Bill Says He Was Not
Consulted on Choices
Quarterback Wanted To Head
Athletic Group; Avers He Was
Made Music Chief
Charging- that Bob Hall, stu
dent-body president, had appoint
ed himself head of all the impor
tant A. S. U. O. committees, Bill
Bowerman, vice-president of the
student-body and varsity football
quarterback, last night issued a
statement to the Emerald in which
he assailed what he termed were
the president’s “autocratic” meth
"Hall has appointed himself
chairman of all the major student
body committees and has given
myself and the other officers
scarcely any voice whatsoever in
the conducting of the govern
ment,” Bowerman said. “He is
chairman of the executive council,
the publications committee, the
athletic committee, and the stu
dent relations committee.”
4 Committees Not Headed
Continuing, Bowerman charged
as follows: “There are only four
committees which Hall does not
head. These are the finance com
mittee, of which Jim Travis is
chairman; the forensics commit
tee, of which Cap Roberts is
chairman; the building committee,
of which Otto Vonderheit is chair
man; and the music committee, of
which I am chairman.

specifies that the president shall
head the council, the publications,
and the student relations com
mittee, but why Hall should ex

jurisdiction over the athletic com
mittee is beyond by comprehen
Asked for Job
Bowerman continued: ‘‘Before
the committees were appointed
last spring, I asked Hall to con
sider me for the head of the ath
letic committee, inasmuch as that
was the line in which my major
interest was centered. His answer
was to appoint himself. I was
named head of the music commit
tee. I know nothing about music,
and considered it poor judgment
on Hall’s part to name me to that
“Since Hall has been in office
he has not consulted me about one
appointment. I have not been
given any consideration in the
managing of the affairs of the
government. The first thing I
knew about the personnel of the
homecoming, rally, and Dad’s day
directorates was when I read
about thefa in the Emerald.”
Dictating Is Charged
Bowerman continued: “I was
elected vice-president of the stu

not think I will be fulfilling my i
obligations to my constituents if I ^

giant rally when the football team
entrains for Idaho, according to
Cecil Espy, chairman of the rally
“When the band takes control

2,000 voices break into ‘Mighty
Oregon’,” Espy stated. “We also

the crowd.”
It is announced that there will

Gleemen Introduce Oregon
Loyalty Song at Mass Meet
“We Have Heard You, Alma
Mater" is the title of the new Ore
gon loyalty song introduced last
night for the first time by the Eu
gene Gleemen at the mass meeting
held in the Eugene armory.
Words for the song, which has
been completed and utilized to
serve as a plea for the conserva
tion of the University, were writ
ten about three years ago by
James H. Gilbert, dean of the col
lege of literature, science and the
arts. The music was composed by
John Stark Evans, professor of
music and director of the Eugene
The completion of the song oc
curred a few weeks ago w’hen the
existing conditions of impending
danger to the University prompted
Mr. Gilbert to urge Mr. Evans to
write the music. The words of the
song recognized the debt owed by
the University to the pioneers that
founded it, and the obligation to
carry on and conserve the institu
tion that came as the result of
their sacrifices.
The four verses of the song fol

Oregon Emerald
Business Heads
Unfold New Plan
Stores To Be Convinced
Of Advertising Value
In School Paper
A plan to convince Eugene mer
chants of the effectiveness in ad
vertising in the Oregon Daily Em
erald was unfolded by the Emer
ald business staff last night.
The new idea is to have stu
dents and faculty members pre
sent patronage cards to the local
merchants while making any
purchases. The legend printed on
each card reads: “Your advertis
ing placed in the University of
Oregon Daily Emerald brings re
sults. Our patronage is an appre
ciation of your cooperation with
the Emerald and the University.”
The card slogan is, “Influencing
3,500 Moderns.”
Five thousand cards have been
printed and will be distributed to
all living organizations on the
campus, independent students and
faculty members. The object of
this drastic decision is to have
every student present a card to
the merchants whenever a pur
chase is made.
The purpose is to get more ad
vertising in the Emerald and to
show appreciation to those adver
tisers who have cooperated with
the Emerald and the University.
To make this effective, it is neces
sary to have 100 per cent cooper
ation on the part of the students.
In urging the students and fac
ulty to use these cards, Harry
Schenk, business manager, said,
“It is absolutely essential that
these patronage cards be placed
and used, otherwise the Emerald
will be forced to undergo a dras
tic change.” A list of all present
Emerald advertisers will be post
ed in the living organizations so
that students will be able to know
who the advertisers are when they
make purchases.
By next June from 25 to 50
thousand patronage cards will be
printed. A similar idea to this
plan is being used at the Univer
sity of Washington. From re
ports, the system has increased
local advertising to an astonish
ing degree.

down from generation to genera

Zorn-Macpherson school moving
bill which is on the November 8
Judge Harris will not give a re

play in defeating the measure. His
talk will officially open the final
student drive against the school

i\nows university" History
Judge Harris is well informed
on the school situation. He grad
uated from the University in 1893
in a class of 12 people. Since that
time he has followed constantly
the growth and development of the
institution. His record in political
annals of the state has been an
outstanding one.
When elected to the legislature
in 1901 Judge Harris secured for
the University its first increase
in appropriation. In 1903 he was
chosen speaker of the house in the
legislature, after which he served
10 years on the circuit bench of
the second judicial district. In 1915
he became a judge in the supreme
I court in which capacity he served
until 1924, when he resigned to
practice law in Eugene.
Since the first developments on
the Zorn-Macpherson bill Judge
Harris has been one of the strong
est opponents to the measure in
the state and has done much ex
cellent work in combatting pro
ponents of the school grab.
Bob Hall, president of the A. S.
U. O., will call the assembly to
order. Art Potwin, alumni direc
tor of the student anti-merger
campaign, will introduce Judge
Harris in the absence of Lynn S,
McCready, finance chairman of
the chamber executive committee.
