Joe Gray and Little Johnny Alexander, some dark secrets on how to cross that Oregon .goal line before
the final gun sounds Saturday afternoon. Gray and Alexander are recognized by coast experts as two of
the trickiest and fastest backs in conference circles.

Who's a Pirate?
Declaring that British warships
will fire on Spanish rebel gunboats
as “pirates” if they interfere with
English merchant vessels, Foreign
Minister Anthony Eden last night
delivered Britain's reply to Span
ish insurgent threats to destroy
Barcelona if arms shipments to the
Madrid government continue.
Eden’s position on the “pirate”
stand was secure because England
has recognized neither side in the
Spanish conflict as a belligerent,
and any molestation of her com
merce must be regarded in that
light, according to international
law, informed sources said.

‘‘Oh, that Mrs. Simpson!”
Because of this single line spok

feature, "Libeled Lady,” the en
tire production has been banned by
the British censor, according to
the California Daily Bruin.
In spite of the pleas of the pro
ducer that it was purely coinci

insists the line was included delib
erately, and has banned the film
in totality, not even allowing a
substitute line to be “dubbed in”
in place of it.

New Libe Opening Delayed
Till Spring Term; Contract,
Labor Snags Hold Up Work
Dogged by delay, the new library will probably not be open until
spring term, it was learned Friday from M. H. Douglass, librarian.
Contract difficulties, lack of materials, labor shortage, and strike
conditions have all contributed to put the opening of the $365,000 struc
ture already nearly four months behind schedule. Further delays,
Douglass fears, will make it unfeasible to occupy the biulding until
spring term. I,-•,
At the present time, lighting
fixtures, some plumbing, and much
of the finishing work remains un
done. It is considered advisable,
Douglass said, to allow plenty of
time for completion rather than to
rush work and hava it poorly done.
Contract Conflict
Removal of part of the present
metal stacks to the new building
is stipulated in the contract, which
cannot be accepted until this
change has been made. The con
flict and resulting delay comes,
however, in the lack of a place to
store the books now in these stacks
while the transfer is being made,
Douglass explained.
Progress is being made in the
placing of art works. A wood carv
ing nearly six feet in length is in
place in the graduate reading
room. Decorated, wrought - iron
gates, complimenting the Italian
black and white effect of the mar
ble walls, guard the inner gate
ways of the main entrance. Stairs
and hand rails are also of marble.
Stacks May Expand
Roominess in the stacks leaves
plenty of space for future expan
sion. According to W. C. Warren,
reserve librarian, the building will
not be stocked to capacity for ten

Emerald Sports Editor
It’s the 40th Big Game.
No conference championship will be at stake, no Rose Bowl
glory will be the reward, but when football teams of Oregon
and Oregon State tear into each other on Corvallis’ Bell field
this afternoon all the fire and bitterness of a battle for the title
of a dozen leagues will be unleashed.
It starts at 2 o’clock and by that time Bell field will be run
ning over with humanity. The Webfoots and Beavers are at the
bottom of the coast conference, but a capacity throng is assured
for what to the state of Oregon is THE game.
On paper, Oregon is an underdog
today. But when these rivals of
almost half a century fling grid
iron forces into traditional war
fare, there isn’t any dope or any
form. They're bettin on Oregon
State in the wise circles, but in
wiser company the wags are keep
ing sheckels safe in their pock
Bine Is Best
Today’s game will find an Ore
gon line comparable with the best
on the coast meeting an Oregon
State offense which crushed Wash
ington State and outplayed Stan
ford. Captain Del Bjork of the
Webfoots and Jumping Joe Gray
of the Beavers are the men to
Del Bjork will be playing for
the last time in Oregon green, and
this will be his final shot at all
American recognition. Joe Gray is
a junior, but his passing arm is
on a par with the best.
Stop the Ghost
Oregon must stop Gray today,
and Oregon State must breaek
through or over the Webfoot line
which Bjork leads. All week
Prince Gary Callison, Oregon head
coach, has primed his team on de
fense against a Beaver passing at
tack which doomed Washington
State and gave Stanford the'fight
of half a dozen seasons. The mir
acle right arm of Gray heaves th<
leather, and the glue-like fingers
of Joe Wendlick, Don Coons, and
Tommy Swanson nab it. That’s
what the Beavers do if allowed half
a chance. Oregon’s task is to
bar them from that chance.
The Ducks, not the desperate
Ducks but the determined Ducks,
will hurl the ball high, wide, and
far also. A spectacular battle of
overhead barrages is assured.
