Dean Rebec Tells
Important Change
Rhodes Provisions Give
New Option
An important change in the
Rhodes Scholarships provisions has
been announced from the office
of Dean George Rebec.
This affects the students’ stay
at Oxford. Students are now al
lowed the option of spending their
third year at Oxford or any other
university in the world (outside
their native country) which may
be best for the prosecution of their
studies. They will further be al
lowed the option of taking their
third year immediately at the end
of their first two or after a period
of some year’s work in the United
States, as they prefer.
Applications are due October 18,
but the University will select its
candidates before October 11.
Doc Spears Not Gloomy Over
Final Outcome of Drake Tilt
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

Moines team for a 27 to 6 win.

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
“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.

Hempstead, Jr., assistant debate

j Among those who are ready to
I answer the call for debaters are:
] Errol Sloan, Robert Miller, Arthur

Arrangements for the game
which will be played in the eastern

With this important intersec

schedule the Oregon team, under
the direction of Doc Spears, has
an added incentive for a good 1930
season. The reputation of the

on the fact that in 1929 they tied
with California, Stanford, and
Southern California for the Pacific
Coast title.

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.

“On the day of the game there

Barker Returns From Europe;
Observed Student Life There
Students may live for less than
$1 a day in the student centers
near Paris, declared Burt Brown
Barker, vice-president of the Uni
versity, who with Mrs. Barker and
.heir daughter, Barbara, returned
to Eugene this week from a sum
mer spent abroad.
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.
