On Pepper’s First Play in a Conference Game This Happened > |
This picture shows Pepper Pepelnjak starting a 45-yard sprint that brought Oregon its first touchdown against the fighting Bruins from the University of California at Los Angeles. The Webfoots held a
7-to-0 advantage over the southerners until there were only four minutes to go. Then the Bruins began to advance over Multnomah field like a squadron of infantry. A long pass brought a touchdown, but Ore
gon still led, 7 to G. Only 15 seconds were left to play when Mitchell Frankovitch, pass-heaving quarterback, whipped the ball 80 yards to liansom Llvesay, who carried the pigskin 70 yards through the dusk to
victory, 12 to 7. This Frank Merriwell finish and Pepper’s dashing run were the highlights of one of the greatest games ever played on the Puclfie Coast.

U.S.C. Trojans To Fight Many
Contenders for National Title
For four weeks football teams
from every corner of the country
have battled for national recogni
tion. I?ach week a bevy of poten
tially great elevens drop into the
ever-growing list of defeated
teams. Yet there is still a file
of schools, which have been
neither defeated or tied on the
gridiron this fall.
There are more than 30 out
standing college aggregations,
stretching from Los Angeles to
New York, and from Michigan to
Florida which have not tasted
the bitter grapes of defeat nor
been held to a tie.
Many Stand Out
Of the above mentioned unde
feated and untied elevens, about
50 per cent stand out as serious
contenders for the national title,
now held by the University of
Southern California Trojans. These
teams, separated into their re
spective sections, are:
East—Colgate, Columbia, Pitts
burgh, Fordham, New York uni
versity, Pennsylvania, Harvard,
and Brown.
South — Kentucky, Tennessee,
Auburn, and Texas Christian.
Middle West — Michigan, Pur
due, and Notre Dame.
Pacific Coast — Stanford and
Southern California.
East Has Strong Teams
The eastern contingent is the
largest because of the great num
ber of schools included in this sec
tion. Of the eight teams leading
the race on the Atlantic seaboard,
Colgate, Pittsburgh, N. Y. U., and
Harvard are the most formidable.
Colgate has not as yet had its goal
line crossed in four major tilts,
and startled fans throughout the
nation last Saturday by trampling
the strong Lafayette outfit by a

senior class, late last night an
nounced the personnel of the
senior traditions council, an or
ganization designed to mete out
punishment to violators of cam
pus traditions, working in co
operation with the traditions

Dean Jewell Gives
Talk on System of
Future Education
Talks To Be Given Weekly
By Various Members
Of Faculty
Dean J. R. Jewell, dean of the
school of education last night gave
his views on the methods of fu
ture educational systems before a
large congregation of students and
members of the faculty at Gerlin
ger hall. This was the second of
a series of lectures under the gen
eral heading of “The World To
morrow” which are to be delivered
by various members of the facul
ty for the next six Tuesdays. This
movement is sponsored by the
Students’ Christian council.
Dean Jewell pointed out the
fact that in the past pupils have
been taught to remember great
masses of facts, but the general
trend now in the educational sys
tems is to give more laboratory
work, and to teach students to do
things which require skill. Dean
Jewell emphasized that “measur
able skill is noticeable,” but that
knowing a lot of rules and facts
is an obscure attribute in students.
It is his belief that in the future
educators will stress the acquire
ment of skill rather than gorging
students with data.
Theatre Passes
Won by ‘Scribes’
Ed Stanley, senior in journal
ism, wins the Colonial pass this
week for having turned in 20
stories to the Emerald. Barney
Clark, freshman, was second, with
a total of 16. Twelve was the
largest number of stories turned
in by one person last week.
For the best work of the week
as night editor, Hubert Totton re
ceived a pass. He worked on Fri
day’s paper.
Malcolm Bauer, assistant sports
editor, took the prize for doing the
most outstanding work of the
week. This award was based on
the recommendation of the crew
at the press.
For the second consecutive
week, Howard Brower won the
pass for being the best copyreader
on the Emerald. He wrote 21
heads, 10 more than last week’s
winning score. Betty Powell was
second this week with 14 heads.
Frances F.othwell took third place
with 12 heads.

ASUO Committee Says
New Ruling Ineffective
Students participating in cam
pus activities will not be effected
this year by the recently installed
ruling to the effect that class
standings are necessary to engage
in class activities, it was decided
yesterday at a meeting of the ju
diciary committee of the A. S. U.
The new regulation stated that
a student candidate for any office
or position must have the standing
of the class to which the appoint
ment or election had reference.
Under this ruling, many of this
year's student office holders were
ineligible for their present posi
Steps were taken by the com
mittee to amend the constitution
of the university so as to keep it
in conformity with the previous
action of the committee.
Infirmary Has Charm
Upon Football Players
The football players still seem
to like the infirmary in spite of,
or possibly because of, the beating
they take. Art Clarkson refuses
to be like Jim Gemlo, old indi
viduality plus. Art goes to the
infirmary every evening in order
to get heat treatments for his
broken shoulder, while Jim drifts
in for ice to put on his injured
optic. Otherwise the girls have
the place to themselves.
Those having the run of the
place for the time being are Helen
Catherine Sargent, Gladys Burns,
Gladys Backe, and Dorothy Mc
which will either be in the form j
of a loan fund or a presentation of
a bust of the late Dean John
Straub, dean emeritus of the Uni
versity of Oregon. The matter was
laid aside for a future meeting.
A discussion was made on the
continuation of the junior-senior
dance. It was voted to continue
the precedence and the date has
been set for November 10 or 11.
Cecil Espy, class president, ex
plained that the senior traditions
committee composed of 10 mem
bers would cooperate with Presi
dent Bob Hall’s traditions oourt.
These, he announced, he would
name later.
2 Graduates Now
Teach at U. High
Two former University students
are now teaching at the Univer
sity high school. They are D. L.
Leslie, supervisor of the biology
department, and Joseph Holaday,
supervisor of social science.
Mr. Leslie graduated from Ore
gon in 1930, and has been teaching
in various public schools in the
Mr. Holaday graduated in 1929
and spent the next year teaching
in Corvallis high. While in Cor
vallis he became acquainted with
a great number of Oregon faculty,
of which several have been trans
ferred to Oregon this year. The
last two years Mr. Holaday has
spent teaching in Klamath Union
high school, and when Easton
Rothwell, former supervisor of so
cial science at University high, re
ceived an appointment at Stan
ford, Mr. Holaday was given the
position. He is also teaching a
course in methods of teaching so
cial science in the University, and
at the same time working for a
master’s degree.

Journalism Cast
Cares Aside, See
Show at Colonial
The journalism shack, usual
ly crowded with busy workers,
was bereft of diligent Emerald
workers last night. Typewrit
ers ceased their noisy chatter,
and no crumpled wads of copy
paper bounced vaguely in the (
region of the waste baskets.
The telephone did not ring, or
if it did it was due for disap
pointment after 9:30.
Taking advantage of the gen
erous hospitality of Glen God
frey, promotion manager of the
theater, who furnished passes,
the journalistic threats tucked
their pencils behind their ears
and trekked en masse to the
Colonial theatre, where ‘‘X
Marks the fcpot" was shown.

Librarian To Talk
To Editing Class
Guides for locating material
for theses, and short cuts for news
writers will be the predominant
features in the address to be given
to journalism majors in editing
class this morning by Miss Lenore
Casford, circulation librarian at
the University of Oregon.
So much difficulty has been en
countered by students writing
term papers in journalism classes
that Miss Casford and Dean Allen
have decided to demonstrate the
correct methods to locate desir
able material, and do so in the
shortest time possible.
The use of card catalogues,
periodicals, and such pamphlets
as the ‘'Headers’ Guide” will be
stressed by the librarian in her
effort to acquaint the journalists
with the inner side of the old libe.1
Dad’s Committee
Chosen by ("only;
Weed Made Head
Plan Information Bureau;
Students Will Send
A sub-committee has been se
lected by Barbara Conly, registra
tion chairman, to aid her in mak
■ing provisions to welcome the Uni
versity Dads who will attend the
sixth annual Dad’s Day on Satur
day, October 29.
The committee consists of Mar
garet Weed, Charles Clay, Virginia
Kibbee, A1 McKelligon, Louise
Barclay, and Walt Gray. This
group will make contacts with
each house organization to have
students meet the Dad’s at the
train on Friday and Saturday.
As a special feature that will be
something new in the way of wel
coming the Dads. Miss Conly is
planning to have an information
bureau at the depot to direct the
Dads to the campus,
to assist in making Dad’s Day the
to assist in making Dad’s day the
most successful ever held, Tom
Tongue, advertising chair man,
said, “Don’t take it for granted
that the students have written to
Dads, but check up on each mem
ber to make sure.” Father the rep
resentatives or the committee ap
pointed by house presidents should
make necessary arrangements for
the entertainment of the Dads dur
ing the times when there is no
event on the campus program.
Special arrangements for lunch
eons on Saturday and dinners on
Sunday should be made.
Programs will be distributed
this week to be sent to all the
Dads by the students. The Uni
versity has already sent an an
nouncement of Dad’s Day Week
end and a tentative program of its
events to the Dads of the state. A
large percentage of the Dads in all
the houses will mean that the so
rority, fraternity, or dormitory or
ganizations will have a chance to
cop one of the cups that are on
diisplay at the Co-op.
Marjorie Haas, banquet chair
man, who is working in conjunc
tion with Mrs. Genevieve Yurnip

Remain Under
Faculty Rule
Autos To Be Registered
With Authorities
Committee Reserves Power To
Revoke Permits for
Hue Cause
In spite of the fact that prohi
bition of student autos was with
drawn by the state board of high
er education at their meeting
Monday, student use of cars will
remain under the control of the
University authorities, if plans for
modified enforcement are put into
The proposed plans would re
quire students to register all cars
with the authorities. It provides
a weapon for the control and
penalizing of students who abuse -
the liberties extended to them, and
will make the strict observance
of the traffic laws an important
factor, with heavy penalties for
flagrant lkw violation.
iiniuriTmrni nuu,v i unununi
As far as is known, faculty en
forcement committees will con
tinue, and will be the executive
bodies in the new plans of modifi
cation. They will work in con
junction with each other, and act
on all matters concerning prob
lems of student driving.
However, with their work of
passing on petitions for permits
lifted, meetings would probably
be necessary only to the extent of
one two-hour meeting a week, in
stead of the three four-hour meet
ings which have been necessary
to clear up the vast amount of
work accumulated at the opening
of school.
Spencer’s Points Listed
Specifically, the important
points to be offered to the com
mittee by Carlton Spencer, chair
man of the board, at the next
meeting of the body are:
1. That permission to use a car
be withdrawn in every case where
it plays a detrimental part in a
student's scholarship, discipline,
social life, or general welfare. This
will be invoked in connection with
all forms of violation of campus
regulations and traditions. All In
stitutional officers and commit
tees having the administration of
regulations, or in any way con
nected with student welfare, will
have the use of cars in mind. This
will be particularly true of the
scholarship committee, discipline
committee, housing committee,
and the like.
2. All students who desire to
use their cars will probably be
required to register them with
the proper authorities of the in
stitution. Some form of tag or
sticker^will likely be adopted as a

Deady\s 19th Century Style
Subject for Reminiscence
Have you ever gazed reminis
cently at Deady hall, likening it
to grandmother’s house where you
used to make mud pies, and play
Robin Hood ou^ under the oak
tree ?
It is no wonder—for Deady,
with its projecting cupolas and
towers, is very like the stylish
19th-century homes. Indeed, it
may have been built by the very
same carpenter that put that
squeaky door in grandmother’s
attic, way back in 1876.
If you ever arrive at the top of
Deady (if it isn't necessary few
people do it, ’cause it's four long
flights up), you’ll notice that’ the
roof’s high, with tall windows and
window-seats—it looks rather like
the old witch’s room in “Cinder
ella”—or was it the “Sleeping
Beauty” ? This floor formerly
was used for an assembly hall,
with all the University classrooms
on the floors below. (They must
have started for their assemblies
15 minutes early—it takes nearly
that long to climb all the stairs.)
Up on this floor of Deady hall
is a collection of zoology and bot
anical specimens. Indeed, the
mud pies that one associates with
the old building could be made
there—for Professor E. P. Sipe
has a big washtub full of dirt,
where he cultivates plants and
seedlings. But right at present
there's nothing in it— and so—.
