For Sunday
Students to Greet
Team at Station
Upon Arrival
If the Webfoots have a scalp
dangling' from their trophy belt or
if the Indians are eating Duck
soup, it makes no difference to
Pat Keller and his rally commit
tee who are planning to welcome
Oregon gridiron men when they
arrive home Sunday noon.
Students are urged to be at the
station at 11:45 to meet Coach Tex
Oliver and his traveling squad of

the Stanford Redskins this after
noon in Palo Alto.
Bob Greer, who has been sub
stituting for Oregon’s yell king
this week while the latter attends
to University affairs at Stanford,
will again be in charge of the yells
and songs. A public address system
will help the yell leader and fur
nish music for the rally.
The rally committee will also be
on hand to greet the football men
and escort them to open-air tour
ing cars. From these automobiles,
the gridsters will receive the hom
age of the crowd as they lead a
serpentine back to the campus up
Willamette and on down Thirtenth
ROTC Receives
More Uniforms
Uniformed Drill
Thursday, Says
Colonel R. M. Lyon
Shortage of equipment forced a

of the ROTC department, stated
that storekeeper Joseph Pfeiffer
now has a complete stock of issue
clothing, and requests that those

uniforms at the first of next week.
The entire co^ps will be required
to appear in uniform for next
Thursday's drill, Colonel Lyons
“The ROTC unit presented a fine
appearance despite the fact that
1 Thursday marked the first turnout
for military formation,” Colonel
Lyon commented yesterday after
noon on the corps’ first practical
drill session of the year.
An increase of 100 is shown by

To a Sob Sister
If you’re sorry for the football
Who are mangled on the field,
Don’t vent all sighs this after
Nor all your sorrow yield.
Feel sorry for "the campus boys.
Sympathize with their position.
If you’ll wait until this evening,
They'll be in the same condition.

Bears Eat Butterflies,
Sneech Teacher Finds
“Yes, I did learn in my work
this summer that a bear eats but
terflies, a beaver combs his hair,
a deer is a dangerous animal
and . .
But Mr. Mark Hanna, instructor
of speech was reluctant to com
ment further on his summer’s
work, the presentation of a series
of radio programs for the Willam
ette National Forest service.
These presentations, which de
viated from the usual statements
and facts in favor of narratives
and dramatization of historical
happenings, dealt with the life and
characteristics of wild animals as
related to forest conditions.
It is Mr. Hanna’s hope that the
sequel to his radio series for the
forest service might be the approv
al of Washington officials to his
plan for a similar dramatization
series over a nationwide radio
hookup. Such a hookup would be
in collaboration with the speech
departments of colleges and uni
versities in the larger cities and
towns of the country.
Mr. Hanna feels that such a se
ries of programs sponsored by the
government and conducted by col
lege speech departments would af
ford students marvelous opportun
ities for contact and experience
with the major broadcasting com
It is his plan to syndicate these
program scripts, sending them to
8 p e e c h departments throughout
the country, where the programs
would be presented by students
who have shown interest and pro
ficiency in this type of work.

Medical Aptitude
Tests Announced
Medical aptitude tests will be
given at 2 o’clock November 8 in
105 McClure to all pre-medical stu
dents who plan to enter medical
colleges in the fall of 1941, Dr. H.
B. Yocom, chairman of the pre
medical advisory committee, an
nounced yesterday.
The test, which lasts about two
hours, will be given at this time
only, Dr. Yocom explained. Last
year about 25 University of Ore

given to 10,459 students in 623 col
leges and the results were used by
the committees of admission in the
various medical schools throughout
the nation.
The test may be taken by stu
dents whether or not they have
completed their pre-medical re
quirements. It is not primarily a
test of factual knowledge.
Coeds'Error; YMCA
Meet Good Though
Crashing parties may not be
new, but when two girls crash a
Young Men’s Christian association
meeting that is news.
Two freshman girls were reading
their Emeralds when they found
that freshmen were urged to at
tend a YMCA meeting at 7:30
Wednesday evening. The two frosh,
members of Susan Campbell, had
been on the campus just long
enough to get all the letter organ
izations and houses thoroughly
mixed. They couldn’t recall just
what the YMCA was, but decided
to attend the meeting anyway.
Promptly at 7:30 p.ra, they
Showed up at the YMCA hut, and
being- encouraged by a “Welcome
Freshmen” sign, took their places
with the boys. After the room had
slowly filled up with boys and the
meeting had begun, the girls be
gan to feel uneasy and to wonder if
they were in the right place.
Finally they asked one of the
boys around them if they were in
the wrong place and what they
should do about it. He enlightened
them as to what the YMCA was,
but said they might as well stay,
adding that the boys would be glad
to attend a YWCA meeting later,
Needless to say, a good time
was had by all.
Oregon Meets
Stanford Foe
At Palo Alto
Southern Team
Favored in First
League Battle
Oregon clashes with Stanford in
Palo Alto today. Stanford is fa
Someone will blow a little
whistle this afternoon, and two
teams of eleven men each will
come galloping together. Arms
flailing, feet pounding, players will
boom into one another and shake
loose a few grunts—and perhaps a
tooth or two to be trampled into
the turf—at the impact. Up in the
stands, a crowd of some 35,000 will
bellow with excitement at the
bruising struggle, as another Ore
gon-Stanford football game gets
underway, and the curtain is hoist
ed on another season of grid cani,
paigning for both schools.
Riding trains, jallopies, and
thumbs, a handful of Webfoot stu
dents will be somewhere in the
Stanford stadium yelling their
lungs out for Oregon, but the stay
at-home majority will have to glue
its ears to the nearest radio for
the play-by-play description.
Oregon Is Underdog
Oregon boosters with a flare for
adventure and a few spare dollars
can pick up five in Stanford money
with three of theirs, should the
Webfoots kick through, for Tex
Oliver’s boys enter today’s fray 3
to 5 underdogs.
Though basking in the glory of a
recent 27-0 trouncing of U&F, the
Stanford Indian is still smarting
from the 10-0 spanking and the
mouthful of sawdust he was forced
to swallow by the Oregon Duck in
Multnomah stadium last year,
avowing that this year it shan't
be so.
All this, plus visions of his hocus
pocusing every contender out of
the Rose Bowl, has made the Red
man grind his "tomahawk” for the
Ducks with more vigor. «
Strong Oregon Line ",
However, being behind on paper
before the game doesn’t make the
situation impossible for Oregon,
not by any means. Before the bat
tle is too long underway, after a
bit of roughing it up with Jim
Stuart and a few other bruisers on
the Webfoot line, the Indians will
be jarred rudely into realizing that
they’re not puttering around with
USP but are ramming up against
one of the most powerful forward
walls on the coast.
