Sophomore Webfoots
1 Face U C L A Eleven
On Los Angeles Turf
Rowe, Reginato, Jensen, Smith Given
Cliancf to Start; Billy Bob Williams Is
Slated to Carry Bruin Offensive
An ambitious, sophomore-tinged
University of Oregon eleven will
face Coach Bill Spaulding’s UCLA
Bruins on Los Angeles turf to
night to officially inaugurate 1937
Pacific Coast conference football.
Prink Callison's stout-hearted
Webfoots enter tonight’s fray as
a definite dark-horse team, fired
to establish themselves as better
than a second-division aggrega
tion. Hanging in the atmosphere
of the immense Coliseum will be
memories of last season's bitterly
fought game in Portland, which
the Bruins won, 7 to 0.
Veterans are expected to dot
Oregon’s starting lineup as the
team receives its first test under
fire, but silent Prink is expected
to run his fiery sophomore lads
into the fray before many minutes
have passed.
Five lettermen in the line and at
least two in the backfield are fig
ured certain to open the contest.
The other four may be “vow-boys”
from Honest John Warren’s crack
3 936 frosh eleven. The same situa
tion faces Spaulding, although
three of his vets are in the back
field. All Uclan worries are in the
Oregon will be facing its only
California “non-jinx” opponent of
recent years. Nine times the Ducks
nave met UCLA since relations
started in 1928, and Oregon has
won six of them. Oregon dropped
the last two, however. Against
other southern teams a 21 to 13
affair against California back in
1926 is the last Webfoot triumph.
If Prink starts all veterans, the
forward wall will look like this:
Ends—John Yerby and Bud Rob
ertson: tackles—Bill Foskett and
Bill Estes; guards—Captain Tony
Haile Selassie) Amato and Joe
Huston; center—Vernon Moore. It
is very possible that sophomores
Elroy Jensen and Vic Reginato at
right tackle and right end might
get the nod.
Hank Nilsen, the Astoria boy,
who was switched from end to the
backfield for blocking duty, is
slated to start at quarterback
flanked by speedboy Jimmy Nich
olson, the one year letterman at
left half. Flashy Bob Smith, a dan
gerous southpaw passer and block
er, at right half, and the Cana
dian dynamo, Paul Rowe, at full
back, are a pair of sophomores
who may get the call.

First Year Law
Class Increases
Dean Morris Surprises Law
Review Board Willi New
Figures from the first day of
registration at the law school indi
cated that there will be a 10 per j
cent increase in this year's fresh

Dean Morris surprised the stu
dent editorial board of the Oregon
Law Review by providing them
with an office which is in room
109 Oregon. There are individual j
desks for the board members.
Seminar meetings as well as board
meetings will be held in the office.
In commenting on the new quar
ters Dean Morris stated that the
expansion of the law review dur
ing the past five years made it
impossible to continue with the
cramped and inadequate facilities
with which the law review has had
to contend. It is ndt only the of
ficial publication of the law school
but also the official publication
of the Oregon State Bar associa
Dean Morris stated that the Re
view has gained recognition as
one of the best 10 law reviews in
the country. “In fact,” he said, “in
proportion to the number of stu
dents the Oregon Law Review has
a larger student section than any
other Review." He gave a great
deal of credit for the high caliber
of the work to the leadership of the
faculty editor.
Dean Morris emphasized that
faculty members as well as stu
dent members are entitled to
credit for the quality of the work.
All material in the Oregon Law
Review must be approved by the
faculty editorial board and stu
dent writings for the review must
be presented at law review sem
inars for faculty approval.

Council Faces
New Problems
Unfair Rushing Spiked;
Houses Will Release All
Bids Saturday
With rush week rapidly nearing
the finish on Saturday afternoon,
(nly two problems had been
brought to the attention of the in
terfraternity council late yester
day. Many houses were reported
to be abusing the privilege of
breaking undesirable dates through
the council clearing-house, and
hot-boxing rushees by giving the
false impression that Friday
night will be preference night.
“A definite attempt to spike
that unfair rumor, being practiced
by several houses, is being made,”
stated council president Ed Reames
yesterday, "and any cases reported
will be taken before the council
tribunal set up to handle these
trials with little delay."
Meanwhile .preference night was
held in all sororities last night.
Girls will receive their bids be
tween ten and twelve o'clock Sat
urday morning at the dean of wom
en’s office.
Reames emphasized the impor
tance of explaining to rushees the
exact details of preference day,
Saturday afternoon, as soon after
all morning dates as possible, the
registration windows at McArthur
court will be opened and each man
will number his three choices of
houses, and then be notified if he
was bid to the house of his first
choice. If not, he is not bound to
pledge the house of his second
choice, and may wait one week be
fore again making his preference.
Following which, he may wait and
have rushing dates for one month
before again making preference.
Rushing dates after this week will
be on the same plan, but not
handled through the council.

oo() Register on Opening
Day; ASUO Card Sale
Demand Tops Former
Drive Records
Skyrocketing to a npw member
ship high, the ratio of registering
students signing up idith the
ASUO rose to 75 per cent yester
day, topping in one day the en
tire fall term average of the 1936
school year.
Due to the extended two and a
half day registering period, Ore
gon’s 3100 students were slow in
making the rounds at McArthur,
with only 800 registering. A late
release of frosh registration ma
terial, which did not appear until
yesterday morning, was also
blamed for the figure. Fifteen
hundred students are expected to
go through today, according to
Cliff Stalsbcrg, university cashier.
A surprise came to the class
card sale dopesters when the
sophomore card sales topped the
frosh sales for the first time in
years. However, it is not expected
the sophomores can maintain their
lead in the face of the overwhelm
ing frosh class membership.
Oregana Sales Up
Oregana sales went up to 604,
just four more being sold than
student body cards. The average of
Oregana sales also tops last year’s
average, it was learned from Zollie
Volchok, assistant activities man
The $15 full-year student body
membership cards sold more in
the first day than the entire fall
term of last year, reaching a high
of 290, George Root said.
First Card Sold
The first ASUO card was sold
at 8:03 a. m. yesterday to Morti
mer Heinrich, by the drive co
chairman Peggy Vermillion.
Yesterday found the upperclass
men offering a Junior-Senior
dance free to card holders as an
added attraction to prospective
class members, with the usual class
activities. Sophomores were busy

Terse ‘Metier-Dramer’
Depicts Registration
A tragedy in two acts.
Scene: McArthur court, eight o'clock yesterday morning.
Act 1: When the curtain rises, the place is deserted. Sheets of
mist rise from the paper-littered tables. A silence broken only by a
faint off-stage mumbling is heard. Suddenly two or three hundred
advisors in pajamas and night caps stumble slowly into the room
rubbing their eves. They take their nlaces at the tw vniniv
for a moment to sort papers, and -
then in an agony of exh-.ustion
they drop their heads to the table
and sleep.
A moment later there is a tre
mendous crash, the doors of Mc
Arthur court fall in, and thou
sands of students burst screaming
into the hall.
They halt for a moment, study
the signs above the desks, and ,
surge onward. The rest of the act
is confusion. Coeds faint, are
trampled over by the men, desks
collapse, and the advisors from .
time to time become hysterical and
run shrieking from the room.
The hero enters. He is a fresh- .
man. He wanders from station to :
station, giving the professors tick- ]
ets which they glance at, and
either laugh at or throw away. The <
hero, bewildered, asks information i
which no one seems able to an
swer. He tries to get through the 1
tables, and each person at each ta- 1
ble takes ten dollars out of his <
wallet. Uttering low moans he ap
proaches the tuition window. He is i
attacked and beaten and the wal
let is thrown over the counter.
One of the advisors suddenly
?oes berserk. He tackles the hero,
:ears the red book to bits, and the
lero in a panic rushes out into the
The orchestra plays. The scene
becomes wilder and wilder. The
nusic, Festival at Bag-dad, surges
>n to a terrific climax. The cur
;ain falls amid flying papers, sob
bing men, and trampled women.
Act II: The basement of Mcr
Arthur court. It is night.
Absolute blackness — utter si
ence, though every half hour or
10 a low, hopeless moan can be
aintly heard coming from under a
>ile of dirty football sweaters.
As the moon rises, the scene be
:omes slightly brighter. The hero
ises weakly. He falls. He rises.
This goes on indefinitely.) Then
o the music of Ase’s death, the
lero screams in misery and falls
lying to the floor.
(Editor’s note: The third act is
nuch better.)
