ORE than one beating was taken at ITay
■LTJ- ward field Saturday. Probably the most
spectacular happened on the gridiron. Ibit
one equally as legitimate was dealt out in
front of the Oregon stands, with the long
suffering rally committee on 1he receiving
The boys and girls in white had a tough
time. Saturday was a bad afternoon lor them.
They stood out in front, facing the crowd, and
tried heroically to do their job as they saw it,
but it was no use. They got nowhere.
The same thing happened at the Stanford
game in Portland two weeks before. The rally
committee was out in front, but 1he results
they got were no better than Saturday s; and
Oregon won that day.
Before this goes a word farther it should
be made clear it is no blanket indictment
of 1hc rally committee. They are as hard
working as anyone could be under the cir
cumstances. Put any assortment of typical
Oregon boys and girls out front in a like
spot and 1 lie same tiling will happen. And
in a way it is a good thing it does happen,
for it just goes to show 1 hat the rally com
mittee, never designed for such a purpose,
should not be expected to act as a crew of
minor yell kings and queens.
JT is only in the last hvn nr Hirer years Hint
1 lie rally eoinmiltee lias been expected In
take over Ibis function. Formerly the group
was primarily an organizational body, whose
main function was to promote rallies and
rally functions, in close cooperation with the
yell king. The rally committee planned and
led parades, and it worked up various stunt,.4
to put the campus into the mood before the
game. At games their appearances were few,
and were of the type of the OSC game here
two years ago, when they appeared with a
truck bearing a cow, while from the truck
they tossed ears of corn in the husk into the
crowd. Not exactly Hie most delicate piece
of promoting imaginable, but definitely on
the lively side.
In recent years it has become virtually a
favorite sport to attack the rally committee
for one reason or another. Only last year the
organization of the rally committee was in
corporated into the AHUO code after an in
tensive study of the systems of other schools.
This year was to have been different.
This year has been different, as far as last:
year s complaints are concerned. The commit
tee is better organized, and it operates more
efficiently. But the fact remains that it is
being asked that for which it was never in
tended at the tilin' of its origination.
# # #
* | MlhiRE may be some kind of reasoning
which will take the rally committee out
of the doghouse. If there is it should be
brought out before very much longer. There
is no point to wasting the energies of such a
group on n job 1 hey should not be attempting
If the chief duty of a rally committee is to
get out before a rooting section and bring
their hands together when the band plays, in
order that, rooters will know they should clap,
then what on earth are the yell king and Ids
two assistants for? It would seem that the
yell trio should be able to handle this none
so-diffieldt assignment. The (dapping of hands
together is not so complex an art that it must
be demonstrated in multiplicity each time
there is a need for Ibis type of action.
Granted the rally committee is a colorful
group in their white sweaters with their clev
er ]it Mo emblems. Granted they are a pretty
good sample of collegiana for rally purposes.
Hut might they not serve equally as well
without having to do the type of thing they
have been doing? About all this large group
in front accomplishes now is the confusion
of the rooters, who get in the habit of waddl
ing nearly a score of white-clad figures in
stead of two or three main leaders. 'I'llis can
certainly be no aid to harrassed yell leaders,
who always need every bit of attention, every
break they can get. Now they are lost in the
'T'llI'jRE is willmuf ;i don)>t a need for such
an organization ns a rally committee;
nlherwise il would not he 1 lie rule for every
school 1o have them. There is much such a
committee can do to help lessen the harden
of the yell king, and to go where he cannot
reach. Hut it would seem that something
should he done to find the best possible1 place
for the committee.
The problem is not actually a matter for
the entire AMTTO to decide. It should he
worked out between the yell king and the
rally committee chairman, who should see the
handwriting on the wall and attempt what
common sense dictate's — namely the with
drawal of the committee from yell leading
After all. the rally committee setup in the
ANU() code is very liberal about the how of
I he committee's work, and there is nothing
anywhere which declares exactly what the
committee is to do, beyond “arousing enthus
iasm, '’ or souk* such phrase.
The rally committee would probably wel
come the chance to direct its energies to chan
nels in which they do some real good, while
tin1 net result in the long run might be
smoother operation of the whole “rah-rah”
At least there is room for adjustment, and

Saturday is how different il can look the
following Monday; this can also be endorsed
for Tuesday. This principle works out espe
cially in the case of last Saturday and today.
When the Oregon crowd left the stands
Saturday they carried with them the memory
ot a reverse which had dealt a sharp blow to
visions of the rosiest, season in many a long
year at Webfootland. It was a dark day.
Then came the steadying influence of time,
here it is Tuesday, and it begins to look as if
there might be a few rays of sunshine peeping
through the gloom clouds. Instead of all being
lost it would seem that nothing is lost, and
indeed something gained.
The gain apparent by Tuesday morning
can be summed up in one word-—psychology.
So the big Webfoot machine took a whacking.
Fine. They have taken it at the most likely
time, just alter sueeesstully going through
three tough, far more important, weeks. The
letdown was feared, that it came on a Satur
day when a non-conference opponent was at
hand was a stroke of fortune.
To forget the previous three weeks in the
face of one king's-x defeat would be foolish—
the Webfoots must have something or they
would never have been able to stand Southern
California, Stanford, and California on their
successive ears. That something is still there.
. While no one would be willing to say the
ueieai was aeiuany inviieu, n oan sun no
written otT as a good tliinpr, for if ever there
was a right time to lose, Saturday was it.

Buy America! . . .
We hear from home that one of
Hollywood’s better evangelists is
advocating that no loyal American
would think of going anyplace oth

hell. Well, we’re not sure about
an American heaven but we’re posi

Waxworks! . . .
Hoagy Carmichael has at last
written what is publicized as a
sequel to “Stardust.” The so-called
“sequel” is “Lilacs in the Rain”
and is a smooth number, but to us
nothing could compare to the im
mortal “Stardust.” Perhaps best
of the current waxings of Car

treatment for Columbia. Larry
Cotton’s vocalizing makes the re

“Lcve Never Went to College” is
B. Goodman’s most recent effort
for swing lovers. Recorded for Co
lumbia, this tune is outstanding
mainly because of Louise Tobin’s
warbling and some fine solo pas

cially so the title. Perhaps condi
tions are different at other col
leges. but we’re certain that love
never enrolled at Oregon. . . . It’s
doubtful that the musical score
from Walt Disney’s “Pinocchio”
will ever achieve the recognition
that rewarded the tunes from
"Snow White.” However, Kay Kay

has waxed “Honest John” and
“Monstro the Whale.”
