Hail, Spears! Hail, Webfoots !
TT was nearing 5 o’clock. Disappointed Washington rooters
were filing out of the big stadium; Oregon students, alumni,
and backers were still cheering themselves hoarse, and the Web
foots were well on their way to a stunning 13-0 victory over
the University of Washington Huskies. Then came the sharp
crack of the timer’s gun ending the twenty-fifth annual encoun
ter between Webfoot and Husky gridiron warriors.
But the game was not over then, it seems. In fact, it is not
over even at this writing, nor will it be for some months and
maybe even years to come. The classic played on stadium turf
Saturday has been replayed countless times since in fraternity
bull-fests, on the train bringing students back to the campus,
and in sports columns of newspapers up and down the coast.
It was a sparkling victory that Oregon turned in against the
Huskies, a victory that stands as a great tribute to Dr. Clarence
W. Spears, head coach for the Webfoots, and his sophomore
squad a victory that places Oregon in a tie with the Trojans
of U. S. C. for the coast conference leadership.
Only in his second year as Oregon’s football mentor, Doc
Spears has won the whole-hearted support of all Webfoot grid
followers, lie was brought to Eugene as an outstanding coach,
and he lias more than fulfilled his share of the bargain. For
an outstanding coach he is, and his teams reflect his ability.
Three green-jerseyed Webfoots wrote football history for
themselves in the Washington game Mike Mikulak, Bill Bower
man, and Red Bailey. But they were not alone. Dillard, Watts,
Gee, Rotenbcrg, Morgan, Schulz, Nilsson they were all in the
thick of the fray. Every man in the game, no matter for how
long, did his part, and did it well.
JJnder Spears, the Webfoots are a well-drilled, heads-up, per
fectly conditioned football team. Oregon students and alumni
cannot, boost too much the genial Doctor and his warriors.
Around The State
Y"\NCE again Dr. Arnold Bennett Hull starts out with mem*
bers of the University staff and administrative officials of
the Oregon Mothers and Oregon Dads for his annual tour of
the state in the interests of higher education, and particularly
higher education at Oregon.
This is the third time Dr. Hall has made this trip, which will
include the principal cities in the state from whieh Oregon stu
dents come. Meeting's are held with parents of Oregon students
and alumni, at which Dr. Hall and others on the tour will explain
the work and policies of the University and of the Mothers’ and
Through this project, one of several which Dr. Hall has initi
ated for the purpose, parents of men anil women at the Uni
versity are made better acquainted with the functions, work, and
ideals of the school whieh their children attend. They are en
abled to understand more fully the activities of the various
phases of the University, and they are given the viewpoint of
Through this annual trip Dr. Hall is showing parents of Ore
gon undergraduates what they can do to help the University.
Many people throughout the state, friends of the institution, are
anxious to help il progress, but are not sufficiently well
acquainted with Us problems and needs to do this intelligently
and effectively. At the meetings which will be held throughout,
the state during the next ten days. Dr. Hall will outline ways in
which the University’s plans may be progressed nearer realiza
tion with l he help of parents and alumni.
The visits which Dr. Hall and his "staff" are making to a
dozen cities in the state this week and part of next are a part
of the general plan which Dr. Hall has been realizing since his
coming here five years ago to bring about greater mutual co
operation and friendship between parents, alumni, and friends
with the University. Personal contact with parents and alumni
throughout the state has proved most beheiicial in the past two
years that the tour has been made, and the re is every reason
to believe that the benefits accruing from it will increase in the
"Neatest Trick of the Week”
rT'l‘AT smart, up-to-the-minute magazine, The New Yorker,
should find good material for its "Neatest Trick of the
Week" department in the Emerald’s accomplishment Saturday.
For the first time on record, the Emerald ran two editions
in the early morning hours, sending 500 copies on bright green
paper to Seattle, where they, were distributed to Oregon rooters
in the stands at the Webfoot-Husky gridiron battle. For those
students remaining in Eugene over the week-end, a second “Cam
° pus Edition" was run on the conventional white stock.
The feat oof getting Saturday morning's "Hooters' Edition"
Emerald delivered to students during the first quarter of the
game was certainly this paper's "neatest trick of the week." It
was tin result of hard, speedy work and co-operation between
news and mechanical departments to give subscribers service.
We are justly proud of our accomplishment.

Cruise To Hawaii Exclient
Opportunity Claims Director
After the return of many of the
students to universities and re
sumption of the regular academic
schedule, Burt Brown Barker, vice
president of the University and di
rector of the summer session |
cruise to Hawaii conducted this I
last summer, yestai lay told of it j
as an outstanding opportunity for j
The opportunity to study and at
the same time to enjoy the relaxa
tion of an ocean voyage and a visit i
to another country tempted 53 stu
dents to join the cruise. The trip
covered the period between June
20 and August 5.
According to Mr. Barker, it
proved to be an ideal time to make '
the trip. "Many persons have \
asked why we chose summer for |
a trip to Hawaii." said Mr. Barker,
"but there are excellent reasons.
In the first place, the summer
weather and calm seas permitted
a pleasant crossing, and there was
no sea sickness in our party. In
the second place, we missed the
rainy season entirely, and were
able to enjoy the full beauty of
the flowering trees and shrubs fori
which Hawaii is so justly famous. ]
As for heat, there is only about
ten degrees difference between the
summer and winter temperatures
in Hawaii, for the cool trade
winds blow in from the sea in i
summer, making the average tern- j
perature about So degrees. There
e no high humidity."
On board the Empress of Japan,
a Cauadiau Pacific vessel, which
: . the lar6 *t and fastest ship m
trans-Pacific service, every accom
modation was provided for the
students and faculty of the Ore
gon party. Ample classroom and
library space was available, and in
addition the officials of the line
had provided a special swimming
pool for the summer session stu
dents by stretching a huge tar
paulin on one of the decks.
One of the features of the voy
age, according to Mr. Barker, were
the lectures en route by Dr. T. M.
Livesay, director of the summer
sessions of the University of Ha
waii, who, during the five-day
voyage, told the students some of
the points of interest and historic
value about the islands.
“Hawaii is famed for the beauty
of its flowering trees and shrubs,"
said Mr. Barker, “but we were
particularly surprised by the
length of the flowering season on
the islands. The flowers were in
full bloom when we landed and
seemed equally brilliant and color
ful when we sailed for home.
"I remember riding on an open
street car where the perfume of
the flowers and shrubs seemed to
fill the air."
Mr. Barker mentioned in partic
ular the many carnations, garden
ias, and the ginger flowers, a
small white trumpet-shaped wild
flower. "Gardenias were plenti
ful," he said, “and I bought one
large lei made entirely of them for
only 50 cents!"
On landing, the students took up
their headquarters at Punahow
school, a preparatory school, while
they attended classes at the Uni
versity of Hawaii. Castle hall was
the dormitory where the girls
“Punahow school has a very fine
outdoor swimming pool,” said Mr.
Barker, “which, with its dressing
j rooms, cost $125,000.”
Another high point of enjoyment ]
j on the trip was their journey to
the Kilauea volcano. In order to
reduce the expenses, the students
slept on deck both going to the vol
cano and returning. With plenty
of blankets, the experience proved
not uncomfortable, according to
Mr. Barker, even though it rained.
The faculty on the trip included
Dr. Samuel Jameson, Stephenson
Smith, and Miss Agnes Dorothy
Campbell. Mr. Barker acted as
director of the cruise, and was ac
companied by Mrs. Barker and
their daughter, Barbara. Glenna
Fisher was acting secretary and

Yes, sir! You spend $2,704,488 a year while you are in
school. That’s quite a lot, and then when you go and
spend over 75 per cent of it right here in Eugene—it’s a
heck of a lot!
The estimated patronage given by the student body to
Eugene business exceeds two million dollars every year.
There is nothing wrong in that. In fact, it is a mighty
good idea. Eugene does a lot towards supporting and
helping the University of Oregon.
When you do buy, though, read the advertisements in the
Oregon Daily Emerald. Buy only from the advertisers
and you will be sure of a square deal. Remember—buy
more in Eugene, but only from the advertisers!
