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
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
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
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.

Alpha Delta Sigma
For Coming Year
_ “
Holmes, Painton, Schenk
Leave for Seattle
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
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

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
“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

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
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.

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

Different Customs Liked
By TSella Roster From
Unit, of Florence
“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
