“I am happy to announce that I
shall remain at Oregon,” Dr. Boyer

that I was considered for the posi
tion in Montana, I feel that oppor
tunities to be of service to higher
education in this state are very
great. Under the chancellorship of

would like to have a hand in this
progress at the University of Ore

short time ago conferring with of
ficials concerning the position of
president on that campus and se
riously considered making the

est recommendations. Hs has also
been urged by faculty members at
the Oregon State college and other

faculty and staff members of the
University and the'state system of
higher education who have ob:
served the way in which he has con
ducted the office of president,” Dr.
Hunter said. “He is regarded as

high ideals have been universally
, recognized," Dr. Hunter declared.

Class Starts Work
Norris E. Class, formerly of
Cleveland, where he headed the
adolescent boy’s department of the
child welfare bureau, has now
taken up his duties in Portland as
a member of the faculty of the
newly organized division of social
work training of the University of
Oregon. Mr. Class, an expert in
this field, will work in Portland
where the new division of the Uni
versity will offer courses in coop
eration with a large number of so
cial work agencies.
University Band Is Off
To Flying Start for Year
The University of Oregon band
is off to a flying start this year.
Throughout the organization, in
every section, many new men have
come in, several of them are star
musicians in their own districts.
I There is a new surge and power
r to the band music this fall term—
1§ the zip and rhythm which does so
ft much toward rousing spirit and
enthusiasm in the stands.
In addition to the mechanical
I improvements in the band, John
| H. Stehn, conductor, has added
p several outstanding marches to
§ the repertoire of the group—
#; marches which are favorites the
« world over and which carry punch
f from start to finish.
The band will leave for Portland
| at 8 a. m. Saturday morning on
the rally train and will serenade
? the various hotels and business
houses in the downtown district in
addition to playing over the major
radio stations of Portland.
Some unusually spectacular
marching stunts will be put cm at
the game Saturday night and
throughout the entire weekend, the
band will do its best to instill into
the people of Portland, the stu
dents of the University and their
friends that carnival spirit of the
fall—the spirit of football.
Next week the band will make
a series of ballyhoo trips into rep
resentative centers of the state,
stirring up enthusiasm and interest
in the University and its football
The first trip will be to Bend,
Tuesday and on Wednesday they
will be in Salem.
All together, the band has one
of the busiest fall schedules cut out
for it in its history and this year,
more than any other, is it fitted to
shoulder the heavy responsibility
placed on it because of a better
quality of musicians, a wider se
lection of excellent numbers and
because at last, the old student
body membership friction seems
to havo been entirely removed from
the organization.
NYA Applications
For Student Relief
Far Exceed Jobs
With more than 1100 applica
tions filed with the University em
ployment office for federal em
ployment aid under the NYA,
which takes the place of FERA,
student relief organization last
year, the committee on NYA as
signments Was confronted with a
difficult task in allotting work,
according to Virgil D. Earl, dealt
of men.
As the University is only grant
ed $4?00 per month for this work,
only 350 of the applications could
be filled, and the job of selecting
the most worthy and needy cases
was no easy one. Dean Earl said.
All jobs for the fall term have been
assigned, the only remaining
chance of other applicants being
assigned work in the near future
being in case of defaults of regu
larly allotted work.
App'ication for work under the
NYA student relief, which enables
students to earn from $10 to $15
per month, in positions ranging
from typists, clerks, to gardeners
on the University campus, are filed
with Miss Janet Smith, employ
ment secretary. Selections are
made on a basis of need and of
grade point averages.
Frosh Class
40 % Larger
Than in 1934
That enrollment at the Univer
sity this year will far outdistance
all previous records is foretold by
all statistical information and
other indications at present avail
able. A 40 percent increase in the
freshman class this year as com
pared with fall term last year is
shown by a comparison of the
numbers who took psych and Eng
lish entrance examinations the two
years. The all-time record of ap
proximately 550 who had taken
the exams at this time last fall is
far exceeded by the total of 771
this year.
As more than 125 freshmen are
expected to enroll later in the
term, the entire class will probably
be close to 1000. Also if the in
crease in upper class enrollment
keeps pace with that of last year
the total attendance will closely
approach 3000. Last year’s atten
dance was 2498.
An increase in the total number
of transfers who took the entrance
tests is also shown by the com
plete figures from the psychology
department. Applications for
FERA work total 1100, an in
crease of more than 400 over the
complete number last fall. Figures
from the office of dean of men
and women also point toward a
much larger enrollment.
Another indication that the
final enrollment will exceed that
of last year lies in the scarcity of
housing accomodations in the vi
cinity of the campus. Board and
room signs are conspicuous for
their absence as compared with
last year’s registration week.
Donut Setup for
Intramural Sports
Told in Booklets
Students interested in intramur
al sports can obtain a copy of the
Intramural Sports handbook pub
lished by the school of physical ed
ucation telling of the donut s$tup.
The book contains the organiza
tion of intramural sports, regula
tions, by-laws, a sports report of
last year's activities, the intramur
al all-year point system and sug
gestions to intramural managers.
The past year has seen an in
crease of two per cent over 1933
34 . During the year 927 men have
participated a total of 2,308 times
in one or more of the 14 sports. T.
Blanchard, B. Parsons, and W. Van
Damm have played in as many as
8 out of the 14 events while Bill
Corman, D. Crosse, A. Miller, D.
Pelton, B. Seufert, and C. Suther
land have participated in a total of
! seven events.
Last year's competition found
the Phi Delta Theta on top with
the Yeomen a-close second, and
ithe Beta Theta Pi the champions
of the previous year, third.
Students may receive the new
book at the men's gym.

Oregon Rooters Prepare to
Mobilize Against Gonzaga
Plans are now completed for an
organized rooting section for the
Oregon-Gonzaga football game to
be held in Portland tomorrow eve
ning under the Kleig lights, and
with many students returning to
their homes for a brief week-end
interlude between Rush Week ac
tivities, and the opening of regular
classes on Monday, a large sized
crowd from the campus is ex
pected to be on hand to see Ore
gon’s sparkling re-vamped grid
iron machine swing into action for
its first game of the season.
Bill George, newly - appointed
Yell King, who has charge of all
rally arrangements for the game,
states that the rooting section will
consist of the best seats in the
Multnomah Stadium, right on the
center of the field, strung along
the 50-yard line. The entire new
Yell Squad plus those hard-work
ing, die-hards, the Rally Commit
tee, will be on hand en masse, to
keep that old Oregon spirit whip
ped into a frenzy.
A large slice of Portland’s foot
ball-minded population will be on
hand to witness the Rose City's
initial pigskin ruckus of the
season, judging from the advance
sale of tickets up there, and with
a good-sized turn-out from the
campus, on the side-lines, an en
thusiastic reception will greet the
promising Webfoots when they
tangle with the Bulldogs. All Ore
gon students attending the game
are requested to sit in the rooting
section and lend their support,
morally and vocally, to the lad3
down there on the field, who will
be having more than their hands
full, keeping Gonzaga well under
control, for the Bulldogs never
have been much of a set-up, and
this year may be no exception.
Special Train
A special football raily train will
be run to Portland for the Gonzaga
game, officials of the Southern Pa
cific Raiway company announce
The special will leave from Eugene
at 8 a.m., arriving in Portland at
11:30 a.m. and on the return trip
the train will leave Portland at mid
night and arrive in Eugene at 3:30
a.m. Tourist sleepers will be avail
able on the return trip and they
will be parked in Eugene for occu
pancy until 8 a.m. The cost of a
double lower is $1.25 and a double
upper $1.00.
With enrollment figures jumping Oregon is booming daily towards
a still greater University. Prospects for another outstanding athletic
year are increasing. Activity men from band through publications ara
looking forward to a banner year.
One of the strongest forces in a drive towards a still greater
Oregon is the united action of a full-strength student body.
If the student body does not have a full-strength organization it
means a loss to Oregon’s strength. Sports other than football would
have to be cut down or dropped, many worth-while activities, concerts
and lectures would have to be limited or perhaps cut off entirely, and
Oregon students as a whole would suffer.
On the other hand a 100 per cent students body membership
would be the strongest impetus behind a drive that would truly
establish a Greater Oregon. The ASUO offers a more than double
value card for $5 , . . the Emerald urges students to fall in step with
the march towards a Greater Oregon by purchasing their student
body curds at registration today.

No Hello Dance
The freshman Hello dance,
slated for Saturday night has
been definitely called off, it
was announced late last night.
Conflicts with the Goimiga
football game und the extra
load of rush week made it nec
sary to call off the dance. It
was thought at first the dance
could he held next Saturday
hut the Igloo had already been
spoken for so the dance has
been definitely called off. An

er of other dances to follow.
Honor Miss Gilbert
With Scholarship
Madeline Gilbert, graduate of the
University in 1935 and former Ore
gana editor, has been awarded a
coveted fellowship in the school of
social science administration of the
University of Chicago, it was an
nounced here recently. Miss Gil
bert plans to leave the latter part
of the month for her new school.
She has been working the past year
in Portland with the children’s de
partment of the Portland Welfare
With standards very high at the
University of Chicago the award is
a high tribute both to Miss Gilbert
and to the standards of Oregon.
A ringing appeal to the fast
growing student body of Greater
Oregon lias been issued by Cecil
Barker, chairman of the campaign,
urging united pledging of support
lo the associated students by sub
scribing for membership.
Coming immediately after his
appointment by Jim Blais, ASUO
president. Barker named a com
mittee of six to assist in insuring

Football Leads
Football will be the biggest
drawing card for students to sign
with fhe ASUO, but officials be
lieve that if it does not interest
the individual, there are sufficient
other attractions to make it prof
itable to become a member.
This includes a subscription to
the Oregon Daily Emerald, a re
duction in the prices of at least
one major dance, the particulars
of which will be announced later,
admission to several outstanding
concerts, and freshman football.
Voting privileges in class and
student body elections are also de
nied non-members. The election of
freshman class officers will be the
feature of fall term political activ
ities, and the first year students
have been strongly advised to en
ter into the fray.
The experience to be gained
working on the publications, the
Emerald and Oregana, is also held
by many as valuable. This privi
lege is extended only to members
of the associated students.

the California contest in Portland
students with cards will be admit
ted for $1, including tax. Others
must pay $1.65. In order to sit in
the rooting section at any of the
games, a student must have a

A Tale of Fraternity Life
In the Extreme Far West
Editor's note) The following is
an impressionistic recording of
rush week as enjoyed by Dick (sad
goose) Watkins an Hank (prima
donna) Hathaway.
(The Saga of ‘two nuggets on
the loose,’ or ‘How we got hooked,’
or -). ... Believe you me, those
boys in the I Tappa Keg house (on
stilts), are sure one swell bunch
of princes, if you know what we
mean. That hack they came
around to the dorm in to pick us
up, is the sweetest thing on wheels
we’ve seen since we put our bi
cycles in hock. And the chow!
. . . boyoboy, those beans they
dished out, .(we found out later
they were supposed to be Lima),
were the well-known McCoy, and
when we tossed them down the
hatch, they stayed tossed till
later. The silverware was not so
bad, considering that the lads told
us all their crested stuff was put
away for special occasions, . and
that these utensils they were us
ing were just a few to fill in .witlt
ifll the best hotels were repre
sented too, and even some of . the
forks were donated by t..o of the
best frats on the campus, so I
guess that ought to show how this
outfit rates around these parts.
Well, anyhow, we met all the
bros. and outside of a few seedy
ones, they looked O. K. Of course,
we expected to find pome like
that in most of the tongs, but just
why they kept them upstairs in
one of the rear porches, we don’t
know . . . guess they were kind
of shy, maybe.
The down stairs is sure fixed
up nice, and the fireplace didn't
smoke too much, till the furnace
popped out around 9:30, last night.
Upstairs, all the rooms looked like
honeys too, except those last two
we we happened to wander into by
mistake, which had a couple of
props against the rear wall, with
a few pans lying around the floor,
just in case it should ever rain
from that side, so the bros, said
ahyway. Well, another thing we
like about these I. T. K. fellers, is
the nice way they talk about the
other frats, especially that Eta
Beta Pj bunch across the street.
All they said against them the
whole time they were telling us
of them, was that they owed some
dough on a mortgage, and had to
pledge at least 40 new guys, or else
they'd fold up pretty soon, so now
we’re just as glad we didn’t go
around there for that luncheon
date we had with them, after all,
but let the I. T. K’s break it for
