Emerald Writes
History in Game
Edition Saturday
For the first time in the history
of Oregon - Washington gridiron
conflicts in Seattle, the Oregon
Daily Emerald was delivered last
Saturday to Webfoot rooters just
before the game started.
The green rooters’ edition of the
Emerald, conceived by Managing
Editor Shaw, was rushed to com
pletion two hours ahead of time
Friday night and was off the press
at 2:30 a. m., ready to be loaded
aboard a Seattle-bound train at 3
Shaw, working in cooperation
with Day Editor Sterling Green
and other loyal staff members, had
all copy for the paper out of the
copy-room at 9:45 p. m., except
for the principal stories on pre
game “dope,” which were coming
by wire from the Emerald’s sports
staff in Seattle. As they came
in, Shaw and Green rewrote them,
added headlines and fed them to
the linotype machines a piece at
a time.
Howard Petit, student pressman,
rose to the emergency, and shortly
after 2 o’clock the green Emer
alds were rolling off the press—
ready for the history-making dash j
to the stadium in Seattle.
The campus edition, printed on
the conventional white paper, was
likewise off the press in the fastest
time made so far this year.

Tom Jones Experiences
Variety of Weather
On Journey
Like Tom Jones of Henry Field
ing's famous English novel, Tom
Jones at Oregon is also a wan
Stormy weather off the Mexican
coast, thick fog for five days on
the broad Atlantic, bicycle riding
in Holland, and sipping Rhenish
wine at Cologne, all went into
making an interesting summer for
Tom Jones, freshman in business
He left Portland on July 19, sail
ing down the Pacific coast, through
the Panama canal to Liverpool on
the “Damsterdyk" of the Holland
American line.
He and his companions were
taken on a drive through Wales by
a Cambridge professor. Before
leaving Great Britain, Jones wit
nessed the changing of the guards
at Windsor castle and dined at the
“Cheshire Cheese,’’ famous for be
ing frequented by Dr. Johnson and
Boswell of English literary fame.
On the continent, The Hague in
Holland was made headquarters
for his party. Seven years before,
The Hague had been Jones’ home
town. Railroad trains, automobiles,
and bicycles all served as trans
portation on his visits to Rotter
dam, Leyden, Amsterdam, Brus
sells, Ostend, Louvain, Cologne,
and the Rhineland. Even the tiny
Grand Duchy of Luxemburg did
not escape his notice.
They then returned to London,
where Jones spent a whole day
asking questions in the Bank of
Scotland. He wants to be a banker
some day (that’s why he is study
ing business administration at Ore
gon), so he thought he ought to
get a little advance light on the
British financial conditions.
•The party rented a car to drive
the length and breadth of merrie
England. The roads were excellent
throughout the island, he said. In
Canterbury he stayed at a hotel
built in 1043; in York he visited a
castle which had been converted i
into a college, and in Peterborough j
he visited a castle which had beei
converted into a prison.
They drove on through Scotland
and at a little place called Crai
gellchie, they stayed at a hotel con
ducted by people who former!}
lived in Fortland, Oregon.
They traveled through Scotland
and then turned south again tc
Wales. Here they visited Shews
bury, which had once been the cen
ter of the Welsh wool industry. Ir
olden times, he was told, the sheep
owners were not paid for theii
product until it was woven into
cloth. It was then measured off,
by rolling it around a barrel, each
time around counting as one yard.
This went on for some time before
the wool growers discovered that
at each turn of the barrel, the buy
ers gained some cloth. Since this
discovery, no raw wool has been
taken to Shewsbury.
They boarded the White Star lin
er, Laurentic, at Liverpool, crossed
the Atlantic, and sailed down the
St. Lawrence river to Montreal.
From their to Oregon, they trav
eled by rail, arriving in Portland
on September 23.

Four Selected as
! Rhodes Aspirants
Decision To Eliminate 8
From Campus Trials
Is Difficult
| Wallace Campbell, sociology ma
jor, George Harrington, history,
Frank Lombard, economics, and
D a v id Williams, mathematics,
were selected to represent the Uni
versity in the state examination
for the Rhodes scholarship at Port
land in December.
The 12 candidates for the local
contest were all juniors, but, ac
cording to the committee, they
were one of the best groups in sev
eral years, and the final decision
was difficult to make.
The examination itself is said to
aid the men in determining what
an education really implies. Knowl
edge of their special lines and gen
eral interests as well as moral and
physical fitness was searchingly
“Men who failed the first and
second times have come up again,"
Dr. George Rebec says, testifying
to- the fact that the effect of the
examination is not lost on anyone,
“and, what is of more interest to
the committee, they have shown
astpnishin^ progress in ideals and
conceptions as scholars and men
of culture.”

At 4:30 P. M.
A meeting of every active Big
Sister on the campus will be held
today at 4:30 in 105 Journalism
building to review the progress of
the Big Sister movement and make
definite plans for the immediate
future, according to Betty Anne
Macduff, chairman of the group.
“This year’s program represents
a considerable expansion in the
field of freshman personnel activ
ity,” Miss Macduff said, “and
every effort is being made to help
the new student on the campus ad
just herself to the social, scholas
tic, and extra-curricular activities
of the University.”
Forty-Six on Committee
In the spring 46 upperclass1
women were chosen on the basis
of their capacity for responsible,
sincere work. During the sum
mer the Big Sisters communicated
with the freshman women under
their supervision and arranged to
meet them on the campus regis
tration week.
In the past, Big Sister commit
tees have functioned only during
the first week of school, but this
year the heads will work under
Lhe guidance of the University j
personnel administration, as well
is in conjunction with the A. W.
S., to assist the freshman woman
in every possible way during her
first three terms on the campus.

With two campus living organi

to join in the social affair at the

annual “bunion derby,” to be held
Saturday night, will be drawn this

Votes Are Revised
Beta Fhi Alpha and Alpha Upsi
lon, who had gone on record last
week as being against Open House,
appealed to the dean of women's
office yesterday for reinstatement
on the schedule. Beta Theta Pi may
take part with the rest of the cam
pus because of the 50-50 vote polled
in the house on the question last
week, Con Hammond, president,
said last night.
With these three organizations
asking to be included, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon is the only fraternity on
the campus holding to its original
decision against Open House. The
vote of the house stood 31 to 12
against participation, a report
from Paul Bale, president, showed,
and no reversal of this action is
likely, according to Bale.
Committee Gives View
l "No loss of social prestige will
come to S. A. E. by non-participa
tion in Open House,” a statement
from the student committee ap
pointed last week to investigate
the event, said last night. “It was
the committee’s decision that only
those organizations voting for
Open House would be scheduled to
attend, and there was to be no
compulsion in the matter.
Independent women and inde
pendent men will have places on
the Open House schedule if their
representatives will make arrange
ments with the dean of women’s
office before 3 o’clock this after
noon, it was announced.
The complete schedule will be
released tomorrow morning.
