THE HOSTING SYSTEM
The statement in the Oregon Jour
nal oi' last evening, “that student feel
ing runs high on the campus” against
the Faculty, is entirely erroneous and
does an injustice to Oregon students
The students do not feel that the Fac
ulty members are opposed to football,
nor that if they were, they would re
sort to the posting system as a means
of hindering Lhu sport.
In most cases the student himself is
largely to blame for his being with
drawn from the team. Perhaps lack
of good management has caused him
to attempt a course which, together
with outside work, is too much for
him to carry. Perhaps he has al
lowed his outside activities to take
precedence over his studies, or per
haps he has not become aware of his
nearness to the danger line in scholar
However this may be, it is to be re
grotod that a fairer system has not
been devised. If a student is doing
poor class work, the fact is surely evi
dent long before the eve of a big
game, it would seem that justice to
the individual, to the team, and to the
Student Body calls for a warning. It
is significant that some of the most
stringent and uiflieult departments
have not found it. necessary to resort
to this expedient, neither have they
allowed their high standard of schol
ntship to lap e for a moment.
Furthermore, it is not desirable that
football men should h come the spe
cial object of the system. The schol
Ht ship of all students should be guard
ed with equal cite, in order to avoid
the appearance of special watchfulness
over any particular group.
With the exception perhaps of the
very rare instances wherein the in
stiuctor takes a narrow attitude, a
more earnest application of the indi
vidual to his studies will remedy the
Although there are instances where
the system has seemed to work un
fairly. and men have been withdrawn
from the line-np at critical moments
with seemingly insutllcient warning,
there has novel been a feeling among
the students that the Faculty as a
whole was out of harmony with the

I o WHAT THE COLLEGE o
, o EDITORS ARE SAYING o
WHAT IS THE REAL REASON?
(0. A. C. Barometer.)
The Oregon Emerald bitterly de
nounces the five year proposition,
I claiming that they have no right to
. bind future generations by contracts
which conditions may upset. This
sounds fair, but the real reason for
, a long contract is to prevent these
. very unlooked for conditions. Surely,
| the schools will be just where they
are now five years from now, both
schools will have athletic teams, and
[ the alumni and friends of each school
; will be just as anxious to see games
then as now.
I The proposition of playing the next
four games in Portland also seems to
cause dissatisfaction. There are
> hundreds of alumni of each intsitu
- tion who desire to see an annual foot
. ball game between the teams repre
> resenting their respective alma ma
ters. When a game is played on either
campus it works a great hardship
. upon these people and consequently
. few attend the game. Then again
the general public is interested in the
two schools and should be given an
) opportunity to see some of their ath
letics. To satisfy these two de
mands, if for no other reason, the
. annual games should be played in
Several prominent U. of O. alumni
, have joined hands with O. A. C. in
, our proposition. In addition to this
the general opinion of the press is
that we have proposed a perfectly
ligitimate proposition. Why does U.
of O. hesitate? Is she afraid?
o EXCHANGES o
Princeton and Dartmouth are now
the only big Eastern colleges, whose
goal lines are yet uncrossed.
Harvard has a very promissing
punter this year in Willetts. His
punts are long and hard to catch,
Walter Camp says, the best attack
this year will be one that combines
shift plays with straight football,
Coach Lindgren has the poorest
looking material at the University of
Illinois that has been noted since
A Freshman rally was held at
Whitman College, last Saturday night,
in celebration of their victory over
A fire at the Oregon Agricultural
College last week destroyed the stock
judging building and did damage to
the amount of $7,000.
Twelve Rugby players, with the
coach and trainer, formed the train
ing table, which started Monday at
California. The list includes seven
forwards and five backs.
The annual fall track meet was held
at Yale University, October 16. The
object of this meet was to test the
new material. As usual, none of the
performances were phenomenal, but
plenty of good material appeared.
