UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, MONDAY, OCTOBER, 33, 1950
Spirit kept the Friday night
snowball rally from fading out
completely as hundreds of stu
dents gathered in the Phi Gamma
D'elta parking lot and staged a
half-hour impromptu rally in the
absence of rally squad.
Originally scheduled for 6:30
p.m., with the Snowball through
the campus starting earlier, the
rally became a mass demonstra
tion down Alder St. and into the
parking lot, where Hap Engelbart,
senior in art, led the crowd in yells
■( ^from atop a parked car.
Chi Omega and Kappa Sigma
i began a series of songs and were
joined by the rest of the crowd.
Delta Gamma and Pi Kappa Alpha
repeated the yell they had rehears
ed for the rally until the entire
crowd joined in.
Not until 7 p.m. did any sign
of the rally squad make an ap
pearance. Then a sound truck
came slowly down Alder and re
quested the students to join in a
procession to McArthur Court.
Students swarmed down 13th
Ave. and up University St. to
McArthur Court. Until the rally
squad and song leaders arrived,
the crowd sang “Mighty Oregon,”
and continued the same spontan
eous rallying which characterized
the parking lot affair earlier.
Yell King Ron Symons called
roll of the living organizations
and led the assembled group in
A Sigma Nu trio sang “Evaline”
and “Five Feet Two.”
The rally Thursday morning was
notable mainly for the small crowd.
ASUO President Barry Mountain
estimated the number of students
as seven hundred.
Coach Jim Aiken introduced the
football team and spoke to the
assembled throng. Hart Larsen,
president of the Eugene Duck
Club also spoke.
Rally girls were introduced and
the Yell squad led the students in
"irpveral new yells.

Rules governing the forthcom
ing freshman election campaign
were stated Friday by Herb Nill,
ASUO vice-president, who is in
charge of the elections.
The rules, set down by the Ex
ecutive Council in a special meet
ing, concern the circulation of
individual campaign literature,
validation of petitions, and cam
Campaign literature, according
to Nill, will be restricted to hand
bills posted on the bulletin boards
in dorm halls. No posters may be
displayed on the campus proper,
nor leaflets dropped from the air,
Validation of petitions will be
done by the ASUO office Wednes
day night after the 5 p.m. dead
line. Names that appear on more
than one petition will be nullified.
For this reason, the ASUO office
advised petitions to be turned in
early. In case the 50 required
signatures endorsing the candi
date arc not all valid the candi
date will still have time to acquire
A freshman assembly has been
scheduled for Sunday at which
time all candidates whose names
will appear on the ballot will pre
sent their platforms. The assem
bly will be held in either the SU
ballroom or Fenton Hall.
As the election will concern
first-year dorm residents only and
will probably be a no-party af
fair, interference by other classes
or organizations has been ruled
out, Nill said.
Lipstick Bowl Battle Sees
Archers Nip Krunchers, 4-0
By Stan Turnbull
Flashing form at nearly every position, a pair of gorgeous football
machines battled on fairly even terms through the entire Lipstick Bowl
Sunday, with the Archers of Pi Beta Phi nipping the Krunchers of Kappa
Kappa Gamma 4-0, by the margin of two safeties.
The teams, made up of pledge classes of the two sororities, both
used the two-platoon system. Despite wet weather and between 200
and 300 ecstatic spectators, both sides made plenty of passes, but alert
officials Mel Krause and George Moorhead kept things in line.
Center Proves Too Muscular
The first Pi Phi score came in the second quarter with the Kappas
in possession of the ball near their own goal. The Kappa center ap
parently saw a friend or relative standing behind the end zone and
tried to center him the ball. It sailed hopelessly over the heads of
the backfield—ah—men, landing behind the goal for a safety. Kappa
0, Pi Phi 2.
A blocked kick recovered behind the Kappa goal by several Arrow
wearers in the final minute made the final score Pi Phi 4, Kappa 0.
Game to the last, the Kappa Krunchers nearly won on the last
play of the game when Joan “Slippery” Fewless intercepted a Pi Phi
pass and ran almost the full length of the abbreviated field before
being overhauled within a girdle’s width of the goal line.
Coaches Praise All Players
The coaches refused to single out any particular players for praise,
saying, "they were all outstanding.” Best in the backfield of either
team, though, was probably Pi Phi Joan “Marvel” Miller, who regular
ly broke through the line for long gains. Great as a defensive end for
the Krunchers was Sue “Dynamite” Riddlesbarger, who let very
few plays get around her end of the line.
Notable was the restraint of the yells rendered by supporters of the
two teams; “Smear ’em, bust ’em, that’s our custom” from the Pi Phi
side was countered by the beautifully simple “Kill ’em, ladies,” from
