Thirty-Two Oregon Players
Arrive at Westwood Amidst
Din of UCLA Homecoming
Webfoots in Optimistic Mood as Time Nears foi
Chance at Last Conference Win

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20.—(Ex
clusive to the Emerald.)—Home
coming day! Bruins of Wes'twood
vs. the Ducks of Eugene! The
campus cluttered with old grads.
The big bonfire! California spirit
at its peak! That’s this week-end
at Westwood—the biggest week
end of the year.
While Westwood was in feverish
excitement this morning over the
prospects of the biggest homecom

characters in the celebration quiet

appearance on the scene.
Mr. Espee’s classy West Coast

station at 8:05 this morning.
Thirty-three men, their pudgy lit
tle coach, and a few camp follow
ers got off the train. It was the
Oregon football team which plays
the Battling Bruins of Westwood
in the homecoming climax at the
Olympic stadium tomorrow.
A small crowd was on hand to
greet the Oregonians. Newspaper
photographers lined the invaders
up for a few pictures, then Doc
Spears bundled his men off by bus

Optimism reigned supreme in
the Oregon camp, as the Webfoots,
already possessor of the mythical
championship of the Northwest,
anticipated a victory in their final
conference game of the season.

“The fundamental point in the
new system is that the grade point
average, to be commonly spoken
of as the GPA, becomes the basis
of many University requirements.
Points are figured in the same way
as before, by multiplying the hours
of credit given for a course by the
number of points corresponding to
the grade earned. These are: 3
points for A; 2 for B; 1 for C; 0
for 4; and —1 for F. The GPA is
then computed by dividing the sum
of grade points by the total hours
taken; it is a measure of quality.
In all computations, incompletes
are disregarded as to both points
and hours, as they are considered

EEMS that the foul breath of deep and dark secrecy
pervades the atmosphere whenever a collegiate
sport writer attempts to probe the depths of pro
fessionalism and subsidization as It exists at the
present time in amateur sports. Yesterday we were
prepared to run a comparatively mild article upon
I the subject, but it was finally decided by the powers
that be that the thing was of a libelous character
[ and would possibly tread on too many toes for the
i good of Oregon, and so forth, and so forth.
It seems to be pretty bad when nobody can say
in* o mutter thiQ IrinH for ff>np of qtnrtiTKf H Ylfnhf*
that would bid fair to rip the whole affair as wide open as an unbut
toned overcoat. Perhaps the best thing to do is to turn mollycoddle

OREGON FIGURED TO WIN
Now that we have been properly chastised, we'll settle down and
try to version a bit on the U. C. L. A.-Oregon game this Saturday.
Perhaps we’ll even try another prediction—although the wide miss on
; the U. S. C. struggle still irks -say 3 2-0, Oregon. This outcome is
j perhaps based on the fast-rising squad'from down there that has shown
a world of development since the start of the season. For this Satur
day's game, their defense will be intact, the entire first-string line
will be on the job and ready to go. It has been this line, coupled
with the Uclans’ two backfield stars, Duncan and Bergdahl, that has
j been the main reason for the aforementioned rise. This Saturday,
I Bergdahl, the boy who practically beat St. Mary’s single-handed, will
! be on the bencli with an injured leg, and Captain Duncan, according
jto Coach Bill Spaulding, may not get in. Here’s the offense with a
\ big hole in the attack—it may be true—or not—all we get up here
is biased dope from there as a build-up for the game. With these two
[ luminaries either in or out, I believe that Oregon is still the better
j team because when the Webfoot line clicks again, as it is all set to
j do today, it has enough stuff to stop most anything that U. C. L. A.
[ can put on the field.
J FINAL LAP OF SEASON
Oregon, the champion of the Northwest part of the conference,
is in the South for two very tough squabbles within a week for the
j determination of second place on the coast. Winning these two ball
; games will put the Webfeet right up in the running with a most suc
j cessful season behind them—only one defeat. Losing both of them
downs the Oregon squad to the class of mediocrity.
Spears has pulled a new and unbalanced team through the hardest
schedule in the history of the school and so far this season has put
out a team that has eclipsed every hope of even the most optimistic.
As far as winning ball games, the Oregon coaching staff has had
plenty to do more to do in figuring out how to win ball games and
traveling here and there than to be dragged into the squabbles that
have been going the rounds this year. Win, lose, or draw, the Web
feet have picked a few feathers from the tails of the country’s best
j and, while these final games of the season have everything to do with
i the standings, football at Oregon has come through.
