A Homecoming Saturnalia?
nPTCN YEARS ago today Oregon’s mighty fool ha 11 eleven trot
A led out on their new gridiron, wliicli was dedicate! tliat
day to Hill I lay ward, and led by iiill Steers and “Sheet'
Manenul carried ti.e fight to the Aggies from Corvallis, win
ning 9-0 on a touchdown by Hollis Hunt ingtou and a place
kick by Manerud.
That same Ilmneeominy was lighted by a d-1 victory over
the Aggies in soccer and a triumph in the cross-country run.
Today marks the opening of another Homecoming week-end.
The 12,000 spectators at the “civil war” in 1919 will be re
placed by 2.".000 in 1929. Changes have come over the campus.
Hut the spirit of Honwcominr: remains the same. Tin* lliril! of
the “hi" "ame” with the trailitional antagonists will always he
the song of the simis which brings hark Ihe old grads, to see
their Alma Mater in athletic strife.
They do the same tilings today as ten years ago to cel brnte
this Homecoming. There is the fiosh bonfire, the cross-count n
meet. Homecoming dances. Ihe .jazz, parade, the reunions of tin
athletic stars and student lenders of yesterday.
The saturnalia of college reunions and homecomings Inn
been the target of caustic censure, especially in the east and
in the more nietiopolitan centers where aleolioii m is more
Hut before jaundiced eyes are east upon the practice, the
*8eei must also take into account the fact that today the liqao'
problem of college is simply the liquor problem of the iiaiion
Drunken alumni are as much out of place on the campus as
they would he in any self-respecting home. Drunken under
graduates are a rare sight.
The spirit of Homecoming is over it all. The noise and
confusion, the rush for ticket:;, the campus luncheon. Ihe rallies,
old friend meeting old friend, the “big game.” Such angles
of a commendable lloim coming compIetrL submerge and min
imize Ihe small, personal side of the celebration which is rep
resented in alcoholism and which is raised to disproportionate
size and importance by publicity.
Beinft a University’s President
A LTj THAT tin1 president of the University has to do is to

countryside, manage the machinery of his million dollar Indus

on their toes, understand the progress of the University's

student groups, attend the athletic contests, lunch with the
rich alumni who might dedicate new buildings for some distant
relative!, keep in touch with the legislators down at Salem and
with the board of higher education, help solve problems of the

the library with nine photographs
of petrographs, all of which are

near Roosevelt, Washington. These

of each of the Indian writings,
which, Mr. Conway says, was
purely imaginative but which had
been gleaned from bureau of eth
The pictures were interpreted
as depicting stories of a hunting

Tidbits Picked Up By
The Varsity Parrot
Moat co-eds have found that
a new chapeau is a wonder
ful cure for those “Out-of
Style Blues.” Come in to
I-eiilia Abrams, m xt to the
First National Bank, and
pick out one of those ador
able off-the-f.iee models.
Don’t Be Just
The Green and Yellow Par
rot insists that there's noth

ture to prove the old adage
that "absence makes the
heart grow fonder.” Come
in to Romano's, over J. C.
Penney’s, and order some of
those life-like pictures that
everyone has been talking
about. They make wonder
ful Chiistmas presents, and
it's not a bit too early to
I start thinking about that.

Our Greer, and Yellow Parrot liar, had an exciting1 week keeping
up with all the “dope" that he knows is floating around the

For Campus Wear
Most of our campus maidens
find it rather hard to always
have something to wear to
classes, aad so according to
the Varsity Parrot the thing
to do is to find an inexpen
sive dress that will fill in.
At Kafoury's Department
Store, 61 East Broadway,
there are clever informal
dresses for only $6 So—a
sale of month-end stocks of
more expensive apparel.
To Enhance Your Frock
Dainty lacy bits of jewelry—sparkling
necklaces that have a charm all their
own and with a frock that you are just
a little tired of - it's like a breach of
elixir to revive them. At Danymore and
Leonard, next to the McDonald theatre,
there are some of ) he prettiest pieces
of costume jewelry that you can find.
One of the most exciting
things that the Parrot has
discovered is that a great

their Christmas cards, and

knows that the kind that he
