coming term.

that the freshmen familiarize them
selves with the constitution hand

“The YMCA has a function to
perform on the University of Ore
gon campus which is not filled by
any other organization.’’ This
statement keynoted the talk of Dr.
Donald M. Erb to the freshman
council sponsored by the YMCA
in the “Y shack” Tuesday evening.
“When the intellectual, spiritual,
and social life of the students of
the University is taken care of 100
per cent, it will be time for the
YMCA to consider disbanding. But
that times does not seem to be
coming in the immediate future,”
the president of the University told
the group. “The YMCA offers a
splendid opportunity to combine a
social with a spiritual life,” Dr.
Erb declared. The president titled
his speech, “The Place of the ‘Y’ in
a Well-rounded College Life.”
William Kidwell, dean of men
for Eugene high school, made an
informal talk on the transition
from high school to college and

Adopting an "On to Portland”
slogan as their antidote against
the hard-rto-beat Stanford Indians,
Webfoot rally chairmen last night
announced the scheduling of a spe
cial rally train to Portland for the
Saturday tilt. •
Slated to leave the Eugene sta
tion Friday afternoon at 4:10, the
rally special will reach Portland
early Friday evening to get the
Rose City in a football mood.
All ready to go for Saturday’s
game is Rally Chairman Bob
Hochuli and his staff of new rally
committee members, who will
make their first appearance of the
new year. Special antics have been
arranged for Webfoot rooters.
Rally train rates are quoted at
$2.75 for roundtrip tickets by the
committee. This low rate is a spe
cial reduction for Webfoot fans.
The rally train rates will also
apply to all students who leave on
the 12:55 train Friday noon, Hoch
uli said.
Tickets and information concern
ing the special can be obtained at
the ASUO booth between Oregon

Sales Drive Still
Undetermined; 6
Houses 100 Per Cent
Spurred by last Saturday’s foot
ball suceess and the prospect of an
other this weekend, ASUO card
sales went through their greatest
day since the drive started. No
figures were available, but yester
day’s sales were expected to set a
blistering pace.
Apparently Saturday’s game in
Portland will see most of the stu
dent body on hand to jam the
bleachers. After Saturday late
buyers of ASUO cards will not be
able to get full value for their
money, because the game will
alread be crossed off the list, and
cards will stay at the same price.
