Poll It
The returns on the Literary Di
pest poll are beginning to come in.
It would be nice for the Republi
cans if the returns were conclu
sive, but for a while at least there
will be no call to strike up the
band.
Georgia. Oklahoma. Iowa, Kan
sas and Missouri are the states
which have voted thus far. The
first two wrent pro-Roosevelt pol
icy bv slim margins, the last three
anti-Roosevelt policy by equally
slender margins. Result: 53.28 per
cent of the votes cast so far an
swer negatively the Digest ques
tion, ‘‘Do you NOW Approve the
Acts and Policies of the Roosevelt
‘New Deal’ to Date?”
What It Moans—
Just what does this poll mean?
Nothing so far as the re-election
of the man with the smile is con
cerned. It is fairly accurate, yes.
It has a fine record of successful
auguries. To be sure. But this
poll is worded in such a way as
to elicit negative votes. ‘‘Do You
NOW Approve the Acts and Poli
cies of the Roosevelt 'New Deal’
to Date?” All inclusive is that
question, and it is limited to “acts
and policies.” Many people will
vote for Mr. Roosevelt who don’t
approve of his policies. Many will
vote for him who don’t approve of
the New Deal in any respect. They
will vote for Roosevelt the man.
That is the fault of this latest poll
—it is not a vote on candidates.
Above All
Much more serious in the eyes of
the President and his political
seers than magazine polls is the
buffeting of Administration laws
at the hands of the courts. The
AAA, the Utility Act, and the
Guffey Coal Act will all ultimate
ly pass in review before those nine
stern-visaged old men. The Agri
culture Adjustment Act is already
in the court. The others are on
their way up after being beat to
their knees by a barrage of lower
court reversals. Whether the fan
ning. of the New Deal seconds will
be good enough to carry them
through the final round is a ques
tion puzzling the seconds more
than anyone else.
Backbone
These acts are the very back
bone of the present Administra
tion. The real question then haunt
ing the recently renovated house
of the Chief Executive is just what
condition that backbone will be in
when the chiropractors of the Su
preme Court finish kneading it—
not how his policies are going to
stack up in a straw vote.
Dahlberg Goes
To Cottage Grose
In an effort to further advance
the campaign for the sale of
Christmas seals, Dr. W. A. Dahl
berg, of the speech department
and also Lane county chairman of
the Oregon Tuberculosis associa
tion, will speak before a general
audience at Cottage Grove, Mon
day, November 25, on the subject
of “Public Health.”
According to Dr. Dahlberg, an
active seals sale campaign will be
started immediately following the
Thanksgiving holiday, with the
contact of living organizations as
as active part of the program.
Ontliank to Continue
Discussions Sunday
Dean Karl Onthank will lead a
discussion of the ‘'Fine Art of Liv
ing" at the morning group at 9:45
Sunday at Westminster house. This
is the third in a series of discus
sions on religion and the develop
ment of personality.
Everett Cole will lead a discus
sion for the forum at 6:30, with a
solo by Keith McMillan. A tea at
6 will precede the forum.
Six thousand miles from home

increasing amount of gifts to col

Gilbert’s Finance
Article Is Printed
Dr. James H. Gilbert, professor
of economics, had a three page
article entitled “Probable Trends
in Municipal Finance” published in
the November issue of the month
ly magazine “Western Cities.”

the startling statement that mu

the state and national expenditures
in the past 25 years.
He ascribed this to increased
growth of cities, but predicts a
stablizing of growth in the future,
in all but the western cities. He

develop in the future when the

many undeveloped resources of the
West.

Oregon on Short
End of Odds for
Battle Today With
Northern Eleven
Bv PAT FRIZZELL
Oregon's Webfoots and Wash
ington’s Huskies will clash on the
turf of the University of Washing
ton stadium at Seattle this after
noon in a 30th renewal of the Pa
cific Northwest’s greatest gridiron
classic.
When the opening whistle sounds
at 2 p. m. the football champion
ship of the northwest will be on
the block. As if the victory alone
were not enough, to the winner of
today's titanic struggle also goes
undisputed title to pigskin suprem
acy in Oregon, Washington, Ida
ho, and Montana.
Both Teams on Edge
As always in this biggest tilt of
all, both Webfoots and Huskies are
on edge, stamping at the bit, ready
to knock each other off the foot
ball horizon. Everything in the
book has happened in previous
Oregon-Washington games and
anything may today.
Washington is a definite favor
ite. As to that there is no ques
tion, for the Huskies have on pa
per a more potent aggregation
than the Ducks and everywhere
they are being quoted on the long
end of 2-to-l odds.
Ducks Planning llpset
Odds are nothing at all to Prink
Callison’s crunching crew, how
ever, and the Ducks have definite
plans of knocking the vaunted
Husky from his pedestal and pack
ing his pelt back to Eugene.
Loss of Lief Jacobsen, expected
to start at right end, who under
went an operation for appendicitis
yesterday, will merely spur the
Webfoots to greater heights. Budd
Jones, regular all season at the
right wing spot, may be able to
work most of the game. If he
can’t, elongated Leonard Holland
is on hand.
Power vs. Deception
All indications point to a strug
gle between tremendous power and
tricky, deceptive speed. Oregon,
led by Frank Michek and Bob
Braddock, will furnish the power
element, while Washington, with
rubber-armed Byron Haines and
Jimmy Cain in leading roles, will
supply the deception.
A punting duel between Ore
gon’s Stan Riordan and Washing
ton’s Elmer Logg, two of the most
proficient artists of the boot in the
nation, is certain to be one of the
main attractions of the contest.
Their marvelous toes may turn
the tide of victory either way.
Last Conference Game
For both elevens, it will be the
season’s final conference engage
ment. At least 30,000 fans are ex
pected to turn out to witness the
grand finale of northwest gridiron
activity for 1935.
Probable starting lineups:
Oregon Washington

Bjork .LT. Bond
