Washington Sparks, Bruins Lose
Kenny Washington . . . UCLA colored halfback star is shown just after taking a pass from Harris
and on his way to the Bruins’ second touchdown. He is being chased in vain by Bob Smith and
Frank Emmons. Despite Washington’s ability and favorable betting odds, Oregon’s hard-charging line

Many Enroll
In Creditless
\Love Course'
A total of 200 students, 90 wo
men and 110 men, have enrolled
in a non-credit course in mar
riage at the University of In
diana this semester. The course
was first offered during the
summer session at the school
and proved so popular this fall
that an enrollment deadline had
to be set and all late enrollments
turned away.
A series of sixteen lectures
will be given by nine staff mem
bers from the University faculty.
Each will speak on a different
phase of marital relations.

Those who eat fast
Those who go hungry
Those who talk to the prof at
the end of the class
Those who get a C or less
Those who dance
Those who intermission
Those who work
Those who have pull
Those who are cold
Those who aren't.
—oparum uauy.
At the University of Califor
nia two freshman girls launched
a movement to abolish the sign
out and 2:30 lockout systems.
Advocates of a rule change
will present a plan to the Dean
of Women for “absolute free
dom’’ and prepare a petition to
be circulated on the campus.
They charge that house rules
“breed dishonesty and wide
spread rule breaking.” They
maintain that women disregard
ing the rules are the type who
leave college eventually because
of scholarship deficiency.
New Course Given
At University High
Beginning this fall, the Univer
sity high school is trying out, for
the first time in its history, cours
es in social living for those who
wish to take up student teaching.
The course is meant to give the
student experience in dealing with
problems which he meets in his
daily living.
The course, which is popular in
California, is just making an ad
vent into the institutions of Ore
gon. Howard Backus, the new su
pervisor in the University high
school is the instructor,
loss of eight yards to the UCLA
running attack.
UCLA’s passing and running
star, Kenny Washington, led the
losers in ground gained, carrying
the ball 12 times for a net gain
of 15 yards. He advanced the ball
33 yards, but lost 18. Five times
he failed to gain, and at no time
did he break away from a hard
tackling Duck team. His average
gain per play was 1.25 yards.
Failing to gain by running the
ball, and failing to connect con
sistently with his passes, Wash
ington turned to the role of re
ceiver. He speared one of Merle
Harris’ passes in the final quar
ter, and romped five yards to the
Uclan’s final score.
Oregon’s two touchdowns were
scored by Jim Nicholson on an off
tackle play from the three-yard
line in the, third quarter, and by
Ted Gebhardt on a pass from Jay
Graybeal in the fihal period.

Vic Reginato
Before Grand
Jury Thursday
Thursday the grand jury
meets, and not until then will
Vic Reginato, star Webfoot
right end, know where he stands
in the accident-death of Mrs.
W. R. Hall.
The grand jury will decide
whether the evidence warrants'
prosecution. Date of the jury
hearing was released yesterday
by District Attorney L. L. Ray.
Mrs. Hall, with her husband,
was struck Saturday evening at
the intersection of Eleventh and
Pearl, and died in the Sacred
Heart hospital four hours later.
Mr. Hall was still in the hospital
The city police report of the
accident states that Reginato
was traveling south on Oak
street and stopped at Eleventh,
where he turned left. He was
still in second gear at Pearl
when he struck Mr. and Mrs.
Hall, who were crossing Elev
enth on foot.
The case is in for considerable'
further investigation, District
Attorney Ray said. State police
investigating the case did not
determine where in the intersec
tion the couple was struck down,
and there are other factors
which may need more investiga
tion, Ray said.

University Citizens Told
Of Registration Methods
All University students of voting age are urged by Virgil D.
Earl to vote their party preference this year through the absentee
ballot. To do so, students must be registered by Saturday. For the
first time in the history of the school the administration is encour
aging students to make use of their voting privilege.
Students who wish to vote as absentee voters should use the
following procedure:
First, if the student is not registered in his home county he
may register with the county clerk of Lane county any time prior
to October 8. The clerk’s office will be open until 9 p.m. daily for
the convenience of college students.
Second, the student must write to the county clerk of his home
county for an absentee ballot.
Third, he marks his ballot in secrecy and then in the presence
of a notary public he places the ballot in an official envelope for
that purpose. There will be several notarials in Johnson hall, pro
vided by the administration, who will guarantee the validity of the
ballot to the student’s county clerk.
Fourth, the student mails the ballot to the county clerk of his
home county, thereby casting his vote. .
Students who are from other states may vote in the national
election but must write home to the proper officials for ballots.
They follow the same procedure of mailing their vote as in the third
and fourth step outlined above.
There will be no charge for notarial work, the only cost of
voting being the postage. *•

New Zest for Life
Needed Today, Say
Mission Speakers
Challange to Moderns Discussed Sunday
By E. Stanley Jones at Opening Program
Of University Christian Mission
A new zest tor me—call it Dy wnatever name you win—a new
philosophy or a new interpretation of life is the thing vitally needed by
people tooay. Although it was expressed in different ways, this
thought was advanced by the four speakers who yesterday led and1
today will lead opening meetings of the Unive*ity Christian Mission.
Speaking before 2500 persons Sunday evening E. Stanley Jones
presented a five-point program tor
which people of today are chal
lenged to work: Good news to the
poor—the economically disinherit
ed— that there shall be no poor;
release to the captives—the social
ly and politically disinherited; the
opening of the eyes of the blind— i
the physically disinherited; the
setting at liberty the bruised—the
morally and spiritually disinherit
ed—and the Lord’s Year of Jubi
lee —a new beginning on a world
scale—with the spirit of the Lord:
as the dynamic behind it all.
Three forums and an address
■were presented by the speakers
Ballard Speaks
Discussion of the relation be
tween modern liberal religion and
psychology started during the 4
o’clock forums guided by Dr. J.
Hudson Ballard, minister of the
First Presbyterian church in Port- j
One should use psychology as
one’s life guidance, he declared.
The marks of a sound mind as
pointed out by Dr. Ballard are a
celaned-up, a speeded-up, a poini;
ed-up mind. Two marks of an
ideal are: it is beyond you but not
impossible. The mind is more
plastic than any other part of the
body, Dr. Ballard said.
Advises on Marriage
Mrs. Grace Sloan Overton in her
discussion group on “Marriage in
a Changing Culture” urged stu
dents to obtain a new philosophy
of life to go with their more ad
vanced physical knowledge of life.
She listed four basic attitudes
toward marriage: the patriachal
attitude as illustrated by the
Orient; class distinction and the
advisability of sharply defining the
class lines; marriage of advan
tages; and the romantic marriage.
Modern misfortunes in relation to
marriage are divorce, pre-marital
relations, illegitimate children, and
fewer children in the higher

the clearest thinking in regard to

Special Train
To Palo Alto
Is Possibility
A special University of Ore
gon student train to Palo Alto
for the Stanford game Oct. 15
appeared a possibility last night
when it was learned that several
student backers were trying to
make such an arrangement.
A tentative price of $14.05 for
the round trip, exclusive of
meals and berth accommoda

'War' Class Unit
Enrollment Booms
Enrollment in the University
ROTC unit has surpassed that of
any previous years, according to
.Sergeant Frank I. Agule of the
military staff, who released the
figures yesterday.
The military unit has 837 men,
256 sophomores and 497 freshmen,
while the remainder are junior and
senior officers. Fully uniformed,
this group represents the largest
ROTC unit company in the history
of the school.
S'gnificant of the rating of the
local unit is the increased enroll
ment in advanced courses where
courses for third and fourth year
men have 84 students enrolled, an
increase of 14 over last year. These
men will be reserve army officers

Frosh Political Meet Set for Tonigh t
With a freshman class nominat

tonight in Villard hall by Zane
Kemler, ASUO vice-president, all
frosh political aspirants and their
aides hurriedly completed their
tickets yesterday and prepared
their blocs for the nearly final
At 11 o’clock last night the two
blocks remained virtually the same
as last week. Considerable dicker
ing was still going on, however, at
the midnight hour, and it appeared
likely that some radical changes
might be made, both in the per
sonnel of the tickets and in the
alignment of the blocs.
One ticket was announced as
being headed by Bob Sheets, Beta,
with a supporting cast including
Eleanor Sederstrom, Alpha Phi,
for vice-president, Kit Carson,
Hendricks hall, secretary, and
Mack Hand, SAE, treasurer.
This ticket was announced by a
block including the Betas, Chi Psis,
Kappa Sigs, Phi Delts, Fijis, SAEs,
Sammies, Sigma Chis, Sigma Nus,
and ATOs.
Tentatively listed on the other
ticket last night were Jack Dan
iels from the Delt house, Florence
Kinney, Susan Campbell hall, Bet
ty Jean De Armond, Tri Delt, and
Bob Calkins, men’s dorm.
This bloc includes the remaining
men’s houses, Delta Upsilon, Theta
Chi, Delt, SPE, Phi Sig, Phi Psi,
Pi Kap, and the dormitories, co
ops, and independents.
The prevailing impression at
press time, however, was that any
thing might happen before break
fast time this morning.

beginning his career as a chemistry
instructor, when he accidentally

friends, who were climbing the
mountain, delayed in descending
until after dark, and as it was a

In memory of Edgar McClure,
the class of 1901 dedicated the
