History of Doughnuts Short; Modern Rings Relatively New The luscious powdered-sugar covered confections to be sold to day by the Y. W. C. A. have a his tory behind them worth relating, though, as histories go, it is not a long one. The earliest mention of them was in Washington Irving’s Knickerbocker tales, published in 1861. The scene was 1809. The fea tured performer was “an enor mous dish of balls of sweetened dough, fried in hog’s fat, and called doughnuts, or olykoeks.” The second literary appearance of the doughnut was in 1892, with Thoreau as author and the Atlan tic Monthly as producer. This quotation showed that the dough nut was well-known in 1847: "The window was the size of an oblong doughnut, and about as opaque.” The first mention of a Dough nut day was in the first volume of Hazlitt Brand's “Popular An tiquities.” “At Baldock, Herts,” he informs us, "the children call . . . (Shrove Tuesday! Dough-nut Day, from the small cakes fried in brass skillets over the fire with hog’s lard.” From its humble beginning as a formless blob of sweetened dough in a sea of hot fat, the “fried cake" as it is not quite properly called - became a thing patterned and beautiful to look upon. Crisp dia monds, rich brown oblongs, and fat rings were the "doughnuts” of our grandmothers. “Crullers"— when correctly named—were not round, but twisted and curled. The ring-shape'1 doughnut, ac cording to Artemas Ward’s “En cyclopedia of Food," was lifted in to prominence by its distribution by Salvation Army lassies during the World war. The “brass skillet” of Baldock has been replaced by huge copper kettles. The “hog's lard" is scien tifically purified and kept at a temper&ture which guarantees a maximum of crispness and a mini mum of fat-soaking. The golden rings are dipped in snowy pow dered sugar. The "enormous dish” has become a pile of cardboard covered, sanitary boxes and cello phane sacks. But, for all that, it's Doughnut day again. Loyal Rooters To Cheer Team With Big Rally Tongue, Vail Plead for Support for Event LIBRARIES TO CLOSE •Headed for Coast Championship’ Adopted as Team Slogan; Noise, Talks Feature “Hit that line!” will be on the lips of all students tonight when a squad of revenge-seeking Ore gon gridsters boards a train for Lor, Angeles, where the Webfoot eleven will battle U.

All ordinary student activities are to be suspended at 9 p. m., when a mammoth rally will con verge on the Eugene depot to as sure the team and coach of its whole-hearted support and coop eration. Libraries to Close Tom Tongue, student body pres ident, declared, “We want to make this big.” Mickey Vail, yell king, asserted, "Anyone who pretends to have any of the old Oregon spirit will be there with bells on. The boys mowed ’em down at Wash ington, and they'll do the same at U. C. L- A. with the students be hind them.” Hazel Prutsman Schwering, dean of women, offered her sup port to the rally by granting per mission to women students to par ticipate in the celebration between 9 and 10 o’clock. M. H. Douglass, University librarian, volunteered to close all libraries at .9 p. m Vail y.rges house presidents to close their houses during the rally. Program Peppy Yells, pep talks, and noise-mak ing will feature the program. Coach Prink Callison and some of his warriors will make statements about what will happen to the Bruins Saturday. The rally committee under Vail has worked hard to make the event tonight a success, and stu dents with cars are asked to load them for the trip to the depot. “We’re headed for the Pacific coast championship!” has been adopted as the slogan for the foot ball . team this year, and Vail urges 2000 students to back up that assertion tonight.

Jealous Lobby Clock Goes on Strike When Electric Rival Appears Jealousy, the green-eyed monster, had its fling yester day in the English reserve de partment at the libe when it apparently caused the clock in , the lobby to stop just as a new clock was brought in to be in stalled. The newcomer is a grand-new slectric clock, and it has been placed in the reading room, so that students need not go to the lobby to find the time. The old eight-day clock's seeming disgust at this evidence of the fact that its heyday is over amused library attendants and workmen greatly.
