Band Boosters Back From
Northern "Pep” Journey
"A great trip!”
That’s what the 62 members of
the Oregon band who went to Seat
tle and Portland last week to
boost the stock of the Oregon
Washington game unite in saying,
and their words are echoed by ev
erybody else that went along, Con
ductor John Stehn, Band Manager
Don McCormick, Public-relations
Director Godfrey, Sam Wilderman,
Hugh Rosson, ‘‘Doc” Robnett, and
a hundred or more Portland busi
ness men, headed by Aaron Frank.
It wasn't any bed of roses for
the boys who tooted the horns, ac
cording to George Godfrey, but
they certainly helped out the cause
of their alma mater, even if some
of them did get bloody lips from
playing so much.
Arriving in Seattle early Friday
morning, they started the day out
by playing for the Seattle Break
fast club, and were very well re
ceived. During the morning they
paraded the streets, serenaded all
the newspaper offices and played
in several large department stores.
The high spot of the day was at
the chamber of commerce lunch
“That bunch of Seattle business
men gave our band nothing short
cf an ovation,” said Godfrey. "They
stood up on their feet and cheered.
In the early afternoon, the
bandsmen paraded through the

last night. ‘‘Most of them have

Prominent Students
All of the directorate members
have distinguished themselves in

in campus activities; Rufus Kim

Emerald staffs, and was publicity
chairman for the high school con
ference last year.
weeK-ena i rowaea
In order to bring the old grads
back to the campus this fall in the
largest possible numbers, Fraun
dorf has already outlined a week
end fully as crowded with the tra
ditional events of Homecoming as
any in the past.
“My plan,” he said, “is to make
this Homecoming the most inter
esting and entertaining one in his
tory. There will be all of the cus
tomary features of the past, and it
is my hope and wish to add several
new features.”
The central point of interest, of
course, will be the football clash
between Oregon and U. C. L. A.
Saturday afternoon on Hayward
field. A huge rally parade Friday
rnght, along with the annual burn
ing of the “O” on the butte, will
help to work up enthusiasm for
the battle. A night game, at which
the Webfot Frosh will take on the
University of Washington Babes,
will follow, to wind up the events
of the evening.
Saturday will be featured by the

loo, and in the evening the Home

Work of Oregon
Frederic W. Goudy, world fa
mous typographer and type de
signer, dropped in unexpectedly at
the school of journalism yesterday
morning to inspect the work in
typography, and sat in at the
school faculty meeting. Mr. Goudy
has been lecturing to Craftsman
clubs and ad clubs at Spokane,
Vancouver, B. C., Seattle, and
Portland and is on his way to San
Mr. Goudy did not find his true
vocation until after he was 40,
and cut no type until he was 60.
He is now known as one of the
world's greatest experts in type
design, has been awarded numer
ous medals for his craftsmanship,
was a delegate to the Exposition
of Industrial and Modern Arts at
Paris in 1925, and is the editor of
Arts Typographica, one of the pre
eminent trade journals. He is art
director or “chief aestheticist” for
the Langston Monotype corpora

concerns and lecturer in New York
university; but most of his work
he does for himself at his “Village

old eighteenth century mill at
Mr. Goudy is a printer of fine
books rather than a printer of nu

Noise-fest; Aaron Frank,
Chairman, Predicts
With the lowest round trip rates
to Portland in history promised
for the Hally special train, to be
run Friday afternoon, members of
the Rally committee have com
pleted final details for the greatest
rally in the history of Portland.
The huge affair, which is expected
to draw 50,000 people, according
to the estimate of Aaron Frank,
honorary chairman, will be held on
the Sixth street side of the Port
land hotel at 8 o’clock Friday
The Rally train will leave the
campus about 3:30 Friday after
noon and a special low round trip
fare of $2.75 has been offered to
the Oregon students who will
make the trip. The rooters will
march from the Union station in
Portland direct to the hotel for
the rally and it is planned to have
Portland and University leaders
speak at the gathering.
Mimnaugh Urges Attendance
“We want every student possible
to go to Portland on the train and

Portland every Oregon student

gone football crazy and it is up
to us to show the people of the
Rose City that we appreciate their
efforts to make the game a suc
Every sort of • contrivance to

Watts Breaks
Shoulder In
Practice Game
Injury Will Keep Halfbaek
Slar Out of Game for
Rest of Season
Lomlalil and Slieeliy Hurt
In Fierce Practice
Last Night
Catastrophe reared its evil head
over the Oregon horizon of foot
ball hopes last night when Ddn
Watts, brilliant halfback, was re
moved from the practice field with
a broken shoulder. The injury
was incurred during a heavy
scrimmage with the freshman
team, and authenticity of the re
port was proven by an X-ray pho
tograph taken at the Pacific Chris
tian hospital, revealing a broken
right collar bone.
This means that Watts is out
for the season, and that fact will
break up one of the most brilliant
and consistent scoring combina
tions in the country. Watts and
Johnny Kitzmiller were the key
men to the Webfoot offensive, and
the loss of the former has dropped
a thick mantle of gloom on the
Webfoot prospects for defeating
Washington in Portland next Sat
Tackled Fiercely
The casualty occurred when
Watts flashed ahead of his inter
ference and snatched a forward
pass. Three freshmen, Fred Ken
nedy, fullback, Mike Mikula, end,
and Ray Kelly, halfback, tackled
him fiercely and crushed him to
the ground with his shoulder
twisted beneath him.
Johnny Londahl, sent in to
carry on, was knocked senseless
on the first play, and did not en
tirely come to till the cold water
of the showers revived him. Dan
Sheehey, the next replacement,
had hard luck also. He sprained
his ankle after a few minutes of
play and left the scrimmage. He
fractured that same ankle last
year when playing with the fresh
man team; and it is hurt so badly
now that there is no chance of
recovery by next Saturday.
Garnett Out
Loadahl will undoubtedly be re
covered by then, however, but Cliff
Garnett, sophomore, another man
who might have helped plug the
hole left by Watts, is suffering
from a broken cheek bone, so will
not be able to face the Huskies
in Portland. George Currie may
not be able to play because he has
a badly wrenched back.
The other possibilities for back
field material now center around
Wally Shearer, Sam Rottenburg,
William Parke, and Wallace Laur
ance. Rottenburg is the most
likely candidate for the vacancy.
He accompanied the team to Chi
cago, and has played good football
all season.
Frosh Tough Stuff
The frosh team showed remark
able defensive power against the
varsity during the scrimmage. The
rugged yearlings held their sea
soned opponents for downs con
sistently, and finally got so rough,
tough, and raucous that they were
removed, and the second varsity
team opened up on the wounded
first stringers with a bunch of
Washington plays. They puzzled
the scarred Webfoot veterans for
awhile, and then the tragic scrim
mage was stopped by Doc Spears.
Dr. Mez, Oregon 3-In-l Pro f.
Dicusses European Outlook
When does one make three ? One
makes three when you are talking
about John R. Mez, member of the
Oregon faculty, who is on a leave
of absence this fall to take a trip
around the world. One-third of Dr.
Mez is an economist, the second
third is a political scientist, and
the last third is a musician. An
economist, if in Europe, would vis
it the Bank of International Pay
ments at Basle. Dr. Mez did that.
A political scientist would study
the League of Nations. Dr. Mez
did that. A musician would attend
musical programs in Vienna. Dr.
Mez did that. In other words, Ore
gon has three professors traveling
b round the world. Three profes
sors each with the title, "John R.
I Mez, Associate Professor of Eco
nomics and Political Science and
Instructor of Cello.
A glimpse into the many inter
ests of this many titled professor
can be got from a letter received
by the Emerald from him, post
marked at Port Said, Egypt.
The letter follows:

sions and the highlights of my
