A Few Random Thoughts.
The University of Oregon brings
more trade and life to the city of
Eugene than any other single influence.
Most of the merchants recognize this.
They advertise in the college papers
not because the advertising itself brings
trade but because they want to help
the students. Why not patronize them?
Some business men refuse to stand
by the University because they know
that it must bring them trade whether
they advertise in the student papers or
not. Why patronize them?
I he Emerald and Monthly are hav
ing difficulty with their finances because
of inability to secure advertisements.
. Why not help them by showing mer
chants that such advertising pays?
Most business men advertise in the
commercial as well as the college (ta
pers and have no way of telling what
advertising brings the best results. Why
not show that student trade comes from
supporting student enterprise by men
tioning that you "saw the ad in the
Just why tlic faculty insist on ktop
ing compulsory tlu-sis writing in the
curriculum is hard to understand, l’lic
practice and practical work of prepar
ing a thesis is undoubtedly the best
kind of training for students in many
department but there are some subjects
in which it seems almost like a waste
of time,-—a mere formality. Why not
make it optional with each professor and
in some dipartments, perhaps, optional
with the students; Surely nothing is
gained by insisting upon the same abso
lute rule in all courses.
The idea of regular afternoons for
the rooters to occupy the bleachers,
watch the team work, and gel together
m some good looting practice is a
good one. It will cause more to be
out at one time and arouse interest in
the work Perhaps secret practice will
have a good effect alter all besides

Whitman College certainly has the
right kind of spirit no boasting or
knocking, just good, loyal grit We
wish Oregon would compete more with
Coach Dobbie of Washington and
Coach Grogan of Idaho formerly
coached rival colleges in the same town.
No wonder Washington beat Idaho 50
to 0. There was evidently no such in
tluence in the Whitman game, so per
haps Dobie instructed his poor squad of
"second team cripples" to take it easy.
At last the Oregon girls are to be
allowed to debate. This is a matter
that has dragged along enough and
should now be taken up in earnest. Co
education may be a mistake, but as long
as it is attempted it should be made so
iu fact as well as in name.
University of Washington, Nov. 6.
Last night the students gave their an
nual shirt tail parade through the busi
ness streets, in order to advertise the
Washington-Whitman game to lie played
today on Denny Field. Torches were
carried, cowbells rung, and the varsity
yells and songs given at all the princi
pal corners in the business districts.
Another will be held just before the
I hanksgiving game with Oregon.
Washington’s half century score
against Idaho last Saturday came as a
distinct shock to the students, for, al
though most the them expected the
team to win, not even the most san
guine looked for anywhere near so large
a score. Comparing this with W. S. C.’s
17-0 score of F'riday, on paper at least,
Washington is somewhat the stronger
of the two.
There is still a chance of W. S. C.
Washington game, although the football
men are not strongly in favor of it, on
account of the congested state of the
schedule. Student sentiment, on the
whole is strongly in favor of the game,
provided it is not postponed too far in
Any chance of a game with the Iowa
Stale College team has been effectually
killed by the inability of the easterners
to get to the Coast until late in De
cember, or possibly not till New Year’s.
The football candidates flatly refuse to
keep in training for such a length of
time for only one game.
\t present there is a strong agitation
in favor of establishing a university
common dining table at which all stu
dents will be required to take their
noon meal. A committee has been ap
pointed by the hoard of control to in
vestigate the matter, and it is probable
that the department of domestic science
will superintend the feeding of the hun
gry students, should the proposition be
favorably passed upon.
Thursday four sophomores were
ducked in Lake Union by their fellow
classmen for not participating in the
class tight, and four freshmen, who had
come down to see the fun were similar
ly treated for not wearing the regula
tion freshman cap.
At an election held on Wednesday the
uanie of the official paper at Washing
ton was changed from "The Daily Pa
cific Wave” to “The University of
Washington Daily.” Last Saturday the
daily’s staff got out a football extra,
containing news of all ihe games played
in the Northwest, and telegraph news
of all the big eastern games.
Oil or Hot Air?
In spite of their overwhelming defeat
h\ the University of Washington the
University of Idaho Argonaut has a,
keen sense of humor. Commenting on !
the game last week it said. "We had
read our rival’s ‘bear stories' and ex-j
pccted to have only a few crippled i
members of the second team to deal;

these men were so miraculously healed." 1
