THE PROBLEM OF OREGON
SPIRIT SOLVED AT LAST
The Committee on Constitutional
Revision is at last ready to report,
and our antiquated instrument of
student government bids fair to be
come the practical, useful, workable
document that it should be. The
larger part of the proposed amend
ments are of minor importance;
merely the clearing away of useless
and obsolete phrases and provisions.
The change most worthy of note and
of greatest value to the University
is the amendment changing ,the stu
dent fee from live to eight dollars,
thus enabling each student to receive
at the time of registration and with
out extra cost u season ticket admit
ting him to all inter-collegiate con
tests held upon the campus during the
At present the .student pays ms
five dollars and receives nothing in
return. Then, in order to attend the
events of the year, he is forced to
pay out, a little at a time, from
twelve to fifteen dollars for admis
sion. As a matter of fact a non
student is permitted to enjoy the
varsity games at a less cost than u
student is permitted, for he has only
admission to puy, while the student
pays that and also a Student llody
an outsider. It will give to the stu
dents maintain these things and if
any are to receive extra privileges
they should be the ones. The pro
posed amendment will make the total
cost to a student less than that to
an outsider. It will give to hte stu
dent for three dollars what he now
pays twelve for.
The measure will tend to equalize
the burden of keeping up our ath
letic and other activities. As it is
men contribute by far the greater
proportion; the very nature of things
makes it inevitable. On the average
the women here at Oregon are the
more fortunate financially. Women
will not undertake to come to college
unless they have the n>**ans to do so
comfortably. The chance of getting
through under other conditions is too
small. On the other hand, a remark
ably large number of the men are
trusting to their ability to struggle
through by their own efforts. It is
no more than just that each student,
man or woman, should bear an equal
share of Student Tlody expenses.
The most vital reason for adopting
this amendment is the revival of Ore
gon Spirit whieh it will undoubtedly
bring about. With every student j
having free access to all games, the
attendance will more than double.
Practically every 't alent will attend
and this will insurt a great increase
of enthusiasm and patriotism. Peo
ple absolutely cannot become enthus
iastic over things they d not see
We can shout and orate about the
lack of University Spirit until
Doomsday, hut we cannot make a
crowd of peoph wl.o never attend,
see any reason for supporting loy
ally the men who are t ntering the
contest for the sake of Old Oregon.
The fee thus increased will still he
lighter than that of most Dniversi
ties. In its study of the constitu
tions of various schools, the commit
tee has discovered that the usun/l
fee where free admission to games is
granted, is ten dollars. Careful fig
uring, however, has led it to be
lieve that eight dollars, with the pres
ent efficient method of managing, will
enable Oregon to steer clear of
The committee deserves commenda
tion for the thorough and conscienti
ous work it has done in solving
the problem of the A. S. U. O. con
stitution. Its recommendation re
garding the increased fee, especially,
should receive the unanimous support
of every student.

Date for Utah Contest Deferred—
Motschenhacher and Zimmerman
The Oregon-Utah debate will prob
ably be held after the triangular de

according to a telegram received
from Utah this morning by Debate
Coach Robert Prescott. Utah claims
that it will be impossible for hew to
be prepared within the short time
before the debate. As a result of
this news, Howard Zimmerman, who
was to have made the Utah trip with

WHAT THE ALBANY HERALD
THINKS OF THE EMERALD
“The Oregon Emerald, the official
thrice a week newspaper that is is
sue by the students of the Univer
sity of Oregon at Eugene is one of
the livest of the papers that come to
the exchange desk, each department

and well maintained. The front page
of the last issue bears a cartoon of
J. E. Murphy, of the Oregon Journal-,
who has consented to draw cartoons
for the Emerald.
The issue also contains a number
of fine halftone newspaper cuts and a
goodly amount of live reading matter.
Its pages are quite liberally patron
ized by the merchants of Eugene with
modern advertising, which shows that
the publication is appreciated in its
home town as well as outside.”—Al
