on the varsity
to make his letters.
It is because Dave has natural
football ability coupled with a very
likeable personality that he is cap
taining this year, what some say
is the greatest football team Ore
gon has ever had.
The name George Stadelman
will go down in Oregon’s hall of
fame as one of the greatest cen
ters ever to wear the lemon and
George has had about the tough
est luck a football man can have.

well as to attract all-American
mention and getting all set for hi3
biggest year of all, a broken leg
