U# OF 0. LIBRARY campus _ Oregon Prepares for Grid Clash at UCLA; Ducks Doped to Win ©reoon ©mcralD Frances Brockman Added to Fall Term ASIIO Concert Series VOLUME XXXIX UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 24, 1937 NUMBER 2 ASUO Sales Hit New First-Day High 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 By ELBERT HAWKINS 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 line. 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. Colorful, slashing Billy Bob Williams, who rates high among (Please turn to page three) First Year Law Class Increases Dean Morris Surprises Law Review Board Willi New Office 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 man class. During the day 19 first year law students registered. This is the third successive year that there has been no turnover in the law school faculty, Dean Wayn L. Morris pointed out, which assures J greater continuity of school pol icies. 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 tion. 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.

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 ager. 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.

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 iarkness. 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.) Coitain.
