A contract to play Oregon Agricul
tural College at Eugene this fall and
in Portland the next four years is
manifestly impossible. A three year
contract is more acceptable, but we
have not the right to bind a future
generation of students live years
hence and under changed conditions
which we cannot possibly forecast.
These should be campus games
anyway. With forty minute electric
service between Corvallis and Eugene
in operation in a few months, there
is no rational reason for travelling
five hours to Portland to play foot
Theoretically, at least, college stu
dents maintain football as a sport for
their own pleasure and benefit. They
certainly have the right to demand
that the games be played where they
can see them. That a great many
students could not go to Portland for
the game, even during the Thanksgiv
ing recess, and that a large propor
tion of those who would go could ill
afford the expense, is too well under
stood to be debatable.
An occasional game in Portland
may be allowable, but it is certainly
not fair to the students of either col
lege to contract for four successive
games, reaching five years into the

BARNETT BUYS RANCH
Dr. Barnett, head of the political
science department, believes in the
“back to the farm” movement. As
the result of a search for ranch lands
suitable for investment, he found
what he wanted near the headwaters
of the Mohawk river in the Coburg
hills. Early this fall, he became the
owner of a ranch consisting of twen
ty acres of uncultivated land, which
will be converted into a prune or
Dr. Barnett reports that the prem
ises are infested with wild animals
and covered by a forest primeval, but
he hopes to have the timber removed
before long, by making presents of
fir trees, seven feet in diameter, to
the other members of the faculty.

MISS GUPPY GIVES GENERAL
ADVICE TO FRESHMEN WOMEN
Democracy and participation in
some form of college activity were the
main points dwelt on by Miss Ruth
Guppy in a talk given to Freshmen
girls yesterday afternoon. Miss
Guppy urged the girls not to shut
themselves off in some particular
clique of close friends, but to become
good mixers. The necessity of taking
part in some enjoyable form of col
lege work, outside of study, was also
featured as a preparation for a suc
cessful and happy University course.
Miss Guppy spoke of the first two
semesters as the year of opportunity
in which college women can establish
themselves firmly in the life of the
The Dean spoke on the necessity of
safeguarding against the inclemen
cies of the winter months, and warned
the Freshmen against undue exposure
to rain and cold.
