from the ceiling in order to insure

Gold! Band Needs U.C, ’sSong
"Please, Mister, could you tell
me the official California song—
they change so often," might very
well be the theme song of the
"Mighty University of Oregon
Band” and of John H. Stehn, con
ductor, judging by the 15 minute
conference that was held in the
band' room last night. The entire
group sat in awed silence when
Stehn propounded the question.
Various songs were suggested
including a grand entry march by
Oregon of “California Here We
Come!" but no one was exactly
So the band tried rousing school
song after song (because "John"
has been collecting them from
month to month, as fast as Cali
fornia turns them out). Two
sounded like funeral dirges and
the rest were—school songs.
At any rate the band has tried
them all and when and if somebody
tells them which is the real Mc
Coy, they are set.
The band, snappy in new uni
forms, will leave Eugene on the
12:20 train this morning along
with the team and any others
whose class schedules don’t con
According to the present plan,
the band will march from the Un
ion station into Portland, take up
its temporary residence at the Im
perial hotel and then during the
evening, will serenade down-town
Portland, appear at banquets, the
aters and radio stations, ending up
at the big Oregon rally some time
between 10:30 and 11 p. m.
A good selection of new num
bers has been added to the band’s
repertoire and it is expected that
their showing will be one of the
finest the University and Port
land have ever witnessed.
