The number of patients receiv ing care in the new building proves the necessity of the additional ser vice. At all time this year, Dr. Mil ler said, the infirmary has serviced more students than the old system was capable of housing.

A potential All-American with a quiet, friendly smile, direct brown eyes, and a pleasing personality doesn’t make sense, when one thinks in terms of vicious blocks and tackles of the^gridiron, but this chunky five foot eight and a naif inch blond seems to fill the order. Besides appearing to be the kind of a fellow you’d want your sister' 5 2 L ake view 6H omecomers9 Reach Eugene By automobile and railroad a caravan of 52 Lakeview citizens has come 376 miles to Oregon’s Homecoming.

He can run, pass, and kick the ball like nobody’s business. In the game with Southern Cal last week, on as rainy a day as one would find in the Northwest, he averaged 42 yards on his punts. He says he prefers to run with the ball more than anything else. “I think we should have beaten them,” he declared, speaking of the USC game. “We had more oppor tunities to win than they did, and during the last half we had the ball in their territory most of the time.” ••navis is uooa ’ “Yes, Davis is a good back, there is no doubt about it. But they’ve three quarterbacks down there, with each almost as good as the other. They can all kick, pass, and run. I don’t think the fact that Davis was out of the game, made any difference in the outcome,” he said. Goddard will play with an in jured knee in today’s game with the Webfoots. He was hurt when, playing safety, he was catching a Southern Cal punt. Hit Hard ‘‘I had just caught it, when three fellows hit me like a ton of brick, and my knee flew out of joint.” He smiled a trifle. “I’ll bet you fellows are glad, too, aren’t you?” he winked. This is Goddard’s last year of football, and as would be expected, scouts for professional baseball and football teams are hanging like vultures about the grid star. “Play pro football?” He shook his head. “I don’t know. I don’t intend to play any more football unless I have to. I’d just as soon play baseball. I wouldn’t get bunged up so easily.” Ed was playing outfield on Washington State’s conference winning baseball club, last year. He might play pro baseball.

Drivers Fred Hammond and Tallant Greenough raced the vehicles from their parking places on Kincaid street shortly after 9 o’clock classes were dis missed.
