I Oregon Recalls First'Alumni Day' (Editor’s note: This is the first of three articles which will appear in the Emerald on the history of Homecoming at the University of Oregon.) By FLETCHER and KOHLMEIER Another chapter in the history of Oregon Homecomings will be added to the annals when alums and students unite to “Return, Re call, Recapture Oregon spirit” as another Homecoming is celebrated on the Oregon campus November 22 and 23. The tradition of Homecoming i dates back to 1914. Those were the days when Hugo Bezdek wras i whipping one of his great football j teams into shape. The Oregon | Daily Emerald was just getting ! into its stride with a four-page, ! thrice-a-week publication. * No one seems quite certain whose was the pioneering spirit behind the “Alumni Day,” as it was then called, but it was likely instigated by the student body president, Tom Boylan, now a Portland business man. He sent letters to about 400 graduates “in the Willamette val ley and places not too far away in viting them to ‘come home’.” Oregon had a big football game slated with Whitman college for the afternoon of October 10 and that seemed a good time to have the grads come back. Special plans were made by sororities and fra ternities to entertain their alums. I Ernest Vosper, a yell leader, was j put in charge of the activities. Un der his direction a “pajama pa rade” and rally were drummed up for the night before the big game. Traditions Beegin On Saturday morning the fresh man-sophomore “mix,” a tug-of war, (the forerunner of Homecom ing and Junior Weekend freshman traditions) was the attraction. Inspired by the spirit of return ing rooters, Oregon romped over Whitman with a score of 29 to 3. After the game, an informal dance honored the “homecomers.” The idea was received with en thusiasm. Some 100 graduates came “home to Oregon.” Leland G. Henricks, editor of the Emerald, wrote an editorial commending the celebration and voicing the hope that it would become a tradition. i, leadership, and character, the Senior Six tops the senior classes’ scholastic activity list. Phi Beta Kappa belongs in the liberal arts field and members are selected for their exceptional achievement in a. well rounded liberal arts pro gram. Other members of Phi Beta Kappa will be elected in the spring. Jessup New President At the fraternity’s meeting yes terday, Dr. Betram Jessop, assis tant professor of philosophy, was elected president of Oregon Alpha of Phi Beta Kappa. Dr. E.C.A.
