Yes, Oregon has several champion
ships to win this year. The football
championship is one and it looks as
though she might get it.
Hu:t how about the championships
that tire hers to be kept? They are
just as important and, what’s more, one
of them at least is very doubtful—track.
For the last four years Oregon has
not been defeated in a track meet. In
the triangular contest she has won more
points th,an Washington and Idaho com
bined. Shall this phenomenal record be
Unless there is soon a radical change
in the situation Oregon will he defeated
this year. Trainer Hayward says that
it makes him faint at heart to think of
the coming season because of the dis
couraging lack of material. 11 is old
point winners are gone. To his call
for recruits, the freshmen seem deaf.
What's the matter with you fresh
men? You have the chance of a life
time. A depleted track team calls for
you. One of the greatest trainers in
the world offers you his services, lie
has trained world heaters, many of them
coming to him without the slightest
apparent ability, lie should have fifty
freshmen on the track every night.
I wo weeks from tonight the first
(rack meet of the year will take place.
I lie freshmen should win; they have
the largest class. Hut present indica
tions are that they will not.
This is not an annual hard luck story.
It is a fact. Unless the freshmen fur
nish some first class point winners, Ore
gon's prestige is doomed. Many seem
to think that nothing is needed hut a
trainer. I here never was a more tool
ish thought. Hayward can’t win with
out men. (iet out ami support him.
A Corvallis newspaper correspondent
recently made a strange allusion to
Bergman, the O. A. C hurdler, as the
champion high and low hurdler of the
Northwest. Our Corvallis friends have
evidently forgotten the fact that during
last season Bergman was three times
defeated h\ Martin 11. Hawkins of the
Universitv of Oregon in the high hur
dles. And m two of those instances it
was a positive walk away for the Ore
The I merald Inis had some difficulty
in making arangements for the deliv
ery of the first isues of the paper. The
manager now has the matter well in
hand and will hereafter get a copy to
every subscriber the same day it is
printed. Subscribers who are missed
will confer a favor on the editor by
reporting the oversight immediately
to the Emerald office. 1 be manager
gets tbe blame.
Last night’s rally showed the proper
spirit. The freshmen are getting it—
we knew they would. The Oregon
spirit, however, is not an end. It is only
the means to an end. It brings results
that rivals marvel at. After the spirit
shown last night we expect to see the
freshmen turning part of it into use
ful channels by doing something them
selves for their college.
HELP THEIR WIVES
Ministers should help their wives with
the house work, both as a recompense
for tbe intellectual aid and inspiration
they receive from their wives, and as
a means of recreation. Such was the
decision of the Eutaxian society, last
Wednesday night, after hearing a spir
ited extempore debate on the subject
between Essie Sechrist, Birdie Wise,
and Alice Larsen for the affirmative, and
Naomi Williamson, Lilah Clark and
Frances Young for the negative.
Two minute impromptu speeches were
given by Jessie Calkins, Jennie Lilley
and Ethel Johnson on the respective
subjects: “A College Girl’s Ideal Man,”
“The Eutaxians,” “The Mill Race.”

DEBATE WITH UTAH IS
PROBABLE THIS YEAR
University of Utah and 0. A. C.
have both written for a debate with
Oregon during this year. Monday af
ternoon at four o’clock the debate com
mittee will meet and decide what ac
tion to take.
It is very probable that the Utah de
bate will be undertaken; but if the rule
laid down four years ago to debate
only state universities is followed, the
challenge from O. A. C. cannot be ac
Debate prospects this year arc by
far the brightest they have been since
the championship team of 1907. Coach
Buehen has been hard at work with the
old material and the men enrolled in
the debating course are laying a firm
foundation for any question that is
liable to come up, though it is prac
tically certain that “National Incorpora
tion’’ will be selected for the interstate
When interviewed in the matter,
Coach Buehen said, “There seems to
be a host of freshman material, but
whether they will get out and work
or lay back as they have in football
i am unable to say. One thing is cer
tain. however, whether old men or new,
those who turn out for debate this
year will have to work. There will
he no slip-shod methods tolerated.”

them at Oregon.
