The results brought about In the
Increased registration following the
publishing of student resolutions In
the newspapers throughout the state,
shows undeniably the Influence which
the students of the University can
exercise when they so deBlre. In al
most every town where a copy of the
"district resolution" appeared in the
local paper, an immediate gain wus
noticed the next day In the number
of voters who realized the necessity
of taking the step required as a pre
liminary to fhe final use of the bal
In the last three or four yeurB the
cry has often been raised that the
old Oregon spirit Is dying out, that
the students no longer take u vital,
active Interest In the things pertain
ing to student body affairs and to
the University. This spirit has not
been dead but has only been lying
dormant, waiting only for the stim
ulus of such a crisis as that which
at present faces the University to
arouse It to Its fullest fighting vigor.
The right start has been made In
the letter writing campaign recently
Inaugurated, but with this finished

A NKW OREGON HONG.
The agitation for another Oregon
song in a move tu the right direction.
With aome thirty-seven years behind
It the University has been slngunlrly
deficient In bringing these manifes
tations of true college feeling.
In other colleges this has not been
neglected, but has been made a mat
ter of prime Importance, and as a
result songs of real merit have been
written, which haw lived for years
and will continue to live In the minds
of graduates of these Institutions, as
a big factor In the things which
make college worth while.
This is not to say that the qual
ity of Oregon songs Is deficient. The
exact reverse Is the case But the
quantity is lucking and there shou d
be enough talent among the students
at Oregon to fill this need.

Prospects for Winning Team
Dubious With Only One
Veteran on Hand
With only one .member of last
year’s debate team, Dal King, left
for the 1913 season, Coach Bert Pres
cott is facing the problem of build
ing up a debating team which will be
able to sustain the recojd made by
last year’s talkers. Four big debates
are scheduled, one with Washington,
one with Stanford, and two with O.
As to prospects for the develop
ment of this team, Mr. Prescott only
looks sad and refuses to make any
statement except that he considers
that it should not be difficult to
draw conclusions as to the condition
of debating when it is learned that of
the two old men back in school, one,
Vernon Motschenbacher, has an
nounced that because of his other
work he will be unaoie to take part
in forensic events.
Subject Still Unchosen.
Oregon’s selection for the general
subject, “The Cabinet responsibility
for the National Budget,” has already
been sent to the secretary of the Tri
state league at Stanford. In about
a week’s time, Mr. Prescott expects
to be notified of the subject turned
in by Washington and Stanford. The
representatives of the interested col
leges will then name their first, sec
ond and third choices.
The subject finally selected
through this means will be subjected
to the various colleges, and from it a I
specific question will be chosen in the
same manner as that followed in
picking the general subject.
Mr. Prescott announces that try
outs for the squad from which the de
bating teams will eventually be pick
ed, will begin about two weeks after
the general subject has been settled
