Without the use of horseshoes,
rabbits’ feet, or other special aids,
the sophomores come off with the
surprise catch of the fall dance
season in the signing of Mojica to
play for Saturday’s dance.
Mojica Bnsse Pupil
T Mojica (Mo-hee-Ka), whose mu
sical apprenticeship was spent
under Henry Busse, comes north
fresh from a 2i-week engagement
at San Francisco’s El Patio ball
room. Broadcasts from the El
Patio were never less than three
times weekly over an NBC hook

well known to radio listeners as

he went on an extended tour of

Signing of Mojica is in keeping
with a class of ’41 characteristic
of coming out ahead in their ven
turings into the complicated field
of outside orchestras. It was this
\ same class, it will be remembered,
who last year got Dick Jurgens for
the frosh glee.
Setting for the dance will be
Gerlinger, where all the usual
Christmas atmosphere will be in
evidence. Plenty of mistletoe, hol
ly, snow, and everything except
cold are guaranteed by the sopho
mores, who will have Alumni room
open for the event.

U of Minnesota
Mining School
Gets Practical
Practical and grimy are terms

ties of students at the University
of Minnesota mining school, who
are learning some of their mining
techniques by experience.
Twenty-two mining students re
cently descended into a smoke and
gas filled heating tunnel to prac
tice use of oxygen mining apparat
us. Directed by a traveling demon
strator from the U. S. bureau of
mines, they went into a tunnel
filled with a mixture of carbon mo
noxide, formaldehyde, and smoke
to remain for two hours. Each stu
dent carried a 32-pound oxygen
tank on his back.

Harger Almost Fooled Them
Les Harger . . . drew plenty of cheers from the Oregon rooting section Saturday when he appeared and
led the University band at halftime in this costume. His stunt was a bitter satire on the fact that Oregon
goes without a drum majoress while OSC has two such as attractive Beatrice Leonard, at right.
Whoops, Look
They've Got It
A Majoress
“Oregon has a drum majoress”
—the word spread like wildfire
through the Webfoot rooting sec
nouncing booth, and echoed from
all corners of the stadium.
As incredible as it seemed af
ter a student affairs committee
ruling against the coed baton
twirlers, there it was—a beauti
ful, high-stepping girl leading the
Oregon band at half time. When
the band and the flashy stick
slinger turned to face the Web
foot rooting section, the whole
section stood to cheer the show
of courage which the majoress
showed in coming on the field.
A fancy display of baton twirl
ing was demonstrated by the Ore
gon coed. All attempts to get in
touch with her failed. It was un
derstood that her name was
Hessie Larger, although she
would probably disclaim any re
lation to Oregon’s prestn baton
twirier, Les Harger. Student in
vestigators pointed out, however,
that when the pretty baton-wield
er was on the field, Harger could
not be found and that he reap
peared as soon as she made her

To Be Delivered to
Student Members
’« ---— 4
Plans for presenting every member of the ASUO with a complete,

Discussion of these and other portions of the official document
have been necessary, the committee discovered, when Zane Kemler and
Changes Made in
Examination List
Only two changes are to be
made in the schedules for fall
term examinations as listed in the
"white book’’ of term acitvities,
issued at tbe beginning of t!he
school year, C. L. Constance,
assistant registrar, said yesterday.
The two changes, approved by
the schedules committee, include a
shift of both sections of class 207
in elementary psychology to Wed
nesday, December 15 from 10 to
12 o’clock, at the same time as
the examination in background of
social science. The general physics
exam for both sections of class 207
will be held from 3 to 5 on Thurs
day afternoon.
The committee, meeting yester
day, also approved the schedule of
events for the school year 1939.
Wally Johansen, delegated by Pres
. ident Harold Weston to prepare
the constitution for publication,
disclosed that important sections
were missing.
Regulations Out-Dated
Lax handling of amendments and
additions in the past brought about
this condition, they believe. This
makes it necessary for the execu
tive committee to bring some regu
lations up to date, and to supply
others where no actual record can
be found.
The complete text of the docu
ment will be adopted by the com
mittee at a meeting tomorrow. The
constitution will be submitted to
printers and be ready for distribu
tion at the beginning of winter

Other business of the committee
including the naming of John Lu
vaas, senior, to the chairmanship
of Dad’s day. Carolyn Dudley, sen

UO Students Were
Warned to Get in
Section by 1:45, Say
Answering numerous student
protests concerning the arrange
ment of the Webfoot rooting sec
tion at the Oregon-Oregon State !
game Saturday, University officials
today explained that students were
warned that no seats in the rooting
section would be available after
The students complained that
outsiders were allowed into the UO
section and that many bona fide
ASUO members were forced to "sit
on the ground or anywhere else
that was available.” Several “beefs”
stated that outsiders were rushed
into the section reserved for the
band thereby crowding the band
out of their seats.
Students Warned
“While it is unfortunate that
many students came in late and
didn’t find seats in the regular
rooting section, it was their fault.
They wfere warned many times be
fore the game that all UO rooters
must be in their seats by 1:45 or
enough general admission crowd
would be let in to fill up the remain
ing seats,” Anse Cornell, athletic
[ manager, said.
Large Staff Worked
Zollie Volchok, assistant educa
i tional activities manager, Expressed
the same opinion adding, “Of course
a few outsiders managed to slip in
before that time. We had twice the
student staff working and even with
the aid of six or seven policemen,
a few did get through. It was al
most impossible to stop them,” he

Kisselburgh Proves
Dynamite to Blast
Staters to 14-0 Win
In Thanksgiving Tilt
Stopped' for three quarters by a
stubborn Oregon defense, Oregon
State’s powerful grid machine
rolled to two touchdowns and a 14
to 0 victory over the football forces
of the University of Oregon Sat
urday on the Multnomah stadium
field in the forty-second renewal of
Beaver-Duck pigskin rivalry.
To 27,000 fans looking on, it was
Jimmy Kisselburgh, a 190-pound
package of fullback dynamite, who
turned the football show from a
scoreless battle to a glorious vic
tory for tne Stinermen from Cor
l in-u l.lilt- ujirim
With the Oregon line tired and
weary from continuous pounding,
Kisselburgh broke through a de
fensive gap in the center of the big
Green forward' wall and ran 32
yards to the Oregon 7 just as the
third period ended. This run turned
the tide, and the Orangemen bat
tered their way to a touchdown,
this same Mr. Kisselburgh diving
over the 1-yard mark.
Eleven minutes later, following
Hal Higgins brilliant 40-yard re
turn of a Duck punt to the Web
foot 28, Kisselburg teamed with
Higgins to take the ball into scor
ing territory. Again it was Kissel
burgh who plowed over.
Two Scores Missed
In the second period, the Web
foots missed two scoring attempts
by close margins. Jimmy Nicholson,
running to the right, suddenly
whipped a quick pass to Halfback
Ted Gebhardt who dropped the ball
on the Oregon 3. A few plays later
Nick’s field goal attempt from his
own 29 yard line was wide and a
trifle short. Never again did the
Ducks come close to scoring.
Barbara Tripp Will
