campus living group is eligible for

College Football New to Many
For the majority of Web
foots the gridiron action in
Hayward field today at 1 :3C
p. m. will be their first college
football game. It may also be
their first time in the stadium.
Seniors remember games in the
fall of 1942, while juniors wit
nessed several soldier-student
games in the field in 1943. The re
sult is that few students have a
very clear picture of a football
game at Oregon.
The first question is: What to
wear? Tradition in the past has
decreed heels and short silks for
women, and rooter’s lids for men.
Ed Allen, ASUO president, an
nounced at the assembly Thurs
day that such would be in order.
The same day the Women’s Coor
dinating council went on record as
favoring heels and short silks.
Entering Stadium
Students will enter the stadium
on the east side, being admitted on
their ASUO cards. The reserve sec
tion, at $1.80 a seat, is on the west,
and general admission seats, at
$1.20, on the south side, with en
trances on Fifteenth avenue. There
will als<* be a special section for
children and service men at 60
cents per ticket.
‘“Puddles,” the live and quack
ing Oregon mascot, will be in
troduced to the two-legged va
riety of Ducks today at the
Idaho-Oregon game. But the
naming of Puddles didn’t merit
any enterprising student two
tickets for the reserved section
df the game—alas, no enterpris

turned in a name. Despite the
contest to name the creature—

tests are UO's meat—not a

University Co-op
Staff Doubles As
Sales Increase
The largest increase in sales
since the Co-op moved into Chap
man hall in September, 1939 has
been in cokes,” according to
Marion McClain, manager of the
University’s student store.
The staff had to be doubled at
the time the store moved from its
cramped space next to the College
Side Inn to the present site. Sales
immediately rose 25 percent and
the prewar normal was a 45 per
cent increase. Sales are now on an
equal with those of any period in
Co-op history, Mr. McClain said.
The large balcony has proved an
advantageous place for the sale of
textbooks. During the rush period
this fall 18 people worked behind
the counter and as many as 300
students crowded onto the balcony.
Mr. McClain said that the scope
of the stock has not increased so
much as have the volume of sales
although the sale of art prints,
stationery, and personalized cards
has greatly increased.
Tex Oliver, head Webfoot football coach, will' send his team into
action at 2:00 this afternoon in the first home game in Hayward
field in three years. The foe, the Idaho Vandals, promise stiff com

of the out-standing backs on the
Pacific coast, teamed up with
triple-threater Bobby Reynolds
and sophomore fullback. Jim Byt^y

the Ducks.
Good Offensive
A good offensive game is ex
pected. The Vandals did consider
able passing in their game against
WSC, and on one occasion Idaho’s
star half hack Jim Hatch broke
away for a 74 yard dash against,
the Cougars.
Oregon's loss of Elliott Wilson
because of ineligibility robs the
Webfeet of one of their mainstays.
The possible loss of the Ducks of
guard Harry Reiton and end Abe
Hathway presents a problem to
the starting lineup. The loss of
these two players might give the
edge on the line to the Vandals.
