Fraternal Feeling and the Graduate
The Emerald prints another com
munication this issue from “Pat” Mc
Arthur, not in its entirety, as lie re
quested, for the article was too long
to serve the purpose of our paper
with limited space, but cut to some
extent, without, however, destroying
the chain of the writer’s argument,
We regret to take issue with so
honored an alumnus as Pat McAr
thur, for Oregon is proud of her loyal
graduates, and foremost among them
stands “Pat,” who has always held
Oregon dear to his heart. Hut we
echo the sentiment of a large ma
jority of the students at the present
time, when we say that the system
of graduate coaching for football does
not look good to us who are acquaint
ed with conditions here.
I low would these coaches be chosen
and what method would be used in
scolding the head coach? To the
alumni these appear as trifling. They
think only of the good of tho team
and can set' no reason why any other
consideration should enter in; their
close allegiance to club and fraternity
has long died in their breasts and is
but a vague memory. Not so with
us, however; we are living now in
clubs and fraternities; each one of us
loves his order and is jealous of its
achievements; the wall of our houses
are decorated with pictures of our
brothers who has helped to raise our
fraternity's standard; and records of
honor made by them are kept and
often read. Fraternity feeling enters
into nearly every thing we do and de
termines most id' them. The football
captain is usuallj the prominent
playei who has the greatest frater
nity support, and this will apply to
our track team captains, our baseball
captains, our basketball captains and
to a lesser extent to the managers of
these teams, in the past; even the
l!lec Club is not exempt from an an
nual fight for the otlices of president
and manage!- and the student body
electiom in May never fail to stir up
club feeling which lasts throughout
the year. A deplorable fact? It cer
tainly is, but it is a fact.
The pioposed sj■ tem as we see it
would work in one of two ways; eith
er towards the development of a fra
ternity machine where one “clique”
would control and run the team, or
in a eonsiliatory way where all fac
tions would he given representation
and etlicicicy sutfer at the hands of
harmony. The selection of coaches
would he made on the basis of fra
ternity strength, and while good men
might be selected, they would not be
chosen so much because of that fact,
as of the fact that they had strong
fraternity support in the body that
selected the coaches; and this being
true, dissention would be sure to reign
in the team.
We may over-estimate this deter
mine; influence and its consequences;
we may even he wrong, but this is
the way it looks to us, and we will
continue to see with these goggles
until given others.
