ASOSC President Pays Oregon Good Will Visit
Graham Offers
Plans Laid to Continue
Good Feeling, Friendly
Rivalry in Relations
Between Two Schools
Before a meeting in Villard hall
yesterday of University of Oregon
student leaders, a tall, broad-shoul
dered good will ambassador from
Oregon State, ASOSC President
Jack Graham extended greetings
from that school and offered co
operation in making this year’s
homecoming a success.
Graham, speaking slowly and in
comfortable tones, assured those
at the meeting that the extent of
the rivalry between both schools
was far overdrawn. He said that
at a proposed Oregon State convo
cation next Wednesday every ef
fort was going to be made to as
sure an understanding with the
students of the real, desirable at
titude of visiting Oregon Staters
who would, he declared, “conduct
themselves as ladies and gentle
Boyer Extends Welcome
Welcoming Graham, Dr. C. Val
entine Boyer, president of the Uni
versity, assured the group that “it
is impossible to take all of the bar
barism out of youth,” but that it
should be restrained by a common
sense of right and wrong.
Dr. Boyer cited the relationships
as they exist between Yale and
Princeton. "The two schools, while
the bitterest of enemies on the ath
letic field, conducted themselves as
hosts and guests on these occa
sions,” Dr. Boyer said. “There was
little unchecked, rampant enthu
siasm that resulted in vandalism
and savage demonstrations. "It is
of great importance to the two
schools that they do not break
down the pleasant relationship that
has been built up in the state in
the last few years.”
Graham, Blais Speak
Both Jack Graham and Jim
Blais who spoke on behalf of the
Oregon student body, were anxious
that the student bodies' of both
schools look upon some of the
cheap, narrow actions of individ
uals as not being representative of
the thoughts and attitudes of the
whole student bodies.
Jack Campbell, chairman of the
rally committee, told of elaborate
plans for a rally to be held Friday
night. Jim Blais entertained sug
gestions for a possible rally assem
bly prior to the game but nothing
was definitely decided.

Freshmen Given
Steadiness Test
Effect on Rifle Scores
Result of Experiment
Twenty-two freshman military
students were given the Seashore
steadiness test yesterday by R. M.
Martin, assistant to Professor
Howard Taylor of the psychology
The experiment is being conduct
ed by the psychology department,
through the cooperation of Colonel
Murphy, head of the ROTC. It will
continue during the next two
weeks until Mr. Martin has given
about 100 tests.
The subject gets two trials. Us
ually the scores are nearly the
same, although the second is often
slightly higher, Mr. Martin said.
Not much can be learned about the
results of the experiment until the
results are compared with the rifle
scores of the subjects. This will
not take place until next term.
Freshmen had their first drill
with rifles last Wednesday. Drill
today was cut short, due to the
cold weather. All three military
periods will be given over to drill
next week, in preparation for the
Armistice day parade.

Winter Reigns
As Early Cold
Siezes Coast
Lingering leaves of summer
showered from the trees on the
campus yesterday as King Winter
continued to clutch the state in hi3
icy grasp. The light snow which
fell early Thursday morning had
practically disappeared yesterday
afternoon as scattered rays of sun
shine once more descended. Snow
still remains in outlying districts.
Little promise of more favorable
weather conditions was held as re
ports predicted “colder and unset
tled" weather today and tonight.
The coldest spell in history for so
early in the year gripped the West.

Huestis Studies
Field Mice Traits
Experiments with field mice are
again being conducted this year by
R. R. Huestis, professor of zoology,
at the research shack on the cam
The mice are being bred for the
purpose of obtaining unnatural
hereditary results. Field mice are
being used exclusively because
they are tamer than the ordinary
house mice.
The chief difference between the
two species is that the field mice
have large ears and eyes while the
ordinary mouse has small ears and
eyes in comparison.
Much work accompanies the ex
perimental process; the mice must
be fed, their cages must be cleaned
every two weeks, they must be
kept free from disease which
spreads rapidly among them.
These mice are classified as to
color, former breed, and size.
