St. Patrick’s Day
I here are many true and loyal sons
and daughters ol Old Erin on the cam
pus. Shall we allow it to be said to
our everlasting discredit that the Uni
versity of Oregon did not fittingly ob
serve the seventeenth oi March?
Of course, there will he the usual
spasmodic attempt at green neckties and
ribbons, hut St. Patrick is entitled to a
more formal and ceremonious recog
nition, and it seems appropriate that
our wealth of Irish cleverness and en
ergy should originate and carry through
some plan for a more fitting observance
of the day.
Robert Emmett’s birlhdtiy was al
lowed to pas almost unnoticed, yet this
anniver.in offer unrivalled opportu
nilics for fervid oratory on harmless
topics of ambiguity and glittering gen
erality, such as h’reedom, Home Rule
and the “OnId Sod.”
St. Patricks Day is an even more im
port : 11 (. i -i. in, which litevallv cries
ior ip- a p, i ite . h- rvanee. I.el us by
all means haw a campus parade and an
oration delivered in the good, rich
rich brogue I here are surely enough
mu • m the University cal
end r to earn through anything from a
wake to a measure for home rule.
a Successful Season
Willamette University now comes out
as basketball champions, basing their
claim upon CMiii|»ar.'tivo scores. Last
fall tlie\ urged, in a tiome paper, that
(b e,":! mn t now "take dictation from
Willamette, because Washington is first,
Willamette second and Oregon a bad
third in collegiate football ranking.

CLUBS AND FRATS CHOOSE
Most of the frats have elected their
captains and managers and will begin
active practice as soon as places can
be found to locate diamonds. The Var
sity diamond can be used when the Var
sity squad is not on it, but it is entire
ly inadequate, as there will likely be
twelve teams besides the Varsity squad.
An effort will be made to find some
. ■ nt lots to turn into diamonds, and
there may be some practice games pulled
if before the regular schedule begins.
The following men have been elected
as captains and managers by the differ
ent fraternities: Delta Sigma, Gabriel
captain, G. Thomas manager; Kappa
Sigma, Mores manager; Acacia, Brow
nell captain, Gillis manager; Avava, Do
bie captain, Dobie manager; Sigma Nu,
Chandler captain, Stewart manager;

SOTYA DEVA, EX-’09, IS
STUDENT AND WALKER
Satya Deva, ex-’09, the Hindu student
who made many friends at Oregon sev
eral years ago, has just reached New
York after walking across the conti
nent, a trip which required nine months
of steady travel. He left Seattle last
June after completing nis college course
at the University of Washington.
Deva is now awaiting a favorable op
portunity to go to his home and assist
his people in overthrowing the English
yoke, a cause to which he is passionately
| devoted. He evidently believes that the
i llralimins can successfully compete with
| the Christians as bidders for divine fa
vor. for he writes that he is depending
on the God who has helped him through
life to show him a way to liberate his
\\ hile at Washington, Deva wrote an
: article on American girls, which he
ha.a-d on the characters of several well
known Oregon co-eds. He also writes
for several Hindu journals in Chicago
and Calcutta, and Ids recent trip was
for the purpose of observing the Amer
ican people and their conditions at first
hand, in order that he might give a
" ritten account of them to his own
