The trophy given to the wom en’s living organization for the most attractive "remember when” sign has been mislaid by the homecoming committee. It could have been thrown in the waste paper basket along with the pro and con petitions the harrassed committee has de cided, or maybe one of them was forced to use it for a defense weapon against some of the Amazons who wanted .trailing shirts Saturday evening. Or maybe some house is still hoard ing it from last year’s win. Anyway, the committee sends out a plea to the freshmen that, as they scrape the tarnish from the in-house trophies in prepar ation for the alums, to keep a watchful eye out for thus elu sive loving cup. Old Library Sign Named As Winner Kappa Sigs, Delta Upsilon, Sigma Chi, Alpha Gams Place Theta Chi for the third con secutive year won the Homecom ing sign contest.

This all will be settled at 2 o’clock this afternoon at Hay ward field before 20,000 fans. The Webfoots say they are ready, so do the Beavers. Both coaches have expressed the idea that their teams are “set” for the big game. The players feel it too. With both teams in a confident mood, and only one winner, today 's game should be a classic, the 43rd meeting since 1894. Tex Oliver, Duck coach, said he felt that the boys were ready to put un the best game of the season today. And whenever a player was approached, his only answer would be a broad smile and maybe the words, “we’re set.” Staters In Good Condition Lon Stiner, Beaver mentor, has said that he feels his team is in good physical condition and is ready for the vaunted Ore gon running and passing attack. And whenever a Beaver meets a Duck on the gridiron, he has that air of confidence that cannot be denied. Oregon will be trying to break into the scoring column against the Beavers for the first time in four years. Three years running the final has read, 0 for the Duck. After making but one touchdown a game for the first five games, Oregon opened up last week to make six all at once against WSC. This high scoring aggregation may continue to roll today. Odds on the game favor neither team, a tossup. The Broad way Bookies say 6 to 5 for the Webfoots. Of the other experts, three say Oregon State and two vote for Oregon. Locally each home town favors its own team, all bets even. Oregon State will have six of its 11 players playing their last season, and Oregon has 9 of their 11 playing their last game before a local crowd. One of the best individual duels will be between Seniors Jay Graybeal of Oregon, and Morrie Kohler, OSC flashy half. Both are the spark of their teams. “Left” Bob Smith, Oregon’s all-American candidate, will perform for the last time on the turf of Hayward field. Working alongside of him will be the fighting Irishman, Denny Donovan, the unsung hero who calls the signals from his quarterback post, and who gets his biggest thrill today, as the acting captain for his team. A three-year veteran, Vic Reginato, starts at right end for the Ducks. Only other lineman to see action in most of his college career opening the game is Cece Walden, the 213-pound bulwark of the forward wall, at right guard. Ernie Robertson opens at the other guard post. “Cad” Cadenasso opposes a 215-pound stone wall in Johnny Tsoutsouvas, commonly called “Choo, Choo.” Frank Emmons at full has for his rival the best all-around player in the Beaver backfield, Jim Kisselburgh. Jim does the kicking, passing, and % | good deal of the running for his team.
