Fails to Pass, 2 to 3;

Almost Hour
The proposal to have an Ore
gon drum majoress went down
by a 3 to 2 count in a meeting
of the student affairs commit
tee yesterday.
In a session which lasted a
full 50 minutes instead of an
expected 10 minutes, the mea
sure submitted by the student
executive committee lost out by
the margin of one vote.
The five members of the com
mittee, Dean of Men Virgil Earl
being the presiding officer did not
vote, heard petitions both for and
against the proposal. When a final
vote was taken, Dean of Women
Hazel P. Schwering, Elizabeth
Stetson, and Carlton Spencer voted
against the proposal while Harry
Weston, student body president,
and Orlando J. Hollis expressed
themselves as in favor of it.
Spencer Explains Stand •
Mr. Spencer’s was the deciding
vote. In explaining his stand in
voting against the coed drum
majoress idea he issued the fol
lowing statement to the Emerald:
“I have no objection to girl drum
majoresses. I think they add color
and zest to a rally band. However,
if the women of the University do
not want to be represented in the
rally band by an outside ’girl drum
majoress, they should not have
them forced upon them. The AWS
is the official association of the
women of the University, author
ized to speak in their behalf."
No Evidence Seen
‘‘There was no evidence in this
instance that the AWS was not
speaking authoritatively, and con
sequently its request was entitled
to respect. If there was any doubt,
a determination should be arrived
at after a vote or after an open
hearing in which the tribunal
charged with making the decisions
could be advised."
Campus leaders of the plan
caught the ray of hope in the last
part of Mr. Carlton’s statement
and late last night were laying
plans to bring the matter to a vote
or in some way prove that student
reaction on the campus is almost
entirely in favor of the proposal.
If these plans go through, leaders
indicated, a new hearing will be
UO Not Only
School With
Girl Ruckus
Other colleges are having their
troubles over the girl yell leader
question. The University of Texas
after long wrangling this fall final
ly elected two women yell leaders
to help out at football games.
In a recent debate between fac
ulty members and students over
whether the University of Geor
gia should have girl yell leaders,
the dean of women announced, “It
is incompatible to put women stu
dents in the present cheering sec
tion, for I will never stand for vul
gar ostentation of womanhood for
stadium excitement."
Tell Us, Too
The referee called a penalty on
Furman U.’s gridders and started
pacing it off. “What’s he doing
now,’’ growled a Furman rooter, j
“penalizing us for telling a dirty
joke in the huddle?”

Give the patient, hard-working,
contented cow credit for making
modern photography a success!
The secret of how the bovine
contributes through her hoofs to
the art of picture-making was re
vealed recently by Dr. Lawrence
S. Foster of the chemistry depart
ment at Brown, university.
Dr. Foster declared the genius
of the cow does not lie so much
in its milk-manufacturing capaci
ties as in its hoofs. The hoofs are
lubricated with a certain kind of
mustard oil which contains silver
■Silver sulphide is a tremendous
aid in developing a latent image,
which, Dr. Foster explained, is the
secret of modern photography.

To the exciting mounting tempo
of a Bach fugue, the University
symphony orchestra under the di

platform in the music auditorium.
It was the first concert of the sea
son for the orchestra, and a very
successful one, too, if audience ap
preciation is any indication.
Two selections from the ever
popular Tschaikowsky were among
the most melodius played. The
first, a haunting waltz from the

Objection Raised to Committee
Vote on Drum Majoress Question
At a special meeting- of the interfraternity council last night at the Theta Chi house, a resolution was
passed objecting to the vote taken yesterday by the student affairs committee on the drum majoress
The objection was made on the grounds that the decision of the student affairs committee did not
truly represent student opinion, and that the men of the campus had no opportunity to offset the nega
tive vote of the Associated Women Students. It was the unanimous opinion of the group that inasmuch
as the women students are repre
sented on the student affairs com
mittee, the men as a group should
also be represented, with President
Harry Weston representing the
Associated Students as a whole.
The meeting was called for the
purpose of discussing proposed
changes in the rushing system, and
it was only after a lengthy discus
sion of rushing that the drum ma
joress question was brought up.
Open rushing, closed rushing,
and alterations of the present rush
week were talked over, as was the
policy of the University of requir
ing all freshmen, once having
moved into the dormitories, to re
main there for the entire year.

Amateur Radios Replace
Phones in Australia, Says
Visitor From Down Under
Amateur radio sets take the place of telephones in relaying news
to the outlying districts of Australia, Don Ingram-Smith, announcer
over radio station 2GB, in Sydney, Australia, informed Donald E.
! Hargis’ class in radio program production, yesterday.
Mr. Smith, who has been touring the United States for the past
three months in. connection with the world youth congress, said that
m Australia tnere is greater di
versity in radio programs because
they seek entertainers from Ger
many, England, France and other
foreign countries. “George Col
man, a brother to your screen ac
tor, Ronald Colman, is one of
Australia’s leading radio come
dians,” he said.
Schools in Australia offer no
courses in radio training, Mr.
Smith continued, so students in
terested in that field must acquire
their education through actual ex
“In our radio stations we often
get requests from truck drivers,"
Mr. Smith remarked, who want
music while they work.”
All prospective teachers for
next year who plan to avail
themselves of the services of
the University teacher place
ment service in obtaining teach
ing positions are asked to meet
on Monday, November 28, at 4
p.m., in room 4 Education. This
announcement was issued yes

Oregon, OSC
Vie Saturday
For NW Title
Battle in Portland;
Webloot Scoreless
Since 1935; Game
Always Thriller
The football supremacy of the
Northwest will be the prix de
guerre when the gridiron forces of
Oregon and Oregon State College
clash on the Multnomah stadium
field in Portland Saturday in the
annual "civil war” classic.
Both teams hold victories over
Washington and Washington State,
and both have lost to California,
and Southern California. The re
sult is that football experts have
declared this game a toss-up with
a slight edge going to the defen
sively powerful Beavers.
In 41 games extended over a
54-year period of rivalry, the
Ducks have won 23, lost 11, and
tied 7.
Game Unpredictable
But records and performances
mean little in this game. Anything
can happen and anything imagin
able often does. No matter what
the past records are, Webfoots and
Beavers are on a par for the “civil
Not since 1936 have Oregon's
helmet heroes won from or even
scored on the Beavers from Cor
vallis. In 1935, the Ducks pound,
ed out a 14 to 0 victory on Hay
ward field, but in 1936, the Stiner
men swamped the Webfoots, 18 to
0, and last year, Joe Gray, Elmer
Kolberg and Co. pushed over two
touchdowns in the last five min
utes to win a hard-fought encoun
ter, 14 to 0.
Seven Seniors
Seven Olivermen will be mak
ing their last appearances in Ore

parting seniors are Jimmy Nichol
son, brilliant speedboy halfback;
Ted Gebhardt, the Vallejo triple
threater; Hank Nilsen, tow-head
quarterback from Astoria; Nello
Giovanini, rugged guard from
Klamath Falls; Bill Foskett, big
tackle from California; John Yer
by, hard-blocking end from Port
land; and Bud Robertson, slim
wingman from Albany.
It's a Boy',
Says Former
Emerald Editor
Mr. and Mrs. Robert W. Lu
cas of Astoria, are the parents
of a 7-pound boy born in that
city November 21. Mr. Lucas is
a graduate of the University and
was editor of the Emerald in
1935-36. He is now employed at
the Astoria-Budget in Astoria.
Mrs. Lucas, the former Peggy
Chessman, is also a grad of U.
of O. She was also queen of the
Astoria Regatta one year.
Lucas, who writes a column
called “Fan Chants,” filled his
column with the following on the
eventful day, spreading it all the
way to the bottom:

Dean Jewell Recommends
Happiness in Vocation
How would you like to spend the next 40 years doing something
you dislike very much? Then don’t prepare to spend those years
at a job you don’t like, is the warning of Dean J. R. Jewell of tibe
I school of education.
Any life insurance company is willing to gamble that a person
of 19 or 20 will live about forty years,’ more, the dean points outt
| What, then, is the average individual to do in the approximate half
century stretching before him?
“The answer,” says Dr. Jewell, “is to find what you want to do
that will make you happy, prepare to do that thing, and then do it.
But preparation doesn’t always mean going to college, he declared.
However, if what you want does mean attending a university, by
all means enroll in one and get through even at a sacrifice.”
Education for Happiness
Education is helping a given person do what he wants to do,
according to the dean’s definition, and since 40 years is a long
time to be doing something one doesn’t enjoy doing, every one
should find a goal early in life and spend his time in attaining that
Being thankful for 40 years to come is what Dean Jewell urgea,
and he will further expound this theme Wednesday night when he
speaks to the boys of Cottage Grove high school.
