Doc Spears Not Gloomy Over Final Outcome of Drake Tilt By JACKSON BURKE Although the papers of the Pa l cific coast have heralded Doc f Spears as the logical man to bear the moaning title, once held by Gloomy Gus Henderson, one-time coach at Southern California, in > an interview prior to the depait ure of the Webfoot mentor and team for Chicago last Sunday, in dications were that the genial doc tor is not half as bad as all tha1'. Spears stated that the strength of the Drake team is an unknown ) quantity due to their not having played any games this year and he did not know just how strong the Webfoots would be in relation ‘o the eastern school. As to the strength of the Ore on team Spears was more defin f e. They are big. according to the f*ew coach, and if they can use I neir stee and strength in the man i^-‘r he is trying to teach them, they will get along all right. When asked how he felt about the inauguration of night football Spears was silent, giving his opin ion neither for nor against the night game. The spirit manifested by the students at the Willamette game is hoped to be a forerunner of even greater manifestations, ac cording to the coach, who stressed the importance of this phase of football, saying its importance cannot be overestimated. This year’s meeting with the Drake Bulldogs is not the first for the new Oregon coach as late in the fall of 1927 the big Minne sota team coached by the same Spears crashed through the Des Moines team for a 27 to 6 win. However, this game was played the year that the Minnesota team made Grange and the Illini look (Continued on Page Fire) Frosh Assembly Scheduled for Fleven Today New Tradition A<l«lecl as First ‘Welcome Meet’ Gathers at Igloo Dean Straub Unable To Greet Frosh Class for First Time in Years To the strains of a concert march played by the University band freshmen, students will file onto the main floor of McArthur court this morning at 11 o’clock and sit in a section to attend the first assembly of the year, and the one which is planned particu larly for them. In another reserved section will sit members of the faculty, with still another section marked off for sophomores and upperclass men. The freshman welcoming as sembly has been added to Oregon’s traditions. Several years ago the administration of the University was petitioned by the students to have an assembly at the first of the year to welcome the new stu dents. All 11 o’clock classes are dismissed. The invocation will be given by Rev. Max Adams, student pastor. There will be another concert number by the band, which is to be on the speakers’ platform. Fol lowing this George Cherry, presi dent of the A. S. U. O., will be in troduced, and will give an address of welcome to the new students especially. Frank Jenkins, editor of the Eu gene Register and former presi dent of the chamber of commerce, will represent that body in the ab sence of Roy Booth, present chief, and will speak on behalf of the chamber and the citizens of Eu gene. Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, presi dent of the University, will give the principal address of the assem bly. The first convocation of the year will close with the traditional march, “Mighty Oregon.’’ which will be played by the band as the students file out of the court. Members of the faculty who are on the program will be in academ ic costume on the speakers’ plat form. Oregon Knights will usher and appear in uniform. Dean James H. Gilbert, dean of the college of literature, science, and the arts, will preside at the assembly in the place of Dean Emeritus John Straub, who tradi tionally has had this duty, but who is prevented from appearing this year because of illness. The freshman week committee, consisting of Karl. W. On thank, dean of personnel, Hugh Biggs, dean of men, Mrs. Hazel Pruts man Schwering, dean of women, and Earl M. Pallett, registrar and executive secretary, have made all arrangements for the assembly.

Hodge, of the geology department, complet ed his study of the Central Oregon region, and the topographic map published last spring will be sup plemented with extensive geologi cal and mineralogical data. The map, which has occupied Dr. Hodge for a number of years, will reveal the region’s natural re sources in map form for the first time. The University professor’s party reached the summit of Lookout mountain, east of the Three Sis ters, in an automobile, continuing his list of alpine conquests, which includes the climbing of Maiden Peak, and of the slope leading to the Timber Line cabin on Mt.

Trio Back From Long Trek This team, composed of Bob Miller, assistant chairman of the Greater Oregon committee, Joe Freck, chairman, and George Cherry, president of the student body, has travelled all over the state this summer, conferring with Dads’ Day representatives, Oregon Mothers' groups, and prospective students. The large enrollment of freshmen, and the interest being evidenced in Dads’ and Mothers’ day this year is tribute to their work.

Variety Planned By Mrs. Seybolt For Year’s PJays Lack of Melodrama in Past Causes Director To List That Type Fall Enrollment Exceeds Former Records The drama division, as in the past, opens this fall term with an increase in enrollment. A num ber of the former leading players have returned to the Guild Hall Players group, and some promis ing new actors are evident in the class in technique of acting. Mrs. Seybolt, director of the drama division, is planning a var ied and interesting program of plays for the year. The season will open with a Grand Guignol production, a bill of horror plays. “We have had very little melo drama during the last two years,” said Mrs. Seybolt, "and it seems time to remember that that is one of the legitimate forms of enter tainment.” “The Man Without a Head” is the title of a play which has the possibility of many thrills. The recent plays under consider ation for this year’s series are: “Holiday,” “Journey’s End,’’ “Berkeley Square,” and “Death Takes a Holiday.” All are out standing plays of last season in New York. One or more of these will probably be played during the year, depending upon their release for amateur production. Other plays will be chosen a little later from the works of Ibsen, or Shaw. Later on the Studio Players mat inees will be resumed, but no def inite date has yet been set. Try outs for parts in this series of pro ductions will be open to the entire campus. Anyone wishing to try out for parts is cordially invited to do so. Debate Outlook Good, Says Forensic Coach With all but one of last year’s varsity debaters and orators back I on the campus this year, the out ! look in the forensics is very good ' this year,' according to Walter E. Hempstead, Jr., assistant debate | coach. j Among those who are ready to I answer the call for debaters are: ] Errol Sloan, Robert Miller, Arthur j Potwin, Walter Evans, Roger | Pfaff, and Hobart Wilson. Eugene Laird, who was the only \ delator lost last year, is now working as an assistant in the of fice of the speech division of the English department. Hobart Wilson is general foren sics manager this year, and will soon announce the other members of the managerial staff. Football Tilt With Violets Set for 1931 Game with N. Y. Team Is Scheduled for October In Eastrn City Manhattan Team Desires Revenue for Loss to Beavers Oregon will play the 'lew York university tootball team next Oc tober in New York, according to a wire received from Sam Wilder man, publicity director of the As sociated Students, who is now in Chicago handling the publicity of the Drake-Oregon game. Arrangements for the game which will be played in the eastern city October 31, 1931, were con cluded yesterday by Hugh Rossen, graduate manager of the Univer sity, and A. B. Nixon, as a repre sentative of the New York uni versity. Meet in Chicago Rossen had gone east to handle the business of the football team in Chicago and a meeting was ar ranged with Nixon in the hopes that some arrangement could be made whereby the game could be played. The game will bring together two representative elevens and is expected to be a strong drawing card, one of the strongest of next season’s schedule. N. Y. U. was one of the leading teams of the East last year and the year before was considered to be the strongest team in the East until “Josh Oregon,” as the New York papers characterized the Oregon State Beaver team, came unheralded and trod the Violet to the earth in the most crushing defeat they had suffered in many years. N. Y. U. Have Grudge They haven’t forgotten this de feat and its resulting notoriety in the Manhattan college and it is assured that careful guarding of the Violets will ensue lest the Ore gon team repeat the “trodding.” Coach Meehan of the Violet team has had a consistent team for many years and has contrib uted many stars to All-American elevens. The latest of these stars was A1 Lassman, big tackle, who was rated as one of the strongest linemen of many years until an injury removed him fror^ competi tion. Will Arrive Friday With this important intersec tional game already on its 1931 schedule the Oregon team, under the direction of Doc Spears, has an added incentive for a good 1930 season. The reputation of the Webfoots in New York is based on the fact that in 1929 they tied with California, Stanford, and Southern California for the Pacific Coast title. The wire from Wilderman con tinues, saying that the Oregon team will arrive in Chicago the day of the game, after stops made in Pocatello, Idaho, Monday; Den ver on Tuesday, and today at Omaha. Oregon Players Gain Contracts Robie and Wirtli Receive Baseball Berths Two other athletes received rec ognition yesterday when it became assured that Ken “Rabbitt’ Robie and Charles “Chuck” Wirth had been tendered contracts with teams of the Pacific Coast base ball league. Robie who was captain of the Webfoot nine last spring has signed with the Oakland team and will in all probability be used in the winter league in California. Wirth has been given a contract with the San Francisco Seals, which team will in all probability “farm” him out under contract to a smaller circuit where he can gain additional experience. Wirth was assured of second base on the Webfoot nine last year but was declared ineligible before the sea son opened. Both he and Robie were mainstays of the Eugene town team last season. Poor Dean Makes Funny Faux Pas Dean Carpenter of the law school has a story to tell on himself. He was talking with a strang er who had inquired for Pro fessor Morse. “Oh,” he said, thoughtfully, “Professor Morse has been in the state penitentiary for near ly a week—” “What did you say?” inter rupted the stranger, with a startled expression. The dean was forced to ex plain that Mr. Morse was spend ing a week from September 15 to 2-J in the state penitentiary as a member of the Oregon Crime Survey of Oregon Penal Institutions. Oregon Women To Take Part In Football Rally Feminine Enthusiasm Will Characterize New Plan Change B. Mimnaugh Is To Head Rally Committee “Pep! Noise! Enthusiasm! And any other adjectives you may think of will characterize the Ore gon loot Dan ral lies this year,” . says Brian Mim n a u g h, new chairman of the rally committee. The committee has been almost completely reor gan i z e d, and | when it is com ; plete will be one ! of the strongest 1 in recent years. Under the new Brian regime the co Min,naugh eds haye a yery definite place in all rallies, and the committee is planning special and varied features for the women of Oregon. “Just now,” said Mimnaugh, “we are bending all our energy toward the Washington game in Portland. We are going to show that town such a rally as it has never before seen. “On the evening before the game we are planning to radio rally with “Slug” Palmer in charge; later that evening, at one of the big theaters, a big rally will take place with acts and music by the talent of the University, band numbers, and yells. “On the day of the game there will be a short rally in front of one of the hotels followed by a serpentine to the field. We want the co-eds to follow the serpentine in cars and make all the ‘whoo pee’ possible. We are making plans for plenty of noise al3o. We want fire trucks, police wagons, sirens, bells, in fact, anything that will make noise. We want to make Portland a football town. Just now it is on the border line, and this year we want to swing it over. Enthusiasm, pep, and drive will do it.” Sigma Kappa Heads Grade List of Houses Sorority Averages More Than 58 Points During Spring Term Sigma Alpha Mu Leads Men With 48 Points To Set Year’s Mark Sigma Kappa, winner of the scholarship cup offered by Curt Brown Barker, vice-president of the University, for spring fall and winter terms of 1929, again heads the spring term grade list for 1930 with a 58 point average.

Mr. Barker spent a great deal of his time in Europe observing the student life in important edu cational centers, among which <X*ere Paris and Heidelburg. Both 3ermany and France are begin ning to realize the value of hav ing universities that will draw stu dents from all over the world, he said. The University of Paris re cently has been granted a large section of land just outside the old fortification of the city. Here it a encouraging different nations fo erect student houses and to date nearly a dozen countries, such as the United States, Canada, Ar gentine, Armenia, and Belgium have erected buildings. Mr. Earker was also in Ger many just before the election, and people there, especially in the southern part of the country, are taking a keen interest in national politics. The election was a step toward saving the country from Bolshevism rather than plunging it into such a state, as many peo ple believe, Mr. Barker said. People of Germany are working hard to recover from the war and making an especially strong bid to attract tourists and travellers from other countries, Mr. Barker continued, and Germany is actual ly gaining many of them who here tofore spent much of their time in France and other countries. Mr. Barker also spent some time j in research in early church his j tory while in Germany, and made ; several important discov e r i e s 1 which he plans to make public : later.
