The inter-class and inter-fraternity
games now in progress at Oregon are
sufficient answer to the critics charg
ing that too much attention is given
to inter-collegiate sport and too little
to the campus sports. Nearly every
class and student organization on the
campus is represented by a team in
both the basketball series and the
handball tournament. Not far from
half of the students on the campus
get into the actual games and the
greater part of the remainder play in
the try-out games for their fraternity
This is as it should be. A true
sport is one in whicn every one not a
cripple can participate. I he highly
developed semi-professional sports
have a legitimate place even in our
colleges, hut certainly not to the ex
clusion of the other type of sports, in
which every student can take an ac
The dance which Chi Omega gave,
last night to the football team, is dis
tinctly worthy of commendation.
Not half enough appreciation is
shown the men who turn out night af
ter night in every kind of weather
and work with almost superhuman
energy for three long months in order
to lit themselves to play the good
game for their University. The rest
of us are too much inclined to take
them and their work as a matter of
course and to offer criticism moie
often than praise
Last night’s dance was evidence of
real appreciation, and the men weie
sincere in their expression of gratifi
cation. The Oregon Spirit thrives on
such support as that offered by the
Chi Omega girls.
A new idea at Eugene, and ably
and gracefully carried out.

Last evening the football squad
was entertained by Chi Omega with
a dancing party. The programs were
in the form of cunning little leather
footballs, and in a favor dance the
men were awarded football watch
fobs of questionable value but of
clever workmanship. The house was
decorated with Oregon banners and
footballs that had helped make the
athletic history of Oregon. The play
ers present were: Dean Walker, .John
Parsons, Edward Bailey, Dave Hart
suck, Carl Fenton, Lester Soden, Paul
Biiedwcll, Bill Holden, Vernon Gar
rett, Bob McCormick, Elmer Hall, Bob
Bradshaw, besides whom were Mr.
and Mrs. Hayward, Bill Main, and
The past week-end has been an ex
tremely busy one socially for the Uni
versity people. Of foremost interest
is the Sophomore dance in the Gym
nasium, where the class of 1915 has
done everything in its power to make
this dance one long to be remembered.
Saturday afternoon was the Y. W. C.
A. Pageant and the Beth Reah "at
home.” Friday evening the Oregon
Club held a Christmas party in Vil
lard and in the afternoon the Wo
man’s Council had its Annual Open
Meeting. Friday evening the football
tram was entertained at the Chi
Omega house with a dance.
The Sophomore danee is being held
this evening in the. Men’s Gymnasium.
The decorations of holly, mistletoe,
and evergreens give a most attractive
holiday aspect. An electrically illum
inated program, which Hashes one
hall" minute before each dance, gives
warning- of the approaching dance and
was planned to eliminate the usual
last mad rush. The programs are
very attractive and novel. Patrons
and patronesses are President and
Mis. P 1.. Campbell, Professor and
Mrs .1 K. Hovard. Professor and Mrs.
K II Dearborn, Mrs. Fllen M. Pennell,
and Miss M. Ruth Guppy.
