UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, MONDAY, OCTOBER, 33, 1950 NUMBER 33 Spirit Carries Snowball Rally Without Squad 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. Truck Appears 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. Roll Called Yell King Ron Symons called roll of the living organizations and led the assembled group in cheers. 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.

Nill Explains Frosh Election Rules, Petitions 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 paign speeches. Just Handbills 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, he said. 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 more. Assembly Sunday 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 the Kappas.
