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 lot. 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 It Is by uo means to be thought that the work of the students Is accom plished. Registration may be effect ed any time up to the nineteenth and during the intervening ten days, a vnst amount of work may still be ac complished. Then on November 4, let every student vote, and not con tent merely with this, see to It that his or her friends and acquaintances avail themselves of their right to the franchise. The fate or success of the appro priation rests first with the voters scattered over the state, but In » <*r-ur<ely less degree It rests with th' Oregon students. 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. APPOINTMENTS 10 MUTES MADE Drs.

FOUR DEBATES WILL - BE HELD TfilS YEAR 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. A. C. 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 upon.
