Deferred Rushing, Sign Contest
Big Issues at Oregon Last Fall
By Barbara Jeremiah
One tradition-year ago—Home
coming 1949.
What difference does a year
make? Let’s take a look at the
Nov. 19, 1949 issue of the Emerald.
First of all, the campus was
aroused about this thing called
"deferred living.” While fraterni
ties were erecting signs with a
“Beat the DuShane Plan” theme,
the editorial pages of the Emerald
were advising them to “Bury the
Hatchet and Work for Deferred
Ann Judson house and Delta Tau
Delta fraternity won the sign con
test, while everyone awaited the
"Duck-Beaver Football Classic.”
It was chapter 3 in the Oregon
OSC gridiron civil war and the
last college game for 14 Webfoot
players. It was also defeat No. 6
for Oregon, and the next issue of
the Emerald apologetically ran the
headline “Beavers Beat 20-10.”
Phi Delts—Tri Delts Win
Homecoming hostess Marguerite
Johns smiled bravely from a con
vertible .during a drizzly noise par
ade, while members of Phi Delta
Theta and Tri Delta yelled their
way into first place in the contest.
Everyone was invited to the
homecoming dance in Mac Court—
“One Touch of Tomorrow”— with
Will Osborne’s orchestra. Tickets,
$2.40 a couple.
At the Saturday game, Oregon’s
1919 Rose Bowl team was introduc
ed, and 129 Order of the “O” men
made their nostalgic march around
Hayward Field. The Emeraldettes,
new girls’ drill team, made their
firs^appearance at the game, and
then were lost to history. Someone
made a survey to find out why
football games draw students from
thier studies—and "discovered” it's
for recreation!
Staters Brand Field
The campus was aroused by the
kidnapping of three Oregon men
by OSC students. Two carloads of
Beavers had invaded Hayward
Field sometime Friday ana burn
ed the eight foot high letters OSC
in the center of it. There were
the usual threats of “civil war.”
In spite of hard feeling, the im
promptu gathering of Oregon-OSC
students after the game was en
joyed by all.
Oregon alums were scolded in
an article for not having more
offsprings. In a survey of the num
ber of children of 1924 and 1939
college graduates, Oregon ranked
mighty low. Oregon women averag
ed 1.61 children apiece in 1924,
and 1.4 in 1939. Oregon men were
a little worse—1.32 children in
1924 and .92 in 1939. But more
men from those classes had got
married than women,
Appearances have changed in
the past year—now we have the
Erb Memorial Union for the Home
coming dance and "deferred living”
is in effect. But the traditions of
Homecoming 1950 are those of
Homecoming 1949 or Homecoming
1951. That’s unchanging.

the .^ginning of the next fall term. A compromise was set up which
brought about the winter term rushing.”
“But, Holden added, “the fraternities agreed that none of us could af
ford to rush informally throughout all fall term this year. So we set up
the hands off policy to prevent any one house from rushing at all.”
Holden told Aiken and Mountain that the IFC would be glad to comply
with Aiken’s request to present a more friendly attitude, but that it
could only be done through an official and immediate rush period this
The IFC recommended that Mountain talk the matter over with mem
ers of the IDC, which was the body which could give the “green light” to
a fall term rush program.
