IT TO I S
It seems quite certain that the Mil
luge Bill has lost.
To he frank, the University has not
•succeeded in making itself understood.
It has been doing a great work for
the State and has been turning out
strong men and women determined to
~>e of service to their commonwealth.
We have gone steadily on, working
toward our goal, taking for granted
that our efforts and accomplishments
We have been mistaken. The pub
lic spirited, democratic people of Ore
gon, once aware of the true situation,
will not fail to maintain adequately
their State University.
As a free institution, it. stands first
of all for equal opportunity, the
quintessence of democracy, next it
stands for efficient and enlightened
citizenship. As soon as the people
become convined of this, there will be
no question as to support.
Our commonwealth and extension
movements are doing a great deal to
bring- the University before the peo
ple. Above everything else it is up
to each individual student to make
good. He must bear in mind that,
wherever he may go, lie is regarded
as typical of' University students.
One cigarette smoking, loafing, good
for-nothing from the University can
do more lninn in the minds of the
voters, than hundreds of earnest, am
bitions, efficient men can eradicate.
Here is one of those rare instances,
whore the very snudi minority is more
influential than the great majority.
!n the meantime the University will
continue to progress. We are no
worse off than we have been for years
past, except that increased attend
ance continues to overtax our already
crowded facilities. We are hindered
by lack of room and equipment, but
we have not been set back. Our ad
vancement, can be impeded, but noth
ing can stop us.
The next legislature will undoubt
edly make a careful study of condi
tions, as did the last, and will vote
us a fair appropriation.
We do not believe that there is any
one who will dare face a fairminded
public with an abusive manipulation
of free government and attempt to
withhold another just appropriation
with a petition of 1'raudulant signn
A new but povvt'i ful factor which is
certain to figure on the side of higher
education in the University's next
campaign for funds i- the vote of the
women. \\ omen clubs have been a
potent factor without the suffrage.
N'o one knows just whal they will do
now that their mcmb.-i have the
ballot, but the pans among profes

Lit it distinctly be understood that

Few on the campus realize how
much work is required to get out a
tri-weekly paper. The Emerald runs
throughout the year, holidays and all.
There are no days off, no short “sea
son”; no cheers from excited mobs of
rooters. but hard unremit
ting work. No one in college does
more faithful and unrequitted work
than the under editor and regular re
porter on the Emerald.
To make the staff should be marked
as an honor, a thing to be striven
for, and acknowledged by the college
community when attained.
It is to this end, as well as to fix
absolutely the responsibilty for each
part of the work done on every issue,
tha the changes noter are made.

Professor Young Proposes New
To the Editor:
The recent communications with
which representative alumni have
“come back” in this column of the
Emerald, must have brought keenest
delight to every lover of Oregon. Such
a spirit evinced by the sons and
daughters of this Alma Mater prom
ises the development of a great forum
in the Emerald, in which there shall
be not only discussion but also plan
ning and reports of Oregon team
Work and Oregon victories in a game
I hat will lift the University and the
State up to a higher realm of activ
ity and life.
Each Oregon alumnus and alumna
conscious in heart and mind of an im
pulse nurtured by four years at citi
zenship, training tables, and chafing
for a chance to get into the g<.tno of
fostering Oregon’s up-building, is now
urged to assemble a team in his or her
community. The game is a distinctly
Oregon game and brings into exercise
the highest and best attributes of
manhood and womanhood.
The time is most propitious for
scheduling these new contests against
moss backism and philistinism in Ore
gon life and thought. The din of the
iceent conflict is over. The dust and
commotion raised by some great and
many petty recent issues are clearing
away. The opportunity invites far
reaching activity of constructive ef
fort. The field is clear for a game
A t.ain inspired by the Oregon
spiiit and fostered by Oregon ideas
should be organized in every commun
ity. All with faith in scientific com
monwealth development are eligible.
The Oregon alumni have only to say
the word, and present the plan of a
University procedure for social prog
ress, and scores of citizens in each
community will respond for the pro
motion of civic and social uplift.
This Oregon game means much for
the individual player also. Every
inch of ground gained in it puts him
ahead so much for life. A successful
forward pass means a permanent en
richment of life. Ideas score and a
touchdown means a nobler and fuller
life for the community.
Every Oregon alumnus and alumna
is in prime condition for this game.
Eveiv minute of deferred participa
tion in it counts against future effi
Oomonstrate to the people of Ore
son that there is an Oregon spirit
that has aims of which a majority of
them have not dreamed.
