GET OUT AND YELL
The University was beaten at Walla

We have no excuses to offer for the
defeat. Of course, a 20 to 0 tally
against us looks bad. But croaking is
going to do no good. Oregon men
have from time immemorial prided
themselves on being good sports,—
clean winners and game losers. The
general optimism manifest on the part
of both players and students is very
The University is trying out a new
system of coaching on a team com
posed largely of inexperienced men.
The coaches are graduates, who have
every possible motive for wanting to
turn out a winning team. The men on
the squad can always be counted on
to play the best football that is in
them. A loyal and optimistic student
body will do more than anything else
toward encouraging them to retrieve
the tragedy of Saturday.
Don’t crab about what has hap
pened. If you can’t be cheerful, at
least be a sport. Get out and yell.
EXPLORER AMUNDSON TO
LECTURE AT EUGENE
Roald Amundson, discoverer of the
south pole, will lecture in this city
next March on his explorations in the
Antarctic regions and discovery of the
south pole, at the request of the local
Y. M. C. A.
Explorer Amundson is now lectur
ing in France and other European
countries, and in a short time will
come to the United States to continue
his lecture tour.
Amundson has never published a
book on his trip to the south pole,
and very little is known of the trip
and its incidents except a few facts
which were given out on his return.
Consequently his lectures contain
practically unknown facts in regnrd
to the hardships and trials undergone
on the voyage of discovery.

o WHAT THE COLLEGE o
o EDITORS ARE SAYING o
AN INTERESTING SUBJECT
(Washington State College Ever
With the approach of the first foot-,
ball games and the lecture course at ,
tractions the question of “fussing’ !
comes up. The gay young gentlemaa
who has already made a “hit” so
early in the season is wondering jus
now what his privileges shall be in
the new order of things. For the
girls have already paid their way to
these attractions and are not depend
ent upon the former necessity of se
curing a date.
If we were asked, we would say
that “fussing” privileges at the foot
ball games should be absolutely nil.
During a football game is no time to
say nice things to a lady, anyway.
She will not, very likely, have time to
appreciate them, for her attention
should and will be fixed upon the fel
lows who are fighting for the honor
of our institution. We need every
male student in College in the root
ers’ section, for those rooters can
take part in the team work that wins
games. Your lady, if she is the right
sort, may allow you to escort her to
and from the game, but she will never
permit you to sit by her side during
the contest. You fellows that have
the right sort of girls, better heed
this warning, and then you will not
be half so apt to get in bad.
It would be an excellent scheme, if
we could build several seats for the
ladies just as close to the field as pos
sible. Thus they could all be in one
group, where they would encourage
our team to do its best. They may
not care to take part in the vocal
demonstrations, but they can more
than make up for that by the display
of pennants. The ladies can never
realize how much their presence en
courages a football team. We think
that the scheme we have just sug
gested, ought to be worth a touch
down or two. |
We realize that we are getting on
dangerous ground, wnen we speak o
“fussing” at the lecture course at
tractions. The position of the young
gentlemen in this respect is rather
peculiar this year. He looks upon the
proposition of taking a young lady
who has already paid her way, with a
feeling of considerable doubt. The,
young lady has a right to be inde-j
pendent and no doubt she will be
The only suggestion that we can of- i
•fer, is that she let the most favored
young gentleman know whether she
desires an escort or not. We are
anxiously awaiting developments a*
the first entertainment.

The display is representative of all that
good style, correct tailoring and practical
service can create.
Even with a showing as large as this,
in very few cases are there more than
one or two garments of a style.
We want to emphasize the size and
beauty of our stock of coats. You will
see the wisdom of an early selection.
The choicest things will naturally go
first, and although we have a great many
coats here, the particular one you want
may not be here, if you delay buying.
