Is O. A. C. Sincere.
If the O. A. C. Alumni and stud
ents are sincere in their desires to re
sume athletic relations with Oregon,
they should bring themselves to some
definite decision in the matter soon,
so that the spring sports can be
Oregon has no desire to humble her
sister college, but so long as the reso
lution remains on the books of the O.
A. C. student body, saying that that
college will have no athletic relation
ship with the University, the Oregon
management does not feel like asking
for any. Had the Oregon student
body passed such a resolution against
the Agricultural College, it would ex
pect to be asked to rescind it before
friendship could be resumed. A
movement to pass just such a resolu
tion was started on the Oregon cam
pus the afternoon that O. A. C. passed
her resolution and it gained many fol
lowers, but there were enough sober
heads about, who saw the evil in the
measure, to stop its materializing.
Oregon cannot help thinking that
O. A. C. made a mistake in passing
the resolution, as she saw that she
would be foolish to pass one of her
own. To be sure, the Eugene stud
ents felt that they were treated badly
at Corvallis by a certain element of
the Agricultural College, but they
are in no may resposible for the news
paper stories, telling of their feel
ings. News is not syndicated at the
University of Oregon, as it is at O. A.
C. Press work for the Portland pa
pers is done by individuals, who are
engaged and paid by these papers,
over whom tin' University authorities
have no power of censor. The head
ing, “University of Oregon,” which
appears in the Portland papers, does
not mean “University News,” but
“News of the University as told by re
porters for those papers.”
We say that if O. A. C. desires to
resume athletic relationship, she
should clear the only obstacle in its
road, immediately. Manager Geary is
willing to arrange games with the
sister college, but he does not wish
to pass up the spring sports, which
Oregon is now paying considerable at
tention to, O. A. C. expects to have
a strong football team next fall, in
fact, it is reasonable to believe that
she thinks her chances of defeating
Oregon are good. Well, Oregon, on
her part, is willing to take the chance
in football and O. \ C. on her part,
should be willing to chance the spring
Uemember, Oregon has not said she
would not contest with O. A. C. It
was that college which severed the
bonds of friendship and it is that col
lege that now blocks the bridging of
The Emerald is receiving a large
number of communications from stud
ents and Alumni, expressing opinion
on various subjects, some of which
have been published, but many others

The Emerald desires to give a part
of its space to such matter, but in
order to protect the news interests,
must make it conform to certain reg
ulations. Hereafter communications
must not contain more than two hun
dred and fifty words, and the editor
reserves the right to cut the articles
to two hundred words, if he deems it
advisable. The writer’s real name
must be signed to his article, and
unless a good reason exists, it will be
published. The limit of two hundred
and fifty words is an ample one, we
think, within which to discuss fully
any subject pertaining to student ac
The Emerald appreciates the inter
est the alumni and students take in
its issues, and will be only too glad to
publish as many communications as
its limited news space will allow.
