PRESENT ATHLETIC SYS
TEM WILL NOT SUFFER
That intercollegiate athletics tend too
much toward specialization and not
enough to a general physical develop
ment of the students at large, is the
trend of the resolution passed at the
last faculty meeting, or in the words of
Professor Young’s original resolution
“They take up the exuberant physical
spontaneity of the physically strong but
turn some toward athletic professional
This is the first attempt in the West
to make college athletics intra-collegi
ate instead of intercollegiate. President
Eliot, of Harvard, instituted a similar
movement two years ago, and it has
since been adopted by several Eastern
Good and Bad Features
J lie resolution enumerates the good
and bad features of intercollegiate ath
letics. First, they make for unity. Sec
ond, they measure physical prowess.
Third, they promote good will. And
fourth, they supply needed exercise.
These are ideal as purposes, but in prac
tice their very efficiency, in the first, is
is baneful; they lead to physical apoth
esis, they cause antagonism instead of
good will, and they tend to encourage
Against the possible good features, the
following indictments are enumerated:
First, facilities and instructors being
limited, the many are neglected at the
expense of the few who least need them.
Second, the spirit of combat replaces
the spirit of play. Third, the prestige of
the University in athletics has a demor
alizing influence on the high schools
and engenders a false impression among
the people. Fourth, the life of the Uni
versity is dominated by athletics to the
detriment of higher ideals.
'l'he resolution concludes with the
statement that “Release from these con
ditierrre-can be secured only, (a) by de
velopment of a rational system of recre
ation within the University, the provision
of adequate facilities therefor, and the
recognition of the higher purposes to
be served; (b) through an appeal to
the other institutions in the Pacific
Northwest to co-operate in this move
ment of reform.
To this end, President Campbell will
appoint five of the faculty to begin cor
respondence immediately with the other
Colleges in the Northwest Conference
and it is purposed to bring the matter
up before the annual meeting of the Con
ference at the beginning of the next
When the purpose of this movement is
understood by the people of the state,
it is expected that it will alleviate the
opposition evidenced in former years
to appropriations for the State Cniver
sity. Oregon owns thirty-four acres
east of the cemetery. On this land it
is the intention to establish race courses,
baseball diamonds and tennis courts.
Kincaid field will also be moved to this
new location when the present location
is needed for college buildings.
It is the opinion of President Camp
bell that present intercollegiate athletics
do not tend too much toward specializa
tion, but there is a tendency which if
allowed to grow unchecked might as
