Webfooters Assist Rally Squad
By Planning Songs, Creating Yells
Students asking the reason tor
the new Oregon spirit and the rally
rally exuberance at football games
will find that the rally squad under
the direction of Yell King Johnny
Backlund has a definite influence
in arousing this spirit. Aiding the
rally squad is an important cog in
the machinery, an organization
known as Webfooters.
The Webfooters do, in fact, per
form the duties of a behind-the
scenes rally squad, carrying out
the ideas and innovations that in
still and cultivate this necessary
spirit in the minds of the students.
Each living group on the cam
pus has one Webfooter representa
tive, appointed each fall term. The
organization, headed by Yell King
Johnny Backlund and under the
general direction of Norm Morri
son, is divided into various com
mittees who work together formu
lating plans for rallies, pre-game
and half-time activities and stunts,
and new songs and yells. When a
rally comes off smoothly as sched
uled or a new fight song or yell is
introduced, the Webfooters are
usually responsible for the success.
Working hand-in-hand with the
rally squad and various game rally
committees, the WTebfooters play
an important part in promoting the
activities advocated by the rally
squad to encourage Oregon spirit.
Those working on Webfooter
committees are: welcoming, Jane

Jackie Tetz, Denise Sewell and

- blackness of a wild north Atlantic night.

in an airplane across the Atlantic, had been forced by gasoline shortage
to land in mid-Atlantic, this morning on a flight from Foynes, Eire, to

Replace Radio Thriller Program
Says Psych Department Head
Before condemning radio thrill
ers as a form of juvenile entertain
ment, parents should examine them
to discover why they are attractive
to children, Dr. Howard Taylor,
head of the University psychology
department, said in a speech to the
Paront-l'eachers association of
Condon grade school last night.
He further pointed out that once
the attraction is established the
parent should attempt to substitute
'something more worthwhile that
would at the same time satisfy the
child’s desire for such entertain
Dr. Taylor said that although
most of today’s adults went through
a similar period of desire for thrill
t y p e entertainment and' that
people’s taste and appreciation
grow with age,he definitely tnoagnt
that radio thrillers were harmful.
These programs were considered
harmful by Dr. Taylor because the
day-after-day emotional stimula

these programs wears the human
mechanism and helps build up ner
