Frosh, Sophs Mix Today in Annual Brawl Trojans Urged To Buy Ducats Deadline for Notre Dame Tickets Is Set for November 10 Both Sides Hurl Threats On Eve of Bovard Field Contest With the usual ticket buying onslaught accompanying the major football games of the season, students are urged to make ticket reservations this week at the cashier’s window in the University Book store by Marie Poetker of the ticket office. Time for reservations for the two extra tickets to the California-S. C. game allotted on student activity books has been extended till tomorrow to benefit those students who have failed to put in their cash applications. Blanks which are still available at the store entitle students to reserve these tickets at the regular price of $3.30. Applications for the Stanford game at Palo Alto, Get 22, will not be necessary as additional tickets may be purchased at the ticket window on Monday. Stanford rooters’ tickets are now available for $1.10 plus coupon No. 6 from the activity book. The closing date of applications for the Notre Dame game has been set for Monday, Nov. 10. Rooters’ tickets can not be purchased yet. Oregon State and Loyola reserved tickets can now be bought at the bookstore. Walker Declines Nomination for N.Y. Mayor Job NEW YORK. Oct. (UP)— James J. Walker, in a radiogram from aboard the S. S. Europa in midocean, tonight declined an offer by Tammany hall leaders to place his name in nomination for mayor at the city-wide convention of the Democratic party at Madison Square Garden. Following receipt of the former mayor’s message, Surrogate John P. O’Brien, high in the councils of Tammany hall, was nominated by New York Democracy to complete the unexpired term of former Mayor James J. Walker who resigned under fire. O'Brien, direct opposite of the flashy Walker, who dominated New York’s city hall for nearly seven years, was a compromise candidate agreed upon by John F. Curry, leader of Tammany hall, John H. McCooev of Brooklyn, and minor leaders in the Kings and Staten Island districts after Walker had asked that his name be withheld from the convention. Peagreeners Will Attempt To Repeat Victory Won in Hazing With challenges and threats being hurled indiscriminately, sophomore and freshmen men busied themselves today with preparations for the annual frosh-soph brawl this afternoon at 1:30 on Bovard field. Seeking to continue their hazing day triumph, the freshmen will throw their strongest forces on the field. The peagreenrs will be allowed to discard their green dinks if they succeed In overcoming the sophomore defense. Otherwise they must wear them until Homecoming in December. Freshmen have been organized by Richard Parker, all-U frosh president, while the sophomores are working with President Bob Lindsay. Roy Johnson, of the Trojan Knights, is in charge of arrangements for the tussle, and will be on hand to preserve the peace. PARKER LEADS FROSH The frosh made a field day of hazing two weeks ago %nd came off with a pair of Squire trousers. Not content with that, they ducked Knights and Squires alike into the waters of the newly erected fish pond in front of Doheny Jr. Memorial library. In these outrages, however, they had the cheers and support of an assembly time crowd, and will undoubtedly have many upperclassmen behind them this afternoon when they attempt to roll the 10-ton pushball over the squirming bodies of the Squires. TO MAKE NEWSREELS The hazing day’s activities were said to have been instigated by the anonymous kidnapping of kidnapping of Nelson Cullenward, freshman football player, and sophomores took care last night that no frosh were abducted; that is no big frosh. Newsreel men will probably be as thick as freshmen on Bovard field this afternoon. The annual affair always seems to be of as much importance as Mussolini’s review of motorcycle cops or the take-off of a trans-Atlantic flyer. Bowen Oratory Cups Now On Exhibition Five of the Bowen cups won by Trojan extemporaneous speakers a year ago are now on display in the lobby of the student fountain, according to Debate Manager Worth Bernard. Made possible by the Bowen foundation for debating prizes, these cups will be presented to their winners at the finals of this semester’s contest, Oct. 20. Started in 1917, the contest is now in its 16th year. Each year the foundation has presented the six best extemporaneous speakers on the campus with one of these 13-inch cups as the platform artist’s permanent possession. With the only provision being that no person may receive more than one cup, every under graduate man and woman is eligible to compete.

Doughnuts and cider will be provided in great quantities to satisfy the sharp appetites of the would-be farmers. Members of Johnson’s orchestra, dressed in costumes suitable for the affair, will entertain with novelty 3kits during intermission.

By UNITED PRESS Delegates to the American Bankers’ association convention closed their 58th annual meeting today with a plea for restored public confidence and an attack on excessive taxation. Taxation totaling practically the value of all property was pictured By Paul Shoup, executive of the Southern Pacific Railroad and a close advisor of President Hoover, in demanding relief for the "unforgotten man.” "Taxation,” he said, “is society’s assault on the pocketbook of the unforgotten man. This man is everybody, if he spends any money at all.” Francis H. Sisson of New York, newly elected A. B. A. president, told the convention in closing that the foremost problem of American bankers is to restore public confidence in banks and In the economic future of the nation.

Clash S.C. Team To Face Powerful Beaver Squad Oregon Staters May Pull Upset Over Crippled Trojan Eleven By ED MADRID A badly crippled Trojan war-horse will limp out into the Olympic stadium tomorrow afternoon to face what supporters claim is the best Oregon State team that Coach Paul Schissler has ever turned out during his regime as Beaver coach. Beset by injuries on every side, presenting a weak defense against passes, an offense that has failed to function properly in the first two games, a forward wall that depends on two inexperienced men, the Trojans in their second conference encounter will battle a determined Beaver eleven that has a combination of speed, deception, power, and a veteran eleven, a combination that will prove troublesome and may be too large for the men of Troy to handle. BEAVERS THREATEN There have been other seasons when the Beavers weren’t supposed to give S. C. any competition at all, and yet they came mighty close to winning. But this year with everything in their favor . Oregon may accomplish w'hat it has been trying to do for a long time. Schissler has been pointing his men for Southern California all year and the Stanford defeat only served to make the players from the Northwest be all the more determined to break the Troy jinx and come out victorious. MOE OUTSTANDING One of the leading lights of the Oregon team will be Hal Moe, remembered for his outstanding play against the Thundering Herd here last year. This triple threat right half completing his third varsity year, will probably demonstrate to all and sundry that he will be mighty hard to beat for the all-American team. Moe does everything that a good back is supposed to. He is a splendid passer, a fine kicker, and great ball carrier. Another man who bears watching will be red-headed Norm Franklin, the 9.9 second sprinter. Franklin is one of the most shiftiest open field runners ever turned out from a southern California high school and hails from Long Beach Poly. HONORARY CAPTAIN Trying to crack the Trojan line will be fullback Frank Little. Acting as honorary captain, Little will also be playing his last year of football. His line plunging is too well-knwn and it waa he and Moe who were responsible for the downfall of the Violets ot N. Y. U. ’ast year. In past years the Staters’ main difficulty when facing the Trojans has been lack of good reserve material, but Saturday they will bring a powerful reserve squad to throw Into the fray in case things get a little too hot. Faced with task of replacing the roving "Rosy” Rosenberg at running guard, Jones has been trying (Continued on page three) Beaver Coach Paul Schissler, fighting coach of the Oregon State squad, has brought together some outstanding men in the shape of a high-ealiber eleven that is conceded a fair chance of hobbling the crippled Trojan warhorse tomorrow. Council Will Greet Curtius International Relations Group To Entertain Eminent German Dr. Julius Curtius, former German minister of foreign affairs, artillery captain on the western front during the World war, wearer of the Iron Cross, and present member of the German Reichstag, will be the speaker at a dinner arranged in his honor tonight at 7 p.m. at the Elks club. ^ Dr. Curtius appears as the gue3t of the Council on International Relations which ia sponsoring the banquet. Special guests who will join in welcoming the speaker are Dr. and Mrs. Rufus B. von KleinSmid, Mayor John C. Porter, and Dr. Gustav Struve, the German consul in Los Angeles. Dr. J. Eugene Harley, president of the council, will introduce Dr. Curtius who will speak on “Germany and Disarmament” at 8 o’clock.
