Allegedly because Germany, Italy
and Portugal have aided Spanish
insurgents, Russia yesterday in
formed the International Commit
tee for Neutrality in Spain that
her future actions in regard to the
Spanish situation would be entire
ly independent of the mandates of
the committee.
Russia's action was interpreted
by official sources to be a demand
for the right to supply arms to the
Leftist Spanish government.
Coincidental with Moscow’s ac
tion, Portugal yesterday broke dip
lomatic relations with the Spanish
government and recalled the Port
uguese charge d’affaires at Ali
cante, Spain.

Infirmary Yen,
Says Dr. Miller
i -
“The long list of infirmary pa
tients is nothing to be alarmed
over," according to Dr. Fred Miller,
head of the University health ser
vice. “Colds, like the poor, we al
ways have with us,” he said.
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.
Whether or not more students
are in need of medical attention or
are more willing to come to the
new hospital, we have had results
in keeping down campus colds, Dr.
Miller declared. ^
Emmett Gets Position

these Oregon men were prominent
while on the campus.

Judging from the rapidity with

Dancers to Appear

Goddard’s Bad Knee May
Keep W-SC Triple Threat
Out of Homecoming Game
A doggone nice fellow, this Eddie Goddard of Washington State.
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.

Reach Eugene
By automobile and railroad a
caravan of 52 Lakeview citizens
has come 376 miles to Oregon’s
Homecoming. The group, com
posed of 23 high school students,
their teachers, and their parents,
accompanied by several alumni
of the University, will be enter
tained during their visit by the
Order of the Antelope.
The Order of the Antelope is
an organization of Eugene peo
ple and members of the Univer
sity faculty interested in restor
ing the Hart Mountain game
preserve in the Lake county
The Lakeview Homecoming
caravan was organized by Forrest
Cooper, secretary of the Lake
view chamber of commerce, who
w'as formerly an Oregon student.
Opening feature of the enter
tainment planned for the visitors
is a breakfast at the Osburn
hotel this morning at 8:15. Dur
ing the meal C. Valentine Boyer,
president of the University, will
be made an honorary member of
the Antelope order. Following

on the football field, as anybody
that reads the newspapers might
know. 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

during the last half we had the

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.”

Washington State’s conference

‘Viber 8’ Makes
Last Official Bow
Toda y at Game
Easy Viber 8, much publicized
ASUO crate, will be driven for
the last time as the official lem
on and green heap, during the
halves of the WSC-UO game in
Hayward field today. President
Fred Hammond announced today
that ownership of the “8” would
be transferred to some member
of the student body.
The auto completely outclass
ed its rival, Greenough's phaeton,
in a short but fierce tug of war
in front of the law school yes
terday morning, Several hun
dred students paused between
classes to witness the struggle.
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. Hammond bowed as he
stepped from the seat of the
Viber. Greenough had a confi
dent sneer on his face.
After several minutes of tinker- '
ing, the drivers got both motors
running at the same time. They
slammed themselves into the
seats, after lashing the rear ends
of the cars together.
Both drivers stepped on the
gas. Then both engines died.
Finally they were started again.
Cheers arose from the spectators
as the Viber lunged down the
avenue, dragging the helpless
phaeton behind, with embarrass
ed Greenough at the wheel.

To Appear Monday
With a full program of musical

string quartet will appear Monday
night at the music auditorium at
8 o’clock in their second campus
The Abas quartet of Los An

certs in Eugene, three of which are
lor the University students only.
A special rate of 75 cents for both
performances will be made for the
two remaining appearances.
Dean Landsbury, of the school
of music, commented, “The Abas
quartet is, in my judgment, a
splendid organization. In genera',
a string group is regarded by many
people as the highest form of pure
music. It doesn’t appeal to the
gallery; rather, it satisfies primar
ily the desires of those whom I
would class as discriminating lis
The quartet, started by Nathan
Abas several years ago, is com
posed of Abas, Flori Gough, Hu
bert Sorensen, and Abraham Weiss.
Tickets for the concert can be
obtained at the music school.
Monday's program has not yet
been released.
