VOLUME XXXIII_ Rally Tonight Will Uncover Pre-Game Pep University Band Will Lead Parade Seven o’Clock Time for Gathering at Igloo; Slocum Leader Pre-game enthusiasm for Ore gon’s debut into the Coast confer ence football race against Idaho Saturday will reach its height to night at a campus-wide rally to be staged in McArthur court, starting at 7 o’clock. The signal for the gathering will be given by the University band, which will start from the R. O. T. C. headquarters, march through the campus, and lead the proces sion of students back to the Igloo, where Kelsey Slocum, yell leader, and his assistants will lead the crowd in the traditional yells and songs that are calculated to strike terror into Idaho hearts. Brian Mimnaugh, student body president, and Carson Mathews, Rally committee chairman, were busy esterday lining up the pro gram for tonight's celebration. Irv. Schulz, captain of the Web foot team, will be introduced, and Coach Spears will probably be on hand to make a brief address. Efforts are also being made to se cure Dick Reed as one of the speakers. Reed was football cap tain several years ago. All living organizations are re quested to start dinner at 5:30, and every effort will be made to have the rally well under way promptly at 7 or shortly there after. The band, declared to be bigger and better than at any time in re cent years, will have its first real chance to show off the natty new West-Point style uniforms that are expected to lend a dash of color to the marching between periods at the Idaho game ang other contests later in the season. The outfits consist of green and yellow shakos, tight-fitting vest, flashy cape and striped trousers. Fall Quarter is Big Hazard for Poor Students Forty-two Disqualified for Hour Deficiency; Total For Year 104 Fall term is the hazard into which the largest number of stu dents fall because of poor grades, statistics compiled by the regis trar’s office show. In the winter term a smaller number fails to make good shots and in the spring a still lower number of students are eliminated, the tables further show. During the fall term of 1930-31 there were 42 students who failed to qualify because of poor grades. In the second term the number was 34 and in the spring, 28. Just 104 were disqualified during the University year. Of the 28 who were disqualified during the spring- term 19 were men and 9 were women. Tying for first place were the freshman and sophomore classes with 10 mem bers eliminated from each. Six of those to be dropped were juniors, one a senior, and another a second year law student. The requirements for freshmen and sophomores are that they must pass at least five hours and for juniors and seniors that they pass at least 10 hours. Failure to do this means that the student is disqualified from returning to the University for one year. After that time he may petition to re enter. Six Inaugurate Year ^ itli Colds, Minor Ills Seasonal colds and other slight ailments have placed six students in the University infirmary during the first week of school. Those suffering from colds are Lois Jean Rasch, Isobel Crowell, Bob De Graff, and Leonard Jones. Earnest Rae, varsity football can didate, is being treated for a boil and the case of Bob Hall, who was admitted yesterday, has not been diagnosed. Tickets Go at Cut Rates for Oregon Idaho Ball Game Making a concerted effort to draw a huge crowd of Oregon stu dents to Portland for the Oregon Idaho football game Saturday, student body officers have decided, for the first time in the history of Portland gridiron contests, to sell rooters’ tickets at half the regular price, or only 50 cents. The tickets will be on sale at the Co-op store at this price to all holders of student body cards. As additional advertising, two Oregon windshield stickers will be given with each ticket purchased. Train rates have been lowered to $2.50 for the round trip. Sclienk to Head Alpha Delta Sigma For Coming Year _ “ Holmes, Painton, Schenk Leave for Seattle Convention Harry Schenk, advertising man ager of the Emerald, was elected president of Alpha Delta Sigma, men’s national _. advertising hon orary, at a meeting of the fraternity Mon day. Schenk succeeds Jack Gregg, whose resignation was accepted by the members. Bob Holmes was named vice - president ot tne orgam Harry Schenk zation, and Phil * Cogswell, sec - retary-treasurer in place of Hal Leonard, who did not return to school. All three of the new offi cers have been prominent in school activities and are seniors in the school of journalism. In addition, two men were elect ed into active membership of Alpha Delta Sigma. They were Vinton Hall, last year’s editor of the Emerald, and Dick Goebel, a sophomore. Hall has had experi ence in all forms of newspaper work, while Goebel was formerly employed in the advertising de partment of Sears and Roebuck and later by the Ray Carr adver tising agency. Immediately after being named president, Schenk' was appointed official delegate to the national bi annual convention of Alpha Della Sigma being held in Seattle Octo ber 1 to 3. He left yesterday morning for the meeting accom panied by Holmes and Johnny Painton. The three will take an active part in the convention. Schenk will officiate during formal initiation ceremonies. The Oregon men stopped in Port land yesterday noon on their way north to be guests of honor at the luncheon of the Portland Adver tising club. Schenk, who won first prize for his speech delivered at the national advertising conven tion at Long Beach, California, early in the summer, gave a short talk before the Portland club. Many U. O. Students Needing Employment More women applied to Mar garet Edmunson, Y. W. C. A. sec retary, who is in charge of the employment of women on the cam pus, this year than before, and probably more students were placed than last year. The people of Eugene responded l well with places of. work for room and board, but there is a need of more small jobs which will net the student from ten to fifteen dollars monthly. There was con siderable demand for part-time ; secretarial positions of which - there was none on file, Miss Ed ! munson reports. Valuable Discoveries Made by Edwin Hodge Many valuable scientific and economic discoveries were made during a geological survey of the Mount Hood area this summer, ac j cording to Edwin T. Hodge, profes sor of geology. Professor Hodge spent the vacation period mapping a 60 mile square around Mount | Hood. 1 Hurricane in W est Indies Fails To Disturb Professor Weathering a West Indian hur ricane is the unique experience of Ray T. Bowen, head of the ro mance language department, on hi3 recent trip to the East. And a hurricane powerful enough to de stroy the entire city of Belize, British Honduras, is something to be reckoned with. ‘‘It all started with a visit to my home in Pennsylvania,” said Professor Bowen, “and then came the determination to return via the Panama canal,” Professor Bowen spent a few days in New York, then set sail on the eventful voyage. His ship touched at Havana, and was pro ceeding toward Colon when the storm set in. For several days the waves rolled high, but under able management, he said, the ship weathered the storm with no more serious effects than the uncanny feeling that possesses one after a twenty-story elevator ride. “The amusing part, though,” Professor Bowen added, “was the total lack of seasickness during the whole trip. This is the first time I have entirely escaped this hoodoo of ocean voyagers.” Other boats, however, were not so fortunate, for his ship had the novel experience of salvaging the lifeboats of the liner Columbia, which was grounded off the Mexi can coast, The storm had left its handwriting over the entire Car ibbean sea, several coasting vessels being wrecked as far away from the hurricane center as the west ern coast of Mexico. The remain der of the trip was comparatively uneventful, the boat stopping at Colon and at Panama. Panama Professor Bowen characterizes as a quaint and charming city. Pro fessor Bowen disembarked at San Francisco. “The trip as a whole was a re markable and interesting exper ience,” Professor Bowen concluded, “and I hope to go over the same course at some future date, though I can hardly hope to be treated to a hurricane on order.” Oregon Pep Band To Make Debut At Tonight’s Rally New Uniforms are Issued; Bandsmen Will Take Trips to Games Resplendent in elaborate new West Point type uniforms, and marching ana playing with the precision of 10 days hard practice accomplished, the 72-piece Univer sity of Oregon pep band under the baton of John Stehn will make its first formal appearance at the rally to be held this evening in preparation for the Idaho game at Portland, Saturday. The nearly four score men that are to make up the organization representing Oregon this year have been chosen after intensive try outs held since the first day of practice. A great many men who were in the crack pep band of last year are playing again, and a wealth of new material has also been placed in the band from the various high school bands of the state. This year the band is to make two trips, accompanying the foot ball team to Portland for the Ida ho game, and the week following to Seattle for the annual Oregon Washington combat. The new uniforms were ordered from an outfitting house in Port land and were made available to the bandsmen through the fund raised last year by efforts of the Junior class, and other organiza tions through the medium of bene fit entertainments. Emery E. Hyde is the new drum major for the organization. New Manager in At High Hat Shop Worked at U of W ‘Sparrow’s Nest’ Controlled On Washington Campus; Students, Welcomed After operating her own shop for five years on the University of Washington campus, Miss Marinda Roberts has taken charge of the High Hat book shop at the Oregon Co-op. Miss Roberts, who is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, owned the “Sparrow’s Nest,” and was well-known on the Seattle campus. “I am very desirous of helping students find just the books they want, and in aiding them in all their book problems,” said Miss Roberts. “I hope they will feel free to come up and browse around our shelves as often as they wish.” Following Miss Robert’s recent return from a visit to Europe, M. F. McClain, manager of the Co-op, succeeded in engaging her to take charge of the local book shop. YWCA Guests Enjoy Teas, Attend Games Informal teas were held every afternoon and evening of regis tration week at the Y. W. C. A. bungalow. Janet Osburne was the chairman of the committee in charge of arrangements. The time was spent in games and singing. On Friday and Saturday evenings the group attended the games and returned for tea. Pacific Basin Team Meets With Success Oregon Debaters Visit Three Countries Speakers Plan to Attend Relations Conference In Shanghai Success and applause are greet ing the three students of the Uni versity of Oregon now touring the Far East as the Pacific Basin De bate team, according to word re ceived here from them and Amer icans they encounter. The debates are held with representatives of oriental educational centers. Three of the eight Australasian and Asiatic countries have been visited by the team, which is com posed of Robert M. Miller, junior in prelaw, Pendleton; Roger A. Pfaff, junior in prelaw, Eugene; and David Wilson, junior in jour nalism, Portland. In Bombay They sailed from Portland June 2, and again from San Francisco on June 10 and arrived at Welling ton, New Zealand, aboard the SS Maungenui on June 29. So far, speaking and debating engagements have been held in the chief cities of New Zealand, Aus tralia, Ceylon, and the last com munication received from them, dated September 2, reported that they were in BornWy, India. Countries remaining on their pres ent schedule are the Philippines, China, Japan, and Hawaii. The debators expect to be at the session of the Institute of Pacific Relations at Shanghai, where they will be observers at this important international conference. They will return to Portland in December. The Pacific Basin tour is the second international forensic proj ect undertaken by students of the University of Oregon. In 1928 a three-man team traveled around the globe debating in Japan, China, the Philippines, India, Eu rope, England, and Scotland. Five Topics Used The tour has the support and cooperation of the Carnegie Foun dation for International Peace, the National Student Federation of America, the Pan-American Union and the United States Bureau of Education. Julius L. Meier, gov ernor of Oregon, a!iid George L. Baker, mayor of Portland, gave the team official letters appoint ing them ambassadors of friend ship and goodwill to the schools and countries to be visited. The choice of five subjects for debate have been offered the Ore gon team by their hosts. The questions are: “Resolved, That the world has (Continued on Page Five) A Freshman’s Impression by Ades Thousands of Miles for Law Miss Ncila Jloster, herr from Florence, Italy, as the A. W. S. for eign scholar, is shown here as she was greeted on her arrival by Oregon women students. In the group are, left to right, Ann Itauni, president of the A. VV. S.; Miss ltoster, and Louise Ansley, chairman of the foreign scholarship committee. Foreign Scholar Contrasts Campuses of Two Countries __. *__— ——— Different Customs Liked By TSella Roster From Unit, of Florence By GEORGE ROOT “As a girl must get permission from home to go to the football game in Portland this week-end I am afraid I shall be very, very late in attending as I must wait for a reply from my home in Italy.” It was Miss Nella Roster, Ore gon’s newly arrived exchange stu dent from the University of Flor ence, speaking in her usual care fully chosen English and smiling her sincere approval of the cam pus and the “so very friendly stu dents” that she has met during the eight days she has been here. “Everyone has been kind to me. The girls are so nice and, how do you say it—unsophisticated! I like them all very much. The men I have not seen so much. I can not yet judge of them,” she said. "Your University is so different from my University of Florence. There we have only one large main building in the center of the town in which we have most of our classes. Here you have so many buildings and you are so by your selves—I think it is a much better system. And your library,” she added, “stays open very late. In Florence it closes at 6 o’clock and the students study in their own rooms. We have no sororities or fraternities but only the ‘Goofs,’ our organizations that supply the social life for the students. You have so many nice activities here; when do you get time to study?” It was a rather tired Miss Ros ter that, at this point, sighed and settled back in her chair. “I trav eled a long time,” she said, "but when I arrived here I felt as if I were home. Only one person, a boy, has so far been cross with me; I was in my class with Louise, you know—Louise Ansley, and I laugh at a boy who have white pants on and yet they were black with dirt all over. Louise said to the boy, ’See, she is laughing at you,’ and the boy looked at me.” Here she demonstrated his affect ed attitude of boredom with a shrug of her shoulders, "And he said, ‘Oh, I do not have time to worry about them!’ In Italy the boys would be ashamed to wear white pants that were not white.” American food is interesting to Nella. "It is so carefully prepared and so beautiful to look at,” she (Continual on I’atjc Tiro) A. W. S.
